PLAY BY PLAY

Charlotte Flair opens SmackDown!

The Queen of All Eras, as Charlotte calls herself, prepares for a showdown with Trish Stratus in Toronto but is here in Detroit to speak.

“Every time the Queen steps foot in this ring, you all are witnessing greatness!” Now most people dream of greatness, strive for it and desire it, but sadly, not everyone has the genetics, the talent or the discipline to achieve it. So most people quit, lie or move on to something else. “Just like my opponent at SummerSlam, Trish Stratus!” A WWE Hall of Fame Seven-Time Women’s Champion, and when the industry started to change, she opted for a family and a minivan. At the height of the (R)Evolution, Trish just wants to come back for #OneMoreMatch? No, she sees Charlotte’s greatness and it eats her alive knowing she’s not as great as Charlotte. This generation is superior to the previous, but Trish wants to defy that. Trish wants one more match in front of her family in Canada. But that dream won’t come true, because Charlotte will shatter it.

But please, take a look at the highlights of Charlotte’s career. Wait, the highlight video that comes up is for Trish! Charlotte is very upset as we watch Trish win those seven Women’s Championships, and confronting Charlotte with, “To be the Woman, you’ve got to beat the Woman.” Charlotte shakes her head, but here comes Trish in person! Charlotte didn’t like that, huh? The Queen gets what she wants, huh? Charlotte remembers seeing Trish’s minivan in the parking lot now. Cute comeback. Trish joins Charlotte in the ring, and the reason for that swerve was to remind Charlotte of why she’s even here and having these “amazing, history-making opportunities.”

Yes, Trish has been dreaming of one more match. And it does eat at Trish, because Charlotte embodies what Trish fought for. Maybe this is to prove something to her kids, or her fans, but it’s mostly to prove it to herself. To quote the late, great Harley Race, “There is no greater feeling than in the world than to be under these bright lights.” Trish needs that again! Charlotte may be the Queen, but she’s still not Trish. Well then welcome to a nightmare, Trish. Because Charlotte vows to make Trish #BowDowntotheQueen! WOO~! Trish SLAPS Charlotte! Charlotte contains her fury while Trish smirks at her. Then Charlotte grins and takes her leave. Will the Queen still be smiling after she and Trish have it out in Toronto?

 

Rey Mysterio VS Dolph Ziggler!

The salty Show-Off put his foot in his mouth a couple times and will now have to pay for his trash talk by taking on Goldberg at SummerSlam! But before facing one legend, he takes on a legend of lucha libre! Will Ziggler get a call from the 619 before flying to the 416?

And Ziggler mocks the Goldberg entrance! Is he going to mock legend after legend until he’s finally shut up on Sunday?

Ziggler attacks Mysterio before he gets in the ring! He goes after the mask and shirt, too! Then he SUPERKICKS Mysterio down! The referee shouts for back-up and out come extra refs and security. Ziggler paces as fans boo and jeer. Ziggler just busts through the referees to bring Mysterio up for a second SUPERKICK! Then he storms over to the timekeeper to take a mic.

“Oh, another legend goes down, courtesy of DZ!” All these legends can keep crawling, but the same thing happens every time. Nostalgia isn’t enough, and Goldberg wants a fight because Ziggler’s next. Well Ziggler will do what he does best and then end the legend of Goldberg! He’s not next, because this will be Goldberg’s LAST! But to defend the honor of Mysterio and Goldberg, it is Mustafa Ali! The Beacon of Light gets in, blocks the superkick to hit a windmill kick! Then he DIVES out onto Ziggler! And now Ali will take Ziggler on instead! SmackDown goes picture in picture as things sort out!

Dolph Ziggler VS Mustafa Ali!

Ali is fuming but so is Ziggler. Ziggler gets up while Ali speaks to the crowd and Ziggler about the disrespect Ziggler has been showing. Ali speaks more to officially challenge Ziggler to this match! The referee gets back in and Ziggler reluctantly accepts this revised match. Ziggler rushes Ali but gets rolled up! TWO, and Ziggler knees low! Ziggler bumps Ali off buckles then brags about it. He whips Ali corner to corner but Ali reverses. Ali runs in but is put on the apron. He hits Ziggler away but Ziggler trips up his slingshot! Ali crashes and burns hard to the ground!

Ziggler catches his breath, frustrated as he is, and goes out to fetch Ali. Ziggler drags Ali up and brings him over to bump off steel steps! Then he throws Ali back into the ring and covers, TWO! Ziggler keeps his focus as he taunts Ali at the ropes. He slaps Ali around and drags him up. Ali fights back with body shots but Ziggler kicks low. Ziggler whips and pops Ali up to drop Ali down! Ziggler roars at the fans before going back to Ali with a chinlock. He even rakes his eyes in Ali’s face! The ref reprimands Ziggler and makes sure the hold isn’t a choke. Ali fights his way up and out of the hold, but Ziggler haymakers him down! SmackDown returns to single picture as Ziggler whips again. Ali turns the flapjack into a dropkick!

Ali counter punches Ziggler and CHOPS! He bumps Ziggler off buckles and stomps, then whips corner to corner, Ziggler reverses but Ali slides to a stop. Ali dodges and roundhouses Ziggler back! Then slingshot somersault facebuster! Cover, TWO! Ziggler crawls to ropes but Ali follows after. Ali pulls him up but Ziggler elbows him away! Then clotheslines him down! Ziggler then goes to a corner to tune up the band! He isn’t done mocking HBK, it seems. Ali stands, Ziggler moves in but misses! Ali rolls him up, TWO!! Ziggler headbutts Ali, then SUPERKICKS! Cover, Ziggler wins!

Winner: Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall

The Show-Off still backs up everything with actions! But will he be able to survive Goldberg’s wrath at SummerSlam?

 

SmackDown returns to a sit-down interview with Roman Reigns.

Before getting started, Kayla does thank him for taking the time for this interview. How is he keeping it together after two attempts on his life? He’s been through so much this year, but he’s always known what’s going on. He’s always known who is after him. But not this time. He doesn’t know who this is or why they’re doing it. Then how is it affecting his life? The WWE offers personal security, but he’s always done things his way. It’s one thing to fight in the ring, it’s another to go after him with a car. He only worries about his family. Than given all the discussion, who does Roman think is after him? Roman only knows it isn’t Samoa Joe after all. And so now, Roman does apologize to Joe for dragging his name through the mud.

But to the one who is out there after him, Roman wants to know why, and he will get answers before tonight is over. Will the culprit, or culprits, be revealed?

 

SmackDown returns with a tribute to Harley Race.

 

Challenger VS Challenger: Natalya VS Ember Moon!

A unique match as the #1 Contender for the Raw Women’s Championship takes on the #1 Contender for the SmackDown Women’s Champion! The Queen of Harts has sharpened her claws for going after The Man in a Submission Match, while the War Goddess looks to Eclipse Bayley! Where will the momentum lie on the way to SummerSlam?

The bell rings and these two tie up fast and furious! Natty wrenches but Ember handsprings to wring Natty back. The two circle and go again. Natty throws Ember to a corner then is on her with furious fists! She backs off long enough to bring Ember out and whip. Ember handsprings through the back drop to SUPERKICK Natty down! Ember runs to hit a sliding complete shot! Then she climbs up, but Natty hurries to the apron. Ember kicks her down and off the apron, but misses the lariat. But she hits a shotgun dropkick to blast Natty into barriers! Ember fires up but Natty shoves her into the LED apron! Discus lariat wipes Ember out! And then Natty puts on the Sharpshooter on the outside! The ring count climbs, and hits 10!

Double Count-Out

Again, Natalya sacrifices a win for damaging an opponent. Bayley runs out to pry Natty off! Natty takes her anger out on Bayley with a shove! Natty storms off and Bayley is confused by this change in a former friend. Bayley checks on her challenger, but Ember doesn’t trust her after last week’s sneaky Bayley2Belly. Trust aside, how will Bayley and Ember handle their match on Sunday?

 

SmackDown returns to the Kevin Owens Show!

And the host is already in the ring. He admits this isn’t a normal edition, and just cuts to the chase. He tells Shane McMahon to just get out here and get this over with. Shane O’Mac takes his time making Kevin wait. Shane loves being dramatic, but we have things to do than wait for his “sorry ass”! The music hits and Shane appears, shuffling and dancing like always. He goes to the ring and joins Kevin in the ring, and of course gets his “BEST in the WOOOOOOOOOR-” No, Kevin cuts off “the crap”! It has been said enough, but now we get to business. Kevin’s career is on the line, but everyone wonders why Shane’s career isn’t on the line? The answer is simple: Shane’s last name. As a McMahon, Shane can do and say whatever he wants.

