Fallon Henley VS Isla Dawn!

The Cowgirl just came to the UK for a good time, but the Wicked Witch tried to creep on her. Fallon doesn’t play the spooky game, but will she start to believe in magic? Or will she give the enchantress a country style butt kicking instead?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock, then break. Isla reaches for Fallon’s hair but Fallon slaps Isla’s hands away. They tie up again and Isla pulls hair! The ref reprimands, Isla lets off to kick and uppercut! Isla talks trash but Fallon ROCKS her back with forearms! Isla headbutts low, whips but Fallon reverses to back elbow and mule kick! Fallon runs, ducks the elbow and blocks the hip toss, but Isla blocks Fallon’s shoot around to the back. Isla facelocks, Fallon endures and powers up, then wrenches out to WRING the arm! Isla ends up on ropes, Fallon slides out to ROCK her with a forearm!

Fans fire up with Fallon and she gets in to cover, TWO! Fallon keeps cool but Isla throws body shots. Fallon CLUBS Isla, scoops her, but Isla slips out to CLAW Fallon’s back! Isla whips, Fallon reverses and runs in at the corner, but Isla slips out to the apron. Isla shoulders into Fallon, bumps her off buckles, then steps in to EuroUpper. The ref counts but Isla gets in Fallon’s face while choking her! Isla lets off to then SHINING WIZARD! Isla snapmares Fallon to UPPERCUT her in the back! Fallon grits her teeth but Isla runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Isla is annoyed and she clamps onto Fallon to dribble her off the mat.

Fans rally up, Isla drags Fallon up but Fallon throws body shots! Fallon ducks the haymaker to waistlock, but Isla bucks the O’Conner Roll. Fallon ducks the roundhouse, kicks back, but Isla hits low again. Fallon comes back with a sunset flip, TWO! Fans fire up but Isla knees Fallon low and throws her down by her hair! Isla stomps Fallon, drags her around and clamps onto the shoulders. Fallon resists the chinlock, Isla CLAWS her again, and gets the arms for a straitjacket stretch! Fallon endures as Isla digs a knee in, and fans rally up again. Fallon fights the hold, but Isla thrashes her around and JAMS the knee back in!

Isla bends Fallon back against the knee, but Fallon still fights up to her feet! Fallon backs Isla into buckles but Isla holds on! The ref counts, Fallon RAMS Isla into buckles and arm-drags free! Isla comes back to ROCK Fallon but Fallon ROCKS Isla! Fallon fires off and DECKS Isla! Fallon runs to FACEBUSTER! Fans fire up again and Fallon runs at the corner, big back elbow! Fallon keeps moving and she LARIATS Isla! Isla goes to ropes, Fallon pursues, and Isla YANKS Fallon into the ropes! ROUNDHOUSE! HALF NELSON SLAM! Cover, Isla wins!

Winner: Isla Dawn, by pinfall

Fallon fought hard but she couldn’t stop the Wicked Witch! Will Isla use this win to conjure up a new path to the NXT UK Women’s Championship?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

She says hello and they ask her how she’s enjoying her time in the UK. Sarray says she is enjoying being her very much. Any words for her fans in Japan? Sarray speaks in Japanese to say hello, and that she is enjoying the UK. She’s seen the London Bridge, the Harrods, but then she spots Meiko Satomura and asks her about that match challenge. Meiok has yet to actually respond. Please, accept her challenge. Meiko says okay. They’ll have their match! “But be prepared.” The Warrior of the Sun gets her match with the Final Boss, but will she still enjoy her time in the UK afterward?

 

Amale watches back last week’s episode.

Namely, her match against Stevie Turner, which she won. But that’s only secondary to Blair Davenport being on commentary, telling Amale that she’ll have no hope against her. NXT UK Media asks Amale her response. “You want to know my thoughts on Blair’s commentary? I’ll show you exactly what I think about it.” Amale storms out and asks around for Blair. She’s pointed in the right direction, and Amale barges in on Blair’s own little interview. Amale brings up the match of Amale VS Turner. Blair asks what Amale thought about her on commentary. Maybe she’s got a second career in wrestling.

Amale says she knows exactly what Blair is up to! Amale won’t give Blair the satisfaction of getting under her skin. She will keep all this anger for Blair waiting for the ring. See you then. Blair shrugs and says “Whatever.” Now go, she’s busy. Will The French Hope unleash her fury on the gothic terror? Or will Amale learn to #BewaretheHeir?

 

Josh Morrell VS Dave Mastiff!

#TurboTerry finally got a win in NXT UK off of Primate, who seemed a bit overzealous without Eddie Dennis in charge. However, Morrell now runs into an even bigger challenge in The Bomber! Will Mastiff be a brick wall for Morrell’s new momentum? Or can Morrell defy expectations again and get his second win?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Mastiff headlocks. Morrell endures, fans rally and sing, and Morrell brings Mastiff to a knee so he can handstand and walk out of the headlock! Fans cheer and Mastiff seems a bit surprised. They reset, tie up, Mastiff gets an arm and wrenches. Mastiff hits an ELBOW BREAKER, then wristlocks. Morrell endures again, rolls, cartwheels, and handsprings to then go up and break free! Mastiff nods, he respects the ability. The two go again, Morrell gets around to headlock, but Mastiff powers out. Mastiff runs Morrell over and things speed up.

Morrel tries to hip toss but Mastiff easily turns that around, only for Morrell to handspring through Mastiff’s hip toss. Things keep moving, Morrell ducks and goes up, but Mastiff holds him up. Mastiff throws Morrell but he flips and lands on his feet! But Mastiff blocks the lariat, CLUBS Morrell on the back, then shoves Morrell to the ropes to catch him on the rebound, BIG back suplex! Morrell writhes and fans rally up. Mastiff looms over Morrell, drags him up, and CLUBS him back down! Mastiff drags Morrell back up, CLUBS him again, and then reels him in for a snapmare. Mastiff clamps his hands right onto Morrell’s bad shoulders!

Morrell endures as Mastiff leans on the hold. Morrell throws an elbow but Mastiff dribbles him off the mat! Fans rally, Mastiff drags Morrell up again, and he has those shoulder claws back in. Morrell throws a heavy body shot, Mastiff throws him down again, but Morrell handsprings through that! Morrell boots from the corner but Mastiff blocks, so Morrell kicks Mastiff with both feet! Morrell goes up, leaps, but into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Cover, TWO! Morrell is still in this and Mastiff is surprised. Fans rally up again as Mastiff drags Morrell up. Mastiff whips and RAMS into Morrell with a low headbutt!

