Greg DeMarco’s WWE Royal Rumble 2021 Review & Match Ratings

Greg DeMarco is here to review your 2021 Royal Rumble! Bianca Belair and Edge prevail, what did Greg think???



WWE Royal Rumble

Greg DeMarco is here to review your 2021 Royal Rumble! Bianca Belair and Edge prevail, what did Greg think???

It’s time for the wrestling’s third biggest show of the year, the Royal Rumble! (For those wondering, the other two are WrestleMania and WrestleKingdom. It’s my column, not yours.)

Match Ratings

  • Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler beat WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair & (Raw Women’s Champion) Asuka when Jax pinned Flair after shenanigans and a really bad legdrop – TITLE CHANGE – ***1/2
  • WWE Champion Drew McIntyre pinned Goldberg following a Claymore to retain – ***
  • SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks beat Carmella with the Banks Statement to retain – ***
  • Women’s Royal Rumble Match – Bianca Belair last eliminates Rhea Ripley to win – ***3/4
  • Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing Match to retain – ****1/2
  • Men’s Royal Rumble Match – Edge last eliminates Randy Orton to win – ****

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship – Charlotte Flair & WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka (c) vs. Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler

Usually WWE gives us a treat on the Kickoff, and other times we get crap. This time, fans were treated to a high quality match with a shit finish. All four did what they do best (which for Nia is “nothing”), and Charlotte was really motivated. I would love to see Shayna Baszler vs. either Asuka or Charlotte Flair down the road, even if we are headed towards Charlotte Flair vs. Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania in my opinion.

But don’t get it twisted (not yet, anyway), this match was really really good before the finish. They had me invested, and I wanted to see how this would end. That was the only let down–Ric Flair and Lacey Evans interjecting themselves into the match, and ultimately impacting the finish.

And man, that legdrop is horrible.

WWE Championship – Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Goldberg

Say what you want about him, call him Grandpa, complain that Goldberg is taking a spot from a full time talent. That’s all fine and well, but the dude is in phenomenal shape for ANY age, and looks more legit than many wrestlers half his age.

And he draws better than them, too.

“Epic” staredown before we officially start the match, plus a headbut and dueling spears. Goldberg, by the way, borrowed Brock Lesnar’s gear. (Yes, that makes more sense of the “Goldberg Tribal Tattoo Logo” doesn’t appear on Bill’s trunks.)

“Ring the Damn Bell.” Of course Goldberg kicks out of the Claymore.

So as you know, Drew wins. And honestly, this match was exactly what it needed to be. A heavyweight slugfest that ended in a knockout. And Goldberg gave him the love and respect after. And then Drew made fun of Goldie for being blown up, just for funsies.

SmackDown Women’s Championship – Sasha Banks (c) vs. Carmella

Carmella has improved so much since coming to the main roster, and the only thing I’d change now is the stupid Silhouette version of herself that a) doesn’t even look good, and b) looks like crap compared to actual Carmella. Sasha Banks being added to this card is no surprise to me, she’s the third biggest star in the company. Don’t believe me, look up the current Disney+ subscriber rate.

Great work by everyone involved, including Reginald. I am so glad WWE hasn’t changed Sasha Banks despite her alignment. This match is a perfect example of Heel Villain (Carmella) vs. Heel Hero (Sasha).

I’ve been watching wrestling for far too long, and the surprise small package still makes me smile. As expected, the Banks Statement ended this match (and feud), and it seems like Sasha can move onto what’s next. Bayley or Bianca? Bayley is my pick for ‘Mania.

Give Carmella a ton of credit here, this was in no way a match carried by Sasha Banks. They were equal dance partners in this one.

Bad Bunny Performance

Fans who don’t “get” Bad Bunny, or who drop “Who” bombs on him are dumb. The performance was good, and Booker T looks like he can still go today. I hope he’s a surprise Royal Rumble entrant.

Women’s Royal Rumble Match

So this is going to be more “Stream of Consciousness” style, so enjoy!

