The New Day is here!

Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods are ready to keep the momentum from last week going, and they get the mics to welcome Columbus, Ohio and all the Buckeyes to SmackDown! It feels real good to be coming live from THE Ohio State University, BAAAABYYYY~! And what better place than this to talk about something very near and dear to the New Day. And that thing is victory! Fans chant, “O H! I O!” for themselves, and Kofi says as we all know, Sheamus, Ridge and Butch, the “Brawling Brutes-” Wait what? That’s their name? That’s what they chose for their group? Alright…

The Brawling Brutes done put the New Day through the wringer, but now New Day is in the winner’s column, thanks to one man. That is the sword swinging, Claymore kicking man of the hour, say it with Woods, “DREW! MCINTYRE!” The Scottish Warrior heads to the ring now! McIntyre fires the fans up with the pyro, then he gets the mic. “We’re loud tonight! Before we get started, I want to send a special shoutout to somebody watching at home. Who could that be?” Who who who? That somebody is Big E. Fans cheer for that, and McIntyre says he’s been injured before, knows what it is like. It feels like you’re alone, but no one has forgotten him!

Fans chant for “BIG E! BIG E!” McIntyre says he’ll keep sending some pictures to keep Big E going. Pictures of…? McIntyre notes his return to SmackDown last week, he’s been doing some thinking. But he vows that he will challenge for and win the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion at Clash at the Castle! But that’s September, this is now! If the New Day is ever in need, count on ya boi, BIG D! They know Big D always goes in- WHOA! Family friendly, McIntyre. We walk the line, don’t go too far. Lots of edging. But hard segue, that shirt goes hard. What? Kneel for the Steel? Pretty self explanatory, you get down on your knees-

NO NO NO! Get the gift! Get the gift! Kofi gets a box and says this is for McIntyre. They didn’t have to. Yeah but he’ll like it. Well, alright. McIntyre’s birthday is Monday so happy early birthday to him. Hold the sword. McIntyre opens the box as fans chant, “Happy Birthday!” McIntyre brings out a BIG D kilt! But then here come the Brawling Brutes! Sheamus “apologizes” for interrupting this sad little love fest, but last week’s win was as tainted as every single Ohio State championship! You know it’s true! But see, they didn’t know Lil’ D was gonna rear his big ugly head and be a tag team partner. The brutes had no time to prepare for Fight Night! No time to game plan for Fight Night!

But if they go fight night again, they’d kick #DrewDay’s stinkin’ arses all over the kip. Fans boo but Sheamus tells them to settle down. Sheamus doesn’t like to complain, but then Butch rushes in! He fires off on #DrewDay but they toss him back out! Fans fire up and it seems McIntyre is more than ready to take on the Bruiserweight! Will there be a Claymore in Pete Dunne’s future?


Six Man Tag: Drew McIntyre & The New Day VS The Brawling Brutes!

SmackDown returns and holla holla, it’s a rematch from last week! Will The Fella be proven right now that this is a “fair” fight? Or will #DrewDay rock the brutes all over again?

Sheamus has Woods on the apron and he gives Woods Beats of the Bodhrain! Sheamus goes to ten, Dunne tags in to fire off his own beats! He has a unique rhythm, but he drags Woods in to wrench the arm,. Woods JAWBREAKERS free, wrenches Dunne then tags Kofi. Dunne breaks free but runs into double mule kicks!

Ridge tags in, Dunne feeds Woods to a POUNCE! Ridge roars, he stomps and grinds Woods at the ropes, then he brings Woods up to ROCK Woods with a right. Tag to Sheamus, he stomps Woods, CLUBS him, then tags Dunne. The brutes mug Woods, Dunne KICKS the leg. Dunne grinds the arm, digs his knees into the arm. Fans rally up, but Dunne fishhooks Woods and stomps his hand! Tag to Sheamus, Sheamus stomps Woods, then he hauls Woods up. Fans rally, Woods lands out of the back suplex and dodges to hot tag Kofi! Kofi GAMANGIRIS Sheamus, then goes up to AX HANDLE! Kofi also BLASTS Ridge and Dunne!

Kofi fires off on Sheamus, dropkick, but Sheamus blocks the leaping lariat! Sheamus runs in at the corner but Kofi sends him into POST! Kofi goes up and up to CROSSBODY! TWO, but Kofi PENALTY KICKS! And then the NEW~ DAY~ Boom Drop! Fans fire up and claps along, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Dunne anchors Kofi’s foot, but McIntyre RAMS him into steel! Sheamus CLOBBERS Kofi, Alabama Lift, but Kofi sunset flips! Sheamus rolls through but Kofi KNEES Him out! Ridge gets up but Woods DECKS him! Kofi and Woods build speed, DOUBLE TOPE! The New Day take out the Brutes and Woods snatches McAfee’s headset!

Fans are fired up while Woods says SmackDown is the best show WWE has going! Woods says he wants the Intercontinental Championship, too! He keeps going but SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Sheamus has Kofi in a chinlock! Sheamus squeezes tight but fans rally up. Kofi fights up, but Sheamus puts him in the Brute corner.

Winners: The Brawling Brutes, by pinfall

A huge upset as the Bruiserweight and buddies gets the better of Woods! Will Big D take it upon himself to bend Butch and make him #KneeltotheSteel?


Backstage interview with Matt Riddle & Shinsuke Nakamura.

The BROnin just united as a team last Friday, and now they’re challenging for the tag titles! How exciting is that? Pretty exciting, actually. Riddle says they’re still in the honeymoon phase, and Shin’s no Randy, but he has sweet movies. And Riddle is no Boogs, but he is pretty smooth. Kayla hates to point this out, but things didn’t really go Riddle’s way last time. Roman Reigns did help the Usos cheat to unify the titles, and then the Bloodline brutalized Randy Orton and Matt Riddle.

Riddle says as much pain as the Bloodline caused Randy, he promises he will hurt them twice as bad. Roman and the Usos may have ended Randy’s career, but tonight isn’t just about those titles. Tonight is about vengeance! This one is for Riddle’s best bud, Randy. Will the Stallion and the King of Strong Style rip those titles away from Jimmy & Jey and strike first blood against the Bloodline?


Adam Pearce is on the phone.

He discusses tonight’s Six Pack Challenge, and says it is a great idea. And surprisingly, it came from Ronda Rousey herself. She figured if they all want a shot, they should all get a chance to earn it. Pearce agrees with that logic, and- Wait, there’s a knock at the door. And then in walks Max Dupri. Pearce tells the other person he’ll talk more later. Max makes sure the person on the other end knows it’s Max Du-PRI. And for seven long days, Max has scoured the roster for the next crossover superstar. A man who can represent the WWE on any runway on this planet. We’re talking Paris, Milan, Berlin! Even WrestleMania!

Now, while Pearce doesn’t make the cut, as Max said last week, Max has found his first client! A diamond in the rough! A man who will walk away from Instagram to enter the bright lights of the WWE. And that man is…?  Well that’s a little invasive, Pearce. Just wait like the rest of the world. You’ll see next week, Maximum Male Model’s first client will be unveiled by yours truly, Max Du-PRI! So just who did make the cut?


Humberto Carrillo w/ Angel Garza VS Jinder Mahal w/ Shanky!

Los Lotharios got a big win last week as Samantha Irvin ended up an inadvertent distraction. But of course, things can’t start without the Los Lotharios Kiss Cam. They have to move on past their usual corner and the end up on the other side to give a young lady the kisses on the cheek. But will the Modern Day Maharaja facing Humberto 1v1 be a big change from last week? Or will the Lethal Lovers keep the momentum going even in singles competition?

SmackDown returns and Shanky is getting his groove on at gorilla. But Jinder tells him to take this seriously! No dancing! Jinder leads the way out but Shanky can’t help but get his groove on to the theme song. He stops when Jinder looks at him, and then Jinder has him stay over in the corner. Shanky gets a little shimmy in then the bell rings. Garza distracts Jinder, Carrillo fires off on him! Carrillo dropkicks, then runs in again to stomp Jinder down! The ref counts, Carrillo lets off and then he goes up to wave hi to Samantha. Shanky frowns as Carrillo CLUBS and CHOPS Jinder! Carrillo CLUBS and CHOPS again, then whips corner to corner.

