Wresting Review for the Week of 2/16/14

Monday Night Raw begins this week with John Cena coming out
to a decent ovation. He talks about his win during last week Raw main event
against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton. Cesaro comes out and says
Cena isn’t the only one to beat Orton last week as he also beat Orton during
Smackdown last Friday. Sheamus now comes out and tells them that he will do in
the main event as what they did last week and beat Orton and this Sunday he
will win the Elimination Chamber and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Christian comes out and he says he isn’t mad at Sheamus for hitting him with
the brogue kick since he knows it was an accident and this Sunday he will hit
the killswitch and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Randy Orton comes out
he says he underestimated Cesaro on Smackdown and it wont happen again. He
tells Cena that yes he did beat him last Monday but he cant ever beat him when
it matters. Orton tells Christian that they have had the best matches against
each other but Orton always won the match. He tells Sheamus he will never go
near him with the brogue kick. Daniel Bryan comes out and says the fans do all
the talking for him and he wont let this opportunity to fade away. We hear  loud ‘YES’ chants until Kane comes out. He
informs us that The Authority left him in charge of Raw. He says there will be
series of matches. He says we all know the main event tonight will be Sheamus
vs. Randy Orton. Another match will be John Cena vs. Cesaro and the first match
will be Christian vs. Daniel Bryan.

We come back from the commercial break and we see Kane
trying to get into the ring and Christian attacks Bryan even before the bell rings. He throws Bryan outside the ring
and throws him into the steel steps then into the barricade. Kane is standing
outside the ring looking happy. This looks like Christian has turned heel. The
match finally begins and Bryan
took a major beat down since he was attack blindsided. Christian works on the
arms that he slammed into the barricade. Christian goes for the killswitch but Bryan reverses it into
the yes lock but Christian counters it and throws him into the turnbuckle.
Christian goes for the killswitch again but Bryan rolls him over a pin with a win. Kane
congrats Bryan
on the win but his night isn’t over he has another match and against him.
We comeback from the commercial break Kane vs. Daniel Bryan is
in progress. Kane controlled the match working on the arm that Christian
injured on Bryan
last match. Bryan
gets some punches and kicks in but Kane tries to go for chockslam but throws
him outside. Kane puts Bryan against the ring
post and pulls the arm of Bryan.
The referee counts the five but Kane wont break the hold and gets DQ. Kane
break it and then slams the arm of Bryan
into the steps. Kane goes on the mic and says “I know I got DQ” and
smiles. I want everyone to remember that this thing with Bryan and Kane was
suppose to be CM Punk and Kane instead of Bryan
and Kane. Originally was suppose to be Kane vs. Punk at Elimination Chamber.
Maybe we will see Kane some how entering that Chamber match going on and takes Bryan out of the match to
screw him over.
Backstage we see Renee Young interviewing The Shield. Roman
Regins talks about his match against Mark Henry later that night. He says he
will do what Ambrose couldnt do and beat Henry. Ambrose asks what he is talking
about Regins tell him he lost the match and Ambrose says he softened Henry up
for Regins. Rollins says The Shield is always on the same page. They say The
Wyatts is an allusion and they wont have any affect on them. Regins says they
can believe that.
Fandango with Summer Rae vs. Santino Marella with Emma was
next. During the match Santino goes for the cobra but Summer Rae goes to the
top of the mat but Emma picks her up with a spin but gets dizzy herself.
Santino goes to check on her and he touches her hair and they stare into each
other eyes. It look like they are about to kiss but Fandango dropkicks him and
puts him back into the ring and hits a suplex on Santino for the win.
Mark Henry vs. Roman Reigns with Dean Ambrose and Seth
Rollins begins with Henry taking early control on Reigns by hitting punches and
splashes. Reigns comes back with a Samoan Drop (Ambrose was shocked). Henry
gets up after the pin and splashes Reigns again and then goes for the a
clothline but Reigns counters it with a superman punch and then a spear for the
win. After the match Ambrose and just Ambrose attacks Henry while Reigns and
Rollins ask what he is doing? They Wyatts are shown on the tron and Bray starts
to sing to them. They do the usual Wyatt talk and they come out to the ring.
The Shield wait for them to come into the ring and The Wyatt do enter the ring.
When it finally looks like they will fight Bray tells Harper and Rowan to exit
the ring and The Wyatt leaves.
