Pat McAfee joins SmackDown commentary!

The Punter of the Decade joins Michael Cole and it is his honor to be here!

 

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

The Tribal Chief is STILL WWE Universal Champion, and he again has Jey Uso and Paul Heyman by his side as he holds that belt up high in the ThunderDome. Fans boo and give thumbs down but that just makes Heyman laugh. Heyman hands the mic to Roman, but fans chant, “You Suck!” Roman says it is no secret, “we put a lot of eyes on SmackDown.” So for the new viewers, let’s tell them about the men Roman beat in the main event of WrestleMania. Heyman says he would be honored.

First is Edge, an ELEVEN time world champion, married to a hall of famer and is a hall of famer in his own right. Then there’s Daniel Bryan, a FIVE time world champion, also married to a hall of famer, and will “YES! YES! YES!” his way into the hall of fame when he retires, which should be soon after Roman stacked them and pinned them together. Take all of their accomplishments combined and the enormity of both men’s legacies, who came up against Roman, it was practically a Handicap match in THE main event of WrestleMania. McAfee agrees on commentary.

Roman says he took a page from Heyman’s playbook and Babe Ruth’d it! He called his shot: He was gonna smash ’em, stack ’em, and pin ’em 1-2-3. Then, they would #AcknowledgeMe. Now to be honest, it’s embarrassing! If Roman was another man, he’d never want to be in that situation. WWE will probably never put him in a Triple Threat again after that. Nobody wants to face Roman! No one wants that to happen to them! These were hall of famers, and he smashed ’em, stacked ’em and pinned ’em. And if he’s doing that to guys like that, who will want it next? Nobody! “Don’t nobody want to step to me now!” Not worth it! No one measures up to Roman, no one is on his level.

So after fulfilling the obligations and opened Roman’s show, cut the check, fire up the jet, time to go home. Heyman takes the mics for Roman, but here comes CESARO! The Swiss Cyborg finally had and won his first singles match at WrestleMania, and is now getting in Roman’s face! He looks at the Universal Championship, then gets a mic. Roman still takes his leave, but Cesaro figured as much. Cesaro doesn’t get to say his piece, but will he make Roman acknowledge him?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville talk backstage.

Cesaro walks by, they congratulate him on his Mania win, but he asks if they saw what “that son of a bitch” Roman did. No one is going to step up? Cesaro will. Not even for the title! He just wants a match tonight. Sonya says she’ll talk to Roman and see if he’ll accept that. Cesaro is fine with that, but is Pearce?

 

Rey Mysterio w/ Dominik Mysterio VS Otis w/ Chad Gable!

While the King and Prince of Lucha didn’t get those SmackDown Tag Team Championships off Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode, neither did the Alpha Academy. This battle has been brewing for months after Gable unleashed The Dozer on Rey’s ribs. Will Rey get his revenge and his redemption going 1v1 with the big man?

The bell rings, and Otis CLOBBERS Rey with his gut already! Otis gets Rey up, CLUBS him on the back, then looms over him as he writhes. Otis scoops Rey, pops him up to a military press, and then DROPS Rey! Gable cheers Otis on while Dom coaches Rey up. But Otis brings Rey up to SLIDE him out! Rey rolls through to come back and shoulder into Otis! Rey fires forearms, hotshots Otis away, then goes up a corner, only for Otis to trip him! Rey ends up in a Tree of Woe, Otis stomps a mudhole into him! The ref backs Otis off, but Otis comes back, only for Rey to sit up! Otis hits buckles, Rey turns around and leaps to SEATED SENTON! BASEMENT SEEATED SENTON! Cover, TOW!

Rey kicks but Otis blocks the whip. Otis whips Rey away, Rey ducks and springboards, into Otis’ arms! POWERSLAM! Gable tells Otis to keep on Rey and Otis drags him to a drop zone. Otis goes up the corner, leaps, but FLOPS as Rey rolls out of the way! Dom coaches Rey up, Gable shouts to Otis, and Rey dropkicks Otis onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Otis comes back! Rey trips Otis onto ropes, and hits the 619! Rey hurries up top again but Otis is back up! Rey leaps, for a CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Cover, Rey wins!!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by pinfall

That’s a huge win for Mysterio! The Dozer is furious but will he have to go back to the drawing board?

 

Kayla Braxton talks with Paul Heyman.

And from the look on Heyman’s face, he is both shocked and offended that SmackDown management wants Roman to compete tonight! It’ll be non-title, but will it even happen? We find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Kayla asks if Heyman accepts the challenge. That’s the question? Yes, because that’s what we do around here in the WWE: “We put smiles on the faces of Neanderthals, like Cesaro.” Does Kayla have any clue the enormity of the star power that is possessed by Roman and its affect on the ENTIRE WWE Universe? What happened on Saturday? Oh~ a rain delay! Rain delay, Heyman’s “kosher tuchus.” Those were the tears of the angels descending upon Tampa over the BEATING Roman was going to give, and that is what happened! Roman walked out champion, and neither Bryan nor Edge walked out of Raymond James at all.

And as Heyman was walking back with Roman, they were stepping in puddles, and Heyman said, “My goodness! Tears still descending from up above!” Except it wasn’t from the skies, but from the locker room. A visionary like Seth Rollins had to lower himself to face “a knuckle-dragging, slack-jawed, bucktooth Swiss quisling like Cesaro.” A billion dollar body but a 10 cent brain and THIS is who emerges to get in the face of Your Tribal Chief?! Cesaro is physically capable of being a great opponent, but he is not an attraction. He’s a joke!

So let’s put an end to the joke! Stop the train before it leaves the station! They will give Cesaro what he wants, tonight live on SmackDown! Cesaro in the main event against THE main event, Jey Uso. Of course Heyman had a way to change the course. But will Cesaro blast through the Right Hand Man to get at the Head of the Table, whether they like it or not?

 

Sami Zayn heads to the ring!

The Great Liberator didn’t defeat his long-time frenemy, and he didn’t even have Logan Paul on his side! And Sami loves to see the headlines outside of the one that is most accurate: “Sami Zayn Once Again SCREWED!” Where is that one, huh?! Well, does it exist…? Sami says it was his vindication! The stars were aligned, and he had the one star that matters in Logan Paul! Logan was supposed to help Sami expose the WWE and celebrate his grand victory, but that’s not how it went down, did it?

