WWE 205 Live July 10, 2018 Results and Review

Itami vs Alexander (2018) - Src WWE 
The show started with talking, and honestly I don't know, I didn't have the sound on, so I'm just going to review the show's wrestling because I can't stand the commentary and talking on these shows. If you like that, cool, I'm not a big fan.

WWE 205 Live July 10, 2018 Results and Review

Kalisto vs. Tony Nese Ended in A Double Count Out

I'm assuming it was a double count out, because I didn't see anything turn out in the middle of the ring.

Lio Rush defeated Colin Delaney

This match was what you'd expect it to be. Rush wins.

Cedric Alexander defeated Hideo Itami

This was a hard hitting back and forth match, and it was a great example of what 205 Live can showcase, it's just sad that not a lot of people watch it. Itami put up a good battle, but in the end, Alexander was the one that would get the upper hand, and hit The Lumbar Check. Good match, great show, if you like pure wrestling, and lots of commercials for the network shows and the PPV, sigh.

WWE Smackdown Live July 10, 2018 Results and Review The B Show Featuring Hell No

Ellsworth Escapes - SRC WWE dot com
Smackdown Live was in my school's arena, and I wasn't able to go. But hey, there was a good night of wrestling planned, too bad it didn't turn out the way it was advertised, at least not at first. I'll get to all of that.

WWE Smackdown Live July 11, 2018 Results and Review

The show opened up with MIZTV, and of course it would, why not? The Miz brought out Team Hell No, and the crowd was in an uproar. I'm personally tired of this already, but I guess nostalgia is what it is sometimes. The new Hell No team shirt is stupid. Can't Kane just go be mayor now?

Daniel Bryan wanted to beat up Miz, but Kane stopped him, and then we saw some back and forth about Kane and what not. Then Miz got nearly choked out by Kane, before the Bludgeon Brothers came out and Sanity stormed the ring. They started to beat down Kane and Bryan, and the show began with a brawl featuring all the bad guys against Kane and Daniel Bryan. It was just a beat down until The New Day ran down to make the save.

Shinsuke Nakamura and Aj Styles were ready to battle, but after they made their introductions, out came Rusev and Aiden English.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Aj Styles ended in a no contest

This wasn't that bad of a match at all, and it really just had a lot of back and forth. It was a good option, but things got a bit difficult when Aiden English got involved. Aj Styles hit him hard, then Rusev jumped Aj, and that led Nakamura to team up with the bad guys to beat up AJ. But that's when Jeff hardy ran out and tried to mop things up. Hardy beat up Rusev and Nakamura, and then Paige came out and said that we are going to have a straight up tag match! Just like Teddy Long would create! I kid you not.

Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Jeff Hardy and Aj Styles

This was a short match, it was not that great. But it served to get the bad guys a win before the big PPV this weekend. It was a good little match, for what it was, and it had a few back and forth elements. I didn't mind the loss for the good guys, but I doubt that either one is going to win this weekend. Well, maybe Nakamura will get gold, but other than that, I don't know what's going to go on at the PPV. As for this match, it was fine, an ok television match, so there's that.

Asuka defeated James Ellsworth in a Lumberjack Match

Well, this was shorter than I thought, and it ended like I thought it would end. Asuka made Ellsworth tap out, and that was that. Nothing big here. Afterwards Carmella attacked Asuka.

Andrade Cien Almas defeated Sin Cara

This was a fast paced, short match. Sin Cara had a few moments, but it was mostly the showcase of Andrade Cien ALmas, and that's it. He won with his finisher and that was the end. Nothing fancy, a big win, and that's it.

Team Hell No and The New Day defeated Sanity and The Bludgeon Brothers

This wasn't a great match, but it worked out like nearly all 10 man tag team matches that I have seen. The good guys were all over the bad guys, and of course the Fan Favorites needed to look strong going into the PPV, so they won. Everyone hit their finishers, Team Hell No and The New Day were getting a lot of praise, and that was that. Nothing major here, just a lot of fast paced finishing moves, and the Yes Chants. A fun, fast paced match, no doubt, but honestly, it just left me with the feeling of, meh.

The B show is all that Smackdown is to me. Almas finally got a match, which was great. No sign of Tye Dillinger, though, and others that were drafted. The women's revolution is back to full circle, beating up a random stooge, and that's that. Oh well.

