Elimination Chamber Results!

Happy Monday Superstars! Last night was the RAW Brand Exclusive Elimination Chamber event which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada! We seen a few “1sts” in the event and overall I thought RAW put on a great (albeit predictable) show! Let’s jump into the matches and results and if you haven’t watched the event yuet, this if your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!**

Raw Women Elimination Chamber Match-

elim5

Both Elimination chamber matches were great but the show kicked off with the 1st ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match. The Superstars were locked in the Chamber with 2 women starting and the 4 locked in pods. Every 5 minutes a random pod would open to allow another competitor in the match. This was elimination rules and the winner left Las Vegas with the Raw Women’s Championship belt! The Superstars participating were Bayley, Sasha Banks, Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose, Alexa Bliss and Mickie James! The Women put on a great show using the cage well to their advantage. You know a match is good if you’re afraid to look at some of the stunts performed. Bayley and Sonya Deville started the match with the other 4 ladies locked in the pod. 1 by 1 they started entering into the match. Leading up to the match we knew that Bayley and Sasha Banks, Mandy Rose and Sonya and Alexa and Micki were in their respective “alliances.” Most of the Superstars teamed up to give themselves the best opportunity to win.

 

Mandy Rose was eliminated first with the Banks Statement, putting her Absolution sister at a disadvantage. The ladies were scaling to new heights, literally and making a great match. elim6

Results: Alexa Bliss Retains her championship, with an oscar worthy performance with her promo at the end!

 

Raw Tag Team Titles –

Next up was the tag team championship match where The Bar Sheamus and Cesaro took on Titus O’Neill and Apollo Crews. I didn’t watch much of this match so I can’t comment on the execution.

Results: Sheamus and Cesaro Retain

 

Nia Jax versus Asuka –

elim4

This match was set up to allow Asuka and Nia to duke it out. If Nia wins, she is entered into the Women’s Championship match at Wrestlemania, if Asuka wins her undefeated streak continues and she has her 1 on 1 match at Wrestlemania. Asuka was quick, agile and hard striking and Nia was her dominant self tossing Asuka around the ring at times. The match went pretty much the way I expected but it was good none the less.

Results: Asuka wins.

Bray Wyatt versus Matt Hardy

Another match that I wasn’t interested in at all. Sad to say but I hope Jeff returns soon.

Results: Matt Hardy Wins.

 

Ronda Rousey Contract Signing-

ronda

So you knew something was going to happen when it was announced that a live contract signing would take place with the “Baddest Woman on the Planet.” I was expecting a locker room protest, attack from behind, something to get the adrenaline moving. Sure enough you see Kurt Angle very distraught and HHH trying to calm him down. Then it happens, Kurt spills the beans that Stephanie McMahon and HHH are manipulating Rousey which didn’t bode well for the UFC former champion. She puts HHH through a table and her whole demeanor changes!

It looks like the Stone Cold versus Vince McMahon but the Women’s version with Ronda taking on Stephanie McMahon. Really excited to see what happens on RAW.

 

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match-

elim

This was my favorite match of the night. For the first time, 7 Superstars were placed in the Elimination Chamber with 3 starting and 4 in pods. The competitors were Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Elias Samson, The Miz and John Cena. Seth, Miz and Finn started which was a good starting line up. Miz was up to his usual antics trying to team up with Seth versus Finn and when the architect declined, offering his alliance to Balor. The first few minutes were entertaining with Miz being tossed around while Balor and Seth fight. The highlight was Balor and Rollins taking turns knocking Miz back down when he tried to get to his feet. The match was really good and became even better when the 6th Superstar, Braun Strowman was released into the chamber.

As expected everyone tried to team up but Braun demolished the field single handedly eliminating most of the competitors. At one point Braun was hit with the AA from Cena, Spear from Reigns, Curb Stomp from Rollins and the Coup de Gras from Balor to lay mangled outside of the ring. Too bad no one could move him back in and PIN HIM!!!! The final match-up was of course Braun versus Roman.

 

Results: Roman Reigns is Brock Lesner’s opponent at Wrestlemania.

Highlights:

  • The costumes from some of the Superstars.
  • The stare downs of the competitors locked in the chamber pods
  • Good executions and promos

 

So I was pretty pleased with the Pay Per View event and the performances of the Superstars. As I started watching pretty late, I did skip 2 matches that I didn’t have any interest in but the main matches were really good. Once again I am amazed at the talent and depth of the Women’s Division and I can’t wait to see the fallout of the event tonight on RAW. Have you watched Elimination Chamber? What were your favorite moments? What do you think will happen now leading into Wrestlemania? Let’s talk WWE!

Royal Rumble 2018 Results!

Happy Monday Superstars! Thank you for reading today’s recap post of the 2018 Royal Rumble that took place last night in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and it was a great kickoff to the Wrestlemania Season! Please keep in mind that spoilers of the event is inbound, so if you did not watch you may want to stop reading now. This is your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!**

WWE Championship Match –

092_RR_01282018jg_02781--e014f0408f63dab8472a30b3001c7010

The first match of the night was the WWE Championship title match where champion AJ Styles fought against both Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. This handicap match was a great way to begin the night and it delivered. Everything that we would expect from a handicap match was delivered and AJ Styles put on a “Phenomenal” showing. This match was weird for me as I like AJ Styles but I also Love Kevin Owens and his newly reunited friendship with Sami Zayn (although it pales in comparison to JeriKO lol). I was cooking during this match so I didn’t get the play by play, but from what I did watch, I was impressed.

Results: AJ Styles retains his title!

Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship Match-

120_RR_01282018ej_03410--16a955da37571ef2547055ef3227ae57

Next up was the SD Live Tag Team match where The Usos took on Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin. The tag team division over at SD Live has been ramping up its game lately and Gable and Benjamin always put on a great show. I was still cooking so I didn’t see too much of this match.

