Bayley’s gone BAD!

The Boss was back in blue and badder than ever, and acted like the tag team titles meant nothing. Bayley would not directly comment on Sasha Banks’ actions, but vowed not to be overshadowed by Becky Lynch. And by the end of the night, we would see who was in whose shadow. The Champion’s Showcase went down, Sasha made her move on Becky, and Bayley would help! The best friends are even badder together, but will Becky stay down for the count?


Bayley is HERE!

And she seems to feel great after what she did to Becky last night. Norfolk is divided between loving and hating her, and Bayley doesn’t get it. “Everybody has something to say about what went down last night.” Everyone is “Oh my God, I can’t believe you did that!” But how didn’t they see that? Her responsibility who was with her along the way through good and bad, her best friend. Nothing has changed. Bayley is still trying to show everyone what kind of champion she’s trying to be. She’s trying to lift everyone up with her whole heart. Hugs for the kids! Ever since she started wrestling, she’s trying to make fans feel the way she felt as a kid. And now she has that opportunity. She is the hero and the role model showing kids what it means to be loyal. Bayley would never have turned her back on Sasha when things got rough. The fans deserve the kind of champion on par with Becky Lynch. And Bayley promises to be that champion for a long, long time, starting with beating the most selfish person on the roster, Charlotte Flair.

Charlotte has no idea what it’s like to be the role model that Bayley is being. But speaking of, here comes the Queen! Charlotte struts her way down the ramp and has Bayley scoot over so she can pose. And she asks Bayley, “I’m selfish?” How perceptive, Bayley. Charlotte takes pride in being the Queen of Selfishness. Fans say a lot about Charlotte, but what you see is what you get. There is no confusion, no blindsiding, and definitely no hugging. So Bayley better hug the title real tight because at Clash of Champions… Sasha Banks is here?! Charlotte just smiles, because it should’ve been obvious where one goes, the other follows. So Charlotte DECKS and BOOTS Bayley! Then she brawls with Sasha! Charlotte gets Sasha down to throw hands! But Bayley returns to SMACK Charlotte with a chair! And again! And again!

Fans chant “One More Time!” and Bayley hands the chair to Sasha. Sasha smiles and gives Charlotte a chair shot! And another! And another! Then Sasha hands the chair back to Bayley, and Bayley fires off again! Fans duel, and some want Becky to appear. But The Man doesn’t come around, and Bayley and Sasha stand tall. Will the baddest best friends both hold gold by the end of Clash of Champions?


King of the Ring Quarterfinals: Mustafa Ali VS Elias!

The Beacon of Light still shines after an incredible match with Buddy Murphy in the opening round! As for The Drifter, he benefited from the Best Screwjob in the World when Shane McMahon made himself an official and fast-counted Kevin Owens out of the tournament. But Ali isn’t Kevin, so will he get a fair shake against Elias?

SmackDown returns as Elias makes his entrance. Elias might be jinxing it by crowning his guitar before going to the ring. The bell rings and Ali ties up with Elias. Elias wrenches and wristlocks Ali to the mat. Fans rally for Ali already as Ali uses the ropes to flip through and wring Elias out. Elias gets up but Ali dodges, only to run into Elias’ arms. Elias pops Ali up but Ali slips out. Ali CHOPS but hurts his hand more than Elias’s chest. Elias throws Ali but Ali goes up and over and speeds things up. Ali shows off his agility and then rolls Elias up, ONE! Ali tries a jackknife, ONE! Elias kicks but is spun around into Ali’s heel kick! Elias bails out but Ali just builds speed to DIVE! But Elias catches him to ram him into the LED! Then suplex TOSSES Ali onto the ramp! Norfolk is fired up as Elias refreshes the count.

Elias goes after Ali but Ali hits back. Elias still throws him into the corner of the barrier! Then hip tosses him across the way! Elias trophy lifts to toss Ali into the timekeeper’s area! SmackDown goes picture in picture as Elias leaves Ali behind. Elias is fine with a count out now, but Ali stirs. Ali crawls over and gets to his feet. Ali flounders over at 8 and is in at 9! Elias drags Ali up to CHOP away in a corner! And throw body shots and stomps while he’s at it. The ref backs Elias off and Elias watches Ali crawl. Elias brings Ali up but Ali hits back. Elias rocks Ali with a big right forearm, then whips. Elias TOSSES Ali with a back drop! Cover, TWO! Elias keeps his cool and chokes Ali on the ropes. The ref backs Elias off again, but Elias comes back to put Ali in a corner. Elias whips corner to corner and then flapjack tosses Ali! Cover, TWO!

Ali grits his teeth while Elias looms over him. Elias drags Ali around by his hair but Ali hits back with body shots. Ali runs but into a BIG lariat! Elias covers, TWO! Elias drags Ali around to wrap on a ferocious chinlock. Ali endures and throws Elias, but Elias holds on. Ali tries again, but still Elias holds onto the headlock. Ali endures and gets up again. Elias leans on him to keep him down, but Ali powers up. SmackDown returns to single picture as Ali fights back with body shots. Elias knees low and whips, but Ali flapjack dropkicks Elias down! Fans fire up and Ali gets to his feet. Elias runs in but into a forearm! And then another! Ali CHOPS and forearms, then whips. Elias blocks and reverses, but Ali dodges and roundhouses! Ali slingshots, somersaults, facebuster! Cover, TWO! Elias rolls out of the ring but Ali just runs again, to DIVE! He rams Elias right into barriers! Both men are down, clutching limbs damaged by that collision.

Ali puts Elias in at 6 and climbs up at 7. Elias intercepts Ali on the top rope with forearms. Elias climbs up but Ali fights back! Ali headbutts Elias away, then adjusts to 450 the bad arm! Elias writhes in pain, but Ali is on him again. Elias shoves Ali away but gets a tornado takedown into a CROSSFACE!! Elias endures, Ali pulls back hard, but Elias still gets the ropebreak! Ali lets Elias go, but Ali goes at Elias in a corner. Elias sends Ali into buckles, then scoops into the Electric Chair. Spinning powerbomb! Cover, TWO!! But into a Stretch Muffler! Elias goes after that bad leg and Ali hangs upside-down. Elias stomps Ali’s head but Ali endures. Ali gets his own ropebreak! Elias lets Ali go but keeps stomping. Elias drags Ali over to a corner and swings the bad leg into the post! The ref reprimands Elias but the damage is done.

Elias drags Ali up but Ali fights back. Ali climbs and brings Elias up with him. But Elias SHOVES Ali away! Ali lands on his feet! The bad leg jams and Ali hobbles. Elias LEAPS, into a SUPERKICK!! Fans are losing their minds and cheering hard for Ali! The ring count climbs as Ali drags Elias up and in. Ali climbs with one good leg, leaps for another 450! But he FLOPS! Elias grabs the leg but Ali kicks with the good one! Elias still drags Ali around, and ducks the enziguri, to SMASH the knee! Ali writhes, Elias drags him up, fisherman to DRIFT AWAY! Elias wins!

