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 Elimination Chamber 2014- Who Will Face Batista at Wrestlemania?

Hello everybody and welcome to my first review of a WWE PPV (Pay Per View). Tonight we make our last stop on the Road to Wrestlemania, and we stop at The Elimination Chamber! One of my personal favorite PPV’s, and I am extremely excited for the event! Now I’m hoping I can do this review justice since I am going to be watching this show on my laptop, and trust me when I say my laptop sucks! and the show sometimes freeze and becomes un-watchable, but I’m going to do my best, so without further to do, let’s start with the Pre-Show!

Pre Show

Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Rybaxel (Curtis Axel & Ryback) w/ Larry “The Ax” Henning

What a wonderful surprise it was to see the legendary Larry “The Ax” Henning accompany Ryback and his grandson Curtis Axel! I hope to see him a lot more! This was a great match back and forth action between these two teams that saw many cool spots! At times it did get a little sloppy, but  they held it together! The match ended when Cody Rhodes revered Curtis Axel’s neckbreaker into a Cross Rhodes!

Winner- Cody Rhodes & Goldust

Rating- 7\10: This was a missed opportunity if you ask me. I was honestly expecting to see some confusion between the Rhodes brothers, hinting towards the rumored match at Wrestlemania 30, but it looks like Goldust was telling the truth when he said there would be no math between him and his brother! but I still think it was a missed opportunity. We all wanna see The Rhodes face of at Mania and it is still possible, but Ryback and Axel should of picked up the victory here! It would of led to a possible split and match between The Rhodes Brothers, but with Larry “The Ax” Henning in the corner, it could of turned things around for Rybaxel!

2014 Elimination Chamber!

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match

Jack Swagger w/ Zeb Colter vs. Big E (c)

We open up the night we the Intercontinental title on the line. This rivalry has been pretty entertaining given how late it started. This could be Zeb’s night, both Jack and Cesaro can walk away with Championship gold! The match itself was honestly very entertaining. A very hard hitting battle between these two that saw Big E spear Swagger into the steel steps and even through the ring ropes. Swagger of course dished out his own beating and even looked like he was going to win when he locked in The Patriot Lock, but Big E found a way out and hit The Big Ending for the three count to retain his Intercontinental Championship. Zeb’s night did not start of well!

Winner and Still Intercontinental Champion- Big E (c)

Rating- 7\10:

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Usu) vs. The New Ago Outlaws (c) (Road Dogg Jesse James & Bad Ass Billy Gunn)

Two Championship matches in a row! Next up The Tag Titles are on the line as The Young Usos takes on The Veteran Team of The New Ago Outlaws. This was a match I would prefer to see at Mania, I really thought we were going to see The Rhodes challenge The Outlaws again, but I’m glad we got this match. The Usos took the early advantage, until Road Dogg caused an early injury to one of The Usos (Sorry I can’t really tell them apart when there in the ring), and than the matched turned into the favor of The Champs! The action slowed down at this point, but The Outlaws kept it interesting which is good since recently they have gotten a bad rep for slowing a match down! The Usos got the how tag and it all turned into their favor as The Uninjured Uso took on both Outlaws practically! The match ended when Billy Gunn missed a Big Boot and The Uninjured Uso hit Road Dogg with a super kick just to get rolled up into a pi by Billy Gunn for the three!

Winners and Still Tag Team Champions- The New Age Outlaws (c)

Rating- 7\10: I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit worried about this match! Lately The Outlaws have honestly brought down the Tag Titles and the match they have been in, but tonight they put all that in the past, and pulled off a great match with The Usos tonight. I’m honestly not sure where we go from here though, do we see The Usos get a rematch at Mania, or will another Team challenge The Outlaws at Wrestlemania 30!

Darren Young vs. Titus O’Neil

We saw the split of The Prime Time Players a couple weeks ago, and despite the rivalry not getting much TV time, it still managed to be entertaining with the little time we had. The match itself was decent. Nothing to memorable happened here, but the former tag partners put on a good match. Titus picked up the victory by hitting The Fall of Titus for the three count

Winner- Titus O’Neil

Rating- 6\10: There was no real question about who was going to win here. Titus has been praised by the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) and he is the one who looks to be getting the push. Darren’s mission tonight was to look good while losing. Did he do it? Kind of, this match did not blow me away, but it kept me entertained. I wish I had good things to say for Darren Young’s future, but honestly its not looking to bright. On the other hand Titus looks destined for at least a mid card role, and maybe even a future world championship!

The Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose (c) & Seth Rollins) vs. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & Eric Rowan)

Oh man, this is the most anticipated match on the card tonight! Both The Shield and The Wyatt’s have been built as an indestructible force, and tonight they face off. The build up has been amazing! and the match will definitely be a choice for match of the year for 2014! We saw each member of The Shield take on every single member of The Wyatts! We saw numerous huge spots, We saw how aggressive Dean Ambrose can be, and how quick Seth Rollins is proving that Roman Reigns is not the only star of the group! We also got to see a more aggressive side of The Wyatts here tonight! Once we got towards the end we saw the match really pick up! We saw Ambrose and Wyatt battle through the crowd, Rowan and Reigns battle in the ring and Rollins and Harper on the outside. Bray came back through the crowd leaving Ambrose behind? Honestly we don’t know what happened to Ambrose because we never saw what Wyatt did to him, than we saw both Harper and Rowan get up on top of the announce table with Seth Rollins to double choke slam him through the Spanish announce table, and all that was left was Roman Reigns. Reigns fought back and even looked like he was going to win it for his team, but Luke Harper took the spear from Reigns, giving Wyatt the perfect chance to hit Reigns with Sister Abigail.

Winner- The Wyatt Family

Rating- 9\10: They stole the show here tonight, best match on the card! Back and forth action between these two teams. I’m still wondering what happened to Ambrose since we never really saw, but The Wyatts prove to be dominant, as not only did they defeat The Shield, but Bray pinned the unstoppable Roman Reigns! and now that we head to Wrestlemania its unclear whether The Shield will be wrestling at Wrestlemania as a team or against each other, but its guaranteed that The Wyatts will go into Mania not as a team, but a Family!

WWE Divas Championship

Cameron vs. Aj Lee (c) w/ Tamina Snuka

A sad little confession, I actually didn’t get to catch this match. I only saw bits an pieces as I was to distracted with my charger not charging (I gotta get a new one) and of course my internet decided to act up, but from what I did see..it wasn’t impressive. Cameron gets the win by Disqualification after Tamina kicks her, thus making sure Aj holds onto the title!

Winner- Cameron By DQ Still Divas Champion Aj Lee

Rating- N/A: I can’t really rate a match I didn’t watch, but I’m sure I didn’t miss out on anything…I mean its Cameron wrestling!

Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio

Del Rio at first seemed like he was trying to weasel his way out of this match, as he came down to the ring in his warm ups with a neck brace on and one crutch. He proceeded to explain that because of Batista’s attack on him, he is unable to compete…and than he hits Batista with the crutch. This goes on for a couple minutes, until the ref finally separates the two and Batista tells the ref he wants to go on, and than we are forced to sit through watching Del Rio beat down on Batista, and we are forced to listen to a disrespectful crowd just to witness Batista come back and hit the Batista Bomb for the three count!

Winner- Batista

Rating- 4\10: This match was just bad. We watched Del Rio just beat up on Batista for the majority of the match, but what ruined this for me was the crowd. I don’t want to go on to much of a tangent here but when a crowd disrespects the wrestlers it pisses me off! I understand that the WWE Universe does not like Batista, but to chant the stupidest things in the match just gets me. I don’t mind hearing the fans chant for Daniel Bryan, but what gets me when I hear chants for C M Punk, Jericho and RVD! None of those men work there Punk still does, but it is expected for him to just leave once his contract is up, but to me that is just disrespectful to chant for someone who does not even work there just because you don’t like another man. This match was just awful!

Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

John Cena vs. Christian vs. Randy Orton (c) vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. Sheamus

and now it is time for our main event! Cena, Christian, Orton (c), and Bryan started off in the Pods while Cesaro and Sheamus started of the match. We saw these two duke it out with some hard hits that makes me wanna see a feud between these two sooner, rather than later! The first person out was Daniel Bryan, but to me personally I felt Bryan slowed the match down when he first came out. I was expecting Bryan to make the match more interesting, but I was really enjoying the brawl between Cesaro and Sheamus! Out next was Christian, and still the match just wasn’t entertaining to me even though four men were in! Out next we had Cena and at this point the match got pretty sloppy, and finally out comes Orton (c) and this is where the match caught my interest. It was funny to see Orton cower in the corner while Bryan, Cena and Sheamus stared him down, it was even more funny to see Orton cower back into his pod. Everyone gave up on trying to get the Champion except for Sheamus! Sheamus stood there and watch Orton mock him until he put his boot through the pod to hit Orton (c) with the Brogue Kick! After that happened the match once again became pretty sloppy and uninteresting and it took Sheamus attempted to Ultraplex Christian off the top of the pod for the match to become interesting again, but Orton prevented it and Superplexed Sheamus off the top turnbuckle witch led to Christian diving off the top of the pod to splash down on Sheamus to pick up our first elimination!

Christian Eliminates Sheamus by Pinfall

It wasn’t long after Sheamus’s elimination to see our second one, as Bryan ran up and hit Captain Charisma with the Flying Knee to pick up our second elimination!

Daniel Bryan Eliminates Christian by Pinfall

After that elimination that match once again slowed down, we saw Cesaro take control for a little while, up until Cena got him up on his shoulders and gave him The Attitude Adjustment to the outside grating and than pulled him back in to lock in The STF to force Cesaro to tap out!

John Cena Eliminates Cesaro by Submission 

and then there were three, and it appeared like Orton was screwed and that we were gonna end the night with Bryan and Cena battling over the title, but The Wyatts had different plans, as the lights went out and there they were inside the chamber and they went directly after John Cena beating him up just enough for Orton to slide in a eliminate The Leader of the C Nation!

Randy Orton Eliminates John Cena by Pinfall

and there were two, Kane came down to the ring and got rid of The Wyatts, and than went into the ring to check on Cena, but Bryan jumped right into Kane and hit him with a knee,  but he took his eyes off of Orton and got hit with an RKO. Orton covered for the pin but Bryan kicked out, and the WWE Universe got any there feet and all started chanting “YES! YES! YES” but Kane socked him right in the jaw and Orton hit yet another RKO to retain his championship!

Winner and still WWE World Heavyweight Champion- Randy Orton

Rating- 6\10: This has to be the worst Chamber match I have ever watched. There went many highlights, and majority of the highlights were in the beginning! Bryan seemed off his game tonight, I really wanted and expected to see a lot more from Cesaro and it just didn’t feel like a Chamber match. We now know for sure Batista will challenge Orton for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Wrestlemania 30, its pretty much a guarantee that Bray Wyatt will face Cena, it seem like Bryan will go on to face Kane or HHH, but as for Cesaro, Christian and Sheamus I have no prediction for what there Wrestlemania is going to look like.

Superstar of the Night- Bray Wyatt

Tonight was The Wyatt Family’s night! Not only did they defeat The Shield, but they made their presence known inside The Chamber! and even though as a Unit the Wyatt Family shined, Bray shined the brightest of the all. Not only did he pick up the win for his family, but he pinned Roman Reigns who has been so unstoppable a of late and then just to add more of a exclamation point to his night he cost John Cena the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and now it appears he is heading for the biggest match of his career at Wrestlemania against Cena himself. A huge night for the man formerly known as Husky Hairs!

2-10-14 Monday Night Raw- Betty White is Raw!

Hell everyone and welcome to my review of the 2-10-14 episode of Monday Night Raw. All week it has been not only heavily hyped that Randy Orton (c) will take on John Cena in our main event, but we even have special guest host Betty White! So without further to do, lets get started!

Opening Segment

We are introduced to Betty White as she comes out of the entrance way on the arm of The Big Show, Betty waves to the fans and talks a bit about the show tonight and even says she is here tonight to kick some ass! The Authority (Triple H & Stephanie McMahon) comes out and greets Betty, I will say I loved the stare down between Big Show and Triple H showed that there is still some tension between the two, but any way The Authority walks down to the ring and comments on how the said they would consider Daniel Bryan to be the face of the WWE if he defeated Randy Orton last week, but they also commented saying that they would consider Christian, Sheamus, Cesaro and even John Cena! Orton (c) shortly came out there and actually apologized to Triple H and Steph, and expressed how much he wanted to be the face of the WWE and even called himself the heart and soul of the WWE! Daniel Bryan’s music hits after Orton (c) claimed to be the heart and soul, and bragged about how he beat Orton (c) last week and how he wanted Kane tonight. The Authority ended up responding by giving Bryan the night off claiming it was Best for Business!

