It’s a SUPER SmackDown!?

What does that mean?! Seems we’ll find out as SmackDown begins its own journey down the Road to WrestleMania!

 

Roman Reigns and The Usos are here!

The Big Dog and the Bloodline may have put down the King and his Court (jesters), but this is far from over! Will tonight’s Super SmackDown help end the war? Roman and the Usos grab some mics and wants Tulsa, Oklahoma to get louder. But the Royal Rumble has come and gone, and the good news: Roman whooped Corbin all over the stadium. The bad news: Roman didn’t win the Rumble. The Usos know he doesn’t like to lose. But with the help from the fans, the Bloodline is going to beat Baron and his b*tches to head for Mania!

But speaking of, here comes King Corbin and his loyal subjects. Fans boo but Corbin tells them to save it. Corbin tells Roman that without the Usos, Roman wouldn’t have won. “Roman Reigns cheated his way to a victory!” In fact, if they didn’t attack together like savages, Corbin would’ve been in better shape for the Rumble and would’ve won! But it’s all because of them that he isn’t. So that is why he demanded this rematch to make them pay!

Wait, whoa, wait. All that yelling. Why Corbin so mad? “Mr. My Head’s Too Big for My Crown” needs to be reminded. The last time they checked: Superkick to Dolph, Superkick to Roode, Superman Punch to Dolph, Superman Punch to Roode, Spear to Dolph, Spear to Roode. But Corbin, got Superkick’d, Super Punched and Super Speared! But just listen here King. You’re in the wrong game. He’s playing Checkers, they’re playing Chess. And that’s checkmate, boy! Yes, very funny. Must’ve had a lot of time sitting at home playing games after embarrassing the family. And while they were arguing over red and black, the Court was beating Roman down. Corbin has footage replay of the cuffing and dog food.

But Roman thinks it’s funny that Corbin is living in the past. He acts like that was his greatest moment, or he just has a dog food fetish. Well how about this then? Let’s add a stipulation to tonight’s match: losers EAT DOG FOOD! Challenge accepted! But that’s great! Because there’s a huge surprise! “Go on, bring it out!” A big ol’ heaping of dog food is served. “Hope y’all hungry.” Friday Night Lockdown is going to get nasty! Who gets put in the dog house with plenty of supper?

 

SmackDown Tag Team Championship #1 Contenders Fatal 4 Way: Heavy Machinery VS Lucha House Party VS The Revival VS John Morrison & The Miz!

The Super Showdown is coming back, and The New~ Day~ are going to be putting their gold on the line! Will Otis & Tucker, Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik, Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson or the Guru and A-Lister punch their tickets tonight in Tulsa?

SmackDown returns as fans rally with “Lucha! Lucha!” Lince fights up from a chinlock and throws body shots on Morrison. Morrison knees low to tag in Miz! Miz and Morrison double whip but Lince goes up and over and rolls. Morrison ROUNDHOUSES Metalik but Lince gets a DOUBLE Golden Rewind! But no Metalik to tag! Lince crawls to another corner, preferring Heavy Machinery. Fans fire up as Otis gets the hot tag! Dozer rallies on everyone that comes his way! Miz dodges but still gets run over! Morrison runs in but gets a flapjack! Miz returns to get scooped, spun and slammed! Otis fires up as Tucker rallies on The Revival! Springboard crossbody!

The Super Showdown indeed has a super showdown coming! Miz and Morrison have had the tag team champions’ number, but will it be AWESOME in Arabia?

 

Heavy Machinery regroups backstage.

And Fire & Desire walk over. Mandy Rose feels bad that they lost. But she thanks him for all the help during the Royal Rumble. “You’re welcome, Mandy.” But Tucker says this is Otis’s chance. What? They’re right here, what’s going on? Otis is just nervous. Why is he nervous? Well, Otis does like Mandy. And so, uh, that is to say, will she go out with him next Friday? Mandy says she has plans next Friday. But not for Valentine’s Friday. Great! Well the date is set and Fire & Desire head off for their match. Is this going to be the greatest Valentine’s Day for Otis ever?!

 

Daniel Bryan reconsiders his decisions.

After the brutal Strap Match at the Royal Rumble, Bryan couldn’t show his daughter the marks on his back. Does he love wrestling too much? Short answer: yes. Long answer: he prays that his daughter one day finds something that she can be as passionate about as he is for wrestling.

 

This Week in WWE History:

Halftime Heat ’99, an Empty Arena Match between The Rock and Mick Foley as Mankind went down on January 31st, and ended with a keg-carrying forklift cover! Will Super Bowl LIV be as memorable as that night?

 

Fire & Desire VS Bliss-Cross!

Romance aside, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville are fighting for a chance at the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships just as much as Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross! Which team takes the next step towards the Kabuki Warriors here tonight?

SmackDown returns as Mandy & Sonya make their entrance. Then they blindside Bliss-Cross before the bell! They throw Nikki out but Alexa throws Sonya out. Nikki traps Sonya in the apron skirt and Alexa hits a baseball slide dropkick! Mandy runs in but gets a right hand! Sonya bounces Alexa off the announce desk! Sonya puts Alexa in but the ref keeps her back to check on the Goddess. Alexa wants to fight and the bell rings. Cover, ONE and Sonya rams knees over and over. Tag to Mandy and they stomp away on Alexa. Fans rally up and Sonya tags back in. Fire & Desire mug Alexa but Alexa hits back. Sonya snapmares and wraps on a chinlock to grind Alexa down. Fans rally up and Alexa fights back to her feet. Alexa throws elbows and breaks free, but Mandy tags in.

