Smackdown Tag Team Championship – Hell in a Cell Match
The New Day (c) vs The Usos:
Really surprised this is the kickoff match. Both teams immediately go for weapons conveniently stored under the ring. There are kendo sticks chains and all kinds of other weapons available and all 4 men are legal. Xavier Woods and Big E are in for TND tonight. Kofi is locked outside the cage. This match is crazy. Jimmy Uso nails Woods against the side of the cage. Crowd chants “THIS IS AWESOME” and there is no way I can keep up with the insanity. Woods uses trombones as weapons against Jay Uso, then Big E pulls out a cowbell… cause we always need more cowbell, and Woods hits Jay with the bell. Big E now has a Cymbal. and Woods uses it to hit Jay with as well making a lovely ringing sound. As fast the TND took over they get cut off by the Uso’s now armed with Kendo sticks. They begin to beat the crap out of Big E with the kendo sticks. Jimmy pins Woods against the side of the cage with a kendo stick and Jay comes in with a dropkick to the face… The Uso’s are 2 on 1 on Big E, but Big E takes Jay out right away but Jimmy cuts him off. Big E manages to take both of the Uso’s out by slamming one into the other. Big E rolls Jimmy into the ring, for a double team with Woods, Jay manages to cut it off. More kendo sticks! Is this the Sandman’s secret stash? TND uses the kendo sticks to lock Jay Uso in the corner… hahahaha WTF… Now they are teaming up on Jimmy. Jay Uso somehow escapes, takes out Woods, Jimmy picks up steam and takes out Big E, Jay picks E up and they double team him into the cage, the crowd is chanting “Holy Shit” poor Big E… ouch… Usos have dragged Big E Usos both get a Splash from the top on Big E but he kicks out on 2… The Usos now have handcuffs… with long chains in between them. they handcuff Big E to a corner, and Jimmy tries to lock Woods up to the other corner. Woods is getting beat with the kendo stick while handcuffed to the ring post. well technically his hands are over the post, so he can get free if he flips his arms right… which he does… Big E has broken his handcuffs and makes easy work of the Usos. He goes bonkers and starts beating both of the Uso’s up, he tosses Jay in the ring, hits his finisher, but Jay kicks out on 2. Big E puts Jay in a submission but Jimmy superkicks him, Usos now both super kick Big E, they hit their finisher but Woods breaks it up at the last second. Uso’s get back up first… and start beating Woods with the kendo sticks again. He is still handcuffed BTW… He tries to fight back, but they continue to assault him. Now they have a chair… its put on top of Woods and the Uso’s do their double team move to become the 5-time Smackdown Tag Team Champions!!!!

Rusev vs Randy Orton:
The match starts off with the two men testing each other. Rusev takes control and shoulders Orton into the corner. Rusev took too much time heeling the crowd, and Orton recovers and stomps him. Orton goes for his finisher but Rusev sends him over the top and into the barricade. Rusev gets a 2 count on Orton. Rusev continues to stomp Orton after he kicks out then gives him a few good forearms.  Rusev puts Orton in a headlock in hopes of chocking him out, but Orton fights back to his feet and headbutts Rusev. Rusev cuts him off and gets another 2 count on Orton. Both men are outside the ring, Orton sends Rusev into the barricade, then gets kicked in the face. Rusev throws Orton back in the ring for a 2 count. Rusev looks blown up. He drops an elbow on Orton. then kicks him a few times. Rusev sends Orton to the corner, but Orton moves out of the way, they each take a moment to breathe then come back to fight hand to hand, Orton looks like he has a hold on it but Rusev outsmarts him, counters, Orton counters and Powerslams Rusev for the 2 count. Rusev gets a fallaway slam on Orton, gets another 2 count. Rusev stomps Orton goes for a submission, Orton escapes to the outside. Rusev follows and kicks Orton in the face. Rusev tosses Orton back in the ring, and goes up the second rope, goes for a splash and misses. Orton hits a DDT ton Rusev, then gets pumped up by the crowd… Rusev gets up tries to fight back, Orton hits him with the RKO to pick up the win.

