The Last Week in Wrestling #25 (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 another good week to look at, so let’s see if Iron Man dies in Avengers: End-Game/kisses himself.

Best Promo:

Zayn-Mania…Still Doesn’t Care (WWE) – Sami Zayn cut another great promo that made continued to make his heel turn from the last year or so even better. The idea is Sami keeps telling the fans to go to hell, because they are what makes him so depressed. It might not sound that intriguing, but it is.

Best Move:

Double Under-Hook Power-Bomb (Major League Wrestling) – Gringo Loco did one hell of a version of this move to Puma King to end their match against each other.

Best Moment:

Drake Strikes First (Impact Wrestling) – Eli Drake finally betrayed Eddie Edwards in a very satisfying attack, which was due to the whole thing having a few months to gestate.

Best Personality:

Drake Maverick (WWE) – Didn’t I see him on 205 Live at some point this week?

Best Character:

Lucha Bros: Pentagon Jr. and Fenix (Major League Wrestling and Impact Wrestling) – These guys are as electric of personalities as are around today, with this double-shot of the brothers making for twice the reminder of how interesting they are.

Best Performance:

The Briscoes: Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe (Ring Of Honor) – The Briscoes channeled 1970s Crockett-era tag wrestling to really make a big impression in the ring.

Best Wrestler:

Finn Balor (WWE) – Wrestling in two great performances this week, Finn is without question, the big star of the week.

Best Card:

Monday Night Raw (WWE) – Raw had a really strong assemblage of matches that may not have reached their full potential, but it is still worth giving credit to regardless.

Best Show:

Major League Wrestling – With nearly every match delivering the goods, this league had a great show.

Best League:

WWE – Vince McMahon had a great week with numerous cards and matches delivering on what they promised….again.

Best Match:

Oney Lorcan versus Cedric Alexander (WWE) – This was a strong match that made the main event of 205 Live stand out amidst all the rest.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

This was a good week that had a few great matches and some very enjoyable ones along the way as well.
