Robin, Arkalis, and King Jaguar vs El Perverso, King Rocker, and Joker

I was hoping Joker would start with Robin because it would fit my current playing of Batman Arkham Knight. Anyway, Joker starts with Arkalis and it quickly evolves into them working on getting better position on each other. King Rocker comes in to work on Arkalis after Joker tags out. They grapple for a bit until Arkalis tags in Jaguar. Jaguar and Rocker then start to grapple. Perverso enters to a back drop by Jaguar. Robin gets in with Perverso and the action speeds up. Joker comes in and hits a slingblade on Robin so my fantasy is complete. Joker flapjacks Arkalis and gets him in a stretch. Rocker then gets Jaguar in a leg stretch. First Fall: King Rocker submits King Jaguar with a leg stretch.

Joker slaps Robin to begin the round and then he gets teamed on. Joker drop kicks him in the butt. A very Joker thing to do.

Angel and Felino start out and Angel uses his quickness to his advantage. Niebla comes in with Bucanero and if we remember they had a hair vs hair feud a few months ago. They grapple for a bit until Flyer comes in with Shocker. Flyer hits a hurricanrana but afterwards Shocker strikes him. The match breaks down and Shocker gets Angel in a small package for the fall. First Fall: Shocker pinned Angel de Oro with a small package.

There’s brawling on the ramp to start. Bucanero works on Roja in the ring. Roja, Oro, and Flyer continue to get worked on for most of this round.

Mistico grabs the mic while Caristico keeps pointing at people in the crowd. WWE fans know Sin Cara did this and well he still does.

Winners: Caristico, Mistico, and Soberano

Ultimo Guerrero vs Vangellys

Vangellys attacks Ultimo on the ramp. I wonder why in a singles match the title isn’t on the line. If it was North American wrestling I’d say it’s because Vangellys is going to win but since it’s Mexico I have no clue. So he works over Ultimo Guerrero with parts of his own attire. When Ultimo gets a counter he stupidly argues with the ref and then Vangellys piles up on him some more. After minutes Ultimo dodges an attack and hits a few clotheslines but Vangellys catches him in a fisherman’s suplex anyway for the fall. First Fall: Vangellys pins Ultimo with a fisherman’s suplex

Vangellys continues to work over Ultimo to start this round. Guerrero dodges and gets Vangellys down in the corner and hits a stalling bronco buster twice. I suppose I’d call it then. It’s like the stalling knee strike except with his groin. Vangellys kicked out and Ultimo argues with the ref like a fool. Ultimo threatens to leave. Finally back in the ring Ultimo hits a spine buster and gets Vangellys in the leg neck crank for the fall. Second Fall: Ultimo Guerrero submits Vangellys with a neck crank submission. 

There’s a whole bunch of posturing to start this round. Ultimo hits a clothesline on Vangellys and the ref counts incredibly slow so I’m guessing this ref is going full blown AAA heel. Ultimo gets a sunset flip and yet another slow 2 count. Guerrero brings him to the outside and brawls to the outside. Ultimo hits a gord buster off the top rope for another slow two count. Vangellys hits a deep arm drag off the top rope for a two count. Vangellys catches Ultimo with a spear and wins. I guess my theory was right. Third Fall: Vangellys pins Ultimo Guerrero with a spear.

I believe they’re setting up a championship match in the post match promo

Winner: Vangellys

First Fall: Nitro pins Oro Jr with a top rope splash.

Oro Jr gets worked over to start the round. Star Jr tries to make the save but gets teamed on as well. Astro gets teamed on and goes to leap up the ropes but botches a back flip and lands very awkwardly. He gets tossed to the outside. It appears doctors are coming over to check on him. Azteca then hits a double stomp off the top onto Star Jr’s… butt? Disturbio pins him for the win. Second Fall: Distrubio pins Star Jr after Azteca hit a double foot stomp to the butt.

Winners: Nitro, Distrubio, and Sangre Azteca

They start this match going back and forth with Universo getting the early advantage hitting a corner strike and a drop kick.

Winner: Fuego

Titan, Triton, and Esfinge vs Polvora, Misterioso, and Kawato San

Esfinge and Misterioso start the match battling for position. Titan and Kawato come in next and work really fast going back and forth. Kawato’s blue hair looking like cotton candy. Polvora is in next with Triton now. Triton lands a hurricanrana on him but gets hit with a flapjack and drop kick after he recovers. Chaos breaks down after that and there’s a lot of back and forth action. Titan hits a dive through the middle rope on Polvora and in the ring Kawato hits a suplex on Esfinge for the pin and Misterioso hits a neck breaker on Triton for the fall. First Fall: Misterioso pins Triton with a neck breaker.

Misterioso and Titan fight on the ramp way to start this round. Polvora throws Triton into the crowd. Misterioso flapjacks Titan and Kawato drop kicks him. Misterioso works on Esfinge’s mask and I believe in an attempt to pull it half way off he ended up pulling it off so the round ends. Second Fall: Esfinge wins via mask removal.

