PLAY BY PLAY

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

The Big Dog opens Raw in Sioux Falls, coming off a loss to The Revival alongside Bobby Lashley, but also saving his Shield Brother, Seth Rollins from Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre. Roman speaks on the “extremely talented” duo, and admits he never thought he’d lose to The Revival. He did have the worst tag team partner of all time, though, in Bobby Lashley. For whatever reason, Kurt Angle wants Roman to team with “Bob” again. But Roman just wants to fight “Bob.” And if he doesn’t get to fight at Extreme Rules, he’ll fight him tonight! “Bob” is a fool, thinking he’s The Guy, when 10 years ago he wasn’t because he couldn’t handle it. And 10 years from now, Lashley still won’t be The Guy because ROMAN is the Guy! Roman is the Big Dog how runs the Yard!

But wait, here comes Ziggler & McIntyre! Ziggler wants to understand something: Roman is someone else is an egomaniac. The guy who makes it all about him, walking around like he owns the place. Roman calls Ziggler’s ring His Yard. Roman acts like the world has to go through him. McIntyre says Roman couldn’t help himself in “playing the hero”, even for Rollins. The former Intercontinental Champion, Seth Rollins. But that’s what brings them out here. If Roman wants to make all of this all about him, “that’s fine by us.” He stuck his nose in their business, so it’s their turn. Roman fights both Ziggler & McIntyre! But that’s 2v1 and they get Roman down on the mat. So here comes Seth Rollins!

Rollins evens the numbers, and kicks McIntyre out of the ring. Rollins gets Ziggler down but McIntyre saves the Show-Off. McIntyre & Ziggler are in retreat while the Shield Brothers regroup. Roman is getting pulled in different directions, where will he put his focus?

 

Rollins & Roman find Angle backstage.

They want to settle this with Ziggler & McIntyre asap! Angle will accept their request, and schedule a match for next week. Next week? That doesn’t sit right with Roman. Just do it now! No, Roman has to team with Lashley against The Revival. Well, okay, since they want it so bad, they’ll get it tonight. Roman & Rollins get a chance at revenge, will it go their way? And what of Lashley and the #TopGuys, Dash & Dawson?

 

WOKEN Hardy VS Curt Axel w/ Bo Dallas!

The WOKEN Wisdom is without the Eater of Worlds, who was in an accident of automobiles over the previous day of Frige. But WOKEN Axel says last week’s WONDERFUL battle will forever be etched in the multiverse. But a galactic glitch will bring a new Twist of Fate. Bo Wyatt adds that his Woken Wisdom Friend must face the ferocious B Team all by his lonesome. Wait, the song! “You may never truly be alone, because he’s got the whole~ world~, in his hands.”

For those unclear on what’s happening, yes, it is a rematch from last week’s match where a simple ACCIDENT cost Woken Hardy the win. Can Axel keep his team “undefeated” another week? Or will he be DELETED?

They tie up, Hardy gets the headlock, then shifts to a roll up. ONE, and Axel backs away to a corner. Axel and Hardy circle while fans chant DELETE. Axel gets the headlock and the takedown to a facelock. Bo coaches Axel, but Hardy reverses to DELETE Shoulder Breakers. Hardy wrenches the wrist, then whips Axel to ropes. He runs Axel over with a back elbow, covers, TWO. Hardy brings Axel up again, for haymakers. He keeps on Axel with those makers of hay, then whips him again. Axel reverses for a back elbow of his own. Axel brings Hardy up for buckle bumps and stomps. He grinds a forearm into Hardy’s face, then backs off at 4.

Hardy comes out with a kick and a headlock. Axel powers out but Bo swipes at the feet. Hardy fights them both off, but Axel denies the Twist. Hardy chants DELETE while we go to break.

Hardy climbs up, and drops the ax handle. He climbs up again, and drops an elbow! Cover, TWO!

Bo is relieved, but Hardy prepares the Twist. Axel stands up but Bo distracts from the apron. Axel hits back, whips but is reversed. Hardy ends up going up and into the post! Axel then hits his twisting neckbreaker! Cover, Axel wins!

Winner: Curt Axel, by pinfall

Just a couple weeks away from Extreme Rules and their Raw Tag Team Championships, and The B Team is on a WONDERFUL roll! Will they dethrone the Deleters of Worlds as easily as they won tonight?

 

Rollins and Roman prepare backstage.

Not only is Roman having two matches tonight, but he still doesn’t have an Extreme Rules match. Meanwhile, Rollins has a 30-Minute Ironman Match against Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship. Speaking of the double header, Lashley comes in to talk with Roman alone. “You have some huge brass ones calling me an egomaniac.” Is Roman Superman or something? No, he’s a heat magnet, and expect for his “brother”, no one likes him.

Lashley doesn’t like Roman, either. And as much as he’d rather fight Roman at Extreme Rules, they have to work together. Roman tells Lashley to shut up. Roman wills tart and finish the match because he’ll win it. All Lashley has to do is flash that fake smile and collect the check. He better, or Lashley will hold him responsible again. Is that a threat? Yes, it is. Can these two work together at all tonight?

 

Raw has footage of Sasha’s & Bayley’s first counseling session.

The Legit Boss and Huggable One both have 10 o’clock meetings with whoever is in 6A. They argue over who actually has the appointment, but it’s DR. SHELBY! He’ll be helping them in their paired friendship counseling. Let’s enter the Friend Zone!

To start, Shelby calls it the Friend Zone because the only rule is to be accepting. Love, helping, joy, sharing, time, honesty, respect. Those are the principles of friendship. Can Bayley & Sasha survive each other long enough to pass the class?

 

Titus Worldwide VS The Authors of Pain!

