NXT_Wrestling

There are many superstars in WWE who are contented with their lives. There are, however, some who stand above the rest.

WWE Should Make This Reality Show Happen

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella

Jimmy Uso and Naomi

Tyson Kidd and Natalya

In a recent article from WWE.com, it talked about potential WWE reality shows. WWE has already produced three reality shows; which consists of Tough Enough, Total Divas and Legends’ House. One of the potential shows in the article is called The Real Husbands of WWE. It is considered a spin-off of Total Divas with the show revolving around both the professional and personal lives of some of the WWE Superstar husbands of the star cast members of Total Divas both past and present. For instance, the star cast members of The Real Husbands of WWE are Daniel Bryan (the husband of WWE Diva Brie Bella), Jimmy Uso (the husband of WWE Diva Naomi) and Tyson Kidd (the husband of WWE Diva Natalya). The article also mentioned that the show would feature guest appearances by WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H (the husband of WWE Diva and WWE Principal Owner Stephanie McMahon). Out of all the potential reality shows mentioned in the article, I think that WWE should actually make this one happen. In addition to the names mentioned for this show, I also think that it would be a good idea to add additional names as star cast members …

My WWE Fastlane Hopes/Predictions

WWE-Fastlane-ppv-logo-Fast-Lane

Fastlane Kickoff

MizTv with Special Guest Paul Heyman

The Miz will host another segment of his talk show MizTV and his special guest will be Paul Heyman. Paul Heyman will likely be giving his insight on the match between Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan, which will determine the #1 contender to Heyman’s client and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, assuming that Lesnar is still champion by the time WrestleMania 31 takes place. Also, I think that Miz’s personal assistant Damien Mizdow will be accompanying Miz for this segment of MizTv. I hope that Mizdow finally takes a stand against his delusional boss and turns face.

 

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) (c) vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd

For the past few weeks, these two teams have been going at it. At the inaugural Fastlane, Cesaro & Kidd finally get an opportunity at The Usos’ WWE Tag Team Championship. Both teams have bested each other in the weeks leading into this match; however, in the end, I think that The Usos will come out on top and remain WWE Tag Team Champions.

 

WWE Divas Championship Match

Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige

Ever since Paige …

My Royal Rumble Hopes/Predictions

Royal Rumble 2015

Kickoff Match

The New Day (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston & Big E) vs. Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd

The trio of Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd has formed an alliance with one another under the common purpose of feeling that WWE keeps overlooking them. While they may have a good argument for that, I personally feel that all three members of The New Day are being overlooked as well. Instead of being bitter and complaining about it like Rose, Cesaro & Kidd do, however, The New Day is spreading the positive message that as individuals, they are great, but together, they can be even better. Not only do I hope that The New Day comes out victorious in this match, but I hope that all three members of The New Day end up being participants in the Royal Rumble Match as well.

 

Paige & Natalya vs. The Bella Twins (WWE Divas Champion Nikki & Brie)

Paige & Natalya have recently formed an alliance against common enemies The Bella Twins. All four of these divas are current star cast members of WWE reality show Total Divas. One particular thing that has been bothering me about the recent reunion …

NXT Has Made a Huge Impact in WWE

NXT_Wrestling

Whether it was the original version of NXT where an NXT Rookie was paired with a WWE Pro or NXT the current developmental system of WWE, many of today’s WWE Superstars on the main roster have come out of NXT. Some of these superstars have made it to the top, some have made a huge impact and some still have yet to make their presence felt. I am very confident that there will be many more superstars to come out of NXT in the near future.

 

NXT Alumni

 

The following superstars listed below have managed to land spots on the main roster. Some have gone on to become top stars, some are still working their way to the top and some even still spend part of their time down at NXT.

 

 

Adam Rose and some of his Rosebuds – Adam Rose owns numerous victories over former World Champion Jack Swagger and The Rosebuds continue to follow him.

 

AJ Lee – 3-time WWE Divas Champion and Slammy Award Winner.

 

Alex Riley – Owns victories over 3 former World Champions and current panelist for the Raw Pre-Show and for Kick-Off shows before the WWE Pay-Per-View events.

NXT Takes Over the Night After WrestleMania

Paige WWE Divas Champion

Introduction

 

WrestleMania 31 is in the books. The following night on Raw, the WWE Universe was still feeling the impact that was made the previous night; however, what they did not expect to feel was the impact that NXT was going to be making throughout the entire Raw show. Whether it was the original NXT that featured pros and rookies paired together or NXT, the current developmental system for WWE, this night mostly belonged to NXT.

 

The Wyatt Family’s Mind Control?

 

During NXT alumni’s The Wyatt Family’s (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) Six-Man Tag Team Match against the team of John Cena, Sheamus and current Intercontinental Champion Big E, there were a lot of WWE Universe members who rallied behind The Wyatt Family. Anybody who is familiar with them knows that they are all about the mind games. Is it possible that The Wyatt Family have gained control of some of the WWE Universe members’ minds? I guess only time will tell. I should also point out that The Wyatt Family was victorious in this match.

