Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (11/19/21)

Shotzi takes a shot at The Boss!



Coverage SmackDown 2021

One last SmackDown before Survivor Series!

Before being teammates for SmackDown at Survivor Series, Sasha Banks and Shotzi Blackheart look to settle the score and #TCB, Take Care o’ Business!


  • Team SmackDown Survivor Series Qualifier: Sheamus VS Cesaro VS Jinder Mahal VS Ricochet; Sheamus wins and joins Team SmackDown.
  • Aliyah & Naomi VS Shayna Baszler & Natalya; Shayna & Natalya win.
  • Jeff Hardy VS “Mad Cap” Moss w/ “Happy” Corbin; Hardy wins.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Rick Boogs VS Angel Garza w/ Humberto Carrillo; Nakamura wins.
  • Sasha Banks VS Shotzi Blackheart; Sasha wins.


SmackDown opens with The Usos already in the ring.

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions have the crown, throne and scepter on display. Jimmy says the Tribal Chief will be out here soon, and do they have a surprise for him! But before that, they gotta get to this. Big E, the Bloodline showed up on Raw and sent a message loud and clear. They about to do the same thing to RKBRO at Survivor Series! Yeah, that’s right! The Usos hear voices in their heads, and they’re saying, “We the ones.” Then we’ll see who runs the WWE! Tonight, you’ll see who is the one true king! The Head of the Table! The Tribal Chief! Your Tribal KING! Their cousin, the Universal Champion, ROMAN! REEEEIGNS!

Roman makes his way out, Paul Heyman carrying the belt for him. Heyman hands the belt over so Roman can raise it up for the pyro. Then they continue to the ring, Heyman holding the title up as a banner. The Bloodline all hold up the finger to the sky, then Roman gets the belt again for the second round of pyro. Heyman fetches a mic for Roman and Roman sees the throne, scepter and crown. Roman asks Heyman what this is about but Heyman says he’s so overwhelmed. This has been in the works all week for him. “There is no one, no one, in the history of WWE that deserves to be crowned the king as much as the Head of the Table, the Tribal Chief, the Tribal King, Roman Reigns.”

Heyman knows in his heart that everyone here will agree that the distinction of king surely doesn’t belong to Xavier Woods. And it sure as hell will never belong to BRRROCK. LESNARRR. And it will never belong to someone like Big E, who will be smashed this Sunday by the Tribal King, Roman Reigns. “Because at Survivor Series, what chance-” Roman cuts Heyman off to ask for the mic, which Heyman hands over. “Whose idea was this?” Uh… Heyman points to the Usos, and the Usos point at each other. Roman says this must be a joke. They don’t really think that he cares about this stuff, do they? They don’t think he needs this, do they?

No no no. He puts in the hard work, earns the respect, “Hartford! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Fans are divided, but Roman says the only reason he took the crown last week is because he can. But here comes Xavier Woods! The rightful King of the Ring doesn’t have his cape, because he doesn’t have his crown, but he does have a mic. “Roman. All of those things that you have in the ring right now, those material things, those belong to me.” But those things do not make a king. What makes a king is knowing that you are to do good for the WWE Universe. And if you were a king, then based on what Roman did last week, he’d come out here and look Woods in the eyes as a man so they can settle this.

But that’s not Roman’s MO, is it? Then let’s sweeten the pot. Woods challenges Roman to be out here without his goons, “The Wet Bandits,” Roman looks Woods face to face and Woods shows him what a real king is made of. Roman says Woods is telling Roman that he doesn’t care about this stuff? It doesn’t mean anything? Then Jey takes the cape and blows his nose in it before throwing it down form Roman to wipe his shoes on. It doesn’t matter? No. Then Jey takes the scepter and BREAKS it! Is Woods sure this stuff doesn’t matter? Jey and Jimmy SMASH the throne! And then stomp it, then throw it out of the ring! Roman is laughing and says Woods looks pretty upset.

Last but not least, the crown! Jimmy SMASHES the pedestal, Jey gets ready to smash the crown, but Roman has Jey hand it over first. Roman will ask one more time: Is Woods sure that the crown doesn’t mean anything? Woods has a tear in his eye, Roman puts the crown down on the mat, and he raises a foot. Woods rushes in! Woods gets mugged 2v1! Roman laughs as the Usos rain down on Woods in a corner. Then they drag Woods over and make him watch. Roman says he is the ONLY king around here. He doesn’t need props. “I’m the one.” He STOMPS the crown, and tears it up, then smacks Woods off one of the pieces!

Fans boo but Roman smiles as the Bloodline stands tall. Will Roman still take Woods up on his 1v1 challenge for later tonight? Or will the fallen King of the Ring be without his retribution?


Backstage interview with Xavier Woods backstage.

Obviously a very difficult situation, but where does he go from here? Where does he go?! He goes to the ring later tonight to take on Roman. The “Roman Empire” wasn’t built in a day, but it will fall tonight! The king is not defeated just yet, but will Roman even care to face him again?


Team SmackDown Survivor Series Qualifier: Sheamus VS Cesaro VS Jinder Mahal VS Ricochet!

The Fella is back for a big fight! But will he be the one joining Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, Xavier Woods & “Happy Corbin” in the battle for brand supremacy? Or will another rise up to take Sami Zayn’s spot?

SmackDown returns and the One and Only Ricochet makes his entrance. The Modern Day Maharaja is already in the ring, as is the Swiss Cyborg. The bell rings, Ricochet rushes Sheamus but is put in a corner while Mahal and Cesaro brawl. Mahal puts Cesaro in the opposite corner, he and Sheamus fire off hands and stomps. Cesaro kicks and EuroUppers. Sheamus turns around to see his old buddy in The Bar. Mahal storms up on Cesaro but Cesaro DECKS him! Sheamus CLOBBERS Cesaro, then gives a thumbs down. Ricochet fires off on Sheamus but Sheamus throws body shots. Sheamus scoops, Ricochet sunset flips, TWO!

Ricochet gets up but Mahal BOOTS him down! Cesaro EuroUppers Sheamus in a corner! Mahal stomps away on Ricochet then CLUBS away on Cesaro. Mahal and Sheamus mug Cesaro. Ricochet goes after Mahal and Sheamus but gets mugged, too. Shanky cheers Mahal on while Sheamus throws Cesaro out. Mahal throws Ricochet out to the apron and drags him up to set him up for Sheamus’ Beats of the Bodhrain! But Mahal rolls Sheamus up! TWO, and Mahal grins while wanting Sheamus to keep cool. But the two of them brawl with big hands, Sheamus knees low and EuroUppers again. Mahal staggers, Sheamus whips, Mahal kicks Sheamus back.

Mahal whips, Sheamus reverses and sends Mahal to the apron. Sheamus KNEES Mahal in the ropes, turns him around and gives Mahal Beats of the Bodhrain! Sheamus gets all 10, then reverse HOTSHOTS Mahal away! But Cesaro returns to trip Sheamus! Sheamus knows what’s coming and he kicks Cesaro away! Ricochet springboards to missile dropkick! Then he dodges Cesaro to tilt-o-whirl and headscissor! Cesaro ends up outside with everyone else, Ricochet kips up! Fans fire up, Ricochet builds speed, and he FLIES! Direct hit onto all three opponents and fans are fired up as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Cesaro has Ricochet stuck on the ropes while Mahal fights Sheamus off. Sheamus and Ricochet each keep trying to climb up, but Cesaro turns things around on Ricochet. Ricochet resists, Mahal has knocked Sheamus down but Sheamus trips Mahal up! Sheamus and Cesaro each have Mahal and Ricochet, SUPERPLEX from the Fella! SUPER STEINER from Ricochet! All four men are down and fans fire up! Ricochet is up first and fans rally behind him. Sheamus stands, blocks Ricochet’s boot and clotheslines him in the corner! Sheamus scoops Ricochet but Ricochet turns it to a TORNADO DDT!

STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, Mahal breaks it! Mahal fireman’s carries to a GUTBUSTER DROP! Cesaro SPINEBUSTERS Mahal, and fans go nuts! SWISS WING! They go around and around and get past 10, then 20! 25 rotations, and Cesaro gets the SHARPSHOOTER! Mahal endures, Shanky calls to him, and they get the ropebreak, but there’s no disqualifications! Ricochet WRECKS Shanky, then KICKS Cesaro! Cesaro lets go of Mahal to block a kick, but Ricochet ENZUGIRIS! Mahal clutches Ricochet but Ricochet sips out to RECOIL! Mahal is down, Ricochet goes up and fans are thunderous! Ricochet 630!! BROGUE from Sheamus!! Cover on Mahal, but Cesaro breaks it!

Sheamus staggers up, Cesaro runs in to EuroUpper in the corner, then fire off boxing shots. Cesaro whips corner to corner, but Sheamus BOOTS him down! Sheamus skins the cat to the top rope, leaps, but into a EUROUPPER! Cesaro reels Sheamus in, but here comes RIDGE HOLLAND! Sheamus’ number one fan is here, and Sheamus back drops Cesaro in the distraction! Sheamus aims, and Cesaro ducks the brogue! Roll up, TWO!! Holland is up, he swings but misses and then has to scramble away! BROGUE from Sheamus!! Cover, Sheamus wins!

