PLAY BY PLAY

Kevin Owens heads to the ring!

It doesn’t matter that he brawled with Jey Uso and then got blindsided by Roman Reigns, the Prizefighter is still here because he will #JustKeepFighting! Kevin says he has been waiting all week and won’t wait a minute longer! He wants Roman to get out to the ring and have it out! Or is Roman not ready yet? That’s fine, because Kevin needs to say something. Roman sent a message to the Owens family, and Kevin heard that message loud and clear. Kevin did have a talk with his family, but what he told them was not to watch the Universal Championship match at TLC. Not because Kevin is afraid of what will happen to him, but he’s afraid of how the family will think of him after what he does to Roman!

Is Roman still not ready? Speaking of what kids might think, Kevin remembers Roman tell Jey that Roman cares how their sons look at them. Bad news, Roman: If Roman’s kids judge him based on his actions lately, they already know that their dad “is nothing but a hypocrite.” Roman says he’s the head of the table but had to jump Kevin from behind and used Jey as a pawn! “And that is absolutely pathetic.” Kevin knows how Roman looks at himself in the mirror. Roman knows deep down he’s just a coward. Heyman gets on screen instead and tells Kevin to just stop. Are we going to do this dance again? Roman doesn’t come out on Kevin’s time but on his own time.

Heyman confesses that he made a mistake about Kevin. Last week on Talking Smack, Heyman said Kevin should “marinate in the mindset of being mutilated” because Heyman thought Kevin was a masochist. To come back after what happened, he must be! But that’s fine, because Roman is a sadist. Especially when it comes to put a beating on Kevin. But that is what Heyman got wrong. Kevin isn’t a masochist but a martyr, willing to pay any price for the cause of being champion. That makes him very dangerous. So mutilation won’t stop Kevin, which leaves elimination, eradication.

Yeah well none of that is happening! Kevin has had it with the BS coming out of Heyman’s face. If Roman won’t meet Kevin, Kevin is going to go find Roman! The hunt is on again! But will Kevin get the drop on Roman this time? Or will we see a repeat of last week?

 

SmackDown returns and Adam Pearce is talking and walking with Kevin Owens.

Obviously Pearce on behalf of management doesn’t want Kevin to go after Roman like this. Not this close to TLC. Kevin can just wait two days and have his match! Just think about this, Kevin! Kevin goes to Roman’s door, but it’s locked. And Roman is already heading to the ring! It seems Roman circumvented Kevin completely! Kevin can only scowl at the television screen as the Universal Champion and his Special Counsel stand amidst the tables, ladders and chairs at ringside. Heyman fetches a mic for the Tribal Chief, and he tells “KO, I don’t want to hurt you. I don’t want to hurt your family. But you’re running around here, and you’re telling the whole world that I’m a bad guy.”

Roman isn’t a bad guy. He’s just doing what you have to in order to be THE Guy. It’s something above Kevin’s paygrade, so Kevin should just stay in his lane. In fact, Roman will show he’s a good guy by giving Kevin the same chance that he gave his own flesh and blood. “Acknowledge me as your Tribal Chief.” But Kevin storms from the television and back to gorilla! If Kevin acknowledges Roman’s authority, then it’s all good. But if Kevin doesn’t, or just can’t accept that, “I’m going to end you.” Kevin won’t even make it out of the ThunderDome tonight. Kevin needs to get down to the ring and apologize, and say what Roman wants him to say.

Kevin does return and storms down the ring! He doesn’t look like he’s going to apologize. But JEY attacks from behind! Jey and Kevin scrap at the ramp but Roman goes out and knocks Kevin down! The Bloodline stomps Kevin and rains down rights! They keep after him like sharks with blood in the water! Roman digs Kevin’s face into the ramp as he rains down furious forearms! Fans give thumbs down on their ThunderDome screens as Jey taunts Kevin, “Where you going?” Referees and officials hurry out but the mauling continues! Roman and Jey glare at them, then Roman RAMS Kevin into barriers!

Heyman comes over, gives Roman his belt, and Jey says that was just round one. Roman leads the way up the ramp but Kevin flounders after. Kevin can barely stand, but will he even be in one piece after TLC’s TLC match?

 

The Bloodline talks backstage.

Jey says “If he don’t know, he know now!” Kevin’s getting the message now! Roman says Kevin doesn’t get it yet. “I know his kind. He’s not gonna listen, he’s not gonna stop.” Roman wants Jey to end him so that we never see him again. Jey heads out to do Roman’s bidding, but will it really be so easy?

 

SmackDown Tag Team Championships: The Street Profits VS Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler!

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have lost to the GLORIOUS One and the Show-Off a few times lately, though with controversy. But all the more reason to finally settle this with the titles on the line! Will the “Dirty Dawgs” bring the Profits down and once again be tag team champions?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and this title showdown begins!

Roode and Dawkins start, circle, but Ziggler distracts! Roode sucker punches Dawkins then throws more haymakers. Tag to Ziggler, they double whip but Dawkins kicks Ziggler and ROCKS Roode! Tag to Ford and the Profits double dropkick the Dirty Dawgs! Cover on Ziggler, TWO! Ford keeps his eyes on Ziggler and he KICKS him in the side! Ford stalks Ziggler, kicks but misses, and Ziggler rolls him! TWO, Ford ducks a clothesline to get a back suplex! And a kip up to a standing moonsault! But Ford doesn’t cover, he sees Roode creeping! Ford DECKS Roode, then goes to a corner! Ziggler stops him with a haymaker!

