The Start Of A New Project

Word Of The Week by Jack Wannan

——————————————————————————

It’s time that I start a new project. Something that I’ve wanted to do for months now. Yes, I have started a magazine, or newsletter, or whatever you want to call it. As the title reads on the front, I am referring to it as a magazine. I thought this would be a great project for me. This can be a hub for all of the work I do in a week, with some exclusive content being thrown in too. This newsletter will revolve around show reviews, news coverage, predictions, and if I’m lucky, maybe even interviews. Before I go any further, I want to clarify what my intentions are with this weekly project. This newsletter/magazine is a way for me to publish everything that I have done in a week. I want it to be a summary of every week in wrestling. You can go and look at what shows happened, what news broke, and what my opinions were on certain people or brands at the time. I have no intentions of replacing other newsletters like the Wrestling Observer Newsletter or the PWTorch Newsletter. I recommend everyone to read those often. I am simply just improving my work and showcasing my work to people on a weekly basis.

Now let’s look at what this week has been like. WWE came to Canada for a series of shows under both the RAW and Smackdown brand. This week we have a in-depth breakdown of RAW, and a less-detailed description of Smackdown, but from a live-fan’s eyes. 205 Live also gets discussed in this issue, with notes from being in the crowd. Also this week was the unfortunate news of Bayley and Scott Dawson getting injured. It’s bad news to hear for both since we are so close to Summerslam. Bayley was set up in a RAW Women’s Championship match. There wasn’t anything set up yet for Scott Dawson to fight at Summerslam, but it sucks for him too since now he is completely ruled out of competing there. Since Bayley is not available at Summerslam, WWE set up two triple threat matches this week on RAW to help decide the #1 contender for Summerslam. The two winners of the triple threat matches face each other next week on RAW. You can find more information on those two triple threat matches, including the results and my opinion, by going down to the RAW results and review.

What isn’t featured this week is a review of a weekend event. I was busy this weekend and wasn’t able to write about any shows. Next issue though, I will have three big weekend shows to discuss. The first two are under the EVOLVE promotion. The final of the three is the final day of the G1. You know, this year I really tried to follow the G1. I pathetically only lasted up to around Day 5. It’s just so much wrestling. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just I have things to do. Already watching so much wrestling a week or day, it’s hard to find space for another three hour show 4-5 times a week. So I thought it would only be fair that I at least cover the final day. It’s looking to be a pretty exciting final.

Now that week have previewed this issue, and teased what’s to come in the second issue, I now welcome you to a lot of writing, and work that I have done this week. You might agree, you might disagree, you might even think my opinions are stupid. But no matter what you think, I appreciate that you are taking time out of your day to read it. Let’s get this thing started now, shall we?

 

NOTE: Next week’s issue will be even larger than this. This is almost a test issue if anything.

 

SHOW REVIEWS

 

RAW

——————————————————————

The show starts with the usual intro and theme. After that, we cut to the live crowd in Toronto. The commentators hype the match between Roman and Stroman that is later tonight in a Last Man Standing match. We then go to the ring where ” is already set up.

 

An aggravated Miz is in the ring. He says the show won’t start until Kurt Angle’s illegitimate son comes down to the ring (Jason Jordan). Instead of Jason Jordan, Kurt Angle comes out. Kurt says that Jason Jordan won’t be on the show because he has a match later tonight against Curtis Axel. The reveal of this match got a lukewarm reaction from the crowd. Kurt does mention that he has someone for them, that man being Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. These two of course got a huge reaction.

 

Miz stands behind the Miztourage while he does a bad Paul Heyman impression, then says that Brock will probably lose at Summerslam. Miz goes on for a few more minutes, talking about how little of a chance Lesnar has in that match. Heyman finally gets to speak. He says that everyone in the ring will roleplay. He says that Axel is Stroman, Dallas is Joe, and Miz is Reigns. Lesnar then brings the roleplay to life by attacking, and F5’ing all three guys in the ring. This ended the segment.

 

I thought this segment was very well done. It wasn’t stretched on like some MizTV segments, and it was a good way to hype the PPV match. I thought that it was a interesting change of pace to have Heyman not speak too much, but it did work out. I do think that it does not make much sense that we will see Jason Jordan in a match against Curtis Axel. If they really want to put over Jordan, then they should match him up against wrestlers who could believably beat him. They can’t put him up against the lowest on the food chain and make it look like a push. Whatever, it is what it is.

 

  1. Seth Rollins vs Sheamus

 

The first match of the evening is Seth Rollins versus Sheamus. This match was set up after what went down between them last week. Sheamus made his entrance this week without the concussion (I think it’s called that) pyro at the start. It felt so weird, and I hope it wasn’t intentional. I know that WWE has been cutting down on pyro recently, but I felt it was needed for this intro.

 

Anyways, Sheamus was in control of the match as we went to the first commercial break. When we came back from the break we still saw Sheamus in control of Seth. Sheamus tried for a Brouge Kick but Seth dodged. Seth hit a enziguri which gave him time to breathe. When he got up he took a Double Boots by Sheamus. Sheamus went to the top rope, but Seth joined him on the ropes too. Seth hit a hurricanrana off the top rope then did a Superkick. He went for the pin after that but only got a two.

