PLAY BY PLAY

Kevin Owens talks with Big E backstage.

For years, Kevin’s tried to show he’s not the guy who turns on people. Big E is rubbing cocoa butter on his body, he doesn’t know why Kevin cares. Kevin cares about very few people’s opinions but Big E’s is very important to him. The history with the New Day, this means a lot to him. He swears he didn’t really know what happened with Rollins. Big E says he has a match tonight, so he doesn’t really care. Big E leaves, but will Kevin prove himself tonight?

 

Seth Rollins heads to the ring.

He swaggers out with his title contract… and a blue trench coat? Rollins soaks up the heat from Louisville, then gets a mic. “Welcome to Monday! Night! Rollins! And as the undisputed Face of Raw, it is my duty to inform you that I AM a Visionary! I AM a revolutionary! I AM Seth! Freakin’! Rollins! And I am your next WWE Champiooon~!” Now Rollins was going to come out and wax poetic about how he will lead Team Raw to glorious, glorious victory at Survivor Series over the “bums” on SmackDown… Fans chant “You Look Stupid!” at him but he laughs it off. Like the morons here in Louisville know anything about fashion! Just look at ’em!

But enough of that! There’s a very important question to answer, based on what we just saw. “Who exactly is Kevin Owens?” Is Kevin the Prizefighter? Is he the hero? Is he the man who will do anything, put his body on the line and fight it out for the WWE Universe? Or is Kevin a snake? Is he a gutless, spineless coward? Is Kevin Owens a liar? What do the fans think? They boo Rollins but he says that he’s known Kevin a very, very long time. They go way back, coming up together in the industry. Slept on the floor at some Econo Lodge together. And for as long as Rollins has known Kevin, there’s one thing you can count on with him: He would stab you in the back any chance he got!

Don’t believe Rollins? Ask his old buddy, Sami Zayn! That didn’t work out there! Or Kofi and the New Day! Didn’t work out there, did it? Kevin is as low as it gets! He is a paramecium, an amoeba that cannot be trusted. You can’t trust him as far as you can throw him, and no one can throw Kevin that far. Kevin is a snake, a coward, gutless, soulless and a LIAR! After Rollins beats Kevin in the main event, not only will Kevin be the biggest liar, he’ll be the biggest LOSER in the world! But speaking of, here comes Kevin! Rollins wants Kevin to take it easy, but the chase is on! They go around, then in the ring, and Kevin blocks to DECK Rollins!

Rollins bails out but Kevin gets him by his blue jacket to get him up! Rollins scrambles into the ring to avoid the apron powerbomb and then runs away entirely! Kevin throws the contract at him, then dares the real coward to do something! Rollins is willing to wait until later tonight, but will he be made to eat his words?

 

RKBRO talks backstage.

Riddle says it is awesome to team up with the Street Profits! They’ll be like the Eternals, or Voltron, and become a super fighting robot! And then they can call themselves the Bro-Bot and get some sweet payback on Omos. Orton wants Riddle to remember that they are Raw Tag Team Champions so they have a target on their back. RKBRO can’t pick fights with giants. Omos attacked them last week! No, he attacked the Profits last week but Riddle had to play hero. And he got mauled for it! So let’s not do that again. But the Profits- Orton doesn’t care about the Profits. Ouch. Well we can talk about that later, but the Profits are right behind Orton…

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins are nonplus about what Orton said. Riddle assures them he still wants the smoke, but Orton says he meant every word. It doesn’t matter what happens in the ring, but if the Profits have a vendetta with the giant, Omos, then they’re on their own. The music hits and Orton heads out. Riddle says that went as best as possible. Wait up, Randy! Riddle scooters out behind Orton and the champs lead the way. Will the Stallion and the Viper be able to work with Tez & Dawks against the giant, the Phenomenal, and the Dirty Dawgs?

8 Man Tag: RKBRO & The Street Profits VS Omos, AJ Styles & The Dirty Dawgs!

Raw returns and Styles makes his entrance with Omos by his side. The Profits are already in the ring with Orton & Riddle while Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode wait at ringside.

Ziggler throws Riddle down by his hair! Ziggler drags Riddle over, tags in Styles, and Styles drops a knee on Riddle’s head.

Styles sits Riddle up, drives an elbow into the shoulder and then wraps on a chinlock. Riddle fights, gets to the ropes, and Styles lets off to stomp him down. Fans rally for Riddle, Styles drags him up and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Ziggler, leaving Roode hanging. Styles and Roode argue but Ziggler gets Roode to tag in. The Dawgs mug Riddle, Roode turns Riddle for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roode does push-ups to show off now. Roode stomps Riddle, fans rally up for Riddle but Roode steps on his neck! The ref counts, Roode lets off, and Riddle sputters. Ziggler tags in, he brings Riddle up to scrape laces off his face.

Ziggler goes for a foot but Riddle tags in Orton! Orton rallies on the Show-Off, duck sand hits the POWERSLAM! Roode gets in but he gets a POWERSLAM!

