PLAY BY PLAY

Raw opens with MIZ ATTACKING LOGAN PAUL!

Miz is raining down fists on the social media megastar! Logan gets up but Miz RAMS Logan into a corner! And again! Logan clubs back, they scrap, Logan hits a SPINEBUSTER! Miz keeps hitting from below, referees rush out, the brawl just continues as Logan gets loose! Officials try to hold these two back, Miz gets out of the ring, but then wants back in! The refs stop Miz from sliding in and Logan cools off. Will either of these two men wait for SummerSlam to finish this?

 

Roman Reigns is here!

The Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, leads the way for The Bloodline. Paul Heyman holds the blue belt while Roman wears the block, the Usos have all their tag titles, and the Bloodline raises them up for the pyro. Madison Square Garden is packed but torn down the middle as Roman walks to the ring. And as always, Roman and the Usos raise the belts again for more pyro. Fans chant for “ROMAN! ROMAN!” and Heyman hands the mic over. Roman smiles and says, “Madison Square Garden! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Fans are still torn but Roman tells the “Wise Man” that he doesn’t like talking anymore.

Roman hands the mic to Heyman and Heyman is rather surprised. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Island of Relevancy. Where tonight our new capital…” The mic is not working. Okay, sound guy, you must be from Jersey. He’s next one out the door. But as Heyman was saying, welcome to our capital, New York City, and their city hall, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN! This honor has been bestowed upon him by his Tribal Chief because this Sunday marks 700 DAYS of the title reign of the Head of the Table, the GOAT, the Greatest of All Time, Roman… Reigns!

And admittedly, this plays into the hands of the challenger for the Undisputed Title, because he just loves to piss on everyone’s parade. And Heyman of course means… BRRROCK! LESNARRR! Heyman asks us this, “When Randy Couture was the greatest MMA Heavyweight of all time, who ruined that party? Brock Lesnar! When the Undertaker was 21-0 at WrestleMania, who ruined that party? Brock! Lesnar! When John Cena was running around with all the Hustle, Loyalty and Respect, who took him to Suplex City and burst that bubble? BROCK! LESNAR! And now, Brock Lesnar looks at this Saturday as day number 699, and he says, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ruin the party for Roman Reigns.’

“This is why my Tribal Chief takes it so personally. Roman Reigns is tired of Brock Lesnar’s legacy being tied into the legacy of the GOAT, Roman Reigns. You think of the Knicks, you think of the Celtics. You think of the Yankees, you think of the Red Sox. You think of Hogan, you think of Macho Man. You think of Stone Cold, you think of The Rock. Well when you think of Roman Reigns, you will no longer, after Saturday, have to think of Brock Lesnar again, because the Suplexorcist is going to exorcise the demon of Brock Lesnar out of the legacy of Roman… Reigns!

“It’s enough! We’re sick of Brock Lesnar’s name! We’re sick of Brock Lesnar riding on the coattails of the greatness of Roman Reigns! IT’s time for Brock to go back to Saskatchewan and slaughter a bunch of hogs.” Heyman says this is what will happen: Anything. All Roman needs to do to keep Brock Lesnar down for the count of ten in their very last match together, he will finally rid of himself of Brock Lesnar. Which is why Roman has nothing to say tonight. Because Roman cannot stand the sound of the name “Brock Lesnar.” And after Saturday at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar, you will not be able to stand at all!

But fans chant for “Suplex City!” and then (Austin) Theory arrives! Theory says what’s so funny right now is that The Bloodline talks a lot, but they seem to forget the most important details. See, at SummerSlam, Theory won’t just take back his US Championship from Bobby Lashley, but he’ll walk down to the ring, just like he is now, cash in his Money in the Bank contract, and it won’t matter if it’s Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns, because Theory will become the NEW Undisputed WWE Universal Champion! Roman gets the mic back to tell Theory, “You just gonna stop right there? If you’re gonna come into my arena, at least step foot in my ring and acknowledge your Tribal Chief.”

Theory is hesitant to step forward but Roman says he can’t get scared now. Fans chant “Don’t Be Scared!” and Theory gets in the ring. Roman chuckles and so do the Usos. Theory is nervous! NYC should take it easy, this is his first time. Roman gets it, though. Wise Man, we like Theory, don’t we? He’s alright. Roman can appreciate what Theory’s trying to do but let’s be honest: Theory has no clue what he’s doing. He needs a Wise Man of his own! He needs someone to counsel him! Roman will do that for Theory. Here are some words of wisdom: start looking around. Analyze the situation. Daddy’s not here no more. This is Roman’s ring.

