PLAY BY PLAY

Edge is here!

The Rated R Superstar is in the Toyota Arena as he prepares for his final showdown with Seth Rollins! And after Rollins invaded Edge’s home, he’s bringing Rollins into HELL IN A CELL! Edge gets a mic and has a chair to take a seat in the ring. “So Seth, this all started between us seven years ago when you tried to use me as a stepping stone to notoriety. You spring forward seven years, and we find ourselves in each other’s way with a need to become Universal Champion. Which you caused from happening.” But this is so much more than that now. All those weeks after winning in Madison Square Garden, Rollins called Edge out while he wasn’t cleared to complete.

Rollins got greedy, called Edge’s bluff and went to Edge’s home. Not house, home. Houses are four walls but home is where Edge breaks bread, puts bandages on scraped knees and tucks his little girls into bed every night. “And you pissed all over it.” Rollins is watching backstage as Edge says this is out of his playbook. Edge once slapped John Cena’s dad! And here’s the thing: Edge underestimated Rollins. And that’d be like underestimating himself, which he never does. They’re so much alike, that when they see mistakes, they capitalize. Rollins underestimated Edge, Edge beat him decisively. Edge did that in MSG and Rollins stretchered Edge out of the world’s most famous arena.

Edge wants Rollins to know that he’s the only guy who comes close to matching him in passion, intensity and obsession for this. Close, but not equal. Rollins is not Edge Lite, Edge admits that. Rollins is his own man, he IS Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Rollins likes hearing that. Fans chant, “Seth, You Suck!” and Edge likes hearing that. But because Rollins is different, Edge has to end this. Otherwise, their families will be effected. Edge could go to Rollins’ home and encounter Becky. But Edge won’t do that. Edge will channel this feeling and change the look in Rollins’ eyes, leaving nothing but a husk of the man we see now!

A few weeks ago, Rollins said he felt sorry for Edge. That is a mistake. You never feel sympathy for the devil, and that’s what these two are. Edge won’t hesitate to put Rollins down. Edge had his opening last time, he will not hesitate this time. Their trilogy ends in Hell in a Cell! Rollins, listen real closely to this blueprint of Rollins’ future: “I am going to scar your SOUL! And that is a scar that you NEVER, EVER heal from!” Edge is ready to go to new depths to settle the score, but will it truly end at Crown Jewel?

 

King of the Ring Semifinals: Sami Zayn VS Finn Balor!

The Great Liberator used the Mysterio Family dysfunction to his advantage while The Prince battled the Swiss Cyborg straight-up. Will Sami have a trick to deny Balor the throne? Or will the Prince ascend to Crown Jewel and be a step away from the achievement of a lifetime?

SmackDown returns and Sami makes his entrance. Sami kisses the crown, that confident he’ll be wearing it soon enough. The bell rings and the two circle. Sami goes to a corner for defense but comes back to tie up with Balor. Sami waistlocks, Balor wrenches free and hammerlocks. Balor wrangles Sami to the mat as fans chant, “Sami Sucks!” Sami fights up, spins through but Balor puts the hammerlock right back on. Sami elbows out and then headlocks to scrape Balor’s face! Fans boo, Sami stalks Balor and kicks him low. Sami CHOPS Balor, whips him to ropes but Balor reverses. Sami sunset flips, Balor rolls through to basement dropkick! And then he arm-drags Sami to a cording hold!

Sami endures, Balor cranks the hold, and Sami grabs at Balor’s beard. The ref reprimands, Sami knees low and whips Balor to ropes. Balor ducks and dodges but Sami CLOBBERS Balor! Cover, TWO! Another try, TWO! A third, TWO! Sami grows annoyed but the fans rally up for Balor. Sami puts Balor on the ropes and chokes him! The ref counts, Sami lets off at 4 and he throws body shots. Sami wraps on a chinlock and traps an arm to bring Balor down. Balor endures, fights up as fans rally, but Sami knees him low again. Sami whips, Balor reverses and then throws Sami out! Balor builds speed to FLY! Direct hit at the ramp and fans fire up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Sami bumps Balor off buckles. Sami pushes Balor around, bumps him off more buckles, then soaks up the heat. Sami throws haymakers and says Balor’s in the ring with a king. Balor counter punches! Fans fire up as Balor sobats, CHOPS, but Sami forearms back! Balor hits a PELE! Both men go down and fans fire up again! Sami and Balor slowly sit up, Sami gets to ropes and Balor storms over to grab him by the hair! Balor bumps Sami off buckles, but Sami HOTSHOTS back! Sami grins as he goes up a corner, but Balor CHOPS him! Balor climbs up to join Sami, Sami fights with body shots, then Sami headbutts and shoves Balor down!

