I hope everyone is having a great week. I will get into the Royal Rumble and how it was my favorite in years. I will also talk Raw and NXT this week.
My favorite match at the royal rumble was the women’s royal rumble match, I absolutely fell in love with that match. With seeing Trin back, to Bianca’s magical superstar performance to Charlotte winning her first Rumble, it was really everything. Now if I was dream booking it I would of had Beth win it to face Becky Lynch or have Bianca win it to face Bayley. That’s just me but really it was a perfect Rumble for me. Cannot say enough about Bianca’s performance and how she looked like a main roster, main event star. With that said our winner was Charlotte and honestly I was fine with it. I am not all in on Shayna vs. Becky and Charlotte winning gives her a royal rumble win and helps the 4-horsewomen and her and their legacy.
I also really enjoyed the men’s Rumble. I just loved the storytelling we had this year. I have really been enjoying Drew’s baby face run so far and I feel it is his time and the perfect moment for him to defeat Brock and to have a good long feud with Seth.
Another match I really enjoyed was Asuka vs. Becky. I thought this was Becky’s best match since facing Sasha at hell in a cell.
I have been having a really hard time being invested into Smackdown unless it’s Bayley or Sasha on my TV but Raw has really been my favorite show recently. I loved the opening of Raw and the ending of Raw, both very powerful.
First, Drew’s opening promow as great it didn’t feel scripted and you could really feel his emotion. It was good to see him dominate a match and a good sign to see Brock attack Drew and be invested. Really excited for this match and hoping for it to main event mania.
It was good to see MVP get one last match with WWE, I was really happy to see that.
Char looked good against Asuka but she won the Rumble I would of had her just beat Asuka. Also the Becky promo came off very heelish. If she trying to be Conor she might start getting boos with that swagger. I also liked straight fire Becky better but we will see where this character goes. If she don’t turn heel I feel they need to put title on someone else, she is better at chasing.
I am really hoping to see Liv move on from Lana because she has so much talent in that ring, and oh by the way her finisher is fire.
The ending of Raw was the biggest ending to Raw in a long time. Edge gave a promo that was so deep it got me in tears and Orton made it deeper with him hinting at battling drug problems. Then out of nowhere Orton attacks Edge’s neck. A good believable attack, I am so invested into these two right now.
Really liked NXT this week but have Kai lose her first real match as a heel felt not right for me, would like her to get some wins. Also I am so into Djokovic right now, he is such a huge star and I will never say no to him vs. Lee.
