WWE 205 Live June 12, 2018 Results and Review Just Wrestling

Mustafa Ali Against All Odds - SRC WWE 
This must be the C show right? All I can say about these shows is that I really miss Enzo Amore. He was killer on the mic and could draw real heat, not like anything going on right now with the wrestling.

WWE 205 Live June 12, 2018 Results and Review Just Wrestling

Kalisto, Gran Metalik, and Lince Dorado defeated Drew Gulak, The Brian Kendrick, and Jack Gallagher

There’s nothing wrong with these guys wrestling, but I feel like I’ve seen this so many times, that it’s been bad. Not only that, the good guys win again, and it’s awful. I hate how predictable things are, and well, once again we are in a predictable mode and that sucks.

Akira Tozawa defeated Steve Irby

A jobber match, nothing to see here. They have such an array of talent, but this is how they use it?

Mustafa Ali defeated Tony Nese

Of course he did. This was a match I’ve seen one hundred times before, and it was good as always, but when you see the same thing over and over again, you start to get bored with things. It was fine, but I could’ve easily spent my time doing literally anything else, and guessed the result of this match.

WWE Smackdown Live June 12, 2018 Results and Review The B Show Strikes Twice

They call Smackdown the B show, and to be honest, it sure feels that way sometimes. This show wasn’t half bad, and I didn’t hate it, but there were some moments that made me question what I’m doing with my life, writing about wrestling, and going to shows.

Before going into the Review, I need to remind all readers that I will be in Chicago for MONEY IN THE BANK, so if you’re out there, drop me a line on twitter, I’m jaydune, or message me on this site or email me and we can connect. I will be there for Takeover and Money In The Bank.

WWE Smackdown Live June 12, 2018 Results and Review

Becky Lynch Flies - SRC WWE 
So let’s get this review started, by stating that I hate the talking segments on all wrestling shows from the WWE. I’m sick of it. Paige hosted a Women’s Money In The Bank Summit, and it was the same that you’d expect, everyone says they are going to win, and that’s it.

Daniel Bryan defeated Shelton Benjamin

This was a fun match, with a lot of back and forth between the wrestlers. These guys can work, and they were given a little bit of time, and it worked well for the most part. Bryan was able to reverse some of the stuff that Shelton was throwing at him, but it was definitely not an easy win. Benjamin was able to get through a lot of the offense, and even reversed a lot of the action, only to end up getting tapped out.

Jerry “The King” Lawler interviewed Aj Styles

This was just a promo.

Rusev defeated Samoa Joe with The Miz as Special Guest Referee

Wow, this is not what I thought was going to happen at all. Rusev looked to be getting choked out, but after some back and forth issues with The Miz, Joe couldn’t get the upper hand, and ended up losing. This was a throw away match with some shenanigans, and it was interesting to see the dynamic. It was a fun little showcase, and I’m not sure who’s going to win the briefcase this Sunday. I will say this much, Rusev looked great with Joe, and Joe’s new haircut sucks.

After the match, The Miz climbed a ladder and got a briefcase, but it was full of pancakes!

Jeff Hardy defeated Shinsuke Nakamura by DQ

This was a good back and forth match, and right when things were getting really good, Nakamura hit a low blow and that was the end of that. Jeff Hardy was great here, and Nakamura kept up with him quite well, but I’m absolutely surprised by how this all came through, with Nakamura knocking out Hardy with a low blow.

Asuka, Becky Lynch, Naomi, Lana, and Charlotte Flair defeated Carmella, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Peyton Royce, and Billie Kay

Wow, what a match, this was exciting for me, and everyone watching. There was a lot of back and forth, and everyone was able to shine here. Lots of action, and lots of fighting back and forth, with the women getting close falls, breaking up pins and so much more.

Smackdown may be the B show, but tonight was fun, especially with two good matches, and a time frame that was a lot less than Raw. That’s something worth noting, that’s for sure.

WWE Monday Night Raw June 11, 2018 Results and Review Things Keep Going Down

This Is What Raw Needed? - Src wwe dot com
Here we go, another edition of Raw, and this time around, I was able to watch and review it! Yay! If you follow this blog, you will know that I will be at Money In The Bank and NXT Takeover this weekend in Chicago! That’s right, I will be there, and it should be a lot of fun. I’ll take pictures for this website. Anyways, let’s discuss the crappy, or rather terrible Raw that came through.

