  1. Wednesday Night Wars: Week Two: AEW Dynamite: Young Bucks vs Private Party: Brilliant match from all angles, Young Bucks showed why they are the best Tag Team in the world (to be honest, when putting them with obscure and new teams like Private Party or maybe Dark Order, the Bucks are clearly much farther ahead in every step), Marc Quen really impressed me and thousands of fans in the arena with his barrage of suicide dives, and Isaiah Cassidy with him playing the role of 2018 Matt Jackson with the back injury. In comparison to NXT, this match was much more exciting (regardless of the stakes) than Breezango vs Forgotten Sons. Darby Allin vs Jimmy Havoc: This match has been getting a lot of criticism due to the fact that it's to determine the first challenger to Chris Jericho's AEW World Championship and it involves two people with terrible win-loss records. But, according to the theory I came up with: While AEW really wants to put up the best TV content, they also want to preserve their big money matches for PPVs, so a TV Title defense would be seen as a rarity for viewers and for AEW roster members that may not have the best win records. Why waste Jericho vs PAC or Jericho vs Moxley on TV? The match itself was really good, initially, Jimmy Havoc and Darby Allin don't necessarily represent fans or support but they manage to suck in the audience with their aura & unique offense and in this case, it resulted in a smooth & memorable match which I definitely recommend over Drew Gulak vs Lio Rush (high stakes singles match). The moments at the end of the NXT match was awesome but other than that I couldn't get into it as well as Havoc vs Allin. Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara vs Hangman Page & Dustin Rhodes: I'll just say it, I preferred Walter vs Kushida. But I can see why this match was put together and the pace it went at, obviously AEW has the star power and they want to utilize it to its fullest extent with guys like Chris Jericho ("Y2J") & Dustin Rhodes ("Goldust"). The match itself felt a bit weird to to me, it's like the pace drastically changed depending on the pairing in the ring but it was a nice main event that settles us into the weekly AEW Dynamite program pace instead of having something crazy or shocking happen at the end of every episode. (Yes, I know there was a big brawl but other than Allin hitting some kind of skateboard Clothesline on Jericho it all went the way you would expect it). Inner Circle & PAC: Looking at it on first sight, a faction led by Chris Jericho with Sammy Guevara for a mercenary, Jake Hager for an enforcer, and LAX for duo-backup seems awesome...the branding is a bit lame (in my opinion). The name, the logo, the vibe, all of it. This should've belonged to someone like Shawn Spears and have Jericho basically create his own Bullet Club and call it Alpha Club or something like that. Even Alpha Circle works ๐Ÿ˜‚. Aside from two marquee matches coming up are Full Gear, it's interesting to see how the male singles division develops into more storylines with guys like Hangman Page and Dustin Rhodes floating around, but PAC did not wait like the others to meaninglessly float around. He took his shot on Kenny Omega (even though PAC beat him), and didn't decide to lay out Jon Moxley next to Omega (for some reason). Most people have been speculating an alliance especially since they are teaming up next week against Omega & Page but i don't think that's the case, I could see them being semi-allies for about a month and then Moxley turns on PAC. Honestly, I thought AEW Dynamite this week was extremely better than last week but in my war of opinions, I think NXT was better with the whole Undisputed Era/Velveteen Dream/Tommaso Ciampa segment clutching it.
