here is the on demand version of our three hour show even with technical difficulties
I am loving what WWE is doing with 205 live, they are booking Neville in the right direction. What is going to make it more sweeter is when Aries challenges him for the championship at Wrestlemania, The reason why I’m saying this is because while I was watching 205 live I noticed they brought up during the Neville and perkins match that either Aries and Neville weren’t participants in the Cruiserweight Classic. I am waiting for Neville versus Aries because that is a dream match that I want to happen, the possibility of it happening and it being for the cruiserweight championship will be the added cherry on top. Fastlane is going to be in Aries hometown, that is where I can see they plant the seeds for the feud.
Now with NXT I could see Authors of Pain losing the titles at Takeover Mania 2, because I feel they will be the enforcers for Triple H’s new heel stable along with Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens. The question is going to be who will be the team to dethrone them, the answer is actually simple it going to be D.I.Y because I see a triple threat tag team match between them, The Revival, and Authors of Pain. Because I have a feeling Authors of Pain will go to raw, and The Revival will be the team that goes to smackdown. D.I.Y will have the tag team title reign that will break the Ascensions reign, speaking of lengthy title reigns, Asuka is going to have hers broken at Takeover Mania 2, people are wondering who is going to defeat Asuka for the championship, It will be Ember Moon who will Eclipse Asuka reign.
Let me know what you think WWE might do, because you never know they could be watching to see what people are thinking.
Here is last night K-Trey Show
I am doing my blog for predictions, I am going to be doing them the way I used to do prediction blogs.
NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura defending against Bobby Roode
Prediction: “Glorious” Bobby Roode
Why: This is the perfect time to start the transition into the Glorious era of NXT, Shinsuke is ready to be on the main roster. Personally I can see Nakamura being a surprise entrant into the Royal Rumble. You can have Roode win the championship at the rumble, then they could have the rematch at the takeover “Mania” edition.
NXT Women’s Champion Asuka defending against Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, and Nikki Cross in a fatal four-way match
Why: I honestly think they will have Ember Moon be the one to defeat the undefeated empress Asuka at Takeover Mania 2, I wouldn’t be shocked if they took the title off of her, but I could see Payton Royce and Billie Kay pulling off a screw job finish where they have each other take the lost so they can have the women’s Championship. In the end, I still think Asuka nearing 300 day reign as women’s champion will be intact after this match.
NXT Tag Team Champions DIY defending against The Authors of Pain
Why: their is a wildcard to this victory, The Revival do have a contractual rematch clause which is going to be why they are going to screw over Authors of Pain by getting them disqualified setting up for D.I.Y and Revival for takeover Mania 2. I understand that people are going to say Authors of Pain are going to win the championships, I honestly don’t think they are ready for them yet, because you still need a team like D.I.Y to lead the division which is lacking because of the injury that takes TM61 out of the title scene for a while
Roderick Strong vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas
Prediction: Andrade Almas
Why: I know this is a battle of wrestlers that were big outside of WWE, but Andrade needs a big victory to push him towards the NXT title picture, and I honestly think this victory could get him some buzz. Roderick will be fine with a loss to Almas, if Roderick won the match, I would be worried about the direction they are going for Almas. Personally I think he needs to build him a stable like he had in CMLL and New Japan called Los Ingobernables, that is something that he really needs to happen to be the star that he was outside of WWE.
Eric Young vs. Tye Dillinger
Prediction: Eric Young
Why: Sanity is going to be the biggest factor in this match, because their is no way for Tye to overcome the four on one numbers game, this could be their way of writing out Tye Dillinger time at NXT by being destroyed by sanity.
NXT returned back to Full Sail Arena, as the show started off with Nikki Cross of Sanity taking on Kennedy Lewis, boy if you thought that the size difference between Kennedy and Cross would have caused a problem for Cross? that is where you are mistaken because Cross dominated the match from beginning to the end. Nikki Cross could be a potential woman’s champion in the future on NXT once Asuka leaves to the main roster. The Revival had an interview about their future in NXT, as they were Interrupted by TM61. Scott Dawson stated that it would be easy to win by pinfall or submission, what is going to be good is to end your careers.
Roderick Strong vs Steve Cutler this match was a match that I really enjoyed, because this match was hard hitting, and it showed off Steve and Roderick in positive ways despite Cutler losing to Roderick, I see potential in Cutler. Now it is going to be interesting to see how Roderick faces off against Andrade Cien Almas at Takeover San Antonio. Liv Morgan challenges Ember Moon to a match for next week on NXT. this is going to be interesting to see how this match will play out to lead up to Takeover Mania weekend. Honestly I can picture Asuka facing Ember Moon for the championship
Tye Dillinger started to talk about what his future is going to be in 2017, while the fans started to chant Royal Rumble and number 10 right after that. He also started talking about how he let William Regal and the fans down, then he was interrupted by Sanity,they went out to the ring to try to get him to join the faction, but Tye says no once which set off Alexander Wolfe. Which caused Eric Young to try and talk sense into Tye but Tye wasn’t buying into what Eric was pitching because he turned down Sanity offer once again. Then Tye started to attack Eric Young and Alexander Wolfe. Right when Tye was going to hit Eric young with his finisher then Big Damo who is now known as Killian Dain spears Tye in half which leads Eric asking Dain to join Sanity, after Dain hit Tye with his version of the one winged Angel which is a move of Kenny Omega was this WWE version of trolling the fans since the rumble is getting close and that is one name being thrown around that fans and WWE talent want in the rumble?
TM61 vs The Revival this was the Main Event match of the night before the actual Main Event of the show which was the contract signing. The Revival kept their word about ending their career because TM61 got the surprise victory over the revival which lead to Dash and Dawson to attack TM61 injuring Shane Thorn after hitting the shatter machine on Nick Miller, while the fans chanted one more time for them to hit the shatter machine. Instead they hit their ode to Tully and Arn Anderson finisher then hitting the double foot stomp to Shane Thorn leg while be in a modified Texas cloverleaf.
