The Things That Stop Me Sleeping (05/13/17)

Published

on

Last week was a good week. Sleep every night, no tossing and turning, I felt refreshed. So much so, I was looking forward to the week’s events from my side of the pond. And there were some good things. The tag turmoil match made Cesaro and Sheamus look like badasses. The Uso’s continued their fine run of promo’s after finally being cut loose this year. And NXT was a very solid hour with a great (TV main event) No.1 contenders match. But there was still enough of the baffling, the annoying, and the downright nonsensical that stopped me getting my eight hours in peace. Let’s have a look at the sleep preventing issues from this week in WWE.

 

The No-Angle angle

Too many Chiefs

So Kurt Angle wasn’t on Raw this week. I’ve enjoyed Angle’s presence on TV since his return after Wrestlemania but the prospect of a week without an authority figure would have been a welcome occurrence. Instead, we had two one night only GM’s. Progressing the feud between Miz and Ambrose is a good thing but it could have been done without giving them barely wielded power.

Ambrose’s declaration that he wanted more action and less talking was a fine idea, but it surprisingly didn’t work out too well. I’m all for more in ring action on Raw but once it had finished it was easy to see that there hadn’t actually been any more matches than usual. Worse still, on a night without an authority figure, Ambrose had a relatively muted although prominent night.


You would think that on a night without a warden, the ‘lunatics running the asylum’ would have been the perfect environment for Ambrose. Instead we got an Ambrose dedicated to downplaying the threat of The Miz. This was an opportunity missed, especially considering the vacuum at the top that now exists on Raw. This could have been an episode to highlight the need for Angle, as well as showcase and prepare Ambrose for a renewed assault at the top end of the card. Instead we got the entertainer mid card act, rather than the fighter who belongs at the top of the card. If they couldn’t give us this with the shackles off for the night, when can they? Or rather, will they?

 

What happened to the match?

I quite like Kalisto’s unwillingness to back down in front of the Monster Among Men. Yes, there’s only ever going to be one long term winner but it does Kalisto no harm in standing up for himself. Whilst the crowd didn’t seem to care about his entrance during the speaking heavy opening, (and less said about his theme music the better) he was picking the perfect time to attack. Strowman should be more confident about taking people on one handed. Do monsters hold up their sore paw and scurry off? I’ve never met one but it doesn’t seem likely.

Negates to mention he’s a ninja!

So we got the match. Or rather, the start of one. Moments after the match had started, Roman Reigns came down to pick apart his equally injured rival. Not the most gallant act but if people are gonna boo you anyway, why not? Strowman and Reigns continued their two man destruction efforts and Kalisto……well he just wasn’t there anymore.

What happened to the match? I know the bigger issue is Strowman and Reigns but for Kalisto to so effectively melt into the background and fade away was really strange, although a little bit ninja. By the second Superman punch he was just gone. Does this mean Strowman won, by the letter of the law a DQ? Just a bit of acknowledgement would have been nice.

 

It would be Rude to turn one

#TeamRude are pretty awesome to be fair.

Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax became TV buds for as long as it takes Nia to get her title shot. Ignoring the similarities to the nature of Mickie James’ return, this should have been a positive moment. Following either on Twitter or Instagram would show that the two are very close, so far as to adding #TeamRude to most of their combined antics.

So it must be nice to have your travel buddy and best friend as the newest part to your act. And I’d love to be happy about it, I really would. I’m a big fan of both Alexa and Nia but I can’t help thinking that a doubles act would lead to more problems than awesome things happening for the both of them. Both want the title, to keep or to win it. It’s an intricate part of both their characters. Whilst it can be put off for a while, there’s no getting away from the fact that their paths would have to cross at some point.

And how they get to that point is my concern. There are a lot of ways WWE could chose to get there, but I don’t see them picking a way that keeps them both heels. Nia needs to stay heel, she needs to tear through the opposition, the aNIAlator, the billion dollar smile on a wrecking ball; everything that has worked so far for her and undoubtedly will in the future revolves around keeping her in the black hat. Alexa is currently one of the most compelling acts on Raw and has carved out a special spot for herself as chief antagonist in her division. She cannot be allowed to go face either. I have no doubt that both would make compelling faces in the right circumstances, sometime in the future. But right now, WWE needs them to be heels.