 

Seth hit a Swingblade when they both got back up. Seth then went to the top rope, but Cesaro distracted him. Due to this distraction, Seth jumped but missed Sheamus, then got rolled up for the win.

 

After the match Seth was fed up and attacked the team. Cesaro and Sheamus outnumbered Seth and beat him up. People were looking for Dean Ambrose to come out during this, but nothing happened. Their music hit then they walked away.

 

I thought the match was pretty good, but the end of the segment was pretty odd. Everyone expected Dean to save Seth, so when he didn’t, we just got a quiet, still anticipating crowd. It was hard to judge this match since a huge chunk of it was during the commercials, but from what I saw it was a close and exciting match. Of course roll-ups are a cop out for rivalries that will continue for X amount of weeks, but that feels like it’s beating a dead horse to criticize a match for that these days.

 

After the break we see a beat up Seth Rollins walking backstage. He sees Dean Ambrose. Ambrose says he looks like a jerk ’cause he didn’t save Rollins, even though he warmed Seth not to do that this week. Seth implies that they want to team up again, but Dean shoots the idea down. Seth also says that Dean is a jerk. Wait a second. Dean is a jerk for not going out of his way and saving him, even though he warned him to not get in a brawl? Seth makes no sense in this context. I feel that Dean is totally in the right.

 

Jason Jordan vs Jean Pierre Goulet

 

It’s time for Jason Jordan vs Curtis Axel. As Jason Jordan is making his entrance, we go backstage and see that Curtis Axel has been attacked. He can’t compete. Kurt Angle finds a random dude backstage and tells him to face Jason Jordan. “Jean Pierre Goulet” comes out and loses a match in around a minute. Funny thing, I saw Jean Pierre at a indie show in January. I don’t remember if he fought under that name, but he fought a great match. It was against Mike Bailey. I remember it being a fantastic match. Jason Jordan put on a good showcase of his main moves in this fight. Not much to say about this since it was so short.

 

Bailey Comes To The Ring

 

We come back from the break to see Bailey being interviewed in the ring. Bailey is wearing a cast. They replay the footage of her injury from last week. Bailey talks about how it felt to be injured. She also thanks the people on Twitter who sent her well wishes. It is mentioned that two triple threat matches will decide who faces Alexa Bliss at Summerslam. Bailey says that she thinks Sasha Banks will win. The first of two triple threat matches starts now.

 

Sasha Banks vs Alicia Fox vs Emma

 

The first of the two triple threat matches is Sasha Banks versus Alicia Fox versus Emma. Before this match starts, the champ herself Alexa Bliss shows up. She will be a guest on commentary during this match. The match starts with Sasha and Alicia in the ring. Sasha goes against the ropes while the two are fighting, but Emma grabs her foot and drags her out of the ring. Emma then does a deadly german suplex onto the apron of the ring. I looked deadly, and great. Emma joins Alicia in the ring at this point.

 

Alicia does a Northern Lights Suplex on Emma and goes for a pin but Emma kicks out at two. All of the sudden Sasha is back in the ring and she does a Shining Wizard on Emma. Sasha does a double knees to Alicia and goes for the pin but Emma throws her out of the ring. Emma then goes for a pin but Alicia just barely kicks out. Later on Sasha Banks puts Alicia in the Bank Statement but Emma comes in and pins Sasha. Sasha kicks out then smoothely reverses that into another Bank Statement. Emma taps to this submission move.

 

I would say that this match was short and sweet. It was obvious from the start that Sasha would win, but I think they did a good job in this match at making Emma a close contender.

 

We now go backstage where Braun is being interviewed. The start of Renee’s question wasn’t really on a high enough volume, but I could tell that the question was something about Roman. Stroman cuts a promo about his match later and says that at Summerslam he will become the Universal Champion.

 

Enzo Amore and Big Show vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

 

Enzo Amore comes out to the ring for this segment and doesn’t say much before he introduces Big Show. Big Show starts talking, but he gets cut off by Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. After more trash talk between the four, this match becomes official. Big Show makes the duo of Gallows and Anderson flee from the ring when we go to the commercial break.

 

Back from the break, Enzo is getting beat up by Gallows. Enzo was struggling to make a comeback for a few minutes. While this was going on, Big Cass shows up on the stage. This distracts Big Show. When Big Show looks back, he takes a big boot by Gallows. Anderson and Gallows try for their finish but Enzo fights out. Once Enzo fights out he takes a Superkick and that finishes him off.

 

After the match, Enzo and Big Show get in a brawl. Big Cass gets a knockout punch by Big Show during this brawl. Big Show and Enzo celebrate on the ramp after.

 

I have a bone to pick with this whole rivalry. I feel that you can’t put Enzo over if he has a big guy to do all of the handywork for him. After the match, Enzo was literally running away from Cass until Big Show knockout punched him. Enzo was the one who got pinned in this match, making it look like he’s weak without Big Show by his side.

