PLAY BY PLAY

WWE stands with El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

A moment of silence and a 10 bell salute for the victims and affected communities.

 

Raw has a new entrance theme!

Papa Roach’s Born for Greatness is officially THE opening theme for the show!

 

Samoa Joe is shouting at commentary!?

The Samoan Submission Machine doesn’t care that he’s interrupting regularly scheduled programming to right a wrong! “Oh what happened to Roman Reigns on SmackDown last week?” Joe keeps getting accusations from the fans! Roman may not have made claims himself, but he’s just as guilty of slander. Was Joe anywhere near that incident!? What dose Michael Cole have to say about it?! Cole tries to talk Joe down but Joe is still furious! But a poll of fans has 80% of them believing it wasn’t just an accident. Well 80% of the fans are idiots! So Joe makes it clear: roll the footage to find out the truth!

Footage does play of Roman approaching the interview space, only for girders to fall! No serious damage was done to the Big Dog, but perhaps only by a miracle. Roman left on his own two feet, but clearly just as confused and concerned as many. Joe doesn’t see one frame of footage of himself! Where is anyone’s proof?! They’ll make Joe a suspect just because, but Joe will wait for Roman to arrive to shut this show down until an apology is given! And if anyone has a problem with that- The Man comes around to shut Joe up! Becky Lynch doesn’t care about what Joe’s issues are, she’s here to settle some of her own!

 

Natalya & Trish Stratus VS Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair!

It’s a Canadian connection as the Queen of Harts and the iconic six-time Women’s Champion team up against their SummerSlam opponents! But can The Man and The Queen coexist to roll into Toronto?

Raw returns as the bell rings and Becky ties right up with Natty. They go around on the ropes but Natty lets up. Becky shoves but Natty shoves back. Becky goes after the arm but Natty rolls. Becky still waistlocks but Natty shifts and gets the fireman’s carry takedown! Natty has an armlock and dares Becky to break her arm now.

Ronda would be proud, but Becky rolls to a cover, TWO! Becky wants to steal the Sharpshooter!? Natty shoves her off but Becky goes for the Disarm-Her. But Charlotte tags in! Charlotte tells Becky to move aside so she can take care of this.

Charlotte kicks Natty and CHOPS her! And chops and chops! Natty reverses the whip but Charlotte tumbles out to shoulder in. Charlotte slingshots and rolls Natty but Natty is up and tilt-o-whirls to a sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Natty clubs Charlotte hard, then snapmares her. Natty runs and walks all over Charlotte, only for Charlotte to trip her up! Charlotte then BOOTS Natty down, and taunts Trish. Charlotte kicks Natty down again then throws her against the mat.

Natty and Trish still reach for each other, but Charlotte brings Natty away. natty gets up and fights back to arm-drag Charlotte off. But Charlotte runs her over with a clothesline.

Charlotte goes to tag Becky, but then changes her mind. She puts Natty through the ropes to pull back. Charlotte lets up at 4 with a “WOO~!” Fans rally for Becky, and Natty starts throwing hands.

Natty reaches but Charlotte intercepts her and throws her down! She swings on Trish but Trish gets clear. Natty rolls Charlotte, TWO! Charlotte boots and scoops for the exploder! The Queen kips up and taunts Trish. The ref keeps Trish back to keep this from breaking down.

Charlotte drags Natty up as fans rally. Charlotte runs but Becky tags in! Becky one-ups Charlotte, but Charlotte BOOTS Becky down! Charlotte is done with this match, so she just leaves the ring and goes up the ram. Natty gets Becky in the Sharpshooter!! A reminder that their match is a Submission Match! But Becky gets the ropebreak! Natty holds past 5, this match is thrown out!

Winners: Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, by disqualification

Trish goes to pull Natty off Becky, but Becky just shoves Trish away! The Queen of Harts brings out claws already, just how vicious will she be when she gets to do what she wants to make Becky quit?

 

Rey Mysterio VS Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega!

This rivalry was revived last week in the United States Championship Contender’s Gauntlet, and was made even more personal than before after El Idolo literally ripped the mask apart! Will the King of Lucha Libre get his revenge? Or will El Ingobernable Orginal continue to show disrespect even now?

The bell rings and Almas goes right at Mysterio! But Mysterio is ready and he dropkicks the leg out! He clubs away then runs, but into a tilt-o-whirl backbreaker! Mysterio kicks back from the mat then enziguris Almas onto ropes! Dial it up, but Almas runs Mysterio over with a shoulder! Fans boo but Mysterio dodges the basement dropkick to cover!

La Muneca continues to help her client succeed when he struggles! Will this end things between them and Mysterio? Will this lead to El Idolo having a title match in the near future?

 

Raw shares footage from the Kanellis OBGYN appointment…

Mike read magazines while in the lobby with Maria. But she insisted he pay attention to her, the first-ever pregnant champion in WWE history. Maria bragged to everyone that she is a trailblazer. And Mike has one job: protect her, her unborn child, and her WWE 24/7 Championship. Mike promises not to let her down. She doesn’t seem to trust that. Maria’s turn comes, and she has Mike follow her in. What is the fate of this anywhere, anytime, anyone title?

 

Raw returns to the continuation of the Kanellis appointment.

Maria gets comfortable with her title, and tells Mike to stop massaging. Mike needs to make her proud. Show her he’s a man by protecting the title. Of course he’ll do that. But just relax, focus on their new baby. Mike hugs Maria and they lie down on the chair. But then someone starts slapping his back? The “doctor” was a female referee!! Mike just betrayed and pinned Maria!!

Winner: Mike Kanellis, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

He just tricked his own wife! However, in the lobby… Truthina and Carl Mella are here! They followed the Kanellises?! OBG Why not? And Mike has something that belongs to Truth. Uh oh, his water broke! Baby doll attack! And roll up! Truth wins!!

Winner: R-Truth, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

And off goes the FABULOUS Truth! Mike got his baby, and now Truth has his! Just where is this title going to go next?!

 

Backstage interview with Becky Lynch!

The Raw Women’s Champion is still sore, and also upset, over what went down earlier tonight. Will home field advantage give Natty an edge in their Submission Match? It better. Natty better bring all 9000 Hart family members for moral support, because if she’s let Canada down so far, it’s not going to change anything being there. Now Natty complains “the machine” has gotten behind Becky, it’s because Becky fought until the company didn’t have a choice! Becky wasn’t walking the line like a good little girl hoping everyone will like her enough not to fire her. Natty can act like Becky should be ashamed, but Becky is on top! Becky changed the business why Natty changed her swimsuit. Becky fought with a broken face while Natty was taking selfies with duck face. This is the one thing Natty has been missing in her career, and Canada will get a new hero in Becky.

 

Natalya responds.

“There is going to be a huge celebration” when Natty wins in front of her people. Becky won’t tap Natty no matter what. That Sharpshooter earlier is just a taste of how Natty will end Becky’s career! Will either woman have a leg to stand on or an arm to lift that title when it’s all said and done?

 

Steel City is now Suplex City!

The Beast and the Advocate are here just a week before the SummerSlam WWE Universal Championship match. However, Seth Rollins vows to make it to Toronto regardless of what Brock Lesnar did to him last week. Will that be true?

