May 1, 2017 - WWE

WWE Payback is live from a SAP Center in San Jose and a pre-show row is already fumbling. we censure Sam Roberts, whose solitary charge is to shoehorn the term “WWE Universe” into each conversation. Todd Pettengill would have never let this happen.

Braun Strowman degraded Roman Reigns during WWE Payback

Speaking of fumbling, let’s demeanour during Raw’s viewership in a month of April.

It’s a post-WrestleMania blues, ladies and gentlemen. WWE’s intelligent announcement of a Superstar Shake-Up and a arise of Braun Strowman indeed kept viewership clever for many of a month, though final week’s dump to 3.007 million viewers is a commencement of WWE’s annual post-WrestleMania decline. Still, with WWE proficiently jacket a arms around new media, 3 million viewers on television has translated to tens of millions of views on YouTube.

In a time it took we to review these stats, Sam Roberts pronounced “WWE Universe” 28 times.


Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

Enzo and Cass mentioned an array of Chinese entrees to open a WWE Payback Pre-Show. Conspicuous by a deficiency was Panda Express’ Firecracker Chicken. Who doesn’t adore Panda Express’ Firecracker Chicken?

At what indicate does WWE try a fitness with Tex Ferguson? Gallows and Anderson are like a prohibited and green soup of a tab group division. Sure it’s good, though do we unequivocally need it?

Booker T referred to Big Cass as a “star in a making,” while Michael Cole gushed that he has “all a tools” to succeed. Big Cass didn’t make his name in a indies. These are all a makings of WWE’s subsequent good babyface and a Internet’s subsequent good heel.

The SAP Center booed a striking of the House of Horrors match. It’s a bad feeling for my prediction that this compare will not be horrible.

The Miz interviews Finn Balor 

The Miz is set to troll struggling babyface Finn Balor. He customarily does a good pursuit with Miz TV, though here are a few questions he could ask:

  • “Are we fearful of Brock Lesnar? Seriously, we haven’t pronounced his name once given your return and he has a Universal Championship that we never lost. Why don’t we call him out already instead of toiling around with Curt Hawkins? The Amway Arena was chanting for we to step adult to Lesnar a night after WrestleMania, and we didn’t answer a bell. What are we watchful for? Is there even a storyline reason as to because we haven’t called him out? Are we frightened of Brock Lesnar? It’s fine if we are, we all are. But are you?
  • “Can we put a physique paint behind on already? we keep wanting to call we Noam Dar.

Miz and Balor seemed to be in a passive-aggressive duel to see who could demeanour some-more gentle in a director’s chair.

About 10 mins into a segment, Brock Lesnar’s name was mentioned…by The Miz. Balor did not say Brock’s name once. Maybe he is scared.

The SAP Center has an announced assemblage of 13,694 at a SAP Center. Average sheet prices for a customary WWE pay-per-view is typically $80 to $100, definition WWE’s live embankment should be around $1.0 to $1.3 million for WWE Payback.

WWE United States Championship Match: Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens 

Kevin Owens needs to start entrance to a ring with an American flag.

Owens has code new American-themed merchandise. Chris Jericho is on his approach out of WWE to tour with Fozzy. There’s a unequivocally tiny chance Owens loses this match, nonetheless fans still cheered on Jericho. That’s a covenant to Y2J.

How prolonged until we get a Kevin Owens froth finger on WWEShop.com?

Owens mislaid a US Title in a night’s initial swerve. Expect Owens to recover a championship this Tuesday night on SmackDown Live in a compare that could boost ratings with a “Loser Leaves Town” stipulation.

The cruiserweights were slotted in a second compare in front of a sharp-witted throng that was still unequivocally many into WWE Payback. They chanted “Austin Aries” mixed times throughout. Are people finally starting to caring about a embattled cruiserweight division?

Neville will continue to be a good in this multiplication as prolonged as he allows his hair to cover a front of his face.

Matt Hardy doing a “delete” motion as a member of a sentimental Hardy Boyz competence as good be him holding one finger in a atmosphere as if to contend “hold on, be patient, I’ll be damaged shortly enough.”

As Cole rattles off Sheamus’  accolades we comprehend he has one of a many considerable singles resume of any tab group performer in WWE. The same can be pronounced about Jeff Hardy, except somehow Jeff Hardy’s accolades all feel more like they indeed happened.

Jeff Hardy was kicked in a face by Sheamus and apparently mislaid a tooth per Cole and Corey Graves. If that’s true, a normal singular tooth deputy costs $1,000, that substantially equates to about half of a Swanton Bomb.

At one indicate in this match, Cesaro jumped so high he roughly pennyless that potion roof he never reached.

Booker T got unequivocally dismissed adult during Shesaro’s heel-turn, so many so, when my Roku feed cut out we primarily suspicion he was being censored for carrying another “coming for you” moment.

WWE Raw Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley

WWE could have had a bit some-more fun with this Bayley’s father impression we kept conference about. we was anticipating he had a same braid as Bayley. In a end, he wasn’t even shown on camera.

Bayley’s hometown acclaim could have been a weekly thing if her impression was scrupulously requisitioned as a friendly loser she is.

By a approach things are going, possibly House of Horrors or Seth Rollins-Samoa Joe will turn a vaunted  popcorn match.

Alexa Bliss became a initial lady to win both a Raw Women’s Championship and a SmackDown Women’s Championship. She also became a initial lady not named Charlotte or Sasha Banks to make story doing anything in WWE.

When a shirtless Randy Orton got into a limo and asked to be forsaken off in a center of nowhere, did a limo motorist not have any questions?

House of Horrors had baby dolls suspended from a ceiling, image potion and cheesy credentials music. At what indicate does this limo motorist call a police? Not on Bray Wyatt or Randy Orton, though on WWE.

The best partial of House of Horrors was Virgil’s (NSFW) Twitter account.

In sequence to get behind to a ring, Orton and Wyatt should usually share a limo and make tiny talk.

Apparently “boring” chants rang out during a match. These people can’t design each fear film to be as good as Get Out. 

This compare could usually finish in pinfall, acquiescence or forfeiture, so technically House of Horrors ended after a fans gave adult on it.
