RAW RELOADED [29/09/14] Triple Trouble with Triple the Divas Matches!

Oh yes indeed, it’s that time once again where we recap the events of from the sports entertainment night before with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week saw a very lackluster week for the Divas as storylines seemed to stall with more of the same that we’ve seen before. With the Hell in a Cell Pay Per View looming, will we see a turn around this week? Let’s get into it and find out.

Predictably STEPHANIE MCMAHON and husband Triple H opened the show to further the feuds and storylines involving Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, John Cena, and even Brock Lesnar. Nothing new to report here, apart from an obvious dig at a quitter from Chicago.

Divas such as CAMERON, LILLIAN GARCIA, and NATALYA were featured in a Susan G Komen video as the WWE’s partnership with the breast cancer charity gets into full swing for another year.

McMahon would be briefly seen again, telling Rollins to stay put while her hubby sent agents on a mission to get the Money in the Bank briefcase back. Later on McMahon would tell off those same agents for failing to find Ambrose, warning them they’d be fired if they didn’t get the job done.

The Match

Divas Singles Match

LAYLA w/h SUMMER RAE Vs ROSA MENDES w/h NATALYA & Tyson Kidd

No entrances? ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN! Layla, in pink Susan G Komen shirt and all was bouncing away while Rae on the outside mouthed off at the announcers, and for some reason Mendes came out to Nataly’s theme. OK, sure. Meanwhile Kidd seemed more interested in something on his phone, much to wife Natalya’s annoyance as the commentators stated there was material problems between the two. Before throwing to a clip from Total Divas so yeah, gotta totally be heading for splits-ville. Not.

Back from the clip Natalya seemed bummed out by Kidd’s apathy while he shrugged it off, more concerned by his phone which made JBL question if he was playing Pac-Man. The match started with Layla getting control early, hitting a safe-looking Side Kick before slamming Mendes down while Natalya tried to wrestle her husband’s phone out of his grip. Meanwhile Layla choked her opponent on the ropes as Summer took a picture.

Layla locked on a Chinlock while Kidd put on his headphones to drown out the fans’ chant of “Nattie’s Husband!”. They must all watch NXT as well! Natalya was less than amused while the announcers buried Kidd, and oh the match is still going on in the ring. After getting a near fall Layla lost control, taking a rough Knee Strike and eating some Forearms but got decked by one THAT KNOCKED A DAMN HAIR EXTENSION OUT FROM ROSA’S HAIR! Oh lordy…

Things didn’t get better as Mendes comically was sent to the outside. Layla mouthed off at Natalya when she tried to check on her step-daughter , which brought in Summer Rae and because reality show feuds apparently matter Natalya (safely) took Rae down on the floor to start laying in shots. Kidd couldn’t care less at this all, while Mendes laid in some kicks to Layla. Mendes tossed her opponent in and Layla backed away, suckering her in to toss her down into the middle rope. One LayOut Neckbreaker later, and that’s all she wrote.

Layla defeats Rosa Mendes with the LayOut.

Post-match: Natalya finally got the phone of Kidd, storming off while The Slayers took selfies over the fallen Mendes.

Thoughts: What a train wreck! Bowling shoe ugly and not just down to Mendes still flat out sucking in the ring either. Layla couldn’t carry Rosa to a decent match sadly, and the WWE never learns that Rosa needs to stay out of the ring! It seems like having a random match based on whatever happens on Total Divas will continue to be a thing, so only more pain is inbound if this is any indication.

McMahon appeared again in a brief segment to set up the night’s main event.

RENEE YOUNG would interview Bo Dallas on his upset victory over Mark Henry, but the infuriated Henry would soon appear to decimate Dallas.

The Second Match

Divas Handicap Match

BRIE BELLA Vs CAMERON & EVA MARIE

Brie made her way to the ring, the announcers hyping the Susan G merch that can be bought to support the charity. Back from commercial, NIKKI BELLA made her way out but not dressed to compete, mocking her sister for being ready to compete in the arena she’d quit in months ago. She mocked Daniel Bryan and took a shot at the fans being uglier than Brie’s troll husband. Nikki whined about having been put in Handicap Matches because of her sister, and then announced that “per The Authority” Brie would have to compete in a Handicap Match of her own.

Oh boy… Out comes Team Totally Green Divas and I lower my expectations accordingly. Marie started off as Nikki watched from the stage. Brie sent Marie to the corner, then controlled with an Armdrag. Marie fought back with clubbing blows but got caught with a kick when she ducked her head down. Cameron went for a cheap shot but ate a High Kick, but the distraction allowed Marie to (eventually) slam Brie down by the hair.

