Mitchell’s NJPW AXS TV Results: King of Pro-Wrestling 2019 Part 1!

Who will be IWGP United States Champion?!



NJPW King of Pro Wrestling 2019

It’s once again National Sports Day in Japan!

And to celebrate, the IWGP United States Championship is on the line, and Juice Robinson is ready to take it back! Will he succeed or suffer?


Coverage of King of Pro-Wrestling 2019 will be as broadcast by AXS TV



  • IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship: Will Ospreay VS El Phantasmo; Ospreay wins and retains the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion.
  • IWGP United States Championship No Disqualification Match: Jon Moxley VS Juice Robinson; Moxley is unable to compete, title vacated.
  • Vacant IWGP United States Championship No Disqualification Match: Juice Robinson VS Lance Archer; Archer wins and becomes the new IWGP United States Champion.


NJPW and AXS set the scene for this Sports Day tradition!

Titles will be tested as NJPW celebrates the national holiday with furious rivalries! Jon Moxley made his debut in NJPW by viciously taking away the IWGP United States Championship from Juice Robinson. And despite a streak of seven wins, his first loss would come at the hands of Juice! They were set to face off once more, but a typhoon would see to making traveling impossible! Moxley misses out on tonight’s match, so he is no longer the champion!! Stepping up is the Killer Elite, Lance Archer! Will the American Psycho take advantage of this massive opportunity? Or will the Flamboyant One become a three-time title holder?

But before all that, the Aerial Assassin is on a run as the UK’s most successful IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champions. But the Bullet Club’s El Phantasmo has had Ospreay’s number ever since coming to NJPW! Will ELP continue his streak from the Best of the Super Juniors, Super J Cup and even their IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship encounter to become a multi-belt champion? Or will Ospreay soar even higher to keep what’s his?


IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship: Will Ospreay VS El Phantasmo!

The Aerial Assassin has been on a personal mission to prove what makes him the best Junior Heavyweight in the world, but ELP looks to make his reign RIP. Who looks to lead the Junior Heavyweights into a new era?

AXS skips quickly through introductions to get right to the action, and fans are fired up for Ospreay already. ELP offers a handshake, but Ospreay is skeptical. Ospreay declines, and he ties up with ELP. Ospreay powers ELP to ropes but lets up to fake a punch and give ELP a pat. ELP circles with Ospreay again and they tie up. ELP powers Ospreay to ropes now, and he also fakes the punch to pat Ospreay. ELP even mocks Ospreay’s superhero landing pose. Ospreay runs into an arm-drag but gets the headscissor. ELP pops out but Ospreay sweeps to a cover, ONE! ELP full nelsons, spins, cravats and snapmares Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through to kick and whip. Ospreay hurdles but ELP leaps over. ELP handsprings through the hip toss but Ospreay handsprings through the monkey flip! Things keep moving, Ospreay handsprings through a huricanrana but ELP handsprings up to meet him, only to narrowly avoid a roundhouse!

Ospreay looms over ELP to show him how close that was. ELP gets to ropes for safety, and Ospreay grins. ELP offers another handshake but Ospreay still declines. ELP offers the handshake to the ref and the ref obliges. ELP then calls for a test of strength, and fans rally up. Ospreay goes to accept but ELP keeps playing around with him. They finally tie up and go shoulder to shoulder in the knuckle lock. ELP makes Ospreay bridge, but Ospreay fights his way up to make ELP bridge all the way down! He sweeps legs to cover, ONE as ELP bridges back up. Ospreay hops on but ELP blocks with feet, comes up and monkey flips. Both men are down but ELP rolls back, only for Ospreay to return the monkey flip! They’re both down again, ONE, and they raise a hand up. They rest, ONE, the other hand goes up. Rest, TWO, double bridge!

Both men break, but ELP then slaps Ospreay while upside-down. Ospreay sits up quick and ELP follows. ELP still wants a handshake after all that, so Ospreay SLAPS him! ELP falls back into a corner, Ospreay dares ELP to get up. ELP stands and CHOPS! Ospreay CHOPS back and ELP falls over! Ospreay looms over ELP, and then they get in each other’s face. ELP forearms, Ospreay responds with a forearm. ELP goes to the ropes but comes back with another forearm. Ospreay hits back again, and the pace picks up. They start throwing forearms fast and furious! ELP makes sure to grind Ospreay’s eyes, but then realizes he may have played too dirty. ELP apologizes and reasons with the ref, and again offers a handshake. Ospreay actually takes it, and ELP helps him stand. To then go after the eyes on purpose! The ref counts and ELP lets up, to claw at Ospreay’s back! And throw him down by his hair!

ELP stands Ospreay up to CHOP, then throw big forearms. ELP whips, Ospreay holds ropes and boots back! Ospreay swings but into a knuckle lock. ELP CHOPS, goes to the ropes and shows off before using flying headscissors to send Ospreay out! ELP then builds speed to fake Ospreay out! And now he copies the Superhero Landing! With some Too Sweets, too. Ospreay springboards, Pip-Pip Cheerio flying forearm! ELP bails out, Ospreay runs, but Ospreay actually Sasuke Specials! The Aerial Assassin has control as NJPW goes to break!

NJPW on AXS returns with replays of that amazing Sasuke Special. Ospreay stands to throw ELP OVER the announce desks! ELP wipes out English commentary’s Gino Gambino, and ends up in the way! Ospreay tells him to move, but he refuses, and ELP comes back with a CHAIR! ELP plays innocent, but he drags Ospreay up and around the way. They fight into the crowds, ELP kicking Ospreay while he’s down. They end up by a back exit, and ELP is on the higher level. Fans cheer getting an even closer look, but Ospreay surprises ELP by leaping up to join him! Now Ospreay dares ELP to face him, and the two meet on the top of the large door frame. ELP throws the first forearm, but Ospreay responds! Both men wobble with every hit, but they keep on hitting!