  2. Wednesday Night Wars: Week Two: NXT: Drew Gulak vs Lio Rush: I really like the fact that the Cruiserweight Championship is now defended under the NXT banner (due to reasons which have been mentioned everywhere by everyone at this stage ๐Ÿ˜‚). The match was intriguing on paper as Gulak is a proficient technician with an element of power whereas Rush is a proficient high-flyer with an element of striking. Instead of paying attention to the match, I think everyone was just waiting for Rush's dream to come true and finally win a big match and the championship that he has been going after for a long time. Roderick Strong vs Isaiah Scott: This was a really fun match to watch and in a random way showed that Strong & Scott have chemistry against each other with Scott's unique moves & timing and Strong's counters to those unique moves into various variations of Backbreakers. I would definitely recommend this over the AEW counterpart: Jon Moxley vs Shawn Spears (a big singles match), and I hope they get to one day fight again (perhaps for the North American Championship). Walter vs Kushida: A dream match that I didn't know I wanted until Imperium invaded NXT a couple of weeks ago and got confronted by Kushida. I also like that WWE capitalized on the fact that these two are top, undefeated Superstars and put them together before they lost momentum or they suffered an impactful loss. Great chemistry and a match (with a little more time) that could've easily been on a Takeover card. Definitely better than Hangman Page & Dustin Rhodes vs Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara. Undisputed Era, Velveteen Dream, & Tommaso Ciampa: Another awesome promo by Adam Cole as he was accompanied by the rest of Undisputed Era in the ring after Strong vs Swerve established that Undisputed Era are miles ahead of any Superstar in NXT including returning Superstars (and potentially next challengers) Finn Balor and Tommaso Ciampa. The promo was then cut off by Velveteen Dream with a much better promo than last week and of course the shock factor of showing off a photoshopped version of the weird Roderick Strong photo from social media on national TV. But the chaos didn't stop there as Ciampa joined in on the fun and (on his own) intimidated Undisputed Era like a true badass. I like the way Ciampa is being portrayed, while he is technically more of a babyface, he still walks around like the most dangerous device in the entire wrestling world and I can't wait to see how this Cole vs Ciampa rivalry unfolds.

  4. I will try to review the Wednesday Night "Wars" between AEW & NXT every week in pieces. Wednesday Night "Wars": Week One: AEW Dynamite Hangman Page vs PAC: I was interested to see how this match would go because I would assume that AEW would want to establish Page as a top star and also people were expecting Page to defeat PAC whenever they would meet for the first time in AEW after the whole Double Or Nothing situation but instead it seems like they are going all in with PAC by giving him back to back victories over Kenny Omega and Hangman Page. This match (in my mind) seemed to be the response to NXT's mini-matches such as Pete Dunne vs Danny Burch and Johnny Gargano vs Shane Thorne. The match itself was solid with a little bit of added brutality within their strikes, I don't know how AEW want to present the Brutalizer but it kind of puts me off how quickly people just pass out to it. But it makes me happy to see a company use PAC as the main event star that that he should've been two years ago. Riho vs Nyla Rose: Their match was decent with it picking up steam towards the end. I have to say this match had the best near falls this week by a mile, I don't know how but Riho and Rose pulled off so many near falls that made me jump out (more than once) thinking the match was over. One thing I didn't like in particular was the "Superhuman" spot they tried to pull with Riho attempting to lift Rose. Physically speaking, it was near impossible for Riho to pull it off and the result looked horrifying but Riho seemed fine. The belt is tiny!!! There, I said it, I didn't grasp its size until the referee held it up and I was shocked. Also, why was Micheal Nakazawa there? ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was so random ๐Ÿ˜‚ . Especially him getting beaten up ๐Ÿ˜‚. The Elite vs Chris Jericho & LAX: For future reference, I will be calling Santana & Ortiz LAX until they get a new name just because it rolls off. Also, what's up with AEW's officiating, Jericho & LAX should have been disqualified because of Jon Moxley's involvement. I predicted that LAX would Jericho's mystery partners as I could see LAX costing Young Bucks a tournament match (perhaps the finals?) and then facing off at Full Gear so it seemed to make perfect sense. The match itself was a bit short and more of a display of LAX which was a bit disappointing especially in comparison to its NXT counterpart: Undisputed Era vs Street Profits. Jon Moxley & Jake Hager: But I have to point out that AEW had a more brutal flavour to them with PAC looking meaner with the cut below his right eye and the awesome Paradigm Shift from Jon Moxley to Kenny Omega on the glass table. Also, while NXT pulled out two major returns, AEW responded with an OMG Moment and a debut of a two time World Champion (as far as I know), Jake Strong (it seems like he will Ben going with his real life name: Jake Hager in AEW). While the debut was heavily rumored, it was still an awesome sight to see especially in the middle of the sudden alliance of Jericho, LAX, and Sammy Guevara (who was awesome throughout the night). Perhaps forming an Alpha Club... Going into this week, AEW was seen as the up and coming powerhouse but in my opinion the hype made it underwhelming for me. But I have to say that for the first show, AEW have definitely established a spot seemingly going for more quality & match length than quantity of matches. The commentary team was great throughout the night but I thought the camera work was off in too many instances which resulted in missing some key moments of matches. But we have to remember that AEW is still growing and I am looking forward to next week to see whether the new "heel alliance" exists or if it was just a one time thing.
