-In storyline, it is revealed that Fenix is in a relationship with Melissa Santos. But Marty the Moth was creepily watching them from an alley. Creeper.
Cueto Cup First Round: Vinnie Massaro vs Cage
-Cage doesn’t wrestle with his warrior glove on. Why not?
-Vinnie Massaro is your stereotypical Italian bumb. He slaps Cage and Cage has none of it.
-Vinnie gets one hope spot in, but he goes for Cage’s glove so Cage messes him up and gets the win.
After a two week hiatus Justin C and Cam are back with the latest HTCWrestling Podcast! We dive into WWE Money in the Bank and discuss the “controversey” surrounding Carmella’s win and what should happen as a result. We talk about Jinder Mahal’s Title reign and who could end it (Hint:BRRRRRAAAPPADOOOO). We also dive into RAW and talk about the break-up of Enzo and Cass, just how good BRAUN Strowman is, and what is Brock Lesnar’s worth to the WWE at this point. Give us a listen!
Carmella/James Ellsowrth Opening Segment
-Carmella mocked everyone for saying she needed Ellsworth to win the match for her. She said she doesn’t care. Carmella said ever since she was underestimated by being the last pick of the Draft she doesn’t care anymore.
-Carmella said that while everyone was worried about making history, she was concerned about her future.
-Carmella brought up other MITB’s when people helped others win. She then called everyone Internet Trolls for going on Twitter and complaining to Daniel Bryan.
-This is a great promo from Carmella. She doesn’t give a damn about what you people think and she is Ms. Money in the Bank.
Justin C here filling in for Heather tonight on the RAW scene. I’ve done a lot of writing over the last few days, so you are getting a quick five thoughts from me with results at the bottom. Also, if you are reading this, we still want writers to help out in situations like this and to write for our site. So if you are interested, hit us up on Twitter @HTCWrestling!
1. The Hardy Boyz Need To Get BROKEN Soon, Or The Nostalgia Act Will Wear Off
-It was exciting to see Matt and Jeff come back at Wrestlemania. But the excitement is starting to wear off with me. The Hardyz can still go in the ring, but everyone wants to see the Broken gimmick in the WWE. And I really wish they could find a way to work something out with Impact. Personally I think Impact is being petty in all of this. But if there is legal precedent then I guess they have a case. But at some point something needs to change with them. I also didn’t like them kicking out of The Club’s finisher. The Club deserves much better and they have been pushed to the side since Matt and Jeff returned as well.
The HYPE Bros vs The Colons
-Hey, I was actually able to watch the show somewhat on time today. Mojo gets HYPED and stops Epico from tagging in. He then tags in Ryder who takes out both Colons with a dropkick on the outside.
-Before stupid advertisements for your own Network, Primo drop kicked Ryder’s surgically repaired knee.
-The Colons work over Ryder’s leg until he tags in Mojo. Broski Boot then the Hype Ryder for the win.
WINNERS: The Hype Bros
-Dario Cueto is in the back putting together the Cueto Cup Bracket. In comes Pentagon Dark! He wants Black Lotus but Dario says she went back to Hong Kong. Pentagon threatens to break Dario’s arm. But he puts him in the Cueto Cup instead. Pentagon says he will leave Ultima Lucha Tres with Aztec Gold, or he will break Dario’s arm.
First Round Of The Cueto Cup: Mala Suerte vs The Mack
-Mala Suerte is from down the rabbit hole. The way he is dressed for some reason reminds me of Golga from The Oddities.
-It is pretty much obvious they aren’t taking Mala Suerte seriously here. Mack is no selling his chops.
Money in the Bank is this Sunday. And for the first time ever this show is brand exclusive, which still seems a little weird to me. It is also only a five match show. I expect a match with the Fashion Police to be added to the preshow. Or you know, maybe under utilized talent like Luke Harper, Tye Dillinger or American Alpha can get a match?
We meant to preview the show on the podcast this past week, but things come up in life that are beyond our control. So instead you just get Justin C here to preview the show!
I have a bit of a problem. Well, it’s not really a problem as much as it is a change of heart. You see, I am enjoying wrestling too much right now. For the last month or so, every time I sit down to try and write about awful wrestling, I end up finding things I like about it. I tried to watch Slamboree 2000, and you know what? That’s actually kind of a fun show. I started the Wrestling Classic, and the nostalgia wave was too much! However, there is one person that I can always, always count on to make sure I hate pro wrestling. So, let’s watch WAR GAMES: RUSSO’S REVENGE!!!!
WCW Nitro September 4 2000.
New Day and The Fashion Police vs The Usos and The Colons
-New Day comes out with a jazz band from New Orleans. They are interrupted by The Usos and then the Fashion Police. Breeze says the Usos Day One is actually G, for Gross. Then The Colons come out and say something and we go to commercial before the match starts.
-Meanwhile American Alpha is in the back wondering why the fuck they aren’t out here right now.
So this is my second trip into NJPW. I watched Wrestle Kingdom earlier this year and now I want to see Okada/Omega 2 damn it!
Jyushin Thunder Liger, Manabu Nakanishi, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs Tiger Mask, Tiger Mask W, Yugi Nagata and Togi Makabe
-Both Tiger Mask double team Nakanishi early and take him down with some kicks to the chest and a double crossbody for two.
-Kojima takes Tiger Mask W to the chop house in the corner.
