WWE Monday Night Raw September 25, 2017 Results and Review The Enzo Amore Show

Enzo Gets A Beating - SRC WWE DOT COM
Just when you thought I went to sleep instead of watching Monday Night Raw, I’m back with another review. This time around we’re going to be looking back at the September 25, 2017 show that had the Bullet Club invading the WWE. Actually, they just stood outside and tried to get attention. This wasn’t nearly as big as what the WWE did to WCW, and comparisons to that are stupid, because ROH and other companies aren’t nearly as big as WWE or WCW for that matter.

The show was live from Ontario, California, just a stones throw away from what I used to live, and it was heated. The venue isn’t that big, so there were probably no empty seats. The show kicked off nicely, and put things into high gear, at least for the HULU version, which is what I’m going to be discussing here.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 25, 2017 Results and Review

Roman Reigns and The Miz started off the show with The Miz getting the better of Roman on the mic, and the crowd firmly behind Miz and his cronies. The MIz at one point decided to just leave after berating Roman, but Kurt Angle came out and set up a couple of matches that features the trio, and that’s the crux of the show.

Matt Hardy and Jason Jordan defeated The MIztourage

The Miztourage are nothing but jobbers. I guess there are worse ways to make a living, but they lost handedly by Matt Hardy and Jason Jordan. This was a fast paced match, and it got the crowd going wild, which is always a great thing. I had a little fun watching this, and you probably enjoyed this one too. It’s a good match, although I’m tired of seeing the Miztourage getting pummeled each week. At least the Flock and the Nest had wins when they were with Raven. These guys aren’t even getting a second look.

Elias defeated Apollo Crews

This was not shown on HULU.

Braun Strowman attacked Curt Hawkins

This was just awful. This was absolutely just bad. Hawkins gets beat up, and still buried. I guess there’s worse ways to make a living, right?

Braun Strowman defeated Dean Ambrose

This match was what you’d expect, Strowman plowed through Ambrose. Ambrose had a little offense, but not nearly as much as you’d expect, and Strowman wins again. Next week he will face off against Seth Rollins and win again. However, I don’t find him to be a formidable opponent for anyone because Lesnar beat him clean in the middle of the ring at the PPV.

Mickie James came out to fight Alexa Bliss

Mickie James didn’t get much of a crowd reaction when she confronted Alexa Bliss. I guess this is the next feud? Ok. James is on her way out, I can sense it. Bliss is great here, and I like her.

Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus

Sheamus had most of the offense in this match, and it wasn’t that bad. Rollins is boring to me, and very predictable, as is Ambrose. Sheamus got cocky at one point and lost when Rollins was able to take advantage of several mistakes that Sheamus had. Not a terrible match, but far from the best.

Roman Reigns defeated The Miz

This was not much of a match, Roman Reigns beat down MIz and won relatively well. Even with the Miztourage helping out, Reigns wasn’t going down, and the Miz lost clean. After the match the trio beat the holy crap out of Reigns with a chair, and the other guys from the shield did not show up. So screw them. I still hate Reigns.

Finn Balor defeated Goldust

This was not shown on HULU

Bayley and Sasha Banks defeated Nia Jax and Emma

This was not shown on HULU

The Cruiserweight Division gave Enzo Amore a Beat Down

Enzo Amore came out and cut a scathing promo, but the 205 Live crew came out and confronted him. Neville talked a great deal then beat the tar out of Amore, and then the rest of the crew came down and beat him up. Then Braun Strowman came out and beat him up too. Either way, Amore is getting beat down and taking a lot of heat. I’ll definitely be tuning in to 205 Live to see how this works itself out. However, the idea of an outcast as champion, and the whole crew beating him up is not my favorite of stories. I want him to overcome.

So there you have it, Raw was ok at best. I didn’t really see any furtherment of story lines, and according to the Tuna Metlzer, the WWE doesn’t care about the stories because they are making money hand over fist regardless of what they do. That is showing with this lack luster show that was very long, even on HULU. Not a great night of wrestling, if you can call it that anymore.