Now let’s get to the moment of the hour, the contract signing for the NXT Championship between the “Glorious” Bobby Roode and “King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura. Roode started off the contract signing saying that it wasn’t going to be like the other contract signings that lead into the chaos in the ring. Roode started bashing Shinsuke Nakamura saying he has no style that his clothes are from the thriller closet. And he doesn’t understand his dance moves.
It doesn’t shock me that the Nakamura got the fans chanting the Japanese term for wet dog toward Roode, then Roode started talking about his three step plan that he had when he signed with NXT, the first step was changing how the wrestlers in the back dressed, the second step was getting the fans to change their lifestyle to fit more of Roode style, and third was winning the NXT championship so the NXT Championship can be ……. That is right when Shinsuke put his hand up and stopped Roode from finishing his catchphrase. Then Shinsuke Nakamura starts to say Roode won’t be taking the championship and it will be GLORIOUS. And that is how NXT ends with a stare down between both contenders.
WWE just brought a new show called bring it to the table, this is a show that is hosted by Peter Rosenberg. This is their version of shows like First Take where JBL and Paul Heyman debate topics such as Conor McGregor, Raw being three hours. I actually enjoyed the first episode seeing Paul heyman debate JBL on the topics while they also bash Peter in a joking way.
I could actually see this being better then First Take, and Skip Bayless show on Fox Sports One. because their is a chemistry with the three that you wouldn’t think was their when you first heard of the show concept. In reality this show is going to be one of the best things that will bring revenue to the network and get people to watch their product that is not wrestling shows like Raw, Smackdown, 205 live, NXT, and Pay Per Views.
When Paul Heyman praised John Cena calling him the best ever in terms of how he is on the road juggling wrestling, reality television, and being on television shows as host, their. Now there’s one thing that i would like to see added to the show, they should allow fans to have twitter interaction with the panel to see what they think on questions that aren’t on the show.
comment below and let me know what you thought of the show, and would you watch more shows like this by WWE?
NXT was back at Full Sail university where the main event was the fatal four way elimination match to determine who was going to be the #1 contender for the NXT championship at Takeover San Antonio, the four men in the match are “Glorious one” Bobby Roode, Roderick Strong, Andrade Cien Almas, and Ty Dillinger. The show started off with Billie Kay with Payton Royce vs daria berenato, I honestly thought that this was a match to showcase Daria as a legit badass in the ring, this match turned out to be a set up for Billie Kay to win even though Daria did look like she was legit going to break Billie in half with her strikes and punches and kicks. So after the match Peyton and Billie told the NXT women’s division that Daria was going to be the outcome of anyone who steps towards Billie and Payton because they run the division. Now who does this remind me of oh that is right Emma and Dana Brooke right before they both got called up to the main roster.
Authors of Pain came out and laid out an enhancement tag team then Paul Ellering got on the mic and said they are on the road to San Antonio they don’t care if Revival or D.I.Y has the tag team titles they are coming to take over and win the NXT tag team championships. Backstage shows Asuka being interviewed about Billie kay and Payton Royce’s comments, Asuka said they were no competition while Nikki Cross was looking on as the cameras pan towards her, Could Nikki Cross be Asuka next challenger for the women’s championship? I sure hope so because i think a program between the two would be epic for the women’s division. Recap of how the four wrestlers made it to the fatal four way match for the chance at facing Shinsuke Nakamura at Take over San Antonio.
Bobby Roode won the fatal four way elimination match to become the number one contender for the NXT Championship. Now that is a match i can’t wait to see because the entrances between those two will be GLORIOUS. The order of the eliminations went Andrade “Cien” Almas was the first one eliminated by Roderick Strong. Strong was eliminated by Ty Dillinger when he was hit with the Ty Breaker. Dillinger was eliminated by Bobby Roode. The final two was epic, I actually thought Dillinger could have won the number one contendership.
Now let’s take you on the ride into the temple with Lucha Underground where you have a Lucha Underground Championship match between Sexy Star and Johnny Mundo. Inside of a cage.
First match was the final round of the battle of the bulls tournament between PJ Black, Willie Mack, Cage, and Jeremiah Craine. Cage reversed a Doomsday Device from PJ Back and Willie Mack into a powerslam off mack shoulders. This match is action packed and intense, cage was the first one eliminated thanks to Texano interference and the rest of the guys hitting their finishers on cage with PJ Black getting the pinfall. Jeremiah Crane was the second one eliminated when he took a stunner from the mack from the top rope. Willie Mack won the Battle of The Bulls Tournament by defeating PJ Black.
Cameras cut to Aerostar and Fenix searching for Drago, then gets into a battle with Cobra Moon and her squad as they destroy Fenix and Aerostar as she said the next time it will be done by her Drago. The camera switches to Mack and Sexy Star talking before her match against Johnny Mundo, then it cuts to Jeremiah Crane asking for a match against Mil Muertes for next week then he found his board he put in the ceiling of the office when he was a kid, then runs into Katrina where he tells her next week he will defeat Mil so he can have Katrina to himself.
Main Event time as Johnny Mundo takes on sexy Star inside of the Cage, this match was awesome, these two working against each other, they make each other better inside of the ring, they have went back and forth, this match was a match that people that don’t watch lucha underground needs to watch, Mundo retains the title by pulling off Sexy Star mask and climbing the cage to get the victory. After the match willie Mack attacks Mundo because he is the number one contender for the championship.
The show ends with Drago in chains as Cobra Moon asking if Drago ready to call her Queen, he says never and that he would starve, she said in time a dragon needs to eat.
