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!

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!

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!

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.

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

PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the WrestleMania 37 Night Two Kickoff Show!

Join Kayla Braxton, Booker T, Jerry “The King” Lawler, JBL and Peter Rosenberg for yet another round of discussing, analyzing and predicting the action tonight!

 

Sonya Deville joins the panel again!

Does anyone really understand the implications of the Nigerian Drum Fight? It might just be Apollo Crews who understands. His power and his culture are going to define what happens tonight. Booker asks, “What do I look like? Chopped liver?” Well okay, he would know, yes. Booker says this goes back a long time ago, the Zulu nation and the Mandingo. This will play out in front of the world so the world needs to understand, and Booker says Apollo will make you understand. Sonya wishes she’d heard more about this. But Jerry wants to know why it’s drums. Booker asks, “What do you do to a drum?” You beat it. Exactly!

Rosenberg says the bottom line is, Apollo is in control. Big E may be on the kick of being in his hometown- JBL asks why Rosenberg’s hands are everywhere. But the point is, Apollo knows what this is about because this is his match. Booker says this will be a great night for everyone back home. JBL and Jerry can’t say anything without getting canceled, so they will agree with him.

 

Ashlyn Craft sings America the Beautiful!

 

We’ve waited patiently for this moment.

“Finally…!” The biggest event in LIVE entertainment is BACK! Back with the spectacle, the excitement and the pageantry! WrestleMania is #BackInBusiness! And tonight, WWE sets sail on the high seas with epic epicness bigger than the history of history! Wait, what? Did he just say all that? That’s what was written. Okay, mate, let’s get this cold open done right. We pick up where we left off just last year. Our heroes are obnoxiously heroic as they battle for the ultimate prize: immortality. But no more tall tales, let’s get real, as the kids say. Tonight, we witness the global event that spans decades, created unforgettable moments, and has the memories we will remember forever.

But let us tip our caps to you, the fans, who made this possible. You over there, and them up there, and even those at home who “can’t not watch.” We raise the sails as fate still awaits. The course was corrected, the wind cannot be stopped, and the quest continues! Now how’s that? Impressive. But where’s the big finish? That’s cold open 101. Good point. Pyro montage! “Welcome back… to WrestleMania!”

 

The WrestleMania cohosts are back!

Titus O’Neil and Hulk Hogan return to kick off Night Two of WrestleMania 37, but this time they’re Captain Titus and the Hollywood Privateer! “I dunno about you, Hulk, but I think we look damn good tonight.” Well, T-man, it’s a little hot, too. But either way, AHOY MATIES! Yo ho, brothers, and welcome to Mania Sunday! Last night was incredible, but tonight will be no different! Seven matches, and FIVE are for gold! That means they need to batten down the hatches. No room for scurvy dogs or scallywags! Whoa, don’t be calling the people that. Hogan’s not gonna walk the plank, is he? No, Titus will take care of that. The first match is a tale of terror, dark than the depths of Davey Jones’ Locker! YARRGH!

 

Randy Orton VS The Fiend w/ Alexa Bliss!

The Viper thought he’d finished this at TLC, but some evil never dies. And now, this horror movie in real-life opens the Showcase of the Immortals! Lil’ Miss Twisted Bliss is still by his side, but will Orton finally #LetHimIn?

As he makes is entrance through a mysterious tunnel, The Fiend… has been restored! Alexa makes her way out first, with spooky face paint on to clash with her Punky Brewster outfit. She frolics along, and has a GIANT jack-in-the-box?! Alexa winds the handle and Orton already has an idea what’s coming. All around the mulberry bush, the Fiend chased the Viper~. And out rises The Fiend’s new form! Orton isn’t sure what to make of this, and The Fiend suddenly LEAPS into the ring to CLOTHESLINE Orton down! The bell rings, Fiend SPLASHES in the corner, reels Orton in and hits an URENAGE! Fiend sits Orton up for a NECK SNAP! “YOWIEEEE WOWIEEE~!”

