I have to admit, as I sat down to watch TLC, this is the first time in a long time, that I was completely, utterly and genuinely excited for a WWE PPV event. Even with the unavoidable changes to the card. A viral infection seeing Bray Wyatt replaced by AJ Styles in the match against The Demon, and Roman Reigns replaced by Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle, These changes, for me, only made TLC not only more intriguing but also more excited and had me eager to watch.

As some of my regular readers know, I have been eagerly and somewhat impatiently waiting for the Raw debut of Asuka for some time. I believe that her arrival will give the Women’s division a huge shake-up, bringing her hard hitting dominance from NXT to the Raw. The Empress of Tomorrow’s debut did not disappoint. It may have been a while coming, but was definitely worth the wait. I truly feel Asuka V Emma was a great match and I was very impressed by Emma. I was glad to see that it wasn’t the “Squash match” (not my words,) that some people were expecting.

Funny moment or should I say, moments of the night came courtesy of Jason Jordan, who showered Elias in Celery every time he came out to sing, this culminating in a match between Elias and Jordan which would end seeing Jason Jordan the victor.

Before I mention the Cruiser weight tag team match, I want to say, heel or face, I LOVE Brian Kendrick! I think the guy is awesome! Now, talking of the match itself, Brian Kendrick & Jack Gallagher V Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann (who’s entrance is fab!!) I feel was another great match. I love to watch the Cruiser weights in action, always enjoyable, always entertaining. The ending saw the team of Alexander & Swann with the victory.

I thought the match for the Raw Women’s championship was brilliant…. ( I can almost hear the eye rolls of mainly dudes who think Women shouldn’t have an opinion on wrestling or that Women should get this much attention in wrestling, but tough!) It was a great back and forth between James and Bliss. Ultimately, Bliss retained her championship. Now, this had me thinking and I have a theory…. As we know, Bliss said she had ran through everyone in the division, this is what caused Mickie James to come at Bliss, after Alexa called Mickie old and basically stated Mickie’s time had gone. Now, she has beat Mickie, she has gone through the division, bar one, Asuka! My theory? Simply this, WWE Creative have the plan to have Asuka dethrone Alexa Bliss as champion. This would be something I would see as a positive and I would also like to see this match.

As a side note, as I mentioned the Bliss/James match, I just want to say that, as a Woman of a similar age as Mickie James, I have unlimited respect for her. She can still go out there and do it better than most. That’s talent, that’s balls and that is worthy of respect! I have always been a fan of Mickie James and always will be.

Enzo Amore, the only guy I know that can lose his voice and still manage to talk smack managed to regain the Cruiserweight Championship from Kaliso. Cocky Enzo resorting to a thumb to the eye in an enjoyable match. (I am aware this is thin but I had a little interference during this part of the broadcast).

Now, this is something I could talk about like an excited child…. The match between A.J. Styles and The Demon! A match for me that wasn’t just match of the night, but my personal match of the year! I have to admit, that The Demon’s entrance is my favourite entrance in WWE. Its captivating and absolutely mesmerising. This truly was a dream match scenario and highly anticipated. The “This is awesome” chants before the match even began is a complete testament to this fact. Throughout the match, the crowd was deafening, with split chants for both participants. I can’t remember the last time, the audience in attendance were that invested, that into a match. The match itself was indeed awesome, epic even. If this is what Balor and Styles do with only a couple of days to prepare, imagine the possibilities with more time to prepare. I doubt this is the last time we will see these two compete against each other and after that, I can not wait for the next time. I also loved the show of respect between both competitors at the end of the match. Ending in the “Too sweet” sign.