Ziggler drags Ford down, drags him onto the ropes and suplexes, but Ford blocks! Ziggler throws haymakers, but Ford KICKS back! Ziggler is down, Ford goes up but Roode SHOVES Ford off! Ford crashes into barriers and clutches his ribs as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Ziggler rolls Ford to a cover, TWO! Ziggler stomps Ford, brings him up and whips him to a corner hard! Tag to Roode and Ziggler whips Roode for Roode to whip Ziggler for a SPLASH! Then a feed to the KNEE! Russian Leg Sweep! Cover, TWO! Roode keeps Ford down with haymakers and stomps! The ref counts as Ford gets to ropes but Roode digs a knee in! The ref counts again, Roode stops at 3, and Ziggler taunts Ford. Roode brings Ford up, CHOPS him in the corner, then bumps him off buckles! Tag to Ziggler, they stomp Ford, then Ziggler taunts Ford to do something. Ford swings wild but misses, and Ziggler dropkicks him in the stomach! Cover, TWO!!

Ziggler wraps Ford in a rear bearhug, and clearly the Dirty Dawgs remember Survivor Series’ match of Profits and New Day. Roll to a cover, TWO, but Ziggler keeps on Ford with the gut wrench bearhug. Ford drags himself towards the Profits’ corner, fans rally on their screens, but Ziggler rakes eyes! Ziggler puts Ford in the corner, tag to Roode! They mug Ford, Roode brings Ford around to suplex and GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Roode grows frustrated, tags Ziggler, and Ziggler taunts Ford, “Reach for your side!” Ziggler says no one is laughing now as he puts on another bearhug! Another roll to a cover, TWO!

Ziggler keeps Ford close with the bearhug but Ford pries free, only for Ziggler to MULE KICK him in the ribs! Tag to Roode and they whip to whip, but Ford puts Ziggler on the outside! Ziggler falls, Ford dodges Roode! Ford crawls but Roode anchors a foot! Ford kicks Roode away and then hot tags Dawkins! Dawkins rallies on Roode, dodges and LEAING ELBOWS! ZIggler runs into a FLAPJACK! Dawkins scoops Roode for an EXPLODER! The Curse of Greatness is on a roll as he CYCLONE SPLASHES Roode! Then one for Ziggler! Dawkins keeps moving, Roode dodges but Dawkins gets him with the BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!!

Dawkins stalks Roode and he gets him in the ANOINT- NO! Roode blocks but no Glorious DDT! Dawkins rams Roode into buckles but Roode BOOTS back! Ziggler tags in, GLORIOUS FAMOUSER!! Cover, TWO?!? Dawkins survives and the Dirty Dawgs don’t believe it! Ziggler aims from a corner but Dawkins blocks the kick! Ziggler elbows, runs, but into the ANOINTMENT! Tag to Ford and he climbs up top! FROM THE HEAVENS!! But the ribs!! Ford drags himself back to a cover, Roode elbows the back to break it! Ziggler floats over Ford to tag Roode, and Roode O’Conner rolls, TWO, to a roll-up! WITH TIGHTS! The Profits win!!

Winners: The Street Profits, by pinfall (still SmackDown Tag Team Championships)

The gold stays with the Profits! Turnabout’s fair play from when the Dirty Dawgs did them dirty! Ziggler and Roode protest and explain what happened, but the ref says he did his job! Otherwise, these two are suspended! Roode and Ziggler cool off, but will they get revenge?

 

Once again, Pearce walks and talks with Kevin.

Pearce and a referee try to reason with Kevin. He just has to wait 48 hours and he’ll have Roman in the TLC match! But then Jey SMACKS Kevin from behind with a chair! And then again! Jey tells KO to stay down, or else he’ll have to get ‘im! Jey leaves the chair behind as he storms off, but still Kevin drags himself up to his feet! Pearce again tries to reason with Kevin, but will Kevin stubbornly refuse?

 

Kayla Braxton interviews Bianca Belair!

The EST faces her biggest challenge in facing Bayley, but Bayley says Bianca is overrated. What will a win tonight against the Role Model mean to Bianca? Is Kayla really going to say “Bayley” and “Role Model” in the same conversation? Uh-uh. A role model is someone you aspire to be. Bayley is someone you intend to beat. But Bianca has wanted to face Bayley since coming to SmackDown because Bayley is a measuring stick. But the thing is, Bayley always has something to say! Bianca will do what she does best, and the EST will S-H-I-N-E!

 

The Riott Squad VS Billie Kay & ???

Ruby and Liv already beat the Femme Fatale and her previous mystery partner, Natalya. But Billie isn’t leaving it at that! She wants a second try, but who has she recruited to her cause this time? Billie tells Greg Hamilton that she can introduce her tag team partner herself. A second generation superstar, there’s nobody meana than TAMINA! Will the Daughter of Superfly help Billie soar above the Squad?

The teams sort out and Tamina starts with Liv. They go around, Tamina puts Liv in a corner then TOSSES her across the ring! Liv flounders to a corner, Tamina stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Tamina stops at 4, then runs back in. Liv dodges and tags in Ruby! The Squad hit Tamina with a back body block kick combo! Cover, TWO! Ruby wrenches Tamina but Tamina whips her away to then CLOBBER her! Billie is happy to see that as Tamina covers, TWO! Billie doesn’t like seeing that! Ruby throws body shots but Tamina headbutts her down! Tamina taunts Liv, and then mockingly asks Ruby, “Are you good?”

Tamina pushes Ruby around, Billie mocks Ruby but Ruby hits Tamina back! Tamina powers Ruby to a corner, blocks a kick and fireman’s carries! Billie tags in before the SAMOAN DROP! Tamina didn’t know about the tag and has to hurry out as Billie covers, but Liv breaks it! Billie is upset, but she drags Ruby up by her hair. Billie scoops but Ruby slips out and shoves her away! Liv tags in, the Squad dodge Billie to double dropkick Tamina! They catch Billie for a MISSILE DROPKICK COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, the Riott Squad wins!

