SmackDown Women’s Championship: Sasha Banks VS Bayley!

History waits for no one, so there’s no point in waiting on this one! And speaking of history, Bayley has pointed out Sasha’s history of losing titles as quickly as she wins them. But will The Boss keep history from repeating itself and establish this is finally her time?

Before the match, Kayla Braxton interviews Bayley backstage. Since their start in the WWE, these two have been “intertwined.” Watching the video package just now must’ve stirred up some emotions. Yeah, so many. Like when Bayley hit Sasha with the chair, that brought her joy. And thinking about Sasha forcing Bayley to sign the contract, that makes her angry. But she’s mostly sad. In that amazing video, they forgot the biggest part of Sasha’s career: DING DONG, hello? losing titles when she defends them! Sasha better got her fill these last two weeks, because tonight, Bayley takes back the title. This rivalry ends the same way it started: Sasha crippled in the ring by her own failure!

Bayley makes her entrance, the introductions are made and the belt is raised. What could be the final chapter between these best frenemies starts now!

The two tie up, go around, pulling hair as they go into the corner. Bayley turns things around but Sasha turns them back. The ref counts, the two let up at 4, and then Bayley shoves Sasha. Sasha CHOPS Bayley! Then throws forearms! Sasha knuckle locks and goes up the ropes to arm-drag and cover, ONE! Sasha keeps on Bayley with knuckle locks and brings her up. Bayley steps through to chicken wing but Sasha goes up a corner to get out! Back to knuckle locks, Bayley trips Sasha to a cover, TWO! Sasha keeps Bayley away, then goes up to wheelbarrow and takedown! Bayley scrambles to ropes and Sasha has no choice but to let go. Sasha seethes, “Hello, ding dong! I’m waiting!” We’ll all have to wait as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Sasha dodges Bayley’s baseball slide to come back. Bayley is on the apron so Sasha slides to trip her up! Sasha then spins on the apron to kick Bayley down! Sasha puts Bayley back in, Bayley is in the corner and Sasha hits the swinging meteora! Cover, TWO! Bayley gets to the far side but Sasha follows after. Sasha goes to the apron and runs at Bayley to METEORA into the post! Sasha goes side to side again but Bayley LAUNCHES Sasha with her boots! Sasha crashes and burns on the apron then hits the floor! Bayley grins as she looms over Sasha. She puts Sasha in, covers, TWO! Bayley drives knees into Sasha’s back then chokes her on the ropes! The ref reprimands, Bayley stops and Sasha gets to a corner.

Bayley hits a buckle on the way down, and Sasha runs side to side, BOOT WASH DROPKICK! Sasha slips back to the outside as she hits Bayley, and she comes back to run up the steps, APRON ELBOW DROP! Bayley tumbles down but Sasha puts her right back in!

Sasha gets up top again, aims and FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Bayley survives and Sasha can’t believe it! Fans clap and rally up, Sasha stands Bayley up for the BACKSTABBER, but Bayley rolls through the crossface! BAYLEY2- NO! Sasha drop toeholds out of the suplex to get the CROSSFACE! Bayley goes under the ropes, Sasha lets go to get a leg but Bayley BOOTS Sasha into barriers! Sasha slumps down while Bayley steadies herself. Bayley goes out, drags Sasha up and in, and decides to bring out a kendo stick?! The ref warns her, this is a normal match! But the stick is a distraction for a chair! Bayley wants to use THAT chair, but Sasha BOOTS it! Then BOOTS Bayley! Sasha TOSSES the chair, but Bayley hits a BACKSTABBER! To BAYLEY2BELLY!! Cover, TWO!?!

Will The Boss be better than the Empress of Tomorrow? Wait, CARMELLA attacks with a FABULOUS KICK! And then the MELLA BUSTER! “I’m back, baby!” The now #Untouchable Princess of Staten Island just called her shot! Will she be the one to break Banks?


Kevin Owens finds Jey Uso backstage.

Rough couple of weeks for the two of them. Kevin says Jey getting Roman’s coffee should be Paul Heyman’s job. What was that? Dude, he’s just kidding. Oh so he thinks the family is a joke? No, none of this is a joke. Kevin says he and Jey are teammates at Survivor Series. Kevin doesn’t have the best record at Survivor Series, so he just wanted to check in. But Jey has a lot on his mind, so that’s fine. Maybe switch to decaf. Kevin leaves before things get any more tense. Will Team SmackDown be able to hold it together better than Team Raw?


WWE has HUGE news for Survivor Series!

After reaching 30 YEARS, the Undertaker will be at the PPV where it all started, and he bids his “Final Farewell.” Will it truly be the last ride for the Dead Man?


Backstage interview with Jey Uso!

Kayla says the last month or so has been very emotional. But let’s look at last week in particular. Jey was face to face with Roman after the brutal and humiliating way Roman defeated him at Hell in a Cell. And while it looked like Jey was going to defy the Tribal Chief, blood was thicker than water. Jey bowed the knee, fell in line, and acknowledged Roman as head of the table. Jey not only beat Daniel Bryan to qualify for the SmackDown Survivor Series team, but he beat down Daniel Bryan to make a point. Can he explain his actions? He did what he had to do. It wasn’t personal. Bryan is a friend, but family is forever. Yes, unless you don’t fall in line. Oh haha, Kayla. Everyone wants to be funny, is that it?

Paul Heyman walks in and says hi. But he has a question: did Roman authorize this interview? That’s rhetorical. Roman did not approve. Roman needs to speak to Jey. Kayla says Heyman has a better spot in the family. Still throwing shade, huh? Let’s not keep Roman waiting. Heyman and Jey leave, but that wasn’t a yes or a no to Kayla’s questions.


Rey Mysterio is on the phone.