When I heard that Kurt Angle was replacing Roman Reigns in the TLC Handicap Match, the teenage wrestling fan inside me was overly excited! 11 Years after he last competed in a WWE ring, he was back and was joining 2/3 of The Shield. I knew this was going to be good, this match also failed to disappoint. We got the obvious Tables, Ladders and Chairs and at one point, a Garbage Truck! The action was everywhere!
The team of The Miz, Sheamus & Cesaro, Strowman and Kane dominated and after Angle was taken out of action by Strowman putting him through a table, it seemed they had the match won. This was until Kane gave Strowman a chokeslam through the stage then set the display chairs crashing down from the ceiling to the floor on top of Strowman. This would, however, not keep Strowman down and the rest of his team began a beat down on the Monster among Men. This and the return of Kurt Angle to the match, saw the team of himself and the shield victorious, after a triple power bomb on Miz and Angle got the pin. This match was Excellent, in my opinion exceeded expectations by miles.

Kurt Angle, in a WWE ring competing again…. Absolute respect!

Lately, I have been quite impressed with WWE’s creative direction, yes, they do have a bit to go but they have done good. TLC was Excellent, I am so glad I stayed up to watch it…. (In the UK, WWE PPVs don’t start til 1am generally) it was worth it!


Haters, gonna hate….

Just got a message from a friend on Facebook, informing me someone has been slagging myself and my blog off! Now, because I refuse to give this idiot the attention of mentioning their name, I only have this to say…. I do NOT earn anything from my blog! It is purely a hobby, not something I gain profit from. A few people know that I was approached to earn from doing it but I turned the offer down.
I have to say that, hobby or now, I feel it show real lack of character that 1 someone has slagged off me for my blog but not to me personally and 2 this is a lesson that, even when someone does show a hate towards something you do, for whatever reason, you should NEVER allow anyone’s opinion to matter, or stop you from doing something you enjoy, love or makes you happy.
I won’t stop my blog! I have had more positive feedback about my writing than I have EVER had negative and its facebook page has over 100 people that have liked it! Not too bad for some lass no one knows and  who apparetly doesn’t know shit about Wrestling, is it?
The point of this post is yes, address the comments but as also to say, never let anyone deter you from something you love or enjoy doing. I know I won’t.
Love and a massive thank you to everyone who has read my blog, liked the Facebook page. All those who have shared the posts on there too, you guys are the best!

No Mercy afterthoughts…

This is the first WWE PPV that I have been eager to watch in a long time. This was mainly for the Universal Championship match and the Fatal 5 way for the Raw Women’s Championship.

All in all I thought No Mercy was a great and solid PPV, one of the best they’ve had in a while! I do have to admit to feeling the main event for the Universal Championship was a little anti climatic and I expected a little more but then, that could because my expectations for this match were quite high.

I have already seen disgruntled fans complaining that, as Lesnar retained, the Universal Championship won’t be defended til next year. I have to admit, I have seen a few Wrestling pages posts stating that Lesnar would be MIA til Royal Rumble 2018. This is not anything I could confirm or deny. I do hope it isn’t the case though. I also would like to think the feud between Lesnar and Strowman hasn’t reached it’s end, although, I would like to see a re-ignition of Lesnar’s feud with Samoa Joe.

Shocker of the night, has to be Enzo Amore capturing the Cruiserweight Championship, beating the self proclaimed “King of the Cruiserweights”, Neville. A victory that wasn’t just controversial, but quite humorous. I refer to it as a shock, I think I mean more of a surprise that Amore is getting this run, as we know, his is a Man who is controversial in and out of the ropes and hasn’t set himself in the good graces of  WWE officials. That being said, I am curious to see where Amore’s run as Cruiserweight Champion takes him and in turn, us.

Match of the night, for me, absolutely has got to be the match for the Raw tag team Championships. From start to finish, this match was absolutely phenomenal! Not great for Cesaro, who is missing a tooth, or possibly two, (I will never not see Seth Rollins and not mentally be calling him “The Tooth Fairy” from now on). All four Men were absolutely on fire and the match was brilliant and a thrill to watch. I find Sheamus and Cesaro a great blend as a tag team and Rollins and Ambrose as a tag team have brought more than I imagined they would. Back in the days of The Shield, it was Reigns and Rollins as the tag team so we didn’t get to see how Ambrose and Rollins would be as a tag team. I find both their styles to be complimentary to the other’s and I am looking forward to see what is next for them and the tag team division.

