PLAY BY PLAY

Drew McIntyre opens Raw!

The WWE World Champion heads to the ring, not all that bothered by the loss last week. He welcomes us to the show and the crowd is loud as he gets down to business. In two weeks, Extreme Rules has McIntyre VS Dolph Ziggler for the world title. And last week, the contract signing got crazy, and McIntyre leveled the playing field. McIntyre allowed Ziggler to choose the stipulation. Ziggler could choose a Cage Match where there’s no escape. Or a No Holds Barred, but McIntyre’s fists are already weapons. They could even have a match on a cliff, over a volcano, with sharks armed with laser beams on their heads swimming around, and McIntyre would first wonder where that is. But then he’d still be WWE World Champion at the end!

Ziggler has promised to tell us the stipulation, so get on out here and tell us what it is! Ziggler appears and has McIntyre hold on. This is the Dolph Decision, featuring McIntyre. The world is here to see the stipulation for Extreme Rules. Ziggler isn’t taking his talent down to South Beach, and we’re all going to find out the stipulation is a secret. Wow! Ziggler says McIntyre made a mistake letting him choose, and Ziggler isn’t going to give McIntyre time to prepare. It’s because he’s the same old McIntyre! The backstabber! No, McIntyre is WWE Champion and don’t you forget it! Oh you want to compare resumes? Ziggler’s is bigger! 2014 to 2017, there was a blank page for McIntyre! Why? Yes, he was fired. But McIntyre embraces his comeback story because it inspires others to follow their dreams!

But here’s a reminder, Ziggler. The man you’re talking to is the man who beat Brock Lesnar in five minutes, THEN beat The Big Show! So watch your tone! Oh McIntyre did that all by himself, huh? It’s not always about Ziggler! There are those McIntyre left behind, stabbed in the back and completely forgotten about. Ziggler brought someone else McIntyre did that to. It’s HEATH SLATER!? Slater was released a few months ago, and knows McIntyre from their days in the Three Man Band. Slater says this is an opportunity. Slater’s known McIntyre for over a decade. There’s history between them. Slater remembers McIntyre’s arrival in the States, before he had that “peach fuzz.” McIntyre was “The Chosen One.” But what’s funny is, back then, McIntyre wasn’t that.

But now? This guy? THIS is the Chosen One. Slater sees it, the company sees it, we all see it. But Slater wants McIntyre to remember back to April. Slater was home, with his kids, watching McIntyre VS Lesnar. Talk Less, Claymore, baby. Slater jumped up and even cried for McIntyre’s win. That’s how much Slater loves McIntyre. McIntyre knows Slater has love for him because when McIntyre got released, Slater called him up every day. When Slater came to Florida, he’d hang with McIntyre, his brother. But where has McIntyre been for Slater? Where, McIntyre? Think about this. They haven’t spoken in how long? Exactly, McIntyre doesn’t remember. It was The Bump, the one show Slater got to be on and speak his mind.

McIntyre knows Slater’s family, his kids. And not the 22 kids we pretend Slater has, but the two little girls he does have and that he is here today for, fighting for them. They believe in Daddy. Slater wants McIntyre to know that he was there for him, but McIntyre wasn’t there for Slater. McIntyre promised on The Bump to petition for a match with Slater, and what happened? Still unemployed! #IGotKids isn’t a gimmick! It’s real! This is Slater’s last chance, so he hopes to God that their friendship means something. Slater is here for this opportunity. The crowd cheers for that. Slater wants to have what he deserves, from McIntyre. What McIntyre, as a FRIEND, promised Slater.

McIntyre doesn’t want to fight Slater, but Slater starts shoving. Slater SLAPS McIntyre! “What about now?” McIntyre glares at Ziggler as he tells Slater, “You’re on.” Will Slater prove he deserves a place here?

 

Drew McIntyre VS Heath Slater!

Raw returns and “the unthinkable” has happened! The bell rings and McIntyre circles with Slater. ZIggler distracts McIntyre and Slater fires off! The ref backs Slater off, Slater throws off the shirt, but he turns around into a CLAYMORE! Cover, McIntyre glares at Ziggler, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

The Show-Off’s twisted plan backfires because McIntyre is ready to kick Ziggler’s head off even more than before! Ziggler gets in the ring and gets upset with Slater. Slater gets upset with Ziggler and shoves him over! Slater dares Ziggler to fight, so Ziggler tackles him! Ziggler rains forearms down but McIntyre returns to run him off! Ziggler says he calls the shots, McIntyre claims he’ll rip Ziggler’s head off! What will Ziggler choose as the championship stipulation? Will it even matter?

As for Slater, McIntyre helps him up, and the two friends hug it out. Once 3MB, always 3MB.

 

Backstage interview with Bayley and Sasha Banks.

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions are all over all three brands, and there has definitely been a strength in numbers strategy. Bayley interrupts Sarah to ask why they’re talking to her when they can just talk to the world. The Golden Role Models walk off, laughing all the way. Asuka walks in, furious already. How will she handle those two all on her own? Who says she’s alone? Asuka laughs and dances her way off. What kind of back up does the Empress of Tomorrow have?

 

Raw returns to Bayley and Sasha in the ring.

As they just said, #BayleyDosStraps and #TwoBeltsBanks prefer to talk to the people directly. They’re still feeling great and now the show can truly begin. Money never sleeps, but when you’re the Blueprint #Sasha3Shows alongside her friend, #Bayley3Brands, they are changing the game one day at a time, because they never sleep. When you are as good as these two, once in a generation talents that make it look so easy, all you “sheep” follow after them. Like tonight, Bayley and Asuka, Champion VS Champion. Then at Extreme Rules, it’s Bayley and the “runt,” Nikki Cross, who thinks she can take the title. DING DONG, hello? YOU CAN’T! And you know what else won’t happen? Asuka walking out Raw Women’s Champion. Green mist or not, Sasha will tap her out and have two belts, too! They’re taking over, getting all the gold, and-

Asuka interrupts! Asuka laughs her way down the ramp while also talking back in Japanese. “Two Belts Banks? Sasha…! Sasha…! You are NOT good at math.” And Bayley, Bayley, Bayley. You are NOT ready for Asuka! Asuka’s one to talk! Asuka’s not ready for Sasha humiliating you like she has the last couple of weeks. Asuka says Sasha is not ready tonight, so maybe she- No no no! Bayley sees what’s up. If Asuka has some bright idea, Sasha is ready for anything and anyone! What she got? Well in that case… KAIRI SANE IS BACK! The Kabuki Warriors are reunited, and the Role Models feel like they got duped. Will the Pirate Princess’ return be a victorious one?

 

Sasha Banks w/ Bayley VS Kairi Sane w/ Asuka!

The Boss has to again cash a check Bayley’s mouth wrote, but will the Empress of Tomorrow keep things even like on NXT?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and Sasha puts Kairi in a corner for furious fists! The ref counts, Sasha backs off and the crowd boos. Sasha goes back to Kairi but Kairi hits back! Sasha rocks Kairi with a forearm then brings her up. Sasha CHOPS Kairi then wristlocks for an acrobatic arm-drag! Kairi rolls right to her feet to CHOP Sasha back! Kairi dodges Sasha, CHOPS again, and again, and again! Kairi fires off on Sasha with both hands! The crowd is thunderous as Kairi whips Sasha. Sasha reveres, Kairi goes up and around to headscissor and dropkick Sasha down! Cover, TWO! Kairi grabs Sasha’s arms brings her around and has a straitjacket camel clutch! Sasha endures as Kairi pulls back and leans on the hold.

Sasha stands up, powers out and puts the hold on Kairi! The crowd rallies for Kairi as she endures. Kairi powers up, knees Sasha, then tilt-o-whirls into the Iron Octopus! Sasha endures, manages to stay standing, and powers up to elbow free. Kairi rolls her up, TWO! Sasha ducks Kairi to throw her down by her hair! Cover, ONE! Sasha keeps her cool as Kairi crawls. The crowd rallies up, Asuka cheers for Kairi but Sasha puts Kairi on the ropes to choke! Sasha throws Kairi down and mocks Asuka, which of course only upsets Asuka. They jaw jack at each other, Bayley runs over to shout, “Your partner sucks!” Asuka shoves Bayley down! Kairi throws Sasha out! Kairi builds speed and wrecks both Golden Role Models! The crowd is fired up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Sasha chokes Kairi on ropes. Asuka protests and the ref counts, Sasha lets up at 4. Sasha drags Kairi up but Kairi forearms back! And again! And again! Kairi fires up and whips but Sasha reverses again. Kairi comes back but into a backbraker and sidewalk slam! Cover, TWO! Sasha grows frustrated as Kairi keeps in this. Bayley says it’s fine, and Sasha drags Kairi up. Sasha scoops Kairi, sets her in the corner and chops away! The ref counts, Sasha lets up, for the STOCK DROP! High stack cover, TWO! Kairi toughs it out and Asuka cheers. Sasha digs her knee into Kairi’s back and cranks on an arm. Kairi endures, but Sasha shifts to make it a modified Bow ‘n’ Arrow stretch. The crowd rallies, Kairi endures, but Sasha pulls hair! The ref reprimands but Sasha kicks Kairi away.

Asuka is furious but Kairi kicks back. Sasha stomps her for it, then brings Kairi up to put her between ropes. Sasha knees Kairi from the apron, then grinds her boot in. Sasha lets up to go back in the ring. She brings Kairi around, whips her to a corner, but runs into boots. Sasha turns Kairi sideways again, but the Stock Drop misses! Kiair ax kicks and CHOPS back! Kairi climbs up top, leaps, Flying Kabuki Elbow! Cover, TWO! Sasha survives but Kairi keeps focus. Asuka coaches Kairi, Kairi runs, BLOCKBUSTER! Kairi keeps going, ANOTHER Blockbuster! Kairi brings Sasha up a third time, whips her, Sasha reverses, INTERCEPTOR SPEAR! Sasha rolls to a corner and Kairi is fired up with the crowd!

Kairi marches to the corner, runs at Sasha, Sliding D! Cover, TWO! Bayley is relieved and Kairi is frustrated. Kairi drags Sasha up, Alabama lifts, but Sasha sunset flips! TOW, Kairi sits on it, TWO! Sasha has it, TWO! Sasha BASEMENT METEORA! Cover, TWO!! Bayley is furious and Sasha is beside herself as Kairi survives again. Sasha runs corner to corner at Kairi, Meteora to the back! The crowd boos as Sasha mocks Asuka. Sasha climbs, leaps at Kairi, but Kairi gets under, comes back, trips Sasha to the cross-legged Boston Crab! The Anchor Lock! Bayley attacks with a KNEE!

Winner: Kairi Sane, by disqualification

Asuka attacks Bayley for that one! Asuka clubs away but Sasha drags Asuka out of the ring! They’re 2v1 on Asuka, but Kairi is climbing. Asuka fights back, then sets the Golden Role Models up, SUPER InSANE Elbow! The Kabuki Warriors are fired up as they topple the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! What shape will Bayley be in before she and Asuka go Grand Slam Champion VS Grand Slam Champion?

