Three Matches Announced For ACTION Wrestling Show 3 (Friday, August 17 2018 Tyrone, GA)


We are just under a month out from ACTION Wrestling's next show in Tyrone, Georgia (Friday, August 17, 2018 7:30 PM.)

So far three matches have been announced and unsurprisngly the card is shaping up nicely.
  1. Austin Theory v AC Mack--Mack has been on both ACTION shows, and is a man that Tyrone loves to hate. Austin Theory was to be in the main event of the very first show, but was unable to appear due to scheduling issues so he's making his ACTION Wrestling debut. I am very excited to see him in person.

  2. Dominic Garrini v Cain Justice--Two returning stars here as Dom faced Gunner Miller in the main event of the first show, and Cain had a fantastic match against Fred Yehi.

  3. Slim J v Ike Cross--In a match that was released exclusively on The Wrestling Brethren Podcast this week, Georgia indie veteran Slim J returns to ACTION taking on the dynamic Ike Cross.
All three of these matches have the potential to be really freaking good.

That Extreme Rules Main Event: Rollins V Ziggler

Saw a lot of chatter about how bad Extreme Rules was last night, and I disagree with that. What I will say was that the main event left me completely flat.

When it was rumored that Lashley v Reigns would close the show I understood it. I knew they were playing with fire as it related to the live crowd, but I figured that program was worthy of "show closing shot" status.

Obviously, Lashley v Reigns went on much earlier, had some layout issues, but ended up being an entertaining affair.

I had joked on Twitter earlier in the day that I could see closing the show with Rollins (he's been white hot for a while now), but there was NO WAY I could see having Dolph Ziggler close it. With that mentality the main event was starting off on the wrong foot for me anyway.

Once it became clear that Rollins v Ziggler was the closer, I tried to give it a shot. I figured a) Rollins closes the show standing tall or b) there would be some major angle to close it instead. Unfortnately, WWE gave us c) Dolph Ziggler retains the Intercontinental Championship.

So...what's my issue here?

The biggest issue is that Dolph Ziggler is an absolute zero. The only thing that makes him even remotely interesting is standing next to Drew McIntyre.

Lashley Is Now Bob



WWE.com mistakenly had him listed as Bobby Lashley so I fixed it.

Roman Reigns In 2018

For the most part I have stepped out of the neverending Roman Reigns War that is raging on Twitter.

Mostly I just make jokes, and don't really spend any time debating the whole Roman Reigns "thing" anymore.

I still see all the nonsense out there though, and it caused me to stop and think about how The Big Dog is presented in 2018.

This made me realize that while the Anti-Roman Crowd still rages on about ratings, and how "He's shoved down our throats" WWE is giving us pretty much the exact Roman that his fans have wanted for years.

That transition started on the Raw after WrestleMania 32 in the angle that led to AJ Styles getting his shots at the WWE Title. To me there is a clear delineation between how Roman was presented before and after WrestleMania 32.

WWE 2K19 Ronda Rousey Pre-Order Trailer

2K hit it out of the park with this Rousey Pre-Order Bonus trailer. I hope this means that "Rowdy" Roddy Piper himself will be back in the game.

He was one of the legends that I always liked having in the game who has been absent for a while.

While we are at it, if you're not familiar with the connection here Rousey was very tight with Piper. Her gear is a direct tribute to him, and he was A-OK with this. She talked to ESPN about this back in 2018.

If you're really out of the loop, Piper passed in 2015.

Anyhow, check out the trailer...

Roman's Dive On Last Night's Raw

Cool spot, but it looks cooler in slow motion. I think they did a pretty good job selling Roman v Bob at Extreme Rules last night.

As I said on Twitter (@S_ATL_Wrestling) last night, Sami Zayn and Roman had a big role in helping BRAUN. Both have helped Bob as well.

SummerSlam Rumors Involving WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar



Rumors being what they are I would take this with a huge grain of salt. That is no reflection on IWNerd.com by any stretch either.

For the sake of this post, let's just assume this is true. IF it is I don't get this plan at all.

Unless you're going to have Roman FINALLY beat Brock for the title I would not book this match at all. Even if your plan is for Roman to beat Brock I probably don't book this match for the third time in 2018.
