Raw opens with BRAUN!

The Monster Among Men and one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions marches out to the ring, where Michael Cole waits at the table. This is the contract signing for the WWE Universal Championship match Strowman and Seth Rollins will have for Clash of Champions! And speaking of, Rollins appears next! Baltimore is fired up for #Braullins being in the ring and at the table together. Michael Cole speaks to making their match official. But he reminds them that they will also have to defend their tag team titles against Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. How on Earth are these two going to work as a team?

Rollins tells Michael he is no stranger to defending multiple titles in one night. As for their team, he and Strowman can definitely beat Ziggler and Roode. Rollins intends to walk in a double champ, #BurnItDown, and walk out still double champ. That’s just him, he won’t speak for Braun. Braun chuckles and says Rollins is right, no one speaks for the Monster. Clash of Champions will have them beat Roode & Ziggler, but Strowman knows it will be awkward when Rollins gets beat by his own partner to become the new Universal Champion. Yes, that would be awkward. But here’s a little secret: Strowman is great as a tag team partner, but Rollins Slayed the Beast. That’s something not even Strowman could do. So at Clash, Rollins will keep this title by Slaying the Monster.

But wait! Here comes The OC! United States Champion, AJ Styles, and the Good Brothers are told they have no business out here when this is for the Universal Championship. But Styles just ignores that and says Clash will make history. Oooh~! Fans cheer for Styles, but Styles continues that this is the first time we’ll see tag team partners defend titles and then face each other. How kawaii~! Are you kidding?! Why did Strowman get this opportunity? Because he’s Rollins’ partner? Because he looked at the title, then picked it up all, “Strowman would like to have this pretty thing.” By proxy, the United States Champion should get his shot. Who is Styles’ opponent, anyway?! Here’s an idea! Styles will just get people to look at his title, and the first one to gets the shot. Gallows, Anderson, don’t look, because that’s all it takes in the WWE now.

The OC head down the ramp as Styles says it’s more ridiculous it’s getting. Bobby- er, “Robert” and Dolph? C’mon! Why do they get their shot? They weren’t even a real team! But the OC, that is a team. The reality of this whole thing: if the Good Brothers don’t get what they want, and Styles doesn’t get what he wants, then no one here gets what they want. Michael tries to keep the peace but Styles shouts that he’ll slap Michael’s teeth down his throat. The OC climb into the ring but #Braullins is ready. Styles takes the contract, and tears it up! And makes it rain! And the fight is on! The table goes flying into Styles and then the OC #GetTheseHands, a SUPERKICK, and clotheslines! The OC is down and Baltimore is fired up, are we getting something going? Find out after the break!

The Queen of Harts doesn’t care about her bad arm, she’s going to fight through the pain! But will she regret that choice when going against the Sassy Southern Belle?

Sassy for sure as she dabs away the sweat, but Lacey still took a shortcut to win. Is the Lady of Raw going to fight her way back to the Raw Women’s Championship by any means necessary? Is Natty finally going to take time to rest that bad arm?


Becky Lynch heads to the ring!

The Man has a special match later on, but right now she wants to respond to The Boss! Baltimore cheers for Becky as she takes to the mic. “It’s good to be back in Baltimore.” And The Man has something to say. Sasha, where are ya? Becky heard about those horrible excuses, and just wanted to say to Sasha’s face, “it’s such a load of crap.” What happened to Sasha? Of all people, Sasha has no reason to whine. She was the centerpiece of NXT while Becky was her sidekick. Sasha got called up to be in main events while Becky struggled to get on TV. Sasha got bouquets of flowers after matches. The Horsewomen started at the same time, but it was Sasha and Charlotte being paraded “like the frauds that you are.” But Becky’s shown Flair why Becky is The Man, so now she’ll teach Sasha the same thing.

When Sasha left after Wrestlemania, she left with nothing. But Bayley was just fine without her. That probably stings the most, huh? It hurts that Becky is the face of the WWE. But just remember, that with all of Sasha’s talent, she should’ve been the historic game changer in Becky’s place. That’s why Becky kept calling Sasha out, so that Sasha would remember just how bad she treated Becky. They will settle this woman to woman, “ya blue haired, freak!” Becky isn’t even mad yet because the anticipation is building. But here comes Sasha! Becky wants her to come to the ring but Sasha stays on stage. Sasha was supposed to be Becky? Yeah, she was! She was supposed to main event Manias, be on magazine covers, have the fame and glory, but lucky little Becky. The only reason Becky got that stuff was because Nia Jax broke Becky’s face. If only Nia broke Sasha’s face so fans would care.

But let’s not make this personal, this is business. Just like it was when Sasha beat Becky with the chair and everyone had to scrape Becky off the floor. Now did that feel personal? Because Sasha can make it personal. If Sasha wants to fight, Becky’s fine with that. Sasha says Becky doesn’t understand. Sasha won’t do anything for the fans for free. She does it when she wants, and for a paycheck. So when they fight, it will be for the Raw Women’s Championship at Clash of Champions. She wants a match? All she had to do was ask. And nothing is bigger right now than Man VS Boss. Sasha’s on. Then after Clash, The Man will be the Boss’s B*tch! Becky isn’t impressed by the tag line, but she is fired up for their fight. Who wins when two of the baddest finally do battle?


The Street Profits are in awe.

What are they supposed to say to that? Montez Ford says just go to commercial in three, two, one. We out!


It is official!

Clash of Champions WILL featured The Man VS The Boss! Is Sasha going to have that title back in her return to Pay-Per-View?


King of the Ring Quarterfinals: Baron Corbin VS Cedric Alexander!

The Lone Wolf is pushing his luck touching the crown again. But he might benefit from unforeseen circumstances after The OC attacked Alexander for no reason. Will Corbin step closer to reigning over Raw? Or will the Age of Alexander still rise up despite being at such a disadvantage?

Cedric fires off on Corbin’s arm now, but the ref backs him off. Cedric sees Corbin on the outside, so he builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit takes Corbin down! Baltimore is loving this as Cedric grits his teeth. Both men slowly rise and “This is Awesome!” Cedric puts Corbin in then climbs up. Cedric leaps, big missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! Corbin still lives and Cedric is starting to grow frustrated now. But Baltimore gives Cedric power to bring Corbin back up. Corbin resists the lift and punches back. He reels Cedric in but Cedric roll shim up, TWO! Scoop to a Michinoku Driver! Cover, TWO!! Corbin survives again and Cedric is shocked. Cedric aims at Corbin, runs corner to corner as Baltimore cheers, but is put on the apron. But he enziguris back! Springboard, but Corbin disrupts that by pushing the ropes! END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!

Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall; advances to the semifinals

The Lone Wolf takes advantage of a damaged Soul and keeps his own dreams alive. But who meets Corbin in the next round?


Daniel Bryan releases a statement on the incident on SmackDown.

“Roman Reigns speared me last week and I understand his frustration. I know how it looks. I know a lot of people don’t like me and I know I seem guilty by association, but that doesn’t make me a liar. Erick Rowan is the one to blame, and I have had nothing to do with this. Therefore, I still deserve an apology from Roman Reigns.” Is this just more lies to keep himself from suspicion? Or a set-up for an even bigger reveal?


Stone Cold Steve Austin Tweets at Raw!

The Rattlesnake was watching, and says that Universal Championship contract signing needs to be complete, but with good ol’ Stone Cold moderating! Austin returns to Raw in Madison Square Garden! And that’s the bottom line, cuz Stone Cold said so!


Backstage interview with SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley.

Former friend Sasha Banks is now the talk of the town, but Bayley hasn’t said a word. What are her feelings about this shocking return? Doesn’t seem so. But what about how Sasha said the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships meant nothing to her? Well Bayley’s talked with Sasha, but she’s not going to share with us because it’s personal. We know what happened at Mania: Banks took her ball and went home. That was her choice. But not Bayley. Bayley moved forward to go after every opportunity on SmackDown, and now she’s champion! And teaming with Becky should be the real story, going against the Tag Team Champions, #BlissCross. The spotlight will be on Becky as the face of the division. Bayley will not let anyone think she’s being overshadowed. The SmackDown Women’s title is just as important as Raw’s. Bayley does what she has to in order to win. Bayley beat Nikki Cross, so she’ll try to get Bliss this time. And we’ll see who is in whose shadow.


The Viking Raiders VS Bryan & Tyler!

The war comes to Baltimore as Bryan and Tyler are daring enough to take on Erik and Ivar. This is an opportunity for these two boys from Pittsburgh to show the “Baltimorons” how it’s done. But will the Steel City Boys simply be cannon fodder?

Cover, the Viking Raiders win!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, Ivar pinning

That was the highest anyone has ever gotten in the #VikingExperience! Will Erik & Ivar continue to escalate until they have gold?


Backstage interview with Sasha Banks.

Sasha is still friends with Bayley but she is not friends with Becky. Is she rooting for the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champions tonight? Sasha sees what’s going on here. So get the HELL out of her face!


King of the Ring Quarterfinals: Samoa Joe VS Ricochet!

The Lone Wolf awaits in the semifinals, but will he be happy with this match’s results? Will it be the Samoan Submission Specialist or the One and Only that advances?

Raw returns as Joe addresses the WWE Universe. Joe sees “a great affliction” within the kingdom, because this kingdom is full of liars! “Every man who received a seed in this tournament has told you they will be the new reigning King of the Ring.” But those lies won’t cover up the universal truth: that King Samoa Joe sounds just right.

Ricochet dares Joe to come back, but Joe doesn’t. So what happens in the tournament?!


Strowman talks with Rollins backstage.

They both know about Stone Cold coming to settle the contract signing. That’s the best thing for them. No, Strowman senses what’s happening. He knows Austin is behind Rollins, and now Austin will be here for the signing, that doesn’t seem right. Is that what Strowman sees? A conspiracy of Rollins and Austin after what The OC and Roode-Ziggler did? Rollins knows Strowman senses the tag team title match is the opportunity for one of them to be betrayed. Rollins has been on both sides of that, so he promises not to do that. As for Austin, Rollins is okay with that. Strowman wants everyone know that not even Stone Cold is going to stop him. And if he tries, Austin will #GetTheseHands!


Connor’s Cure introduces the newest crop of cancer fighting superstars!

Julius Lopez is the Sarcoma Warrior! He was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, and it was removed. He thought he wasn’t going to live through that experience. But he won the fight and will use his heart of gold and titanium knee to defeat any challenge! OOOAH~! Was that good, Big Dog? Roman couldn’t have said it better himself.


Raw presents Firefly Fun House!

Bray Wyatt returns! But before the fun starts, Bray apologizes to Finn Balor for The Fiend being “super duper rude.” So on behalf of everyone at the Fun House, “I’m sorry.” But on to bigger news! OH NO! Him… “How dare you challenge Seth Rollins and/or Braun Strowman to a match at Hell in a Cell!” Does Bray know how valuable they are? You’re….. Wait! Look what Bray has. MONEY~! Bray feeds the money to the boss, nom nom nom. That satisfies the boss. That was close. Besides! Clearly Strowman and Rollins aren’t a good team. They’re both selfish, greedy, and in another life, they took something very dear to Bray. But unlike those “bozos,” Brya embraces teamwork! He, Abby, Mercy and all the puppets–Shut up, Ramblin’ Rabbit, no one cares about your cries for help–are a great team. They all help Bray cope with the pain. And the Fiend helps Bray inflict pain. See you in Hell, in a Cell! “Let me in.” BYE~~!


Backstage interview with referee John Cone.

The referee of record is interrupted by Baron Corbin. Double elimination, bye-bye, and Corbin gets a bye to the finals. Actually, management decided that both Ricochet and Joe advance! What!? Next week, the semifinals will be a TRIPLE THREAT! And that means two threats to Corbin taking the throne! Who comes out of this unconventional King of the Ring match to represent Raw in the finals?


Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio!

The King of Lucha almost retired last week, but Dominic kept him from pulling the trigger and pulling off the mask. Mysterio and his son talked, shared stories, and Dominic shared how much it meant to grow up in the WWE Family. Mysterio is blessed to have seen his son growing up into a fine man. And he thanks his son for supporting him to keep going. And thinking about it, it is crazy. As parents, you are to push your children to follow their dreams. Here, Dominic pushed Mysterio to follow his. Mysterio says he isn’t done here in the WWE. “Not just yet.” He has much more to accomplish. He does this for his son, Dominic. Will the support of his son help Mysterio reach new heights in his already historic career?


