PLAY BY PLAY

Raw is Roman’s Yard!

The Big Dog continues to be the Wild Card as he shows up in Texas! He has his eyes set on Super Showdown and a grudge match with Shane O’Mac, but tonight he and the #Bloodline will take on two #TopGuys and Shane’s “insurance policy.” Roman enters the ring and picks up a mic. But before he can speak, Shane appears! Fans boo as Shane gets his “proper introduction” as “The Best, in the WOOOOOOOOORLD~, SHAAANE! McMAAAHON!” That’s better. As for Roman, Shane is too excited to sleep. Super Showdown brings their showdown, and Shane shutting Roman up. Shane’s not just called Best in the World for fun. He’s like a fine wine: better with age.

And Shane promises to beat Roman from end to end of the ring, and hit a classic Coast2Coast. But then he’ll add on the triangle hold and make Roman tap out for the first time in his career. After Roman taps, Shane will hold on for much longer, tighten the triangle so tight Roman’s eyes bulge out, and then the last thing he hears is, “The winner, and Best in the World~!” “Oh shut up!” Roman would love for Shane to try and tap him out. If Shane puts that triangle, Roman will pick him up and bomb him through the mat! Shane doesn’t stand a chance with Roman. The only reason Shane is out here is because he has help, like Drew McIntyre. So after Super Showdown, Roman goes to Stomping Grounds to whoop on McIntyre!

But speaking of, here comes the Scottish Terminator! McIntyre says that he doesn’t like Texas’ attitude towards Shane. Show some damn respect for him! As for Roman, his mind is all over the place. Shane is 100% correct that he’ll beat Roman at Super Showdown. and McIntyre will decimate and end Roman at Stomping Grounds! But that’s the future. Worry about tonight. McIntyre has a great idea. They don’t need to wait, they’ll take Roman out now! But the Revival attack Roman from behind! Here come the Usos! The family fights of Dash & Dawson and take the ring! Shane has his men regroup as fans fire up for the Usos! Is the Six Man happening now?! It is!

Six Man Tag: Roman Reigns & The Usos VS Drew McIntyre & The Revival!

Why wait for later tonight when everyone is here right now?! Will the #Bloodline dominate the Terminator and #TopGuys to roll on towards Super Showdown? Or will Shane’s insurance policy do what Shane’s paying him to do?

The teams sort out and Dash Wilder starts against Jey Uso. Jey SUPERKICKS Dash right down! Then he hurries up top, but Scott Dawson saves Dash. Jey hops down and together with brother Jimmy, FLIES! The Usos wipe the Revival out and we go to break!

Raw returns and Dawson whips Jey corner to corner. Jey dodges and sends Dawson to buckles. Dash tags in and stops Jey, but Jey elbows free to hot tag Jimmy! Jimmy rallies on Dash and mule kicks to an uppercut! Dash swings but misses, but also escapes the Samoan Drop. But Jimmy comes back with the dragon whip! Jimmy fires up the fans and takes aim. But he has to hit McIntyre and Dawson first. Dash dropkicks Jimmy down! Dash stomps away on Jimmy then tags in McIntyre for even more stomps. McIntyre bumps Jimmy off buckles and CHOPS him! McIntyre facelocks and suplexes Jimmy hard! Cover, TWO!

McIntyre keeps Jimmy down and then puts on an armbar. He grinds his forearm into Jimmy’s face while The Revival mock the Longhorns fans. Jimmy endures and fans rally up. Jimmy fights his way up and headbutts, then whips, only for McIntyre to reverse. McIntyre smothers and belly2belly suplexes Jimmy down! Cover, but Roman breaks it! Roman and McIntyre glare but Dash and Dawson get away with mugging Jimmy! The ref tells Roman to go back to his corner while McIntyre tags in Dawson. McIntyre grinds his foot into Jimmy and Dawson stomps Jimmy out. Dawson cranks Jimmy’s neck but pulls on hair. The ref reprimands Dawson so he lets up, only to come back and stand Jimmy up. Jimmy uppercuts back! And CHOPS! Dawson staggers, but clotheslines Jimmy down! Cover, TWO!

Dawson taunts Jey before going back to Jimmy. He drags Jimmy up into a seated abdominal stretch. Jimmy endures and works his way up. Jimmy reaches and arm-drags Dawson off, only for Dawson to shove him. Dawson runs in but Jimmy starts fighting back! Jimmy back suplexes Dawson down! Fans rally up as Jimmy crawls. Dawson gets in and intercepts, BIG spinebuster! Cover, TWO! Jimmy survives but is isolated as we go to break.

Raw returns and Roman gives McIntyre the point blank lariats. Roman runs and BOOTS McIntyre down! The University of Texas fires up with Roman as he locks ‘n’ loads. Roman runs but McIntyre dodges for a Glasgow Kiss! But Jey tags in, Roman SUPERMAN PUNCHES McIntyre down! Jimmy SUPERKICKS Dawson but Dash clobbers Jimmy. SUPERMAN PUNCH for Dash! But Shane trips up Jey behind the ref’s back! Roman runs after Shane, and gets hands on him! But then gets a CLAYMORE from McIntyre! Jey flounders in the ring and McIntyre takes aim. The Revival give Jimmy SHATTER MACHINE! McIntyre runs, CLAYMORE for Jey! Cover, The Revival and McIntyre win!

Winners: Drew McIntyre & The Revival, McIntyre pinning

Shane helps his boys win, but now he wants to add insult to injury on Roman. He slaps Roman around, then has the Revival drag Roman up, for a SHATTER MACHINE! But Shane drags Roman up for McIntyre. CLAYMORE! Fans boo as Shane mockingly wonders if Roman’s okay. But this still isn’t enough for the Best in the World. The Revival drag Roman up, and feeds him to Shane’s SPEAR! Shane mocks the battle cry and then tells Roman that’s what he’s getting at Super Showdown. Will Shane return to the states still feeling like The Best in the World? Or will the Big Dog get back at him for everything he’s done?

 

Raw is Miz TV!

The Hollywood A-Lister is back and is going to be part of Super Showdown’s historically MASSIVE 50 Man Battle Royal! But for right now, he and the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show are here to discuss the looming Money in the Bank cash-in from Brock Lesnar. Therefore, his special guest is the Architect and the Beastslayer, WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins! Rollins makes his way out and Texas is ready to #BurnItDown! The remaining time on Raw could be the last few minutes in his reign, but Rollins shows no fear as he joins Miz in the ring.

Miz welcomes Rollins to Austin! Super Showdown has a WWE Universal Championship match of Rollins VS Baron Corbin, but… Rollins might not even be champion because Paul Heyman promised Lesnar would cash in tonight. What’s going on in Rollins’ mind? Rollins wants to back things up. First, this is assuming Lesnar even shows up to Raw, which assumes Heyman told the truth. Last time Heyman told the truth was… never! Rollins is prepared, but will believe it when he sees it. Miz commends that strong front, but he and Rollins both know what it is to be Mr. MITB. As of right now, it’s not just in the hands of a normal superstar, but one of the most dominant of all time, Brock Lesnar!

Rollins knows all that, but the truth is, if Lesnar showed up to cash in, Rollins would actually be relieved. Because Rollins can’t keep worrying on what might be. He knows what will be is Super Showdown’s Universal Championship match against Baron Corbin. No one here likes Corbin, nor on the planet Earth, but Corbin did win that Fatal 4 Way to be #1 Contender. If Rollins is the fighting champion he promised to be when he slayed the Beast, the he has to focus on the Lone Wolf’s head going into the mat. Fans support that with “Burn It Down!” But wait, someone is pulling into the arena. It’s Paul Heyman! And where Heyman goes, Lesnar follows! The Beast in the Bank IS on Raw, ready to cash in. Rollins is ready!

Heyman says “Here comes the pain!” But then Lesnar stops just before gorilla position and considers things. He’s headed for the locker rooms instead, to make Rollins wait a little longer. Fans still cheer for Rollins, but is Rollins’ night far from over?

 

Lucha House Party VS ???

Raw enters #LuchaTime as “Los Avengers” look to take down The Leviathan at Super Showdown! But before taking on Lars Sullivan, they will- Wait, is that Lars now?! Did he dismantle the team the Lucha House Party was supposed to face on his way here?! He rushes the ring and the fight is on! But Lars shoves Kalisto awya, then Lince Dorado. Gran Metalik also falls, but Kalisto kicks back! Kalisto springboards, but into a clothesline! Lars lariats Lince, and catches a flying Metalik!