Morrell sputters but stands back up, and Mastiff DECKS him with a forearm! Mastiff eggs Morrell on as Morrell gets up again. Mastiff DECKS Morrell again, stalks him, then drags him up again. Mastiff whips, but Morrell goes up to sunset flip! Mastiff is too big, he YANKS Morrell right up and into a GERMAN SUPLEX! But Morrell lands on his feet again! Morrell SHOTGUNS Mastiff, but Mastiff comes back! Morrell avoids the senton! And STANDING CORKSCREW MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Mastiff survives but fans fire up as Morrell runs in and SHOTGUNS him out of the ring! Mastiff staggers up, Morrell builds speed and FLIES! Fosbury Flop at the ramp!

Fans are fired up for “NXT! NXT!” as Morrell gets back to his feet. Morrell drags Mastiff up but that’s a lot of dead weight. Morrell puts Mastiff in at 5 of 10, and then hurries up onto the apron. Mastiff stands, Morrell slingshots to go up and over! Morrell runs in, into a FLAPJACK! Mastiff deadlifts to POWERBOMB! And then deadlifts again, for the ROLLING SENTON! Cover, TWO!?! Morrell survives and shocks everyone! Fans are fired up for Morrell but Mastiff is grinning. Mastiff seems to like the toughness form Morrell, but he fireman’s carries again. Morrell flails, but Mastiff still hits ROLLING SENTON, and a BACK SENTON! Cover, Mastiff wins!

Winner: Dave Mastiff, by pinfall

The Bomber finally puts Morrell away, but it was quite the fight! Mastiff helps Morrell up to show he at least won Mastiff’s respect. Will Morrell be able to make a comeback in his next match?

 

Sha Samuels and Noam Dar sit in the back.

The East End Bookie is of course bummed over what happened last week, because those who bet on Mark Coffey keep coming to collect! “It’s never-ending!” He’s got kids, y’know! Three of ’em! Sha doesn’t even remember placing bets for some of these guys! Dar keeps trying to plead Sha’s case but it’s no good. And of course, Wolfgang’s in on the action, too. Sha is brought to tears over this! And also to red faced rage. Does he even have the funds to cover all this?

The day finally ends, Sha and Dar have nothing left but each other. But while they can make more money, how are they supposed to get the Heritage Cup back? Sha says Dar let them down. And the flask is empty because they can’t afford it! Dar takes his cut of what’s left and goes. A couple hours later, after Sha’s dozed off from despair, someone comes knocking. Even Johnny Saint has come to collect?! Well, Sha’s probably got… HE RUNS FOR IT! Will the NXT UK GM get his payout one way or another?

 

The NEW NXT UK Tag Team Champions have a photoshoot.

Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen pose with their titles and are still feeling great. NXT UK Media asks them if they heard about the challenge put forward by Mark Andrews & Wild Boar. They did, and they have a response. They respect the hell out of Andrews & Boar, and it would be an honor to face one of the best teams in the UK. Briggs says the UK crew took real good care of them, Briggs & Jensen owe them. One night out on the pub is on them, and that title match is on, too. See y’all in the ring, boys! Will these good ol’ American boys have another good time in London? Or will the UK tag titles come home through South Wales Subculture?

 

Emilia McKenzie VS Nina Samuels!

Meiko Satomura’s protégé has felt more like a third wheel with Sarray around, but she wasn’t going to let the Leading Lady turn her into a buzzworthy headline. Will Nina end up on the front page with a win over the pouting protégé? Or will #SuplexMillie turn her into old news?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and fans sing for Millie. But Nina pulls hair to put Millie in the corner. The ref counts, Nina lets go of hair to RAM her shoulder in. Nina lets off but Millie BOOTS her, then goes up to FLYING RANA! Fans fire up and Nina staggers, but Millie runs in to RAM her shoulder in! And again, and again! Nina shoves Millie away, then goes up to sunset flip! TWO, Nina hurries to throw Millie down by her hair! And again! The ref reprimands, Nina stops and she stomps Millie down. Nina brings Millie up but Millie blocks the buckle bump to give Nina the bump!

Millie stomps Nina, the ref counts and Millie lets off, only for Nina to BOOT Millie down! Nina kicks Millie to ropes, brings her up and CHOKES her on the ropes! Nina makes Millie smile with the fishhooks but the ref counts. Nina lets off, then pulls Millie back against the ropes with a motorcycle stretch! The ref counts again, Nina lets off at 4 to dropkick Millie in the back! Roll up, TWO! Nina stomps Millie around but fans rally up. Millie gets to ropes, Nina drags her up and talks trash to TOSS her by her hair! The ref reprimands again, Nina drags Millie up to TOSS by her hair again! Nina shakes off the hair in her hands before storming after Millie.

Nina stomps Millie, the ref counts, but Nina fires off more! Nina stops at 4, fans boo, but Nina just storms back up on Millie. Millie throws body shots, but Nina DECKS her! Nina shocks herself, and hurries to cover, ONE!! Millie grabs at the ropes but Nina stands her up in the corner. Nina puts Millie up top, talks trash and SLAPS Millie! Nina soaks up the heat from the fans, but Millie avoids the step-up kick! Nina is stuck up top with Millie, and Millie fires off elbows and hammer fists! The ref counts, Millie shoves Nina to the floor! Nina manages to land on her feet, and she hurries back up, only for Millie to ROCK her!

Millie drags Nina in to throw Nina by her hair! And again! Millie is unleashing that fury Meiko told her to use, and Millie hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Millie snarls, watches Nina flounder, and runs in at the corner, but Nina moves! Millie POSTS herself, Nina rolls her up, TWO!! Nina is shocked but she hurries to drag Millie up. Millie SLAPS Nina back! Nina is furious, but she swings into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up and Millie SPEARS Nina down! Cover, Millie wins!

Winner: Emilia McKenzie, by pinfall

That “killer instinct” finally kicks in, and Millie gets a big win! Will she be waiting on the other side of the coming showdown between Satomura and Sarray?

 

Andy Shepherd joins Ilja Dragunov and Wolfgang for a sit-down interview.

Andy says ahead of next week’s huge NXT UK Championship match, he wanted to bring together challenger and champion. He welcomes them and thanks them for joining him. “There has been a lot of talk about respect between the both of you.” Wolfgang, what is it you respect most about Dragunov? Wolfgang says he’s been here since day one, and he’s seen everybody who has held that title. It’s been something Wolfgang’s wanted since 2017. He was there at the first ever tournament, he made it to the semifinals, and he was there when Dragunov took the title off someone no one thought possible in the Ring General. That deserves respect.

But what Wolfgang really respects most is that Dragunov will take on anyone. Dragunov was the one to call Wolfgang out for this title. How can Wolfgang not respect that? The Czar says he gives that respect back 100%. There is a reason he chose Wolfgang. Dragunov doesn’t think Wolfgang gets the credit he deserves these last few years. There would be no Ilja Dragunov without people like Wolfgang! Andy says that, just as Wolfgang said, Wolfgang has seen all of Dragunov’s title defenses. The list is a who’s who of NXT UK and beyond. Does Wolfgang believe he can do what none of those men could? Can Wolfgang take this title from Dragunov?

