  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.*
  11. 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.
  12. Tonight on SmackDown, Sasha Banks will defend her newly won SmackDown Women's Championship against Bayley. The match deserves to be main event of the evening, so let's make a quick review of it. Before I begin, let me say first that I love seeing Sasha as the new Women's Champion. So actually I think, Banks won the title little too early in her feud with Bayley. Their match at Hell in a Cell was the first PPV match of their feud and I really thought, that Bayley would retain, so eventually Banks could win the title in a bigger match. But WWE caught me in surprise when Bayley submited to the Bank Statement. Yes, it was an amazing feeling when that happened, but I think their rivalry is far from over. Bayley invoked her rematch clause on the next episode of SmackDown and Banks accepted. Now it's time to insert the fact, that Banks has never defended successfully the Women's Title on the main roster. If it was any other championship, I'd have no doubts about a retention. But taking into account this fact, I won't be suprised if Bayley regains the title back. We basically have two option: 1. Sasha retains the title and her feud with Bayley is over for now. After her match with Asuka at Survivor Series, Banks will start a fresh feud going into TLC. *A good option, but as I said earlier, I think their feud is far from over and it will only begin to intensify.* 2. Let's check the second option and the one I'm more interested in - Bayley regaining the title. And for me there is only one right way to do this. (Well, actually two ways, if someone interferes on behalf of Bayley and makes a distraction, which can be enough for a roll-up, e.t.) But the more effective way to do this is by having Banks lock the Bank Statement. Bayley can struggle for a while and then roll-up Banks, while she is still in the submission hold. The referee will start to count - 1, 2.. at this point Bayley will tap-out, but the ref won't see it, count the 3 and call for the bell. They will announce Bayley as the NEW SmackDown Women's Champion and we can end the show with that. *From this point onward, it's a fictional booking, which I'd like to see happen.* At Survivor Series, Bayley will face Asuka and lose, after interference from Banks. As I said, the rivalry is yet to become personal. After Survivor Series, Banks will try to go for her rematch, only to be forced to earn it in a match against.... let's say Bianca Belair. At the match, Bayley will attack Belair to cause the DQ win, just to escape from THE BOSS. Somehow Banks will find her way in the match and at TLC, Bayley will be forced to defend against Banks and Belair in a Triple Threat Ladder Match. At the PPV, Bayley will retain and it'll like she's done with Banks. At the Royal Rumble, she'll retain the title against some girl, but the more important is Sasha Banks winning the Royal Rumble Match. And at WrestleMania, both could face in a 60-minutes Iron Woman Match, in which Banks will win the title and this time will hold it longer.
  13. WWE RAW Results - November 2nd, 2020 Randy Orton opened the show, declaring he's THE BEST, only a moments later to be interrupted not by McIntyre, Miz or Wyatt, but by Alexa Bliss. Bliss stood in the ring and whispered "He could be here", and the arena darkened. When the arena brightened, Bliss was gone, but McIntyre was there to deliver a big Claymore to Orton, daring for his rematch. As McIntyre made his way to the back, The Miz and John Morrison came from out of nowhere and tried to cash in, only to have The Scottish Psychopath toss them from the ring. *A segment which cements that the feud for the WWE Championship after Survivor Series will be between the champion Orton, McIntyre and "The Fiend". The show also established that Orton has a numerous threats to his title reign. McIntyre cutting off Miz and Morrison furthers a feud that began last week. I could also see Miz costing a potential championship opportunity for McIntyre in the future, or even cashing-in on Drew when he wins the title back.