Winner: Elias, by pinfall; advances to the semifinals

Elias wins without anyone’s help! Who will Walk With Elias in the next round?


Backstage interview with Samoa Joe.

The Samoan Submission Specialist survives the quarterfinals, only to be in a rare Triple Threat semifinal match. But he’s here tonight to explain the Triple Threat is an inconvenience. But his path of destruction will lead him to the crown. Joe is here to warn his future competition. Whatever SmackDown finalist he faces, they will be put to sleep, the WWE Universe will #BendTheKnee, and they will all call Samoa Joe the King of the Ring.


Aleister Black speaks.

“Well, if the mountain is not going to come ot me, then I am going to come to the mountain. I am heading down to that ring, and see if there is anyone MAN enough to pick. A fight. With me.” The Embodiment of the End is all out of patience! Who will #FadetoBlack tonight?


Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross VS Fire & Desire!

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions were technically on the losing side of the Championship Showcase last night, but only because Sasha Banks disqualified the match. Will they get back on track as a Clash of Championship challenge is right around the corner?

The teams sort out and Nikki starts with Mandy Rose. Mandy taunts by flaunting her figure against Nikki’s, then she whips her hair in Nikki’s face. Nikki throws forearms into Mandy’s face! Nikki whips but Mandy reverses, but Nikki tilt-o-whirl headscissors Mandy to a corner. Then hits a corner splash to bulldog! Cover, TWO! Nikki and Sonya talk trash but Mandy ROCKS Nikki with a right! Tag to Sonya and Sony throws hands. Sonya grinds her knee into Nikki then tags Mandy back in. Mandy and Sonya mug Nikki, then Mandy whips Nikki into the corner. Nikku hits Sonya down then dropkicks Mandy out! Fire & Desire regroup but Nikki climbs high! Nikki LEAPS for a crazy crossbody! SmackDown goes to break while Norfolk fires up with Nikki!

SmackDown returns as Sonya drags Nikki to the corner. Mandy tags in and she drags Nikki up just to push her down. She mocks Nikki to reach for Alexa but shoves her down again. “You will NEVER look like me!” Alexa says no one wants to look like Mandy. Nikki gives Mandy a jawbreaker! But she runs int Mandy’s arms. Mandy goes for the knee but misses! Hot tags to Sonya and Alexa! The Goddess rallies on the Gladiator Gal, standing STO! Double knee drop and a SLAP rocks Sonya, then a divine RIGHT! Cover, Mandy breaks it! Nikki runs in but gets a kick. Mandy goes for the underhooks, but Nikki fights free to crossbody Mandy down and out! Alexa gets up and goes back to Sonya, but Sonya kicks low to kick away.

Sonya knees then fireman’s carries, but Alexa fights free for a BLISS-DT! And then Alexa heads up top, only for Mandy to ram Nikki into apron! That distracts Alexa before she leaps, twisted Bliss gets KNEES! And then tag, Fire & Desire go high and low! Cover, Mandy & Sonya win!!

Winners: Fire & Desire, Mandy Rose pinning

Mandy and Sonya beat the tag team champions! This has to be the shortcut to being the Clash of Champions challengers. Will Mandy and Sonya take the titles from Alexa and Nikki so soon after getting them off the IIconics?


Samoa Joe bumps into Chad Gable.

Joe apologizes for not seeing the “little” guy. Gable says he’s trying to prepare for his King of the Ring match later tonight. Wait, Gable’s in King of the Ring? That can’t be, he’d look ridiculous out there. Like a kid playing dress-up with the crown and cape. The saddest part is that the jokes are tired, but they still hurt. Because Gable is mentally weak. There is no room for weakness in the kingdom. “Good luck, Bilbo.” Joe leaves and Gable does his best to shake it off.


Randy Orton is here!

The Viper has been doing and saying whatever he wants to Kofi Kingston, and has so far been getting away with much of it. Their WWE World Championship match is coming, and Orton is here tonight to speak again. “Clash of Champions is two weeks away. Which means in two weeks, you people are going to have a new WWE Champion.” And it means that in two weeks, Orton proves Kofi is a fraud not on Orton’s level and never has been. Just look at last week: Kofi fell for Orton’s trap hook, line and sinker. But the fans chant Kofi’s name! Orton says the best part about last week was that “sweet, sweet” sound of Kofi’s head bouncing off the floor. Orton has decimated the New Day and the Power of Positivity. And if you think he’s lying, just take a look at the replays!

Three weeks ago, Orton gave all three men of the New Day an RKO! Then the week after that, Orton made Kofi watch The Revival SMASH Xavier Woods’ knee. And then just last week was the trap Orton mentioned, giving Kofi a draping DDT to drive Kofi into the floor. The Viper smirks as he watches his handiwork. Orton will tell Kofi what he’s thinking this week: no more games, no more traps, no waiting for Clash of Champions even! Face Orton like a man here tonight! Orton waits, and the music hits! But no one comes out? Actually, the Revival are beating Kofi up as they move to the stage! It was another trap after all! The #TopGuys club and punch Kofi down the ramp, and there is no New Day to back Kofi up with the injuries Orton’s been giving them. But Kofi manages to fight Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder off! So Orton attacks to take Kofi down himself!

Orton puts Kofi in the ring and drags him around. “STUPID!” Stomp to the leg. “STUPID!” Stomp to the other leg. “STUPID!” Stomp to the hand, then chest! Dash & Dawson get Kofi up for Orton so that Orton can tell him to his face. At Clash of Champions, Orton beats Kofi once and for all in front of everyone, with the there most devastating letters in sports entertainment. But Kofi fights out and fights back! But he’s in a 3v1 and The Revival just mug Kofi on the mat. Orton grimaces as the Revival bring Kofi up. They shove, RKO MACHINE! Orton and the #TopGuys pose together on the corner. Will these three all have titles come the end of Clash of Champions?


WWE has set a match for Clash of Champions!

After finding damning evidence that it was Erick Rowan behind the attempts on Roman Reigns’ life, the Big Red and the Big Dog will have a grudge match to get to the bottom of this! Will Roman get answers out of Rowan while also getting a win? Or will this mystery only take more twists and turns the deeper Roman goes down the rabbit hole?


WWE and Connor’s Cure fight Pediatric Cancer!

Join in and help crush cancer once and for all!


King of the Ring Quarterfinals: Chad Gable VS Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega!

Everyone seems to think the former Olympian has little chance of winning a tournament this big. But El Idolo is 100% confident he will be El Rey de WWE soon enough. Will Gable catch Almas off guard like he did Shelton Benjamin? Or is this too tall a task for the tournament’s #1 underdog?

