SmackDown is AWESOME!

Because it opens with the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, Miz TV! The Miz makes his way out to the ring, in a much better mood than he was last week after losing to Kofi Kingston. Fans are divided given those actions, but Miz welcomes us all to the show all the same. “Since last Friday on SmackDown and the incident with Kofi Kingston, poeple have said I’ve changed.” Miz says he was just having a bad day. Everyone has a bad day. Kofi’s positive energy was just annoying to him, because sometimes you just don’t want to smile. Do not cheer, because Miz knows he let his temper get the better of him. So Miz says to Kofi, “I am sorry.”

But he wants us to understand, he has been going through a lot. The Fiend threatened his daughter, Monroe Sky. And when Miz went to take the title away from Bray Wyatt, he failed to get that shot. But the one bright spot is the return of a friend, a brother and the Guru of Greatness, the biggest guest in MizTV history… JOHN MORRISON! And he even has his old theme and pyro back! Morrison joins Miz in the ring and the two bro hug. They take their seats and fans cheer, “Welcome Back! Welcome Back!” Miz is fired up, too, to have Morrison back. Miz says this a lot, but this truly is AWESOME. Miz, Morrison and the WWE. The greatest tag team of the 21st century is reunited! And for those who forgot about those days, Miz has the “sizzle reel.”

“I am John Morrison!” The Shaman of Sexy, the Guru of Greatness and the crown prince of parkour pro-wrestling fusion, Morrison did insane things as a three-time Intercontinental Champion and five-time Tag Team Champion. The Friday Night Delight is back on Fridays!

From the bottom of Miz’s heart, he welcomes Morrison back. Morrison loves being back under the lights with Miz and isn’t sure what else to say. WWE Chronicle was leading up to this, a new Rumble entrance and everything. It was going to be epic. But then, when Morrison saw what his friend was going through, and them talking on The Bump, it was more important to be there for Miz than for the Rumble. Morrison is back already, and after what happened with Kofi, Morrison realized… “That I’m disappointed.” In the fans. Miz has one bad day and they turn on him? Miz doesn’t want to talk about this so Morrison will. Miz has worked harder for 15 years than anyone else on this roster. No one thought he’d make it, but Miz worked his way into being a champion! And still, he’s only Papa Miz’s 4th favorite wrestler? No, 5th, Kofi is above Miz.

But one bad day and a short temper, all of that hard work is ignored. But fans don’t get it. Miz doesn’t do this for his dad, or even himself, but for the fans! The fans don’t appreciate it because they’ve never been in the ring. What would fans chant if these “turd cutters” like themselves were in the ring? Miz tries to calm Morrison down but AWWWWW Indy~! The New Day is here! Big E and Kofi have pancakes and mics and want everyone to be patient. Who are Miz and Morrison trying to fool? Who who who? They’re trying to say it’s the fans’ fault? And they don’t buy that apology. Miz isn’t that good as an actor. He isn’t even good enough to be the back end of a Human Centipede. Nasty. Kofi would’ve respected Miz more if he would’ve stopped at “I had a bad day.”

But all this crying and whining, that’s too much. Stopping at “I had a bad day,” that would’ve been respectable. Miz respects that Kofi was THE WWE Champion for six months. The most prestigious title in the entire company for half a year. But then it took six seconds to lose it. And that Kofi chooses to smile and ignore that he didn’t go after Brock Lesnar right after. That’s something to “respect.” Well it was 8 seconds, not 6. And Miz is changing. Based on what Miz has said with these comments, Miz is changing from Cool Miz to Obnoxious Miz. That means that the people are right: You suck. But enough talk, time for a rematch! Will Kofi get Miz again? Or will Miz turn things around to actually be in a good mood?

 

Kofi Kingston w/ Big E VS The Miz w/ John Morrison!

SmackDown returns and Big E and Morrison are on commentary while the match begins. Kofi and Miz tie up and go around and end up in a corner. Kofi powers out but Miz puts him in another corner. Kofi slips out to kick then back off. Morrison defends that this is still the same Miz as always, it’s the fans that have changed.

Kofi has fans rallying as Big E says that the New Day’s 7-time outdoes the 5-time Morrison has. Miz knees Kofi low and clubs him down. Miz brings Kofi up to whip but Kofi ducks and dodges to leap. But Miz blocks the flip only to get rolled up! TWO, and Kofi whips. Miz reverses and knees low! The kitchen sink takes Kofi down but fans are still divided. Miz runs and basement BOOTS Kofi down! Cover, TWO, but Miz clamps on with a chinlock. Kofi endures and fans rally up. Miz holds on tight but Kofi powers out. Miz runs Kofi over and glares at the fans. Things speed up, Kofi leaps up and over to back elbow! Big E is fired up as Kofi throws Miz out. Kofi builds speed to fake Miz out! Miz scowls as Kofi waits.

Fans rally for Kofi and Kofi stands first. Miz stands for Kofi to CHOP him down! And then dropkick! Kofi runs to leap and lariat! Fans fire up as Kofi hits the NEW~ DAY~ Boom Drop! Kofi aims from a corner and fans clap along, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Miz rises, Kofi spins but no Trouble, code breaker to the knee! Miz has the leg but Kofi kicks him away. Kofi runs at Miz but Miz dodges. Kofi goes up and up and crossbodies! Cover, TWO! Miz kicks low for a basement DDT! Cover, TWO! Kofi survives but Morrison has confidence in Miz.

Miz runs corner to corner to hit a big knee! And then again for another knee! Kofi kicks the A-List Lariat away! Kofi climbs up but Miz chop blocks him out of the sky! FIGURE FOUR! Kofi endures, flails, and reaches for ropes! Fans rally as Miz cranks on the foot, but Kofi gets the ROPEBREAK! Kofi is free and flops out of the ring but Miz scuffs Big E on the way out. Big E is mad but Miz puts Kofi in. Big E gets in Miz’s face, Morrison PARKOUR LEAPS onto Big E! Kofi is mad, he gets caught in the FINALE! Cover, Miz wins!!

Winner: The Miz, by pinfall

The Guru of Greatness gives Miz a great assist! Will the combination of Miz and Morrison once again be AWESOME?

 

It’s a new episode of the Firefly Fun House!

“Psst. Hey. Fireflies. C’mere. Don’t be scared.” Closer. Closer. Bray Wyatt wants to tell them something. “I love you.” YOWIE WOWIE that felt good to say. Because love is so special! But not everyone deserves love. That means you, Daniel Bryan. The opposite of love is how “he” feels about Bryan. And Bray can’t blame him. Bryan’s been real naughty. Bryan is in a heap of trouble at the Royal Rumble. First, he just wanted Bryan to remember. The days when Bryan ruined the Wyatt Family. And then, The Fiend wanted to change Bryan. By pulling out his hair. But Bryan wanting to take the title away from them, now The Fiend just wants to hurt Bryan. Okay bye~! See you in Houston! Love you~! Not Bryan, though. Will Bryan come to feel the opposite of love for Bray Wyatt, too?

 

Fire & Desire are focused.

At least, Sonya Deville is. She will support Mandy Rose tonight. is Mandy ready? Um, Mandy? Right, sorry. Yes, she is ready. But hold on, she has something to take care of first. Okay, see you ringside. Mandy pulls out a gift box, and takes a peek. It seems to be what she wanted, but what is it? And who is it for?

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias.

Who Wants to Walk With Elias?! Evansville does! Well then, Elias has a song titled “The Road to the Rumble, so clap along.” They do and he plays. “Roman Reigns winning the Rumble. Not if Elias has anything to say. See, I got nothing against the Big Dog. He’s gonna lose like Randy, AJ and Ricochet. Let’s not forget, about Erick Rowan. Whatever’s in that cage, it can escape. It’s gotta be pretty horrifying to look at. Could it be worse than a Lana-Lashley sex tape? Probably not. Brock Lesnar thinks the roster is unworthy~. He made that much clear. Well, Brock, it’s easy to hide behind that opinion. Especially given the fact that, you’re never here! How does Elias compare to a guy like Brock? Well for one, I’ve got a personality. And unlike him, I’m not afraid to talk. So when I beat him for the title, oh I’ll gladly show Brock the door. But first when it comes to the Royal Rumble, I’m going to show ’em what WWE stands for.” Thank you for Walking With Elias!

 

Tucker Knight knows how Otis Dozovic feels.

But he has to let Mandy Rose go. The Rumble is coming! Oh wait here is Mandy now. Tucker doesn’t want to deal with her but Mandy is here to apologize for what Dolph Ziggler did to the fruitcake. this is an apology to Otis and Mama Dozovic. It’s a blue “I’m sorry” cake! Mandy hurries off for her match, but Otis seems to accept the apology. Is there still a spark there between the Golden Goddess and Dozer?

 

Mandy Rose w/ Sonya Deville VS Alexa Bliss w/ Nikki Cross!

Someone check Corey Graves’ pulse, he might’ve died and gone to heaven. The Golden Goddess and the Sassy Goddess square off to see who is more divine! Plus, it will help prove which duo is more worthy of going after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Who takes one step closer to facing the Kabuki Warriors on this Road to the Rumble?

The bell rings and the goddesses circle. They tie up, Mandy puts Alexa in the corner. She lets up but then gives a pie face! Alexa glares as Mandy eggs her on. They tie up again, Alexa headlocks but Mandy powers out. They bump shoulders but Mandy doesn’t budge. Mandy pushes Alexa around but Alexa grins before she SLAPS back! Alexa bumps Mandy off buckles and stomps a mudhole in! Alexa backs off to egg Mandy on. Then she baits her into a drop toehold and another SLAP! Alexa brings Mandy up but Mandy tackles her into a corner! And rams her shoulder in over and over! Mandy backs off at the ref’s count, but Alexa puts her on the apron. Alexa dodges the shoulder to SLAP Mandy again! Sonya checks on Mandy while fans fire up for Alexa. Alexa wrecks Mandy with a dropkick!

