The Chairshot Ratings & Review: WWE Elimination Chamber 2018

Published

on

So we get the first ever Women’s Elimination Chamber, coming to you from Las Vegas, Nevada. The namesake matches are really the only ones with palpable heat and fan intrigue, the rest of the matches just kinda fill out the card. Should be fun to see if Rousey signing her contract steps all over the women’s chamber, or if they space it out to a different point in the night.

I’m not sure excited for this show, but I feel like the Chamber matches will be entertaining. Maybe I can be surprised tonight.

Women’s Elimination Chamber for the RAW Women’s Title: Bayley vs Mandy Rose vs Mickie James vs Sonya Deville vs Sasha Banks vs Alexa Bliss (c)

Well now…wow. Mandy wasn’t exposed thanks to the lay out of the chamber releases and the women really brought it.

Mickie with a Thesz press off the top of a pod, Alexa with a Twisted Bliss from the top and a lot of usage of the chamber. The way the camera stayed on Bayley and Sasha after their respective eliminations is obviously hinting to an angle with them. So, we had good story telling, better wresting than many probably expected and a bunch of big spots.

Only negative would really be the crowd giving Alexa the “You Deserve It” chant after the match. Which…what’s up with that?

Rating: **** 1/4 (Platinum IV)

RAW Tag Team Title Match: Titus Worldwide vs Cesaro and Sheamus (c)

The match was the epitome of okay.

The crowd was in a general malaise, Apollo was beat on for a while, Titus came lumbering in and did stuff. Then there were a few sloppy spots with Sheamus missing a step to the top rope, the Clash of the Titus looking awkward, and just an overwhelming “meh”.

I doubt anyone bought this match, they just needed a match to get The Bar to their WrestleMania rivalry.

Rating: ** 1/2 (Silver II)

 

Asuka vs Nia Jax

I don’t get the build for this match or the story.

Sure the last few week Asuka was getting harder and harder opponents, but she’s beaten Nia in the past. Then the match ends with a roll up victory for Asuka, and Asuka looked exhausted. Then, Nia attacks her after, no sells strikes, and puts her through the barricade. Having Jax look relatively fresh after the match makes Asuka’s win look extremely weak.

I liked the fact that Nia almost hit a Banzai drop, but having Asuka get helped out by refs and basically destroyed after winning the match…the story telling is just inconsistent and bad. Trying too hard to make Nia look strong, made the match look pointless and now you have your number 1 undefeated contender look like she just got lucky.

Rating: ** 3/4 (Silver I)

 

Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt

The beach ball came out during this match, that should tell you how much people care about this match.

Between “We want Beach ball” and “Rusev Day” the crowd only responded to being able to chant “Delete”, but they were a useless crowd that just tried to get themselves over. As for the match…it happened. It was alright, but the dumb chants and commentary no selling them were sadly more entertaining than the action in the ring.

Hardy gets his win back since WWE loves 50/50 booking, but it’s uneventful and people obviously don’t care about this match either.

Rating: ** (Silver V)

 

Men’s #1 Contender for Universal Title Elimination Chamber: John Cena vs Elias vs Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns vs The Miz vs Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor

Well the women were hard to follow, and this wasn’t better.

Everyone spammed finishers on Braun, everyone ganged up on him, and he was able to dispatch and pin 5 of those guys. The reason I led with saying the women’s match was better, was because it was more fluid. The men talked and stalled often, they stopped to watch the eliminated guy leave the ring, the action was so stop and start I thought I was watching rush hour traffic.

Braun looks like a million bucks, but him just charging forward and getting a little cocky was the downfall for him. Braun put himself through a pod, and then put himself in a spot to eat like 3 Superman Punches and consecutive spears, to send our boy, the Samoan Sex Machine, Roman Reigns to WrestleMania.

Rating: *** 3/4 (Gold I)

 

So, in the afterglow I need to mention the Ronda Rousey signing. It was cringe off the charts until Angle outed HHH and Stephanie as the heels we all knew they were. Plus, when Ronda put Trips through the table, that was a cool moment. Also, WWE likes to copy things from Raw to Smackdown, but in the same damn show? Nia loses, destroys Asuka and puts her through the barricade. Braun loses, destroys Roman and puts him through a pod. Like seriously, does everything needs to end in the monster getting more over in defeat when it’s wholly irrelevant?

