Eat, Sleep, Eliminate, Repeat!

That was the new mantra for The Beast, Brock Lesnar, as he started the Royal Rumble and went through half the field! But then, Drew McIntyre appeared as Mr. Sweet Sixteen. With a low blow from Ricochet and a Claymore on top, McIntyre ELIMINATED the WWE World Champion, and then went on to win it all! Where does the Scottish Stud plan on going next as we begin the Road to WrestleMania?


Drew McIntyre heads to the ring!

The winner of the Men’s Royal Rumble didn’t just punch his ticket to WrestleMania, he kicked it! He sent Lesnar out of the ring like a home run and is now poised to have his first ever world championship match in the WWE! As such, he gets to point at the WrestleMania sign! McIntyre gets a mic to speak as fans chant, “You Deserve It!” McIntyre is clearly very touched by that, and says he needs someone to pinch him. He thinks he’s dreaming. And it feels so good to stand here in San Antonio that the winner of the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble is DREW MCINTYRE. Does everyone know what that means? It means he’s going to WrestleMania!

Now some people play games when in this position, drawing it out and stuff. But that’s not McIntyre’s style. He is going to make an announcement, and he’s going to make a challenge. McIntyre challenges BROCK LESNAR! Fans love that! McIntyre can say for a fact that most of the men are terrified of Lesnar, but not him. McIntyre looked in Lesnar’s eyes and saw a sign that he could Claymore Lesnar out of the ring, and that’s what he did. And there’s more: McIntyre vows to BEAT Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Mania! McIntyre is all fired up but he needs to get this energy out. He wants to give out some Claymores. Let’s have a #ClaymoreParty tonight! So he makes an open challenge to anyone in the back that’s “got the balls” to fight him!

The OC appears! Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows storm their way out, minus AJ Styles after an unfortunate shoulder injury in the Rumble. Anderson says this sounds like an open challenge. That’s because it is. And the Machine Gun accepts! But Gallows says he accepts the challenge. Well if the fans are thinking what Drew is thinking, the Dream Maker will give them both a match! Get a referee!

2v1 Handicap: The OC VS Drew McIntyre!

The Scottish Stud is riding high, but he’s going against the Best Tag Team in the World! Is this wise so soon after his amazing Rumble victory?

The bell rings and Anderson starts with McIntyre. They tie up, McIntyre waistlocks and throws Anderson aside. Anderson is already frustrated and he CHOPS. Anderson isn’t afraid, but that CHOP still floors him! McIntyre dead lift suplexes Anderson! Tag to Gallows and now McIntyre circles with the Big LG. McIntyre powers Gallows to a corner to throw hands and a CHOP! And another! Gallows throat chops and knees back hard, then tags Anderson. The OC want it but no Magic Killer here. McIntyre knocks Gallows down and headbutts Anderson. McIntyre whips and THROWS Anderson overhead! Fans fire up as he does it again! McIntyre heads up top and watches Anderson stand, big leaping ax handle! And a kip up!

Gallows runs in, misses, and gets FUTURE SHOCK! Another kip up and McIntyre is just showing off now. McIntyre aims at Anderson and gives us the countdown. CLAYMORE! But the party isn’t over, it’s just beginning! Gallows gets up, gets a countdown of his very own, CLAYMORE AGAIN! McIntyre stacks and covers them both, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

Somehow it seemed like the handicap was in McIntyre’s favor. McIntyre clears the ring, but here comes BROCK LESNAR!? He’s here!? And he gives McIntyre an F5!! The Beast gets payback but he’s just a sore loser. Will Lesnar be even more sore when he and McIntyre finally throw down at Mania?


Raw relives some classic Edge moments.

That is to say, WrestleMania 17 in 2001, THE TLC match where Edge spears Jeff Hardy out of the air! But his moment last night at the Rumble was perhaps his biggest yet. Is Edge going to give us even more iconic moments now that he’s back?


Rey Mysterio VS MVP!

The King of Lucha Libre didn’t last as long as he’d hoped in the Royal Rumble, but he’ll refocus on the Road to WrestleMania. But another return is happening tonight as Montel Vontavius Porter is BACK on Raw! Will MVP become the MVP of Raw?

The bell rings and MVP circles with Mysterio. They tie up, Mysterio headlocks but MVP powers out. They collide but neither falls. MVP dares Mysterio to keep going, and they do. MVP manages to keep up but Mysterio sweeps to cover, ONE. MVP sweeps to cover, ONE, and the two stand off. Fans like the exchange as Mysterio and MVP circle. “You Still Got It!” Mysterio and MVP tie up, Mysterio waistlocks but MVP powers out. Mysterio comes back to waistlock again, MVP powers out to wrench and whip. Mysterio goes up and over, things speed up again, and MVP BOOTS Mysterio down! MVP covers, TWO! He tries again but the ropes are too close. MVP drags Mysterio up to throw hands and forearms.

MVP has Mysterio up and clubs him on the back. Mysterio looks in bad shape and he wobbles to the corner. MVP keeps on him with a mudhole, but then Mysterio drop toeholds him into buckles! Mysterio steadies himself and enziguris MVP down! MVP bails out and Mysterio goes to the apron for a flying headscissors! MVP hits barriers and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and MVP has Mysterio on the ropes. MVP bumps Mysterio on buckles then whips him to ropes. Mysterio kicks back and throws forearms! MVP whips again and Mysterio hits buckles. Mysterio boots back then again, and then hops up the ropes. MVP clubs Mysterio to stop him, then Electric Chairs, only for Mysterio to slip around and headscissor MVP into buckles! MVP sputters as he turns around and fans are rallying for Mysterio. Mysterio kicks MVP in the leg and throws forearms. MVP reverses the whip as fans duel, but Mysterio hits the tilt-o-whirl headscissors! MVP puts Mysterio on the apron but Mysterio hits back to climb up and fly! Seated Senton hits, then Mysterio LIONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!

Mysterio keeps moving, springboard but MVP catches him for a SLAM! MVP decides to go BALLIN’! Elbow drop! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Mysterio saves himself and MVP can’t believe it. MVP toys with Mysterio now, only giving him scuffing kicks. MVP brings Mysterio around to bring into position, but Mysterio fights out of the bomb to headscissor MVP onto ropes! Dial it up, but MVP gets up, only to get the 619 in the back! Mysterio keeps going, frog splash to the back! Cover, Mysterio wins!

Winner: Rey Mysterio, by pinfall

Mysterio makes it work against the returning MVP, and Mysterio might be returning to rare form. Will Mysterio find his way to a title in time for Mania?


Aleister Black VS Kenneth Johnson!

The Embodiment of the End didn’t make the Rumble #FadeToBlack, but that doesn’t mean Aleister has missed out on gold. With time still to spare, will Aleister find his way to championship vindication?

The bell rings and Aleister rushes Johnson. Aleister gives a testing kick to see how tough Johnson is. The strikes really sting but so does the waistlock throw and BLACK MASS! Aleister is almost upset that he covers and wins!

Winner: Aleister Black, by pinfall

Another fast victory for the dark warrior. Aleister takes to the mic, saying “last night, I got eliminated in the Royal Rumble. But before you think that people like Buddy Murphy or Seth Rollins are to blame, the only person accountable for my loss is me.” If Aleister starts and doesn’t finish, that’s on him, and he owns that. There is also something else he is accountable for. He made the mistake of waiting for someone to come pick, a fight, with him. Aleister now sits in the ring to say that starting tonight, everything changes. Raw’s roster doesn’t pick a fight with him, he brings the fight to them! Who will be first to cross paths with the ominous one?


Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy head to the ring!

The Monday Night Messiah and his first disciple are here ahead of their tag team championship match. What will they have to say before throwing down with Samoa Joe and KO? We find out after the break.

Raw returns and Rollins has a mic as he and Murphy stand side-by-side. “Now last night, I was this close from winning the Royal Rumble for the second year in a row!” But it was not in the cards. Rollins was eliminated by the eventual winner, Drew McIntyre. Yes, applaud McIntyre, everyone’s new favorite. But enjoy it while it lasts, McIntyre, because fans stab you in the back so fast. But Rollins isn’t here for the negative, but the positives. Two positives were that Rollins eliminated Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe so that neither goes to Mania. Another positive is the man beside him. Rollins and Murphy dethroned the unbeatable Viking Raiders to become the NEW Raw Tag Team Champions!

Earlier today, Joe and KO put the challenge for the titles. And since Rollins is “a benevolent leader,” the challenge was accepted! Kevin, Joe, come on out to get your asses handed to you! KO appears first, and he also has a mic. Joe is next, and even Joe has a mic. Kevin asks Joe if Rollins still talks too much. He does. But to make Rollins aware of something, Rollins is not only delusional, but these last few months, he’s been an absolute jackass. Kevin means that from the bottom of his heart, Rollins SUCKS. Rich, Kevin, real rich. Kevin talking about someone else talking too much? Then stop talking and fight! Joe wants everyone to wait. Who is this boy putting on his big boy pants? Kevin and Joe have been looking for this fight but Rollins hasn’t. So what is it about tonight? It must be that the AOP are hiding somewhere. Under the ring? In the crowd? Ready to pounce?