Alexa puts Mandy back in as Sonya protests, but then Sonya gets on the apron. Nikki runs over, Sonya kicks Nikki. Alexa boots Sonya but Mandy gives Alexa a Knee from a Rose! Cover, TWO, so Mandy rains down rights in frustration. Mandy soaks up the cheers and jeers before she chokes Alexa on the ropes! Mandy lets up to snapmare and chinlock Alexa. Alexa endures as Mandy thrashes her around and fights her way up. Alexa fights out and arm-drags Mandy away. Mandy and Alexa both boot! Then both SLAP! Mandy kicks again, underhooks but Alexa powers out, double clotheslines take them both down! Sonya and Nikki rally for each of their friends, but Alexa is the one who rallies on Mandy! Counter SLAP and a DIVINE RIGHT! Then a basement dropkick! Fans are thunderous for Insult2Injury!

But wait, Heavy Machinery is heading to the ring?! Otis has the cake! Mandy catches Alexa off guard with the roll-up, Mandy wins!!

Winner: Mandy Rose, by pinfall

It wasn’t Sonya this time but Otis that helps Mandy find a way to win! Otis eats the cake while gazing upon his Golden Goddess. But is this turning out to be tainted love?

 

Lacey Evans VS Sasha Banks w/ Bayley!

The Sassy Southern Belle finally gets to go 1v1 with the Boss to see who really is boss around here! Will Lacey use her Woman’s Right to shut down the “locker room leaders?” Or will Sasha make an example out of her instead?

When Sasha doesn’t make her entrance right away, Lacey has her head on a swivel. But Bayley talks on the titantron. Bayley will put this in a way Lacey can understand: Sasha is AWOL! She went to a real city, Los Angeles, so she can finish her rap album. Bayley is stuck here out of contractual obligations. Lacey gets a mic and says she isn’t shocked Sasha is avoiding her. This is just the difference between women like Sasha and women like Lacey. Lacey is ready to fight any time, any where, and especially in the heartland of America!

The chant of “USA! USA!” gets Lacey thinking. If Sasha is nothing but a nasty no-show, and Bayley is talking smack as a “fighting” champion, then maybe Bayley puts up the title! Lacey can pander all she wants, and bark orders like the overbearing mom that she is, but Bayley ain’t your snot-nosed brat! Well then, Lacey will just go to Bayley! The Model Soldier marches to the back and Bayley waits for her. Will things go down backstage here tonight?

Lacey finds Bayley’s dressing room but gets jumped from behind! Bayley hammers and clubs Lacey to the floor! “Why don’t you put on your mom jeans and go home?!” Bayley goes to leave Lacey behind but Lacey comes back for more! Lacey rains down rights and stomps! Lacey shows the right hand but Bayley runs away! Referees keep Lacey back, wanting her to save this for the ring. Will Lacey ever get even with the Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection?

 

Backstage interview with Daniel Bryan!

Bryan heard Bray Wyatt’s message about remembering, changing and hurting. His response: “The Fiend sure does want a lot of things, huh?” Bryan remembers the Wyatt Family. What The Fiend doesn’t like is that Bryan outsmarted him. The Fiend did change Bryan, at least in his looks. And he’s changed Bryan for the better. So now The Fiend wants to hurt Bryan? That will definitely happen. What The Fiend doesn’t like is that he can’t break Bryan! And The Fiend acts like he can’t be hurt or beat, but he knows that Bryan knows that he can be beat and hurt. And it’ll happen for the title.

But Ramblin’ Rabbit communicates from the TV screen! Ramblin’ is a huge fan but he has to make this quick. Bryan is right: The Fiend can lose! Ramblin’ has the secret weakness! But Bray silences Ramblin’! “Remember kids: Snitches get stitches.” Bray still wants Bryan to #LetHimIn. But will Bryan take him out instead?

 

Braun Strowman VS Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Sami Zayn & Cesaro!

The Monster Among Men still hasn’t gotten that gift Sami Zayn promised. Will Strowman force the issue when he #GetsTheseHands all over the Intercontinental Champion tonight?

SmackDown returns as Shinsuke makes his entrance, with Team Sami behind him. The bell rings and Strowman puts Nakamura in a corner! Strowman throws hands then throws Shinsuke! Sami protests but Strowman runs corner to corner! Nakamura gets clear and fires off kicks and fast hands! Nakamura runs, dodges and ducks, but runs into a BOOT! Sami coaches Shinsuke up but Strowman drags him up to CLUB him down! Strowman kicks Shinsuke while he’s down and Sami protests again. Strowman puts Nakamura in a corner and fans fire up as he clubs Nakamura more. Nakamura sits down but Strowman brings him up to whip corner to corner hard!

Fans fire up as Strowman runs in corner to corner and hits the corner splash! Nakamura sits down again as Strowman glares at Sami. Strowman runs corner to corner again but Sami still gets Nakamura to safety. Fans boo but Strowman heads out after them! Sami and Cesaro hurry away and Strowman stomps Nakamura. Strowman chases Sami into the ring, but Cesaro shoves Strowman into the post! Nakamura dropkicks Strowman into the timekeeper’s area! Team Sami takes control as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Nakamura gives Strowman some Bad Vibrations! Nakamura goes corner to corner but is put on the apron! Nakamura kicks back then climbs up, and flying knees! Strowman is down, Nakamura covers, TWO! Nakamura keeps on Strowman with a sleeper hold and grinds him down. Strowman endures and pries at the hold, but Nakamura drags him down further. Fans rally up and Strowman fights back up. Strowman lifts Nakamura as a backpack to throw him off! Nakamura swings, misses but gets Strowman with the heel! Sami talks trash as Nakamura climbs up again. Strowman catches Nakamura! And LARIATS him down!

Strowman runs Nakamura over, and over, and then corner splashes! Strowman roars as he CLUBS Nakamura down! Cover, TWO!! Shinsuke survives and Sami is relieved. Strowman scoops but Nakamura slips out to Dynamic Dropkick! Running knee! Cover, TWO!! It wasn’t quite the Kinshasa, but Nakamura goes after Strowman with other knees! And palm strikes! Nakamura runs but into a SPINE BUSTER! Fans rally but Sami distracts the ref! Cesaro has a chair but gets caught! The ref tells him to get out and Cesaro pleads with him. But then Strowman knocks Cesaro out of the ring! Sami gives Nakamura the title! Nakamura swings but misses! Scoop, MONSTER SLAM! Cover, Strowman wins!!

Winner: Braun Strowman, by pinfall

And Sami is furious! The Monster pins the King of Strong Style and gets a shortcut to the title! Speaking of the title, Strowman picks up the title belt and gazes upon the gold. Fans cheer as Strowman raises the belt over his head! But then Sami snatches it away and runs up the ramp! Strowman shouts that it is only a matter of time. When will Strowman #GetTheseHands on the title?

 

Sheamus speaks.

“Rise over size. Embrace who you are.” Shorty G sure says a lot of things. But he didn’t say anything when Sheamus met “that little rat” in the ring to show everyone how things are going to change. Sheamus booted Gable down and Gable didn’t get up. Gable represents all the “ills” that have “infested” SmackDown. Small isn’t something to be proud of. It is something to be exterminated! Sheamus proved that size DOES matter. If we’re to embrace who we are, then Sheamus agrees. Because Sheamus is ready to embrace the chaos. What new order will the Celtic Warrior establish with that chaos?

 

Daniel Bryan finds a present backstage.

A red box with white ribbon… Bryan opens it up, and goes through the tissue paper to find… A mutilated Ramblin’ Rabbit. Disturbing to say the least. But will such mind games get to Bryan?

 

Roman Reigns is here!

The Big Dog is in Indy after being saved by his cousins. Roman has a mic now to speak. “2019, it was a blessed year. But it ended a bit ruff.” If you’ve been watching, you know the deal: he was outnumbered and jumped to being embarrassed by Corbin’s crew. Roman used to have back-up. This time, it wasn’t about friends helping him, but family. And last week, his family came back in a major way. That makes 2020 Roman’s year! Roman is going to win the Royal Rumble, main event WrestleMania again, and do that with his family by his side. The boys who have been by his side since Day One, the Usos! And the Usos make their entrance! Fans are fired up to see Jimmy & Jey again as they join Roman in the ring. Jimmy & Jey also get mics to speak.

“Yo, yo! Real talk! Uce, it feel good to be back on the Blue Brand!” Friday Night SmackDown is gonna be #FridayNightLockdown. But for the past 5 months on the sidelines, that was rough. But what was rough was watching Big Dog defend himself against Queen Corbin and his Kingdom. “And Queen, nice touch with the dog food.” But doing that disrespected Roman. And when you disrespect him, you disrespect Jey. when you disrespect Jey, you disrespect Jimmy. Now time to get real disrespectful. Kingdoms come and go but blood is forever!

But speaking of kingdoms, Baron Corbin rides out on his sedan and tells them “You’re really gonna do this, huh, Roman?” Roman’s pawning his beating off on his cousins. This is the beating Roman deserves after screwing Corbin out of his title shot! And that’s because Roman is hiding from Corbin! But if anyone is winning the Royal Rumble, it’s the King of the Ring! Corbin thinks Roman is scared? Roman would love to whoop Corbin’s ass twice in one night. So before the Rumble, how about going 1v1? And then Roman can throw Corbin out of the Rumble and point at the WrestleMania sign. Then Corbin will know who the man on SmackDown is. Corbin accepts that challenge! But after tonight, Roman won’t have his family! Because the King’s Court is about to handle the Big Dog’s “two little b*tches.” The Usos FLY out onto the court! Will Corbin be the one turning tail after tonight?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

After what went down with Kofi and Miz, Big E and John Morrison will face off 1v1! Will the Guru of Greatness make an AWESOME WWE in-ring return?

 

The Usos VS Baron Corbin & Dolph Ziggler!

SmackDown returns once more, and Ziggler starts with Jimmy. The two circle, Ziggler gets a leg but Jimmy blocks with a facelock. Ziggler slips out to headlock but Jimmy headlocks back. Ziggler powers out but Jimmy runs him over! Jimmy drags Ziggler up, wrenches and tags to Jey. The Usos whip and elbow Ziggler down, double elbow drop! Cover, TWO! Ziggler scrambles away to tag Corbin. Fans boo Corbin as he swings on Jey but Jey uppercuts back! Corbin knees low then whips Jey corner to corner, but Jey slides to a stop. Corbin slides out, then in then LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Corbin taunts Jimmy then goes after Jey.

