Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (8/5/22)

We’re on the road to Cardiff!



SmackDown 2022

The Tribal Chief will address the Scottish Warrior!

Roman Reigns is STILL Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, but he knows SmackDown’s Drew McIntyre is coming after him at Clash at the Castle! What will the Head of the Table have to say about his new challenger?


  • Happy Corbin VS Ricochet; Ricochet wins.
  • WWE Intercontinental Championship Contender’s Match: Shinsuke Nakamura VS Ludwig Kaiser w/ GUNTHER; Nakamura wins and will challenge Gunther for the title next week.
  • The Viking Raiders VS Jim Mulkey & Tommy Gibson; The Viking Raiders win.
  • Kofi Kingston VS Erik w/ Ivar; Kofi wins.
  • SmackDown Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Gauntlet: Shayna Baszler wins and will challenge Liv Morgan for the title at Clash at the Castle.


Pat McAfee gives us telestration of his match with Happy Corbin.

He pauses when Corbin bumps into the referee, and uses the yellow pen to circle the ref going down. Then he circles Corbin and himself to show the spacing. McAfee kicks Corbin’s balls through the upright, then says “SUCK IT!” before going up top. McAfee has that moment replay a couple times, actually. McAfee circles his right foot that has made millions (AND MILLIONS) of dollars, and then he has an arrow point from his eyes to “the tiny prize,” and that was all she wrote! The foot starts swinging, the balls start ringing! And look at that big dumb face! McAfee writes “OUCH, MAH BALLS!” for Corbin in a speech bubble. A storybook moment, McAfee has never been prouder.

Corbin is watching this, too.

As are a lot of the other superstars of SmackDown. And of course, everyone is laughing at Corbin. It’s not funny! Ricochet says karma is a beautiful thing. Well how about Corbin wipe Ricochet’s smile off his mouth! Sure, as soon as Corbin’s done pouting back here, they can “kickoff” SmackDown. Ricochet will head to the ring, and both he and his smile will wait for Corbin. Will Sad Corbin be able to redeem himself from what happened to him at SummerSlam?

Happy Corbin VS Ricochet!

Ricochet then springboards up and over, but Corbin gets under! END OF- NO, Ricochet slips out, tiger wall kick and ENZIGURI! Corbin bails out, Ricochet builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp and Greensville fires up! Corbin hurries back into the ring but Ricochet climbs up top. Ricochet leaps, but Corbin gets under, slides out and slides in to LARIAT! McAfee applauds because he does appreciate Corbin’s ability. Just needs to be a better person.

Corbin fires hands but fans mock “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Ricochet fires body shots and haymakers, then runs, but into a big elbow! Corbin tells the fans off and they boo him back. Corbin drags Ricochet up, puts him in a corner and whips corner to corner hard! Ricochet bounces off buckles and Corbin drags him back up. Corbin tosses Ricochet to the apron but Ricochet shoulders back in. Ricochet slingshots, into a HAYMAKER! Corbin drags Ricochet in, drags him up, but fans chant for “MCAFEE! MCAFEE!” Corbin knees Ricochet low, shushes the crowd then runs in, but Ricochet goes up! Corbin slides out, in but into stomps!

Ricochet goes out to BOOT Corbin from the apron! And SUPERKICK! Ricochet then MOIONSAULTS, but Corbin moves! Ricochet lands on his feet, comes back in, but Corbin alley-oops Ricochet INTO THE POST! The One and Only is down as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Corbin has Ricochet in the ring with a half nelson chinbar. Ricochet endures and the fans rally up. Ricochet fights but Corbin thrashes him around.

Ricochet CLUBS Corbin, throws hands, but Corbin choke grips! Corbin SHOVES Ricochet off to HOTSHOT off ropes!

Corbin is in the drop zone, Ricochet hurries up top! McAfee says Ricochet is gonna do something McAfee could never do! It’s the SHOOTING STAR PRESS! Cover, Ricochet wins!!

And then McAfee kicks the ball to the fans! And it’s good! Will Corbin’s frown continue to grow, too? Or will he come back after McAfee soon enough?


Sami Zayn walks the halls.

And of course, he goes to the dressing room of the Tribal Chief. He politely knocks, but what will he have to say to the Undisputed Universal Champion?

