Bray Wyatt stole the show again. What a shock.
Rollins sneaked out to take us where he summarized PPV as a good little baby cover. And when it came to Wyatt's involvement in Clash of the Champions, Wyatt appeared grinning innocently at the Firefly Fun house.
And what Wyatt said really intrigues me. He seems to give us a motive to continue after Rollins. In the past, Rollins did terrible things. He betrayed Shield, turned his back on the crowd, followed the orders of Triple H … and yet Rollins was forgiven for his actions. In essence, he could repent and receive forgiveness from the people.
Wyatt, on the other hand? He is in this place, like purgatory, suffering from the voices in his head and whatever the Fairy does.
And think about the first episode of The Funny House. Wyatt apologized immediately for his past affairs … and yet there is no forgiveness for him, is there? There is no peace. And so Wyatt can't let Rollins go unpunished. After all, Misery enjoys company.
The use of the Rolins Genealogy was actually some really good prediction. This reminds us of his past and he will pay for these sins.
Fast forward to the end of the show and that's exactly what happened. Rollins accumulated heels as Kane came out to save. You know, Kane, who helped Rollins when he was a puppet.
And right then Fiend struck. Wyatt easily dropped Kane before crawling toward Rollins, who was shaking in the corner of the ring. Rollins closed his eyes as Wyatt laughed at the show.
Wyatt can literally no longer do anything wrong. It's amazing
Ah, man. What to say?
I was impressed by Baron Corbin throughout the King of the Ring finale. He was great in his role and really helped Chad Gable get the cheers he deserved to the end. This match was the highlight of the night in terms of the real fight. They had time to work a longer match, cool lighting to enter the match and all that. They deserved it too.
So with that said, I'm not necessarily angry that Corbin won. I just came to terms with the fact that I'm probably going to hate what's coming.
Corbin has always been an arrogant hero and one who picks younger boys to get where he wants … except that he has always been short in the past. He was such an unbearable presence as Constable near the end that the McMahons generally threw him under the bus in that "hey, we'll be better" segment, but long ago
and look at it now. Nothing has changed. He is the same person with the same disposition, except that he has a shiny crown to back his nonsense.
I'm happy that at some level it won. Corbin is a really solid talent for the WWE and he is stepping up when he is needed in the past.
But if he goes the route I suppose he goes … I'll hate him.
"Beta Cup …"
Good WWE. Let's talk here.
You have your own anti-bullying campaign, right? This campaign aims to help children learn how to understand each other. Your programming is also intended for children, meaning you have a responsibility to know some value.
Which brings me to this Kanellis nonsense. What are they even going for?
Maria had a sex revelation party where she announced that her baby would be a boy. She also said that the child was actually Ricochet, who made the poor man stutter and deny it to no avail. Mike clapped him and challenged him to a match that Ricochet won.
Ricochet's involvement in this does not bother me at all. He was charmingly uncomfortable and tried to be a cool head in all this. The problem (s) was Titus & Neal and Street Profits, chasing him and making stupid jokes at Maria's expense.
That's just rude, man. If you are talking about such women, stop. Please . And then the frightened Rusev of all men was revealed when his father and Mike rolled over because of the man trying to get out of the fight. And then Graves released the "picking" line, which is as much garbage as it gets.
Do you know why in my daily life I don't tell people I'm watching a fight, WWE? That. It bothers me that I even have to look through this nonsense.
Sasha Banks and Bailey def. Nicky Cross and Alexa Bliss – It's interesting how they booked this game. I guess WWE didn't want the heels to win cleanly over the champions, so Bailey showed her evil side by breaking Bliss's leg;
The story here is that after Banks was preparing to break Cross with a chair after the match, Becky Lynch came out with her own chair to make a save. Pretty soon all the Four Horsewomen were out with chairs. Consider a battle line drawn.
OF def. Cedric Alexander, The Viking Raiders – It was a fun opening game, but it's quickly becoming a trend, right? Alexander is the act of discovery. This shows that WWE trusts him to open performances on a high note.
I just would like to turn into some victories.
Ray Mysterio Def. Cesaro – another buyout game for Ray Mysterio. I love who they choose for these duels and I like the fact that this is a simple story to look forward to every week. We know we will have a fun, moderate-length match on Mysterio on Monday. This is solid.
Braun Strowman sends the tag teams shaking – he is saddened by the loss of the Universal Championship match again and takes it out to The Revival, Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. It was just something that was.
Kane wins, loses 24/7 championships – I didn't like it mainly because I live in Memphis and I hate the University of Tennessee. Get the Neyland Stadium and that orange orange from my TV.
I'm kidding, obviously. It was good for what it was.
Lacey Evans def. Dana Brooke – These two had a short game just before the main event. Evans wins with Sharpshooter, so I guess she and Natalia are fighting.
I think I need to start being a little harsher with my ranking.
This episode was good, for the most part. I'm all about Wyat, of course, but I have no emotional attachment to Rollins. Banks vs. Lynch in the cell should be shaken, but beyond that? Everything feels the same.
If it wasn't for Wyatt, that rate would have been lower. Too raw, Cageside?