Ospreay sits down but picks himself up to rock ELP back. Ospreay brings ELP in, but the referee shouts for him not to do this. ELP fights out and rakes Ospreay’s eyes! ELP shoves Ospreay over, but Ospreay saves himself by grabbing the railing! Fans shout for Ospreay’s safety as ELP kicks at Ospreay’s hands! Ospreay lets go but lands on his feet, only for ELP to LEAP! Phantasmo wipes Ospreay out but risks his own legs in the impact! The referee checks on them, but they’re somehow okay to continue. The ref tells the two to get back to the ring, and ELP drags Opsreay over with a headlock. Fans cheer as ELP and Ospreay return to ringside. ELP puts Ospreay in and fans rally up. Cover, TWO! ELP keeps his focus as he drags Ospreay up. ELP CHOPS, then wrenches to whip Ospreay corner to corner. Ospreay hist buckle pads face first, but ELP is on him with another back clawing!

ELP puts Ospreay up top and into a Tree of Woe to stomp away. The ref backs him off but ELP rallies up with fans. ELP runs in corner to corner, for a basement dropkick! He wants one more and fans rally. ELP runs corner to corner again, to go up and after the groin! Ospreay shouts in pain but the ref stops ELP. ELP brags, but Ospreay reaches up for a Spider German Suplex! Ospreay frees himself from the Tree, and now ELP is in the opposite corner. Ospreay throws big forearms and CHOPS! he whips ELP corner to corner, ELP goes up and over and springboards, into a dropkick! Fans cheer as Ospreay fires himself up. Ospreay drags ELP up and throws forearms. He whips, ELP reverses, but Ospreay handsprings for the flying enziguri! ELP flops down in a drop zone and Ospreay climbs. Moonsault!

Cover, but someone yanks the ref right out of the ring and into railing!!

It’s Taiji Ishimori!! Bone Soldier, El Phantasmo’s tag team partner, is saving him from defeat! Ishimori goes after Ospreay in the ring with stomps and punches, then he fetches the title belt. Ishimori holds it up, ready to hit Ospreay. But Robbie Eagles springboards in to dropkick Ishimori out! Ospreay’s fellow Bird of Prey DIVES and sentons onto Ishimori! Fans are fired up now that things are even again! Eagles takes Ishimori away, but he forgot to put the belt back! ELP has the belt now, and as Ospreay gets in the corner, ELP takes aim.

Ospreay and ELP stir as the fans are thunderous again.

Ospreay sits up at the 25 minute mark, and staggers to his feet. ELP slowly rises, Ospreay throws a forearm. ELP throws one back, and now they brawl again. Ospreay wobbles, but comes back with another! ELP slaps away  but Ospreay ROUNDHOUSE! Ospreay blocks the next shot to HOOK KICK! Another ROUNDHOUSE! Blockbuster DDT! Cover, TWO!! Now ELP survives! Ospreay drags ELP to a drop zone, climbs up top, but ELP kicks the ref into the ropes to trip Ospreay up! ELP climbs up top, drags Ospreay up and into the underhooks. But Ospreay fights free to throw haymakers! ELP headbutts back, and then climbs around beside Ospreay. The two stand, ELP says BANG, SUPER- POWERBOMB!! Ospreay wrecks the Steiner and then backs away to a corner. ELP flounders about, Ospreay aims, HIDDEN BLADE! But Ospreay isn’t done yet, he underhooks, lifts, STORMBREAKER! Cover, Ospreay wins!!

Winner: Will Ospreay, by pinfall; still IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion

The Assassin defeats the Phantom! Bullet Club couldn’t pull off another title robbery, but will they be back for another try?


Vacant IWGP United States Championship No Disqualification Match: Juice Robinson VS Lance Archer!

The Death Rider could not ride in with a typhoon in his way, so the Killer Elite stepped up! Will he use Moxley’s misfortune to his own benefit? Or will the Flamboyant One succeed no matter the situation?

Introductions are made, but Archer snatches the mic from the announcer! “Aw hell no! This isn’t going to be a straightforward fight!” The Ryogoku Kokugikan is going to become Archer’s Murder Hawk Mansion! Fans wanted No Disqualifications for Juice VS Mox, they’re still getting it for Juice VS Archer! #EverybodyDies for the US Championship! Juice accepts, and this match begins!

Archer grabs Juice right away but Juice low blows! No DQ, after all! Juice cradles to a small package, TWO! Archer gets to the apron but Juice runs, to SPEAR Archer to the floor! Fans are fired up with Juice as he goes to fetch something from under the ring. Juice has a chair, and he JAMS it into Archer’s stomach. Then he SMACKS Archer on the back! Archer crawls but Juice SMACKS him again! Juice gives Archer another chair shot to the gut, then whips him around the way into railing! Juice brings Archer back up to whip into a post! Juice puts Archer up against railing and starts punching away! He punches once, twice, three times, and then closes the gate. Juice gets space, runs back in, and runs into a BOOT! Archer clears off commentary and tosses chairs aside. He drags Juice up, but Jucie breaks free, only to get caught again, CHOKE SLAM through the table!!

Archer shows no mercy, giving chair shots to the Young Lions, and then one to Juice! Archer holds up the belt as if he’s already won. He then goes to the ring and undoes a buckle pad, and then another buckle pad. Archer won’t stop there, he clears off a third corner, throwing the pad into the aisle. He clears off the fourth pad, and now all corners are bare buckles! Archer gives Juice another chair shot to keep him down. The announcer warns the fans to be careful as Archer gets another chair! Archer threatens Red Shoes before wedging that chair into one corner. Then he takes another chair, and wedges it into another corner. Juice flounders up but Archer gives him another chair shot! Archer still isn’t done, he gets a TABLE! Make that two tables! Archer BOOTS Juice as he rises, then CLOBBERS a Young Lion!

