NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Drew Gulak VS Lio Rush!

The Man of the Hour finally gets his chance at this championship, but he’ll have to defy the Law of 205 Live! Will Gulak #FeelTheRush? Or will he grind the Living Piece of Gold down with pain and punishment?

Lio clubs Gulak back to the apron then down to the floor. Lio adjusts but Gulak is up fast to BOOT Lio off, onto security! Lio crashes and burns while NXT goes picture in picture.

The referee checks on Lio but he’s somehow okay to continue. Gulak gets in the ring and lets the ring count begin. The count passes 5 before Lio stirs. Gulak watches from a perch on the corner.

Winner: Lio Rush, by pinfall; NEW NXT Cruiserweight Champion

The Man of the Hour’s time has finally come! Full Sail cheers as Lio fought the Law and beat the Law! Will the Living Piece of Gold’s net worth only grow from here?

William Regal appears to officially put the belt around Lio’s waist, but Gulak barges back into the ring? Gulak takes the belt from them both, so that he can officially give it to the new champion. Lio seems to have won Gulak’s respect on top of the title. Will this seal of approval help Lio truly take over where Gulak left off?


NXT looks back on the legacy of Finn Balor in Full Sail!

The Prince came to NXT and not only revolutionized himself, but he revolutionized action on this brand. Whether Extraordinary Man or Demon, he became the longest reigning NXT Champion along the way. But now that he’s back, will he revolutionize his legacy during this Era of the Undisputed?


Tegan Nox is back!

She’s already made a splash in NXT UK, but she’s ready to show NXT USA what the Shiniest Wizard looks like. She’ll make her NXT USA debut next week, but she’s also supporting her Team Kick Captain, Dakota Kai! Will Team Kick kick things up a notch as 2019 heads for the home stretch?


Rhea Ripley VS Aliyah w/ Vanessa Borne!

The Mosh Pit Kid is back in Full Sail, because she’s not done making her brutality international! Will she show #BorneBougie what it’s like to ride the Riptide?

The bell rings and Rhea circles with Aliyah. They tie up and Rhea shoves Aliyah with such force, Aliyah ends up in the corner! Aliyah uses the ropes as defense and the ref keeps Rhea back. Rhea still whips Aliyah corner to corner but Aliyah dodges to hop on for a screeching sleeper hold! Rhea throws Aliyah off then stomps her down! Rhea suplexes but Aliyah slips out to CLAW Rhea on the back! That only angers Rhea! Rhea reels Aliyah in for a short lariat, then another, then whips her for a BIG dropkick!

She holds onto the Cloverleaf, Aliyah taps, Rhea wins!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by submission

Rhea rips through Aliyah, but she dares Vanessa to give it a go! Rhea grabs a mic and says, “There is no doubt that Shayna Baszler is the most dominant NXT Women’s Champion in history. She has tapped, napped or snapped every one of her competitors. But not me! Shayna, I’m coming for ya.” The Ripper is ready to rip the Queen of Spades from her throne, but when and where will we see it all happen?


NXT is under construction?

A duo walks out, ready with hard hats and tool belts. This new team looks ready to remodel Full Sail, but who are they? The lights come up, and the two ladies step aside to reveal BREEZANGO! Tyler Breeze and Fandango are ready to go to work, though Prince Pretty has to bring the Lord of the Dance away from the construction crew. Will Breeze & Fandango rebuild themselves while tearing down their opponents?

Breezango VS Ever-Rise!

Speaking of tearing down, the French Canadian connection is being dragged out by Jaxson Ryker! The Gunner dumps those two on the stage, and here come the rest of the Forgotten Sons! It looks like Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake want to rearrange the match card! Will they be #ForgottenNoMore after tonight?

Breezango VS The Forgotten Sons!

The teams sort out, and Cutler starts against Breeze. The two go at each other and Breeze throws hands! Breeze hits Blake as he runs in, but Cutler kicks low. Cutler whips but Breeze kicks back.

Ryker gets away with throwing Breeze into a post!

Fandango sees what happened, and FLIES out at Ryker! But Blake DIVES onto Fandango! Blake puts Fandango in, Cutler tags in, and the Sons combine for a powerbomb to knees! Cutler hops back up while Blake dragon sleepers Fandango, Memory Remains!! Cover, The Forgotten Sons win!

