WWE SummerSlam 2017 Review, Comments, Etc.

Tags

Well, that show happened. Much like NXT, it was a pretty mixed show – except NXT at least had mostly good matches whereas SummerSlam had a lot less than that. There was some good matches, but there was so much other crap that the good couldn’t make up for it. There was probably three really, really good matches, a couple other good ones, and a few moments that made me very happy – and that’s it. There was a lot of crap, and they really need to stop these four hour shows and two hour preshows. I can handle it for Mania, but in all other scenarios, no. There were thirteen matches – and you can trim out six of them and you’d actually have a good show here. But we had to sit through the other six.

The preshow doesn’t count towards the show itself, but I’ll still mention those matches today because it had title matches.

The Miztourage won against the Hardys and Jason Jordan in a match that happened. Hurray!

Neville regained the Cruiserweight Championship in a decent match against Akira Tozawa, however why the fuck did Tozawa win to begin with?

And finally, The Usos defeated The New Day in another great match to win back the WWE Blue World Tag Team Championship. This should’ve been on the main card.

The show opened with John Cena defeating Baron Corbin in an average match to continue to bury Baron Corbin for no reason outside of stupidity and FUCK DAVE MELTZER.

Rating: ** for Cena (***** for Baron though, fuck off Meltzer)

Natalya then defeated Naomi to win the WWE Blue Women’s Championship because WWE hates us. Not because Naomi lost but because Natalya won. And Carmella didn’t cash in so FML.

Rating: **1/2

Big Cass vs. Big Show was awful and should’ve opened the preshow. Fuck this match and fuck everyone who came up with it and put together.

Rating: DUD

Also, whomever decided to bitch out Rusev AGAIN against Orton in a Not-Actually-A-Match, go fuck yourself.

Rating: DUD

In the first main show good match of the night, Sasha Banks defeated Alexa Bliss to FINALLY win the WWE Women’s Championship for the first real time because those three other times don’t really count when you lose it right back three times. The match was good – not great, but good – but sometimes that doesn’t matter when the moment at the end is great. And Sasha finally got a big PPV win that she’s justly deserved for a long time. The best has her title, and let’s hope she keeps it for a legit title reign, turns heel and then beats Bayley’s ass too!

Rating: ***1/2

Finn Balor defeated Bray Wyatt as we all knew he would. Fun to see the demon again, don’t think he needed it to beat Bray. I mean, it was fine, but nothing exceptional.

Rating: ***

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus and Cesaro to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a really good match. My favorite part was Cesaro killing the beach ball because the fans were being such fucking marks for themselves again and being disrespectful as fuck and they got what they deserved. You paid a ton of money to go to SummerSlam, watch the fucking match. We didn’t turn on the show to watch the crowd throw a ball around like idiots. YOU ARE NOT THE SHOW. Why were you doing this during one of the good matches anyway? At least you could’ve done it during Cass vs. Show. Anyways, Ambrose and Rollins won and I hope they face the Revival when they’re back.

Rating: ***1/2

A.J. Styles defeated Kevin Owens to retain the WWE U.S. Championship in a good match. My only complaint was too much emphasis on ref bumps and BS like that.

Rating: ***1/2

Jinder Mahal pinned Shinsuke Nakamura clean to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship so FUCK THIS COMPANY.

Rating: **

And finally, Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, and Roman Reigns in a great match to retain the WWE Universal Championship. This match was about as great as you’d expect it to be. I don’t know if the stretcher spot was necessary but whatever.

Rating: ****

Overall, if you took out the six man tag, Cena/Corbin, Orton/Rusev, Naomi/Natalya, Cass vs. Show, and Mahal vs. Nakamura (And this is only on Mahal’s boring ass), you’d have a really good show I would say. It’s too bad all of that other crap was there to water it down.

Overall Grade: C+

NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III Review, Comments, Etc.

Well, that was an interesting show, I guess. I feel like I enjoyed four of the five matches, but the victors left a LOT to be desired. I can agree with only two winners.

The first match was Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade Cien Almas and this match was great. I’d probably even say it was match of the night. And while I was hoping for Gargano to win, I can at least agree with Almas winning. I’ve never been a fan of Almas even though I can still acknowledge he’s really good in the ring. If he could just get a character I could get into then things would be different.

Then, SAnitY defeated the Authors of Pain to win the NXT Tag Titles. The match was good, but SAnitY winning didn’t really make much sense. I feel like AOP was bitched out a little – we’ve seen them eat so much offense and still win but then they lost to whatever move they lost to tonight which didn’t seem like much of a finisher. Also, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish attacking SAnitY after doesn’t do too much for me because my ROH experience has never been that high.

Aleister Black and Hideo Itami then kicked the fuck out of each other in a really good match. Black won as expected.

Asuka retained against Ember in a really good match that Ember definitely should’ve won. There’s no real excuse for this – it’s somewhat unfair to Ember, the one who should be unseating Asuka for the belt, that they’re just going to wait to give the MYC winner a title match with Asuka and then have her win. Sigh.

And the only bad match was the main event. I didn’t care going in and I was bored, and then Drew won which is even worse. I don’t like Roode and he shouldn’t be champ, but Drew wasn’t the one who should have taken it. And Adam Cole coming out and attacking Drew – again, my ROH experience is minimal.

Overall, it was a weird show. Good wrestling, poor winners for the most part.

WWE SummerSlam 2017 Predictions, Comments, Etc.

