2017 Clash of Champions Review

Russ and Kent have seen the Clash of Champions, and now they insist upon talking about it.

The 9

  1.  Mojo Rawley def Zack Ryder

Russ:  I enjoyed this match.  It wasn’t great, but at least I could say I was entertained.  The story is about 5 months too late, but I want to see where they take Mojo from here.  Hopefully to some kind of midcard push. Rating: 4.2  

Kent:  I admit that Mojo showed me some stuff in this match.  This was better than I anticipated, but Mojo went over.  I’m not sure if I see him getting any kind of push, but it was a fine showcase.

Rating: 3.7 I anticipated in the 2 range.

  1.  Dolph Ziggler def Baron Corbin & Bobby Roode to become the NEW US Champ

Russ:  I always love seeing Bobby come out to Glorious and tonight was no exception.  I know Dolph comes out to no music now, but this time it felt like a real wrench in the machine.  The crowd and everything just stopped and for what felt like 10 minutes it was silent.  The match itself was fast paced and well done.  Several believable nearfalls made this exciting toward the end. I am concerned with Bobby and his role in the WWE.  He looked good in this match, but I felt like he was way too overshadowed by the other two.  He really needs a breakout match.  Rating: 6  

Kent:  Well, I don’t recommend that you read our preview because it makes Keri and to a lesser extent, me, look like a damn fool.  Mainly Keri….yeah.  Under the bus you go.    This was a solid match.  I think including Dolph was the right call.  Bobby never felt like he got going in this one which is a problem.  I am worried that Smackdown isn’t right for him.  Hell, I’m not even mad that Baron jobbed and lost his belt to Dolph because it works and adds to the story.

Rating: 5.4 seems fair.  I liked it enough

  1.  The Uso’s def New Day, Rusev Day, & American Omega to retain their tag belts

Russ:  Top to bottom this was the best match of the night.  The highlight of the night was the 12 days of Rusev.  The crowd ate it up!  I hate to say this, but it won’t be long before Rusev Day goes face.  I mean I’m glad for Rusev.  It will be nice to have him be something else other than a foreign heel.  As for the match.  This was chaotic and fun.  Each team came off this match either looking better or at least maintaining form.  Rating:  6.8 (full point for the 12 days of Rusev.)  

Kent:  Thank you WWE for finally giving us the full 12 Days of Rusev song.  That was the high point of my night, no doubt about it.  The Uso’s mic work was solid too, but my god, Rusev Day is way more over than I thought they would get.  I was way off the mark.  What I loved about this match is that The Uso’s and New Day didn’t get a ton of offense in, it was more dispersed toward Rusev Day and American Omega, but not overwhelmingly so.  It wasn’t one of those Cena/Roman matches where he gets his ass kicked all match and then boom, finisher and end of match.  Chad, Shelton, Rusev, and Aiden all looked great in their own way.  I thoroughly enjoyed this match, and I liked having 4 guys in at once.  Way more Kentertaining!

Rating: 6.4 I had a lot of fun with this.  I doubt it’s a terribly memorable match though to put things in proper perspective.  

  1.  Charlotte def Natty to retain her belt….BOOOOOOOO

Russ: I was in and out of this match.  So take my rating with a grain of salt.  The match was ok.  That is the best I can come up with.  The lumberjacks (excuse me Lumberjills) part of this was just so useless.  Even more so the whole match felt slow paced. I had a hard time paying attention to this match and at times left the room all together not caring at all about how the match would go.  Rating: 3    (Kent: I have to rant.  Fuck saying Lumberjills.  It’s just lumberjack.  When a female uses a car jack, does it suddenly become a car jill?  No!  Why is that?  Because it’s f’n stupid to create new gender specific terms.  If you were looking for something PC, go fuck F yourself.)

Kent:  I know what you’re thinking.  “Oh boy, here comes Kent to shit all over a Charlotte match once again.”  Well, you would be correct.  I just got done making fun of the John Cena booking and what do we over here (in my best Enzo voice)?  Was Charlotte in control for more than 2 minutes of this match?  No?  Was this all just an excuse to get all of the women on and show off SuperCharlotte?  Yup!  This was such a shitty match.  This would be bad on an episode of Smackdown, but on PPV.  Fuck this.  The only time I felt a slight twinge in my man region was when Carmella briefly considered cashing in MitB.  Like this match was Natty do a few blah moves, toss Charlotte outside, Charlotte gets beat up and thrown back in, rinse and repeat 8 more times.  Who booked this shit?  Both women are very capable of having a much better match.  This is on booking and not the women.

