PLAY BY PLAY

Kevin Owens is in Hartford!

And Hartford is fired up to see the Prizefighter! “We’re going to kick off the new year early, and we’re going to kick it off with some fireworks, courtesy of Kevin Owens!” And why is that? Footage will show you why. Seth Rollins gave Kevin Owens a beat down for Christmas! The Architect and his new sidekicks beat Kevin down, then targeted Rey Mysterio’s United States Championship. Rollins was going to lose but the AOP went after the King of Lucha. And when Samoa Joe stood up to them, Rollins had Akam and Rezar go after him, too! The holidays were anything but happy for Kevin, Joe or Mysterio.

Kevin says the Architects of Pain have been running wild all over Raw, even putting him in the hospital. But guess what? Kevin will keep calling them out, keep getting beat down, but swears to take “one of you idiots down with me!” The problem is the consequences of the AOP’s actions hurt those Kevin respects. One name that comes to mind is Rey Mysterio. There aren’t a lot of people in the industry that Kevin respects, but after being hospitalized, it was sickening to see the AOP gang up on Mysterio and Rollins Curb Stomp him down. Those actions are why Mysterio lost to Andrade Almas at Madison Square Garden. Yes, last Thursday, Almas was able to defeat Mysterio and take the United States Championship!

Kevin says after watching the footage, he’s sick of studying film. And just as he wants, Rollins and the AOP appear! Rollins tells Kevin that “you still are failing to see the big picture!” This is not something Rollins chose, it is something forced upon him by Kevin and those like him “that think that they know best.” Rollins finds himself in this position as a “sacrifice.” Rollins sacrifices himself for the greater good. He is WWE’s wrestling savior! Kevin has left Rollins no choice but to impose his will. And if you resist, well, you saw what happened to Mysterio and Joe. The AOP will enforce Rollins’ will. But Kevin doesn’t care, he heads right for them! A new brawl begins on the ramp! Then to ringside! Rollins questions when Kevin is going to learn his lesson.

Things end up in the ring and Kevin is 2v1 in a corner as Akam and Rezar hammer and knee away. Rollins tells them to “teach him a lesson.” The mugging continues, but here comes Samoa Joe! And he BOOTS Akam then throws Rezar into barriers! Joe glares at Rollins and Rollins is ready to fight! And fight they do! Joe jabs and jabs and headbutts! COQUINA CLUTCH! But Rollins is saved by the AOP! Akam and Rezar hammer Joe down but Kevin has a chair! Kevin SMACKS Akam, then Rezar! Rollins is on Kevin and things are 3v2! But here comes security to break things up! Rollins and the AOP are pulled away from Joe and Kevin, but then Kevin and Joe break free! They go after Rollins and the AOP! Rollins retreats as fans chant to “Let Them Fight!” The AOP follow, but Kevin climbs up top! Kevin CANNONBALLS onto them all!!

Kevin gets up and Joe joins him in hammering down AOP! Security keeps trying to restore order, but Raw goes to break!

 

Raw returns as Joe and Kevin talk backstage.

They’re ready to fight anywhere, any time. Charly Caruso comes in to interview them before they’re ejected. Why is Joe getting involved in this situation? Well much like Rollins, Joe didn’t have a chose. Rollins chose for Joe to be involved. Rollins chose not to be safe again. Rollins made a choice that Kevin and Joe are not standing alone! Kevin and Joe have known each other for a long time. Kevin’s known a lot of badasses, but none as bad as Joe. And after everything they’ve both done in this company, Kevin could not have imagined anyone being by his side. But he’s glad it’s Joe. Security is coming, they’re being asked to leave, that seems to happen a lot. But this week, oh hey guys. Well Joe and Kevin did what they wanted to accomplish. Now they have a whole week to plan for next time. Joe makes it simple: anyone lays a finger on him, they lose those fingers. Happy New Year.

Fans rally up and Murphy fights his way up, but Aleister keeps on tight. Murphy gets free but gets a ROUNDHOUSE! Aleister brings Murphy to a corner and throws body shots. The ref backs Aleister up, and Murphy hits back! Aleister knees then snapmares, runs and basement dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Aleister keeps on Murphy with an armlock.

Murphy turns things around but is put on the apron. Murphy jumps the sweep to buckle bump Aleister! Murphy climbs up but gets a KICK!

Fans are fired up as Murphy is out on the top rope! Aleister climbs to join Murphy, prepares a superplex but Murphy fights back. Murphy adjusts, sunset flips but no bomb.

Aleister made sure to leave no doubt! Murphy once again #FadesToBlack, but will Aleister use this win to head for gold?

 

The Authors of Pain are arguing.

Rollins tells Akam and Rezar to calm down. They need to explain things. Akam and Rezar are watching the halls. No one is kicking them out tonight. Rollins says they’re not being kicked out, they were politely asked to leave. Raw wants to end the year without their savior, Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Let them try! The show will be shut down by the end of the next match. SEcurity does come along, “right on cue” as Rollins sees it. They will not be needed, they are leaving voluntarily. Akam and Rezar glare, and they’re left alone as they follow Rollins out.

 

Lana prepares for her big day.

And Erick Rowan congratulates her on the wedding. But Lana has misplaced an invite for him. Or does she not like him? Which is it? Lana is very wary of Rowan and his critter. Rowan says they don’t really care either way. Then he roars before leaving. Will there be any other guests unhappy with tonight’s ceremony?

 

Erick Rowan VS Kip Stevens!

Big Red might be green with envy over Bobby Lashley and Lana having their wedding, but will he be making yet another opponent black and blue tonight?

Kip is frightened as the bell rings, and he immediately gets out of the ring. But Kip sees he’s cornered with Rowan ready to go to either side of the ring. So Kip goes UNDER the ring! Rowan watches the sides, he’s seen this trick before. Rowan sees Kip see the cage, and Kip avoids that, only to get a BOOT! And then throw into barriers! Rowan throws Kip face first into the apron! Rowan refreshes the count and puts Kip in like a sack of potatoes. Fans boo Rowan as he paces around the ring. Rowan makes sure his critter is safe in its cage. Rowan then gets in to corner splash and scoop slam Kip hard! Running SPLASH! Cover, but Rowan lets up at Two! To clamp on the IRON CLAW SLAM! Cover, now Rowan wins.

Winner: Erick Rowan, by pinfall

Rowan fetches his pet and heads to the back. Will Rowan run roughshod over hapless mortal men until his own appetite for destruction is satiated?

 

Lana continues wedding preparations.

Rowan was terrifying, but clearly obsessed with her. Just like everyone is, because duh, she’s Lana. Will the Ravishing Russian have all eyes on her at the end of the night?

 

Charlotte Flair is here!

Hartford lets out a “WOO~!” for the Queen! Charlotte struts to the ring and picks up a mic to return the “WOO~!” Charlotte also says, “Guess what? I am here to announce my entry into the Women’s Royal Rumble match.” A natural move, and an exciting one! The Queen in the Royal Rumble. But she knew she would be, the fans figured she would be, and the world knows she will be. But why come out and state the obvious? Who would want that? She could go on and on about being the 10-time Women’s Champion, that she was part of the WrestleMania 35 main event, and that she is “arguably the greatest of all time!” Or she could talk about the first woman to make her entry this year. That means she is the first woman of the new decade, the 2020’s, to do that! Well, first superstar, really.

But Charlotte is tired about talking about how great she is. Surely the fans are, right? So instead, Charlotte will SHOW us how great she is! She has her favorite robe, her favorite boots, so who wants to face her? Who wants to BOW DOWN?! The woman to answer this open challenge is Natalya! The Queen of Harts takes on the Queen of Flair after the break!

 

Charlotte Flair VS Natalya!

Raw returns as the bell rings. Charlotte and Natty circle and tie up. Natty headlocks and hits the takeover but Charlotte headscissors. natty pops out and both women kip up. Fans cheer as the Queens circle again. They tie up, Natty wristlocks, but Charlotte cartwheels and reverses, to get the headlock takeover. Natty gets her own headscissors but Charlotte pops out!

Cover, ONE, but Natty stays close on Charlotte. Natty throws Charlotte down by her hair and hooks the legs. Charlotte resists but Natty slaps her around.

Charlotte drags Natty up and bumps her off buckles, then off more buckles. Charlotte hooks a leg on the ropes and pulls! The ref counts and Charlotte KICKS the knee! Then drops a knee, but misses!

Natty kicks Charlotte while she’s down! “Did that feel good, Charlotte?” Charlotte throws forearms but Natty gives them back. They brawl, Natty stomps Charlotte in the corner and fires off haymakers! The ref backs her off but she comes back. Charlotte goes up, Natty hits post! Charlotte grabs the legs for a draping Boston Crab! The ref counts but Charlotte lets go at 4. Natty flops out of the ring, and Charlotte takes a moment to catch her breath and soak up the cheers and jeers. The ring count climbs but Charlotte goes out. Wait, is that R-Truth?! The 24/7 Championship chase heads around the ring!

Truth runs from Shelton Benjamin, No Way Jose, Cedric Alexander, Mojo Rawley and Eric Young, going full laps! Eric tries to use the ring as a shortcut, but gets a BOOT from Charlotte! Truth keeps running around the ring and the others keep pursuing, as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns, the 24/7 Championship chase is gone, and Charlotte puts Natty up top. Natty fights back but Charlotte SLAPS her. Charlotte climbs up to join Natty but Natty resists. Natty shoves Charlotte down, then adjusts, to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Charlotte drags Natty up and throws haymakers. Charlotte whips, Natty reverses but Charlotte kicks back! The boot is blocked and Natty GERMAN SUPLEXES Charlotte away! Natty drags Charlotte up for a waistlock but Charlotte elbows out hard. Charlotte scoops for an EXPLODER! Natty ends up in a corner, Charlotte glares as she runs in, but the boot is ducked! Natty picks Charlotte up, for a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Both women are down but fans are fired up. Natty grits her teeth as she brings Charlotte around. Charlotte boots out of the Sharpshooter and rolls Natty, TWO!

The brawl is on again as Natty hammers away on Charlotte. The ref has to pull her away, Charlotte BOOTS the discus down! Then SPEARS Natty down! Cover, TWO!!

Natty pushes out of the Figure Four then drags Charlotte around, but still no Sharpshooter! NATURAL SELECTION! It was low, Charlotte covers, TWO!! Charlotte shakes her head, she refuses to give up. She drags Natty to a new drop zone and heads up top. Charlotte climbs up, MOONSAULT, Natty puts her boots up! But Charlotte catches them to figure four! Natty cradle counters, TWO! BOOT! Then the “WOO~” for the Figure Four! And then the bridge, FIGURE EIGHT! Natty endures, reaches, powers up, but taps! Charlotte wins!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by submission

And the first woman to enter the Royal Rumble is a winner! But will Charlotte win the Rumble to go on to WrestleMania 36?

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch!

The Raw Women’s Champion is here, and she’s still waiting to face Asuka. The challenge was accepted, and Becky chooses the Royal Rumble for their match! The Man VS The Empress for the title! A huge decision, but how was this finally made? Becky’s contract is almost up, so she used Becky VS Asuka as the bartering chip. She’s gambling a lot. She could just accept one of the biggest contracts ever, and be one of the longest reining champs, but she can’t give up that loss to Asuka. Becky could coast, but if this is what being on top is, she doesn’t want it. History demanded a woman be the face of the business, and that has happened. But Becky needs to see if she’s worth it. Being a golden goose means being in golden shackles. Becky vows to wipe that loss from her record, even if it kills her. Is Becky finally ready for Asuka?

