NXT UK hears from tonight’s tag team match opponents.
Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster are going up against Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams tonight, and Andrews says that they respect those guys. They know what it’s like to be underdogs and you never underestimate the underdog. Williams & Jordan say they’ve faced some “bomber” tag teams, and beaten them, too. So who says they can’t do it again? The last six months have been hard on South Wales Subculture facing The Hunt and Eddie Dennis, but they’re not looking back, they’re looking forward.
Williams & Jordan are ready to win fair and square, but getting through SWSC means they’ll be dancing all the way to the NXT UK Tag Team Championships! Well, maybe not dancing. But either way, one team takes a step forward, will Williams & Jordan beat another pair of former champions to head for Pretty Deadly?
BREAKING NEWS for next week!
NXT UK changes the start time for the United States, as it will now be live at 4 PM Eastern!
Aoife Valkyrie speaks.
“After everything I’ve gone through, and everyone I’ve beaten, you are my toughest battle.” She talks to herself in the mirror. “You used to push me, and now you’re pulling me down. Well I’ll show you that there’s a difference between those that aim for the top and those that settle. And that difference counts. A Valkyrie is only drawn to the toughest challenges. I’ll show you.” Will Aoife prove to herself that she can still reach the highest point in NXT UK?
Teoman VS Danny Jones!
The kid who fought for everything he had so that he could give his family everything they’ve ever wanted is making his in-ring debut in NXT UK! Will he fight hard enough to make everyone respect, admire and even fear him?

Winner: Teoman, by submission
The Evil Eye is upon NXT UK! What prize will Teoman look to take for his own?
Xia Brookside has more work for Nina Samuels.
The Leading Lady turned personal assistant now has to clean Xia’s room! Why not call housekeeping? No, no, Xia gave them the day off. This is all for Nina. From making the bed to doing the dishes, though perhaps not perfectly, Nina thinks she’s done. But then she forgot about the dishes in the washer. Will Nina be able to get it together? Or will the month mercifully fly by with Brookside?
Eddie Dennis speaks with Wild Boar.
While Boar has been a “model student,” and made great progress, he committed a “Cardinal sin.” Boar separated himself from the pack and made it weaker! In the Street Fight, Dennis suffered the consequences! Primate suffered the consequences! So now Boar faces the consequences, as Primate and Tyson T-Bone punish him! And now that T-Bone has joined The Hunt, will they be more dangerous than ever?
The French Hope is the first French-born female in the WWE, and though having barely started, she’s already in history books. She is going for the opportunities she deserves in NXT UK. She has blessed the brand with hope, class, and has the support of her people. Will Amale look to become the first French-born women’s champion in WWE, as well?
Gallus spends time alone in their bar.
Wolfgang may not be pretty, but he knows a cheat. Mark Coffey tell shim not to beat himself up, everyone else will try to do that. Joe Coffey walks over and says they need to go back to go forwards. They need a plan. The Gallus boys aren’t on top. But they need to remind everyone that they were ruthless. It isn’t about titles or grudges. It is about making a statement. Gallus shakes hands on it, but just how will they rebuild and redeem themselves?
South Wales Subculture VS Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams!
The High-Fiving, Stage-Diving Welsh Rockstar and the Modfather have tasted the tag titles and want another, but the Bhangra Badboy and the Lucky Yin just want their first bite! Which team will be hungrier and head for the self-proclaimed “tasty” Lewis Howley & Sam Stoker?
The teams sort out and Williams starts with FMW. They circle, tie up, and then break. They go again, break again, and FMW has to worry about his sore ribs from that Street Fight.

Jordan then tags in, which surprises and perhaps annoys Williams. Jordan and Andrews circle, tie up, Andrews wrenches and wrangles Jordan down.

Winners: Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams, by pinfall
They beat former NXT UK Tag Team Champions, but not the way the Bhangra Badboy wanted to! Will he and Williams sort things out before their next match? Or will Williams continue to take every chance he gets?
NXT UK profiles Ilja Dragunov’s recent developments.
The “Moscow Madman” was always just a nickname, but now it may be becoming his reality. Every time he’s been in a match, a reminder of Walter sets him off and he goes into a berserk rage. We will hear from Dragunov next week on what is next for him.
Trent Seven speaks.
The weigh-in will be live on WWE’s The Bump! He is excited, because he has worked his butt off harder than ever before. He has never worked this hard for anything! He feels like there are a lot of people supporting him, but most of all he had Tyler Bate. Trent was there for Bate, so the least he could do is be here for Trent. Trent is in the best shape of his life and it is truly inspiring. Seven vows to do this. Seven is inspired by Bate, too, as they’ve both had the same attitude towards pro-wrestling. So to use the skills and the platform they have to motivate others, it’s a great feeling. Seven has avoided scales just so as not to get in his own head.
We will all learn together if Seven has made it under 205! Will Seven be ready to challenge for the Cruiserweight Championship? If he makes weight, that match happens NEXT WEEK!
