PLAY BY PLAY

Becky Lynch is here!

The Man didn’t get the title back, and now she has an arm in a sling. If not for those things, she’d be happier to be in Houston. Becky gets the mic while fans cheer her on. “Houston, welcome to the Big Time! Now, in everything that I do, I give it my all. And in the past, I’ve talked about hitting rock bottom, and I’ve talked about not knowing who I was when I lost the title at WrestleMania. But at SummerSlam, I am happy to say I remembered who the hell I am. And it ain’t in the fancy clothes, and it ain’t in the constant need for glory or validation, no. It is in the determination. It is in the persistence. It is in the relentlessness. It is in owning every mistake I ever made.

“It is in the pursuit to be better today than I was yesterday.” Fans cheer that sentiment, and Becky says that when she separated her shoulder at SummerSlam, she had two choices: give up, or give it everything she had. And so, she grit her teeth and fought through the 20 most painful minutes of her career. And believe her, they were painful, but not as much as realizing that she had become separated from reality. She did what she had to do, not only for herself but for the greatest women’s division ever! For all the women who work their asses off every single week in the back.

And so, when the referee counted three, her shoulders on the mat, Becky knew she had given her best, but it just wasn’t good enough. But she was reminded that she is not defined by one match. No, she defines the matches. And she is not defined by a title, SHE defines the title. And she won’t be defined by any man, because she defines THE MAN! And so, in a new ear, a new comeback story starts now. But she must give credit where it is due, and that is to the superstar who pushed her all year to be the B E S T that she can be. “Bianca Belair, get your ass out here.” Bianca obliges! Fans fire up as the RawEST Women’s Champion skips to the ring.

Fans cheer for the “E S T! E S T!” as Bianca gets a mic. Bianca tells Becky, “You not only defined The Man, but you are The Man.” The two hug it out and fans cheer more. Becky says Bianca can hold it down, and she’ll see her soon. Becky heads out as fans cheer for her again. Bianca says she has nothing but respect for Becky. And we know some people may be questioning how that can be, and best believe Bianca never forgot all the times Becky shakes her hand just to use the other to smack her in the face. But Bianca has never wanted to be handed anything. The title is only worth the amount of work put in to keep it, and Becky made Bianca put in the work.

So yes, Bianca shook Becky’s hand and there is now mutual respect. To be able to gain the respect of someone like Becky Lynch, that means something. Bianca has learned so much from Becky, and now she has a target on her back, but she will never be caught slipping. That is why she is still Raw Women’s Champion! Fans cheer that, too. Bianca says ready so she doesn’t have to get ready, and that means whoever is next. Whether it’s Bayley or her little friends who all thought it was funny to surprise Bianca at Summerslam, or- Wait, speaking of! Becky is under attack by Bayley, Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky! With a chair!!

Bianca rushes to the back as Bayley digs the chair into Becky’s bad shoulder! Bianca arrives but Bayley and her buddies have bailed already! Medics check on Becky’s arm, but when will Bianca get her hands on The Role Model and her new friends?

 

The Legacy of the WWE United States Championship.

Narrated by John “Bradshaw” Layfield. “America. A country built on opportunity deserves a champion that upholds its great legacy. A legacy of greatness is painted in red, white and blue.” Harley Race, Sgt. Slaughter, Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Scott Hall, JBL, Eddie Guerrero, John Cena, just to name a few. Ricky Steamboat was a proud champion, as were Booker T, Kofi Kingston, and now Bobby Lashley. “The United States Championship has helped shape the careers of 20+ Hall of Famers, and will continue to do so well into the future of the WWE.” And that new chapter starts NOW!

 

Logan Paul tweets his feelings after SummerSlam.

He knows he’s done a lot of crazy stuff in his life, but SummerSlam was by far the coolest. He is so addicted, he has found his calling. And he called the WWE executives, he has a multi-year, multi-event contract in the works> He is ready to get more of that energy from the jampacked arenas. He doesn’t know when or where, but we will see a massive third match and beyond. He is so happy to be part of the WWE, see you all soon!

Becky Lynch gets checked by the doctor.

She got hit with a chair, her arm got caught in the chair, can she get some ice?

Bayley talks with her new friends backstage.

