WWE Extreme Rules Results

Pre show:

Kalisto vs Apollo Crews w/ Titus O’neil – I really enjoyed this match. Lots of high flying lucha action from Kalisto, and lots of power moves by Crews. These two guys work well off each others very different wrestling styles. This match has lots of action, and ends after Titus O’neil accidentally distracts Crews with advice and Kalisto hits the Salida Del Sol for the win.

Main Card:

Intercontinental Championship Match: If Ambrose gets DQ’d he loses the Title – The Miz vs Dean Abrose(c) – Basically this match is gonna be an attempted screw job. Maryse is in wrestling gear at ringside. So that says something. Miz tries to get Ambrose caught with the chair, is inciting him to beat and choke him.  A bit of wrestling happens… go figure… I’m imagining a “This is Boring” chant in my head. I’m way less interested in this match then I thought I’d be. I am also writing this from my cell so excuse any mistakes. Ok match has gotten a bit better since Ambrose dropped a elbow off the top. Still way less interesting than I’d expect from these guys. Abrose hurts his leg, Miz takes advantage. Gets dean in a figure 4. Ambrose gets the ropes but os pretty beat after, but still has more. During the fray Miz pulls a turnbuckle cover off. Ambrose doesnt fall gor it. More back and forth. Ambrose geta Miz in the figure 4. Miz gets the ropes. Maryse slaps Miz and official sends Maryse to the locker room. Miz slams Ambrose into the ref, official was still distracted by Maryse. Miz hits Skullcrusher thing for the win. Your new Intercontinental Champion: The Miz.

Backstage Interview with Bayley talking about watching some Kendo stick matches, and saw Wonder Woman and shes ready to get the Womens Championship Back.

Noam Dar and Alicia Fox vs Rich Swann and Sasha Banks: The guys start put but then the girls tag in and get a good chunk of time in the start of match but dont do much?? Guys tag back in, beat each other up. Alicia Fox tries to get involved,  anf Banks attacks her tossing her out of the ring. Everyones out, Banks goes to the top to get Fox Dar tries to move Fox and gets tackled by Banks instead. Swann drags him back to the ring to give him another move from the top for good measure, Swann pins Dar for the win. Swann and Banks dance in the ring.

Elias Sampson is in the ring, with a guitar and a keffiteh asking who wants tp rock with him… people don’t seem to want to rock with him. He sings about how gross Balitmore is gross to the tune of hotel California or something. Its really weird. Thanks Elias.  Booker T thinks he’s good, now im totally sold.

RAW Women’s Championship: Kendo Stick on a Pole Match – Bayley vs Alexa Bliss(c) – Bliss taunts Bayley right from the start. Alexa is first to go for the Kendo stick but Bayley gets the stick but drops it and both woman fall outside. Bayley blocks Alrxa from the stick then gives her a suplex on the groubd outside. Bayley has the kendo stick,  Alexa ran away, Bayley took too much time and Alexa kicks the kendo stick outta her hands and then beats Bayley with it. BAayley does a Belly to Bayley on Alexa, more bavk and forth, Alexa gets the stick again beats Bayley, and Alexa retains her title. Lesson: don’t hesitate when ypu have a kendo stick.

RAW Tag Team Championship Match: Steel Cage Match, both members must escape the cage – Cesaro and Sheamus vs The Hardy Boyz (c) – Cersaro and Sheamus have some sweet black kilts and matching jackets. The cage is open at the top so its pretty ridiculous. No nm pinfalls or submissions just both members have to escape. The Hardys are gicing a beating to Sheamus and Cesaro, who clearly have less cahe match experience.  Hardys try to escape, but thier opponents pull them back in. Matt Hardy gets to the top of the cage, Cesaro goes after him and hands him off to Sheamus for a standing senton. Cesaro and Sheamus are now in control, beating up the Hardys for thier chance at escape. Jeff fights back, climbs the cage, Sheamus pulls him down. More back and forth, all men are down. Hardys climb first but Sheamus and Cesaro follow, all men at the top of the cage. Jeff makes it out, its now 2 on one, but Matt takes both men down momentarily. Matt scales the cage, Ceasaro and Sheamus are dragging him back into the ring and he gets a double Razors Edge. Jeff Hardy is trying to get back in, but Cesaro slams the cage door on his face. Sheamus tries the door but Matt gets him in a Twist of Fate. Matt then pulls Ceasaro down, but Cesaro gets up and pulls him down and C&S give Maty the White Noise. Jeff gets back in and does the Whisper in the Wind from the top of the cage. Race to the outside of the cage, Ceasaro and Sheamus for the win and the Tag Titles! Yaaaaaaay!

