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.

MITB PREDICTIONS:

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.

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.

I thought Raw and Smackdown were both good shows this week. We are going in the right direction with storytelling and characters as we head into Survivor Series.

I thought the start of Raw was the best start of a wrestling show this week. I really enjoyed Brock being Brock and looking like a badass and I really really enjoyed Mysterio attacking Brock with a bat and making the beat down look really realistic. I appreciate the effort in the storytelling. You can tell this was planned. You had Brock attack Mysterio and his son then when Cain couldn’t get the job done, Mysterio goes in for himself. This storyline I am the most invested in and can’t wait and am really hoping Mysterio becomes champion.

Last week I liked Charlotte and Natalya as a tag team, but this past week Charlotte acted more like a heel and I didn’t feel the chemistry between them. This is something I would build to for them winning tag team champions, not just take it off Asuka and Kari right now.

Buddy and Cedric had a fine match, not the best of their matches but I liked how they gave them time. I really hope they have something planned for Cedric because he is such a star to me and one of my favorites to watch in ring.

I really liked Triple H and Seth Rollins promo about if Seth will join NXT or not. I liked that we had a match between Cole and Rollins, but what I would of liked better is if Rollins would of joined team NXT and then after Survivor Series had a program with Cole.

The backstage promo with Becky Lynch and Shayna was flawless. Both looked like stars and right now to me Shayna looks more bad ass than Becky, and Charlotte combined

We had some other tag team matches on Raw, but there was no storyline really attached to it, what I would call filler. Raw was really good with storytelling and certainly had great moments but I am still looking for that show where we don’t have that filler added in.

Smackdown was my favorite show of the week though with all that said. Smackdown really has been the show for me since they moved to Fox. I am not a Corbin fan and I really don’t get people thinking he looks like a star. I thought Corbin in NXT as the biker guy looked like a star but not this guy. With that said his promo was great and it was a good start to Smackdown. Corbin beating Roman was also a big surprise and this is what I have been loving about Smackdown is non predictable.

Got a really cool surprise and amazing tag team action with New Day becoming new tag team champions. I really liked this move, first of all New Day is amazing, second of all Kofi deserves this and I loved commentary playing up that also and lastly I have the softest part in my heart for Xaiver Woods, I love they did this for him.

Tyson and Braun possibly as a tag team screams money to me. This is the spot you put Braun in until they actually pull the trigger as his as champion.

We did have two filler matches that didn’t have story but did good for the talent. Shinsuke and Cesaro defeating Ali and Shorty G. This was a good match and I am very interested in the Daniel Bryan and Sami storyline, but with Fiend attacking DB I am just so interested in where this is going. With that said Ali, Cesaro and Shorty G are just kinda there with nothing to do and I want these guys to have something. The other filler was Dana and Mella defeating Fire and Desire. To me fire and desire is dying out and having them lose every time they are on TV is not helping at all. There was a point where I thought Mandy was the next one they would be pushing, but that turned to be Lacey instead. I am a huge Dana fan and am glad she got to show off her talent. Carmella to me is a better heel but she still works good regardless.

My favorite match maybe wasn’t the best match of the night but I got to see my two favorites Sasha and Bayley. I thought Bayley was great on commentary and I thought Sasha looked like the biggest star in the company coming out to that Snoop Dogg remix for her entrance. Sasha looked good and got the win against Nikki and I loved that. Sasha always adds more moves to her moveset and I respect that. That girl never settles, always ups her game. I could of done without the ending of Shayna attacking Bayley again, this just happened last week and I am curious why she hasn’t attacked Becky yet. There is a lot to look forward to coming this Monday and Friday.

I enjoyed WWE and NXT a lot this week. NXT really stepped it’s game up with storytelling and honestly I love NXT the way it is. I preferred it on the WWE Network while following Triple H’s way. With it on USA network I have been trying my best to catch it live and I did catch it live this week and really enjoyed it.

I liked Raw this week the most, but I did think all the shows were solid and are starting to give us more storytelling which I love. Ric Flair is what wrestling needs more of, his off script amazing promo on Raw was everything. I thought Drew VS Ricochet was a very solid match, but Ric really was the star power during this match.

Two segments that I liked on Raw were first Cain attacking Shelton and having Mysterio’s back. I love Cain and am more excited for his match with Brock than Tyson Fury and Braun. The second segment that a lot of people have been hating on is the Lana and Lashley going out to dinner with Rusev interfering the romantic evening. I can’t lie, I am a sucker for these romantic, love triangle storylines. I loved it when Lita, Edge and Matt Hardy had their storyline and as of right now I like this storyline.

