PLAY BY PLAY

Rhea Ripley & Piper Niven VS Jazzy Gabert & Jinny!

The Mosh Pit Kid and the Scottish Viper are still heated rivals, but they’re willing to put that aside to put the Alpha Female and Spoiled Princess in their place! Will this duo of dominant forces be enough to overpower this combination of brawn, brains and beauty?

The teams sort out and each team seems to take a moment to talk things out. In the end, it is Piper and Jinny that start and fans rally up. Jinny circles with Piper but Jazzy distracts with trash talk. But Piper still sees Jinny coming and runs her over! And then CHOPS her down! Piper scoop slams Jinny down, and Rhea is impressed. Piper stands on Jinny as a cover, TWO. Piper tags in Rhea and fans are rallying as Rhea throws clotheslines on Jinny over and over. Rhea even gives Piper a ripcord lariat! Jinny bails out and is furious, but Rhea goes out to stalk up behind Jinny. Piper also drops down, and Jinny finds herself flanked by some fierce females. Rhea kicks Jinny low, then scoops Jinny to bring her up the stairs. Rhea tosses Jinny inside the ring! Jinny flounders but Rhea keeps between her and Jazzy.

Rhea whips Jinny corner to corner hard, then back the other way. Rhea catches Jinny to a cravat for a knee, then hits a basement dropkick! Rhea keeps Jinny away from Jazzy and wraps on a headlock. Jinny kicks at Piper, and then pulls hair! Jazzy gets a cheap shot in, but Rhea shoves her back. Jazzy ROCKS Rhea harder, and then Jinny decks her with a kick! Jinny clubs away on Rhea then tags Jazzy. Jazzy snapmares Rhea down and then clubs away! Cover, TWO! The fans and Piper rally for Rhea but Jinny tags back in. Jinny and Jazzy mug Rhea, then Jinny cravats to a high kick! Cover, ONE! Jinny is seething but her kick misses and Rhea rolls her up! TWO, and Jinny swings around to an Octopus! She claws Rhea’s arm! Fans rally as Rhea walks towards Piper, but Jinny drops down to SLAP away on Rhea’s face, and DECK her with a right! But Rhea KICKS back from the mat!

Both women are down and fans rally up! Jinny and Rhea crawl, hot tags to Jazzy and Piper! Piper the Viper rallies and rams the Alpha Female, but Jazzy stays up. Until Piper crossbodies! Jinny runs in but gets scoop slammed onto Jazzy! Piper sentons them both! Piper throws Jinny out while Jazzy gets to a corner. Piper runs in but into a SPEAR! Rhea breaks the cover! Jinny returns to ROUNDHOUSE Rhea! Piper headbutts Jinny, then catches Jazzy for a SAIDO! Rhea hobbles up and stands with Piper. Jinny and Jazzy are together outside, and Rhea shrugs. Rhea FLIES! She wipes out Jinny and Jazzy, but also falls pretty hard on her own! But she gets right back up and is roaring!! Rhea sends Jazzy in for Piper, who hauls Jazzy up to a Michinoku Driver! Cover, Piper and Rhea win!!

Winners: Piper Niven & Rhea Ripley, Piper pinning

And the powerhouses put away the Spoiled Alphas! There is respect now between them, will we see them team up again?

 

A-Kid VS Kassius Ohno!

The first Spanish-born superstar is here! But he’s got a killer pop quiz in the Knockout Artist for his debut! Will A-Kid get an A or a KO for Halloween?

The bell rings and Ohno doesn’t seem to take A-Kid seriously. A-Kid dares Ohno to bring it and fans are all fired up. Ohno and A-Kid tie up, and Ohno holds him off with one arm! A-Kid spins through to get up, and the two circle again. Ohno spins through to wrench and bring A-Kid down. A-Kid endures and reaches up but can’t headscissor. Fans rally and A-Kid keeps working, and manages a ghost pin! TWO, and Ohno backs off. Ohno and A-Kid tie up again, and A-Kid headlocks. Ohno stands up to lift A-Kid, but A-Kid holds tight as he works to power out. Ohno rolls around but A-Kid holds tight still. But then Ohno pries him off with a headscissors! A-Kid bridges as Ohno cranks on him, and then moves around to turn Ohno over! A-Kid has the leglock! He grabs arms for Cattle Mutilation! But Ohno rolls it off, stands up and throws A-Kid off.

Ohno smothers A-Kid in the corner to whip him corner to corner, but A-Kid leaps up and leaps again to arm-drag! And then leaps to dropkick! Ohno stays up but A-Kid dropkicks a leg out! Ohno throws a wristband to distract the ref, and he gets away with a throat chop! Ohno then snapmares A-Kid and drops a knee right on A-Kid’s head! Ohno grabs A-Kid’s arms and wrenches back, but fans rally up. A-Kid fights his way up but Ohno wrenches harder. Ohno gets A-Kid in a cobra clutch but A-Kid endures. A-Kid pries his way out but Ohno waistlocks and lifts to cradle, yoyo and senton onto A-Kid! Cover, TWO! A-Kid is proving tougher than the Wrestling Genius calculated. Ohno grabs A-Kid’s hands for knuckle locks and makes a cover, ONE as A-Kid gets an arm up. Ohno forces A-Kid back down, TWO, so Ohno tries again. A-Kid keeps getting his shoulders up, and then powers up!

Fans rally as A-Kid gets up. Ohno goes to squash A-Kid but A-Kid blocks and pushes back. A-Kid leaps up and huricanranas Ohno away! Fans are fired up as A-Kid throws forearms! And a dropkick! Ohno stays up and then dodges the second dropkick, but his senton gets caught into an armbar! But Ohno gets a ropebreak! A-Kid lets up, dodges Ohno’s boot, and rolls him up! TWO, and Ohno spins, into an armbar takedown! Ohno sits up and A-Kid holds tight, trying for a triangle now. Ohno makes it a cover, TWO as A-Kid gets a shoulder up. Ohno dead lifts and puts A-Kid on the ropes, for a guillotine catapult! A-Kid flops out of the ring, gasping for air, but Ohno also needs to catch his breath. Ohno goes out to fetch A-Kid and brings him up for a SLAPPING haymaker! The ring count reaches five as A-Kid CHOPS back! Ohno DECKS A-Kid then throws A-Kid at the ring at 8! A-Kid tiger feint kicks Ohno away and gets in, OHNO IS COUNTED OUT! A-Kid wins!!

