PLAY BY PLAY
John Morrison is already in the ring!
“Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you to the NEW WWE Champion, THEEEE MIIIIIZ~!” And here comes the Hollywood A-Lister and once again WWE World Champion, with the upside-down WWE logo to represent himself. And he gets a championship level bit of pyro, too! The Miz joins Morrison as the chairs are set out and the balloons are here for the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, MizTV, “Champion’s Edition!” How do you like Miz now? Sixteen YEARS ago, Miz first stepped inside the WWE ring, and all of the fans and the wrestlers said he’d be fired within three months! But now, eh stands here before us on the flagship, Monday Night Raw, as THE WWE World Champion!!
“All the top superstars of my generation have come and gone, and here I am, still standing!” Miz has taken them all out! The Batistas, the Cenas, the list goes on and on! You name ’em, they just don’t measure up! Triple H, Big Show, Bobby Lashley, Daniel Bryan and even EDGE! All those titans don’t match up to Miz’s longevity and star power! And if this were poker, here’s his Royal Flush! Miz called his shot, like the Babe Ruth of the WWE! And it feels so good! He wasn’t being sneaky, he told everyone that he was going to cash in and beat McIntyre, and that is exactly what he did! Everyone thought they knew what would happen on the Road to WrestleMania, but Miz created a detour!
Miz is main event caliber, his career reads as a Jeopardy clue! “He is the only two-time Grand Slam Champion in the history of this business!” Who is The Miz? CORRECT! Miz has held every single major title there is to have multiple times! Miz holds this title in front of us because he deserves it. He didn’t ask for our respect, he demanded it! But then he’s interrupted by the man who helped him, it’s BOBBY LASHLEY! He and MVP head to the ring, but Miz and Morrison don’t look worried.
Lashley and MVP get mics as they stand face to face with Miz and MVP says on behalf of the Hurt Business, he congratulates Miz on the new reign. And what an impressive list of accomplishments! But uh, he omitted the part where Lashley wrecked and destroyed McIntyre, allowing Miz to cash in the MITB contract to become champion. Miz says he was getting there. Miz wants to thank MVP and Lashley for last night, too. Miz and Morrison are going to celebrate, these two can have a wonderful night. Oh no, Miz, this business meeting is not done. How about we reveal the deal that was struck? Morrison cost Lashley his belt, and now Miz owes Lashley. Lashley helped Miz, Lashley gets a title opportunity. Lashley says Miz owes them a debt, the Hurt Business is here to collect.
Miz acknowledges the deal but there was no agreement on when. Miz has media to do, there’s Fastlane and WrestleMania, his own reality TV series. There’s a lot that Lashley might not understand, but there’s just no time. No time? When Miz listed those “titans” that didn’t measure up, he had time to mention Lashley then. Lashley doesn’t measure up? That was out of context!
Lashley shuts Miz up and says they made a deal. Miz has ONE HOUR to come to his senses and give Lashley what he wants. If Miz makes the wrong decision, he’ll be in a new reality series called “How Lashley Sent Me to the ER!” Lashley is going to take that title in a painful, merciless and awesome beating! Lashley then smooths out Miz’s suit for him, and lets the clock start ticking. Will Miz make sure to do the right thing by the Rocky Mountain Machine tonight?

They congratulate the Bro on winning and he thanks them back. This was cuz they had his back. Riddle finally got his win in the WarZone. He got stuck in the gulag, then busted out. No not the game! They’re talking about the US Championship! True, true. Riddle likes the eagle on this. He’ll name him, “Travis,” in honor of his friend who was a huge metal had. But hey, what’s he doing here if he has a match up next? Riddle has his stallion at the ready! High-ho, Razor scooter, AWAAAY~! But will the Bro be ready for JoMo in the ThunderDo…me?

Morrison forearms back and they brawl! The hits are hard, Morrison mule kicks but Riddle blocks the roundhouse. Riddle throws body shots, Morrison pokes him in the eye! Morrison rolls Riddle to a takedown, then shifts to a dragon sleeper. Riddle moves around but Morrison just uses that to bend him back!
Riddle fights up, Morrison inverted suplexes Riddle to the apron and then ROUNDHOUSES him down! Morrison TORNILLO PLANCHAS! But Morrison clutches his leg, that may have been a bit double-edged! The ref starts a ring count, both men get up and Morrison puts Riddle in the drop zone! Morrison gets in but Riddle gets away, so Morrison stalks him. Morrison runs at ropes but into a HEADSCISSOR! They end up on the apron,. Morrison ROUNDHOUSES Riddle again! Morrison gets up but Riddle CHOPS him! And CHOPS him! And KICKS!

Backstage interview with Damian Priest & Bad Bunny!
It’s been a whirlwind week so what’s next? Bunny says this is just the beginning. With his boy, Priest, by his side, we can get used to Bunny having the 24/7 Championship for a long time. Priest tells Truth he already saw him and Truth pretends he wasn’t just about to bring the ref over and win his baby back. Don’t play dumb, Truth. No, that guy was just agreeing to be at Truth’s party. Truth says Bunny and Jordan saved the world! And then Booker T, that’s a great hit. Truth just wants an autograph! Oh man he left his marker and Bugs Bunny shirt in the locker room.
Priest tells Truth this is Bad Bunny. Oh, Truth’s bad, Bunny. Ok, DP got him this time! Truth runs off, but will he have a much, much better plan to get his baby back next time?
Miz complains to Adam Pearce!
He’s really going to allow Lashley to intimidate THE WWE World Champion?! Are we really rewarding this behavior? Did Miz not make a deal with Lashley? There’s nothing on writing! Pearce should be on Miz’s side! That punk, Bad Bunny, hitting Miz is bad enough! But now this?! Pearce surprisingly agrees with Miz. So many have doubted Miz but now Miz is champion. That means Miz needs to take on all challengers! And there’s none bigger than Lashley! Miz isn’t saying he won’t be a fighting champion, he just wants to delay this for when the time is right. Then Miz needs to make his decision quick. The clock is ticking, 20 minutes left. Miz makes a call, but who to?
The New Day VS Retribution!
Xavier Woods still can’t complete the series against Mia “Reckoning” Yim, but he and Kofi Kingston are more than happy to take on the towering T-Bar and menacing Mace! Will things finally be settled with Mustafa Ali’s horde so that they can all move on?

