Welcome to “The Grade Book”, a new weekly look into the matches (and some segments) in professional wrestling. I am “Mr. V” Anthony J. Valvo and I will be alongside WWE Superstars/ROH on Sinclair/FCW Recapper and Co-Host of “The Wrestleview Independent Roundtable” Jason Namako to provide our “grades” for each match that was aired on television for the past week. World Wrestling Entertainment, TNA Impact Wrestling, and Ring of Honor will be highlighted weekly in this feature. We may also include matches from Florida Championship Wrestling & TNA Xplosion.
Jason and I watched every match from the WWE, TNA, and ROH from March 17 – March 23, 2012. We will provide a couple of sentences as thoughts and give the readers a Grade Point Average or GPA. If you are not familiar with a GPA, it is based on a point system from 0.0 to 4.0. We then will give it a letter grade based on the quality of the match.
The contents are as follows:
Mr. V and Jason Namako provided a grade for ROH on Sinclair, WWE Monday Night Raw, WWE NXT, WWE Superstars, TNA Impact Wrestling, and WWE Friday Night Smackdown. Those shows are part of the weekly rankings.
Jason Namako provided a grade for Florida Championship Wrestling & TNA Xplosion.
Mr. V and Mr. Namako’s GPA Scale
4.0 – 3.6 – A
3.5 – 2.6 – B
2.5 – 1.6 – C
1.5 – 0.7 – D
0.6 – 0.0 – F or INC
After our Grade Book is opened, we will then offer what we thought was the Show of the Week. We will award two points for the show of the week and one point to the runner-up, similar to what the “Mr. V” columns were in months past.
Now remember readers, this is completely subjective. There is a difference between the words “objective” and “subjective”. If you don’t know what that means, look it up on dictionary.com.
So, let’s begin.
Ring of Honor on Sinclair (aired March 17th)
Best Segment: The interaction between Kevin Steen & Jim Cornette to set up Steen’s match with El Generico this weekend on iPPV.
1. Adam Cole defeated Chris Silvio by pinfall with the Florida Key.
Mr. V: I thought the match was very spotty, but effective. Personally, I thought Cole was going to win the match a lot earlier, but he appeared strong in the end. I say bring Silvio back to ROH as a character-loaded jobber. Grade: 1.8
Jason N.: It was OK, but it did not do a good job at getting over Cole as this new singles star when Silvio was getting IMO, way too much offense on him. Silvio is only an enhancement guy, so he should not be having a competitive match with Cole. Think this did more to hurt Cole than to hurt him. Grade: 1.8
Overall Grade: 1.8
2. Ring of Honor Television Champion Jay Lethal defeated Roderick Strong w/Truth Martini in a “March Mayhem” Qualifier with an O’Connor Roll after interference from Michael Elgin backfired.
Mr. V: I usually am wowed when I watch a ROH main event, and sadly I was not impressed with the main event match. It needed some “pizzazz”, but other than that the exchanges and kicks were plenty, but not special to be a memorable match. Grade: 2.0
Jason N.: It was a much better match than their Glory by Honor match from November because they worked a much faster pace and had a good series of nearfalls towards the end. Match never lacked any real lull in action as Strong and Lethal both worked hard to put on a better effort than the previous effort. Finish was interesting as to me, it definitely sowed the seeds for a break-up of the House of Truth down the line. Only problem with the match is that its happening on iPPV in 2 weeks. Bad booking on ROH’s point there, but the match itself was good. Grade: 2.3
Overall Grade: 2.15
Florida Championship Wrestling (aired March 19th)
Note: Mr. V was not able to watch Florida Championship Wrestling for March 19, 2012.
Best Segment: The stuff with the Divas with their post-match brawling and the brawl between Audrey Marie & Raquel Diaz. Good way to finally put some storyline behind the FCW Divas.