Winners: The Riott Squad, by pinfall

Another win for the best friends, and another loss for Billie! Will Billie ever find a combination that can be just as iconic as the original?

 

Carmella heads to the ring!

Though she won the SmackDown Women’s Championship match last week, she did not win the title itself because Sasha Banks got disqualified. There will be a rematch at TLC as that was the plan all along. Mella says “Tis the season to drink bubbly, falala lala, lala la la.” Her assistant has set up a table and brought champagne so that she may have a toast for her impending victory at TLC! There are those of us sitting at home saying it is too early to celebrate, but that’s why we’re all home sitting on gross futons while she drinks champagne where the price tag has more digits than a phone number.

Was that burn a little too far? Mella doesn’t care, because she’s better than us! And she knows better than us. And she knows Sasha Banks doesn’t have what it takes to be a champion. Physically, sure. Sasha is quick, agile, ferocious. But mentally, where it counts, she is weak. Mella isn’t throwing shade, those are facts! And the fact is, this is the longest Sasha’s ever held a title! She’s in uncharted water! Sasha is so over her head she is drowning. And not in the champagne Mella smashed on her back! Sasha is drowning in the pressures of her own expectations and is lashing out! She felt that title slipping away so she intentionally got disqualified! And that right there is the very reason why Mella knows she already has Sasha beat! And that is why Mella is celebrating tonight!

Sasha’s entire existence is based on being the very best! The Boss, the standard, the blueprint! This is why Sasha HAS to prove she’s better! But she’ll still be so angry, lose control and want to rip Mella apart. Sasha has to fight her instincts while fighting Mella! “And that is a fight no one, not even Sasha Banks, can win.” So on Sunday, when Mella beats Sasha, Sasha will fall into this deep, dark turmoil, she might break. Because who is Sasha if she isn’t The Boss? Who is Sasha if she isn’t the best? And sadly, that’s a question not even Sasha can answer. That is why Sasha comes so unglued around Mella! That is why Sasha is so desperate!

It’s sad, really. Mella needs that pick-me-up, and nothing lifts her spirits better than a fine glass of champagne. She snaps her fingers and is served- Ugh, what is that This is cheap and frantic. Kind of like Sasha! But speaking of, here Sasha comes! The assistant hurries to the ramp to intercept, but Sasha’s coming from the other side of the ring! Sasha has herself a sip, says it’s better than Mella said, and then SPALSHES Mella with the rest! Sasha tackles Mella, hammers away, then puts on a BANK STATEMENT! The assistant returns but Sasha SLAPS him down! But Mella SMASHES another bottle on Sasha’s back!! The Untouchable Princess of Staten Island again gets the better of The Boss, but will Sasha lose everything when she loses the title?

 

Kevin Owens gets checked by the trainer.

Kevin doesn’t want to be checked, but it’s protocol. And Jey attacks again!! Jey throws hands then RAMS Kevin into a wall! And then SLAMS him through a table! Roman’s orders said to take Kevin out, has Jey finally done just that?

 

Otis Dozovic w/ Chad Gable VS Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Cesaro!

The Alpha Academy’s first, best (and only) student has much to learn according to Coach Gable, but even losing is a lesson. Will the Blue Collar Brawler use what he has learned to overcome the King of Strong Style?

The bell rings and Otis rushes in but Nakamura waistlocks. Otis powers out and wrenches to a wristlock but Nakamura throws forearms. Nakamura cartwheels, wrenches back to a wristlock, but Gable coaches Otis. Otis scoops and SLAMS Nakamura, then runs for a falling headbutt! Cover, TWO! Nakamura gets to the apron, Otis drags him up but Nakamura kicks him down! Nakamura drags Otis to the apron and runs for a KNEE! Cesaro applauds and Nakamura goes in to throw knees into shoulders and ribs! Nakamura scuffs Otis then KICKS him in the chest! But Otis just powers up!

Nakamura kicks more but Otis dares him to keep hitting! Otis then runs Nakamura over and FLAPJACKS him down! Gable cheers Otis on as Otis hits a RUNNING DISCUS! Otis fires up, runs at Nakamura in the corner for a splash! Nakamura is in the drop zone and Otis pumps it up! Gable gets on the apron and says NO Caterpillar! Use a suplex! Cesaro tells Gable to get down, Otis drags Nakamura up but Nakamura cradles! TWO!! Otis blocks the kick to EXPLODER! Now that’s a suplex! Otis goes up the corner for the VADER BOMB! Cover, Otis wins!!

Winner: Otis Dozovic, by pinfall

Gable’s tip actually worked out, sorta! But it could’ve easily gone the wrong way, does Gable really know what he’s doing?

 

Sami Zayn prepares backstage.

It’s almost time for the first-ever Sami Awards. He checks with a production assistant that they have everything, from the trophies to the envelopes to the sound cues. Wait, are the trophies polished? No… IDIOT! If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself! Sami hurries to get polish, and Big E comes by to do a final check of his own. Is Big E gonna make sure the first-ever Samis go smoothly?

 

Otis and Gable are fired up backstage!

Gable knew Otis would do it! But he asks why Otis didn’t go through with the Caterpillar when Nakamura was set up? But Otis thought it was another test. It was! Gable quotes a great philosopher as he says, “Don’t do what I say, do what I mean. You know what I mean?” Not really. Otis will. But for now, rehydrate. Training resumes tomorrow, alpha style! Otis likes the sound of that.

