Poncho Man's SummerSlam Preview.

Cesaro vs Sheamus Best of seven Match 1
Isn't this more like match 20? I guess some remember Benoit vs Booker T (I dont), and some remember Beer Money and the Guns. I really liked Beer Money vs The Guns. Hopefully we get some cool matches?

Sami Zayn and Neville vs The Dudley Boyz
Somebody forgot that Sami Zayn needed a match. I like all these guys? Maybe it will be something.

American Alpha, The Hype Bros, and The Usos vs Breezango, The Ascension, and The Vaudevillians
Well, well, well. The quintessential match that no one care about.

Carmella, Becky Lynch, and Naomi vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and what was supposed to be a Filth Blood.
Ha. Eva. Adderall. College kids. Ha. Non sequitur....Marty Scurll looks so cool. Anyway....I like butts so this match is right up my alley.

The Miz vs Apollo Crews for the Intercontinental Championship
Did either of you guys see Miz and Maryse laying on top of Renee Young's Spaceship? It was great. Hopefully we get a sweet crane shot.

Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs Jeri-Ko
Good on the mic, good on the TV feud. I hope the promos are longer than the match. Kinda wish KO had a bigger spot on the card though.

The New Day vs The Club for the WWE Tag Team Championship
If it wasn't for WWE's long running obsession with bad testicle jokes....
I'm so sick of testicle puns. Low hanging fruit. I predict new champs.

Sasha Banks vs Charlotte for the WWE Women's Championship
Looking forward to it.

Rusev vs Roman Reigns for the WWE United States Championship
Well, all that goodwill he was creating being an angry badass....he's back to bad promos, sly grins, and probably more testicle jokes. Now he's mad that people got married. Fuck this character. It sucks.

John Cena vs AJ Styles
When do you think Cena will lose another feud? The last time was Punk right? I guess maybe DBD...but that wasn't really a feud. Is it time?

Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship
Dean has been the Dean we've wanted lately, as has Dolph. Leads me to have pleasant feelings of anticipation.  Maybe random, but it's actually been a good build.

Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor for the WWE Universal Championship
Finn Balor...the only NXT Champion to have very little chemistry with his opponents (did he have chemistry with Neville? Maybe he did). Hopefully these two have good chemistry. Anyway, Stupid belt name. Stupid dreadlock hat. Leather jacket badass is cooler than Foreign Jeff Hardy.

Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton for the Filth Blood Championship
I just wish I didn't know about the enhancement. I think I'm trying to teach my brain to be excited, but it's hard. I'll probably be excited in the moment.

Chuck Taylor is now DUSTIN apparently? This show seems to be really long? Lots of matches. WWE is weird. Mark Wrestle mania seems lacking. Anyway...enjoy the show. Oh...UFC'S Evolution Of Punk was very....weird. Cody Rhodes is making his first indie shows this weekend. Aaaand...I'm done.

NXT Takeover Back II Brooklyn Preview

Ember Moon vs Billie Kay
I've never seen the former Athena wrestle. I hear she's good. Billie Kay has big cheeks and a small chin. Yep.

No Way Jose vs Austin Aries
I hope when he makes the main roster it changes to just "No Way." They were able to show a ridiculous character with fire and kinda make one believe he actually wants to fight Aries. I think I like the dance, but not the character.

Andrade "Cien" Almas vs Glorious Bobby Roode
I kinda feel embarrassed that I picked Almas in the SCW draft based on his CMLL/NJPW character because Cien is worse than Jose. Oh and it is fucking bizarre to be into Roode....solely based on the best theme song going.

The Revival vs Gargano and Campaign for the NXT Tag Team Championships
After months of not being into the tag teams in NXT (based on once again having characters that are having a slightly hard time getting over on the main roster even though they are being treated like "stars")....I'm totally into this. So happy for Gargano to have signed and getting his farewell tour while already getting over in NXT. If he were to ask me "Did you enjoy the show tonight?" I would say yes.

Asuka vs Bayley for the NXT Women's Championship
This is weird. If Bayley doesn't win, the story is odd. If she does win, does she show up on RAW with the belt? I guess she could lose it at a house show. Should be exciting either way.

Samoa Joe vs Shinsuke Nakamura for the NXT Championship
If this doesn't steal the show (and maybe the weekend) I will be disappointed. Yeaoh.

Currently watching Evolve 64. Sabre vs Jigsaw right now. Death Before Dishonor is downloaded and probably next. Wrestling in August is the best. More soon....
