Can't believe this hasn't been talked about yet, but CM Punk and Seth Rollins teamed up to face the Kings of Wrestling (Cesaro/Ohno) in a dark match on Aug. 23. It was the show that CM Punk appeared on. Does anyone have any video of this? Talk about ROH dream match in the WWE.
Kruger and Ohno could be fun team. I like them taking people out anyway.
Do you need some sort of great beard to join the Wyatt family? Rowan looked okay in the ring, as much as you can in a squash. Like Wyatt's "follow the buzzards" line. Camacho can't talk for shit, tedious segment with him and Dusty. Looking forward to Big Show smashing in Bo Dallas, the best thing Dallas can do is sell a beating so it'll be the most I enjoy him for a while. Mahal/Rollins was alright, Mahal seems to have improved since I last saw him.
I reviewed the show in my blog with pics/gifs/quotes.
Paige vs Sasha Banks(debut)
Oliver Grey vs Rowan aka Erick Rowan(debut)
NXT Title - Seth Rollins vs Jinder Mahal
Overall thoughts: Decent show with some really bad commentary and a good promo from Roman Reigns. Reigns' promo was worth checking out and you can probably skip the rest. I hope Tom Phillips goes away ASAP.
Hell yeah, The Wyatt Family is growing nicely. Rowan looks more like Charlie Bronson more than Bronson (the wrestler) does! Albeit a ginger version. He also dresses like a binman which I don't think suits him to well. Nevertheless, really wondering where they take this group now.
Never thought I'd mark out for Erick Rowan but that whole segment was so awesome. The Wyatt Family is one of the most sinister things I've seen in WWE, I love the way Bray Wyatt introduces the new members and can't wait for them to debut on the main roster. Imagine a feud between them and Ascension, too bad Cameron had to blow it
The championship match was pretty good but hopefully this is the last of the 'alternate reality' episodes, it's been really off-putting for the last few weeks.
So is Harper a trucker and Rowen a garbageman? Bray is some messiah to working class stiff lost souls? They should have a small guy who could be the Mcdonalds/fast food burger flipper. Hell that could be the role for Corey Graves!!