Not Mean Girls, not BFF’S, just Bad Women, please.

Whether or not Sasha Banks turns, the women’s division needs it’s brute and goddess on the same side, not slowly going against each other. As WWE has proved with the Sasha Banks turn-that-is-not-yet, timing is everything. Nia and Alexa are far from finished articles and will have much more room to breathe and develop in ring and in front of cameras by staying on the dark side. If one turns soon, it would be too quick. Look at Randy Orton after he left Evolution to see an example of it sometimes being too soon to go face. As entertaining as they are, for different reasons, the coming together of them on screen could be great, but only if the focus is heavily made to keep them bad to the bone. Anything else would just be rude.

 

Lifeless London

I often have a sense of trepidation when WWE comes to do its live Raw and Smackdown shows over in the UK.  Mostly because it seems that WWE thinks we are stuck somewhere between critical points of American intervention – somewhere between a powdered wig kicked out of the colonies during the war of Independence and the 1916 Tommy in the trenches of World War 1. Point is, only people in London think the UK is encompassed by London, no one says cheerio and we live very much in 2017. I may be a bitter Northerner….

Unusually quiet on Raw.

Ranting aside, this week was a different kind of embarrassing. The crowd for Raw was the flattest I’ve seen in a long while. Typically, the crowds in the UK are our redeeming feature. Boisterous and enthusiastic, they add something to the show, without trying to hijack it. This week on Raw, the crowd could not have cared less by previous standards.

Added to the low standard of Raw this week, it made for a struggling 3 hours. Raw after Mania usually has a substantial number of Brits. In fact, the people I know who have been to Wrestlemania (weekend) all report meeting nothing but Brits. The crowds at UK shows are generally politer versions of those gloryhogs. This week was just a letdown.

 

Deadly Titles

I have spent most of my life pondering a great mystery that faded from my view. Out of sight, out of mind. But two instances have occurred in the last two weeks and I wondered if anyone can help me out on this. Why on Earth are title belt attacks coming back and why are we to believe they’re so deadly?

At least it’s more believable than his Bryan-esque kicks.

Seriously. Mahal hit Orton with the title belt and I thought, fair enough, he’s an 80’s character, I can live with it. Then The Miz did it this week and my mind began to boggle all over again. It was bad enough in the late 90’s, when merely being touched by a title belt, regardless of velocity, was enough to knock all but the toughest of headliners comatose. They could cut people open, and not just because of the jagged, barely held together nature of the Hardcore Title belt.

But it became really pathetic towards the end of the last phase. Now, with even less metal on the actual belt itself, and the fact that it’s 2017, it’s even harder to accept a title belt shot as a legitimate attack. I suppose it will always be down to how they’re sold and the consistency across all shows and brands. But I can’t help think that if someone hit me with a championship belt I’d be more likely to be annoyed than knocked out. Seriously, just throw a punch. Actually, the Regal ‘Power of the punch’ brass knux is something I’d much rather see. Can anyone explain why I should stretch my disbelief a little more to accommodate this more than 20 year old ridiculousness?

 

Hypocrisy is for heels, Randy

Now where I’m from, you actually have to win a match to become champion.”

Words actually spoken by Randy Orton as he stood in the middle of the ring. He was holding the WWE Championship as he said it, as the current champion. It’s his 9th reign for those counting, making him a 13 time champ overall.

But cast your mind to No Mercy 2007. Just under ten years ago, October 7th 2007 to be exact. John Cena, the champ at the time, was injured. So Vince McMahon stood in the middle of the ring and handed Randy Orton the WWE championship. It was his first reign with that particular title. When the PPV started, he had never held it. By the end of the PPV, he was a two time WWE champ. Now whilst I don’t blame Randy, and get what he was saying to Jinder Mahal, hypocrisy is best left for heels. Especially when you’re holding the (current design of the) title you were once yourself literally handed without winning a match. It’s the little things that keep me up the most.

Literally handed the title! Without winning it!

 

There must be a better name

I can’t be the only person kept awake by the commentators insistence on referring to Natalya, Carmella, Tamina and James Ellsworth as the Welcoming Committee. Not only is it never likely to strike fear into the heart of enemies but it also points towards their less than spectacular coming together.