Now, lets hear it for the girls!! The Fatal Five way for the Raw Women’s Championship. This is a match for me that didn’t disappoint. Ending in “the Goddess of WWE” retaining her championship. Although I would have preferred to see Nia Jax win ( I am a huge fan!!) I enjoyed this match none the less.

From Jason Jordan’s great showing against The Miz who has been on fire for the longest time now,  to the fantastic back and forth between Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor, to the battle for what appeared to be for mutual respect between Reigns and Cena. I do believe this was definitely one of the better PPV to come out of WWE in a while, especially from Raw. I also look forward to seeing what is to come.

Til next time folks!!

Raw after Wrestlemania

As I sit down to watch Monday night raw, I realise for the first time in years, I was actually eager and excited to watch it. After the events of Wrestlemania I had a good feeling about raw… I was right, I have to say I thought it was good.

First of all, I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the energy of the audience in attendance the night after Wrestlemania. Vocal and hyped up, makes watching at home a little more enjoyable too. Speaking of the WWE audience, they didn’t hold back in letting Roman Reigns know exactly how they felt about him. Negative and expletive chants were a plenty and in full volume. Met, by Reigns with a one liner comment, of which didn’t calm the WWE fans vocal storm.

Then we have an appearance from Vince McMahon who, lets be fair came out and announced (which we already knew) that Kurt Angle is back and here as General Manager. I have to admit to being intrigued to see where WWE Creative are going to go with this one. Hopefully, in a good direction, considering that quite swiftly after the separation of the brands, the whole “Authority” storyline (that just doesn’t work anymore) came back. Which in my opinion is tiresome. I am looking forward to a hopeful change for the better.

We also saw action as the Hardy Boyz defend their newly acquired Raw Tag Team Championship against former champions, Gallows and Anderson. After a great match, we saw the newly returning Hardy Boyz victorious again.

Also, seeing the debut of NXT Superstars, The Revival, who made their presence felt in response to an open challenge from the new day. An absolutely impressive showing from The Revival saw them get the win over the 2 time tag team champions. WHAT A DEBUT!!

Now, I have to mention the 6 women tag match. After a very confusing and stretched out time away, Emma made her return, tagging with Nia Jax and Charlotte, taking on Bayley, Sasha Banks and Dana Brooke. So, here is when I know I am not going to be very popular but I will always be honest here… Dana Brooke, (in my opinion and I know there are a lot who agree) was brought up to the main roster too soon! We have seen the countless blunders that have happened by her and I think she could have benefited from longer in NXT. That being said, I have noticed some improvement since creative broke her away from Charlotte. I guess we’re going to have to wait and see. This match to me, was good and enjoyed it.

I was, of course expecting Lesnar and Paul Heyman to make an appearance, what I wasn’t expecting was for them to be interrupted by Braun Strowman. But, I have to admit, Lesnar and Strowman…. This is a match I want to see. Here’s hoping in the near future we get to see it.

I was ecstatic to see the return of Finn Balor to team with Seth Rollins in the main event against Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe. This a change to the advertised match after Jericho was attacked in the back by Owens and Joe. Brilliant match to end raw.

I found raw to be the most enjoyable one that I have seen in the longest time. I just hope this momentum carries on beyond this episode of raw and with the Superstar shake up that Mr. McMahon promised us next week, I look forward to see who gets moved and what comes next.


There is no way I can begin this post without mentioning The Undertaker. The first time I saw him I was 9/10 years old and even though, at that age, the sight of a Man rolling his eyes scared me to my core, but there was something intriguing and compelling about the Phenom, even at that age. For me, The Undertaker WAS my childhood of watching wrestling. Continuing on into my teens and adult life.

