If the New Day isn’t writing promos for the competition, I would be surprised. At the same time, I want to give credit to Shelton Benjamin for drafting the words for he and Chad Gable’s entrance because of Chad’s awkward delivery. We were given a quality fatal four-way tag match at Clash of Champions to match. The Usos retained, and every team shined before they did so. It’s not paranoia though.
There’s a villain in Marty Scurll, but he could not out villain Jay Lethal at Final Battle. The two exchanged big spots, and just when you thought you knew what was coming, the opponent pulled a fast one. I won’t spoil moments of the match for you need to see them for yourself. The match ran just over 15 minutes so it’s easy to squeeze in your busy day.
The wave of hype is still rolling strong for Cedric Alexander. He won the second chance match to face Drew Gulak in the number 1 contender’s bout next week. His 205 Live appearance was strictly filler as he defeated Ari Davari with the greatest of ease.
The slow burn of Jason Jordan continues. I can say that his role in Raw has made the build up worth its wild with Corey Graves and Kurt Angle having secret meetings. I would love for this to pay off with Jordan blackmailing Kurt into making all the moves that he’s made thus far even in signing JJ over from SmackDown in a one-way deal. Any way, Jordan cost Dean Ambrose the opportunity to get the Shield sweep when he interfered in Dean’s match with Samoa Joe
Naomi saved Charlotte from a Riott Squad beat down and served as a lumberjack during the title match on Sunday.
It was great to hype Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch as a new tag team. They are the new DIY or the Bar? NAH! They got squashed by the Authors of Pain.
I didn’t see the ROH Television Title elimination match, but the word is that Shane Taylor had an early exit while the defending champ, Kenny King, wasn’t even one of the final two as The Last Real Man Silas Young left as the new TV champ.
