NXT Women’s Championship #1 Contender Fatal 4 Way: Mia Yim VS Bianca Belair VS Io Shirai VS Candice LeRae!

Four of the best compete for a second chance at the champion, Shayna Baszler! Will the animosity between Head Baddie in Charge and EST reignite? Or will it pale in comparison to what the Evil Genius and Mrs. Wrestling have brewing between them?

Candice wants right at Io but the ref keeps the peace, until the bell rings! Then Candice and Io brawl while Mia and Bianca do the same! Candice backs Io down while Bianca throws Mia out. Candice then runs, but gets run over by Bianca! Bianca scoops Candice up and into a military press! She drops Candice hard, then handsprings to keep Io out, and moonsault on Candice! Cover but Mia break sit fast. Mia jumps on for a guillotine but Bianca powers out to a suplex! Cover, but Io breaks that! Io has Bianca by her hair, and whips, but Bianca reverses, so Io uses that to Tiger Feint Mia off the ropes! Io blocks and counter punches Bianca, then dodges Candice to mule kick her away! Springboard missile dropkick to Bianca! Cover, TWO! Io keeps her cool as she drags Bianca around.

Bianca endures Io’s cravat but Mia comes in to shove Bianca into Io. Then she uses Io for the kickstart into a tornado DDT on Bianca! Cover, but Candice returns to break it! Candice throws hands and CHOPS on Mia while Io and Bianca bail out. Candice fires off on Mia,t hen runs in for a big back elbow! Candice slips out to facebust Io on the apron! But Bianca scoops and TOSSES Candice to the ramp! Bianca drags Candice up but Mia DIVES onto them both! Fans rally for “NXT!” as Io climbs! ASAI onto Mia and Candice! All four women are down on the outside and Full Sail fires up as we go to break!

NXT returns with all four women concentrated on one corner. Bianca is up and resisting Mia’s superplex, but Io climbs on to try and German Suplex Mia! Candice crawls over to get up under Io! TOWER OF DOOM!! German Superplex Powerbomb combination! Full Sail is thunderous as all four women are down again! Fans rally up as the four women slowly rise.

For the first time, Candice gets a chance at that title! And best of all, it’ll be a revenge match that’s been a long time coming! Will Mrs. Wrestling finally be Candice Champion?

But to ruin the celebration, Shayna and the Horsewomen walk out to mockingly applaud and congratulate Candice. Shayna holds up the title, then stares Candice down. Candice doesn’t back away, despite being surrounded. Will Candice be able to dethrone the Queen of Spades despite the stacked deck?


Adam Cole speaks.

“There’s only one man who deserves to hold the gold. And that man…” is Adam Cole BAYBAY! That is undisputed. But will Roderick Strong fulfill Cole’s prophecy here tonight?


NXT reviews the truly titanic match between Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic.

The Limitless and the Colossus clashed in a truly superhuman super heavyweight rematch, but that match isn’t even the end! They will finally have round three next week!


NXT reviews what led to tonight’s Street Fight.

The Northern Ireland Nightmare made his return to NXT targeting the King of Bro Style. But that brawl wasn’t enough for either man. A fight on a TakeOver and a fight all over Full Sail was just the beginning, but who survives when there are no rules holding them back?


Sean Maluta VS Cameron Grimes!

The Unwanted Savage returns from his Evolution to test himself on NXT’s live debut. But he has to test himself against a Breakout Tournament finalist in the technical savage! Will Maluta have his own breakout here tonight? Or will the #CountryCaveman grind him down to the bone?

The bell rings and Maluta runs at Grimes, but gets the double stomps!! Grimes covers, Grimes wins!!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

Record setting and mind blowing! Clearly Maluta is a million years too early to beat this modern day savage. Will Grimes run through the rest of the roster in his hunt for a second chance?


The Experience has received a Strong message.

To get the attention of The Velveteen Dream, the Savior of the Backbreaker set the beloved Velveteen Couch ablaze! Dream says that if Roderick Strong thinks Dream’s North American Championship reign is going to go up in flames, Strong is lying to himself. Strong wants to see if Dream is ready for a 1v1 experience. Dream quotes Hunger Games: If the Dream burns, Strong will burn with him. #DreamOver, but will the Purple Reign make it through the fire and the flames?


Damian Priest will return.

“This is the stage where my name lives forever.” When will we see the Archer of Infamy take aim at glory?


NXT North American Championship: The Velveteen Dream VS Roderick Strong!

The Undisputed Era’s prophecy of gold is one step away from being fulfilled! The Experience could not ignore the Savior of the Backbreaker burning his beloved Velveteen Couch, but he will be damned if his most precious possession is taken so easily. Will this be the night the Purple Reign ends?

