The Phenom, The Dead Man, The Undertaker.

For three decades, the “awe inspiring” and truly one of a kind talent has made sure his opponents would #RestInPeace. He battled other legends, such as Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Mick Foley, Kurt Angle, and even his own Brother of Destruction, Kane! His streak at WrestleMania went on for 21 YEARS before being stopped, but even that didn’t stop him. “Every time that I went out, I went out to do the best that I could. I did things my way. I’m gonna leave my way. This time, the cowboy really rides away.” Mark Calaway has been blessed to have his family at home and his family on the road and around the world.

 

#ThankYouTaker!

SmackDown’s Superstars cheer and clap for the legend, acknowledging that the ride has finally ended. We will hear from an incredible list of legends to recount their own interactions with The Phenom over his 30 year career. But first, we start where it all began! Survivor Series 1990, The Undertaker’s debut!!

“From Death Valley,” the Million Dollar Man called upon the Deadman, the Undertaker! “Look at the size of that hamhock!” Taker had an ominous presence and chilling expression from the moment he got in the ring with Dusty Rhodes’ Survivor Series team. That was the first chapter, but we will relive the last: The Boneyard Match from WrestleMania 36!

 

SmackDown hears from some of Taker’s best opponents.

John Cena says, “I think the legacy of The Undertaker is reliability.” His dedication to the craft. Taker loved the business so much, he put it above all else. Roman Reigns says Taker is legitimately one of the best performers of all time, in any form of entertainment. Cena says the passion and dedication can’t be questioned. Reigns says Taker dedicated his whole life. You can’t do that and not love this business. The bar for respect is Taker. It isn’t just getting to the top, but staying there as long as he did. That goes to the investment and passion, and the belief the fans had.

Edge says “There is a definite mood that changes within the entire arena when that first gong hits.” Christian remembers being in awe of that larger than life aura. Taker took that character, morphed it and kept it alive. Bret Hart says Taker delivered every time. There’s just something special, like lightning in a bottle. Taker caught that lightning all 30 years.

Kane says Taker is the greatest character in the history of the WWE. Ric Flair says Taker was a “whole new deal.” A character so unique, it was mythical, legendary and amazing. Never before was there someone that big that could move that way. Diving over the top rope at 6’10”, 280 lbs, who else does that? And Taker is the only one who has been able to maintain his integrity and add to it. So strong and well-defined, Taker is perhaps the biggest star in the business.

 

Boneyard Match: The Undertaker VS AJ Styles!

The Phenomenal One couldn’t stand that the Phenom made sure he didn’t win accolades unfairly. But then he made it personal by badmouthing Taker’s legacy, and Taker’s wife, Michelle McCool. This would be the match that settled the score between them, and cement the final chapter of the Deadman’s legacy!

Cameras take us to a cemetery in an undisclosed location. A hearse pulls up as Taker’s theme plays. Hooded figures bring a casket out of the back. The casket opens, but it isn’t Taker, but AJ Styles! Styles laughs as he hops out and looks around. “This don’t look scary at all!” Styles dares Taker to show himself. “I’m ready!” And pulling up on a motorcycle with Metallica blaring, it’s Big Evil! The American Badass drives into the Boneyard! Styles is surprised Taker came. Does Michelle know he’s up this late? A grave has been dug for Taker, but Taker says that’s for Styles. Taker steps to Styles, but Styles grabs a brick! Taker DECKS Styles first and dares Styles to get back up. Styles wanted this, now he’s going to get it! Taker decks Styles again then brings him to the grave.

Styles gets away but Taker pursues. Taker turns “Allen” around to DECK him again! Taker throws Styles into the casket lid! “It’s all fun, right?” He bounces Styles off the lid! And again! Styles crawls but Taker grabs a big spike! Taker goes after Styles but Styles moves! The hearse’s window smashes and cuts Taker’s arm. Taker isn’t scared, he’s just upset. Taker keeps Styles from crawling away but Styles kicks back! The two brawl and Taker throws Styles over the hood ONTO the windshield! The glass cracks and Taker wonders if Styles still wants some. It’s here that SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns as Styles flops off the side of the car and Taker asks if he wants more. Taker stalks Styles but Styles hits back! Styles has Taker wobbling and he LOW BLOWS him! No Disqualifications in the Boneyard! Styles drags Taker over to the grave. Styles punches Taker over and over but Taker stays up. “Just fall already.” But Taker ROCKS Styles back! Taker hauls Styles up to punch him into the grave! “How does that feel down there?” But here come the Good Brothers! The OC says this is just getting started. Taker heads over, but then lights turn on. And from the light, hooded figures emerge and surround Taker! Taker watches them closely, and a huge brawl breaks out!

Taker fights off the mysterious minions but then Gallows and Anderson attack! They beat Taker down on the ground and stomp him around. Gallows drags Taker up and Anderson has a shovel stick. Taker fights free and boots Anderson down! He decks Gallows, then Anderson. Taker takes the shovel stick to CLOBBER Anderson! And then CLUB Gallows! But Styles returns and SMASHES Taker with a cinder block! “You ain’t got what it takes, old man!” Styles clubs Taker back down and talks more trash about Michelle. He rains down hands but ends up jamming his own fingers. Styles fixes his hand and blames Taker for that.

Taker gasps and sputters as Styles tells him to stay down. Taker refuses and sits up. Styles tells him to quit and retire already, or he’s going to bury him. Taker stands and Styles RAMS him THROUGH THE FENCE! Both men are down, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Styles crawls from the wreckage while Taker continues to gasp. “You just don’t have it anymore, old man.” Taker slowly gets up but Styles is standing. Taker flips Styles off and eggs him on! So Styles throws down more fists! Styles says the “American Badass” just looks like some “broken down old bi*ch.” Styles grabs a shovel with a head on it, and says he is doing the WWE Universe a favor. Taker crawls and Styles BREAKS the shovel across his back! Taker falls into the grave! Styles sprinkles dirt as he says, “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” Styles goes to the tractor and starts it up. But wait! Is that…?! Taker magically appears behind him!!

Taker punches Styles again and again! Styles flounders off the tractor and Taker kicks him around. Styles heads for a ladder by the barn. Taker pursues Styles as he’s on the roof. This is what he wanted, isn’t it? Styles backs away, but PILLARS OF FIRE keep him from running! Taker BOOTS Styles down! Then he punches the OC away! Taker throws Gallows off the roof! And he scoops Anderson for a TOMBSTONE! That’s a tin roof, too! Now it’s just Taker and Styles. Styles doesn’t understand how Taker is doing this. Styles throws hands but Taker just eggs him on. Taker then choke grips Styles, for a CHOKE SLAM OFF THE ROOF!! Taker climbs down the ladder and stalks over to Styles, while SmackDown takes a break.

