WWE Month Review - Episode 8

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Campbell returns to the podcast with Hamish to discuss the last month in WWE in particular reviewing Wrestlemania 36 and previewing Money In The Bank.

Cheese. Welcome to episode eight of the on the ball podcast. Today on once again joined by my younger brother, chemic will crocodile. Welcome, hello, hello, hello, back for your third appearance. Yes, the third out of it. That's what about strike right, I like that. So you're probably the second most appeared guest, maybe behind Pilch, but Um. So today we're going to be talking about another one of our passions, that we have many passions in them, corcadile household, and this is one. Yeah, this is a big one that we haven't UN uncovered. We haven't uncovered this stone on this podcast yet, and that is wwe yes, the world wrestling entertainment. Lots of people have a lot of negative things to say about Dow but here we just see it is a bit of harmless fun. We know it's not necessarily real, but watch. I don't see why that can stop it from being fun. As we all know, all TV shows aren't real. So even if it's fake, the the things they do is still very athletic and is considered a sport still, and it's kind of it's some of the matches are just so cool to watch and just so like epic. Yeah, interesting to like follow along with the storylines and get like the face and the heel storylines and really attach yourself to a person. Yeah, I don't know why people are so critical of it when they find out it's fake, when every TV show you watch is fake. Even most reality TV shows aren't really real. Yeah, there's acted. I don't really get that attitude. But enough. We're not we're on the back foot early, but were proud of loving the Dow, so we don't really care. So we're going to about a month ago, early in April, the Wrestlemania, the annual Wrestlemania, told some of the wrestle manias. It is, it's an event occurred. It is the night of nights and wrestling to this time it was so big it needed to go over to nights. Yes, it did go over to night. which did you did you rate that, wrestle mania going over to night? I actually did rate that Cuz sometimes it is like seven hours long and it's hard to just keep watching and keep enjoying it. So I liked how it finished it like around twelve one ish, because it gave you like a break and instead of watching too much wrestling, which was it's a big factor of many wrestlemania's is just watching too much and it's a bit it's a bit like, yeah, I recall a few times where you you get to like the second or third last match, which are usually the best matches, and you just like can't be stuffed anymore. Yeah, and you just want to stop watching. I think there was even one time we have my mates over to watch it and we just went to the park. He didn't even for the last shots, the last match, and I think it was like Roman reigns beat in the undertaker telling we just did yeah, we didn't care because it was like the ten or twelve match or something about. So anyway, rest of ating was a bit different this year because obviously we're in a pandemic, so there was no crowd. No crowd. So because that, they moved it to the Dow Performance Center in Orando, Florida. How did you find it with no crowd? It was a bit weird because you could like clearly hear the discussions going on, but I thought that was interesting that they really had to not rely on the audience as much this year and really just put on good matches without the energy that the crowd provide someone actot. They actually did produce some Stella matches this year and I think...

...someones that were better than previous years before. What do you think of the arm so cuz is there was no crowd. It allowed the Dowe to pre tape it. Yeah, which meant they could get creative really in terms of the filming. Like you had the firefly fun house, which wasn't like a live match from start to finish, all one take. And and yeah, the undertaker match, which was also in a grave yard, yeah, which was a TV show. Yeah. So what do you think of those two matches? I actually really really enjoyed the undertake Ajo stars match, even though, well, I knew every it was scripted. But like, even no, I kind of saw how it was going, I still really enjoyed it and it was a very big production aspect that I enjoyed. The Arm Firefly House Fun Match, I actually did not really like at all. It was really it was really confusing. There was no wrestling at all except, I think at the very end break just like does this finish and pins him and that was it. But like it was really confusing to just go through like John Seen his past, and I mean it was funny to see him go back to it like Oh rapper days, but it wasn't, I didn't think was the best match. Yeah, I watch a lot of DOE Youtube and like they're all huge, like experts and nerds really and like because they're love anything the they really love the Firefly Fun House match because it was something different and stuff. And also a lot of it was based in like the history of Dodowe, which maybe was a bit before our time, so we didn't appreciate some of like the flashbacks, like there was. They showed John seen a being part of Nwo we, which was like a faction in the late s. So although I we like know what they are, it probably isn't as nostalgic for us. No, and definitely it will. I mean we knew it, like the John Seen I like rapid days, but and yeah, and like ruthless aggression and it will. Knew that. We knew those parts. But it wasn't the best. I was just kind of confused watching yeah, and yeah, I just didn't really know it wasn't really a match. Was it wasn't a match at all. It was. Yeah, so I hate to be the block to criticize a bit of creativity because, like you do have to innovate at some point to change up the game. But yeah, I think they are swung and missed with that one. I guess the fiend is pretty weird with the five flight yeah stuff, so kind of Manan. That's his rand to me. I would have liked that if that was the introch of the match and then they went on to have a wrestling match and maybe like John Seena was stunned, so it was like only a three or four minute match. Yeah, but the fact that there was like just no real wrestler kind of confused me, like I actually had to ask you after it. I was like who won, because I didn't even know. And then the Barnyard match, yeah, it was better than the fun house match, but still wasn't sure about it. But if I'm honest, I think that's more because of the undertaker, like he's getting pretty old like thing. He's almost as old as that dad, so obviously he's not like it at his athletic price line and he's not going to be doing out rageous stunts and stuff, which meant it was pretty slow paced and like they were kind of just walking around it's more like a TV show. But yeah, it was cool as epic and like the fact that gallows and Anderson got involved and stuff was cool, and there are a few therefore, there was some funny things as well. It's actually kind of funny. Aj styles is a genuine performer. So That's enough for those two matches. Lots of other things happened. So are can we just goes through the matches of wrestle mania and then we talked about how that storyline progressed through this month and has carried on too. Money in the bank. Yeah, then at the end we'll just...