Winners: AJ Styles, Omos & The Dirty Dawgs, by pinfall

RKO for Ziggler!! The Viper struck to remind everyone who the champions are! And Riddle apologizes for not listening again. Will the champions have to be very careful with so many teams targeting them?

 

Rey and Dominik Mysterio talk backstage.

Kevin Owens finds them and wants to let Rey know he values his opinion. He’s looked up to Rey his entire career, and he wants Rey to believe him. Rey says sorry, he’s a bit busy, Adam Pearce made a match. Kevin just wants Rey to say he believes him. Yeah, Rey does believe him. They can talk more later. The music hits, Rey and Dom go to the ring! And waiting for them is Adam Pearce himself. We learn what this is about, after the break!

 

Veer Mahaan is coming.

A million dollar arm and bottomless aggression make him priceless, but when will he prove his worth?

 

Raw returns and…

Pearce has a mic to tell Rey & Dom thanks for joining him. But before getting into why, let’s talk Survivor Series in two weeks. Since 1987, we’ve seen history making moments. The debut of The Undertaker, The Rock and The Shield! And this is the one time a year where the champions of Raw take on the champions of SmackDown, culminating in the 5v5 elimination matches, where one-by-one, superstars are eliminated until only one team stands victorious. That match alone has propelled like Roman Reigns and Randy Orton into superstardom, and the pressure this year is even bigger. Team Raw has to live up to last year’s team, the clean sweep of 5-0!

That is why Rey & Dom are here, and that brings Pearce to his announcement. It’s almost embarrassing to admit this, but when the roster for Team Raw was announced, he couldn’t help but feel like he made a huge mistake. He’ll explain. Every member of Team Raw is a former WWE Champion. Every member, except for Dominik. That is an issue for Pearce. He sees the confusion and wants them to listen. Dom has a ton of potential, but Team Raw needs to win. So don’t get him wrong. Dom, as of right now, you are still on Team Raw. That is, unless he loses right now to… To how? Pearce leaves before anyone comes out! Rey tells Dom it’s fine, but then it’s BOBBY LASHLEY!!

Raw Survivor Series Team Qualifier: Dominik Mysterio w/ Rey Mysterio VS Bobby Lashley w/ MVP!

The All Mighty makes a return to action, and Montel Vontavius Porter makes a return to television! Will the Hurt Business get back on the right track destroying Dominik? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns, the bell rings and Lashley stares down Dom. They tie up, Lashley puts Dom in a corner but lets off as the ref counts. Lashley taunts Rey, Dom gets a headlock! Lashley powers up to SLAM Dom down, then runs to run Dom over! Lashley glares at Rey, brings Dom up and puts him in a corner. Lashley goes corner to corner to RAM into Dom! Lashley brings Dom up and reels him in for a suplex! Lashley holds Dom up but Dom fights free with knees! Dom baits Lashley into a corner, slips out and ROCKS Lashley with a forearm! Dom shoulder sin, throws another forearm, then goes up top to CROSSBODY! But Lashley catches him!

Dom gets free again, baits Lashley in again and dumps him out! Lashley lands on his feet but Dom PLANCHAS! Lashley catches Dom again, pop shim around to a fireman’s carry and Dom flails, but he still gets POSTED! Lashley snarls, stalks Dom and Pearce watches backstage. Lashley puts Dom in the ring, looms over him, and Dom can only flounder to ropes. Lashley stands on Dom, the ref counts and Lashley lets off. Lashley brings Dom up for the COMPLETE SHOT! Rey coaches Dom but it’s no use, the HURT LOCK is on! Dom flails, but Lashley won’t even let him tap! Lashley KNEES and CLUBS Dom, then slides him out to the floor!

Lashley paces, wanting a count out victory. Dom writhes, Lashley gets impatient and goes back out. Lashley looms over Dom, drags him back up, fireman’s carries again but Rey pulls Dom down! Lashley BOOTS Rey down! And then fireman’s carries to POST Dom again! The ring count passes 5 of 10 but Lashley puts Dom in at 7. Lashley aims from a corner, Dom staggers up, into a SPEAR!! But Lashley doesn’t even care to cover, the ref checks on Dom but then Lashley drags Dom up into the HURT LOCK!! Dom taps, Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by submission (joins Raw’s Men’s Survivor Series team)

The All Mighty shows no mercy, and now Pearce has a team of all former world champions. Will Lashley be the ace Pearce needs so that Raw sweeps again?

 

The Alpha Academy prepares backstage.

Chad Gable wants Otis to really focus on these concepts. Seth Rollins comes by, and he knows Otis has his match with Big E. Love to see it. They’re going to show Big E he is NOT the face of Raw. But while they’re all here, can Rollins asks? What do they think about Kevin Owens? Rollins is right, right? Kevin is scum, right? Gable says Rollins has come to the right guy. Gable just graduated with a Masters Degree and perfect 4.0 GPA. Now having said that, Gable can categorically confirm that Kevin IS an enormous liar! Much in the same vain as Aaron Rodgers. How disgusting. And Big E? No, he does not have what it takes to be the face of Raw. But he’ll learn.

