PLAY BY PLAY

Raw opens with A Moment of Bliss!

Alexa has her new set all set up, with a doll trapped inside a cage…? Alexa says her guest needs no introduction, but she’ll give him one anyway! This is the 14-time world champion, the Viper, the Legend Killer, “and my favorite superstar,” Randy Orton! Orton makes his entrance and goes to the ring, despite his last Moment of Bliss not going so well for him. Orton picks up the mic from the chair but doesn’t sit. “Somebody’s in a foul mood.” But Alexa gets it. She wouldn’t feel so phenomenal if this happened to her last week. Footage replays of The Fiend making his presence known and making sure Orton didn’t beat AJ Styles in their contender qualifier match.

In the present, Alexa giggles before she says, “I cannot believe he did that to you.” But has Orton ever asked himself why Bray’s doing this? Alexa doesn’t know Bray as well as Orton does, but maybe just ask yourself, “Self, why would The Fiend do that to me?” Orton tells her that he’s known Bray a long time and knows him very, very well. But The Fiend has not formally introduced himself. But Alexa has. Fiend is one of her best friends. Well the truth is, Orton and The Fiend have a lot in common. The one difference, though, is that Fiend’s pain and suffering, he wears it on his exterior. Orton has all his pain and suffering bottled up, tucked away deep down, so that he can blend in.

“Now the voices. I hear voices. And the Fiend hears voices, too.” But the voices The Fiend hears are Orton’s. Well that’s not what Fiend told Alexa. Well he didn’t tell her everything. He didn’t tell her how years ago, Orton had to make a choice. Orton had to figure out what Bray’s weakness was. Orton found it, and burned it to the ground. “So now, I know what I need to do. I need to find The Fiend’s weakness.” And y’know what? Orton’s looking at her. Alexa chuckles, and asks if that’s what the voices in Orton’s head are telling him. Is that what he hears? Or are they lying to him? Alexa gets serious as she asks, “Who’s manipulating who?”

The lights start to go out, and Orton says, “See what I mean?” Alexa says, “See what I mean?” Either way, The FIEND appears, as Orton has Alexa in his arms! It’s a stand off as Fiend approaches slowly. Fiend holds his arms out, and Orton hands Alexa over, then bails out! Orton asks The Fiend, “Who’s laughing now?” The Viper is playing a dangerous game with Bray, but does he have what it takes to win it?

 

Symphony of Destruction: Jeff Hardy VS Elias!

This is an extreme encore of the back and forth between the Charismatic Enigma and the Drifter! Elias still thinks Hardy was the man behind the hit ‘n’ run, but will he finally open his ears to the truth as these two make painful music together?

Raw returns and Hardy makes his entrance, followed by Elias’. The bell rings and Hardy circles with Elias. Elias runs in and kicks but Hardy hits back! They brawl with haymakers and body shots, Elias knees low. Elias whips, Hardy kicks him back then clotheslines Elias out! Hardy swings to dropkick Elias to the ramp, then goes out to fetch a fiddle. Hardy gets some space to run and leap, but into Elias’ KNEE! Elias drags Hardy up to bump him off the apron, then Electric Chair lift, for a TOSS to the apron! Hardy crashes and burns but Elias drags him up to bump him off the grand piano! Wait, the piano is doing something on it’s own? Elias knocks and opens it up, it’s R-Truth!?

Truth kicks free of the piano, his hiding spot has been ruined! Erik, Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak run down! Hardy back drops Gulak, Gran Metalik runs in and Elias CLOBBERS him! The 24/7 Championship chase has moved on as Lince Dorado comes by, but Elias SMACKS Lince with a guitar anyway! Hardy SMACKS Gulak for good measure! Hardy and Elias stare down after that Fender bender and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Elias drags Hardy up to throw forearms in the ring. Hardy counter punches, backs Elias down and whips, but Elias reveres, only for Hardy to run him over! Atomic drop, leg splitting leg drop, basement dropkick! Then a splash! Cover, TWO! Hardy fires up and claps to rally fans. Hardy kicks but no Twist just yet! Elias gets the dragon sleeper but Hardy slips out! Elias switches out of the waistlock to RAM Hardy into a guitar wedged in the corner! Hardy goes down, Elias drags him to a cover, TWO! Hardy survives that power chord but Elias keeps his cool.

Elias brings out guitar picks, and puts them in between his fingers like claws! Hardy sits up, Elias drags him up to PICK PUNCH him! And again! Hardy flounders while fans give thumbs down, but Elias digs the picks into Hardy’s face! Hardy goes reeling but Elias stomps him out. Elias follows after and brings Hardy around to bump off the drums! And again, and then he plays a quick rim shot to BASH Hardy off the cymbals! Elias stalks Hardy to the announce desk but POSTS Hardy first! Elias watches Hardy flounder, and then he runs in, but Hardy moves! Elias’ knee gets the GONG!