 

Bobby Lashley is also preparing for the wedding.

He’s wearing the slacks, the suit jacket, and not much else. Will the Rocky Mountain Machine be ready to live ravishingly ever after?

 

Liv Morgan speaks.

“To be different, you can’t just look different. You have to feel different.” Someone once made Liv feel “different.” And then they took that all away. The old Liv would’ve done something impulsive. The new Liv is “more methodical.” Liv will strike when she’s ready. And she’s almost ready. Are you?

 

The OC head to the ring!

The Phenomenal One and the Best Tag Team in the World throw up the Too Sweet in Hartford! They each take up a mic and AJ Styles says, “If there are any doubters left that still need proof that Raw is the OC’s show, here it is.” Styles of course means the Good Brothers beating the Viking Raiders 2v2, then the OC beating the Viking Raiders and Randy Orton in Six Man Tag action! “Everybody said the Viking Raiders were unbeatable. Even stupid people like you were saying that!” But the OC beat them “time and time again.” One time being at Crown Jewel to officially be recognized as the Best Tag Team in the World! Look at that trophy!

Gallows agrees with “Hot Karl.” When it comes to who is next to challenge the “goofs,” the answer is- The Street Profits! Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford are here and with mics of their own. “Dawkins, is it true that Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson have beaten the unbeatable Viking Raiders more than once?” It is. Is it true that Gallows & Anderson just won the biggest tag team turmoil in history, making them the BEST Tag Team in the WOOOOORLD? Yes, they did. Then what does that mean for the Profits? Because on their debut, they BEAT Gallows & Anderson? Pause! “Fam, don’t get inspired, bruh.” But yeah, they beat they A$$. Then what does that mean for the team that beat the best team in the world? That means the PROFITS are- “Lucky.” Styles says they’re just lucky. They’ve only had a handful of matches. The best thing to do is stick to that shtick backstage, or get hurt.

Dawkins says he’d feel threaten, but this is coming from three men naming themselves after a teen soap opera. Ford sings for California~ but Gallows has had enough. This isn’t High School Musical, this is Raw. Get in the ring so they can fight! Well okay then, fam. The Street Profits are up and #WeWantTheSmoke!

The Street Profits VS The OC w/ AJ Styles!

The bell rings and Dawkins steps to Anderson! They circle, tie up, and Dawkins headlocks. Ford tags in and takes the hand-off to a wrench. Anderson hits back and bumps Ford on buckles. Anderson whips corner to corner, Ford goes up and over and shows off his agility! Ford arm-drags Anderson to an armlock and flicks his tongue at Styles. Ford keeps on Anderson, “Tell me how good I am!” Anderson fights his way up, whips free but Ford reverses to dropkick Anderson down! Cover, TWO! Ford keeps his eyes on Styles as he drags Anderson over. Tag to Dawkins, Dawkins hops up and drops ax handles on Anderson’s arm!

Dawkins headlocks Anderson but Anderson powers out. Dawkins hurdles Anderson then throws Anderson to the ropes to run him over! Ford is fired up abut Styles swipes at Dawkins! The ref keeps Dawkins back and EJECTS Styles! The OC are furious but now things are even! Raw goes to break as the Profits are fired up!

Raw returns again and Anderson grinds Ford down with a chinlock. Ford endures and fights his way up as fans rally. Ford reaches but Anderson kicks and whips him away. Ford BOOTS from the corner, but runs into a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Anderson keeps his cool as he drags Ford up by his ear. Tag to Gallows and the OC mugs Ford. Gallows puts Ford in a corner to throw big body shots! Gallows ROCKS Ford with the uppercut! Gallows drags Ford up, suplexes and drops Ford down. Cover, TWO! Gallows clamps onto Ford and drives elbows in over and over. Gallows wraps on a new chinlock and grinds Ford down. Ford endures as fans rally with “We Want the Smoke!” Ford feeds off that energy to get to his feet and fight with elbows. Gallows shoves and BOOTS Ford down! Cover, TWO!

Gallows drops a leg on Ford, brother! Cover, TWO! Gallows puts the chinlock back on and Anderson talks trash from the corner. Dawkins coaches Ford and fans rally again. Ford fires up again as fans continue to chant “We Want the Smoke!” Ford fights up but Gallows clubs him down. Gallows DECKS Dawkins, but Ford dropkicks Gallows! Both men are down now, but Gallows crawls to his corner. Ford crawls but Dawkins isn’t there. Tag to Anderson, and Anderson back suplexes. Ford slips out, ducks and Dawkins is back! Hot tag tot he Curse of Greatness! Dawkins rallies on the OC, big uppercut for Anderson! Dropkick for Gallows! EXPLODER for Anderson! Dawkins fires up and fans fire up with him! Dawkins cyclone splashes Gallows, then Anderson! BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Dawkins keeps on Anderson but has to ROCK Gallows with a right. Anderson hits a SPINE BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Tag to Gallows and Anderson hits Ford away. Gallows lifts Dawkins, back suplex neckbreaker combo! Cover, TWO! Gallows tags Anderson back in and they drag Dawkins back up. Ford stops Magic Killer but Gallows ROCKS him. Ford comes back with a dropkick! Anderson whips Ford, but Ford dodges to FLY out onto Gallows! Dawkins gives Anderson a SPINE BUSTER! Tag to Ford, Ford climbs up, WORLD STAR SPLASH! Cover, the Profits win!!

Winners: The Street Profits, Ford by pinfall

It’s not a fluke, it’s real! The Profits get another win on the Best Tag Team in the World, the team that beat the Raw Tag Team Champions! Does this mean Ford and Dawkins are headed for those titles in the New Year?

 

It’s official!

The Royal Rumble will have Becky Lynch defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Asuka! A rematch one year in the making, who will be the best when the dust settles?

 

Lana checks the flowers.

They are lovely and smell lovely, too. Will the most ravishing wedding in WWE history be perfect?

 

The Profits celebrate!

“YEEEEEEEAH!” Did you see that? They beat the OC, the Best Tag Team in the WOOORLD, again! Doesn’t that make them the best team in the UNIVERSE? No, bigger than that. Bigger than the universe?! What’s bigger than that?! The MULTIVERSE! Whoa what’s that? A hypothetical group of multiple universes. The theory is that there are parallel worlds and universes with parallel versions of Earth. This is based on theoretical- Nevermind. Isn’t he ready for the wedding? Lana and Lashley! Dawkins don’t care about that. Where them bridesmaids at? But seriously, to the OC AND the Viking Raiders. The Profits have 2020 vision! The most important words in this or any universe: WE WANT THE SMOKE!

 

2v1 Handicap Match: Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins VS Drew McIntyre!

After the Major Bros were each beaten down by the Scottish Terminator, they want to see him do that fair and square against them both! Will McIntyre have the happiest New Year when he drops these two?

McIntyre has a mic as he makes his entrance and he seems to be laughing at Ryder and Hawkins. “Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we have ourselves a two-on-one match.” Hawkins & Ryder VS the #SexyScot, McIntyre. McIntyre leans on the barrier and says he’s supposedly at a disadvantage. But he has a feeling that he shouldn’t worry at all. But he’ll put this theory to the test and take a poll. Hartford, make sure you’re real pretty because you’re going to be on TV. Well maybe not that guy. But who here thinks McIntyre should be worried? A handful. But who thinks Ryder and Hawkins, who got brutalized and slaughtered, should be extremely worried? Everyone else! Well then that’s a landslide right there. The people have spoken, the numbers are in, and just like everyone else that faces McIntyre, “You’re screwed!”

But as McIntyre gets up on the apron, Ryder and Hawkins knock him off it! And take the fight to him! But McIntyre RAMS Ryder into barriers, and trips Hawkins on the apron! McIntyre runs Ryder over then goes after Hawkins int he ring. McIntyre wants this match to being, it does, and he SUPLEXES Hawkins across the ring! Fans fire up as McIntyre aims from the corner. Hawkins stands, a countdown begins… CLAYMORE! But he doesn’t cover, McIntyre gives Ryder a FUTURE SHOCK! And then kips up to show off that uncanny agility. He stacks the Major Bros and covers, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

The Scottish Stud has the ref raise his hand, and he is on a roll! Surely McIntyre is a shoe-in for the Men’s Royal Rumble. Will he run roughshod all over it and carve a path to WrestleMania 36?

 

The first Raw of 2020 will be MASSIVE!

Oklahoma City becomes Suplex City as The Beast, BROCK LESNAR, returns! There will also be a WWE United States Championship rematch between El Idolo and Rey Mysterio! AND there will be a Triple Threat for the Raw Tag Team Championships! The Viking Raiders take on both the OC and the Street Profits to truly prove who is the best tag team on Raw!

 

Randy Orton is here!

However, he isn’t doing so well after a knee injury suffered during a show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, just last night on December 29th. He walks out with crutches and makes his way down to the ring so that he may address what happened. However, he does need some help getting in because of the injured leg. Orton stands and fans cheer in support of him toughing it out to be here tonight. Orton has a mic as fans chant his name. “There’s a saying in this business, ‘It ain’t that leg.'” Accidents, injuries, they happen all the time. Everyone in the locker room knows of the fact that anything can happen. “It kills me that I needed help to get into the ring tonight in front of you.” Fans continue to cheer their support as Orton tries to find the words.

Orton says that he’s seen champions that have surrendered titles because of injuries. He doesn’t respect many people, but he does respect Edge. Edge had to surrender an entire career because of injury. No one wants to see that happen to anyone. Orton doesn’t want to ramble, but long story short, he landed funny, something popped, knew it was bad but didn’t know how bad until this morning’s evaluations. Fans again cheer their support as Orton says that he’ll be out a long time. The part that hurts the most is that he might not be able to come back. Fans boo and chant “NO! NO!”, they don’t want him to think that way. But Orton says he will do whatever he has to for someone to get RKO’d at Mania. That is his promise to the fans.

But here comes AJ Styles! The Phenomenal One wants a timeout. “You mean to tell me that the next time I get to fight you in that ring is WrestleMania?” Maybe. Is that what’s going on? Styles gets in the ring with Orton and Orton says this isn’t the time. Styles says this IS the time. Is Orton mad? Of course he’s mad. But what is Orton going to do? Is he going to strike? Orton keeps his cool as Styles taunts him. Styles says this is the time to do something he hasn’t done since he was five. “I’m not touching you! I’m not touching you!” Oh, he did touch him. How bad is that knee? Orton warns Styles not to push him but Styles says Orton’s gonna stand there and take it. Styles knows ORton was never the helpless kid being picked on at school, but he is now. “Isn’t it funny how fate bit Randy Orton before Orton could bite fate?”

Styles says he’s not done, but he wants to do Orton a favor. He’ll give fans what they want. Styles says he’ll put his arms behind his back and let The Viper strike. That’s what fans want, isn’t it? Styles puts one arm back, then the other. And he offers up his neck for the RKO. “C’mon! C’mon, Randy!” Styles even closes his eyes so he won’t see it coming. But Orton doesn’t move, so Styles grins. Orton must really be hurt, huh? Well good thing, because Styles is a patient man. Styles will wait until Mania to finally put that leg in a Calf Crusher and not just make Orton tap, but retire. See you then. Oh and another thing. Styles kicks one of the crutches out! Fans boo but Styles grins.

