Tony D’Angelo walks around backstage.
He spots the cameras and tells us paizons that he was supposed to face “Run it straight” Xyon, but he’s got a hangnail, or stomach ache, or whatever excuse. Doesn’t matter. Now Tony D’s facing the “silver tongued” Von Wagner. All Tony knows is, after getting through with Mr. Excitement, he’ll be sleeping with the fishes. Escobar knows what that’s like, right? The Don is very confident, but will he enter Wagner’s World?
Diamond Mine meets in the dojo.
Roderick Strong is disappointed. They have to be realistic about this. Recently, they’ve been struggling, and that is something he will not tolerate. This group is too good to crumble like his last group did. Julius and Brutus missed the NXT Tag Team Championships twice, yet they’re sitting around like they’ve made it to the mountaintop! And Ivy, she is dominant but- Brutus speaks up. They didn’t get pinned at Stand & Deliver, and they defeated three of the teams in the Tag Gauntlet. It was those scumbags, Pretty Deadly, who robbed them. Well good for them. But the only thing Strong hears is excuses! If you have to beat four, you gotta do it! Be ready for anyone at any time!
So next week, Strong set up a big time tag team match for next week with former world tag team champions and no strangers to NXT! Okay, who is it? Bivens wants to know, too, since Strong did this without telling him. Oh, it’s a good thing they asked, because they just arrived. It’s the VIKING RAIDERS! Erik & Ivar are ready, will the Creeds be?

Then he SLAPS him! Tony says this is his ring! They circle, go again, Tony waistlocks but can’t lift. Von breaks free and smirks while Tony gets annoyed. Tony and Von go again, Von waistlocks to SLAM Tony down! Von says this is his ring and his world, but Tony resets with him again.

Persia & Indi welcome Roxanne Perez.
They want her to know she was amazing last week in her debut, taking down one of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. She thanks them and it means a lot coming from them. Was she nervous? Oh, so nervous. But then Toxic Attraction come walking in, and Jacy Jayne says it smells like trash in here. It’s Roxie. Mandy says Roxie got lucky, don’t go putting her in the Hall of Fame. And the only reason Roxie won was cuz “Pajama Dork” destroyed the Toxic Lounge. Uh, a win is a win, isn’t it? Okay, honey, Mandy will tell you right now, time to wake up from this dream you’re living. Gigi says it’s a snore.,
Well Roxie will prove it isn’t a fluke! Oh, so now she’s ready? Mandy knows what Roxie’s up to. She wants her chance at THE NXT Women’s Champion. Well she will teach Roxie the difference between someone who is champion and someone who dreams of becoming one. Toxic Attraction heads out, but Persia & Indi assure Roxie that she’s got this. Will Roxie prove to everyone, especially Mandy, that dreams do come true?

Andre Chase & Bodhi Hayward join the student section.
Chase U is ready to watch and take notes of this next match!
Nathan Frazer VS ???
The British Prodigy moves over from NXT UK to see how much higher he can fly. But will he be like Icarus and fly too close to the sun? Or can he maintain altitude and soar towards title contention?
Wait, Frazer’s opponent, Guru Raaj, is attacked by Grayson Waller! Waller takes a mic and gets in the ring to tell the “little English flop” that no one cares about him! If Frazer and his Wonka haircut take one more step, this is gonna get embarrassing. This is Waller’s NXT! He doesn’t need Sanga! He does what he wants, when he wants! Fans chant, “Grayson Sucks!” but Waller sees Chase U mouthing off. He didn’t forget them interrupting! Here’s a joke for ya: Chase U is a scam! Waller went to a Chase U tailgate, and their sorority sisters are more like refrigerators! Look at those chairs struggling!

Backstage interview with Tiffany Stratton.
McKenzie asks her about her win over Sarray, but Stratton says this is her time. She knows everyone saw her win over that “little cheater,” but did anyone see Sarray pull Stratton’s hair three times? What is with that? Waller storms in and grumbles about Frazer embarrassing him. He then apologizes to Stratton for invading her time. But who even is Nathan Frazer? Stratton says Frazer looks homeless, his hair looks like straw, and he has a terrible accent! Waller says he does! Waller can’t stand accents! Uh, Waller has- Stratton says they’re talking. McKenzie is the worst. She IS! Finally, someone with smarts and class!
What Waller was gonna says is that if Frazer were to make his debut, he can do it against Waller. Then Frazer’s career ends before it begins. Stratton loves that. And then OMG, idea! They can get Frazer soap! Good idea! The UK smells. But Stratton smells amazing. Those two go off together, McKenzie gets a headache, but will Waller end up the victim of his own ego?

NXT hears from another Women’s Breakout Tournament entry.
This is Kiana James, and she promises to bring sophistication to the tournament. She calculated the odds, and she says it will work out in her favor. Successful women know their worth and clout, and she has both in spades. In the corporate world and in the ring, she is relentless. So prepare to name her your next Breakout Star.

NXT hears from Wes Lee.
“It was a six month journey to get back to those NXT Tag Team titles. Winning the championships, there is no greater feeling. Losing a championship sucks, but hey. That team, or that guy, was better that day. You’ll get it back. But when a championship is taken from you, where you didn’t lose it but it was taken from you, anger is created.” Wes can’t forget his past, but the future holds a lot of new challenges, new risks, and he can only rely on himself now. He has two ways he can go about it: bitch and complain and say it’s not fair; or he can knuckle up and make the waves he’s destined to. Will Wes Lee be refreshed in this new chapter of his career?
Backstage interview with Tony D’Angelo.
McKenzie asks him about Escobar’s message. Tony tells Escobar that he should’ve smartened up enough already. Tony is the Don, and the Don makes threats, not Escobar! Now Escobar thinks he’s all tough running with a crew. But Tony made some calls, and now HE has a crew. He introduces us to Troy “Two Dimes” Donovan, and Channing Lorenzo, AKA “Stacks.” Tony says Escobar may be a stunad, but even he knows mixing it up with Tony D is bad for your health. So Tony wants an official sit-down meeting with Escobar for Spring Breakin’. They need to do this man to man before Tony takes this into his own hands. Because if he does, Escobar won’t like it.

