Backstage interview with Josh Briggs, Brooks Jensen & Fallon Henley.

McKenzie talks with the NXT UK Tag Team Champions about what’s next. Next? Jensen’s still waiting for his first. Not that, Brooks… But Briggs says this trio’s picked up some bumps and bruises along the way, but that’s just how they roll. They’ll get their asses back on the horses no matter what. And proudly! But The Schism walks in, and Joe Gacy says such pride is well deserved, they have something to be proud of. And Gacy is sure their families are enjoying the happiness. Especially Jensen’s father. He is second generation in WWE. But sadly, Cameron Grimes cannot say the same, as his father was a journeyman who did not enjoy that same success.

And to Gacy, that’s not fair. James Drake- er, Jagger Reed, wants them to look him in the eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul. And Zack- er, Rip Fowler, says if you join them, The Schism will provide a roadmap to success. Uh, they’re not lost. But if these guys need directions, then they can take a left, then a right, then go straight to where you’ll meet Jensen’s fists in your faces! If that’s how Jensen chooses to express himself, Gacy will oblige. And he will gladly be there to send a message to Cameron Grimes through Jensen. Just what is The Schism scheming this summer?

 

NXT North American Championship Open Challenge: Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS ???

The A Champion has been a champion so long, he’s not sure who should be next to face him. So he’s letting fate decide for him! Who answers the call of this golden opportunity?

Melo gets the mic, as does Trick. Life’s been amazing for them ever since The Great American Bash. They’ve been stacking dollars, starting drama, and taking all y’all’s baby mamas! Oh no, not the baby mamas! But it is what it is. Most importantly, they’re celebrating Melo’s birthday! Everyone knows Melo is a money player, and all he makes is money and moves. So tonight’s move is an Open Challenge for THE A Championship! The very next person to get in this ring can step up to get stepped on! And that person is… GIOVANNI VINCI! It’s #VeniVidiVinci, but will it be vittoria- WAIT! DRIVE-BY PHOTBOMB! Nathan Frazer snipes it!!

Everyone is shocked, but especially Melo and Vinci! Will the British Prodigy not only snipe the opportunity from Vinci, but also snatch this title from Melo on his birthday?

The belt is raised, the bell rings, and Melo circles with Frazer while Vinci joins commentary. Frazer headlocks, Melo powers up but Frazer hits a flying takeover. Melo headscissors, Frazer kips free, Melo hits a takeover but Frazer headscissors. Fans rally and duel, Melo moves around and handstands to jackknife! TWO as Frazer bridges and spins Frazer to then flip him up and over. Frazer ducks, dodges, trips Melo and jackknifes deep, TWO!! Melo narrowly escapes and fans fire up! Frazer and Melo reset, Melo shoves Frazer but Frazer SLAPS Melo! Frazer headlocks, Melo powers out, things speed up, duck and dodge and DROPKICK from Frazer!

Fans fire up as Frazer runs in at the corner, but Melo goes up, only for Frazer to slide under! Frazer trips Melo and POSTS him! Fans are torn on that one, but Melo might’ve been torn, too. Frazer gets back in while Melo writhes away. Frazer dodges Melo but Melo gets him in the ropes! FADE AWAY, but Frazer dodges! Melo GAMANGIRIS but Frazer blocks! Frazer shoulders in but Melo catches him for a KNEE SMASH and FADE AWAY! Fans fire up while Melo says it’s done. Cover, TWO! Melo keeps cool, and he drags Frazer up. Melo CHOPS, then reels Frazer in.

Cover, TWO! Frazer is still in this but Melo CLUBS away with haymakers! Fans duel, “MELO~!” “SUCKS!” Melo drags Frazer up, reels him back in, and shoots his shot. But Frazer slips around to dragon sleeper! Melo drops and victory rolls, TWO! Melo rushes in but Frazer catches Melo for a BUCKLE SHOT! Melo tumbles out of the ring! Trick checks on Melo but Melo gets up and in.

Fans rally, Melo is in a corner and Frazer is on the other side. Fans duel, Melo staggers and Frazer ROCKS him with a haymaker! And then another! Melo wobbles, snarls, but Frazer just DECKS him! Frazer fires off at the ropes, whips Melo and CLOBBERS him! Melo is up but Frazer CLOBBERS him again! Frazer kips up to THESZ PRESS and fast hands! Fans fire up and Frazer goes up the corner, to PHOENIX roll as Melo moves! Frazer SUPERKICKS Melo down, then SUPERKICKS again! Cover, TWO!! Trick is relieved and Melo bails out, but Frazer builds speed! Frazer DIVES, sends Melo into commentary, and someone’s drink spills all over Vinci!