SmackDown returns, and Sami is still knocking. The Usos answer and the Honorary Uce is excited. Jey isn’t, though, but Sami wants to say, what they did at SummerSlam, mad respect. Speaking of… How is Paul Heyman? He’s fine, just needs some days off at home to rest. Okay, good. But that kinda makes sense, Sami was calling Heyman but didn’t get a response. Sami was hoping to talk to Roman, congratulate him on how great SummerSlam was. Jey says now’s not a good time. Dawg, what? It’s okay, Sami, they’ll shoot you a text when it’s okay. Well, alright, cool. Peace. But will Sami be told when it’s okay to talk to the Head of the Table?


Ronda Rousey has been fined and suspended!

After losing in admittedly controversial fashion, the Baddest Woman on the Planet perhaps lived up to that name, going after Liv Morgan and then the referee after the decision was final. Ronda will be gone just for this week, what mood will she be in when she returns?


WWE Intercontinental Championship Contender’s Match: Shinsuke Nakamura VS Ludwig Kaiser w/ GUNTHER!

The King of Strong Style has gone 1-1 with the Impeccable German of Imperium, and yet the Ring General hasn’t been happy with either result. Will he be even less happy when Nakamura wins again and gets a shot at the Intercontinental Championship? Or will Gunther have a say in how things go once again?

SmackDown returns and Imperium makes their entrance. The bell rings and Nakamura circles with Ludwig. They tie up, go around, and Ludwig chinbars then wrenches to a top wristlock. Ludwig wrangles Nakamura down, has a hammerlock and leans on the hold. Ludwig clamps on a chinlock but fans rally as Nakamura fights up. Gunther coaches Ludwig and he CLUBS Nakamura down. Ludwig sits Nakamura up to JAM an elbow into his face! Nakamura gets to a corner, Ludwig bumps him off buckles. Ludwig throws hands stomps Nakamura, then throws elbows. Ludwig lets off at the ref’s count of 4 to shout “NEIN!”

Ludwig stomps a mudhole in, but lets off at 4 again. Gunther coaches Ludwig to keep on Nakamura, and Ludwig bumps him off buckles again. Ludwig throws haymakers then stomps, but Nakamura grabs the leg! Nakamura CLUBS the leg, throws forearms and body shots and KICKS in the corner! And then he gives Ludwig BAD VIBRATIONS~! Gunther is upset but fans fire up as Nakamura says, “C’MON!” Ludwig runs in but into a knee! And a KICK! And more kicks! Ludwig blocks one but the ENZIGURI hits! Nakamura drops a knee on Ludwig’s head! Cover, TWO! Nakamura drags Ludwig up to waistlock but Ludwig wrenches out to ROCK Nakamura!

Ludwig climbs up the corner but Nakamura trips him up! TOP SHELF KNEE! Ludwig tumbles out and Gunther is furious! Nakamura runs, Ludwig gets in, things speed up, but Nakamura stops to KICK! Nakamura runs in, but into a tilt-o-whirl SLAM! Gunther is finally happy with what he sees while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns as Nakamura CLOBBERS Ludwig! Fans fire up as both men get up, and Nakamura fires of knees! Nakamura suplexes Ludwig up, hangs him out to dry and AX KICKS him down! Nakamura runs to SLIDING KNEE! Ludwig scrambles to a corner, Nakamura runs in but he blocks the boots! He puts Ludwig in the ropes, CHOP and SLIDING GERMAN! Nakamura dares Gunther to do something but Gunther tells him to focus on Ludwig. Ludwig WRECKS Nakamura with a dropkick! Gunther says he told Nakamura so. Ludwig goes out but Nakamura ELBOWS him, puts him on the apron and KNEES him into the ring!

Nakamura hurries to aim from a corner, “YAO~!” KIN- NO! UPPERCUT! Ludwig covers, TWO! Nakamura survives and Ludwig is shocked while Gunther is furious! Ludwig drags Nakamura up, Nakamura fires a forearm but Ludwig kicks away. But Nakamura boots him, only to swing into a PUMP HANDLE SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Nakamura survives again and Gunther is furious! Gunther tells Ludwig not to mess this up again, and Ludwig drags Nakamura up. Ludwig hooks Nakamura up, but Nakamura gets an ARMBAR! Ludwig stays up to STOMP, and then he covers! TWO!! Nakamura kicks, Ludwig ducks, but the WHEEL KICK hits!