Rey Mysterio, Goldust & Cody Rhodes vs. The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & Eric Rowan)

The first match of the night see tag team action, as Mysterio, and the Rhodes Brothers team up to take on the dangerous Wyatt Family. The match it self was nothing special honestly and its a shame to say that since both The Wyatt family and The Rhodes Brothers have been putting on some great matches! I mean the match wasn’t bad, but it felt slow to me. There was some high spots especially The Sister Abigail at the end when he caught Rey in mid air and hit him with it! Bray cuts a promo on The Shield afterwards, and I’ll be completely honest with you guys I really don’t remember what he said!

Winners- The Wyatt Family

Rating- 5/10: I’m honestly pretty disappointed with this match. I had high expectations going into this one given the past matches that both The Wyatts and The Rhodes Brothers have had in the past. The match just felt really sluggish to me, and I feel it could of been better, but it accomplished its goal and that was to make The Wyatts look strong heading into the 6 Man Tag Match against The Shield at Elimination Chamber!

The Shield Interview

Before the interview began, we got a nice video package showing of Roman Reigns permanence at The Royal Rumble! The Shield briefly talks there match with The Wyatts, but it quickly turns against Dean Ambrose (c) as Renee Young comments on how long it has been since Dean (c) has defended his United States Championship. Ambrose (c)  goes on by saying no one is worthy of facing him, and Roman laughs at him and asks is that the kind of champion he wants to be. Dean (c) gets frustrated and announces he will hold an open challenge tonight for his United States Championship! I will say one thing about this interview, it further the tension between Ambrose (c) and Reigns! and it would appear The Shield will break soon!

Betty White Segment #1

All the Divas are backstage with Betty White talking about how The Older Generation likes to prank the young generation. Vickie Guerrero came in at some point and said to Betty “From one Cougar to another, I’m glad your here”, than the New Age Outlaws (c) (Road Dogg Jesse James & Bad Ass Billy Gunn) came in and told Betty they believe the Younger girls are looking to prank her tonight, and that they will protect her, and than The Outlaws (c) walk off with Ms. White.

Santino Marella w/Emma vs. Fandango w/ Summer Rae

So at first I thought this was going to be a Mixed Tag Match, but no instead were getting a match between Santino and Fandango. Summer Rae was at Fandango as always, but Emma accompanied Santino down to the ring. The match it self was okay, nothing to special. It was honestly just a filler match that saw Fandango dominate, while Santino got little offense in. At one point in the match The Miz came down to the ring, as he did last week and jumped on commentary to comment on the fact the Twinkle Toes (Fandango) and the guy with an act that is older than Betty White (Santino Marella) can get on Monday Night Raw, but he can’t. The match ended when Fandango his his Flying Leg Drop on Santino for the three!

Winner- Fandango 

Rating- 5\10: It would seem that Emma is in a feud with Fandango and Summer Rae, which would make sense given the fact that all three of them have a dancing gimmick, and it would seem that The Miz is also getting a new gimmick since this is the second week in a row he came down during a match to express his frustration with the WWE.

Sheamus Interview

Byron Saxton joins the team this week, and the first person he gets to interview is none other than The Celtic Warrior, Sheamus! Sheamus talks about his friendship with Christian, talking about how they are great friends, better enemies and will work well together as a team tonight. He than goes on to say how he is going to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ion the Elimination Chamber. It was just your basic Sheamus interview, but I do want to say something. I don’t feel Sheamus get enough credit int he mic section. Sheamus is no doubt a great wrestler who defiantly can get the crowd behind him, but he is pretty good with a mic in his hands too!

Christian & Sheamus vs. The Real Americans ( Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro) w/ Zeb Colter

So Sheamus teams up with one the men he will be facing at The Elimination Chamber to take on The Real Americans! During Christian’s entrance we were treated to a short video promo about Christian talking about the upcoming Chamber Match and how he could be The Face of the WWE, than during The Real American’s Entrance, Zeb Colter got on the mic and expressed how much he despises both Sheamus and Christian, and than allows Cesaro to take the mic and talk about the upcoming chamber match that he will also be competing in. Now the match was great, and Cesaro defiantly stole the show in this match, because he single handily carried this match, and that’s saying something when your in the ring with such talent like Christian and Sheamus. One thing I would like to say is I’m excited about the potential rivalry between Sheamus and Cesaro in the future, because those will be some great matches! The match also further showed that a split for The Real Americans may be coming, as Zeb continues to show Cesaro all the love, and continues to yell at Swagger for his mistakes. Sheamus got the win for his team when he ducked a clothesline from Swagger and hit a ferocious Brogue Kick for the win!

