Brock Lesnar waits outside Roman Reigns’ room.

Kayla Braxton asks him if he’s thought about the consequences of last week. Well, Roman had time to think. Lesnar’s paid fines, bought some vehicles, and he even got Roman a new SUV. In his favorite color, too: blood red. And management had a little talk with Lesnar. Lesnar is not to make physical contact unless provoked. So… Tonight, Lesnar will just hang out in Roman’s locker room and wait for that provoking. Lesnar steps in through the doors, walks around. This is what Roman gets? Nice. Lesnar helps himself to some grapes, puts his hat on a lap and takes a seat at the couch. Lesnar puts his feet up on the table and breaks it! Will he do the same to the Head of the Table?


Rick Boogs makes his entrance!

He gets the call ‘n’ response with Brooklyn, and he’s here to rock with one-half of the future SmackDown Tag Team Champions! Shinsukeee… NakamurAAAAAA~! McAfee rocks out as the King of Strong Style makes his way to the ring, but will Nakamura avenge Boogs by taking out the other Uso?

Jimmy Uso w/ Jey Uso VS Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Rick Boogs!

After a recap from last week, the Usos make their entrance, and then they go right after Nakamura and Boogs! Nakamura fights back, Boogs lifts Jey! Boogs presses Jey like last week, and throws him at Jimmy! The Usos go down and fans fire up as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and this match begins! They tie up, break, then tie up again. They break again, tie up, and Jimmy headlocks. Nakamura powers out but Jimmy runs him over! The Usos say #WeTheOnes but Nakamura is up. He gets around Jimmy to waistlock, but Jimmy wrenches out to a wristlock. Nakamura endures as Jimmy twists the wrist, but Nakamura rolls and kips up to wrench and cartwheel to wrench back! Nakamura hammerlocks, headlocks, but Jimmy pulls hair. Jimmy headlocks, Nakamura powers out, but Jimmy runs him over again! But Nakamura rolls Jimmy, only for Jimmy to avoid the buzzsaw!

Nakamura says HE the one, and then says, “C’MON~!” Jimmy snarls, he runs in, but into a knee! Snapmare and knee drop! Nakamura drags Jimmy up, bumps him off buckles, then more buckles. Nakamura bumps Jimmy off a third corner, then gives him GOOD VIBRATIONS! The ref counts, Nakamura lets off and Jimmy bails out. Nakamura slides out to CLUB Jimmy and put him on the apron. Nakamura has Jey move aside, so he can run and KNEE Jimmy back in! Nakamura slides in, but Jimmy CLOBBERS him! Jimmy drags Nakamura up, for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO!

Jimmy grows frustrated but he clamps on a chinlock. Jimmy grinds Nakamura down, Nakamura endures and fights up, but Jimmy pushes him down to drop a knee! Jimmy clamps the chinlock back on but Nakamura fights back up. Jimmy throws Nakamura down by his hair! The fans boo as the Usos say #WeTheOnes again, then Jimmy fireman’s carries. Nakamura gets to the apron, shoulders back in, and blocks the boot, only to get the DRAGON WHIP! Down goes Nakamura! Boogs coaches Nakamura on but Jey applauds Jimmy. Jimmy builds speed, but into a GAMANGIRI! Jimmy tumbles down and Nakamura fires up as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Jimmy has Nakamura in a chinlock. Nakamura throws body shots, Jimmy scoops but Nakamura slips off! Nakamura runs to DYNAMIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Nakamura, he fires off a strike fest, but Jimmy blocks a kick to get an ENZIGURI! Nakamura whips, Jimmy reverses, but Nakamura knees back! Nakamura puts Jimmy up top, rolls and runs to TOP SHELF KNEE! Cover, TWO! Nakamura throws knees into Jimmy’ shead ‘n’ shoulders, then stomps him! Nakamura drags Jimmy up, wraps on a chinlock, but Jimmy fights the exploder! Jimmy elbows free and CHOPS!

Nakamura is in a corner., he BOOTS back, then goes up! FLYING KNEE! Boogs is fired up for Nakamura and Nakamura goes to the corner! “YAO~!” But Jey CLOBBERS Boogs! Nakamura notices that and glares at Jey! But Jimmy SUPERKICKS Nakamura! Cover, TWO!! Nakamura survives and Brooklyn is fired up while the Usos are furious! Jimmy tells Jey to get Boogs’ guitar! They’re gonna do like they did last week! But Boogs stops Jey! They fight over the Gibson and Boogs POSTS Jey! Jimmy is freaking out, he ducks a roundhouse but not the WHEEL KICK! Nakamura aims, KINSHASA!! Cover, Nakamura wins!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall

The King of Strong Style and Boogs celebrate! They’ve gone 2-0 on the Usos 1v1, but will they be able to use this momentum to take those tag titles?


Lesnar is still lounging in the Tribal Chief suite.

He’s basically gone through all the grapes, but he hates the champagne. He spits it out, and throws the bottle at the wall. But will he get a palate cleanser in the form of beating up Roman Reigns?


Next week is the WWE Hall of Fame!