Rating: 1.5 because of Carmella’s fine ass.

  1.  Bludgeon Brothers def Breezedango

Russ:  About the only thing I have to say about this match was that I’m glad the Bludgeon Bros. won!  I was hoping this match would be more than a squash match considering how over Breezedango is.  However, WWE seems to think of them as humorous jobbers. All the points earned in this match are given to the fact that Harper has a win on a PPV.  No matter how bad the match was at least Harper has a win!   Rating: 3.3

Kent:  How does a match that spends more time on entrances than it does on match fair compared to the last putrid pile of garbage?  Well, better, that’s for sure.  There was nothing great or ground breaking, and I’m still pissed how they F’d over the Fashion Files this week.  With that being said, this match was too short to be offensive.  I loved it!

Rating: 3.3 The match knew who it was and what it wanted to do and they went in and did it precise and I thank them.  I can’t go higher because of match length.

  1.  SamiKO def ShinsuRKO

Russ:   If we look at the match by itself in a void this was just an adequate match.  All the performers are what I would consider top tier guys.  I have certain expectation from these guys.  They barely delivered.  Again that was just looking at the match.  If you include everything that was involved, then this match was very entertaining.  The goal here was to finish telling the story of if SamiKO being fired or not.  They did that, but they also added new wrinkles to the story.  This was a well told story in the ring that made me want to see what will happen next.  Mission accomplished in that regard.  I just never felt like SamiKO could lose their jobs and no amount of nearfalls accomplished that feat for me.  Still I won’t complain. I can’t wait to see what happens on Smackdown.  Rating: 6.2   

Kent:  Another very solid match, historic according to WWE.  Well it only took a few minutes for Shane’s wireless transmitter to break on him, so he was clueless a good chunk of the match, so he was more useless than normal.  Daniel did a great job.  I thought Orton shined bright tonight in his role.  I was wrong about the outcome and i’m not remotely upset.  My idea added a bit more longevity to this story, in my opinion, but this was fine.  This was enjoyable and the story kept it flowing properly.  Byron Saxton was not good on commentary.  I applaud the effort, but he is getting his ass handed to him by Corey.

Rating:  6.4 Because this is somewhat memorable and the action was good.  I loved that Sami cleared out the tablet at the last moment before KO crashed.  

  1.  AJ Styles def Jinder Mahal to retain the blue belt

Russ:  I enjoyed this match.  Both guys put in effort and the result was good.  Unfortunately, good isn’t good enough to redeem Jinder.  He held the belt for approximately 6 months and in that time his feuds have been horrendous.  I can forgive that because that’s the fault of creative.  While the feuds have been bad the wrestling was actually worse.  This is Jinder’s fault.  The stories may be bad, but you can still put on a decent match.  When the stories are bad and the matches are bad, then we are all in for a bad time.  As a result, this tarnished Jinder’s reign in my eyes (and I’m pretty sure the majority of other fans eyes too I suspect.)  Back to the match.  This was the best I’ve seen Jinder…ever!  I hope his time at the top has taught him a few things and maybe he can build himself up to be a better opponent.  As for AJ.  Well I hope he can now become a main focus on Smackdown.  The belt has been a non priority for WWE this year and that sucks!  With AJ holding it and no longer having to worry about a rematch with Jinder we can look to bigger and better things.  Rating: 5.2

Kent:  Even when Jinder is interesting, he’s still boring as fuck.  Worst champ of the past 10 years and nobody is going to change my mind.  They both tried, and they told a good story.  Jinder just lacks the charisma to make me care.  Also, the refs.  When the Singh Bros pull out Jinder, you DQ them or at the very least send them to the back.  They are booking refs awfully lately.  

Rating: 2.5 Mainly because they really tried, but I could not stay focused to give 2 fucks about it.  Compared to the women, this was a match of the year candidate though, so there is that.