Rollins knew Kevin would get like this so he told Akam and Rezar to stay in the back. And there’s a camera back there to keep an eye on them. The Authors of Pain are in the back, and in the locker room. No hiding, no sneaking. Well that’s fine for Joe. It’s not like there aren’t just a bunch of cameras that record things. Is Joe calling Rollins a liar?! Rollins is NOT a liar! Prove that’s a live feed! Akam speaks to Kevin, and now we see Rollins is telling the truth. So then the AOP is back there in Rollins’ dressing room? Yes, right now. Well okay then. But then, thanks for exposing where those two are. What? THE VIKING RAIDERS get at the AOP! Erik and Ivar make sure Akam and Rezar can’t help Rollins out tonight! Referees and security hurry to stop this brawling, but we still have the tag title match! Does Rollins have a back-up plan for this?


Raw relives another classic Edge moment.

The first man to ever cash in the Money in the Bank was Edge! And he did it the biggest way possible: taking advantage of a bloodied John Cena after a grueling Elimination Chamber match! Will the Ultimate Opportunist find an amazing opportunity now that he’s back?


Raw Tag Team Championships: Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy VS Samoa Joe & Kevin Owens!

The Architect didn’t have the AOP being neutralized in his designs, and now he and his disciple must go it alone! Will they be able to survive an angry and determined Samoan Submission Machine and Prizefighter? Or will another Monday night miracle happen?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and this semblance of retribution begins!

Rollins and Joe start and circle as San Antonio chants for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” Joe and Rollins tie up, Rollins headlocks to hammerlock to headlock again. Rollins wrenches and laughs, but Joe just sneers as he works on the escape. Joe DECKS Rollins and Kevin laughs as Rollins bails out. Murphy checks on Rollins’ jaw as the ring count begins. Rollins complains that Joe and Kevin are too close, so they back off. Rollins returns but tags out to Murphy. Murphy gives Rollins a quick hug before circling with Joe. They tie up, Murphy waistlocks but Joe pries free with force. Joe headbutts Murphy down and Rollins is annoyed. Joe CHOPS Murphy down and Rollins is stunned.

Joe jabs away on Murphy in the corner until Murphy sits down. Joe drags Murphy up and throws a BIG forearm! Murphy wobbles but Joe is on him with another forearm. Murphy hits back then runs, but gets run over! Joe drags Murphy up and tags in Kevin, they mug Murphy in the corner! Kevin fires off but lets up at 4, to tell Rollins to “SUCK IT!” Rollins is furious but the ref keeps him back. Kevin places Murphy in a drop zone for a Vader Bomb elbow! Cover, TWO, but Kevin puts Murphy in the corner to CHOP! Tag to Joe and Joe snapmares Murphy to CHOP him on the back and Penalty Kick him from the front! Running elbow drop and a cover, TWO! Murphy survives but Joe won’t let up. Joe drags Murphy back to the corner to tag Kevin, and Kevin gives a big corner clothesline.

Kevin reels Murphy out of the corner for another clothesline! Kevin mocks Rollins and Murphy to reach for each other, but then Kevin drags Murphy around to whip hard into buckles. Cover, TWO, but Kevin keeps his focus. Kevin brings Murphy back to tag Joe again. Joe headbutts Murphy then CHOPS him against ropes. Murphy hobbles over but Joe keeps him from Rollins. Joe uses a Russian Leg Sweep to take Murphy down, then covers, TWO! Murphy is proving his toughness but Kevin tags back in. KO and Joe mug Murphy more and then Kevin gives Murphy a backbreaker. Cover, TWO! Kevin puts Murphy in the corner, tags Joe, and Joe back suplexes. Murphy slips out but walks into a CHOP. Joe whips, Murphy dodges, Rollins tags in. Joe is ready and punches them both away, but Murphy mule kicks. Murphy and Rollins double whip to double elbow!

Rollins CHOPS and punches and stomps Joe in the corner, and Rollins gets all fired up! Fans boo but Rollins doesn’t seem to hear it. Tag to Murphy and together they double whip Joe corner to corner. Murphy whips Rollins in but Joe puts Rollins way out! Joe dodges Murphy, then dodges the crossbody with ease! Joe clotheslines Murphy out of the ring, and Kevin CANNONBALLS onto Rollins! Joe DIVES to hit Murphy into barriers! The champions are in trouble as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Rollins now mocks Kevin about where Joe went. It seems that dive took more out of Joe than it did Murphy. Rollins stomps Kevin then tags in Murphy. The champs double suplex Kevin up and down then Murphy covers, TWO! Murphy knees Kevin in the back over and over then wraps on a chinlock. Kevin endures but this is basically a handicap match now. Fans rally because they’re still on Kevin’s side, and Kevin fights up to fight out with body shots. Murphy kicks but is blocked, Kevin kicks back and SPIKES Murphy with that DDT! Both men are down but there’s still no one for Kevin to tag! Murphy crawls and tags Rollins back in. Rollins runs at Kevin but misses! Rollins only gets buckles, Kevin goes up top, FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!

All three men are down, from Kevin to Rollins to Murphy on the apron. But Murphy gets up because Rollins needs him again. Tag and the Aussie Juggernaut heads at Kevin again. Fans rally and Kevin SLAPS Murphy then CHOPS him! Kevin keeps throwing haymakers and forearms then runs, into a calf kick! Murphy kips up and covers, TWO! Murphy can’t believe it, but he still has the advantage. Rollins tells fans to shut up with the cheering for Kevin, but Murphy puts Kevin in the corner. Tag and Rollins throws hands. Kevin throws them back! Kevin fights back but Rollins throws big hands. Rollins brings Kevin around but he can’t powerbomb. Kevin back drops and POP-UP BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Rollins survives and Kevin was so close!

Fans rally as Kevin and Rollins are down again. Rollins heads back to his corner, tag to Murphy. Murphy goes after Kevin and they brawl. Murphy gets the edge then gets Kevin up top for a sharp enziguri! Murphy climbs up to join Kevin, but Kevin blocks the superplex! Kevin powers up and fights back with body shots. Kevin headbutts Murphy a few times then SUPER GOURD BUSTERS! Kevin adjusts, to SWANTON! Cover, but Rollins breaks it! Rollins saves the reign as he drags Kevin up and off Murphy. But Kevin throws Rollins out first, and then FLIES! Direct hit with the tope and Kevin gets back in. KNEE TRIGGER! Kevin is on the ropes and the ref backs Murphy off. But Kevin saw last week and avoids the apron stomp. Kevin wants a stunner, but Murphy denies it. So Kevin just gives Rollins the STUNNER! But Murphy rolls Kevin up, Murphy and Rollins win!!

Winners: Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy, Murphy pinning; still Raw Tag Team Champions

The Messiah and his disciple win, but mostly because Kevin no longer had Joe watching his back. Will Joe make a recovery so they can try again? Or are Rollins and Murphy coasting their way to WrestleMania?


Raw has another classic Edge moment.

The 2010 Royal Rumble was also a night of a Rated R return, and another night Edge got the better of John Cena! Ten years went by so fast, but will we get more unforgettable moments after tonight?


Backstage interview with Becky Lynch!

The Man is still Raw Women’s Champion, and her win over Asuka means so much to her. The win means even more than she thought it would. She had been doubting herself, so finally getting even with Asuka brought about a profound realization. Becky held the belt and it hit her. ” I really am in a whole different league than those dopes!” She can’t believe she ever doubted herself! She called her shots, beat them all, and she has done it all! But now that she’s clear of debts, the next arse she beats will be because she wants to, not that she has to! And with that, Charlotte Flair won the Women’s Rumble, guaranteeing her spot to Mania. What if it were Charlotte? Well it won’t be the first, but it will be the last. Becky is now the GOAT, but will that be enough to finally get rid of the Queen of Queens?


WWE United States Championship: Andrade Almas w/ Zelina Vega VS Humberto Carrillo!

From one title match to another! El Idolo remained El Campeon in Houston, and he did it cleanly! But that was still a close one, will Almas have La Muneca help make sure Ultimo Ninja loses once and for all? Or is the third time the charm for the young Latino superhero?

Raw returns as Carrillo makes his entrance. Carrillo gets in the ring, ready for this newest opportunity at redemption. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the newest chapter in this budding rivalry begins!

Carrillo rushes Almas and dropkicks him down! Carrillo punches and stomps away but backs off at the ref’s count. Then he comes back to stomp Almas more! ALmas bails out and Vega protests, but Carrillo SUPERKICKS Almas! Carrillo clubs Almas then throws him into barriers! The ring count climbs and Vega shouts at Carrillo, but then Almas shoves Carrillo into the post! Almas CHOPS Carrillo and the count reaches 7 before the two go in the ring. Almas dares Carrillo to stand, and then he just hits a big knee in the corner! Cover, ONE, and Almas seethes as he stomps Carrillo in the corner. The ref backs Almas off and Almas gets mad. Carrillo throws hands back on Almas but Almas knees and forearms and CHOPS back.

Almas grinds and chokes Carrillo on the ropes but lets up at 4. Almas backs off to then come back and stomp both feet into Carrillo’s face! Fans boo and jeer but Almas tunes them all out. Almas whips Carrillo corner to corner then runs in, but Carrillo dodges! Almas tumbles over and out to the floor! Vega panics as Carrillo dropkicks Almas back down. Carrillo builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp and Almas is on the defensive! Vega is in shock as we go to break.

