WWE News: First Matches Announced For This Coming Monday’s RAW

RAW
Two big matches announced for Monday’s WWE RAW!

The WWE’s RAW roster is on the road this weekend for Live Events, beginning last night in Charleston, West Virginia (check out results here) as they head towards the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee for Monday’s new episode.

With Monday putting us officially less than two weeks away from Royal Rumble on January 27th in Phoenix, the upcoming episode of the red brand will surely continue the build to the event. Now, WWE has confirmed that theory, announcing two big matches for RAW.

First, Sasha Banks will team up with her Royal Rumble opponent, RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey, as they take on the intimidating duo of ‘The Irresistible Force’ Nia Jax and Tamina. On top of that, WWE has also revealed that after what took place on this week’s RAW, next Monday Dean Ambrose will have to defend his Intercontinental Championship once again. This time around, he won’t be facing just Seth Rollins, but also ‘The All Mighty’ Bobby Lashley in a Triple Threat:

If you’re unable to tune in to RAW on Monday, you can always keep up with the action right here on The Chairshot with Mitchell’s Live Report beginning at 8PM EST. You can also join the conversation with various personalities from The Chairshot as they live tweet their reactions and thoughts (@theCHAIRSHOTcom).

ROH News: First Tag Wars Match Announced For Road To G1 Supercard In Dallas

Published

Road To G1 Supercard
Ring Of Honor has revealed the first match for Tag Wars!

Now that Ring Of Honor has put Saturday Night At Center Stage (see spoilers here) and Honor Reigns Supreme (check out Andrew’s Ratings & Notes), their next action comes in Dallas, San Antonio and Houston on January 24th, 25th and 26th for the Road To G1 Supecard.

We already know that all three events will feature the return of Tag Wars, where the winners not only receive an ROH World Tag Team Championship opportunity, but a spot in the NWA’s revived Crockett Cup (more on that here).

Today, ROH has revealed the first match for Tag Wars in Dallas as Brody King and PCO of Villain Enterprises take on The Kingdom’s TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia:

VILLAIN ENTERPRISES TO FACE KINGDOM IN TAG WARS IN DALLAS

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – Dallas!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

The live event in Dallas features Night 1 of Tag Wars, a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

The first match announced for Tag Wars in Dallas pits PCO and Brody King of the newly formed Villain Enterprises against The Kingdom’s Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan, two-thirds of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions.

Marseglia and O’Ryan learned first-hand why there was so much buzz surrounding PCO and King, who were two of pro wrestling’s hottest free agents before signing with ROH last month.

During ROH’s international television taping in Philadelphia, Kingdom leader Matt Taven, Marseglia and O’Ryan were about to pounce on “The Villain” Marty Scurll, who appeared to have no backup. That’s when the lights went out, and when they came back on, PCO and King were standing alongside Scurll. Villain Enterprises was officially open for business.

A brawl ensued, with Villain Enterprises getting the better of The Kingdom, who quickly retreated.

Villain Enterprises has been undefeated in six-man tag matches since then, including a big victory over ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe and Silas Young at Honor Reigns Supreme Jan. 13 in Concord, N.C. The match in Dallas will be the first traditional tag match for PCO and King in ROH.

PCO and King are both no-nonsense, physical freaks of nature, but Marseglia and O’Ryan have the edge in experience as a team and have shown that they will stop at nothing to attain victory.

Tag Wars kicks off with three tag matches in Dallas and continues with three more tag matches on Jan. 25 in Houston. On Jan. 26 in San Antonio, the winning teams from the first two nights will compete in a pair of three-way tag matches. The two winners of those matches advance to the finals later that night.

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for first-round match announcements.

WWE News: SmackDown Live Rating Back Up A Bit, Climbs To 2nd In Ranks (1/15/19)

Published

on

SmackDown Live
A look at the rating and ranking for last night’s SmackDown Live!

Over the two weeks where Monday Night RAW gave us pre-taped episodes taking place on the eve of holidays, the red brand’s ratings took a pretty big hit. Meanwhile SmackDown Live was also pre-taped and fell on those holidays, yet didn’t see as bad of a dip.

Last week, the numbers went down for the blue brand however, although it was their first live episode in weeks (check out last week’s numbers here). The numbers are in for this week’s follow-up and with RAW once again showing significant improvement (more on that here), SmackDown Live has gone back up some with a 2.143 rating, increasing 5.46%. Here’s the last four weeks of ratings for the blue brand:

  • December 25th: 1.904
  • January 1st: 2.091
  • January 8th: 2.032
  • January 15th: 2.143

When it comes to the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic this week, RAW dominated while SmackDown Live has moved up a couple of spots from last week to number two. However, their share of the demographic actually decreased ever so slightly by .01. Here is Tuesday night’s top five:

  1. The Curse Of Oak Island – History – 0.74
  2. SmackDown Live – USA Network – 0.70
  3. The Haves And Have Nots – Oprah Network – 0.39
  4. The Rachel Maddow Show – MSNBC – 0.38
  5. Body Cam – Investigation Discovery – 0.35

EA’s Take: Most weeks you will catch me trumpeting the fact that week-in and week-out, SmackDown Live has been more consistently the better product than Monday Night RAW. This week, that’s not the case and I don’t think it’s even close. Outside of the incredible Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade match, the blue brand offered nothing that I was interested in. There’s no excuse for it either coming off of pretty hot episode of RAW. I think at this point we can say that as wrestling fans, SmackDown Live is still the better show. However, it very obviously takes more than that to pull in casuals and get the blue brand to beat out RAW.
