I have no problem with the Team women match. And if things continue the way they've been lately, we'll see Tamina being released in a few days. 

I mean c'mon both Bayley and Becky are great. So I think it was fair.

Black vs Velveteen Dream was my match of the weekend from those shows. Can't wait to see what's next for Black.

 

The Takeover shows give me the feel of the 80's/early 90's when there were 4 big shows and all the TV stuff helped slowly build it instead of the rush jobs they do now.

WWE RAW

Nov. 20, 2017

 

Finally a show with Triple H in it. That stare down with Braun was ridiculous. His face could actually fit in The Monster's beard :lol:. I'm so confused right now. It's I was hit by a Hocus-Pocus manoeuvre last night. So it's Kurt Angle, Triple H, Braun Strowman and Jason Jordan (maybe Kane too) involved in this feud. I was so mad at Kane. I hope Braun's okay (to whom am I kidding, this guy survived in an annihilated ambulance at the Great Balls of Fire PPV and returned the next RAW to stop Roman & Joe's match, so the steel chair on the neck is probably just bread crumbs). I really wanna see a Triple H vs Braun Strowman match at Royal Rumble next year (he's probably semi-retired anyway) and then Kurt Angle vs Triple H at WrestleMania 34.

 

The build up of Roman Reigns started again. Now he has been the Tag Team champ with Seth Rollins, US Champion, WWE Champion, and now the IC Champion. I kinda wish Miz never lost it and his reign should've continued furthermore. He at least should've lost it to a guy like Finn Balor. Now this doesn't only mean that Roman's the IC Champ, but now Seth & Dean are gonna get the RAW Tag Team champs back from The Bar. Vince, you deserve a spank that needs to be shoved up your ass right now :spank:. That Triple Powerbomb on the announce table was brutal too.

 

Looks like the Joe and Balor feud has officially began. It always starts when The Demon gets beaten and then regains momentum later on and squash his opponents in his way. This is more like Part 2 of the NXT TakeOver: The End steel cage match back in 2016. Hopefully he gets his Universal Championship rematch very soon in the future. Maybe beating Roman after he gets the title WM 34.

 

Paige is back, but not alone. It's like we have a female version of The Shield here. Looks like they'll be heels and then Alexa becomes a babyface. The team of Paige, Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose vs Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks and Bailey in a 6-Women match would be simply amazing. We'll see how Paige and her squad continues to brutalize the Women's division on the RAW brand. "Nice to meet you..." ... "Nice to meet you..."  :lol:

Screw you Vince, Kevin Dunn, RAW bookers and The Shield. I can't stand any of them, keep pushing the same 3 undeserving guys and keep burying the entire RAW locker room to make them look strong, your main event card is going to be really diversified for the next 5-10 years.

They should just make Roman vs entire RAW locker room at WM35 that would be a good nice idea, everyone would like to see it :yay: And people thought John Cena was unhealthy for other wrestlers lol.

 

F*cking pissed for The Miz, this guy deserves so much more than the crap WWE are giving to him. And who gets rewarded ? The same sob that always gets everything, right.

 

At least they know how to book Braun since Vince loves big sweaty guy. 

 

Give the main roster awesome talents from all around the world and watch WWE ruining them :

Neville ? Gone.

The Miz ? Best guy on the mic in WWE but rarely wins.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn ? Smackdown clowns.

Finn Balor ? Nothing interesting for him since his return from injury so let's put him on random tag team match with the hardy boyz.

Samoa Joe ? Same, so let's recycle what NXT already did, but let's make it worse with no story to make the feud look interesting.

Shinsuke Nakamura ? Jinder Mahal's food.

Gallows and Anderson ? Comedy tag team.

Rusev ? Jobber.

Tyler Breeze (before Breezango) ? Jobber.

Dudley Boyz ? Jobber.

Sheamus and Cesaro ? Shield pushover.

Nia Jax ? Too powerful, too difficult to book.

Sasha Banks ? 4 title reigns, never been able to defend her title.

Matt Hardy ? Let's not try to recreate the Broken Universe and make him job to Elias.

Bray Wyatt ? Let's turn him into a transexual because no woman can do sister abigail better than bray.

Bobby Roode ? Appears every now and then just to remind us that he has been "push" to the main roster to face the awesome Dolph Ziggler.

 

And people wonder why Kenny Omega doesn't want to go to WWE or why CM Punk will NEVER come back.

 

Your next Revival sorry. And watch them put Aleister Black in 205 live and make him lose to Enzo Amore or do a 3MB reunion when Drew gets punished to the main roster.

