PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the SummerSlam Kickoff Show!

Join Jonathon Coachman, Charly Caruso, Beth Phoenix and David Otunga as they recap and predict all the action of tonight!

JBL and Sam Roberts are ringside, too!

The once and former “wrestling god” and Sam are both excited for a certain legend returning, in Goldberg! The Miz wanted at Dolph Ziggler, but given Ziggler’s constant disrespect, Miz took a step back to let a living legend go after the Show-Off. No, it wasn’t Shawn Michaels, it’s GOLDBERG! Is Ziggler next? Or is he going to finally end nostalgia’s influence on the WWE Universe?

 

Miz joins the panel!

#TorontoIsAwesome, but how awesome was it for Miz to swerve Ziggler like that? Miz always has something up his sleeve. Ziggler was talking a lot of smack, but now he’ll have his chance on this grand stage to back it all up. And whatever is left of Ziggler will have to face Miz tomorrow on Raw! Miz had this idea as far back as Ziggler insulting Goldberg on that Miz TV. Miz wants Ziggler to finally back his words up, if it should be you, make it you! Otherwise, Ziggler isn’t going to win tonight or tomorrow. Ziggler’s bitterness only shows Miz that he’s not motivated enough to work harder and do more than a legend. And if that’s not enough, make the fans beg for more.

Miz hangs around a little longer to talk the WWE World Championship, Kofi Kingston, finally getting to right a wrong against Randy Orton. The Viper doesn’t regret holding Kofi back, and doesn’t regret calling Kofi “stupid.” Beth remembers Kofi going through that, and knows this will only motivate Kofi more. Miz feels that like with Ziggler, everyone needs to take responsibility for their own careers. Orton is at the best he’s ever been, being this motivated and ready. But at the same time, this is the Orton Miz wants to see Kofi finally beat. Otunga even feels Kofi has matured thanks to those years of waiting, and that has only made Kofi more determined. Coach throws things to Sam and JBL, and Sam is just as pumped for this as anyone else. But JBL sees things as just making excuses. Kofi did need this time to mature, because now he’s a global phenomenon! But Orton himself is amazing, so JBL is sure this is going to be a match of modern day icons. Who comes away with this having proven their side right?

 

Backstage interview with Charlotte Flair.

The Queen is preparing for her showdown with Trish Stratus, but might still be stinging from that literal slap to the face. Charlotte says Trish is revising history to say that women of her era started the (R)Evolution. But no, the legitimate athletes like Charlotte did that. Trish wants that #OneMoreMatch, pining for the glory days. But Trish will bow down to the Queen of ALL Eras! WOO~!

 

Mick Foley joins the panel!

As one of the targets of The Fiend, what does he feel are Finn Balor’s chances? Well his feel good moment got ruined by Bray Wyatt’s theft of the Mandible Claw that made Mick feel helpless. Mick already made the claw more powerful with Mr. Socko, but the true terror is the nerve hold focusing on nerves under the tongue and under the chin. From the one time The Fiend did that to him, Mick knew he’d mastered it. Mick gives some insight to multiple personas. It keeps the opponent off balance, and more worried about survival than victory. Is Finn going to be worried more about surviving Bray than beating him tonight?

 

Backstage interview with Kevin Owens.

Even considering his title matches, is tonight really the biggest night in his career? He won’t down play those amazing moments, but tonight is definitely important because he fights to stay in the WWE. Why isn’t Shane McMahon putting up equal ante? Because he IS a McMahon. Shane does what he wants, says what he wants, and has no integrity no matter what. But that doesn’t matter. Kevin gets Shane in the ring. Kevin putting his career on the line was the bait needed to bring Shane into the ring so that Kevin can vent years of frustration and beat the hell out of Shane. The PPV may be called SummerSlam, but this is going to be the Kevin Owens Show. Will Kevin crush Shane so bad he can’t wrestle again? Or is this gamble going to backfire?

 

The OC find Finn Balor!

Long time no see, Good Brothers. They’re all golden, that’s good. They’ve been running Raw and showing this is their world. And this will continue tonight when the Phenomenal Styles finishes Ricochet once and for all! But hey, Little Brother Balor has The Fiend! Styles has been getting “good luck” wishes, but Finn might need them instead. Now, now, Styles. Luck has nothing to do with this. Finn is ready for the mind games. Yeah, yeah, but look what Bray did to Foley and Angle! So the OC is offering their brother a little bit of help. Shake with a Too Sweet. No? Well he’s got time to change his mind. What will Finn do knowing he has Bray’s darkest dark side coming for him?

 

Kickoff Show – WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Drew Gulak VS Oney Lorcan!

