History? Family? Loyalty? Dedication? Sacrifice? Love? No, it is fear. “We do not fear mankind, only failure.” He will not see failure, but you will #FeastYourEyes, next!
NXT Media catches up with Matt Riddle.
The King of Bros was attacked by Kassius Ohno, what is his reaction? Riddle isn’t happy about being punked out but he can’t blame Ohno. Riddle got him super quick so Ohno needs all the advantages he can get. But Riddle dares Ohno to face him in a rematch, and get knocked out in another seven seconds. Will Ohno accept facing Riddle man to man?
Dominik Dijakovic VS Aaron Mackey!
Don’t be fooled, the towering titan heading to the ring isn’t a new star, but Dijakovic is getting a second chance. Will the entire NXT Universe soon #FeastOurEyes on his dominance?
Mackey wants as much space between him and Dijakovic before the bell. The bell rings and Dijakovic gives Mackey a stiff body shot. And then forearms and chops and a clubbing clothesline!

Steaks and Weights!
Heavy Machinery are revving up and are COMIIIN’ for the NXT Tag Team Championships! Will they gain some last minute momentum before going against the Undisputed Era?

If the Undisputed Era weren’t worried before, maybe they should be now, because Tucker & Otis are COMIIIN’! Will Heavy Machinery get to ring in the New Year with titles?

Winner: Johnny Gargano, by pinfall
Johnny Gargano wins, thanks to Tommaso Ciampa?! Who would’ve thought we’d see the day when these two work together again after what they’d done to each other. But in the end, it has turned out this way. Will Aleister be able to recover and get revenge on the Psycho Killer in Phoenix? Or is this a sign of darker days in NXT?
What a great episode right here, with very little down time from in-ring action. The opening Women’s Tag was good but also quick. I suppose that even with the time they’ve spent, Jessamyn and Marina still need time to match up to talents like Shirai & Kai. It was still a good first showing, and maybe come that Six Woman Tag I’m still hoping for, they’ll be able to go for a longer, wilder match. And I foolishly didn’t think Shirai would be in the #1 Contender’s Fatal 4, she has to be the odds on favorite to winning that to carry on where Kairi Sane left off. Plus with Lacey Evans going up to main, she’s the odds on favorite to not win.
The only thing I didn’t like about Donovan Dijak’s return is how they’re pronouncing his new last name. Die-ja-kovic just doesn’t work when his name is literally adding “ovic” to Dijak. But names aside, he did well enough in squashing a jobber. I hope this new Dijakovic gets to have a feud with Keith Lee so that both men get to show everything they’ve got. Riddle VS Ohno is also coming, that’ll be great. Heavy Machinery got to show some new ruthlessness as they made examples out of jobbers. Though, I sadly doubt they’ll be going to main roster as the NXT Tag Team Champions, meaning the Undisputed Era will find any number of ways to screw them over in the match next week. Maybe Tucker & Otis will have better going with titles once they reach main roster.
Aleister VS Gargano was a great steel cage match, which is saying something since steel cage matches are harder to make unique. The opening brawl was a good choice, given the story between these two. And it wasn’t just kayfabe to say that the momentary DIY reunion was shocking. Gargano has been feeling further and further Heel, and this almost solidifies it. I still wonder if this brings us back around to the NXT Championship Triple Threat we didn’t get for TakeOver: Brooklyn. That would be great because it’d pit DIY against each other so soon after they worked together, and then that helps Aleister take the title back.
My Score: 8.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY
Ladies and Gentlemen, Elias.
The Drifter opens Raw in LA, and says he was talking to Anthony Davis. “Why? Why would you want to move to Los Angeles?” Davis said it’s because he’s garbage, and should be with other pieces of garbage. So he moved to a city where the people are more toxic than the air. Elias would rather be anywhere else, but he was invited here by Baron Corbin. And Elias is wearing referee stripes, because HE is the special guest referee for Stomping Grounds! Corbin’s trust- doesn’t matter because Seth Rollins SMACKS Elias from behind! And again! And again! Over and over and over, Rollins unleashes his fury on Corbin’s pick for special guest ref! Rollins then demands a mic so he can speak.
“After every thing I’ve been through with Brock Lesnar, I am done playing games!” Corbin still needs a special guest referee, but Rollins has a message for those who want that position. It is the first and last warning. It doesn’t matter what Corbin promises, but the chair is what awaits them. “So choose wisely!” The Architect opens Raw with a Universal title ultimatum! Will Corbin get anyone to line up for the job now that Rollins is ready to burn them down?
The Miz is here!
The Hollywood A-Lister has his shot at a Stomping Grounds match, but he wants to “check” on Elias real quick. Skull-Crushing Finale for the Drifter! Bobby Lashley comes out next, to SPEAR Elias! The Rocky Mountain Machine isn’t going to be shown up by Miz, it seems. Then Cesaro appears to take Elias for a swing! He goes around and around and around, for just under 10! After Cesaro is the One and Only, Ricochet! Elias sits up, only to get Ricochet’s Code Breaker! But then BRAUN appears! And yes, he finishes Elias off with a MONSTER SLAM! And with that, their massive match is up next!
WWE United States Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 5 Way ELIMINATION Match: The Miz VS Braun Strowman VS Ricochet VS Bobby Lashley VS Cesaro!
After Miz TV became an open forum on last week’s Raw, it is clear Samoa Joe has a long and star-studded list to contend with. They all got to show what they can do to Elias, but what will they do to each other in order to meet the Samoan Submission Machine at Stomping Grounds?
Raw returns with the bell, and Strowman SHOTGUN dropkicks Lashley and Cesaro! Miz and Ricochet go after Strowman but get shoved away. Strowman grabs Cesaro and Lashley to shove them out!

