The Mixed Match Challenge begins the quarterfinals!

Week 7 brings us another big name match up, and it’s all exclusively from Monday Night Raw! Will it be Balor & Banks or Miz & Azuka moving on to the next round? Will tonight’s loser be a shoe-in for the Fan Vote Second Chance?

 

Finn Balor & Sasha Banks VS The Miz & Asuka!

Team Demon Boss represents the Special Olympics while Team #AWESKA represents Rescue Dogs Rock of New York. Which case will move one step closer to that grand prize of $100,000?!

Miz talks it out with Asuka as best he can to go first in the match. She understands and obliges, so Miz starts against Finn. This is a rematch from last night when Miz was forced to face Finn right after losing to Seth Rollins. The two circle but Miz decides to stay back in a corner for a moment. He wants a mic? Miz asks Finn, “Do you know what this means?” And as always, “When my hand goes up, your mouths go shut!” Though Miz doesn’t appreciate the fans knowing his catchphrase so well that they finish it for him. Miz insists on finishing his sentence, but Finn uses that to roll Miz up! TWO, but Finn gets Miz in a small package, TWO. La Mahistrol, TWO. Miz backs off again, and Asuka gets worried. Not for Miz, but for her Streak! This stuff counts, y’know!

Asuka calms down, and Miz calms the fans. He points to Asuka, and the fans cheer for her. Miz says he still has this, so he goes back to Finn. He kicks and punches Finn down, then boots him. Cover, ONE, but Miz’s confidence stays high. He punches Finn again, then whips Finn to ropes. Finn sunsets over, TWO, but Miz decks him with another left. Miz keeps Asuka calm, and brings Finn up to chop him. Finn reverses the whip but Miz sunsets, Finn rolls through to dropkick Miz down. Cover, TWO, and Asuka is back to panicking! She just hops in the ring and rants in Japanese about Miz almost messing up.

Miz and the ref calm her down, and with the fans chanting for it, Miz doesn’t tag! He runs at Finn but gets thrown with arm-drags. Finn gets the armlock and now Miz wants the tag. Miz swings and boots Finn down, Asuka calms down again. Sasha talks trash to Miz, but Miz mocks the Boss’ swag before preparing the “It Kicks”.

But Finn ducks and rolls Miz, TWO! Miz scrambles to his corner, and the third time is the charm, Asuka tags herself in. SHE’s got this.

Sasha comes in to join Asuka, and the fans are all fired up. They tie up, Asuka puts on a headlock. Sasha fights out but Asuka runs her over to shake her hips.

Asuka runs, rolls, but Sasha dodges. Sasha hip tosses Asuka down, then runs and slaps her!

Sasha mocks Asuka’s dance and the fans boo and jeer. Asuka stands up and slaps Sasha back! Asuka then ducks and dodges to retaliate with strikes. She runs and runs Sasha over! Asuka runs and hits Sasha with a hip attack in the corner, then rolls her out for a stiff kick to the back. And with Miz’s permission and the fans’ support, Asuka goes for “It Kicks”!

Asuka kicks and kicks and kicks, but Sasha blocks the buzzsaw to knee her back. Sasha brings Asuka up to whip her, but Asuka runs the ropes to hit a missile dropkick. Asuka keeps Sasha from tagging out, then brings her into the lock. Sasha powers her into a corner and elbows her again and again. Sasha runs in and blocks boots to set Asuka up. Stock Drop hits! Miz checks on Asuka but Sasha covers, TWO!

Sasha keeps on Asuka with a rain of rights, then embraces some of the heat. She drags Asuka up, snap suplex and cover, TWO. Finn encourages Sasha to keep going, so Sasha puts Asuka in a straitjacket hold. The fans rally for Asuka, even as Sasha is confident in herself. Asuka rolls and powers Sasha to a corner now. Asuka keeps trying to break the hold, but Sasha uses the push to throw Asuka backwards into buckles. Sasha then runs in with double knees! Then double knees while Asuka is down! Cover, TWO! The Boss grows frustrated but she walks it off. “When MY hand goes up, your mouth goes shut.” Sasha mocks the It Kicks and uses them on Asuka. However, Asuka ducks and rolls her up, pop-up knee!

Miz looks shocked to see Asuka exhausted but he and Finn both rally for their partners. The fans join in, and both women make their way to their corners. Hot tag to Finn and Miz, and they both come in. Finn rallies with forearms, then the takedown and stomps! Miz gets to a corner while Finn flexes. Finn chops on the run, whips corner to corner and chops again. Another corner to corner but Miz reverses. Finn goes up and over, but Miz boots him back. Miz hops up, Finn rocks him with the swing kick! Then with a Too Sweet, Finn hits the elbow drop DDT! Cover, but Asuka breaks it!

