Superstars hype up SmackDown!
The Golden Role Models brag that Bayley already won at Extreme Rules, and it won’t be any different! Nikki Cross will be grabbing more than just cracked ribs. Nikki is the sad, pathetic loser witnessing their era! But Nikki responds that after that match, her confidence was in the gutter. But she beat someone who is better than both Sasha and Bayley. Nikki can’t wait to knock Bayley off her high horse and become the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion!
Big E says that though he does not have Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston by his side, they’re on his mind and in his heart and in- Well, okay, just those. But he promises we will all FEEL~ the POWER~! Miz and Morrison think on Big E’s newfound solo career, and laugh! That’s like a bad TV show spin-off! Like Road Rules to Real World, like Total Divas to Miz & Mrs, like Wipeout to Cannonball! Aren’t those all Miz’s…? But the point is: Big E can’t be a double division star like the Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century! Unlike Big E, The Miz is AWESOME!
Lacey Evans tells us not to worry our pretty little heads, because she is going to give Naomi what she deserves. But Naomi responds by saying what she deserves it to beat Lacey senseless, and make her #FeelTheGlow!

Metalik finds out the hard way when he steps into the House that AJ Styles Built!
SmackDown is interrupted by The Firefly Fun House!
Bray Wyatt walks in and takes off his snorkel. Sorry, he was searching for Braun~! But Bruan must still be wandering in that filthy swamp. Well, unless the gators got to him. But either way, a part of Braun’s soul will be trapped there forever. Just to make something clear, Bray NEVER wanted to hurt Braun! He only wanted to help. But now, he is awake, and he wants what Braun has. And until he gets it, “none of you are safe.” #LetMeIn. Bye~!

Baron Corbin finds Chad Gable watching backstage.
The Wolf King asks Shorty G, “Hurts, doesn’t it?” What? Well, standing on the sidelines, having to watch a match rather than be in it. That could’ve been Gable in that match, if he had the right friends. That could be Gable as Intercontinental Champion. So he wants to be a friend to Gable after all the insults? Haven’t they always been friends, Chad? Baron did all that to “motivate” him. Gable is a former Olympian, a national treasure that gets overlooked. Sorry, poor choice of words. He gets ignored. And then, some “barefoot idiot” comes in, gets the hype, and gets the chances Gable deserves.
Oh of course, that’s what this is about. Gable is going to be used against Matt Riddle for Baron. No, he misunderstands. Corbin just wanted to share some facts. Gable has all the natural ability in the world, but is lacking in opportunities. Though, yes, the “King’s Ransom” is on the table for anyone who wants to prove Riddle doesn’t belong. Just think about it.
Jeff Hardy arrives backstage.
And he is congratulated by superstars, referees and other backstage personnel for his victory over both Sheamus and alcohol. Jeff is headed to the ring, what will the Charismatic Enigma say after the break?
Jeff Hardy heads to the ring!
The crowd also cheers for his victory as he takes the mic. “Wow, I’ve gotta admit, man. I haven’t felt this good in a long time.” The last few months with Sheamus have been tough. He was a constant reminder of how dangerous Hardy’s demons can be. And as one member of the crowd shouts, “He sucks!” Hardy has to remind himself how bad it can be, because sobriety is a never ending challenge you face every day. But beating Sheamus in the Bar Fight was a reminder that Hardy is on the right path. He’s an alcoholic, but so much more than that. He is a loving husband, father, and proud WWE superstar. Hardy gets to perform for all of us and he loves that. Hardy is so grateful that the love of his family and friends have gotten him here. Right now, it just makes him never want to let us down again.
Hardy vows to fight this fight every day, and wants to make the most of his life. He is grateful to be alive and well on SmackDown. But then Baron Corbin appears! “Enough, enough, enough!” If Corbin has to stand around and listen about Hardy’s sobriety, his head might explode. What is even going on here? Hardy is the Charismatic Enigma known for taking things to the extreme. But now he’s standing here, whining and crying about recovery. The crowd boos as Corbin says Hardy’s life sucks, but he needs to shut up and deal with it. Riddle is bad enough, since he can’t find his shoes, and now Corbin has to face Gulak! Corbin feels like “my kingdom” is turning into an asylum.
Hardy tells Corbin that one thing has learned, if everyone around you feels like the problem, maybe the real problem is you. Corbin says he’s going to be honest here. Hardy is actually disappointing. Hardy should want to stay in Corbin’s good graces. Corbin would’ve offered Hardy the King’s Ransom, but Hardy probably wouldn’t take it. Hardy would rather sit in a circle, talk about the 12 steps, and collect coins. But speaking of Gulak, he gets Corbin from behind! Gulak fires off on Corbin and the crowd fires up! This showdown will go down when SmackDown returns from break!
Baron Corbin VS Drew Gulak!

Gulak stomps Corbin down, follows him to a corner, and goes after the arm again. Gulak targets the elbow, gets a wristlock to hammerlock, then throws headbutts and body shots. Corbin turns things around but Gulak turns it back to CHOP and forearm!

Gulak slips out, but runs into DEEP SIX! “Bro…” Matt Riddle arrives! He dares Corbin to do something about him, but then Gulak cradles Corbin! TWO, END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!
Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall
But Riddle pounces on the Wolf King! Corbin gets a taste of his own medicine, and then the FINAL FLASH! Riddle drags Corbin back up, but Gable rolls Riddle?! CHAOS THEORY!! Shorty G seems to believe what Corbin was saying! Will Gable win that King’s Ransom after all?