But ever since then, Kevin has heard many people out. Right here, right now, Kevin appeals to Shane’s pride and that “giant, disgusting ego”. Since the McMahons talk about what’s best for business and the fans, Shane should put his in-ring career on the line! If Shane wins, Kevin’s gone. But if Kevin wins, we all get what we want: Shane stops wrestling! Fans cheer “YES! YES!” Shane will ponder that for a second. It’s a no. Shane’s ego is out of control? Kevin’s ego got him here in the first place! Kevin was the one talking about quitting. And as a reminder, there’s no shame in losing to the best.

But when Kevin does lose, Shane lays this out for him: he could do it the old fashioned way, a pin; he could put on “one of the most devastating submissions” in his Triangle and make Kevin tap; or Kevin ends up outside the ring for more than the count of ten; or perhaps, this could continue and Shane pushes Kevin to the point of snapping, which he does, and Kevin gets himself disqualified. The bottom-line is that Kevin will be done and Shane will be rid of him. So the whole point of what Shane just said is he won’t do it? How surprising. Shane’s smart, but after all the risky things Shane has done in his career, he’s no longer got any balls. Shane says he has balls, but he sees Kevin needs a preview. Kevin is ready and is clearing the ring for him! But here comes Elias! Kevin fights him and Shane, then throws Elias out! Only for Shane to clobber him!

Shane goes out but Kevin is after him with hands! Then he throws Shane over the desk! Kevin clears the desk off and Detroit is fired up! But Elias returns to attack Kevin! Kevin gives Elias a STUNNER! Kevin roars but Shane sweeps his legs! And then rains down right hands! And lefts! And stomps and kicks! But now Shane sees the table and decides to tip it over onto Kevin! And then punches Kevin as he crawls out! Shane grabs a chain and presses it against Kevin’s face! And then he backs up, to run in and basement dropkick the chair into Kevin’s face! “You are done! You are over!” Shane slaps Kevin over and over but referees hurry out to pull him off. Shane claims Kevin is the one who went too far, and now he’ll pay for it. Does Kevin stand a chance of fighting back in Toronto?

 

Sami Zayn is on SmackDown!

The Critic of the Critics claims he is going to “help” Aleister Black by accepting the open challenge and beating him so badly, the mystique will finally die. Sami now picks up a mic to say, “You know… Last week I came and I offered Aleister Black a gift!” Sami is providing a service at SummerSlam by exposing and freeing Aleister of his hype “that he knows he can’t live up to!” But what is Aleister’s response? Silence! Instead of manning up, Aleister is locked in that dark room. That is his safe space. As long as Aleister stays dark and mysterious, “parasites” known as fans will think he’s cool. But in reality, Mr. Pick a Fight with Me doesn’t want this fight, because he knows Sami will win! And that terrifies him.

But speak of the Dutch Devil, and he shall appear! “Oh but Sami, this match is not happening at SummerSlam. No, this match happens now!” The Embodiment of the End rises from the fog to make SmackDown and Sami #FadetoBlack!

Aleister Black VS Sami Zayn!

The bell rings on this surprise match, and Sami wants to reason with Aleister. But then he kicks low and gets a headlock! Aleister powers out and bumps shoulders to then roundhouse Sami down! Sami is on the apron, and Aleister runs over! But he fakes Sami out to springboard and sit back down! SmackDown goes picture in picture as Aleister waits patiently yet aggressively.

Sami approaches and Aleister is ready. Sami plays cat ‘n’ mouse but gets caught with haymakers! Aleister kicks Sami around the corner and into barriers! And then against them! Sami flounders and Aleister puts him in the ring. Sami kicks back and has Aleister on the ropes, literally. The ref backs Sami off and Aleister gets to a corner. Sami comes over to throw haymakers, and CHOPS! Sami keeps on Aleister and whips, but Aleister rolls off Sami’s back to roundhouse him down again! Aleister drags Sami up but is powered to a corner. The ref counts and Sami lets up only to throw more hands. The ref counts more and has to back Sami off. Sami comes back and drags Aleister up for a tornado, but Aleister powers out. Roundhouse is blocked but Aleister adds a hook kick! Aleister waistlocks but Sami bucks him off to then run him over!

SmackDown returns to single picture as Sami rains down rights on Aleister! The ref counts and Sami lets off. Sami stalks Aleister to the corner and throws more hands. He CHOPS Aleister but Aleister comes back with forearms. Sami punches and knees low, then grinds into Aleister. Sami slaps then whips Aleister to clothesline him down! Cover, TWO! Sami tries again, TWO! Aleister gets to ropes but Sami is on him again. Sami lets up at the ref’s count, but fans chant “Sami Sucks!” Aleister hits Sami back with haymakers and kicks, then runs, but into a scoop and backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Sami grows frustrated but he keeps on Aleister with punches right to the head. Sami wraps on a chinlock and traps an arm, but Aleister endures. Aleister frees his arm but Sami knees and punches back.

Sami whips but Aleister kicks him back! Aleister counter punches, but Sami shoves. Aleister uses that to rally with elbows! Aleister fires off a strike fest, sweep and sliding knee! Then a kip-up! Detroit fires up as Aleister hits the quebrada! Aleister aims at Sami corner to corner, knee-trigger! Sami is down, and Aleister picks him up with a foot. Aleister spins, BLACK MASS! Cover, Aleister wins!

Winner: Aleister Black, by pinfall

Aleister wanted a fight, and he won the fight! Will the Embodiment of the End move on looking for a fight over gold?

 

Backstage interview with Shelton Benjamin.

Does he see himself ever becoming WWE 24/7 Champion. He speaks! “Well…” Not much of an answer, but will his actions speak louder than words?

 

SmackDown presents: Firefly Fun House!

Huskus gorges himself on sweets! Bray Wyatt comes by and says that his SummerSlam opponent, Finn Balor, is very brave. And Bray loves that! But just like Huskus covers up insecurity with sugar, sadly, Finn’s courage is empty. He invited the Fiend to his door, willingly! YOWIE WOWIE! Bray has a good laugh before saying that it’s hurt for so long now. It’s finally time for Finn to hurt. The Fiend is coming. #LetMeIn. The Fiend has already taken down legends like Mick Foley and Kurt Angle, but will he end Finn’s legend before it even begins?

 

Chad Gable finishes a workout.

But Elias doesn’t appreciate him being so close to his guitar. Chad apologizes, but Elias has to apologize for thinking Chad was a kid. But you’ve got to be this tall to step to a star like Elias. Got that, kid? Elias leaves, but will Gable get back at him next time they meet?

 

Kofi Kingston responds to everything Randy Orton has said.

Orton claims credit for Kofimania? No, it happened in spite of guys like Orton. Kofi always took the fight to Orton. It is hard to find a way to stand out in the WWE, but Kofi did just that. Things were clicking, fans were fired up for Kofi, and it was going Kofi’s way. But then things went the other way. Orton’s memorable “STUPID!” and his backstage influence held Kofi back. Kofi fought as hard as he could, but would go home every day wondering why he was good enough to be here, but not to be at the next level. He just kept grinding day after day, and now, after 11 years, Kofi IS at that next level! That long wait made Kofi appreciate every moment.

The Power of Positivity is real for Kofi, and he wants to make it real for everyone else. If Kofi did it, they can do it, too. Orton just wants to hold others down. But beating Orton will be vindication for Kofi’s entire career. And then everyone will see Kofi does belong. Will the dream survive even the most dangerous letters in professional wrestling?

 

The New Day VS The Planet’s Tag Team Champions!

AWWWW~ Mo-Town~! Feel~ the power~ as we get a non-title rematch of the current and previous SmackDown Tag Team Champions! While Kofi prepares for The Viper in Toronto, will Big E and Xavier Woods stay strong against Rowan and Daniel Bryan?

The bell rings and Bryan goes right at Woods! He bumps Woods off buckles then throws haymakers! He whips Woods but Woods ducks and dodges to headscissor Bryan down! Then he dropkicks Bryan out of the ring! Woods runs and FLIES to take Bryan down! The New Day has control already as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Bryan wrenches Big E’s arm into a shoulder breaker. And another! And another! Then he whips Big E, but Big E reels Bryan in for a LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Tag to Woods and the New Day combine for the wheelbarrow splash on Bryan! Cover, TWO! Woods brings Bryan up with a wrench to a wristlock, but Bryan rolls and reverses. Bryan brings Woods to the corner and tags in Rowan. Big Red clubs and scoops Woods for a big slam! Rowan glares at Big E before he whips Woods to a corner. Woods goes up and over and enziguris Rowan back! Woods hurries up to rain down rights, but Rowan stops him at 5. Woods mule kicks, CHOPS and gets the rest of those punches! Rowan still shoves him away, runs, and they collide! Woods writhes from the Big Red body check! Cover, TWO!

