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.

Clash of champions predictions, Sasha/Bayley owning the women’s division, Stone Cold returns

Quick hit: We had the contract signing and the OC interrupt Stone Cold, Rollins and Braun.

Natty Insight: I thought the opening segment was fine, some funny moments with Stone Cold and AJ Styles but it did not get over the match between Braun and Rollins on Sunday. The main event was fine, I am just glad Cedric is getting more wins and TV time.

Quick hit: Charlotte and Becky defeated Sasha and Bayley.

Natty Insight: I thought this match was really good. I really thought Bayley looked like the star of all the 4-horsewomen in this match, she had so many good spots, amazing selling and really held her own in this match. Charlotte had some botches and I wish she would stop using the moonsault, it is just not a good look for her. I wish Becky and Sasha really wouldn’t touch until Sunday besides the blind chair shots or attacks and I wasn’t a fan of Bayley losing but if this means both Sasha and Bayley win Sunday I am for it. I just want that detailed storyline and build.

Quick hit: Mysterio defeated Mentalik.

Natty Insight: Wow, what a match. This was my match of the week. I love Lucha libre and this match really reminded me of the WCW days.

Quick hit: Corbin advances onto the king of the ring finals.

Natty Insight: Pro wrestling claims there is no such thing as heels and faces until we have a tournament like this. I don’t see a reason to have Corbin in the finals. Give fans some good wrestling. The match itself was fine but just disappointing we don’t get wrestlers like Cedric, Ricochet, Ali or Buddy facing each other in the finals. We are getting Gable advancing from Smackdown so holding onto the hope we get Gable as the winner.

Quick hit: Undertaker returned to smackdown to talk about the memories and chokeslam Sami Zayn.

Natty Insight: For some reason I preferred Understaker’s opening segment over Stone Cold’s on Raw and that’s probably because Taker was my Dad’s favorite wrestler so everytime I see him I have that childhood feeling. I liked him attacking a wrestler. Yes it would be cool if it was someone bigger, but it was a cool moment for me. Man is iconic.

Quick hit: Nikki Cross defeated Mandy Rose.

Natty Insight: It’s not that I don’t like these white blondes they push. Mandy, Mella, Bliss, and Lacey but this whole mean girl character or selling their body like it’s the greatest thing in the world is off putting, attractive and makes me sick really. I like Bliss and Nikki together, I prefer them being tag team champions over anyone right now. I have enjoyed Bliss the most out of her career with Nikki because she doesn’t have that mean girl approach.

Quick hit: Rowan and Roman battle with Rowan getting the best of Roman.

Natty insight: For a storyline that they botched this story has been pretty good in my eyes. I loved the brawl and even though I am not the hugest fan of big men, I am looking forward to this match and the story continuing.

Quick hit: Bayley defeats Ember Moon.

Natty Insight: I love Ember, but I would of liked Bayley to squash her or another opponent on the Smackdown roster. Bayley has an aggressive offense and I would like them to take advantage of that. I love Bayley, she is one of my favorite. I am really excited to see how this story continues with her and I am the most excited for Bayley VS Charlotte match, I feel they will steal the show.

Quick hit: Kofi recreates madison square harden with Orton.

Natty Insight: I loved this spot so much, one of the coolest spots in forever. My only thing is I think it would of been cooler for him to win with this at Clash of champions. I really liked this spot though and have loved Kofi’s run.

Cruiserweight championship: 205 live is underrated to me and I love all the guys in this match, but Drew is an amazing heel and amazing in ring. They really should build him up and keep this winning streak going.

United States championship: AJ has been fine as champion, he is doing good heel work but he doesn’t need the title just like his tag team partners don’t. These midcard titles are to build your young guys and build up the talent into superstars. This can keep building but to me Cedric is a start I am going with Cedric for the shocking win. He deserves it.

IC championship: I am going with Shinsuke, you still have Buddy and Ali that could challenge a heel for that title. If Miz wins you don’t have many heels for him to challenge.