Hardy clubs Elias to the desk, then throws him into the drum set! Hardy stomps Elias into the barriers, drags him up and puts him in the ring. Hardy sees there’s one more guitar and picks it up. Elias gets up and kicks Hardy first! Elias POSTS Hardy, then reels him into another Electric Chair! Hardy spins around to huricanrana Elias away! But Elias has the guitar! Hardy boots Elias, WHISPER IN THE- GUITAR!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Elias tries again, TWO!! Hardy flounders out of the ring, Elias takes the rest of the guitar apart, and has just the neck. Elias shouts, “You wanna try and end my career? That’s exactly what I’m gonna do to you!” Elias has the splintered end aimed, but Hardy moves, Elias JAMS into the speakers! Elias gets a bit of a shock!

Hardy gets up, grabs the CELLO and SMASHES Elias down! Hardy then bumps Elias off steel steps, puts him on the table as he clears off instruments, and then makes sure Elias has a few fiddles. Hardy then goes up the steps, up the corner, and onto the post! SUPER SWANTON THROUGH THE STRINGS!! Cover, Hardy wins!!

Winner: Jeff Hardy, by pinfall

Hardy has the tambourine to shake it out, and he heads on to leave Elias singing the blues! Will Hardy be on to bigger and better now?

 

Matt Riddle finds Keith Lee backstage.

Sup, bro? How excited is he for tonight’s Triple Threat? One of them faces Drew McIntyre for THE WWE Championship! Riddle is nervous. He barfed up breakfast! But imagine if one of them became champion! It’d be a dream come true. Keith had his chance but Riddle hasn’t faced McIntyre at all. “But bro, he seems like such a chill dude,” and Riddle wants McIntyre to say that line from Austin Powers. “I’m dead sexay~!” Okay, bad accent. How’s Keith’s Scottish- Oh, he’s gone. Riddle shrugs it off, but will it be him, Keith, or AJ Styles that faces the champion after tonight?

 

Mustafa Ali speaks.

“Ricochet, why can’t you see what I see? Why can’t you see that you’ve been pushing the same boulder up the same mountain, only to fall back down to the ground week after week?” Why can’t Ricochet see what is happening to him has already happened to each member of Retribution? Why can’t Ricochet see that the promises are turned into lies, and then everyone is discarded and forgotten? Why can’t Ricochet see that he should be with them? Slapjack used to be blind, but Ali saw the corruption. Ali showed Slapjack was “left a husk of a man.” While the world rejected Slapjack as a joke, Ali saw him as a weapon.

Ali says Ricochet has made his decision not to join. So tonight, Slapjack makes Ricochet face the consequences. Maybe, just maybe, Ricochet will see what they see.

 

Ricochet VS Slapjack w/ Mustafa Ali!

The One and Only was definitely all alone against Mustafa Ali, and because the Beacon had his cohorts ringside, he caught Ricochet in the Koji Klutch. But will Ricochet be the one to make Retribution see that they’re the ones seeing things the wrong way?

Raw returns as Retribution makes their entrance. Slapjack gets in the ring, but conspicuous by their absence are the other members, Mace, T-Bar and Reckoning. Perhaps Ali wants to show Ricochet it won’t take numbers this time. The bell rings, Ricochet rushes Slapjack, gets around and springboards to crossbody! Ricochet throws haymakers, throws body shots, then CHOPS! Ricochet keeps Slapjack cornered, whip shim corner to corner, then runs in for an elbow! Ricochet throws more forearms, tells Ali to back off, but Slapjack ROCKS him with a right! Slapjack puts Ricochet in the corner but Ricochet BOOTS him! And rocks him with an elbow!

Ricochet goes up, but Slapjack yanks him down! And then runs to CANNONBALL! Ali grins as Slapjack covers, TWO! Slapjack seethes as he stomps Ricochet then digs him into the mat. Slapjack digs his fingers into Ricochet’s head as he wrenches the neck. Ricochet endures, powers up, and throws body shots. Ricochet forearms but Slapjack RAMS him into a corner! Ricochet boots Slapjack away, somersaults and shotgun dropkicks! Both men are down but Ricochet is up. Ali shots at Slapjack but Ricochet throws more haymakers. Ricochet whips, Slapjack reverses but Ricochet clobbers him with forearms! Ricochet fires off fast hands and knees to put Slapjack in a corner.

