Goldberg vs Drew McIntyre
McIntyre basically says screw this and headbutts Goldberg and Spears him outside of the ring to get a slight advantage but Goldberg in normal Goldberg fashion, reverses Drew into the steps and Spears him through the barricade. Goldberg goes in to wait for Drew, gives him a jackhammer and Drew kicks out. Goldberg is in disbelief but regains himself in the corner, setting up for the Spear again. Goldberg rushes to the corner, misses Drew and gets hit with a Claymore after the sidestep. 1.2.3.
Drew retains. Has a moment with Goldberg to which Goldberg said “You passed the test.” And hugs him.
Carmella vs Sasha Banks
Ahem… I’m good now that the bell rang um…
Sasha goes for an early victory with a quick Bank Statement but Carmella rolls out to trash talk with Reginald. Sasha takes early control with the arm but after some hell shenanigans, Carmella takes control back and beats down Banks. After Carmella gets cocky with Banks on the top rope, she Meteoras Mella, taking the control back for the time being but, Sasha is injuring her knee in the process. Carmella takes Banks out of the ring but, Reggie catches her and gets kicked out. Carmella goes full Sasha Banks with a Suicide Dive. Mella makes a comeback after the removal of Reginald. Sasha gets some separation after a Code of Silence and tries to dive on Mella but gets catches her with a superkick and goes for a near fall.
Carmella goes to take her time and pick up Sasha after the pin attempt but Sasha grabs Carmella’s arm and gets her in the Bank Statement for the submission victory.
Big E and Xavier Woods are backstage talking about Woods’ defeats to Retribution thrice. Sami Zayn comes to interferes and questions why they are being an injustice to his views but Kofi comes back to burn him like Ashton Kusher and roast Sami Zayn out of the room.

Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns
As always in Owens’ fashion, Hockey fighting starts the match and after some dodging of finishers, each men hit old moves, Roman with a Superman Punch to take Kevin down and Kevin gets up to do a Pop-UP Powerbomb for Roman to get knocked down. They go to the outside and another big move from Roman with a Spear to take Owens to a seven before grabbing the steps and taking it to Owens. After more attacks with the step and knocking Owens down and gets a five count. Owens turns it around and uses the ThunderDome LED Boards and Steel Steps to try to get Roman down. After more fighting in the “crowd”, Roman is down for five until Owens takes out Roman’s legs with a chair before Reigns gets up and gives Kevin a taste of his own medicine. Owens gets up and stuns Roman though and goes to take him off the higher level as Roman reverses and Superman Punches KO to throw him through the tables below as Owens gets up at the count of nine before limping to the backstage area.
As the ref asks if Kevin Owens wants to continue, Reigns comes in with a Golf Cart and lays Owens out. After more fighting, Roman goes to insult Owens by lifting his head up and talking to Kevin Owens’ relatives and incites Owens to take Roman out with a powerbomb and frog splash to go through a table. Roman just barely makes it to nine as he stands up and now limps and is dazed. Kevin Owens uses more weapons in the back to make sure Reigns is down as he notices something from WCW’s playbook. Owens gets on top of a forklift and does a Senton through the table. Reigns somehow beats the count at nine but stumbles back from that.
They come back from the backstage area and Roman gets dragged out and stirs himself up to nine again before Kevin Owens tries another Pop-Up Powerbomb before Reigns catches KO with a Superman Punch for distance and a spear through the LED Board. Kevin Owens gets to nine after that but Owens rolls off the platform and stands up staggering, burning his arm on a spotlight as he regains his composure. Reigns talks more and gets into a fist fight with Owens until Owens stuns Roman and uses the handcuff Roman was going to use to keep Roman down. As the ref counts in front of Roman, Roman grabs the referee and tosses him into a post nearby and stop the count. Reigns beats down Owens as Heyman goes over to unlock him. Reigns goes to put KO into a guillotine choke and Kevin Owens is down for the ten count.
Men’s Royal Rumble:
We start things off the same way we enjoyed last year, Edge and Orton. Rated RKO. Edge wastes no time and attacks Randy from the beginning at the ramp and dragging him to the ring as the bell finally rings.

Nope Randy returns, RKO time! RKO out of nowhere and goes to toss Edge out but Edge reverses it and takes Orton out of the Royal Rumble! January 31st must be Edge’s lucky number on Royal Rumbles for his second Rumble win!
Overall Score: 7.5/10
Well we have Bianca coming in to win it like most of us thought, we have another Hall of Famer and/or Candian winning from #1 on the men’s side with Edge… I know the Women’s Tag Titles switched hands but that was preshow and even WWE themselves don’t really count the preshow majority of the time as the show. I can say I am pleased with the matches. The WWE Title Match was every typical Goldberg match so we aren’t too shocked there and if the referee didn’t stop the count in the Universal Championship match for that critical botch, it would have looked a lot better but… at least the Rumble matches didn’t disappoint! That’s what actually matters! The Road to WrestleMania has begun and we have Edge and Bianca as our first to guarantees in WrestleMania 37 at Raymond James Stadium. Who knows what will happen for the next few weeks on RAW, SmackDown and even NXT with their involvement. Will Damien Priest, Shotzi, Santana along with others get called up? Well that’s why we have shows for the next few weeks so stay tuned to see what goes on for WrestleMania plans to unfold.

It’s the WrestleMania 37 Night Two Kickoff Show!
Join Kayla Braxton, Booker T, Jerry “The King” Lawler, JBL and Peter Rosenberg for yet another round of discussing, analyzing and predicting the action tonight!
Sonya Deville joins the panel again!
Does anyone really understand the implications of the Nigerian Drum Fight? It might just be Apollo Crews who understands. His power and his culture are going to define what happens tonight. Booker asks, “What do I look like? Chopped liver?” Well okay, he would know, yes. Booker says this goes back a long time ago, the Zulu nation and the Mandingo. This will play out in front of the world so the world needs to understand, and Booker says Apollo will make you understand. Sonya wishes she’d heard more about this. But Jerry wants to know why it’s drums. Booker asks, “What do you do to a drum?” You beat it. Exactly!
Rosenberg says the bottom line is, Apollo is in control. Big E may be on the kick of being in his hometown- JBL asks why Rosenberg’s hands are everywhere. But the point is, Apollo knows what this is about because this is his match. Booker says this will be a great night for everyone back home. JBL and Jerry can’t say anything without getting canceled, so they will agree with him.

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.
