Despite some highlights, this wasn’t a great show. It felt like people were covering for lots of people who were taking vacation time, both wrestlers and writing staff.
Enzo Amore sort of promises a title shot to anyone on the Zo Train who impresses him tonight, but can any of them live up to his expectations?
After winning at Survivor Series, RAW started setting up new story lines with a big return and a big title match. They also jumped back into some other story lines that got put on hold during the buildup to Survivor Series.
SmackDown fires the first shot on the road to Survivor Series in a good and entertaining (if, at times, inexplicable) episode of RAW!
This year’s TLC had a couple of huge last minute changes that led to some interesting matchups, but overall the show was hit or miss. There were some great matches and moments, but there were just as many less than stellar matches and moments as well.
The Shield is united as they attempt to push back against The Miz and his “family,” Enzo shows that he does have some “friends” in the Cruiserweight division, Alicia Fox is tired of being disrespected, and more on the last RAW before TLC 2017.
The Shield reunites and Enzo Amore is forced to defend his title against Kalisto early in an alright episode of RAW.
This was an oddly paced, okay episode of RAW that had some good moments, but overall felt kind of forgettable.
TJP and Rich Swann add Tony Nese and Cedric Alexander to their “friendly competition” in a very good match on an okay episode of Live.
Cedric Alexander and Noam Dar settle their differences in an I Quit match on a very good episode of 205 Live.
Rich Swann faces TJP in some “friendly competition,” Jack Gallagher gets another chance to defeat Tony Nese, and Neville gives Titus O’Neil a message for Tozawa in a good episode of 205 Live.
This felt like another week of treading the same territory, but it was still a pretty good show highlighted by a very nice main event match between Rich Swann and Neville.
Cedric Alexander can’t seem to get away from Noam Dar and Alicia Fox , and Akira Tozawa faces TJP in the main event of a nice episode of 205 Live.
Wrestling seemed to take a back seat this week despite a main event featuring a two out of three falls tag title match.
TJP finally gets the title shot he’s been waiting for in an episode of 205 Live that also featured an apparently definitive end to the Dar/Alexander/Fox saga.
A good main event couldn’t help this year’s Extreme Rules from being only an average show. Some of the matches were not good at all and some were forgettable, but at least the show ended on a good note.
This felt like a pre-show for Extreme Rules (which it kind of is), but it still managed to have a couple of decent matches.
Money in the Bank continues to get shaped as Shane McMahon makes a historic announcement, New Day makes their SmackDown Live debut, and the competitors in the WWE Title Contract Money in the Bank match clash once again.
This was an okay show with a few good matches, but a handful of not so great matches and segments.
The Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa meet in a memorable street fight to try to settle their differences.
