Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins

Cody wins via pin.

Mat: Wrestlemania did anything essential: it put Chris and I in the similar room for the primary time in slightly greater than two years. Now, I sit down in my house workplace in Chicagoland making an attempt to not gush about how stunning Mr. Rollins’ front outfit was once. He in reality was once peacocking on Peacock. He units me adrift on reminiscence bliss.

To me, Cody works higher in WWE with the best way he is introduced. He is a vintage babyface, like a Hulk Hogan who can placed on 5 famous person suits… or a modern day Bret Hart. He is a personality you’ll surely get at the back of rooting for, and that is the reason a vintage wrestling really feel that we do not get a lot anymore. As for Rollins, he is doing a few of his easiest paintings presently. He laws. I like it.

The fit itself was once incredible. It was once an excellent show off for each males, with no person popping out of it having a look vulnerable. It was once a whole marvel to peer Cody get the win right here, as Seth profitable made extra sense–to get a rubber fit on the subsequent PPV. Regardless, I do not see the rest topping this fit this night. It is simply that just right.


Chris: Here is a scorching take: I love Cody Rhodes. I do know, it is tremendous delicate, yet I imply it. He manages to take the drained tremendous pro-The united states gimmick and make it now not really feel drained. When there may be “Freakin,” which is Seth’s nickname. No person drips tougher than Seth, and each and every time he is on digital camera, he is decked to the nines within the coolest garments. So, already, a heck of a matchup.

It is dawning on me most effective now how a lot better introduced Cody’s persona is in WWE than it was once in AEW. That isn’t a knock on AEW, it is simply that his persona makes extra sense in a WWE atmosphere and the over-the-top characters he is publish against–like Seth Rollins–really pass far in additional legitimizing the “American Nightmare.”

As for the fit itself, it is two of the most productive within the trade doing their factor. What is to not love? I am excited about the truth that Cody remains to be doing his cutter, which may be very a lot a moderately changed RKO. Past that, the 2 threw all in their signature strikes at each and every different and it was once flat-out large. I want the storyline at the back of this fit was once as sturdy because the bout itself, as a result of that is a knock opposed to it. Even with that, although, it is laborious to imagine that is the fit they kicked the sing their own praises with as anything of this high quality may just smoothly be a prime match (and it is not like there are higher feuds all over the remainder of the cardboard).

I am in truth stunned Cody were given the win with a pull of the tights as I anticipated a dishonest victory for Seth, putting in a rubber fit. That stated, I am advantageous with it as a result of I am very curious the place each and every guy is going subsequent. Just right success, the remainder of the display. The bar’s been set lovely excessive.

Bobby Lashley vs, Omos

Omos wins via pin.

Mat: Let’s be fair, those guys don’t seem to be sowing the seeds of affection in combination. The rest is imaginable, although. They may go away this fit easiest buddies. Sorry, I am simply killing time whilst this fit is on as a result of it is surely laborious to apply Cody vs. Seth. Deficient Bobby Lashley, he is operating so laborious to make this fit watchable. He is sporting this the most productive he can, and it is nonetheless herky-jerky.

Not anything Omos does appears to be like adore it has have an effect on in any respect. MVP helped him get the win, which does not anything for the nature. Bobby Lashley was once on a perfect roll, yet this feud with Omos is derailing all of the just right will he is won over the last yr.


Chris: Is that this a prank? Following up Seth and Cody with the beefy boy bash is…a decision that was once for sure made. However, like, why? Additionally, are we able to communicate for a 2nd about Lashley’s new front the place he stands at the podium whilst what sounds just like the Olympic drums are taking part in? It is horrible. Lashley had a PERFECT front. Why would you tinker with perfection?

The problem with Omos being dominant within the early a part of this fit is Omos nonetheless feels extremely inexperienced within the role–and it particularly presentations anytime Omos is not merely handing out a beating. In terms of operating a from side to side fit, it is not large. Sure, Lashley is doing all he can to make the fit glance just right, yet it is too large a hill to climb for even the Almighty.

And let’s be fair right here, if we are meant to in finding Omos to be a plausible unstoppable massive, having him win by means of dishonest via his supervisor MVP cuts all of that off on the knees. So, like, what’s the Omos persona then?

