We are going to be having an amazing weekend of wrestling. We have world collide which is gonna give us amazing in ring matches and we have my favorite PPV of the year, the Royal Rumble. I will go over my predictions and go over what I thought of Raw and Smackdown.

My favorite match of this week was Mysterio vs. Andrade, I will never get sick of seeing these two wrestle each other. This was one of my favorite ladder matches I have seen in a long time.

I would of liked this segment with Ricochet and Brock better if Ricochet said he would enter at 2 and see a good competition between them at the beginning. Ricochet is so good and he needs something to give him a spark.

Even though the match ended in no contest Drew vs. Orton I enjoyed and would like to see a detailed feud in the future. I really liked Drew’s promo at the end and like I said last week I’ve really liked Drews babyface turn. I would be all for Drew winning the royal rumble.

I was so happy when Buddy and Rollins won tag titles. Rollins is the man on Raw and he should have some kind of gold and as for Buddy Murphy this is huge for him. I am really happy for Buddy.

This Lashley/Lana/Rusev/Liv storyline has kind of gone out of control. I was never against this story but having Liv and Rusev lose really isn’t doing anything for the story. I am hoping Liv and Rusev can go their seperate ways and be stars outside of this story.

I don’t know if I am just not engaged to what is happening on Smackdown or if the stories are just not strong but Usos and Roman vs. Ziggler, Roode and Corbine I didn’t feel at all.

I liked the promo was Lacey Evans but the crowd kinda took me out of it because I thought I heard boos while she was talking about her father’s passing and being inspirational to other. I really thought she knocked that promo out of the park. I loved the Bayley heel beat down, but I do not want Bayley to drop this. I feel babyface Sasha vs. heel Bayley is money and needs to be booked for this Bayley run to end and mean something. We had another match I wasn’t invested into Braun and Elias against Cesaro and Shinsuke. I really feel Smackdown needs a purpose. Either they are a wrestling show, a storytelling show, they need an identity.

Andrade vs. Humberto: I am taking Andrade for this match and for the feud that ended, continued, will end again at Royal Rumble.

Shorty G vs. Shaemous: I am taking Sheamy, it’s his return should be a dominant win.

Bayley vs. Lacey Evans: I am thinking they take the title of Bayley and put it on Lacey. They seem really high on her and the crowd seems behind her as well.

Mens Rumble: I am taking Drew, I feel it is his time.

Roman vs. Corbin: I am predicting Corbin wins and Roman goes far in the rumble.

Becky vs. Asuka: I am taking Bex, this will be her match to prove she is the best.

Women’s rumble: Taking Ronda or Shayna, they need something big for Becky.

Fiend vs. DB: I want it to be DB but I see Fiend winning again.

Drew has turned baby face and it couldn’t of happened at any better time. Regardless if he wins the Rumble or puts on a good show in the Rumble, we could be getting closer to Drew as WWE Champion. This week I really feel we got to see the real Drew. I am hyped to see more of this and so interested in his baby face run.

I liked seeing Ricochet in action, I really wish they would repackage him or give him a manager.

The Becky and Asuka contract signing was really good. It was simple they signed the contract then we got Asuka using the mist on Becky. Becky really sold that mist and cut an amazing promo. Really looking forward to this match.

Black vs. Murphy was another classic and the ending of Raw was even better. We got Buddy joining Seth Rollins and AOP. So hyped for next week.

I liked the start of Smackdown team hell no reuniting. I really love anything Daniel Bryan does and Kane is one of my favorite older wrestlers.

I liked the segments and match for Bayley vs. Lacey but not all for them pushing Lacey so much and having Bayley lose. Bayley doesn’t get enough credit for how good she is in the ring and how over she gets females that are green and not experienced.

