I hope everyone is hanging on with everything going on in the wrestling world again this week.

I wanted to discuss some things going on in wrestling. First of all the speaking out movement. I see all you brave women and I stand with you. Last week I shared my story and you can read that if you haven’t in my previous post. Another topic I want to discuss which has really broke my heart is a former interview with Sammy from AEW from 4 years ago surfaced. He jokes about wanting to r*** Sasha Banks due to her good looks. To me this will never be a joke and we have to show our men that these jokes and words are not tolerated in our society. With all that said I want to share how inspired, happy and proud I am of Sasha Banks putting a post out about how none of this is accepted and we need to do better in this world. Truly a strong women, changing the world. As proud as I am of Sasha Banks I am disappointed in the wrestlers and wrestling community. If this was Bliss, Lacey or Charlotte socials would be flooding with support. I want not only women’s wrestlers to have a safe place and the courage to speak out but black women to have support in this industry. For far too long not only in wrestling but in this society of America black women are forgotten and never get the respect, love and support that they deserved. We saw it when Trinity was attacked on social media for her royal rumble comeback. This is just one thing I have to say about Chelsea Green and women that feel the way she did. Yes it’s messed up if fans are flooding your mentions and DM’s with you need to say something but replying with I don’t have to say anything, not everything I feel I post online. Yes I agree to that to a certain extent but if you aren’t using your voice, you are the problem. You don’t only use your voice when it affects you and those closest to you, you use it because it’s your platform and you have a decent following. It’s the only way we will change as a society.

Most of Smackdown was dedicated to the Undertaker because of the Corona outbreak in the WWE. I enjoyed Sasha and Bayley on commentary, but that was about it. In my opinion Smackdown was a weak show, but obviously due to the circumstances cannot blame them.

I’ve been seeing alot of people enjoying Raw the last couple weeks but for me the only star power I have seen is Sasha and Bayley. With Charlotte out for a little bit, I’m sure we will see even more of Sasha and Bayley. For me Asuka’s run so far along with Drews has been stale. I’m waiting for that good story, that huge superstar and I just don’t feel it yet. Charlotte is great, but I do feel her away for a little bit with give us a women a chance to shine and be put in that spot. I enjoyed Edge and Randy Orton’s promo’s a lot, but at the same time where do we go from here with Edge injured. It may seem too soon but I would put the belt on Randy as soon as possible. WWE really just needs something that sets them apart and gives us that big superstar, big show feel again.

I enjoyed parts of AEW this week. First thing is I always enjoy watching the Revival. They are incredible and I can only hope AEW can make their tag team division good. It has been my major disappointment with WWE. The women’s division in AEW isn’t there yet for me, but I’m willing to be patient. I do have to say not much happened in the show but I absolutely loved Sonny Kiss and Joey’s segment together, I want to see more of them. It was done so well!

My favorite wrestling show of the week was NXT. I loved Dakota Kai in action and the women’s tag division is getting good. Would love to see Sasha and Bayley over there more too. They are hyping up Adam Cole and Keith Lee very well. I could see Cole dropping the title for ratings but I could also see Keith Lee on Raw or Smackdown very soon here.

Everyone take care, be safe, wear your masks and try to enjoy the simple things. We will get through this.

When I was 18 I started training in the United States. Being a young woman that already went through abuse, just wanting to be a wrestler. Wrestling was always my escape, no matter how many bruises or scars I kept on the inside I knew I could wake up the next day because I had wrestling.

My first interaction with this wrestling school was with a man that was the lead trainer. He gave me a call, we talked about what I was getting myself into and the amount for the school. I should of seen the signs just from that conversation. He told me as a woman he expects me to be sexy, have a model body, preferable white, might need to get breast enhancements and go on a heavy diet, that those would be potential expectations after my training for me to be on TV at a point. After that conversation I already knew I would never ever get enhancements that I will forever stay true to myself, but at that time it was the divas era and I knew I had to maybe wear more makeup and wear more revealing outfits. The beginning was just the start of the fire.

