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.

COUNRTY DOMINANCE VS. B’N’B
B’N’B are really fun together. If only they weren’t booked like shit separately. Renee talks about the “lack of disrespect from Bobby Lashley to Finn Bálor”. Ok. Bayley runs straight into a super kick from Mickie James that looked like it knocked a few teeth loose. Lio Rush rush screaming from Bálor, and ends up getting a Belly to Bayley. Mickie James wins with a DDT. Nothing too special about this one.
Match Rating: Three Gold Medals
DAY ONE GLOW VS. FABULOUS TRUTH
Naomi has horns. The was one of the worst rap battles in a long history of bad WWE rap battles. The match was just as bad.
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.

TEAM PAWS (BOBBY ROODE & NATALYA) VS. TEAM B’N’B (FINN BALOR & BAYLEY)
Balor & Roode wear each other’s jackets and do each other’s mannerisms. Slow and boring action from Bayley and Natalya. She was about to go for a suicide dive before Bobby Roode tagged himself in saying, “You don’t dive! I’m saving you!”

TEAM PAWZ (BOBBY ROODE & NATALYA) VS. COUNTRY DOMINANCE (MICKIE JAMES & BOBBY LASHLEY) w/LIO RUSH
The Bobbies start the match. Natalya puts her cat ears on Lashley, AND THE ASSHOLE STOMPS ON THEM! Nattie looks like she’s gonna cry. I had no idea that Bobby Roode used to team with Jim Neidhart. Nattie always looks like a warrior, and she fights like one. Mickie James is no slouch, and she looks like a bad ass in her outfit.

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.

TEAM B’N’B (FINN BALOR & BAYLEY) VS. TEAM MAHALICIA (JINDER MAHAL & ALICIA FOX) w/SUNIL SINGH
Alicia Fox takes care of the comedy early before Balor and Mahal put on a good show. Sunil Singh catches Bayley and asks if she want to “Bollywood Dance”. I used to work on an inpatient psych unit, so I feel like I’m qualified to say that Alicia Fox deserves to be in there more than most of the patients I observed.

I know, I am WAY late with these this week. But I’m hopefully gonna bang out Mixed Match Challenge, 205 Live, NXT, and Mae Young Classic today.

TEAM MONSTER ECLIPSE (BRAUN STROWMAN & EMBER MOON) VS. TEAM PAWZ (KEVIN OWENS & NATALYA)
Let’s not pretend we’re here to see anything other than Braun Strowman smashing Kevin Owens. However, I do love watching Ember Moon wrestle. I love Owens pleading with Natalya, “Don’t let her tag!” Owens’ insults are entertaining. “Congratulations, you’re eight years old.”
