Following the hugely controversial ‘Blood & Guts’ Dynamite special last week, AEW looked to continue the momentum and keep it up as they moved towards their upcoming Pay-Per-View ‘Double Or Nothing’ on May 30th. Not only were they under pressure as the company faced some disappointment from fans the previous week, but they were also under significant pressure from New Japan Pro Wrestling, as the Japanese wrestling giant was allowing one of their titles to be defended on AEW Television for the first time, and this is looked at as a huge deal for them. So with so much pressure…

A championship night is here for NXT! This week’s NXT featured two gigantic championship matches. Raquel Gonzalez & KUSHIDA had to defend their titles facing their biggest enemies in NXT. A couple champions were having non title matches too against various opponents. This episode also mark the start of the build to NXT Takeover: In Your House II. GOOD: NXT started with The Doomsday and the current NXT Champion, Karrion Kross, facing one of the members of THE WAY, Austin Theory. This match overall was good and I thought the match was going to be a complete squash, but Theory…

It’s the go home show for Wrestlemania Backlash. Last week wasn’t good but was the best show since mania and this show looks to top that.  POOR: Raw started off with a 6 women tag match between Asuka, Mandy and Dana vs Charlotte Flair, Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax. The match was going okay but then Alexa Bliss’s playground interrupts and she says that she’s targeting “someone”. Team face wins after I think Alexa Bliss used superpowers?  RESULT- Asuka, Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose wins via pinfall. Aaron McKelvey WR star ratings- 1.75 Stars  GOOD: Riddle showed up backstage and…

After a long time with no new faces in the 205 Live Roster, this week, 205 Live featured two debuting wrestlers. Alex Zayne made his 205 Live debut under his new ring name, and Ikimen Jiro was a part of this episode too, in what was a decent episode of 205 Live. AVERAGE: A debuting Ari Sterling (FKA Alex Zayne!) battled with Samir Singh to kick off this episode of 205 Live. Zayne won the match and showed some of his unique offense, however, it was clear he’s only getting started. The match was fairly short and could have done…

This weeks edition of ROH Television was hoping to build off the momentum the show has had since the 500th episode a couple of weeks ago. GOOD: As always Quinn McKay kicked off ROH Television by hyping up the nights events as well as announcing next week she will be returning to in ring action herself or the first time in a long while. As per usual, this segment at the start of the show created excitement for what was to follow. GREAT: McKay then interviewed both Flamita and Bandido ahead of their match tonight. Bandido noted he hopes the…

This weeks episode of SmackDown was advertised as the ‘Throwback Edition’ with the show being heavily advertised across social media since it was announced last Friday. As with any special episode, fans expectations were higher than usual, but could SmackDown live up to the hype? GREAT: The show kicked off with an old fashioned style intro and this certainly helped the show feel special from the get go. It then cut to Michael Cole, dressed as a young version of himself, and Pat McAfee, dressed in a classic Vince McMahon attire, where they spoke about what would happen tonight. MUST…

Fans have been waiting over a year now to witness the highly anticipated Blood & Guts match type, and on this weeks edition of AEW Dynamite, it was finally time for the cage to lower, and the war to start! AVERAGE: To open the show Michael Nakazawa and Don Callis came out to announce that Kenny Omega was unable to make it to this edition of Dynamite, so Nakazawa would take on both men by himself. As Moxley and Kingston came out from the crowd, Kenny Omega jumped both men leading to the two on two tag match which was…

After a decent episode of NXT last week, they’ve prepared with some fire this week, because NXT this week was featured with a couple of matches with stipulation.

The Way is also ready to become the NXT Women’s tag team champion before even facing Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon. MUST WATCH: NXT started with a falls count anywhere match between Leon Ruff & Isaiah “Swerve” Scott. This match started quickly where both competitors gave their best to pin each other in the ring.…

However, NJPW is ready to give the wrestling fans a guaranteed bangers in the main event where Will Ospreay defended his IWGP World Heavyweight Title against The Dragon, Shingo Takagi. AVERAGE: We started the show with a…

After 3 really bad shows in a row, Monday Night Raw looks to bounce back with only two weeks left until wrestlemania backlash.  GOOD: Monday Night Raw started off with Sonya Deville, MVP and Adam Pearce. They’re trying to decide if Lashley would face Braun Strowman or Drew Mcintyre. Adam Pearce pulls out a coin to decide but before he was able to flip it MVP needed to check it first to see if it was not rigged. Drew Mcintyre walks in and asks MVP if Lashley is not concerned why would you be checking the coin. MVP then states…