Aleister Black has really been an NXT call up that I have been interested in. Ever since he was at NXT having matches with Andrade I have been very intrigued by his character and feel he can give us something different but cheesy. Another good match during Raw was Andrade and Sin Cara, I would like to see a lot more between these two. They could make a great story with these two. The semi main event of the evening I thought was amazing. I am a huge Rollins fan but Rollins having more edge and at times heel antics has been really good as of late. His match with Humburto was my personal favorite match of the week. These two are so good in ring and I know they could do more magic together. The main event of the evening was also solid, it was all for the return of Kevin Owens. I am looking forward to the AJ VS Kevin Owens feud, there is so much they can create with these two. Also Street Profits are amazing, not only on the mic but in ring. I am so excited to see more of these guys.

NXT was so amazing this week and since they have moved to USA Network this has been my favorite episode. Show started out fire with Bianca and Rhea battling for who is the top woman they feel should face Shanya. I really really liked the match and thought in a way they did protect Bianca a little bit. Bianca shouldn’t be losing so I liked that they protected her. I did find it a little weird in a way that maybe Bianca may be going heel with Lo helping her or trying. With all of this said Bianca is a damn star and I really hope she is the one to beat Shanya.

Another match I really liked was team kick defeating Marina and Duke. I am not a fan at all of the 4 horsewomen of MMA but I am a huge fan of team kick and am super excited for them facing the tag team champions Asuka and Kari.

I don’t think I have seen such a crazy, intense, storytelling match in a long time. Strong, Keith and Dominik killed it! I loved this match so much and this is my match of the week for everyone to check out. I have to say I am really getting hooked to Dominik, he has the look that Vince liked and oh my god is his promos and in ring work fire. I also loved everything Keith Lee and Strong did in this match. Keith Lee and Dominik did some crazy spots that really made me lose my breath for a second.

As much as the main event got my heart beating fans then we end the show with Finn Balor turning heel and possibly joining Undisputed era. What an ending, what a cliff hanger. This is and NXT is pro wrestling. 🙂

I thought Smackdown had its moments, but I did like Raw better this week. I selfishly just wanted more Bayley and Sasha I think. 🙂 I thought the start of Raw on Miz TV was alright, but Flair and Hogan did better promos on Raw. This was all to set up a match later in the night.

I liked the tag team action we got on Smackdown and I love the New Day but I really want Zigs and Roode to be tag team champions or in the picture so I was glad they got the win. I am also very interested in the Daniel Bryan story is he back to babyface yes movement DB or is he joining Sami and Shinsuke. Honestly as bad as I want babyface Daniel him joining Sami and Shinsuke would be really iconic.

They did Cross defeating Mandy is an ok wrestling match but what was really the highlight for me was Bayley and Sasha really owning Michael Cole and Corey Graves on commentary. I wanted more from Bayley, but I am patient. A really intense segment just made Crown Jewel a must watch show, Brock attacks Rey’s son again and then attacks Cain and Rey. Cain’s promo even though it was in spanish made him look like one badass motherfucker that is going to murder Brock. I am so excited and cannot wait. The night ended with the maine vent tag match and it was a descent match, It’s always good to see Roman and Ali in action, but honestly this is the match I am least looking forward to at Crown Jewel.



Another full week of wrestling and I thought Smackdown was the show to watch this week. We are getting character development and potential of more stories being told.

To start off Raw we had a solid match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte. Yes Charlotte has won the title 10 times but her losing record in the past 2 years has been high. I am starting to feel bad for Charlotte. She was promoted as the greatest women’s wrestler but they been having her title reigns be not relevant and her loss record high. with that said I do no have a desire to see Becky and Charlotte having another feud. For me personally Becky is not interesting and Charlotte has lost her idenity.

Really good wrestling on Raw I really liked Ali VS. Andrade, Ricochet VS Shelton and Buddy VS Cedric. I really thought all those matches were amazing. I also liked the women tag titles getting some attention. Asuka is such a star right now, I’d put her in the title picture against Becky.

AEW for me is having a hard time developing characters, creating stars, stories and introducing us to what is different about the product. The one match I did really enjoy on the show this week was Riho VS Britt. I think this match showed Britt is still green, but oh boy Riho was an incredible babyface in that match and really carried the match.

I haven’t watched NXT yet but so far my favorite show of the week has been Smackdown. This was the most solid show for me this week.

I really loved the way Smackdown started with Roman VS Shin, it was a very good match. Corbin interfering was something I wasn’t expecting. What I liked about this is there wasn’t a tag after the interference and we didn’t find out this match would be happening until the second hour, I really liked that part.

I loved Shorty G dominating his match and his promo after the match was really really good. He is a character that is still developing. I like the effort in this character and with Vince high on him, I’m excited for his future.