...give a little money in the bank. Prediction list. So the first match in Wrestle Mania was Cesar defeated Drugulak. This it was just really didn't amount. Yeah, it's pretty irrelevant. It only went four minutes and was in the pre show. So yeah, so pretty bizarre. Goolacs currently like he's they say he's like the mentor to Daniel Bryant or something, but I'm not sure how he can be Daniel Bryan's mental when Daniel Bryan's like a five time world champ or something. Yeah, but they're in a little friendship and then Cesar's on a team like in an alliance with Shins Kay again Sammy. So that Sammy. I don't know if it was because he injury or something, but Sammy did not appear on raw smackdown this month. So I don't know what's going with that one, but may yeah, maybe it's injury or maybe it's to do with coronavirus. Maybe he's like back home in Canada or something. But yeah, so that few didn't have much part of. In the there was a money in the bank qualifying match between I think was yeah, it was King Corbin Against School Lac, and I'm pretty sure Shin's K and Cesaro came out in the tactical LAC, which helped. Call me. Yeah, I think that's what happened. That was like the only real thing that I'm progressed from that storyline and there is no match at money in the bank to do with either of them. So No, yeah, so what other dimensioned? Corbans in the money in the bank and then Daniel Bryan's also in the money in the bank. So that's really the only thing that's progressed from that storyline. So but that was the pretty show. So I wasn't really big deal. Yeah, first on the main card Wrestle Mania was Alexibliss and Nicky Cross defeated the Kabuki warriors for the Dowe Women's tag team championship and just I can standard tag team match really yes, a better back and forth and then I win. Nothing spectacular came from that match. Yeah, it's it's always an easy one to I want to go back through Wrestlemania and see how many times the tag team changes hands, because I feel like every time it's the tag teams because they want titles to change hands in pay per view so people watch. So yeah, easy one to add to the talent a tag team, but I liked it. I think the Kobookie war is a really cool team. They yeah, I prefer. I prefer Lex a Nicky Cross. They're really good team Kabuki Warriors, and I mean they're the heel, so that's their job. Term the Fan. It does hurt that they can't really speak English, so kind of hard for them to do like promos and stuff. But yeah, like they show carry saying over that because Ni Jacks came back from injury. Yeah, and she's been on a Terar as usual, and carry saying Versta twice and both times they showed Oscar out the back like cheering on. Yeah, she's very crazy, dreaming in Japanese and it was like, yeah, I'm not really sure, we're not saying copy, not yest. We got the gist. So yeah, likes of the Bliss and Nicky Cross, they are still the top champions. I mean that day the championships were like that. It was pretty obvious over the month before rest many that they were going to win. They'll kind of alluding to it over the months that they were going to get the title. Yeah, so they didn't do too much really in this month. They defended their title. This is pretty random match against Carmela and Dana Brook, which means like pretty obviously one going to lose, our one and they don't have a match of money in the bank, so they're just going to carry on their winning ways. Not really sure who's going to challenge them. Yeah, to many, so many, even many at all women's tag teams at the moment, so I don't know. Maybe someone from nxt will come or something. Yeah, I don't or partnership will form, so we'll see how that goes. All the...

...kabookie worries. Could could just yet get it back in the bank AFTERCA is in the woman women's money in the Bank Match Oscar? Yep, she beat Ruby right to qualify. She won't win. Ruby right and the other riot squad member live Morgan. They've been in a bit of a few live Morgan Beata twice and is now she and then she came out and gunned for Charlotte flair and they had a little Chan and Charle fo one, obviously, but with Morgan looks like she could be competing for the titles in the near future. She's yeah, she seems more like a front person these days instead of just like a bodyguard for other wrestlers. Yeah, it's kind of weird because riot squad and absolution, they like both came in at a similar time. Yeah, it was during like they squad takeover basically did nothing like well, absolution you had Mandy rose and Sonny to Ville. They've done a bit. Yeah, with page. Yeah, and then page obviously was injured. Yes, so she came manager. Yeah, as we mentioned just then, many rose and Sonya Deville Bay actually played a part in a wrestlemania match. It was otis to feeding dolfsigl off for man he rose. Yeah, I think. I think I was. It was a clear thing that he was going to win because he didn't come out with many rose. dolve came out with Sonya and when knew halfway thro that match, a man he rose going to come out because son need deveal is going to do something to Otis, and then many rose came out, obviously towards the end of the match, and then Otis one after that, which I thought, and then obviously they have formed a connection after that match since. Yeah, and that's kept going. Otis beat dolsy good to qualify for the men's money in the bank, where as basically ended that little feud, I think, because yes, the versed each other enough. However, many rose and Sonya Deville, they split up. Yeah, I think. Don't think they'll friends anyway. After WRESTLEMANIA. Yeah, they were like yeah, they like de Ville was annoyed at Mandy rose for choosing Otis over Dolf, but they were still like not enemies. And now, like Deville called many rose like a bitch like six times and basically said she's only popular because she's good looking. So they their feuding. So I'm sure we'll see more of that in the near future. De Ville actually cost many rose a spot in the women's money in the bank and Carmela went on to win. So, yeah, fill a spot. Yeah, cart annoyed that because I'd rather watch many rose wrestled and Carmel because I just don't want come els and may be you, yeah, I'll come. You actually like Mandy roses tune as well, though. Then, alas, defeated King Corbyn. Just another yeah, that match if you'd kind of went on for a little bit and then did for that past month, for like the next two weeks, and then alias kind of just disappeared and King Corbyn just started appearing in like all the preview matches for the men's money in the bank, basically where they do like Three v Three tag teams and shit like. So, yeah, it's very rare. Is Basically needs a new storyline pretty much. Yeah, and it's kind of weird because a lie is beat King Corbyan. So he's did, because I think that's bizarre that King Corbyn's come out of it better. Won't lie. Not Looking forward to King Corbyn in the money in the bank. Well, he won't win, so yeah, but like just not looking forward to watching restless kind of ruins every match. I was actually reading about him last night. Apparently the reason vincient man likes him is because apparently women think he's hot the like. I'd read a genuine article about that. So that's pretty bizarre. Well, he's probably the ugliest looking block I've yeah, I know. So he's King. Corbyn's in the...

