The entire SmackDown Roster is hyped up for Survivor Series!
This Sunday, it all comes to a head. Team Blue has made history by putting Raw #UnderSiege and striking first. Maybe #Rawtaliation is coming, so check your egos at the door to be ready for anything. After Sunday, SmackDown will be the dominant brand. Not The B-Show, but the show.
Everyone rallies behind Shane. Shane pumps up the Women’s Team. Asuka wants to break their team, their team is gonna break Asuka’s arm. The United States Championship is on the line, both men are ready to shut Miz up. Miz lives on borrowed time, it’ll be his End of Days. Good, good. Raw is ready to Play The Game because they have Triple H now. But SmackDown has the greatest team in history! Over the top even, as they have 16 time world champion JOHN CENA! Sunday, Survivor Series, SmackDown will dominate and nobody will stop them. Not Angle, not Stephanie, and not The Shield. Not with The New Day going up against them. Challenge accepted, but why? Because, Smack! Down Rocks! Team Blue is feeling confident, will they make it a big night at Survivor Series?
GM Daniel Bryan is back!
He was only an envoy of peace to Raw, and yet KANE attacked him out of nowhere. Now he’s back, lucky to be standing. It’s partially his fault for not warning anyone. He should’ve known better that with Stephanie McMahon around, he wouldn’t be safe. But that’s the thing about Bryan and SmackDown: “we don’t stay down.” And they’ll hit back twice as hard! That’s why Raw is afraid of them this year. That’s why the needed Triple H on the team. They’re afraid, and embarrassed. Raw’s 25th anniversary is coming and yet SmackDown ransacked them. That’s the one thing Bryan didn’t agree with, only because he knows how vindictive Stephanie can be. Tonight, he senses #Rawtaliation is coming. But SmackDown is NOT afraid, and they ARE ready. Bryan bleeds blue, and he is proud of his roster! This Sunday, SmackDown will prove “beyond the shadow of a doubt” that SmackDown is the better show. Things change quickly over a week, like adding John Cena to the Men’s Team. And, the new WWE Champion, AJ STYLES!
The Phenomenal One gets a big ovation in Charlotte, North Carolina. And before he says anything, Bryan wishes to treat his champion just as if not better than Raw’s. If the Universal Champion has an advocate, so should the World Champion. Does Styles want an Advocate? The fans sure hope he does. Styles says “YES!” Then, “Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Daniel Bryan. And I am the Advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Champion of the World, The Phenomenal A! J! Styles!” Heyman gave us five reasons to order the WWE Network. Bryan agreed with all but reason “F5”, where Lesnar would brutalize and victimize Styles. Bryan can understand why Heyman thinks that. Lesnar is big and strong, from his arms and his legs, his head is big! And thick. And though Heyman hates to admit it, Lesnar has a tendency to quit. He quit WWE, he quit “to a half-ass kneebar on a UFC show.” Anytime Lesnar is in trouble, is uncomfortable, is put in deep water, he quits. Styles will push Lesnar into that deep water. Heyman brags that Lesnar is 6’3″ and 285 lbs. Guess what, when you’re that big in deep water, you last ten minutes, and then you drain. Lesnar will get tired, and his blood will flow away from his head, he will be back against a wall, and will mentally quit. Yes, Lesnar is big and strong but he can’t go all night long, he cannot keep up with The Phenomenal One! Heyman gave us five reasons to watch Survivor Series, here’s one more: to see a 6’3″ and 285 lbs. Beast be mentally beaten, victimized and conquered by the “best in-ring performer of this generation,” A! J! STYLES! Styles speaks up now. He can talk, unlike the puppet Lesnar. Styles agrees, fatigue makes us into quitters. Lesnar might quit, but Lesnar has to agree with Heyman. Styles is the underdog, and he loves that. But this isn’t a Rocky movie, this is a Styles Production. Styles will find the way all the way to the last breath in his body to beat Lesnar, and prove SmackDown is the A-Show, and “the House that AJ Styles Built!” Team Blue’s best is fired up, can he best the Beast?
AJ Styles is backstage when he encounters Jinder Mahal.
The Modern Day Maharaja says that after Lesnar rips Styles apart, Mahal will make it look like nothing when he takes back the WWE Championship. Styles simply walks past him. Will the Maharaja really be able to beat Phenomenal One down the line?
WWE United States Championship: Baron Corbin VS Sin Cara!
The Lone Wolf has had a war of words with The Miz leading up to Survivor Series, but one legitimate point Miz has brought up is that Corbin chokes. Can Corbin keep hold of the gold to then make the Hollywood A-Lister eat his words? The bell rings, the two circle and tie up, Corbin shoves Sin Cara but gets caught in a tilt-o-whirl headscissors. Corbin knees low, pushes Sin Cara again but Sin Cara comes back with furious strikes. Springboard arm-drag, dropkick to the knee and then a dropkick to send Corbin out. Corbin is frustrated as we go picture in picture.