While veterans Titus & Apollo were just trying to give the younger Akam & Rezar advice, the former NXT Tag Team Champions didn’t want it. Then when AoP brutally beat down the Gibson Brothers, Titus Worldwide came to the rescue. Now these two teams will battle directly to see if the main roster rookies really do have something to learn.

The bell rings and Titus starts against Rezar. They power up and Titus puts Rezar in a headlock. Rezar powers out and collides with Titus, and is actually staggered to the corner. Apollo tags in and hits a big splash in the corner. But Apollo is put in the AoP corner and Akam tags in. Akam throws Apollo, then whips. Apollo goes up and over, impressed as always. Things speed up and Apollo dropkicks Akam. Akam staggers and tags in Rezar, then lifts him up for Rezar to throw down. Rezar trash talks in Albanian, then stalks Apollo to a corner. Rezar brings Apollo up to ram shoulders into his back, then throws him out to another corner. He trash talks Apollo, then throws him again! Rezar covers, ropebreak.

Apollo rolls up Akam, TWO! Powerslam from Akam, then tag to Rezar. They drag Apollo up, LAST CHAPTER! Cover, AoP win!

Winners: The Authors of Pain, Rezar pinning

That’s all Akam & Rezar wrote on Titus Worldwide! They have more than enough to defeat a veteran tag team, how long until they’re tag team champions?

 

Roman and Rollins talk again.

How did the talk with “Bob” go? Roman doesn’t really know, he didn’t listen to the guy. That aside, these two are on the same page for their match up next.

 

Kevin Owens arrives a little late.

Perhaps it has to do with needing a new rental car after Braun Strowman flipped the last one as more of a prank. The valet says Kevin can’t park here, he’ll need his keys to relocate. Kevin says “No chance.” Then he puts up his hood, in hopes Strowman won’t spot him. Will he make it through the rest of the night? Or will he #GetTheseHands all over again?

 

Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns VS Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler!

The Architect & The Big Dog are united in wanting to shut up and shut down the Show-Off & The Scottish Stud. Ziggler and Rollins will meet again 1v1 in an Ironman match at Extreme Rules, can their friends help them gain momentum before then?

Dash & Dawson keep Roman down while Ziggler & McIntyre hit Rollins with Zig-Zag Claymore! Then Roman is brought into the ring by The Revival. Fans boo while they bring Roman up, for SHATTER MACHINE!

Will Rollins be okay in time for the Ironman match? Will Roman be okay for his second match later tonight?

 

Kevin meets with  Angle backstage.

Something has to be done about Bruan Strowman. They cant have someone running around doing whatever they want! Well, they settle things in the ring, so does Kevin want a match? No! He just wants Strowman to go away. Put him in counseling! No, suspend him! No, FIRE him! Actually, Angle feels like Kevin should face Strowman tonight. The worst case scenario for Kevin has happened, will he survive Strowman tonight?

 

Constable Baron Corbin heads to the ring.

After their tag team dysfunction led to a loss, “Stephanie McMahon’s personally appointed” Constable Corbin has words for the Extraordinary Finn Balor. He is here to help. It doesn’t matter who they are or who they are, everyone needs help to reach their full potential. If a boss chews you out, they’re trying to help. If a teacher sends you to detention or a police officer gives you a ticket, they’re just helping. Corbin is constable to help Angle be a better GM and all the superstars reach their full potential.

Though, there’s always someone to proud to accept the help. Finn was exhausted so Corbin tagged in, yet Finn kicks him down. That’s why Corbin pulled him from the ring to talk strategy. They ended up fighting, and they got counted out. Such behavior is “inappropriate and unprofessional.” Therefore, Corbin invites Finn out here so Finn can apologize to Corbin. Finn accepts the invitation and does head to the ring.

Corbin thanks Finn for cooperating. This doesn’t have to be hard, just admit you were wrong and that you’ll never do that again. Finn doesn’t speak, so Corbin apologizes first. When he hit Finn, he was just trying to communicate. He forgets he’s so much bigger, stronger and tougher, so he’s sorry. Finn’s turn. Finn says he’s sorry, that his comments about the vest got Corbin fired from TGI Friday’s.

Corbin gets it, Finn is angry over a loss two weeks ago. Corbin will be the bigger man, because he actually is. Finn, say you’re sorry. Finn does feel Corbin needs an apology. Form whoever gave Corbin that haircut. “Listen, you little twerp!” He knows it’s hard out there for guys like Finn, who doesn’t get the opportunities or the pay like Corbin does. Stephanie made Corbin a constable for a reason, so give him the respect he deserves! Fans say “No! No!” but Finn says, “I’m sorry. But you stopped deserving anyone’s respect the day you became Stephanie’s stooge!” Corbin hits Finn! He drags Finn up, then whips Finn, but Finn dodges to Slingblade! Then to wreck Corbin with a dropkick! Finn climbs up, takes aim, but Corbin retreats. This isn’t over between them, who will be the sorry one when it’s all over?

 

Elias plays when the Riott Squad appear.

Is the Drifter performing tonight? For Sioux Falls? No. But for Liv & Sarah, he has a song in mind. Liv & Sarah like it, they #StartARiott! Thanks, Elias! These two are headed out, even with their Squad Leader down with injury. Can they represent for Ruby to the fullest tonight?

 

Ember Moon VS Liv Morgan w/ Sarah Logan!

The Prophecy of Flame has been on fire since coming to Raw, but so has the Riott Squad since the Superstar Shake-Up. Team leader Ruby is out with a leg injury, but that doesn’t mean the riot has to end. Will #LivStrong win strong against the rising War Goddess? Or will Ember Eclipse the wild ones tonight?

