Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (June 20-23)

So, remember how nothing's been happening in he WWE? Well, Money in the Bank didn't change that, except for the one thing. And then real life intervened and changed another thing. Or real life changed both things. It's tough to tell.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (June 22)

Another weird week for Lucha Underground. Some solid matches, some interesting developments, but a dead Temple and some odd choices made the whole thing seem a little off.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (June 13-18)

Another week of nothing happening in the WWE.

Don't get me wrong. Some entertaining stuff happened on the shows. The New Day did an extended riff on a pair of shoes nobody likes that I only figured out once I looked it up on the Internet because I'm old. Some of the never ending combinations of Cesaro/Zayn/Owens/Ambrose/Jericho/Del Rio that kept interacting over and over again were fun. Seth Rollins was great on Raw.

But it was still just treading water to Money In The Bank, which I suppose I should predict out.

PRE-SHOW:

Dudley Boys vs. Lucha Dragons

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (June 15)

The problem with one match for the entire show is if the entire match isn't good (see Season 1's All Night Long match between Mundo and Puma) or isn't chock full of dudes (Aztec Warfare), then the rough patches drag the show down.

Six to Survive had a lot of rough patches.

"Weekly" Wrasslin' Wroundup (The End Of The Beginning Edition)

In the past two weeks, a total of two things have happened in ten hours of WWE main roster programming. AJ Styles turned heel, beat up John Cena and joined The Clerb, and The Clerb set its sights on the tag team champions.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground (June 7)

"I think Dario Cueto is the linchpin."

"Linchpin to what?"

"To the end of days."

Fuck you, entire rest of professional wrestling. This exchange, between the lady cop in charge of the Cueto investigation and the recently arrested Mr. Cisco, probably writes a check the show can't cash, but I don't care. Pro wrestling to avert the apocalypse is what I care about. And Lucha Underground delivered.

Motherfuckin; Lucha Underground! (June 1)

Man, every Time I think I'm starting to get tired of Cage.

He's the most traditional Professional Wrestler on the Lucha Underground roster. He has a single name. He has a catchphrase. He often says that catchphrase instead of saying something interesting. He's what's known colloquially as a HOSS. He's a big guy, he gets by on power moves and physique, etcetera, etcetera.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wrounduo (May 23-26)

There's a lot to talk about in the WWE this week, but we need to talk about the impending brand split first, because that shadow is going to hang over everything for the next couple of months.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (5/25)

Man, few things in this world feel better than Lucha Underground returning to form.

Two big matches, plus an entertaining small match this week, but first, a couple of storyline revelations revealed in vignettes.

First, Cortez Castro and Joey Ryan, aka LAPD officers Reyes and, I think, Joey Ryan, raid Dario Cueto's office. Ryan is pocketing some of Cueto's cash because HE'S JOEY RYAN when they get walked in on by Mr. Cisco. This leads to them breaking cover and arresting Cisco. No idea what this will mean for the Undercover Cops storyline going forward, but it's fun stuff.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Extreme Rules Predictions)

Let's talk about NXT first this week, and the WWE observations can be folded into Extreme Rules predictions after that.

The big doings in NXT are the main title, where a feud between Finn Balor and Samoa Joe has largely taken place at house shows for some reason, and has been so intense that their match in three weeks will be the first ever NXT steel cage match "to protect the NXT fans". No idea where they're going with this but they may be giving Joe his traditional two wins over the champion before the champion moves to the main roster.
