PLAY BY PLAY

The Man opens Raw!

Becky Lynch holds her Raw Women’s Championship up high, more than ready for her new #1 contender after Elimination Chamber! The Queen of Spades is coming for her title, but Becky doesn’t seem too worried about that as she grabs a mic. “Washington DC, the Man has come around.” But no more treading water or making jokes now that we know the cage fighter is going to WrestleMania. Becky cues up footage from Shayna Baszler’s shockingly dominant performance. No other woman eliminated another, Shayna did as she promised as she took out each and every one of them! And she enjoyed every single moment of it.

After her victory, Baszler told WWE media that “Becky Lynch has never faced anyone like me, because there is no one like me.” She already drew blood, and that is just a taste of what she can do. Shayna wrecked the Chamber to send a message to Becky. “Becky, look at me when I’m talking to you.” It’s like she knew Becky would watch this video! Shayna vows to take the title, “and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it, bitch!”

Back in the present, fans cheer for Becky as she considers her response. “Now here’s the thing about Shayna Baszler.” She cut through the field in a matter of minutes, and took out the one woman it took Becky’s entire career to beat. An MMA pioneer, a top tier competitor and a two-time NXT Women’s Champion, but also “a world class scumbag.” Becky tells the “black hole of charisma” off that she may be a bitch but she’s the bitch that runs the division. Fans are strongly behind Becky as she says she used to think of Shayna as “the constipated-looking robot from NXT,” the one who refused to shake Becky’s hand. Becky sees clearly now that Shayna is the biggest threat to the reign since Becky pried this title from Ronda’s hands.

Shayna isn’t just after the title, is she? Becky knows Shayna has been lurking, looking to rewrite history. Normal people like Becky don’t beat trained killers like Shayna. Except when they do. Heart VS Skill, The Man VS Queen of Spades. But Shayna is underestimating Becky, and Becky will smash Shayna’s face in for it. Mic drop and title raise, but will Becky be able to do all that with Shayna being out for blood and gold?

 

Angel Garza w/ Zelina Vega VS Rey Mysterio!

El Latino es en fuego, but the King of Lucha Libre looks to extinguish that hot streak right here! Mysterio also wants revenge for the bare concreted DDT from weeks ago! With El Idolo still WWE United States Champion, who moves up in the ranks to head for Andrade Almas and WrestleMania?

Garza lounges on the ropes until the bell rings. Mysterio rushes Garza but dodges Garza’s counter to get a headlock. Garza powers out, Mysterio goes up and over, then comes back to tilt-o-whirl headscissor Garza into buckles! DC fires up as Mysterio wrenches and whips.

Vega shouts at Garza to get up as both he and Mysterio stir.

Mysterio crawls over and throws forearms on Garza! Garza shoves, waistlocks Mysterio but Mysterio throws him out! Mysterio dropkicks Garza out then builds speed, sliding splash!

The King of Lucha is back on top! Will he also get one more chance against Andrade and that United States Championship?

 

The Authors of Pain and Buddy Murphy “welcome” Kevin Owens to Raw.

As does Seth Rollins, with his bag of popcorn. Kevin responds by throwing his luggage at them! But he finds himself in a 3v1 mugging, and thrown into racks! Murphy kicks Kevin into trunks! The AOP throw Kevin into a bin! And dump the rack onto him! Security rushes in to back Rollins and his followers off, but the damage is done. Will Kevin be able to fight back as Rollins moves forward with “Phase 2” of his plan?

 

Stone Cold Steve Austin makes next week’s Raw “3:16 Day”!

That’s because he’ll be back on 3/16! What will the Texas Rattlesnake have to say this close to WrestleMania?

 

Raw shares Rhea Ripley’s visit to Raymond James Stadium ahead of WrestleMania 36.

Home of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now the XFL’s Tampa Bay Vipers, this stadium will also be where the NXT Women’s Championship makes history by joining the WrestleMania card. The Aussie Nightmare feels honored to be part of such history. She takes a look around, and can’t get over the sheer size. She started wrestling in front of 50 people, maybe even less. A dream is coming true and it humbles Rhea. Rhea’s dream has been to help others, but she had to first help herself find who she was.

When Rhea first came to WWE, people were all saying that she was a lot like Charlotte Flair. So since then, she made sure she would stand out differently from Charlotte. Ric Flair would say, “To be the man, you’ve got to beat the man,” aka to be the best, you must beat the best. Charlotte is certainly one of the best, and while Rhea doesn’t know what’ll happen, she knows Tampa will erupt seeing that match. Rhea vows to beat the best to become the best, but will the Riptide fail to capsize the Queen?

 

Charlotte Flair is here!

The Queen of All Eras struts down the ramp and DC lets out a “WOO~!” for her. Charlotte has a referee help her through the ropes, then she is handed a mic. “Everyone, ladies and gentlemen, did you see that package? Meet Rhea Ripley, the next big thing. The new shiny toy! Inspiring.” The video had Charlotte all fired up. What about the fans? But this is what confuses Charlotte. Rhea knows that to be the best, you must beat the best. Yet Rhea doesn’t want to be like Charlotte, she wants to be herself. Don’t lose any sleep over this because Charlotte will make this clear: Rhea is not like Charlotte, she will never be like Charlotte and there will only ever be ONE Charlotte!

So Rhea can continue to be shiny and “the next big thing” and enjoy the hype surrounding her, because it won’t last. Charlotte will remind us all why she wants the NXT Women’s Championship: to teach Rhea and everyone else a lesson. It’s one thing to be in an empty arena and talk about hopes and dreams, and another to stand in an arena of 90 THOUSAND people and be humbled by the Queen. But wait! Rhea Ripley is here! And she also struts right out to the ring. Rhea helps herself through the ropes, gets herself a mic and says, “I’m going to explain something to you.” Charlotte says we’ve heard enough from Rhea just in that video. “This is not NXT. This is Monday Night Raw!” This is Charlotte’s Kingdom! Charlotte tells Rhea she is excused.

Rhea DECKS Charlotte instead!! Charlotte can’t help but smile and laugh at Rhea’s guts. Rhea does take her leave now, a smile on her face, too. The Queen composes herself while Rhea asks how her jaw feels. But how will either woman feel when they collide in Raymond James Stadium?

 

Bobby Lashley VS Zack Ryder w/ Curt Hawkins!

The Rocky Mountain Machine is without the Ravishing Russian this week, but the Broski has his bro with him. Will any of that make a difference?

