Naito avoids the STO, but not DARKNESS FALLS! Cover, TWO!! Naito survives and fans fire up again! Evil is frustrated but he vows to end this! Evil drags Naito up, spins him around, but Naito fights the STO off!

Evil still tries but Naito throws more elbows! Fans rally more as Naito has the arm. Naito throws more elbows, Evil drops, but Naito keeps on him. Naito brings Evil up, throws even more elbows, but Dick gets in! Naito CLOBBERS Dick first! Naito kicks Dick out, Evil ducks elbows to LOW BLOW!! Fans rally up as Naito slowly rolls to ropes. Evil grabs the chair waiting for him in the corner, and Dick distracts Red Shoes with a different chair! Red Shoes sees Evil, though, and stops him! But Dick gets the Naito with the SPOILER CHOKER! Naito elbows free and sweeps the legs! Dick is down, Naito dodges and enziguris Evil! Evil reverses the whip but Naito hits leaping forearms!

Fans fire up more as Naito scoops Evil. Evil slips out, spins, but Naito slips out to DESTINO!! Cover, TWO?!!? Fans are thunderous as Naito drags Evil up again. Naito wrenches, tilt-o-whirl but EVERYTHING IS EVIL!! Cover, EVIL WINS!!

Winner: EVIL, by pinfall; gains 2 points, Naito earns 0

Evil has the tiebreaker! And not just in their series, but in this G1! BOTH men are at 5-2, with 10 points!! Evil grabs the mic to say, “Oi, Naito! You saw that? That was my brand of justice! This G1 is MINE! Remember that! Everything is Evil! It’s rrrrreeeeal~!” Is the King of Darkness going to conquer the block and the finals? Or will the last two rounds be a saving grace for the IWGP Double Champion?

 

Here are the NEW B Block standings!

EVIL: 5-2, 10 points
Tetsuya Naito: 5-2, 10 points
SANADA: 4-3, 8 points
Hirooki Goto: 4-3, 8 points
Zack Sabre Jr: 4-3, 8 points
Hiroshi Tanahashi: 3-4, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Toru Yano: 3-4, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Juice Robinson: 3-4, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
KENTA: 3-4, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
YOSHI-HASHI: 1-6, 2 points [ELIMINATED]


My Thoughts:

A great round for B Block, but I feel like the Naito VS Evil tiebreaker was third of their series. The most exciting part was the fact Evil won and changes the entire dynamic of the block. It just seemed Naito and Evil were taking it easy because they still need to make it to the end of the round robin. But with Evil VS Sanada still coming, and how Sanada already has a win over Naito, it’d be wild if Sanada won and took the block from Evil. Another big shocker was perhaps Goto taking the win from Tanahashi to keep going. Kenta and Yano may have been more comedy than anything but it was a lot of great comedy. Kenta being KOPW 2020 would be great, especially if he and Jon Moxley cross paths over the US Championship. There have been a lot of “Winner Takes All” things, so why not have it be winner takes all on KOPW trophy and IWGP US Championship. Of course, that depends if Mox is meant to retain when he finally defends his title or not, but it’d be great to at least suggest him being Mr. KOPW could happen.

My Score: 9.2/10

PLAY BY PLAY

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

The RawEST Women’s Champion has the Empress of Tomorrow and the Five Foot Fury backing her up because we all know DMG CTRL doesn’t roll alone! Bianca gets the mic to say, “Y’know, Bayley, I really considered coming out here and challenging you again tonight. I mean, why wait for Extreme Rules? But then I remembered that you would never make this just about you and I. And even if you did come out here and accepted my challenge, it wouldn’t be you alone. I learn from my mistakes, and it was not about to be three on one again, especially not after last week.”