Sami mocks Balor’s pose, then adjusts to jump, into a dropkick! Balor covers, TWO!! Sami escapes but Balor drags him up into the dragon sleeper, for the ELBOW DROP- NO! Sami turns that into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Balor survives and Sami rolls his eyes in annoyance. Sami drags Balor up, reels him in, but Balor blocks the exploder! Sami drives in elbows again and again as fans fire up. EXPLODER into buckles! Sami goes to the corner, waits for Balor to stand back up, Sami runs in but Balor dodges the Helluva Kick! Balor GAMANGIRIS Sami down, climbs up top, but Sami trips him up!

Balor flops to the mat, Sami rolls him, with feet on the ropes! The ref sees it, though! The ref warns Sami to respect her authority, but then Balor trips Sami up to rain down rights! Fans fire up with Balor as he aims from a corner, SLINGBLADE! And then the SHOTGUN! Sami hits buckles and falls into the drop zone! Balor goes up top, to COUP DE- NO! Sami dodges and rolls him up, TWO!! Balor escapes again but Sami hurries! Clinch, but Balor wheelbarrows and victory rolls to a DOUBLE STOMP! Another SHOTGUN, and Sami flounders about! Balor fires up, runs corner to corner for a third SHOTGUN!

Sami’s down again, Balor goes back up! COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Balor wins!!

Winner: Finn Balor, by pinfall (advances to Crown Jewel)

And the Prince is that much closer to the throne! But who from Raw will meet Balor in the finals to fight for the crown?

 

Naomi VS Sonya Deville!

SmackDown finally gets to #FeelTheGlow as Naomi is finally given her return match! And speaking of, this is the return to the ring for Sonya, too! Will Sonya realize her abuse of power was a big mistake? Or will she knock Naomi down with an iron fist?

SmackDown returns and Sonya says the party is over. She has the music cut and she warned Naomi to not walk out of the office before Sonya is done talking. Don’t worry, there is still a match going on. But it will be Naomi VS Sonya and Shayna Baszler! The Queen of Spades makes her move to SmackDown a week early, and clearly by how Sonya is dressed, she was never really going to face Naomi at all. Will Naomi be able to defy a stacked deck?

Naomi VS Sonya Deville & Shayna Baszler!

Sonya says she makes the rules, this is tornado style. Ring the bell! The bell rings and Sonya SLAPS Naomi down! Naomi chases Sonya but Shayna grabs at Naomi! Naomi breaks free to ROUNDHOUSE! Sonya realizes she’s alone now and the chase is back on! Sonya goes around the way to slide back into the ring, but Naomi sees Shayna coming and ENZIGURIS her down! But Sonya KNEES Naomi down! Shayna kicks and CLUBS Naomi, Sonya throws her jacket off as she gets serious now. Shayna stands Naomi up and Sonya throws a heavy body shot. Shayna stands Naomi back up and Sonya says, “What did you do with the opportunity? You failed, like you always do!”

Sonya and Shayna still mug Naomi but Naomi BOOTS Sonya then fires off on Shayna! Naomi dodges Shayna to springboard and FLYING ROUNDHOUSE! Naomi puts Shayna in a drop zone but Sonya anchors Naomi! Naomi drags Sonya in, but Shayna gets the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! Sonya wants Shayna to finish Naomi, and then she mocks Naomi, “You wanted a match! What happens now?” Naomi is OUT, Shayna lets Sonya cover, Sonya & Shayna win!

