  1. A new champion was crown at Monday Night RAW. Finn Balor captured the United States Championship by defeating Damien Priest, but after the match Priest turned heel and assaulted Balor.
  2. Last night in the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship, Lashley was taken out of the match with a "kayfabe" concussion, but in reality Lashley was legitemately injured, back at the Royal Rumble. He has a shoulder injury which will require surgery and thus Lashley will miss WrestleMania 38. Reportedly, he will be out for at least four months.
  3. Haven't watch WWE for a long time, but it's WrestleMania season again and at this moment Elimination Chamber is LIVE, so I'll edit this post rapidly to follow the results of the PPV. Pre-Show: Rey Mysterio def. The Miz Main Card: Universal Champion Roman Reigns def. Goldberg Bianca Belair def. Alexa Bliss, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan, Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. Eliminations: 1. Nikki A.S.H. 2. Doudrop 3. Liv Morgan 4. Rhea Ripley 5. Alexa Bliss Naomi & Ronda Rousey def. Charlotte Flair & Sonya Deville Drew McIntyre def. Madcap Moss RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch def. Lita SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Viking Raiders never happened, because The Usos assaulted The Viking Raiders before the match Main Event: Brock Lesnar def. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, Riddle, AJ Styles and Austin Theory Eliminations: 1. Bobby Lashley was taken out of the match, because of a "kayfabe" concussion 2. Seth Rollins 3. Riddle 4. AJ Styles 5. Austin Theory
  4. Why ITF, it's ATP Australian Open.
  5. If you wonder, where is the RAW review. Well, I'm not making one, because RAW sucked and I'm not gonna punish myself watching it. SmackDown is still way more entertaining than the monday night shows.
  6. Little late for SmackDown, but oh well, let's go. Cena's promo addressing the crowd, show after show starts to get repetitive. It gets a little annoying and cringy to listen. But addressing Roman, yeah that's entertaining. Sasha Banks is back. She was away since WrestleMania 37, but now she's back. Reigns and Balor were supposed to sign their contract for SummerSlam, but shit happened. First Corbin attacked Balor, thus stopping him from signing the contract (guess who Balor will face as SS...). Then Corbin was about to sign the contract, but was attacked by Cena, who eventually signed it. So as I said, we'll get Reigns vs. Cena, was this whole segment was bad, so very bad. And I'm a Balor fan and I'm disappointed for how Balor was treated, because WWE gave me hope and then they took it away. They could've done this way much better. Bianca Belair & Sasha Banks vs. Carmella & Zelina Vega Belair and Banks won after Banks submit Carmella with the Bank Statement. After the match Banks attacked Belair resuming her heel gimmick.
  7. It's monday and you know what that means. It's time for Monday Night RAW. I get what they wanted to do in the opening segment, but it didn't work as planned. Nikki A.S.H. was confronted by Charlotte and the latter was confronted by Rhea Ripley. The segment was used to set up a Triple Threat Match for the RAW Women's Championship at SummerSlam between the women. As well as Charlotte challenging Nikki to a non-title match later in the show. The next match I thought it'll be for the US Championship, but then was announced it's just a contenders match which quickly lowered my interest for it. US Champion Sheamus vs. Damian Priest Priest won, so there's one more match for you for the SummerSlam card. Well, at least the next match is for a championship. RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos vs. The Viking Raiders Tag Team Match for the RAW Tag Team Championship Styles & Omos won so this is probably the end of their feud with The Viking Raiders McIntyre is so going to murder Jinder at SummerSlam and OMG I'm going to enjoy it. NXT Champion Karrion Kross vs. Keith Lee - Singles Match The burial of NXT stars continuous. Last week both Lee and Kross lost their matches and today they are set to face against each other. Despite who wins, it's very sad how Vince treats wrestlers from NXT. Kross won via submission. A quick squash match for Bobby Lashley against his former team mates - Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. Lashley is looking stronger than ever before. Amazing build. RAW Women's Champion Nikki A.S.H. vs. Charlotte - Singles Match As expected Charlotte won clean and assaulted Nikki post-match. We'll get a rematch next week, so it'll be interesting to see what will happen.