Winners: The Forgotten Sons, Cutler pinning

The savage trio will not be stopped until the fans have no choice but to know who they are! Will they one day put themselves into the history books with gold?


NXT looks closer at the Limitless One.

Keith Lee always looks to be better than he was the day before. Win-loss records aside, his most recent match with Dominik Dijakovic was “a battle of wills.” It was a battle of hunger. And it was for the future. Lee is hungrier, has more willpower, and wants it more. When they meet one more time, Dijakovic will have to #BaskInHisGlory!


Boa VS Cameron Grimes!

Beijing baller meets Carolina brawler as the Breakout stars continue to work towards the top. Will Boa at least last longer against the #CountryConfident technical savage than Sean Maluta did?

The bell rings, Grimes spots something on stage and both Boa and the ref looks over. Grimes gives Boa the double stomps! But there really is something coming down the ramp, and it’s the North Ireland Nightmare, Killian Dain! Grimes covers, Grimes wins! Then Grimes gets out faster than his win!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

Dain is eyeing Grimes, perhaps on to his next target? He goes after Boa instead! VADER BOMB! Big Damo wants to crush Boa, another Vader Bomb! Dain drags Boa out to then bring him to commentary, for a torture rack TOSS! Boa crashes onto the desk, and Dain shouts, “This is MY NXT!” Fans boo as Dain leaves Boa for dead. Who else will become prey for the Beast of Belfast?


Damien Priest enjoys the spotlight.

As he arrives in his sports car, he welcomes the cameras being all on him. “That’s the reason why I laid out Pete Dunne.” The Archer of Infamy did in fact blindside the Bruiserweight, who made a name for himself throughout all of NXT, USA and UK combined. But that name is just a bull’s eye, and Damien took his shot. He will #LiveForever at Dunne’s expense, but will he soon pay the price?


Isaiah “Swerve” Scott VS Roderick Strong!

The Undisputed Era’s North American Champion returns to action against a man who has evolved many times throughout his wrestling career. The Savior of the Backbreaker doesn’t seem to sweat Swerve, nor Velveteen Dream’s issued challenge. Will Strong learn otherwise tonight?

Haymakers, CHOPS, and then Strong knees low. Strong lifts Swerve for a pendulum backbreaker! Fans cheer this great exchange as both men slowly rise. Strong elbows Swerve right in the head, then kicks him down. Swerve gets to a corner but Strong CHOPS more. Swerve shoves but Strong forearms. They brawl again and Swerve gets an advantage. Strong hits low to then whip Swerve, but Swerve reverses and clotheslines Strong in the back!

Strong goes down, Swerve slingshots and somersaults to jump, but Strong catches him! Cradling backbreaker! Swerve writhes while Strong catches his breath. Fans duel as Strong drags Swerve up. Strong CHOPS Swerve on ropes, then puts him in a corner. Strong climbs up to rain down rights and gets 8. Swerve haymakers back!

Cover, TWO! Strong keeps on Swerve with a grounded cobra clutch! NXT returns to a single picture, and Swerve fights his way up. Swerve elbows out of the hold but Strong anchor s a leg! Swerve kicks Strong away, but Strong comes back to reel him in. Swerve DECKS Strong with that right!

Fans rally up as Strong and Swerve stand. Swerve rallies on Strong with clotheslines, then a jawbreaker! European Uppercut in the corner, then second rope elbow drop to Strong’s shoulders! Fans fire up with Swerve as he starts kicking. But here come the rest of the Undisputed Era! Strong hops up but Swerve kicks out his legs, to SUPERKICK and draping DDT! Cover, TWO!!

The two brawl, but Swerve sweeps the legs to mule kick! Strong is in an apron Tree of Woe, Swerve slingshots out for KILLSHOT STOMPS!!