United States Championship Match: Triple Threat
AJ Styles (c) vs Baron Corbin vs Tye Dillinger 
Dillinger being added only increases the chances of Corbin winning in my opinion. Styles and Dillinger go to team up on Corbin and he rolls out… they chase him out, he jumps back in and the two men beat up on Corbin, then toss him out and Dillinger then turns on Styles. Back and forth between them until Styles cuts Dillinger off with a dropkick, then Corbin drags Styles out of the ring, goes to take over on Dillinger more back and forth and Dillinger ends up out, and Styles rolls back in. I can’t type as fast as this match is happening… lol  Every time Dillinger pops back up, Corbin sends him flying back down then continues his assault on Styles. All men are back in the ring, and Corbin is just destroying Styles and Dillinger. Corbin beats on Dillinger, Styles finally gets back up, and then he gets sent flying by Corbin. Corbin goes after Styles on the outside, Styles reverses gets a few hits in before being thrown into the barricade by Corbin. Corbins back in the ring with Dillinger, Dillinger is back up but its doesn’t seem like it will last long… Corbin puts Dillinger into a submission, Dillinger tries to fight p Corbin lets go because Styles is back on his feet. again not for long… Corbin continues to beat on Dillinger after taking Styles out again. Corbin gets a 2 count on Dillinger… Styles gets back in the ring… starts to fight back with Corbin, throwing punches backing him up against the ropes. Styles continues to fight hard back against Corin until he takes him down. Styles tries for his finisher but Corbin cuts him off. He hits Corbin with a forearm, Styles gets dumped onto the apron by Coring, but then pulls Corbin over the top dumping him to the outside. We have Styles vs Dillinger, but Dillinger quickly takes control. Dillinger has AJ on the top rope, and AJ escapes, and counters sending Dillinger hits styles gets a 2 count. Dillinger exposes his knee Styles gets some finisher attempts, gets Dillinger in an ankle lock but Corbin drags Dillinger to the ropes to break the submission, Styles jumps off the top splashing both men. All 3 men are down… Corbin tosses Dillinger in, some back and forth Styles is up, Corbin gives Styles a chokeslam neck-breaker from hell and Styles kicks out on 2. All 3 men continue to battle it out faster than I can type…. Dillinger picks Styles up, but Styles evades him, then Corbin who follows. Styles hits a top rope 450 on Corbin, but Dillinger breaks the pin on 2. Styles hits Dillinger with a giant forearm off the top, goes for the pin, Corbin pulls him off, covers Dillinger and is your new United States Champion.

Smackdown Women’s Championship:
Natalya Neidhart (c) vs Charlotte Flair 
Both ladies have dope new outfits on. It’s nice to see this two wrestle, so sorry if there isn’t as much play by play. Natalya has been on 40 PPVs now, more than any other woman in the history of WWE. That’s pretty awesome. This match has a lot of back and forth and mocking by Charlotte. Natalya and Charlotte have had a lot of back and forth and are currently trying to outwrestle each other on the ground. Natalya has worn Charlotte down and bit and continues to take advantage of that. Charlotte is fighting but Nattie holds her in a leg lock. Charlotte reverses and gets Natalya into an ankle lock, but she escapes and goes right back after Charlotte. Every time Charlotte gets back to her feet Natalya knocks her down. More back and forth, Charlotte gets a 2 count on Nattie with a backslide, then gives her a bunch of chops, than a knee drop. Charlotte’s knee is hurt, but she continues to fight back and gets a suplex on Natalya. Natalya exploits the knee then gives Charlotte a powerbomb and gets a 2 count. One more cover… kick out… another cover, then kick out. Natti looks pissed. Charlotte tries to pin Natalya but kicks out on 1. Natalya starts stomping on Charlotte, Charlotte cuts her off, but Charlotte’s knee gives out, Charlotte limps to her feet and is sent out of the ring by Natalya, who hits her with a baseball slide into the steel stairs. Nattie gets Charlotte back in the ring, and puts her in the sharpshooter in the center of the ring, Charlotte manages to flip Nattie out of the hold, and into the bottom turnbuckle. Nattie is down, Charlotte goes to the top, Nattie rolls out, and Charlotte kicks her. Charlotte goes to the top and does a moonsault onto Natalya on the outside. Natalya is down, Charlotte’s knee is injured. Natalya retains by count out, then assaults Charlotte with a steel chair.