Wolfgang will tell us exactly why he can do that. Dragunov’s never been in the ring with Wolfgang. Dragunov doesn’t really know what Wolfgang’s capable of. And when Wolfgang gets in that ring with him, Dragunov will realize that asking Wolfgang for this match may have been the biggest mistake he’s ever made. Dragunov says it wouldn’t have made sense to challenge Wolfgang if Wolfgang didn’t have that state of mind. This is a chance for Dragunov to see “the true Wolfgang,” because he has seen Wolfgang hiding. Wolfgang is in the shadow of Gallus, and Dragunov feels sorry for him. He means that. Because Wolfgang isn’t just some guy in Gallus, he’s a lion!

Dragunov wants Wolfgang to look at himself. Wolfgang is part of something, but when does he get to shine? Wolfgang says, “497 days, I was a champion alongside Gallus.” Yes, that was a tag team championship. But it is very different to stand alone. Wolfgang will face Dragunov alone, and Dragunov hopes Wolfgang will rely on himself when Dragunov looks inside him. Wolfgang says the UK title already belongs to Gallus. Dragunov says the title belongs to “those who are willed to fight against anything. Being injured but you continue to go.” Wolfgang says there’s a fine line between bravery and stupidity. He sees this as doing Dragunov a favor.

Wolfgang says he will take away the responsibility Dragunov has, and will take the weight off Dragunov’s shoulders to carry this brand on his back, and carry NXT UK forward with Gallus Boys on top. Well, then Wolfgang will have to bite very, very hard to get even a piece of what the NXT UK Champion, UNBESIEGBAR, the Czar, Ilja Dragunov, is made of. Both men stand up and stare down. The main event of next week is coming, who leaves knowing this is their kingdom?

 

Trent Seven VS Sam Gradwell!

The “Savior of British Sports” tore down Moustache Mountain and everything he had, all so he could be the center of attention. But that just makes him the “absolute dirt worst” in the eyes of Gradwell and everyone who used to respect Seven. Will the Thunderstorm rattle Seven’s kidneys, wobble his jowls, and slap some sense into him? Or will Seven do anything and everything he can to deny Gradwell that satisfaction?

The bell rings and Seven throws his towel at Gradwell to then BOOT him! Seven says “I am the best around here!” and runs in at Gradwell, only to be thrown out! Gradwell then DIVES! Direct hit and Seven hits barriers! Gradwell whips Seven into more barriers, then keeps him from running away! Gradwell CHOPS Seven, stalks him around the way, and keeps him from escaping with big forearm shots! Fans taunt Seven for being a “COWARD! COWARD!” and Gradwell ROCKS Seven with a haymaker. Seven slides into the ring, but Gradwell trips him up and drags him out! Gradwell scoops and SLAMS Seven on the floor!

Seven writhes while Gradwell checks his knee brace. Gradwell drags Seven up, puts him in the ring, and fans chant “You Deserve It!” But Seven CHOPS Gradwell at the ropes, and short arm LARIATS Gradwell down! Gradwell is on the floor and Seven soaks up the heat. Fans rally, “We Want Tyler!” but Seven wags his finger. Gradwell rises at 6 of 10, and slides in at 8! Seven eggs Gradwell on and Gradwell rushes in, but into a full nelson and DRAGON SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Seven is annoyed with Gradwell and he CLUBS Gradwell down. Seven kicks Gradwell around, KICKS him in the side, then CLUBS him down again!

Seven drags Gradwell up while claiming HE is British Strong Style. Fans chant “No You’re Not! No You’re Not!” but Seven KICKS Gradwell, then parodies the Bruiserweight’s favorite pose. Gradwell eggs Seven on, Seven kicks him, but Gradwell throws body shots. Seven CHOPS, Gradwell throws a body shot, but Seven CHOPS and CHOPS! Gradwell snarls and takes those CHOPS! Fans fire up with Gradwell, Seven can’t even get Gradwell with the feint! So Seven just kicks Gradwell’s bad knee! But Gradwell wrenches out of the DDT to ROCK Seven with forearm after forearm! Seven falls for Gradwell’s feint! BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Fans rally and Gradwell runs in at Seven to forearm smash! Gradwell whips Seven corner to corner the other way, Seven bounces off into a back drop! Fans again chant “You Deserve It!” as Gradwell clotheslines Seven out of the ring! Seven tumbles and Gradwell goes out after him. Gradwell FLYING FOREARMS off the apron! Direct hit, but Gradwell does have to check his leg. Gradwell drags Seven up to throw down fists, the ring count is 5 of 10, and Gradwell puts Seven in at 6. Seven runs to DIVE! Direct hit into the barriers from that huge Low-pe! Fans fire up and Seven soaks it all in. Seven then lets his hair down and he kicks Gradwell around.

Seven puts Gradwell in, taunts the fans, and then gets on the apron. Gradwell CHOPS Seven! Gradwell climbs up the corner, drags Seven up to join him and CLUBS away on his back. But Seven shoves Gradwell down! Gradwell holds his bad knee, hobbles back up and he ROCKS Seven with a haymaker! And CHOP him again! Gradwell climbs up again and he stands on the top rope, for the underhooks, SUPER BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!! Fans are thunderous, “This is Awesome!” Gradwell covers, TWO!! Seven bails out and wants to retreat again, but Gradwell runs him down at the ramp! Gradwell drags Seven back to ringside, but Seven picks him up, SHINBREAKER on the steel steps!!

Fans boo but Seven puts Gradwell in the ring. Gradwell clutches that knee, but Seven throws hands! Seven takes away the knee brace! Seven stomps Gradwell, gets the bad leg, and then kicks away on the thigh! Seven ties up the legs into a FIGURE SEVEN!! Gradwell grabs Seven’s beard to sit him up, but Seven SLAPS Gradwell! Gradwell SLAPS Seven back And again, and again! Gradwell still endures the hold, turns things over, now Seven endures! Seven can’t reach Gradwell but he crawls for the rope, ROPEBREAK! The ref undoes the hold and fans are thunderous as both men slowly rise.

Gradwell gets Seven but Seven spins, Gradwell ducks the backhand to STO!! Cover, TWO!! Seven survives but the fans still rally. Gradwell sits Seven up to rain down fists! Gradwell then reels Seven in but that bad leg is slowing him down. Gradwell fireman’s carries but Seven rakes the eyes, and CHOP BLOCKS the bad leg! Ripcord, SEVEN STAR LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!?!? Seven is shocked but the fans are loving this! Seven snarls and he grabs the knee brace. Fans boo but Seven puts the brace on his arm! Seven stands Gradwell up, ripcord, but Gradwell ducks to ripcord and ROLLING ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Seven survives and Gradwell is beside himself!

Fans rally up again, and now Gradwell looks at his knee brace. Gradwell picks it up, the ref says not to do it, but Gradwell is furious. Seven wants mercy, but then the ref grabs the brace from Gradwell! Seven LOW BLOWS Gradwell while the ref puts the brace outside! Ripcord, SEVEN STAR LARIAT!! Cover, Seven wins!!