The bell rings, Lashley runs Ryder over with a shoulder then hauls him up. Lashley throws haymakers and stomps into Ryder but the ref backs him off. Lashley runs back in to RAM his shoulder into Ryder! Clearly that loss to R-Truth in the Tuwaiq Mountain Gauntlet is still bothering him…

Fans troll with “We Want Lana!” while Lashley puts Ryder in a corner and he stomps away. The ref backs Lashley off but Lashley soaks up the heat. Lashley runs corner to corner again, but Ryder knees back! Ryder hops up, but his missile dropkick misses! ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPINE BUSTER! Lashley raises a fist in victory, and drags Ryder up for a gut wrench, DOMINATOR! Cover, Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by pinfall

He may not have a trophy but he isn’t any less mountainous. Will Lashley unleash on this homestretch to WrestleMania?

 

Raw hears from Aleister Black.

But wait, someone knocks on his door?! Seth Rollins and Murphy pay him a visit. What can he do for these “gentlemen?” Well first, nice to finally meet. Murphy has told Rollins a lot about Aleister. But Aleister seems to have a number games problem, but Rollins is an expert at it. The bottom line is, Rollins wants Aleister on his side. Will he join their movement? Perhaps not. Was Rollins not clear the first time? He’ll say it plainly: Either you’re with them, or against them. Well Mr. Rollins, those sound like fighting words. In which case, Aleister accepts. Will the Embodiment of the End make Rollins #FadeToBlack? Or is he choosing the wrong side of this war for Raw?

 

Drew McIntyre VS Erick Rowan!

The Scottish Stud is up against a Big Red Behemoth! Will McIntyre chop down the Ent (living tree) before going after Suplex City?

The bell rings and Rowan circles with McIntyre. DC chants for “Drew! Drew!” but Rowan runs in! McIntyre BOOTS and CHOPS but Rowan doesn’t flinch! Rowan clamps on the claw, but McIntyre fights out. McIntyre ducks Rowan to clotheslines him out! But Rowan drags McIntyre out, only for McIntyre to send him into post! McIntyre rams Rowan into barriers, then throws him OVERHEAD! Fans fire up as McIntyre leaves Rowan behind long enough to refresh the count. Then McIntyre gets curious about Rowan’s eight legged friend. McIntyre picks up the cage, sets it down, and then grabs the steel steps! McIntyre brings the steps over, everyone chants “YES! YES!” and McIntyre SQUASHES THE BUG!!

Rowan is furious, but he gets a Glasgow Kiss first! McIntyre puts Rowan in, Rowan shoves him and charge sin, but gets post! And the FUTURE SHOCK! McIntyre kips right up to go to his favorite corner. Fans cheer and count along, 3, 2, 1! CLAYMORE!! Cover, McIntyre wins!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

Claymore Country crushes two monsters at once! He beats Rowan in the ring, and exterminates the above average arachnid in its cage. Will McIntyre do the same to Brock Lesnar’s reign at WrestleMania?

 

Liv Morgan & Natalya VS The Kabuki Warriors!

While Shayna Baszler has a match for the Raw Women’s Championship, Asuka and Kairi Sane still have their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships to put on display. But will the Empress of Tomorrow, Queen of Harts or LIVing Embodiment be able to do much of anything after Shayna shredded them like paper?

Raw returns as Asuka and Kairi dance to their own music, and then laugh it up on the mics. “Asuka desu~!” “Kairi desu~!” And they are… the KABUKI WARRIORS! Asuka talks trash in Japanese to pretty much everyone. Kairi says Elimination Chamber was awful! Asuka’s hand got hurt MORE! How is she? “It’s okay.” It’s not! Look at what Shayna did!! Asuka is the absolute best so why did this happen to her!? WHY!? Asuka is so ready to beat up someone! Anyone! Who wants some?! Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross on SmackDown, they’re mean girls! Yeah, and dumb! But before they can talk more smack on the SmackDown team, Natalya and Liv make their entrances tonight. They also show the damage done by Shayna, but aren’t crying about it. Will they feel a lot better with a win over the tag champs?

The teams sort out and Liv starts with Kairi. The Pirate Princess and Liv circle but DC is on Liv’s side. They tie up, Kairi pulls hair and puts Liv on the ropes. The ref counts, Kairi pinches Liv’s cheeks and pats her on the head, then gives her a push. Liv smiles as she slaps and shoves Kairi back! Liv goes Matrix and rolls Kair, ONE! Kairi runs into Liv’s kick, then Liv whips. Kair redirects Liv, goes up and over to headscissor Liv down! Kairi laughs and runs back in, but into a drop toehold! She hits ropes and Liv comes back for a dropkick! Cover, ONE! Liv keeps on Kairi with an arm wrench and whips her into the corner. She hits a back body check then tags in Natty. They double suplex Kairi down, then Natty covers, TWO!

Natty keeps on Kairi with a whip, but Liv grabs ropes. Fans boo because Ruby Riott shows herself. Ruby has her own marks from the Chamber, but she says she’s just here to watch. Ruby stays back while Raw goes picture in picture.

Asuka tags in and attacks Natty, and the two point out each other’s bad arms. Natty shoves Asuka then dodges the clothesline to run Asuka over with a shoulder. She whips but Asuka reverses, only for Natty to catch the hip attack. Asuka counters the waistlock to a victory roll, TWO, Natty sits on the cover! TWO and Asuka has her cover back, TWO! Natty trips Asuka, but Asuka kicks her away before the Sharpshooter gets on! The Kabuki Warriors regroup but Natty and Liv double baseball slide dropkick! The fans fire up with Natty while she makes sure Ruby stays back. Natty puts Asuka in the ring then brings her around to tag Liv. Liv rolls Asuka up, TWO!

Liv throws hands but Asuka eggs her on. So Liv fires off forearm after forearm! Liv runs but Asuka runs her over! Ruby applauds mockingly as Asuka drags Liv around by her arm. Asuka cranks on the arm for a mounted armlock, but Liv endures. Fans rally and Liv fights her way up. Liv throws forearms but Asuka throws her by her hair! Asuka toys with Liv now, scuffing her with her foot. Asuka grinds a knee into Liv at the ropes and Kairi “photobombs” the moment. The ref reprimands them both and backs Asuka off. Liv fights back but Asuka DECKS her! And stomps her! And stands on her face! Asuka drags Liv up to whip into the corner, then throws big forearms over and over! She drags Liv back into the armlock as Raw returns to single picture.