For every awesome match and memories, thank you, Undertaker. You may have passed the torch to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania and I mean no disrespect to Reigns, but, to all us fans, it will ALWAYS be your yard!


Now back to Wrestlemania, this will shock some but I thought Wrestlemania was a blast! One of the highlights of the night was the returning Hardy’s, even though there were whispers and back and forth of their return, it didn’t stop the entire arena erupting as soon as their music hit! I am not ashamed to admit that I let an excited scream out! This excitement prolonged by them capturing the raw tag team championship. I never thought I would ever be able to say that but I am elated to be able to!

Match of the night for me had to go to Shane McMahon V AJ Styles. Shane showing that he may know how to throw hands but isn’t too shabby in the technical department of a wrestling match. I enjoyed the match from the bell to the pin, seeing AJ Styles get the victory.

I also have to quickly mention the match for the Smackdown Women’s championship and you know what I am going to say, I am incredibly happy that Naomi came back and creative decided to give her back the championship. I am very interested to see where it goes. I am a big advocate of Naomi and feel she deserves a real run with the championship.

The Universal Championship match was pretty much what I expected and in the end saw Lesnar get the victory.


My second favourite match of the night has got to be Bray Wyatt V Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. I knew it was going to be a weird one, but the projections on the canvas were bizarre but it was a great match up.

I have to admit that Wrestlemania took my expectations and gave me the middle finger. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, the fact I was wrong about this makes me incredibly happy. This Wrestlemania had me excited to watch Raw for the first time in a long time.


Elimination Chamber and the fallout on Smack Down Live.

I can not begin this post without starting by mentioning the Elimination Chamber match itself. We have a new WWE Champion in Bray Wyatt!! This in my honest opinion is something that is much deserved and has been long overdue. The eater of worlds is without doubt one of the, if not the most intriguing, and intensely captivating superstars that has ever appeared in a WWE ring. I am very much excited to see where this Championship reign takes both Wyatt and the storylines to come.

With this said, the stage is set for Wrestlemania… Or so we thought. The closing moments of Smackdown after successfully retaining his championship in a tripe threat against AJ Styles and John Cena, Wyatt was joined in the ring by the winner of the Royal Rumble match, Randy Orton. Who pledges his allegiance to Bray and refuses to face him at Wrestlemania. This, for me, was a little bit of an anti climax but not too much, as once again, I have a personal theory in my head….

Luke Harper firmly in Bray Wyatt’s face, including attacking his as he made his way to the ring for his triple threat match, could it be that we could see Harper being considered as a part of Wrestlemania? Or my personal favourite theory, Orton decides nearer the time to take his rightful place as the winner of the Royal Rumble match of his shot at the Championship, in a triple threat at Wrestlemania agains both, Wyatt and Harper. This to me, would be something fresh, something we haven’t seen before and could be one of the best matches on the Wrestlemania Card, whether it happens or not, remains to be seen, again, this is just a personal theory.

Now, on to the Women’s division and congratulations to the NEW Women’s Champion, Naomi! You guys know and I have said it in a few of my posts on here, that I have believe Naomi has been held back for the longest time and deserved this spot. She is the most athletic and more likeable Women in the company and I was absolutely over the moon when she won the Championship. She does DESERVE it!

I also have to say that I love how Smack down use their Women’s division. They had 3 women’s matches at the Elimination PPV. This has to be said and I commend the fact that this happened.

Maybe this Women’s revolution is salvageable yet…

Royal Rumble, an objective perspective…

After I watched Royal Rumble, I do have to admit to not thinking it was as good as it may have been made to be. HHH, himself was quoted as saying “No one will see it coming”, this was in reference to who would be the winner of the Royal Rumble match. Now, whereas I do feel it wasn’t as inconceivable as HHH’s statement made it out to be, considering the story line of late and Orton’s association with the Wyatt family, in hindsight, it might not have been as expected as some of the others to win.

