PLAY BY PLAY

Stephanie opens Raw as she heads to the ring!

Montreal has a mixed reaction to her appearance, but she takes it in stride. Stephanie picks up the mic and welcomes everyone to the show! She wants everyone to give a proper standing ovation to the Best in the World, Shane McMahon! Fans boo even stronger now as Shane O’Mac makes his way out. Shane gives Stephanie props on her introduction, but still asks Mike Rome give him a better. “The BEST, in the Wooooooooooorld~! SHAAAANE! McMAAAHON!” Shane approves, but now, in French. Fans chant “CM PUNK!” at Shane but that goes largely ignored. Shane gives his own French introduction, but the fans boo, so he gives it again. Fans chant “You Suck!” but Stephanie says Angle had his last match. Shane also points out he used proper French, not the “dirty” Montreal dialect.

But all that aside, Stephanie gets us to business: every superstar is eligible for the Shake-Up! There will be amazing match-ups, new contenders, or even tag teams broken up. The Superstar Shake-Up is one of their favorite nights of the year. Everyone starts their journey to Wrestlemania anew, so- Hold on, Steph, let’s take a look back the previous year. Shane has his highlights ready. Grabbing “that giant Muppet”, Papa Miz, then putting Miz in a triangle hold to choke him out in front of Papa Miz. But back to what Stephanie was going to say, the very first Shake-Up is… THE MIZ!! Shane panics, but where is he coming from? BEHIND! The Miz gets revenge with a rain of fists! And he chases Shane out of the ring! Shane hits back and tackles Miz into a post!

Shane kicks Miz to a barrier and throws hands! He clotheslines Miz over the barriers, but Miz comes back with a CHAIR SHOT! Miz SMACKS Shane more! Shane runs away but Miz, blood streaming down his face, stands tall. Will the grudge match sequel truly be a blockbuster?

Raw, get ready to enter the Age of Alexander!

The former Cruiserweight Champion and Soul of 205 Live is starting a new chapter next week thanks to the Shake-Up!

 

Finn Balor VS ???

The Extraordinary Man is ready for any challenge, but will he be ready for a superstar handpicked by The McMahon Family who is making his Raw debut tonight?

Raw returns, and Finn’s opponent is El Idolo! Andrade Almas, along with Zelina Vega, is in Montreal! And Vega introduces them both to the Monday Night Raw crowd. Vega knows who Finn Balor is. But for the past year on SmackDown, Andrade has showcased his own talents, and has done rather extraordinary things himself. For one, Andrade is multilingual. Here in Montreal, English is a second language. Fear not, for she and Andrade will address the WWE Universe in their native tongue. Andrade uses French to say “Merci!” But then he changes to Spanish to insult Finn. Fans troll him back with “What?! What?!” even as Andrade tops off his message. The bell rings and this first-time match-up begins!

Finn and Almas tie up and Finn gets a waistlock. Almas elbows out hard then stomps Finn down. Almas whips and knees Finn in a corner. Finn sits down and Vega says “SI! SI!” Almas goes corner to corner for CIEN KNEES! Cover, TWO! Vega is annoyed already but Almas is confident as he stomps Finn. Almas drags Finn up and hammerlocks but Finn fights out.

Raw returns and Almas stomps Finn to a corner. Almas backs off at 4 then stomps Finn more. He backs off again but runs, only to miss! Finn gets up while Almas gasps for air. Finn grits his teeth and throws strikes on Almas in the corner! He backs off at 4 to come back with a dropkick! Finn gets up, one knee bothering him. Almas gets to ropes but Finn runs over to CHOP him in the corner. Finn whips corner to corner but Almas reverses. The Intercontinental Champion goes up and over but that bad knee bothers him, Almas gets him with a kick! Almas hops up but Finn kicks, only to get caught and kicked again! Almas drags Finn in for the inverted tornado. But Finn lands on his feet to counter with an elbow drop DDT! Cover, TWO!

Both men are slow to standing but Finn is up first. Vega coaches Almas up but Finn Slingblades him down! Finn grits his teeth to aim at Almas.

Winner: Andrade Almas, by pinfall

La Muneca pays dividends again as she helps El Idolo conquer the Extraordinary Man! But bigger than that, Almas just beat the Intercontinental Champion! Will Almas soon go from El Idolo to El Campeon?

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias.

