wwetlc2016

Kickoff Show: Apollo Crews, The American Alphas and The Hype Bros vs Curt Hawkins, The Vaudevillians and The Ascension in a 10 Man Tag Team Match

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.

Women’s match announced for No Mercy

Whether you are a member of the Bella Army or fan of The Princess of Staten Island, both parties will be happy to learn that we will see Nikki Bella and Carmella compete at No Mercy.

nbcm

Their feud began at SummerSlam, when Nikki made her return after recovering from a possible career ending neck injury.  Nikki successfully pinned and won the Six Women Tag Team match, which sparked undeniably fury within Carmella.  Since then, Carmella has taken ever opportune moment made available to her to attack and taunt Nikki.  It’s about time these two meet in the squared circle, one on one, to air out their aggression.

Which woman will come out victorious? Tune into No Mercy this Sunday at 8pm only on the WWE Network!

Alicia Fox vs Nia Jax (Kickoff Show)

Winner: Nia Jax

The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods) (c) vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for the Raw Tag Team Championship

Winner: The New Day due to interference by Xavier Woods

TJ Perkins (c) vs Brian Kenderick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Winner: TJ Perkins

TJ held his hand out to Brian Kenderick, who shook it and pulled TJ in for a hug.  What was a sweet moment quickly turned sour as Kenderick hit Perkins with what looked like to be a headbutt.

Cesaro vs Sheamus in the final match in The Best of Seven Series

Winner: No Contest

Cesaro hit Sheamus with a Lariat that sent them both over the ringside barricade.  It appeared that both Sheamus and Cesaro were injured.  After the referee and WWE’s medical team checked on the both of them, the medical staff said Sheamus and Cesaro were not able to compete.

Sami Zayn vs Chris Jericho

Winner: Chis Jericho

Charlotte (c) vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley in a Triple Threat Match for the Raw Women’s Championship

Winner: Charlotte

Rusev (c) (with Lana) vs Roman Reigns for the United States Championship

Winner: Roman Reigns

Kevin Owens (c) vs Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship

Winner: Kevin Owens

So what did you guys think of tonight’s pay-per-view?  I thought it was good.  I would rate it a 7 out of 10 with the Women’s Title Match being the match of the evening.  Charlotte, Sasha and Bayley stole the show without a doubt.  That Women’s match should have been the co-main event it was that good!  No surprise though, the Women’s Division kicks serious ass.

I’m looking forward to Monday Night Raw tomorrow night to see the aftermath for all those who took part in Clash of Champions.  Let me know your thoughts on tonight’s pay-per-view by leaving a comment below!

Clash of Champions 2016 Pay-Per-View Predictions

What better way to continue the celebration of my 31st birthday than with a WWE pay-per-view?!  Last night (which was my birthday), I celebrated by attending a WWE Live event watching the Smackdown Live roster put on a killer show and tonight, I’ll see the Monday Night Raw roster do the same.  Let’s take a look at tonight’s card for Clash of Champions and my predictions on how this show will unfold.

Tag Team title match announced for No Mercy

With the WWE Championship and Smackdown’s Women’s Championship matches already scheduled for No Mercy, another title match was set into place for Smackdown Live’s upcoming pay-per-view.

nomercy

History repeated itself as The Usos met The American Alphas in the squared circle for an opportunity at the Tag Team titles. No smiles, handshakes, or respect were given by any member of each opposing team, as The American Alphas had a score to settle after their last encounter with The Usos.  Although Gable did well for himself in the ring after sustaining a knee injury courtesy of the brotherly duo, Jimmy and Jey focused on inflicting pain on that knee.  It worked and The Usos will once again face Heath Slater and Rhyno at No Mercy for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship.

I think it was too soon for Chad Gable to return to action. Shane McMahon had announced on Talking Smack shortly after Gable was injured that he would be out of action for 2-4 weeks.  Two weeks has certainly passed since then, but after what the WWE Universe witnessed last night, Gable is not ready to compete.  It’s too soon.  He needs to take the full, necessary amount of time to fully recuperate and heal, then come after The Usos and the Tag Team Championship.

 

Stay tuned for more announcements on the No Mercy pay-per-view.

More matches announced for Clash of Champions

Clash of Champions is only six days away and General Manager Mick Foley continues to alter and add to Monday Night Raws first pay-per-view since the brand drafts occurred in July.  Here are the updated matches announced for Clash of Champions as of last night.

Rusev (c) vs Roman Reigns for the United States Championship

romanrusev

These two have been at each other’s throats for over two months now which began weeks prior to SummerSlam.  Rusev and Reigns had a non-title match (and what one hell of a match it was!) on Monday Night Raw days before SummerSlam which Roman picked up the victory, but SummerSlam did not play out the same way for the former WWE Champion.  Due to Rusev sustaining an injury prior to their match at Summerslam officially starting, the title match never occurred.  I was wondering when these two would have a rematch, but with Roman’s name entered into the WWE Universal Championship picture, I thought maybe it was a thing of the past.  I was wrong, as Rusev intervened in Roman’s qualifying match last week on Monday Night Raw, costing him an opportunity at the coveted WWE Universal title.  Mick knew he had to make things right with Roman, so last night on Raw, he scheduled a rematch for Roman Reigns to take on Rusev at Clash of Champions for the United States Championship.

 

Charlotte (c) vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship

womenstriplethreat

Last week on Monday Night Raw, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Dana Brooke competed for the opportunity to take on Charlotte at Clash of Champions for the Women’s Championship.  It looked as if Bayley had it in the bag, until Sasha rolled Bayley up for the pin and to become the #1 Contender.  The Women’s Champion and her protégé Dana Brooke watched that match back and noticed that while Bayley’s shoulders were down, so were Sasha’s.  They addressed this to Mick and Mick decided, unknowingly to Dana Brooke who ignited this idea, that the Women’s match at Clash of Champions will now be a Triple Threat Match.  That’s right; Charlotte will not only face Sasha Bank this Sunday, but Bayley as well for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.

 

Brian Kenderick vs TJ Perkins (c) for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

perkinskendrick

The Cruiserweight Division made its debut last night on Monday Night Raw, with four of the division members competing for an opportunity to face TJ Perkins for the Cruiserweight Championship.  These men consisted of Rich Swann, Gran Metalik, Cedric Alexander and Brian Kenderick.  Although a rematch between Gran Metalik and Perkins would have been amazing, Brian Kenderick defeated these three men in order to compete for the Cruiserweight Championship.  Perkins and Kenderick have never met in the squared circle during the Cruiserweight Classic Tournament, so to see their first encounter at Clash of Champions is going to be so exciting!

 

Nia Jax vs Alicia Fox

niaalicia

Two member of Raw’s Women Division, Nia Jax and Alicia Fox, will be kicking off the pay-per-view this Sunday.  Their feud, although still fairly new, is fierce.  Their only encounter in the ring on last week’s Monday Night Raw was vicious and resulted in Nia bulldozing Alicia through the ringside barricade.  Will the same disasterous fate find Alicia Fox again?  Or will she prevail against the dominant, undefeated force that is Nia Jax?

 This question and more will be answered by tuning into Clash of Champions this Sunday, September 25th at 8pm ET only on the WWE Network!

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!