The bell rings and Ember ties up with Liv. Liv powers Ember to ropes but Ember standing switches. Liv gets a headlock, but Ember powers out. She still gets whipped but counters the hip-toss with an arm-drag. Ember sweeps then kicks Liv down, cover, ONE. Ember grabs Liv in a facelock, but Sarah coaches Liv up. Liv slips out to rock Ember with a right! Liv puts the headlock back on, and gives a noogie. Ember endures, but Liv gets the takeover. Ember sits up and rolls Liv off. Liv sings but Ember springboards to crossbody! Cover, TWO! Liv rolls away while we go to break.

Raw returns and Liv thrashes Ember around in a full nelson. Fans rally and Ember gets up. Ember breaks free with butt bumps, then slips down to roll Liv into an ankle lock! But Liv throws Ember into ropes! Then she rocks Ember with an enziguri! Cover, TWO, and Liv grows frustrated. She slams Ember’s face off the mat, then drags her back into the full nelson. Liv thrashes Ember around again, but fans still rally. Ember powers up again and arm-drags Liv off. Liv comes back with a forearm, but so does Ember. Liv backs Ember down and knocks her off her feet! She stalks Ember, then drags her up. “You are nothing!” Liv goes for a bulldog, but Ember puts Liv into buckles, then STOMPS her! Ember throws Liv to the center, then climbs up. Sarah panics, ECLIPSE!! Cover, Ember wins!

Winner: Ember Moon, by pinfall

Sarah rushes the ring, but Ember gets away. The Squad is furious, but the Moon rises higher and higher. Can Ember reach the top and challenge the champion in the future?

 

Raw looks at more of the friendship counseling between Sasha, Bayley & Dr. Shelby.

The doctor seems to be at his wit’s end already, and this is just the first day. They spent hours, can they just go? It’s clearly not working. Shelby says we know how Sasha feels, but how doe sBayley feel? But Bayley can’t answer, it’s Sasha’s role to play. It will be role-playing, Sasha is Bayley and Bayley is Sasha. So how doe s”Bayley” feel? Sasha puts on her best Bayley and says “when I grow up, I’m gonna be a champion! Not because I deserve it, but because I collected a bunch of autographs!” Bayley acts like she’s five and is everyone’s friend, and loves hugs, yay~! Okay… So how does “Sasha” feel to hear that?

Bayley puts on Sasha’s jewelry and says that if no one calls her the The Boss, she’ll stab you in the back. If you get ahead of her, she stabs you in the back! It doesn’t matter, she’ll just stab you in the back! And her neighbor’s mailman’s cousin is Snoop Dog! The Boss~! Is that funny? They argue again, but Shelby tries to bring up the principles of friendship. They both tell him to shut up, so he loses his cool! Will this ever sort itself out?

 

Bobby Lashley & Roman Reigns VS The Revival!

It may be the third time around, but that’s just to prove the #TopGuys didn’t win on a fluke. Of course, this time won’t exactly be fair with Dash & Dawson beating Roman up earlier. Will they get a guaranteed win tonight over Roman & Lashley? Or will Roman personally see to them not making it out of the ring?

Lashley lets Roman start, and Dawson circles with The Big Dog. Fans duel again as Roman and Dawson tie up. Roman powers Dawson to a corner, but then Roman gets back as Dawson tries to sucker punch the ribs. Dawson talks strategy with Dash before getting Roman in a waistlock then wristlock. Roman reverses, and puts on a headlock. Dawson fights back with body shots, then kicks. Dawson keeps on Roman’s ribs, which he and Dash beat up to begin with. Roman hits back with uppercuts and haymakers, sending Dawson out of the ring. The #TopGuys regroup, but Lashley wants in. Roman refuses, his pride/ego won’t let him. Dawson returns, and Dash flanks him from the outside. The ref keeps Dash back but Dawson gets Roman with body shots!

Dawson tags Dash in but Roman fights back. Roman throws Dawson out, but Dash drops him with a dropkick. Dash knees Roman in the ribs at the ropes, and Lashley knew this was going to happen. Dash stomps away, then tags Dawson. They drag Roman to the apron for Dawson to club away at those ribs. Dawson brings Roman back up and in, then kicks the ribs. Fans chant for Bobby, but Dawson puts Roman in body scissors. Dawson also grinds his forearm into Roman’s face and traps the arms so Roman can’t grab ropes. Roman endures the squeeze, but he won’t give up. Fans rally, and Roman gets up. Roman hits back, but Dawson shoves. Dawson’s hip-toss is blocked, so he lariats Roman down. Tag to Dash, human weapon leg drop! Cover, TWO, but very close. Lashley grows concerned, more for his own win-loss record than Roman’s ribs.

Dash keeps on Roman, then tags Dawson in. Dawson kicks but Roman blocks to throw a haymaker. Roman keeps throwing hands, then whips. Dawson reverses the whip and kicks Roman in the ribs again. Dawson whips but Roman reverses to send Dawson into buckles! Fans cheer for Lashley, but Roman refuses to tag. Dash tags in but runs into the leaping lariat. Dawson gets a guillotine leg drop before he can get in! Roll up on Roman, TWO! SUPERMAN PUNCH! Cover, but Dawson breaks it. Lashley decides to just come in! He gives Dawson a spinebuster, then throws Dash out before giving Dawson another spinebuster! Lashley returns to the corner and wants the tag, but Roman still refuses. Roman aims at Dash, goes to howl, but Dawson grabs his leg! The Revival swarm on Roman in the corner! The referee rings the bell!