The Miz VS Cesaro!

The Hollywood A-Lister prepares to prove he’s not soft to the King of Strong Style and his “spokesman,” Sami Zayn. Meanwhile, the Swiss Cyborg returns from Wales after an excellent match as part of NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff! Can Miz keep going strong towards his Intercontinental Championship match with Shinsuke Nakamura? Or will Cesaro continue his roll from this weekend?

Winner: The Miz, by pinfall

And it’s over just like that! The A-Lister gets the momentum he needs, but will he be ready for a fight from Shinsuke?


Championship Showcase: Bayley & Becky Lynch VS Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross!

For the first time ever in WWE History, mostly because there are finally this many women’s titles in the WWE, we will have a Women’s Champions VS Champions tag match! Will the Hugger and The Man still work together as NXT Horsewomen? Or will the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions prove they’re worthy of more than just these belts?

The teams sort out, and Bayley starts against Nikki. These two tie up and Bayley wrenches Nikki to a wristlock. Bayley yanks on the arm then pushes Nikki down to the mat. Nikki gets up, rolls and hops on for a sleeper hold! But Bayley throws her off and avoids getting the table top to snap suplex Nikki down. Cover, ONE, but Bayley keeps on Nikki. Nikki headbutts out but is thrown out. Bayley goes out to daredevil dropkick through the corner! Bayley brings Nikki  up but Alexa hurries after. Becky LEAPS to take Alexa out! Bayley puts Nikki in but Nikki gets right out. And here comes Sasha! Is Sasha here to support Bayley or fight Becky? We’ll see what The Boss does after the break.

Raw returns once more, and Alexa keeps Bayley back from Becky with a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Alexa keeps on Bayley with a chinbar, but Bayley endures. Sasha is stoic while Becky gets fans rallying up for Bayley. Bayley fights up but Alexa powers her to the corner! Tag to Nikki, and Bayley gets fed to a boot.

Nikki has Becky and tosses her to the apron. Becky kicks back, then kicks high. Becky has Nikki to Becksploder Nikki into the corner! Becky Firearms and rocket kicks each of the tag champs. Becky fires off but here comes Sasha with the BACKSTABBER!

Winners: Becky Lynch & Bayley, by disqualification

Apropos that Sasha used that move to betray Becky and Bayley in one go! Sasha throws Becky into the post! Sasha smiles as she goes under the ring to fetch a new chair! She brings it into the ring with her, and Becky crawls, to get a SMACK to the back! And another! But Bayley stops Sasha! The best friends are suddenly divided. Or are they…? Because Bayley has the chair, and smiles at Sasha. SHE SMACKS BECKY!! Bayley fires off chair shot after chair shot on Becky’s back! Bayley said she’d do whatever she had to in order to get out of Becky’s shadow, and this might be that! What does this mean for Clash of Champions?!



My Thoughts:

A solid episode for Raw this week, with just a few weeks to go before the PPV. That contract signing to open was actually great because it was new. I don’t recall when a contract signing turned into a brawl because of someone not part of the title match. And I’m a little surprised Roode & Ziggler helped give the beat down, but at the same time, what else but 5v2 would’ve worked considering Braun Strowman is involved? Heels still work as “enemy of my enemy is my friend” in WWE, and it at least pushes that the solidarity between Roode & Ziggler is real. They also got a good warm-up out of Hawkins & Ryder, so there’s that. I don’t think Strowman needs to be paranoid about Austin showing up for Rollins’ sake. But it was good to hear Rollins understand the meta of their situation, that a betrayal could help give someone an advantage in their singles match, and promise it won’t happen. Probably doesn’t change anything that he said it, but it was good that he said it.

And I also like that Bray Wyatt is wanting The Fiend to get a Universal Championship match. Hell in a Cell is perfect, and both Rollins or Strowman would make for a great opponent. Rollins VS Fiend would probably be the better match, but I feel like the story would be stronger with Strowman given the Wyatt Family history. At this point, I can’t say Rollins loses at Clash of Champions, so I expect that to be our story after Clash. However, I will say that the story only works if The Fiend wins, because everyone is loving The Fiend. Meanwhile, I feel like the love is starting to leave for the Viking Raiders as far as the live audiences go. The squash match is not working anymore, post-Clash the Raiders need to go after the tag titles, which I assume will be on Roode & Ziggler somehow someway. Raiders VS Roode & Ziggler will put on a great match and that will help fix some of what Vince has done to “Erik” and “Ivar.”

There was some sloppy stuff in the Natty VS Lacey stuff. Mostly that ramp attack spot. None of it worked even in wrestling context. The music gave away Natty interrupting Lacey. Natty waiting for Lacey to turn around because of the parasol in the way was dumb. And then there was nothing for Lacey to sell because it was just a shoulder bump. The match was a bit better, and Lacey wins to stay afloat, but Natty needs to actually take care of that kayfabe arm injury now. Miz VS Cesaro was pretty good, and obviously Raw doesn’t care how great Cesaro was at TakeOver: Cardiff. Miz did need the win for his story, or else he will be falling behind Shinsuke and Sami. SmackDown probably has more on this involving Sami and Shinsuke. For that matter, SmackDown clearly sets things up for Roman and Bryan given the text statement from Bryan tonight. I really hope SmackDown finds a way to salvage that crammed segment last week.

Both King of the Ring matches were great. Cedric got some real shine and apparently won Baltimore over, but Corbin winning made sense, as much as everyone dislikes his character. He’s been bragging, he gets to brag some more, but then what a stroke of genius for Ricochet VS Joe to be a Dusty Finish and they both move on. Triple Threat for the semifinals is incredible, because this gets rid of any Face VS Heel predictability up to this point. I feel like this could go any which way out of this, but honestly it would be better if Corbin loses so he can throw a fit. Plus it just feels like the way of the world for Corbin: he talks trash but gets bit by karma every time. Then the best material of tonight was the Women’s Championship story/stories. Banks and Becky make their match official via their promos, and then we get a pretty good match of all the champs.