The “measuring stick” of the NXT Women’s Division tried to hold the new girl down, but they ended up feeling a little karma when Wendy Choo trashed their hangout and Roxie got her first win in NXT. But THE NXT Women’s Champion says the fun stops here and the dream becomes a nightmare. Will the Toxic Goddess ruin Roxie’s run? Or will Mandy only help Roxie level up?
The bell rings and Mandy circles with Roxie. They tie up, fans rally and duel, and Mandy puts Roxie on ropes. The ref counts, Mandy lets off, but then she picks Roxie up to put her on the top rope. Mandy says Roxie’s so cute, then she yanks Roxie down just to shove her down! Roxie storms up on Mandy but Mandy uses ropes as defense. They reset, Roxie shoots in and waistlocks. Mandy pries free, wrenches, wristlocks, then YANKS the arm. Mandy wristlocks more, Roxie rolls, but Mandy wrenches again. Mandy wrangles Roxie to the mat, but Roxie kips up. Mandy wrenches again, Roxie rolls again, and then Roxie goes up to victory roll! TWO!

Mandy grabs Roxie’s arm but Roxie drops to victory roll! TWO, and Roxie hurries to ghost pin! TWO, Mandy knees Roxie low. Mandy talks trash to Roxie’s face, pokes her in the head, but Roxie BITSE that finger! The ref counts, Roxie lets off, and Mandy says that Roxie chipped her nail! Roxie rolls Mandy up, TWO! Roxie runs in but into a kick! Mandy tosses Roxie out of the ring! Mandy then goes out after Roxie to bring her up.
Roxie elbows back, grabs the hand, and brings it to the steel steps. Roxie SLAMS that hand on the steel, then shrugs and slips into the ring. Mandy says her finger is damaged, but it’s really just the nail again. Toxic Attraction fans Mandy and checks her nails while NXT goes to picture in picture.
Roxie waits on Mandy and the ring count climbs. Mandy wants the ref to check her finger, but then Roxie grabs that hand to KICK it! Gigi & Jacy complain but the ring count restarts. Mandy gets up and seethes as she hurries back in, Roxie taunts Mandy, dodges Mandy, then bails out. Mandy chases Roxie around and back in, and Roxie shrugs again before she handsprings to dodge! Leg sweep and a rolling senton, then Roxie waves at Mandy. Roxie brings Mandy up but Mandy ROCKS her with a right! Mandy fires off furious fists at the ropes but the ref backs her off. Mandy soaks up the heat, confident in herself again.
Mandy whips, Roxie reverses and hops on for a GUILLOTINE! Mandy endures, stays up, grabs the ropes, and Roxie lets go. Roxie then brings Mandy around to wrangle her, stand on the bad hand, and then giggle. Roxie then STOMPS the hand! Mandy clutches her fingers and Roxie brings her up again. Roxie wrenches and jumps back on for another GUILLOTINE! Mandy endures all over again, and she RAMS Roxie into buckles! Mandy is free, and she reels Roxie in for a SPINEBUSTER! Mandy catches her breath while Roxie crawls to ropes. NXT returns to single picture as Roxie fires forearms on Mandy!
Roxie wrenches, ROCKS Mandy, then runs. Mandy back drops Roxie away! Fans rally, Mandy hurries to cover, TWO! Mandy is frustrated and she stalks Roxie. Fans rally and duel, Mandy drags Roxie up to whip her into the corner hard! Roxie bounces off buckles, Mandy drags her back up and scoops for a BACKBREAKER!

