Greg DeMarco’s WWE Royal Rumble 2022 Review & Reactions

Did you watch the 2022 WWE Royal Rumble? Greg did too, and here are his reactions and ratings!

One of the most popular events of the year—possibly THE most popular—took place this Saturday night in St. Louis. It’s the WWE Royal Rumble, 2022 edition, and it’s the start to wrestling’s most wonderful time of the year: the Road to WrestleMania!

Who kickstarts their journey to Dallas?

We had two monumental world title matches, and two pivotal Rumbles. Surprises, and so much more as we have come to expect from the Royal Rumble.

Quick note: I watched the Royal Rumble later Saturday night, on a delay. I managed to stay relatively spoiler free. The following items were the only ones spoiled for me:

  • Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins started off the show
  • Ronda Rousey returned during the Women’s Royal Rumble (which I predicted anyway)
  • The Riott Squat, in some form, was in the Rumble and eliminated by the Bella Twins

Quick note #2: I am writing this review as I watch the event, so you’re getting real-time reactions. I tend to focus more on storylines than in-ring action. If you want that, read Mitchell’s review, and watch the show!

Now then, let’s take a look at my reactions to the 2022 WWE Royal Rumble!

Universal Championship Match
Roman Reigns (champion) vs. Seth Rollins

More of the traditional stadium set-up for WWE, which I don’t love as much as the two baseball stadium events we got in recent years. Still looks amazing, a WrestleMania-like feel for this event, which is nearly parallel to WrestleMania itself for so many.

Not shocked at this match kicking things off—and honestly any match order wouldn’t shock me tonight due to the storylines intertwined on the men’s side, and the changed necessitated by Roman Reigns’ COVID diagnosis keeping him off WWE Day 1 in Atlanta.

Seth Rollins’ brilliance is on full display early on, making The Shield entrance after Friday’s Smackdown established that Roman’s biggest weakness is the end of The Shield in 2014. Pat McAfee following Rollins’ lead and isn’t afraid to talk about “Mox” when telling the Shield story, as you can’t have The Shield without Dean Ambrose.

Also, props to Samantha Irvin, who just got called up to Smackdown a couple of short weeks ago, and now she’s doing a stadium show.

Match notes:

  • Great mental jockeying to start, and a wonderful suicide dive by Seth
  • Rollins in Shield gear and Reigns in Shield pants gives me amazing memories
  • SHIELD BOMB! (I know it’s a simple powerbomb, but still—it’s the story)
  • Kudos to Michael Cole for also bringing up Dean Ambrose with that spot
  • Phoenix Splash and The Stomp early!
  • Pat McAfee is still a national treasure with his commentary, “The GOAT vs. The Visionary” and “Curtains” in a callback to his Michael Vick interview earlier in the week
  • The crowd hates Reigns? But they love the OOOH AAAAH before the Spear
  • PEDIGREE
  • This is a WrestleMania main event caliber performance by both men, and it’s opening up the Royal Rumble
  • And now we have a Triple H reference—we’re literally getting the entire Shield story tonight
  • Reigns didn’t even block half of those head kicks
  • Amazing Spear, and Rollins is LAUGHING
  • And he wants a FIST-BUMP! Rollins is brilliant
  • I do wonder if this ends with Roman getting over The Shield, and fully putting it to rest
  • DQ??? DQ??? DQ???
  • Shit bag ending if it sticks
  • Roman still can’t beat Seth, so that part makes sense
  • Note: everything happening after the bell still counts in my match rating
  • Roman with the exact replica of the Rollins CHAIRSHOT that ended the Shield
  • I know he ain’t coming, but this is the perfect spot for Ambrose/Moxley if he were still with the company
  • There is still so much story left in Reigns vs Rollins
  • Roman with another chair assault on Rollins before finally leaving

Result: Seth Rollins wins vis disqualification, Roman Reigns retains the Universal Championship

Match Rating: ****

We were headed towards a five-star match for my entertainment value. Brilliant performances all around, starting with Rollins’ entrance. The ending obviously hurts the match, but it’s all about the story, and I am happy that this story isn’t over.