Winner: Sheamus, by pinfall (joins Team SmackDown at Survivor Series)

Sheamus celebrates with Northern Grit, seeing how his biggest fan helped him get this big win! Will


Backstage with Jeff Hardy.

Kayla asks the Charismatic Enigma about entering his sixth Survivor Series 5v5 match. Over the years, he’s teamed with some incredible superstars. Cerebral Assassins, Big Red Machines, legendary luchadores, and serious Showstoppers. But no one is like Drew McIntyre. That guy is in a league of his own. And it doesn’t matter what Roman says, Woods is the real king because Woods is the real deal. Woods will find a way to bring the Tribal Chief some tribal grief. And Sheamus is one rugged son of a bitch, and if he works as hard as the others, he’ll be a great contribution to the team.

But then you’ve got “Happy” Corbin, who lives in his own world. He only thinks about himself, and you never know what might happen.  But Corbin and “Mad Cap” Moss are here to cheer “Jeffrey” up. Moss asks, “How does Jeff Hardy decide which face paint to use? He asks himself, ‘What goes well with a redneck.” So this is what we’re doing? Adam Pearce says he wants the team to win, but there’s no place for this attitude. Corbin is part of the team, so Pearce advises him to act like it. And Moss, everything’s a joke to you? Well let’s see if you’re still laughing after you’ve faced Hardy. Hardy laughs right at Moss, and then leaves. Will Moss learn he’s the butt of the joke tonight?


Backstage interview with Sheamus & Ridge Holland.

Megan congratulations Sheamus on joining Team SmackDown, but- He asks if she saw that! This fella here believes in Sheamus! You’ve heard what Holland has been saying! About how Sheamus is an inspiration! How he’s the greatest! How watching Sheamus made Holland want to be a WWE superstar! Hearing that almost brings a tear to his eye. NOT! Holland says that if it weren’t for Sheamus, Holland would be broke and fighting bums on the street. If anyone on the roster has a problem with what happened tonight, go find them in the pub. A man after Sheamus’ own heart! To the bar they go!


SmackDown looks closer at Becky Lynch VS Charlotte Flair.

They were “once upon a time,” best friends. Just earlier this year, Charlotte said that she was dominating the division while Becky was absent. THIRTEEN-TIME Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion, but then Becky came back at SummerSlam! Big Time Becks shocked us all, but then the WWE Draft added fuel to the fire with their title swap. There is unfinished business here to say the least. Charlotte questioned Becky’s genuineness while Becky exposed Charlotte’s ego. It isn’t brand supremacy, it isn’t Champion VS Champion, it’s about finally seeing who is THE ALPHA of this generation!


Aliyah & Naomi VS Shayna Baszler & Natalya!

It seems the newest star of the show and The Glow have something in common now: Sonya Deville has abused her authority against them. But will they be able to stand against The Queen of Spades & The Queen of Harts together? Or will they be made to #TapNapOrSnap?

SmackDown returns as Shayna Baszler makes her entrance. The teams sort out, Aliyah starts against Natty. They tie up, Natty kicks low then throws hands. Aliyah hits an arm-drag, dropkicks Natty down, then brings her up to whip to a corner. Aliyah runs in but is put on the apron, but she ROCKS Natty with a forearm. Aliyah goes up, flips and RANAS Natty away! Shayna tags in, Naomi gets in, she and Aliyah hit DOUBLE THESZ PRESSES! They fire fast hands, Natty bails out but Shayna gut wrenches Naomi to a KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! Naomi backs Shayna down, Natty tags in but Naomi DECKS her! Naomi hits Shayna with a REAR VIEW!

Natty gets in, Naomi fires hands, Shayna throws Naomi down! Natty covers, fast count?! Natty & Shayna win!!

Winners: Shayna Baszler & Natalya, by pinfall

Wait, this isn’t right! Well this can only be because of one woman and she might as well change her name to Cruella! Will Deville continue to drag Naomi down over her persona bias?


Sami Zayn complains to Sonya Deville.

He is back to talking about his conspiracy theory given he was taken off Team SmackDown. For one, his documentary is still unreleased and it’s been seven MONTHS! Sonya understands he’s upset about all these things, but he just needs to relax. That was Adam Pearce, not her. And she has an idea. This Sunday is the 25th Anniversary of The Rock’s Debut. So in honor of that, she’ll make a 25 Man Battle Royal, in which Sami can win, and then he can have his name associated with The Rock, and the millions (and millions) of his fans. But then the ref walks over and asks if she did a good job.

Sonya pretends to have no idea who this is, and accuses her of being “one of those little NXT refs” trying to make it big. B-But she said- She said nothing, and she does not associate with crooked refs! Get out of here! Not suspicious at all…


Jeff Hardy VS “Mad Cap” Moss w/ “Happy” Corbin!

No more laughing out loud, it’s time to let actions speak for themselves! Will the Charismatic Enigma use Happy Corbin’s hyena sidekick as a tune-up for taking on Team Raw?

SmackDown returns and Corbin makes his entrance to accompany Moss to the ring. Hardy gets a mic to say, “The odds are clearly not in my favor here tonight. If you’ve got Happy Corbin in your corner, I might as well have somebody in mine.” It’s DREW MCINTYRE! The Scottish Warrior, and Angela the claymore, make for some serious reinforcements! Who’s laughing now, Moss?

The bell rings, fans rally behind Hardy but Moss SPINEBUSTERS Hardy! Moss drags Hardy up, half nelsons and knees away on Hardy! hardy gets to a corner but Moss brings him around. “What did the fist say to the face?” BAM! Moss drags Hardy up but Hardy JAWBREAKERS back! Moss staggers into an ATOMIC DROP, then a trip to the leg splitting leg drop! And the basement dropkick! Moss gets up, Hardy kicks to the TWIST OF FATE! Off comes the shirt and Hardy goes up top! But Corbin distracts! McIntyre drags Corbin down to throw him over the announce desk! But Moss still trips Hardy up and drags him out for a suplex! Hardy makes it a cradle, Hardy wins!

Winner: Jeff Hardy, by pinfall

Corbin gets in but gets a CLAYMORE kick from McIntyre! Moss tries but he gets a GLASGOW KISS HEADBUTT! Hardy goes up top again, fans fire up for the SWANTON BOMB! McIntyre indeed had Hardy’s back, but will they and Corbin be able to put this all aside when they have to fight Team Raw?


Heyman walks and talks on his phone.

“The Tribal Chief does not like surprises.” But then Kayla scares Heyman as she springs in outta nowhere. Stop doing that! But did they hear the challenge Woods made earlier? Yes he heard the challenge made~! But he’s sick of this false narrative that Roman needs people around him. Roman doesn’t need the Usos, he loves the Usos. He doesn’t need the special Counsel, but he loves Heyman. The same way Kayla does. But yes, 48 hours before Survivor series, where Roman will smash Big E, Woods wants to challenge Roman Reigns and call his bluff. There are no bluffs on the Island of Relevancy. So as far as Roman goes, the challenge is hereby accepted. Will Woods make Roman regret that and everything else he’s done?


Rick Boogs shreds!

He gets Hartford to call and respond, then says he’s here to rock with the Intercontinental Champion, Shinsuke NakamurAAAAAA~! The King of Strong Style makes his entrance, but will he and Boogs be rockin’ after another run in with Angel y Humberto?

Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Rick Boogs VS Angel Garza w/ Humberto Carrillo!

SmackDown returns and Los Lotharios make their entrance. Garza already takes off the pants to get serious against Nakamura! The bell rings and Garza throws the pants at Nakamura to then SHOTGUN dropkick! Snapmare and a basement dropkick! Garza gets Nakamura up, CHOPS him against the ropes, but Nakamura blocks the whip. Garza CHOPS, whips but Nakamura knees back! Garza ducks one kick but not the LEFT! Nakamura KICKS Garza around, then stomps him in the corner. The ref counts, Nakamura backs off but snapmares Garza to then go up top. FLYING- DROPKICK from Garza!

Garza sees Nakamura go to the apron, runs in but Nakamura jumps over the baseball slide! FLYING KNEE! Nakamura almost hits the announce desk! Nakamura puts Garza in the ring, but Carrillo anchors Nakamura’s foot! Just like last week! But Boogs pries Carrillo off with a gut wrench and just shaking him around before he TOSSES him! Garza runs in but only gets buckles! Schoolboy to the KINSHASA!! Cover, Nakamura wins!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall

But then Carrillo hits Nakamura as he runs into the ring! Los Lotharios regroup and run away, but this looks far from over between them, Nakamura and Boogs!


Shotzi and Sasha meet backstage.

Sonya keeps them civil here, because they’re going to be teammates on Sunday. Sonya is certain- Shotzi interrupts to say what she’s certain of: “Sasha Banks, you are a petty, vindictive little brat. When I get screwed over, I don’t forget. Ever. What’s that saying? Payback’s a-” Sasha stops Shotzi there. If she had a nickel for every time a rookie tried to make a name off of her, Sasha would be rich. Oh wait, she IS rich! She’s the Boss, the Standard, and the CAPTAIN of this team. Nd Shotzi, no one would know who you are without Sasha. So yeah, payback is a BITCH, and so is she!