Breezango segment… they get a delivery…. and its a poster of the Ascension. From the Ascension who they didn’t recognize in street clothes. They send them away and a briefcase is left at the door… Breezango opens it and a golden light shines out… it’s not just a briefcase… its a new case.

WWE Championship Match
Jinder Mahal (c) vs Shinsuke Nakamura
I am really annoyed this match isn’t in a cell… With the Singh brothers at ringside, how is it not? Mahal and Nakamura have some solid back and forth and Mahal is not happy with Nakamura’s antics, or his face paced moves. Mahal powders out of the ring… Again I am more focused on watching this match than play by play. Mahal tries a submission on Nakamura, but he works out of it. Mahal then tries an armbar on Nakamura, but he works out of it again. Nakamura gets tossed hard into the corner, Mahal gives him a huge knee to the face, then puts him back in the armbar.  Nakamura works his way up again, and both men fight back until they both end up on the ground. Nakamura hits Mahal with a Flying boot then a few kicks to the chest. Nakamura gets a 2 count pin cover… Mahal cuts him off, but ends up getting dumped over the top and Nakamura baseball slides into him bit then the Singh Brother get involved, he takes them out and goes back after Mahal. Nakamura hurts his knee, gets suplexed back into the ring by Mahal for a 2 count. Mahal stand over Nakamura like a tiger about to pounce, Mahal grabs him, but Nakamura is able to roll him into a small package for 1 count, Nakamura gets to the top, boot to the face of Mahal from the top. Singh Brothers interfering again, but Nakamura uses Mahal as a weapon against them this time, the Singhs keep interfering and are banned from ringside by the ref, Nakamura hits his finisher but Mahal grabs the bottom rope to break the pinfall. Mahal powders, Nakamura chases him throws him back in the ring and gets bumped, counters, throws Mahal Mahal hits his finisher and gets the 3 count on Nakamura to retain the WWE Championship. Boooooo

Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler:
This match starts out with classic chain wrestling as you would expect. Totally digging this matchup. These guys are fairly well matched and both wrestle really well, but it seems Roode is beginning to take control. Ziggler underestimates Roode I think. Ziggler gets a 2 count roll up on Roode but Roode kicks out. Ziggler has now reported to heel tactics rubbing Roode’s face down the ropes then hitting him with a neck breaker for a 2 count. Ziggler grabs Roode in a wristlock submission, but Roode fights out, Ziggler cuts him off and gets him into a sleeper hold. Roode seems to be fading out… Roode is trying to escape, Rode gets back up to sitting and begins to fight Ziggler off, getting him up and over in a side suplex. Both men get back to their feet, Ziggler ends up shoulder first into the ring post. Roode punches Ziggler, Ziggler reverses, Roode reverses, hits a move from the top for a 2 count. Roode hits another hard slam on Ziggler for the 2 count. Ziggler hits Roode with a DDT for a two count. Both men go for finishers and are blocked, Ziggler grabs Roode back into the sleeper hold, Roode fights back but gets another DDT by Ziggler for another 2 count pin. Both men are down. Ziggler gets up first, starts stomping to “tun up the band, but Roode cuts him off with a spine buster. Roode goes for Glorious, Ziggler rolls him up with the tights,  then roll up off, and Roode wins by pinfall roll up with the tights.

