PLAY BY PLAY

Manchester is now MAN-chester!

The UK is pumped to have Becky Lynch open the show! The Raw Women’s Champion goes into the ring, and fans sing along with her song. Then they change to chanting her name while she gets the mic. “Look at us. The Man is in Manchester!” Back in the UK, too, where Becky trained as a 15 year old kid, and is now a champion challenging for another title. But she’s also in the most dangerous time of her career. The pack of challengers is getting hungrier, the fight is getting harder, and the list is getting long. “Bring them on!” It isn’t lost on her that while she’s been going around the world, the savages are resting, training and improving. And to that, Becky still says, “Bring them on!” If Bayley, Shayna or the Kabuki Warriors think she’s going to slow down, they’re wrong. Getting revenge is what makes her The Man! Becky won’t ever stop running her mouth, slapping their heads, and stop making everyone around her better. The only thing she fears is not being the best.

So with that, why we see Becky regain her legacy of #BeckyTwoBelts? She’s ready to become a WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion in Manchester! And with that, here comes her tag team partner, Charlotte Flair! The Queen of All Eras has the pyro and is ready for gold she hasn’t had yet. Will Becky and Charlotte join their fellow NXT Horsewomen, Sasha Banks and Bayley, in having the tag titles, too? Or are they not ready for Kairi Sane and Asuka?

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: The Kabuki Warriors VS Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch!

The Queen of Harts could not make the trip to the UK due to family reasons, but the Queen of Flair has an old frenemy she can rely on. Will they work together or fall apart against the united #JoshiRoyalty?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and this star studded tag title match begins, after the break!

Raw returns and Becky starts with Asuka! These two have been wanting after each other for a few weeks now, and they circle around the ring. They tie up, Asuka powers Becky but Becky powers back.

Ricochet and Randy Orton argue backstage.

The One and Only and the Viper talk but they overhear The OC getting in the face of Humberto Carrillo. Ricochet stands up for him, and the OC mock him now as the “superhero” of Raw. AJ Styles would love to face these two, but Ricochet has his hands full with Orton. But the OC are much worse than any viper, so start to stepping. But when they don’t, the OC see the anger in their eyes. So they want a piece of the OC? Fine! Scour the locker room or even the city, and find a third! Bring it on! You don’t have friends! Wait, Orton walks over? “Something tells me they’re not going to have to look all that far.” Orton is up for taking on The OC alongside Carrillo and Ricochet.

Erick Rowan speaks.

“Wake up.” Rowan says today is going to be a good day for “daddy.” “You’re so cute.” What is Rowan talking to?

 

WWE 24/7 Championship 2v1 Handicap Match: The Singh Brothers VS R-Truth!

What’s up? The 747 7/11 24/7 European Television Championship being in a regular match, that’s what’s up! Well, an almost regular match. Samir and Sunil are co-stars in this match, but will Truth end the #LightsCameraAndBollywoodAction?

The Singhs go backstage but Truth won’t stop chasing them. They end up in the women’s locker room!? Truth knocks, the Singhs are quite literally thrown out, and they knock Truth into the wall. The brothers hurry, and go into a very dark room. They flip the lights on, but encounter Erick Rowan! Rowan grabs Samir, BOOTS Sunil, then SLAMS Samir into a wall! Rowan throws Sunil into the same wall! And then he lifts the couch and RAMS them both! Big Red just wrecked the Bollywood Boys, and Truth walks in to see the devastation.

They are Imperium, and are here to “restore the honor of our sport!” That mat is SACRED! And just because Rollins isn’t in the United States doesn’t mean he’s safe from an NXT takeover.

Rollins points out he knows who Imperium is and what they did on SmackDOwn. And Rollins appreciates Walter is stepping up. Walter feels he’s the UK’s best, and that title might prove him right. “So let’s find out!” The challenge is accepted, and Rollins is ready to #BurnItDown!

“I have spoken to you about sins, insanity and being condemned.” He’s even spoken in riddles. But has Aleister talked about secrets? Secrets that tie all of that together. Secrets of a man “not so well kept and the sins that it brought him.” Hear Aleister now as he speaks in prophecy. “I know who you are and what you have done. So knock on my door, and pick. A fight. With. ME.” Who is Aleister accusing? Will they respond to be calling out?