I guess with this post, I’m celebrating three years of using this format for predictions posts – with the images and stuff. Why that matters? No one knows.  I’m looking through this card of TWELVE MATCHES and I see about one that I’m fully invested in, and a few others that I’m somewhat invested in. But for the most part, this show is all just a bunch of throwing shit against a wall to see what sticks. And they fucked a ton of stuff up this week. But we’ll get to that. This may be reminiscent of a WrestleMania CinemaSins like predictions post, because I may be that annoyed by it. I hope someone in WWE reads it as is just as much of a mark that they rant about this like the dumbass director of Kong Skull Island was today when CinemaSins sinned their movie. (Doesn’t understand comedy apparently.)

Big Show vs. Big Cass

Just like, why? Why is this a thing? Why is this on this card? Why do I care about Big Show vs. Big Cass with Enzo locked in a cage? Granted, I will say I liked what they did on Raw this week between them, but I still don’t care. I’m growing to hate all of them. I haven’t cared about Big Show since 2005, and his useless ass has become more annoying each time I see him now. Enzo I haven’t given a fuck about since he basically tried to get cheered while being quite the misogynist towards Lana in yet another god awful feud Rusev was dragged into. And it certainly hasn’t helped that his career path without Cass is basically nonexistent, and also with all of the shit he’s got happening backstage with strippers and some other bullshit, he can fuck off. He sounds like mini-Ryback. And Cass – well, Cass has cut a few good promos recently, I guess. But his in ring work has never done anything for me and, well, let’s just say that, in a world filled with Big Cass’s, be Seth Rollins.

Prediction: Big Cass

Randy Orton vs. Rusev

So after Rusev gets stuck with the bullshit Cena flag match, he’s stuck with Randy-Can’t-Beat-Jinder-Fucking-Mahal-Orton. Snore. I just wish that Rusev could get away from the xenophobic bullshit because then I could get behind him. I can’t get behind characters that are just there to get USA chants because it’s boring and also fuck that patriotic bullshit. Never rooting against people because they’re from a different country, WWE. I’m not one of those idiots. Can Rusev please win?

Prediction: Randy Orton

WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Akira Tozawa (c) vs. Neville


So tell me why in the fuck did Tozawa win the title on Raw? Neville has been champion since ROYAL RUMBLE and he’s been a very good one, and you take the belt off of him on Raw and NOT at SummerSlam? Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t SummerSlam SummerSlam? It is, right? Because I could’ve sworn SummerSlam was SummerSlam. This is the second biggest show of the year and you do this title change on Raw which you could’ve done AT SUMMERSLAM for a nice moment on what’s going to be a probably mediocre show. So now what – either Tozawa wins and again, it’s stupid because it doesn’t mean anything anymore because what could’ve been a big moment was wasted for a much smaller one six days prior. Or Neville wins and gets it back which is even more stupid.

Prediction: Akira Tozawa

WWE Blue Women’s Championship
Naomi (c) vs. Natalya


Have I told you guys that I barely care about Naomi and Natalya can just fuck off? Like, Natalya is the second worst option for a title match. So at best Natalya can say “Well at least I’m not Charlotte.” She isn’t much better, though. And I still don’t like Naomi much – if she had a non-bullshit finisher, a non-annoying as fuck entrance, didn’t do the most ineffective looking maneuver since Nikki Bella’s forearm, and didn’t make the title look stupid as hell like several people have before her, I’d probably be a full-fledged fan, but I can’t until that’s all fixed. I have no reason to believe that Natalya would win, but here’s to hoping Carmella saves us after.

Prediction: Naomi

John Cena vs. Baron Corbin

You know, until tonight I didn’t care too much about this match and even though I wanted Baron to win, I wasn’t going to be mad when Cena won because it didn’t matter. But now, well….Now WWE fucked up massively and had Corbin cash in and lose for NO REASON whatsoever. Seriously FUCK THIS COMPANY. Even if you’re dumb enough to not like Corbin, you still have to hate this because it’s a waste of MITB. Even if you’re stupid enough to be happy that Corbin’s not the champion, that briefcase could’ve went to one of five other guys that you do like. So now that we all know how dumb this was, we can all be just as enraged about this and all back Corbin. For on Sunday, WE ARE ALL BARON CORBIN. (Also whomever changed Corbin’s awesome theme – fuck you.) Hell, maybe now he will win. I guess I would like to believe that WWE isn’t dumb enough to have him cash in and lose and then lose to Cena on Sunday, but they were already dumb enough to have him cash in and lose.

Prediction: John Cena

Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt

Now I know a lot of people are mad that they spoiled that Finn would be the demon on Sunday…but come on, guys. You knew. WE ALL KNEW HE WOULD BE. Don’t be mad about that. That said, I am mad that they had a match on Monday just for Bray to set up a dumb way for us to know that he would be. It’s not that they spoiled it – because we knew that. It’s been a year, it’s SummerSlam, and WWE doesn’t care about “Big enough matches that are worth doing it.” They just want everything that can add to their show regardless of story. But, does ANYONE really think Balor NEEDS the demon to beat Bray Wyatt? Because I sure don’t.

Prediction: Finn Balor

WWE Blue World Tag Team Championship
(c) The New Day (c) vs. The Usos


Now this I have no problem with outside of the fact that I’ve seen it twice, but this should be great as usual. I’d really like the Usos to regain the titles, but I doubt it.

Prediction: The New Day

WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) Cesaro and Sheamus (c) vs. Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins


This is one of the matches I’m actually looking forward to, because I’ve been enjoying what they’ve been doing with Rollins and Ambrose. It’s one of few bright spots in the company right now. And since Sheamus is leaving to do a movie, and it’d be completely pointless to do all of this with Ambrose and Rollins for them not to win the titles, even if it’s brief. If this gets Sheamus away from Cesaro and eventually gets Ambrose to turn on Rollins, this will be great.