  8. Let's see what I think about this epsode of SmackDown. Yeah, you know I'm excited for Cena vs. Reigns and of course they'll tease a face-off at the start of the show, but they'll do it in the end. I'm happy Finn Balor is back on the main roster and I really hope, this time, he'll be used way more properly than the last time. For now, he is in a stupid feud with Sami Zayn, but at least the in-ring action should be good. Finn Balor vs. Sami Zayn - Singles Match Well at least Balor won clean, in contrast of the losses of Keith Lee and Karrion Kross on RAW. For now Corbin's new gimmick is golden, I like it, but I don't see it pan out very well. Actually his new gimmick is that he is poor and everyone is screwing with him and being jerks to him. It looks like there are two places from which SmackDown was broadcasted, as the second place was again in front of a live crowd, but the stage was made as it was a concert. SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella Singles Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship Predictable win for Belair in front of the concert like live crowd. Corbin's adventures continues. Now in the backstage he asked Owens for money, which Owens gave him. But immediately Corbin was attacked by Ziggler & Roode, but KO was there for the save. I'm questioning, is this storyline is used to turn Corbin face? Edge and Rollins did an amazing promo. Rollins is great on the microphone and the hype for this match is pretty real. Toni Storm debuted on the main roster from NXT, but I don't give a f*** for her. The feud between the Mysterios and The Usos continues, not excited at all for them. I love The Usos, but I just dislike the Mysterios. Somehow they don't click for me. Jimmy Uso vs. Dominik Mysterio - Singles Match Jimmy defeated Dominik, despite the win not being clean. I hope that's the end of this. I don't find this feud compelling and that's why it's not enjoyable for me. Hohoho, interesting, Reigns declined Cena's challenge, but was interrupted by Finn Balor. My first reaction was "hell yeah, I'd love to see Balor in the universal championship picture", but then I just realised that Reigns can beat him whenever and however he wants, because Balor is still not strongly booked and I know that in the end we'll get Reigns vs. Cena at SummerSlam, but still let's see what will happen. Balor challenged Reigns and he accepted, so probably on next week's smackdown, we'll get to see this match.
  9. RAW Review, no, no way. Let me just tell you the more interesting stuff, that happened. John Cena challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship and that match will happen at SummerSlam. Rhea Ripley invoked her rematch clause and she'll face Charlotte in the main event. Keith Lee returned and answered Lashley's open challenge. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Keith Lee - if Lee wins, he'll become the #1 Contender for the WWE Championship Lashley defeated Lee clean, pinning him after a Spear. Goldberg returned and confronted Lashley, challenging him for the WWE Championship. RAW Women's Champion Charlotte vs. Rhea Ripley Singles Match for the RAW Women's Championship In the main event, Rhea Ripley defeated Charlotte via DQ, after Charlotte hit Ripley with the belt. After the match, Ripley in her wrath attacked Charlotte and delivered her finisher - The Riptide. Nikki A.S.H. cashed-in her money in the bank briefcase and after a cross body, pinned Charlotte to become the NEW RAW Women's Champion.