WWE Monday Night Raw June 11, 2018 Results and Review

The opening of the show was a throw back to where everyone was on their ladder talking with microphones and it was a mixed bag of men and women. This was stupid.

Natalya defeated Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, and Ember Moon

Perhaps one of the best moments of the show was this match. This was a good women’s match, and it had a lot of back and forth action, and some good hits throughout. Ember Moon is so good, Bliss, Banks, and Natalya all have great offense, and there was a lot of counters here before Natalya would get the big win. I hope she gets the briefcase at this point.

Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre defeated Breezango

This was a jobber match, and burial for the most part.

Roman Reigns defeated Sunil Singh

We were told that Jinder Mahal was going to face off against Roman Reigns, but he didn’t. Instead, Sunil Singh was in there and he got buried. But after Jinder hit Roman with his finisher and left him laying in the ring. Jinder will lose at Money in the Bank, mind you.

The B Team defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno

I’m glad that one member of the Nexus and Rhyno are getting big paychecks, while The B Team is getting a push, only to lose this Sunday, right? I don’t know, this was a squash match.

Seth Rollins broke Elias’ guitar.

Oh, ok.

Ruby Riott defeated Bayley

This was a great match! Riott is such a fun woman to watch in the ring, and Bayley is always good when they let her really wrestle. It was fun, back and forth, and Riott won the match with a little help from her friends. I loved this, and it was definitely worth checking out. Perhaps the best match of the night! Go back and see this one and see how Riott and Bayley were able to throw down a good match on a crappy Raw.

Ronda Rousey made Nia Jax Tap Out

Yeah, that’s exactly what happened, nothing to see here.

No Way Jose defeated Curt Hawkins

Curt Hawkins dressed up like someone in the No Way Jose party, then got beat down and he lost again. That was that.

Sami Zayn vs Bobby Lashley in an Obstacle Course

This is what wrestling was missing! This was the worst ever. Just stupid.

Braun Strowman defeated Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Roode

This was a very good main event, with lots of action, including Roode, Balor and Owens hitting Strowman with their finishers, only for him to kick out. Too bad he can’t beat Roman Reigns or Brock Lesnar. This was a good match, what can I say? Strowman would win, but he took a beating from all other men in this match, and it’s clear to see that he’s going to be getting close to winning the big ladder match this weekend, but will most likely not get the big win.

This night of Raw was abysmal when you compare it to the New Japan Show, and that’s that.

WWE Monday Night Raw May 28, 2018 Results and Review They Make Money Anyways

Another Monday Night Raw is in the books, and this time around there’s a lot to talk about right? Well, there were a few notes that I enjoyed, but for the most part, this was a lackluster show that tried very hard to move forward with the stories that they had been promoting in the past. There’s a lot of people that weren’t shown at all, and that’s something to consider overall. Other than that, all I can say to start this is that the company will be making money no matter what. That’s something that is going to drive a lot of the reviews of Raw, if they are honest.

WWE Monday Night Raw May 28, 2018 Results and Review

Finn Balor defeated Braun Strowman via DQ

There was a disqualification in this match, and it was going very good for the most part. I though thit was a fine match. Kevin Owens kept running his mouth on this one, so it became a little bit of a tussle with outside interference. I don’t think Balor would’ve gone over, but it would’ve been nice to see him get the big win if you ask me.

Jinder Mahal defeated Seth Rollins via DQ

Another DQ finish? Yep! This was a good fight and it was mainly because Rollins can make anyone look good. Rollins was able to throw down a great deal of offense, but Mahal impressed me a little with how he fought off Rollins at times. You can’t take anything away from him that’s for certain. Mahal held his own, and with the help of one of the Singh Brothers, he was able to garner a DQ finish, and won the match. He didn’t win the title, but hey, a win is a win.

Nia Jax defeated A Jobber

Nia Jax beat up a jobber while getting on the mic to taunt Ronda Rousey. Nothing major here.

Woken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt defeated The Ascension

This was a throw away match that ended like you would expect. The Ascension lost this one and that’s that.

Kevin Owens defeated Bobby Roode

This was an interesting match with a lot of back and forth. In the end, however, Roode was taken down a notch and that was the end of this one, that’s for sure. Not bad, but not great either.