Mandy lurks and Sonya clobbers Alexa. Sonya throws knees but Alexa hits an STO! Alexa drops knees but gets CLOBBERED! Mandy covers but Nikki breaks it!

Winners: Bliss-Cross, Alexa Bliss pinning

A huge win for the former tag team champions! Will this bring around a rematch between Alexa and Nikki with Asuka and Kairi Sane?

 

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Sami Zayn & Cesaro VS Braun Strowman!

After weeks of “The Great Liberator” doing everything he could to keep the King of Strong Style from facing The Monster Among Men 1v1, there is no more running! Will Nakamura #GetTheseHands? Or will Sami have a plan to screw over Strowman?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the inevitable match-up begins!

Nakamura and Strowman circle. Strowman lunges but Nakamura evades. Nakamura gives quick kicks but Strowman shoves. Nakamura gets around to throw more strikes, but Strowman runs him over! Fans fire up with Strowman but he runs into a boot. Nakamura climbs on for a sleeper but Strowman rams into buckles. Strowman throws Nakamura off to ram him into the other corner and throw hands! Strowman runs corner to corner and corner splashes Nakamura! Sami was late to saving Nakamura, so Strowman goes again! Nakamura dodges the boot and sweeps the other leg! Nakamura kicks Strowman in the head then rams in knees! Fans boo as Nakamura hits Strowman in the ribs and puts him on the ropes for Bad Vibrations! The ref backs Nakamura off but Sami gets a cheap shot in!

Nakamura clamps onto Strowman with a facelock but Strowman endures. Fans boo and jeer Sami as he taunts Strowman. Strowman powers up and powers Nakamura off! Nakamura is up, one kick misses but the other gets Strowman! Nakamura stomps Strowman more then gives him kicks. Strowman grabs Nakamura with one hand and CLOBBERS Nakamura with the other!

Fans are fired up as Nakamura bails out and Strowman pursues. Strowman runs Nakamura over again! He puts Nakamura back in, scoops, but Nakamura fights free. Nakamura dodges again then KICKS Strowman in the head! BLINDSIDE KNEE! Cover, TWO!!

Team Sami can’t believe Strowman survives, but Sami is whispering to Cesaro. Sami distracts the ref at the corner but the ref senses Cesaro sneaking in! But the buckle is exposed! Nakamura goes to bump Strowman off it, but Strowman blocks! Strowman bumps Nakamura off the bare buckle! Scoop and MONSTER SLAM! Cover, STROWMAN WINS!!

Winner: Braun Strowman, by pinfall; NEW WWE Intercontinental Champion

Finally Strowman gets his hands on a title! And Tulsa celebrates with Strowman as he holds the title up high! Sami is in shock most of all as he and Nakamura retreat. Will Strowman take this momentum all the way to WrestleMania?

 

SmackDown returns to Sami Zayn complaining.

“That’s injustice!” What Strowman did is robbery live on television! An interviewer comes along to ask where Team Sami goes from here, and Sami is even further frustrated. They’re dealing with a crisis! But she’s new here, right? Well he’ll cut her a break, but for future reference: do not EVER interrupt with a hack question like that! Elias’ strumming in the ring cuts Sami off. Sami hopes he didn’t hear that. Elias calls out to Sami and says he is scheduled to perform. No one wants to hear Sami talk so Elias just figured to move things along. Sami is trying to stay calm, so Elias needs to understand: no one cares about his jingles! Put the guitar down and shut up! And that goes for fans, too! Sami is far more important so he needs to say his piece.

Elias apologizes. By all means, continue. Sami does, but Elias keeps playing, too. Sami gets upset again but Elias apologizes. He thought Sami was done. Sami is getting mad but Elias says, “My bad.” Then plays more. “Cesaro, please take care of this situation.” The Swiss Cyborg heads for the ring! Elias greets Tulsa and with the Road to WrestleMania having begun, we know what that means. Elias knows Cesaro is on his way, but he has a song, so please, clap along. Too late, Cesaro arrives! Will Cesaro silence Elias for Sami’s sake?

The brawl is on the moment Cesaro hits the ring, and Elias stomps away! Elias stomps a mudhole but Cesaro boots back. Elias LARIATS Cesaro down then whips, to back drop! A BIG knee sends Cesaro out, then Elias climbs the corner. Referees stop this from continuing, but will Elias keep on walking towards WrestleMania?

 

Chad Gable VS Sheamus!

Shorty G fell to the Fella at the Royal Rumble, but this fight is far from over! What happens in this Super SmackDown rematch?

Well for starters, Gable blindsides Sheamus during his entrance! Shorty G has a big smile as he gets in the ring first. Sheamus isn’t so happy, and stares daggers at “the vermin.” The Celtic Warrior heads for the ring while we go to break.