The Era are furious but fans are loving this! Swerve puts Strong in, heads back in but the Era distracts as they lurk. Strong hits a jumping knee! Then the PSYCHO KNEE! Suplex, END OF HEARTACHE! But that’s not all, Strong makes Swerve suffer with the Stronghold! Fans boo but Swerve taps, Strong wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by submission

The Undisputed Era keeps all four pillars strong and are rolling through NXT’s new phase. Cole grabs a mic while they celebrate, to congratulate Swerve on the effort. Cole will admit, Swerve’s good, just not near the level of “Ol’ Roddy Strong.” But that’s what Cole loves about NXT: the best of the best come here to see how they measure up to the Undisputed Era. That’s why Finn Balor’s back. That’s why Ciampa’s back. They want to fulfill some “unrealistic dream” that they’ll be the ones to dethrone Adam Cole. “Guess what? That is never going to happen!” But wait, Velveteen Dream appears on the titantron, because he heard someone say, “Dream.” The spotlight shines on the Era, and here comes the Experience! Dream is on the new NXT balcony to speak to the Era.

“The reality is, Undisputed Era, some of you are great.” But Roddy Strong needs to allow the Dream to show him the reality. Strong is doing a Shawn Michaels Playgirl cover?! In two weeks, Strong will experience the Experience once again in a title rematch! And when Dream strips Strong of that North American Championship, “the world will see why you just don’t measure up.” The belt disappears and there’s a tiny, tiny censor bar! The Era is incensed, Strong is ready to rip into Dream, but here comes CIAMPA! And with his old friend, the crutch! Ciampa heads for the Era in the ring while Dream watches. As the song says, “No one will survive!” Ciampa also brings a chair! The Era retreats, but will they be able to run and hide for much longer?

Ciampa takes a seat and picks up the mic the Era left behind. “Goldie, Daddy’s home.” Fans echo “Daddy’s Home!” for Ciampa, but when and where will the Psycho Killer get back what he never truly lost?


NXT reviews what led to Time Splitter VS Ring General!

Imperium looked to invade NXT USA from the UK, but they did it by interfering with Kushida’s business. Kushida fought them all off, and would get a win over the soldiers, but Walter would attack Kushida directly! Now it is a dream match of global proportions!


NXT shares what happened backstage during the break.

Cathy Kelly was waiting to interview Ciampa, but instead got Angel Garza. Garza says the most handsome superstar in NXT is more deserving of air time. Ciampa walks by and Cathy still wants her interview, but Garza laughs. Garza trash talks in Spanish, but Ciampa DECKS him! Cathy asks what Garza said, but Ciampa had no idea. Will everyone new to NXT realize why no one messes with the Blackheart?


Dakota Kai VS Bianca Belair!

The Team Captain is ready to kick butt, but will she be able to beat the EST who is becoming one of the hungriest sueprstars in the Women’s Division?

The bell rings and Bianca ties up with Dakota. They go around and Bianca puts Dakota in a corner. Bianca pie faces Dakota then throws her down face first. Bianca claps back but Dakota slaps back! Bianca whips, Dakota goes up and over, but Bianca catches her! Bianca squats but Dakota slips out to trip her up! Now Dakota claps back, and even flap flaps!

Bianca hip tosses Dakota then runs her over! Cover, TWO! Bianca keeps her cool and smirks as she pushes Dakota around. Bianca grabs Dakota’s hair and scoops her, then does more squats before she slams Dakota down. Bianca stands on Dakota but Dakota kicks out quick. Bianca puts Dakota on the ropes to then push her around. Dakota small packages, TWO! Dakota tilt-o-whirls into a gutbuster! Cover, TWO! Bianca grows frustrated but she’s in control while NXT goes to break.

TWO, and Dakota tilt-o-whirls around to then dodge and BOOT! Bianca forearms, Dakota rebounds, but her boot misses! Torture rack, KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Despite Dakota’s determination, it was still Bianca’s win! Bianca grabs herself a mic to say, “So hold up.” She heard what Rhea Ripley said about beating Baszler. “Girl, uh-uh.” Bianca doesn’t care if Rhea was the first NXT UK Women’s Champion. Anyone who wants after Shayna has to go through the EST! Will Bianca make herself the hardest mountain to climb even before someone challenges the champ?


NXT now takes a closer look at the Colossus.

Dominik Dijakovic sees the parallels between him and Lee. It is as if they were meant to fight forever. They bring the best out of each other, but Dijakovic knows Lee has his limits. He has studied, plotted, and prepared. This fourth rematch might be their final. Will Dijakovic #FeastHisEyes on a victory?


NXT looks at Finn Balor’s WWE main roster run.

