We love Alexa Bliss here at Smark Out Moment, so it is unsurprising that I am going to cite her match with Becky Lynch as the high point of the week.
On a technical standpoint, it was a decent match—an excellent microcosm representation of how far the WWE women's division has come. With the exception of anything involving AJ Lee or Paige, just two-years ago, main roster women's matches were widely regarded as a time for a "piss break". But now, I imagine that we have many a cross-legged fan once our women folk hit the screens.
Secondly, just when you think you have seen it all, Alexa Bliss pulls out a feigned injury thanks to her double jointed arms! While the faked injury technique is a common play by a heel, never has it been used to such extent that fans genuinely thought something horrible had happened to her.
Last, but certainly not least, La Luchadora's interference brought a smile to my face too. Why? Well, anything that is reminiscent of the Edge and Christian "Los Conquistadores" angle is only ever going to reek of awesomeness!
I liked the section on Raw when Bailey gave Goldust the Dusty Rhodes teddy bear, but I think that it should have been left at that. I am well aware that the wrestlers involved would have agreed to the segment, but the bear's head being ripped off by The Club seemed a tad on the disrespectful side.
I reasoned that this was a setup for The Golden Truth getting the last laugh later that night in their tag team match, but this was sadly not be. Granted, The Club needed the victory more than The Golden Truth, but with respects to Dusty, I do not feel that they should have had the upper hand in both segments.
Judging by his Twitter feed, Cody Rhodes was not informed that this would be happening either, and appeared less than happy about these occurrences either.
I know that it was done to garner The Club some heel heat and get people talking, but I still cannot help feeling like there was less disrespectful ways to do so.
So there you have it, my two choices for the week. What do YOU think are the Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat this week in professional wrestling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