Vinci is furious! Frazer puts Melo in and hurries to a corner, but Trick distracts the ref! Vinci SHOVES Frazer down! Melo is up top, for the THREE POINTER!! Cover, Melo wins!!

Winner: Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall (still NXT North American Champion)

Give the assist to Vinci, he screwed Frazer over just because he wasn’t fast enough to answer this open challenge himself. Will Frazer settle things with Vinci before trying Melo again?

 

NXT returns with the Heatwave Summit.

Wade Barrett, Bron Breakker, JD McDonagh, and quite a few security guards, are all present. Barrett thanks the NXT Champion and his next challenger for joining him. Barrett starts with JD. Since his arrival here in NXT 2.0, he has shown a precise and methodical approach, from his shocking debut at the Great American Bash to the… uncomfortable way he introduced himself. Uncomfortable? JD was very comfortable. But he doesn’t want to talk about last week, he wants to talk about the future at NXT Heatwave. JD has no problem telling us that he has not been in the ring with someone quite like Bron.

Bron is relentless, he is fearless, he is driven by intensity, and sitting here, JD sees the passion and fire in Bron’s eyes. JD can even understand why that’d be a source of fear for others. But for JD, it’s a stimulant. JD looks at Bron and sees a fire and everything in JD says to stomp out that fire. JD sees the way everyone else looks at Bron. They’re in awe, and they treat him with respect. Why? Because he could be on the cover of Muscle & Fitness magazines? JD sees Bron and sees a roadmap for the pain that he can inflict. “Because this ring is my operating theater. And those muscles you worked so hard to grow? I’m gonna tear them off the bones.”

At Heatwave, the only sound sweeter than Bron’s screams of agony will be ring announcer Alicia saying JD is the NEW NXT Champion. Barrett thanks JD for that. And now, Barrett says Bron knows the NXT Championship puts a big target on his back. Now one of NXT UK’s finest, the Irish Ace, has his sights set on him. How will Bron handle a man who has nothing but ill intent? Bron says, “JD is special. I’ve never been in the ring with someone like you. I studied your NXT UK career. You were champion for over a year. And no disrespect to Gunther or Ziggler or Ciampa, but you might be the smartest superstar that I’ve ever stepped foot in the ring with.”

JD is so smart, JD knows now to challenge Bron’s speed or strength, but his mind. That’s just it. Everyone has a plan until Bron breaks them in half! And you can call this an operating table or whatever, but when the title is on the line, Bron is an animal! Fans bark for that one. Bron is glad JD likes pain. Because at Heatwave, JD will be in a lot of it. JD laughs as he says this is what he likes about Bron. Bron believes every word that comes out of his mouth. But JD does, too. JD thinks that at Heatwave, everything Bron says will come true. The difference here is, that Bron likes to endure pain, but JD welcomes it.

Barrett has things calm down a bit. They do have business to take care of in signing the contract for this match. JD as the challenger gets to sign first. Bron says please. JD says he won’t yet. He knows it is tradition, but he caught a look on Bron’s face. There was fear. Bron needs to sign first. Bron says this isn’t fear, “you freakin’ sicko.” Bron will show JD he fears nothing with a heartbeat. Bron takes the contract and the pen then signs on the dotted line. Fans cheer and the contract is given to JD. JD has the pen, but he tells Bron that this summit won’t end in violence. But to show everyone how series JD is, this will end in blood.

JD uses a needed to poke his finger and he writes his name in blood! JD then stands up quick, and Bron stands up, too. But JD simply offers a handshake with that bleeding hand. Bron just holds up the title instead. But when Heatwave is over, will JD be holding that belt up while Bron is the one bleeding?

 

Apollo Crews visits the Diamond Mine dojo.

The Creeds are happy to see him, and he is proud to see them as NXT Tag Team Champions. Apollo wishes Julius & Brutus luck, and he is a huge fan. Well thanks! They’re big fans of Apollo, too. And there is an open invite. If he wants to get his roll on, the dojo’s doors are always open. Well he was state champion, but tonight, Apollo has some advice. Watch your backs. Not everything is what it seems. Brutus isn’t sure what Apollo’s getting at but Julius has an idea. For now, the Creeds are going to focus on Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo, retaining the titles, #AndStill. Alright, just keep your eyes open and kick some ass!

