New Match Added to “Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017”


Let the smaller guys have a chance. We’re starting to finalize the card for Sunday’s “Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017” and that means adding some more matches to the middle of the show. In this case it’s a match from some people who don’t get to appear on the card that often and that’s a good thing.

As announced this week on “Monday Night Raw”, Rich Swann and Cedric Alexander will team up to face Jack Gallagher and Brian Kendrick on the pay per view. Gallagher and Kendrick have joined forced on “205 Live” with Gallagher agreeing with Kendrick’s view that he needs to be more serious. They’ve targeted Alexander and Swann is helping even the odds.

Here’s how a singles match between some participants went.

Opinion: I know the cruiserweights aren’t the most popular act in the world but it’s cool to see them get some extra pay per view time. They already have the Cruiserweight Title match with Enzo Amore challenging new champion Kalisto so putting another match on the card is quite the surprise.

Who do you think will win? Have you liked where “205 Live” has been going as of late? Let us know in the comments below.

New Name Added to “Tables Ladders and Chairs” Main Event


One more for the pile. The main event for this Sunday’s “Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017” was set last week with the reunited Shield facing the team of Miz, Braun Strowman, Cesaro and Sheamus. That’s quite the stacked odds, but as announced this week on “Monday Night Raw”, the advantage is about to be become even stronger.

This week on “Monday Night Raw”, Miz teased that a fifth man will be added to his team to make it a 5-3 advantage. At the end of the night, Miz finally revealed that the returning Kane would be the partner. This will be Kane’s first match on television since “Smackdown Live” on November 29, 2016. He hasn’t wrestled a match this year as he is running for Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.

Here’s some of the teasing of the mystery partner.

Opinion: Uh….well it kind of works. Kane is the kind of a person you can add to a match as a monster and everything should be fine. Above all else, he’s the guy who can take a fall here and not lose anything. Kane can come in and do a bunch of his power spots that we haven’t seen in a good while and everything will be fine.

Do you like Kane in the match? Who should have been in his spot instead? Let us know in the comments below.

“Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017” Kickoff Show Match Announced


See it again. We’re less than a week away from “Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017” and that means the card is starting to fill out a little bit. The main event has been set for a long time now but we don’t have a lot of the meat of the card. As of this evening though, we do have the Kickoff Show match set.

As announced this week on “Monday Night Raw”, Sasha Banks will be facing Alicia Fox before Sunday’s show begins. This is a rematch from this week’s “Monday Night Raw” where Banks defeated Fox with the Bank Statement. Fox attacked Banks later in the night to set up the rematch.

Here’s the first match.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: I’m not wild on having a rematch this fast. Why would I want to see these two fight again less than a week after Banks defeated Fox in a quick match? Banks belongs on the card but is there really no one better for her to fight? Actually, aside from Nia Jax which we’ve seen before, there really isn’t and that’s not good.

Who do you think will win this match? Will it be better than their first effort? Let us know in the comments below.

Cody and Roman Reigns Argue Over Drawing Power


He said, he said. One of the never ending debates in wrestling is over who is a draw and who isn’t. Sometimes you can make a pretty clear statement about who is responsible for a show doing well and sometimes it’s almost impossible to be certain. Two big names have been debating this over the weekend and one of them might surprised you.

At this weekend’s “Global Wars” events, Cody successful defended his Ring of Honor World Title. After the match, Cody was outside the arena and made some comments about his status as a draw. Cody claimed that by being part of the Bullet Club, he was the biggest draw in the business today. Here’s the promo:

We’re not done yet though as Roman Reigns responded to the comments on Twitter.

I don’t even need to click the link and watch it. If that house didn’t draw over 100K. He’s just talking silly. #WalkOverTalk https://t.co/azQyqDpHUN

— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) October 15, 2017

Opinion: I don’t think Cody meant what he said literally and it’s far from the first time another promotion suggested that they’re bigger than WWE. This is far from a major issue and Reigns is right about the “Wrestlemania XXXII” crowd blowing away everything Ring of Honor (or pretty much everyone else) has done. Granted Cody was on that card too, but that’s kind of missing the point.

Do you prefer Cody or Reigns? Will Cody ever be back in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.

Drew McIntyre on Returning to NXT, It Being a Top Brand, Lessons Learned


The Post and Courier interviewed Drew McIntyre where he spoke about returning to WWE and the lessons he learned while he was gone. He also talks about NXT being the number one show.

On the differences when he returned to WWE:

“The last time I had an opportunity to be in NXT was in its infant stages. I had been a part of Raw and Smackdown for a few years, so I really didn’t know anybody. This time around, after having been gone for around three years, it was a surprise at NXT Takeover: Orlando. Once I headed back to the locker room afterwards, I knew legitimately 80 percent of the locker room, as well as knowing everybody who works backstage with the camera crew, the producers, etc. I saw so many familiar faces … it felt like I had never been gone.”

On the lessons he learned while away from WWE:

“When you’re by yourself and not with WWE, you are your own business. And I was very successful in that business because of all the lessons I learned. I truly learned how to be a top brand myself and be what I needed to be. When the time was right and I wasn’t under contract anywhere, I spoke to Triple H on the phone. It was the right time to come home, and I was the right guy. I got the opportunity, and now I’ve got the ball and I’m going to run with it as far as I can.”

On NXT being the number one show:

“My job is to get NXT recognized as that third brand, not just as developmental. And since I’ve been back I’ve noticed the difference that people are starting to refer to it that way. It obviously doesn’t have the platform that Raw or Smackdown does, but I believe it’s the No. 1 show. We’re so competitive and passionate when it comes to our shows. I hope everyone’s keeping an eye on us. We are the No. 1 show for a reason. Everyone on the show has earned that spot. There are 150 people down at NXT. So if you’re on the show, wherever it may be, they’ve earned that spot and are giving a WrestleMania performance every time they’re in the ring.”

Take a listen to this special entrance for McIntyre at the last NXT: ‘TakeOver’ event. If you’re a fan of McIntyre in any capacity, we highly suggest it.

Video: Top Ten Superstar Falls


Hopefully they can get up. After last week’s crazy fall off the Cell that nearly broke Kevin Owens, it’s hard not to think about other falls that nearly took people out. There have been a lot of them in wrestling history in various promotions and I think you know where I’m going with this.

WWE has released a new Top Ten video of the best falls in wrestling history. These range across all three major American promotions and involve people falling off a lot of things. Note that these are falls and not dives, meaning the people who take the fall are being knocked or thrown off instead of jumping themselves. Here’s the list:

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: While #1 was the biggest given you could imagine, it was nice to see a bunch of these brought out of mothballs. There were some good picks on here, most of which were further proof of how insane wrestlers can be. Some of them are willing to take some very big risks and some of them are completely nuts.

What is your favorite fall on the list? Did WWE miss any? Let us know in the comments below.