 

Finn Balor Heads To The Ring

 

Back from the break we hear Finn Balor’s music. Balor comes out to the ring and talks about his match with Wyatt last week. As he continues to talk about Bray, the lights go out and Bray’s sound effects play. When the lights go back up, Wyatt is in the ring, but Balor is ready, on the turnbuckles. Balor beats up Bray and hits him with a Swingblade. The lights go out once again and Wyatt is out of sight. We now see Wyatt on the big screen. Wyatt cuts his promo on the screen to end the segment.

 

I thought this segment was great. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It wasn’t like the cliché Wyatt segment, because Finn had actually predicted Wyatt and basically out-witted him by being on the turnbuckles. That’s why I liked it.

 

Cesaro vs Dean Ambrose

 

Since we saw Sheamus face Seth Rollins earlier, we now will see Cesaro face Dean Ambrose. Ambrose sees a lot of domination in this match. He starts losing control when he get distracted by Sheamus. While he is walking towards Sheamus, Cesaro jumps him. We go to break while this happens. Back from the break, the two are both in the ring. Moments later they both head to the same top turnbuckle. Cesaro was looking to Suplex Dean to the outside, but Dean superplexes him to the ring instead.

 

After that Cesaro started reversing everything. After a few minutes of that, Dean Ambrose started making a comeback. The comeback got stopped by a nasty uppercut by Cesaro. I mean nasty in a good way, by the way. Cesaro continues his beatdown with two clean lifts and slams of some sort. Dean tries for a Dirty Deeds but Cesaro reverses and tries for a Sharpshooter. Ambrose fights out of it and dodges a move by Cesaro which makes him fall to outside the ring. Dean attempts a Suicide Dive but Cesaro reverses it into another great uppercut.

 

Cesaro tries again for a Superplex but Dean fights out of it again. Dean goes for a roll-up but Cesaro kicks out at two. Later on it feels like Cesaro really had him in a Sharpshooter. Dean fights out of the Sharpshooter. Dean does a elbow off the top rope to the outside onto Cesaro. Back in the ring, Dean almost gets distracted Cesaro but in the moment is able to roll-up pin Cesaro for the win.

 

Immediately after the fight, Sheamus attacks Dean. Dean is getting beat up, but Seth Rollins comes out and saves him. After the attack ends, Seth and Dean get into a staredown. After the stare down, Dean puts out his fist to do the Shield fistbump. Seth thinks for a while, but then turns it down and walks away. The crowd was VERY loud for this. They were very invested in this fist bump.

 

Now to talk about this match, I would say that I enjoyed it. This was the first long match we have had on the show so far, but I would say it was well done. These two guys know what they are doing, and they know how to put together a good match. As I am writing this at 10:06PM, this is so far the best match of the night. Also, I would like to say that I enjoyed how Seth denied Dean because it was like a turning of the tables almost.

 

Ariya Daivari vs Akira Tozawa

 

It is now time for our first Cruiserweight match of the night. During this match, we have Titus O’Neil on commentary. Akira Tozawa makes light work out of Daivari during this match, winning via a Senton Bomb off the top rope. Not a bad match, not too much to talk about since it was such a short match.

 

Mickie James vs Dana Brooke vs Nia Jax

 

The next match is the second of two triple threat matches to decide who faces Alexa Bliss at Summerslam. To clarify, the winner of this match faces Sasha Banks next week to become #1 contender. This match starts with Nia throwing everyone around. Nia is really put over as a giant during this fight. The crowd loves it. It didn’t take long for Nia Jax to become the winner of this match. She won via a leg drop onto Dana Brooke.

 

I thought this match was a good way to put over Nia Jax. Very enjoyable. Not much more to say about it really.

 

Braun Stroman vs Roman Reigns (Last Man Standing Match)

 

It is now time for the main event of the evening. Braun Stroman faces Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing match. The match starts with Stroman throwing Roman around. Roman tries to hit a Samoan Drop, but Stroman stops the move from happening. Stroman then throws Roman off the ropes and shoulder tackles him. When Roman gets up, he headbutts him then throws him into a corner. Ref starts counting since its a last man standing match but Roman gets up.

 

When Roman gets up he tries to fight with a punch, but Stroman continues to dominate. Roman is catching a breath outside the ring when we go to the first break.

 

Back from the commercial break, Roman is making a comeback. When they get back in the ring, Roman does multiple clotheslines. Roman grabs steel steps that were brought in the ring. He hits Braun twice, then hits him a third and fourth time while he is down. The steel stair shots looked DEADLY. They were great. The ref gets to a 5 count before Stroman gets up. When Stroman gets up, Roman goes for a Superman punch but it gets reversed. Moment later Stroman does some sort of crazy slam.

 

Roman is down until the 8 count, but then gets up. When they are both back on their feet, Roman goes off the ropes, gets picked up by Stroman but hits him with a Superman Punch in mid-air. When they both get back up, Roman calls for a Superman Punch again but Stroman hits him with a monstrous dropkick. When Roman gets back up at the 7 count, Stroman charges into the corner but Roman dodges.

