Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
Very curious what happens with Kofi Kingston Sunday. It seems obvious that he'll win, but it was obvious Roman Reigns would beat Brock Lesnar last year at Wrestlemania, and that didn't happen. And Roman Reigns was the chosen one. Kofi Kingston was never meant to be here. It would be easy to have Big E or Xavier Woods (or both?) turn on Kofi this Sunday and cost him the match out of jealousy for his opportunity. Of course it would be smart to have that happen after he wins the title, but considering the match will likely take place in the first half of the night, he may not end up winning.

What seems obvious in WWE is never a guarantee. We've learned that time and time again.

WWE must know what a PR disaster it will be if Kofi loses.

If there’s a surprise upset by a heel it will be Charlotte.

Charlotte winning in the main event would pretty much kill off Becky. All this buildup, everything, has been leading to Wrestlemania. I would have went so far as to say the match should have had elimination rules, so two people would have to be pinned or made to submit. I don't like that Ronda can escape her first genuine loss. Leaving her unbeatable isn't necessarily a good thing.

I'm not saying I think Kofi will lose. But. With WWE's thinking, having Big E turn on him and cost him the match will transfer the heat of the loss off WWE and onto Big E. Cause booing means the heel thing is working, right?! That's the WWE way!

But it would kill the crowd's momentum for the night, especially if it's in the first half of the show.

A "fan" rushed the ring and tackled Bret Hart and Natalya at the HOF tonight. Travis Brown (Rousey's husband) looked like he got in several good blows in on the guy, as did Davey Boy Smith , but Dash Wilder's punch to the guy as they were taking him away was awesome. And luckily for the jerk, Strowman was blocked from reaching him.

The superstars all reacted quickly to the situation, but maybe some security closer to the ring is needed if they have the HOF in the ring again in the future.

Also, NXT Takeover: New York was amazing. Two easy match of the year contenders (Dunne/Walter and Gargano/Cole) for the year already.

And that's not all the crazy happening in the wrestling world tonight!

While it could have been a work (the cameras did cut away though and commentary ignored them...), Enzo and Cass (yes, them...) jumped the barricade at G1 tonight (which has also been great) at MSG and got their asses beat by the Briscoes, Bully (Bubba Ray) who was at ringside, and some security. It all occurred off camera... There's fan footage all over social media.

The only odd thing is that while security was there in force, they didn't intervene very well (but did keep the fans back), suggesting a possible work? But it's pro-wrestling...I could see security just thinking it was part of the show, maybe? Plus it's Enzo, who has a history. Who knows right now.

Now don't go jumping the barricade and attacking anyone at WrestleMania tomorrow night, Flava'd!!!

I'm not sure there is a more disastrously horrible run for a surefire hot gimmick than Enzo and Cass. I always wondered why WWE didn't put the titles on them, but I have to give WWE the benefit of the doubt and assume they had massive egos and were a giant pain in the ass thinking they were future (and current) stars. No one will ever care about either one of them again. Big Cass will be wrestling indie shows in ten years with a beer belly and shaved head, and who knows what bullshit Enzo will be trying to push. Guess that music career didn't work out for him.

I want to write a big prediction post for Wrestlemania tonight, but I really don't care about more than half of the match outcomes. I've written all I want to write about it. My last wish for Becky Lynch, besides winning, is that they paid the rights to sample The Man Comes Around for her to come out to, like they did with Johnny Cash's Ain't No Grave for Undertaker a few years ago.

Certainly a big way to begin WrestleMania this year. Hopefully Lesnar loses, but I wouldn't bet on it.

The massive entrance screen is cool, but it's a rather boring stage this year overall. Could have put the WrestleMania logo lined above it or something.

Not really a match, but who cares! Please let this be it, and not randomly have Lesnar get ahold of it again (at least for the next several, several years). I could also see some ridiculous scenario of Kofi winning the WWE title tonight, and then Vince having him defend it immediately afterwards versus Lesnar. :wacko:

The announce tables are tough as HELL tonight. Surely some of the spots were meant to break them... Even the back-body drop off the stairs by Triple H to Batista didn't break one! Good thing Shane didn't do his usual top rope spot onto one tonight, otherwise he probably would have injured himself.

Joe and Mysterio was lame. It looks like the show is on track to run after midnight, so I guess it was the only valid match to shorten. I expect Demon Balor to squash Lashley in equal fashion for time purposes later as well.

Glad the Iconics one, but kinda hoped for Sasha/Bayley to retain to keep the belts a bit more...credible.

Kofi winning was great. I was honestly expecting a swerve with Xavier and Big E turning on him (the present reveal before the match was suspicious), but thankfully they didn't.

The Doctor of Thuganomics was a nice segment. Biggest pop Cena has received this decade.

Triple H and Batista was surprisingly solid. A bit sloppy, and it only worked given the No-Holds-Barred stipulation, but it was entertaining enough. Batista almost falling on his face TWICE while entering the ring was funny.

