20170214_fastlane-39c8e1362f57303d8ace031a33a137f8

Hey folks! It’s Jack Wannan once again. Today, I will be doing live coverage of WWE Fastlane! If you can’t catch the show, this is the place for you to check. There will be timestamps throughout the night so you can see when there are updates. Make sure to come back every 15-20 minutes for more updates!

6:45PM: The pre-show is starting soon! Grab the popcorn, and get ready!

The pre-show can be viewed for free here:

7:00PM: The pre-show is live! We go right to the analyst desk inside the arena.The crew on the desk is Renee Young, Booker T, and Peter Rosenberg. Booker T does the first pop culture reference on the show, referencing the Daytona 500, which happened last week. Speaking of Booker, the crowd gave him a huge reaction when he started talking.

7:03PM: Charly Caruso will be in the social media lounge tonight, interviewing Samoa Joe during the second half of the hour. A match is also scheduled for the pre-show too.

7:13PM: We get shown a backstage segment from earlier where Brian Kendrick motivates Noam Dar as they are teaming later on tonight. Kendrick implies that Alicia will have a meltdown ringside, which makes Fox freak out. Dar diffuses the situation, but Kendrick leaves saying “I don’t do crazy”, making Fox flip out again.

7:16PM: Cesaro and Sheamus are at the analyst desk. Cesaro is frustrated because he feels the fans doesn’t want to see him talk, they want to see him fight. The whole desk says that Gallows and Anderson will win the tag match tonight.

7:2oPM: Mick Foley is backstage on the phone with Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie’s flight is delayed, and she is mad at Mick. As they are on the phone, Jinder Mahal walks in and says that him and Rusev are no longer a team. Mahal and Rusev start arguing. Mick Foley sets up some sort of thing between them later tonight, but it’s very confusing what it was. As Foley walks out of the scene, Stephanie is still on the phone saying “Mick?”

7:26PM: It is time for the Samoa Joe interview. The first question is “Why did you side with Triple H, and why did you attack Seth Rollins?”. Joe said that he was presented with an opportunity, and he wanted to make an impact. Second question was how does he plan on destroying Sami Zayn tonight? He says that he has done it before and he can do it again. Third question was what Joe’s plan for Wrestlemania? He said that his plan will be revealed eventually, but he wants to make an impact. Good segment.

7:40PM: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa vs Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar

20170227_fastlane_kickoffmatch-72eaa61879ad2f3999580664c5d5b61e 

We head to the commentary booth with Austin Aries, Michael Cole, and Corey Graves. Our first match is up next, but before that we see a teaser of Austin Aries, and his eventual in-ring return. Our first match of the night is from the Cruiserweight division. A combination of two rivalries, if you will. Swann and Tozawa face Kendrick and Dar. Tozawa starts off against Dar. Early on in the match Swann and Tozawa try for double dives, but they stop because Fox stands infront of Kendrick and Dar. We go to a quick commercial break.

After the break Tozawa is in the ring under the control of Brian Kendrick. “Taking him to school” as Aries described. Swann gets the hot tag on Dar. Standing frogsplash by Rich gets a kickout. Swann and Dar wear eachother down, and another hot tag happens, this time Tozawa and Kendrick. Kendrick and Dar get thrown to the outside once again. The double dives by Tozawa and Swann work this time around. Swann and Dar are the legal men. Tozawa and Kendrick are brawling outside the ring as Swann hits the Pheonix Splash on Dar for the win.

7:54PM: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa def. Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar

7:55PM: PPV to start soon.

8:00PM: The PPV is underway! It starts off with a video package hyping up the show. After that we get a quick pyro show, then we head to our first match!

