Extreme Rules Pre-Show

WeeLC Match

Hornswoggle vs. El Torito

It is know time for our WeeLC match, and before anyone is introduced we have some special people out there. We have a midget referee and a midget ring announcer! Along with our new ref and announcer we have a new announce team! joining JBl, Cole and The King on commentary tonight is Micro Cole, JBElf and Jerry “The King” Smaller! Out first is Los Matadores and El Torito, after they come out Three Man Band and Hornswoggle make their way to the ring. The bell rings and the two begin to swing at each other! Torito gets in control by taking Swoggle down with a Hurricarana, and shortly after we are treated with a commercial break, but once we are back we see The Matadores and 3MB trading blows, but the band is able to take them out, and Torito was all by himself as Swoggle began to beat down on him! We saw Swoggle call the shots as he had 3MB set up a Mini Table and ladder! He also had Heath Slater hold Torito still has he swung at him with the mini steel chair, but Torito ducked and the chair connected with Slater’s gut and sent him off the apron into a bunch of tables! McIntyre and Mahal forced Torito to the top of the ladder, as Hornswoggle looked to toss him off the mini ladder through the mini tables, but Los Matadores got back up and lifted Jinder up onto their shoulders as Torito smashed Swoggle’s face into the ladder and jumped over him onto Jinder and took him, Mahal, and Los Matadores down. All 4 men went through table and ladders! Hornswoggle was not down with Torito as he had Drew pick him up and put him on a regular table. He than demanded McIntyre the jump to the outside onto Torito. As Drew jumped over the ropes, Torito moved out of the way and Drew went through the table by himself. Torito than grabbed a mini steel chair and went to hit Slater, but accidentally hit Hornswoggle! He tan unfolded the chair and slammed Slater’s face into it! To end the match El Torito did a springboard leap of the ring ropes, onto Hornswoggle sending him through a mini table to pick on the win!

Winner – El Torito

Rating – 6\10: A lot of people were not looking forward to this match, but I actually was! I looked at it as something different. Down in Mexico where El Torito hails from, midget wrestling is actually a pretty big thing down there, and El Torito was one of the most popular stars! Maybe WWE can have their own midget division, or maybe not! Despite the fact that Torito and Hornswoggle put on an entertaining match, the WWE still made a joke out of it! and while it was amusing! I do not want a Midget Division, if its always going to be a joke! I do think it was a clever idea to get Los Matadores and 3MB involved in the match as well! I really enjoyed this match, and hope maybe we get to see more of this from the WWE!

Extreme Rules!

Rob Van Dam vs. Cesaro W/Paul Heyman vs. Jack Swagger W/Zeb Colter

We open up the official show with an Elimination Triple Threat Match! At Wrestlemania 30 Cesaro won the Andre the Giant Battle Royal and ended his partner ship with Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. The night after Mania Cesaro, was no longer a Zeb Colter guy, he became a Paul Heyman guy!  All three of these superstars were involved in the tournament for the Number One Contendership for the Intercontinental Championship! Van Dam beat Cesaro in the tourney and declined an offer from Zeb Colter. Swagger and Cesaro cost Van Dam his match against Wade Barrett in the Intercontinental Title Tourney! And now the three finally get their hands on each other! First out was Van Dam to a nice crowd reaction and than was Swagger and Colter and finally Heyman! Heyman speaks on the mic before he introduces Cesaro! Heyman speaks how WWE got it right and had one night dedicated to Extreme! The crowd begins to chant ECW at Heyman, Heyman began to talk about how glad he is that he will always be remembered, and as it seemed like he was going to say ECW, he quickly turns it around by saying he will always be remembered for Brock Lesnar, his client ending The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania, he tan introduces Cesaro and the two head down to the ring together. Of course this being a triple threat match it means all three men will be in the ring at the same time. It appeared that The former Real Americans were going to work together early on against Van Dam, but RVD being the more experienced of the two was able to stay in control of the match despite the early team up. Swagger and Cesaro finally started to take it to Van Dam together, but that did not last to long as the former partners took it to each other! We saw all three men hit each other with many hard hitting moves. At one point Van Dam hit Cesaro with a sunset flip and Cesaro landed on top of Swagger! Cesaro manged to suplex Suplex Swagger back into the ring from the Ring Apron, and after Swagger hit the canvas RVD flew and hit Jack with a Five Star Frog Splash to eliminate him from the match!

RVD eliminates Jack Swagger via pin fall

With Jack Swagger eliminated, this Triple Threat match, becomes a one on one match! We have seen these two face off before during The Intercontinental Championship Tournament! Van Dam was able to pick up the victory over Cesaro that night, and admittedly they did not put on a good match that night! Tonight they look to out do their previous match! Both superstars have already taken damage, but they were holding nothing back! Van Dam pulled out his Extreme side tonight. We saw Van Dam hit classic moves such as The Spinning Leg Drop from the ring apron to the outside to Cesaro who was hanging over the barricade, we saw Van Dam pull out an impressive Rolling Thunder, it definitely had to be the best one I’ve seen from him! Cesaro took the damage, but he also dished it out to Van Dam! At one point Van Dam pulled out a Trash Can and looked to use it against Cesaro, but The Swiss Superman his a Baseball slide right into the Trash Can and sent it right into the gut of RVD! The Trash Can played a part at the end of the match. RVD threw it at Cesaro, and he was able to catch it but this set him up for the Van Damninator! This set Cesaro up for a Five Star Frog Splash! RVD set the Trash Can on top of Cesaro and went for the Frog Splash, but Cesaro moved out of the way, but left the weapon there and Van Dam landed right on top of it! Cesaro forced Van Dam up to his feet and hit The Neutralizer on top of the Trash Can to win the match by pin fall!