1. James Bronson defeated Dante Dash by submission with a version of the Tazmission.
Jason N.: It was a complete and utter squash to get back over Bronson as the street fighter bully. Thought that was done pretty well, especially in the backstage vignette later on in the show. Grade: 1.2
Overall Grade: 1.2
2. Audrey Marie & Kaitlyn defeated Paige & Sofia Cortez by submission when Kaitlyn submitted Paige with a full nelson using her legs.
Jason N.: It was a way better effort than in recent weeks, although not case in point with Audrey Marie. Completely deadpan on the sell to the point where it was laughable. Paige & Cortez worked well as a team and Paige for a first time out, did really well on the control section, most notably with that nifty submission she put on Marie. Kaitlyn was extremely good off the hot tag and you could see some definite chemistry with her and Paige. All in all, solid Divas match and the post-match did a good job also at setting up an actual storyline for all of them going forward. Grade: 2.0
Overall Grade: 2.0
3. Kassius Ohno defeated Xavier Woods by pinfall with the KO elbow.
Jason N.: It was solid, but it lacked a little bit to me. I thought Woods got a little bit too much offense on Hero, while Hero I don’t think got enough. Hero did good, however, with showing off the striking ability and getting over the “KO” nature to him. But, for a debut, it was off a little bit to really help Hero get over. Grade: 1.7
Overall Grade: 1.7
4. FCW 15 Title: Richie Steamboat (c) & Mr. Antonio Cesaro went to a 1-1 tie. With the tie, Steamboat retained his FCW 15 Title.
Jason N.: It was OK, but unlike the Sandow matches, Steamboat seemed a bit off to me on the FIP and all-around babyface work. His offense was fine and Cesaro was solid on the control, but the fire and selling that I had saw from Steamboat in the Sandow matches was missing in a way here. Hopefully, he can pick it back up. Nothing wrong with the in-ring work, just wished that babyface work from Steamboat could have shown here because it would have made for a much better match. Grade: 2.0
Overall Grade: 2.0
WWE Monday Night RAW Supershow (aired March 19th)
Best Segment: The opening promo with CM Punk where Chris Jericho continued to poke him with his family’s past alcohol and drug issues.
1. “The Big Red Machine” Kane defeated “The World’s Largest Athlete” The Big Show by pinfall with a top rope Chokeslam after interference from Cody Rhodes.
Mr. V: This match featured a lot of power, but ended pretty abruptly for good reason. This was to carry on the feud between Cody Rhodes and The Big Show. Grade: 0.9
Jason N.: More of an angle than an actual match to get over the Rhodes-Show angle heading into WrestleMania. Not much to the match at all other than Kane’s top rope chokeslam. Grade: 1.3
Overall Grade: 1.1
2. David “A List” Otunga w/Interim WWE RAW General Manager & Executive VP of Talent Relations John Laurantis defeated WWE United States Champion Santino Marella w/WWE Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long by pinfall with the Verdict.
Mr. V: The match was not great, but not bad for a comedy segment. The story was told that Team Johnny had the upper hand when it came to the battle of captains. Grade: 1.0
Jason N.: Good comedic stuff at the beginning with the pose downs and it was a good way to get Otunga over as an actual threat heading into the Mania match. Grade: 1.5
Overall Grade: 1.25
3. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan w/AJ defeated “Long Island Iced Z” Zack Ryder by submission with the LeBell Lock.
Mr. V: I thought this was booked well. Ryder is not in Bryan’s league in positioning, but I enjoyed the quick chain wrestling it helps Ryder make his case to be on Team Teddy. Bryan ends the match quickly, and is tuned up for his match with Sheamus. Grade: 1.3
Jason N.: So, in Ryder’s 1st match back, he loses in 2 minutes clean to the World champion. I know its the world champion, but Ryder should be made to look better than this. He did get some hope spots in, including that vicious Broski Boot, but this match helped no one. Grade: 1.4
Overall Grade: 1.35
4. John Cena defeated “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry by pinfall with the Attitude Adjustment.
Mr. V: Cena could have just packed it in after the car accident, but he had a good match against Henry. While Henry had the advantage and brawled well during the match, Cena matched him on power. I really enjoyed the finish. While The Rock is promoting ‘Mania with promos, Cena is backing up the ‘Mania match by competing against the odds. In my opinion, this was solid. Grade: 2.4
Jason N.: If Cena would have more of these matches, I think he would get over a whole lot more. Henry for the 1st time in months looked like the unstoppable force he was on Smackdown last year and Cena was great as a FIP. Great match all around. Grade: 3.0
Overall Grade: 2.7
5. “The Great White” Sheamus defeated The Miz by pinfall with the Brogue Kick.