I was pretty sure Becky and Bayley were going to win even without Sasha, but her getting involved was also natural. The amazing surprise was Bayley going HEEL! Fans of Bayley were wondering if this would ever happen, and it did, and what a great way to do it! Granted, this completely undoes my Banks VS Bayley idea at Survivor Series, them being enemies wanting to figure things out between them, but now it might make for even better things. Becky will want to get back at them both, and go after Sasha first. Then assuming Bayley gets through whoever at Clash with her new “any means necessary” philosophy (aka Champion’s Advantage), she’ll eventually move on to face Becky for a match that WWE planted seeds for not too long ago. I hope this is a sign WWE is finally doing some long(er) term booking again.

My Score: 8.3/10

  • Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Qualifier: ???
  • Seth Rollins & AJ Styles VS The Judgment Day; win(s).


Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!

Fans fire up as Seth Freakin’ Rollins walks down from the top of the stands! They sing his song as he struts with the new World Heavyweight Championship belt around his waist and makes it to ringside. Then Rollins takes a victory lap before getting in the ring, for streamers and pyro! He revels in the moment as fans still sing, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins then gets the mic, fans sing some more, and he says, “ALBANY, NEW YORK! Welcome to Monday! Night! ROLLINS! I am a Visionary. I am a Revolutionary! I am… SETH! FREAKIN! ROLLINS!” Fans chant “You Deserve It!” and Rollins takes a moment to enjoy that.

Rollins says he is the World Heavyweight Champion, and the fans cheer. Rollins says it has been a long, long road to get here. Lots of lows, lots of highs. But standing here tonight, it just feels right, doesn’t it? HE doesn’t wanna talk too much about the past, he wants to focus on the future. “Because finally, Monday Night Raw has a champion that wants to be here, a champion that is going to be here, and most importantly, a champion that is ready for a fight!” Fans love the sound of that! They chant “Thank You, Seth!” and sing his song, but Rollins says yeah, he’s ready! He wants to fight! He wants ALL the fights!

Because it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, if you step to Rollins, the result will always be the same: Rollins, every Monday night, standing in this ring with the World Heavyweight title around his waist and the world singing his song! “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” But wait! AJ Styles is here? The Phenomenal One is a SmackDown superstar, but he’s here on Raw to step into the ring with the man he lost to at Night of Champions. Rollins looks at him over the brim of his sunglasses, but Styles gets a mic. Styles knows he’s supposed to be on SmackDown, but he couldn’t resist coming here to Raw… to say, “Congratulations.”

Fans cheer and Styles tells Rollins he gave it everything he had, left it all in the ring. It was like Rollins knew what he was gonna do before he did it. And the fans, they say Rollins “deserves it.” Styles says he doesn’t think Rollins deserves anything. Fans boo, but Styles says Rollins earned being World Heavyweight Champion. Rollins smiles and fans sing again, “WHOA~ OH~ OHH~!” Rollins tells Styles that he’s not too good at these things, but after the beating he gave Styles at NOC, Styles earned this: a handshake. Fans cheer as Styles accepts! There’s respect here, but then the Judgment Day comes out!

Finn Balor pretends to be sick as he has a mic of his own. He asks if this is making the others just as sick. Whatever this is makes Finn wanna PUKE! Damian Priest agrees, he’s queasy. Let’s get to something more positive. What’s that thing Rhea Ripley says? “The Judgment Day, we run Monday Night Raw!” The four get in the ring, and Priest says Rhea’s right. But after watching The Bloodline implode on Saturday, without a shadow of a doubt, the Judgment Day runs the entire WWE! And let’s not forget, Finn & Priest beat the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, something not even Roman Reigns could do!

And to Seth, from the champion to just another champion, Rollins shouldn’t get too comfortable with his new title. Because chances are, someone from Judgment Day will take it from him. Yeah, could be big Damian! Aw, thanks, Finn! He feels the same about you! Aw shucks, thanks, mate. Rhea says it could even be her Dom-Dom. Fans boo that and Rollins looks to Styles. They laugh at that! Dom asks why, what’s so funny? He beat Styles! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” at Dom, but Finn has everyone calm down. Finn says we saw Styles and Rollins beat each other half to death at Night of Champions. And-

Dom cuts in to say that the Judgment Day will finish the job! Fans boo but Styles asks if Rollins heard that. That almost sounds like a challenge. Rhea says it IS a challenge! Then they ACCEPT! Rollins says that’s right! Any two from Judgment Day VS Rollins & Styles in the main event of his show, Monday Night Rollins! Who will step to this phenomenal dream team? And will they only get stomped into the mat?


Adam Pearce is on the phone.

He discusses with someone. We’re all on the same page, because Rollins, Styles and the Judgment Day want this match. And yes, he understands it flies in the face of the new brand split of Raw and SmackDown, but… Yes, sir. No, Pearce thinks this match is incredible and happens tonight. Oh, hold on, they’re right here. Pearce sees Styles and Rollins talking and steps in. He knows they all want the match, so he’s working on it. Rollins says c’mon, it’s his first night as champion. Don’t embarrass him! Make the match! Styles says Rollins doesn’t speak for him. Oh, is Styles afraid of Dom? Does Rollins really think that? No, but maybe Styles is afraid of Rhea.

Pearce has them calm down and says he’s trying to get this approved. Does everyone have their gear? Styles is a pro, of course he does! Make it official! Then get Rollins to change his pants. Oh, good point. The superstars head out, Pearce is sure you know who heard all that. Then it IS official! The main event is going to be phenomenal, but who will Judgment Day send at Styles and the champ?


Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Qualifier: Ricochet VS The Miz!

The King of Flight is ready to take his career to new heights, and we all know the Money in the Bank briefcase can do that. Just as The Hollywood A-Lister. Will Miz look to launch into a new sequel from his previous MITB runs? Or will the One and Only be the one going to London?

Raw returns as Miz makes his entrance. The bell rings, Miz rushes in but Ricochet gets around to a headlock. Miz powers out, Ricochet rolls over the drop down and ducks the lariat to handspring, but into a full nelson! Ricochet arm-drags free, things speed up again and a kitchen sink knee hits Ricochet down! Miz then runs, but Ricochet ducks the boot to kip up, spin and PELE! Miz bails out, Ricochet builds speed! Miz moves but Ricochet tumbles up and out to the apron. Ricochet avoids the sweep, PENALTY KICKS Miz, then goes up the corner to MOONSAULT! Fans fire up for the direct hit at ringside!