Winner – Cesaro

Rating – 8\10: What an opening match! All three men looked great here tonight! Sadly Swagger was the first one to go, and me being a fan of Swagger and Colter it sucks to see him go first, but it took to hard hitting moves to take him out! Cesaro and Van Dam made everyone forget about their sloppy match on Raw a few weeks ago with their brief one on one match! I was also glad to see RVD pull out the Extreme! With the PPV being called Extreme Rules and RVD being the king of Extreme, it just made sense! even if it was just a Trash Can! A great opening match here, but I’m a little worried for all three men! I don’t see where they go from here. I’m sure WWE will come up with something for Cesaro, but as for RVD and Swagger, I expect them to be in limbo for awhile!

Backstage Segment W/ Daniel Bryan (c) & Stephanie McMahon

We see backstage the Doctor is checking on Bryan, when Steph comes in and ask for a minute alone with Bryan. Mrs. McMahon explains that she can’t control Kane, and she is worried for Bryan and tells him there is away out of it, and he Bryan needs to do is Vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! Bryan tells Steph to get out and Steph responds by telling Bryan, after tonight he won’t be WWE World Champion, but he will be Kane’s Bitch!

Alexander Rusev W/Lana vs. R-Truth & Xavier Woods

Lana comes out first and states she is dedicating this match to Vladimir Putin! Rusev comes out next and the two walk down to the ring! Out next is the team of Woods & R-Truth! Usually Truth & Woods are having fun and rapping when they come down the ring, but as Truth said on the mic, there will be no rapping tonight and things are getting serious! Before the match even begun, before both men could get into the ring, Rusev hit Woods with a Super Kick sending him out of the ring and also took Truth off the apron as well! Rusev went outside of the ring and began to beat down on Woods. Rusev hit Woods with a HUGE slam outside of the ring, and before the match could even begin, Rusev already took Woods out! The match finally began when Truth told the ref he was fine, and the ref was able to hold Rusev back long enough, but the second the bell rang, Rusev went right after Truth and beat him down. Truth did mange to fight back, and even took Rusev down. For the first time in Rusev’s career he was almost defeated! Lana almost had a fit when that happened! but after that pin happened it was over for Truth! Rusev began to beat down on Truth again! The final moments of the match happened when Rusev hit Truth with a HUGE slam! and followed up with The Accolade! to force R-Truth to tap out!

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 6\10: I’m not going to lie! I wasn’t even remotely excited for this match! It was a handicap match, that mimicked Ryback of early last year! but this wasn’t a one sided match and it wasn’t even a handicap match! I thought it was clever and really interesting that Rusev took Woods out before the match could even begin! I’m also glad that it wasn’t one sided, the fact that Truth got some offense in as well and even piked up a two count on him, it really added to the match! Rusev should of won here and he did! The Bulgarian Brute continues his dominance tonight! I’m still excited to see where his career goes! Before I move on though, I do wanna talk briefly about Xavier Woods! Just like Rusev, Woods is still in his rookie year in the WWE, and came over from NXT not to long ago! Its sad to see how far Woods has fallen already, and I really hope things do turn around for him, because Woods could be a great mid card, or tag team if you just let him!

Backstage Interview W/ Evolution 

Renee Young is backstage with all three members of Evolution. She asks them about their match against The Shield later tonight, and what they have done to prepare. Triple H answers by saying the Shield believe that Evolution’s egos is what will cost them the match. The Game admits that all three of them have massive egos before he tells us that they are well deserves. He than goes around and builds up both Batista and Orton before asking Young is she knows why he is called The Cerebral Assassin, she ask why and Triple H responds by telling her that she will find out tonight. Than Orton gets on the mic and states Triple H was right when he said you either adapt or perish, and tonight The Shield will perish and you can believe that! The Interview ends when all three mock The Shield by putting their fist together in the center just like their opponents do!

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match

Big E (c) vs. Bad News Barrett

WWE did something right with The Intercontinental Championship! Along with the United States Championship, The IC title has been losing it’s prestige over the years! but when WWE announced the Number One Contenders Tournament! Barrett did not have any momentum, but that all changed when he finally made his return to the ring and went on to defeat Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus and RVD to win the tournament! He know faces Big E, a man who the WWE Universe at one point thought could bring the prestige back to the title, but sadly he ended up being like all the rest! Barrett came down first and told the Universe that he had some bad news! He talked about this new disease in America and stated we would all soon fall to it, just like Big E would fall to him tonight! Big E was out next and he was Booed, and not by a few people! Majority of the Universe booed Big E tonight! Even throughout the match. There wasn’t to many memorable moments in this match up, but it was still good! These two men went out there and put on a hard hitting battle! We saw Big E hit many of his hard hitting strikes and almost put away Barrett with The Big Ending, but Barrett manged to kick out! Bad News as well dished out his fair share of offense as well! We saw Barrett hit Big E with many of his strikes as well as his old finishing move, Waste Land, but Big E managed to kick out! It looked like Bad News was about to win as he went for The Bull Hammer, but Big E moved out of the way and ran against the ropes, and looked like he was ready to take Barrett down, but Bad News jumped into the air and hit The Bull Hammer to knock Big E out and pick up a three count and his fourth Intercontinental Championship!