Results: The Usos retain their title

Mens Royal Rumble Match – 161_RR_01282018mm_7456--23431da0110754851d77e3421b817d1b

I was pleasantly surprised that the Men’s Royal Rumble was 3rd on the card. Normally this will be the main event match, but WWE had other plans in store. The 1st 2 starting Superstars were Rusev and Finn Balor, who both lasted pretty long in the match. We had a few surprises with the NXT Champion Andrade Cien Almas entering the rumble and Sami Zayn taking out Tye Dillinger at number 10 to enter in his place. I was very surprised when “ BURN IT DOWNNNNNN” played and my husband came running down the ramp in fire and flames pants. One moment that was fantastic for me (albeit predictable) was when Roman Reigns eliminated Seth Rollins and they exchanged looks of understanding… Seth I love you, but you did have that coming lol. Number 30 wasn’t the shocker that we all wanted, but Dolph Ziggler coming in was cool. Another highlight was the warm up match for a few Superstars where they came down the ramp and hit Heath Slater lol.

 Here’s the rumble entry order:

  1. Rusev
  2. Finn Balor
  3. Rhyno
  4. Baron Corbin
  5. Heath Slater
  6. Elias
  7. WWE NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas
  8. Bray Wyatt
  9. Big E
  10. Tye Dillinger (spot stolen by Sami Zayn)
  11. Sheamus
  12. Xavier Woods
  13. Apollo Crews
  14. Shinsuke Nakamura
  15. Cesaro
  16. Kofi Kingston
  17. Jinder Mahal
  18. RAW Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins
  19. Matt Hardy
  20. John Cena
  21. “The Hurricane” Shane Helms
  22. Aiden English
  23. Adam Cole
  24. Randy Orton
  25. Titus O’Neil
  26. WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz
  27. Rey Mysterio
  28. Roman Reigns
  29. Goldust
  30. Dolph Ziggler

Results: Nakamura is going to Wrestlemania!

Raw Tag Team Championship Match-

175_RR_01282018ej_07323--62c40e280f0d212c69745b40a3abf635

After the rumble, my husband and half of the Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins took on the Bar with a cameo from Jason Jordan. I can’t stand Jordan and I hate that he costs Seth Rollins matches over and over and over again. I say cameo because if you did watch, Jordan spent most of the match laying by the side of the ring holding his head smh. Seth fought a great match against the bar until Jason tagged himself in and immediately tagged himself back out. I can’t stand him, really. I did like the match and Seth pulled out a move that I haven’t seen in a while.

Results: The Bar are the new Raw Tag Team Champions.

Universal Championship Match –

213_RR_01282018jg_07997--c6281988aa1403be7704325b647c9744

The triple threat match between champion Brock Lesner, Braun Strowman and Kane. This match was great with all the roughness that a WWE fan would expect. Braun dominated early putting everyone through tables and rising like a beast when he was put through one by the Beast. Brock took Braun to Suplex City  and Kane was handing out chokeslams like hotcakes. What more could you want?

Results: Brock Lesner Retains -_-

Women’s Royal Rumble Match

239_RR_01282018ej_09236--cf0814dd6b50653bfca61cea11d0b148

Firstly, I was surprised and excited when I realized that the Women’s match would be the main event of the Royal Rumble. There’s so many talented Superstars and it was an amazing match all around. The starting women were Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch. I was extremely impressed with the women’s rumble and when Lita came in at number 5 I jumped off the sofa screaming, “I knew it, I knew it!” There were many surprise entrants like Molly Holly and Kelly Kelly that had me geeking out. When Nikki Bella came out I was clapping my hands and I looked to my friend and said, I wonder if Brie will come out? Sure enough Brie came out next! Number 30 for the Women’s match was a surprise as Trish Stratus came out. I thought it would be Ronda Rousey but it’s ok.

Here’s the Entrance Order:

  1. Sasha Banks
  2. Becky Lynch
  3. Sarah Logan
  4. Mandy Rose
  5. WWE Hall of Famer Lita
  6. Kairi Sane
  7. Tamina Snuka
  8. Dana Brooke
  9. Torrie Wilson
  10. Sonya Deville
  11. Liv Morgan
  12. Molly Holly
  13. Lana
  14. Michelle McCool
  15. Ruby Riott
  16. Vickie Guerrero
  17. Carmella
  18. Natalya
  19. Kelly Kelly
  20. Naomi
  21. WWE Hall of Famer Jacqueline Moore
  22. Nia Jax
  23. WWE NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon
  24. WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix
  25. Asuka
  26. Mickie James
  27. Nikki Bella
  28. Brie Bella
  29. Bayley
  30. WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus

274_RR_01282018ej_12680--64f54f8ba59cff903b5a01b5c698ac30

Results: No One Is Ready For Asuka!

But wait… there’s more! Charlotte and Alexa Bliss came in the ring so that Asuka could select her opponent for Wrestlemania. Before she could choose RONDA ROUSEY came out! Yes, that’s right! I knew it, I knew it, Ronda Rousey is in the WWE! Hopefully more will be announced tonight on Monday Night Raw.  20180128_RoyalRumble_RumbleWomen_Photo_Rousey_Asuka--424573cb447ced0f92c9b827be5e4104

 

Highlights:

  • Naomi’s tricks to get back in the ring without being eliminated
  • The pancake barrage by The New Day
  • Nakamura’s win and his decision to face AJ Styles at Wrestlemania
  • The Generations stare between Cena, Orton and Rey Mysterio versus Roman, Finn and Nakamura.

 

It was a great Rumble and 10X better than last year. The matches were good and the results were pretty good as well. I can’t wait to see Monday Night Raw tonight and hopefully, Ronda Rousey will be back! What did you think of the event? What were your favorite matches? What are your predictions for the fallout this week and what are your Wrestlemania Predictions? Let’s talk Royal Rumble!

WWE Survivor Series Recap!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the annual Survivor Series Payperview event where Smackdown Live takes on Monday night Raw to battle for the best brand! It has been another fantastic week of wrestling from Raw to Smackdown, to NXT to my WWE SlamCrate finally arriving (unboxing post coming this week) and now to the Survivor Series Event! I was really impressed with the event. So are you Team Raw or Team Smackdown Live? Let’s find out who took the night!

The Shield Versus The New Day – Survivor Series started out with a bang when the factions of The Shield took on the New Day. This match was really good with the New Day using their relax antics… well that is until they are hit hard by Roman Reigns. The crowd was mostly on the side of the Shield as expected, but the New Day started to focus and put up a great fight in the end.  177_SUR_11192017hm_1058--22e138cb4f6e3014f0cf5990f91d1eb7  This outcome wasn’t surprising to anyone. The New Day put up a great fight using their unorthodox style of wrestling. There was one move where Xavier Woods lifted Big E on his shoulders and Kofi Kingston jumped off of the top rope, over E and Woods onto Dean Ambrose, followed by a Splash from E onto Dean. It was a sick combination.