SmackDown returns again, and Styles stirs in the wreckage of the fence. Taker asks if Styles remembers his wife’s name. Taker wants Styles to stay awake, because they’ve still got plenty to do. He drags Styles from the wood wreckage and scoops him. Taker carries Styles over to the grave and drops him just outside. Styles apologizes but Taker wants him to be specific. Taker drags Styles up and says he put up a hell of a fight. Styles doesn’t want to be buried, but Taker says he isn’t going to do that. They hug it out and Taker commends Styles for bringing the fight. Taker pats Styles on the head, then BOOTS him into the grave! Taker goes to the tractor, starts it up again, and DUMPS DIRT INTO THE GRAVE! Taker uncovers the headstone, and it reads… AJ STYLES!

Winner: The Undertaker

Styles is left behind in a shallow grave as Taker gets back on his motorcycle. And with a raise of his fist, fire shoots from the barn! Taker’s symbol glows in the sky as he heads out into the night. Taker’s last ride was one final victory, and his legacy shall never #RestInPeace.

 

SmackDown returns to live, and Baron Corbin is in the ring!

The Wolf King applauds Taker’s final match. It just happened to be 30 years after his first. But why was it a Boneyard Match? Because that is exactly what Taker is: “an old bag of bones.” The crowd boos as Corbin says Taker was a shell of what he used to be. Taker is supposed to have this storied career, wow~. How many of those years were spent by Taker kissing the ass of a certain family? There used to be a Kiss My Ass CLUB! And Taker was the founding member! Corbin says 30 years is impossible, unless you’re coddled and protected by the boss. The crowd boos but Corbin says Taker has been STEALING money from WWE for the last TWENTY years! Taker is a selfish SOB who was holding superior athletes back for a very, very long time.

Now Corbin has to hear all these Hall of Famer sand legends pay respect! And a bunch of fools chanting, “Thank You, Taker!” on top of it. But Corbin doesn’t thank Taker at all! The crowd starts that chant up but Corbin says Mark Calaway needs to be left with one final thought: “You suck!” Jeff Hardy attacks Corbin from behind! The Charismatic Enigma won’t let Corbin talk trash anymore! Corbin gets away, tries to come back for more, but Hardy WRECKS him with a dropkick! Hardy defends the honor of the Phenom, will he get to shut Corbin up once and for all?

 

More superstars speak on The Undertaker.

When Stone Cold thinks of Taker, he thinks of a guy with all this mystique. As soon as you met him, you knew he’d be somebody. Kurt Angle says Taker is a very intelligent man. Taker knows how to evolve and adapt. It was not just the evolution of a character, but of his wrestling style. Austin knows Taker is one of the toughest guys ever, just on what he’s done at WrestleMania time and again. “He’s a warhorse.” Angle notes the big main event level matches at Mania. He’s like Superman. The company always put a lot of pressure on him, but he’d always given his all. Taker wanted WrestleMania moments, the matches fans would remember forever. Taker deserves that notoriety. Taker has had one of the best careers in wrestling ever.

 

Backstage interview with Jeff Hardy.

It seems he took offense at Corbin’s disparaging comments about The Undertaker. Corbin hit a nerve. Taker was a mentor and teacher from day one. WWE’s Mount Rushmore would just be Taker four times. Everyone owes a debt of gratitude to Taker. But since Taker can’t be here to deliver a message, Hardy will do that for him. His Royal Highness can consider this a challenge. As a graduate of Deadman University, Hardy will unleash all of that painful knowledge that took him a lifetime to acquire.

 

Bayley and Sasha Banks join commentary!

The Golden Role Models are back, feeling great after not only retaining their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, but from issuing a challenge to Asuka! The Boss wants to join Bayley in the double belts club, but that will have to wait. They’re here to watch…

SmackDown Women’s Championship #1 Contender Fatal 4 Way: Alexa Bliss VS Nikki Cross VS Dana Brooke VS Lacey Evans!

The SmackDown Women’s Champion still needs a contender! The Goddess and Loony Lass put their friendship aside for just a moment as they, Ms. Flex Appeal and the Sassy Southern Belle fight for the right to go after #BayleyDosStraps! Who proves they’re ready to get extreme?

The bell rings, the four approach, and Lacey shoves Alexa. Nikki pushes back, but then Dana pushes Nikki. Alexa pushes Dana, Lacey rolls Alexa up, Nikki rolls Dana! TWO and TWO, and Bliss-Cross regroups. Nikki wants things to wait a moment, but then Dana and Lacey kick Bliss-Cross. They go to opposite corners for stomps and haymakers! But Nikki turns things around on Dana to throw forearms. Alexa does the same to Lacey, and then Bliss-Cross work together, to go corner to corner and splash Lacey and Dana! Then they go corner to corner, Alexa SLAPS Lacey and Nikki CHOPS Dana! Bliss-Cross hug, but then Nikki rolls Alexa! ONE, and Nikki apologizes, but this is about the singles title. Alexa understands, shakes hands, and the two friends circle.

Alexa and Nikki tie up, and turns out Bayley doesn’t approve of the name “Golden Role Models.” Nikki wrenches, Alexa rolls her to a cover, TWO! Alexa headlocks but Nikki powers out. Things speed up, Lacey trips and drags Alexa out, to throw into barriers! Dana and Lacey flank Nikki, but Nikki fights back, and jumps onto Lacey for a sleeper hold! Dana throws Nikki down, runs and handspring splashes! Cover, but Lacey breaks it! Dana and Lacey argue, Nikki throws forearms! Lacey kicks then Dana stomps Nikki down. Dana and Lacey double whip Nikki to a corner, stomp away, but Alexa runs in. Alexa’s sent into Nikki, and Dana DECKS Lacey! Dana handsprings corner to corner to sandwich Bliss-Cross! Lacey LARIATS Dana!

Lacey gives Bliss-Cross a swinging BRONCO BUSTER! Cover, but Dana breaks it! “that’s what you get!” But then Lacey tackles Dana! Lacey hammers away, then whips Dana, but Dana handsprings and back elbows! Dana drags Lacey up, scoops and slams her to a drop zone, then heads to the corner. Dana climbs up, aims, and SWANTONS! Cover, but Nikki breaks it! Bayley and Sasha are slightly impressed with this match. The crowd rallies with Nikki but Dana DECKS her! Dana brings Nikki up, scoops and slams her down, then fires up. But Alexa ROCKS and STOS’s Dana down! The crowd fires up as Alexa climbs up top now. TWISTED BLISS onto knees! Nikki gets in, and dropkicks Dana out of the ring!

