WWE Backlash and NXT Takeover Chicago Results!

Happy Monday Novas! I hope that your week is starting off well! This past weekend we had 2 WWE Payperviews which were NXT Takeover Chicago on Saturday and WWE Backlash on Sunday. The weekends was awesome for WWE game so let’s get straight into the results!

NXT Takeover Chicago:

The first match was between Roderick Strong and the leader of SaNity, Eric Young. This rivalry started brewing after Tye Dillengers feud with SaNity concluded. Dillengers is now on the main roster of Smackdown. Results: Roderick Strong !

United Kingdom Championship match– Finally we get to see some more UK action with probably the best match of the weekend (I’m my opinion). This match pitted the champ Tyler Hate against rude, crude and lude Pete Dunne. After an explosive match leaving the All state Arena chanting “UK,” we have a new champion. Results: Pete Dunne is the UK Champion! 015_NXT_05202017ej_0689--23ec72a85c55459e0721ca9586f09152

Triple Threat for NXT Women’s Title: The triple threat match was between champion Asuka, Ruby Riot and SaNity member Nikki Cross. This match was set up by William Reagal after Asuka interfered in the number 1 contender battle royale. Ruby Riot and Nikka Cross remained (although I those Ember Moon was left too). Asuka came in and interuppted the match taking out the remaining women. This match was pretty good but I wasn’t a fan of the ending result. Results: Yep, Asuka is still champion 😞.  025_NXT_05202017ej_1143--2034bb74655a9729cee30a73cf581d94

The first main event match was between Bobby Roode and Hideo Itami for the NXT Championship. Roode, the champion was kicked in the face by the challenger Itami weeks ago. With the title on the line this match was awesomeee. Roode delivered the glorious ddt but Itami got up. Itami delivered the Go To Sleep, in Chicago so you know the CM Punk chants rained in the arena, but Roode got up. Results: Bobby Roode got 2 consecutive glorious ddts to retain his title!  034_NXT_05202017ej_1690--4eddf93294461ad37f984f77b3935a0d

Tag Team Championship Ladder Match: after a stunning event so far, the main event was a tag team ladder match for the championship. Defending champions Authors of Pain took on fan favorites FIT. The battle was messy and awesome with entry of close calls. Results: AOP retain their titles. But wait there’s more… Ciampa turns on his partner Gargano after the match and destroys DIY. 😢

Takeover was great but now let’s get to Sunday night’s Backlash! This was the Smackdown Live exclusive event and the first Smackdown special after Wrestlemania.

WWE Backlash Results

The first match was the official debut match of Shinsuke Nakamura facing The Showoff Dolph Ziggler. The heel turn for Ziggler has been one of the highlights of the WWE this year. On Nakamuras first night Ziggler interrupted saying that he has no idea why the WWE Universe chants for someone who hasn’t had a match (other than the dark matches not aired). He sought to show Nakamura for what he was, a fraud! Results: Nakamura wins!

US Championship- The United States Championship title match was between champ Kevin Owens and challenger AJ Styles. This feud began with the Super Star Shakeup that brought KO to The House That AJ Styles built, Smackdown Live. KO, aka the new face of America was making his demands when the phenomenal one reminded him whose show he was on. Results: KO retains his title by count out… AJ stuck on a table 😂😂😂. AJSTuck.1495418873.png

The next match was a feud between Corbin and Zayn. I like Sami Zayn but his direction right now with chammenibg the biggest Superstars,  like Braun Strowman, is getting a little old and played out. Same premise as before, the underdog from the underground trying to show his heart is bigger than their muscles. Results: Zayn hits an incredible Huluva Kick

Women’s 6 tag match- The welcoming committee of Natalya, Tamima and Carmella with Ellsworth did not take Charlottes entrance on smackdown Live smoothly. They decided to teach her a lesson by interfering I’m her matches. This put champ Naomi and Becky Lynch temporarily on Charlottes side. The women fought it out. Results: The welcoming committee wins with Becky tapping to Natties Family Sharpshooter.