Fans rally for Liv and she fights up again. Asuka keeps her from Natty but Liv punches Kairi! Liv elbows Asuka away, then goes up and around to missile dropkick! Liv hurries to her corner and tags in Natty! The two double whip Asuka and double hip toss! Cover, TWO! Natty drags Asuka back up but Asuka BACK HANDS! Asuka chokes Natty, but then Kairi hotshots the bad arm while the ref is pushing Asuka back. Fans boo as Asuka toys with the bad arm. Asuka wrenches and yanks the arm, then tags in Kairi. Kairi climbs up and drops ax handles on the bad arm! Kairi taunts Liv but fans rally for Natty. Now Kairi toys with Natty, and tags “Asuka-nee”. Asuka climbs up and drops her own ax handles on the bad arm.

Asuka drags Natty around to tag in Kairi. Kairi climbs up once more, and drops even bigger ax handles! Ruby likes it as Kairi stands and salutes for the cover. ONE, but Kairi kicks Natty in the bad arm. Fans rally but Kairi tags Asuka in again. They double whip Natty for kick, ax kick and a camel clutch dropkick combo! Cover, TWO! The Kabuki Warriors keep their cool as Asuka looms over Natty. Asuka kicks the bad arm over and over, then runs to sliding enziguri! ARMBAR! Natty flails and gets around to hammer away on Asuka! Fans fire up but Asuka grabs Natty for a guillotine! Natty powers up, but now Sarah Logan appears. Ruby doesn’t see Sarah until she’s ringside with her.

Asuka cranks on the guillotine but Natty powers up! Natty powers Asuka up and around to a scoop slam! Both women are down but fans rally up! Asuka and Natty crawl, but Sarah and Ruby fire off on each other! Sarah rocks Ruby with knees but Liv is climbing up? Liv LEAPS onto her former friends! The Riott Squad can’t leave each other alone! But this leaves Natty alone!! Kairi tags in and goes after Natty, but Natty kicks her away and rolls her up! ONE, DISCUS LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Natty drags Kairi up for a scoop but Kairi slips out to waistlock. Natty elbows out hard but Asuka tags back in. Kairi runs, into the takedown and Sharpshooter! But Asuka is legal, and she BUZZSAWS Natty! Cover, The Kabuki Warriors win!

Winners: The Kabuki Warriors, by pinfall

Now that distractions are out of the way, will the Empress of Tomorrow and Pirate Princess pay the SmackDown Women’s Division a visit?

 

AJ Styles and the OC are here!

The Phenomenal One and his Good Brothers were about to beat down Aleister Black all over again, but the Phenom made sure they wouldn’t get away with it! These three go to the ring and Karl Anderson gives Styles a mic. “Not once but twice, the Undertaker has stuck his nose in my business, where it doesn’t belong!” Taker has taken moments from Styles! The Tuwaiq Trophy at Super Showdown, and a win at Elimination Chamber! Footage replays of that moment, and fans chant for Undertaker more now.

In the present, Styles says that “three years ago at WrestleMania, I saw The Undertaker get beat by Roman Reigns. And after the match, the Undertaker folded his jacket, took off his gloves and his hat, and laid them nice and neat right in the middle of the ring.” Taker did his fist, as if he were riding off into the sunset. He should’ve done that when the Streak ended, but whatever. The point is: it was a beautiful and powerful moment. Yet, Taker ruined it by coming back again. Whether it was ego or the paycheck, Styles will end Taker once and for all this year!

Maybe 10, 15 years ago, Styles might have been hesitant to call Taker out, but the truth is, he doesn’t see a mythical monster anymore! He doesn’t see a Phenom! Styles just sees “a broken down old man named Mark Calaway!” Taker should’ve retired in his PRIME. Styles isn’t sure why Taker keeps coming back, but he has a pretty good idea. It’s his wife, Michelle McCool! Hey, Michelle, are you watching? Time to let the cat out of the bag! They are married, “and she plays him like a fiddle!” She makes him come back, even as Taker keeps getting hurt. Michelle is the most conniving person Styles has ever met!

So here’s some advice from Styles to Taker: “Your wife is going to run you into the ground. And I’m going to help her.” Styles says he makes sure Taker DIES in the ring! Well, no, how about this. Styles will take Taker’s soul! He will do what Michelle wants someone to do! Styles challenges Taker to a match at WrestleMania! Taker, what do you have to lose? You lost your dignity, your pride, and your mystique. Now you’re just a broken down old man. Boo all you want, fans. Cheer for Taker! But we all know they don’t give a damn about Taker. So accept the challenge to fight Styles, Taker, and Styles promises will put the nail in your coffin. The strongest words anyone has ever said to the Dead Man. Will the legacy finally die?

 

Raw returns to a backstage interview with Randy Orton.

Charly Caruso knows he is waiting for Edge, so could he share his thoughts? The Viper stays quiet, but the slight smirk on his face speaks volumes. What schemes are hatching in that twisted mind?

 

WWE 24/7 Championship: Riddick Moss VS Cedric Alexander!

The Riddick Regimen is the longest reigning WWE 24/7 Champion, and is already setting records for most traditional singles match defenses. But will his time come to an end to make way for a new Age of Alexander?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Moss throws Alexander down, builds speed and runs him over with a shoulder! Alexander gets to a corner but Moss throws hands and stomps. Alexander BOOTS back! Then hops up and leaps, into Moss’s arms to Fall Away Slam Alexander into a corner! Alexander tumbles out but Moss fetches him back into the ring. Cover, TWO! Moss clamps on with a chinlock and leans on Alexander. He cranks Alexander around but Alexander endures. Fans rally up and Alexander fights up to a jawbreaker! Alexander throws haymakers then a flurry of strikes! Moss goes down, but he sends Alexander out. Alexander boots back, and step-in Complete Shots! Cover, TWO!

Moss flounders up, Alexander runs in, but Moss puts him on the apron. Alexander punches Moss away then springboards, but Moss trips him up! Alexander crashes ‘n’ burns to the mat, then Moss RAMS him into the corner! SPIKE Neckbreaker! Cover, Moss wins!

Winner: Riddick Moss, by pinfall (still WWE 24/7 Champion)

Moss takes it to the house and scores big again! Will anyone be able to strip-sack the new quarterback?

 

Raw returns to MVP in the ring.

Montel Vontavius Porter wants us to understand he’d rather be anywhere but DC. They’re not even really a state, they’re just a dot on the map no one cares about. But running them down is not why he’s here. MVP is transitioning from in-ring competitor to “absolute brainiac.” MVP has tasted gold many times, and now he will lead others to the goal. He will begin his stable and build it around a man like Edge. They go way back, MVP learned a lot from Edge. Edge just has a problem with focus. With MVP’s leadership, surely Edge will be back to the prominence he once held! MVP vows to make Edge a champion again, but he needs Edge to listen to him. Everyone wants to see Edge, but Edge isn’t here for the fans.

