Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a great week and enjoying all the wrestling. I thought Raw and Smackdown were excellent shows this week and I am really looking forward to Smackville this Sunday.
The Raw reunion was great and I loved the way it started out. John Cena is always great on the mic and has great energy. The Usos VS Revival match was alright. I did like Rikishi in his sons corner but Arn Anderson in Revival corner was something I wish was booked or even Sasha Banks in their corner.
I did think WWE made a big mistake not letting Carmella be the first woman to win the 24/7 title. Kelly and all the divas/legends winning it made it feel less important.
Drew and Cedric have some special potential with this feud. I’m a huge Cedric fans so of course I would like him to stand tall at the end of the feud.
My favorite match on Raw was Joe VS Roman. Joe and Roman both never get enough credit for their in ring work and storytelling, even with this match not so longer it was a really good match. I see potential with these two feuding or teaming.
It was good seeing Mysterio get a win over Sami. I love Mysterio and think him and a Ricochet feud would be amazing.
I thought Bray attacking Mick with his own move was really cool. Even though I’m not too into the gimmick I loved this segment.
I have to say I love everything Natalya has been these past two weeks. Her promos have trumped Becky’s and her babyface along with the storytelling of their past has been good. Becky has taken shots at journalist for calling her arrogant and at the end of the day she can say what she wants and do what she wants. She still left wrestling and she is still not even a top 5 women’s wrestler in ring. Her character is great but I would take Sasha, Bayley, Natalya over her. Becky has been my top 3 wrestler for years but I am not a fan of her the man character. I am hoping Natalya wins in Canada with Bret by her side. I know a lot of fans will freak out if Becky loses but has the women’s raw championship been so not important or competitive in years. Becky can do her thing, but I do feel it’s time for change and to move away from the 4-horsewomen and engage into the future into NXT talent.
A perfect ending to the Raw reunion was tipsy Steve Austin being Stone Cold. Brings memories back and always love seeing and hearing him.
A really good match on Smackdown between Apollo and Shinsuke. I really feel there is something here between these two. Shinsuke is a good heel and Apollo really needs something right now. He is so amazing in ring and I can feel his charisma, really want to see more matches with him.
We had a really short match between Ember and Charlotte but we also had Ember turning her back on Bayley. This will be interesting going into Summerslam, but I really want to see more of Liv and her character update and change.
Moment of the week for me was the HBK/MIZ/Ziggler segment. Oh boy do I want to see Ziggler VS HBK now. Ziggler mad a lot of good points about HBK coming back was a mistake, I really do think ending this story against Ziggler would be perfect.
Solid segment with Orton and Kofi. They are giving us a little story to work with, hopefully we get more because as of right now not too engaged but willing to give this a chance. Match itself was alright but was all for Orton to interfere. Deep down I really wanted Ali VS. Kofi at Summerslam.
I liked Finn’s promo and him VS Bray at Summerslam should be good. I know Finn will be going away for a little while but this was a match we were supposed to get originally so this should be good.
We didn’t get much of a Roman/Owens match but the kicking Drew, Elias and Shane’s ass was pretty damn cool. Owens is over and as much as I do not approve of him using the stunner I love everything he has been doing as a babyface.
