Politics and Wrestling: It’s Still Real To Me

If one lights a fire for others, one will brighten one’s own way. -Nichiren

2017 was a hell of a year for me and for Bet Wrestling. Just over a year ago I began writing for this website after a pretty long hiatus from the wrestling world. As many before me, and many since, I had become disillusioned with the world around me, and needed a break to see what I was missing in “real life”. During my time spent in pro wrestling, I missed weddings, birthdays, holiday gatherings, and all kinds of other events, but such is the life of an entertainer and/or athlete, as if you do not take that call when it comes, you may never get another chance.

Last year when I began writing for this site, I was in the midst of a protest, actually living on the street in front of Los Angeles City Hall in a tent with at least a dozen others, and a few dozen part-timers for 2 months. This was not even my first time staying at city hall in protest, I actually have spent more than 100 days in total at city hall in protest encampments. The last time was in protest against the lack of prosecution of killer police officers in Los Angeles. To be honest I know this is extremely hard for most people across the country to understand, as they could never imagine someone getting blasted for nothing, but here in Los Angeles its a regular occurrence, and for black and brown people its a fear they must face daily, even if it just rests in the back of their minds.

In the past few years, I have met countless grieving parents and family members who often never find out what really happened to their loved ones. The lack of accountability and the racist social structure often fails these families blaming the victims of police violence, instead of critically looking at the actions of the police who killed these persons. In order for this genocide to end, the public needs to be educated about what has really led to this, what the history of policing is, and how in 2018 we still live in a nation where black and brown people are not free, as they face imprisonment or death at a 60% higher rate than their white counterparts. As someone who has a mixed heritage, that was erased by whiteness, I can use my perceived privilege to inform others, and I do this in a variety of mediums.

I was told recently that there was no place for this in wrestling, but I disagree. Wrestling is and always has been a social commentary. Pro wrestling has a history rich in racism, sexism, and right-wing political leanings that carry on today. Linda McMahon is the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, a woman who’s mega-corporation WWE has bought up almost every major competition they have seen over the past 20 years or bought out their video catalog after the company died off. Kane is running for Mayor of his home County in TN. The President of the United States is a WWE Hall of Famer, yet many people want to pretend that wrestling isn’t political. Well here is a huge news flash, it is!

About two months ago the radio network I have been working with finally came to fruition and announced that we would be doing our beta launch. The next day my comrade Brandon said he wished there was a show about the history of wrestling in California, and I said: “let’s do one!”. That’s how our radio show Hollywood Jobbers was born. From the very first episode on, we had some sort of politically motivated commentary, as I met my co-host through the local protest scene. We have similar politics, and we both have a love for wrestling. Most of my politically active friends either don’t watch it at all or only watch the big shows, not the territory or independent level wrestling. Our network we are hosted on is a social justice radio network called RadioJustice.org and we are currently the only “sports” show on the network. Our hopes for the show are to educate and entertain, giving our own commentary on the past and present of pro wrestling from our point of view. So far its gotten great feedback from my friends in wrestling, as well as from those who listen to our network and are just discovering it, whether its non-fans or folks who haven’t watched since childhood.

We quickly realized that our show would have a bigger audience if we switched nights, as east coast folks reached out, and asked us to change nights so we were not on the radio against RAW on tv in their time zone. We have recorded 8 shows in the past two month period and most of the feedback has been positive, except for one hater who based his decision on one show. Our shows have included interviews when we could get them, as due to our original studio backing out after the project began, we have had to struggle to find quiet places to record, and times that work for us and our guests to get them on the phone, rather than in studio as we had originally planned. Despite not having a studio we have consistently produced content for the network as we promised. In 2018 we plan to cover more topics, continue to bring you fun interviews and hopefully, our networks goal of building our very own studio will come to fruition.