WWE No Mercy 2017 Results and Review

WWE No Mercy 2017 - SRC WWE dot com
WWE No Mercy 2017 was in Los Angeles this past Sunday, and I was watching it live on the WWE Network. I wanted to be in Los Angeles for this, but I blew my proverbial load on going to Las Vegas and Spokane earlier this year. That was a fun trip, and I loved the experience, but here I was stuck without being able to fly out. It doesn’t matter, though. WWE No Mercy came through with some epic matches, but honestly, it wasn’t that grand overall. But there were a few notes to consider.

WWE No Mercy 2017 Results and Review

Elias defeated Apollo Crews

This match started the show, and it wasn’t that bad. Elias is a big guy, and Apollo is so athletic, that these guys put on a good match. Elias definitely has something going for himself. Apollo is a classic character, but he’s floundering with a lackluster crowd out there. Elias gets the win here, and I will walk with Elias any time!

The Miz defeated Jason Jordan

The Los Angeles crowd loved The Miz. The Miz really gave Jason Jordan a good match, and the two were definitely grand overall. It was a fun overall match with Jordan throwing a lot of weight around. The Miz was able to get the win with outside interference, and I liked that a lot. Miz winning garnered a huge pop from the crowd.

Finn Balor defeated Bray Wyatt

Balor had the worst outfit on. I couldn’t stop laughing at it. Wyatt eats another pin. Are you surprised? This match wasn’t that bad, but it also wasn’t that good. Wyatt threw down some great offense, but Balor wins again, and now I hope he can move on to something else. He should be challenging for the title he never lost.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defeated Cesaro and Sheamus

Another classic match from these guys. Cesaro was able to throw in a great deal of offense, and spots that looked amazing. Cesaro knocked out two teeth at one point, and Ambrose looked to have messed up his shoulder at one point. The match was fun, fast paced, hard hitting, and just made sense a lot. There was a lot of story telling here, and I loved it. This was the best match of the night if you ask me. Great back and forth, and lots of fans going nuts.

Alexa Bliss defeated Sasha Banks, Bayley, Nia Jax, and Emma

Alexa Bliss wins! I’m a fan, and while the rest of the girls put on a good show, they didn’t get the win here. Bliss won with her DDT, and the women really teamed up to take out Nia Jax. Bayley and Sasha worked together for a while, then split up for a moment, and Emma was just getting beat up a lot. Nia Jax took some incredible bumps in this match, and it was awesome.

Roman Reigns defeated John Cena

Wow. Just wow. Cena threw every single thing at Roman Reigns. 4 Attitude Adjustments, Reigns took everything and he still kicked out. Roman Reigns hit the super man punch and a spear, and it was over. Roman Reigns gets credit here for taking everything and the kitchen sink from Cena. Also, for almost breaking his neck spearing Cena through a table. This was great, and the two worked well together. Roman Reigns won clean, in the middle, and that was that. Cena looked to be retiring much like he did in May, but that was the end of this match.

Enzo Amore defeated Neville to Win The WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Neville beat the hell out of Enzo. This match was swift, and after some time, a kick to the nuts garnered Enzo the big win and the title. I kid you not. I’m not sure what’s going on with the Cruiserweights, but this should make for an interesting 205 Live this week, right? Neville deserves better.

Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman

This was not a great match, it was slow and lumbering. But I will give Brock credit for taking a lot of offense. Braun Strowman gave him a decent offering, and Lesnar seemed to be in trouble several times, before Braun Strowman hit many powerslams, but they weren’t enough. Lesnar hit an F5 and then pinned him, and that was it. He cleanly won, and The Monster was defeated. Sigh. Lesnar phones it in. I’m so sick of this guy. A part timer is the champion? Ugh. So boring.

WWE Smackdown Live September 13, 2017 Results and Review McMahon Show Featuring Wrestlers

Breaking Kendo Sticks - SRC WWE DOT COM
Well, if you ever have a negative thing to say about Vince McMahon, you can now shut the hell up. I’m going to, and you may want to do the same. Why? Well, we will get to this night of Smackdown, live from Las Vegas. I should’ve gone, but eh, I didn’t get to go this time. I did think about it, though, but it just didn’t happen. So let’s get into this showcase of the immortals, or rather, the boring things that happened and the exciting things that also happened.

