WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: CEDRIC ALEXANDER VS. BUDDY MURPHY (c)
Fun action early with both guys showing the crowd what they’re in for with dueling displays of athleticism. An appreciative “205” chant breaks out. Tremendously quick pace and great chain wrestling by both guys. If you’re not watching this show, START! You can watch ANY TIME on demand! And it’s only an hour! Much less demanding than Raw or SmackDown, and lately it’s been much better TV.

COUNTRY DOMINANCE VS. MONSTER ECLIPSE
Two undefeated teams fighting for a big prize, as it’s been recently announced the winners will be the #30 entrants into their respective Royal Rumble matches as well as win a trip to anywhere in the world. This week’s matches certainly can’t be worse than last week’s.

TAG TEAM BATTLE ROYAL
So we’re going to find out who captains the Raw tag team Survivor Series team. Why does Lucha House Party get three guys? I think Strowman will win yet another tag team battle royal. Strowman cleans house. That battel royal did not last long. Oh shit, someone gave Strowman a black eye. Stephanie McMahon comes out, probably to get these hands. Stephanie gets Braun on Raw’s Survivor Series team, and Braun gets Baron Corbin, and possibly another Universal Championship match.

Security surrounds the ring as Baron Corbin enters. I’m sure the security is to protect Corbin from Braun Strowman. Corbin of course names himself captain of the Raw men’s Survivor Series team, but can’t compete. Makes no sense. He names Ziggler, McIntyre, and Strowman as the first three members. He taught Braun to respect authority at Crown Jewel. And Braun will teach Corbin how to eat through a straw.

To quote every woman I’ve ever been with: This feels dirty. Let’s just get it over with.

TEAM MAHALICIA w/THE SINGH BROTHERS VS. MONSTER ECLIPSE
Strowman bowls over Mahal until Jinder tags in Alicia Fox, who is not happy to face Ember Moon. Alicia runs the ropes… for about 30 seconds straight. She takes a water break but turns straight into an Ember Moon dropkick. The Singh Brothers distract Ember and Alicia takes advantage with a neck breaker.

It’s still hard to watch Joe Anoai’s announcement from last week. It puts a lump in my throat every time I see it.

Reigns looks distraught. I… have no words. Man, this is as real as real gets. I really don’t know what to say. Love or hate the character, they loved the man tonight. Such a real moment between him and the crowd, and him and his Shield brothers. There’s a lot of moments that make me embarrassed to be a wrestling fan, but this one with the way the crowd reacted, this made me proud to be one. We love you Joe.

OPENING SEGMENT: BRAUN STROWMAN, DREW McINTYRE, & DOLPH ZIGGLER
The heels run down the Shield, talk about who is going to win the WWE World Cup, then are interrupted by The Shi…. nope, Roman and Seth. Seth calls himself the best in the world. He did that this past week and asked said he wanted a match against Kenny Omega. Omega and Tommaso Ciampa responded. I’m all for that mess of humanity. Rollins gets some cheap Philly pops. None of the promos were that good or that long. I wasn’t a huge fan of this opening. I think it’s because this feud has been stale and boring.

TEAM B-N-B (FINN BALOR & BAYLEY) VS. MONSTER ECLIPSE (BRAUN STROWMAN & EMBER MOON
Ember Moon is one of my favorite wrestlers and she makes everyone she’s in the ring with better. Braun makes everyone he’s in the ring with cry. If Team B-N-B wins, it won’t be because Balor pins Strowman. Strowman is kicking the shit out of Balor, badly. The only hope Balor has is to get to Bayley, which he is finally able to do. Ember and Bayley are terrific against each other. Great, intense pace, back-and-forth action, and awesome moves. Bayley hits her Bayley to Belly finisher on Ember, but Braun pulls Ember out of the ring and makes the tag.