Perhaps the hardest hitting match tonight, the Boston Brawler won this opportunity through a spectacular Six Pack Challenge! But will he be able to pry the gold from the grip of the gritty Gulak? Or will he only feel the pain and punishment promised by the Philly Stretcher?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we truly kickoff the action!

Gulak shotgun dropkicks Oney right away! Gulak headlocks and wrenches a wrist, but Oney rolls and trips Gulak to a cover. ONE and Gulak headlock takedowns. Oney headscissors but Gulak pops out, to narrowly avoid a chop! Fans cheer the stand-off as the two circle. Gulak and Oney tie up, and Oney powers Gulak back. Gulak turns things around to a waistlock but Oney slips out to another takedown. Oney turns Gulak over for a facelock but Gulak slips out to a hammerlock. Fans rally as Oney resists, but Gulak still gets him in a recliner cover. TWO, but Gulak wrenches the hammerlock harder. Oney rolls and gets up but Gulak wrenches the shoulder. Oney powers Gulak to the corner, but the ropebreak comes at 4. Oney CHOPS away on Gulak’s chest! Gulak gets to another corner but Oney whips him corner to corner and follows close with a clothesline. Gulak returns the favor! Then he scoop slams Oney, legs into ropes! Cover, TWO! Oney catches his breath while Gulak glares down at him.

We go picture in picture as Gulak twists Oney into a modified abdominal stretch. He gets that recliner cover again, TWO! Gulak has Oney’s leg trapped, then pulls the other in a modified Crab! Oney endures, even as Gulak claws his head! Oney turns and hammers Gulak off him! We return to single picture as Gulak headbutts Oney down. Cover, TWO! Gulak chinlocks Oney down to the mat, but Oney endures again. Fans build to a rally as Oney fights his way up. Oney pries at the hold but Gulak just locks it up tighter.

Cover, TWO! But the Fury of 205 Live fires up. Gulak bails out but Oney follows. Oney CHOPS Gulak against the barriers, and they end up by the announce desks.

Oney CHOPS more, then brings Gulak to the ring. Oney puts Gulak in but Gulak gets him in the GuLOCK! Oney endures, rolls, but Gulak traps an arm! So Oney uses a leg for the ropebreak! Gulak lets go at 4, and Oney gasps for air. Oney drags himself up, and he goes at Gulak for the half nelson! Gulak slips out but Oney also escapes. Gulak fights off the half nelson, but misses with the lariat. Oney dodges, but then they both take each other down with clotheslines! Fans fire up while both men are down. A standnig count begins, and the two stir at 4. Gulak sits up at 5, followed by Oney at 6. They two stand at 7, and now they brawl! Oney SLAPS, Gulak kicks, and they start going wild with hands! Gulak rocks Oney then starts slapping away on his head and back! But Oney hulks up! Only for Gulak to slap him down! Oney keeps fighting, but into another GuLock! But rolls over! TWO!!

Oney keeps on Gulak with that jaw grip! Oney slaps, slaps and SLAPS! Then EuroUppers! Gulak wobbles but gets another! Oney runs, Half ‘n’ Half standing switch, but Oney blasts Gulak with another EuroUpper! Fans fire up with Oney’s fury, but Gulakg ets to the apron. Gulak pulls the skirt in as Oney drags Gulak back. Oney stomps the hand so Gulak finally lets go. But as the ref handles the skirt, Gulak throat punches Oney! Torture rack, Cyclone Crash! Gulak wins!

Winner: Drew Gulak, by pinfall; still WWE Cruiserweight Champion

Gulak survives Oney’s fury with a cheap shot. Will Oney fight his way back to another chance? Or does Gulak move on to new competition?

 

Jerry Lawler and Booker T tag in for the second hour panel!

Both Hall of Fame Kings join in, but they’re joined by Drake Maverick. He wants to know about the real story: the WWE 24/7 Championship, and how it is affecting Maverick’s life. Has anyone seen R-Truth? Maverick vows to the fans that he will not leave Toronto without getting that title back! He vows to bring that title home to Renee Michelle, and they can finally consummate the marriage! If only Maverick looked in front of the desk, because Truth and Carmella are chilling with the title and some snacks.

Truth and Carmella come out when the coast is clear, and the block is hot! Want some popcorn, King? No, thanks. The Fabulous Truth were even here last night for TakeOver. But wait, here comes Maverick and a referee! They have a FOOD FIGHT! And then Maverick chases Truth, only for Mella to trip him! Off they go! The chase is on, but will it be Maverick’s night before SummerSlam is done?

 

Backstage interview with Natalya!