There were other matches before this match between John Cena
vs. Cesaro but this match was one of the best matches of the night. A lot
happened but the main parts were Cesaro tried to put Cena into the giant swing
but Cena reverses it into STF but Cesaro counters that into a slam for a two
count. Cesaro throw Cena into the turnbuckle but Cena tackles him and hits the
five knuckle shuffle and goes for the AA but Cesaro hits a big uppercut. Once
again he goes of giant swing but Cena counters it again and hits a DDT. Cena
goes up to the top turnbuckle but Cesaro suplexs him but Cena goes for the STF
again but Cesaro finally hits the giant swing (amazing he was able to do it to
Cena) it was a biggest swing he has done in the past but still shocking he did
it to Cena. He goes for the neutralizer but Cena counters it by trying to hit
the AA but Cesaro counters it and tries to elbow him but Cena finally hits the
AA for the win.
We see backstage Randy Orton and Triple H talking. He thanks
Triple H for all the opportunities he given to him and Triple H is glad to hear
it. Orton says he knows  Batista is good
but Orton and Triple H carried Batista through Evolution. While he is saying
this Batista walks up behind Orton and calls him a “ass” and Orton
walks away really fast.  Triple H and
Batista say hi but Del Rio
interrupts them wearing a neck brace. He says he hopes Batista isn’t planning
on using his arms because he is going to break them. Batista shoves him in a cart
and walks away. Triple H checks on Del
Rio who is holding his neck.
Next match was The Wyatts vs. Sin Cara and Los Matadores
with El Torito was next. The Wyatts controlled most of the match. At the end
Bray gets tagged in and hits Sister Abigail on Sin Cara for the win. No The
Shield didn’t comes out to have a final confrontation before the Elimination
One half of the WWE World Tag Team Champions Billy Gunn vs.
Jey Uso. Road Dogg and Jimmy Uso was on commentary. Jey goes a clothline but
Billy knocks him down and sets up the fameasser but Jey counters it with a pin
for the win.  Road Dogg tries to go into
the ring but Jimmy superkicks him. The Usos super dives to the Outlaws outside
the ring.
The main event of the night was next which was Randy Orton
vs. Sheamus. This was an ok match but I still think the match from last week
Smackdown between Orton and Cesaro was a lot better.  At the end Orton goes for the RKO but Sheamus
reverses it and tries to go for the Brogue Kick but The Shield come out of no
where and attack him. John Cena and Daniel Bryan come out for the save then
Cesaro  then Christian comes running out.
The lights go out and The Wyatts are in the ring and everyone is on the mat and
only see The Wyatts and The Shield face to face. Finally we see them get into
it. Everyone is fighting each other to end this show.
Before I begin this week Impact we found out that Nelson
Fraziel Jr. also known as Mabel, King Mabel, Viscera and Big Daddy V had passed
away. Even through he has been seen on television or the wrestling scene for
while we all should remember him. From all the remarks wrestlers that knew him
had posted they all remember the kind heart he had. RIP Nelson Fraziel Jr.
Impact Wresting begins this week with a video package of Gunner
winning the feast or fired match with him grabbing the briefcase we the TNA
World Heavyweight Championship match and leading into the main event of the
night Gunner vs. Magnus for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. We see
Magnus talking to Dixie Carter asking her if she spoke to him and if he is in
(who is he that Magnus talking about). She says yes and he tells her is she
goes down he isn’t going down with her. Magnus and Dixie
come out to major heat. Magnus calls out MVP because he had a major announcement.
Last week MVP made a proposal for Lethal Lockdown Team MVP vs. Team Dixie for
control of TNA.  MVP comes out and Magnus
says he is Magnus the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He about MVP criminal
past and takes shot at him about it. MVP comes back and calls Magnus a paper
champion. MVP demands he want an answer to if the match of Team Dixie vs. Team
MVP. Magnus says they accepts but says he wont be in the match because he is
going to successfully defend the championship against Samoe Joe.
Magnus says he is going to make MVP his but before he says
anything MVP tells him not to say it  but
Magnus says he is going to make MVP his and again MVP tells him not to say
it  but Magnus says he is going to make
MVP his b****. MVP attack Magnus but ECIII comes out and attacks MVP. Backstage
we see The Wolves being held back by security and Rockstar Spud but we see The
Wolves knockout security and they throw Rockstar Spud into a cart. Gunner comes
out for the save and Magnus and ECIII walk up the ramp but The Wolves comes
from behind them and Magnus throws ECIII into them and Magnus escapes as The
Wolves kicked ECIII.
