Daniel Bryan vs Big E vs Samoa Joe vs The Miz vs Rusev (SmackDown 06/19)

Today, 08:15 PM

Gauntlet match to decide who is going to be the #1 Contender to the WWE Title.

 

My goodness. This match was unbelievable. Daniel Bryan might be, as of June of 2018, the best wrestler on the planet.

 

This completely overshadowed the also incredible RAW gauntlet match this year, and much of that had to do with two things:

 

  1. It felt more cohesive - many have a hard time considering a gauntlet match like a single unit, instead being seen as many smaller matches, but in this case it more than earned the right to be looked at as a whole. It had an overarching story to all the segments and it keep its quality at a constant.
  2. Daniel Bryan is the greatest of all time (sort of). He just went all in and made not only Big E look like a bazillion buckes, with lots of crazy exchanges, but also Joe never looked as good in WWE as he did in this match - Bryan takes a beating like no one else (being dropped on his head and nearly dying helps in a more morbid way) and his comebacks feel so fucking natural. The finish to the segment vs Joe and to the Miz segment were so smartly worked that sometimes you gotta give it to WWE and say they can do stuff perfectly.

 

Those two main points, coupled with strong performances from The Miz and a ridiculously over Rusev - and a new feud appearing on the horizon - made for one of the best TV matches of the year, and a strong contender for best of the decade.

Real talk, England's national squad sucks ass. Getting played by Tunisia and winning on Fergie time, fuck that. Belgium, beat them rookies of Panama (who beat the USA lolol)

 

On a more serious note, let's hope they wrap this AJ/Nak feud up and start inserting Miz and DB onto the title scene. 


Nia Jax vs Ronda Rousey (WWE MitB 2018)

17 June 2018 - 09:39 PM

This match was absolute perfection. Not only Nia really stepped up her game, looking like the monster she should always play right from the get-go, but Ronda... is bordering on Volk Han levels of incredible.

 

The bumping, the facial expressions, the comebacks. She is just perfect and does little things that many other more experienced people don't do. This was almost 10 minutes long and it was a complete blast.

 

Bliss interferes in the match, cashing in the MitB contract. While it does keep both Nia and Rousey looking like two incredibly strong wrestlers and it does keep the mistery intact (Nia didn't tap to RR and Rousey wasn't beaten), Alexa being the focus of the Women's Division almost as much as Charlotte (who also was pushed way too strong) is... iffy.

 

With that said, fucking masterpiece. Not even Coach's all time bad commentary hurts this.


WWE Money in the Bank

Brazil tied 1-1 with Switzerland after some VR bullshit and poor refereeing. However, our squad was really fucking lenient, like the heel after getting the 1st pin in a 2/3 falls match.

 

Also, the card (thanks, C.S)

Velveteen Dream vs Ricochet (NXT Takeover Chicago II)

16 June 2018 - 09:39 PM

My dude Dream gets pro wrestling like no one. From straight up wearing Prince Puma tights to having a Hulk Hogan-based entrance, he is absurdly over, to the point where he outshines RICOCHET.

 

Loved the reference to Rock/Hogan, too. 

 

The match itself was tons of fun, with Dream using some of Ricochet's spots early on, and getting overly confident. Ricochet showed that he can absolutely be an incredible all-around performer, as opposed to the shit he was doing with Ospreay a while ago.

 

 

Reminder: Velveteen Dream is only 22.