Archer puts the tables in the open corners, and has made the ring into that Murder Hawk Mansion he mentioned. Archer has Juice, and RAMS him into a chair! Juice clutches his hand, because a finger dislocated! Juice works to set that right but Archer just rams him into the other chair! Cover, TWO! Juice is hurting and bleeding as we go to break.

NJPW on AXS returns once more, and Archer is far from through with Juice. Archer drags Juice up with a knuckle lock, then climbs the ropes. Archer goes Old School, all the way to the table in the corner. Archer keeps going for this extended version, but Juice trips him up! Archer gets hung up on the blue corner, and Juice grits his teeth as he drags Archer up. Juice headbutts Archer then climbs up to join him. Juice brings Archer up with one good hand, SUPERPLEX! Juice crawls to cover, TWO!! Archer foams at the mouth in anger and Juice is still working on that bad hand. Juice pumps up the left hand, and Archer stands up. Juice manages to JAB with his bad hand, and then prepares, but Archer blocks! Juice breaks free to hit a RIGHT hand of God! Now the LEFT! Archer still stands, so Juice runs in, CANNONBALL through a table! Archer pays for that decision, Juice covers, TWO!! Archer survives but is now in trouble!

Juice powers up and says it’s time to spin around. He underhooks and turns Archer but Archer shoves him away to then boot. Archer runs in and POUNCES Juice into the other table! The Murder Hawk Mansion turns out a success in the long run. But Archer isn’t done there, he goes back under the ring. Archer brings out a chair, and then another chair, but Juice heads out. Juice also brings in chairs! So many chairs! NJPW is going to the extreme thanks to these American boys! Juice and Archer are each armed with chairs. Archer swings but misses, but he still punches Juice’s chair into his face! That chair goes flying, and it just hits railing to keep the front row safe! Archer fires up and drags Juice up. He clamps on a claw, choke slam evaded! Juice blocks the claw and fireman’s carries, to a Juice Box gut buster! Cover, TWO!!

Juice is growing frustrated, but he has a plan. He stacks chairs in a pile in the middle of the ring. He waits for Archer to stand, and then underhooks! But Archer slips out, Full Nelson BOMB on the chairs!! Juice writhes and spasms, but Archer decides to stack those chairs back together. Archer drags Juice up, puts him in a corner and on the top rope…! Archer ROCKS Juice with a right, and shouts at the fans cheering for Juice. Archer has Juice in the inverted crucifix, “EVERYBODY DIES!” FULL METAL BLACKOUT!! Juice crashes onto the chairs, Archer covers, TWO!? Juice survives and Archer is enraged!! Archer hauls Juice up to dribble him off the chairs over and over and over! Then, the EBD CLAW! He smothers Juice into the cover, Archer WINS!!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall; NEW IWGP United States Champion

But Archer shows no mercy, he keeps crushing Juice! Young Lions hurry to pull him off but they get beat up for it! Archer throws a chair at one! And then the other! And then he clamps the claw back on Juice’s head! Archer sends a message to all of NJPW, but someone responds! It’s DAVID FINLAY! Juice’s best buddy is back form injury! But he’s only angered Archer! Archer clamps on for a choke slam, but Finlay reverses to a STUNNER! And then he hits SLICED BREAD! Finlay is all fired up and ready to fight! Will he get revenge for Juice while taking the US Championship for his own?


NJPW Media Backstage Interview

Archer tells Finlay, “Everybody dies.” If you thought Archer did serious damage in the G1 Climax, if you thought he did damage to Juice tonight, “you have no idea what’s about to happen.” It’s not Archer’s fault someone else didn’t make it, but he will take full credit for beating the crap out of Juice. All the “punk crying b*tches” can keep crying and kiss his ass! Archer is champion, and no one can do anything about it. Finlay came back at the wrong time, and he shouldn’t have gotten in Archer’s way. Because now, Archer is going to end Finlay’s career. #EverybodyDies, but when and where will this next showdown go down?



My Thoughts:

What a great and fast hour for NJPW here. El Phantasmo VS Ospreay was incredible, definitely a great match from great Junior Heavyweights. Bullet Club stays consistent with trying to help each other out, Ishimori really threw the ref out hard. But in the end, Ospreay is perhaps the strongest he’s ever been, perhaps the strongest any Junior Heavyweight has been, even without beating the IWGP Heavyweight Champion or comparable stars. I can’t be sure Ospreay loses the Junior Heavyweight Championship unless it is in a Triple Threat or bigger. Going 1v1 and with screw jobs still doesn’t seem enough, so something has to escalate if anyone is to ever take the title from Ospreay.

Then with the United States Championship, I didn’t personally realize that even circumstances out of a champion’s control could strip them of a title. However, given NJPW’s schedule being mostly month-to-month, it is understandable that if you miss even that one, you can’t have the title anymore. Other promotions, such as the WWE, always talk that if a champion can’t defend their title within a 30-day span, aka a month, they shouldn’t have the title. There are times when they don’t follow that, though they are getting better at that. It is good to see NJPW follow their own rule, and this at least frees Moxley of NJPW obligations for a time. Moxley personally might not be that upset, he has a lot going for him in AEW right now, so he can focus on that. And NJPW did great to adjust, we got an insane No Disqualification match out of Juice and Archer. That looked like a legit finger dislocation, so kudos to Juice continuing despite that.

Archer winning is great for him, and I’m sure Finlay was meant to attack even if it was Molxey. Finlay and Archer will make for a great match, but I’m thinking Archer wins to keep himself strong. Who knows if Moxley will ever get another shot at the belt or have any other involvement in NJPW given his AEW stories brewing, only time will tell.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s WWE Raw Results & Report! (3/20/23)

Monday is ImPAULsive!



The Road to WrestleMania gets even bigger!

On the same night Roman Reigns returns to Raw, Logan Paul hosts a special edition of his talk show, with The Miz as special guest!