Winner: Trent Seven, by pinfall

Seven won, because he IS the absolute dirt worst! But Seven isn’t satisfied with beating Gradwell, he wants to HURT Gradwell! But wait! TYLER BATE is here!! He runs in through the crowd, so Seven runs away through the crowd! The Big Strong Boy is back for vengeance on the man who betrayed him! Will Bate bury Seven in the rubble of Moustache Mountain?


My Thoughts:

A great episode here, and great stuff going into the following weeks. I thought we were supposed to already be getting Meiko VS Sarray for the NXT UK Women’s Championship with last week’s promo, so this week’s promo was technically unnecessary, but still delivered well enough. Good promo from Amale and Blair to set up a match, and that’ll be good stuff. Pretty sure Blair wins, though, so that she can go after the title again. And NXT UK is really good at those sit-down interview promos, Dragunov and Wolfgang had a very good exchange, and their match coincides with the go-home week for SummerSlam, so that’s going to be a lot of great programming.

We also got a hilarious bit from Sha and Dar, where just about everyone in NXT UK bet on Mark Coffey, even Johnny Saint. Very good match from Fallon and Isla, and that was a bit of a surprise that Isla won given how the rest of these NXT 2.0 VS NXT UK matches have gone. At the same time, it is better that NXT UK isn’t just being eaten alive by NXT 2.0, fans need to see NXT UK on par or else they won’t care about anyone who gets moved over from UK to the States. Great match from Morrell and Mastiff, but I figured Mastiff would win. Morrell is a great talent, though, and with Jack Starz hurt, Morrell might end up another honorary Bomber to have something to do as a story.

Good promo from Briggs & Jensen to accept the challenge from Andrews & Boar. Briggs & Jensen got their first defense done with Pretty Deadly and someone in the UK can win these belts back, but I don’t see it being Andrews & Boar. At this point, that team is still new, we need a little more time to see how those two work as a team, and then maybe they can get the belts off another team. Good match from Millie VS Nina, but it makes sense Millie wins here. Millie needs to get back on an upward trajectory if she’s to ever challenge for the title. And of course, we got an awesome main event out of Seven VS Gradwell. Again, of course Seven cheats to win, but what a great moment for Bate to show up and scare Seven off like that. That grudge match is coming, it is going to be wild.

My Score: 8.4/10

Mitchell’s WWE Raw Results & Report! (9/26/22)

Bianca’s the readiEST Raw Women’s Champion!

Published

on

WWE Raw 2022

Damage Control looks to do some damage!

With Bayley coming after the Raw Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules, Bianca Belair looks to remove a pawn from play in Iyo Sky!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Bianca Belair w/ Asuka & Alexa Bliss VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control; Bianca wins.
  • Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio; Rey wins.
  • Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy; Kevin & Gargano win.

  • Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day; Riddle wins.

PLAY BY PLAY

Bianca Belair w/ Asuka & Alexa Bliss VS Iyo Sky w/ Damage Control!

The RawEST Women’s Champion has the Empress of Tomorrow and the Five Foot Fury backing her up because we all know DMG CTRL doesn’t roll alone! Bianca gets the mic to say, “Y’know, Bayley, I really considered coming out here and challenging you again tonight. I mean, why wait for Extreme Rules? But then I remembered that you would never make this just about you and I. And even if you did come out here and accepted my challenge, it wouldn’t be you alone. I learn from my mistakes, and it was not about to be three on one again, especially not after last week.”

Bayley could’ve faced Alexa 1v1 but no. Iyo & Dakota had to interfere again because Bayley can’t fight her battles alone. So Bayley, Bianca will say this: If Bayley wants the title at Extreme Rules, then good luck. Because her girls will be watching Bayley’s girls to make sure this stays between the two of them. But here comes DMG CTRL makes their way out. Bayley thought Bianca would’ve learned her lesson last week. This will never be just about the two of them because it is bigger than the two of them. Bayley wouldn’t expect the fans to understand, either.

Bianca was groomed, handpicked and trained to be a champion. But those like DMG CTRL had to groom themselves, train themselves, and dreamt about this since they were 12 years old! Bayley said she would take over the WWE and that is what she’s doing! Yes, Bianca is in this position, she’s thriving, she’s accomplished all these things, but she was placed, picked, chosen. “Girl… Uh-uh.” Bianca has earned everything, nothing was handed to her. She’s here because she’s been showing up and showing out. Where’s Bayley been? Rehabbing?

Now, Bianca is sorry Bayley got hurt but she’s not sorry Bayley came back to Bianca as champion. Bianca will not belittle herself to go down to Bayley’s level. Bayley tells fans to shut up! She WAS injured, she DID get hurt. She couldn’t even walk 10 months ago, but she taught herself how to walk again, and how to run again. And Bayley pinned Bianca at Clash at the Castle! Something NO ONE had done in over 300 days! So yes, Bayley was injured, that’s why she wasn’t here. So fall in line like everyone else!

Bianca says no no no. Last time Bianca checked, Bayley WAS here when Bianca reached the top of her game. When Bianca main evented WrestleMania, Bayley WAS here. And the last 1v1 match these two had, Bianca KOD’d Bayley onto a ladder. Bianca gets it, though. She understands why Bayley returned with back-up. It’s because Bayley wasn’t ready to face a champion like Bianca alone. Bayley says, “Y’know what?” But then fans taunt and boo and that upsets Bayley.

“We’re not talking about the past, okay? The past is the past and I’m sick of you running your mouth.” But Bayley just got a great idea! At Extreme Rules, she feels like winning the Raw Women’s Championship in a LADDER MATCH. Fans cheer that ide and Bianca even smiles. Consider the ante up. But since Bianca can’t have Bayley, she’ll get extreme with Iyo tonight! Let’s go! Iyo nods and hands her belt over to Kai. She calls for the ref while the others exit, and the bell rings! For Iyo to turn around into a SHOTGUN dropkick!

Bianca kips up and fans fire up as Iyo bails out! DMG CTRL regroups but Bianca wants the Evil Genius to get back in, while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Bianca CLUBS away on Iyo in a corner. Bianca whips corner to corner, Iyo reverses and runs in but Bianca puts her on the apron. Bianca clinches but avoids the haymaker! Bianca waistlocks to bring Sky back into the ring, for a SLAM! Bianca keeps hold of Sky and fans rally up. Bianca ripcords Sky to then run her over with a shoulder! Bianca drags Sky up and TOSSES her across the ring! Sky gets up, and Bianca TOSSES her the other way! Sky gets to a corner, Bianca runs in and RAMS her shoulder in!