Rowan keeps on Woods with a neck wrench and knees driving into his back. The ref counts as Rowan pulls hair with the neck wrench, so Rowan lets up. Rowan drags Woods up and headbutts him down. The fans rally for the New Day as Rowan grinds his boot into Woods. Rowan tags Bryan but Woods fights back. Rowan smothers Woods then whips Bryan to dropkick Woods! Rowan adds his corner splash and Bryan covers, TWO! Bryan keeps on Woods with a grounded cravat. Woods endures as they go around, but Bryan drops knees. Bryan wrenches on the cravat more, then drops another knee! Fans rally for the New Day as Bryan stalks Woods. Bryan has the cravat again but Woods fights up and out. Bryan shoves Woods but gets an elbow! Woods hurries but Bryan grabs an arm! Woods and Big E reach, but Woods has to shove and rolling elbow Bryan down first!

Fans rally up as both Woods and Bryan crawl. Hot tag to Rowan, who hits Big E first! Rowan tosses Woods out on the opposite end! Then he whips Woods into steel steps! And then into the timekeeper’s area! The New Day is down while we go to one more break!

SmackDown returns once more, and Woods leaps at Rowan with a missile dropkick! Woods and rowan are down and Detroit is thunderous! Hot tags to Bryan and Big E! Big E gets Bryan for a big overhead suplex! And another! And then the side belly2belly! Big E swivels those hips and runs, for the BIG SPLASH! But he’s not done there. The fans clap along as Big E watches Bryan stand. Big E scoops but Bryan escapes and runs to dropkick the legs out! Bryan starts giving No Kicks! Kick after kick, but Big E ducks the buzzsaw! And rolls Bryan up, TWO! But he gets Bryan right into a Stretch Muffler! Big E lifts Bryan up but Bryan fights out, to the Lebell Lock! Big E reaches, endures, and pries his way free! Big E’s strength helps him turn it into a cover, ONE, into the Triangle Hold! But Big E is too strong for that as he deadlifts and POWERBOMBS Bryan down! Cover, TWO!!

Big E grits his teeth as he hauls Bryan up. Bryan hist low and reaches but Rowan is not there to tag. Big E throws body shots, and whips, but Bryan shoulders and uppercuts back. Tag to Rowan, and Big Red heel kicks Big E down! Cover, TWO!! Rowan dares Big E to stand, and Big E does. Rowan fireman’s carries, but Big E slips out! Woods tags in and kicks Rowan! Big E LARIATS Rowan down! Woods hurries to the top and walks the ropes, LIMIT BREAKER elbow! Cover, but Bryan breaks it just in time! Big E throws Bryan out and runs, to SPEAR Bryan down! Detroit loses their minds but Woods builds speed, to run into steel steps from Rowan!

Winners: The New Day, by disqualification

Rowan wrecks Big E with those steps now! And Bryan stomps away on Woods! Fans boo and jeer, but Rowan hauls Big E up for the Iron Claw SLAM! Rowan feeds Woods to the Knee Plus! Rowan and Bryan leave The New Day wrecked, but will this get them a tag title rematch?

 

Roman Reigns is wary as he walks the hall.

The Big Dog hits the locker room, and asks everyone but Buddy Murphy to leave. Roman sits with the Best Kept Secret. He wants to know if Buddy did it. Did what? The forklift and girders. Or the car’s hit and run from last week. Roman saw the footage and Buddy was around. So Buddy either did it or knows who did. Buddy says he is not lying, but he does not know who was after him. Roman wants answers, or it won’t go well for Buddy. Buddy doesn’t want trouble. He doesn’t know who it was. But if he did, he still wouldn’t tell Roman “a damn thing.” Roman accepts that answer, with an uppercut!

Roman throws Buddy all around and demands to know who is the one after him! He slams Buddy on the table, and asks if Buddy really won’t tell. Roman grinds Buddy into the wall and wants the name! Buddy says it was Rowan. As in Big Red Rowan?! Buddy didn’t see Bryan, only Rowan. In the ring, Bryan and Rowan hear this confession. Even Bryan looks a little confused. Did the Planet’s Champion know his henchman has gone rogue?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty good SmackDown for a go-home. The opening segment with Trish and Charlotte was good, the highlight reel swerve was great to stick it to Charlotte while helping give fans, especially fans who never saw Trish in action, get an idea of just how great this match will be. Then we get a pretty great build for Ziggler tonight, from mocking Goldberg to laying out Mysterio to having a real good match with Ali. But this is all because he’s going to get demolished by Goldberg. I was hoping for more out of Natty VS Ember, but I suppose this just helps build Heel Natty up. That Submission Match of Natty and Becky is definitely going to be a great match, but perhaps that’ll motivate Bayley VS Ember to be even better.

That Kevin Owens Show was pretty good, but obviously it’s just to get Shane points before Kevin beats the snot out of him at SummerSlam. It’s still a shame this isn’t a straight-up I Quit match, but that’s probably so there isn’t a reason for Shane to hurt himself. And it was actually a good move to put Sami VS Aleister on tonight, it was a good match but SummerSlam doesn’t need to have 20 matches. Plus, we can get more and better Sami VS Aleister matches as we move towards SmackDown on Fox. I’m still confused by the “Shelton Benjamin does math in his head” thing, but maybe he actually does get involved in a real WWE 24/7 Championship story. Gable VS Elias seems to be the next thing for them as we go past SummerSlam, that should be an interesting move. Kofi’s response promo was great, and I would think he is guaranteed to win at SummerSlam.

New Day VS Planet’s Tag Champions was a great match, but it seems a lot of this was to set up the story with Roman and the mystery assailant. The DQ finish even ties into it, because it was all initiated by Rowan. And while Roman gives Buddy Murphy a rub by simply pointing him out and going after him, obviously this reveals the one behind it all has been Rowan. I wonder if things will turn for Bryan to have given Rowan orders or being completely shocked by Rowan’s actions. I wouldn’t shove Roman VS Rowan in on SummerSlam, let things build towards Survivor Series so we can get the story beats of this.

My Score: 8.2/10

Rey Mysterio & AJ Styles VS The Judgement Day!

The King of Lucha has so far failed to reach his son, Dominik. And the Phenomenal One has so far refused to give in despite his former friend, Finn Balor, reaching out to him. With an I Quit match between Finn and Edge this Saturday at Extreme Rules, will the Prince and the Punisher make Rey give up on Dom and Styles give up on his pride? Or will Rey & Styles get their pound of flesh before the Rated R Superstar gets his?

Before the match, the Judgement Day get mics as fans in St. Paul boo. Finn says, “Eleven years ago, Edge was medically forced to quit.” Rhea adds a sarcastic, “Aww.” Finn says against all the odds, Edge fought back with strength and determination, and he overcame and returned to doing what he loves most, and that is performing in the ring for all the fans. Priest says, “Let’s hear it for Edge, huh?” Finn says, “But as with most things in life, you can only outrun fate for so long. Judgement catches up to all of us. And at Extreme Rules, I am gonna act as the cruel hand of fate that reminds Edge he doesn’t belong anywhere near a ring that I’m standing in!”

Rhea laughs but fans boo. Finn says he’s doing Edge a favor cuz he’s a nice guy. Finn will beat Edge so bad that he’ll be down and out and he’ll be forced to utter the words, “I QUIT!” Priest tells Finn that he has to say, Priest is so excited to witness firsthand a beating so bad that Edge does have to say “I Quit.” And let that serve as notice to anyone that wants to step to The Judgement Day! They will always rise. And that goes especially for their opponents tonight, AJ Styles & Rey Mysterio. Fans chant, “Who’s Your Daddy?” at Dom but Rhea whispers something to him. Dom says, “I’ll tell you exactly who my daddy is, and it’s not Rey Mysterio.”

Dom tells “Jefe, I hate you. I hate you so much. You lied to me my entire life. And I have a new family now, thanks to the Judgement Day.” Finn says speaking of family, his old friend, AJ Styles! Styles, Finn could’ve ended you last night- No, not last night! Last week! He’s so mad at Styles he’s messing up! But Finn could’ve ended Styles but he chose not to. And do you know why? Because Styles is Finn’s friend. The offer is still extended. But trust Finn, he’s not a bad guy, so don’t make him do bad things! Or else the Judgement Day will start by opening up- Wait! Here comes Styles! The Phenomenal One and the King of Lucha make their entrances, and this battle begins!