Bayley could’ve faced Alexa 1v1 but no. Iyo & Dakota had to interfere again because Bayley can’t fight her battles alone. So Bayley, Bianca will say this: If Bayley wants the title at Extreme Rules, then good luck. Because her girls will be watching Bayley’s girls to make sure this stays between the two of them. But here comes DMG CTRL makes their way out. Bayley thought Bianca would’ve learned her lesson last week. This will never be just about the two of them because it is bigger than the two of them. Bayley wouldn’t expect the fans to understand, either.

Bianca was groomed, handpicked and trained to be a champion. But those like DMG CTRL had to groom themselves, train themselves, and dreamt about this since they were 12 years old! Bayley said she would take over the WWE and that is what she’s doing! Yes, Bianca is in this position, she’s thriving, she’s accomplished all these things, but she was placed, picked, chosen. “Girl… Uh-uh.” Bianca has earned everything, nothing was handed to her. She’s here because she’s been showing up and showing out. Where’s Bayley been? Rehabbing?

Now, Bianca is sorry Bayley got hurt but she’s not sorry Bayley came back to Bianca as champion. Bianca will not belittle herself to go down to Bayley’s level. Bayley tells fans to shut up! She WAS injured, she DID get hurt. She couldn’t even walk 10 months ago, but she taught herself how to walk again, and how to run again. And Bayley pinned Bianca at Clash at the Castle! Something NO ONE had done in over 300 days! So yes, Bayley was injured, that’s why she wasn’t here. So fall in line like everyone else!

Bianca says no no no. Last time Bianca checked, Bayley WAS here when Bianca reached the top of her game. When Bianca main evented WrestleMania, Bayley WAS here. And the last 1v1 match these two had, Bianca KOD’d Bayley onto a ladder. Bianca gets it, though. She understands why Bayley returned with back-up. It’s because Bayley wasn’t ready to face a champion like Bianca alone. Bayley says, “Y’know what?” But then fans taunt and boo and that upsets Bayley.

“We’re not talking about the past, okay? The past is the past and I’m sick of you running your mouth.” But Bayley just got a great idea! At Extreme Rules, she feels like winning the Raw Women’s Championship in a LADDER MATCH. Fans cheer that ide and Bianca even smiles. Consider the ante up. But since Bianca can’t have Bayley, she’ll get extreme with Iyo tonight! Let’s go! Iyo nods and hands her belt over to Kai. She calls for the ref while the others exit, and the bell rings! For Iyo to turn around into a SHOTGUN dropkick!

Fans boo but then Bianca trips Sky up with the ponytail! HANDSPRING- NO, Sky avoids the moonsault to kick, run, QUEBRADA, but into a scoop and SLAM! HANDSPRING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Sky survives again and Bayley is stressing out. Bianca glares at Bayley, stalks Sky, and she drags Sky up into a torture rack. “This is Awesome!” as Sky fights the KOD!

KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!!

A big win over the Genius of the Sky! Bianca is ready to fly, will Bayley regret choosing a Ladder Match for their showdown?

Someone arrives in the back.

It’s Solo Sikoa & Sami Zayn! They’re here so the Honorary Uce can face AJ Styles, will he make the Phenomenal One pay for the disrespect shown to the Bloodline?

Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Last week, when Seth Rollins attacked Matt Riddle, that helped The Judgement Day defeat him and Rey. Part of that was also Dominik daring Rey to hit him, even kneeling and begging him to do it. What is going on in Rey’s mind right now? Kevin Patrick’s a father, yeah? So he knows there’s nothing like holding your newborn child in your arms. Wanting to give them the world, watching them grow up, envisioning the kind of person they’ll become, always wanting the best for them, no matter what. Rey will always love Dom, and he will never, under any circumstances, fight him.

But last week, when Dom gave him that chance, Rey wondered what happened to the kid he raised. He could not recognize this man Dom has become. Rey knows deep down inside, this is not Dominik. It can’t be! This is Rhea manipulating Dom’s heart and mind. But Rey can’t let that sway his focus. Tonight, Rey takes on Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins, and he needs to be at his best. Rey’s had his fair share of battles with Rollins, and he knows how savage Rollins can be. Rollins wanted to do more than just injure Riddle last week.

