WWE Payback 2014 – I Quit!

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of The WWE’s Payback! Tonight advertised main event’s resemble our last PPV Extreme Rules card! Tonight John Cena takes on Bray Wyatt in a Last Man Standing Match while The Shield takes on Evolution in a No Holds Barred Elimination match! and of course we will hear the fate of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! but first let’s start with out Pre Show match!

 

Payback Pre-Show

Mask vs. Hair Match

El Torito W/Los Matadores  vs. Hornswoggle W/3MB

Our Pre-show match starts off once again with the two small people of the WWE! Our last Pre-show was a WeeLC match between the two and tonight we will either see El Torito’s mask taken off or Hornswoggle’s hair cut off! Out first is El Torito with Los Luchadores accompanying him to the ring! He is coming out wearing a 2/3 shirt, representing Micheal Jordan who is well known for his time on The Chicago Bulls and since their in Chicago, it makes sense! Out next is Hornswoggle along with 3MB. Swoggle really selling his character tonight, gotta give the man credit, he certainly can act his part! In the begging parts of the match we actually got to see these two have an actual match with grapples and strikes and even Torito landing a impressive drop kick. Swoggle was using his fists as weapons in this match as he hit Torito with many strikes and tried to pull his mask of many times! It wasn’t long before Luchadores and 3MB made their way into the match! We got to see a funny segment that started with Jinder Missing a flip onto the outside of the ring onto one of the Luchadores, and ending with Heath Slater being tossed into everybody after El Torito hit him with a Hurricarana! Back in the ring Torito looked to hit Hornswoggle with a Hurricarana, but Swoggle reversed into a beautiful power bomb. Torito managed to kick out at 2, and this match continues with Swoggle once again trying to pull of Torito’s mask, but this time he manages to do it, unfortunately Torito was wearing another mask under and while Swoggle was celebrating, Torito hit Swoggle with a Springboard Moonsault and covered him for the three count!

Winner – El Torito

Rating -6\10: Tonight these two men proved that they can actually wrestle! They didn’t need any weapons just some well placed comedy! They didn’t overdue and they actually focused on a match that saw some impressive moves that I would of never expected thee two to pull off! Of course the stipulation to the match was Mask vs. Hair and since Hornswoggle lost, it’s time to cut his hair! Swoggle refused at, believing he won the match, but eventually sat in the chair! What surprised me is 3MB didn’t try to convince him to back out and actually told him he had to do it! and that’s when Torito and The Matadores began to shave Hornswoggle’s head using scissors, razors, shaving cream and electric razors. Hornswoggle did well in selling it as I honestly kind of felt bad for him!

Payback

WWE United States Championship.

Cesaro W/Paul Heyman vs. Sheamus (c)

Our opening match of the night is for the WWE United States Championship! These two have produced hard hitting brawls before, and I don’t expect anything different here tonight! Out first is the United States Champion, to a mixed reaction from this Chicago crowd! We get a nice run back of their feud that shows how disrespectful Cesaro can be with just one Handshake! Out next is Paul Heyman who begins to introduce Cesaro, but is interrupted by C M Punk chants! Heyman beautifully handles it by stating Punk is not here, but at the Blacks Hawk’s game, and says tonight their streak will be broken by the LA Kings (I think that’s what he said) just like The Undertaker’s streak was broken by his client, Brock Lesnar! Heyman than introduces Cesaro and the two make their way down to the ring! Once the introductions are all done the match gets under way, and right away Sheamus runs at Cesaro and begins to take him down with some hard hitting forearms! This entire match was just a back and forth hard hitting brawl, and I loved ever moment of it! Cesaro favored his uppercuts majority of the match, catching Sheamus off guard numerous times with the! Sheamus did dish out his own pain especially when he held Cesaro against the ropes and continued to slam his fist against the chest of Cesaro! Sheamus really took it to Cesaro in the mid portion of this match hitting him with many stiff strikes and reversing everything Cesaro threw at him! Cesaro did mange to gain control and was looking at hitting The Neutralizer, but Sheamus manged to reverse into a White Noise that almost picked him up the victory! Heyman played his part to perfection as he always does! Sheamus, despite how hard Cesaro fought, manged to look in The Cloverleaf, but Cesaro would not tap! The King of Swing lived up to his name at the end of the match, when nothing else worked Cesaro lifted The Celtic Warrior up and began to swing him around! I lost count of how Swings happened, but Heyman barked at Cesaro to hit Sheamus with The Neutralizer, but when Cesaro went to pick the champ up, Sheamus rolled him up into a small package to pick up the three count!

Winner & Still United States Champion – Sheamus

Rating – 8\10: What a match between these two. They proved to be on equal levels and showed that they both can take some serious pain! Cesaro sat through Battering strikes and knees to his shoulder blade, while Sheamus fought through Uppercut after Uppercut! The Celtic Warrior and The King of Swing have great chemistry in the ring together, and matches like this will do well in showing how important the United States Title is! The way the match ends, leads me to believe this rivalry is not over, and I’d be happy to see these two go at it again! Maybe with some hardcore stipulation added to it! After the match Sheamus smiled as we walked past Cesaro an Heyman, while Heyman held Cesaro back so this definitely leads me to believe these two are not done with each other!

Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Rybaxel (Ryback & Curtis Axel)

This match was announced in the pre-show. The Rhodes brothers haven’t been winning to many matched as of late and Cody has been putting all the blame on his brother, but tonight before the match we saw Cody and Goldust backstage talking, where Cody admits he has been the problem and points out that this was where the Rhodes Brothers started and this is where the begin again! Out first is The Rhodes Brothers to their horrible theme song and right after them is Rybaxel! The match began between Goldust and Axel! Goldust took the early advantage of Axel, but it wasn’t long until Goldust was on the receiving end of a beat down! Axel and Ryback took turns tagging each other in and beating down on Goldust! Goldust managed to hang in there, but just could not get anything going for himself, until he began to take it to Ryback and forced The Big Guy to tag in Axel, Curtis Axel cut of Goldust and tossed him back into their corner, but Goldust manged to fight out of the corner and make the tag to Cody Rhodes! Axel also tagged in Ryback and Rhodes began to take it to The Big Guy catching him off guard with many strikes and even hitting The Disaster Kick! He covered Ryback, but Axel was there to break up the pin and Goldust rushed in to take out Axel! but it wasn’t long before Ryback got rid of Goldust! Rhodes looked at another opportunity to hit The Disaster Kick, but this time Ryback caught Cody on his shoulders and hit Shell Shock for the win!

Winners – Rybaxel

Rating – 7\10: Both these teams have been very impressive, but Ryback and Curtis Axel have been getting better and better! After coming up short in their tag title match at our last PPV, tonight they took on The Rhodes Brothers in what was a fantastic match that saw them dominate the majority of it and getting the chance to showcase how well they work together! This also could be the last time we see The Rhodes Brothers as a team, because after the match Cody grabbed a mic and told Goldust “Brother to Brother, you need a better tag team partner” placing all the blame on his self as he walked away! I’m not sure if this counts as a heel turn or what, but I’m interested to see what happens next!

Rusev W/Lana vs. Big E

The Ravishing Russian, Lana makes her way out and begins to cut another promo, talking about Russia and Vladimir Putin, and it wasn’t long after that The Bulgarian Brute, Rusev makes his way to the ring waving The Russian Flag proud! As Rusev waves his flag in the ring, Big E’s music interrupts him and The Former Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring waving The United State’s Flag! Rusev and Big E have a short little competition before the match begins, seeing who can wave their flag faster, but once Big E got in the ring, the match began! Rusev ran at Big E, but E was able to dodge and take it to Rusev first! The two battle for a bit trading some hard strike, but Big E did mange to take Rusev down at one point! Rusev struggled to get back to his feet and when he did, it was on the apron! Big E built up enough speed and speared The Bulgarian Brute between the ropes and the two men hit the ground hard and earned a Holy Shit chant from the crowd! Lana had a shocked look on her face as the two made it back into the ring! Big E once again built some speed and looked to hit Rusev with a splash, but Rusev quickly got up and hit Big E with a Teeth Shattering Super Kick! Rusev begged Lana to let him lock in The Accolade and Lana gladly allowed as she screamed “Rusev Crush!” Rusev locked in The Accolade and forced Big E to tap out!

Winner – Rusev

Rating – 6\10: These two put on a fun short match tonight and managed to make it entertaining! Both men looked Strong as Big E became the first man to ever take it to Rusev! The match quickly turned into a battle of USA vs. Russia but its smart to use what is currently going on to help give Rusev some heat! My favorite part of this match was at the end when Rusev begged Lana to let him use The Accolade! It showed just how mad Big E got Rusev, but it also showed how much control Lana has over Rusev! These two are a very dangerous duo!

Kofi Kingston vs. Bo Dallas

This is another match that was announced on our Payback pre-show, but I will also like to note that before this match we saw Brie Bella and WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Bryan talking backstage! We will find out later tonight weather Bryan gives up his title or if Brie Bella is fired. Kingston makes his way down to the ring, and it’s honestly a shame to see how far he has fallen down! He doesn’t even have his pyro anymore! The announcer introduces Bo Dallas before he makes his way down to the ring! Once Bo is in the ring he cuts a promo about Bo-Leiving! He states that even though the Black Hawks are going to lose tonight, that it does not make the crowd losers! Kane’s music interrupts him and The Big Red Monster makes his way down to the ring. Bo and Kofi stand their ground as Kane makes his way down, but it didn’t take long for Bo to abandon Kofi! Kingston tried to take it to Kane, but The Big Red Monster, beat down and Kingston and ended it with a Tombstone Pile Driver! Kane left the ring and Bo got back in to check on Kofi and told Kofi he would be back on his feet soon and all he needs to do is Bo-Leive!

Winner – No Contest

Rating – N/A: There was no match, so that is why there is no rating! I was hoping to see a match here tonight, but I’ve got to say this was a well thought out segment! It continues to show Kane’s dominance and lead to suspicion that Kane is doing Stephanie’s bidding, but also adds heat to the new Bo Dallas character! Sadly for Kofi, he falls further down the pecking order!

WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Rob Van Dam vs. Bad News Barrett (c)

Up next the Intercontinental Championship is on the line! Out first is RVD, who comes out to a decent pop! We get to see how Van Dam earned this match when he won The Beat the Clock challenge when he pinned Alberto Del Rio! We also go to see Barrett attack Van Dam after that match! Once Van Dam’s entrance is done, out comes the champion, Bad News Barrett! and it’s not to long until Barrett grabs a mic and tells us all that he has some Bad News! Barrett tells anyone who was looking forward to RVD walking out the new IC Champ, is going to be disappointed! He states RVD will not get his Payback, and after this match he won’t get a Pay Check! because he is going to take Old Yeller out back and end him! The match starts and Van Dam uses his speed to his advantage as he takes the early control of the match! Van Dam caught Barrett off guard many times with quick kicks and whole arsenal of moves! Van Dam even tossed the champ into the crowd to set of for his spinning leg drop off the apron onto Barrett who was hanging over the barricade! Back in the ring, Van Dam set Barrett up for Rolling Thunder, but Barrett quickly got up but Van Dam quickly sent him back down with a super kick and than continued on to hit Rolling Thunder! Barrett laid in the middle of the ring and Van Dam lept into the air to hit the Five Star Frog Splash, but Barrett rolled out of the way and began to set up for The Bull Hammer Elbow, Van Dam ducked in a rolled Barrett up with a Scissors pin, but Barrett kicks out a 2 and he sends Van Dam out of the ring! Barrett followed him to the outside and attempted to hit The Bull Hammer Elbow again, but Van Dam ducked and Barrett’s elbow went right into the steel post! Barrett rolled back into the ring holding his elbow in pain, Van Dam soon followed and looked for a Split Legged Moonsault on Barrett, but the champ got his knees up! Barrett began signaling for the Bull Hammer again! Van Dam slowly got back to his feet, and got hit with The Bull Hammer Elbow! Wade Barrett covered for the three!