From the WWE Draft in 2016 making him a Top 5 pick, to becoming the inaugural WWE Universal Champion, the Extraordinary Man lived up to that nickname. Balor Club is fOreVER, but will he make it even greater than that with this return home?


Pete Dunne speaks.

“You want my thoughts on Damien Priest?” When Dunne first arrived in the WWE, Triple H himself encouraged him to make a name for himself. Dunne gets what Damien’s doing. But he won’t let Damien make a name of himself of the Bruiserweight’s back. The longest reigning and most dominant champion in modern WWE history, Dunne will not back down from a fight. The Archer of Infamy won’t be able to shoot his bow with broken fingers. Dunne and Damien face off in the ring next week!



The Super Junior and the Austrian Anomaly are both undefeated since joining WWE and NXT! But only one can stand alone as THE undefeated! Who loses the 0 in the loss column in this international dream match that seemed impossible until now?

The bell rings and fans are dueling already. Walter and Kushida circle and tie up, and Walter headlock tosses Kushida away! Kushida comes back and kicks, but Walter stays up.

The United Kingdom Champion is still undefeated! But this was as close as anyone has come to defeating Imperium’s leader. Speaking of, Wolfe, Aichner and Barthel appear on the stage to celebrate and congratulate. Will Imperium soon rule over all that is NXT?


Breaking news!

Cathy Kelly has word from William Regal on big matches in the coming weeks. First, Ciampa makes his in-ring return against Angel Garza over that scuffle in the back, that is for October 16th. And in two weeks, October 23rd, Velveteen Dream gets his North American Championship rematch against Roderick Strong! NXT keeps on producing blockbusters, but who comes out of these matches with all the shine of the spotlight?



My Thoughts:

A pretty great episode here, even with less gold than last week on the line. Opening with the now NXT Cruiserweight Championship was a pretty great move, it gives that match plenty of time to breathe, and the results plenty of time to carry. The match was great, and it’s pretty telling of how Lio Rush has redeemed himself backstage to get the title here. It was also great for Gulak to give him that nod of respect, though I do imagine this all means 205 Live is done for. It was fun while it lasted, but the Cruiserweights will get the treatment they deserved as far as match time and placement. I just hope they don’t abandon the things 205 Live was doing, namely building up guys like Oney Lorcan and Humberto Carrillo. Carrillo and Lio can have an incredible match with all the speed and agility between the two. One thing I’m also hoping for is that the belt is redesigned. I never had anything against the shape or color, but being NXT now, I imagine the strap should at least go gold instead of platinum/silver.

Ripley did great in squashing Aliyah, and Dakota VS Bianca was a really great match. I didn’t expect Bianca to win, but maybe Dakota and Tegan can shift gears as far as NXT USA goes and try for WWE Women’s Tag titles? Team Kick VS Kabuki Warriors would make for a great match. As for Bianca calling out Rhea for calling out Shayna, Bianca VS Rhea will make for a great #1 contender’s match that will surely establish Rhea even more, given how strong Bianca has been booked. And when it comes to Rhea VS Baszler, of course Rhea needs to win. Baszler has had her run, and if it isn’t ending for the sake of underdog Candice LeRae, then it should end for the sake of giving Rhea a historic accomplishment of having been both NXT US and UK Women’s Champion in her career.

Grimes gets another fast win. Despite him being the runner-up in the Breakout Tournament, Grimes has gotten a bit more TV time than Jordan Myles. Meanwhile, Dain is moving on while still being destructive, beating up poor Boa. I would think Dain is after Grimes to go savage against savage, but who knows at this point. Speaking of savages, I actually liked how Ever-Rise was savagely beaten off camera for Ryker to drag out like sacks of potatoes. Forgotten Sons VS construction worker Breezango was a really good match, and it keeps the rivalry going if the Forgotten Sons win here. These two teams will surely keep fighting in the tag team midcard while things are figured out with the titles. Good to hear we’re getting more North American Championship stuff, too. Strong VS Swerve was so good, and Strong VS Dream II will be incredible in two weeks. Next week’s rubber match of Lee VS Dijakovic will be incredible, too, and could easily go either way.