Switch to the WWE Network for the rest of this first-ever TWO HOUR NXT!

This second hour continues right where the first left off: the Undisputed Era celebrates making their prophecy a reality! The Dream’s reign is over, but is THE Undisputed Era truly beginning?


NXT makes a HUGE announcement for the Women’s Championship!

After Candice LeRae’s incredible victory earlier tonight, and the heated stare down between her and Shayna Baszler, we will see these two face off for the title! Will the Queen of Spades keep her throne in this new chapter of NXT? Or does a new chapter bring about a new champion?


Pete Dunne VS Arturo Ruas!

The Bruiserweight continues in his return to NXT in pursuit of making even more history than he already has. But the battle-tested Brazilian is ready to test Dunne, what will we get out of both men on this already incredible night?

The bell rings and Dunne circles with Ruas. They feel out the other as fans rally. Ruas moves with the capoeria stance, then gets a leg! He gets Dunne down but Dunne blocks with his legs. Dunne facelocks and goes around with Ruas to go around for a half nelson. Ruas slips out to get a waistlock but Dunne turns around. They end up on the ropes and Dunne lets off.

The Bruiserweight breaks down another opponent, and is rising in the ranks of NXT! And he just shrugs like it’s no big deal. But will Dunne do even more damage on his way towards new titles?


Dakota Kai is coming back!

The captain of Team Kick has recovered from her injuries, and she’s ready to kick things up a notch! Can Kai make up for lost time as she returns to NXT?


Aliyah w/ Vanessa Borne VS Xia Li!

The bougie half of this snobbish alliance battles the spicy martial artist. Both women look to make their own impacts in the NXT Women’s Division, but who will really be the “lower” ones on the ladder?

The bell rings and Xia ties up with Aliyah. Xia headlocks, but Aliyah powers out. Xia headstands then goes to the apron. Aliyah runs in but gets kicks! Xia rolls in and dropkicks Aliyah down!

Now that was spicy! Will Xia only grow stronger as NXT enters its new era?


Kushida VS Denzel Dejournette!

The Time-Splitter made a big impact on 205 Live, now he’s here to make NXT’s new chapter even better! Will the Super Junior keep rolling and rising in the ranks?

But before Kushida can make his entrance, IMPERIUM is here?! Alexander Wolfe leads the way from the crowd as he, Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner flank the ring! And they go right at Denzel! He’s 3v1 against them, and gets a German Suplex from Wolfe! Fans chant, “We Want Walter!” but Aichner trash talks in Italian while Barthel climbs up. Aichner lifts, Barthel leaps, EuroUpper Bomb! Wolfe and Aichner kick Denzel out as fans asks, “Where is Walter?” Imperium stands together, as WALTER appears! The Ring General joins his soldiers in the ring, and Full Sail is losing their minds! Walter takes to the mic to say, “We are Imperium! And to us, this mat is sacred!” Imperium is here to restore the honor and tradition of this sport. From this day forth, those who disrespect that tradition will answer to him.

But here comes a man to defy Walter already! Kushida has a mic to say, “This is MY time. Now your time belongs to me.” Wolfe rushes Kushida but get a kick! Barthel gets tossed out and Aichner gets a boot! But Walter grabs Kushida for a sleeper hold and toss! Walter drags Kushida up but Kushida pops out of his jacket to calf kick Walter! Kushida slips away from Imperium, and says he wants Walter! William Regal and Johnny Saint will have to discuss this GM to GM, but how could they say no to such an international instant classic?


WWE Cruiserweight Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Oney Lorcan VS Lio Rush!

The Boston Brawler got cheated a second chance at the title by Drew Gulak himself, but perhaps the third time is the charm. Meanwhile, the Man of the Hour is back in action after a bit of a time-out, as it were. Which young and hungry Cruiserweight will get a golden opportunity to defy the Law of 205 Live?

The bell rings and fans “Welcome Back!” Rush. But then Lorcan blasts him with an uppercut, and then a back elbow, and then another! Oney keeps moving, BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Lio lives but Lorcan powers up again. Fans rally up as Lorcan grabs Lio. Half ‘n’ Half gets an arm-drag, and Lio handspring kicks Lorcan away. Then he DIVES! Lio keeps moving, and DIVES again! But he won’t stop, he DIVES for the hat trick! Fans fire up with the faster than a hiccup piece of Gold, and he puts Lorcan back in the ring. Lorcan goes to a corner and Lio hits a fast forearm smash. Lio fires more, then whips. Lorcan reverses but Lio goes up and over. Things speed up, which is saying something, and Lio huricanranas Lorcan, to then Matrix, mule kick and enziguri! Cover, TWO! Fans are fired up for this showdown as Lio looms over Lorcan. Lio throws kicks a la the A-Lister, or perhaps the Planet’s Champion.