Winner & Still Intercontinental Champion – Bad News Barrett

Rating – 7\10: Van Dam certainly isn’t as agile as he used to be, and you can tell his age is beginning to catch up to him, but he still manages to put on a decent performance! These two put on a hard fought battle here tonight, that showed how important the IC title is becoming! Both Barrett and Sheamus are doing wonders for the mid card title, and as long as the challengers keep putting up such impressive match, both the US and IC title will be restored to their glory!

Daniel Bryan’s Decision

Stephanie McMahon makes her way down to the ring and doesn’t waste anytime and quickly goes over why she is out there and ask Bryan to come! The World Champion’s music plays and Daniel Bryan and his wife Brie Bella or is it Brie Bryan now? Either way the couple makes their way down to the ring. Stephanie gives Bryan to choice to choose his belt or his wives job, and Bryan goes on to allow Steph a choice and points out how the fans don’t really like her, but tonight she can change that if she makes the right choice! Steph is showing no interest as the crowd begins to chant for C M Punk! Steph is quick to respond to the crowd by stating that they want Bryan to quit just like C M Punk did! Steph continues to ask for Bryan’s response and The Champ begins to call Steph a bunch of names until Brie cuts in a calls her a Bitch! Steph and Brie exchange words and McMahon reminds Brie that she is her boss! Brie tells Bryan he knows what to do, and as it looks like Bryan is about t hand over the titles, Brie gets in front and does not allow him to do it! She tells Steph she can’t fire her, because she quits! Stephanie begins to laugh until Brie slaps her across the face! Steph ends up the leaving the ring embarrassed while Brie and Bryan celebrate! I for one feel it is a mistake to keep the belt on Bryan! Call me old school but whenever any champ was injured and it was well known they were not able to defend the title at the next PPV, they were striped of the title! Bryan could still be stripped since apparently there is still no time table on how long he will be out! I do have a hard time believing that, but from what I’ve heard its almost guaranteed Bryan won’t be able to defend it at our next PPV witch is Money in the Bank! I guess Brie is out of a job now as well! I’m interested to see where this go, but I still feel it’s a mistake to allow Bryan to continue to hold onto the title, even though he is injured!

Last Man Standing Match.

Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena

Up next is one of our main events of the night! John Cena and Bray Wyatt have the third and what many people believe to be their last match in their rivalry tonight! Some how Bray Wyatt has managed to look strong in this rivalry despite looking very weak to John Cena in their last encounters! but it’s not going to be easy to get John Cena to stay down! Out first is the Bray and his Family! While Bray awaited the entrance of Cena you enjoyed the cheers of his followers witch was the majority of the crowd! Cena quickly makes his way to the ring and is ready to start this match as is Wyatt! Harper and Rowan got onto the apron as well and it looks like this is going to be a three on one match but the music of the Tag Champs plays and here comes Jimmy and Jey, The Usos to provide back up for John Cena! Now that the numbers are even Cena and Bray start the battle on it was all Wyatt in the early going! Wyatt dominated Cena with many of his trademark moves, but he could not get Cena to stay down for a ten count! Cena did manage to get back into the match and it was around this time the Wyatt’s jumped in but The Usos jumped in to help and a brawl ensued that did not end until The Usos and Harper and Rowan went into the back! During all the distraction Wyatt managed to gain the upper hand by grabbing a chair and using it against Cena! Cena was able to get the chair away from Wyatt and use it against him! Cena also used the Steel Steps as his weapon and at one point picked them up and tossed them over the ropes to the outside of the ring and he hit Wyatt perfectly! Cena continued to control the match until both Harper and Rowan raced back down to the ring to aid Bray! The two began to set up tables but The Usos are back out and managed to take down Rowan but Harper took both out and continued to set up the table while he and Cena brawled! One of The Usos got back to his feet and ran right at Eric Rowan who was sitting in front of a table! The Usos put himself and Rowan through the table while Harper suplexed himself and the other Uso through the other set of tables he set up! Now that all four men are down the action focused back onto Cena and Bray who were battling on the outside of the ring! It wasn’t to long until Bray caught Cena off guard and speared Cena through the time keepers area! After both men answered to count before ten, Wyatt began to beat down on Cena through the arena until they arrived at the Pyrotechnicians area! They set off a loud boom some how and Bray seemed to have an idea! Cena countered it before he could and lifted him up on his shoulder and sent him crashing through a wooden box with an Attitude Adjustment! Cena slammed another big contained on top of the wooden box Wyatt laid in and stood on top as the referee counted to ten!

