The man has weaseled and schemed himself into a title reign, and now it’s time for you to respect Jason Jordan‘s hustle. Even though he’s a tag champ, Jordan is still activating in solo mode. Junior took the opportunity to challenge Cesaro while Sheamus was already at ringside. Seth Rollins came to school the youngster on being part of a team before JJ scored the win.
Stop me if you’ve read this before. Cedric Alexander is on a hot streak. The kid is so hot that he has been asked to share his spotlight with Goldust this week. It would seem that several cruiserweights already had time off TV this week so wee needed someone to fill that slot given that we were not getting the title match we were promised.
It was difficult not to notice how great Brandi Rhodes looked during Wrestle Kingdom in the Tokyo Dome. She gets bonus points for taking some bumps for her man the way so many life partners before her (waiting to see that role reversed) and also when she mentioned that she was the first Black woman to appear at Wrestle Kingdom in the Tokyo Dome AND announce Wrestlemania.
The champs received a worthy challenge this week on SmackDown Live. Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable thought they had made off with the Usos‘ titles only to be thwarted after it was brought to everyone’s attention that illegal participants were involved in the pin. I am sure it’s a test to see how the Universe will react to a World’s Second Greatest Tag Team reign. Their time is coming.
We found out which New Day member could possibly get a singles push with Xavier Woods being entered into the U.S. Title tourney. Aiden English was the obvious pick for the first round opponent, but let’s see how he fairs next week against former WWE Champ, Jinder Mahal.
The Orlando homecoming for Naomi was cute. She got to work over the Riott Squad even though it was set up as some type of revenge. Didn’t she get revenge on them a few weeks ago?
Apollo Crews did the job again. The Titus Worldwide family has grown again with the addition of Dana Brooke, but I can’t help but get a Blacked.com vibe when she’s with the two even though Titus O’Neil is in a suit most of the time they’re together.
One would think the Welcoming Committee would put a dent in the Riott Squad. NOPE. Then Tamina got scooted off the top turnbuckle to get pinned. What kind of Mickey Mouse shit was that?