8:04PM: Sami Zayn vs Samoa Joe

20170215_fastlane_zaynsamoa-43f976a166046162517a9d25c740c9bb

It’s time for our first match of the PPV, Sami Zayn vs Samoa Joe! Sami is happy heading to the ring, but he buckles down and is serious once the match starts. The match is at a very slow pace from the get-go. Samoa Joe wears down Zayn with strikes. The crowd does not react too much to what is happening. Sami Zayn starts to slowly make a comeback. He hits the Blue Thunder Bomb, but gets a kickout. Joe hits his patented Senton. Zayn kicks out. After that move, Joe goes back to his jabs and strikes. Joe hits the ropes for a move, but Sami collapses. When Joe walks towards him, Zayn hits a roll-up pin. Zayn must have been “playing possum”. The two are on top rope. Joe tries for the Superplex but it doesn’t work. Both of them get off the top rope. Zayn tries for a Helluva Kick but he gets slammed down by Joe. Joe hits Zayn with the Cohena Clutch (Might have spelt it wrong lol) to end the match. Crowd is dead silent.

8:17PM: Samoe Joe def. Sami Zayn

8:19PM: Bayley is interviewed backstage. Bayley says that Charlotte has the advantage. Bayley challenges Charlotte to leave Dana Brooke in the locker room for tonights match. Nia Jax walks into the scene and says that she will rip her “best friend” (Sasha Banks) to shreds.

8:21PM: Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (RAW Tag Team Championship Match)

20170220_fastlane_tagteam-6d931ba09870ef4b0872e67980c0ff06

Our first tag match of the PPV is up next! Enzo Amore and Big Cass face the tag champs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson for the RAW Tag Team Championships. Enzo and Cass make many, many Milwaukee references while on the mic before the match. Cass and Anderson start off in this match. Gallows gets thrown to the outside alongside his partner Karl, and Enzo gets thrown onto both of them. Back in the ring is Anderson and Enzo. As they get back in the ring, the champs have control in the match. Enzo is isolated in the champs corner. Anderson and Gallows are frequently tagging in and out to keep Enzo in their corner. This goes on for quite some time.

Finally, after a very long time, Big Cass gets the hot tag. Cass hits a big boot to Anderson. The team hits Bada Boom Shaka Laka and go for the pin, but Gallows drags Enzo out of the ring during the pin. Anderson hit Enzo with a knee a minute later. When he goes for the pin, Enzo has his leg on the rope, but the ref doesn’t notice because Gallows pushed Enzo’s foot off.

8:36PM: Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson def. Enzo Amore and Big Cass to retain the RAW Tag Team Championships

8:38PM: Stephanie is on the phone with Mick again. Her flight is still delayed and she says that she won’t make it to the show.

8:40PM: Nia Jax vs Sasha Banks

20170227_fastlane_sashania-83b299eddb933e5d9783843e927aa47a

We have had our first singles match, our first tag match, and now we will have our first women’s match of the night! Nia Jax faces Sasha Banks in a grudge match. Sasha Banks is working the “wearing down” gimmick on Jax, which is basically attacking Jax with strikes, and Jax nosells most of them. Anyways, Nia Jax has control over this match for most of the time. Sasha shows almost no offence in this match. Crowd is not showing much interest in this match. Nia Jax puts Sasha in the Torture Rack and starts to squat while doing that. Sasha reverses it into a sleeper. Jax escaped by running Sasha into the corner. Sasha jumps back onto Nia’s back for another attempt at the sleeper. Nia throws Sasha off this time. Sasha hits a DDT into a Banks Statement next. Crowd starts to make noise for that. Jax reverses by Slamming down Banks then leg dropping her. After that, Jax tries for something, but Banks hits a roll-up pin for the win. Crowd pops for this. Jax looks shocked.

8:52PM: Sasha Banks def. Nia Jax

8:55PM: Rusev and Jinder Mahal find opponents

It’s time for whatever Mick planned for Jinder Mahal and Rusev. When the two get to the ring, they immediately start to argue. They then start to brawl. Jinder awaits his opponent. Cesaro and Sheamus come out. Cesaro will face Jinder Mahal first. The crowd was silent for this match. As was I. This was a RAW mid-card match. Cesaro gets the victory after some slow pace fighting. Who cared about the match. It was a waste of everyone’s time.