Winner – John Cena

Rating – 8\10: This has to be the best match these two have had by far! Bray looked strong and even made it seem like he could win at times! Cena may have won here tonight, but not without sacrifice! Cena put his body on the line and took many moves from Bray such as Sister Abigail and many weapons! If it wasn’t for The Usos, Cena may not have even won, and he acknowledged that as he made his way back down to the ring  and helped The Tag Champs to the back! I would of preferred to see Bray walk away a the victor, but he really isn’t a loser tonight as well! He put on one hell of a match and if this is the end of their rivalry, I’ll be interested to see where they go next, but if there is one more match left in these guys, Bray needs to win and that has to be the end!

WWE Divas Championship.

Alicia Fox vs. Paige (c)

I honestly forgot about the Divas Championship, but out first is Alicia Fox, who as of late has been kind of crazy! She has been seeking attention and she certainly got it and even earned a Divas Championship! Out next is the Divas Champion, Paige! and it doesn’t take long for this match to get under way! Fox dominated the early portions of the match hitting Paige with numerous Tilt a’Whirl Back Breakers, but not matter how many times Alicia hurt the champ, Paige would not stay down! Paige fought back into the match and manged to lock in The Scorpion Crosslock to force Alicia Fox to tap out to retain the title!

Winner & Still Divas Champion – Paige

Rating 5\10 – I know my review of the match was short, but I’ll be honest I really don’t remember much of the match! Alicia Fox did dominate the majority of the match by taking it to Paige on the outside of the ring and as I mentioned in the review hit many of those back breakers! I don’t really remember how Paige fought back, I just remember her locking in the cross lock to win! I still don’t feel its a smart idea to make Paige look so weak through out the match and I will never understand why WWE allows the divas down in NXT to put on 5 start matches but not the main roster Divas!

No Holds Barred 6 Man Elimination Match!

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

It is now time for our main event! Over the past couple of weeks The Shield of gained the upper hand over Evolution up until this past Raw when Evolution left The Shield laying in the ring unconscious! Evolution makes their way to the ring first and it wasn’t long before The Hounds of Justice made their way to the ring! It did not take long for the battle to start as all six superstars began to brawl! We saw Ambrose battle Orton, Reigns battle Batista and Rollins battle The Game! After awhile of the superstars brawling we went back into a traditional tag match that saw The Shield  dominate the early goings, but it wasn’t long before Evolution took over and kept Ambrose away from his team members. Ambrose hit The Game and managed to get away from him and tag in Reigns while Triple H tagged in Batista! It was here things started to break down and all three members battled! Reigns and Batista stayed ringside while Ambrose and Orton battled into the crowd ad did Rollins and Triple H! The Game and Rollins battled over to the tech area where Rollins looked to dive onto The Game, but Triple H swung this metal piece and connected with Rollins! Back ringside Reigns began to take apart the Spanish Announce table, but Orton came back and began to beat down on Reigns! It wasn’t long until Triple H made his way back to, and all three members began to beat down on Roman Reigns until the Triple Powerbombed him through the table! The Ref”s raced down to check on Reigns while Ambrose jumped into the battle and tried to take on Evolution, but the numbers game proved to be to much, same goes for Rollins when he jumped back into the action! Evolution beat down both members of The Shield on the entrance way! Triple H pointed out the Reigns was back in the ring and Evolution proceeded to beat down on Reigns. Using a steel chair and beating down on his back with canes! Evolution brought Reigns up to the entrance way, but Ambrose got back up and tried to take on The trio but it wasn’t long until Randy Orton hit a DDT on Ambrose on the concrete! Evolution turned their attention to Reigns again, but Seth Rollins jumped of the Titantron  and landed on all three members! Rollins crawled his way back to the ring and Batista soon followed! The Animal began to beat down on Rollins and looked to hit the Batista Bomb on Rollins, but Seth managed to get out of it and Reigns rushed in and hit Batista with The Spear! Rollins covers Batista for the three

Seth Rollins eliminates Batista!

Orton hit Rollins with the RKO and looked to pin Rollins but Reigns was there to break it up! Orton turned his attention to Reigns and looked to hit Roman with the Hangman’s DDT, but Ambrose smashed a chair into Orton’s back! He tan laid the chair down and hit Dirty Deeds on Orton and covered him for the three!

Dean Ambrose eliminates Randy Orton!

Triple H got back in the ring and looked to hit Ambrose with The Pedigree but Reigns jumps up and lands The Superman Punch on The Game! Batista races in a spears Reigns, ignoring the fact that he has been eliminated! Both men are down and Orton takes this time to slide a Sledgehammer into Triple H! The Game used it to take out Ambrose and looked to hit Reigns with it, but Rollins flies in from the side and connects his knee to the side of the skull of Triple H and Roman Reigns follows up with a spear to Triple H to pick up the win.

Winners – The Shield

Rating – 9/10: Once again The Shield stands tall over Evolution tonight! These 6 men went out there again and put on another Match of the Year nomination! While at some points it got a little boring just watch Evolution dominate one member of The Shield, but it added to the match! It really gave you the feeling that maybe The Shield did get lucky in their last match! but Rollins proves tonight that he is the glue that holds The Shield together! When things were looking bad Rollins turned it around with that huge flip! and one by one Evolution got picked off! I do appreciate how all three members picked up a pin fall over one of the opponents! The only question I have now, is what is next for The Shield? I believe that they are finished with Evolution, and I don’t know where they go from here! Maybe the dream feud between The Shield and The Wyatts can truly happen now! I know we have seen the two teams face off before, but we have never really had an actual feud for between these two teams!