The one thing that I loved and felt the most safe with is the thing that started destroying me and making me lose myself. I was only trained by lead trainer that would grope me, constantly invite me out for drinks that I always declined, tried kissing me, pinning me down, not letting go of holds and while I thought women power would be something I could at least have with a few girls in the wrestling school that was far from the truth. They watched the abuse, called me a whore and some said they were jealous of me. Jealous that I was getting attention, all that attention was abuse I already faced as a child and the only thing that kept me going was wrestling and now wrestling was abuse. I am very grateful for a certain wrestler who is in ROH right now, that reported it to other trainers multiple times, said he would go to the cops for me. I decided after 2 months to quit wrestling. I quit training, I quit watching the product. The divas reminded me of the women I trained with, Blonde, enhancements, white, tan, caked makeup and were envy of my pain and abuse. Everything made me hate myself, hate the industry. I started drinking, broke up with my boyfriend, would go out to bars 3 times a week just to avoid what I would always come to “wrestling”. I contemplated ending my life, I didn’t wanna date or be touched by anyone for years.

Luckily I escaped the black hole and self destruction that I settled in for a couple years. I started dating, living a normal life, working a warehouse job. These years I still wasn’t watching wrestling and even though I was making good money and had friends something was missing in my heart. It was 2014, I was still drinking, but not as heavy. I turned on Youtube and went to what was live for some reason, at this point I erased all of wrestling from my life. I saw under WWE there was something live that said WWE NXT pre show. I clicked it for some reason I will never know. It was a video package of Sasha and Bayley’s feud and I couldn’t turn it off so I kept watching. Right after that video package I ordered WWE network and watched that entire PPV. I was so intrigued by the entire show, but when I was watching Sasha and Bayley I started crying because what they were doing is what I wanted to do 10 years ago. I knew this was my calling. After that PPV, I looked around my house tossed everything in my house in the garbage. All the meat in my fridge I tossed, all the alcohol I tossed, all the junk food and sodas I tossed. I started training, started going vegan, started doing protein shakes and eating healthy. I started reevaluating my life, and I started being happy.

I went to an amazing wrestling school 3 years ago in Minnesota, I felt safe and learned so much. I was going to start getting booked in the midwest but life happened. My brother overdosed on drugs and my mom got cancer. So I had to take a break from wrestling again, but with this break I have studied so much wrestling and watch wrestling every week. I have stopped drinking all together, spending money on pointless things and have been saving up money during the last year. We are in a pandemic right now but I am determined even at 30 years old to live my dream and make it to WWE. It took me a long time to talk about this and maybe only 2 people will read this, but I am not giving up on women’s wrestling and neither should any of you. We have to fight for equal rights all across pro wrestling not just women’s wrestling. Racism, sexisim and all abuse needs to end.

One last situation I want to address is Twitter. I have faced inappropriate comments and DM on my Twitter for years now from independent wrestlers, popular wrestling podcast hosts, and promoters for smaller promotions. People don’t understand how explicit DM’s can mess with you mentally but it can. I pray everyone can be better and listen to everyone’s pain and emotions. We need to be better.

We’ve had some changes this week with Heyman gone, but I’m not sure the anger what did he exactly do for Raw. I know Vince is the one that decides all, but the women’s division has been the weakest it’s been in a while and the storylines and stars have just been weak. I’m interested to see what Bruce can do as I really enjoy Smackdown every week. This is also a different generation and I am not sure Heyman understands this generation or how to apply organic storylines and not just playing a wrestler storylines.

What did I enjoy on Raw, well I absolutely enjoyed Sasha and Bayley starting off Raw. I like that we are getting IIconics feud with Sasha and Bayley and giving Alexa and Nikki a rematch. I would love to see Alexa turn on Nikki at backflash and turn heel. I would also love for Sasha and Bayley to retain. Asuka and Charlotte tagging wasn’t for me, and I am getting to the point where I’ve seen Charlotte vs. Asuka so many times now it is not special anymore. The match between Asuka and Charlotte was good, but Asuka losing when she is the champion, left a bad taste in my mouth. Yes Charlotte is a star, may be the biggest women’s wrestling star ever may have to do with being pushed may have to do with her being great, but there is other women in this division and if we keep getting the same feuds the same pushes, this is not women’s wrestling.

Raw storylines have been a little all over the place, we have this Rey and Rollins storyline which is so disconnected, we have Apollo as champion but really has no storyline. We have Humberto and Black feuding with Rollins team Buddy and Theory. I love Theory and Buddy but Black doesn’t need a tag partner he needs to be a singles act. You got Zelina’s team that just keeps losing and you got MVP who keeps wrestling like he is the star of the show. The show is a mess in my opinion, but we will see what happens after backflash. What I have loved on Raw has been the Orton and Edge storyline, we will see if this ends Sunday.