The Drifter has come to Montreal, and he says his musical is so powerful that it summoned the Doctor of Thuganomics and The Deadman. Why are these legends interrupting his legend? What do they see in Elias that prompts them to ruin his performance? Elias vows he’ll be ready next time. It all boils down to a truth they don’t want to admit: WWE stands for Walk With Elias! Montreal seems to know that. The Bell Center is packed tonight, the energy is off the charts, and just think: the fans would feel this regularly if the Canadiens were good enough to make the NHL Playoffs. Montreal boos that, but Elias moves on. He has a special song for tonight, but he’s also getting flashbacks of Seattle. But Elias promises that if any superstar interrupts him, they will NEVER be able to show their face again!

Rey Mysterio appears! Well, he doesn’t need to show his face, he has his legendary lucha mask on! Elias rushes Rey but Rey dodges Elias. They go again and Rey fires off on Elias! Elias knees low and throws Rey to the apron. Rey lands on his feet to shoulder and kick Elias back. Rey springboards to a headscissors that throws Elias out. Elias gets up but gets kicked back out! Rey scares Elias off with a 619! The King of Lucha Libre comes to Raw, will he dial up a huge 2019?

Oh no! It’s LARS SULLIVAN! The Leviathan has been hunting legends, and he’s found one! Rey is ready and he dropkicks Lars first. Lars still gets in and Rey throws hands. Lars shoves Rey but misses in the corner. Rey kicks more and boots Lars from a corner. Rey springboards but into Lars’ monstrous grip! But Rey keeps fighting, gets free, and tilt-o-whirls, but into a scoop! He escapes and chop blocks, but Lars catches him for a FREAK ACCIDENT! The Leviathan warns Rey not to do that again, and then scoops Rey up for a gut wrench running powerbomb!! Lars leaves the lucha libre legend for dead, laughing at his own showing of power. Who else will become the prey of this new predator?

 

Bobby Roode & Chad Gable VS ???

The GLORIOUS Duo are already in the ring when Raw returns, and speak on the Superstar Shake-Up. There’ve been a lot of changes already, but one thing that will not change: when these two are on their game, they can defeat any team in the WWE! Gable tells the fans to “SHOOSH!” They’re on their game tonight, and it doesn’t matter who doubts that, this is an open invitation to prove them wrong. “Who wants some, boys?” The team that answers: THE USOS! Jimmy & Jey change from SmackDown blue to Raw red and bring the Uso Penitentiary with them! Will they put Roode & Gable on #Lockdown?

The bell rings and Gable starts against Jimmy. Fans are fired up for the Usos as Gable circles with Jimmy. Jimmy grins as he and Gable tie up. Gable gets a waistlock then a takedown. He waistlocks again but Jimmy gets up. Gable throws Jimmy again, then turns him for a chicken wing. Jimmy resists and pushes Gable to a corner. Jimmy whips but Gable reverses. Gable follows Jimmy as he slides and blocks the kick, only to get the enziguri! Jimmy tags Jey and holds Gable while Jey mugs him. Jey whips but Gable reverses, so Jey uses that to hit Roode. Jey runs Gable over, too, then builds up speed. Roode trips Jey up and Gable kicks Jey out! Roode then runs Jey over with a clothesline!

Gable tags Roode and Roode fetches Jey. Roode rams Jey into barriers and Gable taunts him. Jimmy comes over but has to stay back as Roode puts Jey back in. Roode covers, TWO! Roode stomps Jey then rains down rights. Gable tags in and Gable rolls Jey into a chinlock. Fans rally for the Usos and Jey fights out. Gable clubs him back then whips him to the corner. Tag to Roode and they mug Jey more. Roode snapmares and rams his knee into Jey’s back. Roode wraps on a chinlock but Jey endures. Jey fights back but Roode knees low. Roode whips but Jey kicks, only for Roode to block. Roode spins Jey but gets the dragon whip kick! Both men are down, hot tags to Gable and Jimmy!

Jimmy rallies on Gable with clotheslines, mule kick to uppercut! Gable swings but misses, ends up in the Samoan Drop! Fans fire up as Jimmy aims at Gable corner to corner. Jimmy runs and hits the hip attack! Cover, TWO! Jimmy keeps his cool but runs into a back elbow. Gable hops up and grabs Jimmy’s arm for a hanging armbar! He lets up at 4 and Roode tags ni. They combine for a blockbuster German Suplex! Cover, TWO! Roode grows frustrated and hits Jey for good measure. Tag to Gable and they coordinate again, but Jimmy denies the Glorious Combination. Gable dodges the Superkick to roll up, TWO! Gable waistlocks and rolls Jimmy but Jey tags in. Jey saves Jimmy from Chaos Theory, and then SUPERKICKS Gable!

