Raquel tells Ember she’s next, after this GORILLA PRESS BARRIER SNAKE EYES!! Big Mami Cool says it doesn’t matter, those tag titles are still coming home to her and Dakota! Will Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell make sure they stay far away from Raquel & Dakota?

 

Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher speak.

“Take two steps forward, one step back. Such is life.” But the second they called out MSK, they made a mistake of putting the cart before the horse. “Enter GYV. Clearly, they had different plants for us. A certain grudge. And that’s okay. Because the final destination has many paths.” And now their path runs straight through the Grizzled Young Veterans! So while GYV won round one, Ciampa & Thatcher won round two. And there will be a round three. Ciampa storms off and Thatcher smiles before throwing his chair. “I am gonna enjoy breaking your limbs!!” Will Old Man Ciampa and Toothless Timmy make Liverpool’s Number One and Mr. Mayhem into number two?

 

Bobby Fish VS Pete Dunne w/ Oney Lorcan!

The Infamous One is finally back in action! But while he and Kyle O’Reilly are still good, this is something he has to do alone. Will Fish’s thirst for vengeance be quenched? Or will the Bruiserweight break him apart all over again?

The bell rings and Dunne ducks a kick but not the elbow! Dunne flounders and Fish KNEES him in the corner! But Dunne wrenches an arm, only for Fish to break free and KICK the legs out!

Fish gets Dunn up but Dunne clinches back. Dunne throws knees, Fish gives knees in return! They both give knee back and forth, but Fish gets the edge! Fish backs Dunne into a corner with knee after knee! The ref counts, Fish lets off and Dunne falls in a heap! Fish walks into a trap! SNAP GERMAN! STOMPS to the hands! BUZZSAW!

Oney drags Fish to the corner and puts the bad arm through the apron skirt’s strap! “We’re going to put you on the shelf again, Fish!” Oney stands on Fish’s bad arm to bend it back! Dunne chuckles as Fish suffers! More refs rush out to stop this, and Dunne shrugs. Oney PUNTS Fish’s bad arm!! Oney and Dunne leave while Fish roars in pain! Is Fish already going to be back on the sideline? Or will he not stop until he has satisfaction?

 

Mercedes Martinez speaks.

“Raquel? I took her to her limit. Did I win? Nah. Did I learn from it? Hell yeah, I did. Tonight, it starts. Night one on the road back to the title!” But wait, is Boa lurking just behind her? What does Tian Sha want with Mean Ms. Martinez?

 

NXT hears from Hit Row.

B-Fab says, “Last week… No, every week, we’ve been putting people on notice, and they’ve been mad.” Top Dolla says they need a big bag, and the boys say, “And that’s big facts.” Thankfully, NXT is the land of opportunity. Facts. They’ve been shining, like a light switch, and now they need the gold. Tick-tock, tick-tock. All eyes are on the main event, but Swerve wants us to listen quick: He can’t wait to cross Karrion, or Finn, off his hitlist. And as for MSK and Legado, Hit Row has both of them covered! Slap L’s on their heads like they Mario’s brother! And Adonis sees Kushida, the so-called Time Splitter. Adonis might just split his wig! Hit him so hard, knock him back to the future!

Time’s almost up, and fools like them and Reed thinking Hit Row’s just here to sing songs. Bronson’s colossal, but what’s Godzilla to King Kong? NOT NADA! Talk to ’em, B! This is Hit~ Row~! And if you didn’t know, now you know! Will this fearsome foursome look to top the charts in all of the divisions?

 

Mercedes Martinez VS Zayda Ramier!

She said it herself, she’s back on the road to a title opportunity! But will she hit a road bump against the young star who’s already gotten some major upsets?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally as the two tie up. Mercedes waistlocks and SLAMS Zayda, drops down onto a facelock, and then floats to slap Zayda around.

High stack, TWO!! Zayda survives but Mercedes drags Zayda up to whip. Zayda ducks and dodges to hop up and RANA! A little rough, but Zayda shifts to a sleeper hold! Mercedes fights up to her feet and RAMS Zayda into buckles! Mercedes throws some back elbows, then hoists Zayda up top.

Mercedes ROCKS Zayda, climbs up, but Zayda shoves her away. Mercedes ROCKS Zayda then TOSSES her off the top! RUNNING KNEE! Mercedes isn’t done, she gets Zayda up to a fireman’s carry for the AIR RAID CRASH! Mercedes wins!

Winner: Mercedes Martinez, by pinfall

Zayda put up a fight but it wasn’t enough to derail Mercedes! But wait, the lights go out! And when they come back up, everything’s red, and there’s smoke everywhere, and Mercedes looks to the titantron to see Tian Sha! The Dragon Lady of NXT has marked Mercedes as her prey! Then the lights go back to normal, but Mercedes sees the black paint on her hand! What does Tian Sha have planned for Mercedes’ future?

 

Toni Storm talks with Ted DeBiase!

The Million Dollar Man likes the Lightning From Down Under’s style, and then heads out. The Robert Stone Brand tries to schmooze with him, but he just throws money in their face. Better than nothing! DeBiase laughs while Stone still tries to talk to him. The Million Dollar Face-Off happens after the break!

 

Cameron Grimes heads to the ring!

The Carolina Cash Money Caveman is first out for this Million Dollar Face-Off, but before he can introduce the concept, here comes DeBiase! Grimes is not amused, but DeBiase has the fans on his side. Grimes is sure we all want to know, “Why, man?” Grimes seriously wants to know why. Grimes wasn’t always rich, live this lavish lifestyle and have all this stuff. He starts flaunting it a bit and DeBiase shows up to show him up. DeBiase may not see this, but Grimes looks up to him. Grimes saw that because of DeBiase, money can help you treat people terribly and they’d still like him! Grimes could make kids dribble a basketball and he’d kick it away and the people would still like him!

But maybe it’s true what they say: Never meet your idols. DeBiase says he likes Grimes, he really does. They have more in common than Grimes knows. Would you consider the fact that DeBiase put him through all that hell because he sees a bit of himself in Grimes? And another thing: Why is DeBiase back? He’s here because he is looking for that one person, whoever it might be, that embodies everything the Millions Dollar Legacy stands for! It isn’t all about the money or about humiliating people. It’s also about performing in the ring. That’s right! DeBiase will tell Grimes that he’s got “it!” But here’s another thing: Since Grimes got rich, he’s lost his focus.

But wait! Here comes LA Knight! What does he want with DeBiase and Grimes? LA Knight soaks up the heat and then says, “Let me talk to ya!” Ted, Knight hears about the “legacy” and sees himself a million dollar opportunity! He’s searching and searching but Knight will take that burden off him. This is a man who does get a job done! This is a man who has the undeniable “it,” and this is a man who is a perpetual motion machine of badassery, YEAH. And not just someone who struck it lucky with virtual money, but is personified, walkin’, talkin’ gold! Grimes says Knight needs to stay out of this! This is a conversation of millionaires, not Mr. Nickel ‘n’ Dime!