Vega speaks to Gable as one “vertically challenged” superstar to another, she respects and admires how Gable overcomes the odds. And though there are lost dog ads for competition for Almas, Gable could be the next King of the Ring. If Almas wasn’t in the tournament, of course. So unfortunately, Almas will beat Gable tonight. But there is no shame in losing to the future King Andrade! So just keep going, little engine that could. The bell rings, and the final quarterfinal match begins.

Almas ties up with Gable and gets Gable on the ropes. But Gable comes back to waistlock and throw Almas down! They get back up but Almas elbows out hard. Almas wrenches Gable’s arm and whips, but Gable goes up and over to sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Almas kicks low and brings Gable in for a powerbomb lift. Gable resists and slips out to an arm-drag! Then a monkey flip! Fans fire up behind Gable as Gable goes corner to corner. But Almas catches Gable to toss Gable out! SmackDown goes picture in picture as Almas dusts off his hands from dumping out Gable.

Gable slowly gets up while Vega applauds Almas. Almas goes out to CHOP Gable then knee him against barriers. Almas whips Gable hard into other barriers, then soaks up the heat. Almas drags Gable up and into the ring, to then run and basement dropkick Gable in the back! Cover, TWO! Almas wraps on a chinlock right away and grinds Gable down. Gable endures and fights his way up. Gable fights back with body shots but Almas throws him down by his head! Almas CHOPS Gable and Gable winces. Almas goes after the arm, then back suplexes. Gable slips out and sees Almas run in! Gable tries to throw Almas in but it’s more like a full on collision from the two! Almas still crashes into buckles but Gable took just as much damage in that. The referee checks and they’re both okay to continue.

SmackDown returns to single picture as forearms start flying between both men. Almas CHOPS Gable then whips. Gable reverses, breaks free and throws big hands! Gable has Almas in the corner, he ducks the clothesline to mule kick and rolling kick! Vega is worried as Gable hits a running rolling neckbreaker! Fans fire up with Gable as he stalks Almas. Gable wristlocks and chicken wings for an overhead suplex! Bridging cover, TWO! Almas escapes and Vega grows frustrated. Gable watches Almas, waistlocks but Almas bucks him off to BOOT him back! Almas hops up but Gable SHORYUKENS! Gable climbs up while Elias watches backstage. Almas fights the superplex off and puts Gable in the Tree of Woe! Almas WOE STOMPS Gable down! Cover, TWO!! Gable still lives and that frustrates both Almas and Vega!

Almas drags Gable up and hammerlocks, but Gable slips out to a waistlock. Almas standing switches but Gable victory rolls. TWO and Almas knees low. Almas suplexes for uno amigo, then dos amigos. Fans chant “Eddie! Eddie!” as Almas shimmies the shoulders, but Gable waistlocks for a German Suplex! Then another! Gable shouts out the Gold Medalist but Almas elbows free. Almas gets the third suplex! He puts Gable in a drop zone and heads for the corner but his back slows him down. Almas moonsaults, lands on his feet, but gets knees on the second! Fans are fired up as Gable goes up top! Vega freaks out as Gable MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Almas survives Gable’s other shout out to Kurt Angle! But Gable keeps his focus as he watches Almas stand. Waistlock but another elbow sends him away. Almas hip tosses Gable into buckles!

Almas has the knees ready, runs corner to corner but gets buckles! CHAOS THEORY!! But Vega is distracting the ref during the bridge!! Gable lets go in frustration, and Almas is ready, boot to ELBOW! Hammerlock, but Gable powers otu! Rolling clutch! GABLE WINS!!

Winner: Chad Gable, by pinfall; advances to the semifinals

Who came up short?! Because it wasn’t Gable! Vega is in shock, and Norfolk is thunderous for Gable as he continues on! Will the smallest superstar with the biggest heart be the one to wear the crown? Or will Elias make him #DriftAway next round?


Aleister Black VS ???

The Dark Knight of WWE said he would come looking a the fight, and he has come.  Who answered the call of the Embodiment of the End? We find out after the break.

SmackDown returns, and it is the Gold Standard that stands before Aleister! Shelton Benjamin circles with Black at the bell!

Benjamin knees low and whips but Aleister dodges and springboards. Benjamin dodges but Aleister sits down cross-legged. Aleister dodges Benjamin’s kick, but Benjamin narrowly avoids Black Mass! Aleister stares daggers at Benjamin, then gets him with the knee trigger! Benjamin bails out but Aleister follows to throw forearms. Aleister puts Benjamin in the ring and punches him away. Benjamin returns the knee with one of his own! Aleister goes down and Benjamin grins. Benjamin goes after Aleister on the outside now with haymakers. Benjamin puts Aleister in and runs at the corner. Aleister elbows and kicks back! Benjamin knees in return, then watches Aleister wobble. Aleister still blocks one punch and throws strike after strike. Benjamin avoids the knee, goes for Dragon Whip, but gets the BLACK MASS! Cover, Aleister wins!

Winner: Aleister Black, by pinfall

Black beats Gold as Aleister wins the fight he called for. But this will not satisfy Aleister’s appetite for confrontation. Will Aleister only be vindicated once he possesses championship gold?


Drake Maverick sneaks around the bowels of the arena, Renee Michelle in tow.

They need to get out of here fast, or superstars will come for his WWE 24/7 Championship. Well they’re not going to do that in the boiler room! But speaking off, here come the Singh Brothers! Sunil misses his ambush attack, but Sunil rolls Maverick up! TWO, and Maverick runs! But look out! Gran Metalik rides in on a trunk! Well, that was easy to avoid, actually… But Curt Axel is here! Roll up, TWO! Maverick hops a trunk and rams it into Axel, but Bo Dallas rolls Maverick! Bo Dallas wins!!

Winner: Bo Dallas, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

The B Team celebrates Bo’s win! It’s time to #BOLIEVE again! But the chase is on, too. And Maverick lost the title, and a shot at consummating, again. Will Maverick ever get this right?


Shinsuke Nakamura and Sami Zayn are here!

The Artist and his like-minded spokesperson are in Norfolk, but the “parasites” won’t get their kicks signing along to the music. Tonight isn’t about the fans, it’s about Shinsuke, THE WWE Intercontinental Champion! Shinsuke is up against one “Andrew Howard”? No that’s not right? Well it doesn’t matter what his name is! As far as tonight goes, Howard might as well be The Miz. And everyone is in store for just a taste of what happens to THE Miz at Clash of Champions! Referee, do your damn job and ring that bell.

Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Sami Zayn VS “Andrew Howard”!

The bell rings, Nakamura and “Howard” circle. Sami talks trash on the mic as Nakamura fires off on “Howard.” The kicks make Sami laugh in glee. Nakamura throws vicious forearms, but “Howard’ SLAPS Nakamura. “Big mistake, son!” Nakamura fires off knees on the man as Sami taunts “The Miz.” Nakamura stomps away, then puts the substitute on the top rope. Sami’s favorite: Top Shelf Knee! And we all know what’s next: KINSHASA! Cover, Nakamura wins!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall

“That’s how it’s done!” Sami shouts. But does Sami think it’ll really be that easy when the real Miz gets to fight Nakamura?

