  1. This was the big main event and it had the big match feel to it. Heel Sasha is much better than face Sasha and we get instances of heel Sasha here with her constantly going after Bianca's braid to use it against her, including her going after Bianca's braid and using it to keep her close so she can punt her constantly with one of those punts landing on the mouth. We get a big Sasha dive early on which Bianca catches and roles through and we get one of the most impressive press slams ever with Bianca carrying Sasha up the stairs and tossing her inside the ring from the ring apron. Sasha is also someone who can get wild on offense like Manami Toyota and she will just throw herself recklessly as she did here when she just absolutely launched herself knee first into the guardrail in a Meteora attempt. Belair's athleticism is always a sight to behold as she will just casually pull out a running shooting star press and a big 450 splash that gets countered by Sasha's knees. The Bank Statement with Sasha using Belair's braid was a great spot and the nearfall false finish from the second 450 splash was great. It really gave the impression Sasha was going to retain at that point. The hair whip is one of the coolest and most brutal moves in wrestling as Sasha had a brutal welt on her ribs from it (hope they continue to save this for her big matches). The finish had people crying and jumping out of their seats. This was a homerun. One of the best women's matches in North American wrestling history.
  2. 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 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.
  3. This was soooo much better than I was expecting it to be. I'm not a big Rollins fan but I would be lying if I said he wasn't good here. The lead in to this was built around Cesaro's giant swing and how he'd humiliated Rollins with it in recent weeks so of course there's a giant swing tease in this that gets the crowd going nuts. Cesaro's main offense is usually a variety of European uppercuts and Rollins hurts Cesaro's shoulder with a buckle bomb so we get portions of Cesaro's main offense being shutdown briefly due to it. There's two really neat transitions here that look like throwbacks to transitions Cesaro would do with Quack for Ian Rotten in IWA Mid-South; in one Cesaro tries to take Rollins on a ride with a quebradora and he ends up hitting a great looking Neutralizer and in the other Rollins counters the Neutralizer and he lands a pedigree. Rollins also nails Cesaro with a vicious elbow to the back of the head that looks even more vicious in the slow motion replay. The finishing stretch if great with Cesaro hitting a brutal elevated European uppercut, followed up by his wild spinning torture rack bomb and a big giant swing to give Cesaro his big WrestleMania win. Really good match.
  4. Both guys have been really good throughout the year and both guys brought it here and put on together a hot opening heavyweight title match. This didn't have the stiff strikes or potatoes the Drew/Sheamus match had but it had a bunch of big bombs from both guys. There's also a wild dive from Drew in this which unfortunately got brushed off by Lashley and MVP and McIntyre just splatted back first on the outside. That no sell kip up from Drew to the second spinebuster felt very Shawn Michael'ish and was something I could have done without but the crowd went nuts for it so it worked. The drama and false finish with the kimura was a great and the referee stoppage to the Hurt Lock was great as well. Very good match.
  5. Another match that was much better than I was expecting it to be. They start with the New Day as faces and AJ and Omos as heels but the roles are reversed in this as the New Day refuse to wrestle Omos early on and they put an extensive beatdown on AJ and constantly cut him off from tagging in Omos. Eventually the anticipation to seeing Omos make his in ring debut is built up and we get a hot tag that delivers with Omos coming in absolutely wrecking the New Day; he catches Kofi with a Volk Han aikido wristlock throw and he absolutely crushes Woods' ribes with a brutal rib breaker. The Headshrinkers like assisted springboard Phenomenal Forearm was a great looking spot as was the big finishing bomb from Omos on Kofi. Another match that I would say exceeded expectations on this card.
  6. Yeah, that is not a thread title I thought I would ever be typing on here. This wasn't an all-time classic or anything but it far beyond exceeded expectations and is one of the best celebrity wrestling matches ever. Bad Bunny busting out a wild counter into an armdrag, La Casita like he's Negro Casas, a headscissors and a Destroyer was wild. Also his selling was far better than it had any right to be. Priests hot tag offense was on point and I would say he's improved a ton and been much better since moving up to the main roster. This is a match they obviously rehearsed a ton at the Performance Center before but kudos to everyone involved, specially the Miz who was clearly guiding this in the ring.
  7. This was so much better than I was expecting it to be. I remember being cold on Raquel before she got repackaged and she was working mostly Florida live event as Reina Gonzalez. She never really stood out and was always much bigger than most of the other women on the roster but she seemed to be afraid to work like a big girl. Since being repackaged and paired up with Dakota Kai, she's been great. I would have preferred if this was more of a David vs. Goliath type match with Raquel working on top for the most part and Io getting sprints in of her flashy offense instead of having Io work on top for most of the match but I still think this was good as Io went balls to the wall here and busted out some wild stuff such as the neat armdrag from the 619 and the big dive off the top of the skull from the entrance. Dug Raquel rushing to the outside after the moonsault and that lariat after the palm strike was a fantastic way to setup the finish. I'm not a massive fan of Io but this maybe the best singles match I've seen her have in NXT this far.