The Queen of Harts returns home to Canada, confused that Becky Lynch says she’s both a good girl but also a traitor for training Ronda Rousey. But instead of dragging her name through the mud, Becky is going to be getting dragged around in the Sharpshooter. And then Natty will have that Raw Women’s Championship.

 

Kickoff Show – Buddy Murphy VS Apollo Crews!

The Aussie Juggernaut isn’t in the best mood or best condition after getting roughed up by a riled up Roman Reigns. Will he still be able to overcome the rising star in this last-minute match?

The bell rings, and Murphy hits Apollo with a knee trigger! Cover, TWO! Apollo survives that sudden attack, but Murphy throws him into buckles. Murphy stomps a Melbourne mudhole and has fans on his side. Murphy walks the mudhole dry tot hen stomp more. He snapmares and kicks Crews quick, covers, TWO! Murphy drives his knee in then kicks again, cover, TWO! Murphy keeps Crews down with a chinlock, but fans rally up. Apollo fights up and powers Murphy to a corner, then arm-drags him off. Things speed up and the two collide with crossbodies! Both men are reeling from the rib damage but fans rally up. Murphy walks into an enziguri then gets haymakers from Apollo. Apollo mule kicks, boots and clotheslines Murphy down! Apollo kips up and fans fire up as he dropkicks Murhpy!

Murphy rebounds, but slips out of the slam into an arm-drag. Murphy boots Apollo back, then hops up, into Apollo’s Samoan Drop! Standing moonsault, TWO!

Apollo runs into another knee trigger! Murphy pump-handles but Apollo victory rolls! TWO, and Apollo tosses Murphy out! Apollo slingshots, mule kicks, but his moonsault misses! Murphy sends him into steel steps! Then runs to FLY! Air Aussie takes Apollo down! Toronto cheers as Murphy puts Apollo back in. But Rowan attacks!?

Winner: Buddy Murphy, by disqualification

Big Red won’t let Murphy just claim who attacked Roman Reigns! He throws Murphy all around ringside, into barriers over and over! Murphy slowly stands, and Rowan runs him over with the flying body check! Rowan drags Murphy’s body around, to powerbomb him into a post!! “Keep my name out of your mouth!!” Daniel Bryan simply watches as Rowan leaves Murphy down in a writhing heap. Is this only confirmation that they were the ones going after Roman?

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias.

Toronto is actually glad to have The Drifter here! And he asks them, “Who Wants to Walk With Elias?!” Toronto does! Elias has been here all week, singing autographs and doing private performances. Toronto is special. He wrote a song, so please silence phones, hold applauds and… Well fans anticipate the third part, “shut your mouths!” The fans cheer instead. Elias begins playing, “You know how I know I’m in Toronto? You people think you’re the center of the universe. You know how I know I’m in Toronto? Because I’ve been here a week, and I want ot leave here in a hearse.” You know how you know you’re n Toronto? These are the people who don’t give up. You know how you know you’re in Toronto? The only thing Elias doesn’t see is a Stanley Cup. You know how you know you’re in Toronto? Elias ain’t got nothing good to say. You know how you know you’re in Toronto? He wants to join Kawhi in LA.

“You think you know me?” And thrash drums means… EDGE!! Toronto’s Rated R Superstar is here!! And he joins Elias in the ring to a standing ovation. And he SPEARS Elias! That’ll shut him up. Will Elias think twice before running his mouth in Canada?

 

Kickoff Show – WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross VS The IIconics!

The Goddess and Loony Lass only just won these titles in a Fatal 4 Way on Raw, but now they’ll prove they’re worthy of the belts by taking on the former champions 2v2! Will #BlissCross go to infinity and beyond? Or will the future be IIconic again?

Peyton Royce and Billie Kay have microphones as they head to the ring. “What would SummerSlam be without the longest reigning WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions~?” It wouldn’t be anything. But it’s okay, they’re here. And the Toy Story rejects never pinned them for the titles! So now they’ll take back what is theirs! Because they are still the future, and the future is still #IICONIC! Strike the pose. The teams sort out and we begin with Alexa and Billie.

Alexa and Billie tie up and Billie headlocks. Alexa stomps Billie’s feet to turn the headlock around. Billie powers out then pulls hair, so Alexa trips Billie! Alexa has her Buzz laser pose!

It seems for Alexa and Nikki, they have a friend in each other. Will they keep this reign going through Raw’s advertised match with Asuka and Kairi?

 

Welcome to the North.

The biggest party of the Summer. The struggle, the sacrifice, and this is just the beginning. This will not be easy. Nothing that matters ever is. These once-in-a-lifetime moments are what you need to grab hold onto and never let go. But who will hold onto their titles? Who will hold onto their legacies? And who will show the world who they are?

