SummerSlam is upon us to round out the busy weekend! Do we get any good matches aside from Styles vs Ricochet?

This has not been a great build for one of the biggest WWE shows of the year.

Flair and Stratus feels like they’re just feeding Charlotte another name to build her resume. Bray and Balor is a squash match without The Demon.

I’m already talking myself into disinterest with this show.

Let’s get started before I hate watch this stupid thing.

Ratings:

  • WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Oney Lorcan vs Drew Gulak(c): Gulak retains via Cyclone Crash @8:45 – ***
  • Apollo Crews vs Buddy Murphy:  Murphy wins via DQ @4:20 – **
  • WWE Raw Women’s Tag Team Titles: Bliss Cross(c) vs The IIconics: Bliss retains via Twisted Bliss @6:15 – * ½

  • WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Seth Rollins: Rollins wins via Stomp @13:25 – *** ¼ – TITLE CHANGE!!

 

Analysis:

WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Oney Lorcan vs Drew Gulak(c) – Lorcan couldn’t really be taken seriously, I mean really. Most of us remember him as the jobber for NXT for a while, and then a few tag team showings and we’re supposed to care? No thanks and this match didn’t set the world on fire. It was alright, Lorcan got a fairly convincing false finish, but this felt like it was stuck in first gear.

Apollo Crews vs Buddy Murphy – The match was alright and felt like it was about to pick up, before a wild Rowan appeared. So Rowan wiped out Murphy for saying he was the one to try and kill Roman. A bit of a beat down on Murphy, so the story continues.

WWE Raw Women’s Tag Team Titles: Bliss Cross(c) vs The IIconics – Okay this happened. I don’t know why The IIconics got a rematch when WWE apparently stopped doing that. But things that are said obviously don’t matter. The match was on par for what was expected. These two teams aren’t known for technical prowess and commentary going on about Toy Story references instead of the match ruined any credibility this could’ve had. Glad it’s over.

WWE Raw Women’s Championship Submission Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs Natalya – I want to say they both tried hard, but the match really didn’t seem like it at times. Aside from pretty good selling on both accounts, there were awkward moments, stupid spots and both trying to do the other one’s submission was just bad. Becky’s Sasori-Gatame is terrible, Natalya doesn’t make me care. Every time Natalya is on, I eagerly await the match being over.

Dolph Ziggler vs Goldberg – Ziggler tried to hit a few Superkicks early, but Goldberg powered out at one. Then he hits a Spear and Jackhammer and its match over. The best part to this is that Ziggler’s delusional ass jumps on the mic and says Goldberg got lucky and he’s not a real man. So Goldberg comes back, hits a Spear and walks to the back. Ziggler grabs a mic again, and says he’s still the best and will never be defeated and Goldberg just got lucky twice. Goldberg’s music hits, the crowd erupts in a mixture of cheers and laughter and Goldberg runs the ropes for a momentum driven Spear. So this was fun in a different way than workrate.

D’Wayne Gretzky is the best Canadian announcer in the history of Canadian announcers.

WWE United States Championship: Ricochet vs AJ Styles (c) – Styles worked over Ricochet’s knee and Ricochet sold the injury well. We saw a slower paced match than many probably expected from the two, but it was still a damn good match. Anderson and Gallows didn’t really interfere until the last minute or so, and they played an important role in distracting Ricochet, but it didn’t really detract. Ricochet went for a Phoenix Splash that AJ Styles caught Ricochet and hits the Styles Clash for the pinfall. Damn solid match.

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship:  Bayley (c) vs Ember Moon – We get a really solid wrestling match between these two. Bayley slowed Ember down a bit and kept things grounded, but when Ember was able to ramp up the intensity, she had a few believable moments. She even has a cool Stormbreaker/Codebreaker move she pulled off during the match. This was nice, even if the Frankensteiner countered as a Power Bomb and finishing sequence looked a little off, it was still mostly well done. Good match.

If Shane Wins Kevin Quits WWE: Kevin Owens vs Shane McMahon – Now this wasn’t a mat classic or anything like that, but damned if it wasn’t entertaining. Shane tried to stack the deck with Elias as the Special Enforcer or whatever, so there was always something going on to try and distract Owens or cost him the match. After double stripey shirt bumps, Owens takes out Elias and looks to use the chair on Shane, but the referee recovers to stop that. Owens hands the chair to the ref, and while the referee is dealing with that, Owens kicks Shane betwixt the legs and hits the Stunner. Game over boys! The Canadians have something to be happy about.

