Hey Everyone, I hope you have been enjoying your week. It has been three nights in a row of wrestling and we had some positives and some negatives. As far as Raw and Smackdown goes I thought both shows were descent. Extreme Rules wasn’t my favorite PPV this year but at least we get a more aggressive Ricochet and Seth Rollins.
Paul creatively is amazing but his promos for Brock have been repetitive for a while. It really did nothing for me, I see the hate on social media for Seth Rollins winning to get that rematch with Brock, honestly Rollins is has been the man the wrestler carrying this industry for the last two years, he deserves at least a rematch. I don’t care how long it takes but I want Rollins to retrain and face Roman at Mania.
Good tag team match with Ricochet and Usos. I just wish Usos had a story with Revival, instead of one off matches. Tag team division needs a spark.
My favorite part of Raw was Cedric getting the win over Drew. Drew by looks is what a white man would think a star looks like, but for me Cedric is the star and I hope Cedric gets a push.
One thing that everyone seems to be a fan of that I am not is Bray. I think Bray has a very talented mind but this character I am not feeling and him feuding with Finn again is nothing intruiging.
Natalya advances to face Becky at Summerslam. Becky is a great character and she really know how to make the fans love her but athletic and in ring wise Natalya, Sasha, Bayley are way ahead of her. I think this the man stuff did take Becky down a little, you don’t need to be super feminine but copying stone colds character is fizzling out for me. I like characters that are unique and organic and at a point she was, I preferred straight fire Becky and BEcky is one of my favorites I have just not been happy with her booking and matches lately. Natalya is a character I have always been invested in and I would be all for her winning in her hometown at Summerslam.
Miz and Ziggler as a tag team or a feud I would be interested in. Looking for another feud from these two.
I’m so happy to see Liv back on TV. A lot of people say Mandy, Mella, Bliss looks like the stars but to me Liv has everything and more. The offense she got was really good against Charlotte and with a teased character change I am really interested.
Cesaro and Black have a really good match but storytelling wise I am not sure where they go from here.
Bayley and Ember defeat Mandy and Sonya quickly. Match itself was whatever but after the match Bayley challenging Ember was really good. These two will have a great match together but am Ember heel turn would be unexpected and interesting.
Kevin Owens has been great as a babyface, but it’s my same issue with Becky right now. BE original don’t copy the former wrestlers attitude or finishes.
