WWE Monday Night Raw 11/23/2015 Review

Ah yes, Nashville got the night after Survivors Series. The opening was interesting, in that Roman Reigns got told that he should’ve shook Triple H’s hand last night. Then of course, he gets attacked, but not by the Authority, by Rusev. Rusev will now be the in between guy to beat up Roman before going for the TLC ppv and a title shot against Sheamus. I’m going to say that he doesn’t win, and he ends up not winning the Royal Rumble either. That’s my two cents. Rusev sucks, he couldn’t beat Cena, he got jobbed out left and right, so meh on all of this, meh on it.

Bray Wyatt defeated The Dudley Boyz

Why? Wyatt beat up the Dudleys, and the Wyatts are supposed to be “strong” again? They just got jobbed out last night to the Brothers of Destruction. This is stupid. I have no care for the Wyatts, as they lose every feud, and that’s that.

Becky Lynch is the latest victim of the distraction Roll Up. Ok match, but so much for that “divas revolution”, right? Lame. The girls are good though, give them more time WWE.

The New Day was funny, but running away from the tag title match, and wasting time is a great piece of evidence that WWE is out of touch. It’s like watching the Southpark episode about wrestling, to be honest. They are funny, but why hold onto the belts by running away? I miss the days of the strong champions.

Neville defeated Mark Henry

Not a bad match, just very quick. Henry is still employed? Wow.

Double count out for the Divas Match? Really. Meh.

Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler put on a cool, throwaway tag match. It was fast paced, and finished well enough, but it meant nothing in my view.

Roman Reigns defeated Rusev by Disqualification

A solid match from these two ended with Roman Reigns getting beat up by the villains of the WWE. Most of which haven’t won anything, or done anything of significance for a while. I think that with this, we’ll end up seeing Roman get into the Royal Rumble at #1, and still not win. But that’s me. Unless the WWE is planning on eventually putting the belt on Reigns, I don’t know.

WWE Smackdown 11/12/2015 Results and Review From The UK

WWE Smackdown 11/12/2015 Results and Review From The UK

WWE Smackdown 11/12/2015 Results

Brown Snowman defeated Fandango
Neville defeated Wade Barrett
Kalisto defeated Ryback
Alberto Del Rio defeated Stardust

WWE Smackdown 11/12/2015 Review

The Wyatts came out to bring a challenge to the dead men. However, as we know the Wyatts don't really win much, and they were pummeled by Kane and Undertaker already, so there's no interest from me in the feud.

Brown Snowman beat up Fandango, or rather, he buried yet another start. I'm tired of the burials. Remember when Fandango was over? Oh well.

Notes on Neville’s Win over Barrett

Neville is an interesting wrestler to watch, and Barrett, well, he’s still moving forward with losing. What a dichotomy huh? I don’t know, I miss the “Bad News” gimmick that he was pushing. He’s not the same any more. That’s just my two cents. It would be cool see Neville in the semi-finals of this tournament, only to meet up with Ambrose or Reigns some time, but that’s too much wishful thinking, I’m sure. Barrett loses again, that’s all that matters. This was a good match though, I can’t take that away from the two.

Notes on Kalisto

Kalisto beat Ryback which was odd to see. Why? Is the WWE really pushing him because they are putting him in a big feud or is it just because they need a latino star, so they’ll try to see if he can carry through a solo act? I don’t know. Ryback’s show of sportsmanship was cool, but the match was not half bad. There were some boring spots, and slow down, but overall, Kalisto’s win was definitely cool to see. He’s going to end up facing off against Del Rio, most likely, but eh, why not?

Alberto Del Rio is on steroids.

This is all I saw. I didn't get to see the whole show, because I had to run. Oh well.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/9/2015 Results and Review The Roman Empire Begins

WWE Monday Night Raw was live from Manchester, England, I think. The show started with the classic Triple H sell out promo in which he tried to get Roman Reigns to join the Authority. Reigns said he would never sell out, and that began the showcase. There’s a tournament coming through for the WWE title, and it’s all but telegraphed that Roman Reigns is going to be the new champion, at least that’s what I’m seeing. Unless there’s a swerve, in which he turns Heel, because he can’t beat Ambrose in the finals.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/9/2015 Results

Roman Reigns defeated Big Show
Kevin Owens defeated Titus O’Neil
Becky Lynch defeated Paige
Dolph Ziggler defeated The Miz
Cesaro defeated Sheamus
Dean Ambrose defeated Tyler Breeze

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/9/2015 Review

Big Show and Roman Reigns again was a snooze fest. I’ve already seen them wrestle 100 million times, so I give up on that offering from WWE.

Kevin Owens wins a simple match in my view. I knew he was going over, suspension of disbelief is rough here.

I never thought the “divas revolution” was that good, and still don’t. This match was ok. Paige beat up Becky Lynch after the match, which she lost. Charlotte came out to save her, but overall, I’m not buying the Paige mean streak. I’m not buying any of this as long as it’s called the “divas” championship, and we don’t get more action in the ring. I’m still optimistic, though, as maybe there’ll be a good showcase at Survivors Series.

Dolph Ziggler is going to go far, but he’ll never be champion. They don’t have that much faith in him, I don’t think. Miz is still employed? Could’ve fooled me.