Apollo leaves, Damon Kemp walks in, and the Creeds ask about Roddy. Uh, yeah, that’s why Kemp’s here. Strong is running late, but he’ll be here for the match. Seriously? They have to game plan. Well, that’s all Strong said. That’s fine, as long as he is there. They can only control what they can control. But will Julius & Brutus be able to control their destiny when going up against The Don?

 

Toxic Attraction is freaking out backstage!

Gigi & Jacy can’t believe they lost the tag title match! But Mandy Rose is also freaking out! She claims there was cheating! That’s why they banned Mandy from ringside! McKenzie, NO! You always show up at the worst times! If she even holds out that mic, Jacy’s gonna lose it! McKenzie leaves, and Mandy’s music plays. Can the Toxic Goddess at least hold it together for the trio?

Sarray VS Mandy Rose!

The Warrior of the Sun faces Meiko Satomura for the NXT UK Women’s Championship this Thursday, but she and the NXT Women’s Champion have a score to settle. Will Sarray beat one champion before facing another? Or will Mandy finally have revenge for the brutal makeover via that dropkick?

NXT is picture in picture as Sarray makes her transformation entrance. The bell rings, Mandy and Sarray circle, and they tie up. Mandy waistlocks, SLAMS Sarray, then slaps her around. Mandy drags Sarray up but Sarray wrenches an arm. Mandy snapmares to a chinlock but Sarray slips out to a wristlock. Mandy snapmares again and chinlocks but Sarray again escapes to a wristlock. Sarray stomps Mandy down, twists the wrist more, but Mandy fights up. Mandy rolls, wrenches, knees low, then whips. Sarray ducks ‘n’ dodges to CROSSBODY! Cover, ONE, but Sarray rushes in to victory roll! AND STOMP!

Sarray fires up while Mandy flounders to a corner. Sarray runs in to back elbow! Sarray snapmares Mandy then fires up the fans as she climbs. NXT returns to single picture for the CROSSBODY, but Mandy catches and SLAMS Sarray down! Mandy rains down fists, covers, TWO! Mandy snarls, drags Sarray up and whips her to ropes. Sarray sunset flips, TWO! Mandy hurries up but Sarray runs to SHOTGUN Mandy down! Mandy is on the ropes and Sarray fires up! Sarray scrapes her boot off Mandy, then runs side to side! Mandy bails out to avoid the Sunray! Sarray still dropkicks but Mandy blocks it to YANK Sarray into ropes!

Mandy hurries back in to cover, TWO! Fans rally while Mandy drags Sarray up. Mandy puts Sarray in the corner, fires off forearms, then stomps away. The ref counts, Mandy stops at 4, and Mandy soaks up the cheers and jeers. Mandy digs her knees into Sarray but the ref counts. Mandy lets off at 4, she drags Sarray from the corner and covers, TWO! Mandy drags Sarray up but Sarray rolls Mandy! TWO, and Sarray runs in to wheelbarrow. Mandy turns that to a FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Mandy is annoyed but she drags Sarray to another cover, TWO! Mandy dribbles Sarray off the mat, then covers again, TWO as Sarray goes Matrix!

Sarray basement dropkicks Mandy down! Fans fire up, duel, and Mandy hurries after Sarray. Sarray blocks the lariat to CHOP! And then again! Sarray fires off forearms, but Mandy kicks low. Mandy whips but Sarray blocks! Sarray springboards to arm-drag! Then drop toehold! Sarray fires up and goes to a corner. Sarray goes up, Mandy stands, and Sarray missile dropkicks! Mandy tumbles away and Sarray hurries to get her up. Sarray hooks an arm, PERFECT PLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! Mandy survives but Sarray keeps her eyes on Mandy as she goes to a corner. Sarray runs in but Mandy pops her up and hits a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Mandy is frustrated and runs in, KNEE FROM A ROSE!! Cover, Mandy wins!

Winner: Mandy Rose, by pinfall

Mandy tells Zoey Stark she is going to get this at Heatwave! And by that, she means the chair she’s getting! The ref tells Mandy to stop but Mandy taunts Sarray with the title belt. Mandy grabs the chair, looms over Sarray, and she JAMS Sarray in the legs! And then again! And again! And again! Then she puts the chair around a leg, but here comes Stark! Stark rallies on Mandy with lariats! And a SUPERKICK! Mandy wobbles, Stark reels her in but Mandy scrambles away! The Toxic Goddess has the belt for now, but Stark says time is almost up. Will the Heatwave burn Mandy’s reign down?

