WWE Survivor Series 2017

WWE Survivor Series 
2017



The troubling name-themed Pay Per View, Survivor Series, once WWE's greatest year-end Big 4 showcase once again trudged through murky waters.

Filled with filler matches, latent boredom and spot monkey moments akin to every other PPV showing this year, WWE continue to phone it in.

Lacking skill, style, challengers, contenders, champions and all round entertainers, WW still cannot fathom what is going wrong in their crazy world. They do not have time to live in any one else's and that is half the problem. Not in the loop and relying on fandom Independent luvvies already past their prime (who never scored big six months in their debuts) and filled with nostalgia and the over incessantly toxic ego of one Triple H, Survivor Series is once again doomed to oblivion.

6 Man
Tag Team
The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) Vs The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods)

The starting event of the rehashed The Shield trio, thingy-ma-jiggy, took on their greatest challengers. The New Day. Don't all laugh at once. WWE thought it smart to place this early, and rightly so. Triple H wanted to be the main event once more and the filler show was bound to collapse.

Fan luvvies of the Indy era (real fans have left) gave "a big pop" which translates to a handful of cheers from fickle fans desperate not to admit how bad anything sucks, creatively. The New Day never stood a chance. Xavier Woods' third wheel, sex pest, backstage humping of Paige is his only calling card, and that's not something to be proud of. Kofi Kingston was the main star of the three but Big E was always given priority as the towering block Vince McMahon prefers on show.

As for the trio of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, aka The Flounderers with nothing going for them but have been spared release because WWE have nothing for themselves to rely upon, The Shield pummelled The New Day in a cheap, rushed and rather lukewarm spot match filled with gimmicks to get cheap fans roaring. Slim pickings.

One word description? 

Meh.


10 Man
Tag Team
Alicia Fox (Team Captain), Nia Jax, Asuka, Sasha Banks, and Bayley Vs Becky Lynch (Team Captain), Carmella, Tamina Snuka, Naomi, and Natalya

How do we keep the divas, sorry 'Women's' revolution (which Max Waltham made and Stephanie and Triple H take credit for, yet solely destroyed with dolly birds) relevant?

A 'traditional' (which means we can't be bothered to think up something new and creative so just chuck all the females out there in one mish mash) match up to fill time.

As if anyone couldn't fathom the odd one out, Asuka, new, fresh and highly raised in profile from last month's match with recently released talent Emma, which WWE let go over bitterness that she stated writers weren't giving her any opportunities (which they weren't) WWE needed to protect Asuka in a now fragile WWE environment. 

A skilled star among a rabble of jobbers, botchers and hanger-ons that can't deliver anything more for this failed project of Triple H's moronic ego fest hatred. Blatant communication of details in the match, falling about everywhere and a right bloody mess of it all, this was the typical diva match shambles WWE has never moved on from. 

It came down to Asuka against recently dethroned Smackdown Women's champions Natalya, who tapped out so Asuka could be the 'sole survivor' which WWE feel gives her some credibility. It does not. She has no being or essence and only Emma made her relevant. WWE have cost Asuka big time with random call ups and no opportunities. Asuka was only on WWE's radar three years ago when Max Waltham complimented her veteran talents to the profession. WWE may just scupper it for her.


It was a few pity cheers that the favourite won among the vest of a bad bunch, but there was no real feeling at all involved.


The Miz Vs Baron Corbin

Another champion verses champion battle which, like the PPV, made zero sense in what become an unexplained brand battle supremacy that had absolutely no prize at all in the end results. Another thrown together pity card. Don't WWE fans deserve better? The real paying fans left when WWE short changed them over the past 2 and a half years. The time when Triple H and his Indy luvvies of ignorant from NXT took favouritism lunacy than professional skill. The future is bright.

WWE decided to let Baron Corbin win over The Miz to establish him as a growing star who has not developed in two years on the main roster of Smackdown. WWE want to avoid the in-house bullying against him, as well as being short on names, to seem like it cares.

It was empty, pitiful and had no skill, filled with pedestrian exchanges and botched fluidity.


