PLAY BY PLAY

MizTV opens the night!

The Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century is already in the ring, and Miz welcomes us to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show and his very special Money in the Bank edition! His guests are Raw’s representatives for that match. And as a winner of the MITB contract twice and successfully having cashed in twice, Miz is an MITB master! And therefore, his first guest, his best friend and partner in crime is going to win! He’s talking about Johnny Drip Drip! Morrison says that’s right, the D R I P is gonna rain pain on the fools! America’s Moist Wanted is gonna climb that ladder like a water spout, take that contract and pour it out, and give all the “aquaholics” what they want: Morrison as El Senor Dinero en de Banko!

Miz says COOOORRECT! But their next guest is the man Miz cashed in on just earlier this year, Drew McIntyre! The Scottish Warrior makes his entrance and admits Miz is right. Miz is why McIntyre has a love-hate relationship with the MITB contract. Miz did cash in, after McIntyre defeated five of the bets in the Elimination Chamber, and after Bobby Lashley attacked from behind. But ever since, McIntyre has been fighting his way back to the top. It won’t stop until McIntyre wins and cashes in on whatever champion of whatever brand he chooses! But since we’re going to Texas, let’s talk about the Alamo! Did you know that McIntyre’s a distant relative of Davey Crockett?

What? Really? Yes, through his great, great, great great grandma, Miriam McIntyre IV! McIntyre and Crockett are known for legendary stories. McIntyre will make a legendary story at MITB. If Miz wheels himself out to the ring, the legend will be of when McIntyre shove Morrison’s head up Miz’s ass! And just like Davey, McIntyre would rather die in Texas than surrender! Well look here splash hole! You can kick the ocean, but all you’re gonna get is wet! But without an introduction, here comes the One and Only! Ricochet struts to the ring and Miz is annoyed. Ricochet is  as rude as he is reckless. What Ricochet did last week was awe inspiring but also irresponsible.

And for those who missed it, Miz cues up the replay. Ricochet springboards from ring to barrier to crossbody Morrison to the floor! Miz says Ricochet got lucky it was a double count-out. That could’ve cost both men their careers! Explain yourself, Ricochet! Ricochet says he’s here to admit he’s still a bit shook, but he knows so is Morrison. That last week was a taste of what Ricochet is willing to do to get the MITB contract. He’ll even use Miz’s wheelchair as a battering ram if he has to. Because Ricochet is the R I C O C H E T, and he breaks it down with a dance. Powerful words, dry one. But can you back those words up against the Flood Stud?

Bro… Here comes Matt Riddle! His busted foot is still wrapped up but he scoots to the ring and kicks off the sandals before climbing. Miz says maybe Riddle can enlighten them with his notable yet doomed attempt to compete on Randy Orton’s behalf. Wait, what is he doing up at the top of the ladder? What, isn’t this what everyone’s supposed to be doing? Isn’t this the MITB edition of Miz TV? And whoa, Riddle’s really high right now. And sad, too. His foot’s better, but he let his bro down. Riddle is dedicating his win at the PPV to his bro, Randy Orton! He’ll make Orton proud, wherever he is. And then they’ll go for some ‘ritos and play games-

SHUT UP! Why hasn’t Orton kicked Riddle in the head yet?! Why would he? They’re best buds. McIntyre respects Riddle ,but Miz says not to enable and encourage him! Miz can’t wait Jinder Mahal rag doll McIntyre tonight and send him- Wait, now AJ Styles & Omos head out there? Styles says as a matter of fact, Miz doesn’t speak for everyone! Styles was robbed of his chance in MITB! ROBBED! Orton dropped out of the Last Chance match, and therefore, it shouldn’t have been a Triple Threat. It should’ve been 1v1, McIntyre VS Styles! But no no no, had to have a Triple Threat! A match with Riddle and McIntyre that Styles was not pinned in! So if anyone deserves to be in this match still, it’s Styles.

And it was Riddle who got pinned, so this is all Riddle’s fault! Riddle says hey to Skipper. He looks cute and little down there, like a rabbit. And Omos is almost as tall as Riddle on the ladder. High five? Nope, Omos shoves the ladder over! Riddle lands on the bad foot! Then Omos folds the ladder and TOSSES it out of the ring! Styles has Omos stand down, Morrison moves Miz to a corner, and then Styles KICKS Riddle in the foot! Ricochet gets in Styles’ face, as does McIntyre. Omos steps up to McIntyre, Morrison sucker punches Ricochet! Morrison whips but Ricochet reverses to send Morrison out! McIntyre helps Riddle up, Omos comes back in, McIntyre CLOBBERS Omos!

Miz can’t believe what’s going on as Ricochet triangle jump dropkicks Morrison! Ricochet grabs a Drip Stick and BREAKS it! Miz is furious but Morrison will be the one to settle things with Ricochet, after the break!

 

Ricochet VS John Morrison w/ The Miz!

Raw returns and we run it back for the King of Flight and the Moist Must-See! Will there be a true winner this time as MITB draws closer?

The bell rings and the hands fly! Ricochet ROCKS Morrison, body shots and CHOPS, then DECKS him with a right! Ricochet whips Morrison to a corner, runs in to hit a clotheslines, and Morrison falls!

Ricochet whips Morrison to another corner and hits another clothesline! Ricochet keeps on Morrison with a scoop and SLAM, then another elbow drop! Cover, TWO! Miz coaches Morrison but Ricochet tells him to shut it. Ricochet throws a forearm, then digs a knee into Morrison while putting on the chinlock.

Morrison endures, fights up, pries the hold but Ricochet CLUBS him down! Ricochet brings Morrison back up but Morrison DECKS him with a right of his own! Morrison stomps Ricochet to a corner, lets off as the ref counts, but CLUBS him back down! Morrison brings Ricochet around by his legs, to ROPE GUILLOTINE! Ricochet gasps and sputters as he scrambles away, but Morrison wraps on a headlock. Morrison grinds Ricochet down, hooks an arm and drives in elbows. Miz cheers Morrison on as he leans on Ricochet. Ricochet endures, even as Morrison shifts to an inverted cravat. The ThunderDome rallies as Ricochet fights back but Morrison KICKS Ricochet down!

Morrison KICKS Ricochet to a corner, brings him around but Ricochet throws forearms and CHOPS! Morrison mule kicks, turns Ricochet and hits a NECKBREAKER! Morrison grins at the camera as he covers, TWO! Morrison keeps on Ricochet with another chinlock but Ricochet endures. Ricochet reaches for ropes but Morrison wraps him up in a half straitjacket stretch! Ricochet fights up, throws elbows but Morrison throws knees! Morrison ROCKS Ricochet with a right, brings him around and whips to ropes. Ricochet reverses, breaks free and then RANAS Morrison out of the ring! Morrison regroups with Miz, Ricochet builds speed, but Morrison and Miz get out of the way!

Morrison takes a Drip Stick, Ricochet avoids the spray, and uses the wheelchair to handspring over Miz! Morrison blocks the rana to BARRIER BOMB Ricochet! Miz says that’s what Ricochet gets as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Morrison fires off kicks and fast hands on Ricochet in the corner. The ref counts, Morrison lets off at 4, but Ricochet ROCKS him right back! Ricochet throws hands, Morrison shoves then trips him up to float around to do some ground ‘n’ pound and then a double stomp! Miz applauds but he’s the only one. Ricochet ducks the knee to roll Morrison up, TWO! Ricochet waistlocks to an O’Conner Roll, TWO! Ricochet CHOPS Morrison, throws hands, then whips Morrison to ropes. Morrison reverses but Ricochet hits a KNEE SMASH! But he swings into a STANDING SPANISH FLY!? Cover, TWO!!