Ali is FURIOUS! But at the same time, it is kinda his fault… Ali grabs a mic while the New Day laugh all the way to the back. Ali shouts at his people, “AGAIN!? How much longer are we gonna do this?!” How many times are they going to fail? Humiliate and embarrass him?! How much longer will he have to deal with this crap!? He’s carried them all on his back and all they do is fail! Ali storms off, will he give up on Retribution before they can redeem themselves?
Lashley and MVP head back to gorilla position!
Time is almost up! What will Miz’s decision be?!
Adam Pearce is in the ring!
“It’s been an hour, and the deadline for The Miz to answer Bobby Lashley’s ultimatum is here.” He introduces Lashley, and both the Chief Hurt Officer and MVP return to the ring. They shake hands with Pearce, and Pearce introduces The Miz! Miz and Morrison both walk out and head back to the ring. Lashley is upset that Miz is NOT dressed to compete, but what did he expect from Miz after what he said while talking with Pearce? Miz and Morrison get mics and Pearce keeps the peace. Lashley issued his challenge for the title, Miz had an hour to think, and has an obligation to give his decision. Miz says he has made his decision. He needs more time!
Quit stalling, Miz! You’re wasting Lashley’s time, and wasting time is like wasting money! Lashley doesn’t like wasting his money. Miz says he’s not worried about money, but the honor that this title deserves! There are many superstars coming after this title! Morrison would love his opportunity, too! MVP says Miz didn’t make a deal with the other superstars! Miz wants them to understand, he just needs more time! MVP steps aside, and Lashley cracks his knuckles. Miz understands Lashley wants the WWE Championship, and he deserves that match.
But Miz wants to be at his best so that the fans and the title get what they deserve! Miz just needs more time to give us all the caliber of match it deserves! At least wait a week! Right? Pearce can do that! Management is busy but this is best for business! But then here comes BRAAAUN!! The Monster Among Men storms his way to the ring, still upset that he wasn’t considered for the Elimination Chamber, and perhaps about a few other things. But Strowman says, “If anybody’s getting a WWE Championship match around here, it’s me!”
Pearce says Strowman can’t just barge out here but Strowman says he can do whatever he wants! It’s pretty clear that Pearce and Shane McMahon have a vendetta against Strowman, which is why they’re keeping him away from the title. The FORMER Universal Champion is way more qualified than Lashley! Miz says Lashley can’t let Strowman talk to him like that! MVP tells Miz to shut up, he’s not stirring the pot. Miz says he’s just defending- Shane appears?! Shane O’Mac is back again and he goes right to the ring! Shane gets a mic as fans clap and cheer on their screens.
Shane wants everyone to cool off, and says Pearce needs to be more stern. He tells Strowman he can’t just barge down and demand a title match. And to that point, if there’s a few neurons left that Strowman didn’t get the concept of this year’s Elimination Chamber, that was all for former WWE World Champions, not Universal. Strowman said it himself he was one, not the other. Well Strowman still thinks that idea sucks. He thinks Shane sucks, Miz sucks and Lashley sucks! Strowman wants his opportunity TONIGHT!! Shane says that idea sucks, so no. Then give Strowman a match with the challenger! Okay now that is intriguing! Strowman VS Lashley? YES!
Well Shane and Pearce love that match! The fans seem to like that, too, so here it is! Strowman VS Lashley, but the stakes are raised! If Strowman wins, next week we make it Strowman VS Lashley VS The Miz, Triple Threat for the WWE World Championship!! Miz is the only one who hates that idea. Strowman says that’s the smartest decision Shane’s ever made. But then Lashley CHOP BLOCKS Strowman from behind!! Morrison, Miz and MVP bail out as Strowman writhes and clutches his leg! Lashley stares Strowman down but Strowman still gets up to walk that sneak attack off! Will the Monster Among Men prove mightier than the Rocky Mountain Machine? Will things only get worse for Miz from here to WrestleMania?
Tornado Tag: Lucha House Party VS The Hurt Business!

Randy Orton speaks.
“Failure. Failure is not a word that I’m all too familiar with.” Orton’s record proves it, but recently, he finds himself surrounded by it! Last week, he should’ve won the gauntlet so that he would’ve been at the best advantage in the Elimination Chamber! But he didn’t win that or the Chamber, and he was the very first out! So what’s the distraction, Orton? Every time he gets distracted, he does whatever he is to take care of it! Just like The Fiend! He set the Fiend on FIRE! Orton has made The Fiend no more. Some like to think he’s coming back, but he’s not!
But Orton is now in limbo. He is wondering, “Why can’t I focus on what matters?!” And the answer is Orton is distracted not by The Fiend, but by Alexa Bliss. Alexa’s ThunderDome takeover, her creepy pentagram and laugh, and for some reason, Orton is feeling hot. Orton BARFS UP BLACK INK!! The same ink that Alexa was happily drooling! What in the Hell is going on with The Viper and the Fiend’s best friend?!

She just can’t do this anymore! She can’t focus on her matches, on what she loves doing, and that is wrestling! Ric having the audacity to dance around with Lacey like that’s his unborn child is not okay! This isn’t about who is better, but about the legacy of the Flair name! This isn’t funny anymore! Does Ric see Charlotte out there? This is not the performer she is supposed to be! She’s sorry but he has to go home! Ric never said he was the father. And he saw a lot of potential in a genuinely good human being. He sees “potential” in a lot of young women. But doing it on Charlotte’s time with a coworker is not okay!
Ric says he was just trying to motivate Lacey like he did Charlotte! He doesn’t want to say Charlotte became who she is because of him, but he did have a part in it! Charlotte is an all-time-great already, but what about the tough love and advice, their time together? He was just trying to expand the Ric Flair brand! The man behind the Raw Women’s Championship title! He wants the women’s division to be the biggest thing ever! So sorry if she thinks he’s doing something trashy! He wants “Flair” to again be a household name! Well, Charlotte isn’t seeing that. Ric wants to be her dad, he wants to support women, he’s their biggest fan, but then he is taking the spotlight! Her time in the ring is her time!
Charlotte says she is working to prove she isn’t just “Ric’s Daughter,” but that she is Charlotte! He is still trying to be the Nature Boy, at her expense. She is thankful for everything he has given her, but let her be that person on her own. She still loves him, but… Charlotte storms off and Ric doesn’t seem to know what to do. Will the Flair family still be a family after this?
Naomi & Lana VS Dana Brooke & Mandy Rose!
The #RavishingGlow have a title shot in their back pockets, but the #SexyMuscleFriends are not out of the chase! Will Dana & Mandy prove that their #FlexAppeal is more than enough to earn their own shot?