...money in the bank ladder match, as he always is. Alias is doing nothing, which is pretty bizarre. So not much more was on that storyline really. Who? Becky Lynch defeated chain of Bays a little wrestle mania to defend her wwe royal women's Championship. What did you think of that match? Um, well, I think for this wrestle mania in the past, for Somnia, becky's kind of one cop out, Kinda she's won both matches with a roll up pin to win in the match. So I don't she does deserve it because she is I mean she's Specky Lynch, but she doesn't she hasn't really shown I mean she's shown she can fight, but she hasn't one big Wrestlemania match with like a disarm or like a b explode or something like that to get the pinch. She's just rolled them up. But she's beat Shanea, so she's basically beating everyone in the arm roster. So I actually don't know what she'll ye. Don't really know what's next for her. I think maybe I think like Shana. Yeah, I think Shane I will win the money in the bank and then Shane or will win the tighter Arsca, Shanea and Jack's. All three of them have been like feuding the last couple weeks. I definitely think will be one of them. You keep saying US Aka, it's Oscar. You're not even a fan bro US car, US what am I saying? Aussaka, that's freaking close enough. It's not your Oscar. You're disciplining her heritage. Then the other I doubt Aska will win, because then that just leaves carry saying. No, it's definitely between and Shane O. Nia Lacy Evans could win, but we're not down. CAN CUT MEL up. Would be lucky to get more than thirty seconds at time. Yeah, that was actually a decent match of wrestle mania, though the Becky Lynch. Yeah, yeah, they don't know if eight minutes. Yeah, they ca'm Shana Braid Shana baselos pretty brutal when she fights. Well, I mean she was a cage fighter, so she is a pretty brutal fighter. I would be so scared someone that actually fight. I was thinking like Ronda or Shane or like brock. I would be like because apparently brock is not doesn't have a very good temper and actually can hurt people like he hurt Roman. Reigns pretty bad, like he was bleeding properly. Yeah, yeah, I agree with you. I'd be scared. And Yeah, so Shane is broken three people's arms in the last month. Not legit as part of storylines, but yeah, it's she's a bully. Really, I've just realized the first nighter wrestle mania there was no match longer than twenty minutes. So maybe that was a little tactic they went with this year. I mean they did almost have twenty minutes with the undertake a match. I was like nineteen minutes, yeah, but twenty minutes isn't even that long really for a wrestling match. Like it's got for wrestling, like a forty minute. For wrestlemania match it's usually like yeah, so smackdown hasn't happened yet for this week. Yeah, so they're still could be matches, for she's on raw. So it looks like she's just not fighting. A money in the bank now. I don't think she'll fight at all. Definitely not. Yeah, so she's just going to be waiting for the winners. Yeh, sure, way for the winner show have a week off, which, yeah, it would be hard to see it being anyone other than China. I mean, yeah, if she fought, yeah, it's either NAI or Shana that will eventually beat her for the title. Yeah, but I could also see like Shane, her and Becky Lynch feuding in the next month and then I I has the briefcase and then cashes in. I mean I think she hasn't beaten Nia one on one. I don't think ever. She beat her in a wrestlemania match, but that was the help of Charlotte and Bailey. Yeah, so I know that. was that her that Wrestlemania like ages ago, when I was like the four way match or was that? That was not such a I know they'll such bank. So Sha, I don't think she's beaten nigh ever.

So I can NIA has a good chance of winning money the bank. Also, she just came back from injury and they're not just going to set up, set her up like she's been destroying the roster and then she gets to the money making she doesn't win and then she just doesn't have a storyline like she becky has like no storyline whatsoever right now. She's been in China, so she can just and China kin't even get a rematch because she wasn't the champion, so she doesn't have the rematch clause. So she cut Shane a cunt. Just be like you have to fight me again. It's I've already beaten you and you yeah, you don't have a rematch clause where? And I can be like you say, you've beaten everyone in the roster, but you haven't beaten me yet. Plot twist shown. Or I Jack's loose to ask her money. Bank become a tag team called the Bruis. I mean Becky's been and but becky's beat Mascar though. Yeah, that's true. They having exhausted that one. So basically, Beck he's just waiting for the winner and we'll see who it is. Yeah, or I Shane or nine. I think it'll be possibly now yeah, I agree, because I don't think I don't see anyone else really having a good storyline with other than I are. Yeah, it's true. Next match was Sammy Zane, as we offer mentioned, with Cesar Nakamura defeating Daniel Bryan and Goo luck. We have already said, not much happened with this story line really. I know Daniel Ryan was like dominating the whole match and then just write at the end, Sam, he's saying, they take the piss out of that. He's saying the right Sam. He's saying definitely does not book him as if he's just definitely not credible. Yeah, but he's just has a great thing and and nothing really has come from that match after what I've been watching the last twelve months of wrestling over the last like month in isolation. One think I find so weird about Sammy's Aye, even when he's a heel, like, especially when he's a heel. Sorry, he's song just doesn't fit. Yeah, he did bad guys song, because he comes out like doing his dance to his song and then he goes like you guys are a bunch of dickads, like, Oh, it's like you can't have that. Oh, how and then just beat Dickens. So that's pretty bizarre. Yeah, but nothing's really come up that we're haven't really seen. Some mean Sammy's ain't a lot that. I don't know what's going on with him. And Daniel Ryan qualified for the Yak. I think he has a good chance. Yeah, he does yet. Yeah, because he's not really doing anything at the moment. So, but I don't think he'll win. He has a good chance, but it don't. Yeah, next match was the weird triple threat ladder match for the TAG team titles, even though it wasn't a tag team match. No, it was a triple threat much. Yeah, there's a good match actually. Yeah. Well, the ladder matches aren't wrestle many are always good. They always interesting. Let's just make a match more interesting. And then at Kfee at John Morrison, you're guaranteed having a ladder match. Really. So John Morrison retained for Mizzen Morrison. Yeah, but if a weird enter the match, but I'll copy him. Yeah, and then about two weeks ago MS was finally cleared to compete. So biggie was like, well, if you guys got to fight for it, it's only fair that the other partners get to fight for it. Yeah, but they biggie one out of Jus and them is so, he got the new day like the eighth title Rainal N so. And then last week on smackdown, I think yeah, last I go on smackdown the forgotten sons, who are an nxt trio. They've been bashing a few people and they came out and bashed the new day, Lucher House Party and Miss Morrison. So can they have a good chance of winning? That was turned into a match for money in the bank. I reckon they'll win and then they'll go on to have a feud with the new day. I regret the forgotten sons win. Yeah, and I reckon that gone to a few wooden new day or new day will win and they'll gone to have a feud with forgotten sons. I think Lucher House parties just there...

