PLAY BY PLAY

Ilja Dragunov VS Dave Mastiff!

#UNBESIEGBAR is dealing with an uncontrollable fury, but The Bomber doesn’t mind seeing if they can’t temper that temper. Will the Proper British Heavyweight have the answers to solving Dragunov’s problems?

The bell rings and Dragunov rushes Mastiff to BOOT him! Dragunov CLUBS and fires off forearms on Mastiff, but he headlocks to punch back! Dragunov comes back to waistlock, but Mastiff switches to shove Dragunov down. Dragunov comes back to throw hands, Mastiff ROCKS Dragunov but he rebounds to ROCK Mastiff back! JUMP KICK! Dragunov waistlocks and lifts but Mastiff elbows the back suplex away. Mastiff swings but into a headlock. Mastiff powers out, Dragunov throws another HARD elbow! Dragunov waistlocks again, but Mastiff backs Dragunov into buckles! The ref counts the ropebreak, Mastiff staggers but Dragunov hops on for a body scissors!

Dragunov elbows away on Mastiff’s head, but Mastiff hits a BACKPACK SENTON! BT Sports Studio fires up but then Mastiff says something’s wrong and the ref calls the match?!

Referee Stoppage

Mastiff has a bloody nose, maybe a broken one, and medics come out to check. Replay is used and it was perhaps the elbow Dragunov threw before hopping on Mastiff’s back. Dragunov and Mastiff cool off, perhaps having to try this again next time.

 

NXT UK hears from one of next week’s Gauntlet participants!

Xia Brookside says she’ll win because she’s worked her way from the ground up these past two-plus years. She will go out there and fight, give it her all, because Kay Lee Ray is not a champion to be proud of. “To be your NXT UK Women’s Champion would be a dream come true. I will fight with pride, passion, but most of all, I will fight for all of you.”

 

Sid Scala talks with Kenny Williams backstage.

Sid knows Kenny knows the situation, and feels the need to emphasize there’s no real timeline for this match. Whoever loses must immediately leave NXT UK. Kenny knows that, because he asked for this! By the end of tonight, Amir Jordan will be gone, and the Lucky Yin will be here. Sid leaves Kenny to finish his preparations, but is The Chancer really ready for the gamble he’s going for?

 

NXT UK hears from Stevie Turner.

“Hello, NXT UK, my name is Stevie Turner, and I have a bad habit of taking things to the next level.” NXT UK has some of the best superstars in the WWE today, but they’re all just a little bit two-dimension. Stevie Turner is FOUR dimensional. The future is now, and Stevie won’t stop until she’s beaten everyone on her way to the top. “When you see me wrestle, you will see into the future of wrestling.” Will Stevie Turner defy time and space to take her place at the top of NXT UK?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Dragunov.

They ask him what happened out there, but he tells them that Mastiff wanted to help. But Dragunov’s lack of self control has consequences. Especially for those he respects. Dragunov vows he will change, but what will he do to calm the rage inside?

 

The Gallus boys are… goofing around?

Mark Coffey dribbles the soccer ball, or I suppose football in the UK, and Wolfgang counts for him. He only gets about 5 but NXT UK Media asks if this is some kind of new training method. No, it’s just them showing that even when they drop the ball, Gallus boys get back up. Rampage Brown gets the ball for them and he asks where Joe is. Well if he returns the ball, they’ll tell him. Rampage tosses the ball and says that Joe said, when he’s ready, they’d have a rematch. Where’s Joe? Well not here now. But Wolfgang’s here. Rampage admits the Gallus boys do love a good fight. He loves a good fight, so Wolfie will do. Then it’s made! Will the Last King of Scotland survive the Rampage meant for the Iron King?

 

NXT UK hears from another Gauntlet participant, Isla Dawn.

“I am an entity like none of these girls have ever seen before.” Isla laughs, but she has proven more wicked than we thought. “Kay Lee Ray has used me as a stepping stone to further herself. And now, she has to watch as her title reign burns. To become the NXT UK Women’s Champion, oh, how good it would be to gain the whole world. And al; I had to sacrifice… was my soul.” Will Isla make the other competitors a sacrifice to her own glory?

 

NXT UK presents an all new Supernova Sessions!

“Hear me now, live from the moon,” Noam Dar is back and has Sha Samuels as his cohost! It has been brought to their attention that the general opinion of Noam Dar is “overrated.” Dar makes one thing perfectly clear: good, bad or indifferent, Dar doesn’t need validation from any of the dafties! Dar validates Dar! The rest is simply knowledge. So never come at him with such nonsense again. Now, tonight’s guest is making his #SNS debut, this is an exclusive! It’s Nathan Frazer! Wait, wait, no, isn’t that Ben Carter? Nathan/Ben is glad to be back, but both Dar and Sha are confused. Maybe they missed the memo? Be quiet a minute, okay?

Dar says they don’t do reruns here! And Dar has no questions for Ben/Nathan. Sha tells Nathan/Ben to stop stuffing his face with breadsticks. That’s not for him, that’s for new guests, exciting guests. Ben/Nathan apologizes while Dar and Sha take a seat. Well, what does Dar even do? Well okay “Nathan,” what’s so different about you now? Right! He says that “Ben Carter” was actually just a name he gave himself because he didn’t want his parents finding out he was wrestling. Dar and Sha chuckle. Nathan went to the States to play football, soccer for the Americans, he couldn’t let the coaches know he was wrestling, either, so the name just stuck. But he’s in the WWE now so he has nothing to hide! He IS Nathan Frazer.

Dar speaks up and says, “I don’t know about you, Sha, but I do what I want.” Sha agrees, he does what he wants, too. They don’t need to worry about mommy and daddy. But then okay Nathan, what have you learned here in his time in NXT UK? Good question, right? Nathan says it is well-documented that the reason he came to NXT UK was so he could learn the traditional British style. The last few months, Johnny Moss and James Mason have been training him, and now Nathan can blend British style with his high-flyer style, becoming more of a complete performer. It’s been fun. Well, alright. Easy day at the office, huh? Guess they can have some actual fun now. Play the mus-

No, Sha has a question. Alright, fire away, bruv. Sha asks who Nathan Frazer thinks he is. “Y’know what really winds me up?” Sha throws his hat down and gets mad as he says he’s annoyed seeing everyone singing Nathan’s praises. “Oh, Nathan Frazer’s the future~! He’s rebranded himself~!” Sha says Nathan is NOT a true British wrestler, and yet has the nerve to put the British flag on his titantron like he’s Captain Britain! But he’s from the UK- “Oh shut up, you tart!” Sha says Nathan needs to get in that ring with a REAL British Wrestler! Nathan is a fraud, a pretender, and a one-trick pony!

Dar says Nathan likes to talk about what he’s learned, but he hasn’t had the ultimate lesson from the grand master. Dar IS British Wrestling! THEY are British Wrestling! And Sha is right, because Nathan wouldn’t last a minute in there, let alone six three-minute rounds in a Heritage Cup Rules match. Dar is a young legend, and Nathan could never step to him. So that’s a challenge then? Well don’t get ahead- Sha says CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! In that case, Nathan accepts! But wouldn’t it be something if this “rookie” beat the “grand master” of British Wrestling at his own game? BT Sports Studio is fired up as Nathan heads out.

Dar has the music play them off and then he tries to argue it out with Sha, but will Dar’s body have to cash the check Sha’s mouth wrote?

 

NXT UK hears from another Gauntlet participant, Jinny.

“I don’t care who I face in this Gauntlet. I’m not letting anyone take this opportunity from me. This is MY time, and I am not letting any little girl get in my way of me getting what already belongs to me.” The Spoiled Princess has studied everything KLR does, and vows that this is HER division, and that she was born for greatness. But will the Fashionista be denied the greatest accessory by four other opponents?

 

Sid Scala speaks to Amir Jordan now.

He also wants to make sure Amir is committed to this stipulation. Once the bell rings, the ban is for good. Amir knows that, and he’s going to do this anyway. Sid leaves Amir to his preparations, but can anything prepare him for the possibility of saying good-bye?

 

NXT UK hears from Team Subculture.