 

Tiffany Stratton speaks.

What sets her apart is her focus and athleticism. “When you’re a once in a lifetime athlete, you have no time for complete losers like Wendy Choo.” It’s not her fault she was born gifted. She knows she’s great, she works at it every day. She figures that’s why everyone is obsessed with her. She couldn’t stand losing the battle royal, because “Tiffany” and “loser” do not belong in the same sentence. How were other women okay with losing. Maybe if she lived a miserable existence, she’d be okay with it, too. But she doesn’t, so she isn’t. And then Wendy threatened Tiffany that the next time they meet, it won’t be pretty. Whatever, Wendy. Everything Tiffany does is pretty.

Tiffany finishes a floor routine and moves on to shopping. Tootles! But when and where will Wendy catch up to Tiffany to turn her life into a waking nightmare?

 

Backstage interview with Axiom.

McKenzie congratulates the newest masked wrestler on his victorious debut, and he thanks her. He is very excited to be in NXT, and his timing couldn’t have been more perfect. But Duke Hudson walks in to say Axiom doesn’t belong here. There’s a lot of change happening in NXT, which is why he’s always ready. It’s anyone’s ball game, but just not Axiom’s. He’s undersized and undeserving. Meanwhile, Duke is 6’5″, 270 pounds. Well, okay, 265 because he’s been slimming down. But the differences between them are night and day. Axiom is not afraid of duke. Oh, well good for him. NERD! Duke SLAPS Axiom but Axiom fights back!

Duke CLUBS Axiom and the brawl continues into the back! Duke ROCKS Axiom, clamps onto him, but Axiom CHOPS! Duke RAMS Axiom into the wall! Then kicks him through a doorway. Duke drags Axiom along but Axiom CHOPS back! Duke knees low, CLUBS him, and they end up at gorilla! Duke ROCKS Axiom, ROCKS him again, and now they’re going to the ramp! Duke throws off his jacket but Axiom CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Duke hauls Axiom up to run down the ramp and RAM him into the ring! Fans boo at Duke but he puts Axiom in the ring. Duke stomps Axiom, kicks him, and then hauls him up for a scoop and SWINGING SIDE SLAM!

Fans are torn as Duke flexes. The smug bully goes outside to then grab a mic. “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you don’t believe in your heroes. They’ll always let you down.” Fans boo as Duke leaves. But Axiom gets the mic to shout, “YOU! Things have changed, but you’re wrong! I can make it! And I can prove it! Right here, right now!” Axiom wants a match after all that brawling?! Duke says why not! A ref appears, and the match is on!

Duke Hudson VS Axiom!

The bell rings and Axiom leaps! But Duke catches him to RAM him into the corner! Duke RAMS into Axiom again and again, then he hauls Axiom up top. Axiom kicks back but Duke BOOTS Axiom down! Duke goes out but Axiom KICKS him. Duke CLUBS Axiom, RAMS him into the apron, then puts him in the ring. Duke storms in, Axiom KICKS him again and again! And again! Axiom dodges Duke to springboard dropkick the leg out! Fans fire up and Axiom runs in at the corner, but into Duke’s URENAGE! Duke winces but even one leg is good enough. Duke hobbles after Axiom then rains down fists.

Duke stomps Axiom, drops a knee, then another! Duke runs to drop ax handles! Fans duel, “Duke’s My Hero!” “No, He’s Not!” Axiom kicks from below again, but Duke drags him into the gut wrench and crucifix. THE RIVER- RANA!! Axiom sends Duke into buckles, then runs to tilt-o-whirl wheelbarrow and victory roll! AXIOM WINS!!

Winner: Axiom, by pinfall

Duke is freaking out! Axiom got him off guard, will Duke ever live this down?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

The Must-See Kid says throughout his career, he has overcome odds. But Trick got the better of him. And what really irks Lee is that Trick thinks he’s the second coming of Muhammed Ali. The Great American Bash, the entrance, and then he blinds Lee to get the win. Then last week, he replicated the most iconic image in boxing of Muhammed Ali over Frazer. Ali is a legend. Trick’s a legend in his own mind. Ali influenced millions while Trick annoys millions. Okay, no more trash talk.