Titan gets worked over to start this round. Misterioso hits a backdrop on him. Kawato goes for the pin but Triton breaks it up. Titan drop kicks Polvora to the outside then back flips to the outside and hits a hurricanrana. Kawato hurricanrana’s Esfinge but he handsprings. Kawato gets him to the outside and hits a dive over the top rope. Triton the gets Misterioso to the outside and he too hits a dive over the top rope. Titan rolls up Polvora and pins him for the win. Third Fall: Titan pins Polvora with a roll up.

Winners: Titan, Triton, and Esfinge

Kraneo, Volcano, and Stuka Jr vs Mephisto, Luciferno, and Ephesto

Volcano starts with Ephesto first and Volcano does show some athleticism and hits an arm drag to the outside but he feigns a dive. He can’t always do that to trick the fans or his opponent cause he never dives. Mephisto gets in with Stuka and goes to work on him but Kraneo enters and he backs down. But the other two sons of hell come to team on him. Ephesto and Luciferno throw Volcano off the top rope onto Stuka and then they pin both. First Fall: Luciferno pins Stuka after he and Ephesto threw Volcano on him.

Volcano gets teamed on to start this round. They move their attack to Stuka afterwards. A whole of team ups going on in this round. Not much to say. Stuka finally dodges a double team attack and trips Luciferno and Ephesto. Volcano splashes both and then Kraneo splashes on both from the middle rope. Second Fall: Kraneo pins Luciferno and Ephesto with a middle rope splash.

There’s posturing to begin this round. Kraneo sits down on Ephesto after a failed sunset flip so Luciferno and Mephisto come in to help out. Kraneo ends up splashing both of them. They fight back and team up on Volcano. Volcano fights back himself and hits a double drop kick. He then catches Luciferno and hits a handspring splash on him.

Astral and Robin make a come back countering them into roll up that they turn into submission locks. Robin gets Grako in an arm lock and then Astral submits Coyote with an arm bar. Second Fall: Astral submits Coyote with an arm bar.

After the fall Robin kind of collapses holding his head. I don’t really see where he hurt his head, maybe he just landed badly on a spot and worked through the ending sequence. A stinger as we call it in sports. Let’s hope not a walking concussion. He was still down when round 3 started. Let’s see if they go to the finish quick. Grako works over Astral for a bit. Astral counters some attacks. Robin is back in with Coyote and did some acrobatic spots so I guess he’s alright. He takes out Coyote and Grako and then poses. Crowd pops extra loud for it probably cause they’re happy he’s okay. Coyote gets back in the ring and hits a tiger suplex on Astral and pins him. He slams Robin and Grako hits an elbow drop on him for the win. Third Fall: Grako elbow drops Robin for the win.

Caristico, Diamante Azul, and El Valiente vs Gilbert El Bourica, Ciber the Main Man, and The Chris

If I remember correctly Gilbert is apart of Klan Kaos. For the sake of annoyance I’m going to refer to Ciber the main man as Cibernetico. Just as I refer to Pentagon and Fenix by their known names. The Chris I’ll leave because it’s about the same as writing El Zorro. And if Scharly Rock Star comes back I’ll call him Charlie Manson. You get it right? Cibernetico works over Valiente on the outside. Gilbert works on Diamante in the ring and Chris beats on Caristico on the outside. The brawling style is what you’re gonna get from these guys at this point in their career. Cibernetico choke slams Caristico and pins him. First Fall: Cibernetico pins Caristico with a choke slam.

Gilbert hits a power slam on Azul but just for a two count. Gilbert yanks Azul’s mask off, Azul tries to fight back and Gilbert spears him. No matter it’s a DQ. Third Fall: Diamante Azul wins via mask removal DQ.

Azul challenges Gilbert to a mask vs hair match. I’m not sure if Gilbert accepted but that would be some hoss battle.

Winners: Caristico, Diamante Azul, and El Valiente

Volador Jr, Angel de Oro, and Niebla Roja vs Rush, El Terrible, and Bestia del Ring

Los Ingobernables attacks Niebla Roja during his entrance. Terrible beats on Roja on the outside and Bestia works on Angel in the crowd. Just a straight mugging. Comandante is there too to make the odds uneven. Volador’s top makes him look like a red bull can. They hit a triple drop kick on Volador. Los Ingobernables continues to work over everybody. They press slam Roja to the outside on Volador and Angel. The ref is pissed at nobody listening to him so he DQs Los Ingobernables for not listening.

In the ring Terrible pushes Roja into the ref and then kicks him in the groin. Angel gets him in a victory roll into a submission but then Bestia kicks him in the back of the head and the ref has had it with interference so he DQ’d Bestia. Second Fall: Angel de Oro wins by DQ when the ref got pisses at Bestia.

They beat on Angel and Niebla after the match. The usual rudos heat. Rush cuts a promo on there. What hurts is us smart people know Rush will be at ROH for a ppv while Bestia and Terrible take on Roja and Angel. So at least we know there won’t be interference from him. Rush calls them Barbies.

Winners: Volador Jr, Angel de Oro, and Niebla Roja

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Shane flips Action back up to KNEE him in the face! Ogogo and Lee get in for defense, Shane DECKS Action!! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Tiffany Stratton is here!