Those are just two of the many projects I have been working on. Since Digital Media Management is my main gig, I work with over 50 companies, organizations, and people to help maintain, or run their pages, and to create or build content for them. It’s such a wide range of products, services, causes, and people, its a ton of work to keep it all together, hence why for many of them I am a team member, or mainly a consultant. I get pages started and teach their owners how to run them. Then they decide whether they want to operate them or pay me to do it. I am hell bent on organic reach and think most paid advertising has proven to be useless for the majority of those interested in online marketing. I instead implement and teach ways to target the direct audience people want to hit, which is the most important part of online marketing, knowing your audience.

Some things I may associate with, may not be perfectly politically correct, yet even then I spent much effort to use the platforms I can to socially education and motivate others. Many have tried to shut me up over time, including the government, but I am still here, and still getting published, and most importantly still watching my numbers and hits grow.  In one year my content on this site alone has gathered over 150,000 hits, and this site has seen over a quarter of a million unique visitors this year, and almost a million visits! That doesn’t account for the other sites I write, or create content for or manage, this is just one place, where I can spew out my thoughts in an editorial commentary and not worry about censorship even when the point I make may not be agreed with.

And yes, that is your right to disagree with me, it’s your right not to listen to me, or read my ramblings. If you don’t like what I have to say, that’s OK, as not everything is for everyone. When I create media on my terms, it is on my terms, love it or hate it. And before you say “no one wants to hear what you have to say” maybe you should make sure you aren’t saying that to a person who’s actually getting more hits on their hobby then you do on your passion site… just saying.

2018 is gearing up to be an awesome year, and I would like to thank all those who have supported my return to wrestling through writing and media. It’s been awesome to see how many folks are truly supportive of what I do. And thanks to the Owner of BetWrestling for standing behind my work, and allowing me to express freely what I feel needs to be said, even when it’s an unpopular opinion. Thanks to all those who have uplifted my voice, or stood behind me, it means a lot to have your support.

The preshow is currently on, and by watching Carmella with her briefcase, and her body language, I would guess she is going to try to cash it in tonight after the lumberjack match.

Preshow:
Mojo Rawley vs Zack Ryder: Mojo runs out ready to tear someone apart. Ryder walks out to the ring looking pretty confident. Ryder hits Rawley with a dropkick right away,. then it quickly goes to the outside. There is some really exciting back and forth between these former tag team partners. Ryder seemed to be in control at first but has quickly run out of steam and Rawley has taken control. Ryder fights out of a choke hold to be tossed out of the ring. Rawley follows him out and runs him into the barricade… and commercial break for WWE Shop… WTF. When we come back Rawley has Ryder in another choke hold, Ryder fights out but gets taken down again by a big boot. Rawley is spending too much time shit talking and not enough time trying to pin Ryder. His shit talking giver Ryder enough time to recover and fight back. Ryder lays into him with forearms and a good knee to the face in the corner, Ryder gets a 2 count by Rawley gets his foot on the bottom rope.  Rawley gets his steam back and plows through Ryder, getting an easy 3 count. WELL DUH.

Main Card

US Championship Title Match
Baron Corbin(c) vs Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler
I got stuck on a phone call but when I get back this shit is on fire. Ziggler is showing exactly what he is made of by taking control in this match, and so is Corbin by running away. Ziggler almost gets a pin on Roode but Corbin broke it up. Ziggler and Roode each get a hit on Corbin, Rood goes to give Ziggler his finisher and Corbin hit him with the deep 6 for the 2 count. Boston crowd is hot on Roode chanting for him. Roode gets Corbin down but Ziggler takes him out… a ton more shit happened, it was crazy Roode tries the glorious DDT but Ziggler counters and gets a 2 count pin on Roode. Holy shit too much happening. Ziggler gets sent into the turnbuckle, Roode hits the glorious DDT, but Corbin broke up the pin, and gave Roode a backbreaker on the outside. Corbin is about to take out Roode, Ziggler takes them both out, and gets the pin on Corbin to become the new US champion! HOLY SHIT! Congratz!

YES It’s RUSEV DAY!!!! (Everyday is Rusev Day!)
Aiden English comes out first and introduces Rusev, and then works on finishing the “12 days of Rusev” and its such a beautiful tribute the fans explode into Rusev Day chants! An extra verse is about to be added but then Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable come out to the ring… It’s time for the next match!