NXT did a lot of work to remind everyone who Finn Balor is, since they seem to assume many fans watching are at least after Balor’s time in NXT. Ciampa also gets great stuff tonight with his simply put promo staking his claim at the belt. Ciampa VS Garza should be a good return for the former champ, and who knows what Finn does on his end. We’re at least getting Cole VS Ciampa, and who knows if Finn gets involved or is right after. Kushida VS Walter was borderline a title match in itself! It wasn’t quite TakeOver: Cardiff, Walter VS Bate, but it was as close as you could get on network television. For half a second, I thought Kushida would win and get himself a UK Championship match in the future, but there are still plans on the NXT UK side that need to play out. Walter stays strong and Kushida takes his first loss, but I would think at some point, Kushida will go after Walter again. Perhaps things on both brands steer towards WarGames III using the WarGames match for a crossover and it’s Imperium VS Team Kushida.

My Score: 9/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (12/1/23)

SmackDown hears voices!



The Viper is here for The Bloodline!

He returned at WarGames, he returned to Monday Night Raw, and now, The Apex Predator, Randy Orton, returns to Friday Night SmackDown! Will he be able to strike at The Bloodline tonight?


  • Pete Dunne VS Bobby Lashley w/ The Street Profits; Lashley wins.
  • Kevin Owens VS Grayson Waller; wins.
  • Bianca Belair w/ Charlotte Flair & Shotzi VS Kairi Sane w/ DMG CTRL; wins.


Bianca Belair is here!

Brooklyn cheers The EST as she skips to the ring, her team victorious against Damage Control in WarGames! After a recap package, fans chant for Bianca and she gets the mic to say, “Man, it is so cool to be in one of the best boroughs in one of the greatEST cities in the world, Brooklyn!” The fans cheer that! Bianca says DMG CTRL really tried to take them out, but her team did what needed to be done. So shout out to Becky Lynch for coming through, showing up and showing out. Shout out to Shotzi for her guts and passion. And shoutout to Charlotte Flair for being a bigger person and making that call to Becky.

“Now while it feels great to be standing in this ring and celebrating that W from WarGames, my war with DMG CTRL, it ain’t over~! Cuz Iyo Sky, I’m still coming for you, cuz I want my title back!” Fans also cheer that. But speaking of Iyo, here she comes! The Evil Genius leads DMG CTRL out, though where’s Bayley? That aside, Dakota Kai is the one to tell Bianca, “It’s really great how uh, you can get all of these people to cheer for you.” The fans boo her but Dakota tells them to shut up! Dakota says just earlier, Iyo was saying how gross it is here in Brooklyn! It smells! Who would want to live here?!

DMG CTRL slide into the ring, and Dakota says Iyo was also saying that Bianca is in way over her head, dude. Iyo already beat Bianca twice. So… if Bianca wants to get yet another shot, she’ll have to go through all of DMG CTRL. Well that ain’t nothing new. So who wants it first, huh? But wait! Here come Charlotte & Shotzi to back Bianca up! Fans cheer as Charlotte says “Ladies~…! Bianca isn’t the only one coming for you. And I’d love to go through all of DMG CTRL.” Shotzi says it seems to her that there’s enough DMG CTRL to go around. They rush in, and the brawl is on! Fans fire up but Iyo TOSSES Bianca and helps Asuka against Charlotte!

Shotzi and Kairi brawl in a corner, Bianca returns, Charlotte BOOTS Asuka way while Bianca RAMS Iyo into a corner! Bianca stomps Iyo down, Charlotte helps Shotzi with Kairi, and Charlotte sets Kairi up for Shotzi’s BOOT! Iyo ends up isolated, and Bianca hits a SPINEBUSTER! Iyo scrambles out, DMG CTRL regroups, are their days on top numbered?


DMG CTRL regroups backstage.

And Bayley is confused as to what’s going on. Iyo angrily asks where Bayley was but Bayley says no one told her they were going out there! Maybe if she knew, things would’ve been different! The joshi talk in Japanese, Dakota cools it off. What matters is that Kairi is facing Bianca tonight. No one knows Bianca better than Bayley so Kairi would appreciate the help. Kairi says yes, they’re “tomodachi <friends>,” that’d be appreciated. Bayley says okay, but are they really Bayley’s friends?


Pete Dunne VS Bobby Lashley w/ The Street Profits!

With Sheamus recovering from injury and Ridge Holland just ditching him last week, The Bruiserweight is all alone against The All Mighty! Will Dunne stand a chance against the overwhelming strength of Bobby Lashley?

