Sasha: Becky what are you doing out here?

Becky:  When you were out on the beach I was headlining this division. I was putting in the time and carrying this banner. You need to earn your spot. Asuka I want a piece of your arse tonight. When I take my title back at Summer Slam then I will set my sights on that dope Rhea Ripley.

Ember: That’s right sis.

Charly: It has been discussed that both of you keep getting title matches by constantly complaining to Stephanie McMahon.

Naomi: Charles let’s be honest here. Me and sis should be champions today. Asuka cost me the Raw Women’s Championship at Stomping Grounds.

Ember: And I would be the SmackDown Women’s Champion if not for the Horsewomen interrupting my match at Stomping Grounds.

Charly: You don’t sound too thrilled to say their names.

Stephanie: I am not. And you said it before. After Summer Slam if they lose they will go to the back of the line. Naomi and Ember are great performers. But they constantly complain. This is the third straight PPV where they are getting title shots. Does anyone even realize how many other deserving superstars who have not appeared on the last two PPV’s? Charlotte Flair. Bayley.

Kayla: Stephanie also made it official that Shayna Baszler will defend the Raw Women’s title against Sasha Banks.

Heyman: Sasha the quitter says she demanded that. Shayna Baszler demanded that match. Since the quitter returned she thinks that the WWE owes her something. Sasha, you have faced a lot of opponents. You have had a lot of great matches. But come Summer Slam you will be in the ring with an animal. You have never faced the likes of Shayna Baszler before. Sasha put it this way. Shayna is Ronda Rousey times two. And the Queen Of Spades is very angry right now.

Kayla: Speaking of anger. What are your thoughts on the happenings in the backstage the last few weeks?

Heyman: Stephanie better figure out what is going on before we handle this our way. If we find out it’s Ric’s daughter. There will be two wrestlers named Flair that are retired.

Renee: The finger is being pointed at Charlotte.

Renee: What is Lacey’s strategy in this match?

Paige: She can’t use her hand. She has to use her legs. Io is the far better mat wrestler. Lacey has no real shot. But that cast could be used as a weapon.

The woman in black goes back under the ring. Lacey comes back into the ring unaware of what happened. Io is on her knees with the chair behind her back.

Charly: How do you get through this match with a tag team partner who might not have your back.

Sasha: Charly that is going to be tough. But Becky is a competitor and I know she wants to win every match she has. But do I completely trust her?

Becky walks in on the interview.

Becky: Charly why are you talking with this dope when The Man is in this match. Sasha, you don’t trust me. Good. Then you should stay in the back and watch me beat these two planks. I’ll smack their heads off their shoulders.

Charly: Becky don’t forget Asuka and Shayna Baszler will be watching the match from ringside.

Becky: I don’t care who is there.

Stephanie: To be fair Becky you did the same to Asuka first.

Becky: If you would have given me my rematch I would not have had to do what I had to do.

Stephanie: I told you they have to show up.

Heyman: My girls were not part of this tonight. Why are they getting dragged into this?

Stephanie: Paul I am running a wrestling show and I am committed to giving these fans the best show possible. I know your tricks. Whoever you got better be in that ring against Naomi tonight.

WWE Women’s Evolution EP#16: Sasha vs Shayna,Queen of Ring,More Horsewomen,TV Title Chaos,Poor Mandy

WOMEN’S EVOLUTION # 16 July 25th

SASHA BANKS OPENS THE SHOW

Sasha Banks’ music hits to open the show and she makes her way out to the ring to a huge ovation.

Renee: The Boss is back. Sasha Banks shocked the world last week when she made her return to the WWE.

Paige: She immediately got the attention of Raw Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler. I can’t wait to hear what she has to say.

Sasha grabs a microphone and gets ready to talk but the cheering of the fans will not stop.

Sasha: Did you miss me?

The fans are screaming with cheers. Sasha gets emotional.

Sasha: Thank you all for that. I have one thing to say. I’m Baaaaack.

The fans erupt once again.

Renee: Yes. The Boss is back.

Sasha: It looks like some things have changed in the last 3 months. I see some new faces. I see the women of the WWE have their own TV show. What kind of TV show would this be without the Boss on it?

The fans erupt again.

Sasha: The question I kept hearing is why did Sasha Banks leave and what did she want? Both are good questions and I promise I will answer those questions in due time. But what I can answer is why am I back. I am back because all of you demanded it. I am back because all of you deserve it. I am back because my sisters needed someone to watch their back. I am back because my sisters and I are going to take over this women’s division.

The fans cheer again. Then Paul Heyman comes out with Shayna Baszler. The crowd starts to boo loudly.

Renee: Look who is here to break up the party.

Heyman: Sasha Banks is back. Yay. The Boss is back. Yay.

Sasha: Heyman I have been watching you insult every woman in this division. Before you insult me how about I get out of this ring and walk up that ramp and stick Shayna’s head up your fat ass.

The crowd cheers. Heyman holds back Shayna.

Renee: You tell him, Sasha. Let her go, Heyman.

Paige: Be careful Sasha. The Horsewomen don’t play fair.

Heyman: Sasha I can answer the questions everyone wants answered. The same questions you didn’t want to answer just a moment ago. You left because you are a quitter. You quit on all of these fans. You let a C level tag team defeat what was that name you called yourselves the Boss Hug connection for the Women’s Tag Team Championship. I know you have been watching. Those same belts are now around the waists of two of the Horsewomen.

The fans boo.

Heyman: You came back because of all of the sheep sitting in this arena and watching on TV. You left because you wanted opportunities handed to you instead of taking them like the Horsewomen did. Look around. Do you remember that day in 2017?. It was Sasha Banks. It was your ex tag team partner Bayley who Shayna Baszler sent her career even lower than the mid-card level. There was Charlotte Flair. The Queen. Well, my Queen of Spades demolished her. And of course, there is The Man. Raggedy Ann. Who just this past April had two championship belts. One of them was taken by this woman.

Heyman points at Baszler.

Heyman: The other one she lost when Stephanie McMahon did not allow us to protect her. You might have been watching at home. So now you can hear it in person. Ronda Rousey remembers when you did this to her along with Bayley and Becky No Belts.

Heyman holds up the four fingers.

Heyman: Those three can’t even agree on if it is night or day. But I am actually glad you came back. You saved us the trip of finding that rock you were hiding under when you left here.

Heyman and Shayna are walking towards the ring.

Heyman: it is so much easier when you come to us to get your ass whooping.

Heyman instructs Shayna to get into the ring. Sasha attacks her and they are brawling all over the ring.

Renee: Get her Sasha. Get her.

Sasha clotheslines Shayna out of the ring. The crowd erupts and Sasha is screaming at Shayna to get back in the ring.

Heyman: Sasha we are going to make this easy for you. Shayna told me she wants to break your arm and end this little comeback of yours early. Tonight in that very ring it will be Sasha Banks vs Shayna Baszler for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Stephanie McMahon comes out.

Stephanie: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. There you go again, Paul. Are you trying to make a match on your own?

Heyman stares at Stephanie.

Stephanie: Only I make matches on this show. Sasha Banks. Welcome back. It is nice to see you back in this ring after your unauthorized vacation. I heard you were watching the show while you were away. I am wondering why you could not return my calls. But that doesn’t matter right now. The Boss is back.

The crowd screams.

Stephanie: While I am glad you are back. That just confirms what we have said about this division. This is where you want to be if you are a female wrestler. But. But as much as I hate to agree with Paul Heyman. And by the way, I want to see you stick Shayna’s head up his fat ass.

Heyman and Shayna start to get mad.