 

Raw finds a commotion backstage!

Buddy Murphy has attacked Aleister Black! And he stuck the confiscated Mysterio mask on him, just like Seth Rollins did to Humberto Carrillo last week! Speaking of, Rollins steps in and has Murphy stand down. “A damn shame.” With Aleister down, who is there to team with Mysterio later tonight?

 

The Viking Raiders meet up with The Big Show.

Friend, Biggest of Shows! Welcome! Ivar is going to slide down the bowling lane to show everyone how he defeated the Street Profits. Show says that while he likes to have fun, that’s not tonight. Tonight is the Six Man Tag against Randy Orton, The Legend Killer! Yes, we all know what Orton is capable of. And it was devastating to see what Orton did to Edge and Christian. Those two were friends to Show, but were heroes to the Vikings! Edge is even a fellow Viking brother. Speaking of Edge & Christian, the Vikings have been working on their own Five Second Pose.

Show SLAPS Erik on the chest in disapproval. Ivar thinks that’s funny, but then Show slaps him, too! Now the Vikings are serious. “Our Viking ways might be strange to you, but tonight, when we get in the ring… The Raid is on!” GOOD. Will these war machines and the angry giant stomp the Viper, El Idolo and the Lethal Lothario under their feet?

 

Raw presents The Kevin Owens Show!

The Prizefighter returns and he welcomes us back. But before he starts, knowing who his guest his, he already empties the ring of the armchairs. Oh one broke. Oh well. Oh make that two. But now this is someone you wouldn’t expect for KO to invite to his show, given their history, but there is a very good reason for this. So to get right to it, Kevin welcomes “a pretty giant piece of trash,” the Monday Night Messiah, Seth Rollins. Rollins does head to the ring, with Murphy in tow. They join Kevin in the ring, Murphy fetches a mic for Rollins, and Rollins asks what’s going on. He didn’t need to get rid of the chairs. Rollins wants to thank Kevin for having him on his critically acclaimed show. How is that ankle doing, by the way?

Oh the ankle Kevin fractured at WrestleMania? Fine, actually. Better than Rollins’ ego. After all, things haven’t been going that well for Rollins lately. The point Kevin wants to make here is that these two faced each other at WrestleMania 36, and the history between them isn’t that good. But competing against each other at Mania creates a unique bond. Even if it is an enemy, there is a bond between them. So here is a gift to commemorate that moment they created together. Rollins takes a folded up T-shirt, and reveals the KO-Mania shirt! You’re welcome, Rollins. Yes, thanks so much. Rollins throws the shirt away and says he sees what Kevin is doing. Rollins doesn’t care about Kevin, his shirt, or his show.

The reason Rollins is here is to use Kevin’s show as a platform to address the now medically cleared Mysterio. Mysterio is here to compete, so Rollins is formally challenging him to a match at Extreme Rules! They have unfinished business, and it is time to permanently sacrifice Mysterio to the greater good of Raw. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s go ahead and bring up the past. Let’s talk about Mania and the sacrifices Kevin made. Kevin sacrificed his body to get the win. And things haven’t been going well for Rollins? How about things for Kevin and his ankle? Kevin’s been on the shelf while Rollins has risen to prominence! Kevin needs Rollins more than he thinks he does, the same as Raw needs Rollins! Maybe Kevin should consider he’d be getting more out of fighting with Rollins then against him.

The shirts say #FightOwenFights, #JustKeepFighting, but Kevin’s been fighting so long and so hard, perhaps he needs a purpose in his fight. Maybe Kevin should fight for the greater good. But before Kevin can answer, the Mysterios appear! Rey tells Rollins, “You truly believe that Kevin is gonna fall for your BS?” No way. As for that challenge, Rey accepts. Rey assures Rollins that at Extreme Rules, Rollins’ destiny will be in Rey’s hands. Rollins loves this! The business will be finished, but he has to ask Rey, what about tonight’s tag team match? Aleister is… MIA, so to speak. What’s Rey going to do? Face Murphy and Rollins 2v1? Maybe they’ll take his good eye. Or maybe Rey’s son Dominik will lose one instead.

Kevin speaks up. Kevin has a decision on that offer. He will never fight by Rollins’ side, but he’ll fight by Rey’s! If Rey will have him. Well this gets better and better! Then how about this? Extreme Rules, Rey VS Rollins, the stipulation is chosen by tonight’s winners! Well that’s even better! One-Leg Kevin and One-Eyed Rey VS Rollins and Murphy, winner picks the stipulation? You’re on. And then Murphy attacks! Rey jumps in and it’s a brawl! Rey throws Murphy out, Rollins realizes he’s alone and bails out! The show set is thrown out at him but Rollins avoids getting hit. Things sort out as Raw goes to break!

 

Kevin Owens & Rey Mysterio w/ Dominik VS Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy!

Raw returns and Rey is already raining down rights in the corner on Murphy! The crowd is fired up as Mysterio whips but Murphy reverses. Mysterio ducks, springboards and crossbodies Murphy down! Mysterio kicks away on Murphy but Murphy kicks back. Murphy runs, sunset flips but Mysterio slips out to buzzsaw! Murphy bails out but Mysterio wrecks him with a dropkick! Mysterio goes to the apron to leap and huricanrana Murphy into barriers! The crowd fires up as Mysterio glares at Rollins. Mysterio fetches Murphy into the ring then aims from a corner. Mysterio climbs up and leaps, big crossbody! But Murphy rolls through to cover, TOW! Mysterio enziguris back!

Tag to Kevin, he CHOPS Murphy then fires off haymakers! The ref counts, Kevin backs off but taunts Rollins. Kevin CHOPS Murphy again then bumps him off buckles. Kevin fires off body shots, whips Murphy corner to corner, and Murphy hits buckles hard! Kevin stomps Murphy, brings him up and atomic drops to then run and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Kevin waistlocks and drags Murphy up but Murphy elbows free. Tag to Rollins and Rollins clubs away on Kevin. Rollins chops and haymakers, whips, but Kevin reverses. Rollins kicks, Kevin clotheslines and drops the senton! The crowd cheers as Kevin follows Rollins out of the ring. Kevin bumps Rollins off the apron, and then again, before putting him in the ring.

Kevin stalks Rollins, drags him up, and Mysterio tags in. Rollins runs away and tags Murphy! Murphy kicks, Mysterio blocks and spins him. Mysterio waistlocks, Murphy standing switches and back suplexes, but Mysterio lands on his feet. Mysterio speeds things up, and headscissors Murphy to ropes! Murphy gets out before the 619 and Rollins talks trash to Mysterio. Rollins backs down and Mysterio goes back to Murphy, but Murphy enziguris back! Murphy climbs, but then he spots Dominik. Kevin stands in Murphy’s way but Rollins hits Kevin! Murphy and Rollins crowd Dominik, but he can’t hit or he’d disqualify Rey. Rollins knows that and he rakes Dominik’s eyes! Mysterio goes to his son’s side as Rollins runs away again, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins jams Kevin’s knee! The crowd boos as Rollins grinds his forearms into Kevin’s face. Rollins eggs Kevin on as he kicks the bad leg. Kevin falls to ropes but Rollins drags him away to wrench the leg! Kevin endures as Rollins has a Half Crab but the crowd rallies up. Kevin fights to the ropebreak! Rollins lets go at 4, Kevin hits Murphy! Rollins hits Kevin over and over in the corner then scrapes him to the bottom rope. Rollins drags Kevin up and bumps him off buckles. Rollins runs corner to corner to forearm Kevin. Kevin flounders but Rollins gets away, to run corner to corner again. Kevin puts Rollins on the apron but Rollins rocks Kevin back! Rollins springboards, Kevin gets under, SUPERKICK! But the bad ankle brings Kevin down!

The crowd rallies as both men crawl for their corners. Hot tags to Rey and Murphy! Mysterio kicks Murphy away, springboard seated senton! He keeps moving, tilt-o-whirl facebuster! Then a basement dropkick! Mysterio swings on Rollins but Rollins gets away. Mysterio fires off on Murphy but Murphy shoves him away. Murphy goes up and over but Mysterio mule kicks back. Mysterio hops up, Murphy catches him for an Electric Chair, but Mysterio spins to headscissor and POST Murphy! Murphy wobbles into a dropkick that puts him on the ropes. Rollins runs in but he gets put on ropes, too! Mysterio dials it up but Rollins gets out to grab Dominik! Dominik is a hostage but here comes Aleister!

Aleister staggers down the ramp but Rollins gives himself up. Again, if Mysterio’s team is disqualified, Rollins gets to choose a stipulation. Murphy attacks Mysterio from behind! Murphy puts Mysterio in, the ref checks on him, and Dominik goes after Murphy’s eyes!! Dominik gets away with retribution! Murphy staggers into the ring, into a dropkick, and Mysterio dials it up! 619!! Mysterio climbs up, Kevin rams Rollins into barriers! FROG SPLASH! Cover, Mysterio and Kevin win!!

Winners: Rey Mysterio & Kevin Owens, by pinfall

The King of Lucha’s return to the ring is victorious, but that’s only the beginning! Mysterio gets a mic to tell Rollins he has the perfect stipulation for Extreme Rules. It’s very simple: Ojo por Ojo, Eye For An Eye! Rollins damaged Mysterio’s eye and wanted after Dominik’s! So now, Mysterio vows to pull Rollins’ eye out, WITH HIS BARE HANDS!! “Now that’s what I call a sacrifice!” The subtitle, “Horror Show,” might be even more fitting after what Rollins must face. Will either man be able to do what must be done to finally end this?

 

Backstage interview with MVP and Bobby Lashley.

With Apollo Crews out of action again, there is a big question as to what happens to the WWE United States Championship. Lashley takes credit for clamping on his full nelson, breaking Apollo both physically, mental and spiritually. It is only a matter of time before that title reign comes to an end. As for that title, a title MVP made famous, they’re going to do that in style. The future can only be described as “straight up BALLIN’!” That’s what it would’ve been anyway, if Apollo hadn’t disrespected MVP and Lashley showed him the “hurt business.” What is in store for this iconic title?

 

Raw returns as MVP and Bobby Lashley head to the ring.

Despite Apollo being banged up, he will be back for Extreme Rules to defend the WWE United States Championship against MVP. But speaking of championships, a very familiar shape is under the cloth on the pedestal as MVP and Lashley soak up the heat from the crowd. Montel Vontavius Porter says that when Apollo first came to Raw a few months ago, “baby boy was lit.” He was shining bright like a supernova! But he burned out just as badly. Because Apollo came through the stellar orbit of these two superstars. Apollo may have youthful exuberance, but that made him think he was invincible. Ain’t no body invincible when it comes to Bobby Lashley’s full nelson.