...for Shit and giggles. Yeah, that's the and I think miss and Morrison I kind of over. I don't know. I feel like Luch House party, you're just going to be launched. Yeah, there's just literally going to be chucking a Canada and launched. I feel bad for them, but but I just don't think anything. I think miss and Morrison have had a good run. I just don't see them winning again or having a story with the forgotten sons coming into the story line. I just don't see him. Is Visen Morrison in the new day, who so dynamic were the heels, basically. Yeah, so it would be weird for them to pit Miss Morrison against the forgotten sons, who are like a they. The forgotten sons can't be anything but a heel. So yeah, be bizarre. So yeah, I definitely think the new day will come out of it with a feud with the forgotten sons, but I'm just not sure who win that match really. But yeah, I'LL BE EXCITING FOR WAY TAG team. I can't really see a way that it's not exciting. Yeah, they're always good, good, good time. So next was Kevin Owens beat Seth rollins. Yeah, title the Monday and Might Not Messiah went down. God, it was a good match as well. I'm so confused. Can So said roll of lost his match to he goes, drew mcatire. I want to come for that title, and drew mcon. Yeah, and it should have been Kevin Owens. Yeah, money in the bank. He's versing drew McIntyre. So, as I mentioned with Sammy's and before, it might be something to do with the fact that he's Canadian. So maybe in the pandemic he's gone back to Canada or injured, maybe. But Kevin Owens didn't appear at all this month. Yeah, I think after what Kevin Owens and I think Kevin on should definitely have fought true McIntyre, I think seth rollins. I think it just needs to have a break, like he needs to disappear from wwe for a bit. They're over working him because he is obviously ever, like he's not. I mean he's a household named for wwe fans like these days, like he's pretty big and I think they just want to drain him for everything and keep using him because, like, I don't I haven't seen like a time where he's just not in a main event match and I just think he needs to like stop for a bit. Like it's like the new randy or I reckon. Yeah, he's just always popping up and I just think he needs to like have like a month where he's not in the spotlight. Yeah, it's a great show. Maybe he can be like like rely maybe, or maybe maybe like put Kevin Owens in that match and then just chucks like seth rollings in the money in the bank and make him lose or something like that. The thing is, though, they've really built up Seth Gimmick. So, yeah, the Messiah and like. But I think if drew mcintire beats him, which I think you will, because true Mac, I reckon drew McIntyre will be champion for a while because I can't see him losing just after a month of having the title and like beating Brookless and which was pretty big, and I after seth loss. Well, he won't have a rematch clause. So I think that story line will be over definitely and I reckon Kevin Owens will fight him. Yeah, so, yeah, it must. There must be a genuine reason, because that's just bizarre for Owen speak rollings and then roll rollins just goes off and yeah, he's definitely there's definitely something going on that. I mean, yeah, he lives in Canada. He definitely has to go back home, I reckon. Yeah, so rollins, even though he's still the Monday not Messiah, changed a bit like he used to have the authors of pain and Murphy is like he's little. Yeah, but they weren't seen by Seth Rolling side until the last until last week, when Murphy came out and helped him. But, like Seth Rollins crapped himself because he didn't really realize any of them were his friends still. So he thought he was coming to attack him, but he helped him. So they're still duo really.

And Yeah, Murphy lost to drew Mack and tile last week and then seth came in and cholmed buddy lafe the AUSI. Yeah, so Murphy lost a qualification match for the money in the bank, which actually shocked me. I thought they would have tried to get him in there because he is excited. He lost a Raymus to euro as well. Hey, which I was not coughing. I'd much rather watch him now. Definitely a definitely caught Raymisterio. No, he's like sixty. Yeah, so Musterros in there in the money in the bank. Obviously Braun strowman defeated Goldberg in Gol Berg was manvers. Obviously, two minutes. Yes too, in ten seconds. That's just good. That's just a Goldberg match. These days he just comes back does like three, two minute matches and then he leaves Jack and that's the end of him. Yeah, they'll bring him back Max your watch death. It's probably a solid chance brock will get back the title, than Goldberg will come back and then Goberg will win the title and then someone who deserves the title will come back. Yeah, so stroman's versing his former power bray white. So stroman came into wwe as a fourth member of the white family. Knew he did. They've got a lot of history there and that's pretty much what they've been doing the whole month. But I think this is Braun's first single title. I can't. I can't see him loose, losing, really I can't. I can't see him losing this match from loves, the thing everyone does, of the fen but so many people love Brown streaman as well and he's becomes like a good guy in people's eyes and he this is first single title, so can't. I mean wwe can just strip your title away, definitely, but I feel like he and drew McIntyre knew these new the big new champions, will retain again. I wonder if this will be a fire fly fun house match. No, this is I says singles match side. Yeah, but it's back and tomorrow now, so they could announce it now. He's done the things an singles matches before. Yeah, but because of just the whole no crowd thing, they might. Yeah, I don't really care who wins, to be honest, that much. Yeah, I don't really care either. It'll be all right, decent. So it'll be good. Fiend will probably cause some scary moments looking forward. But yeah, that's about it really. Yeah, undertaker, we kind of take it. Talk about styles. Yeah, not much happened. So, yeah, I'm taking one. Obviously Luke gallow's color and a someone were taking so maybe they're dead. Stop, like you need to stop. Yeah, there's a time in the place and this is that you should have us. Brother, you need to stop your I love you. Your legend of the game, like your fifty five, you'll say. Yeah, your streak is still impressive, but it you've lost twice down. Yeah, it's kind of like what? It's kind of just like it's not entertaining its anymore. It's just like, oh, he's who's he going to verse this week? and He's already versed all the big stars, like his first he's that's randy. He says literally every single person. I think he needs to do maybe next year one more big match, like against someone. I don't really know. He could first someone. But yeah, he needs to stop. Yeah, he does. So he beat AJ styles, who wasn't seen in the woe until last week, and he came in in a little last chance Gauntlett many one and so lushly beat tightest. Then he made a curate's hour and then he beat Sheldon Benjamin. So you thought, Oh, she's gonna do it. Then he got disqualified against Berto CAREO. Then Creo beat Garza and Austin theory. Finally,...