Lana drags Dana up while the tag champs watch backstage. Dana rolls Lana, TWO! Dana ROCKS Lana, drags her over to the corner, and Mandy tags in. They coordinate, scoop slam to KNEE! Cover, TWO! Mandy bumps Lana off buckles, stomps her down, then lets off as the ref counts. Tag to Dana, Dana handsprings in to back elbow Lana! Tag back to Mandy, and Dana feeds Lana to Mandy’s scoop! Lana fights out, reaches for Naomi, but Mandy holds her back!
Lana ROCKS Mandy and tags in Naomi! Mandy whips Lana but Lana RAMS Dana! Lana and Naomi combine for a DOUBLE FACEBUSTER! Cover, Naomi & Lana win!
Winners: Naomi & Lana, by pinfall
The best friends celebrate and hurry away, will they be able to make Nia & Shayna #FeelTheGlow on the Road to WrestleMania?
AJ Styles w/ Omos VS Ricochet!
The Phenomenal One and the One & Only revive an old rivalry, but with Styles’ colossal cohort ringside, will Ricochet stand a chance?

It wasn’t quite phenomenal, but Omos says that was quick work! Omos then looms over Ricochet, and Styles wants him to finish it! Omos dead lifts Ricochet right up, for a TOWERING TWO HAND SLAM!! Styles is phenomenal, Omos is one of a kind, will these two start to take over Raw on the Road to WrestleMania?
Miz and Morrison talk backstage.
If Lashley wins, Miz still faces Lashley. If Strowman wins, Miz faces both of them! This is not the plan! Morrison says root for Lashley. But that’s not good enough! It’s better than both! Strowman comes over and Morrison asks what’s up. Miz and Morrison hurry away, but the battle of behemoths is finally upon us! Will the Monster Among Men manhandle the All Mighty to then mangle The Miz?
Braun Strowman VS Bobby Lashley w/ MVP!
The Hollywood A-Lister put his foot in his mouth and now he’s facing down a massive challenge next week! Will these kaiju of wrestling both be going after The Miz’s gold? Or will the Rocky Mountain Machine be able to derail the Strowman Express?
Surprisingly, The Miz heads to ringside now! He surely wants to keep an eye on this battle since it determines his own fate. The bell rings and the two titans tie up! Lashley puts Strowman in a corner but Strowman powers up and they go around the ropes. The ref wants a break but Strowman puts Lashley in a corner. The ref counts, Strowman lets off at 4, and Miz joins commentary. Lashley gets around Strowman to waistlock and SLAM Strowman down! Strowman gets right up, Lashley gets him in another waistlock but Strowman switches to SLAM Lashley! Cover, ONE! Strowman hammers Lashley and Lashley gets to a corner.
MVP coaches Lashley but Strowman whips Lashley corner to corner! Strowman throws elbows into Lashley over and over as Miz says he didn’t really need to honor the deal he made. Strowman runs to SPALSH Lashley, then he scoops him! Lashley grabs ropes to resist the slam so Strowman TOSSES him out! The ref wants Strowman to wait but Strowman goes out the side!

Strowman is a rag doll! But Miz gets in to rush Lashley, only to get a MIGH HIGH SPINEBUSTER for his trouble! Lashley aims at Miz as Miz slowly sits up. MVP demands Miz get up to pay for trying to go back on their deal! SPEAR!! Lashley decimates a monster and a champion, will he be all of that and more after next week?!
This was a pretty strong Raw to follow Elimination Chamber and steer things towards Fastlane. I will say there were some straight up filler with Lana & Naomi VS Dana & Mandy and Styles VS Ricochet, mostly to keep Lana-Naomi and Styles strong. Poor Ricochet… Now, I know Sheamus VS Hardy wasn’t really for anything, so in a way it’s filler, but because of how much longer and how much more competitive that match was, it doesn’t feel as awful as the filleriest filler that those other matches were. Riddle VS Morrison was a great opening match, but was also lengthier and more competitive so it isn’t really filler but showing Riddle’s on a roll now that he’s champion.
New Day VS Retribution wasn’t filler because after New Day’s win, Ali gets pissed at the team and acts like they’re at fault. This is progress for the Retribution story, where the other members might actually kick Ali out of the group and either go on their own or finally be themselves again. The Tornado Tag wasn’t really filler, it was showing that Alexander & Benjamin can be on the same page when there’s no tagging, and they dominate that way. With so few tag teams on Raw, I feel like the only team strong enough to challenge the Hurt Business is once again the New Day, which is a sign of how poorly WWE/Vince is treating the tag division during this time.
I liked the interaction with R-Truth, Priest and Bad Bunny. Priest and Bunny are faces for now but Truth constantly getting things confused could push Priest into hitting Truth and getting him some Heel heat. Priest VS Garza was good, and not really filler as Garza was getting at Bunny as much as he was taking the fight to Priest. Garza was 24/7 Champion, he might go after Bunny at some point, and I really hope we get a lot of stuff from now to Fastlane, and a lot of stuff at Fastlane, for this title. Truth already kinda wasted his Elmer Fudd shtick before this but he might bring it back around just for his part in this story.
Asuka & Charlotte VS Nia & Shayna was a very good match and definitely not filler, it was a great way to adjust for the changes with Lacey Evans being shoot pregnant. I still don’t like that they were work-shooting it, but I guess “distracted” Charlotte accidentally booting Asuka and that’s why they lose works out. The backstage segment with Ric and Charlotte did a LOT to salvage this story, because it got all the feelings out and even framed it, as should have been framed all along, that Ric really was just helping Lacey. Charlotte and Ric still have tension, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they ruined this moment by having Ric just latch onto, say, Peyton Royce. Also Rhea Ripley coming to Raw, HELL YEAH!
Orton had a good promo on what Alexa is doing to mess with him, but what made it a great segment was the barfing of the black goo! Alexa’s powers are growing, Orton is being haunted, The Fiend is coming back, it will be great. The main story being the world title was all great stuff. There was a deal between Miz and Lashley, Miz wants to chicken out of it, and then things just get worse as Strowman gets pissed. We do get a great match out of it, and I’m a bit surprised that Lashley won. I would think Miz finds a way to use the two behemoths against each other next week, but I suppose it’s just easier to book if it’s him and Lashley 1v1.
McIntyre didn’t play a part tonight but that perhaps makes the most sense of anything because he won the Chamber only to get the crap kicked out of him by Lashley and Miz. But surely, McIntyre will confront whoever wins next week, maybe that’s a Fastlane match, then maybe we circle back to McIntyre VS Sheamus for Mania. There are still a lot of variables, but this is going to be some good stuff that will slowly but surely help Raw get back up in ratings. Or at least up in my scores here. Speaking of…
My Score: 8.5/10