But wait, the 24/7 Championship chase spills out into the ring from the crowd! Axel tries to defend Bo but the Singh Brothers and Gran Metalik appear. They swarm the ring, and Metalik throws the Bollywood Boys out! But Axel tackles Metalik to the mat! Wait, Maverick comes up and gets Bo! Maverick wins!!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

Rockstar Spud has his title back! And he throws The B-Team out! Maverick makes a run for it as he celebrates. But wait! The coat rack for the King of the Ring cape, is JUST R-TRUTH!! Truth sneaks up, rolls Maverick up, Truth wins!!

Winner: R-Truth, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

The 14-time champion! The greatest of all time! The chase is on again, but will Maverick get the belt back before the end of the night?


Daniel Bryan is here!

And as he stated in text statement, he demands an apology for both the Spear and the assumption that he had anything to do with Erick Rowan’s actions. Bryan takes up a mic as fans chant and duel. “It finally looks like we have a group of people who believe me.” Because Bryan knows how it looks to everyone else when there is video footage of Rowan attacking Roman! People think Bryan is guilty by association! But Bryan has said this entire time that he has had nothing to do with it. There are a lot of people who may not like Bryan, may not like Bryan’s opinions and message and mission, but what NOBODY can say is that Bryan is a liar! Bryan has never lied to any of the fans. And the truth is, fans are right that Bryan HATES liars.

So here is what Bryan wants. Bryan wants an apology for Roman Reigns. Not just for the accusations, not just for the Spear, but for calling Bryan a liar! And here comes Roman! Roman stares Bryan down, but Rowan attacks from behind! The Big Red rams the Big Dog into barriers! And then steel steps! Then he drags Roman up to TOSS at the apron edge! Roman collapses and Bryan pulls Rowan off. But Rowan shoves Bryan away! Rowan is enraged as he lifts and BOMBS Roman at the post! But Rowan isn’t done there. He puts Roman in the ring and looms over him. Norfolk rallies behind Roman, but Rowan clamps on the IRON CLAW! And then, the SLAM! Rowan takes up the mic to tell “Big Dog, get up.”

Did Roman think Bryan did this? The joke’s on him and all of us. Rowan waves at Bryan. Bryan is just as bad as the fans! He thought he could control Rowan?! Rowan is no one’s puppet. Bryan slapped Rowan over and over again. So maybe Bryan should step into the ring and show how much of a man he is now! Rowan dares Bryan to do it! And then he tells Roman, “I’m proud of what I’ve done to you.” Rowan was proud of the accidents and the hit-and-run. But Rowan is most proud of the pain Roman will feel at Clash of Champions. And then, he throws Roman out of the ring, to go out and take up the other steel steps! Rowan aims at Roman, to SMASH him in the face with the steps! Then Rowan tears the cover off the announce desk.

Bryan tries to stop Rowan again, saying they’re friends! Rowan won’t be controlled, so Bryan SLAPS him! Rowan claws and SLAMS Bryan through the desk!! “Nobody tells me what to do!! Never again!!” Rowan is his own monster now! Will he soon make this his Yard? Or will the Big Dog recover to take a bite out of the Big Redwood?



My Thoughts:

A pretty great SmackDown tonight! And with a natural opener of Bayley explaining herself. There is some coherence to what Bayley is saying. She is putting her friendship with Sasha and her desire to be the best before being nice, and in a very Heel way, she twists her actions around. The NXT Four Horsewomen are all still on Clash of Champions, and they are both going towards the PPV with a lot of momentum after the Heel turn and them beating down Charlotte together. I feel like this is an all or nothing for Bayley & Banks, especially if they try to help each other. Now this gets rid of my idea of a Survivor Series showdown of friends turned enemies, at least right now. But this could turn into a situation where Bayley & Banks have both singles titles, and go after the tag titles together. They could even do it at Hell in a Cell in Hell in a Cell. Bliss-Cross lost tonight, but I can’t see them losing the titles so soon, despite how good Mandy and Sonya looked in the win.

Tonight’s King of the Ring matches were amazing! I was a bit surprised Elias won so cleanly against Ali, but it was still an incredible showing from both. And then, with Samoa Joe rubbing in Gable’s insecurities, it was great for Gable to win tonight. He and Almas had an amazing match, and this was one of those star-making moments. Gable VS Elias can be and hopefully will be a great match to keep up with Raw’s Triple Threat next week. And at this point, Samoa Joe VS Gable might be our King of the Ring finals at Clash of Champions. And should that happen, I definitely feel like Joe wins, but after Gable puts on one hell of a match with him. Black VS Benjamin tonight was good for mostly filler, so hopefully Aleister gets to fight for a title after Clash. Nakamura and Sami were alright in squashing and trash talking the jobber, but this build of them and Miz hasn’t been that great. I’m sure the match makes up for it, but still. At least Sami’s going all in on being an obnoxious manager.

Orton’s segment with Kofi went about as expected. He talks trash, tricks Kofi, and stands tall. Why haven’t they made their world title match a No Disqualifications match? Sure, that opens things up for The Revival to attack Kofi with Orton, but the story feels like it should escalate their matches. Unless we’re saving such a thing for Kofi VS Orton 2019 round 3 for a Hell in a Cell match. The 24/7 Championship stuff tonight was great! And I love that it technically main-evented with Truth’s greatest reveal yet! This title will never not be hilarious. And then an honestly great moment to make up for last week’s awkwardness, Rowan did it for Rowan! He is the mastermind! But I feel like WWE advertised Roman VS Rowan too soon. I get that Roman would want a fight with Rowan just on video evidence, but tonight should be the motivation behind making it for Clash.

My Score: 8.5/10

Mitchell’s WWE Raw Results & Report! (9/26/22)

Bianca’s the readiEST Raw Women’s Champion!



WWE Raw 2022

Damage Control looks to do some damage!

With Bayley coming after the Raw Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules, Bianca Belair looks to remove a pawn from play in Iyo Sky!


  • Bianca Belair w/ Asuka & Alexa Bliss VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control; Bianca wins.
  • Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio; Rey wins.
  • Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy; Kevin & Gargano win.
  • Handicap Match: Omos w/ MVP VS Joey Gibson & Fred Lester; Omos wins.
  • Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day; Riddle wins.


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

The RawEST Women’s Champion has the Empress of Tomorrow and the Five Foot Fury backing her up because we all know DMG CTRL doesn’t roll alone! Bianca gets the mic to say, “Y’know, Bayley, I really considered coming out here and challenging you again tonight. I mean, why wait for Extreme Rules? But then I remembered that you would never make this just about you and I. And even if you did come out here and accepted my challenge, it wouldn’t be you alone. I learn from my mistakes, and it was not about to be three on one again, especially not after last week.”