NXT UK hears from Ben Carter.
“It’s been a pretty wild 12 months for me, to say the least.” He was in the US for soccer, and then in his spare time, doing everything he could to make a name for himself in pro-wrestling. No one knew who he was, but then fast-forward a year, and he’s living a dream. Carter had many options, but he wanted to come to NXT UK, and to come home. It’s like a brand new start. And with that new start comes a brand new name! Nathan Frazer will become a champion, grab the brand by the throat and take it wherever he wants it, and become the greatest to ever do it. Will the Prodigy formerly known as Ben Carter still carve an impressive path to the top?
Walter has become THE longest reigning NXT UK Champion ever, but is going to return to issue a statement! What will Der Ring General have to say about the state of the brand?
Mixed Tag: Jinny & Joseph Conners VS Piper Niven & Jack Starz!
History is being made every day, and for NXT UK, it is having their first-ever Mixed Tag! But history aside, this is about settling scores and ending grudges! Will the Fashionista finally pay for blocking Piper’s path to the NXT UK Women’s Championship? Or is Starz not worthy of fighting alongside her against Jinny and her Righteous Killer?
The teams sort out and it’s ladies first as Piper and Jinny step up. Jinny asks if Piper is “thick” in the head. She backs off to tag in Conners, and so Starz comes in by default. Conners and Starz circle, tie up, and Conners goes around to wrench and fireman’s carry takeover. Cover, ONE, and Starz gets away. Conners asks “Shorty” if he knows what he’s gotten himself into. They tie up, Conners wrenches and arm-drags to clamp onto the shoulder. Conners half nelsons to snapmare to a cover, ONE! Conners mocks Starz to keep climbing and let the 15 minutes of fame run out. Starz keeps his cool, ties up with Conners, but Conners gets a cravat.
Starz endures as Conners snapmares him down to a chinlock, but Starz slips out to wrench, spin, and BACK DROP Conners, to then have the arm again. Conners rolls back but Starz drops to throw Conners over! Cover, ONE, but Starz ghost pins, ONE! Conners runs into an arm-drag and Starz grinds the arm down. Starz shifts to a short arm scissor and he pulls on the arm. Conners rolls back to a cover, TWO and Starz still has the hold! Conners powers up to dead lift Starz! But Starz sunset flips, TWO! Starz dropkicks Conners down and Conners gets mad! Starz grins and tags in Piper, so now Jinny has to enter. Jinny runs, dodges Piper but comes back to dodge again.
Piper and Jinny circle, Conners talks trash and that distracts Piper for Jinny to attack! Piper shoves Jinny away, blocks a punch and sweeps the leg to drop a senton! Cover, TWO! Piper drags Jinny up to scoop, but Conners tags Jinny in to save her! Starz has to come back, and he comes back with fast forearms! Starz whips, Conners reverses but Starz dodges to TACKLE Conners! Starz keeps moving to hit Conners with a basement EuroUpper, and a back drop! Conners catches Starz to a clinch, they’re on the ropes, and the ref counts, Starz powers up to push Conners away! The two stare down, Jinny swipes at Starz, but Conners sucker punches then BULLDOGS Starz!
Piper protests but Jinny gets away with a ROLLING KICK! Conners taunts Piper but Jinny orders him to stay on Starz. Conners scoops and SLAMS Starz, covers, TWO! Conners suplexes Starz high and hard, covers, TWO! Starz sits up but Conners jams his knee in the back! Conners digs his boot into Starz’s head, then taunts him to tag out. Starz throws body shots, Conners shoves him to hit a tilt-o-whirl SLAM! Cover, TWO! Conners kicks Starz to the corner, pushes him around, and tells him to hail Queen Jinny! Conners throws body shots, haymakers, then stomps Starz down. Conners taunts Piper for making a horrible choice in partners, but he runs into Starz’s elbow!
Starz runs, Conners catches him and shoves him away, but Starz rams him with a shoulder! Things speed up, Conners ducks the crossbody! Starz flops out of the ring, and Jinny is lurking. Piper storms over but Conners gets in the way. The ref reprimands and tells everyone to back off. Conners drags Starz up to put him in, and then stalks Starz to ropes. Conners drags Starz up to CHOP him, ROCK him, but Starz hits back! Starz bobs ‘n’ weaves, hits Conners, Conners hits back, they’re brawling! Starz hits EuroUpper after EuroUpper but Conners goes to backslide! Starz fights that off to DECK Conners!
Both men crawl, BT Sports Studio fires up, Conners drags Starz but Starz fights to tag in Piper! Jinny has no choice but to be legal, but she decides to run! Piper chases her into the ring, and POUNCES her! Piper drags Jinny up, whips and TOSSES her, then does it again! Piper runs to BASEMENT CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Piper rains down rights on Jinny, drags her up, and whips her to a corner. Piper runs in but Jinny BOOTS her, then ROLLING KICKS! Piper staggers, Jinny CHOP BLOCKS and rolls Piper up! TWO!! Piper staggers up but Jinny is after her with forearms! Piper HEADBUTTS Jinny down! Conners tags in, and he says Piper is not a queen, just a commoner!
