So I’m finally getting around to watching these NXT UK episodes. Curse WWE for creating a four hour block of grapplefuckery on Wednesday nights, all of which is pertinent to my interests! Anyway let check out some citizens of the United Kingdom grappling with each other!

WWE Mixed Match Challenge (September 25, 2018)

Time for another installment of the only main roster show I watch regularly: MIXED MATCH CHALLENGE! This is the September 25, 2018 installment which I missed because I moved and was redoing the interior of my new place and was staying somewhere with shitty internet for about a month. BACKLOG BAYBAY!

Scarlett Bordeaux, Keyra & La Hiedra vs. Lady Maravilla, Lady Shani & Vanilla (AAA September 7, 2018)

I’m not even going to front. I totally watched this because the preview image on YouTube was Scarlett Bordeaux sticking her ass out at some luchadora. The match itself wasn’t that great. The luchadoras worked hard, Bordeaux was hot and did some basic pro-wrestling moves and took a sloppy looking armdrag and then got out of the ring while more accomplished grapplers did flips and shit.

The middle section of the match had Bordeaux’s trio clear the ring and beat down anyone who tried to get back into the ring. They eventually get sent out to the floor by Maravilla, Shani and Vanilla who then more or less repeat the spot.

The finish of the match saw Keyra hit Lady Maravilla with the Code Red to get the pin.

Winners: Keyra, Scarlett Bordeaux & La Hiedra

Like I said everyone worked pretty hard here. Scarlett Bordeaux was probably the worst worker, but did what she needed to do and then got out of the way for the most part. [**]

The Conquistador vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dr. Winston Von Voorhees vs. El Hombre Sin Nombre vs. Franz The Belgian Waffler vs. Gregor Valkan vs. Stanislav The Squeezer vs. The Chilean Sea Bass vs. The Sultan of Shawarma vs. Thunder Montgomery (WWE RAW October 8, 2018)

So the WWE is heading back to Saudi Arabia for some more of that sweet, sweet oil money and this time around they’re apparently having a tournament to determine who the best wrestler in the world is. Baron Corbin, the Raw GM, decided to hold a ten man battle royal, the winner of which would get a spot in that tournament.

He put himself in the match and then filled the remaining nine spots with enhancement talent in 1980s style ethnic gimmicks. The match would see the return of WWE Legend The Conquistador alongside this bevy of local talent pretending not to be local.

The match was pretty much exactly what you’d expect. Baron made short work of the job guys while the Conquistador chilled on the outside. Conquistador then came in at the end and laid waste to Corbin with German suplexes and tossed him out of the ring and then revealed himself to be none other than Kurt Angle who picked up the win and qualified for a chance to get that Saudi money!

Winner: Kurt Angle

On occasion I like goofy bullshit like this. For an angle this match did it right since they kept it short and had the heel end up looking like an idiot. It also gave a bunch of dudes a chance to get on TV which is good for young dudes (and Flash Flanagan) trying to get that money! [NR]