  • Austin Theory VS Montez Ford; Theory wins.
  • Omos w/ MVP VS Mustafa Ali; Omos wins.
  • Dominik Mysterio w/ Damian Priest VS Johnny Gargano w/ Dexter Lumis; Dom wins.
  • Bayley w/ Damage CTRL VS Rhea Ripley; Rhea wins.
  • Chad Gable w/ Otis VS Ricochet w/ Braun Strowman; Ricochet wins.
  • Chelsea Green & Piper Niven VS Asuka & Bianca Belair; win.


Kevin Owens is here!

The fans fire up as the Prizefighter heads to the ring, but it turns out, he’s not alone! SAMI ZAYN is here, too! The best frenemies reunited on SmackDown, so they’re rolling together here on Raw! Fans sing Sami’s song and then cheer for “SAMI! SAMI!” Kevin says, “I think they like you.” Fans then chant for “KO! KO!” Sami says, “Sounds like they like you, too, pal.” Kevin appreciates them cheering, and Sami says it feels really, really, really good to come out here on the same page with Kevin again. And he didn’t get a chance to say this last week, but Sami says he gets it.

After Elimination Chamber, for weeks Sami came up to Kevin, talking about not being friends and working together, he had it wrong. He thought of it as a business transaction, and that’s not how they’ve done this. They’ve needed each other their whole careers, whether as friends or enemies, they’ve always used each other to get to the next level, and they did it as brothers. Kevin says Sami is right about that, but here’s something Sami might not understand. For 20 years, Kevin’s been Sami’s biggest fan. Whether fighting each other or fighting alongside each other, Kevin’s been Sami’s biggest fan. Whenever he would be asked who is the best wrestler he’s been in the ring with, he’d say Sami Zayn.

So for the last six months, it was frustrating to see Sami in the Bloodline, being held under Roman’ Reigns’ thumb, when the truth is, Sami is better than all of them! He outgrew the Bloodline right away! Kevin knew it, the Bloodline knew it, and the FANS knew it! Kevin couldn’t take seeing Sami stay under Roman. But Sami got through to Kevin, and Kevin realized it was time to get over that and take down the Bloodline together. Sami says they both know what comes next. They look to the WrestleMania sign! And here come the Usos! Jimmy & Jey glare right at Sami & Kevin, and they have mics of their own to speak their minds.

Fans boo but Jey says, “Look at ’em! You see what I see?” Jimmy sees ’em, Uce. That right there is a backstabber! Sami, what you whispering about? Kevin’s Sami’s biggest fan, they like you, too! You two are just gonna backstab each other! They’re the kind of family that cuts at each other’s throats! Sami says they’re gonna talk about family with cutthroats and backstabbers, we all know it is Jey’s dream to get back at Roman Reigns! Jimmy says Sami’s the only one dreaming! Wake up! The two of them staring at the Mania sign like something’s gonna happen there. Nothing’s gonna happen there. NOTHING!

Kevin says let’s just cut to the chase. We all know where this is going, what they’re thinking. And by the sound of it, the fans are thinking the same thing! There’s only one way to settle this, and only one place to do it: The Grandest Stage of Them All! Jimmy & Jey as brothers VS these brothers, Kevin & Sami, for the Undisputed Tag Team titles at WrestleMania! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Jimmy says the Usos are the greatest team in the world! Kevin & Sami don’t deserve anything! They’ve been on the same page for three minutes. The Usos have been down since day one! There won’t be a title match at WrestleMania!

Jey says, “To be honest, though… This might be our one shot to put this, uh, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens problem in the dirt. So yeah! Brother VS Brother at WrestleMania! WE ACCEPT!” In fact, why wait? The Usos rush the ring and the brawl is on! Kevin has Jimmy. Jey has Sami, but Jimmy POSTS Kevin and Sami TOSSES Jey! Jimmy then runs in to TOSS Sami! Sami throws hands, the Usos mug Sami, but Kevin CLOBBERS Jimmy into the timekeeper’s area! Now the Canadians mug Jey! They put Jey in the ring, Jey runs, into a SUPERKICK! And then Sami sets up, HELLUVA- NO, Jimmy bails Jey out!

Fans boo but the Usos regroup and grab chairs! But refs rush out, and a SUV pulls up backstage. The rest of the Bloodline arrives! Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman get the door for the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns! Kevin & Sami dare the Usos to do something, but the Usos retreat to regroup with the Bloodline. But the match is made all the same! Will the Bloodline stand or crumble in Hollywood?


Austin Theory VS Montez Ford!

The Now United States Champion didn’t like all the jokes made at his expense, and he took it out on Angelo Dawkins. But will he be able to do the same to the other half of the Profits? Or will A-Town go down this close to WrestleMania?

Raw returns and Ford makes his entrance. Dawkins sees him out to the ramp then falls back, as Ford did for Dawkins last week. The bell rings and Theory circles with Ford. Fans chant, “We Want The Smoke!” Ford and Theory tie up, Theory headlocks, but Ford powers up. Theory holds on tight, but Ford tries again. Ford gets free, but Theory runs him over! Theory does the running man then says, “All Day.” Fans boo but Theory talks trash on Ford. Ford ties up with Theory, headlocks back, but Theory powers out. Ford leaps over Theory, then CLOBBERS him! Fans fire up while Theory is dazed. Ford says, “You Can’t See Me!”

