The Rhodes Brothers Will Team Up for the First Time Ever

rhodes2

On this week’s September 30, 2013, edition of WWE Raw, abusive power couple WWE Executive Vice President of Creative and WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H invited the entire Rhodes Family (NXT General Mananger and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty and his sons Dustin “Goldust” & Cody) to Raw for a “business proposition”. Both Goldust and Cody were recently uncerimoniously fired from WWE by the abusive power couple. The power couple ended up proposing a non-title tag team match between The Rhodes Brothers and current WWE Tag Team Champions and Shield members Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the upcoming WWE Pay-Per-View event, Battleground. The stipulation of the match would be that if The Rhodes Brothers beat The Shield, then they will be rehired; however, if The Rhodes Brothers lose, then in addition to their father, Dusty, being fired, niether members of The Rhodes Family would ever get to work for the WWE again, as well. The Rhodes Family decided to accept the challenge. Personally, I have always wondered whether or not The Rhodes Brothers would ever team together. Believe it or not, almost everytime people have seen them cross paths with one another, they were at eachothers’ throats. People …

WWE NXT 5-1-13: Chris Jericho Schools Bray Wyatt

The show began with a Triple Threat Elimination Tag Team Match between the team of Bo Dallas and NXT Tag Team Champion Adrian Neville, The Colons (Primo & Epico), and Wyatt Family members Luke Harper & Erick Rowan. The Colons were the first team to be eliminated, then, shortly after, The Wyatt Family eliminates Dallas and Neville to get the victory. Also, after weeks of pent-up frustration boiling over, Paige finally went one-on-one with Summer Rae with Paige getting the victory and some much deserved retribution. Also, NXT Commissioner and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes revealed while he realizes that NXT Tag Team Champion Oliver Grey is currently out with an injury, the NXT Tag Team Championship needs to be defended. Instead of forcing Neville & Grey to relinquish the championships, Dusty has allowed Neville to choose a tag team partner to fill in for Neville until Grey returns. The partner that Neville has chosen is Bo Dallas. Next week on NXT, they will defend the championships against Wyatt Family members Harper & Rowan. Finally, in the main event, Chris Jericho went one-on-one with Bray Wyatt (accompanied by fellow Wyatt Family cohorts Harper & Rowan). The stipulation of this …

WWE NXT 4-24-13: All Champions Retain

The theme for this edition of NXT was “Clash of Champions”. There were four championships on the line. The first match was for the United States Championship. It was announced on the bottom of the NXT screen that this match was taped several weeks ago, meaning that Antonio Cesaro was the champion at the time it was taped, but since then, Kofi Kingston had beaten Cesaro for the championship on Raw. Therefore, we already knew Cesaro was going to retain. As for the match, Cesaro defended against NXT Tag Team Champion Adrian Neville. After back-and-forth action between the two, it was Cesaro who hit Neville with his signature maneuver, the Neutralizer, to get the pin and the win to retain his championship. The next championship match was for the WWE Divas Championship with Kaitlyn defending against former BFF AJ Lee. In the end, Kaitlyn hit AJ with her signature maneuver, the Spear, to get the victory and retain. While AJ may have come up short in this bout, she did win a Divas Battle Royal on Raw this past Monday to earn an opportunity at the Divas Championship, so she will be getting another opportunity at the championship in the …

WWE NXT 4-10-13: William Regal Gets Retribution

On this week’s edition of NXT, Tom Phillips and the Assistant To the Raw Managing Supervisor (Vickie Guerrero) Brad Maddox were on commentary and Kendall Skye handled ring announcing duties. The show began with a 6-Man Tag Team Match between the team of Percy Watson, Axl Keegan, and Scott Dawson against The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns). I should also point out that both Axl Keegan and Scott Dawson turned face on this edition of NXT. As for the match, The Shield defeated the their opponents, thus remaining undefeated as a trio. After the match, The Shield gave Scott Dawson their patented Triple Powerbomb. Then, Corey Graves appeared on the titantron and issued a challenge to any one of the members of The Shield next week on NXT. Seth Rollins stepped up to the plate and told his cohorts that they could have the night off next week. NXT Commissioner and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes confirmed that the match would be a main event Lumberjack Match next week. While I am not a fan of either Graves nor Rollins, I’m gonna be rooting against Rollins. The second match of the night was between The Funkadactyls …

