IN-RING INTERVIEW: DEAN AMBROSE
Ambrose teases that he’s done with The Shield. He’s so good on the mic. Sure, he emphasizes that The Shield is a brotherhood, but he also runs down all the reasons why he would leave and why he could go out on his, continuing to leave some doubt. I love the options that Corbin offers Ambrose. It’s such a great way to get in his head. Ambrose doesn’t break, and ends up facing Strowman.

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.

Stephanie takes Baron Corbin to the woodshed. Those segments are really annoying to me. Renee Young is very shiny tonight.

OPENING SEGMENT: ROMAN REIGNS
Roman calling out Brock is bad ass. Lesnar doesn’t come out when called, he waits until someone is beaten down and vulnerable. Chicken shit? Probably. But he almost always is the one standing at the end, so maybe he has the right idea. I’m smelling a triple threat match for the title. Or maybe a number one contender match between Strowman and Lesnar first. Corbin is a bitch as GM and is so easy to hate.

Welcome to my first blog post, hopefully it’s not as bad as I think it will be. Let me tell you a little bit about myself before I give you my predictions of tonights PPV. I grew up in the attitude era and loved it. Unlike children of today, there was no WWE network. I had to save up for it or beg my mom to rent it for me, and it wasn’t $10. I wasn’t able to watch every single PPV, but the ones I did watch were AMAZING. One of the PPV’s I was able to watch was The King of the Ring, so when I think of Hell in the Cell, I think of Undertaker Vs Mankind. The most amazing match ever, in my book. Anyways, enough with the nostalgia, lets get down to tonight’s line up.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship: New Day (c) vs. Rusev Day (Kickoff Show)
Rusev Day! Rusev Day! Rusev Day!
I enjoy a good chant, but I really don’t see Rusev Day pulling it off. I enjoy them, but I still think they need to grow as a team. That and New Day just recently became champions, which I had the pleasure of witnessing live. (WHICH WAS AMAZE BALLS, FYI). So I really don’t see them losing.
It should be a pretty good match, Rusev is a brut in the ring and so powerful. I am hoping it will be Big E and Kofi representing New Day, since Aiden english is so how do you say it “Skrawny”. Not saying Kofi, is at that level, but Woods is too solid and not as lanky. I also love when Kofi goes flying, so I would love to see that. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lana decides to throw some interference to help her hubby. Either way It will not help them, and probably will end up costing them the match. I feel as though we may see a tag team pop up at the end of the match. We didn’t get any new blood from NXT showing up, so maybe tonight will be the night?
Winners: NEW DAY!!!!

Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton (Hell in a Cell Match)

In my posts I often say of current low- and mid-card talent that they strike me as a future champion. So I’ve decided to list my top five men and top five women, and why I think they’ll succeed in WWE. I won’t use anyone who has already been a champion, so that leaves out Andrade “Cien” Almas and Drew McIntyre, who have both been NXT Champions, though I think both of them will be WWE/Universal Champions someday. This is exclusively wrestlers who have never held any title in WWE/NXT who I think will be a WWE/Universal/Women’s Champion at some point.

OPENING SEGMENT: ALL OF THE HEELS
Strowman, Ziggler, and McIntyre enter with all of the heels the dominated The Shield at the end of Raw last week, including… Drew Gulak?! I really like Strowman’s line that Roman has his hounds of justice, while Strowman has his DOGS OF WAR! It’s funny to see Strowman as the mouthpiece for this group. The Shield hit back HARD with axe handles after last weeks demolition, taking out everyone except for the core trio of heels. Excellent.

A few months back, I wrote a piece entitled What’s wrong with Raw? In that post, I posited that Raw had too much talking and not enough wrestling, and that it was making the show nearly unwatchable. It turns out I was wrong. It’s not that there was too much talking, it’s that the people who were talking didn’t give the fans enough of a reason to care about what they were saying.

IN-RING SEGMENT: FUCKING EVERYBODY
I’ve been interested to see how the crowd is going to react to Braun and his new alliance. Some cheers but mostly boos. It feels weird because… didn’t Roman get backup and leave Strowman laying first? That seemed like the heel turn. But no, because they’re The Shield, they’re faces no matter what? This seems like a really convoluted storyline, at least in the early stages.
Continue reading “Raw Review, 9/3”
OPENING SEGMENT: ROMAN REIGNS & BRAUN STROWMAN
Strowman is cashing in at Hell in a Cell. That is bitchin’. Roman seems like a total tweener tonight, I was hoping they would go definitively in one direction, but we’ll see where it goes. It would seem we’re gonna see Roman and Braun team up against Ziggler and McIntyre tonight. Is Ziggler fucking crazy?? They’re challenging Roman and Braun. I guess to be the man, you gotta beat the man, but shit, this feels like suicide.