This week NXT wasn’t the strongest show for me, there was parts I did like though. Candice Larea getting a little but of intergender wrestling in with Keith Lee, I really liked that. I am not a fan of couples always wrestling and having storylines with each other but if we get an actual detailed storyline that gets us more into intergender wrestling I am all for it. The other thing I liked was the main event with Adam Cole, some shades of babyface in this match and then we get Scarlet sending an exclamation point that Kross is next. Great end to the show and great start to the show but everything in between was just there, not much story just matches.

And now my favorite show of the week Smackdown! We started out with a good promo and segment with Hardy and Sheamous. I actually liked this, it’s been some time since we’ve actually had a heated storyline. I feel this storyline and I am actually interested. New Day had a solid match, but took the L which I found surprising. I liked that they paid respects to black lives matters and I’m glad WWE is letting these men express themselves. We need this.

The match of the year thus far in my opinion was AJ vs. Bryan. Such a great match, great selling, great storytelling, I really love these guys and AJ winning was the right call. I hope to see more storylines for the IC title. The other part of the show which I loved was Bayley and Sasha’s celebration for winning tag titles, it was short simple and great. Bayley has been really growing in her heel role and really just playing it well.

My only complaint about Smackdown was the main event. Other than that I really loved Smackdown. Below I will be getting into Backflash predictions!

Crew vs. Andrade: I am having this be a short simple match with Crews retraining and hoepfully moving onto something new.

Boss n hug connection vs. IIconics vs. Bliss and Cross: Sasha and Bayley just won these I am taking this to be a solid match with Sasha and Bayley winning. I could also see a heel turn by Alexa here.

Hardy vs. Sheamus: I have Hardy winning here, it would be a good end to storyline or a good way to continue it.

Asuka vs. Jax: I personally would prefer Nia winning here and I enjoy her as a monster but with all the rumors that WWE is upset with her for injuring Kairi I see Asuka winning.

Braun vs. Miz and Morrison: This is the worst storyline on Smackdown I see Braun demolishing them both.

Drew vs. Lashley: I have Drew retaining here but maybe Lashley attacking after the match. I also like MVP as Lashley’s manager just not as a wrestler.

Edge vs. Orton is suppose to be the greatest wrestling match ever, this is going to be a lot of pressure for these two and I feel bad for them. We just had what could be one of the greatest matches in a long time on Smackdown with Bryan and AJ. They have a lot of pressure, but I am interested to see what these two can pull off. Orton one of the greatest ever as well as Edge. Both have studied the game, know the game and respect the game. I’m sure they will come up with a lot and not spot wise but phycology and storyline wise.

Hello wrestling family, it’s been some time since I did my last blog post. I been trying to set boundaries with Twitter and the media, wrestling has been really negative especially since the pandemic and I’ve needed some space and time to just watch wrestling with no one’s opinion blocking my true opinions and self. I will get into in your predictions and every show this week. I just want to address that this world is tough and can be so dark sometimes, but wrestling can keep us together, rise us up. Don’t hate wrestling, take a break if you need to but remember wrestling never divorces you, it’s always here when you need it. Last thing I try my best to spread positivity and give everyone a little peice of my blog they can read and enjoy. Please follow my blog, my twitter and support me just by those two things. Thank you my wrestling family. xoxo—Natalie

It wasn’t my favorite Raw, but I did enjoy the bullet points on this show. I know a lot of poeple have hated the vicking raiders and street profits segments, but I have really enjoyed them. Maybe I need comedy in my life or maybe I miss that entertainment in pro wrestling, but it made me smile.

I will admit I prefer babyface Rollins, architect heel Rollins more than Messiah Rollins, but he has done a great job with this character. My favorite part of Raw was Black vs. Rollins and I feel this go can so much further and looking forward to it.

When I saw Owens and Crews having a match I was really excited, when it became a mix tag I could of done without that. I hope we get a true 1 on 1 with these two soon.

Mysterio story is something I’m still not engaged into but willing to give it a shot. I am curious how Mysterio’s son gets involved in another storyline again and how this could go. Willing to give it a chance.