Sonya shouts them down and says they can take this frustration out in the ring. But when the match is over, she expects them to shake hands. Shotzi and Sasha both sneer at that, but the Boss’ music hits first. Will it still be #BossTime? Or will Shotzi #TCH?

Sasha Banks VS Shotzi Blackheart!

SmackDown returns and Shotzi makes her entrance. The bell rings, the two tie up and Shotzi powers Sasha to a corner. The ref counts, Shotzi lets off and she stars Sasha down, Sasha dodges Shotzi to get the headlock and thrashes her around. Shotzi powers out to then pull hair and throw Sasha down! Shotzi shouts at Sasha but Sasha reaches up to headscissor! Sasha dodges to CHOP Shotzi, then she knuckle locks nd goes up, up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Shotzi gets up as Sasha swaggers, and then Shotzi shoves Sasha around. Sasha shoves back, Shotzi pulls hair. Sasha pulls hair, the ref counts on them both but they both club the other.

Sasha blocks a kick, Shotzi blocks the knee! QUESTION MARK KICK! Shotzi wants the chicken wings but Sasha fights out to spin Shotzi around, snap suplex! Una Amiga! Another snap suplex, Dos Amigas! She wants the third, and gets THREE AMIGAS! Fans chant for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” and Sasha goes up top. FROG SPLASH but she has to bail out as Shotzi moves! Shotzi puts Sasha on the apron, ROCKS her, then kicks, but Sasha ducks to KNEE back! Sasha steps in, Shotzi KICKS her! Shotzi runs but Sasha dodges! Shotzi lands on her feet, avoids the meteora, then kicks to RAM Sasha into steel steps!

The ring count is climbing, Shotzi puts Sasha’s hand in the steps to KICK them! And again! And again! The count is climbing! Shotzi gets in at 8, Sasha is still down and Shotzi howls before going right back out. Shotzi puts Sasha in the ring, covers, TWO! Shotzi snarls, drags Sasha back up, CLUBS her, but Sasha gets around to waistlock! O’Conner Roll, TWO, and Sasha ends up outside again. Shotzi goes back out, puts Sasha on the apron but Sasha Tiger Feints to kick Shotzi! METEORA off the apron! The Boss is back on top as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Sasha blocks a kick t KNEE Shotzi down! Sasha then gets Shotzi up, but Shotzi fights the backstabber by bending Sasha’s fingers! ELBOW BREAKER to the bad arm! Then a fireman’s carry, SWINGING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Shotzi is seething, she drags Sasha up and brings her in, but no Sliced Bread as Sasha shoves her away! Roll up, TWO! Sasha goes up to get DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Sasha goes side to side to BOOT WASH! Sasha fires up as she shoves Shotzi away and fans fire up with her. Sasha climbs, jumps, METEORA! Cover, TWO!! Shotzi survives and Sasha can’t believe it!

Sasha waits on Shotzi to rise, then reels her in, but Shotzi denies the backstabber to KICK the bad arm! Cravat to the SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Sasha narrowly escapes and Shotzi can’t believe it! “YOU’RE GARBAGE! Sasha, you are nothing but TRASH!” Shotzi drags Sasha up, but Sasha JAWBREAKERS, to then bring Shotzi around and shoulder into her. But Shotzi HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Shotzi brings Sasha along to POST her! Shotzi goes out and drags Sasha up to put her in the ring. Shotzi climbs, aims, BALLPIT SENTON!! But Sasha bails out! Shotzi is furious, but she goes out to drag Sasha back up.

Shotzi puts Sasha in, drags her up, fireman’s carry, but Sasha rolls Shotzi up into the CROSSFACE! And uses her legs in it! Shotzi taps, Sasha wins!

Winner: Sasha Banks, by submission

The Boss finds a way to make up for a bad arm, but Sonya is waiting on the stage for the sportsmanship. Sasha stands Shotzi up and offers a handshake. Shotzi sees Sonya watching, so Shotzi shakes hands. But then Sasha brings Shotzi in for a BACKSTABBER! Sonya isn’t happy, but she can’t exactly replace Sasha this late in the game. Sasha says she’ll see everyone on Sunday!


Roman is in his private room.

“Wiseman.” “Yes, my Tribal Chief?” “Is it time?” “It is time, my Tribal Chief.” Roman stands, and he tells the Usos he will handle this by himself. The confrontation of chief and king happens, after the break!


SmackDown presents Xia Li, Volume One.

“When we are young, our parents feel like superheroes. Larger than lift itself. My dad felt like a giant, looming over my family with a protective shield. Then… Just like that… Our protector was gone. Vulnerability is pungent, and it can be sniffed out. Our landlord was on us like a bloodhound. The walls trembled. When he burst into our home and dragged our belongings into the street, as my grieving mother begged for him to stop, someone had to wield my father’s protective shield. And that person was me. I hate vultures. They flock to the vulnerable like moths to a flame. No vultures will ever get to my family again.” She is her father’s daughter. She is The Protector!


Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

The Lightning From Down Under was added to the SmackDown Team for Survivor Series. She was Team NXT a few years ago, but she is so excited to represent the blue brand. She’s had a full week, and she confronted the SmackDown Women’s Champion last week. What motivated Toni to challenge Charlotte? Charlotte is consumed by her match with Becky Lynch. Who wouldn’t want to see that? But when you become obsessed, you become vulnerable. And when Charlotte loses this Sunday, her ego won’t handle that. She’ll come at Toni guns blazing because Toni had the gumption to say, “So you’re Charlotte Flair. Big freakin’ deal!”

We know Charlotte doesn’t play well with others, but when she loses to Becky, and she will, she’ll want to take it all out on Toni. All Toni wants is a championship match. But speaking of, Charlotte walks in! “After I prove my superiority over Becky this Sunday and beat the living crap out of her, you’re next on the list.” It won’t be for the title, but then Charlotte will do to Toni what she does to Becky on Sunday. Charlotte tosses her hair and takes her leave, but Toni says that went just as she expected. But will it all go as Toni said in time?


Xavier Woods goes to the ring!

The King of the Ring is ready to bring down the Roman Empire! But will King Xavier, first of his name, only end up last of his name at Roman’s own hands?

SmackDown returns and Woods has the mic. “Roman, Roman, Roman. It is I, your king, King Woods. And I’m here in Hartford, Connecticut. And I’m here in this ring tonight to find out if you are a man. Because last week, you and I had a match, Roman, and I hit that Limit Break elbow and I hit it clean.” Then the Usos showed up and threw the whole match out. But that means Roman Reigns, the so-called Tribal Chief, THE WWE Universal Champion cannot beat Xavier Woods. If that makes Roman feel any kind of way, then he should bring his ass to the ring and prove Woods wrong. Woods waits, and here comes Roman!

Once again, Roman walks out on stage, Heyman carrying the belt for him. But then Heyman cues the Usos! Roman wasn’t going to honor the deal at all! But wait, where are the Usos? Jimmy gets thrown out on stage! And then Jey! Woods shrugs, and fans have an idea! BIG E IS HERE! Big E walks right down the ramp and throws hands with Roman! Fans are thunderous as Big E RAMS Roman into steel steps! And then gets him up to RAM him into barriers! Roman sputters but Big E puts Roman in for Woods! Woods stomps away on Big E, and he chest bumps with Big E! They stomp away on Roman, but the Usos come back!

Big E scoops Jey, Woods SUPERKICKS Jimmy! BIG ENDING for Jey! Woods gets Jimmy up to feed to Big E for another BIG ENDING! The Usos bail out but where’s Roman? Woods builds speed and he FLIES to take out the Usos again! Roman runs in to SUPERMAN PUNCH Big E! The Tribal Chief was picking his spot! Roman aims from a corner, “OOAH~!” But he runs into a scoop! But he slips away before the ending! Roman retreats, lucky to get away from the New Day! Will the WWE World Champion finally humble the WWE Universal Champion at Survivor Series?

My Thoughts:

A good go-home from SmackDown, but the best stuff continues to be with Roman. He gave Woods a lot of grief ruining the King of the Ring gear, which is great Heel heat on Roman, but it seems like WWE is (foolishly) ending Woods’ KOTR character already. That’s dumb considering they had Corbin be Wolf King for way too long, but this is Vince, the man who allowed his people to release numerous wrestlers who are immensely talented. Maybe Woods can bring out a new crown and scepter that is even more New Day in its presentation, but I am really glad they had Big E show up to fight with Roman. Big E standing tall on Raw and right here surely means he loses to Roman, but what else is new for opponents of the Head of the Table?

I like that they gave us a big Fatal 4 to determine Sami’s replacement rather than just naming one like they have for, oh, I dunno, all the other replacements in this half-assed build. I figured Holland would get involved to help Sheamus, though. But couldn’t they have done a better job of it? Hell, Shanky was there, he couldn’t do the same for Jinder? But I’m thinking this was mostly to establish that Sheamus & Holland will be a tag team after Survivor Series, not that they’ll get a tag title match while Usos are still champions and Heels. Maybe Cesaro teams with Mansoor again so they can have a feud with Sheamus & Holland.