Metalik is lifted high over head, but Kalisto dropkicks to save him! Metalik and Lince dropkick in turn, but it takes all three to send Lars out! Lars himself is surprised! The Mile High Monster roars, but he falls back to reconsider his strategy. Will Lucha House Party return from Super Showdown still standing? Or will they all suffer a Freak Accident?

 

The IIconics and Nikki Cross are backstage.

The Loony Lass looks a miniature pound puppy all sad to find someone to play with. But the WWE is not a dog park, and Cross has the wrong master in “that mutt”, Becky Lynch. Woof woof! But wait, Alexa Bliss returns! Don’t those two have a blooming onion to eat? No! But they have a match with Nikki tonight. And with Peyton’s “wifey” Billie ringside, it’ll be #IICONIC! Well that happened. Alexa’s gonna get a coffee. Does Nikki want one? Wait, really? Yeah. Alexa knows Becky and Nikki have been bonding, but Becky and Alexa don’t get along. Well, Alexa doesn’t get along with a lot of people. Maybe Nikki’s better off with the Raw Women’s Champion.

Nikki tells Alexa she’s not gonna judge the Goddess based on her past. Alexa has been so kind to Nikki. She’s been a friend. Well since they’re friends, don’t be shy to ask for a favor. Alexa will back her up against the IIconics. Time to throw some shrimps on the barbie! Will the Goddess be a good luck charm for Nikki against the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions?

 

The Man is here!

The Raw Women’s Champion holds her belt up high as she heads for the ring. But what is Becky going to say? Find out after the break!

Raw returns and Becky tells Austin, Texas, “The Man has been doing some thinking.” She wants to make some changes. Becky got home for the first time in 63 jam-packed days. She fought all over Europe, made appearances, switched brands, and won the main event of WrestleMania. Fans know “You Deserve It!” Becky appreciates the fans saying that, and says her dreams came true. She’s never been happier in her entire life. “But that’s when it hit me. Contentment is the worst thing that could happen to a fighter like me.” Content fighters get hurt, passed over or even beaten. Becky won’t let that be her. When Lacey Evans helped Charlotte Flair take that SmackDown Women’s Championship, Becky woke up.

When Becky gets pissed, and she is pissed, there is not a woman in this business that can stop her! So those who have wronged Becky, she will find them and will break her back trying and hands fighting. But speaking of Lacey, here she comes! The Sassy Southern Belle struts out with a mic and tells Becky, “You are just like a dog chasing a car.” And just like a dog, Becky wouldn’t know what to do with it. Lacey did everyone a favor. #BeckyTwoBelts shouldn’t represent the women of WWE. Becky mocks the Southern accent and then vows to rip Lacey’s arm out. Lacey says that while she’s blonde, don’t confuse her with Charlotte. Because Becky is not in Lacey’s head, and Lacey is not to be messed with.

While Becky beat Lacey, Lacey also points out Becky didn’t walk out a winner. Lacey promises to make her to be #BeckyNoBelts. Becky is not the right woman to represent Lacey’s division. Lacey vows to be the next Raw Women’s Champion, but here comes The Queen! Charlotte is the second Wild Card, dressed ready to go! Charlotte tells Becky to “please, please stop making excuses.” Becky still lost for #CharlotteNineTimes to become history. Yeah, but then what happened after? Charlotte lost the title, but- Lacey says Charlotte needs to stop embarrassing herself. Charlotte’s strutting like a peacock because she’s a daddy’s girl who needs attention.

Charlotte ignores Lacey and asks for someone to hold the ropes for her. But when no one does, Charlotte gets in on her own, and then brings up why she struts like a peacock. Because she’s halfway to beating her daddy’s championship reign record! And Lacey’s been here for four minutes, and all she’s done is make tea. Charlotte didn’t even need to take off her street clothes to leave Lacey laying. Lacey says Charlotte had nine reigns, but now she has zero belts. That’s yesterday’s news, and Lacey is the future face of the WWE. Charlotte can go back to SmackDown, or face a Woman’s Right. And Lacey shoves Charlotte right down! Charlotte keeps her composure, and Becky just sits back and watches as we get a Queen VS a Lady!

Charlotte Flair VS Lacey Evans!

Texas fires up as Charlotte and Lacey prepare to throw down. Charlotte puts her robe aside, and the bell rings. Charlotte goes right at Lacey with furious hands! They scrap and grapple but Lacey gets a ropebreak. Charlotte lets go long enough to come right back. Lacey turns things around and rams Charlotte with her shoulder. Charlotte facelocks and throws Lacey to then kick her against the ropes. Becky has a front row seat as Charlotte tosses Lacey out. Becky taunts the Model Soldier while fans “WOO~” for Charlotte.

Lacey gets up and tells fans to shut up. Lacey also declines Charlotte holding the ropes open for her. The ref has Charlotte step back and Lacey returns. The two circle and Charlotte get a takedown! Charlotte rains down forearms but Lacey turns things around. Lacey elbows but Charlotte tackles her. Charlotte has another facelock but Lacey has another ropebreak. Charlotte lets go at 4 and backs off. Lacey brushes herself off and Becky is rather amused. Charlotte and Lacey tie up again and Charlotte facelocks. Lacey switches and rains down forearms of her own. Lacey and Charlotte fight for control and Charlotte knees low. Charlotte bumps Lacey off buckles and Lacey bails out. The Queen has the Lady flustered as we go to break.

Raw returns and Charlotte has Lacey in another facelock. Charlotte waistlocks and throws Lacey around. Charlotte shifts to a wiastlock again but Lacey elbows out. Lacey gets a fireman’s carry takedown and cover, TWO! Lacey bumps Charlotte off buckles then again. Charlotte blocks and gives a bump back. Charlotte stomps away then grinds her boot into Lacey’s face. The ref counts and Charlotte stops at 4 to soak up the “WOO~!” Charlotte CHOPS away on Lacey, then CHOPS her all the way to another corner. Fans love the stylin’ and profilin’, but then Lacey throws Charlotte into buckles. Lacey stomps a mudhole into Charlotte, then walks it off for the swinging bronco buster! Cover, TWO!

Lacey grows annoyed but she keeps on Charlotte with a headlock. Fans cheer for Becky instead as Charlotte endures. Charlotte rolls Lacey up, TWO! Charlotte kicks Lacey right down! She paces and brings Lacey up, for an exploder! Charlotte kips up while Lacey crawls to the apron. Charlotte glares at Lacey, and runs in, only to get a knee. Lacey sweeps the legs then slingshots for the elbow, only for Charlotte to evade! Charlotte elbows Lacey from a corner, then gives her a backbreaker. Lacey staggers away, and Charlotte clotheslines her down! Charlotte grabs the leg, Figure Four but Lacey kicks Charlotte away! Lacey gets up, drags Charlotte out, neckbreaker! Somersault but gets boots! Charlotte and Lacey run at each other, double crossbodies!

Both women are down, and Becky pretends to be concerned. Fans rally but still want Becky more. Charlotte and Lacey each get up, but Becky yanks Charlotte out!!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by disqualification

Becky helps the Queen but is really helping herself to Lacey! She gives Lacey the Man-Handle Slam! Becky raises her Raw Women’s Championship, but will she hold onto it while making Lacey pay?

 

Rey Mysterio is here!

The King of Lucha Libre finally got his Grand Slam with the WWE United States Championship! But his shoulder is in a sling because of what went down at the Money in the Bank PPV with Samoa Joe. Joe’s shoulders were way off the mat, and yet Joe lost. Joe brutally attacked Mysterio and injured that shoulder, meaning tonight, the title must be given up.

Mysterio is in the ring and sets it straight. He’s been a part of the WWE for a very long time, and wrestling is in his blood. Mysterio gets to share wrestling with his son, Dominique, because Dominique is training to be a wrestler in his own right. Dominique will surely carve a path, but Mysterio needs to set the right example, as both man and champion. Due to this shoulder injury, Mysterio must- But before he can say, Samoa Joe appears! Joe feels he perhaps came out too early. He apologizes, but Joe was hearing the word “Champion” and just took it as his cue. Joe wants Mysterio to continue. This is an important moment, but Joe wants an addendum to the speech. Let’s not ruin things with a lie. The fact is, Mysterio isn’t giving up because of injury, but because he never really won!