Lacey, Nikki and Alexa are left, and Bliss-Cross works together. Lacehy sweeps Alexa’s legs, decks Nikki then BOOTS Alexa! Nikki bums Lacey off buckles, runs in, but Lacey dodges. Lacey forearms and sweeps the legs, then slingshots for the elbow drop! But Dana returns, Lacey dodges, Dana handsprings, into the WOMAN’S RIGHT! Nikki rolls Lacey! NIKKI WINS!

Winner: Nikki Cross, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the SmackDown Women’s Championship)

Extreme Rules is going to be crazy! Because Crazy Cross has the title in her cross hairs! Will Nikki take one of Bayley’s belts away?

 

More superstars speak on The Undertaker.

Triple H thinks he’s one of the most loyal people he’s ever met. The loyalty to the business, to what he dedicated his life to, and what gave him his life. The longevity to evolve in a methodical way, for HBK, is magical. Because of that, you can’t help but respect him. There were constants in the WWE, and one of them was Taker. The legacy is that there will never be another like him.

 

8 Man Tag: The New Day & Lucha House Party VS The Miz, John Morrison, Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura!

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions return and celebrate with the Golden Lynx and King of the Ropes! Kofi and Big E still want to settle scores with Cesaro and Nakamura, but will they also have to worry about #LuchaLit on the other side?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin.

The Wolf King has his crown and his scepter as he prepares for Jeff Hardy. Hardy says Taker is a mentor, but where did that get him? In and out of jail, in and out of rehab, and yet Hardy thinks he’ll teach Corbin a lesson. Corbin will teach Hardy a lesson in reality. Hardy should follow in Taker’s footsteps and hang it up. That way, Hardy can finally #RestInPeace. The King of the Ring is laughing now, but will he be the fool after tonight?

 

SmackDown returns to BRAUN!

The Strowman Express pulls into the ring, still managing a smile even after witnessing the resurrection of the old Bray Wyatt. “I wanna tell you about when I first met Bray Wyatt.” For the first time in his life, he felt fear. Not a bump in the night as a child. The type of fear that makes the hair on your neck stand up. The type of fear that gives you the feeling in the pit of your stomach that something’s wrong. The type of fear that makes grown men tremble. One night, Strowman sat at the edge of the swamp, and Bray’s lantern shone in the dark. As Strowman looked in the water, a water moccasin snake slithered right up to that lantern. As Strowman noticed, he wanted to stop the snake, but Bray said, “No, no no. That’s my friend.,”

Strowman didn’t understand. He watched Bray walk to the snake and kneel down to be face to face with it. As the snake coiled up, it lashed out and bit Bray right on the face. All Bray did was laugh! Bray laughed as the snake bit him again and again and again. It was in this moment that Strowman knew he was in the presence of evil. Bray didn’t get poisoned by the snake, he didn’t bleed, he didn’t even flinch! All Bray did… was laugh. Bray was the devil himself. Strowman was overcome with emotion, enamored at this feat he just witnessed. And so, Strowman did the devil’s work. The worst part of it all? Strowman loved every second of it. Parts of him still do.

Strowman has done everything in his power to lock that side away. It is in the back of his mind, somewhere he thought he could forget about it. But it calls to him. And Bray, Strowman can’t go on living like this. “So what do you say we go back to the swamp? To that eerie, miserable hell you call home.” This ends only one of two ways. Strowman thinks and thinks and thinks. He either comes out of this “the most evil son of a bitch this earth has ever seen,” or he comes out with the satisfaction that he spat in the devil’s face and ripped him limb from limb and stomped him out! Then, Strowman will drag Bray into the swamp and let the gators finish him.

So what does Bray say? Does he want to go home? Because Strowman is ready to turn it into the place of Bray’s destruction. “Let’s go home.” Bray’s response? Flashes of the Wyatt Family, and his laughter. Braun echoes that laughter. Has Bray already won?

 

More superstars speak on The Undertaker.

If Batista were to brag about his WWE career, it wouldn’t be what he accomplished, but the fact he worked with someone like Taker. Mick Foley still gets asked if he ever wrestled Taker, and when he says yes, their eyes light up. Taker was the top of the totem pole. Having the respect of someone like that shows how truly great Batista was. Foley’s career benefited so much, he can’t imagine what it’d be without Taker. Taker is one of the best ever. There will never be anyone to ever match him. We’re all fortunate to have seen him to performer. Taker has even transcended sports entertainment to become one of the best in all of entertainment.

 

Jeff Hardy VS Baron Corbin!

The Charismatic Enigma and Wolf King have each spoken their piece, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will Hardy put up enough to shut up Corbin forever? Or does Corbin get to retire another icon?

The bell rings, Hardy rushes Corbin but Corbin runs him over! Corbin mocks the crowd cheering for Hardy then rains down rights. Corbin brings Hardy up by his hair, throws body shots, but Hardy hits back! Hardy runs, but into a back elbow! Cover, TWO! Corbin is upset with the ref but he goes back to Hardy. Corbin drags Hardy up to throw forearms into Hardy’s back. He stomps Hardy down but the crowd rallies up. Corbin stalks Hardy to the ropes and stands on Hardy’s head! Corbin brings Hardy up by his hair again, puts him on the ropes and CLUBS him with forearms over and over. The ref counts, Corbin argues with him, then goes back to choke Hardy on the ropes! The ref counts, Corbin stops at 4, and Corbin soaks up the heat from the crowd.

Corbin runs at Hardy, Hardy dodges and clotheslines Corbin out! Then baseball slides, but into a right hand! Hardy bumps into the announce desk and Corbin refreshes the ring count. Corbin goes to bump Hardy off steps but Hardy blocks and elbows back! Hardy throws hands, Corbin knees, then whips. Hardy reverses and Corbin goes over the desk! Corbin flounders, Hardy returns to the apron, and Hardy LEAPS to ax handle Corbin down! The crowd fires up with Hardy as he puts Corbin back in the ring. Hardy clubs Corbin around the ring, stomps him at the ropes, then bumps him off buckles. Corbin flounders but Hardy stays on him with more buckle bumps!

Hardy whips Corbin corner to corner, Corbin reverses, but Hardy elbows back! Hardy goes up, WHISPER IN THE WIND FLOPS! Corbin hurries to POST Hardy! Hardy flops out of the ring, the crowd boos, but Corbin just revels in it. A ring count begins, and Corbin mocks Taker’s famous pose! The crowd boos even harder as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and this has unofficially become a Lumberjack Match as many superstars now surround the ring. Corbin leans on Hardy with a chinlock but Hardy endures. Hardy fights up, fights back, but Corbin throws him by his hair! Everyone boos but Corbin doesn’t care. Corbin brings Hardy up to DECK him! Corbin mocks the rallying applause, then rains down rights on Hardy. Cover, TWO! Corbin brings Hardy back up to run and DECK him again! Corbin stalks Hardy as the superstars chant, “Corbin Sucks!” Hardy hits back and boots from the corner! Corbin knees low then brings Hardy around to whip him hard into buckles. Corbin runs in, Hardy dodges, Corbin slides out then in, and he CLOBBERS Hardy again!