Charlotte Flair vs Trish Stratus – This match got a good bit of time, and that helped it be salvageable I suppose is a good word. Trish was never someone I considered a generational wrestler, she was just one of the best of an awful era. We start off with some of the worst looking arm drags in the world and a dumb spill out spot. It also showcased how awful Charlotte is at talking. She repeated the same insult over and over, it was never clever, it was just repetitive and stupid. Then this match dragged for a while, and people pop for signatures or Trish trying to use the Figure 8. Rough at moments, but I suppose it was supposed to be another feather in Charlotte’s already clutter cap of greatest of all time on top of the feel good moment of Trish having one more marquee match. It ended up being fine, but with the way it’s being framed from the WWE, this is nothing to go down in history.

WWE Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs Randy Orton – Aside from the startling size contrast between Kofi and Randy, this match was solid. Kofi countered at a few moments to give him some momentum, fought off the Superplex for a nice Leaping DDT, and it was just generally solid. However, the match got slow and when Randy caught Kofi with the RKO and just laughed, the writing was on the wall of something odd. And that’s what we got, Kofi rolled out in front of his family, and Randy took great joy in slowly pulling Kofi up and getting ready for more torment. But apparently the referee started counting immediately cause he gets to 10, before Kofi even freaks out to Randy messing with his family and we get a no decision title match. Randy has a great history with these. Ugh…awful finish to a match that could’ve made Kofi’s reign. Yes, this extends the story, but I find myself caring less now. This match was built on a decade of spite and now it gets diluted to whatever the hell this is.

Bray Wyatt vs Finn Balor – So we get an elongated squash match. Bray makes a great entrance, with a remixed theme and the lantern is inside of what appears to be Bray’s head. Finn was entranced and mostly beat on, got a small spurt of offense but became The Fiend’s first victim. Crowd chanted “That was Awesome”, afterwards and it really was. Great debut, great vignettes with the Firefly Fun House and great way to pass the Mandible Claw from Foley to Bray in the previous weeks. Damn good professional wrestling.

WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Seth Rollins – Rollins is infuriating to watch when he has injuries. His selling is always an afterthought if he does it at all. The injured ribs didn’t stop him from doing anything, merely made him wince on occasion. If anyone ever complained about Cena or Reigns being booked as Superman, I hope you realize this is the same thing. As a match, there was that whole story of desperation from the challenger, but again, his lack of understanding how to sell takes away any emotional connection to his struggle. In the current landscape of wrestling without psychology, this was fine and people may think I underrated it. But this was slightly above average, and that’s being nice.

Overall Score: 5.5/10

This was not a show for people who only watch for in-ring wrestling. The Pre-Show was effectively worthless aside from the Buddy Murphy thing. The show didn’t pick up until Goldberg, because Ziggler’s making excuses was hilarious. But around the point of the Flair/Stratus match, the show dipped again. The finish to the WWE Championship is awful, but at least Bray’s whole Fiend entrance was awesome.

Again, if you just watch for wrestling, this show sucked. As for pushing storylines and general okay/feel good moments, this was alright. Honestly nothing special, but not the worst thing ever.

The social media sensation became a WWE superstar with help from the Hollywood A-Lister, only to be betrayed on the biggest stage of them all!

Ciampa gets out of his seat to look for Styles, but where is he? PHENOMENAL FOREARM from the crowd side!

Styles fires off on Ciampa and takes him around to TOSS over barriers! Ciampa and Styles brawl in the crowd! Miz gets up, Logan hits a PHENOMENAL FOREARM of his own! Cover, TWO!! Miz survives and Logan is furious, but Logan pursues Miz out of the ring. Logan tells Miz to get his ass up, then drags him around. Logan gets an idea, and decides to clear off the announce desk! The ring count is climbing, but Logan drags Miz up to put him on the table. Logan gets in the ring, goes to a corner and climbs, but Maryse shouts at Logan! Logan just throws the corner crossbar cover at her! Logan hits a SUPER FROG SPLASH TO THE DESK!!!

Fans are losing their minds as Logan invokes the spirit of Shane O’Mac with that one! But did he do as much damage to himself as he did Miz and the desk?