Jimmy SUPERKICKS Roode out then the Usos DOUBLE SUPERKICK Gable! Fans fire up as the Usos take a corner each! They climb up and hit the DOUBLE UCE! Cover, The Usos win!

Winners: The Usos, Jimmy pinning

Whether it’s SmackDown or Raw, the Uso Penitentiary stands tall! Jimmy & Jey had the SmackDown Tag Team Championships for a long time, is it only a matter of time before they have the Raw tag titles?

 

It’s time for A Moment of Bliss!

The Goddess struts onto her set and takes a seat. Her guest will be Montreal’s own Sami Zayn, after the break!

Raw returns and welcomes everyone to the Superstar Shake-Up edition of her show. With everything up in the air, she could end up on SmackDown. But if that’s the case, then she’ll give a proper farewell in French, and her guest is perfect for that. She gives an introduction to Sami Zayn! Montreal is excited to see Sami and sing along with his song as he joins Alexa on set. Sami is just as happy to dance along with his theme and the cheers of his fans. So much so, the theme hits again for an encore! He then takes a bow and rejoins Alexa on set. Alexa is impressed by this reception.

But wait, round three? Sami gets into it with the fans, but he knew this was just fish in a barrel. He gets the fans to react to a BIG French shout out! “Too easy.” Then he goes to a classic, “Ole~ ole ole ole~! Ole~, ole~!” Sami has to stop now, because he could do it all night but they have a show to do. Alexa notes Sami’s great return last week, and she speaks for everyone when she says it’s fantastic to have him back. Sami agrees as fans chant “OUI! OUI!” He’s been in town all week, and it’s great to see friends, family and his hometown neighborhood. Sami even got some bagels from St. Viateur. He absolutely loves Montreal. The city is great. The people are the problem. Montreal can’t believe Sami is saying this!

Yes, this city has world class cuisine and architecture, but the people? Ugh. The lowest point of his week is right now! Being here with all these people, it’s just so… Quebec. To be honest, Sami didn’t want to be here, or do Alexa’s show. It’s not personal. It’s just, this is all funny because nine months ago, Sami would’ve looked forward to this reaction. But now the cheers just make him sick. The fans cheer for Kevin Owens now. That’s even worse! Sami knows the truth: the fans just project their unaddressed issues onto the superstars, like Sami. Sami is no longer accepting it. It is disgusting and shameful! These aren’t fans! These are fantasy players!

Alexa knows Sami said fans over-critique him. Sami thinks the fans are the problem, but Alexa says it bluntly: Sami’s the problem. Sami says he was born here, but these are not his people. He doesn’t even live in Montreal, he’s in Orlando, Florida! Sami chose to leave Montreal before, and chooses to do it again now. Fans mockingly sing, “Hey, hey, hey! Good-bye~!” Sami doesn’t care, he says “See you in Hell” and storms out. All the tension between Sami and the fans aside, will Sami be staying on Raw? Or will he end up on SmackDown tomorrow night?

 

The IIconics VS Bayley & ???

Peyton Royce & Billie Kay came across a sulking Bayley earlier tonight and teased that with no Sasha Banks around, they’d hear her out. Bayley told them to keep Sasha’s name out of their mouths. She vowed to find a new partner and take them on in the ring, but who is it that joined the Huggable One? It’s NAOMI! Will she and Bayley make the IIconics #FeelTheGlow?

Bayley starts with Billie, and goes right at her with the bell! She fires off furious hands and brings Billie to her corner. She bumps and stomps Billie then tags Naomi. Naomi bumps Billie on other buckles then fires off forearms. Naomi backs off at 4 but gets a boot from Billie! Peyton tags in and she clubs and kicks Naomi around. Peyton bumps Naomi on buckles then stomps a mudhole into her. She drags Naomi up for forearms then wrenches to another forearm. She drives elbows in then puts on a thrashing chinlock. Naomi endures as fans rally. Naomi fights her way up and out but Peyton keeps her from Bayley. Peyton knees low then hits Bayley, but Naomi comes back with a jawbreaker! Billie tags in and she throws Naomi down by her hair.