Winner: A-Kid, by count out

Amazing! A-Kid outsmarts Ohno! But then Ohno is a sore loser and clobbers A-Kid from behind! The Wrestling Genius doesn’t like being made to look a fool, and he stomps A-Kid down! “Who do you think you are, huh!?” Ohno cravats A-Kid hard in the Kassius Klutch! But Tyler Bate runs out to save A-Kid! Bate whips, Ohno reverses, but Ohno bails out before Bate can lariat on the rebound! Fans sing for Bate as he stays by A-Kid’s side. The Big Strong Boy helps A-Kid up, but will Ohno get even with them both in time?

 

NXT UK shares interview footage with Killer Kelly.

Earlier this week, Double K was asked about when she’ll return to the ring. Kelly has waited four months and she’s finally cleared again. But apparently, she needs to pick a fight with someone first. And that’s when she spots Isla Dawn. She puts the mouth guard in and goes hunting.

 

Roy Johnson VS Joseph Conners!

Big Wavy is back in NXT UK! He isn’t a shiny new toy, but that doesn’t mean the Righteous Killer will take kindly to him. Which one of these NXT UK originals gets a win on All Hallow’s Eve?

The bell rings and Conners says he “remembers” Johnson, and sarcastically says “welcome back.” Fans remember, too, and cheer for “Big Wavy! Big Wavy!” Johnson and Conners tie up. Johnson holds pat so Conners breaks off. They go again and Conners waistlocks, but Johnson bucks him off. They speed up and Johnson runs Conners over! Fans cheer and Johnson does a dance, but Conners runs in. Johnson dodges to forearm and whip but Conners reverses to LARIAT! Conners throws Johnson into buckles and then throws big body shots! The ref counts and backs Conners off at 4. Fans boo as Conners comes back to stomp away. Conners drags Johnson up to bump him off buckles again, and then brings him around towards the post.

Conners pulls Johnson against the post Bow ‘n’ Arrow style, but lets up at 4, to basement dropkick him deeper in! “Nice ta see ya, Roy!” Conners shouts as he dropkicks again! The ref checks on Johnson as Conners hits a third! Conners shouts “This is MINE!” as Johnson falls to the floor. Conners puts Johnson in on the apron to CLUB away on his back! Conners rams Johnson into the edge then shoves him into the ring. “What do you think, Nigel? Am I good enough?” Conners wants to know the British icon’s opinion, and Nigel says Conners is doing just fine. Conners whips but Johnson holds ropes to hold it off. Conners clubs and whips but Johnson reverses to forearm smash! Johnson whips to hit a back elbow! Fans fire up as Johnson hits a corner clothesline, and a backbreaker!

Fans cheer as the straps come down and Johnson lifts Conners up. Johnson scoops but Conners rakes eyes to basement bulldog into buckles! Last Chancery Snap! Then, DON’T LOOK DOWN! Cover, Conners wins!

Winner: Joseph Conners, by pinfall

Conners sarcastically pats Johnson on the shoulder as he again talks to the imaginary person in the buckle pad. Did Conners just send Big Wavy back to the bench? Is Conners himself just going up towards the title?

 

Kay Lee Ray is here!

The NXT UK Women’s Champion barely lets Joseph Conners finish leaving as she makes her own entrance. The Lethal Lass goes to the ring and gets a mic to say, “NXT UK Universe, your day is about to get so much better” now that she’s here. KLR says today is even better because there’s no Toni Storm! Toni is just gone and disappeared, because KLR has the title. And Toni doesn’t have any friends in the back to be upset about it, so that’s the last of Toni in NXT UK.

But speaking of the locker room, KLR thinks it’s hilarious her name is coming out of the the mouth of the blue-eyed, blue-haired little Xia Brookside. Fans start chanting and that gets on KLR’s nerves. KLR says Xia thinks KLR cost her the title shot because of that Women’s Battle Royal. And that KLR cheated to win? In reality, KLR is just smarter. KLR is a realist, and “while that little girl was crying,” KLR did what she could never do, and what no one backstage will always fail to do: become NXT UK Women’s Champion. Whether or not anyone else will ever be champion, one thing is true: the Lightning From Down Under has just been gone. Will Toni Storm ever return? Or will KLR reign forever?

 

Gallus speaks.

“Is it recording? Listen to this.” Mark Coffey says that Gallus made a statement and got a big score for the firm. Imperium needs to take note that they don’t have all the gold. This is Gallus’ kingdom, and Imperium just lives in it. Next week, big brother Joe Coffey will make his return to the ring, and get another big score for the firm. This is STILL their kingdom. But will Joe get a big win towards facing “big jolly Wally” for the United Kingdom Championship?

 

Jordan Devlin VS Dave Mastiff!

The Irish Ace claims to be the biggest star on the brand, but the Bomber from Black Country disagrees. With Walter waiting for someone to be worthy of challenging him, will the winner of this match be one step closer to challenging the Ring General?

Devlin attacks just seconds before the bell! He and Mastiff brawl and Mastiff makes him pay for it. Mastiff whips to the corner but Devlin slides out. Devlin grins, but Mastiff chases after. They get back in the ring and Devlin stomps, but Mastiff has his foot! Devlin SLAPS Mastiff, but Mastiff just grins. Mastiff flips Devlin then whips him to back drop him! Devlin begs Mastiff to wait, but Mastiff sees the sucker punch coming and SLAPS Devlin down first. Mastiff rains down elbows, then stomps Devlin down. Mastiff drags Devlin up and throws a big European Uppercut! Devlin ends up in a corner, but Mastiff TOSSES Devlin across the way! Mastiff runs in but Devlin boots him. Devlin hops up but Mastiff grabs him with both hands! Devlin hotshots Mastiff’s arm on the rope! Devlin hurries in to get the arm again, for another hotshot!