Samoe Joe comes out and makes an open challenge to anyone.
The TNA tag team champions and DJ Zema Ion come out. They surround the ring
Samoe Joe says fine he will take on all three of them. Joe takes early control
but the three of them were a little to much to for Joe. But Joe doesn’t take
the beat down to long as the takes out both the tag team champions. He set Zema
up for the muscle buster but Ion rakes the eyes but he gets hit with the S T
Joe. Joe hits the muscle buster and then puts on rear naked chock for the win.
Looks like Joe is ready and pumped up for his match vs. Magnus at Lethal
Backstage we see Bobby Roode talking to someone in a very
kindly matter and it was with James Storm. He tells Storm that recently this
job as got to him and apologizes to everything he has done to Storm and recalls
the past of Beer Money. Storm tells him that he hopes he not doing what he
thinks he is doing and tells him to rise above the power. Roode thanks Storm
for the talk and advise and they actually hug. Maybe a Beer Money reunion in
the future.
We cut to MVP/Dixie office and the X Division Champion
Austin Aries walks in. He tells Aries he wants him to join him and The Wolves
at Lethal Lockdown to be part of Team MVP. Aries asks what is in it for him?
Aries says he has been lied to in the past and MVP says he cant fix the past
but can make sure thing are fair now and in the future. We don’t get and answer
form Aries.
We see backstage Gail Kim and Madison Rayne brawling
backstage and this sets up a match Gail Kim vs. Madison Rayne in a street
fight. This is the usual knockout match but with weapons. Lei’d Tapa slams
Rayne which was legal. But Rayne fights back against Kim but Tapa interferes
again and helps Kim pick up the win.
Bobby Roode comes out to a decent ovation. Haven’t heard
this type of ovation since before he turned on Storm when he won the TNA World Heavyweight
Championship. Roode says he became a wrestler because he loves this business
and he dreamed as a kid to be a wrestler. He says he has done things in the
past that he has hurt other guys in the back who he use to call his friends and
he is sorry for ruining their friends . He cant changed the past and but only
move on. The fans are chanting his name and looks like he is getting emotional.
Is it me or does this mind us of Mark Henry fake retirement speech then
attacked John Cena?
 Roode announces that
this is the last time he will be a professional wrestler and we here fans
booing. He apologies and says he cant deal with Dixie
anymore. He says he wants to do something he never has done before and thank
all the fans and he tries to exit the ring but Dixie
comes out. She says he cant decide to leave whenever he wants since he has a
contract. She says she didn’t want AJ Styles (fans go crazy when she says his
name), Jeff Hardy and Sting in her company. She says she needs Roode to be in
the company. She says she needs a captain for Team Dixie and Lethal Lockdown
and he says are you kidding me and no. She says if he joins and they win she
will give him 10% ownership of the company. Roode says he doesn’t trust her and
she tells him to have his lawyers to draw up the paperwork and she will sign
it. He thinks about it and he agrees and the fans boo. Before he leaves the
ring he tells Dixie if she screws him over he
will destroy her and the fans cheer. Can this be a beginning of Roode face
We come back from commercial bread and Bad Influence is
talking to Bobby Roode. They say they are so excited to be on his team at
Lethal Lockdown. He informs them that they are good but they are not on the
team yet. He tells them if they win their match against The Wolves they will be
consider and walks into his locker room while Bad Influence looked shocked.
This leads in Bad Influence vs. The Wolves. Bad Influence takes early control
on Eddie. But eventually he makes the tag to Davey which leads into hitting
double foot stomp for the win.
