WWE NXT Reviews recaps and reactions

The Boys are Back in Town
Undisputed ERA is back. Finn Bálor is back. (Probably.) And it looks like we have ourselves a WarGames match.
Finn Bálor closed the show, following the killer women’s title match. He cut a promo that put himself over for being the badass he is for fighting Kyle O’Reilly with a broken jaw. But soon he was cut off by Pat McAfee and his posse.
Pat Mac showed off his gift of gab again this week, informing the champ what happened while he was out “sipping steak through a straw.” (Seriously, McAfee has such a way with words.) About how they took out Drake Maverick & Killian Dain. How they took out Breezango. How they took out Undisputed ERA.
But the champ didn’t care. These are mice who got to play while the cat was away. But now Finn is back, and he didn’t come alone.
That was the cue for Adam Cole and company to join the party and give the Kings of NXT what they have coming. It was a satisfying moment given the weeks we’ve endured Pat running his mouth and his boys injuring our faves.
The one mystery that’s left is the status of Finn Bálor. Sure he said “The cat is back” but he never said he’s ready to wrestler. Nor did he fight in the brawl. He very well could be back, but I’m going to need to see something a little more concrete before I’m convinced. I mean he said he has three plates in his face. Can he wrestle with that?
Even if he can’t wrestle just yet, just his presence on the show is important. And it’s great to have Undisputed back in a new role, as the babyfaces instead of the dickhead heels.


This Is Awesome (Clap, Clap, Clapclapclap)
The Women’s title match this week was friggin’ awesome.
That shouldn’t be too surprising given Io Shirai is one of the best in the world. And Rhea is really good in her own right. She was rough around the edges when she came into NXT, but she has grown very fast and consistently puts on great matches. (And not just with established talent. Her match with Raquel González at Halloween Havoc lived up to the hype.)
Even though we shouldn’t have been surprised, this still exceeded expectations. It was physical, but simple. There was a portion where Io was just working over the challenger’s left arm. But it was still wildly entertaining. It wasn’t a bunch of holds in the middle of the ring. It was using that arm to drop Ripley hard onto the apron. Io dished it out and Rhea sold it all.
These women did not hold back. Because there is no holding back in a title match. This was a war. Rhea even used her own blood as war paint at one point. (Very badass.) In the end, Shirai was able to powerbomb Ripley through the announce table. The Nightmare beat the count but the champ was waiting with her patented moonsault to get the job done.
The women shared a hug after the match. That could have just been because they’re both babyfaces and had themselves an excellent match. But I think that Ripley is destined for the main roster soon. That would explain why they kind of rushed getting to this match, ending with a very clean loss. If they had more plans for Rhea, I don’t think this would have been as cut and dry.
If that is the case and she is headed to Mondays or Fridays, she had herself quite the NXT career.


Leon has Entered the Feud
The Cinderella Story continues.
Johnny Gargano, absolutely besides himself after losing the North American title to Leon Ruff last week, demanded his rematch this week. And he was set on taking back his gold.
He attacked Ruff before the bell, showing his determination, and the fact he’s a jerk. But Leon was able to find his moment to land a flurry of offense and try to shock Johnny again. This time, it didn’t work. This time, Leon Ruff needed Damian Priest to retain the title.
Unlike last week, when Priest offered a slight distraction but Ruff really just caught Johnny sleeping, Damian handed the title to Leon this week. When Johnny Gargano delivered One Final Beat, Priest dragged Ruff out of the ring and hit him in the face, forcing referee Drake Wuertz to disqualify Johnny Gargano.
So not only did Gargano fail to win his title back, but it’s his second loss in as many weeks to Ruff.
That was all well and good, but it was actually the backstage segment involving William Regal, Damian Priest, and Leon Ruff where this really heat up. The General Manager wasn’t pleased with Priest, and Damian admitted that maybe he took the joke too far. That’s when Ruff interrupted, incensed that this is a joke to the Archer of Infamy. The champ claimed if he can’t defend the title, he shouldn’t be the champ. Priest apologized, but Ruff slapped him in the face and left.
That response from Leon was pretty much perfect. He knows last week may have been a fluke. But he respects the title too much to be a paper champ. If he’s going to lose, so be it. The slap showed passion and ensured Priest would get the message.
They picked this up later. Priest was headed to the ring for a match again... someone. But Johnny attacked him prior and those two fought. Then Leon inserted himself, again to prove this is as much about him as it is about the two of them. He may have pushed the other two a bit too far and needed to hightail when it looked like they were going to team up against him.
All of this ensures that Ruff isn’t just a tool to tell the story of Priest vs. Gargano. He’s part of this. He’s the champ and he’s getting a chance to show what he’s about. In fact, he told William Regal confidently that he’ll fight both of them. Suddenly, Leon Ruff a player in all this.