I thought this was one of NXT’s better episodes in the last couple weeks. I really loved the main event women’s battle royal. I really feel all along Bianca should of been the one to beat Shayna but she won the battle royal so hopefully her and Rhea put on a good match. We haven’t had many wrestlers that have been so gifted coming into this sport and learn so fast. I compare Bianca to a Kurt Angle, she just caught on right away, like it was all meant to happen. She is unique, strong, a mega star and could really bring this women’s division to the next level and also show that not only white girls can be champions. She has it all and could help and be a role model for so many girls. The other match on NXT I super loved with Swerve vs. Lio vs. Tyler Breeze. This was an insane match, all men had chemistry and I loved Swerve taking the win. I was so hyped for Kushida and and Shelley teaming, thought they could really go all the way but they had them lose, wasn’t a fan of it.

The kickoff to the Royal Rumble has started and I got to say I really enjoyed all shows this week on WWE television.

On Raw we got Brock and anyone Brock is on a WWE TV you can expect star power. I am very interested in Brock being in the royal rumble match even as being champion. I hope they put his title on the line and whoever wins the royal rumble in the new WWE champion.

My favorite match on Raw was Andrade vs. Mysterio. These two are so damn good in ring and I would like to see more from these two. They have done a really good job getting fans to boo Andrade.

I really loved the tag team action on Raw, but I really thought they missed an opportunity with the new year. Putting it on Street profits would of made the crowd erupt and putting it on the OC would be a good way to show dominance of the OC.

We have been getting small promos and segments to build up Asuka and Becky. I think it could be built better and I was kind of confused with Becky thinking she can’t beat Asuka but cheap shots her. I would like them to bring up her tapping to Asuka more, but match should be good. I just wanted more of a build.

Absolutely love what they are doing with Rowan. We keep getting a little more and more to what is in his cage every week. I’m all for them making him a dominant star right now.

It was good to see Rollins back in action, but the whole Big Show is the surprise did nothing for me.

I thought the opening segment to Smackdown has been there best segment since going to fox. I loved the swerve of Morrison and Miz as baby faces and Morrison just chew up and throw it up at the crowd. Morrison is fire on the mic, I really loved this opening.

Kofi and Miz was an ok match, honestly wasn’t invested and would of loved Kofi vs. Morrison instead but it’s all about the build up. I really enjoyed it.

I do not hate every blonde that has ever wrestled but I do know there is this stereotype and expectation for women to be blonde, tan, tall, white with enhancements so when I see Bliss vs. Mandy It just gives me the divas era feeling and it doesn’t feel good. I do have to say I do like the storyline with Mandy and Otis. I think it’s cute.

Lacey is doing the babyface role very well and Bayley is doing the heel role very well. I’m down to see these two in a title match but I want Bayley to retain. I also liked Bayley’s promo with calling Lacey’s kid as a snot. I know Bayley has been given a lot of criticism but I have enjoyed her character as a heel. I like how she is emo, how she doesn’t care, how she is still doing her same amazing in ring wrestling. Bayley has always been very stiff and rough in the ring and it matches her heel character. Sasha will always have that swagger but I think Sasha losing last week helped Bayley. Bayley didn’t take the pin, Bayley is the champ and Bayley is letting Sasha take the hits for her. Just saying baby face Sasha vs. heel Bayley would be money.

I am not a fan of the Fiend but have to admit I love Daniel Bryan not being afraid and everything he is doing. I really want him to win at Royal Rumble but I know they wanna stick with the Fiend.

Braun defeating the IC champion Shinsuke is a good move. They haven’t been using Shinsuke right and it’s something for Braun to have and defend.

Loved Sheamus backstage promo, cannot wait to see more of him. This is how you elevate someone that was down to the next level. Get some wins, cut some good promos and embrace chaos.

Really loved the promo with Roman and the Usos. I am all for Roman winning the royal rumble, I think it would make a great story and an amazing moment for Roman. I would enjoy 2020 being Roman’s year and by the end of 2020 or 2021 you can go back to a Roman vs. Rollins main eventing mania or a big PPV.

I really enjoyed Raw and Smackdown a lot this week, but Wrestle Kingdom was really just that wrestling that had the psychology and emotion in their wrestling. Just got done with night one and my favorite matches were Will Ospreay vs. Takahashi and Okada vs. Kota. To be honest I haven’t watched NJPW in a year but watching wrestle kingdom that didn’t matter. Sure I missed some things but what NJPW did that AWE didn’t was introduce me to the characters and the changes. It was the most easy wrestling, well booked, amazing wrestling I have seen in a long time. It has that real fight feel along with the feeling that it is okay to have emotion and cry during a emotional moment or match.