Corbin paces, so Sin Cara pursues, taking the fight to him around the corner. COrbin slips back into the ring, Sin Cara shoulders in but then his slingshot is intercepted with a right hand. Sin Cara goes down, Corbin lets him sit out there while he catches his breath. Corbin goes out to grab Sin Cara and ram him into the barriers! Corbin breaks the ring count, then fetches Sin Cara back into barriers, Sin Cara blocks and bumps Corbin off it instead. Sin Cara runs but takes a back elbow, Corbin refreshes the count and puts Sin Cara in the ring. Corbin takes aim, runs in, Sin Cara elbows him back now. Double boots, too, then Sin Car goes up and over, Corbin slides out then in to clobber Sin Cara with a clothesline, TWO. Corbin is already annoyed, he stalks Sin Cara before putting him in a corner. Sin Cara bounces off a buckle and slumps to the mat, Corbin drags him back up. Corner to corner whip, Sin Cara again bounces off buckles. Corbin ignores the boos and jeers, returns to Sin Cara, and drives elbows into Sin Cara’s chest. Standing half-nelson chinbar, Sin Cara fights out as we go back to single picture. Corbin throws him to a corner, big clothesline then he drives Sin Cara’s face into the mat. Running right hand rocks Sin Cara, Corbin takes time gloating and stalking, toying with Sin Cara. Sin Cara fires back on Corbin, fans cheer him own as he kicks and chops away on Corbin. Sin Cara rocks Corbin with a springboard back elbow, then sends him out with a clothesline. Sin Cara builds speed, DIVES, direct hit!
Sin Cara goes after Corbin in the ring, running, springboard- Choke- roll up! TWO! Sin Cara tries again, springboard crossbody, TWO! Corbin flounders to a corner, Sin Cara gets himself up and whips Corbin. Sin Cara is reversed, reversed back but Corbin slides out then in, Sin Cara ducks and runs, DEEP SIX! TWO! Corbin is getting frustrated while Sin Cara gets to safety. Corbin drags Sin Cara up, hotshot and swing kick! Corbin runs back in, gets dumped out. Sin Cara up, SUPER Asai Moonsault! Back into the ring, Sin Cara goes up, takes aim, Corbin up so Sin Cara has to go over, runs in, END OF DAYS! Corbin wins and retains! The Lone Wolf is still set to face the Intercontinental Champion, will The Miz fear the big bad wolf of Team Blue?
SmackDown looks at Raw’s dysfunction.
#UnderSiege made Raw look weak and Stephanie hated it. She has put her faith in Kurt Angle but feels it is misplaced, as The New Day upped the embarrassment by using a “pump fake” to screw over The Shield’s Rollins & Ambrose in their Raw Tag Team Championship match. Angle’s response is to put his son, Jason Jordan, on the Men’s Team when John Cena was still available. And worse yet, Bray Wyatt injures Jason Jordan in their match. Jordan begged to stay on the team, desperate to get this chance. Stephanie had no remorse for removing the Gold-Blooded Son, and Triple H had even less than that when he made himself the new Fifth Man before giving Jordan a Pedigree! With this instability, will it be that much easier for SmackDown to become the better show?
Shane McMahon welcomes Daniel Bryan back.
Thanks for the support. Of course, Survivor Series is important. They must all be on the same page. Which is why GM and Commissioner need to talk. Shane did something without letting Bryan know, Bryan got hurt because of it. The discussion is tabled for now, is there some dysfunction on the Blue Brand after all?
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Natalya VS Charlotte!
The Queen of Harts or the Queen of Flair, only one woman can be Queen of SmackDown to then face the Goddess of Raw at Survivor Series! Charlotte has hometown advantage in her namesake city, can she ascend to the throne and then challenge Little Miss Bliss? Charlotte is definitely on Charlotte’s side as the bell rings and the two tie up. Roll up quick, ONE, Charlotte and Charlotte give out a “WOO!” The two tie up again, Charlotte backs Natty into a corner. Clean break but then a sucker punch from Natty, this turns into a scrap fast. Natty gets out, Charlotte pursues, she puts Natty into barriers!
Charlotte drags Natty up and into the ring, covers, TWO. Boot! Natty scrambles out, Charlotte baseball slides her down. Charlotte has Charlotte fired up as we go to break.
We return, Natty has Charlotte in a full Surfboard stretch. The fans rally, Charlotte gets out, Flair chop! Another chop, and another, and another, but the discus lariat puts Charlotte down, TWO. Natty tells the fans to shut up, then she kicks Charlotte before putting on a chinlock. The fans rally, Charlotte gets to her feet, but Natty throws her down by her hair. Natty walks over Charlotte, but Charlotte kip-up into a SPEAR! Cover, TWO, Charlotte and Charlotte are both a bit surprised. Charlotte drags Natty around, Figure Four but pushed into buckles hard, Natty grins as she stomps on Charlotte. Natty drags Charlotte to a cover, TWO. Natty tries again, TWO, she’s getting frustrated. Natty tells the fans to shut up, but they just boo and jeer while cheering on Charlotte. Natty slaps Charlotte, drags her around, Sharpshooter but Natty gets a slap! Roll up, TWO, discus — Exploder into a corner! Charlotte crawls to Natty, Natty slips out of the ring. Natty gets around to the far side, Charlotte comes in from the apron, booting Natty down. Charlotte gets on barriers, but Natty counters with a powerbomb into a post! Natty and Charlotte are down, but Natty gets up to drag Charlotte by her hair. Charlotte rallies for Charlotte as Natty slaps her, they get in the ring at 8. Natty drags Charlotte over again, prepares the Sharpshooter, Charlotte is locked in the signature submission!