Piper SLAPS Conners and feeds him to Starz’s EXPLODER! Conners ends up in a corner, Jinny is in the other, Starz and Piper DOUBLE CANNONBALL! Starz feeds Conners to Piper’s MICHINOKU DRIVER! Starz becomes Piper’s weapon, MILITARY PRESS SLAM onto Conner!! Cover, Starz & Piper win!
Winners: Jack Starz & Piper Niven, by pinfall
Starz & Pipes go down in history as the first NXT UK Mixed Tag winners! But more importantly, they took the fight to Jinny & Joseph! Will they leave these bullies behind on this Road to WrestleMania?
A pretty good episode for NXT UK all in all. Bates VS Mastiff was a very good British Rounds match, and I almost expected Mastiff to win with another knockout when he and Bate were trading hands. But Bate’s journey is the story, and he pulls out a big win to keep going towards the Heritage Cup. Teoman had a good debut, though I wouldn’t have expected his theme to be electronic, not rock. We got good promos from Amale and Aoife were decent, and I expected more from Nina Samuels having to do Xia Brookside’s chores. Her plotting to sabotage Xia only to fail felt like a good story thread but it looks more like Nina is just a bad personal assistant.
I am very surprised that The Hunt is changing up its members, but I think this means Boar legitimately got hurt during that Fatal 4 Way and they need to have a reason why he’s gone. T-Bone joining the group is good for T-Bone, he wasn’t doing anything at all. Good to know we’ll be hearing from Dragunov and Walter next week, and I hope Walter’s announcement is that he’s heading to the States to join the rest of Imperium for a spell. However, I’m very disappointed that Ben Carter has to change his name to Nathan Frazer. The new gear looks great, but why a new name? We just had “Ed Harvey” refuse to be that and become Sha Samuels! Why are we only now, a month or so after he arrived, renaming Ben Carter, who really is a prodigious talent!? That’s absurd!
It’s also odd that Trent Seven’s weigh-in is being put on WWE’s The Bump. Pretty sure it’s just so NXT UK fans will want to watch The Bump to see that segment. But this must mean Devlin VS Seven really is happening next week, I can’t imagine they’d swerve us just so The Bump could get a few more views for one week. Also, the timing of this is interesting since Devlin issued his challenge to Escobar for the near future. I suppose this means Seven loses and wonders if it was all worth it. Jordan & Williams VS SWSC was a good tag match, and I figured Williams would find a way to cheat to win. They will surely get a tag title match, and Jordan might be too distracted worrying about Williams to focus, and that is why they lose.
Gallus had a good little promo to put forward that they have to refocus. I’m hoping that means the Coffey Brothers go after the tag titles and then Wolfgang can try for the Heritage Cup or even UK Championship. And the Mixed Tag main event was good, but Mixed Tags just naturally have a harder time using the hot tag momentum for drama since one tag is basically two tags, and as we saw, Jinny did not want to face Piper if she could help it. Nigel McGuiness on commentary did a good job bringing up the controversy of Piper hitting Conners when co-ed contact isn’t allowed. But naturally, Piper and Starz win to finally give the Heels comeuppance, but I’m not sure where this goes from here. Will Piper have another try at the NXT UK Women’s Championship and Kay Lee Ray? I feel like the moment to pull the trigger on a title change has passed, so what would we even get out of it?
My Score: 8/10

PLAY BY PLAY
Bianca Belair w/ Asuka & Alexa Bliss VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control!
The RawEST Women’s Champion has the Empress of Tomorrow and the Five Foot Fury backing her up because we all know DMG CTRL doesn’t roll alone! Bianca gets the mic to say, “Y’know, Bayley, I really considered coming out here and challenging you again tonight. I mean, why wait for Extreme Rules? But then I remembered that you would never make this just about you and I. And even if you did come out here and accepted my challenge, it wouldn’t be you alone. I learn from my mistakes, and it was not about to be three on one again, especially not after last week.”
Bayley could’ve faced Alexa 1v1 but no. Iyo & Dakota had to interfere again because Bayley can’t fight her battles alone. So Bayley, Bianca will say this: If Bayley wants the title at Extreme Rules, then good luck. Because her girls will be watching Bayley’s girls to make sure this stays between the two of them. But here comes DMG CTRL makes their way out. Bayley thought Bianca would’ve learned her lesson last week. This will never be just about the two of them because it is bigger than the two of them. Bayley wouldn’t expect the fans to understand, either.
