    Wednesday Night Wars: July 15, 2015

    There’s a lot of wrestling on Wednesday nights.

    Every week, @JoeySplashwater will attempt to watch as much of the wrestling programs on Wednesday night as he can. There will be a short recap of each program followed by the pick for Match of the Night, Performer of the Night and who won the Wednesday Night Wars?

    NXT

    NXT

    This was one of the better episodes of NXT I’ve seen in a while. The opening tag match was enjoyable with the team of Jason Jordan and Chad Gable already looking like the best in that poor division. Blake and Murphy looked solid in their match too with Alexa Bliss helping them out tremendously.

    NXT was main evented by Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks for the NXT Women’s Championship this week and it was perfect timing with the NXT female talent debuting on Raw this week. The match was pretty good and felt like the first important match on the NXT program in a long time. I loved the emotion at the end and I enjoyed the overall program. Best NXT episode in recent memory.

    Grade: B+

    Who names these shows?

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeySplashwater, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Baron Corbin vs. Rhyno

    Joey:

    My interest level rating is based upon Rhyno hitting this jaybrone with a sick GORE GORE GORE!!! If it doesn’t happen, we’re in for a sad night.

    Side note: Rhyno needs to face John Cena for the United States Championship in Philly, Chicago or one of the other places that ECW fans reside in.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Rhyno GORES this motherfucker.

    Tim:

    I’m all in on Rhyno beating the hell out of The Lone Wolf. I want a gore through the NXT set. Unfortunately, I see them letting B-Cor get the win here to help establish him as a completely bland sack of domination.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Baron Corbin wins.

    Tom:

    The Motorcycle Wolf has got this. Hopefully Rhyno breaks the ring apron video screen thing or gores a shopping cart again (STILL THE GREATEST SPOT OF ALL TIME).

    rhyno-shopping-cart

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Baron Corbin wins.

    Bayley and Charlotte vs. Dana Brooke and Emma

    Joey:

    This match being made is disappointing. I was expecting Emma vs. Bayley. I love ironic ironic Emma being a parody of her former self blaming the NXT world for her downfall on RAW. I think there’s a great story with potential there. Sadly this tag match could be rotten. I don’t have an opinion on Dana Brooke but people whine about her a lot which means she’ll likely be successful. Charlotte has nothing to do in NXT anymore except main event house shows.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Emma and Dana Brooke win.

    Tim:

    Bailey, Charlotte, and Emma are more than capable of having an entertaining match and being in the ring with these women will only help Dana Brooke who I think has some potential. This wasn’t my ideal match for some of the ladies involved (Bayley and Emma have great characters that should be put in a place to grow here) but I’ll take it as I’m sure it won’t be a stinker. I feel like it’s a toss-up for who is going to win here so I’ll default to them giving the faces a win although more could probably be made out of giving Emma and Brooke the big “w.”

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Bayley and Charlotte win.

    Tom:

    I really like Bayley, but I’m not that fussed about anyone else in this match. They’re all pretty good – the jury’s still out on young Dana Brooke, but she seems to have potential – but there’s nothing too compelling about the story behind this. The Emma character is bewildering, though I’m not sure that’s enough for me to want to watch her wrestle.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Emma and Dana Brooke win.

    This Or That (2/17/2015)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Who will leave Wrestlemania 31 as champ?

    Anyone else – 52%, Roman Reigns – 48%

    Better tag team break-up tease?

    Miz and Sandow – 53%, Gold and Star Dust– 47%

    Better guest on the Steve Austin Podcast?

    Vince McMahon – 83%, Triple H – 17%

    Better video game series?

    Mortal Kombat – 57%, Street Fighter – 43%

    Will Bray Wyatt face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31: Yes or No?

    Is The Undertaker who Bray Wyatt is referencing in his promos?

    wyattundertaker

    Tim:

    I don’t see this as a good idea or something that really makes sense. I figure Vince is all excited about putting the two supernatural characters against each other. I think it will happen although it doesn’t seem like it will this late in the build-up to Wrestlemania. It doesn’t even look like they know for sure if The Undertaker will be back yet and that’s kind of absurd. The streak is over and Bray Wyatt isn’t that great. There’s nothing here for me so of course this will go down.

    Yes

    Joey:

    The rumors about expected Wrestlemania matches during “Wrestlemania season” are almost always true but I just can’t see how they can make this match happen. The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak ending is arguably the greatest long term storyline in WWE history.

    How can you just have ‘Taker return after finally losing only to not be involved in a story with the person who defeated him? It just would make zero sense for The Dead Man not to get his revenge and move on to someone else. Bray Wyatt has done a very good job over the last month but it would also feel like a step down for Undertaker in a match where it would be need to be its biggest for him to return after losing. I just can’t see it. Wyatt has to be referring to someone else as a fake out. Maybe someone else on the roster that will be getting a push out of this?

    No

    Tom:

    The idea of Bray Wyatt faking us all out and targeting someone other than ‘Taker is very appealing, but I can’t imagine who else it could be and not feel like a total wet fart. Also, WWE isn’t generally that creative or restrained – if it WAS a fake-out, I’m pretty sure we’d have heard Cole and the other commentary knobs referencing Undertaker by name after Wyatt’s promos. Anyway. I think the match will be kinda bad but YES, Undertaker WILL wrestle Wyatt at Wrestlemania. Hopefully he has all the surgeries he needs by next year so he can have his actual final ‘Mania match with Bryan and it can be something fantastic.

    Yes
