Bianca Belair vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch
(Uncooked Girls’s Championship)
Bianca Belair wins by pin.
Mat: If Hell in a Cell have been the Met Gala, then Becky Lynch simply stole the present. Facet observe: I do know nothing concerning the Met Gala. Folks put on fancy garments there, proper? I feel that is what it’s. I am very enthusiastic about this match as a result of these are my three favourite girls in WWE in the mean time, and I might have seen it in individual, however I did not wish to drive to Rosemont, sorry, “Chicago.”
This can be a nice method to kick issues off proper now, and a lot in order that I am crying–that’s in all probability as a result of the poke bowl I ordered is spicy as hell. Regardless, the prepare is transferring on this one between spots and it is extremely fluid. There’s nice showcasing for every individual within the match–especially Asuka, which makes me so pleased.
What this match did exceptionally effectively was it by no means made any of those three girls weak. Whereas Belair retaining made probably the most sense, it felt like anybody might have taken dwelling the title. I kinda want this went to Asuka–even if I am an enormous Lynch supporter–but I am proud of the result and the end. This one was a number of enjoyable.
Chris: It is humorous, I used to be actually simply telling somebody that Becky Lynch’s gimmick proper now’s “Met Gala On a regular basis.” That individual wasn’t Mat, however I am glad we’re on the identical wavelength. Anyway, I admire the desperation Becky Lynch acts with as of late. She’s cocky, however she’s dying to have her title again and is keen to battle soiled to make it occur. In the meantime, Bianca Belair continues to seem as one of many absolute strongest girls within the business–and he or she is. However she’s not been proven to be a “weak” champion for any purpose.
Then there’s Asuka. I like Asuka and am glad she’s again. The gang loves her, her offense is at all times enjoyable to observe. However at no level within the construct to this did I ever view her as a risk for getting the win. She was merely by no means positioned in such a approach that made her look like a menace to Belair. Maybe, it might have been finest in the event that they let Asuka and Becky Lynch be a gradual burn feud, protecting them each busy whereas Bianca went toe-to-toe with different girls on the roaster earlier than this triply menace occurred at a much bigger present.
Anyway, that is all of the story main to this point. This match was a blast, even when Asuka largely felt like she was within the “I am additionally right here” function, whereas the match targeted on Becky and Bianca. Even nonetheless, all three delivered very thrilling moments. Truthfully, the double ankle lock spot was in all probability my private spotlight.
Bianca gained, which wasn’t actually in query. What bums me out about this, although, is that Asuka feels lower than in the case of each of those opponents. While you make Asuka really feel much less particular, you are doing one thing flawed.
Bobby Lashley vs. Omos & MVP
Lashley wins by submission.
Mat: MVP is just not a great rapper. Can I make the entire evaluation about MVP’s tune about Bobby Lashley? It’s totally unhealthy and feels very dated, like from 1987. However is it unhealthy to make me hate him? I can by no means hate you, MVP. You are a delight. Anyway, I am nonetheless sweating from my poke bowl. I received shrimp, tuna, and salmon. I am actually residing dangerously as a result of I dwell outdoors of Chicago and consuming seafood. There’s a number of meals in it too, so I am kinda stuffed after getting midway by. Good things although.
My poke bowl: 7.6/10
Now, as for this match… My favourite factor about this match is that there is a number of nothing occurring, and the group gave an enormous pop for Lashley spearing Omos as a result of “one thing occurred.” Anyway, the match occurred, and I received pumped about Lashley and Cedric Alexander possibly teaming up, however I would like this Omos/MVP nonsense over with. The match was high-quality. I actually loved seeing Lashley super-over with the group. I like him rather a lot, however I simply want he was in a greater story.
Chris: Please make it cease. Lashley deserves greater than this lengthy and pointless feud with Omos. Heck, MVP deserves extra too. Additionally I nonetheless do not get pleasure from Lashley’s new “pose like a trophy” entrance. Anyway, this can be a lot just like the match the 2 had final month, besides MVP was there to take the loss this day trip. I truthfully do not know what to say about this match, apart from Lashley continues to be tremendous standard with the group, which you like to see.
Ezekiel vs. Kevin Owens
Owens wins by pin.