Charlotte endures, reaches for ropes, drags herself over, but Natty drags her back. Charlotte endures even more, gets a second wind and gets to those ropes! Natty lets go, then claws and hammers away on Charlotte’s back. The ref backs her off, Charlotte dumps her out. Natty back in quick, into a BOOT! Charlotte gets Natty around, Figure Four! Figure EIGHT! Natty endures, Natty flails, Natty taps!! Charlotte is the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion!!
She is truly the Queen of Queens, and Renee Young appears to interview her in the ring. Things change at Survivor Series, how does Charlotte feel? Gotta catch her breath, because that match beat the heck out of her. Charlotte shows their support with a “WOO!” Superstar Shakeup made the title Charlotte’s singular goal, something she worked 24/7 for. To win here in her hometown, “You Deserve it!” Sunday, Alexa Bliss is her opponent, and Alexa will #BowtotheQueen, because there was a Queen of Raw before there was a Goddess, but now it’ll be a win for Team Blue.
And everyone knows about Ric Flair’s health, and growing up here, they all know the Flair family hardships, but Charlotte is sure her father is watching. He’ll definitely send her a text later, she lets him know already this win was for him! But speaking of The Nature Boy, he’s already here to celebrate!
A big emotional hug and tears, “WOO” all around, the Flairs are champions again. With all this motivation, can the Queen defeat the Goddess?
The Bludgeon Brothers cometh.
“I don’t hear anything.” “Except for the scream.” “I can’t feel anything.” “Except for the cracking of bones.” “Every hammer needs a nail.” “To give it purpose.” “And our purpose is?” “Obliterate everyone.” Luke Harper & Erick Rowan are returning next week, who will be the nails pounded in?
Jimmy Uso w/ Jey VS Chad Gable w/ Shelton Benjamin!
Though “American Alpha 2.0” challenged The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships, it seems they were really only after blood, as Gable gave Jey a nasty chop block that made the champions lose via count out. Now it’s time for some retribution before taking on the Raw Tag Team Champions this Sunday, is Day One Ish #ReadyWilling&Gable? Last year’s Survivor Series last two teams were the Usos and The bar, and they’re back again. Swiss Superman? That mouth piece won’t protect him from the Kryptonite Superkick. The Celtic Warrior, it’s true. “You DO look stupid.” This year will be no different, line up and get knocked down. Ask the Hype Bros, the Ascension, Breezango, American Alpha 2, The New Day, The Bar can welcome themselves to the Uso Penitentiary! The bell rings, Jimmy goes right at Gable and fires off uppercuts! Corner to corner whip reversed, Jimmy slides to a stop, another uppercut sends Gable out of the ring. Jimmy waits for him to get back in, but ends up coming out after him, things get in the ring but Benjamin distracts, dragon screw leg whip! Gable does another, going after that leg like he did to Jey. Gable stomps away on Jimmy, twists that leg hard, cover, TWO. Things go picture in picture as Gable pulls on that leg.
Gable has a hold of Jimmy’s foot, anchoring the other foot down so that Jimmy can’t get away. Jimmy breaks free but then gets put back in a drop toehold, snap deathlock, TWO. Gable keeps his cool as he puts Jimmy in a corner and uses the rope to work on the leg. Gable drags Jimmy out, T-Bone suplex! TWO, Gable just keeps on that leg. Gable wrenches the knee, Jimmy endures. Jimmy pulls Gable’s hair but it isn’t’ enough to get free, Gable yanks on the leg before a cover, TWO. Gable goes right back at the leg, torturing Jimmy’s knee. Jimmy works to pry free, and uses his free leg to kick Gable away. Gable catches the kick then ducks the dragon whip, another twist and snap on the bad left. The ref checks on Jimmy, he’s okay to keep going as Gable gets him up and gives him a shinbreaker! Jimmy is down again, Gable drags him back up and snapmares into a cover. TWO and we go single picture as Gable keeps yanking at that leg. Gable runs in, but Jimmy sticks out his good leg, whipping takedown from Gable plants Jimmy on his face. Gable climbs up, fans fire up, MOONSAULT! Galbe lands on his feet when Jimmy evades, mule kick takes out Gable’s leg! Gable gets to a corner, Uso gets up, Jimmy rallies on one good leg. Mule kick and uppercut, then Samoan Drop! Jimmy has adrenaline to get past the bad leg, he fires up the fans, running hip attack! Cover, TWO, Gable gets out to regroup with Benjamin. Jimmy takes aim, speeds up, Gagble hits him with a rolling kick! Spin around, then Jimmy sent right into the ropes. Gable goes out after Jimmy, puts him in the ring, Jey trash talks him. Gable shoves Jey, Jey chases him up but Benjamin comes over. Penalty kick for Benjamin, shove for Jey, SUPERKICK from Jimmy, Jimmy wins! Day One rolls on, will they do this to The Bar this Sunday?
Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens talk backstage.
Everyone’s all “Raw, SmackDown”, A-Show, B-Show, but these two aren’t on Survivor Series. Because Shane is biased against them. These two should be fighting The Shield. The New Dya is a “circus act!” Nobody is better than these two. Not The New Day, not The Shield. No show matters except for the Sami & Kevin Show. Or is it the Kevin & Sami Show? Fair enough. Either way, time to show what they’ve got.
The New Day VS Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn!
Awwww~, Charlotte! Don’t you dare be sour! Clap for your four time champs and feel, the powah~! Sunday is Survivor Series, and The New Day takes on The Shield. Between those three, they have 13 title reigns. But between these three, there’s 27! Mostly Kofi, though, he’s that good. The Hounds of Justice VS The Unicorns of WWE. Hounds, canines, dogs. Why would you want to be a dog? They eat poop! Unicorns are mythical, mysterious and magical! Another thing, The New Day can trust each other. The Shield can’t. They’ve already turned on each other. They teamed up together again because they’re cuddling up with exes. But when it is warm again, The Shield will break up. But who will? Who? Who who? The New Day~! And when this Survivor Series comes around, The New Day will survive. They are a true brotherhood, they will never betray each other. You know why? Because New! Day Rocks!
We return, The Best Friends have finally entered, and Woods starts against Sami. Sami throws his jacket at Woods, Woods sees how it is. The two circle, tie up, headlock from Sami. Woods powers out, Sami shoulders him down. Sami is all smiles as he speeds things up and shoves Woods, Woods keeps moving, tilt-o-whirl headscissors throws Sami. Sami ends up in the New Day corner, “time to turn up!” The Unicorn Stampede begins! And by the end, it is Woods who is legal. Big E whips Woods in for a dropkick to Sami, cover, TWO. Woods grabs Sami but Sami powers him to the corner, tag to Kevin, Kevin unleashes strikes and stomps. Sami gets a cheap shot, too, before Kevin goes back to hitting Woods. Scoop slam but Woods slips out, drop toehold puts Kevin on the ropes, dropkick! Kevin is n the corner, Woods forearm smash and tag to Big E, big shoulder tackle and then feed to the Honor Roll, cover, TWO. E tags Woods back in, Woods runs, wheelbarrow splash. Kevin gets out, Sami in, roaring elbow sends Sami out. Woods builds speed, Kevin trips him up, spins him around and yanks him out to the floor. Back senton on top, Kevin is still furious as he drags Woods up and in while we go to break.
We return, Sami anchors Woods, tag to Kevin, Kevin stomps Woods down. Kevin trash talks Big E, wraps Woods in a chinlock. Big E and Kofi try to coach Woods back into this, the fans join in. Fans take notice of something else, though. Woods endures, works his way up, but there’s still something somewhere else noteworthy of attention. Kevni knees Woods, DDT, TWO. Kevin drags Woods over, tag to Sami, Woods is isolated as he’s mugged. Sami toys with Woods, chops Woods, whips Woods but Woods hits Kevin, dodges, tag to Big E! Overhead suplex! Overhead suplex! Belly2belly suplex! Big E fires up and swivels the hips, runs for the Big Splash! Kevin gets in, Big E feeds him to Woods’ kick, then is dumped out. Woods runs, FLIES, and topples Kevin over. Big E goes back to Sami, “Sierra, Hotel, India, Echo, Lima, Delta. Shield.”
#RAWTALIATION! The Shield is here, staring down at some prime prey. The New Day, Kevin and Sami stand together as The Shield heads down to the ring, flanking it like always. The Shield stands on the apron, Kevin and Sami fade out. The Shield goes after the New Day! Stomps in the corners, but then The Usos appear! They hesitate, so the Shield pounces. It’s 5v3 now, The Shield looking like they’re in danger, but then MORE Raw Superstars appear! THE BAR is here! They go after The Usos, who they face Sunday, an even 5v5. Meanwhile, the women collide backstage!
They all surround Charlotte, Alexa decks her! The brawl in the ring continues, and MORE Raw Superstars appear! Finn Balor, Titus Worldwide, Samoa Joe, they add on to The New Day and Usos getting beat down. Shane mobilizes Team SmackDown! It’s an even bigger brawl! Penalty Kick to Roode, but then Shane gets Finn. Kurt Angle and BRAUN STROWMAN are here. The Monster Among Men rips his way through the Hype Bros, then into the ring.
He fights off Shinsuke Nakamura, Shane attacks from behind but that doesn’t work out at all. Shane fires off hands, but it doesn’t do a thing, he gets run over by the mountain. Then other stars, like Dolph Ziggler and the Usos are cleared out of the way. Shane is brought up to look at what’s happening to hisroster.
The Shield goes 3v1 on Shane O’Mac, making an example of the commissioner. Other members of Raw get their shots in, Samoa Joe uses the trombone to beat up The New Day. And Angle then enters the ring to get face-to-face with Shane. “How does that feel, Shane? You think this is bad, wait until Sunday!” Angle then gives the thumbs down. The Shield takes Shane, TRIPLE POWERBOMB!