Rey may have mercy for his own flesh and blood, but with everything going on his head right now, there is no mercy for Rollins. Will the King of Lucha be able to take out all his anger on the Visionary?

The Miz meets with security backstage.

“Alright, gentlemen. I have recruited you for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am offering a prize package worht up to one MILLION dollars, including but not limited to an exclusive cameo in the upcoming spinoff movie of the Marine franchise, gift cards accepted at most department stores, a certified pre-owned vehicle, and career advice from yours truly, which in and of itself is worth $2 million.”

Now he did not want big, bulky, muscular dumb security, he wants smart and stealthy! That is why he chose them. They are not just elite security professionals, no! They are MIZFORCE! Say it with him! “MIZFORCE!” Again! “MIZFORCE!” One more time! “MIZFORCE!” Now go! Find He Who Shall Not Be Named and make sure he is not here! GO GO GO! The guards hurry off, but will MIZFORCE find Dexter Lumis before Lumis finds Miz?

Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio!

The Visionary has pushed things with Matt Riddle so far, they’re going into the FIGHT PIT at Extreme Rules! Will Rollins sharpen his edge at the expense of the King of Lucha? Or will he suffer for everything Judgement Day has put Rey through instead?

Before the match, Rollins gets the mic and fans sing his song, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Rollins welcomes Edmonton to Monday Night Rollins! And he is our host for the festivities. He is a visionary, he is a revolutionary, he is Seth “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins should be here as the NEW United States Champion, But the only reason he is not, that reason has a name that Rollins doesn’t even wanna say. But he is not champion now because of Matt Riddle!

Last week, Rollins had Lashley in the center of the ring, dead to rights, but Riddle made Rollins take his eye off the ball for one single second, and it cost him! Riddle has been a thorn in Rollins’ side for months, but that is the last time! In two weeks, they finish this at Extreme Rules inside… THE FIGHT PIT! Fans like the sound of that! Some even chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” But then the singing of “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” drowns that out. Rollins has to be honest, though, this past week, Rollins has heard the whispers and read the tweets. No one thinks he stands a chance!

Everyone says the Fight Pit is Riddle’s match. Rollins had to go home and take a long look in the mirror. Rollins came to the harsh conclusion that he’s SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! It doesn’t matter what kind of match it is! Cage match, Hell in a Cell, Tables, Ladders, Rollins has been in every single type of match you can imagine, and he’s won ’em all! As good as Riddle may be inside the cage, he has nothing on Rollins. Rollins has one thing Riddle will never have: his brain! His Einstein level acumen for the fight game!

Extreme Rules may be Rollins’ first time inside the Fight Pit, but he’ll tell us this. “When all the dust settles, Riddle is gonna be flat on his back, and the entire world is gonna be singing my song, calling me the King of the Fight Pit!” Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins knows Riddle is watching, so Riddle better take notes. Rollins is going to give “Father of the Year,” Rey Mysterio the beating he is too much of a coward to give his own son! HAHAHAHAH! But with that Rey makes his entrance! Will Rey show who’s really the coward here?

Rey DROPKICKS Rollins the moment he’s in the ring! The ref tries to stop Rey but Rollins bails out. Rollins is furious and throwing a fit, but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Rollins puts Rey in a corner to grind his forearms in. Rollins talks trash, stomps away and digs his boot in, but the ref counts. Rollins lets off, and wipes the blood from the cut on his forehead. That’s from Rey spiking Rollins off steel steps. Rollins CLAWS Rey’s back, then he fishhooks Rey’s nose! Rollins lets off as the ref reprimands, but he ROCKS Rey to a corner. Rollins whips Rey corner to corner but Rey goes up and over then tilt-o-whirls and RANAS! Rey fires off on Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses, only for Rey to KICK him away. Rey runs but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER!

