KDouble’s Take: WWE Tables, Ladders, Chairs and Stairs PPV Review…


9 Match Card…

Pre Show Match - New Day defeats Gold and Star Dust…

Main Card…

We open with a video package setting up all of the matches for the evening. First up is the IC Title Match between Dolph Ziggler and reigning champ © Luke Harper…


IC Title Ladder Match – ©Dolph Ziggler defeats Luke Harper to win the IC Title!! - With Dolph in his hometown I really didn’t expect him to lose. But the way he won was just plain beautiful, such a brutal match that saw Z end up bleeding. This was an amazing match and it will go down as one of the best ladder matches in the history of WWE…


Tag Team Title Match – © Mix and Mizdow retain via DQ over the Uso’s!! – The Uso’s get the victory but the champs retain due to classic bad guy tactics. Miz and Mizdow were beat and decided to walk out and hit Jimmy with their Slammy on the way out causing the DQ. Good match though with a bad ending…

Now we get a Seth Rollins promo where he talks about how he will beat John Cena and how he dedicates this win to the Authority who should be in power if not for Sting. Next up Stairs Match with Erick Rowand and Big Show…


Stairs Match – Big Show defeats Erick Rowand!! -  It was another brutal match as these two behemoths beat the snot out of each other. I don’t expect this feud to end like this at least I hope it doesn’t!! But this was awesome for the 1st ever Stairs Match…

 We now see another promo for the Tables match between John Cena and Seth Rollins. That is up next!!


Tables Match – John Cena defeats Seth Rollins!! – This was a pretty good match it had everything you could want. You had a double table finish that saw the match restarted. We saw Cena win but the ref was out so we continued. Then we saw interference from Big Show (taking Cena out) and Roman Reigns (To take out Show/Rollins) to help Cena get the win. Guaranteeing we will see Cena vs Lesnar at the 2015 Royal Rumble!!!...

 A recap is shown of the Pre Show match between New Day and Gold & Star Dust. Then we go to some comments from the pre show crew. Next up is the Diva’s title match between © Nikki Bella vs. AJ Lee…


Diva’s Title Match – © Nikki Bella retains over AJ Lee!! – It what may very well be Aj’s last match with the company, these two girls put on one hell of a match. The ending was a little funny with Nikki spraying something in AJ’s eye behind the ref’s back, allowing her to gain control and win the match,,,


Chairs Match – Ryback defeats Kane!! – It was a pretty brutal match with both guys having a turn at beating the other for a few minutes. But in the end Ryback was just too much and Kane went down for the count…


US Title Match – © Rusev retains over Jack Swagger!! – This was a pretty short amatch that saw Rusev look weak early but then come through with a flurry of power moves only to subit swagger with the accolade in the end and retain the title…


Main Event TLC Match – Brey Wyatt defeats Dean Ambrose!! – Ambrose put up one hell of a fight as both of these wrestlers put their bodies on the line for what should have been up for match of the year. (Another reason the slammies needs to happen in January) The finish saw Ambrose have a monitor blow up in his face and Brey get the pin at the end of a great match…

Overall Rating: B+

KDoubles Take: My thoughts on the WWE SummerSlam PPV…


First let’s take a look at the card so far….

PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Dean Ambrose vs. MiTB Winner Seth Rollins

PPV: (IC Title Match, Singles Match) The Miz © vs. Dolph Ziggler

PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns

PPV: (Diva’s Title Match, Singles Match) AJ Lee © vs. Paige

PPV: (Flag Match, Singles Match) Jack Swagger vs. Alexander Rusev

PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon

PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho


PPV: (Main Event)(WWE Title Match, Singles Match) John Cena © vs. Brock Lesnar


 PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Dean Ambrose vs. MiTB Winner Seth Rollins: This was a match that I had high hopes for from the last WWE PPV BattleGround, needless to say I was entertained but I was not impressed. All I got was a backstage segment and a in ring segment. Hopefully we should get a actual match, and it should be a doosey with the way these two guys go in their matches we should see a lot of high spots and a brutal beating by Ambrose. I expect Rollins to win the match though, because I don’t think this will be the final match in this feud. Winner: Rollins….


PPV: (IC Title Match, Singles Match) The Miz © vs. Dolph Ziggler: The Miz exploded back onto the scene and took the Battle Ground Battle Royal by deceiving Dolph Ziggler who had thought that he won the title. This feud has not been very exciting to watch but part of that is the face that the Miz is not an exciting wrestler. Ziggler on the other hand is always fun to watch in ring so I expect this to be a fun match to watch with Ziggler dominating most of the match. But the win will go to the Miz, with a movie coming out and the Miz as the leading man no reason for him to drop the strap now. Winner: Miz ©


PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns: This is a feud I kind of can wait for it to be over; Randy Orton has given me plenty of great matches in his time in the WWE. I am not a huge fan of Orton but I can respect his talent. The only good thing I can say about this match is that it should be a brutal match. Watching these two guys go at it should make for a good match to watch. As for the winner, the winner should be Reigns mainly because he is the one on his way upward right now and that ride should continue. Winner: Reigns…


PPV: (Diva’s Title Match, Singles Match) AJ Lee © vs. Paige: The buildup has seen Paige come into her own on the mike. She has taken to the role of antagonist very well. Will she finally win her Diva’s title back at the biggest event of the summer? That unfortunately is something that I don’t think is going to happen. Unfortunately I see this feud going on another month or so, even if Paige wins the title AJ will continue to come after it and will probably be the number one contender at the next PPV. But I do believe that AJ will retain the title this time. Winner: AJ Lee ©