  • Bayley being #1 in the Rumble sure doesn’t help my pick of her winning. I know it’s not impossible, but it damn sure ain’t probable. Bianca Belair coming in at #3 and winning wouldn’t shock me one bit. And Naomi being back is definitely a good thing. Can we get her involved in the Roman Empire?
  • Billie Kay should just sit at ringside until the end of the match, then get eliminated. Or win. I’d be fine either way, and she needs the resume builder. I’m sure Rhea Ripley or someone like her will throw her in.
  • I really wanted to see Billie Kay try to drive the tank, but Shayna Baszler punching her 8×10 made up for it. And Billie Kay approaching every entrant is a trend I’d like to see for the next 30 minutes. And unfortunately it took Jillian Hall to get Billie Kay in the ring, and unfortunately Jillian Hall is in what had been a stacked Women’s Royal Rumble up until that point.
  • Love Victoria being in the match, and Santana Garret makes me wonder who had to pull out to give her a spot. Victoria hitting the Widow’s Peak on Peyton Royce is great, too. Also love Jerry Lawler being shocked about Rhea Ripley being in the Rumble.
  • Could Shayna Baszler break her own record. The lack of attention being paid to Bayley and Bianca Belair makes me wonder if they’ll be two of the first three, and the final two. And then we have Torrie Wilson in at #17, because Trish Stratus couldn’t travel. Charlotte Flair with double gear tonight, too. Top notch.
  • Poor, poor Dana Brooke. But Lacey Evans wearing Charlotte Flair’s robe is brilliant. And there goes Bayley. So much for that pick! Nikki Cross could be an amazing winner, if we had fans. ALICIA FOX WINS THE 24/7 CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE WOMEN’S ROYAL RUMBLE!
  • And then she lost it.
  • I really hope Raquel Gonzalez joins Dakota Kai in this Rumble.
  • HOLY SHIT that Dakota Kai bump!
  • WWE should be ashamed of themselves for their treatment of Mandy Rose tonight 🙂
  • Bianca Belair and Naomi repeating the spot they went to too early.
  • Not letting Alexa Bliss transform is really smart booking.
  • Lana’s here. TABLE TIME!
  • One of the most believable wrestlers on the roster, Shayna Baszler, just engaged in one of the least believable exchanges ever with Nia Jax. I blame Nia.
  • Lana eliminating Nia Jax makes PERFECT sense.
  • Can we have Nia and Shayna eliminate everyone, and we have to enact the “no winner” rules?
  • Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, and Rhea Ripley being the final three is a fantastic choice, and I would love to see it come down to Belair and Ripley–the future is now.
  • Really liked the psychology of Bianca and Rhea fighting near, and trying to avoid the ropes. Good shit.

Overall this was a good Royal Rumble, it dragged on at points, not as good as either of the last two, but it’s hard to make that comparison in front of no crowd. Doesn’t take away from Bianca Belair’s accomplishment. No Ronda Rousey, no Becky Lynch, and a great moment for Bianca Belair–true emotion at the end. The match wasn’t at that level, but that promo was *****.

Bad Bunny promo with The Miz and John Morrison

I just put it here for the simple fact that John Morrison stole the entire segment with one line. “He said it.”

Last Man Standing Match for the Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Kevin Owens

Seeing the introductions for this match puts something into perspective for me. We had the WWE Championship, SmackDown Women’s Championship, and Universal Championship all defended in our only non-Rumble matches tonight. I know we needed Asuka for the Women’s Tag Team Championship match on the Kickoff, and she wasn’t pinned, but had she defended during the main show, it would have done wonders for the perception of both women’s championships.

Now, I know Roman Reigns hit Kevin Owens with a golf cart, and Matt Hardy did it to Sammy Guevara. But keep this in mind: Roman and Kevin did it better, and Matt Hardy just stole the spot from WrestleMania 17.

Kevin Owens hitting the Swanton off of the forklift, and it (legit) looked really safe. I also loved Owens rolling off of the staging to his feet to break the count. Roman Reigns taking out the official because he was handcuffed and couldn’t physically stand was outstanding. Of course Reigns standing while Heyman was taking his Jack Swagger sweet time to unlock the handcuffs kinda ruined it.

Guillotine Choke and it’s all over, #LOLROMANWINS. But that was a DAMN GOOD MATCH.

I’ve seen criticism that it was long and the finish ruined it, but I loved it.

Men’s Royal Rumble Match

Stream of consciousness time again!