And if that wasn’t enough, ANGLE SLAM! And for the hell of it, a secondTRIPLE POWERBOMB!! #Rawtaliation accomplished, will SmackDown even survive Survivor Series?
This was the go-home worthy of how WWE has framed Survivor Series this year. Shane was rallying SmackDown as they felt untouchable going into Survivor Series, a seemingly more unified front than Raw has been showing. Loved the Daniel Bryan opening segment to parody Paul Heyman, Bryan was amazing on the mic, he and Styles really did great with some work shoot comments. Big championship matches tonight, important to the Champion VS Champion rundown. Sin Cara wasn’t going to win the title to deny fans the blow-off to the amazing social media build between IC and US champs, Miz-Corbin is going to be great for both in-ring and story telling, Heel VS Heel is something WWE tends to shy away from so it’s great they’re giving it a shot on this cross-brand PPV. The Women’s Championship match was incredible, something worthy of a PPV in itself, and it is great to see Charlotte win here. Not just because it was a hometown hero win, but because it pits two women who were both Raw and SmackDown champions to see who is the best of both brands. Great moment with Ric Flair surprising us, big amount of momentum for Charlotte this Sunday. Jimmy VS Gable was good, Gable showed great aggression but Jimmy showed great fortitude to fight through a banged up leg. New Day VS Kevin-Sami was also great stuff, and then #Rawtaliation finally happened in the most epic way possible! Shield naturally shows up to get revenge on New Day, Kevin-Sami naturally run away because they don’t actually care about SmackDown like the others do, and then things escalate to natural levels, in the ring and backstage. Shane is still a madman for taking an Angle Slam and two Triple Powerbombs, but it’s not like he was going to be the ace on SmackDown’s men’s team.
My Score: 8.5/10
AJ’s IMPACT Wrestling Results & Review 4/15/21
AJ fills in to cover his first Impact full show in a hot minute! How does he feel about the product? How is everything building towards Rebellion?
Oh… Were you guys expecting to see Andrew’s IMPACT? No no… Much like Matt and Jeff, Matt showed he can work but they just liked Jeff more.
I’m kidding but, yes as Andrew has said in the last IMPACT review, I am taking over IMPACT duties for the foreseeable future. Jazz’s retirement speech along with a lot of other interesting things to come like Omega and Swann with a Press Conference and good amount of matches to come.
What will I think of IMPACT now that they have another “Phenomenal AJ” with them?
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
- TJP vs Josh Alexander – Josh Alexander wins via Butterfly Piledriver – *** ¼
- Crazzy Steve (w/ Decay) vs Karl Anderson (w/ Doc Gallows) – Karl Anderson wins via Spinebuster – ** ¾
- Pick Your Poison: Brian Myers vs Jake Something- Myers wins via Roster Cut – **
- Pick Your Poison: Matt Cardona vs Sami Callihan- Sami Callihan wins via Package Piledriver – ** ¾
TJP vs Josh Alexander
Both men showing more of the technical side of them instead of the X Division we are used to seeing throughout the years but the two are using a good amount of speed against each other, picking up in the later part of the match up. They go to different styles rapidly from technical, to agility, strength and striking too around the end.
Every time TJP goes for an Armbreaker or his signature Octopus, Josh scouts it and gets into an Ankle Lock. TJP also has the move caught and transitions into an STS. TJP goes for a Mamba Splash but it keeps getting countered into the Ankle Lock again. TJP yet again reverses it into an Arm Bar and Josh Alexander realizes that he has to win with something else and breaks the Armbreaker with a Powerbomb and hits a Double Underhook Piledriver to finish off TJP this matchup.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
A short promo airs for “Let’s Get Wilde”, showing that Taylor Wilde is returning fairly soon to IMPACT Wrestling.
Crazzy Steve vs Karl Anderson
Karl Anderson gets the advantage very early on, sneak attacking and beating down Steve, even during the break. With every single dirty trick, Crazzy Steve can’t seem to get any form of offense until Karl’s hubris gets in his way. Steve actually getting some fast paced offense going until Gallows interferes enough times for the win.
Was a good match, making sure that the Bullet Club reigns supreme on two shows. That and usually a Pair of Aces is a good way to win as well.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
We get to the Swing Plaza and some odds when it comes to the X Division Championship Match at Rebellion. Ace saying he’s the best more a less, TJP actually saying he’s got a good amount of wins against both of them and Josh… getting the math from his friend Little Petey Pump on his three-way chance at Rebellion.
Eddie cuts a promo against Violent By Design with Willie Mack in tow. After Eddie comes with a declaration of war, VBD comes down and tells Eddie that he just wants his beating and says he had nothing to do with beating up Tommy Dreamer at Hardcore Justice. Violent By Design comes to the ropes after Eddie says let’s fight as James Storm and Chris Sabin runs down to even up the odds and challenges them to an Eight Man Tag Team match up for Rebellion.
Before we get Jazz’s Retirement speech, Deanna Purazzo is walking to the ring with Su…san and catches Scott D’More. Scott tells her to not ruin her moment in the ring before cutting to commercial.