It’ll be on after SmackDown, live in Dallas and on the Peacock! There, Vince McMahon will induct The Undertaker, and the late, great Shad Gaspard will be given the Ultimate Warrior Award.


Backstage interview with Drew McIntyre.

Kayla knows the Scottish Warrior goes 1v1 with the “undefeated” Happy Corbin. But McIntyre knows where this is going. Can’t compare Corbin and McIntyre’s previous opponents because this is personal. Corbin tried to end McIntyre’s career but he wasn’t successful. McIntyre has loved every single second of making Corbin’s live a living hell! It makes McIntyre feel something inside. It makes him… happy. McIntyre could’ve taken Corbin out at any time, but he wants to do it at WrestleMania with the most eyes watching! And McIntyre will wipe that stupid, smug, pathetic grin off Corbin’s face… permanently!


Corbin reflects on his last 12 months.

Can you believe how low he was last Summer? 2021 was the most challenging year of his life. He lost all his money, his possessions, and even his wife and kids. He was at rock bottom. He was so desperate, he want to Las Vegas with his last $20 and turned it into millions! He got all those things back. Only poor people say money doesn’t buy you happiness! Now he has wealth, fame, and the most hilarious best friend, “Mad Cap” Riddick Moss! He is undefeated since becoming Happy, and his best day was Day One, when McIntyre “stuck his neck out” for Corbin. Corbin beat down the Scottish Psycho again and again, made fun of him each time, and knows his happiness will become euphoria when he finally ends McIntyre’s career!

Corbin and Moss watch that video package.

“Un-de-feated! My life is an inspiration!” They could do a movie! Or a trilogy! Part one: get rich. Part two: destroy McIntyre at Day One. Part Three: embarrass McIntyre at WrestleMania! He could even get an Oscar: Happiest man alive as he celebrates over McIntyre’s limp body. Moss even has an idea for the title! Bald Fellas! Corbin isn’t laughing. Moss’ humor seems to be missing the mark lately. Will he have to work on getting new material in time for the most stupendous fight of Corbin’s career?


Kofi Kingston VS Ridge Holland w/ Sheamus & “Butch” Pete Dunne!

Kofi tried to avenge Big E’s broken neck last week, but the chaos caused by the Celtic Warrior and Bruiserweight allowed Ridge to hit him with Northern Grit. Will Kofi be better prepared this time and finally get even?

SmackDown returns as Kofi makes his entrance, and he has a mic. He says that when he told these guys Ridge was having a match with a New Day member, Kofi didn’t mean himself. Oh~ no~! But if not Kofi, then who? Who who who? KING XAVIER WOODS! The King of the Ring is back, and now he will battle for the honor of Big E! Will Woods and his even shinier crown exact vengeance upon Sheamus’ sidekick?

Xavier Woods w/ Kofi Kingston VS Ridge Holland w/ Sheamus & “Butch” Pete Dunne!

The bell rings and Woods mule kicks! And CHOPS! And fires off forearms and haymakers! Ridge ROCKS Woods, whips him to ropes, but Woods ducks and dodges to slide and mule kick a leg! Woods runs, but Ridge runs to POUNCE Woods! Ridge roars and Sheamus gloats while fans boo. Ridge talks trash on Kofi, he drags Woods up, but Woods cradles! WOODS WINS!

Winner: Xavier Woods, by pinfall

The New Day gets away, having just punked out Ridge! Will The Fella and his boys want after ya bois, the NEW~ DAY?


SmackDown receives a message from Paul Heyman.

The Special Counsel introduces himself, and then introduces the Tribal Chief. Roman says he knows Brooklyn is dying to acknowledge their Tribal Chief but that’ll have to wait. Roman and Heyman have handled business all over the city, and they ate at Del Frisco’s steakhouse. Easily the best in the whole city. And the sides, oh! At least 5 grand worth. And then they stopped by Madison Square Garden, the place Roman busted Lesnar open in. How can anyone forget? And while on that subject, Roman warns Lesnar once. Lensar better get his ass out of Roman’s suite in the Barclays Center before Roman arrives, or he’ll bust that head open again. Will the Beast do as he’s told?


Ronda Rousey is here!

The Baddest Woman on the Planet is back, even after getting body slammed by Charlotte Flair through the announce table. What will Rowdy Ronda have to say to the SmackDown Women’s Champion this time? We find out, after the break.

SmackDown returns and after a recap of last week, Ronda gets the mic to speak. “Y’know what, Charlotte? Just for that, I’m not gonna take your title. No, next weekend on WrestleMania Saturday, when you tap out, you’re gonna give it to me. And then you can call me your new SmackDown Women’s Champion. SmackDown Women’s Champion? Why do we even have to say ‘women’ in there? You can call me your new SmackDown Champion!” And Ronda won’t wait on Charlotte. Leave the hells and excuses backstage to get your Barbie ass out here! Ronda waits, but Charlotte responds on the titantron.