Miz calls for a test of strength, only to kick low! And kick and punch and kick and punch! The crowd boos but things speed up. Big E hurdles, and catches Miz to the cobra twist! Big E puts some spice on it with the spanking! The crowd claps along then Big E whips and elbows Miz down! Cover, TWO!
Miz gets to ropes, Big E talks smack but Miz SLAPS Big E! Big E glares, grabs Miz, and throws him out! The crowd fires up as Big E stalks behind Miz on the outside.

Winner: Big E, by submission
The arsenal of the big bad Big E is promising us, “Ain’t no stopping me!” Will Big E rise up all the way to the top all by himself?
Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura celebrate their victory.
Extreme Rules just seems to be the King of Strong Style’s PPV. Every year at Extreme Rules, that is when Nakamura wins a title. This year was the best because they’re tag team champions. But Lucha House Party comes by to see the fiesta. So not great to see them. Why are they in the “Champion’s Lounge” right now? Amigos, you like to party? Yeah! LUCHA! LUCHA! Cesaro says this is champion’s only party. Aye, sorry. No campiones, no fiesta. Metalik might’ve been invited if he won against Styles, but uh, how do you say… YOU BLEW IT! Lince is angry for Metalik but Metalik keeps him back. They leave the party as Cesaro and Nakamura continue to gloat. Will the Swiss Cyborg and King of Strong Style have to worry about LHP coming for those titles as payback?
Sheamus speaks backstage.
“In retrospect, the mistake I made in agreeing to fight Jeff Hardy in a bar was agreeing to fight Jeff Hardy in a bar.” He fought Hardy in his “natural environment.” That was home field advantage for him! And as Sheamus watched Hardy hit the gin soaked floor and get up like nothing happened, he knew he was in trouble. Seeing Hardy get hit with beer bottle after beer bottle and only get stronger, Sheamus knew he was in there with a greater power. And even though not a drop of booze touched Hardy’s lips, he was being fueled by alcohol. It was like a handicap match, Sheamus VS Hardy and “his long life partner, alcohol.” Sheamus was surrounded! But it was a testament to Sheamus’ own courage that he made the fight as close as he did.
Sheamus won’t make excuses or complain. What’s done is done. He won’t push Hardy towards the bottle anymore. An addict that strong, “it’s only a matter of time.” So Sheamus will sit back, relax, and let nature take it’s course. Hardy is not Sheamus’ problem anymore. And that’s bad news for everyone else. Now Sheamus is their problem.
Naomi VS Lacey Evans!
Speaking of problems, the Glow and the Sassy Southern Belle have issues they need to settle between each other. Will Naomi do her fans proud by finally teaching Lacey a lesson? Or will The Lady of SmackDown make this one nasty?
Before the match, Lacey grabs a mic to speak. “I beat Naomi last time. I beat her at karaoke. And yet y’all want to start a little ‘Naomi Deserves Better’ hashtag~?” Boo hoo. If y’all want to feel sorry for her, she’ll give them a reason to feel sorry tonight. Now Naomi makes her entrance, and this tense rematch begins!
Lacey and Naomi tie up, Lacey powers Naomi to a corner but again tries to tie her hair to the ropes! The ref stops her and Naomi gets free, to boot Lacey down. Naomi runs, huricanranas but Lacey blocks with power to BOMB Naomi down! Lacey talks trash as she dribbles Naomi’s head off the mat! Then grinds a forearm into Naomi’s face! Lacey stalks Naomi to a corner, drags her up, and hits a fallout DDT! Lacey gator rolls Naomi to the apron and bends her back against the post! The ref counts, Lacey boots Naomi down! Naomi gets up and kicks back but Lacey kicks her. Lacey POSTS Naomi as the ring count climbs. Lacey refreshes the count to throw Naomi against the apron.
Lacey drags Naomi around by her hair, and traps the hair between steel steps! The ring count climbs again and Naomi works to free herself again. Lacey wipes the sweat from her brow but Naomi returns! Lacey drags her up by her hair and tosses her! The crowd rallies, Naomi gets to the apron but Lacey pursues. Naomi kicks Lacey through the ropes! And ax kicks! Lacey falls, Naomi runs and slides, to SUNSET BOMB!! Naomi puts Lacey back in, covers, TWO! Lacey sits up, Naomi wrenches her hair and reels her into a headlock. Naomi runs at a corner but Lacey denies the bulldog, and Naomi eats buckles! Lacey goes after Naomi’s hair again! She tries to tie it to the rope yet again, the ref counts so Lacey stops at 4. Naomi is able to undo the knots, DODGES the Woman’s Right, and backslides Lacey! NAOMI WINS!
Winner: Naomi, by pinfall
Lacey tried that trick one too many times and it cost her! Naomi wins and teaches Lacey a lesson, but is Naomi moving on to bigger and better yet?
Mandy Rose and Otis Dozovic return backstage!
The Golden Goddess feels it’s been awhile since they’ve had a proper date. Yes, a proper date for the sweet peach. Mandy has reservations for Otiz’s favorite BBQ place! And she made sure to get the private room so no one can see how much they’re “All You Can Eating.” Otis is ready for ribs, steaks and… OH, dessert! Well of course! Mandy wanted to surprise him with a “peach sundae” covered in whip cream, drizzled in chocolate syrup, and with a cherry on top. OH YEEES! They’re both going to finish getting ready, and then they’ll meet back here. But as they part, Sonya Deville has also returned! Will the grudge between Fire and Desire ignite before the flames of romance can spark?
Sonya attacks Mandy at the make-up station!
She SLUGS Mandy, bounces her off the table, then asks if Mandy really thought this was over! Sonya grabs the lipstick and smears it all over Mandy’s face! Then DECKS her, SLAPS her, and asks what’s wrong. Is she afraid to be ugly? Sonya KNEES Mandy down and dares her to get up! What does Mandy have now? Mandy tries to fight back but Sonya STOMPS her into the floor! The lipstick is all in Mandy’s hair! And speaking of, Sonya grabs scissors to CUT THE HAIR!! “You are going to look SO pretty, Mandy~!” They can’t wait to show Mandy’s pretty face to everyone! Maybe Mandy didn’t believe her when Sonya said she was going to ruin her. Then Sonya ROUNDHOUSES Mandy down!
“What else can I do to Mandy Rose?” Sonya rummages around, and finds ELECTRIC CLIPPERS!! But referees and security finally arrive! They stop Sonya, she drops the clippers, but she takes the cut hair as a trophy. Mandy is shaken both physically and emotionally. Is Sonya ever going to leave her alone?
Otis rushes over, with Tucker with him. Heavy Machinery checks on Mandy while Miz and Morrison feel the need to comment. “Kayla, this is an outrage. I cannot believe something like this would happen in WWE. I mean, where are the adults in the room?!” Mandy’s hair is her best thing, and now she looks like a soccer mom! Minivan Mandy. Rest a-sheared- Miz, c’mon. Hey, don’t cut him short. Right, sorry, this is a hairy situation. Luckily the WWE officials shaved the day to comb through the wreckage. They’d be wigging out, too. Tucker hears the mocking and chases Miz and Morrison off. Will the Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century ever stop being so sophomoric?
SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bayley w/ Sasha Banks VS Nikki Cross w/ Alexa Bliss!
The Golden Role Models thought they had the Loony Lass beat at Extreme Rules with that boss knuckle cheap shot, but she came back for more. They thought they had her blocked when they put her against her bestie, Lexi. Nikki not only fought but beat Alexa 1v1 and officially earned this rematch. What trick will #BayleyDosStraps and #TwoBeltzBanks try to stop Nikki this time?
SmackDown returns as the #DoubleDoubleChampChamps make their entrance. The introductions are made, the SmackDown Women’s Championship is raised, and this extremely tense rematch begins!
Nikki rushes Bayley but Bayley gets away. They circle as the crowd rallies up. Bayley kicks low then throws hands. Bayley whips, Nick ducks and dodges to then stop and throw forearms back! Nikki has Bayley in a corner and rains down furious rights! Nikki lets off at 4 to then dropkick Bayley down! Bayley staggers about, Nikki runs in to monkey flip her away! Nikki keeps going, bringing Bayley up. Bayley spins out but into a THESZ PRESS! Nikki thrashes Bayley but Bayley gets away. Nikki is right on Bayley, whips but Bayley kicks back.