DeBiase wants Grimes to hold on a moment. Let’s hear Knight out. Fans taunt Knight with “Nickel ‘n’ Dime!” but Knight says no one asked the incels. But Knight says Grimes is right, he’s not a millionaire. But with DeBiase by Knight’s side, they can put that last piece of the puzzle in! You could search high, low and everywhere in between but the answer is the same: Whose game is it? L A Knight! DeBiase knows who Knight is, and that he’s been around the world with a great deal of success. He could be a MEGA STAR here. He has a million dollar body, a million dollar mindset, but-

Grimes stops DeBiase right there! We get it, Knight’s got this, that, shoulders here, there and everywhere! He’s jacked, but he’s not Grimes! This was a Million Dollar Face-Off just between millionaires! So Grimes tells Knight right here and now, “You, get out of this ring, or I’m gonna kick your ass to… the… Moon.” Knight is taken aback but he kicks Grimes and hits the CRAVAT FACEBUSTER! Knight storms off while DeBiase stands over Grimes. “Kid, you’re just never gonna get it, are ya?” DeBiase laughs, but does this mean he’ll pass the torch on to Knight instead of Grimes? Can Grimes redeem himself before it’s too late?

 

Franky Monet finishes in the make-up department.

She heads out, leaving Preston the Pomeranian with his trusted puppysitter. Will Monet put her money where her mouth is and cash in big in her in-ring debut?

 

Backstage interview with Indi Hartwell.

Well, not exactly, as Indi is too busy looking for Dexter Lumis. Congratulations, blah blah blah, where is Dexter?! She interrupts Ever-Rise’s show! What show? She only cares about Dexter! What show?! This is Ever-Rise Live! It sounds like Indi’s got a problem! Does she want to take a swing?! No, she’s just- Drake Maverick walks in and says Indi’s been through enough. If she’s looking for Dexter, Drake last saw him in that room back there. Indi hurries to a darkened room, and calls out his name. The lights turn on, and there are many, many, many pictures, mostly about broken hearts and Indi rejecting Dexter. Indi feels awful for how she treated him, and hurries away! Does #InDex still have a chance?

 

Franky Monet VS Cora Jade!

Finally, after weeks of waiting and wondering, NXT is going to see Franky get in the ring and show what makes #LaWeraLoca big money! Will the debut be worth they hype?

The bell rings, Monet and Jade tie up and Monet puts Jade in a corner. Monet lets off, pats Jade on the shoulder, and they reset. They tie up again, and Monet throws Jade down by her hair! “Do you know who I am?! I am La Wera Loca!” Jade BOOTS Monet! Jade tries to scoop but Monet CLUBS her! Monet stomps Jade to a corner, then CHOPS her down! Monet pulls Jade’s hair and bumps her off buckles, to then go corner to corner for a BLINDSIDE METEORA! Side to side for the HIP ATTACK! Corner to corner again for another METEORA! Monet smiles as she looms over Jade and drags her up. Monet puts Jade against ropes and CHOPS her again!

Fans rally and duel, Monet whips and mule kicks! And KNEES, then LARIATS! Monet grins, drags Jade back up, and taunts Jade more. Jade ROCKS Monet with forearms in return! Jade fires up, whips, but Monet reverses and scoops! Jade tilt-o-whirls through for the RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Monet SPEARS Jade down! Monet is mad now and she gets Jade up for a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! “You wanna play, Cora?!” Monet drags Jade up, chicken wings, GLAM SLAM!! Cover, Monet wins!

Winner: Franky Monet, by pinfall

Beth Phoenix approves of Monet’s power and aggression, will #BougieBad be taking over NXT soon enough?

 

Grizzled Young Veterans speak.

Zack Gibson tells Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher, “Last week, when we cost you a victory, that was nothing personal. That was simply a receipt from some veterans not put you in your place.” James Drakes says before those two get carried away, GYV “didn’t travel halfway across the world for some petty rivalry with some chair throwing hooligans.” They’re here for the tag titles. They’re done with Ciampa & Thatcher, but they’re not done with MSK. The GYV will watch MSK defend those titles against Legado, because the fact remains the same: GYV are the leaders this tag division needs. Not Ciampa & Thatcher, not Legado, and definitely not MSK.

Gibson adds, “If MSK were wrestling at the Garden, I would close the curtains.” They are Grizzled Young Veterans, and they promise they are SSSSSOON to be recognized as the next NXT Tag Team Champions!

 

Imperium does not accept failure!

That is why Alexander Wolfe was purged from the group. His weakness has cost the faction for the last time. Going forward, they will continue to set things straight. It is on Barthel & Aichner to right the first wrong, and that was the loss to Breezango! Those two are showmen, but they are wrestlers! When you stand in that ring against them, they are restoring the honor of their beloved sport! Because the mat is SACRED! Will the Ring General’s orders be carried out?

 

Bronson Reed is here!

The Colossal and NEW NXT North American Champion is back to celebrate his victory inside the Steel Cage! Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” and he thanks them for saying that. “Fourteen years to get here. And it wasn’t an easy road to become the North American Champion. It wasn’t just fourteen years of climbing the mountain. It was fourteen years of falling and getting back up, and climbing the mountain, then falling and getting back up!” He had his doubters, he had the people telling him, “No.” But this win is proof is that you don’t need to take “no” for an answer! You work hard, grind it out, and you can become champion!

Now that Reed has this, good luck trying to take it from him! To anyone in the locker room that things they can get a shot, well, Reed had a big mountain to climb, but they have a Colossal one to climb! But here comes El Legado, led by Santos Escobar! Escobar “applauds” Reed and says bravo! Reed has some telenovela going on! Reed brought tears to his eyes. Escobar mockingly dabs his eyes with tissues. But he has to say, he can’t relate to anything Reed just said. Escobar was born a champion! And not just to belong in this business, but to OWN this business! After Reed’s victory, something caught Escobar’s eye. And it wasn’t the colossal mass in the ring. No, it was the title.

Escobar IS the Emperor of Lucha Libre! He runs the bingo, which is why he took the Cruiserweight Championship. But now he sees the North American Championship, he sees USA and Mexico! Oh wait, what about Canada? Canada doesn’t count, Wilde, we talked about this. But as Escobar was saying, that’s the North American Championship. That means it also belongs to Escobar! So realize now that this little party is over, mate. Escobar is going to do what he does best, and that is take what’s his! But here comes MSK to back Reed up! Wes Lee & Nash Carter even the numbers, and swing on Mendoza! They get Wilde, and DOUBLE SUPERKICK him out!

Escobar slithers in but Reed BODIES him! Escobar bails out, Legado regroups and retreats! Wilde & Mendoza will face MSK soon enough, but will Escobar bite off more than he can chew with Auszilla?

 

William Regal speaks.

“Hello. I’m incredibly excited for tonight’s main event, as Karrion Kross will face Finn Balor for the NXT Championship. But after that match, we’ll need a new #1 contender for the NXT Championship, and I’ve evaluated the NXT roster. And next week, there will be a Triple Threat: Kyle O’Reilly VS Pete Dunne VS Johnny Gargano, and the winner of that match will go on to face the N XT Champion at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.” A huge showdown next week, but who will even be meeting that contender? We’re about to find out!

NXT Championship: Karrion Kross w/ Scarlett Bordeaux VS Finn Balor!

TakeOver: Stand & Deliver was one for the ages, and it was Mr. Doomsday who came out on top. But The Prince says that you only die if you stay down. Will Balor rise back up and take the throne for the third time in NXT? Or has time passed him by, with the apocalypse as the future?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s like a TakeOver on a Tuesday as these two go around again!

Balor and Kross circle, fans rally and duel, and Balor tries testing kicks. Kross stays up so Balor gets a headlock! Kross tries to power out but Balor holds on tight.