Orton writhes as he clutches his neck and Fiend goes to a corner. Fans fire up as The Fiend spider-walks! Orton gets up, Fiend copies him as he takes aim! Orton flounders up, but he avoids a punt kick! Fiend pursues, Orton kicks low and gives him a back suplex to the desk! But Fiend clamps on with the CLAW! Orton grabs at the ring, gets in, and the ring count is still climbing! Orton gets free but Fiend gets in, only for Orton to kick low. Orton gets Fiend through ropes, for a DRAPING DDT! But Fiend springs right back up! Fiend blocks the RKO, but Orton throws him into his own jack-in-the-box! Fiend flounders, Orton gets Fiend through ropes again and KICKS him!

Orton wrenches the arm, KICKS again, and drags Fiend into ANOTHER DRAPING DDT! Orton looms over Fiend and stomps a hand! Fiend barely flinches, so Orton stomps the other hand! Orton throws hands and clubbing forearms but Fiend just gets up! Orton kicks low, runs, but into a LARIAT! Fiend and fans fire up, things speed up, Fiend BODY CHECKS Orton! Fiend rains down forearms over and over! Fiend gets up to run and drop a back senton, but Orton dodges it! Orton throws Fiend out but Fiend gets right back on the apron. Orton kicks him between ropes, gives away more kicks, then drags Fiend back in, for a THIRD DRAPING DDT!

Orton paces as Fiend slowly stirs. Orton hears the voices and wants Fiend to get up now. Fiend rises, but still no RKO, because Fiend has the MANDIBLE CLAW! Fiend smothers Orton, Orton starts to fade but he grabs at Fiend. Fiend brings Orton up, gives him a kiss good night, and the FLAMES erupt as Alexa is now in a new form! She has a tiara of barbed wire and there’s black ink pouring out. Wait, this distracts the Fiend?! ORTON HITS AN RKO!! Cover, Orton wins!!

Winner: Randy Orton, by pinfall

What is going on with Alexa?! Did she mean to ruin tonight for The Fiend?! Either way, the Viper slithers away before he has to worry about this any longer. Is Orton finally done being haunted by these ghouls? Fiend looks up at Alexa, but the lights start to go out again. And when the lights return, Fiend and Alexa are gone. Just what is happening inside the Firefly Fun House?

 

DING DONG~! Hello!

Bayley asks Titus and Hogan what happened to them texting her back. She says hello to Eric Bischoff, she’s a big fan of his podcast, and says if he ever feels like being on a real show, he can be on hers. Well he’s more of a book guy, not into TV. But that match of Sasha VS Bianca, the SmackDown Women’s Champion on his podcast would be awesome! Yeah, yeah, flavor of the month. But they’re not a role model like Bayley! Bayley is the longest reigning women’s champion, has her own talk show, and is on both nights of Mania! Bischoff brings up Hogan’s new boat, and they decide to go see the boat. Titus wants to ride a boat… Sorry, Bayley, Hall of Famer stuff.

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler w/ Reginald VS Natalya & Tamina!

The Tag Team Turmoil is over, but now the real battle begins! Will the Irresistible Force & Queen of Spades still be standing after battling the Daughter of Superfly & Queen of Harts?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and the battle of alpha females begins!

Natty drops, hurdles, but Shayna blocks a hip toss to get a headlock, only for Natty to trip her up! Shayna scrambles to avoid the Sharpshooter, and tags to Nia. Nia and Natty stare down, fans duel, and they tie up. Nia shoves Natty down and says, “I don’t want you.” She’s calling out Tamina! Tamina reaches out, and Natty tags her in!

Fans fire up as Tamina and Nia stare down. Nia pie faces, headbutts and talks trash but Tamina HEADBUTTS back! It’s a battle of headbutts! Tamina fires off haymakers but Nia denies the scoop! Nia runs but Tamina fires off forearms! Tag to Natty, Nia ROCKS her and Tamina! Nia runs, Shayna tags in, Natty & Tamina DOUBLE BACK DROP Nia! Shayna BOOTS Natty, Tamina ROCKS Shayna back!