Tonight, the Master hands out free lessons, courtesy of the Alpha Academy. Rollins loves it! And knew they’d see things his way. But gorilla is the other way. But will Big E be the one teaching a lesson here tonight?

Big E VS Chad Gable w/ Otis!

Raw returns and the Alpha Academy make their entrance. The bell rings, Gable and Big E circle, tie up, and Gable waistlocks. Gable headlocks, spins, hammerlocks, spins Big E to a cravat, then shifts to a wrench and wristlock. Big E wrenches and wristlocks back, but Gable rolls, bridges, and handsprings to wrench again. Gable whips, Big E reverses but Gable goes up and over. Things speed up. Gable ducks and jumps and Big E hurdles to hit Gable with a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO! Big E drags Gable to the apron and CLUBS him on the chest over and over! Big E goes to the apron, takes aim, and APRON SPLASHES! Gable sputters and Big E wants to check the sternum. Cover, TWO!

Big E keeps cool and he brings Gable up. Big E puts Gable on the top rope but Gable elbows back. Gable then rolls back, but Big E elbows him away. Gable blocks a boot, puts that leg in the ropes and then hits a DRAGON SCREW on the other! Gable gets that leg and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Another KNEE JAMMER! Then he YANKS the leg, and hits a SPINNING TOEHOLD! Otis cheers Gable on as he wrenches Big E’s foot. Big E clubs but Gable YANKS the leg again. Big E hobbles, Gable CHOP BLOCKS! Gable runs to CHP BLOCK again! Big E falls but gets up again, only for Gable to run again. Big E sends Gable out for a moment of reprieve, but Gable returns fast!

Big E catches Gable, but Gable turns things into HIS Belly2Belly! Gable goes to a corner, climbs up top, and MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Big E gets up but Gable throws forearms. Gable runs, but Big E scoops! Gable slips off and throat chops! Then he rams Big E into a corner, for the CHAOS THEORY!! Bridging cover, TWO!! Big E escapes and Otis grows frustrated. Gable shouts, “FOR THE ACADEMY!” Gable goes to Electric Chair Lift Big E?! He gets him up but Big E clubs free and pushes Gable to a corner. Gable dodges, but runs into the Urenag-E! Big E brings down the straps and fans fire up. Gable staggers up into the scoop, BIG ENDING! Cover, Big E wins!

Winner: Big E, by pinfall

But Otis gets in and stares down with the champ. The ref keeps the peace but Big E dares Otis to do something. Will The Dozer get his chance to run full steam at the Powerhouse of Positivity?

 

Kevin Owens pleads his case again.

Big E, Rey Mysterio, and this locker room leader matter to Kevin.  Kevin wants to ask if R-Truth believes in him. Truth does believe in KO. And in Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the monsters under the bed. They spoke to him. And that leprechaun in the hood! Truth saw him! And Truth believes the earth is flat, but round in certain parts. Kevin sighs and leaves as Truth goes on about Mermen and Mermaids. Can Kevin find someone who believes he’s a changed man? Or has he simply burned too many bridges, and there’s no going back?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville meet with the Raw Women’s Division.

They thank everyone for being here, and Sonya knows they know about the five chosen women. Congratulations to Carmella, Queen Zelina, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan & Bianca Belair. They decided to make a friendly competition among the five, and the winner gets a chance at The Man, Becky Lynch, for the title. Liv is so excited! This is the opportunity she’s been hoping for! “Doudrop” Piper Niven speaks up to ask Sonya that when they announced the team, Piper tried to be cool about this so we didn’t have to do this here. But why wasn’t Piper included? Instead of, say, Bianca Belair. Bianca had her title opportunity, but she crashed ‘n’ burned. Oof…

Becky’s moved on from Bianca, why hasn’t Bianca moved on from Becky? Wow, first of all, who does Doudrop think she’s talking to? Pearce keeps the peace, and management felt this was the best decision. Well if they’re all speaking their minds, Dana Brooke wants to know why she wasn’t considered. And Liv has been waiting? Dana’s been overlooked than every single one of them! Time they show her some respect! Nikki A.S.H. wants to talk about team worthiness, and has actually BEEN champion. Oh boohoo. Quite the fall from grace, then. It’s hard to stay up at the top. Especially when it’s so much fun looking down on you from up here.

Rhea still defends Nikki. If Mella talks to her like that again- Wait, everyone, hold on! The decisions are all final! But who wins out of the Fatal 5 to take on Big Time Becks?

 

WrestleMania is heading back to Dallas, Texas!

It was back in 2016 that Dallas broke the attendance record, and had a huge night all its own. But now, WrestleMania 22 is going to be so big, it’ll be TWO NIGHTS! April 2nd and 3rd, get ready to see all the stars shine in AT&T Stadium!

 

Backstage interview with the Mysterios.