Stephanie: You can’t just come back and demand a title match without earning it. I mean it would only be fair to the women in the back who have been fighting the last 3 months while you were sitting on the beach. So if you want a title shot then you will earn it. So tonight in the main event it will be Sasha Banks vs Kairi Sane. Good luck Sasha.

Renee: What a match Stephanie McMahon just made.

Paige: I have to agree with Stephanie. Sasha needs to earn a title shot just like everybody else.

Renee: We already have a huge night and now it is even bigger. We have all 4 quarterfinal matches for the Queen Of The Ring.

Paige: Yes we do. We have Rhea Ripley against Jessamyn Duke. We have Becky Lynch against Lacey Evans. We have Asuka against Ember Moon and Naomi vs Io Shirai.

Renee: Mandy Rose also has issued a challenge to Bayley. Last week Paige you tried to mediate this situation with Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.

Paige: I honestly don’t know what to think anymore. But Mandy needs to be careful. If she is not focused on this match she will be in trouble.

Renee: We do know that Sonya DeVille is not here this week.

Paige: We have a big night ahead of us

KAYLA BRAXTON WITH ALEXA BLISS AND ZELINA VEGA

Renee: There are bodies all over the place. Look at the faces of the Sky Pirates.

Paige: We have not seen the last of the Sky Pirates and the Horsewomen.

 

Charly Caruso is standing by with Becky Lynch

Charly: Becky you will be facing Naomi and Ember Moon tonight in a ladder match for your Smackdown Women’s Championship. How are you going to attack this match?

Becky: Stephanie McMahon likes to use all of us as pawns in her game. But I am the champion and I will do whatever I have to do to keep my belt and slap the heads off the shoulders of those two dopes I am fighting tonight.

Charly: Are you concerned about Asuka maybe cashing in her briefcase tonight?

Becky: Asuka can do whatever she wants. I will be ready.

FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION SHAYNA BASZLER VS LACEY EVANS

Renee: Next we have Shayna Baszler defending her RAW Women’s Championship against Lacey Evans.

Paige: Stephanie McMahon has barred the Horsewomen from getting involved in this match.

Renee: But she has not barred any of her posse like Tamina and Rhea Ripley.

Paige: I also want to point out under the rules of this match Stephanie McMahon has also invoked the No Disqualification rules as well.

Renee: We can literally see anything happen.

Shayna starts the match off hot with a flurry of power moves and quick pin attempts.

Renee: Shayna is very aware of Tamina on the outside and wants to keep Lacey in the ring.

After 8 minutes of action with Shayna being dominant and the only times Lacey gets the advantage is when Tamina gets involved Shayna starts to get frustrated. Shayna superkicks Lacey. Tamina gets on the apron and Shayna clotheslines her off. Shayna is squaring Lacey up for a spear. Lacey staggers to her feet and Shayna gives her a massive spear. Shayna goes for the pin and Tamina pulls Lacey out of the ring. Shayna hits the ropes and hits a suicide dive on Tamina and Lacey. Shayna and Tamina start to brawl into the crowd. Lacey follows them as they make their way towards the back. Tamina throws Shayna into a brick wall headfirst. Lacey is giving Tamina instructions to beat up Shayna even more. Tamina power bombs Shayna through a table.

Renee: Lacey is going to win the title if this keeps up.

Out of nowhere Asuka superkicks Lacey.

Paige: Here come Asuka and she might cash in on Shayna.

Tamina now starts to fight with Asuka. Shayna starts to crawl back out towards the ramp with Lacey following her.

Renee: Smart move by Shayna to get out of the backstage area.

Asuka kicks Tamina in the midsection then smashes her head on a table. Rhea Ripley from behind gives Asuka a knee to her back. Then Rhea starts to roughhouse Asuka as she laid on the ground. Charlotte Flair hits Rhea in the back with a chair. As Rhea rolls around Charlotte continues to hit Rhea with the chair. Tamina staggers up and starts to go back down to ringside. Asuka goes after her and jumps on Tamina’s back sending her crashing on the ramp head first. Asuka starts to hit Tamina when Tamina grabs her throat and starts choking her. In the back we see Charlotte lock in the figure 8 on Rhea. Shayna and Lacey are now ringside.

Renee: This has erupted into a brawl.

Paige: Now it looks like we might get a one on one.

Lacey grabs a chair and jams it into Shayna’s midsection twice backing her to the ring post. Lacey goes for the woman’s right but Shayna ducks and she hits the steel post. Lacey’s hand is hurt real bad. Shayna grabs Lacey by the hair and smashes her head into the steel steps. Then she puts her hand on the steps and grabs the chair and smashes her hand on the steps. Lacey screams in pain. The referee goes to Lacey to see if she is alright.

Renee: Shayna Baszler is sadistic.

Paige: You do what you have to do to keep your title.

Shayna grabs Lacey and throws her back in the ring and gives her a twisted arm stomp. Shayna does this three times while watching Asuka and Tamina fight up the ramp. Asuka gives Tamina a knee to her jaw knocking her down. As Asuka makes her way to the ring Shayna points at her then gives Lacey Evans the Fujiwara Armbar. Lacey taps out immediately but Shayna does not let go. Finally when Asuka gets to ringside Shayna breaks the hold and stands up. She makes a gesture inviting Asuka into the ring. Asuka backs off.

Paige: Smart move by Asuka to back away.

Renee: What do you mean? When is she going to cash in that briefcase?

Paige: Asuka will cash in when the champion is at their weakest. Shayna is in complete control right now.

Renee: The doctors are checking on Lacey’s arm and hand. I think Shayna broke something.

Paige: What a match and Shayna Baszler retains her RAW Women’s Championship.

LADDER MATCH SMACKDOWN WOMAN’S CHAMPION BECKY LYNCH VS NAOMI VS EMBER MOON

Renee: This match will be physical just by its nature.

Paige: Just a few weeks ago both these women came so close to being champions. Now they have to fight each other plus Becky Lynch to achieve their dream

Becky starts off hot in this match. She hits a high knee on Naomi knocking her to the mat. She mixes it up with Ember kicking her in the gut. Then gives her a bexploder. Naomi gets up and Becky dropkicks her out of the ring. Ember hits Becky from behind. Ember whips her into the ropes and follows up with a knee to the midsection. Ember starts to walk around the ring and looks at the ladders outside. Becky hits a dropkick to the side of her head. Then Becky gives her a shining wizard. Naomi then gets back in the ring and gives Becky a split-legged jawbreaker. Then picks Becky up and gives her a running turnbuckle bulldog. Ember now gets up. Ember and Naomi look at each other and point towards Becky and they start to double team her.

Renee: Are you surprised to see them double teaming Becky?

Paige: At some point, you have to go into business for yourself. There can’t be co-winners here.

After a few minutes of double-teaming Becky gets knocked out of the ring. Naomi and Ember start to fight with each other. Becky now grabs a ladder and puts it on the apron. Naomi comes over and Becky snaps the ladder up into her face. Becky gets into the ring and clotheslines Ember. Becky lays the ladder in the corner and throws both Naomi and Ember into the ladder. Becky starts to scream. She takes the ladder and starts to set it up but Naomi stops her. Naomi picks up the ladder and hits Becky with it also clipping Ember in the head. Ember looks to be out cold. Becky is laying on the mat under the ladder. She kicks her legs straight up and kicks the ladder into Naomi’s jaw. Naomi drops the ladder. Becky lays the ladder on the mat. She opens the ladder and puts Naomi in between. Becky goes to the top rope and jumps down on the ladder squeezing Naomi. Becky appears to have inured her leg. The Ladder is bent. Becky goes to the outside to get another ladder. She slides it into the ring. Ember now gets up and dropkicks the ladder into Becky’s midsection as Becky was outside the ring. Ember lays the ladder outside the ring between the apron and the announce table. She slams Becky’s head into the steel steps. Ember grabs the steps and moves them by the ladder.