I do like that we got Aliyah & Naomi VS Shayna & Natty at all, because those were the exact teams I was hoping we’d get out of the WWE Draft and all the other stuff. The WWE Women’s Tag Division needs the Queen of Harts & Queen of Spades to stick together. And while I’d normally complain about a short woman’s match these days, this one worked in story because Sonya is becoming a tyrant. Still waiting on when The Bloodline starts to almost feel Face by countering Sonya’s abuse of power with a bit of their own influence, but I’m probably better off hoping WWE gets brains and hires back some of the people they let go.

I like that McIntyre helped Hardy against Corbin & Moss, but I’m surprised the Viking Raiders weren’t involved in this because of their beef with Corbin & Moss. Makes me think this was a one-off for the Survivor Series go-home, and we’ll be back to the hyenas and the Vikings after. Sami had a good moment with Sonya, at least he didn’t forget the conspiracy theory documentary during all the mess. But what else does he have when his feud (and Jinder’s feud) with Hit Row is dead because Team Vince killed it? Sami, Jinder & Shanky VS Hit Row should’ve been the Six Man Tag blow-off we were heading to with those guys.

I know Xia Li was going to get a repackage going from Tian Sha on NXT to here on SmackDown, but Marvel Comics character was not what I expected. Toni has a good promo, and Charlotte has a good cameo in that promo, I hope Toni gets a great showing against Charlotte. Shotzi got a great showing against Sasha, but I should’ve figured Sasha would win. Sasha may be Face as according to WWE, but the way their promos went, you could’ve easily said Shotzi was Face and Sasha was Heel and it’d be the exact same. Sasha’s a better Heel anyway, why not build a new star by letting Shotzi be the Face? Isn’t WWE supposedly wanting to get edgy again? Shotzi’s pretty much the one to get behind in that. SHE HAD A TANK, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

My Score: 8.1/10

Mitchell’s WWE Raw Results & Report! (1/17/22)

Is Becky Lynch sweatin’ Doudrop?



WWE Raw 2022

The Man prepares for the Royal Rumble!

“Doudrop” Piper Niven is coming for the Raw Women’s Championship, and she won’t be Manhandled so easily! How will Becky Lynch counter Piper’s power?


  • Bianca Belair & Liv Morgan VS “Doudrop” Piper Niven & Becky Lynch; Piper & Becky win.
  • Damian Priest VS Kevin Owens; Kevin wins.
  • Finn Balor VS Austin Theory; Theory wins.
  • Nikki A.S.H. VS Rhea Ripley; No Contest.
  • Reggie w/ Dana Brooke VS Omos; Omos wins.
  • 8 Man Tag: The Street Profits & The Mysterios VS Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez & The Dirty Dawgs; The Street Profits & Mysterios win.
  • Bobby Lashley w/ MVP VS Seth Rollins; Lashley wins, by disqualification.


Becky Lynch heads to the ring!

Tulsa, Oklahoma, The Man has come ’round! Fans chant her name as she gets the mic, and she welcomes them to the Big Time! “Now we are less than two weeks away from the Royal Rumble, and the Raw Women’s Division has never been hotter. And whether you like to admit it or not, there’s only one person responsible for that, and that’s me.” Becky says it is so hot that there are stars from generations past, like Lita, Mickie James and the Bella Twins, all hoping that they can win the Rumble and challenge the #VanGOAT at WrestleMania. Face it, they need Becky because she makes stars.

Look no further than Doudrop. Becky has kindly given her the biggest opportunity of her life, a taste of the Big Time at one of the biggest events of the year. The people didn’t get her that! Piper Niven didn’t get it for herself. Becky did that! That is what Becky does! She makes people better, than she beats ’em! But Becky will admit that she admires Piper’s tenacity. She came from the rolling hills of Scotland and made a name for herself. Well no, someone else had to make up a name for her. So Becky will shoot it straight for “Doudou.” A doudrop will never be champion so long as The Man is still here.

But speaking of, here she comes! Piper storms right up to the ring, gets herself a mic and says she’s gonna tell Becky something. “You didn’t get me anything. I got myself this title match at Royal Rumble. But if it was really your plan to face me instead of Bianca, than it’s the biggest mistake you’ve ever made. Just make sure you stay well out of my way tonight.” Becky says she did get Piper that win last week, and if Piper just follows her lead, they’ll get a win here tonight. But here comes Bianca Belair! “Oh, Becky. You really out here spittin’ all this nonsense about being the GOAT, the greatEST of all time, but let me remind y’all that you can’t spell greatest without E S T.”

Bianca joins Piper and Becky in the ring as fans chant for “EST! EST!” Bianca reminds us SHE is the EST of WWE. And Doudrop, uh, okay. The only reason Piper is facing Becky is because Ms. Big Time was so scared of Bianca, she interfered in last week’s match. But girl, uh-uh. That’s just buyin’ time. Because Bianca is officially entering the Royal Rumble match! And it’s gonna be every woman for themselves, so if Bianca’s gotta throw out every 29 other women like she did last year, she’ll do it. Then she’ll go main event WrestleMania… again. And Bianca can go after whichever champion she wants, which could be Becky or Piper.

But now, Bianca’s tag partner, Liv Morgan, arrives! “Well, well, well, Bianca. We may be tag teaming tonight, but I am also officially entering myself in the Royal Rumble match. And that’s not all, that’s not all. Because in two weeks, I’m also the one winning it.” But that means Bianca will be one of the 29 she outlasts on the way to WrestleMania. But since we’re on the same page- Piper pretends to snore and then says this is boring. Everyone, shut up and ref, get in here! Piper wants to fight, but it’s Becky who riles up Liv and Bianca, and then uses Piper as a shield! Piper welcomes someone to bring it, but this starts after the break.


Chad Gable prepares a speech.

“Greetings and salutations…” Otis walks over, the valedictorian of The Alpha Academy. Will this graduation ceremony go off without a hitch?


Bianca Belair & Liv Morgan VS “Doudrop” Piper Niven & Becky Lynch!

Raw returns and the bell rings, and Bianca dropkicks Piper! Piper stays up but Bianca whips. Piper blocks, reverses, but Bianca goes up tot ell Piper to kiss this. Then Bianca leaps over Piper, spins her around and reels her in, but Piper blocks the suplex. Piper suplexes, Bianca slips out and then dodges in the corner! Piper hits buckles, Bianca ROCKS Piper with a forearm, then runs in to ram Piper. Piper rebounds to run Bianca over! Piper runs, Becky tags in! Piper is annoyed with Becky but Becky says she’s got this. They argue, Becky turns around into a dropkick! Bianca kips up, tags Liv, Liv dodges Becky to DECK Piper and SHOTGUN Becky!

Becky is in a corner, Liv back body blocks, then SHINING WIZARDS! Liv whips, Becky reverses but Liv stops to back elbow. Liv goes up to leap and missile dropkick Becky down! Liv then brings Becky around, springboard CODE BREAKER! Cover, Piper breaks it! Bianca gets in to ROCK Piper, but she can’t lift Piper for the torture rack. Piper shoves Bianca into a corner and SPLASHES! Piper runs at Liv but Liv sends her out! Becky rolls Liv up, has feet on the ropes, TWO! Liv kicks low, KICKS again, then runs in, but Becky dodges! Liv elbows Becky again, but runs into a MANHANDLE SLAM! Cover, Piper breaks it?! But that was her own teammate!

Piper drags Becky out of the way, wants to cover, but she’s not legal! So Piper hurries back to her corner, tags herself in, and then runs to SPLASH Liv! Cover, Piper and Becky win!

Winners: “Doudrop” Piper Niven & Becky Lynch, by pinfall

Then Piper celebrates by giving Becky a VADER SEATED SENTON! Piper laughs as she looms over Becky, but will she have the last laugh at the Rumble?


Reggie and Dana Brooke talk with someone.

Reggie knows they’ve faced giants in their career, so can they give Reggie any advice when facing Omos tonight? The person he’s talking to is Edge! Edge thinks, and he tells Reggie that he can do things Edge can’t even comprehend. So he has a chance? Hell no! Beth Phoenix scolds Edge with a smack, and Edge says he still wishes Reggie luck. And Beth talks with Dana real quick. She’s seen Dana bust her butt for years here, so it’s so great Dana has a title. Dana thanks Beth for that, and hurries away to keep up with Reggie. Edge and Beth then see Damian Priest. They shake hands and hug and Priest is happy to see the Grit Couple.

Edge says he likes what he sees with Priest’s other side. Yeah, Priest’s other side is a bit edgy, but being serious here, Priest wants some ideas on the Rumble match. Edge has experience, having won two, one of which he won from starting first. There’s no better man to ask for pointers than Edge. Well cardio is one thing, but the main thing is to keep doing you. Priest’s style is working. Someone brings over a note for Beth, and it’s from Maryse. She wants to meet Beth 1v1, woman to woman. Edge says that’s suspicious. Beth is of course going to go but Edge is going to go with her. Beth agrees, and Edge says he and Priest can talk more later. What will the It Couple have planned for the Grit Couple?