SmackDown returns and Lashley makes his entrance, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins by his side. But before the bell, Lashley gets a mic to say “Hey, listen, kid. When I told you to make a name for yourself…” The fans chant “BOBBY! BOBBY!” and Lashley says that’s a name. Does Dunne know what Lashley can do to him? Lashley will break Dunne into pieces! Is Dunne ready for that? Dunne SLAPS Lashley! Fans fire up, Lashley grins, and the bell rings. Dunne then BOOTS Lashley! And BOOTS! And fires off furious fists! Lashley carries Dunne to then TOSS him! Dunne flounders but also snarls. Dunne swipes at the Profits, but Lashley run sin to CLOBBER him!

Lashley whips Dunne hard into buckles, then storms around. The Profits high-five Lashley and Brooklyn is behind him as he stands Dunne up for haymakers! Lashley smothers Dunne in the corner, lets off to whip corner to corner, then storms up on Dunne. Lashley digs hands into Dunne’s face, the ref counts and Lashley lets off. Lashley runs in but Dunne BOOTS again! Dunne runs up to DROPKICK Lashley out of the ring! Fans are torn as Dunne goes out to FLYING KNEE! Lashley staggers back, Dunne sets up to MOONSAULT! Down goes Lashley and Dunne hurries back up! Dunne ARIHARA MOONSAULTS! Down goes Lashley and fans fire up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Lashley clotheslines Dunne in a corner! Lashley then brings Dunne around to snap suplex! Dunne writhes, Lashley paces around him and the fans cheer. Lashley drags Dunne up, suplexes again, and this time he holds Dunne up! Dunne throws knees, gets free, and he runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Lashley hits a MILE HIGH SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up again and Lashley drags Dunne up. Lashley TOSSES Dunne out, storms out after him, and then drags Dunne up again. Fans cheer as Lashley fireman’s carries Dunne, to then POST Dunne! The Profits say this is an extended Black Friday!

Lashley puts Dunne in, Dunne crawls away but Lashley aims. Lashley runs in, but Dunne sends the Spear into the POST! Lashley staggers back, the Profits coach him up, but Dunne GAMANGIRIS! Dunne runs up to ENZIGURI! Lashley ends up in a corner, Dunne GAMANGIRIS again! And again! Dunne KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then pushes Lashley out so he can go up. Dunne DOUBLE STOMPS an arm! Dunne bends the fingers, isolates the arm, and STOMPS the arm! Lashley grits his teeth but Dunne reels him in. ASAI DDT! Cover, TWO! Lashley is tougher than that but Dunne keep son him with HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!

But Lashley fights up! Fireman’s carry, then an adjustment, for the OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Lashley is annoyed. Ford says yeah, Dunne’s got heart, but that’s about it. Lashley hauls Dunne up but Dunne SLAPS him! Lashley LARIATS Dunne inside out! Lashley then drags Dunne up, MILE HIGH- ENZIGURI! Dunne gets up, Lashley SPEARS him back down!! Cover, Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by pinfall

The Bruiserweight put up a fight, but Lashley is still Lashley. Will The All Mighty soon head for a title as we head for the New Year?

2023 World Tag League, Block A: The Gates of Agony VS EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi w/ The House of Torture!

Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona finally got on the board, beating the War Dogs. Meanwhile, the House of Torture is falling apart as they just keep losing! Will the Gates slam shut on them, too? Or will the King of Darkness & Tokyo Pimp find a way to lie, cheat and steal a win once again?

Wait, the Gates are coming out wearing House of Torture shirts? And then they wait for the House to make their entrance? Is this a sign that they’ve become allies? Dick Togo, Sho, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, and of course Evil & Yujiro all come out together and they seem pretty chummy with the Gates. All seven go to the ring now, and this is a rather interesting development. Did Prince Nana approve this deal? Everyone shakes hands and “put one out” so clearly there’s something to this. They even pose for photos! But then Kaun & Liona quickly and quietly TOSS Sho & Kanemaru, then they TOSS Dick! Yujiro & Evil don’t understand!

