Long-time reader Bob Rager of West Brownsville sent his feedback on the Honkytonk Man's show on Thursday, June 29.
However, in a weird bit of irony, Great Balls of Fire has the potential to be WWE's best pay-per-view offering all year. I don't know and honestly, it's hard to even care. In fact, this is one of the few times since Brock's return in 2012 that one could argue that his match didn't live up to the hype around it. Haven't WWE brass relied on part-timers to boost major event too often?
After the Cruiserweight pre-show, about a dozen ring crew members immediately removed the purple tape that surrounds the ring ropes. Just quite what these four innovators will come up with now they have a solid half-hour to work with is anyone's guess, but it won't be the kind of affair that'll have you reaching for the remote.
Yeah, we should probably just get to unpacking this show. Big Cass pretty much squashed his former teammate. The crowd cheered virtually every Enzo hope spot. The finish saw Jeff hit a Swanton Bomb on Sheamus, who wasn't the legal man, then Cesaro comes in to pin Jeff.
Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus def.
"I thought that Honkytonk Man was really amusing", he said.
Where can you follow the match online? This bout had the feel of a major indy match, something that's often lacking from a roster that would do far better if the symbolic restrictor plates were taken off. Making its pay-per-view debut, the tag team variation of the legendary Iron Man Match would see both teams compete for 30 minutes and, in that time limit, whichever team scores the most falls by pinfall, submission, disqualification, or count-out would walk out of Dallas as the RAW Tag Team Champions!
Braun Strowman was injured a month ago during a backstage brawl with Roman Reigns involving an ambulance.
Alas, this idea may not appeal to one Vincent Kennedy McMahon even if the WWE Universe demands it and hence, we move on to other possibilities. He beat Roman Reigns. Braun and Roman may be the feud of the summer, and I am ok with that. "I ended up watching the entire season straight through". As expected, Braun got the louder pop upon entering the ring. HUGE boos when Roman Reigns attempts vehicular homicide on Braun. He also challenged him to an ambulance match at the PPV.
Brock Lesnar is advertised to appear on tonight's episode which means he will be all business for his next title defense at SummerSlam. The easiest way is to look towards the future, and see who would be the next in line for a title shot. Everyone was on their feet during the Samoa Joe/Brock Lesnar match. Joe still looked strong in this match despite losing it. Samoa Joe managed to do a lot of damage on Lesnar and held him with the Coquina Clutch many times. If he didn't have people's respect before, he definitely has it now.