AJ styles came out to everyone surprise and he won. And for me AJ styles is the favorite. For the money in the bank. It would not shock me out all of he won. Yeah, he's definitely, definitely, definitely did well. Let's be but I think Morburn and Raves duo a no chance. Daniel Bryan, I think no, he's on the back burner. But Ali, I think I'll black ye might win. is a great chance, because he's a great chance. He's I don't think he's lost really since he's been yeah, the wish him so hard, like he just every week he just versus someone and winds and wins. So it's and I think he's really I reckon. I reckon he'll win because AJ styles. See, I can't see him creating as to WHO's the big champions are now, so we have true mactno, he won't have a story. Braun Strowman, definitely not. And then you have Sammy Zane. No, and then you have who's Intercontinental, who's universe on Driday. You know, I casting any money into bay on the US? No, I reckon Alice to black because they love to push an xt stars when they joined them and roster and I think, yeah, it will be mcentire's form nxt as well. So like it would be cool to have like als the black versus true. Yeah, we'll be just something. I that's t yeah, or even alice the black versus the fiend would be interesting because they both have like kind of mysterious characters. Yeah, just sitting down. Yeah. Yeah, so, as I mentioned in there there's a few story lines that don't have anything to do with money in the bank. But lastly, he at, he's lost to the man we were talking about. Alice to black beat bobby lastly at Wrestle Mania. Yeah, because Lana told him to do another spear. And then Alice, black black magic team. Basically black mass, black mass. Yeah, thought I thought it was black masks or something. What's black magic? Is that a song by little mean, Little Byes? How Black? Yeah, so bobby lashly is just been fighting with Lana. Basically that's been his little gimmick for this month. Yeah, weird because everyone knows that Lana is married to Russev so and Russef got laid off. Yeah, so that's bizarre. And then the Garza and theory. You probably thought, wow, that's weird to mention Hamish, but Selina Vega has kind of made a little squad out of Andrade Austin Theory and Angel Gaza, and they were actual teenas they were really thought. They're called theories. Why they were bashing people this month. So that might be a thing we see more going ahead. They don't have a part to play in money in the bank. All three of them, I believe, lost qualification matches. Yeah, they're just like the little side bitches. I definitely reckon there's going to be a match or two out of tomorrow on smack down because six matches. I know there's a fatal full way tag. Yeah, but you money in the banks, but that is not many matches at all. You have about the money in the banks. I feel like yeah, so long and the they won't even be a pre show with this, though, because they're all like no, but I feel like after the to night, two days of Restle maining, they're probably like, let's go through short and sweet paper. Yeah, I'll call that. So wrest all Charles and defeating Italia. We've already mentioned live Morgan. Charlotte flair defeated Ar Ripley for the nxt women's champion. Super if you think of that stupid. This was up there for my favorite match that it was very good over twenty minutes, which is unusual for our women's match, but I really enjoyed it. I don't know, it's interesting to see Charlotte leave the Um, raw and smackton actually go down to an xt and fight they're like regularly and become part of the next roster. It's kind of just like an xt isn't net now, isn't like the Um, like the younger sibling. It's right.

That's what they're trying to arm. It's just like ECW was. It's now. It's now three shows, which I think over this year we will see that it's become raw smackdown in it, and next it won't just be runs back down. And then nxt's the one where you're like trying out for the main roster. I feel like could be, since they also added them into survivor series last year. It'll be a three brand thing and nxt will always been survivor series. Yeah, from now on. Yeah, I don't shot. It's interesting to tea shat flake it away from fighting, obviously the champions every single time. But I think I really like real and I think the re are charlotte rivalry will go on for quite a bit. Yeah, she shall kind of Weird Shit. She would go on smack down with her n xt championship and just Talk Shit, but it is like the people in smackdown aren't going for that championship. Yeah, so can she's hadn't. They wanted to stay in like the main publics. And she also has a bit of a rivalry with EO SHRAI and versed each other during the week. Yeah, and then Maria came back, I think after her leg injury and she attacked Charlotte. So they'll be definitely something there in the next and xt pay per view. Yeah, and then live Morgan just challenging shall and almost beating it. That seems a bit random, so I wouldn't be surprised if something formulates there. But shall is not doing anything and money in the bank. So yeah, she's I'm going to chill. I'm sure they won't let her lose her title to the next takeover. So No. Then the next match we haven't mentioned. Edge defeated Randy Orton, which was just a wrestle mania match. There has been no after effect. Really. Did you enjoy this like an old, old people finding? Yeah, it was. It was funny to see them go backstage and the cameraman trying to die the cousin. Yeah, the Cameeron fell over in the background and then drop the camera and then they there was like another camera and trying to run in to get the shots and he was like running so fast. Yeah, wait, with mom watching that with us? Yeah, mom came up to it. She she was even laughing and she doesn't know anything about how I was good. It was interesting to see the backstage at wwa it was. I just love them. Last man standing match. When there's you don't have to find the ring, you can go outside. Disappointing how it ended, though. I thought he was gonna Spe all our care off that big truck, like the right throw the person off the truck, but they just they just sat down. He just edge one, obviously because, yeah, edge came back at Royal Rumbull and Randy was attacking Beth Phoenix and things. So I think edge was just obviously going to win. I feel like this might be then for Randy. Yeah, I think because he had his feud with Kofi last year. Did you know? I was I was his big thing and he didn't win. Now I think he's just he's becoming a Goldberg where he just comes back because obviously he's a fan. He's been a fan of favorite for the years. So wwe knows that they can get lots of views if randy ordince and a main event. But I don't think we'll be seeing him for a while. He'll be out of it. Yeah, it wasn't my favorite match, to be honest, because it was very slow. A lot of it was just the boys just strolling through. Yeah, back like obviously they were tired and stuff, but yeah, so there was no after effects that match. The Next Match Street prophets defeated Garza and theory just another for the WWe Raw tag team championship. May I'm so confused. What's happening with the TAG team division at the moment? So on raw there is the street prophets, the war raiders are the Viking Raiders, and that is basically it. They fought each other last week and the Viking raiders defeated them, but it wasn't for the titles. And then smackdown has like seven tag teams and like the forgotten son's...

