WWE Monday Night Raw September 27, 2016 Results and Review Nothing Makes Sense Anymore

Best Part of Raw Was The Slap From Hell

This week on Monday Night Raw, the show throws all logic out of the window. There’s nothing on this show that makes sense to me, well, a few things, and I’ll talk about the memorable elements from last night’s show right here, right now, on the longest running episodic WWE Blog that no one reads.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 27, 2016 Review


Now, if you follow this blog, then you already know that I only watch the HULU edition, so that’s all I will discuss, at least the memorable elements, since this is a crap fest.

Roman Reigns is a face?

Roman Reigns and Rusev fought to a double count out. I don’t get the Reigns character at this point. He doesn’t seem enthused to have the U.S. Title, he beats up Rusev with a chair, and for what? Why is Rusev a heel here? Why is Reigns in the mid card? This whole situation is lackluster, and without any real heels to challenge the “face” Reigns, why does this continue? I don’t know. I expect Rusev and Reigns in a no dq or chairs match or something.

Match Rating: 1 out of 5

The New Day defeated The Club Sandwich Boys

The Club is nothing more than a couple of idiots. They are as effective as a Club Sandwich. They suck. They lose again, and The New Day continues. I’m so tired of The New Day, and with another win, they seem to just keep milking the trio for all they have. Kofi Kingston got busted open the hard way, which was rough to see, but hey, he continued the match. The Club Sandwich boys looked like the Nasty Boys this time around, and again, they lose. This has been the worst treatment of a heel team in a long time. I’m tired of this division, it’s absolutely terrible.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Two Jobbers

Cesaro and Sheamus are now a tag team. What a B.S. way to get them into the mix of tag matches after a best of 7 series. I hate this. It’s stupid, I don’t want to see this, and well it happened. The jobbers get a nice payday, they get beat up, and we all go home happy.

Match Rating: 1 out of 5

Sasha Banks slapped the holy hell out of Charlotte

Holy crap. The best thing about this segment was that Sasha Banks slapped the holy hell out of Charlotte. Charlotte wasn’t looking and Sasha slapped her into next year. Banks says she’s the boss, yet she’s lost twice now. Bayley should interfere in their match next week, if you ask me.

T.J. Perkins defeated Tony Nese

How would I have booked this? Simple. Nese should’ve had Perkins down and in a pinning predicament, but Kendrick should’ve ran out and beat up Nese, and Perkins. He should’ve said that he should be getting a title shot, and that the championship is his! But that didn’t happen. That would’ve built a feud with Nese for interfering, and built a further point in the Perkins story, with 2 competitors fighting each other for a shot at the title, meanwhile Perkins could wrestle others. But nope. Logic is out, and Nese loses after showcasing incredible moves out there. The crowd was chanting CM Punk, so apparently they weren’t into this match.

Match Rating: 3 out of 5

Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho defeated Enzo and Cass

So let me get this straight, Enzo and Cass are just big mouthed losers? They are as good as the Club Sandwich boys. They lose again. Owens and Jericho continue to build, and the jobbers with mouths are lost in the shuffle yet again. Who cares?! This was a horrendous show, with a lackluster main event, but hey, that’s just my 2 cents.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Overall, Raw was lackluster on all levels. The sole exception was Stephanie McMahon stomping all over Mick Foley’s balls. She took them, showed them to him, then stomped them out. Great. The show wasn’t going to be about the GM’s and the Commissioners etc, oh well. Raw sucked. The debates were stupid, but that’s just my two cents.

WWE Clash of Champions 2016 Results and Review The Women Steal The Show

The Women Put on A Clinic of Pro-Wrestling
Last night, Indianapolis was the host for Clash of Champions 2016. This event was in my home town and I decided against going. Tickets were as low as a few bucks, but I instead ate pizza and stayed home. I saw the whole thing, and well, here are my thoughts on what went down from Nap Town.