Ricochet rams in, goes out and springboards to flying clothesline! STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO! Ali calls in reinforcements! Now T-Bar and Mace appear, but Ricochet sends Slapjack out at them! Ricochet builds speed and FLIES to bowl everyone over! Ricochet drags Slapjack back up, put shim in the ring at 5, then follows. Ricochet aims from the corner, Slapjack slowly rises and Ali warns him. But Dana Brooke shows up? She SLAPS Ali! Dana wants to know where Reckoning is! Slapjack rolls Ricochet, TWO! Ricochet ROUNDHOUSES Slapjack, triangle dropkicks T-Bar and enziguris Mace!

Ali distracts Ricochet, avoids Ricochet’s swipes, and Slapjack reels Ricochet in for a TORNADO SAIDO!? Cover, Slapjack wins!

Winner: Slapjack, by pinfall

What a unique move! About as unique as Slapjack. Will Retribution keep piling it on until Ricochet cracks under the pressure?

 

Raw presents Miz TV!

The Hollywood A-Lister and Guru of Greatness welcome us back to the Most Must-See Talk Show in WWE. As the star of his own reality show on USA Network, Thursdays, and the #FaceofUSA, Miz was able to make some phone calls and get an exclusive interview with one of their opponents. “He’s big, he’s Irish, he loves fighting and hates tanning,” and before he teams with McIntyre tonight, he’s here! It’s the Celtic Warrior, SHEAMUS! Sheamus makes his way out and joins them in the ring. Miz welcomes Sheamus and asks about Thanksgiving. Is he a turkey guy? Or does he go straight for sides? How about Sheamus hit them up-side their heads if they don’t get to the point?

Whoa, now, Fella! They’re opponents tonight, but this is a friendly interview. This is about getting to know Sheamus. “Know thine enemy, know thyself.” Are they done wasting time? Look, Sheamus. This isn’t about Sheamus, this is about McIntyre. And there it is. What do they want to know about him? Well… Two weeks ago, Sheamus made one of the most heartfelt gestures by helping return McIntyre’s family chest from Scotland. Major feels. But what has Sheamus gotten in return? No sword? Sheamus got shafted. Miz says there’s more than meets the eye. “Hey, John.” “Yeah?” “Why do you think Drew forgot about Sheamus?” “He had something better to do?” Correct! And success has gone to his head. CORRECT. Or maybe that Sheamus would be #BeJealous of McIntyre! COOOOOOOOOORRECT!

Just from him to them, Sheamus doesn’t give someone a gift expecting something. They were McIntyre’s heirlooms. They’re like brothers, they go way back. Oh how nice. Save the sappy stuff. McIntyre has something Miz wants, and something Sheamus wants: The WWE Championship. And if they’re really brothers, or friends, or whatever, then McIntyre would give Sheamus a title shot. As soon as Miz cashes in his Mr. Money in the Bank contract, becomes WWE Champion once again, Morrison is first in line. That is what real friends do. So how about this, Fella? Sheamus cashes in years of resentment and Miz cashes in the MITB contract!

Sheamus laughs. People don’t think much of Miz but he has his moments. That was hilarious. Miz asks how it feels to be an afterthought. To know that McIntyre is up top and Sheamus is at the bottom. When was the last time Sheamus even tasted world championship gold? Five years ago? And for what? Two months? Sheamus was the top of the heap, but now his best friend is there and he let it happen! If Sheamus wants to laugh, laugh at his career, because that’s the joke! Sheamus gets up and so do Miz and Morrison. Sheamus takes off the jacket, sets it aside, and tells Miz “that’s the difference between me and you.” Miz talks his mouth, but Sheamus will just use his hands. And the fight is on!

Sheamus DECKS Morrison, tosses Miz, but Morrison jumps on! Sheamus throws him off, stomps him down and throws more hands! Miz returns to SMASH Sheamus with the briefcase! And again! And again! Miz and Morrison have fired the first shot, but will McIntyre make sure to fire back harder when they have their tag match?

 

Asuka & Lana VS Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler!

Before making their entrance, the Empress of Tomorrow and Ravishing Russian discuss backstage. It’s mostly in Japanese from Asuka but Lana just nods and agrees. They fire up and Asuka heads out first! Sarah asks Lana about that strategy talk, but Lana says we wouldn’t understand. Just know that they’re about to beat the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions again! Will they find a way to do that twice in two weeks against two angry and powerful opponents?

