But just so everyone’s on the same page, Ms. Charly, Angel Garza ain’t the only Lothario on Raw. Dawkins shooting his shot, but WrestleMania means the Profits are up! Wait, fam. Remix it! Right, because it’s WrestleMania! So instead… take a sip… WrestleMania is UP, and #WeWantTheSmoke. Will WrestleMania Weekend bring the swag to close it out?

 

Preshow Match – Natalya VS Liv Morgan!

Now that The Man has beaten the Queen of Spades, the door is open to a new challenger! Will the Queen of Harts or the LIVing Embodiment take a crucial step forward tonight?

The bell rings and Natty circles with Liv. Liv offers a handshake and Natty takes it. To drag Liv into a headlock and takeover! Liv rolls to a cover, ONE and Natty grinds Liv down. Liv headscissors but Natty pops free. The two go again, and Natty gets a wrench to a wristlock to a headlock to a hammerlock. Natty rolls Liv back, ONE and the two stand off. Natty applauds Liv for keeping up with her technical ability. The two circle again and Liv says Natty will regret grinning. They tie up but neither gets control so they separate. Now Natty offers a handshake but Liv swats it away. Natty kicks but Liv catches it, only for Natty to roll and use it to bring Liv down. Liv fights out of the toehold to get a headlock.

Natty pops out to get a waistlock, but Liv reaches down to trip her up. Natty kicks Liv away but Liv goes Matrix to dodge the clothesline! Liv rolls Natty up, TWO! Liv kicks Natty low then whips her to a corner. She tells Natty to “kiss this” before hitting a back elbow in the corner. Liv whips Natty the other way then runs in, but misses!

Dolph Ziggler tries calling Mandy Rose.

After the reveal on this past Friday Night SmackDown, Mandy hasn’t talked to him or Sonya Deville. He doesn’t want her to throw away what they have over a “misunderstanding.” Sonya checks with Dolph, but they can’t get through to her. And even if Mandy reaches out to them, what do they say? Maybe that they were thinking of her best interests? Kayla Braxton comes by and asks them about their plot being revealed. Is this some kind of ambush? WWE is better than this! No comment!

 

The WWE Backstage hosts join the Preshow, again!

But this time, Booker T and Renee Young are joined by Christian! Captain Charisma is GOODT in his turtleneck, and is of course here to talk Randy Orton and Edge. Christian knows Edge very well and says that the thing going for Edge right now is confidence. Orton is oddly to thank for that. Edge survived Orton’s assault after the Royal Rumble, so Edge is emboldened to take the fight back to Orton. While The Viper really is the best, maybe of all time, Edge has “grit.” There is a fire inside Edge after what Orton did to him and Beth Phoenix, and it is now an inferno.

Edge has always had a chip on his shoulder, and has used that chip as motivation. That chip is going to motivate Edge even more now. But Orton is at his peak right now, and Booker says Edge’s ring rust could be the real enemy. Christian is talking from his heart, but Orton is the best today. Orton will bring a lot and will take a lot in this match. Who do you think will be the Last Man Standing tonight?

 

Stephanie McMahon welcomes us back to WrestleMania!

Yes, we’re on the second night of the WWE superstars performing in front of an empty arena, but with all the same energy as if we were all present. Please sit back and enjoy the finale of WrestleMania Weekend!

 

“A battle for the ages” is on the horizon.

Rise as one, or fall as… CUT! That’s starting at the end. You can’t start at the end. Where is the drama? The rising action? Story-telling 101. Back-up to… There! The raging ocean. “The darkest hour… is just before the dawn.” Movie narration, go! No, wait, that’s very cliche. Okay, yes, this is all cliche because it’s pirate theme with a pedestrian knockoff Jack Sparrow. But it’s also so much more. It’s a story of adventure, bravery, maybe even madness. Wait why are there horses and aliens? Give us the heroic montage! The epic effects! Mythical juxtapositions!

Our heroes, our icons, our legends are all here after hundreds of days and nights around the world. This is their quest for gold, glory and immortality! You may think you’ve heard this story before, but forget what you have learned. For fate has a funny way of surprising you. “Tonight, adventure awaits.” But history waits for no one! Both those things collide in one epic weekend! Who conquers the conquerors? Who raises the greatest treasures imaginable? And who stands tall on the Grandest Stage of Them All?

 

WWE Universe, Gronk is back!

The second night of a Mania too big for just one promises to make things even more hype! Gronk knows what Championship Sunday is all about, so let’s get to it!

Backstage interview with Sasha Banks and Bayley.

The Boss and the longest-reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion have had quite the year already. But Bayley is about to face her biggest challenge yet. Yes, Kayla, that’s one way to put it. Another way to put it is “unfair.” This is the most unfair championship match ever. This is a Fatal 5 Elimination Match! Bayley has to beat four other women in one night! Including best friend, Sasha Banks, which Bayley knew Kayla would say. All the sheep are talking about the friends and trying to drive a wedge. But Bayley tells us all that she and Sasha are united. There is nothing that will stand between them. That includes this interview, which is now over.