Never been the type of guy that always complain about WWE's crap and I've been watching for 10 years or something like that but WWE is just making me mad, especially since they gave the title to Goldberg when should have just kept the title on K.O so we could see the most interesting feud at the time for one of the main championships.

What will happen when they won't be able to bring back part timers to fill Wrestlemania card ? 

 

 

Edit : Just saw that the reason behind the Miz loss could be another Marine movie but the point still stands. If they want to make that title prestigious again they should have given it to someone like Samoa Joe, because as far as I'm concerned, Roman Reigns' reign as US Champion was terrible. And considering the reigning defending Universal Champion is Brock Lesnar, RAW is really in need of a good defending IC champion, not someone who is going to carry the championship with him without trying to elevate the title or defend it.

Overall I really enjoyed this Wrestling weekend with NXT Takeover and Survivor Series. Not much to complain, except that the War Games Cage didn't have a roof and the horrible Men's Survivor Series Elimination Match Booking. Cena didn't belong there, while true Smackdown guys like Shinsuke and Roode were eliminated way too early, and the ending was kinda dumb. I wanna see Braun as the Heavyweight Champion, but he's not gonna get there. Furthermore I don't think that there will be a Triple H vs Strowman Match anytime soon.

 

The Women's Elimination Match would've been more exciting with Asuka vs Becky Lynch in the end. No clue why they went with Nattie and Tamina instead.

 

Regarding NXT: Never was a fan of Patrick Clark, but he put himself over as Velveteen Dream and had such a great chemistry with Aleister Black. You can't teach that, it just happens naturally in the ring. These two plus Adam Cole can be the next big stars in the WWE. Cole's just oozing charisma and has the "It" factor, like Nakamura for example.

 

About Raw: Paige's stable looks promising. The whole division gained a lot more depth with the three. With currently 20 Women on the main roster (including the Champions, as well as Nikki and Maria), there could very well be a Women's Royal Rumble Match next year. They could bring back Beth Phoenix, Lita, Kelly Kelly, Michelle McCool, or even Trish for the first Female Rumble, to fill some of the spots.

 

Don't know what to make of the IC title change. Apparently The Miz is currently shooting another Marine movie, which explains why it happened somehow. Having Roman as Champion though, hmm... . People cheer him one time and Vince suddenly thinks he can shove him down our throats again. Looking back at his US Championship reign, I don't believe it'll be better this time. The IC belt deserves more spotlight though, so we'll see.

Well Roman is now a Grandslam Champion :) Good for him. Hopefully Vince brings back King of the Ring so he can win that as well.

WWE SmackDown LIVE

Nov. 21, 2017

 

Well, SD was better and not full of disastrous disappointments. Someone was right about Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn getting fired. These two should actually stay IMO. They should go up to attempt getting the Tag Team Champions. So it's KO vs Randy next week. That should be interesting.

 

I knew it - AJ Styles vs Jinder Mahal at Clash of Champions. Time for The Phenomenal to drop the title once again then Jinder become 2 time champion to prepare for the Indian tour. I have a feeling that PPV won't be that good, but we'll see.

 

The Bludgeon Brothers have finally arrived at a combined weight of nearly 600 pounds! Finally an awesome re-debut for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. That's what I like about SmackDown. This guys are probably gonna face The Usos at Clash of Champions.

 

SmackDown copied RAW right there. Three women from NXT destroying the division and Becky must've been hit really hard and could be possibly injured. No wonder why I haven't seen Ruby Riot, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan in action on NXT. Those "NXT" chants probably meant that the main roster is getting brutalized by NXT. Can't wait for SD to build them up slowly, but perfectly.

Apparently he's gonna make the IC title more prestigious than Miz would ever do - Open Challenges :facepalm:, but okay we'll see. I just wish Miz never lost it. Screw you, Vince.  

 

EDIT: Wait, another Marine movie? So that's the reason why he lost the title? Oh c'mon. Someone should've taken it away from him instead of Reigns. Now The Bar will lose their Tag Team titles to Seth and Dean. We already know what The Shield is capable of - stop making look like indestructibles!!! 😡

I liked Smackdown way more than RAW even if it felt a little bit disappointing. Why don't they use Bobby Roode, Nakamura or Rusev ? These guys are not going to be top stars without appearing. I'm sure Smackdown could really use a 3 hours show too. 

 

I don't know what to think of what they are doing with K.O and Zayn. One week it looks like they want to make this be the top story into Wrestlemania and the next week it looks like they just want to make them look stupid. Maybe I'm wrong but I think they are also trying to do something with Daniel Bryan. I wasn't a huge fan of him but he was certainly a great wrestler so I wouldn't mind seeing  Team Daniel Bryan vs Team Shane McMahon for the control of smackdown at WM.