Mr. V: The match lacked flow and it hurt my grade for this contest. I think Sheamus needs to simplify himself and be simple on the power moves (he struggled with the Plunge move that he does). The Miz stayed relevant in our minds thanks to another solid showing after struggling the past few months. The Miz was very technical, working consistently on the upper body. Sheamus used the power game, but was risky. Grade: 1.6
Jason N.: This is Sheamus vs. Miz #5 in the last few months. Miz did look a lot better than in recent weeks, so that is a plus. But, the exact same result that has been in all of these matches makes me feel that Miz is the new Jinder Mahal for Sheamus. Grade: 1.9
Overall Grade: 1.75
6. “The Show-Off” Dolph Ziggler & “The All-American American” Jack Swagger w/Vickie Guerrero defeated Kofi Kingston & R-Truth w/Aksana by pinfall when Ziggler pinned Truth with the Fameasser.
Mr. V: I thought there was a lot to like in this quick tag match. R-Truth has a good moveset for a hot tag, Kofi improved as a Face-In-Peril, and Vickie does anything to make sure her clients are at the top of their game. My only gripe was the transitions. They were very subpar. Grade: 1.8
Jason N.: Very sloppy match. These guys were just not on their game on this night. The finish was greatly botched. Its unfortunate because I know these guys can do better. Grade: 1.4
Overall Grade: 1.6
WWE NXT (aired March 21st)
Best Segment: The interaction of CurtiMax & Kateman where we found out that Matt Striker was taken away and held ransom was very entertaining.
1. “The Cape Town Werewolf” Justin Gabriel defeated “The Party Starter” Curt Hawkins by pinfall with the 450 Splash.
Mr. V: The match was a bit too quick, but enjoyed what I saw. Hawkins was impressive in the limited time with his quickness. Grade: 1.7
Jason N.: Short but solid match. Not much more I can say to it than that. Grade: 1.9
Overall Grade: 1.8
2. “Mr. No Days Off” Darren Young defeated Jimmy Uso w/Jey by pinfall with the Gut Check.
Mr. V: I enjoyed this match. It was simple, and sometimes those types of matches are good enough. Jimmy Uso lacked a bit of awareness when going for moves off the ropes. Young was satisfactory working on Uso’s neck. Grade: 2.2
Jason N.: Another solid match. Better than the match Young had with Jey the previous week. Young was more on his game on this outing and Jimmy did a good job on the comebacks, showing some good babyface fire. Grade: 1.8
Overall Grade: 2.0
3. “Showtime” Percy Watson defeated Tyler Reks by pinfall with the Perecution.
Mr. V: For the first time since doing this article, I had to watch this match again. The first time I was distracted due to Maxine and Regal. When I muted the commentary, what I saw was a good match that featured Watson’s power and Reks’ ability to work the arm of Watson. Watson controlled the “flashiness”. I hope both can continue the progress. Grade: 2.1
Jason N.: Grade is hampered only because this match was a complete afterthought to what was going on with Maxine & Regal at the commentary table. Please guys, worry about the action in the ring and do the other stuff backstage or in its own segment. Real pet peeve of mine. Grade: 1.5