Sasha comes in and goes after Asuka, throwing her out. Finn throws Miz out, then he and Sasha both go to the apron. Sasha throws up a Too Sweet of her own, before jumping on Asuka with double knees! Finn targets Miz, and hits the Penalty Kick! Finn puts Miz back in, but Miz sees the Slingblade coming. Miz tries to turn that into the Finale but Finn turns that into a victory roll. TWO, and Miz gets Finn with the Skull Crushing Finale!

He rolls Finn to the cover, but Sasha breaks it in time. The referee tells Sasha to go to her corner, but then tells Miz it was Two. Miz argues with him, but the ref stands his ground. Miz glares at Finn, runs but into the Slingblade! Finn blasts Miz with the dropkick! Then he climbs up top! He takes aim, Coup de Grace! But Asuka breaks the cover!

Asuka and Sasha go after each other, and Sasha turns Asuka around into the backstabber! Flip over for the Bank Statement crossface! Finn wrestles Miz down for a crossface of his own, DOUBLE crossfaces! Miz and Asuka reach for ropes, but Sasha rolls Asuka back. However, Asuka slips out and puts Sasha in the Asuka Lock! Finn sees this and is distracted by Sasha tapping out. But that doesn’t matter, the men are the legal partners. As such, Miz rolls Finn up, Miz and Asuka win!! The Streak continues while Miz gets payback for Raw! The semifinals just got AWESOME!

Review:

The Fiend vs Randy Orton-

For the intro, Alexa Quinn… Wait. Harley Bliss… No, no. Alexa with face paint skips down and plays a giant jack in the box for the Fiend to appear and attacks Randy right away with a Lariat and brutally attacks Randy with his murderous attacks. Randy gets some separation slightly but Randy actually attacks but to no effect when he attacked The Fiend. Randy tries to get some fight in with the Hangman DDT as he rolls out of a Mandible but again, to no effect. He goes for a second after a failed RKO attempt as The Fiend is still somewhat down. Garvin Stomps did nothing to The Fiend as The Fiend gets some of his own offense going before Randy gets more separation, tossing The Fiend to the outside and goes for a third Hangman DDT when The Fiend pops back up. The Fiend is actually somewhat reeled as Orton coils for the RKO, only to get it countered into a Mandible and Sister Abigail attempt. Alexa pops up with the black tar showing on her face, pouring and distracting The Fiend only to get caught with an RKO and… RANDY WON?! Yowwy—Ah you get it.

Natalya & Tamina vs Shayna Bazler & Nia Jax-

Nattie and Bazler start the match up with a good amount of technical wrestling and holds to gain the upper hand. As Natalya gets the quick upper hand and almost gets the Sharpshooter in on Bazler before tagging Nia. Nia tells Natalya to get Tamina in and now we powerhouses into the match as they go back and forth with strikes to chop each other down. Natalya gets a tag in to take Nia Jax down but Bazler tags in quickly to distract the challengers until she gets caught in a double team. Nattie goes for another Sharpshooter attempt, gets it countered to a cradle but after the kick out, the challengers have been taking Shayna Bazler out. Shayna gets a burst of adrenaline and takes it to Natalya with a knee strike and Nia takes down Tamina on the outside to cut off the possible tag. Shayna now bends and twists Natalya’s ankle to disarm the Sharpshooter. Nia now gets the tag in and goes after Natalya’s legs too.

As Nia and Shayna take it to the lower body of Natalya they get the frequent tags in, making sure that Natalya is dismantled as Nia gets cocky and goes shoulder first into the turnbuckle and Natalya gets a quick burst of strikes while Tamina is still down. The attempt is in vain though as Nia gets the upper hand and goes for a spinebuster and a pinfall after before Tamina goes in to break it up and gets the hot tag after as Nia tags in Bazler. Tamina begins to beat down the champions, mainly Shayna, getting out of the Kirafuda Clutch with a Samoan Drop. Tamina gets the crowd doing but Shayna cuts off the Superfly Splash attempt and tags in Nia to go for a Superplex. Natalya pulls Tamina off the top of Nia’s shoulders and takes down Shayna. Nia hits a double splash and gets into Tamina’s face after the fact which comes back to bite her as Tamina slams her in the middle of the ring. She goes for a pin, only to get a two and maybe get a win again with the Superfly Splash but Nia rolls out of the way. The two get the tag made so Natalya and Shayna are the legal members. Natalya is so focused on Nia that she puts the Sharpshooter on Nia Jax that Shayna slides in and gets the Kirafuda on to get the win against Natalya.

Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn-

Sami Zayn goes to run up to Kevin Owens to fight and gets a Pop-Up Powerbomb for his troubles before rolling out and almost getting an apron bomb until Sami scrambles back into the ring. Kevin Owens doing everything to keep Sami down and just end this quickly before Sami keeps rolling away and catches Owens this time with a Suplex on the apron to take KO out. The Ref starts counting all the way to eight before Owens rolls back into the ring and Sami Zayn starts getting some offense in, even landing a Mishinoku Driver onto KO for a near fall and props KO up on the top rope for a Superplex attempt as the two starts doing their native Hockey fighting on the top rope this time before Kevin gets the advantage, Sami falling and Owens getting a Splash down for another near fall. Kevin keeps his offense going for a heavy neckbreaker against KO’s knee and attempt for a Package Piledriver until Zayn catches it and gets the Exploder in the corner and a trifecta of Brainbusters to get a nearfall.

As Kevin Owens gets in the corner, the two start trading hits to the face over and over again as both men try to get a new advantage. Sami gets Kevin in another superplex attempt but KO reverses it into his own as he gets steam going with two running lariats in the corner before Sami counters it into a Helluva Kick. Sami attempts another, gets caught with two Superkicks and then finally a Stunner to stun the conspiracy theories.

Aftermath: Logan comes in to console Sami, looks over at KO and says that was awesome until Sami Zayn gets shoved and gets a hissy fit. Logan Paul raises KO’s hand as Kevin… channels his inner Stone Cold and stuns Logan Paul. That added a quarter point. Thank you, Kevin.

Sheamus vs Matt Riddle-

Sheamus takes it to Riddle early with the strength advantage early, even after Riddle getting a rapid strikes to the body. Riddle tries to get a form of offense going with a Sleeper but still getting overpowered, getting hit with the Irish Curse Backbreaker and other strikes. Riddle tries to get another form of separation and offense but after a hanging armbar in the ropes, Sheamus does the Ten Beats of the Bohdran and get a near fall. Sheamus goes to the top rope to maybe finished it quick but Riddle catches the Irishman and gets the momentum in his favor after a Spanish Fly, not letting the momentum go to waste with the quick strikes to the body and head of Sheamus, even doing a Jackhammer for a two. Riddle and Sheamus go with a back and forth for who can get ahead before Riddle gets stopped by a Brogue Kick for a nearfall and not letting up with an Alabama Slam for another two count.

They now go to the apron of the ring where Riddle gets the momentum this time, hitting an apron German Suplex and even taking Sheamus down, once of the outside of the ring and inside with a Floating Bro and getting holds onto Sheamus to keep the big man down but to no avail as he gets beaten down. Sheamus goes to the top and lands a White Noise onto Riddle and a double knee drop to get another two. Sheamus now goes to the corner and calls for the Brogue Kick, Riddle senses it and moves, going for a Final Flash Knee, tossed into the ropes to get something going with another springboard moonsault and gets a boot to the head from Sheamus to get the victory.

Apollo Crews vs Big E-

Both men rush outside of the ring to grab Kendo Sticks and beat each other with them as Big E gets the advantage with the striking match over and over as they take it to the outside. Big E tries to use a gong on the outside before Apollo gets a counter in, grabbing another Kendo and striking Big E more before getting thrown into the apron and speared through the ropes, going for a pin as he pushes Apollo back in and getting the steps. Big E taking too much time, meets the apron from Apollo hitting a Death valley Driver and getting a near fall in his efforts, getting the steps in the process. Apollo uses the steps again to drop on Big E from their first encounter to squish Big E’s head in and Big E rolls out of the way and hits a Urinagi from the apron after he moves to the steps. Big E gets angry and gets a table in the ring to set up and getting Apollo back in. Again, taking too much time as Apollo gets a Kendo stick again and beats down Big E quickly to putting him on the table. Crews goes to do a splash but gets nothing but wood as Big E rolls out and hits the Big Ending. As it looks like Big E will get the win until Apollo Crews gets a little help from his new colossus to help him out, hitting a spike and a chokeslam to end Big E’s big reign.

We get a small break before our next two matches with the 2021 Hallo of Fame this time with RVD, Molly Holly, The Great Khali, Eric Bischoff, Ozzy Osoburne, Warrior Recipient Rich Hering and “The Big Red Machine”, “The Devil’s Favorite Demon” Kane.