Smackdown Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Title Match
Rusev and Aiden English vs Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable vs The New Day vs The Uso’s(c)
The Usos are still doing the stupid penitentiary gimmick, I hate it. Please stop. So they are only letting 4 men in the ring at once, however quickly all men end up in the ring, then quickly cleared from the ring. This is a no DQ match, so all hell has broken loose, bodies flying everywhere. Shelton Benjamin gives Jimmy Uso a massive move from the top rope, it was awesome. Shelton Benjamin is now getting torn apart by Big E and Kofi. Rusev comes in but Kofi dropkicks him as well. Kofi is on fire and Big E is tossing him into each opponent, until Rusev cuts him off, goes after Jay Uso and almost gets a 2 count pin attempt. I guess there are “legal men” in the match but frankly, it’s too hard to follow. Its rest hold time, Gable has Kofi and English has one of the Usos in a hold. Now RUsev took over and is stomping said Uso…  Gable and Benjamin continue to work over Kofi. I don’t understand the rules to this match, its no DQ but only 4 men in the ring at once and anything outside the ring goes? DUDE WWE LOGIC IS GONNA MAKE MY BRAIN EXPLODE. Big E and Jay Uso take out English and Gable double cover 2 count, Jay and Big E start to brawl, the Usos clear the ring. Gable and Benjamin return to the ring and gable has Jay Uso in a Submission while Benjamin is protecting him from interference until English interferes and Rusev kick Gable in the head from the other side. Rusev and Gable are legal in the ring. Rusev gets the Accolade in but Big E breaks it up, but that’s broken up Rusev pins Big E for a 2 count, twice in a row… Rusev gets Big E in the Accolade now, and Big E is trying to fight out, but Rusev is stronger. Gable breaks it up by giving Rusev a nearly impossible suplex, he then takes English out and Gives Big E a suplex as well, the Usos come in and stop Gable to retain their championship titles. That was awesome even if the rules made no sense.

Smackdown Women’s Championship Match
LumberJack Match Charlotte vs Natalya
The Riot Squad, Carmella, Tamina w/Lana, Naomi, are at ringside as the lumberjacks.
As I said earlier in this article I think Carmella is going to cash in the money in the bank briefcase tonight. It’s a shame Ellsworth isn’t there to see it.The match starts off with some chaining then the two women go strike for strike, Natalya gets thrown out of the ring, and Naomi kicks her a few times, she gets back in and throws Charlotte out, and the girls jump on Charlotte on the outside. Nattie and Charlotte continue back and forth and Charlotte gets a neckbreaker for a 2 count on Nattie. Nattie isn’t slowed down much by this then put the boots to Charlotte, and send her outside but the riot squad sends her back in. Nattie keeps control, but and Charlotte is clearly getting abused, Nattie chokes her on the ropes, the ref breaks it up, Nattie is out but Carmella tosses her back in, Charlotte lights Nattie up with a bunch of chops, Nattie cuts her off, continuing her assault, she almost gets Charlotte in the sharpshooter, but Charlotte gets out before it’s locked in. Charlotte and Nattie end up on the outside, and all the other women Jump Charlotte. Nattie gets the sharpshooter locked in on Charlotte this time, the hold is broken, then all hell breaks loose, Charlotte does a huge moonsault off the top to the outside, everyone is down, but Nattie avoids it and beats on Charlotte some more. Nattie goes to put Charlotte in the sharpshooter, but Charlotte reverses and wins by submission. Nattie cuts a promo about being treated with nothing but disrespect. Well we still love you lady. Meow.

Breezango vs The Bludgeon Brothers
Poor Breezango. Looks like Harper and Rowan may kill them. Harper and Breeze start out, and Harper just knocks breeze down. Rowan is tagged in but chases Fandango outside, and when he does go to the ring, Breeze kicks him in the face. He is stunned for a moment, grabs Breeze, but Fandango cuts Rowan off. Harper comes to the other side of the ring to help his partner get this match on track. Harper and Rowan double team Breezes head into the canvas, he’s down. They then unleash hell on Fandango, ONE TWO THREE it’s over with Rowan getting the pin on Fandango. I guess Fashion Files has been canceled.

