WWE Money In the Bank 7-14-13: Two Brand New Mr. Money In the Banks Crowned

 

Money In the Bank Kickoff

During the Money In the Bank Kickoff (Pre-Show), WWE Tag Team Champions and Shield members Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns defended their championships against #1 contenders and Reigns’ second cousins The Usos (Jimmy & Jey). The Usos came within inches of becoming the new champions, but in the end, it was Reigns who hit Jimmy with his signature maneuver “The Spear” to get the pin and the win for his team and retain their championships. I sure hope The Usos aren’t done with The Shield because Jimmy & Jey are way overdue for a WWE Tag Team Championship reign.

It’s Not Cryback, It’s Ryback

Chris Jericho went one-on-one with Ryback. During the weeks leading up to their match, Jericho played mind games with Ryback by referring to him as “Cryback”; unfortunately, it was not enough to over come the powerhouse when Ryback rolled up Jericho to get the pin and the win.

Kaitlyn’s Injury May Have Cost Her

In a WWE Divas Championship rematch between BFFs-turned-bitter enemies, Champion AJ Lee (accompanied by Big E Langston) and Challenger Kaitlyn (accompanied by Layla El), Kaitlyn came into the match wearing a sleeve over her injured left …

WWE Main Event 7-3-13: Only One Hero Conquers

Christian

Money In the Bank Momentum

In a match that had huge implications for the upcoming WWE event, Money In the Bank, it was Christian (one of the competitors in the WWE Championship Contract Money In the Bank Ladder Match) who went one-on-one with one-half of Team Rhodes Scholars Damien Sandow (one of the competitors in the World Heavyweight Championship Contract Money In the Bank Ladder Match). After back-and-forth action between the two competitors, it was Christian who hit Sandow with his signature maneuver “The Killswitch” to get the pin and the win.

Victory For America(?)

Prior to the match between Sin Cara and Jack Swagger (accompanied by Zeb Colter), Colter not only expressed his discontent for illegal immigrants in America, but also the way in which Americans celebrate Independence Day. Colter’s rant did not sit very well with Sin Cara and was looking to prove a point against Swagger. Unfortunately, it was not to be, as Swagger forced Sin Cara to submit to his signature submission hold “The Patriot Act” to get the victory.

Big E Langston Dominates

In the main event, Curt Hawkins went one-on-one with Big E Langston (accompanied by WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee). While I am …

WWE Raw 7-1-13: The Two World Champions Collide

 

Every Money In the Bank Competitor, Except One, States His Case

With the WWE Championship Contract Money In the Bank Briefcase hanging above the ring and a ladder inside the ring, Daniel Bryan came out to state his case on why he would win the WWE Championship Contract Money In the Bank Ladder Match at the upcoming WWE event, Money In the Bank. Then, all the rest of the competitors for this match came out, which consists of Sheamus O’Shaunessy, Randy Orton, Kane, Christian, and CM Punk. The only one who was conspicuous by his absence was Rob Van Dam. After all the rest of the men stated their cases, chaos followed when Orton struck Kane with his signature maneuver “The RKO”.

Kane Gets Some Unwanted Assistance

Backstage, Daniel Bryan informed his former Team Hell No tag team partner Kane that Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero made a match between Kane and Randy Orton with Daniel Bryan as the special guest referee. I am a fan of both Kane and Orton and was not sure who to root for in this one. As for the match, at one point, Orton kind of shoved Bryan, leading to Bryan disqualifying Orton …

Kaitlyn Turns the Tables On AJ Lee

WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee (accompanied by Big E Langston) went one-on-one with Natalya Neidhart in a non-title match. Right when the match officially got under way, AJ’s theme music hit and it was none other than Kaitlyn coming out dressed as AJ, similar to what AJ did to Kaitlyn on Raw the previous Monday. Kaitlyn then went on to ridicule her former BFF by telling everybody that in addition to the vast number of superstars AJ has been intimate with, there are rumors that she has been intimate with several of the WWE personnel that were seated at ringside, including Smackdown ring announcer Lilian Garcia. After AJ and Natalya began locking up with one another, Kaitlyn, at one point, began to skip around ringside in typical AJ fashion, which not only drove AJ insane, but provided enough of a distraction to allow Natalya to roll up AJ to get the pin and the win. After the match, Kaitlyn put the exclamation point on her mind games by hitting AJ with her signature maneuver “The Spear”.

WWE Superstars 6-28-13: The Miz and Antonio Cesaro Dominate.