“That was a great speech. Loved the visuals. But did you actually think I was gonna be in Brooklyn tonight? Did you actually think I was going to step foot in that low rent city before WrestleMania? I don’t know who you think you are, but I don’t answer when you call. You’re the contender, I’m the champion.” Ronda says she knows exactly who she is. She’s THE Ronda Rousey. But Charlotte doesn’t. Ronda broke her first arm at 14 years old, and was so proud, she kept count. Until she just lost count. Ooooh~, Charlotte’s shaking in her boots. She actually ran out of way sot hurt Ronda. She’d have to throw Ronda off the bridge to get any kind of satisfaction. But Charlotte will just have to wait until next week.

Ronda says that’s cute. Charlotte must think she’s the Ronda of WWE, huh? But she’s not, and here’s why. If Charlotte beats Ronda, it will hands down be the biggest win of Charlotte’s career. As for when Ronda beats Charlotte at her own game, it’ll just be another lost count. The Baddest Woman leaves it at that mic drop, but will she be able to drop the Queen once and for all?


Kayla Braxton interviews Lesnar backstage again.

He’s still in Roman’s suite, and he allows her to sit on the couch. Would she like some grapes? No, that’s fine.  Maybe some of that cheap champagne? No. She asks if Brock is going to leave. Why? He’s having so much fun! In fact, Lesnar suggests Kayla find Roman and tell him to get her asap. Lesnar’s running out of things to smash. He throws a lamp at the wall! Will the Head of the Table hurry before Lesnar starts smashing the room itself?


Championship Contenders Match: Ricochet VS Angel Garza w/ Humberto Carrillo!

The One and Only wants to be a fighting champion, and this is a chance for a Lethal Lover to get their title shot. Humberto & Angel give a young lady the Los Lotharios Kiss Cam spotlight, but will Garza get himself a golden ticket to WrestleMania?

SmackDown returns and the match begins. Garza throws his tearaway pants at Ricochet but Ricochet dodges to fire off haymakers and CHOPS! Garza puts Ricochet in the corner, CHOPS, but Ricochet hits back! They brawl, Garza fires off more shots, then he puts Ricochet in the corner. The ref counts but Garza uppercuts Ricochet! Ricochet BOOTS back, goes up, but Garza YANKS Ricochet down! Ricochet hits buckles, rolls away but Garza drags him back to SLAM the leg down, then SLAM Ricochet’s head down! Garza throws down fists, stalks Ricochet to ropes, and then chokes him on the ropes!

Garza grinds Ricochet against the ropes, lets off to put him in a corner, and then UPPERCUT again! Garza covers with a smug smirk, TWO! Garza clamps on with a headlock and he grinds Ricochet down. Ricochet fight sup, but Garza throws him into a corner! Ricochet BOOTS Garza, but Garza rolls back, only for Ricochet to SHOTGUN dropkick him tot he corner! Ricochet runs in, shoulders in the corner and bumps Garza off buckles, tot hen KICK the buckle! Garza staggers, Ricochet springboards to FLYING LARIAT! Fans fire up and Ricochet goes up the corner, only for Carrillo to rush in! Ricochet jumps away, but into a roll-up! GARZA WINS!

Winner: Angel Garza, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the Intercontinental Championship)

Ricochet wants everyone to hold on. He says it won’t go like that tonight. Good to see the cousins stick together like that, that’s cool. But Ricochet will break up the family reunion. It won’t happen at his expense. So Carrillo, you come on in here and you get in the ring to take the L Garza was gonna get. Definitely a fighting champion, but will Ricochet tire himself out going twice in a row?

Championship Contenders Match: Ricochet VS Humberto Carrillo w/ Angel Garza!

The bell rings, Ricochet kicks Carrillo and fires off! Carrillo throws body shots and haymakers, then wrenches to CLUB the arm. Carrillo whips, Ricochet rolls off the back, then rolls under to handspring headscissor! Fans fire up and Ricochet dropkicks Carrillo out of the ring! Ricochet wants Carrillo to get back in already and fans boo. Carrillo tells them to shut up and he takes his time getting back in. Ricochet CHOPS, Carrillo hits back with haymakers and kicks, but runs into another dropkick! Carrillo bails out again so Ricochet FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp! Ricochet is back on top as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Carrillo has a chinlock. Ricochet fights up, throws body shots, then whips. Carrillo reverses, runs in at the corner but is put on the ropes! GAMANGIRI! Carrillo wobbles, Ricochet goes up, FLYING  SUPER STEINER! Garza coaches up Carrillo while he and Ricochet are both down. Ricochet and Carrillo are in opposite corners, fans rally as Ricochet runs corner to corner to forearm smash! Then whip the other way for an uppercut! Another whip corner to corner, another uppercut! Ricochet keeps moving, QUEBRADA! Fans fire up with Ricochet as he aims from a corner.

Ricochet brings the kneepad down, but now Garza distracts! ricochet DECKS Garza, Carrillo rolls Ricochet! TWO, and Ricochet hits a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Roll through, to BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Carrillo survives but Ricochet keeps cool. Ricochet goes to the corner, climbs up as fans fire up, but Garza drags Carrillo out of the ring! Ricochet says aight, and he SUPER CROSSBODIES! Down goes Garza as he saves Carrillo! Carrillo runs in, but into a TORNADO DDT! Both men are down as the ring count climbs! We’re past 5 of 10, Ricochet drags Carrillo up at 7 and puts in him in. Garza anchors Ricochet’s foot! Carrillo wins!!