Kevin Owens then walks over to ask Priest something. Kevin is looking forward to their match tonight. Really? Yeah, no lie! He’s looking- Oh, right, because Kevin’s so honest. Yes, especially having a good, clean match. Good competition, show off some technical prowess. But also that side, that nutso, vicious side. That side shouldn’t come out. Kevin is just hoping for them having a good, clean match. Kevin also has an announcement to make, so see you then. Good talk. Kevin and his tie hurries off, but will Priest keep Damian from tearing into the Prizefighter?

Kevin heads to the ring!

The KO Show is back, and tonight’s guest is Seth Freakin’ Rollins! What will Kevin ask his new best buddy? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Kevin welcomes us to his show. He wishes he could say it’s good to be here in Tulsa, but that would be a vile lie because this place is brutal. Don’t get mad at him telling the truth! And another truth is that Kevin has a very special guest. He is a man Kevin is proud to call his best friend, and after this man beats Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble like he has in a plethora of matches before, he will be called the Universal Champion. Please welcome Seth! FRRRRREAKIN’! ROLLINS~! Rollins makes his way out to the ring, fired up as always, but especially now after having evaded a Bloodline beatdown on SmackDown last Friday.

Rollins takes up a mic and Kevin lets Rollins decide if they sit or stand. Rollins wants to stand, so he and Kevin kick the chairs aside. Kevin thanks Rollins for accepting his invitation to be a guest. Kevin wants to tell Rollins that he admires Rollins so much. There is so much Kevin admires about Rollins. From the great suits, like this striped one. He looks like a million bucks! MAHVELOUS! And even more so, Kevin admires Rollins’ courage. Do people realize how much guts it took for Rollins to show up on SmackDown, into the lion’s den, get face to face with Roman, and berate him into realizing that “The Head of the Table” is only possible because Rollins set the table.

“Yes, yes, yes! Kev, you hit the nail on the head right there!” Friday got a little testy, but the truth is, Roman’s rattled. Roman’s nervous, and dare Rollins say, Roman is scared. He’s scared! You heard it here first! Roman took the low road taking shots at Rollins’ family, sending the Usos after him. But everyone saw that the Usos couldn’t get the job done. Rollins says Roman is playing checkers while Rollins is playing chess! If Roman keeps this up, winning at the Rumble will be like taking candy from a baby. A little baby Roman! And Rollins will turn the title from blue to red and bring the Universal Championship back to their show, Monday Night Raw!

That’s huge! When Rollins wins, he’s staying on Raw with Kevin! Yes, 100%! Incredible! Then that means Raw has the best champion! Raw wouldn’t need Lesnar or Lashley, they’d have Rollins! Kevin again hits the nail on the head. Get rid of Lesnar. Rollins has a match with Lashley tonight, they can get rid of Lashley tonight! Who knows? Kevin likes the sound of that. But he has something of his own to announce and it is “earth shattering.” It will change the face of the industry! Right here and now, Kevin is officially declaring for the Royal Rumble! Rollins says that IS earth shattering!

Kevin will win the Rumble, Rollins will beat Roman, and the WWE Universe will get the match they… well, not deserve. But they’ll get the biggest Mania main-event ever! SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS VS KEVIN FREAKIN’ OWENS! Rollins likes where Kevin’s head is at. But here comes Damian Priest! Rollins says this is his time and Kevin’s show! If Priest steps any closer, Kevin will kick his ass! Kevin wants Rollins to stop but Priest tells Rollins to shut up! They’re both delusional idiots! There is not one person on this planet that believes Rollins will win at the Rumble. And Kevin is just a liar, so he isn’t winning, either.

And if Kevin doesn’t want to see Damian, then don’t wake him up. Oh and by the way, Priest talked with Pearce and Sonya. Their match tonight? That starts NOW! Kevin is freaking out, but Rollins tries to encourage him. Will it not matter when the Archer of Infamy takes aim?


Veer Mahaan.

In the animal kingdom, the lion bides its time as it hunts its prey. Step by step, until it finally strikes, leaving only scraps for the hyenas. When will the Million Dollar Arm finally strike?


Damian Priest VS Kevin Owens!

Raw returns and the bell rings. They tie up, Kevin waistlocks, but Priest pries free to wrench to a wristlock. Kevin rolls, headlocks, but Priest uses a chinbar to push Kevin back and power out. Kevin rams Priest, but then Kevin apologizes, Things speed up, Priest runs Kevin over with a shoulder! Priest runs in at the corner, but Kevin puts him on the apron! Kevin elbows Priest away, but Priest ROUNDHOUSES back! Priest steps in but into a SHOTGUN! Kevin stomps Priest at the ropes, lets off as the ref counts, then drags Priest to center for a SENTON! Kevin wraps on a chinlock and leans on Priest but fans rally up.

Priest fights up, priest the hold open but Kevin CLUBS him on the back. Kevin CHOPS, whips, but Priest reverses. Kevin KCISK back, CHOPS again, and CHOPS! Priest snarls, but Kevin apologizes again. This is just good, clean wrestling! Priest cools off, but then he fires off fast hands! WHEEL KICK! Kevin goes to a corner, Priest runs in but Kevin bails out. Fans boo, Priest keeps cool, but then Priest goes out the side. Priest runs in around the way, leaps off the steps, into a SUPERKICK! Kevin gets back in the ring to refresh the count, then FROG SPLASHES off the apron! Kevin roars while Priest sputters! Kevin drags Priest up and in as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Priest CLOBBERS Kevin! Fans fire up as Priest aims from a corner, and Priest throws haymakers! Priest fires off KICK after KICK, then a ROLLING ELBOW! Kevin rebounds, into a FLAPJACK! Priest runs at Kevin in the corner, for a big back elbow! Priest reels Kevin in, but Kevin wrenches out to ROCK Priest! Kevin whips, Priest rebounds to LARIAT! Priest gets Kevin up for the BROKEN ARROW! Cover, TWO! Priest is annoyed but he drags Kevin up. Priest ROCKS Kevin with a right, hoists him up top in the corner and ROCKS him again! Priest climbs up, but Kevin hits back!

Priest and Kevin brawl, Priest gets the edge. Priest brings Kevin up, but Kevin blocks the superplex! Kevin throws body shots, and even a headbutt! Kevin headbutts again, Priest falls down! Kevin adjusts, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Priest survives and Kevin thinks of what he has to do now. Kevin aims, kicks but no stunner! Kevin ducks the heel kick, tries gain, but Priest dragon sleepers! But Kevin slips free to pop Priest up, SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Priest survives again and Kevin is shocked! Fans rally up, Kevin aims, kicks, but Priest blocks to spin and ROUNDHOUSE! Kevin wobbles into a choke grip, SOUTH OF HEAVEN CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!!

Priest is shocked that Kevin survives! Kevin rolls away to a corner but Priest follows. Priest throws hands, whips Kevin corner to corner, but Kevin falls, clutching his leg. The ref checks on Kevin, Kevin flounders up saying it’s cramping up. The ref wants a medic to check this, fans boo but Priest isn’t sure what to make of this. But then Kevin suckers him in for a STUNNER!! Cover, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall

Priest was right about Kevin being a liar! But now, Kevin could also be a contender! Will Kevin add the US Championship to his Road to WrestleMania?


Backstage interview with Nikki A.S.H.

What is her plan heading into tonight’s match with former tag partner, Rhea Ripley? Nikki tells Sarah that this is no different than any other match. It is clear to Nikki now that she stands on her own, and she couldn’t feel any better. Rhea should be down and out, completely mortified after being proven the friend Nikki didn’t think she was. But Nikki, you were the one who attacked Rhea- Sarah, you need to get your facts straight! Rhea is the one who broke up the team. Rhea is the one who decided to take their friendship and flush it! She is the villain, not Nikki! And Nikki is the closest thing that the people of Tulsa will ever have to a real hero. She will be the People’s Hero.

And sometimes, heroes have to do things that regular people don’t understand. After tonight, Rhea will realize that she needs a superhero, whether she likes it or not. Nikki strikes her superhero pose and walks away, but will Rhea’s brutality smack some sense into her?


The Alpha Academy heads to the ring.

Pomp & Circumstance plays because today is Otis’ graduation! Will the NEW Raw Tag Team Champions be celebrating on top of their big title victory from last week?

Raw returns and Gable is at the podium. “Greetings and salutations my fellow colleagues and… Oh who am I kidding? I don’t have any colleagues here, considering I’m an Olympian with a Master’s Degree that did it with an immaculate 4.0 GPA! Thank you! Don’t do that. Don’t boo education. That’s gross, everybody.” But it makes sense, since the odds of anyone in Oklahoma having a Master’s, let alone graduating high school, are slim to none! Now shoosh! Tonight is about celebrating. Not just an institution but an individual. Gable could go on and on about himself, because his list is long.

But tonight is about a man who overcame the odds. An absolute tree trunk in the ring and a great student in the classroom. Gable’s prized pupil, his protégé, his number one guy, OTIS! Gable’s so proud. Last week, Otis applied the lessons and passed his final exam by decimating the moronic RKBRO and claimed the Academy’s rightful spot as tag team champions! So tonight, it is Gable’s honor and pleasure- Fans chant with “RKBRO! RKBRO!” They’re trying to have a ceremony for Otis! Gable presents to Otis, who has no last name anymore, the highest graduating honors from the Alpha Academy! The music plays again as they hug it out.