Jazz comes out for her retirement speech and says Deanna and Jordynn are the present and future of Women’s Wrestling. After Jazz gives her heart felt speech, Fire n Flava comes out to interrupt and tells them that they don’t care and good riddance until… per Scott D’More and since Jazz never said I’m retired… WE HAVE A TAG TEAM MATCH!
For it being Impromptu, it was still a great feel good moment. Jazz got to go out on top with a Falcon Arrow variant and now official retires after her match. Everyone comes out from the locker room to give their support and love for Jazz.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 16, 2021
After the break, Scott tells Fire n Flava that they have to face Jordynn and Jazz for the Tag Titles at Rebellion. They storm off upset but Jazz and Jordynn show up and Jazz says she appreciates it but, she is a woman of her word and will be retired but… she will get a substitute for Jordynn for the match.
Pick your Poison starts for Cardona and Myers as they pick each other’s opponent tonight. Myers is in the ring first and Cardona picks Jake Something.
Brian Myers vs Jake Something
Jake takes it to Myers really on, out powering and out muscling Myers before Myers powders out and runs away from Jake in order to bait him into a Roster Cut for the win.
After the match, Myers says that it’s hard to see with the eyepatch but it’s harder to see in the dark as Myers picks Sami Callihan to face Matt Cardona.
Matt Cardona vs Sami Callihan
Sami jumps Cardona early on before the bell and once we get started, Cardona hits a Rough Ry… Leg Lariat. He hit’s a leg lariat for the two count. Both men striking hard and beating each other down, in and outside of the ring, mistakes are what changes things from both men where Sami takes too much time and Cardona gets too angry and gets sloppy in his moves. No matter what, neither men can get an advantage until Cardona gets his adrenaline pumping, hitting Radio Silence to Sami but kicks out.
After some counters to take Matt Cardona’s cheap tactics by Sami Callihan to get the upper hand and the win, thumb in the eye of Cardona and into a Package Piledriver.
Aftermath: Sami tells Trey Miguel to come out and talk to him. Trey has a chip on his shoulder and tells Sami that he wants nothing to do with him. Sami tries to tell Trey that he is proud of Trey for taking the opportunity at Hardcore Justice because Sami was the one to take out Tommy Dreamer in the main event and that’s where Trey goes to attack Sami but you do not mess with a dangerous man, especially one that uses a chair to prove a point. Sami dismantles Trey with the chair but Trey keeps standing after the beatdown.
FinJuice has a promo against The Good Brothers saying that they are going to prove that they are the best and better than what the Good Brothers say they are.
The press conference begins and Kenny Omega is…. late it seems as the questions start for Rich Swann, if he can handle the challenge and answers the best way I could think. As they ask the questions about being Champion for both companies and their commitments that will happen and make sure there is a definitive winner, Kenny finally shows up and the questions for them begin. Don gets questioned about his loyalty to IMPACT and his devotion to Kenny Omega and if there will be a backlash for it and Callis gets sick of his only question as he praises Omega again so he can talk. Kenny Omega speaks on how he is used to this type of thing, big match, dress to impress and then starts to insult Rich Swann, saying he’s not on his level and he doesn’t belong on this platform.
He says this is the last time he will be cordial, that the next time he sees Rich is in the ring and goes to shake his hand… but paint brushes him instead as a fight closes out the show.
Now… I do love IMPACT. I really do and enjoyed a lot of the moments in the night, from Cardona and Myers trying to outwit each other, the VBD vs IMPACT Soldiers to get a match at Rebellion all the way to Callihan and Trey’s confrontation. All of this will play out perfectly as the set up for Rebellion’s card on the 25th. Bound to see some great matches and this is my first time giving my opinions and thoughts on IMPACT on this platform and we might even get more as they added Trey vs Sami in a Last Man Standing Match, Jordynn Grace and a Mystery Partner against Fire n Flava along with Violent By Design against the IMPACT faithful.
All of that being said however, am I the only one that really and truly… not giving even a modicum of care about the Title vs Title Match for Rebellion? It’s going to be Kenny. All fingers point to Kenny. They even said there is going to be an All Elite Wrestling Referee there to make sure it’s a definite match. They are making it seem like Rich is just so insignificant on his own show that he is representing as their Undisputed World Champion. I know I usually don’t get on my soap box during reviews but I can say without a shadow of a doubt… I really don’t care about this match and I know I’m going to cover it in two Sundays. Try to impress me. Make me give a damn about this match IMPACT. You have a week.

NXT UK Media interviews Noam Dar and Sha Samuels.
How is Dar feeling after his loss at NXT UK Prelude? Sha asks, “How do you think he feels?!” It winds Sha up, gets on his nerves, that Dar works so hard every single day to make sure this brand is at the TOP of the WWE! And Tyler Bate and his “old man,” Trent Seven, just get handed things on a silver platter! Dar has Sha calm down, and says those boys play checkers, but he and Sha play chess. Dar has friends in high places, and he has guaranteed himself and Sha a tag team match with Moustache Mountain! Sha likes that, and Dar says they’ll see those dafties next week. EEEEAST!!
NXT UK presents an all new Supernova Sessions!