NXT hears from another Women’s Breakout Tournament entry.
This is Sloane Jacobs, and though she is only 19 years old, don’t think of her as an underdog. She learned to fight growing up with two sisters, and is going to make this a grueling series of matches. She dreams big, and wants to become the youngest women’s champion in NXT history. And the first step is winning this tournament.
Joe Gacy speaks.
Surrounded by his druids, he says, “Let’s go change the world.” Gacy and his insane smile head to gorilla, what will he have to say this close to NXT Spring Breakin’?
NXT returns and Gacy heads to the ring.
Fans boo Gacy as he gets the mic to say, “On our journey to change and embrace the world, we’ve come so far. So many triumphs. Barriers broken for people that have been discriminated against because of their weight. NXT is the clay that I have slowly been molding over the last six months. Clay of acceptance. Acceptance of everyone and anyone.” The druids surround the ring, and Gacy says they have made great strides. “But the mission isn’t quite accomplished.” Gacy doesn’t think everyone buys in to his way of life. Gacy asks why. “It’s time to step up and separate from the masses of people who wanna keep living in the past! Commit to the future! Commit to my vision!”
You best do it willingly. Because after Spring Berakin’, there will be no choice. Bron Breakker has not told us anything about his injuries, and that is because Gacy knows Bron is not cleared to compete and defend the NXT Championship after Gacy shoved him off the perch. After Bron’s fall from grace, Gacy will become NXT Champion, and he shall harden the clay into the vision Gacy sees! Wait, who is that coming down to the ring? It’s RICK STEINER! WWE Hall of Famer and Bron’s father is here, and he goes right past the druids to get in the ring with Gacy! Rick says Gacy has this all wrong. Bron IS cleared, and he will defend the title next week.
Gacy tells Mr. Steiner that he picked a great time to come back. Or did he pick the worst possible time? The druids start creeping in all around the ring! But here comes BRON! The druids go into defense mode as Bron storms down the ramp! He CLOBBERS one after the other, then gets right in to DECK the rest! Gacy keeps hiding behind one, but then dodges! Bron CLOBBERS that druid, only for Gacy to HANDSPRING LARIAT! Bron is down, the druids hold Rick back, and then Gacy has them pass the NXT Championship up to him from the ramp. Gacy holds the belt up over Bron, but will he succeed in becoming the sculptor of NXT?
A great NXT here as the go-home to Spring Breakin’. I keep wanting to type spell it “Breakkin” since we’re getting Breakker VS Gacy. Them closing the show was a logical choice because that’s for THE title, but it wasn’t all that much of a segment. Gacy was supposed to tell us Bron’s status but he kinda buried the lead behind his speech about molding NXT to his vision. Bron makes his return because of course he was never really hurt, but also his character now gets that Face super healing like we’ve seen in John Cena and others before. Bron still gets knocked down so that Gacy can stand tall, obviously indicating Bron is winning.
Good opening match out of Lyons VS Lash, though not sure the full body pan in Lyons’ entrance was needed. Naturally, Lyons won given Lash gave her that boot backstage a couple weeks ago. And then Natty goes after Lyons because of what Lyons said last week, and then Cora responds in kind. A tag match for Spring Breakkin’ is a nice surprise, and it’ll definitely keep the math even for Natty and Cora before they have their singles match down the line. I would think Natty and Lash win to put the pressure on Cora as the “future of NXT.”
Speaking of, good to know NXT is finally getting a Women’s Breakout Tournament, and we got good promos from three entries. Fun fact: Arianna Grace is Bianca Carelli, Santino Marella’s daughter. She will surely have a very good showing, but it is still up in the air on who wins the whole tournament since we only know four entries. I feel like Gigi Dolin is still taking it easy ring wise since Roxanne faced Mandy here tonight. It felt like Mandy stumbled on her promo just a little, but she and Roxanne had a very good main event match. Naturally, THE NXT Women’s Champion wasn’t going to lose, and Roxanne gets her first loss out of the way. Wendy’s new prank this week was fun, I hope we at least get Roxie & Wendy VS Gigi & Jacy for the tag titles.
Tony D’Angelo had a good promo to let us know about plans changing. And at the same time, Von needed someone else to face since Kushida left and they kayfabed Jiro being injured. It worked as a way to have the story of Tony VS Legado escalate, and we also got a good transition to Von feuding with Briggs & Brooks since it seems Von was the one who attacked Brooks because he was ogling Sophia. The mixed handicap match was pretty good but I feel like we still need Lopez VS Fallon 1v1 in like No Disqualifications to finish that feud off.
Legado has a good group promo, and Tony introducing his own faction is good. That sit-down will of course turn into a brawl, then we’ll get a Six Man of Legado VS Tony D, Troy Two Dimes and “Stacks.” Waller “ruining” Frazer’s debut was quite the twist. And it seems they’re circling back to him and Stratton having a thing, as they took LA Knight’s car that one time when Stratton didn’t have a face. Frazer VS Waller is going to be really good for Spring Breakin’, and I almost want a Mixed Tag of Frazer & Sarray VS Waller & Stratton.
We got a really good tag match out of KC Squared VS Leon & Feroz, but it’s gonna take me another minute to get used to “Katana Chance.” WWE seems to just want to replace all the real-life and/or pre-WWE names. At least they found a name that’s still “KC.” KC Squared really should get around to the tag titles again, or just move up to RawDown so that there are more teams up there. Kay Lee Ray becoming Alba Fyre really only makes me wonder if they’re gonna call her finisher “The Fyre Bomb” or just default to Gory Bomb.
Strong becoming the tyrant of Diamond Mine is only going to ensure this group crumbles, which is a bit of a shame. But him having the Viking Raiders return to NXT was quite the surprise. Fans loved having them back, for one. Malik & Enofe had a great promo segment, and they had a really good showing against Erik & Ivar, but of course the Viking Raiders win. Julius & Brutus VS Erik & Ivar is going to be great, and Creeds winning is definitely a nod that they’ll get those tag titles. Wes Lee had a great vignette and promo, and you can bet that he’ll move into the North American Championship scene soon enough.
We got a really fun match out of Solo VS Trick, but I really wish they would’ve made this how Solo earns his way into the North American title match. There would’ve been more drama and tension, at least. But Solo of course wins to build momentum, but also he might just be in the match to take the pin. That in itself is a shame, but it could be the way Melo takes the title back without taking it from Grimes. Then Melo and Grimes feud towards whatever TakeOver we’re getting that coincides with SummerSlam this year. Oh, right, they’re not TakeOver anymore. Well, I guess that event will have to have a special name like Heat Wave or Summer Fling.
My Score: 8.5/10

It’s the Night of Champions Kickoff Show!
Join Kayla Braxton, Matt Camp and Peter Rosenberg in discussing, analyzing and predicting all the action here tonight/today!
Backstage interview with Cody Rhodes.
Byron Saxton catches The American Nightmare as he arrives, and he asks about the condition of his arm, and about any last thoughts before the match with Brock Lesnar. Cody says cat’s out of the bag via the press conference the other day. There is a stress fracture, but that doesn’t change his spirits. Cody beat Brock Lesnar in under ten minutes last time. So this doesn’t change his spirits, this only changes the game plan. Cody is still going to have a broken arm tomorrow, but Lesnar is gonna wake up tomorrow being 0-2. Cody can live with this broken arm. Can Lesnar live with another loss? Cody puts it concisely himself, but will his spirit be what suffers next?
On this global stage…
“In a triple main event… Who will be victorious? Who will leave as a champion?” HHH says, “A champion is always on. It is a 24/7, 365 state of mind. Being a champion is more than a way of life. It is your life. And man, can it change your life. With the eyes of the world watching, history calls. And the answer will be deafening. In this kingdom, this is what it’s all about. Are you ready? I said, ARE, YOU, READY!? This… is a Night of Champions!”