* Guitar on a Pole Match: Elias vs. Jeff Hardy Elias dominated early, pounding away at The Charismatic Enigma and showcasing renewed intensity while doing it. Hardy fought back, though, delivering a Twist of Fate and scaling the ropes. He attempted to grab the guitar, but Elias grabbed onto his ankle. Hardy fought him off, grabbed the guitar and cracked it over his opponent's back. Three seconds later, he picked up the win. Winner: Jeff Hardy *I hope that concludes this rivalry, because it has been just a 'meh' one. But don't get the hopes too high, as WWE often repeat feuds and matches over and over.* Tag Team Match for the Women's Tag Team Championship: Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax vs. Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke (w/ Lana) Rose and Brooke dominated with two-on-one onslaughts, isolating the opposition and working her over. It worked with Jax and then with Baszler as the babyfaces kept the champions reeling. Baszler momentarily allowed herself to become distracted by Lana. Brooke scored a roll-up, but The Queen of Spades kicked out, sending Brooke into Lana. Baszler followed with the Kirifuda Clutch for the submission win. Winner: Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax by submission *Though they will all be teammates at Survivor Series, Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke battled Women's Tag Team champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the gold this week while fifth teammate Lana watched from the entrance ramp. The chemistry for Team RAW at Survivor Series is all over the place, allowing WWE to tell the all-too-frequent story of wacky, mismatched partners who hate each other, which almost always leads for the mismatched team to end up winning.* United States Champion Bobby Lashley (w/ MVP) vs. 24/7 Champion R-Truth R-Truth went for some offense, but was short lived after Lashley speared him. Then The All Mighty locked The Hurt Lock and Truth was forced to submit. Winner: Bobby Lashley by submission After the match, Drew Gulak attempted to win the 24/7 Championship from Truth, only to find himself trapped in the same submission hold. Lashley released Gulak...right onto Truth. Three seconds later, Gulak scored the win and the title. NEW 24/7 Champion Drew Gulak *The intention was to put Lashley over as an unstoppable badass and it worked pretty well. As for Gulak, it's the never ending switch-a-roo of the 24/7 Championship. Not gonna be suprised if until the end of the night, R-Truth reclaims the title back.* AJ Styles hit the ring and proclaimed himself as the captain for Team RAW at Survivor Series. He introduced Sheamus and Keith Lee, but got interrupted by Braun Strowman. The Monster Among Men said that "The only thing this team needs is these hands", but was reminded that he must qualify first. Adam Pearce appeared and said Strowman needs a qualifying match but he can't find an appropriate opponent. Eventually, Styles pitched Lee vs. Sheamus vs. Strowman, which Pearce agreed to. *Not a good way, but a way to put Strowman on the team and create some chemistry between the team members.* Survivor Series Triple Threat Qualifying Match: Sheamus vs. Keith Lee vs. Braun Strowman The three behemoths put on a jaw-dropping display of strength that saw Lee toss The Celtic Warrior, and all three men come crashing in shattering fashion when Strowman and Lee brought Sheamus down with a superplex to the center of the ring. Strowman pounced on Sheamus with a thunderous Powerslam to punch his Survivor Series ticket. Winner: Braun Strowman *Strowman is the fourth member of Team RAW, one more to go. And yet again WWE have booked a team that don't like each other. Now RAW have two teams that don't get along. Little lame I should say...* Firefly Fun House: Wyatt admitted Orton was a very bad man in the past. He started to say he built a new world with the ashes from the fire that burned down the Wyatt Family compound. "Unfortunately, it can't be that simple. He never forgets," Wyatt admitted. With the assistance of Wyatt, Bliss showed off her newest "trick," which included blood oozing from her mouth (or a demon tongue?) and the host of the "Fun House" uttering "oh s--t" to close things out. *Still the best thing going on right now on RAW. It's different, it's interesting, it's mystery. One thing for sure is that Orton is NEXT on Wyatt's revenge list. I'm intrigued how WWE will handle this storyline, because it's far more than complicated.