Jinder reverses, Carrillo goes up and over, but then Carrillo runs into a back drop! Shanky dances it up as fans fire up, and Jinder stomps Carrillo to ropes. Jinder drops knees over and over at the ropes, digs his knees in, but lets off at the ref’s count. Jinder drags Carrillo up onto the apron, but Carrillo HOTSHOTS him! Then GAMANGIRIS! Carrillo slingshots in and springboards, but Jinder ducks the crossbody! THRUST KICK! Fans fire up and Garza is worried. Jinder aims from a corner, fires up, Shanky feels it, too! But Shanky’s chanting distracts Jinder. Jinder tells Shanky to take this seriously! Carrillo rolls Jinder up, but Shanky arguing with the ref prevents the count!

Carrillo lets off, he’s upset about this, and he tells Shanky to get down! But then Jinder rolls Carrillo! JINDER WINS!

Winner: Jinder Mahal, by pinfall

Shanky dances for the victory, and Jinder is unsure what to make of it. But he did win, so shouldn’t he be in a better mood? As for Shanky, he sees Samantha smiling, and he gives her more of that Bollywood best! She gives it back! IS the skyscraping dance machine going to have one hot Summer?


Ronda Rousey is here!

The Baddest Woman on the Planet and SmackDown Women’s Champion is here because she wants to see who wins the right to challenge her firsthand! Who busts this Six Pack wide open and gets that golden ticket?

SmackDown Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Six Pack Challenge: Raquel Rodriguez VS Shayna Baszler VS Natalya VS Shotzi Blackheart VS Aliyah VS Xia Li!

Big Mami Cool has had her opportunities and gave Ronda some great fights, but she’ll have to win the biggest fight of her career to get another shot. The Queen of Spades, the Queen of Harts, the Wild Child, the… Well, it seems someone locked Aliyah inside the locker room again… Shotzi is laughing it up so we can all guess who. But will someone free #Aliyah316 so she can join the Spicy Xia and the rest of the field? We’ll see, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Shayna makes her entrance, followed by Xia Li and then Natalya. But what about Aliyah? Shotzi says she’s out by default and wants this to get going. But surprise! Aliyah is here! The bell rings and she TACKLES Shotzi! Shotzi scrambles away, Aliyah chases after her, and then hits a FLYING THESZ PRESS! Shayna & Natty go after Aliyah together, double whipping her over barriers and into the timekeeper’s area! Raquel shoves Xia down, but the Queens return. Raquel sees she’s surrounded but just fights them off! Kick for Shayna, forearm for Xia, Raquel even barrels through Natty’s discus!

Raquel DOUBLE LARIATS Natty and Xia and the Buckeyes fire up! Shotzi leaps on, but Raquel deflects the crossbody! She scoops Shotzi to swing her into Shayna and TOSS her onto Xia! Raquel gets Natty up, TEXANA- NO! Shayna saves Natty and hops on for a KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! They tumble out of the ring, so Natty hurries to get old enemy Xia by the legs! Natty stomps away on Xia, steps through, but Xia fights the Sharpshooter off! Xia fires forearms, Natty hits back! They brawl, fans fire up and Natty whips. Xia reverses and runs in to STEP UP ELBOW! Xia then snap suplexes Natty away!

Fans fire up as Xia runs and SPIN KICKS Natty down! Cover, Aliyah breaks it! Aliyah brings Xia up, dodges her haymaker and BULLDOGS! Xia bails out so Aliyah covers Natty! Shayna breaks it, brings Aliyah up, gut wrench SLAM! Aliyah bails out, Shotzi returns to kick Shayna! Another old rivalry here, Shotzi jumps for a SATELLITE DDT! Shotzi laughs but turns around into a HEEL KICK from Xia! Natty rushes Xia and hits the DISCUS! Natty kicks Raquel as she gets in and fires off hands! Natty kicks low, but Raquel blocks the punch! Raquel shakes her head, choke grips Natty, but Natty RAMS Raquel into buckles! Roll up, TWO!

Raquel BOOTS Natty down! Raquel drags Natty into a drop zone but Shotzi bumps Raquel off buckles! Raquel gives Shotzi the buckle bump back, then deadlifts Shotzi up and over the corner! GOURD BUSTER onto Natty! Raquel stacks those two, TWISTING VADER! Ronda is rather impressed as Raquel gives Shotzi the TEXANA BOMB!! But Shayna and the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH returns! But Natty covers Shotzi! NATTY WISN!

Winner: Natalya, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the SmackDown Women’s Champion)

Ricky Desperado does all the damage, the Queen of Spades gets her out of the way, and it’s the BOAT that takes the win! Ronda gets up from her seat and gets into the ring to stare down her former friend. Ronda smirks, then laughs. Will Rowdy Ronda bring Natty down like a house of cards when the time comes for this match?


Happy Corbin speaks.

This was actually recorded last week in response to Mad Cap Moss’ Instagram ultimatum. Corbin tells Moss that if he does show up for SmackDown tonight, he has two options: get another ride out of the arena in an ambulance that will make a stop at the funeral home; or get down on his knees and beg Corbin to give him his job back. What will Moss choose? We’re about to find out!

An ambulance pulls up into the arena.

And busting out of it isn’t Mad Cap but a raging RIDDICK Moss! No hats, no suspenders, and no laughing matter! Will Moss show Corbin who’s boss around here?


“Mad Cap” Riddick Moss heads to the ring!

Fans are fired up just like Moss is, and Moss gets a mic. “Three weeks ago, I laid in this ring with a steel chair wrapped around my neck, and a ninety pound trophy slammed down on me. Now the man who did that, Happy Corbin, he thought that that would be the end of Mad Cap Moss. Well let me tell you all something! He was right. The man that he thought he knew as Mad Cap Moss is gone. The man that would take his crap week after week, the man that would just laugh it off and do his job, the ’employee’ Mad Cap Moss isn’t just gone, I buried him.

When the weight of that trophy smashed down on me, maybe it knocked something loose in my head. Because every night since then, I’ve had this dream where I’m hitting Corbin in the face harder and harder as he says, ‘Tell us a joke, Mad Cap!'” Moss grins and says one day, he woke up and thought, “Y’know who I bet would love to see that happen? Is allllll of you here tonight! SO Corbin, you human fedora rack, get your sorry ass out here right now before I come back there and find you!” Fans fire up with Moss, and here comes Corbin! Corbin already has a mic and says, “Mad Cap, I’m sorry. But you’re not here to fight. I know the real reason you’re here. ‘Cause you missed me, pal!”

Corbin says Moss misses the structure brought to his life by being Corbin’s employee, and is here to beg for his job back. And Corbin will consider it. Moss says the only thing he wants is Corbin to come here so he can knock those teeth down Corbin’s throat! Corbin wants Moss to calm down. There’s nothing that would make Corbin happier than teaching Moss another lesson in humility. But not tonight! Moss is angry, he isn’t thinking straight, and Corbin would hate for Moss to throw away his entire career just because he’s emotional. It’s a bad idea. But Adam Pearce walks out to say actually, a match would be a great idea!

Pearce asks if the fans want to see it. The fans do, so Pearce says the match is official! Will Corbin no longer be happy after the raging Riddick Moss rips him apart?

Happy Corbin VS Mad Cap Moss!

SmackDown returns and Corbin is reluctant to get in the ring. Moss gives him room and the ref tells Corbin to get in the ring. Corbin wants more space, fans boo but Corbin gets in finally. The bell rings, Corbin bails right back out! Fans boo again and Moss is frustrated, but the ring count starts. Corbin gets on the apron, gets in, but he uses the ropes and the ref as a defense! Then Corbin kicks Moss in the leg and sucker punches him! Corbin cheers himself, but turns around into a LARIAT! Moss then clotheslines Corbin out of the ring! Moss goes after Corbin, RAMS him into barriers, then RAMS him into more barriers!

Fans rally, Moss POSTS Corbin, and the ring count is 5 of 10. Moss puts Corbin in, fires up again, but Corbin bails back out. Moss hurries over, Corbin has a chair! Moss sees that and he kicks Corbin first! Moss uses the chair and hits Corbin!

Winner: Happy Corbin, by disqualification

The DQ doesn’t matter, Moss fires off on Corbin! He SMACKS Corbin on the back, and again! Fans fire up with Moss and he goes out to get something more! STEEL STEPS! Fans are loving where Moss is going with this, and Moss puts those stairs in the ring. Moss gets the chair to SMACK Corbin again! That chair has a good dent in it but Moss CHOKES Corbin with it, then JAMS him in the ribs! Moss puts the chair around Corbin’s neck and stands on it to choke him more! Then he gets the steel steps! Moss wants to return the favor from three weeks ago, but referees and officials rush out to stop this! Corbin gets away with his life, but will Moss hunt him down to the ends of the earth?