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn talk backstage.
They’re feeling good. Being here is crazy. Everything since WrestleMania! Even WrestleMania was so much more than they ever expected. Winning these tag titles together, what a run. Even if it ended tonight- Wait, whoa, why would it end? It won’t, but Sami wants to “acknowledge” the fact Roman Reigns is celebrating 1000 days as Universal Champion and he wants these titles. Somehow, he finds a way. Roman’s screwed them both over before. Kevin sees that. But that’s the only thing he “acknowledges.” Here is something for Roman to “acknowledge”: Kevin & Sami won these off The Usos, a greater tag team than Roman & Solo will ever be.
But here’s another thing: Kevin is sick of hearing about Roman’s 1000 days! Roman’s had his day, he has had 1000 of them! Today is THEIR day! Kevin didn’t come all this wat just to lose! No, today is THEIR day! Today, Solo loses! Today, Roman loses! Yeah? Yeah?! YEAH! Sami & Kevin are ready, will they make sure Roman’s 1000 days with his two titles is all he gets?

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn VS Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa w/ Paul Heyman!
Speaking of stories, it seems one story that has yet to end is the drama of the Prizefighter, the Great Liberator and The Bloodline. Kevin & Sami have all but broken up the Tribal Chief’s table, will this be the last straw? Or will Roman celebrate 1000 years as Universal Champion by becoming THE Undisputed Champion of WWE?
As always, Roman raises the belts for the pyro. The Bloodline continues down the ramp and into the ring, for Roman to raise the belts again for more pyro. Then Kevin and Sami make their entrances, Sami in a formal white robe. The fans sing Sami’s song as he and Kevin go down to the ring, and the champs are fired up!

Undisputed! WWE! Universal! Heavyweight! Champion! ROMAN! REIGNS!!”
Heyman gives the mic back and says that’s how it is done. But Sami takes the mic now, and he says in Arabian that we should all hold on a second. Sami says that tonight, in this ring, it is the WWE Tag Team Champions, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn! The fans are thunderous, the tag belts are raised, and we see what it truly takes to be tag team champions!
The teams sort out and as fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~” for Sami, Kevin starts against Roman. Fans fire up as the bell rings and the fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~” again. Roman gets annoyed, and Kevin realizes who should really start this match. Sami offers the hand, and Kevin tags him in! Roman smirks and nods as fans are thunderous for “SAMI! SAMI!” Roman gets annoyed as it keeps going, and he circles with Sami. Roman says no one would know who Sami is without him! Sami begs to differ, given the “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~!” returns. Roman gets annoyed and tags out to Solo, which fans boo.
Solo and Roman circle now while Roman cools off outside. Roman says he should’ve never let Sami into the Bloodline! The fans keep chanting for Sami, Roman yells at them, and the fans boo. Roman then tells Solo to take Sami out. Solo and Sami tie up, are in a deadlock, but Solo throws Sami away! Solo eggs Sami on, fans boo, and Sami comes back. They circle again, the fans are still thunderous, and the tension builds. The two tie up, Solo powers Sami to a corner, and the ref counts. Solo lets off, swings, but Sami dodges to CHOP!

Jey can’t believe what Jimmy’s done, but Jimmy says that’s what Roman gets! Roman himself is in disbelief over what just happened. Is this the last day The Bloodline is a faction? As for Kevin & Sami, could this be just the beginning of their own historic reign?
What an awesome Night of Champions! I can only nitpick using the phrasing of “triple main event” when, for one, only a match that closes the show is the main event. And even then, they didn’t have all three matches at the end to try and say they all closed the show. But WWE is gonna use phrasing however they want because they can. But given that, the World Heavyweight Championship opening was a surprise. I already said in the build to this that it was a given Rollins was going to win since it was Styles going against him and Styles is anchored to SmackDown with the OC. But I also said it was going to be an awesome match, which it was. Rollins has any number of possibilities for a first challenger, even with MITB coming and grabbing up a few people into the ladder match.
And great move to have Becky VS Trish follow, too, that was great stuff. Zoey Stark getting involved was a surprise I could not have called, but what a great spot for her to get in on. The feud with Candice LeRae and Nikki Cross just wasn’t working right, so Stark moving up into a big time story like this is great. I already sense a tag match of Trish & Zoey VS Becky and a returning Lita for an even bigger battle of generations. It also is a way to keep Becky out of the MITB picture, she’s above titles now.
And speaking of, great women’s title matches. I did not see either finish coming, and they were both rather creative. Rhea getting the jump on Natty thanks to Dom should’ve been a given, and Rhea beating Natty was itself a given, but I didn’t think it’d end up a squash. And then Bianca VS Asuka was great stuff, and it was also clear that the mist was gonna come into play. But great creativity for Asuka to miss with the spit attack to then go with mist soaked hands. Asuka winning was a surprise in itself, so this was a great way to do it that keeps Bianca strong and adds to Asuka’s Heel power. As I theorized on last night’s SmackDown, I’m thinking the Women’s MITB will factor into putting the right titles on the right shows, and I’d love for interactions between Rhea and this new sinister Asuka.
Gunther VS Ali was great stuff, and naturally the fans were on Ali’s side. But given the teasing of Riddle VS Gunther even with Ali being the winner of the battle royal, Ali was not going to get this title off Gunther. But it was a great match from Ali, so I hope this leads to something good for him, perhaps the MITB ladder match. Great stuff out of Cody VS Lesnar, and very clever that Cody would use his cast as a legal weapon in the match. But at the same time, Cody can’t be so overpowered, so passing out to the Kimura was the logical finish. Cody VS Lesnar Round 3 could easily be at MITB, but given Cody’s “broken” arm and Lesnar preferring the biggest paychecks possible, perhaps they save this for SummerSlam in Detroit, not MITB in London.
And of course, the one true main event was the tag title match because it also has the Bloodline story involved. I loved everything about that segment, but especially The Usos’ part to play. They took things into their own hands again even though Roman didn’t want them to, and then Jimmy finally snapped, Superkick’d Roman and we all cheered! Jimmy saying this is what they should’ve done all along was also a great detail, because it calls back to almost three years ago when Roman used Jimmy against Jey to make them both fall in line. This Bloodline Civil War stuff is going to be great, SmackDown next Friday is going to be huge.
My Score: 8.9/10

