Today I watched Week 3 of WWE 2017 which included Raw 1234, SmackDown Live 909, 205 Live 8, Main Event 225 and NXT 373! Even though it was a far better week of shows than last week, everything was kind of sunk having to follow the excellent UK Championship Tournament (Listen to my review here! )
Nonetheless, I did enjoy many moments this week including a Raw Tag Team Championship match between Cesaro + Sheamus and The Club, Alexa Bliss vs Becky Lynch in a cage match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, the identity of La Luchadora (#3… or #2?) revealed, a killer appearance by Dolph Ziggler on King’s Court, an I Forfeit match between Ariya Daivari and Jack Gallagher, and what’s next for Tye Dillinger!
Watch for next week’s review and my thoughts on what might (or what I hope will) happen at NXT Takeover San Antonio and the Royal Rumble!
Today I watched Lost in London directed by Woody Harrelson who also wrote and directed. It’s the first ever film shot and broadcast live, filmed by a single camera in one continuous take, plus it’s pretty funny too!
Today I watched the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament aired on January 14th and 15th, 2017. In this fantastic special we see 16 men from around the United Kingdom duke it out to become the very first WWE UK Champion.
If you’re tickled by some of the stars featured in this show you can see them in Insane Championship Wrestling , Progress Wrestling , and a bunch of other independent promotions in the UK! Progress even has a great deal to get your first month subscription to Demand Progress for 99 cents, Coupon code is PWP99CENT.
Today I watched WWE 2017 week 2 which included Raw 1233, SmackDown 908, 205 Live 7, Main Event 224 and NXT 372. This weekend is the 2-day UK Tournament so look out for my review of that on Monday!
Highlights of this week include DIY vs The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns in a handicap match for the US Championship, a rematch between American Alpha and the Wyatt Family, a parlay between Jack Gallagher and Ariya Daivari, and an excellent Talking Smack segment with Mojo Rawley!