Axiom watches NXT UK episodes on Peacock.
Tyler Bate walks over to see it’s Tyler Bate VS A-Kid for the Heritage Cup. Bate was always a big fan of A-Kid’s. They had some excellent matches in NXT. Axiom agrees, A-Kid’s the best. What ever happened to him? Bate says Axiom reminds him of A-Kid. He isn’t sure what it is, he can’t put his finger on it. Axiom says he gets that a lot. But Bate, that Heritage Cup match was very unique, a real masterpiece. How about they create a masterpiece of their own tonight? Bate loves that idea! But then in walks Damon Kemp with sarcastic applause.
Kemp says he was walking around, and overhead them. Friendly competition makes him sick! “I respect your work a lot! I respect your work to infinity!” When Kemp was in NXT UK, he learned that all the Limeys are soft! And the European wrestling style is overrated! And if you ever see A-Kid personally, tell him that Kemp says he’s hot garbage! Well, if Axiom does see A-Kid around, he’ll tell him. Kemp walks off, but Bate says Kemp is a “right wazzock.” A what? A pendejo. Oh! Okay. Bate heads out, will Axiom get that friendly competition? Or will he first take care of Kemp’s attitude first?

Joe Gacy says, “A day of vengeance is on the horizon for The Schism.” Rip Fowley says, “We seek vengeance for something that has been owed to us for far too long.” Jagger Reed says, “The NXT Tag Team Championships have been kept from us since The Dyad’s inception.” Gacy says, “Tonight, Rip and Jagger change their destiny by altering others’ reality.” Ava Raine tells Edris Enofe & Malik Blade, “We know who you are. But everyone at Chase University, you worship a false idol. You are not a family. You are abusive, devious, and delusional. School spirit will not help you tonight, because Chase University will fail. There is no unit stronger than the Schism.”
They are four roots, one tree, but will they be the final team to enter the Fatal 4 Way?
Apollo Crews speaks.
“The city of Charlotte. Packed restaurants, tons of foot traffic, bars with lines out the door. Cars flying down I-85. I came out early to feel Charlotte’s energy, and I feel the city’s excitement all the way up here. NXT’s coming, and I’m coming. I need two falls, two pinfalls, two submissions, or one each. I’ve visualized this match a hundred times. Money Melo is gonna be fast, he’s gonna be flashy, but I am ready for Melo’s handprint. My best will always be better than his best. And if Trick Williams wants to get involved, well Trick’s gonna get handled. Melo wants to call me the past and him the future? At Vengeance Day, the past will dictate the future!”
Apollo has spoken, but will he speak his vision into existence? And just who did Apollo see having his back against Trick Melo Gang?
Wes Lee heads to the ring.
The North American Champion is here, ready for his fight with #HardJustice this Saturday! Wes gets the mic to say, “Yo~! We are T-minus four days from NXT back on the road, and we are swangin’ through Charlotte, North Cackalacky, for Vengeance Day.” And it’ll be a big day for Wes literally because he has his biggest test in Dijak. Dijak is back and claims to be serving justice, but ultimately he just wants what’s shining on Wes’s shoulder. Saturday will be tough, Wes will probably take an ass-whooping. But just like Wes did with Tony and Carmelo, the Cardiac Kid will rise as your North American Champion!
But wait! Here comes DIJAK! “Mr. Lee, I want you to soak this in. I want you to soak it all in. Enjoy these moments, because these are your final days as NXT North American Champion. That was a real impassioned speech you gave, really powerful and motivating. But the reality is, it’s not gonna make a damn bit of difference. You had EVERY opportunity to hand me that championship, but you were too stupid to take it, weren’t you? And now… On Saturday, you’re gonna be standing across the ring, staring down the biggest and baddest man in the ENTIRE NXT locker room! And when that happens, I’m gonna rip that championship from your cold hands.”
Wes says that is exactly what Dijak will have to do! You will have to pry this title from Wes’s cold, dead hands! But understand that it’s much easier said than done. Wes didn’t win by accident. Every minute of training, every risk Wes took in and out of the ring, and every trial and tribulation, Wes has FOUGHT! When Wes felt like he couldn’t anymore, the chaotic support from every single one of the fans showed him that he can reach levels he had only dreamt of! So Saturday, Dijak isn’t just fighting Wes. He is fighting everyone on the #WesSide. Fans cheer Wes on! But Dijak says Wes might be fighting for the fans, but they won’t be fighting for Wes!
Wait! Von Wagner is here? He and Robert Stone walk out and Stone “apologizes.” But maybe his ears aren’t working properly. Dijak said HE’S the biggest and baddest? Have they forgotten about Von? Von tells Dijak, “Take those stupid sunglasses off, we’re inside. and I’m right here. And the only injustice is me getting overlooked.” Dijak tells Von that his eyes are focused on championship gold. Dijak has no issue with Von whatsoever. Wes says he isn’t sure about that. Fans chant “WAGNER SUCKS!” Wes says Dijak claims to be the biggest and baddest, but Von claims HE is the biggest and baddest, so Dijak is basically calling Von a liar.
Dijak tells Wes to shut up, and he knows what he’s up top. What? Wes just sees an injustice that needs to be fixed! Wes hears Von and Stone loud and clear about being overlooked. Come Tuesday… We may need to have a new #1 contender to the North American title. So uh… If Von happens to beat Dijak tonight, then Von will no longer be overlooked. Von will be looked at as a contender. And Stone says that is why they’re here! Right, right. So let’s please, PLEASE solve this injustice. Or Dijak can just give Von his jacket now. Dijak throws hands on Von! Von hits back, and fans fire up as the brawl is on!
Von clotheslines Dijak up and out! Refs rush out to stop this, but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Will we see this brawl turn into a match? WE WILL! Wes gets out of the way, who wins this battle of behemoths?
DIJAK VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