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match: Submission Match – Austin Aries vs Neville (c) – This match is too much.. plus I rather watch than write… The match was awesome. Neville retains his title. 205Live matches are way better than RAW matches IMO.

Fatal 5 way for #1 contender for Universal Championship Match against Bork Lesner – Bray Wyatt vs Seth Rollins vs Samoa Joe vs Roman Reigns vs Finn Baylor – Joe and Rollings and Wyatt and Balor start off, leaving Reigns standing alone. This Match is way too much to follow to try to write about. Results when it happens… the match was nuts witb Joe and Wyatt teaming up like a wrecking crew. All sorts of chair shots and high spots and even a trip through the barricaide. Samoa Joe wins by Submission. That means we have to watch him wrestle Lesner. Sounds painful. To watch.

Overall I thought this PPV was meh. The last two matches were the best. My MOTN was Neville and Aries.

Next PPV is Money in the Bank followed by Great Balls of Fire.

Smackdown Live Results 1/24

Somehow I found myself watching Smackdown Live tonight. Honestly I could not tell you the last time I watched Smackdown, but here goes…

We open with The Miz complaining to Daniel Brian about not having a private locker room…. talk about privilege. Maryse looks nice though, I always dig her outfits. She may very well be the best dressed woman in wrestling, ever.
Daniel Brian tells him he gets his shot at Dean Ambrose tonight, Miz asks for a no DQ match, but DB has a much better idea, a LUMBERJACK MATCH! I like this very much.

Backstage with Randy Orton, he;s asked whats up with him and The Wyatt Family, He says “If you can’t beat them join them”. Weird.

Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Randy Orton make their way to the ring. I don’t get Bray Wyatt, I’ve seen him wrestle plenty, his gimmick is lame and so are his terrible fake dreadlocks. Where is Beefcake when we need him? So Randy Orton is going to fight Luke Harper, apparently this has been brewing for months. Wyatt is at ringside in a rocking chair. They lock up and struggle with each other for control. They do this back and forth, Harper takes a shoulder tackle and powders from the ring. Orton follows, and gets cracked in the ribs by Harper… Harper tosses him back in the ring, and takes control but Orton quickly cuts him off.
Harper get tossed over the top, when he gets back in Orton gives him the DDT. Harper rolls from the ring yet again. Orton chases out of him, gives him  nice backdrop on the barricades, then again on the Spanish announce table, but Harper jumps up and kicks Orton in the face and falls back down. Wyatt gets out of his rocking chair and makes his way over the the action. He picks up Orton and rolls him back into the ring. The count is almost over, but Wyatt throws Harper into the ring as well, just in time.  Oh a mid match commercial break… my least favorite thing! (Hey I am actually liking this match ok?)
We return from break and Harper has Orton in a chokehold in the middle of the ring. Orton works out of it, to only get body slammed. Harper attempts to go to the top, Orton follows him, and gives Harper the superplex off the 2nd rope. Cover by Orton but Harper gets out at the 2 count. More back and forth until Orton powerslams Harper, but again he escapes the pin. Harper gets a michnoku driver on Orton, but Orton kicks out. Orton tried RKO but gets cut off, Harper again almost pins Orton. Harper sets up Orton for some finisher but Orton gets out and gives him the RKO for the 3 count. Wyatt sits and rocks in the chair. Wyatt gets in the ring, helps Harper up. then knocks him out. Poor Luke Harper.

We come back from commercial Renee welcomes Mickie James to the ring. Renee asks Mickie a question, but Mickie starts by talking about her winning the Championship from Trish Stratus, and she is a 5 time champion. Mickie talks about how her accomplishments came way before these women today. That her accomplishments were being buried, but Alexa Bliss was the one person to fight the “Women’s Revolution”. Mickie goes on to talk about how Alexa was the only one to know who she was, and if it wasn’t for her she wouldn’t be standing in the ring right now.  Forget about the revolution this is about Mickie James.  Becky Lynch runs out from the locker room and attacks her but Alexa Bliss runs in from the crowd and attacks Lynch as she chases James.  They then bring Lynch to the ring to further abuse Lynch. Poor Becky. Mickie James grabs the mic again to say something about always being one step ahead.