Corbin looms over Hardy as the superstars and crowd boo. Corbin throws Hardy out then storms over. He presses Hardy against Plexiglas then CLUBS him! Corbin laughs at the smudge left on the glass before he refreshes the count. Corbin drags Hardy up and in, backs the “lumberjacks” down, then goes into the ring. Cover, TWO! Corbin clamps on a chinbar and half nelson to crank on Hardy. The rallying continues as Hardy endures. Hardy fights up, fights back, and jawbreakers free! Corbin staggers into another jawbreaker! Hardy gets up, counter punches Corbin, then whips. Corbin reverses but Hardy forearms him down! Atomic drop, leg trip and leg splitting leg drop! Basement dropkick! Drop splash, cover, TWO!

The crowd rallies as Hardy gets up. Hardy waits for Corbin to stand, kicks him low, but no Twist yet! Corbin runs into a haymaker! Hardy goes up but Corbin clubs him down. Corbin back suplexes, Hardy lands on his feet! Hardy dodges, but runs into DEEP SIX! Cover, TWO!! Hardy still lives and only Corbin is upset. Hardy gets out of the ring, the lumberjacks coach him up, and Hardy dodges Corbin to send him into steps! Hardy puts Corbin in, throws off his shirt, and climbs up top! SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, Hardy wins!!

Winner: Jeff Hardy, by pinfall

And SmackDown celebrates with him! But Corbin’s a sore loser and attacks from behind! Corbin rains down hands, then DECKS Kofi! Big E scoops Corbin, for the BIG ENDING! Big E helps Hardy up, and Hardy wants Strowman to join in! Strowman gets in, takes off the Universal Championship and waits for Corbin to stand. Corbin does, and Strowman scoops for the MONSTER SLAM! Hardy wants Matt Riddle to get involved! The Bro obliges, goes to a corner, and hits the FLOATING BRO! SmackDown is united in downing the disrespectful Corbin! Hardy pays tribute by striking Taker’s signature pose! #ThankYouTaker!


My Thoughts:

A really good episode of SmackDown, though I was a bit disappointed that their televised encore of the Boneyard Match had to cut some out of the beginning. Still a really good match even the second time around. Hearing from all the superstars that faced him in the past was great, and obviously they were all absolutely right. While the WWE may have made Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Stone Cold, John Cena, Batista and even The Shield members feel like the stars, Taker was always the real star of the show just on how he was always around. There’s not much more anyone else can say other than #ThankYouTaker.

What we got as new material was still pretty good. Clearly Corbin is used as the Heel heat magnet punching bag, which is fine. His match with Hardy was really good, and a great way to end the show to set up the new generation paying homage to the legend. The 8 Man Tag was a great match, and it was pretty great for LHP to get the pin to bring them up in the ranks. New Day VS Cesaro & Nakamura is still looking like the match for Extreme Rules, but maybe LHP comes in for something on the way to SummerSlam. We got a great Fatal 4 Way contenders match, and I’m excited to see Nikki Cross getting the nod here. She has Alexa to counter Sasha being in Bayley’s corner, but this could add to Sasha challenging Asuka. Bayley could want Sasha to back her up against Bliss-Cross even though Sasha has to prepare for her own match, and the tension is automatically there.

Braun’s promo basically accepting Bray’s rematch challenge was just the right kind of creepy. He delivered that story about the snake in the swamp very well, and it is clearly feeding into this “Horror Show” subtitle WWE is slapping onto Extreme Rules. Whatever match Bray and Braun end up having, I’m growing confident that they’ll do an amazing job, just as with Boneyard Match, Firefly Fun House match and the other cinematic matches.

My Score: 8.3/10

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: The Usos VS Matt Riddle & Elias!

The Bloodline is here as Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa accompany Jimmy & Jey to the ring. The reign is over 500 days and counting, but could that time be up here in Washington, DC? Or will

As footage shows, it was earlier tonight when the Bloodline arrived. They were fired up, but Byron Saxton walked over to interview them. But then The Bro scooters in super fast! The Bloodline gets clear, and they’re upset. Jey says it doesn’t matter, they gonna get Riddle AND Elias tonight like they have every other team! If Riddle and Elias want at the titles, just look who showed up tonight? But then Elias comes out of his tour bus to ask what all the commotion’s about. Solo CLOBBERS Elias from behind! The Bloodline mugs The Drifter, and Solo whips Elias into spare railing! Sami says that’s what they get! Then he realizes Elias might be hurt.

In the present, Jey gets a mic to say, “The Bloodline is now in your city!” But Jimmy says there’s some bad news. The championship match that was supposed to go down is officially canceled! Cuz the Enforcer, Solo Sikoa, done bodied Elias in the parking lot. Now, everyone surely came here to see them compete, but here’s the bright side: Riddle won’t be humiliated, and Elias can go home to work on any song he wants to. Sami adds, “Bet! Sorry, it just felt like a good time for a ‘bet.'” Jimmy understands. But what you can look forward to now is the Usos focusing on being the best tag team ever!

The Usos will defend against any team that wants to run up, but those that run up will get done up! Because everyone else is the twos, and #WeTheOnes! But “Bro…” Riddle comes out to say, “First of all, it wasn’t so cool of you guys to take out my partner Elias tonight, dude. Like tonight was his first night to finally get WWE gold. And honestly, if I’m being real, it’s not really like The Bloodline to run from a fight. I would say it’s not very… How you say? Ucey?” Sami tells Riddle, “Yo yo yo yo yo yo! Hold up, my dawg.” Sami wants to explain something to Riddle. Riddle is not the one who decides what is or isn’t Ucey. Sami’s a bit of an expert in this field.

In fact, Sami is a certified Uceologist. What? Sami is the one to say what is and isn’t Ucey. For example, Solo Sikoa showing once again why he IS the Enforcer by destroying Elias, that is UCEY! The Usos continuing to be the longest reigning tag team champions in history, that is UCEY! Riddle coming out here, running his mouth, thinking he ever had a chance at beating them is NOT Ucey. So unless Riddle wants to suffer the same fate as Elias, just go home. Riddle says he did find someone else. And there WILL be a tag title match tonight! Now, Riddle and this guy aren’t really bros, but they both hate the Bloodline. It’s KEVIN OWENS!!

