Thoughts:
I'm again toying around a bit with the colors for each brand now that I've changed the whole theme of the blog. This likely isn't something that will even bug anyone reading, but I figured I'd mention it.

With Wrestlemania closing in, WWE doesn't seem to be trying to sell the show to anyone outside of their core base. Instead, I actually saw a lot of diehards complaining about the booking of the first match I pulled this week. Oh well, that's WWE for you.

Speaking of, the women's match was pretty good. I'm not going to get upset by WWE booking as it's not worth the headache. I'll just simply say this was an enjoyable contest and leave it at that.

The 205 match of the week was a fun six-man, but it wasn't nearly as good as I was hoping it'd be. Oh well, it at least pushed things forward logically and was solid for what it was.

To close the week out, we have the finals of this year's Dusty Classic. Richochet and Black have been one of the better teams in wrestling so far, though this (like the six-man) wasn't as good as I had hoped. Sadly, that's largely due to their opponents not being of the same caliber. By the way, are Black and Ricochet still showing up on Raw and Smackdown or is that already over?

Really, the only match this week you need to see based on quality is Charlotte/Asuka. Skip the rest.