He’s trying to contact daughter Aalyah but she’s clearly not answering. Dominik hurries over and asks what’s going on. Rey’s match is next and he’s not even dressed?! Because he’s trying to figure out where Aalyah is! Dom hasn’t seen or heard from her, but the match! Rey asks Dom to go get his things for him. Dom hurries off, but CORBIN attacks! The Wolf King is going to take a shortcut to Survivor Series by beating up his opponent! Dom chases Corbin off, but has Corbin already won?


Heyman talks with Jey.

Heyman respects what Jey is doing, but if he wants to do something like that interview, he has to run it by Roman first. He has to ask about doing interviews?! Yes, glad you understand. Then let’s go talk to him! Heyman tells Jey to wait so he can get Roman, and they’ll talk… when Roman’s ready. Heyman goes inside, leaving Jey literally on the outside. Roman shows up rather quickly, and he asks Jey why he’s doing interviews. Trying to tell his story? No it’s part of the job. Well there’s a chain of command here. If you want to do one of those, talk to Roman. If he can’t find Roman, talk to Heyman. What’s going on with Kevin? Forget that fool, he’s making dumb jokes. Jokes, huh? Sounded more like disrespect. If he disrespects Jey, he disrespects Roman. If he disrespects Roman, he disrespects the entire bloodline.

Kevin running his mouth against the family, who are at the top of the mountain, he’s going to let that slide? No, Jey will handle it. Jey goes off somewhere, but what is he going to do? Roman asks if Heyman knew. Heyman stutters that he found out as it happened. Heyman’s supposed to know everything. Heyman is supposed to handle everything so that Roman doesn’t have to. Heyman understands. Then go find Pearce. They’ll handle the KO problem tonight. Heyman heads off, but how is Roman going to “handle” this?


Survivor Series Team SmackDown Qualifier: Rey Mysterio VS Baron Corbin!

The Wolf King is already in the ring, and of course is smug about what he just did backstage. The music hits for the King of Lucha Libre, but he doesn’t come out. At least, not alone. Dom is with him, but will Rey be able to fight in street clothes, beat up and still worried about his daughter?

The bell rings and Rey rushes Corbin, only to get hit with a SPINE BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Rey gets to a corner but Corbin throws body shots! Corbin throws haymakers, too, and then mockingly asks if Rey is okay. Corbin bumps Rey off buckles, digs his knee in, but lets off at the ref’s count. Rey gets to the apron and Dom is worried, but Corbin mockingly applauds. Corbin goes out, ROCKS Rey with a right, then bumps him off the apron. The ref starts a ring count but Corbin puts Rey in. Rey gets to a corner, elbows back and throws body shots, but Corbin knees hard and low! Corbin stands on Rey’s head and chest! Corbin lets off while fans give thumbs down. Corbin throws Rey out then lets the ring count climb.

Dom checks on Rey but Corbin comes out to break the count. Corbin stalks behind Rey and throws more big forearms. Corbin runs in but Rey moves, Corbin only gets steel steps! Rey refreshes the count and goes out after Corbin with kicks! Rey puts Corbin against the apron to throw hands then he puts Corbin in. Rey gets in, throws forearms, and runs, into Corbin’s elbow! Corbin looms over Rey and drags him up. Corbin choke grips and lifts, but Rey sunset flips out of the slam to cover, TWO! Tilt-o-whirl headscissors throws Corbin out! But Seth Rollins is here! The Savior of SmackDown smirks, but then says he means no harm. Will that be true while SmackDown goes to break?

SmackDown returns and Corbin has Rey against the post. The ref counts, Corbin lets off, and Rey now POSTS Corbin! Both men are down and the ring count climbs. Rollins mockingly rallies for Rey as Rey puts Corbin in. Rey springboards and splashes! But he can’t cover, his own body is too sore! Corbin and Rey slowly rise and Corbin shoves Rey into a corner! Corbin runs in but Rey elbows back! Rey boots back, Corbin wobbles but runs into more boots! Rey springboards to QUEBRADA, but into Corbin’s arms! Corbin hits a Canadian rack BACKBREAKER! Rollins cheers Corbin on as he covers, TWO! Rey survives and crawls to the apron. Corbin drags Rey around as Dom glares at Rollins. Corbin CLUBS Rey down and soaks up the heat from fans.

Corbin drags Rey up, puts him against ropes and throws forearm after forearm into the back! The ref counts, Corbin lets off and Rollins cheers. Corbin drags Rey around, hoists him up top and throws haymakers. Corbin climbs up but Rey fights back! Rey headbutts Corbin until he staggers down, then Rey adjusts to leap! But Corbin catches him this time, for a BACKBREAKER! And another! Corbin carries Rey around for a SLAM! Cover, TWO! Corbin grows frustrated, as does Rollins, but Corbin digs his knee into Rey for his chinlock clutch. Rey gets the ropebreak and Corbin lets off. Rey tumbles out of the ring but Corbin goes out to fetch him. Corbin brings Rey up to RAM into the apron!

The ring count climbs to 5 before Corbin puts Rey in. Corbin rains down rights over and over, then stares down Dom. Dom glances between Corbin and Rollins, who shakes his head. Corbin hauls Rey up to CLUB him down, then runs to DECK him with a right! Corbin taunts Rey, runs again and DECKS Rey with another right! Corbin grins as he drags Rey up, runs a third time, but Rey dodges and runs, but into a bearhug! Rey endures, fights and BITES! Corbin rams Rey into the buckles, then runs corner to corner. Rey ducks down to dodge, then enziguris from the apron! Rey climbs up and leaps, SEATED SENTON! And then he speeds up to dropkick the legs out and basement dropkick Corbin down! Rollins is worried as Rey SPRINGBOARD SENTONS! Cover, TWO!