Speaking of canceled….

Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens vs Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura
w/ Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as “Special Guest Referees”
Watching the crowd do the “Yes” chant for DB makes me want to cry…
The match starts out with Orton and Zayn, and of course, both ref’s in the ring,  a little chain wrestling, then Orton goes for a quick pin, and both refs start counting at different paces, and Sami kicks out. Nakamura tags in and begins to chain with Zayn. Zayn backs him into the ropes and Shane immediately breaks it up. More back and forth but its already clear these duel special guest refs do not see eye to eye. Owens tags i and gives Nakamura some good chops, and then Nakamura turns it around and gets a 2ish count pin on Owens. But again the refs are not even remotely on the same count time. Now Shane and DB divide the ring and decide to make calls only on “their side”. This shit is hella distracting, and this match is overly gimmicky, and not in a fun stupid kinda way. Orton and Zayn are not working well together at all. It seems like Orton and Zayn may have heat IRL? I’m trying to muster up some care for this match, but it’s too hard. this is boring. Finally, its Owens and Nakamura and Nakamura took Owens out with an awesome kick and just begins to unload on him. Zayn tries to get on the apron but gets cut off by Nakamura, and then Nakamura turns back to Owens and just continues to unload on him. 3 count pin attempt on Owens. 2nd 2 count pin on Owens. Nakamura does some crazy rollup flip into a triangle armbar, and its awesome, Nakamura gets his shoulders down, and DB counts Shane gets mad. Owens tags Zayn in, Nakamura kicks him, but Zayn still lands the blue powerbomb on Nakamura. Owens tags in but is cut off by Orton,  and Zayn tries to get in too, and Shane pushes him out, Nakamura gets the tag, and Orton almost takes Zayn’s head off. Orton is now in control, Zayn is on the apron. Zayn tries to go to the top, but Orton cuts him off with a hit to the nuts, which DB calls as illegal and warns Orton. Orton gives Zayn a huge superplex and Owens pulls Orton outside. Nakamura then goes after Owens on the outside, Zayn comes out to help, both refs come out… everyone’s at ringside, this is more than a 10 count fools!  Utter insanity Owens sets Nakamura up on the table and gives him a huge splash. Everyone has been out of the ring for like 20 seconds or more… this match should technically be over… but sadly it isn’t. Zayn is back in the ring, and Orton gives him a huge power slam then hits him with a neckbreaker and an RKO, and Shane goes to make the call on the cover, he claims it was 3, DB says only 2, they are arguing, Orton is pissed, Owens gets in the ring, Orton hits him with an RKO too, Zayn rolls up Orton, and gets a 2 count, Orton reverses 2 count, Zayn gets Orton pinned again and Shane shoves them screwing the pin. DB is trying to throw Shane out of the match, Shane refuses, Zayn gets another roll up on Orton while he is distracted, and DV gives a super quick pin count like Shane had tried to do earlier in the match. Owens and Zayn are safe to see another Smackdown.