Women’s Royal Rumble Match

Now, I have no idea who closely my bullet points will follow this, as it’s a lot of entrances and not a ton of story, usually, in these matches. Sasha Banks, who returned last night on Smackdown, enters #1. Melina at #2 is a surprise, usually we don’t get legends in that spot.

Match notes:

  • Melina, 42, still crushes the splits in her entrance. 👊
  • Is Sasha going on a Brock-like run?
  • Tamina enters #3, and Sasha isn’t even letting her in the ring
  • I really wanted Sasha to dump her right there—but I don’t care for Tamina
  • Kelly Kelly now enters at #4, Tamina not dumped so we’re at 3
  • Aaaaaand Kelly Kelly absolutely sucks
  • Hell of a bump by Kelly Kelly in her elimination, I will give that credit
  • #5 is Aliyah, or I guess Aliyah 3:17
  • Nice of Sasha Banks to Thesz Press herself (now is a good time to point out that Aliyah made her wrestling debut in 2013
  • Liv Morgan in at #6, which seems too early for her unless she is getting the “long run” rub tonight
  • Bad timing on the Eddie Guerrero trio suplex spot, happening during the countdown
  • #7 is Queen Zelina, who I will assume no one has picked to win
  • Zelina eliminates Sasha Banks??? Very early exit for The Boss
  • Bianca Belair in at #8 to get the crowd back into it after the letdown of Sasha’s elimination
  • #9 is Dana Brooke, and no one cares…
  • Dana Brooke does not enter with the 24/7 Championship, let’s see if she complains when Mickie James gets to enter with the Impact Knockouts World Championship
  • Still really surprised Sasha Banks went out so early
  • #10 is Wife Du Taker, Michelle McCool
  • Hate seeing Michelle McCool being pushed as a world beater in this spot, even worse that she hits the Styles Clash
  • #11 is The (Other) Boss, Sonya Deville; Sonya’s gear is amazing with the jacket
  • I honestly hope Deville waits until the end before getting in the ring (presumably against Ronda Rousey)
  • #12 is Natalya…yay
  • Tamina out, thankfully
  • Bianca Belair saving herself, no need for her to be out
  • #13 is Cameron, and I am so happy she’s getting the Brodus Clay entrance theme
  • I really hope Sonya dumps Cameron, then sits back down with the jacket on
  • #14 has to be Naomi next, right?
  • YUP!
  • Deville is out, and the story has been told
  • Aaaaaaand we’ve hit the boring stage after Carmella enters at #15
  • #16 brings the energy back to the match, in Rhea Ripley
  • Natalya’s spinning lariat does nothing for me—it’s almost like the spin takes away the power
  • And at #17, we have The Queen, Charlotte Flair; business should pick up now from a storyline perspective
  • Sonya Deville eliminating Naomi is amazing, almost as good as when Mandy Rose did it in 2019
  • #18 is Ivory, AND she has a live mic
  • Eliminated and she’s still talking! That’s a 60 year old woman, delivering in her spot. Well done, Ivory!
  • #19 is our first Bella twin, Brie Bella
  • YES! chants, as expected
  • #20 is Mickie James, with Impact Knockouts Championships AND lower third including her championship! Bravo, Scott D’Amore, bravo!
  • Amazing pop for Mickie, too
  • And at #21, they found Alicia Fox!
  • #22 is the oddly heel Nikki A.S.H.
  • 30-minute run so far for Liv Morgan, which now makes sense
  • #23 is Summer Rae, WWE “legend”
  • Summer Rae is out, thankfully—hopefully we can forget that ever happened
  • #24 is Nikki Bella, much bigger pop than Summer Rae (lol)
  • I can admit, I have missed Nikki Bella
  • #25 is the answer to that Riott Squat question from earlier, Sarah Logan
  • Welcome back, Sarah?
  • And there goes Liv…she had a good run
  • Fans are unhappy, maybe #26 is Ronda?
  • Nope, it’s Lita. And that works!
  • That’s it for Mickie, but let’s not forget that history was made tonight
  • #27 is Mighty Molly D.S.H. (Definitely A Super Hero)
  • Nikki attacks! This obviously makes sense
  • #28? RONDA ROUSEY
  • Could have been #30, but this works
  • Brie eliminates Nikki—love it
  • #29 is Shotzi Blackheart, who we all forgot existed because Ronda Rousey is here
  • Shayna Baszler gets #30 for the second time in her career
  • I’d love to see Ronda and Shayna as the final two
  • Charlotte eliminates Lita, making that match less likely now
  • Our final four: Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey, and Shayna Baszler
  • If Ronda eliminates Charlotte just to challenge her at WrestleMania, it seems to make Charlotte’s involvement in this just a silly addition
  • POINT TO THE SIGN, DAMMIT
  • Night 1 main event, Charlotte vs Ronda? Or WrestleMania 35 triple threat rematch?