Tag to Ziggler, Ziggler stomps a mudhole and scrapes Jey’s face. Then he dropkicks Jey down! Cover, TWO! Ziggler keeps on Jey with a sleeper hold and body scissors! Fans rally for Jey as he fights his way up. Ziggler pulls Jey back and to the corner, tag to Corbin. Corbin mugs Jey and clubs Jey down. Corbin taunts the fans but fans boo. Corbin drags Jey up, Jey slips out o the suplex and Jimmy tags in! Mule kick and uppercut! Jimmy is on Corbin in the corner with a rain of rights! Corbin stops that at 7, slides out then in, but Jimmy kicks. Corbin blocks and spins Jimmy, to get the Dragon Whip!

Jimmy hurries up top but “SAY YEAH!” The Revival are also part of the King’s Court! They distracts, Corbin shoves Jimmy down and Ziggler throws Jey to the crowd! Corbin’s court (jesters) help out again, but here comes Roman! The Big Dog returns to SUPERMAN PUNCH both #TopGuys down at the same time! Corbin is worried as SmackDown goes to one last break.

SmackDown returns one last time, and hot tag to Jimmy! Jimmy rallies all over Corbin and Ziggler! Uppercut and Samoan Drop! Zigger gets to a corner, Jimmy runs in for the hip attack! SUPERKICK for Corbin! Jey gets in and FLIES onto Corbin, but Corbin catches him! And throws him into Roman! Ziggler rolls Jimmy up, TWO!! SUPERKICK for Ziggler! Jimmy hurries up top and leaps, USO SPLASH! But Corbin throws Jimmy into a post! Corbin throws Roman into barriers! Corbin puts Jey in but Roman SPEARS Corbin!!

Winner: Corbin & Ziggler, by disqualification

The Bloodline’s blood is boiling! Roman clears the announce desk and drags Corbin over! Roman reels Corbin in, powerbomb lift but ROBERT ROODE attacks! The GLORIOUS One is back and he RAMS Roman into a post! Then hits a GLORIOUS DDT! Jey gets a DEEP SIX! Ziggler hobbles over and Roode feeds Jimmy to Ziggler’s SUPERKICK! Corbin drags Roman up and his Glorious “knights” are fired up. “Look at your family!!” They bring Corbin over, whip to Roode, GLORIOUS SPINE BUSTER on the desk! The desk doesn’t break, so Ziggler climbs up to elbow drop through the table!!

But the King’s Court is not through with Roman yet as they bury Roman in the rubble! Direct payback for what Roman did to Roode! The Wolf King stands tall over the Bloodline, stronger than ever. Will they continue to reign with iron fists? Or will this only strengthen the rebellion?

 


 

My Thoughts:

This was a fairly good episode, but it was definitely a fast-moving episode with basically no filler and a good amount of story progress in each of the stories SmackDown has been building. We got a really solid Miz TV segment with Morrison helping explain the motivation of the turn, and we got a good rematch from Kofi VS Miz. The one thing this match didn’t need was as many cuts to Big E and Morrison on commentary. If we can hear them, we don’t need to see them, especially when things moved to have them ringside anyway. And Big E VS Morrison next week, that will be a real good match for Morrison’s WWE in-ring return. I’m pretty sure things are moving so that this is the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match at the Royal Rumble, and I feel like Miz & Morrison could find a way to win that match.

The Mandy-Otis story is going interesting places. It was very sweet for Mandy to give Otis that cake to apologize, and Heavy Machinery is doing very well with their part of the segments. It was interesting for them to play into Rose VS Bliss, but it does add a new wrinkle that maybe this is just a deeply cerebral plan to use Otis as a trump card since it’d be too easy for Sonya to interfere. In the end, I’m still hoping this all culminates on Valentine’s Friday, and I can see Otis coming out incredibly strong and on a roll regardless of the outcome. I am a little disappointed that we didn’t get Lacey VS Sasha, but the brawl of Lacey and Bayley was pretty good. Maybe we still get Lacey VS Sasha next week and that still leads to Lacey VS Bayley for the title at Royal Rumble.

Elias has a good Rumble themed song that doesn’t really pick on one side over the other (Faces or Heels, that is). I think as long as Elias is in the Rumble a long time and maybe eliminates a couple Heels, that’s a good Rumble performance for him. The story of Bryan and Bray took another step in the right direction with the Firefly Fun House segments and Ramblin’ Rabbit once again “dead.” Though it was a bit obvious the puppet was in the box for Bryan to find, it was still a good move. Sheamus’s promo of course makes Gable the face of his “anti-weakness” angle, and he delivered it well enough. I would hope Gable gets at least get one win in the feud just to rub it in Sheamus’s face.

Strowman VS Nakamura, even with Sami and Cesaro lurking around, was a good match, and naturally Strowman gets his win on the champ. I almost feel like they should have this title match before the Royal Rumble, so that both men can be in the Rumble. If Strowman wins, Team Sami will want revenge on Nakamura’s behalf. If Nakamura wins, then at least Strowman can take it out on everyone in the Rumble, and maybe even Lesnar. Everything with The Bloodline and Corbin’s Court was good, and Roode’s return was used very effectively. They leave Roman & The Usos down, and I sense we are getting a Six Man Tag after all.

Roman VS Corbin at the Royal Rumble before the Rumble match has been set, and I dread it will be the rumored Dog Food Match, so that’s going to be awful one way or another. But putting it before the Rumble, I wonder if Roman wins to humiliate Corbin so bad that Corbin won’t want to be in the Rumble match. Though, Corbin will probably want to attack Roman back to make sure Roman doesn’t win the Rumble, which could take a highly favored SmackDown superstar out of the running. That could open up something big for a Raw superstar, or an NXT superstar if WWE wants to really shake things up. That might be the irony of this Roman VS Corbin feud: it keeps these two busy so that we aren’t going back to the days of “LOL Roman Wins” and fans being upset no one else is getting the top title opportunities.

My Score: 8.1/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Michael Cole & Pat McAfee are in the ring!

They welcome us to the show, and note that Rhea Ripley had to vacate her Women’s World Championship last week due to injury. And so in the majestic state of O H I O, this is one of the biggest matches in WWE history! For the fourth time ever, a battle royal will determine a new champion! Nearly every woman on Raw is in this match, and the last one standing will be the BRAND NEW Women’s World Champion! Columbus loves the sound of that, and we get a recap package of Rhea’s emotional departure.

 

Jey Uso is here!

Columbus is bouncing with the YEET Master, as is Pat, as we’re just weeks away from Backlash and the World Heavyweight Championship match. Jey gets a mic to tell Columbus, “Main Event Jey Uso is now in your city~!” Jey continues by saying Backlash is in two weeks. “YEET!” Backlash is in two weeks! “YEET!” So he’s got a lot to prove! “YEET!” To the world! “YEET!” That he is Main Event Jey Uso! “YEET!” Jey has to beat Damian Priest. He has to make sure everything he’s been through was worth it. But wait, here comes Priest! The World Heavyweight Champion makes his way out, without the rest of the Judgment Day, to go right to the ring.

Priest gets a mic as he steps in and tells Jey to take it easy. Whatever Jey thins Priest is here for, he’s wrong. Priest just wants to tell Jey that his whole presentation, the YEET, “Main Event Jey,” that vibe… It suits Jey. Congratulations. The fans applaud the respect shown. Priest then tells Jey that they went to war last year. But Priest wants to talk about one specific night. Priest’s never said this publicly, and Jey will know if he’s lying. But there was one night where Jey whooped Priest’s ass so bad, that Priest then went up to Jey backstage and told him to his face that Jey earned Priest’s respect. That’s why Priest wanted Jey in the Judgment Day.

And then Priest said they were going out and drinks were on him. Now, Priest doesn’t remember much else, but he does remember one: he paid the bill, Jey had that Bloodline good stuff. Jey admits, they needed Uber. And two: Jey said something to Priest that Priest is very proud of. Jey told Priest that they were next. Jey said that “We next, Uce.” Priest stands here now, proud to stand with Jey, because Jey was right. The fans applaud, and Priest says if he’s being honest, Jey was half right. Priest was next. Jey says hey man, you almost had him liking you. But Priest says the world title proves why he’s next. And why he’s the now.

It’s okay, though, Jey. Jey is just the first on a list of many that the machine is going ot feed Priest to make sure this looks good on him. Nothing to be ashamed of! Nothing at all! First to fall, but then first to lead the people. The first to lead the fans all across the world in making sure… they all rise for El Campeon. The fans boo Priest’s arrogance, but then Jey says hold on, hold on. Take it easy, Priest. Come on back, let him holla at you. Priest isn’t sure what Jey can say, but go ahead. Jey asks if that’s all Priest sees him as. As just one of the Usos, huh? Tough talk coming from the leader of the Judgment Day.

But the only reason why Priest is in charge is cuz Rhea’s hurt. By the way, how Mami doing? Tell her he said hi! Hey, champ, y’know what that makes you? Dom Mysterio’s B*TCH!! Priest is mad but Jey says GOTTEE! Yeah, Priest did what he did. He cashed in at Mania, made himself World Heavyweight Champion. But you think they’re just feeding Jeyu to Priest? No, Priest’s getting fed to Jey! Jey’s next! The NEXT World Heavyweight Champion! Ohio, if you rocking with Jey Uso, lemme hear ya say “YEET!” “YEET!!” The fans are fired up with Jey and Priest, but then JD McDonagh runs in! Jey dodges JD, who almost runs into Priest!

Jey takes aim, JD ducks, SUPERKICK hits Priest! Whoops! The Irish Ace messed up and Jey says his bad. Jey leaves, JD apologizes, but will Priest have to handle things himself at Backlash?

 

“The time draws near…”

“The throne… is calling. The King and Queen… will be crowned.” The champions of tomorrow are forged in combat, and victory will set you on a path to greatness. Future Hall of Famers take their first steps towards immortality, and in May, we begin again! Who will make it through the tournament to seize destiny and don the crowns?

 

WWE World Tag Team Championships: The Awesome Truth VS DIY!

The Miz & R-Truth won the Raw Tag Team Championships at Mania, and were gifted the newly minted World Tag Team Championships just last week. However, all the fun could be done for #RegenerationX as they now face off as opponents. Will these titles still be Awesome? Or will Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano finally have gold again?

Raw returns as the champs make their entrance, “What’s Up?” The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who are truly championship material!