WARGAMES
TakeOver: WarGames was officially announced for Dec. 6.
We know Shotzi Blackheart will lead a team against Candice LeRae. Given how pissed Blackheart was after LeRae ran over her tank, there’s plenty of bad blood between these two to warrant both anchoring a team.
Candice, who defeated Kayden Carter with a slight assist from Indie Hartwell earlier in the night, didn’t have a tough time filling the rest of her team.
Hartwell was always a given. Dakota Kai and Raquel González appear to have joined the cause as well.
After Dakota & Raquel lost to Toni Storm & Ember Moon in a fun tag bout, Kai and González joined in on a post-match beat down led by Candice LeRae and Indie Hartwell. That attack likely stems from Candice taking exception to Storm supporting Shotzi after the tank incident. Last week, LeRae cheated to beat Toni and then beat her up, so there’s bad blood in the other direction as well, even prior to this attack.
There are enough issues between the women involved to ensure the pairing doesn’t seem random. Shotzi will still need one more person. Perhaps Io Shirai, who has a long standing feud with Candice LeRae.
This will be a fun WarGames match.


Blindfolded
Cameron Grimes faced Dexter Lumis in a blindfold match this week. During the bout, I realized I’m getting tired of this feud.
This had been a really fun comedy bit with the Haunted House of Terror and the subsequent weeks of Grimes trying to cope with all the zombie trauma. But it feels like this has run its course. This blindfold match didn’t hit and works to prolong something that probably should have ended already.
Grimes stumbled around, accidentally beat up the referee, then both men eventually unmasked and Lumis chased Cameron until the Carolina Caveman escaped through the crowd.
It wasn’t outwardly bad or anything, but this didn’t add anything to the what they’ve been doing and the antics are getting a bit tired. It may be time to transition these men into different feuds.

All The Rest:
- Kushida defeated former Raw Underground star Arturo Ruas in an exhibition. The Kushida push continues and it feels like this was just to keep him winning before the next big thing. Maybe an NXT title shot?

- It looks like rather sudden babyface Tommaso Ciampa’s issue with the conduct of the locker room has led him to Timothy Thatcher. Thatch defeated his ex-student August Grey and was about to beat him up more after the match when the Psycho Killer walked to the ring to stare down Tim. Thatcher retreated, telling the former NXT champ that he has no problem with him.

- Boa told William Regal, who went to his house looking for answers, that “She is coming.” Some more intrigue from this angle. Who is she?

This was a good show, with an incredible main event match followed by a strong closing angle.