WWE Championship Match
AJ Styles(C) vs Jinder Mahal
The match starts off with some back and forth, and the crowd is already chanting “this is awful”. The Singh brothers are at ringside as always. I’ll have to agree with the crowd this is awful, and there is 35 more minutes of this shit show at the very least. Styles gets tossed into the ropes and falls to the floor. Mahal chases after him but AJ cuts him off. Mahal gets back in the ring to stop the count on himself, then oddly enough decides to to put AJ in then pulls him out again to throw him into the exposed barricade. Mahal beats AJ on the outside more, then tosses him back in, as falls only count in the ring. Mahal kicks AJ off the apron to the floor again, the Singh brothers aren’t going after him, Mahal picks up Styles and tosses him into the announce table. Mahal drags Styles back to the ring, and puts him in a crossface. Then hits him in the face after letting go. Jinder then gets Styles in a scissor lock from behind, crushing Styles ribs. Styles gets out and continues to fight, but Mahal once again reverses, and gives Styles a super awkward abdominal stretch. Styles fights out, Mahal continues to abuse him and shoulder tackles him to the face then goes to the second rope and punches Styles in the face as well. AJ manages to cut Mahal off with a dropkick, Mahal rolls out of the ring, and the ref is counting. Styles makes a come back, goes to springboard off the ropes, but Mahal grabs the ropes and Styles falls on his injured ribs. Mahal gets a gutbuster on STyles, for a 2 count pin attempt. Mahal sets styles up in the corner on the ropes and starts punching him, he wants to give Styles a suplex off the top, but Styles starts to counter, Mahal chokes him, and Styles drops him in and electric chair drop. both men are down, the ref is counting. Mahal barely gets up first, But styles is ready, Mahal cuts him off, but Styles isn’t down and takes Mahal out, both men are down again, and Styles splashes Mahal in the corner. Styles does this sick neckbreaker flip on Mahal, for a 2 count. Mahal takes control but Styles cuts him off with boots to the face, more back and forth, Mahal tosses AJ. Styles gets this sweet suplex for a 2 count, Mahal is still down, and Styles is kicking him in the face, Mahal counters, Mahal his a huge backdrop but Styles kicks out. AJ manages the pailei kick on Mahal. Mahal continues his assault, kneeing Styles, dropping him, kneeing him again for a 2 count. Mahal tries to choke styles from the top rope, Styles gives him a jawbreaker and drops him. Both men are down yet again. Max the cat keeps trying to count Mahal out… I feel you Max. The Singh bros get involved, Styles takes them out, then he springboards off the top, misses, and gets a kick to the back by Mahal. Mahal hits his finisher, and Styles just out after a 2 count. The fans in Boston are pissed. they are booking and chanting “this is awful” again, Styles locks in an ankle lock and Mahal taps out, AJ Styles retains the WWE Championship.

Overall there were little surprises except for Ziggler walking away with the US title. This was a mediocre event, and I hope we see better matches in 2018. Overall it wasn’t terrible, but the double ref gimmick was fucking stupid. ALso to hear people chant “this is awful” twice during an AJ Styles match should show WWE what they need to work on… like matchups people will actually care about.

WWE Clash Of Champions Predictions!!

UPDATE – See the early betting odds for this event by clicking here!

It’s that time again! Sorry I have been really busy and not writing as much as I should be! I recently launched a new podcast about wrestling on an all-new internet radio station. I’ve been so busy I almost forgot the PPV was this Sunday!

You can watch it on the WWE Network for FREE if you are a new subscriber! If you live in the Boston area, you can still get tickets on Stubhub or TicketLiquidator, but as you already know, this will be a sold out show!

So here are my thoughts on the matches as they stand as of today:

Zack Ryder vs. Mojo Rawley – MOJO!!!!!!! Need I say more?

Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers – Oh Breezango, what have you gotten yourselves into? I think that Harper and Rowan are going to murder them.

United States Champion Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler (Triple Threat Match) – I am so looking forward to this match!!! All these guys are great wrestlers, and are hard-hitting wrestlers. I think that Bobby Roode does have the ability to take the belt away from Corbin, however, I don’t think it will happen in a 3-way match, especially where Ziggler is involved.

Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees) – Sigh. WHYYYYYYYYYYYY???? While I am sure this match will have its moment’s and I like all the guys involved, WHY???  Someone tell Owen and Zayn they are 6 years too late on the Occupy hype train, that crashed and burned 3 years ago fools. Lame. I don’t care who wins… this is stupid, fire whoever wrote this garbage, not Zayn and Owens.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Rusev & Aiden English (Fatal 4-Way Match) – I am so happy to see Shelton Benjamin back in action, even if he does have to team with Gable… (ha!) I think this match is gonna be your typical clusterfuck 4 way tag, with lots of broken bodies. The Uso’s will most likely retain…

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya (Lumberjack Match) – This match is going to be awesome! I love watching both these women wrestle, but sorry Charlotte, I gotta go with Nattie on this one! Get that title back on your waist where it belongs!!!

