WWE Takes over Grand Rapids Once Again

Van Andel Arena

Last night, I was in attendance at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI for WWE Live. This event was not televised, but one of the best things about that is that something newsworthy can happen that a lot of people do not get to see.

 

Two Divas Switch Roles

 

Summer Rae and The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron) teamed up against Layla, Eva Marie and Rosa Mendes; therefore, this means that Summer Rae is now a face and Eva Marie is now a heel. What began as a dance-off ended up turning into a Six-Diva Tag Team Match. In the end, Summer and The Funkadactyls were victorious.

 

Dancing Confidently

 

It would appear that Cody Rhodes has regained his confidence to team up with his half-brother Goldust once again because they teamed up against WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) and Wyatt Family members Luke Harper & Erick Rowan in a Triple Threat Match for the The Usos’ Championships. While I am a fan of both The Usos and The Rhodes Brothers, I was rooting for The Usos to win this one. I would also like to point out that during the match, both The …

WWE Superstars 6-6-13: All of the Heroes Conquer

On this edition of Superstars, Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) (accompanied by The Funkadactyls (Naomi & Cameron Lynn) took on The Colons (Primo Colon & Epico). While Rosa Mendes normally accompanies The Colons for their matches, she was conspicuous by her absence on this edition of Superstars. As for the match, it was Tons of Funk who emerged victorious. In the main event, it was the battle between two 3rd Generation Divas when Natalya Neidhart went one-on-one with Tamina Snuka with Natalya emerging victorious. All of our heroes conquered on this edition of Superstars.…

WWE Saturday Morning Slam 4-27-13: Our Heroes Conquer

The show began with a Six-Person Mixed Tag Team Match between the team of The Great Khali, Hornswoggle, & Natalya Neidhart against the team of The Colons (Primo & Epico) & Rosa Mendes with Khali, Hornswoggle, & Natalya coming out on top. Also, Team Rhodes Scholars (Damien Sandow & Cody Rhodes) were backstage trying to get people to sign a petition to actually remove the General Manager of Saturday Morning Slam and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley from the WWE Hall of Fame, but to no avail. Two guys that were included in refusing to sign the petition were The Usos (Jimmy & Jey). They basically let Team Rhode Scholars understand all of the reasons why Foley is in the WWE Hall of Fame. Then, Mick Foley himself walks in and decides to make a tag team match between the two teams. As for the match, one of The Usos was able to surprise Sandow with a Small Package roll-up to get the pin and the win for his team. The show ended with leaving smiles on all the kids’ faces.…

WWE Main Event 4-17-13: Wade Barrett Retains

The show began with a Battle Royal to determine the #1 contender to Wade Barrett’s Intercontinental Championship. The winner would then immediately go on to face Barrett for the championship in the following match. The competitors in the Battle Royal consisted of The Great Khali (accompanied by Natalya & Hornswoggle), Justin Gabriel, The Usos, 3MB members Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal, Santino Marella, Primo & Epico (with Rosa Mendes in a neutral corner), Yoshi Tatsu, and Alex Riley. I’m surprised that R-truth wasn’t a competitor because he had beaten Barrett in a non-title match this past Monday on Raw. In the end, Justin Gabriel outlasted every other competitor, thus earning the championship opportunity. There is a lot of history between Barrett and Gabriel. For instance, they were both rookies during season 1 of NXT and they are both former members of the factions The Nexus and The Corre, so these two know each other quite well. As for the match, Barrett ended up defeating Gabriel and retaining his championship by first raking Gabriel’s eyes (unbeknownst to the ref) and then finishing him off with his finishing maneuver, the Bull Hammer Elbow. Since Barrett retained his championship, that means that he …

WWE Superstars 4-11-13: The Great Khali Stands Tall

On this edition of WWE Superstars, it was a family affair when brothers The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) took on cousins Primo & Epico with Rosa Mendes in their corner with The Usos coming out on top. I have been saying for quite some time now that The Usos are way overdue for a reign as WWE Tag Teams Champions and after this victory, The Usos should definitely be the next ones to get an opportunity at Team Hell No’s (Kane & Daniel Bryan) WWE Tag Team Championships. As for the main event of this week’s program, The Great Khali with Natalya & Hornswoggle in his corner took on one-half of The Primetime Players in Darren Young with the other half of The Primetime Players, Titus O’Neil, in his corner. Despite some interference from O’Neil, Darren Young was unable to put away Khali and Khali was victorious in the end.…

Day 1 of WWE WrestleMania Axxess gets a dose of NXT

During Day 1 of WrestleMania Axxess, numerous WWE Superstars, Divas, and Legends were on hand to meet and greet members of the WWE Universe. The superstars featured were Sin Cara, CM Punk, Mark Henry, and United States Champion Antonio Cesaro. The divas included were AJ Lee and Rosa Mendes. One legend that was featured was WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka. Also, there were a few NXT matches that took place. Paige went one-on-one with Summer Rae, Bo Dallas faced off with Corey Graves, and Xavier Woods took on Dante Dash.…

Kiss My Foot Matches Between the Women

The Rule of a Kiss My Foot Match is that the loser of the match must kiss the winner’s feet. Throughout wrestling history, WWE has had two Kiss My Foot Matches that featured the men, but have never had any between the women. However, there was one Kiss My Foot Match between the women that took place at WWE’s Developmental Territory in late 2007, but it was kind of only one-sided because only one of the women in the match had the opportunity of getting her feet kissed by her opponent. When the men have Kiss My Foot Matches, it’s a pretty disturbing sight, but if the women had them, the sight would be much better. Bottom line, I think there should be more Kiss My Foot Matches between the women in any wrestling company.…