The IIconics coordinate but Naoim disrupts their bulldog! Naoim ducks a kick to feed Peyton to Bayley2BellY! Split-leg moonsault! Naomi & Bayley win!

Winners: Naomi & Bayley, Naomi pinning

The Glow and Huggable silence the IIconics tonight, but will this new duo be the ones to challenge for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships?

 

EC3 VS ???

The Top One Percent hasn’t gotten a lot to do since coming to the main roster, so he demands competition! The McMahons have obliged, but who have they set up against The Best Here, the Best There and The Best Anywhere?

Raw returns, and EC3’s mystery opponent is: BRAUN! Well, Strowman isn’t leaving Raw apparently, but EC3 will have wish he was. Will #VictoryAfterVictory come after EC3 #GetsTheseHands?

The second Strowman hits the ring, he runs EC3 over! Then Strowman throws EC3 across the ring! And then back the other way! The bell didn’t even ring as Strowman barrels in for a corner splash! Strowman throws EC3 out and chases him up the ramp to run him over again! The Monster Among Men drags EC3 to throw him into LED boards! EC3 crawls but Strowman is on him for uppercuts! Strowman throws EC3 around and brings him to the commentary area. Strowman CHOKE SLAMS EC3 through the stage!! The match ends before it begins, but has Strowman’s newest run of terror only just begun?

No Contest

But Becky Lynch appears! The Man sees the Monster Among Men and simply raises her SmackDown Women’s Championship. She passes by the wreckage to go to the ring for her first match back on Raw since becoming the Champ-Champ!

 

Another superstar moves from SmackDown to Raw!

SAnitY is now without its chaotic captain, Eric Young! What will the madman do now that he’s come to new territory?

 

Becky Lynch VS Ruby Riott w/ The Riott Squad!

The #StraightFire welcomes the challenge of being on both brands given she’s both brands’ champions. Will the Squad Leader get a second chance at challenging for the Raw Women’s Championship now that it’s not Ronda Rousey?

Raw returns as the Squad makes their entrance. The bell rings and fans fire up for Becky! Ruby and Becky tie up and Ruby throws a slapping haymaker. Becky comes back with a Thesz Press! Becky throws fast hands then yanks Ruby from the ropes. Ruby gets up but Becky knees her and puts her in a corner. Becky stops away but backs off at 4. Becky goes to bump Ruby but Ruby blocks. Ruby goes to bump Becky but Becky blocks. Becky hip tosses Ruby then calf kicks her down. Ruby rolls out to regroup with the Squad, but Becky wrecks Ruby with a dropkick! Becky aims from the apron for a leaping forearm! Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan glare at Becky as she puts Ruby in. Becky follows but has to swipe at Liv. Ruby gets Becky with an STO! Cover, ONE!

Ruby keeps on Becky with furious forearms and a throw by her hair. Becky gets to ropes but Ruby is on her with a choke. Ruby lets up at 4 then puts Becky in a corner. Ruby stomps a mudhole of her own while the Squads taunt Becky Two Belts. Becky fights back but Ruby snapmares her down to a cravat. Fans rally and Becky endures as Ruby thrashes her around. Becky fights her way up and throws body shots. Ruby shoves Becky and brings her in, but Becy jawbreakers back. Becky kicks and lariats as she rallies up. Becky knocks Ruby down with double forearms then throws Ruby with a Becksploder! Ruby gets to a corner and puts Becky on the apron. Becky hits back and climbs up, but Ruby trips her up. Ruby yanks Becky off then climbs up, stage dive cannonball! Cover, TWO!

Ruby climbs up again but Becky gets clear of the stomps. Becky drags Ruby in for the Disarm-Her! But the Squad saves Ruby! Fans boo but Becky leaps onto them all! Becky follows Ruby into the ring but Ruby gets her again. Becky counters and brings her down, Disarm-Her is on! Ruby taps, Becky wins!

Winner: Becky Lynch, by submission

The Man fights the Squad as they rush the ring! She throws Sarah out with a Becksploder, then does the same to Liv! The Man holds up both her belts, but will she be able to hold her own going back and forth between the brands?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley.