Flash Morgan Webster’s Mod Life, Mark Andrews’ skater and musician life, and Dani Luna’s punk rock life taught all of them to stand up for who they are, to take risks and refusing to conform to the norm. There was a time when people just like them would’ve fought each other all over the country. “But when it comes to the squared circle, our passion, dedication, loyalty means we are a perfect fit. So hear our call. Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, join us.” They may have grown out of different subcultures, but now they ARE The Subculture. Are you joining in?

 

Tyler Bate and A-Kid both watch their rivalry back.

Bate admits to not having watched the February 2020 match back in some time. And A-Kid admits that you can see it on his face, that he just wanted to face Bate because he looked up to him. Bate had a soft spot for AK and they spent time together training and working together. Bate knew AK can get impatient, and that is how AK lost. AK knows that he wasn’t ready to win. He didn’t have the mental strength or the experience. But roughly a year later, in AK’s first defense of the Heritage Cup, he was a different person. The cup was his life, but Bate was ready anyway. Bate admits to being rather hairy and wild looking.

AK admits he got frustrated, and that first fall was where he knew. He wasn’t angry, just trying to figure things out. AK came back, and Bate points to the tornado DDT as the moment he lost and AK saw the doubts. Bate says when he gets frustrated, he has to remind himself that the biggest lessons are in your losses, and that match was the best example of it. This is good motivation for AK, and Bate knows that this isn’t about the physical but about the mental. Neither man will make those same mistakes, and Bate promises to make this cerebral. But AK says that having the cup makes him the better man, and he will still be the better man. With the series tied, it all comes down to the six rounds ahead of them!

 

NXT UK hears from another Gauntlet participant, Dani Luna.

“Not only am I the strongest girl in this match, but I’m the only girl who understands what real loss feels like. And it’s about time I stand eye-to-eye with Kay Lee Ray at the top.” They faced off before, and after only three matches in NXT UK. Next time will be inevitable. Will the punk rock powerhouse punch her golden ticket?

 

There is a medical update on Dave Mastiff.

It is confirmed that he did suffer a broken nose from the shot he took from Ilja Dragunov. Mastiff will need some time away, so NXT UK wishes him a speedy recovery.

 

Trent Seven VS Saxon Huxley!

The Man from Moustache Mountain is feeling refreshed after winning alongside the Big Strong Boy. But now he faces a Divine Beast of the Astral Plane! Will the Seven Stars align and help the Artful Dodger defeat the deranged and dangerous Huxley?

The bell rings and Huxley is barking as he rushes Seven. Seven dodges the boot, circles with Huxley then ties up. Huxley uses leverage to put Seven in a corner. The ref counts, Huxley lets off but then swings, only for Seven to get away. Seven and Huxley circle, tie up, and Huxley CLUBS Seven down! Seven gets up but Huxley throws heavy body shots! Huxley throws forearms against the ropes, then whips Seven to KNEE him low! Huxley whips and KNEES again, then whips to kitchen sink knee Seven down! Seven writhes, Huxley shouts, “What’re you gonna do?!” Huxley stomps Seven, runs, but Seven drops down to leap up!

Huxley catches Seven’s crossbody but Seven fights to make Huxley fall over! BT Sports Studio fires up with Seven as he scoops and SLAMS Huxley, then drops the leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Huxley survives and Seven grows frustrated. Huxley slowly gets up but Seven is on him. Huxley elbows out of the ripcord, whips Seven to ropes, but Seven gets around him. Huxley follows to KNEE Seven up high! Seven rebounds but into a THESZ PRESS! Huxley runs to drop a big elbow! Cover, TWO! Seven survives and Huxley huffs and puffs as he paces around. Seven gets to a corner, Huxley runs in for a BIG corner splash!

Seven sits down, Huxley scrapes his boot on Seven’s face over and over! Huxley runs side to side, for a HIP ATTACK! Seven sputters while Huxley goes to the outside. Huxley comes in around the way, to BOOT Seven down to the floor!! Huxley drags Seven up as the ring count climbs, but Huxley scoops and SLAMS Seven! Huxley leaves Seven behind and the count is 6 of 10! But then Huxley goes back outside and aims from the apron. “There he goes! There goes Saxon Huxley!” BIG elbow drop a la Mick Foley right onto Seven! Seven writhes as the ring count climbs again. Huxley gets up at 5 of 10, drags Seven up to put in at 7. Cover, TWO!

Huxley grows frustrated, though it’s hard to tell with all his barking. Huxley drags Seven up, clamps onto his ears, but Seven CHOPS back! Seven fires up to CHOP, but Huxley throat chops! Huxley drags Seven back up to whip him into a corner. Seven dodges the splash, fires up, fakes Huxley out and hits a DDT! Both men are down but Sam Gradwell is on the titantron! “Ello, Moustache Boy. You might be a ‘founding father,’ but how’s it feel to know, that after you’ve made that daft little entrance, after you’ve spun around that daft little towel, after you’ve twizzled that moustache, lost 50 pounds, you still can’t get the job done.” Seven seethes, but he still dodges Huxley’s boot!

Seven wristlocks and ripcords, but Huxley BOOTS the lariat away! Huxley gets Seven up, TWO-HAND SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!?!? Seven survives and Huxley is fuming! Huxley paces around, stomps around, and aims at Seven. Huxley runs in, but Seven puts the boot on the ropes! CHOP to SNAP DRAGON! Ripcord, SEVEN STAR LARIAT!! Cover, Seven wins!

Winner: Trent Seven, by pinfall

What was that about not getting the job done? Seven may not be a champion, but he isn’t letting the Thunderstorm get him down! Will Gradwell have to put up or shut up against the Man from Moustache Mountain?

 

NXT UK hears from the fifth Gauntlet participant, Emilia McKenzie.

“I am gonna win this Gauntlet match and prove to everyone that even though I’m the youngest here, I’m definitely the toughest. I’ve already shown Kay Lee Ray what I’m capable of, and she’s already running scared. I’m definitely gonna be the one to end her reign.” When Millie is champion, she will prove to everyone that she IS the best woman wrestler in the UK. Will #SuplexMillie throw everyone else aside to get at the Scary Queen of Scots?

 

NXT UK Media and referees rush to the women’s locker room!

Xia Brookside has been assaulted by Amale! The French Hope is in a fury as referees drag her away from an already unconscious Xia! She shouts something about how SHE should’ve been chosen for the Gauntlet match! Does this mean Xia won’t even enter the contender’s match now? Has Amale only made things easier for the other four?

 

No Disqualifications, Loser Leaves NXT UK: Kenny Williams VS Amir Jordan!

A tag team was ended when a friendship was broken. But now, one man’s NXT UK career will come to an abrupt end after what will surely be a brutal battle. Will it be the Lucky Yin that benefits from the rift he tore between them? Or will the Bhangra Badboy be the one to banish the man who betrayed his trust?

The bell rings, Amir and Kenny talk trash at each other, and then they tie up. They go around, Kenny puts Amir in a corner and climbs up to pie face him over and over. Amir shoves him away and the two go again. Kenny puts Amir in another corner, unleashes body shots, but again Amir shoves him away. Amir ROCKS Kenny, counter punches, then rolls him up, TWO! Amir tells him to get serious, because it’s all on the line! Kenny and Amir circle, tie up, and Kenny gets around to CLUB Amir down! Kenny whips, Amir reverses to ROCK Kenny! Kenny DECKS Amir, whips, but Amir reverses again to whip Kenny HARD into buckles!

Amir stalks Kenny, drags him up, and whips Kenny into more buckles. Kenny flops to the apron, Amir drags him to center for a cover, TWO! Amir drags Kenny up, Kenny wrenches the PELE the bad arm! Kenny goes after that arm, brings Amir around and puts him through ropes. Kenny wraps the bad arm in the ropes and CLUBS away on it! Kenny hops up to kick Amir over and over! Kenny lets off to run and dropkick Amir in the back! Cover, TWO! Amir toughs it out but Kenny knocks him down with a straddle attack! And then another! Kenny sits Amir up for clubbing crossface forearms, then mounts the arm! Amir resists, Kenny brings him around and whips him out of the ring.

