So after watching this past weekend’s NXT TakeOver XXV, I felt it appropriate to write up another one of these. For those of you who are in various Facebook groups with me, some of this may sound familiar, but I figured I’d post it here as well and expand upon it.
So I was about to post this to Facebook as a short “Go out of your way to watch this!” type of post, but as I kept typing, I realized I really needed to add it here.
Another dare I say “phenomenal” documentary type of production piece from WWE centering on following a single WWE Superstar’s life over the course of 365 days,
So last night, while recording Revival Radio, we kind of ran out of time and didn’t get to talk much about this weekend’s Survivor Series Pay Per View event. So I figured maybe I’d just do a writeup. This weekend’s shows should provide quite a lot of great matches for us fans to watch on the WWE Network! The NXT group starts the weekend off on Saturday night with the latest TakeOver event in which a gimmick match we haven’t seen in 20 years when SAnitY, The Authors of Pain with Roderick Strong & The Undisputed Era face off inside two rings surrounded by a cage in War Games.
Along with that awesome attraction, they’re giving us an NXT Title match between defending champion, Drew McIntyre & Andrade “Cien” Almas and will also determine a new NXT Womens Champion when Nikki Cross, Ember Moon, Peyton Royce & Mae Young Classic Tournament winner, Kairi Sane face off for the title that Asuka vacated upon leaving for Monday Night Raw. Other matches include: Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan and Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream. A pretty stacked card that also includes for the live audience, a match for the WWE UK Title when Pete Dunne defends his title against Johnny Gargano. For us not attending, that match will air on NXT next Wednesday and it’s sure to be another great match!
But on to my original purpose for writing today…this year’s Survivor Series card is seriously stacked! I mean let’s break this thing down and just marvel at the show that we’re about to witness on Sunday night, shall we?
So it’s been a little while since I’ve written one of these up about wrestling, but to be honest…there really hasn’t been a whole lotta good stuff worth writing about lately. I mean WWE’s been doing an alright job at giving us some fresh matches like when they pulled AJ Styles off the South America tour to fill in for an ill Bray Wyatt at the last Pay Per View or reforming The Shield…but for whatever reason, I just haven’t had the motivation to write about the product — until now.
Monday night, after Raw went off the air, WWE aired another installment of their documentary series WWE 24 on the WWE Network. If you haven’t seen any of these pieces, please go out of your way to find them as they’re some of the best programming WWE puts out. This latest edition of the show revolves around last year’s return of Bill Goldberg to the world of professional wrestling.
Dee and I are back to talk about what’s happened over the last two weeks in the professional wrestling world: Randy Orton’s injury, WWE Hell In A Cell, the details of WWE’s investment in Tapout and Hulk Hogan’s final WCW contract from 1998 among other things. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll probably even read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!
Let me preface what I’m about to write about with this: Money In The Bank was on Sunday night, it’s now Wednesday morning and I still don’t 100% have my thoughts fully organized for this column, so please just bear with me as I put it all out here…