Winner: Bayley, by pinfall (still SmackDown Women’s Champion)
A win only moderately cleaner this time, but it was still a win! The #DoubleDoubleChampChamps take their leave, and Nikki is beside herself. Alexa tries to console her, and the crowd still cheers her, but Nikki is in no mood. Nikki says she’s okay but she just doesn’t want her to talk. Alexa keeps trying to tell Nikki it’s okay, but Nikki shoves her down!? And then, the lights start turning off?! And when they come back up, it’s ALL RED!! THE FIEND has come for Alexa?! Does this have something to do with the Swamp Fight and Braun’s visions!? The Fiend is right up in Alexa’s face, and he holds out his hand to the sky. Alexa can’t move as the hand draws closer to her. MANDIBLE CLAW!!! The Fiend smothers the Five Foot Fury, and the lights go out! What does he have planned for Alexa?!
WOW, SmackDown was really, really good tonight! The quick hype promos to open continue to be really good, and I feel like they’re helping to save time doing promos later, and also brings up the mood before things get going. Styles VS Metalik made for a great opener, and while Styles was clearly going to win, the surprise was him attacking Lince. I suppose Styles needs to maintain his Heel heat since everyone just loves him for how great he is. Styles moves on, and just about anyone can be his next challenger at this point. Lucha House Party naturally move on to get into a verbal confrontation with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura that will surely lead to a tag title feud. It’s mostly be default, but at the same time, Metalik did great against Styles so he and Lince will do great against Cesaro and Nakamura.
The return of Mandy and Otis did not go the way I expected, and perhaps for good reason. Sonya going after Mandy with such ferocity was wild. She was really playing up how obsessed she’s become. And another great thing is that it seems to be bringing Heavy Machinery into a story against Miz and Morrison, which will be good to at least establish Heavy Machinery in the tag division again. Otis is still Mr. Money in the Bank, but without Braun around, he can’t cash in. Maybe he and Tucker will bide their time with a tag title opportunity, since they were pretty close at one point. Big E had a great match with Miz, with Morrison trying to interfere, and of course Big E wins. I would love if Big E is moved into the Intercontinental Championship picture to be Styles’ challenger.
Corbin recruiting Gable is an interesting move. Gulak and Corbin have a solid match but it just seemed natural for Corbin to win. I hope this means Catch Point becomes a team to take on Corbin and Gable, and then maybe enter the tag division at some point. Jeff Hardy might even get involved, the way Corbin was getting on his case. Sheamus seems to be moving on, but I can’t be sure who he goes after since a lot of other stars are tied up in other things. And it was rather interesting to have the women’s division pretty much dominate the latter half of the show. Mandy’s segment with Sonya was during that half, Lacey and Naomi have a decent rematch, but the SmackDown Women’s Championship rematch was great stuff! Bayley still wins because of the overarching story between both Raw and SmackDown, and I do like that Nikki is starting to get angry.
But HOLY CRAP Fiend going after Alexa! This clearly ties back into the story with Braun, and I wonder if Alexa really will end up the onscreen face of Sister Abigail, perhaps replacing the puppet on Firefly Fun House. Fans have been up and down on that for some time, but either way, we might be getting it now. SummerSlam’s Braun VS Fiend might get really wild, and I feel like WWE saying they’ll have WWE Payback 2020 just one week after SummerSlam is tipping their hand a bit. Just as WWE was doing well, they have to complicate things.
My Score: 8.6/10

Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.
Tony Schiavone notes the big 8 Man Tag they had last week, and the bumps and bruises from that match. Jungle Boy says the entire Express is banged up, with Christian Cage at home nursing his neck and JB’s own head still ringing. But JB’s sarcastic as he says thankfully Luchasaurus can even walk after that “terrifying” powerbomb. Kenny Omega and Adam Cole barge in, Omega saying someone must be desperate giving these guys promo time. Luchasaurus growls but Omega wants him to calm down. Cole dares Luchasaurus to do something, but then the Young Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK JB from the other end! And then The Elite mugs Luchasaurus!
Brandon Cutler confiscates the camera while Cole puts JB in a camel clutch to make him watch as Omega and the Bucks get Luchasaurus up for a TRIPLE POWERBOMB into a table! Nick Jackson says, “That felt GOOD! CACAW~!” Omega says they kicked Luchasaurus in the beanbags! “That’s what happens!” Will The Elite continue to bully anyone they want in AEW?
The Inner Circle is here!
Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz are together again after the Men of the Year and American Top Team tried to pick Le Champion apart last night on Rampage. Fans sing Judas again as the five stand in the ring. Santana gets the mic first and asks Miami what’s up! “Damn, one of the only cities we can count on to come two nights in a row, and y’all bring that same energy!” But Santana gets to the nitty gritty. While he and Ortiz have been handling business, they’ve been noticing that their boys are dealing with some American Top Team cabrones. But before he can say more, here come Men of the Year and American Top Team!
Dan Lambert has a question: Is this all the members of the Inner Circle Jerk? Or do they bring in fresh hands every once in awhile for variety’s sake? Fans boo but Lambert asks if they know how many championships American Top Team has given Miami! They should be throwing a parade! Show some damn respect! Jericho says, “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Dan Lambert, the fat faced dips*it!” Lambert is furious as the fans chant that at him. Jericho says it is interesting, seeing Lambert and his nefarious Neanderthals, but Jericho has a question for Paige VanZant.
“You always seem to be wherever the Inner Circle is. You’ve got a little bit of an obsession with Le Champion, maybe? Huh? You maybe gonna try and slide into my DM’s?” She says, “You wish!” Well Jericho says it doesn’t matter, he wouldn’t touch her with her husband’s genitalia. And he sees all the pictures for the Instagram. What filter does she use? Juno, bimbo or bitch? All the jokes are done, though. Before you is a reunited Inner Circle in Miami! No more 5v1 beatings, they are ready, face to face, 5v5! They want a 10 Man Tag, The Inner Circle VS American Top Team & The Men of the Year! Choose whoever you want, because there is NOBODY CRAZIER than the Inner Effin’ Circle!!
Lambert says if it was up to him, they’d beat the Inner Circle’s asses every week and collect the paychecks. But the Men of the Year have bigger plans and that involves championship gold. Lambert sees the biggest mouth on Jericho, the longest rap sheets on Santana & Ortiz, and Hager, he’s got the biggest head on a human being Lambert’s ever seen! Does Hager step feet-first into his shirt and pull it up? The fact is, though, the only one with a title is “Tiny Tim,” so he’s the one with the stroke to get these guys the match they want. The question is, will Sammy step up for the Inner Circle and hear their terms?
Lambert won’t tell anyone his terms now, because he doesn’t wanna waste another breath on the trash balls in the city he used to call his hometown! Scorpio Sky adds that while they wait these seven days, he’ll give them something to thing about. Jericho’s brain might be a little fuzzy after another Masvidal knee, but please don’t forget that Scorpio pinned the GOAT not once but twice. Fans chant, “You Still Suck!” Sammy tells Scorpio to shut up! It doesn’t matter if it’s one, both, or all, Sammy will beat them right now! They must’ve forgotten that he’s the Spanish God and TNT Champion! Sammy says see you next week, “and guess what? I’ma kick all y’alls asses!” Will this war only escalate as the weeks roll bye?
AAA Tag Team Championships: The Lucha Brothers VS ??? w/ Andrade El Idolo!
Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero have refused to join El Idolo’s stable, so he’s brought in “Las Super Ranas,” aka The Super Frogs, to take them on and take those titles! But are these two really the best Andrade could find? Or are these just the only two willing to spend time with the arrogant Andrade?
The introductions are made, the AAA belts are raised, and we see if Las Super Ranas are feeling froggy!
Fenix starts with Super Rana Uno, they circle and tie up, Rana Uno waistlocks but Fenix switches. CM Punk points out that given their height and build, Las Super Ranas is just FTR.

Fenix sweeps the legs, covers, ONE! Fenix handsprings and fans fire up. Rana Uno offers a handshake, Fenix doesn’t, but they tie up with knuckle locks.

Cash goes to the apron to drop a leg! Fenix writhes, Cash climbs back in and drags Fenix to center, cover, TWO! Cash craps on with a cobra clutch!