Fans chant “Daddy’s Gone!” and Roman points it out. Fans chant now “Who’s Your Daddy?” Roman says if Theory keeps messing up, Roman will be the daddy! But let’s understand the situation here: Roman runs The Garden now. Roman drops the mic, pats Theory on the back, and Jey SLAPS Theory! So Theory CLUBS Jey! Roman keeps Jey from retaliating, Theory dares someone to step up. The Bloodline spares Theory, for now. Will Theory reconsider his master plan for SummerSlam?

 

Raw returns and Theory gets a proper introduction.

The Youngest Mr. Money in the Bank says that is what he truly deserves. And he is sure we all enjoyed what Roman- Wait, Drew McIntyre is here?! SmackDown’s Scottish Warrior, and his sword, Angela, are here on Raw for MSG! Fans are fired up for it, but Theory isn’t so sure. A ref gets in the ring, this is a match!

Winners: Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley, by submission

The Showoff gets under Theory’s skin again, and now the Scottish Warrior and the All Mighty are rolling towards this weekend. Will McIntyre win the Donnybrook with Sheamus? Will Theory have his focus split too much to win much of anything at SummerSlam? But then Theory gets to the ramp, and DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from the Usos take him out!! And they hand Roman the briefcase! Roman looks it over, then kneels by Theory to return it. If Theory wants to cash in, he has to have this briefcase. And when he does, Roman wants Theory to make the right decision. Is that all the Bloodline’s way of saying Theory has no chance in Nashville?

 

It all started on July 25th, 2002.

Rey Mysterio quite literally FLEW into the WWE when he hit a CROSSBODY OF A CAGE on Christian and Lance Storm. And if that didn’t tell you he was something special, then just look at what happened after. Lucha libre on another level, and the 619 as his finisher, who didn’t love the Ultimate Underdog? And of course, his friendship and rivalry with Eddie Guerrero helped him reach the top of the mountain in 2006. Winning the Royal Rumble to headline WrestleMania 22 to take the World Heavyweight Championship from Randy Orton was proof that dreams really do come true in life.

Dominik says it is a blessing to have one of the best ever be his own father, always by his side. They made history together as a father-son tag team championship duo, and that was just one of many amazing accomplishments in Rey’s career. “Every day is a blessing. This has been the biggest ride of my life.” And it isn’t done yet!

 

The Mysterios arrive in style!

Rey and Dominik pull up, and they’ve brought Mrs. and Aliyah Mysterio, too! Tonight, we all celebrate, after the break.

 

Another mysterious video plays.

The gears of a clock are turning. More glimpses of items pertaining to John Cena, Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker and more. The bloody writing continues. “I am coming to,” but to what?

 

Backstage interview with Dolph Ziggler.

Kevin Patrick asks about Ziggler continuing to target Theory. Can he explain his actions? Ziggler says the answer is simple: Theory needs to be taught a lesson. Ziggler has seen thousands of them come and thousands of them go. Everything Theory has had as quickly as he got them was because he was handed them. Sure, he’s quick, athletic, and almost as handsome as Ziggler, but- AJ Styles walks over and says he appreciates what Ziggler is up to. The two of them seem to have a lot in common, actually. But then SHOOOOSH! Shoosh, please. Chad Gable won’t ignore such slander. Especially from two guys who are just jealous that Theory has already surpassed them.

Just like Gable surpasses their IQs. But jealousy is an ugly disease. But “the man with the golden brain” has the cure, and that is Alpha Academy beating it out of them! Hold on. Is this them challenging Ziggler and Styles to a tag match? Oh, he figured that out all on his own? Gable’s so proud. YES this is a tag match challenge! Tonight, in the Garden of Madison Square! Then challenge accepted. Also, see you out there, you Nathan Fielder wannabe. Who? Don’t worry about it. But will Gable & Otis lose from A to Z?

 

The Mysterios head to the ring!

Rey and Dom are all geared up, the Mysterios celebrate with in-ring action. The rest of the family, as well as friends, are watching backstage with a special Mysterio cake. Rey gets the mic as fans chant, “Thank You, Rey!” Rey says, “Twenty years, this is special, man. Really special. Now let me give you a little backstory. I was 14 years old when I had my first match in Tijuana. And I never imagined in a million years that I would one day perform inside a WWE ring, travel the world, make money, and create legendary rivalries for all, each and every one of you to enjoy.”

The truth is, guys Rey’s size back then just weren’t in the business. But Rey broke that stereotype and that blueprint of what a WWE Superstar should look like. “Now, as a smaller guy, and as a damn proud Latino, I became world champion at WrestleMania 22. And I made a lot of friends along the way. Friends that I wanna thank for helping pave the road for me in my career. You might know some of these names. Dean Malenko. K Dog, Viva la Raza! Batista! Kurt Angel. How ’bout Edge? And we cannot forget the great Eddie Guerrero!” Fans chant for “Eddie! Eddie!”