  10. Money in the Bank 2021 Results Kick-Off: Rey & Dominik Mysterio © vs. The Usos The match got a classic tag team booking. The heels got an earlier advantage, but it was predictable to watch how the match was rolling. For sure I wasn't at the edge of my seat, even on the contrary I was lying on my bed. But as expected, near the end after Rey kicked-out of a finisher - Frog Splash, it was enough to get me to stand up. I felt the excitement and it's disappointing that these guys are on kick-off, because they deserve way much more. For sure, they got the crowd riled up, as we got a nice heel ending. Little sad, I got the first match wrong. Result: The Usos are the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions Match #1: Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Cross vs. Naomi vs. Liv Morgan vs. Asuka vs. Natalya vs. Zelina Vega vs. Tamina I don't know if it's only my opinion, but it'll be very logical if every time a wrestler finds himself alone in the ring to start climbing that ladder and do it fast. When you're alone in the ring and looking around, you're kind of ruining the illusion. Ok, nice, nice, they buried Bliss with ladders. Now let her do some magic trick and grab the case....but of course not (disappointing noises). Pretty lame finish, I'd say. It didn't even make me feel excited. The kick-off match was better than this (more disappointing noises). Well, at least she deserves it. Let's see if Cross will cash-in later. Result: Nikki Cross a.k.a. Nikki A.S.H. (almost a super hero) duh... Match #2: AJ Styles & Omos © vs. The Viking Raiders Not bad, not bad at all. I can't believe I saw Styles to be handled like that. Good, solid match and until Styles and Omos are on the same page, they're just not losing the titles. Finally, I got one right. Result: AJ Styles & Omos retain the RAW Tag Team Championship Match #3: Bobby Lashley © vs. Kofi Kingston Really wasn't expecting anything else. A brutal squash match, which personally I liked. It build Lashley to look like a monster, who could have ended the match whenever he wanted, but continued to punish Kingston. A strong message to anyone on the roster. Amazing job here WWE, amazing job. Result: Bobby Lashley retains the WWE Championship Match #4: Rhea Ripley © vs. Charlotte Well WWE do suprise me with their booking. The match started boring, for me, but then it got pretty good I'd say. The crowd elevated the match for sure. You know, after Charlotte failed to win twice, after using the ropes for levarage, and after the Natural Selection from the tope rope, you'd think Ripley may win at the end, but trolololol the laugh is for you, as she tapped out a few minutes later. Result: Charlotte wins the RAW Women's Championship Match #5: John Morrison vs. Ricochet vs. Big E vs. Riddle vs. King Nakamura vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens Carnage all over the place. But I fell asleep and I couldn't appreciate the match fully. But it's my mistake, because I watch the PPV on replay and I reach the point where I get bored and feel sleepy, so from now on I'll watch first the matches I'm most interested in and then the other boring stuffs. The match really was epic and delivered big. McIntyre was attacked by Jinder Mahal (lame, as this will be McIntyre's feud going into SummerSlam) and thus taken out of the match. As usual in the end, everyone tried to climb the ladder, just to be stopped by another wrestler, who hit his finisher and this repeats again and again 'till there's only one. Congratulations to Big E, really deserved the win after all this years. Probably will move to RAW and cash on Bobby and oh boy I can dig that SummerSlam match. Result: Big E wins the Men's Money in the Bank Briefcase Match #6: Roman Reigns © vs. Edge From the moment Edge's theme hit, you just know it's about to go down. And then Reigns' theme, OMG it is indeed the main event. An amazing old school match. Both had the upperhand at one point in the match, then both exchanged some hits. The referee was knocked down and Edge locked Reigns in the cross-face. Now I thought that Reigns would tap, but he didnt. The Usos came to the aid of Reigns, but they were stopped by the Mysterios. And out of nowhere Rollins emerged and stomped Edge in the head. Still after that, Edge had the upper-hand, delivered a Spear, but there was no referee to count the pin. One more interference from Rollins was needed for Reigns to deliver the Spear and make the pin. Result: Roman Reigns retains the Universal Championship But no, no, no, we have just a little bit more. Edge and Rollins brawled from the ring to the outside, so you know these two are having a match at SummerSlam. But just as Reigns celebrated, John "Freaking" Cena returned. The facial expression of Reigns was saying it all, like he knew his time as Head of the Table is near the end. John Cena is baaaaaaaaaaaaaack.
