Some great stuff happened this week in WWE and some questionable stuff also happened. Isn't that always the case? The red brand hosted Fastlane this past Sunday, yet RAW the next night was ten times better. Go figure. The card for WrestleMania is filling up fast, and as of now, there's seven confirmed matches and like 10 more rumored matches. How are they going to make time for all this madness? Well, I suppose there's that 3 hour pre-show plus the 5 hour event itself. I may or may not be dramatizing, it could actually be 8 hours.
Here are the five best and five worst moments this week in WWE.
5. WORST - Predictable Universal Championship Victory
5. BEST - "You were never my best friend."
How dare Kevin Owens? It's one thing to stab your best friend in the back, but then to tell Chris Jericho that he was "never [his] best friend"? Ouch. Kevin. Your awful behaviour is precisely why Jericho's music distracted you into losing your Universal title.
4. WORST - Lana's Boots
4. BEST - SmackDown Live Main Event
3. WORST - Super Cena No More
3. BEST - Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
2. WORST - The New Day
2. BEST - The Undertaker Chokeslams Roman Reigns
"With all due respect, this is my yard now" said Roman Reigns to The Undertaker. What part of that is respectful, Roman? Thankfully, Undertaker responded by chokeslamming him, all while the crowd chanted "ROMAN SUCKS". Ha! Take that, Roman!
1. WORST - Bayley's A Heel Now, Right?
At Fastlane, Bayley asked Charlotte not to bring Dana Brooke to the ring so the two could face each other one-on-one to see who really is more deserving of that RAW Women's title. So funny then, that Charlotte actually complies only for Sasha Banks to interfere anyway and cost Charlotte the match. The Bayley I know, would've shoved Sasha and been all like "WTF, Sasha!?" But, nah. The Bayley we now know chose to celebrate with Sasha instead.
1. BEST - The Cruiserweight Division
This week, WWE seemed to actually want to fix things up with the Cruiserweight division by giving them more than the usual five minutes to tell a story. Not a surprise then, they succeeded admirably. Both Cruiserweight Championship matches wound up stealing their respective show. At Fastlane, Neville defended his belt against Jack Gallagher and defended it again the next night on RAW against former Champ Rich Swann.
And how 'bout that Austin Aries? He's got himself so over with the WWE Universe, it would be surprising if he and Neville don't face off at WrestleMania. Hopefully, they don't get the pre-show treatment because they're more than deserving for a real spot on the card.
Until next week!