 

Raw Women’s Championship Submission Match: Becky Lynch VS Natalya!

The Man and the Queen of Harts used to be good friends. But differences over this title tracing all the way back to Ronda Rousey has caused a rift between them. Now the claws are out and the fire is lit, who makes the other give up in a battle of Disarm-Her and Sharpshooter?

This opener turned up the heat, but it was Becky who survived the flames! Will The Man continue her reign as Summer gives way to Fall?

 

Backstage interview with Trish Stratus!

Toronto’s own Six-Time Women’s Champion put her passion into that slap. How is she feeling about having fans, friends and family in the audience? Nervous, excited, but not at all afraid. Her light shines brightest under the spotlight. The hardest part has been waiting for this match to happen. Charlotte Flair acts like the women of today are that much better than the previous generations. Pioneers seem to be taken for granted these days. Charlotte will see how lucky she is to be in this generation and not Trish’s. Trish will prove to everyone that not even the Queen could walk a mile in the boots of the Queen of Queens.

 

Goldberg VS Dolph Ziggler!

The Show-Off has shown very little respect for the legends that have “limped out” to the ring. Ziggler wants to put the nostalgia out of its misery, but will he be the one left in the past?

Before Goldberg makes his entrance, Ziggler grabs a mic to speak. “You are looking at the best thing that could happen to this show. You are looking at the best thing that could happen to WWE. You are ALL looking at the best damn thing that has ever happened to pro-wrestling!” We’ve all seen legends come and go, but “ol’ DZ” is still here stealing the show! Ziggler wouldn’t be surprised if Goldberg didn’t show up tonight. He doesn’t really “show up” for matches. And Goldberg Fears Ziggler! Ziggler DARES- Well, Goldberg IS here, and he makes his entrance now. Fans echo his name as he walks the halls, and as he comes through the pyro! Goldberg hits the ring, and we begin!

“GOLD~BERG!” echoes out in Toronto as the two circle. Ziggler and Goldberg get face to face, but Ziggler backs up, to SUPERKICK Goldberg down! Cover, ONE! Ziggler wants Goldberg to get up, he does, SUPERKICK again! Cover, ONE! Ziggler is still fired up, but he gets a SPEAR! Goldberg says that was one. He looms over Ziggler as Ziggler flounders and writhes. Goldberg brings Ziggler up and brings him in, for the suplex… and JACKHAMMER! Cover, Goldberg wins!

Winner: Goldberg, by pinfall

And that’s all the icon needed to teach Ziggler a lesson! Will Ziggler think twice before running his mouth again?

Guess not, because Ziggler trash talks Goldberg, saying Goldberg doesn’t have the guts to actually fight him. Goldberg marches back to the ring as Ziggler flounders back to a corner. Fans cheer Goldberg on as he gets back in the ring. Ziggler drags himself up, but Goldberg is ready. Ziggler heads over, and gets another SPEAR! Is Ziggler done trying to prove a point?

Nevermind, Ziggler’s talking again. “Anybody can get lucky twice!” Ziggler knows Goldberg doesn’t have the balls, and never did. It’s why he was a joke in this business and Ziggler’s the best! “I will never be defeated! I will never stay down! I’m the best thing going today-” Goldberg returns! Ziggler’s mouth may not stay down, but Goldberg swats the mic away and has to haul him to his feet. Goldberg pats Ziggler on the back, to then SPEAR him again! Is the third time the charm for shutting Ziggler up?

 

The New Day check on Kofi Kingston.

Kofi reps the Raptors, as Big E frames it as Viper VS “Oh So Black Mamba!” The Raptors have a good luck charm for Kofi, and it’s the man who “wants all the dip on his chip.” It’s DRAKE! Wait, no, that’s Drake Maverick. Well, close enough, right? Maverick is ready for some sick rhymes. But also where is Truth? That was clearly a lie. No one is appeased, this is a waste of time, Maverick has more important things to do. But he’s keeping the unicorn and the chains. Well that’s fine. But in seriousness, this is a decade in the making! Kofi will show Orton he failed to hold Kofi back! Kofi proves beyond a shadow of a doubt NOTHING holds him down! The New Day is FIRED UP! But will the Viper put the flames out with just one RKO?

 

WWE United States Championship: AJ Styles w/ The OC VS Ricochet!

The Phenomenal One wanted the Machine Gun and Doc Gallows to get their edge back, but they helped him get his back, too. It all started with slaps, then escalated to ambushes and sneak attacks! But now, Styles and Ricochet go one more time, can the One and Only regain the title?

Wait, in the foreign correspondent tables, the British table… “Shania Dwayne” and “D’Wayne Gretski” look familiar… And Drake Maverick comes looking for Truth! By the time he reaches the British table, Dwayne and D’Wayne are gone!

