Universal Championship – Who is Favored in the Triple Threat Match?

Who Will Prevail at the Royal Rumble?

When it was revealed that Brock Lesnar would be defending the Universal Championship against two opponents, Braun Strowman and Kane, ardent consumers of WWE were initially puzzled about Kane being involved in the match. Shortly thereafter the consensus was that Kane was added to the match so that neither Strowman nor Lesnar would have to take a pinfall or submission loss. For those unaware, a Triple Threat match creates a situation where a championship can be lost without actually being beaten outright.

Lesnar is currently favored to retain at the Royal Rumble, with odds of -500. This means it would take a $500 bet to win only $100. This makes both Braun Strowman at +300 and Kane at +1000 the underdogs. A $100 bet on Kane upon success would yield $1000.

Lesnar and Strowman met one on one for Brock’s championship in September of last year at the PPV No Mercy and saw the champion defeat the challenger with his finisher, the F5. This was heavily criticized, as the current landscape of important WWE matches usually requires MULTIPLE finishers to defeat an opponent. To be fair, Braun did dominate Lesnar in both the match itself and the scuffles and brawls leading up to it.

With the idea that Kane is only involved to take the pin or be submitted, it would be very interesting to see a prop bet on which competitor will be the one to do so, however no such wager yet exists. Wagering on this particular match is only available to bettors in the UK and Ireland right now, but will be available to gamblers worldwide sometime before the Royal Rumble event.

AJ Styles vs “The Demon” Finn Bálor: Don’t expect much if any commentary, I am 100% into watching this match… lol The crowd is chanting “THIS IS AWESOME” before the match even starts. 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. So many kickouts. “The Demon” Finn Bálor wins after hitting the Coup de Grace for the 3 count. That was MOTN if not MOTY. Holy shit, I am going to watch that like 10 more times.

Elias Sampson vs Jason Jordan: Another match I want to watch, and distraction of friends…These two move well for big guys. Sampson is not taking any shit from Jordan. These guys go back and forth quite a bit both handing out quite a bit of abuse, catching back up, Sampson tosses Jordan, goes for the pin, but Jordan rolls him into a small package for the win.

5 on 3 Tables Ladders and Chairs Clusterfuck
Kurt Angle, Deanol Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus, Braun Strowman and Kane: Seriously why… Rollins, Ambrose, and Angle enter through the crowd.  Ambrose, Rollins, and Angle all grab chairs to start it off. 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. They go up the ramp to all the tables and chairs piled at the top, and Miz has a garbage truck back into the arena. The 5 men go to through Ambrose and Rollins into the truck and do, but they fight back, and climb on top of the truck, then launch at the other 5 men. Ambrose and Rollinschase the Miz, beat him with a chair, then take him back to the tables on the ramp. Kane comes out of nowhere to save The Miz, but Rollins and Ambrose fight back. Strowman then attacks them as they go to throw Kane through a table. Kane and Strowman then start brawling, and Kane choke slammed Strowman through the stage. Kane then goes above the pit Strowman is in and rips the chairs that are hanging down so they fall on Strowman. Strowman is pushing the chairs aside and trying to get up under a pile of 10 to 15 of them but is losing steam. 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. Cesaro and Sheamus try to save Kane, the whole team turns on Strowman, forgetting their actual opponents. They put strowman in the truck and close it, compacting Strowman into the trash. The truck drives away. Cesaro and Sheamus drag Rollins back to the ring, the four men left Ambrose behind. Ambrose crawls down the ramp. Its 4 on one with Rollins in the ring, Miz hits him with a DDT then Desaro and Sheamus hit him with a double team, Ambrose gets in to attack Kane, and gets beat down, Kane goes to finish Ambrose, and Angle comes back out to his music. Angle Slips Cesaro and Shamus then gives them both suplexes, then goes after the miz and Kane.

Ambrose, Rollins, and Angle are now stalking The Miz. All 3 hit their finisher on The Miz, they hit the Triple Powerbomb on The Miz for the win.

Overall the show was hella entertaining despite my earlier complaints. Seriously I think the Styles Balor match may be the WWE MOTY. I am looking forward to seeing what goes down on RAW tomorrow!

WWE No Mercy 2017 Results

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!