Winner- Christian & Sheamus

Rating- 8\10: Wow! What a match. I’m excited to see more matches between Sheamus and Cesaro, I’m still extremely against The Split of The Real Americans, but it seems like its going to happen soon.

John Cena Interview 

Renee Young Interviews John Cena, ans ask him about his match against Randy Orton here tonight. Cena cuts a great promo as he says tonight he close the book on the feud between him and Randy Orton, and says the Christian, Sheamus, Cesaro and Bryan are all going to have to go through him if they want to be the face of the WWE.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio

Ziggler is set to go one on one against Mexico’s greatest Export, Alberto Del Rio. There was something that caught my eye that I want to comment on. Del Rio interrupted Ziggler’s entrance, and for a brief couple of second you could see an irritated look on the face of Ziggler. The reason I point this out is because there have been rumors that Miz and Ziggler are going to form a partnership based on how they currently feel there being over looked in the WWE! So the fact how Miz has been interrupting  matches to vent his frustrations and now Ziggler showing some frustration in his excellent promo that you can check out on WWE.com. Anyway the match it self was nothing special. It was honestly pretty sloppy with quite a few botches, and it ended quick after Del Rio lands a stiff super kick right to the temple of Ziggler.

Winner- Alberto Del Rio

Rating- 4\10: A sloppy match, that just shows how far Ziggler has fallen. Last year he and Del Rio actually put on great matches, and now Ziggler is made to look like he and Del Rio don’t belong in the same ring together.

After Match Beatdown.

After the match Del Rio attempted and barley succeeded to put The Cross Arm Breaker on Ziggler, but Batista came down for the save and proceeded to beat down on Del Rio, by throwing him around the arena and hit him with the Batista Bomb through the announce table! Its good to see Batista is no longer Public Enemy #1 like he was after The Royal Rumble! The fans actually cheered for him tonight

Batista Segment.

Once we come back from commercial break, we see Batista walking in the back and Triple H comes up and approaches him, letting Batista know things have changed and he can;t have Batista doing what he did tonight and told him its not Best for Business. Batista replied by stating Del Rio is his business. Triple H than makes Batista and Del Rio official at Elimination Chamber

The Latest Inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.

We are treated to a nice video package of the new Hall of Famer Lita! Lita more than deserve to go into the WWE Hall of Fame, but my personal opinion I wish they would of held onto this one. We just saw Trish Stratus get inducted last year, and it would of been nice if WWE went with the less obvious route, maybe induct someone like Medusa/Aludra Blaze or maybe even Sable, but either way I’m glad to see Lita getting her much deserved spot into the WWE Hall of Fame!

Betty White Segment #2

Betty White is backstage with both members of The New Age Outlaws (c) and there about to have some tea, Road Dogg brags about how the tea is his special blend, and Billy Gunn distracts Ms. White by showing her the tag title, and while Betty is distracted Road Dogg squirts something else in her drink. As they were all about to take a drink of there tea, Betty decided she wanted some lemon with her tea and sent The Outlaws to go get her some. While The Outlaws s were getting her lemons, Betty switched cups with Billy, and once they returned with her lemons they drank there tea!

Rybaxel (Ryback & Curtis Axel) vs. The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso)

Ryback and Axel are already in the ring, as The New Age Outlaws(c) are om commentary. The Usos put on a great match here tonight against Rybaxel, high flying action at its best. Road Dogg was really impressive on commentary and I think he could make a future out of it if he ever wanted to, most of the commentary was dedicated to two things, 1) The Usos challenge to the Tag Champs and 2) whatever The Outlaws put in Betty White’s tea i coming back to haunt them. It would appear that The Usos are set to challenge The Outlaws for the titles, but I for one feel its to soon. I was hoping for a rematch between The Outlaws and The Rhodes Brothers at The Chamber to set up for the break up and feud between Cody and Goldust, and I was also hoping to see The Outlaws defend and lost the Tag Titles to The Usos at Wrestlemania, it may be coming sooner rather than later it would appear!