Kaun & Liona throw forearms, the bell rings and the Gates whip Evil & Yujiro. Yujiro & Evil hold ropes to then BOOT in return! But they run into double scoop SLAMS! The Gates tear off the House of Torture shirts, and Liona even wipes his butt with it! Evil & Yujiro are in opposite corners, Kaun runs in to ELBOW Yujiro and Liona SPLASHES Evil! Then the Gates trade, ELBOW for Evil and SPLASH for Yujiro! And back the other way! Fans fire up as the Gates tricked the tricksters! They fire each other up, and Kaun sends Liona into SPLASH Evil! The fans rally up, the Gates run in to SPLASH SANDWICH Evil!

Liona stands Evil back up, he and Kaun OPEN- NO, Yujiro saves Evil and they bail out. The House falls back, daring the Gates to come out after them. The Gates storm out after them, but going all the way to the entrance is suspicious. Sho & Kanemaru attack from behind with chairs! Fans boo as Dick distracts the ref so that the House can mug the Gates! Sho CHOKES Liona with his chair, but Liona bench presses it away! Yujiro helps Sho while Evil drags Kaun around, to RAM into the timekeeper’s area! Poor Abe-san! The fans boo but Evil gets on the mic to basically say this is what they get for messing with the House!

Yujiro SMACKS Liona off the timekeeper’s table, but Liona roars! So Yujiro POSTS Liona to knock him down! Evil drags Kaun up, puts him in the ring, and fans rally up. Evil CLUBS Kaun, CLUBS him again, and calls to the ref. Marty Asami returns and Evil stomps Kaun. Evil drags Kaun up, wrenches the arm and tags in Yujiro. Yujiro CLUBS Kaun’s arm, then reels him in to snapmare and ROCK with a haymaker. Yujiro looms over Kaun to rain down more fists but the ref reprimands. No closed fists! So Yujiro fishhooks Kaun’s nose! Yujiro sits Kaun up to run and basement BOOT! Cover, ONE!!

Yujiro is annoyed but he drags Kaun back up. Yujiro wrenches, wristlocks, and he CLUBS the arm. And stomps it! Kaun clutches the arm, it is taped up from that fight with the War Dogs. Yujiro wraps the arm around ropes! The ref counts, Yujiro lets off at 4 but the House all complains. Tag to Evil and he throws his shirt at Liona. Now the ref has to keep Liona out, and Evil throws Kaun out for the boys to stomp away on! Fans boo these vultures, but then Sho puts Kaun back in for Evil. Cover, TWO! Evil argues with the ref but the fans rally up. Evil tags Yujiro then runs to BLAST Liona! Liona stays up and roars, so Evil pokes him in the eyes!

Evil and Yujiro drag Kaun up, whip him to a corner, and Yujiro runs in but into Kaun’s BOOT! Kaun catches Evil for an URENAGE! Then Kaun uses Evil as a step to SHOTGUN Yujiro! Fans fire up while they’re all done, and Kaun crawls over. Hot tag to Liona! Liona rallies on Yujiro, BOOTS him, then catches Evil for a spin and LARIAT! Fans fire up more and Liona has targets in opposite corners. Liona roars, then SPLASHES Evil! SPLASH for Yujiro! SPLASH for Evil! SPLASH for Yujiro! Liona just keeps going, then he whips Evil into Yujiro! Fans fire up with Liona, and he runs back in, but both Yujiro and Evil dodge!

Yujiro & Evil kick low, double whip to ropes, but Liona breaks the line to DOUBLE SHOULDER TACKLE! Fans fire up again and Liona roars for Kaun! Kaun rises and tags in, and the Gates get Yujiro up! But Yujiro moves, the double lariats collide! Kaun hurries to grab a leg but Yujiro BOOTS Kaun into Liona! Evil tags in and he storms up to CLUB Kaun! Evil stomps Kaun, Yujiro joins in, and the ref reprimands. Yujiro drags Kaun to a corner, he and Evil double whip Kaun corner to corner. Yujiro runs in to BOOT! Evil runs in to clothesline! Snapmare and then they set Kaun up while Sho distracts! Dick hops up, DICK CHOP!!