Nakamura goes to the corner, runs back in, KINSHASA!! Cover, Nakamura wins!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the WWE Intercontinental Championship)

Fans fire up with the King of Strong Style, because he’s got that title match with Gunther! Gunther gets in the ring to get in Nakamura’s face, and Nakamura tells him, “C’MON!” Gunther snarls but he has no choice but to defend the title now. Will the King of Strong Style become a three-time Intercontinental Champion next week?


Backstage interview with Kofi Kingston.

A video recap plays of the Viking Raiders showing that new viciousness when they broke Xavier Woods’ ankle. Megan asks Kofi how Woods is doing. Woods is in high spirits, resting, recovering and recuperating, and he will be back soon enough. And that’s the thing: no matter how many times these “nasty, disgusting, gross, grotesque, crusty ass Vikings wanna put us down, we’re always gonna get back up. Because to us, it’s not just a gimmick when we say every day is a NEW~ Day~!” Kofi says it feels weird saying that alone without Woods or Big E. It’s been a long time since it’s just been him.

But speaking of time, it is almost time for Kofi to make the Vikings pay! And do you know why, Megan? BECAUSE~! NEW! DAY ROCKS! NEW! DAY ROCKS! Kofi is ready for revenge, but can he do it all on his own?


Sami Zayn knocks on Roman’s door again?

The Usos answer the door again and Sami apologizes. It’s just that he gets bad reception in this arena, he isn’t sure if the text was coming through or not. Jimmy says good timing, he was just about to text Sami. Oh, well, then can he go in there? Well, they need a favor first. See, usually with Heyman here, he’s handling stuff backstage. He’s usually talking with the production truck to make sure the graphics are good, the music is good, and the pyro is good so that Roman’s entrance is perfect. Okay, okay. Can Sami do that for them? Really? Well, that’s not really his job. He’s the Honorary Uce! Jimmy says it would mean a lot to Roman.

Well… Okay. Tell Roman that Sami is taking care of this. He’ll get all the pyro. Sami heads off, but is this really for Roman? Or just so that Sami leaves the Bloodline alone tonight?


Liv Morgan is here!

Kayla Braxton is in the ring to introduce the SmackDown Women’s Champion, as well as interview her. SummerSlam, Liv was in the ring with a very vengeful Ronda. Ronda thought she won, but then snapped when she found out she lost. And Liv’s arm is in a brace while Ronda is suspended. What has Liv been feeling since Saturday? Liv says she is feeling so many different things. But when she looks at her title… She hears fans chant “YOU TAPPED OUT!” and she says this is why she wanted to come out here. She needs to address the elephant in the room. Fans keep chanting it but Liv says she appreciates being called out on her ish.

But what Liv wants to say about that, is that this championship means everything to her. its’ why shew as able to withstand armbar after armbar. She survived three of Ronda Rousey’s armbars, and yes she did tap, after she thought it was three. So she knows that when Ronda comes back- Wait! Here comes Sonya Deville! Sonya tells Liv that this is sad to see. Maybe we need a hard dose of reality. Liv can be all noble in front of the people, and some will buy it because they’re dumb. But they both know that Liv shouldn’t be champ right now. C’mon! This is pathetic, honestly. But what made Sonya happy: watching Ronda get her hands on Liv after Liv screwed Ronda.

But Sonya says it is also a testament to how bad Adam Pearce sucks at his job. But standing here, face to face, looking Liv in the eyes, Sonya really loves seeing Liv all hurt. So here’s what happens: Sonya wins tonight’s gauntlet match, and then she bets Liv at Clash at the Castle and break her heart because she takes away what Liv loves most. But wait! Here comes another of the gauntlet competitors, Aliyah! Because she and Sonya are first up! Will “Cruella” survive to the end? Or will #Aliyah317 take Sonya out real quick?

SmackDown Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Gauntlet!

