Turning Point is this Saturday! Minoru Suzuki vs Josh Alexander is tonight! Could be something special. Check it out!

The only real selling point to tonight is a possible brutal wrestling classic between Minoru Suzuki and Josh Alexander. I expect anyone that watches tonight will be mostly watching for the main event, and that’s perfectly acceptable.

Here’s to hoping the rest of the show is at least tolerable!

Ratings:

  • Steve Maclin vs Laredo Kid: Maclin wins via Mayhem for All – ** ½
  • The IInspiration vs The Undead Bridesmaids: IInspiration wins via Powerbomb/Neckbreaker Combo – N/A
  • Hikuleo w/Chris Bey & ELP vs Doc Gallows w/Karl Anerson: Gallows wins via Double ChokeBomb – ***
  • Johnny Swinger, Hernandez & Fallah Bahh vs The Kiss Demon, Black Taurus & Crazzy Steve: Demon wins via Submission – It Was Fun
  • Minoru Suzuki vs Josh Alexander: Alexander wins via C4 Spike – *** ½

 

Results:

Steve Maclin vs Laredo Kid

Maclin starts with the heavy handed strikes and a few precision dives that look more impactful than the average Cruiserweight. Laredo tries to stay quick, but Maclin catches him. It’s not until Maclin misfires on his Crosshairs corner Spear that Laredo finally starts putting things together. Laredo strings a few moves together until he misses a Moonsault and Maclin connects with a Karl Anderson-esque Shogun Kick.

They start going for some rope run spots and Laredo gets some momentum but a Handspring Cartwheel DDT doesn’t really transition well, and Maclin responds with a big Lariat to lay both out for a second. Poison Rana by Laredo for a near fall. Laredo goes to the Top Turnbuckle, Maclin cuts him off, holds onto the Psycho Driver set up and Mayhem for All gives Maclin the win and the entrance into the X Division championship match at Turning Point.

The IInspiration vs The Undead Bridesmaids

Oh was there a match we were supposed to discuss? The Undead ones scared the IInspiration a little, there were a few comedy spots, but the Bridesmaids are jobbers…we all know this. It was slightly entertaining but I also zoned out for some of it.

Decay comes down to the ring after, surround The IInspiration and the Aussie duo are in the middle of the ring cowering. No strikes are thrown, but IInspiration shows really good fear and gets the Decay presence over really well. It works for what they were going for.

ImpactPlus Flashback Moment Victory Road 2020, Reno Scum vs Heath & Rhino

Chelsea gets a recap of becoming Number 1 contender for the Digital Media Championship and Matt Cardona is there basically saying he’s got next, but Massive Cassidy seems to not like that. So we might be seeing Cardona vs Cassidy at Turning Point.

After the brawl, Scott finds Moose in the back, says you want to never leave well enough alone, the championship will be Full Metal Mayhem at Turning Point.

Hikuleo w/Chris Bey & ELP vs Doc Gallows w/Karl Anerson

We see Gallows start quick and power trades aplenty. Quick dueling lariats, and right when Hikuleo starts getting the worse of the exchange ELP and Bey hop up on the ring and Hikuleo hits a Low Blow. It’s only good for a near fall, but then he starts toying with Gallows and Gallows fires up a little.

Hikuleo gets the best of Gallows in the corner, Chris Bey gets in a cheap shot and Bullet Club seems to be in pretty solid control right now. Also it’s weird to see Gallows playing the underneath babyface role. Two Big Boots from Gallows rock Leo, then a Pump Kick followed by a Superkick leads Gallows to finally having the advantage in the match. A few near falls and some flashy offense make Gallows look pretty in control.

Hikuleo blocks the Double ChokeBomb, Gallows hits the ropes, Power Slam from Leo for a near fall. Gallows rakes Leo’s eyes, hits the Double ChokeBomb, and gets the win. Decent big man match.