 

I also prefered smackdown nxt women invasion because it was way more brutal imo, poor Becky got destroyed :( (And Paige trying to have a cheap pop was awkward)

I was just a bit disappointed to not see Carmella cash-in, I thought it was the perfect time but I guess it wasn't. Smackdown women roster will be much better now I believe because apart from Charlotte and Becky I always thought that SD Women roster was really poor compared to RAW.

 

I love Luke Harper in ring work and when he debuted I thought he was the one that will come out on top of the Wyatt Family because he his so damn good to watch. So I'm really happy to see him again and I hope this run will lead to something for him and rowan.

During an interview, he also said that his goal in WWE was to be the WWE champion so I really wish him good luck with that dream because he his unfortunately very far from reaching it.

I'm so scared of that. I'll be furious if they do that lol. Maybe the big plan for WM34 is Brock vs Reigns for the Universal championship and Jinder vs Cena for the WWE championship, I'm so impatient for these two match I just can't wait 😐

Damn, Ruby started a Riot with her faction. Too bad that it literally was a copy of the Raw invasion, otherwise it would've been even more impactful. But to give Ruby, Liv & Sarah credit, it was more brutal and the interaction was better than it was between Paige, Mandy & Sonya in my opinion.

 

The rest of the show was okay, although it felt like they changed the ending last minute. Maybe it's just me, but I expected something to happen during the Lumberjack Match. Shane wanted to fire Owens & Zayn, but Bryan "saves" them, because he has another idea. Later we saw Shane being cocky and letting everyone know that he's going to the hotel and watch Smackdown there (meaning he can't do anything about what might happen later). Before the main event Daniel was asked about the violent attacks by the former NXT girls and just says "no comment" (he has nothing to say about Heels destroying Faces, very interesting). Then there was the Tag Team Match itself which Kevin & Sami won against all odds, while the Lumberjacks beat the shit out of each other. The perfect time for someone to interfere...but no one (Daniel Bryan) shows up. Sami gets destroyed by three babyfaces like The Miz on Monday and still nothing happens. Instead we see Kevin begging on his knees to not get fired and Daniel only gives him a match with Orton next week, that's it.

 

Why do all that stuff if Daniel isn't interfering in the end to help them and turn against Shane? The huge cliffhanger is just Randy vs Kevin?

I don't think this is the end of what is happening between Bryan / Shane / K.O and Zayn because if it is, it would be really disappointing. The announcement of K.O vs Randy for next week seemed pretty random too, maybe it has something to do with their little twitter war ?

You're right, SmackDown is worthy show for 3 hours, just like RAW. I would like to see Bobby Roode and Baron Corbin feud for the United States Championship and maybe have a match at Clash of Champions. If Triple Threat can be implemented, then Nakamura can as well join the feud. 

 

This K.O and Zayn/Bryan/Shane story is getting super interesting. Everything that @Jesaya815 has said absolutely makes sense. Most of the stuff that happened last night were mini copies of RAW and I didn't notice the rest other than the brutalization of the former NXT girls. The New Day destroyed Sami > The Shield destroyed Miz. I don't think the Randy vs K.O has anything to do with Twitter, but it has to be part of this story. I wonder what Daniel is up to. Oh well, we'll find out. Hope things turn out great and not screwed up by Vince.

 

I think Carmella will only cash in next year at one of the "Big Four" PPVs (okay, let me just say any place) or maybe at the very end of this year or once everything settles down. (Btw, is she a babyface now?) She probably can't penetrate through in a situation like this, because Ruby and her friends will obviously take her out immediately, blocking her way/road to victory and success.

 

I miss those beards too :P. Glad they're back. I hope they will climb up the Tag Team division and face The Usos at Clash of Champions. I strongly trust SD that they can re-build them and not end up like The Wyatt Family. 

 

My gosh. Itachi, if those plans are to be setup at WM34, do you know what that means? One of them (Reigns or Cena) have to win the Royal Rumble next year :o. I might be wrong though, but if Reigns wins, then I'll pack up my bags and fly to the WWE Headquarters and punch Vince right in the face. Just kidding. This guy has been in 3 Royal Rumbles in which he nearly won them all (okay, he won 2015 thanks to his cousin, The Rock). He was the last man standing with Batista in 2014, Rusev in 2015 (which he won) and Randy in 2017. If Cena wins, then he'll tie with Stone Cold's record of winning 3 Royal Rumble matches in history. It will also be a pattern for Cena, because he won in 2008 > (5 years later) < 2013 > (5 years later) < 2018. Maybe one of them will win an Elimination Chamber, but I doubt it because there has to be a championship in that match, otherwise an Elimination Chamber match is not worth a type of match for a No. 1 contender. It will be RAW Exclusive anyway, so yeah.