Ricochet drags Miz up and puts him in the ring. Ricochet goes up the corner, but Miz gets under the leap! Miz runs in to RANA! Miz surprises us with that, and then he BOOTS Ricochet down! Miz talks trash, and he looks up to the briefcase. Fans taunt Miz’s “TINY BALLS!” but he goes out after Ricochet. Miz SMACKS Ricochet off the desk, and again, then pushes him over the desk. Fans boo as Miz shouts, “MASSIVE!” Miz drags Ricochet up, brings him back to ringside and puts him in the ring. Miz then climbs up, leaps and AX HANDLES Ricochet down! Cover, TWO! Miz hurries to clamp onto Ricochet with a chinlock as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns as Miz is stuck in the ropes! Ricochet ROCKS him, then jumps in, but Miz avoids the stomps! Miz ROCKS Ricochet, springboards and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Ricochet survives and Miz can’t believe it! “I springboarded and everything!” Miz is mad at the fans laughing at him, but Miz KICKS Ricochet in the chest! And again! And again! And again! Miz soaks up the heat, takes aim from a corner, but Ricochet blocks the buzzsaw! Ricochet KICKS and KNEES and runs, to CLOBBER Miz! Fans fire up, Ricochet feels it, and he runs in at the corner to RAM into Miz and go to the apron!

Ricochet bumps Miz off buckles then ROUNDHOUSES him away! Ricochet springboards, but into a full nelson! Ricochet RAMS Miz into a corner, but then Miz RAMS Ricochet into the other corner! Miz runs in, into an elbow! Ricochet goes up, Miz trips him up! DRAPING CODE BREAKER, to a BASEMENT DDT! Cover, TWO!! Ricochet survives and Miz is shocked! Miz scowls and looks to the briefcase, but fans rally up for Ricochet. Miz shouts MASSIVE! Full nelson, but Ricochet victory rolls! TWO, Miz has it, TWO! Ricochet HEEL KICKS! And then cravat, for an ASAI DDT!

Fans fire up again as Ricochet goes to a corner! Ricochet climbs up, aims, and SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Cover, Ricochet wins!

Winner: Ricochet, by pinfall (advances to MITB)

Add it to the highlight reel, Ricochet beats the two-time Mr. MITB to go to London! Will Ricochet win the golden ticket across the pond?


Trish Stratus is here!

Albany is torn seeing the WWE Hall of Famer after she cheated Becky Lynch at Night of Champions! But what does she have to say about that victory? We’ll hear, after the break.

Raw returns and Trish has a mic. She makes sure we all see “Thank You Trish” on her back, and she thanks some fans for saying it. You know what it means to her to hear it? NOTHING! She doesn’t care what the fans say. And she hates to say, “I told you so,” but she TOLD US SO! She said she was gonna go to Night of Champions and beat Becky. And what’d she do? She beat Becky! Just like that. But you shouldn’t be surprised, this is GOAT Things! This is what you do when you’re the greatest of all time! This is what you do when you’re number one! This is what you do when you’re “It.”

And now, Becky can crawl back to that dark hole and go do “stuff.” The stuff that everyone goes through. Well, not everyone. Not when you’re thriving like Trish. But it’ll give a chance for the real superstars to reach the Big Time. Like the one who had Trish’s back. Not that Trish needed the help, but because this superstar wanted to help. “A superstar with more attituded, aggression and ruthlessness than I’ve seen in a long, long time. Someone that reminds me of me. Ladies and gentlemen, please stand on your feet, get your hands ready to applaud, let me introduce you to… Zoey Stark!”

Fans boo instead as The Hunter makes her way out, wearing a “Thank You, Trish” T-shirt. Trish applauds as Zoey joins her in the ring. They hug it out while fans boo more. Zoey gets a mic now and says, “See, I came into this business, to the WWE, to be the best and to make a statement. And who better to learn by than the OG herself? And yeah, look, I could’ve taken the long, hard, difficult road, just like what Becky Lynch did. Or I could be smart! And be led by Trish Stratus! Trish is so giving, so humble, so kind. So now that I have the floor, I would just like to say one thing. Thank you, Trish.”

Fans boo more but Trish smiles. Trish says “You’re welcome.” Oh, what’s that on Trish’s face? Where? Up here? Other side. A little lower. Oh on her chin. That would be something courtesy of Becky Lynch. If Becky ever shows herself again, for messing with this perfect face, guess what Trish will do? Trish will have her new friend Zoey show you what’s up. But then here comes Becky! The Man is still wearing her Kill Bill jumpsuit and she says Zoey is gonna show her what’s up? No, Becky’s gonna ruin Zoey’s life. And Trish, you’re still in your gear, Becky’s still in hers… “Why don’t we restart that match and finish it one on one right here, right now?”

Fans love the sound of that, but Zoey rushes out! Becky DECKS her! And THROWS her into the barriers! Trish says okay, bring it! Becky gets closer to the ring and fans are fired up. Becky steps up to the apron, steps into the ring, and runs in! Becky dodges Trish, CLOBBERS her, BOOTS Zoey from the apron, then trips Trish to rain down fists! But Zoey attacks Becky from behind! And SLIDING KNEES her down! Fans boo but Zoey throws off the jacket so she and Trish can stomp away on Becky! Trish CHOKES Becky, then lets off so Zoey can bring her up. But Becky hits back! Zoey kicks Becky low, and reels her in for Z360!!

Fans boo as Zoey and Trish aren’t done, they get Becky back up! Trish kisses the ring, to DECK Becky with it!! Fans boo as the Hall of Famer needed her new protégé and a HOF ring to take down The Man! Then they put Becky in a corner and force her to wear a Thank You Trish shirt! Zoey says it looks great on her. Will Becky be able to recover and get some big time revenge?


Indus Sher w/ Jinder Mahal VS Javier Bernal & ???

Veer & Sanga have already been dominating and demolishing opponents since being drafted to Raw, and they want more. Will their thirst for combat be quenched here tonight?