And here’s why: Logan’s mind was poisoned by Kevin Owens and the WWE Universe talking bad about Sami, like he’s a crackpot! It was poisoned by management, and the “corporate mouthpiece,” Michael Cole! They got in Logan’s head and Sami could sense it and feel it as he hugged Logan! And then in the match, of course he was distracted! Sami was worried about Logan! And that is the only reason, THE ONLY REASON, Kevin squeaked out that win. And Kevin is back there, obviously. Sami will not be denied vindication! Sami calls Kevin out for a rematch! There’s nothing to distract him, there are no toxic fans or stupid Logan Paul and his warped mind! No distractions, no way for Kevin to steal this!

But that’s why Kevin won’t come out, because- Wait, Kevin DOES come out to the ring! Kevin says if Sami’s gonna keep making excuses, then here we go! This WrestleMania rematch happens, after the break!

Sami Zayn VS Kevin Owens!

The bell rings and Sami bails out! Kevin smirks because he knew this would happen. Kevin slides out but Sami slides in. Then Kevin slide sin, but that’s a fake-out! Sami is on the outside and Kevin fires off! Kevin bounces Sami off the desk, puts him in the ring, and CHOPS him to a corner! And CHOPS again! Sami stumbles to another corner but Kevin gives him body shots! The ref counts, Kevin lets off, and then comes back, but Sami hits first! Sami whips corner to corner, Kevin comes back to CLOBBER Sami! BACK SENTON! Sami is in a corner, Kevin runs in but Sami bails out. Kevin goes to the apron but Sami hotshots him! Then BLINDSIDES him!

Sami rains down furious fists from all sides! Sami lets off to snarl and seethe. Sami puts Kevin on the ropes and chokes him! The ref counts, Sami lets off at 4 and CLUBS Kevin! Kevin gets up to CHOP back! Sami stomps Kevin to a corner, digs his boots in, and even stands on Kevin! The ref counts, Sami lets off, and then Sami throws haymakers. Kevin hits back, counter punches, and backs Sami down. Sami jawbreakers in return! Sami CHOPS Kevin against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Kevin reverses but Sami kicks back, only for Kevin to LARIAT! Kevin reels Sami in, suplexes to hang Sami out to dry, and Sami springs off the ropes to hit the mat!

Kevin fires off on Sami in a corner, hoists him up top and CHOPS him again! Kevin climbs up, Sami throws elbows and then adjusts to sunset flip POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Kevin survives, Sami argues with the ref, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Sami is again fighting Kevin off on the top rope. Kevin hits back, climbs back up, and Sami throws headbutts! Kevin falls back, Sami adjusts and leaps, but Kevin gets clear! Kevin SUPERKICKS Sami down! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives but Kevin hurries right to the top rope! SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Sami survives again and Kevin is beside himself! Kevin shakes his head as he stands Sami up, whips him, but Sami bails out to avoid a pop-up. Kevin pursues Sami as the ring count climbs, and gets him on the ramp to throw him into barriers! Kevin puts Sami back in at 5 of 10, knees low then whips, but Sami slips through the pop-up to get an arm!

Kevin fights the Half ‘n’ Half, then pump handles for the PACKAGE USHIGOROSHI!! Cover, TWO!!! Sami still survives that move, just like WrestleMania! Kevin gets annoyed, but he again has to pursue Sami on the outside. Kevin drags Sami from the barriers, puts him in, and kicks, but no Stunner! Sami again bails out, Kevin grabs at him on the apron, but Sami rakes Kevin’s eyes! The ring count is still climbing, though, but Sami wants to run away! Sami gets himself counted out, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by count-out

Kevin wins again, but it seems Sami didn’t want revenge that badly. But Kevin pursues and goes after Sami with fists at the ramp! Kevin puts Sami in the ring, kicks and STUNNERS! It seems Kevin still hasn’t beaten sense into Sami, will these two #JustKeepFighting?

 

Apollo Crews speaks.

“All of Nigeria has not stopped celebrating, ever since I smashed Big E into oblivion and I became the new Intercontinental Champion!” And he would give Big E a rematch tonight, but he’s not here. And do you know why? Two words: Nigerian Nail! That is the name of the move used by this giant beside Apollo here. This is his commander of the guard, Azeez, former member of the Nigerian Elite Guard. If anyone dares come for Apollo, they will be annihilated by the Nigerian Nail!

 

The Street Profits head to the ring!

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins are going to be facing the Dirty Dawgs for the tag titles later tonight, but first they are going to celebrate the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion! This will be the EST of celebrations, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Ford says it’s Friday Night, and he’s feelin’ right! Dawkins says it is official takeback season! Time to do spring cleaning to send Dolph & Roode back through that time warp they came out of so they can return to 1986. Oh, and about getting the shine back on those SmackDown tag titles! Right! The Dirty Dawgs will get snatched, but that’s not the only reason why the Solo cups are raised high. It’s been a long time, and they got some inspiration this past weekend. Some motivation! WrestleMania was a night for the ages, a night to remember!

One match in particular will be something Ford tells his grandkids about! That is the historic, the glass ceiling shattering SmackDown Women’s Championship! ROLL TAPE! Sasha Banks VS Bianca Belair, WrestleMania 37 Night One, the main event! Headlines were marking how amazing it was even before the bell, and no one could deny it after! We have a NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion, and it is Bianca Belair! Dawkins has the feels, fam! Ford says that as we just saw, the party isn’t over! The champagne for the campaign is not done popping. Saturday, that was a genuine moment that will be with them for the rest of their lives. And they just want to share that joy with the fans!

So they introduce to use, the roughest, the toughest, the quickest, the strongest, and the greatest part of Ford’s life, the NEW WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, the EST, no no no, THE E S T of the W W E, BIANCA BELAIR!! Bianca makes her entrance, Ford and Dawkins sing her praises and the fans cheer on their ThunderDome screens! Bianca is handed a mic, and she feels like he’s been floating since Saturday! Her mind is blown, her heart is filled, and she feels blessed. But despite the setbacks, the struggles, she never stopped believing that this moment was possible.