Winners: Reigns & Lashley, by disqualification

Dash & Dawson keep stomping Roman, but Lashley leaves him?! Lashley told Roman his ego would do this to him, so he lets it happen. Roman gets another SHATTER MACHINE! Then, a SUPER Splash! The Alpha Male lets the Big Dog suffer for his own ego. He and Roman still get the win in the record books, but we all know the truth. Can Roman recover if he ever wants to run His Yard again?

 

Kevin brings the “chaos” up to Angle.

This can’t keep happening. The first thing to do: cancel his match with Strowman. He’s right, right? No, that match is still on. Kevin can help Angle organize his office! Or get him Shania Twain tickets! He’s friends with her, you know. Kevin is not getting out of his match. Fine! You don’t deserve Shania tickets. Kevin storms off, preparing for the worst.

 

Angle meets with Roman.

Roman wants to know what he has to do? Don’t worry, the match is set. Lashley asked for this match, too. Then they better start looking for a replacement, because Roman is going to lay Lashley’s “punk ass” out.

 

Mojo Rawley VS No Way Jose!

The man with #KillerInstinct refused this rematch last week, but after sucker punching the Fighting Fiesta, seems both men have no way around it. But Mojo says he made himself clear last week. Mojo paid the price already just to lace up his boots in a WWE ring. And what does Mojo do with the same opportunity? He dances and dances. So they’re just supposed to have a rematch? No way, Jose. Jose swings but Mojo knocks him down again! Then he goes up to the conga line, grabs the guy in a cheeseburger costume, and throws him! Then the POUNCE! That wasn’t Todd, but still.

Jose goes after Mojo again, but is rammed into the LED apron again and again and again! Mojo finishes it with a choke slam to the apron! He leaves Jose and the cheeseburger down and out. Will Mojo continue to show no mercy to anyone undeserving?

 

Exclusive interview with Ronda Rousey.

While the Baddest Woman on the Planet is suspended for 30 days, she can still talk. She’s excited to hear Alexa Bliss has to defend against Nia Jax. Ronda won’t have to stay away from a PPV, she promises to be front row at Extreme Rules!

 

Mickie James w/ Alexa Bliss VS Nia Jax!

The Goddess is running out of time before having to face the Irresistible Force, as well as having Ronda on the sidelines from the suspension. Can the six-time former champion soften the challenger up for Alexa? Or is she just a lamb being led to slaughter for the Goddess’ sake?

Nia knows when she defeated Alexa back at Wrestlemania, she thought she was done with Alexa. But she wasn’t. Then when she squashed Alexa at Backlash, that should’ve been the end. But wrong again. Then, the “legal” MITB cash-in brings us back to square one. “But this needs to end.” At Extreme Rules, with Ronda ringside, it will. In fact, Angle made their rematch… Oh yes, AN EXTREME RULES MATCH! But tonight, Mickie brought the little pest out here with her. Nia brought some back-up, too! It’s Natty! Will the Queen of Harts keep the “pesky” Goddess out of this match?

The bell rings and Mickie throws hands on Nia, but Nia shoves her away. Mickie kicks and throws more hands, but Nia headbutts her down. Mickie tries a third time, but Nia powers her into buckles. Nia squashes Mickie, then throws her across the way. Mickie crawls to ropes, but Nia is on her. Mickie elbows and kicks Nia back, then runs, but into the bulldozing! Nia stalks Mickie but Mickie gets to the apron. Nia swipes at Mickie but Mickie gets away to the barriers. Mickie tries to run when Nia pursues, but Nia grabs her and brings her into a fireman’s carry. Alexa saves Mickie but Natty reinforces Nia. It’s a stand-off while we go to break.

Raw returns and Mickie has Nia down and out on the outside. Nia climbs up but Mickie baseball slides Nia back down. Mickie goes after the leg with swift kicks, then gets back into the ring. Nia slowly gets in and still beats the count at 8. Mickie goes after the leg more, and Alexa mocks Nia’s pain. Fans rally while Nia endures more kicks. Nia puts Mickie in a corner but Mickie hits back again. Mickie kicks and kicks, keeping Nia down on her knees. Nia pushes Mickie but Mickie keeps kicking. Mickie runs and dropkicks Nia’s legs out! Mickie has Nia in a corner, and hotshots the leg! Nia writhes in pain, but Natty keeps the fans rallying. Mickie grabs the leg to drop an elbow on the knee. Nia endures and clubs Mickie back.

Nia grabs hair but Mickie grinds her elbow into the knee. They keep fighting on the mat. Nia gets Mickie in body scissors! Fans rally as Nia squeezes Mickie. Mickie reaches ropes and gets the ropebreak. Nia holds on but lets go at 4. Mickie throws hands but Nia gives a headbutt. Nia rallies with lariats, then pulls Mickie up. She shrieks as she puts Mickie in a corner, but she runs into boots. Mickie goes for the Mick-canrana, but Nia blocks. Mickie pops out and kicks the legs again. She aims at Nia, swings the kick, but Nia blocks it! Mickie slaps Nia, but Nia brings her up for the sit-out powerbomb! Alexa distracts the ref, so Natty trips her up! Nia sneers at Alexa, then goes back to Mickie, Samoan Drop! Cover, Nia wins!

Winner: Nia Jax, by pinfall

The Irresistible Force toughs it out, and with a little help from her friend, she stands tall. With the rules brought to their extreme, does Alexa stand a chance against her archenemy?

 

Kevin is trying, but it’s not working.