Charlotte gets a lot of shit online for being shoved down our throats or burying talent, but ever since after Royal Rumble she has proved she deserves this all. Her match with Asuka was incredible and I like her doing double duty.

I think the problem is star power on Raw. Sure you have Drew but he main evented with MVP. Some things certaintly need to be shuffled and addressed on Raw in the future.

I liked NXT this week, but it wasn’t my favorite NXT. For me this week Smackdown was the A show, but I will get into the things I enjoyed about NXT. I really enjoyed the cruiserweight tournament and I did like Drake getting a contract from Triple H. It was a story man could relate to. I also have been loving heel Candice Larea, really wanna see more from her on her own.

Really digging Jeff Hardy storyline. I liked his promo about his past and overcoming. This was very solid and yet another storyline someone can relate to. I can relate to it because of being around so much addiction in my life and I always have a soft spot for Jeff Hardy because I been watching him since I was 10. I did like Sheamus attacking him that gives Jeff babyface energy and heel heat to Shamous.

Mis and Morrison doing comedy and parodys and jokes is fine but doing it against a champion, comes across as a joke and not taking title seriously.

I was surprised Sonya took the pin against Lacey and I thought she moved on from Mandy but looks like we are back to that story. I see Sonya the star out of all 3 of them and hope to see Sonya get an opportuntiy and evolve with her character.

Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles are going to run and own Smackdown. Amazing promo by both men and wow what a incredible babyface with emotion Daniel Bryan is. I loved how this was all for Drew Gulak to get another chance. It was a short but solid match, was a good surprise to have Drew vs. Daniel, maybe this is finally Drew Gulak’s moment. I’m all for it. Still excited for Daniel vs. AJ, but also wanna see Drew do something too.

WWE tricked me, I really thought this is how Bayley and Sasha would breakup, but they won the tag team champions. So happy for these ladies, this is what they wanted to do as heel and I prefer this for now. They work so good together and Bliss did amazing in this match to. Happy for them all.

In your house predictions:

Cole vs. Dream: With everyone rumored to being called up and Dream so ready for this moment, I have Dream becoming new NXT champion. I’m sure a lot will make arguement of ratings too, but I just think he is a star and he is ready for this.

Charlotte vs. IO vs. Rhea: This is hard one because I really feel Io would be a great NXT champion, but I am going with Charlotte retaining.

Ciampa vs. Cross: Cross is someone they are high on I don’t see him losing in his first major match.

Johnny vs. Lee: I have Johnny winning, he’s such a good heel he needs some gold and Lee can chase or maybe be called up.

Finn vs. Damian: I have Finn winning, but a really close competitive match with Damian. I could see Damian as one of those call ups also.

We got Riddle and there has been rumors that we will be getting more call ups. I am so excited about this. Dominik to Raw also has been rumored which could be a huge add and really reshape the main roster well. I am hoping for more women’s call ups, but we will have to wait and see. Everyone enjoy in your house this weekend and try to just enjoy wrestling. Don’t think to much just be grateful you have something to look forward to.

I’ve been off social media and haven’t blogged in a while. The negativity towards wrestling really made me put everything on noise cancel. I did wanna talk about how much I loved wrestling this week and how I thought Smackdown had it’s best show in a very long time.

First I wanna start out with Raw. I absolutely loved Orton and Edge’s promo. Edge really explained a simple story in the promo of what grit really is, starting from the bottom, doing anything to get into this business. That grit is motivating him to beat one of the best Orton in a wrestling match. I thought this was put together so well.

Another deep storyline we got and we got this is just one night was Nia and Asuka creating a storyline on Raw and having it build up throughout the show. Both women put on a never forget match in NXT, and I believe they could have an amazing aggressive feud going forward.

Austin Theory got dumped from Zelina but found something way better! He joined the Messiah. I am really excited for this. Theory and Rollins is honestly a match I’ve always wanted to see, so I would love for him to learn from Rollins and them circling back to eachother later.

Drew is doing his best and for me the feuds haven’t exactly been there, but Lashley if they are going there is the perfect feud for him. I almost wonder if it would be better for Drew to lose, so he can win it back when they have fans.

I liked last weeks NXT way better but there was things on the show that added a lot to NXT. First of all Ciampa called out Kross and we are getting that match at takevover. Can we talk about how iconic Scarlet and Kross look from their entrance, to their attire, to their facials, they are gonna be stars.

