SAni†Y Lays Out The Authors of Pain

      Sanity's Nikki Cross kicked off this week's show, screaming as she is prone to do, before Alexander Wolfe and Killian Dain joined her in the ring. The unstable faction called out NXT tag team champions The Authors of Pain.Akam and Rezar answered but were attacked from behind by the returning Eric Young, who zip-tied Rezar to the guardrail.Akam suffered a beatdown at the hands of the group while his tag team partner dragged part of the rail to the ring, only to beaten and pummeled by Young and the rest of Sanity. Sanity stood tall, sending a message loudly and clearly to the champions.
      After weeks of video packages, The Street Profits debuted Wednesday night, taking on The Metro Brothers.Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford drew a nice pop for their first appearance.Dawkins and Ford demonstrated their athleticism early in the short squash. The latter overcame a bit of offense by Chris and CJ and made the hot tag to Dawkins.The newcomers scored the win moments later, kicking off their NXT run in impressive and successful fashion.
       Just under two weeks until the NXT Championship is up for grabs in Brooklyn at TakeOver, current titleholder Bobby Roode shared the squared circle with No. 1 contender Drew McIntyre.As cocky and arrogant as ever, Roode admitted entitlement and said he does not need a second chance, like his opponent. He reiterated that NXT is his and his alone.McIntyre responded, vowing to win the title as any good babyface in this scenario would.Roderick Strong's music played, and he implored general manager William Regal to give him a match with Roode, not for the title, but for the honor of his family.Roode agreed to give Strong a match, but he'd have to go through McIntyre first. Finally, it was decided that if Strong can beat McIntyre next week, he will get a shot at Roode after the pay-per-view, but the title match at TakeOver remains the same either way.
       Last month, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch beat the ever-loving hell out of each other in a display of violence and toughness.Wednesday night, they met in a rematch Lorcan pulverized Burch's chest with a series of chops. The Brit responded with a nasty lariat that halted Lorcan in his tracks. The hits came harder and the pin attempts more dramatic as their physicality was maintained throughout.Late, Lorcan attempted a Boston Crab, but Burch countered into a pinning combination for the upset victory.
          The rivalry between No Way Jose and Andrade "Cien" Almas had steadily built in the weeks ahead of this week's show. Wednesday night, they settled their differences in singles competition.Almas was frustrated early on a few occasions, rolling to the arena floor to consult Zelina Vega.At one point, after being outwrestled and outclassed throughout the bout, Almas let his hair down in a symbol of seriousness the way Jerry Lawler would drop the strap of his singlet.OK, maybe things weren't that serious, but Almas certainly became more focused.A nasty kick put Jose down, and the running knees probably should have finished him. Vega, though, demanded Almas put his fun-loving rival down for the count. The hammerlock DDT finished Jose.After the match, Vega announced that if Johnny Gargano was looking for an opponent in Brooklyn, he had found one.

James Wins for Carmella and Maria Kanellis Returns

Money in the Bank was an interesting show as are all the products produced by WWE, the first match of the card not including the pre-show was the Women's Ladder match which started off with Tamina dominated in the early going, slamming ladders into everyone who tried to step into the ring. Natalya cleared the ring and had her fingertips on the briefcase before Charlotte yanked her off a ladder. Other participants collided into each other as momentum shifted from wrestler to wrestler. Lynch seemed to be closing in on the victory when James Ellsworth pushed her off a ladder. He unhooked the briefcase to give it to Carmella. Referees bickered over whether that should allow Carmella to win. Both Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan sent out tweets saying they’d address the situation on Smackdown this week. I think that throughout the match they could have used the dynamic of the Welcoming Committee but WWE chose not to what a missed opportunity they could have eve…

New Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss

At Payback, Bliss defeated Bayley to become the Raw Women's Champion. In doing this, she became the first woman to ever become Raw and Smackdown Women's Champion. Bayley defended the Raw Women's Championship against Alexa Bliss in her hometown of San Jose, California.  Bliss performed a Snap DDT on Bayley to win the title. Though her win is also due to Bayley being thrown into the steel post. This match is the best match of Alexa Bliss so far and I can't wait to see what she will do to the Raw Women's Division now that she is the champion. Many questions are running through my head now like who will she be facing next? who will she feud with next? will she retain when she faces Bayley again? many questions and now we have to sit and wait to see how she is booked and hopefully they are going to make her keep that championship for a while because it is rightfully deserved she is a hard worker. Alexa was going to win no doubt in my mind as soon as I knew it was in Bay…

Alexa Bliss or Charlotte ?

The question on my mind is who is going to be the first women to win a title for the other brand is it going to be Alexa Bliss or is it going to be The Queen Charlotte. Both Alexa and Charlotte where the top of their respective brand and now because of the Superstar Shakeup they are now on the other brand and as seen this week they are in contention for the Raw and Smackdown Women's Titles.Alexa Bliss looks to capture the Raw Women’s Championship by winning the number 1 contenders match. Also, Charlotte just pinned the Smackdown Women’s Champion which shows everybody that The Queen will be nothing more than dominating on Smackdown not that we expect anything less from Charlotte. I am leaning more against Alexa, I think that she will be the first Women to have held both Smackdown and Raw Women's titles and hopefully when she does it will be a long title reign. Charlotte, though she is the Queen I do think that they would give Naomi a longer run as champion and for her champions…