Rey says he loves and misses Eddie every day. Rey wouldn’t be here without Eddie, and Eddie is always watching over him, so thank you, Eddie. But tonight, Rey stands here before us, truly humble and appreciative of all the love and support the fans have given these past 20 years. Fans chant, “Thank You, Rey!” Rey says to be able to do all that with his family means even more. Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” Rey tells Angie and Aalyah that he wants to say thanks for always being there. He loves them both. And of course, for Dom, Rey is so proud of his son. Rey is proud of the man Dom’s become, and that one day, when Rey is no longer here, Dom will represent the Mysterio legacy to the fullest. Rey loves Dom.

To the fans, here and around the world, Rey wants to thank you for accepting him, always rolling with the Mysterios, and for 20 of the dopest, most awesome years of his life! And Rey has saved the best for last. Rey wants to thank all these fans here tonight. He could’ve been anywhere in the world, but he is here tonight in the legendary and iconic Madison Square Garden, celebrating 20 years! He loves you all! Gracias! Rey continues in Spanish to say he will always be here to represent the Latino culture with pride and respect. He loves you all, this means the world to him! Wait, here comes the Judgement Day from out of the crowd!

Finn Balor applauds as he approaches ringside, and Damian Priest is on the other side! The Mysterios find themselves flanked, but this match will happen fair and square, after the break.

The Mysterios VS The Judgement Day!

Raw returns, this match is already going, and Finn brings Dom up to bump off buckles. Finn CHOPS Dom, CHOPS him again, then CHOPS him again. Finn  whips corner to corner, runs in and CHOPS yet again! Finn grinds his forearm in and makes sure Rey is watching. Finn whips corner to corner again but Dom dodges! Hot tag to Rey! Rey fires off on Finn, whips him to ropes but Finn reverses to kick low! Finn runs, sunset flips but Rey slips through to basement dropkick! Rey DECKS Damian, BOOTS Finn, then tilt-o-whirl RANAS Finn down! Tag back to Dom, the Mysterios hit a DOUBLE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!

Dom gets Rey up to POWERBOMB him onto Finn! Cover, TWO! Dom bumps Finn off buckles again and again, tags Rey back in, and Rey throws haymakers. Rey climbs up the corner to trap Finn’s arm and rain down fists! Fans count along and Rey goes all the way to 10! Rey gives us some Latino Heat then whips corner to corner. Finn reverses hard and Rey bounces off buckles! Finn drags Rey over, tags in Priest, and Priest stomps Rey. Priest drags Rey up, ROCKS Rey with a right, then stalks him to ropes. Priest soaks up the heat and he CHOKES Rey on the ropes! The ref counts, Priest lets off, but then Priest drags Rey up to put in a corner.

Priest whips corner to corner hard, then he runs in to back elbow! Priest gets Rey up, BROKEN ARROW! Priest then taunts Dom before he covers Rey, TWO! Priest clamps onto an armlock and Rey endures. Fans rally, Rey fights up but Priest tags Finn. Priest scoop SLAMS Rey, Finn slingshot STOMPS Rey down! Rey sputters, Finn brings him around and throws elbows into the shoulders. Finn then clamps on a thrashing SLEEPER! Rey endures, the family rallies backstage, and Rey fights the hold. Rey slips off the scoop to ENZIGURI, tag to Dom! Dom goes up to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!

Dom hurries up to arm-drag Finn around! And knuckle lock, knee low, and go up, up, and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Priest tags in but Dom dodges Finn to DECK Priest! Dom dropkicks Finn out then DIVES at Priest, only to end up in a TOSS into barriers! Priest roars and Judgement Day stands tall as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Finn keeps Dom away from Rey with a knee. Finn whips, Dom kicks back! Dom hits a SLING-DOG! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Dom crawls to his corner. Finn also crawls, hot tags to Priest and Rey! Rey KICKS a leg out, ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! Priest stagger sup into more KICKS, but he blocks the whip! Priest reveres, Rey goes up but Priest puts him on the apron. Rey shoulders in, GAMANGIRIS, then goes up top, SEATED SENTON! Cover, TWO! Priest is still in this and he shoves Rey. Rey KICKS Priest, runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO! Rey is still in this and Priest is furious!

Priest drags Rey up, calls his shot, and hoists Rey up, but Rey slips off the crucifix with a RANA! Priest tumbles to ropes, but Finn tags in! Rey dials it up into a LARIAT! Finn grins, runs and SHOTGUNS Rey into the corner! Finn goes up as Rey is down, COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Dom breaks it in time! Finn is furious and he KICKS Dom in the side! Finn tosses Dom out, snarls and shouts to Priest. Priest grabs a chair! Priest brings the chair to the ring, then he fetches another. The ref is busy with Priest, but Finn has the one chair!