  1.  Performer of the night?

Russ:  I’m going to go with AJ Styles here.  AJ always delivers big matches against all opponents.  Tonight was no exception.  It is an even bigger feat when you consider he is the only person to squeeze a good match out of Jinder.  Anyone who can accomplish that is definitely the performer of the night in my eyes.  However, a damn close second was Aiden English! Come on! 12 Days of Rusev!  I want that shirt!  

Kent:  Tough one.  I assume Russ will take Aiden, even if I say Aiden, he would not both trying to pick someone else, so fuck it, I’m going with Chad Gable.  Just imagine him shaving his head and he’d look like Kurt.  God, they royally fucked that up.  Chad better have a nice title run over the next year.  This dude is money.  Shelton still has it.  Rusev was working the crowd better than ever.  I will critique Aiden here mainly because I assume Russ chose him.  Early in the match, one of the Uso’s went to do a dive on Aiden and I wanna say Big E.  Aiden didn’t continue swatting or punching Big E.  He just stopped and watched for what seemed like 3-4 seconds as the Uso bounced off the rope and dove.  I applaud being safe, but that was really bad.  Something he needs to work on if he’s going to be a tag guy for awhile.

  1.  Best match of the night?

Russ:  Well, I already said that the Tag Championship was the best match from top to bottom for me.  So I will stick with that.  

Kent:  In my mind, there are 2 matches that I had rated the same.  The questions is simple   Do you value a bunch of guys all showcasing their moves and having a high paced match with no real down time, or do you prefer coherent storytelling with some good moves and a big spot?  I will always take story over spot monkeys.  The tag match at times did devolve into spot monkey syndrome, albeit very good.  If people prefer the tag match, you care more about in ring and moves.  If you prefer the SamiKO match, you prefer a well told story.  If you preferred the Charlotte match, you are mildly retarded.  I don’t even know how you’re reading this.

Bonus Deuce Deuce

  1. Worst match of the night?

Russ:  Well based on score it is the Women’s Championship.  Based on personal feelings it was the Women’s Championship.  Seems like to me we have a consensus here.  The match was poor!  

Kent:  I feel like I could really break this match down to tell all of the points in which this match was absolute shit, but if you saw it, you know it was shit.  If you didn’t see it, you’re reading this and thinking “Hot damn!  I am so glad that I didn’t see that.”  

  1.  Who does AJ Styles feud with next?

Russ:  I think AJ is going to feud with SamiKO.  I think it’s time that the WWE champion is in the best story going.  I’m ready.  

Kent:  This is a tough one.  I think it’s going to be Baron.  They could get SamiKO involved, but it would have to mainly be Sami.  Still, that’s a good story, no sense in combining your best belt with this story yet, in my opinion.  That also takes Randy out.  Shinsuke seems likely to be AJ’s Mania opponent, so no to him.  That realistically leaves Baron or Bobby.  Bobby is not doing so well, so maybe this feud with Dolph could help.  Losing to AJ wouldn’t help at this time.  He needs some wins before AJ makes sense.  Baron is the only other guy with enough credibility to step up because Jinder should be finished.  Baron is good enough to face AJ at Rumble and Fast Lane and then slide down the card for Mania season.  Him and AJ have great chemistry and it doesn’t affect the SamiKO vs Shane story.  That’s what is key.  Baron is a loner, so he should stay far away from that.

Final Thoughts

Russ: This PPV was just a shade above adequate.  The wrestling wasn’t memorable, but nothing stank out loud.  In fact two of the matches were lots of fun.  The build up to this PPV was terrible and the WWE Championship was an afterthought.  I hope with AJ steering the ship and past the Jinder Hindered waters we can now make it a priority again WWE.  

Kent:  This was a mediocre PPV.  The lows were really low, the top male and female championship matches were the 2 worst in my opinion, especially when you consider time allotted and story heading in.  The Hype Bros and Bludgeon Bros stuff wasn’t bad, but nothing memorable, just filler.  The US match was good, but could have used 5 more minutes.  That’s something right there that pisses me off.  They spent so much time on random bullshit and ended early.  Why could this match have been given 5 more minutes?  It’s the one match that could have benefited most from it, especially Bobby. The night will be remembered for Sami winning, Dolph Winning, and Rusev Day getting over.  Not bad, but like way too many PPV’s this year, this was one that you could see all that you wanted to see in under an hour.  That’s not good.  Also, Renee’s outfit was not good.  I love Renee, but damn!

