1. Please Stop These “This Is Your Life” Segments The WWE struck gold with The Rock and Mankind during the “This Is Your Life” segment. But every other segment since then has failed. Remember the Alexa Bliss/Bayley segment? How about the Old Day? The Sami Zayn and Bobby Lashley’s sisters segment did absolutely nothing for… Read More WWE RAW 5.21.18: The Three Key Stories w/Justin C, Plus Thoughts On Rumored Smackdown Live TV Deal
After a brief hiatus I’m back to touch base with the happenings in NXT these past couple of weeks. With the recent call ups it looks lik NXT is devoted to creating some new stars, while continuing to keep the most dastardly bastard on earth employed.
1. RAW Has ZERO Compelling Storylines Right Now I really thought RAW would get out of its holding pattern after Backlash. Boy was I wrong. There is exactly one actual storyline going on right now and that is with Jinder Mahal and Roman Reigns, two of the most boring characters currently on the roster. Seth… Read More WWE RAW 5.14.18: The Three Key Stories w/Justin C, Plus Thoughts On Ronda Rousey vs Nia Jax
1. Ruby Riott’s Breakout Week Gets Stalled I thought Ruby Riott had a pretty good week. She beat Sasha Banks on RAW then beat Bayley on the Backlash pre-show. Both matches were standout performances and I was fully expecting Riott to challenge Nia Jax for the Title next. But then they had Ruby Riott… Read More WWE RAW 5.7.18: The Three Key Stories w/Justin C
1. Tonight We Got The Bad Jeff Hardy On this week’s HTCWrestling Podcast I talked about Jeff Hardy getting another WWE Title run in 2018. He’s still completely over with the crowd. But tonight, he laid a complete dud. Jeff looked sloppy all match. The crowd was dead for his match with Orton. I don’t… Read More WWE Backlash 5.6.18: Five Thoughts w/Justin C
1. Seth Rollins Should Be The Man On RAW The crowd reaction to Seth Rollins tonight on RAW was great. The crowd was 100% behind him the second his music hit. His reaction was the same as hometown favorites Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. I know people want Braun to win the Title (I do),… Read More WWE RAW 4.30.18: The Three Key Stories w/Justin C
1. While I Don’t Agree With Some Of The Politics Of The Show, It Was A Cool Atmosphere I get that the WWE is making a lot of money from this show, and that is the reason this is happening. The propaganda video they aired rubbed me the wrong way, because there are still certain… Read More Five Thoughts on the GREATEST ROYAL RUMBLE EVER!!!
We’ve got an alright NXT this week, with a strong opening and a great angle to end the show. Well, the Ciampa/Gargano stuff was great. A possible send off for SAnitY happened and we were made to try and care for a tag team I just don’t care about again.
1. The Brock/Roman Build Once Again Shows The WWE’s Lack Of Direction How lazy was that opening segment tonight? Paul Heyman tried to get the crowd to boo Brock Lesnar again by talking about his new contract and how much money Brock makes, and how desperate the WWE is to have Brock back. Reigns comes… Read More WWE RAW 4.32.18: The Three Key Stories w/Justin C
1. Hopefully That Isn’t The End Of The Sasha/Bayley Feud I was really hoping this match would be an all out brawl. It started like any other basic match. There was a brief minute later on in the match where they both started brawling, and the crowd LOVED it. And then the Riott Squad interfered.… Read More WWE RAW 4.16.18: The Three Key Stories And Superstar Shakeup Thoughts w/Justin C
