Grading Roman Reigns’ Performance at Fast Lane

Roman-Reigns-and-Daniel-Bryan

Okay so ignoring the dead memphis crowd at a redeeming PPV, Fast Lane was a solid PPV with a big match that was filled with an unknown ending.

Reports constantly moved back and forth how this match would go, one saying Reigns was going to win, another saying Bryan was going to be inserted into another Triple Threat Match at Mania.

That added another element I haven’t been able to witness in a while: Unpredictablity.

Heading into the match, I had expecations that this match could surpass their last encounter from 2 years ago.

And boy did they DESTROY my expecations.

They not only delievered a great match, did moves normally not seen from Bryan and Reigns, but they told a soild story of two guys willing to do ANYTHING to get the main event at WrestleMania, and sold a classic wrestling format: Techinical vs. Brawler.

Reigns sold his hernia injury after getting a stiff kick from Bryan in the midsection, he sold not ala Ziggler and Rollins, but sold it like he was legitmiately hurt.

Roman Reigns added three more moves to his arsnal, bring up to a total of 18 Moves he uses, (Been keeping a mental list on that lol).

Highlights inculded times they almost went with a no contest, the back and forth elements, and The Never say die between the two fighters.

The match was great, it didn’t feel like Bryan carried Reigns at all, they both a something to prove.

Reigns proved he can indeed in fact wrestle when allowed to, and Bryan proved why he’s on of the best in-ring workers in the company and has the humble of Funk and Taker when it comes to putting stars over.

Conculsion, Reigns earns an A for his performance in the match, he was looked strong, a complete badass, and co-delievered a second contender for Match of The Year to compete with Lesnar-Rollins-Cena

Review: WWE 24

image10

So I decided to try out a review of something, but if I was to try reviewing a episode of RAW, I be most likely ranting for twenty minutes, so I decided to look at the next big WWE Network project.

WWE 24!

The idea of the show is to give an inside look at some of WWE’s milestone events and larger-than-life Superstars. WWE will use personal archives, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage to present current and former talents or events in a different way than they usually do. WWE 24 was described as similar to the new TNA Unlocked show but with a bigger budget.

So WWE 24, did it live up to a big hype it was getting?

Alright to start things off, the show began with a showing of WM Axxess and 24 hours before the big pay-per-view, the production qualities were superb, the atmosphere surrounding the hype of WM30 was really showed, the alternate camera angles, backstage footage, along with breaking Kayfabe (You’ll see Cena talking with Rowan and Harper), along with tear-jerking moments seeing Connor during his final days on this world. The Good die too young RIP.

Along with the great production values, there were some heavy highlights for me in this episode.

Connor will be remembered!image8

Connor was shown a lot in this 30 minute project, his interactions with Daniel Bryan, Batista, HHH, and etc., shows just the life that was in this young boy, despite his failing health, he bring life in the WWE during his visits, like pinning HHH in the ring (You heard me). Connor the Crusher is greatly remembered and in the hearts of many, though Bryan has a special bond. Hmm, every time I see it, I’m thinking, Connor Danielson, Bryan and Brie’s possible son.

There’s still that respected Vince beneath his senile stateimage5

Okay, my opinion on Vince McMahon in recent years has, to say bluntly, in the crapper, I’ve accused him of being jealous of HHH’s NXT Stars, claimed he’s lost with the times, and is overstaying his welcome in the industry, ala Ric Flair like.

But we saw the Vince McMahon I respected for his overall career, for his care for the Undertaker, adding that he left his post at WM for the first time ever just to be with Undertaker when he was taken to the hospital.

Vince, despite his recent ‘ideas’ and actions, still has the man inside him that earned my respect for his dedication for the business.

HHH’s High Hopes for NXT

In the first 6-7 minutes, HHH was praising the NXT Developmental, and the NXT Divas were showing their excitement and said they were glad to be chosen, whereas they could’ve just hired models to help HHH’s entrance, **Hint** **Hint** Eva Marie, improve or your career may be over when HHH takes over.