Mastiff shakes out the arm but Devlin is on him with a wrench. Devlin wrings Mastiff out to the mat then hits the standing moonsault! Cover, TWO! Devlin keeps his cool as Mastiff works on his arm. Devlin drives elbows into Mastiff’s face then stalks him to the corner. The ref counts but Devlin laces the arm on the ropes to pull. Devlin lets up to then stomp and yank the arm. Devlin brings Mastiff out for a double knee strike! Devlin has the bad arm and stands on Mastiff’s head as he pulls! And then Devlin falls back to yank on the arm more! Fans rally up for Mastiff but Devlin stands on Mastiff’s face again. Devlin pulls on the arm and yanks the arm again! Fans boo but Devlin soaks up the heat. Devlin elbows Mastiff in the face again, and then wrenches to wring Mastiff out again. Devlin drops a leg on the arm for a short-arm scissors. Mastiff endures and fans rally up.

Mastiff throws big haymakers but Devlin just wrenches tighter! Mastiff keeps his shoulder up so it isn’t also a cover, and he fights back with more haymakers. Devlin pulls harder on the arm scissor again, but Mastiff refuses to quit. Fans rally and Mastiff works his way up and around! He has a cover, TWO, and he dead lifts to an electric chair drop! Both men are down but fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” Devlin slowly rises and gets to ropes. Devlin comes back to throw a big right! Mastiff gives it back, so Devlin hits again. They brawl back and forth, but Mastiff ROCKS Devlin! Devlin runs in, but gets caught! Mastiff holds him there, to then shift and overhead suplex! Devlin writhes now as Mastiff stands back up. Mastiff whips Devlin and runs him over with a clothesline! And drops a big senton! Cover, TWO!! Devlin survives but Mastiff won’t let up.

Mastiff slaps feeling into his bad arm and hauls Devlin up into position. Mastiff powerbomb lifts, but Devlin slips out to kick away on the left leg! Devlin has the bad arm and pulls, but Mastiff is too much to reel in! Devlin keeps trying, but Mastiff yanks him into a headbutt! Devlin headbutts back! The Irish Ace won’t be denied, but Mastiff does reverse the whip to send Devlin tumbling up and out! Mastiff and Devlin are each gasping for air, but Mastiff goes out to fetch Devlin. Mastiff fireman’s carries but Devlin gets free and on the apron. The Penalty Kick is blocked! Fireman’s carry, rolling senton on the floor! Mastiff crushes Devlin but his bad arm is still bothering him. The referee tells them to get back in and Mastiff pushes Devlin in. Devlin bails out to the apron but Mastiff is on him. Devlin hotshots the arm again! Slingshot cutter!

Devlin hurries up top, MOONSAULT! Direct hit, cover, TWO!! Mastiff survives and Devlin is furious! The fans rally up but Devlin drags Mastiff into the drop zone. Devlin climbs up again, MOONSAULT onto boots! Devlin flops all the way to the other corner, Mastiff runs, INTO THE VOID! But Devlin slumps halfway out of the ring, and then all the way to the floor! Mastiff goes out to fetch Devlin again, frustrated as he is. Mastiff drags Devlin up and in again, but Devlin stays on the apron. Mastiff meets Devlin at the corner, then hops up to bring Devlin up top, and into a fireman’s carry! Devlin fights out and PELES! Devlin uses the top rope for a SUPER DEVLINSIDE!! Cover, Devlin wins!!

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by pinfall

The Ace trumps the Bomber! But will Devlin hit the jackpot of a United Kingdom Championship match in the near future?

 

NXT UK Media spots Alexander Wolfe and Ilja Dragunov.

The German Ax Man and the Moscow Madman seem to be arguing about something. But when asked, Wolfe says it’s nothing. This is private business. Dragunov has to make up his mind. But imagine the good Imperium could do for him! Or what Imperium could do to make things harder for him. Wolfe leaves before Dragunov can answer, and Dragunov looks very torn. What side will Dragunov choose?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Another solid episode from NXT UK, giving WWE fans something to watch today if they’re not into Crown Jewel. The women’s tag match was match shorter than I expected, but it was pretty solid. Rhea and Piper win to kinda end the feud already, but it also feels like this was the exact moment Rhea learned she was heading to NXT America for her current run. Piper will surely hold the fort against Jinny and Jazzy, and we’re even getting some more interview stuff with her next week, so that sounds like a great push for her. Kay Lee Ray calls out Xia Brookside over her videos, as well as points out how Toni Storm hasn’t been around. I feel like we are getting what I said last week: Xia gets her match with KLR, but doesn’t win, and it’s Toni’s triumphant return that finally tests KLR’s reign. It will likely make up for how the TakeOver: Cardiff match just fell short.

Ohno VS A-Kid was a great debut match for the younger star, and it was great for him to win, even by count out. But now it seems like things shift to Ohno VS Bate since Bate made the save. I’m a little surprised by that given Bate is now involved with things on NXT America. Maybe Bate will just train A-Kid in kayfabe, as opposed to taking his place in the story. Conners VS Johnson was an okay match, and it does seem a shame Big Wavy hasn’t had more to do on NXT UK TV. Conners still wins, though, so that doesn’t really help things. Conners should get into a real rivalry with a guy like Johnson, that’d probably be great for both of them. Devlin VS Mastiff was a great main event, as each of the main events from the last few weeks have been, but clearly Devlin wanted to show he could be a “Big Strong Boy” like Bate. The top rope saido suplex was amazing, though, and Devlin winning makes a lot of sense. I just don’t know if Devlin’s going to circle back to Bate or what.

Gallus had a great bit of promo, and they’re continuing to shift into Tweener mode against the Heels of Imperium. I’m pretty sure Joe Coffey beats whoever his return opponent is next week, and I’d expect Imperium to respond to being called out by Gallus a couple times by now. And given how Wolfe keeps trying to get Ilja Dragunov on their side, I wonder if it backfires, and Dragunov ends up an unlikely ally to Gallus so that there’s 4v4 against Imperium in at least an 8 Man Tag, before things split off for NXT UK Tag Team Championships, WWE/NXT United Kingdom Championship and then Dragunov VS Wolfe on the side.

