Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Mar 7-12)

Speed Bump... I mean, Roadblock was this weekend, and it didn't actually affect anything, but there were a couple good matches. And some good wrestling on the shows, too.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

Keeping with the Road to Wrestlemania theme, let's check in on our matchups.

ROMAN REIGNS VS. HHH / AMBROSE VS. LESNAR

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (Mar 9)

Now, that's what I call a return to form! So much good going on this week.

THE VIGNETTES:

The Mack convinces Sexy Star to overcome her trauma and face her fears by joining him at ringside for his match with Marty The Moth. This will prove to be a bad idea.

Fenix gets a characer profile. HE was poor but he's a fighter.

Drago confronts Jack Evans, but is attacked by PJ Black with his own nunchucks. What ensues is a two-on-one nunchuck fight in the bathroom, because OF COURSE IT DOES. Drago loses the fight, but is rescued by Aerostar, who has GREEN LED LIGHT UP NUNCHUKS.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground (3/2)

Despite two solid matches this week, this episode ended up less than the sum of its parts.

THE VIGNETTES:

Mil Muertes wants to fight. Catrina won't let him. Mil Muertes tries to force the issue, but Catrina CAN TELEPORT and is having none of it.

We have a commercial for Famous B, which is being watched by El Dragon Azteca Jr., before Rey Mysterio interrupts him for more training and destiny talk.

King Cuerno gets a character promo for his ladder match with Fenix.

Mil Muertes wants to defend his title against both Pentagon Jr. and Prince Puma next week.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground

This will shock you, but I really enjoyed Lucha Underground this week.

THE VIGNETTES:

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Feb 22-25)

They do realize we can just go back and watch younger versions of all this on the Network, right?

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

The entire first half hour of RAW was devoted to the McMahon family struggling for control of the company. Shane McMahon returned, looking and sounding more like his dad than ever, which is creepy. Anyway, it's Shane vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania for control of Monday Night Raw, which is a match I don't want to see and an outcome that is predictable, because if Shane's not winning, what's the point?

OLDNERD Speed Round!

I've been really busy the past week and a half working on a hobbyist project I will go into great detail on when it's done, so let me make up for lost time with a quick with a Metahumanity/Lucha/WWE Speed Round.

THE FLASH: Better but still sloppy. Need to go into the difference between "breezy" and "sloppy" at some point.

AGENT CARTER: Two more great episodes. Hard to believe there's only three left. The other side of The Flash's "breezy vs. sloppy" argument.

ARROW: Hate the Sekrit Son plot. It's dumb. Handled competently, at least, and fun.

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (Feb 10)

A bounce back toward the insane quality of the first episode this week. Things were just nuts.

THE VIGNETTES:

We've got some fun story vignettes around the Fenix-King Cuerno rivalry. Fenix wants a rematch. Catrina wants Fenix out of the picture, and sends Cuerno to finish the job he started in a Last Luchador Standing match that is tonight's main event. As suspected, Cuerno is holding Gift of the Gods so that nobody can challenge Muertes for the title.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Feb 1-4)

Boooooored. Bored bored bored bored bored. Booooored.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

Nearly everyone seems lost and aimless on the shows leading up to Fastlane. For example, we know Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar are fighting for the Wrestlemania main event against Triple H. So fine, on Raw we have a talky talky opening segment with them, and then Lesnar interrupts the tag main event to kill everyone. That's fine. It's dull, but it makes sense.

Motherfucking Lucha Underground! (2/3)

We have a somewhat more traditional episode of Lucha Underground on the air this week. Not quite the barn-burner the season operner was, but somehting closer to an episode you'd see towards the middle of season one.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Jan 24-28)

You can take the Lucha Underground out of the Weekly Wrasslin' Wrounup, but you can't take the comparisons to Lucha Underground out.
