WWE Clash of Champions 2017 Review, Comments, Etc.

So, after that PPV, I think we can all agree that at least WWE didn’t fuck up today. And overall, not a bad show, but nothing we’re really going to remember in a few months.

The first match saw Dolph Ziggler inexplicably win the United States Championship from Baron Corbin in a triple threat match between them and Bobby Roode. It wasn’t a bad match by any means but it was about everything I expected. Hell, I expected the Zigzag during the End of Days spot that happened during Baron/Dolph/Styles at the Wild Card Finals last year and that was the finish. So, yea.

Rating: **1/2

Next was the best match of the night – The Usos defending the tag titles against the New Day, Benjamin and Gable, and Rusev Day. Happy Rusev Day to all, by the way. This match was great, to no one’s surprise. This Rusev Day thing has actually made me a fan of Rusev, so that’s good. Also Chad Gable is a beast and he needs to be a singles wrestler immediately. The Usos retained and you should watch this match.

Rating: ***1/2

Charlotte defeated Natalya to retain the Women’s in a trash match.

Rating: *

The Bludgeon Brothers squashed Breezango for fun.

Rating: N/A

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defeated Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura in a meh match. It was what it was. It was really just a bunch of waiting for Shane and D Bry to be at odds as refs because you knew that was the finish and lo and behold, it was.

Rating: **1/2

And finally A.J. Styles retained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in probably Jinder Mahal’s best match. Now hopefully he’ll never get a world title shot again.

Rating: ***

Anyways, WWE didn’t fuck up – they kept the belt on A.J. – and the tag title match was great. That was really all you could hope for out of this PPV, so no harm done.

Overall Grade: C

Well it’s finally the last PPV of this year and let’s just breeze through this. There’s nothing interesting about this PPV – it’s really just “Is WWE gonna fuck us all over and put the belt back on Jinder?” And that’s it.

Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers

This match will be fun. I don’t know why it’s happening but it will be fun.

Prediction: The Bludgeon Brothers

Triple Threat Match for the WWE U.S. Championship
Baron Corbin (c) vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler


Why in the world is Dolph in this match?

Prediction: Baron Corbin

Lumberjack Match for the WWE Women’s Championship
Charlotte (c) vs. Natalya


If this match doesn’t lead to chaos and Carmella cashing in then just kill me.

Prediction: Carmella

Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match for the WWE World Tag Team Championship
(c) The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable vs. Rusev and Aiden English


This should be a lot of fun. Can’t see why the Usos would lose.

Prediction: The Usos

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura

This is a pointless feud because Owens and Zayn aren’t going to be fired and Shane is punishing them for not actually costing him a meaningless match.

Prediction: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
A.J. Styles (c) vs. Jinder Mahal

Don’t fuck us over again, WWE.

Prediction: A.J. Styles

Anyways, review Sunday. Joy.

WWE Survivor Series 2017 Review, Comments, Etc.

Tags

Well, while Takeover War Games was really good, Survivor Series was super average by comparison.

The Shield vs. The New Day opened the show, and this was one of the few highlights of the show. Still, it wasn’t quite as good as I would have hoped. I think this should have been elimination to make it more interesting. Also, why did they need a Super Triple Powerbomb to win?

Rating: ***1/2

The women’s elimination tag team match was all sorts of bad. First, why was Becky eliminated first? Why was Bayley eliminated second, and by Tamina? Why was I forced to sit through a bunch of Nia vs. Tamina bullshit? Why was the only good person on team Smackdown eliminated first? Why were Alicia and Naomi allowed in a ring together? Why doesn’t Naomi know that after she gets a pin, that she doesn’t need to put the person in a submission? Why would you ever expect me to believe Sasha could be eliminated by Natalya? Why do you think I didn’t want to see Asuka vs. Becky? I mean, Asuka was sole survivor so that didn’t get fucked up – so, uh, here’s a participation award I guess.

Rating: *

Miz vs. Baron Corbin was next and it was rather average as expected. Joy.

Rating: *1/2

The Usos vs. The Bar was next and it was another of very few highlights of this show. It was really good, and I’m very happy the Usos won.

Rating: ***1/2

Charlotte vs. Alexa Bliss was as average as the battle of the dumpster fire vs. extremely ordinary could be. And as much as Alexa is better than Charlotte, I’m still happy she tapped out like the exceptionally average and exceptionally overpushed mediocrity that she is.