The teams sort out and Truth circles with Gargano. The fans rally behind Truth, he high-fives Gargano then they tie up. Truth wrenches, wristlocks, but Gargano rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Truth rolls, rolls, rolls, then gets free. Gargano runs up but into an arm-drag! Truth has the armlock, Gargano fights around, and Gargano powers up to arm-drag free! Truth sweeps, covers, ONE! Gargano goes to sweep but Truth jumps it to do the splits! The fans cheer and even Gargano is impressed. They shake hands, reset, and tie up again. Gargano headlocks but Truth powers out. Miz tags in and Awesome Truth DOUBLE HIP TOSS!

Awesome Truth do their secret handshake then DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Cover, ONE!! Miz whips Gargano, Gargano goes up and over to roll Miz, but Miz blocks the kick! Gargano kicks free of the Figure Four, tag to Ciampa! Ciampa runs up, fights the full nelson, and elbows free! Miz sees Ciampa means business, so he runs up! Ciampa dodges to CHOP, forearm, and CHOP! Miz swings, but into a dragon sleeper! Miz turns that around, BACKBREAKER, but Ciampa turns neckbreaker into backslide! TWO, Miz trips Ciampa and steps through! FIGURE FOUR! Ciampa endures as the fans fire up, Gargano DROPKICKS Miz!

Truth runs up to whip but Gargano reverses! Truth tumbles out, Miz TOSSES Gargano! Ciampa rolls Miz! TWO, tag to Gargano! Miz swings, Ciampa dodges and Gargano SLINGSHOT SPEARS! Miz tumbles out, Ciampa shakes out his leg to go after Truth. Gargano PLANCHAS onto Miz, DIY meet around the way to pat themselves on the back and applaud! The fans are torn, but DIY is in control as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Truth suplexes Ciampa for a GOURD BUSTER! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ciampa and Truth crawl, hot tag to Miz! Miz rallies with LARIAT after LARIAT, then KICK after KICK! Miz fires off in the corner, then goes corner to corner to A-LIST LARIAT! Miz goes to the apron, Gargano runs up but Miz kicks low! APRON DDT! Miz then resets, RAMS into Ciampa, and springboards, into a JUMP KNEE! Cover, TWO! Miz survives but Ciampa keeps his focus. Ciampa drags Miz up, reels him in, but Miz drops under! Miz reaches out, but Ciampa drags him away from the corner! Miz BOOTS Ciampa away, hot tag to Truth!

Truth rallies on DIY! HE dodges Ciampa to shoulder tackle! And shoulder tackle again! Then the SPIN-OUT BOMB! The fans fire up for the Cena shoutout as Truth says “YOU CAN’T SEE ME!” But Gargano SUPERKICKS him! Ciampa says “SUCK IT!” Kick and underhooks, PEDIGREE!! Cover, TWO!! Truth survives and DIY can’t believe it! Ciampa BLASTS Miz, then Gargano DIVES to take Miz down! Ciampa gets Truth up, but Truth cradle counters! TWO!!

But Miz DUMPS Ciampa into the front row! Miz puts Gargano in, Truth crawls over and tags Miz in! Miz swings, Gargano dodges and tilt-o-whirls! Miz stops that but Gargano victory rolls! TWO!! Miz catches Gargano this time, Truth joins in, THE TRUTH-CRUSHING FINALE!! Cover, Awesome Truth wins!!

Winners: The Awesome Truth, by pinfall (still WWE World Tag Team Champions)

Miz & Truth manage to hold off DIY in the first defense of these belts, but they also show respect. They shake hands and hug it out, except for Ciampa. Ciampa is understandably frustrated, but will DIY find a way to another shot? Will the Awesome Truth be there to meet them when they do?

 

The Judgment Day regroups backstage.

JD is upset about what Jey said. He knows that didn’t go as planned, but- Priest stops him there to say there was NO plan. Priest didn’t ask for JD’s help here. Not this week, and not last week. Which JD failed both times, by the way. But Priest got kicked in the face this time! JD apologizes, but then Dom walks in, arm in a sling! And he’s also brought Santos Escobar! Priest asks what is going on here. Dom says he was supposed to have the match alongside JD against Ricochet and Andrade tonight, but he’s a bit banged up. So instead, he asked Santos to return the favor from WrestleMania. Santos will team up with JD, the GMs approved it.

Is there a problem? Yes! But we don’t have a choice, huh? So Santos, do them all a favor and handle this. Santos says Priest has nothing to worry about. Dom apologizes but Priest stops him. Just go out there and handle business! And while they’re at it, just stay out of his. JD says yeah, they’ll handle Judgment Day business. JD wants a fist bump, but Priest refuses. JD and Dom fist bump then heads out with Santos. Is Judgment Day falling apart without Mami on top of things?

 

Shawn Michaels speaks.

HBK is proud to announce that NXT Battleground is coming to Las Vegas and the UFC Apex! Sunday, June 9th, NXT hits Sin City and this state of the art facility! The partnership under TKO is already making history, but who will reign in NXT for the Summer?

 

Imperium is here!

Der Ring General returns after his defeat at WrestleMania, flanked by Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci, and they go right to the ring. Kaiser hands Gunther the mic, and Gunther takes a moment before speaking. “I know what you expect me to say up here. Talk about WrestleMania, take some shots at Sami Zayn, but I’m sorry to disappoint you. That’s not what I’m gonna do. See, I took some time away to digest everything that happened, and I wanna say this. For 666 days, I elevated the Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship to heights never seen before.” The fans do applaud that.

Gunther says in that process, he became the greatest champion in that title’s history. His name, Der Ring General Gunther, will forever be embedded in the Intercontinental Championship. However, that also means for almost two years, he was walking around here with a big target on his back, the pressure of living up to everyone’s expectations, and his own. That weight has now been lifted. So to Sami Zayn, Gunther wants to thank you. The fans applaud that, too. Gunther says now, he isn’t a target anymore. he is going from being the hunted to being the hunter. He can do whatever he wants.

This is a brand new era, and no matter which brand Gunther is drafted to, he will make sure his name will be embedded in this new era. So therefore, Gunther officially declares his participation in the King of the Ring Tournament! The fans love the sound of that! Gunther says after that, it is up to Gunther to decide which championship he takes next. Whether it is Sami Zayn and Gunther’s IC title, or any other title in the WWE. “But fair warning. As a champion in WWE, you will be targeted, you will be hunted by a challenger that is not only able of winning titles, but is also able to hold on longer to them than anybody else!”

“Already, The General of the Ring, SOON to be the King of the Ring, Der Ring General, GUNTHER!” The fans are fired up with Gunther, will he assume the throne- Wait! The New Day is here! Xavier Woods tells everyone to hold on and sound the alarm. Sound the alarm! Kofi Kingston says Gunther is correct, this is a new era. But what better way to usher in this new era than with ya bois the NEW~ DAY~! See, what you’re looking at is the reigning, defending, King, of the RING~! Woods & Kofi step into the ring, and Woods says Gunther is an USURPER to the throne. A PRETENDER! And he’s not the only one thinking about legacy.

Woods is going to cement his legacy when he becomes a TWO-TIME King of the Ring! Say it again! TWO~ time King of the Ring! Three times for emphasis! TWO~! Gunther says okay, we got it, Clown King. But let’s make it clear. After Gunther wins, he will reestablish the image of that tournament. Then Woods will be remembered as someone who won by accident and pretend to be champion. Oh, champion, huh? The thing Gunther used to be? He lost his gold to Sam Zayn! Where your gold at, Gunther? Kofi & Woods make it a song and the fans join in! Gunther says enough! This is beneath him. Vinci & Kaiser will take care of this.

NO NO NO! Woods & Kofi have faced them enough already. Woods and Gunther will handle their business during King of the Ring. But if his “bump boys” want a match here and now tonight in Columbus, Ohio~! That’s right, COLUMBUS, OHIO~! Then they will gladly beat those cheeks! BECAAAAAUSE~! NEW! DAY ROCKS! The fans fire up, but will Der Ring General’s soldiers finally finish this feud once and for all? Or will Woods & Kofi be building momentum back to the throne?

The New Day VS Imperium!

Raw returns as Kofi circles with Kaiser. They tie up, Kaiser headlocks and grinds the hold. Kofi powers up and headlocks back, but Kaiser powers up and out. Kofi ducks ‘n’ turns hip toss into MONKEY FLIP! Then he DROPKICKS Kaiser down! The fans rally, Kaiser staggers up and Kofi clinches. Kaiser pulls hair, puts Kofi in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Kaiser blocks Kofi’s kick and says “NEIN!” UPPERCUT, snapmare, cover, ONE! Kaiser stays between Kofi and Woods. Kaiser bumps Kofi off buckles, tags Vinci, and Imperium mugs Kofi. Vinci brings Kofi around to UPPERCUT!

Kofi goes to a corner, dodges Vinci, then CHOPS back! And CHOPS and CHOPS and then brings Vinci around. Tag to Woods, Kofi wrenches and Woods goes up, to AX HANDLE the arm! Woods wrenches, CLUBS the arm again and again, then tags Kofi. Whip into Kofi’s shoulder, then roll up to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Kofi whips, Vinci BOOTS back and Kaiser tags in. Imperium POSTS Kofi, then they run to DOUBLE DROPKICK at the corner! Imperium soaks up the heat, Kaiser digs his boot in, but lets off as the ref counts. The fans rally for “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Kofi throws body shots then JAWBREAKERS!

Kofi reaches but Kaiser keeps him from Woods! Kaiser reaches out to tag Vinci, but Kofi TOSSES Kaiser! Kofi ROCKS Vinci, but Kaiser returns, HIGH LOW!! Then they CLOBBER Woods! Cover, TWO! The fans boo but Gunther is still impressed as Raw goes to break.

But Woods SHOVES Kaiser down, and bomb becomes RANA! Kofi then clotheslines Kaiser up and out! Woods aims, and he FLYING SHOULDER TACKLES Kaiser! Kofi BOOTS Vinci, tags Woods, and they get Vinci up! UP UP, DOWN DOWN! Cover, New Day wins!

Winners: The New Day, by pinfall

Der Ring General is rather beside himself. In fact, he CHUCKS his armchair away! Gunther is very disappointed in Kaiser & Vinci, but will he just have to take his frustrations out on whoever is in his way during the King of the Ring Tournament?