Fans boo as Evil covers, TWO!! Kaun survives and the fans fire up again! Evil slashes his throat, drags Kaun up, and spins him around, but Liona is back! HELL STAB! Then a HEADBUTT for Yujiro! Liona & Kaun BLAST Dick & Sho off the apron! The fans fire up as now Evil is alone! Kaun & Liona high five and LARIAT SANDWICH! They roar again and they get Evil up. HEAVEN’S GATES!! Cover, but Dick YANKS the ref out!! Fans boo, but Yujiro slips back in to CLUB the Gates! Kaun ROCKS Yujiro in return! Kaun & Liona set Evil & Yujiro up, but they block double low blows! Kanemaru and Sho get in, they DOUBLE LOW BLOW!!

Fans boo as the House stomps away on the Gates! Yujiro has his cane, Dick has the Spoiler Choker. Liona shoves Sho aside but gets the CANE SHOT! Dick CHOKES Kaun, Kanemaru gives him WHISKEY MIST! And then Sho CLOBBERS Kaun with his wrench! Dick gets the ref back in as Evil hits EVERYTHING IS EVIL on Kaun!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: Evil & Yujiro Takahashi, by pinfall (gain 2 points; The Gates of Agony earn 0)

Kaun & Liona lured the House in, but one good trick wasn’t enough to beat the numbers game. The House even mugs the Young Lions trying to help The Gates! Will this be the beginning of the most unwanted comeback in World Tag League history?


2023 World Tag League, Block A: TMDK w/ Kosei Fujita VS Kaito Kiyomiya & Ryohei Oiwa!

The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls did fall for the trickery of Toru Yano. Will TMDK be able to rebound and stay at the top of the block? Or will the Green Supernova and his protege still #CreateTheFuture?

Fans rally up again as Oiwa clamps on a gut wrench, for a GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Oiwa drags Shane up again, GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Oiwa isn’t done, he drags Shane up for a GUT WRENCH BRIDGE! Cover, TWO!

The Dominator & Face of Fury are holding on at 2-2, but so are #WarReady and the Dreadnought! Will the United Empire conquer these War Dogs and stay strong? Or will Kidd & Coughlin win won for the Rebel?

2023 World Tag League, Block A: Shota Umino & Ren Narita VS Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii!

The Reiwa Musketeers are coming off a big main event win last round, and are near the top of the block! But the Clown Prince & Stone Pitbull just took down the top of the block last round against TMDK! Will Yano & Ishii pull off another shocker to get to the front of the line? Or will the Roughneck & Son of Strong Style make it through the Chaos?

The teams sort out and Ishii starts against Narita. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they’re in a deadlock. Every step Narita pushes Ishii back, Ishii pushes Narita back.

Winners: Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii, by pinfall (gain 2 points; Shota & Narita earn 0)

There weren’t any tricks needed here, Ishii & Yano beat the Musketeers straight up! Is it still too soon for Shota & Narita to say the Paradigm Shift is coming?

And because it’s Ishii who won this, he’s a true strong silent type, so he and Yano just get outta here! No closing address tonight, but will actions speak louder than words for the Stone Pitbull in this tournament’s second half?


Here are the NEW A Block standings!

TMDK: 4-1, 8 points
Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii: 3-2, 6 points
Shota Umino & Ren Narita: 3-2, 6 points
War Dogs: 3-2, 6 points
Kaito Kiyomiya & Ryohei Oiwa: 2-3, 4 points
The United Empire: 2-3, 4 points
The House of Torture: 2-3, 4 points
The Gates of Agony: 1-4, 2 points

My Thoughts:

Another great round for World Tag League and this block, with some rather shocking moves. I really thought The Gates were going to get going after their win last round, but I guess the House of Torture couldn’t just drop off that badly so they had to win this here. And as we saw in that main event, Yano & Ishii are making a go of it in this block. They beat Shota & Narita, who are certainly still frontrunners, but that was great stuff to make a point that Shota & Narita aren’t ready to beat the real “old guard” they’re talking about replacing here. War Dogs beating the Empire seems fine, they’re mostly just keeping pace so they could cost somebody later.

And great match from TMDK VS the Noah duo, and a great win for TMDK to again be the clear first place team. 4-1 at the halfway point, this block is on Shane & Mikey to win or lose, and as I’ve been saying, TMDK as both a group and as just these two, the OG members, have been solid a long time. It’d be great if they got to the tournament finals here, maybe even get that title shot at WrestleKingdom.

My Score: 8.9/10