Miz is furious but Morrison keeps on Ricochet with elbows! Morrison rolls through to turn Ricochet over and trap his arms! Morrison grins as he twists Ricochet up with a hammerlock and half nelson. Morrison throws forearms into ribs, but Ricochet manages to kick from below! Ricochet is free, gets up, but Morrison RAMS him into a corner! Morrison fires off shots, lets off as the ref counts, and then runs corner to corner. Morrison blocks a boot but not the second one! Ricochet runs, tilt-o-whirls, and TORNADO DDT’s! Both men are down and Miz panics! Miz coaches Morrison up but Ricochet rises first!

Ricochet throws forearms, elbows, body shots, and a DISCUS LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Morrison is still in this but Miz panics! Ricochet aims from a corner but Miz sprays him! The ref reprimands Miz, Ricochet kicks but Morrison blocks to wrench and drag Ricochet down to a Dragon’s Lair cradle! TWO!! Ricochet narrowly escapes, but Morrison gets him with an Eddy Gordo kick! Morrison snapmares Ricochet to KICK him in the back, then runs in to KNEE Ricochet against the ropes! Ricochet is stuck, Morrison slingshots, but Ricochet gets away! Morrison elbow drops the apron and staggers back up. Ricochet runs in and FLIES for a FALLING CROSSBODY!!

Miz can’t believe what he saw but it seems Morrison turned that around into his own move! Morrison crawls to the ring, Miz is blocking Ricochet! The count is 10, Morrison wins!!

Winner: John Morrison, by count-out

The Miz was a roadblock and that helps Johnny Drip Drip win! Will the “master” of the MITB use tactics like this and more to help Morrison be dripping with gold?

 

Jinder Mahal arrives by motorcycle.

The Modern Maharaja impresses his compatriots, Shanky & Veer, and Kevin Patrick interviews Mahal about his match with McIntyre. Mahal and McIntyre were close. They were tag partners and even friends. McIntyre was even there when Mahal bought this lovely motorcycle to celebrate his world title defense. Mahal texted McIntyre about going for a ride together on their motorcycles, but McIntyre took three days to reply, and simply said, “Sorry, bro, 2 busy.” McIntyre did not have the decency to write out “T O O,” he just used the number two! McIntyre thinks Mahal is better than him!

Mahal knows McIntyre has already qualified, but Mahal should’ve been included in the MITB race. That is why Mahal demanded this match! Mahal has always been better than McIntyre, and he will prove that tonight! Will Mahal get back at McIntyre for the apparent slights and disrespect?

 

Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler and Reginald talk backstage.

They’re all in agreement that they shouldn’t have to have this tag match alongside Eva Marie and “Doudrop,” but Reggie says Alexa Bliss is in the shadows! They turn around, and she’s gone? Shayna has had it up to here with this! Reggie is a fully- Well, mostly grown man, and he’s scared of shadows? Get it together! Nia says Shayna should stop. Reggie’s been through enough. They just need to get through the match. But as they leave, Alexa returns! Will Alexa and the other entries in the Women’s MITB match be any more united in this epic 8 Woman Tag?

 

Nikki Cross talks with Naomi and Asuka at gorilla position.

Naomi loves Nikki’s new look, name and everything! This is a #GlowUp! Asuka’s always wanted to team with a superhero! Nikki thanks them for that, but points out that she’s not a hero like Black Widow. She’s Almost a Superhero! But she’s finally started believing in herself and has never been more successful! Now, she has her chance to win the MITB Ladder Match! Nikki knows there are those who don’t always have confidence in their abilities, but if they believe in themselves, who knows what they can do? Naomi is glad for Nikki’s new confidence, but Ash needs to not get her hopes up. Naomi is winning! No, Asuka says for the second year in a row, SHE is winning!

Tension is rising between them, but Nikki’s music hits! Nikki feels like she’s coming to save the day! See you ladies out there! Wonder Woman spin and away~! But then Alexa walks in and says they all better lower their expectations for MITB. Is that a subtle threat to her teammates?

8 Woman Tag: Asuka, Naomi, Nikki Cross & Alexa Bliss VS Eva Marie, “Doudrop” Piper Niven, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax w/ Reginald!

The Empress, the Glow, the Almost Superhero and the very Twisted Ms. Bliss are going to take on some of the most formidable women in WWE today, and the #EvaLution. But with everything going on between teammates, which team falls apart first?

Raw returns as the duo formerly known as #BlissCross are joined by their teammates. Then the Queen of Spades, Irresistible Force, and their sommelier make their entrance together, followed by Eva and “Doudrop.” Piper reluctantly takes Eva’s robe for her as they join the others in the ring. The teams sort out and Piper starts with Naomi. They circle, but then Eva tags herself in. Dysfunction already as Eva warms up and ties up with Naomi. Eva puts Naomi in a corner, but Naomi shoves her away. Naomi stares down with Piper but Eva sucker punches Naomi! Naomi gets up in a huff and Eva hurries to tag out to Piper!

Piper gets in, Naomi dropkicks her out of the ring! Naomi scares off the others, and PLANCHAS onto Nia and Shayna! Asuka comes in around the way. Eva moves and Piper takes the HPI ATTACK! Nikki flies in, Eva dodges and Piper takes the crossbody! Eva blows kisses o the fans, but turns around into a SCREAMING Alexa! Eva falls out of the ring in fear and Alexa smiles. Will the role model be able to compose herself while Raw goes to break?

Raw returns again and Piper blocks kicks but Alexa throws forearms. Piper ROCKS Alexa, whips her to ropes, but Alexa dodges and is a spider on the ropes! Nikki tags in and rushes Piper, but Pier turns wheelbarrow into a TOSS! Piper drags Nikki up but Nikki jawbreakers and dropkicks back! Tag to Asuka and Asuka KICKS away on Piper! Piper blocks a kick to HEADBUTT Asuka down! Piper staggers, reaches for her corner, and tags in Nia. Piper stands Asuka up, Piper and Nia run, and they SANDWICH Asuka with their body attacks! Cover, ONE!! Asuka survives, but Nia whips her to a corner. Nia runs corner to corner to SPLASH Asuka and shove her down!

Nia runs to drop an elbow! Cover, TWO! Asuka survives again but Nia drags her up. Nia tags in Shayna and they mug Asuka. The ref counts, Shayna lets off to bring Asuka to a cover, ONE! Asuka shakes her head but Shayna rains down rights! Shayna lets off but Asuka kicks from below. Shayna grabs a foot to twist the ankle! Asuka endures but Shayna GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! Shayna keeps her eyes from looking at Alexa as she taunts Naomi and Nikki. Shayna gets Asuka up, Eva tags herself in! Eva gets Asuka up for stomps in the corner, then she tags out to Nia. Nia stands Asuka up to scoop and SLAM! Cover, TWO! Asuka survives but Nia clamps on a cobra clutch!

Nia thrashes Asuka around but Asuka endures. Asuka’s team rallies up, and she stands to throw hips and a jawbreaker! Nia staggers, but she DECKS Nikki and swings on Naomi! Nia stands Asuka up but Asuka fires off body shots! Nia HEADBUTTS Asuka down! Wait, Alexa is hypnotizing Reggie! Shayna can’t snap him out of it and he gravitates towards Alexa. So Shayna trips Alexa off the apron and throws her into barriers! That worked! Meanwhile, Nia and Asuka brawl, and Nia CLOBBERS Asuka with a clothesline! Reggie gets himself back to the friendly corner as Nia gets Asuka up. Nia whips Asuka over but Asuka DECKS Piper!

Asuka swings on Shayna, dodges Nia, and Nia POSTS herself! Eva tags in and stomps Asuka down! Eva gets Asuka up but Asuka fires off hands! Eva ducks, and tags out to Shayna! Shayna rushes in but Asuka hits an armbar takedown! Shayna clasps hands, turns things around and gets an ARMBAR! Asuka clasps hands, makes it a cover, TWO! Hot tag to Naomi! Asuka gets Shayna around, Naomi springboards, FLYING CHUCK to GERMAN SUPELX! Asuka plays defense but Piper manages to knock her down onto the cover! Piper saves the day, then CANNONBALLS into Naomi in the corner! Nikki tags in as Asuka hits a CODE BREAKER on Piper!

