    WWE Elimination Chamber 2019

    Yeah I remember when he wrestled for Ring Of Honor back in the day and a load of young women were at the show who'd never be there otherwise. Him and Matt doing the Broken angle was the only thing that's actually popped a rating on TNA in many years. Don't get this "he isn't a draw" talk, he's one of the few wrestlers nowadays who has a solid drawing case.

    Oh and also booing Bayley & Sasha for winning the tag titles is performative smarkdom at its worst. We wouldn't have women's tag belts at all if it weren't for those two. Fuck outta here with that "they don't deserve it" idiocy.

    WWE Elimination Chamber 2019

    It is so refreshing to see a WWE crowd totally invested in the outcome of a match rather than just wanting it to be good. Kofi! Kofi! Kofi! I also think it's no coincidence that babyface Daniel Bryan was the guy everyone desperately wanted to win the title more than anything else (that Cena match at Summerslam 2013 is rare example of crowds truly getting behind Cena's opponent rather than just chanting Cena sucks), and now he's turned heel they desperately want his opponent to take it from him. All-timer. I might calm down by tomorrow but at the moment I'm ****3/4 on that match. Best Chamber match ever. Even the opening minutes were still really good with Bryan and Joe stiffing each other.

    I thought that was really good except for when The Iconics were dominating everyone with very weak looking offense and being obnoxiously loud about it. Fantastic finish with Sasha having to use her leg to lock in the crossface as her shoulder was hurt.

    WWE/NXT 2010s MOTD List

    I'd throw in Jerry Lawler vs. The Miz as a great emotional match from that 2010-11 period. But nah I don't think it's a serious contender either. WWE just wasn't good in 2010-11.

    WWE/NXT 2010s MOTD List

    Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan was a pretty great match but not a MOTD contender imo, more remarkable for that Bray hasn't had a singles match anywhere near as good ever again. Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn at NXT: Arrival is more worthy of consideration. If I had to do a Top 20 ballot for the decade here's what it'd look like: 1. Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena - Extreme Rules 2012 2. CM Punk vs. John Cena - Money In The Bank 2011 3. Andrade Cien Almas vs. Johnny Gargano - NXT Takeover: Philadelphia 4. AJ Styles vs. John Cena - Royal Rumble 2017 5. The Shield vs. The Wyatts - Elimination Chamber 2014 6. Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena - Summerslam 2013 7. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks - NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 8. DIY vs. The Revival - NXT Takeover: Toronto 9. Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns - Wrestlemania 31 10. Brock Lesnar vs. CM Punk - Summerslam 2013 11. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks - NXT Takeover: Respect 12. Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H - Wrestlemania 30 13. Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura - NXT Takeover: Dallas 14. AJ Styles vs. Roman Reigns - Extreme Rules 2016 15. Adrian Neville vs. Sami Zayn - NXT Takeover: R-Evolution 16. AJ Styles vs. Brock Lesnar - Survivor Series 2017 17. Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa - NXT Takeover: New Orleans 18. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks - NXT Takeover: Unstoppable 19. CM Punk vs. The Undertaker - Wrestlemania 29 20. Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks - Raw 11/28/16 Sheamus' matches against The Big Show (Hell In A Cell 2012) and Daniel Bryan (Extreme Rules 2012) just miss out but are certainly worth checking out.
  7. I've watched the final segment of Raw now. Was it just me up did Charlotte get almost no reaction when she came out taking Becky's place at Mania? The camera cut to the fans in the arena and they just looked bored. And that same crowd had just earlier been loudly cheering Becky, booed HHH & Stephanie and gave a loud mixed reaction to Ronda.
  8. And in weirder news, WWE are promoting Dean Ambrose vs. Nia Jax for a house show the week after.
  9. I suspect this isn't being talked about elsewhere because it doesn't tie in with popular internet narratives, but the huge drop in female viewership the last few months coincides almost exactly with Roman Reigns leaving the show. Raw losing its Very Handsome top male star being the main cause seems pretty logical to me.
  10. The match will be fine with Bayley/Sasha being the centrepiece. They've had good matches with everyone in there except Tamina.
  11. The Shield was actually used as a vehicle to get Dean Ambrose over as a singles star. He's the one who got most of the promo time, the singles championship, match with The Undertaker, planned feud with Foley etc... Also worth noting the only times in WWE when tag teams were main eventing PPVs were the Two Man Power Trip in 2001, DX vs. Legacy/JeriShow in 2009 and Evolution vs. The Shield. Note the common denominator. Tag team wrestling can be main-event material when they want to present it as such.
  12. By all reports KENTA/Hideo was set to win the NXT Championship from Kevin Owens in Japan before he got injured and was replaced by Finn Balor. History could have been so different.
  13. That WWE have released a statement announcing Dean Ambrose is leaving is really really odd. I'm pretty sure they've never done that before. Makes me suspicious it's some elaborate work.
  14. Very good fun opener. The Roddy/Kyle tag team has been one of the most consistently good acts in WWE the past year or so, can't think of a single match where it felt like they didn't believe. This was War Machine's big night though, they've been good on the indies/NJPW for a while but this was the night where they had to show newcomers what they're all about. Hanson looked great. ***1/2
  15. I thought this was the worst match on the show. Went on way too long and nothing seemed to have any point to it until they get to Gargano tearing up the floor padding, didn't really need 25 minutes to tell that story. Ricochet's obsession with non-stop flipping is getting really tedious to me now, he can be really good sometimes but he's jumping the shark here. One point he sells a superkick by doing a flying backflip through the air, which if you're gonna do that at least sell it like its the most devastating kick to the head ever, only he's literally lifting Gargano up and giving him a body slam 3 seconds later. There is the odd cool spot in this incoherent mess and the ending had direction to it, but overall: Bad. *3/4