In reality, The Miz recently announced he's having a baby with real life wife Maryse, which saw The Miz drop the Intercontinental Championship on the post Survivor Series Raw, to, wait for it... Roman Reigns. The IC curse lives on. 


Tag Team
The Uso's Vs Sheamus and Cesaro

The Uso's dropped Sheamus and the ever talented, one man show that is Cesaro. Apart from his skill and working with very talented competition in The Uso's this match was great in technique, but WWE booked it as filler. When WWE don't respect their talent, even the best on the show become forgettable. No one remembers it, which is a shame as even Sheamus has been re-invigorated slightly in his improving in-ring skills. What was the prize? Nothing.


Alexa Bliss Vs Charlotte Flair

A battle of the Women's champions. What a laugh. Alexa 'best of a bad bunch' Bliss took on what was to be Natalya, dropped at the eleventh hour for Charlotte 'WWE's overhyped failure favourite living off family heritage' Flair. The pair tried their best but it was still too meek, green, clumsy and rushed. In efforts to stand out Charlotte often ruins herself by being too forceful, clumsy and desperate to prove to fans she can go. She needs to learn the inner workings better and she might just be able to improve. I'm not her tutor. 

As for Bliss, her action was weak, covering for WWE fave Charlotte and the division once more suffered as a result of both on show. WWE would have had a better match if Natalya was there, but WWE still can't get it in their head as to what works, and runs back into comfortability angles. It's all been seen far too often and nothing is fresh. WWE is as stale as a rotten cucumber.

Charlotte Flair defeated Alexa Bliss with ease, which made her entire reign over however many months up to this point wasted viewing for all WWE fans hoping for more meaningful 'stuff'.

It was short, laboured and messy.


Brock Lesnar  w/ Paul Heyman Vs AJ Styles 

Go on, kiss him again.
You know you want to...
(Well, maybe not him).
Battle of the champions now. (Again). This time it's the proper people, the guys. Milk carton poster boy Brock Lesnar took on recently crowned WWE Champion (like Charlotte/Natalya) AJ Styles, who dropped Jinder 'the terrorist themed, Indian market expansion cash in, jobber doped on steroids' Mahal.

He is NOT on 'roids.
Repeat, he is NOT on 'roids...
Even Vince knew Mahal would be no match for Lesnar, so instead he gave the main heavyweight title to a loserweight, sorry cruiserweight, action man figurine who jumps around with five moves like all cruisers who need a fly swatter.

Brock Lesnar predictably crushed AJ Styles with ease which has become a theme of crap matches that fans want to attune their anger of WWE into Max Waltham vessel Brock Lesnar as "The Beast" to silence and pummel the ever useless crap on show. Thing is, it's not working, even here, is it? Again it was boring fluff, silly moments and AJ doing daft nonsense that made WWE as much a laughing stock as Dixie Carter's then TNA. Triple H has gone down the same route, with disastrous consequences. 

Another misused talent lost
by WWE's narcissistic hate.
 
Last week WWE also released talented and often misused opportunity James Ellsworth. WWE are trimming its budget of what it thinks is expendable yet throws away its actual talent because it has no creative ideas and Triple H's lunatic overspending on indy ignorance luvvies that dont materialise. Many on the roster who don't deserve to be there and threatening WWE's future front and back are still employed. Fans have left. WWE are deluded. 


10 Man 
Tag Team
Kurt Angle (Team Captain), Triple H, Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, and Finn Balor Vs Shane McMahon (Team Captain), Randy Orton, Bobby Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, and John Cena


The Raw roster, at its finest.
Up last was the main event, which somehow contained missing for months egotist Triple H as the main attraction. Wow. Everyone plays second fiddle when Trips wants his obscene moment back in the spotlight to feel important. Can the man who has been destroying WWE's future with ignorance hires and piss poor business acumen really put his ego aside? The spot was originally announced to growing upstart, Jason Jordan.