Hell in a Cell Match
Kevin Owens vs Shane Mcmahon:
This starts before these two can even get in the ring. Shane and Kevin just continue to brawl at the end of the ramp, until Owens gets in the cage and holds the door shut, but Shane kicks the door into his face. They are in! Owens knocks Shane into the cage right off the bat, and Shane fights back from the ground, Owens picks him up and grinds his face into the cage in front of his children, who seem to be… laughing at him? Owens steps on Shanes face a bit and dumps the steel steps on him. Shane tries crawling away but Owens chases him to kick him in the ribs. Shane gets up, kicks Owens, and then punches him a few times, Owens gets back in the ring, Shane follows and gets stomped. Owens just keeps punching Shane, and Shane tries to work back up but Owens keeps him down. Owens hits a standing senton for a 2 count. Owens has Shane in the corner, but Shane is trying to fight back, Big knee to Shanes’ face, then a cannonball by Owen, cover and a kick out. Owens is talking shit to Shanes kids, and they continue to laugh. Owens goes to the top and misses the Senton, as Shane got his knees up, but Shane got his knee hurt when Owens landed on him. Both men are back up, Shane starts punching Owens into the corner, and hits him with a flying elbow. Shanes fired up gets Owens worked into a corner, then pulls him out and hits him with a big DDT (overused tonight BTW) Shane goes to the top shooting star press, but nobodies home. Owens then goes to the top hits Shane with a big splash but Shane kicks out. Shane runs in grabs Owens in an armbar, trying to get him into the triangle, but Owens is fighting him trying to fully apply it. Owens pulls Shane out of the ring and Power Bombs him onto the ring stairs. Owens gets back up stomps Shane a bit, Shanes complaining about his back, the crowd is chanting “get the tables” Owens get’s the table… Owens sets the table up against the side of the cage, and sets Shane up on the table, then runs off the apron and jumps, but Shane rolls out of the way and Owens takes out the table and himself. Shane gets a 2 count at ringside on Owens. Falls count anywhere… Shane is now beating Owens with a broken chunk of the table. He pulls a trash can out from under the ring, throws it into the ring, hits Owens with the table chunk again, then throws Owens in the ring as well. Shane grabs the can, sets it up on Owens and goes to the top rope, and hits the dropkick to the trashcan flattening Owens. Shane pins Owens, somehow Owens gets a foot on the ropes. Shane is telling the ref to open the cell. The ref says no, Shane gets bolt cutters and struggles to cut the lock… He breaks the lock and opens the cell. He then returns to the ring and hits Owens with the trash can. Shane is chasing Owens up the ramp, Shane ends up face first into the metal on the walkway, Owens works to his feet, and picks up Shane to run him nuts first into the cage door… Owens then runs Shanes face down the cage and continues to beat on him, then begins to tear the announce table apart, tossing the parts at Shane. Owens sets Shane up on the table and first climbs the barricade to jump onto Shane, but then decides to climb the cage instead.
Owens is 20′ in the air on top of the “cell” Owens acts as if he has reservations about jumping off the cage, Shane gets up and follows Owens to the top of the cage. Owens punches Shane as he hangs off the side of the cell, but Shane fights his way to the top, Shane and Owens unleash on each other on top of the cell. They take each other down, the roof bends… Shane hits a bodyslam on Owens, then almost falls off the cell. The crowd is chanting “THIS IS AWESOME”. They continue to fight, Shane gives Owens a big suplex, the cage top is getting weaker and weaker… These men continue to fight… Everyone is waiting for them to fall through. I think I can see the gimmicked panel it’s to the left of center on the main camera… Owens gives Shane a huge Powerbomb the cage holds. Owens goes to shitcan Shane off the cell, Shane reverses, they continue to fight, Owens then begins to climb down, but Shane starts to choke him. Shane chases Owens down the cage. They are now fighting on the side of the cage, halfway up, and Owens falls off into the announce table, Shane clings to the cage like spiderman… EMTs checking on Owens, Shane descends from the cage. Shane makes the EMTs move so he can pin Owens, but instead, he drags Owens back to take apart the other announce table. Shane sets up Owens on the announce table, then climbs to the top of the cage. Shane is on top of the cell, He crosses himself, drops an elbow, and Owens gets pulled out of the way by Sami Zayn, Shane annihilates the table and the EMT’s call for the backboard. Shanes looking potentially damaged. EMT’s are trying to check on Shane, Sami moves them, drags Owens over to cover Shane. Kevin Owens is your winner. WTF?

Overall this special event wasn’t too bad. I really enjoyed a few of the matches, and am looking forward to watching Smackdown on Tuesday! Thanks for checking out my review and results, and check out my other writing here!

Hell in a Cell 2017 Predictions

Hell in a Cell is back! Tonight they are live from the Little Ceasars Arena in Detroit Michigan! At 8 PM EST / 5 PM PST! Betting odds are already out, and the lines are open until bell time on each match! Click here to check out the odds, and place your bets!