Winners: Sonya Deville & Shayna Baszler, by pinfall

Fans boo but Sonya just takes a bow. Naomi gets up, gasping for air. Will Sonya continue to bully Naomi? Or will Naomi call upon someone with even more pull?

 

Hit Row is coming!

B-Fab, Top Dolla, Ashante “Thee” Adonis and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott are ready to upgrade from NXT 2.0 to SmackDown. And if you didn’t know, now you know!

 

Sasha Banks speaks.

“They say some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them. But in my case, it’s all of the above!” Now, we are just six days away from Crown Jewel where Sasha makes history when she takes back the title. Making history is nothing new to her since she’s done that since day one. But she’s also here to right some wrongs. Two weeks ago, it was Bianca Belair. Tonight, it’s Becky’s turn. Big Time Becks gets a big time beatdown as Sasha is in a whole new zone. She is here to destroy and conquer as the blueprint and our NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion.

 

Seth Rollins heads to the ring!

We heard from Edge, but now The Visionary and his half argyle, half polka dot suit get to respond. He promises to “unleash hell” but what does that mean? We find out after the break.

SmackDown returns and Rollins has a mic. He takes a moment while the fans chant, “Seth, You Suck!” But then Rollins laughs and says Edge really came out here, trying to convince all of us and himself that he has any chance against Rollins at Crown Jewel! That is the greatest joke he’s heard in some time! But let’s set the record straight: Rollins is “in no way intimidated or afraid to face Edge inside Hell in a Cell. And do you know why?” Rollins will tell us: Hell has already frozen over here in California! The man himself, Edge, finally said it! He finally uttered the words, as we all heard, Edge was wrong. Rollins is NOT Edge Lite! HAHAHA!

See? Edge is finally coming around to what we have all known all along: Rollins is BETTER than Edge in every single possible way! Rollins is in Edge’s head! He has out-manipulated the master of mind game, and if that isn’t an advantage, than what is? Rollins says he has a mental and physical advantage after the MSG stomp and the stretcher and the hospital stay. There’s no way Edge can be 100%! But then what does Edge do? “He’s got an ace up his sleeve: Hell in a Cell.” Now Rollins will say this one more time, and he will say it very slowly for all of those in the back so you can understand him. “I. Am in no way. Intimidated or afraid. To face Edge. Inside Hell in a Cell!!”

Edge is right about a couple of things, though. Fans troll Rollins with chants of “Harley Quinn!” and “We Want Edge!” Rollins says he and Edge are devils cut from the same cloth, but there is one major difference: Rollins has spent more time inside the Cell than Edge has! Rollins knows what that structure does to people, and what it has done to Rollins! Rollins has been calloused by the Cell, been scarred by the Cell, just look at him!! Rollins is who he is today because of the Cell. And Edge is right, the fairy tale does end at Crown Jewel. Just not the way Edge thinks. And Rollins knows this because he is The Visionary, he is the Revolutionary, he IS Seth Freakin’ Rollins.

 

Carmella & Zelina Vega talk backstage.

These two are so glad that they don’t have “that raggedy” Liv Morgan around. If Vega is to win, she has to go against the best. And we all know that Mella, the Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE is 10 times better than Liv and Toni Storm. Now, Vega won’t break Mella’s face, so she doesn’t need to have that mask> They can just have the good, clean, fair match as the classy ladies they are. Mella is so happy she’s facing someone who gets it! They’re both happy for each other, but will things stay friendly this close to the finals?

Queen’s Crown Semifinals: Zelina Vega VS Carmella!

SmackDown returns and Vega makes her entrance. Mella lets her ladies know she doesn’t need them but appreciates them being on standby. The bell rings and Vega continues to promise she won’t go after the face. Mella and Vega tie up, Mella goes for a roll up, TWO! Vega applauds that one, and then she returns it! TWO, and Mella applauds. They high five then circle. They tie up, Mella waistlocks, Vega pries free to switch. Mella bumps out, wrenches and wrangles Vega to the mat. Vega endures as Mella wants fans to cheer for her. Vega refuses to quit, she fights her way up, but Mella wrangles her right back down to go after the shoulder.