Rey and Styles don’t wait for a bell, they brawl with Priest and Finn already! Styles whips Finn but Dom and Rhea get Finn outta there. Only for Rey to RANA him! Styles clotheslines Priest out of the ring to the SLINGSHOT FOREARM! Fans fire up as #REYJ stand tall already. Finn is seething as he glares at Rey but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and the match is officially underway as Finn whips Rey to a corner. Finn snarls, runs in but into an elbow! Rey runs and RANAS Finn again! Rey then runs at the corner but is put on the apron. Rey GAMANGIRIS back, goes up top and SEATED SENTONS! Rey keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges and then tilt-o-whirl RANAS! Finn staggers to the corner and Priest tags in. Rey dares Priest to bring it, then goes after Priest at the ropes! Priest shoves Rey away, Rey ducks ‘n’ dodges but Priest avoids the crossbody! Rey flops, stands up, and Priest BOOTS him down! Cover, TWO! Rhea coaches Priest and he whips Rey into the corner.

Priest runs to back elbow! Tag to Finn, they mug Rey, and Finn snap suplexes Rey for Uno Amigo! And then another for Dos Amigos! Fans boo as Finn gives us Latino Heat, and he finishes THREE AMIGOS! Cover, TWO! Finn is annoyed but fans rally up as Rey stays in this. Finn drags Rey up, puts him against ropes, but Rey holds ropes to block the whip. Finn gets Rey loose to whip and slide him out of the ring! Rey hits the floor and Rhea is there to taunt him. The ref starts a ring count but Priest drags Rey up to scoop him. Priest fakes a Snake Eyes on the desk to SNAKE EYES off the apron!

Fans boo but Priest tags Finn back in. Finn waits on Rey as he crawls in. Finn stomps away at the ropes, then lets off as the ref counts. Rey crawls but Finn drags him up to snapmare and chinlock. Finn grinds Rey, leans on the hold, and fans rally up. Rey fights, throws elbows, and JAWBREAKERS free! Rey reaches out but Finn keeps him from Styles! Finn knees low, whips Rey to ropes, but Rey wheelbarrows and BULLDOGS! Fans fire up but Rhea freaks out as both men are down!

Styles reels Priest in, but Priest shoves Styles and Finn holds the ropes open! Styles tumbles to the floor and the Judgement Day is back in control as Raw goes to break.

Styles endures, pushes to a cover, TWO! Styles hooks Priest’s leg and rolls him, but Priest rolls through to DECK Styles! Priest stands Styles up, springboards, but into an ATOMIC DROP! And then Styles PELES again! Fans fire up and both men crawl again, but Rhea is lurking! Finn distracts and Rhea trips Rey off the apron! Fans boo but Priest drags Styles away to then LARIAT! Tag to Finn, he and Priest whip Styles, but Styles blocks a kick!

Styles sends Priest’s kick into Finn’s stomach, and then reels them both in for a DOUBLE DDT! Fans fire up as Styles, Finn and Priest are all down, but Rhea eggs Rey on. Then Dom stands in the way and eggs Rey on! Dom kneels and dares Rey to hit him! Rey says this is not the time. But then Rhea CLOBBERS Rey while the ref is checking Priest! Rhea dusts herself off and Styles sees what happened. But then Finn SHOTGUNS Styles down! Finn goes up top, COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Judgement Day wins!

Winners: The Judgement Day, by pinfall

Rey can’t keep focus with Dom in his head, and that costs the team! Styles is upset and Rey apologizes, but then Styles shoves Rey down! Dom may be in Rey’s head, but is Finn getting in Styles’? Wait, then Finn CLOBBERS Styles! He, Priest, Dom and Rhea all stomp away on Styles, and Finn keeps saying, “I’m your friend! I’m your only friend! Why don’t you listen to me?!” Fans boo but Finn drags Styles up, to feed him to Priest’s SOUTH OF HEAVEN CHOKE SLAM!! If this is how Finn treats a longtime friend, just how far will he go to end an enemy?

 

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

Kevin Patrick finds The All Mighty as he’s making his way into the arena, and congratulates him on his three month reign. A dominant US Championship reign, but what’s next? Has it been three months already? Well, Lashley’s legacy is solidified but he will not become complacent. He said it once and he’ll say it again: It isn’t the title that makes the man, it is the man that makes the title. So three days, three months, three years, his mentality won’t change. Lashley knew what it takes to get here. He’s been pushed by the industry’s best and he’s beaten them all. McIntyre, Reigns, Lesnar, and Rollins.

So what’s next? Lashley wants someone who had the same hustle and desire that he had to get here. Someone with that mentality is what Lashley is after. Well, then, Mustafa Ali has plenty of desire. But for some reason, he’s still at the back of the line, waiting to be called. But he is done waiting. Ali is done! He is stepping up to the front of the line, and he wants an opportunity now. Right now! Okay, Lashley sees the hustle, the grind. Just keep it up and Lashley will make sure Ali gets that opportunity. NO! Ali isn’t asking! He’s demanding an opportunity! Lashley says people are getting too comfortable disrespecting him. If Ali wants his opportunity, he’s got it!

Will the Beacon regret getting the All Mighty’s attention? Or is he going to make the most of this opportunity he made for himself?

 

Sami Zayn and Jimmy Uso are backstage!

And they’re cracking up about something. Something about the couch and the chair being on fire but Sami didn’t see it so he was still dancing. Solo Sikoa is there and doesn’t seem quite as amused as Jimmy by this story. Sami’s friend runs in with a fire extinguisher, asks where his dog went, and Sami says, “I’m right here.” HA! Jimmy wishes he was there, that sounded like a good time. But then Jey storms in and Jimmy clams up. Sami says hey, Jey. What’s so funny? Sami says it’s not that important. Right, y’all’re here having a good time when they’re supposed to be handling business! Jimmy says relax, they’re just joking.

Sami says no, Jey is right. This is business. The Bloodline has to let everyone know that next week, the Tribal Chief is coming as part of the Raw season premiere. Right! Sami says the Honorary Uce can lead by example. Let’s put some fools on notice! YEET! Let’s go! Oh hey, look here. Sami addresses the Street Profits and lets them and all of Raw know. Next week, the Bloodline will be here with the Tribal Chief, so prepare to acknowledge him. Montez Ford tells Angelo Dawkins, “Look who it is! It’s the Honorary Uce! The hype man of the century, Sami Zayn! Along with the Bloodline, walking around Monday Night Raw like they own the arena.”

You don’t own anything, Sami! In fact, there’s only two things the Bloodline needs to acknowledge, and that’s DEEZ- No, whoa, hold on. Don’t do ’em like that, fam. Jimmy says no, finish it. Deez what? Say something disrespectful and get two matching boots, Tez. He of course means the bad leg the Profits gave Ford the last time they faced off. Dawkins says Jey’s got a lot of bass in his voice. How about Dawks breaks off a boot in Jey’s ass? Solo has everyone step back. The Street Champion dares Dawkins to try that on him. Then say less, fam, Dawks will see you out there!

Sami says that’s good, see you out there, fam. The Bloodline’s Enforcer is ready, will he tear into Dawkins like he did Ricochet and Moss last Friday?

 

Bobby Lashley VS Mustafa Ali!

The Rocky Mountain Machine has reigned for three months, and looks to keep going and going and going. But he won’t stand for those thinking he’s some big pushover. Will he turn out the lights on The Beacon? Or will Ali catch Bobby off guard here tonight?

The bell rings and Ali rushes to dropkick, but Lashley dodges! Ali crashes, Lashley fires off on him, then OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes him! Lashley aims and runs in to RAM Ali into a corner! And again and again! Then he turns Ali for a NECKBREAKER! Lashley then drags Ali up to suplex and hold him! Fans fire up for the SLAM! Ali grits his teeth but Lashley aims again. Lashley runs corner to corner but into a KNEE! Ali aims to CHOP! And ROCK! And whip, but Lashley blocks! Lashley whips but Ali goes up, only to get caught! Ali slips off and ducks to then SUPERKICK! Lashley wobbles, Ali goes up and up and leaps, FLYING DDT!

Lashley bails out and fans fire up as Ali builds speed, to DIVE! Direct hit, Lashley hits desk, but stays up. Ali brings Lashley back but Lashley blocks to toss Ali in first. Ali KICKS Lashley back out! But Lashley drags Ali out to join him and LARIAT! Ali gets turned inside out and fans fire up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Lashley drags Ali back up. Lashley elbows him in the corner over and over, then whips him corner to corner hard! Ali bounces off the buckles and hits the mat, and Lashley looms over him. Lashley drags Ali up to put him in a corner for more elbows. Lashley CLUBS Ali, whips him corner to corner again, and Ali bounces off buckles into the COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Ali survives but Lashley keeps focus. Ali says, “I’m not staying down.” Lashley drags Ali up and bumps him off buckles. Lashley puts Ali up top, climbs up after him, and then brings Ali up. Ali fires off body shots and forearms and headbutts! Lashley falls!

