12 April 2017 | Oney Lorcan vs Drew McIntyre

Oney Lorcan vs Drew McIntyre

It was the welcome back match for Drew McIntyre in WWE. It didn’t even last five minutes. But it felt much longer. Because Oney Lorcan was the other competitor. And Oney Lorcan is always awesome. Of course, I needed to write about this match. Enjoy!

Oney Lorcan vs El Vagabundo (alias The Drifter alias Elias Samson)

I like Oney. I really do. And I will make you like him if you don’t do already. Saying that, the audience’s reaction to his match against “El Vagabundo” was kind of strange. But for me it was the funniest match of the year so far. And so I needed to write about it. Enjoy!

NXT TakeOver: Orlando 2017/04/01: Ohno for No Way -OR- NXT is still glorious – thanks to Asuka and the tag teams

NXT TakeOver ORLANDO_behind_Ambregal_collage

Two great matches, one fun match and a main event I couldn’t care less about. Most certainly, NXT isn’t on the same level again that it had been before. William Regal introduced us to all new title belts and there are even more indie wrestlers (back) in NXT. I’m not really looking forward to that aspect. But I’m looking back to NXT TakeOver: Orlando. Right here, right now. Enjoy!

15 March 2017 | Kassius Ohno vs Bobby Roode

Kassius Ohno vs Bobby Roode

The first match for Chris Hero a.k.a Kassius Ohno back in NXT. Against Bobby Roode. For the NXT Championship. Something clearly changed in NXT since Kassius Ohno left. And not everything was for the better. Also Kassius Ohno changed. That’s why he kept his shirt on during the match. So, yes, I’ve got a bit to say about that match and its surroundings. Enjoy!

22 February 2017 | Mark Andrews vs Pete Dunne

Also the second encounter between two competitors of the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament on NXT was an instant classic. Pete Dunne still reminds me a little too much about William Regal. But is that really bad? He definitely has got his own style, especially gimmick wise. And Mark Andrews was his worthy first victim. The video and a few thoughts about the match and further possibilities, you find under the cut. Enjoy!

15 February 2017 | Trent Seven vs Tyler Bate

trent-seven-vs-tyler-bate

Like I already assumed during the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in January, a few competitors would soon join NXT. Of course, Tyler Bate as the UK champion was the first one. And he defended his title first against his usual tag team partner, Trent Seven. A fun match and an instant classic. Here are my thoughts, and the video. Enjoy!