Here is the lineup and my thoughts:

Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Hype Bros (Kickoff Match) – I am always happy to see Shelton Benjamin. I think this match is going to be a lot of fun to watch. I have a feeling the Hype Bros are going to take this one.

The Fashion Files will return at WWE Hell on a Cell – This is one of the best promo sequences they have done in years. I absolutely love this nonsense.

 

Randy Orton vs. Rusev – I am still sad that they have Lana and Rusev split up. This match has some potential to either be awesome or boring as fuck. I am hoping for the former. Orton will be victorious.

Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler – One of the matches on the card I am looking forward to. Loved the setup on Smackdown Live this week. These guys are going to put on one hell of a match. It’s hard for me to pick a winner on this one. If its pure wrestling ability I have to go with Roode, but knowing how diabolical Ziggler can be its kind of a toss-up. I will stick with Roode on this one.

United States Champion AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin – Fun fact… my friend is doing cosplay dressed as AJ Styles right now at NYCC. She looks fabulous too. She even got the soccer mom hair to complete the look! I am looking forward to this match as well. Corbin moves incredibly well for a man of his size, AJ has a lot to contend with if he wants to hold onto the US title. I think we may see the title switch hands tonight with Baron Corbin walking away as the new US Champion.

 

SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair – This is going to be awesome. I love both these ladies but as always I am rooting for Natalya!

 

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura – Why isn’t this in a cage??? If anything this match NEEDS a cage to keep those bastards the Singh Brothers, out of the match. I was infuriated at the end of Summerslam. Since it’s not in a cage, Mahal may retain the Championship… my heart is still with Nakamura.

 

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. The Usos (Hell in a Cell Match) – The Uso’s seem determined to get the titles back around their waists. The New Day have already proven to be formidable opponents.  We may see a title change, and I say that just due to the sheer ferocity of The Uso’s this week.

 

Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens (Hell in a Cell Falls Count Anywhere Match) – Who will fall off the cage? Who will be put on the injured list for the next 6 months until Wrestlemania? Why would Shane winning this match matter at all? I guess you have to watch tonight to find out! I think Shane is going to take the win tonight.

As per my usual, I am writing LIVE results for tonights PPV and will be posting them live as the matches end. You can place bets on the matches until the bell of each match! Check out the updated lines here!

Read what my predictions were for the winners here!

Kick Off Show:

Elias Sampson vs Apollo Crews – Elias sang a wonderful song about Los Angeles, I couldn’t agree more. This match starts slow, back and forth simple chaining but these guys look great. Titus O’Neill is at ringside for Crews. Crews hit an awesome dropkick that almost took off Sampson’s head. This match is simple, but really a decent opener. Both these guys belong on the main card on a more regular basis. Elias Sampson is victorious after hitting his finisher and rolling Crews into a small package for the 3 count.

Main Show:

Intercontinental Championship Match
The Miz(c) vs Jason Jordan – Starts with a lockup. I hate Jason Jordans gear, he looks like a cheap indy wrestler who got gear off the clearance rack. Jordan pulls off a sweet straight Suplex on the Miz. His suplex game is strong. Hell, they look way better than Lesnars. The Miztourage is getting involved… The word Miztourage just broke my spellcheck. The match is back in the ring, Miz is in control, hit a sweet DDT for the 2 count. Crowd chants “whos your daddy” lol Match is back outside the ring, Miz was thrown into the barricade, both men down, Jordan climbs to the top does a clothesline to the outside on Miz, pulls him into the ring for a 2 count. Miz kicks Jordan in the chest, Jordan slightly recovers and suplexes Miz out of his way… Both men are down, and work their way back up, Jordan fires up, corners Miz, then gets him down for the 2 count. Jordan gets Miz in the small package for 2 count, Jordan does 2 northern lights suplexes in a row on Miz for another 2 count. Jordan gets The Miz in a cross face in the middle of the ring, but Miz gets to the ropes to force the break. Miz sends Jordan into the turnbuckle. Both men are down, working to their feet again. The crowd is digging it. Miz launches himself at Jordan but gets caught in a Belly to Belly Suplex. Miztourage interferes, and the Miz retains his title.