SmackDown returns as Gable and Sheamus tie up. Sheamus grinds Gable down in a facelock, then knees low. Sheamus lifts Gable onto his shoulders but Gable slips out. Gable goes to monkey flip but Sheamus blocks it! Sheamus puts Gable on the top rope, but Gable body scissors Sheamus out! Gable gets on the apron and leaps, but into Sheamus’ arms! Rolling Senton! Sheamus shouts, “Are you not entertained!?” before he puts Gable in the ring. Sheamus stomps Gable around then hauls him up in a torture rack. He throws Gable down hard, then drags Gable by an arm. Sheamus drags Gable up for another torture rack, and another SLAM! Fans cheer Gable on even as Sheamus drags Gable up. Sheamus says this underdog is just a rat, but Gable throws big hands! And CHOPS! So many chops!

Sheamus blocks but Gable HEADBUTTS! Gable kicks out a leg and runs, only to get run over! Gable bails out and hotshots Sheamus back! Then Gable drags Sheamus out to throw hands on the apron! The ref counts but Gable gets up to throw hands and a headbutt! Gable climbs, leaps, missile dropkick hits! Sheamus goes to a corner but Gable runs in, rolling kick! Sheamus is down again and Gable goes back up. Gable MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Sheamus survives but Gable won’t give up. Gable stalks behind Sheamus and waistlocks, but Sheamus elbows free. Sheamus fireman’s carries but Gable sunset flips! TWO, and Sheamus scoops for the Irish Curse Backbreaker! Sheamus goes to the corner as fans fire up. Gable stands, to get a BROGUE! Cover, Sheamus wins!

Winner: Sheamus, by pinfall

That’s 2-0 for the Celtic Warrior! Gable’s got a big heart but Sheamus’ boot is bigger. Will Sheamus move on to bigger and better opponents from now on?

 

It’s SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley!

After a tough fight against the Sassy Southern Belle, Lacey Evans, Bad Bad Bayley managed to escape with the win. But a win is a win and that is why Bayley smiles here tonight. Fans boo as she holds up her title. “Damn, I’m good!” Bayley knows there’s “just something” about her that can’t be taught, reproduced or touched. She showed us how a real role model wins quickly and decisively. Bayley made good on her promises when she beat Lacey, crushed her dreams, and got payback for the injuries to Sasha Banks! Fans keep going “What?” and Bayley mocks them. Bayley did what she did, all with little Summer Evans in the front row. Summer’s hero turned out to be a loser and a failure!

But don’t worry, kids. If you want an inspirational role model, ignore the sheep and look to Bayley! “Because a true champion surpasses them all.” Bayley has beat everyone there is! No surprise that Charlotte will want Bayley at WrestleMania, so Charlotte should just get out here now. But instead of The Queen, it’s THE GLOW! Naomi is here with her own version of a DeadMau5 helmet as she heads for the ring! The former SmackDown Women’s Champion joins Bayley in the ring as Tulsa fires up, but Bayley has no idea what to make of this return. Naomi is grabs a mic and says she has missed being on SmackDown! But now that she is back, she can’t help but hear all the trash talk going on. Bayley bragging, lying, running her mouth and saying she’s beat everyone. She ain’t never beat Naomi! So as a former champion, Naomi feels the title could use some glow.

Naomi tells Bayley that the next chance she gets, she’ll- Bayley sucker punches Naomi! Fans boo as Bayley rains down hands then throws off her jacket. Bayley grabs the title belt and swings, but Naomi dodges and springboards for an enziguri! Naomi has Bayley down and out on the outside! But will Naomi get into that title scene whether Bayley likes it or not?

 

Six Man Tag, Losers Eat Dog Food: Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode VS Roman Reigns & The Uso!

The stipulation speaks for itself. If the Wolf King and his Court can find a way to win, the Big Dog and his cousins will be made to eat big nasty bowls of processed meat. But the same goes the other way around, making Corbin eat his words on top of it. Which trio will be sick to their stomachs after tonight?

The trios sort out and Jimmy starts against Corbin. Corbin swings on Roman but Jimmy gives uppercuts and CHOPS! Corbin DECKS Jimmy then covers, ONE! Jimmy get sup but Corbin whips. Jimmy sunset flips but Corbin throws hands. Corbin misses and Jey tags in. The Usos corner and clobber Corbin then Jey whips. Roode tags in and Corbin reverses. Roode dumps Jey out and then gives him a SPINE BUSTER! Corbin protests Roman coming by but the ref works to restore order. Roode drags Jey up to throw into the timekeeper’s area! Ziggler keeps jawing at Jimmy while the dog food bubbles in the bowl. SmackDown goes to break as Roode fetches Jey.

SmackDown returns once again and Roode drops knees on Jey. Cover, TWO! Roode rams knees into Jey’s back as he pulls on the arms. Ziggler taunts Jey but fans rally up. Jey fights his way up but Roode waistlocks. Jey elbows back, then throws uppercuts! And more uppercuts! Roode kicks low then sucker punches Jimmy! Roman protests but the ref keeps him back. Roode turns around to block Jey’s kick, only to get the dragon whip enziguri! Both men are down and fans are rallying! Roode and Jey crawl, hot tag to Ziggler! Ziggler leaps but only gets buckles as Jey dodges! Jey crawls over to his corner, but Ziggler heads for his. Hot tag to Corbin and he hits Roman first! Corbin then rams Jey into the post! Roll up, TWO!

