Slambros: Goldberg and the Traphouse Usos Win Survivor Series
We know, you properly feel some type of way about Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Rest easy now, The Slambros are back for the 16th 12th episode and they have all the angles covered. Boman12L and Illa YC have lived through damn near a week of back to back to back to back nights of WWE style professional wrestling and there is plenty to digest. Before all that, the dirt sheets must be dug through. Shelton Benjamin gives a timeframe for his hopeful WWE return. Rick Flair visits ESPN and shares a crazy story about getting struck by lightning. Finally another story involving Booker T and questionable requests from WWE management.
WWE’s long weekend in Canada started on Saturday with NXT Takeover: Toronto. WWE home grown “indie” brand once again proved to the superior show with matches, stories and wrestlers that fully connected with its audience. DIY vs The Revival, Mickie James vs Asuka, Samoa Joe vs Shinsuke Nakamura, there was plenty to love in Toronto that night. Other than the unexpected finish of Goldberg vs Lesnar, much of Survivor Series was an acceptable WWE PPV – high spot in many largely forgettable matches. Survivor Series still had a lot of good, Bray Wyatt got a win, The Traphouse Usos are clearly more over as heel, then when they were babyfaces and Shane McMahon almost got beheaded in the ring.
RAW teases a breakup of the best friends of Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. While the Slambros are happy they didn’t split, they do wish WWE did a better job of booking their champions to look stronger. Smackdown Live also has another strong show and Boman wonders who will win in American Alpha vs the Wyatts? Listen to the show and follow us on Twitter at SlamBrosPod!