But as Bayley heads off, Kayla asks Sasha about her chance to be SmackDown Women’s Champion. How badly does Sasha actually want to win? Well, we’ll all just have to watch and see. Sasha smiles before leaving. Is she about to become WWE’s next Grand Slam Champion?

Orton sits up at 4 but gasps and coughs as the count continues. Orton is up at 7 but Edge glares as he spots something. Edge punches Orton onto a road case then drags him up over to a covered table. Edge punches and knees Orton further onto that table, then gets a sinister grin as he hobbles towards his real target. He clubs and clobbers Orton over and over in the chest to keep him down, then climbs a ladder! Edge has redefined how ladders are used, and ladders have helped define his career. Now Edge climbs the tallest ladder yet to then stand on a platform. Edge LEAPS and ELBOWS Orton through the table!! Both men are down as the count climbs up again! The count passes 5 as both men are slowly rising from the wreckage. They’re both up at 8!

Edge makes his way to Orton and throws more haymakers. Orton flounders about, a cut bleeding from his shoulder. Orton kicks Edge low then clubs him on his back. Edge crawls but Orton drags him up again. Orton drags Edge over but both men stumble and drop to knees. Orton grits his teeth to punch Edge and uppercut him towards a truck bed. He bounces Edge off the tailgate! And again! Edge falls and the count begins again. The count passes 5 once again, but Edge reaches up for the tailgate. Edge uses that to stand at 8, but Orton just bounces him off it again! And again! And again! Orton pushes Edge onto the tailgate then climbs up to join him. They go on top of the truck bed’s cover and then towards the cab.

Orton grins as he has Edge on the truck’s roof. Orton drags Edge around, for a DRAPING DDT!! They break the bed cover and the ref checks on both men! Somehow, both men aren’t completely out of it, but the count will still test what they have left. Orton sits up but both he and Edge writhe and crawl about. Both men stand at 6 and Edge scurries up a stack of road cases. Edge uses those to get to the roof of a truck trailer! Orton laughs as he sees Edge disappear over the top. Orton forces himself to stand and head after Edge. The ref also joins them up there, and Orton stands first. Orton goes as far back as he can on the trailer, and lines up a shot. Edge is on all fours as Orton runs at him, but Edge SPEARS!!

Orton might even be crying in pain now as he and Edge stir. The count passes 5, reaches 8, but Orton is up! Edge wobbles but runs back in, into an RKO!!! Both men are down again, but Orton sits up at 4. Orton hobbles up but Edge is still down. The count reaches 7, Edge flounders a bit, but stands at 9.5, only to fall again! Orton climbs down to rest on the truck’s tailgate. Orton sees what is perhaps the world’s tallest ladder but opts to bring chairs over to the truck trailer. Edge is battling the count as Orton returns. Edge is up at 8 but Orton gives him a SMACK on the back! That chair shot might’ve just broken Edge!

But Orton won’t let it end with that. Orton has a chair under Edge’s head…! He tells Edge this will be over soon, and Edge can go back to his wife daughters. Orton hobbles as he brings up the other chair. The ref says Orton doesn’t have to do this, but Orton raises the chair. Edge catches Orton in an arm-triangle!! Edge squeezes tight and Orton fades! Orton might be out as Edge rests his head on a chair. Edge has the other chair now, and he tells the ref to stop the count. The count was at 5 but Edge wants to end this his way.

Edge hesitates, though, remembering the years he and Orton were as close as brothers. Edge is almost in tears as he brings up the chair over Orton’s head! Con-CHAIR-To!!! The count begins again, and Edge is speechless as he stands over a gasping Orton. The count hits ten, Edge wins!

Winner: Edge

The Rated R Superstar won, but he isn’t celebrating. Edge kneels by a man who was once a friend. Will Orton ever recover from what he and Edge put each other through? Will Edge be able to continue his comeback after what he did?

Firefly Fun House Match: The Fiend VS John Cena!

This story goes back six years, to WrestleMania 30. Bray Wyatt blames John Cena for his descent into madness. Cena says he is going to expose Wyatt as the over-hyped, over-privileged and overestimated embarrassment he is to the WWE. But when Cena steps into Wyatt’s world, will he be able to get out alive? Or will he #LetHimIn?

Cena makes his entrance, but just as he’s about to welcome us to WrestleMania, something happens… Old footage from the past plays, the reel stops and… The Firefly Fun House interrupts. Bray waves and smiles before saying, “There’s another world that exists beyond our comprehension.” This world is where our “darkest urges are no longer kept secret.” It is a world were gods, monsters, demons and angels are your neighbors! “Who are we? And why do we do the things that we do?” Cena, let’s take a real deep look at who you really are! Cena is going to face his most dangerous opponent yet: HIMSELF! Welcome to the Firefly Fun House match! “Abandon all hope, ye who EXIT here.” Bray steps out, and Cena is just… there.