After the match, Jinder gets beaten up by Rusev. Who answers Rusev’s challenge? Big Show! Big Show and Rusev battle for quite some time. Big Show Chokeslam’s Rusev two times in a row. He looks around at the crowd, then chokeslams Rusev for the third time. Rusev is lying in the corner after, and eats a knockout punch to end the match. Rusev and Jinder both take their loses and leave.

9:18PM: Jinder and Rusev lose their matches lol

9:23PM: Jack Gallagher vs Neville (Cruiserweight Championship Match)

20170215_fastlane_nevillegallagher-813385b353052187a3bf59173d245772

Our second Cruiserweight match is for the Championship! Jack Gallagher faces the champion Neville! Before the match we see another Austin Aries hype video. The two grapple and trade strikes at the start. It is still a very back and forth match as bigger moves start to get used. Gallagher does a dive at one point, which feels almost out of character for him, but still cool. After that both of them go to the top rope and Gallagher hits a Superplex. Later on Neville throws Gallagher onto the ropes then does a very fast suplex that looked ugly. Neville follows up with his crazy flippy thing then goes for a pin but Gallagher kicks out.

Gallagher starts to make a comeback, hitting Neville with two headbutts in a row. Minutes later Neville sits on the top rope again but he gets hit with another headbutt. Gallagher then gets pushed off the ropes, Neville hits the Red Arrow right after to give Neville the win.

9:39PM: Neville def. Jack Gallagher to retain the Cruiserweight Championship

9:42PM: Backstage we have a suprise interview with Paul Heyman. Paul says that Brock is allowed at the event tonight, but he can’t confirm or deny if he will show up. He also claims that no matter who wins tonight, Brock will win in the end.

9:44PM: The New Day come out, with an ICE CREAM BIKE! They say that they will have ice cream when they are hosting Wrestlemania. That ends the segment.

9:55PM: Roman Reigns vs Braun Stroman

20170214_fastlane_romanstrowman-33576e6a413f0bdc13490a3903f902a5

After Braun said he wanted more of a challenge, he gets exactly that tonight! Braun Stroman squares off against Roman Reigns! Crowd gives Roman very loud boo’s as he enters the building. Reigns is struggling in this match as Stroman goes about his business. Stroman hit a Samoan Drop, a splash, and many other moves to wear down Reigns. Reigns slowly starts to make his comeback by dodging moves. Stroman tries to dive onto Reigns in the corner but Roman dodges and Stroman hits the post. Roman hits a drive by a few minutes later. Reigns tries for the spear through the barricade but Stroman picks up Reigns and slams him through an announce table. Later on, Stroman heads to the TOP ROPE and tries for something but Roman dodges. He hits the spear right after for a 3 count to end the match.

10:14PM: Roman Reigns def. Braun Stroman

(FUN FACT: This is the first singles loss that Braun Stroman has ever taken.)

10:17PM: Backstage we see Mick Foley talking to Joe saying that he doesn’t want Joe helping Owens out in the main event. Joe does not say anything, he just walks away.

10:23PM: Charlotte vs Bayley (RAW Women’s Championship Match)

20170215_fastlane_bayleychar-b0b64bdd7a93e2af2be84ab94a5c6e2c

The RAW Women’s Championship gets defended in our second-last match tonight. Charlotte walks out with Dana Brooke, but tells Dana to go backstage before she is done walking off the ramp. Charlotte’s undefeated 1-0n-1 PPV record is really emphasized by the commentators.

Bayley showed dominance at the start of the match. So much so that Charlotte had to run outside the ring to catch a breather at one point. Charlotte does regain control though when Bayley decided to go outside the ring too.

They battle back and forth for nearly 20 minutes. But as the fight continues, Sasha Banks runs down to the ring all of the sudden. She attacks Charlotte but the bell does not get rung. Bayley hits a Bayley-2-Belly outside the ring, then does it once more inside the ring for the pin.

I don’t get how this match didn’t end via DQ. The crowd sounded confused and quiet for that crowd finish. WTF happened.