Corbin grows frustrated, but he vows to make Jey eat the dog food! “Look at it!” Jey hits back from the corner! Jey boots Corbin, elbows the jesters, and tags in Roman! Corbin freaks out as Roman rallies! Fans are fired up as Roman whips but Corbin reverses. Leaping lariat! Roman puts Corbin in a corner for point-blank clotheslines! He goes all the way to 10, then runs to BOOT Corbin down! Fans stay hot as Roman locks ‘n’ loads! But Ziggler runs in, so Roman uppercuts! Corbin slides out, then in but Roman dodges, only to get caught! CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! The Big Dog survives and the Wolf King is furious! Corbin hits Jimmy down then goes out to throw him into steel steps! Corbin looks at the dog food buffet before going back to the ring. Roman ROCKS him with uppercuts!

Roode runs in to distract, Corbin rakes Roman’s eyes. SUPERKICK from Ziggler! Whip and DEEP SIX! Cover, TWO!! Tulsa is thunderous for Roman while the King and his court are beside themselves! Corbin crawls but Jimmy gets in to DIVE! Direct hit sends Roode over the desk! Corbin doesn’t get his scepter, but he gets the SUPERMAN PUNCH! Cover, but Ziggler breaks it! SUPERKICK for Ziggler an dJey fires up. Jey runs to DIVE onto the Show-Off! Roode-Dolph ends up behind the desk as Roman lets out the battle cry. Corbin blocks the Spear but Roman rolls him up! Roman and the Usos win!!

Winners: Roman Reigns & The Usos, Reigns pinning

And guess what that means?! A feast fit for a king’s… MUTT! The King tries to run but the Usos keep him in with a SUPERKICK! The Usos cuff the king! Roode-Dolph is stuck under the announce desk and the Usos put Corbin on lockdown! He resists but can’t get free, Roman SPEARS Corbin down! “Oh yes, sir!” Roman and the Usos drag Corbin over to the corner and hook him up like Corbin once did Roman! The Usos fetch the dog food, wheeling the entire tray over. Corbin kicks at it but it stays upright. First is the appetizer, and Roman flicks the spoon at Corbin. Then the main course is an entire BUCKET!! Corbin is drenched in the meat but the Bloodline adds on a second helping! Roman and the Usos pose with Corbin, and make sure he’s evenly coated. Will this finally be the end of this feud?

 


 

My Thoughts:

First, I should address the news that those of us here at The Chairshot are joining up with eWrestlingNews. As such, tonight’s SmackDown article and subsequent 205 Live article might be the last ones I do here on this site. I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say it’s been a great run, but the move is just the beginning of bigger and better. As such, this was a pretty good episode to go out on, though not quite what I expected for a post-PPV episode.

Turns out that the Dog Food match was real, but I’m glad it was used here as part of a big Six Man Tag main event and not a PPV anything. The match itself was really good, but of course the Faces stand tall and get to dump all that mess on Corbin’s head. Here’s hoping this really is the end of the feud and Roman can move on to what I assume is the Universal Championship. The Usos are likely to wait until after Super Showdown to go after the SmackDown Tag Team Championships again, and by then I’m thinking Miz & Morrison get them. The Fatal 4 Way to determine #1 contenders was a lot of fun, but it was a foregone conclusion who was winning. New Day VS Miz-Morrison is going to be a great match, and next week’s return of the Dirt Sheet talk show is going to be a lot of fun.

I love that I was right about Valentine’s Friday Night SmackDown being a major plot point for Otis and Mandy. I’m rooting for Otis. I’m betting any number of awful things happen that Otis is afraid will lose him the girl, only for Mandy to be sweeter than her usual character has been, and forgive Otis. Bliss-Cross thereby winning the tag match tonight was a good move, then. Kabuki Warriors are Heels, Bliss-Cross are Face, tale as old as time in wrestling it seems. And I’m very surprised and impressed that WWE let Strowman win the Intercontinental Championship. Sami protesting and Cesaro losing a brawl with Elias makes me think the IC title is what gets an Elimination Chamber match at the Elimination Chamber PPV. Or we could have two, where both micard titles are on the line.

SmackDown makes a great move bringing Naomi out as Bayley’s potential opponent for the title. That is a fresh match up that will be a lot of fun, but I’m already sensing Sasha Banks keeps Naomi from winning. Gable VS Sheamus wasn’t really necessary but it was a decent match. I really liked Daniel Bryan’s promo about those whip marks and not being able to show his daughter what they looked like. It remains to be seen if Bryan is going to be changed by The Fiend like all the others, but I’m sure Bryan is going to come back for another prize, like the Intercontinental Championship. Again, Chamber is up next, he might take this love that borders on self-endangerment to a new level in that match as his way of being changed.

My Score: 8.2/10

Seth Rollins is backstage.

“Welcome, everybody, to Monday Night Rollins. Where last week, Kevin Owens connived his way into MY title match at WWE Day 1. But tonight, oh tonight! Kevin Owens, in just a few moments actually, finds himself going one on one with WWE Champion, Big E, inside the steel cage! Hahaha! A match where they will rip each other apart in, and I will enjoy every single second. And at Day 1, we will usher in a new year. We will usher in a new era with a NEW champion when I beat both Big E and Kevin Owens and reclaim my rightful place as WWE Champion! Hahahaha! Enjoy the show.”