Vanilla Series.
Since his three years of NXT 'headliners' and delusional claptrap endorsements of them, WWE, under Triple H, has lost scores of ratings, credibility, investors, stock and actual stardom. Don't be fooled by WWE topping up their own stock to save face. Even ratings bribes to tabulators and empty stands of house show embarrassment wont patch that massive sinkhole. Be careful what you wish for. Triple H always has to play games. Ones that never benefit WWE, advertisers, investors or the business, which is highly in decline as we foretold from 2017. And we have been right. 2018 will be worse.

So what was special about this lunacy?

Well, Shinsucker F**kamoron gave Finn 'fag' Balor a head bowing lapdance to his crotch which Balor responded to with a finger dab to his forehead. Wow. These two really are the future of WWE from that ignorance infested overseas hole, which wasn't when Max Waltham discovered it for WWE, in New Japan.

Oooh!
 Comedy Cena takes a tumble.
The other ignorance darling and TNA reject Bobby 'always trying to be Triple H in TNA' Roode, who hasn't even done a single thing in WWE of merit and looks as empty of personality than ever before, filled the numbers.

Samoa 'plodding along' Joe, who returned from injury, was also there, for god knows why.

John Cena was eliminated, who is now back on Smackdown after jumping to Raw in June/July. Say what? 

Randy Orton, the only actual star WWE have was once more dropped after open critique on Triple H's failed pet projects including Kevin 'the ratings dropped' Owen and his sidekick Sami 'coast along' Zayn. 

Kurt Angle almost won the show, but ego ridden nutjob Triple H turned on the Raw captain and cost him an elimination to be eliminated. Kurt Angle's in-ring returns have been an utter mess, and in denial his body is falling apart from it. He shouldn't have bothered.

Eventually Shane McMahon was dropped so Triple H could reign supreme with Vince McMahon's towering obsession in useless non-entity Braun 'brown' Strowman. To look like he wasn't going into business for himself, Triple H seemed to be 'doing something for others' (after destroying the entire products stars minutes ago) with Braun. Knowing Braun issues no creative threat to Hunter, Trips let him beat him up a bit after the bell.

The tally for Raw or Smackdown also became highly predictable throughout the show. The grand prize was nothing and won't be and cannot be followed up on. Once more WWE don't seem to realise how the show had no 'attraction' and lost its own core identity in its 'traditional' set up.

I win. Again. (Say's you).
Misses has joined in pitying
the trophy husband. 
The show ended, but Triple H, as he does, could not resist himself. With his beautiful wife Stephanie McMahon coming to his aide, and provocatively lowering herself in full camera view of her open legs almost flashing her vagina, and bulging breast about to pop out, Tripper had something else planned.

He took a long time to get up, trying to, and very pathetically, raise to his feet, staggering around the ring and falling over like a comedy skit that raised a couple of pity laughs. If this is entertainment, pretending to fall around and feel loved but being a desperate fool, then Triple H has succeeded.

When leaving he pretended not to see the titantron partition leading to the back and turned and smacked face first into it.

Erm...
The only laugh it generated was a desperate attempt to feel loved and exposed just how toxic the ego of Triple H is to WWE's failing product, which Vince McMahon feels he has to keep happy, now that his ignorant wife Stephanie chose of her own violation to become so, after a good track record. She has done this herself and will have to be prepared for the storm she has purposely created for herself. Vince once told her to keep quiet the next time she has another one of her "bright ideas" last year. Now she's got more of them it seems. Kids today. They just jump in without and business acumen of risk assessment. Money does not equal success. WWE are creatively bankrupt.

As for Survivor Series it was yet again another empty, filler PPV with no talent and all useless moments of WWE 'wrestling by the numbers' and coining it in (not very well) and also faking attendance numbers yet again. When will they ever learn what will equal success?

Yay! Triple H draws!

HaHaHa! What a laugh. 


You're Welcome.

WWE Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017

Tables Ladders and Chairs 
2017


After last month's worst ever PPV show in decades, Hell in a Cell, which was a paltry 0/10, WWE launched a follow up from the Raw brand, with TLC. Would this far any better despite being hit with last minute changes WWE had not planned for?