Ford stalks Theory, but Theory throws body shots and haymakers! Theory CHOKES Ford on the ropes! The ref counts, Theory lets off, but Theory storms up to bump Ford off buckles. Theory stomps away on Ford, the ref counts, but Theory lets off at 4. Fans boo but Theory soaks it all up. Theory then brings Ford up, but Ford turns things around and gives all those stomps back! Theory dodges the haymaker to kick and whip, but Ford reverses and follows to LARIAT! Theory stands, Ford clotheslines Theory up and out! Fans fire up, and Ford TOSSES Theory over the barriers! Fans fire up more as Ford celebrates with them and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Theory has Ford up top, but Ford fights back with body shots! Ford ROCKS Theory, Theory holds onto ropes to stay up, but Ford CLAWS his face then DECKS him! Ford stands up to CROSSBODY! Both men are down and fans fire up! Theory and Ford stand, Theory storms up but Ford counter punches! And again! Ford rallies with big clotheslines, then he dodges to UPPERCUT! Ford hits a BIG back suplex, to a handspring, “You Can’t See Me!” STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Theory survives but Ford has the fans behind him. Ford waits on Theory to stand, and then clinches, but Theory elbows free!

Theory brings Ford in, Ford wrenches out and ROCKS Theory! Theory rebounds to BOOT! Ford ENZIGURIS in return! Theory staggers, but he still fireman’s carries! Ford slips free to DDT! Theory bails out and sputters, but Ford kips up to then FLY!! Direct hit at the ramp and St. Louis is thunderous! Ford puts Theory back in, climbs up the corner, and FROM THE HEAVEN- NO, Ford has to roll through as Theory moves! Somersault SHOTGUN! Theory calls his shot, fireman’s carries, A-TOWN DOWN!! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

One miscalculation from Ford and Theory pulls out the victory! But as close as this was, will Theory find himself struggling against the living legend that is John Cena?

Theory gets the mic to say, “He didn’t believe in me, and now he does. And John, you don’t believe in me. But at WrestleMania, you will!” Theory points to the sign, will WrestleMania belong to The Now?


The Bloodline regroups in the private suite.

The Usos sit with Roman, and he says that wasn’t the best start to the night. Are they good? They’re good. Well, it looked like they took a beating. Well, yeah, a few shots. But y’know what? Nothing can hurt Jimmy or hit him harder than being torn away from his brother. Nothing! And then having to sit here and answer to it like it’s his fault! Is Jimmy standing up to Roman? “I will never forgive Sami Zayn for this.” At Mania, the Usos got him. Roman sure hopes so. He really does. “Wise Man!” “Yes, My Tribal Chief?” “Bring me Adam Pearce.” “Yes, My Tribal Chief.” Heyman heads out, as do Jimmy and Solo, but Roman tells Jey to stay.

Jey sits closer with Roman now, but what will the Tribal Chief have to say to him?


Raw returns as Roman and Jey continue to sit.

Roman says, “It’s been a minute. Haven’t seen you. Haven’t heard from you. I got to beg your brother to get some answers. And now you’re back, making decisions. In order to make decisions, you gotta be part of the Bloodline. Are you with us? Are you Bloodline? Are you still my family?” Jey says he is with Roman. He is Bloodline, Uce. The two look at each other, eye to eye, and Roman says, “I hope so. So I’ma let you do you. I’ll see you later.” Jey nods and goes to stand up, but then Roman puts a hand on his knee. “I love you.” Jey goes, and Heyman returns. “My Tribal Chief.” “Yes, Wise Man?” “Did you find out the answers you were looking for?” Roman says yes.


BREAKING NEWS for WrestleMania!

For what feels like the thousandth time, Pearce is the one. He is the general manager, he makes things official, and he- Well if he’s so official, then go ahead and make it official that these two are in the Women’s Fatal 4 Way Showcase! That’s what he was in the middle of doing! Oh! Finalizing? Do you know who she is?! She is Chelsea green, she is a star, and you do not want to make her angry. Don’t make her go on social media and at WWE to put her on blast. Or worse, walk him! Put her in! ‘Kay, bye.

Pearce sighs, but at the very least, Chelsea and Piper are going to see if they’re a worthy duo against the EST and the Empress of Tomorrow.


It’s a tale of the tape!

“WrestleMania has played host to some of the biggest collisions in WWE history. And this year, two titans are set for a colossal showdown.” Brock Lesnar has used his natural physical gifts for roughly 20 years. He is 6’3″ and 285 pounds, with a wingspan of 81 inches, Lesnar has the ultimate tools to deliver suplexes and the F5. So it is no surprise that he has achieved so many accolades: seven-time WWE Champion, three-time Universal Champion, two-time Royal Rumble winner. He even dominated the octagon to become UFC Heavyweight Champion. It is clear that Lesnar is capable of decimating anyone he’s faced.

But he’s never faced someone like Omos. The Nigerian Giant’s sheer size made him a spectacle upon arrival. 7’3″, 416 pounds, making him dwarf even Khali, Kane and the Undertaker. The 87 inch reach gives him a foot of advantage over the average boxer, and his 14.5 inch hands are twice the size of a normal man’s. Omos has already cemented himself as a force of nature in the WWE. These two have all the components to overwhelm the ordinary competitor, but they’re both far from ordinary. This will be a battle unlike any other, on the only stage big enough to contain them!


Omos w/ MVP VS Mustafa Ali!

If that tale of the tape wasn’t enough for you, then prepare to see the Nigerian Giant in action! Will the Beacon be broken this close to WrestleMania?

The bell rings and Ali tries to reason with Omos. Ali believes in positivity now, and he will win with a smile on his face. Omos SHOVES Ali all the way to the corner! Omos talks trash on Ali, then CLOBBERS him! Ali flounders and Omos roars. Dolph Ziggler is watching backstage, he is not impressed by Ali’s overenthusiasm. Omos drags Ali up to MOUNTAINTOP SLAM!! Cover, Omos wins!

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

MVP gets the mic and says the Nigerian Giant fears no man, animal or beast. But Brock Lesnar will learn to fear the Nigerian Giant at WrestleMania! But will The Beast be able able to build Suplex City on the huge foundation that is this mountain?


Security knocks on Logan Paul’s door.