 

Big E speaks.

“Man, I’ve been through hell and back to get my WWE Championship. And tonight is no different. Kevin Owens, it may be you and me and Seth Rollins at WWE Day 1 for my WWE Championship, but tonight, we’re locked inside a steel cage! And boy, there is no easy way out! There is no shortcut home! But not only am I going to beat you, Kevin, I’m gonna punish you. Oh, you got to feel that, SUCKA!”

 

Kevin Owens speaks.

“Big E’s been calling me a liar for weeks, months really. But he’s the liar. Because earlier he said it was his WWE Championship.” It’s KEVIN’s championship! Big E is just holding it for Kevin until Day 1. That means there’s 26 days left until Kevin takes the title and the fans can rejoice. Big E wants to punish Kevin but Kevin will be the one to punish him. And that is no lie.

Big E may have stood tall just before the break, but what we didn’t see during the break was that BOBBY LASHLEY just appeared and wrecked all three of them! Big E, Kevin Owens AND Seth Rollins got dominated by the Rocky Mountain Machine! Will Lashley be waiting on the Monday after Day 1 to take the title from the Triple Threat winner?

 

Zelina Vega w/ Carmella VS Nikki A.S.H. w/ Rhea Ripley!

“Hear ye, hear ye,” the Queen of the Ring says. “How lucky are all of you that the Queen and the Women’s Tag Team Champions decided to grace you with our presence tonight? Uh, the queen is talking. The queen is talking! Would you rather be cheering for that loser, Almost a Superhero, Nikki A.S.H?” Zelina feels sorry for Nikki, but not as much as when she’ll beat Nikki tonight and send her into the pit of despair. AKA, Memphis! But Zelina stops gloating as Nikki & Rhea make their way out! Will the Almost Super Hero humble the Queen of Raw?

RKBRO meet backstage.

Matt Riddle is in his ring commentator best. He got one for Orton, where is it? Don’t start. But Riddle was watching this movie and- Kevin Patrick walks in to ask them about tonight’s Raw Tag Team Championship tournament? No, no, it’s the RKBRO-nament. They put their favorite holiday movies in a tournament style bracket to debate which is the best, and that gave them the idea for this tournament tonight to determine their next #1 contenders. Adam Pearce & Sonya Deville both loved the idea and- Randy says none of that happened. That is all Riddle’s idea. All Orton said was that if they had to defend their tag titles, that is all they would focus on. And then Riddle replied about how Home Alone changed his life.

Bro, he shared that in confidence…! But on a more important not, RKBRO will be special guest hosts and correspondents, doing all the interviews courtesy of RKBRO. Orton never agreed to that, either. Riddle loves his sarcasm. And so… here’s your blazer! There is no way in hell Orton is wearing that. But Orton will look so good in it! And the fans want it. Plus the voices in Riddle’s head are telling him to slap the blazer on. Is that so? He wants Orton to wear the blazer? And Memphis wants to see it? Yes, they need it! FINE! Orton puts on the blazer! RKBRO head out, who will win this very professional Raw Tag Team Championship Contenders Tournament?

 

Rhea tries to talk to Nikki backstage.

She wants her not to worry, they’ll get it next time. But then a fan comes by and says she’s their biggest fan. Nikki would love to! Sorry, she was talking to Jerry the King Lawler. Jerry doesn’t mind. And sorry about that loss, kid. Want an autograph? Nikki sulks away and Jerry shrugs. What will it take for the Almost Super Hero to cheer up?

 

Tag Team RKBRO-nament: The Street Profits VS AJ Styles & Omos!

Raw returns and the Phenomenal Styles and the colossal Omos make their entrance. RKBRO are on commentary, or at least Riddle will be, just as Riddle said. The Profits then make their entrance, and fans fire up for the red Solo cups raining down! The teams sort out, Styles starts with Montez Ford and Styles fires right off! Styles CHOPS, whips, but Ford reverses to dropkick Styles down! Ford brings Styles up, wrenches the arm, whips him into the corner, then tags Dawkins. The Profits double whip, Dawkins dropkicks Styles down! Then they coordinate, BACK SUPLEX SPLASH, to Dawkins’ RUNNING SPLASH! Cover, TWO!

Angelo Dawkins brings Styles up, Styles RAMS him into the corner! Styles digs his shoulder in, the ref counts and Styles lets off. Dawkins dodges to ROCK Styles, whip him corner to corner, CYCLONE SPLASH! Dawkins runs but Omos holds the ropes down! Dawkins tumbles out and Omos shrugs. Riddle says that is not in the spirit of the RKBRO-nament! But Styles DECKS Ford, then SLINGSHOT FOREARMS Dawkins! Styles has control as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Omos is in! He drags Dawkins up, whips him hard into a corner, and Dawkins falls to the mat. Omos drags Dawkins back up, scoops him and then SLAMS him! Omos stares Ford down, then he brings Dawkins back up to CLUB him down. Omos drags Dawkins up, Dawkins throws body shots but Omos knees him low. Omos CLUBS Dawkins, looms over him, but Dawkins hits a JAWBREAKER! Omos checks his teeth as he staggers back, but he CLOBBERS Dawkins down! Omos scowls, drags Dawkins back up, then tags Styles in. Omos holds Dawkins in place for Styles to stomp. Styles brings Dawkins up but Dawkins fires forearms!

