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.

Raw Review, 11/12

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.

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.

Mixed Match Challenge Review, 10/30

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.

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.