Rey and Corbin slowly rise as fans rally. Rollins gets frustrated on Corbin’s behalf but Dom coaches Rey on. Corbin shoves Rey away, but Rey slips through End of Days to drop toehold! Corbin is on the ropes, Rey dials it up, but Corbin bails out! And then Corbin sucker punches Dom! Rey dropkicks Corbin then PLANCHAS! Direct hit and everyone is down! Rollins watches closely while Dom sits up. Rey puts Corbin in the ring but he’s still worried about his son. Dom says he’s fine so Rey goes in. Corbin headbutts low, reels Rey in, and lifts, but Rey fights out to huricanrana! 6 1 9!! Rollins attacks Dom! Rey goes out to hit Rollins and throw him into barriers! Fans give thumbs down as Buddy Murphy and Aalyah finally appear!

Rey says Murphy needs to leave but Aalyah says he’s here to help now! The ring count climbs, Rey has to hurry back in, but he’s still shouting at Murphy. Corbin gets Rey for END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!!

Winner: King Corbin, by pinfall (joins Team SmackDown)

Rey could not keep his focus, and now he’s out of Survivor Series! But will the Wolf King of the Ring be King of Team SmackDown?



Jey will “handle” the KO problem himself as he and Kevin will have a match tonight! Will this only sabotage SmackDown’s chances at Survivor Series?


Survivor Series Women’s Team SmackDown Qualifier Triple Threat: Natalya VS Ruby Riott VS Zelina Vega!

The Queen of Harts, the Best of All Time #BOAT, didn’t qualify in the Triple Threat against Billie Kay and Bianca Belair, but there’s still time. Will the winningest woman in WWE history be able to qualify against the Squad leader and La Muneca?

The bell rings and Natty shoves Zelina away to get Ruby in a facelock. Zelina comes back to roll Natty but Ruby pushes that part. Zelina gets around Ruby but Ruby switches, only for Natty to get her in an O’Conner roll. Zelina boots Natty down, Ruby and Zelina brawl and Zelina clubs Ruby down. Zelina ax kicks, runs, but Natty trips her and throws her out! Natty gets in but Ruby cradle counters, ONE! Natty gets Ruby for a scoop and slam! Natty gets the legs, hooks them up and grabs the arms. Natty hoists Ruby up into the Romero Special surfobarods! But Zelina slides in to cover Natty, TWO as Natty lets Ruby go at the same time.

Natty shoves Zelina but Zelina elbows back and huricanranas around and around and around and around! Zelina is dizzy now, and she runs into Ruby’s STO! Ruby goes up top while Natty and Zelina are down! Natty gets to Ruby but Ruby kicks her away! Ruby adjusts, STAGE DIVE SENTON, but Zelina moves! Natty Sharpshooters but Zelina BULLDOGS! Zelina hits METEORA! She snapmares Ruby and runs to SPIKE-RANA! But Ruby rolls out! Natty rolls Zelina up, TWO! DISCUS- NO! Zelina gets around, crucifix to sunset flip, TWO! Natty has the legs, another Sharpshooter! Zelina endures, crawls, reaches, but has to keep going because of no ropebreak disqualifications! But Ruby clamps on to get the arms! Natty lets go and NOW Zelina taps?! Ruby wins!!

Winner: Ruby Riott, by submission (joins Team SmackDown)

Natty can’t believe it! She’s 0-2 in these Triple Threats! Ruby benefits from the #BOAT making a mistake, will Ruby and Bianca Belair make for a strong combination?


Big E is backstage, playing Trivial Pursuit?

The answer is, the Duchess of Cornwall! Pay up! Big bank takes little bank! The Street Profits come by clapping, “Big! E Rocks!” Big E appreciates that. Wanna kick it in the Champions’ Lounge? They got the lease off Cesaro and Shinsuke so they’ll remodel. Big E will take them up on it. Let’s talk Survivor Series! Oh okay, this is about the scoop on the New Day, huh? Just a little scoop. Well if you really wanna know… “If y’all lay down in the ring, Kofi and Woods won’t beat you up too bad.” Ouch. But they laugh it off together. That’s funny, brother. Big E heads out, comes back for more laughs, then they do some Three Stooges.

Billie Kay comes by and joins in the laughter, but then she cuts that short to show “Mr. Profits” her headshot and resume, if they’re looking for some real inside info on the Raw brand. After all, she was just there. Billie, they were, too! Oh right. Then that’s a no on the help? The Profits head out, will Billie find somewhere to belong on the Blue Brand?


Survivor Series Team SmackDown Qualifier: Seth Rollins VS Otis!

The Savior had a hand in screwing over Rey, but will he be directly responsible for keeping The Dozer off the team? Or will the Blue Collar Solid working man turn his luck around to get back on top?

SmackDown returns and Rollins makes his entrance. The Mysterios are watching closely backstage, hoping he faces the consequences of his actions. The bell rings and Otis circles with Rollins. They tie up Rollins waistlocks and clubs Otis over and over. Rollins laughs and whips but Otis blocks! Otis is too big and strong and he whips Rollins HARD into the corner! Then he MAT SLAMS Rollins, then SLAMS him again! Rollins bails out and composes himself after getting thrown around. But Buddy Murphy walks out to confront Rollins. The Mysterios are still watching as Rollins gets back in the ring. Rollins kicks but Otis blocks and throws him down! Otis bumps Rollins off buckles hard, then brings him up to whip. Rollins kicks back then runs, but Otis dumps him out! And at Murphy’s feet!

Rollins scrambles up and away from Murphy but Murphy just stares him down. Otis comes out to TACKLE Rollins! Otis puts Rollins in, check son Murphy but Murphy stays put. Otis goes in, Rollins hits a SLING BLADE! Cover, TWO! Rollins is a bit shocked but Otis is in a corner. Rollins runs in and RAMS his shoulder in! But Otis isn’t bothered! Otis jiggles and shimmies as Rollins kicks! Rollins keeps kicking but Otis keeps powering up! Otis is fired up, Rollins CHOPS, but the jiggling just continues! And the thrusting starts! Otis is feeling it as he counter HEADBUTS, then rallies with big body blocks! Rollins swings, runs but into a FLAPJACK! Otis brings Rollins up tp out him in a corner, scoop and spin for the SLAM!