Prediction: Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins

WWE Women’s Championship
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Sasha Banks


I have a few things to say about this. First, what were you playing at, originally having Bayley get the title match at SummerSlam instead of Sasha when Sasha was screwed out of her title match at GBOF? Like, I get it would lead to a future heel turn – at least I hope it would – for Sasha, but still. Like, logical story progression, please. And you buried the hell out of Bayley in the past few months – you can’t act like you don’t know that. And now Bayley’s injured because she was put in a match with Nia that she would NOT have been in had she not been #1 contender, so because you couldn’t just have logical storyline progression, now Bayley’s hurt and you had to go with what you should’ve to begin with. So GOOD JOB WWE – Bayley’s injury is on you. That being said, I’d be more into this match if I had belief that Sasha was going to win – and I’m not 100% positive she won’t – but I’m less positive than I was that Bayley would regain the belt. This is probably one of the tougher matches to call because I thought Bayley would win – and I think it’s time for Alexa to drop the belt. And they could still make a heel turn story for Sasha work from this somewhere down the line too. I’m just not exactly sure. Can I, as a huge Sasha Banks fun, just get one big moment for her on PPV because WWE fucked up all of the other ones, and she’s justly deserved to have a big moment for a long time. I know she’s won the belt three times from Charlotte, but it’s still like she never even won the belt once because she never had a successful title defense. It’s like she’s never been champion at all to be honest.

Prediction: Alexa Bliss

WWE U.S. Championship
A.J. Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens


This should be a good match but I’m just not into it. Their last PPV match was weird and we got it again in between that and this. A.J.’s going to win and this feud will end.

Prediction: A.J. Styles

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura


Well, I’m happy Shinsuke’s getting a title match but Jinder is just so boring. The title reign has been a bomb. That said, even I think that maybe it’s too early for Shinsuke to win the belt, but I can’t get excited for Smackdown with Jinder as champ. Maybe if they hadn’t had Baron lose the MITB shot we’d solve this dilemma, but, oops…. I’m sorry to say, guys, but I don’t think Nakamura is winning the belt. He might win, but by DQ. Or there will be some other bullshit.

Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura by DQ

Fatal 4-Way for the WWE Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Samoa Joe vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns


Now this I am definitely looking forward to. I’m happy they made this main event. Now, they kind of spoiled it with the “If Brock loses he’s going to leave” which is annoying. Because that basically guarantees he’s keeping the belt – unless he’s actually going to do some more UFC bullshit. But honestly I’m just hoping Samoa Joe or Braun Strowman win because Raw needs a full time champion and Joe and Strowman are both great choices for that.

Prediction: Brock Lesnar

Anyways, review on Sunday as always.

NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III Predictions, Comments, Etc.

Tags


I don’t know – I’m really indifferent to all three brands of WWE right now, especially with a ton of stupid that WWE has done just in the past two nights. But that will get saved for the SummerSlam predictions. Still, they had way too much time between the last Takeover show and this one, and I just don’t care. NXT is nowhere near what it used to be – and while Takeovers are still better than anything Raw does, they come few and far between. And most of the guys I care about on NXT aren’t there anymore or are injured. And this, Brooklyn, is NXT’s “WrestleMania” takeover. And I don’t give a single fuck about almost any of it. And the stuff that I do, I only give half of a fuck. We’re going into this show half-fucked.

Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade Cien Almas

This is one of three matches that I half care about, and it’s only because of Johnny Gargano. I’ve never been able to get behind Andrade. It’s not even a “He’s bad” kind of thing because he’s certainly good. But I’ve never been able to care about him – they need to find something for him that works otherwise I’m never going to have any interest in him. Obviously now the end goal for Gargano is a feud with Ciampa but since Ciampa’s going to be out a long time, this match won’t have any real bearing on it.

Prediction: Johnny Gargano

Aleister Black vs. Hideo Itami

This is the closest to full caring I have on this show, probably. That or the women’s title. Aleister should honestly be the one going for the NXT Title on this show. And honestly Hideo should be the champion BECAUSE HE SHOULD HAVE WON IT IN CHICAGO. Unforgivable, much like the crowd that night. Bunch of fucking marks. Anyways. This should be fun – Itami should probably win but I doubt he will.

Prediction: Aleister Black

NXT World Tag Team Championship
(c) The Authors of Pain (c) vs. SAnitY


So this is what we get now that the Revival and Alpha are gone and DIY is split. Snore. I mean, it’s better than Heavy Machinery I guess. But I don’t really care about AOP and I really don’t know where I stand with SAnitY. I feel like it it was Young and Wolfe I’d care, but Killian Dain can fuck off. From watching the G1 Finals Friday, he looks like he’s just a War Machine member wannabe but nowhere near as good. And they’re all heels – so who am I supposed to root for?

Prediction: The Authors of Pain

NXT Women’s Championship
Asuka (c) vs. Ember Moon


Okay, guys, it’s time. Asuka needs to lose the belt now. She’s had it for 500 days, I think we can be pleased with that. There’s nothing more you can do with Asuka other than have her lose. Her character can’t have a further story with the belt. She can only say no one’s ready for her for so long. The story needs to change. Ideally Ember would have had more character development, but there’s only so much you can do when she’s injured and it’s their own fault they didn’t do anything with her for ages. And it’s too bad that Solar Eclipse that’s happening next Monday wasn’t on Saturday, because that would be a pretty cool thing to integrate into Ember’s persona. Her finisher could be more powerful because of an actual eclipse that’s happening. But that’s too Lucha Underground-esque and thus too cool for WWE to do. There needs to be a title change on this show – and honestly it’s got to be this one because the other two aren’t changing.