Styles KICKS the leg but Dawkins throws more forearms! Styles throat chops, runs but only gets buckles! Hot tag to Ford! Ford rallies on Styles, brings him up but Styles blocks the suplex, so Ford rolls him up! TWO, and Ford mule kicks then front kicks then ENZIGURIS! Ford fires up, taunts Omos, runs in but Styles BOOTS him! Styles runs in but Ford dodges to then LEAPING LARIAT! Ford takes off the glove, and he BACK HAND SLAPS Omos! Omos is furious! Ford screams but Dawkins ROCKS Omos! DOUBLE DROPKCIKS sends Omos off the apron! Styles PELES Dawkins, slides under Ford, but Ford fights the lift to switch the waistlock!

Styles lands out of the back suplex to ENZIGURI, and PELE! Then Styles suplexes, BRAINBUSTER!! But Styles won’t cover, he goes to the apron! Styles aims, but Omos gets up to tag himself in! Styles is surprised by that, but Dawkins drags Styles out to ROCK him! Omos runs over to RUN OVER Dawkins! Ford PLANCHAS, but Omos catches him! APRON POWERSLAM! Omos throws Dawkins into barriers but the ring count! Omos didn’t hear it in time, he gets counted out!! The Profits win!!

Winners: The Street Profits, by count-out (advance to the second round)

Riddle says that is an upset! But he admits, he’s relieved he doesn’t have to worry about Omos. Styles tells Omos he has to listen, to do what he’s told. But Omos just leaves Styles behind! Is this the end of their phenomenal partnership? Riddle gets in the ring to say breaking news! Riddle is “Howard Brocell” and he asks for a comment on this crazy event. AJ, a word? What? Is Riddle talking to him? Yes! Styles tells Riddle to go interview the winners. Well, AJ, Riddle’s integrity tells him to follow the biggest story, and the Profits got out way too fast. But things got juicy there between Styles and Omos. Would he like to explain what’s going on?

What is this? Dateline? Kinda. Styles says that was a disagreement between a great tag team, that’s all. Not that Riddle would know anything about that. Now get the mic out of Styles’ face or he’ll shove it down your throat! Styles storms off, Riddle says this was an explosive start to the RKBRO-nament. It’s anyone’s game! Except for Styles & Omos. They’re out. Would Randy like to add anything? Fans cheer and Orton gets a mic to say, “Nope.” Always beautiful insight from Randy. But dude, things are just heating up for the tag team tournament, brought to you by the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment, R K BRO. “Back to you, Jimbo Slice.”

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

The Raw Women’s Champion has a big match with Liv Morgan> yes, a big, big night. For Liv. The biggest night of Liv’s career, going in with a lot of momentum. Liv won her match last week, hit her finisher afterward. The week before that, sucker punched Becky as hard as she could, and the week before that, countered the Manhandle Slam. The Liv Morgan bandwagon is big and the train is rolling. But the real battle isn’t in the ring with Becky, no. It’ll be in the mind and in the heart, and out in the crowd where fans want to tear her apart. No one really wants Liv to win. You do well enough, they cheer. You do too well, they turn on you.

Liv is in the perfect position as the underdog who will never join the stars. Becky is the biggest star there is! So it’s just another Monday for your champion, Big Time Becks. Will Becky prove herself right through and through when she takes on Liv later tonight?

 

RKBRO talks backstage.

Riddle says that was the coolest! When Orton said, “Nope,” the fans went insane! But Riddle says Orton left some money on the table. They gotta bring the fans on a roller coaster ride, dude! Is that right? A little bit. Orton says his broadcasting career is over. For now, at least. Have fun, it’s all on you, now. Thanks, Randy! Riddle vows not to let him down!

Austin Theory visits Vince McMahon’s office again.

They sit down and Theory is a bit wary given last time, Vince slapped him. Theory’s been doing good? Yeah, good. Vince reminds Theory that asking about how someone doing is fake. Now time to learn something this week. Theory will be in a match tonight. Really? Okay! Wait, did Vince expect him to do that? Was he surprised? Yeah, definitely. Oh. Well then he didn’t really learn from last week. Will Theory learn much of anything with the cryptic ways Mr. McMahon is teaching him? Or is it just Theory who’s out of touch?

 

MizTV returns!

The Miz struts his way out to the ring, and he’s inviting the Rated R Superstar to be his first guest! Will Edge give the Hollywood A-Lister the satisfaction? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Miz welcomes us back to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, and he knows what we’re thinking. They want to know where his beautiful, gorgeous, sexy wife is, but Maryse doesn’t go to places like Memphis, Tennessee. Have you seem yourselves lately? She’s not coming here. But Miz rewatched his confrontation with Edge from last week, and he couldn’t believe his eyes. It was unbelievable. Edge complimented him! A heartfelt compliment from Edge! Miz has known Edge for 15 years, it doesn’t sound like him. He’s a shell of his former self! Or is he? We’ll find out. Miz introduces the Rated R Superstar, the music hits, and Edge appears!