And her family has been making history for generations, they are the ones who showed her that when you demand greatness from yourself, that no matter how hard the game gets, you can change the game! If you were to have asked her a year ago if she could ever imagine main-eventing Mania, winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship… Well she probably would’ve said yes! But that’s not because she’s cocky. That’s because she’s unapologetically her. Everyone has a little EST in them, and when you find it, you know that you’re talented and working hard, you never need to apologize for saying you are the B-E-S-T! “Because if you can dream it, you can do it.”

Bianca showed up, showed out, but it isn’t just about her. Sasha Banks, Bianca thanks you. There is no one she would’ve rather shared that spotlight because Sasha pushed her to her limits and it takes two. They BOTH made history. But… If Sasha ever tries to forget it, just know that Bianca left you with something to remember her by. That hair whip did leave a mark… But this is also about Sasha, too. This moment is so much bigger than them. This is about all the girls watching at Raymond James and at home, who saw Bianca and saw themselves. This is for you! That was Mania magic, but we’re only getting started!

Ford and Bianca hug, Dawkins joins in for a family moment, and Bianca says it’s time to drop the cups, throw the tissues away, and get those titles again. They only wear gold in this house. The Profits and the new SmackDown Women’s Champion are up, and #WeWantTheSmoke! Will this trio become truly golden after tonight?

 

Backstage interview with Sasha Banks.

After seeing Bianca out there, she is in no mood. The Boss still has the mark on her side, and she seethes. She takes a second to cool off, but it doesn’t work, and she storms off. Will Sasha find a way back to that title and to WrestleMania revenge?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley.

The Role Model acknowledges that Cesaro was super impressive with the UFO spin, as footage is replayed, but what about Sasha? She probably wants a rematch but is so angry she can’t say it. While Bayley was super busy trying to save both nights of Mania, Bianca was in the main event crying. Even before the match began! No one wants to say it but Bayley will: those tears was because Bianca thought she couldn’t win. Is that who you want as champion? And now she’s showboating and arrogant! That is NOT the kind of champion we should want!

So there is only one way to fix this, and restore dignity to the title: for Bayley, the longest reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion ever, to challenge Bianca and take that title! Will Bayley cut Sasha in line and get back to the gold first?

 

SmackDown Tag Team Championships: The Dirty Dawgs VS The Street Profits!

The Show-Off & The Glorious One made it through #WrestleManiaSmackDown and its Fatal 4 Way with these titles, but now they’re 2v2 with Ford & Dawkins! Will takeback season work out for the fam? We find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and the titles are raised. Teams sort out, Ziggler starts with Dawkins and they circle. They feel out the grapple, Ziggler shoots in but Dawkins sprawls then shifts to a waistlock. Ziggler gets the ropebreak, the ref counts but Ziggler elbows free! Ziggler dares Dawkins to get up, then he gets Dawkins only for Dawkins to DECK him! Tag to Ford, the Profits whip Ziggler, Dawkins drops and Ford dropkicks Ziggler down! Cover, TWO! Ford gets Ziggler back up, snapmares him to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Ford keeps Ziggler from Roode, wrenches and armlocks to tag in Dawkins. Ford wrenches the arm again and again, Dawkins drops ax handles!

Dawkins wrenches, tags Ford back in, and now Ford drops ax handles! Ford mocks Roode but Ziggler ROCKS Ford! Roode tags in but Ford reverses the whip to send Ziggler into Roode! Tag to Dawkins, the Profits double whip to DOUBLE FLAPJACK! Ziggler comes in, but gets a DOUBLE FLAPJACK onto Roode! Ford throws Ziggler out, Dawkins gives Roode the CYCLONE SPLASH! Dawkins keeps moving, BULLDOG! Then a BIG shoulder tackle! The Profits are fired WAY up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Dawkins covers Roode, TWO! Dawkins keeps on Roode with a headlock, Roode powers out but Dawkins runs him over! Things keep moving, Dawkins leaping back elbows! Roode avoids the cyclone but Dawkins elbows him away. Ziggler distracts but Dawkins DECKS him, only to run into a GLORIOUS SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler tags in and DECKS Ford! Ziggler gets Dawkins up for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler tags Roode back in, the Dirty Dawgs mug Dawkins and Roode stomps Dawkins down. Roode brings Dawkins up to suplex high and hard, covers, TWO! Roode argues the count but it was fair.

Tag to Ziggler, the Dawgs mug Dawkins, and Ziggler taunts Ford before daring Dawkins to stand. Dawkins gets up, Ziggler slaps him around, but his dropkick is caught for a CATAPULT! Ziggler hits buckle and then the mat! Ford fires up on his corner and fans rally on the ThunderDome screens. Ziggler and Dawkins crawl, hot tags to Ford and Roode! Ford rallies with big clotheslines, then he TOSSES Ziggler for good measure! Dropkick for Roode, dropkick for Ziggler! Ford dodges Roode to BLOCKBUSTER! Ford CLOBBERS Ziggler! Ford whips Roode, Roode reverses and reels For din but Ford lands out of the back suplex to give a back suplex! Kip up and STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!

Roode bails out to join Ziggler, Ford has a target! Ford builds speed, tags Dawkins as he FLIES! Direct hit to the Dawgs and Ford gets Roode in for Dawkins! Dawkins gets Roode up, THE ANOINTMENT! Tag to Ford, he climbs, and leaps FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, Ziggler breaks it!! Dawkins gets Ziggler up but Ziggler throws him to clothesline Dawkins and himself out! Ford DECKS Ziggler, gets Roode up and fires off fists in a corner! The ref backs Ford off, and Ziggler sneaks a tag in! Ford doesn’t know, he whips but Roode reverses. Ford goes up and over, into a ZIGZAG!!! Cover, the Dawgs win!!

Winners: The Dirty Dawgs, by pinfall

As fired up as Ford was, Ziggler & Roode find a way to survive! Is this the end of takeback season? Will the Dawgs move on to new challengers in the wake of WrestleMania?

 

Backstage interview with Cesaro.

While denying him a match with Roman Reigns, Heyman said some rather derogatory things about Cesaro. His response? “I think Paul Heyman is right.” Cesaro admits he has buck teeth, a slack jaw, and that he isn’t the smartest. And with his long arms, maybe he does look like a Neanderthal. But he’s wrong about one thing: Cesaro DOES belong in the ring with Roman Reigns, and will prove it tonight by beating the Right Hand Man!