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal – Sigh…. why? Wrestling was getting interesting again, and then we got slapped in the face with a momentum stopping bitchslap. I really don’t want to watch the same people wrestle again and again and again. Jinder lost… he is a cheater, and does he really deserve a rematch? Nah they won’t give us Styles vs Nakamura yet… But I would have much rather watched him wrestle Rusev than Mahal again. AJ will retain the championship, or WWE may be attempting to incite a riot in Boston.

While this is a “Smackdown” branded PPV, I am not as excited for it as I usually would be. The highlights of this PPV will be the women’s match and the tag team clusterfuck for me.

Survivor Series 2017 Predictions w/Update Goodness!

This Sunday is Survivor Series live at the Toyota Center in Houston Texas! Tickets are still available from StubHub and Ticket Liquidator, so get them now as they are sure to sell out!

The matches have shifted quite a bit since their announcements as we have two new Champions, as AJ Styles and Charlotte Flair replace Jinder Mahal and Natalya in their respective champion vs champion matchups. I am also super sad they released James Ellsworth, and if you share my sentiment, you should use the hashtag #BringBackEllsworth

 

So here are my thoughts on the matches as they stand as of the time of this writing!
Edit: 2 more matches announced, which i saw on nodq.com
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs Breezango (Pre-Show): Breeeeeeeezango! What more needs to be said?
Elias Sampson vs Matt Hardy (Pre-Show): I hope this is a sing off. No really, I do. I also think Matt will win with help from Jeff who will run in from the crowd.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
Enzo Amore (C) vs. Kalisto (Kickoff Match): We have already seen these two fight it out, and I think this will be an enjoyable match. Since people seem to truly despise Enzo in an out of the ring these days, there is a good chance he will retain the title.

Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. United States Champion Baron Corbin: This is going to be a great match. I love Baron Corbin, and think he moves incredibly well for a big guy, and this is a great matchup. The outcome will be based on whether or not the Miztorage is at ringside. If they interfere, The Miz could be victorious. But who knows, Corbin may be smart enough to stomp them out early, leaving The Miz to fight on his own… My heart says Corbin, but my gut says The Miz.

Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos: Really Looking forward to this match. I think it’s going to be a lot of fast-paced fun, with some huge tag team moves. I think Cesaro and Sheamus will take this one.

The Shield vs. The New Day: The Sheild is reunited once more, now that Roman Reigns has returned, but will their newly rekindled alliance be enough to overcome the incredible bond The New Day has built. I am going to be unpopular and say The New Day will be victorious.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair: I really wanted to see Nattie tear Bliss apart, so now I guess we get to see Charlotte do it instead. Charlotte… duh

Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Team RAW: Sasha Banks, Asuka, Alicia Fox, Nia Jaxx, Bayley
Team Smackdown: Naomi, Becky Lynch, Tamina, Carmella, and a 5th woman TBA:
BRING BACK PAIGE ALREADY YOU FOOLS! On that note, the 5th woman from team Smackdown could really make this… Not really sure which team will take this, but wth the current line up, I think team RAW may have this one…

Men’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match
Team RAW: Kurt Angle, HHH, Jason Jordan, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman
Team Smackdown: John Cena, Shane McMahon, Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, Bobby Rhoode:
WHY DO WE HAVE TO SEE HHH AND SHANE IN THE SAME FUCKING MATCH? Is Stephanie going to be the secret 5th woman… UGH Its like those marks who buy a company to put themselves over… on that note… team RAW will probably win just because they have Strowman.

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. WWE Champion AJ Styles (Champion vs. Champion Match) I don’t want to watch this match. Mostly because I still hate Lesnar, because he is boring and a shitty champ. And honestly its going to be a struggle for him to be in a believable match with Styles, who can wrestle circles around him. I say Styles, cause fuck Lesner.Overall I am Looking forward to the show, no matter the snarky tone I get when I write about the matches.

This match is a clinic. THIS IS THE WAY WRESTLING SHOULD BE.  If you are missing this match your life sucks, just saying. This match is so good it’s unreal.