Rating: **

Brock Lesnar defeated A.J. Styles in probably the exact match that you expected them to have. Good, but nothing you didn’t see coming.

Rating: ***

And finally, the men’s elimination match was also really average. Why was Shinsuke eliminated first? Why was it just so boring? Why am I supposed to believe Shane will eliminate three guys? Why do I care about Triple H betraying Kurt just so Triple H can get the win? Blah.

Rating: **1/2

Really it was just another blah show. Not really awful, but not good either. Shield vs. New Day and Usos vs. The Bar was the only good matches.

Overall Grade: C-

NXT Takeover: War Games Review, Comments, Etc.

Well that was a really good show. Outside of the first match, all of the matches were really good to great.

I wasn’t too excited about Lars Sullivan vs. Kassius Ohno, and I think it’s really just all that I don’t care about Ohno. Lars’s entrance was cool and I was into his offense, but that’s all I really have to say about it.

Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream was amazing. Even though Black won as expected, this was the night Velveteen Dream became a star. The crowd was chanting for him the entire night and while I didn’t quite get to the point where I thought he had a chance, we almost did. But I’m not surprised that even after the entire show, this was probably my favorite match just from how good both of these two men are.

The NXT Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way was next, and it was really good. My only gripe with a lot of NXT Women’s title matches these days is that I feel like they’re still just a little too short for me. I still want more of it. That said, it was still really good and I loved the Double Eclipse and Kairi’s Elbow drop is still the best and I love Peyton Royce and I really want her to be champ very soon, but I’m happy for Ember because she certainly deserves it. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NIKKI TUNE THE CRAZY THE FUCK DOWN.

Drew McIntyre vs. Andrade Cien Almas was very good. I loved it. I’ve heard that Drew got injured during this match and that the title change wasn’t supposed to happen, which makes sense considering I felt like the ending was a little weird. I wish it hadn’t happened this way, though. I wanted Drew to come up to the main roster, not get hurt. But, I guess since he tore a muscle, that’s a little better than the concussion I thought he got – long term anyway it’s better.

And finally, the War Games match. What more can I say about this match than it was pure insanity? It was great. I really don’t have much to say about the specifics about it other than that. I loved it.

Overall it was a really good show, and the real winners of the night were Velveteen Dream, Ember Moon, and Andrade Cien Almas. I’m very happy for them.

Moving on to Survivor Series, we have a bunch of interpromotional matches that WWE really wants you to believe means something when in reality there are ABSOLUTELY NO STAKES WHATSOEVER! WHY SHOULD I CARE IF ONE BRAND IS BEATING UP THE OTHER? I, the viewer, have no loyalty to either show. A year ago, I would’ve maybe pulled for Smackdown because a year ago Smackdown was really good, but now, both shows are super average. And neither brand gets anything for winning, so why should I give a shit? So, why not we make these matches mean something? How about the victors of each match get to draft someone from the loser’s show to the winner’s show? That way it would be worth paying attention to. That, and so many of these champion vs. champion matches make no sense because they’re heel vs heel. Fuck, we almost had Brock vs. Jinder and we just narrowly avoided that disaster. Now there’s actually a WWE Champion for the first time since May.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Enzo Amore (c) vs. Kalisto


Getting the rematch out of the way.

Prediction: Enzo Amore

WWE Intercontinental Champion vs. WWE U.S. Champion
The Miz (c) vs. Baron Corbin (c)


This has got to be the weirdest match on this card. I don’t even have any thoughts on it at all, to be honest.

Prediction: The Miz

WWE Women’s Champion vs. WWE Blue Women’s Champion
Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Charlotte (c)

Oh boy! The most overpushed female wrestler on Raw vs. the most overpushed female wrestler of all time in a match against each other!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!!! Please win Alexa just so I don’t have to see Charlotte win a match. And then drop Sasha’s title back to her already.

Prediction: Charlotte

Elimination Tag Team Match
Team Sasha (Sasha Banks, Asuka, Bayley, Alicia Fox, and Nia Jax)
VS
.
Team Becky (Becky Lynch, Carmella, Naomi, Tamina, and Natalya)


You can pretend Alicia is the captain all you want but the captain is always the most talented on the team so Sasha it is. Also, why are we doing a TBD for team Smackdown when it’s just going to be Natalya? Anyways, Asuka is on team Sasha so team Sasha wins!

