Here's my concept for a future NXT Takeover match: The Undisputed Era could build and develop into this unstoppable stable, and they are just destroying NXT matches left and right, then the lights go out after The Undisputed Era tear apart Full Sail and Trent Seven, Pete Dunne, and Tyler Bate are face to face with Cole,Fish, and O'Reilly. Then they start fighting each other and it gets to the point where William Regal announces that they will face off in a 6 Man Tag Team match at NXT Takeover. I think it would a sick NXT match/feud to have I mean imagine the singles match possibilities Pete vs. Adam, Trent vs. Fish, or Tyler vs. O'Reilly. All great matches on their own. But that's just my fantasy booking..
It was great to see Lana in the ring again pulling out some moves last night on SmackDown Live. If you follow her journey on Instagram and Total Divas, you would know that she's very determined to get better in the ring. I hope that she can do it and put an impressive performance at the Royal Rumble! 🤘
#WRSuperstarSpotlight Pete Dunne : I started to watch Pete Dunne much like I started to watch Aleister Black, bu watching PWG highlights, and while my viewing of him was spontaneous (here and there) until WCPW uploaded a match between him and Martin Kirby which I really liked, and from there I thought about looking into him more on Youtube and saw his match with Aleister Black and also his match with Jack Gallagher. And I became a major fan then as, if you have been following me for awhile you'd know I used to post Pete daily back when I would destroy your feed with posts. And pretty much ever since I watched some of his matches on Youtube and his matches with Tyler Bate, Pete has been my top 5 favorite wrestlers in recent memory. Not to mention I love his heel character and his style which happens to go with the hard hitting technical style that I love to see.
IMAGINE IF: Mandy Rose is booked as a dominant heel in 2018 with the backing of Absolution. Think...Evolution. Paige as the manager/mouthpiece , Mandy as the leader/HHH type and Sonya as the hotheaded superstar that will eventually outgrow the group and leave. @mandysacs
#IWPWeeklyReview : RAW 25, 01/23/18.
- RAW 25 Kicks off with 3 Stunners: Austin & McMahon kicking off the show was fitting. Everyone in the crowd loved every bit of it. Although it could've been a shorter segment, I enjoyed it. (A-)
- Absolution, Nia Jax & Alicia Fox vs. Sasha Banks, Mickie James, Bayley & Asuka: This was an OK match but much of a showcase for Asuka. Asuka's post-match addition showed us what she's capable of come Sunday. (C)
- Undertaker Returns: So many questions regarding Taker's status. He never officially retired but if this was his retirement, it wasn't as strong or emotional. (B)
- Intercontinental Championship: Reigns (c) vs. The Miz: This was an average match but hard-hitting. The crowd was really into the near falls. The Miz winning back the title was the right decision. (A-)
- Peep Show with Rollins & Jordan: There was little time for this but it was effective. We got some tension going on between the teams, but it wasn't entertaining. (C+)
- Wyatt vs. Woken Matt Hardy: Nothing happened here. It was just a match. Wyatt won. Next. (D)
- Elias Stands Tall: This is how you create a star. Elias & Cena feud can really help Elias become a major star. (B+)
- Titus Worldwide vs. Heath/Rhyno: This was filler. And although the Dudley's appearance was nice, Rhyno just watched his partner go through a table. (D)
- DX Reunion/Revival vs. Club: The Revival getting run over by both teams is not a good sign..Again nice seeing a DX reunion but it won't do any good for the other talent. (D)
- Brock Lesnar, Kane & Strowman Showdown: This was hurried. The other superstars at ringside did absolutely nothing. (C)
Best Match: Intercontinental Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. The Miz.
Best Segment: SCSA & the McMahons.
I watched RAW 25 again but this time I tried watching it critically. I will give my short review in a bit.. But who's excited for the Rumble? Haven't really been enjoying the build-up to any of the matches. Usos/Gable&Benjamin & the 2 Rumble matches should be fun but I'm not that excited for it. Hopefully it turns out to be a good show. Takeover:Philadelphia is also something I'm not that excited for..