182_SUR_11192017hm_1074--258867901821f3a6b0f2c259a09b8d6c

Results: The Shield reign supreme. Pinfall by triple powerbomb from the second rope. Yikes, Kofi, Yikes! Raw strikes first on the scoreboard with 1 win to Smackdown Live’s 0 wins.

Women’s 5 on 5 Traditional Survivor Series Match- The fatal 5 way was up next that put Team Smackdown (Becky Lynch, Natayla, Tamina, Naomi and Carmella ) against Team Raw ( Alicia Fox, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Asuka and Nia Jax). 186_SUR_11192017bb_0713--b1201e8428f961e32d101ff29cc18336 The women’s match was entertaining and the pep talk by Stephanie Mcmahon before the match definitely brought intensity to the Raw brand.

222_SUR_11192017bb_0975--6a298223999b97b3553c2b880c52d9ea

Results: Asuka is propelled forward as the victor by taking out both Natalya and Tamina. I think this dominance  is going to automatically put Asuka in the Women’s Championship picture. This win pouts Raw up 2 wins to Smackdown Live’s 0 wins.

 

United States Champion versus Intercontinental Champion– I didn’t pay too much attention to this match so we will get into the results.

231_SUR_11192017jg_2131--36e71b94a0e6d8fae3913d98e7e908ff

Results: Baron Corbin wins by hitting Miz with the End of Days! This puts Smackdown Live on the board and the score is not Raw 2 wins, Smackdown Live 1 win.

 

Smackdown Tag Team Champions versus Raw Tag Team Championship – Champions Cesaro and Sheamus take on The Usos in a battle for tag team supremacy. The Bar were unsuspecting opponents as they used the distraction by the New Day to take the tag team titles from Dean and Seth. The Usos were the heavy favorites and they entered the ring talking about the different “Bars” that Sheamus and Cesaro represent.  256_SUR_11192017jg_2598--517c9a307653042be611f1c6d2675698 The Bar countered the Usos sly talking abilities with hard hitting moves and  dominated the beginning of the match. The Usos eventually found their sea legs and put up an equally impressive fight.

277_SUR_11192017hm_2508--43f03539997b47e39f7a715b959015bd

Results: The Usos win with a nice ending combination and tie up the score 2 Wins for Smackdown Live and 2 Wins for Raw!

 

Smackdown Women’s Champion versus Raw Women’s Champion – Alexa Bliss was set to take on Natalya until Charlotte won the Smackdown Women’s Championship match last Tuesday. This threw a wrench in the Goddess’ plan, but she came out ready to fight. 288_SUR_11192017hm_3175--5fd6317fbe3d1be71bfad546f84613cf Charlotte showed her technique and it was like watching David versus Goliath at one moment. Alexa Bliss held her own and she brought the intensity and mean streak that we are used to seeing.

302_SUR_11192017hm_3226--98123fe7ca5fefd7c93e427ec78825c9

Results: Charlotte wins by submission. Alex taps out to the figure 8. Smackdown takes the lead in the night for the first time and go up 3 wins to Raw’s 2 wins.

 

Universal Champion versus WWE Champion – Brock Lesner took on Aj Sytyles for the battle of the number 1 title in the WWE. Off rip Brock asserted his dominance and was literally tossing Styles around the ring. At one point, he grabbed AJ’s haig and dragged him to a corner.  After about 5 minutes of beating Aj Styles to a pulp, the daze started to wear off and Aj was able to counter with hard hitting moves of his own. 334_SUR_11192017hm_3778--bb70ba306e4d42e6e1e9a9c09e279250 I have to give credit to the WWE Universe as they stayed behind AJ the whole time!

313_SUR_11192017jg_3393--9e653b5440bcd254a82dea90d15075e8

Results: Brock catches AJ and hits him with the F5 to win by pinfall.

 

Men’s 5 on 5 Traditional  Survivor Series Match-  344_SUR_11192017hm_4114--f3913d40b9143d2190cb8ae756f2db0f The men’s 5 on 5 match saw Team Raw (Kurt Angle, Braun Stroman, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe and Triple H) take on Team Smackdown (Shane Mcmahon, Randy Orton, Nakamura, Bobby Roode and John Cena). Braun started the match and immediately showed that he was not messing around when he tossed Shane across the ring. Of course the pompous Shane quickly tagged himself out because, well he didn’t want that fight. Raw struck first with Nakamura going on a spree of knee strikes before running into a brick wall and being the first eliminated. This match seen awesome match-ups like Triple H & Bobby Roode  349_SUR_11192017jg_4665--139a6a7a068ac23c91c916b8bd1d6286 and the always fun Finn Balor and Nakamura!

The match was riddled with controversy from Samoa Joe tagging himself in and riling up his teammates, to Kevin Owens and Sami Zane coming out to attack Shane. The Game Triple H even got involved and helped Shane eliminate Kurt Angle.

373_SUR_11192017bb_2011--73313c0a62c77280dc3a3fdd0c208de3

Results: Team Raw wins with Triple H pedigreeing Shane after a controversial move. Team Raw takes the Survivor Series count 4 wins to Smackdown Live’s 3 wins. This year wasn’t a complete blowout like last year’s 6 wins to 1, but Raw still got it done.

Those are the results from last Night’s Survivor Series event! Did any of the match outcomes surprise you? Were you Team Raw or Team Smackdown? What do you think will happen on the respective shows’ fallout tonight and tomorrow? Are you seeing any potential rivalries starting? Let’s talk WWE!

NXT Wargames Recap!

Happy Sunday Novas! Last night was the NXT Wargames event in Houston Texas. This is my first NXT Match that I have watched in awhile and it was so worth it. Some names ring a bell but there’s a lot of new talent going into the event. War Games is a match where teams battle between 2 rings inside of a steel cage. This type of match has not been seen for 20 years so the WWE Universe was ready to rumble. Nxt has grown as a brand from a developmental area to a legitimate show. If you haven’t watched the event yet, stop reading now! This is your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!**

Khassius Ohno vs Lars Sullivan– 2 giants collide in the opening match of the event. Ohno showing off the athleticism for his size while Lars is showing his speed and power. This match had me saying “Oh Snap” a few times. The cyclone kick of Khassius Ohno takes the giant decimator of Lars SUllivan to the ground. It wasn’t enough, Lars Sullivan hits his finisher the Freak Accident on Ohno to end things.