Result: Ronda Rousey wins, last eliminating Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair

Match Rating: ***

It’s really hard to rate a Royal Rumble. Great in spots, slow in others. Mickie’s entrance was a highlight for me, and based on the reaction, Ronda Rousey winning was the right call. Kudos to WWE for revealing some “surprise” entrants while keeping others in their back pocket.

Raw Women’s Championship Match
Doudrop vs. Becky Lynch (champion)

This should be a win for Becky where Doudrop stands out. Hopefully she can drop that stupid name after this.

Match notes:

  • I can already tell they put Doudrop in a tough spot, following Ronda Rousey winning the Women’s Royal Rumble
  • Doudrop may have knocked Becky out with that roll into the corner

Result: Becky Lynch wins with a Super Manhandle Slam, and retains

Match Rating: ***

I didn’t take detailed notes as I wanted to watch this one to see if Doudrop had a breakout moment. I don’t feel like she did, honestly. This match was also hurt by it’s placement. This was the best spot for the mixed tag team match.

WWE Championship Match
Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar (champion)

Lashley enters in WrestleMania white, and this feels HUGE already. Brock Lesnar’s entrance still provides goosebumps. He’s the final boss, and that might never change.

Match notes:

  • Happy Hype Brock is the best Brock
  • I expect a short, heavyweight UFC fight
  • Dueling German Suplexes!
  • I love when Brock Lesnar is impressed with his opponent. That, for me, will always be Keith Lee’s best moment in WWE
  • Bob DESTROYED the ringside barrier
  • Brock’s dominance stopped by an F5 reversed into a Hurt Lock!
  • And there’s the ref bump. SHENANIGANS TIME!
  • Roman Reigns with the SPEAR
  • And Paul Heyman gives him the championship!
  • Now we were fixing the storylines

Result: Bobby Lashley pins Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship

Match Rating: ***1/2

Great heavyweight fight, and while it ended in shenanigans, those were needed. We are back to where we were supposed to be: Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.

The Miz & Maryse vs. Edge & Beth Phoenix

Everyone seems to be having a blast with their entrances. Also of note, we only had Michael Cole and Pat McAfee for the opening match, everything has been the Raw crew. I bet we get Cole & McAfee for the Men’s Royal Rumble match.

Match Result: Edge & Beth Phoenix win with tandem glam slams

Rating: ***

Nothing spectacular, but nothing offensive. This was fun, but I can’t imagine we get another match out of his feud unless it’s on television—or in Saudi Arabia.

