WWE No Mercy 2017 Review (Spamming Finishers 101)


Two of the biggest hyped matches of the year ended in somewhat of a disappointing fashion for some fans at WWE No Mercy 2017.

John Cena vs. Roman Reigns at No Mercy 2017John Cena and Roman Reigns battled in a match of two of the most disliked wrestlers in modern history. In addition, Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship left a lot to be desired as well.

The women’s title match featuring Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Emma, and Nia Jax proved to be pretty good and Cesaro lost his front teeth during the tag team championship match.

We also discuss spamming finishers and why it’s a cheap way to have a “good” match.

This is our review and reaction to WWE No Mercy.


NJPW Destruction Tour 2017 Review

Over the month of September New Japan’s Destruction Tour took place in several cities in the Land of the Rising Sun, capping off with a U.S. Championship title defense of Kenny Omega vs. Juice Robinson.

Also on the tour: Hiroshi Tanahashi defended the IC Title vs. Zack Sabre Jr, KUSHIDA and Desperado had a killer Junior Heavyweight Championship match, and the IWGP Tag Titles were defended three times in triple threat matches between Guerrillas Of Destiny, The Killer Elite Squad, and the defending champs War Machine.

While the tour didn’t start off with a bang, we got some pretty quality matches in the stretch with KUSHIDA, Omega, Robinson and others.


WWE Summer Slam 2017 Review


The last few years of Summer Slam haven’t been all that great but 2017 proved to be a step up from the prior year.

With Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, and Samoa Joe headlining with a crazy Fatal 4Way match, Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Jinder Mahal for the WWE World Championship, and an undercard that had some decent matches and some really terrible ones, this year’s edition was a mixed bag.

This is our review of WWE Summer Slam 2017.


NXT TakeOver Brooklyn III Review

After a few less-than-awesome NXT TakeOver’s, the “developmental” brand of WWE comes back with a spectacular show for NXT TakeOver Brooklyn III.

Ember Moon challenges Auska for the NXT Women's ChampionshipFeaturing a NXT Championship match between Bobby Roode and Drew McIntyre, a Match of the Year contender between Asuka and Ember Moon for the NXT Women’s Championship, and a few other stand out matches on the night, the biggest surprise came with the emergence of former Ring of Honor stars.

Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish reunited as reDRagon to attack the tag division and aid former member of The Elite, Adam Cole, as he made his intentions clear to go after the NXT Championship.

We also had surprise commentary from Jim Ross and Corey Graves.


NJPW G1 Climax 27 Finals REVIEW

After four weeks, the G1 Climax 27 tournament concluded with three nights of amazing action.

Ricochet and Taguchi win the IWGP Jr. Tag TitlesNot only did we see the A-Block and B-Block decided in matches between Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Tetsuya Naito and the third match between Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada, we also got the IWGP Tag Team Championships defended by War Machine against the Bullet Club’s Cody and Hangman Page, the IWGP Junior Tag Titles defended by The Young Bucks against Ricochet and Taguchi.

There were many surprise returns on the final night of the tournament, including a major surprise by Katsuyori Shibata, the beloved Daryl, the infamous Killer Elite Squad, and a strange promo hinting at the debut of a new switchblade wielding star for New Japan.

This is our review of the final three nights of the G1 Climax 27.


NJPW G1 Climax 27 Finals Preview

With just a few hours until the three most exciting nights of pro wrestling of the year, we look at the lineup for the A-Block and B-Block finals of the G1 Climax 27.

As the tournament has worked itself out, we wind up with the Fantastic Four of New Japan Pro Wrestling heading into the finals with Hiroshi Tanahashi taking on Tetsuya Naito in the A-Block finals and the third encounter between Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada finishing off the B-Block.

While Naito vs. Tanahashi may be by-the-book, the Okada Omega 3 match has a few wrinkles in it that will make it possibly the best of the series between the two who have already had sensational matches so far in 2017.

This is our predictions and preview of the final three nights of NJPW’s G1 Climax 27.


NJPW G1 Climax 27 Nights 9 Through 12 REVIEW

Among featured matches from nights 9 through 12 were a slugfest between Tomohiro Ishii and Yuji Nagata, another epic between Ishii and Tetsuya Naito, Kota Ibushi and “The Ace” Hiroshi Tanahashi clashing, and Kenny Omega taking on a legend and a fierce upstart in EVIL.

We look back at the highlights from this week’s past tournament matches and look ahead to what might possibly be the storylines going into the finals.


NJPW G1 Climax 27 Nights 3 and 4 REVIEW