Tag Team Championship match- The Usos and defending champs took on Breezango or the Fashion Police for the titles. The Fashion Police has been doing skits and making fun of the Usos culminating to this match. Tyler Breeze even started the match as a janitor which has the crowd chanting for his mop and eventually Grandma as he changed mid match.      Results: The Usos retain and The Fashion police are shamed.

Rowan vs Harper- not gonna lie this was my bathroom break. I really didn’t care about this match so I didn’t watch. Results: Harper won.

WWE Title Match- The main event was between champ Randy Orton and the new Maharaja Jinder Mahal. After weeks of battling the 2 met for a shocking match. Results: New champion Jinder Mahal left the arena and WWE Universe with their jaws dropped 😂😂😂. 

 

All in all it was a great weekend for wrestling fans. I was pretty happy with everything. What were your favorite moments? Did anything surprise you? Let’s talk WWE!

Happy Sunday & WWE Backlash!

Happy Sunday Novas! I apologize for the stop of posts last week. I ended up getting sick on Tuesday and have been in bed binge watching The White Princess and The White Queen on Starz (reviews will be coming on these shows as they’re absolutely amazing). Now I find myself out of town and completely spaced on creating my WWE Backlash predictions post. We are about to head to the beach so quick predictions are inbound with no explanation lol.

AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens- Aj Styles

Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal – I want to say Orton but I have a feeling it will be Mahal.

Nakamura vs Dolph Ziggler – Nakamura

Usos vs Breezango – Usos

Sami Zayn vs Baron Corbin- Corbin

Harper vs Rowan- Harper

Six Women tag match- Naomi, Becky Lynch and Charlotte (Charlotte will probably flip).

Tye Dillenger vs Aiden English will be on the preshow. I’m hoping for a perfect 10 there!

These are my quick predictions for tonight’s event. I will have a full recap of the event tomorrow. What are your plans for today? Do you agree with my picks? Let’s talk WWE Backlash!

I just know both shows have little monsters and they are cute haha. Plus they all battle.

So, tell me which show did you like best Pokemon or Digimon?

Ultimate TKO Tuesday: Poison Ivy Vs Swamp Thing!

Happy Tuesday Novas! After a long hiatus with the TKO battle series, I’m brining it back for Tuesdays! The inaugural Tuesday match will begin with Poison Ivy Vs Swamp thing! For anyone new to this series, in TKO battle matches I pair 2 characters (most of the time from different realms or universes) and create a fan fiction battle how I would imagine it. If you like this series, feel free to request characters that you want to see battle it out!

Swamp Thing is tired of the DC Universe! He’s heard about the Dark Knight trying to “Clean” up Gotham. 598dec4f164b69e847b5e9c804c311e4  While his intentions are noble, now he has to worry about a certain “Penguin” and Ice Man murking up his swamp waters. The new “tenants” arrived about a month ago with their schemes and even dared to freeze some of the foliage in their area to create a decadent ice facility. “I will not let anymore of this eco system die off.” swamp thing broods. “Something has to be done and the Dark Knight must be held responsible.”

“Ya know, Gotham’s been a little quiet lately, huh?” Harley says. She walks around the house running her finger tips across the counter.  harley  “Yea… a little too quiet if you ask me.” Ivy responds. She walks through the darkness as if she was modeling for Home & Garden. “Where is Batman anyway?” Ivy asks. Harley screams “Doll, Look!” Ivy runs over to the TV. The Breaking News… Batman has been abducted by a strange green monster. “Well we’ve lucked out.” Harley says laying across the sofa chair with her head over the arm rest. Ivy’s gaze is hardened at the screen. “Guess we don’t have to worry about the Bat anymore. He’s gone and got himself kidnapped.” Harley continues. The room is eerily quiet. “Doll?” Harley asks. She falls onto the floor and looks around. “Doll? Ivy? … Now where did she go?” A trail of flower petals leads out the mansion.