Bianca digs her shoulder in, then carries Sky! But Sky sunset flips, only for Bianca to stay up and drag Sky up. Sky dodges, tilt-o-whirls, but Bianca blocks it for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Sky ends up in another corner. Bianca climbs up to rain down fists. But Sky slips out to trip Bianca up with her hair! Sky fires off on Bianca now but lets off as the ref counts. Sky sweeps the legs and digs her boots in, to then hit a SWINGING METEORA! Cover, TWO!

Sky drags Bianca up and whips her to ropes. Bianca reverses, but Sky reverses back to hook Bianca up for an IRON OCTOPUS! Bianca endures, fights around, pries Iyo off but Iyo sunset flips, TWO! Bianca ends up in a corner now, but she dodges Sky and ROCKS her with a forearm! Bianca runs in to CLOBBER Sky! Sky goes to a corner, Bianca goes up to rain down fists! Fans count along, all the way to TEN! Sky tries to trip Bianca up again but Bianca kicks her away! Bianca flips up and over, then DECKS Sky! Cover, TWO! Bianca is frustrated but she looms over Sky.

Bianca drags Sky up, torture racks, but Sky fights with elbows! Sky swings but into another waistlock! Sky fights the lift, throws some elbows, but Bianca holds on tight! Sky keeps fighting, and she HOTSHOTS Bianca in the ropes! Sky then hits a DRIVE-BY DROPKICK and Bianca hits POST! Bianca flops down and DMG CTRL is loving it as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Sky has Bianca in a chinlock, but Bianca powers up! SIDEWALK SLAM! Both women are down and fans rally up. Bianca and Sky rise, Sky is on Bianca first but Bianca ROCKS Sky! Sky ROCKS Bianca, Bianca ROCKS Sky! Sky runs, Bianca dodges and follows to CLOBBER Sky! Bianca rallies and DROPKICKS Sky down! Bianca kips up, drags Sky up and CLUBS away on her! Bianca whips Sky to a corner, runs in but Sky turns things around, only for Bianca to snap suplex first! And roll through to the longEST stall, and a SLAM! Cover, TWO!

Sky survives and Bianca breathes easy again. Bianca drags Sky up, chicken wings, but Sky fights to get the ropes! Sky then switches, rolls Bianca up, TWO! Sky stands on the ponytail! Fans boo but then Bianca trips Sky up with the ponytail! HANDSPRING- NO, Sky avoids the moonsault to kick, run, QUEBRADA, but into a scoop and SLAM! HANDSPRING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!

Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Last week, when Seth Rollins attacked Matt Riddle, that helped The Judgement Day defeat him and Rey. Part of that was also Dominik daring Rey to hit him, even kneeling and begging him to do it. What is going on in Rey’s mind right now? Kevin Patrick’s a father, yeah? So he knows there’s nothing like holding your newborn child in your arms. Wanting to give them the world, watching them grow up, envisioning the kind of person they’ll become, always wanting the best for them, no matter what. Rey will always love Dom, and he will never, under any circumstances, fight him.

But last week, when Dom gave him that chance, Rey wondered what happened to the kid he raised. He could not recognize this man Dom has become. Rey knows deep down inside, this is not Dominik. It can’t be! This is Rhea manipulating Dom’s heart and mind. But Rey can’t let that sway his focus. Tonight, Rey takes on Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins, and he needs to be at his best. Rey’s had his fair share of battles with Rollins, and he knows how savage Rollins can be. Rollins wanted to do more than just injure Riddle last week.

Rey may have mercy for his own flesh and blood, but with everything going on his head right now, there is no mercy for Rollins. Will the King of Lucha be able to take out all his anger on the Visionary?

The Miz meets with security backstage.

“Alright, gentlemen. I have recruited you for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am offering a prize package worht up to one MILLION dollars, including but not limited to an exclusive cameo in the upcoming spinoff movie of the Marine franchise, gift cards accepted at most department stores, a certified pre-owned vehicle, and career advice from yours truly, which in and of itself is worth $2 million.”

Now he did not want big, bulky, muscular dumb security, he wants smart and stealthy! That is why he chose them. They are not just elite security professionals, no! They are MIZFORCE! Say it with him! “MIZFORCE!” Again! “MIZFORCE!” One more time! “MIZFORCE!” Now go! Find He Who Shall Not Be Named and make sure he is not here! GO GO GO! The guards hurry off, but will MIZFORCE find Dexter Lumis before Lumis finds Miz?

Seth Rollins VS Rey Mysterio!

The Visionary has pushed things with Matt Riddle so far, they’re going into the FIGHT PIT at Extreme Rules! Will Rollins sharpen his edge at the expense of the King of Lucha? Or will he suffer for everything Judgement Day has put Rey through instead?

Before the match, Rollins gets the mic and fans sing his song, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Rollins welcomes Edmonton to Monday Night Rollins! And he is our host for the festivities. He is a visionary, he is a revolutionary, he is Seth “FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!” And Rollins should be here as the NEW United States Champion, But the only reason he is not, that reason has a name that Rollins doesn’t even wanna say. But he is not champion now because of Matt Riddle!

Last week, Rollins had Lashley in the center of the ring, dead to rights, but Riddle made Rollins take his eye off the ball for one single second, and it cost him! Riddle has been a thorn in Rollins’ side for months, but that is the last time! In two weeks, they finish this at Extreme Rules inside… THE FIGHT PIT! Fans like the sound of that! Some even chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” But then the singing of “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” drowns that out. Rollins has to be honest, though, this past week, Rollins has heard the whispers and read the tweets. No one thinks he stands a chance!

Everyone says the Fight Pit is Riddle’s match. Rollins had to go home and take a long look in the mirror. Rollins came to the harsh conclusion that he’s SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! It doesn’t matter what kind of match it is! Cage match, Hell in a Cell, Tables, Ladders, Rollins has been in every single type of match you can imagine, and he’s won ’em all! As good as Riddle may be inside the cage, he has nothing on Rollins. Rollins has one thing Riddle will never have: his brain! His Einstein level acumen for the fight game!

Extreme Rules may be Rollins’ first time inside the Fight Pit, but he’ll tell us this. “When all the dust settles, Riddle is gonna be flat on his back, and the entire world is gonna be singing my song, calling me the King of the Fight Pit!” Fans sing again, “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Rollins knows Riddle is watching, so Riddle better take notes. Rollins is going to give “Father of the Year,” Rey Mysterio the beating he is too much of a coward to give his own son! HAHAHAHAH! But with that Rey makes his entrance! Will Rey show who’s really the coward here?

Rey DROPKICKS Rollins the moment he’s in the ring! The ref tries to stop Rey but Rollins bails out. Rollins is furious and throwing a fit, but Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Rollins puts Rey in a corner to grind his forearms in. Rollins talks trash, stomps away and digs his boot in, but the ref counts. Rollins lets off, and wipes the blood from the cut on his forehead. That’s from Rey spiking Rollins off steel steps. Rollins CLAWS Rey’s back, then he fishhooks Rey’s nose! Rollins lets off as the ref reprimands, but he ROCKS Rey to a corner. Rollins whips Rey corner to corner but Rey goes up and over then tilt-o-whirls and RANAS! Rey fires off on Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses, only for Rey to KICK him away. Rey runs but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER!