Mysterio wants Joe to get it right, too. This isn’t to have a moment or to pull some kind of trick. This is not the moment Mysterio wanted it to be. But Mysterio’s won championships his entire career. Through pain and injuries. Mysterio is man enough to do that, and man enough to do this. He asks for just a moment. Due to this injury from MITB, Mysterio is here to relinquish the WWE United States Championship. And yes, to Samoa Joe. Mysterio puts the belt down on the mat, but promises he’ll be back for it. Joe attacks Mysterio!! Coquina Clutch!! Mysterio did what Joe wanted, but Joe still makes him suffer for it! Joe picks up the title, and is the NEW WWE United States Champion! But will Joe prove he’s worthy of having it back?

 

Cesaro speaks.

“I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, because there’s enough people around here who like to hear themselves talk.” The Swiss Cyborg will let his actions speak for themselves, and he’ll do that in a rematch with Ricochet! Ricochet is a great talent but is naive if he thinks he’ll win again.

Ricochet responds.

“Cesaro’s actions have always spoken louder than his words, and he’s one of the most dynamic superstars in all of WWE.” But tonight is a preview of a rivalry that could go for a decade. The One and Only has already proven he can win once, so he’ll do his best to do it all again. Who wins this tiebreaker between King of Flight and Swiss Cyborg?

 

Arm Wrestling: Braun Strowman VS Bobby Lashley!

Before going to Super Showdown for a battle worthy of a Godzilla movie, the Monster Among Men and the Rocky Mountain Machine look to lock-up in a very different kind of wrestling match. Who proves they’ve got the strongest hands before someone #GetsTheseHands in Saudi Arabia?

Raw returns as Strowman loosens up. Lashley makes his entrance, and the two stand at the arm-wrestling table. Fans cheer for Lashley to “Get These Hands!” The referee has them put hands on the grip bars and elbows in the pads. Strowman is ready but Lashley SLAPS him! Lashley grins at the angered Strowman, and it takes an extra referee to keep them from throwing down. Strowman shouts for the table to be reset, and the refs do just that. Strowman wants Lashley to man up and do the arm wrestling, but Lashely just flexes at him. Lashley grips and locks up with Strowman, and we begin!

The two are so even to start, but Lashley loses grip. He claims it was Strowman’s fault, so Strowman chalks up his hand. Lashley also gets chalk on his hands and the two stare down. Strowman’s ready, Lashley joins him, and Texas fires up for a second try! The two are even again, and going back and forth! Strowman comes close but Lashley comes back. Strowman gives it another gas, and wins!

Winner: Braun Strowman

The Monster Among Men proves his arms are the strongest on Raw! But then Lashley blasts him with chalk! And with kicks and haymakers! Lashley is a sore loser as he shoves the table down, then shoves and scoops Strowman! Lashley steals the Monster Slam!! Strowman, blinded by dust and reeling from the impact, is furious as Lashley leaves. But who will be the dominant monster when the dust settles at Super Showdown?

Carmella looks for Truth backstage.

After Truth survived the golf course in a back-and-forth with Jinder Mahal, the hunt continues on Raw. Drake Maverick realizes that the key is following the FABULOUS Princess. He, EC3 and a referee are in pursuit, but where will they find Truth? Will the find Truth?

 

Peyton Royce w/ Billie Kay VS Nikki Cross w/ Alexa Bliss!

The crazy and the divine head to the ring together as Alexa keeps her promise to be by Nikki’s side. Will the Goddess’ support help Nikki get one over on one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions?

Raw returns after the IIconics have made their entrance. The bell rings, and Peyton shows off the IIconics pose. Nikki turns Peyton around, but gets a heel kick! Peyton stomps Nikki to a corner then stomps her in the corner. The ref backs Peyton off but she kicks Nikki around more. Peyton throws hands and more stomps, then whips Nikki corner to corner. Nikki hits the buckles hard and Billie mocks her. Peyton grinds her boot into Nikki but lets up at 4. Nikki crawls but Peyton is on her, only to get a jawbreaker. Nikki rolls Peyton, TWO! Peyton runs Nikki over then covers, TWO! The IIconics grow annoyed but Alexa coaches Nikki up.

Peyton chokes Nikki on the ropes but lets up at 4. Nikki flounders to ropes but Peyton punches her around. Peyton throws Nikki tot he apron then throws knees. Peyton puts Nikki in the hanging motorcycle stretch. She lets go at 4, and mocks Nikki as she stalks her in the ring. Peyton toys with Nikki and whips her to a corner. Nikki dodges and hops on for a sleeper! Peyton flails and throws Nikki off to ram knees into her. Peyton puts Nikki in a seated abdominal stretch and Billie wants her to break those arms off. Nikki endures, bleeding from the mouth. Fans build to a rally, and Nikki fights her way up and out. But Peyton throws her by her hair! Peyton covers, TWO! The IIconics are growing further frustrated but Peyton stomps Nikki down.

Peyton toys with Nikki more. She drags Nikki back into the seated stretch and throws elbows. Nikki endures again, but fights her way up and out again. Peyton knees low then whips Nikki again. Nikki elbows out of the corner, then boots her back. Nikki throws hands and forearms, but Peyton shoves, only for Nikki to run her over! Alexa cheers Nikki as she fires up! Nikki runs corner to corner for a big splash and a bulldog! Cover, TWO! Nikki keeps going and climbs up top. Peyton stands and Nikki leaps for a crossbody, only to belly flop! Peyton is in a corner and Alexa is concerned. But then the staff brings coffee. The IIconics can’t believe Alexa is more into her coffee than this match. Peyton kicks the mug out of Alexa’s hands! And then kicks at Alexa! Billi shoves Alexa down ito her coffee puddle!

Alexa is embarrassed, but then Nikki gets Peyton with the Purge! Cover, Nikki wins!!

Winner: Nikki Cross, by pinfall

The IIconics’ ego got in the way! Nikki wins and is happy, but Alexa is still looking upset. Alexa gets angry, and goes right at the IIconics! She dropkicks Billie then drags her up, for the Bliss-DT! The Goddess shows her wild side now, and Nikki says they BOTH won! Will these two run wild with tag title gold in the near future?

 

Raw returns to Seth Rollins in the ring!

The Architect is back and says that when he won the WWE Universal Championship, he knew there’d be a target on his back. It’s what he signed up for because it’s what he wanted. Yet that’s not what is happening with Brock Lesnar. But speak of the Beast, here he comes! At least, we think so, because the music hit. Lesnar does not walk out on stage, and Rollins is sick of the games! Everyone here is sick of it! So Rollins speaks directly to Lesnar. “You used to be one of the most feared men on Planet Earth. Used to be.” Now Lesnar is just a shell of that. If there’s any shred of the true Beast in there, he better come out here and give Raw that cash-in, RIGHT NOW!!

Fans want to see it, but instead, Baron Corbin appears. Corbin tells Rollins, “You are all fired up tonight!” Too bad it’s for the wrong person. Rollins should forget about Lesnar and worry about Corbin. Rollins is in the ring, living a childhood dream, but Corbin is a dream crusher and vows to take that Universal Championship. To do that, Corbin has to win, and he doesn’t stand a chance. Corbin will pry this belt from Rollins’ cold, dead hands. Fine by Corbin! Corbin is the guy who retired Kurt Angle. And he’ll retire Rollins, too! Rollins hits Corbin with the mic! And then with fists! Corbin knees back and throws hands of his own! But Rollins throws hands again, then dodges to PELE him out of the ring!

Rollins DIVES on Corbin right away! Rollins is all fired up, but here comes the Beast! Raw might get that cash-in, after all! But then Corbin hits END OF DAYS! The distraction gives the Lone Wolf the opening he needs to leave Rollins down and out. But then, the music hits again. NOW the Beast wants his cash-in. He even has a steel chair just in case! Rollins is reeling as the #BrockParty looms closer. Lesnar low blows Rollins!! Payback for Wrestlemania, along with a chair shot! And another! And another! Lesnar bullies Rollins with a German Suplex! Lesnar tears off his shirt and Heyman shouts if this is the cash-in. Not yet! Another chair shot! And then he throws Rollins out of the ring.

Lesnar stalks Rollins around the ring to then lift him up for an F5 to the floor! Rollins is gasping while Lesnar is glaring. Now? No, not yet. Lesnar drags Rollins up again to put him in the ring. He stops Rollins from getting to the chair, to then pick it up and SMACK Rollins again! And again! And again!! Now?! Lesnar grins, because he gives Rollins another German Suplex! Heyman almost pleads with Lesnar to cash-in! But Lesnar says it’ll be Friday. What? But it was supposed to be tonight! No, Lesnar wants this for Super Showdown. Lesnar picks up the belt to toss it onto Rollins. And then he uses the briefcase as a weapon! Lesnar laughs as he goes back to the chair he’s already destroyed with Rollins’ body, to SMACK him again and again and again!