Paul Heyman begins his usual introduction, and grins as he says he is the Advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion, BRRROCK! LESNARRR! And his client has authorized and instructed Heyman to educate the WWE Universe. A few questions that aren’t rhetorical: “Wasn’t Seth Rollins supposed to be the Beastslayer? Wasn’t Seth Rollins supposed to be the Conqueror’s Conqueror? Wasn’t Seth Rollins supposed to be the one man that had Brock Lesnar’s number?” Wasn’t he the Architect of Arson that would #BurnSuplexCityDown? Isn’t he supposed to be this generation’s hero, Seth Freakin’ Rollins? The answer to all that and more “lies in a piece of footage” that Heyman will play “right freakin’ now.”

That footage is of course from last week’s Raw, when Lesnar and Heyman shocked us all by appearing, and then shocked everyone even more as Lesnar would brutalize Rollins without hesitation or remorse. Barriers, German Suplexes, and repeated F5’s to a standing steel chair were enough to get Rollins carried out on a stretcher to an ambulance in the back. But that carnage somehow wasn’t enough for Lesnar. He forced the ambulance to stop, so that he could drag Rollins out and F5 his already damaged body onto the stretcher! In the present, Lesnar laughs at his vicious attack.

Heyman admits he dropped to his knees to beg Lesnar to show even just a shred of mercy. Heyman knew in his heart that WWE does need a new hero. And after what Rollins endured last week at the hands of Lesnar, things that even Heyman was shocked by, he has some inside information he would love to share. “Seth Rollins is here in Pittsburgh tonight.” The fans cheering confuses Heyman. Why would they cheer a man who would go down in a blaze of glory like that? It proves Rollins has more balls than brains. And speaking of, here’s Rollins right now! At least, his music is. But there he is! Steel chair in hand, somehow managing to walk on stage! Heyman and Lesnar stand firm, and Lesnar even eggs Rollins on.

Rollins hobbles up the steel steps, onto the apron, and somehow gets through the ropes. Only for Lesnar to kick him right in the bad ribs! Lesnar steps on the chair Rollins brought in, to then take it for his own! And he jams it into Rollins’ already ruined ribs! And he SMACKS Rollins on his battered back! “When are you going to learn?” Lesnar asks as he hauls Rollins up. He rams Rollins into the corner buckles! Rollins still crawls, glaring with hatred, but Lesnar just picks him up and rams him into the corner again! Fans are mostly silent as Lesnar rips Rollins’ shirt off to show those taped up ribs and back. Lesnar dares Rollins to stand, and Rollins does, only for Lesnar to shove him into the corner! Rollins runs at Lesnar but gets a knee to the gut! And then, another F5!

Heyman hands Lesnar the belt back and Lesnar stands over Rollins as he holds it up high. Fans boo as Lesnar and Heyman leave. We doubted if there’d be a match at SummerSlam given last week, but is the official cancellation?

 

Raw shares footage from the commercial break.

At the mere appearance of a stretcher, Lesnar rushed the ring again, to F5 Rollins again!

 

Raw returns to Seth Rollins wanting a mic.

Despite referees and medics wanting to get him to the back, Rollins speaks. “It’s gotten to the point… where I have to ask myself… Is this worth it?” Is all the pain worth it? “You love something so much, you’d do anything to protect it, to keep it safe. Even if the thing you love keeps getting you beat to a pulp.” Rollins thinks on his own question, and his answer is YES! This is all he is. “Every second of every day,” this is all Rollins has ever wanted, and it is all he has. So at SummerSlam, Rollins vows to beat Brock Lesnar. Rollins drops the mic and crawls out of the ring while fans cheer “Burn It Down!” Rollins even ruses to take the stretcher out this time. But with it hard to walk, stand, or even breathe, what hope does Rollins have of beating the Beast?

 

Backstage interview with Pittsburgh’s own, Kurt Angle!

The Olympic Gold Medalist is going to be a special guest referee tonight, and  here come the Street Profits. Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins officially introduce themselves, and plug NXT TakeOver: Toronto this Saturday, they want to cross some T’s and dot the three I’s. Intensity, Integrity and Intelligence. They want to do that, by sharing some beverages with Kurt Angle! Milk! Angle promised the wife he wouldn’t get crazy tonight. Wait, is this Angle or Mike Kanellis? But Angle is a hero to everyone, so please. Just one. Yeah! Ford fills the red Solo cups and cheers! But Drew McIntyre now appears.

Hilarious, boys, really. But overhearing all this stuff, he couldn’t help but split his sides. And he comes in peace. A reminder of what happened when they were in the ring together. Call the match down the middle, Angle. Or McIntyre will humble Angle again. Just a friendly reminder. Otherwise, McIntyre will crack Angle’s skull open. It’s true, it’s damn true. Will Angle be able to keep his emotions in check when he calls McIntyre’s match with Cedric Alexander later on?

 

The Viking Raiders VS Jay Alexander & Eric Abraham!

The war comes to Steel City! What happens to Pittsburgh’s own in this match?

The bell rings and Ivar goes right at Abraham with big knees! Then he hits Jay down to throw Abraham to a corner. Tag to Erik for knees all around! Erik sees Jay return and drags him in through the ropes for a German Suplex! Then he knees Abraham and rocks him with a rolling elbow! Erik scoops Jay for a gutbuster, then tags Ivar in before gutbuster powerbomb’ing Jay down! Ivar climbs and LEAPS for a viking splash! Abraham gets THOR’S HAMMER! Cover, the Viking Raiders win!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, Ivar pinning

The raid will not be stopped by mere mortal men! Who is next to have a #VikingExperience?

 

WWE mourns the loss of Harley Race.

 

Cedric Alexander VS Drew McIntyre, Special Guest Referee: Kurt Angle!

Pittsburgh cheers their hometown hero as he returns to the ring in a different capacity. The Scottish Terminator still has beef with the Age of Alexander, will things be settled with a WWE Hall of Famer calling the shots?

But speaking of that grudge, McIntyre attacks from behind! He clobbers Alexander then throws him into the apron, and then the barriers! Then he CHOPS Alexander off his feet! McIntyre clubs away then whips Alexander to the far side! McIntyre throws a BIG haymaker, then drags Alexander in the reverse Alabama. But Alexander fights out and boots McIntyre into the post! Alexander climbs the barriers, and LEAPS to tornado DDT McIntyre into the floor! Both men are down, so what is Angle to do? Oh no! Not the blackout! That means… THE FIEND HAS ANGLE! Bray Wyatt has Angle in the mandible claw!! He smothers Angle! Is The Fiend going to stack up victims before facing Finn in Toronto?!

 

Champions VS Champions: The New Day VS The OC w/ AJ Styles!

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions jump onto Raw to repay the favor from last week’s huge SmackDown! And now we get a tag team Champions VS Champions match out of it! But of course, the Good Brothers make sure to have their Phenomenal leader with them! Will Styles become a factor in this match?

The bell rings and Anderson goes right at Woods. He whips Woods to a corner but Woods elbows back. Gallows and Styles run at Woods while taking out Big E! The ref throws this match out!