Worcester, Massachusetts cheers because it’s #TiffyTime! And not only that, the Center of the Universe is the NEW Miss Money in the Bank, so there is no denying she is just biding her time until she can cash-in and snatch up a championship. And Tiff gets a mic to say that this Saturday, it officially became Tiffy Time when she climbed to the Tiffy Top, took down the briefcase, and become the youngest Ms. MITB in HISTORY! The fans do cheer that! And uh, Trish Stratus may’ve been the hometown host, but Tiff was the real star of the show. Trish isn’t here to ruin Tiff’s moment, because it is Tiffy’s Time.

The fans cheer for “TIFFY TIME! TIFFY TIME!” Tiff warns Liv Morgan, Roxanne Perez and Bayley to all keep their heads on a swivel. Their reigns are on Tiffy Time. And very soon, we will all be saying “AND NEW~!” WAIT! The Role Model, the WWE Women’s Champion, Bayley herself, makes her way out to the ring. Bayley tells Tiffy that she will be the first to congratulate her on such a big victory. Bayley knows what it takes. And as someone who has such high praise lately, that must add some pressure, so Bayley is impressed Tiff proved herself right. Tiff asks Bayley why she’s even out here, and to get to the point. Out of everyone, Bayley should know it’s Tiffy Time.

Bayley smiles and says well, she doesn’t care what time it is, she just wanted to give some advice. Bayley did win her own MITB in 2019, but Tiff probably didn’t even know what WWE even was then, right? Tiff says yeah, 2019 was like a million years ago. It is 2024, and just three years into this, and Tiff is the youngest Ms. MITB ever! Meanwhile, Bayley was just home, on her couch, eating chips and all alone. Bayley will give Tiff that, so here’s one last piece of advice: If Tiff even plans to use the briefcase on Bayley, plan on making history again as the first woman to ever fail her cash-in. But wait! Here comes Nia Jax!

The Irresistible Force, the Queen of the Ring, Nia tells Bayley, “What’re you doing out here making empty threats?”  The fans boo and Nia says that’s rude to the Queen. But in case Bayley forgot, Bayley has her match against Nia at SummerSlam, where Nia will be taking that title off her. Oh, is that right? Nia steps into the ring and Bayley isn’t sure who Nia thinks she’s talking to. But this isn’t NXT Hugging Bayley, or even 2017 Bayley that Nia put on the shelf. Yeah, be proud of that, idiot! This Bayley is the GRAND SLAM CHAMPION Bayley! This is the Royal Rumble winning, WWE Women’s Champion Bayley! This is the same Bayley that will embarrass Nia at SummerSlam!

But hey, y’know what? Let’s play a little game here. Devil’s Advocate: Bayley slips on a banana peel and Nia somehow does beat Bayley. What’s Tiff to do then? Is she gonna cash in on her friend, Nia? We know there’s some PTSD from the last time- Tiff says hey, hold on! Nia tells Bayley that yeah, she’s not the hugger that Nia hurt before SummerSlam 2017. But what is she now? BBL Bayley? Nia looks at the tights and says she isn’t sure what Bayley is trying to prove playing Divide & Conquer. Nia has no problems with Tiff, Tiff is like her own personal little Barbie. Tiff smiles, and Nia says Bayley isn’t a toy. Bayley’s a victim.

And at SummerSlam, Nia will victimize her. Bayley winds up, Tiff stops her, so Bayley DECKS Tiff! Only for Nia to CLUB Bayley! Nia puts Bayley on ropes to CHOKE her, and Tiff talks trash. But here comes MIA YIM! Kendo stick SMACK for Nia! Tiff runs before she can get hit! Michin warns Nia AND Tiff, will the Queen & Princess of the Ring learn who’s The Head Baddie in Charge?

 

Backstage interview with Chelsea Green & Piper Niven.

They’re waiting outside Nick Aldis’ office when Byron Saxton walks over. Chelsea has a fancy neck brace on as she tells “Bryan” she has no time for his stupid questions. Did they not see the BRUTAL MITB match she went through? The whole world is now calling her, “The Mother of Mayhem,” “The Princess of Pain.” So she has no time for this! She is waiting on Sir Nicholas the Prickless so just go away! Byron says Nick- Piper asks if he did not hear her. Just GO! Git! Shoo! As he leaves, we can see Isla Dawn talking with… Blair Davenport? Could their NXT UK connection make Blair an ally against the trios coming after the tag titles?

 

Nia Jax w/ Tiffany Stratton VS Mia Yim!

SmackDown returns and the bell rings on this match. Nia runs up, Mia dodges to fire off hands! Mia dodges again to CHOP and KICK and KICK! Nia HEADBUTTS Mia down, Mia goes to a corner, and Nia runs in! Mia dodges then fires off forearms! The fans rally up for Mia, but Nia shoves her away. Mia runs in but Nia ELBOWS her! Nia scoops, but Mia slips into a SLEEPER! Nia RAMS Mia into buckles and is free! Bayley is ringside to coach Mia, and Mia leaps to GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Nia endures, powers up and out, but Mia comes back with a strike fest! SOABT and PELE! Mia runs up to TORNADO- NO! Nia tosses Mia away!