Yeah, I couldn't resist making that pun  :angel:

 

Hard to tell if Carmella is a babyface or still a heel. It seems like even the writers don't know what to do with her after Elsworth was dropped and released. With him there always was a chance for her to gain some heat or at least have a backstage segment.

Maybe we'll see a cash-in at Clash of Champions if Ruby, Liv and Sarah destroy Charlotte again - potentially after Flair successfully defends her title against Riot for example.

 

Speaking of cash-ins, Dave Meltzer reported that Money in the Bank will feature both brands next year. Nothing has been decided yet if there will be two Raw and two Smackdown MITB matches, or just a men's and women's match with wrestlers from both rosters. There also was a discussion about having a Tag Team MITB match.

 

I think this is a wise decision. They can build Money in the Bank as the fifth big event and reduce the Brand Split PPVs that way.

WWE NXT

Nov. 22, 2017

 

 

It's been a while since I've NXT that short with only 2 matches booked. NXT's storylines are decent and amusing, not rushed like the ones on the main roster, and their TakeOver PPVs are kinda months apart, that's what I truly like about NXT. Following what the shows offer won't disappoint you at all. Posting a review for NXT will only be a rare thing, I guess. Many WWE fans watch the 2 top dog shows, so that's about it. 

 

Johnny Gargano and Pete Dunne's match for UK Championship was awesome. I wish Tyler Bate was included here. One of those guys should go over the top of NXT (speaking about Johnny). He was at the verge of defeating the Bruiserweight himself. Ruby and Sonya's match was great too. I think they settled their businesses one more time before saying goodbye to the NXT Universe.

I heard a lot of good things about this match so I'll definitely watch it when I have the time because Pete Dunn is really an excellent wrestler and probably my biggest surprise of 2017 :D 
I think they are waiting for Ciampa to come back to push either Gargano and/or Ciampa to a better spot in NXT. So I don't think we will see Gargano do meaningful things until then but I'm not worried about him, he his already liked a lot by the NXT universe and he could really well be the next big babyface, whether he is on NXT or on the main roster.

Yeah I know that would suck but that would not surprise me at all tbh. Since 2012 the Royal Rumble have been won by already established guys or part timers and even in 2012, Sheamus was a much bigger deal than he his now so yeah I don't think WWE would let the RR elevate a superstar that needs it because why would WWE try to create more stars ? :P 

 

It would make perfect sense for Braun Strowman to dominate this RR and face Brock at Wrestlemania but we all know how stuborn Vince is with his golden boy getting the main event spot. If I had to choose a RR winner for this year it would be either Braun Strowman or AJ Styles but I really don't see that happening so we can probably bet between Cena, Roman or a returning part timer...

Oh, I see. Gargano was a member of DIY and his teammate betrayed him at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, right? I think his current position is okay, and being the next huge babyface of NXT would be great.

(Sorry for the double post I thought I was in the edit section :P )

 

Honestly, I'm sick of the part-timers now. The Rock was the only best part timer they could bring back in 2011 (maybe others as well, but that's what I can think of for now). He went on to face Cena at WrestleMania 28 under the phrase "Once in a Lifetime", without any championship involved and then the following year, there was title match involved but the good thing is that it didn't ruin any superstar's moment or steal their spotlight. Now, we had to see Mr. Goldberg return and squash Brock in under 2 minutes at Survivor Series 2016, that was okay. Next, he took the Universal Champion off of Kevin Owen's hands at Fastlane, to get victimized and conquered by The Beast incarnate at WrestleMania 33. There was already some fierce tension when K.O betrayed Y2J at the Festival of Friendship, until Goldberg got himself involved. Would've been better if Chris and K.O fought at WM33, but Brock and Goldberg's match was just fine. The following night on RAW after winning the Universal title, the fans wanted Goldberg to get fired.

 

Your point absolutely makes sense about Braun or AJ Styles winning the RR, but that's Vince for ya. The only answer we might get is either Roman, Cena and maybe a part timer, like you said.

Oh, I see. Gargano was a member of DIY and his teammate betrayed him at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, right? I think his current position is okay, and being the next huge babyface of NXT would be great.

 

Don't remember the name of the PPV but yes, Ciampa betrayed Gargano and the crowd was absolutely shocked this was such a big deal :D I think Ciampa should return soon so they may start to really use them once the two are ready to start what might be a memorable feud. (But I'm not worried about that since NXT bookers generally take their time to develop their stories)