SD tag team championships: The draft will be happening soon, I am going with Revival being tag team champions and staying with Smackdown instead of Raw.

Women’s tag team championships: I am going with Nikki and Bliss retaining. We could use a little bit more storyline with these two but I’ve enjoyed Bliss and Nikki together and I would love a Bliss babyface run.

Raw tag team championships: The story with Braun and Rollins has not interested me at all and I am a huge Rollins fan. I have Roode and Ziggler winning the tag titles here. I like them together and have no doubt they can elevate the tag team division.

SD women’s championship: I have Bayley retaining here. Maybe there is Sasha helping her or it ending with chairs but I do not have Bayley losing. I also have this being the match of the night.

Raw women’s championship: I have Sasha Banks beating Becky Lynch. Maybe with some help from Bayley, but I have Sasha being the queen, the boss, the woman, the talk of Raw.

Roman VS. Rowan: I have Roman beating Rowan in a good match but the storyline continuing.

Kofi VS. Randy Orton: This is a hard one, but I think we are gonna get a shocker and Randy Orton will be the new champion.

Rollins VS. Braun: There may be some interfering but I have Rollins retaining somehow.

Bayley turns heel and why I prefer a slow burn and avoiding the promo “you people.” Also, #KOTR continues

Hey everyone! Hope you have had a great week. I didn’t get to catch AEW, but I was able to catch all of WWE thus far this week.

I have really been liking Roode and Ziggler as a tag team, I really hope they win at Clash of Champions. The Rollins and Braun experiment isn’t for me, not something I have been invested in.

I am a huge Natalya fan and am hoping she will get a storyline with Lacey and not just keep losing to give Lacey something.

Good match between Corbin and Cedric. I know they are booking wise aiming for Corbin to win, they could swerve us. My dream pick was Cedric and Ricochet, so a little disappointed but matches have been really good.

I really liked the twist for Joe and Ricochet’s match. I think both are super good and should be in the spotlight, I do fear them doing to double pin is a way to get Corbin to win next week though.

The moment of my life happened! Hehe. I won’t lie I stan, fan girl, in love with Bayley and Sasha so Bayley turning and attacking Becky was pretty much the greatest thing that could of happened to me. 🙂 To me Bayley and Sasha have stolen the week between last night and Tuesday night. I really like the direction they are going with Bayley and honestly the biggest heel turn I have seen in the last 10 years.

Elias defeating Ali was good for the heel side but Ali is really that underdog and he could of really used going to the finals. Then later we get Chad Gable winning and I can now understand it all. I really hope Gable wins the whole thing, he is the perfect underdog and his wrestling is mesmerizing to watch. Very happy for him.

Orton and the Revival are gold together. I wouldn’t mind seeing them as world champion and tag team champions. They have this old school mentality, it really is a perfect pairing. Really enjoying everything they are all doing. My only other dream would be Sasha and Bayley added to that team, but I’m nerdy like that. 🙂

The tag team titles right now are just not in the spotlight. Bliss and Nikki lose to Mandy and Sonya, who I do not see as a threat. I think perfect booking would be to get Natalya and Beth together or put them back on Sasha and Bayley.

The ending to Smackdown I thought was cool. Rowan is a big guy that I could see pushed like a monster, I really liked Rowan going crazy and attacking both Roman and DB. DB turning babyface I feel would be great booking going into Smackdown. Really interested in this story.

Of course the last thing I would like to discuss is my favorite angle going on right now and that is my girl Bayley. Monday’s heel turn was historic, I did not see it coming and it was best heel turn I’ve seen in years to me. I do see a lot of people hating on Bayley’s promo on Smackdown and her chair shirts. First of all shut up and chill the heck down. It’s wrestling, if you really want to pick a part every little thing good luck enjoying life and wrestling for that matter. I liked Bayley’s promo because she didn’t just switch from baby to heel overnight, to me that doesn’t feel organic. Second she didn’t go in doing the promo you people that Becky did. I really liked her discussing hey I do huge and am a hero to your kids and that Sasha is her best friend. I like how she is just keeping it real. This is just the beginning and personally would prefer a slow burn. I am just so excited, happy and blessed to see Sasha and Bayley reignite this women’s division. !