Nia runs to ELBOW DROP Mia! Tiff says too easy. Nia covers, ONE!! Mia upsets Nia but Nia puts her on ropes. Nia SITS on Mia to choke her! The fans boo, the ref counts, and Nia lets off. Mia goes to a corner but Nia stomps away! Nia goes corner to corner to HIP ATTACK! And she rubs it in Mia’s face, literally! The fans are torn, Bayley coaches Mia up, but Nia storms over. Mia runs up to fire off strikes! Mia runs but Nia CLOBBERS her! Nia soaks up the heat as she scuffs Mia around. Nia clamps on a cobra clutch and she leans on Mia. The fans rally, Mia fights up, and Mia fires body shots! Mia SOBATS, runs, redirects, but Nia isn’t so easily tripped!

Nia drags Mia up to TOSS her to a corner! Nia runs in to SPLASH! And then she TOSSES Mia the other way! Nia taunts Bayley, runs in and she SPLASHES Mia in the corner again! Nia says kiss this, runs in, but Mia DUMPS her out! Mia goes to the apron, but Nia blocks the Penalty Kick! Electric Chair and SLAM off the apron! Nia then CLOBBERS Mia, and soaks up the heat as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and the fans rally as Mia is on Nia with another GUILLOTINE! But Nia powers up to suplex Mia high and hard! The fans rally but Nia rises first.

Cover, TWO! Mia can’t believe it!

Bayley coaches Mia and Mia climbs the corner. But Nia springs up to ROCK Mia first! Mia wobbles, Nia ROCKET LAUNCHES her! Then SENTON FLOPS as Mia moves in time! Tiff gets on the apron, sneaking Mia’s own kendo stick in. The ref is distracted, but Bayley YANKS Tiff down! And she sends Tiff into barriers! Nia has the kendo stick but Mia SHOTGUNS Nia again! Mia reels Nia in, TORNADO DDT! The fans fire up as Mia hurries to cover, TWO!! Nia survives and Mia is losing her mind! Bayley is equally frustrated but Mia KICKS and KICKS and KICKS Nia! Mia hauls Nia up, runs, but into a fireman’s carry! SAMOAN DROP!

Nia drags Mia to a drop zone, and she goes up! A-NIA-LATOR!! Cover, Nia wins!

The HBIC did what she could against the QOTR, but now Bayley goes after Nia! The fans fire up, but Tiff CLOBBERS Bayley with her briefcase! Fans chant “CASH IT IN!” as Nia HEADBUTTS Bayley! Bayley flounders to a corner, Nia runs in to SPLASH! Then feed to Tiff’s SPINEBUSTER! Nia runs to drop a leg, brother! The fans are torn between booing and wanting Tiff to cash in. Tiff pats Nia on the back for the good work, but then temptation creeps in. The fans are getting louder, too, and Tiff calls to the ref! Is she doing it?! Nia gets right in Tiff’s face, and Tiff denies she was ever gonna try it. Tiff high-fives Nia, and they head out.

It seems The Princess will just have to wait her turn, but will she have to wait long with SummerSlam around the corner?

 

Solo Sikoa speaks.

“The Bloodline had all the titles. Both Heavyweight and both Tag Team Titles. It would all be the same if Roman Reigns never went soft. It takes a real Tribal Chief to stay on top of his game. And that’s why I’m here: to build a whole new family. A more powerful family. A hungrier family. A more aggressive family. And this family will rule for decades, as long as I’m the Tribal Chief. And by the end of tonight, everyone will acknowledge me.” Jacob Fatu adorns Solo with the ula fala, and they raise up their ones. What will this furious four look to do to the SmackDown roster next?

 

Byron Saxton interviews Andrade.

It was earlier today before the show that Byron Saxton sat down with El Idolo, and spoke on MITB. Many say that was a star making performance by Andrade. Yet here we are a week later, and now those same people are wondering what is next for him. Andrade wonders himself, “What is next?” He has said that his vision in WWE is the same. This is his destiny! That is why Andrade is- interrupted by Carmelo Hayes… And Melo asks Byron why he’s talking to Andrade when he could be talking to the real MVP of MITB, the show stealer, H1M! Andrade tells Melo to tranquilo. Andrade never said anything about being MVP. The people did.

Well, Melo says people are saying Andrade screwed Melo over. Melo should be treated better here. he is a first round draft pick, he pinned Randy Orton, he went toe to toe with Cody Rhodes on his very first night on SmackDown! Andrade tells Melo that if he wants an answer to what is next for Andrade, it’s him. Melo leaves without a word, and Andrade smirks. Will El Idolo look to humble H1M and move on to even bigger and better things?

 

Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo w/ Legado Del Fantasma VS Baron Corbin & Apollo Crews!

When Andrade turned them down, Angel took his frustrations out on Apollo. Apollo went for payback, got beat down for it, and of all the unlikely allies, it is the former Lone Wolf that has joined Apollo’s crew. Will they show Legado what it is to be respected? Or will Angel & “Berto” show they don’t show respect nor do they show mercy to those in their way?