But Edge IS here! And he’s storming his way to the ring! MVP likes the serious expression on his face. “We about to make a bunch of money, man.” MVP wants Edge to join him in the ring to talk business. “You Think You Know Me.” Edge heads right to the ring, steps up to MVP and snatches his mic to shout for Randy Orton! “I need you to grow a set and get your ass out here right now!” MVP is upset with Edge, but says this is the problem. Edge’s mental focus is off! Out here embarrassing himself. Speaking of focusing on the wrong things, how is his wife? MVP, you shouldn’t have said that. SPEAR! But Orton appears! Orton throws hands and has Edge on the ropes. Edge pushes Orton off, and STEALS the RKO!!

Fans lose their minds as Edge glares wild eyes around. Edge goes out and decides to reclaim a move that’s his! He grabs a chair, and then another chair! Edge brings those into the ring but The Viper slithers away! MVP goes after Edge, but gets an arm triangle! Edge squeezes MVP until he’s faded out, but he’s just glaring at Orton the entire time! MVP gasps for air as Edge stands over the chair. Edge drags MVP up and makes sure Orton sees this FULL METAL RKO!! MVP hits chair, but Edge isn’t done yet. Edge grabs the other chair, and with fans chanting yes, “This is YOU, Randy!” CON-CHAIR-TO!! Fans want another, so Edge gives them, and MVP, another CON-CHAIR-TO!!

Needless to say, MVP will have to look elsewhere to start that stable. But with as unstable as Edge and Orton have become, will either man be left standing on the Road to WrestleMania? Orton hesitates to leave, and Edge gives chase! Will Edge catch up to the Viper before he can slither away?

 

Next week’s Raw will have a phenomenal contract signing!

The Undertaker will appear next week to confront AJ Styles and make their WrestleMania match official!

 

Triple H won the Arnold Sports Festival Lifetime Achievement Award!

Arnold Schwarzenegger gave HHH the prize personally. HHH says the gym teaches you everything you need to know to succeed in life. The more you put in, the more you get back. Whenever possible, inspire, support and give opportunities.

 

Raw looks at Lesnar VS McIntyre.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” the Advocate to the ranging, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World says that his client, Brock Lesnar, has demonstrated for 18 years, that he is the single most dominant force in pro-wrestling. “The list of victims is endless.” Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Ric Flair, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, HHH, and even The Undertaker. “No one, no one, has ever been so dominant for so long.”

But now, Drew McIntyre gives his introduction. Heyman spoke the truth. There has never been anyone who has dominated and conquered quite like Lesnar. Until Lesnar met McIntyre. Because when that happened, McIntyre ELIMINATED Lesnar from the Royal Rumble! And McIntyre made sure Lesnar understood it wasn’t a fluke when he gave THREE Claymores to The Beast last week. McIntyre has learned to never claim something he can’t back up. He chooses his words very carefully. Therefore, McIntyre will Claymore Lenar again, pin his ass, and become the NEW reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World at WrestleMania!

 

Charly Caruso finds Edge backstage.

Edge wants after Orton but she says Orton left the arena already. Edge seethes, but he also seems to scheme. Will Edge have a plan on how to get to Orton?

 

Aleister Black VS Seth Rollins w/ Murphy & AOP!

The Embodiment of the End refused to join the Monday Night Messiah’s mission, but that just makes him a target of “Phase 2.” Will Rollins take all of his frustrations out regarding Raw on Aleister?

The bell rings and Aleister circles with Rollins. Rollins waistlocks but Aleister goes around to hook a leg and trip Rollins up. Aleister facelocks but Rollins endures the crank. Rollins pries out to a wristlock and wrenches Aleister. Aleister rolls and arm-drags Rollins away, then arm-drags him again! Aleister headlocks but Rollins slips out to his own. Rollins throws Aleister with the takedown, but Aleister headscissors. Rollins pops out, blocks a kick to give a kick, and runs, only to miss the stomp. Aleister swings but Rollins barely avoids the Black Mass! Aleister throws Rollins out, then fakes him out to sit down crossed legged! Fans fire up as Raw goes picture in picture.

Rollins regroups with Murphy to cool down, and then takes his time returning. Aleister patiently waits as Rollins steps inside. Rollins eggs Aleister on but Aleister does not respond. Aleister ducks the boot to kip up and fire off! Rollins knees low and brings Aleister around, but Aleister slips out of the suplex to waistlock. Rollins elbows free and runs but Aleister ducks and kitchen sink knees Rollins down! Aleister brings Rollins around but Rollins rams him into a corner. Rollins runs in but Aleister boots! And KNEES! Aleister seethes while Rollins bails out again. Murphy checks on his savior while Aleister storms over. The old rivals stare down, but Rollins throat chops Aleister! And bumps him off barriers!

Rollins puts Aleister in and stomps him around. Rollins taunts and slaps Aleister, then choke shim on the ropes! The ref counts and Rollins backs off to use the ropes to snap Aleister back. Rollins soaks up the heat as he looms over Aleister. Aleister swings but misses, and now Rollins drags him up by his beard. Rollins runs, but Aleister side steps the slingblade to fire off strikes! KNEE THRUST! Cover, TWO! Raw returns to single picture as Aleister drags Rollins up. Rollins resists the waistlock and elbows back, but Aleister still lifts. Rollins elbows again, and runs to ropes! Aleister gets a hotshot, and then a slingblade! Cover, TWO!

Rollins drives elbows into Aleister’s shoulder and neck before wrapping on a chinlock. Aleister endures and fans rally up. Aleister fights up and throws Rollins off. Rollins is in a corner, and catches Aleister for a buckle shot! Rollins drags Aleister to the apron and clubs away on him! Fans jeer as Rollins gets space and KNEES Aleister back into the ring! Only Murphy cheers as Rollins stomps back into the ring. Rollins stalks Aleister to a corner and CHOPS him down! He throws haymakers and CHOPS, but Aleister staggers to another corner. The ref reprimands Rollins but Rollins doesn’t care. Rollins runs corner to corner but Aleister puts him on the apron! Rollins holds on and springboards back in, but Aleister gets clear! Aleister rallies with forearms!

Aleister fires off a strike fest, leg sweep and knee thrust! And kip up! Fans fire up, Aleister QUEBRADAS! But Murphy distracts, so he gets DECKED! Rollins rolls Aleister, TWO! Rollins kicks, Aleister ducks to boot and ROUNDHOUSE! SNAP GERMAN! Bridging cover, but Murphy attacks!!