Superstar of the Night – Seth Rollins

It was hard figuring out who the superstar of the night was tonight! Everyone was so impressive in their match tonight! but in my opinion, Rollins is the reason The Shield won tonight! Evolution looked to have the match in their hands before Seth Rollins dove from the top of the titantron onto Evolution! It was than the match changed places! Rollins manged to eliminate the first superstar of the night a trend his tag team partners would soon follow! I don’t know what is going to happen to The Shield next, but I do know there is something planned for them next! Their to big to ignore now, and with Daniel Bryan still gone, no one can rival The Shield’s popularity!

WWE NXT |5-8-14|Who Will Face Neville at Take Over?

Hello my friends and welcome to my review of May 8th’s edition of NXT! Tonight our advertised main event is a Battle Royal to determine to Number One Contender for Adrian Neville’s NXT Championship! and one can only assume the winner of this battle royal will go on to challenge Neville at the next NXT special Take Over! Let’s get started!

Round One of The NXT Womens Championship Tournament.

Emma vs. Charlotte W/ Sasha Banks

We are starting off the night with the second part of round one of the Womens Championship Tourney! We saw both Sasha Banks and Natalya moves on to Round two last week and both Charlotte and Emma are looking to do the same thing, but they have to beat each other! Emma sadly ever since her debut to the main roster has not been on quite the roll! She has found her self stuck in a pointless story that involves her and Santino Marella being “in love,” but Emma has also been racking up quite a losing steak in NXT, but on the other hand her opponent, Charlotte has seen many victories as of late! Emma and Charlotte have faces off before and I’ll be honest there wasn’t much to this match! Emma got in little offense and Charlotte really dominated the majority of the match by using a couple of submission moves. Emma managed to get back into the match, but she used all of her time to pull out Venemma, The Female Snake Sock Puppet that I guess you can say is in love with Santino’s Cobra. Emma attempted to use The Cobra on Charlotte, but luck for Ms. Flair, Sasha Banks was there to warn her, Charlotte ducks and Emma connected The Cobra on Ms. Banks, but Charlotte rolled her up with an interesting pin she calls Charlotte’s Web to pick up the win.

Winner – Charlotte

Ranking – 4\10: Both these women are capable of so much more. I know on the main roster, Emma is stuck in that horrible story, but NXT is where I come to get away from that horrible story. Whenever I see Emma in action on NXT, I’ve come to expect a good match, but tonight was the opposite. Charlotte practically squashed Emma here tonight, and she looks to be the heavy favorite heading into Round Two. We will find out who she faces later tonight!

The Legionnaires (Sylvester Lefort & Marcus Louis) vs. Kalisto & El Local 

Next up is some tag team action between two unknown teams, first is a familiar face as the former manger of Rusev and Scott Dawson, Sylvester Lefort teams up with a new guy named Marcus Louis and they form The Legionnaires, and our next team see another familiar face in El Local and he is also teaming up with a new guy named Kalisto! So two of NXT’s jobbers are looking to step into the tag division! The match starts off with Local and Lefort, and The is the beginning of a one sided beat down! Lefort and Louis took turns tagging each other in to beat down on Local, but finally after waiting for so long Local got himself back in the match by preventing himself from going into the turnbuckle and landing a nice kick right between the eyes of Louis. Both Louis and Local made a tag to their partners. Kalisto comes in with a HUGE Spring Board Cross Body, catching Lefort, and than follows up with an interesting move, it looking kind of like a Cork Screw right into Lefort as he was running at him. Kalisto covered him for the pin, but Marcus Louis was there to break up the pin and even prevented an attack from El Local, or so he though. Louis tossed Local into the ropes, but Local caught himself between the ropes and hung there until Louis went running at him, but Local moved out of the way sending Louis outside the ring and than landed a Cross Body onto him on the outside! Back in the ring Kalisto remains in control as he hits Lefort with many stiff kicks before bouncing into the ropes with a Hand Stand and quickly turning it around to land a kick right to the side of the skull of Lefort. Kalisto covered for a three count.

Winners – Kalisto & El Local

Rating – 5\10: The beginning of this match was such a bore, but the second Kalisto got into this match it got exciting. Kalisto showed of his Lucha skill in the ring tonight and picked up his first win on his debut night. It seems like the NXT Tag Division is beginning to fill up nicely and I’m excited to not only see where this goes, but to see where Kalisto goes in his career!

Camacho vs. Captain Comic

Before this match even was announced, we saw a video of Adam Rose “pumping up” his Rosebud! The match is taking place all because of what happened last week. Captain Comic bumped into Camacho, so after Adam Rose defeated Danny Burch last week, and his Rosebuds came out to join him to celebrate his victory, but Camacho ran down and clotheslined Captain Comic from behind! So tonight the two our facing off, and it was a complete squash as it should of been. Camacho really took it to Comic with hard hitting moves such as, The Dropkick, Wrestling Slams, Jumping Leg Drops and even finished off the match with a Running Samoan Drop!

Winner – Camacho

Rating – 5\10: It’s kind of funny how we have come full circle. Camacho, who used to be a jobber himself, is now doing the jobbing! The was a clever way to keep the feud between Camacho and Rose in our minds, while at the same time limiting their time together. After the match Camacho was looking to beat down on Captain Comic some more, but Rose rushed to the ring to protect his Rosebud. Adam stood there and dared Camacho to come back into the ring as Camacho left. Even though this was a short and one sided match. It actually accomplished quite a lot! Not only to it further the feud between Camacho and Adam Rose, but it showed that Camacho is actually not as green as I thought he was and it even showed character development for Rose, who is usually shown as always happy, but showed tonight he isn’t to happy when one of his Rosebuds are getting beaten up!

