The Wrestling Week That Was, no. 7: Even as a jobber to The Miz and Big Show Cesaro entertains and connects -OR- It looks like that finally William Regal gets some recognition for all the work he does

It feels like years ago that Cesaro got his tiny little push that fell on a Friday. But also in his very short matches he’s probably more entertaining than any participant of so-called main event matches recently. Mid-week was a lot better with the debut of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa in NXT. Plus: I’m losing all of my enthusiasm for the current Dean Ambrose character. All this in the newest edition of The Wrestling Week That Was. Enjoy!

The Wrestling Week That Was, no. 6: If Dean Ambrose turns on Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, I’ll be the happiest person alive

I struggled with writing this new article / blog post / part of a series. I really did. During watching the segments I’m interested in, I made notes but later on didn’t have much ambition to write them out properly because the heat outside and me not really ambitious about it. So I somehow finally managed to connect the notes to full sentences and with each other for having just the really important stuff from last week in here. Maybe it’s better to read this way. Not much babbling from me towards the important facts. Just the facts this time. Enjoy.

The Wrestling Week That Was, no. 5: Cesaro hasn’t won against John Cena and he doesn’t care because he once won against a far better man

I’m already looking forward to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn and SummerSlam the very next day. It will be a hell of a weekend. The only bad thing about is, I’m not looking forward to watching Dean Ambrose there. It will be all about Cesaro, William Regal and Kevin Owens for me. And this past week just further proved it.

NXT TakeOver Unstoppable 15/05/20: William Regal is back fighting and still in search for some respect from Kevin Owens

If you haven’t seen this show so far, do it. There won’t be a better show this year with all around good matches and well told stories from start to finish – well, except there will be another NXT special this year. Sometimes I wasn’t pleased with the outcome but that didn’t take away from the quality of the matches.

NXT TakeOver: Rival 15/02/11: This is wrestling

We already knew that the special NXT events are indeed always special. But every other time all the wrestlers involved are even able to top themselves from the previous event. And they easily put every WWE Pay-Per-View into a dark corner of shame. The time for cheap talk is over. These shows are wrestling shows and that’s what’s best for business.