Amazing tag team action on Smackdown, this is just a taste of what we will be getting at crown jewel. Right now the Smackdown tag team division is stacked and they need to tag advantage of that.

I absolutely loved Sasha and Bayley’s promo on miz TV. I thought the promo was perfect to calling out the fans, to saying the wrestlers are lazy, to saying how she was treated. Only thing I think would’ve been cool to add is first of all beat up the Miz and second of all to address how WWE made her me this happy person but wow hands down for best segment of the week.

I thought the 6 pack challenge was fine but Nikki winning just feels like going steps backwards. She has had chances this year and her and Bliss seem to always be right behind Bayley all the time. I would of liked a story between Bayley and Dana or even Bayley and Mella.

I liked the tag team match for the main event I do believe Roman should be in the main event picture and main eventing Smackdown but maybe adding a story to this would of made it more intriguing. I thought tonight would of been a perfect night for DB to attack Roman.



HIAC predictions, FOX premiere, AEW, NXT and Hulk Hogan thoughts

I hope everyone has had a good week and is excited for hell in a cell tomorrow. The week has been packed an I am honestly exhausted. We had Raw, AEW, NXT, Smackdown and now hell in a cell tomorrow. I thought Raw started out hot, I liked AEW’s first match on the card and Riho winning first women’s title, I loved all of NXT and my favorite show of the week was Smackdown.

I really liked the start to Raw with Brock destroying Rey and his Son. The storytelling here was good and it gave me more to look forward to, it left suspense for me because I knew there had to be a story.

I liked that Sasha Banks got a solid win over Alexa Bliss, but I like these two in the past and would of liked a longer match.

Miz TV was setup for team Hulk VS Team Flair. I thought the setup and promo was good, Flair can talk better than anyone on that roster. I am just not a fan of Hulk on TV, WWE promoting and uses Hulk. If Hulk would give even an apology to the Universe or the wrestlers without blaming everyone but himself for saying insensitive, horrible, racists comments I would be more forgiving. With him using excuses and saying he is sorry for how it happened but not taking responsibility for his actions is very hurtful and frustrating.

My favorite match on Raw was AJ VS. Cedric. I know Cedric has lost all of his matches with AJ but I would really love another time added to hell in a cell. These two just have that in ring chemistry and I really love watching them wrestle. Cedric is one of my favorite wrestlers so I really would love for him to capture the gold.

A lot of people were heated over this on the internet but it is a new storyline and maybe I am a sucker for soap opera storylines in WWE but this Lana/Lashley/Rusev storyline I am really intrigued by. We will see where it goes, but I’m a sucker for a love triangle in the squared circle.

NXT this week was a very solid show the match I enjoyed the most on the card with Candice Larae VS Shayna. I really wanted Candice to win this match but hopefully we get a takeover with these two. Candice is so damn good in that ring, I really loved that match.

AEW had its debut show and even though they did not have storylines or introduce their characters or brand to the TNT network that well, they had good in ring quality. I liked Sammy VS. Cody a lot, mainly because Sammy is one of my favorite wrestlers. The other match I really enjoyed with Riho winning the women’s championship. I adore her.

Smackdown was a A+ show, I really enjoyed the show. It had this big star show quality to it, it really gave me butterflies. The way the show opened was perfect. Becky got that rub by the Rock and both put on great promos and got over with Corbin. I would say all three wrestles got over in this segment. I am still not on the Corbin train though, I think he can talk but as far as a look and in ring goes along with character, I feel a disconnect.

The first match on Smackdown on Fox was with the four horsewomen, this was perfect and magical. You had the star quality of Becky, you had Charlotte’s athleticism displayed and you had the boss n hug connection getting their spots in and getting over both programs and feuds with these ladies.

The Owens and Shane ladder match was my favorite match on the card, this was such a great match. This match really made me fall in love with Kevin Owens all over again. This was really the greatest hits of a ladder match, felt it was a good display for Fox.

I love seeing Roman doing his superman dive and loved seeing Roman wrestle in general. Roman is a star regardless of what fans and critics feel and think, I actually really wanted Roman VS Kofi for Fox premiere but we did not get that. So it made new everywhere of how upset wrestling fans were online over Kofi getting squashed by Brock. I can understand and see the frustration but then again if fans are tuning in for the first time or haven’t watched wrestling in forever and see a small athletic guy making new day jokes they probably don’t take him seriously or see him as a star even though I feel Kofi was and still is. I just can see and Understand Brock squashing could make the show feel more legit and real. I really enjoyed the full show, I wasn’t bored or looking at my phone one time.

We only have a couple matches announced right now, I am assuming we will get more but it has been a trend for WWE making their PPV’s shorter. I am fine with it but I like them at least 4 hours long, I personally like watching a lot of wrestling.