Don’t expect a full run down its a clusterfuck. Overall this is way more entertaining than I expected, but far from good. Just entertaining. I love Braun Strowman. Strowman put Angle through a table, Angles getting walked out, Rollins and Ambrose got beat silly with chairs. Angle can’t walk and has “passed out” at ringside. Rollins and Ambrose continue to get abused while they slowly walk Angle up the ramp. At this point, it’s just 5 on two beat down… All of a sudden Ambrose and Rollins start fighting back, then Strowman accidentally hits Kane with a chair, then they start fighting, then they all fight again, then they put a table up to put Ambrose through, the table doesnt break just the leg does sto the prop it up in the corner and Strowman tossed  Rollins through it.

Ambrose and Rollins attack Kane, and then the Miz attacks them but gets cut off, Kane double chokeslams Ambrose and Rollins through a set of tables. Sheamus and Ceasaro are back up, and carry Ambrose and Rollins back to the garbage truck, Strowman has finally gotten up, and is heading towards The Miz, Strowman takes out The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro then goes after Kane.

WWE TLC 2017 Predictions!

It’s that time again! I am writing up my predictions for WWE TLC 2017 and hope I can keep up my momentum in being fairly accurate. What I didn’t see coming was 3 superstars falling ill, and I hope they recover soon! I do have to say it was heartbreaking for all those Sheild fans stoked about the reunion.

So here goes:

Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Match) – Alicia Fox makes a good point that she has been around for a long time, yet rarely gets a good shot. I think this will be a fun match to watch. I also think Alicia Fox has experience and is a huge cheater so there is a good chance she will win this match.

Drew Gulak to present a WWE Cruiserweight Championship Edition of his PowerPoint Presentation (WWE TLC Kickoff)  This sounds so… exciting?

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto vs. Enzo Amore – I think the WWE universe has turned on Enzo Amore 100%. You would have thought the end of his partnership with Big Cass would have left him the one people felt sorry for, but in light of all the media surrounding him acting like an ass in real life, really makes you wonder if his newest incarnation isn’t his most real. I think Kalisto is great, and a good fit for the cruiserweight champion. I think he will retain his title, but I also think there is a potential from interference from other competitors vying for a shot at the Championship.

Asuka vs. Emma – All I can say is poor Emma. Like a lamb to the slaughter, she has no idea what she “won” when she beat 4 other women to get the opportunity to be the first to wrestle Asuka in her main roster debut. Asuka is going to destroy like 80% of the WWE women’s division. Sorry, Emma, you ain’t got a chance.

Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann vs. Gentleman Jack Gallagher & The Brian Kendrick- This match is going to be awesome. I am so looking forward to this. I think Gallagher and Kendrick will take the win.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James – I really hope Mickie James hands Alexa Bliss her ass. Honestly, her bratty girl wanna be Harley Quinn gimmick is played out, and not all that original. While Bliss is ok in the ring, she sucks at cutting promo’s and it’s almost as painful to listen to her speak as it was when WWECW hired Kelly Kelly. I hope Mickie James walks away with the title. She deserves it.

“The Demon” Finn Bálor vs. AJ Styles – Bray Wyatt getting sick was the best thing that happened to this PPV. This will easily be MOTN. They should just make it the main event at this point. I think the Demon may just run right over AJ Styles.

 Kurt Angle & Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs. Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman & Kane
(5-on-3 Handicap Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match)
This looks practically unwatchable. NO on so many levels.
1. No one wants to see Kane in this match. Go run your political campaign.
2. Why the fuck would Kurt Angle risk himself wrestling again in any match, let alone this BS.
3. Why not Jason Jordan with Ambrose and Rollins vs The Miz and The Bar, with Strowman as guest referee?

So this match will probably just be hella crazy, hard to follow, and Strowman is gonna kill everyone. It doesn’t matter who wins. The audience members are the real losers here.

Overall I am really disappointed that there is only ONE TLC MATCH. I am also disappointed WWE turned the main event into some clusterfuck no one really cares about. I just hope no one gets hurt.You can watch live from home on the WWE Network, and remember betting is open until the bell of each match, you can check out the latest lines here!