Prediction: Ember Moon

NXT World Heavyweight Championship
Bobby Roode (c) vs. Drew McIntyre


SNORE. Bobby Roode is boring as fuck and he needs to lose the title but I don’t give a fuck about Drew so I DON’T EVEN CARE WHO WINS. When I said wake me when you have a champ who isn’t boring, I didn’t mean put it on McIntyre! Put it on someone I care about. To be fair most of the people in NXT I care about are female so I guess they don’t have many options, but Aleister Black! Johnny Gargano! And I guess Roderick Strong? Wake me when there’s a reason to care GOD DAMNIT DREW’S THEME JUST PLAYED ON MY PHONE.

Prediction: Bobby Roode

Anyways, review on Saturday, now time to drudge through SummerSlam predictions.

Whataboutism is a Hell of a Drug

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been in the business of ranting about the Bellas – most of that goes to Charlotte these days, but it appears I am coming out of retirement. This time, however, will be a little different. It’s going to be a response to another person’s post.

Now, before I get to it it, I’d be remiss if I didn’t first direct you to the Bella rant to end all Bella rant: https://mzrc.wordpress.com/2015/09/14/bellageddon-everything-wrong-with-nikki-bellas-title-reign-of-doomtm/

Some of my response to this post is probably already in that and I don’t want to repeat myself when I can just direct you to that beforehand.

So, what I’m responding to is, in fact, a response to a fellow TWITWOW listener, Asia’s tumblr post, found here: https://asias4life.tumblr.com/post/163276054747/this-is-my-pipebombshell-for-the-bella-army-i/amp

And after you’ve read that, the response that I am replying to is found here, from Tumblr user Nikkisflair: http://nikkisflair.tumblr.com/post/163290039671/just-another-bella-defense-post-because-im-tired/amp

Now, I’ve only read part of this post so far, and I’m going to respond to it now as I read it. I’m not used to seeing well thought out responses by Bella fans, so when I started to read this, I felt like it deserved a response. Most things of this nature by Bella fans I see are nonsensical garbage, so I wanted to at least respond to the ones that aren’t. Good to know that there are intelligent Bella fans, even though they’re few and far between.

So, I’m going to respond to points in here, but I likely won’t respond to everything – just what needs to be touched upon. Italics are from Nikkisflair’s post.

Ok, you didn’t word it as “The Bellas can’t wrestle” but that’s what you were implying, otherwise why would even bring them up as an example in the same category as Eva Marie?

She brought them up together because of being part of Total Divas together. Also, you miss the point where she said several times that they improved – and since you can’t improve from “can’t wrestle” to “can’t wrestle” so no, she was not implying that.

You say Vince wants them because they are model-like, then why would he want to fire Summer who posed on Maxim and is trying to get a spot on Sports Illustrated?

Where are these Summer release rumors? I have never heard of them once. If they’re from a year ago, then well, the Maxim stuff was this year was it not?

They built an empire

Within the WWE world.

they are the most mainstream women they’ve ever had

Trish, Lita, A.J……Just because they have a show on E! doesn’t make them mainstream. When people talk about shows on tv – how many times is that show on E? Most shows I know of that a lot of people talk about, it’s on Netflix, HBO, or AMC. Sometimes NBC or Fox or CW. Not E.

featured on two reality shows

When one show is the Bellas and other people and the other is just the Bellas, is it really two shows? I mean, yes, technically – but they’re the same show, just not. I mean, I’ll give you that they clearly draw more than the other girls on Total Divas, but what does that get them? Okay, so more random people who watch the E network like them because they’re like your typical reality show people, and they don’t like the others as much. I wonder if perhaps the E fans like reality show type people more than they like wrestlers/wrestling. Because that appears to be the case here.

Like it or not the Bellas are popular and have a huge following that goes beyond WWE

No one is questioning that, this is true.

something that other girls are not able to provide

But are certainly capable of it if WWE decided to promote them that way.

They sell almost double merch as Sasha does, and that’s saying a lot considering Sasha is basically the queen of merchandise. I thought a “Smart Wrestling Fan” was supposed to understand how business work…

Again, true. However, a smart wrestling fan ALSO knows that it’s extremely easy to be top merch seller when the Bellas have at multiple times in the past have had upward of 5-10 merch items up for sale on their website, and since a ton of their fans are young kids who just have to have every piece of merch and will beg their parents to buy it for them until they do, and at the same time, all of the other women had two shirts AT BEST, you can easily come to the conclusion that OF COURSE they sell more merch than everyone else.

They were smart enough to capitalize on their success and turn it into money. Nikki’s wedding will probably get more attention than a regular PPV because her and her sister and marketing masterminds and secured a future for themselves

And why as wrestling fans should we be happy that someone’s wedding will get more attention than a wrestling PPV. True or not, that’s not relevant. And honestly quite sad if true.

create their own empire.

Again, within WWE and E. When you actually get to mainstream mainstream, no one knows who the Bellas are. They do not have an “empire” – it’s just a wrestling fanbase combined with people enjoy trashy reality tv – not exactly quality people.

WWE wasn’t their first choice, I’ll never disagree with you on that and who says the contrary probably doesn’t know much about those two. But so what??

This is completely fair.

They also never miss the chance to talk about the other women in a positive light, no matter if it’s during an interview, a podcast, on Instagram, Twitter, etc… even when they don’t have to.

Unless the person’s name is AJ Lee.