Rollins is in the corner again but he boots back! Rollins goes up, leaps, but into Otis’ arms! Otis FALL AWAY SLAMS Rollins to the far side! Otis is all fired up and he runs to corner splash! Rollins is down, Otis has a target! Otis starts things up but Murphy gets on the apron? Is Murphy here to help Rollins? He does look Rollins’ way, but then reconsiders. Otis still swipes at Murphy but Rollins SUPERKICKS Otis down! And hits a CURB STOMP! Cover, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall (joins Team SmackDown)

The Mysterios are confused! Is Murphy still Rollins’ disciple? Or is Murphy playing a mind game even more complex than Rollins understands?


SmackDown returns as Rollins confronts Murphy backstage!

Rollins knows what he saw tonight. At least, he thinks he knows. Tell him he saw what he thinks he saw. Tell him! Murphy points to Rollins and says “messiah,” then to himself and says “disciple.” Yes! Say it again! Rollins is messiah, Murphy is disciple. Rollins knew Murphy would understand! He knew Murphy would see the light, and that the Mysterio family would never truly accept him. Welcome home, Murphy. There’s work to be done! But now Aalyah confronts him! Murphy says it isn’t what it looks like but she’s still upset! Murphy says she needs to trust him. This is for the greater good. Is Murphy tricking Rollins? Or is he just fooling himself?


Michael Cole interviews Lars Sullivan.

Cole knows Lars sat down for an interview with Corey Graves last week, speaking on the issues as a child and how he was called “a freak” by bullies. Lars sits with his shirt off as he says he hates bullies. “I’ve been bullied my entire life.” For how he looks, for how he talks, for how he dresses. “Those bullies, they would push me down. They would kick me. They would steal my lunch. They would mock me and they would call me ‘freak.'” The other kids would just stand there and watch, and laugh! Lars seethes as he says at 13 years old, he started lifting weights and learned how to take care of himself. He gained 50 pounds of muscle in about 18 months. The bullying stopped. In fact, Lars became a bully. Lars bullied those bullies, “and that was so much fun, man.”

Lars bullied the bystanders who watched and laughed! He got back at them because they deserved it. “I learned that I could bully whoever I wanted.” He could make them do whatever he want, or eat whatever he wanted. “Dirt. Glass. Bugs.” Lars could do whatever Lars wanted. Like this! He ROARS at Cole, and then laughs to himself. “Now that’s intimidation! That’s bullying! And I love it.” What else will Lars do? And who will he do it to?


Jey Uso VS Kevin Owens!

Making fun of the family will not be allowed by the Tribal Chief. In fact, it seems if it isn’t Roman’s will, it will not happen. Will Jey carry out Roman’s will and humble Kevin here tonight?

SmackDown returns as Kayla interviews Kevin backstage. He’s about to face his Survivor Series teammate. Does he feel things got out of hand? Yes, of course they did! When Kevin came into work today, he didn’t expect to fight his Survivor Series partner! But the thing is, Kevin has a tendency to speak his mind. It’s like a bad habit. But if Jey or Roman or Roman’s little b- Special counsel, has a problem with that, so be it. Kevin says what else is out of hand is what Jey did- well, what Roman told Jey to do to Daniel Bryan last week.

But hey, Kevin’s done questionable things for his family, too. The difference is, Kevin chose to do those things. He wasn’t made to do them. He is his own man. Which is more than he can say for Jey right now. So know this, Jey. The beating you’ve got coming? It is 100% from Kevin. Will Kevin be able to #JustKeepFighting after his fight with Jey?

The bell rings, Kevin and Jey circle. They tie up, Kevin headlocks and grinds Jey down. Jey fights up, powers out but Kevin runs him over! Jey gets to ropes but Kevin stays back. Roman is watching backstage as Jey gets back up. Jey and Kevin tie up again, Kevin waistlocks but Jey pries free to a wristlock. Kevin ROCKS Jey with a right then headlocks again. Kevin grinds Jey down but Jey fights up. Jey throws body shots but Kevin scoops and slams him, then drops a back senton! Cover, TWO! Kevin keeps on Jey but Jey throws Kevin out. Kevin comes back but Jey runs, into a forearm! Kevin drags Jey up but Jey throws body shots! Jey hotshots Kevin down! Roman gives an order and Heyman heads out?

Jey runs and DIVES but Kevin catches him to throw him into the barriers! Kevin refreshes the count to then FROG SPLASH to the floor! Double-edged but worth it in Kevin’s mind! The Prizefighter is in control as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns as Jey stomps a mudhole into Kevin! Jey lets off at the ref’s count but he fires himself up. Jey goes after Kevin but Kevin throws hands. Jey ROCKS Kevin with a right then stalks him at ropes. Jey whips Kevin, Kevin kicks back but Jey still fireman’s carries. Kevin slips off for a HEADSHOT neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Kevin goes up top but has to shake out the cobwebs. And now Heyman appears? This was Roman’s order, and Kevin is distracted. Jey SUPERKICKS Kevin down to the ground! Jey builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Kevin hits barriers! Jey gets up and brings Kevin up to bump him off steel steps! Kevin checks his jaw but his teeth are still there. Kevin and Jey get in, Jey drags Kevin around to stomp him down! Kevin gets up, Jey SUPERKICKS him again!