Ali aims, and he 450 SPLASHES Lashley’s ARM!! Lashley writhes, Ali drags him up and CLUBS the bad arm! But Lashley shoves him away with the good arm. Ali SHOTGUNS Lashley into a corner, fires off on the bad arum, and runs, into a MILE HIGH SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!? Ali survives and shocks Lashley on that one. Lashley drag Ali up and gut wrenches him for the CLIFFHANGER! Cover, TWO?!? Lashley is growing frustrated with Ali, but Ali crawls and drags himself up. Lashley tells Ali to stay down, “You don’t want this.” Ali SLAPS Lashley! Lashley’s pissed now! Lashley TOSSES Ali out!

Lashley goes out, drags Ali up, and fireman’s carries to POST him! Ali flies away but Lashley refreshes the count. Lashley hauls him up again, and POSTS Ali again! Lashley refreshes the count again, hauls Ali up for a third time, and TOSSES him into the timekeeper’s area! Lashley goes into the ring to let the count handle Ali. Ali crawls, the count is 5 of 10, but Ali flounders. We’re at 8, then 9, but Ali is in at 9.999!! Lashley is more confused than anything! What is Ali thinking? Lashley aims from the corner, runs in, and SPEARS Ali!! But that’s not all! Lashley is going to teach Ali a lesson with the HURT LOCK!! Ali refuses to give up, but he fades out! Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by submission

Lashley has a mighty body, but Ali shows he has a mighty heart. Ali still lost, but did he at least win Lashley’s respect? Lashley goes back to Ali as he sputters around. Lashley drags Ali up, but SETH ROLLINS attacks! And CURB STOMPS Lashley!! The Visionary laughs as he drags Lashley up and CURB STOMPS him onto the belt!! The Visionary gets revenge for not becoming WWE United States Champion. And then just because he can, CURB STOMP for Ali to the floor! Rollins is going to hang around because he has a face-to-face with Matt Riddle, but there is a No Physicality Agreement in effect. Will the Visionary and the Bro stick to that agreement?

 

Raw returns with Rollins in the ring.

Last week, after Raw went off the air, Rollins instigated another brawl with Matt Riddle, which is why there’s the No Physicality Agreement, and why Daniel Cormier will be the Fight Pit’s special guest referee! But Rollins is all smiles as he says, “Well now that we have cleared Bobby Trashley from the ring, HAHAHAHA, we can get on with this evening’s festivities. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night Rollins! And I am your host for this evening. I am a visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth…” “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” “And this Saturday, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I go one on one with the Original Bro… Matt Riddle.”

It’ll be in a match that is soon to become synonymous with Rollins. “Ladies and gentlemen, behold: The Fight Pit.” The narrator of this video package says, “As animosity reaches its peak and hatred goes beyond extreme, the endurance of one’s will is put to the test in one of the most barbaric structures in WWE History. No ring ropes, only steal. No doors, no pinfalls, no escape. The only way to win is by submission or knockout. A blank canvas built for torment, painted only by destruction and devastation. Where your only weapons are your skills and your ability to absorb pain. Toughness is showcased. Careers are altered. But in the end only one will have their hand raised in victory. But neither will ever be the same again.”

Rollins says, “Oooh~! The things I’m gonna do to Riddle inside the Fight Pit. I’m gonna show him what I just showed Bobby Lashley, what I showed Cody Rhodes, what the entire world already knows, and that is I am the most dangerous man in the history of this industry. But that’s Saturday, and we’re here in St. Paul tonight. And I’m scheduled to go face to face with Matt Riddle, so let’s not waste anymore time, Riddle! I know you’re back there scootering around, so why don’t you scoot you annoying face out here so it can piss me off in person.” Fans boo Rollins but “Bro…” Here comes Riddle!

Riddle has a mic to say, “Bro, bro, bro.” Rollins says there he is! No scooter? Aww. Well there’s the guy whose face Rollins will smash this Saturday. Come and pay your respects to the King of the Fight Pit! Riddle asks Rollins what he’s even talking about. Riddle needs to remind Rollins that he’s never BEEN in a Fight Pit before. Riddle has! Well Rollins reminds Riddle that tonight, there is the No Physicality Agreement. Fans boo and Rollins says he knows they want to see them fight, but if Riddle so much as lays a finger on Rollins, the match will be off. Riddle says don’t worry, he won’t put much stitches in that pretty little forehead.

Riddle is actually going to give Rollins an educational lesson on the Fight Pit. Because Riddle won’t just hurt Rollins, he won’t just beat Rollins, Riddle is gonna kill Rollins on Saturday. When Riddle beats Rollins’ lifeless body with elbows and fists and Daniel Cormier has to pull Riddle away and raise his hand in victory, the fans won’t be singing Rollins’ song, it’ll be “BRO~ OHHH~ OHHHHH~!” Riddle gets in Rollins’ face about it but Rollins laughs it off. Until the fans echo it! Rollins says Riddle has it twisted! Even though Riddle and Cormier come from the same place, Cormier isn’t on Riddle’s side. Cormier is a fan of Rollins!

But Rollins has to admit, “Bro,” Riddle has a nice signing voice. Does he sing his kids to sleep at night? “Oh… That’s right. You’re not allowed to see your kids anymore, are you?” Rollins laughs and dares Riddle to take a shot. Wait! He can’t! Because they have their big money match and Riddle needs all the cash he can get. Cuz let’s face it, child support can get expensive. Rollins laughs in Riddle’s face but Riddle tells him his breath is KICKING. But here’s a question for Rollins: When was the last time he held a title? Oh, right! Last time he even fought for one, it was against his boy, Roman, and he choked Rollins out.

Or remember when Rollins last main-evented Mania? Oh wait, he hasn’t. But his wife, Becky, sure has! And there’s a trend here. Seems Rollins comes up second to Roman, to Becky, and this Saturday, he’ll be second to Riddle! Fans fire up for that one but Rollins is fired up. They each dare the other to throw hands but Cormier pops in via the titantron! Cormier says enough. We’ve watched you two whine, argue and complain for months. Enough! This behavior has been insane, we’re all tired of it. The parking lot, the arena, all around the world! For all the people wondering, yes, this is Daniel Cormier. He is one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time, he is THE Double Champ.

Matt, listen, bro. They go way back as UFC fighters. Rollins, Cormier has admired him from afar, ever since he won that first world title. But as the whole world is fed up, so is Cormier. Someone told them they’re in a Fight Pit, and Cormier’s down for that. He lives in the cage, he loves the cage. But there has to be a third man. Can’t be any ol’ ref, so WWE called ya boi, DC, and he will lay down the law to make sure only one of them makes it out of the pit and we put an end to this. That’s what Cormier plans to do. So no more yapping, go train hard and train smart, and we’ll see you both in Philly. Fans fire up for that, but Rollins flicks Riddle’s hat away. Who survives when it’s TIIIIIME?!

 

Candice LeRae comes across Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss & Asuka.

They all say hey and wish Candice luck against Dakota Kai. Bianca wants Candice to make sure she shows Damage Control what the Poison Pixie is made of. Candice thanks Bianca and vows to do just that. She heads to gorilla, will she take control against DMG CTRL?

 

The Miz is on the phone with Maryse.

The Hollywood A-Lister tries to get his “beautiful, gorgeous, sexy wife” to hear him out. It is being handled. This B List horror film ends tonight. This lowlife has broken into their home, attacked Miz while wearing a hockey uniform, and cost both Miz and Ciampa the US Championship. Where even IS Ciampa?! But Miz is not leaving until he gets assurances that something is being done about “you know who.” Nothing, and Miz means nothing, will ruin his birthday next week. Maryse presents: The Miz’s Birthday Bash, Live in Brooklyn! And there will be no unwanted surprise appearances from “He Who Shall Not Be Named.”

But speaking of, Dexter Lumis is creeping in from the back door! Someone calls to Miz and he storms over, narrowly avoiding Lumis’ grasp! Miz tells the staffer to shoo, he’s on the phone with his wife. Miz gets gushy with Maryse about saying bye, but Lumis is still lurking. Will the Tortured Artist ruin things despite all of Miz’s preparations?

 

Candice LeRae VS Dakota Kai w/ Damage Control!

Mrs. Wrestling, the Poison Pixie, came back with a strong win over the Almost SuperHero, and now she takes on one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! Will Candice take Dakota for a Wild Ride? Or will #CobraKai be immune to sting Candice first?

