  1. I believe this is the first time these two have faced each other on WWE TV and it was a good match. The WWE RAW TV match style has noticeably changed this year and I've honestly have been enjoying it. It seems more big bomb centered with actually heavyweights just coming in and ragdolling each other while throwing stiff strikes. This was worked excellently in that vein. They did a neat spot with Riddle kicking McIntyre on the HIAC welts on his back and McIntyre just splats him with a stiff lariat. I also feel McIntyre's punches don't get the credit they deserve. Sure he's not Lawler or Dundee when it comes to throwing hands but his punches look like they actually connect. Its also pretty impressive seeing McIntyre just manhandle Riddle and toss him around with wheelbarrow throws. He also hit a great looking deadlift suplex. The highlight spot for me was the backslide counter into the Future Shock DDT. I also thought McIntyre's selling of HIAC injuries was great as he would wince and clutch at his backs or ribs whenever Riddle got a throw or landed any big offense that hurt his back. The finish was on point with Riddle pulling a flash pin. Not on par with either ones matches against Sheamus but this was still a good match.
  2. This was way better than anyone expected it to be. The early gritty collar and elbow tie up set the tone for this match. Riddle showed he was the superior grappler early on and Woods used power to hit some vertical drop suplexes on Riddle including a great looking suplex from an arm bar counter. Woods also pulled out an impressive press slam into a gut buster. The highlight though was Riddle dead lifting Woods from the ring apron while he was standing on the second rope and hitting a nasty German suplex that surprising enough didn't end with a neck injury or fractured arm. The finish was pretty clever with Riddle hitting an unexpected RKO. Woods singles match I've ever seen.
  3. Matt Riddle defends the WWE United States Title Given the chemistry and some of the past matches these two have had before, I was super hyped to see what these two would on the big stage. Unfortunately this didn't reach the level of their TV matches which were much better as they were much more condensed. I still dug this as the work was tight and snug and we got some great bits such as the great knee counter to the Riddle flip from the ring apron inside the ring. That entire White Noise botch off the top rope was obviously silly but the big Bruiser Brody like King Kong Knee Drop off the top rope from Sheamus was great and looked like it would crush Riddle's jaw. Sheamus has a pretty great year, so it was cool seeing him win and I look forward to seeing where his runs leads to.
  4. These two have good chemistry together and have put on quality matches throughout the past 8 or so months. While this isn't on par with some of their previous matches, it's still good. The early mat exchanges are quite gritty with Sheamus just grinding his forearms in Riddle's face aggressively and Riddle catching him in a pretty deep rear naked choke that you can see his forearm clearly under Sheamus throat and Sheamus tapping his arm to let him know he needs to loosen up. Thankfully the WWE truly seems to be done with thigh slaps as now folks are more focused on putting a little heat behind their strikes and these two threw some bombs here. I'm usually not sold on big Spanish fly spots as they take forever to setup, but here Riddle just runs up the ropes and flips immediately without them taking forever to coordinate it. I wasn't big on Riddle's brief comeback as a lot of his strikes looked somewhat flimsy during that segment, but the finish with the big White Noise on the ring apron looked brutal and the finish made sense as they can build to a rematch. Not a MOTYC or anything but still another quality RAW heavyweight TV match.
  5. Good sub 10 minute TV match with Lashley working as the big bruiser and Riddle taking some wild bumps. That corner bump on the outside was nasty. That finishing sequence was creative and neat. I'm all for these two feuding over the US title. Riddle has been coming along nicely on RAW with some quality singles TV matches against Sheamus last year and now this one against Lashley.
