RAW had some strong segments, but it was the blue brand which won the week. The first hour plus of SmackDown Live was fantastic storytelling and wrestling. The last few segments were mostly misses in my book, but overall the show was very strong two weeks away from WrestleMania.

The Smackdown tag team division is a wasteland (Get it? It’s an Ascension joke). The whole division feels like filler on the “A-show” when it could easily be one of the better segments.
The way they utilize the group sometimes makes you forget they’re even there.
It’s time to make the Smackdown tag team division great again!
Here’s how they can do it in three easy steps. . .

RAW seemed to be giving us more of the same until a fantastic finish saved the show. Seth Rollins is at least partially cleared and appears on track to face Triple H at WrestleMania. On SmackDown, the top feuds had strong performances, but other aspects of the show came up short. Let’s check out this week’s ranks.

FastLane was a major disappointment overall and left a sour taste in all our mouths as we head towards WrestleMania. Goldberg is the new WWE Universal Champion after wrestling less than one minute total since he has returned to WWE. Both Charlotte and Braun Strowman saw long winning streaks snap on this meaningless PPV. Lets get to the rankings…

“What are we going to do with David Arquette as our champion?”
Famous last words for WCW.

Love it or hate it, Fastlane happened and now we’re on the final stretch to Wrestlemania.
In the FIRST edition of the DQ Review, I’m going to give some brief thoughts about each match.
Yes, I did go 7-1 in my predictions (taking down Guthrie’s reign), but it doesn’t mean I’m happy about the results.
When reading the results, keep in mind that I have invested interest in these outcomes because I will be in attendance at Wrestlemania next month.

After a promising start in the WWE that included a tag team title match against The New Day, The Vaudevillains currently find themselves in tag team obscurity on Smackdown.
What did the duo do to find themselves in purgatory?
Was it because Simon Gotch injured Enzo Amore?
Was it because Gotch got into a backstage fight with Sin Cara?
Or is it just a matter of “creative doesn’t have anything for you?”
We’ll probably never know exactly what happened to the gentlemen grapplers. But one thing is for sure, there is still plenty of potential for one half of the floundering duo.
That’s why it’s time for Aiden English to step back into the spotlight for an encore performance as “The Artiste,” “The Drama King.”
Continue reading Spotlight, please!: Time for an encore singles run for Aiden English, the “Drama King”
In what should have been a strong RAW leading into their FastLane PPV on Sunday, the 3 hour show failed to deliver. In other words, RAW was awful. But, fortunately for wrestling fans, SmackDown Live delivered in a big way on Tuesday with yet another top notch, fast-paced, entertaining show. Normally in a week leading into a brand exclusive PPV that show dominates the rankings. That will not happen this week.
