The Last Week In Wrestling #13 (Wrestling Round-Up)

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this edition of The Last Week In Wrestling, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a good week to discuss.

Best Promo:

Get Mean (Raw) – Triple H cut a good one about wanting Seth Rollins to get tough, like he used to be.

Best Moment:

The Man Whooped The Champ (Smackdown) – Becky Lynch got to humiliate John Cena and get a lot of momentum from it.

Best Move:

Lungblower (Major League Wrestling) – Teddy Hart did a great version of the move on Pentagon Jr.

Best Personality:

Triple H (WWE) – He might be a wrestler, but as one of the general managers of the McMahon family commissioners, Triple H had a good week.

Best Character:

Becky Lynch (WWE) – Lynch was even mouthier than usual, which worked out well for her.

Best Performance:

Brian Cage (Impact Wrestling: Homecoming) – Cage did great in his World Title match against Johnny Impact. Hopefully, this isn’t the last time he gets to wrestle in the main event.

Best Wrestler:

Pentagon Jr. (Impact Wrestling and Major League Wrestling) – Pentagon had three great matches in one week and, for his career, you can’t get any better than that.

Best Card:

Impact Wrestling: Homecoming – This was great on paper and excellent in practice.

Best Show:

205 Live – This hour flew by and had just what it should, which is great action in abundant supply.

Best League:

Impact Wrestling – There were a lot of strong matches from Impact this week, which might be a good omen for the rest of the year…I hope.

Best Match:

LAX (Santana & Ortiz) versus Lucha Bros! (Pentagon Jr & Fenix) – Impact World Tag Team Championships Match

My Take: As much as I liked the World Title match, there was something about this that just makes it stick out in my mind. I hope we get a lot more of these two teams this year.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

This was an excellent week that was worth the time, more often than not.
