Daniel Bryan may have just wrestled his final match in WWE… at least for a little while. But that’s okay because we’ve welcomed back a star that’s definitely up to his caliber: Eva Marie! We’ll react to the back-to-back exit and entrance of these two.
Plus, NXT finally gave Candice Lerae the coronation we’ve been waiting for when she and Indi Hartwell won the NXT women’s tag team titles. It was the cherry on top of a mini Ice Cream Christmas of smiles from this week, whether that’s Cameron Grimes interacting with Ted Dibiase, Karrion Kross’s magician vest or even a little dog who made a stinky.
The Main Event
For the longest time, blood was the go to way to show brutality in wrestling. But after WWE banned blading around 2007, we definitely stopped seeing color in televised wrestling to such a major degree. But now AEW seems intent to bring it back. How do we feel about it? Is wrestling enhanced by blood? Or would we rather see our fake fights had different ways of showing pain?
The Three Count:
Danielle put over Franky Monet’s dog.
Hal put over Johnny Gargano and Austin Theory.
Julian put over a NJPWglobal showcasing Yuji Nagata