10:44PM: Bayley def. Charlotte to retain the RAW Women’s Championship

10:53PM: Goldberg vs Kevin Owens (WWE Universal Championship Match)

20170214_fastlane_kogoldberg-8db8a44e4c159ce5e85c38cf6594d9c3

FINALLY! It’s time for our main event of the evening! Goldberg faces the champ Kevin Owens! Goldberg chants erupt throughout the arena as Goldberg makes his entrance. Kevin Owens also gets a big reaction from the crowd, but not as much as Goldberg did.

Here we go! Just before the ref rings the bell, Owens steps out of the ring for a quick timeout. The more time he takes outside the ring, the more heat the crowd gives him. Kevin Owens finally mans up and gets in the ring for the match. Jericho’s music hits just as the bell rings, and Goldberg hits his Spear and Jackhammer to become the NEW Universal Champion as Chris Jericho watches from the ramp. WOW. Lots of stuff to discuss tomorrow on Monday, but I gotta sleep.

That wraps up the show!

2017 Elimination Chamber Live Coverage

Hello folks! My name is Jack Wannan and I will be doing coverage for the 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV throughout the night! Make sure to come back periodically for updates and recaps on what goes on during the show! Also be sure to keep track of the team on social media tonight! Follow @MindofCarnage and @JackWannan on Twitter!

6:50PM: The kickoff show starts at 7PM EST and can be viewed for free. Here is the think to the kickoff show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL8pHOKNpV8

7:00PM: The kickoff show is live and starts with the analyst desk conversing. The desk consists of Renee Young, Booker T, Sam Roberts, and Carmella. Dasha is backstage at the Social Media Lounge and will interview Becky Lynch later. We get a look at the NEW Elimination Chamber. It looks more square, and larger. It has good square zones for jumping, above every chamber.

7:08PM: Here is what the new Chamber looks like:

7:27PM: While the kickoff show panel is underway, James Ellesworth walks into frame and says that he got him and Carmella skybox tickets. Carmella uses this as an excuse to leave the analyst desk, and takes off her microphone. Ellesworth is wearing his golden outfit that was picked out a few weeks ago. The kickoff match and the Becky Lynch interview are still to come.

7:34PM: It’s time for the Becky Lynch interview in the social media lounge with Dasha. First question is “Are you excited to disarm Mickie James?” in which Becky replied with “Yes”. “If you could tag team with anybody” was the next question, with Lynch replying “Shawn Michaels” because she could be the “Armbreak kid”. Third question was if she watched any old Mickie matches to prepare for the match. Lynch said yes and praised what James has done in the past. That wrapped up the interview.

7:41PM: Curt Hawkins vs Mojo Rawley

20170206_ec_kickoff_match_mojohawkins-d6a4117b4902136ea7a3d2cd790b2446

It’s time for our Kickoff match! The four commentators that we usually get for Smackdown Live are calling this match. This match is an odd pairing, but maybe a story could develop from this match. Let’s see. The only beef that these two have is some shots and Hawkins fired on Twitter recently. Still not sure what Hawkins’ character is. The match has a very slow pace right as it starts. 2 minutes into the match Mojo barely beats a 10 count, getting in the ring at 8. We go to a 1 minute commercial break. Slow back and forth action continues. Mojo mounts a comeback with a Stinger Splash and a stomach-first slam. Pin attempt after is kicked out. Hawkins responds with a Downward Spiral. Mojo kicks out of that move too. Mojo reverses a move that Hawkins was setting up for, and hits a running punch and slam to get the win at 8 minutes and 3 seconds.

This wraps up the pre-show coverage. The rest of the show is on the WWE Network

7:53PM: Mojo Rawley defeats Curt Hawkins (8:03)

Highlights:

Post Match Interview:

8:00PM: The PPV is live! It starts with an Elimination Chamber hype video. We get the cool pyro as usual, then we go to our first match, Becky Lynch vs Mickey James.