Overall Grade: 1.8
4. Tyson Kidd defeated Michael McGillicutty by pinfall with a Slingshot O’Connor Roll.
Mr. V: This is my match of the week. McGillicutty has finally clicked after years of disappointment, and controlled the match with Kidd by brawling around the ring and was technically sound at working the back of Kidd. Kidd’s quickness is there, but maybe he was a bit too quick in a spot or two. Overall, it is a match that I would recommend to my readers. Grade: 3.1
Jason N.: Very good match and a much better showing than their last match. Kidd is really getting comfortable as a babyface, as I think it suits him more than as a cocky heel. McGillicutty is one of my early candidates for most improved, the guy has gotten very good on his control sections along with his facial expressions. All very well done. Best thing on NXT this week. Grade: 2.6
Overall Grade: 2.85
WWE Superstars (aired March 22nd)
1. WWE Tag Team Champions Epico & Primo w/Rosa Mendes defeated Alex Riley & Mason Ryan by pinfall when Epico pinned Ryan after a Double Backstabber.
Mr. V: The finish was poor, but it’s because Ryan just could not bump the way it was booked. From what I saw, this was a match between the power of Riley and Ryan vs. the quickness of Primo and Epico. Primo and Epico are a team that the WWE should cherish. They are quick to handle the smaller wrestlers and they can slowly wear down power wrestlers. Grade: 2.0
Jason N.: The best worked match on the show, but not by much. Epico & Primo continue to work very well as a team and I like that they kept Ryan to a minimum here with just coming in off the hot tag, Ryan kept to small doses has good power spots, but anything where he is in for a long time does not work. Riley was good on the sell, but still has problems with his speed and I don’t think that will ever be resolved. All in all though, a decent match. Grade: 2.1
Overall Grade: 2.05
2. WWE Divas Champion “The Glamazon” Beth Phoenix & Eve Torres defeated Natalya & Tamina Snuka by pinfall when Eve pinned Tamina with a top rope moonsault.
Mr. V: Eve’s moonsault was bad, but she tried to cover it up when it looked like a theatrical hooking of the leg for the pinfall. Eve’s heel character was great in this match and I think she can really carry the banner of the Divas Division. I was impressed with the flow of the match, something one does not see much of in this type of match. Grade: 1.7
Jason N: It was actually pretty solid. Liked that they somewhat kept Beth & Natalya away from each other as it’s smart to do that to build to a bigger match down the line. Tamina was good off the hot tag, but the botched finish somewhat hindered the match to me. Decent to get over Beth & Eve heading into Mania and Natalya & Tamina put on a good effort to get them over. Grade: 1.8
Overall Grade: 1.75
3. Titus O’Neil defeated Yoshi Tatsu by pinfall with the Clash of the Titus.
Mr. V: These two don’t have chemistry. Tatsu had the quickness, but O’Neil is just not a good opponent. The first half of the match was near failing, but they did rebound later on. The match could have been better. Grade: 1.6
Jason N.: It was OK, but Titus is just really uninteresting and forced as a heel. I don’t buy his heel mannerisms as it just doesn’t seem to suit him. Yoshi was good on the sell and showed decent babyface fire. but the forced heel work from Titus hurt this match. Grade: 1.7
Overall Grade: 1.65
4. Drew McIntyre defeated Ezekiel Jackson by pinfall with the Future Shock DDT.
Mr. V: This was a good main event for this type of show. Jackson showed off his abundant power while McIntyre did a fine job wearing down and controlling Jackson. If there is one thing that I worry about with Jackson it is his durability. He looked strong at the start, then was visibly worn down near the end (and I don’t think Zeke was selling fatigue). The Future Shock DDT finish was spot on. Grade: 2.1
Jason N.: It was a way to get McIntyre back on the winning side of things, but Zeke I thought, was a little sloppy on the comeback. McIntyre was good on the control, but Zeke is also not a good seller and the sloppiness of his comebacks also put a damper on the match overall. Grade: 1.6
Overall Grade: 1.85
TNA IMPACT Wrestling (aired March 22nd)
Best Segment: James Storm’s promo where the lawyer of Bobby Roode (Shane Haste from OVW) drew Storm’s ire and got a taste of the Last Call superkick.
1. In a match taped for TNA Xplosion, Kazarian defeated Eric Young by pinfall with a jackknife pin using the ropes for leverage.
Note: Mister V did not watch TNA Xplosion for March 21, 2012.