SmackDown returns as Crews makes his entrance. Legado then makes their entrance, talking a lot of smack. But then Corbin helps Crews FLY and take them all out! Crews throws Angel aside, throws Berto in for Corbin, and the bell rings! Corbin SPLASHES Berto in the corner! Then he short arm LARIATS! Corbin fires up and so do the fans. Corbin then FLYING LARIATS off the ropes! Cover, TWO! Corbin tags Crews, and Crews whips. Berto reverses and RAMS Crews to then kick, CLUB and GAMANGIRI! Berto stomps away on Crews, lets off as the ref counts, and the fans boo. Berto brings Crews around to whip, but Crew reverses

Crews ELBOWS Berto down, drags him over, and tags Corbin. Crews whips to back drop! Corbin hauls Berto up, suplex and CUTTER! Cover, but Angel storms in! Corbin dodges Angel, Crews fires hands! Berto and Corbin fire hands, Crews LARIATS Angel up and out! Corbin sends Berto to Crews and he TOSES Berto out! Wait, Corbin wants to build speed!? Crews THROWS Corbin out and he takes down Berto & Angel! The fans are all fired up and SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Angel reels Corbin into a Gory Especial. Corbin endures being bent, but Berto tags in so he can slingshot and ROLLING CUTTER! Not the cleanest cut but Berto covers, TWO! Corbin stays in there but Berto KICKS him down! Berto rains down fists on Corbin, lets off to taunt Crews, and the fans boo more. Berto grins as he drags Corbin into a motorcycle stretch. Corbin endures and the fans rally up for him. Corbin fights his way around to fireman’s carry, but Berto slips free! Berto springboards, FLYING CHUCK! Cover, TWO! Corbin is still in this but Berto stays between him and Crews.

Santos says to finish this, and Berto mule kicks. Berto runs bu tinot a fireman’s carry, and DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! The two crawl, reach out, hot tags to Angel and Crews! Crews dodges to mule kick, run and BOOT! Angel staggers, takes a swing, but Crews dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! The fans fire up with Crews, and he reels Angel in. GERMAN SUPLEX, and Crews holds on! GERMAN SUPLEX again! Crews wants another, and he GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Hattrick complete, and Crews BLASTS Berto to be sure. Crews runs in at the corner, STINGER SPLASH!

Angel staggers away, Crews goes up top! Crews leaps to CROSSBODY! Cover, Berto breaks it! Corbin runs up but Berto kicks and forearms first! Berto runs in at the corner but Corbin dodges! Berto goes up and out of the ring! Santos is there to help Berto up but here comes Corbin! The Emperor dares Corbin to hit him. So Corbin does! And then he LARIATS Berto and himself into the timekeeper’s area! Crews ENZIGIRIS Angel, reels him in, gorilla press and SLAM! But Elektra Lopez gets on the apron! She distracts the ref so that Santos can KNEE Crews down! Angel drags Crews up, for the WING CLIPPER! Cover, Legado wins!

Winners: Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, by pinfall

Santos says the numbers don’t lie! Crews & Corbin can’t compete when it’s 4v2, will anyone stop Legado from taking over?

 

Chelsea & Piper are still waiting.

Piper holds Chelsea’s cup for her so she can sip, and is also reading a book titles… “How to Start a Cult?” Pretty Deadly’s Kit Wilson walks up to Aldis’ door but Chelsea slaps his hand! Elton Prince says excuse them, ladies, but they need to talk with Aldis about approving the budget for Pretty Deadly: The Musical! What? Oh, that clicks. But listen up, sparkle sisters, get to the back of the line. They’ve been waiting. The boys do as told, and then LA Knight walks out of Aldis’ office! Chelsea asks “Mr. Knight” if Mr. Aldis is busy.

Uh, yeah, he is. He said he’ll call Chelsea after he’s through with a couple other things. Just wait a little longer. Chelsea gets all huffy and Knight heads to gorilla, a contract in hand. Could this be what it seems?

 

Randy Orton sits with Cody Rhodes backstage.

The Viper says he heard what Solo said. There’s a pretty good chance Cody will find himself in the middle of that ring with a bunch of Samoans. But Orton also knows that Cody doesn’t want him out there. But Orton needs Cody to know that like it or not, if things go sideways, Orton is going out there. Orton will always and forever have Cody’s back. Kevin Owens feels the same, but he isn’t here tonight. That’s on Orton. Kevin loves to fight, but Orton told Kevin to stay home. Kevin’s family needs him more than they do. So if Cody finds Solo in that ring tonight, he better give that big ugly Samoan a piece of his mind.

But in the end, everything eventually comes to an end. So when all this with The Bloodline is finally over, Cody will have a lot of men in this locker room coming after the title. And Orton will have his back then, too. Cody thanks Orton for that, and Orton heads out. Will the legacy of the Undisputed WWE Championship be secure, even after fighting it out with The Bloodline?

 

LA Knight heads to the ring!

Worcester fires up for The Mega Star as he brings his contract folder with him. Knight steps in, gets a mic, and while the fans chant his name, he says, “LEMME TALK TO YA!” Knight says MITB came and went, and let’s be honest, he won’t stand here and complain, cry or make excuses. It didn’t go his way, he got dumped out onto a ladder, and someone else grabbed that MITB contract. So then Knight thought to himself, “Money in the Bank contract or no,” it doesn’t make a difference! Knight is the walking embodiment of money in the bank! So what that got him doing, rewind a little bit.