Winners: The Mysterios, by pinfall

That’s the way to celebrate the 20th anniversary! Will this get the Judgement Day to leave them alone? Or is this only going to escalate from here?

 

The celeb-REY-tion continues backstage.

The family cheers for Rey as the champagne is served and the conquering heroes join them! Champagne shower for Rey and Dom and then the tequila is brought out! Salud! And of course, a gift! Rey opens it up, and voila! It’s his 1997 Halloween Havoc gear! Aalyah dug it out of storage, but this is the real deal, too. But wait, Rhea Ripley is crashing the party! Dom ells her hold on, this is a special night. Aalyah tells Rhea to leave. Rhea pie faces her back, then drags Dom away! Rey pursues, and Priest BOOTS him down! Finn is there to drag Rey along the hallway! Finn says it isn’t Rey’s anniversary, it’s Finn’s birthday!

The Judgement Day stomp Rey, then get him up for a POWERBOMB through a table!! The family rushes over to check on Rey as Finn, Priest and Rhea laugh away into the shadows. Will this never end until the Mysterios are all but destroyed?

 

Bianca Belair heads to the ring!

The RawEST Women’s Champion is here in New York, ready to defend her title in her home state of Tennessee against a familiar foe in Becky Lynch. And speaking of, Becky shows up before Bianca can even speak! But then Bianca tells Becky, “Girl, uh-uh. Oh, you’re not used to anybody stopping you in your tracks, huh? Choo-choo~! Now Becky, we all know that you’ve got the biggEST mouth in the WWE, but The EST didn’t come here to NYC to hear you run it. So I’mma let you finish, but before you start all that complaining, let me remind you of a few things, okay? I am the strongEST, the roughEST, the toughEST, and the quickEST.”

Becky wants to say her part but Bianca interrupts her again, so Becky sucker punches her! Becky dares Bianca to talk now, but Bianca trips Becky to fire off forearms!

The refs rush out again but fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Becky and Bianca reach out but the officials keep them apart. Another grudge will have to wait, will Bianca just have to wait to get at the Big Time?

 

Backstage interview with Alexa Bliss.

Sarah says Alexa faces a familiar opponent in Doudrop. What is her mindset going into this? And what will Alexa look for next? Alexa says it’s fine Doudrop keeps wanting these matches, but here’s what she doesn’t get. What is the dynamic of Piper Niven and Nikki A.S.H? They make fun of Alexa for having Lily, but why are they friends? They don’t benefit anything from it. Alexa loves Lily but she doesn’t need Lily and Lily doesn’t need Alexa. Lily’s an independent woman who makes her own money through WWE Shop.

But here’s why Alexa is number one. Becky and Bianca, it doesn’t matter who wins, you both better watch out. Alexa will reclaim her place at the top of the Raw Women’s Division. Alexa blows a kiss, but will she get #Doudropped on the road back to the title?

 

The medical team checks Rey out.

He’s clutching his shoulder, but then Judgement Day comes back! Dom tells them to not even get close, as does security. But then Rhea gets around to BOOT Rey in the bad arm! “Happy 20th, Rey!” Rhea laughs as she runs off again! Are these jackals not done with him tonight?

AJ Styles talks with Logan Paul backstage.

Styles loved what Logan did with Miz tonight. It was phenomenal, no pun intended. Now, Styles doesn’t want there to be any confusion. He likes what Logan did out there, but he doesn’t necessarily like Logan Paul himself, he doesn’t really know Logan that well. But he likes The Miz way less, so do everyone a favor and shut Miz up at SummerSlam. Logan says he’s got that covered. Logan heads for gorilla, will #ImPAULsiveTV be must-see?

 

Logan Paul heads to the ring!

He’s got a tuxedo on and the set of ImPAULsive TV is waiting for him. “New York Cityyyy~! We are at Madison Square Garden, and guys, I gotta say, because my brother is actually going to be fighting here next weekend.” Fans are torn on Jake Paul, but Logan says that’s next weekend. Today, tonight, is Monday Night Raw! And the debut of ImPAULsiveTV! It’s like MizTV, but people actually watch. So let’s get impulsive. Logan calls Miz out to finish what they started! They can finish this here in the Mecca of fight sport entertainment! Oh, Miz doesn’t come out? That’s surprising. This is Miz’s MO, getting all the attention!

Logan calls Miz out more, but there’s still no response. Miz is probably trembling backstage with his shriveled little prunes. But wait! Here comes MARYSE! And she tells Logan that first, she doesn’t appreciate him talking about her amazing, awesome, fantastic husband, star of their hit reality show, Miz & Mrs., which has a big double episode finale tonight on the USA Network after Raw, which will be awesome. Second, Logan doesn’t talk about her kids ever again! And most of all, she doesn’t like him talking about her man’s gen… genito… his PACKAGE! But fans still chant “TINY BALLS!” Maryse says that’s not a thing!