Kenny goes out after him, and brings Amir up to wrench and WRING the arm out! Amir writhes from hitting the floor shoulder first! The ref checks, Kenny grabs the timekeeper’s chair and brings it over! Amir stands up for Kenny to JAM him in the stomach and SMACK him on the back! Amir writhes his way back to the ring and Kenny says this is what he gets. Kenny gets the toolbox from ringside! Kenny dumps its contents out as he gets in the ring, but Amir goes after him with body shots! Kenny headbutts low, CLUBS Amir over and over on the back, until Amir is on the mat! Kenny then gets Amir up to SHOVE him into buckles!

Kenny hoists Amir up top, then CLUBS him and drags him into the Tree of Woe! Kenny then fetches something from the toolbox. It’s a spare crossbar! Kenny brings chair and bar over and takes a seat first. Kenny wants Amir to listen to him a second: “I always hated your guts!” Amir is going to find out just how scummy Kenny can be! Kenny goes after Amir’s mouth with the bar!! Amir holds him off, hits back and knocks Kenny down! Amir drags himself out of the Tree, builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Kenny hits barriers! BT Sports Studio is fired up as Amir hobbles over to Kenny. Amir drags Kenny up, whips, but Kenny reverses to POST Amir, bad shoulder first!

Kenny isn’t done there, though, and he smirks as he starts pulling up floor mats! Kenny exposes BT Sports Studio’s concrete floor, then BOOTS Amir down! Kenny drags Amir over by a headlock, but Amir fights off the headlock driver! Amir back suplexes, Kenny holds the apron skirt to resist! Kenny ROCKS Amir then RAMS him into barriers! Kenny runs in but Amir TOSSES him up and over! Kenny tumbles and hits the floor out there! Amir climbs up the barrier to FLYING AX HANDLE Kenny down! The ref checks on Kenny but Amir CLUBS Kenny on the back! They throw hands, brawl closer and closer to the trons, but Kenny shoves Amir away.

Kenny retreats but Amir pursues and CLUBS him by the tech area! “EVERYTHING’S ON THE LINE!!” Amir clubs away, bumps Kenny off road cases, and BOOTS him down! Amir brings a road case around, and RAMS it into Kenny!! Kenny goes tumbling away but Amir pursues! “This is what you wanted!” Amir CLUBS Kenny, throws body shots, and then whips him into more trunks and cases! Kenny crawls towards a table while Amir clutches his bad arm. Amir storms over, Kenny uses a FIRE EXTINGUISHER! The blast gets Amir right in the face! Kenny reels Amir in, BACK SUPLEX THROUGH THE TABLE!!

Kenny laughs, even as he clutches his own ribs, because of the wreckage Amir writhes in. Amir tells the ref that he isn’t quitting, this is his career here! Amir gets up but Kenny throws him to ringside. Kenny puts Amir in the ring, aims from a corner, and runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO!! Amir isn’t done yet and Kenny grows frustrated. Kenny goes to a corner and exposes a buckle! Kenny brings Amir over but Amir blocks the buckle bump to ROCK Kenny! Amir sunset flips, TWO!! Kenny escapes but Amir whips him at the corner! Kenny stomps himself, SHOVES Amir into the steel, then hits the WHEELBARROW FACEBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!?!?

Amir survives and Kenny can’t believe it! Amir throws the tape off his arm, it’s only annoying him. Amir goes to the apron, Kenny scowls as he goes after him. Kenny drags Amir up, Amir throws body shots! Amir wants to suplex Kenny to the bare concrete! Kenny lands on the apron to save himself, and the two brawl! Kenny BOOTS Amir, reels him in to a waistlock, but Amir holds ropes for dear life! Amir elbows Kenny away but Kenny lands on his feet. Kenny chop blocks Amir and brings him in! Amir fights off the powerbomb, the two wobble, and Amir kicks Kenny low! Amir reels Kenny in, aims for the concrete, and SNAP SUPLEXES Kenny onto it!

The ref checks on both men, that was still double-edged for Amir! The two are somehow okay to continue, and Amir gets up first. Amir drags Kenny up, telling him this is what he wanted! Amir shoves Kenny in, climbs up a corner, and SWANTON BOMBS!! Cover, TWO!!?!! Somehow, Kenny survives, but Amir says that’s fine! Amir looks over and grabs the chair. Amir sits the chair up and says this is what Kenny wanted! “This is what happens to scumbags!” Amir dribbles Kenny’s head off the chair! BT Sports Studio fires up with Amir, and Amir sees the bare buckle. Amir climbs up that corner, but Kenny THROWS the chair!

But Amir catches it, and throws it back! Kenny dodges and hits ropes to trip Amir up! Amir lands bad on the bare buckle, and Kenny sets the chair down. Kenny drags Amir over, FULL METAL HEADLOCK DRIVER!! Cover, Kenny wins!!

Winner: Kenny Williams, by pinfall; Amir Jordan must LEAVE NXT UK

The Scum of the Earth celebrates ruining the life of someone who wanted to do things the right way! Where does The Chancer go from here? BT Sports Studio applauds Amir’s valiant effort as the emotions wash over him. Where does the Bhangra Badboy literally go now that he can’t stay in the place he called home?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode, and with some surprising moments. I didn’t think the heavy hitting match of Dragunov VS Mastiff would be so hard hitting that it couldn’t actually finish. But it does seem to work out in Dragunov’s story, and could be used to feed his next match or feud. We got good promos from all of the Gauntlet participants, but I could not have foreseen someone taking out one of them. Seems a shame it’s Xia Brookside but at the same time it was totally going to be Brookside, she was being pushed as a frontrunner. Xia VS Amale is going to happen on the side, there could be a substitute or it could just be four participants now, but the winner is going to be a Face, so it’s either Dani or Millie.

Seven VS Huxley was a very good match, even with Gradwell trying to distract. That makes it all work for the story building between Seven and Gradwell, which is going to be a great match. Bate and A-Kid had a great vignette to hype up their rematch, and this is going to be the best British Rounds/Heritage Cup match in NXT UK yet. I can’t be sure which way it goes. Supernova Sessions was great, especially because Dar pointed out the strangeness of Ben Carter being Nathan Frazer, but Nathan did a good job explaining that he’s been Nathan all along and “Ben Carter” was the stage name. Dar VS Nathan in British Round rules is going to be really good, and could act as a contender’s match for the winner of Bate VS A-Kid.

I like that NXT UK is taking their time building to Joe Coffey VS Rampage Brown now, and Rampage VS Wolfgang is going to be a very good match that Rampage will of course win. I like that we got some last promos from Kenny and Amir, to see if either one wanted to back out and reconsider. Of course neither was going to, and that No Disqualification match (which again was more like No Holds Barred because of no count outs) was very fitting of the build. It coming down to the bare buckle was also fitting given the last time these two faced off.

Williams winning to stay and send Jordan away is surprising, but I suppose it works out in some way. Williams as a Heel has more potential for feuds because there are quite a few Faces in NXT UK. Amir Jordan will at least be on 205 Live to freshen it up, maybe even on NXT once he gets some traction. This match helped give Amir some edge before getting serious on NXT and 205 Live, and I could see him at least getting into some good feuds with Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, maybe even Swerve’s new crew he started. Both Kenny and Amir have possibilities, only time will tell who comes off more the Shawn Michaels, or if they’re more like the members of the Shield, each having equal success.

My Score: 8.2/10

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the NEW Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions!

Jimmy & Jey Uso walk out, the 312 day SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but also THE tag team champions of the WWE! They get the mics while shouldering the belts, and Jey welcomes Little Rock to the show! Jimmy says before getting the celebration on, everyone put their fingers up to thank the Tribal Chief, the Needle Mover, the Head of the Table, and the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, their cousin, Roman Reigns! Jey also thanks Big Uce to allow them to beat RKBRO all on their own. Thank you, Roman. Fans boo that bold faced lie, but Jey says he’ll get real and off script.