Another thing I loved on NXT was the cruiserweight tournament, this right here is what has been making me love NXT the most out of all brands. If I could pick a winner, I would love Kushida to win it all.

Another really good match on NXT was Rhea vs. Io. I wish we could of got more!!! But good new is at takeover we get a triple threat with Charlotte. Charlotte has really been making her rounds, this girl bleeds WWE and no one can say otherwise.

I really was delighted by all shows this week, but if I had to pick one that was my favorite it would be Smackdown. No filler, all eyes glued to TV. The show started out with Miz and Morrison and I need this. I need a laugh and these guys did it for me. We got a match with Braun and now at backflash we will get Miz and Morrison vs. Braun for championship. Braun has been dominant but I’m not sure him as or not as champion has shown. I would be very interested in if Morrison and Miz won and how that would be booked.

Talking about 5 star matches all night. First we had Shinsuke vs. AJ which was really the match that I think everything fantasized about during their feud a year or two back. These two have always been good, they just need the time and they can show you it all. Another match I absolutely loved was Charlotte vs. Bayley. THis match was so damn good and Bayley getting the win was huge, she really needed this more than Charlotte. I love how we are still continuing story with Sasha and how Bayley wanted to win on her own. The seeds are planted and I love a slow burn feud.

Sonya got another pin on Mandy. I am so glad they are booking Sonya strong, she could have a Becky moment, you just never know. She has definitaly got it in her and has that bad ass energy.

Main event I loved. Jeff Hardy got the win against Shameus and we are getting Hardy vs Daniel next week. What a dream match and if Jeff can beat him he will face AJ which is what I am hoping for.

I hope everyone enjoyed all shows like I did this week. Sometimes you need to stay offline and find out what really matters to your heart. With that said when I was offline there were a lot of comments against Becky Lynch’s pregnancy. The main comment was from Jim Cornette and I’m glad Rollins shut that down and said he no longer respect him. I also saw many comments from fans today judging her for wanting children and how she will never come back the same and a lot of just sexist hateful comments. First of all she can do it all, second of all a women can change dreams, start new dreams and return to her dream anytime she wants to. Becky is a hero, an inspiration and just because a man can get a woman pregnant and still go back to work like nothing happens gives no one any right to say a woman can’t fight to get back to being even better than before. I will not accept anyone that thinks in such a sick way. I support Becky and respect her privacy during this time. It’s her and Rollins personal life, not ours. Let them be and stop judging not only a woman, but a couple that wants to start a family.

This week was the go home shows for Money In the Bank. I enjoyed all three shows this week and will dive deep into them all and my predictions for Money In The Bank.

I really liked the MVP lounge with Shayna, Nia and Asuka. It was simple, yet to the point and hyped up money in the bank. I like the way Shayna hasn’t been talking as much and all actions, I’ve liked Nia’s dominant return and my pick for MVP of these last 2 months has been Asuka, so much charisma.

So I’m such a sucker for gauntlet matches. I really loved it, I would of preferred Shelton in the place of Humberto but I really loved the match. Obviously my favorite part was AJ returning and winning it all. Great and fun match.

I like what they are doing with Seth and Drew. I actually like Seth by himself more. I liked Seth with authority and babyface 100 million times more, but I also can’t seem to look away with this character Seth has been doing.

I really liked the roll Cedric and Ricochet had been on but I also am a huge fan of Shane Thorn and interested in seeing more of him.

I really liked the match with Liv and Charlotte, Liv has really been showing us new moves every match she has. I really enjoyed this match.

I loved NXT this week more than any show. I am a huge mark for Dijakovik. He had a great match with Johnny. Johnny I never connected to honestly until now, I love his character change with Candice. I really am into it.

Scarlett and Cross debued and it was really awesome. I loved the entrance and I think they will be good on NXT. I don’t know that much about cross besides what he did in Impact but I am really excited to see what Scarlet can do and what kind of character this is.

Charlotte and Io started out really good. The ending made sense, but I would of preferred interference instead, it would of protected Io more. I did move the match and can’t wait for more.