Bayley not getting enough respect and credit, why I liked Sasha Banks promo, and why I love Ziggler and Roode as a team.

Highspots:

  • A lot of the blogs, podcasts and wrestling twitter really hated hard on Sasha Banks promo this week on Raw. Maybe it’s because Sasha is my favorite wrestler, but I loved the promo. Think about it, Sasha and Bayley were passionate about tag team wrestling, yes but they were also very passionate about feuding with each other and both being singles stars. The women’s tag team was a backup plan for them to make something great that they basically created. Bayley and Sasha both belong in the main event and as champions. I loved Sasha’s promo about being the greatest and everything she said. Think about who did Becky have to face next besides Sasha? Sasha really saved this Raw women’s division. What I would love is if we had Sasha and Bayley both champions on Raw and Smackdown, but that’s just my dream. 🙂
  • I absolutely loved the tag team turmoil match on Raw. Paring Roode and Zigs together was perfect and them being the iron men of the tag team turmoil really proved that they are two of our best in ring wrestlers in the world. I am really looking forward to their tag team developing and the chemistry and good matches we see in the future.
  • My favorite match this week was Cedric defeating Cesaro. Really if you gave these two a story they could have an insane feud. Cedric is so good at his facials, selling and in ring work, he would be my pick to become the new Universal, WWE champion in the future, to me he has everything and I enjoy watching him every single time.
  • I’m enjoying this Randy Orton/Kofi story we have going on right now, currently it is the best. I really hope this ends with Kofi coming out on top and I know everyone wants the new day to split up but I Just don’t. Yes BIG E is the big guy that WWE would typically push and Cedric and Kofi are the little guys. I just like them all together and I love the brotherhood.
  • Good match between Buddy and Ali, I personally would of liked it to go longer and it isn’t the best out of all the matches these two have had with each other but as far as a smackdown live match goes it was good. I was surprised they went with Ali, but very curious to see where this goes and where Buddy’s storyline with Roman and DB goes.
  • Bayley had two matches this week. One on Raw with Nikki and one on Smackdown with Lacey. Both matches were very good, just no story attached to them. I think Lacey has a cool gimmick and she is athletic, but everything in ring and facials to me is off. When everyone was talking about how good Lacey has looked and improving, I’m not gonna say she isn’t but she is in ring with one of the best wrestlers WWE has in the women’s division. I am sick of Bayley not getting the respect she deserves. You can like the model type girls or the girls cakes with makeup and wearing their bootie shorts and bra but Bayley kills it in ring like no other.
  • I’m intrigued with Roman’s attacker story, I think this slow burn is something WWE hasn’t done in a while and it’s working for me. I think Seth, Buddy, DB, Rowan are too obvious of attackers but I would like a big surprise like maybe Usos are someone just out of nowhere.

Natty Insight:

  • I am really against a Braun and Seth Rollins feud. First of all these fans are horrible and treat Rollins like crap, booing him and just not responding well. Second Braun looks at that Universal title like a creep, it’s almost uncomfortable to watch. I am also one of the few that never thought Braun should be champion, yes he is a monster but promo and in ring wise I have never felt it click.
  • I just saw AJ VS Braun for US title. I have no desire seeing these two fight again. Give AJ some competition, like an Cedric, or babyface that could use the build.
  • I am just not feeling babyface Miz or Owens. Both of these men are top heels but as far as babyfaces goes, it’s just not there and I don’t think it ever will. Some are organic faces and some aren’t.
  • Last thing I will vent about is the 24/7 championship. When it was on R-Truth I thought it was funny and entertaining. Drake and Elias don’t entertain me with it and eventually the comedy fades which I feel it is doing right now. I think putting it on the women would make it interesting for a little bit longer.