Those rocking with the Usos since day one, you know that two days ago marks 12 YEARS in the WWE. Fans do applaud that, that is a triumph. 12 years ago, the Usos walked out and never in a million years would Jey have thought they’d still be here after all that. For 12 years, the fans have cheered them, booed them, seen the ups and the downs. But that means that for 12 years, y’all watched these two grow up. That means for 12 years, all these plane rides, the miles on the road, the time being away from family, you know who was there for the Uso? Fans cheer because they know, it was all of us fans! Real talk.

But check this out. The world is crazy these days. Jey loves coming to the WWE and entertaining the fans. So from the bottom of their hearts, for their family, the Usos want to say thank you to the fans. Fans cheer that in thanks back. Jimmy takes a breath as the fans chant, “UCE! OH! UCE! OH!” Jimmy then says, “For the past 12 years, we’ve also realized that… We absolutely needed NOBODY~!” GOTTEE! All they needed were each other! They didn’t need you, you, or you! The Bloodline is drippin’ in all the gold! Look upon your undisputed! Unified! WWE Tag Team Champions!! Don’t boo them! Boo Randy for not being here!

Where is Randy? Home! He got bodied by the Usos! And Little Bro, got his ass crying like the kids last week. Riddle is looking at the true tag team! He the two, and #WeTheOnes! But here comes SHINSUKE NAKAMURA! He tells the Usos that he and his partners challenges them to a match for those tag titles! HE wanted to get them by himself but Nakamura asked to join. What? Well where is his partner? Peg Leg Pete, the dude who got busted? Rick, BOOOGS~? No, it’s THE BRO! Matt Riddle is teaming with the King of Strong Style! Will they get revenge on the Usos together? They rush the ring, and they brawl at the ropes!

Fans fire up, Jimmy sends Riddle down, Jey sends Nakamura down, but Riddle rushes right back in! He fights them both, but they throw him out! Nakamura gets back in, but he gets mugged, too! Riddle returns with a FLOATING BRO ATTACK! Fans fire up as Riddle and Nakamura get the Usos up! Nakamura throws Jimmy out, ROUNDHOUSE! Riddle DECKS Jey! The Usos grab up their gold and get outta there! Will the Usos be able to handle the #BrosOfStrongStyle?

 

SmackDown returns as Riddle and Nakamura talk backstage.

The Bro wonders what they should call themselves. Nakamura Bro? Kayla says they did look good out there, but how would Randy feel about this? Actually, this was Randy’s idea. and Nakamura is pleased. He may not be B0ogs, but Riddle and Nakamura will dominate. And Nakamura may not be Randy, but there’s potential for greatness here. Will these two becoming the ultimate

 

SmackDown Women’s Championship Contender’s Match: Ronda Rousey VS Raquel Rodriguez!

Last time was for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, but this to see if Big Mami Cool can earn another shot! Of course, backstage, we see Shotzi, Xia Li, Aliyah, Natalya and Shayna Baszler watching from the locker room. Shotzi complains that Raquel is getting another match with Ronda when she choked! Why are all of them getting passed over? Xia is undefeated in the WWE, so why isn’t she out there? Xia thinks about that, then storms out. Aliyah may be annoying but she has the fastest win in WWE at 3.16 seconds. Even she deserves a shot. Aliyah tells Shotzi to just shut up, then she storms out.

But Natty has more wins than any woman in WWE history! She is a living legend! If she had the same opportunities as Raquel, she’d be champion now! And Shayna, straight up, you’re a killer. Raquel has zero killer instincts. They are the best in the world yet here they are, letting another opportunity pass them by. So then, what’re they gonna do about it? Spades & Hart look at each other, is there an understanding between them and the wild card? Will they do something about this while Raquel faces Ronda?

SmackDown returns and Ronda makes her entrance. And now Shotzi, Natty & Shayna decide to go out there to stop this! Shayna & Natty go first, Shotzi has to get her helmet. But then the door is locked!? Shotzi gets shut out of her plan! By Aliyah! Payback! Back tot he ring, though, the match begins and Ronda dodges Raquel. Then she fires hands, but Raquel waistlocks and SLAMS Ronda! Raquel drags Ronda up but Ronda elbows free and throws kicks. Ronda goes up but Raquel holds her up! Only to end up in a HANGING ARMBAR! But Raquel drags Ronda up, only for Ronda to cradle! TWO, and Raquel kicks low.

Backstage interview with The New Day.

Megan asks Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods who their partner will be in tonight’s match. Uh, does Netflix give away the ending to Stranger things? Does Bad Bunny give away all the songs before the album drops? The point is, errybody, and they mean errybody, has been blowin’ up the phones of the NEW~ DAY~ Because they wanna fight the Brawling Brutes. With Big E out, this could be anyone joining them! Even Moon Knight! Or Max Moon! Or Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic. Or a fantastic beast. Or some dude off the streets! It could be anyone. Even Megan.

But what ya bois have is the element of surprise. They won’t go out there outnumbered. Tonight, they will take on and defeat those Brawling Brutes. BECAAAAAUSE~! NEW! DAY ROCKS! NEW! DAY ROCKS!

 

Mad Cap Moss posts a message to Happy Corbin.

“You spit in the face of Andre’s legacy. You tried to end my career. But you didn’t, cuz Mad Cap is built different. Corbin, get ready to see a side of me you’ve neve seen before. No jokes. No cap. Next week on SmackDown, I’m coming to WHOOP YOUR ASS!” Will Corbin wish he’d never even brought Moss up to SmackDown?

 

Los Lotharios VS Jinder Mahal & Shanky!

The Lethal Lovers are back in action, and also bring the Kiss Cam with them. They spot a lovely lady in the front row and give her kisses on the cheeks. But will Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo be kissing the mat against the Modern Day Maharaja and his towering sidekick? Or will they be blowing kisses to everyone with a win tonight?

SmackDown returns as Jinder & Shanky make their entrance. Or, maybe not? The music hits but Jinder is looking for Shanky. Shanky is jamming out to the theme song, but he should be going to gorilla! Well, the Lotharios flirty with ring announcer Samantha while they wait. Now Jinder & Shanky make their entrance, and Shanky is still jamming out. The teams sort out, and Carrillo starts with Shanky. They tie up, Shanky powers Carrillo to a corner but Carrillo goes up the ropes. The ref counts, Shanky lets go, and Carrillo leaps!

So much for Shanky’s good time! Garza & Carrillo snatch that win, and Jinder is upset with Shanky losing focus! They lost again because Shanky was too busy dancing! Shanky tells Jinder no more! Jinder storms off, and Shanky looks at Samantha. She smiles and the fans chant for “Shanky! Shanky!” as he does his Bollywood best! Is Shanky going to be his own man from now on?

 

Adam Pearce is visited by Max Dupri.

Max hopes Mr. Pearce has reached out to his legal team and verified the contract so that Maximum Male Models can begin recruiting. Isn’t it about time SmackDown unleashed Max Du-PRI? Well, yes, turns out it is legal and binding, Max is onboard. Say it right, they did this last week. Max Du-PRI! Well, Max can teach everyone how to say the name because he is officially on SmackDown. Oh, y’know what this means? That means the process of Maximum Male Models finding their first client is on. And by the way, Pearce doesn’t make the cut. Max heads out, but just who will he say is a fit for MMM?

 

Kevin Owens is here!

It’s a very special edition of The KO Show! Kevin promises a member of The Bloodline as his special guest! Will it be the Usos? Paul Heyman? The Tribal Chief himself? We find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Kevin has his own custom KO mic. Kevin welcomes us to this special edition of HIS show! And for the last few months, Kevin has been seeking the truth and dealing with a liar by the name of ELIAS! NOT EZEKIEL! ELIAS! At Hell in a Cell, Elias will regret showing his stupid, beardless face in the WWE! That brings Kevin to his guest tonight. There is a special reason why this is Kevin’s guest. It’s the locker room leader and close personal confidant of the Bloodline, SAMI ZAYN! Of course it’s Sami… Fans boo because now who is lying? But Sami and Kevin reunite after a long time apart, with a BIG hug!