But then Lorcan catches one to dragons crew Lio! Lorcan CHOPS Lio in the corner, then CHOPS again! Lorcan whips corner to corner and Lio hits so hard, he ends up half outside! Lorcan EuroUppers Lio until he flops back onto the mat. Lorcan drags Lio up and suplexes him to hang him out on the ropes. And then another EuroUpper sends Lio tumbling down! Fans cheer as Lorcan waits for Lio. Lio stirs as the ring count begins, and stands at 4. Lio flounders to the apron and in at 5. Lorcan drags Lio up with a gut wrench and then carries him around, before hitting a sit-out powerbomb! Cover, TWO! Lio lives but Lorcan keeps his focus. Lorcan looms but Lio throws body shots. Lorcan welcomes the punches as Lio continues. Lio chops but Lorcan gets Lio right in a Half Crab!

Fans duel as Lio endures. Lio powers up and turns, but Lorcan holds tight. Lio still slips around and kicks with his free leg. Lorcan lets go and Lio stands, but Lorcan CHOPS him again! Lio flops against ropes but Lorcan brings him up for a fast scoop slam! Cover, TWO! Lorcan grimaces as Lio checks his leg. Fans duel again as Lorcan circles Lio. Lorcan whips Lio and CHOPS him again! Lio falls back but Lorcan won’t let up. Lorcan brings Lio up, Lio fights back, but Lorcan CHOPS him again. Lorcan whips but Lio rebounds to a STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Lorcan lives and Lio can’t believe it! Fans argue “That was Three!” but Lio just drags Lorcan to a drop zone. Lio hobbles up and climbs to the top rope. Lio aims, leaps, but has to land on his feet as Lorcan dodges. The leg jams, Lorcan lifts, but Lio fights out. Lio’s leg slows him down and Lorcan kicks and boots him! Lorcan lifts, POWERBOMB! Half Crab again!

Lio endures as Lorcan sits deep! Fans duel, Lio turns over and pushes Lorcan away. Lio mule kicks, but his heel kick gets caught into another Half Crab! Lorcan sits deep, fans duel, and Lio drags himself, only for Lorcan to drag him away! STF! Lio is trapped, Lio is fading, but gets a second wind! Lorcan keeps it as a normal crossface, but fans chant “Fight, Lio, Fight!” Lio reaches and gets the ropebreak with a leg! Lorcan lets go but feels a bit frustrated. Lorcan powers up and prepares his hand like a weapon. He glares at Lio as Lio drags himself up. Lorcan grabs Lio by his face, but Lio avoids the slap! Lio lights Lorcan up with fast palm strikes of his own! Forearm, but the back hand misses. Lorcan shoves, blocks the boot, Lio SLAPS Lorcan! Now the Fury of 205 Live is unleashed! He SLAPS and SLAPS and SLAPS Lio! Lio wobbles, but gets Lorcan in a SPANISH FLY!! Fans are loving this as Lio heads up top again! Dragon’s Call splash! Cover, Lio wins!!

Winner: Lio Rush, by pinfall; NEW #1 Contender to the Cruiserweight Championship

Don’t call it a comeback, Lio’s been doing this for years! But as much as he toughed it out tonight, will Lio have a piece of gold of his own?


Street Fight: Killian Dain VS Matt Riddle!

The Nightmare returned to NXT out of nowhere, to take the fight to the Original Bro. But not even a senton crashing them both through the stage was enough for Beast or Bro. And now, things have escalated to this very match! What happens when there is nothing holding these two back from breaking each other?

The bell rings just moments before Dain hits Riddle with a shotgun dropkick! Dain stomps away on Riddle as they go around the ring, then hauls him up for a fireman’s carry. Riddle slips out and hits a German Suplex! But Dain is right up, so Riddle throws him with an Exploder! Fans rally but the Broton gets knees! Dain slips out and tosses off his vest before going to fetch something from under the ring. He has a kendo stick, but Riddle counters that to a Pele! Riddle fires up now and uses the kendo stick to SMACK Dain! Dain is reeling but Riddle runs over. Dain tosses Riddle into the crowd! The kendo stick is a souvenir, but Dain takes it back to SMACK Riddle again! “You want a senton?!” Dain drops one on Riddle!