They began in 2007, but do you want to know why it took them so long to improve and why there’s such a huge difference between them and Sasha? Sasha was trained as a WRESTLER first in the indies and then under Sara Del Rey. They were trained in FCW, where the trainers had different routines for the girls, they did not want them to be proper wrestler that’s why they were taught the most basic moves and that’s why most girls from that era were not as exciting as today’s girl. Plenty of people confirmed that and said girls were simply not allowed to be or to get good. 

This is a completely fair point. That doesn’t excuse them for being bad at the stuff they were supposed to do, though.

In this climate GAIL KIM AND MICKIE JAMES had a horrible, awful match, so do you really think that you can blame the Bellas for how they were performing at the time

Having a three minute match sucks but it doesn’t excuse them for performing poorly in the time they did have. Do your best and keep improving or don’t come. If your performance is affect by the amount of time you get, then you’re not going to get any better.

And you can hardly blame them for Total Divas

We don’t, but they could’ve at least not cost their “friends” Maryse, Maria, and Kelly contracts at the same time. Because, you know, that happened. And then when Maria talked about it their father tried to call Maria to tell her to not talk about it because they can’t fight their own battles that THEY started.

People like Naomi benefitted a lot from TD, because she was finally allowed to show her personality outside of being “Black Dancer #1″ and her fanbase grew exponentially. Hell, I didn’t care about her before TD and now she’s among my favorites

Should I go into a Naomi rant too? Because she’s not that great either.

They were finally allowed to be something more than twins, developed their own personas and each created a different moveset, Nikki being more power-based and Brie using her agility

What new personas? Is screaming “Come on Nikki” and “Brie mode” a persona? Is it your own persona when all you do is your husband’s moves or develop a moveset that emulates your boyfriend’s? Because nothing about their movesets were unique enough to call them “theirs.”

They got over and Brie’s program with Stephanie was actually one of the best written storylines of the last years with the crowd invested in it, it got both women over and Nikki’s heel turn was perfectly executed. Unfortunately after that they completely ruined the Bella vs Bella feud and Brie turned heel without any explanation, but they don’t book themselves

Best written? Eh, maybe. Although it screamed for a babyface that can talk like A.J. and not Brie so it could’ve actually been really great. Perfectly executed so much that we all knew it was coming, but that’s fine. The Bella vs. Bella feud ruined itself by existing to begin with. “I wish you died in the womb” killed it. Thank God for the fast forward button.

Now, to their wrestling ability. If you really are as open minded as your bio suggest I ask you watch these videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0vTiMB48mE, (ignore the title, it’s clickbait) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBTpGaoaJdk

^This guys analyses their wrestling abilities, psychology, selling etc and comes to the golden conclusion: people already have a certain perception that the Bellas are awful, so no amount of improvements or good matches will make them change their mind. I ask you again to watch the videos, with no prejudices, because he explains my point and their abilities perfectly.

How many good wrestlers do you know that have to have 25 minutes worth of videos made to prove they’re a good wrestler? Are there hours of videos trying to prove that Shawn Michaels is a good wrestler? Or Daniel Bryan? Or Kurt Angle or Eddie Guerrero? Because, well, they are good wrestlers – we know they are because they consistently have great matches – and I don’t need 25 minutes of videos to prove that.

However, I will agree that when people already have a certain perception about people, it’s hard to make a second impression no matter how much they improve/how many good matches they have. That’s fair. However, while they have improved, it’s not as much as you think they have apparently, and I can count the number of good matches they’ve had on two hands, if you’re lucky. But we’re going to chalk that second part up to WWE because, again, most of their time was when WWE gave 0 shits about women’s wrestling.

Nikki’s moveset is actually really cool and it works for her, she’s added plenty of offense that highlights her strenghts. She has one of the best forearm smash in business (Nikkisawa!!) it’s vicious and it legit looks like it could knock you out. Her Alabama Slam is another example of this. And the Rack Attack was perfect for her, but had to quit it unfortunately

Not really. Her forearm was pathetic and I bought it zero times when they tried to play it off as devastating.

Brie’s is a bit more lacking and she just ended up adapting Daniel’s moves, but it works for her as well. She was acknowledged as Daniel’s wife on TV, everybody knows, so there’s nothing wrong with getting a bit of a cheap pop with some Yes Kicks. And her Yes Lock was p e r f e c t, her missile dropkick looks amazing. I feel Nikki is the better wrestler of the two, but Brie just had less chances to show it always being the fall girl. 

And yet you said earlier about how she developed her own persona. Spacing out the letters in a word doesn’t make it true, either. Her missile dropkick isn’t that special and will forever be known as something that inexplicably pinned Becky Lynch once even though NO ONE LOSES TO A MISSILE FUCKING DROPKICK. (It seriously hadn’t happened since Survivor Series 2002.)

Natalya is the better wrestler among them, no doubt about that, but she has ages of experience on her back so it’s not really a fair comparison. Naomi is amazing, she incorporated her athleticism in her repertoire and is very creative, always busting out some new offense, but that’s unique to her.

Do I need to go into a Natalya rant as well as a Naomi rant? Seems like someone thinks that the women on Total Divas are all spectacular even though, well, not so much.