Balor headlocks, Kross powers out right away but Balor ducks and dodges to dropkick legs out! Kross bails out and is furious but Scarlett calms him down as NXT goes picture in picture.

Balor waits as Kross paces. Kross goes up the steps while fans rally and duel, and he enters the ring. Balor and Kross circle, Balor gives more kicks, but Kross stays up. Kross shots in, waistlocks and SLAMS Balor, then keeps hold as Balor scrambles around. Balor gets an arm, switches and floats and SPANKS Kross?! Balor is back to pushing Kross’ buttons, though that only did so much at TakeOver. They circle, Balor gives more of those testing kicks, and then he goes after that leg. Kross stays up, shifts around to get Balor’s arm, and drops for an ARMBAR! Balor moves around to make it a cover, TWO as Kross pulls on the hold! Balor keeps moving around but Kross wrangles him down again!

Balor keeps his hands clasped, keeps his shoulders off the mat, and pushes to turn Kross. Balor has the legs laced up, pulls on the hold and adds a chinlock! Kross endures this modified STF, fights up and around, but Balor facelocks. Balor wrenches, uppercuts the arm, then clamps onto the shoulder. Kross endures, Scarlett coaches him, and he fights up to scoop Balor! Balor slips out, is right after the arm and grinds it down again! Kross endures, fights back up, but Balor arm-drags him back down! Balor pulls on the arm, and the fingers! Kross endures, shifts his weight but Balor has the armlock again.

NXT returns to single picture and fans rally. Balor grinds the shoulder, Kross endures and fights up, and he scoops to SLAM Balor this time! Kross takes off the gladiator pleats and bumps Balor’s head off buckles! Kross runs corner to corner to clothesline Balor, then spins around to CLOBBER him! Scarlett loves it but fans are divided as Kross looms over Balor. Kross gets Balor up, snap suplexes, then looms over Balor. Kross stomps down on Balor’s foot and grinds in his heel before he stomps Balor again! Kross clamps on a chinlock, Balor endures and pries at the hold, but Kross stays on tight. Fans rally, Balor fights up and pops out the bottom but Kross CLUBS him down!

Kross DEKCS Balor with a forearm, but holds onto the wrist as he dares Balor to get his ass up. Kross drags Balor up but Balor swings around to get a Cobra Twist! Balor throws elbow after elbow, then drops elbow after elbow as Kross is down! Cover, TWO! Kross grits his teeth and clutches his ribs, but Balor stomps him in the corner! Balor throws body shots, then wrenches the arm to go after the ribs more! Kross headbutts Balor away! Kross RAMS Balor in a corner, turns him around and RAMS into his back! The ref counts, Kross lets off, and BOOTS Balor in the back! Balor writhes, the ref reprimands Kross, but Kross dares Balor to get back up.

Kross stands Balor up to TOSS him across the ring! Kross drags Balor back up and GERMAN SUPLEXES him back the other way! Kross drags Balor up into another waistlock, but Balor wrenches the arm back to the FUJIWARA! Balor wants and gets the CROSSFACE! Kross powers up but Balor fires off shouts into the ribs! Kross blocks the Penalty Kick but Balor makes it a victory roll to DOUBLE STOMPS! Kross gasps for air as he clutches his ribs! The fans are thunderous as Balor runs in and CHOPS Kross! And again! Balor RAMS into Kross now, lets off at 4, but Kross CLOBBERS him from behind!

Kross drags Balor back up, throws him out of the ring, but Balor trips him up at the apron! Kross is in the skirt and Balor fires off! Balor gets on the apron to stomp away on Kross’ head and shoulders! The ref counts, Balor lets off at 4, and Kross gets free of the skirt, for Balor to PENALTY KICK down! Scarlett is worried as NXT goes picture in picture again!

Balor gets back in the ring while Kross winces and stands up slowly. Kross catches his breath but the ring count is climbing. Balor wants to go out after him but the ref stops him. Balor goes out around the side, builds up speed and CLOBBERS Kross against boards! Balor fires off kicks, goes back into the ring just to refresh the count, and then stomps away on Kross against barriers! Balor lets off to throw up a Too Sweet! Balor gets Kross up and into the ring, then aims from a corner. Balor runs, but into Kross’ BOOT! Kross snarls as he stomps Balor’s arms! Kross drives elbows into Balor’s shoulders, then drags him up for another hard snap suplex!

Kross paces, almost toying with Balor as he dares him to get back up. Kross stands Balor up but Balor fires off forearms! Kross NORTHERN LIGHTS, rolls through, and CLOBBERS Balor! Cover, TWO!!

Kross throws Balor out of the ring, then dribbles him into the Plexiglas over and over and over! Kross reels Balor in, and hopes fans are watching as he RAZOR’S EDGE Balor into the boards!! The ring count climbs but Kross puts Balor in at 8! Kross drags Balor back up, reels him back in, and gets Balor up but Balor hits a DDT!! Balor has a third wind as he hurries to a corner! Kross staggers up into a SLINGBLADE! And then Balor clotheslines Kross out of the ring! Balor builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit in front of commentary! The fans are thunderous but Kross stands back up! BACK SUPLEX TO THE DESK!! “This is Awesome!” but the ref says this has to get back in the ring!

Kross takes his time dragging Balor from the desk’s hood and into the ring. Kross waits until 9 of 10 to get in, and Balor fires off on him in the ropes! Kross shoves Balor away but Balor trips him and DOUBLE STOMPS again! Balor aims from a corner, runs and SHOTGUNS Kross into buckles! Kross is in the drop zone and Balor heads up top! Fans are electric as Balor is up top! COUP DE- NO! Kross dodges, gets Balor up and RAMS him into the far corner! And then turns him around for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Kross roars and says it’s done now! Kross hauls Balor back up, reels him in, DOOMSDAY SAIDO! But he isn’t done there, he winds up the hands of time!

Balor slowly rises and Kross aims from a corner. But Balor catches Kross to a victory roll! TWO!! Balor gets around, Cobra Twist! Grounded Twist but Kross keeps off his shoulders! Kross pries free, and rains down forearms! But Balor slips out to rain down forearms on Kross! Balor hits the ribs, the head, the shoulders, over and over! The ref gets Balor to stop to check on Kross! Kross is still conscious but he crawls to Scarlett to focus. Balor puts a SLEEPER on Kross! Kross is holding the ropes, he lets go, and Balor drags him into a body scissors of his own!! Scarlett is furious, Kross is prying free! But Balor makes it a TRIANGLE HOLD!!

Kross moves around, falls on his side, but Scarlett shouts! The ref checks the arm, Kross revives!! Kross powers up, dead lifts and POWERBOMBS Balor!! Balor glares at Kross as he sits up! Fans are electric as both men stand, and Kross CLOBBERS Balor! Then CLUBS him, then DOOMSDAY FOREARM!! Kross stomps away on Balor over and over! The ref counts but Kross stops at 4 to wrap on the KROSSJACKET!! Balor is turning purple! He is OUT, Kross wins!!

Winner: Karrion Kross, by submission (still NXT Champion)

The apocalypse could not be stopped, and Kross still reigns! Balor did not pray but he did fall, is this the last time he’ll be fighting for this title? And with Kross’ path to TakeOver cleared, who will he be facing In Your House?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode for NXT! I nailed the order of the matches, other than Mercedes VS Zayda since that wasn’t advertised. Speaking of which, Mercedes was of course winning, but it is very interesting that Tian Sha (both the faction and the individual character) has taken interest in her. Mercedes VS Xia Li will be a great match, and I would love if Mercedes was Tian Sha’s first opponent. Mercedes could come out the winner of the feud, but it’d definitely help give some credibility to Tian Sha if we saw her take the fight to Mercedes.

