Wrestle Review: Crown Fool Submitted by Andy Sullivan on 11/02/2018 at 11:19 PM
I did not watch Crown Jewel. I knew that they'd be so tone deaf and give Brock Lesnar that Universal title. I said I wouldn't watch because I didn't want to see that again. Honestly, I don't even want to watch Raw Monday. I'm glad my Titans play Monday Night Football. I'll be watching that instead.
The other thing at Crown Jewel I just couldn't get into was the "best in the world" tournament. Why are they still taking shots at CM Punk? It's just so petty. And to top it off, they bypass the actual wrestlers in the tournament and give the win to.....Shane McMahon? That company is so tone-deaf to its fanbase that it's pathetic.
Survivor Series is always a Raw vs Smackdown thing now. After today, it seems we have two matches signed: Becky vs Ronda and Styles vs Lesnar-which is a rematch from Survivor Series last year. As you recall, Lesnar won last year. I'd like to see AJ pick up the win. Perhaps Braun distracts Brock and allows AJ to sneak a win. Of course, if Vince's golden boy loses at Survivor Series, he likely won't lose the title for a long time. In fact, I bet I know who he loses it to. When Roman comes back.....
What I really enjoyed was Evolution. Man, did it ever exceed expectations! Every match was pretty awesome. A few women we all wished(or I did, anyway) were there were AJ Lee and Gail Kim. Since I mentioned Gail, it seems that she posted some pretty interesting tweets blasting WWE after Crown Jewel. It sure seems as though the word racism is being thrown around a lot these days.
Impact Wrestling has been fairly solid. Despite moving the show to 10 pm eastern/9 pacific, maybe that won't be as bad as first thought. As was revealed in a twitter poll I did about it last week(because I'm a dork), it really doesn't matter what time it airs. Nobody watches anything live anymore. It's all recorded to watch later.
Triple H may have torn his pectoral muscle today. That sucks but it will fit into what I propose. I know that after Crown Jewel, Shawn pretty much gave the impression that was it. That was not it. He will have one more likely painful match. It'll probably be vs Kane or Undertaker at Survivor Series. I wish they wouldn't but.....
That's all for this week. Tune in next week when I talk about popular mechanics and the virtues of a good night's rest. I'm kidding, of course. We'll see what craziness happens in the world of wrestling next week.