Sami Zayn apologized

This again?

Drew McIntyre defeated Chad Gable

This was a burial if you ask me. Gable got beat down and that was that. McIntyre is a beast!

Sasha Banks won the Gauntlet Match for the Money In The Bank Spot

This was a fun main event and the women did well here, and of course it was Sasha Banks that would get the final win with a submission.

Overall, the night wasn’t half bad, and I liked the bigger picture, but it just seemed like the WWE was phoning things in if you ask me.

WWE Monday Night Raw May 21, 2018 Results and Review The Billion Dollar Play

Finn Flies - SRC wwe dot com
The show opened up with Kurt Angle and Stephanie McMahon. She told Roman Reigns that he lost and he should take things up with Jinder Mahal. Of course, that meant someone was coming out, but it wasn't Mahal, it was Kevin Owens. I hate talking segments on Raw, and so sick of these things that keep coming through. This is like a parody that South Park did. Stephanie McMahon would get upset by Kevin Owens coming out, and decided to make a match, and that was next. The match would feature Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens. A good start to the show, but it took roughly 16 minutes to get to the match.

WWE Monday Night Raw May 21, 2018 Results and Review

Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens Ended in a No Contest

This match was a good opener. Roman Reigns looked strong throughout the match, and Kevin Owens was getting beat up for the most part. While there were some moments where Owens hit Roman with some hard shots, you could tell that Roman was being relegated to win this one, as he kept getting the upper hand through the counters. Jinder Mahal would come down and mess things up for Roman Reigns, but after that, Seth Rollins came down to help his buddy Roman, and that was that. I'm not sure why Rollins cares all of a sudden, but apparently he does now.

Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins defeated Kevin Owens and Jinder Mahal

You would think that Teddy Long came down and set this up, because when the commercial break ended, we had ourselves a "straight up" tag team match, playas! That's right, a full scale beat down of Roman Reigns and Rollins, as Owens and Jinder were able to isolate the Big Dog for this one. It was a fun tag match, and while it wasn't the best one ever, it was definitely good for what it was, a long bout with some focus on Reigns getting beat up while Rollins had to wait for the hot tag. Rolins would get the big win here and that's that. I didn't really care for the ending, but I guess that's that. Roman Reigns and Rollins gets cheered.

Jinder Mahal came out after the match, and hit Roman Reigns with a chair and beat up Rollins as well. Jinder Mahal just kept hitting Reigns with a chair and that was that. I liked that part of the show.

Sami Zayn and Bobby Lashley's Sisters

This perhaps is the worst thing I've seen since Bayley, this is your life. This was just sad. I don't even want to talk about it. It was the worst.

Ember Moon defeated Alexa Bliss

Well, that's the end of Alexa Bliss. This was a cool match, but Bliss lost this one, after Ember Moon was able to turn the tables and hit her finisher on Bliss. I was impressed, Alexa Bliss was crying, and wow, Ember Moon is good. I hope to see more of her on Raw.

Baron Corbin defeated No Way Jose

This was a slow moving match, and No Way Jose ended up losing big time here. Corbin hit End of Days, and well that was that. This was a short match, and it was made even shorter with a commercial.

The B Team defeated Breezango

A quick match with The B Team celebrating, and that's it. Not bad, not great, just kind of there.

The Women's Title Match Signing

This was boring. Nothing happened here. I will be at Money In The Bank, however.

Elias defeated Bobby Roode

This was a good match, and was happy to see that Elias was able to go through Bobby Roode. Roode definitely did well here, but Elias was the one that was getting the win, and he did so with Drift Away. Roode is great at wrestling, and Elias is definitely no slouch, that's for sure. I liked this match. I like Elias, I am walking with Elias!

Braun Strowman defeated Finn Balor

This was a fun match for what it was. Balor kept fighting against Strowman, and it just looked like he was going to be the aggressor throughout, but Strowman kept fighting back. Over the course of this match, a lot went down, with both guys showcasing the best of their offense, including several big moves from Balor to Strowman on the floor. However, Strowman wasn't to be beaten yet again.

Well, there you have it, Raw was nothing big, and well, it was a show. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I think that there's better ways to use the roster, but alas, it had a few moments, I guess.