Gable says Otis has the floor. Look at that face! Otis thanks Chad, and says Gable has helped him reach his full potential. But now he has a warning: expect pure carnage for anyone who messes with the titles! They ain’t stopping, and they ain’t ever gonna stop! But here comes Matt Riddle! The Bro is in his own graduation gown, but it has mismatched sleeves… Riddle asks, “What’s up, bros? Big O, you’re looking pretty, pretty tight. And you guys don’t even wanna know what I had to get this graduation gown on time.” But when he got invited to this ceremony, he knew he had to make a very special speech.

Riddle brings out his speech, written on a napkin from this morning’s breakfast buffet. “Fellow graduates and Tulsinians. IT felt like just last week, Randy and I were the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions. We were livin’ on the edge, drivin’ with the top down, lettin’ the wind blow through our hair. We were just a couple o’ young, wild stallions runnin’ free. But today is graduation day. And our lives will change forever. Randy would always say, ‘Life comes at ya pretty fast.'” Gable stops him there, he has no idea what he’s going on about. Riddle was NOT invited to this. And Oklahoma can’t afford to lose another braincell, so just be on your way.

Riddle has “Gablestiltskin” take it easy. Riddle wants to say how proud he is of them. Them and their astronomical necks. See? He can use big words, too, Chad! Gable says Riddle is an idiot. He already ruined Otis’ night, so get to the point. RKBRO wants a rematch? Problem is, Riddle probably can’t even define the word rematch. Riddle so can! A rematch is… uh… when you have to light something up twice! Like a candle! But hey, a rematch sounds like a pretty sick idea. Fans wanna see it! Gable knew it. No wonder Orton left Riddle high and dry. Where even is he? Riddle unzips his gown to show off his “Hey Raaaandy” shirt.

Gable and Otis will give them a rematch, under one condition: they have to prove their mental aptitude in an Alpha Academy Academic Challenge! Otis suddenly looks worried. TO spell it out, it’s Riddle & Randy VS the Academy to prove the smarter team! Because we already saw who the physically dominant team is! Whoa, an academic challenge? Like Billy Madison? Or more like Wheel of Fortune? Riddle loves spinning that wheel, and maybe he and Otis could run in a giant hamster wheel. Gable kinda looks like a jacked hamster, but with three times the brains. Otis is furious and throws off his gown! Riddle wants Otis to back it up and cool off.

Otis storms up the ramp, barking about this being his night! But Orton gets in the ring to RKO Gable!! And then Riddle trips up Otis on the apron! RKBRO got one over on the Academy, and now Orton wears one of the red graduation gowns! Orton gets the mic to then tell the Academy, “We accept!” Will Riddle & Orton get PhDs in kicking the Academy’s asses?


Austin Theory visits Vince McMahon.

Theory thanks Vince for the rematch with Finn Balor. But uh, what’s Vince watching on his TV? It was the previous match, where Finn won. Oh… Theory knows he lost, but then he beat the hell outta Finn and nearly ended his career. In fact, it was like a half victory. No such thing. So tonight, Theory needs to beat Finn and beat him up. If Theory doesn’t, Vince will get someone to drag Theory to this office and Vince will beat Theory up! Smash him all over, and by the time he’s finished, it’ll just be blood, snot and broken teeth. Then Vince will take a selfie with that. And send it to Mama Theory! Oh… Theory has been warned, will he make good on this rematch?


WWE honors Martin Luther King Jr.

“Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. That all men would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” That dream of MLK’s, where we judge not by the color of skin but by character, is still alive. We will all reach the Promised Land together.


Finn Balor VS Austin Theory!

Raw returns and Theory makes his entrance. The Prince is back after being out a month, will he make Theory pay for every minute he’s missed? The bell rings, they circle and tie up, and Theory puts Finn on ropes. The ref counts, Theory lets off but Finn blocks the cheap shot to kick and headlock! Finn thrashes to grind Theory down, Theory powers out but Finn ducks and dodges, only for Theory to CLOBBER him with an elbow! Theory drags Finn out of the ring to smack off the apron! And then whip him into barriers! Theory goes into the ring and the ring count climbs. Finn stands but Theory goes out after him.

Theory whips, Finn reverses, and Theory hits barriers! Finn then hits a SLINGBLADE! Theory writhes, the count is rising, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Finn rallies, trips and DOUBLE STOMPS Theory down! Theory goes to a corner, Finn runs in and CHOPS! Finn whips Theory corner to corner, Theory reverse but Finn reverses back, ELBOW DROP DDT! Cover, TWO! Finn snarls, Theory crawl to ropes and Finn KICKS him out of the ring! Finn drags Theory up but Theory HOTSHOTS! Theory somersaults in, but into a SLINGBLADE! Finn then runs, into a LARIAT from Theory! Theory hauls Finn up to FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Fireman’s carry, A T- NO! Finn makes it a roll up, TWO! Theory and Finn get up, and Finn goes to the apron. Finn shoulders into Theory, GAMANGIRIS, then climbs up!

But Theory avoids the Coup De Grace to somersault SHOTGUN! Fireman’s carry, A T L!! Cover, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

Theory saves himself from Vince’s wrath, and he gets his victory selfie. But to make good on what Vince told him, Theory fires off fists! Theory then drags Finn up, fireman’s carries again, for another A T L! Theory tells Finn to expect the unexpected. But will Finn find a way to teach Theory and Mr. McMahon respect for The Prince?


Nikki A.S.H. VS Rhea Ripley!

Before the match, Rhea is interviewed backstage. How does she respond to Nikki saying it was Rhea who ruined the relationship? Rhea says she never intended for this to hurt their friendship. But Nikki made up her mind. Rhea isn’t one to forgive very easily, so what kind of hero attacks a friend? If Rhea’s the villain here, than Nikki’s more delirious than Rhea thought. It’s time to remind everyone who Rhea Ripley is. Is Nikki in for a Nightmare tonight?

Raw returns and Nikki makes her entrance, but then so do Queen Zelina Vega and Carmella. Mella says, “Hear ye, hear ye, Tulsa. The Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE and Your Queen have arrived to tell everyone in this dusty arena that everything we predicted about Nikki A.S.H. has come true.” Zelina’s word is absolute, and therefore she is correct by default. Not only is she a beloved queen, but also a fairy godmother. Rhea would never have been rid of Nikki without their little push. Rhea should be thanking them! Because they’ve been telling Rhea for weeks that if she stuck with an Almost Superhero, she’d never be nothing more than an almost threat.

But seems things are too late. Rhea doesn’t look like anything more than a low class loser. Without Nikki as her security blanket, does Rhea have what it takes? As Zelina’s said, you’re either the most powerful women in the room, or you’re nothing. Zelina is queen, but Rhea will be standing there, covered in trash, looking for someone to leech off of. Rhea doesn’t have the guts to be champion all on her own. Rhea tells them to bring it, then, but Nikki goes after Rhea! The ref wants Nikki to let off, but Nikki keeps hammering Rhea down! Rhea hits back but Nikki throws Rhea down! Nikki is seething, and then she drags Rhea up. Rhea kicks Nikki away but Nikki throws her out!

Nikki WRECKS Rhea with a dropkick, then goes out to RAM her into steel steps! The Almost Superhero leaves Rhea down, but the match is called off. Will Rhea get right? Or will she get revenge?


Dana Brooke and Reggie regroup backstage.

What did they talk about? Staying low and staying mobile. That’s right! Reggie is faster, stronger and amazing! Use Omos’ size against him, tire him out, and go for the legs. Meanwhile, R-Truth, Akira Tozawa, Tamina, and a referee are watching while eating popcorn. Dana says Reggie can be vicious and ruthless while also super athletic. Reggie says, “Who am I kidding?” He ran into Omos full speed and bounced off him! Dana says Reggie is the most capable man she knows. Just stay away from him. But even Dana looks worried. Truth says Dana must really hate Reggie. She just told him to get got! Will Reggie even survive his run-in with Omos?

Reggie w/ Dana Brooke VS Omos!

Raw returns and Reggie makes his entrance. Dana is cheering him on, but she still looks very worried. Omos points out the clear height difference, and then he roars! Even that scares Reggie! But then here come the 24/7 Championship hunters! Dana runs into the ring, scoots under Omos and out the other side. Omos catches Tozawa, TOSSES him out, then CLOBBERS Truth! Tamina stares Omos down and Reggie climbs the corner. Tamina goes around Omos, the bell rings, and Reggie leaps! Into Omos’ arms! Omos uses both hands for the MOUNTAIN TOSS! Omos says it’s that easy. Cover, Omos wins.

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

Omos didn’t break a sweat with that one! Will the colossus of Raw continue to dominate until he’s on top of the world?


Maryse heads to the ring!

As her note said, she is here to talk with Beth face-to-face. But will that all this be? Or do Miz & Mrs. have a plan for the Glamazon? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Maryse has a mic to say, “Bonsoir (good evening), Tulsa.” She assures us The Miz couldn’t make it. He has a very big mouth and likes to agree to things without asking her first, so tonight, she is cleaning up his mess. She then asks Beth to come out alone so they can do this right. Woman to woman, wife to wife and mother to mother, Maryse wants to talk. Beth makes her entrance, but Edge still follows her out. Maryse wants Edge to wait on the ramp until they’ve had this conversation. There aren’t many ways to put this, but the match at the Rumble, it has to be canceled. Uh, okay. This oughta be good, so Beth is all ears.