Raw returns as Lana makes her entrance. Sarah interviews Nia and Shayna now, asking about that loss last week, their first as a team. How confident are they in this rematch? Nia says, “First of all, ew. Second of all, last week was a fluke.” They made a mistake, Lana and Asuka got lucky. Shayna says she did her part. Nia was busy not putting Lana through a table! So this is Nia’s fault?! This is what Shayna has to deal with. “As an athlete, losing to Asuka, that’s one thing. But Lana? Are you serious?!” Nia says no mistakes. Tonight is their A Game, bringing Asuka to her knees and smashing Lana through the table again. The tag champions make their entrance and this second try begins!

Shayna starts with Lana and they tie up. Shayna sweeps the legs and tells her to get up. Lana does, Shayna waistlocks and slams her down. Lana gets away, Shayna waistlocks again but Lana blocks the lift to drop toehold, and facelock! Lana holds on as Shayna rolls, then Lana Oklahoma Rolls, ONE! Shayna CLOBBERS Lana, then tells Nia she’s got this. Lana kicks Shayna then tags Asuka! Asuka dropkicks Shayna down, Nia runs in but Asuka baits her in and Lana dumps her out! Lana and Asuka run to double baseball slide, but they get caught! The tag champs double SWING them into the barriers, and again, and again! Shayna and Nia dump Lana and Asuka down, and Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Nia scoops Asuka, but Asuka slips out to tag Lana! Lana gets in, fires off kicks and hands, but Nia fireman’s carries. But Lana shifts to a sleeper hold! Nia throws Lana off, but Lana is up again! Nia blocks the slap and ELBOWS Lana down! Nia kicks Lana around, drags her up and shouts, “Who do you think you are?!” Nia chokes Lana on the ropes until the ref counts 4, and then throws her away! Nia drags Lana back up, TOSSES her across the way, and Lana flounders to the corner. Nia runs in and corner splashes! Lana is down, Asuka shouts for her to get up and Nia dares Lana to try. “You’re pathetic!”

Lana hits back but Nia pushes her down to tag in Shayna. The champs mug Lana and Nia shoves Lana down. Shayna gets a leg and pulls on it with the toehold. Lana endures, reaches for Asuka, clubs Shayna but Shayna just turns her over to isolate the ankle! Shayna STOMPS Lana’s foot! Lana crawls but Shayna drags Lana up to whip her out of the ring! Lana tumbles down, Nia tags in and slaps Lana around. She throws Lana into barriers! “You think you can hang with us?!” Nia drags Lana up and scoops her to then aim for a post. Lana slips off to POST Nia!! The ring count is 7, Lana gets in! Nia gets in at 9.9 and tags in Shayna!

Shayna grabs Lana, but Lana still tags Asuka! CODE BREAKER for Nia! Hip attack for Nia! Shayna runs into an elbow, and then a boot! Asuka goes up, missile dropkicks Shayna down, then adds a hip attack! Cover, TWO! Asuka fires up to fire off kicks! Asuka runs but Shayna dodges! DOUBLJE ROUNDHOUSES take both women down! But Lana tags in! Lana goes up top, bad leg and all, to LEAP, for a crossbody! But Shayna rolls through! And pops Lana into the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! Nia yanks Asuka down, Shayna drags Lana away, but Asuka fights Nia off and gets in to save Lana! Lana covers, Lana and Asuka win!!

Winners: Lana & Asuka, by pinfall

Nia can’t believe it! The Raw Women’s Champion and Ravishing Russian have beaten the tag team champions again! They get out of there as fast as Lana can limp, will there be a third time around, with gold on the line?

 

Drew McIntyre finds Sheamus backstage.

McIntyre asks if it’s alright. Oh is it somehow funny? Miz using that briefcase? Well a little. But Miz was right: that was must-see TV. Sheamus admits there was some fun in that. But thanks for (not) coming out there to help him. If the roles were reversed, Sheamus would do the same. See? This is why they get along so well. Now is he ready to knock the heads off those two muppets? Of course! That was the appetizer. The match will be the main course!

 

Xavier Woods w/ Kofi Kingston VS Cedric Alexander w/ The Hurt Business!

With the controversy in the Raw Tag Team Championships match, things continued, and ended up going the New Day’s way anyway! Will Alexander help the Hurt Business make up for those losses?

Raw returns and Kofi says that just because Thanksgiving has moved on doesn’t mean they stopped being thankful! In fact, they’re very thankful that Xavier Woods, aka Austin Creed, is a pivotal part in the revival of the greatest video game television network, G4! Woods says being in the WWE is great, being the future King of the Ring, oh it’s happening, that’s great. But this is also great, because video games are his happy place. They’re where he comes from, it’s where his people are, so he wants to thank everyone who has ever even been in an UpUpDownDown video, ever watched an UpUpDownDown video or even bought something from UUDD Shop! If you’ve supported him in any way, thank you and it means more to him than you’ll ever know. #CreedForG4!

