  1. So Kalisto went from feeling like he COULD be a star, a legit star, and then within seven days, isn't. He jobbed twice in a week on TV, and he's just doomed - even if he wins at the Rumble, he's already been dialed down. Oh, and Bray is back to being a top guy and could win the WWE World Title at the Rumble despite feuding with the Dudley Boys for about four months. Wow. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2016/01/wwe-raw-1-18-16.html Screens - Vintage MK III Vs Screen http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/tmjh5gn95b6dftu29xb7xs5yclrlojwh
  2. This wasn't the greatest show or anything, but it was a productive hour of TV. They got the Mechanics over more, gave Silas a win and boy did that do nothing for him. Loved the 2015 awards - they did more in a few minutes than Raw did in three hours with the Slammys mere weeks ago. Ciampa's squash was fun and stiff, while the opening deal made the wait for the Joe DLC in 2K16 nearly unbearable - I can't wait to have him face Zayn in that. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2016/01/wwe-nxt-1-13-16.html
  3. What a shit show this was. Everything that didn't involve the Beer Money skit was either bad or sad. Angle-Drew was okay, but not what it could've been even two years ago. Jeff Hardy did something resembling a match, and boy did TNA hype up their biggest star's return to the ring well ON A TAPED SHOW. The Anderson skit was awful, although it at least led to Reby making fish faces and the return of "asshole" on TNA TV. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2016/01/tna-impact-1-12-16.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/gc2zo7r5zkcpk1bps01a5rahespgeybu
  4. Not an amazing show as a whole, but it did feature a best of 2016 moment (in theory) with Kalisto's win. They gave him momentum that could've just been the usual on-paper momentum and made it feel tangible before the match. He got promo time to put over the title, and Lilian gave him a Spanish intro to get him more over. He was a plucky babyface in peril and had the PERFECT finish with the rana facebuster. That should've ended it, but ADR kicked out and got beat by a cradle instead. That protects ADR a bit, but didn't help Kalisto as much as it should've. Still, it took a 10 down to a 9.5. Owe
  5. Lashley vs. EC3 was fine-ish. LOLed at the schoolboy finish. Also, Smurf Jeff Hardy. They did a great job teasing Davey vs. Angle for the first and only time to deliver...Drew and Angle as a team against the Wolves and ED and EY. Beer Money reunion was fun. BPs deal didn't accomplish much, but Kong turned...re-turned heel. Also, Rebel is now a boat captain-cosplaying stripper. Viva la Boat Captain Mike Rotunda! World Title match was a fine video game match, but nothing really memorable beyond the nasty side effect on the steps and the super One Percenter. Bennett and Maria legit came off li
  6. Fine-ish show. No really spectacular matches, but they did mix things up a bit with Alberto going for a new position on the double stomp. Crazy jacked up Vince was amusing, but the booking of that match was all sorts of silly. Scott Armstrong is just back as a heel after being one for like a month in 2013. Roman vs. All in the Rumble is either a perfect way to take the title off him, or a way to cement him as the Man. I'd have HHH win it and then you have Roman take the title at WM. Maybe even have Sting come out for a run-in to play off the HHH-Sting match last year. Or better yet, have the S
  7. Amazing show. Top to bottom, it might've been better than last year - even the mid-card stuff felt more important this year. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2016/01/njpw-wrestle-kingdom-10.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/4buch0oznxhn1nnucypyoplsse9kp2cu/1
  8. The opening segment had potential and then derailed quickly. Then it got worse with Steph, which led to us getting tons and tons of recap of all this crap. Owens vs. Neville was a way to "get Neville over", but Owens wound up shining far brighter in defeat kicking his ass and then Dean later. Okay closing angle and main event though. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-raw-12-28-15.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/g7pteetfmxn8uzay7ajxcwfd8jmgxmed
  9. "Hey ladies, the real present isn't what's in the box - it's what's in the pants. Pure Sexual Chocolate."
  10. Show was an ungodly slog to get through, but at least Dean and Sheamus tried in the main event. It's crazy to think that things done off the top of the cage are now just nearfalls, but here we are. Great finish too - Dean wins by getting his ass kicked, so Sheamus lost and then got his ass kicked by Roman. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-raw-12-21-15-slammy-awards.html Screens - Leader of the women's empowerment movement http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/sg93o8h4gidlcirj0l52puzsl53iebd7
  11. Oh my God, that bump Buzz Sawyer took for Koko's dropkick was amazing. That WWE MSW set's music video for him, similarly, showed how you can take a simple thing and put your own twist on it to make it yours.