MVP wishes he could say he feels guilty, but he doesn’t. He tried to help Apollo, showing him Lashley as an example. Yet Apollo still had “the unmitigated gall” to turn down the mentorship of the GREATEST United States Champion ever. When you disrespect MVP, you disrespect Lashley. That’s a bad move. Now Apollo, when MVP beats you at Extreme Rules, Apollo will no longer be champion. But he will always have the memories. So excuse MVP for just a moment as he unveils the NEW United States Championship belt. MVP already beat Apollo so in a way, he already IS the new champion. MVP promises us all that this third US Championship reign will be as awesome as his first two. So ladies and gentlemen, drum roll please. And the new title is revealed!

A golden eagle and huge lettering! This is a championship befitting a legend like MVP. And MVP can’t wait to beat Apollo so that he can officially be champion. Lashley wants MVP to get his head right. Rolling with Lashley means it’s official when Lashley says it is. They should just crown MVP right now! Lashley picks up the brand new belt and helps MVP put it on. But here comes Ricochet and Cedric Alexander! They aren’t sure what they’re seeing. But you do have to admit, that title looks pristine! But MVP knows the struggle of a champion. He should know better than anyone that he has to earn championships. And he’s talking like he’s a business man? Sorry, he’s losing stacks because Apollo will be back real soon and make sure this fantasy ends.

But in the meantime in between time, Lashley and MVP hurt their friend. So Ricochet and Alexander are going to make sure the #HurtBusiness goes Chapter 11. And it’s a brawl! Lashley and Ricochet settle things from last week, Alexander sends MVP out, and Lashley runs into Ricochet’s dropkick-flip! Double dropkicks from the fast and furious team send Lashley out! Lashley is furious as Raw goes to break.

 

Ricochet & Cedric Alexander VS MVP & Bobby Lashley!

Holla holla, the fast and furious friends of Apollo are taking on the uncrowned United States Champion and the Rocky Mountain Machine! MVP is even in a suit as he starts against Alexander! Will Apollo’s allies get even on his behalf?

MVP puts his necklace and jacket aside but then tags out to Lashley. Lashley circles with Alexander, they tie up, and Lashley waistlocks to SLAM Alexander down! Lashley kicks Alexander then brings him up to put him in a corner. Lashley throws forearms and elbows over and over as the crowd boos. He trips Alexander to grind his boot in, but he lets up at the ref’s count. Lashley drags Alexander up to club him down, then he whips Alexander to ropes. Alexander holds those ropes, boots back and tags out to Ricochet. Alexander enziguris, then mule kicks Lashley for Ricochet’s front kick. Enziguri sandwich staggers Lashley! Ricochet runs corner to corner but is put on the apron. He enziguris again, then springboards only for Lashley to clobber him!

Lashley checks his face, tags out to MVP, and MVP storms over to Ricochet. MVP drags Ricochet up to bump him off the steel steps, and throw into the barriers! The ref counts but MVP puts Ricochet in at 5. MVP stomps Ricochet, tags Lashley in, and Lashley keeps Ricochet from Alexander. Lashley stands Ricochet up in the corner to run and RAM into him! Lashley drags Ricochet up for a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! MVP says they’re going to show what happens when you disrespect him and Lashley. Lashley tags MVP in and they mug Ricochet in the corner. MVP throws body shots on all sides but lets up at the ref’s count. MVP comes back, brings Ricochet back up and snapmares him down for a KICK to the back! MVP wraps Ricochet up with a chinbar and armlock as the crowd rallies up.

Ricochet endures, pries at the holds, and fights back with body shots. Ricochet runs but into MVP’s BOOT! MVP drags Ricochet to a cover, TWO! MVP brings Ricochet over, tags in Lashley, and they mug Ricochet more. Lashley punches Ricochet down and stalks him on the ropes. Lashley chokes Ricochet and grinds his forearm into Ricochet’s face over and over. Lashley lets up only to suplex Ricochet and hold him there! MVP taunts Ricochet as the blood rushes to his head, and at the count of 10, Lashley SLAMS Ricochet down! Cover, TWO! Lashley clamps onto Ricochet but the crowd rallies up. Ricochet fights up, fights back but Lashley shoves and follows, to LIFTING Complete Shot! Tag to MVP, and MVP goes to finish with the cover. TWO and MVP can’t believe it!

MVP drags Ricochet up, suplexes him, but Ricochet slips out! Ricochet kicks, MVP blocks, MVP ducks the enziguri but not the rebound mule kick! MVP flounders and Ricochet crawls, hot tag to Alexander! Alexander runs in, KNEES MVP down, then fires off a strike fest! Alexander dropkicks Lashley down for good measure, then forearms MVP in the corner! Alexander use the ropes for the TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! MVP survives but Alexander keeps on him. He runs into an elbow, Lashley tags in. MVP dumps Alexander out for Lashley to clobber! MVP sucker punches Ricochet for good measure! Lashley puts Alexander in, aims from a corner, and SPEARS him down! Cover, Lashley and MVP win!

Winners: Bobby Lashley & MVP, by pinfall

The All Mighty and the uncrowned United States Champion continue on a roll towards Extreme Rules! And then Lashley puts Alexander in the FULL NELSON! Lashley thrashes Alexander, but Ricochet dropkicks Lashley down! Ricochet and Alexander get away, but is the Hurt Business going to dominate Monday nights?

 

Andrade Almas, Zelina Vega and Angel Garza meet backstage.

La Muneca wants her team to talk. Garza promises what happened last week won’t happen again this week. Almas says it better not. Ric Flair comes by and says they were great last week! Everything they set out to do, they did. Except with the Big Show. But that’s okay. Tonight is a must-do. Otherwise, one, two, three, and even Ric will have to answer to… Oh, Randy Orton walks in. Almas is third generation. Garza, too. So then they have that in common, and for that, Orton respects them even just a little. But tonight is about Show and Orton. When the time is right, Show is all Orton’s, and if they do anything to get in the way of that, or screw anything else up, he will not hesitate to introduce them to the Legend Killer. Understood? Yes. They fist bump and head out. Will the Giant be just one target for The Viper tonight?

 

Backstage interview with the Kabuki Warriors!

Kairi is back and that’s even more of a reason for Asuka to smile. Sasha and Bayley feel they’re the leaders of the Women’s Division, but how does that affect things tonight? Asuka says that’s not going to matter, and Kairi says “nee-san” will always be champion. After Asuka beats Bayley tonight, the Kabuki Warriors will go after those WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships again! Kairi loves the sound of that! Kairi plays the theme on the flute, but will these two be celebrating at the end of the night?

 

Six Man Tag: Big Show & The Viking Raiders VS Randy Orton, Angel Garza & Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega!

The Giant got Erik and Ivar to take this battle serious, but the Apex Predator has put the fear of the three most dangerous letter into the hearts of Vega’s stable. Which side comes out victorious amid the war between legend and Legend Killer?

The crowd is behind Big Show as he starts. The other team sorts itself out, and Garza will start. Garza keeps his distance as he circles, then he goes after a leg. Show CLUBS Garza off the leg! Show puts Garza in a corner to CHOP, and then stand son Garza at the ropes! The ref counts as Show dribbles Garza with a foot, but Show lets up at 4. Show glares at Orton but Garza throws hands back. Show headbutts Garza down! Show stalks Garza and brings him up to CHOP again! Tag to Erik, he tags Ivar in, and the Vikings put Garza in the corner. Garza is fed to knee after KNEE! The crowd fires up with Ivar as he looms over Garza. Ivar drags Garza up, snapmares and drops a fist! Cover, ONE, but Ivar keeps close.

Ivar brings Garza up, clubs him down, and tags in Erik. Erik RAMS into Garza, tags in Show,  and Show stomps Garza in the stomach. Garza crawls to a corner but Show is on him with heavy body shots! Show keeps his eyes on Orton so Orton stays back. Show drags Garza back up, taunts Orton with a tag opportunity, but puts Garza in the corner to CHOP! Tag to Ivar, Ivar brings Garza up to suplex, but Garza slips out and flounders away. Almas tags in and fires off on Ivar, but Garza flounders into Almas and distracts him. Almas turns around into Ivar’s FIST! Ivar drags Almas up, Vega is annoyed, and Show tags in. Ivar scoop slams Almas, Show tags in Erik. Erik scoops Ivar to slam him onto Almas! Show scoops Erik to slam him onto Almas! Cover, Garza breaks it!

Garza shouts at Almas, “You want to lose this match!?” Orton tells Garza to shut up and get out of the ring. Orton is seething as he paces and Garza goes out. Orton shoves him into the barrier and then chokes him. “You pull your head out of your ass!” Orton knows Garza grew up in this business, too, and he has a special place in Orton’s heart because of that. But don’t think Orton won’t drop him if he screws up. Orton lets up on Garza and everyone is speechless as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Almas has Ivar in a chinlock. Almas knees Ivar to the corner and tags in Orton. Orton and Almas stomp away on Ivar then Orton throws European Uppercuts.

Out. Of. Nowhere! This trio of third generation wrestlers outsmarted the Giant and the Vikings, but what will happen when Show finally gets his hands on the Viper?

 

The IIconics talk backstage.

Peyton Royce cannot even explain how excited she is to see Billie Kay take on Ruby Riott. “That woman” is just a mess, like a riot. She has no sense of style, either. Such ugly tattoos. And no friends. Well, Peyton heard from the grapevine that Liv Morgan isn’t returning any of Ruby’s calls. Ouch. Well Ruby has no chance! What a loser. Like, when you think of losers, you think of… Ruby is right behind Billie! Ruby calls them “dumbasses.” The thing is, Ruby never had a problem with them before. It’s just that the sound of their voices make her twitch. Really? Ugh, yes. But while Ruby doesn’t know where Liv is, that’s for the better. Ruby’s focus is all on the IIconics, and that’s very bad. When it’s all said and done, it won’t be IIconic. It’ll be tragic. Ruby heads out to prepare, will she get even with the snobby pair?

MVP meets with Cedric Alexander backstage.

As MVP was saying, he’ll spare the condolences on the loss. But he does have some questions. Oh, really? Like what? Before that, MVP says it takes a lot of heart to stand up to MVP and Lashley. MVP has always been impressed by Alexander. Which is hwy he doesn’t get why Alexander is holding himself back? Why is someone with his abilities staying as Ricochet’s sidekick? Alexander sees what MVP is doing. MVP is trying to divide and conquer. Okay, okay, let’s just say Alexander and Ricochet are equals. Is that why Ricochet has the new WWE 365 special and Alexander doesn’t? If Alexander is fine with being a sidekick on the sidelines, fine. But MVP and Lashley have the Hurt Business, while Alexander is in catering. Bon appétit. Will Alexander chew on these words MVP is putting in his head? Or will he spit them back in MVP’s face?

 

Ric Flair celebrates with Randy Orton backstage.