001_NXT_11182017hm_1310--06c368a5477cd353169df42b68f1abc4

Results: Sullivan wins by pinfall.

Aleister Black versus Velveteen Dream – Aleister black enters the match on an undefeated streak. Velveteen Dream aims to have black “Say his Name” and acknowledge him as a legitimate competitor. The match starts with a great entrance b black, rising from the shadows. It’s a battle of polar opposites where the darkness meets the vibrant light of Velveteen Dream. This match was the battle of the mind games where you have back and forth combinations and one ups from both sides.  012_NXT_11182017ej_2096--ce0c6569c62a2bdcd458fde3e4fdc59c What makes NXT so refreshing is that these athletes are raising the bar and bringing out move rooms. This match was highly entertaining from the trolls to the devastating moves and execution. I;ve seen some great moves like the Death Valley Driver and the Roll the Dice. The crowd doesn’t lie and they were letting the performers know how awesome the match was.

016_NXT_11182017hm_1673--5f4f124bb716982d75d665ae75697953

Results: Aleister Black retains his undefeated Streak, but Velveteen Dream gave him a run for his money.
NXT Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way – After Asuka vacated her championship for her ascent to the main roster of raw, there was a series of matches to determine which women would compete for the title. The winner of the Mae Young Classi, Pirate Princess Kairi Sane, Iconic Peyton Royce, Ember Moon and the crazed Nikki Cross are the women stepping into the ring. One is guaranteed to leave with the title and become the face of the NXT Women’s Division. All 4 women had different strengths: Peyton is the flexible technician, Kairi is the entertaining hot head, Ember is the strong high flyer and Nikky is the unhinged x factor.  019_NXT_11182017ej_2714--f5b533f4319f18b372c3de20318048b7  This women’s match was fantastic and had everything that you would ask for. My heart was pounding as each woman covered one another looking for the 3 count. One of my favorite matches of the night because of the high skill level of the competitors.

022_NXT_11182017ej_2849--3c86ebff1151cd8bcb504cb128904f91

Results: Ember moon wins by the eclipse stunner on Nikki Cross and Peyton Royce! The new NXT Women’s Champion!

NXT Championship Match- The Men’s championship match was between champion Drew Mcintyre and Andrade Cien Almas.   025_NXT_11182017ej_4139--f6d460d9dbeefe44c7952bbf9918ccdb  With controversy and Zalina Vega interfering in the match, Drew had his back and his title against the wall.

030_NXT_11182017hm_3310--33fb75343b7325895bd10264500b02e0

Results: Andrade is the new NXT Champion. Wins by Pinfall.

War Games Match –  The Wargames match is a match where 2 rings are put together and a steel cage surrounds the competitors.  1 person from each team starts in the ring and every few minutes another team joins in from the outside cages, at random.  033_NXT_11182017ej_5253--29a445b7ab93fbacc45cafa934f52d2d  The great thing about this match was that it didn’t officially start until ALL 9 wrestlers were in the ring., which means that even though you were outnumbered, you didn’t have to worry about losing the match until all 3 teams were in the ring. At one point it was an advantage because Undisputed Authority was the first team together in the ring against, Roderick Strong and Eric Young. Next Authors of Pain were released to help Roderick and last Sanity made their way to the ring. This match was fantastic as Killian Dain of Sanity started through weapons like tables, chairs and trash bins into the ring before he got in and locked the gate.

The match was total anarchy with each team trying to destroy each other. There’s so many great moments that all I can say is GO AND WATCH! If you skip all other matches, the main event Wargames match is one that will be remembered. 20171118_NXT_P_MainEvent4--484a0beeef3d7051be65c0ff0e07a517

Results: Adam Coleeeee BayBay! Undisputed Era Wins by pinfall.

Final Thoughts: I have really enjoyed the War Games event and it makes me excited about the future talent to hit the main rosters in WWE. Some of the highlights for the night were:

  • The storylines and build up to the matches are really amazing. At the end of the Aleister Black match, as he traditionally sit in the middle of te ring, he uttered one phrase to the defeated Velveteen Dream… “Enjoy Infamy… Velveteen Dream!” The NXT roster are putting up quality selling of the moves and rivalries.
  • The characters that are created by the NXT stars are top notch. The commitment to their roles and profiles is definitely as good, if not better than most main roster superstars.

I feel really good about the Survivor Series match! If it is anything like the Wargames event, we are in for a great weekend of WWE!

Did you watch wargames? Which matches stuck out for you? Are you going to be watching Survivor Series tonight? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Raw Recap 11/13/17

Happy Tuesday Novas! Last night was the Raw before the Survivor Series PayPerView event where Team Raw will meet Team Smackdown for a battle of supremacy. The shows before the events are always some of the most entertaining and last night was no exception. Let’s get into the recap of the night and if you haven’t watched yet, this is your official **Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert!** Stop reading now or there will be spoilers. Let’s get to the highlights!

Stephanie Mcmahon starts the show belittling Kurt Angle about Survivor Series. She brings up his choice of the final RAW Men’s spot going to his son Jason Jordan and how it is favoritism.  Before uttering the words, “You’re Fired” made famous by her dad, the Shield interrupts with Roman reigns returning as well. They back up Kurt and his role as GM since Wrestlemania. 010_RAW_11132017dg_0294--24dfedeb606d556060e701a8769e3a1e

The banter between Stephanie and Roman Reigns was fun with Stephanie asking Roman “Where the hell have you been?”And Roman replying “ I should be asking you. We haven’t seen you for 6 or 7 months. Why because you went through a table?” Putting Rollins on the spot. This triggered the reprise “Or should I say because your husband put you through a table.” I was dyingggg lol.As predicted the shield challenges the new day for a fight at survivor series and later through Twitter the New Day accepts.

