WWE Great Balls of Fire Review/Results; A Surprisingly Good Show

The WWE Great Ball of Fire PPV was on and it was surprisingly a very good show. However, some might say that WWE is still pushing the heels over the babyfaces again. Not to mention fan favorite Finn Balor was not even booked on the show!

Story continues below....

That being said, it was paced really well and most of the matches were good. There were only a few duds and weird booking decisions. Let's start off by talking about the least exciting matches on the card...

Great Balls of Fire kicked off with the pre-show as Neville faced off against Akira Tozawa for the WWE Cruiserweight Title. The match was okay, but the finish was balls (literally). Neville pretty much held up Tozawa's crotch area on the ropes and kicked him. He then kicked him in the mid-section again and won.

The other useless match was Curt Hawkins vs. Heath Slater. This match was unannunced and literally nobody saw the finish. Heath Slater won even though they didn't even show the television audience. WWE were busy showing something else that happened on the show. Lastly, the other boring match was The Miz vs. Dean Ambrose. I'm sick to death of this feud as their matches aren't even that great. The Miz won via outside interference thanks to Maryse, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.

The main show actually started with Bray Wyatt vs. Seth Rollins in a good opener. Both men did some cool spots on the apron and Rollins was bumping like crazy. In the end though. Wyatt got the victory with Sister Abigail. It's cool to see Wyatt getting the win as he's been losing too many times lately.

Big Cass vs. Enzo Amore was what everyone expected it to be. Big Cass pretty much squashed his former teammate. The match was nothing special, but it's a breath of fresh air to see Big Cass going on to bigger things. He could be a big heel if he's booked right.

One of the best matches of the night was the Tag Team Title match between Sheamus and Cesaro vs. The Hardy Boyz. It was an exciting 30 minute Iron Man Match. The last few minutes were dramatic as both teams were at 3 pins each. However, Cesaro got the last pinfall winning the match for his team at 4-3. These four men deserve a raise for their performance.

Another commendable effort was from the ladies. Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss had a good match, although the ending may have annoyed some people. These two had good chemistry in a match that lasted just over 11 minutes long. Alexa Bliss counted herself out which is a bit of a bummer. Sasha Banks isn't the champion, but she beat up Bliss in a post-match fight.

The match of the night belonged to Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in an Ambulance Match. These two tried to destroy one another with chairs and other weapons. At one point. Reigns even shoved Strowman to break the stage. Strowman won in the end though as Reigns missed the spear and entered the Ambulance himself.

The big news from this match was what happened after it. Reigns was pretty much a sore loser and put Strowman inside the Ambulance. He then drove the Ambulance and crashed the back-side into a truck. Reigns looked like a heel here as he had no sympathy for his actions. Strowman was bleeding, but managed to walk away. It will be interesting to see how they further this storyline.

The other great match was Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship. This was a fast-paced match that was back and forth. Samoa Joe managed to do a lot of damage on Lesnar and held him with the Coquina Clutch many times. Lesnar looked like he was going to lose on more than one occasion. However, Lesnar found the strength to do the F-5 and won the match. It was a war, but Lesnar looked vulnerable. Joe still looked strong in this match despite losing it.

As a whole, this PPV was surprisingly decent. The drama between Reigns and Strowman will continue and Lesnar is still the Universal Champion. SummerSlam 2017 now lurks in the corner so WWE will be trying to book even bigger and better matches very soon!