 

WWE celebrates Veteran’s Day.

Without their sacrifices, we would not be able to have what we have. We are humbled by their courage to do what the rest of us can’t. Salute those who have fought and those who still fight for our freedom.

 

Lana and Bobby Lashley argue backstage.

The Ravishing Russian has something to reveal, and yet it seems the Rocky Mountain Machine isn’t so sure she should. Lana storms off, and we’ll all learn the secret, next!

 

Lana heads to the ring!

Manchester is not happy with Lana over the drama between her and the Bulgarian Brute. But Lana ignores their boos as she takes up the mic. She is here to “confess sins.” Her loving, hot boyfriend and love of her life, Bobby Lashley, didn’t want her to say any of this. Boo all you like, but the reality is that Lana explained to Lashley that the truth has to come out. The truth is all Lana has as the most ravishing woman in the world. She has few flaws, and lying is not one of them. She would rather be booed for who she is than hated for being something she’s not. Yes, she cheated on Rusev. Don’t boo, that’s being very judgmental! Rusev cheated Lana first! Lana is not a doormat! She won’t be petty, but yes, seven weeks ago, she slept with Lashley for the first time. And Lana is happy to celebrate their seven-week “sexiversary.” Because WOW, Lashley continues to blow her mind every time.

Lana says she has been monogamous in both relationships, because she believes in monogamy. But now Lana is upset over fans mocking her for getting knocked down by Lashley! No one knows what that humiliation is like! But Lana has great support from Lashley, who got her checked out after that incident. Everything on Lana’s body is fine, especially her legs. But then something was revealed in that check-up: she’s nine-weeks pregnant! But for those who aren’t doing the math, or just can’t do it like the people of Manchester, but if seven weeks ago was her first time with Lashley, but she is nine weeks pregnant, then this is Rusev’s “Machka brat” inside her! “That Bulgarian Son of a B*tch!” Lana feels herself bloating already! And now she’s so angry she breaks into Russian! But here comes Rusev! Rusev calmly walks down the ramp, gives a few high-fives, and joins Lana in the ring.

Fans chant for “Rusev Day!” and Lana is not surprised. “The lovely freakin’ father” is here. Fans chant “Daddy’s Home!” Rusev calmly double checks: she’s pregnant? Well he is a sex addict, so of course he got her pregnant! Yes, yes, list it all, they’ve heard it before. But Rusev is just trying to understand all this. First he’s a sex addict, then he’s a cheater, and now he’s the baby daddy? Is Rusev saying Lana is a liar? Just look at her stomach! Rusev is not saying she’s a liar. Don’t do this, Lana. He’s just trying to figure out this manipulation. Lana is the mother of his unborn child! And yet she’s a liar!? He’s just trying to keep up with this! Lana starts firing off SLAPS! She won’t let up! But here comes Lashley! Lana hops on Rusev and rakes his eyes! Lashley gets in and knocks Rusev down! Lashley rains down rights, drags Rusev up, and hits a Complete Shot!

Lashley looms over Rusev while Lana smiles. Fans boo and jeer as Lashley drags Rusev up again, for a CHOKE SLAM! Lana is so proud of her boyfriend, and surprise! She’s NOT pregnant! What lows will Lana sink to next just to stick it to Rusev?

 

Erick Rowan VS Soner Dursun!

Big Red was already talking to a pet of sorts, and then he wrecked the Singh Brothers for barging in. Will Manchester’s own get much of the same?

Rowan puts his pet with Vic and King, and has them watch it for him. The bell rings and Rowan corners Dursun. Dursun throws haymakers, but they do nothing! Rowan CLOBBERS Dursun then tells him to stay down. But when Dursun gets up, Rowan questions if Dursun knows who he is. Dursun kicks but Rowan catches the leg to throw Dursun out! Rowan goes out to BODY CHECK Dursun down! Rowan puts Dursun in the ring, and clamps on the IRON CLAW! For the SLAM! Cover, Rowan wins!

Winner: Erick Rowan, by pinfall

Rowan wrecks another mere mortal, and then goes back for his little pet in the cage. But with that burlap cover, we can’t tell what it is. What little critter does Rowan have in there? And what devastation will Rowan unleash until he has the respect he demands?

 

The Viking Raiders VS Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews!