Shayna KNEES Asuka but Nikki CROSSBODIES! Cover, but Eva breaks it! Eva drags Nikki up but Nikki saves Eva out! Nia tags in, Nikki gets Shayna for the tilt-o-whirl La Magistrol, but the ref points out who is legal! Nia drags Nikki up, fireman’s carries, but Nikki fights free with forearms! Nia shoves Nikki, Nikki dodges and comes in, but Nia catches crossbody to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, Nia and team win!

Winners: Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Piper Niven & Eva Marie, by pinfall

But again, Eva Marie takes all the credit! Nia wants to hurt Eva, Shayna wants to let her, and Piper wants to wash her hands of this. Will anything ever deflate the ego of the #EvaLution?

 

Bobby Lashley, MVP and the ladies still party.

But Kevin Patrick walks in and asks MVP and Lashley why they changed the match of Lashley VS Woods into a tag match to take on The New Day? MVP can’t understand how Kevin keeps getting in here! The next time Kevin wants to talk with Lashley, make an appointment! But to answer the question, it is that Woods doesn’t deserve to be 1v1 with the WWE Champion! The last time it happened, it didn’t go that well for Woods, anyway. Now to make this very clear, MVP has had one of the highest honors in his career to stand in Lashley’s corner. But he is not one to be disrespected, either! MVP simply wanted to talk with Kofi last week, and Kofi assaulted him!

Worse than that, Kofi disrespected the All Mighty Lashley. Lashley says he eviscerated McIntyre and Woods in back to back HIAC matches, so he took his vacation. But tonight, he sends the New Day on a permanent vacation! Kofi called Lashley soft!? There’s not a soft bone on Lashley’s body! It is ridiculous that Kofi thinks he’ll win at MITB, so Lashley is going to take all those words and shove them down Kofi’s throat! He’s ending the pipe dream and he’s hurting Kofi, because this is STILL the Hurt Business, and that is what they do! The ladies mockingly say “bye~” to Kevin as he leaves, but will they be saying bye to Lashley should things not go their way?

 

Mustafa Ali VS Mansoor!

The Beacon of Light has been trying to guide the young Star of Saudi Arabia, but he’s doing it with backhanded tactics. Will Mansoor give Mustafa a backhand of his own as they finally go 1v1 tonight?

Raw returns as Mansoor makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. Mustafa avoids a leg trip, wrenches and wristlocks, but Mansoor handsprings and wrenches back! Mustafa rolls, slips through, armlocks and arm-drags Mansoor to a grounded hold. Mansoor fights up, rolls back, but Mustafa headlocks. Mansoor puts Mustafa in a corner, lets off at 4, and is ready for Mustafa to come back. Mustafa pulls hair and puts Mansoor in the corner! The ref counts, Mustafa trips Mansoor and then says, “You cut every corner that you can!” Mansoor says he won’t be embarrassed, and he ties up with Mustafa again.

Mustafa headlocks, Mansoor powers out, but Mustafa runs him over. Cover, ONE, and Mansoor avoids a takedown! But Mustafa arm-drags from below to get a chinlock! Mustafa says you don’t let someone up off the mat. Mansoor fights up, endures the grind, throws body shots, and powers out to CLOBBER Mustafa with an elbow! Mansoor shouts at Mustafa to get up so Mansoor can teach him a lesson! Mustafa seems to like the fire in Mansoor, and he does get up. Mansoor blocks the clothesline, swings Mustafa alone to CLOBBER and CHOP him! Mansoor whips then atomic drops to a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Mansoor seethes but he’s after Mustafa right away with a whip. Mustafa kicks Mansoor but Mansoor ENZIGURIS! Mustafa falls, his foot gets stuck in the ropes! The ref and Mansoor work to free Mustafa, and they get him out. Mustafa clutches the leg, but it’s a fake-out! He rolls Mansoor up and WINS!

Winner: Mustafa Ali, by pinfall

“I told you! The high road only gets you so far!” Mansoor is furious with Mustafa but Mustafa says to stop listening to the heart and think with your mind! Which will Mansoor listen to when it comes to his path as a WWE superstar?

 

Backstage interview with Drew McIntyre.

How does McIntyre respond to Mahal claiming McIntyre took his opportunity in the MITB ladder match? Oh, Mahal’s opportunity, huh? Yeah, well, McIntyre heard about the complaints regarding their text messages, and McIntyre has opinions on that, too. But at least Mahal is willing to fight McIntyre in the ring. Nothing is given here, everything is taken! Now take his claymore sword, for example. It is a family heirloom and it means the world to him. But did you know the true story of this sword? McIntyre says this sword was in fact made from the tooth of the Loch Ness Monster!

Once upon a time, Nessie terrorized a village, would eat up their fisherman, and was just an all around “salty bitch.” But a brave Scottish Warrior stepped up to the edge of the Loch, cracked his neck and shrugged his shoulders, knowing it was going to go down! He felt it from head to plums, and he dove in and swam to come fact to face with the beast! The warrior did the biggest go-behind, got a rear naked choke, worked up that long neck and shouted, “WHOA, NESSIE!” He saw an opportunity and Claymore kicked the tooth right out of Nessie’s mouth! And then the two were friends and respected each other.

Nessie left the town alone, and told that warrior in her thick yet angelic and feminine Scottish accent, “Lad, if you take this here tooth and make a sword out of it, you’ll live a very successful life, and grow a manly, manly beard. And one day, you will defeat Jinder Mahal on this very day, and go on to Fort Worth, Texas, and win the Money in the Bank ladder match!” McIntyre smiles at his cleverness and then heads to the ring! Will McIntyre slay the Maharaja the way he did The Beast here in the ThunderDome?

Drew McIntyre VS Jinder Mahal w/ Shanky & Veer!

Raw returns as Mahal and his men make their way to the ring. The bell rings and McIntyre circles with Mahal. They tie up, go around, and McIntyre puts Mahal on ropes but Mahal puts McIntyre in a corner. McIntyre turns it around, the ref has them separate, and then they go again. Mahal waistlocks, headlocks, but McIntyre powers out. Mahal rams shoulders, McIntyre comes back to run Mahal over! McIntyre demands Mahal get up and Mahal says McIntyre isn’t better than him. Mahal resets, they tie up and McIntyre headlocks now. Mahal powers out, McIntyre ducks and dodges then follows to run Mahal over again!

McIntyre stalks Mahal but Mahal kicks low and elbows him back! Mahal bumps McIntyre off buckles, stomps him down, throws haymakers an clubbing shots, but stops as the ref counts. McIntyre stands, Mahal whips him corner to corner, but McIntyre comes back to CLOBBER Mahal! Veer & Shanky are worried as McIntyre fires off hands and CHOPS on Mahal! McIntyre brings Mahal out to SLAP him, but Mahal knees low! Mahal CLUBS McIntyre, SLAPS him back, but McIntyre knees and fires off haymakers! The ref has to back off the windmill but Mahal is dazed. McIntyre gets Mahal up but Mahal blocks a suplex to give a suplex!

Both men are down but Mahal gets up first. Mahal kicks McIntyre right in the head! And then again! McIntyre staggers up, Mahal runs, but into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Mahal falls out of the ring but McIntyre pursues! Veer & Shanky stand in his way, and Mahal throat chops McIntyre! Mahal suplexes McIntyre onto the announce desk! McIntyre writhes while Mahal leaves him behind, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Mahal grinds McIntyre down in the ring with a chinlock. McIntyre fights but Mahal CLUBS and KNEES him down! Mahal wraps the chinlock on again but McIntyre still fights up. McIntyre throws body shots, CHOPS free, and then CHOPS again! McIntyre whips Mahal to ropes but Mahal reverses, only for McIntyre to kick him! McIntyre runs but into a JUMPING KNEE! Cover, TWO! Mahal is furious as McIntyre survives, but Mahal brings him up to CLUB him! Mahal chokes McIntyre on the ropes, but he lets off as the ref counts 4. McIntyre sputters, Mahal kicks him down! Mahal has McIntyre in a corner, CLUBS and digs his knee in, but again lets off at 4.

