This week in WWE GIFs: A lesson in counting from Nakamura, Ricochet takes flight and more
What a week! Between Raw, SmackDown LIVE, NXT and 205 Live, there were plenty of high-flying, high-impact and hysterical moments that the WWE Universe will want to relive for years to come. That’s why we’ve turned many of them into GIFs and posted them to our GIPHY channel. Now, you can use them to express yourself on social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, Slack, Tinder and more. Be sure to share your favorite, and come back every week for new WWE GIFs!
The Velveteen Dream made the bold claim that anything Ricochet could do, he could do better. The high-flyer proved him wrong in an instant, blowing the minds of the NXT Universe with this daredevil dive to the arena floor that shows exactly why Ricochet is worthy of the moniker “The One and Only.”
A pancake confronts you, it is the enemy
Last week, The Miz was shamed with pancakes to the face, courtesy of The New Day. With the help of The Bar, The Awesome One is seemingly determined to never let that happen again. Judging by this scene caught by cameras on SmackDown LIVE, he’s succeeding. Breakfast will never be the same after a blindfolded Miz karate chops these pancakes to bits.
The slap heard ‘round the world
Finn Bálor is an extraordinary man who does extraordinary things. Having the guts to walk up to Braun Strowman and slap him in the face certainly falls under “extraordinary,” though it resulted in Bálor getting tossed across the ring like a ragdoll. Relive the brazen blow here:
Elias on Virginia: “Ew.”
Normally, Elias opens up his concerts with one question: “Who wants to walk with Elias?” However, Monday on Raw, the troubadour retracted the offer after looking upon the WWE Universe gathered in Richmond, Va. Elias’ repulsed reaction made for a GIF that’s perfect to use whenever you’re feeling a little grossed out.
Since revealing that he and AJ Styles would be facing off in a Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship at WWE Money in the Bank, Shinsuke Nakamura has been a little obsessed with explaining the finer points of the match’s rules. Along the way, The King of Strong Style may be helping some of the younger members of the WWE Universe learn how to count, as illustrated in this educational GIF:
Cedric shows off
Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy put on a show-stealer of a match on 205 Live this past Tuesday, going all out in a battle for the Cruiserweight Championship. Though Murphy was trying to pummel him into the canvas, Alexander still found a way to show off his impressive agility.
The SmackDown LIVE Dance-Off between Naomi and Lana ended with a brawl, but we’re choosing to remember the good times before all that happened. The two Women’s Money in the Bank Match participants looked to be getting along, and even paid tribute to Kid ‘n’ Play, making for a great GIF when you can’t help but bust a move.
This GIF = us at every barbecue
Look, Rhyno had the right idea during the B-Team’s Memoria Day Tag Team Barbecue. While everyone else was arguing, The Man Beast was chilling out and chowing down on what looked like some positively delicious bologna sandwiches. This GIF might be the perfect one to express how you’re feeling before every cookout this summer.