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: The Usos VS The Street Profits, Special Guest Referee Jeff Jarrett!

Money in the Bank didn’t become known for a tag title match but for the shoulder being up at the end of it! And because of that, there has been a need for a slightly higher standard of shot calling. In steps J E Double F, J A Double R E Double T, ain’t he great? But will having a legend like Jarrett really change the fortunes of the Profits? Or will Jimmy & Jey still be the ones holding the unified Raw & SmackDown Tag Team Championships?

So Rollins, get your ass out here! Fans fire up for Riddle, and here comes Seth Rollins! The Visionary has Adam Pearce and other officials trying to stop him, but Rollins wants to accept Riddle’s challenge! Rollins sprints past in his creamsicle outfit and Riddle meets him at the ramp! The brawl is on!! Riddle ROCKS Rollins, KICKS him towards the ring, and gets him in the ring! Riddle KICKS and KICKS and KICKS!

Rollins blocks then DECKS Riddle! Rollins aims, refs and officials freak out, but the CURB STOMP hits!! Riddle’s neck injury could be aggravated or worse!

SmackDown Women’s Championship: Liv Morgan VS Ronda Rousey!

After scratching and clawing, this young woman from New Jersey finally got to live the dream. She won the Ms. Money in the Bank contract, and then cashed in that same night to take this title from the Baddest Woman on the Planet. However, Ronda is right back for a rematch, and this time, she’s 100%! Will Ronda rip off Liv’s limbs to get the belt back? Or can Liv prove being an underdog isn’t a death sentence?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Liv can keep the dream alive!

Fans fire up and Ronda is getting even more frustrated. Ronda sees Liv go to another corner, the ref checks on Liv, but Liv doesn’t want this to stop the match! Liv swears her arm is okay, and then she dares Ronda to bring it! Ronda fires up and runs in, steps up and around to RANA Liv into the ARMBAR!!

Liv endures, stands up, gets Ronda  on her shoulders! Cover, while Liv taps, but LIV WINS!!!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall (still SmackDown Women’s Champion)

Ronda protests, she knows Liv was tapping! But what was the timing of it? The three or the tap? The replay shows the tapping started at two! But it doesn’t change anything, replays don’t matter in WWE! But Ronda DECKS Liv! Ronda puts Liv in the armbar! Then she throws the ref!! And puts him in the ARMBAR!! Ronda’s snapped but she might snap an arm first! Officials rush out but Ronda tells them to back off or get some of that! The ref didn’t do his job in Ronda’s opinion, but will Ronda have to fight her way back up? And as for Liv, she survived by a split second. Will she be able to stay that lucky against the rest of the SmackDown roster?

 

“Kane,” Glenn Jacobs is here!

He is glad to announce that tonight’s attendance in Nashville’s Nissan Stadium is 48,449! Thank you, WWE Universe! And of course, Kane makes the corner posts burst with flames!

 

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman VS Brock Lesnar!

After seven YEARS, this rivalry finally has its conclusion. The Tribal Chief thought he had put The Beast away at WrestleMania 38 when he became the reigning, defending, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. But Lesnar came back again, promising to give Roman the country ass kicking he deserves. Will Lesnar end this last chapter as the Last Man Standing? Or will everyone, even Lesnar, have to acknowledge Roman Reigns?

Roman of course has The Wise Man, Paul Heyman, and his cousins, The Usos, so that all three undisputed champions of WWE can stand together with the belts and the pyro. But only the Special Counsel goes with Roman to the ring, holding the blue belt as a banner for The Bloodline. Then Roman holds up the belts for the second round of pyro. Heyman hands over a mic, and Roman says, “Nashville… SummerSlam! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Nashville is torn but there are plenty of fans cheering. Then Lesnar makes his entrance and everyone fires up! And that’s also because Lesnar gets his flannel on and rides a big tractor to the ring!

Lesnar parks the tractor at ringside, with the front loader raised! Lesnar climbs the loader to get in the ring! Roman wants that tractor out of here, but it’s not exactly stopping them from doing anything, right? The introductions are finally made, with Lesnar introducing himself as “a big ass country boy, weighing 285 pounds, coming here tonight to kick Roman Reigns’ ass, and the Last Man Standing! Ladies and gentlemen, BRRROCK! LESNARR!” Surprisingly, Heyman doesn’t take over Roman’s intro. The black ‘n’ blue belts are raised, and then Lesnar LEAPS from the loader to CLOBBER Roman!! Lesnar rains down fists and the bell rings!