Logan Paul and his entourage head out, and Miz walks over for a handshake. Miz was hoping to go over the questions for tonight, since Logan will surely want have him, this year’s host of WrestleMania, as his guest on ImPAULsive TV tonight. Yeah, no, hard pass. Logan leaves Miz hanging and heads to gorilla, but will he regret showing up on Raw tonight?


Logan Paul heads to the ring.

Fans are torn as “the Maverick” is ready to host the Raw debut of his talk show. “EY YOOO, ST. LOUIS~! Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get a little ImPAULsive, shall we?” Logan knows last week, Seth Rollins said that the fans don’t want Logan here. Well too bad because tonight, you’re in HIS house! ImPAULsive TV, baby! Boo all you want, but here’s the reality, y’all. He doesn’t have to be here. He doesn’t. He’s made his millions off his name and his brands, but he’s here because he loves it. He hears you, and sadly, y’all don’t love him. Maybe two people do: his dad, who he dragged to St. Louis, and that kid who had the “Drink Prime” sign. Much love, kid.

But the rest of y’all, no matter how many times he gets on the mic for their entertainment, no matter how many of these “superstars” he beats up, the fans will never respect him. But guess what? He doesn’t care! It isn’t his fault you DORKS refuse to see the amount of talent standing in front of you! Logan is a 360 degree entertainer, there is nothing he can’t do, there is no seat he can’t fill, there is no person on this roster he can’t compete with. Whether you like him or not, yes, he IS that good. That’s why he didn’t invite anyone to be his guest tonight. Because he can do it all! And did you think any of his celebrity friends would come to a place like St. Louis?

“Two words: Get real!” They’d be outta here quicker than the St. Louis Rams! Oh, sorry, the LA Rams! In fact, he’s looking to joining the Rams back in LA when he challenged “your hear,” Seth Rollins, to a match at WrestleMania, April 1st, Logan’s 28th birthday. Happy birthday to himself, he gets to kick some ass. But jokes aside, the match will be great. Rollins is top three in the business. But Logan was talking with his brother, Jake, and Jake made a good point. It is hard to be afraid of a guy named “Seth.” Seths are nice guys. Seth Rogan, Seth Curry, though he’s not as good as Steph Curry, but hey.

And maybe, if Rollins hadn’t started this beef, they could’ve been friends! But now, Logan just wants to see himself knock Rollins out again. Actually, can we do that? Can we get a replay of him knocking Rollins out? It was two weeks ago, Rollins gave Miz a superkick and then Logan hit his One Lucky Punch. Do you guys like Rollins? Let’s see that again. Oh, so good! Rollins looked so dumb. Okay, one more time! Put some production value on it. BOP! SMACK! WHAM! Beautiful! Like watching Picasso paint. Logan could see that all day! But then Logan’s mic gets cut? Logan isn’t sure what’s going on here. Did the production team not get the mics right?

Fans cheer that Logan can’t be heard, but he just trades mic. But wait! Rollins is in the production truck! He “apologizes” to “Mr. Paul” about that. He isn’t sure what’s wrong. Logan’s audio isn’t working, the video isn’t working. What could the problem be? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Now the real question, Logan, is how on Earth are we gonna save this terribly awful episode of ImPAULsive TV? Any ideas? OH! Rollins has one. HAHAHAHAHA! “BURN IT DOWN~!” See you soon, Logan! HAHAHAHA! Rollins struts all the way from the truck to gorilla, in a leopard print outfit, too. Logan mocks the fans singing as tone deaf.

Rollins heads to the ring and fans sing more, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Logan says St. Louis can’t keep a football team and they can’t keep a tune. And Rollins’ outfit is stupid. Rollins stands with Logan in the ring as fans sing, has the mic, but then TACKLES Logan! The two brawl, spill out of the ring, and Rollins throws hands! Refs rush in, as does Adam Pearce! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” and the two get loose! They COLLIDE, and then Rollins TACKLES Logan over the announce desk! Logan scrambles away, but Rollins trips him on the desk!! Logan lands hard, Rollins wants more, but security drags him away!

Rollins rips up Logan’s set, and hurries up the corner! He SUPER CROSSBODIES onto the security! But Logan hits ONE LUCKY PUNCH!! Logan laughs more than Rollins and he takes his leave. Logan says that’s another one, so third time will be the charm. Will Logan get another lucky punch at WrestleMania? Or will Rollins finally burn this “tourist” down?


Dominik Mysterio w/ Damian Priest VS Johnny Gargano w/ Dexter Lumis!

“Ex-Con” Dom keeps pushing his father, Rey, to fight him, but Rey has not caved in. Will the “pathetic, punk-ass kid” take out his frustrations in this match tonight? Or will Johnny Wrestling slap some sense into one smartass before handling another at Stand & Deliver?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Dom gets around but Gargano wrenches to a wristlock. Gargano avoids the body shot to WRING Dom’s arm, then wrenches it again. Dom headlocks, Gargano powers out, and things speed up. Gargano hurdles, drops and CLOBBERS Dom! Dom flounders but Gargano puts him in a corner. Gargano climbs up to rain down fists! Fans count as Gargano goes WAY past ten! Gargano lets off and fans fire up, but Dom kicks Gargano in the ribs! Dom RAMS into Gargano in the corner, Gargano pushes past, but Dom whips him corner to corner. Dom runs in but Gargano goes up and over to schoolboy KICK!