“Hello, hello, hello! Hear me now, live from the moon,” Dar welcomes us back to his show. Now they say two is better than one, and usually Dar is a one man team. But as we heard, Dar and Sha will team up to make tag team history as they knock Seven & Bate off the tag team mountain! Now, all the way from Scotland, it’s GALLUS! Wolfgang, Mark & Joe Coffey walk out and they take the couch. Dar tries to say that’s his seat but he can’t get Gallus to go to the chairs. Dar tries to sit on the arm, but Gallus tells him no, there’s chairs over there. Dar sighs as he has to sit in the “guest” section, and then tries to get comfy.
Dar says Gallus is looking fantastic and fresh! Where did they go on holiday? And more importantly, what gift did they bring back for him? Mark tells Dar it wasn’t a holiday. It was time to train and refocus. They worked in the morning, had a drink in the afternoon, and didn’t “break any rules.” Gallus is held to a higher standard than any team here, so they picked themselves up and got going again. Dar likes that. How is Wolfie feeling? Well he’s been away, focusing on controlling his temper, and not let anyone get under his skins. Well said. Is Joe okay, though? That wing alright? Joe’s been kinda quiet. Joe says he’s had time to reflect. The next thing he wants to do is another go on the pitch.
But out walks a surprise guest! Eddie Dennis is here! Dennis has a mic already and he throws their words at them: Gallus is “held to a higher standard,” but the only reason they had the NXT UK Tag Team Championships to lose to Pretty Deadly is because Joe got involved in their business! Dar says Dennis shouldn’t go there. Well, if Joe wants to go on a rampage, start with the one guy who he’s been avoiding since the start of this brand. Joe tells Dennis that if he wants a round, they can go next week! No, Dennis didn’t mean himself. It’s those lads. PRIMATE & T-BONE JUMP GALLUS! It’s a brawl between all six men, Dar staying far away!
Referees rush out to stop this, but that’s not that easy! Gallus chases off Dennis and his new pack of animals, Dar having fun while munching on breadsticks and sipping juice. Play the funky music! Gallus wants to be back on top, but is there a new trio of alpha males moving into their territory?
NXT UK Media catches up with Sam Gardwell.
“Don’t accost me, journo, I’m busy.” But Gradwell can’t get in the door because it’s locked. Dave Mastiff gets it for him and Gradwell gets on his case. Mastiff tells him to shut up, then slams the door shut to lock it again! Gradwell is furious and shouts, “I’m the Thunderstorm! I’m the season! Come back, yogurt!!” Will Gradwell’s big mouth continue to get him on people’s bad sides?
Moustache Mountain “quiz” each other.
“I am…” “Trent Seven. And I am…” “Tyler Bate!” And together, they are Moustache Mountain! For the very first time in a year, and in BT Sports Studio Arena! It’s unbelievable, really. Bate is going after the Heritage Cup as a singles competitor, but until then, they’re back as a tag team against Dar & Sha! The Big Strong Boy & the Artful Dodger are back in the BT Sports Studio Arena, but will it be another big win?
Emilia McKenzie VS Isla Dawn!
With Meiko Satomura on her side, #SuplexMillie got a win over the not-so-good witch of Scotland. But now, they go 1v1 to see if Millie can repeat the performance! Will Dawn turn her fortunes around like a tarot card on the table?
The bell rings and Millie ties right up with Dawn. They go around on the ropes and corners, and Dawn pushes Millie in. The ref counts, Dawn CHOPS Millie! Millie kicks low, headlocks and grinds. Dawn powers up, pulls hair but can’t power out as Millie grinds tighter! The ref reprimands as Dawn pulls hair again. Dawn throws body shots, powers out, but Millie arm-drags Dawn down! And again! Dawn blocks the third but Millie wrenches through to hit a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Dawn gets up but Millie seethes as she waistlocks. Dawn scrambles and hotshots Millie in the ropes! Dawn dropkicks Millie down to the corner!
Dawn grins as she brings Millie up to bump her off buckles. The ref counts as Dawn KICKS away on Millie in the corner! Dawn lets off, brings Millie out and SNAP SAIDOS! Dawn looms over Millie, stomps her down, then sits her up. Millie hits back, Dawn clubs her, and gets the fisherman hook. Millie cradle counters, just like last week! TWO, but Millie kicks low! Millie whips, Dawn reverses and KNEES Millie against ropes! Millie gasps and sputters, Dawn drags her up to CLUB her down! Cover, TWO! Dawn drags Millie up and underhooks the arms. Millie resists, but Dawn shifts to a STANDING BUTTERFLY LOCK! Millie endures, fights, and breaks the grip!
Millie CLUBS Dawn on the back, throws big forearms, but Dawn shoves her away. Millie comes back to dropkick a leg out! Millie keeps moving to BASEMENT UPPERCUT! Dawn flounders to a corner, Millie runs in but Dawn dodges. Millie slips out and Dawn hits buckles. Millie ROCKS Dawn, then uses the corner for a HANDSPRING SPEAR! Cover, TWO!! Millie is beside herself but Dawn grabs at her. Millie shrugs Dawn off, clubs her on the back, then waistlocks. Dawn elbows free, bumps Millie off buckles, and then runs corner to corner to KNEE her! Fisherman to the PERFECT PLEX! Cover, TWO!! Millie survives and Dawn’s furious!