My Score: 8.2/10

The Braggadocios learned savvy from THE Brian Kendrick, but in a roundabout way, the Muscle of El Monte learned aggression from The Psycho Killer! Who puts the lessons learned into practice now that WWE is past WrestleMania?

It seems Old Man Ciampa’s lessons paid off! Will Atlas lift himself up towards a title opportunity now that Santos Escobar isn’t the champion?

 

August Grey VS Tony Nese!

#RetroAG finally got payback on Daivari Dinero, then was weirdly congratulated by him after defeating Adonis a few weeks ago. Will Daivari congratulate Grey again when he defeats Daivari’s fellow 205 Live OG? Or will the Premier Athlete prevent the new wave from taking over his brand?

Well Daivari is showing which side he’s on by accompanying Nese to the ring! Though he does get left hanging on that fist bump. Daivari joins commentary as the bell rings and Grey circles with Nese. They tie up, Nese waistlocks and slams Grey down! Nese then flexes on Grey, but fans are on Grey’s side as he and Nese circle again. Grey and Nese tie up, Grey waistlocks, but Nese hooks a leg to get the drop toehold. Nese floats to a facelock but Grey slips out to a hammerlock.

JAB!

Nese puts Grey in a corner but Grey dodges to CHOP and stomp away! Grey fires off hands, the ref counts and Grey stops at 4. Grey whips, Nese reverses but Grey comes back to LARIAT!

Fans fire up and Daivari has to get out of his seat because of that. Grey gets back to the ring, the ring count is 5 of 10! It keeps going, 7 of 10 but Nese is still down. Will Grey learn from last time?

NOPE! Grey goes out at 9 because he wants to win this in the ring! Daivari brings up how that messed him up with Mansoor, but Grey tells him to shut up. Nese rolls Grey up, but Grey turns it around! Grey wins!!

Winner: August Grey, by pinfall

What was that about messing up? Grey won “the right way,” but Daivari says it was just dumb luck! Will AG keep getting the better of the OG on 205 Live?


My Thoughts:

A very fun, very good 205 Live to get back to new content after WrestleMania. Atlas VS Adonis was a very good match, started to feel like the early days of 205 Live that we just relived last week. Atlas and Adonis being names from Greek myth, I kinda want them to try being a team at some point. Though at the same time, that feels like something early 2000’s WWE would do and maybe it’s best if they don’t? Who knows, maybe give it a try, see if something comes of it.

Grey VS Nese was also really good, and the story that’s building with Grey and these OG is pretty good. Daivari on commentary was explaining how Grey winning against Adonis with the feet on ropes was a twinkling of him being compatible with Daivari & Nese, who are solidly Heel. But Grey resisting that and doing things the solidly Face way is a good story in itself, so I hope this is how Grey builds himself up to at least try for the Cruiserweight Championship. Grey’s got a lot of innovative moves, as well, so I’d definitely be okay with seeing him try those with Kushida, maybe even Swerve and Ruff.

My Score: 8.2/10

Heyman says he would be honored.

First is Edge, an ELEVEN time world champion, married to a hall of famer and is a hall of famer in his own right. Then there’s Daniel Bryan, a FIVE time world champion, also married to a hall of famer, and will “YES! YES! YES!” his way into the hall of fame when he retires, which should be soon after Roman stacked them and pinned them together. Take all of their accomplishments combined and the enormity of both men’s legacies, who came up against Roman, it was practically a Handicap match in THE main event of WrestleMania. McAfee agrees on commentary.

Roman says he took a page from Heyman’s playbook and Babe Ruth’d it! He called his shot: He was gonna smash ’em, stack ’em, and pin ’em 1-2-3. Then, they would #AcknowledgeMe. Now to be honest, it’s embarrassing! If Roman was another man, he’d never want to be in that situation. WWE will probably never put him in a Triple Threat again after that. Nobody wants to face Roman! No one wants that to happen to them! These were hall of famers, and he smashed ’em, stacked ’em and pinned ’em. And if he’s doing that to guys like that, who will want it next? Nobody! “Don’t nobody want to step to me now!” Not worth it! No one measures up to Roman, no one is on his level.

So after fulfilling the obligations and opened Roman’s show, cut the check, fire up the jet, time to go home. Heyman takes the mics for Roman, but here comes CESARO! The Swiss Cyborg finally had and won his first singles match at WrestleMania, and is now getting in Roman’s face! He looks at the Universal Championship, then gets a mic. Roman still takes his leave, but Cesaro figured as much. Cesaro doesn’t get to say his piece, but will he make Roman acknowledge him?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville talk backstage.

Cesaro walks by, they congratulate him on his Mania win, but he asks if they saw what “that son of a bitch” Roman did. No one is going to step up? Cesaro will. Not even for the title! He just wants a match tonight. Sonya says she’ll talk to Roman and see if he’ll accept that. Cesaro is fine with that, but is Pearce?

 

Rey Mysterio w/ Dominik Mysterio VS Otis w/ Chad Gable!

While the King and Prince of Lucha didn’t get those SmackDown Tag Team Championships off Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode, neither did the Alpha Academy. This battle has been brewing for months after Gable unleashed The Dozer on Rey’s ribs. Will Rey get his revenge and his redemption going 1v1 with the big man?

The bell rings, and Otis CLOBBERS Rey with his gut already! Otis gets Rey up, CLUBS him on the back, then looms over him as he writhes. Otis scoops Rey, pops him up to a military press, and then DROPS Rey! Gable cheers Otis on while Dom coaches Rey up. But Otis brings Rey up to SLIDE him out! Rey rolls through to come back and shoulder into Otis! Rey fires forearms, hotshots Otis away, then goes up a corner, only for Otis to trip him! Rey ends up in a Tree of Woe, Otis stomps a mudhole into him! The ref backs Otis off, but Otis comes back, only for Rey to sit up! Otis hits buckles, Rey turns around and leaps to SEATED SENTON! BASEMENT SEEATED SENTON! Cover, TOW!