Bianca was groomed, handpicked and trained to be a champion. But those like DMG CTRL had to groom themselves, train themselves, and dreamt about this since they were 12 years old! Bayley said she would take over the WWE and that is what she’s doing! Yes, Bianca is in this position, she’s thriving, she’s accomplished all these things, but she was placed, picked, chosen. “Girl… Uh-uh.” Bianca has earned everything, nothing was handed to her. She’s here because she’s been showing up and showing out. Where’s Bayley been? Rehabbing?
Now, Bianca is sorry Bayley got hurt but she’s not sorry Bayley came back to Bianca as champion. Bianca will not belittle herself to go down to Bayley’s level. Bayley tells fans to shut up! She WAS injured, she DID get hurt. She couldn’t even walk 10 months ago, but she taught herself how to walk again, and how to run again. And Bayley pinned Bianca at Clash at the Castle! Something NO ONE had done in over 300 days! So yes, Bayley was injured, that’s why she wasn’t here. So fall in line like everyone else!
Bianca says no no no. Last time Bianca checked, Bayley WAS here when Bianca reached the top of her game. When Bianca main evented WrestleMania, Bayley WAS here. And the last 1v1 match these two had, Bianca KOD’d Bayley onto a ladder. Bianca gets it, though. She understands why Bayley returned with back-up. It’s because Bayley wasn’t ready to face a champion like Bianca alone. Bayley says, “Y’know what?” But then fans taunt and boo and that upsets Bayley.
“We’re not talking about the past, okay? The past is the past and I’m sick of you running your mouth.” But Bayley just got a great idea! At Extreme Rules, she feels like winning the Raw Women’s Championship in a LADDER MATCH. Fans cheer that ide and Bianca even smiles. Consider the ante up. But since Bianca can’t have Bayley, she’ll get extreme with Iyo tonight! Let’s go! Iyo nods and hands her belt over to Kai. She calls for the ref while the others exit, and the bell rings! For Iyo to turn around into a SHOTGUN dropkick!
Bianca kips up and fans fire up as Iyo bails out! DMG CTRL regroups but Bianca wants the Evil Genius to get back in, while Raw goes to break.
Raw returns and Bianca CLUBS away on Iyo in a corner. Bianca whips corner to corner, Iyo reverses and runs in but Bianca puts her on the apron. Bianca clinches but avoids the haymaker! Bianca waistlocks to bring Sky back into the ring, for a SLAM! Bianca keeps hold of Sky and fans rally up. Bianca ripcords Sky to then run her over with a shoulder! Bianca drags Sky up and TOSSES her across the ring! Sky gets up, and Bianca TOSSES her the other way! Sky gets to a corner, Bianca runs in and RAMS her shoulder in!

Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.
Last week, when Seth Rollins attacked Matt Riddle, that helped The Judgement Day defeat him and Rey. Part of that was also Dominik daring Rey to hit him, even kneeling and begging him to do it. What is going on in Rey’s mind right now? Kevin Patrick’s a father, yeah? So he knows there’s nothing like holding your newborn child in your arms. Wanting to give them the world, watching them grow up, envisioning the kind of person they’ll become, always wanting the best for them, no matter what. Rey will always love Dom, and he will never, under any circumstances, fight him.
But last week, when Dom gave him that chance, Rey wondered what happened to the kid he raised. He could not recognize this man Dom has become. Rey knows deep down inside, this is not Dominik. It can’t be! This is Rhea manipulating Dom’s heart and mind. But Rey can’t let that sway his focus. Tonight, Rey takes on Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins, and he needs to be at his best. Rey’s had his fair share of battles with Rollins, and he knows how savage Rollins can be. Rollins wanted to do more than just injure Riddle last week.
Rey may have mercy for his own flesh and blood, but with everything going on his head right now, there is no mercy for Rollins. Will the King of Lucha be able to take out all his anger on the Visionary?
The Miz meets with security backstage.
“Alright, gentlemen. I have recruited you for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am offering a prize package worht up to one MILLION dollars, including but not limited to an exclusive cameo in the upcoming spinoff movie of the Marine franchise, gift cards accepted at most department stores, a certified pre-owned vehicle, and career advice from yours truly, which in and of itself is worth $2 million.”
Now he did not want big, bulky, muscular dumb security, he wants smart and stealthy! That is why he chose them. They are not just elite security professionals, no! They are MIZFORCE! Say it with him! “MIZFORCE!” Again! “MIZFORCE!” One more time! “MIZFORCE!” Now go! Find He Who Shall Not Be Named and make sure he is not here! GO GO GO! The guards hurry off, but will MIZFORCE find Dexter Lumis before Lumis finds Miz?
Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio!
The Visionary has pushed things with Matt Riddle so far, they’re going into the FIGHT PIT at Extreme Rules! Will Rollins sharpen his edge at the expense of the King of Lucha? Or will he suffer for everything Judgement Day has put Rey through instead?
Before the match, Rollins gets the mic and fans sing his song, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Rollins welcomes Edmonton to Monday Night Rollins! And he is our host for the festivities. He is a visionary, he is a revolutionary, he is Seth “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins should be here as the NEW United States Champion, But the only reason he is not, that reason has a name that Rollins doesn’t even wanna say. But he is not champion now because of Matt Riddle!