Renee: What is Ember Moon doing?

Ember body slams Becky on the stairs. Ember climbs to the top turnbuckle and is just standing there.

Paige: I don’t like the looks of this.

As Becky gets up Ember gives her an eclipse on the ladder. The ladder breaks.

Renee: Oh my god.

Paige: I am speechless.

Renee: Becky is not moving.

Ember staggers to her feet and gets excited. Naomi is now back on her feet and runs and kicks Ember baseball style and Ember smashes into the announce table. Naomi smashes Ember’s head on the announce table. Then she lays her body on the table. Naomi goes to the top turnbuckle and drops an elbow on Ember’s body breaking the table.

Renee: These women are going to kill each other.

Becky now starts to come around and she puts a ladder in the ring. She slowly starts to climb the ladder. Naomi gets up and goes to the top turnbuckle and dropkicks the ladder and it spills over. Becky’s neck snaps off the top rope. Ember Moon now starts to move and she crawls into the ring. Naomi starts to climb the ladder but Ember pulls her off by her hair. Ember climbs up and Naomi pulls her down by her hair. Naomi and Ember start brawling. Becky gets up and folds the ladder up and smashes it across the heads of both Ember and Naomi. Becky goes to the outside and gets a table. Becky sets the table up on the outside. Becky staggers to get to the apron. Naomi and Ember both superkick Becky and she falls through the table on the outside. Naomi looks at Ember and clotheslines her. Naomi picks up Ember and gives her a full nelson bomb.

Renee: Becky might be done.

Naomi goes to the outside and gets another table and another ladder. Naomi sets up the table in the ring. Then sets up a ladder. One of the ladders is clearly not under the belt. Ember starts to get up and runs towards Naomi and gives her a step up Enzugiri. Becky starts to get up on the outside. Naomi and Ember start to climb separate ladders. They punch each other as they are climbing. Naomi smashes Ember’s head on the top of the ladder. Naomi gets to the top step but pauses.

Renee: She can’t reach the title. What can she do? Is she going to jump to the other ladder?

Paige: I don’t know what she is going to do.

Naomi standing on the top of the ladder jumps and grabs Ember’s head and bulldogs her through the table.

Paige: Oh my god. How did she do that?

Renee: That was amazing.

Naomi sees Becky start to get up and she gets ready to do a crossbody from the ring. As she springs her body over the top rope Becky grabs part of the table and smashes it on Naomi’s head knocking her out.

Renee: Naomi and Ember are out. All Becky needs to do is get in the ring and climb the ladder to retain her title.

Becky drags her battered body into the ring and sets up the ladder. She climbs the ladder and grabs the belt to win the title.  Becky falls to the ground clutching her title in exhaustion.

Renee: Becky really earned that victory.

Paige: She is completely spent. This match was very physical.

We hear Asuka’s music and she comes running to the ring with a referee.

Renee: Oh no here comes Asuka with a referee.

Paige: Asuka is going to cash in while Becky is hurt and tired.

Asuka says to ring the bell. Becky can’t believe it. She looks at Asuka in disgust.

Renee: Becky Lynch can’t possibly compete in another match

Paige: This is why winning that briefcase is so important.

The bell rings and Asuka immediately rushes towards Becky and gives her a knee to her face. Asuka picks up Becky and gives her a pop-up knee strike.

Renee: Becky is out.

Asuka covers Becky and gets the pin. We have a new Smackdown Women’s Champion and it’s Asuka.

Paige: That’s how you cash in the Money In The Bank Briefcase

Renee: Becky wrestled her heart out against Ember Moon and Naomi.

Asuka celebrates in the ring.

We see Paul Heyman and the Horsewomen drinking champagne and celebrating as they are getting into a limo. Heyman is heard saying “I Can’t wait to address the WWE Universe at Evolution this week.”

Renee: I bet he can’t. Paige, I think we are all in trouble.

THE SHOW ENDS

EMAIL ADDRESS IS BIGSPORTSFANANDMORE@OUTLOOK.COM

DISCLAIMER.  THIS IS MY CREATION AND NOT WWE’S.  I HAVE NO INSIDE KNOWLEDGE OR SOURCE WITHIN WWE.  THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE CREATED AND IS NOT FACTUAL.  THE ONLY RULE I AM USING IS TO BE ON THIS SHOW YOU HAVE TO BE ON THE CURRENT ROSTER.  NXT INCLUDED.  IF YOU ARE LEGIT HURT LIKE NIA AND RONDA YOU WILL BE WRITTEN OFF TV.  I HOPE WHOEVER READS THIS ENJOYS IT.

IN ADDITION, AS YOU CAN SEE I DON’T SCRIPT A FULL MATCH THAT IS TOO MUCH WORK.  OBVIOUSLY I DO SCRIPT HOW I WANT THE MATCH TO END.

Fastlane Review

FASTLANE

Well this was unexpected.  The card was vanilla and predictable.  I predicted every announced match correctly except for the New Day vs Nakamura and Rusev.  But the unexpected part was all the craziness before the PPV started and during it.  A lot of seeds were thrown around with Wrestlemania just 4 weeks away now.  The card has become clearer now.  Some of the matches were just ok tonight but you have to like what the WWE creative is doing now.  They made a vanilla PPV exciting.

So we start on the kickoff show with Carmella and Zelina Vega arguing over who should get the next US title shot.  These two are destined to have a good match maybe this week on Smackdown Live.  As much as I love my wife Carmella I don’t think this leads to a one on one match at Wrestlemania.  Maybe a mixed tag team match at Wrestlemania?  Depending on how many matches are on the card.  So anyway the match between Rey Mysterio and Andrade has now been moved to the actual PPV and has become a fatal 4 way for Samoa Joe’s US title with R Truth in the match.  More camera time for my Carmella.

We then see the New Day and find out that the McMahons requested to see Kofi Kingston to talk about the WWE title.  New Day beats Nakamura and Rusev.  Ok match.  Not expecting anything big.  Please get Nakamura and Rusev involved in something big.  Nakamura was super over before they turned him heel.  If anyone saw Total Divas, they know the kind of personality Rusev has.

Now the main show starts.  This show really flowed nicely.  I wonder how it played out in the arena.

The first match was the Uso’s defending the tag team titles against Shane O’Mac and the Miz.  The breakup of Shane and Miz has been inevitable as they are setting up their Wrestlemania match.  So when Shane attacked Miz in front of his father after they lost to the Uso’s this was no surprise to me.  I wish they made the Miz the heel because he is so good as a heel but still a good spot.  The match was good too.  A few big spots especially the mid-air collision between Shane and one of the Uso’s.  Miz got a lot of pops from his home town crowd.  Shane taunting Miz’s dad was a good touch.

Next we have a Wrestlemania Promo. Drew/Corbin/Lashley quick promo for their match.

Elias is in the house and he was not interrupted.  This is a theme that played out through the night as Elias came out a few times to sing a song killing Cleveland.  I love Elias.  Hopefully he will walk the streets of Manhattan during the Wrestlemania week.

Another promo for HHH and Batista for Monday Night Raw.