Penta goes up, DOUBLE QUE PASO! Double cover off the double stomps, TWO!! Fans rally up and Cash flounders to ropes. Penta drags him up, whips him to ropes, but Cash reverses and Dax hooks a leg! Penta still throws Cash up and out onto Dax! Fans fire up and shout, “CERO! MIEDO!” Fenix goes up top, Penta FLIES to take out Cash and Fenix LEAPS to take out Dax! The Lucha Bros put Dax in as fans lose their minds. Penta gets Dax up, “This is Awesome!” as Fenix climbs back up. But Cash drags Penta down! Penta BOOTS Cash then runs, but Cash dodges the sliding dropkick! Cash has a title belt but Penta ducks the attack to SUPERKICK Cash down!
Penta runs in but Cash TOSSES him into the timekeeper’s area! Fenix tightrope walks and avoids the belt shot to springboard ROUNDHOUSE! Dax O’Conner Rolls, with the ropes! TWO and Dax flies into a corner! Fenix sobats, whips, but Dax reverses! Fenix tiger feint rewinds, but Dax ducks the heel kick to ROCK him with a right hand! Dax whips, Fenix rewinds again to HEEL KICK! Down goes Dax and fans fire up! But here comes Tully Blanchard, in matching frog green! He distracts the ref, Dax has the AAA belt! Fenix goes up and up, MOONSAULT into the BELT SHOT!! Dax gets Fenix up, BRAINBUSTER! Cover, FTR WINS?!?!
Winners: FTR, by pinfall (NEW AAA Tag Team Champions)
Fans boo but “Las Super Ranas” FTR now have these belts! Will Andrade rub this in the Lucha Brothers’ faces forever now?
Backstage interview with Dante Martin & Lio Rush.
Tony Schiavone talks with them about the loss to Malakai Black. Lio says hey, and then says what happened tonight was meant to happen. Moments like this are just growing pains. In order to succeed, you need to fail, and that’s what Dante did tonight: failed. But he failed because of his own doing and he knows that. Lio says, “What did I tell you? Listen to me and everything will be money.” Lio just wants to take Dante on the highest flight possible. From this day forward, Dante will have a new tag team partner. And his name is Lio Rush! Lio offers a fist bump, Dante gives it but a bit reluctantly. How will Dante’s brother, Darius, and even Matt Sydal feel about this?
AEW returns with an interview with FTR & Andrade.
Schiavone finds the NEW AAA Tag Team Champions after they stole those from the Lucha Brothers. They didn’t steal anything! Andrade clearly orchestrated a conspiracy, but FTR says they are the greatest luchadors of all time! MJF joins in the celebration because these titles now belong to The Pinnacle. MJF says hey to Andrade, and “Uno momento dinero, comprende?” Andrade says if MJF wants that in a check or cash. How about both? Alright. They hand over the payment and MJF is loving it! Now remember, this was a one night only thing, okay? Mucho gracias. The Pinnacle goes off to party, but will they have to worry about Death Triangle coming for them?
Jon Moxley VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy!
The AEW World Title Eliminator bracket hasn’t been revealed but the Maniac is surely wanting to be on it. Will he use The Decoder to make a final case as to why he should be in that tournament?
The bell rings and Moxley CLOBBERS Yuta! Yuta flounders, Moxley puts him on ropes to club away with crossface forearms, but he lets off as the ref counts 4. He drags Yuta up, and gives him an X PLEX! Moxley storms around, rains down furious fists on Yuta, but the ref counts about the closed fists. Moxley lets off, gets in the ref’s face, drags Yuta up, PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, Moxley wins!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall
As quickly as he took Yuta out, Moxley heads out! Cassidy goes into the ring to check on Yuta along with the medics, will Freshly Squeezed use the tournament to avenge his protégé?
Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.
Schiavone congratulates her on her defeat over Hikaru Shida and denying her that 50th win, but he asks about Serena’s apparent attitude change. She says it is very simple: It was only a matter of time until she had to drag this division up to HER level. During her time away, she watched this division get way too comfortable and have too much fun. But then Shida rushes in and fires off on Serena! Not getting her 50th win is one thing but this is about that crystal trophy smashed in her head right after! Will Shida get her 50th win and revenge off the Woman of 1000 Holds?
Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS The Super Kliq!
Convinced that The Elite will interfere with Omega VS Hangman, Hangman’s real friends in the Dark Order called out Adam Cole & The Young Bucks! The Super Kliq already warmed up beating down Jurassic Express, will they only do worse to Evil Uno, John Silver & Alex Reynolds?

Matt mocks the fans rallying up but Silver throws forearms! And KICKS! But Matt RAMS Silver back into the corner! Matt fires off fast hands and stomps, lets off as the ref counts and brings Silver up to suplex. Silver blocks, Matt keeps trying but his back bothers him. Tag to Nick, he CLUBS Silver and gloats a moment but Silver blocks his suplex, too! AEW returns to single picture as Nick CLUBS Silver again. Tag to Matt, then tag back to Nick, the Bucks reel Silver in, but Silver double suplexes the Bucks! Fans fire up as Silver grits his teeth. Hot tag to Uno! Uno rallies on the Bucks but Cole kicks low. Cole whips, Uno dodges and blocks the kick to give it to the ref! NECKBREAKER!
Uno blocks Nick’s kick to take his shoe away! Nick dodges the shoe, Uno blocks the kick again, but Matt throws hands! Nick is free but Uno took his sock! Matt runs in but is tossed out!

A valiant effort from the Dark Order, but they just couldn’t keep up. But wait! Here comes Jungle Boy! He wants revenge for Luchasaurus, but he’s alone in a 3v1!