 

The brawl gets taken to outside the ring now. Roman hits Stroman with a Drive-By. After that, Roman looks under the ring for weapons. Roman takes out a table. He pushes the table into the ring. Roman goes for another Drive-By but it gets reversed into a clothesline. Roman gets up at the 8 count from that move. Stroman sets up the table in the ring.

 

Stroman picks up Roman and brings him towards the table. Once he gets near the table, Roman fights out with punches. Reigns then slowly, but surely picks up Stroman and Samoan Drops him through the table. Both guys get up at the 8 count.

 

Outside the ring, Roman calls for a spear or something, and runs towards Stroman. Stroman throws a chair at him. That was a crazy, great spot. After this, the brawl continues into the crowd. They find their way over to the announce table. Roman hits Stroman with a drive-by over by the stage.

 

The two are both up on the stage now. Roman gets thrown up against the LED panels on the stage. The panels shake like crazy due to this. When Roman gets up, Stroman does it again. Roman gets up once again, and Stroman has something even worse to do. Stroman tries to slam him through the announce desk, but Roman reverses with a Superman Punch. He does another Superman Punch after that, then tries for a Spear. Stroman reverses the Spear with a boot. Seconds later, Stroman gets caught off guard by a Spear by Roman near the ring. Roman runs all the way down the ramp to charge up for this spear.

 

Roman Reigns walks near the crowd while Stroman is down. In the crowd is Samoa Joe, who puts Roman in the Cohena Clutch. This is all fully allowed, since it is No DQ. There are multiple refs telling Joe to leave, despite it being fully legal. Weird. Stroman gets up at the 8ish count, and Roman stays down for all 10. Stroman wins the match. What a fight.

 

This match was an absolute WAR, and that’s why I loved it. It was a pretty good episode of RAW. I only had a few critiques this week, but in general I would say that I enjoyed this week. Can’t wait to see if they will top it next week, but until then I have to go.

 

SMACKDOWN LIVE

——————————————————————

So since WWE was in Toronto, I decided to go to the live taping of Smackdown Live. It was tons of fun, and it was worth the money, but sadly, due to going to the show I did not do a full review. Since I haven’t been able to write a review, I will just give you my thoughts on the segments, without the results part of it. Let’s start with the opening segment.

 

The opening segment of the show was different, but fun. This opening segment that happened between Baron Corbin, John Cena and Daniel Bryan had a lot of banter in it. It also set up the Summerslam match between Corbin and Cena. Even though this segment was good, I felt the match at Summerslam doesn’t make too much sense. During this segment, Cena said that he wanted to fight, while Corbin expressed no interest in a fight. Cena had challenged Corbin to a fight since he wanted him to prove something. If Corbin had no interest in proving himself, then why even have the match? So far, there isn’t much to build around this match since Corbin doesn’t even care. They could do more next week, but how much impact would it really have when it’s the go-home show to Summerslam.

 

It is also worth noting that 2 whole sections on the side of the camera were mostly empty, and just under half of the upper level seating was curtained off. It was still a very lively crowd, but it was much more empty than what I would expect for Toronto.

 

After the opening segment, the first match was The Usos versus Sami Zayn and Tye Dillinger. Both Zayn and Dillinger got huge pops, most likely because they are Canadian. Also, the city that overused the 10 chants has still kept the trend alive tonight. I thought this match was fun, but it was very obvious that The Usos were going to win. You would have to be crazy to think that they would slow down The Usos’ momentum right now.

 

What happened after the match with The New Day was great. I remember being slightly confused when looking at the ramp where Big E was, then being super surprised when Xavier and Kofi attacked out of nowhere. I thought that was great.

 

Renee Young was backstage interviewing Randy Orton. Renee got a huge pop from the crowd. It was way louder of a reaction than I expected for a on-air personality. After the interview we saw the latest episode of Fashion Peaks. The crowd loved the segment, and I enjoyed it too. It was goofy. What I didn’t necessarily like is that The Ascension’s gimmick, or what is left of it, was pretty much demolished in this. The guys who are supposed to be creepy, scary dudes, were shown in a way that made them look like witty, normal dudes who just wanted doughnuts. I mean it’s not a big deal since people will eventually forget it, but that’s just what I thought.

 

Lana is facing Charlotte after she challenged her last week. Charlotte gets the win in under three minutes. This match had awkward grappling at the start then it ended very quickly. I felt this match was a little out of place on the card. I don’t know where the Tamina/Lana rivalry is going. I doubt it will go on the PPV, so maybe it fully happens on Smackdown?

 

Next talking segment is Shane McMahon addressing AJ Styles and Kevin Owens on their Summerslam match. I thought this was a great talking segment. It had good callbacks to last March on Smackdown and Shane McMahon reffing in 1998. I felt this segment did a good job for promoting the match and showing that nobody in this match really trusts eachother. Kevin has been very vocal about how he doesn’t trust Shane, and AJ said this week that he never trusts a McMahon. I overall thought this was good.