Raw returns again and Almas knees low. Almas whips but Carrillo kicks back! Carrillo springboards but is thrown down on the mat! Vega coaches Almas as he drags Carrillo into that modified surfboard from last night. Cover, but Carrillo bridges out at ONE. Carrillo endures as fans rally up, and Carrillo sits up out of the surfboard, only to get BOMBED! Almas sits Carrillo up in the corner for mudhole stomps and big forearms. Almas runs corner to corner, but Cien Shadows hits buckles! Carrillo crawls away but Almas hobbles after him. Almas brings Carrillo up and back suplexes but Carrillo slips out to speed up, only to get a SPINE BUSTER! But Carrillo headscissors right back! Carrillo springboards and crossbodies! Almas dodges the dropkick but Carrillo dodges the lariat to enziguri! Somersault moonsault hits! Cover, TWO!!

Carrillo and Almas are down but fans rally up. Carrillo waistlocks but Almas elbows out hard. Almas brings Carrillo around to suplex but Carrillo slips out to springboard, only for Almas to trip him up! Cover, TWO! Vega protests but then tells Almas to keep focused. Carrillo is in the corner, but Almas doesn’t want to go corner to corner. Almas drags Carrillo up, but Carrillo slips out. Roundhouse misses but not the enziguri! Or the springboard roundhouse! Carrillo positions Almas in the drop zone and climbs up, MOONSAULT! Cover, but Vega gets in!!

Winner: Humberto Carrillo, by disqualification; Andrade Almas is still WWE United States Champion

But Carrillo has had it! He snaps and goes after Almas with stomps and punches! Vega protests but this is her fault! Carrillo throws Almas into steel steps! And now, to return the favor, Carrillo exposes the floor! Carrillo drags Almas to the bare patch of concrete as Vega freaks out! Vega begs for mercy, but Carrillo uses Almas’ on HAMMERLOCK DDT onto the concrete!! Ultimo Ninja may have just destroyed El Idolo! Will the wrath of Carrillo only continue to build until he finally gets that US title?


Raw relives a sadder moment for Edge.

It was a Monday Night Raw in 2011 that Edge had to retire because of a very concerning neck injury. That moment in itself is why his return is so miraculous and shocking. We said “Thank You, Edge!” before, and now we say, “Welcome Back!” But just what does his return really mean?


Charlotte Flair heads to the ring!

Drew McIntyre already made his decision and it seemed pretty easy. But what will the winner of the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble decide? Charlotte grabs herself a mic and points to the sign. For those who didn’t watch the Rumble, Charlotte won! Charlotte did something that she said she would. She doesn’t want to brag too much, but she is Charlotte Flair. Check out the highlights! Alexa Bliss and Bianca Belair were impressive as long lasting first and second entrants in the Rumble, but Charlotte was a sinister 17 as she eliminated them and even the Queen of Spades, Shayna Baszler!

“I did that. I outlasted 29 other women.” So in just 10 weeks, Charlotte gets to face a champion of her choice at WrestleMania. She does not take this decision lightly because it means so much. At Mania, Charlotte will challenge… for a championship. She’s still thinking about it, of course. But wait, here come the Kabuki Warriors! Asuka introduces herself and Kairi Sane in Japanese, and then uses English to congratulate Charlotte! But “I don’t think so!” Asuka won’t let Charlotte hog the spotlight just for winning the Royal Rumble. Asuka did that her first year, and it was easy peasy! The Kabuki Warriors get in the ring with Charlotte and fans are cheering for Asuka! Charlotte knows all that, but maybe they can celebrate together. Sure, sure. But if Asuka is sure she would’ve won the Rumble twice. So is this some kind of challenge? No, it’s a fight! The Kabuki Warriors double suplex Charlotte down! Raw goes to break, will someone come to Charlotte’s aid?


Charlotte Flair VS Asuka w/ Kairi Sane!

It seems no one saved The Queen, but she’ll happily take on the Empress of Tomorrow on her own! There is a lot of history already between these two, and now that they’ve both won a Women’s Rumble, will we see who is truly the superior?

The bell rings and the two tie up fast and furious. Charlotte gets Asuka down but Asuka gets up to bring Charlotte down. They go around and around and then into a corner. Charlotte lets up and then they tie up again! Asuka headlocks but Charlotte powers out. The two collide with shoulders and start shoving. Charlotte CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Asuka ducks to run, only to get run over! Charlotte drags Asuka up again to whip and hip toss. Charlotte runs to Penalty Kick Asuka down! Kairi coaches Asuka but Charlotte is on her with knees tot he back. Charlotte drags Asuka to whip her to a corner. Asuka reverses but Charlotte tumbles over and out to shoulder and slingshot back in. Charlotte arm-drags Asuka down into an armlock!

Fans rally and duel, with Kairi tipping the scales in Asuka’s favor. Asuka fights her way up but Charlotte wrenches. Asuka rolls and sweeps the legs to then run and Shining Wizard! Cover, TWO, but Asuka grits her teeth. Asuka throws off armbands and heads after Charlotte. Asuka kicks Charlotte in the back and against the ropes. The ref reprimands so Asuka runs, but the hip attack misses. Asuka hits Charlotte with a forearm, but runs into the backbreaker! Charlotte clotheslines Asuka down and the fans are divided. Asuka boots Charlotte but Charlotte forearms back. Charlotte puts the leg on the ropes but Asuka gets clear to give back more forearms. Asuka headlocks but the bulldog is denied, and a shotgun dropkick puts Asuka in a corner!

Fans rally and duel as Charlotte goes after Asuka’s leg with knee drops. Charlotte puts the leg on the ropes now and wraps it around! The ref counts and Charlotte lets up at 4. Kairi shouts for Asuka to get up, and Asuka kicks the Figure Four away! Asuka waistlocks for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Charlotte sits up in a daze while Kairi coaches Asuka back in this. Asuka climbs up top and missile dropkicks Charlotte down! Cover, ONE, and with some force. Asuka keeps on Charlotte with a waistlock but Charlotte resists suplexes. So Asuka climbs on for an Iron Octopus Stretch! Charlotte endures being bent and twisted around, then powers out! Asuka sunset flips but Charlotte slips out to basement dropkick Asuka down! Charlotte CHOPS Asuka and shouts, “I already beat you!” Charlotte keeps giving CHOPS as Asuka ends up in the corner!

Charlotte hoists Asuka up top and then climbs up to join her. Kairi grows concerned as Charlotte goes up, but then Asuka shoves her down! The Queen is down and the Empress is on top as we go to break.

Raw returns again and Charlotte brawls with Asuka! Forearm for forearm but Asuka runs, into Charlotte’s waistlock and back suplex! Both women are down but Asuka gets to a corner. Charlotte kips up and fires up! San Antonio fires up as Asuka dodges and back kicks to hit the bulldog! Cover, TWO! Charlotte survives but Asuka keeps close. Asuka brings Charlotte up for forearms and elbows. Asuka heads to the corner and up top, but Charlotte avoids the missile dropkick to dropkick Asuka! Asuka is on the apron and Kairi shouts her concern, but Asuka hotshots Charlotte! Charlotte BOOTS Asuka down! Cover, TWO!! Asuka survives her head being knocked off her shoulders but Charlotte won’t let up. Charlotte puts Asuka in a drop zone, walks all over her, and climbs up top. Charlotte MOONSAULTS but FLOPS!

Asuka grabs Charlotte in a modified submission, some kind of inverted triangle hold! Charlotte flops around to pop free, but ends up in a normal triangle. Charlotte covers, ONE, and Asuka shifts again to get a better grip. But Charlotte dead lifts Asuka up for a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Asuka still lives and Kairi breathes in relief. Charlotte backs away to a corner and watches Asuka rise, Natural Selection misses, and Asuka wrenches. Asuka runs and gives Charlotte a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Charlotte survives and Asuka can’t believe it! But Kairi helps her focus and she brings Charlotte back up. Chicken wing and sleeper hold, but Charlotte rolls back to cover, TWO! Asuka misses a kick but dodge the boot, Charlotte SPEARS! Cover, TWO!! Tom Philips is losing his voice while Kairi is losing her cool.

Charlotte grabs a leg, Figure Four but Asuka cradle counters! The counter slips off, Charlotte has the hold! Charlotte wants to bridge but Asuka drags herself backwards towards the corner! Charlotte bridges, FIGURE EIGHT! Kairi drops anchor, InSANE Elbow!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by disqualification

Well that’s a familiar sight, as far as Kairi dropping in like that. But now Charlotte is defenseless as Kairi hammers away from all sides! Kairi stomps and hammers Charlotte in the corner then clubs her down. But Charlotte throws Kairi into buckles! And BOOTS Kairi down! Asuka hurries to get Kairi to safety, and shouts at her in Japanese! Nothing has been settled between these fierce warriors, but will Charlotte forget her Mania goals to take care of the royal pains in her side?


It’s Raw and the Street Profits are hyped again!

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins have been loving this! Charlotte and Asuka, Lesnar and McIntyre, and it is live and Rated R! But speaking of surprises, it’s KELLY KELLY! Holla holla~… But theme songs aside, Dawkins introduces himself. The Dawk Night, the Dawk Father, and even… Dawk Vader. Um, okay. Ford thinks this is so cute. But with just 10 weeks away, the WWE 24/7 Championship is going to make an appearance! As always, #WeWantTheSmoke!