Kevin Owens VS Sami Zayn!

Two men who have known each other for two DECADES, ranging everywhere from friends to rivals to bitter enemies, finally have their moment together on the Grandest Stage of Them All! But given the Great Liberator’s ludicrous behavior as of late, the Prizefighter promises to beat some sense into him! Will Kevin snap Sami out of it? Or is Sami too far gone?

WWE Hall of Fame inductee JBL joins commentary for this one to bring back a classic combination of him and #MAGGLE. Sami gets a mic to say, “Please, ladies and gentlemen. I know you’re all just as excited as I am.” Please give a warm WrestleMania welcome for Sami’s special guest of honor, and show some respect to the only ally Sami has had in fighting the conspiracy against Sami! This is… LOGAN PAUL! Logan Paul does walk out to the ring and Sami breaks it down to the theme music again. Sami hugs Logan, and fans are of course divided. Sami apologizes to Logan for the booing. But here comes Kevin! The bell rings and Sami runs, right into a POP-UP POWERBOMB!

Sami flounders out of the ring before Kevin can get him, but Kevin just goes out after him! Kevin brings Sami in and there’s NXT flashbacks as Sami fights the apron bomb! Kevin gets in after Sami, drags him up and CHOPS him! And CHOPS him! Kevin hangs Sami out to dry on ropes and Sami springs right off to hit the mat! Kevin runs in to clothesline Sami down! Kevin goes corner to corner to CANNONBALL! Sami is in a drop zone, Kevin goes up top, but Sami gets out to the apron. Kevin climbs down but walks into a BOOT! Sami reels Kevin in, Kevin elbows free of the half nelson, but Sami kicks low! Sami reels Kevin in, for an APRON BRAINBUSTER!!

Everyone is shocked, even Logan Paul! Sami drags himself back into the ring, Kevin stirs but the ring count is already 5 of 10! Sami wants it to be faster but it’s already at 7 as Kevin stands. Kevin is in at 8 and Sami is on him with furious fists! Sami seethes, kicks Kevin while he’s down, then throws crossface forearms! Logan nods as Sami looks to him, but Kevin throws haymakers! Sami kicks low, scoops Kevin and MICHINOKU DRIVERS! Cover, TWO!! Kevin survives and Sami is furious! Sami goes back to Kevin in a corner, hauls him up to the top rope, and then climbs up to go after him. Kevin resists the superplex, throws heavy body shots, then haymakers.

Sami gives those back, they brawl up top, fans cheer Kevin but boo Sami, until it’s all the same from the pace quickening! Kevin HEADBUTTS Sami down! Kevin adjusts, FROG SPLASHES, and covers, TWO!! Kevin drags Sami up, throws hands, then whips him, to pop-up, but Sami leap frogs and kicks low! Kevin wrenches, ducks a kick, tucks Sami in, PACKAGE USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives and Kevin grows frustrated. Fans fire up with Kevin as he drags Sami back up. Kevin reels Sami in, tucks the arms, but Sami slips out of the package driver to EXPLODER Kevin into buckles! Sami goes corner to corner and HELL-

NO! Kevin dodges the kick, but Sami denies the stunner to BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Sami is losing his cool, but he CORNER EXPLODERS to a HALF ‘N’ HALF! To a BRAINBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?!? Kevin lives and Sami can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” and far from over as Kevin gets to a corner. Sami SLAPS Kevin, Kevin SLAPS Sami, it’s a FAST & FURIOUS SLAP FIGHT!! Sami gets the edge, throws body shots and uppercuts, but the ref has Sami back off. Sami gets Kevin up, hauls him up top but Kevin fights. Sami still gets Kevin to the top and he headbutts from below!