  11. OK, let's go. Money in the Bank 2021 Predictions. Just before beginning I want to mention that this will be the first PPV with full crowd since Elimination Chamber 2020. Here we go: Let's start with the big one - Roman Reigns © vs. Edge Singles Match for the Universal Championship Reigns' character is still hot and it's too soon to take the title off of him. Plus Edge is a part-timer and really I think, he doesn't have a chance at winning a big title at all. I hope WWE will come up with greater stories for Reigns in the future. And we also had that tap-out, which occured in the last SmackDown, where in a post-match assault Edge made Reigns to tap. So basically Edge doesn't stand a chance. Prediction: Roman Reigns retains Bobby Lashley © vs. Kofi Kingston Singles Match for the WWE Championship Why this s*** is happening? Oh, I get it - black vs. black, brilliant. I can't believe Lashley is still the champion, but good for him. I can't understand the reason why McIntyre lost a "Last Chance Match" and can't challenge for the title, which is kind of lame. But I tell you this, there is no way for Kingston to walk out as champion this sunday. Prediction: Bobby Lashley retains Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Cross vs. Naomi vs. Liv Morgan vs. Asuka vs. Natalya vs. Zelina Vega vs. Tamina Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match Lame, lame, lame, lame building for this match. There was somekind of a storyline going on around Liv Morgan, but then she was added to the match just like that. So as always, let's dismiss one by one. Natalya and Tamina have the lowest of chances to win it, so down they go. I also can't see Vega winning the match, so she's gone as well. The most logical think to happen is for Bliss to win the briefcase, I'm probably wrong, but I'll go with it. Prediction: Alexa Bliss John Morrison vs. Ricochet vs. Big E vs. Riddle vs. King Nakamura vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match OK then, let's see. Morrison, Ricochet and Riddle are in the match to do some crazy high-flying maneuvers. Nakamura is maybe the dark horse of the match, but I'm going to dismiss him. And we're left with Owens, McIntyre, Big E and Rollins. I'm also going to dismiss Owens and Big E, because they are on SmackDown and having a SmackDown winner going after Reigns is not a good idea. So it's only Rollins and McIntyre now. Yes, I know Rollins is on SmackDown and basically if he wins, we needs to go after Reigns as well, but this I'll dig it. On the other hand, we have McIntyre who can't challenge for the title, as long as Lashley is the champion, but with the briefcase, he could use it and challenge Lashley at SummerSlam and win the title in front of a cheering LIVE crowd. No matter who wins (Rollins or McIntyre), I'll be satisfied. Prediction: Drew McIntyre Rhea Ripley © vs. Charlotte Singles Match for the RAW Women's Championship I just checked, Ripley is portrayed as face and Charlotte as heel. Charlotte is always the safe bet, but I'm going with logic as "The Queen" took the upper hand at RAW after a post-match assault, so Booking 101 is pointing towards Ripley. Prediction: Rhea Ripley retains AJ Styles & Omos © vs. The Viking Raiders Tag Team Match for the RAW Tag Team Championship Come on, it's AJ, it's Styles, why no to pick him. I know, it's tag teams, crazy thinks can happen, but nooo. Prediction: AJ Styles & Omos retain Rey & Dominik Mysterio © vs. The Usos Tag Team Match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship How often do we see a title change on the pre-show? Let me check, I'll be back in a while. ........ Yes, it happens. I'd love to see "The Roman Empire", Reigns and The Usos to be champions, but if going with logic, Rey was pinned by Jey at SmackDown, so if we follow Booking 101, The Usos don't have any chance at winning the titles. The Usos may win the titles, but somewhere down the line. Prediction: Rey & Dominik Mysterio retain OK, that's from me. See you tomorrow for the results. Bye.
  12. Finally, the crowd is back at the shows. We'll be back with our PPV predictions tomorrow, predicting the results for the upcoming Money in the Bank, which is this sunday - July 18th.
  13. WrestleMania 37 is now over and we are a few weeks closer to the next WWE pay-per-view "WrestleMania Backlash". First, why the F, WrestleMania is included in the PPV's name? To increase the sales? F no, the name of the PPV, has never mattered for it's sale, excluding the big four (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series). You will get a higher sales only if your programming is good and the matches you create have a good build. Despite that, WWE has never been so bad. It is ridiculous the watch the program right now. The feuds are flat, barely any storylines. Sure ok, it's post wrestlemania season and generally after Mania, the writers don't know what to do, but they don't deserve the excuse. They are just lazy and Vince is stupid and greedy and it's already time to retire, stupid old man. I know it's hard to build a long term feud/storyline, but is it that hard to make a show that have at least a little logic in it?
