Looking back to the beginning of 2012, this picture was taken of all the champions in WWE, which was meant to be a major shift to a new generation of wrestlers within WWE. I thought it might be fun to pick this picture apart & look at each individual’s career heights & where they are now.
As has been the case over the last few years…I haven’t really had a lot on my mind to write about, so I’ve limited my comments on the current state of wrestling to short posts on Facebook & Twitter, but there’s a lot of good stuff to write about now, so that’s why I’m back here today.
For those of you who are in our Facebook Group, WrestlingFansAnonymous or various other groups I might post to or follow me on Twitter, some of this might sound repetitive and for that, I’m sorry. But there’s a lot of stuff that’s happened in the world of Professional Wrestling over the last few weeks that I’d like to comment on, so please bear with me if I jump around a lot.
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?