  • While Edge and Randy Orton fighting right away takes away from the ring introductions, I was find with it. LFG!
  • Edge vs. Orton could be a great story that is intertwined in the entire Rumble, with them being the final two. Unless The Fiend gets involved.
  • Mustafa Ali and Sami Zayn actually have a lot in common right now.
  • Dolph Ziggler enters his 14th Royal Rumble, eh? Love the Bayley pontyail, too.
  • Randy Orton being taken out via injury would be a great story to make the eventual winner have to defend against him.
  • Carlito looks fantastic–I know he probably doesn’t want it, but he could have another run.
  • Sadly, Tye Dillinger didn’t enter at #10, yet again.
  • Interesting that Damian Priest was introduced as “from NXT!”
  • The Bad Bunny spot makes total sense, especially with Damian Priest. Well done, WWE. Well done.
  • And he looks really old.
  • Damian Priest eliminating Kane was bad ass. He’s having a great showing. Imagine if he won?
  • On Twitter I got #22, and I’d love it if Bobby Lashley won.
  • I didn’t win.
  • Great seeing Christian in this match, and Edge sold it brilliantly.
  • AJ in at #25, and I would love to see him get this win. He won’t, but I’d love it. Omos could get involved, too.
  • Michael Cole doing a hell of a job getting that mid-match beer promo in!
  • So long Big E! He wasn’t going to win, and had a good showing.
  • Messiah Seth Rollins is back!
  • John Cena at #30? Nevermind, we still need Braun.
  • And there goes Daniel Bryan, so much for that prediction!
  • Nice callback to how Rollins eliminated Braun in 2019.
  • Was waiting for Randy to come back, but the fake-out finish was still well done. Edge wins.

A highly entertaining Rumble, with some good surprises (Carlito, Kane, Christian) and some not so good (Hurricane). Love that Seth Rollins is back, and hopefully Damian Priest can make a main roster impact if indeed he’s headed there.

But I mean it. Edge vs. Roman Reigns is the WrestleMania main event you need to run with! Then you can do Randy Orton vs. The Fiend, and Drew McIntyre can defend in a multi man with Sheamus, Keith Lee, and AJ Styles. POOF–WrestleMania!

Greg DeMarco’s 2023 WWE SummerSlam Review

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.



Cody Lesnar SummerSlam

The biggest party of the summer comes to Detroit, when WWE SummerSlam 2023 delivers an action packed event that easily exceeds expectations.

WWE presents SummerSlam 2023 live from ford field in Detroit in front of over 59k fans–who provided an electric atmosphere. Overall the card featured either matches, many of them delivering at or above expectations.

Read on for my thoughts, and even some ratings!

How I am rating segments:

I am using “The Line of DeMarco-cation,” which is for entertainment. the line is if I was entertained. You can have three main results:

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation

If necessary, i reserve the right to go WAY ABOVE or WAY BELOW. Significant segments can be rated. individual and overall ratings are totally subjective.

It’s simple: ENTERTAIN ME!

Logan Paul vs. Ricochet

  • Welcome to the biggest match of Ricochet’s career.
  • Samantha Irvin’s outfit matches Logan Paul, not Ricochet — SWERVE, BRO!
  • Ricochet is a star, and I love seeing him treated like one.
  • Rocket Mortgage is donating $5k for every move off the top rope? This match alone might accumulate half a million.
  • I know Logan Paul needs to catch a private jet to Dallas and that’s why this is on first, but this is the perfect opener.
  • If you didn’t know who Logan Paul was, you’d think he was just another member of the roster–and that’s the biggest compliment you can give to him. He’s a damn good heel, too.
  • Paul using Braun Strowman’s powerslam–will we get Logan vs Braun?
  • This might be the best match either have had in a LONG time.
  • Logan Paul just hit a Buckshot Lariat over the top rope and to the floor. Sorry Hangman.
  • I love that refs continue to have names – like former Greg DeMarco Show guest Eddie Orengo (as El Bandido Jr).
  • I’d love to know Ricochet’s powerlifting numbers. Dude is deceptively strong.
  • Logan Paul flew two-thirds of the way across the ring on the Springboard Froggy Splash
  • This match is spotty–yes–but watch and learn Young Bucks. They are strung together by psychology and it all makes sense,
  • LOVE that finish. Logan Paul wins (as expected), but Ricochet is protected.
  • Think about that – RICOCHET IS PROTECTED.
  • Hell of a match.