2017 Clash of Champions Preview

Keri and Kent take a look at the last WWE PPV of the year.  The build up was average.  Some stories have been done significantly better than others.  Still, there’s enough intrigue to keep out attention, well Kent’s attention.  Keri is not very interested, but she took the time to make predictions, damnit!

The 9

  1.  The Battle of the Bros – Zack Ryder vs Mojo Rawley

Keri: Let’s look at this match from a couple of angles, shall we? On one side we have Mojo, who started the year strong with his Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale wine and lost said momentum when Ryder returned. Then on the other side you have Ryder. A guy who once held the IC title for one day before dropping it to the Miz and up to that point had been consistently buried. Both guys have a reason to be angry and frustrated with their situation. In this case, the angrier one is the one who will win this match. More anger equals more motivation in this case.  (Kent: I love this logic!  The angrier person wins.  That should be a new theory.)

Pick: Mojo

Kent:  Mojo has to win this one, right?  Is this the most predictable match of the night?  No no no, you don’t know that.  Mojo could get DQ’d due to hyper aggression.  I like that idea.  Screw it.

Prediction: Zack wins due to DQ

  1.  Breezedango vs The Bludgeon Brothers

Keri:  Hmmmm. I smell a squash match. Prediction: Bludgeon Brothers win

Kent:  Now here is the most predictable match on the card.  No reason for Brezedango to get a win because nobody takes them seriously in the ring.  No reason for the Bludgeon Bros to lose yet.  I would like to see a post match beat down and the Ascension try to make the save only for them to get beat up too.

Prediction: Rowan….Harper…..Bludgeon Brothers!

  1.  Women’s Championship Lumberjack Match – Charlotte vs Natty

Keri: I miss Becky. Prediction: Nepotism continues with a title retention.

Kent:  I don’t care.

Prediction: I will be happy when the match is over.

  1.  US Championship Triple Threat Match – Baron vs Bobby vs Dolph

Keri:  Poor Dolph. He is in this match for a few good spots and to eat the pin. The big question I have is what kind of dynamic are we going to get with Roode and Baron. This pair is still intriguing.

Prediction: Baron retains because it’s too soon and the wrong time of year for any other outcome.

Kent:  Baron is still early in his run.  Dolph is a non-factor.  His interviews lately have been gold in real life.  Bobby could win this.  Bobby could use a belt more than Baron.  Baron is back on track after Cena’s Shovel of Doom.  Baron could keep the belt til Mania and I would be happy.  Bobby could get the belt and Baron could move on, and i’d be fine.  I really want Bobby vs Tye for the US Championship.  Also, just for my laughs, if Baron and Sasha teamed up in the Mixed Tag fuckeroo, they could be called the Foreheads, and they would be my favorite.

Prediction: Bobby pins Dolph so Baron doesn’t job.

  1.  4 Way Tag Title Match – Usos vs New Day vs Rusev Day vs American Omega

Keri:  This should be match of the night. All teams really have an equal shot of winning. With that said…

Prediction: American Beta wins.

Kent:  I can see any of these teams winning.  The booking has been pretty solid.  I would say Rusev Day is my least favored because they have picked up some solid wins lately.  New Day isn’t set for another run, I don’t think.  That brings it down to Uso’s or American Omega.  The Uso’s are established and they don’t need the belts.  I say American Omega gets a shot to prove themselves.  They’re really good.

Prediction: American Omega and therefore Chad gets a belt before Jordan.

  1.  Blue Belt Match – AJ Styles vs Jinder Mahal

Keri: Yeah there is no reason to put the belt back on Jinder when we are about to start the push to Rumble season. Also, his first run as champ was pretty bad. With that said, I see the Singh Bros playing a role in this and I see them maybe screwing Jinder.

Prediction: AJ retains

Kent:  I don’t know.  It seems like Jinder is going to get the belt back, but that has long been the assumption.  I think they wait to do it in India if they’re gonna do it.  No sense in doing it now.  I eagerly await being wrong.