WWE 24/7 Championship San Antonio Showdown: Mojo Rawley w/ Riddick Moss VS ???

The newest and most brutal 24/7 Champion yet seems to have some back-up tonight. One half of the Outliers made it back to the States from the UK, but will Riddick be able to protect Mojo like a football lineman? Or can Mojo’s opponent manage a strip sack fumble to take the title to the house?

Raw returns as Mojo grabs the mic to ask, “Is the 24/7 Champion actually about to defend the title inside a ring?” Whoa…! But Mojo said he wasn’t going to run and hide! This is no longer the Hide and Go Seek title. Anyone can bring it any time, any place. It can be in the ring, backstage, the gym or yo mama’s house! Like any franchise quarterback knows, you need a strong offensive line to watch your blindsides. So introducing to Raw for the first time ever, it IS Riddick Moss! So if anyone wants to take this from Mojo, just know that you’ll get blocked. No Way Jose turns out to be the opponent. Will he need more than the starting 11 to take this win?

The bell rings and Mojo chop blocks Jose! Then he goes side to side to FOREARM! Then he fireman’s carries and SLAMS Jose down! Cover, Mojo wins!

Winner: Mojo Rawley, by pinfall; still WWE 24/7 Champion

That was a quick three-and-out, but the burger clown gets in the ring! The burger clown rolls Mojo up and wins!! That burger clown is R-TRUTH!!

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

So much for Moss being a good blocker. The Truth Whopper gets the title back to become a whopping 32-time 24/7 champion! But Truth celebrates too long and gets flanked by Moss. Truth breaks it down, but then turns around into Mojo’s FIREMAN SLAM! Cover, Mojo wins again!

Winner: Mojo Rawley, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion

And Mojo gets the ball back. Moss may need to work on his defense but surely he’ll intercept challengers next time. Will Mojo continue to stack days rather than reigns? Or will Truth return later in the season like a division rival to spoil Mojo’s run?


Liv Morgan VS Lana!

The Ravishing Russian’s karma is catching up to her as the LIVing Embodiment finally gets a match with her. Rusev and Bobby Lashley are banned from ringside given their volatility. Will Lana and Liv finally settle the score? Or is this just the first stop on the Road to WrestleMania?

Raw returns as Liv storms right to the ring. The two want at each other, and the bell lets them loose. They tie up, Liv puts Lana on the ropes but backs off. Lana SLAPS but Liv kicks! Liv whips Lana to the corner then hits a big back elbow! Liv snapmares Lana hard to kick her in the back even harder. Cover, ONE, but Liv slaps Lana around. Liv hops up but Lana shoves her down! The Ravishing Russian talks a lot of trash before going out to fetch Liv into the ring. But Liv hits back with forearms, only to get a ROUNDHOUSE! Cover, TWO! Lana is furious as she drags Liv up for a suplex. Lana shouts that she is the best in the world, but fans all boo in disagreement. Lana wraps Liv up in a chinlock and thrashes her around. Fans rally up for “Rusev Day!” as Liv gets up and arm-drags Lana off her.

Liv lariats Lana again and again, then throws her down by her hair! Lana wobbles up into an enziguri! Liv roars and runs in to DOUBLE STOMP Lana face down! Cover, TWO, but Liv doesn’t slow down. Liv lifts but Lana cradle counters, TWO! Liv rocks Lana with rights and then uses the ropes for a draping Complete Shot! Cover, Liv wins!!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall

Vindication for Liv! That unique use of the ropes in the facebuster gives Liv the retribution she’s wanted, but will she find satisfaction so easily?


Erick Rowan VS Branden Vice!

The Big Redwood has been having some problems making his pet behave. Will he take his frustrations out on the defenseless creature in the ring with him?

The bell rings and Rowan dropkicks Vice right out of the ring! Rowan then goes outside and runs around the way to BODY CHECK Vice down! Rowan drags Vice up to haul him back into the ring, and then runs corner to corner to CRUSH him! Rowan scoops Vice up into a suplex and JACKHAMMER! Cover, but Rowan lets up on purpose! Rowan wants to make Vice suffer, IRON CLAW SLAM! Cover, now Rowan wins.

Winner: Erick Rowan, by pinfall

Mortal men don’t stand a chance against the raging redwood that is Erick Rowan. Will Rowan and his pet be feasting tonight?



San Antonio erupts and Edge gives commentary high-fives as the Rated R Superstar is back on Raw! As is his insane amount of pyro! Edge goes to the ring and gets his official introduction. Not quite Chimmel but good enough. Edge gets a mic for himself and fans are still thunderous as they welcome him back. Edge is of course very touched by this ovation, and takes a moment to collect himself. “As a performer, as an athlete, as an artist, and trust me, wrestlers are all of those things. The reaction I got last night at the Royal Rumble” and here tonight, he can’t put into words what it means to him. But that is why we do this, so he thanks them. Fans assure him, “You Still Got It!” “You’re damn right I do.”

Edge wants to address the elephant in the room. How is he here just a day removed from the Rumble? Nine years ago, he was medically disqualified from ever doing this again. But Edge refused to life in a world of “What If?” The second he asks that, he gets to work to make that question disappear. Over the years, Edge felt pretty good. Edge then asked himself, “What If?” That is to say, what if Edge came back home? So Edge got to work. And fans now chant, “Welcome Home!” Edge worked hard, got another surgery, and busted his ass. He got in the best shape of his life at 46 years old and is back! He wants to end his career on his terms! Fans love the sound of that! Edge ended up in the Royal Rumble, saw some familiar faces and some new ones. A familiar one was Randy Orton, a newer one was Roman Reigns. There was AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Aleister Black, Matt Riddle, so on and so forth. He hopes to see them all again real soon.

But Edge knows this might not last. Who knows how much he has. But Edge sure hopes that the fans are with him on this ride. They certainly are! Well that’s the first Yes chant, so thanks Daniel Bryan. But Edge also knows that he’s older, grayer, wrinkled, but it is the road map that got him here. So Edge has one thing that no one can fabricate, fake or force someone’s throat. And the way you know you have it is you look someone in the eye. That thing Edge has: grit. “If you knock me down, I get back up.” But here comes Randy Orton! Rated RKO reunited in the Royal Rumble, but it also imploded as Edge got one over on The Viper. Orton gets in the ring with Edge now, and they hug it out!

Orton gets himself a mic to say, “It’s no secret that I have somewhat a self-destructive personality.” But driving around, when there was a hole Orton dug too deep, there was a guy that’d help drag him out of it. That one guy was Edge. Orton officially welcomes Edge home. They’re brothers, and last night, that energy of Edge’s music hitting and feeling the chemistry that only they have, “that was special.” Edge is talking about What If. Orton has one for us. He doesn’t know how anyone will feet about this, but what if Rated RKO really reunited? Fans are freaking out and thunderous with “YES! YES! YES!” Edge looks Orton in the eyes, to get an RKO OUTTA NOWHERE!! Of course that happened… Fans are angry with Orton now as he grabs a chair! Orton keeps it away from Edge to sit it up. But then Orton changes his mind and uses it to SMACK Edge on the back! Orton is going to break Edge all over again!!

Orton watches Edge crawl and writhe for a moment before going to a corner. Fans chant, “You Suck!” but Orton just said he had a self-destructive tendency. Orton is destroying all the good will he’d gathered up, and the friendship between him and Edge, as he takes the chair and opens it up. Fans fear what is coming next, and even Orton hesitates… to put Edge’s head inside the chair! Orton already did damage, but he could do something far worse tonight! Orton hops up onto the ropes and looks down at the defenseless man he just called a brother. Fans shout for Orton to stop this, but Orton stands up on the ropes, only to hop back down. Orton takes the chair off Edge’s head and tosses it aside. A moment of compassion is just a guise for something sinister! TWO chairs, because there’s something Edge used to do that Orton wants to use now!

Referees rush out to shout at Orton but he still sets Edge’s head on one chair. Orton raises the other for… a CON-CHAIR-TO!!! Some fans call Orton names, but many more are just in shock over what they witnessed. Did the Rated R Superstar return just for The Viper to end his legacy?



My Thoughts:

Well, this was definitely a shocking Raw After Rumble. Opening with McIntyre was a great move, I love that he’s Face but with the same attitude he had before the Rumble, and while it’s a shame The OC have to suffer, it was great to see McIntyre win a handicap match. I have a feeling we were supposed to get a strong match between McIntyre and AJ Styles, but Styles hurt his shoulder during the Rumble match so it’s more important Styles recovers and has a chance at being back around Mania. At the same time, Lesnar coming back for revenge also fit. It definitely adds to the Heel Heat on Lesnar, and the heat between these two. I fully expect McIntyre to have a rant in return for either social media or Raw next week. Mysterio VS MVP was alright, but I feel like MVP forgot some of the cues. Either way, good start for MVP’s return and a good win for Mysterio’s seemingly last run.

Aleister winning his squash match to then give that promo about changing strategies was pretty good. I still feel like Aleister should be joining Joe and Kevin against Rollins and his team down the line. Murphy & Rollins defending and retaining those titles against Joe and KO was pretty interesting, but I really loved how the whole bit about checking if the AOP would stay out was just so Viking Raiders could get after them. We’re definitely getting an 8 Man Tag at some point, too, given all that. The United States Championship match was a surprise and a really good one. This time it’s fine that Almas wins thanks to Vega, since he already got his clean win over Carrillo at the Rumble. But then Carrillo snapping like that was amazing, I love it. I really hope we still get a US Championship Chamber match.