* Women's Tag Team Champion Nia Jax (w/ Shayna Baszler) vs. Lana Jax disrespected, talked trash and attempted to humiliate Lana as she utterly dominated her. She bowled her over, tossed her around the ring and picked her up at the count of two, clearly toying with her outmatched opponent. Jax ultimately put Lana down with a Samoan Drop for the win. Winner: Nia Jax After the match, Jax had Baszler retrieve her opponent. From there, she sent Lana into the guardrail and drove her through the announce table for the seventh week in a row. *The whole match and the segment after were not necessary at all, giving the fact that Jax and Baszler already had a match and retained their tag titles earlier. Yeah, Jax squashed Lana and made herself look unstoppable, but the segment really could have happened earlier, just for the sole purpose to put Lana through the table.* On "The VIP Lounge", The Hurt Business expressed their desire for the RAW Tag Team Championship. That brought out The New Day, who ran down its list of accomplishments, including Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship reign. This let to a showdown between the titleholders and the team of Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander. RAW Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander Late, as the action broke down, Benjamin missed a blind tag to Woods, who delivered a big DDT for a near-fall. Ironically enough, it was another blind tag, this one missed by Woods, that allowed Benjamin to deliver Paydirt and Alexander to follow with the Neuralyzer for the win. Winner: The Hurt Business (Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander) *The Hurt Business announced its impending championship hunt by way of its victory in this one. And rightfully so. The Hurt Business has been one of the few consistent bright spots of the brand for the last five months only adds credibility to its expanded role, so it's no suprise they're THE TEAM to provide a challenge to The New Day.* Tucker vs. Ricochet The appearance of Mustafa Ali cast a dark shadow over the match before it even began. With a sense of urgency, Ricochet hit Tucker with a Recoil to secure a quick victory. Winner: Ricochet The celebration was immediately cut short as the emergence of RETRIBUTION brought destruction to both competitors. T-BAR and MACE landed the most vicious final blows to Ricochet, as the vengeful group laid waste to the high-flyer. *Both, match and segment, were awful. First we have the soon-turned heel Tucker, losing in seconds, which doesn't foretells anything good for him. And then RETRIBUTION, which are a shell of the industry-changing faction some expected out of the team when it arrived. It feels like RETRIBUTION is more and more shoved down the card.* 2-on-1 Handicap Match: The Miz & John Morrison vs. Drew McIntyre McIntyre started strong as he took an early control of the match. The Miz & John Morrison played to their numbers advantage throughout the match to even the strengths. McIntyre was able to survive a Skull-Crushing Finale and delivered the Future Shock DDT to set up Miz for the Claymore. Morrison was able to save his partner, but in the end Drew delivered the Claymore and pinned Miz. Winner: Drew McIntyre After the match, Orton came from out of nowhere to deliver a big RKO and then stood tall until Bray Wyatt's haunting laugh filled the arena. *A great main event to close the show, furthering the feud between Miz and McIntyre. Even though the odds were against Miz and Morrison, they did work a good match. What worked was the closing encounter between Orton and McIntyre, followed by Wyatt's laughter. It continued to put over the threats to Orton's title.* Overall from this episode of RAW, that's the main storylines going forward: 1. Threats over Orton's title. As threats for the title being McIntyre, Wyatt and Mr. Money in the Bank The Miz. 2. McIntyre's feud with Miz. 3. Setting up the Men's Team for Survivor Series, which for now is AJ Styles, Keith Lee, Sheamus and Braun Strowman. Eventually, McIntyre will be the last member of the team. 4. Building up Bobby Lashley - Sami Zayn and other matches for the Survivor Series PPV. 5. Hurt Business vs. New Day - fighting over the RAW Tag Team Championship. 6. Maybe some feud between Ricochet and RETRIBUTRION, which I'm not interested in.
