Maybe I'll do the big year end post this year. I guess I usually do a response to the Marshall's, but I could type one out when I'm down in Ashland in a few days. In the meantime....
Big Cass vs. Rusev
So this is the preshow match. If you aren't paying attention....Enzo got nekkid backstage and ended up seeing Lana. Rusev, of course, was offended by the nekkid man around "his" lady. The next week, Lana and Rusev pretended to have a fight to trick Enzo into coming to Lana's hotel room, only to have "The Only Man That Can Have Me" CRUSH! So yeah, Enzo is a complete creep. His big buddy is defending him. So Rusev is kind of the babyface (again) except for the collusion the couple attempted. Anyways, this is a big multi layered story and it continues on the preshow. Can't complain.
The New Day (Big E and/or Kofi Kingston and/or Xavier Woods) (c) vs. Cesaro and Sheamus
Now that they are the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions..I'm sure they will lose immediately. Something you might not know, the pretape in the bar with Cesaro and Sheamus a few weeks ago was actually a beat by beat remake of a scene from "The Wrestler." I guess it was Dick Murdoch and maybe Dusty Rhodes in the bar bonding over a bar fight. That being said....I still don't enjoy the reluctant tag team and wish Cesaro was in the main event scene of that other WWE show.
|Sami Zayn vs. Braun Strowman|
So every week Sami and Mick yell at each other. Braun can't tell the difference between various weaklings. Can "The Underdog From The Underground" do it? BTW...the internet/podcasts have been saying they aren't into this storyline because Mick has been doing passionate yelly promos. Why is Mick Foley and Sami Zayn so closely connected? Maybe I'm reading too much into this. We'll see.....
Rich Swann (c) vs. T.J. Perkins vs. The Brian Kendrick
These guys all have wins over each other. Perkins beat Swann, Swann beat Kendrick, and Kendrick beat Perkins (I think that's how it goes....I hardly pay attention to these matches). This might be good? I'm not that into it.