  5. I will be trying to do weekly reviews of NXT and Dynamite in pieces based on what I liked the most. There might be spoilers for the other show therefore any big moments will be analyzed at the end. Wednesday Night "Wars": Week One: NXT Adam Cole vs Matt Riddle: Awesome match, the sequences between these two were brilliant and kept me (and the local audience) hooked & looking out for when the match might suddenly end. I would definitely choose this match over the AEW counterpart: Cody vs Sammy Guevara. Shayna Baszler vs Candice LeRae: Perhaps the most direct counterpart to AEW this week was this match and I have to say that this was another awesome, first-time title match. I was a bit surprised that WWE would pull the trigger on Baszler vs LeRae at this stage considering that I predicted that LeRae would take Baszler's title around WrestleMania weekend. Now, either they allow Baszler and LeRae to evolve and keep them separated from each other, or move on to another challenger that could have better chances at taking Baszler's title. Candice LeRae has majorly stepped up between her match at Takeover: Toronto II against Io Shirai and this match against Shayna Baszler and she is becoming one of my favourites to watch in NXT. Definitely recommend this match over Nyla Rose vs Riho but not by too much. Undisputed Era vs Street Profits: In my opinion, this championship match felt the least exciting for me in comparison to the other two but it was still a cool match to watch and it proves that not all of Tag Team wrestling in WWE is terrible and wasted. In comparison to The Elite vs Jericho & LAX, this match felt a lot more streamlined and focused whereas the AEW main event was a little all over the place. Finn Balor & Tommaso Ciampa: Awesome moments that (from what I've heard) switched people over from Dynamite to NXT. Finn Balor is definitely one of those WWE Superstars that never found their footing on Raw or Smackdown even if he were to hold the Universal Championship for a decent reign so putting him in NXT immediately puts him at the top of a roster in contention for a World Championship. In Tyler Bate terms, if Balor was the Bop then Tommaso Ciampa was the bang to end it all. The way Ciampa's music heat (by being integrated through Undisputed Era's music) was smooth which generated some kind of double pop. Everyone has been talking about Balor & Ciampa but Adam Cole also deserves a lot of credit for the way in which he reacted to both returns. He went into full Adam Cole mode when Balor confronted him with all the trash-talking whereas when Ciampa's music hit, Cole immediately sensed the looming danger of a black cloud over his NXT World Title reign. While many people expected AEW Dynamite to blow the wrestling scene out of the park, I personally enjoyed NXT a lot more this week.