Winner & New Champion – Bad News Barrett

Rating – 7\10: It’s great too see Barrett back in the ring, and he is really over with The Universe! Instead of cheering the fan favorite, Big E, the universe chose to Boo him and cheer for The Heel, Wade Barrett! Even though there wasn’t many highlights of the match, that does not take away from this match! These two still went out there and put on a great match! and now the Bad News Barrett is the new Champ, I’ll be interested to see if the title is now elevated! I hope we do get to see a feud between these two! I think these two can elevate each other, and if Barrett continues to stay and become more popular with The Universe! He may find himself in the main event after he drops the strap!

Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista)  vs. The Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose (c) & Seth Rollins)

Before they come out we are shown a video package for this match. The Video highlighted The Shield’s dominance, the re birth of Evolution and of course the rivalry between the two team! The Video was really well down and really got me even more excited for this match! First out is Evolution, and I don’t think Batista got the memo as both Orton and HHH wore Black to the ring, but Batista wore Red! Next out is The Shield, and they don’t take their time as they rushed to the ring. Before the match began, the two teams began to brawl, and The Shield tossed each member of Evolution out of the ring! The match finally began and Seth Rollins and Triple H started out first! In the early parts of the match we saw both teams take it to each other! both teams had their moments of dominance! Evolution beat down on The Shield, The Shield beat down on Evolution! Once we starting getting into the mid match, is when things began to break down! We saw the teams brawl outside of the ring, Reigns attempted to spear Triple H, but The Game moved out the way and Reigns went right into the steel steps! Evolution began to take control over the match, as they singled out Ambrose and took turns beating down on him, Ambrose did mange to tag in Rollins, but that did not change anything as Evolution still took turns beating down on Rollins. Things began to break down though when The Shield started getting back into the match! They did more daring moves and we saw both teams trade blows and honestly it just felt like a brawl! All three members of The Shield were in the ring together and they lifted Batista up and hit him with The Triple Threat Power Bomb! Ambrose went on the outside and began to brawl with Randy Orton, while Rollins attempted to  land a suicide dive onto The Game, but HHH moved out of the way and Rollins went into the barricade! Triple H got into the ring, and lifted Reigns up and hit him with The Pedigree! Triple tried to roll Batista over Reigns, but Ambrose raced into the ring and began to brawl with Triple H and the two went over the announce table, while this is happened Reigns managed to kick out of the pin, but Orton quickly got back in the ring and hit Reigns with an RKO! Rollins got back in and took Orton outside of the ring! Rollins and Orton battles on the outside and Triple H joined in! Orton and HHH beat down on Rollins in the crowd, but Ambrose goes running across the announce table and jumped onto both Triple H and Orton! All Four men battled outside in the crowd! At one point Orton and The Game tossed Ambrose down a set of steel stairs, and the two continued to beat down on Ambrose, until Rollins jumped for the row above them and landed on all three men! Both Batista and Reigns are back up in the ring and we see the two begin to fight! Roman managed to hit Batista with The Superman Punch. Reigns let out his primal scream and ran full force at Batista to hit him with his version of The Spear to pick up the three count for his team!

Winners – The Shield

Rating – 9\10: The Match of the Night! All six of these men went out their and contributed to this match! Both teams dominated at some point and all men looked great here tonight! and I have to say this. My two favorite wrestlers are Triple H and Dean Ambrose! I have been a huge fan of The Game ever since his first return from injury back in 2001, and I have been following Dean Ambrose for his entire career, even before he was hired by WWE and went by the name Jon Moxly! So seeing those two fight for a few moments was just a dream come true for me! There were many great highlights in this match, and I’m sure it will be nominated for Match of the Year! but now that The Shield won, is it over? I doubt it, because I’m sure Triple, Batista and Orton aren’t to happy about losing!

Steel Cage Mach

Bray Wyatt W/The Wyatt Family vs. John Cena

Before the match starts we are shown a video package for this match. The Video highlighted Bray Wyatt! We saw highlights from Wyatt’s and Cena’s match from Wrestlemania 30! and we were also treated to the highlights leading up to this event. Bray was the main focus, as I don’t believe we once saw Cena get the advantage in this build up! The video ended with Bray and the creepy kids from this past Monday on Raw singing “He’s Got the Whole World, In His Hands.” Out first was John Cena who received his mixed reaction as usual, than it was Bray and company! Both superstars are surrounded by the Steel Cage and they begin to take it to each other! For the in ring action, there was not many memorable spots! Honestly this match was mostly Cena! We watch John beat down on Wyatt and than attempt to leave the Steel Structure, but of course both Eric Rowan and Like Harper made sure Cena could not escape! We saw Rowan and Harper stand below Cena, climb up the cage and force him back in and even test their strength against Cena as he tried to escape from the door! At one point early on we even got to see a double team! Wyatt held Cena against the Steel Cage, as Rowan ran and jumped into the part of the cage Cena was against!  Cena looked like he was going to win many times, especially when he locked in the STF, but his mistakes came back to haunt him as Luke Harper (who he pulled inside the cage earlier in the match) broke up the hold! Cena did mange to take out each member of The Wyatt Family, and looked like he was about to win by walking out of the door, but the lights went off and we here He’s Got the Whole World playing over the speakers in a distorted voice. Once the lights come on we see a young boy standing in front of Cena  singing the same song in the same voice. Wyatt takes advantage of this as he grabs Cena and pulls him back in the hit Sister Abigail! Bray than walks out of the door to win the match!