Backstage interview with The Usos.

Kayla holds the mic up for Jimmy & Jey, and Jimmy asks Jey if he just saw Moss go after Corbin trying to take his cap off. Moss trying to get real, sending Corbin to the ICU. Well, the hospital’s got two more guests coming in Riddle & Shinsuke. Kayla asks about Riddle’s comments and his dedication to Randy. Oh, you mean this one? “Hey, Ran~dy! This one’s for you~! Bro.” That’s supposed to motivate them? Nope! Usos have motivation, too! This one goes out to the Tribal Chief, the Needle Mover, the Head of the Table, and Undisputed Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. The Bloodline will still be draped in all the gold, still the Undisputed Tag Team Champions! Riddle & Nakamura are the twos, but #WeTheOnes! But will they be the ones dethroned in THE Ohio State University arena?


Happy Corbin is making his exit from the arena.

He’s clutching his side while dragging his luggage along, but Adam Pearce finds him first. Corbin is happy to see him. Surely Moss is suspended, right? No, not at all. Corbin did worse to Moss so there are no suspensions here. In fact, since Corbin and Moss are so hellbent on destroying each other, they’re going to have another match this Sunday at Hell in a Cell! And it will be NO HOLDS BARRED! No running, no hiding, but will there be no surviving the wrath of Riddick Moss?



The WWE Intercontinental Championship will be on the line next week on SmackDown! Ricochet will defend against Der Ring General, GUNTHER! But speaking of the champ, here is the champ!

Ricochet speaks.

“Gunther and his sidekick, Ludwig, always want to talk about respect. But you see this? I got this because my work in between those ropes is impeccable, flawless. Now, I train day in and day out, and I earned those skills that I have in that ring. So next week, yeah, I am confident. I am confident that Gunther will respect all my capabilities on that so-called sacred mat that they talk about and that this, this will continue to sit pretty on the shoulder of the One and Only.”

Imperium responds.

Ludwig Kaiser says the mat IS sacred, and the Intercontinental Championship represents honor and integrity. There is no man more worthy of it than GUNTHER. “Ricochet, your time is up.” Gunther says, “Der Ring General will become the NEW Intercontinental Champion!”


Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships: The Usos VS The BROnin!

Jimmy & Jey retained the SmackDown Tag Team Championships against Nakamura & Boogs at WrestleMania, and they won the Raw Tag Team Championships off RKBRO (with help from Roman). But when the King of Strong Style and the Stallion joined forces, they pushed Usos to the point of throwing the match and giving them this opportunity! Will Nakamura & Riddle be the winning combination that finally tears down the Uso Penitentiary? Or will the Bloodline continue their dominance across both brands by any means necessary?

The introductions are made, one belt each is raised, and we see just how undisputed the Usos are, after the break!

SmackDown returns once again and the teams sort out. Nakamura starts with Jey, and Nakamura rushes Jey at the bell! Nakamura knees low, throws more knees into Jey’s shoulders and ribs, then brings him up for even more knees! Tag to Riddle, they give KICK after KICK on Jey, then feed to the FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Riddle keeps on Jey with forearms, but Jimmy tags in as Riddle whips. Jey reverses, the Usos DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER! Jimmy stomps Riddle on his back and hips, remembering the damage done a few weeks ago. BIG back suplex, cover, TWO! Jimmy clamps onto a chinlock and he grinds Riddle down.

Riddle endures, fans rally up, Jimmy talks trash, but Riddle gets up to his feet. Riddle throws body shots, Jimmy keeps him from Nakamura and scoops, but Riddle slips out! ROUNDHOUSE! Both men are down but the fans rally up! Hot tags to Jey and Nakamura! Nakamura ducks a haymaker, Jey ducks a roundhouse, but the WHEEL KICK catches Jey! Nakamura KNES Jimmy, AX KICKS, then goes after Jey with more kicks! The ref counts but Nakamura gives Jey GOOD VIBRATIONS~! Nakamura then puts Jey up top, rolls and runs in, TOP SHELF KNEE! Cover, TWO! Nakamura gets Jey up, whips him to a corner, then he runs in, and blocks Jey’s boots!

Nakamura puts Jey in the ropes, ROUNDHOUSE and a roll, SLIDING GERMAN! Fans fire up and Riddle tags in to KNEE Jey down! Cover, TWO! Jey survives and Riddle fumes but fans fire up. Riddle drags Jey up but Jey fireman’s carries! Riddle slips off and shoves, Jey DECKS Nakamura! Jey then ducks Riddle’s roundhouse but Riddle lands out of the back suplex! Riddle is in a corner, he BOOTS Jey away! Riddle goes up, Jimmy trips him while the ref is busy with Jey! Riddle lands bac on his face, Jimmy tags in! The Usos DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Cover, Nakamura breaks it with a KINSHASA! Jey gets in but gets a ROUNDHOUSE!

Nakamura goes out after Jey! Nakamura RAMS Jey into steps! Nakamura wants Jey to get up and McAfee wants it for him! But Jey dodges, Nakamura’s knee hits the steps! Jimmy gets Nakamura up, he sets Nakamura up for Jey to STOMP the bad leg! The ref checks on Nakamura, did they just take his leg out like what happened to Boogs? The ref calls for medics to check this and the Usos go to the ring. Fans boo, but the Usos hold up the fingers because they the ones who just took out Nakamura. Riddle checks with Nakamura, is this match done already? Riddle says he’ll go it alone! He DECKS Jey, DECKS Jimmy, then gets in to fire off on Jimmy!

Fans are thunderous behind the Bro and he clotheslines Jimmy out! Can the Bro be undisputed all by himself?  We’ll have to wait and see as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns once more and Jimmy has Riddle down, Jimmy brings Riddle up to whip tot he corner, but Riddle fires off forearm sand elbows all over! Riddle fires off on Jimmy, blocks a kick but gets the DRAGON WHIP! Cover, TWO! Jimmy calls to Jey, they tag, and the Usos drag Riddle up. The Usos double whip Riddle to the corner HARD, and Riddle bounces off buckles! Jey raises the finger, and he mocks the voices in Orton’s head! Fans boo, but Jey turns around into Riddle’s FINAL FLASH! Both men are down, but only Jey has a partner! Jey crawls over, tags in Jimmy, and Jimmy gets Riddle up, only for Riddle to fire off palm strikes!

Riddle BOOTS Jimmy, then spins him to a PELE! Then he eggs Jey on and gets him for a ripcord, FINAL FLASH! Usos are in opposite corners, Riddle goes back and forth with forearm smash after forearm smash! BROSPLODER for Jimmy! Forearm and BROSPLODER for Jey! BROTON for Jimmy! BROTON for Jey! Fans fire up and Riddle has Jimmy on the apron! Riddle brings Jimmy in, but Jey saves Jimmy from the DDT. So Riddle goes out to PENALTY KICK Jey! And ASAI FLOATING BRO for Jimmy! Fans are thunderous as Riddle gets Jimmy in the ring! Riddle aims, dodges, POWERSLAM a la Orton!

Riddle puts Jimmy through ropes, drags him through, DRAPING DDT! Fans fire up again as Riddle hears those voices, bro! Jimmy gets up, Riddle rushes in but no RKO! Jey’s on the apron so Riddle DECKS him! Riddle switches with Jimmy and rolls him up! TWO!! POP-UP SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Riddle survives and Jimmy can’t believe it! The Buckeyes are fired up again as Jimmy goes to a corner! Jimmy goes up top but Riddle is right up there after him! But Roman’s music hits! Jey tags in before Riddle hits the SUPER RKO!! Jey is up top, USO SPLASH!! Cover, The Usos retain!!

Winners: The Usos, by pinfall (still the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)

Wait a minute, Sami Zayn is in the production truck?! And HE is the one who cued up the Tribal Chief’s music?! Sami helped the Usos and screwed over Riddle, and celebrates like HE won the titles! Will this win the Honorary Uce major points with the Head of the Table? Or has he just added himself to the Bro’s Bloodline hitlist? Speaking of, Riddle rushes out after them all! He CLOBBERS Sami, but the Usos go after him! Referees rush out to stop this! Riddle shouts, “THIS ISN’T THE END! YOU TOOK RANDY FROM ME! YOU DON’T TAKE RANDY!!” Will the Stallion stampede and smash Sami along the way?