I been love Cruiserweight tournament and can’t wait for more of this. Great in ring action and shows display of the athletes and a story behind them. NXT has some of the best storylines and characters in wrestling right now, for some reason when I watch NXT I forget there isn’t even a crowd, I’m just so mesmerized with the show.

I loved the start to Smackdown. The way it started with a segment hyping up the match and then bam a very intense match. I was really impressed by both Sonya and Mandy. I loved that Sonya got the win, I really loved everything about it and never thought I would be so invested into a storyline with Mandy. Great stuff.

Great tag team action on Smackdown, tag titles will be defended at MITB. I really love Lucha house party and would love them to win titles.

My favorite part of Smackdown was my Jeff Hardy. I loved Jeff Hardy’s promo, Shamous promo, their interaction and the hype. I am really excited for this feud.

Braun and Bray had a promo together and it was more of the same. We will see what happens Sunday.

I enjoyed Boss n hug connection vs. Tamina and Lacey. Bayley has been great with her heel trash talking, I smile every time. It truly is time for people to start talking about bayley in the discussion just like Sasha, Asuka and Charlotte as best in ring wrestler. She has been such a dominant champion and does the little things that make a match great. I do hate Bayley taking these pins in matches before PPV’s though.


Smackdown tag team championship: I am going with Lucha House Party because I want them to win the gold, but I do see them putting them back of Miz and Morrison.

Bayley vs. Tamina: I am going with my WWE match and sense Tamina pinned Bayley on Smackdown Bayley wins at MITB. I do hope they give us more tension with Sasha and Bayley, it seems it has been slowing down a little.

Rollins vs. Drew: I have this match ending in a new contest, a return or Drew pinning Seth. I just think both men should be protected so it’s a hard one, either way I see Drew winning.

Braun vs Bray: Somehow I have Braun winning.

Women’s MITB: Nia. This match need desperatly to give someone to chase Becky. Becky’s feuds just have not been great, she needs some competition.

Men’s MITB: I don’t feel like Braun and Bray is going to end anytime soon. I am taking AJ Styles to win MITB and be the heel that stocks Drew.

There has been so much negativity in the wrestling community lately. When the only thing you love people try to shoot down, it is hard to swallow and endure. The product is doing it’s best and WWE is really doing everything to entertain us and get our mind of things, but fans, social media and even some of the wrestlers are polished with so much negative takes. For me personally it has been so hard to focus on Raw and Smackdown. This week I saw some people put up videos of the live sex celebration with Lita and Edge. I just tweeted that Lita deserved more respect than people posting that video and calling her names. I had 100’s of likes and retweets and many replies that were very horrible words addressed towards me. I was called a whore for supporting Lita and that no one should ever be forgiven for cheating and that I will go to hell for supporting her. It really got to me and I just was questioning why I even have social media, a phone, the internet if it is destroying my only love, my only happiness, wrestling. My heart wants to support all wrestling so bad, but when AEW takes shot at WWE and tragic things they are going through, that wrestlers are going through it makes me bitter, angry, not want to support them. We are in a tough time that regardless of how big of a company you are, you are losing money, losing employees, it so depressing and rough. Wrestling needs to be there to lift us up, not bring us down. I really want all these companies to succeed and make wrestling stronger. Impact is doing such a great job with Tessa, Eddie Edwards, Taya and so many more. AEW is building there women’s division and doing their best work with the women’s division, the independents and trying their best to promote streaming services and pro wrestling tees to help out the wrestlers and WWE is giving us these shows with continued storylines to get our minds off this world. WWE will always be my first love, but I truly want all wrestling to make it, to be stronger than before.

My favorite part of wrestling has been the Candice’s new character in NXT, Jinder returning, Rollins and Drew starting a feud and also the feud with Sasha and Bayley starting up. There may not be much happening as of right now, but these small characters changes and storylines even if it’s just 30 seconds fill my heart with hope and happiness.

Everyone please take care, have faith and hold onto the good. Hold onto wrestling, remember wrestling never divorces you, it will always be there for you.

Wrestlemania was truly a therapeutic weekend for me. We had storylines ending and some beginning. I will dive into all of the matches that happened on the shows this week and talk about my highspots and botches.

I enjoyed Smackdown the most out of all the shows this week. I thought Braun and Shinsuke started out the night good and I thought Braun looked very strong on this episode as he should, he’s our new champion. It was a good segment to create our main event.