  14. WWE RAW Results - November 9th, 2020 "Miz TV" opened the show and soon after The Miz and Morrison were in the ring, they were joined by The Viper. Orton accused Miz being a coward, for trying to cash-in the briefcase the previous week, but got interrupted by The New Day. Orton hit Kingston with the RKO, while Miz and Morrison took out Woods. McIntyre tried to come help, but all three men ganged up on him. The segment ended with Orton, The Miz and Morrison leaving together, but The Viper still looked upset. *The segment was used to book the main event, which was announced before the show and everything that happened was predictable for that matter. Still, it was ok to see the continuity from last week, the issues that Orton and Miz have with each other.* Survivor Series Triple Threat Qualifying Match: Elias vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Riddle The Charismatic Enigma began to go on a rampage, but Elias took him down with Drift Away. Riddle broke up the pin in the nick of time. After knocking Hardy out of the ring, Riddle hit Bro Derek on Elias for the win. Winner: Riddle *After two consecutive losses after his arrival on the red brand, Riddle finally got his first win and it was a big one. He punched his way, as the last member for Team RAW. As for Hardy and Elias, it looks like they will continue to fight for at least a month or two before having one final blowoff match.* In a backstage segment, the new 24/7 Champion Drew Gulak met with The Hurt Business and bid to join them. After they declined his offer and assaulted him, R-Truth swooped in and pinned Gulak to regain the championship. NEW 24/7 Champion R-Truth Lana vs. Women's Tag Team Champion Shayna Baszler Baszler dropped The Ravishing Russian with a gut-wrench and a knee strike for a near-fall. She scored the win with the Kirifuda Clutch. Winner: Shayna Baszler by submission *I don't know what WWE is trying to do with Lana. Is this some kind of a storyline which will pan out at Survivor Series or it's just a punishment, because of Lana's IRL husband, the former WWE wrestler - Rusev.* Riddle & Keith Lee vs. Sheamus & Braun Strowman Styles called a team meeting in the ring that led to him telling everyone he got Adam Pearce to book this tag match with Styles as the special guest referee. The match came to an end when Sheamus hit Strowman with a Brogue Kick and Riddle took advantage of the situation with a roll-up. Winner: Riddle & Keith Lee *The match had some great physicality, but this was almost the same segment we saw last week with Riddle added to the mix. The RAW team doesn't get along, and WWE wants to make sure we all know it.* MVP and Bobby Lashley were in the ring. They said The Hurt Business would win the tag titles next week and Lashley would win at Survivor Series. They got interrupted by Titus O'Neil, who challenged Lashley for the US Championship. Singles Match for the United States Championship: United States Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Titus O'Neil It was a short match. The All Mighty hit one Spear before applying the Hurt Lock for the submission win. Winner: Bobby Lashley by submission *O'Neil is a guy who hasn't had a significant win in years, but was picked by WWE for this match. The match itself was only used to make Lashley look good before Survivor Series and as for that purpose, it worked great.* RAW Women's Champion Asuka vs. Women's Tag Team Champion Nia Jax (w/ Shayna Baszler) Baszler was rooting for her tag team partner as Rose, Brooke and Lana were rooting for Asuka. They started off with a physical exchange that saw Asuka attempt a few different submissions. The more powerful Jax was able to break free each time. Lana and Baszler ended up on the apron, and Asuka knocked them both down. Baszler attacked her to cause a disqualification. Winner: Asuka by DQ A huge brawl started between everyone. The women's tag champs cleared the ring of everyone but Lana, which allowed them to put her through another announce table. *Asuka and Jax had a nice physical bout going before the disqualification. Putting Lana through another table and then telling her to quit is an important point for this storyline. If WWE is going to build sympathy for her, it needs to start happening now.