First Black Champ - Mr. Hughes Appreciation Day

NXT is going to be on USA and it brings up many questions and angles of what is next for the NXT Roster and AEW. Who's going to be the breakout stars in all this? We attempt to answer before the programs even air on their respective networks.

We talk Sasha's "cheap heat" and why Cam doesn't have a problem with it. We talk about the "Heat Check or Heat Kill" with Sami Zayn and how Bang thinks it's Great Value Rusev Day. And some how all that leads us to Mr Hughes Appreciation day!

What can the XFL do to be taken serious and survive? We take a moment to discuss on this weeks First Black Champ Podcast! #FBCPod.

This Week in WWE: A King Will Soon Be Crowned
rawlogo.png

Chris Novak: Raw is in St. Paul, Minnesota, tonight, a very rare moment indeed. The KOTR Round of 16 begins tonight, which should provide plenty of quality entertainment. Also, King’s Court with Sasha Banks is scheduled. This all should lead to some good and fun moments.

Robert O’Neill: Speaking of King, he’s on commentary tonight. So that sucks! But Roman Reigns is here. So that’s good! 

And now Dolph Ziggler is here, so that’s also bad! Not the best start to Raw.

Chris Novak: They banter a little bit because they’re wrestling against one another. That match turns out to be a pretty good one! Not too surprising, since Roman is great at the wrestling. But I’ll give Dolph some credit here too because he showed out as well. This was a fun way to start the show. Roman defeated Dolph with an awesome Spear. 

Robert O’Neill: It’s time for King’s Court with Sasha Banks! But first, we get a video package recapping last week, and then a pre-recorded interview with Becky Lynch where Becky says people are only talking about Sasha because of Becky’s interviews before Summerslam and Sasha did nothing to deserve any of this. 

Chris Novak: That promo from Becky was absolutely fire. The best line, I think, was when Becky said that Sasha is “The greatest woman on the roster to never be great.” Just money stuff.

Anyways, King’s out here and he promotes the KOTR Tourney… and before we can even get started with the segment, The Fiend arrives and puts King in the Mandible Claw! God bless The Fiend. 

Robert O’Neill: That was great. Really love how they use The Fiend to take out legends and don’t have him wrestle on TV. Keeps the allure.

We move onto a tag team match, featuring Miz and Ricochet vs. Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre. These four are in King of the Ring matches next week, so they have to get them some hype this week. It was a fun match that was Ricochet pin Corbin, which is a singles match I would be perfectly fine with at some point. 

Chris Novak: It happened in May Rob! I mean sure, Corbin won. But it happened in May! 

We’re going to hear from Sasha Banks soon even though King was disposed of. Win for all involved!

King Booker chatted a bit on Skype about the KOTR. Is a weekly Skype session with the legends going to be a thing now? I don’t actually know! But sure!

Braun Strowman faces AJ Styles for the United States Championship next. Okay! So, this match never really finishes out. The OC intervenes and beats Braun up. Seth Rollins comes to Braun’s aid and knocks both Gallows and Anderson out of the ring. He shakes hands with Strowman, who grips a bit tightly to intimidate Seth a bit but relents. I don’t know where this is headed! But I guess that’s the point? 

Robert O’Neill: WELL, it’s headed to a tag title match for Rollins and Strowman, as Seth notes backstage after coming back from commercial. That’s the main event tonight! Cool. 

It’s time for our first King of the Ring match, as Cesaro and Samoa Joe are squaring off, and they’re probably gonna beat the hell out of each other. 

Chris Novak: Look at that… they beat the hell out of each other! This was a fantastic wrestling match. Joe picked up the win after putting Cesaro in the Coquina Clutch by match’s end. If this is the beginning of what’s to come here in this Tourney, we’re in for a real treat. Seriously. 

New Day vs. Revival is happening next. Before that though, Rey Mysterio is here to address the past few weeks. The past few weeks have mostly centered around the fact that Rey has lost to Andrade a multitude of times lately. So Rey’s having an existential crisis as a result. 

