Well what do ya know. We're just a few short days away from yet another Pay-Per-View live on the Network. This time, the Superstars of RAW will be taking center stage. Did this week deliver in hyping us up for the event? Did New Day finally beat Demolition's record? Has Sami Zayn had enough? Is Bayley actually the female John Cena?
How was SmackDown Live? Well, we have three new Number One Contenders, so that's something. Read on as we deliver the 5 best and 5 worst moments this week in WWE.
If you don't already know, somebody took out Nikki Bella before her match at Survivor Series last month. According to Carmella, Natalya's the culprit. Natalya denies these claims. So on SmackDown when Nikki was on commentary, Natalya ran out with the microphone because she apparently had something important to say to Nikki. But before she could finish her thought, Carmella's music hit and out came the Princess of Staten Island.
So if you've read this column the past few weeks, you know I'm not the biggest fan of Mick Foley as GM. Mostly for his ridiculous treatment of Sami Zayn. Emphasis on ridiculous. HOWEVER... And this is a big however, I retract my previous statements because WWE threw in a swerve I wasn't expecting.
After telling Zayn he will happily trade him to SmackDown for Eva Marie (lol), we would learn it was all a rouse to ignite a fire under Zayn - a fire he believed Zayn needed in order for him to be ready to take on Braun Strowman this Sunday at Roadblock.
Since James Ellsworth had to back out of his match because he was sick with a "cold" (more on that later), Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon needed to come up with someone else worthy of a WWE Championship title shot. So we got a Fatal Four Way Elimination match pitting Dean Ambrose, The Miz, Luke Harper, and Dolph Ziggler of all people who can't seem to win an important match for the life of him. Oh wait. I spoke too soon. Dolph Ziggler won. Okay, okay... I think I'm down to see AJ Styles take on Dolph Ziggler.
As you all knew, if The New Day made it past this Monday, they would become the longest reigning WWE World Tag Team Champions of all of time and space. And yep, in the opening match of the night, New Day defeated Cesaro and Sheamus and Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in a Triple Threat match to officially break Demolition's record.
It was a mighty fine moment and it was rightfully deserved...
Is anyone else starting to see similarities between Bayley and the John Cena of yesteryear?
In their celebration of their first win of the night, Xavier Woods would crack open a bottle of champagne only for it to explode in Stephanie McMahon's face. Obviously an accident, but since Stephanie McMahon is an awful human being lacking of any understanding, she put them in another Triple Threat later in the main event against Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho and 2/3rds of The Shield in Roman Reigns (ugh) and Seth Rollins.
It was this match where we actually believed The New Day might actually lose, but low and behold, they would reign supreme once again to officially officially become your...