Winner – Bray Wyatt

Rating – 6\10: The rivalry between these two have been great, I just wish the ring work was better. I’m not saying both of their matches were bad, but for a rivalry like this, I feel like the matches should of been far better, especially tonight? I was expecting Cena to beat down on Wyatt, but instead we got to see him dominate Bray for the majority of the match and attempt to escape! Seriously that is all I can really remember about the in ring action. I did think it was interesting how Cena’s plan backfired on him. The reason these two were fighting inside the Steel was to keep Harper and Rowan out, but it didn’t work! The ending with that little boy singing was clever and unexpected! Even though Bray won here tonight, it feels like he lost to me! I thought his mission was to bring out the monster in Cena? Tonight he failed to do that! and even though Cena technically won this match many times tonight, Wyatt is the one that comes away with the victory!

WWE Divas Championship Match

Tamina Snuka vs. Paige (c)

WWE finally gives the audience a break! After having two of a three main events take place, we are given the filler match! Paige defends her championship for the first time against Tamina Snuka! Early on Paige used her speed against Tamina as she stayed away from her strength and even outsmarted her several times! Snuka manged to get back in the match as Paige climbed the turnbuckle and got hit with a Super Kick, sending her outside of the ring! Tamina and Paige brawled outside, and at one point The Divas Champ attempted a Hurricarana, but Tamina showed of her strength when she turned the move around on Paige and swung our champion into the barricade! Things began to look bad for our champ as Tamina began to dominate! Paige showed off her resiliency as she kicked out of every pin attempt! Our Champion managed to get back into the match in the late game and even forced Tamina to tap out after she locked in The Scorpion Crosslock!

Winner & Still Divas Champion – Paige

Rating – 5\10: I feel like this match was rushed, and honestly it probably was. I know both Tamina and Paige are way better than what we saw tonight. They put on a fun match, but it could of been so much better! Paige in her PPV debut, still manages to come away with the victory, but I can’t say I’m happy with the way the WWE is handling her!

Backstage Segment W/ The Wyatt Family

Bray tells the Little Johnny AKA the Young Boy who helped him win the Steel Cage Match. Bray brags about how his word will be heard and ask Johnny if he knows what is next. Little Johnny replies by saying “Follow The Buzzards”

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Extreme Rules Match

Kane vs. Daniel Bryan (c)

Before the match begins we are shown a Video Package for this match! The Video highlights The feud between these two and The Monster Side of Kane! We are shown Bryan’s win at Mania, and we are shown the destructive path, that Kane has left behind him ever since he put his mask back on! Out first is our Champion Daniel Bryan, and it we did not have to wait long for Kane to come out or even for this match to begin, because Bryan did not wait for Kane, he met him halfway down the entrance way! The two began to brawl before the match began, and even after the match began! Kane did get the advantage over Bryan as he definitely embraced The Extreme part of this match! Kane went for many dangerous moves on Bryan, including a Tombstone Piledriver on top of the Steel Steps, but lick enough for Bryan he managed to get out! It wasn’t long before these two took it to the backstage, and this is were the match really picked up! Kane really wanted to hurt Bryan tonight. We saw Kane throw what looked like a Laptop at Bryan, Bryan’s luck continued as he not only dodged the laptop, but moved out of the way before it began to spark since Kane threw it into water. The two battled to the parking lot and Kane tossed Bryan on top of a car and even threw at keg at Bryan that went through the windshield, when Bryan managed to move out of the way! Bryan found a Crowbar in the open trunk of another car and knocked Kane out backstage with it. The only way Bryan could win though is in the ring, so he needed to come up with a way to get Kane back to the ring! Bryan rolled Kane onto a wooden base that was on a Forklift! Bryan than started and drove the Forklift to ringside and rose the base as high as he could before dumping Kane back into the ring! Bryan than climbed up the Forklift and hit a jumping headbutt from the top of the Lift! Kane managed to kick out of a close pin, but Daniel managed to lock in The Yes Lock. Kane fought out of the submission hold but crawling out of the ring, The Champion ran at Kane and flew through the ropes to hit a Suicide Diva on Kane, but The Monster caught Bryan in mid air around the through, before he lifted him up and Chokeslamed him through the announce table! While Bryan laid there on the ground, Kane began to set up another table! The Monster than poured Gasoline on the table an lit it on fire! Kane and Bryan fought on the ring apron, Kane tried to Chokeslam Bryan through the flaming table, but Daniel used the ropes like a sling shot to knock Kane off the apron and through the table on fire. Two men quickly used the Fire Extinguishers to put the flames out, Kane stumbled himself back into the ring, but the second he got him Bryan, who was waiting on him ran full force at his opponent and hit him with The Running Knee!