Robert O’Neill: He made it seem like he was going to retire and went to take his mask off but his son Dominick stopped him and said he wants to team with him before he retires. That was nice. 

Chris Novak: It was actually! It was. That was very nice.

New Day-Revival goes down now. Hey, it’s kinda fun! Randy Orton then jumped into the scene and hit an RKO on Big E. Orton and The Revival proceeded to then go after Xavier Woods until Kofi Kingston hit the scene. Kingston, though, got jumped and attacked. Orton and The Revival hit a pretty sick triple team RKO/Shatter Machine/3-D type maneuver.

Then Orton made Kofi watch Dash hit a Pillmanizer (without the chair) on Xavier’s knee. This was a classic, 80s-style heel segment and I TOTALLY LOVED IT! I could honestly gush about this more and I probably will later this week on the pod. 

Robert O’Neill: Michael Cole interviews Sasha Banks on the Titantron and Sasha deflects the question and talks about her hair instead. Cole presses her again as to why she beat up Natalya and Becky last week and Sasha says “you’re welcome” and then leaves.

The Women’s Tag Team Champions are in action against Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville!

Alexa and Nikki win relatively quickly aaaaaand… they now have wins over the entire women’s tag division. That’s not ideal! 

Chris Novak: It’s not “ideal” but it’s nothing that can’t be heated up quickly enough. The titles are what they are at this point. I’m just glad they’re on TV again. 

Cedric Alexander (rather decisively) defeated Sami Zayn in their KOTR match. Little disappointed with that development as I thought this match was going to be better and more stretched out. But alas, it wasn’t. So Ceddy advances and will face either The Miz or Baron Corbin.

Robert O’Neill: Natalya is backstage discussing her injuries when Sasha Banks attacks her, focusing on Nattie’s injured elbow. Sasha then tells Nattie to go to hell and say hi to her dad. Whew.

Chris Novak: Tag Team Titles Match is now. Wow! Rollins and Strowman win the Tag Team Titles. It’s been a while since we’ve gone down the “Unlikely Main Eventer Pals Become Tag Team Champs” well, but I don’t mind it in this instance. Plus, I bet Seth winds up getting pinned when they eventually lose the championships. So, this will all serve its purpose and give a rub to The OC later on. I liked this! The match was pretty good too! 

Robert O’Neill: I like this! I like this a lot. Pretty clear Braun is eventually going to turn most likely. That’s fine with me. 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Robert O’Neill: These final thoughts sections get harder and harder because I enjoy the weekly TV every single week now. The in-ring stuff is always good and the storylines have been getting better and better. It’s really hard to find complaints, so I guess Raw gets an A.

Chris Novak: Strong B+ for me. This was a good Raw, not a great Raw. It checked off the boxes but it wasn’t A-worthy. But just a very strong show. They have definitely turned it all around here lately.

smackdownlivelogo.png

Chris Novak: Busy SmackDown Live on the way here. Two KOTR matches (Andrade-Apollo, KO-Elias) plus Daniel Bryan vs. Buddy Murphy. Not sure where the women fit in here, but I suppose we’ll find that out soon enough. 

Randy Orton is here to start the show though. This fresh off his awesome heel attack on The New Day with The Revival. Orton is rather angry, saying that Kofi ran from a fight. He says that Kofi’s stupid (I get it) and he gave Kofi the opportunity last week to prove himself, and he failed. He brings up that he hit him with two RKOs. He brings up last night, and he says the best part was making Kofi watch what happened to Xavier Woods.

The New Day’s music eventually hits, and Orton stares toward the screen. Kofi then comes into the ring and hits Orton with a surprise Trouble in Paradise! Kingston goes to leave the scene but he grabs a steel chair. He then goes to do the exact same thing that happened to Woods, but with a chair! That is until The Revival come out. Kingston takes care of them, but Orton gets out of dodge. 

Robert O’Neill: Oh man I LOVED that. Kofi’s bringing the heat and getting revenge for what happened on Raw is awesome. Keep this going as long as possible.