Roman pushes Lesnar away, but Lesnar clotheslines Roman out of the ring! Lesnar then pursues, and he OVERHEAD Belly2Belly Suplexes! And so it begins! Lesnar brings Roman around to RAM into steel steps, stalks him around the way, and he moves steps aside to drag Roman up, for another OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! That’s two and Roman is down! The count starts but Roman pushes himself up at 5 of 10. Lesnar stalks Roman again, and CLOBBERS him against barriers! Lesnar then hauls ROman up to SLAM on the barriers, and Roman flops into the crowd. Lesnar grins as the count starts and he pursues Roman through the crowd.

Lesnar brings Roman over to one of the canopy supports, to snap suplex Roman onto it! Roman is down, the count begins again, but he stirs at 5 of 10. Lesnar hops up to join Roman as he stands, and Lesnar fireman’s carries! Roman claws Lesnar’s face to get free, then he POSTS Lesnar with the truss! Roman checks his back, then storms up on Lesnar. Roman reels Lesnar in, but Lesnar RAMS Roman into the truss! Then Lesnar TOSSES Roman onto a cameraman! Roman is down and the count starts again. Roman flounders at 4 of 10 so Lesnar storms up on him. Lesnar DUMPS Roman over the barriers and back to ringside.

Lesnar stumbles getting over the barriers, but he GERMAN SUPLEXES Roman to the floor! That’s about four suplexes total, Music City is definitely Suplex City. Roman is down while Lesnar looks under the ring. Fans fire up as a TABLE is brought out! Roman stands at 6 of 10 but Lesnar stands the table up. Lesnar makes sure it is sturdy, and Heyman creeps up on him? Lesnar glares at Heyman and Heyman begs for mercy! Lesnar leaves Heyman alone, he has to get Roman first. Roman fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP Lesnar through the table! The Wise Man tricks Lesnar again! Roman gets up while Lesnar stirs.

The count is 8 of 10 but Lesnar stands up. Roman grabs the top half of the steel steps, and he RAMS Lesnar down, onto the wreckage of the table! Lesnar is down again, Roman brings out a new table! Roman stands that table up while Lesnar manages to stand at about 5 of 10. Roman drags Lesnar over, t URENAGE through the table! The count starts again but Lesnar sits up at 5. Lesnar stands at 7, but Roman is right there to put Lesnar in the ring. Roman locks ‘n’ loads, takes aim from the corner, SUPERMAN PUNCH! Lesnar staggers but only drops to a knee! Roman reloads, runs back in, SUPERMAN PUNCH!

Lesnar drops but is right back up! Roman fires up, “OOAH~!” SPEAR!! But Roman can’t cover, he has to let the count start! The count reaches 5 while Lesnar is down, but Lesnar does sit up at 7! Lesnar powers his way up at 8, and Roman can’t believe it! Roman “OOAH~” and runs in, but into a fireman’s carry! But Roman slips off, shoves, and runs in, only for Lesnar to toss Roman out! Roman almost hits table wreckage on the way down! The count is on both men but Roman rolls out at 5 to stand. Roman is still down at 7 but stands at 8. Lesnar storms over after Roman, brings him around, and SPINEBUSTERS Roman on what’s left of a table!!

Another standing count as Lesnar staggers away, and Roman is still down at 5. Lesnar moves the tractor?! The loader is lowered, Roman manages to stand at 8 of 10. Lesnar comes back for Roman and RAMS him with steel steps! Payback from a moment ago and Roman staggers around the way. Lesnar grabs whatever is left of another table, to SMACK Roman with it! Roman goes down! The count climbs and Lesnar smiles. Fans fire up as the count is 7, but Roman sits up! Roman pushes up off the steel at 9! Lesnar sighs, but he drags Roman around the way and to the tractor. Lesnar puts Roman in the loader! And then gets the tractor to raise it!!

Roman is high above the ground, and Lesnar lifts him over the ring! Lesnar DUMPS Roman out of the loader!! Roman crashes down on the mat from about eight feet up! The count starts, but Roman sits up at 5. Roman stands at 7, so Lesnar hurries back into the ring. “This is Awesome!” as Lesnar GERMAN SUPLEXES Roman! Roman flounders, Roman GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Roman flounders again but Lesnar is right on him! GERMAN SUPLEX! Lesnar is starting to tire himself out with these, but Roman is the one down on the mat! The count is 5 of 10, then 8! Roman manages to stand at 9!

