PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Crown Jewel Kickoff Show!

Kayla Braxton, Matt Camp and Peter Rosenberg are in the WWE Command Center to analyze, discuss and predict all the action!

 

Backstage interview with Paul Heyman.

Kevin Patrick spooks Heyman as he exits Roman Reigns’ room. Heyman tells him not to do that and then asks who he even is. Kevin introduces himself and says they’ve met before. But he’s hoping to get a word from Heyman about the monumental Universal Championship and if it will be difficult for him given his dueling loyalties to both Roman and Lesnar. Heyman says he can’t understand a word Kevin said. And also, Kayla surely put Kevin up to this. Heyman will smarten him up: ask an honest question that can get an honest answer out of him. Kevin thanks Heyman for the clarification. Then is it true that last Friday, he went over the title contract with Brock Lesnar?

Heyman sighs. “Before you get fired, which I’m hoping is really, really soon, let me give you an exclusive. Tonight at Crown Jewel, I am going to walk down to the ring with the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns. And I am going to walk back to the locker room with the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion. Thank you very much.” Did Heyman not name that winning champion on purpose? Or is it supposed to be a forgone conclusion of where his loyalties lie?

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

Is she in any way worried about momentum given her lose to Sasha Banks last Friday? Becky whips off her sunglasses to glare at Kevin Patrick. She expected more from him, as friends from “the old country.” Kevin finally gets his big moment with her and wants to talk about Sasha cheating? He asks if Becky’s worried about momentum, but he should be asking “Esther.” She was on the run of a lifetime before Becky punched her in the face at SummerSlam. Momentum only means it hurts more when you hit a wall, and Becky’s the wall. But a Triple Threat means you can lose without being part of the decision.

She knows how they work, Kevin! She knows that either challenger can weasel their way to a win, steal the title, and never having to beat her. But if you think she’s going to rob the people of history and let either of those fools win, you aren’t paying attention. It is time for The Man to remind everyone just who the hell she is! But will #BigTimeBecks simply lose big on this historic night?

The Powerhouse of Positivity took the title off Bobby Lashley thanks to his Money in the Bank contract and finally reached the pinnacle of the WWE.

SmackDown Women’s Championship Triple Threat: Becky Lynch VS Bianca Belair VS Sasha Banks!

The Man came ’round at SummerSlam when The Boss was MIA, and she took the title off The EST in 26 seconds! And she hasn’t let anyone forget it, either.

WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman VS Brock Lesnar!

The Tribal Chief is very familiar with his Special Counsel’s past as The Advocate to The Beast given the battles these two behemoths have had with each other. Heyman promises that he walks down to the ring with the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion and that he walks back up the ramp with the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion. But then, who will that be after this newest chapter in Reigns VS Lesnar?

Heyman hands the belt to Roman on stage so that he can summon the pyro. Roman gives the belt to Heyman to carry as a banner as they go to the ring. Heyman gives the belt back and Roman raises it for more pyro. Then Lesnar makes his entrance, with his own pyro. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see which Heyman Guy comes out the guy.

Fans rally for “SUPLEX CITY!” already as Lesnar and Roman circle. They tie up against the ropes, Roman puts Lesnar in the corner then gets away. Lesnar grins as he and Roman reset. They circle, fans fire up and Lesnar kicks low to CLUB away on Roman’s back! Lesnar waistlocks but Roman elbows free! Roman throws haymakers, but Lesnar gets around to waistlock! Roman holds ropes, throws elbows again and is free. Roman throws uppercuts but Lesnar RAMS him into a corner! Lesnar RAMS into Roman again and again! Roman comes back with big forearms! Lesnar gets around but Roman grabs the ropes!