Chris Novak: They play the same video package from yesterday about the Roman Reigns saga. We’re promptly reminded that Bryan will be “bringing the culprit” to Roman tonight. Whoever that may be, at least. 

Andrade vs. Apollo Crews is next.  

Robert O’Neill: Meanwhile backstage, Kevin Owens is summoned to Shane McMahon’s office and Shane warns him not to cause a ruckus tonight or he’ll be fined again. Kevin says he won’t act out and he’s a good father and Shane’s a good father and Owens will act appropriately to protect his family. 

Chris Novak: So that was a real good match. Andrade won the back-and-forth matchup to advance in the KOTR. He’ll face either Chad Gable or Shelton Benjamin. Apollo Crews absolutely showed out in this one though. He’s really been hitting his stride lately, and that’s probably not a surprise considering who he’s faced of late. But fair play to him for making the most of his opportunities. 

Robert O’Neill: Great match. Right guy won. Things of that nature. 

Chris Novak: Drake Maverick tried pulling a fast one on Elias. But Elias gave him an order that decreed that the 24/7 Title rules would be suspended so Elias could focus on his KOTR match with Elias. Heeling!

A Moment of Bliss with Charlotte Flair is next. Hmmm… I sure do wonder… where this is going to lead…

Robert O’Neill: Charlotte starts talking about how Bayley is an undeserving champion which eventually brings Bayley out to defend herself, as she says Charlotte can say all she wants but it doesn’t matter because Bayley has the title and she’s automatically better. Then Bayley pushes Charlotte off her chair and effectively ruins Moment of Bliss. Not nice.

It’s time for Buddy Murphy vs. Daniel Bryan!

Chris Novak: Well, one week after Buddy Murphy had a TV MOTYC against Roman Reigns, he and Bryan had a TV MOTYC this week! And Bud Murph picked up the clean win! This is real exciting for Murphy as he’s clearly well-liked and getting big Ws and time to show his stuff. Match was just awesome.

Robert O’Neill: To no surprise at all, that was a great match. Kayla Braxton attempts to interview Buddy in the back but Bryan and Rowan beat him up and continue to call him a liar. 

We go back to the ring where The Revival have challenged the New Day to a Smackdown tag titles match at Clash of Champions. But first, Revival have a match against Heavy Machinery.

Unsurprisingly, Revival get a pretty quick victory despite their ribs being injured from Kofi’s attack earlier in the night. 

Chris Novak: That was a decent match. Enough for The Revival to get a quality win against an over tag team. So, it worked well for me.

MizTV with Sami Zayn, of all people, is here. Zayn says that after losing so many matches he had an epiphany. He wants to help people. One of those people, apparently, is Shinsuke Nakamura!? Zayn is essentially acting as his translator now. They beat up The Miz, seemingly teeing up Nakamura-Miz for the Intercontinental Championship down the line. Cool? Cool! 

Robert O’Neill: Big fan of a Zayn/Nakamura pairing. How could you not be? They’re both wildly entertaining, and you can go ahead and sign me up for more Zayn/Miz stuff. Not to mention, Miz/Nakamura would be a ton of fun AND is a match we’ve never seen before. 

Chris Novak: I’m honestly looking forward to this pairing. We shall see what happens here. 

KO vs. Elias is next. Beforehand, Shane told KO that if he put his hands on an official then he’d be fired. Why do I suddenly have a suspicion that he’s wearing a ref shirt underneath his shirt and he’s going to fire KO tonight? We’ll see if that’s what happens here. 

Robert O’Neill: Well, Chris was right! Owens and Elias had a solid match and then Shane revealed his referee shirt and got the original referee out of the ring, then gave Elias the win via a very fast count. Straight out of 1999!

We go backstage where Roman Reigns is set to finally reveal who attacked him and he pulls the hood off and reveals… an older version of Rowan? This must be a ruse! The show ends.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Robert O’Neill: These final thoughts sections get harder and harder because I enjoy the weekly TV every single week now. The in-ring stuff is always good and the storylines have been getting better and better. It’s really hard to find complaints, so I guess Smackdown also gets an A.