She told them this is how it was going to be! They will take over. Sarah asks why Bayley targeted Becky, but Bayley asks, “Targeted? Is that what she thinks? Conceited! This isn’t about Becky and this is not about Bianca. This is about us! And you’ll see what I mean soon enough.” Bayley, Sky & Kai pass by the Usos and they all say hey. Now Sarah asks the Usos about defending their tag titles tonight against the Msyterios just days after SummerSlam. Same as they always are: 100%! SummerSlam was business as usual for the Bloodline! They beat the Profits, again. Roman Reigns beat Lesnar again. And tonight, the Usos beat the Mysterios… again! Because they the twos, and #WeTheOnes!

 

Seth Rollins is here!

The Visionary seems to be in a good mood. He didn’t get a SummerSlam match but he still got to stomp Matt Riddle down when The Bro came looking for a fight. Rollins gets a mic to welcome us to Monday Night Rollins! “And I am your host for tonight’s festivities. I am the Visionary, I am the revolutionary, I am…” Fans cheer “SETH! FREAKIN’! ROLLINS!” That’s right! And tonight is a night for celebration! Because we don’t have to see and we don’t have to hear that idiot, Riddle! Fans boo but Rollins says he gives credit where it is due. IT takes a lot of guts to do what Riddle did, showing up when he’s not cleared.

But there is a thin line between gutsy and stupid, and Riddle has crossed that stupid line more times than Rollins can count! But… There is a silver lining to this. “Riddle has wanted so badly to be like his big bro, Randy~. And now he’s on the shelf with a career threatening injury, just like Randy! HAHAHA!” Fans boo more but Rollins says there’s another silver lining. Now that Riddle is out of the way, Rollins can turn his attention… to Roman Reigns! And the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. But wait, the Street Profits are here! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have mics but Rollins says no no no no no! SHUT IT DOWN! SHUT THE MUSIC OFF! NO CUPS!!

Rollins knows the Profits- Don’t look at the fans! STOP! Fans cheer, the Profits encourage it, and Rollins gets annoyed. He knows they’re boys with Riddle but… OH SHUT UP! Rollins knows we’re in Houston, the Rockets’ home, so they’re used to watching losers! But Rollins doesn’t want to share any air space with the biggest losers in ALL the WWE! HAHAHA! How many times have the lost to the Usos now? One, two, three MILLION? Rollins lost count of that, too! The Profits suck so much as a team, they should just break up. Pack it in, go to the back, this is Rollins’ time, baby! HAHAHA!

Dawkins asks Rollins, “Didn’t we beat you to become Raw Tag Team Champions?” Ford says wait! They know who this is now! The same guy who got his ass whooped by Cody Rhodes when Cody only had one booby! Oh shut up!! You come out here for a fight, did you?! You wanna fight?! Rollins would love nothing more to come down and stomp both of them into the stage, but that’s 2v1, that’s not fair. Maybe if there was one, maybe. So split up, one of you come back, we can do this then. Or, another way. Houston, do you wanna see one of the Profits beat the crap outta Seth tonight? “YES!” Well Seth, be careful what you wish for.

So they’ll figure this out the fair and proper way. They’ll do this rock, paper, scissors! Get a ref out here! This is the only time we see the Profits fight. A ref appears and here goes. Rock, paper, scissors- Oh shoot, Ford threw his mic at Dawkins and brings the ref to the ring! But then he manages to avoid Rollins’ stomp! Rollins rushes out but Ford gets in! Rollins says that’s fine, that’s fine! He gets in again, but Ford clotheslines him out right at the bell!

But Rollins CLBOBERS him! Rollins throws down fists, KICKS Ford in the back, then stalks Ford to ropes. Rollins CHOKES Ford on the ropes, the ref counts and Rollins lets off at 4. Fans boo but Rollins snarls as he goes back for Ford. Rollins CHOPS Ford against ropes, then brings Ford around to CHOP him in the corner.

Ford CHOPS back! And CHOPS, and CHOPS! Ford whips, Rollins reverses and KNEES Ford again. Rollins whips, KNEES and whips to KNEE again! Rollins fireman’s carries to then hit a GUTBUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO! Ford is still in this but Rollins wraps on a rear bearhug. Ford endures, fans rally, and Ford fights up to his feet. Ford elbows Rollins, and again, but then Rollins ducks to hit a BIG back suplex! Rollins is frustrated but he is still in control as Ford goes to the far corner.