Winner: Humberto Carrillo, by count-out (NEW #1 Contender to the Intercontinental Championship)

Garza pops out the other side, celebrating as if Carrillo did that all by himself! But wait, if both Los Lotharios have a win over the champ, who is going for gold?


Backstage interview with Sami Zayn.

Megan brings up the Anything Goes match with Johnny Knoxville, and The Great Liberator says, “Anything Goes. You love to hear it.” There is only one thig blowing Sami’s mind is the way people are talking like Knoxville stands a chance now! If this was a normal match, Knoxville still wouldn’t stand a chance. But Anything Goes? Are you kidding? “The man has no idea what he’s in store for. I can do anything I want out there.” If Sami wants to tap dance on Knoxville’s face while sipping a cappuccino, he could! Anything goes!

And yes, Knoxville might have his pranks and his jokes that work on his braindead Jackass buddies, but this is the Master Strategist. He’s always two steps ahead and has had nothing but time. Knoxville has done nothing but get under Sami’s skin, and yet Sami has come up with all these ways that he can hurt him! And Sami promises that’ll happen. He promises Megan, us, and Knoxville, that at WrestleMania, Anything Goes, Knoxville will experience punishment in a way that has never, ever, EVER been seen in a WWE ring before. Will Sami prove who the real Jackass is on the most stupendous


Austin Theory smacks Pat McAfee outta nowhere!

McAfee immediately gives chase! Theory runs for his life, to Mr. McMahon’s office. Of course the “rat bastard” runs to “daddy.” McAfee shouts at the door, but will he convince Vince that Theory is the instigator who deserves to be punished?


Triple H officially retires from in-ring competition!

The Game has called it Game Over after 27 years as a superstar. He helped hundreds of others get into this business, so surely we all can say, #ThankYouHHH.


Fatal 4 Way: Sasha Banks w/ Naomi VS Rhea Ripley w/ Liv Morgan VS Shayna Baszler w/ Natalya VS Queen Zelina Vega w/ Carmella!

Before the Fatal 4 Way Tag at WrestleMania, and even the 8 Woman Tag on Raw this Monday, we get one half of each team battling for those belts right here in Brooklyn! Will the Boss, the Nightmare, the Queen of Spades or one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions take all the momentum going into the homestretch?

SmackDown returns and the Queens have all made their entrances, not just the Queen of the Ring. That leaves #Liv4Brutality for last but not least! The bell rings and each woman has a corner. Rhea rushes Vega but she bails right out! So Rhea and Sasha both go after Shayna! Natty helps Shayna get away, so Boss and Nightmare circle. Sasha points to the WrestleMania sign, but Rhea shrugs that off. They tie up. Rhea throws Sasha around and whips her, but Sasha ducks and redirects. Things keep going, Rhea hurdles but Sasha leaps to SLAP! Sasha knuckle locks, goes up and up and flying arm-drags!

Rhea ends up in a corner, Shayna returns but is added to the pile! Sasha METEORAS them both, then snapmares Shayna. Rhea shoves Sasha, Sasha comes back to wheelbarrow, and BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Sasha runs but Vega trips her up and drags her out to throw into the desk! Naomi goes after Vega but Mella is after her, as is Natty! Mella gets in, but so does Liv! They brawl, Vega and Rhea brawl, then Shayna and Natty join in, as do Naomi and Sasha! It’s like the tag match is happening now! The ref tries to restore order while SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and it would seem the tag partners have all been EJECTED! Meanwhile, Rhea has Sasha’s legs for a PRISM TRAP! Sasha endures, Shayna runs in to KNEE her down! Rhea dodges Shayna, HEADBUTTS her, then sees Vega getting in. Rhea scoops but Vega tilt-o-whirl headscissors! Cover, TWO! So Vega hurries to cover Shayna, TWO! Vega hurries to cover Sasha, TWO! The Queen of the Ring throws a fit, but Shayna and Sasha are in opposite corners. Vega runs in to METEORA Shayna! And then METEORA for no one as Sasha dodges! Sasha drags Vega down, CROSSFACE!!

Vega endures, Shayna gets back in, to block the tap! And BEND Vega’s arm!! Shayna wants to snipe the tap out but Sasha traps Vega’s other arm! Sasha then drags Shayna into the CROSSFACE! A DOUBLE BACK STATEMENT! But Rhea DROPKICKS it all apart! Rhea slaps some sense into herself and fires herself back up! She drags Shayna up, reels her in, pump handle and- NO! Shayna slips out, for the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! But Sasha DOUBLE BACKSTABBERS! Shayna flounders away before Sasha can get her, and Vega hops on to CODE RED Sasha! Cover, TWO!! Shayna drags Vega out hard!

Sasha is all alone in the ring, but Rhea drags herself back up. Vega throws forearms on Shayna but Shayna hits back. Rhea goes to the apron to CANNONBALL Shayna! Vega avoided disaster to FLYING RANA Rhea into barriers! Vega goes back for Sasha as Brooklyn boos. Vega gloats a bit too much, Sasha drags her back down! BANK STATEMENT CROSSFACE!!! Vega taps, Sasha wins!!