 

Heyman talks with Roman in their VIP room.

Roman doesn’t like that Cesaro isn’t just accepting things. Roman wants Jey to teach him a lesson. Will Jey Uso check Cesaro off the list for Roman?

 

Natalya w/ Tamina VS Shayna Baszler w/ Nia Jax!

Though the #BOAT and Daughter of Superfly won the Tag Team Turmoil, they could not win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Can the Queen of Harts redeem herself with another win over the Queen of Spades?

The bell rings, the two tie up and Natty gets a headlock. Shayna powers out, things speed up and Natty ducks to get a waistlock. Shayna blocks the lift, wrenches free and fires off hands and kicks! Shayna knees but Natty deflects it to get the legs! Natty steps through, but Shayna scramble’s and Nia saves her! Tamina storms over, Shayna gets back in the ring, but Natty is waiting! They tie up, Natty trips Shayna, floats to a facelock, but Shayna slips out to hammerlock. Natty gets up, slips through, wrenches, but Shayna wrenches back. Natty rolls, handsprings and gets a leg. Shayna sprawls to block, then shifts to a waistlock and slam, to the ARMBAR!

Natty endures, clasps hands, but Shayna pulls. Shayna stands to get the arm and hammerlocks it into the mat! This time, Tamina says Natty! Natty hotshots Shayna down, Nia storms over and the ref has to keep her and Tamina from throwing down. Natty gets in but Shayna KNEES Her down! Cover, TWO! Shayna grows frustrated, Natty goes to a corner and she elbows Shayna away. Natty spins, DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! Natty goes for legs but Nia gets on the apron! The ref reprimands but Shayna KICKS Natty down! KIRAFUDA, but Natty throws Shayna at Nia! Shayna stops herself, Natty rolls her up, AND WINS!

Winner: Natalya, by pinfall

Nia goes after Natty but Tamina SUPERKICKS her down!! Tamina and Natty aren’t done with the Irresistible Force or Queen of Spades! Will the second time around be the second generation superstars’ time to shine?

 

Jey Uso speaks.

“Cesaro, Cesaro. Boy, you’s a one hit move, huh? King of spin, king of swing, it’s all the same! That’s a cute airplane you did with no hands. But let me ask you something: can you do that with no teeth?!” You’re disrespecting the Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table! Now you’ve crossed the Right Hand Man, and now Jey has to get you! He’ll show you why he is #MainEventJey! Jey vows to #GETIM, and Roman says, “You heard the man. Now he’s gonna show you.”

 

Cesaro VS Jey Uso w/ Paul Heyman!

The Swiss Cyborg shows no fear in the face of the Reigns-ing, Defending, Undisputed, (hardly) Uncontroverted Universal Champion, but the NEW winner of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal wants to change that. Will Jey be the one to learn something from the original winner of that match?

The bell rings and Cesaro gets Jey right up with a SLAM! Cesaro headlocks, Jey powers out and things speed up, and Cesaro catches Jey for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Cesaro keeps his focus as Jey goes to the apron. Jey gets to a corner but Cesaro bumps him off buckles. Jey counter punches, SLAMS Cesaro’s hand on the crossbar, then pulls the arm through the bars! Jey then kicks, but Cesaro blocks to hotshot the leg! Cesaro BOOTS Jey down and then goes out to pursue. Cesaro leaps from the apron, into a SUPERKICK! Main Event Jey evens things in the main event as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns once more and Jey cranks on an armlock. Cesaro throws body shots, whips but Jey reverses, to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Jey keeps on Cesaro with a stomp to the shoulder! Jey ROCKS Cesaro with an uppercut, then wraps an arm around the ropes to pull! The ref counts, Jey lets off at 4, and then brings Cesaro around to suplex. Cesaro blocks it, then gets Jey up for a suplex of his own! Fans rally on their screens as Jey crawls his way to a corner. Cesaro snarls, aims at Jey and runs in, only to be put on the apron. Cesaro ROCKS Jey first, climbs up top, and leaps for a BIG CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Cesaro shakes out the arms, drags Jey back up, but Jey wrenches to WRING the arm out! SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Cesaro survives but he is in a daze as he gets to a corner. Jey runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! Cover, TWO! Cesaro shakes out the arms again but Jey sees him in a drop zone. Jey climbs up, but Cesaro gets up to DROPKICK Jey down! Jey hangs on to keep from falling to the floor, but Cesaro climbs up to get him. Cesaro gets Jey back to the top, Jey fights with body shots and Cesaro hops down. EuroUpper SHORYUKEN! Cesaro gets Jey up for a SUPER GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Jey survives but Cesaro keeps focus.

Jey crawls, Cesaro brings him around, and reels him in! Jey fights the Gotch to wring the arm but Cesaro cartwheels! Cesaro dodges to springboard EuroUpper! Cover, TWO! Cesaro is a bit surprised, but he gets Jey’s legs! Jey kicks Cesaro away, but Cesaro comes back. Jey blocks a boot but gets a EuroUpper! Jey ducks the clothesline to pop-up NECKBREAKER!! Cover, TWO!! Cesaro survives and Jey is furious! Both men slowly rise but Jey is after Cesaro first. Jey throws down haymakers, then SLAPS Cesaro! And slaps him more! Cesaro SLAPS back! And fires off furious palm strikes then furious EuroUppers!! Shots from all sides! Cesaro runs, and LARIATS! Cover, TWO!

Cesaro is seething, but he calls for the spin! Cesaro gets Jey into a SPINEBUSTER, to then get the wings! SWISS SWING!! Michael Cole & Pat McAfee count, but Cesaro doesn’t get past 5 before SETH ROLLINS attacks!!

Winner: Cesaro, by disqualification

The Architect won’t let it go! He doesn’t want anyone anywhere getting swung by Cesaro! Cesaro still wins the match because of this, but he is staggering about. Rollins shouts, “You were done with me?! You got lucky!! ONE TIME! This isn’t over! Nothing is over until I SAY IT’S OVER!! I am the END ALL BE ALL of this industry! And the sooner you figure it out, the better it’s gonna be!” The Savior of SmackDown has all but snapped, but will he be going for another spin before this is all said and done?