Lucha House party, missing Morrison New Day, who says heavy machinery. So I actually am so like they were playing wwe two thousand and eleven general manager and they just went wwe draft and they just took every single day team. So confused. Unless, like all, I think raw raw has less authors of paying getting brought has juicy, a big big boys. Yeah, that's true. I love Montez fords so much. Yeah, they like MVP well, because they wear read yeah, and it was in that match also introduced Bian Kabbalare into wwe row. I think she'll be something. She'll be definitely are I can shall become an enemy for becky lunch in the future as well. Actually, good shout, because I reckon she'll become definitely a big, big star and she'll be in for lots of titles against probably becky or Nia, because now I will probably win the money in the bank or Shane or something like that, because maybe you'll be like a Shana bank rivalry again, like it was in annext yeah, that could happen, but I yeah, I was glad Bianca got into the main roster because she was good at Annex Ting. No, now we're talking about it pretty weird that she's not in the money in the bank match. acually, we had big push as well this one. She won like three matches on the and yeah, I think with Nia Jacks coming back, I think all the focus was nine and I and I, because they didn't really put any I didn't really actually put any focus on Chaina Bais Lee that they just were like yeah, you can have a match for money in the bank, whereas they I did have a storyline where Naia Jacks was just going through every single person. So now I'm thinking about it I think my jacks will win that money in the bank. But a match. Yes. So I don't know what they'll do with Bianca Bella, but she definitely have brought future. Yeah, sure, Jeff, over the next few months, would definitely become in like the number one. Number two can tend to spot. Yeah, guys are in theory. I don't know if they have a future as a tag team like this. They were wrestling a lot this month, but more it's just single so I don't know what's happening there. Then we had the fatal five way elimination match for the Wwe smackdown women's championship. Bailey defeated Lacy Evans, name and Naomi, Sasha banks and to Mina, and this led to the money in the bank match, that is, Bailey versing to MENA. I'm so happy that. To me, Andy is that getting the spotlight she deserves. She's over so many years of wwe. She has been people's bodyguards. She was bodyguard for a Lee and then she was just one of those both that team called team bad. She's just she's just in that team. She's always but she's always been. I think it was such a paying this. Yeah, like Rosa menders. Are No such banks. Naomi to MENA and then and then she's really coming to the light, and I think this is good for to me, because every single person the roster has been given the chance and to me and there's never been given the chance. And now it's interesting also to see her as a good guy, because she's never been the good guys. She's always been the bad guy, and it's interesting to see that Bailey, the good guy, is now the bad guy and to me, to the bad guy is now the good guy. But I think to mean will definitely Bailey vs to mean I don't know, because I definitely see SASCHA banks turning on Bailey in the future. Yeah, it's definitely, I reckon some slim yeah, it's definitely a Bailey verse such bank situation. But I think to Mina could win the title somewhere sometime this year. I can show, definitely win the smackdown women's Championship. Definitely this show, like I can see it. Yeah, pretty bizarre really. Yeah, I think they're just holding banks to eventually...

...turn on it, because she actually lost qualification for the money in the bank match, which I thought that would be imperfect. It. Sasha one, I reckon. I reckon to mean is going to win because such I reckon to MENA will win, because such banks will do something to Bailey. Yeah, and then to me I'll win, and then Bailey and such banks will just have this non time at all, like rivalry. Yeah, yeah, that's a good point. They don't need a title really, they don't really need a time or forget. So out of that match. And then it could be I. Nope, Evans in the money in the bank. Naomi is not doing anything, so I don't really know. She lost the money in the Bank qualifier to Dana Brook which is quite a slight I mean Danna Brooks actually becoming good now. Yeah, she's a tank Sasha banks, as we said, she lost to Lacy Evans in a money in the bank qualifier. So yeah, I think they're setting that up for the yeah, and a trail to mean is obviously versing Bailey. So that's that much the fiend. Bray White defeated John we're talking about them, defeated that one. Bray White, seeing Braun Stroman John Seen is off to make some movies. Probably drew MacIntyre defeated Brock Lesner. It's just another class the match for minutes five, five or five are clay will claim, will claim client. Yeah, but I see excited to see drew Ma Couldai win as he in the past he's been in the three man band, he's been actually like one of the shittest wrestlers ever and now that he's like a genuine tank and he's like he was so good in nxt and now he's the WW champion. I think it's so drew one that and then big show came out and challenged him. Rain No idea what the point of this was. I think it's because the big show has a Netflix show coming here. Yeah, and then they just wanted some promotion for that. But, and I was so weird, six men big showed. Never feared again for the month and he just rolled and he's like you're a bitch. Just laughed him and then they just fought and he's just he hasn't even been in that yet. Yeah, it's definitely promote his netflix show. Yeah, so that was dubbles stress of any now it was a weird one. Rest. Yeah, angry runk. I had the twenty four seven hasn't appeared this month. Yeah, because I don't write. I hate that. I hate that title. It's stupid. Boy, yeah, it's stupid, but Um, it provides a couple of laughs. Yeah, but like the hardcore championship was so much better because, like it was actually wrestling, not just like roll up for the pin. Yeah. So I'm just going to quickly go through what else has happened in this month and I'll just touch on any and then pretty sure he's off. So Ricky, ricochet and central Alexander and our tag team. So they're UNLIKA. I forgot about them. They're on the raw roster, so they look like they're the third tag team. But sheking raiders. They're actually really fun to watch. QC and then Ruby riots come back, even though harsh, trash, trash. I don't know what's happening with her. MVP was in a bloody money in the bank qualifying match and lost. That's so sad. so that is so random. They definitely could have put loose black. Yeah, well then that was a done brother them. He lost you as yeah, Apollo Cruiz, oh alsw yeah, and see that all the black upon. No, he lost to a Polo cruise and then Apollo cruise got fast yeah, I felt so bad. People crashed and then he I wanted up. I wanted which way Jason. Yeah, I wanted a Polo cruise in the arm, the ladder match, because he's actually really good wrestline. I think he will become like a champion because he's the setting Apollo cruise up to be a champion if he's been qualifying for money in the bank. But yeah, a j Devera Jinder came back. Oh yeah, I'd like to eat a month injury and...

