Black Wrestla’ Recap 12/24

Ring of Honor

I’d guess that all of the talents who were in the building participated in the huge tag match that spanned much of the show. Jay Lethal and Cheeseburger were joined by three other competitors in a Christmas Surprise match that saw Jonathan Gresham on the opposite side. The winning team, Lethal’s, was promised a significant bonus for their reward. 

Raw

Fresh off helping Braun Strowman defeat Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews and friends were recruited to ensure Corbin would not succeed in his bid to redeem himself. What does this mean for Crews? I don’t know; my best guess is that he was near the right room at the right time to be included in this band of merry chaps.

The fresh start initiative paid dividends for our favorite women when Ronda Rousey put her title up for grabs. Just about every woman backstage came to the call. What would follow was a gauntlet match that kicked off with Alicia Fox challenging Bayley. Before it was done, we would see Ember Moon showcased in a mini-contest against Natalya, and Sasha Banks would close the show before tapping to the Sharpshooter.

SmackDown Live

Another fresh start incentive gave us a women’s title match that pitted Naomi against her good friend Asuka. Naomi got the nod from Vince himself as the show kicked off. We wouldn’t get a clean pin for some reason; instead, Naomi would tap to the Asuka Lock.

205 Live

Lio Rush was given a filler match. It served little purpose as of the moment. He slapped his unnamed opponent to start the match and went on to a quick victory.

NXT

A young Aaron Mackey helped create some clips for someone else’s entrance video. He didn’t put up much of a struggle but sold the hell out of those power moves he received.