Bayley could’ve faced Alexa 1v1 but no. Iyo & Dakota had to interfere again because Bayley can’t fight her battles alone. So Bayley, Bianca will say this: If Bayley wants the title at Extreme Rules, then good luck. Because her girls will be watching Bayley’s girls to make sure this stays between the two of them. But here comes DMG CTRL makes their way out. Bayley thought Bianca would’ve learned her lesson last week. This will never be just about the two of them because it is bigger than the two of them. Bayley wouldn’t expect the fans to understand, either.

Bianca was groomed, handpicked and trained to be a champion. But those like DMG CTRL had to groom themselves, train themselves, and dreamt about this since they were 12 years old! Bayley said she would take over the WWE and that is what she’s doing! Yes, Bianca is in this position, she’s thriving, she’s accomplished all these things, but she was placed, picked, chosen. “Girl… Uh-uh.” Bianca has earned everything, nothing was handed to her. She’s here because she’s been showing up and showing out. Where’s Bayley been? Rehabbing?

Now, Bianca is sorry Bayley got hurt but she’s not sorry Bayley came back to Bianca as champion. Bianca will not belittle herself to go down to Bayley’s level. Bayley tells fans to shut up! She WAS injured, she DID get hurt. She couldn’t even walk 10 months ago, but she taught herself how to walk again, and how to run again. And Bayley pinned Bianca at Clash at the Castle! Something NO ONE had done in over 300 days! So yes, Bayley was injured, that’s why she wasn’t here. So fall in line like everyone else!

Bianca says no no no. Last time Bianca checked, Bayley WAS here when Bianca reached the top of her game. When Bianca main evented WrestleMania, Bayley WAS here. And the last 1v1 match these two had, Bianca KOD’d Bayley onto a ladder. Bianca gets it, though. She understands why Bayley returned with back-up. It’s because Bayley wasn’t ready to face a champion like Bianca alone. Bayley says, “Y’know what?” But then fans taunt and boo and that upsets Bayley.

“We’re not talking about the past, okay? The past is the past and I’m sick of you running your mouth.” But Bayley just got a great idea! At Extreme Rules, she feels like winning the Raw Women’s Championship in a LADDER MATCH. Fans cheer that ide and Bianca even smiles. Consider the ante up. But since Bianca can’t have Bayley, she’ll get extreme with Iyo tonight! Let’s go! Iyo nods and hands her belt over to Kai. She calls for the ref while the others exit, and the bell rings!

Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Last week, when Seth Rollins attacked Matt Riddle, that helped The Judgement Day defeat him and Rey. Part of that was also Dominik daring Rey to hit him, even kneeling and begging him to do it. What is going on in Rey’s mind right now? Kevin Patrick’s a father, yeah? So he knows there’s nothing like holding your newborn child in your arms. Wanting to give them the world, watching them grow up, envisioning the kind of person they’ll become, always wanting the best for them, no matter what. Rey will always love Dom, and he will never, under any circumstances, fight him.

But last week, when Dom gave him that chance, Rey wondered what happened to the kid he raised. He could not recognize this man Dom has become. Rey knows deep down inside, this is not Dominik. It can’t be! This is Rhea manipulating Dom’s heart and mind. But Rey can’t let that sway his focus. Tonight, Rey takes on Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins, and he needs to be at his best. Rey’s had his fair share of battles with Rollins, and he knows how savage Rollins can be. Rollins wanted to do more than just injure Riddle last week.

Rey may have mercy for his own flesh and blood, but with everything going on his head right now, there is no mercy for Rollins. Will the King of Lucha be able to take out all his anger on the Visionary?

The Miz meets with security backstage.

“Alright, gentlemen. I have recruited you for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am offering a prize package worht up to one MILLION dollars, including but not limited to an exclusive cameo in the upcoming spinoff movie of the Marine franchise, gift cards accepted at most department stores, a certified pre-owned vehicle, and career advice from yours truly, which in and of itself is worth $2 million.”

Now he did not want big, bulky, muscular dumb security, he wants smart and stealthy! That is why he chose them. They are not just elite security professionals, no! They are MIZFORCE! Say it with him! “MIZFORCE!” Again! “MIZFORCE!” One more time! “MIZFORCE!” Now go! Find He Who Shall Not Be Named and make sure he is not here! GO GO GO! The guards hurry off, but will MIZFORCE find Dexter Lumis before Lumis finds Miz?

Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio!

The Visionary has pushed things with Matt Riddle so far, they’re going into the FIGHT PIT at Extreme Rules! Will Rollins sharpen his edge at the expense of the King of Lucha? Or will he suffer for everything Judgement Day has put Rey through instead?

Before the match, Rollins gets the mic and fans sing his song, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Rollins welcomes Edmonton to Monday Night Rollins! And he is our host for the festivities. He is a visionary, he is a revolutionary, he is Seth “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins should be here as the NEW United States Champion, But the only reason he is not, that reason has a name that Rollins doesn’t even wanna say. But he is not champion now because of Matt Riddle!

Last week, Rollins had Lashley in the center of the ring, dead to rights, but Riddle made Rollins take his eye off the ball for one single second, and it cost him! Riddle has been a thorn in Rollins’ side for months, but that is the last time! In two weeks, they finish this at Extreme Rules inside… THE FIGHT PIT! Fans like the sound of that! Some even chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” But then the singing of “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” drowns that out. Rollins has to be honest, though, this past week, Rollins has heard the whispers and read the tweets. No one thinks he stands a chance!

Everyone says the Fight Pit is Riddle’s match. Rollins had to go home and take a long look in the mirror. Rollins came to the harsh conclusion that he’s SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! It doesn’t matter what kind of match it is! Cage match, Hell in a Cell, Tables, Ladders, Rollins has been in every single type of match you can imagine, and he’s won ’em all! As good as Riddle may be inside the cage, he has nothing on Rollins. Rollins has one thing Riddle will never have: his brain! His Einstein level acumen for the fight game!

Extreme Rules may be Rollins’ first time inside the Fight Pit, but he’ll tell us this. “When all the dust settles, Riddle is gonna be flat on his back, and the entire world is gonna be singing my song, calling me the King of the Fight Pit!” Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins knows Riddle is watching, so Riddle better take notes. Rollins is going to give “Father of the Year,” Rey Mysterio the beating he is too much of a coward to give his own son! HAHAHAHAH! But with that Rey makes his entrance! Will Rey show who’s really the coward here?

Rey DROPKICKS Rollins the moment he’s in the ring! The ref tries to stop Rey but Rollins bails out. Rollins is furious and throwing a fit, but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Rollins puts Rey in a corner to grind his forearms in. Rollins talks trash, stomps away and digs his boot in, but the ref counts. Rollins lets off, and wipes the blood from the cut on his forehead. That’s from Rey spiking Rollins off steel steps. Rollins CLAWS Rey’s back, then he fishhooks Rey’s nose! Rollins lets off as the ref reprimands, but he ROCKS Rey to a corner. Rollins whips Rey corner to corner but Rey goes up and over then tilt-o-whirls and RANAS! Rey fires off on Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses, only for Rey to KICK him away. Rey runs but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER!