Chris Novak: SmackDown get an A- from me. There were great matches and storyline advancements. This was a better show than Raw this week in my opinion, to no one’s real surprise given what happened on this episode. Buddy Murphy’s rise is fun as hell to watch right now and I look forward to him vs. Ali next week.

WWE SummerSlam 2019: Results, recap, analysis, ratings

The Biggest Party of the Summer is in the books. An eventful night in Toronto is in our rear view, as the 32nd SummerSlam was filled with excitement, surprises and great action. Rob and Chris are here to talk about what went down, and what it all means going forward.


Drew Gulak vs. Oney Lorcan - WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Chris Novak: Drew Gulak defeated Oney Lorcan to retain his Cruiserweight Championship. This was a very good sprint. Not surprisingly, considering the fact that both Drew and Oney have been top shelf performers this year. Drew won with a torture rack neckbreaker. So Gulak remains champ and has defeated yet another notable face in the division. I wonder who could be next for him. ***¾ 

Robert O’Neill: That was very good and makes me want to start watching 205 Live, because Drew Gulak is awesome. I wish they would have gotten a little more time, though. ***¾

Buddy Murphy vs. Apollo Crews 

Robert O’Neill: This is a fun match that probably wouldn’t have gotten time on Smackdown. Both guys looked good, but the big story was when Rowan came out and attacked Murphy for telling Roman Reigns he was the attacker. Continuity! Rowan powerbombed Murphy into the ringpost as Daniel Bryan looked on from backstage. That was great. *** for the match.

Chris Novak: The match itself was obviously short but it served its purpose and help advance a storyline. It’s kind of wild that they’re doing that at a bi show like this, but I’m not really mad at it either. **½ for me, although that’s not a knock against them.

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs. Billie Kay and Peyton Royce - WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships

Chris Novak: Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross retained their Women’s Tag Team Titles, defeating The IIconics after Alexa hit Twisted Bliss on Peyton. This was a really fun match! Alexa did a Buzz Lightyear laser spot (because she was dressed up like Buzz Lightyear). The IIconics did their damn thing too to be honest. Peyton hit a very smooth Gory Special that nearly did it for them, but Bliss was able to kick out. I liked this match! Short, sweet, to the point, fun action and some enjoyable comedy spots. ***

Robert O’Neill: That was fun! Alexa and Nikki appear to be faces now which is neat. I think this was the best match The IIconics have had in a while, and I have high hopes for Nikki and Alexa with these titles. ***

Becky Lynch vs. Natalya - Raw Women’s Championship

Chris Novak: Becky Lynch retained her Raw Women’s Championship after making Nattie tap out to the Dis-Arm-Her. Holy surprise, Batman. This match was really good! These two told a great story in this match with some really good limb work and finisher steals. I’m legitimately impressed and surprised. This may have even been Nattie’s best match ever. **** 

Robert O’Neill: I think it WAS Nattie’s best match ever. That was really awesome stuff from both women. Becky brought the heat after struggling a bit the past couple months (IMO). Can’t believe they got me to like a Natalya match. ****

Dolph Ziggler vs. Goldberg

Chris Novak: Goldberg hit one of the best Spears ever and beat Dolph within two minutes. That was hilariously great.

Robert O’Neill: Ziggler talked shit on the mic from his back, and then got speared AGAIN, and then talked shit on the mic from his back again and got speared again. That was all so good.

AJ Styles vs. Ricochet - United States Championship

Chris Novak: AJ Styles retained his United States Championship against Ricochet. Styles had an awesome counter on Ricochet when he dove off, and grabbed him and hit the Styles Clash on him. This match had some awesome stuff from both. Ricochet dressing up as Nightwing was also terrific. **** for me. Not sure where Ricochet goes from here, but that will get sorted out later. 