Prediction: Team Sasha

WWE World Tag Team Champions vs. WWE Blue World Tag Team Champions
(c) Sheamus and Cesaro (c) vs. (c) The Usos (c)


I’ll be honest, I was looking forward to Shield vs. Usos, but I’m looking forward to Shield vs. New Day too. Hopefully the Usos win.

Prediction: The Usos

The Shield vs. The New Day

This match is going to be great. I’m glad they decided to do this since it’s basically a dream match.I wish they did it when I could at least believe New Day had a chance of winning – not saying New Day HAS to win, but at the given time I know there isn’t even a chance of it.

Prediction: The Shield

Elimination Tag Team Match
Team Raw (Kurt Angle, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, and Triple H) VS.
Team Smackdown (Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, and John Cena)


This match is stacked! With old people! Still it’s star studded and also Bobby Roode is there so it should be fun. No way Raw loses either tag match. Also, Owens and Zayn are totally costing Smackdown the match.

Prediction: Team Raw

WWE Universal Champion vs. WWE World Heavyweight Champion
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. A.J. Styles
(c)

Imagine if this was still Brock vs. Jinder for a moment. LMAO. I wouldn’t have watched that trash. Anyways, Brock is obviously going to win but I wish A.J. would.

Prediction: Brock Lesnar

Anyways, review Sunday.

NXT Takeover: War Games Predictions, Comments, Etc.

It feels like forever since Takeover Brooklyn 3 happened. And I’ll be honest, I went on around a two month hiatus from watching NXT after that show. Not because that show was bad, but because I just didn’t really care enough to watch the weekly show. I read the spoilers of course, and later on I eventually went back and watched everything I cared about from the episodes I missed, but that’s about it. It’s been a long time since I cared about the weekly NXT show and I’m not really sure I’m ever going to again. Most of the talent we love NXT for is long since gone and I only care about some of the people who have replaced them. I think once they integrate more of the MYC talent into the women’s division and maybe once Ricochet finally shows up on NXT I’ll have people I care about – even though Ricochet’s attitude is shit. That’s not to say there aren’t people I like, but it’s not like I care about the whole roster anymore.

Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan

With that hiatus I mentioned, I really haven’t paid much attention to Lars Sullivan yet. I know he doesn’t like his tag team partners very much and beats the crap out of them. Meanwhile, I’m not really sure I’m that big a fan of Kassius either. I always assumed I would be going back to his first run in NXT because of everyone talking about him then, but I never watched it then. Now, I’m not really excited about it. So I guess I’m looking for both of them to show me something here.

Prediction: Lars Sullivan

Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream

Aleister Black is now easily one of my favorite parts of NXT – him and his entrance and his five minute long theme that only has two different verses over and over and over and over. That being said, if someone told me before I stopped watching for a month and a half that Velveteen Dream would become one of my favorite parts of NXT, I’d probably have called you insane. I don’t know what happened between the last time I saw Dream before Brooklyn 3 and the first segment between these two, but holy shit this feud has been amazing. I hear people say “Aleister could be doing so much better” or “they’re wasting Aleister Black on Velveteen Dream” and I just laugh at them hysterically. They’re both great. That being said, I can’t really foresee Dream winning – although I reckon it’s the better decision.

Prediction: Aleister Black

War Games Match
SAnitY vs. The Undisputed Era vs. Roderick Strong and the Authors of Pain


Now I would guess this is the main event, but I’m talking about it here. I’m not sure how to feel about this match. I know everyone has been calling for War Games for years and years and years and years and I’m like “Uh, ok.” I’ve never seen a War Games match so I don’t know the appeal. So there are two rings under a HIAC-like cage? Cool? I don’t really see the appeal. I know it’s kind of like TNA’s Lethal Lockdown (Or Lockdown is supposed to be like War Games in reality, but I’ve seen Lockdown so whatever) and I mean, it’s not much more than royal rumble multiman, multiteam tag team match with no escape/elimination. So there’s that – and I’m not hugely into any of these teams. I don’t dislike them, but I’m more indifferent than anything. I like SAnitY to a point, but they have no depth. They’re just kind of like these crazy mercenary type people and that’s it. I like them, but if they were gone, I wouldn’t care either. The Undisputed Era – bad name by the way – I haven’t seen enough of them for me to really care. Roderick Strong I like as much as SAnitY and Authors of Pain I can take or leave. So basically – I’m not really into anyone in this match at all, so I have no one really to pull for.