Jason N.: A lot of fun with the comedy stuff in the beginning. Once Kazarian took control, it became very bland and dull. Young’s comeback was solid, but the finish was very weak. A good start to the match but a flat ending hurt the grade. Grade: 1.7
Overall Grade: 1.7
2. TNA X-Division Title: “A Double” Austin Aries (c), Zema Ion, Kid Kash & Anthony Nese went to a no-contest when Bully Ray interfered. By virtue of the decision, Aries remains X-Division Champion.
Mr. V: This had all the spots that made the X Division a popular part of Impact Television. However, I thought there were too many spots and no selling at all. Aries was the star of the match and adding Bully Ray’s story gives this division a new twist. Grade: 1.6
Jason N.: Decent but it was a bunch of guys doing spots until Bully Ray came out and took them all out to lead to the no contest. Entertaining spotfest, but that’s about it. Grade: 1.8
Overall Grade: 1.7
3. TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles: Eric Young & ODB (c) defeated Rosita & Sarita by pinfall to retain the titles when Young pinned Rosita after ODB hit her with the BAM!.
Mr. V: Nothing really stood out when it came to a wrestling match. However, what I did get out of this is ODB’s true love to Eric Young. Grade: 1.0
Jason N.: Fun match with the comedy and the tease of dissension between Young & ODB because as we all know, wrestling weddings don’t end happily ever after. Grade: 1.9
Overall Grade: 1.45
4. 3 Minute Challenge: “The Olympic Gold Medalist” Kurt Angle & Garrett Bischoff went to a No Contest when Gunner interfered.
Mr. V: So wait, Kurt Angle beats Jeff Hardy at Victory Road, then loses to him? One thing I liked was Garrett milking the time out of the ring until the DQ result. But still, why? Grade: 0.5
Jason N.: Its Garrett Bischoff, moving on. Although, I will say, he did look a lot better with his offense. But, at the end of the day, its still Garrett Bischoff. The less said, the better. Grade: 1.1
Overall Grade: 0.8
5. TNA World Tag Team Titles: Magnus & “The Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe (c) defeated Mexican America (Anarquia & “Super Mex” Hernandez) by pinfall to retain the titles when Magnus pinned Anarquia after the Best of Both Worlds.
Mr. V: Hernandez was great in the power game. He looked like he was ready when throwing Magnus around. I thought Anarquia showed a bit of improvement as well. However, one thing that impresses me the most is the chemistry of Joe and Magnus. Right now, Magnus is my pick for Most Improved Wrestler. This was an entertaining Tag Team Title Match. Grade: 2.2
Jason N.: Actually, a pretty solid match. It definitely showed that Anarquia was in OVW recently because his work did not totally suck. Hernandez was good with the power stuff and Magnus was good as a FIP. Grade: 2.0
Overall Grade: 2.1
6. Handicap Match: “Cowboy” James Storm defeated Kazarian & “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels by pinfall when he pinned Daniels with the Last Call.
Mr. V: This match was well-booked. This made Storm look like the favorite in his match with Bobby Roode by taking out two wrestlers. However, the side story to this is the turmoil surrounding Daniels and Kazarian. They tried to one-up each other, and were kicked in the end. The wrestling was limited, but told a good set of stories. Grade: 1.8
Jason N.: Another short match for Storm to protect him after his ankle surgery. Liked that he got a dominant win heading into Lockdown and it also did a good job of re-creating the tension between Daniels & Kazarian. Grade: 1.7
Overall Grade: 1.75
WWE Friday Night Smackdown (aired March 23rd)
Best Segment: The opening promo with Daniel bryan & AJ where Bryan was feeding her lines and then the interaction with Sheamus was very entertaining and well done.
1. “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry defeated R-Truth by pinfall with the World’s Strongest Slam.
Mr. V: This was a squash all the way and this result proved one thing. Team Johnny heading to WrestleMania is extremely powerful. Grade: 1.3
Jason N.: Short but to the point match to continue to get Henry back over as being dominant. Grade: 1.5
Overall Grade: 1.4
2. AJ w/WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan defeated Brie Bella w/Nikki by pinfall with a roll-up after interference from Nikki backfired.
