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 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NXT Takeover: Dallas 4/1/16

Tonight, NXT is here for Wrestlemania weekend.  Finn Balor will face off against Samoa Joe for the NXT World Title.  We will also see Bayley face her biggest challenge when the Women’s Title is on the line against Asuka.  We will also see the NXT debut of Austin Aries.

But we start the night off with the NXT Takeover kick-off show.  And it all starts in 5 minutes.

We are live in Dallas, earlier today the champion and challenger entered the building.  Who wins the match?  Finn Balor or Samoa Joe?

Renee Young welcomes us to the kick-off show, with Lita and Mauro Ranallo.

2 blockbuster main events.  Bayley Vs Asuka for the NXT Women’s Title, and Samoa Joe Vs Finn Balor, for the NXT World Title.

3 titles are on the line, what are the odds of new champions tonight?

We hear from the newest NXT broadcast member, Cathy Kelly.  Sami Zayn will be her guest later tonight.

NXT Tag Titles with The Revival Vs American Alpha.

Austin Aries will make his NXT debut against Baron Corbin.

Who wins between Aries and Corbin?

“Mayhem” by Halestorm is the official theme song for tonight’s NXT Takeover.

Bayley will face Asuka, tonight.  A video is showing here.

Sami Zayn is going to face Shinsuke Nakamura, tonight.  This should be a classic.

Cathy Kelly is with Sami Zayn.

Sami has a big weekend, the biggest weekend as he calls it, with tonight and his Wrestlemania match.  There is a legacy Sami has in NXT, and this is a way to cement that legacy.  Shinsuke wants to start his own NXT legacy, but it won’t start tonight.

2 days away from seeing The Rock, at Wrestlemania.

Last night, at Wrestlemania Axxess, they showed the new Dusty Rhodes statue, with Cody and Dustin honoring him.

Video is showing Balor Vs Joe.

NXT Takeover starts shortly.

Tonight, it’s the heart and soul of NXT vs The New Lions.

NXT Takeover:  Dallas is now.

Tom Phillips and Corey Graves, begin the show.

Our first match is for the NXT Tag Team Titles.  American Alpha Vs The Revival kick off the show.

American Alpha win the match with a Grand Amplitude combo.  A fantastic match to start the show, and the fans loved every second.

The stars are in the arena.  Jim Ross, Michelle Beadle, Kento Ibushi, Funaki.

NXT goes on tour this summer.

Earlier today, Bayley was at Wrestlemania Axxess.  Tonight, she will defend her Women’s Title against Asuka.

But now, Austin Aries, “The Greatest Man That Ever Lived” against “The Lone Wolf” Baron Corbin.

Austin Aries wins the match with a rollup, after Corbin tried End of Days.

A well worked, slow match which worked, because of Baron’s size.

The Rock comes back to Wrestlemania in 2 days.

Earlier today, champion and challenger arrived at the arena.

Our next match, Sami Zayn Vs Shinsuke Nakamura.

“The Bad Guy” Razor Ramon and X-Pac are in the house.

Time to be entertained here.

I don’t know how the next two matches can top this.  Nakamura wins the match with Kinsashe,  An instant classic with these two, and like I said before, we still have two matches left.

Sami and Nakamura shake hands after the match.

This feels like this is Sami’s swan song since he is in WWE.

WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is tomorrow night.

Samoa Joe is warming up for his title match.

But next, Women’s Title match is on the line.  Bayley Vs Asuka.

Asuka won the NXT Women’s Title, with an Asuka Lock, and Bayley never tapped, but she passed out.

Another great match here.  Bayley is tended to by officials, and Asuka locks eyes at her.

Big title change here.

It is time for our main event of the evening, Balor Vs Joe, for the NXT World Title.

Before the match starts, a Bobby Roode sighting.

Balor wins the match with Joe’s momentum, and pinned him.  Joe was cut open during the first few seconds of the match with a headbutt, but this still was a hard-hitting match.  After the ending, the two faced off, with Joe looking at Blor from the outside of the ring, in disbelief over losing to the champ.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

What a start to Wrestlemania weekend.  NXT now has a legacy to build on, after being shown on WWE Network for 2 years, and all you need to do is see the Zayn Vs Nakamura match.  Zayn has cemented his NXT legacy, now its Nakamura’s turn.  The same can be said about Asuka and Bayley.

I think this is the best NXT Takeover I have seen, what did you think of the show?  Send me your thoughts.

Also tonight, Baron Corbin faces Samoa Joe, in a Number One Contenders match.

Corbin Vs Joe video is being shown.

Joe is standing by, does he have any concern for Baron Corbin?

Tonight, Baron won’t have those opportunities, because he faces Joe man to man, face to face.  Tonight, Joe will put Corbin down, and he will put him sleep.

Joe has been wrestling all over the world for 16 years.

Tonight, Apollo Crews makes his NXT in-ring debut.

Also tonight, double main event for the NXT Women’s Title.  Bayley Vs Sasha Banks.

Bayley Vs Banks video is being shown.