Becky’s promo showing her confidence was restored was great. It really sells that there is a fresh start for her, as I was hoping. I really liked seeing Charlotte taking on the Kabuki Warriors, and especially seeing that amazing, title/PPV worthy match from Charlotte and Asuka. I don’t know if they’d do this, but what if Charlotte were to challenge the tag team champions per her WrestleMania moment? The Women’s Rumble doesn’t stipulate it has to be a singles championship, does it? And it’d be pretty great if Charlotte got her Grand Slam on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Though, that would bring into question if Becky would be along for the ride again, or someone comes to Raw to be that perfect partner for Charlotte. Oddly enough, I wonder if Charlotte and Sarah Logan could come to an understanding given the gritty fights they’ve had lately.

The brief moment with Street Profits and Kelly Kelly was fun. I do like that Mojo Rawley is bringing some seriousness to the 24/7 Championship, that is the next phase for this title. And while Truth keeps grabbing up short reigns, I do appreciate that this story will now benefit a guy like Riddick Moss, who has been under the radar for quite some time. I do wonder if the other Outlier, Dorian Mak/Dan Matha will be joining Mojo’s line-up so that Mojo becomes the unofficial leader of that team. I think it’d be pretty unique if Mojo also brought that title to the other brands, like NXT or NXT UK. Then Liv VS Lana was mercifully short, though not sure why they had it this late in the show. It’s good that Liv won, she really needs that, and she also needs to get out of this story to get serious. And something something Erick Rowan won another squash match.

Edge was obviously going to be the big moment of the night, given all the recaps of his return and those classic moments from his career. It worked that he’d be the last moment of the night, but WOW what a moment. Just when we were all excited to see Rated RKO get in on the tag division, the moment I thought, “But the titles are stuck in a story, who would these two even face?” is when Orton RKO’d Edge, as we all should’ve guessed. I just didn’t think Orton would go back to his uncomfortably violent phase like he had when he first returned. I suppose this is Edge ending his career on his terms since Orton got to use the ConChairTo on him. But at the same time, Orton VS Edge for that one last match in the Rated R Superstar’s career, that would be some awesome stuff for WrestleMania 36.

My Score: 8.5/10

Just as Fale & Bonza were locked and loaded, they misfire and fall back down! Will they have to shift into spoiler mode in the tournament’s second half? As for the NJPW Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions, do they still have an outside shot at those WTL trophies?

2023 World Tag League, B Block: Yuji Nagata & Minoru Suzuki VS Lance Archer & Alex Zayne!

In a shocking twist, Blue Justice & The Meanest Man in the World are 0-4 this deep into World Tag League! But will Nagata & Suzuki finally make it work at the halfway point? Or will Monster Sauce continue their hot streak and be the only 5-0 team in the entire tournament?

Surprisingly, the Murderhawk Monster doesn’t maul Young Lions at ringside. But perhaps that is because he is saving all his energy for Suzuki. As such, he doesn’t even budge as Suzuki steps into the ring for “KAZE NI NARE~!” The former boss and subordinate stare down, so Nagata and Zayne let them start. The fans cheer as Archer brings out a Suzuki-Gun shirt! Archer then throws the shirt aside as he tells Suzuki, “Tonight, we fight. So you better bring it our I’m gonna knock your teeth out!

Then he STANDING MARIPOSAS! Fans fire up and Zayne drags Nagata up. Zayne puts Nagata in a corner, tags to Archer, and he taunts Suzuki with “You Suck!” Suzuki says shut up, but Archer stomps away on Nagata. Red Shoes counts, Archer lets off and says Suzuki’s next. Suzuki says to still shut up, but Archer snapmares Nagata. Archer continues to taunt Suzuki then he CLUBS away on Nagata’s chest! Cover, TWO!

Archer is mad at Red Shoes, and Suzuki steps in just to flip Archer off. Archer tags Zayne, and scoops him to SLAM him onto Nagata! Cover, TWO! Zayne stays between Nagata and Suzuki, then bumps Nagata off buckles. Zayne ELBOWS Nagata, tags Archer, and Archer CHOPS Nagata! Nagata eggs him on so Archer CHOPS again! Even Zayne felt that one.

Archer whips Suzuki to a corner, ELBOWS him, “Ichi!” Archer keeps moving to ELBOW again! “NI!” Archer keeps going, “SAN!” Hattrick achieved, and then a KNEE DROP! Cover, TWO! Archer ROCKS Suzuki, puts him on the top rope, and then lifts with the inverted crucifix!

But Suzuki fights free! Archer choke grips, but Suzuki breaks free to ROCK Archer! Archer ROCKS Suzuki! Suzuki laughs as they trade forearms back and forth again! Fans rally up, Suzuki keeps laughing, but both men ROCK the other! Fans fire up as Archer and Suzuki stand back up! They egg each other on, and the forearms fly again! They go back and forth, faster and faster! Archer wobbles, Suzuki taunts him, but then the forearms start up again! Suzuki gets the edge but Archer ROCKS him! Suzuki rises right up to ROCK Archer! Both men fall over and the fans are thunderous! Suzuki and Archer crawl, hot tags to Zayne and Nagata!

Now Zayne and Nagata trade forearms! Nagata ROCKS Zayne, KICKS him, and KICKS him! And KICKS again! Zayne ends up in a corner, Nagata fires up and whips corner to corner. BOOT! Zayne fights the clinch, suplexes, but Nagata fights that. Nagata suplexes Zayne, for MAGIC SCREW! And then an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! But into CROSSFACE! Suzuki intercepts Archer into a SLEEPER! Monster Sauce endures stereo submissions! The fans rally, Suzuki keeps adjusting his grip, but Archer fights up! Archer storms over to BOOT Nagata, then he RAMS Suzuki into buckles! Zayne gets the boost, HIP TOSS CANNONBALL!

Archer ELBOWS Nagata down, then Zayne runs in, tilt-o-whirl RANA CANNONBALL for Archer! Fans fire up as Archer gets Zayne, CHOKE SLAM SAULT! SENTON! Cover, TWO!! Nagata survives but Archer BLASTS Suzuki back down! Zayne goes up and gets as lift from Archer, but Suzuki stops the Blackout Swanton! Suzuki DECKS Zayne, Archer knees Suzuki and TOSSES him! But Suzuki gets Archer’s legs! APRON KNEEBAR! Archer endures, Nagata cradles but Zayne smothers it into his own cover, TWO!! Nagata is free again, but Zayne kicks low. Zayne straitjackets but Nagata fights free!

Zayne fires boxing elbows, back elbow, mule kick, only to run into a WHEEL KCIK! SAIDO BRIDGE! MURDER GRANDPAS WIN!!

Winners: Yuji Nagata & Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall (gain 2 points; Monster Sauce earns 0)

The top team finally falls, and it was to the two most grizzled and experienced men in the whole tournament! Suzuki tells Archer & Zayne to still take this thing, and they fist bump as the old Suzuki-Gun theme plays. Will Monster Sauce still burn B Block and head for those trophies?


2023 World Tag League, B Block: Bishamon VS Yota Tsuji & Zandokan Jr!

The IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions shine through as they turn the lights out on LIJ! Will Tsuji & Zando be able to stay afloat in WTL’s second half?

As for Bishamon, Hashi gets the mic first to say, “Oi, Tsuji! How was Bishamon? Was it sweet? Was it spicy? Or maybe salty?” Tsuji walks back to the ring and Hashi lets him have the mic. Tsuji says, “Now that I’ve faced Bishamon, I’ve learned… that you guys are amazing.” Fans cheer that! But Tsuji also knows Bishamon can’t stay like this. He’s sure they’ll make it back to the WTL finals. Tsuij then sends the mic back as he takes his leave, and Hashi thanks him.

Hashi continues to say that he can’t be sure if WTL can get more exciting, but if the fans aren’t already excited, then there’s no way that’ll change. But this win here gets Bishamon one step closer to that threepeat. Hashi brings up the supposed curse that keeps the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions from winning WTL. But he vows that “Gocchan and I will definitely break the curse.” Fans cheer that! Hashi continues to say that as IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, Bishamon will win WTL for a third time in a row, and they’ll do it… IN A FLASH! The Fierce Warrior & Headhunter still have life, but will they have those trophies three years running?


Here are the NEW B Block standings!

“Andrade, you wanna know what really, really makes me mad? It’s when someone likes you comes in here and thinks they can step all over people like me. Well I’m not having it anymore.

Jon Moxley speaks.

“If it turns out that entering this Continental Classic tournament was a bad idea, I won’t find out ’til it’s too late. I’m banged up. Maybe the last four years is finally catching with me, because nobody’s done it anywhere in the world like I do it the last four years. My head hurts, my neck hurts, my back hurts, now my knee hurts. Getting that tingly-ness in my fingers now all the time. I live in pain on a day to day basis like most people couldn’t even imagine. Now on top of that, my head’s not screwed on straight all the time lately. The doctors are prescribing me this medication, that medication.