Lesnar and Heyman leave, with fans booing and jeering while The Beast just laughs and “listens to his boombox.” There is no cash-in tonight, but will Lesnar return to Raw next week as the WWE Universal Champion? As for Rollins, the medical team has to bring him to a backboard and stretcher. Can Rollins even make it to Super Showdown at this point?

 

Raw returns as Rollins is brought to the ambulance.

Becky Lynch is among those by Rollins’ side as they load him into the back. She also hops in to be with Rollins for the ride. Is the Architect going to be able to make it to Super Showdown for Lesnar’s wanted cash-in?

 

Raw presents a new episode of Firefly Fun House!

A very special edition, at that. Bray Wyatt has something super serious to talk to us about. He puts on a sweatband, because it’s time to exercise~!

When it comes to mind, body and spirit, to be at your best, you gotta look good and feel good. But wait, who is this piggy pigging out? Huskes the Pig Boy doesn’t take care of his body. The chocolate tastes so good~! He wants more. Oh, Huskes. No one is going tot ell you, but all this gluttony is going to bite you in your tail. Or he could be great. People will tell him he’s a genius, with the whole world in his hands. Really? Yes, really! Wink.

But omg, is that…! “The both of you better get your act together, or else… Or else…!” Yowie wowie! Hold on, Boss. They’ll get Huskes in shape. Here’s how! Shake them hips and let your backbone slip. Pull up your pants to do the Muscle Man dance! Just follow his voice, you don’t have a choice. Pull up your pants for the Muscle Man dance! Wiggle that behind and erase your mind. Pull up your pants and do the Muscle Man dance! Yeah, that’s it. Wow, Huskes. Are you ready for a night out on the town? Yes, he feels better already. Now remember, fireflies. He’ll always light the way. You just have to let him in. See you next time~!

Well. That was sure something.

 

Triple H returns to Raw!

The Game is in Texas and heads to the ring, with another showdown with Randy Orton at Super Showdown! HHH takes up the mic as fans chant for “NXT!” He appreciates that, but tonight is about him and Orton. And speaking of, The Viper appears! The Wild Card Rule makes this possible on Raw, and Orton strikes his signature pose in the ring. Orton picks up his own mic and stares down with HHH. Fans chant for “RKO!” but HHH talks first. It’s been awhile since they’ve stood in the same ring. They both know what this face-to-face is about: drumming up interest in a fight. Fans hope the two men will say things or even fight, all to drum up the interest. But these 20 years together, nothing either man can say is new.

So HHH won’t waste anyone’s time with this. He will just say this: it’s been awhile since they’ve seen each other in the ring. But don’t let the suit fool you, HHH is going to Jeddah to kick Orton’s ass. Orton doesn’t mind that, but he wants HHH to know he’s not Batista. Orton is still the Legend Killer. HHH knows that better than most. Orton will gladly beat HHH this Friday for another notch on Orton’s belt. HHH sees it’s interesting. Watching those recap packages of their 20 years together, those unspeakable things they’ve done to each other. But it’s what HHH said that rang true. Putting pressure on Orton would make him a diamond in this business. HHH isn’t blowing smoke when he says Orton is one of the best ever. Just like HHH knew he would be.

But here’s the catch. A lot of people have tried to put HHH down. They’re gone, he’s still here. And Orton will not be the one. HHH starts to leave but Orton says before he goes, “can you promise me something?” That Friday, before stepping into the ring, HHH retrieves his balls from Stephanie’s purse. Orton laughs as his own line, but even HHH has to give a smirk and a nod. HHH gets back in the ring and likes that idea. He will do that. But they’re just so big, and it’s a burden to carry them around. HHH will see if he can put them in the carry-on. It’s hard to carry that weight around. Not that Orton would know, since he’s never had any. See you in Jeddah.

HHH drops the mic having left Orton speechless. Which one of these two living legends comes back an even greater icon?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin.

What does he have to say about what happened to Seth Rollins? We saw what happened, Rollins is in an ambulance. Corbin needs to get out of here. To celebrate! Lesnar just did Corbin a favor, so you’re now looking at the next WWE Universal Champion! Will Corbin cash-in on Lesnar’s hard work? Or is he just setting himself up to be the Beast’s prey at Super Showdown?

 

Ricochet VS Cesaro!

Here it is! The tiekbreaker of two of the most athletic and shockingly strong superstars today! Who wins big to perhaps put them in line for title shots on the Road to Stomping Grounds?

Raw returns as Cesaro makes his entrance. The bell rings and Ricochet runs right at Cesaro. Cesaro tosses Ricochet up but Ricochet lands on the buckles. Ricochet jumps back and lands on Cesaro’s shoulders, but Cesaro blocks the huricanrana! Cesaro lifts Ricochet up but Ricochet slips out, only to get run over. Things speed up and Ricochet gets caught into a tilt-o-whirl backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Cesaro throws European Uppercuts on Ricochet in the corner, then to his back. He grinds a boot into Ricochet’s head but lets up at 3. Cesaro stalks Ricochet and throws more EuroUppers. Ricochet falls back into a corner, and Cesaro stomps him more.

Cesaro drags Ricochet up and bumps him off buckles. Then he holds Ricochet up to put on a cobra clutch. Ricochet endures and fans build to a rally. Ricochet fights out and things speed up again, tilt-o-whirl flipping huricanrana! Cesaro is dizzy as he bails out of the ring, and Ricochet hurries after. Ricochet runs around the side, up onto the barriers, and gets another huricanrana! Fans fire up with Ricochet as he goes back to Cesaro. Ricochet drags Cesaro up but Cesaro elbows back hard. Cesaro pops Ricochet up tot he apron but gets a mule kick. Ricochet runs, moonsaults, and just topples Cesaro over! Both men are a bit dazed while we go to another break.

Raw returns again, and Cesaro has Ricochet in another chinlock. HE whips Ricochet but Ricochet sunset flips. Cesaro stays up and stands Ricochet up, but Ricochet pops up to another sunset flip! TWO, and Cesaro runs into a corner. Ricochet dodges to send Cesaro into a post! Cesaro falls back form the impact, and Ricochet hops up. Ricochet aims, but Cesaro uppercuts him down! Cesaro drags Ricochet up for a deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Ricochet lives and Cesaro is surprised. Cesaro stalks Ricochet as he rolls out of the ring. Cesaro again drags Ricochet up but Ricochet shoulders back. Ricochet punches and hotshots Cesaro away.

Ricochet goes for a repeat of last week, handstand to electric chair, but Cesaro is ready! Cesaro blocks and lifts, then blocks the sunset flip to flip Ricochet back! Time to go swinging! Around and around and around for about a dozen rotations! Ricochet is dizzy, and he staggers up into a BIG EuroUpper! Cover, TWO! Fans cheer while Cesaro drags Ricochet up again. Cesaro says Ricochet will never win, but he gets a big knee! And then a boot! Ricochet knees Cesaro back, then springboards, but is caught! Cesaro makes it a cover, TWO! Ricochet wheelbarrows to a victory roll, TWO! Ricochet runs, tilt-o-whirls and rolls up, with a bridge, Ricochet wins!!

Winner: Ricochet, by pinfall

The One and Only wins 2-1! But Cesaro blasts him from behind! Cesaro is a sore loser as he stomps Ricochet out. Fans boo as Cesaro goes for a ladder! Cesaro thinks not, and instead brings out a table! But wait, is that R-Truth!? Is that where the 24/7 Champion has been all Raw?! And here come the others! Ricochet wrecks Cesaro with a dropkick, all the way to the fans! Carmella helps Truth get going, but the roster is headed his way! Drake Maverick leads the charge with EC3 and others not far behind. They all swarm but Cedric Alexander FLIES onto them all! He wipes out everyone but Truth! And Maverick has him! Only to get a FABULOUS Kick!

But the chase continues! Alexander and Robert Roode are right on Truth’s heels, but they end up in the backstage area. Will Truth get to the end of Raw with the belt?

 

The Undertaker returns to Raw!

The Deadman is back again, because he prepares for a first-time-ever with GOLDBERG at Super Showdown! Taker goes to the ring, and fans give the Phenom a standing ovation. “Do you ever wonder what happens when you come face-to-face with death for the very first time?” Does the sky go dark? Does the ground rip open at your feet? Or do you choke at the stench of the souls already gone? Taker tells Goldberg that Friday, Super Showdown, all those answers will be questioned.