Last week, Rollins had Lashley in the center of the ring, dead to rights, but Riddle made Rollins take his eye off the ball for one single second, and it cost him! Riddle has been a thorn in Rollins’ side for months, but that is the last time! In two weeks, they finish this at Extreme Rules inside… THE FIGHT PIT! Fans like the sound of that! Some even chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” But then the singing of “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” drowns that out. Rollins has to be honest, though, this past week, Rollins has heard the whispers and read the tweets. No one thinks he stands a chance!
Everyone says the Fight Pit is Riddle’s match. Rollins had to go home and take a long look in the mirror. Rollins came to the harsh conclusion that he’s SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! It doesn’t matter what kind of match it is! Cage match, Hell in a Cell, Tables, Ladders, Rollins has been in every single type of match you can imagine, and he’s won ’em all! As good as Riddle may be inside the cage, he has nothing on Rollins. Rollins has one thing Riddle will never have: his brain! His Einstein level acumen for the fight game!
Extreme Rules may be Rollins’ first time inside the Fight Pit, but he’ll tell us this. “When all the dust settles, Riddle is gonna be flat on his back, and the entire world is gonna be singing my song, calling me the King of the Fight Pit!” Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins knows Riddle is watching, so Riddle better take notes. Rollins is going to give “Father of the Year,” Rey Mysterio the beating he is too much of a coward to give his own son! HAHAHAHAH! But with that Rey makes his entrance! Will Rey show who’s really the coward here?
Rey DROPKICKS Rollins the moment he’s in the ring! The ref tries to stop Rey but Rollins bails out. Rollins is furious and throwing a fit, but Raw goes to break.
Raw returns and Rollins puts Rey in a corner to grind his forearms in. Rollins talks trash, stomps away and digs his boot in, but the ref counts. Rollins lets off, and wipes the blood from the cut on his forehead. That’s from Rey spiking Rollins off steel steps. Rollins CLAWS Rey’s back, then he fishhooks Rey’s nose! Rollins lets off as the ref reprimands, but he ROCKS Rey to a corner. Rollins whips Rey corner to corner but Rey goes up and over then tilt-o-whirls and RANAS!

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

Rey flops down and Rollins conducts the “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Fans boo, too, though, and that upsets Rollins. Rey stands up, Rollins runs corner to corner, but Rey dodges! Rollins hits buckles and then Rey fires off haymakers! Rey RAMS Rollins, whips but Rollins reverses. Rey drop toeholds to send Rollins into buckles! Rey then climbs up and rains down fists on that bloody forehead! Fans count all the way to TEN, and Rey gives us some Latino Heat!
Rey follows Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses. Rey holds ropes, elbows back then springboards, but Rollins catches him to a fireman’s carry! GUTBUSTER DROP! Rey flounders but Rollins drags him up to slide him out! Rey belly flops onto the floor and Rollins goes out after him. But here comes Dominik, with a chair! Is Dom here to attack Rollins for their past? Or is he here to watch his father suffer? Dom pats Rollins on the shoulder, so it’s the latter as Raw goes to break.
Raw returns again and Rollins whips Rey HARD into the corner! Dom is sitting ringside now to watch as Rollins drags Rey out onto the apron. Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, then lets off to line up a shot. Rollins BOOTS Rey into the ring! Rollins offers a fist bump, and Dom takes it! Fans boo them both but Rollins goes into the ring. Rollins tells Dom to watch this. Rollins drags Rey up to snap suplex! Uno Amigo! And then another snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Rollins drags Rey up again, gives some Latino Heat, and suplexes again, but Rey throws knees! Rey makes it a DDT!
Dom isn’t as happy watching now with Rey and Rollins both down. Rey gets up, adjusts his mask and goes to a corner. Rey climbs, but Rollins Electric Chair Lifts him off the corner! Rollins turns Rey around but Rey RANAS Rollins into the buckles! Fans fire up while both men are down again! Rey goes to the apron and fans fire up as he climbs. But Rollins ROCKS Rey first!

Fans boo, Dom is just distracting Rey! Rollins distracts the ref, RHEA RIPLEY POSTS Rey!! Dom puts Rey in the ring for Rollins to CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs as he puts Rey in a PERUVIAN NECKTIE!! Rey is OUT, Rollins wins!
Winner: Seth Rollins, by submission
The Visionary gets to show off his new hold, not that he had to! That was a message to Riddle that Rollins can grapple just like him. But it also shows that The Judgement Day had to help Rollins out. Will The Visionary survive when he has to beat The Bro on his own? As for Rey, is there no reaching Dom anymore?
But speaking of Matt Riddle, he’s watching this backstage.