Kevin and Sami are so happy to see each other, they look great. Sami’s flowing locks are amazing! Sami says last time, they had some bad blood, but they’re always up and down. They don’t even remember what it was about. But Sami’s been killing it here! He is the leader they sorely need. And what he’s doing for the Bloodline, it’s unbelievable. Oh, don’t sell yourself short. Kevin is doing great on Raw! Elias? Ezekiel? Uh, clearly the same person! C’mon! How does no one see it? They hug again because Kevin is touched that Sami understands. Is he crying? N-No… Just finally good to hear someone say it!

Everyone knows it’s Elias! But everyone plays along and it’s horrible! But these two always have each other’s back! Always. Well not always. No, always. But tonight, this is why Sami is Kevin’s guest. Kevin needs Sami to kinda drop what he’s doing on Smackdown to go to Raw so he and Kevin can call out all the liars! That starts with Elias. Let’s go. C’mon. Uh, look, Kev. Sami’s always got your back, but now is not a good time. He has a lot on hips plate leading SmackDown. They need him, the Bloodline needs him, it’s just not a good time, Uce. Uce? Did you just say, “Uce?” Did he? Yes. That’s weird. He’s been hanging out with the Usos so much, they’re rubbing off on each other.

This is the side Kevin forgot about Sami. He’s naïve. No he’ snot! Ye she is! Uce?! Sami is not actually in the Bloodline. Yes, but he’s an associate. No, no, you’re not. Frankly, Kevin is sorry to say this, but Sami is praising them, wearing their merch, he looks like a moron. Let’s just cut it out and listen to your real friend. Oh, real friend, huh? Moron, huh? Sami was being nice. Sami says Elias and Ezekiel are clearly different people. Brothers who don’t look like, there’s photos that prove it. Who is the moron? NO, SAMI IS MORON! They’re not different people! Kevin is a liar! Well Sami’s a moron! Liar! Moron! Liar liar pants on fire! TOO FAR! They’re not on fire!

Sami needs to snap out of it! If he’s so tight with the Usos, why did they leave him high ‘n’ dry on Raw? Sami is like this with them, right Then Kevin can call them out, and they won’t leave Sami high and dry. Ladies and gentlemen, the Bloodline! … Well, give them a sec. Then Kevin will say it louder. Ladies and gentlemen, THE BLOODLINE!! Still nothing. Kevin tells Sami that the reason they’re not coming out is because the Bloodline couldn’t care less about Sami. He’s sorry but that’s true. Sami looks around and says “Whatever, man. You don’t know what you’re talking about.” Sami leaves, but Kevin chases after. Forget them, come to Raw!

Sami SHOVES Kevin! Sami tells Kevin to leave him alone and go back to Raw without him. Sami has a locker room to lead! Kevin is speechless, and ring staff already pack up his set. Kevin gets mad at the staff and gives one a STUNNER! Kevin glares at the other guy and the other guy says to calm down. Kevin says he’s right. Then STUNNER! Kevin leaves the ring, but will he be able to forget what happened between him and Sami?

 

Ricochet & Drew Gulak VS Imperium!

The King of Flight and the Philly Stretcher team up to take on Der Ring General and Ludwig Kaiser! But will they get payback on GUNTHER together? Or will SmackDown and the mat become sacred?

SmackDown returns and Ludwig has the mic. “Ladies and gentlemen… The mat is sacred! Only one gives the rightful respect it truly deserves. DER RING GENERAL…! GUNTHER!” With that, Imperium makes their entrance and go to the ring. The teams sort out and Ludwig starts with Gulak. They tie up, Ludwig arm-drags, brings Gulak around and has the armlock. Ludwig grinds the shoulder but Gulak headlocks back. They end up on ropes, Ludwig turns things around to cravat and choke Gulak! The ref counts, Ludwig lets off and Gunther BOOTS Gulak down! Ludwig fires off stomps and hands, then tags Gunther!

Gunther brings Gulak up to TOSS Gulak out of the ring! Gunther shows no mercy while Ricochet checks on Gulak, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Gunther ha Gulak in a motorcycle stretch! Gulak fights up, but Gunther CHOPS him down! Gunther then stares down the Intercontinental Champion, then he stomps Gulak down. Tag to Ludwig and he waistlocks. Gulak reaches out for Ricochet, throws elbows, and fans fire up as he reaches again! Ludwig holds on, swings, but Gulak dodges! Ludwig scoops, Gulak escapes, tag to Ricochet! Ricochet fires off on Ludwig, whips, Ludwig reverses but Ricochet RANAS! Then he dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Gunther gets in and the ref tells him to go back. But that was just to distract, Ludwig rolls Ricochet up, TWO!

Ricochet JUMPING KNEES Ludwig! Ricochet stares Gunther down now, fireman’s carries, but Ludwig rakes eyes! Gulak tags in before Ludwig tosses Ricochet! Gulak fires off, Ludwig THROAT CHOPS! But Gulak boots! Ludwig blocks, “NEIN!” He ROCKS Gulak then HALF HATCH SUPLEX! Ludwig grinds, drags Gulak up, fans boo but Ludwig runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, Imperium wins!

Winners: Imperium, by pinfall

Ricochet gets back in to keep them from doing any more to Gulak, but he should worry about himself! Gunther BOOTS Ricochet out, Ludwig PENALTY KICKS Gulak again! Will Imperium soon reign over SmackDown?

 

Sami apologizes to the Usos.

He is sorry but he just feels Kevin said some truths. He isn’t sure he’s getting respect for what he’s putting in. They can tell him the truth. What do they think of Sami? What is he to them? Cuz here’s what he’s thinking. What if Sami joined the group? Not by blood or anything, but like an honorary member. Sure, honorary Uce works. Yeah, there we go! Sami says they’re smart, this is the right choice. Now, if they need anything, he’s got them. And if he needs anything, they have him. Got you, Uce! Peace! Sami is fired up, but is he just being strung along?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

For Memorial Day Monday, Riddle & Nakamura get a Championship Contenders Match against The Usos! If The Bro & The King of Strong Style can take down Jimmy & Jey, they’ll get their shot at the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships!

 

SmackDown celebrates Memorial Day early.

“They didn’t volunteer to die. They volunteered to defend values which make up what we call civilization.” – Ronald Regan

“What doe sit mean to be selfless? To have the courage to put all else first for a greater cause? In every generation, there are those who put everything before themselves. And this weekend, we honor them.” The men and women who fought for our freedom, from World War I to Desert Storm, Normandy to Afghanistan. Look back at the moments, the events, that defined America’s history. The struggles, the battles. Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Ronald Regan said that we honor their memory so that their pledges and sacrifices will be remembered.

We show our gratitude to those who shaped us, who guided us, and who ensured our values and freedom would live forever. We show reverence and respect. On this weekend, we say, “Thank you.”

 

Six Man Tag: The New Day & ??? VS The Brawling Brutes!

The numbers game has been in the favor of the Fight Night Boys after Big E’s horrible accident, but Woods & Kofi have found a way to turn things back around! But just who (who who who) is the third man, brother? We’ll find out, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Sheamus has a mic. “What’s the story? Now let me make one thing perfectly clear, yeah? It’s FIGHT! NIGHT! FIGHT! NIGHT! Every night!” But the New Day don’t want a fair fight! They won’t tell us who the mystery partner is, but Sheamus doesn’t care. They could bring out King Kong, Godzilla or Moby Dick. It won’t matter, because they’ll get a severe beatin’ from these Brawlin’ Brutes! It could be anyone in the world and they’d still lay out all three. And they’ll all be on bed rest right next to Big E. Ain’t that right, Ridge? Too bloody right! It won’t matter how big and tall they are, they’ll cut ’em root to stem, Right, Butch? Butch goes wild!

Sheamus says the truth is, these are two of the toughest brutes Sheamus has ever seen. New Day finds out they don’t rock, “NEW! DAY SUCKS!” But here come the New Day! Woods wants everyone to hold up a sec. Brawlin’ Brutes? Who are they? Off-brand Wrestle Buddies? Who is this dick they speak of? But Sheamus is right about one thing. Tonight IS fight night! But not 2v3, because Sheamus is right about something else: This will be an unfair fight. The New Day found a real physical specimen. They found a true freak of nature! A man who will steal Ridge’s girl, AND Butch’s Auntie at the same damn time!

