The hits keep on coming for Cedric Alexander. He didn’t get the shot in the number one contender’s match, but his utter domination of Noam Dar during 205 Live was what Black wrestling fan dreams are made of.
Those had to be the largest pancakes I’ve seen Tuesday night. Then there was one folded and stuffed in a box of Booty O’s. The New Day, after being named the third team in the tag team triple threat title match, drew the straw of Rusev and Aiden English. Rusev got the win, and his team got added to the tag title math for the Clash.
Ember Moon will defend her title this coming week. Make sure you come back for that news.
The rivalry between Moose and Bobby Lashley is finally over! Dan Lambert got the pin so he should be satisfied with sticking it to pro wrestling, and I am happy that we can stop seeing this trash ass feud.
Young Jason Jordan returned this week being the spoiled child trying to prove to his father how far he can go. He backed Roman Reigns into the corner of accepting a match to shut him up while putting the pause button on Samoa Joe. Jordan worked his knee injury while putting on a small show with Reigns. JJ managed to piss off Joe before it was over. I love the spoiled child angle, no pun intended, but it would be perfected by Kurt Angle putting his foot down.
Great news for Paige is that she got back in the ring. This is the Black Wrestla’ Recap though, and it’s par for the course that someone has to be the victim in this story line. Sasha Banks was that woman. I’m waiting for the five star classic that they can serve up when Sasha is not the overpowered baby face.
The Riot Squad made it known that they were not happy about being left out of the title picture. Their protests caused the SmackDown Women’s Championship match to become a lumber Jill match. This week, it was Tamina facing off against the champ, Charlotte. There was no interference, this time, and Tamina fell by submission with no benefit to her recent character push.
It seems that it’s time to get shuffled to the back of the deck for Alicia Fox. She got served up to Asuka; the last two opponents were not seen after two weeks of matches against the Empress of Tomorrow.
Another victim to the new direction with the women’s card is Nia Jax. She fell into an Enzo Amore backstage segment.
That damn Rich Swann is still looking impressive and getting over on the competition. It was becoming obvious that he was up next for a Cruiserweight Title shot; then there was this weekend’s news. Swann was arrested after a domestic disturbance and subsequently suspended by the WWE. You really had one job Swann, keep your cool and not be a dirt bag.
Velveteen Dream is injured and will be off the air until sometime after TakeOver Philly most likely.