Cena looks around and sees Abby the Witch just staring. Ramblin’ Rabbit pops up and says sup! If he’s looking for Bray, he went through that door. Go on, bro! But be careful~! Cena opens the door, and steps inside the darkness. And this isn’t your everyday darkness. This is… advanced darkness. Cena isn’t sure if there’s anything in here. But then he look sover… and sees Vince Puppet! Does Cena have the ruthless aggression needed to succeed? Show Vince or you’re… FIRED! Cena gets the joke, but moves on. Bray stands in a ring as flashes of the past intermingle with the present. Bray word-for-word copies the open challenge speech Kurt Angle gave that day over a decade ago. The one to answer the open challenge… is John Cena in his Prototype gear!

Cena heads into the ring and gets in Bray’s face, just like he did with Angle. What makes him think he can hang with Bray? RUTHLESS, AGGRESSION! Except Bray ducks the punch. Wow, this worked? And it’s pretty embarrassing. RUTHLESS AGGRESSION! Bray again dodges the haymaker. Bray explains that he’s reliving Cena’s greatest failure. And boy, it sure is embarrassing. Bray sees how Cena almost got fired. RUTHLESS AGGRESSION! You can look but you can’t touch. Hmm, wasn’t that also embarrassing? But Cena is a broken record. Is this what Cena really wants to do with his life? Cena rushes Brya but Bray dodges, and the chase is on! Mercy is the Macho Buzzard and this is Saturday Night’s Main Event! But, it’s Sunday…

Either way, Bray Wyatt says his tag team partner is a physical specimen! It doesn’t matter what little talent you have, it’s about the strength and the size! Johnny LargeMeat has both! Ladies love him, men want to be him, and here he comes! Cena flexes and quotes Randy Savage sayings. You’ll pay for the whole seat but only need the edge! Look at the pythons! Cena pumps and pumps and pumps and pumps! Abby is definitely impressed. Cena overdoes it and now his arms don’t work. He can’t punch Wyatt and Vince Puppet is upset. But what’s Cena gonna do when he realizes that Egomania has been running wild on you?! Bray pushes Cena into his next phase, the Dr. of Thuganomics! #WordLife lives again and returns to the ring.

Cena says he just switches like that in mid-fight? The audience is excited, they went from six to midnight. Oh wait, he can only talk in rhyme, right? Well Bray ain’t taking the limelight. Cena uses rapping to his advantage, and just like Husky Harris, he has weight he can manage. But here’s an idea for the puppet show! Put Cena’s junk in a sock, call it Mr. Suck It, Bro. Bray has been a disappointment since WWE brought him to the dance. He a ho for opportunity, and blows every chance. Ouch. Chances, huh? How dare Cena talk to Bray about chances. Bray has had to earn everything in life, and yet it is still taken from him! But John Cena, he’s the golden goose! Cena’s chances were unlimited, he was untouchable!

But he wasn’t a hero, he was a bully. Cena is a horrible person who takes the weaknesses of others and turns them into jokes. He does anything for fame. So congratulations, he’s the man! “Poor, lonely John Cena.” This is Cena’s last chance. The floor is his. What will he do with it? Cena just gets angry. You in the doctor’s house, getting up in his face? Bray only gets deez nuts up in ya face. Cena runs but Bray teleports away. Bray has a chain for a knuckle duster and he DECKS Cena! Cena is out cold, but the “fun” doesn’t end. Bray is back to being the New Face of Fear. “I was the color red in a world full of black and white. I had the whole world in my hands.” Abigail spoke of this day his entire life. Cena was to be a man of the people.

So why wasn’t he listening?! The fans were with Bray! They wanted Bray! They NEEDED Bray! It was to be a prophecy fulfilled! And yet, it became Bray’s grandest failure. Bray can’t remember what it’s like to feel. But now he rewrites the story. THAT Bray tells Cena to run. Bray corner splashes and dances with Hustle, Loyalty & Respect Cena. Before giving him a kiss, and throwing him away. But this won’t end it, will it? The chair is. Six years ago, Cena made the wrong choice. Fix it now. Cena swings the chair, but Bray is gone again. Wait, now we’re going to WCW Nitro? Bray Bischoff says what he really, REALLY wants to do right now is introduce the coolest guy that ever walked the face of the earth… HOLLYWOOD JOHN CENA!!

Cena is nWo for life and rocking out on the world championship. Vince Puppet says “this is such good s*it!” Too sweet, brother! But Cena SPEARS Bray! And rains down hands! The puppets beg for mercy! Even Mercy! Cena’s rage is being taken out on… Huskis?! And THE FIEND is there. Cena stands, turns around, and gets the MANDIBLE CLAW!! The Fiend smothers Cena, and his words ring in his own ears. The over-hyped, over-valued and over-privileged superstar ends. Because The Fiend hits SISTER ABIGAIL! Mandible claw cover and Bray counts! The Fiend WINS!

