Tables, Ladders & Chairs (a.k.a. TLC), a PPV for which the main focus went around the long-time waited S.H.I.E.L.D. reunion, and the other matches… And suddenly, Roman Reigns (and Bray Wyatt by the way) became sick after a viral infection (apparently parotitis instead of meningitis as we were informed at first), so the whole reunion idea had to be scratched at least for now. But the big surprise was who would be the substitutes for Wyatt and Roman? Well, none others than AJ Styles, who was in South America by that time, and Kurt Angle!
Last week was the most recent RAW-exclusive PPV, No Mercy, and the hype of this one created different expectations on the fans: many of them didn’t expect a lot of it, according to what we just recently saw at SmackDown’s Battleground and SummerSlam, and the rest were waiting for a classic match between the big dog and John Cena, and a savage fight for the Universal championship between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman.
So, what did we get? Another disappointment? A historical night of wrestling?
No kidding, this was the name of a 2017 PPV… Another awesome idea of Vince’s “inner” child. But leaving aside all the dirty jokes (no, we won’t) this was a pretty great event! May be the best B-class PPV of 2017 so far! So, let’s take a look at it.
As most of you know, WWE hosts many live events around the world, events that do not get broadcasted on TV and that are mostly to get people all around the world to say “present” at WWE events, get to see their favorite superstars, and have a great time. During these events, wrestlers have more creative freedom, but championships, even though get normally contested, do not change hands. Last night, something rather different happened at the Madison Square Garden’s live event.
Last week we got to know that Seth Rollins was going to be at ESPN’s SportsCenter in order to make an announcement, we were all especulating about it having something to do with WWE 2K18, and we were not wrong, as it has now been officially announced that he is the face of 2018’s entry in the WWE 2K franchise.
The next RAW exclusive PPV is just a few nights away from us, I’m obviously talking about the most dangerous night of them all as Extreme Rules is coming, and I’m sure you’d like to know which matches will be happening and their regulations, so let’s take a look at what we’ll be seeing this Sunday night.
During tonight’s Monday Night RAW, things started to heat up for the upcoming RAW exclusive pay-per-view Extreme Rules as we got to know about a few matches we’ll be seeing during the event, let’s check some details about them below, keeping in mind that things might change before the official event card is published.
Ever since Wrestlemania 33’s mighty return of The Hardy Boyz to the WWE, fans have been wondering if we will ever get to see the BROKEN Hardy gimmick being used, and the WWE is certainly working on that.
Remember the time back in 2012 when we first saw Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose together as The SHIELD? Well, if you don’t I don’t know where you have been since they were an unbeatable force for about 2 years, annihilating everyone in their path. Well, anyways, we may see the trio together again since teasing has started coming from the team members.