My Thoughts:

Well, this was a pretty good post WrestleMania episode. Then some stuff made it like most typical WWE programming. There are a few things that are clearly being set up for WrestleMania Backlash, and they’re all WrestleMania rematches because that’s literally what that PPV becomes when you name it that in such a lazy manner. I am glad Cesaro is the next one stepping up to Roman Reigns, but they’re clearly doing everything they can to stretch this story so that the match will happen at a PPV bigger than Backlash. Cesaro getting the runaround from Roman’s team was a good way to do it, but I’m not sure about Cesaro VS Rollins 2. It’ll be a great match, but is it really necessary? Of course, WWE did repeat the UFO airplane spin a lot, so them running it into the ground is actually a good sign that Cesaro will win, and is going to be the next challenger to Roman’s title.

Natty getting another fairly quick win over Shayna and Tamina knocking Nia down is surely a sign that we’re getting a rematch between those teams for the tag titles at Backlash. But if that is where Tamina & Natty are going to win the titles, it’s profoundly stupid. They should’ve just let Natty & Tamina win at Mania, and then it’d be about Nia & Shayna getting the belts back at Backlash, a much more logical route. The celebration promo for Bianca was great, and while Sasha wants a rematch, Bayley wants her own match with Bianca, so I’m hoping there’s a difference here in that Backlash gives us another Sasha VS Bayley match, winner faces Bianca at the PPV after that.

Dawgs VS Profits was a great match, especially for television, but I am really surprised the Profits didn’t win tonight. I get that the moment Bianca and the Profits are all wearing gold is going to be big, but then why not do that on the SmackDown After Mania? Make tonight feel big because it should be big! Is WrestleMania Backlash really going to be where they do it? I feel like that’s them forcing Backlash to feel special rather than letting it be special by surprise. Rey VS Otis was good, and clearly this feud isn’t over yet, and the winner of that will surely line up for the tag titles.

Kevin VS Sami tonight was also great stuff, a lot of similar spots to the match they had at Mania, but the count-out seems like another way to extend things. I have a feeling something’s gotta give at Backlash, and I hope Kevin & Sami finally start towards the tag titles. Apollo had a good promo to introduce Dabba-Kato’s new form, Commander Azeez, and the name of his finisher. The Nigerian Nail is pretty much a direct translation of the Samoan Spike, which is what the move was when Umaga used it. Big E VS Azeez has to be coming, perhaps with the stipulation that if Big E wins, he gets his rematch with Apollo at Backlash. Honestly, it all feels like WWE is spinning their wheels because Vince is rolling around in the $1 BILLION from NBC.

My Score: 8.2/10

Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley are in Washington D.C. and headed to the ring! And they’re feeling great after what they did to Rey & Dominik Mysterio just last week. They all get mics while fans boo, but Rhea says, “The Judgement Day… We run Monday Night Raw. And that’s been the harsh reality to the Mysterios week in and week out. I even proved to Dominik Mysterio that I really am his Papi, haha, as I destroyed his soul!” Finn says everyone loves the Mysterios! But do they even know why? No! But then to those fans, Finn has some sad news: The Mysterios will NOT be here tonight.

And why is that? Because just like Rhea said, poor little Dom had his soul crushed! And Rey was destroyed by Finn in the middle of the ring, 1-2-3, to further solidify Finn’s already legendary status in this business! But enough about last week, here’s what Priest will do to Edge next week. “What won’t I do to Edge next week? But let me ask you all a question: Do you not wanna see Edge confront the Judgement Day right now?” DC says yes! Do they wanna see the Rated R Superstar right now? Yes! Too bad! He ain’t here! HA! No, no. Edge is out in Toronto, doing his “duties” promoting this match. Edge’s first match in Toronto in over a decade!

Priest tells Edge the he heard everything Edge said. Priest doesn’t need the Judgement Day ringside. He doesn’t sweat Edge! He doesn’t need anyone to deal with Edge! That is where Priest puts the final nail in the coffin of Edge’s career! There will be no Finn, no Rhea, just Priest VS Edge, 1v1, man to man, no Judgement Day! And then Toronto will no longer be Edge’s hometown. It’ll be the place where Damian Priest sent Edge back into retirement! Oh, the fans don’t like that, huh? Bye-bye, Edge! And this time it won’t be about filming TV shows or crap movies. It’ll be Beth wheeling Edge around and feeding him through a tube for the rest of his life!

But then REY dropkicks Priest from behind! And throws hands on Finn! Finn shoves Rey but Rey RANAS him out! Then BLASTS Priest out! But then Rhea steps to him! Rhea dares Rey to hit her, but Rey keeps control. But then Finn gets in with a chair! Rey SHOTGUNS Finn first! And then JAMS Finn and SMACKS Finn with the chair! And then the same for Priest! Fans fire up for Rey as he raises the chair, but Rhea shields Finn! Then she snatches the chair! Priest BOOTS Rey down! Priest KICKS Rey, rains down fists, and fans boo! But Priest drags Rey up, feeds him to Rhea, DDT to the chair!! Then Priest rains down fists!

Rhea tells this is what happens when Dom holds you back! Priest puts the chair on Rey’s chest! Finn is up top, COUP DE GRACE with the chair!! Finn sits on Rey after having crushed him! Will the Judgement Day destroy Edge just like they have Dom and Rey?

Backstage interview with (Austin) Theory!

The Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank is back after the… less than successful attempt to cash-in at SummerSlam. Uh, well, he still has the briefcase, doesn’t he? And he’s still the Youngest WWE United States Champion Ever, and the handpicked future of the business! He may have made some miscalculations, but he doesn’t make mistakes. He is tougher because of that, wiser because of that, and he’s more dangerous because of that. Next time he- Dolph Ziggler walks in to say, “The next time? Kid, I’ve been watching you. You got crushed out there. Brock, Roman, you name it! And I get it, I’ve been there, too.”