Apologies for the delay in the review upload, but, we have a life and if WWE aren't going to deliver and so poorly, why should we bother to stress ourselves because they don't have a life? WWE is all they know, and given how PPV has been booked, we're glad we waited.

Anyways, let's find out.

Live on Sunday, October 22nd, 2017, from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, WWE pulled out its toy furniture once more.



Asuka Vs Emma

Emma 'won' the right in a five man battle to play with Asuka tonight. WWE knew they had no other capable woman on the roster to carry its can with Asuka. The match was decent but WWE's bungled job out of Emma, as predicted, not only stalled the show, the same old mentality of WWE bullies, but also Asuka's debut as just another random victory that means virtually nothing. 

It's the Roman Reigns booking all over again.


Asuka defeated Emma by submission in a technically sound but wasteful match.

*Note*
As of a week later, two days ago from writing, Emma was released from WWE. It's best female star was let go. WWE have had a unknown problem with her, yet scandal ridden Xavier Woods and Paige, Alicia Fox, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Jinder Mahal and score of other useless talent remain on the roster at the height of programming. All those that have cost WWE its ratings and reputation. 

WWE callously released them on their website, in its regular, cowardly fashion. 

WWE also let go of Summer Rae, who was doing nothing, and the token black homosexual Darren Young, who many people knew WWE were using for media attention to seem less homophobic than they actually are.



Tag Team
Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann Vs Jack Gallagher and Brian Kendrick


WWE put out a tag team cruisers match. Why even bother. It was poor, laughable and hilariously infeasible that made WWE look like a complete mark with no business acumen once more. No one cares. The token black guys, Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann won. It was forgettable and pointless.



WWE Raw Women's Championship
Alexa Bliss (c) Vs Mickie James

Champion of perky breasts and not much else, Alexa Bliss, WWE's 'best of a bad bunch' had competish in Mickie James. HaHaHaHaHaHa!

WWE think that's actually a selling point, an ignorant nymphomaniac cheater who sleeps her way around the entire locker room and way past her prime. That's WWE for you. They like their women to be hoes. They just don't want it made public. 

All a big joke.
Bliss had another match by the numbers with sluggish and tender James, who still has no definable qualities other than an old and crusty plus one. Something which WWE have been using as a cheap and boring story.

Alexa Bliss predictably won in a seat warming exercise for Asuka. Mickie James was just another dependable notch on the bed post. 

So much for a women's revolution. This was a bathroom break at best.



Enzo Amore Vs Kalisto (c)

Even worse from WWE was a dreadful cruiserweight title challenge no one gave two hoots about. Enzo, who randomly lost the title to highly ignorant mosquito Kalisto on a quick 'Raw hiring' storyline WWE bend its rules over everytime with zero legitimacy, was another wasteful eight minutes.

Closet homosexual and token Latino midget ignorant acrobat Kalisto, who should never have been given the random 'title' to begin with, proved WWE play idiotic games that they realise are mistakes. Enzo Amore regained the strap with ease. The match was a pathetic mess with no skill whatsoever. WWE should be ashamed of such a disgrace served up to paying fans.



Finn Balor Vs Bray Wyatt AJ Styles

The next embarrassment was this. WWE had to draft AJ Styles in, which made no sense and WWE still did not provide it, to jump around with acrobat Finn Balor.

Finn Balor decided to dress up in his face paint and toilet paper dreadlocks as a 'Demon' we are supposed to be very scared of, instead of hilarious chuckling at.

Treading water on Smackdown and stinking out the place comes ignorant hickory action figure AJ Styles. Another bouncy blancmange in a throwaway match that had nothing to offer. It was meek, all showy fluff and no level technical or enhancing desire.

WWE had originally planned for Bray Wyatt, who recently filmed a vignette posing as Sister Abigail (what?) to battle this 'Demon' face paint stick. 

WWE were planning to have Wyatt perform as Abigail in a dress. Yeah, the audience had their own WTF moment here. WWE seem to think it's amazing. They wouldn't be able to make it good, but of course, I would be able to make this work, so from me it would have potential. From WWE it was pathetic mockery that alienated fans further on the Bray Wyatt screw up project.