“Just another victory!” Edge comes out of retirement, gets put back in retirement! Christian gets smart, gets put in retirement! Show comes back from Hollywood, thinking he can get after Orton. Hah! Orton says a win is a win, but he needs kick- Oh no! R-Truth bumps into them! Orton is mad, Truth tires to defuse the situation. Wow, for the Dirtiest Player in the Game, Flair cleans up nice. Maybe too nice, TOZAWA! You can’t trick Truth by disguising yourself as Flair! But then the real Akira Tozawa comes looking and Truth is on the run again. Orton tells Tozawa and his ninjas to stop. They’re looking for Truth? Yes, sir. He went that way. Thank you. Wait, Orton just helped Truth? What’s going on in that twisted mind of his?

 

Ruby Riott VS Billie Kay w/ Peyton Royce!

The one woman riot lost to the Venus Flytrap, but she isn’t about to give up just yet. Will she beat the other half of the IIconic duo? Or will it be 0-2 for the woman with zero friends?

The bell rings and Ruby circles with Billie. Peyton waves a hand in the ring to distracts Ruby, so Ruby stomps the hand! Billie swings but Ruby dodges and fires off. Ruby goes to run, Billie reels her in but Ruby elbows her away. Ruby runs into Billie’s BOOT! Cover, TWO! Shades of Kay is not enough and Billie is furious. Billie brings Ruby up by her hair ad puts her in a corner to stomp away. The ref counts, Billie backs off, but comes back to dig her boot into Ruby’s face. The crowd boos, Billie lets up as the ref reprimands, but Billie brings Ruby up by her hair again. Billie throws Ruby with the scoop Northern Lights! Cover, TWO! The IIconics are annoyed but Billie keeps Ruby down and says, “You are nothing!”

The crowd rallies for Ruby even as Billie laces the legs for a Bow ‘n’ Arrow stretch! Ruby endures, pries at the hold, but Billie cranks back. Ruby brings the chinbar off and pops out to cover! TWO, but Ruby blocks the kick to ROCK Billie with a forearm! Ruby gets around Billie, but Billie standing switches. Ruby bucks Billie away, elbows back, and goes up to DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Ruby kicks Billie down, adjusts, but Peyton jumps up on the apron. Ruby swipes at Peyton so she stays back, but Billie throat chops! Billie brings Ruby down for a SUPER SOLE FOOD! Then, fisherman SIT OUT SPINE BUSTER! Cover, Billie wins!

Winner: Billie Kay, by pinfall

The IIconics work together even when in singles matches! Peyton raises Billie’s hand in victory and then demand the referee does the same. Will Ruby ever get even with these two?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley and Banks.

Bayley is preparing for her match with Asuka, but does she feel the stakes are higher now that the Kabuki Warriors are hoping to have a shot at their tag titles? You mean Asuka’s stupid idea that she even has a chance tonight? Asuka’s lucky Bayley doesn’t slap that green face paint off to last week, let alone worry about next week. The Kabuki Warriors need to accept they’ll never be tag team champions ever again. If the only way to do that is to accept the challenge, then challenge accepted! Bayley can’t believe Sasha but Sasha says there is no team that can touch them. People need to respect that! Right, right. So if Bayley needs to beat Asuka to show the sheep who the best is, which is Bayley, then that’s what she’ll do. Now go away so they can get ready. Charly leaves and the best friends head off. Who will prove themselves the better Grand Slam Women’s Champion?

 

Champion VS Champion: Asuka w/ Kairi Sane VS Bayley w/ Sasha Banks!

Both the Empress of Tomorrow and the former Hugger have held the NXT Women’s Championship, the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, and clearly the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships. This is only the fourth time these two have met 1v1, and it is at a pivotal time before both titles are on the line at Extreme Rules. Will we see who the greater Grand Slam Champion is?

Raw returns, and Nikki is part of commentary! She promises to be nice so security has reason to let her stay. Nikki is excited, but then gets very upset seeing Bayley make her entrance. But she again promises to behave. Will she keep that promise for the whole main event?

Bayley and Sasha see Nikki on commentary, so of course they provoke her. Nikki has Samoa Joe “hold her back,” and then apologizes for her temper. Nikki then gets excited again as Asuka makes her entrance. The bell rings and Bayley shows off her belts. Nikki wants Asuka to beat Bayley up, Bayley and Asuka circle and tie up. Bayley waistlocks, Asuka gets to ropes but Bayley fires off! The ref backs her off, but Bayley headlocks and grinds Asuka down. Asuka fights back, powers out and follows to then run Bayley over! The crowd cheers and Asuka speeds things up. Asuka rolls, Bayley dodges and follows, but runs into a takedown! Asuka wants the arm, Bayley bails out, and Sasha keeps Kairi back. Asuka baseball slides but Bayley blocks and spins her for a knee!

Nikki shouts at Bayley to not come within six feet of her, but Bayley walks up and slaps the headset off her! Nikki goes nuts and security keeps her back! Nikki tries to get at Bayley by any means necessary, so security takes Nikki away! Bayley and Sasha laugh, but then Bayley jumps into Asuka’s KNEE! Sasha’s jaw drops while the Kabuki Warriors are fired up, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again, Asuka yanks Bayley’s arm and wrenches it for an armlock. Bayley endures, fights up and throws forearms. Asuka shoves Bayley, hip tosses her down then KICKS her in the back! Asuka runs. Bayley ducks the kick and trips Asuka up. Bayley clubs Asuka over and over, then dribbles her off the mat! Sasha gloats for Bayley but Kairi coaches Asuka. Bayley drags Asuka up, yanks on her arm now, then whips. Asuka reverses, Bayley goes up and arm-drags, then elbows Asuka down! Cover, ONE, but Bayley drops knees! Cover, ONE, but Bayley runs to basement clothesline! Cover, ONE!! The crowd rallies as Bayley bumps Asuka off barriers. Bayley stomps away then drags her back up to a snapmare. Bayley wraps on a chinlock but Asuka endures.

The crowd rallies up, Asuka fights to her feet, fights back and then rolls Bayley to a cover! TWO, Bayley CLOBBERS Asuka! Cover, TWO! Bayley grows frustrated with the ref but she drags Asuka back up. Bayley throws Asuka out then distracts the ref. Sasha creeps closer but Kairi keeps her back. Bayley gets out to tell Kairi to back off, but Kairi helps Asuka up. The ref warns Sasha to stay on her side, Bayley goes for her daredevil dropkick! The Kabuki Warriors both avoid it, and Asuka ROUNDHOUSES Bayley down! Asuka drags Bayley up and in, covers, TWO! Asuka keeps her focus and the crowd rallies up again. Asuka KICKS Bayley, and KICKS, and KICKS! Bayley flounders into more kicks and Asuka runs to SLIDING ENZIGURI! Cover, TWO!

The crowd fires up for Asuka as she keeps on Bayley. Bayley flails, elbows free of the waistlock and forearms Asuka more. Bayley whips, Asuka goes up and missile dropkicks back! Cover, TWO! Bayley bails out again and Sasha regroups with her. Asuka purses Bayley around the way and into the ring, but Bayley catches Asuka for the rope guillotine catapult! Asuka crawls to a corner but Bayley gives her another guillotine! Cover, TWO! The crowd rallies but Bayley mocks it. Bayley kicks Asuka out, takes her time following after, and she knocks Asuka down! “You like that?” Bayley high fives Sasha before bringing Asuka back up and in. Cover, TWO! Bayley drags Asuka up to throw her back out, but Asuka fights back! Bayley flapjacks Asuka off the desk!

“I’m still serving it up!” Bayley hops on commentary and Sasha joins in. You hungry for what Bayley’s serving up? “It tastes so GOOD!” The Golden Role Models are laughing it up as Raw goes to another break.

Raw returns once more and Bayley is wrenching Asuka’s neck. Asuka endures as Kairi and the crowd rally up. Bayley elbows Asuka down then clamps on a chinlock. Sasha taunts Asuka to her face and Bayley bounces Asuka’s head off the mat! Cover, TWO, and Bayley is annoyed again. Bayley drags Asuka onto the ropes to choke her!

Asuka sits up in the corner, Bayley runs in and hits a back elbow! The crowd rallies, Asuka hits back, but Bayley knees low. Bayley clubs her down and grinds forearms into her face! The green face paint is definitely all but gone. Asuka pie faces back and even kicks. Bayley drops elbows on Asuka, but Kairi coaches Asuka up. Bayley pie faces Asuka but Asuka gets mad now. Bayley keeps pushing her, mocks the dance, so Asuka fires off palm strikes! Asuka back hands but Bayley forearms! Bayley runs into a back elbow! And a BOOT! Asuka hits a CODE BREAKER! Both women are down and the crowd is thunderous! Kairi rallies with them as Asuka stands up. Asuka runs at Bayley, DROPKICK! Pop-up knee!

Asuka survives and the Golden Role Models are furious!

Bayley drags Asuka up, brings her through the ropes, and Sasha fetches some water. “You thirsty?” Sasha brings the water to Bayley and she takes a gulp, to then splash Asuka in the face! But wait! Nikki is in the crowd!! That scares Bayley into the ring, into the ASUKA LOCK!! Bayley flails, rolls back to a cover, TWO!! Asuka rolls Bayley around, still in the hold! Bayley claws at Asuka’s arms, Sasha jumps in, but Kairi INTERCEPTORS! Bayley gets up and pops out, but Asuka sits on the victory roll! ASUKA WINS!!

Winner: Asuka, by pinfall

The Raw Women’s Champion defeats SmackDown’s! Nikki Cross grins as she has an edge on Bayley, and Asuka has the edge on Sasha. But before Extreme Rules, will #BayleyDosStraps drop down to uno when the Golden Role Models have to put up another fight against the Kabuki Warriors?


My Thoughts:

A pretty great episode for Raw, especially by the end. For one, quite the surprise to see Heath Slater back given everything that’s been happening. Slater had a great promo, but clearly in a perfect world, it would’ve been with Jinder Mahal pushing the issue. But Ziggler still gets good Heel heat being the one forcing this, but also heat for not revealing his stipulation. I honestly don’t know what it could be, but I’m confident McIntyre and Ziggler do it justice. Meanwhile, we have quite the escalation in the Rollins story. It was a great move to have a substitution in the tag match, Kevin did great with Rey, Rollins and Murphy. The “Eye for an Eye” is fitting, but clearly there’s going to be some level of cinematography used to kayfabe someone’s EYE BEING PULLED OUT! I can’t wait to be freaked out by that.

The United States Championship story including Ricochet and Cedric Alexander, two of MVP’s previous prospects, is a good move. That new championship belt sure is shiny, and I appreciate the face plate is bigger than the previous, but I feel like the lettering and the eagle take up too much space, you can barely tell the star spangled banner is there. And I feel like even if Apollo wins at Extreme Rules, he takes that belt for his own. MVP trying to turn Alexander against Ricochet is an interesting move, we will have to wait and see how it turns out. The Six Man Tag was good stuff, and Orton was pretty scary grabbing Garza by the throat to get him to focus on the match. If we end up with a new Evolution with Orton in the HHH role, I feel like Garza is already in the Orton role of being the successful one that gets dumped and becomes Face.