Winner: Aleister Black, by disqualification

The disciple saves the savior and stomps away on his former rival. But Aleister turns things around! Rollins attacks Aleister to help Murphy, and then he calls to the Authors of Pain. Akam and Rezar appear and head for the ring. They all mug Aleister 4v1, then bring Aleiser up for the suplex BOMB! But here come the Viking Raiders! Erik and Ivar wage war with Akam and Rezar once again! They each are in a corner but Murphy and Rollins turn the tide! 4v2 is still in Rollins’ favor, but here come the Street Profits! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins even things out again! It’s a 4v4 fight! The resistance runs Rollins and his followers out of the ring! DC explodes with “We Want the Smoke!”

Ford tells the refs that before there’s any disqualifications, let’s just skip to an EIGHT MAN!! DC wants to see that! The Vikings and the Profits are up, and #WeWantTheSmoke. Rollins and his forces accept this challenge, and we’ll see this go down after the break!

 

8 Man Tag: The Viking Raiders & Street Profits VS Seth Rollins, Murphy & The Authors of Pain!

My Thoughts:

A really good episode of Raw to follow up a pretty good Elimination Chamber. After the perplexing character shift last week, Becky’s back to the Becky we need for this story. Intense Becky and intense Shayna is what we need for this build. And I like that we got multiple builds in the women’s tag match tonight. The Riott Squad feud helps the Kabuki Warriors win their match, and the Kabuki Warriors’ promo beforehand was really good. I get that Bliss-Cross are pretty much the only Face team on SmackDown, and it’s always fun to see Kairi tease Alexa for being short when Kairi is barely that much taller, but I really hope we get more teams in on this. The whole point Bliss-Cross made was that the titles are cross-brand, so give us more brand representation!

Riddick Moss is becoming the biggest winner out of this next phase in the WWE 24/7 Championship’s run. He hasn’t lost the title even once since taking it off Mojo Rawley, and he’s getting wins over superstars who have already held other titles. However, we still need more social media matches for Moss because that is what charmed fans up to this point. I know Moss can be funny, so let him be the serious guy in a funny situation like he was at the Funko Pop HQ. WrestleMania needs to really give us something big for this title, too. For that matter, what is Lashley doing for Mania? Maybe he could win the Andre the Giant Battle Royal? And also take the 24/7 Championship to also take it on a long consecutive reign? That’d be pretty cool.

The Edge and Orton segment was pretty good tonight. I still feel they should’ve taken a beat for someone to give us that promised medical update from last week. That explanation to us that Edge was still able to return would’ve taken care of the stupid “Oh hey Edge is returning” advertising that just takes the drama out. Edge stealing the RKO was great, and then giving MVP multiple Conchairtos was great. I still hope MVP can make that stable as a post-Mania story. Maybe that’s something Lashley could do? And maybe the story of recruiting is made into something.

Mysterio VS Garza was a great opening match, and I’m really hoping the rumored Fatal 4 Way for the United States Championship is happening. Mysterio, Garza, Almas and Carrillo are going to steal the show. And assuming Vega’s stable no longer has the title after Mania, I would love to see them go into the Raw Tag Team Division. Almas & Garza VS Street Profits would make for some great action and promos. At least, I would hope the Profits still have the belts. I really like that Aleister was brought around into the story with them and Rollins given the history with Murphy. With Samoa Joe out from injury and suspension, I hope Aleister joins Kevin’s resistance and becomes a tag partner against Rollins and Murphy. I feel like with the US Championship and WWE World Championship spoken for, the pay off for this story are the Raw Tag titles.

Styles’ promo was wild. I did NOT think he’d do a worked shoot like that. The contract signing next week will be interesting, but I would actually hope nothing physical happens. The emphasis should be on Styles wanting to beat Taker down at WrestleMania, so nothing more should happen between them from here to Mania. McIntyre beating Rowan and “killing” the spider creature was an insane moment to give McIntyre in-ring momentum towards the title match. Plus, his promo package with Heyman was really well done, too. I think a lot of people would agree that we NEED McIntyre to win and so does the WWE. Their stocks are dropping along with their viewership and attendance. Lesnar is a great Heel, but even the greatest villain needs to lose in the end. And that needs to happen on the Greatest Stage of Them All.

My Score: 8.4/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision. That’s right, it’s been 365 days since I singlehandedly put this show on the map when I won the TNT Championship int he very first episode, and went on a run with the TNT Championship that will never, ever be seen again.

And in the spirit of usual unpredictability, on the eve of the most important holiday of the year, Father’s Day, I guarantee you, Christian Cage’s Collision is going to end up being… very special.” Just what does The Patriarch have in mind for “his” show?

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remissed if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock.

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

It’s the Clash at the Castle Countdown Show!

Join Michael Cole, Kevin Owens & Big E in discussing, analyzing and predicting all the action going down in Glasgow!

 

Exclusive interview with Drew McIntyre.

Jackie Redmond sat down with The Scottish Warrior, she asked how he’s doing. Marvelous! Medically cleared in time for Clash at the Castle. How much does this event mean to him? Well, it wasn’t a thing growing up. There were no PLE’s in Scotland. It was all about making it to WrestleMania, did it. Won, that was cool. Won it again before getting screwed over, but main eventing the first PLE in Scotland? Beyond a dream come true. Then what does Scotland mean to him? McIntyre will sum it up with lyrics, Caledonia. Poetic name for Scotland. “Scotland, let me tell you that I love you, I think about you all the time. Caledonia, you’re calling, now I’m coming home.”

So when you think of Glasgow, what memories come to mind? What lessons did he learn before traveling the world? He spent four years there, at university. He can’t really talk about those lessons, not PG. But what he can share is to speak your mind, be passionate. If someone goes too far and runs their mouth, give them a “kiss” between the eyes. AKA the Glasgow Kiss. That tracks. And this isn’t his first Clash at the Castle. He was at the first, in Cardiff, and it didn’t go his way. Could he take us back to that night and how that felt?

McIntyre never felt that kind of emotion from a crowd. They were 100% in his corner, his family and friends were there, but “The Elders” had Solo Sikoa screw him over. That was a shot through Drew’s heart, through his family’s heart, through The UK’s heart, and he can’t let that happen again. Is he over that yet? Nope, absolutely not. Will he ever be? Nope. He didn’t think about it, pushed it down, but things flare it up. Ten months, still waiting for an apology, but people have such short term memory. Trauma doesn’t go away easily.

There is a lot the last year that has upset him, yet Drew’s renewed with the WWE? Why is it important to be here even though he gets upset? To be honest, he was thinking of taking time off. He was at the end of his contact, he’d just lost his sister in law, his wife’s sister, and she was struggling, the family was struggling. He went home to a wedding, got to see people he hadn’t gotten to see in so long. He wanted to think what was best for his future. But he and his wife talked, and they both agreed that it wasn’t time to walk away. You don’t walk away from the table when you’re on a heater. So they wanted to figure out what’d work for his career.