My Thoughts:

A really good go-home for SmackDown that wasn’t bogged down by the usual Go Home Syndrome. There was one major recap package for Cody VS Rollins to hype up their Hell in a Cell match and that was about it. But at the same time, going into tonight, there were basically NO SmackDown related matches on the HIAC card so that could be why there wasn’t Go Home Syndrome. Moss returning in a much more serious capacity was a great part of tonight, as was him having a match with Corbin that then gets disqualified and results in a No Holds Barred rematch. However, I don’t think it should be on the HIAC card over the Intercontinental Championship.

We got good promos from Ricochet and Imperium, and I am glad that we’re getting the Intercontinental Championship match-up I was hoping for, but shouldn’t a title take priority when booking a PPV event? Give me the swap: Ricochet VS Gunther on HIAC and then No Holds Barred next week. But at the same time, SmackDown needs things to bring these episodes up in quality and ratings, and I suppose a title match will do that. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gunther wins that title and runs with it for a bit, and in the No Holds Barred, I would hope Moss wins, he’s the hot hand after tonight’s hot promo.

A little disappointed SmackDown redid last week’s Six Man Tag. Good promo segment between New Day and McIntyre, with New Day using innuendo with McIntyre like they would with Big E, so clearly McIntyre is fitting right in. But of course the Brutes win the Six Man Tag, this is turning into a 3v3 feud, but I hope we still get McIntyre VS Dunne 1v1 before this is over. Also McIntyre calling out Roman for Clash at the Castle, that is definitely going to be the match we see, and who knows which way that will go. Well, alright, it probably goes Roman’s way but McIntyre better not get screwed over like everyone else does.

Pretty funny stuff out of the segment with Jinder, Shanky and Los Lotharios, and I like that Jinder gets the win thanks to Shanky now. Fans in Ohio seemed to really dig Shanky getting his groove on and dancing with Samantha, but let’s all hope and pray this doesn’t turn into another Rusev Day where Vince refuses to acknowledge Shanky is actually popular and then it gets dragged through the mud. We got another pretty funny promo segment with Pearce and Max Du-PRI, and I’m definitely wondering who Max’s first “client” will be. Mansoor and Dio Maddin/Mace were supposed to be in the faction but who knows, Vince’s whims are hard to predict.

We got a pretty good Six Pack Challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, and a somewhat clever use of Shotzi locking Aliyah up in return for last time. I thought it was going to be Shayna getting the win here but Natty sniping her as well as Raquel was a very clever finish. Ronda VS Natty will of course go Ronda’s way, and it saves Ronda VS Shayna for SummerSlam to give that story the bigger stage it deserves.

And then we got a great tag team main event, but since this was put on SmackDown and not a PPV, it was a given Usos would retain. Them faking Nakamura’s knee injury was a pretty good story beat, with Riddle fighting all on his own and really getting the crowd behind him. Sami pulling that theme song swerve was also pretty clever. Riddle can fight Sami, then get after Roman for MITB or SummerSlam since McIntyre has already stated he’ll wait for Clash at the Castle.

Axiom watches NXT UK episodes on Peacock.

Tyler Bate walks over to see it’s Tyler Bate VS A-Kid for the Heritage Cup. Bate was always a big fan of A-Kid’s. They had some excellent matches in NXT. Axiom agrees, A-Kid’s the best. What ever happened to him? Bate says Axiom reminds him of A-Kid. He isn’t sure what it is, he can’t put his finger on it. Axiom says he gets that a lot. But Bate, that Heritage Cup match was very unique, a real masterpiece. How about they create a masterpiece of their own tonight? Bate loves that idea! But then in walks Damon Kemp with sarcastic applause.

Kemp says he was walking around, and overhead them. Friendly competition makes him sick! “I respect your work a lot! I respect your work to infinity!” When Kemp was in NXT UK, he learned that all the Limeys are soft! And the European wrestling style is overrated! And if you ever see A-Kid personally, tell him that Kemp says he’s hot garbage! Well, if Axiom does see A-Kid around, he’ll tell him. Kemp walks off, but Bate says Kemp is a “right wazzock.” A what? A pendejo. Oh! Okay. Bate heads out, will Axiom get that friendly competition? Or will he first take care of Kemp’s attitude first?


Zoey Stark VS Indi Hartwell!

These two had an impressive showing in this year’s Women’s Royal Rumble match, though neither won their ticket to WrestleMania. But Indi also wants to get to the bottom of who attacked Nikkita Lyons in the parking lot. All signs point to The Hunter, will Indi get her to confess?

The bell rings and fans sing, “OH~ Zoey is angry~!” Zoey gets mad hearing that, and then ties up with Indi. They go around, Indi puts Zoey in a corner, and the ref counts. Indi lets off at 4, but Zoey shoves her back. Indi shoves back, then dodges to CHOP! And ROCK! Indi fires off and fans cheer her on. Indi whips, Zoey holds ropes, then Zoey bails out. Fans boo while Zoey throws a tantrum. Indi slips out after Zoey, they go around the way, and Indi avoids the elbow drop! Indi drags Zoey out to RAM Her into the apron, and again! Indi gets in the ring, drags Zoey up by her hair, and into the ropes for an UPPERCUT! And BOOT!

Zoey flops down, Indi drags her to a cover, TWO! Indi drags Zoey up for a short arm LARIAT! And then another! Fans rally but Zoey gets around and claws Indi’s eyes! Zoey snapmares Indi, runs and SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Indi sits up, Zoey stomps her on the back. Zoey tells fans that THEY suck, and she clamps onto an armlock and chinbar.

Zoey kicks low, whips Indi hard into a corner, then whips her in again! Zoey soaks up heat and whips corner to corner.

Indi reverses, Zoey bounces off buckles and into a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Indi gives a thumbs up and fans cheer. Indi puts Zoey in the ropes again, but Zoey avoids the uppercut to HOTSHOT! Indi falls, Zoey slingshots for the ARABIAN SENTON! Cover, TWO! Zoey snarls and she rains down fists on Indi! Indi gets up and flounders to a corner but Zoey snapmares her down. Zoey cravats for a neck wrench but Indi endures. Fans rally, Indi fights up, but Zoey wrangles her back down! Zoey cranks the cravat but Indi still endures.

Zoey powers Indi back, but Indi RAMS Zoey into the corner! Zoey BOOTS Indi back! And then fires forearms! Indi hits back, they go shot for shot, but Indi kicks, JABS and DECKS Zoey!

HEEL KICK! Zoey waistlocks, to GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Indi is still in this but Zoey is frustrated. Zoey waistlocks and drags Indi up, but Indi arm-drags out of the half nelson. Indi scoops but Zoey slips out to fireman’s carry! But Indi flights free!

Indi shoves Zoey away, runs in but is put on the apron. Indi ROCKS Zoey first, then springboards, but Zoey trips her up! Indi crashes down, Zoey drags her back up! Z 360!! Cover, Zoey wins!

Winner: Zoey Stark, by pinfall

Whether innocent or guilty in the whodunnit, Zoey Stark is still the winner here! But then Zoey attacks Indi! Sol Ruca rushes out and chases Zoey off! The Hunter has a target on her own back, will karma catch up to her one way or another?


The Schism speaks.

Joe Gacy says, “A day of vengeance is on the horizon for The Schism.” Rip Fowley says, “We seek vengeance for something that has been owed to us for far too long.” Jagger Reed says, “The NXT Tag Team Championships have been kept from us since The Dyad’s inception.” Gacy says, “Tonight, Rip and Jagger change their destiny by altering others’ reality.” Ava Raine tells Edris Enofe & Malik Blade, “We know who you are. But everyone at Chase University, you worship a false idol. You are not a family. You are abusive, devious, and delusional. School spirit will not help you tonight, because Chase University will fail. There is no unit stronger than the Schism.”

They are four roots, one tree, but will they be the final team to enter the Fatal 4 Way?


Apollo Crews speaks.

“The city of Charlotte. Packed restaurants, tons of foot traffic, bars with lines out the door. Cars flying down I-85. I came out early to feel Charlotte’s energy, and I feel the city’s excitement all the way up here. NXT’s coming, and I’m coming. I need two falls, two pinfalls, two submissions, or one each. I’ve visualized this match a hundred times. Money Melo is gonna be fast, he’s gonna be flashy, but I am ready for Melo’s handprint. My best will always be better than his best. And if Trick Williams wants to get involved, well Trick’s gonna get handled. Melo wants to call me the past and him the future? At Vengeance Day, the past will dictate the future!”

Apollo has spoken, but will he speak his vision into existence? And just who did Apollo see having his back against Trick Melo Gang?


Wes Lee heads to the ring.