Much like I figured, the Chamber matches were the wrestling matches that mattered, and the Rousey signing was a moment that will push through to Mania and probably end in Angle & Rousey vs Steph and HHH. It was a slightly above average PPV all things considered, but there were enough entertaining spots in the show for me to say it was enjoyable.

Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Results & Match Ratings: 1.26.21

With Private Party earning tag title shots at No Surrender, what else does Impact do to draw interest for their ImpactPlus App special?

Published

on

So we got a little bit to work with from last week. We know that Private Party will have tag title shots at No Surrender, we know Taya is hauled off to jail to write her off for 2 to 3 years at least, Fire & Flava Fest will have MC Lish and Susan is much different than Susie.

Okay so admittedly that’s not a ton to go off of, so I suppose this should be a really helpful episode of Impact! Also we get to find out exactly when Moose wants to cash in the title shot Rich offered him for Willie’s safety.

First though, the most important thing, an update on the Fire & Flava Fest:

Ratings:

  • Matt Cardona & Josh Alexander vs Ace Austin & Madman Fulton: Cardona wins via Radio Silence – ***
  • Brian Myers vs Eddie Edwards: Myers wins by DQ – * ¾
  • Tenille Dashwood w/Kaleb with a K vs Rosemary w/Crazzy Steve: Rosemary wins via As Above So Below – **
  • Joe Doering w/ Deaner & Eric Young vs Cousin Jake: Doering wins via DVD/Short Arm Lariat – ** ¼
  • Moose, Sami Callihan, Ken Shamrock & Chris Bey vs Rich Swann, Tommy Dreamer, Willie Mack & Trey Miguel: Trey wins via Hurricanrana – ***

 

Results:

So after the main event recap from last week, we see Rich Swann head out to the ring. Swann makes the “target on my back” kind of promo, and then calls out Dreamer. He challenges Dreamer, out of respect and honor or something; giving Dreamer a title shot at No Surrender. This of course brings out the rest of the main event player heels, and they all have a solid claim. Hell, the guy who was stopping people from going out to the Parking Lot has a better claim than Dreamer.

So Sami Callihan, Chris Bey and of course, Moose, show up to make their statements. Brawl ensues, Willie Mack comes out for the save and the return from Moose taking him out, but then Ken Shamrock is a one man wrecking crew. This probably sets up a 8 man tag either tonight or next week, but I suppose it gets us….somewhere?

Matt Cardona & Josh Alexander vs Ace Austin & Madman Fulton

These teams trade moments of control, which was more just seeing if Cardona and Alexander could work together; while Fulton and Ace show a level of chemistry and tag team prowess that they were starting to put together before their brief hiatus.

The Sidewalk Slam/Guillotine Leg Drop is a nice combination, but the real takeaway was that Fulton doesn’t look nearly as big against Cardona and Alexander. Fulton did have great power moments, but both Alexander and Cardona found ways to rock the big man. Madman drags Alexander into the ring, they trade blows, but Ace eventually hits a High Roundhouse to knock Alexander down. Cardona gets lifted over Ace, into Fulton, with Radio Silence; all while Alexander recovers enough to grab Ace so he can’t break up the pin.

These AEW commercials are the same level of amateur cringe, because Tony Khan is talking. I really he didn’t make it obvious he was reading a prompter and using an acting level that even Brian Zane or the Angry Video Game Nerd would find campy.

Brian Myers vs Eddie Edwards

We get a fairly paint by numbers wrestling match, Eddie starts to out wrestle “the most professional wrestler” so it forces Myers to take a shortcut, or three.

As the match progresses we see Eddie get caught more by shortcuts than by getting outwrestled. So after a while, a man snaps. So Myers goes for the Charging Lariat, Eddie turns and goes after Myers’ face. He gauges at the eye with the tape over it, and then even goes as far as to bite Brian Myers while not letting go at the five count.

Eddie gets disqualified, Myers is crying about the attack and Eddie looks proud of himself. Maybe he’s really into the new Resident Evil vampire hot chick too?

Tenille Dashwood w/Kaleb with a K vs Rosemary w/Crazzy Steve

Tenille starts off quick, all in a way to distract the referee so she can use Kaleb’s camera bag. Rosemary still kicks out. This starts out a long timeframe of Tenille staying aggressive and in control. I was generally surprised she put in the effort, but she was very frustrated that Rosemary wasn’t staying down.