Fans chant “AJ Sucks!” but Orton tells Styles, there’s a big difference between these two. That difference is that styles is patient, and Orton isn’t. A ONE LEGGED RKO! Because the leg WASN’T that bad after all! The Viper is a snake, but he’s also a genius! It seems things won’t have to wait until WrestleMania, but will Orton regret it in the New Year?

 

WWE shares footage from Thursday’s Madison Square Garden event.

Rey Mysterio lost to Andrade Almas, and now Almas is the NEW WWE United States Champion. Afterward, Mysterio admitted that Almas was the better man. But Mysterio is looking forward to the rematch. As for Seth Rollins and the AOP, no one should count Mysterio out on going after them, either. Mysterio wants Rollins to know that while he didn’t start this, he promises to END it, and standing tall over them. #BOOYAKA619.

 

Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega VS ???

El Idolo is El Campeon but needs to prepare for his rematch with Rey Mysterio in the New Year. Will he get a proper warm-up from his opponent tonight?

Raw returns and Almas’ opponent gets a BOOT at the bell! Almas knees and whips then clotheslines the man down! Almas is fired up as he drags his opponent up to whip corner to corner. The opponent elbows back then runs, into a dropkick! Almas glares as he stops his opponent down in a corner. Almas drags his opponent into the corner for more stomps! Vega applauds and Almas fires up. Almas runs corner to corner, CIEN SHADOWS! But Almas doesn’t even try to cover. He drags his opponent up, reels him in and hammerlocks, but Vega wants to add on. Almas throws his opponent out of the ring and Vega pulls up floor mats! The ref reprimands Almas but Almas drags his opponent over to the bare concrete. Almas CHOPS the man then brings him over, but here comes Ricochet!

Ricochet runs and Almas gets back in the ring. Ricochet won’t let this Hartford wrestler suffer the same fate as Humberto Carrillo. Ricochet hops into the ring and tells Almas, “No, no, no!” This isn’t going to go down like that. Almas did that to Carrillo, and then did it to Rey Mysterio! If Almas wants a fight, then fight Ricochet! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” but Almas looks reluctant. Raw goes to break as things sort out.

 

Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega VS Ricochet!

Raw returns and this match is happening! Will El Idolo get more than he bargained for against the One and Only?

Ricochet throws hands and CHOPS Almas. He whips but Almas reverses, only for Ricochet to roll off the back and trip Almas up. Ricochet slingshots to knee-board senton! Cover, ONE! Ricochet keeps cool as he brings Almas up and into a corner for another CHOP! Ricochet whips corner to corner and then runs in, but Almas puts him on the apron. Ricochet shoulders in but Vega distracts. Almas runs in but Ricochet punches him away. Ricochet springboards, into a dropkick! Almas is on Ricochet in the corner with stomps! The ref counts but Almas lets up at 4, all fired up. Almas and Vega still want to have that bare spot so she again pulls up floor mats. Almas CHOPS Ricochet and then whips him to ropes. Almas runs Ricochet over with an elbow, then stomps him down.

Almas rains down rights and Vega applauds, but fans boo and jeer. Almas grins as he drags Ricochet up and underhooks. Ricochet endures the butterfly stretch, powers his arm free and rolls Almas, TWO! Almas kicks Ricochet down, then praises himself. Almas drags Ricochet up, shimmies the shoulders and suplexes. Ricochet slips out, huricanranas and Almas bails out! Ricochet builds speed to FLY! Fosbury Flop wipes both men out into the barriers! Vega shouts at Almas to get up but it’s Ricochet who stands first! Ricochet puts Almas in and follows, aiming from the apron. Almas rolls out the other end, but Ricochet comes around the corner. Almas rams Ricochet into barriers! Almas refreshes the count and then ram Ricochet into the LED apron!

Almas drags Ricochet to the exposed floor, but Ricochet pops out to ROCK Almas! Ricochet runs at Almas but gets BACK DROPPED onto the concrete! The referee checks but Ricochet refuses to quit here, so Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Almas grinds Ricochet down with a chinlock. Ricochet fights his way up but slowly. Ricochet elbows free but Almas knees low and CHOPS Ricochet back. Almas runs but into the dropkick-flip and enziguri! Ricochet fires up, runs and rallies with forearms! Fireman’s carry but Almas slips out. Almas shoves but Ricochet boots, somersaults and shotgun dropkicks! Fans fire up with Ricochet as he hits the standing shooting star! Cover, TWO! Ricochet and Almas are down, but Ricochet rises first. Ricochet drags Almas away but Vega grabs Almas’ hands. Ricochet stomps Almas’ arms to get him away from Vega. Ricochet wristlocks but Almas slips out of the ripcord. Almas CHOPS, Ricochet CHOPS and rolling elbows! Ricochet runs into an ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Vega is shocked and Almas is furious but Ricochet survives!

Almas says he is the champion, he is the best! He drags Ricochet up, hammerlocks but Ricochet avoids the leg trip to cradle counter! TWO, and Ricochet ducks the elbow to SUPERKICK! Ricochet suplexes for the Anarchy! Ricochet aims from up top but Vega shoves him down! The ref didn’t see it, Almas hammerlocks, LA SOMBRA! Cover, Almas wins!

Winner: Andrade Almas, by pinfall

La Muneca again helps El Idolo get away with a victory yet again! But if this is what Almas needs to win, will it work against Rey Mysterio?

 

Lana takes pre-wedding pictures.

She of course loves all the attention, and now it’s time for the ceremony itself. Will things go as according to plan to end the year?

 

Backstage interview with Andrade and Zelina.

Given his title defense next week with Rey Mysterio, how confident is he in this rematch? Vega speaks, saying everyone wanted a piece of the new champion already. Ricochet did, and look what happened to him. Humberto Carrillo tried and ended up eating concrete. If Mysterio wants another piece, then he’ll get it when El Idolo beats him again. Almas always said he was the future, and now he is the present. Will Almas keep that championship when he and Mysterio go around one more time?

 

The Most Ravishing Wedding is about to begin!

The flowers, the altar, and a massive cake are in the ring as the presiding priest introduces the groom, Bobby Lashley! Lashley enters but it seems no superstars decided to come, as the seats on stage are empty. Lashley enters the ring and flexes, but fans boo. Now, welcome the Ravishing Bride, Lana! Lana walks out but not to the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” music. Lana takes a moment to let everyone see her as she walks down the ramp, no one to give her away. Lashley helps Lana into the ring, and the couple-to-be stand ready as Raw goes to one last break.

Raw returns once more and the proceedings continue. “We are gathered here on this blessed day,” as Bobby Lashley and Lana are to be wed in holy matrimony. A cause of great celebration, “for married life is a shared life, and a shared life is a life filled with many great blessings.” The priest feels he speaks for everyone when he says that hopefully Lashley and Lana will grow to be better people through this marriage. Fans boo because they don’t wish for that. Hopefully the two of them bless their household with “the pitter-patter of little feet.” Lana doesn’t remember putting that in the speech. She doesn’t want children, at all. She’ll just get fat, have stretch marks, and end up like these wannabe women. These women will NEVER compare to her! Only read what she put in there! Lashley also assures the priest to continue.

The speech continues that marriage is a sacred agreement that must be coveted by both parties. The fans chant for Rusev but Lana shouts them down. “It has been said that when man and woman were originally created, one being was split in two, and we spend our lives searching for our other half.” Lashley, Lana, you two have found that other half and we are all so very happy for you both. Not Hartford. Lashley and Lana have chosen to write their own vows, so it is with those vows that they express their binding promises to love, honor and cherish each other. If they are ready, please face each other and- Lana tells the Rusev fans to shut up! Lashley calms Lana down and she takes her turn with the vows. Lana says this is HER day, it’s all about her! It’s L-A-N-A, Lana Day!

Fans boo but she tells “her Bobby” that this is the luckiest day of his entire life. He is marrying the greatest superstar of all time, and joining her in holy matrimony. No woman will ever compare to Lana. Lana is sorry everyone else is so pathetic but it’s true. Lashley has worked so hard his entire life to be the best at everything. The greatest gift he could ever give himself is Lana. Fans are getting louder with the Rusev Day chants and Lana counters with “Lana Day! Lana Day!” This is HER day. And to finish her vows, the decade is ending, just 25 hours away from the greatest new decade. Lashley has worked his whole life to lead him to the greatest moment in his life right here, marrying her. And she just wants to get through this to make love to him! She jumps right on him to give him a kiss, but a bit out of turn.

Lashley takes his turn with his vows. Lana is so proud of him. It took her forever to write the vows for him, so thank you for reading them. Lashley takes out his notes and reads, “Lana, I really am the luckiest man on the face of this entire planet. Not only because I’m going to marry the most successful female superstar in the history of WWE, but I’m being joined in holy matrimony to a woman that no other woman could compare to.” Lashley has spent- Fans go “WHAT?” and Lana says they should be asking “WHO?” And the answer is LANA! Lashley has spent his entire life to be the best, and Lana is the greatest gift he could ever give himself. The final Raw of the decade, 25 hours away from 2020, and his life has culminated in this: marrying her. Wait these sound just like what Lana said. “Thank you for allowing me to marry you.”

Time to present the rings. The rings that they will place on each other’s fingers as symbols of their love. They will be reminders of the vows they spoke and the love they have for each other. Lashley has his ring and takes her hand. “Lana, with this ring, I thee wed.” As this ring encircles your finger, from this moment forward, Lashley’s love will forever encircle her. Lashley promises to love, cherish and accept her just the way she is. For better or for worse, in sickness or in health- Okay, okay, it’s the usual. Lana wants to skip ahead. Lana’s turn with the ring and she goes on her own version of the vow. Everything is about her and her Bobby. Okay hold on. If there is anyone who has reason why these two should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace.

“Stop it! Stop it right now!” Who is this man? And why is he objecting? He objects to this “charade” and “sham,” this wedding should not be allowed to continue! This man is LANA’S FIRST HUSBAND! What?! As in, even before Rusev?! Lana married him the day she turned 18! And then she left him for RUSEV. Lana tells this man to get out of here for being obsessed. But this guy feels bad that Rusev got left for Lashley! And Lana will just do it again when someone bigger and better comes along. It’s what Lana does. Lashley won’t stand to hear this, he CHOKE SLAMS the man out of the ring! The priest calms down and continues with the ceremony. If there is anyone who has reason why these to should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace. Hallelujah, no one says anything- Nevermind.

A woman storms out and shouts objection! Lashley seems to know who this is. She’s Lashley’s FIRST WIFE. Lana is upset that she only now just met this person. The former Mrs. Lashley says they met while he was in the military. It was a beautiful relationship, but then Lana DECKS her! Well, uh, third time’s the charm? If there is anyone who has reason why these two should not be wed, speak now or forever hold your peace. Nothing? Wait! Another woman objects. Is that… LIV MORGAN!? She apologizes but she can’t let this continue. The love of her life is right there in the ring. If it wasn’t for their love, she couldn’t have made it through the year. She was a wild child hoping her dream would come true. Liv never knew that she could be herself and fell in love with… How could you do this to Liv?

