The Flash Winter Finale Review: “The Present”

Feel The Rain On Your Skin

The Flash, heart and soul of the Arrowverse in my opinion, had been in a bit of a holding pattern this season. Certain story elements felt like retreads, while others felt largely inconsequential.

And no, Sasha Banks merely winning the RAW Women’s Title, in and of itself, may not top the dopeness scale. Her bending Charlotte around that rail like a slap bracelet was hot fire. WWE spends so much time building to larger moments, specifically for PPV’s that this kind of outcome will always be a true shock. Doesn’t hurt that the match itself was probably one of their best ever.  Continue reading Wrasslin’ State of Mined: Sasha Banks Takes Back The Title, Roman Works His Way Into The Picture and Styles Sends a Message (11.30.16)
