The Squared Café is a weekly(ish) column where I talk about the things I liked (and didn’t) throughout the week in wrestling, comics, TV or just stuff from the internet. I use lots of pics and gifs because if a picture is worth a thousand words, a GIF is worth a thousand and four. Plus it hides the fact that me no write so good. Let’s ninja!

The Wrestles

That face! Good lord!

This week on Raw, CM Punk kicked Dean Ambrose’s face into old age! So that’s good. Overall, the show was a bit of a bore until the main event which was like an eruption of joy from a volcano.
Bryan and Punk were in a 2 on 3 handicap match (the most popular match type of the week) against The Shield, which by itself is great. But then to make it greater, the Wyatt Family decided to join in and the stand off of all stand offs was had:

Before too many shots were fired, the Wyatts and The Shield united to beat up CM Bryan (CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, ’cause I’m lazy). Out to make the save were the Rhodeseses Brothers and The Usos.
I suppose this is all leading to something at Survivor Series. Maybe a big 6 on 6 match. I’d be down with that. Though I really want to see the Wyatt Family and The Shield kill each other. One day.

Oh, and Roman Reigns has a new ring entrance. I like it:


Elegant!

NXT continues to be my favourite wrestling show on TV. But it’s only my favourite show when my favourite wrestlers from the show are on the show. This week my favourite wrstlers form the show were not on the show. To sum up this weeks episode, a Bulgarian speaking woman spoke Bulgarian to a Bulgarian guy who speaks Bulgarian. And a hipster wrestled an English guy.

Fortunately, it wasn’t a total snoozefest. This happened:


Regal, you are best!

Also, Summer Rae and Sasha Something (I forget) didn’t appreciate Bailey’s gift. Poor Bailey. I hope she doesn’t get turned into a female Eugene.


I saw my first live wrestling show in Japan last week. Pretty fun times. As a result, Shinsuke Nakamura is my new favourite wrestler.

That’s the week in wrestles.
