Fight Theater: Seth Rollins and Austin Creed vs. The Natural Disasters

It’s the combination of one of the greatest teams that have never tagged together – as far as I know. I’m talking about the combination of former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Tag Team superstar Xavier Woods a.k.a. Austin Creed.

Rollins has been in tag team matches with Creed as part of the new day – the former WWE champion is dubbed “Cap’n” by the group, but him Creed were never a tag team on the main roster or in NXT.

Today, Creed and Rollins take on former World Tag Team Champions the Natural Disasters, Earthquake and Typhoon at Halloween Havoc. Note, they aren’t actually playing themselves. I believe Creed is playing as “The Perfect 10,” Tye Dillinger while Rollins selected the “King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura – sorry I refuse to call him “The Artist.”

The Halloween Havoc entrance is gorgeous, especially when Nakamura makes his entrance to the ring. It’s really cool seeing the Natural Disasters come out together. I wasn’t a huge fan of theirs as a kid, though I was glad they defeated Money Inc. – who beat my favorite team the Legion of Doom – to win the World Tag Team championships.

This is a fun video that includes an apperance from WWE broadcaster Corey Graves – also known as Sir Graves. If you haven’t had a chance to view the roster, the duo go through the various ratings of each WWE superstar, Legend and Hall of Famer. I think my favorite quote from the video is before the match when Rollins says “I’m so happy Bam Bam Bigelow is rated higher than Baron Corbin.”

There’s also Graves’ quote of “I was the Glass Joe of WWE 2K15.”

Rollins is the cover athlete of WWE 2K18, which is on sale. I am still waiting for the Nintendo Switch version to drop so I won’t be making this match anytime soon.

Fight Theater: Asuka vs. Dana Brooke

The debuting Asuka starts her historic undefeated streak against Dana Brooke at NXT Takeover Respect. This would be an impressive showing for Asuka and the beginning of a fantastic run in NXT for the Empress of Tomorrow.

Fight Theater: 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match for the GFW X Division Championship Low Ki Vs. Sonjay Dutt (Champion) GFW Slammiversary XV

From S***load of Wrestling

In the early days of TNA Wrestling, the TNA X Division was one of the biggest rocks in the foundation of the company, featuring exciting matches from wrestlers of all calibers and experience levels competing in high speed, hard-hitting encounters. Two of the wrestlers who helped define that division were Low Ki and the GFW X Division Champion Sonjay Dutt. Both wrestlers competed in impossibly quick matches where one or both men could out-quick or out-maneuver several wrestlers despite their smaller stature.

On April 20th, Sonjay returned to Impact Wrestling in a six-way match for the X Division Championship. During that match, Dutt sustained an eye injury at the educated feet of Low Ki, who went on to win the match. As Dutt continued to heal, he made it clear that he would continue on his quest to take the X Division Championship from Low Ki. During a match in India, Low Ki sustained an eye injury of his own during a match against Caleb Konley. Afterward, Dutt and Low Ki had an encounter where Low Ki asked for a shot at the championship. In that match, Dutt defeated Low Ki, and would defend the championship at Slammiversary XV in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match.

It’s a special LIVE review at the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles! Brian Zane, Steve & Larson and special guest Rob Fee review the 1991 TV pilot for “Tag Team” starring Roddy Piper and Jesse Ventura!

Fight Theater: Triple Threat Hell in a Cell

Going in Raw’s Steve and Larson continue to show gameplay of the upcoming WWE 2K18. This video features a triple threat match between NXT women’s champion Asuka, Nikki Cross and Ember Moon inside a Hell in a Cell!

I’ve said it before, but this game looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to see how it turns out on the Nintendo Switch.

Interdimension Tension in the Human Year 2017

It’s finally time fight fans – Interdimension Tension in the Human Year 2017.

Going in Raw’s Steve and Larson have their WWE 2K17 blow off pay per view where wrestlers from FUN/WGPW and WSTEVWW clash for supremacy. This card includes Larson Libre champion Captain FUN Wrestling against Hannibal Hanson, Ulysseus vs. Butch Bacon, a fatal fourway match between the Empires of Pain, Boss Hoss vs. Heel Supreme and the epic rematch between Top Notch Superbest and Mecha Santa for the Haitch championship.

It’s a good card with a pretty epic main event.

Fight Theater: Steve and Larson Check out WWE 2K18

Going in Raw’s Steve and Larson took a trip to WWE’s Archieves to playtest WWE 2K18. The duo said they would be releasing videos of their various playthroughs and here are the first two.

From what I’ve seen this game looks really good. The wrestlers are detailed, the entrances are stellar and the arenas and backgrounds are better than last time. As a wrestling fan, it’s a little surreal to see competitors like Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong making their WWE 2K debuts. I’m planning on buying WWE 2K18 when it drops for Nintendo Switch.

For this match, Steve and Larson play Backstage Brawl with Finn Balor and Demon Finn Balor. In addition to playing this crisis of Infinite Finns, Steve and Larson explore the various backstage areas and interact with digital WWE superstars.

This bout is an eight-man ladder match at the ECW One Night Stand arena. ECW Originals Lex Luger, Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura, Tye Dillinger, Baron Corbin, Ultimate Warrior, A.J. Styles and Scott Hall. OK with the exception of Hall, none of these guys were in ECW.