There’s a Heart underneath the massive ego of Hulk Hogan

image4

Hulk Hogan, infamous for his backstage politics, and role in WCW’s demise, and had a role in dismantling Warrior’s legacy in a certain DVD, showed his softer side in his apology to Warrior during the show. It was shown underneath that ego-filled mind is a kind man people would want to be friends with.

Undertaker’s loss is still echoing a year after WrestleMania

image7

21-1

The one thing people would never expect to happen still echoes in the industry now, add that he was rushed to the hospital when he collapsed in the back.

Though it being his final match…

Bray Wyatt might disagree with that.

Conclusion

Overall I HIGHLY Recommend checking this out, the fact WWE 24 is going to be a series will really fill the gap the Monday Night War series leaves behind, I’m more curious if WWE will show what happened backstage CM Punk the night after Royal Rumble.

Though I will say this inquiry, why wasn’t Flair part of the Summit of Megastars? Sure he isn’t WWE’s Mt. Rushmore, but he’s wrestling’s iconic figure, it was shown he was backstage, they could’ve had him join his fellow megastars in the opening show. Why wasn’t Cesaro shown after the battle royal? Or Cena and Wyatt after their match?

Mick Foley Speaks Truth!

Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns should be first two entrants in The Royal Rumble

2015/01/img_1544.jpg

The Royal Rumble is nearly upon us tonight.

The two big favorites in the match with Fans and the industry are seeing to win are none other then Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan.

So how about we have those two make history together, let’s have Reigns and Bryan be the first two in the match and be the first guys to be the final contestants in match.

Reigns would be able to bring out the best when fighting someone like Bryan, and Bryan would be reminiscing his mentor HBK in the bout.

Plus it will give Reigns a major improvement in various areas, such as: Being able to handle being in a hour long bout, endurance, and performing a quality performance in a long bout of great importance. Also someone who isn’t Big Show.

Adding to the fact he be working with a guy who gave him his first best singles bout.

Last time Bryan and Reigns fought each other would have to be around February to early March when The Shield were gearing up for their war against The Wyatt Family.

Awhile ago I wrote that Bryan shouldn’t win the rumble due to risking his neck in a match against Lesnar, still standing by that adding that WWE has been letting Kane, and Wyatt target his surgically repaired neck.

Bryan has been show he hasn’t missed a step being gone for half a year, other then gaining few pounds and letting his hair grow out, he will be able to bring out the best in Roman Reigns.

Tyson Kidd: FACT.

Those two should make Rumble history together.

Tyson Kidd: FACT.

Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan will deliver and give it their all tonight!

Tyson Kidd: FACT!

Daniel Bryan shouldn’t win the Royal Rumble

image The new year has arrived, and the Royal Rumble is nearing.

On the final RAW of 2014, Bryan had returned, at first looking to be a retirement speech, but became a return speech announcing his involvement in the Royal Rumble.

However, in my general opinion, he shouldn’t win the rumble.

Because, the guy just had returned from Neck Injury, and does anyone want to risk him fighting Lesnar, and possible worse his neck, NO. Bryan’s health and long-term tenure must be ensured and that means, Daniel Bryan shouldn’t win the rumble, the important of his health is too much of a risk, I say he should re-adapt to the ring environment before winning the world title again, no one wants to another vacant world title after Bryan had worked so hard to get, and see him forced to retire. He barely got out of going out like Edge, I don’t think WWE should risk it happening with Lesnar-Bryan.

It’s been reported that Reigns is still booked to win the rumble and go on to beat Lesnar at 31.

While I won’t say Reigns is the right choice or not but I feel like WWE is making the wise decision not having Bryan face Lesnar, I’m no doctor, but having just returned and being booked to face Lesnar with a just recovered neck is too much of a risk, Fans shouldn’t turn on whoever wins the rumble this time, because they should be thinking of Bryan’s long term stay in wrestling because Lesnar does one wrong move, and it will be all over for Bryan.