When they stand across the ring from each other, the smiling family man, with his wife and son watch on, must become the mythical icon once again! Because Taker promises this: if Goldberg is anything less, this first match will be Goldberg’s last. Taker will open the gates of Hell and unleash “an inhuman level of brutality” that Goldberg has never felt. “When the Reaper beckons, you answer his call.” Taker vows to take Goldberg’s soul for all eternity. Because Goldberg, you’re next!! Will this first-time be the last-time for these living legends?!

 


 

My Thoughts:

Well for a go-home, this was pretty par for the course. We got some fairly good action and last-minute progression for stories, but I felt like things started to drag somewhere. Again, the Wild Card Rule seems almost exclusive for the Shane VS Roman story, but at least we got it out early. I was surprised Texas was so strong behind Roman, but I suppose it’s helped by Shane being such a strong Heel. The Six Man Tag was really good, and it totally made sense for Shane to interfere and help his guys win. But obviously, with Shane standing tall here, there’s a good chance Roman wins at Super Showdown. This hopefully also keeps this story from bleeding into SmackDown, let SmackDown focus on Kofi, and even Finn VS Almas.

Obviously the Universal Championship and the Lesnar cash-in tease took up the majority of the night. Almost everyone knew Heyman talking about it on social media was just for hype, that we weren’t going to actually get the cash-in. But boy, the beating Lesnar put on Rollins was brutal, even for a Lesnar beating. I would think Rollins still makes it to Super Showdown, this is just for effective story making his match with Corbin seem more difficult. It was a good touch to have Becky by Rollins’ side, since a lot of fans already know about their real-life relationship. And the bottom line: I just hope something happens where Lesnar doesn’t come back with the belt. Otherwise, Vince is just undoing all the good he actually gave us going into Wrestlemania.

The arm wrestling match of Strowman VS Lashley was an interesting choice. I was surprised it actually went to a result, most of these I’ve seen end before an actual winner because the loser doesn’t want to actually lose. But Lashley being a sore loser was actually a good play for his Heel character, as was him showing off his strength by using Strowman’s finisher. Their match will be some good strength game stuff, but hopefully the winner of it gets to do something important going to Stomping Grounds. Mysterio giving up the belt because of injury was expected, but I’m really surprised he didn’t just say it was completely vacated. Joe is champion again, and perhaps Strowman is the contender coming out of Super Showdown so we finally get what was teased on the Superstar Shake-Up SmackDown.

The Raw Women’s Division didn’t get as much this week, though that’s partially because their build isn’t part of Super Showdown. Lacey held her own in that promo triple threat with Becky and Charlotte, but things seemed just a bit off in the match with Charlotte. At first it was scrappy in a good way, but after the commercial break, things were just kinda sloppy and mistimed. It was actually a good move, planned or not, for Becky to jump in. Fans were still loving her more just for being ringside than the other two in the match. Becky VS Lacey is surely happening at Stomping Grounds, and I’m pretty sure Becky wins that. The Women’s Tag Division is what’s really suffering, all because Vince chose to have Bayley & Banks lose to the IIconics, without a plan for the IIconics.

While Peyton & Billie are good as their characters and good enough int he ring, what’s the point of them winning if all they’re doing is losing? Granted, I like this growing pair of Nikki & Alexa, but what’s going to happen? Alexa either joins Bayely as a main roster Triple Crown winner and then… who knows, or they job to the champs who have been jobbing this whole time, for a rivalry of Alexa VS Nikki. If Vince had left those belts with Boss & Hug, we for one wouldn’t be wondering what Sasha is gonna do about WWE VS AEW, and they could have gone to TakeOver: XXV for a killer match! Ricochet VS Cesaro was a killer match, too, and I hope that line about a decade-long rivalry in the making comes true. And the match even gave us a great 24/7 Championship segue. Long live Truth as champion!

loved tonight’s Firefly Fun House! That meta was thick and juicy, something to sink your teeth into. “Huskes” was obviously a reference to Husky Harris, the original form of Bray Wyatt, in the same way his other puppets have been references to the original Bray Wyatt character. Devil puppet Vince and the song, solid gold ideas. This is all working out to make me want Bray’s in-ring return even more. I hope we get to Stomping Grounds and he just does something to someone, hopefully Rollins still as Universal Champion. Then the HHH and Orton face-to-face was fine, with good back and forth about their balls. And Undertaker closing was great, I just wish WWE and USA could still do the five-minute overrun because Taker almost got cut off. Hopefully Taker VS Goldberg works out, not sure how well either man can move.

My Score: 7.8/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Bloodline heads to the ring!

Glendale, AZ fires up as Roman Reigns leads the way for Paul Heyman, Jimmy Uso & Solo Sikoa. The Tribal Chief is handed the Universal Championship to hold it up for the pyro while everyone else holds up the ones. Roman is on day 1,279 as he continues down the ramp and enters the ring. And as it stands, in 36 days, he will defend the title against The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Roman raises the belt again for the second round of pyro, and then the fans can be heard torn between cheering and jeering. Heyman still hands the mic over to Roman, the fans boo harder, and Roman says, “Glendale, Arizona…! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!”

The fans are torn again, still plenty putting up the ones. Roman says it used to be louder. It has to be the fans and not Roman, so let’s try this again. “Phoenix, Arizona…! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!” The fans still boo but then a “CODY! CODY!” chant starts. Roman has a headache and says, “I’m gonna try this one last time. And if you don’t get on my page, I’ve fulfilled my obligation and I’m leaving. Last shot. Glendale, Arizona…! ACKNOWLEDGE ME!!” The fans are louder but just with more boos and chants for Cody. Roman says they’re done here. Call the FBO, fire up the jet, the appearance is done, you’re welcome.

But Heyman tells the Tribal Chief that they still have some other business to attend to, they cannot leave yet. He is coming out, remember? Just give Heyman a moment. The fans mock Roman with “Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye~!” Heyman says in just a moment, The People’s Champion, The BDE up in WWE, the Greatest Movie Star of All Time, will be out here live. THE ROCK! After these commercial messages. Roman is annoyed with the fans as they continue to boo, will the mood pick up after the break?

SmackDown returns, and yes, The Rock is here! Fans fire up as he makes his entrance, this time wearing a Versace shirt to parallel the classic vest from last week. The Great One swaggers his way to the ring as he gets his introduction, then grabs himself a mic. The Rock takes a moment to soak up all the heat, and then says, “Are you sure you wanna boo The Rock?” The fans boo harder! The Rock says it’s time to drop some gospel on them. He has news they’ll probably like, might even be proud of. Apparently, Glendale is ten miles away from Phoenix. So then, are there people from Phoenix here tonight?

The fans cheer and The Rock knew it. It makes sense. He did some research, and found this out. This is truth, this is fact, the number one city in America for cocaine and meth use is Phoenix, Arizona! The fans are weirdly torn about that. “And here’s what that means. Finally…! Your life has meaning! Because finally, you cactus loving crackheads worth shooting in your veins! As you sit and you look at The Rock (censoring of the crowd happens apparently), FINALLY! The Rock has come back to Arizooona~!” The fans do cheer that, at least. The Rock then says he is covered in chills, he’s in a good mood!

The Universal Champion, Roman, is in a good mood! Jimmy Uso is in a good mood! Even Solo Sikoa, though you wouldn’t know it by looking at him, but that is his happy face. He’s in a good mood. And here’s why they’re in a good mood, Arizona. Because once again, though it’s been decades, professional wrestling is cool! The fans cheer that! The Rock says pro-wrestling is exciting, it is in a word, electrifying once again. It’s why Birmingham, Alabama, they sold out. It’s why in Salt Lake City, they sold out. It’s why tonight in “this crack den with popcorn,” they are sold out! And it’s why next week, in Dallas, Texas, is sold out!

It’s why in two weeks, in Memphis, Tennessee, when The Rock comes home, that will sell out, too. And the reason why is because there is greatness among you. Wrestling is cool because of The Rock, Roman Reigns & The Bloodline! The fans chant for “ROCKY! ROCKY!” but also “CODY! CODY!” The Rock asks, “Y’know who’s not cool? Your hear, Cody Rhodes.” The Rock tells Cody he thinks he’s tough, wants to challenge Rock to go 1v1 with the Great One! The Rock sees Cody, hears Cody, and tonight in Arizona, here is The Rock’s answer. It’s NO! The fans boo but The Rock says “You think you’re just gonna one on one with The Great One just because you want to?”