Backstage Promos by Alicia Fox & Alexa Bliss

Up next in the final match in Round one of The NXT Womens Championship tourney, but before the match we have two promos by the two women who will be competing in a bit. First is former Divas Champion, Alicia Fox who tells us she can see the future and she sees gold in her future and ends by saying Haters are going to Hate and Winners are to going to Celebrate. Up next is the debuting Alexa Bliss who seems to be playing a good girl kind of character. She expresses how she would love to be take Paige’s place as the Champion and ends her promo by saying when it comes to her, everything is Bliss!

Round One of The NXT Womens Championship Tournament.

Alicia Fox vs. Alexa Bliss

Now it is time for the final match of Round one of the NXT Championship Tourney. We know next week Sasha Banks will face off against Natalya in Round two and Charlotte will be facing either former Divas Champion, Alicia Fox of the debuting Alexa Bliss. Bliss came out with a sparkling Tutu on and even blew glitter at the NXT Universe. I believe Renee Young called her a Fairy, but she reminds me a little more of my friend Alicia honestly or maybe even a Disney Princess. Fox poked fun at the size difference, Bliss is 5 foot something while Fox stands at Six feet! Bliss caught Fox off guard in the beginning, but that did not last long. Alicia Fox hit a hard Tilt a Whirl Back Breaker that did not put Bliss away. Fox kept on with the offense though as she locked in a head lock and kept it locked in, until Bliss fought out of it. Alexa bounced off the ropes, but Alicia caught her and attempted to hit another Tilt O Whirl Back Breaker, but Bliss revered it into a Small Package Pin, to pick up the upset victory.

Winner – Alexa Bliss

Rating – 5\10: Alexa Bliss impresses on her debut as she beats a former Divas Champion, ans she continues on to Round Two, but she has a tough challenge against the heavy favorite, Charlotte! The match itself wasn’t to great, we saw to much dominance from Ms. Fox and even a head lock that felt like forever. I know Fox is capable of more than that, but I don’t know much about Bliss, but who knows maybe she can upset Charlotte and go on to become the New NXT Womens Champion!

Backstage Interview W/Adrian Neville (c)

Devin Taylor is backstage with our NXT Champion, Adrian Neville. First Devin congratulates Neville on a successful title defense against Brodus Clay last week and goes on to ask him about The Battle Royal tonight to determine the Number One Contender for his title. Neville thanks Devin, and goes on to say The Funkasaurous, Brodus Clay is extinct and all that is left his him. He than goes on to say whoever wins this battle royal tonight has his respect and puts over how hard battle royals and even mentions how Cesaro won The Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Neville ends the interview by saying he looks forward to the match!

Battle Royal for The Number One Contender for the NXT World Championship!

It is now time for our Main Event! Whoever wins this Battle Royal will go on to challenge Adrian Neville for the NXT Championship at NXT: Take Over. I don’t know the names of everyone in the battle royal so I’m just going to name off the ones I know. So in the ring after our commercial breaks our superstars such as, Brodus Clay, Aiden English, The Legionnaires, Kalisto, El Local, Colin Cassady, Oliver Grey, Mason Ryan, Yoshi Tatsu, Xavier Woods, and that is all I caught! Mojo Rawley comes out next, and after him is Sami Zayn, during Zayn’s entrance I also saw at the corner of my eye Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd get into the ring as well, and the final superstar to make his entrance his the former and longest reigning NXT Champion, Bo Dallas! The Battle royal begins and it is not to long until we have our first elimination, as Brodus Clay tossed out the now released Oliver Grey!

and quickly just as Oliver Grey is gone we have our next elimination, as Brodus Clay tosses out the former WWE Tag Team Champion, Curt Hawkins.

The superstars begin to brawl once again, but its not to long until we see a group of superstars gang up on the biggest competitor, to work together to get our next elimination.

Multiple Superstars Eliminate Brodus Clay.

Once again the superstars begin to brawl. We see many superstars trying to eliminate the others, but none succeed, but one! Aiden English tosses Danny Burch out of the ring

Aiden English Eliminates Danny Burch.

The superstars go back to brawling, we even get to see El Local connect with a stiff kick to the side of the skull of Camacho, but our next Big Guy makes his presence known, its to bad he just got released not to long ago. Mason Ryan lifts Aiden English over his head and tosses him onto Danny Burch.

Mason Ryan Eliminates Aiden English.

After that elimination, Ryan taunted English while he leaned against the ropes. Honestly Camacho could of tossed him over, but instead we go to commercial break. Once were back for the commercial we see El Local and another superstar, sadly I did not see who it was but they were also eliminated. We were also told during the commercial break Xavier Woods was tossed over, but he landed on the steel steps! Baron Corbin almost eliminates Camacho, but he just hung on. After awhile a Yoshi Tatsu chant broke out for the first time ever in WWE! Mason Ryan his beating down on former NXT Champ, Bo Dallas, meanwhile we see Sylvester Lefort trying to eliminated Kalisto, but Kalisto turns it around and ends up Hurricaraning Lefort and himself over the ropes and down to the floor.

Kalisto Eliminates Sylvester Lefort & Himself.

It is a little while until our next elimination, in the mean time we see many of the superstars battling. There our many superstars left, Xavier Woods and Camacho start to have a chop battle in the middle of the ring as the two traded knife edge tops, but it wasn’t long until Camacho backed up against the ropes. Woods went after Camacho, but he pushed him off, but Woods ran right at Camacho and clotheslined himself and Camacho over the ropes and to the floor.

Xavier Woods Eliminates Camacho & Himself.