Vega still endures, and she fights up again, but Mella YANKS the arm. Mella has a wristlock, Vega uses ropes to flip through and she arm-drags Mella away. Vega then rolls Mella up, TWO! FABULOUS KICK! Vega gets away to a corner and Mella apologizes, that was out of habit. Vega snarls  while wiping away smudged lipstick. THESZ PRESS! Fast hands, too! Mella pushes Vega away and worries about her face! She calls her ladies back and they get the protective mask out. The ref starts a ring count but then Mella sees Liv has snatched the mask! Liv waves hi and asks if this is what she wants. Then she shows a punch! Mella runs into the ring, Vega gets her for a cradle! Vega wins!

Winner: Zelina Vega, by pinfall (advances to Crown Jewel)

Liv gets in the ring and Mella bails out since she has no protection! Will Mella ever get past her grudge with Liv? As for Vega, she sits on the throne and has both crown and scepter. Will La Muneca become Queen Zelina soon enough?

 

“Happy” Corbin & “Mad Cap” Moss are here!

These two are back again for another episode of Happy Talk! But what will these two bust up over this time? We find out, after the break.

SmackDown returns, Corbin and Moss are in their seats as Corbin welcomes us back tot he show putting smiles on people’s faces. He welcomes his guest, the funniest man he’s ever met, Mad Cap Moss. Moss, give ’em something. So there’s this hen. Every day she lays eggs, until one day, she just stops. No one knows why and the hen is devastated. Eventually, the hen goes to see a therapist. And miracle of all miracles, she’s got a diagnosis: an egg-sistential crisis! But speaking of chickens, Kevin Owens flew the coop and ran away to Raw because he couldn’t take the heat. What do you call it when Kevin Owens is writhing in pain? Just another Friday night!

Corbin says he can’t wait to hear all the new jokes Moss will have for all the new SmackDown additions, from Charlotte to New Day to Drew McIntyre. All prime targets! Here’s one now! Ricochet and McIntyre walk into a bar. The bartender says- Rick Boogs interrupts! He introduces himself, and says he isn’t here to listen to bad jokes. He came here to ROCK with the Intercontinental Champion, Shinsuke NakamuuurAAAAAAAAAAA~!! And here he comes! Nakamura and Boogs go to ringside, Pat McAfee gets on the desk to rock out with them, and even Moss can’t help but smile. Of course, he could just be looney.

Nakamura eggs Corbin on as he and Boogs go back up the ramp to continue the concert. But wait! Here come the Street Profits! Boogs adjusts his tune to join in as Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins bring the swag like nobody can! But in their last match on the blue brand, will the Profits finally get the blue belts back and whisk them away to Raw? We find out after the break!

SmackDown Tag Team Championships Street Fight: The Usos VS The Street Profits!

SmackDown returns and The Usos make their entrance. The introductions are made, the titles are raised, and there’s no rules but to win as the Profits get one last chance!

Hands start flying already and the Profits back the Usos down. Jey whips Dawks but he spins it around to the CASH-OUT! Jey goes out, Dawkins pursues but is thrown into barriers! Jimmy flips Ford but he lands on his feet to ROCK Jimmy! Ford has Jimmy in a corner, climbs up and finishes off his drink before raining down rights! Jey drags Ford down for a back suplex to NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Dawkins returns but Jimmy DECKS him with an uppercut! The Usos go out after Dawkins but he fights them off! They get the 2v1 advantage then RAM Dawkins into barriers! Fans fire up as Ford FLIES and takes out both Usos!!