Winners: The New Day, by disqualification

The New Day are down and the OC stomp away. Styles goes after Woods, but here comes the One and Only! Ricochet is Styles’ challenger this Sunday, and he is here to help the New Day! He dumps Gallows out, kicks Anderson down, then handspring headscissors and dropkicks Styles out to join them! Styles is speechless but Ricochet and the New Day want more! Are we getting a massive Six Man after the break?

 

Six Man Tag: Ricochet & The New Day VS The OC!

We are! Will the King of Flight be the edge for Xavier Woods and Big E to shut up the #OriginalOfficialandOnly Club this close to SummerSlam?

Raw returns as Styles has the headlock. Ricochet fights out but Styles reverses again to whip Ricochet. Ricochet goes up and over and arm-drags Styles around! Ricochet then huricanranas and Styles goes to the apron. Styles has Ricochet back off before he returns. They tie up and Styles kicks low. Ricochet forearms back but Styles yanks him into buckles. Styles brings Ricochet up for a suplex but Ricochet slips out to roll up, ONE! Ricochet wheelbarrows to a victory roll, TWO! Styles throat chops Ricochet down! He puts Ricochet in the OC corner to tag Anderson. Anderson gets forearms from Ricochet, but reverses the whip. Ricochet rolls off Anderson’s back and spins Anderson for a jumping neckbreaker! Cover, TWO!

Ricochet tags in Big E and Big E throws hands on Anderson. Big E reels Anderson in for more, but Anderson ducks the lariat to mule kick the leg! Tag to Gallows for a BOOT! Gallows throws big hands on Big E in the OC corner, then uppercuts! He headbutts Big E down, then drags him up for a suplex! Cover, TWO! Gallows rains elbows down on Big E then wraps on a chinlock. Big E works his way up and fights out, but Gallows shoves for the Yakuza Kick! He clobbers Ricochet just because, too! Gallows runs corner to corner but misses Big E! Styles tags in and goes at Big E, and drags him into the OC corner. Big E fights out with big hands! But he misses once and Styles has the Phenomenal Blitz! Styles slips out of the suplex to hit Woods down. He hits Big E, springboards but misses! Big E catches Styles for the overhead suplex!

Both Big E and Styles are down! Styles crawls as Woods returns! Hot tags to Anderson and Woods! Woods goes at the OC with furious forearms! Mule kick to whip, but Anderson revers. Woods dodges and ducks to slide and rolling elbow! Styles throws Woods to a corner but gets a boot! Woods hits the Honor Roll lariat! Woods runs at Anderson, Shining Wizard! Cover, but Gallows breaks it! Ricochet springboard dropkicks in! Big E clotheslines Gallows out! PHENOMENAL FOREARM for Big E! Dropkick-flip and enziguri for Styles!

Winners: The OC, Gallows pinning

The golden Good Brothers are rolling into Toronto! But will Styles still be champion after going 1v1 with the One and Only?

 

Samoa Joe still waits for Roman Reigns.

The Big Dog is on his way, and Joe is going to shut the show down! Will he get his way after the break?

 

Raw returns to Samoa Joe storming back out to the ring!

“Roman Reeeeigns~!” Joe heard about Island Time but this is ridiculous. He won’t wait any longer. Roman is around, so he should just walk out, get in the ring, and apologize. No? Fine! Joe will do this the hard way. He puts a chair in the ring and takes a seat. “Ladies and gentlemen, Raw is officially SHUT DOWN until Roman Reigns walks down here and apologizes to me in person!” He gives Roman until the count of three. One. Two. Three. Still nothing from Roman. All Roman has to do is come out. Unless he’s scared. Joe has all night, Roman. He’ll keep the fans waiting. “Where you at, Roman?!” It’s all on him.

Joe doesn’t want fans to blame him. This is because Roman is too cowardly to apologize! Joe lounges back in his chair as he waits. Joe talks with a stage hand. Roman is finally here? Well then as much as Joe wants to hang out with the ungrateful fans, he’ll go find Roman himself! Joe storms to the back, but will he find Roman for that apology?

Cameras follow Joe to the parking lot. Joe spots Roman’s car and starts shouting. Roman gets out and trash talks with Joe. But then another car hits Roman’s!! Who just tried to assassinate Roman again?!

 

Raw shares footage from the commercial.

Joe is stunned as the car that went after Roman just peels out! Roman is down, and Joe tells him to just stay put. He shouts for a medic. It seems he can’t get an apology if Roman is too hurt to give it. Triple H even appears to check on Roman. Roman’s health aside, just who is after his well-being?

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships Elimination Fatal 4 Way: The IIconcis VS The Kabuki Warriors VS Fire & Desire VS Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross!

FINALLY Peyton Royce and Billie Kay will put these titles on the line! No more chicken flu or puppy fever, they must take on Asuka, Kairi Sane, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, AND The Goddess and her loyal follower! Are we guaranteed to get new Women’s Tag Team Champions this close to SummerSlam?

Raw returns and the official introductions are finally given. The belts are raised and the teams sort out, and we begin with Mandy and Billie. Billie and Mandy circle and tie up. Billie brings Mandy to the corner and rags in Peyton for some IIconic mudhole stomps. Billie tags back in and the IIconics double kick and double kick! Then they deck the Kabuki Warriors just because! They pie face Nikki and Alexa away, but Sonya tags in! Sonya runs into Sole Food, and Nikki runs into the heel kick! Alexa runs into a right hand, then the IIconics double wheelbarrow suplex her up and down! The IIconics intercept Kairi Sane and double suplex her for the gourd buster! But Asuka runs in, ducks the heel kick but not the boot! The IIconics give her the bulldog to Billie’s knee!

Fans boo but the IIconics are surprisingly standing tall! Unitl Mandy clobbers them from behind! Roll up on Billie, ONE! Mandy kicks and fires forearms off on Billie! Then she runs, but into a rolling elbow from Billie! Billie is mad now as she drags Mandy up. Peyton returns, and they combine for the wheelbarrow- Sonya roundhouses Peyton down! Mandy rolls Billie, TWO! Kiss from a Rose knee! Cover, Fire & Desire ELIMINATE the IIconics! We are guaranteed new champions now! The three teams left regroup while we go to break.

Raw returns and Alexa is speechless at how fired up Nikki is to start for her team. But Alexa has her calm down long enough for a tactics talk. Nikki tags in Asuka per Alexa’s idea, and now the Empress of Tomorrow circles with Mandy. They tie up and go around, Asuka puts Mandy on the ropes. Mandy shoves Asuka away but is frightened as Asuka starts swinging kicks! Mandy uses the ropes as defense and tags Alexa in! Alexa smiles at Asuka, but then tags right out to Sonya. Sonya isn’t afraid of Asuka, and the two go around. Asuka keeps clear of Sonya’s grip, then they tie up. Asuka goes for a leg but Sonya gets the headlock. Asuka fights out but Sonya bumps her, only for asuka to come back and run her over! Asuka gives swift kick after kick to Sonya’s chest!