Why I feel Sasha Banks didn’t go to far, my excitement for NXT, and evolution

Highspots:

  • NXT going live to Wednesday nights on USA network is huge. Not only will the rating be competing with AEW, but Triple H really has the audience and spotlight to prove why he should be in charge after Vince decided to retire. I think this is really good for wrestling all together and I am excited to see the future of NXT.
  • I been talking about wanting a deep story with Kof and him and Orton have glued me in. Revival and Orton together is a deep threat and a future tag team in the making. Also the sympathy of one of my favorites Xaiver selling a leg break is a great add to this story. I am all in on this storyline right now.
  • I know my girl Bayley gets a lot of hate, but you all have to be invested into Charlotte vs Bayley. I know a lot think that Charlotte will automatically win this feud but I disagree. Charlotte has had titles, media and shine she should be thinking like Daniel and start putting over talent not bury them. I would love to see Bayley turn heel and or win this feud somehow. To me Bayley is the most underrated wrestler in the WWE. Her wrestling skills are incredible and yes her promos could use some work but she is not writing her own promos. I way of Bayley and Sasha reuniting at some point would be a great way to book Survivor Series.
  • Sami and Shinsuke together as a team or Sami as the manager is something that really really intrigues me. WWE has a hard time developing talent that doesn’t speak fluent english and I think Sami with Shinsuke could be gold.
  • Buddy defeating DB on Smackdown was a simple display of that you don’t always have to be the guy that you can help and put talent over. I loved this match and I am loving everything Buddy Murphy is doing right now.
  • I absolutely loved Ziggler vs Roman, it was my favorite match of the week. I would love a program with these two and with the right storyline, Zigs being Roman’s attacker would be great. Sure Dean returning to attack or even Rollins would be surprising but it’s all about the story for me.
  • We have new tag team champions and this could be an interesting storyline. Still feeling on this one. Curious if they turn Rollins or Braun or if we get babyface vs babyface for that title.
  • A lot of people online were complaining about Natalya’s dad being brought up in this story and the line that Sasha used was “go to hell and tell your daddy I said HI.” First of all I can bet Sasha was uncomfortable saying that line and that Natalya pitched the idea. I can see if from both sides of there is no payoff why bring this tragedy into a storyline. I can also see the side of wanting to bring real life stories into WWE and heels have been very weak these last couple years and a real heel would say some horrible shit like this. Sasha is a great heel and what I really like is there is more than wrestler in this storyline. She has a story with Natalya and she also has a story with Becky. This is the hottest feud in WWE right now and it hasn’t even started.

Natty Insight:

  • I like the concept of the king of the ring tournament, but I personally wanted long, competitive, false finishing matches. King of like cruiserweight classic and G1.
  • Babyface Kevin Owens and babyface Miz is not for me. I don’t have sympathy for baby faces that complain and bring up money. You are in the WWE, a superstar. I don’t think the fans should believe or even think they are less.
  • For me the Rey Mysterio retirement tease did nothing for me. First he was backstage and second the crying for some reason didn’t make me feel bad for him. It felt like a cheesy soap opera and I didn’t dig it.
  • Women’s tag team titles aren’t there for me yet. I think Bliss and Nikki are great together but I don’t see it long term. If they used boss n hug correct and IIConics that could of been something special but they wasted it. There needs to be more tag teams for this to be taken seriously.
  • I’m not the biggest comedy fan unless it’s my new day. The 24/7 championship was cute and had it’s laughs at the beginning, but I am over it at this point. I like R-Truth but Drake and the other come off and not as a superstar, unrealistic and honestly embarrassing.
  • There have been rumors that Evolution 2 isn’t happening due to not having enough talent. I disagree! Your potential card could of had tag team titles with Natalya and Beth vs. IIconics vs. Bliss and Nikki vs the Bellas, could of had Lita vs. Charlotte, could of had Bayley vs anyone on that women’s roster, and also could of had Becky vs Sasha headlining with also surprise appearances from legends the future of nxt.
  • I am probably the only one, but the fiend isn’t a character that I invest or care about. I know so many are going crazy and thinking this is the best thing in wrestling in forever, I Just don’t see it or feel it. I was a huge Undertaker fan,but Kane, Boogieman or any of the supernatural dark characters were never interesting to me.