Winner: The Fiend, by pinfall

And Cena disappears. Cena may have been talking about himself all along. “LET ME IN!”

Interim host Titus O’Neil is speechless. Has the WWE just lost John Cena forever?

 

WWE World Championship: Brock Lesnar VS Drew McIntyre!

The Royal Rumble was an incredible showcase of two incredible specimens. But while Paul Heyman admits McIntyre is special, the Beast is a beast for a reason. Will Claymore Country’s leader be the one to #SlayTheBeast once and for all?

The introductions are made, with Heyman oddly NOT insisting to give one himself. The belt is raised, the tension mounts, and this battle to prove McIntyre’s worth finally begins!

Lesnar kicks and clubs and rams McIntyre into a corner! He whips but McIntyre reverses, to CLAYMORE!! Cover, TWO!! Lesnar survives one but McIntyre keeps his eyes on him. McIntyre aims again and Heyman warns Lesnar. Lesnsar gets clear, to GERMAN SUPLEX McIntyre! Lesnar wants another, McIntyre holds onto the ropes, but Lesnar breaks his grip! GERMAN SUPLEX! Lesnar stalks up behind McIntyre and CLUBS him down! McIntyre grits his teeth but Lesnar clubs him more, to get the THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX! Heyman says he told McIntyre it’d be quick but VERY painful. Lesnar drags McIntyre up to the fireman’s carry, for the F5!! Cover, ONE?!?! McIntyre surprises Heyman and infuriates Lesnar! But Lesnar looms over McIntyre as McIntyre crawls for ropes.

Lesnar hauls McIntyre up, fireman’s carry and ANOTHER F5!! Cover, TWO!?! Lesnar has no idea what to make of this. Heyman tells Lesnar just to keep bringing the pain, and Lesnar even grins. Lesnar drags McIntyre up from the ropes, for another fireman’s carry, and a THIRD F5!! Cover, TWO!?!? HOW?!? McIntyre is impressing Heyman, but Heyman knows McIntyre can’t do this forever. Lesnar cools off and looms over McIntyre again. McIntyre crawls and Lesnar laughs. “All night long, dude.” Lesnar fireman’s carries but McIntyre slips out! TO CLAYMORE!! McIntyre dares Lesnar to stand, and hits a THIRD CLAYMORE! Heyman panics but McIntyre knows he needs another. Lesnar stands, McIntyre CLAYMORES AGAIN!! Cover, MCINTYRE WINS!!!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall (NEW WWE World CHampion)

Are we dreaming?! Is this still the Firefly Fun House? NO! It really has happened! McIntyre proves Heyman WRONG! McIntyre isn’t just another b*tch that tried, he’s the Scottish Stud that overcame the unstoppable! We have a NEW reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World! DRRREW! MCINTYYYYRE!

 


 

My Thoughts:

The first ever second night of a WrestleMania, and you know what? I really liked it! It’s basically on-par with night one, but with an ending I did NOT think they’d do. I thought that with the world being locked down the way it is, Vince would not want to use such a great moment on Empty Arena Mania. But in the end, Vince did the right thing and gave McIntyre the win!! I am most assuredly marking out right now. There is a valid point that it’s a shame there are no fans to freak out in a good way over this, but at least we got this moment at all. I love this and I hope McIntyre gets to hold onto this title for a long time.

Rhea VS Charlotte was a pretty good opener, but Charlotte is still booked strong as ever. She wins the NXT Women’s Championship to join Shayna in the very exclusive two-time club, and I’m thinking she’s part of an unofficial talent trade. Shayna and now Bianca Belair are on Raw, and Charlotte is back on NXT to help push the idea that it is the third brand, on par with Raw and SmackDown. Bianca’s appearance was exactly as I figured, and that is to go after Zelina Vega in this building feud. The Raw Tag Team Championship match was good but about as expected with Austin Theory still very new to the mix. I’m obviously expecting a Mixed Six or something for the feud. And as I assume Bianca and the Profits win, maybe Bianca can be the next Raw Women’s Championship challenger.

For a filler match that came outta nowhere, Aleister VS Lashley was good. From a story perspective, it actually works that Lana cost Lashley the match by being so demanding. I hope this leads to that kayfabe relationship breaking up. It honestly should have long before this point. And hopefully this means Aleister heads for the WWE United States Championship once Andrade is okay to compete. Otis VS Ziggler was a lot of fun, and Mandy turning Face was a great way to have this go. Mandy stands by Otis, the guy she was into before the interference, and we might even get a mixed tag feud now if Sonya is hanging out with Ziggler.