Kevin Patrick asks Rey how Dom is doing, and it would seem Dom suffered a neck strain. He’ll be alright, but what we just saw was BS. Rey knows people are questioning Kevin’s integrity, but we should question Pearce’s! Dom was announced to be part of the team! If Pearce wanted Dom out of the match, he could’ve just done it! But it seems The All Mighty isn’t here to win, he’s here to do damage, and he just did that to Rey’s son. Kevin leaves, Austin Theory sneaks a selfie! Theory aside, will Rey look to take this up with management?

 

WWE 24/7 Championship: Reggie VS Drake Maverick!

To keep the slippery sommelier from getting away again, Rockstar Spud has Reggie in the ring! Will the best laid plans still fail when they’re 1v1? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Maverick makes his entrance. The title is raised, and the bell rings on this very conventional match. The two tie up, go around, Reggie puts Maverick on the ropes. The ref counts, Maverick turns things around and ROCKS Reggie! Then CLUBS him down! Cover, ONE! Maverick scowls, Reggie ROCKS him with haymakers! Reggie EuroUppers, whips Maverick to ropes, but Maverick reverses. Reggie goes Matrix under the lariat! Then handsprings, handsprings again and dropkicks Maverick down! Maverick flounders, Reggie throws off his suit jacket! Reggie runs corner to corner to handspring clothesline!

Maverick falls, but R-Truth and a ref come out. He’s clearly waiting for this to end to pounce, but the Hurt Business pounces on him first! Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin mug Truth at the ramp, Reggie gets distracted and Maverick rolls him up! Maverick wins!!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

But Akira Tozawa betrays Maverick and rolls him up! Tozawa wins!!

Winner: Akira Tozawa, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

The Hurt Business throw Truth into the ring then go after Maverick! And Reggie! Tozawa is wary of them, but he doesn’t see Corey Graves coming!? Graves rolls Tozawa up, and wins?!?!

Winner: Corey Graves, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Graves has the first title in a long time! But Byron Saxton rolls Graves up! BYRON WINS!!

Winner: Byron Saxton, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Byron has his first title EVER! This is historic! But then Maverick rolls Byron up, and he wins it back!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Rockstar Spud is a two-time champion in one night, but then he sees the Hurt Business coming for him! He gets in the ring, where Reggie hits him with a CORKSCREW CROSSBODY! Cover, Reggie wins the title back!

Winner: Reggie, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Well, back to square one for Maverick’s team as Reggie flips right out of the ring! The chase continues, will anyone keep Reggie down for long?

 

Becky Lynch heads to the ring!

The Man comes around to Louisville because she wants to see who’s coming for her gold next. Of course, she’ll be taking on Charlotte Flair in Champion VS Champion, will she be able to focus on one match-up while learning of another? Will these five be able to work as a team after fighting as every woman for herself?

Raw Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 5: Rhea Ripley VS Liv Morgan VS Bianca Belair VS Zelina Vega VS Carmella!

Raw returns and Piper walks over to Bianca. Bianca says she has no time for this. Well that’s Piper’s problem, too. After being drafted to Raw and only here for three weeks, Bianca loses, only to get another opportunity? Piper and the other women- No no no, Piper is clearly speaking for just herself. The EST heads out, will Piper be right about Bianca dropping the ball again?

Out next is the Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE, who puts on her protective mask. Then Liv, Queen Zelina and Rhea Ripley make their entrances, in that order. Bianca calls Becky out from the ring, but Mella and Zelina throw her out and attack! The bell hasn’t rung, this isn’t a match yet, but Rhea RAMS Mella into barriers! Liv is after Zelina but Zelina RAMS her into the apron! Bianca bounces Vega off the desk! Becky says this is why no one can beat her. The chaos continues, referees rush out to stop the brawl, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns, the brawling has stopped and the five women get in the ring. The bell rings, Mella FABULOUS Kicks Liv down and Zelina kicks Bianca. Mella goes after Rhea, Bianca throws Zelina out and Rhea does the same to Mella. Fans fire up as Rhea and Bianca are face to face, but then Zelina and Mella attack from behind. Rhea trips Mella to rain down fists, Bianca DECKS Zelina and goes out after her! Mella gets to ropes, Rhea clubs her out. Bianca kicks Zelina around, Rhea ROCKS Mella. Bianca sends Zelina into apron, Rhea sends Mella into barriers. Becky talks trash to Bianca for losing four times total.

Becky is the most surprised of anyone that Liv just won! She’s already playing it off as a lucky win, but will Liv get lucky again when she takes Becky on? Becky raises the belt on top of the desk but Liv gets on the desk to stare her down. Becky backs down for now, but will she have no choice but to admit Liv is a threat?

 

Big E walks the halls.

Seth Rollins comes in and says he comes in peace. Rollins has his match with Kevin, but he just wants to understand where Big E’s head is at. There is no way anyone can believe the words that come out of Kevin’s mouth. Yes, Rollins did pop Big E, but it is much better to trust the devil you know than the one you don’t. Big E tells Rollins that he doesn’t trust either of them. But Rollins can bet his sweet cheeks that Big E will be ringside to make sure this all goes smoothly. Both men laugh sarcastically and then Rollins heads out. Will the Visionary be able to keep his focus on the Prizefighter when the world champion is ringside?