The opening tag match was great, and I figured Shotzi & Ember would win to be seen as contenders to the tag titles. But Raquel wrecking Shotzi to send a message to Ember could be a sign that Ember challenges Raquel for the singles title. Ember and Raquel are the only two to have been NXT Women’s Champion and Tag Team Champion in their careers, so a match of those two would go a long way to having Raquel establish herself as the superior NXT Women’s Champion. Then, Franky Monet of course won her debut match, really dominating Cora Jade, but I feel like she could’ve had a slightly tougher time to imply that she was underestimating Jade and believing her own hype a little too much, similar to LA Knight when he debuted.

Speaking of which, I figured we’d get a proxy in the feud between DeBiase and Grimes, but I didn’t think it’d be Knight. Knight does make a good contrast to Grimes because he’s more muscular and is even more braggadocios in his promos, and he could trade that yellow jacket for a gold one with DeBiase’s help. I’m thinking we could get Knight VS Grimes with the “Million Dollar Legacy” on the line. They should even bring back the Million Dollar Championship belt and make it a ladder match so that the person who brings the belt down is the rightful protégé to DeBiase.

I like that Hit Row is putting every champion on notice, same as Pete Dunne did. All superstars in NXT should be greedy enough to want all the belts. Swerve could be North American Champion or even top champion. Top Dolla could even be North American Champion and Tag Team Champion with Adonis, and Adonis could even be Cruiserweight Champion and Tag Team Champion. I don’t know if Hit Row will become a golden faction like the Undisputed Era, but it would be awesome if they do. Escobar moving up to the North American title is great, I was thinking that was his next move, and it was natural to see MSK counter Legado to help Reed.

The tag titles are on the line next week, I feel that could go either way with Ciampa & Thatcher VS Grizzled Young Veterans also happening. One match will surely determine how the other goes, and then we’ll have our TakeOver match-up set by the end of it. Imperium is taking on Breezango, as well, and I’m thinking Imperium wins to move forward in their story. Or at least, the story we’re getting now that Wolfe was released. New SAnitY would’ve been great to face Imperium but oh well. Imperium can even wait on the other side of TakeOver to face whatever Face tag team champions we’re getting for a great stretch of matches over the Summer.

Fish VS Dunne was very good, but Dunne winning makes sense. Fish can’t be satisfied right away, he’ll surely have a match with Oney next, and then come back around to Dunne. Kross VS Balor rematch here was awesome, maybe even better than their Stand & Deliver match. Balor felt so close to winning this one, but again, Kross is making up for the reign he never really got to have, so he managed to come out on top. I even thought he was going to get disqualified at the end, but that would’ve felt a bit cheap. With rumblings of call-ups, and a chance Balor could return to RawDown in time for the return to touring, this loss does make sense. And even without that, Balor should try for another title to add to his legacy. Walter VS Balor maybe?

The Triple Threat contender’s match next week is going to be great, and so hard to call. Kyle had a stare down with Kross before, Gargano knocked Kross down, and Dunne called out all champions and says he’s the baddest man in NXT today. Kross plays Tweener well so he could face any of those guys and make it a great build.

My Score: 9.3/10

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: The Usos VS Matt Riddle & Elias!

The Bloodline is here as Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa accompany Jimmy & Jey to the ring. The reign is over 500 days and counting, but could that time be up here in Washington, DC? Or will

As footage shows, it was earlier tonight when the Bloodline arrived. They were fired up, but Byron Saxton walked over to interview them. But then The Bro scooters in super fast! The Bloodline gets clear, and they’re upset. Jey says it doesn’t matter, they gonna get Riddle AND Elias tonight like they have every other team! If Riddle and Elias want at the titles, just look who showed up tonight? But then Elias comes out of his tour bus to ask what all the commotion’s about. Solo CLOBBERS Elias from behind! The Bloodline mugs The Drifter, and Solo whips Elias into spare railing! Sami says that’s what they get! Then he realizes Elias might be hurt.

In the present, Jey gets a mic to say, “The Bloodline is now in your city!” But Jimmy says there’s some bad news. The championship match that was supposed to go down is officially canceled! Cuz the Enforcer, Solo Sikoa, done bodied Elias in the parking lot. Now, everyone surely came here to see them compete, but here’s the bright side: Riddle won’t be humiliated, and Elias can go home to work on any song he wants to. Sami adds, “Bet! Sorry, it just felt like a good time for a ‘bet.'” Jimmy understands. But what you can look forward to now is the Usos focusing on being the best tag team ever!

The Usos will defend against any team that wants to run up, but those that run up will get done up! Because everyone else is the twos, and #WeTheOnes! But “Bro…” Riddle comes out to say, “First of all, it wasn’t so cool of you guys to take out my partner Elias tonight, dude. Like tonight was his first night to finally get WWE gold. And honestly, if I’m being real, it’s not really like The Bloodline to run from a fight. I would say it’s not very… How you say? Ucey?” Sami tells Riddle, “Yo yo yo yo yo yo! Hold up, my dawg.” Sami wants to explain something to Riddle. Riddle is not the one who decides what is or isn’t Ucey. Sami’s a bit of an expert in this field.

In fact, Sami is a certified Uceologist. What? Sami is the one to say what is and isn’t Ucey. For example, Solo Sikoa showing once again why he IS the Enforcer by destroying Elias, that is UCEY! The Usos continuing to be the longest reigning tag team champions in history, that is UCEY! Riddle coming out here, running his mouth, thinking he ever had a chance at beating them is NOT Ucey. So unless Riddle wants to suffer the same fate as Elias, just go home. Riddle says he did find someone else. And there WILL be a tag title match tonight! Now, Riddle and this guy aren’t really bros, but they both hate the Bloodline. It’s KEVIN OWENS!!

The Prizefighter and the Bro go to the ring but the Usos say that’s fine. Will the #KOBros be the ones to dethrone Jimmy & Jey?

The teams sort out, Kevin and Jey start and the bell rings. Kevin blocks Jey’s superkick and fires off haymakers! Kevin has Jey in a corner, the ref counts and Kevin lets off at 4. Kevin drags Jey up to whip to ropes and he CLOBBERS Jey with an elbow, to then SENTON! Cover, TWO! Sami coaches Jey but Kevin drags Jey up. Kevin bumps Jey off buckles, JABS, then backs up to run corner to corner! CANNO- NO, Jimmy gets Jey out of the way. Fans boo but Kevin goes out after them all to CLOBBER Jimmy! Kevin whips Jey into barriers! Fans fire up with Kevin, Kevin asks Solo what he’s staring at, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns as Kevin covers, TWO! Jimmy survives the cannonball but Kevin knocks him back down. Kevin goes up and up and MOONSUALTS! Cover, ONE!! Jimmy scrambles to ropes, Sami is upset about things, but Riddle tags in. Riddle stands Jimmy up to ROCK him with haymakers. Riddle whips, Jimmy reverses but Riddle holds ropes to BOOT Jimmy. But Jimmy distracts the ref and Jey ENZIGURIS Riddle down! Sami is fired up but fans boo the cheap shot. Jimmy tags Jey, the Usos split the wishbone. Jey looms over Riddle, he drags Riddle around then stomps him down. Jey throws his shirt at Kevin but Kevin just throws it on the floor.