Sonya backs Asuka down, then runs, but the Shining Wizard misses. Asuka hip attacks Sonya down while Kairi tags in. The Kabuki Warriors whip and push Sonya to kick, ax and bulldog to basement dropkick! Fans fire up and Paige applauds. Sonya tags Alexa, and now Alexa is just as wary of Kairi as she was Asuka. Kairi points out, she’s actually taller than Alexa! Alexa laughs it off while Kairi offers a handshake. Alexa goes to take it, but Kairi leaves her hanging while saluting! Taller and more mischievous!? Alexa laughs again, but then she and Kairi tie up fast and furious. But then Alexa kicks Kairi low to say, “Who’s taller now?” And Alexa even mocks the salute. But Kairi trips her up to drop double stomps! Cover, TWO!

Kairi keeps on Alexa with a wrench, and tags to Asuka. Asuka climbs to drop ax handles on the arm! Asuka waistlocks Alexa but Alexa tags out to Mandy. Asuka rolls Alexa but Mandy DECKS her! Tag to Sonya, and they double whip Asuka. Double kicks and knees to then throw Asuka down. Sonya covers, TWO! Sonya keeps on Asuka with a full nelson, then tags in to Mandy. Asuka fights back as Pittsburgh rallies! But Kiss from a Rose hits again! High stack, TWO! Mandy glares while Paige is relieved Asuka survives. Mandy underhooks and lifts Asuka, but can’t keep her up. So Mandy tries again, but Asuka fights out this time. Asuka slips out, pop-up knee! Then armbar takedown! Into Asuka Lock! Kairi keeps Sonya away while Mandy TAPS! The Kabuki Warriors ELIMINATE Fire & Desire!! Now it’s just them and Bliss-Cross, after the break!

Raw returns once again, and Nikki is in a kneebar from Asuka! Nikki crawls for her corner but Alexa can’t reach her. Asuka drags Nikki away slowly but surely! She shifts the hold into a Queen Angelito Stretch! A very Glampire like move! Nikki endures and fights out of the chinlock, but her leg is still caught. Nikki turns things around to pull Asuka’s hair and chin! Asuka lets go and Nikki drags Asuka over now. Alexa tags in and helps Nikki put Asuka in the corner. They mug Asuka, and then SLAP her down! Alexa stomps a mudhole into Asuka, then tags Nikki back in. Asuka eggs them on in angry Japanese, but that gets her punches and pie-faces. Asuka fires up but Nikki throat chops to a wrenching neckbreaker! Cover, TWO!

Kairi and Paige shout for Asuka to fight, but Nikki has Asuka by her colorful hair. Nikki lifts Asuka for a big fast back suplex! Cover, TWO! Asuka still lives and this frustrates Nikki. Nikki drags Asuka over and throws body shots in the corner. Asuka shoves back to give forearms to Nikki and Alexa! Mule kick for Nikki, then a dodge! Nikki hurries to keep Asuka away, only to miss her forearm into a German Suplex! Both women are down but fans are rallying up! Asuka and Nikki crawl, hot tags to Alexa and Kairi! The Pirate Princess rallies on Raw’s tiny Goddess! Blockbuster! And another! Kiair whips but Alexa reverses, only to get a crossbody! Fans fire up with Kairi as she marches the plank! Kairi hits Nikki before giving Alexa the Sliding D! Tag to Asuka, and they get Nikki with an assisted code breaker! Sliding D Enziguri combo!

Asuka gets Alexa, ASUKA LOCK!! Alexa flails but slips around to a corner! TWO!! Asuka goes to a corner and Alexa runs in, ROUNDHOUSE! Tag to Kairi, and she climbs up high! But Nikki is there!

Raw presents a special contract signing edition of Miz TV!

The Hollywood A-Lister wants after the Show-Off at SummerSlam, and now things will be made official! The Miz will meet Dolph Ziggler, and have Shawn Michaels by his side, after the break!

Raw returns one more time, and Miz welcomes us to the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show. He requested to have this signing because after everything Ziggler has done and said, Miz wants to force Ziggler to show up at SummerSlam. But first, Miz welcomes the Heartbreak Kid! And yes, it is the real HBK walking out to his theme this time. Oh and, Ziggler. Ziggler walks out now, and he takes up a mic of his own. “You call me a pariah, but I’d rather be a pariah any day of the week doing what had to be done, than be one of you two ass-kissers sitting out here in the ring together.” Ziggler steals shows and carries this company, even when he wasn’t supposed to. he is the best thing in Pro-Wrestling since HBK lost his smile, and Miz lost his balls! They wanna talk legends!? There’s only one in the ring, and Ziggler’s it, brother!

So if Miz thinks for a second he can beat Ziggler, good luck. Because when Ziggler wins, he will finally get the respect and appreciation he deserves as a “living, breathing legend!” With that, Ziggler signs his part of the contract. Miz says what’s really amazing is that this is Ziggler’s newest M.O. He just calls people names. It didn’t work in the fifth grade, it won’t work now that Miz is a “grown ass man.” If Ziggler thinks he deserves something but doesn’t have it after a decade, it’s not the fans, it’s Ziggler! Miz and Ziggler will go at it next Monday on Raw! Ziggler is confused. Well, he should’ve read the fine print. Miz thought about it. He can have many future moments, but the guy Ziggler faces may not have many left. That contract isn’t for Ziggler VS Miz. It’s for Ziggler VS… Not HBK. It isn’t? The fans already sense it. IT’S GOLDBERG!

Ziggler turns around to see the icon walking down the ramp! Ziggler has been insulting Goldberg as much as he as anyone else, and so now he’ll have to eat his words! Goldberg gets in the ring as Ziggler gets out, so Goldberg picks up a mic. Goldberg also picks up the pen, to sign his half of the contract! And then as fans chant Goldberg’s name, he tells Ziggler, “Guess what, son? You’re next!” Ziggler is furious, but he turns around on the ramp, to get a SWEET CHIN MUSIC! HBK gets his shot in, will it only take one shot from Goldberg to shut Ziggler up once and for all?

 


 

My Thoughts:

An interesting Raw to say the least. That opening hour was solid with Samoa Joe trying to hijack things over the false accusations only for Becky’s appearance to quiet him down. That tag match to open was alright, but it was clearly to set Becky up for a newly Heel Natty’s attack. Trish didn’t do a thing, but I suppose that’s to save her in-ring return for SummerSlam. That’s fine, it keeps things unclear between her and Charlotte as far as the booking math. As for Natty and Becky, I feel like Becky has to win now with Natty going Heel and getting the better of her tonight. And while Thursday isn’t Monday, we do get to see the OBGYN skit for that WWE 24/7 Championship. I expected one thing but then we got another and I was still thoroughly entertained! And best of all, Truth has the belt again for the title’s third phase (as I consider it at least).

Then things started to get a little… typical for Raw. Lesnar beating Rollins up more, just for Rollins to vow he will win because wrestling is all he has, all this could’ve been done without Lesnar beating Rollins up, and with Rollins giving the same hurting but passionate promo in a video. I get booking The Architect as too brave for his own good, but because of the cliche, it just slows down the momentum from last week’s attack. Then Joe’s demand for an apology coming back around, not a good follow-up. Though I do appreciate a parking lot hit and run to emphasize this person wants to “end” Roman. Whoever this person is, we have an obvious match for him and Roman at SummerSlam, since SmackDown must surely reveal who this person is. Just not sure how well it can turn into a story past this.