I loved both Raw and Smackdown but Smackdown was the show for me this week. I loved the surprises we got, to end the show we got the Usos returning to help Roman and it looks like we are getting a tag team called the bloodline with Tamina who I would love to see more of. A Stable that has a female, now that is something I can get behind. We also had Sheamus returning to attack Shorty G. As much as I liked this return I did feel there was a better way to have him return. A surprise that I really liked though was John Morrison returning to Smackdown. I am so glad he is not going through NXT and this is great because he is with the Miz and Miz seems to be turning heel. So excited for this new story. The women opening the show I enjoyed and as much as Dana and Lacey have improved I didn’t like Sasha taking the pin and I am not excited for her losing to Lacey. I have liked the way Bayley has been booked and I really enjoyed her promo. I like Bayley and Sasha together as heels but I would like Bayley to be treated more like a store booking wise. I have liked the booking and I know it will never be perfect but just let Bayley be herself and use her ideas.

I also enjoyed Raw so let’s dig into what everyone has been complaining about but for some reason is getting great hits in the ratings. The wedding happened and this story may have it’s oh wow that happened or embarrassing moments for some but it’s been a consistent storyline, they haven’t give up on it. They keep adding to it and regardless if this was the plan or not, it’s working. I am a huge Liv Morgan fan and I did like her better with her pink hair and edgy character but I want Liv to have air time and to get a strong storyline so this personally works for me. Another thing on Raw I enjoyed was Randy Orton faking an injury and getting redemption on AJ. I like a baby face kinda doing a heel move, it was really well done and I am all for AJ vs. Randy Orton going into Mania. Street Profits defeating OC to be added into the match I am all for, but I would like OC to become new tag team champions next week, I would love OC to dominate like Undisputed Era does on NXT. As much as people love to hate on Charlotte, her and Natalya had an amazing match on Raw, it was my favorite match on the show. Would love to see Natalya turn heel or even Natalya and Charlotte as a tag team. Descent promo by Becky Lynch, I’m interested in seeing her vs. Asuka. I Just personally need more from Asuka lets bring more up, bring up that Becky tapped to her. I’m not sure how I exactly feel about Becky acting like she cannot beat Asuka but I am willing to roll with it. Last thing that I have been really loving is Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins and AOP have been dominating who they want and now we get Joe and Owens as a team which is also really intriguing, but the thing is I don’t want AOP and Rollins to lose, they need to remain strong with Rollins being the mouthpiece.

With AEW I have enjoyed what they have been doing with Jericho and Sammy, but it does really make me think if Revial doesn’t renew contract them and Jericho together would be legendary. I also think Darby is a star and shouldn’t be losing. I do like him in a Jeff Hardy underdog underground role, but in this generation fans aren’t patient enough for him to keep losing and remain that underdog. The women’s action is still disappointing to me and Britt continuing to lose is not something I understand at all. With that said I will give it a chance and keep watching because I enjoy watching all different kinds of wrestling.

I hope everyone had a great holiday week. Honestly the Holidays for me are always tough, but wrestling really cheered me up and kept me strong this week.

On Smackdown I really loved seeing the New Day tag with Braun against Cesaro, Shinsuke and Sami. I thought this was a really solid match and I really loved seeing Cesaro and New Day, they really are my favorites to watch on Smackdown. A good win for New Day but a little worried about Shinsuke losing recently. I would love to see Ali in the title picture if they aren’t taking Shinsuke seriously or even Cesaro.

I am enjoying the cute storyline with Mandy and Otis. Mandy doesn’t need to win matches to make this storyline work.

I really loved the main event. One of the more solid matches I have seen by the Miz in a long time. Really really enjoyed this match and the undeniable chemistry Daniel and the Miz have.

My favorite part of Smackdown was Bayley and Sasha owning it. I usually don’t like tag team rematches but this was perfect way to put Sasha and Bayley back in the dominant spotlight on Smackdown.

