This blog predates Jack Swagger's gimmick shift by a year. I named it after Hulk Hogan's entrance theme.

Real American Wrestleblog Live Reactions – Extreme Rules 2015 – Tag Team Championship

leave a comment »

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd defend the Tag Team Championship against New Day’s Big E and Kofi Kingston.  Does Xavier Woods ever wrestle?  Natalya and Xavier Woods are at ringside for this one.  After Woods interfered in the #1 Contenders match to help Kingston & Big E beat the Lucha Dragons, this is the first of two heel vs. semi-heel matches of the night along with the Divas Championship match to come later.  That makes things interesting.  I wouldn’t rule out a potential face turn for Cesaro & Kidd soon.  They are super over and with Jey Uso out of action, there is an opening for the top face tag team on the roster.

Kidd and Kingston start things off and exchange some tie-ups before tagging out to both Big E and Cesaro and it shifts to a power vs. power match.  Cesaro ends up running the ropes and Big E goes for a Leap Frog, but Cesaro catches him and Powerslams him.  Is there anybody that Cesaro can’t catch or toss in any given situation?  I have yet to see him miss a catch or fail to lift somebody yet.  They switch back to Kingston and Kidd and Kingston knocks Kidd out of the ring and then cheap shots Cesaro, Drop Kicking him off the ring apron and Kidd is playing it up as a potential face turn as he dives out to the floor, taking out Kingston only to then get flattened by Big E.  Woods antagonizes the crowd during the New Day Sucks chants – “What did we do?  We’re winning!”  Kinda funny.  Kingston & Big E are allowed to double team Kidd in the ring for whatever reason.  Crowd gets behind Kidd as he tries to battle back, but Kingston gets a Dropkick and a near fall.  Tag to Big E.

Big E starts clapping.  Guess he thought there weren’t enough New Day chants.  He goes for a Big Splash, but Kidd rolls out of the way.  Kidd goes out to the ring apron and Big E tries to run him over, but Kidd drops out of the way and Big E crashes out to the floor.  Tags are made to Cesaro and Kingston now and Cesaro runs Kingston back and forth across the ring, delivering multiple Clotheslines in multiple corners.  Big Clothesline for a near fall and then goes for the Cesaro Swing.  Instead he catapults Kofi into the corner.  Kofi springs back at him, but Cesaro makes another incredible catch look easy and slams Kofi.  Tags Kidd and hits a Superplex and Kidd comes off the top with a Diving Elbow Drop for a near fall.

Kingston battles back and tags Big E.  Big E with a dive out to the floor, flattening Kidd.  Puts Kidd back in the ring.  Back Body Drop from Big E on Cesaro.  Big E back in, tag to Kingston, double team maneuver for a near fall as Cesaro breaks up the cover with a Junkyard Dog style Headbutt.  Kidd puts Kingston in the Sharpshoter, but Big E breaks it up.  Kidd with a Double Footstomp on Kingston in the corner, tag to Cesaro.  Cesaro knocks Big E off the apron.  Cesaro Swing into a Dropkick for the double team.  Cover, but Woods distracts the referee.  Natalya pulls Woods off the apron and slaps him silly.  Series of run ins and people are knocked out of the ring, leaving Kingston with Cesaro and Kingston Schoolboy with a Handful of tights on Cesaro for the three count.  New Champions.  New Day steals the titles and the crowd gives them some more New Day Sucks chants.  If it hadn’t been for those chants every week after Wrestlemania, New Day wouldn’t be the champions.  The fans did that one to themselves.  WWE views any reaction as a good reaction, so when you respond with New Day Sucks chants, WWE sees that as a plus and sees the angle as working and as a result, they are now the champions.