The Prizefighter and the Bro go to the ring but the Usos say that’s fine. Will the #KOBros be the ones to dethrone Jimmy & Jey?

The teams sort out, Kevin and Jey start and the bell rings. Kevin blocks Jey’s superkick and fires off haymakers! Kevin has Jey in a corner, the ref counts and Kevin lets off at 4. Kevin drags Jey up to whip to ropes and he CLOBBERS Jey with an elbow, to then SENTON! Cover, TWO! Sami coaches Jey but Kevin drags Jey up. Kevin bumps Jey off buckles, JABS, then backs up to run corner to corner! CANNO- NO, Jimmy gets Jey out of the way. Fans boo but Kevin goes out after them all to CLOBBER Jimmy! Kevin whips Jey into barriers! Fans fire up with Kevin, Kevin asks Solo what he’s staring at, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns as Kevin covers, TWO! Jimmy survives the cannonball but Kevin knocks him back down. Kevin goes up and up and MOONSUALTS! Cover, ONE!! Jimmy scrambles to ropes, Sami is upset about things, but Riddle tags in. Riddle stands Jimmy up to ROCK him with haymakers. Riddle whips, Jimmy reverses but Riddle holds ropes to BOOT Jimmy. But Jimmy distracts the ref and Jey ENZIGURIS Riddle down! Sami is fired up but fans boo the cheap shot. Jimmy tags Jey, the Usos split the wishbone. Jey looms over Riddle, he drags Riddle around then stomps him down. Jey throws his shirt at Kevin but Kevin just throws it on the floor.

Jey CHOKES Riddle on the ropes, he lets off at 4, and Jimmy BOOTS Riddle down! The cheap shots continue and fans boo again. Jey drags Riddle up, scoops him and tags Jimmy. Jimmy climbs up, BACKBREAKER AX HANDLE COMBO! Cover, TWO! Riddle hangs tough and the Usos are annoyed. Fans rally but Jimmy drags Riddle up to ROCK him! Riddle ROCKS Jimmy back, fires off more shots, then he BLASTS Jey! Jimmy UPPERCUTS Riddle down! Jimmy BLASTS Kevin for good measure! But Riddle fires off forearms on Jimmy! Jey tags in as Riddle whips, and Jimmy reverses, the Usos DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER! Jey covers, TWO!

Sami is anxious and even Solo shows a bit of stress as Riddle is still in this. But Sami says Jey has Riddle where they want him. Jey stands Riddle up but Riddle CHOPS and CHOPS and fires off fast hands! Jey ducks the roundhouse, to POP-UP NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Riddle survives but still in a bad way as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Riddle wipes out both Usos! Riddle BROTONS Jimmy then tags in Kevin! Kevin goes up top fast, to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Sami is stressing out as Kevin keeps focus on Jimmy. Jimmy rises slowly and Sami tries to warn him, but Jimmy turns around into a kick! But Jimmy stops the Stunner! Kevin stops the superkick, to SUPERKICK back! Kevin whips, but Jimmy slips off the pop-up to SUPERKICK! Both men are down and fans fire up! Both men crawl, hot tags to Jey and Riddle! Riddle spins Jey around to PELE! Then Riddle kips up, but Jey mule kicks and UPPERCUTS!

Riddle goes to ropes, Jey run sin but Riddle headscissors him out of the ring! Riddle hurries back in, Sami helps Jey stand up. Kevin storms over but Solo stands in the way! The ref warns Solo, but then Riddle PLANCHAS to take Solo out! Jey SUPERKICKS Kevin! Riddle FLASH KNEES Jey! Riddle puts Jey in, tells Sami to back off, but Jimmy tags in! Riddle rushes Jey but Jimmy storms in. Riddle ROCKS Jimmy, Jey USPERKICKS Riddle! ONE D on the rebound!! Cover, USOS WIN!

Winners: The Usos, by pinfall (still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)

The Bloodline’s numbers game is the real unstoppable force in the WWE! And now Sami and the Usos mug Riddle! But Kevin has a chair! He SMACKS Jimmy, and he SMACKS Jey! Sami gets away but Kevin chases him to the back! Solo gets in the ring to SUPERKICK Riddle! Solo fires off on Riddle with heavy fists! Fans boo but the Enforcer isn’t done with Riddle yet. Solo has a taped up thumb, shoutout to Umaga with the SAMOAN SPIKE!! Riddle sputters and crawls to a corner, Solo runs in to HIP ATTACK!! Solo’s rage is unleashed as he gets a chair for himself.

Solo puts the chair around Riddle’s head, punches Riddle down, then goes to the far corner. Fans boo as hard as they can but Solo roars and runs in, FULL METAL HIP ATTACK!!! Riddle writhes and clutches his neck! Medics rush out and put Riddle in a neck brace and onto a backboard. Did Solo just sideline The Bro all on his own?

 

BREAKING NEWS for SmackDown!

Sheamus and Drew McIntyre wanted to challenge the winners to an Undisputed Tag Team Championship match this Friday, but the Scottish Warrior is unfortunately not cleared medically. That means the Celtic Warrior will have “Butch” as his new tag partner! Will Pete Dunne be able to help Sheamus against the Usos? Or will it be more of the same from The Bloodline?

 

The Judgment Day speaks.

Rhea says, “Bayley and Asuka, they’re both credible. They’ve both been Women’s Champion, they’ve both been Women’s Tag Team Champion. They’re both very, very good at what they do. But you know what they’re not? They’re not Rhea bloody Ripley! So when I’m done with them tonight and they’re laying in that ring crying their eyes out and I move on to Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship, and when I’m done with Bianca, the whole Raw Women’s locker room will be calling me Mami.” The Judgment Day like that, and then Rhea high-fives as she heads out. Will the Eradicator eliminate everyone in her path to the title?

 

JBL’s Poker Invitational begins!

Tamina, Dana Brooke, Shelton Benjamin, Dominik Mysterio and Akira Tozawa are one table, while Chad Gable, Luke Gallows and Baron Corbin are another. Otis has a huge plate of sausage but he isn’t sharing. JBL walks over to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the JBL Poker Invitational, an event that’ll become as big a tradition as The Masters, the Olympics, and as grand a spectacle as WrestleMania. Now, I know a lot of you don’t see eye to eye, and Tozawa… Nobody likes you. But poker is a gentlemen’s, and gentlewoman’s, sport. Especially in the high stakes room. The rules are simple: It is a dime ante. 10, 20K-”

BOOM! Dexter Lumis enters with Johnny Gargano, and he drops the Louis Vuitton bag full of cash he won from The Miz! JBL assumes Crystal Lake doesn’t get mail, but Jason Vorhees here needs an invitation. And JBL is pretty sure he didn’t invite the… one-and-a-half of them. Besides, Lumis can’t possibly have the 50K buy-in. So go stare at someone else. Gargano says “Show ’em.” And Lumis dumps the money out! Well okay! Welcome to the tournament! Lumis has a seat at the table, will anyone be able to crack that poker face?