Let’s look at the path to MITB for Knight. Here’s some footage to take a look at. Specifically, he means his qualifying match from two weeks ago, where he pinned Logan Paul to win out! Okay, cut back to Knight. You see that, you see what happened, everyone person here right now saw was Knight move on to MITB, right? “YEAH!” But let’s look a little deeper, what we really saw. Yes, Knight went to MITB. But mor importantly, he pinned the United States Champion! And with that in mind, Knight picks up his folder, he has something hot and fresh from Aldis’ office. And well, let’s just say what this has inside was just for Knight. “YEAH!”

What this has in here has Aldis’ signature already on it. “YEAH!” And what this is here, is a contract for a United States Championship match at SummerSLam! The fans fire up for that! Now the only thing missing, he looked, there’s a signature from Aldis. “YEAH!” There’s a signature from Knight himself, “YEAH!” The only thing missing is the signature of “that edgelord,” Logan Paul. So what Knight wants is Logan to come out here and sign his part right now. But don’t get too excited, because that won’t happen. Why? Surprise surprise, roll your eyes, guess who ain’t here? Logan Paul.

But Knight tells Logan Paul that he will get this contract signed. It will be Logan, it will be Knight, and at SummerSlam, Knight will own Logan, own that belt, and there’s nothing Logan can do to stop it. Not cuz Logan’s not good enough, but because Knight won’t let him! And that’s not an insult, that’s just a of life! With everybody saying, “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!!” The Mega Star is still aiming for the Maverick, when and where will Logan accept the challenge?

 

Blair Davenport speaks.

“Everybody wants to talk about ‘living your truth.’ Truth is, you’re weak. And the reason bad things keep happening to you is because you allow it. You’re not successful because you’re not good enough. So while you cry about not being good enough, Blair Davenport’s already taken your spot. Does that hurt your feelings? Well come and do something about it.” The Ichiban Gaijin is here, but will Naomi learn to beware Blair? Or will Blair just #FeelTheGlow?

Blair Davenport VS Naomi!

SmackDown returns and Naomi makes her entrance. The bell rings and the fans rally up as the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Blair headlocks. Naomi powers up and out but Blair runs her over. Blair soaks up the heat, runs, but Naomi drops, then slides under the lariat! Naomi mule kicks, leg sweeps, and then leg drops! Cover, TWO! Naomi keeps moving, and she slides into a chinlock. Blair endures the squeeze, fights up and throws body shots. Blair breaks free, whips corner to corner, but Naomi goes up and catches Blair, for a TWERK ATTACK! Then she BOOTS Blair away! Blair goes to the far side and fans fire up.

Naomi runs in to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Naomi puts Blair in the drop zone, goes up, and fans fire up. SUPER SPLIT LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Blair survives but Naomi wrenches her to whip. Blair reverses to BOOT! Naomi staggers to ropes, Blair storms up and swings. Naomi blocks to fire forearms. Naomi KICKS and KICKS, then whips Blair to a corner. Naomi runs up but Blair ELBOWS her away! Blair then goes up and up to DOUBLE STOMP Naomi’s arm! Naomi flounders out of the ring but Blair goes out after her! Blair grabs that bad arm, hammerlocks it, and POSTS Naomi shoulder first! Naomi falls while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again as Blair and Naomi fight for suplex control. They go back and forth, but then Blair WRINGS the bad arm out! Blair SUPERKICKS Naomi down, covers, TWO! The fans rally for Naomi but Blair clamps onto the bad arm. Naomi endures, the fans rally up more, and Naomi fights up to ROUNDHOUSE! Naomi arm-drags Blair away, then goes to a corner. Blair storms over, blocks boots, but Naomi rebounds for the ENZIGIRI! And then the RUNNING JAWBREAKER! And SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO! Blair survives but Naomi stays cool. Naomi puts Blair in the drop zone, goes up and up, but Blair CLUBS her first!

Blair has Naomi in a Tree of Woe, to then just BOOT her down! Cover, TWO! Naomi survives and Blair is losing her cool. Blair drags Naomi up as the fans rally, but Naomi turns suplex into cradle! TWO! Blair runs up to roll Naomi up, TWO! Naomi runs up to sunset flip, TWO and Blair has it! TWO and Naomi stands up. Blair waistlocks, O’Conner Rolls, TWO!! Naomi powers her way to an O’Conner, TWO! Blair is getting frustrated, but Naomi KNEES her! BUBBA BOMB! GEDO CLUTCH! Naomi wins!!

Winner: Naomi, by pinfall

It was a hard fought battle with just one good arm, but Naomi pulls out the victory! Will Naomi find a way to shine in the SmackDown Women’s Division once again?

 

Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill find Naomi backstage.

The #Big3 cheer their reunion and also Naomi’s win tonight. That is how you stand on business! Naomi did her thing, she looked good out there. Naomi says hey, someone had to teach Blair a lesson. Naomi says she can’t wait for Bianca & Jade to get their tag titles back. Jade says you already know that’s top priority. In fact, they were going to talk with Aldis tonight, but he isn’t even here. Chelsea and the others hear this and are shocked. They all storm off, and Naomi tells Bianca & Jade she’s glad they’re going to teach Alba & Isla a lesson. But they also need to be ready. Jade says they stay ready so they don’t have to get ready.