As for Kaiser & Vinci, Kaiser does his best to encourage Vinci and help him up to his feet. They leave together, having been left behind by Gunther. The Draft is coming, will these two be able to stick together like always? OH NO! Kaiser RAMS Vinci into the LED boards! The Impeccable German PENALTY KICKS the Pride of Italy! Kaiser SPITS on Vinci, drags him back up, and then POSTS him! Gunther’s disappointment in Kaiser leads to Kaiser’s anger towards Vinci as he CLUBS away on Vinci! Vinci hobbles up, Kaiser SMACKS him off the desk! Kaiser says, “How many years?!” Kaiser CHOPS Vinci down!

Kaiser gets Vinci up again, to RAM him into steel steps! Vinci tumbles up and over, clutches his knee, but Kaiser drags him onto the steps now! Kaiser snarls, but referees and producers hurry out here to stop him from doing anything worse! Kaiser leaves Vinci behind now, fans booing his mistreatment of a former friend. But then Kaiser jukes the producers, runs around the ring, and he DROPKICKS Vinci against the steps!! The fans lose their minds at Kaiser’s savagery! Cameras follow Kaiser to the back and he asks if Gunther saw that. Kaiser told Gunther he would get things done. Gunther smiles, has Imperium cut Vinci off like he’s dead weight?

 

Andrade El Idolo speaks.

“Be careful when you hear about a problem. You might be hearing it from the problem. I am many things, but the one thing I am not is someone’s fool.” As he sees it, he didn’t betray The Judgment Day and Legado Del Fantasma. “How can you pressure someone when from the beginning, they were never loyal? They didn’t want to do business with me. They didn’t want a business partner. They wanted a servant. Nobody tells me what to do. So now, they’re right. I am now their biggest problem.” El Idolo es Ingobernable, will he and the King of Flight be unstoppable against The Irish Ace and the Emperor of Lucha?

 

Drew McIntyre is here!

The Scottish Terminator makes his way to the ring, gets a mic, and hears the fans chant “C M PUNK! C M PUNK!” McIntyre sits down on the mat cross-legged, his own shot at the Second City Saint. “As usual, don’t shoot up my kilt, ya perv.” Then he asks the fans, “Why do you insist on chanting his name every single time I come out?” The fans chant for Punk again, but the amount of evidence we’ve had over the years, don’t they realize Punk actually hates the fans? The only person he hates more than the fans is himself! Did you ever love something so much that it doesn’t quite love you back as much? That is McIntyre’s relationship with pro-wrestling.

Say “What” if you French kiss your cousins. “WHAT?” “You’re sick.” The fans don’t get complex relationships, because most guys in here, the most complex relationship they’ve had is with their own right hands. McIntyre could sit here and complain all night, but he’s not gonna do that, even though at WrestleMania, he was attacked from behind but that coward, CM Punk! Priest who could’ve never beat McIntyre 1v1, used his briefcase like a coward! Then that next Monday, McIntyre didn’t get an automatic rematch like everyone else would. No, McIntyre was in a Fatal 4 Way, beat everyone’s asses, but Punk had to screw him over again, and Jey takes advantage, like a coward!

But McIntyre won’t complain. As usual, his back is against the wall but he’ll come out swinging and target his next prize, the King of the Ring! But next week, it doesn’t matter about the Draft, he- SHEAMUS IS HERE! The Celtic Warrior has Columbus all fired up, and he has a mic to tell Drew, “What’s going on, man? I don’t get it. You’re sitting in the ring here sulking. Complaining about how everybody’s a coward, yeah? How are you, by the way? But let’s be honest, man. All I see is the only person here who’s not gonna take responsibility for his own mistakes.” Sheamus steps in the ring and says that makes McIntyre the coward.

Sheamus wants to continue but he asks if McIntyre’s still gonna sit there or what. McIntyre stands, and Sheamus says good, because after all this time, he’s earned that respect. They’ve known each other 20 YEARS. And yet for the last four, all McIntyre’s gone on about is how he was robbed of his career-defining moment. Then at WrestleMania 40, he did it! McIntyre got his moment! He became World Heavyweight Champion, in front of a live crowd! His brother, John Galloway, was there! His wife, Caitlyn, was there! They kissed and hugged! And then McIntyre blew it! Over some stupid social media spat!

McIntyre should be here the World Heavyweight Champion. But over memes and T-shirts, McIntyre threw it all away. Is Sheamus to keep wearing black after that bleeding burial at Mania? Sheamus wants McIntyre to hear him out. They’re friends, traveled the world together, had epic booze ups together, and banger after banger after banger matches. So to tell McIntyre the hard truth, a one-armed CM Punk kicked McIntyre’s ass. McIntyre is incensed, especially with fans chanting for Punk again. McIntyre says he doesn’t care what the fans think they know, Sheamus knows what Punk did to McIntyre. How that affected McIntyre’s career. Sheamus knows better than anybody!

Yes, but this obsession is tearing McIntyre’s career down! He has to get it out of his head! McIntyre says fine, Sheamus wants to do this in front of the world, this is a conversation they’ve had backstage before. But go ahead, tell the world the truth now! Before Sheamus was hurt, it was banger after banger. But since Sheamus’ return, looks more like it’s been burger after burger. The fans boo and Sheamus laughs off the fat jokes. Sheamus will say, since he’s been gone, McIntyre is getting good at one-liners. And Sheamus deserves that. But the thing is, he could still lose the weight. McIntyre can’t lose his stupid.

So then stop blaming everyone else! But it IS everyone else! Burger after burger, the Ginger Pillsbury Dough Boy! Flubber Man! That’s not McIntyre’s words, that is what everyone was saying during Sheamus’ match! McIntyre was standing up for him! Sheamus says it doesn’t matter what anyone says! It doesn’t bother Sheamus! But it bothers McIntyre! They’re still friends! Whether Sheamus gets it or not, or if the fans get it or not, McIntyre tells the truth. And he’s Sheamus’ only real friend here! In the past, they’d throw hands, then throw back pints. McIntyre is past that, he only fights if it is worthwhile. So this here… isn’t.

But McIntyre will still be there for Sheamus. McIntyre will be ringside, at commentary, and he will watch Sheamus’ back. Shinsuke Nakamura makes his entrance, will the Celtic Warrior get a workout from the King of Strong Style?

Sheamus VS Shinsuke Nakamura!

Raw returns and the two circle. They tie up, Nakamura waistlocks then CLUBS away on Sheamus. Nakamura KICKS Sheamus, whips, but Sheamus reverses. Nakamura holds ropes, DUMPS Sheamus to the apron, but Sheamus body shots back! Sheamus then brings Nakamura around, but Nakamura slips free to throw elbows! Nakamura winds up but Sheamus SWATS the kick! Sheamus DECKS Nakamura, goes up, but Nakamura kicks Sheamus’ legs out! Nakamura CLUBS Sheamus on the top rope, then runs to TOP SHELF KNEE! McIntyre reminds Michael Cole & Pat McAfee that he can hear them both talking about him.

Nakamura digs his boots into Sheamus to give BAD VIBRATIONS! McIntyre does his best to put Sheamus over while Nakamura eggs Sheamus on with “C’MON!” Sheamus eggs Nakamura on in return! Nakamura stomps but Sheamus blocks! Sheamus ROCKS Nakamura, ROCKS him again and again, then swings. Nakamura dodges to fire a strike fest! Nakamura KICKS, KICKS and KICKS! Then AX KICK! Sheamus drops to his knees, Nakamura runs, but Sheamus CLOBBERS him! The fans fire up while Sheamus stares McIntyre down. McIntyre gives a thumbs up, and Sheamus stalks Nakamura to ropes.

Sheamus stands Nakamura up against ropes, and the fans fire up for BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Sheamus goes all the way to nine, then winds up for TEN! Nakamura sputters and Sheamus goes out after him. Sheamus brings the kneepad down, takes aim, KNEE CAP! Sheamus drags Nakamura back up, puts him in, but Nakamura bails out the side. Sheamus pursues, McIntyre says go ahead. Sheamus scoops Nakamura, but Nakamura slips free! ROUNDHOUSE! Sheamus wobbles, Nakamura SMACKS him off the desk! And again, and again! Nakamura goes up the barriers and aims, for a FLYING KNEE DROP!!

The Celtic Warrior is down, the King of Strong Style stands tall, and the Scottish Terminator shakes his head, all while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Sheamus fires body shots. Nakamura KICKS back, runs, but into an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! And another IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Sheamus climbs a corner, Nakamura stands, and Sheamus FLYING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Sheamus drags Nakamura up, fireman’s carries, but Nakamura fights free! Sheamus blocks one kick but not the ENZIGIRI! Nakamura runs in at the corner, blocks boots and puts Sheamus in ropes! Nakamura KICKS, runs, and SLIDING GERMANS! Sheamus flounders, Nakamura goes up a corner, and FLYING KNEE ATTACKS! Cover, TWO!

The fans rally as Sheamus stays in this. Nakamura clamps on with a SLEEPER, then he drags Sheamus up. The fans rally, Sheamus fights, but Nakamura becomes a backpack! So Sheamus RAMS Nakamura into buckles! Sheamus fires elbow after elbow, lets off as the ref counts, and he fireman’s carries Nakamura up the corner! The fans fire up for the SUPER WHITE NOISE!! Cover, TWO!! Nakamura survives and Sheamus is beside himself! Sheamus goes back to the corner, the fans rally up, and McIntyre coaches Sheamus, only for Nakamura to KNEE him down! cover, TWO! Nakamura snarls but he takes aim from the corner.

Nakamura waits as Sheamus rises, “YAO~!” Nakamura runs in, but into a scoop and POWERSLAM! Sheamus fires up with the fans and he aims from the corner. The fans shout along as Sheamus beats his chest. Nakamura rises, but dodges the Brogue! Roll up, TWO! Sheamus ducks one kick, another kick, KNEE CAP! cover, TWO!! Nakamura survives but Sheamus hauls him back up. Sheamus reels Nakamura in, Canadian Rack, but Nakamura fights free! V-TRIGGER! Then BOOT! Sheamus wobbles, Nakamura aims, runs in, into a BROGUE!! Cover, Sheamus wins!

Winner: Sheamus, by pinfall

A banger to be sure, and the Celtic Warrior shows off the beef! McIntyre also applauds, but will he really be Sheamus’ friend through all of this?

 

Backstage interview with Sami Zayn.