Orton’s interaction with R-Truth and Tozawa was an interesting one, too. I almost thought Orton was going to hurt Truth and make it easier for Tozawa, but instead Orton keeps Truth unharmed. If Orton takes Show out with Extreme Rules, will he go after Truth just for the hell of it? He does need something to do while waiting on Edge, and Truth has done quite a lot in his career. He hasn’t been a world champion in the WWE but he was a big hit in TNA/Impact, and has held many other titles. At the very least, does Orton weirdly respect Truth? And then with Ruby, she loses again to keep things going for her story. There has to come a point when Liv hears her out, they team up again and they get the better of the IIconics.

The story of the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships continues to take some interesting turns. There was huge speculation on Kairi Sane’s status with the company, and no one would blame her for wanting out. But it was great timing for her to return and help Asuka. The Kabuki Warriors both have great matches with the Golden Role Models, but especially Asuka and Bayley in the main event. Nikki Cross also had a great part to play during all this, and her spooking Bayley was a great cherry on top for that segment. The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match next week for the go-home Raw is going to be incredible, but also a bit telling as to how things go on all levels, not just for Extreme Rules.  I don’t see the Kabuki Warriors winning with Kairi set to return home to Japan, Stardom and her husband. She’s probably taking the pin so that the math on Asuka VS Sasha is not affected. In another timeline, the Kabuki Warriors would win, Kairi would go after Bayley’s belt, and we’d have THREE Joshi talents holding the singles titles all at once.

My Score: 8.7/10

Rey Mysterio & AJ Styles VS The Judgement Day!

The King of Lucha has so far failed to reach his son, Dominik. And the Phenomenal One has so far refused to give in despite his former friend, Finn Balor, reaching out to him. With an I Quit match between Finn and Edge this Saturday at Extreme Rules, will the Prince and the Punisher make Rey give up on Dom and Styles give up on his pride? Or will Rey & Styles get their pound of flesh before the Rated R Superstar gets his?

Before the match, the Judgement Day get mics as fans in St. Paul boo. Finn says, “Eleven years ago, Edge was medically forced to quit.” Rhea adds a sarcastic, “Aww.” Finn says against all the odds, Edge fought back with strength and determination, and he overcame and returned to doing what he loves most, and that is performing in the ring for all the fans. Priest says, “Let’s hear it for Edge, huh?” Finn says, “But as with most things in life, you can only outrun fate for so long. Judgement catches up to all of us. And at Extreme Rules, I am gonna act as the cruel hand of fate that reminds Edge he doesn’t belong anywhere near a ring that I’m standing in!”

Rhea laughs but fans boo. Finn says he’s doing Edge a favor cuz he’s a nice guy. Finn will beat Edge so bad that he’ll be down and out and he’ll be forced to utter the words, “I QUIT!” Priest tells Finn that he has to say, Priest is so excited to witness firsthand a beating so bad that Edge does have to say “I Quit.” And let that serve as notice to anyone that wants to step to The Judgement Day! They will always rise. And that goes especially for their opponents tonight, AJ Styles & Rey Mysterio. Fans chant, “Who’s Your Daddy?” at Dom but Rhea whispers something to him. Dom says, “I’ll tell you exactly who my daddy is, and it’s not Rey Mysterio.”

Dom tells “Jefe, I hate you. I hate you so much. You lied to me my entire life. And I have a new family now, thanks to the Judgement Day.” Finn says speaking of family, his old friend, AJ Styles! Styles, Finn could’ve ended you last night- No, not last night! Last week! He’s so mad at Styles he’s messing up! But Finn could’ve ended Styles but he chose not to. And do you know why? Because Styles is Finn’s friend. The offer is still extended. But trust Finn, he’s not a bad guy, so don’t make him do bad things! Or else the Judgement Day will start by opening up- Wait! Here comes Styles! The Phenomenal One and the King of Lucha make their entrances, and this battle begins!

Rey and Styles don’t wait for a bell, they brawl with Priest and Finn already! Styles whips Finn but Dom and Rhea get Finn outta there. Only for Rey to RANA him! Styles clotheslines Priest out of the ring to the SLINGSHOT FOREARM! Fans fire up as #REYJ stand tall already. Finn is seething as he glares at Rey but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and the match is officially underway as Finn whips Rey to a corner. Finn snarls, runs in but into an elbow! Rey runs and RANAS Finn again! Rey then runs at the corner but is put on the apron. Rey GAMANGIRIS back, goes up top and SEATED SENTONS! Rey keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges and then tilt-o-whirl RANAS! Finn staggers to the corner and Priest tags in. Rey dares Priest to bring it, then goes after Priest at the ropes! Priest shoves Rey away, Rey ducks ‘n’ dodges but Priest avoids the crossbody! Rey flops, stands up, and Priest BOOTS him down! Cover, TWO! Rhea coaches Priest and he whips Rey into the corner.

Priest runs to back elbow! Tag to Finn, they mug Rey, and Finn snap suplexes Rey for Uno Amigo! And then another for Dos Amigos! Fans boo as Finn gives us Latino Heat, and he finishes THREE AMIGOS! Cover, TWO! Finn is annoyed but fans rally up as Rey stays in this. Finn drags Rey up, puts him against ropes, but Rey holds ropes to block the whip. Finn gets Rey loose to whip and slide him out of the ring! Rey hits the floor and Rhea is there to taunt him. The ref starts a ring count but Priest drags Rey up to scoop him. Priest fakes a Snake Eyes on the desk to SNAKE EYES off the apron!

Fans boo but Priest tags Finn back in. Finn waits on Rey as he crawls in. Finn stomps away at the ropes, then lets off as the ref counts. Rey crawls but Finn drags him up to snapmare and chinlock. Finn grinds Rey, leans on the hold, and fans rally up. Rey fights, throws elbows, and JAWBREAKERS free! Rey reaches out but Finn keeps him from Styles! Finn knees low, whips Rey to ropes, but Rey wheelbarrows and BULLDOGS! Fans fire up but Rhea freaks out as both men are down! Finn and Rey crawl, hot tags to Priest and Styles Styles fires off the Phenomenal Blitz! Then the SLIDING FOREARM! Priest flounders but fans fire up!

Styles clotheslines in the corner, fireman’s carries Priest, but he drops Priest as Finn gets in. Styles DECKS Finn, goes back to CHOP Priest, then he PELES Priest!

Styles endures, pushes to a cover, TWO! Styles hooks Priest’s leg and rolls him, but Priest rolls through to DECK Styles! Priest stands Styles up, springboards, but into an ATOMIC DROP! And then Styles PELES again! Fans fire up and both men crawl again, but Rhea is lurking! Finn distracts and Rhea trips Rey off the apron! Fans boo but Priest drags Styles away to then LARIAT! Tag to Finn, he and Priest whip Styles, but Styles blocks a kick!

Styles sends Priest’s kick into Finn’s stomach, and then reels them both in for a DOUBLE DDT! Fans fire up as Styles, Finn and Priest are all down, but Rhea eggs Rey on. Then Dom stands in the way and eggs Rey on! Dom kneels and dares Rey to hit him! Rey says this is not the time. But then Rhea CLOBBERS Rey while the ref is checking Priest! Rhea dusts herself off and Styles sees what happened. But then Finn SHOTGUNS Styles down! Finn goes up top, COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Judgement Day wins!

Winners: The Judgement Day, by pinfall

Rey can’t keep focus with Dom in his head, and that costs the team! Styles is upset and Rey apologizes, but then Styles shoves Rey down! Dom may be in Rey’s head, but is Finn getting in Styles’? Wait, then Finn CLOBBERS Styles! He, Priest, Dom and Rhea all stomp away on Styles, and Finn keeps saying, “I’m your friend! I’m your only friend! Why don’t you listen to me?!” Fans boo but Finn drags Styles up, to feed him to Priest’s SOUTH OF HEAVEN CHOKE SLAM!! If this is how Finn treats a longtime friend, just how far will he go to end an enemy?

 

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

Kevin Patrick finds The All Mighty as he’s making his way into the arena, and congratulates him on his three month reign. A dominant US Championship reign, but what’s next? Has it been three months already? Well, Lashley’s legacy is solidified but he will not become complacent. He said it once and he’ll say it again: It isn’t the title that makes the man, it is the man that makes the title. So three days, three months, three years, his mentality won’t change. Lashley knew what it takes to get here. He’s been pushed by the industry’s best and he’s beaten them all. McIntyre, Reigns, Lesnar, and Rollins.

So what’s next? Lashley wants someone who had the same hustle and desire that he had to get here. Someone with that mentality is what Lashley is after. Well, then, Mustafa Ali has plenty of desire. But for some reason, he’s still at the back of the line, waiting to be called. But he is done waiting. Ali is done! He is stepping up to the front of the line, and he wants an opportunity now. Right now! Okay, Lashley sees the hustle, the grind. Just keep it up and Lashley will make sure Ali gets that opportunity. NO! Ali isn’t asking! He’s demanding an opportunity! Lashley says people are getting too comfortable disrespecting him. If Ali wants his opportunity, he’s got it!

Will the Beacon regret getting the All Mighty’s attention? Or is he going to make the most of this opportunity he made for himself?

 

Sami Zayn and Jimmy Uso are backstage!

And they’re cracking up about something. Something about the couch and the chair being on fire but Sami didn’t see it so he was still dancing. Solo Sikoa is there and doesn’t seem quite as amused as Jimmy by this story. Sami’s friend runs in with a fire extinguisher, asks where his dog went, and Sami says, “I’m right here.” HA! Jimmy wishes he was there, that sounded like a good time. But then Jey storms in and Jimmy clams up. Sami says hey, Jey. What’s so funny? Sami says it’s not that important. Right, y’all’re here having a good time when they’re supposed to be handling business! Jimmy says relax, they’re just joking.

Sami says no, Jey is right. This is business. The Bloodline has to let everyone know that next week, the Tribal Chief is coming as part of the Raw season premiere. Right! Sami says the Honorary Uce can lead by example. Let’s put some fools on notice! YEET! Let’s go! Oh hey, look here. Sami addresses the Street Profits and lets them and all of Raw know. Next week, the Bloodline will be here with the Tribal Chief, so prepare to acknowledge him. Montez Ford tells Angelo Dawkins, “Look who it is! It’s the Honorary Uce! The hype man of the century, Sami Zayn! Along with the Bloodline, walking around Monday Night Raw like they own the arena.”

You don’t own anything, Sami! In fact, there’s only two things the Bloodline needs to acknowledge, and that’s DEEZ- No, whoa, hold on. Don’t do ’em like that, fam. Jimmy says no, finish it. Deez what? Say something disrespectful and get two matching boots, Tez. He of course means the bad leg the Profits gave Ford the last time they faced off. Dawkins says Jey’s got a lot of bass in his voice. How about Dawks breaks off a boot in Jey’s ass? Solo has everyone step back. The Street Champion dares Dawkins to try that on him. Then say less, fam, Dawks will see you out there!