Edge has the fans fired up and he heads down the ramp and even Miz fires up for the pyro. Edge gets in the ring, Miz takes a seat but Edge just takes the mic. Edge decides to sit after all and sees Miz is confused. Edge says he meant those compliments, and he still means them this week. Aww, how sweet. But Miz can’t help but think that the Rated R Superstar has lost his edge. Wow, a clever pun, Mike. But the ultimate opportunist, the master manipulator would’ve just speared Miz out of his $9000 shoes. And honestly, this Edge is definitely physical in the ring, but Miz can’t help but think that mentally, Edge is weak.

First off, $9000 for ugly ass shoes? Edge’s Jordan 3’s are way cooler. And don’t mistake kindness for weakness. Whatever is going on here, Miz has bigger issues than Edge. Miz says Edge doesn’t need his kindness. When he needed that was in 2006 when Miz started in the WWE. Miz walking on eggshells, everything he said and did was wrong, and how he got kicked out of the locker room! But they both know Miz wasn’t kicked out for eating chicken, he was kicked in because he didn’t fit the mold. He was an outcast, he was ostracized for having “it,” but everyone else wanted to protect their spot.

So instead of protecting the kid who came off the hit show, MTV’s The Real World, he was treated like a peasant when he was already more famous than 90% of the locker room! Miz doesn’t need Edge’s kindness, nor does he want it. So then Miz is painting Edge with “that brush?” Glossing over some key points here. It was in this arena where Edge pulled Miz aside, told him he has “it,” and that he could endure the BS. Oh wow~. Well does Miz remember what he did after that? He brushed Edge off! Or did Miz forget? Edge went through the same things seven years before that! And if someone had pulled him aside, Edge damn sure would’ve listened.

The biggest difference between Edge and Miz, is that Edge didn’t walk into the locker room and already think he was a bigger star than everyone else. And Edge isn’t afraid of losing the spot. When he sees a new face, he sees a new opportunity and a new opponent. He never puts anyone down. But Miz wants to blame everyone else? Here’s what he should do: At the end of the day, Miz should look himself in the mirror, and that mirror will tell him what it would’ve in 2006. “Miz, you’re an ass!” Miz gets up and so does Edge. Miz seems to think things over, and then he chuckles. “And you’re a hypocrite, and you’re vulnerable, and I’ve surpassed you in and out of the ring.”

2022 will be the Year of Miz, and Miz can’t think of a better way to usher it in than beating Edge on January 1st! Well if that’s a challenge, Edge accepts! But Edge is right here, they’re in Memphis, and there’s nothing between them but air and opportunity. What’s Miz say to that? Fans fire up, but Miz says, “No.” But here’s why. Edge thinks Miz is afraid? He’s- Edge steps and Miz falls over! “Not afraid?” Edge chuckles and leaves. Will the Rated R Superstar make this A-Lister feel like just an extra on WWE Day 1?

 

Backstage interview with Liv Morgan.

Sarah brings up Becky’s strong words, how does Liv respond? Liv heard that, and Becky isn’t wrong. Liv did all of that, and Becky is right, people are watching. That scares Becky, because what she got wrong is that fans are watching to see Liv win. They believe there is a chance that things won’t go Becky’s way. Becky’s used to getting what she wants, but Liv will do everything in her power to get what she wants: that Raw Women’s Championship! Liv is ready, but will her moment finally arrive?

 

Tag Team RKBRO-nament: Rey & Dominik Mysterio VS The Alpha Academy!

La Familia has had their run-ins with Chad Gable & Otis Dozovic before, but now there’s a title opportunity on the line! Will Rey & Dom get a step closer to becoming the first-ever two-time father-son tag team champions? Or will Gable & Otis win this one #ForTheAcademy?

Raw returns and Riddle is back on commentary! The Alpha Academy make their entrance, the teams sort out and Dom starts against Gable. They circle, they tie up, Gable trips Dom and knuckle lock covers, ONE! Dom gets up, goes shoulder to shoulder with Gable but then breaks to fire off forearms. Dom goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Then another arm-drag for a cording hold! Gable whips Dom away from Rey, and Gable says, “Don’t go running to daddy!” Gable then SLAPS Dom! Dom runs in, Gable slips around to BUTTERFLY SUPELX! Bridging cover, ONE, but Gable wrenches, only for Dom to whip Gable and SLAP him back!

Gable can’t believe it but fans fire up! Gable waistlocks, Dom throws him out of the ring! Gable gets back in, Dom dropkicks him down! Dom brings Gable away, but Gable reels him in for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Otis talks trash, Gable crawls over to Dom, but Dom grabs his leg! Gable stomps Dom then YANKS the leg! Gable stares Rey down, goes back to Dom, but Dom throws forearms, Gable shoves, Dom runs but into a rolling HALF CRAB! Dom endures, Riddle likes the seamless transition. Dom powers up, rolls Gable to a cradle, TWO! Gable blocks a kick but not the ENZIGURI! Gable staggers, Dom trips him up! Dom brings Gable away from Otis, but Gable CLUBS him!

Gable brings Dom up, Dom counter punches! Dom fire so haymakers, whips, but Gable reverses. Gable runs in but blocks the boot to put it in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Gable goes up top, MOONSAULT, but Dom turns it into a roll-up, the Mysterios win?!!