Back to the match at hand, introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we begin this battle of WWE (DC) Titans!

Shane takes a moment to say something. “Ladies and gentlemen, to ensure that this is a fair contest, and this is called right down the line, allow me to please introduce to you the special guest enforcer,” ELIAS!

WWE World Championship: Kofi Kingston VS Randy Orton!

AWWWWWW~ Toronto~! This rivalry comes full circle from roughly 10 years ago. Back then, The Viper was just The Legend Killer, and he thought the not-Jamaican superstar was “stupid” for thinking he could compete at a world title level. But now, nothing is going to hold #Kofimania back! However, will he still be stopped by the three most dangerous letters in pro-wrestling today?

The introductions are made while Kofi and Orton jaw at each other, the belt is raised, and we begin this long-time-coming match-up!

Orton pulls Kofi against the ropes, pulling on his hair. The ref counts but Orton lets up at 4. Orton drags Kofi up to EuroUpper him out of the ring.

Orton then goes out to fetch Kofi, and whip him at steel steps! But Kofi leaps over to leap back with more ax handles! The ring count starts again and Kofi kicks Orton around.

Kofi clubs away on Orton’s back, and Orton drops down. Kofi punches Orton away, and leaps for a tornado DDT! Both men are down but Kofi crawls for a cover, TWO! Fans build to a rally and the two men stand. Kofi CHOPS Orton off his feet! And again! Kofi dropkicks Orton down, but he keeps moving. Leaping lariat!

But Orton blocks the Trouble in Paradise to the back2backbreaker, a classic move! Cover, TWO! Orton grows annoyed as Kofi survives.

Kofi goes to the apron, but Orton smirks as he walks over. Orton mocks the New Day claps, then drags Kofi through the ropes. Kofi knows this move, though, and tosses Orton out! Kofi hurries to a corner, climbs up high, and TRUST FALLS! He takes Orton out, but doesn’t stay down! Kofi drags Orton into the ring, then heads up top again. Orton stands and Kofi leaps, crossbody hits! Cover, TWO! Kofi feels how close he was, but he’s still not done. Kofi drags Orton up but Orton shoves him away. Kofi spins out but the kick is blocked!

Orton smiles and laughs even though he hasn’t made the cover. Kofi rolls to the apron and onto the floor, and now Orton isn’t laughing.

Finn Balor VS “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt!

The Extraordinary Man has his own inner Demon, but it seems that the Eater of Worlds was hiding one of his own. Firefly Fun House was a surreal experience, but the terror Bray has put into legends and superstars is real. Can Finn stare fear in the eye and survive? Or will he be the Fiend’s first in-ring victim?

Speaking of Firefly Fun House, “LET. HIM. IN!” The lights go down, and then a lantern is inside the mouth of a disembodied Bray Wyatt head!? Because The Fiend has shed the old new Face of Fear for an even more frightening one! Finn is at a loss for words, as that puts even his Demon’s entrance to shame. But he works up the courage to get back in the ring, and this fight finally begins!

Finn is wary of the Fiend, but the Fiend grabs him first! The Fiend headbutts then stomps Finn, then finally takes off his jacket. The Fiend whips and runs Finn over with a headbutt!

And shotgun dropkick! Finn fires off furious kicks, but the Fiend shoves him away. Finn trips Fiend up for double stomps! Finn aims again, but The Fiend is up, to get another shotgun dropkick! The Fiend flops down and Finn climbs up, COUP DE- MANDIBLE CLAW!! The Fiend smothers Finn into the mat and makes it a cover, The Fiend wins!

Winner: The Fiend, by pinfall

Finn may be extraordinary, but not even that is enough for Bray’s new form. And then The Fiend teleports to the stage! Is this only the beginning of something truly wicked?

Fans can’t help but feel “That was Awesome!” However, Finn would disagree being on the other end of that debut. Will Finn be back to match monster with monster? Or does he need time to recover, both physically and mentally?

 

WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman VS Seth Rollins!

The Architect used an ingenious plan at WrestleMania 35 to take the title, but it infuriated The Beast. The Beast would have a plan of his own when he hijacked the Men’s Money in the Bank match. And after some mix-ups, some bluffs and some threats, the Beast in the Bank would cash-in at Extreme Rules to take the title back. But apparently, that wasn’t enough for Lesnar to feel he taught Rollins a lesson. German Suplexes, F5’s onto chairs and then onto a stretcher’s frame, Lesnar would not leave Rollins be until his ribs were in horrible shape. Can the Beastslayer overcome and #BurnItDown? Or will Toronto forever be THE Suplex City?