Von endures, fans rally up, and Von fights up. Von throws body shots, then haymakers! Von whips Dijak to a corner, then lifts Dijak for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Von is annoyed but he watches Dijak stand. Von CLUBS Dijak, HEADBUTTS him, then ROCKS him with a right. Von whips, Dijak ducks ‘n’ dodges, then holds ropes! Von runs in but is sent into ropes! Von sputters, Dijak stomps him down, and then rains down fists! Stone protests but Dijak lets off to have the neck wrench again. Von endures, fights up, and he throws body shots. NXT returns to single picture as Von throws hands, but Dijak throws elbows and knees!
Dijak SMASHES then DISCUS LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Wes is on commentary and says it was only right that we find out who is truly the biggest and baddest in NXT. Dijak choke grips but Von fights free! Dijak wrenches, mule kicks, then back elbows hard! Dijak reels Von in but Von suplexes Dijak into buckles!! Fans lose their minds while Dijak flops down.

Dijak shoves Von away and ROCKS him at the ropes! Dijak runs but Von KNEES him low! Von runs, to RAM Dijak!
Dijak rebounds to RAM Von, then he ELBOWS, ELBOWS and CLUBS Von! Then he SUPERKICKS! Dijak runs, into a BOOT! Cover, TWO!! Dijak survives and Stone can’t believe it! Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” and Von waits on Dijak. Dijak slowly rises, Von choke grips, but Dijak flips through the lift! To choke grip and HIGH JUSTICE!! Cover, TWO?!! Von survives and the fans are thunderous! Von goes to a corner, Dijak storms up, “This is Awesome!” as Dijak throws elbows. Dijak hoists Von up top, CLUBS him in the chest, then climbs up after him. Dijak choke grips again, but Von elbows Dijak over and over and over!
Von CLUBS away on Dijak, roars, and hits a SUPER BUTTERFLY SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?!? Fans are thunderous, Stone is beside himself, and Wes is loving this! Von gets Dijak up, OLYMIPC- NO, Dijak slips out to have the HAMMERLOCK SLEEPER! Von flails, reaches out, Stone coaches him, but Dijak says this is gonna be Wes’s future! Von is fading out, then Dijak torture racks! FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, Dijak wins!
Winner: DIJAK, by pinfall
Hard Justice has proven to be THE biggest and baddest man in NXT! But will he prove he is championship material? Or will Wes Lee prove he is must-see?
Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo are watching backstage.
Stacks says he can’t stand that Dijak. He’ll probably win the title on Saturday now. But The Don says not to worry about Dijak. “Street justice has no expiration date.” But what was this big impact Stacks was gonna have? Stacks has to take care of a few things. The first or the second? Both. Wow, really? Yeah, he’s the Underboss! That’s what they do. So next week, Stacks gets it done. Tremendous. Now let’s take care of that other thing. They head out, just what is Stacks going to do to handle his business?
Nikkita Lyons tweets out her status.
“Surgery was a success. Thank you deeply to the WWE universe, my Lyon Pride, for all the love and support you show. I’ll be back stronger than I’ve ever been. #ReadyToPounce Also, a big thank you to the wonderful surgeons, doctors and nurses.” It may be another setback, but will Lyons use that to set up a huge comeback?
McKenzie Mitchell is backstage with more.
McKenzie Mitchell says there are many questions surrounding the attack on Lyons in the NXT parking lot, so she has prepared some footage so that we can get a better idea of what happened. Among those on scene at the time of the attack are Valentina Feroz walking away, Dani Palmer, Arianna Grace and Alexis Leddy walking together going inside, and an unidentified woman driving away. There is also Elektra Lopez walking and talking with newcomer Lola Vice, closest to Nikkita but going on their own path. Freeze here, and you see Tiffany Stratton just going through her bag, but maybe she’s hiding the evidence.
And of course, Zoey Stark is spotted walking away, and even Tatum Paxley and Lash Legend at the very end of the lot. Indi Hartwell and Lyra Valkyria come to Lyons’ aid, and we then spot Wendy Choo peeking out of a car window. Did Wendy witness anything? McKenzie says no one is taking credit for this attack, but she will keep us informed if anyone comes forward with information. Who is behind NXT’s newest whodunnit mystery, and why did they do it?
NXT looks closer at Bron Breakker VS Grayson Waller.
The Big Booty Nephew’s NXT record is already golden, but the 21st Century Success Story isn’t impressed. In fact, he’s sick and tired of it. Waller has been running this for the last eight months, and now he’s made the decision that he needs to be champion. New Year’s Evil was going well until a freak accident took Waller out. So at Vengeance Day, their rematch will be inside a STEEL CAGE! Waller says Bron is a wild dog, and Bron admits his temper has gotten the better of him. But no one has taken advantage of it like Waller. Waller is living rent free in Bron’s brain. Bron says his temper has led to both is biggest wins and most crushing losses.
Waller says Bron will beat himself this time. Bron thought he needed to control the anger, but then he realized, with the steel cage all around them, there’s no need to hold back. Bron will beat Waller within an inch of his life, and pin what’s left! But Waller says he can read Bron like a book. And Waller has read that book, so he’ll past this test. Waller will not just beat Bron but he’ll embarrass him! Bron promises to break Waller inside the steel, but Waller went viral the last time he was inside a cage. This is what Waller wanted, but it’ll be Bron’s Vengeance Day. Who survives the steel to bring home the gold?
Tyler Bate VS Axiom!
Even with Kemp being a right wanker, the Big Strong Boy and the Undeniable Truth are going to focus on friendly competition! Will Bate continue to get A-Kid vibes from Axiom? Or will Axiom be even better than that?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Bate powers Axiom to ropes. The ref counts, Bate lets off, and fans applaud the sportsmanship. They reset, tie up again, and Bate has a cording hold. Axiom whips Bate away, Bate goes up and under and then knuckle locks. Bate steps over, headlocks, waistlocks, trips and body scissors to a clutch, TWO! They tie up, Bate cravats and snapmares, but Axiom is right up.

