UnEventful Main Event

             The Revival sat in on commentary, Matt and Jeff Hardy had the edge early as they took turns attacking Karl Anderson, The Club gained control by slowing the pace down and beating up on Jeff. Momentum continued to shift back and forth The Hardy Boyz emerged the victors' thanks to a Swanton bomb. Near the announce desk, The Revival and The Hardys brawled Anderson and Gallows leaped into the fray. The announcers tried to play up how much these teams can't stand each other, but WWE hasn't done a great job showing us that to this point Their issues don't feel especially personal. So, this brawl didn't have the emotional oomph it would have if it was set up better WWE appears to be headed toward a multiple-team Tag Team Championship bout. Cesaro and Sheamus don't really have any rivals at this point There isn't a singular story to dive into And so, a crowded stage is the only plausible direction for SummerSlam.
                  Titus O'Neil accompanied a bandaged Akira Tozawa to the ring Cedric Alexander went on a tear to open the match, sending the heels reeling Rich Swann and Tozawa followed suit. An attack on Tozawa's shoulder turned the tide Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari attacked that weak point. The match's intensity picked up and Tozawa emerged from the high-flying chaos with the win courtesy of a senton. For a random six-man tag, this had solid energy WWE was able to showcase a few of its cruiserweights at once while advancing the story of Tozawa's climb to the top. As a bonus, WWE thankfully looks to have done away with the unnecessary purple ropes for the cruiserweight division.
                                The Miz hosted the Miz TV segment with Maryse at his side and Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel standing guard nearby. He welcomed Jordan after taking a shot at Pittsburgh Jordan struggled to get a word in as The Miz talked over him.The Miz offered to guide Jordan's career The former SmackDown tag champ rejected the proposition.The two squabbled as The Miz dug in, making his insults more personal as he went along.The Miz went on the attack Jordan got the best of the exchange before exiting. The Miz carried this segment Jordan is a work in progress and doesn't have great charisma at this point. 
                    Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins recalled their tag team match from last week The Lunatic Fringe, though, remained distrustful of his old ally.Rollins later ran into Cesaro and Sheamus backstage The champs bragged about their unity and success.The Kingslayer challenged the two European bruisers to a fight. Sheamus accepted. In the ring, Rollins' speed gave him the early advantage With the help of a distracting Cesaro, Sheamus floored the babyface soon after, though.The two men traded blows in a battle of power versus agility Rollins rolled up The Celtic Warrior for the three-count Cesaro and Sheamus then clobbered him in response Ambrose eventually rushed in to clash with the champs. 
    This was a smart way to use both men WWE managed to both advances the story of Rollins and Ambrose's tenuous alliance and show off the dominance of the tag team titleholders. Rollins and Ambrose generated some sympathy as the victims here, the champs garnered some heat for their dastardly act.
                         Bray Wyatt preached to the Pittsburgh crowd. He painted himself as an ever-present God as he talked about his issues with Finn Balor. He relished in his attack on Balor before the former NXT champ arrived. Balor kicked Wyatt into the stands, sending The Eater of Worlds into retreat. His promos have lost power over the years, his mystique fading. He needs a clearer focus. What's he after? Why is he hunting Balor? It's fine to fold in some esoteric element, but fans need something more concrete to sink their teeth into.Balor showed a touch of the supernatural He made a big impression with zero words and plenty of presence.This feud has major potential if WWE can harness all its elements, including Balor's demonic alter ego.
                                Video packages aired for Reigns, Strowman and Joe leading up to the match. In the ring, The Monster Among Men steamrolled both foes to kick things off. Reigns and Joe teamed up to chop the giant down before going after each other. The bruisers fought into the stands and outside the ring, No one was able to dominate for long Strowman had control of the bout but gave way to Joe, who eventually fell victim to Strowman. Reigns climbed out of the human wreckage to knock Strowman out of the ring and club Joe with a spear. Every beast looked great at some point The violence kept coming. The contest's energy never waned Reigns winning against all odds is familiar WWE booking, but the result is intriguing here. Is WWE going to have The Big Dog win here and at SummerSlam, or is this a sign that someone else is taking the title?
                               Bayley tried to out-quick Nia Jax but soon fell victim to the bruiser's power Jax flung her foe around the ring A comeback saw Bayley run into a wall. The babyface hurt her arm during the battle Jax showed no mercy as she continued her attack. A one-armed Bayley managed to fight off interference from Alexa Bliss and a charging Jax to get the win. WWE had the right idea here by having Bayley showing heart in a tough win The path to that result, though, was underwhelming. Jax and Bayley have had far better matches against each other This felt flat for the most part.
                  Enzo Amore accompanied Big Show to the ring Before the action began, he took some verbal shots at Big Cass. Big Show battered Big Cass before the match even started The two big men slugged it out. The Babe Ruth of Beatdowns focused on Big Show's leg, focusing all of his offense on the bad wheel. A boot to the face left The World's Largest Athlete out cold. Amore hopped into the ring, only to catch a beat down Big Show blasted Big Cass with a big right hand.It's not clear why WWE would save this for the main event slot. The Triple Threat match would have been a far more emphatic way to cap off the show. This was a mid card narrative shoved onto the marquee. There wasn't much added to this feud here This was essentially a repeat of their recent showdowns. Big Show is a logical stepping stone for Big Cass, but it's hard to get excited about the climax this is all marching toward.

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…

Will Asuka KEEP her Championship

After what transpired  On the May 3 NXT, Asuka interfered in a number one contender's battle royal by attacking Ember Moon, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot, the last three competitors, while stating that "no one was ready" for her, causing the match to be ruled a no contest. Afterward, it was announced that Asuka would next defend the NXT Women's Championship in a four-way match against Moon, Cross and Riot at NXT TakeOver: Chicago. Will this be the end of Asuka's reign? And if so who will be the next champion? Ember Moon? Ruby Riot? or will SAni†Y's own  Nikki Cross?  Personally, I think that Asuka will still be the champion. I think that when they bring her up to main she will simply vacate the championship and to me, that is the only way I see someone else taking the title from her. It's all about timing and the timing just isn't right they could have done more with Nikki Cross but they backed out and ended up doing nothing w…
