WWE Cruiserweight Classic 2016 7/13/2016 Results and Review - The New Guys


The WWE has started their cruiserweight tournament, and the first episode was up on the network last night. What you got with this edition was a fine showcase of different styles of wrestling, and all competitors well under the weight that you would expect from WWE. As a result, the matches were fun, and definitely worth checking out. With that in mind, take into consideration the results and review of the first episode.

Gran Metalik def. Alejandro Saez (First Round Match)


Saez had some great facial expressions and selling when he was hit by Gran Metalik’s move set. Metalik did his classic lucha libre style while Alejandro Saez had a mix-hybrid style. The two put on a great showcase to start things off, with some classic moves, and some new ones to boot. Gran Metalik won after a nice finishing bomb, and that was that.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

HoHo Lun def. Ariya Daivari (First Round Match)


Daivari is in fact the brother of the other Daivari from the WWE. This match was a clash of styles. HoHo Lun is a high flying, high kicking, kung fu style wrestler, and I loved it. He was fast in ring, and while Daivari put on some nice counters, he just couldn’t deal with the speed.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Cedric Alexander def. Clement Petiot (First Round Match)


This was my low point in the show. Clement Petiot was trained by Lance Storm and he had the same charisma in ring. If I can be serious for a moment. Cedric Alexander is a high flyer that I’ve seen before, and he did put on a good show for the fans, while Clement did well with both hitting back and getting his own moves in place.

Match Rating: 3 out of 5

Kota Ibushi def. Sean Maluta (First Round Match)


The final match was definitely good. Sean Maluta is the cousin of the Usos and Roman Reigns, but his style is a bit difference. Ibushi kept kicking Maluta all over the place, and it was stiff to say the least. Maluta’s counters were crisp, and I thought for sure he had the win with his signature Savat Kick. In the end, it was Ibushi with the last ride powerbomb and pin that won the match.

Match Rating: 4 out of 5

Overall the Cruiserweight Classic has started off great, and it’s good to see WWE embracing smaller guys.

WWE Monday Night Raw 7/11/2016 Results and Review: Week Before The Brand Split


Something wasn’t sitting well in my stomach, but the show goes on. It reminds me of the time Chris Jericho fought Bobby Duncum Jr. and then came out on World War 3, holding his stomach because he was battling the flu. Whatever the case is, here we go, a huge opening for Raw on HULU is upon us, and here we go, a battle royal to start the show.

Darren Young won an Intercontinental Championship Title Shot Battle Royal


This was a fun match to watch, and my pick was NOT Darren Young. This surprised me. He was out there beating down opponents, and the favorites eventually got thrown over the top rope. I loved it. Darren Young wins, shocking the world, and proving that we can make him great again! Bob Backlund showed up and the two celebrated, which was great. The match was fun, standard battle royal, with Darren Young getting the win after The Lone Wolf and Apollo Crews got thrown out.

The Rollins Report Is The Latest Talk Show


What a boring thing to do with wrestlers. Another talk show segment. The Rollins Report was a fake news segment. Lame. This was boring. This did set up a singles match for the title on next week’s show featuring Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Kevin Owens defeated Cesaro


This wasn’t a great match, in fact, it was a lot shorter than I thought it would be. Cesaro lost here, and well that was that.

Rating: 2 out of 5

The Wyatt Family versus The New Day FINAL DELETION Match


Oh wait, it wasn’t Final Deletion? Ok. This was a street fight, and it was ok I guess. It resembled a horror movie, and it was well done. You should check it out. There was no real winner. This should set up a street fight if you ask me.

Rating: 4 out of 5

Enzo and Cass versus The Club Sandwich Boys


The Club Sandwich Boys and Enzo and Cass did well enough here. Nothing crazy, nothing that I would write home about. The guys work well together, and the match broke into bedlam before John Cena ran down for the save and all of them brawled in the ring. The match was thrown out, mind you.

Rating: 2 out of 5

Sasha Banks defeated Dana Brook


Not a great match, fast though, Dana lost this one after the Bank Statement. It was fun enough, just not as grand as I thought it would be. Oh well. In my opinion the women’s division is nothing more than a name change for the divas division, and this match once again proves it.

Shane McMahon was announced the new commissioner of Smackdown. Then Stephanie was awarded Raw. I didn’t care either way. HULU’s edition of Raw was terrible, that’s all I can say.

What a stupid Raw.

WWE Smackdown 7/7/2016 Results and Review - The Countdown To The Draft Begins

Summerslam 2016 Lesnar will Face Orton, and Bury Him Again 

There were pre-taped openings that set up the rest of the show. That was a nice touch, and WWE really did well to push that notion of special match ups. If that’s the way that the show is going to get pushed, I may start enjoying the show a lot more.

WWE Smackdown 7/7/2016 Results and Review


Dean Ambrose was the special guest ring announcer, and introduced Seth Rollins as Scumbag Seth Rollins for his match against Jay Uso.

Seth Rollins defeated Jay Uso


Dean Ambrose kept interrupting the match, which was a good showing, as he was on the mic giving announcements and what not. Jay Uso was putting the boots to Rollins, which is always odd to me. They allow Roman Reigns and others to decimate the tag division, but Seth Rollins struggles to battle Jay Uso? I guess the story is that Dean Ambrose was getting into his head, but still, Rollins wasn’t looking great against Rollins here. No one believed that Jay Uso would pull this one off, as Rollins did get the pedigree for the win. However, it wasn’t a one sided affair, as I stated. I also noticed Rollins was a little lighter than before, and he was favoring his knee at one point. Whatever the case, Rollins wins, Uso loses, and that’s that.

Rating: 3 out of 5


Zack Ryder defeated Sheamus


I did not believe Zack Ryder had a chance, and the majority of the match featured Sheamus pushing huge hits on Ryder. But it was Ryder that got the last laugh on this one, and you know, the finish wasn’t half bad. Ryder got some serious air, slapped his knees and drops an elbow drop of Randy Savage proportions. So with that huge elbow drop, Sheamus gets jobbed out to Zack Ryder.

Rating: 2 out of 5


Becky Lynch never made it to her match, she got blindsided by Natalya, and that was that.

Enzo Amore called out The Club, and the two went around back and forth talking smack, and saying that they were going to beat up John Cena.

Aj styles defeatd Enzo Amore


A really good match occurred here, with some nice back and forth. Enzo didn’t just get buried here, but this short match was telegraphed for Aj Styles to win. What good would it be for Enzo to defeat Aj before he gets the Smackdown title? Just saying. Cass evened the odds, but it was a simple mistake that caused Aj Styles to get the win, and that was the end of this one. Styles Clash, done, and done.

The Miz defeated Kalisto


Kalisto was flipping all over, and Miz seemed to have no counter until the end. One mistake, and boom, Skull Crushing Finale, and the match was done. Not a bad match, not a good match, THE MATCH. I kid. This was entertaining for what it was, even if it was absolutely predictable.

Rating 2 out of 5

Sami Zayn defeated Chris Jericho


This match was one hell of a main event. It started slow, but it moved forward fast through the mid-section. Jericho was able to fight off Zayn a great deal, but it was Zayn that would eventually get the upper hand. He threw Jericho into Kevin Owens, who was at ringside, and then reversed the Walls of Jericho to get the quick 3 count. The big matches on Smackdown are always entertaining, and this wasn’t an exception. Overall great performance, good fight, continuing the story line. Jericho got one last kick on Zayn before Owens jumped in and beat up Zayn. Great main event if you ask me.
