7 Thoughts: NXT Take Over 5.29.14 (Adrian Neville, Tyson Kidd, Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze)

NXT Takeover 2014

 

#1~ I can’t tell you how excited I am that there’s another NXT live, “PPV”-style show on the WWE Network. Three title matches and every match booked has the ability to steal the show. You don’t get that on regular WWE PPVs. The only thing I can relate this to is the old WCW Clash of the Champions shows and I’m damn looking forward to it.

From The Mind Of A Wrestling Wife Logo

Recap: OK so basically last episode the WWE Divas got trashed in Mexico. Next stop the wedding/WrestleMania preparation train…

-Nikki’s brother JJ is a douche. Nikki didn’t do anything to him or even anything that jeopardized her safety and future! She got married and got it annulled when this guy was still enjoying Pokémon!

-Bryan is like no f*n way are you waxing my beard with that shit. It is bad enough you want to change me when you promised that you love me as I am! Grandma has to look at me for only one day she can deal with the moneymaker!

My Thoughts: WWE RAW 5.26.14 (Daniel Bryan, The Shield, Evolution, Rob Van Dam)

#1~ Just what I wanted to see on Memorial Day… coffins. Memorial Day is a day to celebrate those who gave their lives for the United States of America. So celebrate those men and women, don’t just show us pictures of dead soldiers. I’m sorry but that opening rubbed me the wrong way.

#2~ Why was Brad Maddox still Raw General Manager when The Authority are at Raw every, single week?

Imagine If This Is How The WWE Really Fires People

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out to start the show. Steph said she feels great about tonight, because tonight is about choices. She talked about Daniel Bryan making the right choice and that he should surrender the WWE Championship. She said despite Daniel Bryan doing all the right things, his body is a B+ and he can’t physically defend the Title in the ring.

JC’s Top Rope Report: What Are The Best Options For The WWE Title?

JC Top Rope Logo

Everyone expected some type of resolution to the state of the WWE Title this past Monday on RAW. Instead, the WWE did the old “hype a big announcement, only to have the announcement hype up something for next week” trick. I didn’t like how that was handled considering that they made everyone believe all week that a final decision was going to be made. The WWE, however, decided to put it off another week. I guess the reasoning for that is two things: 1. They didn’t want to give the answer away on a pre-taped show. 2. They still didn’t know how long Daniel Bryan would be out for.

8 Thoughts: WWE NXT 5.22.14 (Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Tyson Kidd, Adam Rose)

WWE NXT Logo - 2013

{So I’ll be taking over NXT reports for the foreseeable future. This show & brand has been making waves for awhile now and with their second live special airing next week, there’s no better time to get these “10 Thoughts” up and running. – MJH}

#1 ~ Kicking the show off with Bo Dallas’ “Loser Leaves NXT” match was an interesting choice but I guess a logical choice. Hell, they’ve been advertising his main roster debut for a month so it was pretty obvious how this match was going to go. I’m interested to see how his character plays out on the main roster. (Side Note: Bo Dallas cut a fantastic promo after his loss. I highly recommend checking it out.)

#2 ~ The crowd just had a nice “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” sing-a-long going for a while and it had me thinking; throw away the fact that their brothers but how fun would it be to see the characters of Bo Dallas versus Bray Wyatt? A guy who preaches positivity constantly against a guy who believes the world needs change because it’s broken. That could be a fun feud on a lot of different levels.

DVD Review: WWE’s Greatest Wrestling Factions

WWEs Greatest Factions

 

When you think about a wrestling stable or “faction”, the general consensus is that they really don’t work in wrestling anymore and the golden age of groups like the 4 Horsemen, the nWo and D-Generation X are long gone. But recently factions are coming back in vogue. The Shield, The Wyatt Family & even the partially reunited Evolution have taken over the WWE and have been apart of some of the hottest matches of the last few years. This documentary covers them all! From the Heenan Family to the Oddities and beyond, “WWE’s Greatest Factions” is the perfect choice for someone who loved it when the good guy was outnumbered by the stable of the day.

My Thoughts: WWE Raw 5.19.14 (Bray Wyatt, John Cena, The Shield, Evolution)

WWE Raw 11-13 Header

#1 ~ That was a fantastic way to open RAW. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the WWE “Signature” interrupted before and it just shows how much faith the WWE does have in The Wyatt Family act & particularly Bray Wyatt. Granted the great opening and promo was almost washed away by the “Super-Cena” moment but there’s just no way of getting around things like this with the “John Cena” character.

I Don’t Think Bray Was Ever Hot For Teacher

The Wyatts interrupted the WWE intro. They appeared in the ring with Bray singing “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands.” (Sorry I got interrupted by someone ringing my door bell so I missed a couple minutes of the promo.) When I returned Bray was talking about some teacher that said he knew he was evil. He said somewhere that teacher is rotting in a retirement home and he is the man of a 1000 Truths. He said his ends justify his means but the teacher lady was right, he is evil. He is the necessary evil that balances everything out in this world. He said he is hope that people get behind. He said at Payback he will be the last man standing. But tonight Luke Harper will put John Cena down. Cena’s music hit so Rowan and Harper went to stop him on the ramp. But Cena came through the crowd and hit the AA on Bray then escaped.