Jey CHOKES Riddle on the ropes, he lets off at 4, and Jimmy BOOTS Riddle down! The cheap shots continue and fans boo again. Jey drags Riddle up, scoops him and tags Jimmy. Jimmy climbs up, BACKBREAKER AX HANDLE COMBO! Cover, TWO! Riddle hangs tough and the Usos are annoyed. Fans rally but Jimmy drags Riddle up to ROCK him! Riddle ROCKS Jimmy back, fires off more shots, then he BLASTS Jey! Jimmy UPPERCUTS Riddle down! Jimmy BLASTS Kevin for good measure! But Riddle fires off forearms on Jimmy! Jey tags in as Riddle whips, and Jimmy reverses, the Usos DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER! Jey covers, TWO!

Sami is anxious and even Solo shows a bit of stress as Riddle is still in this. But Sami says Jey has Riddle where they want him. Jey stands Riddle up but Riddle CHOPS and CHOPS and fires off fast hands! Jey ducks the roundhouse, to POP-UP NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Riddle survives but still in a bad way as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Riddle wipes out both Usos! Riddle BROTONS Jimmy then tags in Kevin! Kevin goes up top fast, to SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Sami is stressing out as Kevin keeps focus on Jimmy. Jimmy rises slowly and Sami tries to warn him, but Jimmy turns around into a kick! But Jimmy stops the Stunner! Kevin stops the superkick, to SUPERKICK back! Kevin whips, but Jimmy slips off the pop-up to SUPERKICK! Both men are down and fans fire up! Both men crawl, hot tags to Jey and Riddle! Riddle spins Jey around to PELE! Then Riddle kips up, but Jey mule kicks and UPPERCUTS!

Riddle goes to ropes, Jey run sin but Riddle headscissors him out of the ring! Riddle hurries back in, Sami helps Jey stand up. Kevin storms over but Solo stands in the way! The ref warns Solo, but then Riddle PLANCHAS to take Solo out! Jey SUPERKICKS Kevin! Riddle FLASH KNEES Jey! Riddle puts Jey in, tells Sami to back off, but Jimmy tags in! Riddle rushes Jey but Jimmy storms in. Riddle ROCKS Jimmy, Jey USPERKICKS Riddle! ONE D on the rebound!! Cover, USOS WIN!

Winners: The Usos, by pinfall (still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)

The Bloodline’s numbers game is the real unstoppable force in the WWE! And now Sami and the Usos mug Riddle! But Kevin has a chair! He SMACKS Jimmy, and he SMACKS Jey! Sami gets away but Kevin chases him to the back! Solo gets in the ring to SUPERKICK Riddle! Solo fires off on Riddle with heavy fists! Fans boo but the Enforcer isn’t done with Riddle yet. Solo has a taped up thumb, shoutout to Umaga with the SAMOAN SPIKE!! Riddle sputters and crawls to a corner, Solo runs in to HIP ATTACK!! Solo’s rage is unleashed as he gets a chair for himself.

Solo puts the chair around Riddle’s head, punches Riddle down, then goes to the far corner. Fans boo as hard as they can but Solo roars and runs in, FULL METAL HIP ATTACK!!! Riddle writhes and clutches his neck! Medics rush out and put Riddle in a neck brace and onto a backboard. Did Solo just sideline The Bro all on his own?

 

BREAKING NEWS for SmackDown!

Sheamus and Drew McIntyre wanted to challenge the winners to an Undisputed Tag Team Championship match this Friday, but the Scottish Warrior is unfortunately not cleared medically. That means the Celtic Warrior will have “Butch” as his new tag partner! Will Pete Dunne be able to help Sheamus against the Usos? Or will it be more of the same from The Bloodline?

 

The Judgment Day speaks.

Rhea says, “Bayley and Asuka, they’re both credible. They’ve both been Women’s Champion, they’ve both been Women’s Tag Team Champion. They’re both very, very good at what they do. But you know what they’re not? They’re not Rhea bloody Ripley! So when I’m done with them tonight and they’re laying in that ring crying their eyes out and I move on to Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship, and when I’m done with Bianca, the whole Raw Women’s locker room will be calling me Mami.” The Judgment Day like that, and then Rhea high-fives as she heads out. Will the Eradicator eliminate everyone in her path to the title?

 

JBL’s Poker Invitational begins!

Tamina, Dana Brooke, Shelton Benjamin, Dominik Mysterio and Akira Tozawa are one table, while Chad Gable, Luke Gallows and Baron Corbin are another. Otis has a huge plate of sausage but he isn’t sharing. JBL walks over to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the JBL Poker Invitational, an event that’ll become as big a tradition as The Masters, the Olympics, and as grand a spectacle as WrestleMania. Now, I know a lot of you don’t see eye to eye, and Tozawa… Nobody likes you. But poker is a gentlemen’s, and gentlewoman’s, sport. Especially in the high stakes room. The rules are simple: It is a dime ante. 10, 20K-”

BOOM! Dexter Lumis enters with Johnny Gargano, and he drops the Louis Vuitton bag full of cash he won from The Miz! JBL assumes Crystal Lake doesn’t get mail, but Jason Vorhees here needs an invitation. And JBL is pretty sure he didn’t invite the… one-and-a-half of them. Besides, Lumis can’t possibly have the 50K buy-in. So go stare at someone else. Gargano says “Show ’em.” And Lumis dumps the money out! Well okay! Welcome to the tournament! Lumis has a seat at the table, will anyone be able to crack that poker face?

 

Triple Threat: Bayley VS Rhea Ripley VS Asuka!

A Role Model, an Eradicator and an Empress walk into the ring, but this ain’t no joke! Only one can move on to the next round, who will be one step closer to facing The RawEST Women’s Champion?

But then surprisingly, Becky Lynch calls to Bayley from up in the bleachers! “Hey, ol’ pal! Well, I dunno if I can call ya pal anymore, seeing as how you and your cronies keep trying to jump me.” Fans cheer Becky on and she says, “I was just up at the merch stand, reminiscing about how fun it was last week, me beating up Bayley and her two cronies at one time. That was awesome.” Bayley says it’d be more awesome if Becky could hurry this up. Bayley has stuff to do. Well Becky wants Bayley to know that first, this is a great fan sign, #BigTimeBecky. But did Bayley also know that it’s been over three years since they faced each other 1v1?

Becky says they didn’t even scratch the surface back then. She was gone, Bayley showed up, but kudos to Bayley for carrying the WWE during the ThunderDome era! She really did! She was champion, Double Champion, sometimes doing double and triple duty. Bayley says the fans can cheer for that. The fans do cheer! Becky says Bayley was awesome, but then Becky came back right as Bayley was gone. And then Bayley came back right as Becky was gone. Bayley says she’s kinda repeating herself, and we all know the history. But Becky has a match so she should go, and also Bayley has a match right now that she’s about to win.

So the point is, Becky doesn’t need to tell Bayley’s history. That doesn’t matter now. Stop living in the past! Becky came down the stairs, she’s interrupting matches and Bayley’s “Magic!” Becky thinks she can just do whatever she wants, huh? Yeah, actually, she does. Becky was just trying to catch up. But Bayley says the difference between them, now more than ever, when Becky is here, it’s all about her, isn’t it? Fans cheer Becky because they definitely like her. Bayley says the fans just make it worse. Becky doesn’t care about the fans or anyone else! BAYLEY cares about the fans and the wrestlers!