* Fatal 7-Way Match for the 24/7 Championship: 24/7 Champion R-Truth vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Erik vs. Drew Gulak vs. Tucker vs. Gran Metalik vs. Lince Dorado All of the participants held the title at one point during the match. After Dorado pinned his Lucha House Party teammate, R-Truth took advantage of the shock to win the 24/7 Title for a record 44th time and took off for the exits. Winner: R-Truth *It was a comedy segment, but a very bad one. The booking of the 24/7 title is ridiculous and it's getting worse every single show. WWE must quickly change that or nothing good awaits this division.* Mustafa Ali vs. Ricochet Ali hit a backstabber from the top rope but failed to get the pin. He berated Ricochet until he punched Ali in the face and hit a reverse hurricanrana. He took out the rest of Retribution with a springboard corkscrew, but he missed the phoenix splash. Ali locked him in a submission and choked him out for the win. Winner: Mustafa Ali by submission *By booking this match, WWE did wonders for RETRIBUTION. Finally they were able to rack up a much needed win. I hope their wins are yet to increase. Ali and Ricochet are among the best bell-to-bell performers WWE has today, and they did their best to make sure this show had something to redeem it a little.* Drew McIntyre & RAW Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. WWE Champion Randy Orton, The Miz & John Morrison McIntyre got the hot tag, and he started throwing Miz and Morrison around the ring while staring at Orton the entire time. He spiked Morrison with a Future Shock DDT and put him in the corner so Orton could tag himself in. The Viper refused and left his teammate to eat a Claymore Kick to give the good guys the win. Winner: Drew McIntyre & The New Day *This was a classic heel technique by Orton. Refusing to wrestle is the kind of thing that gets easy heat with a live crowd, especially when that person is a champion. The New Day may have been in the match, but this felt like it was all about McIntyre and Orton, which is not a bad thing. It was also used as a build up for next week, where Orton will defend the WWE Championship against McIntyre.*
  15. WWE SmackDown Results - November 6th, 2020 *I'm so excited about the SmackDown Women's Championship match, so let's not waste time, let's start!* Singles Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship: SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks vs. Bayley The match started slow, but picked up the pace. Bayley introduced a kendo stick but it was misdirection as she really intended to use a chair. Banks kicked it away but the challenger delivered a backstabber, followed by a Bayley-to-Belly for a heated near-fall. A top-rope elbow earned another two-count. Bayley applied the Bank Statement, looking to use the champion’s own finisher against her. Banks fought back and answered with her own backstabber and Bank Statement for the win. Winner: Sasha Banks by submission After the match, as Banks celebrated, Carmella blasted her with a superkick. An X-Factor left Banks lying on the entrance ramp. *This was all about Banks successfully retaining her title. Greatly booked face vs. heel action, as Bayley even attempted cheating by introducing a steel chair. It was good to see Banks finally retaining a championship. As for now her feud with Bayley is over, we got introduced with Banks' newest challenger, the returning Carmella. If nothing else, it provides a fresh match that fans have not seen before while showcasing this new incarnation of Carmella.* Kayla Braxton interviewed Jey Uso, but it was qucikly interrupted by Paul Heyman, who revealed that Roman Reigns had not authorized the interview. Backstage, an angry Reigns corrected Uso for taking on an interview (“You trying to tell your story?”), then ordered Heyman to get Adam Pearce because they were going to handle the KO problem, referring to Owens’ back-and-forth with Uso earlier. *It was a great segment showcasing Reigns' powers as The Tribal Chief, controlling what Jey is doing. It's an amazing heel persona of Reigns and even better is Jey, who is so damn sympathetic that you want to see him freed from his position. Also, a great way to set up the main event.