Mat: Why do I like this silly, silly, silly storyline a lot? It is silly as a result of it is apparent Ezekiel is Elias’ brother. How laborious is that to grasp? The Chicago crowd additionally appreciates how foolish this all is. I do want Ezekiel was a bit extra outlined. He is principally Jimmy Wrestleman.
Jokes apart, what is the level of all of this? Owens beats up Ezekiel. Nothing occurs. It is a clear match that does nothing for both of those wrestlers, and the match itself was fairly bland. Positive, I laughed a bunch when Owens was screaming “Elias” in Ezekiel’s face, however this was a bizarre match.
Chris: Bear in mind when Kevin Owens was feuding with “Stone Chilly” Steve Austin actually two months in the past and foremost evented Wrestlemania Evening 1? I do too, what’s going on right here? The Ezekiel factor was humorous for a few weeks. How on Earth is it nonetheless occurring, although? Whereas we’re at it, why are the announcers not speaking about how Ezekiel is bleeding after taking a DDT? At the least Kevin Owens gained this match–and there was loads of aggressive offense throughout–but I am so prepared for this feud to be over.
Finn Bálor, AJ Types & Liv Morgan vs. The Judgment Day
Edge pins Bálor.
Mat: Chris loves Rhea Ripley. He is mentioned it rather a lot on the podcast. That is info you really have to know. I get pleasure from me some stables, even when they really feel a bit by-product. I additionally want Morgan/Balor/Types would give you a reputation for his or her group: The Fabulous Threebirds, Fullofit Membership, The Glad Campers. The identify decisions are infinite.
A six-man (six-person?) tag match has the potential to interrupt down right into a chaotic mess, at any level of time. But one way or the other, it by no means does. Liv Morgan is one hearth, and her spots with Ripley have been implausible, particularly when Morgan hit Ripley with that crucifix slam(?). It is one thing I’ve by no means seen carried out like that. It is nice to see somewhat one thing new in a match–when nearly every thing has been completed in wrestling at this level.
This was surprisingly a number of enjoyable and effectively completed. It remained thrilling all through the complete match The end was implausible, with Ripley offering a little bit of a distraction, and it actually elevates this group, as one other dominant secure in WWE.
Chris: I like Rhea Ripley. This can be a feud that is been occurring for months, but I proceed to be intrigued due to the way it’s advanced. The Judgment Day has grown its ranks, there is a bizarre pretend Bullet Membership of three that is shaped. It is all bonkers and enjoyable. I like that this faction has given Rhea and Damian Priest one thing to try this’s totally different and retains them within the highlight week after week. Additionally, Edge’s haircut works for him.
My favourite a part of this match was when Liv Morgan and Rhea received to combine it up as a result of, truthfully, they’re each extremely gifted and confirmed it. I am so glad Morgan is getting a little bit of the highlight within the feud, asn she’s woefully underused more often than not.
AJ Types is the second man tonight to get unintentionally bloody (and as soon as once more, the announcers ignored it). Nevertheless it goes to indicate how a lot these folks all threw at one another in what, so far, is the match of the night time. Judgment Day rightfully received the win and I am pleasantly shocked they did not introduce a fourth member but. This crew remains to be discovering its groove and including one other face to the combination is not essential simply but.
Madcap Moss vs. Glad Corbin
(No Holds Barred Match)
Moss wins by pin.
Mat: Actually excited to see Bart Gunn get his revenge on WWE after the Brawl for it All. Wait, that is not Bart Gunn? It is Madcap Moss? Glad Corbin wants a brand new identify change. I am pondering “Feeling Betrayed Corbin” or “Content material Corbin.” Simply toss an emotion at the start of his identify, and we’re all good, proper?
Bless this Chicago crowd for getting actually into a few of these matches that simply do not have the umph to make most individuals care. There have been some fairly cool, brutal moments in the course of the match I loved, however all-in-all, it actually did not do a lot for me. Madcap is not fascinating as a babyface. He is bland. To be sincere, he did not actually win me over as Corbin’s lackey both. Moss wins and hopefully, this places this rivalry to disgrace as a result of it’s not nice.