But there’s a difference between the two of them. See, the MITB contract was never handed to Ziggler. He earned it. That is why it mattered when he cashed in and became World Heavyweight Champion! Well, that’s interesting. Ziggler was Mr. MITB, he was a world champion. And that’s great, really. But he won’t be around when Theory cashes in, and because of that, Theory thinks Ziggler’s nothing more than “an over the hill, title having has-been.” But Theory suggests Ziggler keeps paying attention to Mr. All Day. Because when Theory cashes in successfully, he’ll just keep winning and winning and winning. And he won’t screw up like Ziggler did!

Oh, didn’t like that, huh? But then Ziggler PUNCHES Theory! They brawl, and end up hitting the cameraman! Will these two have to settle this thing in the ring?

Raw shares footage of the brawl during the break, and they ended up deep in the arena! Officials rushed in to stop this, but… Who’s arm is that slipping in through the door?

 

Backstage interview with The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa.

Sarah says after an amazing performance against Bobby Lashley, where he came so close to winning the United States Championship, where does Ciampa see himself going next? Ciampa says he did get really close. Unfortunately, there are no participation trophies here. Ciampa came to Raw to become a champion, so the next time he gets an opportunity, that is what he is going to do. The Miz says to be honest, the only reason Ciampa didn’t win is because Styles interfered! And how is Styles repaid? He’s given a US Championship match tonight! That’s collusion!

But Miz will reward Ciampa for his valiant effort with a token of appreciation. Miz made his own custom polaroid NFT necklace. He and Ciampa have a matching pair! This is awesome! “No, we are AWWWWWESOOOOME!” The Hollywood A-Lister and his Guardian Psycho now head to the ring. Will they start on the road to tag title opportunities together? Or will they end up a stepping stone for their opponents?

The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa VS Cedric Alexander & Mustafa Ali!

The teams sort out and Alexander starts against Ciampa. They tie up, go around, and Ciampa pulls Alexander’s hair to put him on ropes. The ref counts., Ciampa lets off, and Alexander gets away. They tie up again, Ciampa headlocks, but Alexander powers out. Ciampa pulls hair to reel Alexander back in! Fans taunt Miz over his “TINY BALLS!” but Ciampa snapmares into a chinlock. Alexander slips out, hammerlocks an arm, and he leans on the hold. Ciampa fights up, reaches back to snapmare free, but Alexander slips out of the chinlock again! Alexander has the hammerlock, talks some smack on Miz, but Ciampa fights up.

Ciampa throws a hard elbow, then he clamps on the headlock for a takeover. Alexander keeps his shoulders up, fights up, and fans rally. Alexander powers up and out, but Ciampa runs him over! Things speed up, Ciampa slides under the hurdle but Alexander rolls off the back drop to DROPKICK Ciampa down! Tag to Ali, Alexander trips Ciampa for Ali’s slingshot senton! Tag back to Alexander and he slingshot sentons! Cover, TWO! Alexander drags Ciampa up, CHOPS him against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Ciampa reverses but Alexander kicks back! But Miz grabs at Alexander! Alexander DECKS Miz, dodges Ciampa, but handsprings onto a dropkick!

Miz and Ciampa applaud and pat themselves on the back while fans boo, but this new “Must-See Duo” are on top while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns as Miz fires off It Kicks on Alexander in the corner. Tag to Ciampa, he whips Miz in to A-LIST LARIAT! Then feed to Ciampa’s LARIAT, cover, TWO!! Alexander survives that combo but Ciampa clamps on a bulldog headlock! Fans rally up as Alexander endures and fights up. Ciampa swings but misses, Alexander fires off hands but Ciampa ROCKS him! Ciampa reels Alexander in, but Alexander suplexes first! Fans fire up and Alexander crawls over, but so does Ciampa, hot tags to Miz and Ali! Ali dodges, fires off CHOP after CHOP, then whips corner to corner. Miz reverses but Ali uses it to SHOTGUN Ciampa!

Ali slips out, ROUNDHOUSES Miz then slingshots and NECKBREAKERS on Miz! Cover, TWO! Ali drags Miz up but Miz YANKS him into ropes!

Winners: The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa, by pinfall

WHOA! Miz has a bloody nose but he and Ciampa are the ones standing tall! Will it be a Fairy Tale Ending for the Hollywood A-Lister and his new co-star?

 

Ezekiel’s family responds to Kevin Owens’ brutal assault.

Not just Elias and Elrod, but their mother, father, and kid brother, too! Ernie Jr, says if he ever gets his hands on Kevin, he will get a piece of his mind!

 

Drew McIntyre heads to gorilla.

But as he does, someone is putting out a fire! Is that the work of Dexter Lumis…?

 

Drew McIntyre heads to the ring!

The Scottish Warrior may be part of SmackDown, but he’s here on Raw because Clash at the Castle is coming! And if McIntyre wins, he’ll be able to show up on Raw all he wants! For now, McIntyre gets a mic to say, “Washington, let me hear ya scream!” Fans shout for McIntyre and he says, “I know it’s a shock to see Drew McIntyre on Raw. I’m technically on Friday Night SmackDown. It might be even more shocking to see the other guy here on Raw, but that’s something we can rectify in less than three weeks’ time. Because at Clash at the Castle, it’s Drew McIntyre VS Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Championship.”

To finish McIntyre’s thoughts from Friday, this isn’t a match that happens on the fictional Island of Relevancy! It’s taking place on DREW’S island! And he is gonna drop Roman’s ass, win those titles, and then show up on Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, the live events, everywhere the titles should be because that is what the fans and those titles deserve! And he knows there are reports that McIntyre is suffering from a back injury. To be honest, yes, it is true. Because he’s been carrying the load of 20 men for three years in the WWE, in the ring and outside it!

And he does it with a smile on his face because it is a PRIVILEGE. This isn’t a job, it’s a DREAM! That’s why he’s hereon his day off! McIntyre is here on Raw to scout the future opponents he’ll have! Wanna hear some potential ones? McIntyre VS Tommaso Ciampa! McIntyre VS AJ Styles! McIntyre VS Seth Freakin’ Rollins! McIntyre VS Karrion Kross! But here comes Kevin Owens! Kevin has a mic and McIntyre says he likes this idea, too! McIntyre VS KO! Kevin says it is so convenient that McIntyre says his name now.