So then, brutes, this man will not have any problem kicking Sheamus right in that ugly mug he calls a face. Good accent, Woods. No, don’t lie to him. He was more Blackbeard than anything. Then arrrr ya ready? So who (who who who) is it? It’s… DREW MCINTYRE! The Scottish Warrior knows Sheamus all too well and vice-versa! Will “Big D” McIntyre help Kofi & Woods layeth the smack DOWN on these brutes?

SmackDown returns once again and Woods starts with Butch! They rush each other, Dunne CLOBBERS Woods, DECKS Kofi, but just swipes at McIntyre. Woods whips but Dunne runs him over! Things keep moving, Woods hurdles then mule kicks! Woods CLUBS Dunne, runs, Kofi tags in and Woods hits a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Kofi PENALTY KICKS, Woods SLIDING LARITS Kofi IMPLODER SPLASH! LEG DROP to FIST DROP to SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Kofi brings Dunne right up, wrenches, tag back to Woods. Dunne gets away but the New Day dodges him to DOUBLE BULLDOG!

Woods rains down rights on Dunne, then brings him up. Dunne fishhooks Woods’ face! Dunne ROCKS Woods with a right, tags Sheamus, and Sheamus CLUBS Woods down. Sheamus stomps Woods, brings him up and gives him BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Sheamus goes all the way to nine, then tags Dunne so he can give Woods way m ore shots! Ridge then tags in, he drags Woods around and suplexes him into the ring! Cover, TWO! Ridge drags Woods up, whips him to ropes, but Woods ducks and dodges, Kofi tags in before the slide! ROLLIGN ELBOW, then FLYING AX HANDLE! Fans fire up with Kofi and he whips Ridge to a corner.

Ridge reverses, Kofi goes up and missile dropkicks! Dunne misses his chance to swipe at Kofi, and Kofi stomps Ridge! Tag to Woods, he stomps and it’s the good ol’ stampede! Dunne runs in but is sent right back out! And now the tag to McIntyre! Little Rock fires up as McIntyre joins in on the stampede! Tag to Kofi, McIntyre DECKS Dunne, and McIntyre whips Kofi in for a basement dropkick! Kofi claps it up, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” But Ridge pushes Kofi to a corner. Kofi boots back, Sheamus distracts, Dunne sucker punches Kofi! Ridge POUNCES Kofi, roars “FIGHT NIGHT!” and the brute shave control as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Dunne keeps Kofi from the corner! Kofi throws hands, Dunne holds on and whips Kofi into the brute corner! Forearm smash then tag to Ridge, but Ridge keeps Dunne from going after McIntyre. Ridge RAMS Dunne into Kofi, tag to Sheamus! POWERSLAM and Sheamus is up top, KING KONG KNEE! Cover, TWO! Sheamus tags Ridge back, they get Kofi up and Ridge ROCKS Kofi with a forearm. Tag to Dunne, they mug Kofi but Kofi fights back! Sheamus gets in, IRISH- NO! Kofi slips out to DDT! Fans fire up as Kofi and all the brutes are down! Kofi crawls, but Dunne trips Woods off the apron! Ridge trips McIntyre!

Ridge RAMS McIntyre into steps! Sheamus CLOBBERS Kofi, Alabama Lifts, ALABAMA SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kofi survives and Sheamus is shocked! Sheamus fishhooks Kofi’s face for the Dublin Smile, but Kofi fights up with body shots! Sheamus swings, into SOS! Both men are down and fans fire up! Kofi crawls, and McIntyre rises! Fans fire up for the hot tags to Ridge and McIntyre! McIntyre rallies on Ridge! McIntyre whips, CLOBBERS Ridge, then clinches in a corner for the OVEREHAD Belly2Belly! Dunne laps in, but into a clinch! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Dunne flounders out, McIntyre dodges Ridge to NECKBREAKER!

McIntyre kips up and fans fire up! McIntyre grins and waits on Ridge, but Dunne leaps on for a SLEEPER! McIntyre tosses Dunne out of the ring! Woods gets in, builds speed and he RWECKS Dunne with a dropkick! But Sheamus BROGES Woods! Kofi FLIES and takes out Sheamus! Fans are thunderous as McIntyre has Ridge! Ridge throat chops! Ridge scoops, but McIntyre fights free and shoves, to GLASGOW KISS! Then from the corner, “THREE! TWO! ONE!” CLAYMORE!! McIntyre tags to Woods so he can finish this! Woods goes up, tightrope walks, LIMIT BREAKER!! Cover, #DrewDay WINS!

Winners: The New Day & Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

Vengeance and vindication here in Little Rock! But New Day wants McIntyre to stick around to celebrate! Woods plays the trombone and Kofi gets the hips into it. They want McIntyre to take a turn! Fans fire up for it, and McIntyre figures why not. He does a strut, a shoulder shimmy, and a little spin around! #DrewDay roar in victory, have they all dealt with those Brawling Brutes once and for all?


My Thoughts:

This was actually a really fun episode of SmackDown here, though not without its strange choices. I feel like the meta of Shotzi’s promo escaped the writers. Why have Ronda VS Raquel so soon already after their previous match? Why  not have Raquel go against the Heels who criticized the booking? And of course it leads to an “impromptu” tag match, Raquel & Ronda getting a great win over Shayna & Natty. I do like that we got interaction between Ronda and Shayna. Maybe Shayna can step up and get her shot to feud with Ronda for a stretch? A little late to set anything up for Hell in a Cell, but maybe something for Money in the Bank? Ironically, that might’ve helped ticket sales but oh well.

I liked the opening segment of Usos giving us a work shoot of their heartfelt feelings that then raise their Heel heat. And I like that while Nakamura is without Boogs and while Riddle is without Randy, we’ll get these two trying for the tag titles together. We have already heard Roman is not defending his title(s) at Hell in a Cell, but maybe if Bros of Strong Style win on Monday, we get a last minute addition to Hell in a Cell for those tag titles. We also got a hilarious and amazing segment from Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn where they build both their stories of being delusional at the same time. That segment shows why those two should reunite and go for those tag titles very soon.

Moss has a good social media post promo, his return next week is going to be great. Max Du-PRI has a good segment with Pearce, and now that MMM is getting going, can’t wait to see who Max brings in and see how this goes. It’ll probably be a bit goofy but I suppose if it gives people screen time, there should be no complaints. I like that we got Imperium taking on Gulak and Ricochet. Gulak of course takes the loss but it was cool that Ludwig got the pin. He finally gets going on SmackDown, and there’s still ways for Gunther to get at the Intercontinental Championship. Too bad it’s not in time for Hell in a Cell. Maybe MITB will have one because duh, this title needs to be on a PPV again, and it sounds like this PPV needs more to it.

And of course, great stuff from The New Day. Great interview promo, good pre-match promos from them and The Brawling Brutes (I still hate how lazy Vince and team are in naming them), and naturally, it was McIntyre. We didn’t get as much between McIntyre and Sheamus as I was hoping for but that’s because Dunne being frantic and all over the place seems to take the focus of the match and the story. Naturally, #DrewDay wins because New Day needed to get even with the Brutes, and McIntyre needed to get going again here. But I feel like this feud is going to keep going. Maybe we get McIntyre VS Dunne? That’d be awesome stuff, at least.

My Score: 8.4/10

Bryan Danielson VS Matt Sydal!

The American Dragon had a scary spill just last week, but he looks just fine now. Will he kick Sydal’s head in to prove to the Jericho Appreciation Society he’s more than ready for Anarchy in the Arena? Or will Sydal’s third eye see an opening to exploit?

The bell rings and fans are already thunderous for “A E DUB!” as the two men stare down. Bryan and Sydal circle, they tie up, and Bryan arm-drags Sydal.

Sydal pries free but Bryan gets him for a BACKBREAKER! Sydal goes to ropes but Bryan brings him up to EuroUpper! Bryan has Sydal in the corner, brings him out to EuroUpper again! And again! Bryan gets the leg, turns Sydal over, and he hooks up the legs.