Before the main event we see James Storm talking to Gunner
about Gunner match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. He wishes Gunner
good luck and Gunner say he has something for Storm and hands him the briefcase
for the TNA Tag Team Championship. The main event was next with was TNA World
Heavyweight Champion Magnus vs. Gunner for the TNA World Heavyweight
Championship. Before the match begins we are informed that the match will be
considered as Magnus rules. During the match Magnus calls to the back but James
Storm and The Wolves come out instead. After a few minutes Rockstar Spud and
Bromans come out and attack Gunner but Storm and Wolves fight them off to the
back. Gunner climbs on the top turnbuckle and hits the headbutt and goes for
the pin and as it looks like the referee is going to count the three Spud put
Magnus leg on the rope. Gunner goes after Spud into the ring but gets hit with
the belt and Magnus covers him but Gunner kicks out. Storm comes back out and
runs Spud out to the ring. Gunner goes to the top rope and as he comes down
Storm hits the superkick on him and Magnus pins him for the win. James Storm
just stands there looking at him as the fans are booing and show ends.
It came out that WrestleMania 30 will have a guess host and
that will be WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan and this Monday on Monday Night Raw
Hulkamania will run wild as Hulk Hogan will return.
Friday Night Smackdown begins with Daniel Bryan coming out
to a huge ovation and we are shown a recap from this past Raw of him wrestling Christian
then wrestling Kane and Kane injuring Bryan
arm. Daniel Bryan vs. Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter and Ceasro was the first
match of the night. Bryan
starts by applying a headlock but Swagger whips him. Bryan knees him and kicks him in the corner.
Swagger takes over working on the injured arm but Bryan comes back and surprises Swagger with
the running knee for the win.
Vickie Guerrero comes out Kane and informs Bryan that his night isn’t over and just like
Raw he will have a second match and it would be against Cesaro. Bryan is staring at them
and Cesaro attacks him from behind. This match was to long. Kane is by the
commentary table but he goes into the ring and chockslams Bryan and referee calls for the DQ. Kane goes
on the microphone and says Cesaro is DQ and your winner Daniel Bryan and
Next match was Rey Mysertio and The Brotherhood vs. The
Wyatt Family. The Wyatts controlled the match mostly on Goldust.  Toward the end Mysterio goes to dive onto
Harper but he catches him and swing him into the barricade. Rhodes
dives onto him as Goldust bulldogs Rowan and set him for shattered dreams but
Bray punches him out of nowhere and hits Sister Abigail for the win.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Titus O’Neil was next with Darren Young on
commentary. Titus tries to hip toss Ziggler but Ziggler counters it and kicks
him. Toward the end O’Neil  throws
Ziggler to the mat but Young goes to the grab the whistle and distracts O’Neil
allowing Ziggler to roll him up for the pin.
Road Dogg with Billy Gunn vs. Jimmy Uso with Jey Uso was
next. Road Dogg begins with a headlock onto Jimmy then jabs him a couple of
times. He hits a few cheap shots on Jimmy but Jimmy hits the superkick on Road
Dogg for the win.
Christian is being interview backstage by Renee Young. She
asks about his new attitude we saw on Raw. He says that he wants to be WWE
World Heavyweight Champion and he doesn’t care how is acting as long as he has
his one more match since he doesn’t know how many more years he has in himself
due to injuries.
The main event was Sheamus vs. Christian. Sheamus comes out
then Christian and honestly Christian came out to a decent ovation better than
the one I thought he would. He mostly played the heel of the match. This was an
ok match but things picked up towards the end. Sheamus hits two backbreakers
and goes for the brogue kick but Christian 
rolls to the outside and tries to hit Sheamus with a cheap shot.
Christian goes for the killswitch but Sheamus hits him with white noise for the
win to end Smackdown. Yes this ended Smackdown which not a good way to end the
show before a pay per view. The best thing they should have done is at least
have each member come out and stare at each other and maybe have them look at
the WrestleMania sign and have them attack each other or something.
Here are the matches for the Elimination Chamber PPV:
Kickoff Show: The Brotherhood vs. Rybaxel
Elimination Chamber Match: Randy Orton(c) vs. John Cena vs.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus vs. Christian vs. Cesaro
Batista vs. Alberto Del
The Wyatts vs. The Shield
Intercontinental Championship: Big E(c) vs. Jack Swagger
Tag Team Championship: New Age Outlaws (c) vs. The Usos

Darren Young vs. Titus O’Neal

One Thought to “Wresting Review for the Week of 2/16/14”

  1. Was a bit upset that they didn't do a "In Memory Of" for Viscera (aka Big Daddy V) on Raw. great to see Hogan back. Thought the point of the hand to ear move was to see which direction he would hit a muscle pose for but looks like he's done with that part.