Winner: Logan Paul (pinfall brass knucks shot)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

  • That video package–amazing. It likely telegraphed Cody’s win, but I don’t think many expect Cody to lose.
  • I love when people question Brock’s presence. Did you hear that pop?
  • Cody got a hell of a pop, too.
  • You can tell how much Brock Lesnar respects Cody Rhodes, as he opens up the arsenal for him.
  • I love that Brock simply stands center ring as the ref counts Cody out. Brock wants to win–doesn’t care how. That’s a little detail that shows how brilliant of a character Brock Lesnar is.
  • This is the fifth time Brock has gone for the count-out–and I love the psychology.
  • Now Brock does care how he wins–he wants to break Cody’s will.
  • Wait, is this Cody Rhodes’ mystery twin brother Cory Rhodes?
  • That top rope Cody Cutter was fantastic.
  • Not sure when Brock’s shorts got ripped, but it adds to this fight.
  • That’s what this is, a fight. And that is Brock Lesnar at his finest.
  • It might have been a happy accident, but Cody’s hand bouncing off the bottom rope before he finally grabs it to break the Kimura is another amazing little thing.
  • Brock is so slow and methodical, but snatches people up for the F5 in a flash. So good.
  • Cody Rhodes wins, after THREE Cross Rhodes. Good shit.
  • Interesting that the show of respect from Brock to Cody is considered Cody’s arrival.
  • Or maybe it’s just the arrival of “The American Nightmare.”
  • I will be very interested–as will all of you–to see what’s next for both men.

Winner: Cody Rhodes (pinfall, three Cross Rhodes)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

NOTE: Very interesting that Roman Reigns was featured in the PayBack promo, as well as Logan Paul. I wouldn’t expect either to be on that card.

Slim Jim SummerSlam Battle Royal

  • I have to admit, it just feels right to have Slim Jim back in my wrestling.
  • This better be good since it cost us Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus.
  • I hope Sheamus got a full entrance for the crowd.
  • Oh look, Omos still works here!
  • Chad Gable is so damn good.
  • Austin Theory is in this match? And didn’t get an entrance?
  • At WrestleMania 30, Big E was in the Andre The Royal Giant Memorial Battle Rumble, didn’t get an entrance, and didn’t even get to carry his Intercontinental Champion. And I don’t even think his elimination was mentioned by commentary (I’d have to go back and check).
  • Santos Escobar eliminating Austin Theory at least makes sense.
  • LA Knight barely breathes and the crowd gets ELECTRIC.
  • I haven’t made as many bullet points because this has actually been a really good battle royal!
  • I’d love to know who the agent was–fantastically done.

Winner: LA Knight (last eliminates Sheamus)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

MMA Rules Match – Ronda Rousey vs. Shayna Baszler

  • Some of the shots during the entrance make me want WWE to get rid of stages altogether, and stick with this type of entrance.
  • Also, it’s a reminder that I hate major wrestling events in daylight.
  • This being an MMA Rules Match seems to be a missed opportunity at having a special guest referee.
  • The fans DO NOT CARE About this match, and I see why.
  • I am all for Ronda being able to go out how she wants to go out, and the talent pushing their own idea forward. But sometimes, you gotta say no.
  • Some matches also play much better in an arena instead of a stadium (Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair from WrestleMania comes to mind). This is one of those matches.
  • Whenever NXT had an “unsanctioned match,” the ref wore all black. That’s what we should have done here.
  • Now we have doctors checking on Shayna? Really? I know we want to put over how tough she is, but…..
  • The crowd pops out of relief when it’s over.
  • Do this on Raw, not here. Give Becky and Trish this spot.

Winner: Shayna Baszler (technical submission, Kirifuda Clutch)

BELOW The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

Intercontinental Championship: Drew McIntyre vs. GUNTHER (c) 

  • My Peacock membership doesn’t let me see the video package here, and I am fine with that–it’s been a while since I’ve seen that AFLAC Duck, though.
  • Ludwig Kaiser must love doing the entrance, but honestly the act might be getting stale?
  • Corey Graves very poetic in pointing out that “records are meant to be broken.” That’s one of the core values of WWE at this point.
  • It does appear GUNTHER will be going it alone tonight as Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci are headed to the back. Let’s see if they stay there.
  • Interesting placement for this match, right after the ill-received MMA Rules Match.
  • Didn’t the internet tell us Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor was going on fourth?
  • Btw, this match is brought to you by Rocket Mortgage. Money talks, BAYBAY!
  • GUNTHER truly lives the “Ring General” gimmick.
  • As the match progresses, I honestly can’t see Drew winning here.
  • The simplicity of the finishing sequence really adds to GUNTHER: top rope slap fest, McIntyre crotched on the ropes, splash, lariat, powerbomb. Nothing fancy–trademark GUNTHER.