Cesaro defeating Sheamus was a highlight of Raw for me. Wayne Rooney is a stellar soccer player, and his slap on Barrett was cool. But wow, Cesaro is an incredible wrestler. If you go back and watch the match, you’ll see his flexibility shine as he was easily fluid against Sheamus, even in a hard style match up. I’m rooting for Cesaro to win, but I doubt it’s going to go down like I wish.

Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns will be headed for a collision course in my view, with Reigns turning heel. Ambrose is supposedly the “Lunatic” fringe, so I don’t think they’ll have him aligned with The Authority.

The Brothers of destruction showed up to break up the Wyatt family party. It was ok. I don't want to see these guys take up a roster spot. They're old, tired, and boring. Wyatt will most likely lose yet again, a loser. Why would anyone even be scared of this guy? He NEVER wins when it counts. Oh well. I'm tired of these idiots, the whole thing is lame.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/2/2015 Results and Review

The opening of the show from Denver, Colorado featured Roman Reigns on the MIC. He sucks on the MIC, don’t give him a MIC! Then Rollins came out and the two jarred, before the authority established the main event. Oh well, boredom. Remember, this review is only highlights of what I liked or remember, not an in depth discussion, since some of the stuff is too boring to talk about.

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/2/2015 Results

Kevin Owens defeated Dolph Ziggler
Cesaro defeated The Miz
The Lucha Dragons defeated King Barrett and Sheamus
Alberto Del Rio defeated R Truth
Paige defeated Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Brie Bella in a fatal 4 way
The Usos, Dean Ambrose, Ryback and Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins, The New Day, and Kevin Owens in a traditional Survivor’s Series Match

WWE Monday Night Raw 11/2/2015 Review

Kevin Owens defeated Dolph Ziggler

The match was good, Owens does very well when he wrestles someone that can bump. Dolph is always a great wrestler, and I’ve said that since 2009. Owens gets a win thanks to Tyler Breeze’s distraction, which should pan out to a Ziggler match and possibly a shot at the Intercontinental Title eventually. Gotta love the fall away slam into the barricade, that’s a nice twist. Tyler Breeze and Dolph fought a bit after, setting up what will no doubt be the next feud that the two will have. Owens is left with finding new opponents for that IC title.

Cesaro defeated The Miz

The Miz is still employed? Good For him. Cesaro won an ok match, nothing to write about here. Miz loses, and that’s it.

Bray Wyatt sucks. Great promo for a guy that loses EVERY match that matters. I don’t get it. Oh well.

Paige defeated Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Brie Bella in a fatal 4 way

By far one of the best women’s wrestling match I’ve seen on Raw. I thought it was grand. There were a lot of great moments here. Paige is ok, but I didn’t want her to win, obviously. Paige did manage to eek out a win here, and will go on to fight Charlotte at the next ppv. I can’t say enough about how great this match was. It was lengthy, there were a lot of good points, even though the start seemed to be at half-speed. Once it got started, though, things picked up and the women really put on a show. Brie took a serious knee to the face, Banks and Lynch really took some bumps, and well, Paige wins, and that’s that.

The Usos, Dean Ambrose, Ryback and Roman Reigns defeated Seth Rollins, The New Day, and Kevin Owens in a traditional Survivor’s Series Match

Not a terrible main event at all. However, I’m tired of seeing Rollins looking so much like a coward. When will we have a “strong” champion booked? I still don’t like Reigns. Where’s Lesnar, anyways? Shouldn’t he be in the title picture? Logic gets thrown out the window. As far as the match, it was a good one.

Raw is too long. I’ll say that much. Even recorded on my DVR, I had to dedicate quite a lot to watch this thing. It’s just too much, and just not as grand. That’s the end of my review of sorts, I’ll see if I can watch Smackdown as I try to resurrect this site from the undead.

Watch For The Roman Reigns Swerve – Roman Reigns To Turn Heel

I’ve watched a lot of wrestling in my day. Some may say too much of it. I recently cancelled my WWE Network subscription because it was getting so bad. I never used it. I miss my VHS tape collection and the tape trading that used to go on in the 1980s and 1990s. The streaming thing is dumb. I wish I still had my collection of wrestling videos, as they were unedited, recorded directly from the pay per views, but alas, times change and well, so do I.

Right now there is a title match coming up that was set at Raw. The match will be Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. The two will battle it out for the WWE title, and I already see in my crystal ball, a swerve brewing. I think that Roman Reigns will be turning heel. I know, this sounds insane, but after the warm welcome that HHH and Stephanie gave Rollins after beating Kane this past week at Hell in A Cell, don’t disregard the swerve.

Roman Reigns has been battling fan approval for some time. The fans booed him out of the building across the country, and are now starting to warm up to him. However, Rollins is putting on some insane matches. What I’m seeing as something that will happen at the Survivor Series, is a screw job. The Authority will screw over Rollins and Roman Reigns will get the win, and join the Authority. That’s right, The Authority will team up with Reigns, Reigns will cut a promo about how the fans hated him and well they can shove it, and Rollins will be that hero baby face chasing the title and the win back.

Of course, there’s also Brock Lesnar waiting. A Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar rematch for the title could very well headline The Royal Rumble, assuming this goes through. Leading to a 3 way at Mania with Rollins, Reigns, and Lesnar, only for Sheamus to mess things all up for everyone.

This is all fantasy, but alas, I smell a Roman Reigns and even John Cena heel turn, and that’s my 2 cents for now.