013_RAW_10172017cm_0403--59bf52a0e9ba221e2d6cabf39823dcb1

There was a Triple threat match for last spot on women’s team between Dana Brooke, Mickie James and Bayley. The 4 current Women Superstars on the team watched at ringside while the trio battled it out for the last spot. Asuka, in an attempt to help Dana Brooke was hit by the superstar. This is probably setting up a feud of Asuka vs Dana after Survivor Series. Let’s be honest, Asuka shouldn’t be helping anyone. That’s interfering with the match.  015_RAW_10172017cm_0414--cc3427f6902294577d18e17bbdb3a1f5 Results: Bayley wins (which I wanted to happen) and now Raw Women’s team looks stacked to take on the Women of Smackdown!

028_RAW_10172017cm_0891--aa9831ae74b815987e6e85a0774948c0

Tozawa and Kalisto vs Drew Gulak and Enzo Amore was up next. It was the battle of the chants. Drew Gulak is on another campaign to take a stance. This time he’s behind the “No Chants” movement. If you remember or watched 205 live, Gulak was the captain of the “No Fly Zone” campaign as well. Well he’s in the wrong match for that as both Tozawa and Kalisto had the crowding chanting “Ha” and “Lucha” throughout the match.   034_RAW_11132017dg_0489--1655ec3aea0fbea05d3097dff85fd011 Results: Enzo and Gulak win off of the quick thinking of Enzo and the assist by Gulak.

I love that this is the opposite of Enzo’s career legacy. Normally, Enzo would lose matches due to sneaky moves, but now he is the one dealing out the L’s. Badaboom, Enzo and Gulak in the room… How You Doing?

 

As the talented blogger Deezango pointed out, WWE has been really pushing more backstage promos and action. Kurt was backstage setting up matches for the night with survivor series participants. He needs to make sure that the team is in tip top shape as his job is on the line. The matches set up were Joe & Balor in a tag team versus Gallows & Andersen to teach teamwork, Jason Jordan versus Eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt to show Stephanie that he is prepared and  when he gets to Braun, the Monster Among Men shuts up the GM demanding his match with Kane. There’s nothing Kurt could say about his request so the main event was set!

Jason Jordan versus a returning Bray Wyatt was a match set to show Jordan’s resilience. Jordan puts on a convincing display, but he injures himself midway through the match. The crowd starting chanting thank you Bray for the injury and the cheap shots at the end of the match. I want to like Jason Jordan so bad, but the character is super annoying. He really needs a revamp and soon.

Results: Jordan wins but Bray gest the last laugh.

072_RAW_10172017cm_2084--bcb6177dc986095b67b0e2380e773037

Brock Lesner and Paul Heyman address the match now with AJ Styles. Heyman expressed his admiration and respect for AJ Styles, but of course he’s still backing the Beast Brock. Brock didn’t say much as usual and just sat there smiling and flexing.

The Shield versus Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro was up next. This match was the first time the shield fought in a match together in 3 years.  093_RAW_10172017cm_2538--17746670892301577b06b1a8c709188f  Remember, they were supposed to debut together in a sanctioned match at No Mercy, but Roman Reigns was out sick. The match was everything you would expect, entertainment, power moves and dirty tricks by both the shield and miz and friends. Even the assistance of the Miztourage could not help save the match for the Miz.

Results: The Shield takes the W and goes into Survivor Series with momentum to face the New Day.

Side Note: The crowd was not booing Roman as loudly as they normally have. Admit it people, you’re happy he’s back :p. shield--32e03c48badb905b1a8cc2404ccf4cf7

Kurt making the announcement of Jason Jordan not being about to compete because of injury. He steps out to name the 5th member and replacement. After a sob story from Jason, Kurt has a hard time announcing the replacement so… THE GAME Triple H comes out! Jason gets a pedigree “Oh It’s true, It’s Darn True!”

Finn Balor and Samoa Joe versus The Club Gallows & Andersen. The match starts with Joe being annoying and pushing Finn -_-.  After the tense start, the match went pretty smoothly for Finn and Joe. Joe protected Finn in the match a few times, although Finn assumed he was the target (I mean who wouldn’t?).

Results: Finn & Joe Win! But in true Joe spirit he didn’t wait to get his hand raised with Finn at the end.

The main event was between Braun Strowman and Kane. Strowman asked for the match after being attacked by the big red machine at No Mercy. It’s time for revenge! The match was pretty good. Both issuing hard blows to each other and setting the stakes higher each time. The match ended with Strowman performing a running powerslam and crashing through the ring. 20171113_RAW_S_Kane--88f401b159b84d54e6211ba8abb43532

Results: The show ended. Yikes!

That’s the recap of RAW! I will watch Smackdown tonight to see the final placings and matches that need to be decided (United States Championship & Women’s Championship). This Saturday my predictions for the Survivor Series match will go up! What are your thoughts? Are you Team Raw or Team Smackdown? What are your predictions or thoughts on WWE at the moment?

WWE Monday Night Raw 10/23/17 recap and thoughts!

Happy Tuesday Novas! I’m currently on my way to the airport to fly back home from my vacation. I feel like this has been a great month for wwe so I’ve decided to post my thoughts on last night’s RAW episode! Mild spoilers below so if uou havent watched yet, this is your official **SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!**

Last night was the RAW after the exclusive TLC payperview. Typically th3 shows before and after the events are the best because there’s so much leading up to and after the event. This week’s episode did not disappoint as the show started with general manager Kurt Angle talking about his match and the preceding nights festivities. Kurt was interuppted by the Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro and Curtis axle which had everyone standing on their feet. Why because we knew Seth and Dean would come to interfere which is exactly what happened.

After the banter and short brawl angle made a 3 on 3 tag match with Miz, Shemaus and Cesaro versus 2/3 of the Shield and special guest AJ Styles! The match was really good and pretty well executed. 

  Mixing up things with AJ was a great idea. Aj, Seth and Dean won only to be demolished by Kane at the end!

Kane sets to take Brauns place by declaring that he wanted competition and who do you think came out? To slay demon Kane I can’t think of anyone better then a demon king! Finn Balor answered the challenge and put on an entertaining match. This is a great look especially since the Bray vs Finn match has been a bit stale. 