JB kicks Cutler low to SMACK him with the chair! The Bucks are furious but they don’t save Cutler from the SNARE TRAP with cold spray!! Cutler taps and JB lets him go as the Super Kliq retreats. Will Jurassic Express regroup and get their revenge in The Elite at some point?
Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes arrive at Dustin’s school.
And waiting inside are Lee Johnson, Brock Anderson, Red Velvet and KiLynn King. “There he is,” Big Shotty says, “Big Hollywood. Late.” Good to see he decided to grace them with his presence. Cody’s late, and lately he’s been acting like an “arrogant piece of shit.” Velvet SLAPS Cody, but King keeps her from doing more. Arn puts Cody through the old school drill. People attack, Cody reacts. Hip tosses, arm-drags, defending and countering, tying up, but then a sucker punch. Cody gets roughed up as Arn says that in order to be a champion, he has to overcome. Shawn Dean gets Cody with a pretty good enziguri, then King SLAPS Cody.
Cody says he has no idea what’s going on here. This isn’t teaching him anything! Arn has Cody look at a picture. Does he recognize who’s in it? Arn and Dusty. Cody has said he will never do anything that’d let the kids down. Does Cody think that on that given night from the photo, any kids were booing Dusty about what he did to Arn? No, because Arn had it coming. Malakai Black has it coming. Johnson jumps on Cody but Cody elbows him away. Is the American Nightmare going to sharpen his edge so that he can cut down the House of Black?
MJF heads to the ring.
He does a few stretches then gets a mic to speak. “Silencio, por favor.” MJF says it is bad enough that he is inside the place that smells like hookers and gasoline known as “Mid Miami,” but now Justin Roberts is all dressed up as Miami Vice yet forgets how to do his job. He can’t announce MJF for his match with Darby? In that case, MJF will do it for him! “Ladies and gentlemen, just in case you are deaf, dumb, blind, stupid, or by the looks of it, very poor, hailing from the most magical place in the world, Plainview, Long Island, New York! Weighing in at a svelte 226 pounds, he’s better than you and you know it: Maxwell Jacob Friedman, M! J! F!” Alright, Darby, let’s get this over with.
Fans chant, “You Suck! You Suck!” MJF says what really sucks is that Darby isn’t here tonight. So funny, because Darby claims MJF can’t break him mentally. And yet, they have a match scheduled tonight, and Darby no shows like a gutless coward! So maybe Darby was wrong. MJF did break him mentally! Fans boo because we all saw The Pinnacle, in ski masks, mug and brutalize Darby just last week. MJF continues to play the charade and says “Let’s be honest here.” MJF then insults the one fan as “Fat boy” and says he can’t hear him over the guy’s three chins. MJF pretends to be surprised to learn that Darby was attacked last week. Did Schiavone know? This is awful!
MJF says let’s be honest, still pretty unprofessional to not show up for a match. Like, c’mon. This is why Darby will always be the number two guy in AEW. And just like Miami, he will always be #MID. Now MJF is number one! But since he cares about the fans so much, he knows they wanted him to be in action against Darby, so by God, we’ll have that happen. Wardlow, come on out. Wardlow drags referee Bryce Remsberg out and MJF wants the ref to count to ten. If Darby doesn’t appear, the ref will raise MJF’s hand in victory as the past, present and future of pro-wrestling. “Get to counting, cue ball!” The ref counts, MJF wants him to speed up, and at 9, the lights go out!
IT’S STIIIIING~! And he has his baseball bat, too! MJF shoves Wardlow at Sting while he runs away! Sting SMACKS Wardlow with the bat! Wardlow gasps and sputters and Sting dares MJF to get in the ring. MJF fires up, throws off his scarf, jacket and shirt, storms right up to the apron, but then walks away again. Will the Salt of the Earth ever get some grit and face the consequences of his actions?
AEW returns with an interview with Anna Jay.
Schiavone speaks on the tough night for the Dark Order, and Jay starts to comment, but Britt Baker walks in! Britt says “But nothing, because what we witnessed tonight was the most elite faction in all of professional wrestling, The Super Kliq Baybay beat your loser friends, the Dark Order.” They are not losers! Uh, they literally lost, so they’re losers. And Jay is with them so she is a loser, too. She’s also sadly a follower, because she’s nothing without them and Tay Conti. So go have some kumbaya with them and come back when you’re ready. Jay ROCKS Britt with a right! These two brawl, referees rush in, and again Schiavone is in the area of chaos! Will Britt and Jay be joining in the fight of The Elite VS everyone else?
Penelope Ford w/ The Bunny VS Kiera Hogan!
The Superbad Girl wants in on the TBS Championship tournament while The Fire of Hotlanta is ready to heat everything up! Will Ford put Kiera out on her way to the gold?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Ford pulls hair to put Kiera in the corner, then lets off. Kiera points a finger gun, Ford shoves her but Kiera wraps on a headlock. Ford powers out, things speed up and Ford runs Kiera over! Things speed up again, Kiera jumps but Ford avoids the Thesz Press to arm-drag Kiera down! Ford has the cording hold and she grinds Kiera’s shoulder. Kiera fights up, throws body shots, then whips Ford to a corner. Kiera runs in and clotheslines, then brings Ford out, only for Ford to ROCK her with a forearm! Ford whips Kiera to the corner, back body checks, but Kiera dodges the boot to get a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!
Kiera drags Ford up but Ford throws forearms! Ford headlocks to BUCKLE BULLDOG! Ford then drags Kiera out to whip hard into ropes! Fans rally up as Ford paces and AEW goes picture in picture.