WWE Clash of Champions Results


Nia Jax def. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Match)
Chris Jericho def. Sami Zayn
WWE Cruiserweight Champion T.J. Perkins def. Brian Kendrick
Cesaro vs. Sheamus ended in a No Contest (Match No. 7 in Best of Seven Series)
Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
Raw Women's Champion Charlotte def. Sasha Banks and Bayley
Roman Reigns def. United States Champion Rusev
WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens def. Seth Rollins

WWE Clash of Champions Review


Nia Jax def. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Match)

Nia Jax was actually showing that she wasn’t a monster. Alicia Fox put on a showcase of moves, and really took it to Nia. I was surprised with how much offense she was given. Nia Jax would eventually stop everything and get a nice Samoan drop on Alicia Fox and the win. Nice opener.

Match Rating: 3 out of 5

Chris Jericho def. Sami Zayn

Jericho and Zayn put on a strong showing. However, Sami Zayn losing yet again, is dumb. Zayn can’t win, he’s in Ziggler status now. That’s all. Entertaining match, Jericho wins, stays strong, and that’s the end. I love how Jericho is burying talent. He just can’t lose can he? I love it, you stupid idiots.

Match Rating: 3 out of 5

WWE Cruiserweight Champion T.J. Perkins def. Brian Kendrick

I heard several podcasts trash this. I didn’t get it. Why don’t people like the cruiserweights? Seriously!? I wish I had a large audience to discuss this. Unfortunately, I don’t. These two put on a good show, and I liked it. It seemed a little toned down, and from what I hear, they have already told the guys in this division to tone it down. Kendrick looked great in defeat, and Perkins is amazing. These guys should be opening the shows and becoming mid-card entertainment, like in the WCW days. They aren’t ready for the main event, if you ask me.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Cesaro vs. Sheamus ended in a No Contest (Match No. 7 in Best of Seven Series)

I didn’t want to see this. I didn’t care about it. There was a non-finish when they seemed to injure one another. I will say this much, Cesaro needs to stop doing suicide dives. In fact, ALL talent should stop doing them. It’s so watered down, like the DDT. It’s stupid.

Match Rating: 1 out of 5

Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson

The Club Sandwich boys are nothing more than losers. They lose every time. There’s nothing good about this. I didn’t like the match. The New Day won because they cheated when Xavier hit one of the Sandwich boys got hit in the head with a trombone. That’s it. This was stupid. The Club Sandwich is done. Go back to japan, right? Yep. I’m tired of the New Day, I need new Champions!

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Raw Women's Champion Charlotte def. Sasha Banks and Bayley

Match of the night folks. These ladies put on a showcase. I love Dana Brooke, lucky Ziggler is banging her. Charlotte and Sasha’s story continued, but Bayley injected herself into the match and put on a showcase. The story these women told, wow, if you missed it, go back and see it. Everything to me made sense, Charlotte’s moonsault is the number one in the WWE right now. Bayley lost after getting two big boots to the head, and Sasha got thrown off the apron. I loved this. Charlotte is one hell of a Champion, I hope Ric is proud, I’m sure he is.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Roman Reigns def. United States Champion Rusev

Roman Reigns won a boring match. I hated it, I don’t think he’s good, both these idiots suck. No thanks.

Match Rating: 1 out of 5

WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens def. Seth Rollins

This was not half bad. However, I’m tired of the main events showing so many kick outs. The story that the guys tell just seems dumb. I recall better stories, but I will say this much, this match was way better than any Dean Ambrose match I’ve seen this year. Yeah, I said it. Owens did well here, Rollins looked injured at one point, he was getting thrown around a great deal. Jericho would come out, the ref would get bumped, and Owens would retain the title. Good match. Nice sexual tension with Stephanie and Seth, though. Look for that angle to play, man, what a lucky dude Trips, I’m just saying.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Overall, Clash of Champions was a fun night of wrestling. I do not regret not going. I would rather not have to deal with nose bleed seats or anything like that. I liked this ppv. I would give the whole thing a 3 out of 5. Good, not great, with some solid wrestling, and some ok moments. That’s that.

WWE Monday Night Raw Review


Monday Night Raw was a chore, even for the HULU edition. I had a very hard time getting through the show. I do not have cable, so I did not get to see the 3 hour showcase, but from what I hear online, it wasn’t that good at all. Here are my thoughts on the HULU edition, since it cut out a LOT.