 

Triple Threat: Bayley VS Rhea Ripley VS Asuka!

A Role Model, an Eradicator and an Empress walk into the ring, but this ain’t no joke! Only one can move on to the next round, who will be one step closer to facing The RawEST Women’s Champion?

But then surprisingly, Becky Lynch calls to Bayley from up in the bleachers! “Hey, ol’ pal! Well, I dunno if I can call ya pal anymore, seeing as how you and your cronies keep trying to jump me.” Fans cheer Becky on and she says, “I was just up at the merch stand, reminiscing about how fun it was last week, me beating up Bayley and her two cronies at one time. That was awesome.” Bayley says it’d be more awesome if Becky could hurry this up. Bayley has stuff to do. Well Becky wants Bayley to know that first, this is a great fan sign, #BigTimeBecky. But did Bayley also know that it’s been over three years since they faced each other 1v1?

Becky says they didn’t even scratch the surface back then. She was gone, Bayley showed up, but kudos to Bayley for carrying the WWE during the ThunderDome era! She really did! She was champion, Double Champion, sometimes doing double and triple duty. Bayley says the fans can cheer for that. The fans do cheer! Becky says Bayley was awesome, but then Becky came back right as Bayley was gone. And then Bayley came back right as Becky was gone. Bayley says she’s kinda repeating herself, and we all know the history. But Becky has a match so she should go, and also Bayley has a match right now that she’s about to win.

So the point is, Becky doesn’t need to tell Bayley’s history. That doesn’t matter now. Stop living in the past! Becky came down the stairs, she’s interrupting matches and Bayley’s “Magic!” Becky thinks she can just do whatever she wants, huh? Yeah, actually, she does. Becky was just trying to catch up. But Bayley says the difference between them, now more than ever, when Becky is here, it’s all about her, isn’t it? Fans cheer Becky because they definitely like her. Bayley says the fans just make it worse. Becky doesn’t care about the fans or anyone else! BAYLEY cares about the fans and the wrestlers!

And that’s what Bayley has been doing while Becky’s been gone. That’s why Bayley has Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky. She looks out of the future for the idiot fans! And the locker room! Bayley sees the bigger picture, but Becky just looks in the mirror! No one cheers, huh? That’s because no one has respect for what Bayley’s doing! Fans still cheer Becky. Becky says Bayley is looking out for people, and DMG CTRL has been successful. Well, two thirds have been, because there’s two champs and one loser. But hey, good luck tonight. Maybe they can finally go 1v1 again and make some history. If Bayley’s woman enough to face The Man, that is.

Becky leaves just as Rhea makes her entrance. Will Big Time Becks have to change her plans on who she’s facing next round?

Raw returns and Asuka makes her entrance. The bell rings and Asuka DROPKICKS Bayley! But Rhea rolls Asuka, ONE!! Asuka dodges Rhea’s haymaker but Bayley ROCKS her! Bayley grab at Asuka but Rhea rolls Bayley up, ONE!! Rhea kicks and stomps and KNEE SMASHES Bayley to then throw her out. Asuka runs in but Rhea catches her hip attack! Rhea CLUBS Asuka, suplexes high and hard, then covers, TWO! Rhea CLUBS Asuka, CLUBS her more, then bumps her off buckles. Fans rally for Asuka but Rhea RAMS into her again and again. Bayley runs up, but Rhea blocks the roll-up! Bayley avoids the stomp, and the two stare down.

Bayley taunts “Mami,” then dodges her haymaker to waistlock. Rhea pries the hold, bucks Bayley at the ropes, then runs in again to scoop. Bayley slips off, but Rhea blocks the punch! Rhea throws body shots, RAMS Bayley into the corner and RAMS into her more! Rhea then brings Bayley out to snap suplex!

Asuka fires body shots, powers out and runs Bayley over! Bayley goes to the apron, she avoids the hip attack and she drags Asuka out to throw her into barriers! Bayley CLUBS Asuka, but Rhea CANNONBALLS them both! Fans fire up as Rhea laughs, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Bayley paces around as Rhea smothers Asuka into the mat with a forearm. Seems Bayley and Rhea now have that understanding, and Rhea sits Asuka up for Bayley to stomp down. Bayley talks trash, Rhea slaps Asuka around, and they drag Asuka up. Rhea bumps Asuka off buckles, then Rhea whips Bayley in, but Asuka puts her on the apron! Asuka dodges Rhea, URAKEN, URAKEN, SOBAT, KICK and URAKEN to an AX HANDLE! But Rhea blocks the whip! Rhea whips Asuka to a corner, but Asuka dodges! ROUNDHOUSE! Bayley runs in but is sent into Bayley! Rhea SLAMS Bayley, but Asuka uses Bayley as a step to BOOT Rhea!

Asuka fires up and fans are with her as she watches Rhea and Bayley sit up. Asuka KICKS Rhea, she KICKS Bayley, then back to Rhea! Another for Bayley! Rhea! Bayley, but she ducks! Roll-up, TWO! Bayley kicks but into an ANKLE LOCK! Bayley flails, reaches out, pulls at Asuka’s hair but that won’t stop this. Rhea gets up and storms over, but Bayley grabs Rhea’s hair! Rhea HEADBUTTS Bayley, and Asuka GERMAN SUPLEXES her!

Asuka avoids a kick from Rhea to ROUNDHOUSE Rhea down! Fans fire up but Bayley drags Asuka out! Bayley hurries back in, she calls to Rhea, and Rhea shakes out the cobwebs. Rhea stands up and Bayley still wants to work together. Rhea says she won’t let Bayley boss her around. Bayley says okay, and then she lunges! Into a choke grip! Rhea know that was coming, but Bayley ROCKS her with a forearm! Rhea ROCKS Bayley, Bayley ROCKS Rhea, repeat! Bayley pulls hair but Rhea throws body shots! Bayley hits back, Rhea throws more! Asuka leaps for a DOUBLE CODE BREAKER!! Cover on Rhea, TWO!! Cover on Bayley, TWO!!

Fans fire up and Asuka hurries to a corner. Asuka climbs but Bayley is after her! They brawl, Asuka sends Bayley down then leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! ASUKA LOCK!!! Bayley flails, reaches out, crawls around with her one free arm, but Rhea returns! Rhea basement dropkicks them both! Cover on Asuka, TWO! Rhea is frustrated but fans rally up.