Lesnar is right after Roman with a fireman’s carry! F5!! But again, it is up to the ten count! Lesnar waits in a corner as he watches Roman down at 5. Roman’s down at 8, but he slowly sits up. Roman flounders up at 9.9!! Lesnar is beside himself, but Roman is leaning against ropes. Fireman’s carry, F- GUILLOTINE!! Roman has Lesnar caught!! No ropebreaks to stop this, but wait! Lesnar powers out to GUILLOTINE Roman right back!! Now Roman is the one having to worry about no ropebreaks! Heyman is worrying for Roman, too! The ref is checking Roman, he is out, but Lesnar has to let the count start!

Lesnar lets Roman go, the count begins, and Lesnar watches like a hawk. The count is 5, then 7, then 9! Roman stands at 9.99999!!! Lesnar thinks that was it, but somehow Roman is conscious! Lesnar goes right back to the tractor, backs it up, lowers the loader, and MOVES THE RING?!?! And TIPS IT?!?! Roman tumbles right out!!! This is the first time anyone anywhere can say they’ve seen anything like this!! The count starts, fans are losing their minds, and Roman drags himself up the barriers to stand at 8! But Lesnar is right there, and he clears off the annoucne desk! But THE USOS attack!!

Lesnar OVERHEAD Belly2Belly Suplexes Jimmy, then does the same to Jey! The Usos have rough landings, but Heyman tells Lesnar to stop! Twenty YEARS, Heyman has had it with this!

Everyone is down but the referee, and he counts! The count is 5! Then 7! Then 8! But both monsters stand at 9!! Roman flops right back down, Lesnar flounders, and HERE COMES THEORY!!!

Lesnar is standing, Jimmy & Jey DOUBLE SUPERKICK!! The count starts again, Roman is standing against the tipped over ring! Lesnar flounders but we’re at 5 of 10! Roman counts along, we’re at 7!

He SMACKS Theory for what he tried to pull, then he BASHES Lesnar with the briefcase again and again!

Roman is just windmilling the case! “COUNT HIS ASS NOW!” Lesnar is down as the ref counts again. We reach 5, and then 7. Lesnar is conscious, but he’s still down! Lesnar staggers up at 9 again?!?! Is he truly a beast?! BELT SHOT from Roman!! Cole wishes the ref would count faster! Lesnar is still down at 6 of 10, but he sputters alive at 7! Roman is beside himself as Lesnar gets up again!!! What does Roman have to do!?! Roman has the other belt, he shouts, “You ain’t ever coming back! YOU ain’t welcome here!” BELT SHOT!! And then the Usos help Roman bury Lesnar alive under wreckage! Roman STANDS on the pile, Lesnar can’t get up! ROMAN WINS!

Winner: Roman Reigns (still Undisputed WWE Universal Champion)

Of course this is how it ends! Roman used Heyman, the Usos, everything at ringside, and even Theory distracting Lesnar with his cash-in attempt to finish off the Alpha Male of Our Species! Will the Tribal Chief ever lose these titles with such a stacked deck? Will Lesnar ever return to the WWE after this?


My Thoughts:

What a wild night! Firstly, I was surprised the Raw Women’s Championship opened the night, but we got an awesome match out of Bianca VS Becky. A great story told over the last 11 months, and this was a great culmination. Bianca wins but Becky doesn’t go further Heel by attacking her like a sore loser. If anything, Becky turned face, especially with the shocking return of Bayley, and FINALLY the call-ups of Dakota Kai and Io Shirai. I have a feeling we’re getting a name change since Corey Graves was calling her “Io/Iyo Sky.” It’s whatever, I just wish they didn’t have to. But this is going to be great for Raw, with Bayley, Io and Kai as a trio. Bayley’s the singles champion contender, Kai & “Sky” can be tag title contenders.