8:03PM: Becky Lynch vs Mickie James

20170206_ec_match_beckymickie-523ffa2dafbaed9d9e17f0c305ebc8e7

The two go into a tie-up at the start of the match. The tie-up continues until they both roll outside the ring. The two of them walk back into the ring and continue the match. The two fight outside the ring again just a minute later. Mickey is targeting the arms quite often early on in the match. Mickey shows lots of dominance throughout the first 5 minutes of the match. Crowd nearly silent during the mid part of this match. Becky makes a comeback 8 minutes into the match and hits the Exploder Suplex. A noticeable cut starts bleeding on Mickie’s left elbow.  Becky continues to sell her arm very well. James hits the Mick Kick and goes for the pin. Lynch kicks out. Becky makes another comeback and tries for the Disarmer. James tries to reverse into a roll up pin, but Lynch responds with a roll-up of her own to win the match. The match ends after 11 minutes of competition.

8:18PM: Becky Lynch defeats Mickie James

Highlights:

8:19PM: Dasha is in the Carmella and Ellesworth Skybox and Carmella says that the “wrong woman won” that match.

8:21PM: Apollo Crews and Kalisto vs Dolph Ziggler

20170206_ec_match_crewskalistoziggler-48307b224f357f2469d3044dcc25916e

As Kalisto makes his entrance, Ziggler throws Kalisto against the entrance wall. Kalisto is too injured to compete, and the match is now Crews vs Ziggler. Ziggler has control of the match for the first few minutes. Kalisto heals up and joins the match at the 7 minute mark. I guess it was a 2-on-1 the whole time? Apollo Crews gets the pin after 7 minutes of fighting. After the match, Ziggler continues to fight. He takes down Kalisto and Crews, and wedges a chair on one of Crews’ feet. He stomps on the ankle, and Crews sells it like murder. He decides to do it once more. Ziggler walks off and we cut to commercials.

8:35 PM: Apollo Crews and Kalisto defeat Ziggler

Highlights:

Post Match Interview:

8:36 PM: Tag Team Turmoil Match

20170131_ec_match_tagteams-974e3df539ec447ccaaae0357e945e16

It’s time for our first title match of the night, the tag team turmoil match! The tag team turmoil match starts with Heath Slater and Rhyno versus The Fashion Police, AKA Fandango and Tyler Breeze. Good back and forth action between these two teams lasts quite an amount of time. Fandango pins Heath Slater who was the illegal man in the ring. As Fandango gets up, he eats a Gore from Rhyno got eliminate the two. The Vaudevillians come out next to face Slater and Rhyno. After only a couple minutes, The Vaudevillians get eliminated by Heath Slater. The Usos are the next challengers. The Usos eliminate Heath Slater and Rhyno and American Alpha come out next. These two teams get much more time than the last two teams. Jason Jordan gets a hot tag and starts going crazy. Gable tags in as The Usos are stills fighting Jason. Chad Gable walks in the ring and gets a roll-up to eliminate The Usos. After being eliminated The Usos beat up American Alpha and they do it well. A Frogsplash onto Jason Jordan ends the brawl. The Ascension make their way to the ring once the brawl finally ends.

The Ascension try to pick the scraps but American Alpha still have some fight left in them. American Alpha make a comeback and win the match via Grand Amplitude. They retain their Tag Team Championships. I was not that interested in this match, and I found it kind of lame. Maybe this was just because I was hoping for The Revival to debut in this match.

9:00PM: American Alpha win Tag Team Turmoil

Highlights:

9:06PM: Nikki Bella vs Natalya

20170131_ec_match_natanikki-80626b027eb08f2cd5c9b7f9dbfbf656

The second out of the trio of Women’s Matches is Nikki Bella vs Natalya, and it’s the next match on the card! This match had very slow paced back and forth action. The crowd did not react to anything that was going on. Nikki Bella’s mother and brother are shown ringside during this match. Nikki Bella gets fired up after Nattie says “You can’t see me bitch”. Nikki’s comeback does not last long as Natalya regains the advantage minutes later. Later on both wrestlers trade blows on the top rope, and Natalya hits a Superplex. Nikki Bella goes for John Cena’s trademark submission move the “STF” for the second time, but Natalya escapes again. The two of them brawl outside the ring until the ref calls a double countout. The brawl outside the ring looked like blatant stalling. Before the countout, we saw Nikki make a last ditch attempt to run in the ring, but Natalya stopped her, hence the double countout. But what’s interesting is that Nikki did maybe the slowest run ever to the ring. It was painfully obvious what the finish to the match would be. After the match we get a brawl, ending with Natalya running away as the ref holds Nikki back.