 

The next match is Naomi versus Carmella. Before the match I saw someone sneak under the ring when the lights were out. I didn’t guess who it was, but I did make note of it before the match. Naomi’s entrance is pretty cool live. Her whole outfit glows in real life just like how it looks on TV. The hair is really cool because it really glows in real life. Carmella won this match due to Ellesworth coming out from under the ring and pushing Naomi’s foot off the top rope or something like that. Ellesworth celebrated with Carmella after the match. I thought this was a great way to bring Ellesworth back. By the time that the interference happened I had completely forgot that someone was under the ring. I did not guess that it was James Ellesworth. I thought this was great.

 

Shinsuke Nakamura got interviewed by Renee Young. To be honest I couldn’t hear the interview too well. A mixture of the crowd and bad acoustics made it hard for me to pick up any of the interview.

 

The main event is Randy Orton versus Jinder Mahal. What I found crazy is that Toronto is very, very pro-Jinder. Jinder got a huge reaction and Randy got boos because of that. I don’t know if it’s because Jinder is Canadian, or if it’s just because the crowd likes him unironically or ironically. I’m leaning more towards the reasoning of him being Canadian. I thought this was a well fought match, but it had a odd feeling at the end since in a sense the heel won. Even though Randy won, it felt like the wrong guy won to the crowd. Like, it’s not really WWE’s fault or anything, it’s just Randy was met with so many boo’s that it felt like a heel ended off the show. Just before the show went off air, Rusev attacked Randy Orton at the ramp. When the show went off-air, Rusev did not attack any more. He stood and stared at Orton for a few more moments, then walked away. Orton laid down on the ramp and sold his pain for nearly another 45 seconds.

 

After 205 Live there was a dark match. Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin teamed up to face AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura in a “Toronto Street Fight”. Not sure what makes it any different from any other type of street fight, but whatever. I thought this match was super fun. Kevin Owens looked like he was having lots of fun during this match. A steel chair was used and they did a table spot in this match. If I remember correctly, the match ended with Shinsuke hitting a Kinshasa for the win. I would say that staying for 205 Live and the Dark Match were worth it. Overall it was a fun night, and from a spectators perspective it was a good Smackdown. I might have a some bias since I was there live, but I would still say that I thought it was a good episode.

 

205 LIVE

——————————————————————

Similar to my Smackdown Live report this week, my 205 Live report won’t have too much detail on results. On the plus side, I will be able to give my thoughts on the show. I happened to stay for 205 Live and the dark match main event, and both of them were enjoyable. The issue with 205 Live is the same issue as every other week. 205 made a significant chunk of fans leave, and the crowd that was left was very unenthusiastic. And the crowd being so quiet isn’t because people left. The energy picked right back up when the dark match main event started. It was like the crowd literally fell asleep then woke up later. But with that aside, I still enjoyed 205 Live. Let’s get the review started.

 

The show this week starts with a match between Tony Nese and Cedric Alexander. Live we couldn’t hear what Nese said while making his entrance, but I could see that he did the thing where he counted his 8-pack abs. I thought this match wasn’t that bad, and I thought the whole segment was good to get heat on Nese. Tony’s promo after the match was very well done. It showed that he was cocky, rude, and competitive. When I think of Tony Nese’s character, that’s three characteristics that I expect. Well done.

 

Noam Dar faces a local named Mark Thomas. Before the match, Noam Dar says he recognizes Mark. He says that he watched Mark while he growed up. He continues to rag on Mark since Dar is already in WWE and Thomas is doing a jobber match. The promo by Dar was great. I remember laughing at the end of the promo thinking “wow that was brutal”. This match didn’t last too long, with Dar of course winning in the end.

 

After a break we come back to see Corey Graves in the ring. He introduces Akira Tozawa for an interview. Tozawa is not dressed to fight. Corey isn’t even able to get through his question before Neville interrupts them. Out of everyone on 205 Live, I think that Neville got the best reaction from the crowd. Almost everyone on the floor seating immediately stood up, and he got a audible pop from the crowd. I thought this segment and the brawl that followed it was well done. I think that they are doing a good job at hyping up this match for Summerslam.

 

The main event of 205 Live was TJP versus Rich Swann. I thought this match was the best one on 205 Live this week. Swann’s Pheonix Splash to outside the ring was the highlight of the match for me. The one thing that I don’t really understand about this rivalry is that it feels like the “friendly rivalry” wasn’t too believable of an angle. Wasn’t TJP a heel for a few months? When did he turn babyface and become friends with Rich Swann? It might sound like a stretch, but I feel he wouldn’t be friends with Swann if he was a heel. Whatever, it doesn’t really matter I guess. The main event was good, and the show for the most part was good too. Like I said before, the show would be so much better if the crowd was better. Imagine how great an episode of 205 Live would be if they had a very loud crowd? It would be tons of fun. One can dream someday, right?

 

WWE NXT

——————————————————————

The show this week starts with the usual video package that we see for NXT. After that, we go to Full Sail where Mauro Ranallo, Percy Watson and Nigel McGuinness welcome us to this episode of NXT. They talk about how Drew McIntyre and Bobby Roode will face off tonight.

 

Opening Segment

 

We now cut to the ringside where Sanity enter through the crowd and get to the ring. Sanity are calling out the Authors Of Pain. AoP comes out and slowly walks down the ramp. One member charges and attacks three members of Sanity, while Eric Young comes from behind and jumps the other member. Rezar got tied to a guardrail while his partner got absolutely demolished in the ring. AoP lose this brawl.