...just beat some up. No, he didn't meet around it. He beat a cure Tasaur, which I retally no be Che's. I cannot be a drumcintire genter Mahole three men band rivalry, because they'll both in three men bands. So then I'll be like true, they'll be like now is my bloody now we're both tanks. Let's fight no one except for Andrew, and everyone will go crazy. Everyone be like the three men band, and then heaths later will be like the guest. Right. That means drew us to become a kind of is a face. He is the face. Brock was the heel. Brock is always the heel. True, so you got the war raiders, as we mentioned, a street profits. That will happen sooner. Yeah, so Alexander Rick Shay. They're very exciting. So we'll see what happens with them. And that's pretty much it. Really make our predictions for money in the bank. Yeah, can we do that? Oh, and SHAMIS and Jeff Hardy. Oh, yeah, there back I saw that. I saw Cheffiso each it happened like three times. Jeff Hardy, they broke his career up into like parts, so they had like his success, then he's down for with like drugs and stuff, and then his redemption. And then each time shamess would have a match, winning like a minute and then just talk shit about Jeff Hardy. So that's lining up for whatever the next pay per viewers and I'll just be a one off thing. Yeah, I think Jeff Hardy should definitely come back and went to a SHAMIS is definitely set up for a big, big championship because over the past two months I think he has been dominating just every he hasn't lost. So I definitely think he is going to act. I reckon he'll be DREWMAC and tire's Um next big competitor. I reckon two more things from the month. Randomly, on smackdown there was like some random mystery guy and he said he promises to deliver the truth, and then it just had a montage of tag teams. So I don't know what. Maybe they'll be revealed tomorrow. Yeah. Well, no, none the forgon the sons. It already debut doesn't say. Maybe that was then. But and then triple age had his twenty five anniversary. He has been in Wwe for twenty five one. A bottle of got taken away from him, which is pretty impressive and pretty amaze. The spit. So someone just came into my middles and stuff came back for that, but obviously they couldn't be too any comeback because it's the pandemic. So That's enough for what happened in the month. Now our money in the bank. Predictions that, as we said, there might be more matches added, but back down as off made the eight, twenty and twenty. These are prediction. Three and fifty five, fifty six PM in Melbourne, Australia, Sinceanta time on a Friday. That's one. We've got the women's ladder match between USCAR USCAR SHADE, a Bas La Ni Jacks, Dana Brook, Lacy Evans and Carmela. Who are you going? We've already said Ning a Jackson. Yeah, I think she's just been she's come back from injury and she's just dominated everyone. So I think could be at such a disappointment to she's been dominating and just came back from injury. To them be like heart jokes don't come back right. Sorry to stop. I just remembered. Have you heard about the money in the bank? Know, so what they're doing. It's not a lodder match. The briefcases on the top floor of the building and the match starts on the bottom floor of the wo would in the act. You have to make your way up the building to the briefcase. Woman like you can take an Elana hiah Jackson's winning. She is arms out, legs wide, just running and she will knock anything yet night, because I was thinking if they were doing a ladder match, she hasn't really got that agility to claver got load of fuss, so I think she wouldn't have the advantage. But that that's interesting. But I think with that, I think Nia Jacks would definitely win. Yeah, and so it's to go with the new corporate ladder...

Gimmick of like you've got to climb up to the others. I assume like the seas, the COP corporate leaders live at the top. Yeah, I think not yet. Ni Jacks as my pick because they've brought her back strong. She hasn't lost. SHANNA has. Shana has lost to Becky and she hasn't this month. She hasn't even been in the spotlight. She just want to qualifying match, whereas Nijacks came back strong. Everyone was bitch shook. She beat random people, just some random matches, and then she qualified. So I think Nice's got a good so apparently on the route, on the roof, there's a ring, but so you started the ground floor and you got to make your way up and it says here that the men's and women at just a taking place at the same time. Holy Shit. So I'll be honest, I don't really know what that means. We'll just have to say is carnage. So you just have to tune into the WW network also announced that the men's and women's would take place. So just I don't trust. What does that? Well, just twelve people running. I don't get that. Anyway, no, so they would just be going the same time. Yeah, I guess it makes the more interesting, because if they just did ground for to the top for the men and then ground for to the yeah, so Nia Jacks is taking out Raymi Serio. What might I Jackson's women the men's, and she's swimming both. She's best. She's vesting drew macinti next, all right, so I'll go. I don't really want to go to the same you because that's boring. No, it's not, it's your pretty sure. Yeah, I'LL GO NI jacks. It's just because Shane is Nia hasn't our second and shaky becky hasn't beat Nia. So and she has a good reason to not want to fight Shane. And she's been like, I beat you already at the biggest stage to them all, whereas now I can be like, you haven't even beat me at it takes like three girls to beat me. So come at me, bitch. Yeah, fair enough. Next match the men's. Yeah, that's said best rain sting, that's als to black, best king, Corbett, verst Odis vers h stars. It's definitely between Alice to black and AJ styles. Maybe, probably, no, it's definitely not. Who are you going with alsa black? Definitely. I just they're both in the third spots here. I'm just going for the third picks. Yeah, Jacks is third. Also Black said. I'm just as this. They've just AJ styles after the loss of wrestlemania. I just I know it's like him winning that Guantlet match is pretty big and now he's a fan favorite, but I can't really see him winning a title that's big. Like I see Alice to black versing like Bron strowm and all, like drew Mac and Tay like. I can see that and he's been brought up from next to you and he I didn't think he's lost a match since he's been in the main roster and I just think it'd be dumb with them to just stop his journey because, ah styles, his journey's kind of been stopped. So, yeah, I want Alice to black twin, but I'm predicting AJ styles. I want. I also predict Daniel Bryant to have a feud with Alice to black. I want, and it will be called like the striker, because they're both like king strikers or whatever. I would like a leg kicks and Shit Stop. I would ww right of it. I want King Corbin wins. I'm never watching go. Yeah, I'm canceling my subscription. I want boy Ko Boyak at to win, but I think Alice to black's going to win. Yeah, because six on six on her next match we've got Braun stroman defending his title up against Ray White or the fiend. Who are you going with? Brosstrowman retains? Yeah, I just don't. I just, yeah, don't see Bray wyant winning. They just don't. Just try one of Hans, though. No, it doesn't, mate, they can't. All three of these cannot. Yeah, the TAG team title. No, but that's such a cop out from do wo. I don't care. Yeah, but watch, watch someone. And No, we're not. We said that's going to be a toile change. So we're both...