Dawn looms over Millie, drags her up and Millie shoulders into her! Millie pump handles for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO!! Dawn survives again and Millie is seething! Millie glares at Dawn, pushes her around, and waistlocks again. Dawn drops and victory rolls, TWO! Millie SHOTGUN dropkicks Dawn to a corner! Then Millie runs in to RAM Dawn! Millie fires off shoulders, fires off haymakers, but the ref backs her up. Millie spins around him, but Dawn ROUNDHOUSES Millie first! Millie staggers into Dawn’s HALF ‘N’ HALF! Bridging cover, Dawn wins!!
Winner: Isla Dawn, by pinfall
The SORCERESS of Scotland redeems herself! Will Dawn only get darker before she has her chance at the championship?
Jinny and Joseph Conners speak.
The Spoiled Princess tells “Dani Luna, sweetheart, I know what you’re capable of. You’re one of the strongest girls in this division, if not the strongest. But you walk around with your ugly, miserable looking face and you act like you don’t even want to be here. But in reality, you don’t deserve to be here. You’re a small fish in a big pond, who wears the same dirty outfit to the ring every time. And next week, when you step into the ring with the Fashionista, you’re just gonna end up another fashion victim.” Will Jinny show the punk rock powerhouse the pecking order of NXT UK?
After the brawl we saw earlier, Eddie Dennis VS Joey Coffey is happening next week! Will the Welsh Dragon dethrone the Iron King or be slain instead?
NXT UK shares footage from backstage last week.
After Aoife Valkyrie’s message to Meiko Satomura, the Final Boss finds her again. “I know what this means. I accept.” The black feather is returned to Aoife, and now the Best in the World will battle the winged warrior! Will Meiko be used as the updraft to raise Valkyrie to the next level?
Jack Starz w/ Piper Niven VS Ashton Smith!

Kenny Williams VS Amir Jordan!
Two years ago, as this brand began, so did a friendship between these two young superstars. They trained together, struggled together, won and loss together, and supported each other when the other was injured. But as times got tough, something started to sour. When they disagreed on how to win, that was the last straw, and The Chancer cheated his tag partner out of the titles! A promise broken, a tag team broken, a friendship broken. But now, as these two face each other as enemies, will one of them be left broken in the ring?
The bell rings and Williams rushes Jordan but Jordan dodges to clothesline him first! Jordan rallies with more lariats, throws his scarf off and fires hands on Williams in a corner!

Williams clamps onto the arm, grinds the shoulder and stands on Williams’ head!
Jordan endures, Williams pulls Jordan’s arms into a straitjacket! Jordan endures, even as Williams pulls him back against a knee. Jordan fights up, turns things around, but Williams kicks low. Williams bumps Jordan off buckles, throws forearms, but Jordan kicks low! Williams rams into Jordan, hoists him up top, then ROCKS him with a slapping palm strike!

It was just loose enough for Jordan to hit the steel behind the padding! Williams hits a HEADLOCK DRIVER!! Cover, Williams wins!!
Winner: Kenny Williams, by pinfall
The Chancer took a chance and it paid off! He gets away with another one, and has a big smile on his face over what he just did to his former friend. “Luck is all I need!” Will Williams leave the Bhangra Boy behind as he goes for his own glory and gold?
A pretty good episode for following Prelude and WrestleMania Week. All singles matches tonight but we got a very good tag match set up for next week. Dar & Sha VS Moustache Mountain is going to be great, and I have a feeling Moustache Mountain wins so that Bate can continue strong into the Heritage Cup match. Otherwise, I think Seven loses the match for them so that Dar & Sha can build themselves in the UK Tag Division while not costing Bate. Supernova Sessions was fun, with Gallus taking the couch and Dar unable to do anything about it. Gallus taking on Dennis, T-Bone and Primate already sounds like a lot of fun, and starting with Joe Coffey VS Dennis is a good call.
Frazer VS Huxley was a great opening match, Frazer winning was natural since he is that good and is building up. McKenzie VS Dawn was good, though I’m not sure the point of it other than to keep Dawn strong with her new Heel persona. Meiko responding to Aoife was good, and that match will be great, but I do feel like Meiko could put Aoife over so that Aoife can start to chase Kay Lee Ray and the title now. Jinny starting a thing with Dani Luna is interesting, but it will be good for Dani to get reps with someone as experienced as Jinny. Starz VS Smith was a great match, especially for Starz since he won. Not sure where he and Piper are heading, but it’s fun for Piper to be a coach now while the UK title is still tangled with KLR.
That quick interaction with Gradwell and Mastiff was good, because Mastiff is just shrugging Gradwell off as opposed to letting him get under his skin. That match is going to be great as a fight of “proper British heavyweights,” and could be a chance for Gradwell to get a big win. Jordan VS Williams was great stuff, great amount of story given their history. Two years sure flies, huh? I forgot it had been that long. Williams winning with sneaky tactics was perfect for him, as he is now able to go into the Heritage Cup Division, where A-Kid the current champion is a Face. A-Kid could win, or he could lose to Bate and it’d still be alright, Bate could be a strong Face against Williams, too.