Thankfully, WWE was on the same page, they’ve gotten a situation figured out so McIntyre can give as much as he can to both family and career. He’s so obsessive with this business that it’s good to have that balance. Jackie likes that saying, “you don’t walk away when you’re on a heater.” WWE right now definitely feels like it has the heat, so what does he make of the state of the company? Everyone top to bottom is killing it, even interviewers like Jackie. We haven’t had a roster this talented in the ring and people who have found themselves. The matches are on a different level, just look at the numbers. BILLION dollar contracts!

Now it is up to the roster to get it done. The only thing that needs improving is the World Heavyweight Championship, and that means taking it from Damian Priest. More of this interview to come later on in the Countdown.

 

Backstage interview with The Alpha Academy.

Cathy Kelley is with Chad Gable, Otis & Maxxine Dupri ahead of Gable’s Intercontinental Championship match with Sami Zayn. Gable, in Montreal, you came up short- Er, didn’t win… So how is tonight going to differ? Gable says tonight, the family is in line. They are taking orders the right way. So you will see a whole different game play out tonight. They’re here, they know the plan, and they will help him win HIS championship, no matter what. Then Maxxine, you’re in a boot, how are you feeling physically and emotionally? Gable says she’s fine! Right? Tell her! She’s fine! Don’t worry about that.

What matters is that Sami’s reign ends tonight, at the hands of Gable’s family, Maxxine, Otis and- Wait, where’s Tozawa? Otis, you were supposed to keep track of him. Tozawa’s gonna pay for this on Monday. Gable storms off, Otis & Maxxine follow, but will this really go how Gable wants?

 

Backstage interview with Bayley.

Cathy Kelley is with the WWE Women’s Champion and “Michael Cole’s favorite,” and wishes her a happy birthday! Bayley thanks Cathy, and Cathy figures the celebration should be after Clash and a win tonight. Is Bayley concerned about Piper’s hometown advantage? Bayley knows how important it is to be in front of your hometown, and she has respect for Piper. Piper laid the foundation for how WWE is even here right now. But she is also the same person that has been attacking Bayley for the last month, and ran Bayley into the wall last night. Bayley is a champion who fights for what she believes in. So sorry, but she has to beat Piper in front of her loved ones tonight.

Cathy says they were going to send this back to Cole but she’ll let Bayley do the honors. Oh, of course. “Dear Michael Cole, back to you, you idiot!” Will The Role Model give herself the best birthday present possible by getting passed Piper Niven to head for SummerSlam?

 

Chelsea Green joins the panel.

She doesn’t like Cole telling everyone she’s the sidekick and valet to Piper. They’re like chocolate & vanilla. Okay, but what is all this “we” stuff? Sorry, does Cole not have experience in healthy relationships? They are going to win the title. Kevin Owens says there was a time when he won the Universal Championship with the help of a Canadian from Winnipeg, and they tried to say “they” won the titles, but that didn’t end well. Big E does bring up when Leyla & Michelle McCool did that as #LeyCool. Yes, and so it will not end terribly because it won’t end, Chelsea and Piper will be together forever.

Then how does Piper feel about her chances tonight? Oh, Miss P was born ready, so she is super confident, and she also has Chelsea in her corner so she’s absolutely ready. Then with all this pressure, can Piper pull it off? Big E says yes. Chelsea may have… unenviable qualities, but she is in Piper’s corner, and that support has helped Piper feel confident. Yes, Chelsea has feeling Piper feeling confident and pretty and rich and skinny and tanned, just like Chelsea, and that is why Piper will win. Okay, then can Chelsea go and help Piper get ready? Chelsea says Cole will be hearing from her later. But will the Hot Mess help Piper take the title from Bayley tonight?

 

Exclusive interview with Drew McIntyre, part 2.

What does McIntyre say to certain critics who look at his actions and his words, and says he’s a hypocrite? Well a lot of people have done that. Number one is Michael Cole. Using Cole’s position of power in a way that is irresponsible. He was shouting McIntyre’s praises during Pandemic Era, and while Cole said it was all McIntyre, McIntyre said that was a team effort. But McIntyre doesn’t like certain people. If that makes him a bad guy, then say hello to the bad guy. Speaking of Pandemic Era, he won the title, but no fans. And then this year, he wins in Philadelphia, but loses it right away. Has any of this made him bitter?

No, those didn’t make him bitter. It made him stronger. Others would’ve broken apart, fallen down the card, left the company, but not him. He wants the ball in his hands, the company on his back, and he can carry them both. He has then, he will now, he’s still that same guy. And this time, in Scotland, it will be absolutely perfect and all worth it. Then in order to do that, he must beat Damian Priest. What does he think of Priest? McIntyres’ seen Priest’s evolution since NXT. He knows Priest’s backstory, his struggle, and Drew respects that journey and that talent. But in some ways, Priest is just playing champion, trying to find his role.

Priest is trying to get the buzz, the cheap pop, he’s focused on the wrong things. McIntyre tried to say that but Priest just shrugged it off, tried to be Mr. Machismo. McIntyre was just trying to help. Priest has hit his potential. McIntyre has been doing this for 20 YEARS, and that will show tonight. McIntyre’s mind reads 10 miles long, Priest’s is more like a notepad. Then finish this thought: Priest VS McIntyre, for the World Heavyweight Championship at Clash at the Castle, will be… Epic. The Scots are proud of their own, and one of their own will win.

Jackie thanks McIntyre for his time, they shake hands, and he says no real need to thank him. Warrior physically, warrior mentally. But will McIntyre be champion both physically and mentally?

 

A fight’s coming to Scotland.

The Scottish Warrior said he told us it was. A good ol’ square go. A waylay. Sorry, that’s the Scottish way of saying, “A beating.” Brutal. Unflinching. Ferocious. Never ever underestimate your opponent. It’ll be the last thing you remember. The Scots are known for their temper, so let’s make a deal. You bring the crazy, they will bring the fight. This is Clash at the Castle, and this is gonna be good!

 

Undisputed WWE Championship I Quit Match: Cody Rhodes VS AJ Styles!

The American Nightmare had respect for The Phenomenal One, which is why he gave it his all back at Backlash in France. But when Styles pulled a Mark Henry style trap, the respect went out the window, and the rulebook has gone out with it! Both men can do whatever they want to the other in an effort to get those dreaded two words out of them, but who will give in and give up in Glasgow?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and so are the stakes, all just to see who is undisputed!