Bayley has so much to prove tonight.  I have never been a fan of the gimmick, but tonight, they have a chance to just let Bayley do what she does best, wrestle.

Greg Hamilton and Dasha Fuentes are outside the Barclays Center, with the fans.

NXT Tag Titles are on the line tonight.  Murphy and Blake face The Vaudevillians.

Lita is teasing that she might come out with The Vaudevillians tonight to counter Alexa Bliss.

A SUV pulls up, and it’s Neville and Finn Balor.

Cesaro stops by to wish Balor luck, he faces Owens tomorrow night.

Tonight, Tyler Breeze face Jushin Thunder Liger, for the first time in NXT.

Tyler is with Rich Brennan, who is taking a photo shoot.

Tyler puts a Jushin Liger mask on Rich’s face.

Balor Vs Owens video is playing.

NXT Takeover:  Brooklyn starts now.

HHH is in the ring, it started as a whisper, until we started to blurt it out now.  We heard you, and started this quest, you wanted more.  We told you NXT is the future, you said the future is now.

And we pan to the crowd with an amazing house.  We are NXT.

Our first match is Tyler Breeze Vs Jushin Thunder Liger.

Rich Brennan, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton welcomes us to the show.

Liger wins with a Liger Bomb.  Amazing Liger is 50 years old, and he can still fly like the best.

Amazing start to the show.

The Wolfpack is in the house.  Great ovation for Hall, Nash, and X-Pack.

Bayley is getting hugs from Charlotte and Becky Lynch.  A big night for Bayley.

Nia Jax is coming soon to NXT.

NXT Tag Title match is up now.  The Vaudevillians Vs Blake and Murphy.

No Lita, but Blue Pants came out to counter Bliss.

The Vaudevillians win the Tag Titles win with a Whirling Dervish, after Blue Pants took care of Alexa Bliss.

We are in The Barclays Center, a big WWE weekend.

Earlier today, we see the entrance of Finn Balor, Neville, and Cesaro.

Our next match is “The Perfect 10” Tye Dillinger Vs Apollo Crews.

Apollo wins with a Standing Shooting Star Press.

Impressive that a guy his size can do the high-flying.  I loved his dropkick.

NXT GM William Regal is welcoming us, he is introducing us to the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.  A tournament starts in 2 weeks, with the winners being declared on the next NXT Takeover, October 7th.

We miss “The American Dream”.

The 4 Tough Enough finalists are at ringside, and coming up next, we will see Samoa Joe Vs Baron Corbin.

Joe wins with the Coquina Clutch.  Corbin doesn’t tap out, but he passes out.

I liked that ending, because Corbin is still protected.

The stars are out tonight.  Sgt. Slaughter, Ric Flair, Kana, and of course Team B.A.D. are there to watch their girl, Sasha Banks.

Enter Stephanie McMahon.

15,000+ are watching this show at Barclays Center.  Millions are watching at WWE Network.  This is history, and a few weeks ago, Stephanie started a Divas Revolution on Raw.  But the truth is, it started in NXT.  HHH said it best, NXT Women’s division isn’t a part of the main event, they are the main event.

And our NXT Women’s Title match is up now.  Bayley Vs Sasha Banks.

Bayley defeats Sasha Banks in what will go down as one of the best women’s matches of the year.  She wins with a Bayley to Belly.

I might be a fan of Bayley after all, if she continues down this path as a serious competitor.

Charlotte and Becky come out to congratulate Bayley, and we see Sasha giving Bayley a big hug too.  An emotional moment, and we also get a mention of The Four Horsewomen, which all four started together in NXT developmental.

Just an awesome moment, and Sasha has a match tomorrow night at Summerslam.

Earlier tonight, HHH made an announcement that NXT will be touring in the UK in December.

Our main event is up now.  Kevin Owens Vs Finn Balor, for the NXT World Title, in a Ladder Match.

Kevin’s family is in the front row, Kevin also brought up during his entrance that when WWE Network started, he was at home watching NXT.  But now, he’s main eventing on NXT, which says it all.

Finn retains his title in a brutal match here, with a Coup De Gras off the top of the ladder.  And before that, Balor pulled off a Belly to Back Suplex on the ladder.  Kevin looked like he was dead, and he has a match tomorrow night.

Incredible match here, and Finn celebrates the win, ending the show.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Once again, the effort was there, the payoff was amazing.  All 6 matches clicked.  It was special to see Jushin Liger in a WWE ring, and that just kicked the show off.

The two main events though was what brought us to the dance.  I have to give the nod to Banks Vs Bayley as best match of the night, but Owens Vs Balor was amazing too.

I need to start paying attention to NXT again on a weekly basis.

Summerslam is tomorrow, so those women and men better bring it, because NXT Brooklyn set the bar very high.

What were your thoughts on the show?  If you have WWE Network, see this event, it’s worth it to see it again.  I will talk to you all tomorrow, for Summerslam.

