A ReView From the Rafters: NXT Takeover: R Evolution (12/11/14)

takeover3-review

During the pre-show, Corey Graves announced that due to multiple concussions, doctors have forced him to retire of in-ring competition. But, WWE wants to keep him around, and so Corey Graves is now an announcer in NXT, and as a matter of fact he worked the Takeover event with Rich Brennan and Alex Riley. Kevin Owens vs. CJ Parker - A strong debut for Owens. It took a nasty shot that busted him open, but it just added to the moment. The crowd was way into Owens, and because of it his debut came across as the big deal it should have been. Hard hitting, intense, and impressive. It wasn't very long, and it didn't need to be. I think Kevin Owens has a BIG future in WWE. CJ did get in some offense, so this wasn't a complete squash. Winner: Kevin Owens via pinfall in a little over three … [Read more...]

WWE Smackdown 12/5/14 Spoiler Free Preview: Ryback and Rowan Battle Big Show and Rollins

smackdown-preview

The following is a spoiler free match run down for tonight’s episode of Smackdown, which was taped earlier this week in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Luke Harper vs. Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Title. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd vs. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. The Miz vs. Jey Uso. U.S. Champion Rusev vs. Dean Ambrose. Brie Bella vs. Naomi. Ryback and Erick Rowan vs. Big Show and Seth Rollins. Smith's Sentiment: Looks like a good show on paper, and hopefully it'll be better than RAW was. I'm digging the Harper/Ziggler feud and how Harper keeps defending the championship. I also really like the tag team of Cesaro and Tyson Kidd. I would prefer that Cesaro be pushed as a big time singles star, but since that isn't going to happen I'm not opposed to seeing him back in a tag team (he's … [Read more...]

[UPDATED] WWE RAW 12/1/14 Preview: Cyber Monday Sees The Return of the Anonymous General Manager

RAW Feature Image

Tonight RAW comes to us LIVE from Greenville, South Carolina. It's Cyber Monday, and as revealed at the conclusion of RAW last week, the Anonymous General Manager will be the guest GM this week as WWE plays up the cyber aspect. Fans will be able to vote for matches and stipulations via the WWE App. Which of course means its sounding an awful lot like a bad episode of RAW will be going down tonight. Hopefully not. WWE of course hasn't announced any matches or anything to be voted on yet. They'll be building towards TLC, which so far has two matches announced: Bray Wyatt vs. Dean Ambrose in a TLC match and Kane vs. Ryback in a Chairs match. We'll see if any new matches get announced tonight, and I suspect they will. If WWE announces anything for the show tonight, we'll update this … [Read more...]