The ref reminds everyone the rules: no pins, no submissions, no ring counts, no disqualifications. The fans already sing “CODY! CODY RHOOODES~!” like they did just last night. The bell rings and the fans are thunderous! Cody and Styles approach, Cody kicks then RHODES UPPERCUTS! Cody fires off hands, whips Styles hard into buckles, and Styles falls back! The fans are thunderous again and Cody gets Styles up to bump him off buckles. Cody ROCKS Styles, but has to shake out that beat up h and. Cody whips, Styles reverses then runs in. Cody goes up and over, to SNAP POWERSLAM! The fans continue to sing as Cody rises up.

Styles rises, Cody springboards, BEAUTIFUL- ATOMIC DROP! Styles CHOPS, CHOPS and bumps Cody off buckles. Styles CHOPS again, then bumps him off buckles. The fans boo but Styles CHOPS again! Styles whips corner to corner hard and Cody staggers back. Cody drops to his knees, the fans taunt Styles, but Styles storms up on Cody. Styles scoops, Cody slips free to JAB, JAB and JAB! Flip, flop, fly, BIONIC ELBOW! Styles staggers to ropes, Cody pats the mat and the fans fire up. Cody runs, and he DROPKICKS Styles out of the ring! The ref checks but Styles says get outta his face. Cody shrugs and looks under the ring.

The fans fire up, because Cody brings out a TABLE! Cody puts that aside real quick to stomp Styles down, then he gets a second table! The fans are loving this even more, and Cody sets up that second table first. Cody sees Styles go around the way, so he pursues! Cody whips Styles into and over the steps! Styles doesn’t stop here, so Cody gets him up to whip him into and over barriers! The fans fire up with Cody as he goes up onto the barrier, then AX HANDLES Styles down! The fans are even closer to the action as Cody throws hands on Styles! Styles hits back, they go to the back section but Cody throws more hands!

Cody SMACKS Styles with someone’s drink! The fans cheer more, and Cody ROCKS Styles again. Cody CLAWS Styles’ back, then whips, but Styles reverses to send Cody into railing! Styles KICKS Cody, brings him around, and whips him into the fire exit door! The fans fire up as this goes backstage, and Cody brawls with Styles in the hallway! Cody SMACKS Styles off a wall, fires more hands, then ROCKS him again. They go further back, end up by the tech area, and Cody SMACKS Styles off a trunk. Styles ROCKS Cody, then CHOKES Cody with a cable! Cody endures, throws elbows, and then shoves him into another wall.

The brawl goes off into another part of the backstage area, and they reappear by the bleachers! The fans fire up as the brawl goes back down the runway! Cody climbs up on Styles to rain down fists! Fans count, Cody stops at eight to CLAW Styles’ face! Styles staggers away, the fans stay fired up as Cody CLUBS Styles on the back. Cody brings Styles around but Styles blocks the bump to ROCK Cody! The fans chant “AJ SUCKS! AJ SUCKS!” but Styles gets in the ring. Cody trips Styles, steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Styles endures while the fans “WOO~!” Styles refuses to give up, and he drags himself around. Cody pushes on the leglock but Styles still endures!

Cody thrashes around, the fans are thunderous, but Styles goes to the ropes. The ropebreak won’t save him, but they do force Cody to let go from being scraped off. Styles rests on the apron but the fans continue to sing. Cody storms up on Styles, brings him up, but Styles fights the suplex! Styles then suplexes Cody and himself up and out of the ring and to the floor! A rough landing but the fans fire up again. Both men rise, and Styles fireman’s carries! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on the desk! Cody writhes, Styles has a sinister grin, and he drags Cody off the desk, to suplex and BRAINBUSTER on the desk!!

Styles shouts, “Ask the champ now!” The ref asks, but Cody says NO! Soo Styles BOPS Cody with the mic! And TOSSES Cody into the timekeeper’s area! Cody may have even hit the ring bell! Styles finds Mama Rhodes and talks trash to her! She gives it right back that he’s all bark and no bite! Styles stalks Cody, who is busted open! Styles DECKS Cody, then throws down more fists! Styles says, “We’ve got a bleeder!” Styles drags Cody up and into the ring, then stalks him. Cody sits up, Styles soaks up the heat, but Cody fires body shots! Styles DECKS Cody, then stomps him! Styles says he’s gonna hurt everyone’s hero!

The fans boo but Styles drags Cody up. Styles fireman’s carries, USHIGOROSHI! Cody writhes, the ref checks, but Cody says “Absolutely NOT!” Styles rains down fists on Cody, going right for that bloody forehead! Cody still says NO! Styles sighs, stalks Cody, and brings him up. Cody fires body shots! Cody ROCKS Styles, ROLLING ELBOWS, then runs, but into a DROPKICK! Cody falls and bails out while fans boo Styles. Styles grins, goes out after Cody, and SMACKS him off steel steps! Cody falls back but the fans tell Styles off. Styles soaks it up and throws the top steps away. Styles then drags Cody up to the base, like he did a couple weeks ago!

The fans boo as Styles reels Cody in, but Cody back drops free! The fans cheer and Cody rests for a moment. Cody then goes into the ring, rises up, and fires himself back up. The fans continue to sing as Styles gets in, and Cody ROCKS him! And ROCKS him again! And again! Cody fires off more shots, then roars, but Styles fires off the Phenomenal Blitz! Cody ducks the lariat to BEAUTIFUL DISASTER KICK! The fans are thunderous again as both men are down! Cody roars, the fans cheer, and Cody grabs Styles for a dragon sleeper! But Styles KNEES free, then PELES! Cody wobbles, Styles reels him in, DDT right at center!

Cody sputters, but he still tells the ref, “NO!” The fans cheer so Styles fishhooks the mouth! Styles adds on a chinlock and says he will make Cody quit! Styles ELBOWS Cody in the head, then he goes out to search under the ring. Styles finds a chair, slides that in, and stalks Cody. The fans want tables but Styles KICKS Cody down. Styles then puts the chair around Cody’s head! Styles CHOKES Cody, throws down fists, then goes to the ropes. KNEE DROP on the chair!! Cody sputters, but how can he say the words when he can’t speak!? Cody still manages a “No!” and Styles is furious. Styles goes out again, and he finds a kendo stick!

Styles brings the stick in to SMACK Cody in the ribs! And SMACK him on the shoulder! And the leg! Styles says he’s gonna hurt Cody unless he quits. Styles SMACKS and SMACKS and SMACKS Cody, even while he’s down! Cody tries to sit up but Styles SMACKS him down again! Styles tells Cody to say it, but Cody shouts “HELL NO!” Styles is beside himself, and the fans continue to sing for “CODY! CODY RHOOODES~!” Styles takes off a belt to LASH Cody with it over and over and over again! Cody writhes, Styles says he’ll keep doing it unless he says those words! Styles then straps the belt around Cody’s head to pull him back!