Men’s Royal Rumble

Alright, by this point you know the drill. AJ Styles at #1? Could the chic pick go Broadway tonight? And AJ with the Shawn Michaels pose??? Foreshadowing? Shinsuke Nakamura enters at #2, and these two are very familiar with each other. Michael Cole saying “Boogz is in the Rumble a bit later on” to take away some of the surprise. Not that Boogz’ entrance matters, but still.

Match notes:

  • Does Pro Wrestling Illustrated still list the Intercontinental Champion as the defacto #1 contender?
  • Hair Club Theory enters at #3…meh
  • #4 is Robert Roode, who I will forever call Bob Roode thanks to Pat McAfee
  • TNA chants for Roode vs Styles!
  • And Bob is out
  • #5 is “and look who’s here” Ridge Holland
  • 90 seconds later we get Montez Ford, and we’ve hit a lull
  • Montez is amazingly athletic
  • Shinsuke entered with the Intercontinental Championship, Mickie James entered with the Impact Knockouts Championship, Damian Priest did NOT enter with the United States Championship
  • #8 is El Generico himself, Sami Zayn
  • #9 is Johnny Knoxville, exactly where you’d expect him
  • HE POINTS TO THE SIGN
  • Knoxville’s stay was short lived, as was Zayn’s—did exactly what it needed to do
  • #10 is Angelo Dawkins
  • Omos, who Christopher Platt somehow thinks will win this thing, enters at #11…far too early for a giant to enter is he’s going to win
  • #12, Ricochet, remains one of the most exciting members of the entire roster
  • #13 is Chad Gable, and he DOES get to wear his belt (don’t ask me to explain this)
  • So much for Damian Priest getting the long run
  • #14 is Eddie Guerrero’s son, Dominik Mysterio
  • And OMOS IS OUT! Sorry Platt…
  • #15 is Happy Baron Corbin, who sucks
  • He does get to eliminate Ricochet, which sucks as well
  • #16 is Dolph Ziggler, and this is his fifteenth Royal Rumble??? Damn!
  • Austin Theory gets recognized for being in 20+ minutes…can we go ahead and read his DMs?
  • Nevermind, he’s out
  • Sheamus in at #17, and I had no idea his Rumble win was also in St. Louis
  • Rick Boogz, who apparently has his own theme song, is #18
  • One-handed military press eliminated Chad Gable, off camera
  • This seems like a good spot for Kofi Kingston
  • Welp, it’s Madcap Riddick Moss, at #19
  • AJ Styles is eliminated by…Madcap Moss? Are we getting Styles vs. Corbin at WrestleMania???
  • #20 is Matt Riddle, and we gotta assume he’s eliminating Randy Orton, right?
  • Well I’ll be damned, it’s Drew McIntyre at #21
  • McIntyre eliminates the Happy duo, and then attacks them
  • #22 is Kevin Owens, and he and McIntyre brawl in the aisle for some reason
  • We get Rey Mysterio and the cover of WWE 2k22at #23
  • It’s a New Day for #24, Kofi Kingston—let’s see what his moment is this year
  • You know, Kofi would make a great winner
  • Interesting elimination for Kofi, maybe that’s the end of his amazing saves?
  • Otis enters at #25, with belt
  • “Otis who is first in class and last in class in the Alpha Academy…down to a knee”
  • #26 is Big E, a potential winner? After his move back to Smackdown, I am skeptical…
  • Amazing sell on that Brogue Kick by Big E
  • #27, Bad Bunny is here! (WWE shouldn’t have posted on Instagram that he was here)
  • Louis doesn’t seem to be familiar with Mr. Bunny
  • That Bunny Destroyer was ALL Riddle
  • The requisite celebrity elimination for Bad Bunny comes at the expense of Sheamus
  • SHANE MCMAHON
  • …at #28
  • I said Kevin Owens would get the celebrity match at WrestleMania, but it seems like he’s getting the Shane McMahon match at WrestleMania instead
  • Randy Orton at #29, leaving #30 as a surprise (unless I am forgetting someone, which I probably am)
  • And just like that Big E is out???
  • We’ve got to betting Lesnar at #30 now, right?
  • Yep, we are.
  • #30 is official Brock Lesnar, a pissed off Brock Lesnar
  • This won’t last long
  • And just like that, it’s Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre in the final two
  • The crowd is silent, just waiting for Brock to win
  • It was all academic, and Brock Lesnar is headed to WrestleMania