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match: King Corbin vs. Rey Mysterio (w/ Dominik) Before tha match, in the backstage, Corbin attacked Rey, which contributed for him to dominated almost the entire match. Seth Rollins showed up on top of the ramp in the middle of the match to provide even more distraction for Mysterio. The momentum of the match shifted in favor of Rey, when he bit Corbin on the forehead. Mysterio countered a Powerbomb and delivered 619, but got distracted again as Rollins attacked Dominik at ringside. As Aalyah and Murphy appeared, Mysterio became distracted, allowing Corbin to deliver End of Days and cash his ticket to Survivor Series. Winner: King Corbin *Corbin joins the SmackDown team for Survivor Series, which is kind of awesome. But not nearly as awesome is the never-ending nonsense between the Mysterios, Murphy and Rollins. This is really a program that needs to go away, as it's going on for three months already.* Survivor Series Triple Threat Qualifying Match: Ruby Riott vs. Natalya vs. Zelina Vega In her second Triple Threat Match in two weeks, Natalya went to war with Zelina Vega and Ruby Riott for an opportunity to qualify for the SmackDown Survivor Series Women’s Team. The action was fast and furious, none of the three gaining a sustainable advantage. But just when The Queen of Harts locked Vega in the Sharpshooter, Riott snuck in with a second submission maneuver. Just as Natalya released the Sharpshooter, Zelina tapped and Riott scored the win, much to Natalya’s dismay. Winner: Ruby Riott by submission *I loved the ending of the match, as it was very innovative. But the match was far too rushed to be any good, to feature any sort of story or to properly showcase any of the three women involved.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match: Otis vs. Seth Rollins Otis oddly enough took control of the match early on. Despite Murphy's presence at ringside, Otis continued to bump Rollins around the squared circle, seemingly immune to the SmackDown savior's onslaught. After a few slams, Otis set up the Caterpillar, but Murphy hopped up on the apron, providing the distraction, that allowed Rollins to catch Otis with a superkick and stomp for the win. Winner: Seth Rollins *The story between Rollins, Murphy and the Mysterio family is getting even more confusing. At first, I thought that Murphy is here to distract Rollins in some way or attack him after the match, but actually it turned out, he helped him to win. As for Otis, he has gotten himself all caught up in things as he dropped the match here and appears directionless after a hot start to 2020. In a post-match segment, we saw Murphy exhorting Seth, that he's with him again, only moments later to see Aalyah confronting Murphy for his actions. Murphy asked Aalyah only to trust him, as "this is for the greater good". It looks like Murphy have something planned, maybe gaining Rollins' trust back, only to stab him. We'll wait to see.* Kevin Owens vs. Jey Uso Both exchanged some quick hits, but Owens got the momentum. When Roman didn't like what he was seeing in the match, he sent Paul Heyman out to ringside. That was enough of a distracion, so Jey hit Owens with a superkick. Owens fought back into the match and delivered a Pop-Up Powerbomb, but Jey used the ropes the break the pin. The music of Roman Reigns played, distracted Owens and Jey was able to low blow Owens. Then he followed with a superkick and splash for the win. Winner: Jey Uso *The best storyline in WWE continues to get better, thanks in part to Uso’s willingness to embrace the dark side by becoming everything he fought his cousin to avoid. He is becoming more ruthless, more aggressive and more willing to break any and all rules if it means winning a match and propping up the family.* So far the storylines are: 1. At Survivor Series, we'll be getting Asuka vs. Sasha Banks, but after that we'll focus on the new feud between Banks and Carmella. 2. Building up both the Women's and Men's SmackDown teams for Survivor Series. Men's team for now is Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, King Corbin and Seth Rollins. I think Big E will be the last member of the team. Women's team for now is Bianca Belair and Ruby Riott. 3. Somehow the story between Rollins and The Mysterios is continuing. I don't know where this will lead us, but I hope the focus of the storyline will switch to Rollins vs. Murphy. 4. The storyline with Reigns and Jey is getting even better, as now Uso is embracing the dark side in himself by becoming more ruthless and more aggressive. This is certainly to continue and I hope Jimmy joins them soon. Owens and Bryan maybe will have something to say against Reigns' stable and probably they will be the next challengers for the title.
