I know, lately, I keep talking about this so-called new era, but it's the extent WWE gave us to judge it, right? And considering this, when the new era allows a lot of artists to wrestle for 30 minutes in the main event? Sign me up to hell.
That's the strength of WWE, in my estimation. Her talent – her sheer depth of talent 19459005 – is unparalleled. Everyone from AJ Styles to Alexander Wolfe to Tyler Breeze was able to rock a 30-minute match. So, let them know, you know?
In this show, we forced Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura to speak out for the United States Championship, and I do not know how many cheers and songs were added in post-production, but the crowd was loud and gave some energy to this fight ,
There's really not much to say, you know? It's an excellent match. Click on the video and see the highlights. I found the comment in this fight particularly good by questioning Rusev's gumption and adding some urgency when the fight broke out outside.
In the end we have a new champion! Rusev holds again the championship of the United States as we enter the Royal Rumble. I'm curious who his next challenger will be.
Do it for dad
Ah, Christmas. It's a time for us all to come together and unite over daddy issues.
Could you damn well believe where this joke went from Shane McMahon / The Miz? The Miz has been following Shane for weeks and is going so far as to ask Vince McMahon for his blessing to bring his son to justice. And all this … because Miz & # 39; father never said he was proud of him.
Holy damn cow.
Let me say this as a big compliment to the Miz: how many WWE superstars could you think you have? pulled what Miz pulled off this evening? It's a short list, right? Miz had to spin briefly about his father to create sympathy and compassion from the crowd. I sat here and rolled my eyes, but smiled as Miz ripped off all his accomplishments and talked about seeking his father's approval. And dad? Well, daddy was not there.
It's also the perfect story for a guy like Shane. He has a lot of history with his own father and was so moved by Miz's story that he reluctantly gave the guy a chance. It's a Christmas miracle, people!
Can we talk about this Vince and AJ segment? – Holy Cow, so I'm here for something like that. Vince met AJ behind the scenes to end the show, accusing Styles of being complacent and failing to cope with his innumerable nicknames. If this is your house, man, how do you not compete? How do you let Bryan walk around and do what he wants? Vince made it by beating styles and styles as he hit his boss and screamed in his face.
Vince can be an incredible tool for storytelling, and that's what they showed with this segment. Keep this plan and go back, WWE.
Mustafa Ali def. Andrade "Cien" Almas – The end of this game was crazy, man. Almas countered a powerbomb, Ali countered Alma's trademark on the corner, and then Ali slid back into the ring to deliver an acrobatic DDT to set up the 054. Give me more of these two forever, thanks.
Usos and The Club def. The Bar and Sanity – New Day got up to comment and bluntly I could not look for anything other than Big E's big, floppy santa belt and his baby oiling his pecs. Never change, Big E. Can we someday get these guys to comment on a PPV match in its entirety?
How can you arrange a tag team department that vies for attention? A tag team match, playa! The club entered the club dub by capturing Cesaro.
Daniel Bryans a bad, bad man – He described Santa Claus as terrible because he was a symbol of consumption, and accused us all for the fact that Santa will not exist in 20 years, because the polar ice caps melt. And then he struck the ever-loving tar from R-Truth, dressed as Santa Claus. So mean!
The champion was not finished either. Behind the scenes, Ali received the Crusierweights' love and Shelton Benjamin for his success … only for Bryan, who attacked Ali for pinning him last week.
Samoa Joe def. Jeff Hardy via DQ – I still do not feel this feud. I thought their match was good on this show, but pretty much the same for the class these days. The list is rocking, man. "Good" is now the average. Joe claimed on this show that he is Jeff's new addiction and justifies Jeff that he is right by disqualifying himself.
Jimmy Uso and Naomi meet under the Mistletoe – How crazy was that adorable?
I have a feeling that WWE was a bit removed from the NXT book with this show. They did not overexpose their captains and girls and instead decided to give the midcard and tag teams a chance to shine.
I love that! This will keep you fresh and avoid too many rematches. It was an unfortunate coincidence that we did not have any games for women tonight, but I'm not too worried that shows will look different in the future.
This was a very solid show. Catch it if you can.
Difficulty level: R for RUSEV DAY !!!!
Cena's back next week! Can we reach an Ali vs. Cena match very quickly, Cageside?