Finn Balor beat AJ Styles in a very long, near twenty minute mess that filled up time instead of talent to carry WWE through a bungled mess.

Wyatt and Roman Reigns were said to have been struck down with a mystery illness around the lockerroom, later revealed as mumps. Others believed it was steroids that WWE had covered over.

Thanks for coming AJ Styles. 



Jason Jordan Vs Elias

Has something appealing
in all this mess.
Random drifter Elias, former Sampson, fought with rising star and unexplained switch from other brand as Kurt Angle's 'son' Jason Jordan. 

WWE have high hopes for Jordan, saddled with a stupid gimmick, though has got potential if WWE get it right, which clearly they will ruin once more, as always.

Jason Jordan won. It was just there, at this point and has no feeling to it.



Tables Ladders and Chairs 
Tag Team, Handicap, 5 on 3
Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns Kurt Angle Vs The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman and Kane

This was the main collision mess. Tables, Ladders, all the fixtures and fittings were thrown around. While it was cheap to encourage a few Independent, hardcore cheers from fans with flying plastic toys, WWE had a lot to answer for.

With Roman Reigns ill with 'mumps' Vince McMahon's brain fart come wave was adding in Kurt 'don't break the neck' Angle as filler for The Shield's grand failure of reuniting repeats.  How embarrassing.

Their opponents were drafted in big man Kane, who has not been seen for roughly a year. WWE teamed Miz with Cesaro and Sheamus. The other two hanger on's, were clear signs WWE didn't rate its Miz-tourage in Bo Dallas and talented but misused beefcake Curtis Axel. 

The Shield's trio of honourary member and two guys of three, ignorant sap Kurt Angle, Seth Rollins and lukewarm Dean Ambrose defeated the other five. Despite a cheap attempt to give fans some hardcore-ish action flying everything around, it was another admission of poor interaction.

Having ill stars was no excuse. The players may have changed but WWE's booking was very much the same format. This speaks volumes on how WWE have neglected business for lunacy to stand out for something. WWE don't even know what they are trying to stand out for.

Oh, and Brock Lesnar wasn't there for this one, either. Even he won't go on such a tainted calamity. 



PPV Rating - 1/10




Men/Women of their matches - Emma, Cedric Alexander, Alexa Bliss, Neither were good enough, Neither were good enough, Jason Jordan, Cesaro




Man/Woman of the PPV - Sister Abigail




Ironic that the theme of the PPV was the one removed from it. Asuka/Emma was a wasted opportunity.

As you read this, before the PPV, Nia Jax also requested to be let go from WWE, which was quietly played down by WWE. She was annoyed with WWE's lack of direction for her, given her time on the main roster and the powerful presences she should have been making. Once more WWE messed up its own division yet again.



AJ Styles parachuting in was a throwaway emptiness with a rag doll toilet paper carnival freak. Bray Wyatt had a lucky escape.

The cruiserweights in tag's and title's, as if WWE didn't learn over the past year, is PPV suicide. 

The stands at PPV were also highly unfilled just like house shows, filling roughly 1/3 of its entire capacity. WWE think nothing of it. Hilarious. The production is still very much the same repetitive lost hole.

WWE are going to have another big hit come their way like the Injury phase that struck everyone down over the last decade. WWE still haven't made any new stars and coasted along for media and self ego. The results are telling. WWE have no leg to stand on. 

No-one cared, it was rushed, lame and empty. Same old routine, daft interactions and coasting along lunacy with gimmick jumps. A cruiserweight PPV at its finest. Which was purely pathetic embarrassment no one could or should be proud of.

Only Emma saved the PPV, despite WWE's hatred of her for their failed booking on her. They treated her with reward over a week later with release. Wonderful.

Whilst she won her debut, Asuka has no presence in WWE and carrying over from a random pit of obscurity in NXT wont correlate to the main roster. At this point in time she is no-one, and WWE are clueless at booking /NXT call ups, thinking that is enough to deliver on them. Airheads. If WWE were smart they would have had Asuka lose and keep the feud going strong. WWE of course, have no clue.