The North American Champion is here, ready for his fight with #HardJustice this Saturday! Wes gets the mic to say, “Yo~! We are T-minus four days from NXT back on the road, and we are swangin’ through Charlotte, North Cackalacky, for Vengeance Day.” And it’ll be a big day for Wes literally because he has his biggest test in Dijak. Dijak is back and claims to be serving justice, but ultimately he just wants what’s shining on Wes’s shoulder. Saturday will be tough, Wes will probably take an ass-whooping. But just like Wes did with Tony and Carmelo, the Cardiac Kid will rise as your North American Champion!

But wait! Here comes DIJAK! “Mr. Lee, I want you to soak this in. I want you to soak it all in. Enjoy these moments, because these are your final days as NXT North American Champion. That was a real impassioned speech you gave, really powerful and motivating. But the reality is, it’s not gonna make a damn bit of difference. You had EVERY opportunity to hand me that championship, but you were too stupid to take it, weren’t you? And now… On Saturday, you’re gonna be standing across the ring, staring down the biggest and baddest man in the ENTIRE NXT locker room! And when that happens, I’m gonna rip that championship from your cold hands.”

Wes says that is exactly what Dijak will have to do! You will have to pry this title from Wes’s cold, dead hands! But understand that it’s much easier said than done. Wes didn’t win by accident. Every minute of training, every risk Wes took in and out of the ring, and every trial and tribulation, Wes has FOUGHT! When Wes felt like he couldn’t anymore, the chaotic support from every single one of the fans showed him that he can reach levels he had only dreamt of! So Saturday, Dijak isn’t just fighting Wes. He is fighting everyone on the #WesSide. Fans cheer Wes on! But Dijak says Wes might be fighting for the fans, but they won’t be fighting for Wes!

Wait! Von Wagner is here? He and Robert Stone walk out and Stone “apologizes.” But maybe his ears aren’t working properly. Dijak said HE’S the biggest and baddest? Have they forgotten about Von? Von tells Dijak, “Take those stupid sunglasses off, we’re inside. and I’m right here. And the only injustice is me getting overlooked.” Dijak tells Von that his eyes are focused on championship gold. Dijak has no issue with Von whatsoever. Wes says he isn’t sure about that. Fans chant “WAGNER SUCKS!” Wes says Dijak claims to be the biggest and baddest, but Von claims HE is the biggest and baddest, so Dijak is basically calling Von a liar.

Dijak tells Wes to shut up, and he knows what he’s up top. What? Wes just sees an injustice that needs to be fixed! Wes hears Von and Stone loud and clear about being overlooked. Come Tuesday… We may need to have a new #1 contender to the North American title. So uh… If Von happens to beat Dijak tonight, then Von will no longer be overlooked. Von will be looked at as a contender. And Stone says that is why they’re here! Right, right. So let’s please, PLEASE solve this injustice. Or Dijak can just give Von his jacket now. Dijak throws hands on Von! Von hits back, and fans fire up as the brawl is on!

Von clotheslines Dijak up and out! Refs rush out to stop this, but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Will we see this brawl turn into a match? WE WILL! Wes gets out of the way, who wins this battle of behemoths?

DIJAK VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

The bell rings, the haymakers fly again, and Dijak kicks low! Dijak whips, Von reverses and KNEES Dijak down! Stone fires up, Von scoops Dijak to FALL AWAY SLAM! Fans fire up while NXT goes picture in picture!

Von drags Dijak up to reel him in. Von suplexes but DIjak blocks! Von CLUBS Dijak, tries again, but Dijak still blocks! Dijak throws body shots, then suplexes, TIME TO FLY! Von crashes, writhes, and goes to a corner. Dijak runs in to kick Von and stomp aw mudhole in! Dijak CLUBS Von, Von kicks back and puts Dijak in a corner for elbows! Von whips corner to corner, Dijak reverses hard and Von falls to the mat! Dijak storms up, drags Von up and turns him to a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Von is still in this but Dijak grits his teeth. Dijak clamps on a cravat and grinds Von with a neck wrench.

Von endures, fans rally up, and Von fights up. Von throws body shots, then haymakers! Von whips Dijak to a corner, then lifts Dijak for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Von is annoyed but he watches Dijak stand. Von CLUBS Dijak, HEADBUTTS him, then ROCKS him with a right. Von whips, Dijak ducks ‘n’ dodges, then holds ropes! Von runs in but is sent into ropes! Von sputters, Dijak stomps him down, and then rains down fists! Stone protests but Dijak lets off to have the neck wrench again. Von endures, fights up, and he throws body shots. NXT returns to single picture as Von throws hands, but Dijak throws elbows and knees!

Dijak SMASHES then DISCUS LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Wes is on commentary and says it was only right that we find out who is truly the biggest and baddest in NXT. Dijak choke grips but Von fights free! Dijak wrenches, mule kicks, then back elbows hard! Dijak reels Von in but Von suplexes Dijak into buckles!! Fans lose their minds while Dijak flops down. Dijak stands up, Von runs in, and Von clotheslines! Von whips corner to corner, but Dijak BOOTS back! Von still fireman’s carries, but Dijak slips off! Dijak shoves Von away and ROCKS him at the ropes! Dijak runs but Von KNEES him low! Von runs, to RAM Dijak!

Dijak rebounds to RAM Von, then he ELBOWS, ELBOWS and CLUBS Von! Then he SUPERKICKS! Dijak runs, into a BOOT! Cover, TWO!! Dijak survives and Stone can’t believe it! Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” and Von waits on Dijak. Dijak slowly rises, Von choke grips, but Dijak flips through the lift! To choke grip and HIGH JUSTICE!! Cover, TWO?!! Von survives and the fans are thunderous! Von goes to a corner, Dijak storms up, “This is Awesome!” as Dijak throws elbows. Dijak hoists Von up top, CLUBS him in the chest, then climbs up after him. Dijak choke grips again, but Von elbows Dijak over and over and over!

Von CLUBS away on Dijak, roars, and hits a SUPER BUTTERFLY SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?!? Fans are thunderous, Stone is beside himself, and Wes is loving this! Von gets Dijak up, OLYMIPC- NO, Dijak slips out to have the HAMMERLOCK SLEEPER! Von flails, reaches out, Stone coaches him, but Dijak says this is gonna be Wes’s future! Von is fading out, then Dijak torture racks! FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, Dijak wins!

Winner: DIJAK, by pinfall

Hard Justice has proven to be THE biggest and baddest man in NXT! But will he prove he is championship material? Or will Wes Lee prove he is must-see?


Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo are watching backstage.

Stacks says he can’t stand that Dijak. He’ll probably win the title on Saturday now. But The Don says not to worry about Dijak. “Street justice has no expiration date.” But what was this big impact Stacks was gonna have? Stacks has to take care of a few things. The first or the second? Both. Wow, really? Yeah, he’s the Underboss! That’s what they do. So next week, Stacks gets it done. Tremendous. Now let’s take care of that other thing. They head out, just what is Stacks going to do to handle his business?


Nikkita Lyons tweets out her status.

“Surgery was a success. Thank you deeply to the WWE universe, my Lyon Pride, for all the love and support you show. I’ll be back stronger than I’ve ever been. #ReadyToPounce Also, a big thank you to the wonderful surgeons, doctors and nurses.” It may be another setback, but will Lyons use that to set up a huge comeback?


McKenzie Mitchell is backstage with more.

McKenzie Mitchell says there are many questions surrounding the attack on Lyons in the NXT parking lot, so she has prepared some footage so that we can get a better idea of what happened. Among those on scene at the time of the attack are Valentina Feroz walking away, Dani Palmer, Arianna Grace and Alexis Leddy walking together going inside, and an unidentified woman driving away. There is also Elektra Lopez walking and talking with newcomer Lola Vice, closest to Nikkita but going on their own path. Freeze here, and you see Tiffany Stratton just going through her bag, but maybe she’s hiding the evidence.

And of course, Zoey Stark is spotted walking away, and even Tatum Paxley and Lash Legend at the very end of the lot. Indi Hartwell and Lyra Valkyria come to Lyons’ aid, and we then spot Wendy Choo peeking out of a car window. Did Wendy witness anything? McKenzie says no one is taking credit for this attack, but she will keep us informed if anyone comes forward with information. Who is behind NXT’s newest whodunnit mystery, and why did they do it?


NXT looks closer at Bron Breakker VS Grayson Waller.