And that’s what Bayley has been doing while Becky’s been gone. That’s why Bayley has Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky. She looks out of the future for the idiot fans! And the locker room! Bayley sees the bigger picture, but Becky just looks in the mirror! No one cheers, huh? That’s because no one has respect for what Bayley’s doing! Fans still cheer Becky. Becky says Bayley is looking out for people, and DMG CTRL has been successful. Well, two thirds have been, because there’s two champs and one loser. But hey, good luck tonight. Maybe they can finally go 1v1 again and make some history. If Bayley’s woman enough to face The Man, that is.

Becky leaves just as Rhea makes her entrance. Will Big Time Becks have to change her plans on who she’s facing next round?

Raw returns and Asuka makes her entrance. The bell rings and Asuka DROPKICKS Bayley! But Rhea rolls Asuka, ONE!! Asuka dodges Rhea’s haymaker but Bayley ROCKS her! Bayley grab at Asuka but Rhea rolls Bayley up, ONE!! Rhea kicks and stomps and KNEE SMASHES Bayley to then throw her out. Asuka runs in but Rhea catches her hip attack! Rhea CLUBS Asuka, suplexes high and hard, then covers, TWO! Rhea CLUBS Asuka, CLUBS her more, then bumps her off buckles. Fans rally for Asuka but Rhea RAMS into her again and again. Bayley runs up, but Rhea blocks the roll-up! Bayley avoids the stomp, and the two stare down.

Bayley taunts “Mami,” then dodges her haymaker to waistlock. Rhea pries the hold, bucks Bayley at the ropes, then runs in again to scoop. Bayley slips off, but Rhea blocks the punch! Rhea throws body shots, RAMS Bayley into the corner and RAMS into her more! Rhea then brings Bayley out to snap suplex! Rhea looms over Bayley, goes back to Asuka, and whips her corner to corner hard! Rhea then goes to Bayley to CLUB her down. Rhea grins as she whips corner to corner and Bayley hits buckles hard! Rhea grins more as she storms over to Asuka. Rhea stands Asuka up but Asuka throws body shots!

Rhea kicks low, TOSSES Asuka aside, then TOSSES Bayley around! Fans rally as Rhea soaks up the heat. Rhea storms over to Asuka and drags her up. Asuka throws more body shots, then kicks and a SOBAT! Bayley runs in to BLINDSIDE LARIAT Rhea, Asuka SLIDING KICKS! Asuka and Bayley come to an understanding to mug Rhea, and  they POST her! Then Bayley kicks Asuka and headlocks. Asuka fires body shots, powers out and runs Bayley over! Bayley goes to the apron, she avoids the hip attack and she drags Asuka out to throw her into barriers! Bayley CLUBS Asuka, but Rhea CANNONBALLS them both! Fans fire up as Rhea laughs, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Bayley paces around as Rhea smothers Asuka into the mat with a forearm. Seems Bayley and Rhea now have that understanding, and Rhea sits Asuka up for Bayley to stomp down. Bayley talks trash, Rhea slaps Asuka around, and they drag Asuka up. Rhea bumps Asuka off buckles, then Rhea whips Bayley in, but Asuka puts her on the apron! Asuka dodges Rhea, URAKEN, URAKEN, SOBAT, KICK and URAKEN to an AX HANDLE! But Rhea blocks the whip! Rhea whips Asuka to a corner, but Asuka dodges! ROUNDHOUSE! Bayley runs in but is sent into Bayley! Rhea SLAMS Bayley, but Asuka uses Bayley as a step to BOOT Rhea!

Fans fire up as Asuka SOBATS Rhea again. Asuka headlocks Rhea, runs at Bayley, but only the LRIAT Hits as Rhea fights the bulldog. Rhea runs in, Asuka dodges, CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Asuka fires up and fans are with her as she watches Rhea and Bayley sit up. Asuka KICKS Rhea, she KICKS Bayley, then back to Rhea! Another for Bayley! Rhea! Bayley, but she ducks! Roll-up, TWO! Bayley kicks but into an ANKLE LOCK! Bayley flails, reaches out, pulls at Asuka’s hair but that won’t stop this. Rhea gets up and storms over, but Bayley grabs Rhea’s hair! Rhea HEADBUTTS Bayley, and Asuka GERMAN SUPLEXES her!

Asuka avoids a kick from Rhea to ROUNDHOUSE Rhea down! Fans fire up but Bayley drags Asuka out! Bayley hurries back in, she calls to Rhea, and Rhea shakes out the cobwebs. Rhea stands up and Bayley still wants to work together. Rhea says she won’t let Bayley boss her around. Bayley says okay, and then she lunges! Into a choke grip! Rhea know that was coming, but Bayley ROCKS her with a forearm! Rhea ROCKS Bayley, Bayley ROCKS Rhea, repeat! Bayley pulls hair but Rhea throws body shots! Bayley hits back, Rhea throws more! Asuka leaps for a DOUBLE CODE BREAKER!! Cover on Rhea, TWO!! Cover on Bayley, TWO!!

Fans fire up and Asuka hurries to a corner. Asuka climbs but Bayley is after her! They brawl, Asuka sends Bayley down then leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! ASUKA LOCK!!! Bayley flails, reaches out, crawls around with her one free arm, but Rhea returns! Rhea basement dropkicks them both! Cover on Asuka, TWO! Rhea is frustrated but fans rally up. Rhea drags Asuka up to short arm LARIAT! Rhea drags Asuka up again, for another short arm LARIAT! Fans fire up, Rhea drags Asuka up again, but Asuka turns lariat to ARMBAR TAKEDOWN!! Rhea flails, kicks, but Bayley MACHO ELBOWS Asuka! Cover on Asuka, TWO!!

Bayley frowns as she drags herself back up. Bayley runs to CLOBBER Asuka, then she rains down fists! Bayley drags Asuka back up, BAYLEY2BELLY! Cover, Rhea breaks it!! Rhea reels Bayley in for a HEADBUTT! And another! And another! And then a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Rhea grows frustrated but she turns her attention to Asuka. Asuka kicks, but into an Electric Chair Lift! And SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!! Asuka survives and Rhea cannot believe it! Fans fire up, Rhea hurries to DROPKICK Bayley out of the ring! Rhea hurries outside, runs in around the way, but Bayley KICKS her legs out! Bayley hurries in, ducks a kick and clinches! BAYLEY2- ROLL UP! TWO!!!

Asuka URAKENS! URKAENS! SOBATS! Bayley ducks the next hand, RAMS Asuka to a corner, then runs in, into  a ROUNDHOUSE!! Asuka goes up, MISSILE- NO, Bayley deflects it! ROSE PLANT!!! Cover, BAYLEY WINS!

Winner: Bayley, by pinfall (advances to next week)

Rhea is furious, but she takes it out on Asuka! Rhea kicks Asuka around, then pump handles for the RIPTIDE!! Bayley grins as she moves on, but who will she meet in the #1 contender’s match?

 

Seth Rollins is here!

