WWEekly: The Top Talking Points of RAW, SmackDown and NXT (6.10 – 6.12.19)

Published

Good news everyone, WWE TV was better than Super Showdown. To be honest had it not been, there would have been riots. They still weren’t the most interesting shows but they had their moments and there were some decent feel good moments for stars that deserve them. However, there is also copious amounts of Shane McMahon which is not a good thing at all. Right let’s get into this week’s talking points.

RAW

– Baron Corbin demands to pick a special guest referee after being screwed at Super Showdown. Rollins jokes he has no friends, which brings out Sami Zayn. More mocking ensues and Owens comes out to defend the honour of his friend. A match is set up for the main event that Owens wins via DQ after Zayn disqualifies Rollins. A brawl breaks out to end the show.

– A chaotic episode of Miz TV leads to a six-man tag match between The Miz, Braun Strowman and Ricochet and Samoa Joe, Cesaro and Bobby Lashley. Ricochet wins the match with a 630 Senton to Cesaro but it landed across the legs of Cesaro, which may have led to an injury.

– Lars Sullivan eliminates all three members of the Lucha House Party. This time he isn’t the victor by DQ.

– Alexa Bliss & Lacey Evans defeat Becky Lynch & Bayley via Women’s Right.

– Firefly Fun House once again proves to be the best segment of the show as Bray turns on Rambling Rabbit after he threatens to reveal the secrets of the Fun House. He is mashed with a hammer and turned into breakfast spread by a clown faced Wyatt.

– Shane McMahon wastes more of the WWE Universe’s and Drew McIntyre’s time by cutting a long-winded promo no one was interested in.

– The Revival defeats The Usos and Hawkins & Ryder via Uso Splash steal. The Revival are now RAW Tag Champions and there is a little more right with the world again.

– The Iconics defeat jobbers in rapid fashion. The competition is that meaningless that the commentators don’t even know which team member is which. Their names by the way were Lisa Lace and Aleyah Mia.

– R Truth is trapped in an elevator with a bunch of challengers. Luckily there is no ref so everyone bonds and becomes friends. Well until the elevator is opened and everyone dives on Truth. He escapes again because everyone is too busy fighting.

SmackDown

– Back to Miz TV again and this time it’s with the BEST IN THE WOOOOOOOORLD (in his own head and nowhere else) Shane McMahon. He winds Miz up to the point that he’s ready to fight. He beats Elias but fails to beat Drew and just to add insult to injury, Shane locks on the Triangle to make him tap out again.

– Sonya Deville defeats Carmella with a Running Knee in a pretty decent match. It’s always nice to be reminded that Deville can actually wrestle and wrestle really well.
– Heavy Machinery squash the Yolo County tag champs to win some lovely cardboard belts. Expect a unification match quite soon.

– Bayley defeats Nikki Cross via Elbow Drop in a match set up because of mean social media posts.

– R Truth is trapped in a travel case and sent to LA. A bumbling Jinder is now probably a murderer as a human would barely survive in a trunk for that long.

– The New Day’s reunion is in full force as Big E is back in action. They have a six-man tag match against Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler & Kevin Owens. New Day wins as Sami Zayn takes another loss from the Trouble in Paradise.

NXT

– Candice LeRae & Io Shirai vs The Horsewomen of MMA ends in no contest as the match breaks down and everyone fights everyone. The best parts of the match saw Shirai mimicking the arm breaker of Baszler. It should also be noted that Duke and Shafir have improved drastically since starting.

– KUSHIDA defeats Drew Gulak via Hoverboard. Excellent and intense submission match that saw both men show how tension building submissions are and just how good both men are at them. We get a show of respect after the match from a clearly frustrated Drew.

– Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan defeat Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly via Roll Up following a rampage from Forgotten Son’s Jaxson Ryder.

In Conclusion

I can’t really say a lot about this week. It had some high moments but such as Revival taking the tag titles and the KUSHIDA submission match but other than that it was a really safe week. I can’t blame the company from playing it safe since Super Showdown was a super sh*t show of dull, pointless matches and crushing sadness. That being said, they’re meant to be building up to Stomping Ground, a show that looks to be nothing but rematches. Hopefully, once we’re past this PPV hump, the quality will improve.