Winner & Still WWE World Heavyweight Champion – Daniel Bryan

Rating – 7\10: Wow! These two went to the extreme! I never thought I would see a Table on Fire in the PG Era of WWE, but we did! This match reminded be a lot of the Hardcore matches we got to see in The Attitude Era! Kane was the perfect choice for Bryan’s first title defense given their history. Former Tag Team Champions together as Team Hell No! Just last year in this same arena they teamed up together to defend their tag titles against Dolph Ziggler and Big E at Wrestlemania 29! and to see them now feuding is just great! The build up for this feud has been slow, but entertaining! I do get the feeling these two are not done with each other, since as Bryan was walking up the entrance way, Kane got up and made flames come up from the ground behind Bryan!

 

Superstar of the Night – Roman Reigns

 

Tonight all three members deserve this award, but it’s The Superstar of the night, not Superstars of the night! The Shield put on the best match tonight against Evolution! We saw Dean save the match many times, and we saw Rollins put his body on the line for the team, but at the end of they day, it was Roman Reigns who hit Batista with The Superman Punch! It was Roman Reigns who hit Batista with The Spear! and it was Roman Reigns who pinned Batista to pick up the win. There is no doubt in my mind that these three men can become big stars in the WWE, and tonight they looked like it! I don’t think the feud between those 6 men is over, but I do think that once The Shield is finished with Evolution that we will see big things from Reigns! Tonight was the first step of many for Roman Reigns!

WWE NXT |4-24-14| For the Good of NXT?

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of April 24th’s edition of NXT! Tonight on NXT The NXT General Manger, John “Bradshaw” Layfield has an announcement regarding Paige’s NXT Womens Championship! Also the advertised main event of the night is WWE Tag Team Champions, The Usos teaming up with Sami Zayn to take on Corey Graves on The NXT Tag Team Champions, The Ascension in a Six Man Tag Match!

Backstage Segment with JBL and Paige (c)

JBL tells Paige he needs to talk to her about something. He takes notice of both the NXT Womens Championship and the WWE Divas Championship on Paige’s shoulder and says that’s a good problem to have, but sadly he has bad news. With Paige defending the Divas championship all over the world on Raw and Smackdown its not fair to NXT for her to be carrying the NXT title around. Paige at first declines and expresses that he is not going to take away what he has fought so hard for, Bradshaw goes on to explain he has set up a tournament to determine the next Womens Champ and expresses they have big shoes to fill, Paige reluctantly hands over the belt and says let the games begin. The honestly does not make sense to me, we have seen WWE Divas like Natalya and Summer Rae challenge for the NXT Womens Championship, what would of happened if they won? Would the strip them of it right away? I guess WWE want it to seem like Paige is unbeatable, but I would of preferred her take the loss and give another Diva a rub!

Alexander Rusev W/Lana vs. Travis Tyler

Lana comes out and hypes of Rusev in Russian, and than Rusev made his way to the ring, while Travis Tyler awaits him. Tyler got off and early dropkick, but that was about it! Rusev dominated Tyler with many hard hitting strikes and numerous slams, all while the crowd chanted many things starting with Adam Rose’s theme song and even The Iron Shiek while Rusev locked in The Accolade to pick him up the victory.

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 5\10: Just another typical jobber match we have grown accustomed so seeing. Rusev is now dominating WWE talent so it makes sense the Travis Tyler wouldn’t put up a fight. The WWE really wants to get Rusev over and its smart to show him off as much as they can on house shows and NXT. The crowd seemed kind of iffy on Rusev tonight. They didn’t to be to into the match, probably because they already knew the out come, but the USA chant towards the end shows Rusev is getting over, and WWE is accomplishing their mission

Backstage Interview W/ Adam Rose

Devin Taylor is standing by awaiting the arrival of Adam Rose as a party ensues behind her, Adam is carried in by four big guys, he shhs the party as he talks to Devin about Camacho and the comments he made toward Adam. Adam responds by calling Camacho at Party Pooper and says he is boring and even goes on to challenge Camacho and ends it off by telling him to not be a Lemon, but a Rose Bud!

The BFFs (Charlotte & Sasha Banks) vs. Emma & ???

Charlotte and Sasha make their way down to the ring, and next out is Emma, and than we await for her Mystery Tag Partner while we go to commercial, and after the commercial break, the match has already started and we see Emma’s tag team partner is The WWE Divas Champion and Now the Former NXT Divas Champion, Paige. Charlotte looked good tonight as she took it to both Paige and Emma here, Sasha also got some of her moves in, but honestly we did not get to see much from Emma or Paige. Charlotte locked in a Scissor Lock on Emma, as she wrapped her legs around Emma’s throat. Emma fought hard to get out and avoid a elbow drop from Charlotte, both Charlotte and Emma made a tag to their partners, and Paige began to take it to Sasha, and it looked like Paige was getting read to lock in her Scorpion Crosslock, but Charlotte rushed in a drop kicked the back of Paige’s leg while avoiding and tossing Emma to the outside of the ring. Sasha tagged in Charlotte and The Dirtiest Diva in the Game ran and hit Paige with the Front Flip DDT and covered The Divas Champion for the three!