Lashley has never touched Liv ONCE! Well no, sorry, it wasn’t Lashley. Liv meant LANA! DRAMA BOMB! Lana is in tears as Liv begs her. Lana SLAPS and attacks Liv! She throws flowers on her and now it’s a cat fight! Lashley isn’t sure what to do with this, but referees hurry to separate them. Security come out to help, and finally Lashley helps pull Lana away from Liv. Liv shrieks, vowing revenge, but Lana says this is going to END. Man and woman, by the power vested in this man- the CAKE OPENS!! Rusev tackles Lashley!! And then throws him into the posts! And into the altar! “Hello, wife!” Rusev grins at Lana before dragging Lashley up for more haymakers! And a LARIAT! Rusev rains down rights and then smashes flower pots on Lashley!

Lana is freaking out, so she jumps on Rusev. Rusev shakes her off to MACHKA KICK Lashley! Liv returns to SMASH Lana into the cake!! Rusev and Liv stand tall over the toxic Lashley and Lana, but Lana throws cake back at Rusev! So Liv throws her back into the cake! So much for a New Year’s Wedding! Will 2020 only get crazier from here?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Well, I’ll say this: this Raw will be one to remember from this year and even decade. Everything before the wedding was great, but the wedding itself was about as cringe worthy as everything else in this Rusev-Lana-Lashley story. Anyone who made a “Worst of” list, you might need to reconsider it now that this has happened. Lana making Lashley’s vows a copy-n-paste of hers was really bad. While it makes sense that Lana would want it to be all about her, she could at least come up with something different for him to say that praises her. Also I’m a little disappointed in the Lashley character that he’s being led around by her. He should be upset that she’s belittling everything else he’s done in his life to say that marrying her is the best thing. But oh well, it seems Lashley is really hooked on the Ravishing Russian like a drug.

The “Jerry! Jerry!” dysfunction was so bad it was hilarious, and then Liv’s surprise debut is really… something. Liv’s promo from tonight mentioned about striking at the opportune time, but I don’t want to presume anything. Was Liv just saying that stuff to get revenge at Lana? Or is this really how WWE (i.e. Vince) is going to do an LGBT storyline? I feel like going with mind-games would keep progressive fans from being upset from having to wade through a layer of cringe. Though one way or another, this shows us that the blow-off will be a mixed tag match, probably at the Royal Rumble.

The Rollins story is going good places. Rollins continues to see himself as the hero, which makes for a good villain. Obviously Samoa Joe helps Kevin Owens fight Rollins & The AOP, but as Mysterio says in his promo, don’t count him out of this story. The Six Man Tag we’ll likely see before the Royal Rumble will be Rollins & The AOP VS Joe, Kevin and Mysterio. I’m betting Rollins & The AOP win by cheating but retribution comes at the Rumble itself. Next week’s episode will be amazing, too, with Lesnar being around to start a Rumble story, Mysterio VS Almas, and then a Triple Threat for the Raw Tag titles. Profits VS Good Brothers was great, and it was amazing to see Profits win. They also had a hilarious “multiverse” promo. But in a Triple Threat, I don’t see the Profits winning the titles. It either stays with the Viking Raiders or goes to The OC.

Aleister VS Murphy was AMAZING, not enough can be said about it. Rowan wrecks another jobber but meh. His confronting Lana was way more interesting. Charlotte’s open challenge to face Natalya was a great match. Not sure why this was when the 24/7 Championship showed up, and I’m disappointed Natalya and Charlotte didn’t end up part of it just by accident. Truth could’ve tripped on Natty and Natty pins him to win, and then Charlotte wins it off Natty to then give it back to Truth. That aside, Charlotte is certainly the favorite to win the Women’s Rumble, but who knows if she’ll actually win now. Becky VS Asuka is made official, that match will be amazing. I even like that Becky threw in kayfabe contract talk to give good motivation from the administration side of things. There’s still a strong chance Becky wins to solidify her reign as champion, but as I said before, WWE needs to build up the rest of the roster to give her more worthy challengers.

McIntyre is really good. He dominates Ryder and Hawkins again and just does great on the mic. Why can’t he face Lesnar and take that title at Rumble? Orton’s “injury” from Hershey was sold really well, I almost started to think it was legit. But then Orton uses that to sucker Styles in for an RKO and it was actually pretty brilliant. I’m not entirely sure how this wraps up. Mania was mentioned but I don’t know if this can be stretched out that long. Almas VS Ricochet was set up rather well with Almas wanting to destroy a jobber, and the match itself was great. Naturally, Almas wins and with Vega’s help, and as I said, Almas VS Mysterio is going to be great. With the wedding being the last segment, Almas and Ricochet can at least say they were the last main event match of Raw in 2019 and the decade. Almas will surely hold onto the title even against Mysterio, so that will be a great honor and will help him have a great 2020 to start.

My Score: 8/10

NXT has a new look!

The logo changed first but now so have the graphics! And not only that, but Wade Barrett has TWO new commentary comrades in Byron Saxton and the new kid on the block, Suou Shah! They’re excited to be here because NXT is the place to be. They’re all ready to go, so what’s up first?

 

Pretty Deadly heads to the ring!

They’re dressed in their parliamentary best. They’ve got the powdered wigs, the make-up, the spotted capes and leather boots. They bow to the crowd and then to each other before going to the podium. They clack their gavels and bring the fans to order. Kit Wilson brings into session the Address of the NXT Commonwealth. Members present: Lord Elton Prince, OBE; and Viscount Kit Wilson. They are YOUR NXT Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly. Order! Order! First order: Do they look delicious? Like the two tastiest snack sin NXT! Nay, the whole WWE! And it is time for Ye Olde SIDE PLATE CHECK~! Look at those bad boys.

Now, to depressing matters. Once upon a time, brave pilgrims left the UK to the US and proceeded to make this a better place. Fast forward a few centuries and Pretty Deadly does the same thing to make NXT drastically better. Look at it now! They are the top of the tag team division as TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions! They rule over the fans with complete impunity. However! Order! There is the issue growing beneath them. They must search for new contenders! Wherefore art thou? Competent challengers! Seasoned veterans! Optimistic teams! Up-and-comers! All training in the PC, wanting a piece of PD.

Teams are hoping to be just as “effervescent” as the champions, but there is a problem. Pretty Deadly’s beaten EVERYONE~! Briggs & Jensen beat Gallus but Pretty Deadly has their numbers: 1-800-UGLY DENIM! Edris & Malik: One can’t keep a shirt on while the other needs to take his off. OHOHOHO! Yes, yes. Sweater vest and oil abs aren’t good enough. And don’t get them started on those “boring brothers.” You mean the Creeds? Yes! The Crrrrreeds! Damon Kemp might be closing the Diamond Mine Dojo forever. What about The Dyad? No, ew, skip them, they creep Kit out.

But that means there is no choice. Has it come to this? Yes. Order! Order! Elton Prince decrees that your TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly, rulers of their domain with naught but a challenger in sight be awarded the titles forever and ever~! #YESBOY- WAIT! WHAT?! The Brawling Brutes are here from SmackDown! Fans fire up as Ridge Holland shouts, “Surprise, surprise, fellas! You two sounded pretty tough on social media talking about what happened to Sheamus this past Friday night SmackDown. So me and the Bruiser, we’re here tonight to see how tough you really are face-to-face.”

Dunne asks if there are any objections to kicking these two Muppets’ heads in! Fans shout “NO!” but Pretty Deadly panics! They were hacked! That was Kevin Nash! Kevin Patrick! Kevin Owens! Curse him! OH SHUT UP! Dunne & Ridge get in the ring but Ridge stops Dunne from tearing into Kit & Elton. Ridge says the champs sure like dressing up and prancing around like a couple of peacocks. But all they do is talk and talk about how great they are. All Ridge 7 Dunne ask is that they prove it. Because tonight, it’s Tuesday. That means it’s… FIGHT NIGHT! And then the brawl is on! Dunne DECKS Elton, Ridged CLUBS Kit and they both snatch the capes away!

Fans are thunderous for the Bruiserweight and the yoked Yorkshire, but we’ll have to wait as Carmelo Hayes makes his way out for his match. Will Melo remind everyone why he’s The A Champion?

 

Toxic Attraction arrives.

And they get attacked by Alba Fyre! She hits Jacy and Gigi then abducts Mandy! What’s going to happen to tonight’s Six Woman Tag? Well the math is simple: cut it down to 2v2, and make it a #1 contender’s match! Who will win here to head for Kayden Carter & Katana Chance at Halloween Havoc?

 

Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Oro Mensah!

The former NXT North American Champion wants that belt back but must go through a ladder match to do it. The Hottest Superstar Under the Sun has held NXT UK Tag Team Championship gold but never truly lost it. Who will have pole position going into the title race? And who will hit a major speed bump?

NXT returns as Oro makes his entrance. The bell rings and Melo circles with Oro. Fans rally, Melo shoves Oro, and then shoves him again. Melo says Oro ain’t ready, but Oro grabs the arm! Oro wrenches, wristlocks and grinds but Melo spins to wrench back. Oro rolls, headstands and kicks back. Oro then arm-drags Melo down to have an armlock. Fans rally while Melo fights up. Melo pulls hair, whips but Oro reverses. Melo stops himself, blocks a boot, but Oro tiger wall kicks him! Oro says he is championship material, then he arm-drags again. Melo fights up, knees low, and he throws Oro down by his hair. But Oro kips up!

Oro dropkicks but Melo blocks it. Melo dribbles, but Oro gets up to DROPKICK! That one hits and fans fire up. Oro runs, RANAS Melo, and then catches Melo for an EXPLODER! Cover, ONE!! Fans rally up, Oro aims from the corner and runs in, but Melo bails out. Oro stops, slingshots and PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Melo! Fans fire up and Oro puts Melo in. Oro warns Trick and so does the ref. But Melo kicks Oro at the corner, then POSTS him! Oro staggers back, into a SLINGSHOT DDT TO THE APRON! Fans fire up and Melo high-fives with Trick. Melo puts Oro in, covers, TWO! Fans rally and duel while Melo grows annoyed.

Melo drags Oro up, whips him to ropes, but Oro ducks and comes back, into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Oro sputters, Melo fires himself up, and Melo drags Oro up. Oro throws body shots but Melo CHOPS! Melo drags Oro up, cravats and snapmare rolls, but Oro blocks the superkick to roll up! TWO!! Melo escapes to SUPERKICK! Oro sits up in a daze but he grabs Melo’s arm. Melo breaks free, springboards and CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up as Melo covers, TWO! Oro shows toughness and Trick is furious! Melo CLUBS away on Oro, then twists Oro’s head in the neck wrench. Fans rally, Oro throws elbows but Melo smothers him.

Melo drags Oro up in a cravat, and then he runs for a corner. Oro turns that around to RAM Melo into buckles! Both men are down and Trick is worried. Fans rally, Oro staggers away but he blocks a punch to give a punch! And another! And again, and again! Oro whips and back drops Melo high and hard! Melo gets up, Oro rallies with big forearms! Melo swings but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Oro kips up, fans fire up and Oro boots, but Melo blocks! Melo flips Oro but Oro AX KICKS out of it! Then he LIONSAULTS! Fans fire up with Oro more and he aims from a corner. Oro runs in at Melo, but Trick takes the WHEEL KICK for Melo!

Melo CODE BREAKERS Oro down! Melo hurries up top, shoots THE THREE POINTER! Cover, Melo wins!

Winner: Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall

Give Trick the assist, he helps Melo shoot and score again! Will Melo need Trick’s help again when the title is hanging high above the ring?

