As someone who has been watching the program I am excited to see that This will be taking place and how the fans will react and respond to the matches there. With this new season marks new opportunity and rivalries that Major league Wrestling can take to unbelievable heights. It’s been awesome to see the work MLW has done so far. MLW has also made a deal with VICE TV and will start airing there may 5th. Big things are in full swing and Wrestling fans can expect a great showing of hybrid wrestling and the different styles showcased.
For over the past decade or so WWE has made the main brand shows Raw and Smackdown look strong in the ratings. If you compare WWE main brand ratings now from 6 years ago it’s not the same. WWE has struggled time and time again to captivate and pull in audiences. This is due to talent not having enough star power or creative freedom. WWE simply wants things done by the book on their terms and it has talent left feeling controlled and micromanaged. WWE for a long time was the number one company because of the standard that performers could have some creative involvement but now in today’s world of wrestling that has changed with limits on what WWE stars can and can’t do. For that reason storylines have become too widely kid friendly and what once was a community of hardcore WWE fans has now been erased. These fans have either lost interest all together in wrestling or moved on to a better open minded product such as All Elite Wrestling. For WWE their story does not end and is still the most known company out there but can’t make a big enough impact like they used to. If WWE would go back to their old ways it would save their product for fan interest. It all depends solely on the company itself.
Yesterday MLW president Court Baur announced that Major league Wrestling will be welcoming back fans in Philly at the 2300 arena starting july 10th. This will be the Start of a new season for MLW. Jacob Fatu and contra are being advertised for this event.
At NXT Takeover Stand and Deliver Karrion Cross captured the NXT championship by defeating Finn balor. Finn balor took Cross into deep water but it was not enough to outmatch the size and strength of Cross. Now that Karrion Cross is a two time NXT champion, the question is who will be the next top contender to face Karrion Cross? One person people are buzzing about the most is Kyle O Reilly because of his outstanding performance against Adam cole at NXT Takeover:Stand and Deliver. With Kyle O Reilly being as tough and quick as they come fans can only speculate that Karrion Cross will consider O Reilly as his next challenger. It would be a pitched battle between two of NXTs greatest warriors in the squared circle. Time and fate now rest in Karrion Cross and his hands on that decision.
On Last Weeks NXT it was announced that NXT champion Finn Balor will defend his title at NXT Takeover against Karrion Cross. Finn balor has held the NXT championship for 194 days currently and has beaten the likes of Adam Cole and Kyle O Reilly. The Challenger Karrion Cross has made it perfectly clear that he will do whatever is necessary to win the title he never lost due to a shoulder injury that put him out of action. Make no mistake about it Finn balor is without a doubt one of the Best Performers NXT has to offer and will not go down without a fight but The clock is running out for Finn balor who will soon face maybe his toughest opponent yet. Karrion Cross Is a destructive force in the ring and brings brutality and violence in the squared circle. We all know that Kross has the doomsday pseudo and the Rear naked choke that he can put on balor at any point. Balor will use the apron, the ropes, and the turnbuckles for pinpoint accuracy on a move or strike so I believe the fans are looking at a huge blockbuster match because it won’t be for the faint hearted and anything can happen.
This year WrestleMania is taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida. WrestleMania is known as the showcase of the immortals and the biggest WWE pay per view of the year. With that in mind WWE is still working on the match card. Matches that should without a doubt take place are Edge VS Roman Reigns for the universal championship, Daniel Bryan VS Jey Uso, Seth Rollins VS Cesaro, and bicanca belair VS Sasha Banks. The only problem with this card is it may not get a big enough draw because if you think back to past WrestleMania events they featured triple H, Batista, The Undertaker, And The Rock and without names like that at a WrestleMania it seemly may not get the best build up missing top names in sports entertainment. WrestleMania has to have some sort of success or it won’t pull through. WrestleMania takes place April 10th and 11th so we as wrestling fans can only hope for the best outcome.
