Wrestling & MMA / SummerSlam 2017
« on: August 20, 2017, 05:32:12 PM »
Wow, this show is starting very early, like a WrestleMania.  There are a ton of matches on this card.  Surprising seeing the Hardys and Miz wrestling in front of a half empty arena 90 minutes before the main show starts.

Wrestling & MMA / Smackdown 8/1/17

Big Smackdown tonight with the first time ever John Cena vs. Nakamura.  Also, Kevin Owens, trying to become a 4 time US Champion, taking on AJ Styles.

Last major show before SummerSlam is headlined by a Punjabi Prison match.  Interested to see which direction this brand is going headed into SummerSlam.

Wrestling & MMA / Titus Brand
« on: June 14, 2017, 12:34:04 AM »
Anyone else enjoying the Titus Brand storyline lately? 

This feels like the first time for me that Crews belongs on the main roster since he came up a little over a year ago.  He fits in well being associated with Titus since their strong points compliment each other well.  Titus does a great job playing a Stringer Bell-type character.  Crews is the young guy who wants to move up in the business, but you know he feels a little bit conflicted about Titus' methods. 

Adding Tozawa to the Titus Brand is a great move.  Tozawa and Crews were tag partners in Dragon Gate.  I can totally see these guys getting over similar to Beauty and The ManBeast and potentially comparable to The New Day. 

Calling it right now that by the Royal Rumble Crews and Tozawa will be Tag Champs.

WWE should go all out with this Titus Brand idea.  They need merchandise, a strong social media presence.  Make it like a Chikara storyline where you convince your fanbase that this brand exists (viral marketing, create a Titus Brand website with details on all the services provided when you buyin to the Titus Brand). 

Down the road if WWE will give these guys a push, I think the absolute perfect guy to put this group on an elite level would be the addition of Adam Cole.  Cole is destined to be a star; make him The Ace of the Titus Brand and you've built a long time main event player who will catch fire.

The main event should be outstanding and there is a bunch of different directions they could go for Brock's challenger in July.

Wrestling & MMA / NXT TakeOver Chicago

Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate just had an incredible match that had the crowd going crazy, including a "Fight Forever!" chant.

On the kickoff show in the battle of guys who have teamed with Zach Ryder, Mojo got the big W over Curt Hawkins.

Becky Lynch and Mickie James are currently putting on a clinic.

On right now.

Have not watched much from NXT since Mania weekend (crazy, I know).  Excited to check out Nakamura vs. Roode tonight in front of this crowd.

We got a Triple Main Event.  Will Charlotte and Sasha go on last?

Wrestling & MMA / Raw is Goldberg
« on: October 17, 2016, 11:16:26 PM »
Wow.  That was a fantastic ending to Raw.  Goldberg nailed it.  He has a presence that 99% of the roster cannot match.  The stuff with the kids was awesome too.  Goldberg came across as a badass and a great guy.  When does that ever happen in WWE?

Wrestling & MMA / Kenn Doane returns to WWE
« on: October 05, 2016, 12:50:06 AM »
Finally, The Legend Killer Killer has returned to WWE.  Loved the Spirit Squad reunion with Mike Mondo and Dolph. 

Back in 2005 when Heyman was booking OVW, I thought the 19 year old Doane was the future of WWE.  The guy is only 30 years old.  Does he have a chance for success in WWE again?

By the way, Miz vs. Dolph may be my favorite WWE feud of the entire year.  I cannot believe I am so excited for their match on Sunday.  Great job by both of these guys (and Maryse!).

Looked like Sasha pinned herself and Bayley in that pinning combination.

Replay confirms.  Triple threat at The Clash?

Preshow started at 5.  A 6 hour event just like WrestleMania!

There are actually 4 SummerSlam props on ESPN's Streak For the Cash - http://streak.espn.go.com/en/entry

Catching up on the preshow now as Chikara's free show just ended.

