– WWF Veteran Impressed By Insane Spot In Champions vs. Champions Match At Survivor Series 2017
During a recent edition of “The Taz Show” podcast, WWF Veteran Taz gave his views on Survivor Series 2017 matches. Below are his reviews for some of the matches:
On The Usos vs. The Bar:
“I did like that match and I thought The Usos cut a great promo there in that match. I thought it was an excellent match. At the end there was a spot, one that Uso did, where he flew over the frickin’ top rope and tagged his brother. It was insane.
I have never seen a spot like that. I’m sure it’s been done before. That was ultra impressive. Homeboy just flew through the air, made the tag and crossbody block, wherever he did on the outside, one of the heels. I enjoyed the match very much.”
On The Shield vs. The New Day:
“I liked The New Day versus The Shield, opening match. I thought it was very good. I’m not sure why they had rules in the match. I mean Raw won the match. The Shield went over.
There was kind of like the tagging and….I mean I’m not one of those guys that are usually stickler on the rules and just have it be a Tornado Tag. Just kind of pull the rules or something. No DQ, no count out, I don’t know, something.”
On the Women’s traditional Survivor Series elimination match:
“I liked that the Raw women were coming out individually and if you notice they didn’t get in the ring which was smart because last we saw the attack on SmackDown by Raw. So they didn’t want to go on the ring each girl and then the SmackDown girls beat the hell out of them. So kind of protect the integrity of the gimmick. That was good.
But I don’t know why they would go face-to-face before the match starts once they’ve evened up five-on-five and the SmackDown girls and Raw girls getting in each other’s face. I think that Raw should’ve attacked them right away.
Something in this match… First of all, we didn’t see Paige. So my theory was wrong. They had Natalya come in. I really like something I didn’t expect to happen. I didn’t think of it and I thought WWE did a good job with this. It was that Nia and Tamina facing off… you know… family blood there and all. Two big strong tough women, I thought it was really cool. I liked that spot and I think that they handled the spot the right way.
Asuka won for her team. So Raw won. They are pushing Asuka to the moon, kids. I think what they should have done was had the rest of the other four Raw girls come to the ring and celebrate with Asuka at the end instead of just Asuka that won for her team.
The whole thing’s built on teamwork. Let’s put heat aside you know and angles and we all should celebrate together. So I don’t know why the other four girls weren’t in the ring with her. They should’ve did that. I just think it would have been better in my view.”
On Baron Corbin vs. The Miz:
“It was good. It was real good. Corbin won. SmackDown won. I’m happy they did this.”
– Triple H’s WrestleMania 34 Plans Changed?
As we have noted before on multiple occassions, there were plans for Old School WWF Legends Triple H & Kurt Angle to collide at next year’s WrestleMania 34 PPV.
However, that might not be the case anymore. Reports suggest that between now and WrestleMania 34, Triple H will have two PPV matches – one will be at Royal Rumble 2018 and the other one at WrestleMania 34.
Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer speculated that plans might have changed and Triple H vs. Kurt Angle might happen at Royal Rumble 2018 now and Triple H vs. Braun Strowman would be one of the co-main events at WrestleMania 34.