  6. Is it just me that noticed Bobby Fish holding the North American Championship?
  7. Predictions: Karl Fredericks Lance Archer Juice Robinson & Mikey Nicholls Bullet Club (Chase Owens & Jado) Los Ingobernables de Japon (Bushi & Shingo Takagi) Bullet Club (Jay White, Kenta, & Gedo) Guerrillas Of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) Kazuchika Okada, Kota Ibushi, & Hiroshi Tanahashi
  8. Predictions: Taguchi Japan (Ryusuke Taguchi & Roppongi 3K) Hiroshi Tanahashi & Tomoaki Honma Suzuki-Gun (Zack Sabre Jr, Lance Archer, & Taichi) Bullet Club (Jay White, Kenta, & Yujiro Takahashi) Minoru Suzuki El Phantasmo Juice Robinson Kota Ibushi Kazuchika Okada
  9. I would class Sasha Banks' heel turn as a failure if she fails to capture the championship because: 1. She is one of the hottest stars that WWE currently posses from the momentum of her return from her absence. 2. Becky Lynch has defended the title against every legitimate challenger including top stars such as Alexa Bliss, veterans that can easily be slotted into any big matches at any time such as Natalya, and even brought up the game of a rookie in Lacey Evans. 3. I feel like it's the natural progression that the Raw Women's division needs to take past the Smackdown Fox deal.
  10. Not that I'm complaining about the partnership between WWE & Evolve but why can't we get Walter vs Kassius Ohno on NXT UK. Ohno has been racking up wins ever since he made the transition from NXT to NXT UK and just a couple of days ago defeated Sid Scala in WWE's first ever British Rounds match. I guess Ohno is missing a win over a credible opponent but it wouldn't take too much to put Ohno against someone like Travis Banks and defeat him thus facing Walter for the championship.
  11. Looking at the rivalries that are currently ongoing in WWE, we could have four Hell In A Cell matches with Roman Reigns & Daniel Bryan vs Erick Rowan & Harper and Brock Lesnar vs Kofi Kingston in addition to the announced matches. And who knows, according to rumors, Undertaker has a handful of wrestlers he still wants to face so I think this could be a great time to put Undertaker in one last Hell In A Cell match against someone like Drew McIntyre.
  12. And in the red corner, Vince McMahon wants to bury Cedric Alexander...which seems to be the more truthful report based on what happened to Alexander at Clash Of Champions and on Raw.
  13. I think the match matches with the story ๐Ÿ˜‚. They were given the most basic "two mega faces collide" storyline which meant that the bar was set quite low for storytelling spots. Weirdly, that's also what made the match Match Of The Night for me. This card was loaded with major storylines whereas this one did not have much to it, so when the event unraveled, match after match, the storylines propelled the matches and the results whereas with this one, the match needed to prove why it belonged in the main event and it was essentially two world-class athletes fighting for a top prize.
  14. I wasn't a fan of the DQ finish as (in my opinion) they were having the best match of the night (before Seth Rollins vs Braun Strowman). Why couldn't they have had Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks for the championship on Raw to boost ratings, have the DQ finish which was caused by an "out of nowhere" moment & the arena brawl, which would've set up a No DQ type match for Clash Of Champions which would've involved the awesome spots from the brawl. We also could've had Banks cost Charlotte Flair the Smackdown Women's Championship by helping Bayley thus allowing Bayley to retain with added heel heat for both Bayley & Banks which would've led to Bayley helping Banks win the Raw Women's Championship against Becky Lynch which would've given Bayley & Banks more heat which would've led to the hometown hero Charlotte Flair come out, equalize the odds, give Lynch the win, and still give Banks a reason to request a rematch which would've needed to take place inside a structure such as Hell In A Cell. Result: Bayley retains her title, Boss & Hug Connection get mega heat, Charlotte Flair has an excuse to continue her feud, Flair takes a couple of giant steps en route to earning her face turn, Bayley takes a couple of giant steps to cement her heel turn, we get many awesome moments from a trilogy for the Raw Women's Championship thus keeping both competitors strong heading to Survivor Series where the feuds will intertwine again, and then keeping them strong for fresh mini-feuds between Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. Boom! ๐Ÿ‘ŠโœŠ๏ธ
  15. Honestly, I'm just glad that Harper is being used however it could've been set up better for the long-term whereas if we go with the semi-Bludgeon Brothers going forward then I don't see their credibility last past WrestleMania 36. Then again, Erick Rowan said that it isn't over even after he dismantled Roman Reigns and pinned him in the middle of the ring with the help of his top ally throughout his entire career.