Rey kicks but Otis blocks the whip. Otis whips Rey away, Rey ducks and springboards, into Otis’ arms! POWERSLAM! Gable tells Otis to keep on Rey and Otis drags him to a drop zone. Otis goes up the corner, leaps, but FLOPS as Rey rolls out of the way! Dom coaches Rey up, Gable shouts to Otis, and Rey dropkicks Otis onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Otis comes back! Rey trips Otis onto ropes, and hits the 619! Rey hurries up top again but Otis is back up! Rey leaps, for a CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Cover, Rey wins!!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by pinfall

That’s a huge win for Mysterio! The Dozer is furious but will he have to go back to the drawing board?

 

Kayla Braxton talks with Paul Heyman.

And from the look on Heyman’s face, he is both shocked and offended that SmackDown management wants Roman to compete tonight! It’ll be non-title, but will it even happen? We find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Kayla asks if Heyman accepts the challenge. That’s the question? Yes, because that’s what we do around here in the WWE: “We put smiles on the faces of Neanderthals, like Cesaro.” Does Kayla have any clue the enormity of the star power that is possessed by Roman and its affect on the ENTIRE WWE Universe? What happened on Saturday? Oh~ a rain delay! Rain delay, Heyman’s “kosher tuchus.” Those were the tears of the angels descending upon Tampa over the BEATING Roman was going to give, and that is what happened! Roman walked out champion, and neither Bryan nor Edge walked out of Raymond James at all.

And as Heyman was walking back with Roman, they were stepping in puddles, and Heyman said, “My goodness! Tears still descending from up above!” Except it wasn’t from the skies, but from the locker room. A visionary like Seth Rollins had to lower himself to face “a knuckle-dragging, slack-jawed, bucktooth Swiss quisling like Cesaro.” A billion dollar body but a 10 cent brain and THIS is who emerges to get in the face of Your Tribal Chief?! Cesaro is physically capable of being a great opponent, but he is not an attraction. He’s a joke!

So let’s put an end to the joke! Stop the train before it leaves the station! They will give Cesaro what he wants, tonight live on SmackDown! Cesaro in the main event against THE main event, Jey Uso. Of course Heyman had a way to change the course. But will Cesaro blast through the Right Hand Man to get at the Head of the Table, whether they like it or not?

 

Sami Zayn heads to the ring!

The Great Liberator didn’t defeat his long-time frenemy, and he didn’t even have Logan Paul on his side! And Sami loves to see the headlines outside of the one that is most accurate: “Sami Zayn Once Again SCREWED!” Where is that one, huh?! Well, does it exist…? Sami says it was his vindication! The stars were aligned, and he had the one star that matters in Logan Paul! Logan was supposed to help Sami expose the WWE and celebrate his grand victory, but that’s not how it went down, did it?

And here’s why: Logan’s mind was poisoned by Kevin Owens and the WWE Universe talking bad about Sami, like he’s a crackpot! It was poisoned by management, and the “corporate mouthpiece,” Michael Cole! They got in Logan’s head and Sami could sense it and feel it as he hugged Logan! And then in the match, of course he was distracted! Sami was worried about Logan! And that is the only reason, THE ONLY REASON, Kevin squeaked out that win. And Kevin is back there, obviously. Sami will not be denied vindication! Sami calls Kevin out for a rematch! There’s nothing to distract him, there are no toxic fans or stupid Logan Paul and his warped mind! No distractions, no way for Kevin to steal this!

But that’s why Kevin won’t come out, because- Wait, Kevin DOES come out to the ring! Kevin says if Sami’s gonna keep making excuses, then here we go! This WrestleMania rematch happens, after the break!

Sami Zayn VS Kevin Owens!

The bell rings and Sami bails out! Kevin smirks because he knew this would happen. Kevin slides out but Sami slides in. Then Kevin slide sin, but that’s a fake-out! Sami is on the outside and Kevin fires off! Kevin bounces Sami off the desk, puts him in the ring, and CHOPS him to a corner! And CHOPS again! Sami stumbles to another corner but Kevin gives him body shots! The ref counts, Kevin lets off, and then comes back, but Sami hits first! Sami whips corner to corner, Kevin comes back to CLOBBER Sami! BACK SENTON! Sami is in a corner, Kevin runs in but Sami bails out. Kevin goes to the apron but Sami hotshots him! Then BLINDSIDES him!

Sami rains down furious fists from all sides! Sami lets off to snarl and seethe. Sami puts Kevin on the ropes and chokes him! The ref counts, Sami lets off at 4 and CLUBS Kevin! Kevin gets up to CHOP back! Sami stomps Kevin to a corner, digs his boots in, and even stands on Kevin! The ref counts, Sami lets off, and then Sami throws haymakers. Kevin hits back, counter punches, and backs Sami down. Sami jawbreakers in return! Sami CHOPS Kevin against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Kevin reverses but Sami kicks back, only for Kevin to LARIAT! Kevin reels Sami in, suplexes to hang Sami out to dry, and Sami springs off the ropes to hit the mat!

Kevin fires off on Sami in a corner, hoists him up top and CHOPS him again! Kevin climbs up, Sami throws elbows and then adjusts to sunset flip POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Kevin survives, Sami argues with the ref, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Sami is again fighting Kevin off on the top rope. Kevin hits back, climbs back up, and Sami throws headbutts! Kevin falls back, Sami adjusts and leaps, but Kevin gets clear! Kevin SUPERKICKS Sami down! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives but Kevin hurries right to the top rope! SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives again and Kevin is beside himself! Kevin shakes his head as he stands Sami up, whips him, but Sami bails out to avoid a pop-up. Kevin pursues Sami as the ring count climbs, and gets him on the ramp to throw him into barriers! Kevin puts Sami back in at 5 of 10, knees low then whips, but Sami slips through the pop-up to get an arm!