Prediction: AJ Styles retains

  1.  SamiKO vs ShinsuRKO with 2 refs and if SamiKO loses then they’re fired

Keri:  This match has a lot of variables associated with it. First, why is Shinsuke in this match? Second, how are they going to set up the heel face dynamic to close out the match? You know we are getting a turn or two. It’s just a question of who turns. Lastly, how screwy of an ending are we getting on this one?

Prediction: SamiKO win after a Bryan assist.

Kent:  This is the one right here, and I hope it is the main event.  It’s the best thing going today in pro wrestling in totality.  I think SamiKO loses due to Shane reversing decisions or some shit and this will lead to some great protests.

Prediction: ShinsuRKO

By the way, WWE claiming that this is the “first time ever” having 2 refs for a match.  This picture promoting a match for the 2017 Royal Rumble, yes less than a year ago, says otherwise.

  1.  What match are you most looking forward to?

Keri:  Tag team

Kent:  Tag Team Title Match

  1.  What match interests you the most?

Keri:  SamiKO

Kent:  SamiKO has the best story.

 

Bonus Deuce

  1. If you could book one more match using talent that is not in a match, who would it be?

Keri:  How about a yes they still work here match? We can put Sin Cara, Tye, Mike Kanellis, and the Colons in a match.

Kent:  Huh…..who is left?  Uhmmmm, Tye Dillenger vs ……wow, aside from Mike Kanellis and the 3rd New Day member, everybody is working in theory, aside from the Colons.  I wanna see Sarah Logan vs Tamina after the Women’s title match, so that’s my pick.

  1.  What match will go on last?

 Keri:  SamiKO

Kent:  SamiKO goes on last as long as AJ is retaining.  If AJ’s match is last, place all money on Jinder winning the belt.

Here’s a WWE Champion trivia test from the website.  I got 1 wrong.

WWE Clash Of Champions 2016 Preview

WWE Clash of Champions 2016 Preview

Hi everybody. I wrote this up, then I decided to harass Russ until he submitted…..a copy of his picks. Ahhh. Anyway, enjoy us in all of our mediocrity as we do our best to guess who’s winning what this Sunday Night, ONLY on the WWE Network!

Alicia Fox vs. Nia Jax

alicia-fox-nia-jax

Russ: Yay!  Nia Jax, my favorite cardboard cutout of a human and Alicia Fox, crazy wrapped in a tiny cute package.  I’ll be honest I have no interest in this match.  Therefore, I don’t care who wins it.  Since it is Nia’s first PPV for the red brand I believe she will win in a decisive manner.

Winner: Nia, cause WWE is still trying to make me care about this bruiser.

Kent: I would love to see this go 10 minutes where Nia competently works a match. But I have my doubts, and I don’t know who to blame. You can’t have a bad match with Foxy unless you are trying to fuck up.  If you put in the effort, Foxy will bump like crazy for you. I just hope that she doesn’t go overboard because I still fear that Nia is unsafe in the ring, and Summer Rae is apparently injured.

Winner: Alicia due to DQ or Count Out

 

Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho

sami-zayn-chris-jericho

Russ:  They didn’t really build this feud other than Sami was KO’s former friend and Jericho is his best friend!  Honestly, though that is good enough for me because this will be a good match.  Jericho is seasoned pro who can put on a match with anyone, while Sami seems to be hitting a stride in the ring.  I’m hoping this match makes Jericho’s List.  List of best matches (Kent thought I was going to steal his idea again!)

Winner: Jericho after a code breaker out of nowhere!

Kent: Russ, you sanctimonious son of a bitch, yes I did. I know that we heap praise on Jericho a ton, and rightfully so, but has WWE misused his greatness to get over the main event and tag division, and not focused enough on his actual Sami feud? I’m not blaming Jericho or Zayn, but they had that one great promo, and I’m not as excited for this as I want to be. I think Jericho loses to add more to the complaint list.

Winner: Sami by roll up

 

Cruiserweight Championship Match

TJ Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick

tj-perkins-brian-kendrick

Russ: I feel this will be a match that a lot of people are going to be talking about the next night on RAW.  I won’t go as far as say match of the night, because these guys are new to RAW and a lot of fans have no clue who they are.  I can’t see WWE switching champions already.

Winner: TJ Perkins, cause WWE isn’t that stupid are they?

Nothing would say fuck you to the fans more than holding this extremely long tournament only to immediately put the belt on somebody else. Yeah.