Winners – The BFFs (Charlotte & Sasha Banks)

Rating – 6\10: It was kind of strange how we did not get to see Paige’ entrance. I was honestly surprised to see her, I thought Emma’s partner was going to be Baylee, Charlotte looked good her tonight as she took it to two of the WWE’s Main Roster Divas! I know who won’t be getting the Superstar of the Night Award tonight, Paige! Paige not only gave up her NXT Women’s Championship here tonight, but was pinned cleanly tonight by Charlotte. It would appear The Daughter of The Nature Boy is destined to become the NXT Womens Champion, and a victory over the current WWE Divas Champion and former NXT Womens Champion, makes her the heavy favorite to win the upcoming NXT Womens Championship Tournament 

Tyson Kidd vs. Mason Ryan

Before this match, it was announced Tyson would be in action next, but I was not expecting his opponent to be Mason Ryan! Ryan has been building up quite an impressive list of victories in NXT, but Tyson Kidd has to be Mason’s toughest challenge yet. Mason dominated Kidd early on with his strength and counter Tyson every step of the way, but Kidd came back with his speed and high flying ability! Thew two went back in forth, but as the commentators pointed out Mason allowed Tyson to catch his breath and it came back to haunt him when Kidd moved out of the way and Ryan went chest first into the turnbuckle, Tyson climbed to the top of the turnbuckle and hit Ryan with a Front Flip Neck breaker for the three.

Winner – Tyson Kidd

Rating – 5\10: These two put on a decent match, but it wasn’t great! The mix between Ryan’s strength and Tyson’s speed made this match entertaining, as it was cool to see Tyson try to use his speed against Ryan, but Mason just countering him every step of the way. Renee Young joined Tyson on the entrance way and congratulated Tyson on the win and said it was great to have him back. Tyson hyped NXT and said with some many eyes on NXT ever since the launch of the WWE Network, NXT has had more eyes on it than ever before, and expresses that this is the re birth of Tyson Kidd! So it would seem like Kidd is going to use NXT to gain some popularity, and its not a bad idea we have seen Brodus Clay do it, so i’m excited for Tyson because he is a great talent and is sure to put on some great matches on NXT!

Angelo Dawkins vs. Tyler Breeze 

This is the first time were getting a look at Angelo Dawkins, he has very generic theme music but he does have this interesting skater look to him, but out next is Prince Pretty, Tyler Breeze! Before the match starts we hear the crowd chanting Breeze is gorgeous! Dawkins get the early control on Breeze taking him down with the most basic of slams. Breeze made his way to the ropes witch forced Dawkins to let go, and Breeze his a cheap shot and led the rest of the match with numerous hard hitting strikes, along with a very long headlock. Breeze kept it entertaining though as he screamed “Don’t touch me” to Dawkins every time he touched him. Breeze than forced Dawkins up to his feet before hitting him with The Beauty Shot for the win!

Winner – Tyler Breeze

Rating – 4\10: Not really a good match here, it was honestly the most basic of matches possible. We saw beginner slams from Dawkins, some punches from Breeze along with a headlock and The Beauty Shot. I know Tyler has more in him, but it seems he is on the beat jobber path right now as it would seem like creative has nothing for him to do. I don’t know if Dawkins is still green or not, but I would like to see more from him to be honest, because his look really caught my eye!

Brodus Clay Highlight 

We are shown the match from last week between Clay and NXT World Champion, Adrian Neville, it would appear backstage Brodus Clay attacked Adrian Neville backstage and Neville actually lost teeth. I don’t know if he had fake teeth there, but there were teeth on the ground and Neville was missing theme, than again now that I think about it he wasn’t bleeding, so maybe he really is missing his teeth there or just has fake ones, but either way Brodus was made to look like a threat, even though he suffered a loss to Neville!

Corey Graves & The Ascension (c) (Konner O’Brian & Rick Viktor) vs. Sami Zayn & The Usos (c) (Jimmy & Jey Uso)

It is now time for our main event out first was Corey Graves and he was followed by the NXT Tag Team Champions, The Ascension, and than their opponents, first was Sami Zayn and than the WWE Tag Team Champion, The Usos! We start off with One of the Usos along with Rick Viktor! The two traded blows, but it was The Uso who got the advantage on Viktor, until Graves tagged himself in. Zayn begged to get in the match, and The Uso tagged him in, but Graves avoided Zayn and tagged on Konner. Konner dominated Zayn, before Graves once again tagged himself in. Zayn began to take it to Graves and eventually tagged in Jey Uso. Jey was taking it to Graves, but Corey was able to land a shoulder block to the leg of Uso and tagged in Konner, and both Konner and Viktor traded tags as the took turns beating down on Jey. Jey Uso had many close calls to tag in his partners, but The Ascension and Corey Graves made it priority to keep Jey in. Jey did however finally make the tag to his brother Jimmy after quickly crawling through the legs of Viktor, and things began to look good for the Usos and Zayn. Graves eventually got the tag and this is where things began to heat up and Sami was able to tag himself in without Graves noticing and caught Corey off guard with a huge Cross Body and almost picked up the victory, he than went for the running boot into the turnbuckle, but Graves managed to move out of the way but he couldn’t rest for long as Zayn hit an impressive power bomb on Graves and almost picked up the victory but Te Ascension rushed in and broke up the pin. One of The Usos and Zayn took The Ascension out of the equation and Zayn ran at Corey and hit him with The Big Boot in the Turnbuckle, One of the Usos tagged himself in while Zayn and the Other Uso jumped over the ropes to the outside to take out The Ascension while The Legal Uso in the ring hit Corey Graves with The Splash from the top rope to pick up the win!