Carmelo gets on commentary to speak to everyone watching and in the audience. “They tried to say I was on a losing streak. Losing streak where?” While Trick gets helped out, Melo wants to watch who qualifies for his ladder match. And speaking of, here comes Professor Chase! Is it time for another TEACHABLE MOMENT?

 

Diamond Mine is with the medical trainer.

The trainer asks how Brutus Creed’s shoulder feels, and Brutus angrily shouts, “I’M FINE!” Ivy Nile & Julius tell him to chill. The trainer has to check Brutus in order to clear him. But the trainer says there is no way he can clear Brutus for competition. This is serious damage. But then Duke Hudson swaggers in, asking “Who’s crying this week?” Julius says he doesn’t have the patience for this. Duke, go away. Duke says he’s just here to see what TEN chairshots to the back looks like. Julius tells Duke to get walking or Julius will start stepping. And Julius won’t stop at ten chairshots with Duke. Oh, the older brother sticking up for the dumb one. Er, young one. Cute.

But if Julius comes at Duke while Diamond Mine is hurt, it’ll be Julius’ funeral. Oh, is that so? Yeah, Roddy’s still in the hospital, out of commission. Well Julius isn’t. If Duke thinks they’re vulnerable, let’s find out tonight. Duke will consider it. The doc should stay here, they’re both gonna need medical attention tonight. Ivy keeps Brutus back and Julius says she should stay here to keep an eye on Brutus. Brutus needs to chill, but will Julius turn up the heat on Hudson?

 

NXT North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward & Thea Hail VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

Professor Chase may not have beaten Von Wagner before, but that was before and this is now! Will that golden ticket be motivation enough for the brains to beat the brawn? Or is this still Wagner’s World, and Chase U is just living in it?

NXT returns and Wagner makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Wagner knees low, but Chase throws hands. Wagner DECKS Chase, Chase gets up and runs at Wagner, but Wagner picks him up to RAM him into a corner! Wagner RAMS in again and again, then throws elbows. Wagner stands Chase up, smothers him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Chase dodges Wagner, blocks a boot and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Chase KICKS away on Wagner’s leg then CHOP BLOCKS it! Chase grabs the leg, Wagner pushes him away and LARIATS on the return! Fans boo but Wagner shakes out his leg.

Wagner storms up on Chase, SLAMS him off the mat then stomps away. Melo likes what he sees because he doesn’t like Chase after last week’s upset. Wagner digs his boot into Chase but the ref counts. Wagner lets off, he soaks up the heat while fans rally for Chase U. Chase blocks a boot to DRAGON SCREW! And then Chase YANKS the bad leg, drags Wagner up, but Wagner POWERSLAMS Chase for it! Chase goes to a corner, Wagner storms up and stomps Chase down. Wagner stands Chase up to whip him corner to corner, then he run sin, only to get buckles! Chase dropkicks the legs out! Chase runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and dropkicks the legs out!

Fans fire up as Chase JABS away on Wagner! Chase ROCKS Wagner, whips, but Wagner reverses, only for Chase to reverse back into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans spell out “CHASE U!” as Chase stomps away! But Stone gets on the apron! Chase chases him off, and THEA Electric Chair Lifts Stone! Stone fights free, but Bodhi is there! Stone snatches the banner and throws it down, only for Thea to scoop and SLAM Stone! Fans fire up and Chase is proud of his student, but Wagner CLUBS Chase from behind! Wagner back suplexes but Chase slips off! Chase body scissors and rolls Wagner, TWO!! Wagner escapes, and he BOOTS Chase down!

Wagner is furious, and he drags Chase up to the fireman’s carry! DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER! Cover, Wagner wins!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall (advances to Halloween Havoc)

Melo mocks Chase’s loss as a “teachable moment,” but now a big, BIG man is in the match! Will Wagner finally back up his words and make NXT his world?

Melo talks trash more, saying it doesn’t matter if it’s Oro, Wagner, or “that doofus,” Wes Lee- WES LEE FLIES IN OUTTA NOWHERE! Wes CLOBBERS Melo off commentary, fires off on him around the way, but the refs hurry to stop this! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but this will have to wait until Halloween Havoc!

 

Sanga and Nathan Frazer watch this all backstage.

The Gentleman Giant says he should’ve been in one of those qualifiers, but he lost against Von, too. And now Von beat Chase and is going on to Halloween Havoc. Frazer hears that. When he dropped the first fall to Axiom in their series, he was down. He has to win two matches in a row, and trust him, he was in his head about that. But Frazer blocked all the negativity out and he’s made it 1-1. Next week, Frazer has his chance in the tiebreaker. Sanga says if he can’t win it, then he hopes Frazer does. Well, cheers, mate! Thanks! Frazer heads out, and VEER walks in!! Sanga’s old friend is back, does that mean Indus Sher is back, too?

 

Lash Legend walks and talks to gorilla.

“Wendy Choo, I talk a lotta mess, but I walk it like I talk it like I drop it. Case in point: I dropped your ass. And I’m gonna do it again! Boot to face two, boo! Because when Lash comes around, it’s about to go down. Okay?” The Legend is ready to dunk on Wendy, but will she straight brick when taking on the Queen of Comfy?

 

Someone is handing out Schism’s happy face buttons.

It’s the same mysterious figure in the red hoodie. NXT audience members are a bit torn on accepting the free gifts, but Grayson Waller drives up in his yellow H2. Waller has security on hand and tells them they have one job: Make sure no visions of Apollo Crews’ come true. Crews is a coward, understand? Someone park the car. Waller brings the rest along to the arena, but will he not see Apollo Crews coming?

 

Wendy Choo VS Lash Legend!

Wendy’s shut up one big ego already in Tiffany Stratton in the Lights Out match, because she can bring out her dark side. Will she have to do the same thing again against Lash? Or will Lash’s legend grow at Wendy’s expense?

Lash snatches Wendy’s body pillow and BOPS her with it! The ref reprimands, Wendy is furious, and the bell rings. Wendy ducks Lash to fire off hands! Lash shoves her down but Wendy come back with more! Lash knees low, whips Wendy but Wendy reverses to CHOP! Wendy whips but Lash reverses, only for Wendy to DROPKICK her! Lash goes to a corner, Wendy runs in to BOOT her down! Lash bails out but Wendy goes to the apron to CROSSBODY! But Lash catches her with ease, and hits a SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Lash talks trash, brings Wendy up as the ring count passes 5 of 10, and she puts Wendy in at 7.

Lash stalks Wendy to a corner, drags her up and CLUBS her down! Lash talks more trash but fans rally for Wendy. Lash puts Wendy through ropes and CHOKES her while talking more smack. The ref counts, Lash lets off to then KICK Wendy down. Cover, TWO! Lash is annoyed but she drags Wendy up. Fans rally for Wendy but Lash runs to do her make-up and LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Lash is even more annoyed but she stalks Wendy to a corner. Lash brings Wendy out, whips her into a corner and Wendy hits buckles hard! Lash stands Wendy back up to whip her back in. But Wendy BOOTS back! Lash throws Wendy down by her hair!

Fans obo, but Wendy avoids the elbow drop! Wendy hurries to ROCK Lash, then KICK a leg. And KICKS again! Wendy sweeps the legs, then SHOTGUNS Lash down! Lash crawls to a corner, Wendy runs in to handspring back elbow! Wendy goes up, BOOTS Lash out, and then leaps, but into Lash’s arms again! Lash swings but Wendy rolls to a cover, TWO!! Fans rally as Wendy goes to a corner. Lash runs in, Wendy dodges the boot and KICKS the other leg! Wendy goes up for a VADER BOMB! Cover, WENDY WINS!

Winner: Wendy Choo, by pinfall

And a big win for Wendy! Lash gets humbled, but will she stay humbled? Or is this just the beginning of another grudge for Wendy to deal with?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

Kelly Kincaid, another new addition to NXT, asks him about going after Melo. Was that a message he was sending back to the former champion? Wes says that wasn’t a message. That was a receipt. Melo smashed Wes’s head in locker. Melo tried to crush Wes’s head and end his career! Wes keeps calm and says he’s focused on the ladder match. Wes is going to go all out to get the title, but he’d be lying if he said he didn’t want to get his hands on Melo- and just- Channing Lorenzo walks in and says this is the real Wes Lee. That is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Wes acts all sad and introspective with that lost boy look, going all, “My friends are gone…!”

But Stacks knows Wes is ruthless. Wes hit Tony D’Angelo’s leg so hard, The Don’s PCL is going one way while the rest of him is going that way. Wes defends that he didn’t wanna win that way. Sure, sure. But The Don knows how to make things look like an accident. Actions have consequences, Wes. Stacks leaves, will Wes have to watch his back from now until Halloween Havoc?

 

Gallus speak, though on suspension.

They assaulted referees and security, and now they’re suspended. They didn’t realize how soft everyone here in NXT was. But they’ll stay out of the ring until the suspension is lifted. So don’t worry, lads. They’ll be back soon enough. Briggs & Jensen, that scrap doesn’t prove anything. And Pretty Deadly, hold onto those titles tightly. And Bron Breakker, you watch yourself. When Gallus returns, they won’t just come back for tag gold. Soon, it will be Gallus Boys On Top!

 

Kayden Carter & Katana Chance speak.

A quote on screen reads, “Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” It’s crazy that they’re even here! They shouldn’t even be besties! Look at Kayden and then look at Katana. Katana’s the “Goody two shoes.” Wow, really? Well, isn’t she? Katana’s nice to everyone and always tries to help out. Well Kayden can be nice sometimes. But the thing is, they’ve also had different paths here. Kayden’s known since she was a kid that she wants to be in the WWE. For Katana, her first love was gymnastics. She used that to win on American Ninja Warrior, and then she had a WWE tryout and fell in love.

It was a rough adjustment as the new girl. Katana had to earn respect, and a couple years back, she needed to step away. Kayden remembers that, and she holds hands with Katana. See? Kayden IS nice. Oh, stop it. But it was tough on Katana and she wasn’t sure where she belonged. Kayden was worried if Katana was ever going to come back. But Kayden being there for Katana helped in making that decision, and they both knew they had the same goal. They wanted to be champions together, and look at them now! They didn’t come together just for the gold, but because they wanted the best for each other.

Toxic Attraction thinks these titles are “on loan” to KC Squared. But no, the titles are where they belong, and Gigi & Jacy are crazy if they think they’re ever getting the titles back. KC Squared will never let go. As for Lyons & Stark, those two are great singles competitors, but as a team, they’re a question mark. KC Squared will be watching, ready for whoever comes out on top.

 

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders match: Toxic Attraction VS Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark!

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are surely worried what Alba Fire is doing to their Toxic Goddess, Mandy Rose, but they have to focus on getting themselves a second chance at gold of their own. Will they be able to finally have that rematch with KC Squared? Or will the Pride & the Fighter prove they are a dynamic duo to be reckoned with?

NXT returns and Lyons makes her entrance, followed by Stark. The teams sort out and Lyons starts against Gigi. They circle, tie up, and Lyons gets around to a waistlock. Gigi throws an elbow, snapmares Lyons, then KICKS! But Lyons blocks! Lyons stands, she pins Gigi around and backhands her! Gigi gets away and tags in Jacy. Jacy and Lyons tie up, Lyons gets an arm and she wrenches. Jacy gets away as Stark tags in. Fans rally for Zoey but Jacy tells them to shut up. The two tie up, Stark shoves Jacy away and dares Jacy to come back. Jacy runs in, they tie up again and Jacy puts Zoey in a corner.