  14. WWE SmackDown Results - October 30th, 2020 Jey Uso reluctantly stood in the center of the ring and waited for Roman Reigns to kick off SmackDown. Jey grabbed a mic and told Reigns he didn't beat him because Reigns had to resort to attacking Jimmy. The Tribal Chief said he can make whatever excuses he wants, but he still quit. Uso said he hates Reigns and began crying, as The Big Dog said if he doesn't fall in line by the end of the night, he is out of the family. *The best story on TV right now. The story is emotional as possible. Until the end of the night, I'm sure Jey will turn heel.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match - Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/ Robert Roode) Ziggler and Roode were able to trick KO early so The Showoff could take control, but it didn't take much time for the ref to evict Roode from ringside. After the commercial break Ziggler countered a Popup Powerbomb with a Fameasser for a near-fall. Kevin Owens overcame Dolph Ziggler by thwarting his opponent’s superkick and hitting the Stunner for the huge win. Winner: Kevin Owens *Owens will represent his new brand against RAW. As for Ziggler and Roode, it's smart to keep them together, as an addition to the tag division.* Survivor Series Triple Threat Qualifying Match - Bianca Belair vs. Billie Kay vs. Natalya One week after Bianca Belair made a dominant debut on SmackDown with an impressive victory over Zelina Vega, The EST of WWE reigned supreme over Natalya and Billie Kay when she hurled The Queen of Harts into the ring post and hit Kay with the K.O.D. to earn a place of the Women’s Survivor Series Team against Team RAW. Winner: Bianca Belair *As most of the matches for Survivor Series were announced on RAW, SmackDown was all about filling up the blue brand's teams. So there you have it, the first woman on the SmackDown team is Bianca Belair.* Murphy tried to apologize to Dominik and Rey, but was confronted by Rollins. When Seth called Dominik a coward, the son of Rey Mysterio stormed the ring and engaged him. Then, Murphy pulled him off Seth and engaged The SmackDown Savior himself. When Rollins got away, Dominik began to shove Murphy, and they started to brawl. This brought Rey Mysterio to the ring in defense of his family. But just when he looked ready to hit the 619 on Murphy, Aalyah stood in her father’s path and proclaimed that she loved Murphy. And when they ordered her to go with them, she stood up to her family and stayed with Murphy, leaving the Mysterios completely perplexed. *Continuing the story between the Mysterio's, Murphy and Seth. I hope this ends up with a big match against Seth and Murphy.* SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits vs. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura Dawkins hit a superplex on The Artist, and Ford followed up with a gravity-defying frog splash for the win. Winner: The Street Profits *Just a build up for the their match against The New Day at Survivor Series.* When “The Boss of the Cell” turned her attention to her upcoming Champion vs. Champion Match against RAW Women’s Champion Asuka at Survivor Series, Bayley interrupted and challenged Banks to a SmackDown Women’s Championship Rematch next week on SmackDown. It was a challenge Banks wasted little time accepting. *I thought that feud will continue after Survivor Series, but it looks like it'll end next week, as I suppose that Banks will retain. But you never know, as Banks has never successfully retained a championship on the main roster.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match: Daniel Bryan vs. Jey Uso In the second Survivor Series Qualifying Match of the night, Daniel Bryan battled a very game Jey Uso, with Roman Reigns stoically watching at ringside. And despite an incredible effort from the leader of the “Yes!” Movement, Uso would pick up the win, catching Bryan with a pair of fierce kicks out of nowhere before hitting the Uso Splash for the victory. When Reigns entered the ring and stared at him, Jey Uso repeatedly screamed “I understand now,” indeed falling in line as Reigns promised he would. This lit the fuse on Jey Uso’s vicious post-match beatdown on Bryan in order to prove to Reigns that he was with him. Winner: Jey Uso *Good build match, but it's bad that Bryan lost clean. But the main story was Jey, finally falling in line and turning heel, as he assaulted Bryan after the match.*