WWE Monday Night Raw July 10, 2018 Results and Review The Roman Show

Alexa Bliss with The Kendo Stick - SRC WWE dot com 
We started the night with a package featuring Roman and Bobby Lashley and their feud. Then we got to see them in the back. Roman said he was going to his Ring to call out Lashley, and then we saw the two banter, but mainly it was Bobby saying he was ready to take on Reigns. That of course led to the arena opening as we are in Boston, MA that started with Roman Reigns coming out to the arena.

WWE Monday Night Raw July 10, 2018 Results and Review

Roman Reigns came out and started to call out Bobby Lashley, which was stupid. It's the Roman show, isn't it? Ugh.

Roman calls out Lashley, and then the whole locker room comes out to seperate Roman and Lashley and it's insane. Roman did show some great things, he jumped over the top rope and into a crowd of guys, which was a lot like The Undertaker's jump at WWF Ground Zero from 1997. I'm not sure who is going to go over, but something tells me that Roman Reigns is going to get a good win with a spear, right? The brawling continued here, and the crowd was into it, and you know what? Why not? Sure they are going to fight, because they think that they are better than one another. Got it.

Nia Jax and Natalya defeated Alexa Bliss and Mickie James

The match was basically a lot of Nia Jax getting the most of the women, and Natalya limited in the ring. Alexa and Mickie did a few things well here, but after Nia would win, Alexa jumped her with a kendo stick. The Kendo stick beat down was the best part of the match, and I loved that. Great stuff overall. Other than that, the match was a bit boring to me. Mickie James is always good, but the rest, meh.

Mojo Rawley defeated No Way Jose

This was a hard hitting match, and it was kind of back and forth. Now Way Jose tried his best, but Rawley was not to be thwarted, and he eventually hit the Alabama Slam, and boom, it was all done within a short span. Not a bad match at all, mind you.

Sasha and Bayley are still in counseling, and it sucked.

Seth Rollins came out to talk, and I was not thrilled, I didn't care. Dolph came out, and so did Drew McIntyre, and they started to talk trash. This went back and forth and a match was set up. I didn't care for this, too much talking if you ask me.

Bo Dallas defeated Matt Hardy

Another match in which the B team was able to take on the veterans and win. This was a match that had Matt Hardy winning most of it, and then out of the blue, Dallas would get the win. This wasn't terrible, but it's a bit predictable and I'm tired of it, so meh. That's all I can say about this, meh. Dallas wins, the other guys beat them up and that was that.

Ember Moon defeated Liv Morgan

Ember Moon wins again, and this time she was able to throw down a lot of offense, and eventually did a move that was nothing short of impressive. She did a pinning combination that had her spiked, then flipped over and in a bridge. You have to see it to believe it, it was so good. Liv Morgan nearly broke a nose, which was rough, but the match was good.

Corbin and Elias were tagging together, and Elias played a lullabye with Corbin. Wow. This was a stinker.

Corbin and Elias defeated Finn Balor and Bobby Roode

A good back and forth match, with some good overall fighting. I liked the fighting, and it was definitely better than I thought it would be. Corbin would end up getting the win with Elias on his side, and it was what you would expect. Fast pacing, movement, and so much more, although midway through the match there was an ad for the ppv with Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley at the helm.

Drew McIntyre defeated Seth Rollins

Well, this was a good closing match, with lots of action and great timing from the two veterans of the ring. Dolph Ziggler was on the outside and tried interfering, and helped get his team member a great shot in the process, but honestly, this match needed a bit more time if you ask me. It had some good moments, and while there was some high spots, it was your standard Rollins match, with McIntyre showing he's ready for the big time. I liked it. Rollins would get a loss here and McIntyre would hit his finisher to close out raw, and make it a night.

At the end of the day, this wasn't a terrible show at all. I didn't hate it, but I found that there was a lot left to be desired in terms of wrestling. As for that ending, and the rest of the show, it is what it is, it's the Roman hour of sorts, but there's a lot to mix in this time around. I had fun, and maybe that's the best thing.

WWE Monday Night Raw July 2, 2018 Results and Review This Is The Best They Can Do?

Shatter Machine on Reigns - SRC WWE
WWE Monday Night Raw used to be the A show, the flagship show, the show that you couldn’t miss. It was the better show between WCW Nitro and others. Then they got lazy. They have gotten so lazy, in fact, that this is one of for the ages in terms of bad. There was some seriously bad things on this show, and you know what? I’m going to talk about the good, the bad, and the bad, because that’s what I found to be true about this show, and not since WCW had some insane things, has it been this bad.