Rey writhes and Rollins seethes while fans rally. Rollins stalks Rey to ropes, drags him up and ROCKS him in the back. Rollins looms over Rey, drags Rey up and ROCKS him again. Then Rollins reels Rey in for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Rollins snarls as Rey crawls to the apron. Rollins drags Rey up but Rey counter punches! Rey fires off haymakers, slingshots up and over to a sunset flip, TWO! Rollins CLOBBERS Rey! Fans rally and duel as Rollins stalks Rey.

Rollins kicks Rey around, then kicks him to a corner. Rollins CHOPS Rey, whips him corner to corner, then runs in to forearm smash! Rey flops down and Rollins conducts the “OH~ OHH~ OHHH~!” Fans boo, too, though, and that upsets Rollins. Rey stands up, Rollins runs corner to corner, but Rey dodges! Rollins hits buckles and then Rey fires off haymakers! Rey RAMS Rollins, whips but Rollins reverses. Rey drop toeholds to send Rollins into buckles! Rey then climbs up and rains down fists on that bloody forehead! Fans count all the way to TEN, and Rey gives us some Latino Heat!

Rey follows Rollins, whips, but Rollins reverses. Rey holds ropes, elbows back then springboards, but Rollins catches him to a fireman’s carry! GUTBUSTER DROP! Rey flounders but Rollins drags him up to slide him out! Rey belly flops onto the floor and Rollins goes out after him. But here comes Dominik, with a chair! Is Dom here to attack Rollins for their past? Or is he here to watch his father suffer? Dom pats Rollins on the shoulder, so it’s the latter as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins whips Rey HARD into the corner! Dom is sitting ringside now to watch as Rollins drags Rey out onto the apron. Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, then lets off to line up a shot. Rollins BOOTS Rey into the ring! Rollins offers a fist bump, and Dom takes it! Fans boo them both but Rollins goes into the ring. Rollins tells Dom to watch this. Rollins drags Rey up to snap suplex! Uno Amigo! And then another snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Rollins drags Rey up again, gives some Latino Heat, and suplexes again, but Rey throws knees! Rey makes it a DDT!

Dom isn’t as happy watching now with Rey and Rollins both down. Rey gets up, adjusts his mask and goes to a corner. Rey climbs, but Rollins Electric Chair Lifts him off the corner! Rollins turns Rey around but Rey RANAS Rollins into the buckles! Fans fire up while both men are down again! Rey goes to the apron and fans fire up as he climbs. But Rollins ROCKS Rey first! Rollins climbs up, brings Rey up, but Rey throws body shots! Rey HEADBUTTS Rollins away, but Rollins springs right back up! Rey fights with body shots and shoves Rollins away again! Then SEATED SENTONS!

Rey keeps moving, he ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Rollins survives the sudden turnaround but Rey keeps moving. Rey slides under but Rollins catches him, only for Rey to victory roll! TWO, and Rey dropkicks Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins gets up to get Rey in position, BUCKLE BOMB! And FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Rey survives and Dom is annoyed. Rollins goes to ropes, drags himself up, and thinks what he has to do to keep Rey down. Rey flounders, Rollins aims, but Rey avoids the stomp! Rollins kicks low, but Rey fights the underhooks!

Rollins CLUBS away on Rey, gets him up, but Rey fights and RANAS Rollins out of the ring! Fans fire up and Rey builds speed to SLIDING SPLASH! Direct hit on Rollins and Dom stands up in frustration! Rey puts Rollins in the ring, hurries up the corner again, FLYING SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives and Dom sits back down. Fans taunt Dom with “Dominik’s Useless!” Rey dropkick Rollins onto ropes! Rey dials it up, but Rollins ducks the 619! Rey hurries after Rollins but Rollins shoulders in! Rollins GOURDBUSTERS Rey down!

Rollins climbs up the corner slowly, and Rey trips him up! Rey climbs up after Rollins now, fires some haymakers, then goes up to SUPER- NO! Rollins blocks the Steiner and swings Rey back up! SUPER STEINER AFTER ALL!! Rollins flounders to ropes, 619!! But Rey hit Rollins so hard, Rollins flounders to the far side of the ring! Rey hurries to the apron, and he FLYING RANAS Rollins down again! But Dom gets up and has the chair! Rey turns around to see Dom, and the ref tells Dom no. Dom drops the chair, but then dares Rey to use it now!

Fans boo, Dom is just distracting Rey! Rollins distracts the ref, RHEA RIPLEY POSTS Rey!! Dom puts Rey in the ring for Rollins to CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs as he puts Rey in a PERUVIAN NECKTIE!! Rey is OUT, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by submission

The Visionary gets to show off his new hold, not that he had to! That was a message to Riddle that Rollins can grapple just like him. But it also shows that The Judgement Day had to help Rollins out. Will The Visionary survive when he has to beat The Bro on his own? As for Rey, is there no reaching Dom anymore?

But speaking of Matt Riddle, he’s watching this backstage.

The Bro’s attention is trained on Rollins, so when someone pats him on the shoulder, he freaks out! Oh, it’s Bobby Lashley. Don’t scare him like that, bro. Didn’t think you were silent but deadly. You gotta keep your head on a swivel around here, y’know? Lashley gets it. He just wants to wish Riddle luck against Damian Priest tonight, not that Riddle needs it. And Lashley also heard what Rollins was saying about The Fight Pit. The MMA guys know what it’s like, but Rollins doesn’t. It’s either you tap out, or you get knocked out. That’s what Rollins fears, so don’t let him get away on this one.

Riddle says he’s not letting Rollins get away. Riddle will fight him, submit him, knock him out, Rollins ain’t going anywhere. Alright. One more thing: Lashley knows Riddle wanted to help Lashley last week, but he should never do that again. “My bad, Bobby.” Well, Riddle has Rollins where he wants him, so knock his teeth out! Damn straight, bro! Riddle is fired up now. Will The Bro take the fight to the Punisher before entering the Pit?

Johnny Gargano & Kevin Owens head for gorilla.

Along the way, they find one of the MIZFORCE guards knocked out cold! Is that a bad sign for The Miz?

Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy!

The Prizefighter and Johnny Wrestling have been putting Austin Theory in his place, and that doesn’t sit well with his pals, Chad Gable & Otis. “Master” Gable and #4PointOtis are waving American flags in Canada to try and make a point, but will it be homefield advantage for KO?

The teams sort out and Gargano starts against Gable. They tie up, Gable headlocks, spins and hammerlocks to a drop toehold. Gable then floats back to a headlock and grinds the hold.

The long awaited debut of #PandaExpress is a success! The Academy and Mr. MITB couldn’t stop them, will Kevin and Gargano soon find themselves heading for some gold?

