We got so much Peak Blackness two weeks ago that I suppose the powers that be decided to down play it as much as possible and give us more of the status quo last week. I ended up watching Impact with hopes of finding more to discuss. How dare I have the audacity of hope.
The highlight of the lackluster week would have to be the fact that Naomi will hang on to her title for another month. Unless, Carmella pulls a cash-in sometime soon, we will feel the glow until Summer Slam.
The Velveteen Dream shows that he can be the egotistical jerk that he should be. I’m with him; that was not the time or place for an interview.
Ember Moon aka Em-bae will be back next week to face Ruby Riot.
Okay now for the mediocre week in wrestling; I’ll start with Cedric Alexander being a part of a victorious tag team on Raw. Since I didn’t watch 205 Live, I’m hoping he put the feud with Alicia Fox to bed so we can get on to bigger and better things.
Xavier Woods got down and dirty with Jey Uso; while neither won us over with their singles abilities, we were able to focus on their ring work as their partners were sent from ringside. Maybe, we can see Woods land that ropewalk elbow to win a mid-card title and still as a member of the New Day.
ACH exhibited some impressive high impact moves to advance in the Super X Cup tournament.
Sasha Banks won via count out at Great Balls of Fire. I figured she was not about to have that moment; Bayley and she then emerged victorious the following night in a tag match versus Alexa and Nia. Atleast they didn’t allow her to be dominated.
Tamina and Naty pulled a fast one on Charlotte even though Snuka didn’t sell the blind tag as she was crouched ready to enter the ring while within sight of Charlotte. So much for the surprising her with the superkick.
Let’s see how to make this quick. I’m already tired of R. Truth and Goldust. Impact really put this Grand Championship match on television just so we can have EC3 blow it up. The match wasn’t that dramatic that we would even consider the idea that it would have a clean finish. We’ll get him in the ring with Moose soon since Carter has moved on from James Storm. I just knew Alberto was going to turn on Bobby Lashley during their match, but they actually pulled off some teamwork to get a win. I still smelled the double cross when LAX had not left ringside. I didn’t think that it would be Lashley doing the crossing. The Street Prophetz are smelling a lot like Crime Time right now. I have faith they will be something better. Please let them be something better.