Ford grows frustrated but Rollins is a Grand Slam Champion, after all. Rollins stands, Ford stands, Rollins reels Ford in. Ford switches, Rollins witches, Ford slips out of the suplex this time to run and BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Ford grits his teeth, crawls to a corner and climbs up. Rollins hurries after Ford, anchors a leg, but Ford CLUBS Rollins and throws haymakers! Rollins staggers away, Ford gets back in, but Rollins PELES! Roll-up, TWO! Rollins aims, SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO! Rollins is growing frustrated with Ford’s toughness, and Rollins aims from a corner. Rollins soaks up the “OH~ OH~ OOOH~!” as he runs in, but Ford dodges!

Ford crawls to the cover, ROPEBREAK!! Rollins survives by a literal foot! Ford brushes that off to get up the corner again. But Rollins trips Ford up! Then drags him out, into a RUNNING BUCKLE BOMB!! And then FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Rollins can’t believe Ford survived that! Rollins has a wild look in his eyes as fans say “This is Awesome!” Rollins goes up a corner, laughs and says, “Who wants the smoke now, bitch?” FROG SPLASH FLOP!!

So close and yet so far for Ford, and now the Visionary has a win. But he isn’t satisfied with that, he wants to hurt Ford! Rollins aims again, but here comes Dawkins! Dawkins runs Rollins off, will the Curse of Greatness catch up with Rollins soon enough?

Bianca Belair has the title, and though Bayley is back and brought friends, the Five Foot Fury still says she’s next! Will she establish contention by defeating the Empress of Tomorrow? Or is not even Alexa ready for Asuka?

Gable says “SHOOOOSH! Houston, you have a problem. And tonight that problem comes to you in the form of Master Gable, a real athlete, an Olympian, with a brain so big and beautiful, it’s twice the size of Texas, baby!” Gable says he’ll dispose of his opponents, move on and beat that ignoramus, AJ Styles, and then beat the US Champion, Bobby Lashley, to put this country on his back again. He’ll represent us all in the way only Master Gable is able. And when he does, he won’t have to cheat. Not like that failure of a team known as the Houston Astros! A THANK YEW~!

Edge is here!

And on this day, he sees clearly! Yes, the Rated R Superstar is back to his old self again! Edge gets a mic as fans cheer him on, and he says, “Houston, thank you for that. Because to be fair, for the last few months, I’ve been a bit of an a-hole. But that all changes now, because now, we both get what we want. I’ll keep this real simple. I created Judgement Day with the thought that I was gonna help underutilized talent to realize their full potential. That maybe I could pass on some knowledge that I’ve accumulated over my 30 year career to Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley. Yeah, let ’em know.” Fans boo and Edge says he has to be honest, they were just getting started.

But apparently, that first taste of power clouded their judgment, They thought they learned all there was to learn. But they were wrong! TO be fair, along with Finn Balor, they pulled one over on him. He didn’t see that coming, and that is rare. But if you witnessed SummerSlam, you saw Edge pull himself out of the Hell they put him in! “And now it’s time to kill what I created. FINN! DAMIAN! RHEA! I am going to END Judgement Day!” Short and sweet, just as he said! Will the Rated R Superstar eradicate of the Prince, the Punisher and the Eradicator?

 

The Mysterios prepare backstage.

Father and son are ready, but Kevin Patrick walks in to first congratulate them on their win against The Judgement Day at SummerSlam, and then ask them about tonight’s tag title match. Rey says the shift in focus is possible because The Judgement Day are in their rearview. The Judgement Day has Edge to worry about. And Rey and Edge go way back, so they have no idea how much of a savage Edge can be. IN fact, Rey & Edge were once tag team champions. That is a bond that lasts forever, and Rey can’t thank Edge enough in helping Rey & Dom avenge themselves and their familia.

But as far as tonight goes, they’re about one thing and one thing only: Defeating the Usos and becoming the UNDISPUTED WWE Tag Team Champions! Here, Houston, VIVA MI RAZA! Dom and Rey are fired up, will the lucha libre lineage be the first-ever TWO-TIME father-son tag team champions?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley, Kai & Sky.