Robert O’Neill: AJ retaining is perhaps a little surprising, but they could definitely keep this feud going and I’d be fine with it, as I say about mostly every opponent Ricochet has. Just good stuff all around. ****¼

Bayley vs. Ember Moon - SmackDown Women’s Championship

Chris Novak: Bayley retained her SmackDown Women’s Championship after hitting a Bayley-to-Belly off the top rope. The match never really hit another gear but they did the absolute damnedest they could to make it good and fun. They succeeded to a point. It didn’t really feel like there was any drama here, which makes sense considering that Ember was a handpicked challenger and the feud got no real time to flourish. Maybe they run it back next month at Clash of Champions. Maybe they won’t. Who knows? Nevertheless, good match. ***½

Robert O’Neill: That match was about as good as it could have been. I don’t mean any disrespect to either performer. There was a ceiling and they met it, much like Chris said ***¼ here.

Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon

Robert O’Neill: Owens overcame the odds with Special Guest Enforcer Elias to defeat Shane McMahon and keep his job. Owens did most of the work, as the crowd was super hot for him. A ref bump caused him to take Elias out with a chair, then kick Shane below the belt before hitting a stunner for the win. ***¼

Chris Novak: Say it with me… common… sense… PREVAILS! ***¼ for me here too. Did the job without being too extra to be honest. And that’s fine.

Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus

Chris Novak: Charlotte Flair made Trish Stratus tap out to win the match. God damn this match was really good! Trish took a BEATING at the start of it, but resiliently fought on and picked up steam. They did a great spot with Trish using the Figure Eight on Charlotte. She nearly put her away with the Stratusfaction, but Charlotte was able to kick out. This was quite, quite good. I don’t think it was the best main roster women’s match of the year like some may call it (the Rumble title matches are still a cut above to me). But this was still REALLY, really good. ****¼ for me. 

Robert O’Neill: What an incredible match. I also probably wouldn’t put it above the two Royal Rumble matches, but it’s also the best Trish Stratus match of all time and one of Charlotte’s best ever, as well. Whew. ****½

Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton - WWE Championship

Chris Novak: This match ended in a double countout. It was otherwise REALLY good, though the lack of a clean finish probably took some people out. But they were always going to stretch this feud out. And with MSG on the horizon as the go-home to Clash of Champions, they were always going to use that site to help set up the next match. I liked this match a lot and the lack of a clean finish didn’t particularly perturb me. ***¾ 

Robert O’Neill: I don’t mind the double countout! It extends the program and gives them a chance to run it back, like you said. I think there’s a lot of potential here. ****

Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor

Chris Novak: Holy… Bray Wyatt had an incredible entrance. His theme music is remixed from his original theme into a total death metal version of it. The match itself was short and one-sided. Not sure what grade to give this one to be honest. But, it was entertaining. 

Robert O’Neill: Also, he’s using the mandible claw as his finisher, apparently! But, yeah. Hard to grade it based on what we saw.

Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins - WWE Universal Championship

Chris Novak: We have a new Universal Champion, as Seth Rollins picked up a (CLEAN) win over Brock Lesnar to win back the Universal Championship. What a freaking match this was. The pacing was awesome. The near falls and drama injected here was fantastic. Some great spots in the mix. The crowd was hella invested. My goodness, they worked an AMAZING match. ****¾ for me here. Just fantastic. Take your disrespect for Brock and take it somewhere else y’all. Same thing with Seth.

Robert O’Neill: As I type this in my Brock Lesnar shirt, I’m surprisingly content. Would I like to see him win? Sure. But for Seth to win this way, after getting his ass beat twice in two weeks and getting his ass beat all over the ring, means so much more than using a chair and low blows to beat him like Seth did at Mania. This might have been my favorite Rollins match ever, and is one of my 10 favorite Lesnar matches ever. *****


FINAL THOUGHTS

Chris Novak: A very solid SummerSlam. Not an all-timer, even if it had two really great matches in Charlotte-Trish and Rollins-Lesnar. But still a very solid show, top to bottom. No low points were had, and the event flowed really well. It even only went 3.5 hours! I’ll give this a solid B+/A-. Real good show with high rewatchability.