But to practice the new hosting responsibilities, Woods will give us a recap of how the Hurt Business failed to take the W, W, E, Raw, Tag, Team, Championships~! Not once, not twice, but TREE TIMES, brotha! And it all started just two weeks ago! Flashback transition for the footage. Alexander took the Daybreak in part one, then there was some cheating in “part deux.” It cost Hurt Business because of the count-out! And in that same night, part three was the restarted match, Woods sunset flips Benjamin! Hurt Business must be hurting! But speaking of Hurt Business, they make their entrance to interrupt!

“You clowns are in desperate need of a wake-up call from this ridiculous dream sequence that your in.” MVP says the math is off. It is 2-2, because the referees raised their hands when New Day got counted out. But that’s okay! Next time the New Day puts the titles up, their historic reign will all seem like a distant memory. Because Hurt Business just won’t take the titles, they will hurt the New Day. This ends with the New Day sent into the next dream sequence. Alexander says it was “pure, dumb luck” that helped Woods pin Benjamin. That luck runs out against Alexander! Alexander will show them why they’re the Hurt Business! Woods better make that G4 job a dream come true, because Alexander’s going to be his nightmare!

Woods hands Kofi his trombone, and Alexander attacks! He pulls the title belt off Woods and says this is going to be his whether we like it or not! The ref tries to restore order as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Woods fires off furious fists on Alexander! Woods then CHOPS Alexander, bumps him off buckles, and throws body shots and more CHOPS! Woods wrenches, clubs the arm, then wrenches again. Alexander ROCKS Woods back and knocks him down! Alexander runs, Woods stays down then clobbers Alexander with an elbow! Alexander bails out, Woods WRECKS him with a dropkick! Woods puts Alexander in, GET OVER HERE gets blocked! Alexander hangs Woods out to dry on the ropes! Alexander KICKS Woods down, finally takes his shirt off, and SMOTHERS Woods with it! The ref reprimands and Alexander stops, to then club away on Woods’ back!

Alexander wraps on a rear bearhug, digs his elbows then pulls on a leg. Woods endures, Alexander drags him into a chinlock. Woods fights up, throws body shots, and throws Alexander away. Alexander comes back but misses in the corner, and Woods CHOPS! Alexander just grits his teeth and headlocks again. Woods arm-drags free, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again! Alexander throws body shots and clamps on another chinlock. Woods uses a jawbreaker to get free! Both men slowly rise, Kofi rallies for Woods while MVP coaches Alexander. Woods CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! And chops chops chops chops! Woods whips, Alexander reverses but Woods slides under to ROLLING ELBOW!

Woods rallies, LEG LARIATS, and fires up as Alexander flounders! Mule kick and Woods puts Alexander on the ropes, for the running slide attack! Kofi is fired up for Woods as he gets in, HONOR ROLL! Cover, TWO! MVP coaches Alexander as Woods drags him up and reels him in. Alexander resists the lift but Woods clubs him. Woods gets Alexander up, Alexander slips out to BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Alexander grits his teeth while Kofi keeps clapping and MVP keeps shouting. Alexander kicks Woods at the ropes, and again, and again, and again! The ref counts, Alexander stops at 4, but he has Woods on the apron. Alexander brings Woods up, Woods resists and the two fight for suplex control.

Alexander mule kicks and shoves Woods to barriers, then he DIVES! But Woods sends Alexander into barriers! The ring count climbs again, Woods puts Alexander in at 6! Woods gets in at 8, clutches that back, but Alexander hits LUMBAR CHECK!! Cover, Alexander wins!!

Winner: Cedric Alexander, by pinfall

MVP and Benjamin are relieved that their young associate just scored big! He is a bit too fired up though as he goes up the ramp without them. Is Alexander going into business for himself?

 

AJ Styles talks with Jordan Omogbehin backstage.

Styles is considering a gold chain of his own, but then Riddle comes by to talk with “Skipper.” What does he want? Big match tonight, y’know. The “Sudden Death” Triple Threat. This is serious. Yeah it is! The winner gets a title match! Riddle’s never had the world title. Styles had the title, but he lost it, and hasn’t had it back since. Well that will change when Styles wins tonight’s match. Well hop out of the way, Skipper, this stallion is getting the carrot tonight. Omogbehin laughs, and Styles asks why. Because Skipper is also the name of Riddle’s pet bunny. How does he know that?

Never mind! It doesn’t matter about that. Plus, rabbits don’t skip, they hop. Name your rabbit “Hoppy.” Can’t, that’s his turtle’s name. Also, Styles reminds Riddle about Skipper the rabbit: he’s got great ups; is very furry; and is pretty cute. Styles shoves Riddle. Is that cute?! Whoa, what’d he do? Styles has no time for this! He and Jordan heads out but Riddle says he’ll get them back. Because that match is NEXT!