 

Emma Continues to “Emmaze”

 

NXT alumnus Emma recently arrived on the main roster. Ever since, she has impressed people with …

The “WWE Countdown” Is On

WWE Countdown

WWE Network has officially launched and it includes all-new original programs. One of those programs is called Countdown. Countdown is a program where WWE counts down numerous top ten things in history. In the premiere episode, WWE counted down the top ten catchphrases in history. The list included famous catchphrases like Booker T’s “Can you dig it, Sucka?”, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “If you Smell what The Rock…is cookin’”, Daniel Bryan’s “Yes! Yes! Yes!” and more. The #1 catchphrase was none other than Ric Flair’s “Woooooo!”. One catch phrase that was “Above and Beyond” the list was Vincent K. McMahon’s “You’re Fired!”. One of the best parts about the premiere episode of this program was that not only was Vickie Guerrero’s “Excuse Me!” not mentioned once, but Vickie was not shown on this episode at all; I guess there is a God. Based on this premiere episode, I truly believe there are more awesome things to come on Countdown.…

Things That Need to/Should Happen In WWE In 2014

wwe 2014

The new year of 2014 has officially begun and there are many things that I feel that need to, or at least should, happen in WWE in 2014.

Changes with the Championships

Both the Intercontinental and United States Championships should be unified because just about every other current major championship has been merged into one. WWE should also bring back the European Championship so that superstars can once again get the opportunity to join the list of WWE’s Grand Slam Champions (e.g., WWE World Heavyweight or World Heavyweight Championship, Intercontinental or United States Championship, World, WWE, or Unified Tag Team Championship, and European or Hardcore Championship). Lastly, the WWE Divas Championship needs to be put on the line at WrestleMania 30 this year because it has never been on the line at any WrestleMania in history.

Superstars Who Deserve to Become Champions

Sin Cara should become either the Intercontinental Champion or United States Champion because he has proven time and time again that he is worthy, he is way overdue. Also, Zack Ryder needs to be put back in the championship picture because he busted his ass to win his first and only United States Championship a few years ago …

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella…Power Couple of 2014?

daniel-bryan-and-brie-bella

 A New Era Begins

This past Sunday, at the final WWE Pay-Per-View event of 2013, TLC (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs), WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee retained her championship against Natalya Neidhart. Also, in the main event, both WWE Champion Randy Orton and World Heavyweight Champion John Cena put their respective championships on the line against one another in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Championship Unification Match. With both championships hanging above the ring, in the end, it was Orton who ended up grabbing both championships to become the first-ever WWE World Heavyweight Champion in history.

 

Possibility for WrestleMania 30

WrestleMania 30 takes place on April 6, 2014. Now, assuming AJ Lee heads into WrestleMania as Divas Champion, Brie Bella would be her opponent and they would have the first-ever WWE Divas Championship Match in WrestleMania history. Also, if Daniel Bryan was to go on to win the Royal Rumble Match and earn an opportunity at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, assuming Orton would still be champion heading into WrestleMania, they would face one another. First, Brie would win the Divas Champion from AJ. Then, in the main event, Daniel would win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Orton. Afterwards, …

Was John “Bradshaw” Layfield Part of the Plot?

 JBL

Last month at WWE SummerSlam, then-WWE Champion John Cena defended his championship against Daniel Bryan with WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H serving as special guest referee. All three of these men were faces at that time and Cena and Bryan still are. In the end, it was Bryan who beat Cena to become the new WWE Champion. After the match, Cena was a sport and shook Bryan’s hand and also shook Triple H’s hand for calling the match straight down the line. After Cena had left the ring, Bryan began celebrating his victory; however, the celebration was cut short by Randy Orton, who came out to cash in his Money In the Bank WWE Championship contract, which consisted of a guarenteed opportunity at the championship at anytime and anywhere. I would also like to point out that Orton was a face at the time as well. Then, Triple H shocked the entire world when he hit Bryan with his signature maneuver, the Pedigree. Then, Orton cashed in his championship opportunity and Triple H appointed himself as special guest referee for the match. Once the ring bell was rung to begin the match, Orton picked up Triple H’s scraps and …

WWE Debuts It’s Second Reality TV Show

As some may know, Tough Enough was the first reality TV show that WWE made. Tough Enough is a show that features contestants competing to become the next WWE Superstar. Last Sunday, it was the debut of WWE’s second reality TV Show, Total Divas. Total Divas is a show that revolves around the professional and personal lives of WWE Divas Natalya Neidhart, The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron Lynn) of Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay, Tensai, & The Funkadactyls), The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie), and WWE’s newest Divas Jo-Jo Offerman and Eva Marie. On the first episode of Total Divas, some very interesting things were revealed. First off, it was revealed that some of the divas are in respective relationships with their fellow WWE Superstars; Nikki is dating WWE Champion John Cena, Brie is dating Daniel Bryan, Naomi is engaged to Jimmy of The Usos (Jimmy & Jey), and Jo-Jo is dating Justin Gabriel of International Airstrike (Justin Gabriel & Tyson Kidd). It was also revealed why the 8-Person Mixed Tag Team Match between Tons of Funk and the team of the now-defunct Team Rhodes Scholars (Damien Sandow & Cody Rhodes) and The Bellas that was supposed to happen at …

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 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 …