Robert O’Neill: Just like every other WWE PPV this year, this was a great show. We didn’t even mention the fact that Edge appeared on the preshow and speared Elias, Ric Flair had a segment with the Street Profits, and Bret Hart wished Seth Rollins luck. There was so much going on, and the show absolutely delivered and has me looking forward to what’s next. A

The 2019 WWE Top 25: July

Seven months through the year 2019, there have been 729 televised matches on WWE TV. So needless to say, we’ve got ourselves a pretty big sample of how things have gone this year. Over the course of the year, as you all know, I’ve been tracking matches and developing a grading system to rank the WWE superstars based on their in-ring work. It’s provided some surprising results, and some not so surprising ones. And having crossed the halfway point last month, and beginning to trickle towards the fourth quarter of the year 2019, things are likely fixing to get even more fun for the WWE Top 25.

You know how the protocol goes by now, and I am not going to waste any time. The only difference here is that there will be no more match rankings in these posts. You can find the match rankings in separate posts from now on here on The Barber’s Chair Network.

The July WWE Top 25

1. Kofi Kingston (20.75)
2. Samoa Joe (20.5)
3. Drew Gulak (20.25)
4. Shinsuke Nakamura (17.75)
T5. The Revival, The Usos (17.25)
9. Big E (17)
10. Bobby Lashley (15.75)
11. Braun Strowman (15.5)
T12. AJ Styles, Ricochet (15.25)
14. Cesaro (14.75)
15. Xavier Woods (14.5)
T16. Elias, Matt Riddle (12.75)
18. Jack Gallagher (12.5)
19. Nikki Cross (12)
20. Dolph Ziggler (11.75)
21. Oney Lorcan (11.5)
T22. Daniel Bryan, Otis Dozovic, Seth Rollins (11.25)
T25. Apollo Crews, Becky Lynch, Kevin Owens (11)

To no one’s surprise, Kofi Kingston was the top performer of the month of July. Kingston wrestled in six matches this past month, just one behind the lead held by Dolph Ziggler, Nikki Cross, Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins who all had seven. Kofi’s 20.75 points just edged Joe and Drew Gulak, who had 20.5 and 20.25 points respectively. The name of the game for Kingston was consistency last month, and he got the top spot for that reason.

Shinsuke Nakamura really returned to form in July. His late push from the middle of the month onward got him the 4th spot on the rankings for July. Nakamura, the Intercontinental Champion, has been putting in serious work on TV and it’s helped his cause tremendously. If this run continues, he could very well make a strong push for Cumulative Top 25 candidacy very quickly.

The WWE Women’s Top 25

1. Bayley (82.5)
2. Becky Lynch (62.5)
3. Nikki Cross (55.75)
4. Alexa Bliss (38.5)
5. Bianca Belair (37)
6. Sasha Banks (34.5)
7. Charlotte Flair (34.25)
8. Io Shirai (32.75)
9. Shayna Baszler (31.75)
10. Mandy Rose (31.5)
11. Carmella (30)
12. Nia Jax (29.25)
13. Asuka (28.25)
T14. Lacey Evans, Peyton Royce (28)
T16. Naomi, Ronda Rousey (25.5)
18. Natalya (25)
19. Kairi Sane (23.75)
20. Sonya Deville (22.25)
T21. Billie Kay, Toni Storm (22)
23. Mia Yim (21)
24. Sarah Logan (20)
25. Ember Moon (19)

The Top 3 in the Women’s Top 25 suffered no real setbacks. The three leaders in match numbers are also the three leaders on the chart, as Bayley, Becky Lynch and Nikki Cross have set the standard for the women’s division this year on WWE main roster programming. Bayley’s absurd point total is one that likely will not get caught, unless somebody goes on a monster run. With time working against most of the women’s division now, that likely won’t happen. It’s a wonder if anyone will even catch Nikki Cross’ 55.75 points at this point, let alone Bayley or Becky Lynch’s totals. Though Cross of course has a chance to pass Becky, if anything.

