WEC 41, WWE Extreme Rules, Strikeforce: Lawler Vs. Shields – What To Watch This Weekend?
There are three big shows this weekend.
On Saturday night, Strikeforce gives us Jake Shields vs. Robbie Lawler and Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith as the double main event on a pretty stacked card.
On Sunday, WEC 41 has the rematch between Mike Brown and Urijah Faber as well as Jose Aldo vs. Cub Swanson and Jens Pulver vs. Josh Grispi. Going head to head with the live viewing of that show is WWE Extreme Rules, a PPV show headlined by Randy Orton vs. Batista in a steel cage and Jeff Hardy vs. Edge in a ladder match.
I asked the FGB crew which shows they were most interested in watching.
Alan: Can I pick the NOAH Korakuen show????
Well I’d probably say Strikeforce as the card is stacked from top to bottom, but I think I’m looking forward to the Brown fight on WEC the most as far as a single fight goes. I think in Diaz/Smith, Arlovski/Rogers and Shields/Lawler, you have an excellent three headed monster at the top of the card, and Baroni and Randleman as interesting characters supporting it.
Duan: I definitely think Strikeforce will be the most fun show overall. It’s a really solid line up, and it will probably put most of the recent UFC cards to shame from an entertainment standpoint. The three big match ups are pretty much guaranteed excitement. And even the Baroni/Riggs fight should be really good brawl. I can see Kevin Randleman vs. Mike Whitehead sucking, but it should be at least interesting to see what Randleman has left as a fighter.
WEC on paper looks to be the same as usual: A strong main event with a bunch of solid match ups on the undercard. I expect it to be a good show, but nothing more than that. WWE is on a minor role on PPV, but I just have absolutely no faith in that company. So I will just wait and see what happens with that one.
Cactus Jim: Iâ€™m looking forward to the Strikeforce show. Top to bottom solid, competitive match matches. This should be one hell of a show.
Big D: I’m looking forward to WEC the most, but man Strikeforce is a SUPER close 2nd. Its either or. Even WWE looks decent. Such a good weekend of shit.
GG: Looks like I’m the only one really looking forward to the WWE show. Much like Alan, Faber vs. Brown is probably the one fight I want to see most, but I kind of want to see Jeff Hardy vs. Edge even more. As a stacked card, I don’t think we can go wrong with Strikeforce, but I can definitely say that I’ll be watching WWE and recording WEC on Sunday.