Sasha Banks returns and so does’t women’s wrestling, Summerslam aftermath, Shane/KO continuing, Rollins emotional win and Cedric VS Drew

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has had a great four days of wrestling. I thought takeover and Summerslam were extremely good and the return of Sasha Banks on Raw seriously made my week. My favorite moment on takeover was watching Candice Larae wrestler, she is one of my favorites in NXT and I can’t wait to see more from her. I thought Summerslam was a solid show but my two favorite matches were Rollins VS Brock and Becky VS Natalya. To me those two matches had the best wrestling and storytelling. Got to give Brock credit for selling for Rollins and putting together a lengthy amazing match. I was very happy for Seth Rollins. He is my favorite wrestler and with all the negative reaction he has been getting I could tell this win meant everything to him which made me very happy. The Natalya vs Becky match was amazing to me. The submissions, selling and story told in that match was absolutely incredible.

I enjoyed parts of Raw and that’s what made it a must see show for me. I liked Rollins thanking the fans and his little promo. I would of enjoyed more aggression and emotion out of him and not shaking AJ’s hand but I am all for AJ VS Rollins in a detailed storyline.

Samoa Joe beat Sami really quick which I felt bad for Sami but if this is a slow face build for Joe I am all for it.

This is a piece of the show I did not like at all. Zigs is one of my favorite in ring wrestlers and what they are doing to him right now of making him a whiny loser makes me sad.

I’m liking the potential storyline we are getting with Mysterio. I don’t know if this is teasing retirement or for him to continue with Andrade but very interested.

Match of Raw for me was Cedric VS Drew. Wow this match was amazing and I am so glad they let Cedric do his thing. IF you don’t consider Cedric a star after that I am not sure what to tell you. I been following him since the cruiserweight classic and I just want him pushed, one of my favorites.

Bliss and Cross as tag team champions right now is good, I like it. This is a good slow build story until one of them turns on each other.

Moment of the whole damn week and weekend was Sasha Banks returning on Monday Night Raw. She first attacked Natalya which I wasn’t the biggest fan of but it did the work. I would of preferred Becky cutting a promo and Sasha attacking her but oh boy this did the job. Sasha was using chairs on Becky and trash talking, this was everything and more. The best women’s beat down since maybe the golden era with Trish and Lita. Glad Sasha Banks is back and sorry if I offend any of the other females but women’s division was lost and not I feel it is back.

It looks like Owens and Shane storyline is continuing. Not something I am really invested into but as long as there is a story I will give it a shot.

Charlotte and Moon was a good match but not sure why Ember who lost to the champion is against Charlotte who beat Trish. I really feel for Ember, they keep burying her.

Good promo by new day, they always entertain me. I really hope Xaiver gets to be part of the king of the ring. I love everything Kofi has been doing, I would like more aggression but really interested in the Orton feud continuing.

Wow, Buddy Murphy is no longer a secret. What an amazing match with Roman Reigns. These cruiserweights or former ones are really shining first Ali, then Cedric and now Buddy, I am really loving it.

Joe VS Owens was all for Owens to get screwed over by Elias. Honestly I was not ever really invested into this match so I was alright with the ending. I am not sure how I feel about KO being treated like Austin and Shane being treated like Vince. I don’t see Owens as an underdog so it’s an interesting story we are in right now.

Great backstage segment with Rowan and DB attacking Buddy and making him admit he lied about Roman’s attacker.