TLC was another bungled mess that served no purpose and is enshrined in the archive as another forgettable PPV.

WWE instantly began moving on to the upcoming mess that is going to be Survivor Series. WWE repeats are at its most troubling ever. There is no future ahead, currently. 

WWE are slowly and blindly driving their mini bus at full speed of the cliff. No-one in WWE has the balls, manpower, talent or creativity among its b*tch boy yes men and airhead fluffers era for egotistical trophy hoarding. Congrats, the trophy is yours. The prize turkey at its greatest decline. 

WWE are too scared to do what needs to be done.

You're Welcome.

WWE Hell in a Cell 2017

WWE Hell in a Cell
2017


Switching up the PPV's once more, this time Smackdown was given the Hell in a Cell gimmick card, laced with Shane 'he'll do a spot' McMahon trying to get over some random fat boy who has failed to ignite Independent scenes as well as WWE viewers rapidly dropping ratings than pounds.

Other card skirmishes were random filler, but would they stand out or just be another afterthought?

Live on Pay Per View from the Little Caesars Arena on Sunday 08th October, 2017, Hell in a Cell began.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship
Hell in a Cell
Tag Team
The Uso's Vs The New Day, Big E and Xavier Woods (c) w/ Kofi Kingston

In its repeat series, WWE randomly returned the Smackdown tag titles to the New Day trio of lunatics. Nothing new from their stale Raw days then.

They fought, as champions, with spare wheel Xavier Woods, against The Uso's. 

The Uso's held the match together with laced skills and technique to really shine their greatest after we've constantly pointed that out to WWE, who seem to hate The Uso's based on talent than worthless sex pest Woods and over-towering tank Big E.

The Uso's regained the titles they should never have lost in WWE's attempts to create some excitement to title switches. They tend to switch the wrong titles in the first place, and to its new holders is very questionable concern.

The Uso's shone but it was simply a basic match, despite huge effort from the guys as WWE have done a number on them, along with the dreadful back alley black gangs stereotype which had no real feeling of interaction to fans.


Randy Orton Vs Rusev

What should be a motion epic of key players sidetracked from main event successes was another forgettable match despite huge talents in both corners. 

WWE have grown bored of both men, who are two of the only selling points of the brand and company to date. WWE seem to alienate their own strengths, which makes investors and fans rightly worry how delusional WWE's marketing strategies are affecting the actual 'sports entertainment' values.


Once more like previous bouts of embarrassing Rusev, whom WWE now hate, had Randy Orton pummel through with another blasting RKO, which was well done by both, but again, forgettable like its previous bouts over the last two months.



WWE United States Championship
Triple Threat
AJ Styles (c) Vs Baron Corbin Vs Tye Dillinger

A perfect 0.
Random fluffer come cabbage patch doll, Tye Dillinger, was added as a late entry to the battle for some unknown reason. No one cared.

With Baron Corbin in the dog house over the last month for speaking out, and losing his heavyweight title chance, he was given credible booking tonight in efforts to shock the fans on what they do or don't know from fanzine dirt sheet rags.

Tye Dillinger was there as many knew, to take the pinfall. AJ Styles smashed him with the odd finisher thingy as Baron Corbin snuck in, rolled Styles out the ring and clambered over Dillinger to secure the 1-2-3 and lift the United States Championship.

It was a poor run through, highly forgettable, with sloppy interactions, AJ spot monkey acrobatics and an ever floundering Corbin who still hasn't gotten over in three years. It was a welcome change from the looney tune in Styles clogging up WWE titles like the Indy luvvies that killed all progress. It's too little too late, as WWE endorsed such actions that devalued all its lineage.

Title holders and in this case, are simply cushion warmers for random straps of zero value.


WWE Smackdown Women's championship
Natalya (c) Vs Charlotte Flair

In the same old repeat stereotype of 'Women's' matches consisting of Natalya carrying Charlotte every year and WWE's obsession with devaluing its remaining roster for favourites of their daddies, the 'E served another typically useless end.