Cameron yelled for a tag and got it as Marie choked Brie in the corner, and Cameron got some stomps in for good measure. Another tag and both Total Divas slammed Brie’s head back to the corner. Cole mocked the other announcers for clearly having not watched Total Divas (I can’t blame them!). Cameron got back in and hit a Suplex and got a two-count as Nikki scowled from the staging. Cameron locked on a Chinlock. While the always classy Chicago fans chanted for the announcers Brie fought her way out of the corner with Elbow Strikes to both opponents. Eventually, Eva grabbed Brie’s hair to hold her, but Bella escaped at the last second to send Cameron crashing into her partner, knocking her off the apron and Brie captilised with a roll-up to get the upset win!

Brie Bella defeats Cameron and Eva Marie, Bella pins Cameron with a School Girl Roll-up.

Post-match: Nikki looked furious on the stage as her plan spectacularly backfired, and Brie led the crowds in an arena-wide chant of “Yes!” before Nikki stormed off.

Thoughts: Storyline wise it worked fine as Nikki forced her sister to go through the same things she did, but sister

LANA with her man Rusev would further aggravate America as well as taunt new rival The Big Show until said Superstar interrupted things, chasing off Team Russia and pulling down the Russian flag!

Renee Young would later interview John Cena about the main event tag match, his partner Dean Ambrose showing up as well to add his two cents.

The THIRD Match

Non-title Divas Singles Match

WWE Divas Champion AJ LEE Vs ALICIA FOX w/h PAIGE

Lee skipped her way out to the ring, and Paige made her way out to the stage but with a mic in hand. Paige talked over the chants for a Chicago quitter as she claimed Lee had taken advantage of her friendship in the past. Paige introduced her “new best friend” as Lee’s opponent as Fox came out. Remember when she was a thing?

Fox shoved Lee down and controlled with strikes, but got taken over by a Headscissors, followed by a Corner Clothesline and a wicked Spinning Kick that made Fox bail from the ring. Paige comforted her new best friend but Lee just climbed up top and crashed into both Divas with a Flying Crossbody to the floor. Paige distracted her rival, getting grabbed through the ropes by the hair but this just set Lee up to take an Axe Kick to the back, and that was enough to steal the win!

Alicia Fox defeats AJ Lee with an Axe Kick to the back.

Post-match: Paige got in some shots as Fox grabbed some sodas. Lee tried to fight back but got slaughtered by a Fox Big Boot, setting up for a RamPaige DDT to leave Lee out on the mat as Paige posed with the title.

Thoughts: A fine segment and the short match did what it needed to do. Lee having the deck stacked against her might be the freshness this feud needs, but can we handle all this crazy in one storyline?

McMahon would pop up again, giving Kane and Randy Orton a sterm pep-talk before their tag match.

Divas! Divas everywhere! Don’t think we’ll ever see the likes of three Divas matches on the show again, and with storylines a-plenty in full swing what will be in store next as the Hell in a Cell PPV approaches? Stop by in seven days and we’ll find out with the next edition of the RAW RELOADED! See you then!

Wrestle-1 Official: “No room for girls” at TNA Bound For Glory in Japan

There’s apparent bad news for fans of the TNA Knockouts, as it appears that there will not be a KOs match at the biggest TNA Pay Per View of the year.

Tweets sent out by Jimmy Suzuki, an official for Wrestle-1 (the partner company for the Japan hosted Bound For Glory event) indicated that due to giving more time to men’s matches and to W-1 Japanese stars, the Knockouts have been denied a spot on the card.

Suzuki wrote:

We have too many good cards and having difficulty make it less than 10… Sorry but I don’t think there will be a room for girls this time… We don’t want 5 min matches . We want to show good solid wrestling as a speciality of Japanese wrestling organization .

The decision seems truly bizarre considering there was no issue in using Gail Kim and Madison Rayne in a match during TNA’s last big PPV over in Japan. It seems that TNA is bowing to letting W-1 showcase its own talent, even with the risk of the majority of TNA fans not knowing, and therefore caring, about Japanese stars they are unlikely to see again.

Here’s hoping that TNA can convince W-1 to allow the Knockouts such as Kim, Havok, and Taryn Terrell to shine at what’s supposed to be TNA’s biggest PPV of the year.