Kevin Owens Took over

Kevin Owens wasn’t playing around last week when he said he was going to takeover the show, because he certainly did this time around. He showed up and was taking over from the moment he came out to the ring. He was interrupted by Dolph Ziggler at one point, and he praised him. That of course led to the rest of the show, in which Owens would have backstage interactions, and was claiming to be taking over the show or he was going to sue.

Aj Styles defeated Tye Dillinger in the United States Championship Open Challenge

Did you really think that Tye Dillinger was going to get the win here? He did put up a good fight against Aj Styles, but it wasn’t at all what you would call a 4 star classic. In fact, the match went on slightly less time than I imagined it would have gone, and it even had a run in with Baron Corbin. Corbin was able to knock some sense into the two combatants, and wake up Aj Styles because he definitely got some shots from Dillinger. Dillinger pinned the champ a few times, but he couldn’t get that 3, and of course Styles would turn things around and boom, the calf crusher made Dillinger tap out. What a push for Dillinger? The best loser to come through NXT, eh? What a shame.

Jinder Mahal Goes Racist

Jinder Mahal came out and was super racist with running down Nakamura. I guess that’s cool? I don’t know. I like Jinder Mahal’s shirts, and I did like the Singh brother’s comedy act, but this was a bit much. This didn’t need to be on the show at all.

The New Day defeated The Usos in a Sin City Street Fight for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles

The new Day was supposed to be outgunned here but they weren’t because The Usos came at them like it was Day One Ish! See what I did there? Either way, the New Day put on a showcase, and The Usos beat the holy hell out of Big E and Kofi Kingston. The end was going to be similar to that of Summerslam, but alas, things turned out good for the New Day as they were able to garner a pinfall after a lot of punishment. Chairs, kendo stick breaking, and tables all made this match quite good, and of course, the two teams have great chemistry together. The New Day are the new champions! This wasn’t my favorite street fight of all time, but it was good. I think the Cactus Jack and Max Payne street fight with the Nasty Boys was better.

Natalya defeated Naomi in the Smackdown Women’s Championship Match

This wasn’t a great match. It was rushed, and it seemed like they just didn’t give the women enough time to tell a good story. However, James Ellsworth and Carmella were playing a dom and sub thing, and got in the face of Naomi at one point. It didn’t matter, Natalya won with the sharpshooter and that’s the end of this feud, right?

Dolph Ziggler Made Fun of People

This was dumb.

Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable defeated The Hype Bros.

This was a fast match where Shelton did all the work, and the Hype Bros. just lost. It looked like one of them may be turning heel? I don’t know, this division sucks right now. Shelton looked great though.

Kevin Owens Beat Down Vince McMahon

The highlight of this wasn’t the announcement of the Shane McMahon vs Kevin Owens in a Hell in the Cell Match. Sadly. Owens head butted Vince hardway, and then dropped his weight on him from the top, as well as busting open Vince. That brought out Stephanie McMahon dressed like a power ranger, and that was that. I hope Owens goes to the indies, this is a lame feud to me, and this show was lackluster, with only 1 good match, and the rest being filler. Sadly, this is the B show.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 11, 2017 Results and Review A Lopsided Show of Burials

John Cena defeated Brown Shoeman via DQ - SRC WWE DOT COM
Live from Anaheim, California, Monday Night Raw came through and it wasn’t half bad, but it wasn’t half good either. There’s a lot to consider on this show, so I’ll review the HULU version of this show. Raw is very hit or miss, and while I didn’t get to travel to Anaheim for the show, I saw it this morning and drank a beer for breakfast. So let’s discuss the night via HULU’s version of Monday Night Raw for September 11, 2017.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 11, 2017 Results and Review

We got a moment of silence for September 11, 2017. So I won’t say anything about it. Let’s pause.

Roman Reigns defeated Jason Jordan

Jason Jordan once again pushed through the offense of Roman Reigns and delivered a great deal of offense. I was impressed with him, even though the audience may not have cared that much. His rolling Northern Lights Suplex is incredible, and it’s an absolute great thing to watch. Reigns eventually put him away, with a lot of great shots, and his standard offense, but Jordan was not a slouch here, and I liked that. Good work from Jordan, and good for Reigns as well, but the crowd wasn’t into this one. Too bad, it wasn’t a bad match.