Sarah wants to bring up SummerSlam but Bayley cuts her off. They’re not talking about Bianca or Becky, are they? They’re talking about Kai, Sky and Bayley! Yes, Sarah is supposed to ask questions, but Bayley asks us, “What did you expect?” Have we not been watching the same show she’s been watching? These idiots have been on a downward spiral ever since Bayley left, so she took it as a cry for help. The WWE needed the Role Model, so she outsourced to two of the very best, who have waited far too long for this moment!

Kai says they know how to play the game. They know what they want and how to get there, and soon, they will be in full control. Sky says in Japanese and English, “Bianca, see you out there.”

Bianca Belair VS Iyo Sky!

The RawEST Women’s Champion respects Becky, so that is why it set her off that Bayley, Kai & Sky would disrespect Becky and attack her backstage. Will Bianca get some semblance of revenge by taking out the Evil Genius? Or is this just the start of the takeover?

The bell rings and Bianca and Sky rush in! Bianca RAMS Sky to a corner, bumps her off buckles, then stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Bianca lets off to RAM into Sky with more shoulders. Sky shoves Bianca away but Bianca comes back, throwing off the earrings. Bianca whips, Sky reverses but Bianca goes up and over! Bianca eggs Sky on then dropkicks her down! Bianca kips up and fans fire up, but Sky puts Bianca on the apron. Sky ducks the haymaker to HOTSHOT! Sky then goes out to the apron for an ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit and the Evil Genius is all smiles as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Bianca fights a chinlock. Bianca scoops and SLAMS Sky, goes to a corner, and she dodges Sky as she runs in. Bianca ROCKS Sky, jumps in and runs Sky over! Bianca rallies, dropkicks then kips up! Fans fire up with Bianca and she gets Sky for a chicken wing! But Sky victory rolls through to put Bianca on ropes! Sky runs in, DOUBLJ EKENES to the back! Bianca is down, Sky has her in the corner and stomps a mudhole in! Sky digs both boots in, then SWINGING KNEES her down! Cocky cover, TWO! Sky keeps on Bianca with forearms, but Bianca shoves her away. Sky catches the haymaker for a takedown!

Sky has a modified facelock but Bianca endures. Bianca drags Sky up but Sky uses that to hit a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Sky grows frustrated but this is why Bianca is the toughEST. Sky goes to a corner and climbs up, to CROSSBODY! But Bianca rolls through, brings her up, and FALL AWAY SLAMS! Fans fire up as Bianca grits her teeth and gets back up. Bianca drags Sky up with the chicken wings, to then GlamEST SLAM! And the HANDSPRING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Bianca is surprised but this is why Sky got all the NXT Women’s Championships. Bianca brings Sky up, Sky fires shots, but Bianca scoop SLAMS!

The Miz gives Ciampa a pep talk.

The US Championship’s legacy is highlighted by Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, The Miz himself, and now Ciampa! But Kevin Patrick walks over to ask them about how things didn’t go Miz’s way against Logan Paul, or in his Triple Threat tonight. But Ciampa- Oh, what part didn’t go his way? Miz got cheated against Logan Paul! A formidable fighter? Sure. An incredible athlete? Yeah. But the WWE is not a playground for an entitled YouTuber to cash a paycheck. Miz had Logan where he wanted him, he had Logan’s moveset dissected and beat. But then Styles blindsided Ciampa like the coward he ism, helping Logan get a tainted victory.

Now why would Styles do that? Was Styles the one training Logan just to beat Miz? Those are the questions we should be asking, but for tonight, Ciampa will make Styles realize he chose the wrong side. Ciampa used to respect Styles and his accomplishments, both before the WWE and coming to the WWE. But Styles chose to support a social media influencer who makes a mockery of their home! So tonight, when Ciampa crushes Styles’ dreams, it will be that much more satisfying.

Miz says to look at the passion and devotion in those eyes. Ciampa may have not helped Miz win at SummerSlam, but Miz will help Ciampa become the next elite WWE Superstar! Under Miz’s tutelage, we are looking at the NEXT WWE US Champion! Will the Hollywood A-Lister make all of Ciampa’s WWE dreams come true?

Miz celebrates with his guy, because they beat Styles for this opportunity! Will Miz help Ciampa do this to Lashley, too? Speaking of…

Backstage interview with Bobby Lashley.