Liv watches ringside as the bell rings and the two tie up. Aliyah headlocks, Sonya powers out, but Aliyah runs her over! Aliyah blows a kiss, runs, but into a big back elbow! Sonya then runs to KNEE Aliyah down! Sonya drags Aliyah up, puts her in the ropes and CHOKES her! The ref counts, Sonya lets off at 4, but Aliyah rolls Sonya up! TWO, and Sonya kicks low. Sonya fireman’s carries but Aliyah slips off and shoves Sonya to ropes. Sonya ducks, then comes back to hit a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Sonya drags Aliyah up to thrash her around in a SLEEPER!

He did get into a fight with the production guy, it was a whole thing, but he has to talk with Roman right now. Uce, it ain’t gonna happen tonight. Really? C’mon, man! This is just them giving him the runaround. Is he part of the group or not? Is he not the Honorary Uce or not? Jey has had it! Sami wants the truth? The truth is, The Bloodline leveled up at SummerSlam! Roman has two belts! The Usos have four! If Sami doesn’t pull his weight around here, he’ll be taking that Bloodline shirt off real soon.

Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat! The Power of Positivity holds it down for Kofi going solo, but will he be able to hold onto this momentum until Woods returns?


WWE has an announcement on the Women’s Tag Team Championships!

After being vacated roughly a month ago, this Monday Night Raw in Cleveland begins a tournament to crown NEW Women’s Tag Team Champions! Who will fight through the bracket to change their legacies with these titles?


The Bloodline heads to the ring!

And Sami Zayn got them a new graphic! The three heads are on one massive tree! Roman Reigns is still Undisputed WWE Universal Champion and the Usos are still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions after a HUGE night on SummerSlam last Saturday. But even without Paul Heyman, the belts are still raised for the pyro, and then again when the Tribal Chief and the Usos get in the ring. Jimmy takes care of handing Roman the mic while fans cheer him on. Roman takes a moment to hear the crowd before saying, “Greensville, South Carolina… ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” Fans cheer, happy to raise up the fingers for #WeTheOnes.

“Well you know the deal. We defend these titles, we win the big one, and then we come back to SmackDown to brag about what we accomplished. But there’s a few things that need to be addressed before we get into all that. Number one: Let’s talk about Brock Lesnar.” Fans boo and Roman says he gets it. He HATES Brock Lesnar. But, Roman respects Brock Lesnar. But he still HATES Brock Lesnar! Lesnar tried to kill the Wise Man, which is why they’re without their Special Counsel tonight. They don’t know when he’ll be back, but this is what happens. When you get an F5 through a table, you end up in the hospital. So Roman wishes Heyman to get well soon.

But wait!! Drew McIntyre is here! The Scottish Warrior storms out on stage and has a mic of his own! McIntyre tells Roman the “Tribal Queef” that he knew Roman would talk until we’re off the air. The fans have heard enough, and McIntyre just wants to get his hands on Roman! McIntyre can’t wait for Clash at the Castle. If you want McIntyre to tear up the Bloodline right now, let him hear you scream! Fans scream, but wait, what’s this? This music… It can’t be! But there’s Scarlett Bordeaux on stage! So where’s- KARRION KROSS ATTACKS MCINTYRE FROM BEHIND! Kross came through the crowd to surprise McIntyre!

Fans are losing their minds over the return of Mr. Doomsday! Kross rains down fists, then RAMS McIntyre into the steel steps! And dribbles his head off them! Kross roars as he watches McIntyre flounders away! Kross takes aim, DOOMSDAY FOREARM!! Kross has just destroyed the #1 Contender! Not that the Bloodline seems to care. But then Scarlett puts an hourglass in the ring, and turns it over. As the sands run down, she and Kross are telling Roman that tick tock, his time is running out! Will the Tribal Chief take this threat seriously? Or will he refuse to #FallAndPray?

My Thoughts:

What a great SmackDown to follow the great Raw after an awesome SummerSlam! Great opening bit with McAfee using a telestrator to go John Madden on his match with Corbin, and it was clever to use that to give us a match with Corbin and Ricochet. And of course Corbin loses from focusing too much on McAfee and not on Ricochet. Ricochet gets a very good win here, and it could lead to Ricochet being right behind Nakamura in the Intercontinental Championship race. Nakamura VS Ludwig Part 3 was very good, and of course Nakamura got the win. The title match is next week for a great ratings grab, but I just don’t know if Nakamura wins that. Nakamura would definitely be a big feather in Gunther’s cap for this reign of his.

