HELL IN A CELL

Lately under the HHH regime we have seen some unconventional risks that have led to some great outcomes.
Creative did it again, delivering some great storylines leading up to the “Special Event” and having more to come after it.
The business doesn’t end in a night and we now have a chance to see seeds planted for current and future rivalries, even looking beyond, potential cross rivals.

HIAC Winners
Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Divas division, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Bray Wyatt

HIAC Losers
Cesaro, Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Tag Team Division
Cesaro lost clean, which is awesome to me, however, other than a few big spots showing his strength, nothing more was did to establish a rivalry or threat to Dolph. Cesaro is in a stagnant stage of creative, we know he can deliver, perhaps have him lead a stable with some NXT guys and show off mic work and leadership for a bigger push.

We saw HIAC with no WWE Champion on the scene. In the essence of what it is to be champion, at least make a ringside appearance during the #1 contender match or attack Cena aftetwords to backup all what Paul Heyman has been saying. I bet money we will hear Cena yab and jab about how Brock isn’t around. Plus the event was stellar without the champion.

The tag division took a step back, maybe we could have had another tag match instead of 25 minutes of promos for an event we are already watching. The Usos loss, and like the Great Jim Ross says “there’s money in the chase”, we should have seen the makings of another team to challenge for the titles. Titles seem important when somebody is talking and chasing them.

Big Show lost via submission to Rusev. After Mark Henry fought a hard battle with Rusev last month, Big Show, the giant, lost via submission? Please do not have us with a crying giant segment. I would have been way more comfortable seeing Rusev use dirty tactics or even a blown call by the ref. Makes Show look like a cheated giant and not a weak average joe.

I will be tuning into to Raw and Smackdown to see what the future holds. With Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan out with injuries, it will be interesting to see how new rivalries mesh with old ones. The future looks bright!
Ambrose vs Wyatt
Rollins vs ??? Maybe Orton since we can expect Rollins to gloat about victory and Orton to be salty about losing
Reigns comes back to get his justice against Rollins.
Wyatt still hates everybody.
Dean Ambrose also hayes everybody
Daniel Bryan was never beaten
Cena just wants to be champ
Brock, the beast incarnate cant be stopped.

Do you see the beauty in so many x factors

WWE’s Tribute to The Ultimate Warrior

I have been a wrestling fan all my life. My top 5 personal favorites are Macho Man, Bret Hart, The Rock, Ric Flair and The Ultimate Warrior, God rest his soul. His impact in the ring during the 80s was a major factor in making the old WWF what it is today. The infamous promos factor in to every single interview that takes places in ALL OF SPORTS Today. Watch this video that highlights his career and the current WWE superstars show their respect.

Chan’s Keys To A Knicks Victory

The Knicks lost horribly in Game 6 at MSG, as we all know. There are a few keys that I observed that the team should go back to, which has produced previous victories.

  • Get Melo hot early – When Carmelo Anthony shoots the ball early and often, whether make or miss, the offense becomes more free flowing. Carmelo can easily score by shooting, posting up or attacking the basket because most matchups favor him. And, when he warms up he draws double team which opens up perimeter shooting through the Knicks ball movement.
  • Attack the basket. It is a beauty to see Felton and Shumpert getting layups and dunks. They seem to energize the team with timely baskets by attacking when long jumpers don’t go down. JR Smith tends to isolate dribble, behind the back, step back jumpshot, and shoot himself into a cold spell. Perhaps JR should attack the rim more to create high percentage baskets
  • Attack Kevin Garnett. – The Knicks killed the Celtics when KG was in foul trouble. So revert back to that! Attack Garnett aggressively and continuously. Use his intensity against him. This will lead to either easy baskets, or easy free throws. Doc Rivers will be forced to switch KG which will open up the rim for easier baskets.
  • Defensive Intensity Around the Perimeter – Boston hit way too many 3 point shots, even contested. You can’t be mad at contested 3’s but certainly at open shots. We need to use Shumpert/Prigioni/K-Mart to protect those long 3’s that killed us in Game 5. Also shutting down Boston transition offense. They are old, but Jason terry loves to shoot the transition 3. We must stop this
  • Get Tyson Chandler and K-Mart more active. We all know these 2 guys are animals on defense, but when they are more involved offensively, the spirit of the team on both sides of the ball heightens to a greater intensity. Nothing will simmer the Boston crowd more than a K-Mart slam or a Chandler alley.
  • Lastly, REBOUND, REBOUND, REBOUND. The Knicks must be relentless on crashing the boards and limiting the Boston offense to one shot only. Boston loves to grab a rebound and shoot a quick 3 after. 

Game 6 is a MUST WIN for the Knicks. Close this series in BostonImage

Colts sign deal with Heyward-Bey

Released by the Oakland Raiders earlier in the offseason, Darrius Heyward-Bey has found a new home in Indianapolis. The Maryland product will compete with LaVon Brazil for the third spot on the team’s depth chart behind Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.

DHB, considered a bust on the gridiron based on where he was taken in the 2009 NFL Draft, still has yet to post his first 1,000-yard season at the pro level. Chances are he won’t do it with the Colts either, so fantasy leaguers shouldn’t expect a spike in value – even with a talented quarterback like Andrew Luck under center.

In fact, Heyward-Bey still isn’t worth more than a late-round look in most leagues.

Pacers’ Paul George wins Most Improved Player Award

ProBasketballTalk

Paul George made a leap this season and people noticed.

With Danny Granger basically lost for the year due to knee issues, George took on a larger scoring role with the Pacers — he used 23.5 percent of their possessions when on the court — averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

That won the third-year player the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award.

“He left the season last year saying ‘Coach, I’m going to work harder than I ever have this summer and come back a completely different player. Just wait and see you’ll be so impressed.” And I have been impressed,” coach Frank Vogel said. “But what impresses me the most about Paul is his commitment to playing team basketball. Winning basketball.”

George is a force at both ends — the Pacers had the best defense in the NBA this season not because of the scheme…