  8. Entirely different match from WALTER/Ciampa as this is more of a straight up hoss fight. Rampage brings the fight to WALTER and it's a 15+ minute bomb fest between these two. Match is worked evenly as it should be with Rampage looking like a threat to WALTER. That Doctor Bomb from Rampage was pretty nasty as WALTER landed on his shoulder. They go a bit overboard in the finishing stretch with the big move 2.99 kickouts but I still dug this and thought it was very good. Would like to see them run this one back once they are fans back in the arenas.
  9. I'm a big fan of WALTER but I feel he works way to evenly with much smaller opponents at times (such as the A-Kid match from NXT UK earlier this year) but that didn't feel as the case here as Ciampa is pretty jacked and almost as tall as him. WALTER chopping the table and tearing it in half was perfectly executed, as was WALTER's selling of his injured hand moving as he added the little touches (such as not being able to put on an STF, not being able to hold onto the bridge, having to use his other hand and clutching his own head to keep on a rear naked choke, etc). Ciampa using endless lariats to chop down WALTER (who had to rely on the ropes to stay up) was great. I get why some folks may have been bugged by Ciampa kicking out of the two powerbombs but WALTER using a chop to win puts over the brutality of them even more. Great match.
  10. Perfect David vs. Goliath type match with both guys playing their role excellently. This maybe the best Mark Henry match ever. He is incredible here working as a monster heel using his strength to just steamroll and maul Rey. And as we all know, it's well documented Rey is an all-time great who excels in multiple roles so you know he's great here working from underneath. Rey using his speed to chop down Henry with a variety of 619's to different parts of the body was fantastic. However that finish with Henry just sitting up from the frog splash and then just brutally slamming down Rey was picture perfect. Very good sub 10 minute TV match.
  11. Here we get our usual Drew Gulak Main Event appearance. Unfortunately it's against Humberto Carrillo again and unfortunately this is probably the lesser of their matches so far this year. This was more of a Carrillo display (more so than their previous match) and it felt kind of cold and flat. Gulak seemed somewhat uninspired, but we did get a cool flying kick counter into an ankle lock and hellacious modified vertical suplex near the finish but unfortunately it gets blown off for the eventual finish. Really wish Gulak would be featured more on SmackDown and would get paired with Daniel Bryan after WrestleMania again as he was great during that run and it never received the proper culmination it deserved.
  12. 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.
  13. Fun, intense 5 minute mid card NXT TV match and the Karrion Kross match I've enjoyed the most and that's partly due to how good Oney is at working these. Oney's fireball brief comebacks always deliver as he brings this intense wrecking ball style offense with some nasty slaps and some wild running European uppercuts. Kross always seems timid on offense and you can tell he's always holding back, but Oney does a neat job of bumping for his 1-2 throws. Not a MOTYC or anything, but a fun TV match.
  14. Gulak's Main Event run continues this week with another brief 6 minute singles match against a former 205 Live frequent opponent. It's always cool watching Gulak sporadically pop up as he always delivers. This is mostly Gulak working as a base and catching Tozawa's offense for the most part and the highlight is Tozawa running on the ring apron and then diving on top of a Gulak off the ring steps with a cannonball. There's a nasty Gulak slam on here always. Pretty easy way to spend 6 minutes.
  15. WWE continues putting on quality heavyweight matches featuring real heavyweights just throwing bombs and working extra snug on TV on a a monthly basis. This wasn’t quite McIntyre/Sheamus levels, but this was still good. The early mat work with Lashley just grounding Sheamus and roughing him up with his forearms before dropping bombs on him from the knee on belly mount was great and set the tone for most of the match. Sheamus also got some brutality in this as he was dropping some clubs on Lashley with some knee strikes on a grounded a Lashley that looked like they were going to crack his skull and some brutal 12-6 elbows that were clearly hitting Lashley in the jaw and chest as your could clearly hear the thud from these. Lashley also rushed into the post shoulder first like he was going for a tope and got caught which was a pretty wild bump. The highlight was the brutal flying knee during the last few minutes of this from Sheamus into a charging Lashley that dropped Lashley and to be honest I’m surprised didn’t KO him as it connected nearly flush on the jaw. Just a brutal match as you can see the effects of it reflected on Sheamus' body language near the end.
  16. After their MOTYC last week, they follow up with a No DQ match and you can't help but get excited for this only to be letdown as they can't follow up. Last week we got a stiff heavyweight match with some potatoes being thrown and this week we got an underwhelming no DQ weapon heavy WWE style brawl. Instead of relying on stiff strikes like last week, they relied on using a kendo stick. Drew took a big table bump, which was neat, but nowhere near as brutal as the big table bump Sheamus took last week where he landed viciously on the edge of the table. There was a great looking punch to the head from McIntyre which you could clearly hear connect a big knee from Sheamus, but not much else I dug here. The finish was lame as it featured a stair assisted double KO. This is obviously building to a PPV match which I hope is a standard 2/3 falls match and not a lame gimmick match similar to this one.