Lastly on Smackdown I loved seeing Roman just make spots and interferences with Corbin. I would really like Roman to win the Rumble but until then I am perfect fine with him making Corbin’s life a living hell.

Raw was pre taped and a lot of people looked and the spoilers and didn’t like the show. I never look at spoilers because I like the surprise and to watch the show without interruptions. Holiday shows are never amazing shows but I liked Raw for certain parts and developing stories for the Royal Rumble.

First of all I absolutely love love love love Rollins heel turn and everything he has been doing lately. I liked his match with Mysterio and I like his promos and him dominating with the AOP. For me Rollins has saved Raw, he has added that star feel as a heel.

I love Cedric so much and he put on a great wrestling match, but I really win they would give him some wins and buid him up.

Another thing I really loved on Raw was Becky Lynch cutting a really good promo on Asuka and not only cutting a great promo but speaking in Japanese to Asuka. This is already fired up, I cannot wait for this match at royal rumble. Becky has been fire this year regardless of her booking and this will elevate her even more. Really excited.

The OC got a much needed win with defeating Orton and the viking raiders. I would like to see the OC to keep getting more wins. AJ is a good heel to become champion along with Rollins later also.

I thought both shows were entertaining this week and added a lot to look forward coming this week.

A lot of people were very critical of wrestling this week and over the weekend, but I really enjoyed it. My favorite match at TLC was the main event. I really thought the women brought it all. I know a lot of people said it was sloppy but it was my favorite match on the card.

On Raw my favorite part was Rollins promo and him attacking Mysterio. I would all be for Rollins winning that United States championship. To me Rollins has been saving wrestling for me.

I really liked the OC defeating the Viking Raiders, no one has defeated them yet and I really liked the star to this story.

I’ve been really enjoying Rowan’s squash matches. I am very interested what is in the cage but I am more interested on him becoming a monster.

Great main event with Orton and AJ. I really feel AJ does need some wins here soon though, it is hurting him to lose. On NXT we have Undisputed era with all the gold on RAW I feel we should have AJ as universal champion and OC as tag champions. You could really build that dominant force with all of them winning with the gold.

Asuka having a dominant win was good and Becky Lynch cut an interesting promo. I am very excited to see where these two go from here. It could be a great story.

NXT was certainly my wrestling show of the week. Adam Cole and Finn delivered, but for some reason didn’t feel as special as I thought it should. I did still enjoy it and am excited for who Cole will feud with next.

Preist is so good in ring and such a good character, cannot wait to see more from him.

Kushida one of my favorite wrestlers period lost to Grimes. I am not sure the whole excitment on Grimes but we will see where this goes.

Io and Santana had a great match. Santana is someone I have been having my eye on for years, I am glad she finally made it to WWE. Io on the other hand has the best moonsault in the business and I love seeing it.

Travis Banks is a wrestler in the UK I have been really enjoying on NXT UK. I really hope to see more of him on NXT.

The main event was the most solid women’s match I have seen all year up there with Bex vs. Sasha. Amazing match, amazing story and amazing finish. So happy for Rhea.

Smackdown started out with a good promo from Daniel Bryan. I didn’t so much enjoy the Miz coming out but am intrigued to see where this goes.

Apparently Lana and Dana Brooke aren’t enough, they now need another blonde Mandy trying to get with Otis. I liked Otis and Tucker and thought the match was good for what it is. If Mandy involved with Otis is all for him to get used it may get him over but I am just over cheesy storylines. The best part was after the match Revival cut an amazing promo.

New Day had a great tag team match against Shinsuke and Cesaro. I am really glad Kofi got the win in this one. If I had to pick a wrestler of the year in the mens it would be Kofi.

I loved Bayley getting a solid win over Dana and of course loved my Sasha and Bayley together. I am kinda digging Lacey as a babyface and her working with Dana. Lacey bringing her daughter into this is interesting and I’m glad Sasha didn’t lose her match with Lacey. I am willing to wait to see where this goes. I would really like Revival and Sasha/Bayley to make a stable together, they both don’t get respect for how good they are and they are all really good heels, would love to see it. Both as tag champions again too would be real dope.