Again rehashing the New Day from the kickoff show

Next up we have Asuka defending the title against God’s Greatest Creation Mandy Rose. Corey as usual acts like a 15-year old boy in heat whenever Mandy comes out.  I never thought Mandy was going to win this match.  The match was ok.  Asuka is a really good wrestler and she deserves to be in a good program.  Perhaps Asuka is not 100 percent after getting hurt at a house show on Monday night so the WWE did not want her to do too much. The ending really didn’t come off well as Mandy lost balance because of stepping on the ring apron as Sonya Deville went under the ring looking for a kendo stick.  We get teased of a Mandy and Sonya spat so we will see where this one goes.

Next we see back stage where the New Day find Kofi standing out of the McMahon’s office.  He never went in and said he has been waiting for someone to get him.  New Day walk into the office and are like what’s up making their man Kofi wait.  Vince says I was waiting for him.  Vince says the WWE title match is now a triple threat match.  The crowd pops as Vince says the match is happening right now.  New Day is barred from ringside.  I thought it was kind of odd to have this match so early in the card.  Kofi comes out first.  It is announced there is a change to this match and gets screwed as he is facing the Bar in a handicap match.  The championship match is announced for later on in the night.  Let’s further this Kofi getting screwed underdog role as the Bar squash him big time.  But the crowd was popping for Kofi big time.

Back stage with the Boss Hug Connection.  Blah still no buildup for this match.

Here comes Elias again to sign un interrupted.  Now he is again attacking Cleveland and Kofi and the Miz again.  Talks Steelers are better than the Browns.  Loving this Elias angle.

We review the Shane and Miz breakup again.  Kayla asks Shane for an explanation and gets blown off.

Next we have the triple threat tag team match for the belts.  This was a better match than I expected.  Ricochet is so incredible to watch and he has great chemistry with Aleister Black.  The Revival are a good tag team they are just getting booked wrong.  Gable and Roode also showed they are a good tag team.  A lot of good spots in this match.  The Revival retain by pinning Gable.  Ricochet and Black clear the ring at the end.  I am not sure what show they are going to eventually land on but these are three of the best tag teams in the WWE.

Let’s see Charlotte back stage getting her robe on and Becky limping out of the trainer’s room.

Next up is my favorite time of the card.  The fatal 4-way match for the US title.  R Truth and Carmella come out first to get the crowd running.  Mella is rapping now and she is super over with the crowd.  Mella is so beautiful and I am happy she is getting pushed.  This was such a great match.  Big spots all over the place.  Andrade is a future star.  R Truth was always under rated as a performer.  Mysterio still got it and Samoa Joe deserves to be champ through Wrestlemania.  They actually out performed their match from Smackdown Live this past week.  For a big guy Joeis really athletic.  Throw in Carmella lighting up Zelina Vega setting up something between them down the road and this match was well put together.  Joe retains.

Boss Hug Connection vs Nia Jax and Tamina.  Beth Phoenix is announced as the commentator for this match.  I didn’t think much about it because she has been doing this the last couple of months.  Nia and Tamina together are the biggest forces in the woman’s division.  The match was ok.  There is not much you can do when you are wrestling someone who is larger than you as Nia and Tamina are.  Bayley dominated this match and they really made Nia and Tamina seem mortal here.  Bayley rolls up Nia for the win.  After the match Nia and Tamina lay waste to the Boss-Hug Connection.  You almost knew that Beth Phoenix was going to say something.  Beth hits Tamina.  Nia lays out Beth.  Here comes Nattie.  She gets laid out.  I am kind of liking what they are doing with Nia and Tamina.  They eventually will be tag team champs.  Now we will see what happens with Beth Phoenix.  Maybe a Wrestlemania match?  It’s really great to see a lot of women’s angles being created.  Did someone say weekly female show?

It’s time for the Triple Threat match with Daniel Bryan vs Kevin Owens and Kofi Kingston.  We see the history of this before the match.  WWE is really selling this 3-way match.  KO comes out first.  Then Daniel.  As we are waiting for Kofi we get Mustafa Ali?  No Kofi.  The crowd is booing and chanting for Kofi.  WWE rolled the dice that this match would deliver without Kofi and boy did it deliver.  Kofi will get his match at Wrestlemania.  Why waste it now.  Mustafa really put himself on the map with this match.  The boys are really trying to outdo each other.  KO had several big spots as did Daniel.  The match was great and the crowd eventually got behind it.  Daniel pins Ali after Rowan saved him from a certain pin fall.  I am anxious to see where they go from here with KO.  Also no Sami Zayn, Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper who came back during the weekend at a house show.

Two matches left and they are very predictable.

We get a Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins promo.

We get a review of the Becky Lynch/Charlotte/Ronda story.

Now it’s time for Charlotte vs Becky Lynch.  There isn’t anything else they can do with this angle right now except to do what we or most of us have known for a while now and that is to make it officially a triple threat match.  The ending was really bogus though.  I think we all expected to see Ronda interfere.  But she comes in and hits Becky once causing a DQ and that’s it as Becky laughed.  I would have rather seen Ronda destroy both Becky or Charlotte or have Charlotte attack Becky after Ronda hit her causing the DQ.  Please do us a favor and not have any of these three in a match before Wrestlemania especially Ronda vs Becky.

Now we have yet another Elias concert.  Brilliant.  And what would a WWE TV event be without another cat walk by Lacey Evans.  Please get in the ring already.  Then out of nowhere we see Randy Orton RKO Elias.  Then even more out of nowhere we see AJ Styles give Orton a Phenomenal forearm cementing their Wrestlemania match.

Now for the main event of the Shield vs Drew McIntyre, Lashley and Baron Corbin.

We get a video package of the last two weeks of the Shield.  Now they keep talking about Dean Ambrose not re-signing his contract.  As far as I can remember I have never seen the WWE ever do this.  But they keep talking about it so it makes me think that Dean is not going anywhere.  And maybe the significant changes made in creative is making a big difference.

This match was crazy.  It was all over the place all over the arena.  Some big spots by Dean and Seth.  The ending was all too predictable.  The Shield did all their spots.  It did look like a sendoff. I just don’t think Dean is leaving.

So overall I will rank this PPV as an A Minus.  Only because I didn’t like the ending of the Flair/Becky match and the Asuka/Mandy match.  But I am glad the women who had three matches plus My Khaleesi Carmella and Zelina maybe building a storyline of their own.  Not to mention Beth Phoenix who might have another match in her.

Wrestling Blog 2-25

The Big Dog returns tonight with a major announcement expected for tomorrow during Good Morning America.  I would be beyond surprised if he is able to wrestle this soon after leaving to battle leukemia.  Maybe he will be the host of Wrestlemania.  To expect him to be on the card as a competitor would be un realistic unless he is in a tag match where he can do a couple of spots.  He did act in his cousin the Rock’s new movie so obviously he is feeling better.

Did someone say the Nature Boy has a birthday party tonight?  Who knows what we will see tonight.  Expect Becky to crash the party.  Maybe even Batista.  With Wrestlemania one more week closer it’s time the card starts to take shape.

Well that should be enough to keep Raw interested tonight.  I am curious to see where they are going with this Dean Ambrose angle.

So RIkishi is saying his sons are leaving once their contract is up in April.  Yeah well I guess this is why they won the straps 3 days after Jon Fatu was arrested for trying to fight a cop while he was drunk in Detroit.

I am anxious to see if the Fab Four from NXT are going to be in action on Raw tonight.  But hopefully  they don’t continue to bury EC3.

So now that we have Women’s tag team champions what is next for the Boss & Hug Connection.  Please don’t have them fight Trish and Lita at Wrestlemania.  The women’s product is so much better right now than the men’s product.  I would love to see 4 female matchas with a Battle Royal match as the 5th one at Wrestlemania.