“And I’m just sick of it all. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off at my body failing me, I’m sick and tired of being depressed, I’m being sick and tired about being pissed about the entire last year. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off. So I’m gonna do the only thing I know how to do, the only thing I’m good at: I’m gonna wrestle my way out of it. I’m gonna fight my way out of it. I’m gonna put every ounce, every drop of sweat and effort and will I have into winning this Continental Classic tournament.

“This kind of thing, this is what AEW was built on, man. Two guys in the ring, the best wrestlers in the world, giving it their all, feeling that feeling when you’ve given every ounce of yourself in the ring, and pushing the limits, and pushing the boundaries, and making people stand up and go ‘Oh my God!’ What’d I just see?’ Feeling that connection with an audience that loves wrestling as much as we do. That is what AEW is about. Somebody’s gotta step up and win this tournament, and show the world exactly what AEW is, exactly what All Elite Wrestling can be! And that’s just gonna have to be me.

“Because anybody can say what they want but I’m the Ace of the World, b*tch, and that’s just the way it is. And there is nobody in this tournament that can do anything to me worse than what I deal with on a daily basis. Nothing they can do to me that’s worse than fighting the demons that I fight on a daily basis. If you think I’m shot, if you think my trigger’s been pulled, if you think I’m ripe for the picking, please, please, take your shot.” The Maniac is going to go until he can’t go any more, will El Toro Blanco look to take that shot this Wednesday?


Abadon VS Kiera Hogan!

With title chases never stopping, the Undead Girl and the Hottest Flame are fighting to get ahead. Who wins here to move up in the rankings towards the champions of AEW?

The bell rings, Kiera is wary of Abadon, and the two circle. Abadon corners Kiera, run sin, but Kiera dodges. Kiera SHOTGUNS Abadon down and fans fire up! Kiera runs in but Abadon sends her into buckles! Abadon fires off clothesline after clothesline, but lets off as the ref counts. Abadon runs in but Kiera avoids the boot to then KICK the legs out! Kiera runs, and she HIP ATTACKS Abadon against ropes! Kiera then snapmares, Abadon ducks the buzzsaw but not the SUPERKICK! Kiera runs Around the World to BOOT WASH! Cover, TWO!

Winner: Abadon, by pinfall

Like the Nightmare Before Christmas, Abadon is bringing the scary to the merry season! But will Abadon earn a championship match as a Christmas gift to herself?

Wait! The lights go out! And when the lights come back, JULIA HART is here! Abadon turns around to see her, and the TBS Champion smiles. The lights go out again, and when they come back again, Julia’s gone. Abadon shrieks into the night, will this be like Jason VS Freddy for the title?


Backsatge interview with Samoa Joe.

Alex Marvez says the last time we saw Joe, he was furious that MJF accepted a tag team challenge from “The Devil of AEW.” Joe says why wouldn’t he be? But then someone shouts “SAMOA JOOOE~!” In rolls Roderick Strong & The Kingdom. Roddy tells Joe that Roddy is willing to forgive Joe for trying to end his career with a broken neck not just once but twice. And he knows Joe has his world title match with Max, but c’mon, this is clearly a trap! MJF is the Devil! But hey, Roddy’s best friend “ADAAAM~!” likes Joe and thinks of him as a friend. So as Adam Cole’s best friend, that makes Roddy a friend to Joe.

So hey, Wednesday, it’s a set-up. Those goons will beat the crap out of Joe! And MJF isn’t even here right now! He’s probably plotting how they’re gonna do it! The Kingdom says yeah, Roddy’s right. So just listen to him, okay? Joe chuckles and leaves. Does Joe think they’re joking? Between Joe and “The Devil,” who will have the last laugh on Dynamite?


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Andrade El Idolo VS Daniel Garcia!

We saw this showdown before when CJ Perry was recruiting clients, and we saw which way that went. But then will history repeat itself? Or will Red Death ruin Andrade’s start in the Blue League?

While no “seconds” are allowed, meaning even manager CJ must return to the back, Daddy Magic found a loophole by joining commentary. He still disapproves of the Garcia dance. Anyway, the bell rings, we’re on the clock, and the two circle. Fans rally up as the two tie up, Garcia rolls Andrade up, ONE! Garcia says he almost had Andrade, but Andrade just smirks. The two reset, tie up again, and Andrade headlocks. Andrade holds on tight, but Garcia powers up to power out. But Andrade runs Garcia over! Fans rally and duel, cheer and jeer, and Andrade CHOPS Garcia! Andrade whips but Garcia stops himself to whip Andrade!

Andrade goes Spider-Man in the ropes to tranquilo! Fans fire up for that, but then Garcia puts his dukes up. Andrade says no dance, but then Garcia clamps on a SLEEPER! Andrade RAMS Garcia into buckles, goes up the ropes, and he CROSSBODIES! Garcia staggers up, Andrade CHOPS him! Andrade whips, but Garcia reverses. Andrade goes up and over, then dropkicks the dropdown! Garcia goes to the apron, and Andrade PLANCHAS! Fans fire up, Andrade puts Garcia in, and he covers, ONE!! Garcia hangs tough but Andrade brings him up. Andrade gives some Latino Heat but Garcia wrenches out. Andrade ROCKS Garcia, but Garcia hits a SHIN BREAKER!

Garcia DRAGON SCREWS the leg, GROUDN DRAGON SCREWS it, then basement dropkicks! Fans fire up, Garcia covers, ONE!! ANKLE LOCK! Andrade scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Garcia lets go, Andrade bails out, and Andrade shakes out the bad leg. Garcia goes out, Menard likes what he sees, but Andrade kicks low! Andrade RAMS Garcia into the apron, but Garcia kicks low and CLUBS him! Then RAMS him into railing! Garcia grabs at Andrade but Andrade gets in the ring. Garcia hurries to KNEE Andrade down, covers, ONE! Andrade CHOPS! Andrade whips to a corner, but Garcia BOOTS him back!

Garcia goes up, Andrade CLOBBERS Garcia to the floor! Fans fire up and Andrade paces while Garcia is dazed, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Andrade paces, walking off the pain in his leg, while Garcia clutches his neck and shoulder. The ring count climbs, Andrade goes out to commentary to have one of their WOOOOO energy drinks! “WOO~!” Andrade then makes his way around to fetch Garcia, and he SMACKS Garcia off the steel steps! Andrade drags Garcia back up to put in the ring, and he has a cocky cover. ONE, but Andrade stalks Garcia to ropes. Andrade kicks Garcia around, pie faces him, and eggs him on. Garcia huffs and puffs, then CHOPS back! And CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Garcia whips, Andrade reverses to then CLOBBER Garcia!

Andrade clamps onto Garcia with a headlock and grinds him down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Garcia fights up out of a headlock to SAIDO! Fans fire up while both men are down! Garcia pushes up, Menard says this has been Garcia’s best match so far! And zero dancing! Garcia stands, he counter punches Andrade, and counters again! Then he dodges, fires off haymakers and fast hands, the ref counts but Garcia lets off. The fans are thunderous as Garcia runs to BOOT Andrade, then put him up top! Garcia drags Andrade into the Tree of Woe, CLUBS him, then stands on the corner to punch away on the legs!

Garcia drags Andrade into a waistlock, drags him back up, but Andrade ELBOWS Garcia! Garcia holds on, so Andrade throws more heavy elbows! Garcia ducks to CHOP!

Fans fire up as Andrade hits Dos Amigos! Andrade gives us some Latino Heat, but Garcia wrenches out! SLEEPER!!

Garcia squeezes tight but Andrade throws elbows. Andrade is fere, but Garcia hops back on! SLEEPER! Andrade carries Garcia as a backpack as he climbs the corner! Garcia CLUBS Andrade, shifts around, and the two brawl. Andrade has Garcia now, for a SUPERPLEX! And then he still rolls through to restart! Uno Amigo! Dos Amigos! THREE AMIGOS! Cover, TWO!!

But Andrade grabs Garcia’s head! But Garcia rolls through!

Andrade wrenches out, hammerlocks and LA SOMBRA DDT!! Cover, Andrade wins!!

Winner: Andrade El Idolo, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Garcia earns 0)

Andrade’s first tournament match is his first win! Garcia is 0-2, Menard says this is a hole they’ll have to dig out of. Andrade still shows Garcia respect, but is Garcia going to be mathematically eliminated before long?


Willie Mack speaks.

“See, Wardlow, I know you’ve been going through a lot of things these past few weeks, putting your hands on people. But one thing you know about me is you don’t put your hands on my friends. Y’see, this is a person who I’ve tagged with and won multiple tag team championships in other promotions with. So what I’ma have to do, is I’ma have to reach out and touch you. So next week, we’re gonna have to do the damn thing in the ring, so guess what? You better pack a lunch, because I’m a big boy, and I’m a big meal to try to eat.” Mack is standing up for AR Fox, but will the Return of the Mack end up Wardlow’s newest victim?


The Kingdom w/ Roderick Strong VS The Iron Savages w/ Jacked Jameson!

Roddy shouts at “DASHAAAA!” to stop, and he has the music cut. First thing’s first, Roddy wants to say to his NEW best friend by proxy, “SAMOAAA Joe.” Listen, Roddy told him the truth back there. They roll down the ring as Roddy says MJF is the Devil and Joe will find out soon. And then those three dweebs in the ring, they ain’t gonna #NeckTheHalls, no. The Kingdom’s gonna beat their… AAAAASS! And Roddy wants to dedicate this to his best friend, whether he wants Roddy to or not, ADAAAM! “Get ’em, fellas!” The Kingdom fire off on The Savages as the bell rings!