Mahal grins as he brings McIntyre up to CLUB him again. Mahal ROCKS McIntyre with rights, whips him corner to corner hard, and McIntyre bounces off the buckles. Mahal CLUBS McIntyre again and again, then taunts him as he throws hands. McIntyre gives Mahal a GLASGOW KISS! Mahal falls over and McIntyre seethes as he stands back up. McIntyre rallies on Mahal with big clotheslines! McIntyre whips then OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Mahal again! And AGAIN! Mahal writhes but McIntyre fires up! McIntyre watches Mahal stand, gets around and NECKBREAKER! McIntyre kips up and wants to finish this! Kick and underhooks, but Mahal wrenches free!

Mahal wants the clutch but McIntyre elbows free! McIntyre spins Mahal around to a FUTURE SHOCK! McIntyre smirks as Mahal is dazed! McIntyre goes to a corner, counts it down, but Veer is on the apron! McIntyre DECKS him, SHANKY attacks!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by disqualification

McIntyre fights off Mahal’s henchmen but they mug him 2v1 in a corner! McIntyre DECKS Veer, elbows Shanky, but Mahal SUPERKICKS McIntyre down!! Veer & Shanky get McIntyre up to POST him! Mahal grins and he has them get McIntyre back up. They feed McIntyre to Mahal’s KALLAS!! The Maharaja and his men stand over McIntyre, but will this be enough to take McIntyre out of the MITB match?

Wait, Mahal takes McIntyre’s sword! Mahal says this is only fair for McIntyre taking away his MITB opportunity! What Will McIntyre do to not only get his revenge, but get his family’s greatest heirloom back?

 

Backstage interview with the New Day.

Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston are here and “K-Peezy” brings up how the Hurt Business is hell bent on sending them a message. How do they plan on adjusting from the planned singles match to the now tag team match? Adjust? Why would they adjust? Kevin said it, they are the 11-time world tag team champions! WWE.com even named them THE greatest tag team of all time! They don’t need to adjust! When there is a tag match challenge, of course they accept! That is what they do! But MVP & Bob are overcompensating for the truth bombs that were dropped! Kofi threw them on the BBQ and roasted them!

Now, MVP was talking last week about not being medically cleared, but this week he’s magical healed? WOW~! And Bob is back from vacay early, so what Kofi said hit a little close to home. Ouchies! Woods says that MVP wouldn’t think Woods would be showing up. But guess what? Woods went to hell and back and here he is! And MVP says Kofi won’t win at MITB? But wrong again! Once they’re live in front of fans and we can see the pleasure they have of seeing the match, we all see Kofi walk out the NEW WWE Champion! And another truth nugget: when Kofi was champ, Kofi proved that Kevin Garnet was right when he said, “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE~!”

Kofi is about to do this again at MITB in front of live, human flesh! Kofi’s been putting in the work while Lashley’s been resting on his all mighty laurels. MVP & Lashley can do all the vacay they want to after MITB and take their ladies with them! Because Lashley’s services will no longer be required. And all of those championship responsibilities will belong to the new, future, TWO-TIME, W! W! E! WORLD! HEAVY! WEIGHT! CHAMPION~! But not done there! BAAAAAAAAAYBEEEEEEEEEEEE~! It’s fittin’ to be a breeze, hah! The New Day is ready, but will they be able to bring the hurt to the Hurt Business?

 

Mace & T-Bar VS Lucha House Party!

These two teams have been wanting to settle things since the Raw Tag Team contenders battle royal, and they finally get that time! But will this be the extinction of the Golden Lynx & King of the Ropes? Or will the destructive duo learn you can’t extinguish a team this #LuchaLit?

The teams sort out and T-Bar starts with Lince “Kane” DOrado. They circle, Lince fires off kicks but T-Bar puts him in a corner. Lince dodges and CHOPS! Then runs to tilt-o-whirl headscissor T-Bar down! Lince stomps T-Bar, brings him up, and whips him to ropes. T-Bar reverses to mule kick and CLUB Lince down! T-Bar stalks Lince to a corner but Lince boots back! Lince goes up and leaps, but into T-Bar’s arms! T-Bar snarls as he gives Lince knees in the side, then TOSSES him out of the ring! Then he cyclone BOOTS Gran Metalik down! Tag to Mace, he fetches Lince, and bounces him off the announce desk!

“This is how you do it!” Mace smacks Lince off the desk more! Mace puts Lince in the ring, drags Lince around and stomps him, to dribble him off the mat!

No! Metalik dropkicks Mace in the back! Metalik dumps Mace out, but T-Bar stomps and whips Metalik! Metalik FLIES to take out Mace! Lince rolls and SPIKE-RANAS T-Bar! Cover, LUCHA HOUSE PARTY WINS!!

Winners: Lucha House Party, by pinfall

What a shocker! Lince & Metalik proved you can’t overlook anyone, least of all them! Will LHP get back up and head for the tag titles soon enough?

 

Matt Riddle checks his foot.

Bending each toe in turn, the pain is still bad. But Damian Priest checks in with him, and they have their own secret handshake. What’s Priest up to? Not much but what about Riddle? That fall was nasty. Riddle has fallen from further up. His cousin has this house with a sick roof, and Riddle jumped off to dive into the pool, but when he woke up, he was in the hospital. Worst summer ever. Yeah, alright… But look, Riddle has to be easy. A match with Styles could jeopardize his chances in the MITB match, and that’d be really lame. Well, see, Riddle wasn’t quite done with his story. Next summer, with adrenaline pumping, Riddle did the jump again. And then he landed in the deep end!

Riddle isn’t afraid of heights, ladders or Styles! And Riddle will show everyone, and Randy wherever he is, that Riddle can do this with the three most dangerous letters in the WWE: R K BRO! Technically that’s five letters… Well, all that aside, will Riddle prove that he can overcome anything? Or will this be phenomenal redemption for Styles?

Matt Riddle VS AJ Styles w/ Omos!

Raw returns as Riddle scooters back out to the ring. He couldn’t quite kick the sandals off this time, but he isn’t letting that bother him. The bell rings and Styles says Riddle must be crazy. They circle, feel things out, and Styles corners Riddle. Riddle gets away from the leg shoot, and Styles grins as Riddle gingerly steps on that bad foot. They circle, Riddle avoids kicks to the bad foot, and then goes in for a leg. Styles blocks, gets around, but Riddle uses his legs to get the arm! Styles uses his legs to get a ropebreak, but Riddle gets away from Styles before Styles can get the foot. They go again, Riddle is cornered and Styles KICKS the leg!

Styles CLUBS Riddle, stomps the bad leg, and Riddle scrambles to a corner! The ref has Styles back off but Styles comes back to get the leg! SHIN BREAKER! Styles holds on to try another but Riddle sunset flips! TWO, and Riddle KICKS Styles to a corner! Riddle fires off hands but Styles kicks the bad leg out! Styles KICKS the leg again in the hamstring! Riddle crawls but Styles gets the foot for a trip and elbow to the knee! Styles pulls with a toehold and Riddle screams in pain! Riddle sits up, tries a chinbar but Styles pushes back harder! Riddle clubs Styles, gets free, but Styles seethes as Riddle gets away. Styles fakes Riddle out to kick low, then whips.

Riddle holds ropes, Styles kicks him again, then whips. Riddle can’t run on the foot and he falls over! Styles grins but Riddle gets up to body scissor Styles up and out! Riddle gets back in the ring as Styles hurries up to the apron, but Riddle KICKS him in the ropes! Riddle drags Styles in like Orton would, but Styles has to leg to hotshot it! Riddle falls over again, Styles takes his time returning, and Styles is in at 5 of 10. Riddle tries the Crane Stance! Karate Kid vibes, anyone? Styles can’t believe this! Styles is about to laugh but The CRANE KICK hits!! Riddle fires off hands, has Styles in a corner, but lets off as the ref counts.

