In Topic: Nia Jax vs Ronda Rousey (WWE MitB 2018)

Yesterday, 05:12 AM

Much better than it had any right to be. Ronda is still going to be a bit green, and Jax is going to be well... a bit shit. Ronda looks to be in her element and Jax works her arse off to make this work. No time is wasted as Jax rushes Rousey. Jax looks like a total monster and it's her best performance to date. Ronda actively trying to escape Jax's bearhug was one of those touches that makes this make next-tier level brilliant. Rousey intensely hulksup and laid a gruesome knee to the face of Jax. The screwy finish leaves room for another Rousey/Jax match and a Bliss/Rousey match that could headline a major PPV.

 

★★★★½


In Topic: Big Cass vs. Daniel Bryan (WWE Money In The Bank 06/17/18)

Yesterday, 04:08 AM

Leaps and bounds above their last PPV match. One of the best things about wrestling is watching a sublime talent get something brilliant out of an opponent who's usually useless. Cena did it with Khali, Okada did it with Fale and now Bryan's done it with Cass. The hot Chicago crowd and the positioning of this match on the card certainly helped things too. Bryan bumped the hell out of for Cass's dull offense. He also has incorporated more mat wrestling into his arsenal, closing down his larger opponent by targeting the legs. Cass still doesn't know how to show much character. His dumb rat-like facials do nothing for me, but it doesn't matter all that much because this was the Daniel Bryan show.

In Topic: WWE Super Show-Down

If you told me after watching their match at Wrestlemania 28, that Triple H & Undertaker will be having their rematch over six years later, I'd have you sectioned.

 

This is going to be awful yet I'm intrigued.


In Topic: Johnny Gargano vs. Tomasso Ciampa (Street Fight - NXT Takeover: Chicago 6/16/18)

17 June 2018 - 01:29 PM

All the brilliance of their first encounter, but without the bloated moments. With Ciampa taking apart the ring mat, officials rushing the ring in an attempt to stop an active match and long-term booking, this hellish fight had many things we rarely ever see in the WWE.

 

Ciampa walking Gargano up the aisle in a similar way to how he did at the last Takeover in Chicago was a genius bit of pro-wrestling story-telling. The removing of the wedding ring was just the cherry on top.

 

MOTY. Not even Omega/Okada can top this.

In Topic: Velveteen Dream vs Ricochet (NXT Takeover Chicago II)

17 June 2018 - 10:02 AM

Everything Dream does is dripping with character and charisma. Even the way he leaps over the ring when he's doing a plancha has distinct feel to it. This was his coming out party. He's got a great persona, but he can he bring it in the ring? This had great storytelling, and Dream trash talking when Ricochet was recovering helped the story garner traction.

 

This did have a slow beginning. Things really started to pick up after they did the superlex on the outside.