Bray Wyatt vs Finn Balor – Wyatt attacks Balor before the match even begins, and takes it to the outside, slamming him off barricades and the announce table, then chokes him for good measure. Poor Balor. Wyatt leaves Balor crumbled at ringside, and poses in the ring, Balor is surrounded be 4 ref’s getting checked out. Balor is looking pretty hurt, and Wyatt is bowing in the ring then cuts a promo about what he just did to Balor. Wyatt calls him a coward and tells him to run away. He says he isn’t a man, but a god. Wyatt calls Balor a coward again, and Balor rips his jacket off and heads back to the ring. The match begins, too fast to even write about, lots of back and forth and Balor had control for a minute, but Wyatt takes over and superplexes him off the top rope. Wyatt just continues to lay into Balor and talk shit. Balor doesn’t get more than a few hits in before Wyatt takes over again. Cravat by Wyatt! Balor finally gets some steam back but it’s clear his ribs are hurt. Balor traps Wyatt in the ring apron… Hell yeah! Wyatt gets out Balor kicks him in the face, then bounces his head off the announce table. Balor is up top, Wyatt is upside down like a weirdo… Balor jumps off Dodges Wyatt, gets him in the comeback, Wyatt cuts him off, standing senton, 2 count on Balor. Both men back to their feet, exchanging blows, Wyatt goes for Sister Abigail but gets cut off, Balog gets a 2 count on Wyatt. Balor has Wyatt in the bottom corner, double boots, Balor goes to the top but Wyatt goes for him and cuts him off, Balor fights back throws Wyatt down, and its the double stomp on the back of Wyatt’s neck for another 2 count. More back and forth Wyatt gets a 2 count on Balor after a clothesline that almost beheaded Balor. Wyatt tosses Balor across the ring, in a suplex-like move. He does it a second time. Wyatt goes to the second rope but Balor kicks him in the head and climbs up the ropes gets knocked down by Wyatt but comes back with a couple dropkicks to Wyatt’s chest. Balor lands his finish on Wyatt, and picks up the win! YEEEEEESSSS!

Raw Tag Team Championship Match
Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose(c) vs Cesaro and Sheamus- The match starts and Ambrose seems to be running around attacking Cesaro and Sheamus. They take over and hand Ambrose some abuse. They are keeping him away from Rollins and taking turns beating on him. Ref is checking on Ambrose, allows him to get to his feet before restarting the match, and Cesaro just runs in and kicks Ambrose in the face. Ambrose is trying to tag out, but Cesaro tags in Sheamus before he can, and they double team, Ambrose. Sheamus continues the assault on Ambrose. Sheamus tags Cesaro back in, gets a pin on Ambrose, kick out at 2. Ambrose finally manages to take over and send Cesaro into the post, tags Rollins in who goes after Sheamus first then the legal man, Cesaro. Cesaro is busted open bad from his trip into the ring post by Ambrose.  Holy fuck Cesaro lost his front teeth, OMG!! So distracted now. OUCH man! I don’t even know where I was… Holy hell. Cesaro and Sheamus hit a double team on Rollins, 2 count, but very slow 2 count. The fight with ref, giving Rollins a chance to regain his footing, and attack Sheamus, more wild back and forth, Ambros gets tagged in, goes after Sheamus, this match is just insane. These guys are beating the fuck outta each other. I am so distracted by the blood and action I can’t write a commentary. This may be my MOTN. Ambrose and Rollins retain after a kick to the face from Rollins and Ambrose hitting Dirty Deeds on Sheamus for the 3 count pin.
HOLY SHIT THAT WAS OFF THE HOOK. I wish Cesaro well, that was one hell of a face shot bro. You are seriously amazing for finishing that match.

Raw Women’s Championship Fatal 5 Way
Alexa Bliss (c) vs Nia Jaxx vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley vs Emma- I want to watch this so… don’t expect much commentary. Emma attacked Bliss and Sasha and Baley attacked Jaxx from the start. I love Nia Jaxx’s cute girly scream in between beating the snot out of everyone else. Her double Samoan drop on Bliss and Banks was sick. Hell, she even tosses Baley around like a ragdoll.  It took a triple team on Jaxx to dump her out of the ring. Ok, that 4 on one move looked fucking dangerous, and it looks like Nia Jaxx actually got hurt. Lots of back and forth between the remaining 4 women, then there is a pin off, and pin breaks, until Nia Jaxx comes in and destroys everyone again, but somehow Bliss sidesteps the attack and gets the pin on Baley. Bliss retains the RAW Women’s Championship. I like watching all 5 of these women wrestle, it was a great match overall except that one move that was a little ugly.

