WWE Smackdown 09/20/16 Review – John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose, The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 20th edition of WWE Smackdown Live!…

This week’s Smackdown promised a strong lineup of matches that would set up for the upcoming No Mercy PPV rather nicely, with an Ic title match between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, American Alpha seeking retribution against The Usos for their heinous attack a couple of weeks ago and a main event that would see John Cena face off against Dean Ambrose.

Contract signing: Becky Lynch & Alexa Bliss

Daniel Bryan introduced Becky Lynch to the WWE Universe for the contract signing between her and Alexa Bliss. Bliss claimed Lynch was not born to be a champion; she was a lovable loser. Lynch responded that she was not born to be a champion, but she proved all doubters wrong and became one anyway. Bliss countered, promising to expose Lynch for what she really is: a one-hit wonder. She blasted her with the contract holder, »

5 Things Happening in the World of Pro Wrestling

16 September 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

1.Cm Punk lost his match against Mickey Gall at Ufc 203 this past week. While the outcome was pretty much expected by just about everyone, I have to give the guy credit. He had a dream he wanted to realize and despite the list of injuries he’s obtained through the years in the wrestling ring as well as being in his late thirties, an older age to start competing in combat sports like Mma, he fulfilled his dream. Not many people can say they did that especially with such odds stacked against them. With that being said, folks had some fun after the match creating some meme’s. While some weren’t in the best of taste, there was a funny one. I’ll leave that here.

2.Tj Perkins won the inaugural WWE Cruiserweight Classic, which was shown exclusively on the WWE Network. As the winner, he also becomes the »

T.J. Perkins wins the WWE Cruiserweight Classic and becomes the new Cruiserweight Champion

15 September 2016 3:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After ten weeks, we whittled 32 cruiserweights to just one, and T.J. Perkins shocked the wrestling world by winning the first-ever WWE Cruiserweight Classic.

It was Perkins taking on Gran Metalik after they both eliminated tournament favourites Zack Sabre Jr. and Kota Ibushii in the semi-finals, and Perkins won the match with his Knee Bar submission. But before the bout even started, Triple H made a surprise appearance to announce the winner of the match would walk into Raw on Monday night as the new Cruiserweight Champion.

Our full review of the show will be up later.

T.J. Perkins will now lead the new cruiserweight division, which currently includes Gran Metalik, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Noam Dar, Cedric Alexander, Rich Swan, Jack Gallagher, Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick. We can also assume that current Raw superstars Kalisto and Neville will join them. There are rumours that a new cruiserweight division »

WWE Smackdown 09/13/16 Review – John Cena enters the WWE title picture, The Miz & Dolph Ziggler face off and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 13th edition of Smackdown Live…

Just two days removed from the surprisingly solid Backlash PPV (read my review here), this week’s episode of Smackdown Live looked to crown a contender for Becky Lynch’s Womens title, a contender for Aj Styles’ WWE World Heavyweight title, and to determine what’s next for the Ic champ The Miz and Heath Slater & Rhyno’s Tag titles. Would Bray Wyatt get revenge on Randy Orton for costing him his match at Backlash? Will Apollo Crews and Baron Corbin be in something worthwhile?

Aj Styles meets his opponents for No Mercy

Aj Styles marched to the ring with the WWE World Championship around his waist. He bragged about his title win, boasting about now being atop the WWE mountain and how he is now “the face that runs the place”.

John Cena soon interrupted. The 15-time champ said »

Triple Threat for the WWE Championship set for No Mercy with Aj Styles defending against Dean Ambrose and a returning John Cena

14 September 2016 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Cena returned to Smackdown Live last night following his defeat against Aj Styles at Summerslam, and has already put himself in the title hunt.

Styles defeated Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship last Sunday at Backlash [read our review here], and he will now defend the title against the former champion and John Cena at No Mercy. Should Cena win, it will be his sixteenth championship reign, tying the record of the legendary Ric Flair.

In the main event of the show, Ambrose teamed with Cena to take on Styles and Intercontinental Champion The Miz, which ended when Cena pinned The Miz after an AA. Once the match was over, however, Ambrose laid out Cena with Dirty Deeds which the crowed booed heavily.

Alexa Bliss to face Becky Lynch for the Women’s Championship at WWE No Mercy

14 September 2016 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On last night’s WWE Smackdown Live, a new number one contender was crowned when Alexa Bliss won a five-pack challenge to face Becky Lynch for the Women’s Championship.

