Luger's run only began on 4 July. SummerSlam was in August, and he still won by countout.
Asuka, on the other hand, had her two-and-a-half-year (!) Undefeated Streak. She was the 'Empress of Tomorrow'. She got pushed harder than anyone in WWE not called 'Roman Reigns'. She won the First Ever Women's Royal Rumble. She got to beat the RAW Women's Champion(Alexa Bliss) less than a week before WrestleMania! She squashed everyone from Nia Jax to Charlotte to Ember Moon to…
And then Mania comes. And she loses clean by submission! When Carmella cashed in her MITB, and won the belt right after Mania, it seemed easy money that Asuka was getting the belt sooner rather than later. But shots at Carmella had her coming away empty-handed. And now, the 'Empress of Tomorrow' isn't even on the SummerSlam card!
(Don't get me wrong, I still think she'll get one of the Women's belts in the next year, but that Monster Jebus Push sure crashed and burned.)
How did they like working with each other? Did Flair have a problem dropping the belt so soon? Did the NWA want Flair to be champion longer, and that is why they ended their relationship with the belt and WCW?
Also the feud seemingly ended with a DQ at Halloween Havoc and then it was dropped. Was there supposed to be more?
with all the gobs of money from TV, saudi's and network i had a question about house shows.
are these big money makers? are they necessary in this day or like are they just a bone to throw to smaller towns to keep interest up?
do you see them cutting down on shows why or why not?
Someone in the Reddit universe fed a bot a year worth of RAW recaps to see what it would come up with. If Vince McMahon doesn't immediately make Baron Corbin's gimmick that he can't stop walking backstage, then we've learned nothing from this exercise.
“This is awesome!” Clap clap clap clap clap.
I loved Seth sarcastically laughing.
My missus & I are up to night 5 of the G1 so far. Other than the shockingly good Yano Toru matches so far & maybe fellow Kiwi Jay White’s wins over Okada & the Ace, the story for me so far is Suzuki’s 0-2 start to the tournament. Which all got me to thinking, has there ever been anyone wrestle at the age of 50 as Suzuki has for 2018 so far? The dude is incredible!