John Cena vs Roman Reigns – Cena comes out to chants of “John Cena Sucks” that’s actually louder than his theme music. It’s pretty amazing how Los Angeles hates him as much as NYC does… lol. Reigns music hits, they boo him too. Cena laughs. I do have to say I saw 10x the Roman Reigns shirts when I was out flyering than I did John Cena shirts… Just saying. (if I handed you a flyer and you landed here, congratz!) Reigns shoulder tackles Cena and runs through him like a freight train. The men just circle each other… Cena leaves. Reigns runs up and socks him in the face. Ha! Reigns chases Cena back to the ring and socks him again. And then a third time. John Cena tries to fight back and Reigns slams him for a 2 count pin attempt. Reigns starts putting the boots to Cena, and the camera work makes me wanna puke. Whats this wrestling society x? Cena is out of the ring Reigns chases him around and tries to send him into the stairs but Cena reverses it. Booker T just called John Cena “Old School” lol. Now Cena gets tossed into the steps. Cena runs away from Reigns, but Reigns manages to hit him with the Drive-By. Reigns is telling Cena “You’re in a fight Son” lol. Reigns put Cena back in the ring, covers him for 2 count. One of the announcers called Cena GOAT, UM NO. Reigns dropped Cena again. Then socks him in the head. Reigns kicks Cena around a little more, literally, then another 2 count. Cena powers out of submission, gets some steam, then Reigns stops him in his tracks, Cena gains steam again, gets reigns down, goes for the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, and Reigns hits him with a Samoan Drop instead. Cena its the 5KS and tries to do the FU but Reigns cuts him off. Cena is flopping around the ring like a fish outta water. Cena hits Reigns with a superman punch then puts Reigns into the STF. Reigns picks up Cena, Sit Out Power Bomb for a 2 count. They now go punch for punch, Reigns ducks, then goes for a tackle, gets caught by Cena, FU, Reigns kicks out on the 2 count.  Cena goes to the top, Reigns hits Cena on the way down, 2 count on Cena. Reigns hit Cena with the Superman Punch for another 2 count. Reigns goes for the spear, Cena sidesteps him and tosses him into the ring post. Cena goes to the second rope to try to do the FU and hits it on Reigns, and he still kicks out after 2. Cena now tears apart the Spanish and German Announce tables… Puts Reigns on the Spanish Announce table, and Reigns counters and spears him onto the German table. And they don’t get a “Holy Shit” or “This is Awesome” chant either. Reigns drags Cena to the ring, goes for a cover and gets a 2 count. Reins roars, goes for the spear, and Cena grabs him does the FU, and rolls through it, and then does it again, and Reigns still kicks out.  Reigns hit Cena with a Superman Punc and finally gets the pin on Cena. Reigns is the winner! Yes, I know they changed the name of Cena’s finisher. I refuse to call it the AA. FU for life.

Miz wants to be the first person to have an exclusive interview with Roman Reigns on Miz TV on RAW on Monday Night. Kurt Angle Agrees and says the Miz can kick off the show with it.

Cruiserweight Championship Match
Neville (c) vs Enzo Amore – Enzo makes fun of Neville, and calls him an elf… lol. Clearly, Enzo hasn’t looked at his own outfit lately. They start off with a lot of chain wrestling. Eventually, Enzo reaches to the ropes to try to get away from Neville. more back and forth until Enzo tries to use the ropes to get out of the hold, and Neville sweeps his feet out from under him. Enzo goes for a DDT put gets caught and shoved into the turnbuckle then stomped by Neville. Neville chokes Enzo in the corner with his boot. Neville looks like he means business. Neville rams Enzo into the barricade. Ref is counting, Neville is sitting in the ring, Enzo is on the floor… Enzo just beats the count rolling in at 9. Neville stomps him some more. Neville puts Enzo into a headlock submission, but Enzo fights out and Neville tries to toss him out of the ring, but he holds on, and flips back in, so Neville kicks him in the face. 2 count. The crowd is chanting “This is boring” I actually agree. I expected more out of this match. Neville lands a bunch more kicks on Enzo, then goes to the top, and Neville goes for the Red Arrow, changes moves, goes for the Phoenix Splash, misses, Enxo climbs up and hits Neville with a DDT from the top rope. 2 count pin cover. Neville rolls out, Enzo is up. Neville pops up and hits Enzo as he tries to get him on the outside. Neville tosses Enzo right over the barricade then climbs back in the ring in hopes Enzo is counted out. Enzo has taken the Cruiserweight Championship Title Belt, and has gotten back into the ring, Neville is chasing him, ref is demanding the belt, hits Neville with a low blow behind the refs back and gets the pin, Enzo is the new Cruiserweight Champion!