The WWE 24/7 Championship’s part in the night was pretty good, too. It clearly gave a lot of extra talent some quick airtime while also getting us to where we all knew this was going: Gronk as 24/7 Champion. I can’t wait to see where they go with that. The SmackDown Women’s Championship match was really good, even with Tamina’s early elimination being a bit predictable. I really thought this was going to be Sasha’s way to get the title but maybe Money in the Bank is the route WWE wants to use. And yes, if the commercials are to be believed, MITB is still happening in a month. Though, who knows if it stays that way with WWE having to change filming plans again. Maybe Raw and SmackDown end up only focusing on MITB qualifiers?

The Last Man Standing match was as brutal as it should’ve been. And it went all over the Performance Center, as it should have. And it ended as I’d hoped: with a ConChairTo. I’m sure Edge will have to do a part-time schedule, and the damage done in this match gives a logical reason why he’d need to rest for a few months. But I am wondering where he even goes from here. And lastly, the Firefly Fun House match. It wasn’t as much of an actual match, but it was still great stuff. I loved going through the different phases of Cena’s career, and even referencing the nWo for whatever reason. Well, that might be in reference to internet fans like myself wondering if Cena’s Heel turn would be Hollywood Hulk Hogan 2.0.

And I loved how Cena’s words were basically turned against him. Bray uses Cena’s words to say Cena has been the most over-hyped, over-valued and over-privileged star in the WWE. Cena just disappearing at the end definitely adds some intrigue to things. Will Cena ever return? Will he return as a puppet? I almost thought Cena was going to end up wearing The Fiend’s mask and Bray would be dressed as Cena for a weird role reversal of hero and villain, like what they were going for with the promos. But as I said a few weeks ago, everything bad Cena’s said about Bray has been reverse psychology. Cena put Bray over here and hopefully this means Bray is headed back towards the top. Maybe back to the title? Obviously it was meant to be Roman but now it’s Strowman, and I would love a Strowman-Bray feud for once.

My Score: 8.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Judgement Day is here!

Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley are in Washington D.C. and headed to the ring! And they’re feeling great after what they did to Rey & Dominik Mysterio just last week. They all get mics while fans boo, but Rhea says, “The Judgement Day… We run Monday Night Raw. And that’s been the harsh reality to the Mysterios week in and week out. I even proved to Dominik Mysterio that I really am his Papi, haha, as I destroyed his soul!” Finn says everyone loves the Mysterios! But do they even know why? No! But then to those fans, Finn has some sad news: The Mysterios will NOT be here tonight.

And why is that? Because just like Rhea said, poor little Dom had his soul crushed! And Rey was destroyed by Finn in the middle of the ring, 1-2-3, to further solidify Finn’s already legendary status in this business! But enough about last week, here’s what Priest will do to Edge next week. “What won’t I do to Edge next week? But let me ask you all a question: Do you not wanna see Edge confront the Judgement Day right now?” DC says yes! Do they wanna see the Rated R Superstar right now? Yes! Too bad! He ain’t here! HA! No, no. Edge is out in Toronto, doing his “duties” promoting this match. Edge’s first match in Toronto in over a decade!

Priest tells Edge the he heard everything Edge said. Priest doesn’t need the Judgement Day ringside. He doesn’t sweat Edge! He doesn’t need anyone to deal with Edge! That is where Priest puts the final nail in the coffin of Edge’s career! There will be no Finn, no Rhea, just Priest VS Edge, 1v1, man to man, no Judgement Day! And then Toronto will no longer be Edge’s hometown. It’ll be the place where Damian Priest sent Edge back into retirement! Oh, the fans don’t like that, huh? Bye-bye, Edge! And this time it won’t be about filming TV shows or crap movies. It’ll be Beth wheeling Edge around and feeding him through a tube for the rest of his life!

But then REY dropkicks Priest from behind! And throws hands on Finn! Finn shoves Rey but Rey RANAS him out! Then BLASTS Priest out! But then Rhea steps to him! Rhea dares Rey to hit her, but Rey keeps control. But then Finn gets in with a chair! Rey SHOTGUNS Finn first! And then JAMS Finn and SMACKS Finn with the chair! And then the same for Priest!

Backstage interview with (Austin) Theory!

The Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank is back after the… less than successful attempt to cash-in at SummerSlam. Uh, well, he still has the briefcase, doesn’t he? And he’s still the Youngest WWE United States Champion Ever, and the handpicked future of the business! He may have made some miscalculations, but he doesn’t make mistakes. He is tougher because of that, wiser because of that, and he’s more dangerous because of that. Next time he- Dolph Ziggler walks in to say, “The next time? Kid, I’ve been watching you. You got crushed out there. Brock, Roman, you name it! And I get it, I’ve been there, too.”