But there is something about Drew that Kevin never understood. As big and good and strong as McIntyre is, he still feels the need to pretend he’s something he’s not. Because he comes out here, talks with his big, loud almost comical voice! Sometimes he has his kilt, sometimes he has a sword. He thinks this is Medieval Times? But McIntyre is delusional because if he thinks he’s been carrying anyone’s weight around here, he’s a real dumbass! Kevin says McIntyre has no idea who he really is! Kevin’s been the same person his entire 22 years of wrestling! He is and always will be Kevin Owens, who is as real as it gets in this business!

But these past few years, people have forgotten what Kevin’s about! That’s Kevin’s fault, though> he’s been having a good time, having fun coming to work. But then something dawned on Kevin when he got here today. He got goosebumps because he realized that this is the very same arena where at Battleground, Kevin and Sami Zayn had the fight of their lives and left everything they had in that ring! They gave people a match they STILL talk about six years later! And then Kevin realized there’s a side of him that’s been missing for far too long. He misses that side. He misses the old Kevin Owens. He needs to bring back the Prizefighter!

And Drew, Kevin hasn’t held a title in five long YEARS. But enough is enough, and it is time for a change! Now, Kevin is coming after everything! Every champion is a target! The US Champion, the Intercontinental Champion, the Tag Team Champions, and Drew, Kevin doesn’t care if it’s you or Roman. Whoever walks out of Cardiff has a hell of a problem, because Kevin wants the biggest prize of them all! The Undisputed WWE Universal Championship!! Fans cheer that, and McIntyre says okay, he let Kevin say his piece. And frankly, McIntyre will have to respond. McIntyre is sick of people making stuff up juts to get a reaction.

They say things like McIntyre doesn’t carry the load, he doesn’t know who he is. He knows exactly who he is, too!! Someone mocked him for being “The Chosen One.” That was 15 YEARS AGO!! Then he got FIRED, and had to work his ass off, earn his way back off! He didn’t call the WWE, they called him! And he’s worked his ass off ever since! A two-time world champion! He beat Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Randy Orton and everyone who has stood in his path! Don’t you dare pull this BS again!! Now, it’s time for Kevin and McIntyre to stop talking. Prizefighter, sports entertainer, superstar, they’re wrestlers in a wrestling ring, so let’s just freakin’ wrestle!!

Fans are thunderous and Kevin tells McIntyre that he may not be a prize, but he’s still on! Kevin and McIntyre, a preview of coming attractions, who will win this fight?

McIntyre barely kicks out so Kevin goes right back up! SWNTON BOMB hits this time! Cover, TWO!!! McIntyre survives again!

Turns out McIntyre gets the last word! Will the Scottish Warrior rip the Tribal Chief off the throne at Clash at the Castle?

 

Seth Rollins is here!

The Visionary promised he’d be here to hear from Matt Riddle just like the rest of us, but what will Rollins have to say about what Riddle has to say? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Rollins has a mic. “I am a Visionary. I am a revolutionary. I am Seth! Freakin’! Rollins! HAHAHA! And I am excited because the time has finally come.” Riddle is getting mic’d up in his mom’s basement via satellite, and he’s about to give us his “big news.” So Rollins came out here for a front row seat so we can all celebrate together, when finally, for the first time in his life, Riddle does the smart thing and tells the entire world that he is retiring! HAHAHAAA! Don’t boo! This is cause for celebration. Riddle can do whatever he wants. He can go back to middle school and finish the seventh grade.

Riddle can start a farm! That industry is very lucrative these days. Riddle says he’s glad Rollins is out there so fans can see what a slimy piece of trash he is! But Riddle doe shave a medical update about his condition. Well here it is! The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Rollins knows this is very difficult for Riddle, so the fans need to be respectful. Riddle, please continue. Riddle says it is a bit hard to say this… But he’s MEDICALLY CLEARED! So the next time Riddle sees Rollins, it is on! Oh, okay, it’s on, huh? Next time they see each other. Like at Madison Square Garden? Or SummerSlam?

Because it seems to Rollins that any time they’re in the same place at the same time, the outcome is the same: Rollins stomping Riddle into the mat! And does Riddle know why that is? Because Rollins is always one, two, three steps ahead! Rollins wishes Riddle was here right now because Rollins would love nothing more than to stomp those last few brain cells out of Riddle’s stupid, stompable head! Well glad you feel that way, Rollins. Because Riddle is NOT in his mom’s basement. He is here in DC and the arena! SO he’ll head to the ring to kick Rollins’ ass!! Riddle is rushing to gorilla, here he comes! And then down the ramp!

Riddle slides in but slides out to avoid the stomp! He drag Rollins out and fire off hands! Fans fire up, Rollins RAMS Riddle into barriers but runs away. Riddle pursues to fire off KICK after KICK after KICK! Then a BROSPLODER! Rollins bails out, Riddle goes to the apron but Rollins trips him up! Riddle crashes down hard, and Rollins drags him back up to TOSS over the desk! Rollins rains down fists, clears off the desk, and then he drags Riddle onto it! “How stupid are you!? How stupid are you?!” Rollins CLUBS Riddle, then climbs up onto the desk! CURB- NO, Riddle dodges! Rollins falls over, Riddle KNEES him into the crowd!

Riddle then pursues, and they run up the bleachers! The fans cheer Riddle on as he runs Rollins off! But will Rollins have no choice but to take The Stallion on soon enough?

 

Backstage interview with Riddle.

Kevin Patrick says Riddle returned for the first time since Rollins’ SumemrSlam attack. Riddle knows all that, KP, but tonight was just a taste. Riddle is issuing a challenge! Rollins: Clash at the Castle! Be there! Will the Bro get to burn it down with the Architect in Cardiff?

Beaux staggers, into a FLYING THESZ PRESS!

Veer growls and stomps around, for the MILLION DOLLAR LARIAT! Beaux flounders, but Veer HIP DROPS, into the CERVICAL CLUTCH!! Beaux taps, Veer wins!

Winner: Veer Mahaan, by pinfall

Another battle, another win as another mere mortal falls prey to Veer Mahaan! Will even champions begin to #FearVeer?

 

Backstage interview with Dakota Kai, Bayley & Iyo Sky.