Lee says next week, we get the best of both worlds. Trick can bring his so-called boxing skills while Lee brings the wrestling. And they can even do it in a British Rounds Match, to see who is better at the sweet science. What’s it going to be, Trick? Your move!

And clinch for another OVERHEAD suplex! Fans fire up as Julius whips Tony, hurdles, then DROPKICKS! Julius fires up and brings down the straps, but Tony elbows him away. DOUBLE BOOTS take both men down! Fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” while Julius checks his jaw. Julius crawls over, but Stacks trips Brutus! Brutus snarls and chases Stacks around the ring!

Roxanne Perez speaks.

“For the past three weeks, I’ve been dealing with almost every emotion possible. First, I was in total shock. Cora was my big sisters. We were two broke girls traveling, just trying to get noticed. Leaning on each other to get by, and pushing each other to get better. I was the #1 Cora Jade fan. then, I get to NXT. We were both doing so good! The fans were getting behind us! When my friends succeed, I succeed. When they win, I win, and we won! We were unstoppable. Toxic Attraction had been a thorn in Cora’s side for so long, I decided to use my contract. I didn’t see who attacked me from behind, I assumed it was Toxic, and I wasn’t gonna let Toxic stop me.

“For Cora to do what she did, it really hurt me. Never in a million years did I think my best friend would do that to me. Our friendship meant more than that woman’s title. I never want to be associated with Cora ever again. I know Cora better than anyone on this planet, and she wants to call me a selfish bitch? I was there all those times she needed me. For a week, I was in denial. But that turned into anger when I watched Cora throw her NXT Women’s Tag title in the trash! We dreamed of becoming champions for so long, and she throw’s it in the trash!? I don’t know who this Cora is. My best friend is long gone.

“Okay, bitch. We both know the truth, You want me out of your life? I couldn’t agree more. So let’s settle this once and for all, in two weeks at Heatwave.” There is major heat between the former friends, but who is the one that gets burned?

 

Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

McKenzie notes the comments from Roxanne just now, what is Cora’s response to the challenge? “Absolutely NOT. If only Roxanne was as good in the ring as she is an actress. Don’t fall for her sob story. She just wants to make me look like the bad guy. Right now in the WWE, in NXT, I’m the talk of the town. It’s me, Bayley, Roman. So of course, Roxanne just wants a match against me to elevate her career once again. No thanks, I’m done with that charity case. She wants a match? Uh-uh, bitch. Speaking of one…” Mandy Rose is here but she assures Cora, it’s to talk business.

Zoey Stark needs to be stopped, and Mandy saw what Cora did last week, so maybe Cora could do it again and they can get rid of Stark once and for all. Typical Mandy. A one-sided deal that only benefits herself. Hard pass. Mandy wants Cora to hold on, this is two grown women talking. Listen, look at this: if Cora takes out the #1 contender, the person that steps in is the runner up. That person is Cora. Then Cora doesn’t even have to worry about Roxie, she’ll be the one facing Mandy at Heatwave. Cora says she’ll give it some thought, “Little girl.” Cora sasses the Toxic Goddess, will she be the one in control now?

 

Backstage interview with Kayden & Katana.

McKenzie congratulates the NEW NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, and Katana says they can’t believe it. They’ve been through hell and back. They’ve been cheated, slighted, but they didn’t stop and they finally did it! Kayden says that Katana is her rock. They’ve been through the best of times, the worst of times, and times where they wanted to quit. But they never stopped, they kept moving forward, and that journey made this moment so much sweeter. KC Squared thanks those who never gave up on them, and now the titles are where they belong, and this is where they’ll stay!

 

Brooks Jensen w/ Josh Briggs & Fallon Henley VS Joe Gacy w/ The Dyad!

Jensen made the challenge, Gacy accepted it, and now they’ll settle this in the ring! Will Gacy send that message to Grimes? Or will Jensen send a message of his own?

NXT returns as Gacy & The Dyad make their entrance. The bell rings and the two tie right up. Gacy powers Jensen back, Jensen turns it around at the ropes, but Gacy ROCKS him with a cheap shot. Jensen blocks a whip to revere and clothesline in the corner! And again, and again! Jensen whips corner to corner then back drops Gacy on the rebound! Fans fire up as Jensen JABS, JABS, two steps and ROLLING ELBOWS! Fans fire up and Jensen goes out to go around and DRIVE-BY DROPKICK! Jensen shows off the denim short shorts as he gets in, but Gacy rolls him up and reels him in, DDT!