The Bro’s attention is trained on Rollins, so when someone pats him on the shoulder, he freaks out! Oh, it’s Bobby Lashley. Don’t scare him like that, bro. Didn’t think you were silent but deadly. You gotta keep your head on a swivel around here, y’know? Lashley gets it. He just wants to wish Riddle luck against Damian Priest tonight, not that Riddle needs it. And Lashley also heard what Rollins was saying about The Fight Pit. The MMA guys know what it’s like, but Rollins doesn’t. It’s either you tap out, or you get knocked out. That’s what Rollins fears, so don’t let him get away on this one.
Riddle says he’s not letting Rollins get away. Riddle will fight him, submit him, knock him out, Rollins ain’t going anywhere. Alright. One more thing: Lashley knows Riddle wanted to help Lashley last week, but he should never do that again. “My bad, Bobby.” Well, Riddle has Rollins where he wants him, so knock his teeth out! Damn straight, bro! Riddle is fired up now. Will The Bro take the fight to the Punisher before entering the Pit?

AJ Styles heads to gorilla.
More MIZFORCE guards are down and out but Styles shrugs it off. Kevin Patrick finds him, though, and asks that before facing Sami Zayn, can Styles explain why he rejected Finn Balor’s offer to join Judgement Day? Has everyone forgotten what The Judgement Day did to Styles? To get respect, you gotta show respect. Styles has been on his own for a while now and… Finn appears!

Finn says The Judgement Day has achieved so much already. But with Styles, him and Finn together, they could change the business again! Okay, hear him out. Styles has a match with Sami Zayn, right?

Gable says his number one guy, Otis, hasn’t been 100% since throwing down with that “moron,” Braun Strowman! If not for that two ton doofus, the Academy would’ve schooled those fools. Well y’know what, Chad? It would’ve been good to know that before he got hit in the jaw. But they gotta get even with Kevin & Gargano. Gargano’s not gonna embarrass Theory twice in a dump like Canada!
But then Theory gets a phone call. Hello? It’s for Gable. It is? Well, okay. Gable is in high demand. Hello? “A two ton doofus, huh? Bet you think you’re real funny.” Braun promises Gable he won’t be laughing next week, beause the Monster of All Monsters is coming for him in his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota! That way, they won’t have to fly Gable’s body home for his funeral! Sh-sh-shoosh please… Theory says Gable’s got this.

They all trust each other, right? Then trust him about Styles. Styles is gonna come around. Kevin Patrick walks over to ask Damian Priest if he might hold back against his former friend in Riddle tonight. Rhea asks back, “What’s with the dumbass questions?” Priest says yeah, what’s he supposed to say? Of course he’s NOT holding back. And he’s gonna have zero remorse! KP said it himself, Riddle’s a former friend. This right here, this is his crew! This is his family. Rhea’s said it time and again, the Judgement Day runs Raw! So as far as Priest is concerned, Riddle is just running his brains into the clouds like always.
Just look at this past year! Riddle spent most of it pretending to be Randy Orton! And now Rollins has Riddle so confused, Riddle thinks he’s in the UFC. “Yo, Riddle. You’re not a Viper. You’re not a cage fighter anymore. And you sure as hell aren’t my friend. Tonight like everyone else, you Riddle, will fall while the Judgement Day will rise.

Wait, here comes The Judgement Day! And of course, Finn has a mic to say, “AJ, AJ, AJ. It pains me to see you like this, bro. And I can’t help but think that if you had accepted our offer earlier, the outcome of this match may have been a little bit different. You deserve so much better than this, AJ. You deserve it, man. So seeing as I’m a fair and generous person, I’m asking you as a friend to rise up and join the Judgement Day.” Finn offers a hand, Styles thinks for a moment, but he stands up on his own. Finn throws up the Too Sweet, maybe Styles will accept that. Styles throws up the middle finger instead!
So Finn attacks Styles! As do Priest and Dom! They mug Styles, Rhea gets a chair, and Finn puts the chair around Styles’ head! Rhea holds it in place, Finn runs up, but Finn stops short of the stomp. Finn says he could’ve ended Styles’ career, but he’s Styles’ friend. This is NOT what friends do. The Judgement Day loom over Styles, having given him the most menacing of ultimatums. Will the Phenomenal One stay a lone wolf? Or will he join the wolf pack that is The Judgement Day?
Bianca, Alexa & Asuka are having fun backstage.
They’re all excited after Bianca’s big win over Iyo Sky, and then Candice finds them! Candice hopes Bianca shuts Bayley up at Extreme Rules. Oh, Bianca definitely will. And congratulations on the debut victory! Candice thanks Bianca, but then “DING DONG! Uh, why don’t you two shut up?” Bayley says compliments are just jealousy in disguise. And bullies are just cowards in disguise. Oh, Candice’s feeling real confident after one win here, huh? They can change that. Dakota says Bayley has the title match to worry about. Candice says Dakota doesn’t.