WWE Smackdown reviews recaps and reactions


Roman just called Drew his favorite shit.
Legend.
Roman’s absolutely killing, no, murdering… no - slaughtering every promo he cuts on television. And it feels like every single one is better than the next.
Roman told Adam Pearce to step aside so that he could sit at the head of the contract signing table. What a nice touch. That is extreme attention to detail I am here for.
Drew said that he hopes Reigns underestimates him, because he should now prepare for war. Then Roman led the sermon. Roman gave the brutal truth, that Drew is nothing but a secondary champion, a prop, a stand-in. Roman said he’s THE champion, the face of WWE, your tribal chief, and the head of the table. One day, years from now, McIntyre will finally get a chance to be the man, and when he does, he’s gonna look back on these nights and thank him
“You’re the guy they send in when I’m busy.”
Ooof.
He signed the contract and told Drew he’ll always be his favorite #2. (His favorite shit.)
Shooter McReigns huh? That was a really great wrinkle into the story. I mean it would have been absolutely epic if it ended up being Drew picked to face Goldberg at WrestleMania instead of Braun. Calling Drew the secondary champion was disrespectful, and I loved it.
Also, isn’t it quite interesting that the match I’m most looking forward to involving Drew since Lesnar is Roman this Sunday - both Heyman guys?
Well, I think this time around it’s Paul Heyman who’s a Roman Reigns guy. All of this is brilliant. Roman is winning on Sunday, but man I’m still so incredibly excited for this match.


Logic and catchphrases
This is gonna be a quick one.
The promo was atrocious. Asuka quoting superstars of the past and Sasha making Michael Cole say “it’s boss time!” Cringe. Bad.
And then - logic!
Carmella attacked Sasha from behind while she was trying to get a fight out of Asuka before the pay-per-view, and Asuka just… stood there. That made sense! Why would Asuka help her after everything Sasha and Bayley did to both her and her best friend Kairi Sane over the summer?
Totally on Asuka’s side here as much as I love Sasha. Sasha needs the win on Sunday but I have a feeling the win is going to Asuka.


The Rest
Daniel Bryan def. Jey Uso - I really, really appreciated the aggression from both men. Before the match, Bryan said that his daughter was crying when he was in the hospital and he understands there’s an angel and a devil on Uso’s shoulder. The match ruled, with Bryan trying to stomp Jey’s head into the mat and Jey nearly got the win. Bryan got his knees up and blocked Jey’s splash and won with a small package. Really well done from these two. No Roman presence, and I wonder how this loss is going to play out for Jey.
Not to put a damper on things, but Jey is in the men’s Bragging Rights team on Sunday. And he lost. That was a trend on this show.

Murphy def. Seth Rollins - Very well done match between these two as well, and I liked how they showed us that they knew each other and could anticipate what the other would do. We saw that both when Murphy went to superkick Seth on the turnbuckle and Seth kicked him first, and when Seth went for the curb stomp and Murphy moved out of the way and delivered sick sounding knees to Seth’s face. The Mysterio clan were out for this match and Seth took his aggression out on the men, which made me worry a bit that it would continue what is supposed to be finished with them. I think we’ll be okay.

Team tag team champions def. Corbin, Zayn, Ziggler, and Roode - SmackDown before Survivor Series - the one night a year Raw’s and SmackDown’s tag team champions face a group of SmackDown wrestlers and tease dissension! We didn’t need that. There was a bunch of stupidity here. The Raw tag team champions were about to give a title match to a SmackDown tag team. Very... creative and… sensical. (Sarcasm!) However when the tables were turned on New Day, Street Profits came to make the save. Um, where was Big E to make the save for his boys? He was just in the same room with the two men that came down to save them!
That’s because we wouldn’t have gotten a nonsensical 8 man tag team match if E showed up. Sami got pinned by a flying Montez after just being in the match for 12 seconds. Please tell me why this happened when Roode or Ziggler, which neither are on Bragging Rights, could have eaten the pin? Sami is in a Bragging Rights match on Sunday. Corbin is also on the men’s SmackDown team and was a loser here. Losers make up most of the SmackDown side of this upcoming show. Which is Bragging Rights, of course.

