For the second week in a row, WWE NXT will be headlined by a ladder match with major WarGames implications literally hanging in the balance.

Ahead of their four-on-four double cage match this Sunday at NXT Takeover: WarGames, team captain Shotzi Blackheart will face off against the opposition’s Raquel Gonzalez. The winner will earn their team the numbers advantage in the match.

This stipulation didn’t exactly come out of nowhere. Last Wednesday night’s show was also headlined by a ladder match – one that saw the “Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne defeat Kyle O’Reilly to earn Team McAfee the advantage in the men’s WarGames match at Takeover.

Shotzi Blackheart’s team so far consists of the recently returned Ember Moon and the Australian badass Rhea Ripley, as well as one more Superstar to be named later this week. They’ll step into the side-by-side double ring against Candice LeRae, her protege Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.

Join us for live coverage of WWE NXT every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM ET and make sure to join us this Sunday for exclusive live coverage of NXT Takeover: WarGames.

X-Division Title Match, Knockouts Tournament Set For Tonight’s IMPACT Wrestling

Published

on

Four matches have been announced for tonight’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling.

The first round of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament will continue as one of women’s wrestling’s greatest legends, Jazz, returns to the ring in what could be her final performance. Jazz is looking to end her legendary career in IMPACT after announcing her retirement earlier this year. She teams with Jordynne Grace to battle outsiders Killer Kelly and Renee Michelle, who have a big opportunity to impress IMPACT management.

After a minor injury took Alex Shelley out of action for the past few weeks, the Motor City Machine Guns return to the ring tonight to face off against the heavyweight hosses who – in story – injured Shelly in the first place: Larry D and Acey Romero of Team XXXL.

The self-proclaimed “Desi Hitman” Rohit Raju will also defend the X-Division Championship against Crazzy Steve on IMPACT this week. Steve scored a win over the champ last week while disguised as Suicide, thanks to a bit of outside distraction from TJP. The leader of the “Finesse Division” Chris Bey will also go one-on-one with Willie Mack.

IMPACT Wrestling airs every Tuesday night at 8:00 PM ET on AXS TV but for those without access to the channel, the show streams simultaneously on Twitch for free.

Raw Rambling (11/30): #1 Contender’s Match, The Viper Smells A Weakness & Lana Triumphs

Published

on

Last week saw a quick break from the Raw Rambling article as I was off live coverage, but we are back in full force this week and it was a strong episode to return too! From start to finish, the red brand did a good job of creating meaningful segments and matches that developed characters and drove stories forwards.

As ever, it wasn’t perfect, but that is to be expected with a three-hour episode of WWE Raw. But’s let’s jump into the episode and take a look at what worked, and what didn’t.

The Money in the Bank concept has had quite a poor year overall. Asuka just being given the title from winning and then the mess that was Otis’ run with the briefcase has certainly dampened things for the concept. But The Miz holding the briefcase has potential, and this week did a great job of building that.

There were multiple segments throughout the night that focused on the briefcase, and that was great. The Miz TV segment had a purpose, it pushed the briefcase and Miz’s desire to cash it in, but knowing he can’t take out Drew on his own also makes the champion look great.

Meanwhile, it also pushed the connection that Sheamus and Drew have, with this slow-burning storyline being a lot of fun to see.

But it was the main event segment that really worked well. Once again, Sheamus and Drew’s friendship was crucial, as it should be as WWE is clearly planting seeds for something here. But having AJ Styles legitimately try to help Miz cash-in just made perfect sense.

He knows Miz is easier to beat than Drew, and on paper, that was something that everyone understood and could connect with. The tease of the cash-in continues to be well booked, with that eventual moment sure to have a big pay-off.