Big E heads to the ring!

Just as promised, here he is! He’ll be heading to Survivor Series to take on Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, but will Big E have plenty to think about with tonight’s main event?

Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens!

Raw returns and… Austin Theory comes out? He’s vlogging on his phone as he heads to ringside, and gets a selfie with Byron, Jimmy and Corey. He wants one with Big E but Big E slaps the phone down! Theory doesn’t appreciate that, but he walks away and Rollins makes his entrance. Rollins gets a mic to say, “Look, I know I’ve got a match with Kevin Owens right now, but there’s something I gotta get off my chest before we get to this. This is important, this is important. This has been weighing on me, weighing on my conscience really for an entire week.” Rollins takes a moment, then says he knows he came out here and called Kevin a liar. That is true, but Kevin isn’t the only one lying.

Rollins tells Big E that what happened last week was a plan between him and Kevin. He’s sorry, it was a plan they came up with weeks in advance. Rollins and Kevin said they needed to make Big E understand he’s not the face of Raw. Rollins took the shot, Kevin took advantage. Trust the devil you know, now the one you don’t. Rollins is coming clean because unlike Kevin, Rollins is a man of integrity! Kevin storms out and Rollins keeps defending he’s the one telling the truth. Kevin fires off hands on Rollins!

My Thoughts:

Another mixed bag episode for Raw here. We got great action for the most part, but a lot of story elements were the usual mess we’re stuck with because of Vince and the talent cuts and all the problems that’ve been building for awhile. The promo with all the women wrestlers on Raw basically pointed out the flaws, except I don’t think WWE meant for it to be meta. How dumb of them to one, announce these teams online over the weekend, and then two, make it a situation of “oh no~, can they coexist~?” For that matter, that’s all the teams, the men and the women. But in the case of the women, they don’t even put the tag champions together?

The Fatal 5 was still great, but obviously they’re giving us Bianca VS Piper, and I knew Liv was winning with her confronting Becky backstage last week. I just wish the order of things were different. There was some point where they could’ve done this differently but Vince and team missed it and now it’s a bit sloppy. Same with the men, where Dom was on the team but then they have him lose that spot to Lashley, and Rey is the one to point it out without it meant to be meta. This better not turn into another case where the McMahons come out, apologize, blame someone else, and then give us a small stretch of good before returning to right where we are now.

The 8 Man Tag was still a really good opening match. I was hoping Styles, Omos & the Dirty Dawgs would become a faction but I guess Omos & Styles are still part of the tag division so they didn’t get along with the Dawgs and then turned on them. There is probably a big contender’s match in the works, and honestly, I don’t want Omos & Styles again. The Profits should win, but no team turns. Orton is still who he is with Riddle, the Profits are still who they are, we just get a really good title match between Face teams. WWE needs to spice things up, so simply going away from Face(s) VS Heel(s) for one match would help.

While Reggie VS Maverick as a traditional match looked rather lame, I actually really liked that we got another title hot potato moment. No offense to Reggie, but I kinda wish Maverick kept the title at the end there. The 24/7 Championship stuff needs spicing up and that would mean someone else has the belt for a stretch. Maverick’s lost so much in the grand scheme of the WWE, him having a lengthy reign would be nice. And for the most part, the story of the world title and Kevin Owens’ morality was a good thread through the night. Kevin definitely seemed desperate to find someone who accepted him as a Face, and him finding no one basically made him snap and go back to Heel.

Kevin and Rollins had a great match, the way Big E messed Kevin up was fairly clever, and I really hope they give us a Triple Threat title match. Too bad TLC was cancelled in favor of #DayOne, that’s a bunch of BS.

My Score: 8.1/10

Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal!

Another year, another battle for that coveted $150,000 diamond ring! But things are a little different, as Maxwell Jacob Friedman, our NEW AEW World Champion, has the prerogative to not participate in this match. Instead, think of this more as a #1 contender’s battle royal with the winner getting to choose when and where they face MJF for that ring. Ricky Starks vows that when he wins this match, he’ll make next week’s title match into a Winner Takes All! Will this be an Absolute Victory for Ricky Starks? Or will someone else in this crowded field take that diamond ticket instead?

Fans go wild as Starks makes his entrance, and then they go wild as “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry makes his entrance. We already have Brian Cage, The Butcher, The Blade, Orange Cassidy, Captain Shawn Dean, Matt Hardy, Ethan Page,  Lee Moriarty, W. Morrissey, Kip Sabian, Dalton Castle and The Boys at ringside, but wait! Here comes The Natural, Dustin Rhodes! Fans fire up for the hometown hero, the bell rings, and everyone rushes into the ring!

Winner: Ricky Starks (#1 contender to the Dynamite Diamond Ring)

But to rain on the parade already is MJF! The AEW World Champion and #TripleB, the Big Burberry Belt, are here with a mic as fans boo hard as they can. The fans then cheer on Starks and MJF smirks. MJF tells Starks, “I’ll be with you in one second.” MJF then says, “Bryan Danielson, a little birdy told me you didn’t wanna show up tonight, and I think I know the real reason why. The real reason why is because you’re terrified of me. And I don’t blame ya, bud. After what I did to your boy, Willy Reegs, I’d be scared, too.”

