The Five-Count: Dean Ambrose Returns, Sheamus vs. Cesaro, Night Of Champions Fallout, Ziggler’s Next Challenger

The Five-Count

Night of Champions is behind us and Hell in a Cell is just down the road. Fall storylines sometimes don’t have that intrigue that fans desire, so it’s always interesting to see what happens right now. WWE is scrambling around trying to get main event talent. Should this even be a problem? WWE has many, many talented workers worthy of working at the top. If you don’t know or remember what I’m talking about, here’s a reminder: CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Alberto Del Rio, Bad News Barrett, and Roman Reigns. What do they have in common? Well, they are either gone from the company or injured. This topic leads me to this next topic…

Superstar of the Week: Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns once again gets the spot of Superstar of the Week. Reigns won a handicap match against Seth Rollins and Kane by disqualification on Raw. Reigns went gain another disqualification victory over Bray Wyatt in the opening match on this week’s SmackDown. And finally, Reigns teamed with Big Show and Mark Henry to beat The Wyatt Family in the main event of SmackDown. Reigns is definitely being groomed to be the next top guy. I’ve found that some fans are creating their own bandwagon and bashing Reigns for every little thing. He isn’t “the guy” yet, he’s being groomed and prepared for that spot! Give him some time to develop fully and he will show us some incredible things very soon. [Read more...]

The Five-Count: Countdown To SummerSlam

The Five-Count

SummerSlam is finally upon us! It’s an exciting event and I look forward to every year. This year’s event has nine matches scheduled. We will see two divas matches, former friends face off in a Lumberjack match, two passionate wrestlers will battle in a Flag Match to prove whether America or Russia is stronger. And finally, John Cena and Brock Lesnar will clash in a must-see main event. It isn’t necessarily must-see for the ring work, but for the fact that the next several months lie in the decision of this match. So let’s break down this last week in WWE, shall we? [Read more...]

The Five-Count: Will Sheamus Unify Titles?, Swagger/Rusev, Battleground Predictions

The Five-Count

Battleground is tonight! I’ve stated over the last few weeks that they should’ve left this pay-per-view out and do the usual build to SummerSlam. It’s left WWE throwing things together, but I will say it’s looking to be a better show than I originally thought. Not only that, but I think the first big encounters between Jericho/Wyatt and Rollins/Ambrose should’ve been saved for the biggest event of the summer. I’m staying hopeful and we should see a good show tonight. Well without further ado, here’s a breakdown of the last week in WWE!

The Five-Count: Chris Jericho, Battleground, The Confusing Divas Division, & More

The Five-Count

Did anyone else feel like this week was kind of thrown together, but yet kind of in a good way? Just to recap, we seen Alberto Del Rio become number one contender to the United States Championship and then received a title match on Main Event. Paige and AJ successfully teamed up on Raw, but aren’t they supposed to be in a feud? Kofi got another win Cesaro on Raw. I love the idea of Cena vs. Seth Rollins, but it just feels weird to have the WWE Champion face Mr. MITB. Bo Dallas is feuding with Diego and El Torito. Rusev and Roman Reigns collided in the main event of SmackDown. We knew going into that match that neither will lose clean, so it had to end in disqualification. And during all of this, the WWE Network was free this week! Lots of things are changing, but I don’t know how I feel. Well there’s my little ramble to start things off, so it’s time to break down the past week in WWE! [Read more...]

My SummerSlam Main Event Part 1; Evaluating the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match

summerslam

Heading into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at Money in the Bank, the overwhelming assumption is that whoever walks out champion will go on to defend the title against a returning Daniel Bryan or a returning Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.  This is the first of a two-part article, in this half I’ll be telling you who you shouldn’t expect to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at Money in the Bank.  Next installment I’ll reveal who you I believe will win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  And whether I think it’ll be Daniel Bryan or Brock Lesnar challenging for the title at SummerSlam [Read more...]

My Disappointment With Money In The Bank

MITB

This year, Money In The Bank will include a ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. John Cena, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Sheamus, and Alberto Del Rio are the participants in this match. I am sure that it will be a great match, but I am disappointed with the lineup. I do not believe Del Rio or Sheamus deserve to be in the ladder match. In this article, I will tell you why I think they should be out of the match and who their replacements should be. If you agree with my opinion, or disagree with it, please leave a comment in the section below. I love hearing the feedback you guys give me so keep them coming. Now let’s get started!

The Five-Count: Cesaro And Sheamus Impress, But Who’s Leaving Payback With The Gold?

The Five-Count

Another week in the WWE has gone by and we are just hours away until Payback! I went out to Springfield, IL for a WWE Live Supershow last night, so be looking for a review of that later this week. Many people aren’t too satisfied with the Payback card, but I’m still staying positive about it as there looks to be some good wrestling. Well, why keep you waiting any longer, here’s this week’s Five-Count! [Read more...]

The Five-Count: Tag Team Match, Cesaro/Sheamus, No Live Programming

The Five-Count

WWE wrapped up their UK tour this weekend as we sit a week away from Payback. Four matches have been advertised and I can honestly say I am pleased with the card so far. Next Saturday night I will be attending my fifth WWE event and of course I’m excited. But as I sat here thinking about what I was going to say to open this week’s article, I was left thinking that we were missing something this week. I thought about it. I looked at the results from all the shows. And then I thought, there was no Daniel Bryan. I really hope he gets back in the ring as soon as possible, but of course he gets healed up first. I’m also hoping that we get a clear answer next week on the WWE World Title situation.

The Five-Count: The Uso’s Dominate, Intriguing Storylines, SmackDown

The Five-Count

 

WWE certainly had an interesting week. We are at that time where we are past WrestleMania and we are getting a glimpse of what’s to come this summer. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion was shockingly taken out of action. WWE signed a new TV deal with NBCU. The post-WrestleMania UK tour is just getting started. And, to top it all off, Vince McMahon is no longer a billionaire. This summer could be interesting if this is what we are dealing with already. But without further ado, lets count down the top moments from this week! [Read more...]

Triple H: Wielder Of The Golden Shovel Or The Eternal Flame?

hhhshovel2iaiae1_original_crop_exactOver the years, a lot has been said about Triple H and how he has treated talent under him on the card, especially over the last decade. And while he has not been in total control of the creative end of his feuds during this time frame, one can’t deny his stroke backstage.  However, that has not dissuaded his detractors from declaring him as the Wielder of the Golden Shovel, the weapon that can bury any talent.  But is he truly burying people, or is he just selecting certain workers he truly wishes to push?  By the end of this, I hope to shed some light on this.

Who Should Be The Next Contender?

On this past episode of Raw, we were treated to the first round of a new tournament in WWE. The winner of this tournament would be declared the #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship. This is a  great way to start building the credibility for the Intercontinental Championship again, but who deserves the chance to fight Big E? I will be analyzing the four semi-finalists positives for winning the tournament, and give my final prediction of what should happen in the end.
