Kofi Kingston goes. And with the positive and momentum on his side, he gets another shot at Daniel Brian's WWE championship. I am capricious. A similar match – pseudo-revenge from PPV – usually does not do much to advance history. But when for Kingston everyone wins another Bryan victory and is declared the first contender for the WWE Championship? Sign me up!
To begin with, I want to talk about the New Day. Xav & # 39; s Woods & Running E gathered to his friend and helped him save his head after the liquidation chamber. They again sang the praises of their friend at SmackDown, and you could see how much Kofi would help. Damn, he reported two of them in an interview behind the scenes.
And with such positivity Kofi went out and killed him. Again. He received a hot tag and brought a squall of Brian's images, including his signature dipping outside that we saw from a really cold low angle. Good job, WWE camera guy!
And in the end, the crowd is still 1
* Pokes with a stick * … Asuka?
I was not too concerned about Asuka in the last few weeks simply because I'm getting it. WWE wanted Becky Lynch's story uncomplicated, and there was no real need for Asa to go and get confused. There will be plenty of time to find her opponent at WrestleMania.
But now, when she returned and immediately lost to Mandy Rose? Okay, I'm ready to sound a little sirens.
Asuka got a promotion before the match, where they asked her if she feels she was in the poor women's raw women's championship. Obviously, this is a fair question, and the fact that the fan base has already dispersed. Asuka answered the way you expect from the WWE strategy; She briefly mentioned Becky Lynch's beating before dismissing all of this and focusing on new challenges.
Mandy Rose, of course, is considered such, but I'm not very happy with how they build Rose. She won a distraction from Lacy Evans and figured out an injury to the eye in this match to steal a dump that fell apart from the champion.
I have no problems with WWE, trying to get some warmth and legitimacy both for Rose and for Evans. My problem, however, is due to the fact that Asakaka is a big deal … and you win with some cheap stunts that we constantly see in the matches? There is nothing really significant about how Rosa is Asuka; Asuka was just beaten.
And it's not terrible … more. But they consider me officially concerned about this hostility. We need Rose to climb to the Asuka level, and not vice versa. As part of the Elimination Chamber, Usoc raised the question of whether the largest tag team in the world is a true tag team. Now look at Miss, looking for shortcuts after one loss.
Miss launched a tearful story that Shane fell and asked Shane to use their powers to give them a revenge for the titles. Keep in mind that WWE has departed from automatic ravers in December – this means that Miss begins to deviate from the way for the baby.
Aleister Black def. Andrade – This match was very funny, but did not have enough time to be really big … but of course it did not have to be. The crowd of New Orleans made Black feel much more important than the previous night, and Black won the 4th win at NXT Superstars in two nights. And on the eve of the "big announcement" scheduled for NXT this week? Now this whole thing has some kind of story to him and not feeling like some free add-on to the show. It makes the world a difference.
DIY def. The Bar – Another match, another victory for the NXT team. I enjoyed DIY much more on this show simply because backstage interaction with another tag command was a thousand times better. The bar fell into their faces and openly mocked the duet and laughed when Johnny Gargano promised to break the bar. fell on the leg of Champa. I was so sure that Champa broke something alive, but the NXT Champion was able to shake it and finish the match.
Ricochet def. Eric Young – Prudence of life !!! But not long, with Ricochet around. It was not such a good show for One and Only as last night. He is a crowd, but I do not think that he has received such a strong response as other NXT gentlemen. But that's good; Keep hugging the kids as you did in your ricochet, Rocoshete, and you will force even the earthed heart to grow wings.
I think I have a SmackDown bias. I like the SmackDown comment more, more talk about SmackDown, and I can not help. It was not even the strongest show, but I would still appreciate it above the average.
What about you, Cageside? Did you recognize the KofiMania fever?
