Howdy and welcome to The Remaining Lower. The one column that comes with a model new free air guitar for each reader! What number of different columns provide such freebies? Yeah, nicely opening strains aren’t my robust level actually.
Effectively, it’s that point of the month once more once I provide my ideas concerning the latest No Means Out pay-per-view. Going into the present many exclaimed that it could be one of many worst pay-per-views in latest reminiscence, even worse than Badd Blood, and consider me that’s unhealthy!
So with an open thoughts I sat down, with my three large packets of Walkers Sensations crisps and a pleasant massive bottle of coke, to observe the present.
Now earlier than I launch into my assessment of the matches I simply wished to say a match that I noticed on Warmth simply earlier than the pay-per-view began. Usually I don’t watch Stay Warmth, I discover it usually seems to be 45 minutes of begging folks to order the pay-per-view after which a poorly thrown-together match.
However not on this event. After their regular begging session they held a six-man tag match that includes London, Kidman, and Ultimo Dragon vs. Akio, Sakoda and Tajiri
The match was exceptionally good, in all probability higher than most of what we noticed on the precise pay-per-view! It’s matches like this that may enhance the cruiserweight division and can acquire the curiosity, now if solely they might put these type of matches on Smackdown and the pay-per-view….
Smackdown’s tag group division is missing considerably proper now and including Akio/Sakoda and London/Kidman to the division would do the present completely no hurt in any respect.
I’ve been a fan of Tajiri and Ultimo Dragon having a feud for alongside time now and consider good construct up could be good for a Wrestlemania showdown, maybe for the Cruiserweight championship, and would make up for the way in which World Wrestling Leisure have handled Ultimo Dragon since he arrived.
[Tag Team Championship Handicap Match]
Rikishi/Scotty 2 Hotty Vs. The Basham’s/Shaniqua
While I used to be watching this match it all of the sudden dawned on me that Rikishi doesn’t use his patented Rikishi Driver transfer any extra, which is a disgrace as a result of I assumed the transfer was much better than his “soar on them from the rope” transfer that he does now.
On Uncooked The Dudley’s have discovered their area of interest as the nice and cozy up tag group, and it seems to be like Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty have the identical area of interest on Smackdown. And if it really works nicely then why not allow them to proceed doing it? It will get them on tv.
The precise match was nothing particular, it was a typical heat up match and did what it was meant to do, it warmed up the gang. There was no Worm or Stink Face which lowered the match score for me. It could have been satisfying to see Shaniqua getting her face in between Rikishi’s cheeks.
Winner: Scotty & Rikishi
Nidia Vs. Jamie Noble
Not lots of people gave this match an opportunity in hell, many mocked it as a waste of house they usually have been shortly proved unsuitable with some of the entertaining matches I can really keep in mind.
OK, so it was not going to be all armlocks and throws however they have been requested to make us giggle and that they certainly did. The gang lapped it up and it made lots of people at dwelling giggle as nicely.
Noble groping his approach across the ring as Nidia kicked him within the butt a number of instances. And when Noble took his blindfold off to cheat and win the match it helped restore that heel edge to his persona.
Winner: Jamie Noble
[Tag Team Match]
The APA Vs. The Worlds Best Tag Workforce
While watching this match I seen two issues. Firstly I seen that Bradshaw is such a nasty wrestler, he makes Hardcore Holly seem like a foremost occasion star! Watching Bradshaw brings out a sudden urge to hurl one thing at your tv, simply to make him cease!
The second factor that I seen in that match was that poor outdated Farooq’s profession within the ring is nearly over. On this match it ought to that he simply can not go the tempo any extra and it was a tragic sight to observe.
Absolutely now could be the time to retire and let the followers keep in mind him for what he has achieved? However what do I do know I’m merely a wrestling journalistic parasite.
However the match was not THAT unhealthy for they’ve the strong efficiency of Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas to assist carry the match, and carry the match they actually did. They undoubtedly moved the match was horrible to watchable for my part.
Winner: The Worlds Best Tag Workforce
Rhyno Vs. Hardcore Holly
I really fell asleep midway by way of this match, not as a result of the match was that unhealthy however extra to the truth that I can not stand Hardcore Holly’s type and it bores me to sleep.