Baron Corbin beat Angle, fairly... I mean, it's common to go out on your back, but against Corbin...?

Very bizarre.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
Solid main event, but it suffered from an anti-climatic finish and should have been longer... It oddly felt like they were rushing, moving from spot-to-spot with little/no time between moves.

Charlotte didn't have the elevation needed to break the table (again with the tables...), and then the ref (it seems) sort of botched the roll-up count on Rousey. Maybe they should have just teamed up to counter Charlotte's moonsault with a double-powerbomb through the table instead. But as for the botch count, the ref should have stopped and restarted, but it's just one of those difficult moments.

Overall, a pretty good Mania this year, but besides the Kofi victory, it was pretty forgetful and no great matches.

Hope you enjoyed your first Mania, Flava'd!

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
I did it was awesome! For the first hour or so it is the greatest thing ever, then you feel kind of exhausted for the rest of the night, but luckily we had some great main events to bring us back up. The Kofi match was spectacular and is instantly a legendary Wrestlemania moment. Becky too, even though it came out of nowhere. They didn’t troll us on the big matches and while that should be the obvious thing to do, we know the last 4 years have been a little spiteful on both sides.

Some live notes:

The crowd was completely distracted by the lights for the first half if the Randy Orton match. They were shining so bright that some sections couldn’t even see the ring. I guess I was lucky it didn’t affect ours much, but when they moved it around you could relate. It was very annoying.

The worst match of the night was Roman. Nobody was cheering or booing him (I tried and got shut down) and the match itself was mostly rest holds. Crowd was much more interested in the guys who were trying to start a wave.

Demon Balor entrance is just as cool as you’d expect. Sick powerbomb too.

We all loved the cameos from the legends. The shifting cast of guest commentators was a great idea. Also everyone had a good laugh at Hogan making fun of himself for getting arena names wrong and then proceding to call it Metlife Center.

We also had a good laugh at Triptista. We did not laugh at the match being 25 minutes, but again the addition of Michaels and Flair kept the crowd into it.

Mr Miz might have been the third most popular person there. And Shane restarting his entrance twice was funny.

Corbin .. meh. We didn’t really care at the point though.

I was directly under the helicopters when they first came in. Very cool.

Ricochet is a future Mania main eventer.

Will add more later! My live review - A+ even with the ridiculous length and a few weak matches (though only one outright terrible one). So much fun and its an experience I’ll never forget.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
Sounds like an amazing time, glad you experienced it! The run time must be a killer, which I think of course posed a detriment to the main event.

The main event ended as it should have: Becky beating Ronda. If she had beaten Charlotte, it would have felt cheaper. I'm not a fan of the way she was pinned, because I really hope it doesn't set up an angle where the tape review says she wasn't pinned, etc etc. We don't need this to be more convoluted. I understand not wanting to have Ronda tap out or even technically lose clearly and cleanly, but I don't want the main event of Wrestlemania to be questioned tonight on RAW.

The matches are built to fail on Wrestlemania, with the insane run time and overstuffed card. No one gets a great chance to shine unfortunately, but the wins were awesome. Rollins, The Iiconics, Kofi and Becky. Can't complain about WWE getting the wins right for once. I wonder how long before they fuck it all up again. Smackdown tomorrow night, or will they go for the gusto and fuck everything up tonight?

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
Was the crowd dead for Smackdown or was the sound level off? I would have said they were exhausted by almost a full day of wrestling content since Friday, but the chant during Becky's promo sounded super muted even though most seemed to be chanting "Becky 2 Belts". The opening with Kofi sounded dead too, which didn't seem right.

I'll have lots of thoughts about Mania through Smackdown, but RAW and Smackdown felt off compared to previous years with all the NXT debuts. And was The Undertaker segment meant for Wrestlemania? That was such an odd choice to keep him off Wrestlemania for the first time in years and have him on the RAW After Mania.

Yeah Raw and Smackdown were basically just normal episodes with the exception of The Undertaker surprise.

The Superstar Shake-up feels antiquated in the New New Era where wrestlers hop shows at will. I guess it matters for the house shows though.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
So my thoughts have cooled a bit, probably because it felt like the week was a bit anti-climactic after Wrestlemania, but here are some thoughts:

-Becky Lynch's nearly 8-month journey was fulfilled at Wrestlemania. You can say the run time left everyone exhausted or that the ending was rushed or that Charlotte was an unnecessary addition, but at the end of the day, Becky Lynch won in the main-event of Wrestlemania and became only the second person to walk out of Mania with two major titles (Triple H was the first, obv). WWE did their unintentional best to cool Becky in the last two months, but thankfully she did well enough on her own.

