The run of Cedric Alexander continues. He was crowned the number one contender topping Gabba Gulak, twice, then went on to score a win in the Miracle on 34th Street Fight. When was the last time Alexander was in a losing match?
And the NEW Raw Tag Team Champions are Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan? Kurt’s illegitimate baby boy has finally weaseled his way into a title reign, and no better way than to do it with someone else’s partner. Jordan is a true dirt bag for side piecing ways. He also was present in the match that lead to the Dean Ambrose beat down only after getting pinned by Seth earlier in the night. JJ, you opportunistic mofo you.
The SmackDown Live Tag Team Title picture continues to be the crown jewel of this series. The addition of the ever hot Rusev Day just made this a three chili entree that only the best can handle. The New Day are going to drop their gems; it’s to be expected. Shelton Benjamin aka Old Jason Jordan is doing the ring work like young fella while his partner is getting his edges sharpened. The World’s Second Greatest Tag Team has earned another title shot after two straight victories. Let’s see if they can break out the Uso Penitentiary.
The women’s royal rumble news sent shock waves through the SmackDown Live women’s roster as well. Naomi announced her intentions to showcase her talents in the first time event just before showing up the women of the Riott Squad in a tag match with Charlotte. She didn’t fair so well in the return match against Ruby the following week as the squad gave her a taste of her BAD days.
Is it time for a Street Profits push? They have announced their goal to put themselves among the other notable teams in NXT.
An Ember Moon title defense is worth your time if you haven’t watched. Sonya Deville had to close the chapter on her beef with the champ, but it was all a set up to throw new challengers into the mix.
The greatest announcement has to be that we will witness a women’s royal rumble match in a few weeks. We even got a “cute” moment with all the women standing shoulder to shoulder to celebrate this announcement. It was back to business on Christmas night with Sasha Banks leading her team to defeat against Absolution.
No one is really ready for Asuka, and that includes Alicia Fox. Sorry to see what the Fox said.