DC sings for The Visionary as he swaggers his way to the ring. Rollins is here in DC to welcome them to Monday Night Rollins! “you know me, you love me. I am the Visionary, I am the revolutionary, I am Seth… “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins has big news for DC! “One week from tonight, yours truly is going to go one-on-one with The All Mighty Bobby Lashley! And the winner of that there little match will be your new #1 contender to the United States Championship.” And he’d love to say a lot of things to ol’ “Bob,” but it’s not fun if he’s not out here. And DC wants to have fun, right? The fans cheer and Rollins says they had fun singing his song.

Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” But then here comes Lashley! Fans cheer as he walks out on stage in a crimson and black suit to counter Rollins’ sky blue and white one. Lashley goes to the ring with a mic of his own to say, “So, Seth, I’m here. So what would you like to tell me. Now be careful with that.” Rollins wants Lashley to hold on. Lashley just hasn’t been the same since Crown Jewel and that loss to Brock Lesnar. And there’s no shame in losing to Lesnar! Been there, done that. But what is with Lashley’s Lesnar obsession? Is Lashley… scared of Lesnar? Rollins knows Lesnar is bigger and stronger-

Lashley stops Rollins there because he knows Rollins is just trying to get under his skin and rattle his cage. No, no, no! Rollins accepts Lashley isn’t afraid. So then… He must be jealous of Lesnar. That’s it! Because Lesnar’s a bigger star, won more championships. That’s gotta be it. Lesnar had the career Lashley wishes he had. Lashley grabs Rollins by his hair to tell him this is NOT about Lesnar! This is about Rollins, Lashley, and the US Championship that should be around Lashley’s waist. Rollins says okay, but just relax. Bob knows as well as Rollins does that the US title won’t fill the void in Lashley’s heart left by the fact that he can’t beat lesnar.

If Lashley doesn’t get his head right, he can’t get his temper right, and beating him will be a lot easier for Rollins than the first. time. Lashley DECKS Rollins for that! Rollins gets up and they brawls! Fans fire up as Lashley has the edge on Rollins! Lashley throws knees, then he throws Rollins out! Lashley goes out but Rollins jumps on him! Lashley RAMS Rollins into barriers, whips him into more barriers, and DC fires up as Rollins comes back for more! They go around, brawling right on the barriers! Referees and security rush out to stop this! Rollins claws Lashley’s face! The fans want to “Let Them Fight!” and Rollins gets free to CLOBBER Lashley!

The brawling keeps going, Adam Pearce tries to stop this, and Lashley stands down while Rollins slides into the ring. Fans sing “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~” and Lashley storms back in! They brawl in the ring again! Lashley RAMS Rollins into a corner! The hands keep flying but management and referees separate them again. Lashley gets loose, Rollins moves, the SPEAR hits one of the producers! Pearce shouts at Lashley and Rollins says Lashley has done it now! Producer Pete Williams is hurting, will Lashley have to face the consequences?

 

Backstage interview with Austin Theory.

Byron Saxton asks the WWE United States Champion what we just saw in the “absolute chaos” between Rollins and Lashley. Theory says he saw the past. Two former champs are fighting over scraps, oblivious to the fact that the business has evolved and forgotten about both of them. This business lives in the now, where it’s Theory’s time, and he has all the cards! And let’s face it, what’s a couple of challenges to Theory’s reign when the forever is just beginning? But then he turns around into Mustafa Ali! “Forever, huh? Theory, you just love writing checks that you know you can’t cash in. Oh, ‘cash-in,’ you probably don’t like hearing those words.”

Theory says Ali is annoying! He constantly whines and complains about opportunities, then gets beat down. Why doesn’t Ali just quit? Because Ali isn’t like Theory. Ali has to fight for what he has. He has to fight for opportunities! So know this: Theory can put Ali down but he’ll get back up, back in Theory’s face, and become US Champion. Fine! If Ali wants his shot, and his chance to shock the world, then they’ll do this tonight. But after Theory finishes with Ali, Theory never EVER wants to hear the word “opportunity” comes out of Ali’s sorry mouth again. Theory storms off, but will The Beacon bring the end to “The Now” that is Theory’s reign?

 

Raw checks back in with the JBL Poker Invitational.

Lumis still has fat stacks while the others mull over their hands. JBL has his Ugandan whiskey brought in by the waiter, and gives him a great tip. JBL watches as Corbin’s table moves along. Gable folds, a thank yew. But gentlemen, ladies, the game of poker is about intelligence. The intelligence to know when to push forward, and when to walk away. Gallows says, “NERD!” Gable shouts, “SHOOSH!” “NERD!” “SHOOSH!” This goes back and forth and Corbin has them stop. Take some chill pills. Corbin can’t get a ready on the freak show over here with those two shouting nonsense.

Corbin says Lumis has to be bluffing. He sees through those eyes. Lumis has nothing in his hand, or his head, and Corbin will take all his money and send him back to the loony bin where he belongs. Corbin calls! Corbin has a Straight, 5 through 9! Lumis has… a FULL HOUSE! Three Aces, two Jacks! JBL can’t believe it, either! Corbin says it’s been this way all night! Lumis is some kind of savant. Otis likes croissants. No, savants. Well, those are good, too. Lumis has to be a cheater! No way could he beat Corbin! There have to be cards up his sleeves, in those gloves. Gargano, don’t defend him! Corbin is gonna hand Lumis a-

Lumis has an AX! Whoa, okay, easy now. Corbin and JBL accept Lumis is just that good. Meanwhile, Tozawa is cleaning up on his table! But then Tozawa catches Dom trying to palm a few chips! THIEF!! Thief? This is DOM’S show! Whatever he wants, he gets. And if Tozawa has as problem with that, then the Judgment Day has a problem with Tozawa! Oh, yeah? Well, Tozawa doesn’t care! Dom is the problem. The two stand up, and Dom says Tozawa’s almost as short as his deadbeat dad. JBL has these two settle down. No fighting in the poker room. Go outside if you wanna fight. Tozawa will see Dom in the ring! Yeah he will!

Dom and Tozawa back out of the game for now, but who will be the big winner in the ring?

 

WWE United States Championship: Austin Theory VS Mustafa Ali!

The self-proclaimed Now of WWE has always had a big ego, and many times that ego has cost him. Will it cost him everything he’s worked for here tonight? Or will Theory leave The Beacon in the dark after this high stakes showdown?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who truly represents the future of the WWE!

Fans boo Theory as he and Ali tie up. Theory shoves Ali down and tells him Ali’s wasting his time. Ali comes back to headlock, but Theory powers up. Ali thrashes, Theory powers out and runs Ali over. “What’d I say? You’re wasting your time! You’re in the now.” Theory stands Ali up but Ali puts him in the corner. Ali CHOPS, but Theory just scowls through it. Theory CLOBBERS Ali, brushes himself off, and storms after Ali again. Theory digs his knee into Ali, dares him to do something, but lets off as the ref counts. Theory storms around, whips Ali corner to corner, then he runs in. Ali goes up and over, keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirl RANAS!

Theory bails out but Ali dropkicks him off the apron! Ali builds speed, and he DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp and fans fire up! Ali stalks Theory, brings him up, but Theory breaks free. Theory baits Ali and Ali runs in, Theory POSTS him with an alley-oop! “You’re in the now! You hear me? You’re in the NOW!” Theory RAMS Ali into barriers! Theory asks Ali how that feels while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Ali throws haymakers on Theory! Ali backs Theory down to a corner but Theory turns it around. Theory swings but Ali dodges to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Ali whips corner to corner, Theory reverses but Ali slips out and ROUNDHOUSES Theory away! Ali slingshots, somersaults, and NECKBREAKERS! Fans fire up but Theory fireman’s carries! Ali slips off to BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Theory crawls to a corner and Ali stands up. Ali storms over, but into an elbow! Theory goes up but Ali ROCKS him first! Ali climbs up after Theory, to SUPER- NO, Theory blocks! Wait, they tip over and Theory still hits the mat!