Introductions are made, with Heyman of course taking the duties of introducing the “Seth-Stomping, Rib-Breaking, Ultimate Conquering Sultan of SummerSlam, YOUR reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion, BRRROCK! LLLESNARRR!” With that, the belt is raised, and we finally begin the main event!

Lesnar and Rollins circle, and of course Rollins guards his ribs. But even then, Lesnar kicks him there and rams his shoulder in! Lesnar then hauls Rollins corner to corner to ram him into buckles! He knees Rollins’ ribs HARD, and lets him hit the mat. Lesnar throws his shoulders in more, but lets up at 4. Rollins SUPERKICKS! But then he runs into a German, only to land on his feet?! CURB STOMP!! Cover, TWO!! Lesnar almost lost right there! Lesnar bails out while Rollins and Heyman are both shocked. Rollins gest to the apron, runs and knees Lesnar down! Rollins keeps moving as Lesnar hurries back in. Rollins aims and SUPERKICKS, into a German! But he again lands on his feet! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK! CURB- No, fireman’s, F5!! But Lesnar goes the other way of Rollins and they’re on opposite sides of the ring. Fans already feel “This is Awesome!”

Lesnar pulls at the rib tape, and uses it to swing and throw Rollins to a corner! Lesnar stomps Rollins and says it’s “Punishment Time, B*tch!” Lesnar throws Rollins with a German Suplex, and this time Rollins lands on his shoulders! But Lesnar holds on, for another German Suplex! And then he drags Rollins up by his hair, just to give him a third German! Rollins bails out but Lesnar won’t leave him be. He throws Rollins with another German Suplex! Lesnar takes his time bringing Rollins back up and into the ring. Rollins flounders but Lesnar is right on him. Lesnar laughs as he waistlocks and Germans again! Rollins bails out again, but Lesnar still stalks him. Lesnar brings Rollins up, but Rollins shoves him into the post! And again!

Rollins hurries to get Lesnar into the ring, then takes aim. Rollins springboards, flying knee hits! But Rollins knows this won’t be enough, so he climbs again. Flying- GERMAN! Lesnar let Rollins fly into a corner again! Both men are down as Lesnar catches his breath and shakes out the cobwebs. Fans duel as Lesnar goes bare knuckle. He stomps and snap suplexes Rollins! Rollins gasps for air given those bad ribs, but it’s only going to get worse. Lesnar rams Rollins into the corner, then brings him out for a rear bearhug! Rollins endures the squeeze, reaches for ropes, but Lesnar just clubs him back down! Lesnar has Rollins on the ropes and chokes him. The ref counts and Lesnar lets up at 4 to toss Rollins down. Heyman mocks Rollins’ pain while Lesnar looms over him again.

Lesnar drags Rollins up to tackle him into a corner! Lesnar gets a running start, but only gets post! Rollins grits his teeth as he runs, to dropkick Lesnar down to the announce desk! But Rollins keeps moving, to DIVE! He topples Lesnar down, but that’s not enough! Another DIVE and another hit! Rollins wants it again, and DIVES, to be caught! And rammed into a post! Both men are down, Rollins’ plan having backfired! Lesnar stands first and fans build to a rally. Lesnar clears off the Spanish announce desk! But he turns into a SUPERKICK! Lesnar ends up on the desk, and Rollins hurries up top! Rollins LEAPS to FROG SPLASH Lesnar through the table!! Both men are down and fans are losing their minds! The referee checks on both men, but they’re somehow okay to continue.

Both men get up and drag themselves to the ring. The referee hasn’t counted, so both men are safe. Rollins gets up top again, to Frog Splash onto Lesnar again! But he bounces off, and takes aim from a corner! Rollins wants Lesnar to sit up just enough, CURB STOMP AGAIN! Cover, TWO!?! Lesnar still lives?! Heyman is relieved while Rollins is shocked. But Rollins still has fire inside, and he stomps. Fans chant “Burn It Down!” for Rollins as he aims again. Rollins runs, but into a fierman’s! F5- NO! SUPERKICK! A THIRD CURB STOMP!! Cover, Rollins WINS!!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall; NEW WWE Universal Champion

The Beastslayer hath slain the Beast AGAIN! And this time, with NO controversy! He didn’t need to low blow, he didn’t need to misdirect. He did it with broken freakin’ ribs, because he is Seth Freakin’ Rollins! Does this finally end things between him and Brock Lesnar?