Now they end up going behind the curtain, and Dain rains down rights. Riddle chops and punches back, but Dain throws him into a door! Dain opens that door, the Forgotten Sons make a cameo, and Dain swings the door closed at Riddle! But Riddle holds it off with all his might! Riddle kicks Dain then pushes him through. The Forgotten Sons cheer this fight on as the two end up going outside. NXT crew and other superstars are seeing this as Dain TOSSES Riddle into the truck trailer! Riddle founders and Dain clubs him towards the picnic tables. Walter is surprised this fight has come around as Riddle waistlocks Dain. Riddle wristlock ripcords Dain for a Bro Trigger! Dain topples into the table and that sets Walter off! Walter goes after Riddle!! The rest of Imperium help mug Riddle, but the Street Profits save the Bro! The Forgotten Sons get their shots in, but even Sean Maluta, Danny Burch, Raul Mendoza, Angel Garza, Babatunde, and Pete Dunne spill into the fray! It is CHAOS backstage!

Riddle fights off Jaxson Ryker, but then Dain stalks up behind them both. Dain throws Ryker while Riddle gets away. Dain goes after Riddle and they brawl back towards ringside. Full Sail is loving this as Riddle kicks Dain. But that brawl is spilling over into the arena! Fans are loving it all! Riddle and Dain end up back in the ring, and Riddle SPEARS Dain! Security jumps in to stop the actual competitors? They should be going after the chaotic mess outside! But Riddle roundhouses and German Suplexes the guards off of him! Chase Parker and Matt Martel go after Dain, but Dain powers them away. Dain headbutts Mansoor and tosses Ryker again, Imperium goes after Riddle, and everyone else just brawls as they please! Dain does his best to get back at Riddle, but Aichner drags Riddle out of the ring. Dain clears the ring while a cluster has formed at the ramp. So Dain decides to FLY!! Big Damo bowls everyone over! Full Sail loses its mind as everyone around is down for the count! If this is just the start to NXT’s new chapter, what madness is in store for the WWE Universe next?



My Thoughts:

What an incredible night for NXT! Not even being split in half from USA Network on television to the WWE Network online affected the flow of things. Two hours of NXT is quite literally like getting two episodes in a row, and that’s just a good thing no matter how you look at it. Triple H gave us an awesome introduction, and it was clear that the Full Sail from the prerecorded episodes translates directly to being live. Even the filler in these two hours was great! Well, maybe not Grimes VS Maluta, that was the nastiest squash match ever. But the shock factor was still good for Grimes, he’ll surely get more play as NXT as a whole adjusts. Aliyah VS Xia was great, and I was surprised to see Xia win clean when Vanessa was right there. But that’s a great sign for Xia Li, she might be rising up slowly but surely.

Dunne VS Ruas was a great match, Ruas is getting great showings even in defeat. And of course, Dunne is going strong as I assume he’ll be going after Roddy Strong soon. Dream VS Strong was incredible, even with the Undisputed Era interfering. It was classic Undisputed Era to do that, too, and of course it helps bring about their goal of all having gold. Now the major appeal for NXT will be to see how long the Undisputed Era remains golden. Especially with another foursome deciding to crossover as Imperium attacks and meddles with Kushida’s schedule. Kushida VS Walter is a dream match-up only a few probably even thought of, and now it can happen with NXT! At the same time, is it too much to think we could get WarGames III with Undisputed Era VS Imperium for complete dominance between both NXT brands? Not that all titles have to be even in the match at this point, it would just be about seeing who is the undisputed best faction in NXT today.

The Cruiserweight #1 contender’s match being here is both a great move to give us even more great content in the second hour, but also an indicator that perhaps 205 Live as a show might end and the Cruiserweight Division as we know it becomes part of NXT. There has already been great crossover between brands as superstars like Kushida, Angel Garza and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott have appeared on 205 Live, and moving the Cruiserweight title to a TakeOver would actually give those matches the time they deserve. If Lorcan VS Lio was this great, I can’t wait to see Gulak VS Lio in that clash of styles.

And I already sense what WWE is doing making a huge Women’s Championship match for the October 2nd episode <cough> AEW TNT premiere </cough> but Candice winning the Fatal 4 Way was amazing, and we finally get to circle back to her story with Shayna Baszler from almost a year ago. One way to get some buzz while countering AEW is to crown a new Women’s Champion just as AEW is planning to. Plus, who better to finally give Shayna some comeuppance than the legitimately beloved Candice Wrestling? Similarly, that is why Dijakovic VS Lee III is happening on October 2nd, so that fans will feel torn about seeing how that rivalry finishes up compared to things building on AEW’s side. The biggest surprise tonight might’ve been how Riddle VS Dain turned into just the most insane brawling segment NXT has ever given us. Riddle VS Dain before that was great, and then it was incredible to see so many seemingly random superstars get involved with that fight. The fact they haven’t let Riddle and Dain settle things for sure is a sign this might build all the way to WarGames III for an amazing grudge match to open the show to really fire fans up.

My Score: 9/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Match Ratings & Results: 3.23.2023

The Go Home to Sacrifice! PPV this week, Mania weekend special next week! Fun times for Impact!