 

SmackDown presents the First Annual Sami Awards!

Sami sets up at his podium with his Intercontinental Championship and a Sami! On further inspection, isn’t that just a Sami Zayn action figure painted gold, and then glued to a tin can painted black? But Sami, hair styled and suit pressed, says the 2020 WWE Slammy Awards are coming on 12/23/2020, on both the WWE Network and all available social networking platforms, but lately the Slammys have taken a dive. Not since Jack Tunney have they mattered. But now the Slammys are just for highlighting corporately selected moments, and that is not what the SAMIS are going to be about. These will be about the will of the people.

Now before getting to the first Sami Award, Sami himself says 2020 has been a “wild” year for all of us, especially the WWE. Let us take a quick look back at WWE’s 2020, “Year in Review!” Narration by Corey Graves says “In a year of turbulence, one man- Nay, one LIBERATOR, thrived.” This is all about Sami!! Sami calling AJ styles a fraud, calling Jeff Hardy a fraud, and then finding a way to cheat them out of the Intercontinental Championship. And then doing the same to Apollo Crews, Big E, and somehow representing the best in humanity. “Oh my goodness, what a year it’s been!”

Now, to the first Sami Award: Comeback of the Year. What stiff competition! Edge, Roman Reigns, and maybe even Sami himself. But the winner is… Drumroll and… “The Sami goes to… SAMI ZAYN~!” What a “surprise” that Sami won the award named for himself. It feels great to be recognized, though, doesn’t it? Thank you, fans, for this honor! But on to the second Sami Award: Match of the Year! The one everyone wants to win in this category! Every week, another contender pops up. And the Sami goes to… SAMI ZAYN, for the Triple Threat Ladder Match at Clash of Champions! OH MY~! Sami will not lie, he wanted that one more than anything.

But on to the third and final, perhaps the truly biggest one. It’s Superstar of the Year! The greatness of what the Samis are all about. And the Sami goes to… BIG E?!? Big E moves Sami aside and shouts, “MAMA, I MADE IT~!” First of all, Big E has to thank his therapist, Marvin Sims. He also needs to thank Notre Dame in advance for covering the spread this weekend. Pull through for E, guys. Sami protests, there was a mix up with the cards! So Big E BODY SHOTS Sami! Big E bumps Sami off the tables! And then throws him down the ramp! Sami reaches all the way to the bottom! Big E says thank you, and takes his Sami, to SPIKE it! Will the real Sami earn actual praise when he gives Big E another match?

 

Kayla Braxton interviews Bayley.

The Role Model responds to Bianca saying she is just a measuring stick. It was refreshing to hear someone say something nice about her. But Bayley isn’t going to take it easy on Bianca. Bianca is the strongest, fastest and all that, but compared to what? Just because she ran track in college? Bayley did that, too, in Cross Country. And she was the CAPTAIN of her high school basketball team. You don’t see Bayley bragging about the old days. Bianca has all the potential in the world, but if Bayley were her, she’d be more humble. Instead of picking a fight, she’d just be picking Bayley’s brain. But Bayley will put Bianca, on *clap* the *clap* mat. Can Bayley do that with her match with Bianca up next, after the break?

Bayley VS Bianca Belair!

SmackDown returns and Bayley makes her entrance. The bell rings and Bayley ties up with Bianca, but Bianca scoops her. Bayley slips out, but Bianca is too strong for the roll up! Bianca handsprings back and eggs Bayley on. Bayley stomps a foot! Bayley talks smack but Bianca stomps the foot back! Bayley shoves, wrenches and laces Bianca through ropes! The ref counts, Bayley lets off at 3, and Bianca smirks. Things speed up and Bianca runs Bayley over! Bianca handsprings over Bayley again, eggs her on, then hurdles! Bayley ends up on the apron, and she baits Bianca in to hotshot her! Bayley says to kiss this, but Bianca sweeps the legs! Cover, TWO!

Bianca looms over Bayley, dares her to get up, then brings her up to whip to a corner. Bayley reverses, Bianca goes up and over and handsprings all the way to the other end, tot ell Bayley to kiss this. Bianca then leaps over Bayley to dropkick her down! Bianca kips up, fans cheer on their screens, and Bianca handsprings, but Bayley trips her up! Bayley SLAMS an arm on the apron! Bianca flops out while clutching her arm, and Bayley drags her up to hammerlock and RAM her into barriers! The ring count is climbing while Bayley leaves Bianca behind, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Bayley clubs Bianca to then throw her back out. Bayley goes out to talk some smack again, “I’m the ER! I’m better!” Bianca rams Bayley into steps! The ring count is up at 8 but Bayley gets in at 9! Bianca and Bayley run at each other but they both DECK the other! Bayley flounders up with the ropes but Bianca is after her. Bianca counter punches, fires off forearms and has Bayley in a corner! Bianca rams her shoulder in, the ref counts and Bianca lets off to bring Bayley up! Bianca holds Bayley and does squats before the SLAM! Bianca kips up, says kiss this again, then drags Bayley up to yank on the arm! And again! And again!

Bianca wrenches, wrings Bayley out, then handspring splashes! Cover, TWO! Bayley gets to the apron, slides under Bianca and runs, but into a scoop and BACKBREAKER! Bianca holds on, carries Bayley around, and GUT BUSTERS! Cover, TWO! Bianca goes to a corner and climbs up, but Bayley throws a forearm! Bayley drags Bianca out on ropes, does some squats, but Bianca gets down to snap suplex Bayley away! Bianca runs in but into a flapjack onto buckles! Bayley hobbles, runs back in, but Bianca flapjacks Bayley! Bianca picks Bayley up for a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Bayley survives and Bianca grows frustrated.