Erik and Ivar are the Raw Tag Team Champions, but while in the UK, they take on former NXT United Kingdom Tag Team Champions, the Modfater and the rockstar! Will the raid roll on towards Survivor Series? Or will the takeover score big points against one of the most decorated tag teams in the world?

Tag back to Ivar, Andrews does his best to fight back but they’re just too big. But Andrews slides under to double PELE! Andrews runs, but into THOR’S HAMMER!! Cover, the Raiders win!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, Ivar pinning

The raid rolls on as the Raw Tag Team Champions wreck the Welshmen! Will they wreck the best NXT and SmackDown has to offer when its Champions VS Champions VS Champions?

 

Ricochet checks in with Randy Orton.

Orton tunes him out, until Ricochet hits him on the shoulder. Ricochet knows Orton is just doing this to RKO Ricochet like he’s done before. Orton tells Ricochet to relax. The last thing Ricochet needs to do right now is let Orton get in his head. But is it too late for that?

 

Another Champions Triple Threat has been made!

The WWE United States Champion of Raw, AJ Styles, will take on the WWE Intercontinental Champion of SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura, and the NXT North American Champion of the Undisputed Era, Roderick Strong! Who will represent their brand the best in this amazing new triple threat?

 

Plus, the traditional Survivor Series match is escalated!

What used to be a 5v5 Elimination Tag Match is now a 5v5v5! That makes for a 15 person Triple Threat Tag! The women of Raw, SmackDown and NXT will assemble into teams, but so will the men! Rollins’ team has Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, Ricochet and Randy Orton! Who will NXT and SmackDown respond with?

 

Six Man Tag: The OC VS Randy Orton, Ricochet & Humberto Carrillo!

The Phenomenal One and the Best Tag Team in the World take on the Viper, the real-life superhero and Ultimo Ninja to settle the problems brewing within the brand. Which side stands tall in this Manchester main event?

Raw returns as Ricochet and Carrillo make their entrances, followed by The OC’s entrance. The teams sort out and Anderson starts against Ricochet. They circle and tie up, and Ricochet wristlocks but Anderson knocks him down.

Ricochet staggers away, Styles runs in but Ricochet side steps, sending Styles into Orton! Ricochet dodges Styles again, springboard crossbody! Orton storms in but the referee and even Carrillo work to keep him from going after Ricochet. The misunderstanding riles Orton up but Ricochet tries to explain. Raw goes to break as the team works things out.

Raw returns once again as Ricochet slingshots over Styles to mule kick him down! He tags Carrillo who gives Styles another acrobatic arm-drag! Styles boots Carrillo from the corner and whips him corner to corner, but Carrillo goes up to fly for a headbutt! Cover, TWO! Carrillo runs in, tries another arm-drag but gets thrown down on the mat!

Winners: Humberto Carrillo, Ricochet & Randy Orton, Carrillo pinning

Ultimo Ninja pins the United States Champion again! The Viper actually got along with Ricochet, but then keeps him on his toes with the fake-out. Orton lets Ricochet know he does what he wants, when he wants, to whoever he wants. Ricochet and Orton must get along on Team Raw, but will the three most dangerous letters in wrestling still strike the One and Only in the end?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty good Raw to get things going towards Survivor Series, but it still wasn’t that great. For one, the Lana-Lashley-Rusev story just took a sharp right turn into Stupidville. Granted, what else could such a “confession” be but Lana’s pregnant? And then it turns out to be a ruse to sucker Rusev into the ring so Lana could slap him around and have Lashley body slam him. This grudge match better just get out of the way so everyone involved can move on, even though now they’re all thoroughly ruined. And for the love of God, Rusev needs to win so he can teach the home-wrecking, manipulative Heels a lesson. Meanwhile, I have no idea what’s going on with Rowan and his new pet, but it’s already coming off like a cheap knockoff of Jake The Snake. I did like that he got to wreck the Singh Brothers, but he should’ve taken the 24/7 Championship on top of it to make things get serious for a minute. And as for my guess as to what pet Rowan has, I’m pretty sure Vince doesn’t even know what it’ll be yet, but when he does, it’ll be a spider.