The bell rings and Candice circles with Dakota. They tie up, Dakota gets around and she shoves Candice. Dakota taunts Candice then uses ropes as a defense. Candice backs off, but Dakota rushes in to waistlock. Candice switches, Dakota hooks a leg to trip her, and runs. Candice ducks the boot, rolls Dakota up, TWO! Dakota swings, into a backslide! TWO, and Candice arm-drags Dakota down! Candice has an armlock and she grinds Dakota. Dakota endures, fights up, but Candice arm-drags her again. Dakota is frustrated but Candice keeps on the arm. Bayley & Iyo coach Dakota and she fights up.

Dakota powers Candice into a corner, goes side to side, but Candice dodges the boot to bump Dakota off buckles! Candice snapmares and NECK SNAPS to then jackknife! TWO but Candice DROPKICKS Dakota down! Dakota goes to the apron, fans rally but Dakota avoids the shoulder. Candice avoids the boot to smack Dakota off the corner! Dakota falls to the floor and crawls to the ramp. Candice builds speed, but Dakota hurries out of the way. Candice frowns but she WRECKS Dakota with a dropkick! Bayley protests but Candice springboards to CROSSBODY! Direct hit and Dakota is down while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Dakota has Candice in a motorcycle stretch. Candice fights up and turns around to arm-drag Dakota away! Dakota staggers up, Candice RAMS into her, then elbows her! Dakota runs back in to BOOT Candice down! Cover, TWO! Dakota is frustrated but she slaps Candice around. She sits Candice up for Kawada Kicks! Fans boo but Bayley cheers. Dakota dusts her boots off to then scuff Candice around. Bayley taunts Candice that she’s gonna call Baby Wrestling, little Quill Gargano, and tell her mom’s gonna be late getting home. Candice gets mad and pie faces Dakota, but Dakota SCORPION KICKS!

Dakota puts Candice in a corner, runs Around the World, but Candice BOOTS first! Fans fire up while both women are down! Dakota flails and checks her nose while fans rally. Candice stands, she ROCKS Dakota with a forearm! And again! And then CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS again! Candice backs Dakota down with fast hands! The ref counts and Candice lets off in the corner, but fans fire up! Candice runs in to back body block! And snapmare to a step-up SENTON! Cover, TWO! Bayley and Iyo keep cool as they coach Dakota. Dakota shoves Candice, Candice tilt-o-whirls into an IRON OCTOPUS!

Dakota endures and DMG CTRL freaks out! Dakota fights to a corner and she RAMS Candice into buckles! Dakota kicks Candice, then runs in, but into another BOOT! Candice climbs up but Dakota BOOTS her! Dakota climbs up, CLUBS away on Candice, then stands Candice up. Candice fights the superplex, fights back and slips under, but Dakota holds off the bomb! So Candice YANKS Dakota into the buckles! And then hits a HIGH ANGLE GERMAN! Fans fire up while DMG CTRL freaks out! Candice crawls after Dakota, fans rally behind her, but Iyo distracts the ref. Candice goes up but Bayley trips her up! Roll up from Dakota, Dakota wins!

Winner: Dakota Kai, by pinfall

DMG CTRL snags one away from Candice and Bayley is all fired up! But will Bayley be able to maintain control of the situation with her contract signing later tonight?

 

Johnny Gargano walks to gorilla.

Wait, is that Lumis sitting on a trunk, petting an unconscious Miz? Gargano looks back, and Lumis is gone! Gargano pokes Miz and it startles Miz awake. Miz has a picture of Lumis and Miz at a birthday party. Gargano knows that’s not good. Miz runs away and Gargano just chuckles, “Oh, Dexter.” Gargano continues to gorilla, will he have the last laugh against the tree trunk known as Otis?

 

DMG CTRL celebrates backstage.

Bayley says tag team champion or not, Dakota’s gonna give- Wait, Sarah walks in to congratulate Dakota. Obviously, this is why Bayley wants Kai & Sky in her corner for the Extreme Rules Ladder match. And speaking of, the Raw Women’s Championship match- Bayley stops Sarah there. It took her that long to realize why Bayley wants “weapons” like Dakota & Iyo on her side? Sarah’s just as dumb as Bianca! Bianca only just realized the importance of allies. But this won’t ruin Bayley’s mood, because she’s gonna do Bianca a favor tonight. It’ll just be her and Bianca, but for the contract signing only.

Bayley addresses Bianca by looking right at the camera. Tonight, it will just be the two of them. “But remember: you asked for this.” The Role Model is going to play fair and square for now, but is she just going to turn up the heat at Extreme Rules?

 

Johnny Gargano VS Otis w/ Chad Gable & Austin Theory!

Johnny Wrestling helped Kevin Owens and Drew McIntyre fight the Alpha Academy and the Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank Ever on SmackDown, and now things are 1v1! Will Master Gable’s Number One Guy crush Gargano’s Rebel Heart? Or will Otis have to take one #ForTheAcademy?

Theory joins commentary to talk down on Gargano but Gargano says he’s got his eyes on him. Gargano and Otis circle, Otis rushes in but Gargano gets around. Gargano throws hands, wrenches an arm, then drop toeholds, but Otis is way too stocky for that! Otis drags Gargano up, TOSSES him to a corner, but Gargano dodges to fire off more hands. The ref counts, Gargano climbs up and rains down fists. But Otis carries Gargano corner to corner to RAM him into the corner! Then he CLUBS Gargano down! Fans boo but Otis shouts, “For the Academy!” Gargano fires off hands but Otis shoves him. Gargano ducks ‘n’ dodges and RAMS Otis!

Otis stays up and comes back with the WRECKER ELBOW! “Who’s the man?!” Theory cheers Otis on and Otis goes back for Gargano. Otis drags Gargano up, bumps him off buckles, and CLUBS him over and over. Otis taunts Gargano, CHOKES Gargano on the ropes, and Theory says he loves it. Otis drags Gargano up, scoops him, and SLAMS him! Fans rally for Gargano but Otis looms over him. Otis drags Gargano up, gut wrenches him to a Canadian rack, and makes it a backbreaker rack! Gable and Theory high five, but Gargano endures and throws hands! Gargano gets free, goes to a corner, Otis runs in but into a BOOT!

Gargano elbows Otis away, then dodges! Otis POSTS himself! Gargano runs to LARIAT! Otis stays up, Gargano runs and LARIATS again! Nope, Otis is still up. Otis choke grips but Gargano ROLLING ELBOWS!

Otis bails out of the ring but Gargano builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Otis hits the desk! Theory is upset, Gargano LEAPS the desk to CLOBBER Theory! Gargano fires off hands on Theory and fans are loving it! Gargano hurries up to the apron to TORNADO DDT Otis to the floor! Fans fire up but Otis is getting up! Gable distracts the ref, Theory SMACKS Gargano with the briefcase! Otis hauls Gargano up for the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Cover, Otis wins!

Winner: Otis, by pinfall

Theory screwed Gargano over, but he goes after Gargano more! So do Gable and Otis! But here comes BRAUN!! The Monster of All Monsters CLOBBERS Otis at the ramp! Then he runs into the ring, but both Theory and Gable bail out! Braun slides out and he catches Gable, to TOSS him into the ring! Gable’s been taking credit for Braun’s career, will Braun take all the credit for ending Gable’s?

Braun Strowman VS Chad Gable w/ Otis & Austin Theory!

The bell rings, Braun sees Otis on the outside, and he TOSSES Gable onto Otis!! Fans are fired up with Braun and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Gable is in the ring, Braun dragging himself up from commentary. That was of course the doing of Otis during commercial, but that got Otis EJECTED! Gable goes out and stalks Braun. Braun stands up, Gable rushes in and KNEES Braun into the POST! Gable gets back in the ring, he lets the ring count climb, but Braun is stirring. Braun drags himself up at the barriers, staggers over, and he stumbles into the ring at 8 of 10. Gable CLUBS and KNEES away on Braun! The fans boo but Gable says, “A THANK YEW~!” Gable throws more hands, runs the ropes, but runs into a scoop! Gable kicks free, shoves and GERMAN SUPLEXES Braun!? Bridging cover, TWO!

Gable runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and dropkicks a leg out! Gable climbs up a corner, he leaps at Braun and MISSILE DROPKICKS!

Braun is down, Gable goes back up, and he MOONSAULTS, but has to land out as Braun moves! Braun BOOTS Gable down! The shirt comes off, the fans fire up, and Braun glares at Gable. Braun reels Gable in, lifts him up, MONSTER BOMB!! Cover, Braun wins!