WWE NXT 5/27/15…Samoa Joe Speaks Out

After last week’s Unstoppable special, we see the fallout from the event, including the debut of Samoa Joe.

WWE NXT is now.

We are at Full Sail University, in Orlando, Florida.

Sami Zayn is here.

But no, it’s Kevin Owens with Sami’s entrance theme.

We see footage from this past Monday’s Raw, Owens attacks Cena with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

He was here to challenge a NXT Title open challenge, but the fact is Kevin is not an insincere person.  And he feels he shouldn’t put their title against anyone that hasn’t earned the title shot.  He is all about defending his title against people who have earned the shot.

We hear John Cena sucks chants, and Kevin hasn’t heard the fans say Sami Zayn sucks, but he does.

He has heard people say that he is not a good man, but Kevin is a good man.  Kevin ended that horrendous theme song for Sami Zayn.  He doesn’t understand why people are surprised over what happened to Sami, because he warned Sami if he showed up, he would take him out, and he did that.

He defended this title, and that is what the essence of taking care of his family, and being a good man.

Also another example?  When Samoa Joe came out, he stepped away, and gave Joe his moment.  If Joe steps into his face again, he will end him as well.  And speaking of being a good man, this Sunday, he will take care of Cena and prove that the REAL champ is here.

Here comes NXT General Manager, William Regal.

William tells Owens the only reason he still has a job is because Regal touched Owens first, and Owens headbutted Regal.  But in the 6 months he has been here, he has laid out many superstars.   Alex Riley, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Hideo Itami.

Owens will take credit for the others, but he insists he had nothing to do with Itami.

Owens warned Sami what was going to happen, so that is on him.  And frankly, Regal put the match together, so it’s on him too.

Enter Solomon Crowe.

Solomon heard Owens in the back say he thinks only people he face will have to earn the shots.  And Owens claim he is a good guy?  After what he saw with Zayn, he thinks Kevin is full of crap, and he’s scared because he knows deep down inside, he will lose.

Owens grants Crowe an opportunity, and Regal makes it happen.

So Owens laid out Neville, Riley, Zayn, Zayn, Zayn.  Well, at the end of the match, Owens will stretcher out Crowe too.

Rich Brennan, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves welcome us to the show.

Last week, we see the video of someone attacking Itami, with Owens walking by.

Hideo Itami blew out his shoulder.  He doesn’t know who attacked him, and when he comes back, there will be no stopping him.

Bayley Vs Emma is next.

Last week, we hear an interview with Zack Ryder.  He was sitting next to a crazy guy like Mojo, and Mojo is hyped, running behind Zack.

Bayley Vs Emma is now.

Emma has new music, by the way.

Emma wins with her Emma Lock, making Bayley tap.

Dana Brooke helped Emma take out Bayley and here comes Charlotte to help, but Dana and Emma took her out too.

Footage from Unstoppable, with Corbin Vs Rhyno.

Footage from last week with Renee Young interviewing Corbin.  He showed that he is the only unstoppable force.

Rhyno approaches him, and he had fun.  He says they do it again, sometime.  The sooner, the better.

Solomon Crowe Vs Kevin Owens.

We see video footage of Becky Lynch.

Elias Sampson and Mike Rollins will now face the team of Blake and Murphy, with Alexa Bliss accompanying them.

Blake and Murphy win with a Vertical Suplex, and Frogsplash combination.

Alexa gives one of the ham and eggers a Sparkle Splash for good measure.

Finn Balor won the Number One Contender match and defeated Tyler Breeze last week.

Finn is in action, next.

Devin Taylor is interviewing Blake and Murphy, with Bliss.  Blake and Murphy are winners, she is a winner.  So winners gravitate with each other.  Carmella is the Queen of Staten Island.  You know what is known for?  A garbage dump, so no wonder why she associates herself with Cass and Enzo.  Next week, they have a match, and Alyssa will send her back to the garbage dump.

Finn Balor Vs Tye Dillinger is now.

Balor wins with the Coup De Gras, picking up the pinfall.

Owens Vs Crowe is next.

Earlier today, the interviewer guys is with Jason Jordan has found his perfect partner, and we see Chad Gable.

Jason tells Chad he has a partner, and Chad hands him one of his towels

Our main event, Kevin Owens Vs Solomon Crowe is now.

Owens won in relative ease with a Pop-Up Powerbomb.

Just when Owens is about to take care of Crowe, here comes Samoa Joe.

Joe comes into the ring, and Owens leaves.  Giving Joe a warning next time he does this, Joe will be in the same position as Crowe is.

The show ends here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Just a paint-by-numbers show tonight.  The highlight for me was seeing Alexa Bliss as a heel.  I think she can be a big star someday.  She reminds me of Trish Stratus.  She is only 23 years old, so she will learn, and get better.

I love hearing Kevin Owens talk too.  He signed a WWE contract, so he will appear on Raw too, so it should be interesting what we see this Sunday night when he faces Cena.

What were your thoughts of the show?  Send them to me here.  I will talk to you tomorrow for Elimination Chamber.