...going. Braun S Drivan, yes, yeah, but I'm going to Mina. Yeah, I'm going to me. Yes, that's the title change. There we go. Yeah, that was always going to go to Mina. Yeah, because I think, I think Sasha, I think sacial into fear Bailey. The only thing is I don't know if that little fight will happen next month or in a few months later. But there's Day tract. I think. No, I think it's now. I think it's now after you, after Wrestlemanian. How Bailey didn't even help susha banks after Lacy Evans and didn't even want her. About the ladies right? I think to Bailey is going to do but sush going to do something to Bailey, and and to me not to mean will win. I think that is I reckon. That's setting stone. And then Bailey and Sasha will have a rivalry. That's a non title rivalry. Yeah, I'm a big fan of that. And then re Ripley will come in and Bailey with Bai. That is a genius. Do you write that? No, will be nigh of us to me now, no, big gals vision the big ouse fight. Oh yeah, that's true. No, but we said going for Becky. Oh yeah, but maybe bianco goes to the backing or like the BOO boots. Maybe I won't be anchor to just win a title. She's yeah, all right. So, drew ves, I don't know. I'm going drew, drew cuse sat's got a lot of moments. Step conditions. Only had them for a month. They're not going to go crawling back to seth roll and drew mcintire, I reckon, will held it for like six months. If Seth Wins It, I'm he do'm canceling my suscript. Creative control in its contract definitely has vince McMahon's ball sack create in his hands. Or Yeah, there's definitely Lee something guy. Yeah, I care a hundred percent. And then the TAG team match. Probably forgotten sons. One of the harder ones predict. But forgotten sons or retain? I'm going the new day to retain. But they will come out of it with a feud with the gootten sons, because it definitely I reckon the title two weeks ago. So I feel like a too tighter to have. But they've already one at eight times. Excite. It doesn't matter at this point. So really, the rains, their rains don't manter. Going for the record. They've already got the recording for the longest rain, but like of all time. Yeah, you got of all time, like I'm talking individual as well. You Got Rick Flail like four hundred rains. Well, I think. Yeah, it's either forgotten sons on a new day. I'm knowing will happen. I'll go forgotten sons. I think that's what will happen with them. Is and John Morrison. I think I've now. They'll split up and the same each other. Recent I'll split up and fight each other. Interesting. Wow. Yeah, so that's our predictions for munning the bank. I'm very excited. How we going to watch it? By the way, you have school. Do I excuse me now, I can just see my school work while watching really yeah, I'm actually ahead and all my school excite or can you dad? So Watch it? Yeah, sick, because I was going to say I don't really want to wait for you off. And if it's a short well, I can't see it being longer than three hours, which for WWe short. It's see if we could to a live reaction, but that would literally take a look at three hours. And who's listening to Threehour podcast? I think that'd be a lot of silence. We could do like our short fifteen minute recap at the end of it maybe, but yeah, and just like keep that clip until the next oh yeah, that's a great shout actually, or we could just chuck it up, because then we have a fresh idea of what's happened. So then, I we could you could just say that as a slip, and then we can the rest of the any much as I'm struggling to remember half of them, and then we can talk about what's our next Pat Review, and we can what is the next pet view? I don't. I don't even know if it's confirmed. Yeah, I don't, because I looked on wikipedia in this no next. So I reckon at that logic. I'm going off as well. They don't, I reckon. They're just thinking what can...

...what kind of people use? Can we do in our in? It's some extreme rules, yeah, but it says extreme rules. It's scheduled July nineteen and that is yes, that he is away. There must be something in between. Well, what was Ly, she's all those like super showdown something. Yeah, there's. Yeah, but they can't go seees, so they're going to they're gonna just going to have like an nice super shotowns already happens this year. So who knows? Well, and they know because I usually have a cross stomping grounds. Stomping grounds was after money in the main last year, I'm pretty sure. But it's not nothing upcoming event schedule. Yeah, but if you go to Dow pay per view, don't and Otell you o events. It has money in the bank, starfing grounds, extreme rules. Yeah, well, that's a two month gap between pay per views and I just so that has to be something in there. Maybe they might just like they make some big story lines for the extreme rules. They'll just cancel streame rules. Just have four months off, summer slim. They just building the rubbery and just like massive rivalries, everyone comes back. So that's it. Expect regularwe content. Definitely at least once a month for pay per views, maybe twice. What next is the UM? Think? I think it's extreme rules inter because I just freaking right now. I think they're just waiting to confirm it to I just I just low down. I mean we'll find out after money in the bankcause I'll have them balanced like yeah, four wings to do not say song is for money. ODDS THAT UM anyway. All right, Jawnny to expect more Dodo content if you've enjoined, if you've enjoyed Campbell and Hamish just chatting. Boris the Money Bank. Twenty of ups, what shut up. Shot side of the episode. That so it's called. Thanks for listening. Got To get the gotta get gear. Thanks for listening and Hey, you next time to get there.