Winner: Braun Strowman, by pinfall

The Monster of All Monsters puts away the Alpha Academy headmaster! But with the Nigerian Giant watching backstage, will Braun have to soon defend that title of alpha titan in the WWE?

 

Bobby Lashley finishes up with the trainer.

Lashley is mad but Kevin Patrick asks him about that blindside attack from Rollins. How is Lashley doing? Lashley is going to crush Rollins’ throat so we never have to hear that cackle again. And then, after Riddle beats Rollins in the Fight Pit, Lashley will finish Rollins off! Lashley will get Rollins next week on the season premiere, for the US Championship! No backing out, no excuses, no running away! Lashley gets Rollins in the ring to bounce him around like a pinball, then he’ll put Rollins in the Hurt Lock until he screams for mercy! Then Lashley will make Rollins pass out in the middle of the ring. That’s how Lashley feels. What will even be left of Rollins after this next week?

 

Corey Graves is in the ring.

He welcomes us all to this “historic moment.” There are ladders in the ring, but also chairs and the table for this contract signing. “It is the first-ever Ladder match for a women’s championship in WWE history.” So first, the challenger, Bayley. The Role Model makes her entrance solo, as promised. Then the Raw Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair. She is also solo, because she doesn’t need back-up to take on Bayley. Bianca and Bayley sit at the table and Corey says let’s not wait any longer. Let’s make this official with the contract. Bayley tells Bianca it’s just them, just like she asked. Is she okay? Does she feel safe?

Bayley feels great, really, despite not having her girls with her. But Bayley feels really good since DMG CTRL has done everything Bayley has said to a T. Her plan has been going really good and that clearly shakes Bianca’s confidence. But don’t worry about that, Bayley is doing this favor for her since Bianca’s dumb enough to accept a Ladder match for the title. But that’s fine, Bayley’s got her. Bayley signs her part of the contract and says, “Bianca, Bianca, Bianca. Look what your ego has gotten you into! I mean, I bet your ego makes you think that Bayley chose a ladder match because you KOD’d me on top of a ladder at Hell in a Cell.”

Or maybe Bianca thinks that Bayley has half the ego as Bianca and she wants to make history again by winning the first-ever women’s title ladder match. “But uh, ding dong, hello, here’s something for all you guys. It’s much bigger than that, okay? I think big picture here. The ladder is symbolic for my entire WWE career since the day I walked in. Unlike you, I’ve had to literally climb and climb and climb… *fake panting* And climb and climb and climb and try to the top. And in that process, I was you. Yeah, I was you, ponytail and all! You guys remember that, huh? Colorful sequins. And you see those little girls out there? That little girl I walked by on the ramp with the EST shirt, a Bianca Belair sign.

“You know what those signs use to say? Those signs used to say BAYLEY. They used to have headbands on. They used to put their ponytails to the side. But you know what happened, Bianca? Those signs changed. The T-shirts changed. And the cheers started to fade. They gave up on me, Bianca, and they stopped caring. And when they stopped caring, my whole career started spiraling. I started to fall further and further and further, and I had to do something to climb my way back to the top-” Bianca tells Bayley to shut up. Bianca signs her part, and it’s official. Corey thanks them both and wishes them both luck.

Bianca tells Bayley she just runs her mouth over and over again. Girl, UH-UH! Bayley has this chip on her shoulder that has absolutely nothing to do with Bianca. It might be really hard to see someone have everything you want, but comparison is the thief of joy. Bayley should never compare herself to Bianca, because she will never be Bianca, do it like Bianca or do it better than Bianca. Fans cheer that. Bianca says everything Bayley did didn’t work because Bayley was pretending to be someone she wasn’t. This is the real, authentic Bianca and that is why fans connect with her. Bayley didn’t “evolve,” she just became the real Bayley. And now she’s here showing us her real colors.

As far as her little plan, congrats, it took you a whole year to come up with a plan. But Bianca doesn’t need a plan, because she stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. Plus, does Bayley think she’s the only one that tried to surprise her at SummerSlam? You see how that worked out, right? But since Bayley likes plans, she can plan on still calling Bianca the Raw Women’s Champion after Extreme Rules. Well, we’ll see about that on Saturday, because DMG CTRL will disagree with that since they’ll be right by Bayley’s side. Actually, what’re they doing right now? What time is it? Because they were supposed to go get something to eat.

Oh no! Kai & Sky are attacking Alexa & Asuka! They already did something to Asuka’s leg and now they’re mugging Alexa! And then Bayley YANKS Bianca by her hair over the desk and she hammers away! Then she TOSSES Bianca back over the desk, to go after her more! Bianca bails out but can’t get away! Bayley whips but Bianca reverses and Bayley hits LED apron! Bianca bolts to the back, but Bayley laughs. Bianca finds Asuka and Alexa but the damage is done! The Empress of Tomorrow clutches her knee, will Bianca be down an ally at Extreme Rules? Alexa glares at the camera and tells DMG CTRL this is NOT over! Alexa VS Iyo, TONIGHT!!

 

Angelo Dawkins w/ Montez Ford VS Solo Sikoa w/ The Bloodline!

The Profits may be out of the tag team running while Ford’s foot heals, but can Dawkins unleash the Curse of Greatness? Or will the Street Champion of the Island sharpen his edge as he also prepares for Ricochet this Friday?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around in a deadlock but Dawkins powers Solo back. Solo turns things around to put Dawkins in the corner, but he lets off as the ref counts. Dawkins ROCKS Solo with uppercuts and haymakers but Solo ROCKS him back! Solo CHOPS Dawkins in the corner, ROCKS him again, then whips corner to corner. Dawkins goes up and over and keeps moving but Solo RAMS him! Dawkins RAMS Solo back, then hurdles over. Solo shoves, Dawkins handsprings and DROPKICKS Solo down! Ford fires up, Solo bails out and is furious! Sami tries to cool Solo off but Solo rushes in, but Dawkins DECKS him!

Solo gets up in a fury and he grabs a chair! This is just like SmackDown! Sami slows Solo and says not to give Dawkins a win like this. Jey tells Sami to back of, Solo’s his brother. Jey says Solo’s good, he’s got this. The Bloodline lets cooler heads prevail while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Solo has Dawkins down with a neck wrench. Dawkins fights up so Solo rains down HEADBUTTS! Solo clamps on the shoulder claw but Dawkins still endures. Fans rally and Dawkins fights up. Dawkins pries free of the hold to throw big body shots and forearms! Dawkins whips, Solo reverses and then SAMOAN DROPS on the rebound! The Bloodline holds up the fingers, #WeTheOnes, and Solo snarls as he stares at Dawkins. Fans rally for Dawkins but Solo throws haymakers! Dawkins wobbles on spaghetti legs, but Solo whips him for another SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Dawkins survives and Solo is annoyed.

Sami and the Usos argue the count but Ford defends that was two. Solo taunts Dawkins, “This is it? This is who you’ve got for me?” Solo steps to Dawkins in the corner, gets in Dawkins’ face, and says, “They call me the Enforcer!” Solo whips Dawkins hard into the corner! Dawkins falls to the mat and writhes. The Bloodline loves this as Solo looms over Dawkins. Solo drags Dawkins up to clamp that claw on again! Dawkins still endures, fans rally up again, and Dawkins fights against the claw. Dawkins throws elbows but Solo throws a knee! Then clinches for a BELLY2BELLY! Solo soaks up the heat as his brothers hold up the fingers.

Sami coaches Solo to keep on Dawkins, to show no mercy. Dawkins gets to a corner and Solo aims from the other. Solo powers up, “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” HIP ATTACK!! Dawkins is dazed and Solo looks at him flounder. Ford coaches Dawkins to dig deep and fight, but Solo aims again. “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” HIP- ENZIGURI from Dawkins!! Ford and St. Paul are thunderous as Solo and Dawkins are both down! Dawkins and Solo rise, Dawkins stands first, and he LARIATS Solo! And again! Solo HEADBUTTS! Solo whips, Dawkins hurdles and FLYING UPPERCUTS! Fans fire up and Solo goes to a corner, CYCLONE SPLASH and ENZIGURI from Dawkins!

Dawkins reels Solo in, for the SILENCER! Cover, TWO!! Sami gets on the apron, but then Jey tells him to get down? Jey says Solo can handle this, Uce! This all distracts Dawkins either way, Solo SUPERKICKS! But now the ref doesn’t see the cover! The ref hurries, TWO!! Solo is mad at Sami and Jey! They get down, Dawkins rolls Solo! TWO!! Dawkins dodges, and he POUNCES Solo out! Sami hurries to Solo’s side to check him and coach him, but Jey pulls Sami off Solo. Jey has his brother, but then Jimmy wants everyone to just cool off. Jey and Sami argue, Dawkins FLIES! Down go the Usos! Dawkins puts Solo in, Sami yells at him about the Usos!