“You have destroyed my home and now I will destroy you!” Swamp Thing says to an unconscious Batman. As he goes to turn on the poisonous gas, a poisoned rose needle pins his hand to the wall. “Tisk, Tisk babe… don’t you know not to touch what doesn’t belong to you?” Ivy says as she walks into the room. Her long, flowing red locks cascade down her back. “Ivy…” Swamp Thing acknowledges. “What are you doing here?” he says. “You have something of mines and I’ve come to collect it.” Ivy’s gaze catches the Bat’s limp body. “I trust, he isn’t dead.” she snarks. Ivy uses the vines in Swamp Thing’s home to start unlocking the container Batman is held in. “He has upset the balance of my swamp! Banishing these villains here to destroy our eco system. You of all people should understand why I have to do what I have to do.” Swamp Thing says. Ivy smirks and nods her head. “Oh I understand and if it was anyone else I’d leave you be…. but as I said you have something that belongs to me and I’ve come to collect him.” Ivy snaps her fingers and the vines wrap up Swamp Thing. “This’ll only take a sec.” she says winking and walking past him. “You can’t have him!”

Swamp thing enrages and breaks through the constricted vines. He launches a devastating punch at Ivy sending her flying across the room.

Ivy rubs her head. “Ouch, is this the fight you really want?” she says brushing herself off. “Ye…” before Swamp Thing can finish his sentence another vine is smacking him in the face. Swamp Thing turns on the poisonous gas. “Ummm 2 things… I’m immune and you’re crazy.” Ivy laughs. Swamp Thing smiles at the plant Goddess. “The Gas isn’t for you.” Ivy’s eyes are ghost as she realizes Thing’s intention. She jumps to grab Batman but is quickly tossed to the side of the room by Swamp Thing. “Stop!” she screams. “hahahaha” a hoggish voice laughs through the green gas filling up the room. “What is this?” Ivy asks, staring at Swamp Thing. She can tell by the befuddled look that it wasn’t his call. “Allow me to introduce myself… I’m Hoggish Greedly and I have a proposition for you.”   1761523-hoggish01  The silhouette of a giant pig emerges with The Penguin and Mr. Freeze behind him.

“What’s going on?” Thing says. “Don’t you get it?” Ivy responds rising to her feet with tears in her eyes. “This was a set up from the beginning.” she says. Swamp Thing nods. “Since you 2 have embraced your dark side, some of us for a second tie huh Ivy? I think that we should become partners.” Greedly continues. “I refuse.” Swamp Thing says and turns off the gas. “Me as well.” Ivy chimes in. “Oh well it wasn’t a request!” Greedly continues and signals to Mr. Freeze. “No!” Ivy screams and uses her vines to push Swamp Thing out of the way of Mr. Freezes’ Ice Beam. She succeeds but is soon frozen herself. The lack on sunlight has weakened her. “Let her go.” Swamp Thing yells throwing toxic punches at his enemies. To no avail he is frozen after the brawl. The startled face of Poison Ivy and the defeated look of Swamp Thing is loaded unto a flatbed and carried out of the room. “I have big plans for you 2, big plans.” Greedly says. As they leave the room an unconscious Batman balls up his fist.

Video Game Tag

I love to see that people are actually participating in the Video Game Tag that we created a few months ago! I’ll definitely reblog and shot out the Gamers who have decided to play (P.S. we’re making a new one soon 🙂 ). Check it out!

Otaku Outcasts

I gotta thank my mansMattfor tagging me for the video game tag. It’s a rarity that I talk about my own interest outside of news, reviews and the like. So you’ll get the chance to know a little bit about me.

Rules:

  • Thank & Tag the Blogger
  • Answer the Questions
  • Tag Other Bloggers

What is your favorite video game genre (I.E. RPG, FPS, MMO, etc.)?

Which system do you prefer to game on?

Who is your favorite video game character?

Which game do you believe has the best plot?

Honestly I think the Mass Effect Franchise had the best plot in gaming. I say that because the player had the ability to alter the plot to an extent with their decision making.

What game gave the most hype but didn’t deliver?

The Divisioneasily didn’t live up to the hype. That game had the most bootleg damage model…

April Lootcrate Unboxing

Happy Saturday Novas! I hope your month of May is going well and don’t forget about Mother’s Day observance tomorrow! Today I will go over my May Lootcrate Unboxing with the theme of Investigate! Last week I did the WWE Slamcrate (Masters of the Mic) unboxing and you can view the post here! Let’s get into it!