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS La Faccion Ingobernable!
Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass won the Tres de Mayo Trios Battle Royal over three weeks ago and are still building momentum in the Trios Division. But will they be able to bring down Rush, Dralistico & Preston Vance? Or will LFI make Sin City tranquilo?
But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “Acclaimed in the house, we the nicest ever. This is not a game, this is not Fight Forever. Rush, you’re losing your cred. How you gonna fight us with all your pubes on your head? Wait, is this guy from Tijuana, bro? He looks like the dominatrix at the donkey show! We’ll make your crew say adios. Acclaimed here to win this match mas rapido!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “LAAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does~! But will this be muy bien for The Acclaimed? Or muy malo?
The trios sort out and fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Bowens starts against Dralistico and the two circle. Dralistico copies the conducting of the choir, and even offers the scissor finger. Bowens goes to accept but Dralistico kicks low! Dralistoco CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! But Bowens turns things around to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! Dralistico CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Bowens whips, Dralistico goes up and over and then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! Bowens comes back with a mule kick, front kick, and KOTARO KRUSHER! Fans fire up because “EVERYONE Loves The Acclaimed!”
But Dralistico gets away and tags in Perro Peligroso. Bowens tags in Caster, and The Dangerous Dog circles with Platinum Max. They tie up, Vance headlocks, and Caster powers up and out. Vance runs Caster over, mocks the scissors, then runs. Caster drops, hurdles, then arm-drags! Caster has Vance’s arm and thrusts with it! Then Caster clamps the armlock, but Vance fights up to ROCK him with a forearm! Vance whips, Caster ducks ‘n’ dodges, and leaps, but into Vance’s arms! Vance FALL AWAY SLAMS Caster towards his corner! Billy tags in and fans fire up! Billy is a big man, just like Vance.
Billy takes off the brand new “I ♥ 2 Scissor” shirt, and shows off the DADDY ABS! Billy raises the hands, calling for a test of strength. Vance goes to oblige, but then Billy tells him “SUCK IT!” Fans fire up but Vance CHOPS Billy! Vance tells Billy to “SUCK IT!” then runs, but into a scoop! Billy carries Vance around, to FALL AWAY SLAM! What Vance can do, Billy can do better! Billy scoops and SLAMS Vance, tags Bowens in, but then Rush rushes in to ROCK Billy! Dralistico attacks Bowens and Caster, the LFI turn things around as they throw out Billy and Bowens. Billy is sent into the steps! Bowens and Caster are sent into railing!
Fans rally for The Acclaimed but the LFI all stomp away on Caster in the ring. The LFI mock the scissors, and then just flip off Caster before raising the LFI fists. Fans boo while Rampage goes picture in picture.
The LFI mug Caster more, then Rush CHOPS him in a corner. Dralistico CHOPS Caster, and then Vance stands Caster back up to CHOP him, too! LFI double whip Caster corner to corner, Dralistico runs in to SPLASH, and then Vance runs in to clothesline! Rush powers up, runs, and jumps just to BOOT Caster! Rush rolls back to tranquilo while the rest of LFI raise the fists. Fans rally for The Acclaimed while Vance bumps Caster off buckles. Vance then runs to BOOT Bowens! Rush drags Caster out, throws body shots, and then he and Dralistico put Caster back in for Vance. Vance then sends Caster back out to them, to send into railing!
Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but then LFI brawls with The Acclaimed on the outside! Rampage returns to single picture as fans chant “REF YOU SUCK!” Billy is sent into railing, and Dralistico dumps Bowens over into the front row! Vance keeps on Caster while Dralistico HEADBUTTS Bowens while he’s sitting on a fan’s lap! The fans help Bowens get up, Vance drags Caster up and tags in Dralistico. Dralistico CHOPS, then throws forearm after forearm. Dralistico goes side to side for a SUPERKICK! Dralistico lounges up top and the fans boo. Dralistico drags Caster up to whip but Caster blocks!
Dralistico CHOPS Caster, has him in an open corner, and he whips Caster corner to corner again. Caster dodges the splash! Dralistico rushes back after Caster, Caster dodges, and they DOUBLE LARIAT! Both men are down, they crawl for their teams, hot tags to Vance and Billy! Daddy Ass rallies on LFI! He SPLASHES Vance in a corner, brings him out, kicks low and, well, “SUCK IT!” FAMOUSER!! Cover, but Jose helps with the ropebreak! Fans boo, they know the truth! Jose mocks the scissor fingers while celebrating his antics. But Caster tosses Jose in! Billy drags Jose up while Caster RAMS Dralistico into railing!
Bowens RAMS Rush into railing on the other side, then goes to the corner. Billy scoop SLAMS Jose into position! Bowens is up top, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Jose flounders out of the ring, and the fans fire up as The Acclaimed- NO, Rush & Dralistico drag Caster & Bowens out of the ring! Billy swings on Vance but he dodges, to DISCUS LARIAT!! Cover, Caster breaks it! Caster says Billy but Rush CLOBBERS Caster! Billy is in the corner, Rush stomps him! Fans boo, but El Toro Blanco says “When you mess with the bull,” only to turn around into Bowens’ Five Tool Strike Fest! SUPERKICK!!
Rush bails out, but Dralistico springboards in, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Dralistico drags Bowens up, but Bowens wrenches and clinches, THE ARRIVAL! Caster hurries, he tags in off Billy and climbs up! MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!!
Winners: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn, by pinfall
A fast ‘n’ furious battle, and Daddy Ass and his boys make it through! Bowens gets the mic to say, “How we doin’ tonight, Vegas?” Fans cheer, they’re doing great! “The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass, we feel the exact same way, because we’ve been running through this Trios Division all month long! And seeing as though we are in Vegas, I think we should do some gambling. What do you say?” Bowens says that if Vegas is gonna gamble, maybe Sunday night, remember this: The House always wins, but never bet on Black! Because EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED! Bowens, Caster & Billy call out Malakai, Brody & Buddy, will the scissors cut down the House of Black?
Six Man Tag: Ethan Page & The Gunns VS ???
