It took two victories on Raw and a Jason Jordan injury for Titus Worldwide to get a tag title shot. The powers that be could have easily pushed the duo to the back, even with the injury, but they saw to give these guys some face time. It’s not always about getting over as much as giving some a chance.
The growth of a young Chad Gable continues, but his partner, Shelton Benjamin, is so disrespectful. Benjamin talked down the eventual foes and victims of Breezango.
Thank you Impact Wrestling for adding some color to the Knock Outs Division. Kiera Hogan debuted in a match against the KO Champ Laura Van Ness. Oh and she scored a pin for the win! The icing on the cake is that Hogan gets a title shot on the next episode of Impact Wrestling.
Who is this new ref Impact has hired? My man came to work rockin’ the braids with green tips. I’ve got to say he’s no Earl Hebner fa’ sho.
The hit man’s job is never done; consider that a fact when the victims come back for their retribution. All is true of Shane Taylor when Marty Scurll wanted a bit of get back from that hit a few weeks ago. Taylor’s strength put Scurll to the test, but villainous ways are somehow too much to handle for Taylor. How the ref didn’t see that powder residue though?
Sasha Banks has been living in this section. For the life of me, I try to think of ways that she can be promoted beyond the current booking. She did put on an impressive showing in her match with Asuka; although, it seems that she crashed and burned during one dive. Putting folks over only works when the one doing so is not constantly taking falls to the competition. Cena has 16 title reigns and still scores wins to keep him credible. Sasha’s last big win has been some time ago.
The next member of the New Day to be featured for a single’s title shot is Kofi Kingston. It wasn’t a bad look, to be honest. There is not much going on for the trio in the tag division; so when opportunity presents itself, seize it. I’m patiently waiting for the single’s title for the New Day to be that of the World Heavyweight Title.
There was a teaser for the Usos facing the Bludgeon Brothers following the twins putting the division on notice. I don’t know how I feel about that feud if it was to happen.
If Cedric Alexander doesn’t win this Cruiserweight Title at Wrestlemania, I don’t care about any of the build that has happened so far. None at all.
Dan Lambert and American Top Team story is done, and the Bobby Lashley farewell tour has kicked off. Bob took on a very talkative KM in a weird match up. If leaving gives Lashley the push he deserves, then I’m all for him making the jump.
It would seem that Moose is being worked into the Heavyweight Title picture. He tagged with Johnny Impact to face off with Alberto El Patron and EC3. Since the Ass Kickin’ Machine is leaving as well, it’s pretty safe to say that Moose is one of the few left to be a title contender. They even gave Moose the spot.
The Ealy Brothers have returned! They’re still jobbing.