 

WWE World Championship #1 Contender’s Triple Threat: Keith Lee VS Matt Riddle VS AJ Styles w/ Jordan Omogbehin!

The Limitless One beat Bobby Lashley, the Original Bro beat the Fella, and though he had help from The Fiend, the Phenomenal One did beat The Viper. But who wins this star-studded match to take on Drew McIntyre at TLC?

Riddle throws Styles into barriers, but goes up for Keith to DECK him! Styles gets up, Keith knocks him off the apron, then Keith builds speed!

Backstage interview with The Miz & Morrison.

They just saw Styles become #1 contender, but Charly Caruso wants to ask them about earlier tonight on MizTV. They like watching that again, but Charly says their plan to stir the pot only backfired. Do they have a new strategy? Is that a real question? Do they look like idiots? Of course they have a plan! They set their eyes on Orton, and boom! The title is now on McIntyre. We just saw a new #1 contender be named in Styles, so McIntyre will have to worry about that. And then there’s tonight’s tag match, with Sheamus, who you can’t trust. And of course, Miz has THE MITB briefcase. CHA-CHING!

Charly is hearing all this, but it sounds like a bunch of facts and no real plan. Wait, Morrison has an idea! Let’s leave! They go, but will they be able to cook up a strategy for Sheamus and McIntyre?

 

Dana Brooke VS Reckoning w/ Retribution!

The Flex Appeal was blindsided by Retribution’s lone female superstar and it kept Dana from being part of Survivor Series! Dana wants revenge, will she get it by ruining Reckoning’s Raw in-ring debut?

Styles and Omos talk more backstage.

Miz and Morrison come by and applaud that “phenomenal performance.” What better way to celebrate than with pie? It’s peach because Styles is from Georgia. Okay cut the crap, you two. Styles knows how hard it’ll beat to beat McIntyre cashing in, so they want Styles’ help. And he’ll do it! Wow, really? They didn’t think he’d be so willing. Wait, why is he so willing? They haven’t figured it out? Styles would have an easier time beating Miz at TLC than McIntyre. Morrison agrees. Sorry. But Styles says, “I’ll see you out there, champ.” Oh, and he’ll accept the pie after all. Look at that pie, baby! Peach pie is good pie. Omos says that’s not a pie, that’s a cupcake. Is it just cuz he’s so big? Anyway, will Styles get an even easier time at the PPV when Mr. MITB becomes THE WWE World Champion?

 

MVP finds Riddle backstage.

What happened, bro? His opportunity died a sudden death. Well losing sucks. But at least Riddle had the opportunity, unlike Lashley because MVP cost him. What did he say? Hey, c’mon, they now have a bunch of free time for his business shoots. So he wants to pitch MVP now? No, Riddle’s not really a baseball fan. But Riddle does love gardening. And y’know what’s hard about gardening? Weeding. You can hire Lawn Bros to make your place weed-less! Then if you and your bros get the munchies from all the weed, Riddle can team up with Dunkin’ to form “Bronuts!”

MVP is already tired. These ideas are dumb, Riddle is ridiculous, and MVP is glad Riddle lost. MVP pie faces Riddle and Riddle gets riled up! But then Lashley shows up to ram Riddle into trunks and put him in the HURT LOCK! Riddle flails but fades and Lashley throws him down. “Pleasure doing business with you, bro.” The Hurt Business CEO just put the hurt on Riddle, but will he come to pay for it?

 

Sheamus and Keith Lee meet backstage.

What does Keith want? Keith says it’s none of his business, but some of the fellas think Sheamus is going to turn on his friend. Well they’re right: it’s none of their business. Sheamus is going to go out there and “turn” on his tag partner.

 

Charly Caruso is in the ring.

She welcomes her special guest, Drew McIntyre! The Scottish Warrior makes his entrance, complete with kilt, claymore sword and pyro! Charly says McIntyre has been very busy lately, but just take us back to when he beat Orton to become a two-time world champion, and his all-out war with Roman Reigns. McIntyre says it feels “damn good” to once again be WWE Champion. And sometimes, you have to get knocked on your arse to figure out who you are. McIntyre said he’d Claymore Orton’s head off, pin him and get the title back. What happened? He Claymore’d Orton’s head off, pinned him, and got the title back. McIntyre is a man of his word.