Rosemary starts her comeback, Tenille manages to side step the Spear, then tries a Double Underhook move, but Rosemary counters it with her own Double Underhook, and it finally has a name! As Above So Below, wins the match for Rosemary.

Fire and Flava Fest is…a trainwreck like expected. They run their mouths in the amusing way their characters have been built on, their catering is cheese sandwiches with the wrapper still on the cheese and it’s just sad. Nevaeh was dressed like the Stay Puft Fresh Man, they thought it was Fallah, but she and Havok clear the ring. Havok looks genuinely amused, but this segment was as cringe as expected.

Joe Doering w/ Deaner & Eric Young vs Cousin Jake

Joe finally gets a chance to show a pinch of his amazing ability. Jake had a few opening, but never took Joe off his feet and Joe dominated more often than not. An Inverted Slingshot Elbow, the Fun Splash, and just great power moves showed off why Joe is a former 2 time Triple Crown Champion.

Death Valley Driver into a Short Arm Lariat finished off Jake, but before they Pillmanized Jake, Eric called off the dogs and dropped the Violent by Design towel on Jake. Was it an offer, or a message to stop interfering?

Moose, Sami Callihan, Ken Shamrock & Chris Bey vs Rich Swann, Tommy Dreamer, Willie Mack & Trey Miguel

So Impact kept the worst of the Rascalz, and the other two become MSK. Who knows, maybe someone can teach Trey how to cut a promo and no more eggs and potatoes.  He dyed his hair blonde, so I guess we can see if anything else changed eventually.

This was fast paced and had decent moments. I appreciated the callback to when Moose and Bey tagged against Rich and Willie, where Moose just clubs Chris in the chest as a tag, shoots him into the ropes and then Powerbombs him onto the prone opponent. It’s a great tandem move, that gets across a lot of personality.

As for the match, they saved the final hot tag for Trey, and then we got to see his new aggressive style against Sami Callihan. We got the signature spam from everyone, but it still came down to Sami and Trey. Sami went for his Piledriver, but Trey flipped through the lift to hit a Hurricanrana for the flash pin!

 

Overall Score: 7/10

 After what felt like a questionable start, giving Dreamer basically the past champion’s provisional of title shots; it actually recovered fairly well. If you’ve been following Impact for more than 10 minutes, you knew the Fire & Flava Fest was going to be a shitshow, and boy was it. Tasha and Kiera are charming in their own mouthy ignorance, so they can carry a segment fairly well. We got a bunch of hints for more reveals, Beer Guns isn’t done, Trey Miguel returns (yay?) and Violent by Design sent a message.

This does a good job moving towards some of the bigger stories for No Surrender and moving forward, all while acknowledging AEW but not really using them for more than the awful commercial and a backstage segment. Plus the wrinkle in Eddie Edwards’ new approach could be interesting. Susan challenging Jordynne is pretty intriguing and starting the tension for the eventual Hawkins versus Ryder match is something I’m okay with if they build can stay clever with winks, while not relying too heavily on jabs or meta knowledge.

Fenix drags Baron up, fireman’s carry, FIRE THUNDER DRIVER!! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

Baron Black brought his game to a new level, but it still wasn’t enough to extinguish the Firebird! Will Fenix be on fire going towards the Beach Break trios main event?

 

Shanna VS KiLynn King!

Portugal’s Perfect Athlete is building power and rising up the ranks, but she still has a long way to go before the top. Will she be able to trump the would-be King?

The bell rings and Shanna circles with King. They tie up as fans rally and go around. Shanna arm-drags King down, King gets up and breaks free, and the two circle again. They tie up again, King puts Shanna on ropes then whips but Shanna handsprings! Shanna slips around to arm-drag and arm-drag! Shanna runs to huricanrana then enziguri! Cover, TWO!

The Doctor is in, and finally back in the ring! She has to be sharp if she’s going to take on Thunder Rosa at Beach Break! Will Britt break in Brooke Havok as she debuts in AEW?