AJ Styles heads to gorilla.

More MIZFORCE guards are down and out but Styles shrugs it off. Kevin Patrick finds him, though, and asks that before facing Sami Zayn, can Styles explain why he rejected Finn Balor’s offer to join Judgement Day? Has everyone forgotten what The Judgement Day did to Styles? To get respect, you gotta show respect. Styles has been on his own for a while now and… Finn appears! Finn says he comes in peace as Styles’ friend. We all know the importance of having friends around here, right?

Finn says The Judgement Day has achieved so much already. But with Styles, him and Finn together, they could change the business again! Okay, hear him out. Styles has a match with Sami Zayn, right? And Sami’s got back up in Solo Sikoa. So as a friend, the Judgement Day would like to offer Styles an olive branch. Styles says they’ll watch his back? Yeah! Styles says he can watch is own back.

Omos & MVP head to gorilla now.

The Nigerian Giant continues to dominate, just how many men will be sent to the slaughter this time?

Theory regroups with The Alpha Academy backstage.

What happened out there? He thought they were the masters of success! Where was the success? Gable says his number one guy, Otis, hasn’t been 100% since throwing down with that “moron,” Braun Strowman! If not for that two ton doofus, the Academy would’ve schooled those fools. Well y’know what, Chad? It would’ve been good to know that before he got hit in the jaw. But they gotta get even with Kevin & Gargano. Gargano’s not gonna embarrass Theory twice in a dump like Canada!

But then Theory gets a phone call. Hello? It’s for Gable. It is? Well, okay. Gable is in high demand. Hello? “A two ton doofus, huh? Bet you think you’re real funny.” Braun promises Gable he won’t be laughing next week, beause the Monster of All Monsters is coming for him in his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota! That way, they won’t have to fly Gable’s body home for his funeral! Sh-sh-shoosh please… Theory says Gable’s got this. But Otis, Gargano tried to big dog you out there and you gotta let him know who you are! What you represent! What you’re gonna do!

Next week, Otis VS Gargano, and it’ll be Gargano’s last match because of Otis! It’ll be the end of Gargano’s very short and sad career. Otis is fired up but Gable is dreading next week. Will the Academy’s teacher go into early retirement?

Finn Balor talks with Judgement Day backstage.

They all trust each other, right? Then trust him about Styles. Styles is gonna come around. Kevin Patrick walks over to ask Damian Priest if he might hold back against his former friend in Riddle tonight. Rhea asks back, “What’s with the dumbass questions?” Priest says yeah, what’s he supposed to say? Of course he’s NOT holding back. And he’s gonna have zero remorse! KP said it himself, Riddle’s a former friend. This right here, this is his crew! This is his family. Rhea’s said it time and again, the Judgement Day runs Raw! So as far as Priest is concerned, Riddle is just running his brains into the clouds like always.

Just look at this past year! Riddle spent most of it pretending to be Randy Orton! And now Rollins has Riddle so confused, Riddle thinks he’s in the UFC. “Yo, Riddle. You’re not a Viper. You’re not a cage fighter anymore. And you sure as hell aren’t my friend. Tonight like everyone else, you Riddle, will fall while the Judgement Day will rise. Nothing personal, bro.” The Judgement Day laughs, but will they have the last laugh in the end?

Sami Zayn w/ Solo Sikoa VS AJ Styles!

As he shows off, the Honorary Uce has his own official shirt! He is truly accepted into the Bloodline, but will he be able to defend their honor against the Phenomenal One? Or will Styles show that shirts don’t amount to much?

Winner: Sami Zayn, by pinfall

Getting an assist in the win, Sami really IS in the Bloodline now! Solo “The Enforcer” does his job, will he, Sami and all of the Bloodline take over WWE?

Wait, here comes The Judgement Day! And of course, Finn has a mic to say, “AJ, AJ, AJ. It pains me to see you like this, bro. And I can’t help but think that if you had accepted our offer earlier, the outcome of this match may have been a little bit different. You deserve so much better than this, AJ. You deserve it, man. So seeing as I’m a fair and generous person, I’m asking you as a friend to rise up and join the Judgement Day.” Finn offers a hand, Styles thinks for a moment, but he stands up on his own. Finn throws up the Too Sweet, maybe Styles will accept that. Styles throws up the middle finger instead!

So Finn attacks Styles! As do Priest and Dom! They mug Styles, Rhea gets a chair, and Finn puts the chair around Styles’ head! Rhea holds it in place, Finn runs up, but Finn stops short of the stomp. Finn says he could’ve ended Styles’ career, but he’s Styles’ friend. This is NOT what friends do. The Judgement Day loom over Styles, having given him the most menacing of ultimatums. Will the Phenomenal One stay a lone wolf? Or will he join the wolf pack that is The Judgement Day?

Bianca, Alexa & Asuka are having fun backstage.

They’re all excited after Bianca’s big win over Iyo Sky, and then Candice finds them! Candice hopes Bianca shuts Bayley up at Extreme Rules. Oh, Bianca definitely will. And congratulations on the debut victory! Candice thanks Bianca, but then “DING DONG! Uh, why don’t you two shut up?” Bayley says compliments are just jealousy in disguise. And bullies are just cowards in disguise. Oh, Candice’s feeling real confident after one win here, huh? They can change that. Dakota says Bayley has the title match to worry about. Candice says Dakota doesn’t.

Bayley knows Candice is new here, but DMG CTRL runs things. If Candice wants a match with Dakota, just wait for next week. And Bianca, see you at Extreme Rules. Oh, they don’t have to wait for that. Things get heated but everyone backs down. Will the Poison Pixie sting #CobraKai? Will this all explode before Extreme Rules?

Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day!

Rollins made sure Rey & Riddle didn’t win last week, but Riddle will let him off the hook until Extreme Rules. Will the Bro get his “brovenge” on the Punisher? Or will the Judgement Day just keep on rolling roughshod through Raw?

The bell rings and Riddle circles with Priest. The fans chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” and Riddle smirks. Riddle and Priest tie up, Priest puts Riddle in the corner but Riddle pushes back. They go along the ropes, into another corner, but Priest shoves Riddle down. Priest dares Riddle to come back and they circle again. They tie up, Priest puts Riddle on ropes but Riddle hops on to go after an arm! Riddle gets a HOVERBOARD, but Priest powers through to suplex! Riddle slips around to a SLEEPER!

Priest grins as he’s free, but Riddle springs to life to get the SLEEPER again! Priest scrambles to a corner, the ref counts the ropebreak, and Riddle lets off. Priest swings a back elbow but Riddle gets away. Fans cheer as the two reset and circle again. They tie up, Riddle waistlocks to headlock and hits a takeover. Priest pushes Riddle to the headscissors and holds tight. Riddle reaches out, moves around, and pushes free. Priest avoids the Penalty Kick and Riddle says it was that close. Priest shoves Riddle so Riddle shoves back. Riddle fires palm strikes but Priest bobs ‘n’ weaves to evade!