Bayley VS. Charlotte: I love Bayley with all my heart, but I Just have a feeling Charlotte is winning this, fox has really been promoting her.

Sasha VS. Becky: I know a lot of people think Becky is going to Fox, but Becky will go where her soon to be husband is going and I feel that will be Raw. I am taking Becky to retain and Sasha to be drafted to Smackdown.

Roman and Bryan VS Rowan and Harper: I have Roman and Bryan winning this match. Not much to this, I feel Bryan needs to be a babyface for the Smackdown brand right now.

Fiend VS. Rollins: I am taking Seth Rollins. I know a lot of people will be upset, but I am having Undertaker interfering or Rollins just stomping this monster multiple times.

Next week’s bundle of wrestling, Sasha/Bayley and Gable praise.

I really enjoyed this weeks bundle of wrestling. It’s so crazy because by next week we will be having wrestling every day of the week except on Thursday’s which there is some independent promotions on that day actually. I love wrestling, but I have this loyalty to WWE and that is what I will be mainly sticking with.

Two matches I really enjoyed on NXT were Lacey Lane vs Ripley and Kai returning back to NXT after injury. To me Lacey Lane is such a star, she has such a unique style and her charisma is out of this world. For Dakota Kai to me she is the rick steamboat of the women’s division, she is the perfect babyface to beat Shanya in my opinion. I also liked the main event a lot, I love Tyler Breeze and am the hugest Kushida fan.

For Raw I liked Sasha Banks and Bayley because they are my favorites and I love everything they do. Sasha always puts on good matches and her and Nikki was no different. I thought Gable VS. Corbin was also very good. I love Gable and just hope the rumors of Vince being high on him is true, he is my favorite in ring wrestler right now. I was also really excited that it will be Mysterio VS Rollins next Monday for the premiere. I really like how they are treating wrestling like a series and making series premieres. The Fiend stuff keeps happening is how I will phrase this. I remember when he first came out everyone was so giddy and marking out and some still are. To me it feels like a guy in a halloween mask. That’s just my own opinion and it’s something I have accepted I just won’t get into. With that said I hope Undertaker returns to cost the match because I really like Rollins as champion.

A lot of people really hated on the Smackdown show but I enjoyed it out of all the show this week. First of all the Rowan vs Daniel match was incredible. I can’t help it, my heart loved Daniel as a babyface and right now I will not settle for less. I liked Roman coming down to help Daniel but would like some apology by Roman to Daniel. Gable had a good squash match and I will never complain about watching Gable wrestle. I really enjoyed Sasha and Bayley defeating Carmella and Charlotte. I liked how Charlotte kept her heel vibe with her and kind of just watched Carmella tap out. I thought this showing by Bayley and Sasha have been one of their best as far as tag team action goes. I have been really enjoying Bayley’s heel turn a lot. I like the small things she does, just like when it looked like she was going to help Mella up but hits her hard. I really just love everything with Sasha and Bayley. I’m not against Shane and Owens storyline, I know a lot of people aren’t for it but it’s been the only story I have felt invested into. I love Kevin Owens and I love Ladder matches so that match next week on fox is going to be amazing! Match of the week for me was Ali VS. Shinsuke, really loved this match, encourage everyone to check this one out. Lastly how we went off the air for Smackdown was awesome!! Everyone knows I love Sasha Banks but her whipping Becky’s ass was fucking amazing. I know everyone still loves Becky and how she is still over, but right now I think the best thing that could happen for the women’s division would be Sasha and Bayley both the champions and to take the women’s tag titles too. Just give me as much of Sasha and Bayley before they put the title on Becky all the way till Wrestlemania.

Lots of good wrestling this week and like I said more and more and more wrestling to come. Monday’s will be Raw on USA which I will always watch, has been my favorite show since I was a little girl. Tuesday’s will be Impact on AXS TV, I love impact and think that their storytelling has been the best out of all the company’s. Wednesday’s will be NXT and AEW which I’m sure interest lots of people, but to me it’s no way. Friday will be Smackdown which is another one I will for sure be checking out. Watching WWE on a Friday night, just gives me happy memories. As far as Tuesdays and Wednesdays go I will wing it. I have a job and I love wrestling so much but I do not want to drain myself either. I think Impact will surprise a lot of people as well as NXT. As you see I have not mentioned AEW and that has to do with a few things. I do not support AEW. First of all their shots at WWE over and over again while they are saying they support wrestling, the fans and accept all wrestling. Second they do not have many wrestlers of color and do not promote any. Brandy is the only one promoted. Lastly I do not believe that they believe in their women’s division right now and honestly there storytelling has been poor. Until they start respecting what’s important to my heart, I won’t support.
