Match #1: Sami Zayn def. Rey Mysterio – Semifinals of the King of the Ring Tournament

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

A disgruntled Dominik Mysterio opted to hang in the backstage area while his dad Rey Mysterio battled Sami Zayn in the opening match of the 2021 King of the Ring Tournament. Dominik soon emerged, however, and when Zayn attempted to untie the turnbuckle to use against his father, the young Mysterio climbed up on the apron to tie it back up. This caused a distraction that allowed The Master Strategist to roll up Rey in the final moments and advance to the Semifinals.

The Verdict: 8 out of 10

Final Verdict: 6/10

I had a hard time deciding here, because of our four matches, only two were good and of decent length. The men were given time and they were able to make fine use of that time. Carmella and Zelina Vega won? Mr. Ed: That sounds stuuuuuuuupid, Wilbur! BANG! Me: In Canada, they’ll eat you. Andrew Gold: He wore his mother’s clothes and kidnapped the Czarrrrrrr!!!!!! OOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Oh what a lonely boyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!! BANG! Me: You allowed The Golden Girls to happen! Vince allowed this middling show to happen. That being said, he also allowed Rey and Sami to wrestle. Finn and Cesaro wrestled. The opener and the closer were great matches of steady pace and great zeal. Zeal: Zayyyyy!!!!!! Zelp ze zet za ziss zrom za zrose zall zday! Zoooooooo!!!!!!! BANG! Me: We’re not doing “z” jokes anymore! Zicky Dice: Zar zou zurrrrrrrrre? BANG! Me: Zicky? Zicky? Zicky?! Why is your name still stupid?! Also, you’re dead…because I shot you. Boy did the first and last match carry this show one hold at a time. Edge challenged Seth Rollins to Hell in a Cell at Crown Jewel. Bianca Belair put Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks through a table at the same time. Bianca Belair: I’m the EST! BANG! Me: You hush! Mr. Freeze is trying to watch the movie! Mr. Freeze: One more diamond my love…one more! BANG! Me: Pussy. Diamonds Are Forever! Shirley Bassey: Diamonds Are Forever! BANG! Me: That ain’t no invitation! James Bond: So you’re the little devil that’s been… BANG! Me: F–k off, whore! I’m glad to see the men and the women get a tournament. What I’m not happy about…is having to wait for Sonya Deville to return to the ring to fight Naomi next week! I’m just ever-so pissed! Mussolini: Tappa tappa tappa! BANG! Me: Lace’s out! Einhorne: Any last words, pet detective?! Me: Finkle is Einhorne! Einhorne is Finkel! Finkel is Einhorne! Einhorne is a man! Look! I can see Captain Winkie! Mr. Ass: I’d like to ASS the Captain a few questions. Got lube? Are you a top? Can I be your b–ch?! Me: I felt like a b–ch having to watch the non-wrestling portions of this show. All I want is some good matches. All you want is for me to make sense. Well, I guess we’re both s–t out of luck. I loved the first and last matches. That’s something to keep me alive. Imohtep: Imohtep! BANG! Me: Don’t say your own name, water-head boy! Edge: I’m gonna get revenge on Seth Rollins for breaking into my home and trying to end my career! BANG! Me: Get a job! I’ll see you next time.