Sami says that’s good, see you out there, fam. The Bloodline’s Enforcer is ready, will he tear into Dawkins like he did Ricochet and Moss last Friday?

 

Bobby Lashley VS Mustafa Ali!

The Rocky Mountain Machine has reigned for three months, and looks to keep going and going and going. But he won’t stand for those thinking he’s some big pushover. Will he turn out the lights on The Beacon? Or will Ali catch Bobby off guard here tonight?

Lashley drag Ali up and gut wrenches him for the CLIFFHANGER! Cover, TWO?!? Lashley is growing frustrated with Ali, but Ali crawls and drags himself up. Lashley tells Ali to stay down, “You don’t want this.” Ali SLAPS Lashley! Lashley’s pissed now! Lashley TOSSES Ali out!

Lashley goes out, drags Ali up, and fireman’s carries to POST him! Ali flies away but Lashley refreshes the count. Lashley hauls him up again, and POSTS Ali again! Lashley refreshes the count again, hauls Ali up for a third time, and TOSSES him into the timekeeper’s area! Lashley goes into the ring to let the count handle Ali. Ali crawls, the count is 5 of 10, but Ali flounders. We’re at 8, then 9, but Ali is in at 9.999!! Lashley is more confused than anything! What is Ali thinking? Lashley aims from the corner, runs in, and SPEARS Ali!! But that’s not all! Lashley is going to teach Ali a lesson with the HURT LOCK!! Ali refuses to give up, but he fades out! Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by submission

Lashley has a mighty body, but Ali shows he has a mighty heart. Ali still lost, but did he at least win Lashley’s respect? Lashley goes back to Ali as he sputters around. Lashley drags Ali up, but SETH ROLLINS attacks! And CURB STOMPS Lashley!! The Visionary laughs as he drags Lashley up and CURB STOMPS him onto the belt!! The Visionary gets revenge for not becoming WWE United States Champion. And then just because he can, CURB STOMP for Ali to the floor! Rollins is going to hang around because he has a face-to-face with Matt Riddle, but there is a No Physicality Agreement in effect. Will the Visionary and the Bro stick to that agreement?

 

Raw returns with Rollins in the ring.

Last week, after Raw went off the air, Rollins instigated another brawl with Matt Riddle, which is why there’s the No Physicality Agreement, and why Daniel Cormier will be the Fight Pit’s special guest referee! But Rollins is all smiles as he says, “Well now that we have cleared Bobby Trashley from the ring, HAHAHAHA, we can get on with this evening’s festivities. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Monday Night Rollins! And I am your host for this evening. I am a visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth…” “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” “And this Saturday, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I go one on one with the Original Bro… Matt Riddle.”

It’ll be in a match that is soon to become synonymous with Rollins. “Ladies and gentlemen, behold: The Fight Pit.” The narrator of this video package says, “As animosity reaches its peak and hatred goes beyond extreme, the endurance of one’s will is put to the test in one of the most barbaric structures in WWE History. No ring ropes, only steal. No doors, no pinfalls, no escape. The only way to win is by submission or knockout. A blank canvas built for torment, painted only by destruction and devastation. Where your only weapons are your skills and your ability to absorb pain. Toughness is showcased. Careers are altered. But in the end only one will have their hand raised in victory. But neither will ever be the same again.”

Rollins says, “Oooh~! The things I’m gonna do to Riddle inside the Fight Pit. I’m gonna show him what I just showed Bobby Lashley, what I showed Cody Rhodes, what the entire world already knows, and that is I am the most dangerous man in the history of this industry. But that’s Saturday, and we’re here in St. Paul tonight. And I’m scheduled to go face to face with Matt Riddle, so let’s not waste anymore time, Riddle! I know you’re back there scootering around, so why don’t you scoot you annoying face out here so it can piss me off in person.” Fans boo Rollins but “Bro…” Here comes Riddle!

Riddle has a mic to say, “Bro, bro, bro.” Rollins says there he is! No scooter? Aww. Well there’s the guy whose face Rollins will smash this Saturday. Come and pay your respects to the King of the Fight Pit! Riddle asks Rollins what he’s even talking about. Riddle needs to remind Rollins that he’s never BEEN in a Fight Pit before. Riddle has! Well Rollins reminds Riddle that tonight, there is the No Physicality Agreement. Fans boo and Rollins says he knows they want to see them fight, but if Riddle so much as lays a finger on Rollins, the match will be off. Riddle says don’t worry, he won’t put much stitches in that pretty little forehead.

Riddle is actually going to give Rollins an educational lesson on the Fight Pit. Because Riddle won’t just hurt Rollins, he won’t just beat Rollins, Riddle is gonna kill Rollins on Saturday. When Riddle beats Rollins’ lifeless body with elbows and fists and Daniel Cormier has to pull Riddle away and raise his hand in victory, the fans won’t be singing Rollins’ song, it’ll be “BRO~ OHHH~ OHHHHH~!” Riddle gets in Rollins’ face about it but Rollins laughs it off. Until the fans echo it! Rollins says Riddle has it twisted! Even though Riddle and Cormier come from the same place, Cormier isn’t on Riddle’s side. Cormier is a fan of Rollins!

But Rollins has to admit, “Bro,” Riddle has a nice signing voice. Does he sing his kids to sleep at night? “Oh… That’s right. You’re not allowed to see your kids anymore, are you?” Rollins laughs and dares Riddle to take a shot. Wait! He can’t! Because they have their big money match and Riddle needs all the cash he can get. Cuz let’s face it, child support can get expensive. Rollins laughs in Riddle’s face but Riddle tells him his breath is KICKING. But here’s a question for Rollins: When was the last time he held a title? Oh, right! Last time he even fought for one, it was against his boy, Roman, and he choked Rollins out.

Or remember when Rollins last main-evented Mania? Oh wait, he hasn’t. But his wife, Becky, sure has! And there’s a trend here. Seems Rollins comes up second to Roman, to Becky, and this Saturday, he’ll be second to Riddle! Fans fire up for that one but Rollins is fired up. They each dare the other to throw hands but Cormier pops in via the titantron! Cormier says enough. We’ve watched you two whine, argue and complain for months. Enough! This behavior has been insane, we’re all tired of it. The parking lot, the arena, all around the world! For all the people wondering, yes, this is Daniel Cormier. He is one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time, he is THE Double Champ.

Matt, listen, bro. They go way back as UFC fighters. Rollins, Cormier has admired him from afar, ever since he won that first world title. But as the whole world is fed up, so is Cormier. Someone told them they’re in a Fight Pit, and Cormier’s down for that. He lives in the cage, he loves the cage. But there has to be a third man. Can’t be any ol’ ref, so WWE called ya boi, DC, and he will lay down the law to make sure only one of them makes it out of the pit and we put an end to this. That’s what Cormier plans to do. So no more yapping, go train hard and train smart, and we’ll see you both in Philly. Fans fire up for that, but Rollins flicks Riddle’s hat away. Who survives when it’s TIIIIIME?!

 

Candice LeRae comes across Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss & Asuka.

They all say hey and wish Candice luck against Dakota Kai. Bianca wants Candice to make sure she shows Damage Control what the Poison Pixie is made of. Candice thanks Bianca and vows to do just that. She heads to gorilla, will she take control against DMG CTRL?

 

The Miz is on the phone with Maryse.

The Hollywood A-Lister tries to get his “beautiful, gorgeous, sexy wife” to hear him out. It is being handled. This B List horror film ends tonight. This lowlife has broken into their home, attacked Miz while wearing a hockey uniform, and cost both Miz and Ciampa the US Championship. Where even IS Ciampa?! But Miz is not leaving until he gets assurances that something is being done about “you know who.” Nothing, and Miz means nothing, will ruin his birthday next week. Maryse presents: The Miz’s Birthday Bash, Live in Brooklyn! And there will be no unwanted surprise appearances from “He Who Shall Not Be Named.”

But speaking of, Dexter Lumis is creeping in from the back door! Someone calls to Miz and he storms over, narrowly avoiding Lumis’ grasp! Miz tells the staffer to shoo, he’s on the phone with his wife. Miz gets gushy with Maryse about saying bye, but Lumis is still lurking. Will the Tortured Artist ruin things despite all of Miz’s preparations?

 

Candice LeRae VS Dakota Kai w/ Damage Control!

Mrs. Wrestling, the Poison Pixie, came back with a strong win over the Almost SuperHero, and now she takes on one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! Will Candice take Dakota for a Wild Ride? Or will #CobraKai be immune to sting Candice first?

The bell rings and Candice circles with Dakota. They tie up, Dakota gets around and she shoves Candice. Dakota taunts Candice then uses ropes as a defense. Candice backs off, but Dakota rushes in to waistlock. Candice switches, Dakota hooks a leg to trip her, and runs. Candice ducks the boot, rolls Dakota up, TWO! Dakota swings, into a backslide! TWO, and Candice arm-drags Dakota down! Candice has an armlock and she grinds Dakota. Dakota endures, fights up, but Candice arm-drags her again. Dakota is frustrated but Candice keeps on the arm. Bayley & Iyo coach Dakota and she fights up.

Dakota powers Candice into a corner, goes side to side, but Candice dodges the boot to bump Dakota off buckles! Candice snapmares and NECK SNAPS to then jackknife! TWO but Candice DROPKICKS Dakota down! Dakota goes to the apron, fans rally but Dakota avoids the shoulder. Candice avoids the boot to smack Dakota off the corner! Dakota falls to the floor and crawls to the ramp. Candice builds speed, but Dakota hurries out of the way. Candice frowns but she WRECKS Dakota with a dropkick! Bayley protests but Candice springboards to CROSSBODY! Direct hit and Dakota is down while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Dakota has Candice in a motorcycle stretch. Candice fights up and turns around to arm-drag Dakota away! Dakota staggers up, Candice RAMS into her, then elbows her! Dakota runs back in to BOOT Candice down! Cover, TWO! Dakota is frustrated but she slaps Candice around. She sits Candice up for Kawada Kicks! Fans boo but Bayley cheers. Dakota dusts her boots off to then scuff Candice around. Bayley taunts Candice that she’s gonna call Baby Wrestling, little Quill Gargano, and tell her mom’s gonna be late getting home. Candice gets mad and pie faces Dakota, but Dakota SCORPION KICKS!

Dakota puts Candice in a corner, runs Around the World, but Candice BOOTS first! Fans fire up while both women are down! Dakota flails and checks her nose while fans rally. Candice stands, she ROCKS Dakota with a forearm! And again! And then CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS again! Candice backs Dakota down with fast hands! The ref counts and Candice lets off in the corner, but fans fire up! Candice runs in to back body block! And snapmare to a step-up SENTON! Cover, TWO! Bayley and Iyo keep cool as they coach Dakota. Dakota shoves Candice, Candice tilt-o-whirls into an IRON OCTOPUS!