Rey writhes and Rollins seethes while fans rally. Rollins stalks Rey to ropes, drags him up and ROCKS him in the back. Rollins looms over Rey, drags Rey up and ROCKS him again. Then Rollins reels Rey in for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Rollins snarls as Rey crawls to the apron. Rollins drags Rey up but Rey counter punches! Rey fires off haymakers, slingshots up and over to a sunset flip, TWO! Rollins CLOBBERS Rey! Fans rally and duel as Rollins stalks Rey.

Rollins kicks Rey around, then kicks him to a corner. Rollins CHOPS Rey, whips him corner to corner, then runs in to forearm smash! Rey flops down and Rollins conducts the “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Fans boo, too, though, and that upsets Rollins. Rey stands up, Rollins runs corner to corner, but Rey dodges! Rollins hits buckles and then Rey fires off haymakers! Rey RAMS Rollins, whips but Rollins reverses. Rey drop toeholds to send Rollins into buckles! Rey then climbs up and rains down fists on that bloody forehead! Fans count all the way to TEN, and Rey gives us some Latino Heat!

Rey follows Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses. Rey holds ropes, elbows back then springboards, but Rollins catches him to a fireman’s carry! GUTBUSTER DROP! Rey flounders but Rollins drags him up to slide him out! Rey belly flops onto the floor and Rollins goes out after him. But here comes Dominik, with a chair! Is Dom here to attack Rollins for their past? Or is he here to watch his father suffer? Dom pats Rollins on the shoulder, so it’s the latter as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins whips Rey HARD into the corner! Dom is sitting ringside now to watch as Rollins drags Rey out onto the apron. Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, then lets off to line up a shot. Rollins BOOTS Rey into the ring! Rollins offers a fist bump, and Dom takes it! Fans boo them both but Rollins goes into the ring. Rollins tells Dom to watch this. Rollins drags Rey up to snap suplex! Uno Amigo! And then another snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Rollins drags Rey up again, gives some Latino Heat, and suplexes again, but Rey throws knees! Rey makes it a DDT!

Dom isn’t as happy watching now with Rey and Rollins both down. Rey gets up, adjusts his mask and goes to a corner. Rey climbs, but Rollins Electric Chair Lifts him off the corner! Rollins turns Rey around but Rey RANAS Rollins into the buckles! Fans fire up while both men are down again! Rey goes to the apron and fans fire up as he climbs. But Rollins ROCKS Rey first! Rollins climbs up, brings Rey up, but Rey throws body shots! Rey HEADBUTTS Rollins away, but Rollins springs right back up! Rey fights with body shots and shoves Rollins away again! Then SEATED SENTONS!

Rey keeps moving, he ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Rollins survives the sudden turnaround but Rey keeps moving. Rey slides under but Rollins catches him, only for Rey to victory roll! TWO, and Rey dropkicks Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins gets up to get Rey in position, BUCKLE BOMB! And FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Rey survives and Dom is annoyed. Rollins goes to ropes, drags himself up, and thinks what he has to do to keep Rey down. Rey flounders, Rollins aims, but Rey avoids the stomp! Rollins kicks low, but Rey fights the underhooks!

Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, gets him up, but Rey fights and RANAS Rollins out of the ring! Fans fire up and Rey builds speed to SLIDING SPLASH! Direct hit on Rollins and Dom stands up in frustration! Rey puts Rollins in the ring, hurries up the corner again, FLYING SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives and Dom sits back down. Fans taunt Dom with “Dominik’s Useless!” Rey dropkick Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins ducks the 619! Rey hurries after Rollins but Rollins shoulders in! Rollins GOURDBUSTERS Rey down!

Rollins climbs up the corner slowly, and Rey trips him up! Rey climbs up after Rollins now, fires some haymakers, then goes up to SUPER- NO! Rollins blocks the Steiner and swings Rey back up! SUPER STEINER AFTER ALL!! Rollins flounders to ropes, 619!! But Rey hit Rollins so hard, Rollins flounders to the far side of the ring! Rey hurries to the apron, and he FLYING RANAS Rollins down again! But Dom gets up and has the chair! Rey turns around to see Dom, and the ref tells Dom no. Dom drops the chair, but then dares Rey to use it now!