 

As a opener to the show I thought this wasn’t that bad. AoP show dominance 2 weeks before TakeOver. The once heel Authors Of Pain also should be more cheered after this. Due to sympathy, I feel that Authors Of Pain will become babyfaces in this rivalry.

 

Metro Brothers vs Street Profits

 

Our first match on this episode is the Metro Brothers versus the Street Profits. The Street Profits have a spotlight on them in this match since a vignette played for them before this match. When they came out, the crowd gave them a very loud reaction. Chris Metro and Angelo Dawkins start off in this match. At the start, they lock up. Dawkins goes off the ropes and hits a hard Shoulder Tackle. He then hits an Arm Drag then a scoop slam. He tags in Montez Ford. They do a few double team moves. Ford hits Chris Metro with a Sideway Slam. Chris Metro does his first attack with a punch to the chest. He then tags in J.C. Metro. Metro mocks Dawkins, doing his hand gesture. Dawkins gets tagged in moments later and hits a Cyclone, Stinger Splash, then tags in Ford to do a Frogsplash. They go for the pin and win the match.

 

This match was great. This was a great way to showcase The Street Profits. The crowd being massively behind them also added to how well their performance looked. What I loved about the final combination of moves at the end was that they all happened so quickly. Matter fact, I had to rewind a little bit just so I could get all of the spots in this.

 

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Roode Face Off

 

After a quick break we go to the ring where William Regal is governing a faceoff between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Roode. One at a time he introduces both wrestlers. Bobby has around 7 or so security guards with him for this faceoff. He says that Roderick Strong is running around trying to find him. The two guys trade promos for a little bit of time. They were good promos. All of the sudden, Roderick Strong’s music hits. Roderic comes to the ramp with a mic. Strong says that him coming out here isn’t about a title, it’s about disrespect. Strong challenges Roode to a fight. Roode gets very angry and says he will fight him. He says that he will fight him, even for the championship, but he has to fight McIntyre first. Roode says that Strong will face McIntyre next week, and if he wins he will fight him after TakeOver. After he says this, Regal shoots down the idea, saying that he is the one who makes matches. McIntyre insists on making the fight for next week. After the crowd chants “Make the match!”, and when all three fighters want the match, Regal makes it official. Next week, McIntyre versus Strong next week on NXT. That ends this segment.

 

Bobby Roode is such a great heel. It is so enjoyable to see him, alongside Drew McIntyre and Roderick Strong, talk in this segment. All three guys did a great job in this segment. Not much more to say about this, I just straight up enjoyed it.

 

Oney Lorcan vs Danny Burch

 

The rematch between Lorcan and Burch is the second match on this episode. This match starts with a collar and elbow tie up. It gets broken up in the corner. They do a few more lockups. A leapfrog got turned into a Flapjack by Burch, which was pretty cool. The two then start trading uppercuts. Lorcan absolutely ran Burch into the corner, went for a pin, then we went to commercials.

 

Back from the break, Lorcan is still in control. He takes Burch to the corner and did some chops to him. He then runs very fast into Burch in the corner. Lorcan tries for it again, but Burch counters the second time. Burch then hit a German Suplex and a Hooking Lariat. He goes for the pin and gets a two.

 

Moments later Burch tries for a slam but Lorcan escapes then hits a European Uppercut. Lorcan does another uppercut, hits another move then goes for a pin. He only gets a two count. Burch got back in control for a minute, but Lorcan caught him in a Single Leg Crab, while kicking him in the head. Burch tried to escape but Lorcan upgraded and put him in a Boston Crab. While in the move, Burch reverses it into a roll-up for the win.

 

I thought this match was fantastic. I can’t say that I necessarily loved that a roll-up was the finish for the match, but it is what it is. That is the only real critique I would have for this match. They deserved the sequel, and they lived up to the hype of their first time that they met.

 

No Way Jose vs Andrade Cien Almas

 

Our third match of the broadcast is No Way Jose versus Andrade Cien Almas. This match is also the main event of the episode. When the fight starts, one of the first moves is a side headlock. Jose Irish Whips him, making Almas fully roll out of the ring. When he gets back in, they lock up once again. Moments later, Jose hits a flapjack on Almas. Jose tries for a Firemans Carry but Almas escapes out of it. Almas gets thrown against the ropes but sticks to the ropes like what TJP does. While he sticks to the ropes, Almas kicks him, making him fall to outside the ring.

 

Almas gets back in the ring has a more aggressive approach. Moments later Almas wins the match with some sort of DDT move. This match felt pretty disappointing. It was boring, and ended very quickly and abruptly. They should have shown this match in the middle of the show, and shown Burch vs Lorcan as the main event. For the most part this was a good episode, but this was a bad way to end the show.