Stranger Things T-Shirt:  20170512_070621  Each Lootcrate as you know by now will always include and exclusive shirt. This month’s crate included a Stranger Things T- Shirt. I have yet to watch the series and the shirt looks cool but I gave it to my brother lol.

Gotham Color Changing Mug:   20170511_045231   There was a cool Gotham Color Changing Mug included in this month’s crate. I’m not really a Batman fan and I thought that my brother would appreciate it more. Another gift to Kenny! This month’s crate may not be my favorite but my brother is making out like a bandit!

X Files Pencils & Sharpener:  20170511_045429   Yup… The X Files Pencil and Sharpener was included in this month’s crate…. Enough said lol.

Jessica Jones Figure:   20170511_045406  Each Lootcrate will include some type of figure or collectible. This month was a pretty cool Jessica Jones figure that is already mounted on my shelf. I admit I have not yet checked out Jessica Jones (may have to add it to my Netflix Series of the Week) but I love a great female crime fighter and she’s wearing purple!!!!

This month’s crate was a little lackluster for me to be honest. I’m very happy that my WWE Slamcrate arrived at the same time and was AMAZING so the disappointment in this lootcrate wasn’t as bad. I’m probably going to try out the LootGaming crates as the regular Lootcrates aren’t that interesting to me. What did you think of this month’s crate? Did you like any of the items included? Do you have any subscription services? Let’s talk!

Enjoy your weekend!

WWE Slamcrate Unboxing!

Happy Sunday Novas! This week I’ve received 2 Lootcrates; one for my bi-monthly WWE Slamcrate and one for the monthly standard Lootcrate. Today’s post will be the WWE crate and Tuesday I will show the standard Lootcrate. The theme for this month’s crate was “Master of the Mic!” It features some of the best trash talkers in WWE history so I was very excited for it’s release. Let’s get into the contents!

20170504_202416
If you remember my Favorite wrestler’s of all time post, you will know that Stone Cold is my FAVORITE!!!!

The first item I was interested in was the T Shirt. Each crate brings an exclusive T Shirt and this one was the Finn Balor shirt. Side Note: I already knew 2 items that were going to be in this month’s crate because I was able to preview the crate at Wrestlemania Axxess last month.

20170504_202438

The Next Item was a pair of WWE Microphone glasses. One was to pay tribute to the Smack Talker C=Skywalker, Enzo Amore and the other was a standard WWE Mic used to lay the verbal Smackdown on any and every Superstar from the best in the biz!

20170507_110811

This next item I was super excited for. You know I collect Pops and other collectibles so having this WWE Ring figure with Stone Cold Steve Austin is the best prize I could ask for! A little inside tip is that the next 3 boxes will also include these figures so that you can collect all 4 and make a full ring! Great marketing as I have subscribed for 6 additional months to collect all of the ring figures lol.

20170507_110709

There’s a great Masters of the Mic booklet that shows some of the greatest trash talkers and their best moments! Remember “Austin 3:16 says I just Whipped Your A..” or “The Doctor of Thuganomics.” It’s a great book recounting some of the best rivalries and their iconic phrases.

Lastly we have the WWE Universal Championship pin. Each crate includes a collectible pin as well.

20170504_202530

This is probably my favorite crate by far as I love EVERYTHINGGGGG in the crate this month. Also I have a new poster for my wall in THE GREAT ONE!!!!

Feel Free To Use My Promo Code to Get Started! http://looted.by/fw2yz Lootcrate Promo Code

What did you think of this month’s items? Do you subscribe to any Lootcrate or Subscription services? Let’s talk subscriptions! Have a great Sunday all!

But first, let’s take a look at last month’s question and find out who won…

Last month’s results: what’s the best Easter-egg within a video game?

We received 18 votes in our poll – slightly less than in previous months but still great nonetheless – and received a range of additional answers from the community. Here’s the breakdown:

    WWE Payback Results

    Happy Monday Novas! Thank you for reading today’s recap post from last night’s Raw Exclusive Pay Per View event; Payback! You can read my prediction post by clicking here. Payback was the first event after Wrestlemania 33. Some of the story lines that developed after the ultimate thrill ride met up here at Payback. Let’s get into the matches!