It’s the Go Home to Sacrifice! I think there’s definitely more than a 33 1/3% chance that I’ll at least tolerate the episode. But with all of the fun pairings with Sacrifice participants we get the potential for a ton of story beats. We also might get a clearer picture of whatever the endgame is for The Design (doubtful though).

With all that, let’s hop into the show and kick off with how Kenny King and Eddie Edwards are exactly feeling about their Frankenstein problem.


  • The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin): Kushida wins via Hoverboard Lock – *** 1/4
  • Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo: Deonna wins via Crucifix Bomb – ** 1/4
  • Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James: Bully wins via Piledriver – ** 1/4
  • Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose: Myers wins via Roster Cut – ** 1/2



The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin)

Well Kushida does enjoy mixing it up with Heavyweights…and he starts against Kon. Kushida tries to chop down the tree, gets stifled, Shelley tags in to try and assist but they both meet the brick wall of Kon. Kon tags in Deaner and Shelley is getting worked over. Blind tag from Sabin, Deaner gets spun around and kicked in the face for a quick near fall.

All six mix it up a bit before Time Machine gets the best of it, they post Angels in the corner, Hesitation Dropkick from Sabin while Angels is retrained and we get a quick tag bringing Shelley back in to work over Angels left arm. I guess you can see they made him a…one winged angel – okay no more FF7 references. I feel dirty. Kushida lays in the grounded Bow and Arrow Liger Style, and Angels is just get rocked.

Eventually Angels manages to get away from Sabin and tag in Deaner, then The Design start quick tags and stomping away on Sabin in their corner. The Design tries to set up a tandem move, Sabin manages to escape and tag in Kushida. Hot tag with a few quick spots, Running Crossbody, Pele Kick, and then Shelley comes in. They go for some Time Splitters action but Angels interrupts it, so he receives the Time Splitters tandem offense of the PK to the Arm and Kon stunned on the apron eating a Back Handspring Kick, big Dive from Kushida puts an exclamation point on the Time Machine momentum.

Commercial break, we come back to Kushida and Shelley going for the Enzuigiri/Shotei combination, but Deaner moves and Shelley kicks Kushida. Angels gets tagged in and we see The Design put some stuff together. After a Spine Buster/Frog Splash combo, they set up a Double Doomsday and finally the MCMG portion of Time Machine come in for the save. Things start breaking down into signature spams, Angels looks to have the advantage until her stumbles just a little and the triple team starts.

They look for Outatime, but Deaner breaks it up, then Callihan slides in to just protect Deaner. He even stands there and asks the Guns to hit him. So Callihan gets rocked and Kushida flies in with the Hoverboard Lock for the win.

There was a vignette for The Coven, which checks that weird IMPACT spin since they love to play in the Shadow Realm. Not bad, just not work showing in the article.

JESUS H CHRIST – they are rebranding Raj Singh as Champagne Singh? I hope this is a short lived attempt at relevance, because he is talentless. Raj was the worst part of the Desi Hit Squad and somehow he’s stuck around the longest. I don’t get it…he’s cringe, can’t cut a promo and wrestles like trash. 

Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo

Deonna takes the offense right to Savannah, which is dumb; but Deonna does love to be the female Minoru Suzuki. By that I mean, just fighting the opponents fight for a little bit until the gameplan eventually kicks in. So it looks dumb, but let’s see if it continues to be dumb.

The match has been fairly basic, but not awful, hence why its hard for me to really highlight anything. Savannah hits some nice power moves, Jai and Gisele tend to jaw and be petty distractions but never physically get involved. Deonna tries to fire up with a few quick Chops, but Savannah puts the brakes to the that and hits a great Snap Suplex. Deonna absorbs some offense, tries to use a little bit of join manipulation and momentum to give herself a few openings. Savannah stops Deonna, goes for a Backbreaker, but Deonna counters.

Deonna runs the ropes, hits a few big Knee Lifts, Russian Leg Sweep, float over, Fujiwara…but Savannah grabs the ropes. Savannah stalls Deonna’s offense attempts, catches her with a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex Hold for 2. Full Nelson Slam attempt, Deonna drops down, rolls through, tries to use the ropes to her advantage, but Gisele and Jai finally makes their presence really felt. Deonna hits the ropes, Jai grabs her, Savannah swings, misses Deonna and wipes out Jai, Gisele eats a Pump Kick from Deonna. Deonna flies through the attempts slam, Crucifix Bomb from Deonna, and Deonna gets the pinfall.

Post match 3 on 1 beatdown begins! Deonna has no friends left, so she eats a Full Nelson Bomb and Denouement, and she’s left laying. 

