NXT TakeOver: WarGames II Review

MATT RIDDLE VS. KASSIUS OHNO

Matt Riddle holds zero appeal for me. I’d like to see Ohno smash his jaw. Wait… what the fuck was that? Did they just bury the hell out of Kassius Ohno? Well I guess it’s more putting Riddle over, Ohno will be fine but… ok. I really just hate the stoner “bro” thing. Still, I’ll admit that was a great way to fire up the crowd to start the show.

Evolution Review

TRISH STRATUS & LITA VS. ALICIA FOX & MICKIE JAMES w/Alexa Bliss

Leah is understandable slower with her offense, but she still looks good. Trish looks really good, and I think that’s also a testament to Alicia Fox’s athleticism and ability to make others look good. That’s certainly not to take anything away from Trish. Trish and Mickie punching each other in the face is fun. Did Mickie punch Trish in the poon when she was holding her upside down on the ropes?

They have removed the link for tickets for Crown Jewel as well as the link for the venue from wwe.com. Emergency backup plans call for WWE to move these matches to Survivor Series in case of a cancellation. There are still WWE World Cup qualifying matches advertised for Raw, and it’s unknown if that would be a separate event. Keep it here for updates.

 

UPDATE: Reached for comment, WWE says the Saudi Arabia show is still on as scheduled. A WWE spokesman said the event should be listen on wwe.com. While it does not have an entry on the “tickets and live events” page, it is still listed under shows. So for now, the show is on. Stay tuned!

Crown Jewel in Jeopardy?

This situation is a mess. If you haven’t heard, Turkish police are alleging that the Saudi government, possibly with the blessing of the Saudi prince, lured journalist Jamal Khashoggi to their consulate in Istanbul and murdered him. Khashoggi is a U.S. resident who lives in Virginia and writes for the Washington Post. He is also vocal critic of the Saudi government and of the prince. There’s been an outcry from citizens and politicians alike to stop doing business with the Saudis.  Trump’s response:

REVIEW: This Tuesday in Texas

REVIEW: This Tuesday in Texas

December 3rd, 1991

 Here we are in very late 1991, at a total curiosity of a show for the World Wrestling Federation. This show was a weekday PPV, a test by WWF to see how the market reacted to a non-weekend, non-Survivor Series Pay Per View— the answer was “not well” — and we wouldn’t see the promotion attempt it again until the mid-2000s. It takes place about a week after the 1991 edition of Survivor Series, where The Undertaker, with the help of Ric Flair, defeated Hulk Hogan for the WWF Title.