Cathy Kelley is with the Intercontinental Champion and notes the recap of what happened in Montreal. Has Sami been able to process everything? Sami isn’t sure. He’s been angry, hurt, and there’s a lot he’d really like to say. But he is biting his tongue. He heard Chad Gable is going to address what he did last week, so Sami will be listening like everyone else. Sami just doesn’t see how Gable could defend his actions. But then in steps Bronson Reed. He says never mind Gable, Sami has bigger problems to deal with. Sami says if this title is what Bronson wants, then any time, any place. Bronson says okay.

The Colossal Aussie leaves, Cathy still wants Sami to expound on his feelings, but then Bronson returns to CLOBBER Sami!! And he throws Sami around against the road cases! Bronson says he already warned everyone that if he wants to take that title, he will! You’re looking at the NEW Intercontinental Champion! Refs and producers rush in, Bronson backs off, and Sami gets to his feet. Bronson CLOBBERS Sami again!! Another blindside attack for Sami, will there be anything left of him to even defend the title?

 

Chad Gable heads to the ring.

The Alpha Academy still follows their mentor out here, but they are perhaps as confused and concerned as anyone else. What will Gable say about him snapping on Sami? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns as the Academy is in the ring. A new QR code flashes… Raw shares footage from the Pat McAfee Show as Charles Barkley says Gable can’t go whooping a man’s ass after a match, and certainly not in front of that man’s wife, kids and family. In the present, Gable has the mic but the fans boo. Gable says after what happened to Sami backstage, it is safe to say he’s had a rough couple of weeks. Now look, at least what Gable did to Sami was justified. It was…? Gable paints us a picture: capacity crowd in Montreal! Intercontinental Championship match, Gable VS hometown hero, Sami Zayn.

They tear the house down, and Sami walks out as champion. A great story, right? One Gable could accept, even if he didn’t want to. But not Sami, no. That wasn’t good enough. Sami saw Gable weeping in the corner, he placed the title right in front of him. Gable took that on the chin, got up and raised Sami’s hand in the ring to give Sami his moment. But even that wasn’t enough. What’d Sami do? Went up to his wife in the front row, brought that title to celebrate with her, when he knew Gable was standing there! That should’ve been Gable at Mania! That should’ve been Gable with his wife and daughter in the front row!

But Gable was wasting his time training Sami Zayn! And training a bunch of freakin’ losers! The fans boo as Gable insults the Academy! Gable asks if Tozawa has a problem with that. Go ahead, say something. Because Gable has a problem with Mr. Funny Man! All Tozawa does is come out here, do his little dance, and he gets loss after loss! It’s PATHETIC! The fans boo more but then Gable goes to Maxxine. “Sweet Miss Maxxine. Pretty as a princess, right? But dumb as a box of rocks.” What else does Gable have to do? He’s given everything and gotten nothing in return! It’s PATHETIC!! And that leaves Otis. “Don’t even get me started on you.”

Gable looks at Otis, the fans rallying behind him. Gable says his “prized pupil,” his “number one guy,” has proven himself beyond a shadow of a doubt… to be the biggest disappointment of them all. Guys, hold on, let’s back up a second. This is why they signed up, right? For feedback on how to get better. They can’t be upset with him. Just get on the same page and know that from now on, they focus… on Gable. They will all win Gable’s Intercontinental Championship together. They are going to help him no matter what. Right? The fans say “NO! NO! NO!” Gable wants them to say it, though. “No matter what.”

Otis, Maxxine and Tozawa look to each other. Gable doesn’t hear Otis. Say it. Gable holds the mic to Otis’ face, the fans chant “NO! NO! NO!” Otis says, “No matter what…” Gable says, “Good.” Master Gable has become a tyrant, but will he have the title no matter what he has to do?

 

Dominik finds Ricochet backstage.

Dirty Dom tells Ricochet that he’s lucky Dom isn’t cleared tonight, or else Dom would- Yeah, yeah, yeah, Ricochet gets it. Dom would should what happens when you mess with The Judgment Day. But Ricochet is with Dom. There is no one more upset that Dom isn’t cleared than Ricochet. Because Ricochet was looking forward to beating Dom specifically. But hey, he and Andrade will now settle for Dom’s boys, JD and Santos. By the way, if Dom sees Bobblehead JD before Ricochet, tell him that Ricochet will also see JD this Wednesday for WWE Speed, where Ricochet will further embarrass him. Because Ricochet IS like that.

Ricochet leaves, Dom says keep walking. Dom turns around to see Liv Morgan. Liv looks at Dom’s arm in a sling, and they both know the issues here are far from settled. Will Liv win the Women’s World Championship tonight to make sure Mami comes back for her?

 

Nia Jax speaks.

“Tonight, we’re having an all-star battle royal for the Women’s World Championship. Fourteen women. That means there’s 13 females and one monster. And I’m that monster. I’m gonna terrorize each and everyone of them, and I’m gonna eliminate them one by one by one. Until I’m the last woman standing, and I become your Women’s World Champion.” Will the Irresistible Force be unstoppable on her way to the top?

 

Ricochet & Andrade El Idolo VS Santos Escobar & JD McDonagh w/ Dominik Mysterio!

Raw returns as Andrade makes his entrance to join Ricochet in the ring. The Judgment Day make their entrance, followed by the Emperor of Lucha. The teams sort out and Andrade starts against JD. The bell rings, JD takes a swing but Andrade dodges to fire back! Andrade clamps onto an arm, wrangles JD, but JD fights up to chinbar Andrade to ropes. The ref counts, JD takes a swing but Andrade dodges to CHOP! JD staggers, tags Santos, and the fans rally up as we get multi-generational luchadores meeting. They tie up, Andrade waistlocks but Santos elbows free. Santos whips, things speed up, and Andrade rolls off Santos’ back!

Santos goes to a corner, Ricochet brings him up and UPPERCUTS! And DROPKICKS! And then snapmare for the running ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!

Andrade gets JD up, for THE MESSAGE! Cover, Andrade & Ricochet win!

Winners: Ricochet & Andrade El Idolo, by pinfall

Dom is disappointed, but then Priest gets in to POST Andrade! And SUPERKICKS Ricochet! The Punisher is pissed, and he gives Ricochet the RAZOR’S EDGE! Priest then gets Andrade up and around, to go SOUTH OF HEAVEN! El Campeon handled business for The Judgment Day, and tells Dom that in Spanish. JD asks what that means, and Priest tells JD that he doesn’t need them, they need him. Priest storms off, but is that true? Is Priest the only reason Judgment Day even has anything right now?

 

Zoey Stark speaks.

“Well, ladies and gentlemen, it has been one year since I have been drafted to Monday Night Raw. And what a year it has been! When I first got here, I was told to go in the corner and watch, learn, stay humble and be patient. No. See, instead, Trish Stratus? Hit her with a Z360, sent her packing. Becky Lynch, The Man? I beat her 1-2-3. Money in the Bank, I was inches from that briefcase. And at Survivor Series, one on one against Rhea Ripley, and I was this close to becoming Women’s World Champion. See, this last year has been a hell of a year. The scariest part of it all is that I’m just getting started.”

 

Backstage interview with Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell.

Jackie Redmond is with the Poison Pixie & #IndiWrestling just moments from our main event. In recent weeks, some would argue that they’ve used underhanded tactics to win. But tonight, it is every woman for herself. Then what is she implying? Indi doesn’t say it was underhanded, it’s just that the way Candice does things- Candice stops Indi, too, and says that they don’t need to defend their wins. And that is what they are: wins. But then something goes down nearby?! Nia and Liv want after each other! Tensions are running high just moments before the battle royal, and Becky walks by to say hey.

Becky knows Jackie does a bang-up job as an interviewer. The Man wears many hats, can she try Jackie’s on? Jackie says sure, and lets her have the mic. Becky is walkin’ and talkin’ as she says it is CHAOS~ back here! Pure chaos! And it’ll get even more chaotic out in the ring, because we are about to have the most important battle royal in the history of Raw. She passes by Ivy and Maxxine and stops to check in with them. Maxxine’s first time for a world title, right? Becky wants Maxxine to go out there and show everyone why it won’t be her last. Becky keeps going and says how we got here wasn’t ideal. But to Rhea Ripley, when you’re ready, Becky will be here waiting.

With that all said and done, The Man has come around to Columbus, Ohio, and she’s looking for a fight! Becky gets to gorilla, makes her entrance, and this main event is about to hit the Big Time! But will Becky win the belt here despite her losing out at WrestleMania?

Vacated WWE Women’s World Championship Battle Royal!

Mami’s misfortune is now a golden opportunity for the rest of Raw! Liv Morgan, Nia Jax, Natalya, Shayna Baszler, Zoey Stark, Chelsea Green, Piper Niven, Kayden Carter, Katana Chance, Indi Hartwell, Candice LeRae, Ivy Nile, Maxxine Dupri, and even The Man, Becky Lynch, all have an equal opportunity, but there can only be one! Who will replace Rhea Ripley as the NEW WWE Women’s World Champion?

Raw returns as Liv makes her entrance, with Natty, Candice, Indi, Zoey, Shayna, Maxxine, Ivy, Piper and Chelsea already waiting with Becky. Kayden & Katana make their entrance together as always, followed by Nia’s entrance. The belt is raised, the bell rings, and the fight is on! The field divides up to go after Nia and Piper, the biggest and the baddest in here! But they both explode free! The fans fire up as Piper and Nia storm up and start throwing hands! Nia gets the edge then HEADBUTTS! But then the others all get up. Becky fires off on Nia but Natty GERMAN SUPLEXES her! Natty puts Becky on the apron, but theN Nia scopos Natty!

Nia puts Natty on the apron, Becky gets up and around on Nia for a SLEEPER! Nia RAMS Becky into buckles, gets free, then runs in, only for Becky to POST her! Indi and Candice fight with Ivy and Maxxine given their beef over the past few weeks, and Natty puts Liv on the apron. Liv RAMS into Natty, Shayna has Becky but Becky turns that around into a BECKSPLODER! Chelsea and Piper work together, of course, going after KC Squared with Zoey Stark. Becky HOTSHOTS Shayna, Natty scoops Stark. Nia is after Shayna, Liv helps Candice with Ivy, but then goes after Candice! Ivy ROCKS Candice, but Candice kicks back!