From one trios match to another, All Ego & The Ass Boys are taking on The Hardy Party at Double or Nothing, with Ethan’s contract on the line! Will Ethan, Austin & Colten be rolling into Sunday to exact revenge on Matt & Jeff?
The trios sort out, Austin starts against ??? and the two circle. Ethan & Colten distract ???, and Austin CLOBBERS him! Austin swaggers, then tags in Colten. Colten drags ??? up, puts him in the corner and stomps away on him! The ref counts, Colten lets off to tell her to shut up! Tag to Austin, Austin stomps a mudhole now, but the ref counts again. Austin lets off and shouts, then tags Colten back in. The Gunns whip, body shot, knee lift, and then LARIAT! Fans boo but the Gunns soak it up. Colten says if Ethan wants some, here he goes. Tag to Ethan and he soaks up the heat while trotting around ???
Ethan stomps ??? then brings him up, only to get a JAWBREAKER! Hot tag to 222! The Gunns jump in but Austin misses, Colten gets a BOOT, and then Austin gets a haymaker! 222 throws more heavy hands, but then Ethan BOOTS him down! Fans boo as Ethan looms over 222 and shouts, “Are you kidding me?” The Gunns take care of ??? and 333 by throwing them into the railing! Ethan puts 222 up, crosses the arms, ICONOCLASM! And then he and the Gunns get 222 up, feed to the 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, Ethan & The Gunns win!
Winners: Ethan Page & The Gunns, by pinfall
Ethan isn’t done, either, he wants a mic! A mic is given, and Ethan says he wants to talk to the “bozos” in Vegas. “Shut up, you basic ass civilians.” Ethan doesn’t care if anyone here was watching, he wants The Hardy Boyz to have been watching. Because if so, they just saw what a REAL three man crew, a REAL trio, can do! A REAL team! And on Sunday, guess we won’t find out what the Hardy Party can do because these three took out Kassidy! FOR GOOD! So it is clearly going to be 3v2 now. But wait, here come the Hardy Boys! Fans fire up as Matt & Jeff are on stage, and Jeff has a mic of his own!
Jeff says, “The Ass Boys are looking good out here on Rampage with a boost of ego. This Sunday, the Egos will be DELETED, compliments of us.” Matt tells Ethan that his contract and his ass will belong to Matt now! If they have to fight 3v2, they’re not afraid to. Because to them, fear is only a four letter word. Wait, Kassidy is here with a neck brace? Ethan mocks them to come on down, and Austin mocks the moaning and squealing. Kassidy says unfortunately, the doctor did not clear him to compete. However… He found a replacement. It’s HOOK!! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil did help Hardy Party in the Firm Deletion, so he has returned to help them again!
Fans fire up as Hook follows the Hardy Boys to the ring, and that sends Ethan & The Gunns running! Will the remnants of The Firm be torn down once and for all now that Kassidy has #SentHook?
Backstage interview with Naturally Limitless.
Lexi Nair is with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes, and we all know things have been heating up between them and the now Mogul Embassy. It has just been announced that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are both in the Blackjack Battle Royal, as are they. What does that mean for them? Imagine that, huh? Swerve and Cage in a battle royal. So after Keith & Dustin eliminate them, because this is all for the International Championship, then Keith & Dustin can just eliminate everyone else and then make a decision on who wins it all. Dustin is confident he and Keith can come to an agreement.
But Swerve and Cage, you know it’s heated. You know it’s coming. Be ready. Keith adds that if the Embassy is in this, then he can’t wait! Keith heads out, and Dustin hopes Swerve saw that. Will nothing stop Keith & Dustin settling things with Swerve’s House this Sunday?
Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!
While The Doctor & The Full Metal Warrior couldn’t put away the Outcasts, they are sticking together in this ongoing battle of AEW Homegrowns and everyone else. Will these former AEW Women’s World Champions prove they are still a formidable team? Or will the Vicious Vixens be a major problem for them?
The teams sort out, Shida starts against Nyla as no strangers to each other. They circle, and then Nyla kicks low and CLUBS Shida on the back! Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, then tags in Marina. The Vixens double whip, but Shida ducks the double ax handles to shove Marina into Nyla, and then shove them both into a corner! Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE them both down! Shida then snap suplexes Marina onto Nyla! Fans fire up with Shida and she points to Britt. Fans fire up as Shida tags in Britt! Britt fires off on Marina, but Marina shoves her back. Britt dodges, comes back, SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO!
Britt keeps on Marina with hammering elbows, then she wraps on a chinlock. Britt brings Marina up but Marina blocks the suplex. Britt powers up and still suplexes Marina up and over! Cover, TWO! Britt brings Marin up, ROCKS her, and then whips her to ropes. Marina reverses to CHOP and BOOT Britt down! Marina scowls, storms up on Britt, and tags in Nyla. The Vixens mug Britt in the corner, and Nyla CHOKES Britt on the ropes! Nyla laughs right into the corner camera before she lets go at 4. Fans boo as Nyla stands on Britt and Rampage goes picture in picture.
Nyla lets off as the ref counts, and then Nyla drags Britt up. Nyla scoops Britt to SLAM her down, then she soaks up the heat. Nyla stomps Britt, drags her up, and scoops to SLAM her again! Nyla mocks the “D! M! D!” and then stalks Britt to scoop her again. Britt slips off, but Nyla choke grips her for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Marina and Shida shout at each other, and Nyla brings Britt up to CLUB her on the back. Nyla bumps Britt off buckles, tags Marina, and Marina fires off body shots! Marina kicks Britt’s legs out, then tags Nyla back in. The Vixens drag Britt up to whip her hard into the corner!
Marina whips Nyla in to SPLASH! And then Nyla feeds Britt to Marina’s BOOT! Marina taunts Shida, clamps onto Britt with an armlock, and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, reaches out, throws slapping hands on Marina, but then Marina whips Britt back into the corner! Nyla tags back in, the Vixens mug Britt more, and Nyla RAMS Britt in the corner! And again! And again! Nyla sits Britt down, digs her boot in, and mockingly counts along with the ref before letting off at 4. Nyla snapmares, clamps claws onto Britt’s shoulders, and Rampage goes to break.