Flashback Moment: Sacrifice 2010, Team 3D vs Beer Money vs MCMG, #1 Contender for the TNA Tag Team Championship Match

Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James

Dreamer and Bully circle a little, Bully tries to take a swipe at Mickie and then goads her to tag in. Bully keeps talking crap but Masha demands to be tagged in. So Masha and Mickie start off, while Mickie is trying to keep her eyes peeled for Bully while getting the best of Masha early after a Thesz Press, Sole But, Flapjack, Kip Up. But Mickie allows herself to be distracted a little, Masha returns the Sole Butt and clocks Mickie to drop her and tag in Bully. Bully talks too long before the Elbow Drop, so Mickie rolls away and Dreamer tags in. So the babyfaces are getting the best of the early going until Bully grabs Mickie’s hair as she runs the ropes while the ref is distracted.

Bully cheap shots Dreamer, tries to grab the Kendo Stick and threaten Mickie but the referee stops him. Bully starts man handling Mickie, tags Masha back in and Masha is literally whipping her around by her hair. Same time Lariats give Mickie the chance to tag out, simultaneous tags on the guys and Dreamer is doing…as hot of a tag as he can. 10 Count Punches, Bites his head, Cutter, but Masha breaks the pin. Flip, Flop and Fly in stereo, Dreamer calls for a WAZZUP, Mickie does a Diving Polish Hammer to Bully’s balls. Then Dreamer shoves Mickie and tells her to get the tables.

Masha does one of the ugliest dives I’ve ever seen on Mickie, but its effective. Bully hits a Low Blow while the referee is messing with the table, Piledriver from Bully and the Bully wins it for the team.

Masha tells Bully to set up the table after the match. Bully is about to Powerbomb Mickie, but Jordynne Grace hits the ring with a Kendo Stick. Bully turns, Jordynne hits the ropes for a Spear but Bully moves and Jordynne cuts Mickie in half.  

Next week is going to be more of a hype show for Mutiverse United. There will be a few never broadcasted matches, but since its WrestleMania Weekend, that takes precedence. 

Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose

Joe Hendry’s doing his usual promo after his music, but Dango also grabs a microphone which throws off Hendry a little. So when Hendry says “Say the only two words that matter” – Dango interjects with SUCK IT. Fun ways to tap dance around trademarks. 

Hendry and Myers start off which actually plays nicely into the story. Hendry invoked Myers’ rematch clause, so of course he wouldn’t be opposed to mixing it up before the PPV. Dango gets tagged  and tries to get Moose to dance. Moose’s leg shakes a little like he has to fight the urge to dance, and then charges at Dango. Little things like that reminds everyone that Moose is a likable performer, he’s just a heel right now, so he’s trying to ignore his fun side. Myers comes back in, Arm Trap Suplex, Tornado DDT where he kicks off of Moose who’s trying to interrupt. They wipe out Moose and Myers, Hendry puts his hands in the air for the wave, but Dango thinks it should be something else. Moves Hendry’s hands a little and then does a SUCK IT.

Off the commercial, Falcon Arrow from Dango, he tries to go to the top but Moose distracts Dango and Myers throws him off the top rope to the outside. Dango tries for the Cradle Counter Roll, but Myers blocks long enough to tag Moose. So Moose blindsides Dango before the 1 count even happens. Myers Knee Lift, holds onto Dango’s ankle and reaches to tag in Moose. So Dango is just getting totally singled out. Dango kicks Moose away, Moose tries for Go To Hell, but Dango keeps swinging, rocks Moose a little and then the Diving European Uppercut gives Dango the space he needs for the tag.

Simultaneous tags, Myers gets caught mid Crossbody, Sack of Shit from Hendry and then Joe Kips Up. Hendry tries a Trust Fall, Myers slips it, Enzuigiri, but then Hendry hits the Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2. Moose is in, Dango is in, Dango gets dumped out, Moose hits the Lights Out on Hendry. Roster Cut from Myers, 1-2-3.

Josh Alexander walks out to the ring after the Maclin/Swann shenanigans. Josh punctuates his promo with saying Maclin is afraid of failure, afraid of being a man without a purpose, afraid of being a Forgotten Son. Maclin’s music hits and he chuckles at the line and gives Josh a little kudos. 

Maclin is cutting a perfect heel promo since he’s validating everything Josh said, and even presents video evidence of how much scouting he’s doing to avoid failure. However, through his validation he’s also poking holes in Josh’s confidence. Josh tries to say it changes nothing and he’s a fighting champion and tries to challenge Maclin now…because now Josh is scared. Like Frankie said, Maclin is doing it “My Way”. So he says no to the challenge and that he wants to take it in Josh’s home town. 