Corbin’s Pack is back together, but he’s hoping Charly gets sent to SmackDown. Charly brings up the mystery man in the team they’ll be facing. Any speculation as to who that man will be? It doesn’t matter! McIntyre is only after Roman Reigns. Corbin knows Rollins and Roman are riding high, but Corbin retired Kurt Angle. Now his pack will run those boys off Raw. And after what Lashley did to Ambrose, the real question is: who is even dumb enough to team with those two? We do wonder who that man is, and we’ll have to wait for the main event.

 

Natalya heads to the ring!

The Queen of Harts sees Becky Two Belts is still in the ring, and must want to talk to her about one of those titles. We’ll see what she has to say after the break!

Raw returns and both Natty and Becky have mics. Natty congratulates Becky on her win here tonight, and her historic win at Wrestlemania 35. As a pioneer of the Women’s (R)Evolution, Natty dreamed of main-eventing Mania. Charlotte, Ronda and Becky turned dreams into reality, and Natty is proud of that. Becky is the first woman to pin Ronda! And the first woman to win both Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships in the same night. Becky talked about taking on all comers, so Natty is here to let her know that the Best There is, the Best There Was and the Best There Ever Will Be is coming for that Raw Women’s Championship.

Becky respects that, and notes how she spent years in the trenches with other underappreciated talents. And she knew that the second she won, those other underappreciated talents would hunt her down, just like Becky hunted down “that little weirdo, Ronnie.” But that’s the nature of the business. To take over the world, you gotta take those at the top. Becky and Natty go way back and have fought anyone anywhere, and look at them now! Fans tell both women, “You Deserve It!” Becky thanks them, but admits Natty was there at the ground floor. It would be a pleasure to- Lacey Evans interrupts! “This dope again…”

The Sassy Southern Belle struts her stuff out again, and actually speaks! “Well isn’t this just adorable.” Lacey admires Natty’s determination, but that title can’t possibly be around the waist of a “classless has-been” like her. Stop all this nonsense about a title match, because a lady knows how to curry favor and use her influence exactly what she wants. And now that Lacey is officially Raw, what she wants is her shot at the championship! And per the McMahons, Natty’s match will be against Lacey. That winner will be the #1 Contender to the Raw Women’s Championship. Natty, stand by for an education from the Woman’s Right. And Becky, you pay attention, too. A Lady can teach a Man a thing or two. Lacey struts her way to the ring, her in-ring debut is huge! Who wins to move on to a title match?!

Raw Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Natalya VS Lacey Evans!

The bell rings and Natty steps to Lacey. Natty waistlocks but Lacey works her way out with elbows. Lacey whips Natty to a corner but Natty dodges to give her a rebound sit-down! Natty walks all over Lacey to dropkick her down! Then discus clotheslines her back down! Natty tosses Lacey out hard and has control while we go to break.

Raw returns and Lacey drags Natty up by her hair. Lacey scowls as she slaps Natty around, but Natty trips her up! Natty wants the Sharpshooter but Lacey powers out. Lacey bails out but Natty wrecks her with a dropkick! Natty drags Lacey up for a SLAP of her own! Natty puts Lacey back in and powers her to a corner for furious hands! The ref backs hr off but Lacey uses that to throw Natty into buckles. Lacey stomps a classy mudhole into Natty then bangs her head against the buckles. Lacey lets up at 4 while Becky watches backstage. The Southern Belle yanks Natty out hard and puts on a cobra clutch.

Fans rally for Natty as she endures. Lacey digs her chin in as she leans on Natty. Natty powers up but Lacey wrings her out for a takedown. Lacey drops knees on the arm then drags Natty up by her hair. Lacey goes to suplex but Natty cradle counters! TWO, and Lacey drives elbows into Natty. Lacey puts the cobra clutch back on and thrashes about but Natty endures. Fans rally again as Lacey headstands to put all her weight on Natty’s neck. Natty stands and arm-drags Lacey out! Lacey runs into an elbow then a kick. Natty spins to discus lariat Lacey again! She wants the legs, and says “This B*tch!” is getting a Sharpshooter!

Montreal cheers for their favorite hold, and Natty keeps Lacey from the ropes! Lacey endures as Natty puts it on deep, and she gets a ropebreak! Natty lets go but fires hands as Lacey gets out of the ring. Natty chase Lacey and rams her into barriers. She SLAPS Lacey, then puts her back in the ring. Natty stalks Lacey but the Woman’s Right comes outta nowhere! Lacey turns Natty over and climbs up top for a double jump Moonsault! Cover, Lacey wins!