 


 

My Thoughts:

For the trepidation and fears going into SummerSlam, this SummerSlam actually did great! I was glad we got some WWE 24/7 Championship shenanigans here and there, though not as much as I expected. The Cruiserweight Championship was good, but still not quite a 205 Live level match. If only they could find a way to put this title in the main show again. It seems they felt the need to shoe-horn in Murphy VS Crews even though Roman Reigns ended up nowhere on the show, which is somewhat a shame. But it does further some things, like Rowan going after Murphy but Bryan not really disapproving. I feel like this is the end of Murphy’s part in the story, and then things can build for Roman, Rowan and Bryan on the way to at least Clash of Champions in September, with or without Face Samoa Joe getting involved.

They definitely shoe-horned the Women’s Tag titles in, and it didn’t help they also advertised a Women’s Tag title match for Raw already. But the match itself was still a lot of fun, so it was okay for it to just be a formality against IIconics. I was really surprised to see the Raw Women’s Championship Submission Match start the main show, and I thought for a moment it was because Natty was actually going to win to make Toronto explode. The reaction would’ve been a great reason why, but naturally, Becky toughs it out and wins. Fans still love Becky so it didn’t sour anything per se, and it was such a great match anyhow, only diehards for Natty would’ve seen this as a bad thing. Also great to see Bret Hart have a cameo, it seems presenting AEW’s title didn’t hurt his standings with Vince.

The Goldberg-Ziggler match was great because it wasn’t just what we expected it to be, it was so over-the-top that it was actually hilarious. The match itself was classic Goldberg squashing his opponent, so that’s fun. But then Ziggler being so punch drunk (or rather Spear Drunk) that he kept egging Goldberg on to get more Spears, that was all amazing. But at the same time, this really needs to be the last time for Goldberg, because this kind of stuff is all he can really do anymore. On the flip side, WOW that Flair-Stratus match. THAT is how you use a legend/part-timer, because she let the younger star go over. Charlotte and Trish were so good in this match, so it’s great that Charlotte goes over to elevate her legacy. Bayley VS Ember was a great match, too, and it really worked for Bayley to intercept Ember’s finisher with her own. Chances are, Bayley circles back to Charlotte, but now it’ll be the Charlotte that beat Trish to give us an amazing match for Clash of Champions, regardless of who wins.

Ricochet looked great in the Nightwing cosplay, and he had another great match with Styles. It works out fine that the OC interfered and all that, because that counter of Phoenix Splash into Styles Clash was just so awesome. I’m not sure if Ricochet gets another chance at Clash where Gallows & Anderson are busy with their own match, or we start fresh with the other superstars. I would love to see Cesaro go Face for this match, or Strowman since he’s strong enough to overcome numbers. And while the OC offered Finn help, I was hoping he was going to surprise us with Demon. But no, still keeping Demon in the back pocket. All-white clad Balor puts up a good fight against The Fiend, who had an insanely good (and creepy) entrance, but Fiend wins because he just had to win. Fiend VS Demon at/in Hell in a Cell will be great, if Fiend racks up a win streak leading into that.

I’m actually surprised Shane didn’t stack the deck more against Kevin, but they still did a great job with how they handled it. Kevin gets to beat down Elias and get away with cheating Shane, but I feel like this will only escalate towards Survivor Series and Team Shane VS Team Kevin. I thought it would be Team Roman, but now it’ll be Kevin, since Roman has Bryan and Rowan. Kofi VS Orton was pretty good, but it did seem odd it was a Double Count-Out draw. I suppose it keeps both men strong and we can get a Clash of Champs rematch, but it was great to see Kofi tee off on Orton. I wonder if their CoC rematch is No DQ so we can get more of this.

And then we all worried what Lesnar VS Rollins was going to be this time, but WOW! They somehow handled this exactly right! All the Heel Heat Lesnar had built up really pays off for how Rollins was evading and countering, but of course Rollins still gets thrown around plenty. Something about it worked out the way it needed to, especially the announce desk splash spot, and this might have just corrected the awkward course Rollins was going. Hopefully with Heyman working Raw now, this momentum stays with Rollins so that fans care again. I would think Lesnar, mostly in character, wouldn’t want a non-Big-4 match, so maybe we can truly, truly start fresh for Rollins with any number of superstars who have just been waiting for a chance.

My Score: 8.7/10

Buddy Matthews VS ???

The House of Black’s Aussie Juggernaut opens Collision on Revolution Eve, but wait! Mark Briscoe drags Buddy out of the ring! The fans fire up but no, Mark is NOT Buddy’s opponent!

The fans fire up as Mark props that up against railing. But Buddy BOOTS Mark! And he SMACKS Mark off the steps! Buddy grabs a chair, but Mark kicks him low! Mark takes that chair and JAMS Buddy up with it! And SMACKS Buddy on the back! Mark tosses the chair into the ring, but Buddy knees low!