Dawkins DECKS Sami! But Dawkins gets in for Solo to WHEEL KCIK! And then SPINNING SOLO!! Cover, Solo wins!

Winner: Solo Sikoa, by pinfall

In the end, the Bloodline made it work! Solo gets the win and winning fixes everything. At least, it should. Are the problems between Sami and Jey going to persist? Will it end up costing the Bloodline big time down the line?

 

Theory talks with Otis backstage.

Theory is proud of Otis for doing exactly what he was supposed to in that ring. Wait, where’s Gable? Otis says hold on. He drags Gable up. Gable says he almost had Braun. Theory says Gable did good. But hey, they’re not done with Gargano. Next week, on the season premiere of Raw, Theory himself will take on Gargano, and Theory vows to put Gargano down. A-Town Down! Will the Youngest Mr. MITB Ever finally have his way and be rid of Johnny Wrestling?

 

Edge speaks!

“This version of Edge that you’ve seen since I’ve come back is pretty much Adam. More or less, the veil of character has been dropped, and I’ve been pretty transparent since I’ve come back. At 37 years old, I was told that I had to retire, forced to retire, I had no choice. Until I decided to make it a choice. Because I can’t quit. The lousy part is, by the time that choice became a reality, I was 46, and it was difficult. And it’s progressively become more and more difficult. Now I’m not looking for sympathy. It’s my choice. This is my freakin’ dream gig, I love this.

“But what’s become… harder… is the fact that it’s not just taking a toll on me now. It’s taking a toll on my entire family. And I didn’t have this family before. It’s harder to hide it from the girls when they can hear me coming down the stairs like a symphony of bones cracking in the morning. But maybe even more difficult is seeing the… doubt… Or maybe even the fear in Beth’s eyes. Because she wants her husband to come out of this whole, and I think she’s afraid that ship has already sailed. And maybe I’m… insane? Maybe I’m too selfish? Maybe I’m too damn stubborn, but those are all things that you need in order to succeed at the level that I’ve succeeded at this business. I can’t apologize for that.

“But that brings me to Judgement Day. I gotta give ’em credit. They’ve made it more difficult. No matter how many times I beat ’em, they always come back. They always pick me apart, knock me down, and it’s harder and harder to put the pieces back together to come back. But I do. And I understand that Rey wants to distance himself from this because of Dominik, I get it. And it’s my fault the Judgement Day even exists. So I know what I have to do, and my back’s against the wall. You can ask Foley, you can ask Taker, you can ask Cena, you can ask Orton, I come out swinging or headbutting or whatever the hell else I have to do to be a one man gang!

“So Finn, in an I Quit Match at Extreme Rules, you are facing something, someone that you’ve never faced before and you can’t hurt me enough. All four of can’t hurt me enough to make me say, ‘I Quit.’ You cannot physically hurt me enough to make me say, ‘I Quit.’ I hope you’re all ready for a war, because I damn sure am.” The Rated R Superstar has given his ultimatum, will the Judgement Day be the ones facing their judgement day?

 

Alexa Bliss w/ Bianca Belair VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control!

The Five Foot Fury is furious over what Bayley’s buddies did to the Empress of Tomorrow. Alexa’s been trying to find that spark to return to her old self, will this be just the thing she needs? Or will the Evil Genius have the same trick up her proverbial sleeve as Dakota did earlier tonight?

Raw returns and DMG CTRL make their entrance. The bell rings and the two rush in! Iyo DROPKICKS Alexa, fires off hands and knees, then whips. Alexa blocks, fires off forearm after forearm on Iyo, but Iyo shoves back. Alexa runs Iyo over, and again! And then hits a THESZ PRESS! Alexa rains down hands, then hits another THESZ PRESS! More fast hands, and then Alexa drags Iyo up. Alexa bumps Iyo off buckles, stomps a mudhole, then lets off. Iyo dodges the return, holds a leg and avoids the slaps to DRAGON SCREW! Alexa clutches her leg but Iyo stomps away on it! Iyo drops knees on the knee!

Kai & Bayley cheer and Iyo CHOPS Alexa. Alexa blocks the punch to ROCK, ROCK and SHOTGUN Iyo! Fans fire up and Alexa stands on Iyo at the ropes for a SKATEBOARD STOMP! The ref counts, Alexa lets off but runs in to KNEE Iyo against the ropes! Alexa then YANKS the ropes to bring Iyo down, and she drops INSULT2INJURY! Cover, TWO! Iyo is showing the toughness of a decorated champion, but Alexa snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Alexa drags Iyo up, dodges the Shotei, but Iyo uses the waistlock to HOTSHOT Alexa! Then a DRIVE- NO, Alexa avoids the dropkick! But Iyo avoids a wrecking ball dropkick to SHOTGUN Alexa again!

DMG CTRL are fired up and Alexa is down while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once again and Alexa JAWBREAKERS then CLOBBERS Iyo! And again! Then mule kicks, but Iyo wrenches out of the DDT. Alexa reverses that to hit an STO! Alexa KNEES Iyo down, covers, TWO! Bayley & Kai coach Iyo but Alexa drags her up. Alexa whips but Iyo holds ropes to BOOT back! Iyo then spins Alexa around, underhooks, TIGER BACKBREAKER! Alexa goes to a corner but Iyo runs in, SHINKANSEN! Iyo then steps on Alexa to go up top and OVER THE MOON- FLOP! Alexa shows her resilience as a decorated champion, and she hits a DDT! Alexa drags Iyo into a drop zone and now she goes to the corner!

Fans fire up as Alexa climbs up, for TWISTED BLISS! But Bayley distracts the ref! Bianca yanks Bayley out to fire off! But Dakota joins in, Bianca gets 2v1! And sent into steel steps! But Alexa CANNONBALLS them both down! Alexa hurries back and climbs up again! But a SHOTEI stops her! Iyo then tucks Alexa for an AIR RAID CRASH! Iyo goes back up fast, for OVER THE MOONSAULT! Cover, Iyo wins!

Winner: Iyo Sky, by pinfall

DMG CTRL with another assist! They sweep the night, working together as a well-oiled machine. But then they mug Alexa! Asuka can’t help with her busted leg, and Kai & Sky fetch a ladder! Bayley beats down on Alexa, but Bianca gets in to fire off on Bayley! Kai & Sky RAM Bianca down with the ladder! And then Iyo keeps Alexa down, but wait! Asuka is still hobbling out here? On one good leg, she has a kendo stick to SMACK Dakota! But Iyo WRECKS Asuka with the ladder! Then Kai & Sky SLAM the ladder on Asuka! They keep it on top of her, and then bring it around to open it up. Bayley drags Alexa over to put her inside the ladder!

Bayley tried doing this to Shotzi on Friday, Kai & Sky DOUBLE BOOT the ladder to crush Alexa!! Fans boo as Bayley tells Asuka to stay out of her business. Kai & Sky stand the ladder up for her, and Bayley soaks up the heat as she says DMG CTRL are going to take over! Bayley drags Bianca up, stands her in the corner, and Dakota runs Around the World to BOOT Bianca down! Bayley drags Bianca back up by her ponytail and then hooks her up, ROSE PLANT! Bayley drags Alexa up, ROSE PLANT! Kai & Sky stand the ladder over Bianca and Bayley brings the Raw Women’s Championship belt up with her to the top.

Fans boo as DMG CTRL stands over their enemies, but will they be on top of the WWE after this Saturday? Or can Bianca prove she’s the toughEST and bounce back from this beating to beat Bayley back?

AEW Elevation Coverage

The Peacock and his Boys defends their gold!

AEW Dark: Elevation features the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions! But will Dalton Castle & The Tate Twins still reign in Philadelphia?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Skye Blue VS Trish Adora; wins.
  • Lance Archer VS Cheeseburger; wins.
  • Abadon VS Abby Jane; wins.
  • ROH Six Man Tag Team Championships: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Primal Fear; win(s) and
  • Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Gia Scott & Leon St. Giovanni; win.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tracy Williams; wins.
  • The Lucha Brothers w/Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Deppen & Dante Martin; win.
  • 8 Man Tag: Best Friends VS The Factory; win(s).

QUICK NOTES

A really good line-up here, with the big attraction being Dalton & The Boys taking on Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder, aka Primal Fear. That’ll be a solid match that I will cover, but I don’t see the champions losing the titles. Good to see Cheeseburger but he’s gonna get eaten alive by Archer. And I like that we’re getting a full faction showdown of Best Friends VS The Factory. That’ll be a big win for Best Friends and they’ll have momentum going after Death Triangle for that feud.