Result: Brock Lesnar eliminates Drew McIntyre to win the Royal Rumble

Match Rating: ***

That was a Royal Rumble. Nothing special, honestly. Lesnar wins, no RK-Bro break-up, a nasty bump for Kofi Kingston seems to end his spot prematurely, Shane McMahon surprise, but Brock Lesnar’s entry made it all but obvious.

King: Plotting The Return Of Randy Orton To WWE

Chris King is back with his look at the best scenario to bring Randy Orton back to WWE, and the perfect opponent for his first big match back.

Published

Randy Orton 4

Chris King is back with his look at the best scenario to bring Randy Orton back to WWE, and the perfect opponent for his first big match back.

I wanted to bring everyone’s attention to a superstar that’s being overshadowed right now, ‘The Viper’ Randy Orton. After RKBRO lost the Raw Tag Team Championships to The Uso’s, Orton vanished from the company. There was speculation about his serious back injury and, it wasn’t until The Viper’s wife herself posted a candid picture of Orton after successful surgery.

While the focus in WWE right now is either on The Bloodline, Bray Wyatt and Uncle Howdy, or the returning Cody Rhodes, I felt this was a good time to start plotting The Viper’s return to WWE.

Randy Orton’s Return to WWE

On the Raw-After-Mania ‘The American Nightmare’ opens the show after a tough battle over Roman Reigns to win the WWE Championship. Rhodes with tears in his eyes is giving an emotional promo about his family’s legacy, and how much this title means to him. The WWE Universe is chanting “You Deserve It,” and out comes Finn Balor flanked by The Judgement Day.

‘The Prince’ starts by congratulating the new champion for dethroning ‘The Tribal Chief’ but, now he wants his title shot. Rhodes being the resilient hero accepts Balor’s challenge for the main event. The American Nightmare and The Prince are putting on a clinic of a match, delivering multiple finishers but unable to put the other away. Judgement Day starts to interfere when Orton’s music blares throughout the arena. Orton takes out the heels and helps his former protege. Rhodes capitalizes and hits Crossroads for the 1.2.3.

The former Legacy members are celebrating and embracing with a hug as Rhodes goes to raise his newly-won title. In the blink of an eye, The Viper strikes and takes out Rhodes with an RKO Outta Nowhere! The champion is knocked out as Orton hoists the title above his head while trash-talking his now rival. Orton violently throws Rhodes out of the ring and delivers a nasty-looking draping DDT onto the floor.

The Build–And Culmination–of Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes

Orton stares giving 2009 vibes as Rhodes’ head raises, so The Viper runs and delivers a punt kick. WWE officials come out and break things up and the champion is stretchered out of the arena. The show closes with Orton grinning over the destruction he has caused to his former protege. Over the next few months, Orton and Rhodes enter into an extremely personal rivalry over the coveted prize. We finally make it to SummerSlam where both men agree to raise the stakes and do war inside HELL IN A CELL!!!!

This is how I would book The Viper’s return to WWE. If you feel like this should be written differently, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

AJ’s Phenomenal Opinion: Bray Wyatt

So everyone loves Bray’s return right? Right? Well the McDonald’s Sprite spicy opinions of AJ…may feel differently.

Published

on

Well, just because my work schedule changed, doesn’t mean I’m not going to drop some opinions of mine, of which, I haven’t done too bad with. I got Three out of Five for my returns right a few months back and this is going to be about the last entry on that previous list. I knew for a fact that Bray Wyatt would return to the WWE in some way shape or form and time for some… controversy.