A big strong win for the Big Strong Boy! “That was Awesome!” but will this earn Bate a title match on the other side of this Saturday? But Bate and the fans show Axiom respect. But then Kemp CLBOBBERS them both! And he hits Axiom with an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Kemp says he told them before, but then Bate chases Kemp off! Will Bate make sure Kemp learns European wrestling is anything but soft?
Isla Dawn speaks.
“In my land, Imbolc is the beginning of Spring. It is a time to exhale all that is behind us, and to mark new beginnings. Tonight, on the Eve of Imbolc, we purge the constraints of the past. We purify the negative energy surrounding us, and we transfigure the uninitiated into members of this house. There has always been a rage inside of you,” Alba Fyre. And she just needed a nudge to reveal it. “Shall we?” Fyre nods, and Isla says they are letting go of their unbridled passions, shed their egos, and relinquish their need for control. “These emotions no longer serve us.” Fyre repeats that, and throws water on the fire. With this, the initiation process has begun.
Isla and Fyre smile as they walk into the night. Will the darkness within Fyre grow stronger with the Wicked Witch’s influence?
Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.
McKenzie is with Trick Melo Gang, and Trick is shaking. But he’s just joking. He’s “shaking like booty meat on a Friday night.” Not because he’s scared, but because it’s cold out. “But Trick Willy can’t lie. This whole Apollo thing, I mean, I don’t know. Should I even go to Vengeance Day? He looks, he sees in the future, that’s some Cleo stuff, man!” Melo has Trick calm down. Of course Trick’s going to Vengeance Day. Apollo can stay daydreaming, but they stay scheming. McKenzie notes the match is Best 2 out of 3, so how does Melo see this playing out? Melo says everyone knows him by now, so we know how Melo sees this playing.
“Apollo needs to realize that this ain’t Jackson, that this ain’t Jordan, that these shots I take don’t ever jam.” Melo is of a different caliber! Melo took Apollo from the sidelines to the headlines. Apollo could have a top combine vertical, and his fingertips still wouldn’t reach Melo’s level. Melo tells Apollo that you can be this or that, but until you beat Melo, you can never be HIM. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be. But is Melo overlooking the wild cards in the equation?
Roxanne Perez and Toxic Attraction sit down for video interviews.
The NXT Women’s Champion is far, far away from Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne for this final interview before Vengeance Day. Vic Joseph notes Roxie is the youngest woman to ever compete in the Royal Rumble match. How did that feel for her? She was overwhelmed, and so grateful to hear her music hit in front of over 50 THSOUAND people, and make the run down the ramp she’s dreamed of for so long. It was so incredible! Jacy says, “Incredible? More like incredibly pathetic! RoXaNnE~, cOnGrAtUlAtIoNs~! YoU wErE iN tHe RoYaL rUmBlE~!” But you didn’t win! And you’re not going to WrestleMania, but to Vengeance Day, to lose your title.
Gigi says the reason Roxie lost the Rumble was cuz she got put through a table! That look on her face when she realized she got tricked was great. But it’ll all be over for Lil’ Miss Perfect real soon. Roxie says Gigi & Jacy act like they’re best friends, but Roxie knows there is a lot of truth behind what they said to each other last week. Gigi says the truth is that Roxie stands no chance at Vengeance Day. How is Roxie gonna beat them both? She has the same percent chance of winning the Triple Threat as she did winning the Rumble: ZERO! Roxie is good and all, but going against the two baddest women in NXT at the same time, she has NO chance.
Actually, Roxie says she has more of a chance- Jacy cuts her off to say that Roxie had a good run. Eight months in NXT is like a little jog. Good for her! But Roxie peaked at 21 years old. That sucks. But this Saturday, it’s all coming to an end. Roxie says it’s not. But Gigi says it is. At least Roxie can go home to Texas and tell everyone she had a “cup of coffee” in the big time. She just made one critical mistake: messing with Toxic Attraction. And look on the bright side! She can play the “What If” game! What if Roxie stayed in her lane and didn’t punch up? Roxie starts to speak but Jacy cuts her off again, telling her to shut up.
Jacy says “What if” Roxie was a good little girl and didn’t make any waves. Whether Roxie likes it or not, it’s 2v1. Gigi says Roxie’s ride is over, the 15 minutes of fame are over. Roxie storms out, and Toxic Attraction make fun of her for not being able to handle it. Vic says Toxic Attraction weren’t being fair, but Jacy says, “Who cares? After Saturday, she’ll be old news. You’re looking at the next NXT Women’s Champion right here.” Then which one will it be? Gigi says you’re looking at her! Gigi knows everyone, especially Booker, is a big fan of Roxie, and is just trying to find a crack between Toxic Attraction, but there isn’t one.
For almost two years, Toxic Attraction has controlled the NXT Women’s Division. But for the last six weeks, everyone’s been on a vacation from it. That changes on Saturday, as order will be restored when Jacy & Gigi take their rightful spot. This day has been a long time coming, Roxie is just the first one to push it to the edge. But at Vengeance Day, they course correct things back to Gigi- Er, they become NXT Women’s Champion. Jacy notices that “flub,” but before she can respond, ROXANNE POUNCES!! Roxie fires off with all the pent up anger on both of them! She TACKLES Jacy through the set!!
Fans fire up as security rushes in to stop Roxie from tearing into Toxic Attraction more! Will nothing, not even two opponents at once, stop The Prodigy from proving why she IS NXT Women’s Champion?
Stevie Turner VS Dani Palmer!
Updated, online and ready to play, the Fourth Dimensional Superstar is finally back in action! Will Stevie prove that she is always two steps ahead and two levels above? Or will Dani delete Stevie before she even gets started?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Stevie has an armlock, then wrenches Dani to wrangle her to the mat. Dani fights up, rolls, backflips and wrenches, but Stevie gets away. They go again, Stevie waistlocks but Dani switches, only for Stevie to elbow free. Stevie headlocks, Dani brings her down to a knee and handstands to slip free! Stevie avoids Dani’s headlock to BOOT, BOOT and then scrape Dani on ropes! Fans boo, Stevie runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Stevie laughs like mad and she pushes Dani down. Stevie then brings Dani up, but Dani pushes her away. Stevie kicks low, CLUBS Dani, then turns her for a HANGING NECKBREAKER!
Dani staggers to ropes, Stevie snapmares her and clamps on a chinlock. Fans rally, Dani fights up, and arm-drags free! Stevie runs back but into an elbow! Dani dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! And again! Dani keeps moving but Stevie kicks low! But Dani JAWBREAKERS back! Dani runs to THESZ PRESS! Dani rains down wild hands, thrashes Stevie around, and then drags Stevie up. Dani runs, but Stevie reels her in by her tights! Stevie whips Dani away, and BOOTS her down! Stevie hauls Dani up, TWISTING DDT!! Stevie isn’t done there, she drags Dani up, for the SIDE EFFECT! Cover, Stevie wins!
Winner: Stevie Turner, by pinfall
Stevie just rerouted Dani’s connection and has her first win in NXT! Will Stevie soon be the number one trend in wrestling?
Kiana James is on the phone.
She promises to see “Zack” there, and says, “Love you, too.” Fallon Henley then walks over and asks who she was talking to. No one, don’t worry about it. Fallon knew it! She KNEW Kiana would break Jensen’s heart!! Fallon, calm down, it’s not what you think. You don’t even know why you’re upset right now! Oh? Then who is Zack?! But then in walk the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Kayden Carter points out the #1 contenders, and how they’re not talking about their upcoming match. Katana Chance says that sounds like trouble. Kiana says sound travels fast around here. But the only sound the champs will hear on Saturday is, “And NEW…!”
Has Fallon been giving Kiana a lot to drink lately? They’ve been a team for like a week while KC Squared has been a team for over a year! Fallon says with all due respect, we all know, we all get it, Katana & Kayden are BFFs. But Saturday is the biggest match of Fallon’s life, so she is going all out. Kiana says they are going all out. Well, we’ll see about that. But either way, the titles are staying with KC Squared. Katana & Kayden head out, and Fallon gets Kiana’s attention. Stay focused for Saturday, but just know this conversation isn’t over. Fallon heads out, is she making a mountain out of a mole hill?
Charlie Dempsey VS Drew Gulak w/ Hank Walker!
The Son of the Gentleman Villain cost the Philly Stretcher and his blue collar protégé last week, so this is all about vengeance before Vengeance Day! Will Gulak lock Dempsey down? Or will the Philly Stretcher be the one getting stretched?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Gulak headlocks for a takeover. Dempsey fights up, hits a back suplex, but Gulak holds on! Gulak has control again but Dempsey headscissors. Gulak moves around, has the legs, but Dempsey keeps shoulders up in the stack. Dempsey pushes Gulak away, they stand, and Gulak facelocks. Dempsey wrenches out, wristlocks, but Gulak grinds forearms. Dempsey wrenches, Gulak gets away, and fans rally up as NXT goes picture in picture.
The two circle, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder for a test of strength. Dempsey powers Gulak down to his knees, but Gulak powers back up. They go shoulder to shoulder again and now Gulak powers Dempsey back. Dempsey bridges, but Gulak has the cover! TWO as Dempsey gets an arm up! Gulak puts that arm down, TWO as the other arm comes up! Gulak has both arms, TWO as Dempsey bridges back up! Gulak stands over Dempsey, brings him up, but Dempsey monkey flips! Dempsey rolls back to a cover, TWO as Gulak sunset flips! TWO, and Dempsey headlocks to keep Gulak down! Fans applaud as the technical exchange continues.
Gulak fights up to his feet, powers his way to a facelock, but Dempsey snap suplexes to a cover, TWO! Gulak has the facelock but Dempsey stands up again. Dempsey goes for a trip but Gulak uses that to get a cover, TWO! Dempsey fights up, Gulak facelocks, then scoops and SLAMS Dempsey into ropes! Dempsey clutches his legs but Gulak storms up.