Gacy stomps Jensen, puts him in a corner and CHOPS! Jensen ROCKS Gacy, Gacy CHOPS and throws body shots! Gacy fires off hands but Jensen gives them back! Fans fire as the hands keep going, and Jensen ROCKS Gacy! Gacy kicks back, whips Jensen to ropes but Jensen ducks and whips. Gacy reverses again and ROCKS Jensen in the corner! Then side to side for a SLINDING FOREARM! Jensen flounders, Gacy hangs upside-down like a bat! Gacy stalks Jensen, reels him in, URENAGE! Gacy then drops a BIG elbow, covers, TWO! Fans rally and Briggs coaches Jensen, but Gacy tells him to stay down!

Gacy headbutts, hands fly again, and Jensen slips off a scoop to shove and WHEEL KICK! The country boy can fly! But then the Dyad creeps over towards Fallon. Briggs coaches Jensen but Fallon asks the Dyad what’s their damage. Briggs notices and gets between Fallon and the Dyad, but here comes Pretty Deadly!! Jensen sees them coming, though, and he TOSSES Elton Prince, then DECKS Kit Wilson! But Gacy handsprings and LARIATS! Cover, Gacy wins!!

Winner: Joe Gacy, by pinfall

pretty deadly assist, and Gacy says Grimes’ life has been divided by disappointment and loss. “That is no way to live. The only way to change your life is with the help of others. And I know you’re a proud man, that’s why I’m reaching out to you. I can fill the emptiness in your soul. You know deep, deep in your heart that I am right.” Gacy has a creepy smile on his face, what lurks behind it?

Speaking of Grimes, he and others are watching this backstage. Someone points it out to Grimes that Gacy was talking to him. Yeah, he knows that. Grimes storms off, but how will he respond?

 

Tony D finishes up a phone call.

Uh-huh, yeah. That’s not what they talked about! Thanks for nothing! Damn that prick, Santos! Without him, Tony would be North American Champion, Tag Team Champion, and they’d be strapped with cash! Stacks says even Lopez was in on that! After all they did for that trash! But what’re they gonna do? It’s 4v2! Tony says they’re cheap. But wait, here comes a call from Santos. Santos mocks Tony on the loss. And also, how’s the jaw? Oh, real cute, you comedian. That’s two titles! Where are you!? Oh, after Tony put him in the hospital, they’re almost even. Almost. Well next time they see each other, Santos is DONE!

Santos tells Tony that they both know Santos can’t work for him and Tony won’t work for Santos, and they sure can’t work together. Yeah, genius? Listen up. One last match, this ends. No Stacks, no Legado! Just 1v1. One final accord? You’ve got it, Don. But where? Somewhere where they can see each other coming a mile away. What does Tony have planned for this final chapter between wrestling godfathers?

 

Alba Fyre VS Lash Legend!

The Firekeeper is raging the WNBA star turned wrestling superstar trying to snuff her out. Will Fyre be like a phoenix and rise from the ashes? Or will Lash continue to build her legend with Fyre as the foundation?

NXT is picture in picture as Lash makes her entrance. The bell rings and Lash rushes in, but Fyre dodges to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Lash ends up in a corner, Fyure CHOPS her, kicks her, then TORNADO- NO, Lash throws Fyre away. But Fyre kicks out a leg, to then DDT Lash down! Cover, TWO! Fyre fires up and she drags Lash back up. Fyre whips but Lash blocks! Lash ROCKS Fyre, whips her to ropes, then follows to BOOT her down! Lash swaggers and soaks up the heat, then she drags Fyre back up. Lash dribbles Fyre off the mat, then SLAMS her down. Lash drags Fyre back up to reel her in for a cravat and then a turn.

Lash stretches Fyre back with a neckbreaker rack, but Fyre endures. Fyre pries at the hold, but Lash stands back up  to hit a NECKBREAKER! Lash talks trash, drags Fyre up, and NXT returns to single picture. Lash whips Fyre to a corner then CLOBBERS her on the rebound. Lash looms over Fyre, talks more trash, then dribbles her again! Fyre throws body shots but Lash CLUBS Fyre down. Lash drags Fyre up, Fyre throws more body shots and then gets a leg. Lash pries Fyre off to have a BOW ‘N’ ARROW RACK!