Dom staggers, Gargano RANAS him out of the ring! Fans fire up, Gargano builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans fire up but Gargano clutches his ribs. Gargano stands, Priest coaches Dom up, but Gargano brings Dom around. Dom RAMS Gargano into steel steps! Dom then RAMS Gargano into the barriers! Fans cheer Gargano on but Dom fireman’s carries to SNAKE EYES! Gargano falls to the mat and Dom soaks up the heat as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Dom taunts Gargano while tearing away the rib tape. Dom drags Gargano up, gives some Latino Heat, then suplexes for Uno Amigo! And then Dos Amigos! Fans boo but Gargano fights the third! Gargano suplexes Dom into buckles! Both men are down and fans rally up for Johnny Wrestling. Gargano stands, he fires hands on Dom, blocks a kick, then spins Dom to CLOBBER him! Gargano rallies with more clotheslines, then he ducks ‘n’ dodges to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans fire up and Dom goes to the apron. Gargano avoids the shoulder to KICK Dom! But Dom HOTSHOTS Gargano!

Dom hurries up to SLINGSHOT- NO, Gargano avoids the senton! SLINGSHOT SPEAR! Cover, TWO! Dom survives but Gargano keeps his focus. Dom wants mercy now? Fans boo and Gargano storms up, but Dom sends him into buckles! Roll up, feet on the ropes! The ref notices in time and calls off the count! Dom argues with the ref, but Gargano SUPERKICKS Dom down! Cover, TWO!! Dom survives and Priest is relieved. Gargano drags Dom up, Dom throws body shots, but Gargano ROCKS Dom with a forearm! Dom ROCKS Gargano back, the forearms go back and forth! Gargano gets the edge, but Dom drop toeholds him!

Fans boo but Dom dials it up, only for Gargano to duck the 619! DISCUS LARIAT! Scoop and LAWN DART! Gargano aims from the corner, SUPERKICK!! Cover, TWO!!! Priest is relieved again but Gargano puts Dom up top. Gargano CHOPS and ROCKS Dom, then climbs up after him. Gargano CHOPS away on Dom, then stands him up. Dom throws body shots in return just as furious! Dom CLUBS away on Gargano, then SUPER GOURD BUSTERS! Dom adjusts to FROG SPLASH onto Gargano’s back! Cover, DOM WINS!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall

Priest celebrates with Dom, and Dom pulls it out on an NXT Triple Crown winner! But Dom isn’t done, as he gets the mic. Fans boo, but Dom says, “Last Friday night on SmackDown, my good for nothing father denied my challenge once again to a match at WrestleMania. But you know what, Jefe? I’m not gonna stop until I get what I want. And at the end of the day, I know that this Friday night on SmackDown in las Vegas, the entire Mysterio family will be there live. So I believe that’s the same family that blocked my number, kicked me outta the group chat, and wanted nothing to do with me. But that’s okay, because the Judgment Day group chat is much better.

“But I think I figured out a way to get you to accept my match, and that’s gonna be when I say hi to mom and ask for her permission for you to face me at WrestleMania. That’s if you have the balls to get them out of her purse.” Dom insults his father, but will he regret dragging the rest of the family into this?


The Usos and Solo talk backstage.

Then Heyman walks over and asks if they’re waiting on the Tribal Chief. Because he’s waiting on them to go to the jet. The seafood has been delivered. Shrimp, lobster, mahi mahi. Roman is so proud of all of them, they can take the rest of the night off and indulge. So they can go eat? Okay! Wait, not Solo. Roman needs to talk with Solo. Solo walks back into the suite with Heyman, and Jey says aight. No mahi mahi for Solo. Will the Usos not be needed for what Roman has planned later tonight?


Edge speaks.

“If you push me, I will not just resist. I will throw you through a wall. Finn, I am a hostile man. I keep it caged so I can be the man I’ve become so I can function in society. But inside the cage… Well, that’s caged no more. I won’t apologize for it, I won’t fight it, I will lean into it, I will revel in it, I will savor it. Finn, you have no idea what I’m capable of inside Hell in a Cell, you have no idea what goes through your soul when that steel door slams shut behind you. But I do. I’ve been baptized inside the cell by the Deadman himself! The cell has become my one friend, my partner, my cathedral of pain. It rewards me for the streak that runs through me.

“You cannot become what you need to become by remaining what you are. Finn, you and I are two men who clearly understand that, so I grasped what you meant when you said that Hell couldn’t handle your demons.” Edge laughs, and says, “The scriptures, they say, ‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil!’ Well, I never have. Because I’m the evil in the valley. So leave Finn at home. Bring your demon… To meet the devil. He’d like to meet him.” Edge has a sinister smile, what will happen when the Rated R Superstar and the Prince unleash it all in one final battle?


Rhea Ripley heads to the ring.

Judgment Day is coming for WrestleMania, and that includes the Eradicator going after the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Rhea gets the mic and has the music cut. Fans rally for “MAMI! MAMI!” and Rhea is amused. “Last Friday, Charlotte, she said that I needed to be a champion. She said that I needed to be a star. And y’know, I actually agree with those statements. But the one thing I don’t agree with is living in the past. Charlotte doesn’t wanna accept her future, and that is why she keeps talking about what happened three years ago at my first WrestleMania, when we stepped into the ring one-on-one for the first time.

“Back when I was trying to make a name for myself and earn respect. Now Charlotte, she thinks that she’s the leader of the Women’s Division. But leaders, they actually respect others. And Charlotte, after that match, I knew that you didn’t respect anyone. I knew that you didn’t respect me. And to be honest, I don’t think that you ever will. Because I make you question the respect you have for yourself. When you hear the name ‘Rhea Ripley,’ you question everything. Don’t ‘What’ me, you’re all pathetic.” Fans boo but Rhea smiles. Rhea says that she brings out all the deepest insecurities that Charlotte tries to mask as confidence.

Rhea says that Charlotte knows that every single time they’ve gone to war, Rhea’s gotten up and kept going, because that is what she does. And what Charlotte does is try to keep people down. But not her! Charlotte, you have to admit that it is time. “You’re done! You’re washed. It’s over. It’s over and you have to go home, where you mean absolutely nothing. Because without the WWE, you are nothing.” Fans boo but Rhea says she doesn’t care about Charlotte’s insecurities, or if she respects Rhea. “Because at WrestleMania, I will become a champion, and I will be the biggest star here in the WWE!”