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.

Lexi Nair is with All Ego, who has requested this time. Ethan says that ever since losing out on the AEW World Championship to MJF, in his home country of Canada, Ethan has had to regroup and refocus. He’s gotten into the best physical shape of his life, he has been in ROH building up win after win. And so, here Ethan is to make a challenge and check off a bucket list thing. AEW is going back to Canada, and Ethan wants to be THE biggest name in Canadian wrestling. So therefore, to be the King of Canada, he needs his crown. That crown is currently on someone else’s head.

So in Montreal, 1v1, we find out who the best Canadian wrestler truly is, as Ethan calls out KENNY OMEGA! Will The Cleaner give All Ego that opportunity?


AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Martinez.

The Babe with the Power tells Mercedes, “our history goes further back than you probably even realize. I’ve been such a fan, and I’ve admired you so much.” The OG Badass says the first time they met, Willow “was this night little pretty Willow.” Willow says she is constantly disappointed in Mercedes’ behavior as of late, and in herself because she hasn’t been able to beat Mercedes. Mercedes asks how many times must Willow dance her way into Mercedes’ business? Isn’t Willow tired of being everyone’s hero? Next time they meet, Willow will need to be saved. Because Mercedes will dance and stomp all over her.


Malakai Black & Buddy Matthews VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Brody took the lead in the Blue League, and Julia has called out her next target. Will the Dark Father and Aussie Juggernaut make sure that the House Always Wins? Or will the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin finally stake a claim in the AEW Tag Division?

The teams sort out, Buddy starts against Sydal, and the two circle. They knuckle lock, Buddy trips and covers, ONE as Sydal gets an arm up! Buddy pushes it down, ONE as the other arm comes up.

Cover, House of Black wins!

Winner: The House of Black, by pinfall

Another Collision, another sweep for the Dark Father and his family. The lights go down, but why? The House is already here. But here comes FTR! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood storm down to the ring bathed in the magenta light! Malakai tells them that before they do anything, Malakai assumes that they’re both here because they are joining the House. Dax chuckles but Malakai says he is a family man. And we know it’s been weeks. The only people in AEW that have been here for the both of them has been The House of Black. Malakai’s done a lot of things, but not once has he told a lie.

The fans chant “HOUSE OF BLACK!” and Malakai drops the mic for FTR to take. Dax picks it up, but Buddy KNEES him down! Cash goes after Buddy but he gets mugged! Cash still throws hands, but Buddy CURB STOMPS him down! Buddy then drags Dax up, and he makes Dax watch as Malakai sets Cash up! BLACK MASS!! Dax is seething but he can’t get free of Buddy’s chinbar, and Malakai says see! Not one single person has come to help them! And was Malakai right or what? No one is coming to help. Dax flips Malakai off, so he gets BLACK MASS!! Is this going to be the end for FTR in AEW once and for all?


Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette is with “Timeless Toni,” bringing up last week as Storm accepting the AEW Women’s World Championship, and Storm says yes, she knows, she has no time for these prepared questions. And where is “that man who usually does my interviews? He has so much more poise.” And she isn’t even finished doing her hair because they were too busy with some blonde floosy! And yes, Storm did accept her championship last week, Renee was a dear for presenting that. But Storm was unceremoniously interrupted by Skye Blue!

Storm tells Skye that if she had any advice at all, it’d be to walk backwards! The only time anyone has anything nice to say about Skye, it’s in reference to her bottom! Is Storm supposed to be worried because Skye’s all spooky now? With that little thing on her head? Storm used to wear hats and be spooky. BOO. See? Not that hard. Interrupt her, fine. She can be first to challenge for “this little huckleberry right here.” But until then, chin up, chest out, and oh… she’s bare foot. Sorry. She takes RENEE’S shoe to throw around! Toni is timeless, but will the Storm strike down Chicago Skye?


Skye Blue speaks.

Well first, she sighs. “Toni, I have met you through every single one of your phases, but this little midlife crisis your going through is the most pathetic I have seen thus far. But you haven’t met this Skye Blue. So bring your little butler, bring your little blond bimbo, and whatever 1940s black ‘n’ white crap you got up that robe, because none of it is going to stop me from taking that championship from you. So I’m gonna have my chin up, my chest out, and I’m gonna shove your shoe right up your ass.” Strong words from a fired up challenger, will she be the new leading lady of AEW?


Christian Cage speaks.

Captain Charisma says, “I don’t think it’s any secret to anybody how far back my relationship with Adam Copeland goes. I think I more or less tolerated Adam. He was a hanger-on, he wanted to be like me, which is why he’s always tried to steal my spotlight wherever we’ve gone.” And that held Christian back. Edge got what he never got. He was pushed all the way to the bottom when they broke up as a tag team. But Christian willed himself to the top. he is here to be the best, anyone else is expendable. And Edge wants to take away everything Christian’s built up the last three years? Christian has nothing to prove to himself, but Edge has everything to prove to Christian.

This time, Christian is what everyone talks about. Whether it’s Dynamite, Rampage or Collision, Christian nis on the tip of everyone’s tongue. He is the Face of TNT, the Face of AEW, then, now and forever! Christian has always been better than Edge, and in Montreal, everyone will finally know. But will “The Patriarch” be the one in for a shock when things get Rated R on Wednesday?


El Hijo Del Vikingo VS Kip Sabian!

The AAA Mega Champion is coming off a big trios win last night on Rampage, but Mr. Superbad just thinks of him as the most overrated wrestler on the AEW roster. Will Kip put his money where his mouth is? Or will he be on the losing end of this Collision?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. They tie up, Kip cording holds but Vikingo whips. Kip arm-drags and holds on, but Vikingo goes up and over! Kip just changes up cording holds, arm-drags, but then Vikingo pushes him. Kip arm-drags again and keeps the hold, wagging his finger. Then Kip CHOPS, Vikingo CHOPS back! Vikingo throws knees, goes up and out to HOTSHOT Kip! Then Vikingo springboards, but Kip slides out., Vikingo keeps moving, but he fakes Kip out! Fans fire up, Kip runs in but Vikingo dodges to HEEL KCIK! Kip goes to a corner, Vikingo whips but Kip reverses.

Viking slips out to the apron, Kip hits buckles, then Vikingo GAMANGIRIS! Vikingo goes up and around and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Things keep moving, Vikingo CORKSCREW RANAS Kip out! Then Vikingo DIVES into a GAMANGIRI! Kip intercepts Vikingo and talks some trash. Then Kip ARABIAN PRESSES to take Vikingo down! Fans fire up and Collision goes picture in picture.

Kip drags Vikingo up, puts him in the ring, then drags him up to ROCK him with a forearm. Kip bumps Vikingo off buckles, then whips corner to corner hard! Vikingo falls back, Kip flexes, and Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Kip drags Vikingo into a mounted armlock, but Vikingo endures. Kip BITES Vikingo’s hand! The ref misses that, but Vikingo fights to the ROPEBREAK! Kip lets go, then stands Vikingo up to ELBOW him to the corner. Kip stomps Vikingo again and again, then sits him down. Kip backs up to then run in again, CANNONBALL! Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Vikingo is hanging in there but Kip keeps cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Kip ROCKS Vikingo with forearm after forearm. Fans boo, Kip whips, but Vikingo rebounds, gets under, and DREAMCAST KICKS! Kip flops against ropes and fans rally with Vikingo. Vikingo runs in at the corner, but stops as Kip moves. Kip returns, into a scoop and torture rack! Argentine Flip KNEE STRIKE! Like an inverted GTS! Kip falls, Vikingo drags him to a drop zone and goes up the ropes from the outside. INSIDE-OUT PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Kip survives and he manages to smile about it. Vikingo drags Kip back to another drop zone, but Kip goes after Vikingo as he climbs!

Kip climbs up after Vikingo, fans fire up and Vikingo throws body shots. Vikingo HEADBUTTS, Kip flops to the apron. But then Kip springboards u to SUPER STEINER! Kip hurries to scoop, FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Kip is stunned as Vikingo survives! Kip drags Vikingo up again, waistlocks, then torture racks. DEATHLY- NO, Vikngo flips free, dodges and SUPERMAN PUNCHES! Vikingo goes up as Kip bails out, to tightrope walk TORNILLO!!! Direct hit and the fans lose their minds! Vikingo puts Kip back in, runs corner to corner, METEORA! And then Vikingo goes right up, for the 630 SENTON!!! Cover, Vikingo wins!!

Winner: El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

The AAA Mega Champion cools off Kip’s hot take, because no one who can do what Vikingo did in this match is “overrated!” But Vikingo does show Kip a sign of respect by offering a handshake. The fans cheer to shake hands, but Kip says no! Will Kip ever get over himself? Will Vikingo earn even more gold in the New Year?


Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Lexi is with the Limitless One, and says last time, he mentioned “him.” Just who is “him?” But then in walks Shane Taylor, because he knows who “him” is! Because Keith ain’t dumb enough to look past Shane. But last year’s match didn’t solve anything, so this year, they give the people the fight they really wanna see. Keith VS Shane, 1v1, Final Battle, so Shane can beat Keith’s ass in front of the entire world! Keith thinks on that a moment. Challenge accepted. And see #TAIGASTYLE later, too. Then in two weeks, in Garland, Texas, will that truly be the Pretty Boy Killers’ Final Battle?