We got some great stuff in the build towards Survivor Series, though I didn’t expect WWE to want 15-person Triple Threat Elimination Tags. I know 5 became the standard number but 15 people? That’s up to 14 eliminations if they want to do a sole survivor this year, but I can’t see anyone in these matches getting squashed. Well, sadly, having Dana Brooke on Team SmackDown, she might get squashed against, say, NXT’s Rhea Ripley or Io Shirai. For that matter, we got nothing on which women are going on Team Raw, but there is still time. NXT and SmackDown can even be used to announce those things, which would be smart. I am a bit disappointed Team Raw wasn’t just straight up the team Rollins had against Imperium. That match was so good, Kevin Owens has already been documented in WWE material as being friendly with the Profits, and fans LOVE the Profits! But at the same time, Orton, Ricochet and McIntyre are great talents, so maybe there’s something else planned.

McIntyre VS Sin Cara was alright, but McIntyre all but squashed Sin Cara. Knowing now that Sin Cara wants out of WWE, this might have been the send-off. On the flip side, Almas beats Alexander in a great match, but again Vega helps him win. Aleister Black’s promo was actually a good next step for him. He’s calling someone out, and I hope it’s Almas. Why not have a program with them? It’d be great. The women’s division did great tonight, too, with the WWE Women’s Tag title match. I was glad to see it was Becky and Charlotte challenging, and it was actually a good choice for Shayna to get involved. Bayley finally gets after both Shayna and Becky, and it was fine the champions retain. The Kabuki Warriors should only lose when Paige screws them over. Bayley gets the better of Becky this time, but I still want to see Bayley going after Shayna on NXT this week. Shayna is going to do some work Survivor Series weekend with the Women’s WarGames and then the champions triple threat, she’s gotta come out the winner on at least one of those.

I also love that we’re still getting the midcard champions triple threat. Styles VS Strong VS Nakamura, that is going to be great. There is still going to be Undisputed Era VS Team Ciampa for a Men’s WarGames but hopefully they find a way to let Undisputed Era get away without being too beat up. O’Reilly and Fish do need to get into that tag champion triple threat, too, after all. Viking Raiders didn’t quite squash Andrews & Webster, but they still mostly squashed Andrews & Webster. That triple threat of the tag champions just needs to be amazing to help more casual fans understand the Viking Raiders are amazing. That might be the other reason New Day is in. If a team other than New Day wins, it helps people understand that winning team is that great. Then the Six Man Tag, OC VS Orton-Ricochet-Carrillo, that was great stuff, too. It really gives a story to the Raw team for the 15 Man Tag, but it might be too obvious if Orton betrays Raw by taking out Ricochet.

Then Carrillo being given the pin, Carrillo VS Styles will be another great US Championship match, but let’s save it for after Survivor Series. And when it happens, Carrillo has to win it this time, right? At the same time, Styles is phenomenal, so it’d be fine if he wins again, but it just seems redundant. Why not give it to Carrillo to run with it for a minute, and if Styles wins his way to a rematch, then that’s fine, too.

My Score: 8.3/10

JD Drake speaks.

“Here I am again, just like I talked about the last time I was here: all by myself. Just because unfortunate circumstances happen doesn’t mean the work stops. So it’s time for me, I reckon, just like I said, to reach down, tighten up the bootstraps and get back to work. All by my lonesome.” But then Anthony Henry walks in! No more of that. Not today, not any day. They’ve been doing this since 2016, so they’ll keep doing this. So you know what time it is? Punch in, knock out! The Workhorsemen are riding together again, but will they get past the Spanish Announce Project?

 

ROH World Television Championship Proving Ground: Kyle Fletcher VS London Lightning!

The Aussie Arrow couldn’t help out Will Ospreay last night on Dynamite, but perhaps that was because Don Callis wanted him to be ready for tonight. Will Kyle prove he is The Protostar and the future of this business? Or will he be struck down by the Lightning?

Best of the Super Juniors 31 A Block: BUSHI VS Yoshinobu Kanemaru!

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

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

They go back and forth, Drilla pie faces Kushida, so Kushida fires a flurry!

But Drilla gets under, spins Kushida, but Kushida ducks to then get the arm! Drilla steps over and ENZIGIRIS! But the FASTBALL hits back! The fans fire up for the Masahiro Tanaka and we’re at the five minute mark. Kushida STOMPS Drilla’s hands! Kushida eggs Drilla on, baits him into an ELBOW, then goes up to QUEBRADA! Kushida then hurries back up, for a MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Drilla’s tough and the fans rally up, but Kushida clamps onto the fingers! Drilla breaks free but Kushida KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Drilla falls and goes to a corner while the fans fire up again. Kushida powers up, runs in, and SHOTEIS!