Natalya def. Tamina - The Captain and the BOAT are on Team SmackDown. Bayley decided to take the Captain role as Adam Pearce selected her to be on the team, while shoving Natalya and Tamina in a match to qualify. Unfair! Poor Tamina didn’t stand a chance here, because Natalya’s win was heavily telegraphed. So we have Bayley, Bianca, Liv, Ruby, and Natalya vs. Nia, Shayna, Lacey, Peyton, and Lana for Bragging Rights. I’d like to see the SmackDown women take it, but regardless of whether they win or lose, Lana will be the sole survivor for Raw. I would bet my house on it.(I don't have a house)

Otis is on the men’s team - So, Otis who has done pretty much nothing as of late since losing the Money in the Bank briefcase, was selected to be on the men’s Bragging Rights team this Sunday by Adam Pearce. His new… manager?... Chad Gable tried to take credit for it. Don’t take credit for stupid ideas, Chad. Uh... okay! Sure. I mean, Big E was hanging around. I don’t know where after the first three minutes of the show but I’d have rather picked him.

Well, we have our pay-per-view this Sunday and there are a couple of things that are obvious - Survivor Series sucks now and WWE can’t book shit to make it exciting. That’s not exclusively for Survivor Series, though. WWE has the tendency to not book well. While it’s not exclusively for this show, it’s the reason why this show now sucks. BRAND SUPREMACY and all. Bragging rights. Not very compelling.
We have the Undertaker’s farewell, but like, is it really a farewell? Only time will tell. I’m only looking forward to Roman and

WWE Survivor series reviews recaps and reactions


Sometimes the easiest way is the best way.
Many years have passed and many a crowd have lent their live reaction to so many incredible moments. Unfortunately, it’s 2020, and that means nothing is normal and we can’t have nice things.
Undertaker debuted at Survivor Series on November 22, 1990 I'm WWF(VINCE SAID IT I CAN SAY IT NOW) and has been nothing but awe inspiring. I was upset when Roman Reigns beat him and thought he was done, but Saudi kept calling and I wasn’t a fan of him continuing to come out, especially after Goldberg. Sheesh.
It’s fitting that the last match of Undertaker’s career is the epic Boneyard match. That was a fitting way to end it all. I can put away all of the things I disliked and focus on the legendary run this man had. And by the way, the Paul Bearer hologram got the tears going.
Thank you to the man behind this iconic character. You gave this writer a lot of fond memories.


Big fight feel
What a big fight feel this one had.
This was Reigns’ first opponent since returning at SummerSlam that could match his intensity blow for blow. Yes, even more so than Braun.
Reigns was outright mauling McIntyre throughout the match, with some vicious elbows and even pulling McIntyre by his hair. But Drew didn’t back down and launched Roman over his head with such force. Even Roman got the better of him, he still was able to keep fighting.
Roman finally got the Superman punch but Drew was still able to launch Roman again. Drew countered a spear with a submission! Wow that was really cool looking. Roman broke it up but put Drew through the announce desk, speared him through the barricade, and still Drew kicked out at 2.9! Roman speared Drew again and Drew kicked out again.
And then the shenanigans. Drew Claymore kicked Roman into the referee, Jey Uso got involved and Roman locked in the Guillotine after low blowing Drew, and Drew finally fell.
It was the only way this match would end when it did, and Roman knew it. That’s why he embraced Jey on the stage. Jey saved his ass. Or at least saved Roman from having to deal with Drew for another 20 minutes, because he was not giving up for anything.
Best part of this was NO MIZ CASH IN! My heart was in my throat waiting for his music to play. This was one of the best matches in Drew’s championship tenure. He looked great in defeat, too. I wonder how this affects him going forward. Really hope that this leads him to take more serious challengers.