Rey writhes and Rollins seethes while fans rally. Rollins stalks Rey to ropes, drags him up and ROCKS him in the back. Rollins looms over Rey, drags Rey up and ROCKS him again. Then Rollins reels Rey in for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Rollins snarls as Rey crawls to the apron. Rollins drags Rey up but Rey counter punches! Rey fires off haymakers, slingshots up and over to a sunset flip, TWO! Rollins CLOBBERS Rey! Fans rally and duel as Rollins stalks Rey.

Rollins kicks Rey around, then kicks him to a corner. Rollins CHOPS Rey, whips him corner to corner, then runs in to forearm smash! Rey flops down and Rollins conducts the “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Fans boo, too, though, and that upsets Rollins. Rey stands up, Rollins runs corner to corner, but Rey dodges! Rollins hits buckles and then Rey fires off haymakers! Rey RAMS Rollins, whips but Rollins reverses. Rey drop toeholds to send Rollins into buckles! Rey then climbs up and rains down fists on that bloody forehead! Fans count all the way to TEN, and Rey gives us some Latino Heat!

Rey follows Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses. Rey holds ropes, elbows back then springboards, but Rollins catches him to a fireman’s carry! GUTBUSTER DROP! Rey flounders but Rollins drags him up to slide him out! Rey belly flops onto the floor and Rollins goes out after him. But here comes Dominik, with a chair! Is Dom here to attack Rollins for their past? Or is he here to watch his father suffer? Dom pats Rollins on the shoulder, so it’s the latter as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins whips Rey HARD into the corner! Dom is sitting ringside now to watch as Rollins drags Rey out onto the apron. Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, then lets off to line up a shot. Rollins BOOTS Rey into the ring! Rollins offers a fist bump, and Dom takes it! Fans boo them both but Rollins goes into the ring. Rollins tells Dom to watch this. Rollins drags Rey up to snap suplex! Uno Amigo! And then another snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Rollins drags Rey up again, gives some Latino Heat, and suplexes again, but Rey throws knees! Rey makes it a DDT!

Dom isn’t as happy watching now with Rey and Rollins both down. Rey gets up, adjusts his mask and goes to a corner. Rey climbs, but Rollins Electric Chair Lifts him off the corner! Rollins turns Rey around but Rey RANAS Rollins into the buckles! Fans fire up while both men are down again! Rey goes to the apron and fans fire up as he climbs. But Rollins ROCKS Rey first! Rollins climbs up, brings Rey up, but Rey throws body shots! Rey HEADBUTTS Rollins away, but Rollins springs right back up! Rey fights with body shots and shoves Rollins away again! Then SEATED SENTONS!

Rey slides under but Rollins catches him, only for Rey to victory roll! TWO, and Rey dropkicks Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins gets up to get Rey in position, BUCKLE BOMB!

Rey flounders, Rollins aims, but Rey avoids the stomp! Rollins kicks low, but Rey fights the underhooks!

Fans taunt Dom with “Dominik’s Useless!” Rey dropkick Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins ducks the 619! Rey hurries after Rollins but Rollins shoulders in!

SUPER STEINER AFTER ALL!! Rollins flounders to ropes, 619!! But Rey hit Rollins so hard, Rollins flounders to the far side of the ring! Rey hurries to the apron, and he FLYING RANAS Rollins down again! But Dom gets up and has the chair! Rey turns around to see Dom, and the ref tells Dom no. Dom drops the chair, but then dares Rey to use it now!

Fans boo, Dom is just distracting Rey! Rollins distracts the ref, RHEA RIPLEY POSTS Rey!! Dom puts Rey in the ring for Rollins to CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs as he puts Rey in a PERUVIAN NECKTIE!! Rey is OUT, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by submission

The Visionary gets to show off his new hold, not that he had to! That was a message to Riddle that Rollins can grapple just like him. But it also shows that The Judgement Day had to help Rollins out. Will The Visionary survive when he has to beat The Bro on his own? As for Rey, is there no reaching Dom anymore?

But speaking of Matt Riddle, he’s watching this backstage.

The Bro’s attention is trained on Rollins, so when someone pats him on the shoulder, he freaks out! Oh, it’s Bobby Lashley. Don’t scare him like that, bro. Didn’t think you were silent but deadly. You gotta keep your head on a swivel around here, y’know? Lashley gets it. He just wants to wish Riddle luck against Damian Priest tonight, not that Riddle needs it. And Lashley also heard what Rollins was saying about The Fight Pit. The MMA guys know what it’s like, but Rollins doesn’t. It’s either you tap out, or you get knocked out. That’s what Rollins fears, so don’t let him get away on this one.

Riddle says he’s not letting Rollins get away. Riddle will fight him, submit him, knock him out, Rollins ain’t going anywhere. Alright. One more thing: Lashley knows Riddle wanted to help Lashley last week, but he should never do that again. “My bad, Bobby.” Well, Riddle has Rollins where he wants him, so knock his teeth out! Damn straight, bro! Riddle is fired up now. Will The Bro take the fight to the Punisher before entering the Pit?

Johnny Gargano & Kevin Owens head for gorilla.

Along the way, they find one of the MIZFORCE guards knocked out cold! Is that a bad sign for The Miz?

Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy!

AJ Styles heads to gorilla.

More MIZFORCE guards are down and out but Styles shrugs it off. Kevin Patrick finds him, though, and asks that before facing Sami Zayn, can Styles explain why he rejected Finn Balor’s offer to join Judgement Day? Has everyone forgotten what The Judgement Day did to Styles? To get respect, you gotta show respect. Styles has been on his own for a while now and… Finn appears! Finn says he comes in peace as Styles’ friend. We all know the importance of having friends around here, right?

Finn says The Judgement Day has achieved so much already. But with Styles, him and Finn together, they could change the business again! Okay, hear him out. Styles has a match with Sami Zayn, right? And Sami’s got back up in Solo Sikoa. So as a friend, the Judgement Day would like to offer Styles an olive branch. Styles says they’ll watch his back? Yeah! Styles says he can watch is own back.

The Nigerian Giant continues to dominate, just how many men will be sent to the slaughter this time?

Theory regroups with The Alpha Academy backstage.

What happened out there? He thought they were the masters of success! Where was the success? Gable says his number one guy, Otis, hasn’t been 100% since throwing down with that “moron,” Braun Strowman! If not for that two ton doofus, the Academy would’ve schooled those fools. Well y’know what, Chad? It would’ve been good to know that before he got hit in the jaw. But they gotta get even with Kevin & Gargano. Gargano’s not gonna embarrass Theory twice in a dump like Canada!