It was a night of rematches where you saw Jason Jordan vs Elias Samson and a confrontation of Micki Names and Alexa Bliss. We also had a women’s triple threat match where Bayley, Sasha Banks and Alicia crazy Foxx battled for the Raw Womens Captain slot for survivor series! Surprisingly,  Foxy won and now team Raw will be team crazy and I’m excited!!! We had a special 5 on 5 Cruiserweight tag match where team Kalisto took on team Enzo. Since Enzo lost his voice, Drew Gulak did the intro and it was pretty funny. The teams were Kalisto, Mustafa Ali, Rich swann, Cedric Alexander and Grab Metalik versus Enzo, Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, Noam Dar and Ariya Davari. I’m so in love with the idea of cruiserweight getting more prime time air time and I hope the wwe universe is taking notice. These athletes are tremendous and their high flying moves are very entertaining! Also, th have a great story line at the moment. 

 We even had a visit from Shane McMahon ramping up for the Survivor Series event (one of my favorites) where team Raw will take on team Smackdown Live. Last year was pretty much a sweep even though the men’s match was gifted to Smackdown Live.

Riding that wave of salt, Shane interrupted Kurt when he was going to announce team Raw men superstars for survivor series. Shane can from the crowd with team Smackdown and placed Raw #undersiege! This was a fantastic move as Shane let Smackdown Superstars run rampant through the RAW locker room and jump the RAW talent (let’s n honest they have to jump them because they’d lose 1 on 1 lol). 

Shots were fired and I can’t wait to see what happens on smackdown live tonight!

All in all this was a fantastic night of wrestling. Smackdown Live is sure to be excellent as well as I am anxious to see if Raw retaliate after last night’s assault. Survivor Series is shaping up to look fantastic with champions versus champions and then the traditional Survivor Series match. Who do you think will be on RAW and Smackdowns rosters? Let’s talk wwe!

WWE TLC Recap!

Hapy Monday Novas! Last night was the Tables, Ladders & Chairs event that was Raw’s exclusive showing. Todya we will recap the night and give our opinions on the matches as well as the possible fallouts and setups for the next WWE event; Survivor Series! Let’s start with the kickoff show! I would like to say that I was perfect in my predictions for this match Read the predictions by clicking here!

Alicia Fox versus Sasha Banks – The two Superstars have had a budding rivalry ever since Alicia Foxx started appearing back n TV. The match was during the preshow and wasn’t a bad one at that. Results: Sasha Banks wins by submission!

Emma vs Asuka-  tlc2  The night started off with the debut of Empress of Tomorrow, Asuka! I have to admit, I thought the match would be a bit better but it wasn’t bad. Emma showed off a range of resilence and Asuka came in a bit flat to me, but still determined to make a great debut. Results: Asuka wins!

Cruiserweight match #1 –    The first cursierweight match was a tag team between The Brian Kendrick & Gentleman Jack Gallagher versus the team of Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann. This was a very entertaining match and Iam happy that the crusierweights are getting a bit more prime time air time. It was everything you would expect from high flying moves, to dynamic strikes that had the crowd starting a few chants. Results: Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann wins by pinfall!

Raw Women’s Championship Match –  tlc7   The Raw Women’s Champinship match was between challenger Micki James and Champion Alexa Bliss. After weeks of poking and prddingAlexa met Micki in the ring fr 1 on 1 combat. Both Superstars gave a pretty good performance and Alexa had to respect Micki’s abilities in ring. Results: Alexa James retains.

Cruiserweight Match #2 –   tlc8  The second crusierweight match was the championship match between Enzo Amore and champion Kalisto. This is Enzo’s rematch form losing the title to Kalisto a few weeks back. Enzo has taken on more of a heel role lately and I like it. He has always been a btit rough, but now he’s not pandering to the crowd and taking the full heel turn.  Results: Enzo wins by unscrupulous means!

Jason Jordan versus Elias Samson –  tlc6   This match became a thing during the event. At the beginning of the show, Json was cheering on his dad Kurt Angle when Elias iteruppted, insulted Jordan and asked to go out and play some music. Elias came out twice during the night with his guitar and was frced off stage by Jordan throwing vegetables at him. It was pretty funny and I think it is making Jordan’s character a bit more likeable. Fast forward to the match where Jordan battled Elias and put on a gret show! He is a great technician and with a bit more mic work and likeability he can definitely become a star in the WWE. Results: Booker T lost himself when Jordan won by pinfall. The problem was that Samson’s shoulder was up and they kept showing it on the replay.

First Main Event-  tlc5  I’m pretty much calling the match between Finn Balor and Aj Styles the first main event because it was a dream match! I’ve been wanting to see the 2 club leaders go at it with their similar styles and builds. This match was last minute as Bray Wyatt was unable t wrestle and you can see a few times where their moves didn’t sync up. Was it the dream match that knocked us out of our seats, no, but it was still pretty darn good! My gripe with the match was that Finn seemed to wrestle like “Finn” and  nt the “Demon King.” There’s a bit of a difference becuase the Demon is more aggressive and full out and I didn’t get that vibe last night. Aj was Phenomenal as always and kudos for putting together a match last minute. Results: Finn Balor wins but gives AJ the clubs hand gesture to solidify respect.

Second Main Event-  tlc3  The true main event was the Tables, Ladders and Chairs handicap match between Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrse and Kurt Angle taking on The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun Strowman and Kane. This match was brewing since the start of the show with Seth and Dean providing Kurt with a vest. Kurt is stepping in for Roman Reigns who wasn’t cleared to wrestle tonight (although I was waiting for his music to play and him to run down to the ring all match long lol). Kurt joined the Shield in the entrance and they entered the ring with chairs. After a few minutes of having the upper hand by beating down everyone with chairs the numbers started to affect the team of 3. Regaining the upper hand Seth and Dean stoopped my heart by jumping off of ladders onto Kane and Strowman on the announcers table. I was screaming Seth your kneeee!!! lol. This gave way for the 3 remaining Superstars to beat up Kurt and send him back to the locker room. After much back and forth, something that was hinted at the beginning happened. Kane and Braun exchanged a weird look that I thought nothing of before Kane smacked Braun in the back with a chair.  tlc1  From there the match got away from Miz with Brauna nd Kane fighting each other as well. Kurt returns and we had a few great Olympic slams before Miz gets tripled powerbombed. Results: The Shield + Kurt Angle wins by pinfall. Did you expect any other result?