Logan VS Miz was really good stuff, but I feel like Logan was almost going too hard at parts. And it was great for AJ Styles to get involved after his own beef with Miz. Logan wins, but I feel like things are only going to escalate from here. Maybe a tag match? Either way, Styles VS Ciampa 1v1 is going to be awesome, especially with HHH in charge to give those guys time to wrestle on the level they can wrestle. Then I actually really like that Lashley VS Theory was short and kinda one-sided. Lashley was not about to let Theory just take the belt back after only a month and let that inflate his ego. Now Lashley can take on any number of contenders through the rest of the year.

We got a rather Zoolander-esque product plug from Maximum Male Models, so that was something. Really good No Disqualification Tag from Mysterios and Judgement Day, but I had a feeling that Edge would make his return here. His only somewhat cryptic vignettes were all leading to this somehow or another, and of course he wants revenge on the faction that beat him down. Edge reuniting with Rey is cool, but is this going to turn into Dom being pushed to the background? Is there going to be a third male member of the Judgement Day under Finn? Or will both those things happen when this compels Dom to see things the Judgement Day’s way?

We got great stuff out of McAfee VS Corbin, especially with Corey and Cole each taking a side on commentary. McAfee did some great stuff in the match, with the ranas and the big swanton off the top. Also a great shout out to Adam Cole hitting a variation on the Panama Sunrise. Not sure if this really ends it since McAfee and Corbin are both on SmackDown, but maybe someone gives Corbin a hard time for losing to McAfee and that becomes Corbin’s new feud. We also got an awesome tag match, with Jarrett doing very well as special guest ref. There wasn’t a lot of controversy, other than each team being a bit selfish that he should’ve given them a better count. In the end, the Usos won, which is a shame for Profits, but maybe there’s a split in the works after all.

If it wasn’t clear before, Riddle being hurt and his match with Rollins being cancelled was all kayfabe. Riddle showed up here tonight, he had a brawl with Rollins, and Rollins got the better of him. Still seems a bit odd they pulled this angle at all but whatever, adds more heat for when they finally do have the match, and it probably saved this PPV’s run time about 20 minutes. Not having a substitute in Riddle’s place is okay, actually, it would’ve just felt like the “mystery opponent” angle at WrestleMania.

A great match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, and I really like how they played it. Ronda of course dominated, we all expected something like that. But Liv tapping out right before the three count was a great way to put controversy in this. Ronda fans still cheered her snapping and beating up Liv and the ref, so who knows where Ronda goes from here. Liv is free to take on anyone now, though I can’t really be sure who. Maybe Charlotte Flair returns soon? There’s great story there from way back when Charlotte told Liv Morgan to figure herself out. Liv has figured herself out, and now she can show Charlotte who she is!

And of course, an awesome main event! Lesnar bringing a tractor was wild already, but then he jumps off the loader, then uses the tractor to TIP THE WHOLE RING! I meant it when I said no one’s seen anything like that anywhere ever, that is one for the ages. Also, I don’t think anyone anywhere else could get away with tipping a ring over with a tractor other than Lesnar in WWE. I suppose this was WWE going all out for Lesnar since this was his last time facing Roman for the title(s).

I did like that Theory tried but didn’t even get a chance to cash-in. How would that have even worked with the ring tipped over like that? And a Triple Threat Last Man Standing doesn’t even make sense anyway. Still really lame that Roman had to use all of his resources to win, but it was really the only way to stop Lesnar after he became Godzilla in that match. Now McIntyre can dethrone Roman, and then maybe Theory tries to cash-in again to get back at McIntyre for all the Claymores. Clash at the Castle is going to be awesome stuff.

My Score: 9/10

PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Money in the Bank Kickoff Show!

Join Kayla Braxton, Kevin Patrick, Booker T, John “Bradshaw” Layfield & Peter Rosenberg as they discuss, analyze and predict all the action tonight!

 

The Street Profits crash the panel!

They want to know what’s going on, and Montez Ford gets on the desk. Angelo Dawkins would but he’s scared the glass will break. Ford asks if we at home can hear the fans in Vegas. He doesn’t need to say nothing else. He’s on a panel of Hall of Famers and beautiful people, and the bright lights are on as THEY WANT THE SMOKE! Ford hops off the table and Kayla formally welcomes them. Ford says hi to everyone, elbow bumps with K-Peezy, and Kayla says this is going to be the biggest match of their careers. Ford says damn right. His household could bring back all the gold! You can call them the NEW Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions! AND, they’re hitting the strip! They’re gonna party tonight~!