Ford fires up with SoCal and Dawkins tells him, “Tez! Get the tables!!” They bring out a table! Fans are thunderous already as the Profits pick up the table, only for the Usos to DOUBLE DIVE into them!! All four men go down and fans are fired up again as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Jimmy gives Dawkins some ground ‘n’ pound. Fans want tables but Jey looks under the ring and finds no table on that end. Instead, he brings out kendo sticks! He tosses one to Jimmy then brings one in for himself. Jimmy SMACKS Dawkins right in the chest! Jey takes aim and SMACKS Dawkins on the back! Dawkins writhes and rolls, but he sits up as the Usos coordinate. Fans want it “One More Time!” and the Usos DOUBLE KENDO SMACK! Cover, TWO! Dawkins stays in this so the Usos just SMACK away on him over and over and from all sides! But Ford climbs up top and CROSSBODIES in! Down go both Usos!

Jey gets up but Ford sends him out! Ford dodges Jimmy and Jimmy hits post! Ford kicks, KICKS and BACK HANDS! Ford has a chair! Catch, and CALF KICK! Down goes Jimmy, Ford covers, TWO!! Jey returns, Ford dodges but runs into a POP-UP SAMOAN DROP! Jey hushes the Profits’ fans, then hypes up The Bloodline. “UCE!” “OH!” “UCE!” “OH!” “UCE!” “OH!” Jey runs into a SUPERKICK! Dawkins pops Jey up for Ford’s BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO!! Dawkins gets the kendo stick now and fans fire up as Dawkins SMACKS Jey! And SMACKS him again! Ford has the chair to SMACK Jey again! Ford goes to a corner, Dawkins Electric Chair lifts, but Jimmy makes the save!

Ford jumps over as Dawkins is POSTED! Usos DOUBLE SUPERKICK Ford! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for Dawkins! Cover, TWO!! The Profits are down and fans chant “This is Awesome!” The Usos put Dawkins dead center and they go up the corners. Fans still want tables, but Ford drags Jey off the top! Ford smacks Jey off the desk! Jimmy runs over but into a GAMANGIRI! And the ANOINTING! Ford FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, Jey drags Ford off in time! Jey picks Ford up, URENAGE through the table!! Ford is dazed in the wreckage, Dawkins flops out of the ring and hurries over. Dawkins CLOBBERS Jey from behind then rains down rights!

Dawkins bumps Jey off apron and ROCKS Jimmy with an uppercut! He blocks the superkick, waistlocks, O’Conner Roll, ONE and into an uppercut from Jey! SUPERKICK from Jimmy! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from The Usos! Dawkins is down the Usos go up top again! USO SPLASH, TIMES TWO! Cover, the Usos win!

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

The shirts say it all, #WeTheOnes who keep the blue gold on the blue brand! Will The Bloodline always rule SmackDown? As for the Profits, can they build back up once they move to Raw?

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch.

Any final thoughts on what Sasha said earlier tonight? Sasha wants to talk about greatness but Becky will tell us about greatness. Being undefeated in singles competition for almost three years. Kicking down doors so that others can waltz right in. Going off and having a baby like the god she is and then returning in record time to win a title. Greatness will be retaining this title in the biggest match of the year at Crown Jewel. Greatness is Big Time Becks, and she heads out to prove it! But will The Man come ’round only to stumble against The Boss?

Becky Lynch VS Sasha Banks!

SmackDown returns and Sasha makes her entrance. But wait! Here comes Bianca Belair to watch this up close and personal! The bell rings, Sasha and Becky focus on each other as they circle. They tie up, Sasha wrenches to a wristlock but Becky slips through to wrench back. Becky YANKS the arm, wristlocks but Sasha rolls and handsprings to get a headlock takeover.

The Boss gets a big win with help from The EST! Becky is upset, but will she get revenge at Crown Jewel? Or will she one way or another lose the SmackDown Women’s Championship to her challengers?

Meanwhile, Adam Pearce hustles the ring crew into setting up the contract signing set. The table and chairs are at the ready, and Pearce sets the microphones down because…

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

As always, Paul Heyman hands the belt over so The Tribal Chief can lift it up and cue the pyro. Then they go down the ramp, Heyman holding up the belt as a banner. Roman gets in the ring, is given the belt back, and he holds it up for the second round of pyro. And then, here comes BROCK LESNAR! He has his own pyro but he doesn’t waste time getting to it! Lesnar does take a moment to circle the ring before getting in, though. Lesnar takes his seat as fans chant, “Suplex City!” and he even puts his feet up on the table. Roman hands the contract to Heyman for him to review it, and Lesnar is patient. Heyman says it is everything Roman requested, so his counsel is to sign the contract.