Priest swings, Riddle bobs ‘n’ weaves now! Riddle ducks Priest’s heel kick but Priest avoids the Final Flash. Riddle ducks the spin kick, but Priest blocks a kick to trip Riddle! Riddle avoids the stomps to literally kick Priest’s butt! Riddle kips up and fans fire up as Riddle dares Priest to bring it. PRiest laughs and applauds, but swings on him! Riddle catches Priest to a GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! BROTON! Cover, ONE!! Priest gets to ropes but Riddle storms up on him. Riddle CHOPS Priest, KICKS away on him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Riddle goes side to side, Priest SPIN KICKS him down!

The Judgement Day cheers but the fans boo as Priest rains down forearms! Priest paces, he drags Riddle up and says, “You’re trying to embarrass me on my birthday?!” Oh, well happy birthday, Priest. He TOSSES Riddle to a corner! But Riddle blocks the haymaker into a TRIANGLE, which he makes into a RANA that throws Priest up and out! Riddle is on the apron, Finn gets Priest out of the way, meaning Finn takes the PENALTY KICK! Riddle LEAPS at Priest, but Priest DECKS him out of the sky! Priest then suplexes for a BROKEN ARROW onto the barriers!! Riddle shouts in pain while Priest roars triumphantly, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Priest keeps Riddle down with a motorcycle stretch. Priest taunts Riddle, “You want more pain? Yeah, you want more pain.” Priest digs his knee in deeper but Riddle powers up! Priest shifts to a chinlock but Riddle fires body shots. Priest CLUBS Riddle down and grabs the arms for more of the motorcycle. Rhea wants Priest to make Riddle pay, but Riddle KANGAROO KICKS! Riddle fires off palm strikes and a BOOT! Then he shoots around, ripcords, FINAL FLASH! Priest goes to a corner, Riddle kips up and runs in to forearm smash! Riddle goes side to side, another forearm smash!

Riddle reels Priest in but Priest fights the clinch. Priest shoves Riddle down, runs at him, but into the BROSPLODER! Riddle goes up and out to PENALTY KICK! Then a FLOATING BRO ATTACK! Direct hit and both men are down! Fans fire up, Riddle stands and puts Priest in the ring. Riddle hurries in, he blocks a kick to give a kick and he gets Priest up for a POWERBOMB! Flip over to a FINAL FLASH! Cover, TWO!! Priest survives and Judgement Day breathes easier. Riddle goes to a corner, he climbs up top, but Priest SHOVES Riddle down! Riddle hits barriers!

Riddle clutches his side while Judgement Day laughs at him. Priest goes out to fetch Riddle, and he hoists Riddle up to run and RAM him into more barriers! Priest snarls as he looms over Riddle, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns one more time and Riddle has Priest up top now! Priest fights Riddle off with a HEADBUTT! Riddle falls, Priest stands up, but Riddle springs up after Priest! Riddle stands on the very top, brings Priest up with him, SUPER FISHERMAN SUPLEX!! Fans are fired up and Judgement Day is freaking out! Riddle crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Priest survives and Riddle can’t believe it! Both men slowly sit up, Priest throws a forearm! Riddle forearms back! Priest throws a body shot, and another, but Riddle CHOPS and CHOPS!

Priest torture racks Riddle but Riddle fights free. Riddle has a SPLADLE! RIDDLE WINS!

Winner: Matt Riddle, by pinfall

But Dom, Finn and even Rhea attack! They mug The Bro, and then they feed him to SOUTH OF HEAVEN! “You think you know me.” WHAT?!? The Rated R Superstar is back! Edge runs in, dodges Finn and SPEARS Dom! Edge glares at Dom but Rhea saves him by dragging him out of the ring. Finn runs in, Edge dodges him, and SPEARS Finn down!! Fans are thunderous as Edge has risen like a dark phoenix! Edge gets a mic to say, “You have tried to finish me over and over again. But I always come back! Even if it takes me nine years, I come back. And I got to come back in Edmonton! In MY country!”

Edge doesn’t quit! So Finn, Edge has a challenge for you. Extreme Rules, for the first time ever, Edge VS Finn 1v1, IN AN I QUIT MATCH!!! The Prince glares at Edge, but he seems to nod yes! Who will go to the extreme to make the other say those dreaded two words?


My Thoughts:

A great episode tonight with so much set up for Extreme Rules. Especially with basically all the matches now having a stipulation, as is the point of Extreme Rules the PPV concept. Great opening segment with the Raw Women’s Championship story, and I like that it’ll be a Ladder match between Bianca and Bayley. It won’t be about pinning or submitting, which can definitely be to Bayley’s advantage since she needed DMG CTRL to pin Bianca, and can even have them help her cheat in winning the match.

Great to see Candice LeRae now joining her husband here on Raw, and it works on multiple levels that she beat Nikki. Nikki’s been just circling a breaking point that could reset her to SAnitY Nikki. Candice also getting in on the DMG CTRL story is cool, there’s a lot of possibilities here. Speaking of Johnny Wrestling, Gargano & Kevin had a great match against Alpha Academy, and of course Theory got involved. It bites him in the butt, The Academy loses, and then we get a good segment where Gable sticks his foot in his mouth. Gable is gonna get squashed by Braun, Gargano is going to have an awesome match with Otis, but I bet Theory also gets involved with that one.

Omos crushes more jobbers, but MVP was calling out Braun, so maybe Omos goes after Braun after he’s done with Gable? Omos VS Braun has potential, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they do the ring breaking superplex spot like back in the day. Great stuff out of Miz and his “MIZFORCE,” but of course MIZFORCE was going to get taken out by Lumis. At some point, Lumis has to draw a picture to illustrate what kind of match he wants with Miz, or just what he wants with Miz period.

Great match from Styles VS Sami, showing there is cross-brand storytelling with The Bloodline. I also like that there is more blending of stories as Finn keeps trying to recruit Styles. Styles refuses and pays for it, and then we get a great match between Riddle and Priest. Riddle winning with the Spladle is great because it keeps this going while still giving Riddle momentum going into the Fight Pit. Edge making his return is great, and him challenging Finn to an I Quit is wild. I cannot wait to see this one. The HHH Era is awesome!

My Score: 8.8/10

Mr. & Mrs. Superbad are in the Dark!

As if Grand Slam wasn’t enough, AEW has some extra innings here with Dark: Elevation! Will Mr. & Mrs. Superbad, Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford, be hot together in Mixed Tag action?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Mixed Tag: Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Capt. Shawn Dean & Skye Blue; Kip & Penelope win.
  • Ortiz VS Serpentico w/ Luther; Ortiz wins.

QUICK NOTES

If what I’ve read is correct, there are only TWO matches for Elevation tonight after how stacked Grand Slam was this year. And it’s pretty clear to see which way each match will go, too, so not much else to say.