Edge vs. AJ Types

Edge wins via submission.

Mat: This fit surely boils all the way down to “who’s going to activate AJ Smiles and sign up for Edge’s faction?” That is what we are looking ahead to. One thing will occur, and optimistically, I will be head over heels. So the large tale here’s that AJ Smiles’ arm is harm and that comes into play a lot–especially when Smile is making an attempt to position Edge into a number of submissions.

So Damian Priest comes out after which Finn Balor comes out to forestall him. Then again, an individual in a hoodie will get concerned, after which AJ Types finally ends up dropping. However who was once that particular person within the hoodie? It became out to be Rhea Ripley–something I known as at the Strive against Friends podcast as a result of I am an excessively cool one that’s large at randomly guessing.

As for the fit, it was once advantageous. It was once gradual and brooding, yet now not in some way the place it was once very thrilling or labored for me at the small display.


Chris: I love Edge’s new presentation, with all the black lighting and the creepy demon wings at the video display. Even the brand new song is rising on me. I do not just like the solid title Judgment Day yet I do not need to accept as true with the whole lot. Additionally I am making a final minute prediction right here, you able? I feel Finn Balor will flip heel, becoming a member of Judgment Day. He wishes/merits a focus like Damian Priest is getting and with Priest barred from ringside, this may well be absolute best.

This is an engaging fit as it felt as old-fashioned as they arrive, with each and every guy operating on dressed in down positive frame portions, buying and selling submission strikes, and so on. Early on, no less than, there were not essentially massive spots that drove the group wild, yet those two introduced an depth to a straight-forward wrestling fit that whilst it is lovely entertaining, although now not on the similar degree of Seth vs. Cody.

So perhaps my principle did not pan out, which might be unhealthy information in the end as a result of my concept about Balor was once surely large. That stated, I like this for Rhea Ripley. It offers a very good new edge (pun tremendous meant) to her heel persona and, in line with how a lot screentime Judgement Day is getting, I will be able to most effective think she’ll be chasing the ladies’s identify quickly.

Charlotte Aptitude (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

I Hand over Fit for the Smackdown Girls’s Championship

Charlotte quits, Ronda wins.

Mat: You already know what is kinda bizarre about this fit? Charlotte saved asking early on if Ronda was once going to surrender, and I am like, “Charlotte, you simply kicked her as soon as. She’s now not going to surrender.” So I have been playing this fit for what it’s, and when Charlotte put the mic as much as Ronda and Ronda stated, “By no means b****,” I misplaced my thoughts. Hell sure. It was once then adopted via Charlotte pronouncing, “Glad Mom’s Day.” A few very memorable moments there. And as a plus, Charlotte is not champion anymore. It was once a forged fit, and an “I Hand over” fit that did not get too over-the-top.


Chris: I need to be extra fascinated with this, yet it is been a long time since Charlotte Aptitude were given me excited for a fit. She’s a 13-time ladies’s champion, and all over on the subject of all of the ones reigns, hasn’t surely advanced in any respect as a personality. Seth Rollins has had like 13 wonderful characters in that point.

This was once an attractive a laugh brawl, truthfully. Although oddly paced. As discussed via Mat, Charlotte was once seeking to get Ronda to surrender very early on after one or two easy strikes. It made no sense. Then again, Charlotte wrenching Ronda’s again over a handrail within the target audience? That was once flat out perfection. Similar is going with Ronda seeking to rip off Charlotte’s arm whilst Aptitude was once placing from the highest rope.

It might be large for the group not to continuously chant “We wish tables” in suits like this. Simply benefit from the madness unfolding in entrance of you. Additionally, it is more or less wonderful that what it took for Ronda to surely lose it was once for Charlotte to mock the sanctity of Mom’s Day. In the long run, the correct particular person were given the win right here and the fit was once in truth lovely great–easily 2nd easiest of the evening to date.

Glad Corbin vs. Madcap Moss

Moss wins via pin.