Sydal reaches out but Bryan grabs as the shoulders. Sydal resists so Bryan fishhooks his face! The ref counts, Bryan lets go, and rolls forward to get the head! Bryan fires off forearms then lets off, “Who’s the best?!” Fans fire up because it’s him! Bryan headlocks, but Sydal endures. Sydal powers out but Bryan runs him over!

KICK after KICK and Sydal flounders. Fans fire up and Bryan soaks it in. Bryan has Sydal in a corner, HEADBUTTS him, then hoists him up top backwards.

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Regal thanks commentary for having him again, and the American Dragon is on fire! Will he, Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz all get their revenge on the Jericho Appreciation Society?

 

The Hardy Boyz are- Wait.

That’s not Matt & Jeff, that’s Matt and Nick! The Young Bucks are taking that comment about being Hardy Boyz cosplayers to heart! And then they bring out Gangrel!? Sadly, Brandon Cutler is stuck as Lita.

The Young Bucks VS ???

Matt & Nick Jackson are taking on Matt & Jeff Hardy for Double or Nothing in a battle of brothers as well as generation defining tag teams. But will the Bucks be able to take this all seriously while mocking the Hardys? Or will Jon Cruz & Taylor Rust be the ones with the last laugh tonight?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Cruz. They circle, tie up, and Nick headlocks. Cruz powers out, Nick runs him over, then mocks Jeff’s dance. Things speed up, Cruz leaps but into an atomic drop! Nick triops Cruz and uses the leg splitting leg drop and basement dropkick! Tag to Matt, Nick DECKS Rust, and Matt puts Cruz in the corner. The Bucks set up, POETRY IN MOTION! Fans fire up for the picture perfect recreation! Matt scoop SLAMS Cruz, goes up top, and with the V1 fingers, Matt goes to the second rope. Tag to Nick, he gets Cruz up and now the V1 fingers! Elbow drop! Nick tags Matt back in and they bring Cruz up.

Double back suplex but Cruz lands out! Tag to Rust! Rust dropkicks Nick, dodges Matt and kitchen sink knees! Sobat and SCISSOR KICK on Matt! Rust runs, but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! The Bucks show their true colors, but Cruz tags in! He punches the Bucks, goes up top, but the Bucks get clear to DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Matt gets Cruz up, and he hits a TWIST OF FATE! Tag to Nick, he throws off the shirt and goes up top, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, the Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

It seems anything the Hardys can do, the Bucks can do better! But then they attack Gangrel! Seems he is part of them making an example to the Hardys! They get Gangrel down, but the REAL Hardys appear! “DELETE! DELETE!” The Bucks stand their ground as they stare down the Hardys, but they run into kicks! Cutler attacks! But then they turn their attention to him. Gangrel kicks Cutler and hits the IMPALER! And then a TWIST OF FATE from the real Matt Hardy! SWANTON BOMB for the real Jeff Hardy! Gangrel makes up with his old friends, but will the Hardys be able to DELETE the Elite?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“It wasn’t Adam Cole, it wasn’t Bobby Fish. It wasn’t the Young Bucks, it was you, Kyle O’Reilly. It was you who took out sting.” Darby wants a fight at Double or Nothing with Kyle, or else he’ll interfere with Cole’s match, the Young Bucks’ match, and he’ll just make that night a living hell. So let’s make it official: Darby Allin VS Kyle O’Reilly, Double or Nothing. Will #KillerKyle accept the Relentless One’s challenge?

 

Max Caster w Gunn Club VS Dante Martin!

Platinum Max and Angel Dorado faced off on the very first episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, and now here, just after AEW turns three years old, they meet again! But will it be a repeat of history? Or will Dante show how much he’s improved since that day? Caster has a rap, of course. “Acclaimed ‘n’ the Gunns, we the new hot thing. Dante’s out of the break, already in the ring. I’ma bend your knees like the shmoney dance. Man, you couldn’t get laid at the bunny ranch! Your girl told me that you such a bitch. I’ma put you on the shelf like your brother is! Top Flight’s ’bout to crash, boy! You getting beat by Acclaimed and the Ass Boys!”

Austin says they talked about this, don’t use that name. “LOS ANGELES!” No, VEGAS, stupid! Oh, right. LAS ANGE- NO!! Bowens gets the mic and says, LAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! But Dante springboards and takes out Caster & said Ass Boys! But then Billy Gunn CLOBBERS Dante and RAMS him into the steps! Billy then helps Caster get in the ring so this match can start. The ref reprimands and EJECTS rest of the club! Bowens can’t believe it, and Dante rolls Caster up! TWO!! Dante springs up but Caster KICKS the leg out! Caster stomps the leg again and again, then covers. ONE, but Caster hurries to get Dante back up.

Caster has the leg, Dante CLUBS him down, throws forearms then KICKS! Dante whips, Caster reverses and CLOBBERS Dante, to then GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Cover, ONE!! Rampage goes picture in picture as Caster stalks Dante. Caster drags Dante up but Dante throws body shots. Caster grabs hair! Dante knees low, runs up the corner, and leaps, but into Caster’s arms! Caster SLAMS Dante down, gets the leg and ties him up, FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK! Dante endures and reaches out, fans rally up, and Dante works to turn it over! Dante turns the leglock! Caster endures, but he gets the ROPEBREAK! The ref undoes the hold, Dante storms over but Caster trips him! Caster SMASHES the knee into the mat, then wraps Dante up with a leg inside the chinlock!

Dante endures so Caster shifts to focus on an arm. Dante fights up, Caster CLUBS him down. Caster whips Dante to the apron but Dante ROCKS him back. Dante springboards, but Caster BOOTS him down! Caster drags Dante in and snap suplexes! Caster covers, ONE, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns, Cater back hands then back suplexes Dante! Caster goes up the corner fast, aims and MIC- NOPE! Caster has to land on his feet as Dante moves! Dante elbows Caster, sunset flips, TWO! Caster gets the leg, steps through again but Dante kicks him away to O’Conner Roll on the rebound! TWO, and Dante springs up and over! Dante jumps over again, CLOBBERS Caster, and starts to rally! Fans fire up and Dante runs at the corner, but is put on the apron. Dante KICKS Caster, goes up top, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Dante hurries to the apron, fans fire up but Caster blocks the gamangiri. Dante HOTSHOTS, then resets! NOSEDIVE!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall

Dante avenges his loss on Elevation! Will this help Dante fly to the top of the ranks in the near future?

 

AEW looks closely at the Owen Hart Cup Men’s Finals.

Samoa Joe says that when it comes to facing someone like Adam Cole, you must take everything into account. Cole says he is in the finals with a man he truly admires. People look at the legacy Joe has left on this great sport and Cole finds himself where he has to beat that legacy. Cole says he is a world-class pro-wrestler, he ill be a franchise player for AEW for years to come, and it all starts with these finals! After Cole beats Joe and wins the Owen Hart Tournament, the world will remember Adam Cole BAYBAY. But Joe says as the ROH World Television Champion, Cole’s time is near.

 

The Men of the Year and Dan Lambert are in the ring.

Lambert says we live in crazy times, and there are very few things we can count on in this world. Death, taxes, and if you have bad acne, and a girlfriend whose CM Punk merch shirt is two sizes bigger than yours, you’re an AEW fan! If you need anything in the world of combat sports, come see Dynamite Dan. That’s what Scorpio did when he needed a new TNT Championship belt. These usually take six months to handcraft, but Dan called his buddy Ron at Red Leather Belts, and not only did he put this together in less than a week, but this is a masterpiece truly worthy of Scorpio Sky, LA’s favorite champion.

Ethan does the honors, and it is a GOLD strap with purple ribbon! The TNT Champion honors the Black Mamba, and Ethan says that now that Sky has a belt to match his talent, we can all finally be finished with the trash known as Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti! But speaking of, they and Frankie Kazarian are back on the tron. They hate to interrupt the celebration, but here is breaking news! A break in at the American Top Team HQ! Luckily, they’re on the scene! They bust in, keep people from calling authorities, and they see the trophies. They’ll take some of those. Oh hey, the “participation trophy” TNT belt! Kaz wants that belt!