Sami climbs, brings Kevin back up, but Kevin counters to a SUPER FISHERMAN BUSTER!! Even Logan is reeling from that one! Both men are down, Sami slowly sits up and drags himself to a corner. Kevin sits up and is in the opposite corner. Kevin grits his teeth, runs corner to corner at Sami to clothesline! Kevin keeps going, and clotheslines again. Kevin goes, Sami follows, HELLUVA KICK!! Sami keeps Kevin from falling over, and tells him this is because of Kevin. Sami goes corner to corner, into a SUPERKICK!! Sami staggers, into another SUPERKICK!! Fans fire up for Kevin as he looks Sami in the eye. “You did this.” STUNNER!! Cover, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall

Logan seems to be the only one shocked, but he still applauds this victory! Whether Kevin has knocked some sense into Sami is yet to be seen, but he did get a big win at #KOMania5! Logan checks on Sami, tries to talk with him, but Sami says someone screwed him! The ref, the managers, someone! Logan tells Kevin that this was awesome stuff. Sami won’t let Logan shake Kevin’s hand! Sami says Kevin conspired against him! Sami wants Logan to listen to him, but Logan shoves Sami! Sami says to hell with Logan! Sami storms off, Logan raises Kevin’s hand in victory. Logan sure is a bandwagoner, huh?

Kevin doesn’t like that, either, and he gives Logan a STUNNER!! “This is MY ring!” Will this win lead Kevin back to another prizefight?

 

Matt Riddle encounters Great Khali!

What’s up, bro! Riddle wants to congrat Khali on being inducted into the HOF. Can he check the ring? Yep. WHOA, look how big his hand is! It’s as big as Riddle’s head. Khali must have a hard time finding gloves and socks. Khali should open a store that sells giant stuff! Giant shoes, giant socks, giant toilets, and giant scooters! What does he think? No? Nothing? Translator? Wait, RVD is here!! RVD translates for Khali and says that in order to corner the market, we’ll need creative branding. RVD has that right here with RVD rolling papers.

Sweet! Hey, what about a #KhaliTrolley? Khali and RVD say Riddle should focus on Sheamus. Good luck from Khali and R! V! D! Riddle rides off towards gorilla, but will he be ready to smoke the Fella?

 

WWE United States Championship: Matt Riddle VS Sheamus!

Bro… The Fella has had beef with Riddle since day one, but perhaps it’s just Riddle’s personality being so nonchalant, it’s like he doesn’t care. Will Riddle show Sheamus how serious he can get with the gold on the line?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and bro, this one’s going to be lit!

Review:

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley

Both men try to get a strength advantage with a Collar & Elbow tie up before breaking it and going to holds now and still getting even ground. Now both men get some fighting in the corner going, delivering punches and strikes until they go to the outside where Lashley takes control and ragdolls McIntyre into the barricades before tossing Drew back in. Lashley keeps the onslaught on Drew and gets a quick pin attempt for a one and continues to get the beat down on the former champ. Lashley gets a lot of steam going as he goes to do another shoulder tackle into the corner, only to miss and Drew targets the arm of Bobby. Momentum shifting into Drew’s favor as Drew getting things going for him, suplexes and strikes galore as he goes for the Future Shock DDT. Lashley puts Drew into the corner to get separation but Drew catches the strike attempt and catches lashley into Northern Lights Suplex for a nearfall.

Bobby gets a reversal into a slam, a near fall and both men get some signature moves in. Drew hits the Glasgow Kiss and Bobby hits back with a one handed Spinebuster. After another near fall, Drew gets caught in a Hurt Lock but gets out of it quickly as they both go to the corner. Drew getting the swing this time and lands a good ol’ Alabama Slamma for a near fall of his own before trying to set up a sky-high superplex to the champion. Lashley fights off the attempt as Drew gets a Kimora Lock in to weaken the arm, Lashley fights him off again, catching Drew into a Tree of Woe but Drew sits up to launch Bobby in a Belly- To Belly. Lashley hits another one armed Spinebuster until Drew kips up and tells him to bring it, delivering a trifecta of Future Shock DDTs for a two count.