Winner – The Usos (c) & Sami Zayn

Rating – 7\10: I’ve been saying for weeks I want to see The Ascension get challenged and finally a challenge is put before them. Not only did they have to take on the impressive Sami Zayn, but also took on The Current WWE Tag Team Champions, Jimmy & Jey Uso! It was hard hitting and back and forth. Both teams had their chance to shine, and we may have gotten a preview of a future rivalry over the WWE Tag Titles between The Usos and The Ascension! It’s not often The Tag Champs taste to defeat so it will be interesting to see how they respond to that! On the other side, the rivalry between Sami Zayn and Corey Graves has yet another chapter added to it, as Zayn was able to get some well deserve revenge on Corey Graves!

Superstar of the Night – Tyson Kidd

Tonight NXT didn’t really have much of a pop! The only real big announcement is that Paige is no longer the NXT Womens Champion, but tonight we may have seen a new beginning for Tyson Kidd. Kidd has all the talent in the world and it deserves to be shown, and with NXT be more of a wrestling based show over Raw and Smackdown, this is the perfect place of Kidd. Tonight he picked up an impressive victory of Mason Ryan who is no easy match up. Hopefully Kidd NXT is the platform that finally shows The WWE Universe how good Tyson really is!

WWE NXT 3-13-14 – Do You BO-Leive?

Hello everyone and welcome to my review of March 3rds edition of WWE NXT! Tonight’s highlighted match is Xavier Woods vs. Alexander Rusev, as Woods looks to gain his revenge on Rusev after his attack on him at NXT: Arrival!

Paige (c) vs. Sasha Banks w/ Charlotte

Last week we saw The Dirtiest Diva in the Game (Still not sure if that’s the best nickname for her..) Charlotte take on Emma and defeat her. Now Charlotte’s BFF Sasha Banks takes on The NXT Womens Champion, Paige! An interesting note here, apparently WWE now sells NXT T-Shirts, They said The Ascension, Paige and Bo Dallas all have a Shirt, and one last thing I would like to point out is Tensai is no longer Tensai, apparently he now goes by the name of Jason Albert, but anyway onto the match! Sasha Banks is still pretty green, but for some reason she still looks good in the ring! She knows her limit, she stays to what she knows, and I think its brilliant! Sasha is able to keep Paige down for the majority of the match with some basic holds, but Paige was able to get back into it after hitting a couple of stiff clotheslines and following up with her new submission hold The Modified Scorpion Crosslock to force Sasha to tap out!

Winner – Paige (c)

Rating – 5\10: A simple match here, that showed Sasha’s better moveset, and hid her flaws. Paige is excellent as always and really sold Sasha here tonight as a threat! an after match beat down by Charlotte further proves that she will be the next challenger for Paige’s Womens Championship, but a surprise save by WWE Diva Natalya, suggest that we may have a Triple Threat for the Womens Title, witch would be an excellent way to go to get the belt on Charlotte and hiding her flaws in the ring as well! 

Backstage Exclusive with Sami Zayn!

Corey Graves is heavily highlighted in this short video package from last week. We see how excellent Graves is a heel and it seems like this rivalry between Zayn and Graves is going to be a main highlight on NXT and I’m excited! Afterwards we are shown a Backstage Exclusive with Sami Zayn from last week, and I have to say this was honestly kind of bad. Zayn talked about his match with Graves, and honestly just kept repeating himself over and over and over again. I know he can do better than this!

Mojo Rawley Segment

We are shown a short picture slideshow of Mojo Rawley’s match on NXT Arrival, honestly was kind of dumb, but than we get to see a nice promo down by Mojo Rawley as we see him Hyping himself up in the back. So I’m excited to see Mojo in action tonight!

The Ascension (c) (Konnor O’Brian  & Rick Viktor ) vs. Travis Tyler & Cal Bishop

The NXT Tag Champs come out to a new chant of YAH! I gotta say I love The Ascension’s new T-Shirts! The only thing that saddens me about The NXT Champions, is that they have no real challengers! I don’t believe there are any other tag teams in NXT right now, so its unfortunate that we have to see them face Jobbers every single week. Another thing I would like to point out is I have been misspelling The Tag Champs names wrong Its Konnor with a K not a C and Viktor with a K and not a C, so my apologies! Anyway the match was hard hitting Travis Tyler sure took a beating from the Tag Champs! It was pretty cool to see Cal Bishop actually get the upper hand on Viktor, but it was short lived as Viktor got back on Bishop. Bishop made a quick tag out as Konnor rushed in a pulled Tyler in! The Ascension hit a gnarly move on Tyler they called The Guillotine, which is basically A whip into a high knee, after that The Ascension followed up with The Fall of Man to pick up yet another win!

Winners – The Ascension (c)

Rating – 7\10: The Ascension is a kick ass team! They are hard hitting and I would love to see them in the ring with The Usos or The Rhodes Brothers on WWE TV! I really wish NXT had more Tag Teams though, because as great as The Ascension is, I wanna see them challenged!

