So Becky Lynch went to twitter and made fun of Sasha Banks for dropping a bad promo on RAW. However, if you actually break down her promo, Sasha gave us confirmation that she cried on the floor, didn't care about the Women's tag-team championships and best of all she admitted to taking her ball and going home.
All week, I have heard wrestling podcasts trashing Sasha Banks for her promo, calling it lame. What these people seem to not understand is Sasha Banks is a HEEL! This was a heel promo!!!!
I don't understand why people don't get it, the promo was lame because it was supposed to be. Sasha is not trying to make you feel good about her return. She is not pandering to you idiots on social media. Sasha Banks told the truth, that's it, that's all.
I have no idea why Stone Cold is appearing at MSG. More than likely it is to promote something. Even more likely it is to help boost ratings as WWE has tried everything in their power to bring the ratings back to respectable numbers. It seems like every time I turn around there is another legend or an old timer appearing on RAW. I guess desperate times calls for desperate measures. Either way, I guess it will be nice to have Austin out there again but I highly doubt he will be able to give anybody a stunner due to his neck injury. I'm sure the crowd will pop though.
I just want to staying RIP Angela Valdez.
Secondly, why the hell did they change the damn theme music? That shit absolutely sucks now. I don't like the new song at all!!!
Okay, the first thing that happens we find out Angela is dead. Immediately I'm pissed off because Angie was my favorite charter in the whole damn show. Then to make matters worse Ghost sneaks up on Tommy inside of his house and they have this weak ass fight that is eventually ceased by Tarik. I don't know how other people may feel but to me that fight scene with Ghost and Tommy was wack.
Tommy gets Keisha to toss the gun he used to kill Angela in the river. Keisha did not use gloves when she touched the gun so I'm sure we will be seeing her name in brought into the investigation concerning the murder of Angela Valdez.
Tasha lets Ghost know she wants a divorce. Who couldn't see that coming? The divorce should have happened like 3 seasons ago. Tasha also is still in search of Terry Silver. Tasha doesn't know that Ghost killed Terry so Tasha is calling him back to back trying to contact him. There are rumors that Terry might still be alive but I highly doubt it.
The main scene of the whole show was Ghost shooting up Tommy's car. Now I have to admit, as bad as this episode was for me, this scene was crazy AF!
As turns out Tommy's boss stole Tommy's keys and had one of his men driving the car so when Ghost sprayed it with bullets he killed someone else and not Tommy.
Tarik seems as if he is probably gonna end up helping Tommy kill Ghost but you never know with Tarik. We have seen Tarik fake like he is going against Ghost while siding with Kanan but then he turned Kanan.
Overall I give this episode POWER a letter grade of C. To be fair a lot of my disdain for this episode is due to the fact that I hate the new intro music and I'm mad that Anglea is dead. Angie was the centerpiece in this whole story, everything revolved around her. Now that she is gone the show feels empty.
We all know that the reason Vince McMahon is switching NXT over to USA is to combat AEW in when it goes to TNT in the fall. However, another reason for the switch to USA is Smack Down moving to FOX on Friday nights. NXT moving to USA is a way to keep WWE programing on the USA network and it is at best an attempt to replace Smack Down and to also keep USA happy.
The only concern I have is that NXT may become less of a Triple H product and more of a Vince McMahon product which cheapen NXT and make it just like the main roster which has its own issues.
To make matters worse, NXT will be going head to head against AEW which id on fire right now. If NXT does not pull in good ratings McMahon could decide to get involved and start to pull out whatever crazy antics he thinks will be necessary to boost ratings and to take away from AEW's audience.
The big risk has pretty much no reward. WWE may get embarrassed in this situation. I can see the NXT ratings be so low that NXT is forced to move back to the WWE network which will make WWE look weak and pathetic in the eyes of today's smart wrestling fans.
Colts fans have become the biggest jackasses in all of sports. Andrew Luck being booed off of the field for retiring was not only disrespectful but it shows how stupid people are in 2019. To make matters worse, there are people online that are actually justifying the booing and saying it just shows how passionate the fans are about their team. No, what it shows is these people don't give a damn about Andrew Luck the person, they only care about winning a f*cking football game. I say to every single Colts fan that booed Luck as he was walking off the field, go f*ck yourselves! You deserve it.