That’s not how it happens! That ain’t the real world, Glendale! You know it and The Rock knows it. But guess what, Cody? The world wants to go 1v1 with The Rock. And y’know who else wants it? Every woman in this arena. The fans really go wild there. The Rock smiles and tells the “crackhead Karens” and “meth head Marys” to calm down. Ain’t no way they’re ready for The Rock’s 22 inches of Heaven! And no, keep your mind out of the gutter. Not The Rock’s “Holy Moses.” He means the guns hanging from his shoulders that he’ll wrap around Cody. But it ain’t gonna be 1v1. Cody, you think you’re tough, that you can go 1v1 with The Rock. Are you an idiot?

Cody’s got the biggest WrestleMania match of his career with the most dominant WWE Champion in HISTORY, and Cody’s challenging The Rock?! The Rock, Roman & Bloodline saw the challenge, heard it, laughed at it, but now, The Rock is being a businessman. Here is a counter offer. The Rock tells the fans to shut up and listen. Cody thinks he’s tough, him and his new bestie, “that walking clown emoji,” Seth Rollins, they think they’re tough, huh? So here’s the challenge. Night one of WrestleMania, the biggest tag team match in the history of the WWE! The biggest tag team in the history of pro-wrestling!

It will be Cody & Seth VS Universal Champion & People’s Champion! But not just a regular tag match, either. The Rock & Roman could just beat the piss out of ’em and be done with it, but no, here’s what they’ll do. IF those two jabronies beat Rock & Roman on night one, then on night two, Cody VS Roman will be free of The Bloodline. No Jimmy, no Solo, no Heyman, no Rock, they’re all barred from ringside. They’ll get the lawyers, the contracts, The Rock’s word and Roman’s word. IF Cody & Seth win, Cody can #FinishTheStory 1v1 with Roman Reigns. The fans rally up for “CODY! CODY!” but The Rock smirks.

The Rock says but, because there’s always a but. If, or rather when, Rock & Roman beat those two candy asses on night one, then on night two, the championship match, it is Bloodline Rules. Anything goes! The Rock might just pull up a chair next to Pat McAfee, call that match, Jimmy as referee, Heyman gets the foreign objects, Solo sings the national anthem. Yes, that is very funny, Solo has a great voice, but just sit there and shut up. The fans chant for “SOLO! SOLO!” and Solo is rather surprised, maybe a little nervous. It’s Bloodline Rules, The Rock takes that chair, and he’ll find his way to Cody to bash his brains in. And it’ll be legal!

So there’s a lot to think about, Cody. You think you’re tough, that you can even go 2v2 against the greatest duo in sports entertainment. Cody, meet them next week in Dallas to give us the answer. Because listen here, Cody, and “you walking emoji clown show,” Seth Rollins. If you do NOT accept the challenge, then you know, the fans know, and the world knows, The Rock will do everything in his power to make sure Cody does not win at WrestleMania. And there ain’t a man back there that can stop The Rock from doing it. You all know where The Rock sits. You all know The Rock is on the board, and owns it all! That means The Rock is your boss!

The fans boo but The Rock says there’s no one can stop him. No GM, no VP of who gives an F! But the fans chant “TRIPLE H! TRIPLE H!” The Rock ignores that to say here’s the thing, Cody. If you don’t accept the challenge… then The Rock & Roman will end your story tragically. So how tough do you think you are, Cody? Meet them in Dallas for SmackDown and give them the answer. “IF YA SMELLL~” WAIT. Roman cuts The Rock off?! Even Heyman is stunned! The fans are losing their minds as The Rock just stares at Roman. Roman gets the mic from Heyman, and he says he needs something.

Roman will do anything for the family, but he needs this one thing. Roman looks The Rock in the eye, and he tells The Rock, “Acknowledge me.” Fans are stunned to hear The Tribal Chief ask this of The People’s Champion! The Rock takes off his sunglasses to look Roman dead in the eye. The Rock says, “Roman Reigns… my family… I acknowledge you… as my Tribal Chief.” Fans are even more stunned! The Rock then holds out his hand, and Roman takes it. The fans tell The Rock, “You Sold Out! You Sold Out!” The Rock and Roman brush that off and The Rock says, “Let The Rock explain something to you idiots.

“This is family. And we will do anything for family. Now go home and smoke some more crack. IF YA SMELLLL~…” The Rock then hands it over to Roman?! Roman finishes it with, “What The BLOODLINE is cooking!” The Samoan Dynasty’s foundation is stronger than ever, will nothing stop them from completely dominating the WWE?

 

Grayson Waller and Austin Theory look at footage.

Waller says Randy Orton’s about to win the Chamber, and then BAM! Logan Paul gets him clean with the brass knuckles! But then LA Knight storms in and asks if they’ve seen AJ Styles. Nope. They don’t care where he is, either. LA Knight holds up the chair from Chamber and says let AJ know there’s a receipt waiting for him. Knight leaves, and A-Town Down Under goes back to the replay. And then Orton walks in to overhear them mocking him. Orton walks up and laughs at the video. Yeah, play it again. Uh, okay… Yes, RKO on Drew, Orton is excited but feeling sore, and then BAM! Logan knocks him out! Hilarious!

Orton says he’s never seen anything as funny as that. Actually, he has a great idea. Orton will do something hilarious just like that! It doesn’t matter who it is, but one of them goes to the ring to face Orton, and he’ll try to literally rip their head off! The fun part is, they get to choose who gets the holy hell beat out of them! Waller says Theory has talked about wanting to face Orton! Orton says good on Theory! See you later! Orton leaves and Theory says first Australia and now this. Waller keeps selling him out! Waller says no, this is a great chance for a main event with Orton! A-Town Down Under argues, but will Theory end up getting bit by The Viper?

 

Naomi VS Tiffany Stratton!

Speaking of Elimination Chamber, neither woman here won their match, with The Glow being eliminated by the Wrestling Barbie fairly early. Will Naomi get some payback here tonight? Or will SmackDown be put on #TiffyTime?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally up for “Tiffy Time!” and Tiff says see, Glendale gets it. The two tie up, Tiffy headlocks, but Naomi powers out. Tiffy runs Naomi over, keeps moving, but Naomi drops. Tiffy handsprings up and over and fans cheer. Tiff talks trash on Naomi, but Naomi gets around to waistlock, pull her back, and run to ELBOW Tiff down! The fans cheer as Naomi shows off with the no-hands cartwheel! The two reset, knuckle lock, but then Tiff kicks low. Tiff throws Naomi down by her hair, the ref reprimands but fans are torn. Tiff whips Naomi but Naomi reverses then runs up to SPLASH!

Naomi stomps Tiff, then lets off to get some space. Naomi runs up and basement dropkicks! Naomi then drags Tiff to a corner, TWO! Tiff crawls to the ropes but Naomi keeps cool. Naomi runs in again but is put on the apron. Naomi ROUNDHOUSES, then slingshots for a FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Tiff survives then bails out, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Tiff handsprings to back elbow in the corner! Then she snapmares Naomi and again says it’s Tiffy Time! Tiff runs to DOUBLE STOMP Naomi down! Cover, TWO!! Naomi survives and she flops to the apron. Tiff grows frustrated but she storms up to drag Naomi into the ropes. Naomi RAMS into Tiff, then reels her in, for the HEATSEEKER! Tiff falls back, Naomi covers, TWO! Tiff survives again but Naomi keeps on her. Naomi stands Tuff up but Tiff SLAPS! Naomi SLAPS! It’s a SLAP fight! Then it turns into forearms! Tiff ducks the roundhouse but not the KNEE! Tiff wobbles, Naomi runs but into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Tiff grits her teeth as she kicks Naomi away. The fans rally up as both women are on the mat. They sit up, Tiff is after Naomi first but Naomi JAWBREAKERS! Naomi CORNER BULLDOGS Tiff, then goes up and up and- NO, Tiff bails out to the apron! Naomi stops herself, grabs at Tiff, but the ref gets between them. Tiff CLAWS eyes, then POSTS Naomi! Tiff gets in, goes up and up, PRETTIEST MOONSAULT EVER! Cover, Tiff wins!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton, by pinfall

Naomi got pinned by Tiffany in the Chamber, she got pinned in a normal match, is SmackDown going to have no choice but to make Tiffany Stratton the Center of the Universe?

 

Bayley & Dakota Kai VS The Kabuki Warriors w/ Iyo Sky!

The Role Model & #CobraKai want their revenge on Asuka, Kairi Sane & The Evil Genius after their betrayal, but that might be easier said than done. The joshi hold all the gold, will they make sure Bayley & Dakota understand why?

