Josh Isenberg

Big Show def. 3 Jobbers:

What I Liked:

Not much here to talk about besides rewinding about three years to try and show Big Show’s dominance. It did not work with jobbers. I would rather see him face a big guy, like an Ezekiel Jackson or someone of that build. I felt the talking back and forth was rushed, and they did not really sell how big of a match they will have at Survivor Series.

What I Disliked:

The match was awful and proved nothing to me or any intelligent wrestling fan.

Grade: D

Alicia Fox vs. Tamina

What I Liked:

The focus on Alicia Fox is out of nowhere, yet I am intrigued. It was only a matter of time, because she does have some good skills in the ring, and is a few good matches away from gaining confidence every time she steps between the ropes. Furthermore, her athleticism will make up for some of the mistakes she will make. The match itself was okay, was a little sloppy and rushed. There was no progression or smooth transition from move to move.

What I Disliked:

No offense on Tamina, but she is the most irrelevant Diva on the roster. I would rather see Fox battle with someone like a Bella or even Natalya once again. Tamina is a decent wrestler, but there is not much more essence or depth to her. You cannot gain crowd appreciation by beating someone who is rarely seen.

Grade: C-

Hunico/Epico vs. The Uso’s:

What I Liked:

Solid wrestling all around here from 4 talented guys. The Uso’s are really good, and vastly underrated. They could be a focal point of the Tag Team Division in the near future, and deserve that opportunity. Hunico and Epico are typical Cruiserweights with sound technical wrestling combined with the athletic, flying abilities to wow the crowd. They are fresh and need exposed, but will get there soon enough.

What I Disliked:

Primo somehow involved with these guys. Will they build a stable of Mexicans, even though Primo is Puerto Rican? I want to know how they decided to add him in the mix, even though he has been invisible since losing Carlito as his tag partner. Let them do what they need to do, but I guess Primo now has something to do. I just do not get the reasons. Also, why not have Sin Cara come out? Isn’t he the one in the middle of everything here?

Grade: B