Overall Score: 7.25/10

Now I usually get bored with promos to close a show, but they both played their parts perfectly. Josh with the strong babyface opening trying to discredit the opponent as just another victim of circumstance; but Maclin bringing the receipts like he just walked into H&R Block was beautiful. I’ve enjoyed a lot of Maclin’s run in IMPACT, but this is the cherry on the top. He NEEDS to win the title, he’s perfect since you could see in Josh’s face and body language his confidence is a little shaken.

I also appreciated a few of the little storytelling beats, like in Hendry’s match. Opening against Myers plays into the story, and then Moose hitting the Lights Out and then walking out of the ring just watching his handy work as Myers hits the Roster Cut for the win. Proves everything both men said leading up through this story. Deonna also being the best wrestler in the Knockouts division, but still not capable of beating a 3 on 1 with no friends played well towards something. It’s either going to culminate in Mickie and Deonna burying the hatchet frenemies style, or we’ll see Deonna having to evolve into a more straight forward babyface since she can’t play the heel or tweener with no friends.

The Twitter feed didn’t have the segment with The Death Dollz, but potentially writing off Taya by bringing Su Yung/Susie/Susan back works well since it gives JesSICKa a chance at an angle, Su could always side with The Coven, they can play in the paranormal nicely for a few more months. I just really hope they don’t return JesSICKa to Havok. Havok got stale and pathetic, whereas JesSICKa is entertaining both in and out of the ring.

But hey, tomorrow is Sacrifice, so watch your Steiner Math promos and strap in for the PPV!

The Outcasts may have knocked her down, but Skye got back up! And she shows Frost respect by upholding the Code of Honor. Will Skye be reaching for the stars in the ROH Women’s Division?


Rush & Dralistico w/ Jose the Assistant VS Rhett Titus & Tracy Williams!

All the tag teams in ROH want to #ReachForTheSky, including these two teams. Will La Faccion Ingobernable keep things tranquilo? Or will The Professional and the Hot Sauce be just a little too much for LFI?

The Code of Honor is NOT upheld, so the brawl is on! The bell rings, the forearms fly fast and furious, and the former ROH Tag champs get the edge! They run, but into DOUBLE SHOTGUNS! LFI builds speed, only to double tranquilo! Fans are torn, but Tracy SHOTGUNS Rush back! Rhett goes after Dralistico but gets thrown out. Double CHOPS sandwich Tracy, then Dralistico CHOPS again!

Rush CLOBBERS Rhett! Fans fire up, Rush runs at Tracy, but Tracy SPEARS first!! All four men are down and the fans are thunderous for “R O H! R O H!” Rhett drags himself up, Rush roars, Rhett runs in! Rush OVERHEAD suplexes Rhett into buckles! Dralistico FLIES out onto Tracy and Jose! Rush stomps around, aims at Rhett, “When you mess with the bull!” BULL’S HORNS!!! Cover, LFI wins!

Winners: Rush & Dralistico, by pinfall

La Faccion Ingobernable is on a win streak, but Supercard of Honor is coming. Will LFI be the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions?


Caprice Coleman sits with Eddie Kingston and Claudio Castagnoli.

Caprice is with The Mad King and the Swiss Superman to talk about the last few weeks. Eddie challenged Claudio for the ROH World Championship, and Claudio denied it, saying Eddie is a man without honor. Can Claudio explain that? Well, it should be self-explanatory. But Claudio does want to apologize. Eddie does have honor, in his own way. Eddie has pride, something that has gotten in his way many times, but Eddie has honor. Claudio admits to being wrong on that. But he will still stand by his statement that someone like Eddie should not be ROH World Champion.

How does Eddie respond to that? Caprice knows all the years he’s put into wrestling, and knows that ROH is a prestigious title. Can Eddie shoulder that responsibility? Eddie says Claudio’s opinion doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is beating Claudio for that title. A title that mentors of Eddie’s have held. Low-Ki. Xavier. Homicide. That lineage belongs to Eddie, the underdog, the fighter. Claudio’s not a fighter, not an underdog, he knows that, because they know each other. They’ve lived with each other, met each other’s families. Claudio’s a coward for not doing business, so Eddie will force his hand. And Mox can’t stop this.

Interesting that Eddie would use the words “underdog” and “fighter.” Eddie always sees himself as an underdog, as a victim. When it comes to being a fighter, who is the one who always quits? Yeah, they used to live together, but also train together. Who ran off when things got hard? Claudio stayed, worked every single day that Eddie didn’t while throwing a pity party. Guess who put the work in? Guess who is champion right now because of that? Yeah, for now. Talk tough all you want, Eddie, you don’t walk the walk. Oh, word? Well, Eddie promised not to get up and punch Claudio, it’ll stay civil.

