The Bar sought a rematch with Titus Worldwide because last week had to be a fluke, right? Sheamus and Cesaro had their hands full once again as the Worldwide Brothers were no easy work. And just when you thought it was going to go one way, here comes good old Jason Jordan to run interference helping Titus and Apollo score another win.
Jason made his way back onto the scene before the night was done. He worked the ring side while Seth Rollins took on Finn Balor. That means the one, Jason Jordan, had to run aid versus the two, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. JJ caused enough of a distraction for Rollins to reach back and pull out the curb stomp for the win.
The run of Cedric Alexander is great, but at this point call me when he’s over. He’s only playing the role of being Enzo’s biggest foil and headache to the Zo Train. This week, he conquered Tony Nese…again.
Enzo has also been rubbing off on Nia Jax. Nia losing a match means nothing at this point as she is no longer an undefeated force, but Asuka’s streak has been a focus. Call in the injury work; Nia injures her leg and can’t go on. Everybody wins.
The United States Championship did not get less booty (although it did become glorious) once Xavier Woods took the “L” from Jinder “Maha”. Will WWE give one, or all, the New Day members a singles title?
There was a 6-woman tag match that featured Naomi. I don’t even remember anything else from the match; my bad.
Will this be their year? The Street Profits claimed a mission for 2018 then followed it up with a number one contenders’ match. It wasn’t built to sell them as formidable opponents for the Authors of Pain. Then again, it felt like one of those “they just aren’t ready yet” matches. I am withholding judgment on this one.
It’s time for Impact Wrestling to put some time into the character that is the Cardiac Kid, Dezmond Xavier. It wasn’t until this week that gained a full understanding of the hearts in his entrance video. The guy’s ring work is five-star worthy, and if you don’t believe me, go check out his dive over the top rope AND barrier into the audience area. The quick moves and counters are everything the WWE’s cruiserweight division is missing at at the same time not enough to carry the persona. I have to ask who is Dezomond Xavier, and why is he here?
How fast did Sasha Banks lose to Sonya Deville? Anytime a headliner loses like that it’s head shaking.