But Strowman back drops out of it! Cesaro lands on his feet to springboard, but gets caught! MONSTER SLAM! But Strowman can’t cover, and Lashley runs in, only to get a MONSTER SLAM onto Cesaro! Cover, Strowman ELIMINATES Cesaro!
Samoa Joe watches from ringside and is impressed, slightly. Ricochet springboards in and Strowman catches him! To ram him into a corner! Then throw him across the way! Miz returns but gets a BOOT! Lashley slips back in, and catches Strowman to a complete shot. Now Lashley tries his strength in snap suplexing Strowman! Lashley hits Miz out of the ring then does the same to Ricochet. But Strowman is up and ready, scoops and SLAMS Lashley! Cover, Strowman ELIMINATES Lashley!! That’s two men who #GotTheseHands! But then Strowman sees the other two on the outside, and he runs Miz over! Strowman keeps going and BLASTS Ricochet off his feet! He keeps going, to blast Miz again! The Monster roars, then puts Miz in the ring.
Miz makes it to a corner, and Strowman runs in for a monster splash. Strowman keeps going, for a second! He scoops Miz but Lashley returns to SPEAR Strowman! There are no disqualifications, so he AND Cesaro return! Cesaro lifts Strowman for a Neutralizer!! Ricochet doesn’t complain as he gives Strowman the 630 senton! Cover, and it’s a TRIPLE cover! They ELIMINATE Strowman!! The Swiss Cyborg and the All Mighty get even with the Monster Among Men, and Joe just laughs. Strowman glares as he grabs Ricochet to THROW at Lashley! Strowman then drags Lashley up to throw him into barriers! The Monster turns his attention to Cesaro and BLASTS him on stage! Cesaro hits LED walls! But Miz and Ricochet are still in this match. Who makes it back up while we go to break?

Just as the match was gonna start AAA has technical difficulties. Never change AAA. We finally come back to Keyra having Shani in a pinning combo. They apologize for the technical difficulties.

Definitely got better heat this time than last time they were here. Now the crowd knows to boo them later.

Time to follow up that segment with this match. Tirantes beats up on Faby to start. Tormenta is at ring side with Tirantes so it’s basically a handicap match. Tirantes smashes Faby with a cookie sheet. Faby dodges the attacks finally and gets the cookie sheet and hits Tirantes and Tormenta. They keep starting up someone’s theme by accident I presume.