Returning from the break we are in a store with James Ellsworth and Carmella, shes going to try to get him some clothes… Ellsworth is excited to pick out clothes himself. He comes out wearing acid wash jeans, then a weird sweater, then a lumber jack, then the jeans an a women;s shirt.. sigh. Then Ellsworth Presley, then a pimp, then a red turtleneck. This is ridiculous. Carmella tells him no to all his choices.. She then dresses him like Rob Dyrdek in Gold Lame. eww.

After yet another break we are back, 10 man over the top challenge to get an entry into the match. Don’t expect me to know what is going on here…. The Vaudvillians are out first. then Curt Hawkins, then then, some Victor of Ascension,  then Heath Slater, then Rhyno and Connor. Poor Rhyno. Fandango eliminated by his partner, and Mojo Rawley eliminated Tyler Breeze for the win. Except for Rhyno, and Heath Slater, I have no idea who any of these people are.

Cut to earlier today, an interview with Nikki Bella out by the staging trucks, she gets attacked by Natalya. Yay Nattie kick her ass.

AJ Styles comes to the ring to cut a promo about the Rumble, then John Cena comes to the ring, but AJ refuses to let him speak, then shows a clip from the Today show where John Cena is comparing the match to the super bowl, as its Patriots vs Falcons… A guy from Boston vs A guy from Atlanta. AJ Styles is way madder than I ever remember him. I like him much better this way. He tells Cena no one missed him, crowd starts chanting Cena… Styles said he just didn;t take his space, he replaced him. Ouch. Ok this promo is way too long I don’t care anymore, Cena gets the mic, no idea what he is saying as I am fast forwarding through this… No… Just no. Why can’t we just fight people????

Back from break, Kalisto vs Dolph Ziggler.  Ziggler takes over early in the match but Kalisto cuts him off with his fast paced lucha moves sadly it doesn’t save him from a quick finish. Was that even a 3 count ref? Ziggler talking shit to JBL when Apollo Crews comes out and nails him with a chair. Ha!

The announce team say Natalya is fighting next, but honestly they are some nervy assholes alluding to her state of mental health. Mental health isn’t a joke. I hope Nattie fucks the announcers up more than Nikki Bella at this point.

Back from yet another break, Naomi dances her way to the ring, Natties music hits but instead they cut to Nikki Bella attacking Natalya backstage. Naomi says its not going down like that, shes not leaving until someone steps up to fight her. Alexa Bliss’s music hits, She says shes not out here to answer a challenge from nobody, makes fun of Naomi for not being on tv for 3 months, and asks her who she thinks she is. Naomi, says come down here, she will show her exactly who she is, and that she will be the new champion. Alexa gets on the apron then jumps back down and says Naomi isn’t worth her time. Booo. I hope when Naomi gets her hands on her she kicks her ass.

Time for The Miz vs Dean Ambrose (ICC) for the Intercontinental Championship. Its a lumberjack match so all the other guys on the roster are at ringside, to basically fuck em up,  or throw them back in, either way. The match starts with Ambrose taking lead but it switches up quick. The Miz keeps trying to throw Ambrose to the lumberjacks so he doesn’t have to do the work. Ambrose fights him back, and clotheslines him over the top rope, and the lumberjacks jump him hard, they hate the Miz… and another mid match commercial. WTF. We come back and Miz and Ambrose are on the second rope, nothing good comes of it, and Ambrose ends up getting pulled out of the ring y the lumberjacks, but manages a quick roll up when he gets back int he ring. Ambrose is back outside, thrown back in after a short beating. Miz gets a 2 count. Ambrose is taking a beating, but we seen him come back from worse. Ambrose gets another roll up 2 count on the Miz, Ambrose ends up back outside again, and gives Miz the Lunatic Fringe Elbow from the top, but Miz kicks out. When they both get up Ambrose is fired up he throws the Miz out, and then jumps on him and the limberjacks. Maryse grabs the leg of Ambrose as he tries to get on the ring, and miz gets another 2 count on him. Both men ae down, Ambrose is beat up, takes a couple of big drop kicks from Miz, then dodges the third, Miz to the outside, getting beat by lumberjacks, but Ambrose goes for the elbow on the pile and takes everyone out. Ambrose grabs the Miz, throw him back in the ring, quick in roll up back and forth,  then when Ambrose is about to pin the Miz, the lumberjacks take over the ring beat Ambrose, after the ring is cleared mix tries a quick pin, but it doesn’t work, Ambrose reverses, gives him a finisher, and retains the belt.

Overall it wasn’t bad, just too many commercial breaks. Remember this weekend you can catch the Royal Rumble on the WWE Network!