Fans boo but MJF says, “Because I’m a bad, bad man. And that’s why in a week from now, I’m gonna be a FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, FOUR-TIME, F-F-F-FOUR-TIME beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion. And I will still be the holder of the grandest prize of ’em all, the Triple B, baby! Now Richard, people seem to really like you around here, huh?” Fans cheer Starks on again, and MJF says “They talk about you like you’re some underutilized god of professional wrestling. And trust me, you are very talented, you really are. But you wanna know the truth, bud? Here’s the truth, Absolute.” Fans tell MJF to STFU but he just shrugs that off.

MJF says the truth is that in comparison to MJF, Starks is the Absolute drizzling sh*t! Or should MJF say, “You’re a roody poo candy ass!” After all, Starks stole literally everything else from that guy. But no offense, Richard, you’re just “a Dollar Store Dwayne.” So MJF will call Starks “The Pebble.” So here’s what happens next week in the main event of Dynamite, little Pebble. Fans chant for the “PEBBLE~! PEBBLE~!” MJF says he’s gonna put The Pebble in his pocket, hop in his brand new Porsche, because unlike all the “simple-minded humanoids” of Austin, MJF is rich. MJF will drive Pebble to the nearest body of water, take him out of his pocket, and skip “your scrawny little pigeon-toed ass all the way back to Billy Corgan’s NWA so you can wrestle on YouTube where you belong!”

Fans boo but Starks just smirks. MJF says “Facts don’t care about your feelings, Texas!” But MJF doesn’t care that Starks is Absolute, because MJF is a Generational Talent, and his Reign of Terror has only just begun. MJF soaks up the heat and then Starks pushes right past him to get a mic of his own. Fans cheer on Starks but MJF tells them all to shut up. Starks tells “Maxi Pad”, which fans now chant at MJF, that he should’ve expected a fifth-rate Roddy Piper to come out here and try to steal the spotlight. Oh~, he trashed the city! OH~! He trashed the fans! How much more shtick does MJF got? Cuz the low hanging fruit is running dry!

Starks says every week, MJF walks out here smelling like paint thinner and ass, having spray tanned his eczema to where if he took his shirt off, his back would look like he laid on an ant colony for seven hours. MJF has his crappy shoes, pants that are never ironed, a shirt that is too small, that stupid scarf, and that even dumber haircut, and he acts like he’s better than Starks?! Give us a break!! Fans are fired up hearing that! “Everything about you screams, ‘Cheap.’ The cheap suits, the cheap shoes, the cheap heat. Oh my God, and you are our new AEW Champion, huh? Well here’s the thing. With that AEW Championship comes a big responsibility that you know nothing about!

“The difference between you and me is that when these people got behind me, I gave them a reason to keep going. When they put faith in you, you let them down. When Regal put faith in you, you let him down. But brother, when it comes to Ricky, I delivery on time, every time, every night, every week, every month! And you can take your little ass to Greece for three months because oh~, you didn’t get paid enough! Oh~, you got out politicked by somebody smarter than you! But the fact remains is that I’ve been here, busting my ass. You wanna talk responsibility? Let’s talk about the fact that you avoid responsibility! You avoid any type of pressure.

“I show up to sign meet ‘n’ greets, where you, you don’t care! You just blow it off because hey! Everybody hates Max, so he has nothing to lose, right? Yeah, well, guess what, buddy? There comes a lot of responsibility when it comes to people actually liking you. And beside your nose being a lot darker than the rest of your body, me on the other hand, I live with dignity, I live with respect. You know nothing about that! When I lived in my car in South Austin, guess what I was doing? I was grinding! I knew the responsibility of taking care of myself! When it comes to that woman right there, it’s MY responsibility to get her a car, to get her a house.

“And you think because you paid people, because you kissed ass, that Maxwell ‘I’m better than you,’ you can get whatever you want? Please, gimme a break.” Fans are all fired up! Starks tells MJF that next week is a BIG deal. Starks is putting up and shutting MJF up for once in his miserable, narcissistic, punk-ass little life! MJF doesn’t deserve the title but Starks does! Wrestling on YouTube? Guess what? Been there, done that, busted his ass to get here! He never needed a name to make it here, and he doesn’t need one to beat MJF’s ass! He is Ricky Starks, he is stand ten toes down right here.