The three women have banded together out of jealousy regarding Charlotte. Let’s not forget, Charlotte is not even the champion of that division. The whole thing is rather petty. But it’s the direction that they’re moving in. I’m not sure how much of a shelf life it can have in a division with such limited numbers but it’s not the new found stable I have a real objection to. It’s really just the name.

Any suggestions for a better name?

I can imagine it all leads to a Natalya title run, and a drawn out chase for a freshly made face Charlotte to finally win the title. That would require the group to stay together for a while. Again, I have no real issue with that, but whilst a throwaway comment like Welcoming Committee worked as a description, it seems to have stuck. That will not work months down the line. Y’know, when it will have worn out its welcome. I just can’t believe the minds of the writers who will have conceived what could be a very enjoyable program, if handled well, could not think of anything better for three 2nd generation women wrestlers. Alternative suggestions are welcome.

 

School seems like forever, but it really does end

Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa have been feuding for what feels like an age. It started with Kendrick offering to mentor the new (at the time) Japanese sensation. For a few weeks it dragged out until Tozawa finally made himself heard and told Kendrick he didn’t want his assistance. Then Kendrick, embarrassed and annoyed, began teaching Tozawa lessons. I think he got up to number ten before Tozawa started teaching Kendrick lessons. Or repeating the same ones, I can’t remember. The whole thing has been very mind numbing.

School is in session, and has been in session for quite some time. They have got their hands on each other numerous times. Multiple tag matches involving both. Plenty of promo time. They are never going to get more heated than they currently are. It has not worked.

Like Strowman vs. Kalisto, this really needs an end.

It’s a shame really. I was looking forward to it at the start. Kendrick is a solid veteran capable of having quality matches still. Tozawa is one of the most charismatic and exciting talents WWE have signed not to have gone through NXT. But for whatever reason, it just hasn’t clicked. It is time to have a final blow off. (I like cage matches to end feuds but that’s just me) The matches have been OK, and one major one could be a good match, but either way, the feud needs to end. School seems to last forever but summer is coming, school is over.

 

And finally….

Orton has never done anything this quickly,

Sami Zayn delivered a backstage rallying speech to Orton and Styles at the speed which I’ve only seen cocaine produce. Kudos to him. But fuck no to the ‘neurotic’  Sami Zayn. Sami is a brilliant underdog that could chase the title over a long course and have it be a huge payoff moment that I’m sure most people would pay a lot to see. Sod it, they could take my money now.

But this will not happen with an intentionally annoying gimmick. On Talking Smack, JBL described him as an ‘over-thinker’. This is something that could work. Sami Zayn chasing the title but his momentary pauses due to over thinking things hindering him, could really aid in the chase. But it will not work if he is made out to be annoying as all hell. Or that even other faces find him to be annoying. Just let Sami be Sami.

    reason for the flat UK audience is cause they are sick of a boring predictable mediocre wwe product. Quiet frankly there is nothing interesting in wwe at the minute. the writing is awful , the fueds are awful , the talent misused. WWE are boring the fans leading to a different type of atmosphere at the live events. change one brand(I would pick smackdown) to this family orientated nonsense and make the other (RAW for me) back to the attitude era ad utilise these guys like ambrose and wyatt etc to make the fans like the product again!! Last Mondays RAW was missing its one redeeming factor Kurt Angle! In summary WWE is BORING rubbish!!!

    I agree with the above statement. Although I would much rather see smackdown change. Smackdown is the stepbrother show compared to Raw, Raw is the flagship.

    The writing thought is horrendously predictable. And everything just seems so rushed. To be honest the superstar shakeup and extension of storylines didn’t help. They should’ve just wrapped the storylines then done the shakeup.

    We need more stables again, they are talent heavy right now and people get buried. You take for example, Balor, Anderson, and Gallows and make Balor club. Then you can have the likes of Seth Rollins, Ambrose, and let’s say a Jeff Hardy go against them.

    The broken Matt Hardy gimmick is coming, he could be a great heel that tears through the mid card.

    Let Bray to a feud with Angle, ala taker and Vince, with a wrestler chosen to be Angles enforcer.