But then Theory gets a phone call. Hello? It’s for Gable. It is? Well, okay. Gable is in high demand. Hello? “A two ton doofus, huh? Bet you think you’re real funny.” Braun promises Gable he won’t be laughing next week, beause the Monster of All Monsters is coming for him in his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota! That way, they won’t have to fly Gable’s body home for his funeral! Sh-sh-shoosh please… Theory says Gable’s got this. But Otis, Gargano tried to big dog you out there and you gotta let him know who you are! What you represent! What you’re gonna do!

Next week, Otis VS Gargano, and it’ll be Gargano’s last match because of Otis! It’ll be the end of Gargano’s very short and sad career. Otis is fired up but Gable is dreading next week. Will the Academy’s teacher go into early retirement?

Finn Balor talks with Judgement Day backstage.

They all trust each other, right? Then trust him about Styles. Styles is gonna come around. Kevin Patrick walks over to ask Damian Priest if he might hold back against his former friend in Riddle tonight. Rhea asks back, “What’s with the dumbass questions?” Priest says yeah, what’s he supposed to say? Of course he’s NOT holding back. And he’s gonna have zero remorse! KP said it himself, Riddle’s a former friend. This right here, this is his crew! This is his family. Rhea’s said it time and again, the Judgement Day runs Raw! So as far as Priest is concerned, Riddle is just running his brains into the clouds like always.

Just look at this past year! Riddle spent most of it pretending to be Randy Orton! And now Rollins has Riddle so confused, Riddle thinks he’s in the UFC. “Yo, Riddle. You’re not a Viper. You’re not a cage fighter anymore. And you sure as hell aren’t my friend. Tonight like everyone else, you Riddle, will fall while the Judgement Day will rise. Nothing personal, bro.” The Judgement Day laughs, but will they have the last laugh in the end?

Raw returns again and Sami has Styles up top. Sami climbs up after him but Styles throws haymakers. Styles hops up and sunset flips but Sami holds on! But Styles pulls him form the corner and into position! Sami kicks free of The Clash! Styles staggers around, runs in, but into a CORNER EXPLODER! Sami hurries and runs corner to corner, but Styles bails out. Fans boo but Sami hurries after Styles. Sami puts Styles in, but Styles catches Sami and rolls him! CALF CRUSHER!! Sami endures, reaches out, but Styles cranks way back! Sami still reaches, claws forward, pushes through and gets the ROPEBREAK!

Solo nods as Styles lets Sami go. Sami clutches his knee and both men slowly rise. Styles storms over to Sami but into a JAWBREAKER! Styles leans on the ropes, but he runs to sunset flip! And then deadlift into position! Sami flails, gets in the ropes, and he back drops Styles up and out! Styles holds onto the ropes, ROCKS Sami, but Sami grabs hair! The ref reprimands, Sami lets go and distracts the ref, and Solo YANKS Styles down for an APRON URENAGE! Fans boo but Sami smiles as he knows Solo just helped him out. HELLUVA KICK!! Cover, Sami wins!!

Winner: Sami Zayn, by pinfall

Getting an assist in the win, Sami really IS in the Bloodline now! Solo “The Enforcer” does his job, will he, Sami and all of the Bloodline take over WWE?

Wait, here comes The Judgement Day! And of course, Finn has a mic to say, “AJ, AJ, AJ. It pains me to see you like this, bro. And I can’t help but think that if you had accepted our offer earlier, the outcome of this match may have been a little bit different. You deserve so much better than this, AJ. You deserve it, man. So seeing as I’m a fair and generous person, I’m asking you as a friend to rise up and join the Judgement Day.” Finn offers a hand, Styles thinks for a moment, but he stands up on his own. Finn throws up the Too Sweet, maybe Styles will accept that. Styles throws up the middle finger instead!

So Finn attacks Styles! As do Priest and Dom! They mug Styles, Rhea gets a chair, and Finn puts the chair around Styles’ head! Rhea holds it in place, Finn runs up, but Finn stops short of the stomp. Finn says he could’ve ended Styles’ career, but he’s Styles’ friend. This is NOT what friends do. The Judgement Day loom over Styles, having given him the most menacing of ultimatums. Will the Phenomenal One stay a lone wolf? Or will he join the wolf pack that is The Judgement Day?

Bianca, Alexa & Asuka are having fun backstage.

They’re all excited after Bianca’s big win over Iyo Sky, and then Candice finds them! Candice hopes Bianca shuts Bayley up at Extreme Rules. Oh, Bianca definitely will. And congratulations on the debut victory! Candice thanks Bianca, but then “DING DONG! Uh, why don’t you two shut up?” Bayley says compliments are just jealousy in disguise. And bullies are just cowards in disguise. Oh, Candice’s feeling real confident after one win here, huh? They can change that. Dakota says Bayley has the title match to worry about. Candice says Dakota doesn’t.

Bayley knows Candice is new here, but DMG CTRL runs things. If Candice wants a match with Dakota, just wait for next week. And Bianca, see you at Extreme Rules. Oh, they don’t have to wait for that. Things get heated but everyone backs down. Will the Poison Pixie sting #CobraKai? Will this all explode before Extreme Rules?

Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day!

Rollins made sure Rey & Riddle didn’t win last week, but Riddle will let him off the hook until Extreme Rules. Will the Bro get his “brovenge” on the Punisher? Or will the Judgement Day just keep on rolling roughshod through Raw?

The bell rings and Riddle circles with Priest. The fans chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” and Riddle smirks. Riddle and Priest tie up, Priest puts Riddle in the corner but Riddle pushes back. They go along the ropes, into another corner, but Priest shoves Riddle down. Priest dares Riddle to come back and they circle again. They tie up, Priest puts Riddle on ropes but Riddle hops on to go after an arm! Riddle gets a HOVERBOARD, but Priest powers through to suplex! Riddle slips around to a SLEEPER! Priest gasps as he reaches for ropes but Riddle squeezes tight. Priest BACKPACK SENTONS!

Priest grins as he’s free, but Riddle springs to life to get the SLEEPER again! Priest scrambles to a corner, the ref counts the ropebreak, and Riddle lets off. Priest swings a back elbow but Riddle gets away. Fans cheer as the two reset and circle again. They tie up, Riddle waistlocks to headlock and hits a takeover. Priest pushes Riddle to the headscissors and holds tight. Riddle reaches out, moves around, and pushes free. Priest avoids the Penalty Kick and Riddle says it was that close. Priest shoves Riddle so Riddle shoves back. Riddle fires palm strikes but Priest bobs ‘n’ weaves to evade!

Priest swings, Riddle bobs ‘n’ weaves now! Riddle ducks Priest’s heel kick but Priest avoids the Final Flash. Riddle ducks the spin kick, but Priest blocks a kick to trip Riddle! Riddle avoids the stomps to literally kick Priest’s butt! Riddle kips up and fans fire up as Riddle dares Priest to bring it. PRiest laughs and applauds, but swings on him! Riddle catches Priest to a GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! BROTON! Cover, ONE!! Priest gets to ropes but Riddle storms up on him. Riddle CHOPS Priest, KICKS away on him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Riddle goes side to side, Priest SPIN KICKS him down!