Winners: Rey & Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall (advance to the second round)

No one even tagged out in that match! Gable keeps Otis back, the loss is on him! Riddle gets back in the ring to interview the losers. The first ever RKBROnament, how do they feel- Otis scoops Riddle! Riddle shouts, “I’M A JOURNALIST!” but he still gets the POWERSLAM! Will Riddle learn when not to talk? Will the Mysterios get past the Profits to go after the tag titles?

 

Austin Theory warms up in Vince’s office.

While Vince was testing Theory, he was serious about making a match. Vince is on the phone but then ends the call. He has Theory take a seat and says unfortunately, because Theory wasn’t ready to start, no match tonight. But last time he had a match was the WWE title against Big E. Yes, and it was impressive. But Theory is not having a match tonight. So find another way to impress him. Uh, okay. Theory unzips to show off his abs while doing jumping jacks. #AllDay, Mr. McMahon! All day. No, please stop. Vince says to find another way. Use your brains! Right, okay. Theory has an idea and heads out. Vince is ready to see what Theory comes up with.

 

Finn Balor VS T-Bar!

The Prince is ready to make Memphis part of the Balor Club, but the towering T-Bar is ready to destroy everyone! Will Balor avoid that destruction to make tonight Too Sweet?

Raw returns and T-Bar is in the ring. The bell rings, T-Bar and Finn tie up. Finn gets the arm but T-Bar CLUBS him with the other. Finn KICKS a leg, T-Bar choke grips. Finn headlocks, T-Bar powers out, Finn ducks and dodges then leaps, but into T-Bar’s arms! T-Bar KNEES then TOSSES Finn, covers, TWO! T-Bar rains down fists, drags Finn up and bumps him off buckles. T-Bar stomps, ROCKS Finn then digs his boot in! The ref counts, T-Bar lets off at 4, and he gives Finn a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! T-Bar clamps on with a chinlock!

Oh, and a selfie, too! Will Theory score points with Vince along with the likes? Or will Finn show Theory to never cheap shot the Prince?

 

Dana Brooke sneaks around backstage.

The WWE 24/7 Champion has to be careful at all times, of course. But then R-Truth AND Akira Tozawa jump out and surprise her! They could’ve gotten her right here, but Truth doesn’t even know if that’s PG. They’ll have to read up on the rules. Take care, Brooke. But wait! Here comes Reggie like an American Ninja Warrior! But he tells Dana not to worry. He just wanted to finish that conversation from last week. He was impressed by that move she pulled on Cedric. And that title looks nice on her. But Tamina comes storming in! Reggie helps delay her so Dana can get away. Will Reggie win something other than the title from Dana Brooke with that assist?

 

MVP and Bobby Lashley head out backstage.

Time to paint the town red. But Kevin Patrick asks as to why Lashley attacked Big E, Rollins and Kevin Owens. MVP says KP knows how this works. “We live in an area where people have become way too comfortable disrespecting other people, because there are no consequences for those actions. Not so in the All Mighty Era.” Those three had the audacity to have a WWE Championship match without even mentioning Lashley’s name. That was disrespectful, and that attack was the consequence. “When you disrespect me, Kevin, that’s what happens.” MVP adjusts KP’s tie, and the Hurt Business heads out. Is this all further setting up the Rocky Mountain Machine on the other side of Day 1?

 

WWE takes a closer look at Liv Morgan.

The youngest of six children to a single mother who worked 60 hours a week. Most times, they were above water. But there were times where things didn’t work. A confused kid who couldn’t find her way in life. But Liv loved the WWE her whole life. With a dream in her head she couldn’t express, that only she could understand, now she knows who she is. From NXT to SmackDown to Raw, from confused kid to confident woman who fights for her dreams. She won’t be pushed aside or shamed for feeling her feelings. She won’t be denied the moment she’s waited an entire life for. She knows who she is: the next Raw Women’s Champion.

 

Raw Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch VS Liv Morgan!

This could be the moment where it all comes falling down for The Man! Emphasis on could, as far as Becky is concerned. Will she overlook and underestimate Liv enough for Liv to finally live that championship life? Or is Liv still too small time for Big Time Becks?

AEW Elevation Coverage

A lucky seven for Elevation!

AEW keeps up the heat in Hotlanta with seven more sizzling hot matches! And hottest of all, Anthony Ogogo returns to action alongside The Factory!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: Dustin Rhodes, Lee Johnson & Brock Anderson VS The Wingmen; win.
  • Emi Sakura & The Bunny w/ Mei Suruga & Lulu Pencil VS Abadon & Ryo Mizunami; win.
  • Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Julia Hart VS Serpentico w/ Luther; wins.
  • The Acclaimed VS Shawn Dean & Carlie Bravo; win.
  • Jurassic Express VS The Tate Twins; win(s).
  • Riho VS Angelica Risk; wins.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Factory VS Baron Black, Shawn Hoodrich, Tony Vincinta & JD Munoz; win(s).

QUICK NOTES

Great to see The Wingmen’s Peter Avalon, JD Drake and Cezar Bononi back in action together. Abadon and Mizunami make for a rather interesting combo. And great to know that Anthony Ogogo is back so that The Factory is back to 100%. Maybe those guys can get into feuds not having to do with Cody Rhodes.