The bell rings and Britt doesn’t even take Brooke that seriously as they circle. They tie up, and Britt throws Brooke down hard! Brooke checks her teeth but Britt just brushes herself off. Britt drags Brooke up but Brooke shoves Britt away. They circle again, tie up, and Britt wrenches an arm to a wristlock. Fans rally, Britt hammerlocks then headlocks then hits the takeover. Brooke headscissors but Britt shakes that off to keep on the head. Brooke fights up, pries free and then gets a headlock of her own. Brooke throws Britt but Britt gets the headscissors! Britt squeezes tight, Brooke tires to get free but Britt uses leverage to crank on the head.

Brooke moves around, Britt counters that to a grounded suplex, and gets up to suplex again! One and a half amigas, basically. Britt blows a kiss to the camera and Rebel’s cohost laugh returns. Britt drags Brooke back up, but Brooke throws a forearm! And then SLAPS Britt! Britt storms over, Brooke dodges and whips but Britt reverses, only for Brooke to tilt-o-whirl headscissors and dropkick! Britt wobbles as Brooke goes up top but Britt hits ropes to trip her up! Britt then YANKS Brooke off the ropes, stomps away on the legs, and steps through for an ANKLE LOCK! Britt keeps the leg trapped before she gives Brooke the SURFBOARD STOMP!

Rebel gives Britt the medical glove, Britt clamps onto Brooke, for the LOCKJAW!! Brooke taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission

The Role Model gives Brooke her very first loss in pro-wrestling, because this was Brooke’s very first match ever! Will Brooke learn a lot from this debut?

 

Santana and Ortiz speak.

“It’s the time of year where it’s the popular type of trend to say ‘New year, new me.'” But the fact is, Santana and Ortiz have had their eyes on the prize the entire time. For all those teams who have been asleep, wake up and smell the coffee. It’s their time to eat. This is fair warning, so beware.

 

Abadon VS Vertvixen!

The Living Dead Girl is back! And though she isn’t AEW Women’s Champion, the chase is never over! Will Abadon haunt Vertvixen’s nightmares as she chases a golden dream?

The bell rings and Abadon goes right after Vert! Vert manages to get away as the ref reprimand Abadon, but Abadon runs in to RAM Vert in the corner! And again and again! Abadon lets off to then hit a METEORA! Vert flounders around, Abadon drags Vert up but Vert jawbreakers! Abadon wobbles but stays up to stare at her with those soulless eyes. Vert hits a forearm but Abadon BACK HANDS her! Abadon whips Vert but Vert hits back with forearms! Abadon clinches and knees Vert over and over! Abadon whips, Vert sunset flips but Abadon punches right out! Abadon sits Vert up to STOMP her down!

The ref is too scared to reprimand, but Abadon drags Vert up by her hair. Abadon CLUBS Vert, and again, and again! Fans rally but Abadon whips Vert. Vert stops herself to BOOT back! Vert runs in, into a FISHERMAN EXPLODER! Abadon sits up and dribbles Vert off the mat over and over! The ref tries to reprimand but Abadon scares him more. Abadon drags Vert up, reels her in to a Gory Bomb, for the CEMETERY DRIVE!! Cover, Abadon wins!

Winner: Abadon, by pinfall

Vert ended up with more than a chill up her spine, and Abadon continues to creep her way up the ranks. Will Abadon return to the title picture to haunt Hikaru Shida all over again?

 

The Walk Off: “Pretty” Peter Avalon VS Lee Johnson, Guest Judges: Brandi Rhodes, Jerry Lynn, and Aubrey Edwards!

The Pageant Provocation has taken a new form! Avalon challenged Big Shotty to this contest of style and grace, but will he end up the one losing?

The judges are already on stage as Justin Roberts introduces the concept’s rules. The three “pretty” judges will watch as each man, with one stylish outfit each, will take 10 steps down the runway, pose, then walk back those 10 steps. The winner will be determined by Brandi, Jerry and Aubrey. But then Avalon walks out and wants Justin to let him handle those introductions himself. Obviously we have Brandi Rhodes, who was an international model on magazine covers, and now is a pregnant mother to be. Avalon believes that makes her a MILF: A Mother I’d Like to Forget. Then there’s Aubrey Edwards, AEW’s premier female referee, but wait shouldn’t she be in the Kentucky Derby? And lastly, Jerry F’N Lynn! He’s like Spinal Tap, brings it to an 11, he is beautiful. Avalon’s standards are weird.