Bianca says Naomi did her thing. They’re gonna head out, good to see her again. Bye~! Love you~! The StrongEST Duo heads out, will Aldis and/or Pearce be able to arrange such a title rematch? But now Blair walks in. She says she doesn’t want trouble. She just wants to say that the better person won. Blair offers a handshake, and Naomi is wary. Naomi takes it, and Blair heads out. But Chelsea storms back over to say Aldis is not here! Chelsea & Piper pout and head out, and Naomi says she must’ve really gotten hit hard on Saturday. But then BLAIR ATTACKS NAOMI!! So much for sportsmanship!

Blair laughs at Naomi for falling for the trap. Will Blair make everyone beware her wrath?

 

WWE Tag Team Championships: #DIY VS A-Town Down Under!

Don’t worry, you aren’t seeing things. Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano only just got these titles last Friday in Toronto. However, Austin Theory & Grayson Waller are “cashing in” their rematch clause, and are hoping to take those titles right back! Will we see a bit of hot potato with the gold? Or will DIY just do it all over again?

SmackDown returns and DIY makes their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if history repeats itself!

Ciampa and Waller start, and Waller takes a swing! Ciampa dodges to ROCK and CHOP Waller, then whip him. Waller slides out, leads Ciampa on a chase, and Theory is there. Ciampa dodges Theory, gets in the ring, and then Gargano jumps in. ATDU swings but DIY dodges to then DOUBLE DROPKICK! Theory falls out, DIY TOSSES Waller out, and then Ciampa KNEES Waller back down. Ciampa holds the ropes open so Gargano can DIVE into a haymaker! Theory takes out Johnny Wrestling, and Waller jams up Ciampa! Waller POSTS the Sicilian Psycho, Theory RAMS Gargano into barriers!

Waller TORNADO DDTS Ciampa on the apron! ATDU look at the belts, claiming those are coming back home, but the fans boo while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Waller CLOBBERS Ciampa! Th efans chant “YOU SUCK!” but Aaller fires off on Ciampa in a corner. Waller then gets space, runs in, but Ciampa avoids the splash! Waller staggers, Theory tags in, and Theory stomps Ciampa down! Theory mockingly asks where Johnny went, then he goes up. Theory leaps, into a  JUMP KNEE! Theory and Ciampa are down, and Gargano rises! The fans fire up as Ciampa crawls over, hot tag to Gargano! Gargano rallies on ATDU! ENZIGIRI for Theory! Gargano dodges Waller to tilt-o-whirl but Theory runs up! So Gargano COMPLETE SHOT DDT COMBOS!

Gargano runs in at Theory but Theory puts him on the apron. Gargano GAMANGIRIS Theory, avoids Waller to MULE KICK, then he SLINGSHOT SPEARS! Cover, TWO! The fans fire up and Gargano brings Theory up.

Ciampa moves, JUMP KNEE hits Theory! Not again! And Waller turns around, into SHATTER MACHINE!! DIY sets up in the corners now and Worcester is thunderous! MEET IN THE MIDDLE!! Cover, DIY wins!

Winners: DIY, by pinfall (still WWE Tag Team Champions)

History does repeat itself as DIY wins two weeks in a row! Waller and Theory try to reason out why this happened, but then THE BLOODLINE ATTACKS! Jacob Fatu CLOBBERS Theory, then goes into the ring to YANK Gargano down into a SAMOAN DROP! Ciampa fires off forearm sand BOOTS, then he DDTS Fatu down! But Fatu just rises up! And he SUPERKICKS Ciampa! The Samoan Werewolf runs in to HIP ATTACK Gargano! Then he drags Ciampa up to whip and POP-UP SAMOAN DROP!! The fans boo but Solo Sikoa’s Enforcer just dominated the tag champs! And then he DOUBLE JUMP ARABIAN PRESS SAULTS Gargano!!

The fans lose their minds seeing that, but Fatu isn’t done! He hits the BEST MOONSAULT EVER on Ciampa!! Fatu is practically foaming at the mouth, and only now does Solo Sikoa make his way to the ring. Is this part of what Solo meant earlier tonight? What more does “The REAL Tribal Chief” have to say tonight? We’ll find out, after the break.

 

SmackDown returns and The Bloodline has the ring.

Fatu has finally calmed down, and Solo Sikoa has the mic. “Boston, Mass…” No, this is Worcester. But Solo still says, “ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” The fans boo as The Bloodline lifts up the ones. Solo says, “Need I remind you what happened to those that didn’t acknowledge me?” The fans chant “WE WANT ROMAN!” But Solo says Jimmy Uso, his own brother, his own flesh and blood, did not acknowledge him. And what happened? He’s gone. The Wise Man, Paul Heyman, did not acknowledge Solo. Heyman’s gone, too. And Roman… Reigns… The fans chant for “ROMAN! ROMAN!” but Solo says don’t do that now! They don’t even deserve him! They have Solo now.

And if Roman Reigns decides to come back, he will acknowledge Solo as Tribal Chief. But tonight is about Cody Rhodes. It is Cody’s turn… to acknowledge him! So if Cody’s there- Oh he sure is! The Undisputed WWE Champion, the American Nightmare, makes his way out on stage! The fans sing his song, “WHOA~ OH~!” and pyro, and Cody stares Solo down. Cody takes off his tie and looses his collar before he steps to the ring. Cody knows it’s 4v1, but he isn’t backing down. Solo has his men stand back, and Cody grabs himself a mic.