9:22PM: Nikki Bella vs Natalya ends in a double countout

Highlights:

9:22PM: Carmella, still in the Skybox, says that the two who were wrestling have “Major issues’ and are out of control, and Ellesworth says the same thing

9:29PM: Randy Orton vs Luke Harper

20170206_ec_match_harperorton-0fb251a6082b318ec5fa24a508bbccde

It’s Family vs Family up next when Luke Harper faces Randy Orton! 8 minutes into the match Luke Harper does a mini-Swanton over the ropes (whatever it’s called) and a big boot to follow. Randy kicks out. Orton’s trademarked rope DDT gets reversed by Harper right after. Luke Harper further showcases his highflying with a Tope Suicida, sending Orton over the German commentary table. Harper follows that up by throwing Orton down onto the English table. Orton and Harper re-enter the ring at the 7 count. Orton reverses Harper into a very big Superplex. The first part of the match was slow, but this part really caught my attention. Minutes after the Superplex, Orton calls for an RKO. Harper gets up and nails Orton with a Superkick. A second one follows. Orton kicks out at 2 and a half. Harper goes for a Powerbomb that leads to a kickout. The crowd is very intruiged by the match at this point. Harper trying for a clothesline gets reversed into an RKO out of nowhere for the win. What a match this was! I loved it.

9:48PM: Randy Orton def. Luke Harper

Highlights:

9:52PM: A fight breaks out backstage between Natalya and Nikki Bella.

9:52PM: Naomi vs Alexa Bliss (Smackdown Women’s Championship Match)

20170131_ec_match_blissnaomi-4b8347c4d96d9b5a21cfcdb03ec4e4d4

The Women’s Championship sees a new challenger in Naomi. Will the champion Alexa Bliss still be able to call herself #1 by the end of the night? Let’s find out! Early on in the match it is apparent that Naomi is giving Alexa Bliss a run for her money. The match stays back and forth as it heads past the 10 minute mark. At one point Alexa Bliss throws a temper tantrum out of frustration. The Twisted Bliss gets reversed by Naomi putting her knees up. Naomi reverses and hits a moonsault off the turnbuckle to win the championship and become the new Smackdown Women’s champion. Even though it was a great match, it seemed like a bit of an ugly finish. Seemed like Naomi’s legs landed on Bliss’ side. Anyways, after the match Naomi gets interviewed and gives a very good, short promo. Crowd was very happy about this. This was a good quick title match. I am very happy to see Naomi as champ.

10:07PM: Naomi def. Alexa Bliss to become new Champion

Highlights:

10:07PM: Carmella gets interviewed again in the Skybox. Dasha gets immediately sent out of the Skybox because they were annoyed that they were repeatedly being interviewed.

10:14PM: It is time for the Elimination Chamber match!

20170131_ec_match_6man-3dca5a316c81aea680e0a6c3bdc5a6cd

It is time for the Elimination Chamber match! AJ Styles and John Cena will start in the ring, as the other four competitors are in chambers, awaiting their entrance. The two wrestlers trade moves for five minutes, and then the next entrant comes in. That next entrant is Dean Ambrose! Ambrose goes right after Cena. Lots of fighting happens outside the ring in the floored area. Ambrose stands above his pod and jumps down with an Elbow onto Cena. Ambrose has control for the most part, until Bray Wyatt becomes the fourth entrant. Wyatt clears house when he enters. Styles climbs up the Chamber with Cena. They climb to a part of the cage higher than the pods. They trade blows, until Cena crashes onto the ground. Styles walks over to a pod where Dean Ambrose is standing. They both bash their heads on the plexiglass on the wall above the pod. Ambrose falls off, while Styles stays resting above the pod. Bray Wyatt delivers 3 man Superplex with Ambrose and Styles involved. The next entrant comes in, being Baron Corbin. As the final entrant The Miz walks into the ring, Baron Corbin gets eliminated by Ambrose via roll-up. Out of frustration Corbin beats up Ambrose even more, throwing Ambrose THROUGH the plexiglass of one pod. The refs try their best to get Corbin out of there, but he continues the assault. Corbin hits the End of Days on Ambrose, then finally decides to leave the ring.