Maryse says she doesn’t want it, surely Beth doesn’t want it, and the fans don’t want it! Fans boo, they DO want it. Maryse is trying to have a heartfelt moment, guys. Really? Really? Really? Maryse is sure sounding like Miz here… Maryse says she has the mic, so she can be louder than everyone here. It doesn’t matter what you think! Now she’s The Rock? But anyway, Maryse wants Beth to listen. They’re from the same generation in WWE. They fought together. Remember those two minute matches? Fans chant, “You Suck!” but Maryse asks if they’re done.

But Beth, c’mon. They fought together and made the Women’s Division what it is today! They’re great at what they do! Just look at them! Women nowadays main event WrestleMania thanks to these two! So if anything, Maryse thinks that they should be on the same team. They should be a unit! Friends! Even their daughters can be friends! They can have play dates, dinners, or even just a coffee. Beth wants Maryse to know that she speaks for everyone here when she says, “Just shut up!” Seriously? BFF’s? Playdates? Is anyone buying this? NOPE! So that means Maryse takes acting lessons from The Miz.

Beth boils it down to a simple answer: the match is NOT off. Beth is NOT missing the chance to tag team with her husband for the first time ever. And she is NOT missing the chance to Glam Slam Maryse’s ass through the canvas! In fact, why not give the fans a preview? Beth storms up to the ring but Maryse stays put. Wait, Miz attacks Edge at the ramp! But Edge DECKS Miz! Maryse really was lying about Miz being at home! But then Maryse CLOBBERS Beth with her purse! What’s in that bag?! Maryse and Miz decide to show us: it was a BRICK! A literal BRICK! Maryse tosses her hair back and celebrates with The Miz. But will Edge and Beth only look to break The It Couple for that one?


The Street Profits are fired up backstage!

Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford have a dream! The dream is that they have a plan and will execute it and win! The best part is, they do it in Tulsa, Oklahoma~! YESSIR! All the bodies in the ring, it’ll be like a mini Rumble. Which is great cuz the Profits were the first to declare for this year’s Rumble! Their first one, tossin’ bodies! But will Ford throw Dawkins? Rey Mysterio & Dom walk over to say not to worry. They’re a team tonight, and they’ll also be in the Rumble. Rey has to get this off his chest: Los Mysterios will outlast 28 other men in the Rumble. And then, not only will they throw those guys out, they’ll take the Mysterio name back to the Mania main event!

Okay, all due respect, that’s only if the Profits don’t make it there first. Because the Profits are up! And WE WANT THE SMOKE! Will these four burn it down to then light it up on the Road to WrestleMania?

8 Man Tag: The Street Profits & The Mysterios VS Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez & The Dirty Dawgs!

Raw returns and the Dawgs make their entrance. Then the Pride of Nigeria and his right hand man make their entrance. Teams sort out, Dolph Ziggler starts against Dom. They tie up, Dom waistlocks but Ziggler elbows free. Ziggler talks trash, runs, but Dom follows to RANA! Dom runs at Ziggler in the corner but Ziggler CLOBBERS Dom! Tag to Robert Roode and he stomps Dom. Roode drags Dom up, suplexes, but Dom knees free! Dom kicks low, tags Rey, and Rey gets a boost to RANA! Rey whips, Roode reverses but Rey dodges and tilt-o-whirl headscissors! Rey runs in but Roode puts him on the apron. Rey DECKS Roode, climbs, and leaps, but the rana is blocked

Roode brings Rey up, but Rey RANAS Roode out of the ring! Ziggler and Dom get in, Dom whips but Ziggler throws Dom up and out! Ford and Dawkins DROPKCIK Ziggler out! All eight men are on the outside now and shouting, but the ref keeps the peace while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns, Roode tags Ziggler and the Dawgs double whip Rey to double elbow him down. Then the Dawgs hit Rey’s corner to knock everyone down! Fans boo but Ziggler drags Rey over to tag Apollo. Apollo hits a STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Ziggler is upset on Apollo’s behalf, but Apollo decides he’ll finish it now. Apollo gets Rey up, trophy lifts, but Rey fights free to a DDT! Both men are down and fans fire up! Rey crawls, Dawks is back! Hot tag to the Curse of Greatness! And he rallies on everyone! He hurdles Apollo to hit a FLYING BACK ELBOW! Roode runs into an EXPLODER! Ziggler runs into an EXPLODER!

Dawkins gives Apollo a CYCLONE SPLASH, then the SILENCER! But Azeez gets in to break the cover! Ford returns to ENZIGURI Azeez out! The Dawgs TOSS Ford out! But the Mysterios dropkick the Dawgs onto the ropes! STEREO 619’s! Dom goes up and out to LEAP at Azeez! But Azeez catches him! Rey jumps to add on, the Mysterios take out Azeez! But Apollo rolls Dawkins up! TWO, and pop-up for SKY HIGH! Tag to Ford, he’s up top! FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, the Profits & Mysterios win!

Winners: The Street Profits & The Mysterios, by pinfall

Ford was five-star again with that splash, but then the Mysterios decide to dump the Profits out! Rey says that’s nothing personal, just a sample of the Rumble. And then he dumps Dom out! The son’s got a lot to learn still. But will Dom & Rey look to be in that final handful at the Rumble to put their name back on the WrestleMania marquee?


WWE looks at the parallels of Lashley and Lesnar.

“Forge: to form by heating and hammering; to beat into shape.” Great warriors are born at the forge, shaped by the heat of the fire and tried in the brutality of combat. This is the beginning of two such warriors. “The great plains often invoke idyllic dreams of an unending cascades of crops and green pastures. But in winter, these dreams are overtaken by the harsh reality of desolation and decay. It is here that the heart of a Beast was forged, and a Conqueror was born.” Brock Lesnar is a two-time NCAA All American with over 100 victories, and the NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion. And just five months after his WWE debut, The Next Big Thing was WWE Champion.

After ravaging every challenger in the WWE, the Beast would go to the UFC, and in just three fights, he’d reign supreme as the UFC Heavyweight Champion. Then upon returning to the WWE, Lesnar’s path of devastation continued. He took 16-time WWE Champion John Cena to Suplex City, ended The Undertaker’s WrestleMania undefeated streak, and cemented his dominance as a three-time Universal and six-time World Champion. He is a Beast without limits, without remorse, and without fear.

“Discipline. Restraint. Control. It is from these fires that the All Mighty was forged. Son of a US Army drill sergeant, Bobby Lashley learned at an early age that only by rigorously harnessing his natural ability that he would the greatness that he sought.” A three-time NAIA wrestling champion, Lashley would follow his father’s footsteps into the Army, and he honed his craft onto his way to winning gold in the Armed Forces Championship. Lashley would emerge in WWE as a peak physical specimen, unleashing a torrent of physical power and ferocity. But while he won gold, Lashley couldn’t quite find that next level.

A sojourn into MMA ignited the fires and Lashley had a 15-2 record. Then he’d return to the WWE and he would unleash havoc on opponent after opponent with his arsenal of high impact moves, headlined by the Hurt Lock full nelson. He would become United States Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and ultimately, WWE World Champion. Now, Lashley is ready for the one challenge that eluded him. For 20 years, Lashley believes Lesnar was ducking him. But Lesnar is confident that if they’d met before, Lesnar would’ve already beaten him. But the Royal Rumble will see the champion Beast collide with an All Mighty challenger.

These paths have finally crossed. Two warriors, forged in flame, battle and gold, fight for the ultimate prize. Only one emerges THE WWE World Champion. Will the ring even stay standing as these wage war?


The Miz & Maryse are heading out.

Kevin Patrick stops them to ask about that vicious attack. Miz says it took ONE SHOT to take down the Glamazon! Now Beth needs medical attention! Now the Grit Couple is the SH- Maryse stops Miz there. The girls are watching at home. Oh, right. Daddy loves ya, girls! And Miz loves Mommy. He is the best husband ever, because he remembered that Maryse’s birthday is next week! So before saying bonny nut- No, no, it’s bonne nuit. The T is silent. Right, bonne nuit to the Grit Couple, Miz is going to throw the most expensive, extravagant and amazing birthday party that anyone has ever seen, because Miz loves Maryse.

Nothing, especially not Edge & Beth, is stronger than their love. These two make-out right in front of us… But will announcing the birthday party here come back to bite the It Couple?


Alexa Bliss has another therapy session.

She and her therapist sit quietly a moment before he welcomes her back. He’s happy to say that there are less breakable things here in the office. She isn’t sure about that. But these sessions will continue. He will not tolerate a repeat of last week, though. He does apologize for showing her such a sensitive subject, but he had to know where she stood psychological. He promises her that she will be on the road to recovery. Neat. Now, let’s do word association. Okay, sure. How does she feel about the word, “Trust.” “Lily.” Friend? Lily. Home? Lily. Doll… Lily. Imaginary. Alexa gets up out of her seat and glares at him. Okay, time’s up.