Lana is the best! Lana number one!
A bulk of this was to show us that Nia absolutely loves to bully Lana. In fact, all of team Raw now likes to bully Lana. It’s as if there’s no brand supremacy heels and faces working together stuff existing here.
Lana tagged herself in and the whole team was trying to get her to get out of the ring, even as she was doing fairly well against Natalya. They forced her to tag out and Nia and Shayna made her stand on the steps in their corner. The biggest shock of the match was Bayley getting pinned by Peyton Royce to be the first woman out. Totally did not see that coming.
After that, Raw and SmackDown traded pins so that already made this better than the men’s match, which we’ll discuss next. Lacey Evans hit a really great looking Spanish Fly. Shayna and Nia gelled really well and even helped each other out by stopping SmackDown from interfering in their pins.
And then the final woman for SmackDown was Bianca! And she showed the insane strength she has by picking up Shayna while she was in the Kirifuda Clutch and got to the bottom rope by collapsing onto it. Shayna didn’t let it go and the ref disqualified her. Then Nia tried to keep Bianca from getting back in the ring and both of them were counted out.
The sole survivor - Lana. And that’s exactly how everyone predicted it. Lana celebrated in the ring as Nia was irate on the outside and I was screaming to my computer “RUN! GET OUT OF THERE!” but they just went to commercial. That was a much more entertaining traditional Survivor Series match. Thinking about all of this, I preferred the count out to protect Bianca. She was incredible in this match and I really hope she gets a push.
Did anyone look good after this match? You could argue it really was Bianca’s shining moment on the main roster. It didn’t elevate anyone else in my eyes. We know Lana’s getting her ass beaten by Nia after this because, why wouldn’t she keep bullying her?


Clean sweep
Rollins proclaimed that for the greater good, he needed to be sacrificed. Rollins, representing SmackDown for the first time in his career, just allowed Sheamus to kick his head off and pin him. Brand supremacy! Lee and Otis had themselves a beef on beef moment here. Would have been a really cool Big E moment. Would have preferred that.
Owens was then eliminated after giving everyone Stunners, and Riddle quickly eliminated Corbin. At this point it was 5-2 Raw. Up to this point, SmackDown never went to save one of their men from getting pinned while Raw always took advantage of that.
And then Jey was the last man for the blue brand. Alrighty then. Superkick party commenced, and Jey almost was able to get Styles out, but Jordan interfered on his behalf. And then Keith Lee sent Jey packing for a clean sweep for Raw.
I… don’t know what the point was of that. Rollins’ elimination made the most sense, and you could immediately tell that he was going to be the first out. Lest we forget that Raw was fighting with each other up until last Monday. SmackDown looks really weak after this embarrassing loss. KO and Otis were the freshest going into this, and while they had a few moments (keyword here because that’s quintessential WWE) they fell to a team that all fought with opponents and each other just 6 days ago.
Which one of these SmackDown stars looks credible now, and why should we care? Neither of them, to be honest. And that’s why I’m now okay with Big E not being there. He may be one of the only credible singles dudes on the show.


The Rest

Street Profits def. New Day - Street Profits showed excellent synergy with each other after New Day brought their tweener A-game. Montez Ford was incredible. He caught Kofi after a big dive that could have looked scary, and he got so much air on the frog splash and sold it like death. New Day were playing a bit into their heelish tendencies and I think it really worked here. Before Reigns vs. McIntyre, this was my match of the night. Watch this one, folks.

Sasha Banks def. Asuka - The ferocity from both women was great in this match. You could feel the heat between them from what happened over the summer. There’s no love between these two. Asuka looked like she just pulled it off after a really nasty looking double knee through the ropes, but Sasha just kicked out. They traded pinfalls including a really nice backslide, but Sasha was able to get the best of Asuka. Really nice to finally see Sasha slay this dragon she hadn’t been able to slay in her career, the proper way. There was that one count out victory but eh, wasn’t the best way to do it.

Bobby Lashley def. Sami Zayn - Sami claimed conspiracy, and he got it! The Hurt Business surrounded the ring and really were an intimidating force. MVP took advantage of the referee being caught up with the rest of his crew and tripped Sami and threw him in the ring. Wasn’t a bad match.

Roman and Drew had the match of the damn night, y’all. I’m very interested in seeing the fallout on Raw. Give me a serious, brooding Drew. I want him reflecting on this loss and angry about it. The dud of the show was the men’s Survivor Series match.


Raw won the bragging rights this year, including Miz’s battle royal win on the pre-show.