Lash kips up but fans boo as she soaks up the heat. Lash stands on Fyre, but Fyre pushes her away. Lash drags Fyre up, whips, but Fyre reverses and sends Lash into buckles! TORNADO DDT! Fans fire up as Fyre hurries to the corner. Fyre climbs, fans rally, but Lash ROCKS Fyre first! Lash climbs up then brings Fyre up, but Fyre fights off the superplex. Fyre DECKS Lash off the corner, then adjusts to leap, but Lash dodges! Lash gets the bat but Fyre SUPERKICKS her first!

Fyre SUPERKICKS Lash again! Then Fyre hooks Lash up, for the Gory Especial to the GORY BOMB! Fyre hurries back up top and fans fire up again! SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, Fyre wins!

Winner: Alba Fyre, by pinfall

Lash played with Fyre, and she got burned! Will Fyre use this to blaze a trail to the top of NXT?

 

Melo & Trick talk backstage.

Trick explains to Melo the rules of the NXT UK British Rounds matches. Six minute rounds, each three minutes long, with about 20 seconds of rest in between. First one to two falls wins, so that’s pins, submissions and count-outs. Unless Trick knocks Wes out cold, haha! Him and his crying ass. A young woman walks over and asks if Melo & Trick can help with their engine problems. Well, yeah! They do it all. Trick & Melo get under the hood. Do they have jumper cables?

 

Nikkita Lyons speaks.

Kiana James, I saw your PowerPoint presentation on me, but you didn’t have to dig too deep because I’m an open book. I own who I am, and I am damn proud of where I come from. I didn’t have to do any research on you, Kiana, because I’ve dealt with girls like you my entire life. You think you’re better than everyone, you think you can judge me just because I don’t fit in the small box that you think a woman should look and act like. Well, take a real good look, Kiana. Because this is who I am, and I am not changing for anybody, especially you. Now, if you wanna try and change my mind, you can come find me next week. I’ll be waiting in the middle of the ring.”

 

Falls Count Anywhere: Solo Sikoa VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

The Street Champion of the Island says this ISN’T Wagner’s World, and throwing grown men around only gets you so far. Will Solo prove that the bigger they are, the harder they fall? Or will Von’s vicious streak stop Solo’s run at the top of NXT?

The bell rings and the two rush each other! Solo dodges, CHOPS and ROCKS, repeat! Solo whips Von, CLOBBERS Von, then stalks him out of the ring. Solo stalks Von around the way, and runs him over! Then SENTONS on the floor! Cover, TWO! Solo CHOPS Von, Von ROCKS Solo, repeat! Solo knees low, puts Von back in the ring, then ROCKS him with an uppercut! Solo whips Von to a corner, runs in and SPLASHES! Von staggers into Solo’s scoop and SLAM! Solo then runs to FALLING HEADBUTT! Cover, TWO! Von scrambles to a corner but Solo goes to the opposite. Fans rally, “UCE! SO!” Solo runs in to HIP ATTACK!

Fans fire up with Solo while Von flops out of the ring. Solo pursues, Stone distracts him, and Von RAMS Solo into apron. Then RAMS him into steel steps! Von pulls the steps apart, drags Solo over, and he SMACKS Solo off the base! Fans rally for Solo and taunts Von, but Von drags the base steps around towards the ramp. Von then puts the steps in the ring and brings Solo over. Von CLUBS Solo, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Von gets chairs! Von puts those in a couple at a time, then gets in to take aim. Von JAMS Solo, then SMACKS him on the back! Solo writhes but Von SMACKS him again! And again!

Von sets the chair down, drags Solo up, and fans rally as Von back suplexes Solo on the chair! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up while Von paces. Von SMACKS Solo with the chair again, and then SMACKS him again! Solo clutches his arm but Von SMACKS away! Solo rolls away to ropes but Von sits the chair up.

They’re talking up the ladies with the car trouble, but Solo PIE FACES Melo into the back seat! Trick is mad, but Von attacks Solo!

Von fires off haymakers, Solo hits back. Von RAMS Solo into big fencing! And then fireman’s carries, to DUMP Solo in the dumpster! Stone says to shut it!

Fans are thunderous as Solo goes up the corner! Solo aims, for a SUPER FLYING SOLO!! The desk is destroyed!! Solo covers Von in the wreckage, and Solo wins!!