Why isn’t his meditating working? Jinder Mahal explains, but Kevin just can’t get it. Find inner peace. You must repeat the mantra. But he doesn’t want to. Charly comes over and asks if he’s shaken up. Kevin isn’t shaken! Just surprised by her is all. Kevin is glad he’s facing Strowman tonight! He is? Yes! Why would he be shaken up> Just because Strowman looks at him like a slab of bacon? Some people would be terrified of a monster, but Kevin’s faced the monster before. Kevin feels he knows everything about the monster now. He’ll go in that ring, and show the world how you destroy a monster! He goes back to meditating with Mahal, will it be enough to prepare for Strowman?

 

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

How does he feel about getting Roman reigns in a match at Extreme Rules? We all saw it, Roman was feeding his own ego not tagging out. Roman got what he deserved in that tag match. The only reason Roman got what he’s gotten is because Lashley hasn’t been here. Roman’s “yard” would’ve just been a concrete patch in a trailer park. Will Lashley take over the Yard as the new Guy? Or will Roman reaffirm his Empire?

 

Kevin Owens VS Braun Strowman!

The Prizefighter wanted to be a friend, but when Strowman refused, he no longer wanted a thing to do with the #MonsterintheBank. The problem is, Strowman isn’t finished with Kevin, as he literally flipped Kevin’s car with his bare hands. Win or lose, will they be finished after tonight?

Raw returns one more time, and this match begins. Kevin fires up and ties up with Strowman, but Strowman just shoves him to a corner. Strowman roars, so Kevin bails out. Kevin hears the ring count begin, and he runs away! And he doesn’t come back. The count hits 10, Strowman wins!

Winner: Braun Strowman, by count out

But Strowman is now in hot pursuit! Kevin hurries to get out of the building and back to his car. But where are his keys?! He likely left them with his luggage in the locker room. Kevin isn’t sure what to do, so he tries to find a hiding place. He has no choice: portapotty. Strowman traces Kevin’s steps, but can’t find him. The valet attendant runs away, but Strowman keeps searching. Strowman walks down the parking lot, but can’t find Kevin. Fans chant “portapotty!” in hopes he hears. Strowman searches more, but that’s when he smells something. He smells Kevin’s fear! And more other things…? “Anybody in there?” “Go away.” So Strowman tapes up the portapotty! “I told you I’d find you!” Kevin panics and begs for mercy, but Strowman pulls the portapotty around, into the arena!

Kevin continues to beg, but he can’t do a thing as Strowman pulls the potty along. Strowman goes all the way back to ringside, knocking down anything in his way. Strowman shakes the portapotty, then drags it up to the stage. Kevin continues to beg, but Strowman ignores him. Strowman brings the portapotty across the stage, then makes sure Kevin is still conscious in there. He shoves the portapotty closer to the edge, but not all the way over. Strowman backs away, and fans know what’s coming next. Strowman runs at the portapotty and RAMS it off the stage!!

Kevin is likely battered, bruised and a mess… Fans fitting chant “holy sh*t!” The Monster looks down upon Kevin as security and medics drag him out of the wreckage and waste. Between the pain and the humiliation, will Kevin ever show his face around Raw again?

 


 

My Thoughts:

I think Raw has relapsed to the lackluster stuff from last year. Like, I think last Summer was just as bad for Raw as this Summer has been. As if fans didn’t have enough reason to dislike Roman being shoved down our throats, he gets a double-header tonight given his stories crossing over. Him having a match with Rollins against McIntyre-Ziggler would’ve been good instead of yet another team-up with Lashley, and to his character’s credit, Roman said as much. But Angle insisted and we got a double dose of The Big Dog. Though it also went in character for The Revival to attack. I just wish Roman had stayed out of the second match for whatever reason, like he was that beat up or Angle thought better of it. But at least we get Lashley VS Roman for the sake of pride.

The B Team is on the weirdest roll. Axel goes up 2-0 on Hardy (likely meant to be Bo VS Bray if Bray didn’t get in that car accident), but there’s still time before their title match. I still don’t think B Team will win, but if they do, holy crap that’d be shocking. Meanwhile, it was a given that the AoP were going to win against Titus Worldwide. I hope for AoP’s sake that they’re in the title scene going towards Summerslam, even if it’s in a crazy free-for-all with The Revival and I guess even Ziggler-McIntyre. Another unfortunate accident was Ruby Riott’s, hers might be a bit more serious. Liv & Sarah still hold their own as an act, but going by how Ember won tonight, their numbers game is obviously their strong suit, and being a woman down, it won’t work as well as it used to.

Hooray for having Dr. Shelby back to help Bayley & Sasha. Though, unlike Team Hell No uniting, this will (and should) have a complete meltdown and we get an Extreme Rules match. I was hoping this would be the one to be the Extreme Rules match, but that goes to Nia VS Alexa with Ronda in the front row, so that Ronda can get involved without the match being thrown out. Extreme Rules really should just be a PPV where all matches are No DQ by default, but WWE doesn’t want to risk (more) injuries. Nia and Mickie did great tonight, and if the team of Nia & Natty holds up, possible team for a possible Women’s Tag Division? Lastly, Strowman and Kevin basically save the night with that “match” and the portapotty spot at the end there. I bet they’ll have another match at the PPV that Kevin again won’t want.

My Score: 7.8/10

Andrew’s Stardom 5 Star Grand Prix Red Stars Ratings & Review: Day 7 & 8

Published

on

We get another combined article because of the way Stardom likes to stagger matches in this tournament.

Day 7 actually didn’t have any Blue Star matches at all, so now the articles will be titled a little differently. I need that Rick and Morty clip about getting your shit together and direct it at Stardom booking. Oh wait, I can!

via GIPHY

 

So with that established, I guess we should look at the matches to come. Tam is eliminated but still has 3 matches to go. So she can go from a measly 2 to a respectable 8 if she can put a few wins together. Utami and Rachael however are still very much in the thick of things, and even face one another on Day 8.