Back in 1996, nobody would have thought that a toy company would own Death Row records. Yes, that Death Row records the same Death Row records that Makaveli The Killuminati was released on. Multiple sources report Hasbro toy company has purchased the record company after buying Entertainment One which took ownership of the bankrupt label back in 2013.
Hasbro CEO released a statement on the purchase.
“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” he said.
How sad is this for Hip-Hop?
Just thinking about the fact that this Ceo of a toy company owns the entire catalog of Hip-Hops most infamous record label makes me want to vomit. To make things worse, he barely knows anything about Death Row records. This is a sad moment for the culture.
Dwight Howard has signed with the Lakers again and NBA fans have not been too kind to him or the Lakers. The memes and sarcastic tweets have been nonstop. The ironic thing is Dwight Howard and the Lakers have mirrored one another over the past few years, they both have been a hot steamy pile shit. It's only right that they marry again.
Dwight Howard is a has-been who continues to live off his past success and the Lakers are a failing franchise that only remains relevant because of their past championships. If it was not for the Lakers prestige, they would not be mentioned as often as they are. As for Howard, I can not remember the last time he did anything memorable. Yet, both the Lakers and Howard are on the front pages of every sports site. It's a tragedy and it's entertaining as hell.
Colin Kaepernick replied to Jay-Z's claims that we are past kneeling by saying, "We ain't past nothing."
I said in my post addressing this subject some time ago that the NFL thinks that Jay-Z is still the voice of the Black community and whatever he does, Black people will follow suit. This is one of those times when they will find out they were wrong. Jay-Z has no pull other than the fact that he has a lot of money.
Of course, not every Black person in America got behind Kaepernick when he was kneeling in protest for the unarmed Black men in America that had been shot and killed by police officers without consequence.
What Jay-Z does not realize is that this cause is greater than his fame. Black people are not just ready to move on and not only that but as we see Eric Garner did not get justice and just goes to show that the powers that be are just ignoring the Black community as a whole. I'm not saying that kneeling will make them treat Black people fairly but it keeps the conversation going, that's the part that Jay-Z is missing. We don't want them thinking that we have just moved on like we usually do. Not this time.
Finally, the XFL has released their team names! XFL fans have been waiting months to get the names of their favorite teams and now they are here.
Okay, let's rank the names. First, off the absolute worse name of them all is the LA Wildcats. Why the hell would you name a team in LA, the Wildcats? There is nothing about LA that screams Wildcats. I almost like the XFL just got lazy or even ran out of names and just said all screw it, call them the Wildcats. Final grade on team name is an F.
The second worse team name is the Tampa Bay Vipers. I just don't get it. I feel they could have been a little more creative.
There is nothing terribly wrong with the team name Vipers but I feel they could have named the team after something more related to the State of Florida.
Final grade on the team name is a C-.
The DC Defenders is one that a lot of people have crapped on but I have to admit the name kind of makes sense.
DC being the Nations Capitol and by Washington representing the great military power of the United States, Defenders actually fits. This is a name people will probably learn to like as time goes on. Final grade on the name is a B.
Dallas Renegades is one I like very much. Hell, it's Texas. Texas is supposed to be badass. Not much to say about it but it's a great name that compliments the city of Dallas. Final grade on the team name is an A.
St. Louis Battle Hawks is so good and so on point. Battle Hawks sounds good and it is perfect in the sense that it says we are warriors but it is not too over the top.
Final grade on the team name is an A.
Seattle Dragons is kind of lame for a team name. It falls into that lazy creator category. Dragons is a name that is often used by minor leagues and creat-a-teams in video games. It's not the worst but definitely could have been something more appealing. Final grade on the team name is a D.
Houston Roughknecks is decent. I like that the name is not generic like the Dragons is. I get the concept of Texas being a tough guy state. All in all it is creative and feels legit at the same time.
Final grade on the team name is a C.
Last, it's the NY Guardians. I thought the name was stupid at first and then I had time to think about it. New York is Gotham City and New York is where a lot of superheroes stories are based. The XFL's trailer for the Guardians is what really sold me on the name.
Final on the team name is a B+.