Oh, Viking Raiders. If only Vince didn’t notice you on NXT. But wow, didn’t expect to not get Alexander VS McIntyre and to instead get Fiend attacking Angle! Maybe McIntyre VS Alexander is more of a Survivor Series story. The New Day VS OC without much hype before was just an obvious sign it’d end up a Six Man holla holla. The OC winning on TV is good for the Good Brothers, but perhaps something “controversial” happens so that Styles keeps the title against Ricochet. At the same time, is there going to be tag title unification? It feels like neither show is going to have contenders, at least not equally. SmackDown’s side still feels so lacking right now, and whether or not the Street Profits lose their NXT Tag titles at TakeOver, they’re clearly going to be on Raw. Unifying the titles just saves time on the shows in these uncertain roster times.

And speaking of, finally the WWE Women’s Tag titles are defended, and off the IIconics! Heyman did as good as he could in fixing Vince’s Mania mess, and at least now the champions have something going coming out of this. It was rather surprising for Fire & Desire to be the ones to eliminate the IIconics, but maybe that becomes a story for Survivor Series. And the elimination of Fire & Desire was a bit sloppy. There was apparently a miscue with Kairi and Sonya that just made things awkward, they should’ve been brawling in the background as Mandy tapped out. And then, I really enjoyed the back and forth of Alexa and Kairi. The idea of pointing out height was a fun little bit, and I was genuinely shocked that Alexa and Nikki won. But at the same time, there is a lot of potential in the build between Bliss-Cross and Kabuki Warriors.

Oh and if it wasn’t obvious from Ziggler constantly name-dropping Goldberg, now we know they’re having the SummerSlam match and not Miz. The news did leak but the leak didn’t even need to happen because it was constantly being set up for some point, and now we’re getting it here. The question isn’t if Goldberg wins, but how long Ziggler lasts. It certainly won’t be five minutes, that’s my guess.

My Score: 8.2/10

Best of the Super Juniors 31 B Block: KUSHIDA VS “Drilla” Dan Moloney!

The Timesplitter leads the block, but time could be running out. Plus, 44 Caliber is aiming for the kill, will he hit the mark? Or can Kushida avoid disaster and head Back to the Future?

[Due to scheduling conflicts, coverage will continue tomorrow]

 

Best of the Super Juniors 31 B Block: Taiji Ishimori VS Ninja Mack!

Francesco Akira’s withdrawal ended up giving points to Hiromu, Douki, Eagles & Sho, and that ended up bumping The Bone Soldier down a couple spots! Will he take his frustrations out on the American Shinobi? Or will the Mack Attack only add to his misery?

 

 

Best of the Super Juniors 31 A Block: El Desperado VS Clark Connors!

The Rogue Luchador has won two main events in a row, but he’s still only on par with 100 Proof. Desperado wants to be the Best of the Super Juniors so badly, he can almost taste it, but will there be No Chaser to go with it? Or can he make it three in a row overall to head for the top?

 

 

Best of the Super Juniors 31 A Block: TJP VS Blake Christian!

This is a tale of two tides turning. Being on the hotseat lit a fire under The Public Enemy while All Heat has cooled off. Can TJP keep this historic comeback going? Or will the GCW Champion end the Cinderella story right here?

 

 

Best of the Super Juniors 31 B Block: DOUKI VS SHO!

This one’s gonna be good! It was Wrestling Satsuma no Kuni when Japones Del Mal got his shot at the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, only for the Murder Machine to cheat him out of it. But now, Douki is ahead in the block and could do some serious damage with a win here! Will Douki earn both points and a golden ticket tonight? Or will Sho stack the deck so high it’ll reach the sky?

The Young Bucks speak.

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson want their own Elite security to get a good look at who they’re looking for. Nick then says, “Hey, Darby Allin, ya p*ick! You attacked The Elite unprovoked last week, so guess what? You’re barred this week.” Matt adds that in the interest of having the safest locker room in the business, sorry, no Darby allowed tonight. Matt tells the security to be very careful, Darby is resilient. He broke his foot, practically got Final Destination’d by a bus, and he’s still standing, and out for blood! Do NOT let this man in the building! What’re they doing still standing here? Get to your positions! And tuck your shirts in!

In walks Sonjay Dutt and he wants to commend these two for the great job they’ve been doing, and for knowing how to take care of problems. Darby won’t be an issue tonight. Last Saturday, they took care of two more problems in FTR thanks to The Righteous & Lance Archer. And tonight, it all comes to a head. Sonjay’s Indian Giant destroys the American Dragon. Matt says if Satnam beats Bryan, cool. But if he hurts Bryan, great. Alright, so long as the money’s in the envelope with a few rupees, because tonight, Satnam breaks Bryan like a pencil! HAHAHAHAHA! Sonjay heads out, Matt tells everyone to keep the energy up, next segment! Can he get some water? Thanks.

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

Bakersfield, California fires up as The Bang Bang Gang brings their gold to the ring in a little black wagon. Granted, they don’t need all nine belts, just the one set that represents the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Championships. Though, they do like to mix and match as they hold one each. Jay White gets the mic and hushes the crowd before saying, “Well, well, well, look at you! The greatest three man team in the game is here!” Fully Cocked Colten Gunn! Switchblade Jay White! And… Austin! THE Unified Trios Champions, the Bang Bang Gang! And White knows what they want. Guns up for the Bakersfield Gold Members~!

But y’know, on that note, White thinks there might be one very special little gold member out there walking around feeling confused, asking himself how he ended up in the situation he’s in. How he ended up burning int he spotlight at the feet of the Bang Bang Gang! That one little gold member is… Pac? Puck? Pock? Pack, but without K. Oh. Okay, okay, Pack. Let White tell him how you ended up here! You made three big mistakes! One: when the Bang Bang Gang is walking down the halls, you run, scatter, turn the other way. What’d Pac do? Looked at them with… that face.

Mistake two: When Bang Bang Gang handled Bang Bang Gang business in this ring with “Azucar” Rocky Romero, one little Bastard decided to stick his ugly bastard nose where it doesn’t belong. Mistake three and biggest of all, Pack, is questioning them. He asked, begged, pleaded for them to make him care, so they gave him what he asked for. But see as the- WAIT! Pac is on the tron! And he tells the Bang Bang Toy Guns that this is what he’s talking about! They warmed him up a bit. And he can’t even be made at them. Like they said, he provoked them first. But gentlemen, three on one? That’s not exactly fair now, is it?

So allow Pac to introduce them to his amigos. His hermanos! His LUCHA BROTHERS! The fans fire up as Penta El Zero Miedo, Rey Fenix y The Bastard, Pac, all stand as one! Death Triangle is reunited! White & The Gunns get ready, but Pac TACKLES White while the Lucha Bros DOUBLE SUPERKICK the Ass Boys! Pac throws adown fists, the others brawl, and the fans fire up! Pac ROCKS Colten, ROCKS Austin, but White knees low! White puts Pac in a corner but Pac dodges to stomp away! Death Triangle stomps away on the whole Bang Bang Gang! They then SUPERKICK everyone out! The fans are fired up but the Bang Bang Gang is in retreat!