Next week, Starks smacks that mole of MJF’s neck, stomps a new hole right into MJF, and then he takes that title! Fans are thunderous for Starks as he says he’s doing MJF a favor he’s never had done in his life: Starks takes the responsibility off this “little boy’s” plate. MJF LOW BLOWS Starks! Fans boo as MJF takes off the belt, the scarf, and brings out the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF puts the ring on, takes aim, and fans shout “F YOU MAX!” But Starks dodges to SPEAR!! Fans are THUNDEROUS as MJF falls out of his shoes and then falls out of the ring! Starks holds up the world title, will he be holding that and the Dynamite Diamond Ring at the end of Winter is Coming?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“May 12th, 2021 was when I lost the TNT Championship. From that time ’til now, I feel like a lot of people have all said to me, ‘Darby Allin is being slept on. Darby Allin is forgotten about.’ Well it’s up to me to wake everyone up, and I’m gonna win that TNT Championship. I said that this crowd chants one thing, ‘Joe is gonna kill~ you.’ Well Joe, you’re gonna have to bury me with that TNT Championship, because I am not leaving Austin, Texas without it.”

Samoa Joe responds.

“Darby Allin, the curious little dead boy. I know exactly what you see when you look at me. You see a crucible that you wanna put yourself through. You see the violence that I inflict and you say to yourself, ‘That is a trial I can endure.’ Well, Darby, tonight you’re gonna learn that curiosity has a price that is about to get real expensive.” Will the Relentless Underdog put it all on the line just to get back that title? Or will he fail to dethrone the King of Pro-Wrestling Television?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“You think last week got a little outta hand? I don’t. In fact, I’m starting to really, really like The Cowboy, Hangman. Because he fell off his horse, dusted himself off, and got right back in the saddle, and he did his talking with his fists. There’s not enough of that around here. There’s too much talking. This is All Elite Wrestling, not All Elite Talking. There is no Blackpool Microphone Club. This is COMBAT! This is the sport of kings! Tonight, myself, Wheeler, Claudio, this Weekend at Final Battle, this Friday night on Rampage, we bring back 100 proof, in-your-face, ass-kicking wrestling! Jericho Appreciation Society. I’m so over the Jericho Appreciation Society.

“I’m gonna be out there tonight, just to make sure there’s no sports entertainment shenanigans. And this weekend, we put the JAS in our rearview mirror for good! Hangman Page, you want another piece? You know where to find me.” The Maniac heads out, but will he be able to focus on the JAS with the Cowboy coming for him?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Samoa Joe VS Darby Allin!

#TwoBeltJoe has been intimidating and brutal even when he’s had no belts. How much more vicious will he become in order to keep his throne as King of TV?

The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and we see if Darby wins, or even survives!

The bell rings and fans rally as Darby and Joe stare down. Fans do sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe steps up to Darby, daring him to do something. So Darby fires off fast hands! Joe puts Darby in a corner, but Darby dodges him to fire off hands again! Joe shoves Darby away, but Darby SHOTGUNS Joe out of the ring! Darby keeps moving to DIVE, but Joe casually moves aside and Darby crashes into railing! Joe grins as he goes back for Darby while fans lose their minds. Joe CLUBS Darby, drags him up, and sits him on the apron to then SWING him into the railing! And SWING into the apron! And back into railing!

Fans are torn but Joe soaks it all up. Joe goes back for Darby, and he tears up the floor mats! Joe drags Darby up and smacks him off the apron. Darby flounders around in a daze, but Joe drags him back up. Joe puts Darby in the ring, just to drag him out after refreshing the ring count. Joe then hits Darby with a BIG back suplex to the floor! Darby writhes, but at least that was a padded part. Joe refreshes the count himself now, and he drags Darby back up. Joe brings Darby to the bare patch now, and fans boo while the ref counts. Darby fights the lift but Joe still gets Darby up! Darby bends Joe’s fingers to get free!

Darby runs in, but Joe POWERSLAMS Darby to the bare concrete!! Joe shouts at Darby, “Do you wanna die, Darby?! HUH!?!” The ref checks Darby while AEW goes picture in picture.

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian and Orange Cassidy.

Tony Schiavone says there is a No Physicality Agreement in place as these two are here to talk. What is on Cassidy’s mind? Cassidy doesn’t know what Kip is doing, but he doesn’t need to do this. If he wants a title shot, just ask. Kip says, “How convenient, my sweet little Clementine. You wait until an unprovoked attack by Dustin Rhodes. I’m hurt. You just don’t want me at my best.” Cassidy says if Kip isn’t gonna fight this Friday on Rampage, then find someone who can. Kip ponders the idea, and heads out. Cassidy asks Schiavone if that’s a yes. Seems so. Then who will crazy Kip find as a Superbad proxy to take on the All-Atlantic Champion?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Initially, what started out as a deliberate desecration of the legacy of ROH has now led me to become the greatest ROH Champion of all time. Oh, the irony. Claudio, you don’t have the belief that you can beat me when it counts and become the ROH World Champion once again. Isn’t that true? That is why I’m gonna beat you at Final Battle, and it is why you’re gonna have to join the Jericho Appreciation Society. But Claudio, I am telling you this right now, it is going to be the best thing for you. I am looking so forward to taking you under my wing, and most importantly, I am looking so forward to beating you at Final Battle. I’ll see you then, Claudio. All Honor The Ocho.”

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall

Fans fire up and Moxley joins his brothers in the club to celebrate! Tony Schiavone joins them all to interview them. He knows they just got a big win ahead of a big night on Saturday, but they have to talk about what happened at Full Gear. Here is an interview Schiavone did with William Regal a few weeks back that might explain some things.