Dempsey turns to trip Gulak into a HEEL HOOK! Gulak kicks away to get free! Dempsey UPPERCUTS, has the leg, DRAGON SCREW! Gulak clutches his knee and fans rally up again. Dempsey covers, TWO! Dempsey underhooks the arm, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Bridge, and then roll into the BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Gulak endures, fights up, but Dempsey shifts to have a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Gulak endures, Dempsey turns it to a ghost pin, TWO!
ANOTHER BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! Dempsey keeps on Gulak with a deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! “This is Wrestling!” as Dempsey brings Gulak up. Gulak wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then has the CROSSFACE CHICKEN WING! Dempsey pries free, arm-drags Gulak away, and storms up, to get the leg! Gulak slips out of the Dragon Screw, but Dempsey gets the leg again! DRAGON SCREW! And then Dempsey has the leg for a HEEL HOOK! Gulak kicks with his free leg, and he gets away! Both men rush in, Gulak blocks the forearm to LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Winner: Drew Gulak, by pinfall
Hank is dazed, did he just get used as a pawn? Is Gulak using his own student to help him cut corners?
Von is fuming backstage.
He throws a chair at the wall, and Stone says it ain’t working. This is not working. Von throws a locker room bench, and shouts, “YA THINK?!” Stone asks a question: Why does Von have Stone managing him? Stone has been managing Von for over a year now, yet he knows nothing about Von! Who IS Von Wagner? He’s big, he growls, but so do a lot of other guys. If Von wants to get to the next level, then he has to show Stone who he is! He has to show us who he is INSIDE! Help Stone help Von! Stone storms off, will these words help unlock Von’s true potential?
Triple Threat Tag: The Dyad VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe VS Chase U!
The New Day, Pretty Deadly and Gallus are waiting as there’s still room for one more for Vengeance Day! Will Rip Fowler & Jagger Reed plant the roots of The Schism in Charlotte? Will the underestimated underdogs finally unlock their potential? Or will Andre Chase & Duke Hudson share this #TeachableMoment with everyone? We find out, after the break!
NXT returns as Malik & Edris make their entrance, followed by Chase U’s entrance. In this kind of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are legal at any given time, so Malik & Edris agree to let the other teams start. Duke and Rip circle as fans rally behind Chase U. Duke and Rip tie up, Rip knees low and whips Duke, but Duke blocks! Duke glares at Rip, reels him in and scoops to SLAM! Tag to Chase, Duke whips Rip and Chase drop toeholds for the “LET’S GO~!” ELBOW! Chase covers, TWO! Chase drags Rip up but Rip gets away to the third corner. Rip CHOPS Edris as part of the tag!