Roman takes up the pen, signs his part, and then sets the contract down on the table. Pearce hands it to Lesnar, Lesnar just signs it without even looking. Roman laughs at Lesnar and says, “You must be some kind of a dumbass. A big dumb farmer, huh? You just sign it without even reading it? What’s wrong with you, man?” Lesnar says he read it this morning, with his Advocate, Heyman. Again Roman and Heyman have tension, and Lesnar is laughing as he  takes his leave! The Beast continues to show he can play mind games, but will he win the match with them? Will Heyman survive either way?


My Thoughts:

A really good go-home for SmackDown, though it was still clearly bogged down with usual go-home cliché. We got a lot of hype packages for the SmackDown draft choices, namely Drew McIntyre, Sheamus Hit Row, The New Day & Charlotte Flair. And we also got recap packages that while still well made were just filling up time so SmackDown could make it to 2 and a half hours. We got really good promos from Edge and Seth Rollins to hype up their Hell in a Cell match, that is going to be a lot of fun, but with them both going to Raw anyway, I honestly have no idea which way the match goes or if this even ends the feud. I mean, it should, and there’s even a way Rollins wins that writes Edge off until the Royal Rumble or beyond.

We got a great King of the Ring match with Balor naturally winning because for one, Sami refuses to go to Saudi Arabia, and two, going far in KOTR should be used to make up for Balor’s loss at Extreme Rules. The Queen’s Crown match had a promising start but nope, still disappointingly short. Liv could’ve still been why Mella lost, but did it have to be soon? This show was half an hour longer but the women’s match couldn’t be five more minutes? Naomi VS Sonya was also a bit disappointing, but the swerve did make sense. Sonya wasn’t going to play this fair against Naomi, and Shayna being Sonya’s choice sets things up for more story once the Draft “takes effect” next week.

The only good thing about Happy Talk was that it transitioned to Boogs rocking out to the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match starting. I don’t know why WWE/Vince keeps confusing cringe heat for genuine Heel heat, but that’s definitely happening with Corbin’s newest gimmick. But clearly we’re also getting Corbin & Moss VS Nakamura & Boogs that is really just a rehash of when Corbin, Nakamura and Boogs were a thing over the Wolf King’s crown. I’d rather Sheamus just blow this all up and he goes for the Intercontinental Championship and his Grand Slam. Just give a Brogue to everyone, especially Corbin and Moss.

I do love that the last half hour got to be commercial free, that was awesome. Becky VS Sasha was awesome stuff, and even Bianca’s moderate interference was alright. It was only fair since Bianca got screwed out, and so it was all a rotation through the three women fighting for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. What’s surprising is that Bianca is also facing Charlotte on Monday for the Raw Women’s Championship. It would make a lot of sense if Bianca won because she’s going to Raw anyway, so the title would stay there. That would then also mean Sasha wins at Crown Jewel to keep the SmackDown title on SmackDown. But then that does cut out a lot of the unpredictability of things, which is a bummer.

Then that contract signing to end things was actually perfectly done because it was short and Lesnar got to the point with his little mind game. I really hope Heyman does have a part to play this time, because Heyman could latch back onto Lesnar and leave Roman reeling.

My Score: 8.4/10

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?

 

Here are the NEW BOSJ 28 standings!

SHO: 5-1, 10 points
Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 4-2, 8 points
Taiji Ishimori: 4-2, 8 points
Hiromu Takahashi: 3-2-1, 7 points
El Desperado: 3-2-1, 7 points
Ryusuke Taguchi: 3-3, 6 points
Bushi: 3-3, 6 points
YOH: 2-4, 4 points
Master Wato: 2-4, 4 points
El Phantasmo: 2-4, 4 points
Robbie Eagles: 2-4, 4 points
Douki: 2-4, 4 points


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