Claudio says Eddie is always a tough talker, always loud, that’s fine. Claudio isn’t afraid of Eddie, he’s afraid for Eddie. Eddie cannot beat Claudio, he cannot reach Claudio. Never did, never will. Then prove it! Prove it by giving Eddie his shot! Claudio says that if Eddie wants the shot, he’s got it! But Claudio will tell us all what’s gonna happen, think of this as a spoiler. Claudio will beat Eddie and outclass him. Then Eddie will blame everyone but himself for the loss. He’ll throw a tantrum then quit and run away to implode. Claudio tells Caprice that this man, Eddie, is the biggest waste of potential Claudio’s seen in his life!

Claudio saw Eddie when he was young, he saw the fire in his eyes, and that Eddie could’ve had it all. But then he threw himself a pity party and threw it all away. So mark Claudio’s words. After he retains his title at Supercard of Honor, this will happen again. Because Eddie can’t handle it! Caprice says it is official for March 31st in Los Angeles. Eddie VS Claudio, sign, sealed and delivered. But who will fight and who will run when all is said and done?

ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Cheeseburger!

The King of Wrestling Television is going to get a helping of Sussex County Chicken at Supercard of Honor, but he’s having quite the appetizer! Will Joe tear into the all beef body of Cheeseburger? Or will this be the biggest upset in ROH history?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is headed for the Supercard of Honor!

The bell rings and Joe fires off knees and JABS on Burger! Joe says, “You remember, Mark! You remember what you’re getting in the ring with: ME!!” Fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” but Burger still fires body shots and forearms! Burger runs, into a LARIAT! Joe asks if Mark remembers. “I’m gonna remind you.” Joe drags Burger up, hoists him up top, HEADBUTTS him, then tucks him in! MUSCLE BUSTER!!! Cover, Joe wins!!

Joe then snatches Bobby Cruise’s chair away! Referees rush out to reprimand Joe, but here comes BRISCOE! Mark is here with a chair of his own! Mark runs Joe off, but the clock is ticking! Will Mark finally fulfill his destiny by dethroning Joe? Or will the King of Wrestling TV only shine in Hollywood?

My Thoughts:

A really good ROH here, lots of development towards Supercard of Honor, and surprisingly, only one promo. That one promo was a very good promo as Eddie and Claudio get at each other and make an official ROH World Championship match for the PPV. There’s a lot of continuity to call upon from AEW here, can’t wait to see which way this one goes. Given how much the Blackpool Combat Club is still doing in AEW, this would be a pretty good opening for Kingston to win and let Claudio focus on AEW for a minute. Eddie can then have all sorts of great matches with ROH stars both old and new as ROH reestablishes itself.

Good women’s matches tonight, with Skye Blue getting a great win off Lady Frost and Billie Starkz with the surprising win over Alize. Athena VS Yuka Sakazaki is set for the PPV but I don’t see Athena losing. That means there must be plenty of strong Faces ready to challenge her. Skye is also still part of story in AEW, so maybe after we see The Outcasts VS Team AEW Homegrown play out, Skye devotes time to ROH and challenges for the title. Really good stuff out of Taven VS Darius, but of course The Kingdom helps Taven win that. Top Flight and The Kingdom should both be in that Reach for the Sky ladder match to both settle their feud and perhaps crown one team the champs.

Great interweaving of stories when it comes to the ROH Six Man titles. Fox, Blake & Metalik win against Trustbusters to shut them up and be clear next challengers, which is also made clear by The Embassy jumping them. Great showing from Deppen against Cage but I figured Cage would win. And then great retaliation from Fox, Blake & Metalik, which are going to need an official trio name if they’re gonna stick together. It really is three big hosses against three lighter high-flyers, this clash of styles is going to make for great stuff, but I can’t be sure the Faces dethrone the Embassy.

Really good stuff from tag teams tonight, such as LFI VS Rhett & Tracy and Aussie Open VS Daniels & Sydal. LFI and Aussie Open each winning makes sense, both factions are going strong in ROH but also other companies (AEW for LFI and NJPW for Aussie Open), these teams should also get in on the ladder match. Not to be mean to Aussie Open, but they’re already set for the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, they don’t necessarily need the ROH titles. LFI would be a strong choice for the next ROH Tag Team Champions, and should think about bringing Preston Vance into ROH so they can really start to dominate a promotion.

Really good match from Silas VS Shane, both guys have been great mainstays of ROH, and great win for Shane. Depending how the titles go, I would love if Shane went after the world title in the next phase. I mostly say that because the fans really like Shane, and it’d be a shame if Shane had to face another fan favorite. Though that said, fan favorite Cheeseburger got squashed in a title match main event just so Joe could prove a point to Mark Briscoe. Mark had a great win to open tonight, and he made the save to close the night, I kinda hope Mark finds a way to get that TV title to “fulfill destiny” on the same night ROH honors the Briscoe tag team legacy with that ladder match.

My Score: 8.7/10