Kevin Patrick brings up how on SmackDown, the Usos said the Profits walk like them, talk like them and there was a shot of all four. They’re all physical specimens, but the Profits are bigger and stronger. However, where is the confidence level going against such an experienced and skilled tag team who has been at the summit as long as the Usos? Fans get photo ops but Booker says there’s no time for that. Booker wants to know what makes the Profits think they can win. So what Kevin asked? JBL says no, Kevin was kissing up! Booker says the Usos trained under, well, Booker T. They know what it takes to win and keep winning. Why do the Profits think they’re going to win?

Dawkins likes that question. He reminds Booker of when Dawkins got hired. It was an NXT house show. Dawkins asked how to make it, to get better. Booker said to “detox” from everything before coming to NXT. Dawkins did that on Raw, on Smackdown, and now they can be THE champions. The Usos ain’t ever seen Profits like these. They’ll dance in the street! Booker sees that difference. They look GOODT! JACKED! Get that paper! Kayla wishes them luck and thanks the Profits, and asks if they’ll stay for the predictions. Kevin says Profits. Booker says… Choose wisely, King! Well no offense, until you beat the champs, all else is irrelevant. Book goes with the Usos.

JBL agrees with Booker, the Usos are just that dominant. Peter says that they’re going to war. All the DJs of Vegas, we are celebrating a Profits victory! The Profits are ready, but will they be standing tall against the Bloodline?

 

Vegas, baby! The city built on risk and reward!

But to win here, you also need something else: luck. It ignites a spark of opportunity, and it isn’t about risk VS reward, it’s about always looking up. You climb the ladder, grab the prize and change your future! Tonight is the night to go for broke, to take chances, and to take it all! So, you wanna get lucky?

Backstage interview with Liv Morgan.

Sarah congratulates Liv on the win and becoming Miss MITB, but has she decided on which title she is after? Liv says she can cash in any time over the next YEAR, so the possibilities are endless. But she only gets one shot, and she has never wanted anything more than to be champion. WrestleMania sounds good, but for now, she’ll focus on celebrating. Will Liv live her best life and finally get the gold?

 

Raw Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair VS Carmella!

The RawEST Women’s Champion was all ready for the Judgement Day’s Brutal Eradicator, but injuries do happen. Rhea Ripley will be back one day, but her loss is a golden opportunity for the (self-proclaimed) Most Beautiful Woman in the WWE. Will Mella be money once again? Or will looks and past accolades only get her so far against the strongEST, the fastEST, the roughEST, the toughEST, the quickEST, and the BEST in WWE today?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who looks their best with that championship around their waist!

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Bianca waistlocks to SLAM Mella, then holds on. Mella scrambles but can’t get free, and Bianca SLAMS her again.

Bianca RAMS into Mella, and again, Mella clubs back but Bianca lets off. Mella SLAPS Bianca, Bianca rushes in but Mella dodges. Mella tilt-o-whirls but no Mella-Go-Round here!

Fans boo but Mella takes time to compose herself. Bianca goes out after Mella and runs her over! Bianca brings Mella up to put her back in the ring, but Mella scurries away.

Fans count along, and Bianca gets all the way to nine, to backflip and DECK Mella with the tenth!

Fans fire up and Bianca gets Mella up to whip her to a corner. Bianca runs in but Mella dodges and Bianca POSTS herself! Mella gets Bianca in a cradle, TWO! Schoolgirl with feet on the ropes! TWO!! FABULOUS KICK!! Cover, TWO!! Mella is mad again but she stalks Bianca. Mella says Bianca is the tackiEST, the cheapEST, and then she SLAPS Bianca! Bianca ROCKS Mella, torture racks her, for the KISS OF DEATH!!! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall (still Raw Women’s Champion)

Mella just showed that you should never make Bianca the maddEST in the ring, because she will take you out! Will Bianca keep this reign running until it is the longEST? But then Mella YANKS Bianca down and fires off on her! Mella is the sorEST loser! Mella leaves Bianca down and out while fans boo, but will Bianca get the sweetEST revenge for that?

 

Alexa Bliss hangs out with Lily in her locker room.

But uh, where’d all this stuff come from? What’s Lily been up top? Oh, she bought it all, huh? How? Oh, she has a WWE Credit One Bank Visa card! Did she get Alexa anything? In the box? What’s in the box? What’ sin the box? Oh… Wow… Teeny, tiny skates. That was nice of her, but uh, ask for her size first next time.