Roman elbows free yet again, but then Lesnar ducks the clothesline to GERMAN SUPLEX! And so it begins! Roman grabs the buckle in the corner but Lesnar pulls and pulls. The ref counts, Lesnar CLUBS Roman, then RAMS into him! And again! And again! Lesnar then stomps Roman down, lets off, and looms over Roman in the corner. Lesnar stomps Roman, brings him up, but Roman hotshots and trips Lesnar up! Lesnar BOOTS Roman into the barriers! But Roman comes back with haymakers, then POSTS Lesnar! Roman catches his breath, the ring count climbs, Lesnar stands and picks Roman up! Roman grabs post so Lesnar throws him into the ring.

Fans rally and duel as Lesnar gets on the apron. Roman runs in to SUPERMAN PUNCH Lesnar down! Lesnar hits the floor, Roman hears the ring count but builds speed to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Lesnar! Fans lose their minds as Roman and Lesnar slowly rise. Lesnar gets in the ring at 5 of 10, but Roman follows. Roman aims as Lesnar stands, SPEAR!! Cover, TWO!! Lesnar survives and Roman is shocked! Fans rally and duel harder as Roman goes to a corner. Roman locks ‘n’ loads, SUPERMAN PUNCH! Lesnar flounders, Roman reloads and SUPERMAN PUNCH! Lesnar falls in the corner but still gets up! Lesnar shakes out the cobwebs, Roman aims again, “OOAH~!”

Roman run but Lesnar hurdles and Roman POSTS himself!! Fans say, “This is Awesome!” as Lesnar gets up and get a GERMAN SUPLEX! That’s two! He gets Roman for another GERMAN SUPLEX! That’s three! Lesnar wants Roman to get up again, and he roars! GERMAN SUPLEX! That’s four! Lesnar roars more and fans roar with him. Lesnar stands Roman up again, fireman’s carries and F5!! Cover, TWO!?!? Roman survives and no one can believe it! Fans are thunderous as they duel and Lesnar stalks Roman. Roman sputters, Lesnar drags Roman up, and fireman’s carries to F- NO! GUILLOTINE!! Lesnar powers up but Roman holds tight, Lesnar still SPINEBUSTERS!

Lesnar drags Roman up, fireman’s carries again, and F5, but into the ref!! Lesnar covers but no ref! Lesnar would’ve won by now but it doesn’t matter! Lesnar throws the ref out of the ring but he turns around into a SPEAR!! Both men are down, there’s no ref, and Heyman watches both men. Heyman throws the title belt into the ring and shouts, “You know what to do with it!” But who did he say that to? He threw the belt in the middle, was that by accident? The two tug-o-war over the belt, but here come the Usos! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!! Maybe that was the plan? Roman gets the belt to CLOBBER Lesnar! A new ref appears and counts the cover, Roman wins!!

Winner: Roman Reigns, by pinfall (still WWE Universal Champion)

Was Heyman using the belt as a distraction just so Lesnar would lose focus? He still leaves with the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed Universal Champion, but was it the one he was expecting?


My Thoughts:

Honestly, this was a great night for the WWE. Now, obviously Goldberg VS Lashley had just a clumsy story build to this point, but even that was a decent match given they also added Falls Count Anywhere outta nowhere. And a Spear off the stage was a good finish either way. Goldberg won and he wasn’t a liability, that’s the most fans can ask for. One thing WWE is figuring out is that even kickoff matches can be fun, which Usos VS Hurt Business was. Naturally, Usos win, there’s not really a reason for a team going to Raw to win over the SmackDown Tag Team Champions. Kicking off the main show with HIAC was awesome, a lot of great story and references back to previous matches, and Edge winning was a natural choice. I’m still just confused as to why they both get drafted to the same show.

Mansoor VS Ali was really good and of course Mansoor wins in Saudi Arabia. But for one, I do like that Ali attacked after, this feud could and should continue on SmackDown. Also a nice moment for Saudi Arabia having their other hometown hero in Hamdi having a part to play on the show. RKBRO VS Styles & Omos was good and I figured RKBRO would win. It’s time for them to move on from Styles & Omos, maybe to Hurt Business since we never saw Lashley get his title shot because of MVP’s injury. Then, the Queen’s Crown finals barely did any better than the other rounds, three paragraphs is the longest match that tournament has had. It’s still great for Vega to win because she hasn’t had much of anything, but I’m sure she and Piper could’ve given way more than what we got.