 

IMPACT WRESTLING

——————————————————————

Opening Segment

 

Welcome to the first review of GFW Impact Wrestling that I have ever done! I have reviewed TNA and Impact Wrestling in the past, but this marks the first time that I review this show under the GFW brand. Let’s get this started. The second we go on air we cut to a brawl that is happening backstage between LAX and The Veterans Of War. This brawl is out of control, with stuff flying everywhere. They brawl because they are set to fight each other late tonight. The fight eventually gets broken up. I enjoyed this brawl because it was pretty out of control. Although, I do not like the out of control camerawork that they do intentionally. Maybe that accounted a little for why the brawl felt so out of control. It felt like an abrupt way to start the show, but it wasn’t that bad.

 

Sienna In The Ring

 

After the start of the show, we cut to the ring where Sienna is talking. Sienna is bragging about how she is a great champion. She is standing in the ring in protest because of her match that is set up for next week’s Destination X match. Karen Jarrett comes out to respond to her. Karen says that she has never liked Sienna. Karen announces that her opponent for Destination X is Gail Kim. Kim’s music hits and she comes to the ring. She grabs a mic and says that she intends to beat Sienna and retire with the Knockouts Title. When Gail turns her back, she gets jumped by Sienna. Kim is able to escape whatever Sienna was trying for. Sienna runs outside the ring, but Gail jumps off the apron to attack her again. Two refs come out to try to stop the brawl but it continues for a couple more minutes.

 

I thought this segment was a good start to the show. It promoted a match on next week’s show, which is a show they expect to get big ratings from. What I didn’t like was the awful mic feedback that we could hear throughout this whole 5 or so minutes. But aside that nitpick, I thought this was not too bad.

 

Laredo Kid and Garza Jr vs El Hijo Del Fantasma and Naomichi Marufuji

 

Our first match this episode is four international wrestlers. Laredo Kid and Garza Jr team up to face El Hijo Del Fantasma, who represents CMLL, and Naomichi Marufuji, who represents NOAH. Fantasma starts in the ring against Garza Jr. Before much happens, Garza gets a chant of his name going. Both Garza and Fantasma do a great amount of chain wrestling in the first few minutes of this match. Both wrestlers tag out. Laredo Kid and Marufuji are now in the ring. Moments after these guys get tagged in, everyone does a dive spot. Fantasma does a great dive out of the ring. Back from the replay Fantasma hits a Hurricanrana off the top rope then hits a Frogsplash for a two count.

 

Garza tags in Laredo Kid for the hot tag. All four wrestlers do a spot that makes them all go down at the exact same time. Laredo KId does three moonsaults, each one being on a different rope in the corner. The third one gets countered by Fantasma. Fantasma hits some sort of strike then puts him in a submission that he escapes. Fantasma tags in Marufuji. The actions gets so fast at this point that it’s hard to follow. After all of the chaos, Marufuji is trading blows with Laredo. Laredo wins the striking war and goes for a pin but he kicks out. Garza gets tagged in and hits a GTS. Fantasma gets in the ring and hits him with a Superkick. Laredo comes in and kicks Fantasma at the same time that Fantasma kicked him. Laredo huricanrana’s Fantasma out of the ring and goes for a dive but Fantasma dodges the dive and hits his own version. Back in the ring, Garza hits a superkick and tries for a moonsault but Marufuji escapes. Marufuji gets control and moments later wins with a Sliced Bread.

 

This match was fantastic. This review does the match no justice because it was going too fast to follow. All of these guys showcased their talent very well. I haven’t been following Impact too closely recently, so I don’t know how this really fit into the show. It felt almost as if this was a random showcase match. Fantastic match, but felt almost out of place in a show that is all about storylines.

 

Grado and Joseph Park vs Kongo Kong

 

The cartoonish Grado and Joseph Park face off against Kongo Kong tonight. Grado starts for the duo in this match. Grado gets shoulder tackled once then tags in Joseph. Park looks terrified. Joseph dodges a clothesline then tries for a headbutt but takes most of the pain of it. Park tags in Grado after dodging a corner move of Kong’s. Grado tries for a combo but it does nothing to Kong. Park gets in the ring with Grado and muster up enough power to take down Kong. Kong gets thrown in the corner but moments later double clotheslines the duo. Kong hits Park with a move in the corner then wins the match via pin.

 

After the match, Kong attacks Grado. Kongo goes to the top rope. Laurel Van Ness comes to the ring and tries to talk Kongo out of going to the top rope. He gets off the top rope and the duo of Grado and Park escape. Van Ness slaps Kong out of frustration. Kong picks up Ness, but puts her down when he hears new music. Tyrus comes to the ring. Both wrestlers go face to face in the ring. Van Ness drags Kong away from the situation. That ends the segment.

 

I wasn’t really feeling this match to be honest. There was comedy in this match, which wasn’t awful, but what happened after the match made no sense. This whole segment felt very forgettable.

 

LAX vs The Veterans Of War (Street Fight)

 

Our next fight is LAX versus The Veterans Of War in a street fight. It was announced earlier in the program that because of the brawl earlier, this match has been upgrade to a street fight. As VOW head to the ring they already start brawling. Everyone is brawling outside the ring to start, using barricades, poles, trash cansnad more. Santana got belly to belly suplexed onto the ramp. It looked absolutely DEADLY. An LAX member gets put through a table. As the ref was counting, Homicide pulled him out of the ring.