Mat: I forgot to paintings in a Tears for Fears or PM Crack of dawn lyric into my ultimate fit evaluation, so I wish to put two into this one. I have were given to shout, and let all of it out. Now . Anyway, as for this fit, And I in finding it more or less humorous, and I in finding it more or less unhappy. I am satisfied as a result of Glad Corbin in spite of everything discovered a neighborhood Dan Flashes to shop for new shirts, yet unhappy for Moss’s wrestling tools.

Am I intended to be rooting for Moss? I perceive the tale, I perceive the heel/face dynamic, yet I do not perceive why I must surely maintain Moss, and that is the reason wild as a result of I surely loved heel Moss. This fit was once center of the street and it had a peculiar roll-up completed which failed to are compatible the remainder of the fit.


Chris: Glad Corbin nonetheless has the most productive factor tune (outdoor of Retribution) in wrestling historical past. However, truthfully, Madcap Moss has an attractive fantastic tune of his personal. The loser of this fit must need to surrender their front song. This fit is an oddity as a result of, in principle, Madcap Moss is meant to be the cute babyface, yet that is simply now not the case. Those are each guys you’ll steer clear of in any respect prices if you happen to noticed them at a birthday party.

The fit was once not anything to write down house about and almost certainly went on a couple of mins too lengthy. However giving Moss the win feels just like the incorrect name because it more or less flies within the face of Corbin’s construct over the past yr. How a lot better would it not had been for Corbin to get a tainted victory, most effective making Moss need it extra?

Drew McIntyre & RK-Bro vs. The Bloodline

The Bloodline wins.

Mat: Whilst everyone needs to rule the sector, the Bloodline is doing so in WWE. After which there may be Drew McIntyre, tremendous great man. I don’t in my view maintain a feud between he and Reigns, regardless of how laborious that is driven. And I additionally do not care a lot about RK-Bro vs. The Usos. There is a lot happening right here that simply does not pastime me.

One day, after a drought of motion and a slow-plotting, now and then uninteresting, fit, we were given into some high-octane motion. I hate the time period “high-octane,” yet I have already written it. It divulged right into a biggest hits fit for each and every wrestler, appearing all their signature moves–but no finishers. And in a surroundings of six wrestlers, that is a large number of a laugh.

Pat McAfee and Michael Cole are performing some dynamite commentating throughout this fit, making it appear to be the whole lot is at the line right here when, in truth, not anything is at the line. They may well be my favourite observation duo presently.

This fit in truth went the other means I assumed it will. The Bloodline as soon as once more proved they’re the most productive, yet that does not lead anyplace else. I suppose McIntyre may just call for a one-on-one, yet whilst the fit was once large, it feels slightly bit hole in spite of everything.


Chris: I’m wondering which belt Roman considers his number one belt? Additionally, the Bloodline’s front is no less than two Undertaker entrances lengthy. WWE is making an attempt actual laborious to make me need to see Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns to resolve the Tremendous Giant Canine Champion of WWE, and I must be fair with you, it’s not operating. Similar to Charlotte, Drew’s persona has stalled out. Including a sword named after his mom to the combination surely modified not anything, with the exception of he is continuously seeking to homicide folks with it. That will be a a laugh persona twist yet they by no means in truth recognize it.

So Roman getting the highly-anticipated tag to step into the hoop opposed to Drew fell flat for me. It additionally does not assist that this fit began very gradual and methodically. There is been a large number of high-octane motion this night, and with six males within the fit you might generally be expecting that right here. So slowing issues down such a lot felt off.

Fortunately, it did not keep at that tempo. This fit was once at its easiest, although, when Roman was once destroying and showboating. As a result of, in the long run, that might be his downfall as Tremendous Giant Canine Champion of WWE. In the end somebody gets the easier of him when he least expects it.

Additionally price noting is that there’s some critically large chemistry between the Usos and RK-Bro. And Orton’s RKO display by no means will get previous, even if it is been happening for years. Dare I say it, am I beginning to like RK-Bro? That will be loopy.

Severely, although, as soon as this fit were given cooking the group woke proper up and carried all six males house. The general stretch of the fit was once as filled with motion because it may well be, culminating with Roman spearing Riddle in part for the victory. I wasn’t a large fan of this fit originally, nevertheless it surely did win me over.


That is all. See you at Hell in a Mobile.