Meanwhile, Balor VS Woods was great stuff, and it is so great for Woods to win. He was talking about KOTR since last year, he is essentially the onscreen reason this tournament even came back, it is only right that he won. Woods will bring the crown to SmackDown, I can’t wait to see how King Xavier does things on Fridays. Big E VS McIntyre was great stuff, too, the false finishes really upped this one. With McIntyre leaving to SmackDown, of course Big E wins to keep this title on Raw. Again, I would’ve liked if McIntyre stayed on Raw to go for the US title and his Grand Slam, but maybe McIntyre is next for Roman. Big E could face just about anyone on Raw, who knows where they go with it.

The SmackDown Women’s Triple Threat was great stuff, the fans really love all three women, and they all got to give us great stuff. Each woman got really close to winning this, but given Charlotte Flair is bringing the Raw Women’s title to SmackDown, it only makes sense someone going to Raw brings the SmackDown title. With Bianca just losing to Charlotte, I suppose it makes sense Becky retains. We’re going to get a boring trade but again, I suppose Becky deserves to reign to make up for her time away. Maybe there’s something more or better planned, but more than likely not.

The Universal Championship story was really great stuff, especially considering Heyman’s part to play in this. Heyman was perfectly vague in his promos, implying his loyalty is to the championship, not the person holding it. He did a great job with that throw so that it was right between the two guys, while his facial expressions did make it seem like he expected things to go Lesnar’s way. I’m sure the next step is Heyman and The Bloodline trying to get past the suspicions and refocusing on other challengers. Survivor Series is next, so that is brand VS brand, they probably pick on The New Day on the road to Big E VS Roman. But again, McIntyre could try and take the title so he can have a rematch with Big E.

My Score: 8.7/10

Best of the Super Juniors 28: Ryusuke Taguchi VS Yoshinobu Kanemaru!

The Funky Weapon is on a roller coaster ride in this BOSJ, but now he’s meeting the Heel Master, who is the top of the block! Will Taguchi be able to even out? Or will Kanemaru continue to lead the way?

Wait, Kanemaru attacks Taguchi while he’s posing! Kanemaru stomps away at the ropes, the bell rings to get this on record, and then Kanemaru keeps stomping. He takes Taguchi’s shirt off and continues stomping him. Taguchi gets up, Kanemaru kicks low but Taguchi CHOPS back. And CHOPS! But Kanemaru rakes eyes! Kanemaru runs, Taguchi goes the other way and the two run the ropes. Kanemaru stops himself but Taguchi keeps going as fans rally. Taguchi eggs Kanemaru on to join him, but Kanemaru just lets him keep going. Then he pushes him to keep him going! Taguchi is getting tired, Kanemaru dropkicks the legs out!

Taguchi clutches his leg, Kanemaru drags him back and SMASHES the knee into the mat. Taguchi writhes but Kanemaru stomps the leg. Kanemaru drags Taguchi up, has the leg, for a SHIN BREAKER! Taguchi writhes even more and gets to ropes. Kanemaru puts the leg on the ropes to stand on it! The ref counts, Kanemaru lets off at 4. Kanemaru drags Taguchi back to drop an elbow and clamp on a toehold. Taguchi fights back with a chinlock but Kanemaru wrenches the leg. Kanemaru then lets off to drop knees on the knee, then pulls on the toehold again. Taguchi gets the ropebreak, Kanemaru lets go at 3.

Kanemaru drags Taguchi away from the ropes to YANK the leg. Fans rally for Taguchi but Kanemaru has the leg for a HALF CRAB! Taguchi endures, crawls forward and gets the ropebreak!

Cover, TWO! Kanemaru drags Taguchi to a drop zone, goes up top, MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!

