Random wrestling thoughts

Recommended Posts

Realistically, I expect a big Braun win or a screwy finish that ends up in a Survivor Series tournament, (oddly enough on the ten year anniversary of the same thing happening at Survivor Series ‘98.).

In the case of the tourney, I see Balor or McIntyre taking it. (Maybe, MAYBE heel Lashley.) But I honestly hope they put the belt on Braun and keep him face.

Is Lesnar/Strowman not already a set match? I gathered that from Heyman's (insanely good) promo.

Its set. But I see a screwy finish leaving the title vacant. Especially if WWE skips Saudi Arabia for obvious reasons.

Slightly related, since the steroid trial, has there been a worse month to be be Vince? 

(Like, The Benoit Thing is close, but Jesus.)

I hate cancer. So many lives lost. Close family members. Hope RR makes a full recovery.

The Ricochet / Dunne match from September 19 was amazing. Did they have a rematch after that?

Thanks to Hulu I think I'm gonna give NXT a try. Is there anyone I should be paying attention to?

I tried to apply this a lot when I did my TEW booking videos, but NXT has always been really good at putting forth the idea that everyone is good at something and that everyone on the card has a purpose.  The weekly show is basic almost to a fault, but it makes the Takeovers that much better since they use simple, logical booking.  I'd almost recommend going back to around the Nakamura era and starting from there, since you'll see the best of a lot of guys that are being wasted on the main roster now, and you'll also get context for all of the current Ciampa/Gargano stuff.

NXT and the Mae Young tournament are literally the only WWE thing I watch anymore.  The rest of my wrestling time is spent on UK and Japanese women's feds, which are amazing.

God, it just kills me to see The Revival and AoP just floundering on the main roster. 

And Sanity. 

And Almas. 

And Roode. 

And Asuka. 

And Ember. 

And Shinsuke.

I'm just glad Linda McMahon is in the Small Business Administration and not the Department of Defense.

Also great to see @D.W. post again.

Okay. I know I’m all pissed off about Crown Jewel, but I finally caught this weeks’ NXT and I gotta give it props. 

The slow burn heel turn they’ve pulled with Gargano is so brilliant. Like the very act of feuding with Ciampa has tarnished his soul.  Just great booking.

It’s been subtly hinted at, but:

 

Look at Gargano’s attire at Brooklyn IV. I thought it was a a cute Finn Balor reference. It’s not. Venom is literally overwhelming the usual red and blue of his Spidey attire. 

He’s being corrupted by fighting Ciampa.

Matt Riddle transitioning a test of strength into a surfboard (I think I have the wrong move) then into an armbar was fucking amazing.

I scrubbed through parts of Crown Jewel, and oh my god, three of the men in the main event cannot walk. Kane, Taker, and HBK looked like hobbled old men as they made their way to the ring. It was sad.

That whole event was awful. It started fine, but from the Universal Title match on, it went to crazy town. What a disaster.

Didn't seem to have the time to watch the Mae Young Classic semi-finals.  Also, had the winners spoiled way before the tournament aired, which always makes my interest go down.

But holy hell, I love Meiko Satomura.  Thought I had never seen her before this tournament, but turns out I had in a Chikara trios tournament.  I need to see more of her kicking people and being awesome.

Totally by chance too! The Smackdown roster are staying at my hotel. I arrived to find the entrance cordoned off and then the next thing I know, I'm having a selfie with Daniel Bryan!