Maryse puts her hand up and copies Miz, “When my hand goes up, your mouths go shut!” But she’ll have you know, Logan~, that the average size of a man’s… testicles, is between 1.8 and 2 inches. The Miz’s balls are more like these she has here. Whoa, who measures their nuts? Miz returns, finally being egged on too much by Logan. And Miz says HE does. And so does every single man in MSG. But this isn’t about that. This is about Miz VS Logan at SummerSlam! Miz wants to explain something to Logan. Miz gave him everything here! If not for Miz, Logan wouldn’t be in the WWE, wouldn’t have gone to WrestleMania, and wouldn’t be on SummerSlam! Logan owes Miz!

So Miz will be perfectly clear! Miz taught Logan everything he knows but not everything Miz knows. So at SummerSlam, you won’t get fun loving dad Miz, or reality show TV Miz. You are getting Big Moment Miz! The TWO-TIME GRAND SLAM WINNER Miz! John Cena getting beat in the main event Miz! And when the dust settles, you and every moron watching will know that Miz is AWW- SHUT UP!! Logan called Miz out to throw down and all Miz does is talk! But Logan always knew Miz had tiny- Maryse slaps the mic away! Wow, congrats, Maryse. You’ve got bigger balls than your husband.

Maryse keeps Miz back, but here comes CIAMPA! Logan brawls with Ciampa, Miz gets in but Logan just tackles him! But Ciampa CLOBBERS Logan from behind! Ciampa helps Miz up, and Miz drags Logan up. But Logan tackles Miz down! Ciampa CLOBBERS Logan again, they beat Logan down 2v1, and even the ImPAULsive sign falls on Logan! Miz and Ciampa tear that up, throw it out, and Ciampa drags Logan up again. Miz hooks Logan up for a SKULL CRUSHIGN FINALE! Miz smirks as he looks down on Logan. Fans want that “One More Time!” but Miz takes off his jacket to sling over his shoulder. Miz and Ciampa fist bump, but will Logan finally get his revenge on Saturday?

 

Backstage interview with the Street Profits AND the Usos.

Kevin Patrick introduces each team one at a time, and even adds the special guest referee, Double J, Jeff Jarrett! The Usos and The Profits have the Six Man Tag main event still to come, but they will be 2v2 at SummerSlam for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. But Ford won’t let Kevin get to his questions. Tonight, the Usos get a preview of what happens this Saturday. YESSIR! Jey says they’ll just body the Profits again, like they did at MITB! YESSIR! Ford says they didn’t body nobody then. The teams start pushing and Jarrett tells EVERYONE to shut up! Anyone who gets outta line tonight, Jarrett will remember at SummerSlam. So you better keep the peace.

Jarrett heads off, Profits and Usos tell each other that Jarrett just told the other team off. The Profits are up and #WeWantTheSmoke! Well good, but you’re still the twos, because #WeTheOnes! But then Jarrett returns and they all calm down. Ain’t he great?

 

AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler VS The Alpha Academy!

Two #PhenomenalShowoffs quickly bonded over their disdain for cocky newbies like Theory, but Chad Gable & Otis claim it’s all just jealousy. Will Styles & Ziggler prove it’s nothing of the sort? Or will they SHOOOOSH?

Raw returns and the Alpha Academy make their entrance. Chad has a mic to SHOOOOSH Madison Square Garden. “New York, I’m disappointed in you. You know better than that. You do not boo an Olympian. You do not boo a man with a Master’s Degree, and you do not boo a man who did it with an immaculate 4.0 GPA. A Thank Yew~!” Fans still boo anyway. Gable says they’re the ones who live on a decomposing, putrid excuse of an island, okay? An island, in fact, that will end up at the bottom of the ocean under the weight of the human garbage that lives on it! Gable says not to get mad, that’s just science!

And when it comes to human garbage, Gable tells Styles and Ziggler are just another thrown-together team that will just end up a disappointment. Like an organization that is an embarrassment, the New York Knicks. So everyone do NYC a favor and let them get a look at a real tag team! The intellect, Chad Gable. The tree trunk, Otis! A THANK YEW~! The teams sort out, Ziggler and Gable start. They tie up, go around, Gable drags Ziggler down to facelock but Ziggler slips around to half nelson and cradle, ONE! DROPKICK! Ziggler drags Gable up and over, tag to Styles, and they mug Gable.