RAW RELOADED [22/09/14] Getting Back on Track with the Divas Division

It’s that time of the week once again where we recap the events of the night before with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Night of Champions is in the history books and we have a brand new Divas Champion as AJ Lee managed to force bitter rival Paige to trap out in the Triple Threat match that also involved Nikki Bella. It appears the ongoing verging on HLA feud between the Anti-Diva and the now three-time champ is far from over so what new turn if any will go down on the post-NOC Raw. Will we be forced to endure more awful segments with the far from entertaining Bella Twins feud? Let’s get into it and find out…
STEPHANIE MCMAHON was seen with the rest of The Authority as they tried to lay down the law to John Cena and Dean Ambrose, but instead they made the charge to chase down Seth Rollins, leaving McMahon holding the Money in the Bank briefcase.

Former WSU Owner: “There was Absolutely No Loyalty from the Wrestlers”

The former owner of Women Superstars Uncensored has blasted the talent that had been on the shows – saying the starlets had no loyalty towards him which in turn made creating storylines difficult.

RingBellesOnline reports that Drew Cordeiro, the now former WSU owner, posted on a message board frustrations he felt while booking talent.

“I felt like there was absolutely no loyalty from the wrestlers…” Cordeiro wrote on ZandigFans website. “Which made it EXTREMELY difficult to create any semblance of continuity from show to show.” Cordeiro also claims talents would have rather “stayed at home” than pick up a paycheck, and claimed others gave an impression they were doing him a favour by accepting bookings.

Cordeiro’s reign booking WSU saw several long-time WSU stars such as Alicia and Brittney Savage depart, jilted talents taking to Twitter and social media to vent on current booking, and wrestlers taking other bookings instead of WSU shows. Most notably Jessicka Havok (Now Havok in TNA) choose to work TNA’s 2014 Knockouts Knockdown PPV taping instead of honouring her title defence as WSU Champion – leading to her being stripped of the championship and “Banned” from WSU.

WSU is now owned by DJ Hyde and CZW (WSU has been running afternoon events prior to CZW shows for a while now), after being in part ownership with Cordeiro (of Beyond Wrestling) prior.

RAW RELOADED [15/08/14] From Bland to Awful – At least Lana ended the Show!

It’s that time once again to recap all the goings on in the sports entertainment world with this, the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! Last week was truly one to forget with a garbage segment with The Bella Twins and a never-even-had-a-prime TV personality. But at least AJ Lee and Paige managed to further their story. The WWE has actually hyped a Divas match for tonight, a tag team match pitting Paige and Nikki Bella against Brie Bella and AJ Lee, again firmly combining the feuds in the Divas division. With only a few days to go before Night of Champions, will we see a turn up for the books for all these Divas? Let’s get into it and find out…

RESULT: NXT Takeover Fatal 4 Way – Charlotte Retains Over Bayley, Sasha Stakes Her Claim

NXT have held their latest live special NXT Takeover: Fatal 4 Way, which saw the NXT Women’s Championship defended.

The daughter of the Hall of Famer Ric Flair, Charlotte managed to retain the title over fan favourite Bayley in a hard fought match. The end came as Charlotte avoided the Belly-to-Bayley finisher and countered with a roll-up that send Bayley crashing into the bottom turnbuckle head-first. This led to a (less than impressively landing) Moonsault before Charlotte put the challenger away with her now renamed “Natural Selection” flip Cutter finisher.

The big story came after the match as Sasha Banks attacked a still downed Bayley before being chased away by Charlotte in an apparent show of respect. This continued during the post-Takeover Fallout show when Banks came out to interrupt Charlotte and Bayley, staking her claim to becoming the next Women’s Champion.

Elsewhere on the show former Total Divas star JoJo performed ring announcing duties, Renee Young was part of the commentary team, and in a dark match for the live crowd WWE Divas Champion Paige defeated Becky Lynch.

RAW RELOADED [08/09/14] A Show to be Skipped (Yes, the Bellas-Springer segment is that bad!)

It’s that time once again to go over what happened on that wacky Monday night sports entertainment show… This is the RAW RELOADED presented by DIVAS OF DESTRUCTION! The Bella Twins have failed to inspire with their damp performances in their sisterly feud but things may get worse as the WWE have desperately drafted in the king of car wreck TV in Jerry Springer to host a Bella face-off. The feud between Paige and AJ Lee over the Divas Championship has now been caught up in the lackluster Bella stuff when Stephanie McMahon last week granted Nikki Bella a title shot, and this past Smackdown McMahon announced a Triple Threat match between Nikki, Paige, and AJ for the title at Night of Champions. Will this week see a turnaround… Awwww who am I kidding? With Springer involved this is gonna suck!