Usos, American Alpha and Hype Bros vs. Ascension, Breezango and the Vaudvillians.

Kickoff show match between the Usos and Breezango was fun.  The DC crowd was very into Breezango.

Wrestling & MMA / RAW is Mr. Bob Backlund
« on: July 11, 2016, 08:18:42 PM »
What a win for Darren Young!

Mr. Bob Backlund, 66 years old, just lifted a guy half his age like he was a child.  Freakish strength from Backlund.

Wrestling & MMA / Cody Rhodes granted release from WWE
« on: May 22, 2016, 07:48:55 PM »
Shame.  Cody may not have been able to be a top guy, but he definitely deserved a lot better over the last year plus. 

Looking forward to his next move.

Wrestling & MMA / 2016 Payback Thread
« on: May 01, 2016, 02:18:53 PM »
Gotta say I am very excited for this event.  The annual spring event in Chicago is a lock to be, at least, good based on the hot crowd.

Throw in the most compelling WWE Title match in awhile with all kinds of possibilities for a finish and Payback could be an event we look back at for years to come. 

Saw an interesting stat today that of the active roster AJ Styles is the second fastest to earn a singles WWE/World Heavyweight title match on PPV when you are counting # of PPV matches it took.  Anyone care to guess who is the fastest? 

Interestingly, out of the 21 competitors on the active roster, Triple H had to wrestle in the most PPV matches before earning that title shot (37).

Got a real good main event lined up tonight:  Triple H vs. Dolph Ziggler

If Dolph wins, he can have any match he wants at WrestleMania except a World title match.

RAW is in Chicago tonight.

Opening segment is supposed to contain a big surprise.

It's going to Titus, so he don't sue, right?

Wrestling & MMA / WWE Fastlane
« on: February 21, 2016, 06:02:24 PM »
Looking forward to this one with a great main event, Jericho vs. Styles 3 and Owens defends the IC Title vs. Ziggler. 

Tune in to the kickoff show at 7 PM as the 2/3 Falls US Title match with Kalisto vs. Del Rio is on the preshow for some reason. 

I have a feeling Ambrose wins the main event in a surprise and New Day sets up a match with Edge and Christian for WrestleMania following The Cutting Edge Peep Show tonight.

The WWE has confirmed today the WWE Network exclusive cruiserweight show that we had been reporting about the past few weeks in the Observer.

The show, entitled the Global Cruiserweight Series, will air on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m., following NXT.

It will be a 32 man tournament of wrestlers who all have to be under 205 pounds, and will be taped at the NXT tapings.

The first episode of the show will be on 7/13, and the championship match will air on 9/14.

The winner of the tournament, which is expected to include a number of wrestlers who are not signed with the promotion, will obviously end up with the promotion and be billed as the best cruiserweight in wrestling.

Triple H is God.

Enjoying the Jericho vs. Styles feud.  Jericho is revitalized playing the subtle, bitter heel.  Feuding with Jericho is a great introduction to WWE for AJ.  Miz's role in this whole deal has been fun, too.  A wrestling feud that is working for all 3 guys.  What a concept.

Wrestling & MMA / Mauro
« on: February 11, 2016, 10:22:12 PM »
How good is this guy?  He is fitting in great in WWE and his play by play on Smackdown has me watching Smackdown far more closely than I did in 2015.  Mauro does an excellent job getting the talent over and appealing to a wrestling fan while not trying to sound too "smart" (a criticism I can understand for Striker, although I am a Striker fan).

Having Mauro call the play by play for Jericho vs. Styles 2 totally added to the match.  His enthusiasm for wrestling is a huge benefit for the TV viewer.  I wish Mauro could someday call a match with Rob Naylor.  I am glad they are trying to make Smackdown a little more important by putting this match on Smackdown instead of Raw and having Brock appear on Smackdown next week for the first time since 2004.  I hope WWE lets Mauro call a match at WrestleMania for doing such a great job since Smackdown has moved to USA.