Winner: Brian Kendrick because they have more faces than heels

 

Best of Seven Series – Match #7

Cesaro vs. Sheamus – Winner gets World Title Opportunity

cesaro-sheamus

Russ:  This is going to be my match of the night.  This has the best story going into Clash.  The match on RAW was really good and was a precursor to what I think is going to be a show stopper.

Winner: Cesaro, cause this has been a forgone conclusion since this whole thing began.

Cesaro is the obvious choice, probably the most obvious pick of the night. WWE likes to fuck with fans sometimes, like Sasha last month. Still, KO vs Cesaro is a feud people would care about. Sheamus vs. KO, not so much. I cannot find a single logical reason for Cesaro not to continue his ascension.

Winner: Cesaro in possibly match of the night

 

RAW Tag Team Championship

New Day vs. Gallows and Anderson

new-day-gallows-anderson

Russ: Time for a changing of the guards.  New Day has held the belts for long enough.   If WWE wants to make the RAW brand Tag division anything close to a competition with Smackdown it is time to pump some new blood into the dying husk that is the Tag division on RAW.  Also, I want Big E getting the push he deserves.

Winners AND NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!  G&A

I just don’t see the point in putting the belts on G&A right now. They will wait for Finn to return. If they wanted to do the switch, Summer Slam made sense. Not anymore. I know that for avid fans, we crave change, and then we bitch about not legitimizing champions by giving them long reigns. When one does get one, we bitch, but 5 years later, we say how good it was, like JBL’s. This is why the IWC is a bunch of twits. New Day is retaining the belts.

Winners: New Day

 

RAW Women’s Championship Match

Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte vs. Bayley

charlotte-sasha-banks-bayley

Russ:  I suppose Sasha could win this match, but it would have made more sense if she didn’t lose the title at Summer Slam!  Bayley isn’t winning this thing yet her time will be later in this year say a January PPV or an End of March PPV.  That leaves Charlotte.  That doesn’t bother me as much as having to listen to her talk on Raw the next night.

Winner:  Cause WWE wants to have my ears bleed – Charlotte

In a match that everybody wanted….at Wrestlemania, we instead get this now.  Bayley isn’t winning, that’s for Rumble or Mania. Sasha could, but Paige is due back soon. I say keep it on Charlotte, and give Paige a title win. Then she can transition it to a heel Sasha, and then Bayley vs. Sasha at Mania. Yes, that would be great.

Winner: Charlotte thanks to Dana

 

US Championship Match

Rusev vs. Roman Reigns

rusev-roman-reigns

Russ: This feud has been a shitshow since it started and has done nothing to change my opinion on it.  I think they will have a decent match, but who the fuck cares since giving the belt to Roman will do nothing for the show or either guy.  So yeah I’m calling WWE to say fuck you people…

Winner: Roman, and pretty much everyone else loses.

I don’t even know if either guy has been booked well since Summer Slam. Is Rusev about to get a one way ticket to Jobber Town again, or will intelligence prevail, since Roman has been the bully this whole time? I say they utilize Roman to get KO over some more after the Seth feud. Somehow, Rusev shall retain, hopefully by just getting counted out. That’s my style of victory.

Winner: Rusev CRUSH!!!

 

RAW World Title

Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins

kevin-owens-seth-rollins

Russ:  As much as I am in love with Seth, come on people he is cute!  There is no way he is going to take the belt off KO, already.  I do believe that HHH is going to interfere or Stephanie.  This will lead to a big angle for Seth that will last until WrestleMania.  Afterwards, Seth will go after the belt again and of course win it!  A day I will wait for with impatience!

Winner: and Still WWE RAW Champ KO

Seth isn’t getting this belt back. It’s not happening. Maybe he gets screwed over by HHH again, but he’s not beating Owens this early in KO’s reign. I expect a great match tarnished with some interference by the end, and half the fans will be happy, and half will be bitchy, and that’s how you wrap up an unremarkable PPV, with 1 whole title change!

Winner: Kevin Owens, hopefully via Jericho’s help

We hope that you enjoyed this, and more importantly, we hope that we’re right in order to inflate our minuscule ego. Feel free to leave a comment with some predictions. Also, let’s hope to see this man Sunday.

hhh-being-awesome