4th place might come as a surprise to you. Alexa Bliss now sits in 4th in the rankings after the month of July. Bliss accumulated 10.75 points last month, and after picking up 11.75 points in June, Bliss’ 22.5 points after the last two months have allowed for her to pick up serious ground. She’s doing so while not even setting the world on fire, really. That’s not even me trying to discredit her or anything. She’s worked 11 matches on TV and PPVs the last two months. None were given anything higher than 3.75 points. Anybody could probably be doing this right now. It just so happens that it’s Bliss, and again, it’s not like she’s doing anything tremendous, or that she’s even as bad as her critics suggest that she is. She’s doing more than fine right now, and more than fine is enough for her to climb the ladder at the moment.

As far as everyone else, August will be intriguing. Io Shirai and Shayna Baszler are easy candidates to see take leaps after TakeOver: Toronto, and Charlotte Flair will likely (and finally) pass Sasha Banks after her match with Trish Stratus at SummerSlam. Mia Yim could also rise up into the Top 20 at least, and Ember Moon could make some moves too. Will anybody else step up? We shall see.

The WWE Top 25
(Through July)

25. Becky Lynch
Points: 62.5

Becky Lynch has had a good year. Not a great year, but a good year. Maybe even very good if you’re into that kind of designation. I think she’s been handed some poor opponents and it’s probably hurt how her in-ring work could be. But I can only work with what I have in front of me. Her TV work has been disappointing this year and maybe that will change in the latter part of the year. Still, this is a victory lap title reign and no one should really feel too slighted.

24. Kevin Owens
Points: 63.375

KO has been hitting home runs all year, really. His TV match with Drew Mac on SmackDown last week was awesome and was one of the best TV matches all year. We’ll see how things shake out for Owens at SummerSlam against Shane McMahon. But Owens hasn’t really missed at all this year. His 2019 has definitely been fun to watch.

23. Rey Mysterio
Points: 64.125

Rey really needs to get into a groove again. I don’t know where to really peg him right now on Raw, but we saw how he can perform on SmackDown earlier this year, even at his age. Mysterio’s been bit by the injury bug a bit and that’s definitely held him back a bit. But I expect him to rise up as the rest of 2019 goes on.

22. AJ Styles
Points: 65.25

AJ Styles proved what he could do at Money in the Bank back in May. But I think that, even with this recent character change, he’s still missing that third gear that we’ve seen him tap into in the past. Maybe age is catching up o him a bit. That said, SummerSlam offers up the perfect opportunity for him to make a serious move and have another standout match this year.

21. Oney Lorcan
Points: 67.25

Oney Lorcan is having a tremendous 2019. Between his work on the NXT brands and 205 Live, Lorcan is easily one of the best things about WWE Network broadcasts this year. I can’t think of one bad match that he’s had this year. He’s appointment television every time that he gets into the ring, pretty much. He’s been super fun to watch.

20. Drew Gulak
Points: 67.5

Drew Gulak is another guy who is having an awesome year. I wish he was actually off the 205 Live island at this point honestly. He could probably do really great things on Raw or SmackDown Live. He has the in-ring skills and the personality to really become a star. Maybe it happens in 2020. But for now, I’m really liking his Cruiserweight Championship reign. He, too, is appointment television right now.

19. Johnny Gargano
Points: 67.625

You know the drill. Gargano has a great match, he falls a bit after not working, then he rises up again. Set your watch to it. It’ll happen after TakeOver this weekend.

18. Matt Riddle
Points: 68.375

Matt Riddle is in the Top 25 despite working only 12 matches this year. That’s the lowest match # of anyone in the Top 25. Imagine if he was working more?

17. Baron Corbin
Points: 70

Baron Corbin has worked 29 matches this year. He’s only accumulated 70 points. By comparison, everyone who has worked more matches than him (Bayley, Drew, Kofi, Ricochet) is in the Top 10 or, in the latter three’s cases, the Top 5). That should probably tell you all you need to know.

16. Dash Wilder
Points: 71

15. Scott Dawson
Points: 71.5

You know the drill here too. The Revival have been one of the best tag teams on TV. The only reason that Dash is behind Dawson is because he worked one less tag match this year. None of this is surprising, and they should remain mainstays here as long as they get TV work.

Dawson worked the one match at the Rumble, as you all know.

