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

19 June 2018 - 10:18 PM

Awesome match with Bryan and Big E giving us a hot, fast paced start with some great moments. Gotta love how Bryan having three fully viable finishes means he has so many ways to work towards the finish of a match, here being him getting a sudden win with the Running Knee. With Joe coming in to brutalize Bryan made for a good next step in the story and with a clever little twist to end the match in order to protect both guys. Bludgeon Brothers vs. Bryan has no interest from me but whatever I guess. Miz coming in for the quick win on Bryan is absolute brilliance and only stoking the fires for the inevitable clash. The Miz vs. Rusev was actually much better than expected with Miz showing off why he's really one of the best heels of our generation both in and out of the ring. 

 

Great TV match that built upon itself to make for a hot streak of action. Wouldn't quite put it over the RAW gauntlet earlier this year as that had higher highs but the compact, concise nature of this mixed with everyone playing their roles to perfection made for wonderful television.

Ibushi to the final ? Please ?

 

It's looking like an Okada-Ibushi final to me.


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

It's insane to think that Ronda is THIS good on only her second pay-per-view outing. This was a world class performance not just for someone transitioning from a different sport but from any professional wrestler. That lady is clearly putting the work in. I mean, just look at the the bumps she was willing to take for Nia. That's insane.

 

Nia really brought the heat and offense on this too, really upping the pace to make the limited time they had feel as action packed as possible. Also, while Coach gave one of the worst commentary moments of his life, Ronda put on a brilliant sell job of a bear hug. She was ACTIVELY trying to escape the hold even as she sold its effects. Just brilliant.

In Topic: The Undisputed Era vs. Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan (WWE NXT Takeover: Chica...

Oney Lorcan kills himself for our entertainment. I loved this, it gave me Revival-DIY vibes especially with that Adam Cole false finish. The faces felt robbed and put in such an amazing performance that even the horrible Chicago crowd gave them their props once the final bell rang.

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

17 June 2018 - 12:00 AM

A little slow going for me with Dream not quite bringing the heat on the offense and thus not really allowing Ricochet to get those nice bursts of action in that we love. But once this got going, oh boy, did it get going. A boiling hot finishing stretch and a really great showcase for Ricochet to show some more dimensions to his work than just the high flying. Really great stuff and even more impressive given the insanity these two had to follow.