Chris: However why is he nonetheless known as Madcap Moss if he isn’t the court docket jester? Based on Merriam-Webster, madcap is outlined as “marked by capriciousness, recklessness, or foolishness.” As an alternative, should not he now be generally known as one thing like Offended Boy Moss?
The match was high-quality, however bizarre. Madcap Moss, as a personality, makes zero sense. He received the win, however what does that do for him? He nonetheless does not look like a reputable menace to anybody besides, possibly Glad Corbin. It actually was a “no holds barred” match and had the brutality to fulfill the hype, but it surely felt pointless.
Principle vs. Mustafa Ali
(United States Championship)
Principle wins by pin.
Mat: Enjoyable reality about Principle, Chris and I interviewed him throughout Wrestlemania weekend, and he was the nicest man on this planet. Additionally, he was a delight. That is a double menace. Then, there’s Mustafa Ali, an awesome wrestler who took all of the credit score for hacking Smackdown and beginning Retribution when it was clearly the person generally known as Smackdown Hacker–you ought to hearken to our wrestling podcast.
Each of those males are extraordinarily gifted, and this match was a showcase of a few of WWE’s high youthful expertise. The duo placed on a clinic, with some implausible strikes, like the center rope Spanish fly or the superb twister DDT. The problem with the match got here from the ending. We received a repeat of Principle hitting the highest rope high get Ali off of the turnbuckle. Principle received a win clear, but it surely was a bit jarring as a result of it occurred so shortly in what we perceived to be a sequence that was action-packed. All-in-all, it does not actually do a lot for both of those stars.
Chris: I like Principle, I actually do. However he feels a bit misplaced within the combine, which is odd provided that he is technically the highest title holder on Uncooked. In the meantime, I additionally love Mustafa Ali and assume he has what it takes to be a giant star, if given the chance. That is why I hoped that he’d get a win right here to showcase him a bit, plus give Principle one thing to do (discover a approach again into Vince McMahon’s favor after letting him down by shedding the match).
Regardless of the case, these are two wildly gifted wrestlers trying to have their breakout moments. I do not know that this match was it, although. It was a fairly good bout and WWE did its typical factor the place the hometown hero has to lose. Nonetheless, there was a possibility right here to go away this a match folks will discuss. As an alternative, the heel gained clear. So there’s not even a purpose for a rematch.
Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins
(Hell in a Cell Match)
Cody wins by pin.
Mat: Cody’s outfit makes him appear to be a circus ringmaster, and his pec appears screwed up. Oh man, that appears unhealthy. I’m not behind this. I don’t prefer it. I’m cringing at this. I severely do not wish to see him get harm any worse. The gang is not behind this both. That is the second WWE has gone too far. (Except for some purpose that we have all been worked–who is aware of anymore)
You may’t have a great match when the group is legitimately anxious about your real-life well-being. Pay attention, all of us love to observe good guys and unhealthy guys beat the hell out of one another, however we nonetheless care concerning the folks performing within the ring. And on no account can we really wish to see anybody “shoot harm.”
I am not ranking this.
Chris: Large ups to Seth Rollins rocking the Dusty dots. You like to see it. That mentioned, the damage to Cody completely sucks. The bruising right here is harsh and I truthfully cannot consider WWE would let him within the ring like that, except there’s some type of fast shenanigans deliberate.
Truthfully, that is uncomfortable to observe, seeing how unhealthy Cody’s pec is. Corey Graves retains speaking concerning the “hush” that fell over the group when Cody takes his jacket off and that is as a result of, truthfully, this looks as if a nasty concept. And clearly, Cody has been cleared by somebody on the medical employees. Nevertheless it does not change the truth that this is not entertaining–it’s regarding.
The additional bummer on high of all of that is clearly, Cody and Seth had some very cool stuff deliberate. It appears they’re nonetheless doing most of it, simply at a a lot slower tempo. And finally, the group did get into it. All it took was a desk to seem from below the ring. When doubtful, get the tables.
At a sure level, this become a bull rope match, which looks as if a nasty concept when you find yourself already one-handed. Rollins and Rhodes have been clearly eager to stay to their plans for the match in any respect prices, although.
In the end, Cody received the win–he went 3-0 over Rollins on this feud–and will now go away for a while to maintain his damage. And I am right here, unable to price this match as a result of it feels ghoulish to take action.