Bayley knows Candice is new here, but DMG CTRL runs things. If Candice wants a match with Dakota, just wait for next week. And Bianca, see you at Extreme Rules. Oh, they don’t have to wait for that. Things get heated but everyone backs down. Will the Poison Pixie sting #CobraKai? Will this all explode before Extreme Rules?
Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day!
Rollins made sure Rey & Riddle didn’t win last week, but Riddle will let him off the hook until Extreme Rules. Will the Bro get his “brovenge” on the Punisher? Or will the Judgement Day just keep on rolling roughshod through Raw?
The bell rings and Riddle circles with Priest. The fans chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” and Riddle smirks. Riddle and Priest tie up, Priest puts Riddle in the corner but Riddle pushes back. They go along the ropes, into another corner, but Priest shoves Riddle down. Priest dares Riddle to come back and they circle again. They tie up, Priest puts Riddle on ropes but Riddle hops on to go after an arm! Riddle gets a HOVERBOARD, but Priest powers through to suplex! Riddle slips around to a SLEEPER! Priest gasps as he reaches for ropes but Riddle squeezes tight. Priest BACKPACK SENTONS!
Priest grins as he’s free, but Riddle springs to life to get the SLEEPER again! Priest scrambles to a corner, the ref counts the ropebreak, and Riddle lets off. Priest swings a back elbow but Riddle gets away. Fans cheer as the two reset and circle again. They tie up, Riddle waistlocks to headlock and hits a takeover. Priest pushes Riddle to the headscissors and holds tight. Riddle reaches out, moves around, and pushes free. Priest avoids the Penalty Kick and Riddle says it was that close. Priest shoves Riddle so Riddle shoves back. Riddle fires palm strikes but Priest bobs ‘n’ weaves to evade!
Priest swings, Riddle bobs ‘n’ weaves now! Riddle ducks Priest’s heel kick but Priest avoids the Final Flash. Riddle ducks the spin kick, but Priest blocks a kick to trip Riddle! Riddle avoids the stomps to literally kick Priest’s butt! Riddle kips up and fans fire up as Riddle dares Priest to bring it. PRiest laughs and applauds, but swings on him! Riddle catches Priest to a GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! BROTON! Cover, ONE!! Priest gets to ropes but Riddle storms up on him. Riddle CHOPS Priest, KICKS away on him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Riddle goes side to side, Priest SPIN KICKS him down!
The Judgement Day cheers but the fans boo as Priest rains down forearms! Priest paces, he drags Riddle up and says, “You’re trying to embarrass me on my birthday?!” Oh, well happy birthday, Priest. He TOSSES Riddle to a corner! But Riddle blocks the haymaker into a TRIANGLE, which he makes into a RANA that throws Priest up and out! Riddle is on the apron, Finn gets Priest out of the way, meaning Finn takes the PENALTY KICK! Riddle LEAPS at Priest, but Priest DECKS him out of the sky! Priest then suplexes for a BROKEN ARROW onto the barriers!! Riddle shouts in pain while Priest roars triumphantly, and Raw goes to break!
Raw returns and Priest keeps Riddle down with a motorcycle stretch. Priest taunts Riddle, “You want more pain? Yeah, you want more pain.” Priest digs his knee in deeper but Riddle powers up! Priest shifts to a chinlock but Riddle fires body shots. Priest CLUBS Riddle down and grabs the arms for more of the motorcycle. Rhea wants Priest to make Riddle pay, but Riddle KANGAROO KICKS! Riddle fires off palm strikes and a BOOT! Then he shoots around, ripcords, FINAL FLASH! Priest goes to a corner, Riddle kips up and runs in to forearm smash! Riddle goes side to side, another forearm smash!
Riddle reels Priest in but Priest fights the clinch. Priest shoves Riddle down, runs at him, but into the BROSPLODER! Riddle goes up and out to PENALTY KICK! Then a FLOATING BRO ATTACK! Direct hit and both men are down! Fans fire up, Riddle stands and puts Priest in the ring. Riddle hurries in, he blocks a kick to give a kick and he gets Priest up for a POWERBOMB! Flip over to a FINAL FLASH! Cover, TWO!! Priest survives and Judgement Day breathes easier. Riddle goes to a corner, he climbs up top, but Priest SHOVES Riddle down! Riddle hits barriers!
Riddle clutches his side while Judgement Day laughs at him. Priest goes out to fetch Riddle, and he hoists Riddle up to run and RAM him into more barriers! Priest snarls as he looms over Riddle, and Raw goes to break.
Raw returns one more time and Riddle has Priest up top now! Priest fights Riddle off with a HEADBUTT! Riddle falls, Priest stands up, but Riddle springs up after Priest! Riddle stands on the very top, brings Priest up with him, SUPER FISHERMAN SUPLEX!! Fans are fired up and Judgement Day is freaking out! Riddle crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Priest survives and Riddle can’t believe it! Both men slowly sit up, Priest throws a forearm! Riddle forearms back! Priest throws a body shot, and another, but Riddle CHOPS and CHOPS! Priest ROCKS Riddle, throws body shots and a HEADBUTT!