14. Jimmy Uso
Points: 76

13. Jey Uso
Points: 76.5

The Usos have certainly been one of the best tag acts on WWE TV this year. We shall see what happens to them after their recent run in with the law. For now, they stand as the best tag unit in WWE at the moment. Like The Revival, this has not been a surprise at all.

12. Andrade
Points: 79.625

I would like to see Andrade wrestle more. You would likely want to see him wrestle more too. His program with Apollo Crews has been fun to watch. Yet, I want more. Hopefully the fall brings more prosperity to him. But his standing here, despite not working any major programs, should tell you all you need to know about him.

11. Bobby Lashley
Points: 79.75

I, for one, am tired of the disrespect for Bobby Lashley. Lashley has been seriously very good this year and should probably get a more prominent spot in the pecking order on Raw. He’d certainly be better than Baron Corbin was. Maybe he’ll be a foil for Seth Rollins after SummerSlam. I’d like to see that.

10. Bayley
Points: 82.5

What else can you really say? Bayley’s having an awesome 2019 and has a showcase match at SummerSlam against Ember Moon that she’s likely going to win. Bayley fans, myself included, have been living their best lives this year. Side note, preemptive “eat it” to you, Toronto. You know why.

9. Cesaro
Points: 86.25

Cesaro has very seamlessly transitioned from being a great tag worker to being a great singles worker on Raw. That isn’t surprising, but it’s been fun as hell to watch nonetheless. He should remain a very consistent mainstay in Top 10 territory as the year progresses. Perhaps you should take note of what he’s doing this year if you’re not really paying attention.

8. Finn Bálor
Points: 90.5

The workhorse lately of WWE is likely to take a break after SummerSlam. That will likely hurt his standing. But hey, rest up Finn. You’ve put in a lot of work these past few years, and your services are very much not taken for granted.

7. Seth Rollins
Points: 92.75

Seth might not be having the year that he had in 2018. But he’s still been rather good. I think he’s missing another real standout match beyond the one that he had with AJ Styles at Money in the Bank. If all goes well, that match could happen on Sunday at SummerSlam against Brock Lesnar. We shall see, but he’s certainly got the ability to pull it off. Despite what you might hear otherwise.

6. Samoa Joe
Points: 94.5

Samoa Joe has had a very good 2019. His forte might not be singles matches anymore, but his work in multi-man matches has been terrific. He’s getting by and staying here by staying in that 3-3.75 range. And that’s just okay for him right now. Appreciate him while he’s here.

5. Drew McIntyre
Points: 96.75

Drew Mac might not have ‘it’ but what he does not lack is in-ring prowess. He’s having a very good in-ring year that was highlighted in the aforementioned match against Kevin Owens this past week on SmackDown. That match ruled and helped him gain 4.25 points. He’s now just 3.25 points away from the 100-point club, and he could very well join that on the final stops to SummerSlam.

4. Aleister Black
Points: 97.625

Aleister Black is finally back in action. He worked two matches in July and is now just a couple of points shy away from 100 points. He’ll be working at SummerSlam also against Sami Zayn, which has the potential to obviously be a very good match. I actually like the fact that he’ll be an ‘attraction’ going forward, as it allows him to rest up after working a ridiculous amount in the early portion of the year.

3. Daniel Bryan
Points: 102.625

If rumors are correct, Daniel Bryan will likely stay in the Top 5 after SummerSlam and perhaps all the way through August as well. All the superlatives still apply for Bryan. He’s one of the best of all time and he’s proving exactly why again this year.

2. Kofi Kingston
Points: 123.75

Kofi’s just having a fantastic 2019. We already talked about it before in this post, but it just really needs to be said again. I’m looking forward to his match against Randy Orton at SummerSlam. There’s a lot of emotion to tap into there, and we could very well see another high quality banger with the WWE Championship on the line.

1. Ricochet
Points: 160.25

What can you say? The man who’s worked the most matches this year has the most amount of points this year. Ricochet has had a terrific year and is likely not to be caught unless he’s somehow slowed down. We’ll see if that happens, but I’m not counting on it to be honest.
