There were some rumors floating around her post WWE.



Again, way too young to die.


RIP

That price point just isnt a model anymore

Ufc is on espn+ in the states
Dazn is picking up a ton of boxing, espn too
Wwe with the network
DAZN also has MLW which is slowly garnering more and more praise. Supposedly Teddy Hart has finally gotten his #### together and it's a really enjoyable product. I've yet to check it out but it's on my list.

You can also watch MLW on YouTube a few days after it's up on DAZN. There is a New Hart Foundation, with Teddy, Harry Smith and Brian Pillman's son.

She needs an exceptional wrestler to carry her to a decent match.

Just to be consistant, I'm unsure if I'm going to watch tomorrow's Money in the Bank PPV.


But I might as well throw out some predictions


Tony Nese (c) vs. Ariya Daivari


I can't see them taking the belt off of Nese, he's been on a star turn. Daivari is a great heel and ready to take the next step but not this day

Tony Nese


Daniel Bryan & Rowan vs. The Usos (Kickoff Show)

The fact that this is on the kickoff show, kind of illustrates how bad tag team wrestling is right now. The USO's are now the mean girls of the division with their superhot prank and back shaving skits.

I'll take Bryan and Rowan



United States Championship: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Rey Mysterio

Samoa Joe has been a solid champion, and it would be stupid to take the belt off of him. I stopped caring about Rey years ago. If they can have Joe murder Rey's son it would make it a 5 star match no matter what

Samoa Joe retains


Roman Reigns vs. Elias


I'm happy that Roman beat cancer and I'm glad he's back. But we're back to Super Reigns again, and the last good things about Eliass have been buried.

Roman Reigns


The Miz vs. Shane McMahon (Steel Cage Match)

I've liked Miz in the face role. Frankly I'm sick of the pudgy son of the owner regularly beating up wrestlers. I mean I get that fans love Shane because he's a spot monkey who does big spots, but losing to Shane just buries Miz, and I don't want to see a 40 some executive beating up a wrestler.

Shane McMahon ends the feud, buries Miz and moves on to feud with Reigns


Nikki Cross vs. Bayley vs. Natalya vs. Naomi vs. Carmella vs. Dana Brooke vs. Mandy Rose vs. Ember Moon (Women's Money in the Bank)

Winning the MITB is a major elevation for a wrestler on the verge. Just looking at this lineup, its amazing how weak the Woman's division has gone with Bliss, Banks and Rousey injured or not available.



Nikki Cross is a late addition, and I loved her in NXT but she's been pretty meh on the main roster. It wold have been nice to see any of the former members of the Riot Squad in this, but they've been nowhere to be seen since the superstar shuffle. I expect they'll let Mandy heel win this somehow and push her to the moon.

Mandy Rose


Finn Balor vs. Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Ricochet vs. Randy Orton vs. Andrade vs. Ali (Men's Money in the Bank)

This should be a good match. Right now to me the ones that could most benefit from winning are Andrade and Zayn. Chances are the WWE will resist the temptation to do the right thing and do the old thing and give the briefcase to Orton or Drew.


I'm going to predict that they get this right, Zayn will win.


Raw Women's Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans

With two woman's title matches featuring Becky, I can guarantee you that she'll lose one. Evan's has kind of found her stride since they went from her catwalking to doing what she does best which is to be a southern heel. But I think the WWE is going to want to established woman's champions and make Evan's wait

SmackDown Women's Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair


I am so sick of this freaking matchup. The WWE has failed to elevate woman to the upper card over the last wild and because of that and again the departure of Rousey, the injury to Bliss, and the vacation of Banks has left a huge hole in the division, we're stuck with the same old thing. The WWE seems to like to put the belt on Charlotte, so here we go again. Boring

Charlotte


WWE Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Kevin Owens

Without the rest of New Day at his side, I expect that the WWE won't have faith in continuing the Kofi push. I'm a big fan of Kevin Owens, but not his confusing booking since he got back. But I expect the belt will go around his waist

Kevin Owens


Universal Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. AJ Styles

Two great workers and should be the match of the night, I respect AJ a lot, but I really don't think at his age and with his new contract that the WWE is going to put the belt on him.

Seth Rollins


After the match we see the return of an Angry Brock Lesnar to set up a a feud with Seth.

Well this PPV is a bust of bad booking and meh matches


They had a chance to elevate someone in the Woman's division that's really weak right now. Instead after a pretty meh MITB match they put the briefcase on Bayley who's so stale and boring now that I just can't seem to care.



Then Joe who's been really good as a Champ gets his face busted by a 80 year old Rey who takes the belt. I'm wondering if they're setting up Rey's son to go over Joe


Then Shane the 50 year old pudgy Grey Haired middle manager goes over Miz who's actually been really good in a face role, because why?


God the booking is stupid and the matches have been uninspiring.

I love Jericho, but he's currently in line for a IWGP title shot over just about anyone else and will probably get his win back vs Omega next week. He's as big an issue as Lesnar in this respect.

Yeah, I kind of gave up after my last post. However I did note that Brock Lesnar won Money in the bank. Becky beat Evans, then lost to Charlotte who lost to Bayley after she cashed in the brief case.


I just can't spend 5 hours on a PPV anymore.

So the reason why the commentators were shocked at the end of the Joe Mysterio match was because it was decided to end the match early because of the amount of blood that Joe was leaking.


That was not the ending and the ref was counting no matter what.


I miss the days of crimson masks.