The Big Booty Nephew’s NXT record is already golden, but the 21st Century Success Story isn’t impressed. In fact, he’s sick and tired of it. Waller has been running this for the last eight months, and now he’s made the decision that he needs to be champion. New Year’s Evil was going well until a freak accident took Waller out. So at Vengeance Day, their rematch will be inside a STEEL CAGE! Waller says Bron is a wild dog, and Bron admits his temper has gotten the better of him. But no one has taken advantage of it like Waller. Waller is living rent free in Bron’s brain. Bron says his temper has led to both is biggest wins and most crushing losses.

Waller says Bron will beat himself this time. Bron thought he needed to control the anger, but then he realized, with the steel cage all around them, there’s no need to hold back. Bron will beat Waller within an inch of his life, and pin what’s left! But Waller says he can read Bron like a book. And Waller has read that book, so he’ll past this test. Waller will not just beat Bron but he’ll embarrass him! Bron promises to break Waller inside the steel, but Waller went viral the last time he was inside a cage. This is what Waller wanted, but it’ll be Bron’s Vengeance Day. Who survives the steel to bring home the gold?


Tyler Bate VS Axiom!

Even with Kemp being a right wanker, the Big Strong Boy and the Undeniable Truth are going to focus on friendly competition! Will Bate continue to get A-Kid vibes from Axiom? Or will Axiom be even better than that?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Bate powers Axiom to ropes. The ref counts, Bate lets off, and fans applaud the sportsmanship. They reset, tie up again, and Bate has a cording hold. Axiom whips Bate away, Bate goes up and under and then knuckle locks. Bate steps over, headlocks, waistlocks, trips and body scissors to a clutch, TWO! They tie up, Bate cravats and snapmares, but Axiom is right up. Axiom sidesteps but Bate blocks the arm-drag to hit an arm-drag! Bate has the armlock and fans applaud the exchange. Axiom fights up, facelocks, but Bate powers out to keep on the armlock.

Axiom endures, fans duel, and Axiom goes up and around to whip Bate! Bate reverses to hit the arm-drag again! Fans cheer as Bate keeps on the arm but Axiom fights up. Axiom facelocks, Bate fights that, but Axiom goes up and around again. Bate still has the arm, he turns another whip into another arm-drag, but Axiom fights up. Axiom uses the ref for an assist to flip through! But again Bate reverses a whip! And again! Axiom is frustrated as Bate keeps on the arm. Axiom fights up, goes up and headscissors! Bate throws Axiom away, Axiom avoids the elbow to springboard arm-drag, kip up and ENZIGURI! Cover, TWO!

Axiom keeps on Bate with a facelock, fans rally up, and Bate rolls. Axiom rolls with Bate, covers, TWO! The two stand off, Bate SOBATS! Axiom staggers away, Bate runs in, but Axiom arm-drags Bate and himself up and out of the ring! Fans fire up while NXT goes picture in picture.

Both men stir, and Bate stands up first. Bate follows Axiom, UPPERCUTS him, then puts him in the ring. Bate stalks Axiom, brings him up and headlocks, to bop him with a boot! Bate hits the headlock takeover, but Axiom headscissors in return. Axiom pushes up to put on pressure, but Bate moves around. Bate headstands, pops free and has Axiom’s legs tied up. Bate goes back to the headlock but Axiom goes back to the headscissor! Bate kips free, but Axiom holds onto an arm to drag Bate back down! Axiom headscissors again, but Bate moves around again. Bate headstands, pops free and basement dropkicks!

Bate drags Axiom up by an arm and wraps Axiom up in a straitjacket stretch. Axiom endures, arm-drags free, and runs in at the corner. Axiom blocks a boot but not the KNEE! Bate goes up to FLYING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Bate keeps cool and he keeps his eyes on Axiom. Bate UPPERCUTS again and Axiom goes to rpoes. Bate whips Axiom to ropes, then catches him to a COBRA TWIST! Axiom endures the stretch, pops free and hip tosses Bate down! Axiom waistlocks, they go to ropes but Bate bucks the O’Conner, only to turn around into a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Axiom floats to get the arm, but Bate stacks him, TWO!

Axiom has Bate in a Triangle Hold, and NXT returns to single picture. Fans chant, “This is Wrestling!” as Bate deadlifts Axiom to a fireman’s carry! AIRPLANE SPIN! Fans fire up as Bate goes around and around and around, fifteen times! Bate slows down, staggers a bit, squats, and then powers up to spin MORE!! And then POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Axiom survives and Bate has to catch his breath but fans rally back up. Axiom and Bate rise, Bate spins a few more times before he throws a forearm! Axiom throws a forearm back! Bate fires forearm after forearm but Axiom hits back! Axiom kicks, Bate blocks but Axiom hops the sweep to ENZIGURI!

Bate falls over, Axiom keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Bate goes to a corner, Axiom runs in, he blocks the boot but gets another knee! Bate goes up and leaps, into an SLEEPER!! Axiom has the body scissors and fans rally up! Bate endures, fights the hold, turns over, but Axiom squeezes tighter! Bate stands, pries at the hold, opens it up, but Axiom waistlocks. Bate bucks the O’Conner again but Axiom kips up, into a RIGHT! But he SUPERKICKS right back! Axiom rolls Bate up but Bate sits on the cover, TWO!!! Axiom escapes and fans are thunderous!

Underhooks, TYLER- RANA!!! Cover, TWO!!! Bate has the arms again! TYLER DRIVER 97!!! Cover, Bate wins!!!

Winner: Tyler Bate, by pinfall

A big strong win for the Big Strong Boy! “That was Awesome!” but will this earn Bate a title match on the other side of this Saturday? But Bate and the fans show Axiom respect. But then Kemp CLBOBBERS them both! And he hits Axiom with an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Kemp says he told them before, but then Bate chases Kemp off! Will Bate make sure Kemp learns European wrestling is anything but soft?


Isla Dawn speaks.

“In my land, Imbolc is the beginning of Spring. It is a time to exhale all that is behind us, and to mark new beginnings. Tonight, on the Eve of Imbolc, we purge the constraints of the past. We purify the negative energy surrounding us, and we transfigure the uninitiated into members of this house. There has always been a rage inside of you,” Alba Fyre. And she just needed a nudge to reveal it. “Shall we?” Fyre nods, and Isla says they are letting go of their unbridled passions, shed their egos, and relinquish their need for control. “These emotions no longer serve us.” Fyre repeats that, and throws water on the fire. With this, the initiation process has begun.

Isla and Fyre smile as they walk into the night. Will the darkness within Fyre grow stronger with the Wicked Witch’s influence?


Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.

McKenzie is with Trick Melo Gang, and Trick is shaking. But he’s just joking. He’s “shaking like booty meat on a Friday night.” Not because he’s scared, but because it’s cold out. “But Trick Willy can’t lie. This whole Apollo thing, I mean, I don’t know. Should I even go to Vengeance Day? He looks, he sees in the future, that’s some Cleo stuff, man!” Melo has Trick calm down. Of course Trick’s going to Vengeance Day. Apollo can stay daydreaming, but they stay scheming. McKenzie notes the match is Best 2 out of 3, so how does Melo see this playing out? Melo says everyone knows him by now, so we know how Melo sees this playing.

“Apollo needs to realize that this ain’t Jackson, that this ain’t Jordan, that these shots I take don’t ever jam.” Melo is of a different caliber! Melo took Apollo from the sidelines to the headlines. Apollo could have a top combine vertical, and his fingertips still wouldn’t reach Melo’s level. Melo tells Apollo that you can be this or that, but until you beat Melo, you can never be HIM. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be. But is Melo overlooking the wild cards in the equation?


Roxanne Perez and Toxic Attraction sit down for video interviews.

The NXT Women’s Champion is far, far away from Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne for this final interview before Vengeance Day. Vic Joseph notes Roxie is the youngest woman to ever compete in the Royal Rumble match. How did that feel for her? She was overwhelmed, and so grateful to hear her music hit in front of over 50 THSOUAND people, and make the run down the ramp she’s dreamed of for so long. It was so incredible! Jacy says, “Incredible? More like incredibly pathetic! RoXaNnE~, cOnGrAtUlAtIoNs~! YoU wErE iN tHe RoYaL rUmBlE~!” But you didn’t win! And you’re not going to WrestleMania, but to Vengeance Day, to lose your title.

Gigi says the reason Roxie lost the Rumble was cuz she got put through a table! That look on her face when she realized she got tricked was great. But it’ll all be over for Lil’ Miss Perfect real soon. Roxie says Gigi & Jacy act like they’re best friends, but Roxie knows there is a lot of truth behind what they said to each other last week. Gigi says the truth is that Roxie stands no chance at Vengeance Day. How is Roxie gonna beat them both? She has the same percent chance of winning the Triple Threat as she did winning the Rumble: ZERO! Roxie is good and all, but going against the two baddest women in NXT at the same time, she has NO chance.