An interesting play for the Viking Raiders to squash enhancement talent then have Erik take Kofi on 1v1 in the same night. I would’ve thought Kofi firing off on the Vikings with the kendo stick was enough, but I suppose the Vikings weren’t going to leave it at just the sneak attack. But Kofi winning by a roll-up is fine, it shows he “survived” Erik, and maybe we’ll get Kofi VS Ivar next week to see if he can survive again. And great segments out of Sami and the Usos. I knew from the very first one that Jey just wanted to tell Sami off, so him snapping in the final one makes sense. Sami “pulling his weight” either means he goes back for the Intercontinental Championship, or he helps Roman screw McIntyre over at Clash at the Castle.

Liv delivered well on her promo responding to the controversy of her win, but the fan reaction was a little curious to me personally. I suppose most fans do still like Ronda, so they’re upset Liv won that way, but I don’t expect Greensville to change WWE’s mind on Liv being Face. Especially after seeing the gauntlet match. That was a great match, with a great performance from Raquel taking out the majority of the field. But in the end, with Liv being Face, it makes sense a Heel wins out, and it makes even more sense that it is Shayna. Shayna is a training partner and friend of Ronda’s, with a very similar moveset, so Liv will basically have to worry about surviving the same menacing submission attacks.

Great to hear we’re finally getting the women’s tag title tournament as they promised a month ago, I can’t wait to see how that goes. And we got a great closing segment from The Bloodline, McIntyre, and the surprising return of Karrion Kross! Kross was let go after being used more like a joke than a menacing wrestler under Vince, so it’s great that HHH or someone on his team got Kross to return. Kross finally has Scarlett with him on the main roster, as well as all the other parts of his NXT 1.0 packaging, so he’ll finally feel how he should to the RawDown audience. Now, I don’t see him taking McIntyre’s spot at Clash, but Kross could always be in the background of the title scene, perhaps getting his shot at Extreme Rules.

My Score: 8.8/10

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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!

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! Rollins climbs up, brings Rey up, but Rey throws body shots! Rey HEADBUTTS Rollins away, but Rollins springs right back up! Rey fights with body shots and shoves Rollins away again! Then SEATED SENTONS!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Seth Rollins, by submission

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

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

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

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

Johnny Gargano & Kevin Owens head for gorilla.

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

Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano VS The Alpha Academy!

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

The teams sort out and Gargano starts against Gable. They tie up, Gable headlocks, spins and hammerlocks to a drop toehold. Gable then floats back to a headlock and grinds the hold. Gargano powers up and out, Gable runs him over, ‘A THANK YEW~!” Things speed up, fans sing “GA-BLE~, GABLE GABLE GABLE~… GA-BLE~! GA-BLE~!” as Gargano RANAS and wheelbarrows Gable to an arm-drag!

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

AJ Styles heads to gorilla.

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

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

Omos & MVP head to gorilla now.

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

Theory regroups with The Alpha Academy backstage.

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

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

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

Finn Balor talks with Judgement Day backstage.

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

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

Sami Zayn w/ Solo Sikoa VS AJ Styles!

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

The bell rings and the two circle. Sami backs away to a corner as fans cheer him on, but Styles tunes that out.

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

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

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

Bianca, Alexa & Asuka are having fun backstage.

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

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

Matt Riddle VS Damian Priest w/ The Judgement Day!

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

The bell rings and Riddle circles with Priest. The fans chant “BRO! BRO! BRO!” and Riddle smirks. Riddle and Priest tie up, Priest puts Riddle in the corner but Riddle pushes back.

He TOSSES Riddle to a corner! But Riddle blocks the haymaker into a TRIANGLE, which he makes into a RANA that throws Priest up and out! Riddle is on the apron, Finn gets Priest out of the way, meaning Finn takes the PENALTY KICK! Riddle LEAPS at Priest, but Priest DECKS him out of the sky! Priest then suplexes for a BROKEN ARROW onto the barriers!! Riddle shouts in pain while Priest roars triumphantly, and Raw goes to break!

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

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


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.