SmackDown returns as Bayley makes her entrance, Dakota by her side and finally 100%. The moment they’re in the ring, DMG CTRL bails out and taunts them. The ref gets Bayley & Dakota to calm down and go to their corner, but then the Kabuki Warriors attack! Fans boo as Asuka & Kairi mug Bayley then get her up. They double whip then bypass to KICK, AX KICK, BULLDOG and BASEMENT DROPKICK! The fans boo but Iyo applauds. Asuka keeps after Bayley but Bayley trips her up! Bayley rains down hands but Asuka kicks her away. Asuka goes to a corner, Bayley runs in but is put on the apron.

Bayley ROCKS Asuka, climbs up, but Asuka distracts the ref so Kairi can CLUB Bayley down! Fans boo more but Asuka & Kairi just smile. Asuka then sits Bayley up to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! Bayley blocks one! Bayley ROCKS Asuka, shoves her then trips her while sliding out of the ring! Kairi runs up but Bayley DECKS her! Bayley glares at Iyo, hurries back in, but Asuka keeps her from Dakota! Bayley whips Asuka, Asuka reverses and sends Bayley into Dakota! Asuka pie faces Bayley and taunts her but the fans rally up. Bayley ROCKS Asuka in return, and then again! Asuka ROCKS Bayley, runs and tags, CODE BREAKER and BLOCKBUSTER!

The fans boo as the Kabuki Warriors aim at Bayley. SLIDING FOREARM KICK COMBO! Cover, TWO! Kairi is annoyed but she dribbles Bayley off the mat! The ref reprimands but Kairi tags in Asuka. Kairi feeds Bayley to BOOTS! Asuka & Kairi continue to soak up the heat, they double whip but Bayley crisscrosses them into each other! Bayley drop toeholds Kairi into ropes, but Asuka whips Bayley, Bayley goes up and out to ROCK Asuka, KNEE Kairi, and then she baits Asuka in for the HOTSHOT! The fans fire up and Bayley crawls her way over. Dakota rises up and the fans rally! But Asuka grabs a foot!

Bayley kicks Asuka away, turns around, hot- NO! Dakota ditches Bayley!? Fans boo but Bayley realizes she should’ve known all along that Dakota was a snake. Bayley still fights the Kabuki Warriors all her own, then she goes out to RAM Dakota into barriers! The fans are thunderous as Bayley gets even with the newest traitor! But then the Kabuki Warriors mug Bayley, put her back in, and they also have Dakota and Iyo join in. Dakota SLAPS Bayley, then Iyo BLINDSIDE KNEES Bayley down!

No Contest

Iyo taunts Bayley with the WWE Women’s Championship, saying it will always be Iyo’s! She shoves the belt into Bayley’s face then shoves Bayley down. It seems Bayley is truly alone in this fight, does she have any chance of winning the title at WrestleMania?

 

DMG CTRL regroups backstage.

They’re all happy that it’s the four of them against Bayley, and they pass by LA Knight hunting for AJ Styles. And then JADE CARGILL steps forward. Nick Aldis steps in to say he’ll deal with DMG CTRL later. For now, he and Jade have a meeting. The storm smiles and leaves with the GM, is she going to join SmackDown after all?

 

Bron Breakker VS Xyon Quinn!

The Big Bad Booty Nephew is back in action on The Blue Brand, still hot off last week’s debut win. Will he keep things going as we get closer and closer to WrestleMania Weekend? Or will Xyon prove he is still The It Factor?

The bell rings and Bron runs to SPEAR Xyon down!! Cover, Bron wins!!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall

Thanks for coming, Xyon! That was an incredibly fast win for Bron, perhaps even historically so! Is nothing going to stop Bron from breaking through to the main event scene?

 

WWE mourns the loss of Michael Jones, aka Virgil.

 

Street Fight: Carlito VS Santos Escobar!

This grudge match was meant to happen months ago, but Caribbean Cool could not be cleared to compete because the Emperor of Lucha made sure he couldn’t! But now things have escalated and there is nothing holding either man back! Will Carlito finally have vengeance for the LWO? Or will Escobar establish his Legado Del Fantasma above all others?

SmackDown returns and Santos makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two rush in to throw hands! The fans fire up as the fists fly, and Carlito ROCKS Santos! Santos shoves Carlito back but Carlito CLOBBERS Santos! Carlito rains down fists, stalks Santos to ropes then bumps him off buckles. Carlito shoves Santos out of the ring, goes out after him, then shoves him around. Carlito sends Santos into steel steps but Glendale wants tables. So Carlito goes looking, and he finds a table! The fans cheer but Santos gets in the ring. Carlito hurries in after Santos but Santos intercepts with a kick!

Santos ROCKS and CHOPS Carlito, fires more forearms, then whips Carlito. Carlito reverses and Santos goes back into steel steps! Carlito puts Santos back in the ring, the fans now want apples! Carlito can dig that, and goes looking. He finds a kendo stick! Not an apple but still really good. Wait, THERE is the apple! Carlito smiles as the fans fi reup, but Santos DIVES! Down goes Carlito and the apple and Santos laughs while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Santos is putting a trash can around Carlito! Santos runs corner to corner, to DOUBLE KNEE Carlito down! The can is removed as Santos covers, TWO!! Santos is frustrated, and he drags Carlito up to fire forearms! Santos throws Carlito out to the floor, then he builds speed. Santos DIVES into a CHAIR! The fans are thunderous as Carlito gets in and he stalks Santos. Santos stands, Carlito runs up to LARIAT! And ELBOW! Carlito gets that trash can to THROW it into Santos! Then Carlito picks the can up, but Santos puts up his guard! So Carlito puts it around him in return for earlier!

The fans cheer as Carlito now gets that chair, and he SMACKS the can! And SMACKS a leg! And then SMACKS away on the top of the can! Carlito frees Santos from the can, but drags him up to position the chair. FULL METAL TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO!! Santos survives and shocks Carlito! Carlito snarls, goes outside, and he brings out a TABLE! The fans fire up as Carlito gets that in the ring, then hurries after Santos. The fans cheer for Carlito as he sets up the table, but Santos KNEES Carlito down! Santos says no tables, then he drags Carlito up. Santos puts Carlito in a corner for a GAMANGIRI!

Santos puts Carlito up top, throws hands, then climbs up top to SUPER- NO, Carlito trips Santos up! The emperor lands bad on his throne, and Carlito YANKS the ropes! Santos falls, but ANGEL & HUMBERTO attack! The fans boo as Legado saves its leader, and then they get Carlito up. They whip Carlito and combine with Santos for a TRIPLE POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO?!? Carlito survives and no one can believe it! Santos says get the table and both Angel & Humberto stand it up. Santos says you ask and you shall receive. But then here comes Cruz & Wilde! They CLOBBER Angel & Garza, getting even for last week!

The fans fire up as those four brawl and Santos is frustrated. But then Angel POSTS Wilde and Humberto RAMS Cruz into steel steps! But wait! REY MYSTERIO is back?!? No one can believe this! But wait, Rey’s still on crutches after what Santos did to the leg. Angel & Humberto head up the ramp but wait! Rey’s leg is just fine! The crutches are now weapons! Rey SMACKS away on each man and Santos freaks out! He gets a two-for-one, even!! And then he stares down Santos. Santos snarls, dares Rey to do something about it then, and Rey goes up to the apron. The fans are losing their minds as Rey gets in Santos’ face!

Santos swings, Rey dodges! Carlito SPITS APPLE!! Then the BACKSTABBER! Santos ends up on ropes, Rey & Carlito DECK Angel & Humberto, then Cruz & Wilde FLY in! Direct hit on both Angel & Humberto, Rey dials up the 619!! And then SPINEBUSTER through the table!! Cover, Carlito wins!!

Winner: Carlito, by pinfall

The LWO celebrates together as they finally get revenge on Santos Escobar! And with Rey back, the team is at 100%! Will this be just what the group needed going into WrestleMania?

 

Nick Aldis meets with Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne.

The New Catch Republic talked it out, and they came so close to beating Judgment Day and taking the tag titles. We all saw if not for that Muppet, Dominik Mysterio, Bate & Dunne would be here the new tag team champions. Now, they’ll do whatever it takes to get another shot at WrestleMania. Whoa, WrestleMania? Aldis appreciates them coming to him with this, and yes, he saw it like everyone else that Dom cheated them. But making them the opponents for WrestleMania? That’s a tall order. He can say now, though, that he and Adam Pearce have been talking. They are going to have announcement they can share soon.