    Samoe joe could have a nice program with reigns,

    Strowman I feel is just too built up, I don’t believe the can lose to anyone, so they need to let him hold the universal title for about 6-8 months and then have someone dethrone him, then he needs to go back to being involved with Bray or some other mid carder.

    Aj styles is money and they need him to always be a focal point on smackdown.

    Sami is being buried if you ask me, he will be the new dolph ziggler.

    We need more tag teams, they need to start building tag teams up. I like where they are going with breeze and fandango, but they cannot bury them after this run.

    Brock Lesner needs to lose, and he need to leave the company with the belt. That belt is complete trash. They ruined it when they had Goldberg take it, not a knock on Goldberg, just a knock on how they did it.
    That belt should just go away and Angle should introduce a new one.

    Stephanie needs to stay off tv, Shane needs to become a heel, or they need to get rid of Daniel Brian.

    So much needs to happen… they are talent heavy, if they would just write more compelling story lines. It’s tiring that it’s all just the same old sh**

Break It Down: Ranking Every Major Wrestling TV Show (Week #3)

Published

Break It Down

As we head towards one of the busiest periods of the calendar year for professional wrestling, the eyes have certainly been on the weekly shows and the quality that they are providing. The third week of the year certainly wasn’t a perfect one overall, but while some shows struggled, others really thrived.

There were some fantastic in-ring matches throughout the week, with a title bout and some good storyline development towards the major shows that are coming up in the future. But which show was the pick of the bunch? Join us as we Break It Down to find out!


6. WWE Raw

For the third week in a row, WWE Raw takes the bottom spot, with the red brand really struggling to build an entertaining three hours. The show has fleeting moments of quality, such as the match between Charlotte Flair and Peyton Royce, which was hard-hitting and back and forth, as did Ricochet and AJ Styles, which is no surprise.

However, the show is just far too inconsistent, with not enough quality throughout the evening to really grip people, even heading into the Royal Rumble. Mace and Xavier Woods had quite a sloppy match, while the six-man tag team match had far too much in-fighting for The Hurt Business for the bout to get going.

Alexa’s Playground didn’t really work with Asuka, and their main event angle didn’t click either. However, the worst segment of the night was the Dirt Sheet, which was mocking Drew McIntyre and Goldberg. Seeing Gillberg was fun, but this didn’t build any interest in the upcoming WWE Championship match and made them both look ridiculous.

5. AEW Dynamite

It was an off night for AEW this week, with this particular episode of AEW Dynamite not quite delivering or feeling particularly ‘must-see.’ There were good elements to this show, with Tazz cutting a great promo and Jon Moxley having arguably the match of the night.

However, there was a lot that just didn’t work. The opening tag team match was chaotic and quite sloppy, and that was a trend throughout the night. AEW often likes to have six-man tags, but a lack of rule-following is something that makes the matches tough to get connected with.

The main event was fun, seeing the Inner Circle’s attempts to prove who is the best being enjoyable, but it wasn’t a blockbuster match. Meanwhile, Cody’s bout with Peter Avalon was just far too long. The Shaq storyline continues to be teased and hasn’t really proven to be interesting to this point, with this show just lacking the normal buzz overall.

4. WWE SmackDown

Roman Reigns

The blue brand was a much better show this week than last, with WWE SmackDown returning to its usual quality. Throughout the show, the work with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman was tremendous, with the opening promo from the Universal Champion silencing any doubters about his microphone skills.

The women’s tag team match was very enjoyable, with The Riott Squad holding their own with the champions until Billie Kay accidentally cost them. Her work is continuing to be great, and hopefully, WWE can continue that, meanwhile the Obstacle course did actually prove to be entertaining.

This was the type of segment that could have been a disaster, but it did a really good job of putting over Bianca Belair, especially when she carried Otis. Plus, seeing Kevin Owens get the best of Roman Reigns for a change was fantastic to see, as that hasn’t really happened since the Tribal Chief returned to WWE.

3. WWE NXT U.K.

WWE NXT U.K. was very enjoyable this week, with WWE’s newest brand continuing to deliver in high-quality in-ring action. Right from the start that standard was set as Rampage Brown and Dave Mastiff had a very hard-hitting bout. There was nothing pretty or technical about it, but instead, it was just a physical brawl, which was tons of fun to watch.