Kushida puts Drilla up top, climbs, but Drilla slips under! CHOP to the leg! Drilla then drags Kushida off the corner into DRILLA- NO, Kushida slips free! But Drilla ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, TWO! Kushida leaps on, but Drilla pushes the Hoverboard away. Kushida comes back to RAM that bad arm! Then he jumps on, HOVER- NO, SPINEBUSTER! And DOUBLE STOMP ELBOW DROP COMBO! Kushida flounders out of the ring and Drilla pursues. Kushida still wants the arm, but Drilla RAMS him into the apron! Drilla follows Kushida to the corner and grabs for him, but Kushida YANKS Drilla into the post first!

Kushida YANKS Drilla into the post again, and then goes up the corner! Kushida pulls Drilla’s arm into the crossbar! The ref counts, Kushida lets go, and Drilla drops back. The ring count starts, the fans rally, but both men are still outside at 10. Drilla drags himself up but the bad arm lets go of the ropes! Kushida is in at 15, Drilla rises at 17! Drilla shakes out the bad arm, and rolls in at 19! Kushida PENALTY KICKS the bad arm! Kushida whips then hip tosses! Cartwheel and DROPKICK! Drilla staggers, Kushida gest the arm, KIMURA!

Sho KICKS Douki again!! Douki writhes and clutches ribs, but Sho aims from a corner! Sho PUNTS Douki in the side!! Cover, TWO?!?! Douki survives, even with Sho’s clearly loaded boot! Sho drags Douki up and reels him in as we reach 20 minutes! Gut wrench, Canadian Rack, PIMP SLAM!! Cover, SHO WINS!

Winner: Sho, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Douki earns 0)

Surprise, surprise, all this cheating helps Sho win! Sho needs an icepack for his leg, because he loaded his kick pad with a big piece of metal! Will Douki ever get one over on this snake?

Speaking of, Sho slithers over to get the mic so he can say, “Everyone thought Douki would win! You were all cheering for him! You at home were, too! You’re welcome, all of you!” The fans boo but Sho continues by saying, “Different day, same result. The champion is on a different level. A different level to all of you! Even if a scrub makes it to the finals, he doesn’t need to be in the main event. I’m winning this comfortably. Besides, you Osaka folks don’t really know wrestling.” The fans boo again, but Sho says that even if it’s in Osaka-Jo, it doesn’t need to be the main event, that’s how easily he’s gonna win.

“I’m on a different level from every other Junior Heavyweight out there, especially those in this Super Juniors!” Sho drops the mic and leaves Douki behind, will he do this to everyone left in the block?

My Thoughts:

Another great night for BOSJ, and things are starting to take shape here. As I said last time, a shame about Akira’s injury, I thought he could really get things going for himself. But B Block is now just a touch lopsided since the forfeited points put some people ahead of others with less matches. Eagles of course gets a win off Dia, Dia has been “struggling” this whole tournament. Hiromu got the bye this round, so he can’t really move in the block. Kushida may have lost but he’s still ahead of Hiromu because Kushida beat Hiromu in their match.

Great win for Drilla in that, though, and he’s getting going at the right time. Drilla has Taiji and Hiromu left, those are going to be critical matches. Sho of course has to cheat again to win out, but it makes Douki look great and has the fans on his side. Douki has the top two, Eagles and Kushida, and he’d need to pull off some ultimate underdog stuff to beat them both and take a spot from one of them.

Meanwhile, A Block is looking like a race to the top between Desperado and Titan. Despe beat Titan in their match from an earlier round, so if he and Titan both win out from here, they’re both going to the semifinals just like that. Despe has TJP next, and TJP is making a great comeback, while Titan has Kanemaru who isn’t even in the running anymore. But TJP and Kanemaru can both go for a spoiler, so those are going to be really good matches. In fact, Titan also has TJP to top this off, he’s in for two big fights in a row. Though, Connors did a lot of damage to Despe, that adds more pressure to whether Despe can get past TJP and then Hayata after that.

My Score: 8.9/10