Drew in shock but goes to the corner, doing the countdown to the Claymore but Lashley rolls out of the ring. Drew tapping into a little bit of Undertaker and does a Tope Con Hilo to take MVP and Bobby out and takes Lashley back to the ring, setting up for something in from the top. Lashley catches the challenger and goes to apply another Hurt Lock but Drew runs out of the way to stun Lashley. As Lashley goes to do another Spinebuster, Drew rolls it into a Kimura Lock, perfectly on before Lashley inches slowly to the ropes to kick out. Lashley now, getting his aggression out, taking it to McIntyre in the corner until Drew gets separation, going for another Claymore until MVP distracts the former champion and misses the Claymore for Lashley to get the Hurt Lock in. Drew looked impressive to break out but Lashley didn’t break when Drew pushed off the corner and passes out from the pressure.

Tag Team Turmoil

Naomi & Lana vs Carmella & Billie Kay to start off the gauntlet style matchup as Naomi and Lana take the early advantage against Carmella. Carmella gets a tag onto Billie Kay but the advantage is still Lana and Naomi. When all four get in for chaos, Billie Kay goes for a roll up and beat Naomi and Lana for the next team to come out…

Riott Squad come out and take it to Billie early on but Carmella gets a tag and starts a beat down against Liv Morgan. Ruby breaks up the pin attempt but as Billie goes for the same pin attempt, the ref catches it and the Riott Squad get a tag and the advantage as Billie Kay gets brutalized, pinned and Carmella starts to beat up Liv before the next team come in…

Dana and Mandy come out and Ruby fights the two alone from the beat down as the fresher team gets things going and Liv barely gets a break of a pin attempt as Mandy and Dana work Ruby’s neck now. As Mandy cuts the ring off from Ruby, Ruby starts to fight out of the corner and gets Liv into the match now as they start the beat down of Mandy Rose. As the Riott Squad lose the advantage, Rose and Brooke get some damage with a superplex and Swanton combination but Liv gets a reversal on Dana and get the pinfall.

Natalya and Tamina are the last two to get in the match up and start the powerhouse assault on the Riott Squad. The two getting the best of the most tenured tag team in the whole match up as Liv tries to break out of their grasp. Ruby gets the tag and hit the codebreaker/senton combination to Tamina only for a two though and Tamina gets the advantage back, gets the tag to Natalya and they hit a Hart Attack. Natalya looks to get the Sharpshooter but changes her mind and tags Tamina in for the Superfly Splash to get the Day Two Tag Team Championship opportunity.

Seth Rollins vs Cesaro-

Cesaro goes quick into the offense with an Uppercut and goes for the Swing early but Seth rushes out and panics with Cesaro getting more and more of a beat down. Cesaro getting a good amount of offense going as Seth starts to target Cesaro’s arm and starts to pick things up after with his Superplex/Falcon Arrow combo after getting distance. Seth getting cocky again as he tries to take it to Cesaro but the Swiss Cyborg gets his strikes in again, taking down Seth with Uppercuts and goes for the swing again constantly, first time gets countered into a cradle, second time Seth gets to the ropes but the third time is the charm for nine rotations of the Swing and Sharpshooter. Seth breaks out of the hold and moves out of another Uppercut attempt from the corner, hurting Cesaro’s arm again as Rollins gets his high offense in, knees, Slingblades and a 360 Splash but nothing keeps Cesaro down. Seth tries for a ripcord knee but Cesaro changes it into a Neutralizer and a two count. Rollins crawls to the ropes and gets his legs grabbed again for yet ANOTHER Swing but flips out of it, into a Pedigree but fails to get the victory again.

Rollins gets his speech in about being God as he hits Cesaro in time to set up the Curb Stomp. Rollins gets caught into a Uppercut (second best Stomp counter) and takes Rollins spinning, first with a no handed Airplane Spin, Giant Swing and finishes it with a Neutralizer.

(Now get my Red and Pewter out of my sight on Rollins. They are winners unlike you tonight, Seth.)

New Day vs AJ Styles and Omos-

We… are getting Omos to start off against Kofi…? Oh no. New Day goaded AJ to start.