I will also admit that as it happened I was amongst those people who wasn’t ecstatic about the outcome of the Royal Rumble match. I did feel, with the amount of talent that has been drafted up from NXT and that has been brought into the company, now would have been a good chance to do something new and unexpected, this is until I had a chance to think it over….

I think this Royal Rumble may have been less of a “There is a change going to happen” and more of a think of the bigger picture event. We all know that Elimination Chamber comes before Wrestlemania, now we know that Orton is the Royal Rumble winner, and goes on to have a Championship match at Wrestlemania, now, what would we not see coming? Do remember that when I say this, it is mainly conjecture, a possible theory… Bray Wyatt enters and wins the elimination chamber match. In my opinion, Bray Wyatt is one of THE most intriguing superstars to be in a WWE ring for the longest time and in my personal opinion has been long overdue a title run… Maybe his time is coming close to being upon us.

We also have the very visible set up for Roman Reigns V The Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Although, a part of me wanted an Undertaker V AJ Styles match. It’s a match up that I would have loved to have seen plus, I kind of like the idea of a “Phenom V the phenomenal one” match, but that’s just a “Becca” thing.

Either way, I do think this Royal Rumble, which some are not happy with, is a set up for something more. I’m quite looking forward to seeing how it all develops.

Highlights from the Royal Rumble for me, personally were The Styles/Cena match for the WWE Championship, I thought it was a brilliant match and both Men were awesome.

Another was the WWE Cruiserweight match between Rich Swann and Neville. Swann is an absolute thrill to watch in the ring and I am absolutely LOVING heel Neville.

All in all, its was a good PPV, good matches and has done its job when it comes to setting up the road to Wrestlemania.

I have a feeling Raw may just be a good one….

Wooooooo…. Happy new year!!

Hope you all have a fantastic 2017.

Here’s to 2017 


Post Brand Split thoughts…

There has been quite a bit of time since the brand split of Raw and Smackdown took place. As a fan, I was one of what  appeared to be a minority that wasn’t exactly enthused by the decision of a brand split. Considering the dismal issue of Raw’s rating pre brand split, I and others I spoke to, felt it was bad timing for this to take place. This opinion wasn’t shared by everyone…. There were many excited by the prospect of the brand split. A concept I found ironic, as these same people complained about the brand split the FIRST time it happened and practically threw a party when it came to an end, but hey! Each to their own opinions, I say.

Post brand split, in my opinion, I have been more impressed by Smackdown, than Raw, of course this is my personal preference. I find that Smackdown Live is more enjoyable and have been more impressed with the Smackdown usage of it’s talent, for instance, at present, the Women’s division is seeing a whole host of the roster being actively used and has its upcoming 6 pack challenge for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. This is just one of the reasons I am enjoying Smackdown more than Raw. Now, this being said, I think (with the exception of Finn Balor winning the Universal Championship, which he sadly had to relinquish, I wish you a speedy recovery, Balor) Kevin Owens becoming Universal Champion is the best thing to happen on Raw since the brand split. A lot of people thought Reigns was going to win and was complaining about the concept. I think Owens becoming the Universal Champion is a brilliant move, because like him or not, the man is exceptional and has been since he debuted on the main roster!

All that being said, I think now that the brand split has happened, it is nonsensical to have Raw as a 3 hour show! The roster was divided between the two brands. leaving it harder to have a full and credulous show that won’t see us having to witness the same matches week after week. I think Raw should go back to a 2 hour show, mainly because I feel it could lead to stale matches and dead end creative options, I am aware that some will not agree and like I said each to their own. In a week that has seen Del Rio leave the WWE and talk of other Superstars on Raw vocalising their not so happy thoughts upon bookings etc, I think the concept of Raw going back to 2 hours is something that should be seriously considered, especially considering looking at the rating statistic of the past 6 months, the biggest ratings drop is ALWAYS within the final hour…