Dawkins is up and in at 9, but Jey looms over him. Jimmy tells Ford to “SUCK IT” now, and Jey taunts Dawkins. Dawkins slowly gets up, Jey throws a hand but Dawkins ROCKS Jey with a counter punch! And another! Jey DECKS Dawkins with an uppercut! Dawkins flounders to a corner, Jey stays laser focused, then Jey runs in to RAM into Dawkins! Tag to Jimmy, he taunts Ford then ROCKS Dawkins!

Dawkins drops and Jimmy paces around. Jimmy dares Dawkins to go to Ford, but then he stomps Dawkins’ hand! Jimmy stalks Dawkins to ropes, CHOKES him, the ref counts but Jimmy lets off at 4. Jey gets a cheap shot in! Jimmy rains down fists on Dawkins, then raises the finger. Jimmy taunts Ford’s entrance, calls for “UCE! SO! UCE! SO!” Jimmy runs in but Dawkins DECKS him!! Both men are down and fans fire up! Both men crawl, find their way to their corners, hot tags to Jey and Ford! Fans fire up as Ford GAMANGIRIS Jey! Ford climbs up to CROSS- SUPERKICK!!

Wait, a replay shows Ford got his shoulder up! It was barely up, but whether an inch or a foot, it was up! The Profits feel cheated, will they be able to get another go down the line?

 

A spooky video plays.

Some… familiar imagery, perhaps. A few crosses, a church, and… a medal? What does it all mean?

 

SmackDown Women’s Championship: Ronda Rousey VS Natalya!

The Baddest Woman on the Planet refuses to be disrespected, and yet that is what the Queen of Harts has been doing ever since she became #1 contender.

And of course, Theory takes a selfie! Will Theory be taking even more selfies when he cashes in on whoever is Undisputed Universal Champion?


My Thoughts:

Once again, Vincent Kennedy McMahon and team serve up a PPV pizza with wonderful things, only for that last bite to be a stuffed crust full of grape jelly and tuna. Vince, in kayfabe and reality, went out of his way to ruin all the good will MITB 2022 was building. Theory VS Lashley is a very good US Championship match, and it is awesome that Lashley won, but Vegas had it right, Theory getting in was utter BS. And then, him WINNING it is BS of the highest order! The only silver lining, and I mean ONLY, is that if Theory does the Last Man Standing cash-in that everyone brought up, it backfires and he gets his ass kicked by both Roman and Lesnar.

Aside from the dumbass crap Vince gave us, everything else was great. Leading with the Women’s MITB match was a sign of a cash-in, and after an awesome albeit rough and scary match (thank God Shotzi is okay), Liv winning was a great move. Becky got to give us quite the meltdown after, and then each Women’s Championship match had the cash-in possibility on it. Bianca VS Mella was very good, but I figured Bianca would win. Mella attacking Bianca after was a decent cash-in tease, but it seems Liv didn’t think it wasn’t good enough. And then, while a good chunk of Ronda VS Natty ground down to a slog, they managed to make the ending exciting.

Liv cashing in here was quite the surprise. It almost look like Liv was going to fail, and then MITB 2022 would’ve really sucked, but they made the right choice on this one and gave Liv the win. This is a moment Liv and many fans have been waiting for, and now Liv moves back to SmackDown to give us something fresh in the Women’s Division. SummerSlam is going to be pretty wild, with Becky desperate to get back up, and maybe big returns to SmackDown like Charlotte or Bayley. Charlotte would be great, they can finally call back to when Charlotte and Liv feuded during the Riott Squad days and Charlotte was the first to say Liv would have to find herself before becoming champion.

The Usos VS Profits was an awesome tag title match, and while it looked like the Profits were going to get this, I should’ve figured the Usos would retain. But I will say, it is good on them to make a point of Ford getting his shoulder up. They can make this the reason for a rematch at SummerSlam, and maybe then there will be a stipulation on the match like they said there was going to be on this one. Hell, I bet they undid all that because they made a mistake and set that up too soon. And then, the right call needs to be made again where Profits win. The Usos will get to one year as tag team champions, and then they hand things off to another great team. And again, there’s always the chase to get the belts back, so that Usos can be two-time undisputed tag champions.

My Score: 8.1/10