Actually, Roxie says she has more of a chance- Jacy cuts her off to say that Roxie had a good run. Eight months in NXT is like a little jog. Good for her! But Roxie peaked at 21 years old. That sucks. But this Saturday, it’s all coming to an end. Roxie says it’s not. But Gigi says it is. At least Roxie can go home to Texas and tell everyone she had a “cup of coffee” in the big time. She just made one critical mistake: messing with Toxic Attraction. And look on the bright side! She can play the “What If” game! What if Roxie stayed in her lane and didn’t punch up? Roxie starts to speak but Jacy cuts her off again, telling her to shut up.

Jacy says “What if” Roxie was a good little girl and didn’t make any waves. Whether Roxie likes it or not, it’s 2v1. Gigi says Roxie’s ride is over, the 15 minutes of fame are over. Roxie storms out, and Toxic Attraction make fun of her for not being able to handle it. Vic says Toxic Attraction weren’t being fair, but Jacy says, “Who cares? After Saturday, she’ll be old news. You’re looking at the next NXT Women’s Champion right here.” Then which one will it be? Gigi says you’re looking at her! Gigi knows everyone, especially Booker, is a big fan of Roxie, and is just trying to find a crack between Toxic Attraction, but there isn’t one.

For almost two years, Toxic Attraction has controlled the NXT Women’s Division. But for the last six weeks, everyone’s been on a vacation from it. That changes on Saturday, as order will be restored when Jacy & Gigi take their rightful spot. This day has been a long time coming, Roxie is just the first one to push it to the edge. But at Vengeance Day, they course correct things back to Gigi- Er, they become NXT Women’s Champion. Jacy notices that “flub,” but before she can respond, ROXANNE POUNCES!! Roxie fires off with all the pent up anger on both of them! She TACKLES Jacy through the set!!

Fans fire up as security rushes in to stop Roxie from tearing into Toxic Attraction more! Will nothing, not even two opponents at once, stop The Prodigy from proving why she IS NXT Women’s Champion?


Stevie Turner VS Dani Palmer!

Updated, online and ready to play, the Fourth Dimensional Superstar is finally back in action! Will Stevie prove that she is always two steps ahead and two levels above? Or will Dani delete Stevie before she even gets started?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Stevie has an armlock, then wrenches Dani to wrangle her to the mat. Dani fights up, rolls, backflips and wrenches, but Stevie gets away. They go again, Stevie waistlocks but Dani switches, only for Stevie to elbow free. Stevie headlocks, Dani brings her down to a knee and handstands to slip free! Stevie avoids Dani’s headlock to BOOT, BOOT and then scrape Dani on ropes! Fans boo, Stevie runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Stevie laughs like mad and she pushes Dani down. Stevie then brings Dani up, but Dani pushes her away. Stevie kicks low, CLUBS Dani, then turns her for a HANGING NECKBREAKER!

Dani staggers to ropes, Stevie snapmares her and clamps on a chinlock. Fans rally, Dani fights up, and arm-drags free! Stevie runs back but into an elbow! Dani dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! And again! Dani keeps moving but Stevie kicks low! But Dani JAWBREAKERS back! Dani runs to THESZ PRESS! Dani rains down wild hands, thrashes Stevie around, and then drags Stevie up. Dani runs, but Stevie reels her in by her tights! Stevie whips Dani away, and BOOTS her down! Stevie hauls Dani up, TWISTING DDT!! Stevie isn’t done there, she drags Dani up, for the SIDE EFFECT! Cover, Stevie wins!

Winner: Stevie Turner, by pinfall

Stevie just rerouted Dani’s connection and has her first win in NXT! Will Stevie soon be the number one trend in wrestling?


Kiana James is on the phone.

She promises to see “Zack” there, and says, “Love you, too.” Fallon Henley then walks over and asks who she was talking to. No one, don’t worry about it. Fallon knew it! She KNEW Kiana would break Jensen’s heart!! Fallon, calm down, it’s not what you think. You don’t even know why you’re upset right now! Oh? Then who is Zack?! But then in walk the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Kayden Carter points out the #1 contenders, and how they’re not talking about their upcoming match. Katana Chance says that sounds like trouble. Kiana says sound travels fast around here. But the only sound the champs will hear on Saturday is, “And NEW…!”

Has Fallon been giving Kiana a lot to drink lately? They’ve been a team for like a week while KC Squared has been a team for over a year! Fallon says with all due respect, we all know, we all get it, Katana & Kayden are BFFs. But Saturday is the biggest match of Fallon’s life, so she is going all out. Kiana says they are going all out. Well, we’ll see about that. But either way, the titles are staying with KC Squared. Katana & Kayden head out, and Fallon gets Kiana’s attention. Stay focused for Saturday, but just know this conversation isn’t over. Fallon heads out, is she making a mountain out of a mole hill?


Charlie Dempsey VS Drew Gulak w/ Hank Walker!

The Son of the Gentleman Villain cost the Philly Stretcher and his blue collar protégé last week, so this is all about vengeance before Vengeance Day! Will Gulak lock Dempsey down? Or will the Philly Stretcher be the one getting stretched?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Gulak headlocks for a takeover. Dempsey fights up, hits a back suplex, but Gulak holds on! Gulak has control again but Dempsey headscissors. Gulak moves around, has the legs, but Dempsey keeps shoulders up in the stack. Dempsey pushes Gulak away, they stand, and Gulak facelocks. Dempsey wrenches out, wristlocks, but Gulak grinds forearms. Dempsey wrenches, Gulak gets away, and fans rally up as NXT goes picture in picture.

The two circle, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder for a test of strength. Dempsey powers Gulak down to his knees, but Gulak powers back up. They go shoulder to shoulder again and now Gulak powers Dempsey back. Dempsey bridges, but Gulak has the cover! TWO as Dempsey gets an arm up! Gulak puts that arm down, TWO as the other arm comes up! Gulak has both arms, TWO as Dempsey bridges back up! Gulak stands over Dempsey, brings him up, but Dempsey monkey flips! Dempsey rolls back to a cover, TWO as Gulak sunset flips! TWO, and Dempsey headlocks to keep Gulak down! Fans applaud as the technical exchange continues.

Gulak fights up to his feet, powers his way to a facelock, but Dempsey snap suplexes to a cover, TWO! Gulak has the facelock but Dempsey stands up again. Dempsey goes for a trip but Gulak uses that to get a cover, TWO! Dempsey fights up, Gulak facelocks, then scoops and SLAMS Dempsey into ropes! Dempsey clutches his legs but Gulak storms up. Dempsey throws body shots and uppercuts! Gulak DECKS Dempsey in return! Gulak hurries to a cover, TWO! Gulak grabs Dempsey’s legs and steps through, but Dempsey resists. Gulak still pushes through to get the deathlock, and then he gets the chinlock for a REGAL STRETCH!!

Dempsey endures, reaches out, but Gulak keeps the pressure on the hold! Dempsey still moves forward, NXT returns to single picture, and Dempsey pries the facelock away! Dempsey turns to trip Gulak into a HEEL HOOK! Gulak kicks away to get free! Dempsey UPPERCUTS, has the leg, DRAGON SCREW! Gulak clutches his knee and fans rally up again. Dempsey covers, TWO! Dempsey underhooks the arm, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Bridge, and then roll into the BUTTERFLY STRETCH! Gulak endures, fights up, but Dempsey shifts to have a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Gulak endures, Dempsey turns it to a ghost pin, TWO!

ANOTHER BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! Dempsey keeps on Gulak with a deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! “This is Wrestling!” as Dempsey brings Gulak up. Gulak wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then has the CROSSFACE CHICKEN WING! Dempsey pries free, arm-drags Gulak away, and storms up, to get the leg! Gulak slips out of the Dragon Screw, but Dempsey gets the leg again! DRAGON SCREW! And then Dempsey has the leg for a HEEL HOOK! Gulak kicks with his free leg, and he gets away! Both men rush in, Gulak blocks the forearm to LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Gulak clutches his leg and Dempsey goes to ropes. Fans rally up, Gulak headlocks, but Dempsey hits a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Gulak is hanging tough and Hank coaches him up.

Gulak rolls out to get the arms! But Dempsey rolls, stands, but Gulak spins. Into Dempsey’s CROSSFACE CHICKEN WING! Gulak moves around, but Dempsey pushes on the bad leg! Dempsey drags Gulak down, body scissors are on!