Those were the results from the match and while it wasn’t the best event to date, the 2 main events definitely made the event worth watching. Also the crusierweight #1 match was pretty good. I would give the event overall a C rating but those 3 matches get A++. What did you think of the event? What do you think will happen tonight on RAW leading up to Survivor Series? What was your favorite match last night? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Hell In A Cell Recap

Happy Monday Novas and Players! Last nght was the Smackdown Live Exclusive Hell in the Cell event. It took place in Detroit, Michigan and boy was the crowd as rowdy and fired up as you would expect! Definitely one of my more enjoyable Smackdown events so let’s jump right into the matches as they occured!

New Day vs The Usos– As promised the 2 tag teams raised the bar again by having a tag team Hell In the Cell match. Not even 10 minutes into the match before the crowd started chanting “this Is Awesome!” Here’s why! Big E Speared Jimmy Uso out of the ring and into the cell. This came after te Usos jumped over the ropes to collide into Xavier Woods into the cell. We seen Francesca’s family as the usos were hit with 2 trumpets, 1 cowbell and a gong. Who says the New Day are not entertaining? Kofi was outside of the cell watching the Usos demolish his team, at one pint watching the homage to Rikishi where Wood’s face met Jimmy’s rear end. The moves were large and fit for a main event in my opinion, great way to open the show!

Results: The Usos win the Smackdown Tag Team titles by the Double Uce (Splashes from the top rope) to gain the pinfall. The Usos are 5 time champions!

Rusev Versus Randy Orton– This match didn’t catch my eye too much. It was a battle that was tough and brutal. This match was just not that interesting to me. I watched the entire thing but yet I have nothing to write about it.

Results: Randy Orton wins with the RKO and pinfall.

United States Championship Match– So during the kickoff show, Tye Dillengerapproached Daniel Bryan and asked to be inserted into the match. That’s right, we had a triple threat match for the United States Chanpionship. At the start of the match, Aj and Tye teamed up against Baron Corbin, all the while the crowd was chanting “Where’s Your Briefcase?” This was a theme that continued as Corbin cotinued the match. As expected, Dillenger and Styles used their agility and speed while Corbin used his size and strength. This triple threat included great combinations of each Superstar using their signature moves. I really enjoyed the match. Highlight of the macth, Corbin heckling the hecklers “Yeah but she’ll go home with me buddy!” rofl. There were plenty of “Oh Shoot!” moments in this match. Great job to all 3 Superstars. The crowd at one point stood up and clapped for the sequence of events in the ring.

Results: The phenomenal forearm saves the day and… BARON CORBIN SWOOPS IN TO PIN TYE DILLENGER!!!! You read it right, Styles hit the finishing move on Dillenger, but Corbin ejected Stles from the ring and pinned Tye for the title. Great match!

WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship – Wrestling Royalty Natayla takes on the Queen Charlotte in a dream match. Of course WWE will try and pit a “Hart” versus a “Flair” in a sort of legacy match! This reminds me of royal days where feuding families would carry on for generations. At first glance there were a few botches by Charlotte. This is her first title match in a while so I think she may have been a bit riled up.

Results: Charlotte wins by DQ. Natayla started beating her with a chair and got herself disqualified. Because it’s a title match, Nattie keeps her title smh.

WWE World Championship Match- Nakamura showed off some new moves in his radical entrance. I don’t know what it is but Nakamura’s entrance is like being at a concert. The WWE Universe sang along with the Violin as the artist perfrmed beautifully. Nakamura has a great awareness of the ring. Everythings so smooth as he litrally dances around the ring. Mahal is using his brute strength to slow down and incapacitate the challenger.

 

 

 

I loved the New Day’s outfits. They are promoting the UpUp Down Down YouTube channel which is smart.

Seeing the more serious side of the New Day that’s been brought out by the Usos give them more credibilit as a legitimate tag team.

The crowd reactions to the excellent execution of moves and their chants!

WWE No Mercy Results!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the first PPV event since Summerslam and boy was it one of the most exciting nights in Sports Entertainment! I can say that while I am always happy for WWE events, I was not particularly knees weak bursting with excitement for No Mercy. I will preference the results post to say that personally, this was one of the most put together, exciting nights in WWE! Let’s get to the results.

Intercontinental Title- First up was the Intercontinental Title Macth between defending champion The Miz and the challenger Jason Jordan! This match originated from the Miz’s disrespect and comments for Kurt Angle, Jason’s father. I can say that I didn’t watch all of this match because I wasn’t that interested in it, however, the parts I did view were pretty good. I’m not sure why Jason’s transition to a solo performer didn’t bring his fans from American Alpha, but as I’ve mentioned before, There’s just something about his character that doesn’t connect with me.  jj  Results: The Miztourage comes through and the Miz retains his title!

Finn vs Bray- The Man versus an match was a challenge issued by Bray Wyatt after losing at Summerslam to the Demon Finn Balor. Bray states that Finn can’t beat him, only a demon can so he wanted to face our hero without the makeup. My grievance again with this match is that Bray considers himself a “god” so why issue a Man vs Man challenge. It’s stupid for his image as the Eater of Worlds. Bray as expected attacked Finn before the match rendering him helpless. This match was pretty good as Finn didn’t leave and fought as best he could with high energy kicks and moves.  finn   Results: Finn Balor won!

Raw Tag Team Championship- Defending champions Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose takes on the Bar Sheamus and Cesaro. This is the rematch between the 2 powerhouse teams with Sheamus and Cesaro trying to stir the pot. For many reasons, this was one of my favorite matches. Aside from my mild obssession with Seth Rollins, this match was everything you would want from the high energy moves to the power and domination that you would expect. The 3rd match issued in the first “This is Awesome” chants from the WWE Universe and it was chanting a few times during the match. Each time these 2 teams fight, there are new moves displayed and it’s a treat for the fans. Results: My husband retains his tag team title! Seth and Dean win, while sending Cesaro to the dentist lol! cesaro

Raw Women’s Championship Match- The fatal 5 way match surprised me just absed off of the sheer skill and performance of the women. 5 star rating for the match alone! Champion Alexa Bliss took on Sasha Banks, Bayley, Emma and Nia Jax. The WWE Universe was pretty loud for this match becasue the women really did a fantastic job! The moves displayed especially by Nia Jax had the crowd off of their feet and screaming!   20170924_No_Mercy_post_womens--70b3e0fe55d42275bd6127df0af1b0e6  Results: Alexa Bliss retains!

