The women of WWE have been kicking down the doors and breaking barriers the past few years as they continue their long journey to booking equality. On Sunday night the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank match took place and kicked off the show. What ensued was met with anger and complaints from the WWE Universe.
Extreme Rules is THIS Sunday on the WWE Network, but man oh man has WWE programming been brutal lately. This week’s RAW and SmackDown shows were once again sub-par with not a lot of strong segments. Let’s hope that RAW can find some storylines with their upper card, because right now it is lame. SmackDown has been unable to find its groove since the Superstar Shakeup and I am not as excited for Money in the Bank as I should be. But let’s get down to the rankings!
- Mr. Nestlemania: 5-3
- J.C.: 6-2
- Guthrie the Ring Announcer: 5-3
- DQ: 7-1
I thought both RAW and SmackDown had huge bounce back weeks and I enjoyed the overall programming. RAW found a way to replace Braun Strowman for at least this week and seems to be off and running towards Extreme Rules. SmackDown I thought had a very strong go home show for BackLash this Sunday.
Tough to be too inspired after this week of wrestling as there seemed to be a lot of filler. RAW had its worst show in weeks and SmackDown did little as we build towards Backlash. There were some strong performances however, so let’s get to the rankings.
I thought Payback way over delivered based on my expectations. The match quality was strong throughout and any time Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss pick up big wins, JC is a happy man.
Wrestlemania. . .
It’s Nestlemania’s Christmas. It’s the showcase of the immortals. It’s the ultimate thrill ride.
This year I had the chance to live it, and it was truly everything I could have imagined. . . and more.