McIntyre also told Roman he’d humble him, knock him off his pedestal, and bring that “arrogant bastard” down to Earth. It did happen, too. You can tell a lot looking in a man’s eyes. Roman started the match confident as could be. And why not? Roman is great as he says he is, 99% of the time. But then things turned to confusion and frustration after McIntyre kicked out of every Spear! Then the part that upsets McIntyre, cousin Jey had to interfere and Roman won! “Roman, you know what I’m about now. Our paths, they’re gonna cross again.” Roman won the battle but McIntyre will win the war, #BelieveThat. But let’s look to the future and TLC!

Charly agrees, and we know tonight that the title will be defended against AJ Styles. How does McIntyre keeps his eyes on that while worrying about Miz and the MITB contract? There’s no beef with Styles. Everyone wants the title. And that match is a treat for the fans because it will be phenomenal. But the only thing keeping Miz relevant IS that briefcase, so Miz shouldn’t cash it in. If he does, McIntyre will have to take Morrison, fold him up, shove him inside the briefcase, and then stick that “where the sun don’t shine.” Get it? Got it? GOOD! Time for the tag match!

Drew McIntyre & Sheamus VS The Miz & John Morrison!

The Celtic Warrior joins the Scottish Warrior, and it’s time to go to war with the Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century! *stare off into the distance* But will McIntyre be able to keep his eyes on the prize when even Styles wants Miz to cash in tonight?

Raw returns and speaking of Styles, he and Omos have appeared on commentary! Miz and Morrison make their entrance, the teams sort out, and Miz starts with Sheamus. Sheamus tackles Miz into the corner, fires off hands then hits Morrison, too! Sheamus brings Miz up for a Fall Away Salm! Miz gets out., McIntyre puts him back in and Sheamus CLOBBERS Miz! Sheamus throws Miz to the corner and dares Morrison to tag in. Morrison does, he spins to kick, but goes Matrix to avoid the clothesline! Morrison kips up, but Sheamus comes back to clobber him! Sheamus puts Morrison in the corner, stomps a mudhole in, McIntyre tags in. Sheamus says he wasn’t ready but McIntyre says it’s fine.

McIntyre TOSSES Morrison to a corner, but Morrison blocks the chop to spin and get a headlock. McIntyre powers out, and then BLASTS Morrison with a shoulder! Morrison goes flying, staggers up and gets run over again! Tag to Sheamus, the warriors double whip, McIntyre body shots and Sheamus knee lifts! Morrison tumbles out, Sheamus drags Morrison up on the apron for beats of the Bodhrain! Miz swings but Sheamus catches him for some beats! Sheamus gives Miz all 10, then turns around to pick Morrison up! Fireman’s carry and ROLLING SENTON! Sheamus sees Miz stagger up, scoops him, ROLLING SENTON onto Morrison!

Sheamus taunts Styles to join in on the fun, or is he too scared? Is that why he hides behind Omos? Styles gets off commentary to talk trash back and Sheamus goes out to get up close. Miz runs up, Sheamus DECKS him! Sheamus turns around to see Omos and thinks better of it. Sheamus is on the apron, Morrison dropkicks him onto the announce desk! Styles taunts Sheamus as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Sheamus throws body shots on Morrison. Sheamus whips, Morrison reverses but Sheamus kicks back. Morrison kicks him back, tags Miz in, and they drag Sheamus up for the basement DDT! Cover, TWO! Miz taunts McIntyre, drags Sheamus up and rams knees in. Sheamus endures the chinbar but Miz claws at his face! The ref reprimands and counts, Miz stops at 4 and tags in Morrison. Morrison runs to SHINING WIZARD! Miz runs to BOOT! STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO! Morrison keeps Sheamus down and kicks him around then clubs him to the corner. Morrison keeps Sheamus down with body scissors as Sheamus tries to reach McIntyre!

Sheamus fights and McIntyre reaches while fans clap on their screens. Sheamus fights up, fights out with body shots, but Morrison hits low! Morrison kicks, Sheamus ducks and KNEES Morrison down! Both men are down and McIntyre shouts to Sheamus! Miz shouts at Morrison, too, hot tags to Miz and McIntyre! McIntyre rallies with big clotheslines, and a whip to an OVERHEAD SUPLEX! And another! Morrison springboards but McIntyre catches him, for an OVERHEAD SUPLEX of his own! Miz swings, into McIntyre’s neckbreaker! McIntyre kips up and says it’s time for some fun!

McIntyre aims from the corner but Sheamus wants in! McIntyre goes over but Morrison drags Sheamus down to POST him, and TOSS him over barriers! Styles springboards in to PHENOMENAL FOREARM McIntyre!!