Winner: Bayley, by pinfall (advances to next week)

Rhea is furious, but she takes it out on Asuka! Rhea kicks Asuka around, then pump handles for the RIPTIDE!! Bayley grins as she moves on, but who will she meet in the #1 contender’s match?

 

Seth Rollins is here!

DC sings for The Visionary as he swaggers his way to the ring. Rollins is here in DC to welcome them to Monday Night Rollins! “you know me, you love me. I am the Visionary, I am the revolutionary, I am Seth… “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins has big news for DC! “One week from tonight, yours truly is going to go one-on-one with The All Mighty Bobby Lashley! And the winner of that there little match will be your new #1 contender to the United States Championship.” And he’d love to say a lot of things to ol’ “Bob,” but it’s not fun if he’s not out here. And DC wants to have fun, right? The fans cheer and Rollins says they had fun singing his song.

Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” But then here comes Lashley! Fans cheer as he walks out on stage in a crimson and black suit to counter Rollins’ sky blue and white one. Lashley goes to the ring with a mic of his own to say, “So, Seth, I’m here. So what would you like to tell me. Now be careful with that.” Rollins wants Lashley to hold on. Lashley just hasn’t been the same since Crown Jewel and that loss to Brock Lesnar. And there’s no shame in losing to Lesnar! Been there, done that. But what is with Lashley’s Lesnar obsession? Is Lashley… scared of Lesnar? Rollins knows Lesnar is bigger and stronger-

Lashley stops Rollins there because he knows Rollins is just trying to get under his skin and rattle his cage. No, no, no! Rollins accepts Lashley isn’t afraid. So then… He must be jealous of Lesnar. That’s it! Because Lesnar’s a bigger star, won more championships. That’s gotta be it. Lesnar had the career Lashley wishes he had. Lashley grabs Rollins by his hair to tell him this is NOT about Lesnar! This is about Rollins, Lashley, and the US Championship that should be around Lashley’s waist. Rollins says okay, but just relax. Bob knows as well as Rollins does that the US title won’t fill the void in Lashley’s heart left by the fact that he can’t beat lesnar.

If Lashley doesn’t get his head right, he can’t get his temper right, and beating him will be a lot easier for Rollins than the first. time. Lashley DECKS Rollins for that! Rollins gets up and they brawls! Fans fire up as Lashley has the edge on Rollins! Lashley throws knees, then he throws Rollins out! Lashley goes out but Rollins jumps on him! Lashley RAMS Rollins into barriers, whips him into more barriers, and DC fires up as Rollins comes back for more! They go around, brawling right on the barriers! Referees and security rush out to stop this! Rollins claws Lashley’s face! The fans want to “Let Them Fight!” and Rollins gets free to CLOBBER Lashley!

The brawling keeps going, Adam Pearce tries to stop this, and Lashley stands down while Rollins slides into the ring. Fans sing “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~” and Lashley storms back in! They brawl in the ring again! Lashley RAMS Rollins into a corner! The hands keep flying but management and referees separate them again. Lashley gets loose, Rollins moves, the SPEAR hits one of the producers! Pearce shouts at Lashley and Rollins says Lashley has done it now! Producer Pete Williams is hurting, will Lashley have to face the consequences?

 

Backstage interview with Austin Theory.

Byron Saxton asks the WWE United States Champion what we just saw in the “absolute chaos” between Rollins and Lashley. Theory says he saw the past. Two former champs are fighting over scraps, oblivious to the fact that the business has evolved and forgotten about both of them. This business lives in the now, where it’s Theory’s time, and he has all the cards! And let’s face it, what’s a couple of challenges to Theory’s reign when the forever is just beginning? But then he turns around into Mustafa Ali! “Forever, huh? Theory, you just love writing checks that you know you can’t cash in. Oh, ‘cash-in,’ you probably don’t like hearing those words.”

Theory says Ali is annoying! He constantly whines and complains about opportunities, then gets beat down. Why doesn’t Ali just quit? Because Ali isn’t like Theory. Ali has to fight for what he has. He has to fight for opportunities! So know this: Theory can put Ali down but he’ll get back up, back in Theory’s face, and become US Champion. Fine! If Ali wants his shot, and his chance to shock the world, then they’ll do this tonight. But after Theory finishes with Ali, Theory never EVER wants to hear the word “opportunity” comes out of Ali’s sorry mouth again. Theory storms off, but will The Beacon bring the end to “The Now” that is Theory’s reign?

 

Raw checks back in with the JBL Poker Invitational.

Lumis still has fat stacks while the others mull over their hands. JBL has his Ugandan whiskey brought in by the waiter, and gives him a great tip. JBL watches as Corbin’s table moves along. Gable folds, a thank yew. But gentlemen, ladies, the game of poker is about intelligence. The intelligence to know when to push forward, and when to walk away. Gallows says, “NERD!” Gable shouts, “SHOOSH!” “NERD!” “SHOOSH!” This goes back and forth and Corbin has them stop. Take some chill pills. Corbin can’t get a ready on the freak show over here with those two shouting nonsense.

Corbin says Lumis has to be bluffing. He sees through those eyes. Lumis has nothing in his hand, or his head, and Corbin will take all his money and send him back to the loony bin where he belongs. Corbin calls! Corbin has a Straight, 5 through 9! Lumis has… a FULL HOUSE! Three Aces, two Jacks! JBL can’t believe it, either! Corbin says it’s been this way all night! Lumis is some kind of savant. Otis likes croissants. No, savants. Well, those are good, too. Lumis has to be a cheater! No way could he beat Corbin! There have to be cards up his sleeves, in those gloves. Gargano, don’t defend him! Corbin is gonna hand Lumis a-

Lumis has an AX! Whoa, okay, easy now. Corbin and JBL accept Lumis is just that good. Meanwhile, Tozawa is cleaning up on his table! But then Tozawa catches Dom trying to palm a few chips! THIEF!! Thief? This is DOM’S show! Whatever he wants, he gets. And if Tozawa has as problem with that, then the Judgment Day has a problem with Tozawa! Oh, yeah? Well, Tozawa doesn’t care! Dom is the problem. The two stand up, and Dom says Tozawa’s almost as short as his deadbeat dad. JBL has these two settle down. No fighting in the poker room. Go outside if you wanna fight. Tozawa will see Dom in the ring! Yeah he will!

Dom and Tozawa back out of the game for now, but who will be the big winner in the ring?

 

WWE United States Championship: Austin Theory VS Mustafa Ali!

The self-proclaimed Now of WWE has always had a big ego, and many times that ego has cost him. Will it cost him everything he’s worked for here tonight? Or will Theory leave The Beacon in the dark after this high stakes showdown?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who truly represents the future of the WWE!