Seth Rollins Fought Rusev to a Double Count Out

This wasn’t half bad. Rusev and Rollins put on an OK match. I liked the fact that Rollins did not injure Rusev, and didn’t get him killed either. Other than that, I was wondering how they would keep both men strong. What ended up happening, however, was the two fought each other to a double count out and that was that. Not a terrible match, but not great either.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Charlotte and Dana Brooke defeated Sasha Banks and Bayley

They turned the WWE Championship match for this weekend into a three way dance. I live in Indianapolis, and will not be attending at all. Oh well. This match wasn’t bad, but it was far from good as well. It featured the same spots as before, and it seemed a little rushed to me. Dana and Charlotte would get the win, and that’s it.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Chris Jericho Throws Logic Out of the Window

Chris Jericho came out to put people on his list of grievances. One minute he is writing off everyone on the roster, then joins those same idiots as part of a tag team! What the hell?

Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day, Sami Zayn, Enzo Amore & Big Cass def. Chris Jericho, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson & The Shining Stars

A fun match, nothing to write home about though. I was tired, but this match was even more tired. They all phoned it in, with the spots you’d expect from a pay per view opener.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Brian Kendrick defeated Gran Metalik, Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann

The winner would get a title shot this weekend, and I loved it. I loved how the match was paced, and I like how Kendrick looked strong amidst the others. I did notice that the move sets were toned down. Turns out, that the WWE has asked these guys to tone down the jumps and what not. After a full classic tournament where the guys were flying around the ring, they are muted already? Whatever. Look for the division to get more of a Chavo Guerrero style wrestling program rather than what you saw in the CWC.

Roman Reigns defeated Kevin Owens in a Steel Cage Match

Here’s the thing. The announce team kept talking about how Kevin Owens was a coward for trying to escape. But Roman Reigns wins by escape!?! What the hell? Where is the logic? Then Seth Rollins comes out to save Roman Reigns for a beat down? Why? WHY DOES SETH ROLLINS CARE? Seriously, what does he care if Roman Reigns is getting a beat down? WHAT THE HELL?

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Monday Night Raw made absolutely no sense. Seriously, it made no sense for Seth Rollins, it made no sense to have sexual tension between Stephanie McMahon and Seth Rollins, it was a crap show with a crap build for their pay per view this weekend. I almost bought a ticket, I’m glad I did not. What a load of garbage.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 12, 2016 Results and Review: The Fat Ass Champion

Kevin Owens Is Fat
This past week’s Raw was live from Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD. It was not a great show, and even the HULU version that I’m reviewing was absolutely tough to watch. I had to really pay attention, even though I didn’t want to, and well, this is the result that you get.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 12, 2016 Results


Raw General Manager Mick Foley addressed the Raw Women’s Championship situation
Sasha Banks def. Bayley and Dana Brooke to become No. 1 contender to the Raw Women’s Championship
Bo Dallas def. Brandon Scott
Sami Zayn appeared on “The Highlight Reel”
Cesaro def. Sheamus; trails Best of Seven Series 3-2
Alicia Fox vs. Nia Jax ended in a No Contest
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson def. Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day
Jinder Mahal def. Jack Swagger
Epico def. Enzo Amore
WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens def. Roman Reigns to keep him out of the Clash of Champions main event

WWE Monday Night Raw September 12, 2016 Review


Again, this is a review of the HULU edition since I don’t have cable. I tried getting it once, and watching 3 hours of Raw was horrendous to say the least.

Sasha Banks defeated Bayley and Dana Brooke in a triple threat match

Say what you will about Dana Brooke, but she put on a showcase in this match. She took some serious bumps from Sasha Banks, and Bayley. The match had her getting thrown around the ring, and also shoving the other two away. Lots of great bumps to the floor, and good overall pushes. I also love Brooke’s look, and would love to hang out with her, but alas, it will never happen. She’s underrated, if you ask me. Sasha Banks won a hard fought battle here, and it was a good showing to see, even if Bayley didn’t get the big win here. Banks will face off against Charlotte at Clash of Champions.