Theory flounders up, Ali runs in, tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO!! Theory survives the rough landing then the rougher impact, but Ali is not losing focus yet. Ali hurries to a corner but Theory anchors a foot. Ali stomps him down then climbs back up. Fans rally but Theory trips Ali up! Theory throws haymakers, puts Ali in a Tree of Woe to the outside, and then Theory stomps away on the apron! The ref counts, Theory backs off, only to go back in for more! The ref counts as Theory stomps away. Theory finally gets in the ring, then he drags Ali up to rain down fists! Fans boo, the ref has Theory back off.

Theory snarls but then DOLPH ZIGGLER SUPERKICKS him!!!

Winner: Austin Theory, by disqualification (still WWE United States Champion)

Ali can’t believe it! Theory wins and it isn’t even because of him! Ali gets mad at Ziggler but Ziggler says his beef is with Theory. Ali and Ziggler argue now, but then Theory CLOBBERS them both! Theory rains down fists on Ziggler, then he drags Ali up to POST him! Fans chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” as Theory drags Ziggler up for A-TOWN DOWN! The Show Off cost Ali and didn’t even get the better of Theory. Will Theory stay the now and become the forever of the WWE?

 

JBL is on the phone with someone.

He’s loving this! No one could’ve put on a better poker tournament. The money is everywhere! The Miz then walks in and JBL hangs up. JBL is happy to see Miz, and Miz says there was probably a slight oversight not inviting Miz. Oh, sorry, he didn’t know Miz played cards. Miz can jump in, if he has the 50K. Right… About that… After Miz’s “financial improprieties,” he isn’t very liquid. JBL knows how crypto can be, right? But c’mon, JBL knows Miz is good for it! JBL says he’d love to, but Miz hasn’t been good at paying off debts. Everyone had cash on them. Miz can give him his Rolex! Oh, that is a nice watch… Wait. Miz does know this isn’t real, right?

What?! The second hand ticks… Miz is offended and he hurries off. Well, so much for that. Will Miz find a way to get in on the game where a certain you-know-who is playing?

 

Raw returns and we continue with the poker game.

Corbin says read ’em and weep! Four of a Kind, KINGS! The table can’t believe it, but Corbin says Lady Luck is just on his side. But as Corbin leans over to grab the pot, MORE cards fall out of his sleeve! Corbin accused Lumis and he’s the one cheating?! Corbin says he’s not a cheater, someone put those in there! Styles and Corbin start shoving! JBL stops this, he JUST said no fighting! What is wrong with all of you!? They’re ruining his tournament! Okay then. Corbin, get your gear on and bring the Alphas with you. The OC heads out, will they make Corbin pay for playing dirty? JBL shouts, “What is wrong with these idiots?!”

So… Does Lumis win his table by default? Big tip for the dealer. That was easy! Great job, man! Let’s get this stuff in the bag. Tamina sneaks a few bills for herself. Will Lumis be the big winner by the end of tonight?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Cathy Kelley asks the RawEST Women’s Champion that Bayley is moving on to next week’s #1 contenders match, against whoever wins the second Triple Threat. How does Bianca feel knowing Bayley will get another opportunity? What Bayley did was impressive, but Bianca knows how to handle Bayley. But Bianca would be proud to face any of the women in the Triple Threat matches, even Rhea Ripley, who could’ve handled the loss more gracefully instead of taking her frustrations out on Bianca’s girl, Asuka. Then who does Bianca see winning the second Triple Threat?

Bianca knows Alexa, Becky and Nikki are all dangerous competitors in their own right. Bianca and Alexa grew closer taking on DMG CTRL, but she knows why Alexa was once champion and running the whole division. Nikki, on the other hand, is just unpredictable that could surprise anyone at anytime. And Becky has challenged Bianca more than any rival ever, but at the end, they have to be ready for Bianca. Bianca stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. Will Bianca be ready for whoever it is that comes out the NEW #1 contender?

 

Six Man Tag: The OC VS Baron Corbin & The Alpha Academy!

AJ Styles and the Good Brothers may not have come out the winners against Judgment Day, but they aren’t about to let JBL’s golden boy get the better of them at poker! Will the Original, Official and ONLY Club that matters be Too Sweet in DC? Or will Chad Gable & Otis help the Modern Day Wrestling God continue his winning ways?

Raw returns as JBL leads the way for his protégé. Corbin makes his entrance, followed by “SHOOOOSH~!” The trios sort out and JBL joins commentary. Corbin and Styles start, they tie up and Corbin knees low! Corbin ROCKS Styles, CLUBS him down, then runs to run Styles over! Fans boo but Corbin soaks up the heat. Corbin drags Styles up but Styles JAWBREAKERS! Styles CHOPS and ROCKS and whips, but Corbin reverses. Styles KICKS Corbin, and hits a DDT! Styles tags Karl but Corbin gets away. Gable tags in, and Gable circles with the Machine Gun. They tie up, Gable waistlocks and spins Karl to a snapmare.

Gable pushes Karl down, facelocks, gator rolls, and he waistlocks to then get a leg. Gable ties the legs up and says, “A THANK YEW~!” Gable floats to a facelock, headlocks, but Karl fights up to power out. Gable runs Karl over, “A THANK YEW~!” Gable runs, Karl drops to then hip toss! Fans fire up as Karl tags Gallows and the Good Brothers double whip. They run Gable over, then Gallows drags Gable up. Gallows wristlocks, Gable endures and rolls to bridge and handspring. Gable spins, breaks free, then says, “SHOOOOSH~!” Gallows says, “NERD~!” They start this up again, “SHOOOSH!” “NERD!” then Gallows UPPERCUTS Gable!

Tag to Karl, Karl brings Gable out but Gable throat chops! Gable bumps Karl off buckles, tags Corbin, and Corbin mugs Karl. Corbin puts Karl in a corner, fires off hands, then tags Otis. Otis RAMS into Karl, and again, and again! Otis picks Karl up to DUMP him down, then he snarls at Gallows. Otis drags Karl around to CLUB him down! Tag to Corbin, they mug Karl, then Corbin CLUBS Karl down. Fans rally but Corbin stands Karl up. Karl ORCKS and CHOPS and ROCKS Corbin again, but Corbin shoves him away. Corbin runs in, Karl moves, but Corbin slides out to slide in and LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Corbin argues the count but the ref defnds it was just two. Corbin shouts out JBL and JBL cheers Corbin on. Corbin stands Karl up, CLUBS him down, then throws down elbow after elbow! Gable soaks up the heat for Corbin while Otis says that’s hammer time. Fans chant at “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Corbin back suplexes Karl but Karl lands on his feet! Hot tag to Styles! Corbin rushes in but Styles ROCKS him! Styles springboards, but Corbin gets under! Styles rolls through to ELBOW Gable, BLAST Otis, and runs back at Corbin to fire off a Phenomenal Blitz! Corbin flounders, Styles runs, but Gable dumps him out!

Otis CLOBBERS Styles! Fans boo but Gable says, ‘SHOOOOSH~! A THANK YEW~!” Fans boo more but Raw goes to break.