Glad to see my Princess Carmella is doing better since all the nonsense went public.  I have said it before and will continue to say it every day.  All she did was make a choice based on what Corey Graves told her.  Some people would have decided a different way.  I just hope she stays away from Corey because it is not good for her career or her image to be with him.

I wasn’t digging it before but I am now really hooked on the Divas and Bella’s show on E.  I just love when I see their raw emotions on how they deal with life and other problems.  It’s by watching this show did I get confirmation that Carmella did not try to break up a marriage.  I am still blaming Corey for in my opinion not being completely honest about his situation and also getting his wife to put this out in public after what seemed like 6 private months.

RAW AND SMACKDOWN REVIEWS

 

Let’s see was there anything different about Raw and Smackdown Live this week?  Um I don’t know maybe.  The big story is did Triple H and his father in law Vince McMahon fight over the NXT call ups?  That’s all the buzz.  But since the McMahon family made their speech about change they have introduced 10 new NXT superstars.  The first 6 have made very small implications.  All except for Lars Anderson have actually competed in a match.  Lars has not been seen anywhere in at least a month.  EC3 is not allowed to talk yet.  Lacey Evans just does cat walks.  Tucker and Otis got their names shortened and have cut some pretty funny promos.  Nikki Cross has actually wrestled in some big matches.  Both the ladies were in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.  So why did the WWE bring up 4 of their top stars from NXT to not only compete on both Raw and Smackdown Live but win all their matches.   Tomaso Ciampo, Johnny Gargano, Ricochet and Allestier Black all shined with great matrches.

The Louisiana crowd was not as over as we all would have hoped they would be.  This is even after Triple H giving a scouting report on each and Michael Cole giving more during their video promos.  All 4 are top talents.  But all 4 returned to NXT on Wednesday so was this a one time thing or do we expect these 4 to be mainstays on the main roster?  Well now that Ciampo and Gargano will be re kindling their feud on NXT maybe they will have a NXT Takeover match and come up permanently after Wrestlemania.

But the real problem is not the lack of talent.  It’s the lack of opportunity for all of this talent.  The shows are crowded.  How do you get all this talent enough time to develop into meaningful story lines?  The 4 new guys had 3 matches on Raw and 3 matches on Smackdown Live.  Throw in the useless Braun/Corbin match, another Heyman/Rollins promo(get used to that), Ruby Riott getting another title match and Elias getting interrupted again, Lacey doing a catwalk,  a Dean Ambrose squash match and a funny promo with Seth what was left.  I expected a better promo with the new female tag team champs.  Ryder and Hawkins vs Lucha House Party.  Outside of the new guys debuting and the announcement of DX with Chyna going into the hall of fame(And I will be there) there wasn’t anything else of substance.

Smackdown Live in my opinion is the better show right now.  Even with the whole Charlotte/Becky angle switching to Raw.    There was 5 matches but all were good.  Three of the matches were NXTer’s.  Mandy Rose beats Asuka which could be a set up for a Wrestlemania match.  All 6 participants of the Eimination Chamber match met up in a 6 man tag team match.  Kofi gets the pin and a title shot at Fastlane.  I also thought it was a good idea to not have Carmella on TV while this whole incident starts to die down which it will.  All the matches were good.  But Wrestlemania is fast approaching and we don’t have clear direction on most of the card.  This is something insiders say is very rare this close to Wrestlemania.

On a personal note I am glad to see that Roman Reigns is coming to Raw on Monday to update us on his recovery.  I was a never a big fan of his.  That’s because of the ridiculous push and attempts to jam him down our throats for 3 years.  This has nothing to do with that right now.  I do respect him and I cheer for his recovery and his efforts and bravery facing a disease that just seems to not go away.  Roman will be a true face for life for the kind of person he is.

I also am glad the Carmella/Corey Graves issue is behind us.  I don’t know what is going on at the house shows.  But if she is on live TV this week we will see what kind of crowd reaction she gets.  I don’t want to talk about this anymore cause it’s in my eyes a non -issue.  I just hope Carmella has distanced herself from him as this could be a career killer for her.  The last thing you want is people to see them together and keep getting reminders of what happened.

I have not been a fan of the Total Divas TV Show.  I don’t really have a good reason to not either.  In fact I only binge watched the last 2 seasons because I can’t get enough my princess Carmella.  Watching Big Cass get hurt reminds me that my brother took his MRI in Brooklyn because his boss and owner of the place is a good friend of Shane McMahon and he wanted it to be done quietly.  Carmella is amazing and watching that show I firmly believe that Corey Graves lied to her about how far along his divorce is.

Buy anyway.  I know parts of the show are scripted.  But the emotion are not.  I only saw seasons 7 and 8.  It got me hooked on wanting to watch the 9th season.  It got me to want to watch Total Bellas.  Aside from how beautiful the Bella Twins are.  I was not fans of them in the ring.  It’s not that they are bad wrestlers.  Nikki is certainly not.  It’s just that the women coming up from NXT are better.  They carried that banner for a while.  I have such a new found respect for the Bella Twins now.  They have really become the mentors or the den mothers for a lot of the women in the locker room.  Just to see how they are dealing with all the emotions of the other female wrestlers.  Brie and Daniel Bryan are so good together.  I really feel for Nikki after the breakup with John Cena.  I do applaud her and him for recognizing they wanted different things and calling off the marriage.  Cena is a weird dude.  It’s almost like he is robotic in his real life.  Kudos Nikki.  You deserve to get what you want and you will.  Separation and divorce is really hard.  It takes a while to get over and you need a lot of support.  But poor Nikki.  I feel for her.  But she is so beautiful and driven I know she will come out of this fine.  Brie.  Sweet Brie you will forever be golden for what you did for Daniel Bryan.

Additionaly major kudos to Nia Jax.  She just told the trust about her body and how hard it is for her to find someone let alone date.  For someone who plays a bully on screen she is a really sweet person.  Nia you have a pretty face.  I want you to be confident in everything you do out of the ring.  My Princess of Staten Island Carmella from Massachusetts.  I am from Brooklyn so I definitely understand that kind of woman and I love it.  Sweet and tough and driven.  Not to mention so very beautiful.  I would be your prince forever.  Lana.  There is a lot going on there.  Beautiful woman.  Very focused.  Maybe a bit too ambitious to be liked and get better in the ring.  But I think a complete open book.  Nattie is like the who is the person I am looking to describe her.  She has won titles before.  She is the steady old school woman who is very conservative but she really does not want to be.  Naomi is so down to earth.  I hope she has resolved her issues with Jon.  You really have to feel for Paige.  Great career even though it was cut short.  To have to deal with the other issues she has had as well as the injury is really not fair.  But she has pushed through.

Society Gone Bad

So unfortunately I am back here one more time writing about the Leah/Matt/Amy story.  I am not going to call it a scandal because as the days and weeks go by and more details come out we will see that this is another situation where this society jumps to conclusions and wants to dwell on it.  Everyone loves a scandal.  With social media so easily available where you can pretty much bash any celebrity you want without any real consequences (I myself am guilty of this) when will this society ever learn their lesson.

How many people jumped to conclusions about Leah and called her a whore or a slut or a homewrecker because of the rants of one woman.  Matt got his share too.  But his role in this is much more different.  He is in the center of this and he caused this to happen by his actions or lack of actions.  Then there is Amy who everyone calls a victim.  She definitely is a victim.  But she also is a villain when she aired this out all over the internet for her children to see forever.  The children are the real victims here.