Maxxine DUMPS Candice and ELIMINATES her! The fans fire up, “A THANK YEW~!” But then Indi DECKS Maxxine! Indi drags Maxxine up, whips, but Maxxine reverses to TOSS and ELIMINATE Indi!! The fans fire up again, “A THANK YEW~!” as Maxxine makes sure there’s no way Candice & Indi get their way! But that still leaves a dozen stars left as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and while Katana has Maxxine in a corner, Chelsea is helping Piper out of another, Kayden has Shayna in the third, and Nia CLOBBERS Liv and Ivy in the fourth! Natty and Becky are on ropes, Zoey runs in at Kayden but is sent into Shayna instead! Kayden then sits them both down, gets space, then waits on Katana. Katana SHOTGUNS Ivy down, then runs to Kayden, MONKEY FLIP CANNONBALL on Shayna & Zoey! Then MONKEY FLIP CANNONBALL onto Ivy & Maxxine! The fans fire up for the party girls, but Shayna dumps Kayden out! Then she dumps Katana, but Kayden helps Katana get back in and RANA!

The fans fire up, but Stark whips Katana! Katana reverses to put Stark on the apron! Stark fights off KC Squared but still gets a SUPERKICK! Shayna fireman’s carries Katana, tosses her out, but Kayden catches her! But Stark SUPERKICKS Kayden, she and Katana fall, DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Natty fires hands on Chelsea, Piper shoves Maxxine aside, and Nia hauls Ivy up! But Ivy clamps on a GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Nia puts Ivy up top, throws body shots, then swings, but into a HANGING ARMBAR! Stark EXPLODERS Liv, Nia SWINGS Ivy into the post! Ivy lets go and falls to the floor, Nia ELIMINATES her!

Nia soaks up the heat, but then Maxxine glares at her. Maxxine won’t let Nia’s size intimidate her! So Nia SHOVES Maxxine down! Maxxine gets back up, dodges Nia to ROUNDHOUSE! And ROUNDHOUSE! And ENZIGIRI! Maxxine runs up, but Nia blocks the boot! Nia DUMPS and ELIMINATES Maxxine! The fans boo but Nia mocks the “A Thank Yew.” Nia then runs to SPLASH Natty in a corner! Shayna is there to KICK Nia! Piper SPLASHES Becky in a corner, SPLASHES her again, then runs up at the ropes! Becky BOOTS back! Liv CLUBS away on Stark while Becky ROCKS Piper! PIper runs up again but Becky DUMPS her to the apron!

Becky runs up as Piper holds on, FOREARM SMASH! Piper wobbles, Becky SHOTGUNS  her down and ELIMINATES her! Chelsea is upset her insurance policy is gone, but then Piper drags Becky out from under the bottom rope! Piper RAMS Becky into steel steps, gets space, and CANNONBALLS into her! Chelsea fights off Nia, but those fists don’t do much… Piper clears off the desk! Piper gets Becky up, Nia still dares Chelsea to fight her. Piper HEADBUTTS Becky, puts her on the desk, and CHOPS her! Chelsea LARIATS Nia, but Nia doesn’t budge! Nia fireman’s carries Chelsea, Piper hurries to go after Nia!

Nia TOSSES Chelsea away, goes under teh bottom rope and she ROCKS Piper! Nia clinches Piper, the refs and fans freak out, URENAGE onto Becky!! Piper and Becky are both on the desk, but then Nia drags Piper up! Fireman’s carry, SAMOAN DROP onto Becky and the desk!! Chelsea is furious, but Natty DUMPS her out and ELIMINATES her!! But the refs don’t see it while checking on Becky, so it doesn’t count!? Natty is mad, she fires off on Chelsea in a corner! Natty whips, Chelsea reverses and POSTS Natty while Raw goes to break!

Raw returns once again, Becky is still down in the wreckage of the desk. In fact, it got wrecked over the break from Nia’s POWERBOMB! Stark & Shayna stomp away on Liv, Natty CLUBS away on Chelsea. Chelsea fights free, shoves Natty, but Natty RANAS! They both end up on the apron, then they start throwing hands! Natty ROCKS Chelsea, Chelsea ROCKS Natty, repeat! Chelsea BOOTS Natty into the post! Chelsea gets in safe, but Stark clotheslines Chelsea up and out to officially ELIMINATE her! Then Shayna BOOTS Natty down to ELIMINATE her, too! The teammates high-five, and they see Nia and Liv in the corners.

Shayna runs up to KNEE Nia, Stark HEEL KICKS Liv! They get Liv up, ALLEY-OOP KNEE!! But Nia CLOBBERS Stark! Shayna jumps on Nia for a SLEEPER! Stark SUPERKICKS Nia but that sends her and Shayna into buckles! Stark runs, but Nia scoops her! Nia puts Stark on the apron, DECKS her and ELIMINATES her! Then Nia runs in at Shayna! Shayna dodges, runs up, but Nia dumps her out! Stark saves Shayna, but Nia CLOBBERS Shayna onto Stark, to ELIMINATE her! The fans fire up as the final three are Nia, Liv and Becky, because yes, Becky rises like the phoenix to get back in the ring!

Nia is furious and she runs up, but Becky BOOTS her! Liv runs up, Becky ROCKS her! Becky fires off on Nia but Nia CLOBBERS her! Liv ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl Nia onto ropes! Liv then runs up to SHOTGUN Nia in the back! The fans fire up as Liv runs in, but Nia dodges the back body block! Liv runs up again, but no Code Breaker! Becky adds on, CODE BREAKER NECKBREAKER COMBO!! The fans are thunderous while all three women are down! The fans rally for Becky as she rises, and she TOSSES Liv! Liv lands safe on the apron, and Nia gets Becky in a fireman’s carry! SAMOAN DROP!

Nia runs up on Liv but Liv gets in the ring first. Nia hits a SAMOAN DROP anyway! Nia soaks up the heat from the fans, then she drags Liv up. Becky ROCKS Nia first, though! Becky fires off forearms, UPPERCUTS, and a SOBAT! Becky TOSSES Liv, but Nia DUMPS Becky! Then she runs up, but they DOUBLE HOTSHOT her! Liv and Becky get in to fire off on Nia, then reel her in! The fans fire up but Nia is too big to double suplex! Nia DOUBLE SUPLEXES Becky and Liv!! Nia drags them both into a drop zone, and then goes up a corner! But Becky & Liv DUMP Nia to the apron! Becky fires hands, Nia ROCKS her!

Nia steps through but into Liv’s CODE BREAKER! Becky goes up, GUILLOTINE LEG DROP!! Nia flops to the floor, Becky & Liv ELIMINATE her!! The fans are thunderous as it comes down to two! Liv and Becky square off, and they fire off furious fists! The fans fire up, Liv TOSSES Becky! Becky holds on, KICKS and ROUNDHOUSES Liv in return! Becky goes up and leaps in, but Liv gets under! Then Liv runs up to whip! Becky reverses, TOSSESS Liv, but Livv ROCKS Becky back! Liv drags Becky out to the apron for a risky move! They brawl, Becky kicks low and reels Liv in! But Liv throws body shots! Becky still tries but Liv fights the suplex!

Liv drops to a knee, but Becky gets around to waistlock! Liv holds ropes to resist the suplex again! Liv throws elbow after elbow, then kicks and KICKS and CODE BREAKERS! Becky staggers, Liv runs up, but Becky blocks ObLivion! Becky shifts to clinches, APRON MANDHANDLE SLAM! Liv falls, BECKY WINS!

Winner: Becky Lynch, by pinfall (NEW WWE Women’s World Champion)

Columbus fires up as Becky wins lucky number seven! She couldn’t knock Rhea Ripley off the throne, but she did survive thirteen other stars to shine bright once more! She goes out into the crowd to celebrate with the fans, and she grabs a fan sign that says “Women Run the WWE!” Becky even finds a fan wearing a Monday Night Mami shirt to celebrate with her, because as Becky said, she’s waiting for Rhea’s return as eagerly as anyone. Will The Man be the champion when that day comes?


My Thoughts:

A great Raw as both the go-home to the WWE Draft, I just hope some of the stories they’ve set up aren’t going to get shafted because of the Draft. For one, great video package to hype up the King & Queen of the Ring tournaments, and really good promo from Gunther to stake his claim to the crown. Woods also wants to get back to that, feels like he and Gunther could have a great semifinal match. Really good tag match from New Day VS Imperium, good win for New Day, and it seems Vinci has once again been separated from Imperium. Maybe the Draft will move Vinci to whatever brand Gunther & Kaiser aren’t on, and Vinci will return to that Veni Vidi Vinci persona he had in NXT 2.0.

Really good stuff in the Judgment Day story, though the pacing of the promo between Jey and Priest was odd. It felt like they were actually trying to make room for the fans to “YEET!” during it. But I do appreciate that Priest showed some respect, and then immediately didn’t by talking down to Jey. I also appreciate that Priest wants to do things cleaner than Judgment Day usually does, with how JD’s attack was all his idea, not Priest’s. Now, Priest did beat the crap outta Ricochet & Andrade after they won the match, but that was him showing his dominance. Priest VS Jey is going to be great stuff, and there is a lot of intrigue on how it’ll affect Priest’s standing within Judgment Day.

Great tag title match from Awesome Truth and DIY, and of course Awesome Truth won. The fans love Truth and mostly like Miz, they only just got the new belts after only just winning the titles at Mania. And interesting detail that Ciampa didn’t want to shake hands, but it works that it was Ciampa. He was the one that turned Heel first back when DIY was in NXT, maybe Gargano will end up following suit if things don’t turn around for DIY. That with how Candice is basically Heel and Indi is one step away from turning Heel herself, maybe we get a Heel main roster version of The Way after The Draft.

Great promo from McIntyre and Sheamus to not only bring back their rivalry but to work-shoot the whole chubby Sheamus thing from over the last week. Great match from Sheamus VS Nakamura, but clearly we’re going to get Sheamus VS McIntyre again between now and Clash at the Castle: Glasgow in June. That is going to be awesome stuff, so hopefully the Draft keeps them both on the same brand. Great Heel move from Bronson to attack Sami, there’s your Backlash Intercontinental title match. And great Heel promo from Gable, and it seems the Alpha Academy are going to follow him for now. Surely Gable pushes things too far and it’ll be Otis who stands up to him, thus ending the Alpha Academy as a stable.