What can we expect from Kai’s first singles match here on Raw? Uh, Sarah, if you’ve been paying attention, you don’t need to ask that. Then for clarification, can she elaborate? Ugh, Bayley can’t believe this. For all the idiots out there, and for “clarification’s sake,” just please tell them. How is this: spoiler alert, she’ll win! That good enough? Sky says in Japanese and Bayley translates into English, you can expect them all to do a lot more winning when these two become the NEW WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions! And that means first, they beat Alexa & Asuka next week, and again at Clash at the Castle.

Kai then spots something and walks over. “Hey! Relax. We’re not here to ambush you,” Dana, Kai just wants to make sure she’s ready. Oh, Dana’s ready. She is ready 24/7! And if these three are trying to intimidate her, she is NOT afraid of them. Kai says fear is a motivator. Maybe Dana should be afraid. Kai, Sky & Bayley head out, but will #CobraKai sink her teeth into the Flex Appeal?

 

WWE United States Championship: Bobby Lashley VS AJ Styles!

Though they’ve battled in a tag team match, back when MVP was on the All Mighty’s side and the Nigerian Giant was on the Phenomenal One’s team, this is the first-ever 1v1 battle between these two icons! Who wins this dream match to say they are truly phenomenal?

Styles drags Lashley around to drop an elbow on the leg! And another! Fans duel as Styles kicks the leg and paces around. Styles drags Lashley up, bumps him off buckles, but Lashley scoops and SLAMS Styles! Lashley drags Styles up now, throws him out of the ring, but Styles lands on his feet! Styles gets in as Lashley slides out, and Styles dropkicks Lashley away! Then slingshots, but has to bail out as Lashley moves! Lashley then fireman’s carries Styles to run, but Styles slips off! Lashley stops from hitting the post and he elbows Styles away. But Styles gets up on the apron to SLIDING KNEE! And then FLYING FOREARM!

Fans fire up as Lashley goes down! Both men are on the outside, catching their breath, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Styles has Lashley in the corner again. Styles whips him corner to corner but Lashley reverses. Styles slides into the POST! Styles writhes but Lashley leaves him outside the ring as the count climbs. But then Lashley goes out at 5 of 10 to RAM Styles into the barriers! And then TOSS him into more barriers! Styles almost falls into the timekeeper’s area, but Lashley drags him up to RAM him! Lashley gets in the ring at 7 of 10 to refresh the count. He then goes back to get Styles and put him in the ring.

Styles falls down, but here come Miz and Ciampa! Fans boo but Lashley drags Styles up. Lashley whips Styles corner to corner hard and Styles bounces off off buckles! Miz & Ciampa are ringside and Lashley glares at them. Fans taunt Miz over his “TINY BALLS! TINY BALLS!” but Ciampa covers Miz’s ears to tune that out.

The Youngest Mr. MITB Ever may have missed his opportunity at SummerSlam, but there’s always Clash at the Castle! Will Theory show the Showoff that Theory is the future? Or will Ziggler show Theory that he still has much to learn in the present?

Fans boo but Theory just takes a victory selfie! Will the Youngest Mr. MITB continue to upset everyone as he continues to pull out victories?


My Thoughts:

Another great Raw, though I am curious as to what we got as the main event. Ziggler VS Theory was a great match, but I did not expect that to be what closes the show with how red hot a lot of other stories have been going. I did like that during the brawl between Theory and Ziggler that Lumis’ arm was in that doorway. It doesn’t outright indicate Lumis and Theory will reunite under The Way, but it doesn’t eliminate that possibility. And it seems Lumis is obsessed with AJ Styles. Lashley VS Styles was a great match, even with Miz & Ciampa showing up, but Lumis shows up at the end of another AJ Styles match, so Styles VS Lumis might be the feud after Clash at the Castle.

Miz & Ciampa also had a very good match against Alexander & Ali, and with Ciampa saying he will seize his next title opportunity, I wonder if Miz & Ciampa will help fill out the tag division for a moment since Usos cleared out quite a few other teams. And of course the Usos showed up to go after McIntyre. McIntyre and Kevin Owens had an awesome promo segment, and awesome match, but then the Usos had to “ruin” it. But McIntyre stands tall tonight, so who knows how heated it’ll get this Friday on SmackDown.

And while Kevin is returning to his old self, he also seems to have the added gimmick of claiming no one else knows who they are. I hope he gets to cut a promo on the entire Elias/Ezekiel family. I busted up at that picture they had of the whole family. I hope we get a Nutty Professor: Meet the Klumps kind of promo. Then, like Omos did before, Veer returned to do another squash match just so we don’t forget he exists. At this point, why not have those two guys interact. Omos VS Veer would be really tricky, though, because one of those monsters has to lose. A team of them would also be hard because how would the Usos survive them? At the very least, HHH should probably move one of them over to SmackDown so there’s more space for both of them.

Dakota also squashed Dana to kinda make a point that “The Control” (still not canonically named on TV) are higher up on the card. And we haven’t gotten any 24/7 Championship shenanigans lately, I wonder what HHH has planned for that title. We got a great opening match from the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament, Asuka & Alexa of course winning to then take on Kai & Sky next round. That is going to be a great match, just on Asuka and Sky finally facing off in the WWE. I would think Kai & Sky win to then win the tag titles before Clash at the Castle, but who knows. If so, I wonder if there’s a possibility of Winners Take All in that Six Woman Tag…

We got a good promo from The Judgement Day, and a pretty good brawl with Rey Mysterio, but of course Rey loses when it’s 3v1. I wonder if the Raw in Toronto will help push things towards Edge & Rey VS Judgement Day in time for Clash. And it seems Rollins VS Riddle is happening at Clash after not happening at SummerSlam. Rollins and Riddle had a great promo and a great brawl, they should have an almost show-stealing match.

My Score: 8.5/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

Penelope Ford returns to action in AEW as Dark: Elevation serves the leftovers from Dynamite’s Quake by the Lake!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS T.U.G Cooper, Drew System, Rylie Jackson & Adam Grace; The Dark Order wins.
  • Serena Deeb VS Sierra; Deeb wins.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS Cezar Bononi; Konosuke wins.
  • Julia Hart VS Free-Range Kara; Julia wins.
  • Private Party VS JAH-C & JDX; Private Party wins.
  • Penelope Ford VS Heather Reckless; Ford wins.
  • The Acclaimed VS Justin Fowler & JT Energy; The Acclaimed win.
  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.