As my favorite ratings winner of 83 Weeks once said, Controversy Creates Cash and boy HOWDY… Do I have something to get off my chest here so sit back, order some Chairshot Merch and lets get on with Adam’s… Rants for a bit.

Initial Thoughts

Bray coming in and making a return to the WWE was an inevitability. Death, Taxes and I guess WWE Returns are always guaranteed anymore and maybe we could get some new creativity with a supernatural gimmick. Bray has always had that supernatural to him ever since he had the Wyatt Family in Erik Rowan, the late Luke Harper and in the end, Braun Strowman. The Wyatt’s had a control like no other and were beloved for a moment in the WWE.

Bray did a lot to make sure things were in motion but for some reason any massive feud he had, he failed. Following a bunch of injuries to the rest of his family and even releases later on, he seemed to at least get some traction going for him. WWE Champion, somehow got Randy Orton with him, Universal Championships and got those big match wins that eluded him in the Wyatt Family beginnings. Let me also say this as well, I actually liked the Firefly Funhouse Match with Cena as a “This is Your Life” match of sorts. I was tickled and entertained… Then much like Bray in character, something changed.

Dark and Terrible Lurk with Fiends

We had a lot to figure out during the Pandemic. Like A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT. Through it all though, WWE figured it out but the person that helped these types of ideas, soured them drastically. Lets go back to the WWE Championship run in 2017. Randy Orton won the Royal Rumble that year and he wouldn’t betray Bray, right? Well he does and Mania for the two is set, Orton against Wyatt for the WWE Championship and it was… terrible. Random images of maggots and decay (Not the IMPACT Stable) popping up into the ring as the match goes on and Randy still wins. Through head game attempts, Bray comes up short in the big match moment. That’s odd but maybe it will be a bigger pictu– and Jinder Mahal wins the Championship. Okay.

Wyatt returns as this Mister Rogers character and has a darkness inside of him with The Fiend. Now we had this amazing theory or maybe that’s what happened but the story was, anyone The Fiend fought, they revert back to their best selves. The Miz returned to be the A Lister, the guy who grabs a microphone that you love to hate. Finn Balor doesn’t have the Demon Gimmick anymore because after his loss, he’s the Prince again. The cocky guy that walks around because he is the best, he gives no care in the world. Seth Rollins, who he took the WWE Universal Championship from, went from a dorky sweetheart back to the asshole taking every opportunity that he could get because he’s that much of a weasel and when he lost… He lost to Goldberg. The one guy that has been the same since 1997. Drums, Pyro Bath, Spear, Jackhammer, “Who’s Next?” and during that time, he sucked at points. One of those Rollins matches was in a Hell In A Cell match, the red cage with the red lighting. Match ending with a Stoppage from the referee… INSIDE OF A HELL IN A CELL (I think Sean Waltman said it best… Why did the match stop? It’s supposed to be Hell?) and it’s one of the rare times that I agreed with wrestling’s favorite Uncle… That was Negative Stars for a match.

After Goldberg, he didn’t have a commanding presence. He recruited Alexa Bliss who was already over whether she was a Heel or Face and made everything so unbelievably… boring. Alexa had to carry that idiotic demon gimmick and doll, not having anything really supernatural. Just some wrestling and Brock Lesnar cleaning up everything faster than a Chop Shop in main events and segments. He tried to return and make his grand return, beating the Universal Champion Braun Strowman at Summerslam just to falter a literal week later to Roman Reigns, who proceeded to never look back from that win. Bray gets fired after and no more supernatural ideas. Undertaker isn’t around really and retires, Kane is a mayor. Paul Bearer is no longer with us and everything is just… normal.

Wyatt’s Six (Reasons I Tune Out)

In 2022, Vince retires seemingly from everything and Triple H is at the helm, could he bring balance to everything? He makes a bunch of returns that people love seeing. Johnny Gargano, Dakota Kai, Tegan Nox, Bronson Reed, Dexter Lumus just to name a few and of course, the big one that everyone wanted. Bray Wyatt.

