Praise be to the Intellectual Saviour of the Masses who has returned and will surely guide us to a higher plane of wrestling glory. Let’s get in the ring, y’all!
Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
Ryback vs. Damien Sandow
Thank god for Sandow. Pulling a decent match out of Captain Dour Ryback is no small accomplishment. Even a clean pin from Ryback can’t dim Sandow’s glow or the crowd’s affection for him. With Adam Rose and Konnor gone, Sandow may have an opportunity to reclaim “lost ground” and a championship.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Tyler Breeze
Tyler Breeze and Ziggler have had quite a run of matches together. Some have argued they are too physically similar therefore a chore to watch. These people are crazy. This is a great match from beginning to end (a last second Superkick by Dolph for a clean pin.) Breeze should be getting and winning titles…he’s as graceful as he is brutal and it’s fantastic.
Breeze’s Gorgeous George 2016 gimmick is tremendous and creates a great energy in his performances. Ziggler does trade in the same Blonde & Fabulous deal to a degree, but it’s tempered by a more ‘grounded’ personality whereas Breeze has no upper limits for his peculiar brand of narcissistic majesty.
