Winner: Apollo Crews, The American Alphas and The Hype Bros

Heath Slater and Rhyno (c) vs The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton) for the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship

Winner: Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton

Shortly after their victory, Bray Wyatt placed his belt on Luke Harper’s left shoulder.  Randy Orton and Luke Harper stared at each other intensely, as their has been some friction between the two, but Randy showed his respect by placing his belt on Luke’s right shoulder.

Nikki Bella vs Carmella in a No Disqualification Match

Winner: Nikki Bella

After the match, Carmella gets on the mic and tells Nikki that score isn’t even near settled from Survivor Series and that she wasn’t the one who attacked her.  Carmella informed Nikki and the WWE Universe that she knows who did and it was Nikki’s friend, Natalya.

The Miz (with Maryse) (c) vs Dolph Ziggler in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship

Winner: The Miz

The Miz dedicates his victory to Smackdown Live’s General Manager Daniel Bryan.

Kalisto vs Baron Corbin in a Chair Match

Winner: Baron Corbin

Natalya address Carmella’s accusation that she attacked Nikki Bella at Survivor Series as “absurd”.  When asked why Carmella would lie, Natalya replied, obviously annoyed, it is because Carmella is a liar, and walked away.

Becky Lynch (c) vs Alexa Bliss in a Tables Match for the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship

Winner: Alexa Bliss

AJ Styles (c) vs Dean Ambrose in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match for the WWE World Championship

Winner: AJ Styles

James Ellsworth turns heel by pushing the ladder which Dean Ambrose was on top of.

Who else loved this pay-per-view?  I was completely engrossed with all the matches and as the show progressed, the matches got better.  I would rate this pay-per-view a 9 out of 10; although this is one of WWE’s best pay-per-view (if not the best one) this year, the 10 Man Tag Team Match is what prevented this from being a 10/10 rating.  There is no doubt in my eyes that The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship was the best match of the night.  Although we had a Chairs Match, a Tables Match and a Tables, Ladders AND Chairs match, their match was undeniably the most physical.  They pushed their bodies beyond their limit while filled with passion and determination to become or retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship.  Clearly, the better man won.  Congratulations, Miz.  This was truly one of your best matches and certainly a well-deserved victory.

Addressing Absence // TLC 2016 Pay-Per-View Predictions

Before I begin discussing my predictions for tonight’s pay-per-view, I wanted to address my absence for the past two months.  I apologize for not keeping wwebloggingbetty.com updated for this period of time.  When I wasn’t writing, I thought about writing, promoting and networking my blog but most importantly, interacting with each and everyone of you.  The only way to describe my reason for my absence is I get into my own head and I pull myself in different directions.  I knew it would lead me back to blogging, it’s what I am passionate about and love doing.  I intend for this to never happen again and I hope I haven’t lost you as my readers.  You are way too valuable to me, more than you realize.  I apologize for any inconvenience my absence may have caused.

Alright, now let’s move onto tonight’s TLC pay-per-view predictions!

Tag Team Championship Match for Backlash // Chad Gable injured

tagteamtitlesLast night, The WWE Universe witnessed the final matches for the Tag Team Tournament on Smackdown Live.  The winner of each match would move forward to Backlash to compete and possibly become the inaugural Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions!  Unfortunately, the night didn’t go in the direction the American Alphas had intended.

The American Alphas Jason Jordan and Chad Gable kickstarted the Tournament against 2x Tag Team Champions The Usos. The Usos played dirty right from the beginning as they immediately attacked The American Alphas as soon as the bell rang.  The American Alphas bounced back incredibly quickly as they were victorious with what felt like a minute into the match!  As The American Alphas continued their celebration, The Usos shook hands and showing sportsmanship as usual.  What happened next took everyone completely by surprise as one half of The Usos (no clue which one if I am being honest) superkicked Jason Jordan square in the face.  This allowed The Usos to gang up on Chad Gable and focus on injuring his leg, which they were successful.

It was undetermined at that time as to the status of Gable’s injury although Shane McMahon gave us an update on Talking Smack.  Shane reported that Chad Gable’s MCL was injured and is required 2-4 weeks out of action to allow his injury to heal.  Luckily, this injury does not require surgery but it will prevent Gable and Jordan to compete at Backlash this Sunday.  Daniel Bryan made a decision on the spot that The Usos and The Hype Bros will have a match at Backlash to see which team will qualify to the Tag Team Championship match that same night.  Shane agreed and the match has now been implemented into the Backlash pay-per-view.

If no one picked it up, I have the results for the second Tag Team Tournament match held later in the evening. The Hype Bros took of the team of Heath Slater and Rhyno, which they lost.  Heath Slater celebrated their victory as he hugged his wife and all seven of his redheaded children watching in the front row.  The Hype Bros, as already discussed, do have an opportunity to compete in the Tag Team Championship match at Backlash if they are able to defeat The Usos.

 

See who becomes Smackdown Live’s inaugural Tag Team Champions and tune into Backlash this Sunday, September 11th on the WWE Network!