Ironically, the blood makes the belt slip off, so Styles LASHES Cody with it. The fans tell Styles he messed up, but Styles goes for the STF! Styles wants Cody to say it, but even with Styles’ hands in his face, Cody says “NO!” The fans rally as hard as they can, and Cody pries at the hold! But is he fading out?! Blood loss, oxygen loss, Styles lets go! Styles thinks this is enough but this is an I Quit match. See Roman Reigns VS Jey Uso during Thunderdome Era. Styles is furious and says fine, he’ll wake Cody back up. Cody grabs some water, takes a swig, and brings the bottle in to splash Cody with it. Cody does wake up, and fans cheer for “H 2 O!”

Styles goes out, and he fetches a mysterious black bag! Styles says he knows what we’re thinking, but this is even better. Not tacks, but CUFFS! Styles grabs one hand and cuffs it, then gets the other! The fans say Styles is a “KINKY BASTARD!” but Cody’s hands are trapped behind him! Styles SMACKS away with the kendo stick, with no arms to guard! The ref checks with Cody, but Cody again says “NO!” Styles tells Mama Rhodes this is HER fault. Styles says Cody gets this from her! Mama Rhodes still says he’s all talk. Styles gets in her face, so she SLAPS him! And SLAPS him again!! AND AGAIN! That’s three!!

Styles grabs a chair!! Mama dares him to try! Styles backs off, but goes back to Cody, to SMACK him on the back! And again! Cody’s gotten his hands in front of him but now his back is the target! And wait, there’s more chain in the bag?! Styles wraps that chain around his arm, then goes to the apron. Styles aims, springboards in, but Cody has the chair! Cody CHUCKS it at Styles, Styles falls back and through the table!! A phenomenal crash and burn! Cody hurries to find the keys for the cuffs. Ah yes, right by the bag. The fans know “This is Awesome!” and Cody is free! Cody fires himself up and the fans are with him!

Styles crawls back into the ring, Cody CLOBBERS him with the cuffs! Styles is busted open, he runs in, but Cody dodges! Styles hits buckles, staggers, and Cody THROAT CHOPS! Then he fishhooks Styles, before a CODY CUTTER! The fans fire up again and the fans are electric!! Cody says Styles is gonna say it! CROSS RHODES!! But Cody isn’t done there, and the fans want him to keep going! Cody drags Styles back up, CROSS RHODES!! But the fans want that “One More Time! One More Time!” So Cody grabs the chair, places that down, and FULL METAL CROSS RHODES!! Styles sputters and fans chant “You Deserve It!”

Cody doesn’t want the ref to check just yet, he has more in mind. Cody has the chair, but then thinks of something else. Cody grabs the cuffs, and he puts them on Styles!

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Triple Threat: Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill VS Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark VS Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn!

The StrongEST Duo has looked near unstoppable in their relatively short reign, but here in Glasgow, it’s bubble bubble, double the trouble!

Cathy Kelley is with the NEW Women’s Tag Team Champions, and knows they are emotional after their big win. A career highlight to say the least, what does this mean to them? It means so much! They promised to win out, and they did. Those other four had zero chance when these two had ALL of Scotland behind them. And she means ALL of Scotland. No way were they letting anyone down tonight. And they plan on keeping these belts for a long, long time.

This is the moment of truth. The Punisher being Senor Money in the Bank took this title at WrestleMania 40 after The Scottish Warrior took his eye off the ball. But now, in his home country, McIntyre could have his fairytale ending, the perfect moment he could never have even dreamed of.

Or will McIntyre finally make this HIS kingdom?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly championship material!

Cover, Priest wins!

Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall (still WWE World Heavyweight Champion)

McIntyre claimed it was Punk’s fault at WrestleMania, but he can definitely blame Punk this time! Will Punk pay dearly for this? Priest survives thanks to the Second City Saint, but now The King of the Ring, Gunther, will be coming for him at SummerSlam. Will Priest definitely need some back up against Der Ring General? Or will they #ALLRISE in The Land?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Clash at the Castle, even if the Glasgow crowd wasn’t all that happy in the end. The moment Alba & Isla won the tag titles, I had a bad feeling McIntyre wasn’t going to win his match. That was an awesome match, but Priest getting stuck in the ropes was a scary moment. Hopefully he’s okay, that definitely had to suck. But a very clever move to have a ref spot and CM Punk to be the second ref. And they framed the shot so perfect to be a plot twist for us watching at home. Again, the crowd wasn’t happy about it but that’s just good storytelling for this ongoing McIntyre VS Punk feud. If McIntyre doesn’t give Punk like three Claymores before winning at SummerSlam, it won’t be enough payback.

But what a great moment for Alba & Isla to win here. The Women’s Tag Triple Threat was maybe a little too fast and too furious as Jade did botch that springboard attack, but she didn’t let it bother her. And then great use of the Triple Threat format for Alba & Isla to snipe the win, this can definitely turn into a feud between the Raw teams while Jade & Bianca maybe have to fight back up on SmackDown, or maybe even fall apart as a team. Really, anything can happen now. And as great as Piper was tonight, for the same reasons as McIntyre not winning, Piper did not win because Bayley is getting on that underdog Face champ track again, heading for SummerSlam and Nia Jax at full speed.

Great stuff in the Intercontinental Championship. It wasn’t quite how I saw it going, but Otis coming so close to hitting Gable was really good, and Otis rising above to worry more about Maxxine than anything else was a good move. Gable loses again, surely won’t get another title shot, but might end up having a match with Otis to kinda determine if Otis breaks free or is forever under Gable’s command. Sami can face just about anyone between here and SummerSlam, but I’m thinking it’s either Bron Breakker or Ilja Dragunov given how those two are bringing the intensity, which Sami can certainly match when he really wants to.

And then that I Quit match, as an opener that was like, 40 minutes I think, that was some great stuff. Naturally Cody found a way to bleed, and they got Mama Rhodes in on the action in a great way. But I do feel Styles giving up to the steel steps being brought in was a bit anticlimactic and abrupt. Maybe they realized they were going long and didn’t want to take the entire first hour just to get all the plot points in. But as great as Styles is, of course Cody was retaining here. Maybe, just maybe, Styles tries to win MITB for that one last chance, but he’ll have to qualify first so we’ll see how that goes. Meanwhile, Bloodline making their presence known, you can bet we’ll get a Six Man Tag of Solo, Tama & Loa VS Cody, Randy & Kevin, and we probably get Solo VS Cody for MITB.

My Score: 9/10