But there’s a difference between the two of them. See, the MITB contract was never handed to Ziggler. He earned it. That is why it mattered when he cashed in and became World Heavyweight Champion! Well, that’s interesting. Ziggler was Mr. MITB, he was a world champion. And that’s great, really. But he won’t be around when Theory cashes in, and because of that, Theory thinks Ziggler’s nothing more than “an over the hill, title having has-been.” But Theory suggests Ziggler keeps paying attention to Mr. All Day. Because when Theory cashes in successfully, he’ll just keep winning and winning and winning. And he won’t screw up like Ziggler did!

Oh, didn’t like that, huh? But then Ziggler PUNCHES Theory! They brawl, and end up hitting the cameraman! Will these two have to settle this thing in the ring?

Raw shares footage of the brawl during the break, and they ended up deep in the arena! Officials rushed in to stop this, but… Who’s arm is that slipping in through the door?

 

Backstage interview with The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa.

Sarah says after an amazing performance against Bobby Lashley, where he came so close to winning the United States Championship, where does Ciampa see himself going next? Ciampa says he did get really close. Unfortunately, there are no participation trophies here. Ciampa came to Raw to become a champion, so the next time he gets an opportunity, that is what he is going to do. The Miz says to be honest, the only reason Ciampa didn’t win is because Styles interfered! And how is Styles repaid? He’s given a US Championship match tonight! That’s collusion!

But Miz will reward Ciampa for his valiant effort with a token of appreciation. Miz made his own custom polaroid NFT necklace. He and Ciampa have a matching pair! This is awesome! “No, we are AWWWWWESOOOOME!” The Hollywood A-Lister and his Guardian Psycho now head to the ring. Will they start on the road to tag title opportunities together? Or will they end up a stepping stone for their opponents?

The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa VS Cedric Alexander & Mustafa Ali!

The teams sort out and Alexander starts against Ciampa. They tie up, go around, and Ciampa pulls Alexander’s hair to put him on ropes. The ref counts., Ciampa lets off, and Alexander gets away.

Tag back to Alexander and he slingshot sentons! Cover, TWO! Alexander drags Ciampa up, CHOPS him against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Ciampa reverses but Alexander kicks back! But Miz grabs at Alexander! Alexander DECKS Miz, dodges Ciampa, but handsprings onto a dropkick!

Miz and Ciampa applaud and pat themselves on the back while fans boo, but this new “Must-See Duo” are on top while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns as Miz fires off It Kicks on Alexander in the corner. Tag to Ciampa, he whips Miz in to A-LIST LARIAT! Then feed to Ciampa’s LARIAT, cover, TWO!! Alexander survives that combo but Ciampa clamps on a bulldog headlock! Fans rally up as Alexander endures and fights up. Ciampa swings but misses, Alexander fires off hands but Ciampa ROCKS him! Ciampa reels Alexander in, but Alexander suplexes first! Fans fire up and Alexander crawls over, but so does Ciampa, hot tags to Miz and Ali! Ali dodges, fires off CHOP after CHOP, then whips corner to corner. Miz reverses but Ali uses it to SHOTGUN Ciampa!

Ezekiel’s family responds to Kevin Owens’ brutal assault.

Not just Elias and Elrod, but their mother, father, and kid brother, too! Ernie Jr, says if he ever gets his hands on Kevin, he will get a piece of his mind!

 

Drew McIntyre heads to gorilla.

But as he does, someone is putting out a fire! Is that the work of Dexter Lumis…?

 

Drew McIntyre heads to the ring!

The Scottish Warrior may be part of SmackDown, but he’s here on Raw because Clash at the Castle is coming! And if McIntyre wins, he’ll be able to show up on Raw all he wants! For now, McIntyre gets a mic to say, “Washington, let me hear ya scream!” Fans shout for McIntyre and he says, “I know it’s a shock to see Drew McIntyre on Raw. I’m technically on Friday Night SmackDown. It might be even more shocking to see the other guy here on Raw, but that’s something we can rectify in less than three weeks’ time. Because at Clash at the Castle, it’s Drew McIntyre VS Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Championship.”

To finish McIntyre’s thoughts from Friday, this isn’t a match that happens on the fictional Island of Relevancy! It’s taking place on DREW’S island! And he is gonna drop Roman’s ass, win those titles, and then show up on Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, the live events, everywhere the titles should be because that is what the fans and those titles deserve! And he knows there are reports that McIntyre is suffering from a back injury. To be honest, yes, it is true. Because he’s been carrying the load of 20 men for three years in the WWE, in the ring and outside it!

And he does it with a smile on his face because it is a PRIVILEGE. This isn’t a job, it’s a DREAM! That’s why he’s hereon his day off! McIntyre is here on Raw to scout the future opponents he’ll have! Wanna hear some potential ones? McIntyre VS Tommaso Ciampa! McIntyre VS AJ Styles! McIntyre VS Seth Freakin’ Rollins! McIntyre VS Karrion Kross! But here comes Kevin Owens! Kevin has a mic and McIntyre says he likes this idea, too! McIntyre VS KO! Kevin says it is so convenient that McIntyre says his name now.