Rampage returns and the Vixens double whip Britt into their corner again! Marina sends Nyla in but Britt avoids the splash! Marina hurries after Britt, misses, and she stubs a toe on the ropes! Gotta be careful going barefoot! Hot tag to Shida! Shida dodges Marina, ENZIGURIS her down, then rolls to SHOTEI Nyla! Marina throws a forearm, but Shida throws a flurry in return! Fans fire up with Shida as she just hammers away on Marina! Marina staggers around, swings, but Shida DECKS her! Shida puts Marina in a corner, climbs up, and Shida rains down more fists! The fans count along and Shida gets all the way to TEN!
Shida roars, brings Marina out with a kick, and then adjusts up top to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Shida tags Britt then runs to ROCK Nyla! Britt brings Marina up, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, but Nyla scoop SLAMS Shida onto it! Nyla is mad and she hoists Britt up. Nyla hangs Britt out to dry, then goes to the corner! Nyla climbs, aims, but Shida saves her from the knee! Nyla runs back in, but Shida & Britt dump her out hard! And then a METEORA to the floor wipes the Native Beast out! Britt has a glove, she spells it out, “D! M! D!” But Marina CHOPS, KICKS and KICKS! But Britt dodges to SUPERKICK!
Britt hurries to ripcord and- NO, Marina gets around to ripcord and SAYANAGI! Cover, TWO into a ghost pin! TWO into the RINGS OF SATURN! Shida is in, KATANA puts Marina into the LOCK JAW!! Marina is OUT, the ref calls it! Britt & Shida win!
Winners: Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida, by submission
A hard fought victory for the Doctor and the Warrior! But wait, The Outcasts are on the tron! And they’re all shaking their heads but smirking as they stand over JAMIE HAYTER! They went after her backstage! Shida & Britt hurry to the back but the damage has been done! Will Hayter be able to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship after this?
Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.
“Tonight, ahead of the Blackjack Battle Royal, Lee Moriarty & Big Bill take on Best Friends. Let’s see which team comes out on top. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor have the hot hand going into the International Championship match? Or will #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper make bust them already?
Best Friends VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey!
As Best Friends make their entrance, we see their best amigos, Bandido, Komander and even The Lucha Brothers all watching from the front row. They’re all going to be in the battle royal, too, and well, look at that. It would seem The Superbad Squad and the Varsity Athletes had the same idea. They’re all together in one section watching this in person, too.
Anyway, the teams sort out and Moriarty starts against Chuck. They circle, Chuck does some drop steps, and then the two tie up. Chuck waistlocks, wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Moriarty works on the escape, but Chuck cranks the wrist. Moriarty stomps a leg, rolls and kips up to then arm-drag free. Chuck backs off and Moriarty does his dance. Fans boo but Bill cheers. Trent tags in and he circles with Moriarty. They tie up, Moriarty gets around to a waistlock but Trent switches. Moriarty switches back, Trent switches again, but Moriarty elbows free and hits a headlock takeover.
Trent headscissors, Moriarty kips free and hits another headlock takeover. Trent headscissors again, Moriarty kips free again, and fans cheer the standoff. Moriarty does his dance and fans boo again. Moriarty claps at Trent, but Trent offers a handshake. Moriarty accepts, but he sees the cheap shot coming! Trent laughs it off, but Moriarty rakes the eyes! Moriarty CHOPS Trent to ropes, whips him, but Trent reverses. Chuck hits Moriarty, but Moriarty DECKS him! But then Trent CLOBBERS Moriarty! Fans fire up with Trent and he brings Moriarty up. Trent CHOPS Moriarty down, then tags Chuck.
Best Friends double whip Moriarty to a corner, then Trent sends Chuck in to clothesline! Trent runs in to ELBOW! Trent brings Moriarty out, Best Friends double suplex! They both flex on Morrissey, then SLAM Moriarty down! Fans cheer but Big Bill runs in! He breaks the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT the Best Friends! Bill clotheslines Chuck out, then he whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up and out and Bill paces. Best Friends are down while Rampage goes picture in picture.
Bill goes out to stomp Trent around, then stalks Trent. Bill rains down fists on Trent, but Chuck is after Moriarty! Chuck whips but Moriarty reverses to send Chuck into railing! Bill drags Trent up, ROCKS him, and Moriarty puts Chuck in the ring. Moriarty drags Chuck up, UPPERCUTS him, and then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and he distracts the ref so Bill can BOOT Chuck down! Moriarty covers, TWO! Moriarty drags Chuck up, the Varsity Athletes and Superbad Squad aren’t impressed with any of this, but Bill tags in. Bill throws body shots, the Lucha Brothers cheer Chuck on.
Bill digs his boot in, but steps off as the ref counts, and Moriarty CHOKES Chuck now! Trent protests but Moriarty scurries away. Bill soaks up the heat from Vegas, then he DECKS Chuck! Bill drags Chuck up, ROCKS him again, then tags in Moriarty. They mug Chuck, stomp away on him, and the ref counts. Moriarty lets off and roars, then goes back to Chuck. Moriarty drags Chuck up to wrench an arm into an ELBOW BREAKER! Moriarty snapmares Chuck, wraps him up, but Chuck fights the straitjacket. Moriarty turns Chuck over and hammerlocks an arm, to then SNAP LOCK it!
Chuck endures, even as Moriarty bridges over! Moriarty then goes back around to SNAP LOCK the arm again! Chuck endures, Moriarty bridges again, and then SNAP LOCKS a third time! Chuck manages to sit up, he throws some elbows, and he gets free! Only for Moriarty to DECK Trent with a cheap shot! Moriarty CLUBS Chuck, brings him around and tosses him out! The ref is distracted with Moriarty and Bill goes over to run at Chuck. But Chuck dodges, and the big boot from Big Bill gets stuck on the railing! That’s not good for Little Willie! Rampage returns to single picture and Moriarty rushes out! Chuck dodges and slides in, to hot tag Trent!
Fans fire up as Trent gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Moriarty! And then GERMAN SUPLEX again! And HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Moriarty flops out of the ring. Trent builds speed to DIVE, but into Big Bill’s big hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM!! The Lucha Amigos all wince from that and Trent flops to the floor. Bill drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then he tags in. Bill runs in at Trent, but Trent dodges the splash! Bill hits buckles and maybe even post! Trent half nelsons but Bill elbows free, only to get a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Trent then reels Bill back in, SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF!!
