It was Raw is Ambrose last night on Monday Night Raw, with the new champion Dean Ambrose getting a lot of exposure at Raw.
I knew they would do a triple threat match at Battleground with Seth Rollins Vs. Roman Reigns Vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE title. I think they should have kept this match till Summerslam, but lets see how this all plays out. I think we are going to get a lot of shield vs. shield matches out of this.
The Wyatt Family returned last night and The New Day interrupted their in ring promo. And it seemed that Xavier Woods of The New Day was hypnotized with the words of Bray Wyatt. Will The Wyatt family control The New Day into losing ….Time will tell…..We will be back next week with more …See you in the ring…Here are some highlights of the night :
The WWE put on their latest PPV show on The WWE Network last night with Extreme Rules and it was a entertaining show. Going into Extreme Rules, I wasn’t that excited for it as the buildup for it wasn’t really the best. A lot of matches seemed forced, but the matches themselves were very entertaining and the show was fast and fun. Of course the Extreme according to the WWE could have been a little bit more, but the guys and gals put on a good show.
The highlight of the show for me was the fatal four way match which saw Kevin Owens Vs. Sami Zayn Vs. Cesaro Vs. The Miz. With Cesaro, Owens and Zayn battling it out, it brought me back to the good old Ring Of Honor Days when they were Kevin Steen , El Generico and Claudio . The excitement was great in this match with many attempted pin falls. It was classic wrestling story telling. I’m glad The Miz won, as I like him as champion and he makes a great heel that all the guy have to chase for the title. I hope Steen, Zayn and Cesaro eventually get their IC title runs.
The Asylum match with Chris Jericho Vs. Dean Ambrose was good, it could have been a bit more violent with some maybe flaming tables or something different. The thumb tacks in the ring brought me back to the days of Mick Foley. It was good to see Jericho take a bump into the thumbtacks like that as he’s never really done any extreme stuff in the ring. Ambrose needed this win to keep his momentum up, and maybe Jericho is going off on his yearly hiatus from WWE.
The championship match was a tough match with lots of tables breaking and all. I think the WWE should just keep Reigns as a tough to be monster instead of trying to give him a fake personality that doesn’t work for him. He was monster-like in this match vs AJ Styles and this Roman Reigns is who the WWE Universe wants to see, leave the John Cena stuff to John Cena. It was great to see Seth Rollins come back at the end of the match. I see Seth winning the title at WWE Summerslam that takes place in Brooklyn New York.
All in all Extreme Rules lived up to its name and the WWE did a solid job, I just hope they keep it up in the upcoming weeks. Here are some highlights of some of the matches last night :
The WWE did their final WWE RAW before their Extreme Rules PPV on The WWE Network. It was just another Monday Night EH to me, as i’m not that excited to see the Extreme Rules show this Sunday night. What I did like was Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn teaming up against The Miz and Cesaro, that gave me a great flashback to the ROH days. The New Day in their “Time Machine” was entertaining as they always are. But there is something lacking in the promos or something nowadays in WWE. Maybe with the returns of John Cena, Rollins, Orton and more soon, business might pick up. We will be back with our Extreme Rules Recap……Here are some Monday Night Raw clips and we will see you in the ring!!!