WWE Monday Night Raw July 2, 2019 Results and Review

Let’s get things started with the opening. It had Roman Reigns, yes, Reigns talking a lot of BOB in his opener, and I didn’t want to hear it. I got tired of it, but hey, it’s Reigns, he’s going to get attention no matter what. He talked trash, that prompted Dolph Ziggler to show up, they got into a scuffle, and then we got some information for later on in the show, it will be Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns versus Dolph ZIggler and Drew Mcintyre, because they got the better of Roman.

Curtis Axel defeated Matt Hardy

Axel made fun of Hardy at first, then we had a B team match in which Matt Hardy lost. Axel won in a fast match, and that’s about it. There’s not a whole lot I can say about this. It was ok at best.

Dr. Shelby Showed UP To Work With Bayley and Sasha in Counseling

I kid you not. This sucked.

The Authors or Pain defeat Titus Worldwide

This was another short match, and it ended with Titus Worldwide jobbing out again. Yay, more jobbing.

Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins defeated Dolph ZIggler and Roman Reigns

This wasn’t a terrible match, it had some great exciting moments, but what I didn’t like was the ending. The Revival showed up out of the crowd and beat up Roman Reigns, and then Rollins got a beat down too. These two guys got beat down, and that was that. The match ended in a DQ finish, and that was that. This was a good match, with a lot of back and forth, mind you, it just had a terrible ending.

Baron Corbin Apology

Baron Corbin wanted an apology from Finn Balor. He instead got beat up a little, and that was that. They’ll fight sooner than later, I’m sure.

Ember Moon defeated Liv Morgan

This was a good women’s match, a lot better than I would have expected, but what gets me is that Liv Morgan loses here, and the Riott Squad may be left without their leader if she can’t heal the MCL issue. This was an ok match, don’t get me wrong, it just didn’t feature the way I thought it would, and honestly, I don’t understand why factions can’t beat single people.

Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley defeated The Revival via DQ

Well, another DQ finish, and this time around Roman Reigns got a beat down from The Revival and Bobby Lashley walked out on him, as you’d expect. Fun stuff here, I guess.

Mojo Rawley beat up No Way Jose

Yep. I give up.

Nia Jax defeated Mickie James

This had a good match feel to it, and the two worked well enough together, the match had back and forth action, but in the end, Nia Jax was able to finish of James, even with Alexa Bliss on her side.

Braun Strowman defeated Kevin Owens via count out

This was awful. Owens looks like a chicken, he ran off, and hid in a porta potty, then it was knocked off the stage. That’s it. This is how they ended Raw. Not even Vince Russo could think of this.

Well, that was a bad Raw. There’s not a whole lot to say, but I did come up with a theory.

Ronda Rousey, this weekend, is going to cost Nia Jax the title, because she not only wants to beat up Alexa, she wants to take her title too. Watch for the swerve this weekend as Rousey will be at Extreme Rules, in the front row, according to the story. Oh and Raw wasn’t grand, but there were a few bright spots, just awful finishes. No Elias match, lame.

WWE 205 Live June 26, 2018 Results and Review The C Show Or Something

Gulak Gets The Last Laugh - SRC WWE
205 Live throws the same things at you all the time, and here we go again.

Akira Tozawa defeated Tony Nese

I think Tony Nese is one hell of a wrestler, and yet he doesn’t get too many wins. Akira Tozawa gets through a lot of offense here, but it wasn’t without Nese throwing down either. The two went back and forth going through a lot of different arenas of pushes and got through a great deal of fighting to get to the end. Tozawa would get the win with his finisher, and that was that. Nese was not a slouch here, it was hard hitting.

Lio Rush defeated a Jobber

There wasn’t much to this. Lio Rush won a jobber match, which means there aren’t that many competitors in 205 live? Lame.

Drew Gulak, Jack Gallagher, and The Brian Kendrick defeated The Lucha House Party in an elimination style tag team match

As far as 205 Live is concerned, I feel like I’ve seen these guys wrestle one hundred times already, and that isn’t a good thing. I’m so tired of seeing these guys wrestle, and it’s usually to a similar conclusion. This time around, it was another entertaining match, but I’ve already seen everything that these guys can do against each other, so it bored me for the most part. At the end of the day, the match was won by Drew Gulak and his finisher, and then he killed the piƱata in his honor. That was that.

205 Live is now officially the C show for me. Enzo at least brought some great entertainment to this, and this is just boring. No TJP this week, no other players, just boredom if you ask me. Not a great show if you watch this every week, but if you don’t watch it often, it was definitely a good one to watch.