Winner: Lacey Evans, by pinfall; new #1 Contender to the Raw Women’s Championship

Lacey uses both her Woman’s Right and Lady’s Moonsault to become Becky’s first challenger! Will The Man really learn not to mess with a lady?

 

Backstage interview with Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins.

The Big Dog and the Universal Freakin’ Champion know what Corbin’s pack is planning. Will their third man be able to help? Everyone wants to know how that third man is, huh? Roman says we’ll just have to wait for the main event. Even though that door does open… But Rollins knows Corbin’s right: this is the honeymoon phase because both men are victorious after Wrestlemania. Life’s good for them, but for the Pack, life won’t be so good. The way this Shake-Up is shaping up, this could be everyone’s last night on Raw. And if so, they’ll tear the house down on the way out. That main event is next!

 

A creepy dollhouse…

A rocking chair rocking itself while trampling a stuffed animal… And a rocking chair with a laughing puppet…? Who or what is making its way to the WWE?

 

Six Man Tag: Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns & ??? VS Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin & Bobby Lashley w/ Lio Rush!

The Scottish Terminator and Rocky Mountain Machine again join [insert city here]’s Favorite Son to fight The Architect and The Big Dog. But with the Lunatic Fringe out of action and on his way out of the WWE altogether, who is joining the fight tonight?

Raw returns as Corbin makes his entrance with the lengthy list of his accomplishments, followed by Lashley & Lio making their entrance. Then Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins make their entrances, followed by the mystery partner… The Phenomenal, AJ STYLES! SmackDown was the House that AJ Styles Built, but now Styles’ home is Raw! Will this truly phenomenal addition to the team be what’s needed to silence Corbin and his pack?

Raw returns again and Lashley starts against Rollins. Lashley powers Rollins to a corner and rams his shoulders in. He backs off at 4 but throws hands now. Lashley runs corner to corner but Rollins kicks back. Rollins tags Roman and the Shield Bros whip Lashley for shoulders. They also split the wishbone! Roman uppercuts Lashley to a corner then headbutts him. Styles tags in and The Shield holds Lashley for Styles to throw hands. Lashley powers out and puts Styles in the Pack’s corner! Tag to Corbni but Styles gets away. Corbin and Styles circle and Styles throws chops and haymakers. Styles whips but Corbin blocks to uppercut. Corbin runs but Styles hurdles to speed things up, Styles dropkicks Corbin down! Styles fires up but Corbin tags out to McIntyre.

McIntyre tells Styles to tag out to Roman! Roman tags in and we have a Wrestlemania rematch. McIntyre talks trash but Roman throws hands! McIntyre kicks low then runs but into another uppercut!

Lashley stands, Styles kicks low and wants the Clash. But a CLAYMORE stops that! Roman runs in but McIntyre throws him overhead! McIntyre pursues Roman, but a SUPERKICK stops him! Roman SUPERMAN PUNCHES McIntyre into the crowd!

Rollins goes after Corbin but Corbin slides out, only to get a Drive-By Dropkick from Roman! And a DIVE from Rollins! The Shield takes care of Corbin and Styles forearms Lashley. Lio anchors Styles’ foot, but he fights him off. Lashley catches Styles, Dominator toss! Cover, CURB STOMP!! Roman aims and lets out the battle cry, to SPEAR Lashley! Styles takes aim, springboards at Lashley, PHENOMENAL FOREARM! Cover, Styles and team win!

Winners: Styles, Reigns & Rollins, AJ Styles pinning

A phenomenal return to Raw and Styles stands tall alongside The Big Dog and the Beastslayer! Will Styles only have bigger and better things now that he’s on the red roster? Will either Roman or Rollins end up on SmackDown tomorrow night?

 


 

My Thoughts:

There was a lot to worry about for this 2019 Superstar Shake-Up, but for the most part, this first night of it was actually alright. There was really only one massive and confounding mistake tonight: Vince McMahon not only called up Ray Rowe & Hanson while they were still NXT Tag Team Champions, he changed their team name AND their individual names!! The War Raiders are now the Viking Experience, Erik & Ebar?! Or Ibar or whatever Vince made it! Is Vince genuinely losing his mind?! Why would he change so much about their names?! The 8 Man Tag they were in was still great, and for the time being it’s great to know Aleister and Ricochet are sticking together. But what is going on with Vince that he thinks those name changes were good?! What possible reason could that geezer have when there was literally nothing wrong with their previous names?!