Fans boo, Dom is just distracting Rey! Rollins distracts the ref, RHEA RIPLEY POSTS Rey!! Dom puts Rey in the ring for Rollins to CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs as he puts Rey in a PERUVIAN NECKTIE!! Rey is OUT, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by submission

The Visionary gets to show off his new hold, not that he had to! That was a message to Riddle that Rollins can grapple just like him. But it also shows that The Judgement Day had to help Rollins out. Will The Visionary survive when he has to beat The Bro on his own? As for Rey, is there no reaching Dom anymore?

But speaking of Matt Riddle, he’s watching this backstage.

The Bro’s attention is trained on Rollins, so when someone pats him on the shoulder, he freaks out! Oh, it’s Bobby Lashley. Don’t scare him like that, bro. Didn’t think you were silent but deadly. You gotta keep your head on a swivel around here, y’know? Lashley gets it. He just wants to wish Riddle luck against Damian Priest tonight, not that Riddle needs it. And Lashley also heard what Rollins was saying about The Fight Pit. The MMA guys know what it’s like, but Rollins doesn’t. It’s either you tap out, or you get knocked out. That’s what Rollins fears, so don’t let him get away on this one.

Riddle says he’s not letting Rollins get away. Riddle will fight him, submit him, knock him out, Rollins ain’t going anywhere. Alright. One more thing: Lashley knows Riddle wanted to help Lashley last week, but he should never do that again. “My bad, Bobby.” Well, Riddle has Rollins where he wants him, so knock his teeth out! Damn straight, bro! Riddle is fired up now. Will The Bro take the fight to the Punisher before entering the Pit?

Johnny Gargano & Kevin Owens head for gorilla.

Along the way, they find one of the MIZFORCE guards knocked out cold! Is that a bad sign for The Miz?

Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy!

The Prizefighter and Johnny Wrestling have been putting Austin Theory in his place, and that doesn’t sit well with his pals, Chad Gable & Otis. “Master” Gable and #4PointOtis are waving American flags in Canada to try and make a point, but will it be homefield advantage for KO?

The teams sort out and Gargano starts against Gable. They tie up, Gable headlocks, spins and hammerlocks to a drop toehold. Gable then floats back to a headlock and grinds the hold. Gargano powers up and out, Gable runs him over, ‘A THANK YEW~!” Things speed up, fans sing “GA-BLE~, GABLE GABLE GABLE~… GA-BLE~! GA-BLE~!” as Gargano RANAS and wheelbarrows Gable to an arm-drag! Then a DROPKICK! Fans fire up as Gable scrambles away. Tag to Otis and Gargano winds up to tag Kevin! Fans fire up as Kevin and Otis circle.

Kevin and Otis tie up, Kevin headlocks but Otis powers out. They RAM shoulders but neither falls. Kevin runs and RAMS Otis but almost bounces off! Otis nods, so Kevin DROPKICKS him!

Kevin whips, atomic drops and LARIATS Gable down! Kevin DECKS Otis, corner clotheslines Gable then runs to LARIAT! Fans fire up, Gable is in the corner, “SUCK IT!” CANNONBALL! Kevin then hauls Gable up, AOI SHOUDOU! Cover, TWO!! Gable survives but Kevin hurries to a corner. Kevin climbs, leaps, SWANTON onto knees!! Kevin writhes and Gable crawls to the other corner. Gable climbs up now, and MOONSAULTS! He has to land out as Kevin moves, but he blocks the superkick. Gable spins Kevin around, Kevin fights the waistlock.