Cena vs Roman Reigns- comparison recap between 2 icons. You both suck chants lol.But the WWE Universe was chanting the loudest for this match. We’re not on the mic now John, you’ve got to fight. The matches between John Cena are never something to take lightly. There’s a reason he called out Roman Reigns and tonight we found out why. Cena and Reigns had a  highly entertaining match. From a very personal buildup with some great puns being thrown out , Cena’s a better talker than Enzo! Watch this match, highly recommended!   151_NM_09242017hm_2339--c4d15c8571ec27aefa52866359d0e108  Results: Roman Reigns! Roman beat John Cena!  Did Cena just retire? He stayed in the ring and took a bow before leaving in a dramatic way.

WWE Cruiserwight Championship Match- Neville is set to defend his title versus new cruiserweight Enzo Amore! This match was ok, to be honest I didn’t pay that much attention.   171_NM_09242017rf_4627--9df54e317fdec1d05639b7403283d156  Results: Enzo wins! The new Cruiserweight champion and his first title!

WWE Universal Championship Match- The Champion Brock Lesner sets to battle Braun Strowman. This feud waswhat the WWE Universe wanted to see since Braun first challenged the Beast after Wrestlemania. I was excited that the match wasn’t 2 minutes like Goldberg and Brock’s matches. As expeted, this was the most physical match of the night and it was truly awesome.   191_NM_09242017rf_5200--b985d4891e164b2ba869292a1be516d7  Results: Brock Lesner Retains????? I’m really upset. Honestly, WWE I have no words.

 

Highlights:

  • The outfits were really nice for this PPV. Sasha Banks always have new flashy outfits but Finn Balor’s colors were a cute Blue and Gray. Also, did anyone notice that Sehamus and Cesaro matched their wrestling attire as well as their cover ups? I quite like The Bar on their backsides lol
  • Excellent Execution of matches all night. The moves weren’t botched and everything just looked real put together in the matches. Of course there are a few slips here and there, but for the most part the performers were convincingly landing their moves!
  • Opening Packages– Part of the appeal of a PPV event is that you do not have to watch all of the episodes leading into the event. This is because the opening packages do a fantastic job of hitting on key points and lining up the match ahead. With the PPV being titled No Mercy, there was a great buildup of animosity in each match. The opening packages further amplified the match at hand.
  • Women’s Division Resurgence- I’ve expressed my love for the Women’s Division match earlier in the post. Honestly, if Smackdown has been killing the game in one area, it’s their Women’s Division. Raw has had a pretty stale division and the crazy this is that they have some of the top women in the game. This match proved that Women of Raw are stepping up their game, possibly in preparation for one of the greatest women in sports entertainment: Asuka!
  • WWE 2K18 Commercial- Listen, Snoop Dogg did a great job on promoting the WWE 2K18 match. I can’t even formulate words, take a look below!

Alright, that’s the recap of No Mercy! What do you think will happen on RAW tonight? Did any of the results surprise you? Why does Brock still have the title? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Great Balls of Fire Results!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the Great Balls of Fire ppv for the Raw brand. Let’s jump into the results of the night!

Bray Wyatt vs Seth Rollins– The opening match was Seth Rollins taking on Bray Wyatt. Bray and Seth had a pretty good battle up until the end where the ref was pulling Rollins off of Wyatt and Bray poked Seth in the eyes. Yup that was the ending and my husband lost to a ref on payroll and an eater of worlds who pulls a 3 Stooges lol. Results: Bray Wyatt Wins. gbof

Big Cass vs Enzo Amore – The feud between former tag team partners Big Cass and Enzo went to the ring. It was not a good match as all that happened was that Cass showed his dominance. It did, however, solidify Cass as a Heel and I think he will make a great opponent for monster amoung men Bruan Strowman. Results: Cass won of course.

Tag Team Ironman Match– The 1st tag team ironman match was good. It was 30 minutes of fighting to see who could win the mosts points by pinfall, submission or count out. The 1st pinfall came 16 seconds in when Sheamus and Cesaro tricked the Matt Hardy into thinking Cesaro was the legal man. That landed him a Brogue Kick straight to the face. It looked grim for the Hardyz as they were down 3-1 with about 10 minutes to go. Results: Sheamus and Cesaro retain with a count of 4-3 (they ran for the last 13 seconds lol).

Womens Championship– Alexa Bliss took on the Boss Sasha Banks. This was the best match to me so far in the event as the women weren’t holding any punches. Can I take a moment to say that Alexa Bliss is a great heel. She is one of the best heels in the WWE at the moment, just by the way she taunts people and the way she wrestles. Anyway on to the results. Results: Alexa Bliss retains by getting herself counted out (she didn’t want to get back in the ring with the Boos)… But wait… There’s More! Sasha didn’t let Alexa walk out scotch free with her title. The Boss chased her down and the end result was Alexa getting the Double knees from the announcers desk at the top of the ramp. 

Intercontinental Championship Match – The Miz took on Dean Ambrose fr the gazillionth time. I’m not faking as if I really paid attention to this match becuase I didn’t. It’s played out. Results: The Miz won which is what I wanted so that someone else can have a shot at the IC belt now maybe Finn Balor!).

miz

Ambulance Match– Probably my favorite match of the night. Braun Strowman took on Roman Reigns and they were not holding anything back. After destroying each other Braun won the match by moving out the way when reigns tried to Spear him into the ambulance. This is where it gets good. Reigns breaks out of the ambulance, beats up Strowman and drives away. Then the best thing happened, Roman looked like he started a Heel turn… Roman backed the ambulance into a trailer and left Braun in the crushed ambulance. Is this the heel turn that everyone wants? We shall see. Results: Technically Braun won.

Universal Championship Match- The main event was between Brock and Samoa Joe. I was upset at the outcome because now the Universal Title is going back in retirement. Results: Brock won. Sheesh I don’t like Joe but at least we would have seen the title more. This is the FIRST defense since Wrestlemania in April! Are you kidding me????   brock

That was the PPV event. I’m not going to lie, it was a little lackluster to me. Hopefully Raw will be better tonight. Did you watch the event? What were your favorite matches? Let’s talk WWE!