Fans fire up while both men are down! Reed tags in to run and DROPKICK Duke!
Reed turns around, into a BIG back drop! But no Duke means no tag! Thea Hail coaches Duke up but Rip tags back in. Rip goes after Chase but Chase throws him out! Malik & Edris call to Chase, they’re his only option! Chase runs over, but then The Dyad trips Malik & Edris up! Chase has no one, and turns around into a throat chop!

Put it together for all these teams! But will this road game be a big win for Chase U? Will Pretty Deadly redo the #SidePlateCheck? Will Gallus Boys be on top? Or will ya bois the NEW~ DAY~, still be your W, W, E, N, X, T, Tag, Team, CHAMPIONS~?
Now this was a go-home episode! No need for filling/wasting time with recaps, just give us promos, action and other stuff to hype up what’s coming. Good promo from Apollo Crews, and good response from Trick & Melo. Apollo’s vision seems to foreshadow Oro Mensah being his back-up, as I’m pretty sure I saw his dreadlocks in that silhouette. At the same time, even if someone were to cancel out Trick, that doesn’t guarantee Apollo wins. Melo could win one fall cuz of Trick, Apollo could win one fall cuz Oro cancels out Trick, and then the third fall is truly 1v1. I’m leaning towards Melo since he makes sense as the next challenger to THE NXT Championship.
Speaking of, we got a pretty good promo vignette for Bron VS Waller in the steel cage. And from how they’re talking about it, this is going to be a No Escape Steel Cage match, where the door isn’t an option and climbing the walls won’t win it for you. I am all for that, and I think all Steel Cage matches should be like that to get rid of some of the more overused tropes of a Steel Cage match. Good interview promos from Roxie, Gigi & Jacy, and while part of me wanted Roxie to explode on Toxic Attraction verbally, her going after them directly was just as good. Roxie really should show she has grit, but I feel like her initiating the brawl is tantamount to her standing tall. I hope this doesn’t put the go-home math against her, she only just got that belt.
Stevie Turner’s first match back was pretty good, and I’m actually happy to see they came up with a completely kayfabed chat box for her entrance, as I imagined last week. Good promo from Isla & Fyre to establish that they’re a team now. I was sensing there’d be something building towards Valentine’s Day in a couple weeks, and I think this whole “Who is Zack and what is he to Kiana?” is gonna be the thing. Kiana is gonna reveal that’s like her brother and Fallon’s gonna feel dumb for getting protective of Jensen’s feelings. But with that, I don’t think they win the tag titles at Vengeance Day. That should probably be Isla & Fyre.
We also got a real good “NXT Investigates” promo from McKenzie to point out just how many suspects there really are in the Whodunnit of Lyons’ parking lot attack. Indi VS Stark was a good match to play off that, but I’m starting to wonder if Valentina Feroz did it. Feroz seems like the least likely, so that’d be quite the twist. Given her talk with Elektra Lopez about doing underhanded things, Feroz said she couldn’t do anything to Wendy Choo because Wendy’s a friend. But Feroz and Lyons have no connections, so Feroz could attack her from behind with no problems.
Good promo from Wes Lee, Dijak, Von and Stone to set up Dijak VS Von. That was a good match, but of course Dijak won to have momentum going into the North American title match. I still think Wes wins, but what was really interesting to come out of this was Stone getting fired up telling Von to bring out some personality. Is Von going to suddenly have a gimmick? I can’t even be sure what that’d be. Also, good promo from Tony D and Stacks. I thought Von was gonna be the big guy Stacks went after but then this happened, so maybe Stacks calls out Odyssey Jones or Quincy Elliot to give one of those guys some screen time. And also a win, because I feel like Stacks is gonna bite off more than he can chew.
We also got some great technical wrestling singles matches. Gulak VS Dempsey was not as good as Bate VS Axiom, but I like the detail that Hank takes the hit to tip things in Gulak’s favor. Hank might confront Gulak on that move, and we get closer to Heel Gulak. Then we got just a hilarious and very meta promo out of Bate and Axiom referencing A-Kid. Kemp sticking his nose in things is fine, he needs something to do and honestly should’ve had more time in NXT UK. Bate winning makes sense, he’s also back and needs some momentum. Kemp’s blindside attack definitely earns him a match with both of them in turn, probably winning against Axiom but losing to Bate.
Really good stuff out of the NXT Tag Division tonight, too. The opener of Creeds VS Indus Sher was good, though I feel like maybe they’re going for too real of a fight feel. Julius just came off like he forgot the match flow they discussed. But it was a clever move to have Indus Sher win because of the mishap with Ivy. This will add something more to the Diamond Mine story, and Indus Sher really should be climbing up the rankings. Especially with everything going on in the title story.
Great Triple Threat main event, and as great as all three teams are, it makes sense Chase U won. New Day is Face, Gallus and Pretty Deadly are Heel, so there needed to be another Face team. There’s intrigue in the Chase U story and it can play out in the Fatal 4. And Indus Sher being Heels, if New Day retains (or even if Chase U wins), that’d be a great program going to Stand & Deliver.
My Score: 8.8/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/31/23)
Orlando stays Dark!
Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!
As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!
- Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
- Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
- Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
- Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
- Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
- Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
- Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
- The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
- Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.
A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.
And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.
