Turning Point?

Share this article:

RAW – A Cruiserweight feud outside the Title picture? (Jack Gallagher vs. Ariya Daivari) it looks like it, finally! Add to that a blossoming romance between Alicia Fox & Cedric Alexander and we might be getting somewhere. The seeds of Seth Rollins vs. HHH have been planted. Chris Jericho vs. Seth Rollins at WWE Roadblock: End Of The Line – that will do nicely. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn was superb (as expected), just wish Zayn won (not just for my Fantasy Wrestling World team). Enzo & Lana was not PG. Jericho vs. Roman Reigns (c) for WWE U.S. Title was a quality match, the result irked me, Jericho should of won. Hoping they don’t rush Jericho vs. Owens (c) for WWE Universal Title for the Royal Rumble, that is your Wrestlemania money match. Charlotte vs. ‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks (c) in a 30 Minute Iron Woman Match for WWE Raw Women’s Title at WWE Roadblock: End Of The Line – YES!

SDLive – Ambrose gets revenge on Ellsworth straight away. Did Natalya attack Nikki? Breeze vs. Gable was good (for the time given), a big fan of The Chaos Theory finishing move, just wish it was British Wrestling Icon Doug Williams performing it. Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch feud has rocked my socks! Bliss has been the Star of SD Live since the brand split. Cracking WWE I.C. Title match between Dean Ambrose & The Miz w/Maryse (c) and Ellsworth angers Ambrose yet again.

Talking Smack – Big talking point – The End of RHYNO & Heath Slater?

205 Live – Feels like a turning point for the Cruiserweight Division. By my count we have five feuds in the Division now. Daivari vs. Gallagher, Alexander vs. Dar, Kendrick vs. Swann, TJP vs. Aries (possibly) and TJP vs. Swann. That’s three feuds outside of the Cruiserweight Title picture which means the days of random matches for the sake of matches might finally be a thing of the past. Dar vs. Alexander was a super match, I loved Dar’s dissection of Alexander’s arm. Enjoyed Daivari’s offense on Gallagher’s leg and Swann vs. Kendrick was another very good match, between the two.

  • Best episode of 205 Live (so far) and a real opportunity to turn the stuttering Cruiserweight Division around.

WWENXT – ‘Showtime’ Percy Watson is back – on commentary. Big Damo (from the UK Scene) debuts, The Revival vs. #DIY (c) NXT Tag Titles rematch is booked (11th January 2017), winners take on Authors Of Pain at NXT Takeover: San Antonio. Tye Dillinger is entered into NXT Title #1 Contenders Situation (Four singles matches, winners fight in Elimination Four Way, winner is new #1 Contender). Nikki Cross vs. Asuka? – Yes please! Kimber Lee on NXT – YES! Good NXT Title rematch between Shinsuke Nakamura & Samoa Joe (c) to end the show, another Title change! They will go again in a Steel Cage (this week).
