Most important Card:
Bianca Belair vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch
(Uncooked Ladies’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. Aspect be aware: I do know nothing in regards to 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 ladies in WWE for the time being, and I may have seen it in individual, however I did not wish to drive to Rosemont, sorry, “Chicago.”
It is a nice approach to kick issues off proper now, and a lot in order that I am crying–that’s most likely as a result of the poke bowl I ordered is spicy as hell. Regardless, the practice is shifting 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 completely happy.
What this match did exceptionally nicely was it by no means made any of those three ladies weak. Whereas Belair retaining made essentially the most sense, it felt like anybody may have taken residence the title. I kinda want this went to Asuka–even if I am an enormous Lynch supporter–but I am proud of the end result and the end. This one was a variety of enjoyable.
Chris: It is humorous, I used to be actually simply telling somebody that Becky Lynch’s gimmick proper now could be “Met Gala On a regular basis.” That individual wasn’t Mat, however I am glad we’re on the identical wavelength. Anyway, I respect the desperation Becky Lynch acts with nowadays. She’s cocky, however she’s dying to have her title again and is prepared to combat soiled to make it occur. In the meantime, Bianca Belair continues to look as one of many absolute strongest ladies within the business–and he or she is. However she’s not been proven to be a “weak” champion for any cause.
Then there’s Asuka. I like Asuka and am glad she’s again. The gang loves her, her offense is all the time enjoyable to look at. However at no level within the construct to this did I ever view her as a chance for getting the win. She was merely by no means positioned in such a means that made her look like a risk to Belair. Maybe, it will have been greatest in the event that they let Asuka and Becky Lynch be a sluggish burn feud, conserving them each busy whereas Bianca went toe-to-toe with different ladies on the roaster earlier than this triply risk 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 centered on Becky and Bianca. Even nonetheless, all three delivered very thrilling moments. Truthfully, the double ankle lock spot was most likely 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 relation to each of those opponents. Whenever you make Asuka really feel much less particular, you are doing one thing mistaken.
Bobby Lashley vs. Omos & MVP
Lashley wins by submission.
Mat: MVP just isn’t rapper. Can I make the entire evaluation about MVP’s music about Bobby Lashley? It’s totally dangerous and feels very dated, like from 1987. However is it dangerous 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 acquired shrimp, tuna, and salmon. I am actually dwelling dangerously as a result of I reside outdoors of Chicago and consuming seafood. There’s a variety 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 variety of nothing taking place, and the gang gave an enormous pop for Lashley spearing Omos as a result of “one thing occurred.” Anyway, the match occurred, and I acquired pumped about Lashley and Cedric Alexander possibly teaming up, however I need this Omos/MVP nonsense over with. The match was high quality. I actually loved seeing Lashley super-over with the gang. I like him lots, 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, it is a lot just like the match the 2 had final month, besides MVP was there to take the loss this trip. I truthfully do not know what to say about this match, apart from Lashley continues to be tremendous standard with the gang, 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 exhausting is that to know? 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 happening, although? Whereas we’re at it, why are the announcers not speaking about how Ezekiel is bleeding after taking a DDT? A minimum of 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 Kinds & Liv Morgan vs. The Judgment Day
Edge pins Bálor.
Mat: Chris loves Rhea Ripley. He is mentioned it lots on the podcast. That is data you actually must know. I get pleasure from me some stables, even when they really feel a bit spinoff. I additionally want Morgan/Balor/Kinds would give you a reputation for his or her group: The Fabulous Threebirds, Fullofit Membership, The Completely happy Campers. The identify selections are countless.
A six-man (six-person?) tag match has the potential to interrupt down right into a chaotic mess, at any level of time. But in some way, it by no means does. Liv Morgan is one hearth, and her spots with Ripley have been unbelievable, 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 carried out in wrestling at this level.
This was surprisingly a variety of enjoyable and nicely carried out. It remained thrilling all through your entire match The end was unbelievable, with Ripley offering a little bit of a distraction, and it actually elevates this group, as one other dominant steady in WWE.
Chris: I like Rhea Ripley. It is a feud that is been happening 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 faux 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 completely 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 acquired 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 Kinds is the second man tonight to get unintentionally bloody (and as soon as once more, the announcers ignored it). However it goes to indicate how a lot these individuals all threw at one another in what, so far, is the match of the evening. Judgment Day rightfully acquired the win and I am pleasantly stunned 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 needed simply but.
Madcap Moss vs. Completely happy 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? Completely happy Corbin wants a brand new identify change. I am considering “Feeling Betrayed Corbin” or “Content material Corbin.” Simply toss an emotion originally 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 throughout the match I loved, however all-in-all, it actually did not do a lot for me. Madcap is not attention-grabbing 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? In line with Merriam-Webster, madcap is outlined as “marked by capriciousness, recklessness, or foolishness.” As a substitute, should not he now be often called one thing like Offended Boy Moss?
The match was high quality, however bizarre. Madcap Moss, as a personality, makes zero sense. He acquired the win, however what does that do for him? He nonetheless would not look like a reputable risk to anybody besides, possibly Completely happy Corbin. It definitely was a “no holds barred” match and had the brutality to fulfill the hype, nevertheless it 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 the planet. Additionally, he was a delight. That is a double risk. Then, there’s Mustafa Ali, an amazing wrestler who took all of the credit score for hacking Smackdown and beginning Retribution when it was clearly the person often called 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 prime youthful expertise. The duo placed on a clinic, with some unbelievable strikes, like the center rope Spanish fly or the superb twister DDT. The problem with the match got here from the ending. We acquired a repeat of Principle hitting the highest rope prime get Ali off of the turnbuckle. Principle acquired a win clear, nevertheless it 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 would 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 on condition 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 an enormous 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 means again into Vince McMahon’s favor after letting him down by dropping 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 reasonably good bout and WWE did its typical factor the place the hometown hero has to lose. Nonetheless, there was a chance right here to go away this a match individuals will speak about. As a substitute, the heel gained clear. So there’s not even a cause 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 seems to be screwed up. Oh man, that appears dangerous. I’m not behind this. I don’t prefer it. I’m cringing at this. I significantly 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. (Until for some cause that we have all been worked–who is aware of anymore)
You’ll be able to’t have match when the gang is legitimately fearful about your real-life well-being. Hear, all of us love to look at good guys and dangerous guys beat the hell out of one another, however we nonetheless care in regards to the individuals performing within the ring. And on no account will we truly 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, until there’s some sort of fast shenanigans deliberate.
Truthfully, that is uncomfortable to look at, seeing how dangerous Cody’s pec is. Corey Graves retains speaking in regards to the “hush” that fell over the gang when Cody takes his jacket off and that is as a result of, truthfully, this looks as if a nasty thought. And clearly, Cody has been cleared by somebody on the medical employees. However it would not change the truth that this is not entertaining–it’s regarding.
The additional bummer on prime 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 in the end, the gang did get into it. All it took was a desk to look from below the ring. When doubtful, get the tables.
At a sure level, this was a bull rope match, which looks as if a nasty thought if you end up 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 acquired the win–he went 3-0 over Rollins on this feud–and will now go away for a while to deal with his damage. And I am right here, unable to charge this match as a result of it feels ghoulish to take action.