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi and CJ are outside Andrade’s office, and notes that Andrade’s first win was impressive. UH OH, here comes Miro! Miro says move, CJ says no! Miro can’t go in there! She knows he thinks things will go poorly, but when Miro chose his god over her, she has to prove herself. By Andrade winning, it will help CJ. So if Miro wants to go in there, fine, he’s a grown man. But if there is any love left for CJ, do not do this. Do not lay a hand on her client. Please? Miro says if His God was still with him, he would be in this tournament and have ripped Andrade’s spine out already! Miro then caresses CJ’s face, and says he won’t touch her client. She has his word.

Miro storms off, but what will The Redeemer do to prove himself worthy of gold in the background of the Continental Classic?


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Bryan Danielson VS Eddie Kingston!

The American Dragon was the first entrant named to this tournament, but could not compete in it until now. And he doesn’t think The Mad King is ready if one loss takes away all the confidence he had going into this. Will Bryan just pour fuel on that fire? Or will Eddie be the one to earn his first points tonight?

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The fans fire up as Bryan and Eddie stare down. They slowly circle and approach. They feel things out, knuckle lock, but then Eddie tests things with a kick. Bryan stays back, they reset, and Eddie guards a kick. Bryan keeps trying but Eddie pushes back. Bryan uses ropes as a defense and the fans boo. Bryan smirks as he and Eddie reset, and they test the waters again. Bryan gives kicks, Eddie walks it off, and they feel things out again. Eddie fires off hands, clinches Bryan on the ropes, and the ref counts. Eddie puts Bryan in a corner, the ref counts but Bryan turns things around.

Bryan lets off slowly, but then CHOPS! Eddie just snarls while fans “WOO~!” Eddie storms up on Bryan, they feel things out, and Eddie tries some kicks now. Bryan also kicks, neither man lands a strong shot yet. They end up in a corner, Bryan turns things around on Eddie, then he CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS Bryan down! Fans fire up as Eddie stares Bryan down again. Bryan stands, he and Eddie feel things out again, and fans are behind Eddie more than they are Bryan. The two grapple, Eddie rolls but Bryan facelocks. They go to ropes, the ref counts, and Eddie fights up. The ref gets in between but Bryan KICKS Eddie!

Bryan fires off fast hands but then so does Eddie! Bryan kicks, but then Eddie kicks the bad arm! Bryan falls back, Eddie storms up but Bryan trips Eddie! Eddie goes for knuckle locks but Eddie’s leg guard keeps him back. Bryan KICKS a leg, KICKS again, then KICKS again! Bryan KICKS Eddie in the back! Bryan sits Eddie up to CHOP! Eddie eggs him on! Bryan CHOPS again, but Eddie brings the straps down! Bryan CHOPS again! Eddie is stinging but he grits his teeth. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And then snapmares to cover, ONE!! Bryan keeps on Eddie with a motorcycle stretch but Eddie endures.

Fans rally, Eddie fights up, but Bryan digs his forehead into Eddie’s shoulder blades. Eddie still turns things around to have Bryan in the stretch! Bryan endures, powers up, and waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Eddie stands up but then falls back over! Eddie goes to the apron, shakes out the stars, but Bryan runs in to BOOT him! Eddie holds onto ropes! Bryan runs up again to BOOT! Eddie still holds on, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! Eddie swings, Bryan ducks to dropkick the legs out! Bryan then builds speed to slide, but Eddie avoids him! SAIDO to the floor! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Collision goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both men, and both men are somehow still in this. Eddie shakes out his arms as he sits up, and he drags Bryan up. Eddie CHOPS Bryan, then follows him around the way. Eddie CHOPS Bryan against railing! Eddie puts Bryan in the ring, stalks him, but Bryan bails out the other side. Eddie pursues, and CHOPS! And HEADBUTTS! Bryan staggers away, Eddie follows, and Eddie CHOPS Bryan against commentary! And again! And again! Bryan flounders, Eddie puts him in the ring, and Eddie storms up in the corner. Eddie stands Bryan up to MACHINE GUN CHOP! Bryan sits down, Eddie CHOPS him again!

Bryan throws body shots, then he HEADBUTTS Eddie down! Eddie comes back to CHOP! Eddie CHOPS again, and Collision returns to single picture. Eddie CHOPS one more time, climbs up after Bryan, but Bryan again resists the suplex! Fans fire up as Bryan throws down elbows again and again! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan HEADBUTTS again and Eddie staggers away. Bryan adjusts, MISSILE DROPKICKS, and down goes Eddie!

Eddie flounders to a corner and the fans rally up. Bryan huffs and puffs and rises up. Eddie also stands, he CHOPS Bryan! Bryan throws body shots! Eddie CHOPS! Bryan fires body shots! CHOP! Bryan KICKS and KICKS, but Eddie CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! EXPLO- TAKEDOWN! Bryan has an arm, then grabs at the crossface! Eddie resists, fights around, but Bryan still gets the LEBELL LOCK!! Fans rally for Eddie as he endures, fights around, and reaches out! Bryan rolls Eddie back, and has the LEBELL LOCK again!

Bryan aims again, to KICK! Eddie shoves Bryan, so Bryan KICKS again! Eddie CLUBS Bryan, Bryan KICKS, KICKS and KICKS! We get the five minute warning as Eddie throws hands! Bryan has the leg again, BRIDGING BACK SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Eddie escapes but Bryan says time to kick his head in!! DRAGON STOMPS!! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan runs out of gas but somehow Eddie is still in this!

Bryan and Eddie crawl to each other, Eddie FLIPS BRYAN OFF! “This is Awesome!” as Eddie rises. Bryan aims from a corner, BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Cover, BRYAN WINS!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Eddie earns 0)

THIS is the fight Bryan wanted from Eddie! But in the end, Bryan is the one to win the fight! Will Bryan keep on going through his next four fights? Eddie is technically still ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Champion, but with an 0-2 start, has he all but lost them both?

My Thoughts:

A great Collision, with awesome Continental Classic matches, but also matches they kayfabe’d as “standby” to try and kayfabe the tournament matches not going closer to their 20 minute time limits. A weird move to me but it’s not like we haven’t seen such a move by American televised pro-wrestling before. And surprisingly great stuff out of Vikingo VS Kip, but that was partly the point. Kip calls Vikingo overrated, then gets beat by Vikingo to show how legit Vikingo is, and there could even be a rivalry in the making or something. Kip still has Butcher & Blade to call on, that trio could take on Vikingo, Komander & Penta at some point.

Good match from Abadon and Kiera, with a really good win for Abadon. Julia showing up to basically call Abadon out was an interesting move but I also like it. Different kinds of spooky wrestlers are going to collide, this will be a good program for them both. And very good promos from both Storm and Skye to hype up their title match this Wednesday. Renee definitely looked like she was struggling to not break during Storm’s part, that’s how good Storm is. And I would think Storm retains because she’ll have Luther and Mariah May ringside. And good promo from Willow and Mercedes to set up their match, that’ll be really good stuff.

Good promo from Willie Mack to call out Wardlow but I would think Wardlow beats him to continue his dominance. Good promo from Christian to add some final hype onto the TNT Championship match. And good promo from Ethan Page to not just plug his time in ROH, but also to call out Kenny Omega. Ethan VS Omega is going to be really good, but that probably ends up being Omega’s win to build momentum going into the next round against Don Callis Family. But it also just makes me think Tony Khan still doesn’t get how ROH is supposed to matter. Ethan is in the middle of stuff with Tony Nese and he’s dividing his attention by wanting to be King of Canadian Wrestlers? What?

But thankfully, we did get a promo from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor to finally set up that match. And I do appreciate that it will be part of Final Battle since that’s where this feud started. Anything to make up for poor ticket sales and no ROH World Championship. Or even tag team championship at this point, right? The Kingdom called out MJF but MJF hasn’t taken the time to respond, he has The Devil of AEW to worry about. Good promo from Joe with Roddy & The Kingdom before The Kingdom beat The Iron Savages. Roddy was extra dramatic in his floundering out of the ring this time, can’t wait to see whether he and The Kingdom are still in on the whole Devil goon squad stuff.

Very good tag match from House of Black VS Daniels & Sydal but of course the House won. And good promo with FTR that then turned into a beatdown. That tag match is definitely going to be big for like Winter is Coming. And then, the Continental Classic. Great opening match from Claudio VS Brody, with a great win for Brody to lead the way in this block. And just as I expected, while we got awesome showings in the other matches, Garcia and Eddie each lost to Andrade and Bryan. Good promo for Miro wanting after Andrade but showing mercy for CJ’s sake. That feud probably waits until after the tournament, assuming Andrade isn’t a finalist. Worlds End would be a good PPV for Miro VS Andrade to happen as part of this ongoing story.

I also appreciated Eddie saying he doesn’t want to do cold open promos when he has a big match to get ready for. Doing coverage like I do, I don’t want to fall behind on the broadcast already trying to keep up with what people are saying at the very start like that. Even Claudio did a short promo because he also just wants to have his match, so they really should just have the matches and save promos for later in the night.

My Score: 8.8/10