Jey tells Heyman, “This is how we do, Paul!” Jey rains down rights on Kevin, then brings him up into a chinlock. Jey clamps down tight but Kevin endures. Kevin fights up as fans clap. Kevin arm-drags free, but Jey superkicks again, only for Kevin to block and SUPERKICK back! Both men are down and Heyman grows worried. Fans rally as Kevin goes to a corner. Jey slowly rises, runs at Kevin but misses! Kevin SUPERKICKS again! And then CANNONBALLS! Kevin has Jey in the drop zone and he climbs up, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Jey survives and Heyman is surprised! Kevin drags Jey up and whips him to ropes, but Jey slips off the pop-up to SUPERKICK back! And then back suplex NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!

Kevin and Jey stir and Heyman is flustered. Jey gets to a corner, and goes up top as Kevin is in a drop zone. Kevin gets up to intercept with haymakers! Jey punches Kevin back and then down, but Kevin gets under the leap! Pop-up POWERBOMB! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Kevin stomps Jey, tells Heyman to shut up, but now ROMAN comes out! The ref and Kevin are both distracted, Jey LOW BLOW HEADBUTTS Kevin down!! SUPERKICK!! Jey goes to the corner, climbs up top, USO SPLASH! Cover, Jey wins!

Winner: Jey Uso, by pinfall

The family basically won together! Jey high-fives Heyman, then meets Roman at the stage. Roman is proud of Jey that he is starting to see things his way. Will the Anoa’i Dynasty soon control all of SmackDown?

My Thoughts:

This was a fairly good SmackDown, but there sure was a lot of Mysterio family drama this week. Both Men’s Survivor Series Team matches had to do with that story, with some very interesting twists and turns. I almost thought Corbin attacking Rey outta nowhere meant Dominik was going to sub in and somehow win his way to Survivor Series. In a way, I’m glad Rey still had the match, as he’s been needing to get back in the ring one way or another. But with Rollins and ultimately Murphy distracting him, obviously Rey was going to lose. At the same time, it’d be way too easy to copy the dysfunction angle from Raw if Rey and Rollins were both on the team. And while Rollins beats Otis thanks to Murphy, I like that it isn’t just Murphy blindly going back to Rollins. Murphy wants Aalyah to trust this is part of a plan, but honestly, it’d just be better if Murphy outright beat the hell out of Rollins. The Mysterio men just need to understand people can change and Murphy can be their ally rather than another enemy.

Natty being in another Triple Threat is fine, because there are various reasons to explain it. For one, there are only so many women on either Raw or SmackDown so you gotta use them all. And Natty is the winningest woman in WWE, she really is a great wrestler, and this is her giving back and putting the newer stars over. It was very clever to copy last week’s spot of double submissions to then let it be Ruby’s win. I have a feeling Natty ends up on the team eventually, but the dysfunction there is Natty is on a team with women who have beaten her to get on the team. Opening tonight with Bayley VS Sasha was a great move, it was a great match though not exactly top 5 for even just their rivalry. Naturally Sasha retains to finally get that “curse” off her back, and then to set up a fresh match-up as Carmella makes a surprise return! Sasha VS Carmella will surely take us through to Royal Rumble.

Lars Sullivan’s second interview definitely built upon the first, and it easily framed the motivations behind Lars’ behavior. Not sure who his first feud will be against with the singles titles all under Heel control, but maybe he gets on Team SmackDown and we get all kinds of hoss match-ups with Keith Lee, Braun Strowman and even Sheamus. Big E should also be on Team SmackDown, he and Sheamus can bring back some of that recent rivalry. Big E’s segment with The Street Profits was really fun, and I feel like while things are respectful right now, the Raw VS SmackDown Tag Champions match could get real chippy and rough real quick. I feel like if Big E isn’t destined for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania, he and Sami Zayn need to start on an Intercontinental Championship program before the Royal Rumble.

The big story of Jey Uso was really strong tonight. Jey is understandably on edge, so it works that he’d take that out on Kevin and his general wry wit. There is also understandable tension as Jey doesn’t want to go to Roman for permission on everything like Roman’s his dad or something. But Jey still seems to agree with the general mission, and there are any number of ways this can go. Jimmy might even return to confront Jey on all of this, and it’s up to Jimmy to either save Jey or end up just like him. Again, this is perhaps some of the best pure story stuff you can find anywhere right now, it’s so good.

My Score: 8.2/10

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta VS Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker & The Dark Order w/ Jake Hager!

OrangeHausen, HookHausen, OrangeHook, all of the above, and #JustTrent take on Daddy Magic, Cool Hang Ange, Alex Reynolds & Evil Uno in a big, super team-up type deal! But will the Very Nice, Very Evil Best Friends be victorious together? Or will the rogues gallery standing against them earn themselves quite a lot of golden opportunities all at once?

But wait, as Big Hurt Hager gets the VNVEBFs to turn their backs, the rogues attack! Fans boo, the bell rings, and all but Danhausen is tossed out of the ring as he tosses Reynolds instead. Uno CLUBS Danhausen, Cassidy is sent into railing, and Uno puts Danhausen in a corner. Uno CHOPS him, soaks up the heat, and then storms up. Danhausen kicks low, throws hands, but Uno kicks back. Uno whips corner to corner, runs in but into a BOOT! Danhausen runs up to RANA! Uno tumbles, fans fire up and Danhausen catches Reynolds as he runs in, wrench and NORTHERN LIGHTS! Fans fire up as Danhausen kicks low and tags Hook.

HookHausen double whip Uno, Uno holds ropes and Menard tags in. Menard, Parker and Reynolds all get in, but then so do Trent and Cassidy! The eight men are stare down, and the brawl is back on! The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip! But the Best Friends all reverse that, X-JAS and Dark Order crash into each other! And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

Fans fire up because now we get the GROUP HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Hook then goes after Parker with body shots, but Menard storms up. Menard hits low, scoops Hook, BACKBREAKER and Parker KNEES Hook down! But Trent JUMP KNEES Parker down! Menard kicks low and POWERBOMBS Trent! Cassidy dodges Menard to tilt-o-whirl and DDT! Uno CHOPS Cassidy down! Danhausen baits Uno in for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Reynolds runs in, spins Danhausen and ROLLING ELBOWS!

