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 6-12-13: The Usos Bring Down the Funk

The show began with The Miz going one-on-one with one-half of Team Rhodes Scholars Cody Rhodes. The regular commentary team for Main Event is Josh Mathews, The Miz, & Ricardo Rodriguez, but since The Miz was in a match, Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett provided commentary with Josh Mathews throughout the show, with Ricardo Rodriguez being absent altogether for some reason. As for the match, The Miz was victorious. Also, in the main event, it was two fan favorite tag teams going at it as The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) faced Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) (accompanied by The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron Lynn). In the end, it was The Usos who came out on top to end the program. I am a fan of both of these teams, but I was rooting for The Usos in this one. I also think that no matter which team walks out of the upcoming WWE Pay-Per-View event, Payback, as WWE Tag Team Champions, whether it’d be the defending champions Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns of The Shield or the unlikely pairing of Randy Orton and one-half of Team Hell No Daniel Bryan, The Usos should get the next opportunity at the …

WWE Main Event 5-29-13: New Commentary Team

On this edition of Main Event, the WWE Universe was introduced to Main Event’s newest commentary team in Josh Mathews, Ricardo Rodriguez, and The Miz. One of the great things about this new commentary team is the fact that John “Bradshaw” Layfield is not included. Also, it was a back-and-forth-action non-title match between Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett and Sheamus O’Shaunessy. In the end, when both men went for their respective signature maneuvers, it was Sheamus who ended up beating Barrett to the punch (or rather the kick) to get the pin and the win. After the match, Barrett challenged The Miz to step in the ring with him. Miz accepted the invitation and left the announcers’ table to step inside the ring. After a brief face-off, Barrett attempted to hit Miz with his championship belt, but Miz ended up ducking and hitting Barrett with his signature maneuver “The Skull-Crushing Finale”.…

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 5-11-13: Saturday Morning Slam Invades the U.K.

This edition of Saturday Morning Slam took place from the United Kingdom in England. Alicia Fox joined Josh Mathews on commentary for this edition. In a match set up by the General Manager of Saturday Morning Slam and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, Santino Marella went one-on-one with 3MB member Jinder Mahal, with the other two members of 3MB (Heath Slater & Drew McIntyre) banned from ringside. In the end, it was Santino who hit Jinder with his signature maneuver “The Cobra Strike” to gain victory. Also, in a huge main event, the team of Randy Orton & Sheamus O’Shaunessy took on The Prime Time Players (Titus O’Neil & Darren Young). During the match, Alicia pointed out something interesting; Titus O’Neil paints his nails. I don’t know if this is fact or if this is Alicia starting up another one of her gossips. Either way, it was quite interesting. As for the match, it was Orton & Sheamus who emerged victorious to end the program.…

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 4-13-13: Mark Henry Conquers

On this edition of Saturday Morning Slam, Kofi Kingston was on commentary with Josh Mathews. The first match of the morning was a tag team match between the team of Zack Ryder and Justin Gabriel against 3MB members Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal with the leader of 3MB Heath Slater in their corner. In the end, thanks to a distraction by Heath Slater and the hooking of the trunks for added leverage, 3MB got the victory. But 3MB weren’t done there, they attacked Ryder and Gabriel after the match, prompting Kofi Kingston to leave the announce desk to even the odds. Then, the General Manager of Saturday Morning Slam and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley came out and told Kofi that he understood his motives for leaving the announce desk, but that commentators are only supposed to call the action; therefore, he took Kofi off commentary. However, Foley also decided that since the other two members of 3MB had a match, he felt that Heath Slater should have one as well. Therefore, Foley made the next match of the morning between Kofi Kingston and Heath Slater. World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler called the action with Josh Mathews for the …

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 Main Event 3-20-13: Tag Team Action Highlights the Show