I really enjoyed all three shows this week. I just got done watching Smackdown with my Brother and Mom and I will go over that show first as it’s my favorite of the week.

Smackdown was just an easy watching enjoyable show for me. I was absolutely marking out for Kofi’s promo to open Smackdown. This is the way you open up Smackdown. Kofi is such an organic babyface and I really loved everything he said. It really gave me hope that Kofi can be that baby to lift up Smackdown if needed. Speaking of even more amazing, the main event was very strong. I really liked Kofi in the main event, putting on a 5 star match and Roman coming to help out Kofi. I usually don’t like DQ’s but I didn’t want Kofi to lose so I enjoyed this very much.

I enjoy watching Bliss back and I am really into her as a babyface. I am not high on Sonya or Mandy especially as a team so I did like Bliss and Cross getting the win against these two. With that said I liked women having time on TV but they need to be put in stories.

Revival and Ali/Gable didn’t have the longest match of the night but all really displayed why they are so good. I don’t like Ali taking the pin but I do like Revival standing strong. Them vs. New Day at TLC is gonna be fire.

The segment with Bayley, Elias and Dana was really good. This whole promo and segment showed why Bayley is just fine on her own. I still really badly want Bayley vs. Sasha at Wrestlemania but we will see how it goes. Lots of good stuff by Bayley tonight and she didn’t squash Dana but really dominated it and I loved it.

The Bray Wyatt and Miz stuff was top notch amazing. This story came out of nowhere and it is already my favorite storyline of the year. I am really excited for the build up and story more than the match. Really intrigued for TLC.

Heavy Machinery had a good showing but lost to Shinsuke and Cesaro. They have pinned Cesaro so much I would of been fine with it again.

Even though I enjoyed Smackdown the most, I did also enjoy Raw. Raw started out with a storyline that has had mixed reviews. Lana annoys me in the way of go away heat but I thought they nailed the segment really well, but that doesn’t mean I want this story to continue. Hahha.

I really enjoyed everything by the street profits this week. There weekend updated made me laugh so hard watching Raw in bed, I wanna see more of that. I also enjoyed their match with viking raiders. I was fine with them losing and would like to see AOP defeat Raiders soon here.

Humberto and Andrade was my favorite match of the week, I really enjoyed that match. We also get a little story with Andrade angry with Zelina and teasing the break up. I’m intrigued.

We had a couple more matches that built up the talent. You can call it quick matches or squash matches but certain wrestlers cannot lose and this is a good way of displaying it.

The Becky and Kabuki Warriors match was solid and Kari doing a diving elbow to Becky was really cool to see. I also really liked the backstage segments that lead up to Charlotte and Becky agreeing to tagging. This match in my opinion could steal the show. I would love to see Asuka and Kari retain by Charlotte turning on Becky. Becky is finally starting to kind of trusting Charlotte and this would be the perfect opportunity. Besides Asuka, Becky really doesn’t have much competition. I would like to see Charlotte vs. Becky one last time at the royal rumble to truly end this feud.

My favorite part of the week was Rollins officialing turning heel and joining AOP. I am so damn excited for next Monday.

TLC Predictions:

Black vs. Murphy: I am taking Black for this one but Murphy putting on a really good fight.

Women’s tag team championships: This is going to be an amazing match and I am going to go with Charlotte turning on Becky and Asuka/Kari retaining. I really hope so because Becky 2 belts may be too much on Raw with her having not much competition. Heel queen Charlotte would be that spark.

Rusev vs. Lashley: I am taking Lashley to win this one and for this feud to continue.

New Day vs. Revival: This is the match I am looking forward to most. I love both these tag team and my favorite type of a match, ladder. This is going to be so amazing. I am taking New Day retaining.

Bray vs. Miz: I am taking Bray winning this match, but I feel something new may happen with this match. Not sure if it’s Liv Morgan returning, Daniel Bryan returning or Bray doing something different.

Roman vs. Corbin: I am taking Roman winning this match. Let’s end this feud and put Roman next in line to face Bray.