Mr. V: Again, another solid showing for the WWE Divas this week. They had submission holds in this match and it was great to see AJ add the arm breaker to her arsenal. Brie Bella showed a brawling potential as well. Grade: 1.8
Jason N.: More to get over Bryan as the scumbag boyfriend than anything else. Match was pretty much the same as last week. Grade: 1.4
Overall Grade: 1.6
3. “Long Island Iced Z” Zack Ryder w/Hornswoogle defeated “The All-American American” Jack Swagger /Vickie Guerrero by pinfall with the Rough Ryder.
Mr. V: Ryder goes to Team Teddy, and in the end it was a wise move for the Smackdown GM. Ryder has improved a bit since the last time I watched him and with his character that is a great thing. Swagger’s wrestling background is impressive, but again something is missing and he needs to find that fast. Grade: 1.9
Jason N.: Solid match, but more of a backdrop to the Long/Ace stuff on the outside. Good way to give Ryder a much needed win and the finish was well done. Grade: 1.9
Overall Grade: 1.9
4. “The World’s Largest Athlete” The Big Show defeated “The Big Red Machine” Kane by disqualification when Cody Rhodes interfered.
Mr. V: Both showed great power spots and the result was fantastic. Sure, this was a good big man battle but the post-match showed the real reason why they are here. Show has Rhodes to worry about, and Kane got RKO’d after the Choke Slam. The match was well-booked and very powerful. Grade: 2.1
Jason N.: Decent back and forth match, but as with the RAW match, more to get over the Rhodes-Show angle, as well as a way to put more heat with the Orton-Kane angle heading into WrestleMania. Grade: 1.6
Overall Grade: 1.85
5. “The Funksaurus” Brodus Clay w/Cameron & Naomi defeated “The 1 Man Southern Rock Band” Heath Slater by pinfall with the Funk It.
Mr. V: Like how Slater took down Clay, but Clay still makes me smile when he enters the ring. I need to get that theme song on my iPhone. Grade: 0.8
Jason N.: Another squash match from Brodus, but it was refreshing to see Slater get some offense in. Grade: 1.2
Overall Grade: 1.0
6. The Great Khali w/WWE Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long defeated “The Show-Off” Dolph Ziggler w/Vickie Guerrero, David “A List” Otunga & WWE RAW General Manager & Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurantis by count-out after Ziggler would not get back in the ring once the match was re-started by Long. Ziggler had originally won by submission when Laurantis rang the bell, but Long had the match re-started.
Mr. V: This was one of the slowest quick matches I have seen in a while. I know Khali is trying in the ring, but Ziggler is just way too fast for him to a man like Khali to keep up with. Again, another good match to continue the 12-man Tag Team story. Grade: 1.2
Jason N.: Another match to be a backdrop for the Long/Ace stuff. However, Ziggler & Khali have always had good chemistry in the ring, going back to their 2009 feud, so the match was as good as a Khali match can be in 2012. Grade: 1.8
Overall Grade: 1.5
7. WWE Champion CM Punk & “The Great White” Sheamus defeated WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan w/AJ & The Miz by pinfall when Sheamus pinned Miz with the Brogue Kick.
Mr. V: If you only count matches that are on television, then this was the best one. While Punk was not entirely a factor in the result to the match he did show quickness and was great on the hot tag. The Brogue Kick by Sheamus may be my favorite finisher at the moment because when one gets hit with it, it is Lights Out! Bryan was not bad in the match, but his character shows his concern that he may lose the title. The Miz was good as well, he was technical in the ring and showed some quickness. I hope The Miz finds something at WrestleMania. Grade: 2.7
Jason N.: Good main event, but just a little short. Finish was done nice as Bryan was the cowardly champion getting away from his dominant challenger. Miz takes yet another fall and Punk was fine in the match, but I felt he was just there to be a warm body. Grade: 2.2
Overall Grade: 2.45