But there is something about Drew that Kevin never understood. As big and good and strong as McIntyre is, he still feels the need to pretend he’s something he’s not. Because he comes out here, talks with his big, loud almost comical voice! Sometimes he has his kilt, sometimes he has a sword. He thinks this is Medieval Times? But McIntyre is delusional because if he thinks he’s been carrying anyone’s weight around here, he’s a real dumbass! Kevin says McIntyre has no idea who he really is! Kevin’s been the same person his entire 22 years of wrestling! He is and always will be Kevin Owens, who is as real as it gets in this business!

But these past few years, people have forgotten what Kevin’s about! That’s Kevin’s fault, though> he’s been having a good time, having fun coming to work. But then something dawned on Kevin when he got here today. He got goosebumps because he realized that this is the very same arena where at Battleground, Kevin and Sami Zayn had the fight of their lives and left everything they had in that ring! They gave people a match they STILL talk about six years later! And then Kevin realized there’s a side of him that’s been missing for far too long. He misses that side. He misses the old Kevin Owens. He needs to bring back the Prizefighter!

And Drew, Kevin hasn’t held a title in five long YEARS. But enough is enough, and it is time for a change! Now, Kevin is coming after everything! Every champion is a target! The US Champion, the Intercontinental Champion, the Tag Team Champions, and Drew, Kevin doesn’t care if it’s you or Roman. Whoever walks out of Cardiff has a hell of a problem, because Kevin wants the biggest prize of them all! The Undisputed WWE Universal Championship!! Fans cheer that, and McIntyre says okay, he let Kevin say his piece. And frankly, McIntyre will have to respond. McIntyre is sick of people making stuff up juts to get a reaction.

They say things like McIntyre doesn’t carry the load, he doesn’t know who he is. He knows exactly who he is, too!! Someone mocked him for being “The Chosen One.” That was 15 YEARS AGO!! Then he got FIRED, and had to work his ass off, earn his way back off! He didn’t call the WWE, they called him! And he’s worked his ass off ever since! A two-time world champion! He beat Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Randy Orton and everyone who has stood in his path! Don’t you dare pull this BS again!! Now, it’s time for Kevin and McIntyre to stop talking. Prizefighter, sports entertainer, superstar, they’re wrestlers in a wrestling ring, so let’s just freakin’ wrestle!!

Fans are thunderous and Kevin tells McIntyre that he may not be a prize, but he’s still on! Kevin and McIntyre, a preview of coming attractions, who will win this fight?

Seth Rollins is here!

The Visionary promised he’d be here to hear from Matt Riddle just like the rest of us, but what will Rollins have to say about what Riddle has to say? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Rollins has a mic. “I am a Visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth! Freakin’! Rollins! HAHAHA! And I am excited because the time has finally come.” Riddle is getting mic’d up in his mom’s basement via satellite, and he’s about to give us his “big news.” So Rollins came out here for a front row seat so we can all celebrate together, when finally, for the first time in his life, Riddle does the smart thing and tells the entire world that he is retiring! HAHAHAAA! Don’t boo! This is cause for celebration. Riddle can do whatever he wants. He can go back to middle school and finish the seventh grade.

Riddle can start a farm! That industry is very lucrative these days. Riddle says he’s glad Rollins is out there so fans can see what a slimy piece of trash he is! But Riddle doe shave a medical update about his condition. Well here it is! The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Rollins knows this is very difficult for Riddle, so the fans need to be respectful. Riddle, please continue. Riddle says it is a bit hard to say this… But he’s MEDICALLY CLEARED! So the next time Riddle sees Rollins, it is on! Oh, okay, it’s on, huh? Next time they see each other. Like at Madison Square Garden? Or SummerSlam?

Because it seems to Rollins that any time they’re in the same place at the same time, the outcome is the same: Rollins stomping Riddle into the mat! And does Riddle know why that is? Because Rollins is always one, two, three steps ahead! Rollins wishes Riddle was here right now because Rollins would love nothing more than to stomp those last few brain cells out of Riddle’s stupid, stompable head! Well glad you feel that way, Rollins. Because Riddle is NOT in his mom’s basement. He is here in DC and the arena! SO he’ll head to the ring to kick Rollins’ ass!! Riddle is rushing to gorilla, here he comes! And then down the ramp!

Riddle slides in but slides out to avoid the stomp! He drag Rollins out and fire off hands! Fans fire up, Rollins RAMS Riddle into barriers but runs away. Riddle pursues to fire off KICK after KICK after KICK! Then a BROSPLODER! Rollins bails out, Riddle goes to the apron but Rollins trips him up! Riddle crashes down hard, and Rollins drags him back up to TOSS over the desk! Rollins rains down fists, clears off the desk, and then he drags Riddle onto it! “How stupid are you!?

Winner: Veer Mahaan, by pinfall

Another battle, another win as another mere mortal falls prey to Veer Mahaan! Will even champions begin to #FearVeer?