  15. WWE RAW Results - October 26th, 2020 McIntyre opened the show to address his loss from Orton at Hell in a Cell, but got interrupted by The Miz & John Morrison. Miz praised himself for being two-time Mr. Money in the Bank and put over Drew's impressive run as champion. McIntyre had enough of Miz's bs and gave him a Glasgow Kiss. The segment ended with Miz and Morrison running to the backstage, while Drew staying in the ring. *We might get later a "Drew McIntyre vs. The Miz" singles match.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match - AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles brought their best in an attempt to represent RAW at Survivor Series. With the bout hanging in the balance, Hardy grabbed Styles on the apron and went for a Twist of Fate, but The Phenomenal One pushed him off into the ring post. Jeff’s face bounced off the post. Styles clotheslined him over the top rope back into the ring and followed up with a Phenomenal Forearm for the win. Winner: AJ Styles After the match Elias attacked Hardy, by hitting him in the back with his guitar. *Elias and Jeff's feud will continue for now.* Akira Tozawa & Drew Gulak vs. Lucha House Party Lucha House Party focused their efforts against Akira Tozawa & Drew Gulak until the entrance of the 24/7 Champion R-Truth, who distracted Tozawa and the other participants of the match. Eventually Dorado was able to cover Gulak to win the match. *A big mayhem, which didn't lead to anything meaningful.* Winner: Lucha House Party Firefly Fun House segment, where Wyatt got pumped that later on "A Moment of Bliss", Alexa's special guest will be the new WWE Champion Randy Orton. *It gives a hint that in the near future, Wyatt will confront Orton and will start a feud with him.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match - Elias vs. Keith Lee Keith Lee overpowered Elias almost thorough the whole match. Near the end, Elias had the upper hand and hit a sloppy twisting neckbreaker for a near fall. As he went to the tope rope, Hardy's music hit and it was just enough of a distraction for Lee to slam Elias to the mat and deliver a Spirit Bomb for the win. Winner: Keith Lee After the match Hardy got his revenge from earlier, hitting Elias with a guitar in the back. The Hurt Business vs. RETRIBUTION - 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match Slapjack got the first elimination by rolling-up MVP. Lashley speared Slapjack for the three count. Both Lashley and T-Bar got eliminated by count-out after Lashley clotheslined T-Bar over the barricade. Mace was eliminated after getting hit with a Neuralyzer by Alexander and Pay Dirt by Benjamin. As Mustafa Ali from RETRIBUTION found himself alone against two members of The Hurt Business, he got cheeky and hit Alexander with a steel chair for the DQ. Winner: The Hurt Business by DQ *This stable can't take a break. They're just booked miserable and it's not even close. They haven't won a single match yet. Just horrible.* Drew McIntyre vs. The Miz Drew McIntyre got over the loss of his WWE Championship the only way he knows how – by looking for a fight. Despite the attempts for distraction by Morrison, McIntyre was able to make a comeback. First by performing a Belly-to-Belly to Morrison on the outside and then a Claymore to The Miz inside the ring. Winner: Drew McIntyre *A good comeback win for McIntyre after the title loss at Hell in a Cell. I'm guessing he'll be the team captain of Team RAW going into Survivor Series.* WWE Official Adam Pearce announced the Women's Team which will represent Team RAW at Survivor Series. He announced four women (Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax, Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke), as the fifth one would be decided in the following Fatal 4-Way Match. Survivor Series Women's Fatal 4-Way Qualifying Match - Lana vs. Lacey Evans vs. Peyton Royce vs. Nikki Cross It was controlled chaos throughout as all four competitors left it all in the ring in hopes of securing the last spot at Survivor Series. Ever the opportunist, Lana sprang into action after all three competitors came crashing down off the ropes for the surprise pin. Winner: Lana *It's a bit lame, that every man have to earn their spot for the match, but for the Women this spotfest thing happened. Even the four women were given those places, instead of earning them.* Survivor Series Qualifying Match - Matt Riddle vs. Sheamus It was an explosive battle for the final Team RAW spot of the night between Matt Riddle and Sheamus. The Original Bro left it all in the ring, as he attacked The Celtic Warrior from every angle. Sheamus was more than happy to dish back punishment to his opponent, but Riddle dug deep for an impressive suplex to almost secure the pin. One well-timed Brogue Kick stopped The Original Bro’s Survivor Series bid in its tracks, as The Celtic Warrior earned his way onto Team RAW. Winner: Sheamus *Sheamus joins AJ Styles and Keith Lee, as a member of Team RAW.* It's time for "A moment of Bliss". On the show, as guest was the new WWE Champion Randy Orton. Orton suspected through the show, that "The Fiend" would attack him, but actually McIntyre did. Both brawled inside the ring, as Drew took out all of his resentment on Orton. The Scottish Psychopath was getting ready to deliver a Claymore, but was interrupted by "The Fiend". Drew and Orton kept brawling to end the show. *Loved the segment, how Orton preferred brawling with McIntyre over Wyatt, as he's scared of him. Wonder how long it'll take to get to the payoff with Survivor Series pausing everything.*