Riddle hobbles back, brings Styles up and GUT WRENCH SUPLEXES! Cover, ONE!! Styles survives, but Riddle PENALTY KICKS him! That’s double-edged because of the bad foot! Styles gets up, kicks the bad foot, fires off a Phenomenal Blitz, but swings into an arm-drag! Riddle KICKS with the bad leg again, but he powers through. Styles blocks the next kick to DRAGON SCREW! Styles kicks away on the bad leg, stomps Riddle, stomps the bad leg, but lets off as the ref counts. Riddle hobbles up again, but Omos sweeps the legs through the ropes! There’s no mercy in the ThunderDome, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Styles has a toehold. Riddle kicks back with his good leg, and then fires off hands on Styles! Riddle kicks, Styles ducks to CHOP BLOCK the bad leg! Omos nods as Styles drags Riddle around to an ANKLE LOCK! Styles shouts out the Olympic Gold Medalist, Kurt Angle, and leans on the hold! Riddle fights up, rolls and throws Styles off, then runs in, only for Styles to roll him back! Riddle slips out of the Calf Crusher to FINAL FLASH point-blank! Both men are down as Riddle clutches his leg. Riddle fights back up to drop a BROTON! Cover, TWO! Riddle watches Styles slowly get up, and runs in at the corner, but Styles BOOTS him!

Styles goes up, out, but Riddle trips up the springboard! Styles tumbles to the apron, Riddle drags him up through the ropes and #WWROD? What would Randy Orton do? DRAPING DDT! Riddle glares at Omos, gets his bad foot moving, and goes up the corner! With one leg, Riddle reaches the top, to FLOATING BRO! But Styles moves, Riddle lands on his feet, and Riddle hobbles up. Styles runs in, Riddle fireman’s carries, but that’s too much for the foot! Styles gets Riddle in the modified torture rack, PHENOMENAL BURNING HAMMER! Cover, TWO!?! Riddle lives and Styles is furious! Styles snarls but he brings Riddle up again.

Styles reels Riddle in for the Clash, but wait, is that Ivar? He’s glaring at Omos from behind the barrier, but Omos doesn’t see Erik creeping up from the other side! Styles tells Omos to watch out, but Riddle rolls Styles! RIDDLE WINS!!

Winner: Matt Riddle, by pinfall

That was some smart thinking from the “stinky barbarians,” as Styles says the Viking Raiders are. Erik & Ivar help Riddle away and Riddle says this was for Randy! Will Riddle be able to make it through MITB on behalf of The Viper? Or will it be too hard to climb a ladder with only one leg?

 

Charlotte Flair is here!

And after the chop block from Rhea Ripley last week, she isn’t walking with swagger, but with a crutch! The Queen has a mic to say, “I know. It’s shocking to see me like this. After Rhea took my knee out after I won the Six Woman Tag match, with my own move…” Charlotte knows the NBA is in turmoil after top stars like Anthony Davis and James Harden go down, the Playoffs are ruined. But what’s bigger than that is that Charlotte might miss MITB! “Because the Nightmare is so scared to lose her Raw Women’s Championship to the Queen, she’s resorted to using my own moves.”

Charlotte doesn’t blame Rhea. Charlotte would be scared to defend a title against Charlotte, too. And the only way for Rhea to hold onto the title is if she takes Charlotte out completely! Honestly, Charlotte couldn’t have done it any better, and Rhea is learning pretty well. Rhea knows if she hurts Charlotte, she won’t have to face Charlotte and she won’t be exposed as someone who can’t beat Charlotte. It’s what Charlotte would do. If there was someone better than Charlotte, what would Charlotte do? “Except nobody is better than Charlotte Flair!” But Rhea makes her entrance to respond! And Rhea is mocking Charlotte by walking out with a crutch of her own!

Rhea grimaces as she hobbles down the ramp. Rhea “struggles” up the steel steps and to the apron, but needs help through the ropes. Charlotte claims Rhea is just stealing her entrance now, too. Rhea says she needs a mic and the staffer gets her one. “You’re right, Charlotte. I did exactly what you would’ve done. Which is exactly what I’m doing right now.” Rhea sees right through Charlotte, and can play her game way better. That’s why Rhea knows Charlotte is just being a little drama queen! The crutches go flying and both women walk well after all. Rhea was right, and now the belts and heels are put aside. They each pick up a crutch, and they circle as they talk trash.

Charlotte swings first, Rhea dodges, but then Charlotte dodges! Crutches clash, each woman dodges, but Rhea is disarmed! Charlotte smirks as she has the advantage now, but Rhea dodges and gets her crutch back! Now Rhea disarms Charlotte! And JABS her! Charlotte bails out before Rhea can swing again! Rhea smashes the crutch against the mat, showing how dangerous that would’ve been! Rhea holds up her belt, will Rhea make sure Charlotte isn’t just acting next time?

 

Cedric Alexander & Elias VS R-Truth & Jaxson Ryker!

PRIMED has been working on clearing out the “antiques” in WWE, and he’s willing to #WalkWithElias to do it. But will they be able to deny the Truth and the Forgotten Son?

The teams sort out and wait, Akira Tozawa is here? He’s running from someone as 24/7 Champion, and he ends up in the ring! He bumps into Ryker but Truth rolls him up! TWO!?! Tozawa gets up, and here comes Drew Gulak, Humberto Carrillo, Angel Garza and even Shelton Benjamin! They storm right through the ring as Tozawa goes out the other side! They go around ringside, Truth says he’s gotta go?! Ryker is alone as Truth chases after his “baby!” Alexander laughs as he starts for his team, and the bell rings! Does Ryker stand a chance now that he stands alone?

The bell rings, Alexander fires off hands but so does Ryker! Ryker shoves Alexander out but Alexander BOOTS him! Alexander talks smack, steps in, but Ryker catches him for an URENAGE! Ryker seethes as he drags Alexander back up and then throws him to Elias. Ryker dares Elias to tag in, but Elias is afraid of Ryker so he backs away! Now things are even again as Alexander is left alone! Ryker calls Elias a coward, and promises this isn’t over by a long shot. Alexander rushes Ryker, and runs into a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, Ryker wins for his team!!

Winners: Jaxson Ryker & R-Truth, by pinfall

The wrath of Ryker is meant for the Drifter, but it all hit Alexander like a truck! Will Ryker run Elias down as WWE gets back on the road?

 

Bobby Lashley warms up with chin-ups.

MVP hypes him up by saying, “No one disrespects the Hurt Business.” The New Day is nuts for thinking they can get away with this. Kevin Patrick returns but MVP shuts him up already. “Does that look like a man that’s lost his edge to you?” Lashley stops warming up and is ready! Will the Chief Hurt Officer put the hurt on the New Day to end the night?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Raw!

First, Sheamus finally defends his WWE United States Championship against Humberto Carrillo, who has been scratching and clawing and getting in the Fella’s face for weeks! Will the Celtic Warrior finally prove he is a fighting champion? Plus, Styles & Omos square off in separate singles matches with Ivar & Erik, respectively, because in TWO weeks, the first Raw back in front of a live audience will see them defend those Raw Tag Team Championships! Who gets the last bit of momentum before going back on the road?

 

The New Day VS Bobby Lashley & MVP!

THE greatest tag team in WWE history will need to be great if they are to take down the Rocky Mountain Machine and Montel Vontavius Porter! Will it be just that easy as Kofi heads to MITB? Or is Lashley going to show just how hard it is to survive the wrath of the All Mighty World Champion?

Raw returns as the Hurt Business make their entrance. The teams sort out and Woods dares Lashley to start to continue where they left off. MVP says he’s got this, and MVP circles with Woods. They tie up, MVP gets an arm and wrenches to CLUB away on the shoulder. MVP wrenches gain, Woods wrenches through to give all the clubbing forearms back! Woods wristlocks, MVP fights through, and he throws uppercuts to the arm. Woods wrenches back, clubs the arm but MVP shoves him down! MVP talks smack but Woods gets up. They circle, tie up, and MVP knees Woods low! Woods clutches the ribs but MVP ROCKS him with a right!