Back from the break, this match is still absolute chaos. At a certain point, I just gave up on trying to follow this match. A few minutes after the break LAX win after a VOW member went thorugh a table. This match was good, but jeez, was it the hardest thing to follow.

 

ACH vs Taichi Ishimori

 

A semifinal match from the Super X Cup is up next. ACH faces Taichi Ishimori from NOAH. I would consider myself a big ACH fan. This match starts off with the two grappling a little. We go to the break with ACH in control. Back from the break, the action is still very close. ACH hits a hard clothesline that gets a very close count. ACH tries for something but Taichi reverses it with a knee move then a 450 onto ACH’s back, and stomach. That ended it for ACH.

 

Even though I want ACH to win this match, I still thought it was great to have Taichi move on. It felt like an upset almost. After the match, Taichi’s opponent for the final of the Super X Cup comes out. They shake hands. Not a bad segment.

 

Trevor Lee, Low Ki and Lashley vs Sonjay Dutt, Matt Sydal and Alberto El Patron

 

Our main event of the evening is a 6-man tag match. Every person in this match have some sort of tie in to the special show next week. The show starts with El Patron against Low Ki. Patron tags in Dutt after absolutely pummelling Low Ki. Low Ki is able to gain control and tag in Trevor Lee. Dutt tags in Sydal. Him and Sydal do a double dropkick onto Lee. Low Ki tries to attack, but he gets taken down. Sydal and Dutt do backflips onto their respective opponents at the same time. We go to the break with Lashley fighting Sydal. Back from the break, Lashley is in full control of Sydal. Low Ki gets tagged in to attack Sydal. Matt is getting isolated in the corner of the heels.

 

I wonder how uncomfortable it is for Low Ki to fight in such formal clothing. He is wearing long pants, a button up, and a tie. I would sweat gallons if I wrestled in that type of clothing. Massive props to Low Ki just because of that. Low Ki tags in Lashley. Sydal tries for a comeback but gets taken down by Lashley. Bobby tags in Low Ki once again. Low Ki puts Sydal in a Dragon Sleeper that he eventually gets out of. Trevor Lee gets tagged in against Sydal now. Sydal has been isolated for a significant amount of time now.

 

Sydal eventually fights out and tags in Sonjay Dutt. Sonjay, just like Sydal, gets isolated in the corner for quite some time. Later on El Patron gets hot tagged in and cleans house. He also does a dive to the outside onto Lashley. Dutt hit a Frogsplash onto Lee, but Lashley comes in and takes him out. El Patron comes in and Superkicks Low Ki and Lashley. Lee takes El Patron out. Lashley Powerslams Sonjay Dutt. Low Ki goes to the top rope and hits a Warriors Way (Finn Balor’s finishing move) to win the match. That wraps up the show.

 

This was a fast and amazing match. The final 2 or so minutes were great because it was just so out of control. Just like I mentioned earlier in the post, some matches aren’t done enough justice because I couldn’t follow all of the moves. A great match to conclude the episode and to hype up next week’s special show.

 

I would say that this episode was pretty good. It lacked story development, but that wasn’t the main focus for this episode. It’s the go-home episode for Destination X next week. It’s supposed to hype you up for the special show. The matches were good, and in general I liked it.

 

TOP NEWS OF THE WEEK

 

Bayley and Scott Dawson Confirmed Injured

——————————————————————

Bayley and Scott Dawson have been confirmed as injured by WWE this week. The first of the two, has had some suspense to their injury. It was apparent last monday that Bayley had hurt herself against Nia Jax in a match on Monday Night RAW, but it was just confirmed this monday that she had separated her shoulder. Even though WWE wasn’t public about her injury this weekend, Bayley did not make an appearance at any house shows she was billed for. Bayley won’t be able to compete at Summerslam due to this injury, so WWE has set up two triple threat matches for Monday Night RAW this week. The first match is Sasha Banks versus Alicia Fox versus Emma, and the second match is Mickie James versus Dana Brooke versus Nia Jax. The winner of both matches (which can be found in the RAW results and review) will face eachother next week to make the new #1 contender for Alexa Bliss’ RAW Women’s Championship.

 

The other injury that was announced was for Scott Dawson of The Revival. Monday afternoon WWE reported that Scott had suffered a ruptured bicep. This injury happened during a house show this weekend. This is pretty bad luck for The Revival since it was not too long ago that Scott Dawson was injured too. ProWrestlingSheet reported that Scott Dawson may need to undergo surgery. The Revival were currently not booked for any matches on Summerslam, but now they will not have any chance to be put on the card.

 

Kairi Sane Makes NXT Debut

 

After competing in the Mae Young Classic and suffering a concussion, Kairi Sane has returned and made her NXT debut. At the NXT St. Petersburg Live show, Kairi Sane won a 6-man tag match by teaming up with Aliyah, and Dakota Kai. The trio defeated Iconic, AKA Peyton Royce and Billie Kay alongside Shayna Baszler, who also made her debut. Kairi Sane was able to get the pin in this match, using her trademark elbow drop.