The commentators pointed out there our still quite a few big guys in the match, pointing out Mojo Rawley, Mason Ryan, Baron Corbin and Colin Cassady witch could be a very bad thing for late in a battle royal. The commentators also point out that Bo Dallas won last years battle royal and than begin to talk about Sami Zayn, while Zayn attempts to eliminate Baron Corbin, but Dallas attacks him, meanwhile Jason Jordan manages to come up with a huge elimination when he tossed Mojo Rawley over!

Jason Jordan Eliminates Mojo Rawley.

The ring is starting to become more angry. The following superstars remain, Bo Dallas, Sami Zayn, Mason Ryan, Colin Cassady, Tyler Breeze, Baron Corbin, Yoshi Tatsu, and Tyson Kidd and Jason Jordan. Jordan looks to take out yet another big guy. He picks a battle with Baron Corbin, that see him almost get eliminated, but as Corbin went running at him Jordan hits him with a forearm and goes to launch himself back into the ring at Corbin, but Corbin puts his hands up and shoves Jason Jordan out of the ring.

Baron Corbin Eliminates Jason Jordan.

Former NXT World Champion, Bo Dallas goes right after Baron Corbin after the elimination. The two begin to brawl while another Yoshi Tatsu chant breaks out! Dallas has Corbin against the ropes and clotheslines him over them to eliminate him!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Baron Corbin.

Jason Alexander cries over the fact his pick, Baron Corbin, was eliminated! Meanwhile Bo Dallas than picks a fight with Yoshi Tatsu, but Tatsu fights back and has the Former Champ against the ropes. Tatsu goes for a kick to the head of Dallas, but Bo is able to duck it and clotheslines Tatsu over the ropes for another elimination!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Yoshi Tatsu.

The NXT Universe was not to happy to see the man they have been cheering for, Yoshi Tatsu eliminated, and Bo now joins Colin Cassady in the corner to beat down on Mason Ryan. Ryan gets outs of the corner and lifts Bo up onto his shoulders and begins to run, but Bo slides down and uses Ryan’s momentum against him and Mason flies over the ropes!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Mason Ryan.

The Commentators mention there are only five superstars left, but not for long as Bo makes it four in a row when he runs at Colin Cassady, who is leaning up against the ropes, and clotheslines Cassady out of the ring!

Bo Dallas Eliminates Colin Cassady.

and We are down to our Final Four! Bo Dallas, Tyler Breeze, Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd. I can see all four of these men getting a title shot! Bo has history and almost feels naked without the NXT Title around his waist, Breeze has been rising up in popularity, many feel Zayn should of been the one to take the title of Bo’s waist and Kidd has been on a roll since he began to call NXT his home picking up victories over both Mason Ryan and former champ, Bo Dallas and even earning my Superstar of the Week award Two Weeks in a Row! Dallas quickly after eliminating Cassady goes after the closest superstar next to him, witch just so happens to be Tyson Kidd! Dallas grabs Kidd and looks to toss Kidd over the ropes and make it five in a row, but Tyson reverses it and ends up tossing Bo over the ropes!

Tyson Kidd Eliminates Bo Dallas.

The former champion is stunned and pissed! Kidd goes after Breeze, and the two begin to brawl. Breeze tosses Kidd over the ropes, but Tyson hangs on and hits Breeze with a kick to the side of the head before sliding back into the ring. Tyson began bouncing of the ropes, but Breeze catches him off guard with The Beauty Shot! Kidd seems to be knocked out, Breeze tried to lift him but can’t and turns his attention towards Sami Zayn! These two begin to put on a mini match, but it makes its way back into the battle royal as Zayn has Breeze on the outside and is trying to eliminate him. Zayn hits Breeze with some hard punches to the face But Breeze manages to hand on on hit a shoulder thrust into Zayn’s gut between the rings. Breeze than tosses Zayn out of the ring, but Zayn quite literally hangs on. Tyler Breeze returns the favor to Zayn as he strikes him with some punches to the head and gut, as he tries to eliminate him. Tyson Kidd comes running up from behind, but Breeze tosses him over as well almost eliminating Kidd, but just like Zayn Tyson barley hangs on. Both Kidd and Zayn are hanging their while Breeze hammers them with fist. Tyson manages to get his legs around the throat of Breeze and he pulls him over the ropes to eliminate him, but Breeze hits Sami Zayn on his way down and it would appear that all three superstars hit the ground at the same time!

Winner – N/A

Rating – 8/10: This wasn’t you normal battle royal, every body except really Oliver Grey and Curt Hawkins, had their time to shine. We even got to see more from superstars like Jason Jordan, Baron Corbin and Yoshi Tatsu! The highlight of the match was the ending though! I was not expecting to see Three Men eliminated at the same time. Right after it happened the NXT Universe began to chant “Triple Threat” While all three superstars argued. We see the elimination played back in slow-mo and in reality Tyler Breeze one, his feet were the last to touch. I know it and even the NXT Universe knew it went they began to chant his name. Despite how easy is was to see the refs could not, and this actually led to a bit a bit of a mini brawl between Kidd and Zayn of all people! The Universe began to chant for JBL, but instead The COO of the WWE came down and Triple asked the crowd what they should do about this situation, they began to chant Triple Threat again and Triple H says the know whats best for business and next week Tyson Kidd, Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze will fight in a Triple Threat Match for the Number One Contendership for Adrian Neville’s NXT World Championship!

Superstar of the Night – Alexa Bliss

I was originally going to give this to whoever one the battle royal, but no one won. Than I though about giving it to Charlotte since she moved on and his the favorite to win the NXT Womens Championship Tourney, or maybe Kalisto who won his debut match tonight, but Alexa did both. Just like Charlotte she moves on to Round Two and just like Kalisto she won her debut match as well, but unlike both Kalisto and Charlotte she beat a former WWE Divas Champion in Alicia Fox! Alexa Bliss certainly is very attractive, and I’m excited to see more from her, and I feel she has a great future here in the WWE and maybe even NXT!