Winner: Sasha Banks, by submission

And it’s BOOS TIME in the Barclays! Naomi returns to celebrate with her teammate, will Team BAD get those belts off Vega & Mella?


Roman Reigns arrives!

His car pulls in, Heyman opens the door while keeping an eye out for Lesnar, and then Heyman says he doesn’t feel so well. Roman says they’ll be fine. “But Brock won’t be.” Will Universal and World Champions clash this close to the biggest match in WrestleMania history?


WWE breaks ground for the National Medal of Honor Museum.

Stephanie McMahon, The Undertaker and Michelle McCool joined former President George W. Bush in sticking the first shovels in the dirt that will build this monument to those who bravely fought for America’s freedoms.


The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal returns!

To honor the late legend, Apollo Crews, Commander Azeez, The Viking Raiders, the Hurt Business, Mad Cap Moss, Akira Tozawa, Drew Gulak, Reggie, Jinder Mahal, Shanky, Robert Roode, R-Truth, Mansoor, Damian Preist and even WWE United States Champion, Finn Balor, are going to battle it out! The last man left will have his name etched onto the plaque and go down in history!

But that’s not all!

With both members of Los Lotharios having earned title opportunities tonight, Ricochet said why wait? He’ll take them BOTH on in a Triple Threat! Will the One and Only be able to defeat both Lethal Lovers and stay WWE Intercontinental Champion?


The Most Stupendous WrestleMania card is sorted out!

On Saturday, it will be: McIntyre VS Corbin; the Raw Women’s Championship, Becky Lynch VS Bianca Belair; the SmackDown Women’s Championship, Charlotte Flair VS Ronda Rousey; and The KO Show with STONE COLD! Will we see a Scottish Warrior slay a hyena? Will both women’s champions stand tall or fall to powerful challengers? And will Kevin Owens be on the one on the other end of a Stunner?

On Sunday, it will be: the grudge match of McAfee VS Theory; the dream match of Edge VS AJ Styles; Anything Goes, Sami Zayn VS Johnny Knoxville; Raw Tag Team Championship Triple Threat, RKBRO VS The Street Profits VS The Alpha Academy; and the Biggest Match of All-Time, Winner Takes All, Championship Unification, World Champion Brock Lesnar VS Universal Champion Roman Reigns! And speaking of…


Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

He raises the Universal Championship for the pyro, then continues on his way as Special Counsel Heyman holds up the belt. They get in the ring, Roman hears Brooklyn cheer and jeer, and then Heyman hands him the mic. “Brooklyyyn! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Brooklyn is still torn, and then Roman continues. “Wise Man.” “Yes, My Tribal Chief?” “Is Brock still in my locker room?” “I don’t know where he is except I know that he’s here in Brooklyn at the same time you are, My Tribal Chief.” Heyman is panicking, he’s afraid. Roman tells him not to be afraid. It is only a bad thing for Brock.

Cuz if Brock is still in the locker room, Roman will go back there and personally put Brock’s head through the wall. But speaking of which, the cameras are live in the suite, and there’s no Beast to be found! Roman isn’t happy about all the broken and spilt items strewn around the suite, but Heyman worries about where Brock went. Fans chant for “SUPLEX CITY!” and that upsets Roman. “I told you idiots before, this ain’t Suplex City! This is the Island of Relevancy!” And it doesn’t look like Brock’s in the room so where is he now? Brock has another camera follow him, and Brock has a PICKAXE!

Brock SMASHES the windows on Roman’s new rental! Roman says he has four Suburbans, this is small money. Wise Man, Roman was right. Lesnar is scared of him! He’s an idiot! Ain’t no weapons allowed at WrestleMania, dummy. Lesnar knows that. So he bangs on the hood with the pickaxe, then chucks the pickaxe at the car. Lesnar storms his way to gorilla position! Roman and Heyman both start to worry now, it’s time to see who is scared of who! Roman’s face starts to give it away! Brock comes through the crowd from behind Roman! Lesnar’s on the desk! Heyman spots him and freaks out! Roman sees Lesnar and Lesnar grins ear to ear.

Lesnar then hops down, grabs a chair, and security rushes to stay between him and Roman! Roman laughs, and he tells fans to quiet down. Lesnar holds up the chair, Roman says he ain’t gonna do nothing. Lesnar jumps into the security and fires off with the chair! Lesnar just cleared out six men, but the Usos are here to help Roman get away! The Bloodlines run away again! They the ones… afraid of Lesnar! Lesnar goes out, SMACKS another security goober, and holds up the bent chair in victory! Fans fire up and Lesnar goes back to grab a new chair! He SMACKS the other guards! He even threatens Michael Cole!

Lesnar gets on the desk, title and chair both raised high! Roman talks to Lesnar from gorilla, “Hey, Brock! At WrestleMania, you ACKNOWLEDGE ME as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion!” Roman’s music plays, but we can see it’s The Beast standing tall tonight. Will Lesnar change Roman’s plans by becoming the REIGNING! DEFENDING! UNDISPUTED! WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World?!

