And let me take a second to praise how Lucha Underground treated tonight's non-title match. 9 times out of 10, I hate non-title matches. If you beat the champion, you should become the champion so when Dario Cueto told Cage that he would face Puma and if he won, he would get another shot at the Lucha Underground title, I groaned. It's total WWE booking. Beat the champion to get a shot at the champion. However, the way this match ended was perfect.

Are you saying that you think wrestling champions should be treated like boxing or UFC champions, where they wrestle once a month against a challenger who has beaten other wrestlers to earn being number 1 contender?

Yeah, kind of. Brock Lesnar is an extreme case but I like the idea of the champion not wrestling on every single show. I'm very much of the belief that the champ wrestling should be an event. That's how you make people care about your belts. The problem with Lesnar is that it went a little too far in the opposite direction where he just didn't show up for months.

Or the alternative is just the opposite,have the champion defend their title more often. I wouldn't be opposed to the idea that every week on Raw the US or IC title is defended, as long as you could keep the match ups fresh.

I'll just never understand the idea of winning a non-title match to get a match. You just beat the champion. Why should you need to beat them again? As far as earning the shot, I really like what Chikara does in that every time you win a match, you earn a point. You get 3 points you earn a title shot but if you lose a match before you get 3, you go back to zero. But there are plenty of ways to build up a challenger without having them beat the champ.

This is one of the best shooting star presses I've ever seen.

By not having Cage pin Puma and instead having Konnan throw in the towel, I don't feel like the match was given a way. A pinfall seems final and definite even if it's done by nefarious means. Cage won the match but at the same time, Puma didn't seem completely beaten. It's technically non-finish but it doesn't feel unsatisfying. The same thing can be said about Johnny Mundo vs. King Cuerno in the main event. It ends in a double count out but because of what happens after the match, I still feel satisfied.

Lucha Underground is really good.

The last month of WWE has been such a smoldering crater of unprecedented disaster that they probably deserve some sort of medal.

A Four-Way Match between him, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett for the IC Title.

Fuck, it's really all over, isn't it?

LOL

Good for AJ, by the way. Stephanie, as always, is completely full of shit. She has never put over anyone in the women's division or given a shit about women's wrestling in the slightest.

Not usually one to get caught up in hashtags but I'm glad #GiveDivasAChance is happening. Both Brie and Nikki Bella have honestly blossomed in pretty decent wrestlers all things considered but you would never it know from the sub-5 minute matches and ass booking that plagues the women's division. And don't even get me started on Emma. I know this has been beaten to death at this point but you have some wrestled their absolute ass off for a year in NXT to be "promoted" to the main roster to follow around Santino and the fucking Great Khali and then have literal 20 second matches. It's not just a matter of the women in NXT being better. The current main roster women's division is fully capable as they have fully proven elsewhere when given the chance.

I know "lol TNA" but women's wrestling is something they clearly "get" a whole lot than the WWE. They've turned ECW General Manager Tiffany into a legitimate wrestler, just had a cage match between Havok and Awesome Kong (when's the last time there's been any women's gimmick match in the WWE that didn't involve sexy Santa suits?) and are about to restart one of the more exciting women's feuds in North American wrestling history in Kong vs. Gail Kim. There are so many ways right now in which the WWE needs to get its shit together but this may be the worst of all.