Kofi and AJ using their speed to go off and do some of their big moves or attempt them as AJ thinks he gets an advantage but Kofi gets it, with a slam and near fall, teasing AJ after a beat down as the champs get frequent tags, even getting a Unicorn Stampede off before Xavier holds AJ down for a bit. They keep teasing Omos to tag in but to no avail, New Day beating AJ down more. Kofi goes to tease AJ to get to tag AJ but tags Woods in to cut him off from tagging Omos. After a flurry from AJ to separate from Woods, Kofi tags himself in and fights AJ from tagging the big man in until AJ separates himself from the two and realizes, “I can tag the big man…? I CAN TAG THE BIG MAN!”

Omos comes in and Xavier can’t knock Omos down as Kofi tries to tag in and chop down the big man as The New Day… well to quote the remake of The Longest Yard… they shit themselves. Omos dismantles and smashes The New Day in the ring. Omos basically is breaking them apart as AJ flings over Omos for a Phenomenal Forearm and Omos two handed Chokeslams Kofi down for the win… Jesus Christ. They made him look like a billion dollars in the ring tonight.

Braun Strowman vs Shane McMahon-

As Braun comes in second, Elias and Ryker goes and beats Strowman down with chairs before the bell and Shane tells them to bring Braun in for it to start.

Shane grabs one of the chairs and beats Braun down with the chair over and over, going for a quick win and escaping but Braun, limping, stops Shane and taking more strikes from Shane for a good amount, limping and weakened as Shane breaks sheet metal from the top of the cage to continue the beat down and near fall. Braun now taking the fight to Shane as he stops Shane from escaping and tossing Shane into the cage walls over and over as Shane gets Braun’s hands now before getting squashed between the cage walls. Braun gets the full advantage in the match until his legs give out from earlier and Shane slides out, doing a swinging DDT and setting Braun up to go from Florida all the way to Cali with the Coast to Coast for a second near fall. Ryker and Elias climb the outside to get Shane out but Strowman runs into the cage to loosen all three of them. More offense goes on before Shane gets away and climbs out almost until he pisses off Braun and… gets caught, pulling the cage apart and dragging Shane back in. Braun getting a bright idea as he props Shane up on the cage, going up himself before Braun launches Shane off the cage and climbs back in, stumbling and standing up for himself and everyone who was bullied that’s watching before hitting a Running Powerslam for the win.

We get a small break for the cage to be taken down to honor the inductees to the 2020 Hall of Fame, Shatner, Liger, JBL, The Bella Twins, The British Bulldog, Titus O’Neal with the Warrior Award and the New World Order, Waltman, Hall, Nash and Hogan.

Bad Bunny & Damien Priest vs Miz & John Morrison-

Priest and Miz start it off and Miz goes to the corner and goads Bunny to come in and tags in as they walk around a little bit and Miz being an ass saying he can get the first shot as Bad Bunny pops Miz down. Bunny actually goes for a waist lock as Miz swings wild, Bunny ducks and gets another jab in before Miz gets pissed off and both of them trade blows in the corner of the ring before Miz gets the advantage, taking Bad Bunny into one corner and gets cocky a little before getting countered and Bunny flings Miz down with an arm drag. Miz rolls out and gets caught INTO A LA MAGISTAL AND A NEAR FALL! Miz had to get cheap after a a short pep talk with Morrison as Bad Bunny showing he’s better than Enzo with the rope spot. Bunny gets the advantage again as he slides under the ropes and does a well done Tilt-A-Whirl Head Scissor on Miz before tagging Morrison and getting some control in the match for M&M.

Miz gets back in and taunts Damien Priest by putting Bad Bunny in a headlock, inches away from Priest until Bunny gets some fight in him, dropping Morrison from the apron and almost getting to Priest, countering Miz’s stop with a Sunset Flip but getting beaten down after the pin attempt. Miz and Morrison take it to Bunny on the outside a bit. Morrison gets tagged in and taunts Booker T with a Spinarooni (A perfect one at that) as the tag to Miz gets in and Priest tries to get the crowd amped up. Miz cheap shots Priest and takes the ref’s attention away as M&M just keep embarrassing Bad Bunny with kicks in the corner. Miz gets cocky again and goes for his signature clothesline in the corner but Bunny stops him, dropping Morrison’s attack from the apron and hits a Tornado DDT onto Miz as he finally tags Damien Priest.