The ref counts, Stark shoves Jacy back. Stark then rolls Jacy up, TWO! Jacy sweeps and covers, ONE! Stark trips and jackknife covers, TWO! Jacy gets around, schoolgirl with bridge, TWO! Stark CLUBS Jacy, ROCKS her, but Jacy shoves her into the corner. Tag to Gigi, she kicks but Stark blocks! Stark shoves Gigi down, but has to dodge a cheap shot. Stark elbows Gigi then springboard CROSSBODIES! cover, TWO! Tag to Lyons but Gigi tags Jacy. Lyons ROCKS Jacy with fast hands and a BACKHAND! Lyons FOREARMS Jacy in the corner! SUPERKICK! Jacy bails out but Gigi gets in, only for Stark to springboard MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Toxic Attraction bail out! KC Squared is doing as they said and watching this from backstage. Stark & Lyons dare someone, anyone, to get in the ring while NXT goes picture in picture.

Jacy & Gigi take their time given the sore spots Alba Fyre left them with. They talk and then Jacy gets in. Jacy and Lyons reset, but then Gigi tags in. Gigi storms up, Lyons blocks the punches to give punches. Gigi ducks, knees low, and she headlocks. Lyons powers out but Jacy tags in. Gigi sunset flips, Lyons stays up, but Jacy SUPERKICKS Lyons down! Jacy grins and runs in to back body block! Jacy snapmares and KICKS Lyons, then covers, TWO! Jacy snarls and she drags Lyons by her hair. Tag to Gigi, then Jacy feeds Lyons to Gigi’s BOOT! Gigi & Jacy then double suplex! Cover, TWO! Lyons is still in this and Gigi snarls.

Gigi drags Lyons away, bumps her off buckles, and then tags Jacy. They mug Lyons, Jacy stomps away then tags Gigi back in. The ref is busy keeping Stark back and that allows Gigi to bend Lyons back against the ropes! The ref notices and counts, Gigi lets off to tag Jacy. Now Toxic Attraction both pull Lyons back! They let off at 4 and Jacy throws Lyons down. Jacy drags Lyons up to tag Gigi, they mug Lyons more, then Gigi goes to suplex. Lyons blocks, throws body shots and she snap suplexes Gigi down! Lyons rolls Gigi up, TWO! Gigi BOOTS Lyons back down! Gigi wraps on a chinlock and she grinds Lyons down.

Lyons fights up, fans rally, but Gigi wrangles her back down. Gigi leans on Lyons but Lyons grits her teeth and fights back up. Lyons JAWBREAKERS free, then gets Gigi for an ARMBAR! NXT returns to single picture as Gigi reaches out. Gigi gets a ROPEBREAK with her foot, and Lyons lets off. Gigi hurries to stomp Lyons down! Gigi drags Lyons away from Stark, she tags Jacy in, and they double wrench to double KICK! Then BUZZSAW and SENTON! Cover, TWO! Jacy is frustrated but she clamps onto Lyons to half nelson chinbar! Fans rally up and Lyons fights up, only for Jacy to CLUB her! Jacy whips, Lyons reverses and rolls Jacy again, TWO!

Jacy and Lyons DOUBLE BOOT! Fans fire up as both women crawl, hot tags to Gigi and Stark! Stark rallies on Toxic Attraction, BIG elbow for Gigi! Gigi scurries to a corner but Stark runs in to uppercut! And GAMANGIRI! Stark whips, ROCKS, ELBOWS and MULE KICKS! Fans fire up, Stark runs, SLIDING KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Gigi survives but Stark calls to Lyons. Tag to Lyons and Stark hands off Gigi. SUPERKICK GERMAN SUPLEX COMBO! Cover, Jacy breaks it! Stark BOOTS Jacy! Jacy SUPERKICKS back! They both run, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! KC Squared likes what they see and so do the fans!

The teams regroup and then Lyons spots Gigi. They go after each other, the HEADBUTT is a bit double-edged. Lyons and Gigi fire off forearm after forearm then Lyons fireman’s carries. Gigi slips off, shoves Lyons and runs to STO! Gigi drags Lyons up, tags Jacy, and then wrenches for a ROUNDHOUSE! Jacy hits the NECKBREAKER! Cover, Stark breaks it! Jacy is beside herself and she tells Lyons that this is Toxic’s time! Jacy throws forearms, but Lyons ducks the elbow to HEEL KICK! Tag to Stark and she springboards! But Jacy moves! Stark rolls through but into a ROLLING ELBOW! Jacy DECKS Lyons and hurries to tag Gigi!

Toxic Attraction set up, but Lyons trips Jacy up! SUPERKICK for Jacy! Scoop and Z 360 for Gigi!! Tag to Lyons and then Stark PLANCHAS Jacy! Lyons roars for the LYONS DEN!! Cover, Lyons & Stark win!

Winners: Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark, by pinfall (NEW #1 contenders to the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships)

KC Squared can’t help but applaud. The duo was doubted, but Stark & Lyons pull off the victory! Will the Sin City Soldier & the Lioness bring that same energy to the title match?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“I have never feared pain. Pain makes you feel alive. But agony is a different type of feeling. When I injured my ankle, it was far, far more than just the searing pain of a snapped ligament. The agony I felt to vacate MY NXT UK Championship, a title I slayed an unbeatable force to win. A title I defended with pride and honor was taken away not by an opponent, but by circumstance. It was my privilege to shoulder the weight of an entire brand, but my biggest challenge was sitting and watching NXT UK breathe it’s last breath.

“I watched in frustration as worlds collided, titles were unified, knowing that it should have been me in that ring against Bron. Opportunities like that only happen once in a lifetime. I cannot change the past. But I can change the future. Bron Breakker is a great champion, but he’s a man. And at Halloween Havoc, he’s stepping into the ring with a machine. JD McDonagh likes to take credit for my injury, and my body bares the scars of our great battles. But JD knows in his heard that I stop at nothing to be victorious. I leave every ounce of myself in that ring, including days, weeks, months of my career! That is something that JD talks about, but he doesn’t possess.

“At Halloween Havoc, I will suffer, I will endure a great deal of pain. But it will be worth it, because I will once again become champion as the world says in unison, ‘Long Live the Czar!'” Will UNBESIEGBAR be the one to break Bron and trump the Irish Ace?

 

It’s the Grayson Waller Effect!

The 21st Century Success Story has the second episode of his talk show, “back by overwhelming demand.” There are millions watching, including Apollo, but he can’t do a thing, lad! Waller has security! Waller gets his split screen, he’s live on Instagram, and everyone already follows him. So get in the chat and get a “second vision” of this show. But let’s start off hot with his first guess, the Tony Hawk of NXT, Cora Jade! Jade makes her entrance and Waller moshes to her theme. Cora also has her kendo stick, and Waller introduces Cora’s opponent for Halloween Havoc, Roxanne Perez! Roxie makes her entrance and she smiles at her former friend.

Waller sits at the desk with the ladies, setting up his phone. Sorry, he meant to get a booster seat for Roxie. But Cora, Roxie, the rematch is coming and- Yeah, so Cora’s heard. But how many people did Roxie have to cry to in order to get it? Roxie says it was easy since everyone wants to see her kick Cora’s ass. Oh~, using everyone else to get what you want. Typical Roxie. Ladies, stop interrupting Waller. This is his show. But question: This is the second time Roxie is facing Cora 1v1. How is she feel- “I feel nothing. Because I’m going into this match with no emotion. Unlike at Heatwave, where I was full of mixed emotions-”

“Awww… Are you gonna cry?” Cora mocks Roxie’s “sob stories.” Fans boo but Roxie says this is no sob story. Maybe Cora doesn’t remember, but they wanted to break into the business together, rise to the top of the division and raise the bar together. They could be to new fans what the Four Horsewomen were to them! But the second Cora thought Roxie passed her, Cora threw this away. But that’s okay, Roxie will leave Cora behind to do what they wanted by herself. Cora says at Halloween Havoc, she will beat Roxie again, and the fans will all realize Roxie was a lot of hype and not a lot of talent. Fans boo but Cora says Roxie just isn’t good enough to be part of #GenerationJade.

Roxie says no, Cora. Now that the TRUE Cora is out, see it like it is: For one whole year, Cora put on this whole act that no one was buying. And the second Cora realized that, she blamed Roxie for it! And the fans! Waller agrees with that. Roxie tells Cora and her generation are full of- HEY! Do not use that type of language on this show! And that is the second time they’ve interrupted Waller. Just so you know, Waller has two huge scoops they don’t know about! First: in two weeks, they’ll be playing a game of Pick Your Poison. Roxie and Cora pick each other’s opponents, and the whole WWE roster is fair game! Instagram likes that! Roxie VS Omos!

But secondly- Cora interrupts and says that’s perfect! She’s already got a whole list in mind for Roxie. Well, Roxie does for Cora, too. Cora says Roxie won’t even make it to Halloween Havoc. Roxie says same for Cora. SECONDLY!! Waller please asks they stop interrupting him! Their match at Halloween Havoc is a SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Now we’re talking. But what’s wrong, Cora? Scared? Waller points out some great choices this year: Buried Alive; Casket Match; Bar Room Brawl. How about a Grayson Waller Exclusive and give it a spin right now! And if it lands on Spinner’s Choice, HE chooses! Heh heh. Oh, right. Good one.

Y’know what? You girls both suck! Spin the wheel now! Security, watch the guests. Cameraman, follow Waller! See, this is what you get on the Grayson Waller Effect. You never know what he’s gonna do! This is exciting. Wait, who is that in the hood? Fans think it’s Apollo, but Waller takes a peek. Can’t see in there. He checks the guy’s arm under the sleeve. White guy, okay! Spin the wheel! Waller wants a Coal Miner’s Glove! He doesn’t know what that is but it sounds great. Oh, oh, here we go. And… it’s a WEAPONS WILD MATCH! Not bad! But wait, security! Cora takes a swing, but Roxie blocks it! Security rushes in before this gets worse!

Waller films the brawl with his phone, fans chant “JERRY! JERRY!” and Waller is all smiles. But then he can see in his own camera, it’s APOLLO! He was in disguise as security! And he drags Waller under the ring! Just what is gonna happen under there?! Cora and Roxie can’t get loose, but this isn’t going to end here! Just what won’t they use against each other in a Weapons Wild Match?

Wait! Waller emerges from under the ring, and his eyes are bleeding red!! That was Apollo’s gruesome vision, and it has come true! Apollo stalks Waller and asks where he’s going. Waller scrambles away to the back, but will Apollo get his own revenge match at Halloween Havoc?

 

The Schism talks with the red hoodie.

What have they been doing all day? They had ONE job. All of their time and energy is put into this mission, yet red hoodie kid can’t even take this seriously! Joe Gacy has The Dyad cool off. But red hoodie kid does need to understand: they’re not mad, just disappointed. “You need to be better.” The Schism leaves, will little red hoodie kid make things right?

 

Julius Creed VS Duke Hudson!

The Diamond Mine wants revenge on Damon Kemp, but it seems Julius will have to make it through the flop to get at him. Will Julius have a hot hand after tonight? Or will he bust and have to fold?