Dakota endures and DMG CTRL freaks out! Dakota fights to a corner and she RAMS Candice into buckles! Dakota kicks Candice, then runs in, but into another BOOT! Candice climbs up but Dakota BOOTS her! Dakota climbs up, CLUBS away on Candice, then stands Candice up. Candice fights the superplex, fights back and slips under, but Dakota holds off the bomb! So Candice YANKS Dakota into the buckles! And then hits a HIGH ANGLE GERMAN! Fans fire up while DMG CTRL freaks out! Candice crawls after Dakota, fans rally behind her, but Iyo distracts the ref. Candice goes up but Bayley trips her up! Roll up from Dakota, Dakota wins!

Winner: Dakota Kai, by pinfall

DMG CTRL snags one away from Candice and Bayley is all fired up! But will Bayley be able to maintain control of the situation with her contract signing later tonight?

 

Johnny Gargano walks to gorilla.

Wait, is that Lumis sitting on a trunk, petting an unconscious Miz? Gargano looks back, and Lumis is gone! Gargano pokes Miz and it startles Miz awake. Miz has a picture of Lumis and Miz at a birthday party. Gargano knows that’s not good. Miz runs away and Gargano just chuckles, “Oh, Dexter.” Gargano continues to gorilla, will he have the last laugh against the tree trunk known as Otis?

 

DMG CTRL celebrates backstage.

Bayley says tag team champion or not, Dakota’s gonna give- Wait, Sarah walks in to congratulate Dakota. Obviously, this is why Bayley wants Kai & Sky in her corner for the Extreme Rules Ladder match. And speaking of, the Raw Women’s Championship match- Bayley stops Sarah there. It took her that long to realize why Bayley wants “weapons” like Dakota & Iyo on her side? Sarah’s just as dumb as Bianca! Bianca only just realized the importance of allies. But this won’t ruin Bayley’s mood, because she’s gonna do Bianca a favor tonight. It’ll just be her and Bianca, but for the contract signing only.

Bayley addresses Bianca by looking right at the camera. Tonight, it will just be the two of them. “But remember: you asked for this.” The Role Model is going to play fair and square for now, but is she just going to turn up the heat at Extreme Rules?

 

Johnny Gargano VS Otis w/ Chad Gable & Austin Theory!

Johnny Wrestling helped Kevin Owens and Drew McIntyre fight the Alpha Academy and the Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank Ever on SmackDown, and now things are 1v1! Will Master Gable’s Number One Guy crush Gargano’s Rebel Heart? Or will Otis have to take one #ForTheAcademy?

Theory joins commentary to talk down on Gargano but Gargano says he’s got his eyes on him. Gargano and Otis circle, Otis rushes in but Gargano gets around. Gargano throws hands, wrenches an arm, then drop toeholds, but Otis is way too stocky for that! Otis drags Gargano up, TOSSES him to a corner, but Gargano dodges to fire off more hands. The ref counts, Gargano climbs up and rains down fists. But Otis carries Gargano corner to corner to RAM him into the corner! Then he CLUBS Gargano down! Fans boo but Otis shouts, “For the Academy!” Gargano fires off hands but Otis shoves him. Gargano ducks ‘n’ dodges and RAMS Otis!

Otis stays up and comes back with the WRECKER ELBOW! “Who’s the man?!” Theory cheers Otis on and Otis goes back for Gargano. Otis drags Gargano up, bumps him off buckles, and CLUBS him over and over. Otis taunts Gargano, CHOKES Gargano on the ropes, and Theory says he loves it. Otis drags Gargano up, scoops him, and SLAMS him! Fans rally for Gargano but Otis looms over him.

Gable distracts the ref, Theory SMACKS Gargano with the briefcase! Otis hauls Gargano up for the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! Cover, Otis wins!

Winner: Otis, by pinfall

Theory screwed Gargano over, but he goes after Gargano more! So do Gable and Otis! But here comes BRAUN!! The Monster of All Monsters CLOBBERS Otis at the ramp! Then he runs into the ring, but both Theory and Gable bail out! Braun slides out and he catches Gable, to TOSS him into the ring! Gable’s been taking credit for Braun’s career, will Braun take all the credit for ending Gable’s?

Braun Strowman VS Chad Gable w/ Otis & Austin Theory!

The bell rings, Braun sees Otis on the outside, and he TOSSES Gable onto Otis!! Fans are fired up with Braun and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Gable is in the ring, Braun dragging himself up from commentary. That was of course the doing of Otis during commercial, but that got Otis EJECTED! Gable goes out and stalks Braun.

Winner: Braun Strowman, by pinfall

The Monster of All Monsters puts away the Alpha Academy headmaster! But with the Nigerian Giant watching backstage, will Braun have to soon defend that title of alpha titan in the WWE?

 

Bobby Lashley finishes up with the trainer.

Lashley is mad but Kevin Patrick asks him about that blindside attack from Rollins. How is Lashley doing? Lashley is going to crush Rollins’ throat so we never have to hear that cackle again. And then, after Riddle beats Rollins in the Fight Pit, Lashley will finish Rollins off! Lashley will get Rollins next week on the season premiere, for the US Championship! No backing out, no excuses, no running away! Lashley gets Rollins in the ring to bounce him around like a pinball, then he’ll put Rollins in the Hurt Lock until he screams for mercy! Then Lashley will make Rollins pass out in the middle of the ring. That’s how Lashley feels. What will even be left of Rollins after this next week?

 

Corey Graves is in the ring.

He welcomes us all to this “historic moment.” There are ladders in the ring, but also chairs and the table for this contract signing. “It is the first-ever Ladder match for a women’s championship in WWE history.” So first, the challenger, Bayley. The Role Model makes her entrance solo, as promised. Then the Raw Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair. She is also solo, because she doesn’t need back-up to take on Bayley. Bianca and Bayley sit at the table and Corey says let’s not wait any longer. Let’s make this official with the contract. Bayley tells Bianca it’s just them, just like she asked. Is she okay? Does she feel safe?

Bayley feels great, really, despite not having her girls with her. But Bayley feels really good since DMG CTRL has done everything Bayley has said to a T. Her plan has been going really good and that clearly shakes Bianca’s confidence. But don’t worry about that, Bayley is doing this favor for her since Bianca’s dumb enough to accept a Ladder match for the title. But that’s fine, Bayley’s got her. Bayley signs her part of the contract and says, “Bianca, Bianca, Bianca. Look what your ego has gotten you into! I mean, I bet your ego makes you think that Bayley chose a ladder match because you KOD’d me on top of a ladder at Hell in a Cell.”

Or maybe Bianca thinks that Bayley has half the ego as Bianca and she wants to make history again by winning the first-ever women’s title ladder match. “But uh, ding dong, hello, here’s something for all you guys. It’s much bigger than that, okay? I think big picture here. The ladder is symbolic for my entire WWE career since the day I walked in. Unlike you, I’ve had to literally climb and climb and climb… *fake panting* And climb and climb and climb and try to the top. And in that process, I was you. Yeah, I was you, ponytail and all! You guys remember that, huh? Colorful sequins. And you see those little girls out there? That little girl I walked by on the ramp with the EST shirt, a Bianca Belair sign.

“You know what those signs use to say? Those signs used to say BAYLEY. They used to have headbands on. They used to put their ponytails to the side. But you know what happened, Bianca? Those signs changed. The T-shirts changed. And the cheers started to fade. They gave up on me, Bianca, and they stopped caring. And when they stopped caring, my whole career started spiraling. I started to fall further and further and further, and I had to do something to climb my way back to the top-” Bianca tells Bayley to shut up. Bianca signs her part, and it’s official. Corey thanks them both and wishes them both luck.

Bianca tells Bayley she just runs her mouth over and over again. Girl, UH-UH! Bayley has this chip on her shoulder that has absolutely nothing to do with Bianca. It might be really hard to see someone have everything you want, but comparison is the thief of joy. Bayley should never compare herself to Bianca, because she will never be Bianca, do it like Bianca or do it better than Bianca. Fans cheer that. Bianca says everything Bayley did didn’t work because Bayley was pretending to be someone she wasn’t. This is the real, authentic Bianca and that is why fans connect with her. Bayley didn’t “evolve,” she just became the real Bayley. And now she’s here showing us her real colors.

As far as her little plan, congrats, it took you a whole year to come up with a plan. But Bianca doesn’t need a plan, because she stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. Plus, does Bayley think she’s the only one that tried to surprise her at SummerSlam? You see how that worked out, right? But since Bayley likes plans, she can plan on still calling Bianca the Raw Women’s Champion after Extreme Rules. Well, we’ll see about that on Saturday, because DMG CTRL will disagree with that since they’ll be right by Bayley’s side. Actually, what’re they doing right now? What time is it? Because they were supposed to go get something to eat.

Oh no! Kai & Sky are attacking Alexa & Asuka! They already did something to Asuka’s leg and now they’re mugging Alexa! And then Bayley YANKS Bianca by her hair over the desk and she hammers away! Then she TOSSES Bianca back over the desk, to go after her more! Bianca bails out but can’t get away! Bayley whips but Bianca reverses and Bayley hits LED apron! Bianca bolts to the back, but Bayley laughs. Bianca finds Asuka and Alexa but the damage is done! The Empress of Tomorrow clutches her knee, will Bianca be down an ally at Extreme Rules? Alexa glares at the camera and tells DMG CTRL this is NOT over! Alexa VS Iyo, TONIGHT!!

 

Angelo Dawkins w/ Montez Ford VS Solo Sikoa w/ The Bloodline!

The Profits may be out of the tag team running while Ford’s foot heals, but can Dawkins unleash the Curse of Greatness? Or will the Street Champion of the Island sharpen his edge as he also prepares for Ricochet this Friday?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around in a deadlock but Dawkins powers Solo back. Solo turns things around to put Dawkins in the corner, but he lets off as the ref counts. Dawkins ROCKS Solo with uppercuts and haymakers but Solo ROCKS him back! Solo CHOPS Dawkins in the corner, ROCKS him again, then whips corner to corner. Dawkins goes up and over and keeps moving but Solo RAMS him! Dawkins RAMS Solo back, then hurdles over. Solo shoves, Dawkins handsprings and DROPKICKS Solo down! Ford fires up, Solo bails out and is furious! Sami tries to cool Solo off but Solo rushes in, but Dawkins DECKS him!

Solo gets up in a fury and he grabs a chair! This is just like SmackDown! Sami slows Solo and says not to give Dawkins a win like this. Jey tells Sami to back of, Solo’s his brother. Jey says Solo’s good, he’s got this. The Bloodline lets cooler heads prevail while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Solo has Dawkins down with a neck wrench. Dawkins fights up so Solo rains down HEADBUTTS! Solo clamps on the shoulder claw but Dawkins still endures. Fans rally and Dawkins fights up. Dawkins pries free of the hold to throw big body shots and forearms! Dawkins whips, Solo reverses and then SAMOAN DROPS on the rebound! The Bloodline holds up the fingers, #WeTheOnes, and Solo snarls as he stares at Dawkins. Fans rally for Dawkins but Solo throws haymakers! Dawkins wobbles on spaghetti legs, but Solo whips him for another SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Dawkins survives and Solo is annoyed.