Damien goes to both men with his speed and strength, suplexing Miz into Morrison and hitting a chokeslam into a nearfall as all four men now get in the ring. Stereo Falcon Arrows, Damien Priest getting his step up Tope Con Hilo and Bunny with a crossbody. Priest gets Miz into the ring and Miz counters it into a Skull Crushing Finale into a pinfall. Bad Bunny goes to break it up and almost gets a tag in before Morrison pulls Bunny down. Bad Bunny having none of it from Morrison, hits a God Damn Destroyer as Priest props Miz up, gets the tag and lands a crossbody on the Miz for the win.

(Okay… Bad Bunny actually impressed me. Showed he cared. I give him props for that. I really do.)

Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks-

Both women size each other up for Collar & Elbows and Sasha shoves Bianca down, getting the trash talk started before Bianca kips up and shows a good amount of her –est’s, being Strong, Quick, Fast against Sasha as Sasha gets annoyed and gets caught by Bianca, rolling her out of the ring as Bianca goes to the outside. After some fighting on the apron, Sasha goes for a good suicide dive attempt but Bianca catches her and carries her to the ring as the match gets back to the ring. Bianca gets her usually offense going but Sasha actually grabs the hair of Bianca during the cartwheel and takes control this time around, getting her edge back and weakening the challenger. Sasha takes her to the corner and goes for the double knee attempt from the apron before Bianca catches her and drops her on her shoulder as they both go to the outside. Bianca’s hair gets caught by Sasha and Bianca takes control on the outside before the ref gets to 8 and both come back in. Bianca showed off her strength this time after a cradle attempt and does an impressive amount of time on a stalling suplex. Sasha keeps using Bianca’s hair to try to stop her after the Suplex but Bianca uses her hair as a ripcord effect into a clothesline. Sasha gets beat down from a Standing Shooting Star and getting propped into the corner as Belair goes for a 450 attempt from the top rope and Sasha counters, getting the momentum change momentarily.

Bianca catches some of Sasha’s high speed offense and does powerbomb pinfalls as Sasha kicks out of the first two, reversing the third with an X-Factor and taking control back with a Tornado DDt for another near fall. Banks now goes to the top for a Frog Splash. Sasha gets her anger and ruthlessness to wrap Bianca’s hair around her opponent into a Bank Statement and somehow, Bianca powers through and gets to the ropes before Sasha starts stopping on Bianca’s face after the break. Banks keeps going with the trash talking but Bianca shoves her into the corner post with some Shoulder Tackles and sets her up for a Superplex. Sasha fights her off and attempts a cartwheel kick before Sasha grabs the feet into a Tree of Woe position to land a Meteora. Sasha misses the first one, goes to a knee strike from the Tree as Bianca sits up so Sasha lands knees first into the turnbuckle and eats a 450 Splash for a near fall. Sasha tries to get control again after but gets whipped in the midsection with Bianca’s hair and after a fight to swing around, Bianca grabs Sasha up and lands the Kiss Of Death to win her first Women’s Championship in WWE.

Overall Score: 8/10

Well not too bad for the first fan attended event for WWE… barring NXT of course. Bad Bunny showed he can actually care about wrestling, wasn’t expecting a Canadian Destroyer… or I guess Puerto Rican Destroyer. Cesaro gets his moment, Bianca gets her moment. AJ Styles is now a Grand Slam Champion and every match except for the Tag Team Turmoil thing was pretty solid. I actually can’t wait for night two of Mania. Did it match Stand and Deliver Night One? No. That is still the best match of the week so far but they brought a good amount of fire this night and held a candle to Night Two all things considered. Well we have one more day for me to do Mania Week writing so let’s see if Night two can live up to Night One.

Just… people stop wearing my Bucs colors and lose in the process. Seriously. Disappointed me tonight Seth and New Day.