Ford shoves Kiera out of the ring, talks some trash and goes out after her. Ford chokes Kiera on the railing! The ref counts, Ford lets off with her hands, but Kiera shoves her away. Ford whips Kiera into railing! Ford smirks as she paces around, then she drags Kiera up to put her in the ring. Ford takes her time getting in then she covers, TWO! Ford grows annoyed but she drags Kiera up for a headlock. Ford puts Kiera on the ropes to choke her again! The ref counts as Ford thrashes around but she lets off to then KICK Kiera in the side. Ford puts Kiera in the ropes to HOTSHOT her! The ref reprimands as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Kiera has Ford up top. Kiera CHOPS Ford, climbs up to join her, CLUBS away on Ford’s back, then stands Ford up on the very top. Kiera climbs up to SUPERPLEX! Both women are down but fans fire up! A standing count begins, the two stir and Kiera staggers up as fans rally. Kiera grabs Ford but Ford ROCKS her with a forearm! Kiera CHOPS, Ford CHOPS back! Kiera forearms, Ford gives it back, but Kiera gets the edge! Kira CHOPS, runs, Ford dodges but Kiera comes back to clothesline! Kiera rallies and SHOTGUNS Ford into a corner! Kiera runs Around the World to BOOT WASH! Cover, TWO!
Kiera stays focused as she drags Ford up. Ford breaks free to STUNNER outta nowhere! Ford then fireman’s carries but Kiera fights free to straitjacket and CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives and Kiera can’t believe it! Kiera gets fire dup and fans rally as she brings Ford around. Ford throws another forearm, then runs, handspring and CUTTER! Then the SUPERBAD MUTA LOCK! Kiera endures but Ford thrashes her, Kiera taps! Ford wins!
Winner: Penelope Ford, by submission
But Ford doesn’t have time to celebrate, here comes Ruby! Ruby fires off hands on Ford, and The Bunny is nowhere to be seen! Ruby TOSSES Ford, then dares her to bring the fight. The Bunny returns to reinforce Ford but they both retreat. The TBS Championship Tournament is still on the horizon, will this be settled in the bracket?
AEW hears from Miro.
“First I get beat and now you do not answer. Is that funny to you? You know I love my wife, but I can’t go home like this. Does that amuse you? Have I displeased you? Have I not bowed enough? Kneeled enough? Not given your name enough praise?” Miro says God gave him a body of granite but a neck of sand, “Is that some kind of joke?!” Miro questions where his God has gone and why he has forsaken his champion! Miro is done pleading, but he is telling us all. Miro will be his champion or his enemy. If God stays silent over his head, he will continue to snap necks under his boot. Everyone will know pain until Miro becomes champion once again!
Schiavone is in the ring!
Full Gear will be on Saturday, November 13th, and by winning the Casino Ladder Match, this man has earned a world title match! He introduces Hangman Adam Page! Fans fire up to see the Anxious Millennial Cowboy as he heads to the ring. Schiavone says Hangman and Omega, they were long time tag team partners, and then they met in the finals of last year’s World Title Eliminator Tournament. Omega won, he became champion, but now Hangman has his chance!
Hangman takes the mic to say, “Damn I’m excited for Full Gear! And in 2019, my friends and I, we left our home in Ring of Honor, we left our home in New Japan, to start All Elite Wrestling. I was excited then because I believed in our vision. I believed we could and I believed we would change the world, but it feels like the world changed us.” It sure changed Hangman. He told all of us that he’d be the first AEW World Champion, and he failed. He lost to Jericho, he lost to PAC, then he started to lose a lot more. He lost his confidence, his friends, and truthfully, himself.
“But the one thing that it felt like, for whatever reason, that I never seemed to lose, the one thing that grew week after week,” was the fans chanting “COWBOY S*IT!” And fans chant it now! To Hangman, that’s real. #CowboyShit was him taking his shot on day one. It was him winning the tag team titles with Kenny Omega and defending them every chance they got. It was learning to let the past live in the past and accept new friends into his life. It was also taking Hangman’s chance and putting it on the line, sticking his neck out for those friends. And #CowboyShit was having the balls to turn around and go home for the birth of a beautiful baby boy.
Fans chant for Hangman more, and he says, “So last week, I finally picked up the phone, I put my body on the line, I climbed the ladder to grab the chip, to grab the shot at the one thing that’s eluded me this whole time.” To Hangman, that’s the thing. “When you fall off, you get back up on the horse, you keep on riding, you keep blazing on ahead, because to me, that’s COWBOY SHIT!” Now, Hangman isn’t a fortuneteller, he won’t predict how Full Gear will go. But despite that, Hangman feels like the fans still believe in him. Fans cheer because they do! And for the first time in Hangman’s life, so does he! Fans cheer that sentiment greatly!
So the promise Hangman makes is that he will give us everything! He will give us his heart, his soul, every fiber of his being, his blood, sweat and one way or another, even his tears. The one thing that he is 100% sure about, is that we will get #CowboyShit!! Will Hangman shoot his shot and finally hit the target to take the world title home?
Bryan Danielson VS Bobby Fish!
The American Dragon already went through hell facing Minoru Suzuki just last night, but he still came out on top. The Infamous One beat the Ace of Space in Lee Moriarty, but will Bryan go 2-0 this AEW weekend?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Fish throws a knee then a forearm, then body shots and a KICK! Bryan drops to a knee, crawls to ropes, but Fish brings him around for more knees. Fish headlocks, Bryan powers out but Fish runs him over! Fish KICKS Bryan in the back, drags him back up to snapmare and KICK again! Cover, TWO! Fish clamps on with a chinlock but Bryan slips right out to hammerlock. Bryan knees Fish in the back, drags him around and hooks up the legs, then fish hooks Fish’s face! The ref reprimands, Bryan lets go at 4, and then he STOMPS the legs down! Fish rolls to a corner, Bryan brings him up to wrench and hammerlock.
Fish backs Bryan in the corner, the ref calls for the ropebreak but Fish mule kicks. Fish backs away, but comes back to throw forearms!