The Judgement Day cheers but the fans boo as Priest rains down forearms! Priest paces, he drags Riddle up and says, “You’re trying to embarrass me on my birthday?!” Oh, well happy birthday, Priest. He TOSSES Riddle to a corner! But Riddle blocks the haymaker into a TRIANGLE, which he makes into a RANA that throws Priest up and out! Riddle is on the apron, Finn gets Priest out of the way, meaning Finn takes the PENALTY KICK! Riddle LEAPS at Priest, but Priest DECKS him out of the sky! Priest then suplexes for a BROKEN ARROW onto the barriers!! Riddle shouts in pain while Priest roars triumphantly, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Priest keeps Riddle down with a motorcycle stretch. Priest taunts Riddle, “You want more pain? Yeah, you want more pain.” Priest digs his knee in deeper but Riddle powers up! Priest shifts to a chinlock but Riddle fires body shots. Priest CLUBS Riddle down and grabs the arms for more of the motorcycle. Rhea wants Priest to make Riddle pay, but Riddle KANGAROO KICKS! Riddle fires off palm strikes and a BOOT! Then he shoots around, ripcords, FINAL FLASH! Priest goes to a corner, Riddle kips up and runs in to forearm smash! Riddle goes side to side, another forearm smash!

Riddle reels Priest in but Priest fights the clinch. Priest shoves Riddle down, runs at him, but into the BROSPLODER! Riddle goes up and out to PENALTY KICK! Then a FLOATING BRO ATTACK! Direct hit and both men are down! Fans fire up, Riddle stands and puts Priest in the ring. Riddle hurries in, he blocks a kick to give a kick and he gets Priest up for a POWERBOMB! Flip over to a FINAL FLASH! Cover, TWO!! Priest survives and Judgement Day breathes easier. Riddle goes to a corner, he climbs up top, but Priest SHOVES Riddle down! Riddle hits barriers!

Riddle clutches his side while Judgement Day laughs at him. Priest goes out to fetch Riddle, and he hoists Riddle up to run and RAM him into more barriers! Priest snarls as he looms over Riddle, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns one more time and Riddle has Priest up top now! Priest fights Riddle off with a HEADBUTT! Riddle falls, Priest stands up, but Riddle springs up after Priest! Riddle stands on the very top, brings Priest up with him, SUPER FISHERMAN SUPLEX!! Fans are fired up and Judgement Day is freaking out! Riddle crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Priest survives and Riddle can’t believe it! Both men slowly sit up, Priest throws a forearm! Riddle forearms back! Priest throws a body shot, and another, but Riddle CHOPS and CHOPS! Priest ROCKS Riddle, throws body shots and a HEADBUTT!

Riddle fires off palm strike after palm strike, but Priest ROCKS him! FINAL FLASH! Riddle runs, but Priest blocks this knee to BELL CLAP! And then ROLLING- ROUNDHOUSE!!

Priest dragon sleepers but Riddle slips free! Priest springboards, into the FINAL FLASH!! Riddle hears the voices, bro! Finn gets on the apron but Riddle DECKS him! RK- NO, Priest blocks again!

Priest torture racks Riddle but Riddle fights free. Riddle has a SPLADLE! RIDDLE WINS!

Winner: Matt Riddle, by pinfall

But Dom, Finn and even Rhea attack! They mug The Bro, and then they feed him to SOUTH OF HEAVEN! “You think you know me.” WHAT?!? The Rated R Superstar is back! Edge runs in, dodges Finn and SPEARS Dom! Edge glares at Dom but Rhea saves him by dragging him out of the ring. Finn runs in, Edge dodges him, and SPEARS Finn down!! Fans are thunderous as Edge has risen like a dark phoenix! Edge gets a mic to say, “You have tried to finish me over and over again. But I always come back! Even if it takes me nine years, I come back. And I got to come back in Edmonton! In MY country!”

Edge doesn’t quit! So Finn, Edge has a challenge for you. Extreme Rules, for the first time ever, Edge VS Finn 1v1, IN AN I QUIT MATCH!!! The Prince glares at Edge, but he seems to nod yes! Who will go to the extreme to make the other say those dreaded two words?

My Thoughts:

A great episode tonight with so much set up for Extreme Rules. Especially with basically all the matches now having a stipulation, as is the point of Extreme Rules the PPV concept. Great opening segment with the Raw Women’s Championship story, and I like that it’ll be a Ladder match between Bianca and Bayley. It won’t be about pinning or submitting, which can definitely be to Bayley’s advantage since she needed DMG CTRL to pin Bianca, and can even have them help her cheat in winning the match.

Great to see Candice LeRae now joining her husband here on Raw, and it works on multiple levels that she beat Nikki. Nikki’s been just circling a breaking point that could reset her to SAnitY Nikki. Candice also getting in on the DMG CTRL story is cool, there’s a lot of possibilities here. Speaking of Johnny Wrestling, Gargano & Kevin had a great match against Alpha Academy, and of course Theory got involved. It bites him in the butt, The Academy loses, and then we get a good segment where Gable sticks his foot in his mouth. Gable is gonna get squashed by Braun, Gargano is going to have an awesome match with Otis, but I bet Theory also gets involved with that one.

Omos crushes more jobbers, but MVP was calling out Braun, so maybe Omos goes after Braun after he’s done with Gable? Omos VS Braun has potential, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they do the ring breaking superplex spot like back in the day. Great stuff out of Miz and his “MIZFORCE,” but of course MIZFORCE was going to get taken out by Lumis. At some point, Lumis has to draw a picture to illustrate what kind of match he wants with Miz, or just what he wants with Miz period.

Great match from Styles VS Sami, showing there is cross-brand storytelling with The Bloodline. I also like that there is more blending of stories as Finn keeps trying to recruit Styles. Styles refuses and pays for it, and then we get a great match between Riddle and Priest. Riddle winning with the Spladle is great because it keeps this going while still giving Riddle momentum going into the Fight Pit. Edge making his return is great, and him challenging Finn to an I Quit is wild. I cannot wait to see this one. The HHH Era is awesome!

My Score: 8.8/10

As if Grand Slam wasn’t enough, AEW has some extra innings here with Dark: Elevation! Will Mr. & Mrs. Superbad, Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford, be hot together in Mixed Tag action?


  • Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Capt. Shawn Dean & Skye Blue; Kip & Penelope win.
  • Ortiz VS Serpentico w/ Luther; Ortiz wins.


If what I’ve read is correct, there are only TWO matches for Elevation tonight after how stacked Grand Slam was this year. And it’s pretty clear to see which way each match will go, too, so not much else to say.