John Cena Buries Roman Reigns on the MIC

Once again John Cena buries Roman Reigns on the mic after the match. Oh boy.

Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman Brawl

Paul Heyman came out and started to talk about the upcoming match up that they will have in Los Angeles. Lesnar got beat down, and it was embarrassing. I’m going to predict that the match ends in a disqualification, and Lesnar does not lose his title. I’m so tired of Brock.

Bray Wyatt defeated Goldust

This was not shown on HULU

The Raw Tag Division Brawled

If by division you just mean 2 teams, then yes. Only 2 teams were brawling, maybe 3, but that’s it. That’s the whole division? Ok.

Elias defeated Kalisto

Isn’t Kalisto under 205 pounds? Why is he not on 205 Live? Anyways, this wasn’t shown on HULU.

John Cena defeated Braun Strowman via Disqualification

Not a bad match, if you like Strowman bulldozing Cena. That’s all this was, the majority of the match was Strowman beating down Cena and bouncing back from the offense that the guy threw at him. Cena won via disqualification.

Sasha Banks defeated Emma

This was not shown on HULU

The Miz and Maryse Is Having A Child

Miz TV started and announced that the couple will be having a kid. Good for them. Maryse is beautiful and Miz deserves his success, and obviously having a kid is awesome.

Enzo Amore defeated The Miz via Diqualification

Enzo won this match, but only because he got beat down a great deal. The Miz ran Enzo down on the mic though, and it wasn’t half bad, but this match was another burial of Enzo.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins with The Hardy Boyz defeated Cesaro, Sheamus, Luke Gallows, and Ken Anderson

This wasn’t a half bad match, but the Club Sandwich boys again lose thanks to the former champs running away. Ambrose and Rollins were great, The Hardys are always fun to see, and that’s about it. This wasn’t bad, unless you’re a Club fan, because they got buried yet again.

That’s about it. The show was like a mayonnaise sandwich without a lot of great wrestling. But it was entertaining enough for me to comment on these things briefly. If you saw it, then you know, this wasn’t a bad show, but it wasn’t great either. A little action here was fun, but overall, nothing really got me interested, other than the possibility of a Braun Strowman championship run. Other than that, meh.

This isn’t a show that you have to see. But it’s one that was a little better than the past few weeks.

WWE Smackdown Live September 5, 2017 Results and Review The Longest 2 Hours Ever

Dolph Ziggler Was Lame On Smackdown - SRC WWE DOT COM
I had a lot of work to do before I could watch this show. I did manage to get my work done, and I sat through what seemed like the longest 2 hours of wrestling. I wanted to bang my head against the wall, and the highlight for me was simple, my other half asked me, “Shane McMahon looks roided out, and he’s getting botox too”, and that’s that. Hilarious.

WWE Smackdown Live September 5, 2017 Results and Review

Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens Fought Each Other.

The opening was supposed to be the women’s match, but instead, Owens came out and started to talk on the mic about Shane McMahon. Well, before that, he said he would be the special guest referee. But that didn’t happen. McMahon and Owens jabbed on the mic, and then the two started brawling. McMahon vs. Owens will occur, and I’m not happy about it. What a waste of talent.

Natalya defeated Carmella

A roll up. That’s what happened after James Ellsworth distracted things by dropping the Money In The Bank Briefcase. That led Carmella to get on the mic and yell at him, and said they were finish. He was left crying. Natalya is good, but in this match, she wasn’t that great. A roll up? Really? Sigh.

Aiden English defeated Sami Zayn

Oh man, another roll up! What a waste of both talents. I loved the Vaudevillains, and when I saw them at NXT Takeover, I thought for sure they would get a big push in the main event, but alas, nope.

Shane McMahon was suspended indefinitely.

This was dumb. McMahon is suspended, oh well. Vince McMahon will be on Smackdown next week, in Las Vegas!

Baron Corbin defeated Tye Dillinger

This was a lousy match. Tye Dillinger didn’t come out with his full entrance. Not only that, Corbin was loose and sloppy with his moves. Aj Styles was on commentary, and I think that Corbin is supposed to be next fighting him for the title, but of course, he is not going to get that match until Dilllinger gets a shot next week. This was a boring match, and the Corbin train is done for me.