My Thoughts:

A really good SmackDown here, but I do have to point out there were some miscues. I glossed over them in Play By Play, but the ring announcer and graphics team were in disarray with that Ricochet and Los Lotharios stuff. I suppose part of the confusion was that they were going to go back to back, Ricochet VS Garza and Ricochet VS Carrillo, but they gotta make sure they know the order before ever going out there. But with Ricochet ending up in a double header, I figured right away that he’d owe both guys and they’d end up in a Triple Threat. For WrestleMania being the most stupendous, not having an Intercontinental Championship on the card is disappointing.

For that matter, a little sad yet totally expected that the Andre the Giant Battle Royal is again on TV. Furthermore, Finn is in it so it just adds to how Vince has seemingly given up on him. Sure he has the US title, but he has been the heat builder for Theory. He and Priest should’ve just already had a US title match on the card, but it seems like Priest will win the battle royal, get a US title match through it, and then lose that. Also, is the SmackDown Tag Team title match on Saturday? It wasn’t in that last roll call and I can’t remember what they said during the segment with Usos, Nakamura and Boogs. Nakamura VS Jimmy was a really good match, but Nakamura winning makes me think Usos find a way to retain.

Oh, another miscue happened with the New Day and Team Sheamus segment. They let it slip that Woods was with Kofi already, not that Kofi let it affect his announcing Woods’ return for himself. Hell, it completely threw Michael Cole off and it’s like he spaced out on the match swerve. But also, Woods won quick so they’re taking it easy until it’s time for Woods & Kofi VS I would assume Ridge & “Butch.” We got a good interview promo from McIntyre, and a good combination of vignette and promo from Corbin and Moss. It just feels more and more likely McIntyre wins, and hopefully, we’re getting Moss and Corbin breaking up. Moss’ jokes are coming at Corbin’s expense and Corbin isn’t the kind of guy to take that lightly.

Sami had a good promo to hype up Anything Goes, and I really do hope he decides to go somewhat goofy with it to match the Jackass tone. Theory smacking McAfee then running away was a decent segment, and it makes sense Theory would have that sort of spoiled brat attitude where he knows Vince won’t get mad at him, even when he does stuff like this. If anything, Vince is encouraging it. Meanwhile, the Ronda and Charlotte segments continue to be a bit rough because, well, Ronda speaks. She was of course given that promo to recite, but her pacing through it was awful. But that probably won’t affect Ronda’s chances of winning, which are still pretty good.

At least they’re letting the Women’s Tag Division finally look good. Great, even, with this Fatal 4 Way. It doesn’t make up for the disappointingly short matches that led to this, but this is a good sign that the 8 Woman on Monday and the Tag Fatal 4 Way at WrestleMania will be great matches. Still hoping we get new tag champions, but with Naomi & Sasha getting momentum here, hard to know if it’ll be them. And of course, we got great stuff from Lesnar, Roman and Heyman tonight. Lesnar gets to smash more stuff, which he definitely enjoys, and he also gets to beat up security guard jobbers, another thing he seems to enjoy. Roman kinda tips his hand on what he wants to name the unified title, and probably what it’ll become. Lesnar’s having fun but I don’t see him winning in the end.

My Score: 8.3/10

NXT North American Championship: Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Giovanni Vinci!

Another title on the line is that of the North American Championship! Melo says when he shoots, he don’t miss! But when you live lavishly like Giovanni, every day is #ViniVediVinci! Will Melo shoot down the Pride of Italy? Or will it be a campione vittoria to spark the Heatwave?

Julius Creed speaks.

Via twitter, Julius said, “So I went back and watched the 8 Man Tag over and over and over again, but I found what I was searching for. And I’m gonna address who needs to be addressed, but I’m gonna do it in front of the NXT Universe this Tuesday at Heatwave.” As such, he and the rest of Diamond Mine are heading to gorilla in the present. What did he see and who does he plan to confront? We’ll see, after the break.


Von Wagner & Robert Stone speak.

“Mr. Stone” says that two weeks ago, Solo Sikoa got a so-called victory, yet he’s the one on the shelf and Von’s still standing. If you learned anything from that match, it is that Von is a freak of nature! Von can run a 40 yard dash in 4.5 seconds and he can bench press 225 pounds 30 times. If Von wanted to go to an NFL team and get a contract, he could! Von says Stone has heard all the talk, how there is a change in the air. It doesn’t matter if you’re internet famous or popular with the media! “The Game has changed, but the rules remain the same. Anyone smaller or weaker will not survive in my jungle!”


The Diamond Mine heads to the ring!

Julius & Brutus Creed lead Roderick Strong and Damon Kemp out, and they all get a mic. Julius starts by saying, “Less than a year ago, my brother and I got an opportunity of a lifetime: to learn from one of the greatest champions in NXT history, Roderick Strong. And we jumped at that opportunity. And we dedicated every fiber of our being to win the Dusty Cup and to win these NXT Tag Team Championships for Diamond Mine. We’ve been stitched, we’ve been stapled, we’ve wound ourselves up doing cannonballs, all for this right here.

