The Hydden View: The weeks good, bad, sad, and more.

Posted By: Jason Hyde on Jan 10, 2015

The Hydden View: The weeks good, bad, sad, and more.

The past week of wrestling has been packed with news and excitement. Wrestle Kingdom 9 will officially be a week old shortly. TNA made there long awaited debut on Destination America, On Raw the authority returned as the build for the Royal Rumble continued. Mix in some other wrestling news and it’s been quite the week.

The Good:

Wrestle Kingdom 9- This show was easily the best thing that happen this week. As time goes on it may just be the best show of the year, but we will have to wait and see. The show was broadcast in the U.S with the help of Global Force wrestling. This has changed the way many fans look at NJPW, and there stars. The show got a boost from legendary play-by-play announcer Jim Ross, and the fast rising Matt Striker. NJPW has seemed to make a commitment to breaking into the American television market, which can only help the state of wrestling in the U.S.

TNA’s television return- TNA made their debut on Destination America with a live show from New York City this past Wednesday. The overall show was pretty good; the look and feel though was extraordinary. There was new excitement as to what TNA would offer us. A title change, heel turns, and the return of Karma left most satisfied. The opening segment with TNA stars brawling into the arena set the tone for the night. Not everything on the show was perfect but it left me satisfied and excited for this coming week.

Lucha Underground gets a Champion- This may have been the most historical moment of the week. On Wednesday night fans of Lucha Underground finally got to see who would be there first champion. The man that has been chosen to lead the company was no other than Prince Puma. This was a very exciting night, and the “Aztec Warfare” match that led to the Champion being names was a 4 1/2 star match. This was a great and critical night in Lucha Undergrounds future.

The Bad:

Monday Night Raw- The whole show wasn’t bad, there were two good matches. The first was Dolph Ziggler vs. Wade Barrett, the Second was the ambulance match. But the bad was very bad. The Authority kicked of the show and we learned quickly it was going to be a night of revenge, and a night to appreciate John Cena. By the end of the night WWE had managed to kill all the momentum that Dolph Ziggler had gained, throw Rybacks budding feud with Rusev onto the back burner, and Rowan was stopped before he got started. Let’s not forget we spent the whole night poking fun at John Cena and for a lack of better terms “trolling” him like the IWC does all week. The poll WWE conducted later that night showed the fans displeasure with over 90% saying they didn’t like the show.

WWE Announce Teams- I should probably wait and see how this turns out before I call it a bad decision. But, to me Jerry Lawler will always be Raw, moving him to another show is disrespectful. I know they have done this once before but it didn’t work out then either. Not to mention Tom Phillips really didn’t get a chance to prove himself on SmackDown before being removed. I do like the Byron Saxton move but will he be given more time than Phillips?

What just happen moment of the week:

Tyson Kidd- Although this may not have been seen by millions of fans because it happen on NXT it cannot go unmentioned. While Kidd was interviewed backstage by Byron Saxton he mentioned he chewed his cat’s food when they were sick. I know he is a cat lover but that may be going too far.

The sad:

Alex Koslov- This past week on Wrestle Kingdom 9 during the opening tag match we got to see Alex Koslov. Koslov wrestled as part of the tag team “Forever Hooligans” with his partner Rocky Romero. Sadly this past week Koslov announced his retirement from the ring. Koslov has wrestled all over the world including ROH, and TNA. He will be greatly missed in NJPW and around the world.

The ECW Zombie: Sadly we learned of the passing of Tim Roberts this past week. Tim was best known for his time in the WWE version of ECW. He wrestled as the Zombie during that time, with his most notable match coming against the Sandman. After leaving WWE he continued to work on the independent wrestling scene. Thoughts and prayers go out his friends and family.