Aldis then overhears someone making a ruckus and excuses himself to go see. It’s LA Knight still looking for AJ Styles. Aldis asks what Knight is doing and Knight says he knows damn well what he’s doing. If there’s anyone who knows, it’s Aldis. Where’s Styles? Aldis does know, but he also saw Knight and Styles get into it at Chamber. Aldis told Styles not to be here. Well, then don’t get in front of this train because here’s the thing. Styles found it fitting to fly across the damn globe just to screw Knight over, that Knight wasn’t going to fight for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania.

And right now, Styles must be feeling real good about himself, maybe drunk off that power. But guess what? The hangover’s coming. So whether Aldis will invite Styles here or have him stay at home, Knight’s gonna find Styles, and he’ll make sure to give him this souvenir, “custom fit” for him, YEAH! And there ain’t a thing anybody, not even Aldis, can do about it. Oh yeah? YEAH. Knight leaves, but is Aldis left with no choice but to sort this one out?

 

Kevin Owens is here!

And just like before, he’s going to be a special guest on commentary! Will the Prizefighter really enjoy seeing what’s about to happen in the main event?

Randy Orton VS Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller!

There’s no denying The Viper got screwed over by The Maverick, but A-Town Down Under should’ve known better than to laugh about it in the locker room. Will either of them be laughing when Randy RKOs Austin Theory live?

SmackDown returns and Theory makes his entrance, Waller right behind him. Kevin plugs Progressive and its great bundle, then says Theory & Waller are idiots, they probably don’t bundle anything. Then Randy makes his entrance and the fans fire up! Wade Barrett asks if Kevin will keep his fists to himself, and Kevin says with it being Randy out here, Randy will do fine all on his own. The bell rings and the two rush in. Or1ton blocks a kick and throws uppercuts! The fans rally behind “RANDY! RANDY!” as he bumps Theory off buckles then throws more UPPERCUTS! Orton climbs up and he rains down fists!

The fans count along, Orton makes sure each one hits hard, and he goes up to nine, to then UPPERCUT for ten! The fans cheer while Kevin says Orton might’ve heard Kevin counting along. Orton pursues Theory outside, throws more UPPERCUTS, then he SMACKS Theory off the desk! Kevin wants the back suplex! Fans cheer, but Waller gets Theory outta there! The fans boo but Waller apologizes, only for Theory to POST Orton! Theory then reels Orton in, Kevin says don’t you dare. But Theory DESK BACK SUPLEXES Orton! The fans boo as Theory mocks the Orton pose, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns once again and Theory CLOBBERS Orton in the ring! Theory taunts the fans, soaks up the heat, and then goes to the apron. Theory goes up the corner while still taunting the fans, but Orton gets up to ROCK him first! The fans fire up and Orton throws more hands! Orton then climbs up after Theory, Kevin brings up Orton’s back being a concern, but the HEADBUTT works! Orton then brings Theory up but then one of them slips! Orton lands safe on his feet and he still suplexes Theory! Even Kevin’s never seen something like that! Orton drags Theory around, and stomps him down.

Orton then gets Theory’s arm, drags him up and whips him to a corner. Theory reverses, but Orton comes back to LARIAT! The fans fire up as Orton rallies with more clotheslines, then he SNAP POWERSLAMS! Theory flounders and the fans fire up more. Orton runs up to clothesline Theory up and out of the ring! Kevin wants the desk suplex and so Orton gets Theory up. DESK BACK SUPLEX! Theory writhes, Kevin and the fans applaud, and Orton gets Theory into the ring. Orton then kicks Waller, and gives him a DESK BACK SUPLEX! Kevin points out that bounce! Waller writhes, Orton shoves him off the desk, then goes back to the ring.

Theory runs up, Orton puts him in ropes! Orton has Theory set, DRAPING DDT! The fans are ready and Orton hears the voices in his head! Orton watches Theory rise, RK- NO! Theory RAMS Orton into buckles, then POSTS him! Theory runs corner to corner, somersaults and BLOCKBUSTERS! Theory covers, TWO!! Orton survives and shocks Theory! Theory says it’s time, though, and he brings Orton up. Fireman’s carry, but Orton kicks free! So Theory throat chops, then CHOP BLOCKS! Theory snarls, says “All! Day!” RUNNING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Orton is still in this and Theory is losing his cool!

Orton goes to the apron, and Theory gets an idea. Theory drags Orton through the ropes and grins! Fans boo as Theory is looking to mock Orton, but Orton gets free! Orton dumps Theory to the apron, but Theory HOTSHOTS back! Theory slingshots in, into an RKO!! Even Kevin is marking out for that one! Cover, Orton wins!

Winner: Randy Orton, by pinfall

The Viper proves he can strike outta nowhere, but then Waller does the same! But Kevin runs in to fire off on Waller! Kevin stomps away but Theory CLUBS Kevin! Theory stomps Kevin, the fans boo as A-Town Down Under mugs the Prizefighter, but then Kevin fights back! STUNNER for Theory! Kevin dodges Waller, but Waller denies the stunner! Only to get an RKO!! The Apex Predator stands tall with KO as they run off Waller & Theory, and they even fist bump. Will both icons make sure Waller, Theory and Logan Paul get what’s coming to them on the Road to WrestleMania?


My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown to follow Elimination Chamber here. Though I will say, did The Bloodline really need like, the first half hour just for themselves? Granted, it was an awesome half hour because for one, The Rock is still incredible on the mic, and then Roman pulling rank on him with “acknowledge me” was wild. That moment in itself could cause a rift to form, but I do like that they gave us the WrestleMania dream team tag match as has been theorized since the press event in Vegas. Rock adding extra stakes on top of it is great stuff, a real all or nothing for Cody here. And equally wild, I think The Rock takes the loss so that Cody has Roman truly 1v1.

I mostly say that because if Cody beats Roman when EVERYONE is ringside, that’s almost too much power for the new Universal Champion. Cody should have Roman fair and square for once in Roman’s entire reign, he should win straight up, and that will cap off “the story” for Cody and Roman. Now granted, I could easily see them go the other way, too. Maybe Cody takes the loss to make it Bloodline Rules, but then The Rock being ringside, he could actually help Cody against The Bloodline and that’s The Rock getting even with Roman for what he just did here tonight. Then we get Rock VS Roman as a feud separate from a title because it’ll be about who’s really in charge.

Moving on, great stuff with LA Knight going all over looking for AJ Styles, and good promo with him and Aldis. Knight VS Styles definitely has to happen by WrestleMania, that’ll be awesome stuff, and we could even tie in the rest of The OC. Gallows & Anderson are in NXT and building themselves towards a tag title match for Stand & Deliver. They will therefore be in Philadelphia, too, and could join Styles as a Heel to screw Knight over and refresh The OC’s run on main roster. Meanwhile, Bate & Dunne talking with Aldis about the tag titles was a good promo, and I do like the tease of something big for the tag titles at Mania. Separating them? Getting new belts to keep them unified? Either idea is fine by me, can’t wait to see which they go with.

Tiffany VS Naomi 1v1 was good, and I figured Tiffany would win to keep going strong in singles matches. And while I kept wanting/hoping Dakota to stay loyal to Bayley, I should’ve known she was gonna betray Bayley. Now Bayley is alone, and maybe has to turn to former enemies for help, like Bianca Belair. Jade Cargill also being present tonight, maybe she gets involved and joins Bianca against Asuka & Kairi for the tag titles. That’d be a way to keep The EST streak for WrestleMania while also giving Jade a big start to her WWE career. And nice of WWE to get Xyon Quinn TV time, even to get squashed hard by Bron Breakker.

Great Street Fight from Carlito and Santos. This was a great moment to bring Rey Mysterio back, though Carlito winning on behalf of LWO is now an interesting move. I mean, it was for the best so everyone would be happy with Rey’s return and Santos getting what he deserves. I guess we’ll still be getting Santos VS Rey to settle things once and for all at Mania, so that’s good, too. Good promo of Orton finding Theory & Waller laughing at Logan Paul’s sucker punch, and that banter of Logan Paul and the ref “I tricked you!” “N-No, I knew!” was admittedly good stuff. Logan’s proving he really is worthy of being such a strong Heel, despite fans having a hard time accepting him from his past reputation.

Orton VS Theory was a great main event, especially with Kevin on commentary. I think Kevin was very genuine the whole time, and how could he not be given that truly incredible save and adjustment by Orton in the botched superplex. Orton of course wins here, with Kevin helping him fight off A-Town Down Under. A tag match of Theory & Waller VS Orton & Kevin would be a lot of fun, and it’d help keep both Orton and Kevin strong going towards some sort of US Championship match with Logan at Mania.

My Score: 8.8/10