Buddy and Mark scrap, Mark ROCKS Buddy and slides into the ring. Mark then WRECKS Buddy with a dropkick! Buddy hits railing but Mark sets up the chair! Mark builds speed again and uses the chair to FLY! Direct hit, and through the table! The fans are thunderous as Mark rises up and high-fives the front row! Mark shoves Buddy into the ring, and he finds that spike! Mark storms into the ring with it, but Buddy asks for mercy! The fans say spoke him, but here comes Brody King!

Brody choke grips Mark, but Mark LOW BLOWS him! Mark gets that chair again and he SMACKS away on Brody! Malakai runs up, but Mark uses the chair as a shield against the kicks!

Mark presses a button, and the flames from Buddy’s entrance literally fire up! Buddy almost gets burned! Security rushes in but Mark keeps throwing Buddy around! Mark shoves Buddy to where the flamethrower is!! But then security swarms him before he can get the switch! The House regroups and retreats before facing disaster! Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the three stare down. The fans cheer for “CERO! MIEDO!” and Penta reminds Dante that they still owe each other. So listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Dante but then Keith shoves Penta. Penta takes the glove off! The fans fire up as Penta calls to Abrahantes, but then Keith HEADBUTTS Penta down! Then Dante SUPERKICKS Keith down! Penta gets up to SUPERKICK Dante! Penta KICKS Dante in a leg, KICKS Keith in a leg, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Penta falls out, Keith DECKS Dante! Things get moving, Dante drops, hurdles then rolls back to headscissor! Then he dodges Keith to JUMP KNEE!

Dante hobbles, Penta whips him to a corner but Dante reverses. Dante runs up, into a SUPERKICK! Penta then pops Dante up in the corner, SUPERKICK and BACKSTABBER! The fans fire up as Dante bails out and Penta takes aim. Penta builds speed but Keith is back to BOOT him! Fans are torn but Keith just reels Penta in. Keith underhooks but Penta wrenches out. Keith BOOTS the lariat away to then EXPLODER! Keith covers, TWO! Penta stays in this but also goes out of the ring.

They go forearm for forearm, Keith CHOPS and then DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up so Dante DOUBLE CROSSBODIES them down! The fans fire up and Dante DIVES! Direct hit into Keith, then Dante runs to DIVE on Penta! The fans fire up again and Dante is feeling it as Collision goes picture in picture.

Dante drags Penta up, DECKS him with a forearm, then goes around the way. The fans fire up with Dante, but Keith BOOTS him down! Keith drags Dante up, CHOPS him, and Dante falls over. Keith turns around into Penta’s SUPERKICK! Penta drags Keith up, SMACKS him off the steps, then drags Dante up. Penta puts Dante against railing, hooks a leg around it, and KICKS! Penta assures the ref, he hit thigh and knee, not groin. Penta stands Keith up but Keith CLAWS Penta’s eyes! The ref reprimands but can’t do much more than that, and Keith KICKS Dante! Keith brings Dante up and into the ring.

Penta chicken wings Keith! Dante WRECKS Keith with a dropkick! But then Penta grabs Dante to spin him around on the apron, and KICK him back into the ring! The fans fire up with “CERO! MIEDO!” while Penta brings Keith into the ring. Penta keeps the chant going but Keith sits up with grit teeth. Keith seethes but Penta brings Dante up first. Collision returns to single picture as Penta CHOPS Dante! Dante CHOPS Penta! Then Dante CHOPS Keith! Keith CHOPS Dante and Penta! Penta SUPERKICKS Dante, Dante SUPERKICKS Keith, so Keith SUPERKICKS Penta! Then Keith and Penta DOUBLE SUPERKICK Dante!

Penta then kicks Keith low, reels him in, “CERO! MIEDO!” But Keith RAMS Penta into buckles! Keith fires off CHOPS and forearms! Penta shoves Keith away, but Keith comes back, only to be put up top. Keith HEADBUTTS Penta, reels him in, DIAMOND- NO, Penta stops that and Dante SUPERKICKS Keith! Penta uses Keith for a step, DESTROYER on Dante! Cover, Keith breaks it!! Keith saves Dante but also himself in this match, but “CERO! MIEDO!” continues to echo out in Huntsville. Keith storms up, but Penta KICKS and KICKS and “CERO! MIEDO!” Springboard, but into a BOOT!

Cover, Dante wins!!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Revolution)

A huge win for Angelo Dorado, he is the final man in the All-Star Scramble! Will Dante use his speed and agility to snatch that golden ticket to the top?

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Does Cassidy stand a chance of retaining the International Championship when he can barely stand on his own two feet? All this and more will be answered tomorrow night at Revolution!


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