The bell rings and Julius circles with Duke. They approach, Duke knees low and CLUBS Julius hard. Julius goes to ropes, Duke knees and stomps and CLUBS away! The ref counts and fans boo but Duke lets off at 4. Duke dusts his hands off and goes back to Julius. Duke whips, Julius ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Duke! Julius then hits an EXPLODER! Fans fire up as the straps come down! Julius lifts Duke for the ROLLING SPINEBSUTER! And the SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, Julius wins!

Winner: Julius Creed, by pinfall

Blink and you might’ve missed that one! This is how angry Julius is right now, and Duke really did choose the wrong time to push buttons. But then BRUTUS gets at Duke! Ivy tries to stop him but he’s already in “Brutus Smash” mode! Brutus puts Duke back in the ring but Julius tries to stop him. Brutus hammers away on Duke! Julius and Ivy drag Brutus away, but then Damon Kemp talks from the perch! “Congrats on your win tonight, Julius. But at Halloween Havoc, things are going to be… a little bit different.” Brutus tells Damon to get down here so they can beat his ass! Easy, Big Brute, you had your match. Now it’s Julius’ turn.

Julius says that’s fine. Damon, Julius will be his brother’s keeper. Damon is so arrogant, Julius can’t wait to beat him down. Damon says damn right he’s cocky! You would be, too, if you were this talented. Julius might be his brother’s keeper, but Brutus is Damon’s BI*CH! And y’know what? Damon’s so confident, that if Julius somehow does beat him, he’ll give Brutus another match, “but under one condition.” Brutus says he doesn’t need another match! Just another five minutes! Whatever Damon wants, he’s got it! Julius says he knows how Damon does things. He probably wants like a million stipulations.

So what’s the deal, Damon? Loser leaves NXT? Julius has to retire? End his career? Damon says this is Julius’ downfall. It proves Julius is so self-centered. Not everything is about him! This whole stipulation isn’t about Julius, it’s about BRUTUS. Damon has things he wants to accomplish in NXT, and he cannot do that if he has to constantly look over his shoulder. Julius, when Damon wins, it isn’t Julius who leaves. It’s BRUTUS! Brutus is furious, but then he accepts for Julius! Julius doesn’t like to be cold hearted, but when it calls for it, there is no one and he means NO ONE colder. He has ice in his veins.

So it won’t be good enough to beat Kemp. It won’t be good enough to pin him. It won’t even be good enough to submit him! Julius has to send Kemp out the same way Kemp did Roddy. If Kemp likes stipulations, then at Halloween Havoc, Kemp VS Julius, in an AMBULANCE MATCH! Kemp loves it! And oh, tell Roddy to make room for Julius at the hospital. Julius says if Kemp calls for him, Julius answers on the first ring. So Kemp, get your s*it together, Julius is waiting! Will Julius save the Diamond Mine singlehandedly? Or will Kemp pick it apart piece by piece?

 

JD McDonagh speaks.

“I have a pretty unique perspective on my opponents at Halloween Havoc. I’m the only man on this planet to share a ring with both Bron Breakker and Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov is a former NXT UK Champion. He’s unorthodox, ferocious, very dangerous. We all know Bron: he’d run through a brick wall to keep the title. You can be forgiven for looking at these two guys and thinking they’re two wildly different athletes. But to the educated brain, you can see that these guys are exactly the same. Boundless energy, passionate, they both use their bodies as a weapon, and neither one of them have two brain cells in their heads put together.

“They’re gonna go out there and try to see who the toughest is, who can withstand the most pain. But what’s my plan? I’m gonna let them. The bait’s already out there, I’m just gonna let the two animals tear each other apart. Because you see, at Halloween Havoc, it isn’t the strongest man that’s gonna walk away champion. It’s not the most aggressive. It’s the smartest. And you can call me whatever you want. Call me a vulture, a jackal, a hyena. But by the end of the night at Halloween Havoc, when the lights go down, you will call me NXT Champion.” Will the Irish Ace’s opportunistic strategy help him take the title?

 

Hank Walker talks with his friends in security.

They’re all proud of him for making the jump to NXT Superstar, and he has a huge opportunity. His first match as a contracted superstar! But don’t blow it! They’re just razzing him. But Hank says Xyon Quinn won’t know what hit him. And then Quincy Elliot walks in to say hey! The Super Diva does wanna warn Hank. Watch out for Xyon. As much as Quincy loves those tribal tattoos, he kinda pissed Xyon off. What? Who could be mad at you, Quincy? Exactly! What’s with Xyon? But Hank appreciates the advice, and he’s gonna head out. They all cheer Hank on, and Quincy breaks it down. Will Big Hank get an even bigger win than the one that won him a contract?

 

Axiom speaks.

“Next week is the trilogy match between myself and Nathan Frazer. When you think of trilogies, some of the greatest superheroes come to mind. This story with Nathan is not playing out on a comic book page, it’s live-action. It’s intense. And I know he will bring out things we have never seen before. The first two matches were so close. It could’ve gone either way. And I expect this one to be even closer. But the cool thing about the trilogy story with Nathan is that instead of reading it on a page, I get to write the final chapter.” Will Axiom be undeniable when both his pride and the final spot in the NXT North American Championship Ladder match is on the line?

 

Hank Walker VS Xyon Quinn!

Hank Walker was a superstar prospect paying his dues as a security guard, and taking out his frustrations on “Big Body” Javier Bernal was just the thing he needed to prove himself to the WWE. Will he prove they made the right choice? Or will Xyon prove he IS the “X Factor” after all?

The bell rings and Xyon RAMS Hank into a corner! Xyon rams his shoulder in more and more, then whips corner to corner. Hank reverses but runs into a back elbow. Hank staggers, but he still arm-drags Xyon! And again! Fans fire up for Hank as he whips corner to corner. Xyon reverses but Hank comes back, only for Xyon to SPINEBUSTER! Fans boo while Xyon snarls and throws down knees at Hank against the ropes. Xyon lets off as the ref counts, to go out and CLUB Hank back into the ring. Xyon snarls, slides back in and he drags Hank up to bend him back against ropes. Xyon UPPERCUTS, then back suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Xyon clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Hank down. Hank endures, fights up and fans rally. Hank throws body shots, but Xyon CLUBS him! Xyon HEADBUTTS Hank, whips him to a corner, but Hank comes back to LARIAT! Fans fire up as the shirt comes off! Hank runs in to THESZ PRESS! Hank rains down fast hands and fans are loving it! Hank then bumps Xyon off buckles, bumps him off more buckles, and then more! Hank runs in to SPLASH! Xyon staggers, Hank runs in again, but Xyon dodges! Xyon KICKS the leg, runs and RUNS IT STRAIGHT! Cover, Xyon wins!

Winner: Xyon Quinn, by pinfall

Well, Hank won’t have a historic winning streak to start, but Xyon doesn’t look done with him! Xyon aims from the corner, wanting to hit Hank again. But here comes QUINCY! Fans rally for the Super Diva as he backs Xyon down. Quincy helps Hank up and they fist bump. Quincy even gives Hank an encouraging smack on the butt! Y’know, it’s a sports thing. Quincy dances and Hank isn’t sure what to make of it, but does Hank at least have a friend watching his back?

 

Cameron Grimes finds little red hoodie kid.

He doesn’t know who this person is, but they don’t need to be dealing with Joe Gacy. All Gacy does is talk out both sides of his mouth! “Listen, listen. The guy’s a hypocrite. And it’s already bad enough the guy has The Dyad-” BOOT! Rip Fowler kicks Grimes down, then he and Jagger Reed mug Grimes! They RAM Grimes into a trunk, then Gacy hands Jagger a trash can. “Let it out.” Jagger unleashes on Grimes with the can! Gacy smiles and takes the can for himself to SMACK Grimes on the back! The Schism smiles as they look to red hoodie kid. “Job well done! Welcome to the Schism’s tree.” They hug it out, but just who is this in the hood?

 

Briggs & Jensen find the Brawling Brutes backstage.

The good ol’ boys want Dunne to take it easy, they’re just here to wish them good luck tonight. And they also want to let the Brutes know that once they beat Pretty Deadly and become the NEW NXT Tag Team Champions, Briggs & Jensen want the first shot. Oh, is that right? But then Malik Blade & Edris Enofe walk in, and they say they know the Brutes are gonna destroy Pretty Deadly. Ridge takes a guess and figures these two want the first shot, too. How’d he know that? Briggs & Jensen tell Malik & Edris to get in line. Now they’re all arguing, and Dunne SMACKS the lockers with a chair.

Ridge tells Briggs & Jensen that if they want a shot at the Brutes, bring that same aggressive style they brought to Gallus. And as for Malik & Edris, they need to get serious for once. Dunne says he’s done talking! it’s fight night! Watch and learn. The Brutes put on banger after banger after banger! The other teams agree, that is true. But then they argue with each other about who really gets the next shot. But will it all be for naught if the Brutes fail to dethrone Pretty Deadly?

 

Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

Kelly asks the NXT Champion his thoughts on what both Ilja Dragunov and JD McDonagh have said about their Triple Threat. Bron says they can watch as much film as they want, train as hard as they want, but Halloween Havoc’s gonna be a dog fight. But then in walks Javier Bernal. He introduces himself as “Big Body Javi” and says he’s a future NXT Champion. Bron’s already proven he can beat JD, and he probably could take Dragunov 1v1. But why make it a Triple Threat, the same kind of match that cost him at Roadblock? Javi remembers, he’s got the brain of an elephant. Bron has all the tools in the world, except up there.

But hey, not everyone can be Big Body Javi. Bron says, “Big Body Javi? Yeah, I can tell. Look, my temper got me into the first Triple Threat match, my pride got me into this one. And your stupidity is gonna make me request a match against you for next week!” Javi just realized he put his foot in his mouth. Will he end up an appetizer for the Big Booty Nephew before the feast that is Halloween Havoc?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS The Brawling Brutes!

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince thought they were clear and free to be the forever champions of NXT, but then the Bruiserweight and Yorkshire Grit returned to the brand! Will the “commonwealth” soon have new nobles? Or will their lordships survive this Tuesday Night Fight?

NXT returns and Pretty Deadly makes their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if Ridge & Dunne can bring these belts to SmackDown!

The teams sort out and Ridge starts with Elton. They circle, tie up, and Elton headlocks. Ridge powers up and out then hip tosses Elton hard! Fans fire up while Elton scrambles to ropes. Elton BOOTS Ridge, tags Kit, but Kit runs into a hip toss, too! Ridge taunts Kit, but Kit JAWBREAKERS! Kit CLUBS Ridge, suplexes, but Ridge blocks! Ridge suplexes and SLAMS Kit down! Tag to Dunne and Ridge butterfly suplexes Kit, for the SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Dunne keeps Kit from Elton, hammerlocks one arm and pulls the other. Fans cheer as Dunne bends Kit’s fingers! And then bends some more! Dunne then goes after the other arm, isolates it, and STOMPS!

Kit clutches the elbow and fans rally up. Dunne drags Kit up, wrenches the bad arm, but Elton jumps in, to tag Kit? The ref says that doesn’t count by a long shot, but it is all a distraction tactic so Kit can throw Dunne by his hair! Now Kit tags Elton legally, and Elton stomps away on Dunne. Fans boo but Elton covers, TWO! Elton keeps an eye on Ridge and he headlocks Dunne. Dunne powers out, hurdles and drops to then CLOBBER Elton! Tag to Ridge, Ridge gets Kit and together, the Brutes give him BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Dunne runs to DECK Kit with the tenth! Fans fire up as Pretty Deadly flounders and NXT goes picture in picture.

