The Pro Wrestling Thread - No Gimmick Needed

The only things I enjoyed on this weekly RAW show were the Cena/Kevin Owens segment of course. The Cena/Cesaro match was pretty good too and I don't mind the finish at all. Gives reason for a future Owens/Cesaro match. The Paige/Bella Twins storyline does still have my attention because they have built it up to the point where someone has to help Paige eventually. The 8-man Tag Match was fun to watch and glad PTP are getting time to shine. I didn't hate the main event match either. Figured Ambrose would eat the pin but was cool to see Reigns get destroyed post-match.

We finally got a Jack Swagger sighting but similar to when we get a Zack Ryder sighting, it means he's jobbing. Poor Swagger. I don't care about the Big Show/Ryback stuff. And as mentioned before, the Ziggler/Lana thing continues to irk me every week. Rusev has come off looking like a face throughout this whole ordeal also because of his real injury too. I seriously want this angle to end....unless there's a double turn.

Segments I enjoyed this week on RAW were:

-Paige/Brie Bella match. I continue to wonder who will eventually help Paige. This storyline has done a great job of building that situation up.

-Reigns/Sheamus match was good but it's getting predictable with the Bray Wyatt stuff. I figured Wyatt was going to interfere with his mind games. Oh yeah, Randy Orton returns to attack Sheamus too. That was nice.

-Loved the beatdown Rusev gave on Ziggler. And with Summer Rae throwing Lana out of the ring. However, roles continue to look confusing here.

-Enjoyed Lesnar destroying J & J's car. He was looking like a boss out there. Just hope that door he tossed out didn't hurt someone badly. Seth Rollins' mic work was good all night.

-Lucha Dragons/New Day match was fine and glad New Day got the win.

-Very long match between Cena/Cesaro. Got a 15 minute overrun. It was entertaining but very predictable. Nothing big happened. Just Cena winning again. Much better show than last week.

BEST IN THE WORLD!!!
This was definitely a great weekend for wrestling:

Ferg (Finn Balor) winning the NXT title
Okada beating AJ Styles to win the IWGP Heavyweight title in an awesome match!
Kushida beating Kenny Omega to become the new IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion!

And Raw was in my home town, which I decided not to go to because WWE has been boring.

I totally agree about reDragon, I just don't get the point of kicking the guy in the back right before O'Riely hits the brainbuster.

Finally caught up with this week's RAW. Of course I enjoyed all the segments people are talking about which are debuts of Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks. Since I don't watch NXT I have no opinion of them but have heard great reviews about them. So hope they help spark up this Divas division. Of course I enjoyed the triple threat match with Cesaro looking amazing again. Rusev looked tired when he had to face Cena though but he had a great showing too. Glad we got a Stardust sighting too although I'm waiting for him to end the gimmick. And yeah, I enjoyed the contract signing. Lesnar gets to do more damage and poor Kane had to be the sacrificial goat this time. I am intrigued to see how Seth Rollins will overcome Lesnar on Sunday. Enjoyable RAW this week.

If some of you were wondering why they showed part of match from Slammiversary in IMpact tonight, there is a reason why. They had some potential lega issues with Lucha Underground that's going to cause them to rework this and the next few Imapct episodes.

http://www.pwinsider.com/article/95...hanges-to-impact-wrestling-tv-series.html?p=1

Short version is, it began with Hernandez, who was just paired up with the BDC. TNA signed him after he said he was free after filming the last episode of the season of LU. After filming several weeks, and airing a couple of episodes featuring him, of Impact LU sent word that Hernandez still had obligation with them therefore couldn't legally appear anywhere else. And because if this TNA has to edit out the BDC segment, and probably have to shot some segment with MVP and Kenny King or whoever they can get at a free moment. And they let go of Hernandez since they can't legally use him.

Let's be honest here, out of all the mistakes and mishaps TNA has made over the years this one wasn't their fault. They were going on Hernadez's word that he was free from LU. AND LU could have mention something sooner than what they did since they tape well in advance too.

They already announced that he'll be facing Tyler Breeze at Takeover. At this point nobody is sure if this is a one shot deal or something a bit more long term.