 

The Good News

The Miz went on-on-one with Wade Barrett in a rematch from WrestleMania 29. In the end, the result was the same as WrestleMania; Wade Barrett tapped out to The Miz’s signature submission hold “The Figure-Four Leg Lock” and Miz gets the victory.

The Bad News

In the main event, one-half of Team Cobro Zack Ryder went one-on-one with Antonio Cesaro (accompanied by Zeb Colter) in a battle between two former United States Champions. In the end, despite a valiant effort by Ryder, it was Cesaro who emerged victorious. When is WWE going to give Zack Ryder the push that he so richly deserves?…

TNA Gut Check Returns

In a TNA Gut Check Match, “The Big O” Adam Ohriner, who is currently not a part of TNA, went one-on-one with Ryan Howe, who is currently spending time down at TNA’s Developmental System Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). While I was a fan of both these men, I decided to root for Ohriner. In the end, it was Ohriner that came out on top. But will it be enough to impress the TNA Gut Check Judges (Bruce Prichard, Al Snow, & OVW Owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis) to advance to having the opportunity to earn a TNA contract, or will Howe advance?

Mickie James Retains, Velvet Breaks Down

After weeks of ducking Velvet Sky, TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Mickie James finally had to defend her championship against Velvet, the woman who was entitled to a rematch after losing the championship to Mickie. Although Velvet was medically cleared to compete, her knee was not 100% going into this match and Mickie took full advantage of exploiting that. In the end, it all paid off when Mickie defeated Velvet to retain her championship. After the match, in an interview with ring announcer Christy Hemme, Velvet expressed her frustrations …

Emma Advances

In the final first-round match of the tournament to determine the first-ever NXT Women’s Champion, Emma went one-on-one with Aksana. In the end, it was Emma who defeated Aksana by submission to advance to the semi-finals. After the match, Emma invited young members of the WWE Universe into the ring to dance with her, which indicates that she has turned face.

The Wyatt Family Continues to Terrorize NXT

In a match to determine the #1 Contenders to Wyatt Family members Luke Harper’s & Erick Rowan’s NXT Tag Team Championships, the team of Kassius Ohno and Corey Graves took on the team of Scott Dawson and Garrett Dylan (accompanied by Sylvester Lefort). In the end, it was Graves who won the match for his team by submission to become the new #1 contenders. Immediately following the match, The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, & Erick Rowan) came out to attack Ohno and Graves. Dawson and Dylan eventually joined in on the beat down. Then, Adrian Neville came out to aid Ohno and Graves and eventually, William Regal left the announcers’ table to aid them as well. But in the end, iall four men were left lying in …

WWE Main Event 6-26-13: The Shield’s New Competition

The Shield Are Put On Notice

Christian went one-on-one with United States Champion and Shield leader Dean Ambrose in a non-title match. Christian was out for retribution after being attacked by The Shield (Dean Ambrose & WWE Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) on Smackdown from the previous Friday. In the end, Christian got the win via disqualification after the other two Shield members came out and attacked Christian. The Shield continued their attack on Christian, until the the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship and Reigns’ second cousins The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) came out to even the odds. In the end, Christian and The Usos drove The Shield away from the ring. This all lead to a Six-Man Tag Team Match for that week’s upcoming Smackdown.

Tons of Funk Get A Grand Introduction, Only to Be Defeated

Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) got introduced in grand fashion when their corner women The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron Lynn), along with WWE’s newest diva Jo-Jo Offerman, performed Tons of Funk’s & The Funkadactyls’ theme music “Somebody Call My Momma”. Personally, I thought their singing was as beautiful as they are. All three of these …

WWE Raw 6-17-13: Daniel Bryan Finally Proves to the Entire World (or Rather Himself) That He Is Not the “Weak Link”

 Double Disqualification = Rematch

The show began with a rematch between Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan. I am a fan of both of these men and I was not sure who to root for in this one. At one point, both men ended up outside the ring and got so aggressive with one another to the point where they both ended up getting disqualified. This led to Bryan, who has been obsessed with not being called the “weak link” for quite some time now, going to Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero and demanding a rematch for later in the evening, which Vickie eventually agreed to.

AJ Lee Strikes Again

During a match between Kaitlyn (accompanied by Layla El) and Aksana, Kaitlyn’s theme music hit and out comes WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee dressed as her. Aksana tried to take advantage of the distraction, but Kaitlyn was able to hit her with her signature maneuver “The Spear” to get the pin and the win. After the match, AJ Lee had her friend Big E Langston come out and they then proceeded to mock Kaitlyn by re-enacting the hoax that AJ pulled on Kaitlyn a few weeks ago. Layla ended up having …