Styles CLUBS Gable, but Gable throat chops! Gable says “SHOOSH!” then runs, but Styles hurdles and drops to then DROPKICK! Gable bails out, the ring count starts, but Styles slingshots to FLYING FOREARM! Down goes Gable, Styles drags him and his big brain back up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and the Academy double whips Styles for a double back drop! Styles lands hard, Otis DECKS Ziggler! Otis covers Styles, TWO! Otis drags Styles up, clamps on a neck wrench, but fans rally as Styles fights up. Styles JAWBREAKERS, but Otis back suplexes! Styles lands on his feet then jumps, but Otis catches him! Styles sunset flips through, but Otis stays up. Otis jumps but Styles avoids the elbow drop! Styles hurries, hot tag to Ziggler! Ziggler dodges Otis, DECKS Gable, fires off on Otis and KNEES him! Ziggler runs, into the WRECKER ELBOW! Otis shouts, “For the Academy!”

Otis taunts Ziggler, tags Gable in, and Gable says, “Look at that face!” Gable drags Ziggler up, tells fans to SHOOSH, then he hits an EXPLODER! Ziggler flounders while Gable demands he get up. Gable waistlocks, CHAOS THEORY! “A THANK YEW~!” Fans boo but Gable drags Ziggler to a drop zone. Gable goes up, MOONSAULTS, but has to land on his feet as Ziggler dodges! SUPERKICK! Cover, Otis breaks it! Otis sees Styles jump in and catches him! But Ziggler SUPERKICKS Otis! Styles PELES and Otis falls out! Gable throat chops Ziggler then waistlocks Styles Styles bucks that into a ZIGZAG! Cover, A to Z wins!

Winners: AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall

And they get outta there before Otis returns! The Academy failed their own challenge, will they have to rethink their strategies? Or have we seen the start of a phenomenal new tag team?

 

BREAKING NEWS for SummerSlam!

After everything the Judgement Day has been doing to Rey Mysterio, we’re getting a NO DISQUALIFICATIONS Tag Team match! Will Rey & Dom use everything they can get their hands on to beat down Finn & Priest? Or will this be what finally leaves the lucha libre legend and his legacy lying on the mat for good?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Riddle & The Street Profits VS The Bloodline!

The Tribal Chief and the Usos head out first for their round of pyro, but those won’t be the only fireworks tonight. Will the #BROfits be knocked down before everything explodes in Nashville? Or will the undisputed champions of the WWE see they aren’t as unstoppable as they think?

Raw returns and the Profits make their entrance, followed by Riddle’s. The trios sort out and Dawkins starts with Jimmy. They circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Dawkins turns things but Jimmy headlocks, Dawkins powers out, Jimmy urns him over, but things keep moving, Dawkins hurdles, Jimmy shoves, Dawkins hurdles again to FLYING ELBOW! Cover, ONE, but Dawkins facelocks. Tag to Ford, they double whip and dropkick Jimmy down! Then back suplex SPLASH! Cover, ONE! Ford wrenches but Jimmy powers Ford to the Bloodline’s corner! Tag to Jey, Jey runs in to forearm smash! Jey CLUBS Ford down then talks trash.

Jey has Ford on ropes, CHOKES him, but the ref counts. Jey lets off, but Roman adds on while the ref is distracted! Roman gets away with that, Jey gets Ford with a chinlock then he CLUBS Ford down. Fans rally “UCE! SO!” as Jey puts Ford in a corner. Jey whips corner to corner, Ford goes up and over and then DROPKICKS! Ford taunts Roman’s “ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” then tags Riddle in. Ford wrenches an arm, Riddle KICKS Jey and ROCKS him with a forearm. Riddle fires off, KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! The ref counts, Riddle lets off Jey at 4, but then Jimmy runs in. Riddle dumps Jimmy out, tags Ford in, and Ford FLIES!

Direct hit on the Usos at the ramp and Ford lands on his feet! MSG is fired up with Ford as he dances over the Usos and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Jey drags Riddle up for a BIG back suplex! Jey raises the fingers, #WeTheOnes, and then Jey pushes Riddle to the Bloodline corner. Jey stomps a mudhole into Riddle, Jimmy tags in and he stomps away. Jey stomps away, too, then gets out of the ring. Roman talks trash on Riddle, and Jimmy wants to gift The Bro to him! Roman looks around and hears the fans chanting for him. So the Tribal Chief decides to tag in! Fans cheer and jeer as Roman drags Riddle up to bump off buckles, and fire off those point-blank lariats! Roman goes all the way to ten, then he runs to LEAPING LARIAT Riddle down!