I don’t know any of the 3 people in this story personally.  I never met them and neither have 95 percent of the people making posts.  So when I say I support Leah and stand by her I am just going by what I believe and just looking at the situation and judging the reactions.  But the reality is this should have been none of our business.  This should have stayed private forever.  But once Amy opened the can of worms we as the public want to know the real story.  But we shouldn’t.  It’s really not our business.

Clearly Leah and Matt have been together.  If they weren’t Leah would have made a statement once this story came out.  And if it really wasn’t true then that would have been so unfortunate as some people would not have believed her.  With that do I think Leah knowing Matt was married started to mess around with him to try to break up his marriage or just not care about his marriage?  Absolutely not.  By looking at the pictures of her face from Sunday night’s PPV you can clearly tell she was upset and did a good amount of crying.  If she didn’t care about Matt’s marriage then there was no reason to be upset.  She was called a lot of things but a home wrecker would have been an accurate way to describe it.

I am going to touch on Matt a lot here now.  Much more than I have in previous posts.  Only Matt and Amy know the dynamics of their marriage.  When did the marriage start going bad?  What was the cause?  Amy aired a lot about Matt personally.  Is it true?  I don’t know.  If those texts were real then Matt does seem un stable and he probably should not be involved with any woman right now.

But Matt I feel you.  I really do.  I can relate to him in a few ways.  As a man who was separated from my wife for 2 and a half years before I could get this done legally I know the feeling.  In that situation from my experience you want closure fast.  You want to know papers get signed quickly.  You want it for many reasons.  But one of them is to move on to someone else.  Now I made it a point to just tell the truth to any woman I was interested in dating.  Hey I am trying to get a divorce.  My estranged wife won’t sign divorce papers.  I haven’t seen her since 3 months after we separated and now it’s 2 years later and nothing.  We haven’t had any contact by text or email in over a year.  But I am trying to get it legal and believe me there is no chance of getting together.  I am hoping Matt said this to Leah.  I am really hoping this was also the truth.

Sources close to Matt released a statement on Monday.  I do have questions about this statement.  Firstly I need to know it comes from Matt.  And maybe his lawyer is saying don’t talk publicly about this.  Secondly there is no chance in hell that his divorce is close to being final a mere 6 months after starting the process.  Anyone who went through a divorce knows it is just not that simple.  They have 3 kids together.  I am sure joint bank accounts.  Definitely a house and other properties.  Plus Matt is a public figure who makes good money I assume.  You don’t just throw stuff at the wall during a divorce.  It does take time.

So do I think Matt might have embellished his divorce status to Leah.  Definitely.  Now let’s talk about Amy’s rant and why did it come out now.  I have been thinking about this.  This woman has been quiet for 6 months about the divorce.  At least publicly.  Trashing Matt in public would only accomplish him to potentially make less money which becomes less money for her.  So why did she come out now?  Matt did say he was seeing someone else and it started after he moved out of their house.  Something does not sound right here.  I am kind of believing that Amy felt they could maybe work things out and that some space between the two would be helpful.  How much space did they need? Matt is probably on the road half the week every week.  It’s also possible that Amy thought all along Matt was cheating on him and when he mentioned seeing someone new she blew up.  None of us were flies on the wall during their marriage.  We have no idea how bad the marriage got if it even got there.

It’s amazing some people believe Amy’s posts from Saturday.  Then Matt’s post was 100 percent believed by Leah supporters.  Like my father always says there are 3 sides to any story.  Yours, mine and the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Now here is a question I wrote in various posts since Saturday.  It’s an interesting question that has no wrong answer.  It’s a question all about that person’s perspective.  When I was separated from my wife I asked 10 of my female friends would you date a guy who was separated but not yet legally divorced.  8 out of 10 said no.  They want to know the divorce is legally over before dating that guy.  Leah clearly is in the 2 out of 10 people with this question.  Do I think Leah is wrong or made a mistake by doing this?  No she is not wrong but she did make a mistake.  It would have served her better to wait until Matt’s divorce was final.  I guarantee she is thinking that right now.  Is she asking herself was it really worth it.  Leah’s character has taken a hit.  Those who bashed her will never make it right with her.  Time will tell if this hurts her career.  It was probably a good thing she was not on Smackdown Live last night.  WWE needs to let this die down.

And Matt dude.  You know Amy pretty well.  How could you say things to her to stir her up.  Clearly as someone who was married to her you know how her mind works.  When you said you were dating someone else you had to know she would react.  I am sure there was much more going on that day in that text conversation.  But it’s the way Matt has acted during this.  His comments on Saturday when he said “I am golden” made me sick.  You got 3 kids and there was no consideration for them in any of the texts.  I just have a hard time believing that after 6 months Amy finally blew a gasket.  None of us know how the previous months were going between Matt and Amy.

When I first separated from my wife I was out all the time partying etc.  I never hooked up with any women but would have not said no if it came up.  I have no kids. A good friend of mine got separated from his wife shortly after.  He has 4 kids with his wife.  He was doing the same thing I was and I felt the need to talk to him.  I told him he needed to chill out.  I wanted him to learn from my experiences.  He did calm down.  The new freedom you get after being with someone for as long as Matt was can be hard to deal with.  Understand Amy was raising the kids and Matt well who knows how much of a role he had in that.  Hopefully he is still a big part of their lives.

I just want to be clear here.  I am a 100 percent Leah backer.  I really believe she got mixed up in this.  I still believe Matt was not totally honest with her.  Leah backers keep saying they were separated for 6 months.  Well we can’t pick and choose what side of the story we want to believe based on who we want to stand behind.  Who is Matt’s source?  Why should we believe his source more than Amy?  No one knows anything about their marriage or what either one of them had going through their minds.  And I am not saying I do either.  Good people find themselves in bad situations all the time.  Leah is only guilty in my eyes of making a choice to believe that Matt said his marriage was over.  Clearly there are issues still brewing with Matt and Amy.  Matt should have waited more before getting into a relationship with anybody.  Going through a divorce is very emotional.  He has kids too.  They should be priority number one.

I remember a story about August Ames from a little over a year ago.  August was a female adult entertainment star.  She had made a choice to not work with a male actor who worked in straight and gay porn.  She was called homophobic.  She was bullied all over the internet.  August just made a choice a very personal choice to not work with a man who does crossovers.  August took her own life amid all the bullying she was getting online.

Society will never learn their lesson.  As one of my good friends used to say.  I hate when people like to be an internet tough guy.  It’s so true.  How many people would be making these same comments to Leah and Matt to while looking them in the eye?  We all need to remember the story of August Ames and I am sure there are others too.

Elimination Chamber Recap and More

The Elimination Chamber just ended.  Overall I will give it a C rating.  I went 3-3 in my predictions but still a very predictable PPV.

Women’s Elimination Chamber Match.  As I had stated in my preview I thought any team could win.  I picked Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan.  I was wrong.  I knew this match would be first and it was.  And who was the first one to open the show Carmella.  I have some new thoughts about the scandal which I will get into later.  But I was expecting a lot of boos.  So I was surprised it was not that bad.  Maybe it was placed perfectly to have her open the show.  However when Fabulous Glow finally got into the match I did hear a little booing.  And there was a chant that I could not make out what it was.  Overall it was the worst showing of any team in this match as they were the 5th team to enter the match and the first to be eliminated with Naomi doing the honors.  I was thinking that Vince is going to get them both out right away as penalty for their incidents this past week.  More on that later.  Again this match stole the show as the ladies always do.  I do believe this is the first time there has been a 6 team tag match inside the chamber and it really played well. Great spots all over this match and Sasha carrying her team to victory to be the first ever female tag team champs.  There was booing right after the match for the in ring interview but it quickly died down.  Not sure why they were booing.  Sonia and Mandy came out looking strong.  As did Nia and Tamina as it took 4 ladies to pin Tamina while Jax knocked herself out going through one of the pods.  I didn’t pick the Boss and Hug connection to win but I am not surprised they won.  The Horsemen have the gold and we are going to see that angle start to get formed in the next couple of months.  Match overall was an A

Mc Miz vs the Uso’s.  I am surprised the Uso’s took the straps because of the arrest this past week of one of the Uso’s.  But we know Shane and Miz are heading for a Mania one on one match.  What Shane lacks in ring ability he makes up for it by being absolutely fearless with his spots.  The match wasn’t very good and the ending now makes me see how this starts to turn.  The lackadaisical way Miz pinned one of the Uso’s is going to spark the breakup.  So perhaps this was the plan all along to have them lose this match and no matter who got arrested it wasn’t going to change the outcome.  Congrats to Miz and Maryse on her pregnancy.  Match Rating is a C.