Charlotte Flair won the match, as predicted, once again, (yawn) by disqualification, making sure Natalya kept her title but again looked like another useless defender of the gold to invaluable (to WWE) blank canvas Charlotte, who still hasn't improved as much as she should have. 

The so called Women's Revolution that Max Waltham birthed, based on female respect, distorted by WWE's airheads in Triple H and Stephanie Mc'media'Man was again another defunct selling point of laughability that only WWE don't seem to see. 


WWE Championship
Jinder Mahal (c) w/ The Singh Brothers Vs Shinsuke Nakamura

Roids. Something to be proud of.
WWE's untranslatable gimp in Shinsucker F**kamoron is yet another NXT experiment from Triple H's failed business acumen which Vince McMahon endorses for his Indian market promotion. 

WWE's Smackdown and even Raw shows have lost massive numbers of attendances, ratings and ticket sales. They gave the title to Mahal, whom they made up as a terrorist type who takes steroids and gets rewarded as its main star, who used to be the fluffer on its lowest shows beforehand. 

Mahal isn't even Indian, he's Canadian. 

Jinder Mahal predictably won in the standard involvements and side attraction distortion to remain WWE's weakest WWE champion to date.

Many believe he's keeping the seat warm for AJ Styles, where WWE once again, has no talent on offer. WWE will naturally make an even bigger mistake. Isn't it wonderful?

The action was sluggish, boring and empty filler with another acrobatic fool involved with a steroid junkie jobber.

WWE quality at its finest.


Dolph Ziggler Vs Booby Roode

The debut of another NXT/TNA fluffer who is in serious need of a charisma and personality transplant, namely Bobby Roode took on resident back layer Dolph Ziggler.


Bobby Roode, another of Triple H's fandom funsies, was given the win, who also tried to be HHH in TNA, which failed pitifully, to fail in WWE too.

Flabs.
It's okay, Roode has the NXT luvvies and Indy marks in his corner as every NXT call up does. They only last for fifteen minutes before they fizzle out as another in a long line of ignorance hires. Thanks for coming.

Another sluggish and piss poor match, where Roode from his TNA days still hasn't learnt how to apply effective holds and transitions with clunky footing is a bloody disaster right of the bat that WWE hope to avoid. WWE make themselves the biggest mark instead now. It won't get over, because Roode is entirely hopeless like all else before him. WWE don't seem to see the real world in its clouded environment. Not my problem though, is it?

Oh yeah, Dolph Ziggler was involved in this somewhere, if you remember him.


Falls Count Anywhere
Hell in a Cell
Shane McMahon Vs Kevin Owens



In its continued failed efforts to get Kevin 'hapless' Owens over, they needed the McMahon's involved. That made it even worse. Vince McMahon came to Smackdown only to be headbutted and suffer a bloody forehead. They raved it was a success. It was dreadful. Owens' headbutt barely connected, his gut bounced McMahon and the spot was bungled. McMahon looked an even bigger fool for allowing such idiocy. he was allowed to bleed on television too, which once more abuses the rules set out for everyone else. Performers are fined huge sums if they purposely bleed on screen. Even Vince's spritely daughter of media whorism, Stephanie, came to supply a towel for her daddy. How empowering, girl.


Christ almighty.
Shane McMahon took the challenge to work with this bulbous travesty that has destroyed WWE's future based on ignorance alone before him. WWE and his best friend, Triple H, thought they could sidestep the issues and defiantly rub this writer's nose in it by being belligerently aggressive. Well done Triple H. You have succeeded. Ratings down, tickets down, stock down, performer value down, fans down, investment down, advertisers down, networks concerned, titles worthless, empty seats everywhere and free ticket bribes. Score!


The ego is real, and Triple H is the problem with WWE's hiring fandom markism of his own failed brain cells more like a brain-fart. The Airhead era is solely on him at this point and his natural wife Stephanie has jumped on the bandwagon to defend her man, which has put her in a vulnerable position as the other half of the lunacy. Vince has always been keen to protect his daughter from the business side of gritty problems, yet has fully encouraged her to jump in head first. Children.

