Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! (1/27)

I'm sorry, I can't do this anymore. I cannot in good conscience lump Lucha Underound in with the Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup. So, going forward, Lucha Underground gets its own segment, because it's too damn good not to. Plus, it's almost not even a wrestling show anymore, even though it was full of wrestling.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Jan 18-21)

One day before the Rumble, so if I wanna get predictions in, now's the time.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

So, the Wyatts are important again? One week before the PPV, and all of a sudden the Wyatts are interfering in the main events of both Raw and Smackdown and beating the shit out of everybody, including Brock Lesnar. That's a big jump for a team that was sort of kind of feuding with the Dudleys to kill time literally during the first hour of Raw this week.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (year To Date)

I know the Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup is supposed to be weekly, but with NXT doing year-end wrapup two weeks ago and the main roster being a goddamned mess, I couldn't do it. But now I sort of can.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (End of Year Edition)

The post-TLC, post-Takeover landscape in WWE is a barren landscape of treading water and mild racism. There were some good matches and a couple of bright spots, but otherwise, possibly because of the holidays, things are dead.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

Thank fuck for the New Day. It's a shame the Big E / Sin Cara spot on Monday went badly, but they're making the best of it. And their entertainment level just keeps rising. They got almost half an hour on Smackdown and a big chunk of time on Raw and New Dayed the fucking shit out of it.

Weekly Wraslin' Wroundup (Dec 13-17)

There was a lot of wrestling the past week.

LUCHA UNDERGROUND:

The new season doesn't start until the end of January, but who cares. Watch this awesome trailer over and over again until it starts.

WWE MAIN ROSTER:

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Pre-TLC Edition)

I skipped a week on the Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup, putting the lie to the word "Weekly", because, well, it looked like WWE was debuting a bunch of awful new ideas, and I wanted to see if maybe they were just new and clumsy and would get better. Nope!

Main Roster

The biggest awful idea is, of course, the League of Nations - an alliance of Sheamus, Rusev, Alberto Del Rio, and King Barrett. Sure, it seems like Del Rio's work with the League is putting an end to the awful MexAmerica idea, but that's literally the only upside.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Nov 23-26)

What's this? New Day stealing both shows? Happy Thanksgiving indeed.

Main Roster

We start the week right off the bat by setting up Reigns/Sheamus at TLC. I have to assume the plan is to put Reigns over for good at TLC. Sheamus isn't positioned for a long reign and he's someone everyone hates more than Reigns both from a storyline and workrate perspective, so nobody's gonna really boo Reigns beating him the way they hated Reigns beating Ambrose in the tournament.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Nov 16-22)

The story of main roster WWE this week is the story of Survivor Series, and the story of Survivor Series is the story of the tournament.

Main Roster

The tournament was great on Raw, with three great matches between Owens and Neville, Reigns and Cesaro, and Ambrose and Ziggler. Only Del Rio vs. Kalisto was a mess.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Nov 8-11)

As I suspected, the World Heavyweight Tournament has essentially sucked all the air out of the WWE right now, and with one exception, everything else is being ignored.

Main Roster

Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens advanced in the tournament, and will likely beat Neville this week to advance again. United States of Mexamerica champion Alberto Del Rio advanced in the tourney, and will definitely advance past Kalisto this week. Neither of them will win the tournament. But until they don't, nobody can talk about their next challengers. So those title pictures are stalled out.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Nov 2-4)

Oof. Survivor Series is right around the corner, and things became a mess very quickly. Le's get to it.

Main Roster

Stuff happened this week, but a lot of it became very irrelevant very quickly after Seth Rollins landed badly wrestling Kane in Ireland and tore every single thing you can tear in a human knee and possibly some things nobody's ever torn before. He'll be out 6-9 months, stripped of the title, and Survivor Series is being turned into a tournament to crown a new champion, most likely Rollins' original opponent, Roman Reigns.