Winner, #ANDSTILL the Intercontinental Champion: GUNTHER (pinfall, powerbomb)

ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

World Heavyweight Championship: Finn Balor vs. Seth “Freakin'” Rollins (c) 

  • I presume we will get a bunch of Judgment Day shenanigans here, but I really needed Seth to go on last to further establish his championship. Instead, we are smack in the middle of the event (according to the Peacock slider, anyways)
  • Seth Rollins’ entrance + 58k people = a beautiful sight
  • The worst thing about this, to me, will be when Balor and Rollins are partners after Balor turns babyface.
  • Love Rollins tossing the vest at Balor.
  • Love the more unique start to the match.
  • Interesting that Rollins, with a win, moves to 5th all time for SummerSlam wins? I had no clue! Mr. SummerSlam anyone?
  • We keep naming refs, and I love it,
  • If you want an “inside look” at a match, start paying really close attention for a few minutes starting with the triplicate of dives from Seth Rollins. You’ll see a few things that the cameras picked up.
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE the Buckle Bomb into the barrier from Balor to Rollins. Should have known they’d do that, but it never crossed my mind. Brilliant.
  • Decent amount of overlap in the offense of this match and the one prior–in hindsight, they may have wanted to put GUNTHER/McIntyre on before Rousey/Baszler.
  • Fans boo’d the crap out of Damian Priest when he came down–but popped like hell for Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley.
  • I really enjoyed the story told with the Judgment Day. When Priest called for the briefcase to be used, it would have worked. When Balor called for it, it wasn’t going to work, and Damian Priest knew it. But he let Finn Balor sink himself anyway. That will definitely play again later when they fully implode.

Winner AND STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Seth Freakin’ Rollins (pinfall, Stomp on the Money In The Bank Briefcase)

WAY ABOVE The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

WWE Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka (c) Bianca Belair

  • Very odd having Asuka enter second.
  • Charlotte Flair with the ode to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 (IYKYK)
  • Did I miss the C4 ad read? I saw that Bianca Belair entered with some, which made me thing THAT was why she came in last, and now the C4 branding is around the ring, but no real mention? Or did I miss it? Was it only for Peacock Premium subscribers?
  • Very choppy match so far–and Charlotte has to basically stop the match to have Jessika Carr fix her outfit, leaving Belair and Asuka in the corner waiting until Asuka realized what was happening and tried to cover. The Double Natural Selection that followed was quite clunky.
  • Bianca nowhere near Charlotte Flair when the moonsault hit–is Bianca really that good? I seem to ask myself this during every big time Bianca match, dating back to WrestleMania 37 when I felt like Sasha Banks had to carry her.
  • I find myself wanting to fast forward to the finish, here. I’m not, but I kinda want to.
  • ANOTHER REF NAMED! Thank you, Michael Cole.
  • If IYO SKY cashes in here (which is easy to expect), I really hope it’s not right after Charlotte wins, getting her to #15. Granted, she could cash in DURING the match and make it a 4-way. But of everyone, I think Charlotte needs to eat the pin tonight.
  • We have now had medical personnel tending to one of the participants in the middle of each women’s match tonight–first Shayna Baszler, now Bianca Belair. Seems like a misstep on someone’s part.
  • Bianca with the heroic comeback, and a beautiful 450 Splash on Charlotte during the Figure Eight.
  • Charlotte gets misted but Bianca gets the pin???
  • Makes sense if we do the cash in here. as Bianca is hurt.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: Bianca Belair (pinfall, small package)

  • Aaaaaaaand here comes IYO SKY.
  • I love Corey Graves telling Bianca to get the hell out of dodge.
  • IYO and Bayley take out everyone, and she is indeed cashing in.
  • Over The Moonsault, new champion, and the crowd goes nuts. Women’s Money In The Bank briefcase is still undefeated.
  • Nice World Of Stardom reference by Michael Cole, too.