The fans cheer Cody on, and he says, “I’ve heard everything that you’re saying. I’m sure you can figure this out. We want the same thing. Now of course, gotta speak to Nick Aldis, but you might as well consider it official. SummerSlam, the Undisputed WWE Championship. BUT…! If it was really up to me, if I could make any decision, I wouldn’t be waiting ’til SummerSlam. I’d wanna do it here and now.” The fans cheer that! Cody drops his mic, but Solo has his men flank the champion. The fans chant for “RANDY! RANDY!” but Cody throws hands first! Cody ROCKS Solo, ROCKS Tama, ROCKS Loa, ROCKS Faut!

Cody catches Solo to a dragon sleeper, but Fatu SUPERKICKS! Tama & Loa mug Cody, then Fatu LARIATS him down! But here comes Randy! Tama goes out, Orton kicks him first! Same for Loa! Orton gets in, and he DUMPS Fatu out! Solo runs up but into a kick! Orton puts Solo in the ropes, drags him out, and hits the DRAPING DDT! Orton helps Cody up but Fatu is back! Fatu runs in, to CLOBBER Orton!! Tama & Loa return to mug Orton, and the fans boo as it is 3v1 on The Viper! Fatu kicks Cody out, Orton fights back against Tama & Loa! But Fatu DIVES onto Orton! Orton hits barriers and Fatu fires up!

Solo has Cody to himself but Cody fights back! Fatu is right on Cody and he fires HEADBUTT after HEADBUTT! Solo and Fatu trap Cody with the ropes! They mug Cody, and make him watch as Tama & Loa RAM Orton with steel steps! And RAM him again! Deja vu to when The Usos sidelined Orton for 18 months! Cody says no, take him! They want him, spare Orton! Fatu SUPERKICKS Orton! Solo says this is what happens to those who stand against them! Fatu SUPERKICKS Orton again! And another SUPERKICK! Tama & Loa clear the desk! Solo says this blood is on Cody’s hands! Fatu & The Guerrillas get Orton up, for the TRIPLE POWERBOMB through the desk!!

Worcester is devastated! And then Solo SAMOAN SPIKES Cody! The fans boo, the ula fala is put on Solo, and The Bloodline stands over their victims while raising the ones. Have they made the Apex Predator extinct? Are they going to end the legacy with their own hands?


My Thoughts:

An incredible SmackDown to bridge us from MITB to SummerSlam. Very good promo segment to start, and very clever of Bayley to point out that if Nia wins, Tiff definitely can’t cash in on her. And while Nia VS Mia was very good, Nia naturally wins to build her momentum. Tiff being tempted was also a good detail, and she might still be tempted along the way to SummerSlam, but I think my scenario of Tiff waiting until Bayley’s somehow survived Nia is the more likely choice. For that matter, there’s even a chance Nia screws Tiff out of her cash-in because Nia is just that selfish. That’d be some good Heel Heat on Nia since there are clearly big time Tiffy fans out there.

Great ongoing bit from Chelsea & Piper tonight, them waiting for Aldis. I wonder if that’s a nod to Chelsea having to wait forever on Vince to hear her out. Naomi VS Blair was a good match but it took a minute to get going. Naomi got a good win, and Blair pulls off a fairly good swerve, because yeah duh she’s a sore loser. I also liked that Easter egg bit of her and Isla Dawn talking. I really do think we’ll be getting Alba, Isla & Blair as a trio now that we’re seeing quite a few of those form up. DMG CTRL, the trio of Zoey, Shayna & Sonya, the #Big3 of Jade, Bianca & Naomi, WWE might be working on factions as a way to maximize the number of women getting screentime together.

Very good tag match of Garza & Carrillo VS Crews & Corbin, and I figured Santos & Lopez would be why Legado won. Now, Andrade is going to be feuding with Melo for a minute, and that’s going to be a great match, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Andrade circles back to Legado at some point. Naturally, LA Knight and Logan Paul are having their match at SummerSlam, good promo from Knight tonight and we’ll certainly be seeing Logan Paul next week to respond. I would think Logan would have no problem taking this match since he’ll want payback for the MITB qualifier, and is probably cocky enough to think this will be easy.

Great tag title rematch from DIY and A-Town Down Under, though I’m surprised it was so soon. And a little surprised that DIY won again. I almost thought they were gonna hot potato the belts and then the tiebreaker is at SummerSlam. I suppose they can still have DIY VS ATDU round 3 at SummerSlam, but at the same time, HHH loves cards with less matches for more quality. Maybe round 3 is for the SmackDown before SummerSlam like we just got to lead into MITB. And then Fatu wrecking those top teams was wild. As if this new Bloodline wasn’t already brutal, this right here could get Tama & Loa right into the tag title scene.

And of course we’re getting Cody VS Solo for the top title. Orton getting taken out like Heyman was rather wild, too, but maybe he makes a “miraculous” return where he and Kevin help Cody fight off Solo. And maybe, just maybe, Roman Reigns does return to make sure Solo does not win the title, and then getting us started on Solo’s Bloodline VS Roman’s Bloodline to go into the Fall stretch.

My Score: 8.8/10