“And Charlotte~… My little Charlotte, when you see me holding your crown above your head… You’re gonna know that all your insecurities are true. I don’t need you to respect me. But you will fear me.” Wait, Damage Control is coming out here now? Bayley tells Rhea, “Earlier, when you were talking about leaders, I was waiting for you to mention my name. Because, Rhea, I do respect you. We all respect you! Anyone that puts Charlotte Flair in her place has the utmost respect from Damage Control. But um, if you needed any tips on how to beat Charlotte, you could’ve just asked your Role Model, because I did beat Charlotte in my first WrestleMania.

“And I’m pretty sure you saw what we did to Trish Stratus! We-” Rhea cuts Bayley off there and says she doesn’t need any help from them. Well, Bayley thought Rhea might say that. Because Rhea has gotten so cocky! Rhea this, Rhea that, everyone is talking about Rhea dominating the roster! Well guess what/ Raw is THEIR show, so DMG CTRL will show her what Bayley means. Rhea laughs. This is HER show? Mate, Rhea isn’t ring ready, but if one of them wants to get her out of her ring, go ahead. Um, well, ding dong, guess Bayley will be the one, since she’s dressed. Then bring it.

Pearce is backstage, he tells the ref to make this official now. The ref rushes out, Bayley VS Rhea is ready to go, after the break!

Rhea survives DMG CTRL playing a bit of number games a la Judgment Day, but Bayley hits a SAIDO! Cover, TWO! Wait, here comes Becky Lynch! The Man leads the legendary Lita and Trish Stratus out, with a HUGE bag of popcorn between the three of them. Is the Big Time trio just here to watch the show? We’ll see, after the break.

Raw returns again and Bayle waits on Rhea to rise. Rhea stands, Bayley reels her in, BAYLEY2BELLY!! Cover, ONE?!?! Rhea shocks Bayley and even Becky is surprised. Bayley huffs and puffs and reels Rhea back in, another BAYLEY2BELLY!! And then a short arm- NO, Rhea dodges to atomic FACEBUSTER! But Bayley avoids the basement dropkick! Bayley runs to REGAL KNEE! Rhea is dazed, Kai & Sky fire up, and Becky keeps munching popcorn. Fans cheer Becky but Bayley drags Rhea up to fire forearms. Rhea fires them back! The forearms go back and forth, Bayley gets the edge, but Rhea shoves her away.

Bayley avoids the boot, ROCKS Rhea, but Rhea BACK ELBOWS! Fans fire up as both women stagger, and Bayley ELBOWS Rhea in the corner! Bayley waits on Rhea, runs back in, SUNSET FLIP- NO, Rhea stays up! Rhea drags Bayley right up, BOOTS her right down, and then has a wild look in her eyes! Rhea drags Bayley by the legs, into the PRISM TRAP!!

Sky freaks out, but Bayley POSTS Rhea’s head! But here come Becky and the legends!

Kai & Sky brawl with Trish & Lita, but Trish & Lita toss them aside! Becky scares Bayley back into the ring, into a HEADBUTT from Rhea! And then RIPTIDE!! Cover, Rhea wins!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by pinfall

Becky says that’s too bad for Bayley, it was so close. But Rhea is rolling down the Road to WrestleMania, will she rip the Queen down off her throne?


Chad Gable is looking for Otis.

No one’s seen him, it feels like last week. Wait, Otis is getting a spa day? Coach, this is a manicure. Okay, he has been busy with his modeling, but guess what! Gable got them into the WrestleMania Men’s Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Showcase! Wow, really? Yeah! And tonight, Gable is up against one of their opponents in Ricochet. Ricky? Yes! And Otis knows Braun will be out there, so Gable needs his number one guy! Let’s go! But Maxxine Durpi walks in. Otīse’s mani looks marvelous! And now, she’s scheduled him for a session with one of the world’s greatest hand photographers. She sent some samples and the photographer says he MUST work with Otīse!

Maxxine says this is a pivotal moment for Otise’s career! Gable says the models have a match with the Good Brothers, though. Actually, that was postponed. Unfortunately, Mace overexposed his cheeks during a shoot in Mykonos. None of that make sense. When you’re beautiful, you don’t have to make sense! Gable wouldn’t know since he’s so “horrifically middle class.” Now, Otīse, come along, they’re late for the photog. Otis is torn between his coach and his manager. Otis says, “Coach, let’s ride.” Gable’s happy but Maxxine can’t even. Will the Alpha Academy win big tonight on the road to the showcase?

Chad Gable w/ Otis VS Ricochet w/ Braun Strowman!

Raw returns and “SHOOOOSH~! Shoosh, please.” Gable makes his entrance,  his number one guy by his side, though admiring his clean hands and trimmed fingernails. The bell rings and and the circle.

Ricochet escapes by nanoseconds and fans fire up again! But wait, Maxxine comes strutting out to fetch Otis. Otis doesn’t wanna go but Maxxine says the photographer is waiting. Gable is stunned that Otis is leaving! Gable O’Conner Rolls, CHAOS- NO, Ricochet slips out to SLICED BREAD! Fans fire up again as Ricochet goes up top! SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Cover, Ricochet wins!

Winner: Ricochet, by pinfall

The One and Only adds to his highlight reel, and he is rolling down the Road to WrestleMania! Will he and Braun do even bigger in the showcase? Who will #GetTheseHands?


Chelsea Green & Piper Niven VS Asuka & Bianca Belair!

The Hot Mess was almost in a pickle without the Fabulous Princess of Staten Island. But she was lucky to find a Scottish Viper willing to take on the Empress of Tomorrow and the RawEST Women’s Champion. Will Chelsea & Piper show Pearce that they’re worthy of the WrestleMania showcase? Or will Asuka and Bianca showcase why they’re the top two women on Raw?