The show developed other storylines nicely as well. Kenny Williams pushing Amir Jordan into a tough match sets up certain possibilities, meanwhile seeing Ilja Dragunov return and showcase a much more physical and aggressive side of himself was tremendous, as he can build on this now.

The main event was given plenty of time and it really benefitted from that. Kay Lee Ray put her NXT U.K. Women’s Championship on the line against Jinny and they had a fantastic match together, going back and forth with Joseph Conners causing issues on the outside, ultimately leading to the finish.

2. WWE NXT

The black and gold brand was very much focused on the in-ring product again this week, which is mainly because of the two tournaments taking place. Kushida and Leon Ruff had a solid match with The Way, while Lucha House Party and Imperium had a really exciting match as well.

Having Lucha House Party set up their match with Legado Del Fantasma was great work, continuing to push the main roster team. Plus, it was great to see the women’s tournament really get built up, and Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter going through was a great surprise.

But it was the main event that really stole the show here, with the Fight Pit returning. This match type is one of the best that WWE has created in years, and Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa certainly didn’t disappoint, with an incredibly physical clash.

1. IMPACT Wrestling

When it comes to the best show of the week, there’s no doubt that IMPACT Wrestling takes the top prize. This show had everything from great in-ring work, surprises, and fantastic backstage segments to create a really entertaining evening of wrestling.

The big tag team segment was great, seeing James Storm return and then the surprise of Matt Hardy and Private Party, proving more doors are open between AEW and IMPACT. This played into the main event, which was a great bout, and with Tony Khan appearing as well, it was certainly noteworthy.

The way Taya Valkyrie finished up her run with IMPACT was fantastic, while the opening match between Eric Young and Rhino, plus the post-match beatdown was very well done as well. The show built the women’s tag team division and continued to push other mid-card talents too, which really provided an entertaining show.

Sixth place= 1 point
Fifth place= 2 points

Third place= 4 points
Second place=5 points
First place= 6 points

Break It Down: Ranking Every Major Wrestling TV Show (Week #2)

Published

on

Break It Down

While it’s still early on in 2021, the wrestling world has set a high standard for in-ring quality so far from last week and all of the shows continued in that mindset here. The shows were all varied and while not everything worked for each show, there were a lot of positives to takeaway.

A week that featured huge title matches, fantastic promos, and even some fireballs being thrown in for good measure has been enough to keep everyone entertained. But, which show was the strongest of the bunch? Let’s Break It Down and find out!


6. WWE Raw

Randy Orton

WWE Raw has been a struggle as of late, and sadly this show didn’t change that run of form for the red brand. It was clear the show had been hurt by COVID-19, with a lot of people missing and a lot pulling double duty on the night, so credit does deserve to be given for that. On that note, praise is deserved for Drew McIntyre too, for making his appearances via video, despite having a positive COVID test.

Sheamus and Keith Lee had a fun match as partners and as opponents on this show, but outside of that this show lacked a lot. Charlotte Flair facing Lacey Evans was nothing special, and using Ric frequently right now isn’t helping her character while having Riddle be beaten so easily feels like a mistake, even if it helps Bobby Lashley overall.

The whole show was built around Triple H returning for a one-off match with Randy Orton, which was all set up nicely. It was never going to be a full match, but it would’ve been nice to have given this a little longer. Obviously, the big talking point was the Alexa Bliss fire, some people loved it, others hated it. I personally, quite enjoy a little magic and ridiculousness when it’s done well, and this story is working so far, with this being a nice finish to the show.

5. WWE SmackDown

Photo Credit: YouTube.com/WWE

WWE SmackDown kickstarted 2021 with a bang last week, but sadly this episode was a slight drop in quality. It was still a good show though, with lots of positives to take, especially in terms of the in-ring product, with Daniel Bryan and Cesaro have a particularly great match on this show.

The work with Billie Kay was a lot of fun, with her ‘punk’ vibes being fantastic comedy, while the storyline with King Corbin and the Mysterio family continues to be put together well. Jey Uso had a really good match with Shinsuke Nakamura too, who appears to be gaining a big push as a babyface, which is great to see.

However, there were elements that didn’t work, with Bayley’s new talk show and segment being a little awkward, while all of the build with Roman Reigns and Adam Pearce was a little dragged out and too repetitive from last week.