The Miz pins Ambrose in the middle of the ring, taking advantage of what Corbin did, eliminating Ambrose. The crowd boo’d quite a bit for that elimination. The Miz does more “YES” chants, mocking Daniel Bryan. John Cena eliminates The Miz, then tries to eliminate Styles. Styles reverses an AA into a Styles Clash. A minute later, Cena gets on top of a pod and delivers a cross body onto Bray and Styles. Bray Wyatt hits the Sister Abgail on Cena after reversing an AA, pins Cena and eliminates John Cena! This means that we will have a new champion tonight!

It’s down to two. Bray Wyatt and AJ Styles. Styles hits a Springboard 450, but Wyatt kicks out. A minute later, a Phenominal Forearm gets reversed into a Sister Abgail, for Bray Wyatt to become the newest WWE Champion! What a match this was! What a great finish to the match. Loved it.

11:02PM: Bray Wyatt wins the Elimination Chamber and becomes the WWE Champion

Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg
Singles Match

Here we go with the Main Event of the evening. It has been 12 years since these two last faced off. Let’s see what this match has for us.

The bell tolls and right away Lesnar takes Goldberg to the corner. Lesnar stares at Goldberg but he pushes Lesnar right to the mat. Lesnar tries to get up and right away Goldberg hit the spear. Lesnar struggles back to his feet and Goldberg hits a second spear. Lesnar’s not looking good at this point as Goldberg stalks Lesnar.

Winner: Goldberg

That was a fast win… I mean like a really fast win. Wow…. Ok, Goldberg beat Lesnar he know holds 2 wins over the Beast in Incarnate.


Well that was an interesting finish. WWE literally just buried Brock Lesnar and in a way Undertakers streak. But,I’m not that one who makes the decisions so, guess we got to live with it.

Thanks for reading guys. Let me know what you thought of the show. I’ll upload highlights as they become available.

MOC Predictions: 2016 WWE Survivor Series – Fantasy Warfare

It’s that time again, where I spew my predictions all over your glorious faces and force myself on….. ok, i’m going to far now. Let’s just stop, breath and share with you fans my thoughts on who comes out of Survivor Series the winners and the potential changes to WWE.

Images below sourced from WWE.com

Kalisto vs. Brian Kendrick (c)
-WWE Cruiserweight Championship-
-If Kalisto wins, the Cruiserweight Division moves to Smackdown Live-
Singles Match

This is an interesting match and the reason why is when the Cruiserweights were first introduced many thought Kalisto would be apart of it, but it came as a odd shock that WWE moved him to Smackdown. But with recent rumors of WWE not being happy with how the division has been utilized on Raw, many believe that they would get a better reaction on Smackdown as that’s considered the more “Wrestle Heavy” show. So in my honest opinion I feel Kalisto will win this match and move the entire Division to Smackdown.

MOC Prediction: Kalisto (New Cruiserwight Champion – Division Moves to Smackdown)


The Miz (c) vs. Sami Zayn
-WWE Intercontinental Championship-
Singles Match

In correlation to the Crusierweight match above, it kind of paints a picture with the decision WWE proceeds with for the IC championship. If Kalisto does in fact win the Cruiserweight title and division, then Raw will win the Intercontinental Championship. I feel it’s a decent trade off to have the major titles on Raw, and have the more specific titles on Smackdown. But even if the Cruiserweight Division match is undecided when these two fight, I still think Raw gets the IC championship hands down.