The teams sort out, and Veer just CLOBBERS Javi and his teammate! Sanga then BLASTS the teammate off the apron! Veer drags Javi up to RAM him into the corner, and the bell finally rings. Veer runs to SPLASH Javi, and Javi staggers around. Veer shoves Javi down, stalks him, and stomps him down! Javi flounders to the apron, Veer tags Sanga, and Veer drags Javi up onto the ropes for Sanga to BOOT down! Sanga drags Javi up, THROWS him tot he corner, and he dares the partner to tag in. The partner does, but then Sanga blocks his haymaker to a FALCON ARROW! Sanga SPLASHES Javi for good measure!

Sanga then choke grips Javi to CHOKE SLAM him onto his teammate! Tag back to Veer, and they drag the tag partner up. SIDEWALK SLAM LEG DROP COMBO! Cover, Indus Sher wins!

Winners: Indus Sher, by pinfall

Like true tigers, Veer & Sanga tore into their prey and feasted on the meat! Will they soon be tasting a tag title opportunity?


Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn are backstage.

Speaking of the tag team champions, these two are still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions and are in a great mood. They’re headed to gorilla, what will they have to say about finally being done with The Bloodline?


Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn head to the ring!

Albany fires up as the Prizefighter & Great Liberator make their way out. Fans sing along with Sami’s song while he and Kevin get mics. Sami is fired up now! Fans chant for “SAMI! SAMI! SAMI!” and he says that obviously, he an d Kevin are feeling pretty good tonight. “Because at Night of Champions, we won!” And not just successfully defending the titles, no. Sami means they won! They did exactly what they set out to do, they watched the Bloodline crumble, and it was the worst night of Roman’s life! Roman deserves everything he got!

This is all Sami has to say about Roman: Roman may be the greatest of all time; Roman may hold the title(s) for another 1000 days; Roman may main event another FIVE WrestleManias; Roman could even be put in the Hall of Fame tomorrow! But it doesn’t matter because for the rest of his life, when he looks at Kevin & Sami, he will know in his heart that THEY won! Wait! IMPERIUM is here! Ludwig Kaiser has the mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen… Impressive victory, impressive victory indeed. But was it the most impressive victory of the night? It most certainly was not more impressive than the man who extended his record-setting Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship reign…!”

Imperium walks to the ring as Ludwig introduces Der Ring General, GUNTHER! Kevin asks why they’re here. Why? Because last week, Kevin & Sami said their name, the group walked out, it made sense. But this isn’t how things work! Do they think this is the Wild West? They can just hit their music and come on out? NO! That does not make sense! You gotta wait to be called out! What the hell is this!? They broke the rules! The unwritten rules! Sami tires to calm Kevin down but he keeps shouting at Imperium. Fans cheer for “K O! K O!” but Sami has him chill. Sami says Kevin is right, though, there is an unwritten rule and they had no business coming out here.

For that matter, Imperium ahs a match with American Alpha Academy or whatever? Imperium shouldn’t want a match with them, because last time, Kevin, Sami & Riddle embarrassed them. Yep! So… Y’know… Ludwig says if they wanna talk about embarrassments, RIDDLE is the embarrassment! Take a look at Kevin & Sami themselves! Them holding those titles is an embarrassment! Fans boo but Ludwig says they are not worthy of standing on this mat, of holding those championships, or of representing Monday Night Raw. Kevin says what he wonders is… We always hear from Slenderman over here.

And sometimes, “the one with the ears” (Gunther) talks. But we never hear from the bald one ! He’s always really quiet. What’s his opinion on all this? Yeah, we never hear from baldie! We should hear from baldie! Fans chant “BALDIE! BALDIE!” and Ludwig says how DARE they besmirch them!! No one disrespects- “SHOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!” Fans cheer as Chad Gable perhaps sets a world record with that one. “Shoosh, please!” Gable says it is time Imperium gets taught a free lesson, courtesy of the new and improved Academy! Gable, Otis, and the newest member of the Academy in Maxxine Dupri!

And if it is alright with Kevin & Sami, those lessons are gonna be handed out right now! Yeah, sure, but uh, can you do that thing again? Do the thing! What? What thing? The thing you say that makes Kevin laugh cuz you say it funny! That one! Oh, okay. He’s gonna say it, he’s gonna say it! “A THANK YEW~!” You’re welcome! Will Gable & Otis show Imperium what respect is really all about?

Imperium VS The Alpha Academy w/ Maxxine Dupri!

Raw returns and Kevin & Sami join commentary to watch this one. The teams sort out and Ludwig starts with Gable. They circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Ludwig headlocks, Gable powers out but Ludwig runs him over. Ludwig “kicks rocks’ at Gable, runs, but Gable gest around to waistlock, headlock and takeover. Ludwig headscissors, Gable kips fere, but now Ludwig headlocks for the takeover. Gable headscissors, Ludwig kips free, Gable trips him to a cover. ONE, Ludwig goes for the trip but Gable avoids it to waistlock and gator roll to a cover, TWO! Ludwig gets free but fans applaud the exchange.

Gable and Ludwig go again, Gable wrenches but Ludwig claws Gable’s face! Ludwig lets off in the corner to throw hands. Ludwig then UPPERCUTS, UPPERCUTS, but Gable blocks hip toss to give a hip toss! Giovanni Vinci runs in but Gable goes up to “A THANK YEW~” headscissor! Gable headlocks Ludwig, gets Vinci, too, and DOUBLE THROWS them both! Gable runs in at the corner to MONKEY FLIP Ludwig! “A THANK YEW~!” Kevin says you’re welcome! Maxxine cheers her team, but wait! Sarah Logan has appeared!? Why is she here? Well, it’s probably because The Viking Raiders lost to Alpha Academy…

Logan rushes Maxxine, Maxxine dodges, and then Maxxine KICKS Logan! She can kick?! But wait, Logan didn’t fall over… Logan turns around and glares at Maxxine. Maxxine runs away all the way tot he back! Ludwig CLOBBERS Gable! Ludwig stomps Gable around, drags him up and POSTS him! Tag to Vinci, they put Gable in the ropes, and they meet at the corner, DOUBLE DROPKICKS! Imperium stands tall while fans boo, but Gable crawls. Vinci hurries after him to keep him from Otis. Vinci bumps Gable off buckles but fans chant ‘BALDIE! BALDIE!” Vinci CHOPS Gable and stalks him along ropes.

