The Undertaker returned at SmackdownLive with a warning for the SmackdownLive team…..This is a buildup for Survivor Series and maybe Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania……
With the countdown and return of WWE Hell In A Cell show on October 30th, this show can work out as one of the best shows of the year. The card this year is stacked with Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins and Charlotte Vs. Sasha Banks in the first ever women’s Hell In A Cell title match. I will have a full preview and predictions as time gets closer to the events. Here are some of the best highlights of WWE Hell In A Cell through the years :
Two solid shows from WWE this week….Raw with the return of Goldberg and the rise of James Ellsworth on SmackdownLive. The WWE shows are finally finding their feel as different brands. The WWE Hell In The Cell looks like a solid card that is coming at the end of the month. Rumor has it that Goldberg will face Lesnar at Survivor Series, i’m like EH about that because the hype of this match should be handled at The Royal Rumble or Mania. Well Here are the highlights of SmackdownLive and RAW!!!!
WWE 2K17 released this past week by the WWE and 2K is the game that could have been great. It’s an entertaining game and the moves and the likeness of the characters are flawless , its just the lack of innovation from the previous 2K16 is major. Here are the pro’s and con’s of WWE 2K17.
The Pro’s :
- The characters moves, the moves on the wrestlers are flawless it feels like you are in a real WWE ring. The characters seem faster in the ring than in previous versions. This is one thing I do really like about the game.
- They did away with the quest to Wrestlemania and they have incorporated it into the WWE Universe for the game. This has streamlined the game and made it fun to play, as you guide through the months with Raw and Smackdown on your way to Wrestlemania.
The Con’s :
- Same old same old story lines in the game in the Universe mode. The characters turn on each other but all the stories and moves of these are just from 2K16. There is no innovation as they just copy 2K16 down to the same commentators of Cole and Lawler and Lawler hasn’t worked RAW or Smackdown in at least a year. What happened to the new WWE announcers , also would have been great to have some backstage interviews with the wrestlers before the matches started, or just some backstage drama.
- The game needs to feel like you are a part of the WWE and they need to incorporate all the things that I described up above. Backstage segments or have during Raw a highlight reel with Jericho or something to make it more exciting for the player, instead of the same old thing.
There you have it WWE 2k17 a good game but they could have made it great with just some more . Hopefully WWE 2k18 has more interaction for the home player, I just hope so .
Good show last night from the WWE SmackdownLive crew. No Mercy was probably this month’s best WWE show….The best matches of the night were definitely The Intercontinental Title match with The Miz losing to Dolph Ziggler. Hopefully WWE does something interesting with Ziggler, as he’s been boring for wayyyy to long. The world title match was good as AJ Styles scored a pinfall and beat up John Cena again. I think Cena will get his 17th title at Mania and then hang it up. Here are some of the highlights of No Mercy :
WWE Raw and SmackdownLive Recap for the week of 9/5/16 :
I’m still not thrilled about the brand extension, Its WWE overkill with just too much. Two ppvs a month, its just too much WWE.
I am liking that Kevin Owens is the Universal Champion, but I don’t like that they are making it look like he’s Triple H’s golden boy, I wish he would have beaten Rollins fair without Triple H’s interference. I also like the team up with Owens and Jericho, they are very entertaining.
The rest of Raw was just EH….With a lot of squash matches with Stroman and Nia Jax. Here are some of the WWE highlights :
WWE SmackdownLive wasn’t as good as Raw and was just Eh this week……The Uso’s turned heel and I think its a good move as they are boring as babyfaces….I think with the hell turn Uso’s will win the titles as they need heel champs for a bit on SmackdownLive
Dean Ambrose/Aj Styles feud is boring and I hope AJ wins the title, as he would be a great champion.
Here is the SmackdownLive highlights :
Wow what a week in the WWE, with Battleground and RAW and SmackdownLIve debuting their new rosters it was a fans dream come true. The highlight of Battleground without a doubt was the Sami Zayn Vs. Kevin Owens match as Sami Zayn got his long waited win over Kevin Owens. These two could fight every week and I’d watch every moment. Battleground was a good show and a good preview of things to come at Summerslam. Dean Ambrose kept the WWE title with a pin on Roman Reigns, who returned from his 30 day suspension looking a little chunkier than when he left. Lay off those cheeseburgers Roman.
Raw started off with a new logo and opening and felt brand new with the new roster. Finn Balor won over Roman Reigns and now Balor goes one on one with Seth Rollins for the new WWE Universal Championship at Summerslam. I like the way the WWE is going with Raw and i’m sure as we get closer to Summerslam we are going to have some really good matches. Bring it on !!!!!
SmackdownLive was also very good, with the new roster and the highlight was Dolph Ziggler getting the win and now gets to take on Dean Ambrose for the WWE Title at Summerslam. Summerslam looks to be as big as Mania this year…Bring it on from Brooklyn.
Here are some of the highlights of Battleground, Raw and SmackdownLive .. See you next week in the ring!!!!
