: Fandango has a chance to mix with some WWE veterans other than Chris Jericho, instead he just becomes a spectator between the two guys fighting over the Intercontinental Title for way too many months.
The Miz v. Wade Barrett Intercontinental Champion
: The Miz and Wade Barrett’s feud should have fizzled out the night after WrestleMania, it hasn’t; but adding Fandango into the mix should be a nice way to freshen up this feud. Continue Reading
This past Monday on RAW we saw the beginning of what looks like a “Triple H/Concussion” storyline on RAW. We also saw the beginning of what looks to be a significant push for Curtis Axel, the former Michael McGillicutty. By the time the night was over, I think it was pretty clear that neither one of these angles are going to work.
: Why does Brooke Hogan have a job in television again, oh wait. At least John Cena’s girlfriend provides some form of entertainment.
: Brooke being with Bully Ray was less believable than any porn scene, EVER!
: As good as Bully Ray has gotten on the microphone this angle just doesn’t do it for me, at all.
Curt Hawkins vs. Sami Zayn
<- Woah, Curt Hawkins sighting! Interesting side note, Hawkins new ring gear was actually made by a local New York Mets fan-run clothing designer similar to what Barber Shop Window does for wrestling.
<- This is the WWE TV debut for Zayn and I’m interested to see how he works with a guy who’s been working the WWE-style for a long time now.
<- Nice Steamboat-esque armdrags from Zayn.
Hello everyone. I’m back with my second review of WWE Main Event this week!
Alberto del Rio vs Big E Langston
-A rematch from RAW already? Surprised this wasn’t saved for Smackdown. I’m sure Teddy Long must have some kind of tag team match planned instead.
-If you ask me, A.J. Lee has been the most watchable Diva in the WWE since Trish Stratus left. She plays her part as a manager perfectly and she has made the psycho crazy chick gimmick work. And she is good in the ring to top it off. Of course, who doesn’t love her finisher too?
Before last night’s clean sweep of Extreme Rules The Shield was the hottest thing in professional wrestling. Now that every member of The Shield has WWE gold around their waist who or more importantly what is it going to take down a trio of guys who are on their way to becoming the best stable of all time, if the WWE doesn’t screw it up of course. Is there any babyface in the mid card that can match Dean Ambrose‘s intensity? Is there any tag team or two guys that could work together that can stop the brutal force of Roman Reigns or the high-flying ability of Seth Rollins? The members of The Shield and the WWE are in a PERFECT spot to not only capitalize on the moment, but allow these guys to blossom into stars for years and even decades to come.
Jay Lethal vs. Jimmy Jacobs
<- The video quality of this week’s show looks terrific! Except for being able to see the hockey benches & penalty boxes in the background. Although they are in Canada so I guess every arena is a hockey arena.
<- Steve Corino is on commentary for the first time since S.C.U.M. won their tag team match at Border Wars. It’s going to get a little confusing because Corino sounds almost exactly like Kevin Kelly.
<- Jimmy Jacobs pins Lethal clean with his finisher. I’m always so surprised that Jacobs never had a run in TNA or at least WWE development.