Bryan ducks and dodges but Fish KICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Fish drags Bryan up, throws body shots, then whips Bryan to ropes. Bryan reverses but Fish KICKS back! And boots! Fish runs in but Bryan dumps him out! Bryan builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit into railing! Fans fire up with Bryan, “SI! SI! SI!” as Bryan drags Fish up and fireman’s carries.
Fish fights out and throws forearms! Then body shots! Bryan ducks to POST Fish! Bryan goes to the apron, runs in but Fish sweeps the legs! Bryan crashes and burns as AEW goes picture in picture!
Bryan clutches a leg, Fish catches his breath. Fish gets in the ring, the ring count climbs, but Bryan is still down at 5 of 10. Bryan drags himself up slowly, the count is 7, but Bryan is in at 8! Fish KICKS Bryan’s bad leg, then drags him to center for a KNEE JAMMER! Fish punches Bryan down, gets the leg again and GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! Bryan rolls to ropes, Fish goes out to drag Bryan to the corner, and he SLAMS the leg into the post! Fish talks some smack to fans in the front row, then SLAMS Bryan’s leg off the post again!

Fish come back to KICK the good leg, then throw more body shots and haymakers. The ref backs Fish up, Fish goes corner to corner and KNEES Bryan again!

AEW reveals the World Eliminator Title Brackets!
Eight men have been selected and this tournament starts next Friday with Rampage! We will see: Jon Moxley VS The Dark Order’s Preston Vance! Orange Cassidy VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs! Lance Archer VS Eddie Kingston! And Dustin Rhodes VS Bryan Danielson!! The American Dragon has his path to the title, can he make it through The Natural and all the other heavy hitters to go for the gold?
An awesome episode for Dynamite, a great start to their third year. Malakai VS Dante was a great opener, and I like that Malakai showed respect to Dante there. That with Lio being a bit domineering and making himself Dante’s tag partner, I feel like this is how they shift things from Dante being Lio’s protégé to being Malakai’s. And despite Malakai saying he was done with the American Nightmare, we’re still getting their tiebreaker third match. I still feel like this is all too soon for Cody and Arn. I like that Arn is trying to bring out the toughness and aggression within Cody, but again there is a bit of a rush in Cody’s story pacing that isn’t needed.
The Inner Circle has a fairly good promo segment with American Top Team and Men of the Year, but just a 10 Man Tag seems too easy. I’m thinking Lambert comes back next week with the “demands,” which will be the stipulation that brings things up a notch. There was good overlapping of things with The Elite and their enemies, going after Jurassic Express before that awesome trios match with The Dark Order. Naturally, the Super Kliq wins, they’re going to be racking up wins. I bet they could even lead the way into a trios division at this point.
FTR being the “luchadores” Andrade enlisted is a bit disappointing, but I’m sure there were reasons actual AAA wrestlers couldn’t show up to take those titles off The Lucha Brothers. Maybe there will be a match for both sets of belts at Full Gear. MJF of course pretended he had no idea about last week’s attack on Darby, but if he keeps treating Wardlow like this, that guy is totally leaving the Pinnacle. But at the same time, we might get MJF & Wardlow VS Sting & Darby before this is all said and done. Miro delivers a good promo where his faith is basically shaken and now he’s angry. I’m a little surprised he wasn’t in the World Title Eliminator but I suppose he can do more if he’s battling anyone and everyone he can on Dynamite and Rampage.
Shida and Deeb have a good brawl, as do Britt and Jay. We’re getting Britt and Jay for Rampage next week but I bet we see Shida and Deeb some time before the TBS Championship Tournament to see if that 50th win happens. Ford VS Kiera was good but it felt a bit awkward at times. This was probably the first time these two really interacted in the ring, maybe next time will be smoother. Ruby gets a bit of payback on Ford but again, the TBS Championship Tournament is where things get settled for those two, as well. We then get a great promo from Hangman to really hype up his match with Omega, I am hoping we get a response from Omega next week.
Bryan VS Fish was a great main event, though a bit shorter than expected. Naturally, Bryan wins so that he can go strong into the World Title Eliminator Tournament. All of those matches are great, and it is a great opportunity for Preston Vance. Moxley will surely win that, though, and he’ll likely face Orange Cassidy. Cassidy clearly wasn’t happy seeing Moxley squash Yuta like that, and I would think he gets past Will Hobbs. That makes for an awesome semifinal, and we’ll surely see Bryan in the final four, too.
My Score: 9.2/10
Mitchell’s WWE 205 Live Results & Report! (10/15/21)
A STRONG 205 Live!
The Cruiserweight Champion is back on 205 Live!
The Diamond Mine is looking to take over NXT, and that continues here on 205 Live as Cruiserweight Champion, Roderick Strong, is in action!
- Jeet Rama VS Boa w/ Tian Sha; Boa wins.
- Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen VS Keegan Scott & Taylor Garland; Briggs & Jensen win.
- Roderick Strong w/ Diamond Mine VS Odyssey Jones; Strong wins.
Good to see another of the Superstar Spectacle recruits from India returning, and Rama had a very good showing against Boa. Of course Briggs & Brooks get a win over jobbers to keep them going. They should’ve been doing that this whole time, really, instead of getting in on that tag title match last week. The Cruiserweight Champion should have been on 205 Live a lot more often so it’s good to see Strong having part in an episode. Strong VS Jones was a really good match, Jones having a really good showing because of his size and strength, but naturally Diamond Mine plays their part to help Strong out.
Strong finishing it with running forearm after running forearm then his jumping knee was great stuff. If one thing, this shows the Cruiserweights cannot be underestimated, something extremely rare in Vince’s beef centric world.
My Score: 8/10
