KICKOFF SHOW

 

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.

Survivor Series Review

On the kickoff show, the Raw women’s team is already fighting themselves when Ruby Riott brings up Anvil’s sunglasses. Why did SmackDown pick Mandy Rose and not Nikki Cross?? Lame.

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.

Mixed Match Challenge Review, 11/6

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.

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.

Raw Review, 11/5

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.

Mae Young Classic Semifinals Review, 10/24

TONI STORM VS. MEIKO SATOMURA

Though Storm has been one of my favorite new wrestlers, I’ve been unimpressed by her performance in this tournament so far. This match starts out boringly as well until Storm lands a vicious kick to Satomura’s chest. I’d like to see her really get rolling, and same with Satomura, because this match has the potential to be amazing.

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!”

Raw Review, 10/22

ROMAN REIGNS

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.