WWE Raw 3-25-13: WWE Championship Match For WrestleMania 29 Intensifies

The show began with CM Punk and Paul Heyman coming out to taunt Punk’s WrestleMania 29 opponent The Undertaker once more. Punk was still in possession of the urn he stole from Undertaker. Eventually, there was a gong and the lights went out in the arena. Then, there was a second gong and when the lights came back on, The Undertaker was in the ring. Undertaker started to attack Punk, but before he could regain possession of the urn, Paul Heyman sprinted off with it and Punk managed to escape Undertaker’s wrath. The mind games from Punk continue. Also, Fandango was scheduled to have a match, but before his opponent could even come out, Chris Jericho comes out to get some retribution on Fandango for his attack on Jericho this past Friday on Smackdown. Jericho drives Fandango out of the ring and Fandango’s match never gets under way. Then, Mr. Money In the Bank, accompanied by AJ Lee and NXT Champion Big E Langston, come out for Ziggler’s match with Jericho that they were supposed to have later on in the show. Jericho ends up defeating Ziggler, but Big E Langston attacks Jericho after the match and lays him out …

WWE NXT 3-13-13 Review

The first match of the night was between Derrick Bateman and Kassius Ohno. After Kassius got the victory, he continued to attack Bateman. This led to William Regal leaving the announce table and putting a stop to Ohno’s attack. Regal later apologized because he felt he was being unprofessional. In my opinion, he didn’t have to apologize for anything because someone had to put a stop Ohno’s attack. The next match was between Emma and Summer Rae. Now while I am a fan of both women’s looks, I am not a fan of either one of them personally, so it was great to see them beat the hell out of one another. However, since I hate Summer Rae more, I was rooting against her. Summer ended up getting the victory, but after the match was over, Paige came storming down to the ring to get a piece of Summer Rae, who injured her shoulder. But Summer Rae chickened out and high-tailed it out of the ring. It’s obvious that the score between these two is far from settled. Backstage, Renee Young interviewed NXT Tag Team Champion Adrian Neville to get an update on his NXT Tag Team Championship partner Oliver …

WWE NXT 3-6-13 Review

The show started with NXT Creative Director, General Manager, Commissioner, and WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes announcing a triple-threat match between Bo Dallas, Corey Graves, and Conor O’Brian to determine the #1 contender to Big E Langston’s NXT Championship. To assure that The Shield would not get involved, Dusty had security all around the arena to prevent them from getting in. The first match was scheduled to be a non-title tag team match between NXT Tag Team Champions Adrian Neville and Oliver Gery against Judas Devlin & Scott Dawson. However, Oliver Grey was nowhere to be found, but Adrian Neville agreed to face his two opponents in a handicap match. Towards the end of the match, Oliver Grey was dragged out from backstage by The Wyatt Family, who apparently was responsible for Oliver’s absence. Regardless, Adrian still managed to get the victory by himself. Later in the show, there was a six-diva tag team match between the team of Sasha Banks and The Funkadactyls taking on the team of Alicia Fox, Aksana, and Audrey Marie, thus turning Alicia Fox heel (bad guy) in the process. Sasha and The Funkadactyls picked up the victory. Finally, in the main event triple-threat …

WWE Raw 3-4-13 Review

Raw went “Old School” last night. Everything was “Old School” from the announcer and referee uniforms to all the stage settings. These sorts of things definitely take me back to when I was a kid. A lot of “Old School” superstars were on hand as well. These superstars included WWE Hall of Famers Gene Okerlund, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, etc. The show began with the return of The Undertaker, who made his way out into the arena to signify a match at WrestleMania 29. Sheamus, Big Show, Randy Orton, and CM Punk all stated their cases for facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero decided to make a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine which one of the 4 men would face Undertaker at WrestleMania. Cm Punk ended up getting the win; therefore, it will be Undertaker vs. Punk at WrestleMania. Also, it was the 90th birthday of WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young. In a WWE.COM Exclusive video, she was presented a replica of the WWE Divas Championship with her nameplate on it as a birthday gift from both WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H and …