MOC Prediction: Sami Zayn (New Intercontinental Champion) 


Team Smackdown Live vs. Team Raw (Tag Team Division)
Traditional Elimination Match

I also refer to this match as cluster f*** 101… There will be 20 men in this match to start with and frankly that’s a lot of guys in one ring at the same time! When it comes to who gets eliminated, I’m looking at the lesser teams to go first (ex: Breezango, Shining Stars, Ryder and Mojo.) I do feel that the last remaining teams will be the Smackdown and Raw Tag Champions. But I do see something happening in the end where The Club could attack Austin Creed on the outside, causing a distraction for New Day and costing them the match. So for me I see Team Smackdown Live comes out on top.

MOC Prediction: Team Smackdown Live (Tag Team Division)


Team Smackdown Live vs. Team Raw (Women’s Division)
Traditional Elimination Match

The Women of WWE square off in this traditional elimination match to determine which division out ranks the other, and I gotta say they’re impressive. But for me, the Raw team looks a lot more stacked than the Smackdown team…. that sounds wrong… I mean stacked in the way of talents… not assets… get your minds out of the gutter.

Raw and Smackdown have a pretty even team but I believe Nia Jax will be the wild card in this match. Her stature over all the women is impressive, and will take a ton of keep her down. I do feel that team Raw will have more talents remaining at the end other than Smackdown Live and I feel that Nia may even eliminate a few of them to prove that there’s more than one woman in the division that Charlotte should look out for.

MOC Prediction: Team Raw (Women’s Division)


Team Raw vs. Team Smackdown Live
Traditional Elimination Survivor Series Match

 The main guys, the main honchos, the top of the chain, the golden guns of the WWE, the… guys….. who….. I got nothing. Raw’s best vs Smackdown Live’s best and frankly they’re both impressive. Shane was a bit of an odd call to the Smackdown Team to be honest, but his determination to never quit and drive to keep fighting back could make him an underdog who eliminated one, maybe two guys from the Raw team. But the main factor here is Braun Strowman, who I believe will be a force that will make a huge impact. Smackdown Live will have to work together to get that huge beast off his feet. As for who’s winning, it’s hard to tell, but Takers threat on Smackdown Live kind of indicated a potential for a feud IF Smackdown live should lose, and that’s what I feel will happen. Smackdown Live loses, Taker takes it out on AJ Styles [Team Captain] and challenges him for the WWE title; from there wins it and heads to Royal Rumble to defend it against Cena. Ok, i’m really pushing forward in the story-line here. But nonetheless, sometimes you need to look at it that way to pinpoint a reason that would justify a loss, and for me that’s justification enough.

MOC Prediction: Team Raw


Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg
Singles Match

Now this is just fantasy warfare come to life. Last we saw these men in the ring [Raw], tensions were flying back and forth and you could feel that each just wanted to get their hands on the other. It’s been 12 years [March 14, 2004] since these men last faced off against each other with Goldberg having the only win over Lesnar. So you can understand why Lesnar wants redemption. It’s interesting to see how WWE proceeds with this because if Lesnar wins; we would need a rubber match no? If Goldberg wins, that’s that and Goldberg can go home happy having two wins over the beast incarnate Brock Lesnar. But then you kill that “monster” image from Lesnar. In my honest opinion, if anyone is to kill off the beast it has to be a new up-and-comer, so this way WWE can build that new star moving forward. No reason to kill off Lesnar to a talent who’s only doing a one-off match.  So for me, it would make the most sense for Lesnar to win, and this working towards a rubber match down the line. You gotta also remember, Goldberg’s got ring-rust so him beating Lesnar this Sunday just makes it that much worst.

Now please don’t get upset because I’m saying Goldberg can’t beat Lesnar. He can, but at this stage, I feel a talent who’s been in the ring a few times over the past few years would be better suited to win over a talent who has not been in the ring for at least a decade. Not to mention I wouldn’t mind seeing a rubber match.

MOC Prediction: Brock Lesnar

Those are my predictions, what are yours? Feel free to share them down below.