I'll even go as far as to say the ending was perfect. Ronda could have went on both shoulders better, yes, but as always, Becky completely saved the rollup victory with sound storyline logic: in an interview after, she said she beat the fighter, Ronda, who had called down wrestling, with a classic wrestling move we see in pretty much every match. A roll-up attempt. Should a Mania main-event end with a roll-up? That's up for debate. But for the storyline they did, it kind of was perfect. The fighter was beaten with a wrestling move.

But now comes the hard part. The social media era moves on so fast from people. It's imperative that they continue to build Becky Lynch in the right way if they want to keep her a star. She can only do so much, but they need to give her the proper storylines. Lacey Evans is kind of an interesting feud, but... as always, Becky has a better idea. On her Twitter, she called out Sasha Banks for a fight. So do it. Build off Sasha's frustrations. You can keep going with Lacey, Becky is Becky 2 Belts after all. But have her feud with Sasha too.

-Speaking of, I don't blame Sasha Banks for being frustrated. In a different timeline where The Man doesn't come around, Sasha could have easily headlined Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, there are so many deserving women of that moment. And I'm not saying that's the reason for her disappointment, but I imagine it's hard to see women headline the biggest event in all of professional wrestling and not be a part of it. She's one of WWE's lost causes right now, but I hope they come around and realize they have another woman who deserves a push. Her and Becky could honestly feud through the summer, if done properly. Turn Sasha heel, make her a true heel.

-So many men and women clock countless hours in wrestling, especially in WWE, but never ever make it. They live out their post-wrestling days as whispers of conversation. "Oh remember this guy? Or this woman? They had a few good matches, but never did make it to the top". Kofi Kingston, I believe, was destined for that. That guy that they made Jamaican in his debut. That guy who had some incredible Royal Rumble moments. That guy that was a part of a great, fun stable called The New Day. It's incredibly inspiring to see him hold the WWE Championship. Even if he is a short-term champion, he had that moment and no one can take it from him. It was special to watch.

I've seen people say it was one of the best matches in a long time, and in a storyline point of view, I'd agree. I don't think the match was technically a top 5 match for this decade, just my opinion. But being on the edge of your seat, rooting for Kofi, that made it special.

-Hot take on Lars Sullivan: I don't care about another destructive big guy, plowing through the lower-to-mid card roster. Just throw him with Braun Strowman already and be done with it. I'm sure he's talented, but I'm just not feeling it. This is one of those wrestling cliches that's been done to death and I'd be fine if they didn't rely on it so often. The impending 30-second squash matches, the handicap matches, the feuds with C-players. I don't need it.

-I have to say WWE knows how to cut excitement down, right to the bone. Take an incredibly fun, Champion vs. Champion match on RAW and turn it into Seth and Kofi vs. The Bar. They didn't even need the winner takes all thing, just have them wrestle for fun. It would have been really cool to see.

-I love The Iiconics. So glad they have the tag titles, they deserve them. I don't have a lot to add, but keep them as heels and let them do their thing. Elias is proof positive that some gimmicks work best from a heel.

-I was prepared to talk about the first Wrestlemania without Undertaker in years, but does it count if he was on the RAW After Mania? What an odd choice. I feel like that was a last minute thing, like Undertaker was meant to interrupt Elias on the big show and Cena was meant for Kurt Angle. Outside of the nostalgia factor, Cena showed his age as The Dr. of Thuganomics.

Forgot to comment on Sami Zayn's return. This would feel fun and fresh... if it hadn't also been done to death recently. Daniel Bryan and Dean Ambrose have done the exact same gimmick but from different angles. Bryan made it work very well, Ambrose... not so much. I think it's an interesting idea for Zayn, but I don't think it'll lead to anything substantial. He needs WWE behind him, and unless something has changed, WWE has no use for him or Kevin Owens. Unfortunately.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
I don't know anything about the War Raiders, but it convinces me of something I never realized before: Vince HATES someone succeeding without his help (I'm making an assumption here, and a fairly believable assumption since NXT seems to always get huge praise). So the fact that Triple H and those behind the scenes at NXT are creating stars and 5-star matches probably eats at him. It's why he so often changes people's personas, names or just kills every last shred of momentum people have coming from NXT.

Name one wrestler that has become a star out of NXT in the last three or four years. Shinsuke, Andrade, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Asuka, Finn Balor. They should all be main-event players, but the best they can muster is some midcard championships and maybe a brief flirtation with the top spot, despite coming out of NXT a star.

I’d say these three have risen above their card placement in NXT. A short list compared to those who haven’t sustained their momentum.

It’s not like they all have been bereft of opportunities though.

A bit surprised Reigns is on Smackdown now. I was actually expecting it once Styles showed up on Raw, and Reigns was the only main event name to trade over in exchange, it's just that Reigns always seemed like one of those guys who'd remain on Raw.

Hopefully the inevitable Rollins/Styles feud actually delivers as it should, though, because nearly all of Styles' high-profile feuds (Nakamura, Owens, Joe) have fallen flat. Unless the two of them simply have no chemistry together, they should be capable of a 5-star match at SummerSlam.