Vinci scoops and SLAMS Gable into ropes! Tag to Ludwig, Imperium drags him up and Ludwig UPPERCUTS Gable! Then runs in, but into a BOOT! Gable elbows Vinci, but Ludwig keeps him from Otis! Gable reels Ludwig in, SAYANAGI! Gable crawls, Ludwig drags him away, but Gable BOOTS Ludwig out! Vinci gets back in but Gable TOSSES him! Gable crawls again, Sami & Kevin cheer him on, HOT TAG TO OTIS!! The tree trunk rallies on Imperium! Vinci dodges, runs, but into Otis’ arms! POWERSLAM! Fans fire up, Otis runs in to SPLASH Ludwig at the corner! Ludwig falls, and fans fire up!

Otis sees that, and he tears the shirt off! Otis hits the CATERPILLAR ELBOW! Cover, but Vinci breaks it! Vinci brings Otis up but Otis TOSSES him out! Tag to Gable and the Academy gets Ludwig up.

Backstage interview with Raquel Rodriguez & Shotzi Blackheart.

Cathy Kelley is at gorilla with the newly reunited Ballsy & Badass, and says since this is so recent, do they feel like they have built up the chemistry to get the tag titles in tonight’s Fatal 4? Yes- But then Damage CTRL interrupts. Bayley asks, “Are you kidding me? You guys aren’t even a real team.” No offense to Shotzi, but Raquel would’ve gone with the first person to raise their hand begging to be a partner. They ain’t DMG CTRL. And speaking of, this win is dedicated to Dakota Kai. So just stay out of their way, or they’ll end up like Raquel’s old partner, Liv Morgan. Bayley mocks the shoulder injury and then laughs.

Raquel says that is interesting. Because Shotzi & Raquel were real enough to win on SmackDown last week. And since Bayley first started DMG CTRL, isn’t she the only one who hasn’t held gold? And if she’s wondering why, just look in the mirror. Ballsy & Badass go out to the ring first, but who will return to the back with the titles on their waists?


Candice LeRae speaks.

“You might be thinking, ‘What’s with the fairy wings?’ Well, I believe fairytales are real. And how could I not? I’m living one. So my wings, they represent the magic that this fairytale has brought to my life. Candice LeRae is proof that when you believe, anything is possible.”

Dolph Ziggler VS JD McDonagh!

There’s no time to think! Dar cradles the cup, is the Scottish Supernova gonna lose his baby?

This is NXT Battleground!


NXT North American Championship Triple Threat: Wes Lee VS Tyler Bate VS Joe Gacy w/ Ava Raine!

The Cardiac Kid has had quite the must-see title reign, but his fighting-champion ways may have gotten him stuck between a rock and a hard place. The Big Strong Boi was his friend, but he couldn’t be upfront about wanting this match. The Schism’s sinister leader is a snake in the grass, but at least he was honest about his greed. Will one of them take this title away from the #WesSide? Or will the champion win that historic title defense record?

URENAGE REVERSE DDT COMBO!

Gacy clamps onto Wes with the RINGS OF SATURN!! Wes endures as Gacy pulls back! But Bate is up, and he BOOTS Gacy! But Gacy just grins!? Gacy tortures Wes while grinning at Bate.

Forged in NXT UK to celebrate the lineage of European wrestling, this will be a test of strategy, ability and determination! Six rounds, three minutes at a time, and first to two falls wins, aside from a disqualification or knockout. Will the Scottish Supernova keep his historically long reign going? Or will the Wonder Boy be the one that finally dethrones him?

Dragon Lee has the British Rocket by his side, but last we saw, Oro Mensah left Dar hanging. Does Dar have a cornerman? Doesn’t look like it. The introductions are made, the cup is displayed, and we see if Dar will be delighted or dismayed!

NXT checks in on Chase U.

Substitute teacher Duke Hudson says he has put in the results of everyone’s quizzes into the system, and they all did very well. EXCEPT RICKY! Ricky sucks! Aww…. Moving on, the MVP of Chase U and substitute teacher has been time consuming, as well as life draining. So he is bringing in two men to teach the Art of Catch Wrestling: Charlie Dempsey & Drew Gulak. And if anyone needs Duke, he is going to be in the back, working on the Money in the Bank study guides.

Gulak thanks Duke and tells the students that normally, you learn what to do. Today, let’s focus on what not to do when the bell rings. And who better to use as an example than Chase U’s own Thea Hail? Wait, what? Thea losing to Kiana James is used as the main example, and Dempsey says that Thea’s lack of grappling knowledge puts her at a severe disadvantage against every opponent. This is NOT how to become a superstar. But good news, not all students have to fail like Thea. Thea storms out, which gets Duke’s attention.

Gulak says with the right guidance, they can learn to crunch and crack opponents in half. Duke asks what the heck these two are doing, and Dempsey says they’re showing the Chase U students what not to do. Yeah, he knows that was the lesson, but they just made someone leave the classroom crying. Gulak says there’s no crying in WWE. This is  a reality check. No one talks to Thea or any of Duke’s- er, Chase U’s students like that! Next week, Duke has a better lesson prepared for them, in the ring. Get out. Gulak & Dempsey leave, Duke dismisses the class, and wants someone to check on Thea.

But at the same time, looking at the highlight reel, Duke isn’t happy. Will he need to start using some tough love to get Thea’s record up?


Backstage interview with Noam Dar and his team.

They’re all celebrating but McKenzie Mitchell asks for a word. She does congratulate him on retaining, but what is this? This is history! “They” just defended the cup on American soil! The lovely Miss Jackson is holding the cup, Lash and Dar’s “main man” Oro are by his side. There’s levels to this, and THEY are at the top! CHECK PLEASE! Thank you, buh-bye! They head out, but will this Supernova squad still be partying into the summer?

The Iron King’s return at Stand & Deliver is why Mark Coffey & Wolfgang are still on top, but now that trump card is out in the open. Will Julius & Brutus be the ones back on top now that they know all the pieces in play? Or will nothing stop Gallus from making this their kingdom?

NXT Women’s Championship Tournament Finals: Lyra Valkyria VS Tiffany Stratton!

Between injury and the WWE Draft taking Indi Hartwell away, the title was going to be vacated, and a new champion would need to be crowned. The Morrigan fought through Kiana James and Cora Jade while The Center of the Universe made it through Gigi Dolin and Roxanne Perez. Will Lyra ride on the winds of change to reach new heights? Or will Daddy’s Little Rich Girl once again get what she wants?