Kevin kicks low but Gable denies the Stunner! Kevin comes back to trip Gable, and he steps through! Fans fire up for the SHARPSHOOTER! Gable endures, flails, reaches around, but Kevin drags Gable away! Otis runs in to CLOBBER Kevin! Fans boo but Otis tells them to “SUCK IT!” Gable and Kevin crawl for their corners, hot tag to Gargano! Gargano DROPKICKS Otis down, then he swings a kick. Gable ducks it and waistlocks but Gargano switches. Gable switches back but Gargano switches again, only for Gable to switch one more time. Gargano bucks the O’Conner Roll while tagging in Kevin!

Otis runs at Kevin, but Kevin sends him into steel steps! SUPERKICK but Otis stays up! SUPERKICK, and now Otis is on the desk! Kevin goes to the barrier and climbs up! MACHO ELBOW through the table!! Fans are losing their minds while Gable and Gargano stand in the ring. Gargano fires off forearms, then a ROLLING- THROAT CHOP from Gable!

Gable spins now but Gargano mule kicks. Gable blocks the lariat, but not the DISCUS LEFT!! Fans fire up with Gargano and he goes to the corner. Gargano aims and powers up, but THEORY swipes at him! Fans boo, Gable hits a ROLLING ELBOW! And then a CLIFFHANGER DDT!! Cover, TWO!?!? Gargano survives and shocks Theory! Gable is also furious, so he kicks Gargano out of the ring. Theory takes a swing but misses! SUPERKICK takes Theory down! Gargano GAMAN- NO, Gable blocks! But Gargano ducks his clothesline to slingshot, ONE FINAL BEAT!! Cover, Gargano & Kevin win!!

Winners: Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano, by pinfall

The long awaited debut of #PandaExpress is a success! The Academy and Mr. MITB couldn’t stop them, will Kevin and Gargano soon find themselves heading for some gold?

AJ Styles heads to gorilla.

More MIZFORCE guards are down and out but Styles shrugs it off. Kevin Patrick finds him, though, and asks that before facing Sami Zayn, can Styles explain why he rejected Finn Balor’s offer to join Judgement Day? Has everyone forgotten what The Judgement Day did to Styles? To get respect, you gotta show respect. Styles has been on his own for a while now and… Finn appears! Finn says he comes in peace as Styles’ friend. We all know the importance of having friends around here, right?

Finn says The Judgement Day has achieved so much already. But with Styles, him and Finn together, they could change the business again! Okay, hear him out. Styles has a match with Sami Zayn, right? And Sami’s got back up in Solo Sikoa. So as a friend, the Judgement Day would like to offer Styles an olive branch. Styles says they’ll watch his back? Yeah! Styles says he can watch is own back.

Omos & MVP head to gorilla now.

The Nigerian Giant continues to dominate, just how many men will be sent to the slaughter this time?

Theory regroups with The Alpha Academy backstage.

What happened out there? He thought they were the masters of success! Where was the success? Gable says his number one guy, Otis, hasn’t been 100% since throwing down with that “moron,” Braun Strowman! If not for that two ton doofus, the Academy would’ve schooled those fools. Well y’know what, Chad? It would’ve been good to know that before he got hit in the jaw. But they gotta get even with Kevin & Gargano. Gargano’s not gonna embarrass Theory twice in a dump like Canada!

But then Theory gets a phone call. Hello? It’s for Gable. It is? Well, okay. Gable is in high demand. Hello? “A two ton doofus, huh? Bet you think you’re real funny.” Braun promises Gable he won’t be laughing next week, beause the Monster of All Monsters is coming for him in his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota! That way, they won’t have to fly Gable’s body home for his funeral! Sh-sh-shoosh please… Theory says Gable’s got this. But Otis, Gargano tried to big dog you out there and you gotta let him know who you are! What you represent! What you’re gonna do!

Next week, Otis VS Gargano, and it’ll be Gargano’s last match because of Otis! It’ll be the end of Gargano’s very short and sad career. Otis is fired up but Gable is dreading next week. Will the Academy’s teacher go into early retirement?