Kevin fights the Half ‘n’ Half, then pump handles for the PACKAGE USHIGOROSHI!! Cover, TWO!!! Sami still survives that move, just like WrestleMania! Kevin gets annoyed, but he again has to pursue Sami on the outside. Kevin drags Sami from the barriers, puts him in, and kicks, but no Stunner! Sami again bails out, Kevin grabs at him on the apron, but Sami rakes Kevin’s eyes! The ring count is still climbing, though, but Sami wants to run away! Sami gets himself counted out, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by count-out

Kevin wins again, but it seems Sami didn’t want revenge that badly. But Kevin pursues and goes after Sami with fists at the ramp! Kevin puts Sami in the ring, kicks and STUNNERS! It seems Kevin still hasn’t beaten sense into Sami, will these two #JustKeepFighting?

 

Apollo Crews speaks.

“All of Nigeria has not stopped celebrating, ever since I smashed Big E into oblivion and I became the new Intercontinental Champion!” And he would give Big E a rematch tonight, but he’s not here. And do you know why? Two words: Nigerian Nail! That is the name of the move used by this giant beside Apollo here. This is his commander of the guard, Azeez, former member of the Nigerian Elite Guard. If anyone dares come for Apollo, they will be annihilated by the Nigerian Nail!

 

The Street Profits head to the ring!

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins are going to be facing the Dirty Dawgs for the tag titles later tonight, but first they are going to celebrate the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion! This will be the EST of celebrations, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Ford says it’s Friday Night, and he’s feelin’ right! Dawkins says it is official takeback season! Time to do spring cleaning to send Dolph & Roode back through that time warp they came out of so they can return to 1986. Oh, and about getting the shine back on those SmackDown tag titles! Right! The Dirty Dawgs will get snatched, but that’s not the only reason why the Solo cups are raised high. It’s been a long time, and they got some inspiration this past weekend. Some motivation! WrestleMania was a night for the ages, a night to remember!

One match in particular will be something Ford tells his grandkids about! That is the historic, the glass ceiling shattering SmackDown Women’s Championship! ROLL TAPE! Sasha Banks VS Bianca Belair, WrestleMania 37 Night One, the main event! Headlines were marking how amazing it was even before the bell, and no one could deny it after! We have a NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion, and it is Bianca Belair! Dawkins has the feels, fam! Ford says that as we just saw, the party isn’t over! The champagne for the campaign is not done popping. Saturday, that was a genuine moment that will be with them for the rest of their lives. And they just want to share that joy with the fans!

So they introduce to use, the roughest, the toughest, the quickest, the strongest, and the greatest part of Ford’s life, the NEW WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, the EST, no no no, THE E S T of the W W E, BIANCA BELAIR!! Bianca makes her entrance, Ford and Dawkins sing her praises and the fans cheer on their ThunderDome screens! Bianca is handed a mic, and she feels like he’s been floating since Saturday! Her mind is blown, her heart is filled, and she feels blessed. But despite the setbacks, the struggles, she never stopped believing that this moment was possible.

And her family has been making history for generations, they are the ones who showed her that when you demand greatness from yourself, that no matter how hard the game gets, you can change the game! If you were to have asked her a year ago if she could ever imagine main-eventing Mania, winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship… Well she probably would’ve said yes! But that’s not because she’s cocky. That’s because she’s unapologetically her. Everyone has a little EST in them, and when you find it, you know that you’re talented and working hard, you never need to apologize for saying you are the B-E-S-T! “Because if you can dream it, you can do it.”

Bianca showed up, showed out, but it isn’t just about her. Sasha Banks, Bianca thanks you. There is no one she would’ve rather shared that spotlight because Sasha pushed her to her limits and it takes two. They BOTH made history. But… If Sasha ever tries to forget it, just know that Bianca left you with something to remember her by. That hair whip did leave a mark… But this is also about Sasha, too. This moment is so much bigger than them. This is about all the girls watching at Raymond James and at home, who saw Bianca and saw themselves. This is for you! That was Mania magic, but we’re only getting started!

Ford and Bianca hug, Dawkins joins in for a family moment, and Bianca says it’s time to drop the cups, throw the tissues away, and get those titles again. They only wear gold in this house. The Profits and the new SmackDown Women’s Champion are up, and #WeWantTheSmoke! Will this trio become truly golden after tonight?

 

Backstage interview with Sasha Banks.

After seeing Bianca out there, she is in no mood. The Boss still has the mark on her side, and she seethes. She takes a second to cool off, but it doesn’t work, and she storms off. Will Sasha find a way back to that title and to WrestleMania revenge?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley.

The Role Model acknowledges that Cesaro was super impressive with the UFO spin, as footage is replayed, but what about Sasha? She probably wants a rematch but is so angry she can’t say it. While Bayley was super busy trying to save both nights of Mania, Bianca was in the main event crying. Even before the match began! No one wants to say it but Bayley will: those tears was because Bianca thought she couldn’t win. Is that who you want as champion? And now she’s showboating and arrogant! That is NOT the kind of champion we should want!

So there is only one way to fix this, and restore dignity to the title: for Bayley, the longest reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion ever, to challenge Bianca and take that title! Will Bayley cut Sasha in line and get back to the gold first?

 

SmackDown Tag Team Championships: The Dirty Dawgs VS The Street Profits!

The Show-Off & The Glorious One made it through #WrestleManiaSmackDown and its Fatal 4 Way with these titles, but now they’re 2v2 with Ford & Dawkins! Will takeback season work out for the fam? We find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and the titles are raised. Teams sort out, Ziggler starts with Dawkins and they circle. They feel out the grapple, Ziggler shoots in but Dawkins sprawls then shifts to a waistlock. Ziggler gets the ropebreak, the ref counts but Ziggler elbows free! Ziggler dares Dawkins to get up, then he gets Dawkins only for Dawkins to DECK him! Tag to Ford, the Profits whip Ziggler, Dawkins drops and Ford dropkicks Ziggler down! Cover, TWO! Ford gets Ziggler back up, snapmares him to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Ford keeps Ziggler from Roode, wrenches and armlocks to tag in Dawkins. Ford wrenches the arm again and again, Dawkins drops ax handles!