4. WWE NXT UK

WWE NXT UK was another really fun show this week, with the brand continuing to put together some great work lately. Seeing the debut of Sha Samuels was great, as he is a real talent in the ring and on the microphone, and he had a nice hard-hitting encounter with Joe Coffey to kick off the show.

Jinny and Kay Lee Ray had a really nice promo segment to build to their title match, and it certainly built interest in their upcoming title match. Plus, Sam Gradwell and Tyler Bate had a really enjoyable match together, with WWE clearly looking to build Bate back up.

However, this show was really all about the main event. WALTER defending his NXT UK Championship didn’t disappoint. He and A-Kid had tremendous chemistry with this being a very hard-hitting encounter that didn’t let up from start to finish, with WALTER retaining, but A-Kid looking just as good in defeat.

3. IMPACT Wrestling

Photo: Impact/Twitter

It was a big week for IMPACT Wrestling with the Hard To Kill event taking place this weekend. While that PPV was a lot of fun, our focus is on the weekly edition of IMPACT, which on the whole was also a great show, building to the PPV in a really nice manner.

The opening women’s match got plenty of time and they didn’t disappoint, while the tag team match featuring Manik and Suicide was also a fast-paced and frantic bout. The storyline development between Eric Young’s group and Rhino and his men wasn’t really needed, with the match itself being incredibly average.

Moose’s squash victory was also dragged on a little too long, and he would’ve benefited from being a little quicker. However, the main event between Karl Anderson and Rich Swann was solid, and the post-match brawl built up the six-man tag team match for Hard To Kill perfectly, which is what was needed.

2. WWE NXT

Yet again the black and gold brand was very enjoyable this week. The show featured a lot of brilliant in-ring work, with a large focus being placed on tag team wrestling, with the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic beginning, which brought plenty of fun bouts.

Grizzled Young Veterans showcased just how good they are, although, booking Ever-Rise as a babyface team here was odd, while MSK’s debut was very fun to see, with the former IMPACT stars seriously impressing. Candice LeRae and Shotzi Blackheart had a good bout as well, while Xia Li’s character development continues to be done brilliantly.

Johnny Gargano’s match with Dexter Lumis was the only real disappointment of the show, as this didn’t quite connect. However, the work with Pete Dunne throughout the show was excellent, building him and his group up as a real threat, with Dunne facing Finn Balor being something that everyone should be excited for.

1. AEW Dynamite

 

AEW Dynamite was incredibly exciting this week, with a lot of really good matches taking place. The show benefited from not having and big multi-man matches, with everything being crisp and to the point. PAC and Eddie Kingston had an excellent opening match which set the pace for the entire show, with this story being a lot of fun.

This show also saw the best piece of booking that Miro has had since he joined AEW. He was dominant and physical, and hopefully, this is how he’s used moving forwards. The Matt Hardy and Private Party backstage segment will likely be overlooked by most, but it was really good storytelling here as well.

Kenny Omega choosing The Good Brothers over the ‘Bucks is a nice twist, and FTR also had a fantastic tag team bout with Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt. The Waiting Room segment was fun and really shows Britt Baker at her best, meanwhile, Tay Conti and Serena Deeb had a fantastic match. The main event also delivered, like everything on this brilliant show, but the only nitpick I had was Sting’s appearance. Doing the same thing with him every week is already feeling stale, he is someone who should be used less frequently to make him feel more special, in my opinion.

Sixth place= 1 point
Fifth place= 2 points
Fourth place= 3 points
Third place= 4 points
Second place=5 points
First place= 6 points

2020 results (each week, the points tally will be added up below):

WWE Raw- 2

Tonight is WWE Raw Legends Night, and plenty of familiar faces will be coming back to the company, but how should WWE use them? It’s going to be a blockbuster episode of WWE Raw to kickstart 2021 in style, and there will be a real element of nostalgia about the show, with a lot of legends being confirmed for the event.

While not every legend is going to have a significant role to play on the show, some of the talents are going to have a very big part to play in things. WWE has heavily pushed the legends aspect of the show, so there’s no doubt going to be some involvement. But what are the best, and most logical ways the talents could be used?