Carmella Kissed James Ellsworth

Ellsworth must’ve loved this. I would have killed to be in that position, and that’s rad. Oh and he got slapped. But he also got one hell of a kiss, which is what I wish I could get from Carmella. Just saying.

Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Randy Orton

Throughout the night we had vignettes from the two, and they were awkward and terrible. This match wasn’t half bad, but it also wasn’t great. Jinder was watching on, and he cut a promo backstage. Nakamura is great, but only when he’s with good talent, and Orton was up to par. Orton was phoning it in as usual, and after some back and forth, it was Nakamura that got the big win.

The end, right? Yeah, this was a lousy show. Oh! Oh!

Dolph ZIggler Came Out

He was supposed to be doing a new gimmick. Instead he cut a heel promo and then walked away. It’s time for him to get fired. This was a waste.

In this 2 hour show, we had 2 roll ups, a lousy finish with Dillinger, and Nakamura beating Orton to go on to face Jinder Mahal again. Sigh. Just Sigh, this was a terrible night of wrestling, if you can call it that. At least Raw had some good wrestling. Tonight, it wasn’t grand, it just wasn’t grand at all.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 4, 2017 Results and Review Still Too Long of A Show

The Big Show vs. Braun Strowman - SRC WWE.com 
WWE Monday Night Raw was live from Omaha, and while this is the HULU review, I can’t say that I was fully entertained by the condensed version. Why? There was a lot of filler. I could not believe how much filler was placed in the 90 minutes that the show ran. I now present to you the following run down of what I remember from the show, which I just watched this morning. I couldn’t sleep last night, and all I could think about was reviewing this, and posting reviews on other pages, etc. So here we go, the night of wrestling based on the HULU edition of WWE Monday Night Raw.

WWE Monday Night Raw September 5, 2017 Results and Review

John Cena defeated Jason Jordan

Jason Jordan has a lot of talent, I will not take that away from him. However, the people do not care for him, even though he put on a showcase with Cena. Cena is always interesting to watch, especially this late in his career. Jordan got close several times, but perhaps the best spot here was the rolling Northern Lights Suplex to Bridge and pin combination. How Cena kicked out of that one is insane, since it looked devastating. I loved it. Cena wins, of course, but wow, Jordan still can’t get over.

Roman Reigns showed up and tried to trash talk Cena, but was still lambasted by John Cena.

Cesaor and Sheamus defeated Slater and Rhyno

HULU did not show this.

The Miz defeated Jeff Hardy

Not a bad match, but far from the best that these two can throw together. Hardy loses clean here, even after the Miz’s friends and Matt Hardy were thrown out. Not much to say here, a good overall match, but not the best. It was quick and easy for The Miz to get this win, even though Hardy is still looking good out there.

Enzo Amore, Cedric Alexander and Gran Metalik defeated Noam Dar, Tony Nese, and Drew Gulak

HULU did not show this.

Bray Wyatt Showed Up For A Promo

This was dumb. Wyatt challenged Balor, at No Mercy. Ok. I still think Finn is lesser than Alex Wright.

Nia Jax and Emma defeated Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks

This was not a half bad match, but it was really the Nia Jax showcase. She was shown strong against Bliss and Banks, while Emma was getting a lot of the punishment from the unlikely pairing. Jax would get the final laugh, beating up everyone, and dropping people with her Samoan Drop. It was a fun little match, which will cause a 4-way for the title at No Mercy. This was ok at best, but it was entertaining enough.

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defeated The Club Sandwich Boys

HULU did not show this match.

Braun Strowman defeated The Big Show in a Steel Cage Match

This was a good overall match, with Strowman getting the big win. However, Show threw out some top rope moves, took a superplex, and finally a running power slam. Strowman looked strong in defeat, and then threw Show through the side of the cage. This wasn’t half bad, but it didn’t really impress me, since I know far too much about WWE has treated show when he came in. His run in WCW was great, with him doing missile dropkicks from the top rope.

Overall, Raw was in holiday mode. This was a boring night of wrestling, with a few highlights, but overall, it’s a throwaway show with a few good points. I liked the main event, and the women’s match, but that’s about it. I won’t remember this show for anything too crazy, that’s for sure.