MVP whips, Woods ducks and dodges to clip MVP’s leg! MVP clutches his bad knee and Woods rains down rights! Woods stares Lashley down then goes back to MVP. Woods wrenches the arm, MVP gets away but not very far! Woods drags MVP back, tags in Kofi, and Kofi climbs for a DIVING STOMP onto the bad leg! Cover, ONE!! Kofi keeps MVP down with a hammerlock. MVP fights up, elbows Kofi back, then brings him over to throw him down by his hair. Lashley wants in, so MVP tags him in. Lashley drags Kofi up and whips him to ropes, to then run him over with a shoulder! Lashley gets Kofi back up to put him in a corner and fire off hands!

The ref counts, Lashley lets off to then RAM his shoulder in again and again! The ref counts but Lashley lets off at 5, to then bring Kofi out for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Lashley gets Kofi back up, gut wrenches but Kofi slips out of the Dominator and lands on his feet to PENALTY KICK Lashley! Kofi CLUBS Lashley, headlocks, but Lashley powers up and SLAMS Kofi down! Lashley drags Kofi up by his beard, puts him in the corner, and stomps him down! Lashley CLUBS Kofi, tags in MVP, and MVP throws body shots. MVP brings Kofi up for forearms, then stares Woods down as he suplexes Kofi up! Kofi knees free and dropkicks MVP into the corner!

Kofi stomps MVP, Woods tags in and he stomps away! The Unicorn Stampede is short this time as Woods whips Kofi in to dropkick MVP! Kofi drags MVP up to headbutt him down! Woods taunts Lashley from across the way, but MVP bails out. Lashley goes over that way but Woods WRECKS him with a dropkick! Kofi builds speed, Woods holds down the ropes, and Kofi FLIES out to take down Lashley! The New Day are fire dup and standing tall in the ring as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once more and Woods rains down rights on Lashley in a corner! Woods gets about 8, Lashley shoves him but Woods gets around. Lashley powers out of the DDT but Woods waistlocks. Lashley bucks Woods off this time to CLOBBER him! Woods writhes as Lashley looms over him. MVP dares Woods to talk now, and Lashley gets Woods up for a SNAP suplex! Cover, ONE, but Lashley has an armlock! Lashley grinds Woods but Woods gets a ropebreak. Lashley lets off but stays between him and Kofi. Lashley knocks Woods down with a straddle attack, then glares at Kofi. Lashley drags Woods by his hair, digs a knee into his head, then gets him up.

Tag to MVP, the Hurt Business mugs Woods, then MVP looms over him. MVP puts Woods on ropes to choke him! The ref counts, MVP lets off, but MVP brings Woods up again. Woods throws hands, MVP throat chops him! Then DECKS him! MVP soaks up the heat and skips the run to drop the BALLIN’ elbow! Cover, TWO! MVP keeps on Woods with a chinbar and armlock. Woods fights up, throws body shot after body shot, and then JAWBREAKER! MVP grabs Woods, Woods boots him away! Hot tag to Kofi! Springboard ax handle for MVP! Ax handle for Lashley! Kofi mule kicks, but MVP body shots! MVP back suplexes, Kofi lands on his feet to BULLDOG!

Kofi hurries to a cover, TWO! Kofi mule kicks MVP down, DECKS Lashley, then runs for the NEW~ DAY, BALLIN’ BOOM DROP! Kofi fires up and aims from a corner! Lashley goes after him but gets a SUPERKICK for it! Kofi turns around into MVP’s LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! MVP is frustrated but he goes after Kofi. MVP checks to see where Lashley went, and Lashley gets up to tag in. MVP BOOTS Kofi in the corner, and Kofi staggers into Lashley’s MILE HIGH SPINEBUSTER! Cover, Woods breaks it in time! Lashley is furious and he throws Woods out hard! Lashley tags MVP back in, gets Kofi up, but Kofi gives Lashley TROUBLE IN PARADISE!

MVP throws hands on Kofi, but Woods LEAPS to take Lashley down! MVP CLUBS Kofi, gets Kofi up, but no Playmaker! Kofi slips out, TROUBLE IN PARADISE!! Cover, The New Day wins!!

Winners: The New Day, by pinfall

MVP sits up in a daze as the New Day gets away! Lashley is furious but he should’ve known the 11-time tag champions would pull this one off! Will he have a better business plan for when it’s 1v1 with Kofi at MITB?


My Thoughts:

This was another very good Raw, especially for the second-to-last one in the ThunderDome and before the PPV. The only real weak spot was the quite clearly filler of R-Truth & Ryker VS Alexander & Elias. Truth being there of course meant the 24/7 Championship would get a spot, and just as it seems Ryker would be in a bad situation, Elias chickens out and Alexander is left alone. Ryker’s push is definitely all Vince, it is going to be quite interesting to see live audiences around America react to Ryker even just showing up. Lucha House Party winning over Mace & T-Bar was also a bit filler, but I did like Mace talking trash at Byron, who replaced Dio Maddin on commentary.

MizTV was a really good opening moment, though perhaps a little awkward when Ricochet interacted with Miz and Morrison directly. Riddle was great, though, and then Styles & Omos showing up was also great. It works for Styles to pick on Riddle, that keeps the feud of Styles & Omos VS RKBRO alive. Styles VS Riddle was a great match, it perfectly used the foot injury angle. I like that Viking Raiders showed up to mess with Omos & Styles and that helped Riddle win, and now we’re getting quite a lot of great stuff next week. Next week being the go-home to the PPV and the good-bye to the ThunderDome, those singles matches and the US Championship match are going to really punctuate that intersection of moments.

Getting Mustafa VS Mansoor tonight was a good move, and it was a great move that Mustafa tricked Mansoor to get the win. It might be a bit derivative of THE Brian Kendrick and Akira Tozawa in the early days of 205 Live, but it’s not like that many fans watching Raw watched 205 Live so this will be some fresh material for the mainstream to have fun with. Charlotte was of course faking the bad leg, perhaps as a ploy to delay her match with Rhea or lure her into a trap, but whatever the plan was, it gets a bit trampled by Rhea copying Charlotte. Rhea and Charlotte having a chair fight was pretty good, but Rhea technically stands tall so who knows what this means for MITB.

The promos from the Women’s Division before the 8 Woman Tag were pretty good. The match itself was pretty fun, and it works for the Heels (and Piper) to win. The women in the MITB are all even, and then Eva gets to build her Heel heat, even with the others. After Nia and Piper did that double body attack together, I almost want those two to be a tag team after Piper ditches Eva. Of course, that’d require perhaps Shayna breaking it off with Nia because she just can’t stand Reggie any longer, but that could probably happen easily enough.

McIntyre’s promos aren’t bad, they’re just getting rather odd. He’s executing them perfectly but him pretending they’re historical stories and legends and then making them about himself seem a bit obnoxious for his character. He and Mahal had a really good match, though, even with Shanky & Veer attacking McIntyre and “ruining” things. Mahal taking the sword was a good detail, though. Maybe next week, we get another match so McIntyre can take the sword back and go into MITB strong, so that the math takes him out of the running. Then after MITB, McIntyre can feud with Mahal more, build both guys up, and see if the US Championship gets included in it.

We got good promos from the Hurt Business and the New Day, and we got a very good match in the main event. MVP being in this was definitely so he could take the loss, keeping the math essentially neutral between Kofi and Lashley, even with Kofi getting the win. There will surely be one last segment between them in the go-home, and that will be a bit more telling, but I still don’t see Kofi winning at MITB, as great as that would be.

My Score: 8.3/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament Bracket is here!

Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky are of course a team, and they’ll be taking on Tamina & Dana Brooke! Then Asuka teams with Alexa Bliss to take on Nikki A.S.H. and “Doudrop” Piper Niven, Raquel Rodriguez teams with Aliyah against Shotzi & Xia Li, and in quite the surprise, NXT’s Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark will be taking on Natalya & Sonya Deville! Who will make it to the finals to be the NEW WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions?

 

Bayley, Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky head to the ring!

The Role Model leads #CobraKai and the Evil Genius out here in The Land, and The Land boos them after all the cheap shots they’ve been taking. Bayley, Kai & Sky all get mics and Bayley says, “DING DONG~!” Fans boo but Bayley says c’mon, she hasn’t seen them in forever and this is what she gets? But Bayley, Kai & Sky are all excited to see your dumb, smiling faces! Trust her when she says they don’t wanna be here, either, but the fans need them. The fans are watching to see what these three do to salvage this division. Kai says, “Like crash SummerSlam and shake everyone up?” “Exactly!”

The fans can’t honestly sit here and say they enjoy watching Becky Lynch play dress-up every week. But they cheer! But they can’t honestly like that “champion” in Bianca Belair. But they cheer again! Bianca would be nothing without Bayley! And that’s why last week, they had to make a statement. For all the fans! First, they took care of stupid Becky’s shoulder, then they lit a fire under every single woman in the locker room, for the fans! These three are bringing back what’s been missing. Sky says it’s the hunger! Yes! The division needs to be hungry for more! But Bayley doesn’t blame the locker room. They’re just like the fans: sheeple who don’t know how to ask for more.

But if you can’t find the answers you’re looking for, ask better questions! So here’s a question for all the idiots out there: “How am I the only one to realize what a lethal weapon Iyo Sky is? How am I the only person in this whole damn building who realized the benefits of bringing in someone like Dakota Skai?” Okay, yes, she said it wrong, big whoop! Shut up so she can think, dummies! They’re upsetting Bayley, but imagine how mad these two are? They’ve been boiling this whole time! Fans boo, Bayley gets mad, but Kai has her calm down. Bayley doesn’t have to tell them anymore. Kai & Sky will show them in this tag title tournament tonight and win it!

But wait! Here comes Alexa Bliss! AND Asuka! The Fury and the Empress are going to be in that same tournament, so this seems to be a reminder. But here comes BIANCA, too! The RawEST Women’s Champion walks down to the ring with Alexa and Asuka and they get mics, too. Alexa says, “Yeah, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.” Fans chant for the EST, and Alexa tells Dakota & Iyo that they’re not winning. If they win tonight, guess who they’ll face next? Alexa Bliss & Asuka!! And after what they pulled last week, there’s more incentive to beat the hell out of them and win the titles.

And Bianca tells Iyo they’re not done, either. Bianca IS hungry, and she’s ready to finish what they started last week. But if we’re playing the numbers game, the three of them have no problem dealing with Bayley’s three right now. Oh pipe down. Bayley knew this would get them all worked up. But Bayley calls the shots. They can do 3v3 where it counts, which isn’t here in Cleveland! The Six Woman Tag can happen at Clash at the Castle! Bianca looks to Alexa and Asuka, and challenge accepted! Okay, then! But while Bayley is trying to keep control, Bianca says tonight, she’ll lose it! And the brawl is own! Bianca fires off on Bayley, Asuka throws Kai out while Alexa is after Iyo!

Fans fire up as things spill out of the ring, and then into the crowd! Bianca throws knees on Bayley but refs rush out to break up the others. Bayley hits back, Iyo SMACKS Alexa off the desk! Then Iyo goes after Bianca! Asuka rushes after Iyo, but then Kai rushes after Asuka! Alexa gets on the barrier to CROSSBODY everyone!! Fans are fired up as Alexa drags Kai up to fire off forearms! Officials and management rush out now, will this chaos subside after the break?

 

Seth Rollins VS Angelo Dawkins w/ Montez Ford!

The Visionary already burned it down with Montez Ford, but now he takes on the other half of the Street Profits! Will Rollins sweep the series? Or will the #CurseOfGreatness take down the Architect?

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. They tie up, Rollins headlocks, but Dawkins powers up and out. Rollins wrenches to mule kick, but Dawkins avoids the Curb Stomp! Dawkins and Rollins circle, tie up, and Dawkins headlocks. Rollins powers up and out, things speed up and Rollins hurdles, but Dawkins handsprings! And DROPKICKS! Cover, ONE, but Dawkins wrenches to a wristlock, then YANKS the arm. Dawkins grinds the arm but Rollins pulls headbands to whip Dawkins to ropes. Dawkins hurdles then FLYING ELBOWS! Ford mocks Rollins’ short temper, then Dawkins POUNCES Rollins over the desk! Fans are fired up as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Rollins has Dawkins down with an armlock. Dawkins fights up but Rollins wrenches. Dawkins ROCKS Rollins with forearm after forearm, then he whips Rollins to a corner. Dawkins runs in, into a BUCKLE SHOT! Rollins catches his breath but Ford is right there coaching Dawkins. Rollins kicks Ford away! Ford gets mad and gets a chair! Ford gets in the ring, the fans are fired up, but the ref has Ford stay back! Ford lets go of the chair and the ref throws it out, but he still has to keep Ford from hitting Rollins. The ref EJECTS Ford! And Rollins laughs while the fans boo. “Bye bye~!”

Rollins grins and laughs as he soaks up the heat from the fans, but Dawkins is up to clothesline Rollins up and out! Fans fire up, Dawkins builds speed, and he FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp and the fans are thunderous! Dawkins puts Rollins in, scoops him, PUMP HANDLE FALL AWAY SLAM! Dawkins then runs to CYCLONE SPLASH! And ENZIGURI! Then the underhooks for the SILENCER! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives and Dawkins can’t believe it! Fans fire up as Dawkins scoops but Rollins slips off to O’Conner Roll! TWO, Rollins comes back to turn Dawkins, DREAM SMASHER ELBOW! Rollins then runs, but Dawkins dodges!

Dawkins rolls Rollins up, but Rollins rolls through! Dawkins dodges again, SKY HIGH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?! Rollins survives and Cleveland is losing their mind! Rollins flops out of the ring and Dawkins snarls. Dawkins goes out and runs in around the way, but is sent into steel steps! Rollins gets in the ring, Dawkins pursues, but the CURB- NO, Dawkins dodges again! SKY- NO, Rollins wrenches and WRINGS the arm, then underhooks! PEDIGREE!! Cover, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall

The Visionary couldn’t hit his favorite, but wait! Here’s the CURB STOMP!! Ford rushes back out but the damage to Dawkins is done! Rollins runs off, having swept the Profits. Will he face the consequences? Or just head off towards the title?

 

The Mysterios talk backstage.

Dominik helps Rey prepare for Finn Balor, but in walks Edge! Rey’s cool but Edge can tell Dom’s heated up. Edge has their backs, because what happened last week with that Spear was an accident. Are they cool? Dom’s cool. But then he shoves Edge! Rey calms Dom down, it was an accident! Rey’s known Edge for 20 years, he’s like family! Rey’s known Dom for 25! How can Rey take Edge’s side?! Dom storms off but Rey assures Edge he’ll talk with Dom about this. Is it going to be harder to forgive the Rated R Superstar than expected?

 

Backstage interview with The Miz & Tommaso Ciampa.

The Hollywood A-Lister and the Psycho Killer are here after Ciampa’s phenomenal win last week to become Bobby Lashley’s challenger tonight. Does he feel tonight is the night? Miz points out the use of “phenomenal,” and asks if Kevin Patrick couldn’t think of another word. Miz says there is nothing phenomenal about someone who sides with a hack like Logan Paul! But who had the last laugh? Ciampa! And Ciampa says people always talk about overcoming adversity. When you want something you believe in, believe in Ciampa! Who believed in Ciampa? The first-ever US Champion, Harley Race! That man trained Ciampa and made him into the man he is today.