Next we have Finn Balor vs Lio Rush and Lashley.  I finally picked one match right with Finn winning the strap tonight.  The match wasn’t very good and I found it interesting that Lashley turned on Rush after the match.  Is Rush gone now?  I kind of like the Hype Man.  Match rating is a C.

Next up is Ronda Rousey vs Ruby RIott.  This was a squash match.  They buried Ruby RIott big time.  Based on what happened after the match they would have been better off putting a different match in its place and just had an interview with Ronda and Charlotte which Becky would crash.  I mean the PPV ended surprisingly early.  Ron Ron and Charlotte just stared at each other while a supposedly suspended Becky on crutches just waltzes down through the crowd and into the ring and attacked Charlotte with one of her crutches.  If you are not keeping count out there this is the second time a woman on one leg beats down the Queen.  Then Ronda grabs a crutch and Becky wants her to get payback on Charlotte from the beat down she got a Survivor Series with the Kendo stick.  DTA Ronnie.  Becky attacks Ronda with the other crutch channeling her inner Stone Cold with the motto Don’t Trust Anyone.  Becky is super over and they are setting this match up well for Mania. But there is so much time from now til then that I am praying they don’t over do it.  This is the best angle the WWE has had in quite some time even though they are completely trying to re create Stone Cold with Becky.  I am getting a bit tired of it because you should never try to re create greatness and Austin was immortal in that role.  The post match activities pushed it from a F to a B.

Next we have Braun vs Corbin.  We knew there would be a run in.  We knew it would be Drew.  But Lashley also came out and made it a 3 on 1.  Corbin wins with the help of his buddies.  I am completely over this story.  It just flat out sucks.  Stroman is lost as a character now.  I don’t know where this is going.  Probably Drew vs Braun at Mania.  But no help for Braun.  No Kurt Angle.  No Lars Anderson.  Not even a Super Cena run in.  UGH just terrible.  Match grade is an F.

The Men’s Elimination Chamber Match.  I didn’t expect much and that is exactly what I got.  Figured Bryan would retain the titles and he did.  I must admit they are pushing Kofi big time.  But for what?  The way it came across on TV was that they were super into Kofi.  And I must admit I thought he was going to win at one point and I was definitely pulling for him.  The show ended so early that I found myself looking for something to happen after the match.  His New Day buddies coming down to greet him was nice.  There is no reason why this faction can’t have more singles matches.  I don’t understand why they don’t do that more.  Aside from that nothing else was good about this match.  Once again no push for Samoa Joe.  No run ins.  I will give this match a C.

 

Now for the post I wanted to write over the weekend but I wanted to cover the scandal.

I do want to mention this scandal a bit more.  Fan reaction was better than I thought it was.  Carmella finally started posting again on Instagram after her match.  I have a google phone which tracks the topics I like to read online on my phone and I got something about Corey Graves posting texts from someone at Total Divas I think.  He was talking about his ex wife and how he is going to be on the show next season.  The article says they plan to make this scandal a big part of the show.  Stop right there.  The bell went off in my head and I am starting to think this could be a work.  Or partly a work.  Is Corey Graves after what happened yesterday that stupid to post more stuff about his wife online.  Really?  I for one would be very upset if WWE allows this to be exploited if it is true.  How does Amy get all these texts with Corey and someone else?  Now she shut down her Instagram account which is probably a good thing.  I thought things were calming down since she was posting about her son yesterday.  Also which is completely unfair to Carmella that now people are saying she was sleeping with a lot of the males on the roster.  But the double standard the WWE continues to show regarding this type of behavior is very degrading to women.  Nothing happened to Bray Wyatt when he cheated on his wife with JoJo.  Cena always got pushed despite cheating on his wife.  I am sure there are others.  But this did affect Carmella last night.  You can see it in her eyes.  She was upset and probably did a good amount of crying.  I am starting to think she might have actually had feelings for Graves and he lied to her about his marriage.  This did not seem to affect him at all.  When Naomi got pinned last night and they showed Carmella and Naomi leave the cage together with their arms around each other after a very poor showing in the match I almost felt as they took the bullets for the incidents.  They were probably never scheduled to win the match but maybe they were supposed to have a better showing.  I felt like they were relieved a bit that they got through the night and are hoping for a this to go away.  Naomi will be fine as I think most feel that Jon was drunk and she was trying to take care of him.  But the first time Carmella comes out on Smackdown it will be interesting to see what reaction she gets.  My guess is she won’t get TV time this week.

Ok I am all scandaled out.

People need to calm down about the Undertaker.  He will never be a part of another promotion.  That is a guarantee.  He can barely wrestle now.  But if you were Mark Caloway and you know the character you built and perfected into what is without a doubt the best gimmick ever created in wrestling history you would start booking yourself and not sharing profits with the WWE.  My god he is charging 25 grand an hour.  Just think about that.  If he worked a weekend event and worked 3 hours a day he is making 150,000.   Just unreal.  You know Vince gave his blessing.  No one is going to have an issue with the Deadman.

You have to admit it.  Selling out your first show in 4 minutes with only a few matches announced is pretty impressive.  AEW is going to try to be the new WCW.  They are going to load up on top talent.  From what has been rumored the contracts are very lucrative.  The schedule will be more manageable for the talent.  They are backed by a billionaire.  The talent is getting more of a cut of their merchandise sales than the WWE gives their talent.  It has been rumored the contracts are very lucrative.  The schedule will be more manageable for the talent.  They are backed by a billionaire.  The talent is getting more of a cut of their merchandise sales than the WWE gives their talent.  But I do have a couple of questions.

  1. Will there be a TV contract and weekly shows like Raw and Smackdown
  2. Will it be just house shows and will they be televised if they get a TV contract.

Let’s not forget one thing here.  It’s nice to be the shiny new toy that everyone wants to play with.  The Khans have money we all know that.  But this company needs to make money to stay in business.  No billionaire will continue to dump money into a product that does not pull a profit.

Before we get into the awful products on Raw and Smackdown I want to again put my take on this triple threat match at Mania with Ronda/Charlotte and ultimately Becky.

This was the plan all along.  WWE wanted to build this women’s revolution and have the first women’s match to close out Wrestlemania in history.  This is why Ronda is here.  She has done everything they could ever hope for and much more.  Charlotte was always going to be in this match.  She has natural ability and charisma.  She is a great heel and great on the mic as we have seen so far and will continue to see in the coming weeks.  After all she is a Flair.  Becky is just a bolt of lightning that hit and caught fire.  No one knew she was capable of this.  Same can be said of Stone Cold Steve Austin who she is being compared to.  I really hate that she is compared to Austin.  There is only one Austin and his feud with Vince was pure magic.  So it makes tons of sense to have a triple threat match.  So many story lines can be spinned off from this match.  Here are my reasons in no particular order:

  1. Ronda is a top attraction world-wide. Becky is white hot right now.  Charlotte when she is done will be recognized as the greatest female wrestler of all time.
  2. WWE won’t make Ronda a heel which she should be. There is nothing they can do to make Becky a heel.  Charlotte is a natural heel.  Main event matches don’t work with a face vs a face.
  3. I am not convinced they know who they want to win this match yet. They can keep Ronda’s invincibility by having Becky and Charlotte pin each other.
  4. By having these three in this match it opens up a spot for another woman to wrestle Asuka at Mania.