Bianca pounds the mat but manages to shrug it off, only to walk into a boot! Bayley trips Bianca, high stack, but the ref sees her put her feet on ropes! Bianca pops Bayley to a cover, TWO!! Bayley kicks low, reels Bianca in, but Bianca blocks! So Bayley rolls Bianca, but Bianca rolls Bayley! TWO, to a high stack, TWO! Bianca DEAD LIFTS Bayley, but Bayley rakes eyes! ROSE PLANT!! Cover, Bayley wins!!

Winner: Bayley, by pinfall

There is one thing Bayley is more than Bianca: Bayley is the sliest wrestler on SmackDown! But will Bianca learn to be more wary of the Role Model next time?

 

Roman Reigns returns to the ring!

The Tribal Chief, the Special Counsel, and #MainEventJey are all together, and Roman is going to deliver one final message before TLC! We’ll see and hear what that is, after the break!

SmackDown returns once more, and once more, Heyman fetches a mic for Roman. “For the life of me, I’ve been trying to understand this.” Roman is trying to understand why, if you have the opportunity to be in the ring with Roman, “to be on the Island of Relevancy” in the main event of a PPV and in a championship match, “why would you blow it?” This is the moment your kids’ kids’ kids’ kids’ kids’ kids’ kids will talk about! A moment that elevates your career to the next level, and to get a payday th- Kevin is back!? Somehow, Kevin is walking his way to the ring! And Jey intercepts! But Kevin grabs a chair to JAM and SMACK Jey down!

Roman rushes Kevin but Kevin throws hands! Roman shoves Kevin, Kevin kicks but Jey SUPERKICKS Kevin before a stunner! Roman runs and SPEARS Kevin down! Jey fetches things for Roman as Roman gives CHAIR SHOTS to Kevin over and over! Jey has put in several more chairs, and a couple tables, as Roman digs the chair into Kevin’s head! Jey sets the tables up for Roman while Roman tells Kevin he should’ve just stayed away. ANOTHER chair shot to the back! And another! The tables are set, Roman drags Kevin up and around, to feed to Jey to SPINEBUSTER through a table! Just like backstage! But there’s one table left, and Roman wants to use that one now.

Jey positions things for Roman, then drags Kevin for him. Roman tells Kevin to just take the payday. It’s not worth all this. Kevin still tries to get up but Roman says Kevin has pissed him off! Fireman’s carry, SAMOAN DROP through the table!! But that’s not enough! Jey fetches a THIRD table while Roman uses the wreckage of the others to beat Kevin’s body! Wait, Jey also puts in a FOURTH table, and even fetches a ladder! Roman buries Kevin with the wreckage while Jey fetches a second ladder. Roman uses the new tables to bury Kevin, and then SLAMS a ladder onto him! Jey puts chairs onto the pile and Roman SLAMS the second ladder onto Kevin!

Jey adds more chairs, and Roman SMACKS the pile with a chair! Jey joins in, it’s not even clear if they’re hitting Kevin anymore! For all intents and purposes, Roman and Jey leave Kevin dead and buried under the tables, ladders and chairs in the ring. Will the same thing happen again at TLC? Will Kevin even be at TLC?

Kayla asks Roman on his way out for a word. Roman says she gets one question. Wait, Kevin dug himself out?! And is sitting himself up in a chair, with the mic Roman left behind! “ROMAN! Roman…! Nothing you or your family do to me can keep me down. At TLC, I’m going to take the Universal title, or I’m gonna die trying.” Kevin gave his own ultimatum, but will he be able to #StunTheWorld against the Tribal Chief?


My Thoughts:

What a rather wild go-home from SmackDown! Pretty scant on the matches, but the matches we got did matter towards story. The SmackDown Tag Team Championship match was very good, and I like that they referenced Survivor Series and how New Day worked on Ford’s midsection. I almost thought that was going to be the reason why “The Dirty Dawgs” were going to win, but Profits giving them a taste of karma was good. I don’t know if they need to schedule a rematch at the last minute for TLC, I think this would be better served as a build towards the Royal Rumble.

Speaking of rematches at TLC, obviously we were getting that for the women’s title but Mella made sure to plug it during her segment. Mella had an okay promo, but I feel like they were trying to play off crowd reaction when it’s just ThunderDome screens and piped in noise, not a good move. Mella stands tall against Sasha tonight so clearly that means Sasha wins at TLC. I was hoping Natty was going to be around ringside for Bayley VS Bianca since she was partially involved in the story. Maybe Natty can circle back around, since Bayley had to cheat to win, but it was still a very good main event for Bayley and Bianca.

Riott Squad VS Billie & Tamina was good, and fits exactly what I thought was going to happen last time. I can’t see this going much longer unless someone new is brought up, or Chelsea Green’s hand is 100% healed. I think Gable is trying to gaslight Otis just to ruin things for him more. But it works that Otis still won despite Gable trying to make him change his style. I’m thinking Gable tries to make training even harder on Otis as a passive aggressive way of punishing him. The Sami Awards were actually pretty good, and of course Sami was going to use them to praise himself. But Big E pulling some hijinks was great, and this clearly means we’re getting Sami VS Big E for the Intercontinental title.

And once again, the Roman Reigns story is the best part of SmackDown, and better than most of Raw. While the show opened with recap, and then a promo segment with Kevin and Heyman that wasn’t even 10 minutes, everything that followed was worth it. Kevin getting tricked, getting jumped, getting the crap kicked out of him, and then literally getting buried, none of it stopped him! Now, I don’t think Kevin is winning the title in the TLC match at TLC, but he is going to give Roman the best fight since Roman returned, and that in itself is a prize.