WWE NXT 2-12-14- Building up to the Arrival!

Hello everybody on welcome to my review of the February 12th edition of WWE NXT! NXT is a program that showcases the up and coming talent from the WWE’s developmental territory. Now I would like to apologize for being a little late on this one, but as we get closer to the release of the WWE Network, we get even closer to NXT: Arrival, and tonight’s show is sure to build up to the historic event, so lets get started! 

Natalya, Bailey & Emma vs. The BFFs (Summer Rae & Sasha Banks) &Alicia Fox w/ Charlotte

We open up the night with some Diva action. It would seem like Alicia Fox is attempting to become a BFF (Beautiful Fierce Female). Emma has been gain quite a lot of momentum lately with her debut to the main roster and how she will challenge Paige (c) for the NXT Womens Championship at NXT Arrival, add in Bailey’s budding rivalry with BFFs and we got a pretty good opening bout. Now the actual match itself was kind of slow and it saw Bailey take most of the damage, but Summer Rae kept it interesting with her constant bullying while she beat down on Bailey. The match ended when The BFFs walked out Alicia Fox and Emma locked the former Divas Champion in the Emma Lock to pick up the win!

Winners- Natalya, Bailey & Emma

Rating- 5\10: Even though the match was slow, it still got its job done, Bailey’s feud with the BFFs continue and now there may be an ally in the future for Bailey in the former Divas Champion Alicia Fox, there has to be a reason why the left her. Of course Emma gained so more momentum as she heads for the biggest match of her career when she takes on the NXT Women’s Champion Paige (c) at NXT: Arrival!

Colin Cassady vs. Aiden English 

The rivalry between Aiden English and Colin Cassady has honestly been quite entertaining! We’ve seen Colin defeat Aiden in a sing off, than we have seen Aiden threaten a handicapped Enzo Amore, and than last week Colin cost Aiden a match against Tyson Kidd, so its only fitting to see these two face off for what I believe to be the second time. The match was okay, i was hoping to see much more for these two since there rivalry has been so entertaining! To me the match felt a bit sloppy and rushed. Aiden picked up the victory after hitting Colin with The Directors Cut for the three count!

Winner- Aiden English

Rating- 6\10: Aiden picked up the victory here tonight, but I have a feeling this rivalry is not over yet. The commentators made a strong emphasis on the fact how they feel Colin can’t defeat Aiden, and I sure hope this wasn’t the final nail in the coffin for the rivalry, because its been just to good for it to end in that match!

Sami Zayn Calls Out Antonio Cesaro

Sami comes out and talks about his career and how he always takes steps forward in his career, but than says that for the first time in his career that he can’t move forward, Zayn’s promo started off pretty good, but go boring after while, luckily Cesaro came down and him and Zayn started to speak going back and forth and keeping it interesting. At some point it seemed like Cesaro had changed his mind and the two were going to shake on it until the crowd took over by chanting Pinky Promise, and as the two were about to Pinky Promise, Cesaro kicked Zayn in the injured knee and told him his answer was still NO! Triple H than came down to the ring and explained that the NXT Universe wants to see the rematch and more importantly He (Triple H) wants to see it, so he made it official that at NXT: Arrival Sami Zayn and Antonio Cesaro will face off in a Two out of Three Falls Match!

Tye Dillinger vs. CJ Parker

Tye received no entrance, so right away you knew this was going to be quick, that is of course you here the music of CJ Parker. Parker who faced The Miz not to long ago and lost to him, is not set to take out all his frustrations on Tye Dillinger. The match was quick, but actually not bad for a jobber match. Parker hits The Third Eye for the three count, but the real breakout moment here was Parker’s post match promo. Parker officially turned heel as he bad month the NXT Universe and practically pushed his Hippy Life Style on us before blaming the NXT Universe for all the worlds problem (Ex: World hunger) and than at the end said if the NXT Universe doesn’t love him, than he doesn’t love the NXT universe!

Winner- CJ Parker

Rating- 4\10- Now the match got a low ranking, just because it was a jobber match. This is actually the highest I’ll rate a jobber match since there so quick, but Parker looked good tonight. A quick win and a great promo definitely makes me forget about his quick loss to The Miz, and hoping for big things for CJ Parker!

Jason Jordan & Marcus Lewie vs. The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper & Eric Rowan)

The Wyatt family makes there return and quick work of it to! Marcus Lewie got no action in as Luke and Eric completely demolished him to pick up the quick victory!

Winners- The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper & Eric Rowan)

Rating- 4\10: It was nice to see The Wyatt’s but a little bit of a waste to put them into a quick match, could of just given Bray the mic and have him deliver one of his creepy promos, but again it was nice to see them

Bray Wyatt Post Match Beatdown & Promo!

Bray ends the night but stepping in the ring and hitting Sister Abigail on Jason Jordan and than cuts a face (Good Guy) promo stating that The Wyatt’s have already injected their poison into the NXT Universe, but NXT will always be there home. As I said before it would of been nice if they would of just given Bray the mic and let him give  a long promo before the end, but it was a nice change to see Bray pull of a face promo!

Superstar of the Nigh- CJ Parker

What a turn around for CJ Parker. Just a few weeks ago Parker was quickly put away by The Miz, and it honestly looked like the WWE had no faith in him, but tonight a quick and one sided victory plus an excellent after match promo not only makes him the Superstar of the Night, but now he is on my radar and now that I know he can provide good results, I’m going to be expecting more from The Moon Child!