Does this make sense to you?  The 4 horsemen angle is coming and it could very well officially begin at Mania.  Look at the scenarios.  Becky and Charlotte gang up on Ronda to help one win.  Ronda’s squad beats up both Becky and Flair so she could retain forming the Horseman.  Sasha and Bailey getting involved if Ronda wins and all 4 beat her down.  Or possibly the old double pin on Ronda by Becky and Charlotte setting up yet another match between them.  Or perhaps Ronda’s squad takes out Sasha and Bailey costing them their tag titles and then take out Charlotte and Becky.  Something big is going to happen.  But mostly I want to see another woman in a big match against Asuka.  The women’s matches are getting better and better.

 

RAW

My god what the hell is going on here.  We have Seth Rollins not wrestling since the Rumble and barely on TV.  And when he goes on TV here comes the advocate for Brock Lesnar.  Heyman is golden on the mic so that does not bother me.  But this title has become so secondary cause it never gets defended.  I also think that Vince is so scared of losing Brock to AEW that he might not drop the strap at Mania and he will pay him even more money to stay.  UGH.  How many more weeks will we be forced to see Mojo Rawley stare at himself in the mirror.  Please Stroman, Drew, Corbin story has to go.  And now Lashley might be back into it too.  Kurt Angle is also still around in main events.  We were forced to see Double J and the Road Dog get TV time against Elias.  Now Elias who is still a hot story last week was in a spot with the Lucha House Party?  Curt Hawkins and Long Island Iced Z?  Ronda abusing and making the Riott Squad look obsolete.    Do we need to see videos of Kevin Owens throwing gutter balls and eating pizza with pineapples.  But at least he is coming back and maybe as a face cause we need him back.  Dean Ambrose who already gave his notice is still getting prime TV time.  The men’s tag team division is a joke.  At least a real tag team now has the straps.  Can we let EC3 talk?  He is great on the mic.  Thank god for the women on this show.  Sasha and Bailey as the tag team champs will get this going in the right direction.  Outside of Ronda and with Charlotte and Becky appearing on both shows now there is enough quality women to have a pretty competitive tag team division.  That is if Sasha and Bailey don’t cross shows.  Bottom line with over 2 hours of TV time to fill there isn’t any juicy angles right now.  I never thought I would admit it but they need the Big Dog back.  Get well soon Roman.  Also a healthy KO.  Cena’s eventual return?  Maybe Bray Wyatt too?  And what the hell happened with Lars Anderson?

SMACKDOWN

This is a better show because the Becky Lynch angle came from Smackdown.  The Kofi Kingston push came out of nowhere and it is lit right now.  I am interested in seeing where this is going.  The rest of the show is very average.  I don’t think Samoa Joe is getting pushed the right way.  AJ is awesome but he needs a fresh story.  Abyss?  Shane and Miz are getting ready to have the breakup for their Mania match.  How does Asuka make The Man tap out and we never see her on TV since the Royal Rumble.  She needs a Mania opponent and the roster on Smackdown is light on the female side.  I don’t know what to make of R Truth having a strap.  Unless they felt bad scrapping him from the rumble for Nia Jax.  Send Nikki Cross to Smackdown.  Stop pushing Orton, Hardy and Rey.  I do like Andrade and let’s get him into a push maybe with Nakamura and Rusev who are both underused.  I really think we need a roster shake up and more NXT call ups.

Wrestlemania.  First the announced matches already.  Then what I would like to see.

Ronda vs Charlotte vs Becky.

Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins

The above are the only two matches officially announced aside from Becky which we know she will be there.  I am assuming we are still having the Men’s and Women’s Battle Royal matches.

Now for what I would like to see or think we will see.

WWE Championship Match Daniel Bryan vs Kofi Kingston.  Assuming Bryan still has the belt it appears Kofi is getting a singles push.  The fans are completely behind this right now.  But Mania is 7 weeks away.  A lot can happen before then.  Kofi does deserve this push so if he is going to get the strap then I would love to see him win it at Mania.  The fans are going to be calling for him to get a shot before then.  So how this gets booked will be interesting.  Outside of Kofi I don’t see another story line or wrestler right now that is more deserving.

Shane McMahon vs the Miz.  This really should be in the announced part because we all know it’s going to happen.  I only hope Miz is the heel because he is so good on the mic as a heel.

Smack Down Women’s Championship.  Asuka vs???  I have been thinking about this for a couple of days now.  Maybe Naomi because they seemed to have each other’s backs for a while now.  And Naomi was a champion before.  I will leave Carmella in the mix because this scandal with Corey Graves might be something WWE looks to exploit.  I am not behind the scenes so I don’t know the whole story but I felt Carmella was hugely affected by it.  Or perhaps it’s time to get another woman pushed.  Mandy Rose?  Or does someone leave Raw and show up on Smackdown.  I am going to say Mandy Rose gets the chance but will keep my options open to see how the fans react to Carmella.  I mean let’s face it.  The WWE did have a story with Mandy trying to have an affair with Naomi’s husband.  KARMA.

Smackdown Tag Team Champs the Uso’s.  I was kind of surprised they won the belts last night.  That’s only because of the arrest of Jon on Thursday.  His wife Naomi took that bullet for him last night.  But we know McMiz had to lose to start setting up their Mania match.  So maybe the Uso’s lose the belts quickly as punishment to a team I don’t know like the New Day.  Big E and Xavier will need something to do while Kofi gets his singles push.  Makes sense.  New Day are crowd favorites.  So I am thinking the Mania match could be the New Day vs a team like Sanity or maybe Harper is back by then and teams with Rowan since they technically weren’t supposed to drop the straps so soon.  And Bryan’s stable grows.

United States Champion R Truth.  I would be beyond shocked if he still has the belt by Mania.  So this is a tough one.  Going out on a limb and saying that Andrade beats R Truth and faces Mustafa Ali at Mania.  Nakamura and Rusev are too good to be mid carders.

United States Champion Finn Balor.  He will still be the champion by Mania and he deserves to be.  There is only one match I want to see with him.  EC3 vs Balor at Mania.  And please put a mic in the hands of EC3.

Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival.  Another tough one.  Maybe the Revival just goes into the men’s battle royal match.  I don’t see a team I like for this spot.  It also could be on the kickoff show too.

Women’s Tag Team Champions Sashs and Bailey.  They will still be the champs at Mania.  I could see the RIott squad or Nia/Tamina facing them.  I also feel they are going to start to set up the Horsemen angle with run ins by Ronda’s group.

AJ Styles vs Abyss.  An oldie from TNA.

So I got 12 matches down already with lots of talent left.  That’s why there are the battle royal matches.  The one thing I desparately want to see is Elias have a sing off with the Rock.  That would be pretty entertaining.  I have all the titles getting defended except for one.  Also you can bet there will be a couple of matches with no titles involved on the main card.  Plus I know this will never happen but I would want to see one a 4th female match on this card.  It would not involve a female champion.  But that is wishful thinking

So how do you like the card?