“But recently, it was brought to my attention that someone’s trying to destroy what we’ve built. Someone’s trying to destroy Diamond Mine. And I wanted to use this opportunity to call that person out right now!” Julius looks to the ramp, but then he looks at STRONG! Is Julius kidding?! Strong can’t believe Julius is blaming Strong! Strong founded Diamond Mine and brought in the Creeds! They’re one-of-a-kind athletes with endless potential! That is something he never had. And he stands here looking at them as the NXT Tag Team Champions! Fans chant, “They Don’t Need You!” and Strong says yes they do!

But look at him, Julius. They are one of the best tag teams in all the WWE! Strong would put the Creeds up against the Usos any day of the week! That is how much he believes in them! They’re the future of this place! That’s great, and they can tell the Usos for them, but the Creds aren’t just the future, they’re the now! But Strong can say whatever he wants to their face, because Julius knows Strong will just stab them in the back. Brutus isn’t so sure, though. Julius says he is sure, though. Then Brutus says he has his brother’s back! But Strong says Julius needs to be careful with the next works that come out of his mouth!

Julius says everything he does is calculated. He isn’t gonna play games, he’s gonna just show Strong instead! Roll the tape! Strong was throwing knees, Julius was throwing lariats, but then Tony looked to Strong and they had a moment! Strong hits Julius with the knee, and that is enough for Julius! Tony signaled Strong! Or was Julius imagining it? Strong says they can’t be serious here! Strong doesn’t know, Tony D is a scumbag. Maybe Tony has a tic or he was signaling his own team. But y’know what? Let’s just do it! Let’s lay all the cards on the table! Since MAY, they’ve had something against Strong, and now-

GALLUS ATTACKS!! Wolfgang and the Coffey Brothers are here in the States! They’re beating down Kemp and the Creeds! Fans fire up for Gallus as they glare at Strong, and then Joe hits a GLASGOW SENDOFF! Mark and Wolfgang stomp away on Strong, then they go back to whooping the Creeds! Fans are torn but it seems NXT is now Gallus’ kingdom! And there’s the green light, just as Apollo Crews foresaw! Has Gallus just destroyed the Diamond Mine?

“I’m Quincy Elliot, and I have a confession to make. I’m bringing all of this to NXT. I look to my left, I look to my right, I see people of all different walks of life, and it excites me. And you may be shocked at this, but I ain’t ever struggled with being different. I own it, I work it, because I am it! And everyone in NXT may be superstars, but Quincy Elliot is the Super Diva.” And he’s coming soon to NXT!


Backstage interview with Grayson Waller.

McKenzie isn’t happy about it and Waller notices. Is it because he ruined he Emmy Award Winning interview with Apollo Crews when Waller punked him out? Uh, Apollo was the one who made a challenge while Waller was the one who backed down. Backed down? No, he could’ve dropped Crews right there, but then McKenzie would’ve said it was unfair after the 20 minute war Apollo had with Strong. He can’t win with her! But everyone else is too scared to say it, so Waller will: Apollo Crews is selfish! He’s willing to stab anyone in the back to be the man around here! He might even come for McKenzie’s job!

McKenzie doubts that, but Waller says that while Apollo doesn’t smell as nice, he does have a better small than her. But those were Apollo’s words, not Waller’s. Anyway, next week is the debut of the Grayson Waller Effect, the ONLY honest talk show in WWE history! The tough questions and the hard truth given. Take notes because he’s inviting his very first guess, APOLLO~ Crews! Also, your perfume is cheap, McKenzie.

Fans fire up as Bron carries JD around, then hammerlocks and OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes! And then STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Bron is showing he can do whatever JD can do, and then he clamps onto the arm again. Born hammerlocks and RAMS JD into buckles. Fans rally up and duel as Bron drags JD back up. Bron has the hammerlock, then he whips JD, JD reverses but Bron ducks ‘n’ dodges. Bron staggers but he still comes back to LARIAT JD! Bron tosses JD out hard, then barks at JD as NXT goes picture in picture.

JD scowls as Bron eggs him on. Bron goes out after JD, smacks him off the apron, then brings JD around to smack off the apron again. Fans bark for Bron as he puts JD in, but JD bails out the side.

JD stalks Bron, brings him up but the ring count is 5 of 10. JD puts Bron in at 7, drives elbow after elbow into the shoulders from all sides! The fans are torn but JD lets off so the ref can check Bron. Bron is still in this somehow so JD drags Bron around. JD has a mounted armlock but Bron endures.

JD welcomed that third tackle, but it ended up being his demise! Bron retains the title, but who will- Wait, what?! Is this… It is! TYLER BATE is back in the States! The fans are going nuts for the Big Strong Boy! And he goes right into the ring to look Bron eye to eye! The NXT UK Champion and the NXT Champion, in the same ring for the first time in a long time! Will worlds collide in the near future?

My Thoughts:

This was a very good special for NXT, with great matches all over the card, but Heatwave didn’t really shake anything up. I know I’ve said keeping the status quo isn’t always a bad thing, but in this case, it felt kinda bad. Melo VS Vinci was great, though maybe a little sloppy because they wanted to go as fast as possible. Melo winning was only because of Trick, so that was a bit of a sour taste. But Melo still has so many opponents to face so this is fine. Decent promo from Von & Stone, but I guess Von is downgrading from “Wagner’s World” to “Welcome to Wagner’s Jungle.” I have no idea where Von’s gonna go from here, in a bad way. He’s not championship material, so who’s his next feud?