And do you really want to use Paige as an example…? I like her, I really do, but her main roster run was a mess. She got lazy and her move sets consisted of knee strikes, screams and headbutts, while Nikki and Brie always bring some new move. (And I’m hard on her because her NXT work was so much better= This just shows how biased you are towards them. If you don’t enjoy them or their styles it’s perfectly fine, but don’t use stupid excuses please. Because the logic you are applying to the Bellas could be applied to some of the girls you were defending and I don’t see you doing that 🙂 

Well, it was a bit of a mess, but that’s what happens when you’re constantly buried for seven months by the Bellas because Vince is too busy with his hard on for erasing people from history books that they didn’t care about storytelling and that Paige should have won the title on multiple occasions from them during that title reign because Nikki literally had nothing left to do with it. (And, in fact, she had won the title – let us not forget that when she pinned Brie in disguise at MITB 2015 that the ref counted the pin, the bell rang, and Paige was declared the winner. Just because Brie then showed the ref that she was Brie does not change that. The ref never physically restarted the match so when Nikki did whatever it was that she did and pinned Paige, she was doing so for funsies and Paige was actually the champ. But WWE doesn’t want you to remember that.)

Also, are we really calling Paige lazy? You realize how laughable that is, correct? That’s just bias.

You want to complain about character, but there are really no great characters nowadays. Sasha’s character work in NXT was GOAT (I consider her to be one of best at this, she just gets it) but what exactly is her character on the main roster? They stripped her of everything “Boss” but the name, turning the once fierce Legit tough girl of NXT into a whiny little girl that cries about her childhood dreams and can’t win on PPV. What’s Becky’s character besides being an underdog that likes steampunk? Summer? Emma? Dana? Nattie is basically female Bret Hart without the success. Once again you are blaming the Bellas for something that happens to every girl. The girls on the main roster are given no chances to actually develop and show their character besides few glimpses.

I see what you did here. You tried to make it sound like it’s okay that the Bellas have no character because all of the other girls have none either. No, that’s not the case. This is called Whataboutism – something that conveniently was tweeted into my Twitter timeline today.

That is what you are doing. See, the Bellas and Charlotte both have no character. (And others, but this is my example.) But, if I’m writing a post about the Bellas having no character, I don’t ALSO have to make the same post about Charlotte too just because it happens to be true. This is about the Bellas and about the Bellas it shall remain.

(The Bella Booty shake is iconic, leave it alone!)

Um, what about it is iconic?

And if you want to blame the Bellas for their face/heel swaps I would like to see you do the same for Alicia Fox, because she was in the same situation changing sides more than I change underwear. Do you know who else is a victim of this? Big Show. And do you know who’s to blame? Bad booking.

Ok, so the thing here is that the face/heel swaps are NOT actually face turns and heel turns. The Big Show thing was actually constant turns. Nikki and Brie while heels constantly tried to get themselves over as faces or acted like they were the faces WHILE THEY WERE HEELS. They’re heels, and perhaps if they committed to actually being heels and did good heel work, they’d be respected for being that. But they didn’t.

And despite having Cena on their side their booking has been horrendous almost all the time. Nikki had to stand there and listen while AJ insulted and slut shamed her week in week out, without ever having the chance to fire back. She did once and her promo got cut because AJ got upset.

Their booking being horrendous in terms of what they go out there and do is not something Cena being on their side would help. Cena being on their side helped them have those spots on the show but what they do is still shit. Also, blaming AJ for her character being booked to slut shame someone is comical when you’re telling us to blame booking for what the Bellas are doing but now we’re supposed to be mad that AJ, who was told to, slut shamed them. Also, her promo didn’t get cut because AJ got upset. Let’s not pretend that AJ had any kind of backstage power because she absolutely did not. She fought for everything she got and earned it.

at first Vince didn’t want girls on Total Divas to win the title (which is also one of the reasons AJ held onto the belt for so long and they had to call up Paige, because they had her bury the entire division and there were no more contenders).

The whole people on Total Divas couldn’t win a title was never true or they never would’ve won it all. A.J.’s title reign seemed in constant jeapordy of ending  because of their hard on for Total Divas and other backstage bullshit. And don’t pretend that AJ buried anyone because in no way is that true. Beating people isn’t “burying” them. And of course they called up Paige to have her win the belt from AJ – Paige was the only person worthy of ending such a historic title reign.

The Bellas are not the best the WWE has to offer, but they are good enough to be where they are. They were smart enough to turn themselves into superstars outside of WWE. I know many refuse to admit but they made their names mean something and are a huge attraction. Nikki’s queue at access was one of the longest, they have a HUGE social media followings, Nikki’s videos were among the most streamed in 2017 (she was the only girls on the list and ahead of Rollins, Owens, Balor, etc..), their merch is the always among the highest selling. They have a great business mind and were able to market themselves to a HUGE following, bigger than any other girl in the WWE.

I do firmly believe that over time the Bellas have earned their place in the company. However, they were put in a position they didn’t belong in for a long time. They earned the spot of beating the meaningless jobbers while losing to the stars, basically, because that’s about as good as they are. You remember how Triple H called Daniel Bryan a B+ player? Well the Bellas are C+/B- players. We talked about their merch already, no one cares about most streamed videos because meh, overhyping how much of an attraction they are based on that they have fans from a reality tv show – fans that don’t actually care about wrestling outside of maybe for them.

Little girls everywhere look up to them, so they must be doing something right.

Lots of young people choose poor role models because they don’t know any better. But I guess if they want to look up to mediocrity that’s their choice.

People can complain all they want about Nikki beating AJ’s reign, but regardless of the reasons it will not change the fact that giving the accolade to her was a good thing

In theory, you are right. In execution, this is not the case. If her title reign hadn’t been fraught with terrible matches, storylines, and just overall boredom, maybe that would be true. Maybe if AJ had left well before she’d won the title and not in the middle of it, it wouldn’t have been so obvious that they were doing it because AJ left. Fans aren’t going to be able to see past something WWE is doing when it happened so recently and that’s not Nikki’s fault.