 

Backstage interview with Dakota Kai, Bayley & Iyo Sky.

What can we expect from Kai’s first singles match here on Raw? Uh, Sarah, if you’ve been paying attention, you don’t need to ask that. Then for clarification, can she elaborate? Ugh, Bayley can’t believe this. For all the idiots out there, and for “clarification’s sake,” just please tell them. How is this: spoiler alert, she’ll win! That good enough? Sky says in Japanese and Bayley translates into English, you can expect them all to do a lot more winning when these two become the NEW WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! And that means first, they beat Alexa & Asuka next week, and again at Clash at the Castle.

Kai then spots something and walks over. “Hey! Relax. We’re not here to ambush you,” Dana, Kai just wants to make sure she’s ready. Oh, Dana’s ready. She is ready 24/7! And if these three are trying to intimidate her, she is NOT afraid of them. Kai says fear is a motivator. Maybe Dana should be afraid. Kai, Sky & Bayley head out, but will #CobraKai sink her teeth into the Flex Appeal?

Bayley & Sky celebrate with Kai, they’re taking over one win at a time! Will they be truly in control once they get those tag titles?

 

(Austin) Theory VS Dolph Ziggler!

The Youngest Mr. MITB Ever may have missed his opportunity at SummerSlam, but there’s always Clash at the Castle! Will Theory show the Showoff that Theory is the future? Or will Ziggler show Theory that he still has much to learn in the present?

Fans boo but Theory just takes a victory selfie! Will the Youngest Mr. MITB continue to upset everyone as he continues to pull out victories?


My Thoughts:

Another great Raw, though I am curious as to what we got as the main event. Ziggler VS Theory was a great match, but I did not expect that to be what closes the show with how red hot a lot of other stories have been going. I did like that during the brawl between Theory and Ziggler that Lumis’ arm was in that doorway. It doesn’t outright indicate Lumis and Theory will reunite under The Way, but it doesn’t eliminate that possibility. And it seems Lumis is obsessed with AJ Styles. Lashley VS Styles was a great match, even with Miz & Ciampa showing up, but Lumis shows up at the end of another AJ Styles match, so Styles VS Lumis might be the feud after Clash at the Castle.

Miz & Ciampa also had a very good match against Alexander & Ali, and with Ciampa saying he will seize his next title opportunity, I wonder if Miz & Ciampa will help fill out the tag division for a moment since Usos cleared out quite a few other teams. And of course the Usos showed up to go after McIntyre. McIntyre and Kevin Owens had an awesome promo segment, and awesome match, but then the Usos had to “ruin” it. But McIntyre stands tall tonight, so who knows how heated it’ll get this Friday on SmackDown.

And while Kevin is returning to his old self, he also seems to have the added gimmick of claiming no one else knows who they are. I hope he gets to cut a promo on the entire Elias/Ezekiel family. I busted up at that picture they had of the whole family. I hope we get a Nutty Professor: Meet the Klumps kind of promo. Then, like Omos did before, Veer returned to do another squash match just so we don’t forget he exists. At this point, why not have those two guys interact. Omos VS Veer would be really tricky, though, because one of those monsters has to lose. A team of them would also be hard because how would the Usos survive them? At the very least, HHH should probably move one of them over to SmackDown so there’s more space for both of them.

Dakota also squashed Dana to kinda make a point that “The Control” (still not canonically named on TV) are higher up on the card. And we haven’t gotten any 24/7 Championship shenanigans lately, I wonder what HHH has planned for that title. We got a great opening match from the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament, Asuka & Alexa of course winning to then take on Kai & Sky next round. That is going to be a great match, just on Asuka and Sky finally facing off in the WWE. I would think Kai & Sky win to then win the tag titles before Clash at the Castle, but who knows. If so, I wonder if there’s a possibility of Winners Take All in that Six Woman Tag…

We got a good promo from The Judgement Day, and a pretty good brawl with Rey Mysterio, but of course Rey loses when it’s 3v1. I wonder if the Raw in Toronto will help push things towards Edge & Rey VS Judgement Day in time for Clash. And it seems Rollins VS Riddle is happening at Clash after not happening at SummerSlam. Rollins and Riddle had a great promo and a great brawl, they should have an almost show-stealing match.

My Score: 8.5/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

Penelope Ford returns to action in AEW as Dark: Elevation serves the leftovers from Dynamite’s Quake by the Lake!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS T.U.G Cooper, Drew System, Rylie Jackson & Adam Grace; The Dark Order wins.
  • Serena Deeb VS Sierra; Deeb wins.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS Cezar Bononi; Konosuke wins.
  • Julia Hart VS Free-Range Kara; Julia wins.
  • Private Party VS JAH-C & JDX; Private Party wins.

  • The Acclaimed VS Justin Fowler & JT Energy; The Acclaimed win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.