Bray makes this heartfelt return and everything seems great. We get him as him, he makes this weird build to a Wyatt 6, assuming we think it’s the Firefly Funhouse and he’s just talking, building. Alright well who is going to be these six figures because they are more than just puppets this time around. A masked man named Uncle Howdy that people think is Vincent Marseglia or maybe a bearded Bo Dallas who is Bray’s real life brother and he……… pops in and out to confuse people. Okay… (1)

Alexa might return to the 6 because of all the segments and gets darker and a heel. Alright that is perfectly fine but, WHY IS VINCENT DALLAS HERE AGAIN TO JUST INTERFERE WITH RANDOM THINGS? Okay… fine. (2) Alexa has a Women’s Championship match against Bianca Belair, that will make sense of thi– it’s a clean finish… Why is it clean? No Howdy, No Wyatt just a random VHS tape like I’m watching The Ring about her being dark after the match. Okay…… (3)

Oh Wyatt finally gets a feud for his return. I almost forgot about that! Who will be this first victim? LA Knight.

…Okay…… (4)

Maybe this will be good. They are both great on the microphone, maybe Bray has new moves that he can do and I know all too well how good LA Knight is, I have been an Eli Drake/Shaun Ricker fan for years. This could be a great match that they have, they announced it for the Royal Rumble so it’s going to be big and it’s a… Pitch Black Match presented by Mountain Dew.

O…okay…… (5)

The Royal Rumble is upon us, the Men’s Rumble starts the show and we all have adrenaline in our soul for it and now is this weird Pitch Black Match and it’s not a cinematic match. It’s in the ring, No Count Outs and No Disqualifications. LA Knight comes out in his iconic Yellow Attire and Wyatt is talking… with a mask on. The lights turn off and the ropes are glowing a neon greenish-yellow… with an announce table spot that… has Nickelodeon Slime inside of it when they break it? Okay fine… I knew the match was going to be dumb and gimmicky from the Mountain Dew Sponsorship. Bray wins, yay. LA Knight comes back with a Kendo Stick and… we get invulnerable Bray again… they don’t hurt. Lets go to this crash pad and Bo Marseglia shows up from somewhere and just elbow drops him from maybe fifteen to twenty feet with pyro and the Firefly Funhouse Puppets appear at the top, to watch a fire… And there is number six…

Actual Thoughts on Current Bray Wyatt, Post Rumble

I absolutely hate it.


This was awful. You build whatever insignificant thought process of the Wyatt 6 has going for it when Uncle Howdy does the best Cap’n Shane O elbow drop for a hellfire effect. At least the pyro was better than the AEW Explosion Match I guess…

Regardless, how does LA Knight come out of all of this moving forward? He lost an idiotic gimmick match and looks presumed dead. This just makes me think that whoever in whatever interview said Bray Wyatt is a creative mastermind needs to put whatever they have down before we hear about their T.O.D. posted somewhere. This Pitch Black Match is somehow worse than that Rollins Hell in a Cell Match and that takes talent. At least a good amount of alcohol lulled that from my brain but this made me remember that and enjoy the thought of that match happening with its finish. The best way I can picture how this was pitched was Burnt Dogshit, wrapped in a Kerosine Blanket with… sorry had to look at what I wrote, not putting that on websites but… people saw a Creative Quesadilla and when we got the actual product, it gave Salmonella poisoning and E Coli at the same time.

I really don’t want to see another Bray Wyatt match… again. Whoever gave him creative, take it away immediately. As much steam as Bray Wyatt gets in promos or possible matches in the past, the only steaming he gets at the end, is steaming piles of shit. You can say, he’s getting paid millions where I’m a little troll on the internet with typing power and I really don’t care but to me, Triple H… you finally got your first failing grade with something in your leadership role in WWE.