But anyway, with Avalon out here, Big Shotty makes his entrance! Despite the loss earlier tonight, Johnson cleans up nice in his suit, slacks and shoes. Johnson will start us off with his 10 step strut on the red carpet. He hits the pose, does a spin even, and then walks back up the red carpet. Fans are on his side, but the judges give their scores. Aubrey has a 9, Brandi has a 9, and Jerry has a 9! All nines across the board, so Avalon will have to get at least one 10 to win.

Avalon takes off the robe to show off his own shining smoking jacket. PPA struts his stuff, stutters a step, but strikes the pose and unbuttons the jacket. Avalon struts his way back, and now for the judges’ scores. Aubrey says a 9, Brandi says a 9. And Jerry says a… Wait, he wants a replay? The production team puts it on the titantron, and yes, Jerry saw it, too! The stutter step! That will have to affect his scoring. Jerry hates to do this, but it’s not a 9, but a 6!! Johnson wins!!

Winner: Lee Johnson

Avalon is furious that he lost his own concept! And then CEZAR BONONI shows up to DECK Johnson!? Avalon likes that! Avalon adds on stomps but Jerry Lynn steps up to defend Johnson! PPA may be a sore loser, but will Big Shotty get payback for that cheap shot?

 

Santana & Ortiz VS Ryzin & Mike Verna!

Despite being the tag team Chris Jericho brought to AEW, Proud ‘n’ Powerful did NOT win the Inner Circle Triple Threat Tag Challenge! Will they vent their frustrations out on the Priest of Sin and the Real Man of Steel?

The teams sort out, and Verna insists he start. Ryzin reluctantly accepts, and Verna circles with Ortiz. They tie up, Verna headlocks but Ortiz powers out. They ram shoulders, both men stay up so Ortiz dropkicks Verna down! Ortiz baits Verna in, to spin him and hit a backbreaker! Ortiz hits a HALF HATCH, then he runs in at the corner to splash! Tag to Santana, Ortiz whips Santana in for the uppercut! Santana brings Verna up to suplex high and hard! Fans rally as Santana CHOPS Verna! And KICKS him! Santana drags Verna up, tags in Ortiz, and PNP mug Verna on the ropes. They whip, Verna reverses, rocks Santana but Ortiz dodges! Santana fireman’s carries, Ortiz runs in, DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER COMBO! Santana DECKS Ryzin while Ortiz covers, PNP wins!!

Winners: Santana & Ortiz, by pinfall

That win was faster than a speeding bullet! But sadly, being the fifth ranked team in AEW doesn’t matter anymore if #Y2MJF is the official team of the Inner Circle. Will Santana and Ortiz take out every other tag team to prove a point to Jericho?

 

Tay Conti w/ Anna Jay & Negative One VS Davienne!

The Brazilian blackbelt continues to hang out with The Dark Order, but has she officially joined up yet? Can she convince AEW’s new arrival to #JoinDarkOrder?

 

 

Preston Vance w/ Alan Angels & Negative One VS Ray Jaz!

Number 10 was just as disappointed as the rest of the Dark Order when Hangman Page chose NOT to #JoinDarkOrder, but you can’t dwell on the past! Will Vance move forward and perhaps even convince his opponent to sign up in Hangman’s place?

 

 

Red Velvet VS Madi Wrenkowski!

Things have been bittersweet for Red Velvet lately, but there’s always a chance to rebound! Will Velvet be serving up a fresh L tonight?

 

 

Sean Maluta VS Danny Limelight!

The Samoan Dragon and the Boricuan Spider are 1v1 for the first time in AEW! Which bright young star shines brighter in the Dark?

 

 

Ivelisse w/ Diamante VS Jazmin Allure!

La Sicaria and the Cuban Diamond have been running strong as a tag team, but it’s back to singles actions for tonight. Will Ivelisse be better than her #TopTier opponent?

 

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Hook VS Jake St. Patrick!

Team Taz’s Machine and Absolute are going to take on Darby Allin and Sting in a Tag Team Street Fight at AEW Revolution, but the rest of the team is still pursuing the top spots! Will the Powerhouse pulverize his opponent to prove he’s worthy of the upper ranks?