The All Mighty leaves Austin Theory behind, and now has Ciampa coming next week. He wouldn’t have it any other way. Lashley wants to defend this title every week because he lives for this. Ciampa proved he is a brawler, he is tough and hungry, and that makes him dangerous. Especially with that conniving Miz in his corner. But Lashley will defeat anyone, anywhere, any time! He’s bringing respect back tot his title. Lashley humbled Theory, and he will give Ciampa a reality check by putting him in the Hurt Lock. Will the All Mighty make Ciampa and Miz pay for their plotting and scheming?

Will history repeat itself as the Bloodline beats the father and son of lucha libre? Or will Rey & Dom prove the last 379 days have made them stronger than ever?

But he isn’t done yet! Edge aims, but Rhea shoves Dom in front of the SPEAR!! Rhea laughs as she and Judgement Day run away into the night! Dom writhes while the medics check on him. Is nothing done until the Judgement Day says it’s done?


My Thoughts:

A pretty awesome Raw to follow up an awesome SummerSlam! So jam-packed, but full of stuff that not only entertains but progresses stories. Great stuff for the WWE United States Championship to really pump it and the midcard up. I would’ve thought one giant Six Man with all those contenders would’ve been good enough, but getting two separate Triple Threats and then the 1v1 match was great to give everyone time to shine, and to fill out the three hour requirement. Great to see that we got Styles VS Ciampa out of this, and of course Miz helps Ciampa win, but that’s definitely a fitting move in this story. Lashley VS Ciampa next week will also be in Cleveland, Miz’s hometown, you can beat Miz will do everything he can to help Ciampa against Lashley, and who knows which way it goes.

A big bummer Becky Lynch hurt her shoulder at SummerSlam, but we still got awesome stuff out of the Raw Women’s Division. Bianca still has allies against Bayley, Kai & Sky with Alexa Bliss and Asuka also being targets of the new faction. Even before the attack, Alexa VS Asuka was getting all sorts of stuff in. Then Bianca VS Sky was awesome match, though of course Bayley and Kai showed up, prompting Alexa and Asuka to be on Team EST. While another No Contest finish to a women’s match is a bit much, at least it was with an awesome brawl. A Six Woman Tag has to happen now, and then we see if Bianca VS Bayley for the title happens at Clash at the Castle.

We got a great promo from Rollins and the Profits, and then an awesome match out of Rollins VS Ford to show everyone that Ford is ready to go solo. Dawkins did defend Ford, but who knows how this settles out. Edge delivered his promo perfectly but I’m a little surprised he just reset to Rated R Superstar. I was expecting a hybrid of all his personas, but I guess it was just easier for everyone if he was the previous iteration. And while he calls out Judgement Day, clearly Judgement Day still wants after Mysterios. We got an awesome tag title match out of Usos VS Mysterios, but of course Usos win. Mysterios then get mugged by Judgement Day, Edge tries to help but Dom takes the worst hit. I might have called it at SummerSlam: Dom goes down, Rey & Edge reunite!

My Score: 8.9/10

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!

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!

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?

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.

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.

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

Riddle fires off palm strike after palm strike, but Priest ROCKS him! FINAL FLASH! Riddle runs, but Priest blocks this knee to BELL CLAP! And then ROLLING- ROUNDHOUSE!! Priest sits down, Riddle aims to BUZZ- NO, Priest ducks and shoves Riddle to a corner. Riddle goes up and over, Priest catches him! Riddle fights free to dragon sleeper! And gut wrench! Riddle tucks the leg, BRO DEREK!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Priest survives and even Rhea is shocked! Riddle is beside himself, but he drags Priest into a drop zone before climbing up top!

Rhea distracts Riddle, but then drops down as Priest CLUBS Riddle on the back! Priest drags Riddle into the Crucifix, for a DOM- NO, Riddle lands on his feet so Priest LARIATS him down! COMPLETE SHOT!! Cover, TWO?!?! Priest can’t believe it but Riddle survives now! Priest snarls and he aims at Riddle. Riddle rises, choke grip, SOUTH OF- NO, Riddle slips free, ducks and RK- NO!! Priest dragon sleepers but Riddle slips free! Priest springboards, into the FINAL FLASH!! Riddle hears the voices, bro! Finn gets on the apron but Riddle DECKS him! RK- NO, Priest blocks again!

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

Winner: Matt Riddle, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10

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.