The doc bolts but Alexa cools off. She sits back down, looks around the room, but stays quiet. Will Alexa ever get over her twistedly tragic past?


Bobby Lashley w/ MVP VS Seth Rollins!

The Rocky Mountain Machine is ready to wreck everything, including Brock Lesnar. Meanwhile, The Visionary is preparing to repeat history and defeat Roman Reigns once again. But who will have some major momentum on their side going towards those titanic title matches? The main event of top championship challengers begins after the break!

Raw returns and Rollins makes his entrance. The bell rings and Lashley glares while Rollins smirks. The two circle, fans rally up, and the two tie up. Rollins headlocks, Lashley powers up to power out, but Rollins duck sand dodges. Lashley hurdles then runs Rollins over! Fans cheer as Lashley mocks Rollins’ pose. The two reset, circle and tie up again. Rollins waistlocks, Lashley uses ropes to buck Rollins away, but Rollins hurdles and drops to then go perpendicular, SLINGBLADE! Rollins kicks, reels Lashley in, but Lashley back drops free! Lashley stalks Rollins, but Rollins fights the full nelson! Rollins drops to KICK Lashley, then he dumps Lashley out!

Rollins builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit but Lashley stays up! Rollins goes back in, builds speed again, DIVES, but into a clinch! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Lashley roars and Rollins flounders while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins has Lashley down now! Rollins drags Lashley to a corner to SLAM a leg against the post! Rollins SLAMS the leg again, talks trash to MVP, then gets in as the ring count reaches 5 of 10. Rollins drags Lashley up, puts the bad leg in the ropes, pulls until the ref counts, then dropkicks the leg! Lashley falls, Rollins drags him to center and steps through to drop a leg on the knee! Lashley snarls and fans rally up. MVP coaches Lashley, but Rollins drops another leg on the bad knee! And then another! Rollins has the toehold, ties up the legs, but Lashley fights, only for Rollins to still get the Indian Deathlock!

Rollins keeps Lashley’s hands away while Lashley endures the hold. Rollins SLAPS Lashley in the side, but Lashley pulls hair! The ref reprimands, Lashley lets go but he punches Rollins! Rollins lets the legs free, but then he gets the bad one for a DRAGON SCREW! And into a HALF CRAB! Lashley endures, even as Rollins sits deep! Lashley powers up, fans rally up, and Lashley turns, only for Rollins to stomp the leg! Rollins has the Half Crab again! MVP coaches Lashley more but Rollins talks trash on “Bob.” Lashley fights up, turns things over, and he boots Rollins away! Rollins falls out of the ring but he’s right back in! Lashley avoids the stomp for a COMPLETE SHOT!

MVP says that’s the All Mighty Lashley he knows! Lashley grits his teeth and pushes up, just as Rollins also sits up. Rollins turns around into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! And then another! Lashley runs in at the corner, to RAM into Rollins! Lashley turns Rollins around, NECKBREAKER! Lashley fires up and Tulsa fires up with him! Lashley gets Rollins up, suplexes, but Rollins fights free! Lashley kicks low to gut wrench, DOMINATOR! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives but MVP coaches Lashley to keep going. Lashley aims from a corner, Rollins rises, Lashley runs in, into a KNEE! Rollins hits a ROLLING ELBOW! Then runs, but into a scoop!

Rollins slips out, shoves Lashley into buckles, then kicks low! Rollins underhooks the arms, PEDIGREE!! Cover, TWO!?! Lashley survives but Rollins is too tired to be shocked! Fans rally behind Lashley but Rollins stands. Rollins goes to a corner, climbs up top, but Lashley gets him with a choke grip! Lashley climbs up, but Rollins fights with elbows! But Lashley clinches, for a SUPER BELLY2BELLY!! Rollins goes flying to the other side of the ring! Lashley gets back to a corner but the Hurt Business go after him!!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by disqualification

Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin mug Lashley but Lashley fights back! That’s still 2v1, and they POST him! Alexander & Benjamin shout that he’s brought this upon himself, and then the POST Lashley again! They glare at MVP but then drag Lashley back up. But Lashley DOUBLE SUPLEXES them instead! COMPLETE SHOT for Benjamin! Fireman’s carry and the POST for Alexander! Lashley SPEARS Benjamin through barriers! Rollins is shocked at seeing the carnage, but the USOS run out from the crowd! Rollins turns around, into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Jimmy & Jey make up for missing the target on SmackDown!

Rollins lost the match and then got got! Will he stand a chance of dethroning the Head of the Table if the Usos can get him on his show? As for Lashley, will he be able to go for the gold if he has his former henchmen coming after him?

My Thoughts:

This was a decent episode, but with really glaring low points. Does Vince just hate Women’s Wrestling again? Why is it that the matches tonight were basically filler to move the story along? Nikki VS Rhea being No Contest was whatever since it at least went with story. But that opening tag match had Becky, Piper, Bianca and Liv, all of which are basically the stars of the Raw Women’s Division. Yet Vince couldn’t be bothered to give that match more than a bathroom break amount of time! I suppose because it was Piper ending it all very quickly, we’re supposed to think Piper is that great, but honestly it just hurt all four women. If Bianca was taken out by just a corner splash, how is she to win the Rumble?

Finn VS Theory 2 was also way too short. I get there was a commercial break in the middle but that just makes it worse. Theory winning was clean also a shame, and not because of Vince’s weird threat to him. I get that Theory needed to win to make a feud out of this, but why not dirty it up a little? When is Finn going to get a chance to comment on how Theory is Vince’s pet project and all that? This whole thing is just hurting my brain. And only a little less than the Veer Mahaan videos coming back. He better show up in the Rumble. And this week’s Alexa therapy session was filler. It was just her associating everything with Lily but not even in a more compelling way than last week’s “triggered Alexa” vignette.

We got a good 8 Man Tag but it was also on the short side. It was pretty standard Rumble season stuff for Rey & Dom to dump the Profits out, but Rey dumping Dom was a bit of a surprise. Maybe Dom will do the same during the Rumble on Rey? I did appreciate them weaving three backstage segments into one, going from Reggie wanting advice from Edge but basically striking out, and then Edge talking with Priest and then Priest talking with Kevin. If Dana still has the 24/7 title come the Women’s Rumble, can that title end up hot potato’d around to end up on someone from SmackDown? Or does Fox just hate that title?

Omos of course destroyed Reggie, but I almost thought he was going to somehow end up 24/7 champion. That’d probably put the end to the title, though, because who would even try to take it from him? Kevin had a very good match with Priest, and his win definitely puts him in line for the US Championship, but who knows if Kevin will even go for it with him so closely connected to Rollins in their stories. And we got a good promo segment out of Maryse and Beth. But Maryse bringing up the Diva Era short matches and yet we got a short women’s match here, the irony clearly goes over Vince’s thick head. That brick in the purse, though. And telegraphing the birthday stuff for next week, Maryse’s cake is definitely going into someone’s face.

The Alpha Academy graduation was a pretty good segment. I am sure Riddle was referencing something but I can’t place it. I can’t believe they’re kayfabing that Otis never had the last name “Dozovic.” That’s taking Vince’s love of editing names to a new, dumber level. But I loved the face Otis made when Gable said they were going to have a tag team academic challenge. He’s going to end up the weak link for his team since this graduation was based on his in-ring skills. The Lesnar Lashley vignette was well made, but a rather melodramatic theme in the narration. After the string of short matches, it just felt like WWE trying too hard to be cinematic and not enough about action.

Lashley VS Rollins was great stuff, until the Hurt Business “ruined” things. It just keeps reminding us of how flippant they’ve been with that faction’s story. They work together against Goldberg but then not together against Lesnar, and now the Hurt Business is just being thrown at Lashley in an attempt to build Lashley as brutal and dominant without it being in the matches. The Usos getting the drop on Rollins was pretty good, though, since that carries over from SmackDown. If they’d let it just be the Usos trying to mess with Rollins, I think things would’ve felt a bit better.

My Score: 8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (1/17/22)

Raleigh gets Elevated!



AEW Elevation Coverage

A lucky seven for Elevation!

AEW continues in Raleigh and has a strong seven for Elevation! Jay Lethal is keeping himself sharp for what could be an FTW Championship showdown!


  • Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty VS JR Miller & Marcus Kross; Sydal & Moriarty wins.
  • Tay Conti VS Ameera; Conti wins.
  • Gunn Club VS JB Cole & T.I.M; Gunn Club wins.
  • Frankie Kazarian VS Labron Kozone; Kaz wins.
  • Ruby Soho VS Kenzie Page; Soho wins.
  • Private Party VS Chase Emory & Patrick Scott; Private Party wins.
  • Jay Lethal VS Alexander Moss; Lethal wins.


Pretty clear cut stuff here, but I like that we’re seeing Sydal & Moriarty in tag action again. Kenzie Page is back in AEW and she’ll give Ruby Soho a good match. Good to see Kaz back in action, they kinda let the ball drop on his Elite Hunter story but maybe he can build himself up towards the TNT Championship. And I have a feeling in Gunn Club’s match, fans will troll Austin & Colten as “Ass Boys” again and that could come close to costing them.