But again, the rest of tonight actually worked out. The Miz returns to Raw to beat up Shane, but also I would think to keep the USA Network Miz & Mrs plug since SmackDown will be leaving for Fox in the Fall. Almas and Vega come to Raw so that Vega can still be with husband Aleister, and Almas had a great match with Finn. Rey Mysterio comes over to silence Elias but then to get squashed by Lars Sullivan. Lars is looking like the new legend killer since Orton hasn’t done that in years, but Rey being on Raw also means he and Almas can continue their feud even with Almas possibly challenging for the Intercontinental Championship. The Usos come over to start fresh, which is great because Raw needed some extra seriousness. They did great against Roode & Gable, who might be on their way to SmackDown.

With the Usos, Naomi naturally comes over. Naomi and Bayley have a good match with the IIconics and win, and this does bring up the questions about Sasha Banks’ status with the WWE. I don’t see Sasha actually leaving, and this idea of Bayley teaming with someone else could just be a new angle in the story. Eric Young being moved over without a word is an example of how there will certainly be supplementary Shake-Ups that everyone will learn about through WWE’s social media and official site. SAnitY being without Eric is going to be interesting, but maybe that opens things up for Dain and Nikki Cross to interact more on screen since they’re another married couple. This might leave Wolfe out in the cold or just as a third wheel.

Superstars who might wish they’re moved to SmackDown should include The Riott Squad. They haven’t gotten to do much of anything for a long time on Raw. Ruby losing to Becky was natural, but still a shame given everything before this point. But it’s great to see the WWE is doing one thing right: they’re going to set Becky up to have opponents from both shows. Lacey VS Natty was specifically for the Raw Women’s Championship, meaning there can be a separate challenger for the SmackDown title. Lacey wins big in her first singles match on Raw, and I’m sure she’ll give Becky a good match, but we all know she won’t win the title here. If Becky’s dropping either of those belts, it’ll likely be the SmackDown belt and to someone like Asuka or Charlotte.

EC3 should want to either go to SmackDown, or back in time to before Vince called him up. I’m sure there was so much planned for him down in NXT under HHH, but Vince had to get his beef on with the Top One Percent. Of course, Vince hasn’t properly used EC3 since doing all that, so maybe he just wants to chuckle to himself about burying a star from TNA Impact. Either way, EC3 being destroyed by Strowman was great for Strowman, but EC3 should want his fresh start on SmackDown and Fox. But then a big surprise that basically wasn’t a surprise was AJ Styles coming to Raw! The Six Man Tag was great, obviously Styles scores the fall as the new guy, and this could mean a few things.

First, everyone imagines Roman going to SmackDown to fill Styles’ spot, that’s almost a given. Second, and a more personal desire, The Club reunites in full on Raw! I don’t see Finn going over to SmackDown because we didn’t see the United States Champion Samoa Joe coming over to Raw. Then all it would take is a supplemental Shake-Up to say The Good Brothers, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, are on Raw. After that it’s just having The Good Brothers get another push back to tag titles while Styles VS Rollins becomes the Universal Championship program. With a little bit of time, we could be seeing a GOLDEN Club around Summerslam time!

My Score: 8/10

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

The teams sort out and Angel Dorado starts against #TAIGASTYLE. They circle, tie up, and Lee wrenches to a wristlock. Lee HEADBUTTS the hand, but Dante flips and wrenches back.

Dante scuffs Ogogo, tags Darius, and Darius drops a leg. Cover, ONE! Darius keeps on Ogogo, bumps him off buckles, and the ref has Darius back up. Darius run sin but Ogogo puts him on the apron. Darius ROCKS Ogogo, fights off Lee, but Ogogo reels Darius in through the ropes!

The ref counts, Ogogo lets Darius go, and Lee KICKS Darius down! The fans boo but Ogogo drags Darius up. Ogogo wrenches, CLUBS Darius, and Shane likes what he sees as Ogogo wrenches again. Ogogo puts Darius in a corner while Collision goes picture in picture.

Ogogo HEADBUTTS Darius, HEADBUTTS again, then brings Darius out to scoop and SLAM! Cover, TWO! Ogogo is annoyed but he drags Darius up.

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both!

Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

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! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

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?

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.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

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