So far the only match I didn’t get right was the women’s title match.

Universal Championship Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs Braun Strowman – Braun Strowman stands his grounds against Lesnera and hes not able to be taken down easily. Lesnar gives him a suplex, he pops up and chokeslams Lesner than hits him for a running powerslam for a 2 count pin attempt.  Strowman continues to beat on Lesnar. Strowman is very much in charge of this match. Lesnar goes for F5 but his back goes out, and Braun bounces him out of the ring. Outside the ring, Lesnar tries to fight back, but Strowman runs him into the ring post. Lesnar is getting his ass kicked. Strowman is just running through Brock Lesnar. Lesnar steps out of the way, and tries to get Strowman in the Kimora, strowman was holding the ropes, but the ref didn’t make Lesnar let go??? Strowman is now down, and Lesnar still has the Kimora locked in. Hre had already had the rope, why wasn’t the break forced? Braun gives Lesner a spinebuster after escaping the Kimora. Lesnar hits Strowman with three German suplexes in a row, no make that 4… make that 5… Lesnar gets Strowman up for the F5 but Strowman reverses it into the running powerslam but doesn’t cover Lesnar because he hurt his arm. Strowman gives Lesnar another running powerslam for a 2 count. Lesnar hits Strowman with the f5 to retain the Universal Championship. BOOOOOOOO I call Shenanigans, as STROWMAN WAS HOLDING THE ROPES DURING THE SUBMISSION and the ref didn’t force a break. What kind of dumfuckery was that???

So other than Braun Strowman getting fucked over, that was a pretty awesome PPV for a RAW brand show, as they were kinda stale, and if you look back through some of my recent reviews of other PPV’s you will see I was less than impressed. Overall MOTN goes to the Tag Team Match, that was brutal. If you liked this post make sure you click my name at the top to read more of my writing! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter as well!

No Mercy 2017 Predictions

WWE No Mercy is this Sunday in Los Angeles, CA at the Staples Center! Tickets are available on StubHub and Ticket Liquidator right now, some prices are lower than Ticketmaster!

Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Jason Jordan – Jason Jordan has shown some serious promise… must be in his genetics… hahaha You know when they announced he was “Kurt Angles son, I actually did the research to see if that could even make sense. It can. Jordan should be able to beat The Miz fair and Square, but this is The Miz we are talking about. The Miz will retain his title.

Finn Bálor vs. Bray Wyatt – Will the Demon Bálor come out to play for No Mercy? We can only hope! I got my money on Bálor.

Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs Cesaro & Sheamus – Cesaro and Sheamus really, really want their titles back. Ambrose and Rollins aren’t going to be that easy to beat. I have Rollins and Ambrose retaining.

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville vs. Enzo Amore – Neville is amazing. Enzo is… hilarious. Is Neville going to be able to outsmart Enzo’s hijinks? I think Enzo may walk away with the Cruiserweight Championship.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Nia Jax vs. Emma (Fatal 5-Way Match) NIA JAX!!!!!! Nuff said.

John Cena vs. Roman Reigns- RAW called this a “Dream Match” um WUT? I can hear the boo’s already… for both of them. Does anyone actually care about this match? I hear more people talking about Nikki Bella on Dancing with the Stars, than John Cena’s wrestling career these days. I’m sticking with Roman Reigns on this one.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman – IF BRAUN STROWMAN LOSES I RIOT!!!!
