NXT Dusty Rhodes Classic Tournament Bracket Updated



Dusty Rhodes Classic

WWE has made a minor change to the tournament bracket, the 2018 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic on Friday afternoon. The original brackets announced Friday morning had SAnitY vs. Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss in the first round of the left side while TM-61 vs. The Authors of Pain was listed at the top of the right side in the first round.

Those two matches were switched to opposite sides. You can see the updated bracket below with the changes made:

First Round

  • The Street Profits vs. Heavy Machinery
  • TM61 vs. The Authors of Pain
  • Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss vs. Alexander Wolfe & Eric Young
  • Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch vs. Tyler Bate & Trent Seven


  • The Street Profits or Heavy Machinery vs. TM61 or The Authors of Pain
  • Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss or Alexander Wolfe & Eric Young vs. Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch or Tyler Bate & Trent Seven

My Thoughts:

This tournament has been a fantastic since the very first one. TM61 is the favorite for most people. Sanity and Authors Of Pain while the more experienced teams, look to be moving up. If you ask me I would like to see TM61 and Bate/Seven in the finals. However unlike most people I would like to see the United Kingdom pairing take the win. This in my opinion would launch both teams onto a new level. TM61 doesn’t need the win and this loss could setup both teams for success.

Jimmy Jacobs On WWE’s Ratings, Seth Rollins & Matt Jackson Respond



Jimmy Jacobs defends against criticism of WWE’s recent RAW ratings!

To say that many fans and members of the wrestling media have been taking WWE to task in recent weeks over the ratings, most specifically for Monday Night RAW, would definitely be called an understatement.

After declining viewership for three consecutive weeks and record lows (check out this week’s numbers), the criticism of the company’s booking has not been hard to find. So much so that it has even been put into angles on television, as we saw this past Monday with the opening segment involving Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin. When the ratings for the red brand were revealed yesterday, The Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the results:

One person who took notice and would actually come to WWE’s defense would be former member of the company’s creative team and current independent star, Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs was let go last year after he took a photo with members of The Bullet Club while they were outside of a Monday Night RAW taping. Now competing for the likes of MLW and IMPACT Wrestling, Jacobs was quick to point out the other side of the coin to Alvarez:

Not only did this earn a reply from WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, but interestingly enough, Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks would also agree with Jacobs:

Jacobs would continue, replying to a number of fan responses:

WWE News: Updated Card For TLC Following Additions/Changes This Week



TLC Orton Rey
The updated card for Sunday’s WWE TLC!

Now that this week’s editions of Monday Night RAW, SmackDown Live and the Mixed Match Challenge are officially in the books, the WWE Universe turns its attention to Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.

There were some alterations and additions to the card at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, but not the ones some fans expected with Braun Strowman still recovering from surgery and Finn Balor off of the road due to an illness (read that story here). On RAW, we learned that the Elias vs. Bobby Lashley bout will now be a Ladder Match where a guitar will be hanging above the ring and the first main to gain possession can utilize it (see the announcement here).

Then yesterday, it was announced that Buddy Murphy would defend his Cruiserweight Title against Cedric Alexander (find that here) and on SmackDown Live last night, it was revealed that Randy Orton would take on Rey Mysterio in a Chairs Match (check that out here). Plus, the Finals of the Mixed Match Challenge are now set after Carmella and R-Truth, as well as Alicia Fox and Jinder Mahal solidified their spots (read the breakdown with Mitchell’s Mixed Match Challenge Report).

Here’s a look at the updated lineup for TLC, which you can catch Sunday live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network (Mixed Match Challenge Finals will also live stream on Facebook Watch) beginning at 7PM EST with the Kickoff starting at 6PM. At this time, it’s not known what will be on the Kickoff, however it’s speculated one or two matches will be moved there instead of any new ones being announced. Of course, that’s not confirmed:

Tables, Ladders & Chairs for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
