Considering one of the most important elections in American history just occurred, I doubt many of you found time to care a whole lot about wrestling this week. And you know what, that's okay. Don't watch wrestling sometimes, what do we care? All we ask is for you to head to The Sportster so we can fill you in on all the great moments (or terrible) you may have missed. We're kind of great like that.
Nothing too too important happened this week. A few good matches here and there, a few bad matches there and here. You know, the usual. We had a Championship match, a Raw debut, and the announcement of who will be participating in each Survivor Series Elimination match (all 40 of them - wowzers). So let's divulge shall we and check out the 5 best and 5 worst moments this week in World Wrestling Entertainment.
In less than two weeks time, Raw and SmackDown go head to head in three traditional Survivor Series Elimination matches, one of which of course will feature the ladies of wrestling. When they announced Bayley would be on Team Raw, the crowd would grow so loud and excited, they actually wound up ruining the segment.
Poor Rusev hasn't been winning any matches lately. But whatever.
When WWE announced there would be a Traditional Survivor Series Match pitting five of Raw's best tag teams against five of SmackDown's best tag teams, we immediately thought... "Wait, there's ten good tag teams available for this?" No. There isn't.
At least Raw is giving their guys some actual matches. SmackDown on the other hand, not so much. The blue brand would have another qualifying match pitting Breezango against The Vaudvillians in a match so short, it made the whole division look pathetic. If tag teams are losing matches in a period of seconds, how does that strengthen the division? The same thing happened last week too. Why couldn't these four wrestle a good competitive match we know these four are capable of? What's with all these two minute matches?
Barin Corbin would lose his spot on Team SmackDown (thank the heavens) due to a knee injury caused by Kalisto (go, Kalisto!), and general manager Daniel Bryan would be given the task to find someone to replace him. And who did Bryan think would best represent SmackDown in its fight against Raw? None other than Shane O Mac! Yes! Yes! Yes!
We haven't seen Shane wrestle since WrestleMania 32 earlier this year, and adding him to the match makes it much more interesting than it would have with Corbin. Toronto is in for one hell of a fun match come Survivor Series and we can't wait to see it.