Three years ago to the day, Harley paced away. Tonight, Ciampa dedicates his win to the King, Harley Race! And, and, AND, with Harley looking down on him, and with the Miz in his corner, Ciampa will truly make this his moment. When he steps foot in that ring and Lashley looks into his eyes, Lashley will feel Ciampa’s sacrifice, and Lashley will realize that he has already lost. Will Ciampa’s blackheart finally beat with gold again?

 

Ezekiel VS Kevin Owens!

Once again, the younger brother of Elias is taking on the Prizefighter, and even though Kevin claims he’s over his obsession, this will be quite the test. Will Kevin focus on the fight and not Ezekiel’s identity? Or will he #ZekeOut all over again?

The bell rings and Kevin rushes Zeke! Kevin fires off forearms, maybe that obsession has rekindled already! Kevin stomps away in the corner, Zeke slips out but Kevin goes out to POST him! And the RAM him into the desk! And then again, making the desk move! Zeke crawls, Kevin drags him up and reels him in! Fans fire up for the APRON POWERBOMB!! Kevin’s mean streak has returned and Zeke writhes! The ref is calling this match, Zeke can’t continue!

No Contest

Kevin gets in the ring and looks down on Zeke while medics are rushed out to the ring. They bring a stretcher and board! Kevin laughs at the destruction he has wrought, but is this going to be the last time we see Zeke?

 

Rey Mysterio VS Finn Balor w/ The Judgement Day!

The King of Lucha and the Prince go another round, and things are even more tense after what happened at SummerSlam and last week on Raw. Will Rey finally end things with the Judgement Day? Or will he face the punishment for resisting?

Finn gets a mic to say, “Edge thinks we should fear him. Rey Mysterio thinks that we should fear him. Those two can’t even get on the same page! Poor little Dominik Mysterio’s already abandoned both of them! The Judgement Day isn’t afraid of anyone! Y’know why? Because fear isn’t real. Fear is a product of your imagination. But danger is real! Danger is very real! And Rey, tonight, you’re going to find out that I am danger!” Priest tells Edge that to be clear, if he wanted to, he could lay Edge out. But in two weeks, the WWE is in Toronto. Edge hasn’t wrestled on Raw in Canada in 12 years!

So here it is! Priest is officially challenging Edge, 1v1! The Rated R Superstar VS The Punisher! If Edge still has a set, then he and Priest can end this! Edge may have started the Judgement Day, but in Toronto, in front of Edge’s family and friends, the Judgement Day ends Edge! What will Edge say about that challenge? As for Rey, he can’t seem to find Dominik anywhere. Well, Edge’s offer still stands, especially after being called out. Rey says he knows Dom, Dom will come to his senses. Well, okay then. Go get ’em! Rey goes it alone for now, but will he be alone in the end? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Rey makes his entrance. And though Rey waits, there’s no Dom. Rey goes to the ring and gets in alone. The bell rings and Fin kicks Rey low! Finn bumps Rey off buckles, fires off body shots, then brings Rey around to bump off more buckles. Finn throws more body shots, bumps Rey off more buckles, then CHOPS him! Fans “WOO~!” then Finn whips Rey corner to corner. Rey reverses, ROCKS Finn then bumps him off buckles. Finn staggers, Rey bumps him off more buckles! Rey ROCKS Finn again, bumps him off more buckles, then fires off more haymakers. Rey whips corner to corner, Finn reverses, but Rey elbows him way.

Rey runs and tilt-o-whirls to headscissor Finn out! Fans fire up and Rey WRECKS Finn with a dropkick! Rey then goes to the apron, for a FLYING SEATED SENTON! Fans fire up and Rey KICKS Finn in the leg. Rey puts Finn in the ring, climbs up the corner, and leaps to SEATED SENTON again! Fans fire up while Finn flounders, but Rey runs in, Finn pops him up but Rey RANAS Finn into buckles! Finn flounders, Rey whips him to ropes, but Finn reverses. Rey ducks and springboards, but Finn avoids the crossbody! Rey crashes down and Finn snarls as he runs in and KICKS Rey in the side! Finn stomps Rey, then springboard stomps him again and again!

Finn lets off as the ref counts but only Priest applauds. Finn drags Rey up, clamps on and ROCKS him with forearms in the back! Finn runs but Rey rams into him! Rey slingshots to sunset flip, TWO! Rey kicks low but Finn hits back, ELBOW DROP DDT! Cover, TWO! Finn is annoyed but he stalks Rey. Finn drags Rey up, suplexes, then holds on for Uno Amigo! Fans boo as Finn smirks and Dos Amigos! Finn then gets back up, mocks Latino Heat, but REY suplexes Finn back! Fans fire up while Finn goes to ropes. Priest coaches Finn, but Rey dodges the haymaker to fire off shots!

Backstage interview with Tamina & Dana Brooke.

These two are a team together in the Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament, and that means Dana could be a Double Champion. And she needs a partner to get there. She’s defended her 24/7 Championship a lot, with her biggest challenger being Tamina. So together, they- Wait, Bayley, Sky & Kai walk in. Bayley wants Dana to relax, these three aren’t going to beat her up to take that title. They have their eyes set on belts that suit them. And the Women’s Tag Team Championships suit them because Bayley was the first one to hold them! Not that Dana would know about that.

But Tamina does. So keep yapping, Bayley, and Tamina will take her and her friends out of the tournament right now. Kai tells Dana, “See you out there.” Iyo Sky says in both Japanese and English, “I don’t like you.” Will Dana & Tamina not like what’s coming in the opening match of this tournament?

 

Vacated WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament, Opening Round: Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky w/ Bayley VS Tamina & Dana Brooke!

#CobraKai & the Evil Genius have both been NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, though not together. But they’re taking on a duo where only one of them has had a tag title reign of their own. Will it be easy for Kai & Sky to take control? Or will the Flex Appeal & Daughter of Superfly shut them down right out of the gate?

The teams sort out, Dana starts with Kai and fans rally up. Kai and Dana circle, tie up, and Dana waistlocks. Kai pries at the hold, switches around, but Dana headlocks back. Kai powers out, but Dana blocks a hip toss to hip toss Kai! Then handsprings to BOOT Kai down! Cover, ONE, but Dana drags Kai up with a facelock. Kai endures the squeeze, pries out again but DOUBLE FOREARMS hit! Tamina tags in, and she eggs Kai on. Fans rally with Dana for “TA-MI-NA!” Kai rushes in but Tamina SWATS her, then ROCKS her! Then again! Then she DECKS Sky! Bayley protests but Tamina dodges and kicks Kai to then suplex high and hard!

Kai bails out and Sky hurries over. Tamina tags Dana and Dana climbs up, for a SUPER CROSSBODY! Direct hit at the ramp and fans fire up with Dana! Bayley creeps over but then Dana stares her down. Bayley says that’s fine, Kai & Sky don’t need her. Dana doubts that, and Raw goes to break.

AEW Elevation Coverage

Elevation has CERO MIEDO!

Before AEW Dynamite: Quake by the Lake and their Tornado Tag match, the Lucha Brothers tune up against The Wingmen in a standard 2v2!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Athena VS Queen Aminata; wins.
  • John Silver & Alex Reynolds VS T.U.G Cooper & Lord Crewe; win.
  • Kiera Hogan & Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Freya States & Alice Crowley; win.
  • Ruby Soho & Skye Blue VS Megan Myers & Nikki Victory; wins.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ Ari Daivari VS Casey Carrington; wins.
  • The Lucha Bros w/ Alex Abrahantes VS The Wingmen; win.

QUICK NOTES

One thing to note is that Parker Boudreaux has Ari Daivari in his corner. I wonder if the Trust Busters is becoming a trio, Parker joining Daivari and Slim J. Then in Kiera and Leila teaming up, this is the one time where “Can they coexist?” should be a thing since The Baddies still haven’t fully accepted Leila. And of course, the Lucha Brothers will beat The Wingmen to get momentum going into their Lucha Rules Tornado Tag with Rush & Andrade.