Fans rally as Taguchi is still in this, but Kanemaru goes up again. Kanemaru waits on Taguchi to rise, but Taguchi’s bad leg is really wobbly. Taguchi stands, Kanemaru waits for him to be stable but Taguchi falls over! Kanemaru hops down to get at Taguchi, but Taguchi was suckering him in! Victory roll, TWO!!

Hiromu forearms, Taiji forearms, Taiji ROCKS Hiromu and gets the edge! Hiromu keeps coming back, even as Taiji throws more forearms! Taiji ROCKS Hiromu again and again but Hiromu just fires up again and again! Hiromu finally staggers back and fans cheer. But then Hiromu SHOTGUN dropkicks Taiji into a corner! Both men are down, fans rally up. Hiromu drags himself up, Taiji fires up and runs, into the OVERHEAD Belly2Belly into buckles!

Fans rally up again as Hiromu stands up. Hiromu goes over and brings Taiji up. Hiromu suplexes but Taiji fights out to get the arm! Hiromu fights his way over but Taiji rolls him away, to then drag Hiromu up and POST him! That’s why he took away the pad: to open the way to the corner post! Taiji hammerlocks the arm and scoops, to then SHOULDER BREAKER! Fans rally up while Hiromu and Taiji are both down. Taiji aims, Hiromu slowly stands, Taiji runs in to tilt-o-whirl, but Hiromu blocks and spins for DYNAMITE PLUNGER! Hiromu roars and fans fire up as he drags Taiji back up. Hiromu suplexes but Taiji knees free, but Hiromu SUPERKICKS!

Hiromu runs into a BOOT! Hiromu roars and runs in, to a JUMP KNEE! Down goes Hiromu and Taiji roars! Taiji aims, bang! He drags Hiromu up, BLOODY- NO! Hiromu slips out, spins Taiji around, VICTORIA! Hiromu crawls to the cover, TWO! Hiromu slowly rises, fans rally up, and Hiromu drags Taiji up in the dragon sleeper. Hiromu inverted suplexes but Taiji slips out and spins around to drag Hiromu down for the over-the-shoulder, only for Hiromu to roll him up! TWO!!

BONE LOCK!! Hiromu scrambles, reaches out, but Taiji rolls him away! Taiji pulls way back, HIROMU TAPS! TAIJI WINS!!

Winner: Taiji Ishimori, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Hiromu earns 0)

The Bone Soldier defuses the Timebomb and has a huge win under his belt! Can Hiromu recover and still have a chance at going back-to-back? As for Taiji, he takes a moment to rest before he gets the mic. “Hiromu. You really are something. I hate to admit it, but damn!” Fans applaud this odd showing of respect Taiji is giving as Hiromu takes his leave. Taiji says he can’t go on some “energetic rant like Hiromu,” but he’ll just say, “The NJPW Junior Division isn’t all about El Desperado and Hiromu Takahashi! I said this before, but once again. Look at me! I will show you strength and greatness! It’s Reborn!” Will Taiji prove this division doesn’t belong to anyone but him?

My Thoughts:

A great round for the BOSJ, some real great surprises in the results. I thought for sure Kanemaru would keep going but Taguchi gets a win off him in a real good match. Douki using his pipe to fight off the wrench was great, but I had a feeling Sho would still win. Yoh getting another win is great, I still hope they make a big deal out of Yoh VS Sho when we get it. Bushi VS Phantasmo was good, and I like that ELP was playing it up that he got “it” back in his boot. But I find it interesting that he hesitated to use Sudden Death just to try and use Kenny Omega’s moves. I wonder if that was just to keep ELP from winning and keep him near the bottom.

I wasn’t surprised by Desperado winning, just in how he won. I didn’t think he’d win with just his signature pin, but that was quite the shocker. And then Taiji VS Hiromu was awesome stuff, and I didn’t think Taiji would get the win here. That’s big stuff for Taiji and the tournament. Taiji’s in the top three, he could make a run for the top. Desperado VS Kanemaru is next round, too, that will be a very interesting one.

My Score: 8.9/10