The footage plays and Schiavone talks with his “long time friend,” Regal. Regal says it will be 30 years in January. Full Gear was unbelievable, but Schiavone wanted to know about how all that transpired. Regal told Schiavone before that “people are only going to see this if something bad happens to me. And when you’re somebody like me, and spent your life being as horrible as I have, you’re always expecting something bad to happen.” Schiavone says Regal is the Villain of Villains. Well, Regal took great exception to what MJF did to Schiavone. And MJF seems to be made about emails and this and that, so Regal just gave MJF what he wanted.

MJF is world champion now. But do you know that saying, “Be careful what you wish for?” Because now, everyone in the company will be chasing MJF. Regal realized a few months ago that the three veteran members of the Blackpool Combat Club don’t need Regal around anymore. He’s “surplus to requirements.” But he knew they wouldn’t let him go, either. But he needed to show them why they don’t need him, and why they can teach Wheeler Yuta how to become the greatest professional wrestler in the world, because they’ve all got that capability. “But you have to lead by example.”

So hopefully, and Regal knows he will, because Moxley is a very calculating man, Moxley will understand this. “The reason I did what I did, and to lead by example, was to teach you the final thing that I could ever teach you. Always stay one step ahead, and make sure you always keep eyes in the back of your head. I’m Blackpool Combat Club ’til the day I die. Fellas, it’s been emotional.” Lord William Regal’s message ends, and Schiavone says that was two weeks ago, before what MJF did. He knows they’re all a bit speechless, but does anyone have a comment?

Moxley takes the mic to say, “All I know is one thing for sure. The three men in this ring live and breathe for the sport of professional wrestling! You can call us whatever you want, but December 10th, ROH Final Battle, this war with the Jericho Appreciation Society is OVER! These men make a statement. This Friday night on Rampage, I make a statement! I’m gonna challenge any wrestler in the world to come right here in this ring and find out just where you stand on the food chain. This Friday on Rampage, I make a statement! At Final Battle, they make a statement! Pro-wrestling is about to make a serious statement!”

The fans fire up hearing that from Moxley, but who will step up to his Open Challenge? And can Claudio and Yuta both take back the ROH titles to restore that honor to those championships?

 

The House of Black speak.

Malakai says, “This company has allowed itself to be corrupted. Corrupted by people that point fingers at others while still holding the shovel in their hands that they used to dig the graves for others. And now, it is sick and it is dying. And perhaps it is time for myself and the House to… put down this corruption. Ms. Hart, what is the crime?” Julia steps out from the shadows to say, “The crime is treason.” Malakai asks “Mr. Matthews, what is the verdict?” Buddy walks out from the shadows to say, “Verdict: War.” “And Mr. King, what is the sentence?” Brody walks out to say, “It as if you throw a side of beef to a pack of wild dogs. We will tear the meat from the bone. The sentence is extermination.”

Malakai says it has been decided. “To anyone that has an issue with what we have done over the past two weeks, or anything that’s been said here, well next week Wednesday, come one, come all.” The House of Black drifts into the shadows, who will be the first to be torn apart?

 

AEW returns with Jamie Hayter’s sit-down interview.

Tony Schiavone sits with the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion, and he notes that last week, she asked the question, “Why not a sit-down interview with me?” Well, here we are, and the floor is hers. Hayter says Saraya got a sit-down, cool. Toni Storm got one, alright. But not with Hayter? That baffles her. So no, Schiavone, you ask her something. What does he wanna know? Well, Schiavone notes the AEW Women’s Division has been blossoming. Great competitors are showing up, and this week on Rampage, we will see Hikaru Shida VS The Bunny for Shida’s Regina de Wave Championship. What are Hayter’s thoughts on the division?

Hayter says it is getting “interesting.” But unfortunately for everyone else, Hayter is on top now. And everyone is trying to grind their way to the top to get her title. She will do her duty as champion to be both reigning and defending. Hayter will have a very, very close look at that Regina de Wave title match on Rampage. “Thing is, it doesn’t really hold a candle to the AEW Women’s World Championship, does it?” Schiavone says nothing does, and Hayter agrees. This is AEW. But Hayter will “give one of those girls the opportunity of a lifetime. Whoever wins that match, they get to wrestle me for the AEW Women’s World Championship, if they dare.”

Schiavone says Hayter’s going to be a fighting champion and she says that’s right. She is a fighting champion, “and a bloody good one at that.” Who will be the Regina de Wave Champion after Rampage? And will they accept Hayter’s challenge to them?

 

Six Woman Tag: Jade Cargill & The Baddies VS Madison Rayne, Skye Blue & Kiera Hogan!

The UN-DE-FEA-TED AEW TBS Champion got her belt back but got rid of the weak link, as she puts it. Red Velvet is back, Leila Grey is still around, but Kiera Hogan got kicked to the curb! Will Kiera get revenge on #ThatBitch with help from the Coach & Student? Or will Jade be undefeated even in trios action?
