It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an episode of Saturday Morning Slam and I had 30 minutes to kill so I figured to rectify that and check out the first episode from 2013. Our pal Voice Over Guy informs us that the Tag Team Champions, Kane and Daniel Bryan, will be in action today…in singles matches against members of 3MB.

This was another year-end “Best Of” episode of the Slam, but I watched it for the sake of completion, so here are some brief notes and such about what went down. The show begins with your friend and mine, Voice Over Guy, telling us that that this is another “Best Of” episode and explaining that in today’s main event we’ll see John Cena take on Heath Slater, but first one half of the tag team champions, Daniel Bryan, will be in action against Tyson Kidd.

Voice Over Guy welcomes us to a very special post-Thanksgiving episode of Saturday Morning Slam and gives us a rundown of what’s going on this week before we head to the arena for our opening contest.

After the opening credits we head to Full Sail where Mauro gives us a run down of the matches we’ll see tonight. In addition Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas will sign a contract to make their championship match at TakeOver: Houston. Prepare to see a table get flipped over!

The show begins outside the Full Sail Arena. Sanity and security geeks are all laid out. People call for Regal who shows up and tells someone to get the medics as the unknown assailants run off into the night.
Inside the arena Percy Watson is like, “It must have been those ROH guys!” and Nigel McGuiness is like, “You don’t know that. It could have been anyone.” None of this matters though because the champ is here! Continue reading “NXT (August 30, 2017)”
Time for a wrestling show! Time for NXT TakeOver! We kick things off with a band called Code Orange rocking out live while some sort of video package for TakeOver plays. Code Orange is pretty good and I’ll probably check them out at some point in the future.
It’s a fine way to open the show since it’s different and doesn’t really fuck with the flow of the show the way musical performances in the middle of wrestling shows generally do.

We start things off with highlights of Ciampa turning on Gargano at TakeOver Chicago as well as Ciampa’s promo afterwards. I had forgotten how angry I was at Ciampa, but this video package did the trick and my hatred came rushing back. Johnny Gargano will be here tonight!
We also see footage from last week of sad Roderick Strong hugging his mom and his fiancee after his loss to Bobby Roode in his championship match.
No opening theme song video this week since we go right to Full Sail for action!
