-Dario Cueto is looking pimpin in a tux. He visits Black Lotus. He says Dragon Azteca, not his brother Matanza, is the one who killed her parents. She seems suspicious.
Falls Count Anywhere Match: Cage vs The Mack
-The match starts with Cage attacking The Mack during his entrance, then brawling in the stands. More matches need to start like that. Who needs entrances?
-I’m not the biggest Big Show fan out there, but I can live with that match he had with Dean Ambrose. Ambrose did a good job of selling the match and making it look painful. And Show played his part as the monster well. It was smart to not have Ambrose take a pinfall and as much as I hate saying it, he looked strong in defeat.
WWE® UNVEILS THE ULTIMATE SUMMERSLAM® EXPERIENCE
AT BARCLAYS CENTER
STAMFORD, CT – July 27, 2015 – WWE (NYSE: WWE) and Barclays Center announced today the addition of several fan events to take place at Barclays Center as part of the Ultimate SummerSlam Experience in Brooklyn. Tickets will be available this Saturday, August 1, at noon EST through Ticketmaster.
By this point, anybody reading this post has already heard about and read the transcript of Hulk Hogan’s racist tirade that was recorded from his sex tape. If you have not read it yet, the link to the story is right here: Hulk Hogan Racist Rant.
When I woke up this morning, I had a text from my friend that said “you won’t believe the Hulk Hogan news when you wake up.” Being a wrestling fan, the first thought that popped into my head was that he died. Unfortunately, that is how most wrestling fans are programmed. So I immediately went to my phone to check the news. And for Hulk Hogan, what was coming out might be the next worse thing after death.
-Big Ryck is in Dario Cueto’s office. Cueto says recently they haven’t been seeing “eye to eye.” Cueto gives Ryck the last Aztec medallion. Ryck wants some cash too, so Cueto gives some to him.
-Yes, that was a fun pull apart brawl between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. But here is the thing: No matter what happens at SummerSlam, the result won’t matter in the end. If Taker wins, he gains nothing. Brock still ended his Streak and Taker gains nothing with a win. If Brock wins, Taker just shows up at Mania again next year like nothing happened. It’s a big time match between two part timers that will be average at best. And the end result? The WWE wonders why the ratings get low when they leave because they refuse to push their full time stars as equals to them.
King Barrett Defeats R-Truth
-Please for the love of all things sacred let this be the end of the feud. Barrett needs to move on to something of substance because he is capable of much more. He showed during his time in Nexus that he can be a top player.