Sammy says hold on, there’s something better. The BMF Championship! That is one of a kind and beautiful. You thinking what he’s thinking? Kaz sure hopes not. SamTay say they’ll “celebrate” with this belt. Sammy SMASHES the case open and they grab the BMF belt! And a few other belts, too. If Men of the Year want all these back, they’ll be in Vegas on Sunday. And bring VanZant, too. BMF: Be Mad, Fellas. Scorpio is FURIOUS! This has gone on way too long! If they want their mixed trios match, then those three scumbags against the Men of the Year & PAIGE VANZANT is happening!

But here’s the kicker: If MOTY win, then Sammy and Frankie are BARRED from challenging for the TNT Championship! They’ve been begging for this ass kicking a long time, and they’ll get it at Double or Nothing! And after that, they are DONE! But now that SamTay & the Heavy Metal Rebel have the match they wanted, will they get the revenge they wanted, too?

 

Mark Henry speaks tonight’s main eventers.

He starts with Ruby about what this tournament means to her. These last couple of months, Ruby’s been doubting herself, second guessing herself, losing the confidence she had when she arrived in AEW. Then she earned her shot in this tournament. This could be a turning point in her career, even if she has to beat her friend and whatever version of herself she’s bringing to the ring. Kris says that it seems everyone “needs” to win this. But Ruby needs to understand Kris has been here since day one, and what does she have to shown for it? No title, a blown out knee, and a back-up plan to the prestigious tournament. And all her friends have turned on her.

So Ruby needs to understand Kris isn’t letting this get away from her like all the other opportunities. No one, not friend or enemy, can stop her! Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Runaway’s destination be Double or Nothing? Or will Statlander’s new form take the form of an Owen Hart Cup finalist?

Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament: Ruby Soho VS Kris Statlander!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle and tie up. Kris headlocks, hits the takeover, but Ruby keeps her shoulders up. Ruby headscissors, squeezes tight, but Kris kips free. Ruby sweeps, Kris kips up and sweeps back! Ruby rushes after the bad leg but Kris has the ropes. The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and fans are dueling hard. The two tie up, Kris headlocks but Ruby powers up to power out. Kris runs Ruby over and fans fire up. Kris runs, Ruby drops then shoots in to waistlock. Kris throws Ruby off and flexes! Things speed up again, Kris runs Ruby over, covers, ONE! Kris drags Ruby up to wrench and whip to the corner.

Ruby goes up and over, shows a punch, but she pulls it back! Kris gets in Ruby’s face about literally pulling punches, and the two tie up again. Kris monkey flips but Ruby comes back to wheelbarrow and arm-drag! Ruby runs in at the corner, Kris dodges but Ruby FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Kris blocks the next arm-drag to ROCK Ruby with a forearm! Ruby KICKS the leg, Kris CLOBBERS Ruby! Fans fire up while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Kris glares at Ruby, drags her up, and suplexes. Kris holds Ruby up for a count of 10, then 20, before the SLAM! Cover, TWO! Kris drags Ruby up, wraps on a chinlock then makes it a cobra clutch! Ruby endures, fights up, throws body shots, and runs, into Kris’ arms! Kris SLAMS Ruby down, then SPLASHES! Cover, TWO! Kris grows annoyed but she rallies the fans up. Kris drags Ruby up, scoops, but Ruby slips out to roll Kris up! TWO, and Kris scoops Ruby to SLAM her again! Kris drags Ruby up, brings her around, but Ruby turns back suplex into CROSSBODY! Ruby bounces off and the ref starts a standing count.

Kris sits up at 3, Ruby follows at 4, and they go after each other at 5 with forearms. Ruby ROCKS Kris, Kris ROCKS Ruby, and back again! They stand, throw more forearms, then Ruby HEADBUTTS! Ruby runs, but the monkey flip is bounced off the ropes! Ruby tries a DDT but Kris throws her off! Ruby comes back, into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Rampage returns to single picture as fans rally up. Kris whips Ruby to a corner and uppercuts! Kris then fireman’s carries Ruby up the ropes! Ruby fights with elbows, slips around and SUPER STEINERS! Kris flounders, Ruby runs, but into a POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!!

Kris can’t believe it! Ruby survives and she gets to ropes while fans fire up! Kris runs in at the corner but Ruby dodges! Kris’ bad arm hits buckles! She still fireman’s carries, “This is Awesome!” but the bad arm holds the trophy lift back! NO FUTURE! But Kris tumbles out of the ring! Ruby hurries to get Kris up but Kris is almost dead weight. Ruby gets Kris on her feet but Kris shoves her away. Kris puts Ruby on the apron but Ruby FLYING RANAS back! Ruby puts Kris in, hurries up the corner, but Kris rushes in! Ruby ROCKS Kris first, reels her in by the arm, TORNADO ARMBAR DDT!! Then KIMURA!!

Kris endures as Ruby cranks on the arm, and Kris reaches out for the ROPEBREAK! Ruby drags Kris up again, turns her, but no neckbreaker as Kris pushes free. Ruby goes up, but no Deadly Nightshade! Kris has the Electric Chair, but Ruby tries to bend back. No Poison-Rana, WHIPLASH INTO BUCKLES! O’Conner Roll, CHAOS THEORY!! And then the fisherman, DRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?! Ruby survives and no one can believe it! Kris snarls, she drags Ruby up, and she CLOBBERS her point blank! Kris gets the legs and the arms, SPIDE- NO! Ruby kicks and kicks and kicks! Kris staggers, Ruby sweeps the legs! Oklahoma Roll, RUBY WINS!!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

Tony Schiavone gets in the ring to interview the winner, but Britt Baker shows up first! She has a mic but Ruby tells everyone to cut the music. Britt can put the mic down. Everyone’s listened to Britt over and over, no one wants to listen to her anymore! Ruby gets it, the fans are upset she win. She did what she had to do to win the match. But Ruby needs to tell Britt something. Kris is Ruby’s friend, she loves and respects her, but look what she did. And Ruby hates Britt, so she’s gonna hurt her. Ruby has been telling Britt since Grand Slam that Britt has a receipt coming. Ruby’s cashing it in at Double or Nothing! Britt just smiles, but will she still be smiling after the Owen Hart Cup Women’s Finals?


My Thoughts:

A great episode here for Rampage, especially as a go-home. Great opening contest out of Bryan VS Sydal, wild to think that these guys only faced off once in ROH and missed each other in WWE, because this felt like they’d been going back and forth for years. Bryan wins, of course, for the momentum going into the Anarchy in the Arena 10 Man. Could be a sign that someone on Blackpool Combat Club & Friends is taking the loss to JAS. Great cosplay by the Bucks, that was a really fun match of them squashing Cruz and Rust. Also good to see Rust somewhere after WWE cut him way too soon, too. Great to see Gangrel, and of course the Hardys get their own bit. Bucks VS Hardys at Double or Nothing could go either way but I’m leaning towards Hardys.

They didn’t advertise Caster VS Dante but this was a great surprise. Obviously good stuff within the Acclaimed Gunn Club faction, and we got a very good match. Caster won the Elevation match they highlighted, Dante wins this one, maybe they’ll give this a tiebreaker match down the line. Scorpio Sky having a purple ‘n’ gold TNT belt is a great choice, and then an honestly genius move from SamTay & Kaz to steal some of the belts American Top Team “can’t replace.” A Mixed Trios is actually better than just 2v2, and I do like the stipulation of blocking Kaz and Sammy as contenders. It does give it away just a little that SamTay & Kaz win, but I bet Ethan takes the loss. PVZ isn’t being brought in to take the pin and no one is going to pin the TNT Champion unless it’s for the belt.

Great promo vignette from Cole and Joe, and I’m still leaning towards Cole winning. Great promos from Ruby and Kris going into their match, it really added to the fire in that main event, which was a great main event. Ruby using what Velvet told her was good story stuff, but I didn’t expect fans to boo it as hard as they did. Kris is a fan favorite, so maybe she comes around to get a title shot, like the TBS Championship after Jade beats Jay. I did like Ruby’s promo to end the show, shutting Britt up before she can begin. But Ruby being so adamant about getting that fire back, pretty sure she’s losing to Britt.

My Score: 8.6/10