    Kickoff Show- The kickoff show is where the night’s events are broken down by analysts. On this show we seen a match between tag teams Enzo and Cass versus The Club Gallows and Anderson. I didn’t do a prediction for this match since it was a kickoff match, but I was really happy when Enzo and Cass won!

    Also in the kickoff show we had Finn Balor as a special guest on Miz TV with the Miz and Maryse. After our hosts being denied entrance into the Balor Club (by the wwe universe and Finn Balor) the insults rained down unto Balor.  pb7  Results: Finn Balor derails Miz TV and shuts the Miz up!

    United States Championship Match- The first match up was between Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. This match had a few glimpses of Wrestlemania where KO survived the Walls of Jericho by the TIP of his fingers lol. This match went the way I predicted and ushered in a new member of Smackdown.  pb6   Results: Chris Jericho wins the United States Championship!

    Crusierweight Championship Match- The next match up on the card was the Cruiserweight Championship match between King of the Cruiserweights Neville and the ever confident Austin Aries. If you recall these 2 met at Wrestlemania where Neville clawed at Aries’ eyes to retain his title. After Aries winning a #1 Contender match versus Jack Gallagher, TJP and Mustafa Ali (one of my new favorite cruiserweights) he set his sights back on the champion. My predictions were semi correct in this match.  pb5  Results: Austin Aries Wins!!!!! …. by disqualification so he is not the champion -_-. Well played Neville!

    Raw Tag Team Championship Match- The Raw Tag Team Champions the Hardy Boyz faced Sheamus and Cesaro in a match for the titles. This match was entertaining and after the “Sportsmanship” each team had shown each other the past 2 weeks on Raw you expected it to be a graceful exchange… or not. My prediction was pretty much spot on for this match. Results: The Hardy Boyz retain their titles… but Sheamus and Cesaro attack them after the match solidifying them as a Heel team.

    Raw Women’s Championship Match- Up next was a match that I was really eager to see. The Women’s Championship match between new Raw Superstar Alexa Bliss and the champ Bayley. I love Bayley but I actually like Alexa Bliss more. Here character suits her really well as a Heel and I’m super happy with the decision to change from a Face (Back in NXT) to a Heel character. There’s too many “Face” Superstars with titles right now so I’m not surprised by Alexa Bliss having a title shot. Prediction’s correct again.  pb3   Results: Alexa Bliss is the new Raw Women’s Champion!

    Seth Rollins vs Samoa Joe- It’s funny that the card for this Pay Per View thrusted all of the title matches first and saved the closing matches to non title, straight up brawls. My husband Seth Rollins defeated Triple H at Wrstlemania on his way to a new “Face” role at WWE. The path to redemption has to go through The Destroyer; Samoa Joe who made his debut onto the main roster by attacking The Architect on behalf of Triple H. This match has been brewing over the weeks and culminated with Samoa Joe locking in the Cocina Clutch on Rollins. My predictions held strong.  pb8  Results: Seth Rollins for the Win! F=Via rolling over and pinning Joe while he had the sleeper hold in rofl! Brains over Brawn prevails! 

    House of Horrors Match- The long awaited rematch between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt was pretty good. The House of Horrors match consisted of both Superstars meeting in well a creepy house to fight. They tore down the walls of the house and took us through the different rooms with haunting memories and dolls? lol. It was a pretty good match but it really could have taken place in the ring as I wasn’t that impressed with the “House” element.  pb2   Anyway Results: Bray Wyatt defeats Randy Orton.

    Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns- The main event was the Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman match. This match probably excited the WWE Universe the most becuase they want to see Roman beat down. I wasn’t really feeling this match but probably becuase I was upset lol. So you know the outcome (even though I wished my prediction would be rigt lol).  pb1  Results: Braun Strowman destroys Roman. Happy now WWE?

    The event was pretty good and entertaining to me. I’ve enjoyed the matches and most of my predictions were correct. What did you think of the event? What were your favorite matches or not so favorite moments? What do you think will happen now on tonight’s Monday Night Raw? Let’s talk WWE?