Hook is back up, T-BONE for Reynolds! T-BONE for Parker! Uno is up, he kicks low and whips. Hook reverses that to clinch and T-BONE! Extra large serving for Uno there! But wait, here comes Wheeler Yuta! The ROH Pure Champion wants to taunt Hook like he has been for weeks now, and then Menard CLOBBERS Hook in the distraction! Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Menard stomps Hook, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a right. Menard pushes Hook around, soaks up the heat, but turns around into a CHOP! Menard trips Hook, drags him back, and tags Parker in. Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent still has Reynolds but Reynolds fights the nelson. Uno runs in but Trent ducks, the BOOT hits Reynolds! Trent HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEXES Uno away! Trent runs in at Reynolds but into a BOOT! Reynolds goes up but Trent YANKS him down for a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Trent!

Trent tags Cassidy, and Cassidy storms up to “unleash.” But then he really does fire off BOOT after BOOT on Dark Order! Yuta sighs as this is typical Cassidy. Cassidy dodges the Dark Order’s double lariat to DOUBLE SHOTGUN! Cassidy kips up and the fans fire up! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Uno stops the DDT to suplex! Only to get STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps moving but Uno BOOTS him! Uno hooks Cassidy up, for SOMETHING EVIL! Cover, Trent KNEES it apart! Fans fire up, Reynolds BOOTS Trent! Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard! Menard says do NOT do what he thinks he’s gonna do! But then Danhausen CURSES him! And yes, the PURPLE HAT! Hager is pissed, Parker tries to calm him down, but then Hager runs in! Danhausen dodges, Trent & Cassidy dump Hager out! Menard grabs Danhausen, Parker runs in to get the hat back! But Hook gets Parker in the REDRUM!! Menard lets Danhausen go, but Danhausen rolls him up! BEST FRIENDS WIN!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta, by pinfall

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?


Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?


Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles.

Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Firstly, the Continental Classic continues, and the Gold League’s third round has been set: Jon Moxley VS Rush; Jay White VS Jay Lethal; and Swerve Strickland VS Mark Briscoe! Will El Toro Blanco be the one to serve The Maniac that first L in the tournament? Will Lethal and Briscoe finally get on the board?

And after being the one to score the pinfall in tonight’s Six Woman Tag, Skye Blue gets her shot at “Timeless” Toni Storm and the AEW Women’s World Championship! Will Skye finally make it through the Storm to grab the gold on the other side?


Six Man Tag: Penta El Zero Miedo, El Hijo Del Vikingo & Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Brian Cage & The Workhorsemen w/ Prince Nana!

While the AEW World Trios Champions, Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed, are down and out, trios are forming and fighting their way up. Alex Abrahantes’ league of luchadores want their shot, but will they make it through a Rampage? Or will The Mogul Embassy learn that having #CeroMiedo is priceless?

The trios sort out, and Cage starts against Komander. Cage kicks Komander low right at the bell, then whips him to ropes.

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10

Mitchell’s WWE SmackDown Results & Report! (12/1/23)

SmackDown hears voices!



The Viper is here for The Bloodline!

He returned at WarGames, he returned to Monday Night Raw, and now, The Apex Predator, Randy Orton, returns to Friday Night SmackDown! Will he be able to strike at The Bloodline tonight?


  • Pete Dunne VS Bobby Lashley w/ The Street Profits; Lashley wins.
  • Santos Escobar VS Joaquin Wilde; Santos wins.
  • Kevin Owens VS Grayson Waller w/ Austin Theory; Kevin wins.
  • Bianca Belair w/ Charlotte Flair & Shotzi Blackheart VS Kairi Sane w/ DMG CTRL; Bianca wins.


Bianca Belair is here!

Brooklyn cheers The EST as she skips to the ring, her team victorious against Damage Control in WarGames! After a recap package, fans chant for Bianca and she gets the mic to say, “Man, it is so cool to be in one of the best boroughs in one of the greatEST cities in the world, Brooklyn!” The fans cheer that! Bianca says DMG CTRL really tried to take them out, but her team did what needed to be done. So shout out to Becky Lynch for coming through, showing up and showing out. Shout out to Shotzi for her guts and passion. And shoutout to Charlotte Flair for being a bigger person and making that call to Becky.

“Now while it feels great to be standing in this ring and celebrating that W from WarGames, my war with DMG CTRL, it ain’t over~! Cuz Iyo Sky, I’m still coming for you, cuz I want my title back!” Fans also cheer that. But speaking of Iyo, here she comes! The Evil Genius leads DMG CTRL out, though where’s Bayley? That aside, Dakota Kai is the one to tell Bianca, “It’s really great how uh, you can get all of these people to cheer for you.” The fans boo her but Dakota tells them to shut up! Dakota says just earlier, Iyo was saying how gross it is here in Brooklyn! It smells! Who would want to live here?!

DMG CTRL slide into the ring, and Dakota says Iyo was also saying that Bianca is in way over her head, dude. Iyo already beat Bianca twice. So… if Bianca wants to get yet another shot, she’ll have to go through all of DMG CTRL. Well that ain’t nothing new. So who wants it first, huh? But wait! Here come Charlotte & Shotzi to back Bianca up! Fans cheer as Charlotte says “Ladies~…! Bianca isn’t the only one coming for you. And I’d love to go through all of DMG CTRL.” Shotzi says it seems to her that there’s enough DMG CTRL to go around. They rush in, and the brawl is on! Fans fire up but Iyo TOSSES Bianca and helps Asuka against Charlotte!