If AJ hadn’t left it was quite clear that she was going to win the title back at Extreme Rules, but she left. And that’s where Nikki’s title reign fell off for everyone. Because that’s when everyone realized “Oh shit WWE has no idea what they’re doing with this” and just had more boring Nikki/Paige matches that ended the same with with some boring Naomi/Nikki stuff thrown in while everyone was just hoping for something to happen. And then the “revolution” happened but then we just had to wait while they spun their wheels so Nikki could break the record which we all knew she was going to.

But if that was going to lead to some kind of big payoff, they shouldn’t have done it the way they did. EVERYONE knew that Charlotte was going to win six days after Nikki broke the record and it meant absolutely nothing. If you want to use it for a payoff – have her break the record, and hold the title longer until they build up Charlotte (or Becky or Sasha because they are both infinitely better) so that when they win the title from Nikki, it’s a huge moment and not just some predictable finish to an awful title reign that everyone knew why it happened and how it would end.

because she walked out

CM Punk walked out. AJ retired. They are two very different things.

Oh, and in case you didn’t know, AJ was Vince’s favorite girl.

That will never be true no matter how many times you say it. Her title reign was constantly in jeopardy of ending while Nikki’s wasn’t.

He himself gave her the green light for the pipebomb (when the other girls were barely allowed to hold a mic) to bury the other girls and if she decided to come back she would be welcomed with open arms.  

Scripted promos are scripted. And would he, really?

Did you know that Nikki proposed to have a weekly open challenge for her title but WWE turned that down and gave it John Cena? Did you know Nikki always asked to get the Horsewomen called up to shake up the stale Divas division? Or that she was ALWAYS pushing for stipulation matches and more exciting stories?

No, because if they did we’d have heard about it previously. That kind of shit gets out to dirt sheets. They can say those things after the fact at convention Q+A’s but it’s easy to say things after the fact when you have no way to prove is true at the time.

Michelle McCool was rumored to be heavily favored by the bookers because of the Undertaker, where’s the hate for that? And were you backstage when she was getting heat for dating Taker?

Whataboutism again. Just because someone wrote a post about the Bellas that Michelle McCool is guilty of too, doesn’t mean someone needs to write a post about Michelle McCool to to make that post.

Do you know he’s as influent and powerful as Cena is?

Everyone knows that, stop being condescending.

So why would they fear Cena and but have no problem pissing off the most respected man in the locker room?

What?

Even CENA respects Taker and knows better than to mistreat him. Sounds stupid to me.Taker can end careers just as much as Cena can but once again this doesn’t fit the anti-Bellas agenda.

No, you’re just using whataboutism because you cannot dispute the original point.

And you can talk about the Bellas being able to get away with everything as much as you want but that doesn’t change the fact that they got pushed AFTER getting popular (Nikki started dating Cena in 2012, got the title in late 2014) were victims of bad booking just as much as everybody else (Where’s Nikki’s monster push?? And Brie was basically a jobber and an afterthought) and had to stand there and listen to people calling them plastic mannequins, telling them that they slept their way to the top, that they were not real wrestlers because of TD over and over again without a chance to fire back. (They did once and their promo got cut, even Cena got upset and defended Nikki on Twitter) Cena’s powers are legit lame if his politicking to get the Bellas pushed put them in this situation.

Again, they shouldn’t have cut her promo and it had nothing to do with AJ.

In conclusion. Do I think being John Cena’s girlfriend helped Nikki? Yes, it would be stupid to say otherwise. Is John Cena the sole reason the Bellas are where they are now? HELL NO! They worked hard and deserved their spot.

Deserved a spot, yes. Deserved the spot they got, no.

Wow, such a great wrestling fan you are downplaying an injury like that. NIKKI WAS ONE BAD BUMP AWAY FROM BEING PARALYZED! Neck injuries are no joke, Edge had to retire from that. Tyson Kidd ALMOST DIED because of a neck injury. So yeah, forgive us if we think the story of a girl who already has everything and could spend the rest of her days wiping her ass with money but she decided to put her health on the line AGAIN so that she can live her passion for a bit longer is exciting. Nikki came back with a FULL SCHEDULE when she didn’t need to, she got booked in plenty of physical fights, No DQ matches etc… Because she’s PASSIONATE ABOUT IT!
Brie had a C-SECTION two months ago and she’s already training to get back because she’s PASSIONATE ABOUT IT!

#PleaseLikeMySport

f you don’t like the Bellas that’s perfectly fine, we can’t all like the same things, but don’t spin your opinion into facts especially if most of your reasons to hate on the Bellas are the tired excuse

No one said you can’t like the Bellas but most all of what is said is completely valid, and now since you’ve heard it a lot your only defense is that “It’s tired” because it was true the first time and it’s true now.

them not being passionate, Cena, bad booking (that you conveniently don’t apply to other girls) and your own perception of their wrestling ability, comparing them to girls who were lucky enough to be treated as wrestlers and not some good looking clones.

I believe they are passionate. Cena is true. Bad booking is actually applied to other girls, the post just happened to be about the Bellas and again, one doesn’t need to post about all of the other examples to highlight one example. And the last point is valid.

Well, this has been fun. I’m happy that there’s at least one Bella fan out there that isn’t like the psycho dumpster fires I see on Twitter.

 

WWE Battleground 2017 Review, Comments, Etc.

Well that was terrible. I haven’t ranted in a review in a long time but we’re going to get into some shit here.

Now, the first and only good match on this show was The New Day defeating The Usos to win the WWE Blue World Tag Team Championship. This was really good, and I would recommend checking it out and then turning off the ppv entirely. Still, I would’ve preferred the Usos to retain, but it was great.