Pac gets a mic to tell the boys, “You think you’re hard? Well this Sunday, Double or Nothing, AEW Unified Trios Championships! You think you’re hard? I guess we’ll find out.” Death Triangle wants gold again, will they take it from the Switchblade and his boys?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

The Learning Tree makes his way out, “Big Bill” Morrissey right behind him, because Jericho is joining commentary for what’s up next.

FTW Championship #1 Contender’s Triple Threat: Hook VS Katsuyori Shibata VS Bryan Keith!

While the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil wants payback on The Learning Tree, so does The Wrestler! They and The Bounty Hunter fought and won last Saturday on Collision, and now they all fight for a chance to go Double or Nothing with Jericho! Will wins big to then go after Jericho “For The World?”

The bell rings and Keith BOOTS Hook right down! Keith runs up on Shibata, Shibata dodges to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP int he corner! Hook storms up to fire hands on Keith! Shibata pushes Hook aside to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! Hook pushes Shibata, the rivals stare down, but Keith RAMS Hook into Shibata! Keith then fires forearms on Hook. Keith runs, but into a SAYANAGI! Hook shoots around, REDRUM, but Shibata gets Hook in a SLEEPER! Keith DOUBLE JAWBREAKERS free! All three men stagger to their feet, and Hook clinches Shibata for an EXPLODER! Shibata comes back to BELLY2BELLY Hook!

Keith gives Shibata an EXPLODER! Hook gives Keith an EXPLODER! Shibata hits an STO on Hook! All three men are down again and the fans fire up! Keith, Hook and Shibata slowly sit up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Shibata runs up on Keith, throws him down, and has a HEEL HOOK! Shibata endures, crawls back, and has the ROPEBREAK! Shibata doesn’t have to but he does let off given the hold won’t count for anything now. Shibata drags Keith back, steps through, and FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCKS! Keith fights it, but Shibata clamps it on tight! But then Hook throws down forearms on Shibata! Shibata lets Keith go, crawls to a corner, and Hook drags Shibata up. Hook throws knees into Shibata, then brings him out of the corner to TOSS him out of the ring! Hook then goes for Keith, but Keith wrenches to a HOOK KICK!

Hook falls, Keith goes to a corner, and Keith huffs and puffs. Keith drops a knee on Hook’s head, covers, TWO! Keith huffs ‘n’ puffs more, and he CLUBS Hook to ropes. Keith CHOPS, then follows Hook around the way. Keith CHOPS again, then clinches, but Hook fights the exploder! Hook slips around but now Keith fights the exploder! Keith fires down elbows, but Hook still lifts! Keith fires down more elbows, but Hook tries again! EXPLODER! Both men are down, the fans fire up, and Hook rises. Hook stalks Keith, but Keith avoids the crossface forearms! Hook turns around, Keith KNEES him down!

Keith drags Hook up, underhooks, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Keith hits the TIGER DRIVER! Cover, Shibata breaks it! The fans rally, Shibata kicks and bumps Keith off buckles. Shibata BOOTS Hook in a corner, then runs to BOOT Keith! Shibata rains down forearms on Keith, then runs to BOOT Hook! Shibata HYDRAULIC DROPKICKS Keith! Shibata drags Keith up for a HALF HATCH! Cover, Hook breaks it! Hook knees low, clinches, T BONE SUPLEX! Shibata goes to a corner, Hook grabs Keith. Hook clamps on the REDRUM! But Keith RAMS Hook into a corner! Hook goes up and he goes for a HANGING REDRUM!

Keith RIDING HEADBUTTS! The fans fire up with Keith and he goes up, reels Hook in, DIAMOND DUST! PENALTY KICK from Shibata! Shibata gets Keith up, fireman’s carries, and USHIGOROSHI! Shibata stares Jericho down before putting on the FIGURE FOUR, with HEEL HOOK!! Keith endures, Hook gets in! REDRUM on Keith!!! Keith endures double submissions, he TAPS!! Then who wins?!? The ref has the two men let off of Keith, and declares they BOTH win?!

Winners: Hook & Katsuyori Shibata, by submission (both challenge Chris Jericho for the title)

The fans don’t want a draw, they want Hook and Shibata to fight it out! But Jericho gets on the mic and says yeah, he agrees! Hi, Bakersfield! He just wants to get camera time, right? But Rick Knox, what an interesting call. Two winners, two contenders, makes his job a little harder at Double or Nothing. But such is life, huh? Just gotta say, Hook and Shibata, he’s proud of you both for everything they’ve picked up from The Learning Tree and the Jericho Vortex. But he’s gotta warn you, as the longest reigning For The World Champion in history at over 33 days, he’s just getting started.

So even though it’ll be the first-ever Triple Threat “For The World” Rules match, he’ll walk out of Vegas the winner. Thanks, everybody! But he’s not losing to anyone ever, okay? Thanks, guys! Tony Khan texts Tony Schiavone, and it is official! The first ever FTW Triple Threat, will going Double or Nothing only guarantee Jericho loses?

 

Konosuke Takeshita w/ Don Callis VS Matt Sydal!

The Alpha wants to be IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, but he’s only getting a Title Eliminator match at Double or Nothing. Will the Zen Assassin simply be used as a warm-up and a warning for Jon Moxley?

The bell rings, Takeshita knees Sydal low then CLUBS him down! Takeshita brings Sydal up to CLAW Sydal’s face, then lets off as the ref reprimands. Takeshita drags Sydal up, and throat chops him! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Takeshita deadlift suplexes Sydal for a BRAINBUSTER! Takeshita stands up, snarls, and he  stomps Sydal around. Takeshita gives taunting kicks as Sydal sits up, and then Takeshita stands him up. BLUE- RANA! Sydal dropkicks the legs out, then BASEMENT DDTS! Sydal hurries to the apron, then the corner! Sydal goes up, leaps over Takeshita, then keeps going, but into the BLUE THUNDER BOMB!

Takeshita and Callis agree, time to break Sydal! Takeshita stands Sydal up, winds up, ALPHA FOREARM! Cover, Takeshita wins!

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Takeshita made quick work out of Matt Sydal, but then offers a handshake, The Code of Honor if you will. Sydal accepts it, but then Takeshita ripcord deadlifts Sydal into a HIGH ANGLE GERMAN!! No honor, no respect, and the fans boo! But Callis loves it! Takeshita stomps away on Sydal, but then here comes Moxley! The Maniac was gonna be here either way, and Takeshita wants to know where he’s coming from! Moxley slips in from the crowd, has a mic, and he steps up to Takeshita. Then he DECKS Takeshita with the mic! The fans cheer Moxley on as he paces around. Moxley kneels and tells Takeshita he’ll see him at Double or Nothing.

Takeshita sent a message with his win over Sydal, Moxley just sent his response! Will this Title Eliminator turn into a slobberknocker?

 

The Young Bucks speak, again.