Johnny Swinger, Hernandez & Fallah Bahh vs The Kiss Demon, Black Taurus & Crazzy Steve

Swinger and Taurus start off, and Swinger gets a red bandana from Hernandez, so we get a little Toreador action before Taurus stops messing around. Taurus and Steve use some tandem offense before Hernandez can get in. Hernandez manhandles Steve, Bahh comes in and messes around before Swinger gets back in and Steve mounts a comeback.

Steve tags in The Demon, so now we get Demon versus Swinger. Demon submits Swinger with some half-assed looking Sleeper or something. It works for Swinger being a goof, but it was a bad spot. If the entire match wasn’t just gimmicky comedy, that would’ve been extremely bad.

Minoru Suzuki vs Josh Alexander

We see a few quick transitions from both men. Suzuki takes Josh down, goes for a Rear Naked Choke, but Josh gets out of it, grabs the Ankle, but Suzuki rolls out. Suzuki does stumble a little on his way up giving a small nod to the effectiveness of the Ankle Lock.

Josh has the momentum early and Suzuki is on the back foot. Alexander hits his Diving Low Crossbody through the ropes and Suzuki turns to the Suzuki-Gun style. He uses the guardrail, a chair, beats up a stage hand and now he’s working Alexander over on the ramp. Suzuki charges and hits a Yakuza Kick that sends Josh flying down the ramp.

Suzuki bounces Josh’s head off the apron, then takes him back into the ring. Suzuki goes for a few corner attacks, but Josh manages to catch Suzuki a few times until Suzuki adjusts his attack and gets the best of things. After a PK, Suzuki goads Josh, fires him up and we get the trading chops spot that is famous in Puroresu. They move to forearm exchanges and Josh keeps getting the worst of it.

Josh tries to fire out of things, Suzuki runs the ropes with him, takes the back and locks in the Sleeper Hold. Josh tries to fight it but Suzuki has most of it, until he transitions to the Gotch Style Piledriver, but Josh fights through that. Josh gets a couple moments of offense, only a near fall, Ankle Lock attempt but Suzuki gets out of it and they go for more mat wrestling where Suzuki tries for the Rear Naked but Josh counters again.

Both roll through countering C4 Spikes and Sleepers, finally Josh counters, hits a stiff Forearm, and then the C4 Spike puts away Suzuki.

Overall Score: 5.75/10

Not gonna lie, a rather pedestrian episode for a Go Home to Turning Point. I gave the show an extra quarter of a point purely for the return of Wrestle House. I know some people thought it was dumb, but it was just the right amount of campy cornball carny dumb crap that I can get behind.

As for the rest of the show, matches just felt really short and kinda boring. I realize that Maclin vs Laredo needed to leave meat on the bone for Turning Point, but that moved through the spots so quickly and ended just as abruptly that calling it average was generous. Hell, even the main event was underwhelming. Yes I’m more accustomed to the amazing matches Suzuki has had, so the fact this was…alright, just struck me as a little lackluster. Plus having a squash and comedy match on the same show card is a little too redundant in the category of  Stuff that doesn’t really matter – so maybe spread out the worthless stuff a little more than the final show before a bigger event.

Still it wasn’t terrible, the storyline movement was fun at times and The IInspiration may not inspire anyone with their wrestling, but their acting and comedy is good stuff.

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! Rey whips, Finn reverses but Rey kicks back!

Rey CLOBBERS Finn, whips him to ropes, but Finn reverses to kick and run, sunset flip! But Rey rolls through to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Finn flounders to a corner. Rey storms over, RAMS into Finn, then climbs up. Rey rains down fists, but Finn turns it around into an Electric Chair! But Rey turns that into a wheelbarrow BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Rey is frustrated as Finn survives that counter. Rey dropkicks Finn to ropes and dials it up, but Priest takes the 619 for Finn! Finn grabs Rey’s mask and RAMS him into the post! Rey is down on the outside while Raw goes to break!

Columbus gets Elevated!

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.
