I will take a week like the past one a lot more than not. Granted there was a bit of Blackness on every show I viewed. It can’t always be good (GFW), but improving each week should be goal for all of us.
Alicia Fox is back y’all. They’re still flirting with her temperamental character of a few years back, which is a disappointment when she doesn’t go off on anyone. If anything were to set her off, it would definitely be Emma abandoning her to fend off Sasha Banks and Bayley. Missed opportunity? Off course, it was.
Chad Gable out here trying to be sportsman like with the Hype Bros during the Hell In A Cell pre-show match. Shelton Benjamin has no time for that. Sir Golden Standard made sure to leave the face of the Broski’s on the mat before the main show kicked off. I need them to pay him off for putting in work with the young talent. Put Shelton in the spotlight…SOON.
Jimmy, Jey, Big E, and Xavier put on a damn good show to open Hell In A Cell. Yet again, they set the tone for a pay per view with some great tag team action. The New Day has used this past year to mix up their tandems asserting themselves as a formidable trio in the WWE. The Usos may never split to pursue singles careers, and I’m fine with that. They got their extreme stripes on Sunday night. Enjoy your penitentiary stay.
Cedric Alexander has had enough! Much like anyone who has been told they’re too soft for far too long. Snapping out and whipping Jack Gallagher’s ass right after ambushing Brian Kendrick was something of which moments are made.
Oh, Lio Rush. Sorry for your debut interruption. I would like to you to know that your debut would have not been much to write home about. The Velveteen Dream got the drop on the kid just to tell Aleister Black to say his name.
The ROH Television Title is in the hands of Kenny King, and he’s a fighter. Defeating the Goods this week, King announced his mission to defend the title in every city. Several other fellas were too pleased to know this. I’m interested to see if King has put his foot into his mouth.
Maybe Nia Jax is about to take some time off. She rocked NY Fashion Week and returned this week to put on an impressive showing against Mickie James. She sold power as she was unfazed by a number of James’s best moves. It paid off when she landed a big spot on Nia to seemingly put the match to bed. It was really no surprise that Alexa Bliss got involved causing the DQ win for Mickie.
Jason Jordan made another television appearance, which is more than you can say for any Black wrestla’ at GFW. Points for bringing Jordan in to make the best of an impromptu situation. With Jeff Hardy on the shelf, we needed something to fit the tag team quota for the night. Jordan is a former tag champ after all; sure, this match did nothing for any existing story line. We could create one though.
Somebody at WWE must have seen our response to seeing Elias go over Apollo Crews so they decided to trot out Titus O’Neil. The ambassador for Titus Worldwide has to fare better in the ring than his cohort. Eh, no. TW is going jobber status after bulling big moves negotiating championship matches and such. Still, this does nothing for Elias nor for Titus or Apollo.
Moose traveled to American Top Team to make Bobby Lashley say his name. Remember Moose; power doesn’t travel.