PPV: (Flag Match, Singles Match) Jack Swagger vs. Alexander Rusev: This is a gimmick match, so much so that even the WWE isn’t completely clear on how the rules of this match work. At Summer Slam we will find out how a superstar wins this match. The feud between Swagger and Rusev has given the crowd a reason to get behind Swagger and has made Rusev one of the most hated men in the WWE. Even though it won’t be a pin fall or submission loss I expect Swagger to win this match and basically end the feud. Winner: Swagger…


PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon: This is not going to be a match; this is going to be a fight. I expect these two women to go at it the fact that Stephanie hasn’t been in the ring in over 10 years I don’t think will affect the quality of this fight. But as for the end result I expect Brie to win via submission or pin fall, Steph will dominate the match for the bulk of it but Brie will bring home the victory. Can she do it yes she can, will she do it going to have to wait till Sunday. Winner: Brie Bella…

PPV: (Grudge Match, Singles Match) Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho: With this being the 2nd matchup between these two on a main event stage and the last match was pretty darn awesome. I expect this one to be another solid match with both men beating the hell out of each other. If you watched this week’s RAW then you know this has been a intense feud that will come to a head I a matchup that I expect Wyatt to get the win as he lost the 1st match. Winner: Wyatt…


PPV: (Main Event)(WWE Title Match, Singles Match) John Cena © vs. Brock Lesnar: In what should be the most brutal match of the PPV the perpetual good guy Cena takes on the Beast that is Brock Lesner. Cena will have will moments and there will be moments in which you think that all will be as it should and Cena will win at that moment Brock Lesnar will crush the Cenation and will take the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Winner: Lesnar ©…

KDoubles Take: Should there be a World Cup of Wrestling?...This guy thinks so…



                                                                                                                                                                                Now there are a lot of people that may disagree with me but I do think that this would be a once every four years gimmick that could work. For people who have read my columns before you know that I am not the biggest fan of TNA, but back in the early 2000’s TNA had a pretty good product. They had a lot of the originals still at their peak guys like AJ Styles and James Storm and a X Division that had the likes of Kaz and Christopher Daniels also Samoa Joe. So to my point they carried on a tournament that was pretty much what I am talking about. It was called the World X tournament and it resulted in some of the best moments and matches in the company’s history. Now what I was figuring was that the WWE could do something similar in working with the bigger independent wrestling promotions about once every four years to put together a tournament. Could you imagine it, this tournament if booked correctly could give fans matchups like AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose or Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns or even better you could have some of the top independents wrestlers facing off against the likes of John Cena and The Miz. Just use the best of the best I a 24-36 man tournament and each man will represent his own country and you could run a tag team version of the same tournament and make it a PPV. Once again I am not anyone with any kind of inside knowledge of the business just a wrestling fan  who thinks that it would be pretty darn cool to see a tournament like this put together once every four years… Cant a guy dream?...

KDoubles Take: WWE BattleGround PPV Review…



7 Match Card…



(2 out of 3 Falls Match)(WWE Tag Team Title Match) © The USO’s vs The Wyatts – Winner: © USO’s 2-1 – This match was amazing from open to close, the first fall went to the Wyatt’s and it was deserving they dominated the beginning of the match. The next two falls went to the champs and it was a spectacular match with a lot of high spots for both teams. Can’t wait to see these two go at it again!!!...


(Singles Match)(Grudge Match) Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins – Winner: Rollins via Forfeit – Ambrose attacks Rollins while he is cutting a promo backstage talking about cashing in the MiTB briefcase. This leads to HHH intervening and kicking Ambrose out of the building leading to them moving on to the next match. Rollins comes out later in the PPV and has himself announced as the winner of the match via forfeit. After accepting his win and going to leave Rollins is attacked by Ambrose and they fight into the crowd before Ambrose is escorted out…


(Singles Match)(Divas Title Match) © AJ Lee vs. Paige – Winner:  © AJ Lee via Pin fall – This match was two things a) fun to watch both girls definitely had some great spots  and gave it their all to have a good match and b) This feud is far from over as I see these two making for a nice resurgence of the Diva’s division…


(Singles Match)(Grudge Match) Alexander Rusev w/Lana vs. Jack Swagger w/Zeb Colture – Winner: Rusev via Coutout – This was a great match wit watch and the ending was a little bit chilling. Rusev knocked out Swagger outside the ring, as Swagger had the Patriot lock applied Rusev flung him into the ring post which allowed Rusev to get back in the ring before the 10 count. Post match Rusev put Swagger in the accolade to punish him…


(Singles Match)(Grudge Match) Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho – Winner: Jericho via Pin Fall – This match was amazing as both of these guys left it on the line. It took staying resilient and the eventual code breaker for the great Y2J to pull off this victory. This was a match for the ages as I will tell you that this is not the end of this feud and I for one am excited…



(Battle Royal)(Intercontinental Title Match) 20 Man Battle Royal for the IC Title – Winner: © The Miz – This was a match that was chaotic from the beginning and that was what made it so fun to watch. It took 8 guys to drop Khali and Kofi had multiple moments in this match which is why he is put in these matches. Kind of like why Shelton Benjamin was in so many ladder matches, he ruled at them, In the end it came down to Ziggler and Sheamus and just when you thought that Ziggy was your new champ the Miz sneaks in and wins becoming the NEW Intercontinental Champion…


(Fatal Four Way Match)(WWE World Heavyweight Championship) © John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. Kane vs. Roman Reigns – Winner: © Cena via Pin Fall – This was a match that was expected to bring the house down and it did exactly that. There were a lot of great spots and Roman Reigns had another breakout match in the main event of this PPV. Cena managed to survive a tremendous onslaught to hit Orton with a AA on top of Kane that was enough for him to get the three count and retain the titles…