My Score: 8.5/10

Review:

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley

Both men try to get a strength advantage with a Collar & Elbow tie up before breaking it and going to holds now and still getting even ground. Now both men get some fighting in the corner going, delivering punches and strikes until they go to the outside where Lashley takes control and ragdolls McIntyre into the barricades before tossing Drew back in. Lashley keeps the onslaught on Drew and gets a quick pin attempt for a one and continues to get the beat down on the former champ. Lashley gets a lot of steam going as he goes to do another shoulder tackle into the corner, only to miss and Drew targets the arm of Bobby. Momentum shifting into Drew’s favor as Drew getting things going for him, suplexes and strikes galore as he goes for the Future Shock DDT. Lashley puts Drew into the corner to get separation but Drew catches the strike attempt and catches lashley into Northern Lights Suplex for a nearfall.

Bobby gets a reversal into a slam, a near fall and both men get some signature moves in. Drew hits the Glasgow Kiss and Bobby hits back with a one handed Spinebuster. After another near fall, Drew gets caught in a Hurt Lock but gets out of it quickly as they both go to the corner. Drew getting the swing this time and lands a good ol’ Alabama Slamma for a near fall of his own before trying to set up a sky-high superplex to the champion. Lashley fights off the attempt as Drew gets a Kimora Lock in to weaken the arm, Lashley fights him off again, catching Drew into a Tree of Woe but Drew sits up to launch Bobby in a Belly- To Belly. Lashley hits another one armed Spinebuster until Drew kips up and tells him to bring it, delivering a trifecta of Future Shock DDTs for a two count.

Drew in shock but goes to the corner, doing the countdown to the Claymore but Lashley rolls out of the ring. Drew tapping into a little bit of Undertaker and does a Tope Con Hilo to take MVP and Bobby out and takes Lashley back to the ring, setting up for something in from the top. Lashley catches the challenger and goes to apply another Hurt Lock but Drew runs out of the way to stun Lashley. As Lashley goes to do another Spinebuster, Drew rolls it into a Kimura Lock, perfectly on before Lashley inches slowly to the ropes to kick out. Lashley now, getting his aggression out, taking it to McIntyre in the corner until Drew gets separation, going for another Claymore until MVP distracts the former champion and misses the Claymore for Lashley to get the Hurt Lock in. Drew looked impressive to break out but Lashley didn’t break when Drew pushed off the corner and passes out from the pressure.

Tag Team Turmoil

Naomi & Lana vs Carmella & Billie Kay to start off the gauntlet style matchup as Naomi and Lana take the early advantage against Carmella. Carmella gets a tag onto Billie Kay but the advantage is still Lana and Naomi. When all four get in for chaos, Billie Kay goes for a roll up and beat Naomi and Lana for the next team to come out…

Riott Squad come out and take it to Billie early on but Carmella gets a tag and starts a beat down against Liv Morgan. Ruby breaks up the pin attempt but as Billie goes for the same pin attempt, the ref catches it and the Riott Squad get a tag and the advantage as Billie Kay gets brutalized, pinned and Carmella starts to beat up Liv before the next team come in…

Dana and Mandy come out and Ruby fights the two alone from the beat down as the fresher team gets things going and Liv barely gets a break of a pin attempt as Mandy and Dana work Ruby’s neck now. As Mandy cuts the ring off from Ruby, Ruby starts to fight out of the corner and gets Liv into the match now as they start the beat down of Mandy Rose. As the Riott Squad lose the advantage, Rose and Brooke get some damage with a superplex and Swanton combination but Liv gets a reversal on Dana and get the pinfall.

Natalya and Tamina are the last two to get in the match up and start the powerhouse assault on the Riott Squad. The two getting the best of the most tenured tag team in the whole match up as Liv tries to break out of their grasp. Ruby gets the tag and hit the codebreaker/senton combination to Tamina only for a two though and Tamina gets the advantage back, gets the tag to Natalya and they hit a Hart Attack. Natalya looks to get the Sharpshooter but changes her mind and tags Tamina in for the Superfly Splash to get the Day Two Tag Team Championship opportunity.

Seth Rollins vs Cesaro-

Cesaro goes quick into the offense with an Uppercut and goes for the Swing early but Seth rushes out and panics with Cesaro getting more and more of a beat down. Cesaro getting a good amount of offense going as Seth starts to target Cesaro’s arm and starts to pick things up after with his Superplex/Falcon Arrow combo after getting distance. Seth getting cocky again as he tries to take it to Cesaro but the Swiss Cyborg gets his strikes in again, taking down Seth with Uppercuts and goes for the swing again constantly, first time gets countered into a cradle, second time Seth gets to the ropes but the third time is the charm for nine rotations of the Swing and Sharpshooter. Seth breaks out of the hold and moves out of another Uppercut attempt from the corner, hurting Cesaro’s arm again as Rollins gets his high offense in, knees, Slingblades and a 360 Splash but nothing keeps Cesaro down. Seth tries for a ripcord knee but Cesaro changes it into a Neutralizer and a two count. Rollins crawls to the ropes and gets his legs grabbed again for yet ANOTHER Swing but flips out of it, into a Pedigree but fails to get the victory again.

Rollins gets his speech in about being God as he hits Cesaro in time to set up the Curb Stomp. Rollins gets caught into a Uppercut (second best Stomp counter) and takes Rollins spinning, first with a no handed Airplane Spin, Giant Swing and finishes it with a Neutralizer.

(Now get my Red and Pewter out of my sight on Rollins. They are winners unlike you tonight, Seth.)