Aside from the politics of WWE, which is widely affecting everything, the on-screen involvement of Owens-Shane O was bloody horrendous. Owens did his routine roll out of the ring after being tired out from a couple of whines and falbby punches that had no level main event quality.

It was all about spots and gimmicks as fans knew.

Big Kev was only there to try and relive his Indy darling days of crushing his body in 'hardcore-ish' 'stuff' including a copycat moment where Shane McMahon jumped off the top of the Cell onto an outside table where Owens was atop. A copy of The Undertaker-Wrestlemania battle was another sigh of pathetic repetition. WWE really do have nothing left do they?

It was also reckless of Shane O to throw himself into the table yet again, risking his entire life for real, over some guy who will never get over, in a cheap match that was all about "holy sh*t" moments and no actual talent.

Sami Zayn was at ringside and pulled Big Kev off the table so Shane would land through it and Kevin Owens could win another tainted and useless jobber victory with zero talent involved. 


Wherever Kevin Owens is, so is Sami Zayn. The pair are a pathetic and lost attraction who failed to draw in singles collisions done to death. Now they are back together as pals which makes them and WWE look entirely feeble and as useless as the acrobats.

It was just sad.

A week before the PPV, Owens and Zayn in a singles match main event on Smackdown pulled another of the shows lowest ever ratings. WWE are completely clueless and heading down the WCW-TNA-Dixie Carter-Jeff Jarrett route of self implosion. 

Why any cable company/network would continue this downward spiral would be absurdly delusional.

WWE is no longer profitable and without the most important people involved in the business, WWE has got no selling points whatsoever. 

You're Welcome.




PPV Rating - 0/10



Men/Women of their matches - Jey Uso, Rusev, Baron Corbin, Natalya, No one was good enough, Dolph Ziggler, Shane McMahon



Man/Woman of the PPV - No one




WWE's Hell in a Cell has achieved history. It is the first EVER PPV to receive a ZERO (0) rating. Pitiful and wasteful to the core, WWE really need to wake up to serious concerns in front of its disastrous programming. 

HIAC is officially the WORST PPV of 2017 thus far and probably will be.

Repetitive, lack of story, no feeling and useless fluffers with WWE's lost ideal, media obsessions and product failings cannot go unnoticed. WWE is a sheer mess right now and WWE have go NO idea what to do to improve it from their board room brain farts.

That's their problem though, isn't it?

Shane McMahon's dive may as well have been a nosedive, just like Owens' drop of the ratings rather than himself.


Zayn still doesn't have a role and no one cares yet again.

Natalya/Charlotte is the official Cena/Orton/Triple H saga that distilled WWE years before its injury served retribution for on air failings. No one cares about Nat/Char LXXVI (that's 76 for all lazy bone, brainless WWE staffers). 

Bobby Roode, what another laugh WWE serve up. 

Followed by the absurdity of a terrorist junkie fluffer and an acrobatic nobody needing a flyswatter. HaHaHa.

Tag battle in a Cage. Oooh, haven't seen that for a while. The result is exactly why.  Yeah, that's a great idea. Airhead decisions with no legitimacy.

Baron Corbin did it. Only because everyone else is so pitiful as an option. Meh.

WWE's future is bleaker than ever and with more PPV's like this and no solid ideas or strategies on how to outline the future, WWE is in worse a position than ever before, and no one ever thought that a possibility. However, now it is more closer than ever before.

Vince McMahon won't be around forever, the brash McMahon's in Steph and Triple H hate those who help, yet they need more than daft hires and wrong media fluff to try and sell a couple of tickets.

The Airhead Era.
No-one in WWE has their head screwed on right and even Shane McMahon disappointed with his latest program. WWE is severely flawed and needs to get it's head out of its ass and into the, ahem, game. No Triple H, lose your ego, it doesn't men you, just because it was once a similar named monkier. 

Start being a professional, but then again, many believe WWE has none and that is exactly why its ego and hate fuelled toxicity in its environment has caused a serious problem for its coming future. 


We will have to see if WWE truly care about their place in the world, than jumping on a flight to talk a two minute nonsense for a quick moment of love that mean absolutely nothing long term.
You're Welcome.