Mason Ryan vs. Wesley Blake

I remember Wesley Blake! So it would appear that “A Real Cowboy” Wesley Blake is NXT’s resident jobber, s he takes on the massive Mason Ryan! but I do have to admit, I did not have high expectations for this match, but it actually surprised me! Wesley actually started to fight back, and honestly made it feel like this match could be his for the winning! Blake even got a one count of Ryan, and it may not sound like a big deal, but trust me for a jobber its a pretty big deal when you look good in a match! but Ryan did kick out and power up and hit some well placed punches before he picked him up and slammed him down for the three count!

Winner – Mason Ryan

Rating – 6\10: For a match that I thought was going to be quick and bad, it actually turned out to be great. Mason was pretty green last time I remember, but seems like he keeps getting better in the ring, and Blake did surprise me here as well. Well done for both men!

Bayley interview

Devin Taylor is backstage to interview Bayley about the WWE Network! Bayley geeks out over the network and goes on to nerd out over her friend ship with Natalya and getting to meet WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hit Man” Hart! Than Charlotte and Sasha Banks show up and begin to make fun of Bayley, but Bayley quickly grabs the Puppet Summer Rae and makes fun of Sasha Banks and says she can beat her in  a match! Charlotte begins to make fun of Bret Hart, before Natalya comes in and begins to pick fun at Charlotte’s father The Nature Boy Ric Flair! I gotta say this was a well done promo that showed off all four Divas and definitely sets up some exciting matches between a Second and Third Generation Diva!

Xavier Woods vs. Alexander Rusev w/ Lana

Woods comes down to the ring, but this time he comes down with a more serious attitude as he looks for revenge against Alexander Rusev! before Rusev can even come out Tyler Breeze’s music plays as he comes down to the ring and says he knows that Woods and himself don’t get along but he has a bone to pick with Rusev too, so he kindly ask Xavier to leave. The two argue for a bit, before Lana comes out and introduces The Bulgarian Brute Alexander Rusev. As Rusev makes his way down to the ring, Breeze attacks Woods from behind and leave him there for Rusev to finish. It takes a little while, but finally the bell is rang and the beat down begins, as Rusev takes in to Woods. Xavier did get in a little offense as it looked like he was going to take Rusev down, but Rusev was able to get back in control, as he lifted Woods up and slammed him into the canvas before locking in The Accolade to face Woods to Tap Out for the win!

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 6\10: Story Telling is what really added to the match, as we got to see a surprise appearance from Prince Pretty! and it suggest a rivalry between Woods and Breeze and possible Rusev also, but i don’t expect Rusev to waste his time with Woods and Breeze when eh should be main eventing NXT! I for one cannot wait for Rusev to debut on the main roster, and I believe with all the fighting Rusev and Woods have been doing, that Xavier Woods will find himself the first man defeated in Rusev’s long streak of wins!

Adrian Neville (c) Interview

Devin Taylor is set to interview The NXT World Champion Adrian Neville, but before we can get started The former Champion Bo Dallas interrupts and states in two weeks his nightmare ends and he can get his NXT Championship back! He than goes on to say his BO-Leivers are sick on Neville and his face, and his Big Ears, and his Flips and than goes on to say that he is sick of him and says Neville is out of his league, The Champion slaps Bo in the face and the two have  a stare down as were told in Two weeks Bo Dallas will challenge Adrian Neville for the NXT World Championship! I gotta say I was a little bit worried about how Bo Dallas would be without the world title, but I gotta say so far I’m impressed!

Colin Cassady vs. Bo Dallas

Colin Cassady has a huge opportunity here as he takes on The Former NXT World Champion Bo Dallas! Bo is looking to build some momentum for his match against Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship in Two Weeks, but tonight he needs to get through Big Cass first. Early on in the match Colin Cassady had full control over the Former NXT Champ as he overpowered him and took him down many times, but after the commercial break Bo Dallas found a way to get back into the match and ground Cassady with a headlock! Dallas fought hard against Cass, but whatever he did he could not keep Cassady down. Colin eventually found his way back into the match and even hit a huge Big Boot onto Bo, but could not keep him down for a three count. Bo got the advantage over Cassady by poking him in the eye I believe and hitting a DDT on Cass for the three count

Winner – Bo Dallas

Rating- 7\10: Despite the fact that Colin Cassady lost here tonight, he still looked good in the ring, taking the longest reigning NXT Champion to the limit shows that you have the skill to be in the main event. I definitely feel Colin Cassady will be in the NXT Main Event Scene soon! But tonight was all about Bo Dallas gaining some much needed momentum heading into his match against Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship in Two Weeks, and a well fought victory over Colin Cassady definitely gained him some of that momentum! 

Superstar of the Night – Charlotte

I may get a little gripe for this one, but I feel she deserves it! Even though she did not compete tonight, she was the highlight of the NXT Womens Division here tonight! Her after match beat down on the NXT Womens Champion Paige officially started her chase for the title, as tension between herself and Bayley grows and even a new rivalry against fellow generation Diva Natalya defiantly puts the Daughter of The Nature Boy in the highlight of the NXT Womens Division for awhile!