New Day vs AJ Styles and Omos-

We… are getting Omos to start off against Kofi…? Oh no. New Day goaded AJ to start.

Kofi and AJ using their speed to go off and do some of their big moves or attempt them as AJ thinks he gets an advantage but Kofi gets it, with a slam and near fall, teasing AJ after a beat down as the champs get frequent tags, even getting a Unicorn Stampede off before Xavier holds AJ down for a bit. They keep teasing Omos to tag in but to no avail, New Day beating AJ down more. Kofi goes to tease AJ to get to tag AJ but tags Woods in to cut him off from tagging Omos. After a flurry from AJ to separate from Woods, Kofi tags himself in and fights AJ from tagging the big man in until AJ separates himself from the two and realizes, “I can tag the big man…? I CAN TAG THE BIG MAN!”

Omos comes in and Xavier can’t knock Omos down as Kofi tries to tag in and chop down the big man as The New Day… well to quote the remake of The Longest Yard… they shit themselves. Omos dismantles and smashes The New Day in the ring. Omos basically is breaking them apart as AJ flings over Omos for a Phenomenal Forearm and Omos two handed Chokeslams Kofi down for the win… Jesus Christ. They made him look like a billion dollars in the ring tonight.

Braun Strowman vs Shane McMahon-

As Braun comes in second, Elias and Ryker goes and beats Strowman down with chairs before the bell and Shane tells them to bring Braun in for it to start.

Shane grabs one of the chairs and beats Braun down with the chair over and over, going for a quick win and escaping but Braun, limping, stops Shane and taking more strikes from Shane for a good amount, limping and weakened as Shane breaks sheet metal from the top of the cage to continue the beat down and near fall. Braun now taking the fight to Shane as he stops Shane from escaping and tossing Shane into the cage walls over and over as Shane gets Braun’s hands now before getting squashed between the cage walls. Braun gets the full advantage in the match until his legs give out from earlier and Shane slides out, doing a swinging DDT and setting Braun up to go from Florida all the way to Cali with the Coast to Coast for a second near fall. Ryker and Elias climb the outside to get Shane out but Strowman runs into the cage to loosen all three of them. More offense goes on before Shane gets away and climbs out almost until he pisses off Braun and… gets caught, pulling the cage apart and dragging Shane back in. Braun getting a bright idea as he props Shane up on the cage, going up himself before Braun launches Shane off the cage and climbs back in, stumbling and standing up for himself and everyone who was bullied that’s watching before hitting a Running Powerslam for the win.

We get a small break for the cage to be taken down to honor the inductees to the 2020 Hall of Fame, Shatner, Liger, JBL, The Bella Twins, The British Bulldog, Titus O’Neal with the Warrior Award and the New World Order, Waltman, Hall, Nash and Hogan.

Bad Bunny & Damien Priest vs Miz & John Morrison-

Priest and Miz start it off and Miz goes to the corner and goads Bunny to come in and tags in as they walk around a little bit and Miz being an ass saying he can get the first shot as Bad Bunny pops Miz down. Bunny actually goes for a waist lock as Miz swings wild, Bunny ducks and gets another jab in before Miz gets pissed off and both of them trade blows in the corner of the ring before Miz gets the advantage, taking Bad Bunny into one corner and gets cocky a little before getting countered and Bunny flings Miz down with an arm drag. Miz rolls out and gets caught INTO A LA MAGISTAL AND A NEAR FALL! Miz had to get cheap after a a short pep talk with Morrison as Bad Bunny showing he’s better than Enzo with the rope spot. Bunny gets the advantage again as he slides under the ropes and does a well done Tilt-A-Whirl Head Scissor on Miz before tagging Morrison and getting some control in the match for M&M.

Miz gets back in and taunts Damien Priest by putting Bad Bunny in a headlock, inches away from Priest until Bunny gets some fight in him, dropping Morrison from the apron and almost getting to Priest, countering Miz’s stop with a Sunset Flip but getting beaten down after the pin attempt. Miz and Morrison take it to Bunny on the outside a bit. Morrison gets tagged in and taunts Booker T with a Spinarooni (A perfect one at that) as the tag to Miz gets in and Priest tries to get the crowd amped up. Miz cheap shots Priest and takes the ref’s attention away as M&M just keep embarrassing Bad Bunny with kicks in the corner. Miz gets cocky again and goes for his signature clothesline in the corner but Bunny stops him, dropping Morrison’s attack from the apron and hits a Tornado DDT onto Miz as he finally tags Damien Priest.

Damien goes to both men with his speed and strength, suplexing Miz into Morrison and hitting a chokeslam into a nearfall as all four men now get in the ring. Stereo Falcon Arrows, Damien Priest getting his step up Tope Con Hilo and Bunny with a crossbody. Priest gets Miz into the ring and Miz counters it into a Skull Crushing Finale into a pinfall. Bad Bunny goes to break it up and almost gets a tag in before Morrison pulls Bunny down. Bad Bunny having none of it from Morrison, hits a God Damn Destroyer as Priest props Miz up, gets the tag and lands a crossbody on the Miz for the win.

(Okay… Bad Bunny actually impressed me. Showed he cared. I give him props for that. I really do.)

Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks-

Both women size each other up for Collar & Elbows and Sasha shoves Bianca down, getting the trash talk started before Bianca kips up and shows a good amount of her –est’s, being Strong, Quick, Fast against Sasha as Sasha gets annoyed and gets caught by Bianca, rolling her out of the ring as Bianca goes to the outside. After some fighting on the apron, Sasha goes for a good suicide dive attempt but Bianca catches her and carries her to the ring as the match gets back to the ring. Bianca gets her usually offense going but Sasha actually grabs the hair of Bianca during the cartwheel and takes control this time around, getting her edge back and weakening the challenger. Sasha takes her to the corner and goes for the double knee attempt from the apron before Bianca catches her and drops her on her shoulder as they both go to the outside. Bianca’s hair gets caught by Sasha and Bianca takes control on the outside before the ref gets to 8 and both come back in. Bianca showed off her strength this time after a cradle attempt and does an impressive amount of time on a stalling suplex. Sasha keeps using Bianca’s hair to try to stop her after the Suplex but Bianca uses her hair as a ripcord effect into a clothesline. Sasha gets beat down from a Standing Shooting Star and getting propped into the corner as Belair goes for a 450 attempt from the top rope and Sasha counters, getting the momentum change momentarily.

Bianca catches some of Sasha’s high speed offense and does powerbomb pinfalls as Sasha kicks out of the first two, reversing the third with an X-Factor and taking control back with a Tornado DDt for another near fall. Banks now goes to the top for a Frog Splash. Sasha gets her anger and ruthlessness to wrap Bianca’s hair around her opponent into a Bank Statement and somehow, Bianca powers through and gets to the ropes before Sasha starts stopping on Bianca’s face after the break. Banks keeps going with the trash talking but Bianca shoves her into the corner post with some Shoulder Tackles and sets her up for a Superplex. Sasha fights her off and attempts a cartwheel kick before Sasha grabs the feet into a Tree of Woe position to land a Meteora. Sasha misses the first one, goes to a knee strike from the Tree as Bianca sits up so Sasha lands knees first into the turnbuckle and eats a 450 Splash for a near fall. Sasha tries to get control again after but gets whipped in the midsection with Bianca’s hair and after a fight to swing around, Bianca grabs Sasha up and lands the Kiss Of Death to win her first Women’s Championship in WWE.

Overall Score: 8/10

Well not too bad for the first fan attended event for WWE… barring NXT of course. Bad Bunny showed he can actually care about wrestling, wasn’t expecting a Canadian Destroyer… or I guess Puerto Rican Destroyer. Cesaro gets his moment, Bianca gets her moment. AJ Styles is now a Grand Slam Champion and every match except for the Tag Team Turmoil thing was pretty solid. I actually can’t wait for night two of Mania. Did it match Stand and Deliver Night One? No. That is still the best match of the week so far but they brought a good amount of fire this night and held a candle to Night Two all things considered. Well we have one more day for me to do Mania Week writing so let’s see if Night two can live up to Night One.

Just… people stop wearing my Bucs colors and lose in the process. Seriously. Disappointed me tonight Seth and New Day.

WWE 24/7 Championship Results & Report! (4/10/21)

BEHOLD! The Night Panther!!

Published

on

NEW 24/7 Championship

It’s the epic conclusion to the Legend of the Night Planter!

Mild-mannered Old Spice salesman, Joseph Average, finds himself in the middle of an incredible WWE 24/7 Championship prophecy! But is he hero or villain?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • WWE 24/7 Championship Picnic Panic: R-Truth VS Akira Tozawa & Night Panther; Truth retains the title.

PLAY BY PLAY

R-Truth is having a picnic.

“This is just not your ordinary picnic. We eatin’ good.” And after spraying some Old Spice Night Panther, they’re smellin’ good, too! But Akira Tozawa is sneaking up to snatch Truth’s snacks! Truth goes to reach for some, sees Tozawa, and Tozawa says, “Say cheese~!” What’s Tozawa doing at Truth’s picnic?! And with Ninja Referee (Drew Gulak) and the Night Panther! Truth finds he’s outnumbered! Tozawa and Ninja Ref Gulak grab Truth, and Truth says, “Oh no! Say it ain’t so, Joe!” He went from Average Joe, to Average Ninja! But if you go full ninja, you go evil. But, Joe’s not evil…

Tozawa shouts, “ATTACK!” But stand back, there’s a Hurricane comin’ through! A hurricane? Truth’s insurance covers that. But what is he doing here? What’s he doing here? Everyone knows that hurricanes and night panthers are mortal enemies. Truth confirms. And yet, here Joe is, ruining Truth’s picnic with his baby. Wazzupwiththat?! Night Panther, attack!! Night Panther punches at Hurricane but is blocked and counter punched! Truth breaks free of the kung-fu grip, and hurries with Hurricane to the Truth Cave! AWAY~!

The ninjas pick themselves up and Tozawa blames Night Panther for this. But he tried…! Tozawa takes away Night Panther’s seemingly endless blackbelt. Was this Yokozuna sized? But Tozawa doesn’t care what the prophecy says, Joseph Average is NOT the Night Panther! The “HAH! HAH! HAH!” turns into laughter at Joe’s failure, and Joe runs away in shame. Ninja Ref Gulak tries to talk with Tozawa but he won’t hear it. Will Tozawa ever get the 24/7 Championship away from Truth? Will Joseph Average redeem himself? Or is there truly someone else who the Night Panther mantle is meant for?


My Thoughts:

Not quite as conclusive as I thought, but this was a pretty great next part to this story with Eric Bugenhagen, aka Ricky Buge, aka The Buge, now Joseph “The Night Panther” Average, who may not even be the Night Panther anymore. I like that we got The Hurricane in this, and if it weren’t for the divide of WWE and AEW, I would love if the cinematic wrestling universe got Matt Hardy involved with this title. Having a brand deal feels right up the “Big Money Matt” gimmick’s alley. I hope Buge returns and proves himself as the Night Panther, or even just as Joseph Average. This is the kind of fun this title needs to be having either way.