Great news from HBK here to learn where NXT is going for June. Now, the UFC Apex doesn’t look any different than the WWE Performance Center but hey, still cool that they have a guaranteed Las Vegas venue whenever they want it. And great promos from a handful of the ladies before tonight’s main event, and that was an awesome battle royal. For one, very clever to have a missed elimination because the refs were busy with Nia, Piper and Becky. Now, I will say I was a little surprised Becky won, or that she was even in the match given she lost at Mania, but at the same time, why wouldn’t they go with Becky? She’s incredibly popular, her book is a New York Times Best Seller, and she will definitely carry this title well for however long until Rhea’s 100%.

My Score: 8.7/10

Zero Hour – AEW World & ROH World Trios Championships Winners Take All: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS Bullet Club Gold!

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass have had it with the Bang Bang Gang! Betrayal over greed was one thing, but Jay White helped Austin & Colten break into Billy’s house, after they broke Darby Allin’s ankle! But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “It’s the scissor guys from the Six Man Division. We’ll hit you little p*icks with that circumcision! In America, Jay White’s just an opening act. All the fans like, ‘Yo, nobody told me he’s whack!’ I sent you right back to Korakuen Hall. You like to choke on the mic? You can choke on these balls! It’s the three man Dynasty running the game. In St. Louis, everybody loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens wants his turn but Caster shouts out the other Max with “Cut my music, cut my music! Yo.” “Yo.” “Yo!” “Yo!” “YO!” “YO!” “Listen… Switchblade, you had to grow a beard, you got a kid’s face. Lookin’ like you hang outside of the six grade. Talkin’ to these kids like ‘I made you a mixtape!’ Your hype is all fake like the Donald Trump piss tape.” Bowens says okay, careful now, but he also says Caster can keep going. “Yo, I’ll treat you like a light, Switchblade’s what I switch. I’ll fulfill your fantasy and I’m a make you mah b*tch. Yo, this dude’s just making me sick, I’ll violate you so bad, you’ll have to tell the legal team about the taste of my-”

Okay, Bowens stops Caster there! The fans cheer Caster on, and Bowens says this was a cappella edition. But “ST. LOUIS, MISSOURRIIII~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans all cheer, but who passes through the Gateway with all the golden gear?

The trios sort out while fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” White steps up, as does Bowens, and they’re all fired up at the bell. But then White tags out to Colten! The fans boo but Colten and Bowens circle. They tie up, go around, end up on ropes, and the fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” as Bowens has Colten on ropes. Colten headlocks back, but Bowens powers up and out. Colten runs Bowens over, taunts him, then things speed up. Bowens drops, but Colten whips him out of the back drop. Colten then sets up but Bowens hurdles him and runs him over! The fans fire up for Bowens and he is on Colten in a corner.

Bowens whips, Colten reverses but Bowens goes up and over. Colten comes back, into a back drop! Bowens then hits a headlock takeover and the fans cheer. Colten fights up, Austin tags in as Colten powers out, then Austin blows past Bowens to trip him up! Austin says it’s too easy, but then Billy tags in! The fans cheer as Daddy Ass storms up on his son, and offers a hand? Austin takes it, and Billy helps Austin up, into a headlock and takeover! Austin headscissors, Billy kips free and runs Austin over! The fans cheer and things speed up again. Billy hurdles, blocks the arm-drag then whips, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges!

Austin handsprings through the hip toss, ducks ‘n’ dodges again, and avoids a back drop to shove, only for Billy to LARIAT him! Colten runs up, into a LARIAT! White steps in, but then steps right out when Billy heads his way! The Gunns regroup to CLOBBER their dad! They CLUB away, White tags in, and now White stomps a mudhole in! The fans boo but White RAMS Billy, fires hands, then taunts The Acclaimed. The ref has to keep Caster and Bowens back, then White CHOPS Billy. Billy just blows snot out of his nose!

White wants a timeout but there’s no timeouts in wrestling! White slips in, sneaks a tag to Colten before distracting Billy. Colten CLUBS Billy, but Billy just frowns and turns around. The fans tell Colten he messed up and Colten apologizes to his dad. Colten hugs his dad, but dad wags his finger. Then DECKS him! Billy drags Colten over, tags Caster, and Caster ROCKS Colten. Caster whips and ELBOWS Colten, then snapmares to clamp on a chinlock. Colten fights around, wrenches out, but Caster rolls, kips up and arm-drags free!

The AEW & ROH titles are now unified under the name of the Bang Bang Gang! Three men, six belts, two trios divisions now under their command! Will nothing stop AEW and ROH from breathing with The Switchblade?

 

“Life is all about the chase.”

“But it is what you chase that shapes a legacy. For some, it is the ascent to power. Or the revealing of true strength. For others, it’s achieving history. Or simply, to be known as The Greatest. On this night, for every chase pursued, an opportunity. For every path taken, a moment to create… a Dynasty.”

 

AEW Continental Championship: Kazuchika Okada VS PAC!

The Rainmaker not only shocked the world when he became All Elite, but he shocked us again when he joined THE Elite! He took this title from the Mad King, but now he has to face a Bastard! Will Pac dry up the reign here in St. Louis? Or will Okada keep The Elite on the path to a new golden age?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see what it takes to be a truly Elite champion!

The bell rings and the fans fire up already as the two stare down. St. Louis is already losing their minds getting what is itself a dream match. Pac and Okada circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Pac waistlocks, SLAMS Okada then floats all over him. Pac slaps Okada around, taunts Okada, but Okada stands up, completely stoic. Okada paces around Pac while the fans rally up again. They tie up again, Okada waistlocks, but Pac switches. Okada pries the hold open to drop toehold and waistlock. Pac fights up, wrenches and wristlocks, but Okada moves around. Okada rolls, wrenches, wristlocks, but Pac uses ropes to flip through!

AEW World Championship: Samoa Joe VS Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana!

The One True King of Wrestling Television? Well, hard to argue with Samoa Joe considering he willingly gave up the ROH World Television Championship so that he could reach the highest heights.

My Thoughts:

An awesome event for the first-ever AEW Dynasty, especially with that main event. Awesome stuff from Swerve and Joe as always, and of course a great win and crowning moment for Swerve. He’s been MLW World Champion but no offense to MLW, Swerve has been waiting a long time for a world title of this level. He did great in NXT though never getting THE NXT Championship, it was unfortunate that Vince could not figure out a damn thing to do with Hit Row, and even Swerve’s early days in AEW were hit and miss. But Swerve never gave up, he won the fans over, and now he has his moment, I’m sure Dynamite this Wednesday will greet him with “You Deserve It!”

I did skip most of the Zero Hour stuff because it’s on YouTube for free, and because that’s just an extra hour AEW needs to really trim down. If AEW is going to be doing their own 12 PPVs a year, they gotta start streamlining things, realizing some things are better for TV like Collision or Rampage and only the most important stuff needs to be here. Though I will say, great to see Mike Sydal with Matt, and then Trent goes and destroys them both for the fun of it. Chuck Taylor made the save, Trent acts like Chuck’s the one in the wrong, can’t wait to see those guys have it out. And great stuff for Cassidy & Shibata as they won, I wonder if those two stick together as a tag team.

I did still cover the Trios title match because that’s some big stuff. That’s like the one match that was still PPV preshow worthy cuz it’s certainly important. I guessed right that Bullet Club Gold was winning, but I’m surprised they didn’t cheat. But hopefully they do what I was also thinking, Bang Bang Gang needs to be part of AEW programming like Collision but also part of ROH weekly programming because they are the trios champions of both promotions now and Tony Khan needs to remember that. ROH is prerecorded, sure, but just edit in a backstage segment from tonight into ROH this week so that at least they’re on the episode.

I didn’t expect the Continental Championship to open but it was an awesome match to start us off. I figured Okada would win, but I like the sneaky way he used the ref against Pac to do it. Then combined with The Bucks winning the tag titles, we have a new Golden Elite. That Ladder Match was a little scary, though, especially when it ended up following a scary moment to end Bryan VS Ospreay. Cash also didn’t really sell getting crotched on the ladder and taking an EVP as much as he should’ve. But then, with all the foreshadowing, of course Jack Perry returns to screw FTR over and help his new friends in The Bucks. Forbidden Door may not be until June but I’d love if Jack brings House of Torture around, we get a weird alliance of HOT and Elite going towards that PPV.

Speaking of that Bryan VS Ospreay match, that was an absolute epic, but I’m unsure what to make of the finish. Bryan’s faked bad neck and such before, so maybe he was acting here for story. Ospreay is happy he won but worried he overdid it with Bryan, that could be another thing that tears him away from the Don Callis Family. Meanwhile, great Six Man Tag of House of Black VS Edge, Briscoe & Eddie. They did a great job with the black mist spot leading to the finish, great win for House of Black and I would think this gives us Double or Nothing’s TNT Championship match, Edge VS Malakai.

Following House of Black with more House of Black was a natural move, and Willow VS Julia felt rather quick. There was rumors that Julia has been nursing an injury so they probably made this a quick win to spare her from getting any more beat up. But at the same time, of course it was going to be Willow VS Mone for Double or Nothing. They were teasing that things could still change in the next month, but I feel like if Julia had defenses along the way and didn’t lose, Willow can have defenses along the way and not lose. If Mone wins, Willow’s reign will be short, but if she gets two or three defenses in beforehand, the reign won’t look weak. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to look, we all have different opinions on what builds a reign.

On the flipside, AEW kinda fast-tracked us to title matches for Roddy VS Kyle and Hook VS Jericho. They didn’t have to shoehorn turns to then shoehorn more matches onto this card, but Tony Khan seems to have pacing problems. Roddy of course won in part thanks to Wardlow, and then unfortunately, Jericho won to prolong this feud. But y’know what? Kudos to Hook taking a baseball bat as the finish. A good detail in the International Championship was Cole frowning at Wardlow. Feels like with how Wardlow almost messed up his distraction, he’s on thin ice with Cole and any misstep will get him a superkick and then kicked out of the Kingdom.

Great Women’s World Championship match out of Toni Storm and Rosa, great looks from both their gear tonight. Storm of course had Mariah May there to help, but logical move for Deonna to go after Mariah. Storm retaining made some sense, she’s just too good as this character and the fans love her so much. I’m still sticking by my idea that Mina Shirakawa is gonna come around to this title because of her connection to Mariah and how Mariah will have to choose between her two mentors. Storm can retain the title but lose Mariah so that then Mariah and Storm battle for the belt, maybe at All In London 2024.

My Score: 9.2/10
