I hope everyone had a great weekend.
I went to my first live WWE event in a while Friday for Smackdown in Tampa. Good times. Cena didn’t show up on the televised portion but wrestled in the go home dark match with the Mysterios against the Bloodline. He did his normal move set and looked like he was getting his timing back. Keith Lee and Austin Theory had a dark match and Dakota Kai and Aliyah had a dark match, which makes me wonder if Dakota will be moving up.
As for the televised stuff unfortunately I was on the opposite side of the hard camera so my awesome custom “Right Hand Woman” didn’t get any airtime, although Jimmy Uso pointed it out and got Jey’s attention to look at it.
Roman was the merch mover. Lots of “Head of the Table” and “Acknowledge me” shirts being worn and purchased.
Fans responded really well to Sasha Banks and she has a way with the crowd. Definitely carries herself like a top-level star. I was worried Bianca wouldn’t get a good reaction, but she did and she did a good job of getting the crowd into her match. My son was quite upset that Toni Storm wasn’t on the match list, but he seemed pretty smitten with Tegan Nox. And she is pretty adorable in person. The two hours pretty much flew by and the crowd was fun.
As for tonight, AEW Elevators in the Dark is streaming. RAW is live. I guess tonight is the night Randy Orton returns. No more Olympics (BOO!) so it’s baseball and more baseball to get you through until the full slate of NFL preseason games begin.
Keep it Clean!