Handicap Match: Omos w/ MVP VS Joey Gibson & Fred Lester!

Montel Vontavius Porter is sitting with commentary at the reconstructed desk, and the Nigerian Giant against stares down two mere mortals. Will either one of these men survive the night?

The bell rings, Omos choke grips Gibson, and keeps Lester from running away! Omos SHOVES them both out of the ring! Omos then goes out, drags Joey Gibson up and RAMS him into steel steps!

Finn Balor talks with Judgement Day backstage.

They all trust each other, right? Then trust him about Styles. Styles is gonna come around. Kevin Patrick walks over to ask Damian Priest if he might hold back against his former friend in Riddle tonight. Rhea asks back, “What’s with the dumbass questions?” Priest says yeah, what’s he supposed to say? Of course he’s NOT holding back. And he’s gonna have zero remorse! KP said it himself, Riddle’s a former friend. This right here, this is his crew! This is his family. Rhea’s said it time and again, the Judgement Day runs Raw! So as far as Priest is concerned, Riddle is just running his brains into the clouds like always.

Just look at this past year! Riddle spent most of it pretending to be Randy Orton! And now Rollins has Riddle so confused, Riddle thinks he’s in the UFC. “Yo, Riddle. You’re not a Viper. You’re not a cage fighter anymore. And you sure as hell aren’t my friend. Tonight like everyone else, you Riddle, will fall while the Judgement Day will rise. Nothing personal, bro.” The Judgement Day laughs, but will they have the last laugh in the end?

Sami Zayn w/ Solo Sikoa VS AJ Styles!

As he shows off, the Honorary Uce has his own official shirt! He is truly accepted into the Bloodline, but will he be able to defend their honor against the Phenomenal One? Or will Styles show that shirts don’t amount to much?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sami backs away to a corner as fans cheer him on, but Styles tunes that out. They tie up, Sami headlocks, and fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE OLE~!” Styles powers out, Sami RAMS him and knocks him over! Sami holds up the finger, #WeTheOnes!

Fans fire up, Styles springboards, but Sami gets under! Styles runs back in, into a BUCKLE- NO, Styles victory rolls the exploder! TWO!! Sami runs in, Styles catches him to snap suplex Sami into buckles!

Both men are down but Sami bails out to where Solo is again. Styles storms over and stares Solo down while he drags Sami up. Styles puts Sami in, he glares at Solo, then goes back inside the ring. Sami BOOTS Styles, and reels him in for a BLUE THUDNER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Sami can’t believe it but this is why Styles is a WWE Grand Slam Champion! Styles crawls to a corner, Sami runs in and fires off haymakers! Sami hoists Styles up, but Styles throws hands in return! Styles reels Sami in, TORNADO- NO, Sami blocks that to suplex, and ORANGE CRUSH! Cover, TWO!!

Sami is furious that Styles survives! Styles bails out but Sami hurries out after him! Sami POSTS Styles, and again! And then he TOSSES Styles over the barriers!

The ref reprimands, Sami lets go and distracts the ref, and Solo YANKS Styles down for an APRON URENAGE! Fans boo but Sami smiles as he knows Solo just helped him out. HELLUVA KICK!! Cover, Sami wins!!

Winner: Sami Zayn, by pinfall

Getting an assist in the win, Sami really IS in the Bloodline now! Solo “The Enforcer” does his job, will he, Sami and all of the Bloodline take over WWE?

Wait, here comes The Judgement Day! And of course, Finn has a mic to say, “AJ, AJ, AJ. It pains me to see you like this, bro. And I can’t help but think that if you had accepted our offer earlier, the outcome of this match may have been a little bit different. You deserve so much better than this, AJ. You deserve it, man. So seeing as I’m a fair and generous person, I’m asking you as a friend to rise up and join the Judgement Day.” Finn offers a hand, Styles thinks for a moment, but he stands up on his own. Finn throws up the Too Sweet, maybe Styles will accept that. Styles throws up the middle finger instead!

