Welcome back to the latest Weekly Wiz from our resident WWE expert Deggy! As well as the usual run down of Raw, Smackdown Live, latest news and rumors we’re also taking a spooky look at the WWE’s Top 5 Scariest Moments of all time…just in time for Halloween!
Stephanie McMahon Returns after Raw being Under Siege
A week after Raw being Under Siege, Stephanie McMahon the commissioner of Raw, returned since WrestleMania 33. She returned to Raw to confront the General Manager, Kurt Angle who had been running the show independently since the night after WrestleMania 33. Generally, Kurt had been doing well, until the Raws’ major event, ‘Under Siege’. Stephanie was extremely angry, as Kurt let Smackdown Live attack, without being ready. She then forced Kurt Angle to be the team captain of Monday Night Raw, at Survivor Series, to prove himself worthy of his job as General Manager. It wouldn’t be the first time Raws’ General Manager had been fired.
Nia Jax vs Bayley – Winner joins Women’s Survivor Series Match
The team captain of the Women’s Survivor Series, Alicia Fox was set to take on Bayley, but as she’s captain she obviously skipped the match but replaced herself, with Nia Jax. Nia took a short hiatus, Bayley tried her best, but couldn’t overcome Nia. Nia has now been added to the Survivor Series Match Card.
Prediction: Bayley wins by a roll up.
Result: Nia Jax makes a quick work of Bayley.
Samoa Joe Returns
the ring for a mere 2 month hiatus, from SummerSlam during his Fatal-4 Way. To be quite honest, I generally forgot about him, and also thought he left the WWE. After a short promo, he took on Apollo Crews w/Titus O’Neil. Joe took out Apollo Crews by making him tap to Cocina Clutch. A good return for the Destroyer.
The Miz vs Matt Hardy – Intercontinental Championship
Kurt Angle set the Miz to an Intercontinental Championship Defense, to an unknown opponent. The opponent was Matt Hardy, as Jeff Hardy is suffering from a neck injury, it has stopped him from fighting in Tag Matches, but that doesn’t mean he can’t compete in singles competition. Matt did exceptionally well, in the last moments, Matt hit the Twist of Fate, however he wisely rolled out of the ring, and out of nowhere, he hit the Skull-Crushing Finale, to retain.
Prediction: The Miz retains the title
Result: The Miz retains the title
Kane attacks Smackdown Live General Manger Daniel Bryan
came to apologize and to tell Kurt Angle he had nothing to do with the attacks. While Daniel Bryan was in Kurts’ office, the lights went out and a few minutes later, Daniel said something was wrong, and all of a sudden, a hand clenched into Daniel’s neck, and Kane slammed him onto the ground with a vicious chokeslam. He was then stretchered out.
Rating: I don’t think it deserves a rating, but I’ll give it a 3+
Alexa Bliss vs Mickie James
returned. Also at TLC, Mickie James took on Bliss for the title, but failed in doing so. Mickie got her rematch on Raw, which was very good. But no-one has yet to win the title against Alexa Bliss.
Prediction: Alexa Bliss retains her title
Result: Alexa Bliss survives once again
Braun Strowman returns to take out the trash
After being demolished by The Miz, Kane and the Bar, Braun Strowman was put into a garbage truck. Now 2 weeks later he has returned, to ‘take out the trash’. He came back and destroyed the Miz, and his goons, The MizTourage. They all got powerslammed, but Axel through a table.
Don’t go anywhere, we got Smackdown too!
Shane McMahon announces himself Team Captain of Smackdown Live
The night after Daniel Bryan, was attacked by Kane on Raw, Shane addressed Kurt Angle and the Raw Team, on how they would beat the hell out of them. Shane then revealed himself as Team Captain, like last year.
Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler – 2 out of 3 Falls Match Winner is added to the Survivor Series Team
These 2 have had 2 matches, at Hell in a Cell, and Backlash, now they end it. Roode dominated for the first half, then Ziggler came back, and pummeled Bobby Roode. In the end, Ziggler was about to get Roode, but he countered and hit the Glorious DDT, to win the series.
Prediction: Bobby Roode picks up the win
Result: Bobby Roode wins the 3 Match Series
Shinsuke Nakamura vs Kevin Owens – Winner represents Team Smackdown at Survivor Series
Smackdown. The week before, Randy Orton faced Owens’ best friend, Sami Zayn. Orton came out victorious, and also stopped Zayn from disrupting this match, by slamming him onto the table. Nakamura then hit the Kinshasa, to be added to the team.
Prediction: Kevin Owens is added to the team
Result: Shinsuke Nakamura defeats KO
And for the Halloween Special…
WWE TOP 5 SCARIEST MOMENTS OF ALL TIME
5– Kane sets fire to Jim Ross
In his fantastic career, Kane used to be the evilest villain in the WWE, and world wrestling. Not just in the ring, but also with his devilish mind games, he’d get into your head. During an interview, Kane was unleashed. Setting fire to JR. Although, he still appeared on the announce table, to commentate, for the next few years.
4– Undertaker throws Mankind of Hell in a Cell
Now we all know this horrific moment, in the WWE. When people think of near-death experiences, Mick Foley had thought of that happening, tons of times, but that still didn’t stop him from doing mental things. Foley was already known for being a risk taker, Taker grabbed Foley 20 feet high, and pushed him off through the announce table. You think that’s bad, after several minutes, Mankind made his way up the cage once again, and then got Chokeslammed through the steel, onto the ring. No wonder he has no teeth.
3 – Bray Wyatt’s choir
If you’re looking for a horror moment in the WWE’s history, choose this. While John Cena, and obviously Bray Wyatt were feuding, Wyatt as he always does, he gets into your head, mind games. That is one of his strongest attributes, outside the ring. The strange, weird things of Bray Wyatt, went onto a whole different level. As the children softly sang, ”He’s got the whole world, in his hands.” It creeped the living hell out of me.
2 – Papa Shango curses the Ultimate Warrior
Ultimate Warrior was a huge Fan Favourite, he was one of the most loved superstars in the WWE. Papa Shango, the witch doctor of the WWE, was definitely one of the creepiest WWE Superstars, because of this moment. When Shango placed a ‘curse’ on Warrior, it lead to him falling of the ring apron, and screaming in agony, clutching his stomach. While Warrior was screaming, Papa Shango was dancing, and doing some spooky ritual, as Ultimate Warrior went backstage, the medical staff had to check him.
1 – The Unholy Wedding
In 1999, The Undertaker kidnapped Stephanie McMahon, and attempted to make her his bride. Stephanie was tied down to a cross, with Paul Bearer having the honour of officiating the unholy wedding. Big Show and Ken Shamrock, desperately tried to save the boss’ daughter, but failed in doing so. Just as Taker was ready, Stone Cold came out to save Stephanie buy taking out Undertaker and Paul Bearer.