The match also featured Nikki Bella, Carmella, Natalaya and Naomi, with Bliss scoring the pinfall on Bella. Carmella had the match won after a superkick, but Bliss threw The Princess of Staten Island out of the ring to steal the pinfall. It’s a big win for Bliss, who was called up to the main roster as part of the Brand Split a few months ago.

Both Alexa Bliss and Nikki Bella sported their DC cosplays from Backlash last Sunday.

Backstage WWE Heat On Sasha Banks Raw Promo! | WrestleTalk News

8 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Michael Cole reminds us that this is the New Era at every opportunity, a lot of people have another name for this phase of WWE: The Injury Era.

Seth Rollins was out of action until May after he blew his knee out last year. Both John Cena and Cesaro have undergone shoulder surgery. Randy Orton didn’t wrestle all year until last month because of injuries. Bray Wyatt manages to damage himself every other month. Finn Balor, a day after he became the first ever WWE Universal Champion at Summerslam, had to forfeit his title because of a shoulder injury – the list goes on.

But at least all those guys have or should be able to get back in the ring. The last year or so have seen three career ending injuries – Tyson Kidd narrowly avoided paralysis when severely hurting his neck off a Samoa Joe Muscle Buster »

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 6th edition of Smackdown Live…

We are now merely days away from the first Smackdown-branded PPV, Backlash, which is still currently a 5 match event. This week’s Smackdown Live promised to push the hype surrounding those matches; Who would progress on to the Tag Team Tournament Finals? Will Randy Orton cave in to Bray Wyatt’s mindgames? What will happen when Aj Styles and Dean Ambrose come face to face in a ring before their upcoming title match?

Women’s Championship Forum

To kick things off, SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan welcomed to the ring Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella and the other women who are set to face off in the Six-Pack Challenge at Backlash.

Is Paige Done With WWE?! Alberto Del Rio Timeline Explained! | WrestleTalk News

6 September 2016 5:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This is the latest chapter in the long-running Paige-berto saga – I’m still spitballing ideas for what exactly to call it – so I’m going to do a brief timeline catch-up.

October 2015 – Alberto Del Rio returns to WWE, beating John Cena at Hell in a Cell for the Us Championship.

March 2016 – this is reportedly when Paige and Del Rio first started dating, according to PWInsider.

May 2016 – Daily Wrestling News start reporting that there’s backstage heat between Del Rio and Triple H. Alberto was apparently promised a main event push – which Dave Meltzer has since said involved being paired with Paul Heyman – but Hunter stopped it from happening.

May 2016, again – photos appeared online of Paige and Del Rio being all coupley at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida, making their relationship public. Wrestling fans hearts broke across the Internet.

27th June 2016 – Paige lost to Charlotte in a Women’s Championship match on Raw. »

2 September 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Did Kevin Owens Know About WWE Universal Title Win?! | WrestleTalk News

2 September 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

After Finn Balor’s shoulder injury meant he had to forfeit the title not even a day after he became its first holder at Summerslam, the new champion was to be decided in an elimination match between Big Cass, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.

“Yeah, I’ve read that one before. Roman wins,” we all thought. But in the closing moments of the match, Triple H made his first WWE appearance since Wrestlemania 32, pedigreeing both Reigns and Rollins to give Owens the title.

Owens’ reaction appeared so genuine, along with Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon’s facial expressions at ringside, many thought the result was a swerve on all those involved. Did Owens actually not know he’d be winning the match?

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer… »

Alberto Del Rio Done With WWE! Where Will He Go Next? | WrestleTalk News

31 August 2016 5:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

Alberto Del Rio is reportedly done with WWE. Terminado. Fin. Conclusiono.

I don’t think that last word’s Spanish. I just made it up.

Del Rio was suspended by WWE on the 17th August for his first violation of their Wellness Policy. A few hours later, his real-life girlfriend Paige was also suspended – although they were reportedly not for the same substances.

This came after months of rumours that Del Rio was very unhappy with his position in the company, and that he was heavily considering leaving WWE once his contract was up in October. Daily Wrestling News reported that Del Rio was promised a top spot within the company when he returned at Hell in a Cell last October, beating John Cena for the Us Championship on his first night back, »