Let’s find if anyone else gets eliminated, or if we continue to have the top half stay alive.

 

Day 7

Rachael Ellering vs Tam Nakano

Rachael’s promo is fake and over enthusiastic, whereas Tam’s was realistic and a little bubbleheaded. So it’s really hard for me to ever connect to Ellering’s promos, cause she’s not convincing and her matches thus far have been…umm…shall we say, sub par. So sadly Tam seems to be in the plucky underdog role this year and always getting close with not much of a pay off. So let’s she if she picks up a win to play spoiler, or continues to come up short.

I have no clue what it is about most of Rachael’s matches, but they are hard to watch. Rachael’s Pump Kick that she over uses never looks impactful, she doesn’t take or sell offense well, and it’s just a schlog. This match was no different.

Tam’s kicks are usually crisp, but they hit awkwardly and slowly. Tam even went for a bottom rope assisted Back Body Drop, but Rachael’s foot cause the middle rope and it just looked sloppy. Tam still sold her back, while Rachael focused it, so that was good.

We also see a decent barrage at the end of the match with some false finish rollups, Rachael’s Bossman Slam and then Ellering finally finishes this with the Fallaway Powerbomb.

Winner: Ellering via Fallaway Powerbomb

Rating: * 1/2

 

Kagetsu vs Kimber Lee

Kimber always has this oddly endearing way of cutting a promo. She talks fairly slowly (the way people do when you’re speaking a language people might not understand), which I find ridiculous, but she says all the correct babyface things. Kagetsu however has a skull mask on her head, pops up into frame and just starts talking casually about things. She just wants to end the match, eat some good food and head to Osaka. It’s casually dismissive of Kimber, but not cruel, perfect tweener kind of temperature.

Kagetsu takes the early advantage and does the cocky heel thing by throwing Kimber to the outside. Hazuki and Sumire get in a few cheap shots before rolling her back in. Kagetsu takes a drink of water and then we get her water spit/mist spot. Which I’m still not sure why that isn’t a disqualification, but I like it, so I’m not questioning it.

After the initial cockiness, Kimber takes advantage of Kagetsu taking her foot of the gas and puts together some offense. A few well placed kicks and suplexes lead to the Swanton Bomb attempt, but Kimber misses. After a little more struggle, Kagetsu eventually hits a Chokeslam and then enough of the Oedo Coaster to get the pinfall.

Not Kagetsu’s best work, but it was a fairly short match and Kimber isn’t positioned as a threat in this tournament.

Winner: Kagetsu via Oedo Coaster

Rating: *** 1/4

 

Day 8

Kimber Lee vs Tam Nakano

The opening promos are pretty low energy for both women. Kimber talks about being eliminated but fighting for herself and Tam tries her best to psych herself up. The lack of points is effecting both of these women. Who will get the ball moving to end on a high note?

Not a bad match, just fairly short. Given that all of the Grand Prix matches have a 15 minute time limit, even the longer ones are a little short. Both women utilize a fair amount of kicks and flexibility in their offense, so the mirror aspect was on full display.

Kimber does her split spot, Tam goes for a Buzzsaw Kick, but Kimber blocks it and tries to sweep the leg, but Tam does a split and they both start throwing forearms from the split position. Kimber hits a kick combination first, which drops Tam but only for two. In her opening promo Tam put some emphasis on not wanting to lose to kicks, since those are kinda her thing.

Maintaining advantage, Kimber goes to the top rope but Tam shows some fight. Eventually hitting the Avalanche Snapmare and going up for her Diving Idol Knee, for only a near fall. After a few more close calls, Kimber catches Tam coming off the ropes for a Brain Buster, pulls her to a corner and lands the Swanton Bomb for the pinfall.

Valiant efforts in all her matches, but Tam really can’t catch a break.

Winner: Kimber via Swanton Bomb

Rating: ** 1/4

 

Rachael Ellering vs Utami Hayayshishita

Well, ya know I’m usually overly disinterested in whatever Rachael’s been doing, but this match was a little different. She basically got to play the heel since she was being very tough on Utami and showing some personality while arguing with the referee. So when it comes down to Rachael’s involvement, it wasn’t the thing that brought the match down, for a change.

However, after the initial burst from Rachael and the playing up a few strikes on the outside, the match never kick it into another gear. It basically was treading water for the last half. Signature moves were hit, Utami landed her Sleeper Hold takeover into the Coquina Clutch, but Rachael got out of it. I’m guess the high point was supposed to be Rachael hitting a Superplex, but nothing felt important, desperate or impressive.

The match ends just as Utami cinches in an Inside Cradle, but the time expires. All of the draws in this tournament are a little off putting.

Winner: Time Limit Draw

Rating: ***

 

Red Stars Standings:

Kagetsu 4-1-1 (9 Points)
Rachael Ellering 4-1-1 (9 Points)
Jungle Kyona 3-1-2 (8 Points)
Utami Hayashishita 3-1-2 (8 Points)
Konami 3-3 (6 Points) – Eliminated
Kimber Lee 2-4 (4 Points) – Eliminated
Tam Nakano 1-5 (2 Points) – Eliminated
Natsuko Tora 1-5 (2 Points) – Eliminated

 

Thoughts:

You know Stardom, you know what happens when you make Tam look good but don’t give her wins? Nothing happens, it’s actually decent story telling and could set up for a big upset of Kagetsu on the Finals day. So as much as the fan in me hates watching Tam come up short (Naito fans around the world know that feel), her determination and the storyline wrinkles could pay off later.

As for the two days…meh? Nothing stood out and these really just felt like matches to set up for the final swerve. These kind of days happen in all tournaments, it just hit really hard in these four matches. I just really really hope Rachael doesn’t win Red Stars.

