Will Bobby Lashley replace Brock Lesnar as the unstoppable champion? His MMA record is good even if it wasn't UFC, and he's probably roided. He could be a Black Goldberg. I'd like to see a Braun Strowman face champion run. He could be a hillbilly Hulk Hogan. Black Goldberg and Hillbilly Hogan.
So the women's ppv (Evolution) is official for October. Since I'm bored here's my fantasy card for the show that would at least make it entertaining.
RAW women's championship: Ronda Rousey (C) vs Natalya - HEAR ME OUT. Ronda wins it ast SummerSlam, Nattie turns heel on her the next night when she thinks Ronda slights her. "I TRAINED YOU TO WRESTLE, I CAN BEAT YOU FOR THAT TITLE." Have Nattie beat everyone in September and October to make her a credible challenger.
Smackdown women's championship: Becky Lynch (C) vs Carmella - Honestly the SD roster is so shallow it's hard to find a better challenger for Becky (after she wins the title at SummerSlam) given one other match I have planned...
WrestleMania rematch: Charlotte vs Asuka - Guarantees a great match on the show.
NXT women's championship: Kairi Sane (C) vs Shayna Bazzler - Kairi wins the title at the next Takoever. Shayna challenges her for one last match in a LOSER LEAVES NXT match.
Mae Young Classic final: Toni Storm vs Io Shirai
Women's tag titles tournament final: Bayley and Sasha Banks vs The Iiconics - There's been a rumour there will be tag titles soon, defended on all four brands. Bayley proposes to Sasha after they win, they make out, wedding set for next year's Evolution ppv!
Battle of the Blondes: Alexa Bliss vs Trish Stratus - Alexa beats a legend to make herself a legend or whatever.
Absolution and the Riott Squad CLASH: Lita, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville vs Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgna - Ruby claims to be more "punk" than Lita and they start a feud, Riott Squad attack Lita three on one, Mandy and Sonya turn face and save her, Lita takes over from Paige (PAIGE HERE) as the leader of Absolution for one night only.
NXT vs the main roster 12 woman tag: Candice LeRae, Nikki Cross, Dakota Kai, Lacey Evans, Bianca Belair and Vanessa Bourne vs Nia Jax, Mickie James, Naomi, Ember Moon, Dana Brooke and Alicia Fox - Just trying to get everyone on the card, Ember could be a possible challenger to Becky insead if she jumps to SD but it seems unlikely they'll do that.
Battle of the Bellas - Nikki Bella vs Brie Bella - Let's face it they'll do some Total Bellas shit on the show so let's just have a five minute match where Brie wins in an upset then says "YES!" with Daniel Bryan (sitting in the front row) for a minute while Cena (also in the front row) looks disappointed with Nikki.
"Outside the ring, you're supposed to protect your brother. In this case, it's a situation where 75, 80, 90 percent of the wrestlers are protecting me and they're giving me another chance to move forward. There's just a few wrestlers that don't understand the bond and the brotherhood of wrestling. If someone makes a mistake, you need to forgive them and move on and try to let them prove themselves.” - Hulk Hogan
Hogan blaming black wrestlers for not "understanding the bond and brotherhood of wrestling" by not forgiving him for being a racist piece of shit.
Universal Championship: Roman Reigns finally got the best of Brock Lesnar.
This wasn't good. Started well but just fell apart in to a smash and grab win that was beyond anti-climactic considering the road we have been on to get here.
Braun telling them that he was going to wait until they beat eachother up to cash in (like every other MITB winner in history) because he's not a coward was just inexplicable.
Ronda Rousey became a WWE champion, defeating Alexa Bliss.
Bliss bumped a good few times! This was ok, Ronda always looks good in the ring but it wasn't as good as her other appearances. I just love the intensity though.
The Miz defeated Daniel Bryan.
I liked this. Is Bryan stays (which I think he will) then Miz and Bryan at WrestleMania is the goal. Miz picking up the win here makes that even more likely. I'm OK with this.
Shinsuke defeated Jeff Hardy for the U.S. Championship.
What the hell was the point of Orton coming down and then walking away again. Shinsuke's ring gear was on point, btw. Hardy almost killed himself doing a swanton on to the apron.
WWE Championship: Somoa Joe defeated AJ Styles via disqualification.
Was getting really good and they just decided to go with a fucking DQ. Needed 5 more minutes of hard hitting action but what we got was pretty good. Joe trolling AJ's family was good.
SmackDown Women's Champion: Charlotte Flair defeated Carmella and Becky Lynch.
Meh. Becky can't catch a break.
Braun Strowman defeated Kevin Owens.
Braun is the face, right? That first shoulder barge was scary af.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship: New Day defeated Bludgeon Brothers.
You don't expect these two to put on a bad match. They didn't.
For the most part the in ring action was really good but once again the show is let down by the insane amount of filler and promos that wear you down over SEVEN hours and the inexplicable booking that makes no sense whatsoever. Three years of build-up for that main event. LOL.
They had to get the title off Brock and I guess they thought having Roman just outright pin him would get huge boos, so they had Braun there to distract everyone by being Bruan then Roman just sneak in and get the pin and relatively few boos. So I guess it succeeded. Kind of. Who knows. Roman/Braun in a Hell in a Cell match (think that's the next ppv)?
AJ/Joe is obviously going to be a long feud...pretty stupid to start it at SummerSlam though! Why didn't they do this match last month and the blow off last night? It's not like Ruseve challenging AJ ended up helping pre-show Rusev.
Becky turning heel was fun.
Going to be funny watching the fans boo the shit out of Nikki Bella challenging Ronda.