Fans fire up with Best Friends, and Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Trent then drags Bill up while Chuck climbs the corner. But Moriarty CLUBS Chuck down off the corner! Bill turns Alabama Lift into Canadian Rack, but Trent slips free! Trent runs, but into the BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!! Fans fire up from that feat of strength, and Bill tags Moriarty. They haul Trent up, Bill full nelsons and Moriarty gets the legs, NARAKU!! Cover off the full nelson swinging bomb, but Chuck breaks it!! Fans fire up as Best Friends survive! Moriarty drags Chuck up to TOSS him! Tag to Bill and they go back to Trent.
Moriarty wants Bill to go to the corner and Bill climbs up. Moriarty brings Trent up, but Chuck anchors Bill! Trent sends Moriarty into Little Willie! Moriarty flops out of the ring, and Best Friends fire off hands on Bill! They adjust Bill’s position up there, then climb up after him! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX!! Trent crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Bill survives and the Varsity Athletes are amused. The Lucha Amigos rally for Trent & Chuck as Chuck reels Bill in. But Moriarty slides in to claw Chuck’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Trent whips Moriarty. Moriarty reverses to send Trent out and then BOOT him down!
But Chuck kicks Moriarty and reels him in! AWFUL WAFFLE!! But Bill BOOTS Chuck!! Bill choke grips, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAMS him!! Cover, Bill & Moriarty win!
Winners: Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall
Moriarty & Morrissey stand tall, but this was in tag team action. The battle royal is every man for himself, will it come down to these two at the end? Wait, they go up to the Lucha Amigos to talk some trash, and Bandido gives thumbs down right to their faces. Bill shoves Bandido, so Bandido throws a forearm! Moriarty goes after Bandido, the Lucha Brothers go after Moriarty and Bill! And then Butcher, Blade, Kip, and the Varsity Athletes join in! People are sent into railing, and the Varsity Athletes mug Trent in the ring! Sterling tells them to keep going, but here comes ORANGE CASSIDY himself!
The Freshly Squeezed International Champion is here, he runs the Varsity Athletes off swinging his backpack, but the other entrants are still brawling it out on the outside! Cassidy shows off the prize, but here comes THE MACHINE! Brian Cage storms his way down to the ring, but here comes KEITH LEE! He and Dustin Rhodes storm their way down to the ring, and they add a lot of beef to the brawl! Naturally Limitless mugs Cage, the Varsity Athletes still mug Trent, and Cassidy just looks around at the chaos. But then “Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve is here in person, but he doesn’t seem in any rush to save Cage.
Keith eyes Swerve from the ramp, but Dustin still throws hands on Cage. Keith storms up after Swerve, but Swerve laughs and dares him to follow backstage. Cage turns things around on Dustin, all the other teams keep beating on each other! If this is how it is to close Rampage, how much wilder will it get when the title is on the line?
A really good Rampage for the go-home of Double or Nothing, and obviously since we didn’t see the traditional pre-battle-royal brawl on Dynamite, of course we saw it here to close the show. The main event tag match was great stuff, and what a great surprise that Best Friends didn’t win! The go-home math now says Moriarty & Morrissey aren’t winning, though I would love if one of them did have a belt. Honestly, they’re trying to make it seem like Cassidy is going to retain the title, since almost everyone else in the battle royal either A) has a feud going already or B) just isn’t at midcard champion level yet.
For example, Swerve & Cage VS Keith & Dustin. We should’ve had some kind of blowoff way sooner than this, maybe on a themed Dynamite and in a No Disqualification style match. Same thing for Ricky Starks, Jay White and Juice Robinson being in this match. But that problem goes all the way back to how AEW handled Starks VS Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society. In the end, if anyone new is winning this belt, I would actually want it to be Komander. Komander is still with AAA, so I would love to see him do a tour of Mexico with the title the same way Pac toured the UK with it to establish that first reign.
Decent squash match from Ethan & Gunns beating those jobbers we never even got the names of, and great promo with Hardy Party to establish a new take on the Six Man Tag. Hook joining is a natural choice given he helped the Hardys against The Firm before, but something about this feels like the same backwards pacing as we’ve seen with Starks. The Hardys should’ve turned the contract control tables on Ethan way before The Firm Deletion, with The Firm Deletion being the blowoff that sends the Hardys and Ethan in different directions. Hook & Hardys will definitely win, and we will get who knows how many months of shenanigans where Matt orders Ethan around.
Really good women’s tag match with Britt & Shida winning, even though there’s nothing to win for women’s tag teams in AEW anymore/right now. But of course The Outcasts attack Hayter 3v1 to put her on the defensive. This go-home math would mean Hayter overcomes the odds because she has Britt & Shida helping against Saraya & Ruby. Personally, I’m hoping Taya Valkyrie beats Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, so that Jade can then jump up to the world title scene and really just tear into all six ladies. What bigger way to lead into AEW Collision, AEW All In and AEW All Out this Summer than with Jade finally being more than the midcard champion?
And great stuff at the beginning with The Acclaimed VS LFI. I just knew Acclaimed would find a way to win and then call out The House of Black. Apparently House of Black issued an open challenge for Double or Nothing, so The Acclaimed has answered it already. I am curious to know what stipulation The Acclaimed will bring to the Open House, but I really can’t be sure who wins. The House of Black have made the Trios Championships unique from the other titles, and have a growing popularity with the fans, but The Acclaimed are also really popular. This is like how AEW booked themselves into a corner with Hobbs VS Wardlow, and look where that’s gotten Hobbs.
My Score: 8.7/10