Nick tells Darby Allin, “you stupid idiot,” that they know he’s watching from somewhere in Bakersfield. They saw him on the travel list, but again, he is banned from the arena! The tech staff is given wanted posters of Darby just so they know, and Matt says it’s time to actually run this show. But sitting at gorilla, right in their spot, is Swerve Strickland! The Realest asks, “What up, turds?” Oh, sorry, is this one of their seats? Matt says it’s fine, he’s the champ, he can make himself at home. Good to see him, by the way. Also, has he seen Darby? He’s banned from the building. Swerve takes a copy of the poster, crumples it up, throws it away, and says no, he has not.

Anyway, hit his music, his match is up next. Matt says yes, of course. Someone do it! Is it this idiot’s job over here? Press the buttons! The music gets going, and Bakersfield is now “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” But will Nick Wayne simply be Christian Cage’s sacrificial pawn in this game he’s playing?

Swerve Strickland VS Nick Wayne!

The bell rings and Nick throws his shirt at Swerve. Swerve takes that shirt, rubs his junk on it, then throws it back. The two step up, the fans rally for Swerve, and then Nick bails out. Swerve is annoyed, storms out after Nick, but Nick slides back in. Swerve sighs, slides back in, but Nick slides back out. Nick plays cat ‘n’ mouse with Swerve as he again slides in just as Swerve slides out. Swerve feints the slide, and now he has Nick! The fans fire up as Swerve fires off body shots! Swerve whips Nick right into barriers! Nick sputters, Swerve says if Nick wants a father, Swerve will be that father. Swerve takes off his regular belt to SPANK Nick with it!

Swerve gives Nick a good lashing, Nick hobbles away, and the ref reprimands. But the fans want that “ONE MORE TIME!” So Swerve winds up and LASHES Nick’s butt! Nick falls over, Swerve puts his belt back on, and the fans chant, “Thank You, Swerve!” Swerve leaves Nick behind to uncover a crossbar! Swerve brings Nick over but Nick fights back! Nick body shots, but then Swerve back drops Nick into the ring! Swerve then steps in to dropkick Nick down! The fans cheer and Swerve pushes Nick around.

Swerve staggers up, Nick kick shim down! Nick puts Swerve on ropes to CHOKE him! The ref counts, Nick lets off at 4 and soaks up more heat.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Swerve CHOPS Nick, then UPPERCUTS in the corner! Swerve snapmare, gator rolls, and deadlift suplexes, but Nick knees free!

Swerve says, “I am sorry.” But then HOUSE CALL!! Cover, Swerve wins!

Kyle got caught by that change in flow, and he just faded to Black! But wait! The lights all turn red! Malakai looks around in confusion, but this can only mean one thing. BLOOD FROM ABOVE?! It’s like something outta Carrie! Malakai is not just drenched, he’s fumbling around from how slick the canvas is! And then, on the tron, walking down the steps… is EDGE! “Malakai. Malakai~! Up here. Be careful what you wish for.” Edge grins and he has fangs! “See you soon.” Is Malakai going to regret bringing out that side of The Rated R Superstar?

 

Toni Storm & Mariah May w/ Luther VS The Outcasts w/ Zak Knight!

The Leading Lady and her understudy have had just about enough of Saraya & Harley trying to troll there way to the spotlight, and now look to finally end this farce! But given she’s still parading around in Serena Deeb’s banner, will the AEW Women’s World Champion be ready for The Professor’s test this Sunday? Or will the madness truly go off the rails this close to Double or Nothing?

The teams sort out and Harley starts against Mariah, a partial rematch from last Saturday. The irony that Mariah’s Toni cosplay is also a Harley Quinn cosplay but Harley Cameron is in all black. The two tie up, Mariah waistlocks, but Harley reaches back, headlocks, and grinds. Mariah powers up and out, drops down, Harley rolls and kicks low! Harley clinches but Mariah ROCKS her! Mariah whips, Harley goes up and out, then ducks Mariah to RAM into her! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Mariah away, goes up and in, then talks trash on Storm. Harley runs but Mariah follows, trips Harley, then keeps moving to SHOTGUN!

Mariah smiles and the fans fire up as she paces around. Mariah gets Harley up, scoops, and SPIN-OUT SIDEWALK SLAMS! Then Mariah fireman’s carries, but Harley slips free to tag Saraya. Mariah waits on Saraya and the two circle. But then Saraya backs away to ropes for defense, she wants the REAL Toni Storm! The fans fire up, and Mariah tags Toni! The two former friends circle now, and Saraya ROCKS Storm! Storm ROCKS Saraya, repeat! The fans fire up as they go back and forth, and are definitely on Storm’s side. Saraya kicks low, whips, but Storm reverses and hits a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fists, then tags Mariah.

Storm scoop SLAMS Saraya, then Mariah offers herself up. Storm scoops Mariah to SLAM her onto Saraya! Cover, ONE! Saraya is tougher than that, but Mariah tags Storm back in. Mariah now scoops, but Storm is a bit sturdier. So Storm scoops Mariah to SLAM her on Saraya again! ELBOW DROP, cover, TWO! Tag back to Mariah, she brings Saraya up and fires forearms. Mariah snapmares Saraya, runs and KNEES Saraya down! Saraya flounders, has the ref check her, and Harley runs in to CLOBBER Mariah! Toni storms in but the ref stops her, completely missing the crazy one going after Mariah! Saraya has Harley slip away and she stomps Mariah now.

Saraya does jumping jacks to show off her cardio, and then she HEADBUTTS Mariah as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Saraya stalks Mariah to ropes, puts her through them, and then steps onto the apron to fire off knee after knee! The ref reprimands and counts, Saraya lets off, and then she steps back inside. Harley storms right up to AX KICK Mariah down! The ref reprimands and Saraya just shrugs. Saraya drags Mariah around, whips her to the corner, then tags in Harley. They mug Mariah, Harley stomps away, then stands her up. Harley digs her boot in, lets off at 4, and then Saraya CHOKES Mariah while Harley argues with the ref! Luther protests, Storm is furious, but the Outcasts get away with that. Harley covers, TWO!

Harley stays between Mariah and Storm and drags her up. Harley bumps Mariah off buckles, tags Saraya, and they mug Mariah some more. Saraya TOSSES Mariah out, storms out after her, then drags Mariah up to RAMS her into barriers! Saraya taunts the fans, soaks up the heat, and blows a mocking kiss to Storm. Saraya digs her boots into Mariah, the ref reprimands, but Saraya drags Mariah up and into the ring. Saraya keeps Mariah from Storm, tags in Harley, and Harley RAMS Mariah into the corner! Harley then brings Mariah around for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Harley argues the count as Dynamite returns to single picture,

The fans rally, Harley drags Mariah up, but Mariah ROCKS Harley! And ROCKS her again! And again, and again and again! The fans fire up as Mariah just hammers away! Harley shoves Mariah away, brings her around, then JAWBREAKER! Harley runs up, Mariah dodges, and DOUBLE FACEBUSTERS collide! Mariah crawls hot tag to Storm! Storm CLOBBERS Harley, BLASTS Saraya, then goes up and over Harley! Storm runs back at the corner, blocks Harley’s boots, and puts her in ropes for a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Saraya returns but into JAB after JAB! Saraya falls, Harley returns, but Storm HEADBUTTS!