Roman dares the Profits to do something as he drags Riddle up. Roman reels Riddle in, snap suplexes, then covers, TWO! Roman drags Riddle up again and he wrenches the arm to YANK on it. Tag to Jey, they mug Riddle with a shot to the ribs. Riddle falls and sputters, Heyman says that was a magnificent round from the Tribal Chief. Jey drags Riddle up to ROCK him with an uppercut! Riddle staggers to a corner, Jey taunts the Profits and runs corner to corner, but Riddle moves! The splash hits post and fans fire up! Both men crwal, hot tag to Ford! GAMANGIRI for Jey, then Ford goes up for a BIG leap!

Jey gets under but Ford DECKS Jimmy! Roman avoids a shot, Ford avoids Jey, and Ford LARIATS Jey down! Fans fire up as Ford mule kicks, front kicks and ENZIGURIS! Roman sneaks a tag in before Ford hits a BIG back suplex on Jey! Ford kips up, but turns around into Roman’s URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives but Roman argues the count. The ref says that was fair, so Roman drags Ford up to RAM him into the Bloodline corner. Roman throws hands, CLUBS Ford in the chest, then tags in Jimmy. Jimmy and Roman mug Ford, who is busted open along his eyebrow and bridge of the nose.

The ref checks Ford and tells Jimmy to stay back. Ford is dazed, bloody, but he says he’s still in this. So Jimmy rains down elbows and fists into Ford’s face! Jimmy drops a headbutt! Cover, TWO! Ford gets to the corner and Roman mocks Ford’s pain. Jey tags in and Jimmy scoops Ford, BACKBREAKER AX HANDLE COMBO! Cover, TWO! Ford is still in this but Jey stays on him as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more and Ford is fighting against a chinlock with body shots, only for Jimmy to throw Ford down! Jimmy puts Ford on the ropes and CHOKES him! The ref counts, Jimmy lets off, and Jimmy tags Roman. Roman goes out and raises the finger, to then DRIVE-BY DROPKICK! Fans fire up as Roman goes back to the ring. Roman drags Ford up, bumps him off more buckles, then throws haymakers on him over and over! The ref counts, Roman lets off, but Roman talks trash. Roman’s on top, #WeTheOnes, and he locks ‘n’ loads. Dawkins rushes in but Roman DECKS him! Ford comes up to BLOCKBUSTER!

Fans fire up while both men are down! Ford and Roman crawl, hot tags to Riddle and Jimmy! The Bro rallies, spins Jimmy to a PELE, then kips up! Jey gets in, but Riddle turns him around to ripcord and FINAL FLASH! Forearm smash for Jimmy to a BROSPLODER! Then a forearm smash and BROSPLODER for Jey! BROTON for Jimmy, BROTON for Jey and fans are fired up as Riddle puts Jimmy through ropes! Shout out to Randy, but Jey saves Jimmy. So Riddle goes outside to PENALTY KICK Jey! Riddle then SPRINGBOARD FLOATING BROS! He takes out the Usos right in front of commentary!

Riddle puts Jimmy in the ring, dodges the clothesline but Jimmy dodges the powerslam! Roman tags in before Jimmy runs in, POWERSLAM hits after all! But the SUPERMAN PUNCH is outta nowhere! Cover, Ford breaks it! Ford CLUBS away on Roman, Jey drags him up but Ford tosses Jey out! Ford then PLANCHAS! Direct hit and Jey goes down! Jimmy runs to DIVE and take out Ford! The Usos regroup, but Dawkins POUNCES them both into the timekeeper’s area! But Roman SMACKS Dawkins off the desk, RAMS him into the steel steps, and gets back on the apron. FINAL FLASH in the ropes!! DRAPING DDT!!

Fans are thunderous as Riddle hears those voices, bro! Roman rises, RK- NO, Roman TOSSES Riddle! “OOAH~!” SPEAR!! Cover, The Bloodline wins!

Winners: The Bloodline, by pinfall

The Tribal Chief turns momentum around at the last moment, and he stands tall with his cousins once again! Will this be how things go for SummerSlam? Speaking of, “BURN IT DOWN~!” Seth Rollins is here now that Riddle is down and out! The Visionary has the fans singing “OH~ OH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins waves bye as he goes past Roman. Riddle flounders up but Rollins CLOBBERS him! Rollins tosses Riddle out of the ring, gets the steel steps in hand, and he RAMS Riddle down! Rollins then hits a CURB STOMP to the floor! But that isn’t enough for Rollins, he drags Riddle to the steps and sets him against them.