Mathew’s Stardom 5 Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Results & Review: Day 8

Published

on

So tomorrow is the last day of the Five Star Grand Prix where we will have our final four matches and the final match on the same day but we got two matches left to cover before we go to the final day.

This show is for people that didn’t have their six matches before the final day and we’re using this to make sure they’re all caught up to speed and we can see who has a chance to make it and who doesn’t. I know it says day 8 in my headline but I had no matches on the seventh day, so I decided to just skip it and go where I have my actual matches. So who wins these two matches?

Let’s find out and…dive right in.

 

Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Kelly Klein vs. Natsu Sumire

Review: It’s pretty clear that Sumire is pretty much eliminated and even if she does win this match and her last one, the fact that Mayu would hold the tiebreaker over her if she lost today and won tomorrow, but would still be out if Momo won on the final day since she’d have nine points while Sumire would still have eight if she won both and wouldn’t matter, but she has been one of the highlights of this tournament due to her personality flourishing a lot more here and the fans loving her more and more. Sumire in her pre-match interview seems to be more focused on her bust size and even talked about the supplements she’s been taking for a couple weeks now and is disappointed that there’s been no change in her results just yet and hopes to provide progress updates. Kelly is her opponent tonight and if Kelly does win here, she’ll be in the top spot of the standings and would have a strong chance of winning. Can Kelly win again or will Sumire ruin it for her?

Once again, Sumire made the match fun when it was needed due to it not being the best bout in the tournament here but they did work with what they got, even if it was as pretty standard as they come. Kelly did an okay job in the match as well and probably my least favorite outing of her in the Grand Prix and she just wanted to dominate Sumire. Sumire was mostly doing her antics that you would see in her matches with the false handshakes, cradling them up when they least expect it, and just whipping them. It looked like Kelly was going to go for the win here and when she ran the ropes, Kagetsu kicked her in the back to stun her long enough for Sumire to grab the Oedo Tai sign so she could hit Kelly with it, but Kelly moved out of the way causing the sign to bounce off the ropes and hit Sumire instead in which it gets turned around for Kelly to hit the Fireman’s Carry Slam for the victory and she’s now in first place.

Rating: Tony Schiavone

 

Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Hazuki vs. Mayu Iwatani

Review: A win here is very crucial for Mayu Iwatani if she wants to tie it up with Kelly, otherwise she would be eliminated from the tournament and her opponent, Hazuki would take the top spot with nine points and potentially win the whole thing if things work out in her favor. The last time the both of them fought one on one was around February during the ROH Women of Honor tournament and Mayu would come out the winner of that match and Mayu wants to beat her again to show she’s on a whole different level now. Who will take the top spot of the standings, Mayu or Hazuki?

Hazuki is in my top 5 wrestlers of Stardom right now and this match here with Mayu just solidified my statement for this claim. This whole tournament, she has been one of the most consistent wrestlers in her matches with her sequences being on point, her moves are crisp, and how to handle a match lately has been outstanding that she should be under peoples radar. Hazuki right away was being aggressive with Mayu before the bell even rang when she attacked her from behind and kept rolling her up which failed, but she kept on the attack by throwing her around into chairs on the outside and even destroyed Mayu’s arm during the whole match and not holding back on her, I love this side of Hazuki.

This match is one of my favorites in my block next to Hazuki/Momo still being my favorite one, but this one was still pretty damn close with their chemistry in the ring together gave us a special match and it’s not even their last one for their block. They told a great story in the ring, executed everything almost flawlessly, seeing a more aggressive side of Hazuki in her previous two matches, and Mayu selling it all to make it look more dangerous than it probably is, but they were just on point with everything together. Hazuki was pulling out all the stops with having her in the Crossface, working on her arm, stiff Dropkicks and a Codebreaker, but it still wasn’t enough to take Mayu out as she hits the Dragon Suplex Hold and gets the victory to tie first place with Kelly Klein. After the match, she told the crowd that she was now in first place and hopes the crowd will still support her as she looks to win it all at the final.

Rating: Bruce Prichard

 

Overall: Can’t really give it a fair assessment due to only having two matches with one being average and the other one being great, but the average of it was solid enough. I’m glad to see that all three of my picks are in the top 4 of potential winners and excited for the last day since it’s stacked.

Favorite Match: Hazuki vs. Mayu Iwatani

Score: 6/10

Blue Stars Standings:
Mayu Iwatani: 4-2 (8 Points)
Kelly Klein: 4-2 (8 Points)
Momo Watanabe: 3-2-1 (7 Points)
Hazuki: 3-2-1 (7 Points)
Nicole Savoy: 3-3 (6 Points)
Jamie Hayter: 2-4 (4 Points)
Saki Kashima: 2-4 (2 Points)
Natsu Sumire: 2-4 (4 Points)

Now that we have our final standings before the final show tomorrow, we see that our top 4 people that could still win this are Mayu Iwatani, Kelly Klein, Momo Watanabe, and Hazuki. We’re gonna break down the final card for tomorrow and see who has a real chance and how can it be done.

  • Mayu Iwatani vs. Momo Watanabe
  • Hazuki vs. Natsu Sumire
  • Kelly Klein vs. Nicole Savoy
  • Saki Kashima vs. Jamie Hayter

Here is how these four can win.

Mayu Iwatani: Defeat Momo Watanabe and Nicole Savoy defeats Kelly Klein.

Momo Watanabe: Defeat Mayu Iwatani and Nicole Savoy defeats Kelly Klein.