We had a shorter, but still solid match between Kari, Asuka against Bliss and Cross. Alexa Bliss always got a lot of shit with her feuds with Sasha, Bayley and Nia in the past, but she has always been a good believable character. I’m not sure how I feel about Cross yet, I feel like she hasn’t met her character yet. I would love Asuka and Kari back into singles action and I would love them both on Smackdown. Solid match, correct team won but not interested in Mella and Dana as a team and even if so they need to prove why they deserve a shot.

I liked the storyline with Ziggler and Otis, but I felt after Wrestlemania it should of ended. No longer interested in this story and Mandy would be a great manager for heavy machinery.

The dirt sheets segment was funny to me. To me Morrison is one of the most creative minds. It got us to a match that will happen next week, so I’m all for it. I love all three of these tag teams.

We will see what the Forgotten Sons do on Smackdown, not sure how I feel about them yet.

Solid match with Bray and Shinsuke and interesting appearance by Bray. Bray and Braun could be a good story, but not sure how I feel about putting title back on Bray and Braun losing right away and if a story can be executed well. What I honestly want to see the most in the future is a Bray and Jeff Hardy storyline. Jeff has such an amazing creative mind as well as Bray, I really would trust them to make magic

The segment with Sasha and Bayley was very well done. When they started talking and cutting a promo I was like oh wow maybe they aren’t gonna pull the trigger on these two they are back to owning Smackdown and being best friends. Then Sasha’s facials and Bayley putting Sasha in a match against Tamina said it all. This may be a tease and slow turn but this is already way better when they tried to do it on Raw. I am so excited for this and I will wait forever for these two to get the perfect story that they deserve.

Raw was not my favorite show and it did seem like it was a lot of recap and not much story, but I am fine with that. I am so blessed and happy I am getting any wrestling at all. My favorite match was the first one, Liv and Asuka hitting it off in the ring. I would love a detailed storyline with these two, and this is the perfect opponent for Liv. Liv has always been good in ring to me and she is still improving every match I watch her in. Really hoping to see more of Liv in the future.

I loved that we officially have Bianca on Raw. She is a mega superstar and I am totally cool with her being stuck with Street Profits until they are ready to build her up on Raw. This was a descent match and it got over the right wrestlers.

A match that I really thought was good was Apollo and Black. These two had an amazing match and it showed how good Apollo still is and always has been. One reason I did like parts of Raw is we got to see wrestlers we don’t usually see.

Ever since they faced each other on main event I said I wanted these two as a tag team and now it is happening. Street Profits vs. Ricochet and Cedric screams tag team wrestling main eventing a PPV. I am really excited to see what they can do. I would have Street Profits with Bianca had a good storyline with Cedric, Ricochet and Ember Moon. It can be two babyfaces or one of the teams can turn heel. I do think Street Profits as heels would be interesting.

We had a couple squash matches and Drew facing Big Show which was a better match then the one against Brock. Good close to the show and hopefully we get some storylines developing in the next couple weeks.

NXT was a very solid show, I can understand how they won the ratings over AEW. I still have to catch up on the beginning of the show, I missed the first hour but oh boy Io vs. Charlotte sounds like a show stealer.

I watched the main event and really liked it. I saw the same negative feedback that Edge and Orton got for their match and I didn’t really understand it. I was entertained by the spots and thought the ending was epic. I don’t think Candice should be a heel but at the same time it may add another layer to her character.

Wrestlemania Night 2

WWE truly gave us something to get our minds of what’s going on in this crazy world. I enjoyed both nights and thought WWE really was creative and unique with their shows this weekend. I went into night 1 on Sunday so would like to dive into night 2 today.

One of the better pre show matches we have got in recent memory was Liv defeating Natalya. I would like to see Natalya turn heel and for Liv to really get someone to work with. This girl has so much passion for the wrestling business and works so hard, I can see her being a huge star. When they reboot her being blonde I really didn’t get that because to me her personality matches the girl with pink hair, the edgy girl now the girl next door.

For me personally opening matches that are long and a story I am not invested into is hard for me. I think Charlotte is one of the most natural gifted athletes, her and Bianca are the next Kurt and Brock. They are so gifted, but with that said I was not invested into the storyline of Rhea and Charlotte. I never saw Rhea on Charlotte’s level. Charlotte may be the greatest of all time and she should be treated as such. Sure this may up NXT’s ratings or give us some dream matches, but Charlotte belongs on Raw or Smackdown and belongs at the top. She is above most and I honestly didn’t see a problem with her handling Rhea.