Dawkins wrenches, tags Ford back in, and now Ford drops ax handles! Ford mocks Roode but Ziggler ROCKS Ford! Roode tags in but Ford reverses the whip to send Ziggler into Roode! Tag to Dawkins, the Profits double whip to DOUBLE FLAPJACK! Ziggler comes in, but gets a DOUBLE FLAPJACK onto Roode! Ford throws Ziggler out, Dawkins gives Roode the CYCLONE SPLASH! Dawkins keeps moving, BULLDOG! Then a BIG shoulder tackle! The Profits are fired WAY up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Dawkins covers Roode, TWO! Dawkins keeps on Roode with a headlock, Roode powers out but Dawkins runs him over! Things keep moving, Dawkins leaping back elbows! Roode avoids the cyclone but Dawkins elbows him away. Ziggler distracts but Dawkins DECKS him, only to run into a GLORIOUS SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler tags in and DECKS Ford! Ziggler gets Dawkins up for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler tags Roode back in, the Dirty Dawgs mug Dawkins and Roode stomps Dawkins down. Roode brings Dawkins up to suplex high and hard, covers, TWO! Roode argues the count but it was fair.

Tag to Ziggler, the Dawgs mug Dawkins, and Ziggler taunts Ford before daring Dawkins to stand. Dawkins gets up, Ziggler slaps him around, but his dropkick is caught for a CATAPULT! Ziggler hits buckle and then the mat! Ford fires up on his corner and fans rally on the ThunderDome screens. Ziggler and Dawkins crawl, hot tags to Ford and Roode! Ford rallies with big clotheslines, then he TOSSES Ziggler for good measure! Dropkick for Roode, dropkick for Ziggler! Ford dodges Roode to BLOCKBUSTER! Ford CLOBBERS Ziggler! Ford whips Roode, Roode reverses and reels For din but Ford lands out of the back suplex to give a back suplex! Kip up and STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!

Roode bails out to join Ziggler, Ford has a target! Ford builds speed, tags Dawkins as he FLIES! Direct hit to the Dawgs and Ford gets Roode in for Dawkins! Dawkins gets Roode up, THE ANOINTMENT! Tag to Ford, he climbs, and leaps FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, Ziggler breaks it!! Dawkins gets Ziggler up but Ziggler throws him to clothesline Dawkins and himself out! Ford DECKS Ziggler, gets Roode up and fires off fists in a corner! The ref backs Ford off, and Ziggler sneaks a tag in! Ford doesn’t know, he whips but Roode reverses. Ford goes up and over, into a ZIGZAG!!! Cover, the Dawgs win!!

Winners: The Dirty Dawgs, by pinfall

As fired up as Ford was, Ziggler & Roode find a way to survive! Is this the end of takeback season? Will the Dawgs move on to new challengers in the wake of WrestleMania?

 

Backstage interview with Cesaro.

While denying him a match with Roman Reigns, Heyman said some rather derogatory things about Cesaro. His response? “I think Paul Heyman is right.” Cesaro admits he has buck teeth, a slack jaw, and that he isn’t the smartest. And with his long arms, maybe he does look like a Neanderthal. But he’s wrong about one thing: Cesaro DOES belong in the ring with Roman Reigns, and will prove it tonight by beating the Right Hand Man!

 

Heyman talks with Roman in their VIP room.

Roman doesn’t like that Cesaro isn’t just accepting things. Roman wants Jey to teach him a lesson. Will Jey Uso check Cesaro off the list for Roman?

 

Natalya w/ Tamina VS Shayna Baszler w/ Nia Jax!

Though the #BOAT and Daughter of Superfly won the Tag Team Turmoil, they could not win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Can the Queen of Harts redeem herself with another win over the Queen of Spades?

The bell rings, the two tie up and Natty gets a headlock. Shayna powers out, things speed up and Natty ducks to get a waistlock. Shayna blocks the lift, wrenches free and fires off hands and kicks! Shayna knees but Natty deflects it to get the legs! Natty steps through, but Shayna scramble’s and Nia saves her! Tamina storms over, Shayna gets back in the ring, but Natty is waiting! They tie up, Natty trips Shayna, floats to a facelock, but Shayna slips out to hammerlock. Natty gets up, slips through, wrenches, but Shayna wrenches back. Natty rolls, handsprings and gets a leg. Shayna sprawls to block, then shifts to a waistlock and slam, to the ARMBAR!

Natty endures, clasps hands, but Shayna pulls. Shayna stands to get the arm and hammerlocks it into the mat! This time, Tamina says Natty! Natty hotshots Shayna down, Nia storms over and the ref has to keep her and Tamina from throwing down. Natty gets in but Shayna KNEES Her down! Cover, TWO! Shayna grows frustrated, Natty goes to a corner and she elbows Shayna away. Natty spins, DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! Natty goes for legs but Nia gets on the apron! The ref reprimands but Shayna KICKS Natty down! KIRAFUDA, but Natty throws Shayna at Nia! Shayna stops herself, Natty rolls her up, AND WINS!

Winner: Natalya, by pinfall

Nia goes after Natty but Tamina SUPERKICKS her down!! Tamina and Natty aren’t done with the Irresistible Force or Queen of Spades! Will the second time around be the second generation superstars’ time to shine?

 

Jey Uso speaks.

“Cesaro, Cesaro. Boy, you’s a one hit move, huh? King of spin, king of swing, it’s all the same! That’s a cute airplane you did with no hands. But let me ask you something: can you do that with no teeth?!” You’re disrespecting the Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table! Now you’ve crossed the Right Hand Man, and now Jey has to get you! He’ll show you why he is #MainEventJey! Jey vows to #GETIM, and Roman says, “You heard the man. Now he’s gonna show you.”

 

Cesaro VS Jey Uso w/ Paul Heyman!

The Swiss Cyborg shows no fear in the face of the Reigns-ing, Defending, Undisputed, (hardly) Uncontroverted Universal Champion, but the NEW winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal wants to change that. Will Jey be the one to learn something from the original winner of that match?