The fans fire up as Storm poses! Storm then runs to SPLASH Harley in a corner! Harley sits down, Saraya runs in, but Storm drop toeholds Saraya into Harley’s hips! Storm laughs at them, then she drags Harley up for a SKY HIGH! Cover, but Saraya BOOTS it apart! Mariah returns, dodges the haymaker to HEADBUTT a la Storm! Mentor and protege help each other up, pose for a close up, then they each get an Outcast. “This is Awesome!” as they put Harley & Saraya up top! They each climb up, CLUB away, then coordinate. But Harley & Saraya each SMACK Storm & Mariah off buckles! STEREO SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMBS!! The Outcasts double cover, TWO!!!

Saraya & Harley coordinate now, they get Storm & Mariah in corners to stomp mudholes in! The ref counts, Saraya & Harley let off to coordinate again. They both storm back up for more, but Storm & Harley put a stop to that! They set those boots down, to plant some wet ones on their enemies! Consider their fates sealed with a kiss, because now we get STORM ZERO and MAYDAY!! Harley is then fed to a STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm & Mariah win!

Winners: Toni Storm & Mariah May, by pinfall

This dynamic duo dominates, and now they again adorn Storm with Deeb’s banner. But wait, Serena Deeb is here! She SMACKS Luther down with a chair!! Then she JAMS Mariah, and HEADBUTTS Storm! The fans are torn as Deeb grins. Deeb brings out a SHOE! HIGH HEEL TO THE FACE!! Deeb grins as she watches Storm crawl, then she picks the chair back up. Deeb uses the chair to take a seat on Storm’s back, and then pulls on a leg! FULL METAL HALF CRAB! Storm taps out, not that this is a legitimate hold in any way! The ref reprimands, other refs rush out to tell Deeb to stop, but Deeb only lets go when she says!

Deeb has just made Storm suffer, and she takes her banner back. Will she also take that AEW Women’s World Championship when she and Storm go Double or Nothing?

Bryan Danielson VS Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt!

The American Dragon always fights against corporate corruption, that’s why he’s standing up against The Elite alongside Team AEW this Sunday! But The EVPs have been doing everything they can to make Anarchy in the Arena a foregone conclusion. Will the One in a Billion be just the thing to ruin Double or Nothing? Or will Bryan prove everyone’s the same size when down on the ground?

As the two get in the ring, Satnam gets right in Bryan’s face. Well, Satnam’s chest does, as he’s quite literally head and shoulders above Bryan. Satnam goes to pie face Bryan but Bryan pushes that big hand away. The bell rings, the fans fire up with “YES! YES! YES!” and the two circle. Satnam puts Bryan in a corner, but Bryan dodges the chop to KCIK, KICK and KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to fire hands but Satnam shoves him away! Satnam BOOTS Bryan down and the fans boo. Satnam stands Bryan up to bump off buckles, then stalks him to another corner. Satnam winds up to CHOP!

Bryan sputters and falls over, and Satnam soaks up the heat. Satnam drags Bryan up, suplexes, and holds Bryan up! Then the SLAM! The fans boo more while Bryan flops out of the ring. Satnam goes out after him, then RAMS him into steel steps! Sonjay clears the desk of the drinks, the action figures, the hood, everything, but then the whole thing falls apart! Satnam kicks the steel steps aside, drags Bryan over. The fans tell Sonjay how he messed that one up, but Satnam still lifts Bryan. Bryan goes to the apron! Bryan KICKS Satnam, and KICKS and KICKS! Bryan gets space, runs up, and FLYING KNEES!

Satnam staggers but stays up, so Bryan resets! FLYING KNEE again! Satnam staggers and takes a seat in the corner of the barriers! Bryan runs in to DROPKICK Satnam down! The fans fire up and Bryan rises. The fans want that again, so Bryan runs back in, only for Satnam to get up and catch him! APRON CHOKE SLAM! Bryan writhes, Sonjay is all fired up, but the fans boo. Satnam shoves Bryan into the ring, Sonjay and the rest of Team Triple J applaud, then mockingly say “YES! YES! YES!” Satnam steps in for a cocky cover, TWO! Bryan is still in this, but Sonjay pulls at a buckle pad. Satnam YANKS it right off!

Satnam storms up on Bryan, drags him up but the ref won’t let him use the bare buckle! Sonjay argues with the ref, so Bryan LOW BLOWS Satnam! Now that Satnam’s cut down to size, Bryan runs and BUSAIKU KNEES!! Satnam even hits the bare buckle! Bryan keeps moving, but Satnam still grabs him! So Bryan KICKS at the legs! And CLAWS at the eyes! And KICKS at the chest! “YES! YES! YES!” Then BUZZSAW! Satnam stays up!? This is a sturdy tree! He CHOPS Bryan, and then he looms over Bryan. Satnam hauls Bryan up, suplexes, but Bryan slips free! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Satnam drops to his knees as Bryan keeps going!

Bryan then shifts to the omoplata, and puts on the biggest LEBELL LOCK ever!!! Satnam endures, TRIPLE J ATTACKS!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by disqualification

The fans boo but The Bucks said themselves that this wasn’t about getting the win but about inflicting damage! Jeff Jarrett runs the ref off while Lehtal drags Bryan up. Jarrett gets his guitar, but Bryan slips free! Jarrett avoids hitting Lethal, but then Bryan dodge shim again! BUSAIKU KNEE for Lethal! BUSAIKU KNEE for Jarrett! Sonjay tries to sneak in, but Bryan has the guitar! Sonjay clubs Bryan, but it was weak! Bryan swings, Sonjay dodges, and Satnam PUNCHES through the guitar!! The mugging continues, then Satnam hits a SPLASH in the corner! The fans boo, but now The Bucks make their way out here!

Matthew & Nicholas step out of the Codyvator and they have that envelope! That’s the payment for this hit job on Bryan! Jarrett CHOKES Bryan, then rains down fists! Sonjay receives the payment, and it looks good to him. The Bucks have Jarrett stand down, he did great. They shake hands, then The Bucks get to stomp Bryan! The fans boo as the EVPs drag Bryan to center, sit him up, and give him an E V P- NO! Bryan avoids the knees and they hit each other! Bryan KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan fires hands on Matt, “YES! YES! YES!” But here comes The Rainmaker! Bryan is ready for Okada, but then JACK PERRY ATTACKS FROM BEHIND!

The fans boo as Scapegoat takes down Bryan, and now The Elite all mug him! Ripcord, RAINMAKER LARIAT!! This isn’t over, either, as they drag Bryan out of the ring and up the ramp! And surprise! There’s a table waiting! But wait, who is this pulling up to the arena? It’s DRABY ALLIN! He fist bumps Tony Khan, who drove him here!! TK can travel now!? Darby storms into the ring, armed with some kind of airsoft gun! The Elite is freaking out, but here he comes! That’s not an airsoft gun, that’s a FLAMETHROWER!! The Elite freaks out even more, and then Bryan finally gets to fight back! He fires off KICKS on Nick, then TOSSES Nick down through the table!!

The fans are going nuts, and Anarchy in the Arena is only going to be crazier! Will nothing stop the revolution against The Elite’s “revolution?”