The introductions are made, the belt is on display, and one way or another, we will have a new champion!

The bell rings and fans rally and duel. Lyra and Tiff circle, stare down, and then tie up. They go around, Tiff puts Lyra on ropes but Lyra turns it around.

Tiff ROCKS Lyra, wrenches the arm, YANKS away on it, but Lyra rolls, kips up and WRINGS Tiff out! Tiff kicks around, rolls, kips, but Lyra wrangles her with a headlock!

Tiff blows a kiss, things speed up, Lyra hurdles but the bad leg gives out! Lyra hurries to a corner, walks it off, and Tiff smirks now. The two approach and Tiff wants a test of strength.

Tiff powers lyra up, but Lyra CRUCIFIX DRIVERS!! Cover, TWO!!! Tiff survives and fans fire up! Lyra drags Tiff to a drop zone, goes back up the corner, and fans fire up even more!

NXT Championship: Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Bron Breakker!

Boston’s hometown hero is none other than HIM! Melo is back in Massachusetts, ready to have a rematch from the main event of Stand & Deliver.

Will Bron break Melo to become a THREE-TIME NXT Champion? Or will Melo still not miss?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s a sadistic sequel to see who is really leader of the pack!

Melo goes to the apron, Bron brings him up, but then Bron blocks the gamangiri to DECK Melo! Bron goes out after Melo, fans boo but Bron kicks Melo into the barriers. And SMACKS him off them! Trick protests but Bron brings Melo around to put in the ring. Bron tells Trick to back off, and he goes to the apron, Melo KICKS Bron, and then HOTSHOT STUNNERS him! And then FADE AWAY LEG DROP! Cover, ONE!! Bron is hanging tough but Melo drags him to the ropes. Melo has the leg on the ropes to springboard STOMP it! Bron writhes, Melo grabs the leg and stomps away on it more!

Melo drags Bron around, steps over, HALF BOSTON CRAB! Fitting since this is #Melochussetts! Fans cheer, Bron endures, and Bron fights up. Trick demonstrates how to stretch Bron, but Bron turns things over! Bron BOOTS Melo away, then hobbles up. Melo runs back in, but Bron dodges! Melo goes up, FLYING ARM-DRAG! Melo runs in, but into a LARIAT! Bron’s good leg still has some explosive power to it! Bron hobbles around, he stalks Melo, and Bron brings Melo up, to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

Count it! Melo was in a shootout but he gets the game winner! The hometown crowd cheers their hero, has he dispatched of Bron once and for all? And if so, then who is next to challenge… HIM?

My Thoughts:

Awesome stuff for NXT here. Even though they call these Premium Live Events, this felt about as close to a TakeOver as we’re getting in this era. As such, this also flew by rather quick, and I’m not sure where they really could’ve given more time to anything because all these matches felt just right. The Triple Threat was a great opener, and I really liked Tyler Bate’s new robe and ring gear. And it was great for Wes to retain the title, he has done great work so he definitely deserves to be deemed the winningest North American Champion. There’s still any number of people he can face before ever losing the title.

Great follow-up in the Heritage Cup match, though boy I wish it was Sha Samuels who helped Dar win. But it is great for Oro Mensah, Lash Legend and Jakara Jackson to all have a spot in story and on TV. No idea how this is going to go now, other than Frazer VS Oro given their interaction. Dar can also face just about anyone next, and it feels like maybe they want it to be Frazer, between them both having talk shows, Frazer getting involved on Dragon Lee’s behalf, and the history between Frazer and Dar from NXT UK. Frazer is also great, and also deserving of things, this could be a great summer build for him.

That Last Man Standing match was wild! Never seen someone get a busted open chin the way Dragunov did, but it added something to this. Dragunov winning also made sense, as he’s been a great “giantslayer” before. But I can’t really be sure where he goes next, unless it’s the Heritage Cup with Dar being the Heel champion to Dragunov’s Face challenger. Great tag team championship match, it felt like the black ‘n’ gold era’s tag team wrestling. Though I should’ve known Ava and Ivy weren’t done fighting this out, and that is why The Creeds lose. The Tony D’Angelo arrest story is going to shake out, and maybe the D’Angelo Family gets to face Gallus over the summer, but a two month build to Great American Bash might be too much for this.

Speaking of which, great to see Great American Bash becoming more than just a themed episode on TV. A little surprised they aren’t trying for a little closer to July 4th, which is a Tuesday, but I guess that’s just how scheduling their events goes. And nice surprise promo from Chase U and Not Catch Point. Duke standing up for Thea is a good detail, but I feel like he’s going to get cheated by Gulak & Dempsey. And we might even get a tag match now of Dempsey & Gulak VS Duke and a returning Andre Chase. And good promo from this mysterious attacker, good that we’re finally going to see who this is. I’m hoping Blair Davenport, but for some reason the presentation of the character makes me think it’ll be Stevie Turner, making her streamer gimmick just her façade to fool us.

And awesome stuff from both top titles to close out the show. I wasn’t sure who was going to win in Lyra VS Tiffany, but it did feel too soon for Lyra. They kept her strong by making it about the injured leg, damage done by Cora Jade, and I don’t doubt Cora will take credit for it on Tuesday. Tiffany wins because she really is great in the ring, and is just too good at playing her character because it really gets the Heel heat from me. But HBK is also of the school that the Face is better in the chase, so whoever it is, whether Roxanne Perez, Gigi Dolin or even Lyra rising back up, they’re going to go after Tiffany over the summer.

In Bron VS Melo, I feel like Bron’s logo needs to change colors to go with his Heel side. Instead of the cyan, magenta and yellow, it should be like red, white and black. He was even wearing a white wolf mask with a black hoodie that was all “torn up and bloody,” so there it is: red, white and black. But naturally, Melo was winning here, 2-0 and winning the blowoff in his hometown. Great moment that Melo got to keep, no new challenger showing up at the end to shift attention or anything. That can be on Tuesday when Trick Melo Gang surely celebrates this win. Much like Wes and his title, Melo can move on to just about anyone for a fresh new feud to truly define Melo’s reign.

My Score: 8.9/10