Fans boo Theory as he and Ali tie up. Theory shoves Ali down and tells him Ali’s wasting his time. Ali comes back to headlock, but Theory powers up. Ali thrashes, Theory powers out and runs Ali over. “What’d I say? You’re wasting your time! You’re in the now.” Theory stands Ali up but Ali puts him in the corner. Ali CHOPS, but Theory just scowls through it. Theory CLOBBERS Ali, brushes himself off, and storms after Ali again. Theory digs his knee into Ali, dares him to do something, but lets off as the ref counts. Theory storms around, whips Ali corner to corner, then he runs in. Ali goes up and over, keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirl RANAS!

Theory bails out but Ali dropkicks him off the apron! Ali builds speed, and he DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp and fans fire up! Ali stalks Theory, brings him up, but Theory breaks free. Theory baits Ali and Ali runs in, Theory POSTS him with an alley-oop! “You’re in the now! You hear me? You’re in the NOW!” Theory RAMS Ali into barriers! Theory asks Ali how that feels while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Ali throws haymakers on Theory! Ali backs Theory down to a corner but Theory turns it around. Theory swings but Ali dodges to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Ali whips corner to corner, Theory reverses but Ali slips out and ROUNDHOUSES Theory away! Ali slingshots, somersaults, and NECKBREAKERS! Fans fire up but Theory fireman’s carries! Ali slips off to BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Theory crawls to a corner and Ali stands up. Ali storms over, but into an elbow! Theory goes up but Ali ROCKS him first! Ali climbs up after Theory, to SUPER- NO, Theory blocks! Wait, they tip over and Theory still hits the mat!

Theory flounders up, Ali runs in, tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO!! Theory survives the rough landing then the rougher impact, but Ali is not losing focus yet. Ali hurries to a corner but Theory anchors a foot. Ali stomps him down then climbs back up. Fans rally but Theory trips Ali up! Theory throws haymakers, puts Ali in a Tree of Woe to the outside, and then Theory stomps away on the apron! The ref counts, Theory backs off, only to go back in for more! The ref counts as Theory stomps away. Theory finally gets in the ring, then he drags Ali up to rain down fists! Fans boo, the ref has Theory back off.

Theory snarls but then DOLPH ZIGGLER SUPERKICKS him!!!

Winner: Austin Theory, by disqualification (still WWE United States Champion)

Ali can’t believe it! Theory wins and it isn’t even because of him! Ali gets mad at Ziggler but Ziggler says his beef is with Theory. Ali and Ziggler argue now, but then Theory CLOBBERS them both! Theory rains down fists on Ziggler, then he drags Ali up to POST him! Fans chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” as Theory drags Ziggler up for A-TOWN DOWN! The Show Off cost Ali and didn’t even get the better of Theory. Will Theory stay the now and become the forever of the WWE?

 

JBL is on the phone with someone.

He’s loving this! No one could’ve put on a better poker tournament. The money is everywhere! The Miz then walks in and JBL hangs up. JBL is happy to see Miz, and Miz says there was probably a slight oversight not inviting Miz. Oh, sorry, he didn’t know Miz played cards. Miz can jump in, if he has the 50K. Right… About that… After Miz’s “financial improprieties,” he isn’t very liquid. JBL knows how crypto can be, right? But c’mon, JBL knows Miz is good for it! JBL says he’d love to, but Miz hasn’t been good at paying off debts. Everyone had cash on them. Miz can give him his Rolex! Oh, that is a nice watch… Wait. Miz does know this isn’t real, right?

What?! The second hand ticks… Miz is offended and he hurries off. Well, so much for that. Will Miz find a way to get in on the game where a certain you-know-who is playing?

 

Raw returns and we continue with the poker game.

Corbin says read ’em and weep! Four of a Kind, KINGS! The table can’t believe it, but Corbin says Lady Luck is just on his side. But as Corbin leans over to grab the pot, MORE cards fall out of his sleeve! Corbin accused Lumis and he’s the one cheating?! Corbin says he’s not a cheater, someone put those in there! Styles and Corbin start shoving! JBL stops this, he JUST said no fighting! What is wrong with all of you!? They’re ruining his tournament! Okay then. Corbin, get your gear on and bring the Alphas with you. The OC heads out, will they make Corbin pay for playing dirty? JBL shouts, “What is wrong with these idiots?!”

So… Does Lumis win his table by default? Big tip for the dealer. That was easy! Great job, man! Let’s get this stuff in the bag. Tamina sneaks a few bills for herself. Will Lumis be the big winner by the end of tonight?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Cathy Kelley asks the RawEST Women’s Champion that Bayley is moving on to next week’s #1 contenders match, against whoever wins the second Triple Threat. How does Bianca feel knowing Bayley will get another opportunity? What Bayley did was impressive, but Bianca knows how to handle Bayley. But Bianca would be proud to face any of the women in the Triple Threat matches, even Rhea Ripley, who could’ve handled the loss more gracefully instead of taking her frustrations out on Bianca’s girl, Asuka. Then who does Bianca see winning the second Triple Threat?

Bianca knows Alexa, Becky and Nikki are all dangerous competitors in their own right. Bianca and Alexa grew closer taking on DMG CTRL, but she knows why Alexa was once champion and running the whole division. Nikki, on the other hand, is just unpredictable that could surprise anyone at anytime. And Becky has challenged Bianca more than any rival ever, but at the end, they have to be ready for Bianca. Bianca stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. Will Bianca be ready for whoever it is that comes out the NEW #1 contender?

 

Six Man Tag: The OC VS Baron Corbin & The Alpha Academy!

AJ Styles and the Good Brothers may not have come out the winners against Judgment Day, but they aren’t about to let JBL’s golden boy get the better of them at poker! Will the Original, Official and ONLY Club that matters be Too Sweet in DC? Or will Chad Gable & Otis help the Modern Day Wrestling God continue his winning ways?

Raw returns as JBL leads the way for his protégé. Corbin makes his entrance, followed by “SHOOOOSH~!” The trios sort out and JBL joins commentary. Corbin and Styles start, they tie up and Corbin knees low! Corbin ROCKS Styles, CLUBS him down, then runs to run Styles over! Fans boo but Corbin soaks up the heat. Corbin drags Styles up but Styles JAWBREAKERS! Styles CHOPS and ROCKS and whips, but Corbin reverses. Styles KICKS Corbin, and hits a DDT! Styles tags Karl but Corbin gets away.

QUICK NOTES

A decent line-up. Good to see Top Flight in action after hearing Dante Martin was really hurting after that match with FTR. Good to see Konosuke in action. Reynolds VS Sabian could be a really good one, too. And good to see Kiera Hogan in action now that she’s on her own again. Wouldn’t surprise me if she and Diamante team up to go after The Baddies.