Kelly Klein: Defeat Nicole Savoy

Hazuki: Defeat Nicole Savoy, Momo Watanabe defeats Mayu Iwatani, and Nicole Savoy defeats Kelly Klein

If Momo and Hazuki do win their matches and Kelly loses, these two will be in a tie and it’ll be interesting to see who gets the final spot since they did tie it up in their outing, interesting direction if that’s the case.

CMLL Arena Puebla Show Monday

El Asturiano and Black Tiger vs Espiritu Maligno and Fuerza Chicana

Maligno and Asturiano start out the match exchanging arm drags. Maligno is bare foot so Asturiano while having him in a hold bites his feet. Not very hygienical. Tiger and Chicana make their way in trading holds. Tags are made briefly and they pick up the pace but Chicana and Tiger come back in soon after to continue the faster pace. Maligno misses a splash and Tiger gets him in a surfboard stretch for the submission, then Asturiano pins Chicana with a hurricanrana pin combo. First Fall: El Asturiano pins Fuerza Chicana with a hurricanrana.

Black Tiger hits a monkey flip on Maligno to start the round and then hits a pose. Asturiano and Chicana are in to follow. He ends up feigning a dive to the outside. Maligno and Chicana start to get heat on the other team by double teaming both guys when they get the chance. Malingo hits a baseball slide to Asturiano in the corner and then they get both of them in submissions. Some elaborate stretches. Second Fall: Espiritu Maligno submits El Asturiano with a submission hold.

Third round starts with Asturiano being double teamed. Maligno hits a drop kick on him sending him out bringing in Black Tiger to get doubled. All four are in the ring now exchanging chops. Maligno gets Asturiano in a Gory Guerrero special into a pinning combination for the pin. The Chicana gets Black Tiger in a single leg boston crab for the win. Third Fall: Fuerza Chicana submits Black Tiger with a single leg boston crab.

Winners: Espiritu Maligno and Fuerza Chicana

Oro Jr, Super Astro Jr, and Tigre Rojo Jr vs King Rocker Jr, El Malayo, and King Jaguar

King Jaguar and Oro Jr start off with some chain wrestling, exchanging holds. They meet a stale mate and King Rocker come in and continue to exchange holds and chain wrestle. Tigre Rojo and Malayo come in and pick up the pace. Malayo gets Rojo in the corner to get an advantage on him, but it doesn’t work out. Oro Jr and Rojo hit a combo neck breaker on Malayo. Super Astro hits him with a dive for a pin. Tigre Rojo gets King Jaguar in an arm bar for the first fall. First Fall: Tigre Rojo Jr submits King Jaguar with an arm bar.

King Rocker starts the second fall with Oro jr and Oro gets him to the outside and then hits a pose. Astro comes in there next with Malayo. Astro gets him to the outside and then feigns a dive and hits an elaborate pose. After that Rojo and Jaguar come in and he too gets Jaguar to the outside and feigns a dive. Finally Rocker and Malayo are working over Tigre Rojo. Once they dispose of him they start to triple team Astro Jr. Jaguar hits a big baseball slide dive on Astro. Oro Jr gets hit with a basement drop kick to the hit by King Rocker for the second fall. Second Fall: King Rocker pins Oro Jr with a basement drop kick.

Oro and Rocker start out in the third round. This becomes a triple team attack soon. It doesn’t last for long and Oro Jr, Astro, and Rojo go for dives but they get dodged and then it becomes a brawl. They exchange spots and go for pins that get broken up. Astro hits a top rope headbutt on Malayo and pins him. Oro hits a power slam on Rocker and then Tigre and him do a double team move where Rojo flips Oro onto Rocker for the pin. Third Fall: Oro pins Rocker while being flipped by Tigre Rojo.

Winners: Oro Jr, Super Astro Jr, and Tigre Rojo Jr

Guerrero Maya, Fuego, and Stigma vs El Sagrado, Misterioso, and Tiger

Interesting note, the Arena Puebla is called Temple of Pain in translation. They should do Lucha Underground out of here. Maya and Misterioso start out in the match, and as they exchange holds and perform some mat wrestling, I’d like to point out how hype Fuego’s entrance is. After they go to a stale mate Sagrado and Stigma come in. They don’t last long and Fuego and Tiger get in there and pick up the pace.

Tiger irish whips Fuego into his corner and this causes his teammates to come in and triple team Fuego for a moment. Fuego’s teammates come in to confront. Fuego makes a come back and gets Tiger to the outside and then a brawl breaks out on the outside. After that Maya starts to get triple teamed. Misterioso hits a weak drop kick bringing Maya to the outside then hits a pose, but Fuego rolls him up. First Fall: Fuego rolls up Misterioso.

The second round is started with Stigma getting triple teamed. After they dispose of Stigma to the outside, Maya comes in to try his hand but the numbers are too much. El Sagrado hits an elbow drop for the second fall. Second Fall: El Sagrado hits an elbow drop on Guerrero Maya for the pin.

Maya starts the fall getting triple teamed but made a come back by hitting everyone with a tilt-a-Whirl back breaker. After that Stigma and Fuego came and hit middle rope dives. They all start to exchange spots now, one at a time. Fuego hits his matrix bridge spot and then hits a dive. Stigma hits a big hurricanrana on Misterioso. Tiger and Stigma start to exchange chops.

Eventually Tiger hits a big power bomb. Fuego hits a big victory roll on Misterioso and the ref takes forever to go for the count and Sagrado breaks it up. Misterioso hits a reverse power slam and Fuego breaks up the pin and then he hits a big dive. Stigma hits a pinning combination on on Sagrado and Maya hits a spring board, shoulder block on Tiger for the win. Third Fall: Guerrero Maya hits a shoulder block on Tiger for the win.

Winners: Guerrero Maya, Fuego, and Stigma
