Nathan ” The Knight Creature” Ketterer here!
The WWE Universe was ablaze last night as we witnessed two titles change hands( but really one – we’ll get into that shortly) and undeniably one of the best matches we’ve seen for John Cena in quite some time! Truth is, whether you like him or not, Kevin Owens, brought the fight to John Cena and finished it! This match had me on the edge of my seat! Although we’ve seen Cena bring about a decent run with the US championship, Kevin Owens is nothing new to the squared circle. He could have accepted the US open challenge, but he had good reason to turn Cena down. Already at the top of his game in the NXT division, Kevin has already got the fight, and shouldn’t have needed to acquire the US title to prove his worth any further. John Cena, on the other hand, still has to carry the weight of the WWE universe on his shoulders, proving that he is still worth being the big face in WWE. All differences aside, John Cena and Kevin Owens dominated the pay per view in my books!
Bear hugs going out to THE BIG GUY, Ryback! Honestly, to see him win the Intercontinental Championship, was truly a victory he needed to add to his resume! This was his first singles championship in his tenure with WWE, but I doubt it will be his last! Will the big guy keep the belt for long? At this point, I’m hoping he gets a decent run, at least util Survivor Series.
The divas title match was interesting, so leglocks go out to Nikki Bella. She has shown more of her worth as a divas champion, and not depending so much on her sister Brie to help her out. Personally, I was hoping to see Paige get her 3rd run with the Diva’s Championship, but Naomi dashed that towards the end, putting Paige out of the game.
No surprises in the tag team elimination chamber match, except, seeing an intense exertion between Prime Time Players and The New Day. Both teams played out a great ending, although, I felt it too predictable that New Day was going to win after all three members got to compete.
Now, going back to the titles changing hands, I will atest to saying in all rights, Dean Ambrose SHOULD be the current WWE Champion. For a well fought match, even with J&J Security, and Kane, butting in, this victory should have been awarded, by pinfall win, to Dean Ambrose. But, here’s the real question: what will happen now that Dean still has the belt? I predict Dean is going to do ANYTHING in his power to keep it! Stay tuned, as I will be delivering more bear hugs and drop kicks soon. I’m looking forward to the next few weeks, especially leading up to Summerslam.
Knight Creature Out!