Winner: Solo Sikoa, by pinfall

The bigger they are, the harder they fall! And because Solo’s pretty big himself, that leap from the top was massive! Solo gets a huge win, is he finally on to bigger and better in NXT?


My Thoughts:

In the HHH Era of WWE Creative across the board, and in the post-SummerSlam week, we just got one hell of an NXT! Opening with the NXT Women’s Tag Team Match was a great choice, because the match had so much time to breathe. I am so glad that Toxic Attraction didn’t win. This was the moment we needed actual new tag champions, and Kayden & Katana were the right choice. This is a new phase in their team’s story, they can take on Ivy & Tatum as well as Leon & Feroz and any other teams that form. Toxic Attraction had a great freak out, too, including Mandy’s part in it.

But what BS for Mandy to beat Sarray in a four paragraph match. Sarray is challenging Meiko Satomura for the NXT UK Women’s title, and could possibly “return” from the UK with the title. Sarray was red hot before the change to NXT 2.0, she deserves to be that again now that HHH is in charge of everything. But at least we got Stark running off Mandy. A good promo from Roxanne to respond to Cora, and Cora had a decent response to Roxanne. Mandy trying to cut a deal with Cora and then Cora telling her no was a great bit, though. Heels don’t need to get along, because duh, they’re Heels. Cora is still having a match with Stark all the same, but maybe Roxie attacks Cora to force their grudge match.

Nikkita Lyons had a good promo to respond to Kiana James, and their match is going to be good, but obviously a win for Lyons. At least, I would think. Tiffany had a very good promo to put herself over and talk trash on Wendy. There has to be something Wendy does that compels Tiffany to give her another match, and that could even happen at Heatwave. Fyre VS Lash was pretty good but I figured Fyre would win. After everything with Mandy, Cora, Roxie and Stark sorts out, Fyre probably has a match with whoever is champion. Honestly, hoping Stark takes the title at Heatwave, and then Stark can start to prove herself against big names like Fyre.

The interaction and match between Axiom and Duke was interesting. I should’ve figured Duke would turn into a bully of the comic book loving mathlete, but it was a great bit of David VS Goliath with Axiom getting the better of Duke. I hope they let Axiom give a promo where he shows us he was going after that leg to weaken it to make it harder on Duke to kick out of that victory roll. But ironically, it’s The Irish Ace who was given this “cerebral dissector” kind of character. He and Bron had a decent contract signing segment, but Jordan Devlin is still being restrained a bit by this new personality. As long as the match is awesome, it should be alright, though.

Awesome tag team match, and what a great moment for Legado to mutiny against Tony D. Creeds retain so that Diamond Mine can continue their story with passive aggressive Roddy and the rest of the group getting sick of his crap. And then this “Final Accord” between Escobar and Tony, I would love if that was a cinematic match like NXT gave Ciampa and Gargano in their “final chapter.” Who knows how it goes, but it’d make sense if Escobar won to give Tony some true comeuppance. And if not, then maybe Legado del Fantasma is “run out of” NXT so that they can all go to RawDown together as a faction to really spice things up.

An interesting interaction in the NXT UK Tag champions and The Schism. Gacy seems to be obsessed with all second generation wrestlers since he is a single generation, and he got a very good match out of Jensen. They also seem specifically interested in Fallon joining them as their female stable member. It is pretty decent continuity, actually, since Gacy had Fallon as one of the three wrestlers lined up for his All Inclusive Challenge. Who knows how that goes, but Pretty Deadly screwed Jensen over, so there’s a lot building for the NXT UK tag titles stateside. Maybe a Triple Threat, Briggs & Jensen VS Pretty Deadly VS Grizzled Dyad?

I loved how that Open Challenge went. Melo did say whoever gets in the ring, not who gets on stage first. So Frazer slips in, takes the match, gives Melo a run for his money, but of course Vinci makes sure Frazer loses. Frazer VS Vinci 1v1 will be awesome, too, I can’t wait to see it. Wes had a good promo to call out Trick, and them having a British Rounds Match is going to be a lot of fun. And of course, a really good Falls Count Anywhere out of Solo and Von. I do like the cameos from Melo, Trick and Grimes. All that could be a tease that the North American Championship is soon going to have another big ladder match, with Melo, Grimes, Solo, Von, Vinci and Frazer as our six. Solo of course wins, and with a great table spot. If nothing else, Solo finally has next up against Melo 1v1.

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.

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!

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!

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. 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!

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!

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?

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.

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.

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?

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

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.