Shotzi and Kairi brawl in a corner, Bianca returns, Charlotte BOOTS Asuka way while Bianca RAMS Iyo into a corner! Bianca stomps Iyo down, Charlotte helps Shotzi with Kairi, and Charlotte sets Kairi up for Shotzi’s BOOT! Iyo ends up isolated, and Bianca hits a SPINEBUSTER! Iyo scrambles out, DMG CTRL regroups, are their days on top numbered?


DMG CTRL regroups backstage.

And Bayley is confused as to what’s going on. Iyo angrily asks where Bayley was but Bayley says no one told her they were going out there! Maybe if she knew, things would’ve been different! The joshi talk in Japanese, Dakota cools it off. What matters is that Kairi is facing Bianca tonight. No one knows Bianca better than Bayley so Kairi would appreciate the help. Kairi says yes, they’re “tomodachi <friends>,” that’d be appreciated. Bayley says okay, but are they really Bayley’s friends?


Pete Dunne VS Bobby Lashley w/ The Street Profits!

With Sheamus recovering from injury and Ridge Holland just ditching him last week, The Bruiserweight is all alone against The All Mighty! Will Dunne stand a chance against the overwhelming strength of Bobby Lashley?

SmackDown returns and Lashley makes his entrance, Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins by his side. But before the bell, Lashley gets a mic to say “Hey, listen, kid. When I told you to make a name for yourself…” The fans chant “BOBBY! BOBBY!” and Lashley says that’s a name. Does Dunne know what Lashley can do to him? Lashley will break Dunne into pieces!

The Bruiserweight put up a fight, but Lashley is still Lashley. Will The All Mighty soon head for a title as we head for the New Year?


Paul Heyman walks into Nick Aldis’ office.

The Wise Man seems rather indignant looking at the SmackDown General Manager. Heyman then dusts off the New York Jets NFL Legacy belt before speaking. “Did you invite Randy Orton to SmackDown tonight?” Aldis says yes, he did. And Aldis intends to sign Randy to a SmackDown exclusive superstar contract tonight. Heyman looks around and asks if the Tribal Chief knows about this. Aldis says Heyman has forgotten that there are countless memos: All communication to Roman Reigns must go through Paul Heyman. So consider this a communication to Roman: Aldis WILL sign Randy to SmackDown.

And if Aldis has to offer up the entire Bloodline as leverage, so be it. So the question to Heyman is… “What’re you gonna do about it?” Heyman says, “Anything it takes.” Heyman gets on his phone to call Roman Reigns. But is there nothing that can stop The Viper from finally being within striking distance of The Tribal Chief?


Backstage interview with Pete Dunne.

Kayla Braxton says he lost to Lashley, but she wants to talk about last week. Why did Ridge walk out on him? Dunne says he doesn’t know. And he doesn’t care. Because right now isn’t about the Brutes, it’s about Dunne! He is going to focus on himself. He is here to fight, and he will fight anyone! But in walk Pretty Deadly. They say this is so tough. But don’t be sad, use this as a learning opportunity. Sometimes, being abandoned can help you find your own path. Even if that path, like Dunne’s career, hits a dead end. Dunne HITS them! Dunne fires off but that’s 2v1 and Pretty Deadly turns it around! They TOSS Dunne into a road case!

How’s that, Butch?! HUH!? You’re alone! ALONE! And always will be! Elton Prince & Kit Wilson have numbers on their side, but will Dunne still get revenge?


Backstage interview with Santos Escobar.

Cathy Kelley says given his recent history with the LWO, what can we expect in his match with Joaquin Wilde here? Santos says he’s only trying to finish what Rey started. Rey turned his back on the LWO when he chose Carlito over Santos. And now Santos’ own brothers in arms are blinded by their hero, not seeing that Rey will do the same to them. Cruz is still recovering from the last time he tried standing up to Santos. And if Wilde can’t see the truth, Santos will put him on the shelf, too. The Emperor of Lucha is becoming a tyrant, but will he be unstoppable in destroying what he helped create?

Santos Escobar VS Joaquin Wilde!

SmackDown returns and Wilde makes his entrance. The bell rings and Wilde DROPKICKS Santos! And DROPKICKS again! Then kips up and ROCKS Santos with haymakers! Fans fire up, Wilde whips and ELBOWS Santos down! Then drops an elbow! Santos bails out but Wilde PLANCHAS out onto him! Fans fire up again and Wilde CLUBS Santos.

The Boy Wonder may have lost at Survivor Series but he won’t let Santos just do what he wants! Santos bails out, he did what he wanted. Wait, he slithers back in! But Dragon is ready and fires haymakers on him! Dragon whips, Santos reverses but Dragon RANAS! Santos ends up in a corner, Dragon JUMP KICKS, leg sweeps, and SWINGING DROPKICK! Combinacion Dragon hits, and fans fire up! Dragon aims again, BULL’S HORNS!! Santos flounders away, is his fight with Dragon far from over?


Nick Aldis greets Logan Paul backstage.

The Maverick is her with his United States Championship, ready to make his first appearance on SmackDown. What will the ImPAULsive Influencer have to say about being United States Champion? We find out, after the break.


Adam Pearce visits Nick Aldis in his office.

And the Raw GM asks the SmackDown GM to tell him the rumor isn’t true. Is Aldis trying to get a Raw Legend out from under Pearce’s nose? Aldis tells Pearce that Randy is a free agent now. But yes, Aldis does intend to sign Orton right here tonight in that ring. Is that so? Yeah, Pearce had his chance on Monday. Don’t worry about what happened on Monday. If Aldis is going to the ring with a contract, Pearce will join him. Pearce also has a contract folder! Nice office, by the way. Pearce heads out, who wins the signature of the Legend Killer?


Logan Paul heads to the ring!