Fans are torn between singing and booing as Rollins runs up, STEEL STEP CURB STOMP!! Rollins laughs like the maniacal villain he is! Will the Visionary put the Bro down in Nashville? Or will Riddle be able to avenge himself against Seth Freakin’ Rollins?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Raw, and the start of the new era in WWE creative! Vince is out, HHH is in, and we already got to see so much change just in how the show is put together that makes it so much better. Opening with Miz and Logan brawling was so unexpected, I laughed and had a great time seeing that. However, it then made them still doing ImPAULsive TV later redundant. Maybe they should’ve opened the night with ImPAULsive TV or should have waited for that segment for Logan to call Miz out and we get the brawl. Well, either way, both segments in a nutshell were great, it just seems like a lot of Logan and Miz, and boy did Maryse struggle to really make this last “Miz does (not) have tiny balls” promo work. As much as fans like chanting at Miz about that, I hope this is the last hurrah of that since Vince is out.

A great bunch of stuff with Theory and all the stories connected through him. Roman burns Theory’s kayfabe in bringing up Vince being gone, but he does show good guts standing up to The Bloodline. Then he goes and steps in it right after, as is his character. Great match with McIntyre 1v1, which was a surprise in itself, but of course the Brawling Brutes show up, too. Then we got a great “impromptu” tag match, and of course Ziggler gets involved again. McIntyre and Lashley get the win here, but McIntyre is still going to win that Donnybrook. Not sure about Lashley now, but there is still Friday for the go-home math. Theory getting knocked down by the superkicks was great, too.

Great career highlight vignette for Rey Mysterio, great promo from Rey himself, though he might’ve started stretching the end to make sure Finn and Priest had time to make their way in from the crowd. Really good match between Mysterios and Judgement Day, and of course the Mysterios win for Rey’s 20th anniversary. Judgement Day getting at them the rest of the night was rather interesting, though. Rhea Ripley’s return, especially with Aalyah getting in her face, I feel like there are plans for a Mixed Six where Aalyah gets in the ring. That No DQ tag rematch at SummerSlam is going to allow Rhea and Aalyah to get involved, setting up the 3v3.

Bianca and Becky had a good segment that also turned into a brawl, though they probably could’ve done a bit more with it. It doesn’t really change the math, either, in that I can’t be sure who wins. I liked that Alexa called them both out either way, and then she had a good match with Piper. Alexa is probably next for the title, and I feel like the next phase for Piper and Nikki should be that Nikki finally ditches the superhero costume. It was a good concept but WWE dropped the ball almost on purpose, so HHH Era WWE just needs to reset Nikki into Nikki Cross. And with that, the Women’s Tag titles return and Piper & Nikki have a chance at them.

I liked Styles’ interaction with Logan, and his interaction with Ziggler and the Alpha Academy. Really good match from Styles & Ziggler VS The Alpha Academy, and a good win for Face Ziggler. Whatever happens at SummerSlam, Ziggler and Theory are going to have a great feud to help Theory really get to where he needs to be before truly being the top guy Vince was making him. Good interaction from Usos, Profits and Jarrett. Jarrett was like the teacher getting the class to behave. And of course, an awesome Six Man Tag. The Bloodline wins, of course, so they can have momentum, and also to keep there from being a cash-in attempt by Theory.

I almost didn’t think Rollins was going to show, but then he wrecked Riddle. I think Riddle wins at SummerSlam so that even though he’s banned from challenging Roman, Riddle can immediately be a contender the moment Roman drops the belts.

My Score: 8.8/10

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! Sky survives again and Bayley is stressing out. Bianca glares at Bayley, stalks Sky, and she drags Sky up into a torture rack. “This is Awesome!” as Sky fights the KOD!

Sky is on the apron, she ROCKS and GAMANGIRIS Bianca away! Sky goes up top for a CROSSBODY! But Bianca rolls it through! Bianca shakes her head, and she FALL AWAY SLAMS Sky down! Cover, TWO! Sky rolls away but Bianca drags her into a drop zone. Bianca climbs up, Sky pops up to SHOTEI! Sky then climbs up after Bianca, fires forearms and a HEABUTT! Sky stands on the very top to SUPER- NO, Bianca blocks the Steiner to push Sky away. Bianca BOOTS Sky, adjusts, but Sky goes up top! SUPER ARM-DRAG!!

Sky fires up and she aims from a corner. Sky runs in for the SHINKANSEN! Bianca is in the drop zone now and Sky goes up! But Bianca trips her up! And SHOVES her onto DMG CTRL! Bianca aims, for a PLANCHA!! Bianca is all fired up and so are the fans! But Sky SHOTEIS and SHOTEIS and SHOTEIS! Sky pushes Bianca in, springboards, but Bianca gets under! Torture rack! KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

A big win over the Genius of the Sky! Bianca is ready to fly, will Bayley regret choosing a Ladder Match for their showdown?

Someone arrives in the back.

It’s Solo Sikoa & Sami Zayn! They’re here so the Honorary Uce can face AJ Styles, will he make the Phenomenal One pay for the disrespect shown to the Bloodline?

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.

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?

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?

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.

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?

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

AEW Elevation Coverage

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.