Winners: Drew McIntyre & Sheamus, by disqualification

The plan is coming together! Styles sets McIntyre up for the cash-in! Miz is too angry about the tag match but Morrison says he’ll add on! STARSHIP PAIN!! Miz and Morrison drag McIntyre up, SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! Omos fetches the briefcase for Styles, and he hands it to the ref. The Miz snatches the case from the ref, this is not Styles’ case! But Morrison and Styles both convince Miz to do this! Miz says cash in, but McIntyre throws Morrison out! CLAYMORE to Miz! No cash-in this time, and McIntyre glares at Styles. Styles says he can explain. But instead, Styles bails out and has Omos get him out of there!

Styles says this is Omos is saving McIntyre. Styles says McIntyre won’t survive when these two face off! “You’re the luckiest man alive!” McIntyre says Styles can go ahead and piss him off. Who cares about “Jackass the Beanstalk?” But will Styles continue to conspire with Miz and Morrison to create openings for the MITB briefcase?


My Thoughts:

A really good episode of Raw with a lot of great action. The opening with the new twisted Moment of Bliss was a quick way of escalating things for Orton VS Fiend. Orton teased the moment he RKO’D Stacy Kiebler back in the day by subtly threatening Alexa, and that’s obviously the point of him holding onto Alexa when The Fiend showed up. The Fiend didn’t want Orton hitting Alexa with a powerslam or somehow getting her into an RKO, and it seems to show that is the one sliver of good inside Fiend. I don’t know how this will affect the match they will end up having, but maybe if it turns into a Firefly Fun House, they actually do bring up the Kiebler RKO to make a point of how dangerous Orton can be.

Retribution returning turned out alright, it didn’t really drag anything down because they kept it all pretty concise. Slapjack wins because of a numbers like Ali did before, but I already love that sidewinding back suplex! But then on the flipside, Ali tries to help Reckoning and Dana still manages to win, not sure if that’s how they should’ve done that. The mask fell off pretty easy, too, Mia Yim may have to reassess what she wears for her character. Too bad no one on commentary just quickly said, “Wait, doesn’t she look familiar? I swear I’ve seen her somewhere before.” Maybe there’s an alliance of Ricochet, Dana and someone else against Retribution?

The Symphony of Destruction was pretty fun, until Jeff Hardy almost did himself like Matt Hardy did at AEW All Out. Do the Hardy boys just not think the math through on their high risk spots? Move the steel steps out of the way before doing that insane Swanton off the corner to the table! Hardy winning might finally end this story, but who knows. We got amazing stuff from New Day and Hurt Business tonight. Alexander was on fire, he gets a huge win, and that detail of him praising himself while leaving the others behind could be a sign of ego and dysfunction in the group already. I suppose that’s fine, but hopefully there’s no breaking up already because this group has been strong.

The Triple Threat being given a nickname is dumb, and you could tell they justified it by making jokes about it tonight. The Triple Threat itself was amazing, and it makes sense for Styles to win. Riddle has stuff with Hurt Business now as Lashley went after him and this will clearly set up a title match of Lashley VS Riddle at TLC. I’m both amused and disappointed that Riddle’s new character trait is being that overly talkative kind of annoying. He annoyed Keith into leaving, and obviously he annoyed Styles, and it’s part of why MVP didn’t want to do actual business with Riddle. Lashley VS Riddle is definitely a great match because both men are legit, and is a match where they won’t need any of the TLC related stipulations to make it better. Those guys just need a solid 20 minutes to do whatever they want.

Asuka & Lana VS Nia & Shayna was a good segment, and it made it more obvious that instead of a Raw Women’s Championship match, we’re getting a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match like last year. I have a feeling that with titles on the line, and perhaps a stipulation added on, that could at least make it seem like Lana has a chance of finally having a title, only for the champs to retain. Because while it’s great for Lana to be winning things out of good fortune, I don’t think she and Asuka need to be connected by the belts, even if only for a little bit.

Then, with Styles winning the Triple Threat, I like how he’s immediately agreed to help Miz and Morrison because of the obvious logic that yes, McIntyre is tougher than Miz. Them trying to turn Sheamus on McIntyre is also a smart detail, because it’s what some fans even expected. I honestly hope Sheamus stays a friend of McIntyre’s and he works to keep Miz from cashing in, but chances are if a betrayal is what we’re expecting, that’s what Vince is going to do. I do like Styles acting like “Omos” getting him out of there is them sparing McIntyre. I feel like the cash-in should happen at TLC, after McIntyre and Styles are deep into a TLC match.

My Score: 8.4/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over.

Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.

  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip. Shibata switches the Cobra Twist onto Lee! Lee endures now, marches his way forward, and has the ROPEBREAK! But Shibata KNEES Lee low! Shibata reels Lee in to SAIDO!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands?

The Don Callis Family speaks.

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