Match Rating 4 out of 5

Cesaro defeated Sheamus

I hate the notion of a best of 7, especially with two performers that bore me to tears. This is a boring match, but oh well. Cesaro won, and that’s that.

Match Rating 1 out of 5

Kevin Owens defeated Roman Reigns

This was the highlight of the HULU edition for sure. Kevin Owens, the fat champion, won against Roman Reigns. This was a fun back and forth match, but it had Seth Rollins interfere, Mick Foley get mad at him, and that’s about it. Good back and forth, nice elements, Owens can make anyone look great in the ring.

Match Rating 3 out of 5

Monday Night Raw wasn’t grand, but it wasn’t terrible either. Good showing by the women, too bad they are opening the show instead of closing it. Oh well.


WWE Backlash 2016 Results and Review

Dean Ambrose's Reign Was Worse Than Any Roman Reigns Title Reign
This past weekend, WWE had a ppv that I didn’t get to watch at first, but eventually figured it out and saw it. I also caught that CM Punk fight, if you can call it that. Good stuff. Here’s what I thought about the big one from Smackdown Live.

WWE Backlash 2016 Results


Baron Corbin def. Apollo Crews
Becky Lynch won the Six-Pack Challenge to become the first SmackDown Women’s Champion
The Usos def. The Hype Bros in a Second Chance Challenge
Intercontinental Champion The Miz def. Dolph Ziggler
Kane def. Bray Wyatt in a No Holds Barred Match
Heath Slater & Rhyno def. The Usos to become the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions
AJ Styles def. Dean Ambrose to win the WWE World Championship

WWE Backlash 2016 Review


Baron Corbin def. Apollo Crews

Apollo Crews has been brought up to the big leagues to be a jobber. The WWE is not good at putting together good talent, sometimes, huh? Whatever.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Becky Lynch won the Six-Pack Challenge to become the first SmackDown Women’s Champion

Holy Crap! The women actually put on a showcase of great wrestling. There’s a lot to this, and if you didn’t see it, go back and watch it. Smackdown’s women are great, and I dare say better than Raw. I couldn’t believe the timing on some of this stuff, and it was definitely worth their position on the night.

Matching Rating: 4 out of 5

The Usos def. The Hype Bros in a Second Chance Challenge

Boring.

Match Rating: 1 out of 5

Intercontinental Champion The Miz def. Dolph Ziggler

The Miz put on one of his best matches ever. He was mocking Daniel Bryan the whole time. Ziggler at this point is nothing more than a jobber. Good performance, but Miz once again shows why he’s been in the ring for over a decade, without injury. There were some brutal spots here, though, so good overall showing.

Match Rating: 3 out of 5

Kane def. Bray Wyatt in a No Holds Barred Match

Orton couldn’t compete so Kane took his place. There was only one good spot here and it was Bray Wyatt doing a senton on Kane through a table. Other than that, nothing. Wyatt is the eater of pins at this point.

Match Rating: 2 out of 5

Heath Slater & Rhyno def. The Usos to become the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions

This was awesome, but not because of the match. The match was ok, but it was Heath Slater getting so much crowd reaction that made this one. Rhyno and Slater managed to pull off the big victory, and I’m glad it went down this way. This has been the most compelling long-term story line that the WWE has created in a long time. Slater and Rhyno work very well together and I’m glad that this turned out to be a contract winning match.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

AJ Styles def. Dean Ambrose to win the WWE World Championship

Now this was great match, in fact, one of the best matches I’ve seen in a long time. This was a back and forth affair, but really, it was Aj Styles proving why he is the best in the world right now. Ambrose was resting on his laurels again, doing the same old moves he does, but there were shining moments. However, it was Styles that was making this a compelling match up overall. I loved it. Lots of great moments, and the Styles Clash finish was great. Styles is your new champion!

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Overall Backlash was very good, I liked it. It was like watching a glorified Tuesday night Smackdown, but overall it had some great wrestling. The last two matches were my favorites, and they really seemed to drive a good feeling into the crowd. Good stuff.