  12. DA is really easy to find - just look for bigfoot and it's right there.
  13. Fun show - not the greatest Takeover show, but there was nothing bad on the card. Asuka vs. Emma was the best match on the show overall, and while Joe vs. Balor was technically quite good, it wasn't all that special. If you imagined Joe vs. Balor in your head, this was exactly that match - nothing more. Tag title match was impressive, but JAYSUS was Enzo's whole look bad even by his standards. Super Smashing Machine was a fine finish for this, and I was amazed they didn't give the faces the win. Apollo vs. Baron was okay, but hurt by Apollo's bad striking. Bayley vs. Nia was surprisingly good,
  14. Holy shit - RAW WAS FUN. They needed to do a lot, and they hot shotted a TON here, but it worked. Vince just being in there with Roman helped Roman, and they absolutely prevented him from being Luger 2K15 tonight. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-raw-12-15-15.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/hdn9qj1h0qji4dl48jwl195q0rrsf75w
  15. The show match-wise peaked with the crazy tag team ladder match. Paige looked fine in the divas match, and I think she's a face now. Roman vs. Sheamus was a stunt show, but more of a video game match than anything else. "REIGNS HAS BEEN PUSHED FAR ENOUGH!" was hilarious. Ditto the post-match beating of HHH. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-tlc-2015-coverage.html Cole - "REIGNS HAS BEEN PUSHED FAR ENOUGH!" Cole – SAME OLD STORY AGAIN TONIGHT!

  16. Astonishing go-home show. After Raw, we actually see a program before a major show that makes you want to not only see this show, but that one too. Asuka is OFFICIALLY the smartest babyface in WWE. Also, its biggest badass since she's the first act since Brock to win via KO. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-nxt-12-9-15.html Screens - Bliss Factor http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/clyxkbf2enmisujh79tg9uckgrdr6hci
  17. So this show fucking sucked. Except for the Red Shirt Albino Ginger. He ruled. Tommy Dreamer both opened and main evented Raw in 2015. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-raw-12-7-15.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/yvnquai16w7tn52sf5pi2bqqu7b07ne6
  18. Jerry Jarret's non-union Mexican equivalent paid even worse than he did.
  19. Really fun show this week. Loved the Nia squash of Blue Pants, whose new theme sucks. Baron beat Tye in convincing fashion, and Storm looked far better in this match than his first one. The switch to the Last Call is a lateral move since the 8 Second Ride sucked. Team Gable's match ruled, and Joe vs. Ciampa was absolutely perfect. Ciampa shined a lot, while Joe looked better here than every before on NXT. It was a very rewatchable match, and a must-watch edition of NXT. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/12/wwe-nxt-12-1-15.html Screens - #goemmago http://ww
  20. Every single about this show either sucked or was counter-productive.

  21. That Charlotte action figure has some fantastic articulation.
  22. Fucking awful show. Just boring shit from beginning to end, outside of the divas match and a brief sign of life with Heath Slater being amusing. Main event was okay, and at least Barrett gets to be used in a main event angle again - so hopefully they make the most of this and at least gets some new acts heated up. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/11/wwe-raw-11-23-15.html Screens - Kofi with the best hair in the company Viva La Paige http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/eo50dqd0ryi2o5z8j5sxdmi4oxpro373
  23. Not much of a show match-wise. Alberto vs. Roman had brief flashes of greatness at the end, but nothing beyond that. Owens vs. Dean was "better", but not great. The Survivor Series matches were nothing, but Goldust's return was at least amusing. Charlotte vs. Paige was pretty bland and heatless. Wyatts vs. Brothers of Destruction was fun, but not worth rewatching beyond the entrances. Both Roman's title win and loss were LOL-worthy. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/11/wwe-survivor-series-2015.html Screens - Dolph's worst getup yet. http://www.imagebam.com
  24. Super-fun show here. We got an effective Nia squash, while Gable and Jordan looked strong against the Ascension. Emma's squash was great too, and it led to a spooky as hell Asuka bit too! Mechanics vs. Team Jobbers was fun, and Alexa vs. Bayley was excellent. Not Takeover-level, but a great TV main event that showcased Alexa's progress. Bayley has done something that not even Shane Douglas could do - get the belly to belly over as a legit finisher. Eva's promo on Bayley and the NXT crowd was so glorious too. God, what a fun TV show. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2015/11/nxt-11-18-15.h