Dunne and Ridge fall back while Pretty Deadly regroups. Elton is wary as he slides in, and he ties up with Ridge. Ridge RAMS Elton into a corner, EuroUppers him over an dover, then wrenches to whip corner to corner hard! Elton hits buckles then the mat, and Ridge storms over. Elton throws hands, CHOPS, and uppercuts! Elton whips, Ridge reverses and CLOBBERS him! Ridge drags Elton up, tags Dunne, and Dunne goes up while Ridge wrenches an arm. Dunne gives DOUBLE KNEES to the arm! Dunne then wrenches the arm, wrangles Elton to the mat, and he drops DOUBLE KNEES on the elbow! Dunne then runs in at the corner, but Elton dodges!

Elton tags Kit, They double whip Dunne into the adjacent corner! Then they get Dunne up in a Tree of Woe for Elton to BOOT Dunne down! Kit taunts Ridge, drags Dunne up, and wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Kit wrangles Dunne now, and he drops knees, only to miss the arm! Kit clutches his leg, but he still BOOTS Dunne down! Kit rains down fists, smothers Dunne to a cover, TWO as Dunne bridges up! Kit wraps on a chinlock and makes it a cobra clutch as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally as Dunne endures, and Dunne reaches up. Dunne gets Kit’s nose! The ref reprimands, but Kit lets go and Dunne CHOPS him!

Dunne CHOPS Elton, ROCKS Kit, ELBOWS Elton, but Kit RAMS Dunne! Tag to Elton, he runs in to UPPERCUT! Dunne flops down and Elton looms over him. Fans rally up but Elton stands on Dunne’s head and pulls the arm! The ref counts, Elton lets off, and Elton slaps Dunne around. Elton messes with Dunne’s hair, but Dunne stands up to ROCK Elton! Elton ROCKS Dunne but Dunne ROCKS Elton! The forearms keep going, Dunne fires off haymakers and CHOPS! Dunne CHOPS Elton off his feet! Dunne reaches for Ridge but Elton whips him away, so Dunne uses that momentum to DECK Kit! Elton runs in but Dunne dodges, hot tag to Ridge!

Ridge the Fridge runs and rallies on Elton with big shoulders! Ridge ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING SHOULDER! Fans fire up and Elton flounders. Ridge runs in to SPLASH Elton! Kit runs in, but gets a scoop and POWERSLAM for it! Elton swings but his arms get caught, for a HEADBUTT! Ridge then scoops Elton to POWERSLAM him on Kit! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Ridge and he drags Elton up. Ridge reels Elton in but Elton drops to KANGAROO KICK! Elton UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again! Elton runs but Ridge CLOBBERS him back! Fans are thunderous while both men are down!

Ridge and Elton crawl for their corners, kicking at each other. Hot tag to Kit, and he jumps on Ridge! Ridge carries Kit like a backpack but he’s fading in the sleeper hold. But then Ridge gets a second wind and he stomps his way to Dunne for the tag! Dunne goes up and he SUPER SUNSET BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Kit survives but Dunne snarls. Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” as Dunne grabs the arms. Dunne gives Kit DRAGON STOMPS! Then Dunne DOUBLE WRISTLOCKS the arm! Kit endures, reaches out, but Elton grabs his hand. Dunne lets Kit go to STOMP Elton! And then ASAI MOONSAULT! Fans fire up and Dunne goes back for Kit, SNAP GERMAN!

Dunne dodges Elton, SNAP GERMAN! Fans fire up again as Dunne runs at Kit to GAMANGIRI! Then he runs at Elton, but Elton dodge the knee. Elton runs to Kit, Kit goes up and over and gets the boost, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, but Ridge breaks it! Kit DROPKICKS Ridge for it, and then tags Elton. Pretty Deadly aim at Dunne, DOUBLE SHOTEI! But Ridge returns, only to get DOUBLE BOOTS! Dunne ENZIGURIS Elton, but Kit yoyos to LARIAT Dunne! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Kit is shocked! Fans are loving it, though, and are giving a standing ovation! But Pretty Deadly sets up, SPILT- Ridge CLOBBERS Elton!

Dunne gets an ARMBAR on Kit!! Elton DECKS Ridge but is also down! Dunne has the arm, but Elton pushes things over to a cover! TWO!!! Dunne is up, he blocks the haymaker and bends the fingers, to SNAP them!! And then the pump handle, BITTER END!! Cover, but Elton helps Kit with the ROPEBREAK! Fans boo but the ref can’t reprimand what he didn’t see. Ridge saw it, though, and he’s pissed! He chases Elton into the ring, Dunne is there, too! Elton swings at the ref! The ref dodges the haymaker, though, and Dunne ROCKS Elton! Ridge POUNCES Elton out of the ring! Then Dunne GAMANGIRIS Kit!

Tag to Ridge, the Brutes bring Kit around, scoop, ROUNDHOUSE NORTHERN GRIT!! Cover, but wait, IMPERIUM is here?! Giovanni Vinci gets on the apron but Ridge DECKS him! Dunne spots Ludwig Kaiser, goes outside and MULE KICKS him! But then Elton CLOBBERS Dunne from behind! Kit CHOP BLOCKS Ridge, tags Elton, and Pretty Deadly sets up! SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly wins!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Another screw job, just like with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships! But Imperium goes after the Brutes again, they all brawl to the back, allowing Pretty Deadly to celebrate surviving the night! But wait! Malik Blade & Edris Enofe storm out, followed by Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen! Pretty Deadly think they cleared everyone out but are proven dead wrong! Will they have to face all four men to prove they’re the best?


My Thoughts:

Great episode for NXT to introduce all the new aspects of this “White ‘n’ Gold” era. New commentators and interviewers (partially because Vic Joseph & McKenzie Mitchell are on their honeymoon) and the new look to fit the new logo, all good stuff. And a lot of great build towards Halloween Havoc, with that being NXT’s return to Saturday streaming events a la TakeOvers. Great vignette promos from Dragunov and JD, and a great interview promo from Bron where he actually used his “shoot voice,” not his “Steiner” voice. Javier Bernal stepping in it was also great, and he’ll be a good tune-up for Bron next week. Still personally hoping Dragunov wins, but I think Bron is finally finding himself as a character.

Great stuff for the North American Championship story. Melo has a great match with Oro but of course Trick helps Melo win, and we get a great transition right into Chase VS Wagner. Ironically, Chase U being ringside is what costs Chase and Wagner is going to bring some beef to the ladder match. That always seems rather standard for a multi-man ladder match like this, and Wagner is a natural pick. Sanga and Frazer have a good promo together, and I could’ve sworn Frazer VS Axiom was this week. But Veer showing up here, that’s great. He wasn’t really working out on Raw anymore, he was just another mean monster like Omos, so resetting his personality in NXT and reuniting with Sanga is great stuff.

Lash has a good promo going into her match with Wendy Choo, and it was a good match, and it was a bit of a surprise that Wendy won. It was also a surprise no Heel attacked her after. Maybe Lash will lash back at Wendy next week to set up a rematch for later. Then I loved that they decided to change things up from the Six Woman Tag. Alba “abducting” Mandy was a hilarious and aggressive way to push things to a women’s title match at Halloween Havoc, and we got a great #1 contenders match from Gigi & Jacy VS Lyons & Stark. KC Squared has a good promo to put their run together into perspective, but I have mixed feelings on Lyons & Stark winning.

I suppose it works that they’re proving people wrong by becoming a strong team, but WWE has done a lot of “the makeshift team beats the established team” these last few years. I’m sure Halloween Havoc’s title match will be awesome, but I would hope for KC Squared’s sake, they win in the end to reestablish that a long term team beats a short term team in the end. As for Alba and Mandy, I hope this is the moment Mandy loses to bring things full circle. She won the title at Halloween Havoc last year, she’ll basically get the one-year reign accolade and then she, Gigi & Jacy can be called up as SmackDown’s trio to counter Damage Control as Raw’s trio.

The inaugural Grayson Waller Effect talk show segment was a bit awkward, but I feel like they ironed out the problems and made this second one work. For one, Roxanne is finally showing some sass to match Cora’s, and I like that Waller kept getting annoyed by them. We got a good look at Spin the Wheel for this year, and I totally knew Roxie VS Cora II was going to allow weapons like Cora’s favorite little kendo stick. Cora won the first time so I think Roxie wins this one, and brutally. Also, great appearance from Apollo, of course Waller ends up with the “bloody” eyes from the prediction, and I would actually love if the blow-off for this is Eye for an Eye, because it just makes sense.

Good stuff from Hank, Quincy and Xyon. Xyon VS Quincy could make for a good match, but also maybe Xyon finds a tag partner to take on Quincy and Hank together. At this point, maybe it’s Duke since he likes picking fights. Duke gets SQUASHED by Julius, that’s good momentum for Julius. And while the promos weren’t the sharpest, Julius, Brutus and Damon Kemp set up quite the angle for Halloween Havoc. That Ambulance Match is going to be a lot of fun, but I don’t see the Creeds being split up like this. Plus, Kemp needs some comeuppance for what he’s done, this could be that moment.

There’s a lot of intrigue in this red hoodie kid and their connection to The Schism. I go with “they/them” because it’s hard to say who is under there. This could be Schism’s North American Championship member, or it could be their first female superstar recruit, it probably depends on what NXT is feeling. But “Red” setting up Grimes was good stuff, and thinking about it, Grimes confronting Red and perhaps revealing them could set up the twist that it IS a female superstar so Grimes can’t go after them. Maybe Grimes gets Chase U as an ally instead of Edris & Malik now that it looks like it could be 4v4.

And of course, great stuff for the NXT Tag Division. Pretty Deadly was so goofy in their “lordly” costumes, the Brutes showing up was a great surprise, and a great main event match out of them. Great interactions from the good ol’ boys, Malik & Edris and the Brutes that of course foreshadow the coming tag title match. Imperium screwing the Brutes over should’ve been expected, this just adds heat for their SmackDown/Extreme Rules stuff. Pretty Deadly VS Briggs & Jensen VS Malik & Edris is going to be great, would love if they decided to Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal for this match, too. Imagine a Triple Threat Tag Trick or Street Fight so they can all just go nuts.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell's AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/4/22)

Dark paves the way to the Dynamite Anniversary!

AEW is about to celebrate Dynamite’s Anniversary, but there’s plenty of action in the Dark! Will Dante Martin & Matt Sydal outwork the Workhorsemen?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Marina Shafir VS Sio Nieves; Shafir wins.
  • Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters VS AR Fox; Daivari wins.
  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/Mark Sterling VS Rohit Raju & Invictus Khash; Nese & Woods win.
  • Abadon VS Freya States; Abadon wins.
  • Slim J w/ The Trustbusters VS Blake Christian; Slim J wins.
  • Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon VS Eli Isom & Chris Farrow; Nemeth & Bononi win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Terry Kid; Boudreaux wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Skye wins.
  • The Iron Savages w/ JT Davidson VS Gus De La Vega & Levy Valenzuela; The Iron Savages win.
  • Dante Martin & Matt Sydal VS The Workhorsemen; Dante & Sydal win.

QUICK NOTES

Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
