Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (April 6-10)

A tough call this week in the Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup. Do I go with the most spectacular in-ring action, or the most effective overall package? Ultimately...

WWE NXT

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Mar 30 - Apr 3)

Another format tweak! Yay!

LUCHA UNDERGROUND

...which included another decent match in the Aerostar-Drago series, and promise for the future in the form of a new Trios tag title and a vignette for a new wrestler who's trying to AVENGE THE DEATH OF HER PARENTS!!!!

was better than...

WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW

Nerd Super Bowl Wrapup

And so, the Nerd Super Bowl is over. And I have to say, going in with low expectations did not hurt. Let's revisit the predictions and results real quick.

OVERALL ENJOYMENT OF THE SHOW:

It did drag. There's no doubt about that. But at least two of the matches I expected to suck like the void itself ended up being pretty damn entertaining. A 30% smaller turd than I was expecting.

WWE World Title: Brock Lesnar (C) vs. Roman Reigns

Wrestlemania 31 Predictions

Based on the You Are Dumb principle that a cynic is rarely disappointed and occasionally surprised, my Wrestlemania 31 predictions will come in two forms for every match - what I as a cynic think WILL happen, and what I want to happen, even though it'd surprise the shit out of me if it did.

Weekly Wrasslin' Roundup - Pre-Wrestlemania Edition

Let's face it. The Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup is really just an exploration of whether Lucha Underground or NXT were better that week. That's never going to change.

Take this week. Raw was boring and Smackdown was barely a show, with an opening match and a closing match and nothing but Wrestlemania hype in the middle. Of a two hour show. Thank fuck for DVR's.

MATCH OF THE WEEK: Kevin Owens v. Finn Balor, NXT Championship

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup, 3/16-20

Shows watched: Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground, NXT, Smackdown

Still behind on: New Japan Pro Wrestling (three weeks behind, watched two over the weekend, one OK one good.)

Match of the Week:

Mil Muertes vs. Fenix, Grave Consequences, Lucha Underground.

The Roman Reigns Problem

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup

Shows watched: Monday Night Raw, Lucha Underground, NXT, Smackdown

Still behind on: New Japan Pro Wrestling (four weeks behind by now)

Match of the Week:

Johnny Mundo v. King Cuerno, steel cage, Lucha Underground.

Lucha Underground's first (I think) steel cage match did not disappoint. Good story, lots of innovative offense, and good pacing, which is especially difficult in a cage match. Mundo wins with End of the World of the top of the goddamned cage.

Show of the Week: Lucha Underground