Riddle fires off palm strike after palm strike, but Priest ROCKS him! FINAL FLASH! Riddle runs, but Priest blocks this knee to BELL CLAP! And then ROLLING- ROUNDHOUSE!! Priest sits down, Riddle aims to BUZZ- NO, Priest ducks and shoves Riddle to a corner. Riddle goes up and over, Priest catches him! Riddle fights free to dragon sleeper! And gut wrench! Riddle tucks the leg, BRO DEREK!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Priest survives and even Rhea is shocked! Riddle is beside himself, but he drags Priest into a drop zone before climbing up top!
Rhea distracts Riddle, but then drops down as Priest CLUBS Riddle on the back! Priest drags Riddle into the Crucifix, for a DOM- NO, Riddle lands on his feet so Priest LARIATS him down! COMPLETE SHOT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Priest can’t believe it but Riddle survives now! Priest snarls and he aims at Riddle. Riddle rises, choke grip, SOUTH OF- NO, Riddle slips free, ducks and RK- NO!! Priest dragon sleepers but Riddle slips free! Priest springboards, into the FINAL FLASH!! Riddle hears the voices, bro! Finn gets on the apron but Riddle DECKS him! RK- NO, Priest blocks again!
Priest torture racks Riddle but Riddle fights free. Riddle has a SPLADLE! RIDDLE WINS!
Winner: Matt Riddle, by pinfall
But Dom, Finn and even Rhea attack! They mug The Bro, and then they feed him to SOUTH OF HEAVEN! “You think you know me.” WHAT?!? The Rated R Superstar is back! Edge runs in, dodges Finn and SPEARS Dom! Edge glares at Dom but Rhea saves him by dragging him out of the ring. Finn runs in, Edge dodges him, and SPEARS Finn down!! Fans are thunderous as Edge has risen like a dark phoenix! Edge gets a mic to say, “You have tried to finish me over and over again. But I always come back! Even if it takes me nine years, I come back. And I got to come back in Edmonton! In MY country!”
Edge doesn’t quit! So Finn, Edge has a challenge for you. Extreme Rules, for the first time ever, Edge VS Finn 1v1, IN AN I QUIT MATCH!!! The Prince glares at Edge, but he seems to nod yes! Who will go to the extreme to make the other say those dreaded two words?
A great episode tonight with so much set up for Extreme Rules. Especially with basically all the matches now having a stipulation, as is the point of Extreme Rules the PPV concept. Great opening segment with the Raw Women’s Championship story, and I like that it’ll be a Ladder match between Bianca and Bayley. It won’t be about pinning or submitting, which can definitely be to Bayley’s advantage since she needed DMG CTRL to pin Bianca, and can even have them help her cheat in winning the match.
Great to see Candice LeRae now joining her husband here on Raw, and it works on multiple levels that she beat Nikki. Nikki’s been just circling a breaking point that could reset her to SAnitY Nikki. Candice also getting in on the DMG CTRL story is cool, there’s a lot of possibilities here. Speaking of Johnny Wrestling, Gargano & Kevin had a great match against Alpha Academy, and of course Theory got involved. It bites him in the butt, The Academy loses, and then we get a good segment where Gable sticks his foot in his mouth. Gable is gonna get squashed by Braun, Gargano is going to have an awesome match with Otis, but I bet Theory also gets involved with that one.
Omos crushes more jobbers, but MVP was calling out Braun, so maybe Omos goes after Braun after he’s done with Gable? Omos VS Braun has potential, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they do the ring breaking superplex spot like back in the day. Great stuff out of Miz and his “MIZFORCE,” but of course MIZFORCE was going to get taken out by Lumis. At some point, Lumis has to draw a picture to illustrate what kind of match he wants with Miz, or just what he wants with Miz period.
Great match from Styles VS Sami, showing there is cross-brand storytelling with The Bloodline. I also like that there is more blending of stories as Finn keeps trying to recruit Styles. Styles refuses and pays for it, and then we get a great match between Riddle and Priest. Riddle winning with the Spladle is great because it keeps this going while still giving Riddle momentum going into the Fight Pit. Edge making his return is great, and him challenging Finn to an I Quit is wild. I cannot wait to see this one. The HHH Era is awesome!
My Score: 8.8/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (9/26/22)
Arthur Ashe gets Elevated!
Mr. & Mrs. Superbad are in the Dark!
As if Grand Slam wasn’t enough, AEW has some extra innings here with Dark: Elevation! Will Mr. & Mrs. Superbad, Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford, be hot together in Mixed Tag action?
- Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Capt. Shawn Dean & Skye Blue; Kip & Penelope win.
- Ortiz VS Serpentico w/ Luther; Ortiz wins.
If what I’ve read is correct, there are only TWO matches for Elevation tonight after how stacked Grand Slam was this year. And it’s pretty clear to see which way each match will go, too, so not much else to say.