Prediction: The Undisputed Era

Fatal 4-Way for the Vacant NXT Women’s Championship
Ember Moon vs. Kairi Sane vs. Peyton Royce vs. Nikki Cross


This is the match I’m probably most looking forward to. I love Kairi and Ember and Peyton and I like Nikki so it’s no lose situation. This is the match I’m having the most difficulty predicting because I’m just not sure at all about what direction they’re going to go. I think Nikki is least likely, and Kairi is the next least likely. So it’s either Peyton or Ember, and I’m going to think they’re going to go with the heel route.

Prediction: Peyton Royce

NXT World Heavyweight Championship
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Andrade Cien Almas


After my hiatus from watching NXT, it’s not just Velveteen Dream who turned a corner with me, but Andrade Cien Almas has as well. I don’t know what it is now with him either, but whatever didn’t connect for him with me does now. And I am 100% behind him winning the title here because McIntyre doesn’t belong in NXT – he belongs on the main roster. However I’m unsure this will happen.

Prediction: Drew McIntyre

I’m definitely hyped for this show unlike Brooklyn 3. Review on Saturday.

WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs 2017 Review, Comments, Etc.

Tags

Well, after the changes to this card from the illness plaguing WWE, this show turned out to be a fairly decent show. I wouldn’t call it great or anything, but I don’t regret watching it, at least. There wasn’t really a bad match either, although the TLC match was weird.

The first match was Asuka vs. Emma, which was pretty good. It got more time than I thought it would, but I still wish it got more. But it wasn’t a squash. Regardless, it was good, Asuka didn’t lose, and probably the second best match on the show.

Rating: ***

Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann then defeated Jack Gallagher and Brian Kendrick in a decent match.

Rating: **1/2

Alexa Bliss then retained Sasha Banks’s WWE Women’s Championship against Mickie James in a decent match with a really dumb, out of nowhere finish.

Rating: **1/2

Enzo Amore then defeated Kalisto to regain the Cruiserweight Championship in an okay match. Keep the belt on Enzo for a while and whomever wins it off of him will be golden.

Rating: **

In what was easily the best match of the show, Finn Balor defeated A.J. Styles. This match was really good, although again, another match that I liked that could’ve been longer. I don’t really think the demon was needed still, although at least he wasn’t a pumpkin. I’m sure they saved plenty of stuff for a better match in a real feud.

Rating: ****

Jason Jordan beat Elias even though Elias clearly kicked out well before the count of 3.

Rating: **

And finally, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Kurt Angle defeated Miz-Bar-aun and Kane in a really weird TLC match. The Shield dominated the early part of the match until Ambrose and Rollins dove off ladders to put the big guys through the announce tables. That left the other three able to take out Angle, who inevitably got power slammed through a table by Braun and brought to the back. (Angle came out with the Shield down the steps and it turned out this whole thing was an excuse for Angle to have his own proper entrance much, much later.) Then all five of the heels took out Rollins and Ambrose for a while, giving me a horrible feeling that this was all going to be some kind of big ruse and Roman was going to comes save the day after all, but no. Kane accidentally hit Braun in the back with a chair but the Shield rallied before they could attack each other. And then shit got weird. Miz had everyone else drag the Shield to the top of the stage where he brought out a garbage truck because he earlier mentioned taking the shield to the dump after the match. They put the shield in the back of the garbage truck but they get out and dove on them all. Then Kane and Braun started fighting each other for no reason and Kane chokeslammed Braun through the stage and then piled the chairs that were hanging from the titantron on top of him because reasons. Then he chokeslammed both Rollins and Ambrose through tables. Or at least Rollins, because Ambrose just kind of bounced off of his which is the second time someone failed to put him through a table in this match. Braun then got up and went to attack everyone but then the heels put him in the garbage truck which took him away for reasons. Just none of that made sense. Anyways, eventually Angle comes back out, puts Cesaro and Sheamus through tables before almost making Miz tap, but it got broken up and then Miz took all the Shield finishers for the loss.

Rating: ***1/2

Overall I enjoyed the show despite the weird main event.

Overall grade: B-