Rating: ***1/2

Baron Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura was fine, but it ended in a DQ so it’s not really notable.

Rating: **

The Women’s Fatal 5-Way happened next and it was pretty boring, sadly. But that is the state of the women’s division on Smackdown. It was a lot of Tamina and Lana teaming up on Charlotte but since I give zero fucks about Tamina and Lana and despise Charlotte, I was just hoping for a meteor. Then I was scared that Becky would inexplicably be bitched out AGAIN and be eliminated first even though she’s the only good person in the match. Thankfully she tapped out Tamina and Lana before promptly being bitched out by Natalya AGAIN. And then they stuck us with the two worst in the match, Charlotte and Natalya, because they hate us. And surprisingly Natalya won and unsurprisingly, no one cared.

Rating: **

Kevin Owens then defeated AJ Styles randomly to regain the US Championship. I’ll be honest – the match wasn’t bad or anything – but still, I wasn’t into this at all. I wish I could say I enjoyed it, but I just didn’t care. And the finish was dumb – why exactly did Owens win it back, too?

Rating: **1/2

And the first of two absolute atrocities on this show – the Flag Match between Rusev and Cena. This isn’t going to be a knock on either Rusev or Cena – they did the best they could. But this whole concept was dumb as fuck. Taking down the flag and then bringing it up the stairs at the top of the ramp is stupid. Ok, first off – Rusev’s flag is farther from the finish line than Cena’s is. THAT IS UNFAIR AS FUCK. Rusev shouldn’t have to go an extra length of the ring to win than Cena does. Hypocritical American bullshit – always having to have an upper hand. So that makes Rusev the babyface automatically. Also if Cena’s the face he lets Rusev win because what Rusev says about this country is true, and also faces don’t fall to xenophobic bullshit. Anyways – the logic in this is quite stupid. Literally the second Rusev took his flag down, he should be getting out of the ring and running like fuck to his flagpole. You don’t take a second to wave the flag. You don’t get in the ring and let Cena hit you. YOU GET THE FLAG AND RUN. Then when Cena has his flag down, take his flag and throw it javelin style into the crowd behind the announce tables. Make it impossible for him to get the flag and place it where he needs to before you can. Fuck, burn his flag so he doesn’t have a flag to place at all, and get massive heel heat from the xenophobic assholes in the crowd. Come on. But it was just some paint by numbers bullshit and you knew exactly how it would end when Rusev set those tables up.

Rating: DUD

Sami Zayn beat Mike Kanellis in a nothing match because 50/50 booking.

Rating: **

And finally, Jinder Mahal beat Randy Orton in a boring as fuck Punjabi Prison match to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. It was boring as fuck. The only enjoyable part was the Singh Bro that went through the announce table. And seriously, Khali?? KILL ME.

Rating: DUD

Seriously just watch the tag title match and burn the rest of this show.

WWE Battleground 2017 Predictions, Comments, Etc.

Well I’d say I’m excited for two thirds of this show. But of course, I don’t give a single shit about the two main matches on this show. Because instead of just one bullshit anti-USA feud, now there’s two. AND I DON’T GIVE A FUCK. FUCK YOUR PATRIOTISM. PATRIOTISM IS FOR DOUCHEBAGS. Living in the U.S. is nothing to be proud of these days so stop pretending it is. And we’re getting the first one out of the way now.

Flag Match
John Cena vs. Rusev


A few things. Who cares about flag matches? Who cares about this match AGAIN unless Rusev is going to win? Also, again with the bogus patriotism – stop pretending that a foreign person is a heel for being foreign. Stop pretending that Rusev’s this heel trashing America that we need to take down. WHAT RUSEV SAYS IS TRUE. America is basically shit these days. Our country is controlled by fucktards who were only elected because of Russian influence and ignorance (to put it nicely) and they won’t rest until they kill us all and this company’s owner is friends with him to the point where his wife got a position in his cabinet. And we’re supposed to believe that this company stands for what Cena says? L-O-FUCKING-L. So the next time you want to do something like this, the face had better start talking about how the enemies are within the walls of our government and that we’d better fucking resist. Because in this instance, John Cena is the heel, and Rusev is the face. End of. I’m sorry, Rusev, and all wrestlers of non-American descent – you deserve so much better than this bullshit trope that far too many ignorant fucktards fall for in this country.

Prediction: John Cena

Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match to Determine the #1 Contender for the WWE Blue Women’s Championship
Becky Lynch vs. Tamina vs. Lana vs. Natalya vs. Charlotte


First off, why is Naomi not defending and losing the title on this show? Because fuck that. And why are all of the options here trash and Becky? Like, if Becky doesn’t win – and she’s not gonna – we’re literally getting a dumpster fire as the winner. AND GUESS WHAT? WE’RE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO GET THE BIGGEST DUMPSTER FIRE OF THEM ALL AS THE WINNER! Because when you make me root for Naomi, you know you’re garbage.

Prediction: Charlotte

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin

Very much looking forward to this and I just hope Baron wins.

Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura

WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) The Usos (c) vs. The New Day


We already saw how good this was at MITB and I’m sure this will be better.

Prediction: The New Day

WWE U.S. Championship
(c) A.J. Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens


This match sells itself.

Prediction: A.J. Styles

Punjabi Prison Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WWE THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO BRING THE PUNJABI PRISON BACK HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
This match happened twice and it was awful and no one in the arena can see a thing and I can attest because I saw the last one that happened live and it was fucking awful and so will this.

Prediction: Jinder Mahal