Winner, AND NEW WWE Women’s Champion: IYO SKY (CMITB cash-in, pinfall, Over The Moonsault)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

There were some rough spots, but the cash in saved it for me.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match: Jey Uso vs. Roman Reigns (c) with Paul Heyman

  • I am timing this from the second Jey Uso’s theme hits through the end.
  • Man, Mike Rome is on one, and I am not sure if that’s a good thing. He doesn’t sound as fantastic as he usually does.
  • 12:34 from Jey’s music hitting to the bell ringing.
  • Roman is so slow and methodical, I don’t know if he realized Jey was going to dive so soon. Jey connected with Roman’s back, but that could have been really really bad.
  • I know this is Tribal Combat, but given the use of stairs earlier tonight, we might as well consider the stairs legal.
  • You know it’s an important match when Roman Reigns hits The Drive By, as he did on Jey Uso.
  • Table, Kendo Stick, and more early.
  • Jey clotheslining Roman over the top rope (with the Kendo Stick) and hitting the dive makes me think Jey got slightly lost earlier when he did the dive to a kneeling Roman’s back.
  • That was a MASSIVE powerbomb onto the chairs!
  • 35 minutes in (remember, since the start of Jey’s entrance, so 23 minutes into the match) and this is definitely just a touch slow. The story is amazing, so that’s my only complaint so far.
  • I have to wonder if Roman knew he was bleeding when he hopped the barricade to go into the crowd.
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaand here’s Solo Sikoa. That should surprise no one. We gotta get the whole family involved, right? At least the whole Bloodline.
  • Solo declining to help Roman up might be starting Solo’s arc in the story, but it wasn’t apparent enough and commentary had to fill in the blanks.
  • 50:22 since Jey’s entrance is the point where Jimmy shows up (pulling Jey out of the ring).
  • Jimmy hits the Superkick and leaves.
  • Spear through the table that was set-up about a week ago and Roman Reigns pins Jey Uso at 52:09 (from th estart of Jey’s entrance).

Winner AND STILL Undisputed WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns (pinfall, spear through the table)

AT The Line Of DeMarco-cation.

“At” might surprise you, but this was WAY too slow. Bell-to-bell it was roughly 40 minutes, and that was about 10 minutes too long. But the story is worth it in the end.

WWE SummerSlam 2023

Total Matches: 8

  • ABOVE the Line of DeMarco-cation – 4 matches (3 WAY ABOVE)
  • AT the Line of DeMarco-cation – 3 matches
  • BELOW the Line of DeMarco-cation – 1 match

One “bad” match and seven “good ones, four of those I’d call “great.” Three of the great ones I labeled as “WAY ABOVE” the line, which easily makes up for one match that was lacking. Hell, when even the Battle Royal is good, you know you watched a damn good show.

Overall Rating for WWE SummerSlam 2023: 9/10

King’s WrestleMania Rewind: Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka from WrestleMania 34

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!



WWE WrestleMania 34 Charlotte Flair Asuka

Chris king is back with one of the most underrated matches in WrestleMania history–Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka!

We look back at Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka at WWE WrestleMania 34. ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ put her unprecedented and historic undefeated streak of 914 days on the line against ‘The Queen’s’ SmackDown Women’s Championship.

For years, this was considered a dream match while Asuka dominated the roster in NXT, while Flair won numerous championships on the main roster on both Raw and SmackDown. The Empress made her long-awaited debut on the September 11th episode of Raw and began to tear through the competition.

Asuka outlasted all twenty-nine other women in the historic first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match to challenge for the title of her choosing. At Fastlane, she made her choice.

The WWE Universe was so excited for this match myself included. Both superstars delivered a fantastic performance on the Grandest Stage of Them All executing counter after counter. Asuka showed off some nasty-looking kicks to her opponent, and Flair hit a thunderous Spanish Fly off the top rope. Flair was seconds away from defeat at the hands of The Empress but she locked in Figure Eight and Asuka was forced to tap out.

I can’t even begin to explain how shocked I was at this outcome, as nearly everyone expected The Empress to continue her undefeated streak and walk away with the women’s title. This controversial decision was the downfall of Asuka’s momentum. She would ultimately win the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the 2018 TLC pay-per-view in the triple-threat ladder match.

Fast forward to this year when Asuka has recently returned with her Japanese-inspired persona Kana. Kana is dangerous and ruthless and is heading into a championship with Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39. The Empress has regained all her momentum and is highly favored to walk away with the Raw Women’s Championship. Let’s hope that Asuka and Belair can tear the house down and deliver an A+ grade match both women are fully capable of.