The bell rings and Cesaro gets Jey right up with a SLAM! Cesaro headlocks, Jey powers out and things speed up, and Cesaro catches Jey for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Cesaro keeps his focus as Jey goes to the apron. Jey gets to a corner but Cesaro bumps him off buckles. Jey counter punches, SLAMS Cesaro’s hand on the crossbar, then pulls the arm through the bars! Jey then kicks, but Cesaro blocks to hotshot the leg! Cesaro BOOTS Jey down and then goes out to pursue. Cesaro leaps from the apron, into a SUPERKICK! Main Event Jey evens things in the main event as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns once more and Jey cranks on an armlock. Cesaro throws body shots, whips but Jey reverses, to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Jey keeps on Cesaro with a stomp to the shoulder! Jey ROCKS Cesaro with an uppercut, then wraps an arm around the ropes to pull! The ref counts, Jey lets off at 4, and then brings Cesaro around to suplex. Cesaro blocks it, then gets Jey up for a suplex of his own! Fans rally on their screens as Jey crawls his way to a corner. Cesaro snarls, aims at Jey and runs in, only to be put on the apron. Cesaro ROCKS Jey first, climbs up top, and leaps for a BIG CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Cesaro shakes out the arms, drags Jey back up, but Jey wrenches to WRING the arm out! SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Cesaro survives but he is in a daze as he gets to a corner. Jey runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! Cover, TWO! Cesaro shakes out the arms again but Jey sees him in a drop zone. Jey climbs up, but Cesaro gets up to DROPKICK Jey down! Jey hangs on to keep from falling to the floor, but Cesaro climbs up to get him. Cesaro gets Jey back to the top, Jey fights with body shots and Cesaro hops down. EuroUpper SHORYUKEN! Cesaro gets Jey up for a SUPER GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Jey survives but Cesaro keeps focus.

Jey crawls, Cesaro brings him around, and reels him in! Jey fights the Gotch to wring the arm but Cesaro cartwheels! Cesaro dodges to springboard EuroUpper! Cover, TWO! Cesaro is a bit surprised, but he gets Jey’s legs! Jey kicks Cesaro away, but Cesaro comes back. Jey blocks a boot but gets a EuroUpper! Jey ducks the clothesline to pop-up NECKBREAKER!! Cover, TWO!! Cesaro survives and Jey is furious! Both men slowly rise but Jey is after Cesaro first. Jey throws down haymakers, then SLAPS Cesaro! And slaps him more! Cesaro SLAPS back! And fires off furious palm strikes then furious EuroUppers!! Shots from all sides! Cesaro runs, and LARIATS! Cover, TWO!

Cesaro is seething, but he calls for the spin! Cesaro gets Jey into a SPINEBUSTER, to then get the wings! SWISS SWING!! Michael Cole & Pat McAfee count, but Cesaro doesn’t get past 5 before SETH ROLLINS attacks!!

Winner: Cesaro, by disqualification

The Architect won’t let it go! He doesn’t want anyone anywhere getting swung by Cesaro! Cesaro still wins the match because of this, but he is staggering about. Rollins shouts, “You were done with me?! You got lucky!! ONE TIME! This isn’t over! Nothing is over until I SAY IT’S OVER!! I am the END ALL BE ALL of this industry! And the sooner you figure it out, the better it’s gonna be!” The Savior of SmackDown has all but snapped, but will he be going for another spin before this is all said and done?


My Thoughts:

Well, this was a pretty good post WrestleMania episode. Then some stuff made it like most typical WWE programming. There are a few things that are clearly being set up for WrestleMania Backlash, and they’re all WrestleMania rematches because that’s literally what that PPV becomes when you name it that in such a lazy manner. I am glad Cesaro is the next one stepping up to Roman Reigns, but they’re clearly doing everything they can to stretch this story so that the match will happen at a PPV bigger than Backlash. Cesaro getting the runaround from Roman’s team was a good way to do it, but I’m not sure about Cesaro VS Rollins 2. It’ll be a great match, but is it really necessary? Of course, WWE did repeat the UFO airplane spin a lot, so them running it into the ground is actually a good sign that Cesaro will win, and is going to be the next challenger to Roman’s title.

Natty getting another fairly quick win over Shayna and Tamina knocking Nia down is surely a sign that we’re getting a rematch between those teams for the tag titles at Backlash. But if that is where Tamina & Natty are going to win the titles, it’s profoundly stupid. They should’ve just let Natty & Tamina win at Mania, and then it’d be about Nia & Shayna getting the belts back at Backlash, a much more logical route. The celebration promo for Bianca was great, and while Sasha wants a rematch, Bayley wants her own match with Bianca, so I’m hoping there’s a difference here in that Backlash gives us another Sasha VS Bayley match, winner faces Bianca at the PPV after that.

Dawgs VS Profits was a great match, especially for television, but I am really surprised the Profits didn’t win tonight. I get that the moment Bianca and the Profits are all wearing gold is going to be big, but then why not do that on the SmackDown After Mania? Make tonight feel big because it should be big! Is WrestleMania Backlash really going to be where they do it? I feel like that’s them forcing Backlash to feel special rather than letting it be special by surprise. Rey VS Otis was good, and clearly this feud isn’t over yet, and the winner of that will surely line up for the tag titles.

Kevin VS Sami tonight was also great stuff, a lot of similar spots to the match they had at Mania, but the count-out seems like another way to extend things. I have a feeling something’s gotta give at Backlash, and I hope Kevin & Sami finally start towards the tag titles. Apollo had a good promo to introduce Dabba-Kato’s new form, Commander Azeez, and the name of his finisher. The Nigerian Nail is pretty much a direct translation of the Samoan Spike, which is what the move was when Umaga used it. Big E VS Azeez has to be coming, perhaps with the stipulation that if Big E wins, he gets his rematch with Apollo at Backlash. Honestly, it all feels like WWE is spinning their wheels because Vince is rolling around in the $1 BILLION from NBC.

My Score: 8.2/10