Rhea Ripley vs Asuka-

Asuka tries to get an early advantage with her agility but it’s back and forth for a good amount of time until Asuka takes it to Rhea in the corner and to the outside but Rhea gets the power advantage shortly and begins to take it to Asuka surprisingly, making sure she says down and even smacks her to incite her. Beginning to do some short arm Lariats and Asuka gets a leg clutch attempt but Rhea is just too strong and powers out of the hold and into a pinfall attempt as she actually is… slowing Asuka and making her look tired in the match. Ripley starts to do shoulder thrusts to Asuka’s back, weakening before setting her to the top rope. Asuka actually starts to fight back and get a split from Rhea’s attacks and knocks her down with some flight and after a near fall, continues the typical Asuka offense, taking it to the challenger and gets Rhea reeled as Asuka goes to the ropes again. Rhea catches it this time as she kicks her off the ropes, going to the outside and apron as Rhea gets the advantage back with a facebreaker on the apron to Asuka. Asuka tries anything to get a break away from Rhea Ripley, even going as far as doing a DDT to the outside from the apron. Rhea gets back in from an eight by the ref and Asuka actually gets a lot of strikes in before Rhea takes control again momentarily  and both ladies attempt their submissions, only for each to break them. Asuka gets more of her submissions and attempts to finish it with her kicking combination but Rhea catches the last kick and lands the Riptide to get the shocking win.

Daniel Bryan vs Edge vs Roman Reigns-

Roman sucker punches Bryan early and Edge and roman trade for a bit. Daniel get in the middle of the fight and gets dumped to the outside as Jey Uso superkicks Daniel Bryan as Roman does the same thing to Edge and gets a superkick too. As the numbers for Roman are too much for the other two, they have to try to get a form of a split and Edge does it, taking out Jey Uso momentarily and takes it to Roman now, going back and forth from the apron and barricade before Edge turns to Jey Uso, grabbing the steel steps and delivers and DDT on the steps as medical staff help Jey out of the match. Daniel Bryan and Edge get into the ring now as they go back and forth in the ring. After Edge takes Daniel out for a moment, Roman comes back to fight Edge from the apron. Daniel Bryan slides through and takes down Roman from the apron to face off against Edge. Daniel gets a good amount of offense in and even tries to do a dive onto Roman but gets caught and takes Bryan out. Roman now gets a beat down on Edge for a good amount of time when a Superman Punch attempt gets caught in an Edgecution. Edge goes to set up the Spear but gets rocked by a Superman Punch. Roman now goes for a Spear but Edge gets out of it with a Sunset Flip pin for a two. Both men go to the ropes and hit each other with Spears before Daniel Bryan returns a minute after for diving headbutts but to no avail on a victory.

Daniel now setting up for his Yes Kicks and as always misses his kick as Roman pushes Daniel away as all men go to a corner. Edge gets hit by a Running Knee from DB and Roman wants to capitalize with a Superman Punch but Bryan catches him and finishes the Yes Kick combo and even puts Roman in the Labell Lock but Edge breaks the submission to save the match. Edge now is going to get locked in with the Labell Lock but Roman breaks that shortly after and just mollywhops Daniel Bryan before doing a powerbomb to Daniel Bryan, onto Edge. Roman kicks Daniel Bryan out of the ring, plotting his next move on the outside, the crowd pissing Roman off with a “Roman sucks” chant as he powerbombs Daniel Bryan through the announce table, praising his work and gets leveled by Edge’s Spear.

Edge rolls Roman back in and grabs two chair, going to play a song for the Chief before Roman catches Edge’s chair and they two fight. Edge pulls Roman into the rope and hit him in the neck as Edge puts the Crossface on Roman. Roman looks like he will tap but Daniel Bryan returns and grabs the hand before putting the Labell Lock on the other side as both men yell to let their holds go to go into headbutts after. (Kind of… fucking dumb if two guys with neck problems are just headbutting each other)

Daniel Bryan starts to taking it to Edge but Edge gets a counter and takes Daniel Bryan out with a spear and hitting one to Roman too. Edge goes for the pin and Bryan pulsl the ref out to stop the count and Edge is pissed off. He grabs the chairs again and puts them in the ring as Edge beats the hell out of them with the chairs before setting up Con-Chair-Tos for both men. Edge lands one of Daniel Bryan before Jey Uso comes back in and stops Edge. Edge gets angry to Uso and beats him down until Roman hits Edge with a spear and grabs the chairs under Edge and hits the Con-Chair-To onto Edge, stacks them together and pins both for a defense.

 

Overall Score: 7.5/10

And like that I retire…

…I kid. There are still final thoughts. The main event delivered to close the show, the matches for tonight were… good. It build up to it but the main thing of the night was the Main Event. It’s actually showing that Roman is beginning to slip here. A lot of help is needed for him to retain but it still played out beautifully. Owens and Sami was great, the US Championship match was good. Apollo finally getting a reward for his actions is a great thing to see. The matches that fell flat for me were the opening two. I miracled into guessing Randy won but, we knew it was more of an OMG thing and not a “this is a wrestling match” kind of moment. We shall see how everything plays out later on in the week because we all know that the biggest shows for WWE are the Raw, SmackDown and I guess now NXT shows after WrestleMania.

And now I will retire…