So Finn attacks Styles! As do Priest and Dom! They mug Styles, Rhea gets a chair, and Finn puts the chair around Styles’ head! Rhea holds it in place, Finn runs up, but Finn stops short of the stomp. Finn says he could’ve ended Styles’ career, but he’s Styles’ friend. This is NOT what friends do. The Judgement Day loom over Styles, having given him the most menacing of ultimatums. Will the Phenomenal One stay a lone wolf? Or will he join the wolf pack that is The Judgement Day?

Bianca, Alexa & Asuka are having fun backstage.

They’re all excited after Bianca’s big win over Iyo Sky, and then Candice finds them! Candice hopes Bianca shuts Bayley up at Extreme Rules. Oh, Bianca definitely will. And congratulations on the debut victory! Candice thanks Bianca, but then “DING DONG! Uh, why don’t you two shut up?” Bayley says compliments are just jealousy in disguise. And bullies are just cowards in disguise. Oh, Candice’s feeling real confident after one win here, huh? They can change that. Dakota says Bayley has the title match to worry about. Candice says Dakota doesn’t.

Bayley knows Candice is new here, but DMG CTRL runs things. If Candice wants a match with Dakota, just wait for next week. And Bianca, see you at Extreme Rules. Oh, they don’t have to wait for that. Things get heated but everyone backs down. Will the Poison Pixie sting #CobraKai? Will this all explode before Extreme Rules?

Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day!

Rollins made sure Rey & Riddle didn’t win last week, but Riddle will let him off the hook until Extreme Rules. Will the Bro get his “brovenge” on the Punisher? Or will the Judgement Day just keep on rolling roughshod through Raw?

The bell rings and Riddle circles with Priest. The fans chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” and Riddle smirks. Riddle and Priest tie up, Priest puts Riddle in the corner but Riddle pushes back. They go along the ropes, into another corner, but Priest shoves Riddle down. Priest dares Riddle to come back and they circle again.

My Thoughts:

A great episode tonight with so much set up for Extreme Rules. Especially with basically all the matches now having a stipulation, as is the point of Extreme Rules the PPV concept. Great opening segment with the Raw Women’s Championship story, and I like that it’ll be a Ladder match between Bianca and Bayley. It won’t be about pinning or submitting, which can definitely be to Bayley’s advantage since she needed DMG CTRL to pin Bianca, and can even have them help her cheat in winning the match.

Great to see Candice LeRae now joining her husband here on Raw, and it works on multiple levels that she beat Nikki. Nikki’s been just circling a breaking point that could reset her to SAnitY Nikki. Candice also getting in on the DMG CTRL story is cool, there’s a lot of possibilities here. Speaking of Johnny Wrestling, Gargano & Kevin had a great match against Alpha Academy, and of course Theory got involved. It bites him in the butt, The Academy loses, and then we get a good segment where Gable sticks his foot in his mouth. Gable is gonna get squashed by Braun, Gargano is going to have an awesome match with Otis, but I bet Theory also gets involved with that one.

Omos crushes more jobbers, but MVP was calling out Braun, so maybe Omos goes after Braun after he’s done with Gable? Omos VS Braun has potential, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they do the ring breaking superplex spot like back in the day. Great stuff out of Miz and his “MIZFORCE,” but of course MIZFORCE was going to get taken out by Lumis. At some point, Lumis has to draw a picture to illustrate what kind of match he wants with Miz, or just what he wants with Miz period.

Great match from Styles VS Sami, showing there is cross-brand storytelling with The Bloodline. I also like that there is more blending of stories as Finn keeps trying to recruit Styles. Styles refuses and pays for it, and then we get a great match between Riddle and Priest. Riddle winning with the Spladle is great because it keeps this going while still giving Riddle momentum going into the Fight Pit. Edge making his return is great, and him challenging Finn to an I Quit is wild. I cannot wait to see this one. The HHH Era is awesome!

My Score: 8.8/10