Winner- The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso)

Rating- 7\10: Great match tonight, The Usos are quickly becoming the best team in the tag division and definitely deserve to be the top team in the division, and tonight showed it!

WWE United States Championship Match

Dean Ambrose (c) w/ The Shield (Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) vs Open Challenge!

Dean Ambrose (c) come out with The Shield do host an open challenge for his United States Championship, he was over confident heading into the bout, but after he heard the music of his challenger. The World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry returns to the ring and accepts Ambrose’s (c) challenge, now the match itself was actually a lot better than many would think. I’m not saying it was a show stealer, but the two worked around their different styles and were able to put together a decent match up. The match ended when Mark Henry hit Ambrose (c) with The World’s Strongest Slam, but was attacked by Rollins and Reigns once he pinned Ambrose, thus giving Henry the win, but not capturing the title. Henry tried to take the fight to The Shield, but the monster Roman Reigns proves to be to much as he takes Henry down with his Spear. As The Shield was leaving The Wyatt Family came out and we got to see a little bit of a tease for the match between the two team at Elimination Chamber!

Winner- Mark Henry by DQ, but still Champion Dean Ambrose (c)

Rating- 6\10: It’s nice to see Mark Henry return, but this is like the second time this year! The match was good, but I don’t think anyone thought Henry was going to win here tonight. Once again though Ambrose is made to look like the weak link of the group, and The Ambrose fan in me hates it, but the wrestling fan in me knows why they are doing it. The tease at the end of the match between The Shield and The Wyatts was nice, as it just makes me want to see the two groups face off already!

AJ Lee (c), Aksana & Alicia Fox w/ Tamina Snuka  vs. The Bella Twins ( Brie and Nikki Bella) & Cameron w/ Eva Marie

Naomi is apparently out on an injury so AJ finds herself teaming up with Aksana and Alicia Fox to take on The Bellas and Naomi’s tag team partner Cameron. The match actually was not that bad. Nikki, Brie, Aksana and Alicia Fox have all improved in the ring. The only thing that cost this match was Cameron. Cameron is just not ready to be in the ring. She is sloppy and looks lost when she is in there, but she did mange to hit a DDT with she calls Bye Gurl! on Aksana for the win!

Winners- The Bella Twin (Brie and Nikki Bella) & Cameron

Rating- 5\10- Not a bad Divas match, but I hope the Naomi returns soon, and if she doesn’t I hope its not Cameron that takes her place in the hunt for Aj’s Divas Championship!

Alexander Rusev Video

Another short video is shown this week, hyping the debut of Alexander Rusev. Really nothing special here, but I’m still super excited to see The Bulgarian Brute debut!

Kane Promo

Kane comes down to the ring to inform us that he has been reprimanded for his actions last week, but he can’t talk long as Daniel Bryan’s music hits and he rushes down to the ring and the two begin to brawl. Daniel ends up drop kicking Kane over the barricade and stands in the ring and leads the crowd into a “Yes!” Chant as Kane runs away.

Benny White Segment #3

Betty White’s final segment of the night is a short one, as she tells us how much fun she had tonight and announces that it is time for our main event!

John Cena vs. Randy Orton (c)

People are sick of Cena and Orton (c), but tonight they put on one hell of  a match! They went in there and put it all on the line. It did start of very slow at first and I felt like this was just going to be another match that we have seen a million times, but tonight they changed it up and really stole the show. Numerous huge spots helped this match, but after a hard fought battle Cena hit an Attitude Adjustment on Randy Orton (c) to pick up the victory and close the book in the rivalry between Cena and Orton (c)

Winner- John Cena

Rating- 8\10- These two stole the show here tonight with the fantastic match up. I’m a little surprised to see Cena pick up the victory, but not angry. I strongly believe Orton will retain his title in The Chamber as does most of the WWE Universe, so WWE needs to do everything it can to make Orton look like he is going to have a tough time in the Chamber Match!

Superstar of the Night-John Cena

I had a hard time coming up with the Superstar of the night, tonight since no one did anything extremely impressive. Cena pulled out a huge victory over Randy Orton (c) tonight after giving such a great promo earlier in the night, and he did defeat the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and that is always a good argument!