Gulak fights, gets free of the body scissors, and Hank coaches Dempsey! Gulak runs to ropes and Dempsey is sent  into Hank!! Gulak rolls Dempsey up, Gulak wins!

Winner: Drew Gulak, by pinfall

Hank is dazed, did he just get used as a pawn? Is Gulak using his own student to help him cut corners?


Von is fuming backstage.

He throws a chair at the wall, and Stone says it ain’t working. This is not working. Von throws a locker room bench, and shouts, “YA THINK?!” Stone asks a question: Why does Von have Stone managing him? Stone has been managing Von for over a year now, yet he knows nothing about Von! Who IS Von Wagner? He’s big, he growls, but so do a lot of other guys. If Von wants to get to the next level, then he has to show Stone who he is! He has to show us who he is INSIDE! Help Stone help Von! Stone storms off, will these words help unlock Von’s true potential?


Triple Threat Tag: The Dyad VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe VS Chase U!

The New Day, Pretty Deadly and Gallus are waiting as there’s still room for one more for Vengeance Day! Will Rip Fowler & Jagger Reed plant the roots of The Schism in Charlotte? Will the underestimated underdogs finally unlock their potential? Or will Andre Chase & Duke Hudson share this #TeachableMoment with everyone? We find out, after the break!

NXT returns as Malik & Edris make their entrance, followed by Chase U’s entrance. In this kind of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are legal at any given time, so Malik & Edris agree to let the other teams start. Duke and Rip circle as fans rally behind Chase U. Duke and Rip tie up, Rip knees low and whips Duke, but Duke blocks! Duke glares at Rip, reels him in and scoops to SLAM! Tag to Chase, Duke whips Rip and Chase drop toeholds for the “LET’S GO~!” ELBOW! Chase covers, TWO! Chase drags Rip up but Rip gets away to the third corner. Rip CHOPS Edris as part of the tag! Edris steps in and he circles with Chase.

Chase and Edris shake hands, then tie up. Edris wrenches, steps over, then arm-drags, but Chase blocks to step over and La Magistrol! ONE, but Edris wrangles Chase for a La Magi- NO, Chase blocks it to have a cover, TWO! Edris and Chase stand off, and Chase says that was a teachable moment! Fans cheer but Edris rushes in.

Rip smothers Chase, has another cover, TWO! Rip and Reed are upset but the ref says his count is fair. Rip UPPERCUTS Chase in the back, then clamps on with another clutch. Fans rally, Chase fights up, but Rip ripcords to back elbow! Rip then suplexes, but Chase blocks it! Rip CLUBS Chase down, taunts Duke, but Chase fights up. Chase suplexes Rip! Fans fire up while both men are down! Reed tags in to run and DROPKICK Duke!

Reed turns around, into a BIG back drop! But no Duke means no tag! Thea Hail coaches Duke up but Rip tags back in. Rip goes after Chase but Chase throws him out! Malik & Edris call to Chase, they’re his only option! Chase runs over, but then The Dyad trips Malik & Edris up! Chase has no one, and turns around into a throat chop! Tag to Reed, the Dyad sets Chase up for a POWERBOMB BACKSTABBER!! Cover, TWO!?! Chase survives and everyone is shocked!

Winners: Chase U, by pinfall (join the NXT Tag Team Championship Fatal 4 Way)

Thea is the most excited of all as the red ‘n’ black now get to compete for some gold! But then we see Gallus appear in the perch and Pretty Deadly appear on stage, with the New Day on the tron! Gimme a C! H! A! S! Well, we know the rest. Congrats to Chase U! This wins means they’re going to Vengeance Day! So then, New Day will see Chase U, and Gallus, and Pretty Deadly of course. Put it together for all these teams! But will this road game be a big win for Chase U? Will Pretty Deadly redo the #SidePlateCheck? Will Gallus Boys be on top? Or will ya bois the NEW~ DAY~, still be your W, W, E, N, X, T, Tag, Team, CHAMPIONS~?

My Thoughts:

Now this was a go-home episode! No need for filling/wasting time with recaps, just give us promos, action and other stuff to hype up what’s coming. Good promo from Apollo Crews, and good response from Trick & Melo. Apollo’s vision seems to foreshadow Oro Mensah being his back-up, as I’m pretty sure I saw his dreadlocks in that silhouette. At the same time, even if someone were to cancel out Trick, that doesn’t guarantee Apollo wins. Melo could win one fall cuz of Trick, Apollo could win one fall cuz Oro cancels out Trick, and then the third fall is truly 1v1. I’m leaning towards Melo since he makes sense as the next challenger to THE NXT Championship.

Speaking of, we got a pretty good promo vignette for Bron VS Waller in the steel cage. And from how they’re talking about it, this is going to be a No Escape Steel Cage match, where the door isn’t an option and climbing the walls won’t win it for you. I am all for that, and I think all Steel Cage matches should be like that to get rid of some of the more overused tropes of a Steel Cage match. Good interview promos from Roxie, Gigi & Jacy, and while part of me wanted Roxie to explode on Toxic Attraction verbally, her going after them directly was just as good. Roxie really should show she has grit, but I feel like her initiating the brawl is tantamount to her standing tall. I hope this doesn’t put the go-home math against her, she only just got that belt.

Stevie Turner’s first match back was pretty good, and I’m actually happy to see they came up with a completely kayfabed chat box for her entrance, as I imagined last week. Good promo from Isla & Fyre to establish that they’re a team now. I was sensing there’d be something building towards Valentine’s Day in a couple weeks, and I think this whole “Who is Zack and what is he to Kiana?” is gonna be the thing. Kiana is gonna reveal that’s like her brother and Fallon’s gonna feel dumb for getting protective of Jensen’s feelings. But with that, I don’t think they win the tag titles at Vengeance Day. That should probably be Isla & Fyre.

We also got a real good “NXT Investigates” promo from McKenzie to point out just how many suspects there really are in the Whodunnit of Lyons’ parking lot attack. Indi VS Stark was a good match to play off that, but I’m starting to wonder if Valentina Feroz did it. Feroz seems like the least likely, so that’d be quite the twist. Given her talk with Elektra Lopez about doing underhanded things, Feroz said she couldn’t do anything to Wendy Choo because Wendy’s a friend. But Feroz and Lyons have no connections, so Feroz could attack her from behind with no problems.

Good promo from Wes Lee, Dijak, Von and Stone to set up Dijak VS Von. That was a good match, but of course Dijak won to have momentum going into the North American title match. I still think Wes wins, but what was really interesting to come out of this was Stone getting fired up telling Von to bring out some personality. Is Von going to suddenly have a gimmick? I can’t even be sure what that’d be. Also, good promo from Tony D and Stacks. I thought Von was gonna be the big guy Stacks went after but then this happened, so maybe Stacks calls out Odyssey Jones or Quincy Elliot to give one of those guys some screen time. And also a win, because I feel like Stacks is gonna bite off more than he can chew.

We also got some great technical wrestling singles matches. Gulak VS Dempsey was not as good as Bate VS Axiom, but I like the detail that Hank takes the hit to tip things in Gulak’s favor. Hank might confront Gulak on that move, and we get closer to Heel Gulak. Then we got just a hilarious and very meta promo out of Bate and Axiom referencing A-Kid. Kemp sticking his nose in things is fine, he needs something to do and honestly should’ve had more time in NXT UK. Bate winning makes sense, he’s also back and needs some momentum. Kemp’s blindside attack definitely earns him a match with both of them in turn, probably winning against Axiom but losing to Bate.

Really good stuff out of the NXT Tag Division tonight, too. The opener of Creeds VS Indus Sher was good, though I feel like maybe they’re going for too real of a fight feel. Julius just came off like he forgot the match flow they discussed. But it was a clever move to have Indus Sher win because of the mishap with Ivy. This will add something more to the Diamond Mine story, and Indus Sher really should be climbing up the rankings. Especially with everything going on in the title story.

Great Triple Threat main event, and as great as all three teams are, it makes sense Chase U won. New Day is Face, Gallus and Pretty Deadly are Heel, so there needed to be another Face team. There’s intrigue in the Chase U story and it can play out in the Fatal 4. And Indus Sher being Heels, if New Day retains (or even if Chase U wins), that’d be a great program going to Stand & Deliver.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/31/23)

Orlando stays Dark!



Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!

As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!


  • Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
  • Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
  • Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
  • Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
  • Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
  • The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
  • Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.


A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.

And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.