Sami and the Usos argue the count but Ford defends that was two. Solo taunts Dawkins, “This is it? This is who you’ve got for me?” Solo steps to Dawkins in the corner, gets in Dawkins’ face, and says, “They call me the Enforcer!” Solo whips Dawkins hard into the corner! Dawkins falls to the mat and writhes. The Bloodline loves this as Solo looms over Dawkins. Solo drags Dawkins up to clamp that claw on again! Dawkins still endures, fans rally up again, and Dawkins fights against the claw. Dawkins throws elbows but Solo throws a knee! Then clinches for a BELLY2BELLY! Solo soaks up the heat as his brothers hold up the fingers.

Sami coaches Solo to keep on Dawkins, to show no mercy. Dawkins gets to a corner and Solo aims from the other. Solo powers up, “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” HIP ATTACK!! Dawkins is dazed and Solo looks at him flounder. Ford coaches Dawkins to dig deep and fight, but Solo aims again. “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” HIP- ENZIGURI from Dawkins!! Ford and St. Paul are thunderous as Solo and Dawkins are both down! Dawkins and Solo rise, Dawkins stands first, and he LARIATS Solo! And again! Solo HEADBUTTS! Solo whips, Dawkins hurdles and FLYING UPPERCUTS! Fans fire up and Solo goes to a corner, CYCLONE SPLASH and ENZIGURI from Dawkins!

Dawkins reels Solo in, for the SILENCER! Cover, TWO!! Sami gets on the apron, but then Jey tells him to get down? Jey says Solo can handle this, Uce! This all distracts Dawkins either way, Solo SUPERKICKS! But now the ref doesn’t see the cover! The ref hurries, TWO!! Solo is mad at Sami and Jey! They get down, Dawkins rolls Solo! TWO!! Dawkins dodges, and he POUNCES Solo out! Sami hurries to Solo’s side to check him and coach him, but Jey pulls Sami off Solo. Jey has his brother, but then Jimmy wants everyone to just cool off. Jey and Sami argue, Dawkins FLIES! Down go the Usos! Dawkins puts Solo in, Sami yells at him about the Usos!

Dawkins DECKS Sami! But Dawkins gets in for Solo to WHEEL KCIK! And then SPINNING SOLO!! Cover, Solo wins!

Winner: Solo Sikoa, by pinfall

In the end, the Bloodline made it work! Solo gets the win and winning fixes everything. At least, it should. Are the problems between Sami and Jey going to persist? Will it end up costing the Bloodline big time down the line?

 

Theory talks with Otis backstage.

Theory is proud of Otis for doing exactly what he was supposed to in that ring. Wait, where’s Gable? Otis says hold on. He drags Gable up. Gable says he almost had Braun. Theory says Gable did good. But hey, they’re not done with Gargano. Next week, on the season premiere of Raw, Theory himself will take on Gargano, and Theory vows to put Gargano down. A-Town Down! Will the Youngest Mr. MITB Ever finally have his way and be rid of Johnny Wrestling?

 

Edge speaks!

“This version of Edge that you’ve seen since I’ve come back is pretty much Adam. More or less, the veil of character has been dropped, and I’ve been pretty transparent since I’ve come back. At 37 years old, I was told that I had to retire, forced to retire, I had no choice. Until I decided to make it a choice. Because I can’t quit. The lousy part is, by the time that choice became a reality, I was 46, and it was difficult. And it’s progressively become more and more difficult. Now I’m not looking for sympathy. It’s my choice. This is my freakin’ dream gig, I love this.

“But what’s become… harder… is the fact that it’s not just taking a toll on me now. It’s taking a toll on my entire family. And I didn’t have this family before. It’s harder to hide it from the girls when they can hear me coming down the stairs like a symphony of bones cracking in the morning. But maybe even more difficult is seeing the… doubt… Or maybe even the fear in Beth’s eyes. Because she wants her husband to come out of this whole, and I think she’s afraid that ship has already sailed. And maybe I’m… insane? Maybe I’m too selfish? Maybe I’m too damn stubborn, but those are all things that you need in order to succeed at the level that I’ve succeeded at this business. I can’t apologize for that.

“But that brings me to Judgement Day. I gotta give ’em credit. They’ve made it more difficult. No matter how many times I beat ’em, they always come back. They always pick me apart, knock me down, and it’s harder and harder to put the pieces back together to come back. But I do. And I understand that Rey wants to distance himself from this because of Dominik, I get it. And it’s my fault the Judgement Day even exists. So I know what I have to do, and my back’s against the wall. You can ask Foley, you can ask Taker, you can ask Cena, you can ask Orton, I come out swinging or headbutting or whatever the hell else I have to do to be a one man gang!

“So Finn, in an I Quit Match at Extreme Rules, you are facing something, someone that you’ve never faced before and you can’t hurt me enough. All four of can’t hurt me enough to make me say, ‘I Quit.’ You cannot physically hurt me enough to make me say, ‘I Quit.’ I hope you’re all ready for a war, because I damn sure am.” The Rated R Superstar has given his ultimatum, will the Judgement Day be the ones facing their judgement day?

 

Alexa Bliss w/ Bianca Belair VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control!

The Five Foot Fury is furious over what Bayley’s buddies did to the Empress of Tomorrow. Alexa’s been trying to find that spark to return to her old self, will this be just the thing she needs? Or will the Evil Genius have the same trick up her proverbial sleeve as Dakota did earlier tonight?

Raw returns and DMG CTRL make their entrance. The bell rings and the two rush in! Iyo DROPKICKS Alexa, fires off hands and knees, then whips. Alexa blocks, fires off forearm after forearm on Iyo, but Iyo shoves back. Alexa runs Iyo over, and again! And then hits a THESZ PRESS! Alexa rains down hands, then hits another THESZ PRESS! More fast hands, and then Alexa drags Iyo up. Alexa bumps Iyo off buckles, stomps a mudhole, then lets off. Iyo dodges the return, holds a leg and avoids the slaps to DRAGON SCREW! Alexa clutches her leg but Iyo stomps away on it! Iyo drops knees on the knee!

Kai & Bayley cheer and Iyo CHOPS Alexa. Alexa blocks the punch to ROCK, ROCK and SHOTGUN Iyo! Fans fire up and Alexa stands on Iyo at the ropes for a SKATEBOARD STOMP! The ref counts, Alexa lets off but runs in to KNEE Iyo against the ropes! Alexa then YANKS the ropes to bring Iyo down, and she drops INSULT2INJURY! Cover, TWO! Iyo is showing the toughness of a decorated champion, but Alexa snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Alexa drags Iyo up, dodges the Shotei, but Iyo uses the waistlock to HOTSHOT Alexa! Then a DRIVE- NO, Alexa avoids the dropkick! But Iyo avoids a wrecking ball dropkick to SHOTGUN Alexa again!

DMG CTRL are fired up and Alexa is down while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once again and Alexa JAWBREAKERS then CLOBBERS Iyo! And again! Then mule kicks, but Iyo wrenches out of the DDT. Alexa reverses that to hit an STO! Alexa KNEES Iyo down, covers, TWO! Bayley & Kai coach Iyo but Alexa drags her up. Alexa whips but Iyo holds ropes to BOOT back! Iyo then spins Alexa around, underhooks, TIGER BACKBREAKER! Alexa goes to a corner but Iyo runs in, SHINKANSEN! Iyo then steps on Alexa to go up top and OVER THE MOON- FLOP! Alexa shows her resilience as a decorated champion, and she hits a DDT! Alexa drags Iyo into a drop zone and now she goes to the corner!

Fans fire up as Alexa climbs up, for TWISTED BLISS! But Bayley distracts the ref! Bianca yanks Bayley out to fire off! But Dakota joins in, Bianca gets 2v1! And sent into steel steps! But Alexa CANNONBALLS them both down! Alexa hurries back and climbs up again! But a SHOTEI stops her! Iyo then tucks Alexa for an AIR RAID CRASH! Iyo goes back up fast, for OVER THE MOONSAULT! Cover, Iyo wins!

Winner: Iyo Sky, by pinfall

DMG CTRL with another assist! They sweep the night, working together as a well-oiled machine. But then they mug Alexa! Asuka can’t help with her busted leg, and Kai & Sky fetch a ladder! Bayley beats down on Alexa, but Bianca gets in to fire off on Bayley! Kai & Sky RAM Bianca down with the ladder! And then Iyo keeps Alexa down, but wait! Asuka is still hobbling out here? On one good leg, she has a kendo stick to SMACK Dakota! But Iyo WRECKS Asuka with the ladder! Then Kai & Sky SLAM the ladder on Asuka! They keep it on top of her, and then bring it around to open it up. Bayley drags Alexa over to put her inside the ladder!

Bayley tried doing this to Shotzi on Friday, Kai & Sky DOUBLE BOOT the ladder to crush Alexa!! Fans boo as Bayley tells Asuka to stay out of her business. Kai & Sky stand the ladder up for her, and Bayley soaks up the heat as she says DMG CTRL are going to take over! Bayley drags Bianca up, stands her in the corner, and Dakota runs Around the World to BOOT Bianca down! Bayley drags Bianca back up by her ponytail and then hooks her up, ROSE PLANT! Bayley drags Alexa up, ROSE PLANT! Kai & Sky stand the ladder over Bianca and Bayley brings the Raw Women’s Championship belt up with her to the top.

Fans boo as DMG CTRL stands over their enemies, but will they be on top of the WWE after this Saturday? Or can Bianca prove she’s the toughEST and bounce back from this beating to beat Bayley back?

AEW Elevation Coverage

The Peacock and his Boys defends their gold!

AEW Dark: Elevation features the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions! But will Dalton Castle & The Tate Twins still reign in Philadelphia?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Skye Blue VS Trish Adora; wins.
  • Lance Archer VS Cheeseburger; wins.
  • Abadon VS Abby Jane; wins.
  • ROH Six Man Tag Team Championships: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Primal Fear; win(s) and
  • Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Gia Scott & Leon St. Giovanni; win.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tracy Williams; wins.
  • The Lucha Brothers w/Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Deppen & Dante Martin; win.
  • 8 Man Tag: Best Friends VS The Factory; win(s).

QUICK NOTES

A really good line-up here, with the big attraction being Dalton & The Boys taking on Adrien Soriano, Matthew Omen, & Gabriel Hodder, aka Primal Fear. That’ll be a solid match that I will cover, but I don’t see the champions losing the titles. Good to see Cheeseburger but he’s gonna get eaten alive by Archer. And I like that we’re getting a full faction showdown of Best Friends VS The Factory. That’ll be a big win for Best Friends and they’ll have momentum going after Death Triangle for that feud.