There was two matches personally for me that I didn’t see in night 1. Night 1 for me didn’t have any filler but Otis and Ziggler I expected more out of and Lashley vs. Black had no story and no reasoning for me to care. The Otis story was good, but I felt Mandy went to rescue Otis too soon and this didn’t need to be on Wrestlemania. Also raw tag team championships was kinda a short match with no story, but we did get Bianca debuting. I am so hyped for this. I am a huge Bianca fan and really feel this can be the 2.0 team extreme.

Twitter gave Edge and Orton so much heat for their match at Wrestlemania. People said it was too long and the most boring match in history, I disagree. They were trying to be creative, sure they could of made it shorter, but this was their creative idea, their decision and I appreciated it. I liked how they traveled to different rooms and how much they expressed the beating. At times I seriously thought one of them died. I hope this story continues.

The Smackdown women’s championship was my favorite in ring wrestling match of night 2. I was invested into this story, I thought they told the story perfectly with Sasha/Bayley. Just little touches here and there but no full turn at all. I really do like it and I would love it if it was Bayley turning on Sasha instead, it would be such a swerve and they could really show some of that footage when Sasha was gone, how she fell out of love of wrestling. They could make it personal and real, it could be really good.

The best comedy angle in forevers was the firefly funhouse match, I laughed so damn hard. Cena and Bray put all the creative juices into this along with creative I am sure, it was what everyone needed at a time like this. Probably my favorite part of night 2.

I’m sure everyone has their opinions, but I actually didn’t want Drew to win. I wanted Brock to beat Drew and for the story to continue. We have seen the same story so many times now, someone defeats Brock at Wrestlemania and uses all their finishing moves over and over again until they pin Brock. I felt this story could of continued and that Drew winning it in front of the crowd would of meant way more.

Wrestlemania Night 1

So many people criticized, complained, doubted but WWE pulled of a beautiful historical night. We had Wrestlemania moments and jaw dropping performances. I will match by match for night 1.

Cesaro and Gulak had a shot match, but I was happy to see Cesaro get the win. I would love for Cesaro to turn babyface and have a feud with Sami.

I thought the women absolutely killed it tonight. I really sensed some energy of Kabuki Warriors that they were gonna lose. I’m not sure what it was, but I really felt it for some reason. It also felt like Bliss and Nikki really badly wanted it more. This was a fantastic match, one of the best women’s tag matches since Sasha and Bayley were holding them. Really happy for these ladies.

Elias and Corbin just wasn’t a match for me. It’s too bad that Elias cannot get oer as a babyface, I always thought his gimmick matched a heel perfectly. Corbin needs a good babyface to work with like a Daniel Bryan. This match did feel like the bathroom break match unfortunately.

My favorite in ring match of the night was Shanya and Becky. I wanted Becky to win, to show that just because you are trained in MMA doesn’t mean you are ready or better than a pro wrestling. Shayna really showed that she can go and hang with Becky and out of know where these two had amazing chemistry. I know there was a lot of backflash, but I’m willing to wait for the story they will give this. I think it would be cool for Becky to take out all 4 horsewomen and maybe rewind back into Ronda again. I also would love some NXT call ups. People can hate Becky all they want but she is not forced or over pushed she has been carrying Monday Night Raw. I see the story continuing and I’m looking forward to it.

Sami and Daniel was an alright match, I do see why they wanna keep title on Sami but I also thought it would of been a good moment for Daniel. Ending wasn’t for me.

Owens and Rollins was my second favorite in ring match of the night, Rollins and Owens really worked their asses off. If there was a crowd for this one, it would of been most over in ring match. Really really enjoyed this one.

Braun beating Goldberg was what it needed to be. It’s too bad the guy that didn’t take the fiend down was Braun, it would of been incredible story but it doesn’t matter how we got there Braun is finally the champion. So happy for Braun.

WOWOWOWOWOWOWO that bonecard match is my favorite match in general in a very very long time. AJ and Undertaker deserve all the praise in the world for this match. It felt like a movie, but also felt so real. The chemistry and story these two had in this match seriously amazed me. I loved it.