To be sincere from what I noticed of the match, earlier than I fell asleep, it regarded higher than anybody might have imagined, at some factors they have been really wrestling!
The end was fairly rushed, Rhyno was allotting some very harsh trying strikes and all of the sudden Hardcore Holly took the win. Allow us to prey that Hardcore Holly goes again to beating up the smaller, youthful guys in OVW or someplace.
Winner: Hardcore Holly
[Cruiser Weight Title Match]
Chavo Guerrero Jr. Vs. Rey Mysterio
A match that almost all wrestling followers had been ready for, a pleasant lengthy cruiserweight match on a pay-per-view! The additions of that boxer (whose identify escape me proper now) and Chavo Guerrero Sr. might have taken quite a bit away from the match however they barely bought concerned which meant that the followers might think about the motion IN the ring.
When Chavo Guerrero Jr. gained and lower an interview backstage that put the icing on the cake for me. It has added that little one thing to the title that was lacking for alongside time. The title really means one thing now each to the wrestlers and the followers.
I’ve mentioned this earlier than and I’ll say it once more. If World Wrestling Leisure actually wish to give us good matches then merely let the cruiserweight division do their factor. Ultimo Dragon, Paul London, Rey Mysterio, Billy Kidman, Tajiri, Chavo Guerrero, the checklist is lengthy, all of those might give us nice matches in the event that they have been allowed to work.
I’m hoping that they are going to proceed this feud between Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Rey Mysterio proper as much as Wrestlemania after which possibly give them one other 17 minutes on the pay-per-view to mild up the place.
Why do I’ve a sense I’m wishing right here?
Winner: Chavo Guerrero Jr.
[Number #1 Contender Match]
Kurt Angle Vs. Massive Present Vs. John Cena
The most important shock of this match was not the truth that Kurt Angle gained, I believe all of us knew he would, the large shock for me was the match solely went about 12/13 minutes. Massive Present and John Cena’s accidents have to be as unhealthy as than first thought.
The massive bump of the match was seeing Massive Present Angle-Slammed excessive rope. My solely concern was a 500 pound man hitting the concrete at that peak? That might not have accomplished his harm any good!
It was no shock when Angle walked out the winner after making John Cena faucet out. I’m on the lookout for Angle to show heel on Eddie Guerrero within the subsequent week or so. Perhaps by saying it was him who attacked Eddie Guerrero?
Over the previous yr Massive Present has impressed me along with his new discovered need to work, possibly he has realised he doesn’t have lengthy left on his contract? Regardless of the purpose lengthy might it proceed.
Winner: Kurt Angle
[WWE World Championship]
Brock Lesnar Vs. Eddie Guerrero
And so we come to the primary occasion of the night. The construct as much as this match was improbable, from the Eddie Guerrero promos on Smackdown over the previous month proper as much as Goldberg being arrested after assaulting Brock Lesnar within the ring on the pay-per-view.
When Eddie Guerrero made his approach out to the ring the followers reacted and have been 100% behind Eddie Guerrero throughout the match, which gave off a fantastic environment.
Everybody knew that Goldberg would return to price Brock Lesnar the World Title and the match, it was only a matter of how and when would he do it? The match was booked to perfection, Brock Lesnar was left to do his stuff while Eddie Guerrero acted like the everyday underdog.
It was the end that made it good for me. Goldberg hit the ring (how did he get out of his handcuffs and alter a shirt?) and did his enterprise to Brock Lesnar. The spotlight of the match although was Eddie Guerrero countering the F5 by hitting a twister DDT, stunning!
What a mark out second when the ref’s hand got here down on the canvas and shouted three. The place went nuts, I even marked out as Eddie Guerrero went out of the ring and celebrated along with his household. That topped it off properly when he went and hugged his household.
I might be so daring as to even go so far as saying that Eddie Guerrero and Brock Lesnar’s battle is match of the yr to date. And it could not shock me if there match is up three on the finish of the yr.
Winner: Eddie Guerrero
So. The pay-per-view was one more success and but once more reveals simply why Smackdown are wiping the ground with Uncooked. One thing must be accomplished. Perhaps the addition of Chris Benoit to Uncooked might elevate their pay-per-views.
Till subsequent time.