Great segment out of the Diamond Mine confronting their dysfunction, and I figured it’d be Strong pointed out as the traitor. That was some amazing continuity to have it in the 8 Man Tag that Tony looked to Strong as if to signal something. But then just as Apollo saw, the Diamond Mine all gets attacked. Gallus coming to NXT is great, though I wonder if this means Mark Coffey loses the Heritage Cup to Noam Dar. Gallus also getting a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championships is a nice surprise, but I wonder which two are facing Briggs & Jensen. Assuming Gallus wins, I’d love if it was the Coffey Brothers. But if not, then it can be Mark & Wolfgang again, trying to be two-time winners.

Roxie VS Cora was very good, but I’m a little surprised Cora won. For one, we see the NXT Women’s Championship is still on a Heel. Also, why wasn’t the DDT onto the weapon a disqualification? If that thing was a chair, wouldn’t it have been a DQ? Whatever, Cora’s still been doing good work so it’s not like she doesn’t deserve some success. Tiffany and Wendy have a very good vignette to plug their match. They call it “Lights Out” but don’t expect that to be the same as what AEW does with their “Lights Out” matches. It’ll be great, but only at WWE levels of No DQ. And given there’s no disqualifications, it can probably go either way, though I personally hope Wendy wins.

Actually, a great example of WWE levels of violence versus AEW is the Street Fight between Escobar and Tony we got tonight. It was really more a Street Fight for the sake of allowing Stacks and Legado to get involved without disqualifying the match. It was still great storytelling, but it was more chaos than destruction. Escobar loses because he’s being called-up, and who knows where Legado goes from here since they’re still under Tony. We got a nice promo segment with Indi and KC Squared, and I appreciate that Indi got a love letter from Dexter now that he’s back. But what a surprise that Blair Davenport, who is supposed to be fighting her way to the NXT UK Women’s Championship is here. Maybe Blair beats Indi to send Indi off to Raw?

Good introduction to Quincy Elliot here for the mainstream audience, but those who have been watching Level Up are probably already familiar with Quincy’s work. I’m sure Quincy can go in the ring, so it’s just a matter of how stories go and if Quincy can deliver on his character. Good promo from Waller to call Apollo out, and they’ll have a very good match, but I wonder where they’re going with this. Great match out of Mandy VS Zoey, but I had a feeling that after RawDown got the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament going and how they mentioned Zoey and Lyons are part of that, Zoey wasn’t going to win here. Mandy at least did it in a more clever way than usual. I don’t think anyone else has thought to wear their opponent’s brace and use it against them like that.

And we got a great match out of Bron and JD, but I’m a little surprised Bron won here. I’m also a little surprised how Bron won, where JD just let Bron hit him again. This is not really the Jordan Devlin in NXT UK, he would’ve used that to sucker Bron in, not just let Bron hit him again. But Bron retains, and we got a great surprise, that was then ruined by a massive spoiler. NXT UK isn’t even in the middle of their vacated championship tournament, they’re at the BEGINNING of it, and we see now that Tyler Bate is a two-time UK Champion! That’s awesome for Tyler but this is a big letdown for all of us fans who are still watching NXT UK! The only silver lining to this spoiler is that Worlds Collide might return to give us NXT VS NXT UK, Champions VS Champions.

My Score: 8.2/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/16/22)

Powerhouse gets Dark!



AEW Dark 2

It’s a baker’s dozen for Universal Studios!

AEW Dark continues in Universal Studios, and “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs looks to send a message to Ricky Starks through his opponent tonight!


  • Ari Daivari VS Fuego Del Sol; Daivari wins.
  • Willow Nightingale VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Willow wins.
  • Serpentico w/ Luther VS Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson; Brock wins.
  • Abadon VS Mafiosa; Abadon wins.
  • Angelico VS Baliyan Akki; Angelico wins.
  • Emi Sakura VS Renee Michelle; Sakura wins.
  • Josh Woods VS Cobra; Cobra wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Charlette Renegade w/ Robyn Renegade; Skye wins.
  • Bear Country VS Axel Rico & Victor Iniestra; Bear Country wins.
  • Kayla Rossi w/ Diamond Sheik VS Avery Breaux; Rossi wins.
  • Cezar Bononi w/ The Wingmen VS Marcus Kross; Bononi wins.
  • Rohit Raju VS Invictus Khash; Raju wins.
  • “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Blake Christian; Hobbs wins.


Great to see Abadon back in action, though I’m pretty sure she’s gotten even scarier since she’s been away… A lot of singles match-ups, a lot of easily called match-ups, but that’s par for the course on Dark. A bit surprised they didn’t just team up the Renegade Sisters against Willow & Skye, but maybe those matches are still connected. And while All Heart will lose to Powerhouse, you can beat Blake Christian will get to shine against the bigger Will Hobbs.