The show began with Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett going one-on-one with R-Truth in a non-title match. After Barrett beat R-Truth, he got into a confrontation with commentator The Miz. The Miz ended up running Barrett off. It’s pretty clear that things aren’t settled between these two. Also, Josh Mathews interviewed Sheamus about the possibility of Big Show being his and Randy Orton’s tag team partner against The Shield at WrestleMania 29. Sheamus said that he was not going to speak for Randy Orton and I think he basically indicated that he’s not too sure about having Big Show as his partner. Personally, while I definitely think Big Show has all the tools in the world to stop The Shield, I just don’t think he is a trustworthy guy. Therefore, I think Orton and Sheamus need to choose a guy who is trustworthy. In the first tag team match of the night, it was Natalya teaming up with Layla to take the team of Alicia Fox & Aksana. Right before the match started, Alicia Fox got on the mic and took shots at Natalya’s boyfriend, The Great Khali. Natalya made Alicia Fox eat her words by forcing her to tap out …

WWE Smackdown 3-8-13 Review

On this edition of Smackdown, Michael Cole informed the WWE Universe that he would be filling in on commentary for JBL (the normal commentary team being Josh Mathews and JBL) for the next few weeks due to JBL’s mountain climbing duties. The Assistant to the Raw Managing Supervisor Brad Maddox also unexpectedly joined the commentary team for the night. The two main events were World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio vs. Mr. Money In the Bank Dolph Ziggler in a non-title match and Sheamus vs. Big Show. Del Rio once again came out on top against Ziggler in the series of matches against one another. I don’t know if anybody else notices, but Dolph Ziggler has been on quite a bit of a losing streak as of late. In the other main event, The Shield interrupted the match by attacking Sheamus, thus getting Big Show disqualified. Randy Orton came out to even the odds a little more for Sheamus. Eventually, Big Show recovered from the Brogue Kick from Sheamus and cleared The Shield from the ring. However, Big Show then clocked Sheamus with a KO Punch followed by Orton RKOing Big Show to end the program. Another interesting thing that …

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 3-2-13 Review

On this edition of Saturday Morning Slam, Cody Rhodes filled in for Smackdown General Manager Booker T on commentary (the regular commentary team being Josh Mathews and Booker T) because Booker T was busy with his duties of trying to determine who the General Manager of Saturday Morning Slam should be. The superstars that stated their cases included Damien Sandow, Zack Ryder, Mr. Money In the Bank Dolph Ziggler & AJ Lee, Natalya, WWE Tag Team Champion Daniel Bryan, and R-Truth. But since there was so much jibber jabber going on in Booker T’s office between the potential candidates, he walked out of his office, thus not yet naming a GM. Now me personally, I think Booker T definitely needs to name a face (good guy) as the GM; especially for this show since it is a show intended for kids; I don’t thing we’d want a heel (bad guy) setting a bad example for the kids. Out of all the superstars mentioned above, I would choose R-Truth as the GM because he is not only about the WWE Universe, but he also does a thing that kids would do, which is make an imaginary friend; Truth’s being Little Jimmy. …

WWE Smackdown 3-1-13 Review

This edition of Smackdown was called Social Media Smackdown. This meant that the WWE Universe could send tweets throughout the show. The commentary team for the night was Michael Cole, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, and Josh Mathews. JBL sent out a tout and the commentators spoke with Chris Jericho via Skype. JBL touted from the mountain he is climbing in Argentina for a charity cause and Jericho was skyping from Australia where his band Fozzy was on tour. Also, World Heavyweight Alberto Del Rio announced on WWE Active that he was gonna allow the WWE Universe to vote for his opponent for next week’s Smackdown. The choices were Mr. Money In the Bank Dolph Ziggler, Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett, and United States Champion Antonio Cesaro. Dolph Ziggler ended getting the most votes, so that is who Del Rio’s opponent will be next week on Smackdown. One of the great things about this edition of Smackdown was the fact that JBL was not on commentary, he sucks at it. At least I think the mountain he is climbing is supposed keep him occupied for a little while.…