Brooklyn is a little torn on seeing the Maverick in person, though probably because he needed brass knuckles to load his already titanium reinforced hand to beat Rey Mysterio. But Logan gets the mic to say, “To every friend who stabbed me in the back, to every hater who preyed on my downfall, I’ve got a question: WHERE ARE YOU NOW?!” He doesn’t understand. Don’t they get it by n ow? The more they hope he fails, the harder he works. And the harder he works, the more he wins. And the more he wins, the more he gets to stand up here and bark back!

And to all the jealous superstars backstage mad at him because they’ve been doing this their whole life while he’s the fastest rising superstar in history, you want the US Championship? Of course you do! It has been on his junk, just like y’all have since he got here! But a champ is only as good as his challengers, and since Rey is hurt, Logan can’t give him the rematch he was so excited for. So good news! Logan spoke with Aldis, and they have created a tournament to determine his next challenger. It starts next week, featuring eight superstars!

Santos Escobar, Dragon Lee, Karrion Kross, an NXT superstar to still be determined, Bobby Lashley, Grayson Waller, Austin Theory, and of course Kevin Owens. And Logan guarantees whoever wins this will have a nightmare trying to take this title from him. But wait, speaking of! Here comes Kevin Owens! Brooklyn fires up for The Prizefighter as he heads right for the ring. Kevin gets himself a mic and he says if Logan wants to talk about a nightmare, this, Logan Paul in the ring, is a nightmare. The first time Kevin ever saw Logan was 10 years ago on that app, Vine. And back then, it only took Kevin those six seconds to realize Logan is an unbearable jackass.

Fans cheer in agreement, and Kevin says if we’re talking about “junk,” the only junk is that crap drink Logan peddles. And now, guess what? Kevin is here to tell us that if he’s in the tournament, the nightmare will end. Logan’s days as champion will be numbered. That’s funny. Kevin calls himself a prizefighter, but Logan’s been in the ring with the greatest boxers in the world. If these two were to fight, six seconds is five more than Logan needs to KO KO. Kevin will never take this away from Logan: he’s very clever. But the thing is, that’s another world. This ring, the WWE Universe, it’s Kevin’s world, understand?

Logan says we’ll see about that. But then here comes Grayson Waller & Austin Theory! Logan smiles because it’s like looking in a mirror as these two walk down here. And Waller tells Logan he is better than this. He doesn’t need to talk with Kevin, Kevin is a troll looking for attention. He isn’t a forward thinking disruptor like the three of them. They have a lot in common, really. A-Town Down Under get in the ring, and Kevin says he loves punching people in the face. Look who he is in the ring with: Logan Paul is a man who knocks people out. So after Logan is done knocking Kevin out, maybe Kevin’s days of punching people- KEVIN DECKS THEORY!

Fans fire up as Theory tumbles out, and Waller goes to check on his buddy. Logan and Kevin drop their mics, stare down, and fans fire up as Kevin dares Logan to make the first move. Logan says worry about Waller first. Will Kevin give us a preview of the US Championship Contender’s Tournament? We find out after the break!


Kevin Owens VS Grayson Waller w/ Austin Theory!

SmackDown returns and Logan is sticking around to be on commentary for this one. Logan says he is like a proud father watching his sons on the playground. The bell rings, Waller bails out and regroups with Theory. Kevin goes out to ROCK Waller! And CHOP him! And then SMACK Waller off the desk! The ring count climbs, Kevin throws hands and he puts Waller in the ring. The ref makes sure Theory stays back, but then Waller stomps away on Kevin. Waller talks trash, UPPERCUTS Kevin, but Kevin CHOPS back! Waller kicks low, CLUBS Kevin on the neck, then cravats him into the ropes! The ref counts, Waller lets off.

Waller whips, Kevin reverses and CLOBBERS Waller! Then SENTONS! Fans rally, Kevin runs in at the corner and he clotheslines! Kevin then goes corner to corner, but Waller gets up to BOOT him! Waller LEG LARIATS! Waller rains down fists, then talks trash. Logan isn’t sure how well Kevin is built for this. Waller throws hands again, Logan denies knowing anything about brass knuckles, and Waller goes along the ropes. BALLER ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Kevin SLAPS Waller! And SLAPS him again! Waller BOOTS Kevin down! Waller snarls, drags Kevin up, but Kevin fights the suplex! The fans rally, Kevin suplexes Waller up and over!

Kevin glares at Logan, then CHOPS Waller! And CHOPS again! Kevin fakes the chop to then poke Waller in the eye! Kevin goes corner to corner, but then Waller bails out! No cannonball here and fans boo. Kevin goes out after Waller but Waller ROCKS him first! And SMACKS Kevin off the desk! Logan holds onto his Prime to make sure it doesn’t spill. Waller gets in the ring, builds speed and slides, but Kevin avoids the lariat to DECK Waller! Kevin gets on the apron, to FROG SPLASH to the floor! Fans fire up with Kevin while the ring count climbs. Kevin goes out after Waller again, but Waller RAMS him into steel steps!

Waller gets in to distract the ref, Theory STOMPS Kevin’s hand on the steps! Theory signals that to Waller and Waller stomps that arm! Waller slides out to then SLAM the arm into the post! Fans boo as A-Town Down Under high-five, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Kevin hits a FROG SPLASH in the ring! Fans fire up again while both men are down. Kevin shakes the bad hand out while Waller goes to the corner. Kevin storms up but Waller hits the bad hand! Then ARMBAR DDT! Waller hammerlocks that arm, then hits a ROLLING SNAP on the arm! Waller traps that arm in a double wristlock but Kevin endures. The fans rally, Kevin fights up, and he throws body shots with the good hand. Fans cheer, Kevin throws Waller out, but Waller grabs at Kevin’s bad hand. HOTSHOT on that arm! SOMERSAULT STUN- NO, atomic drop first! And then a DDT!

Fans fire up as Kevin evens things out. Kevin goes to ropes, drags himself up, but Waller runs up. Kevin blocks to HEADBUTT, CHOP and CHOP! Then a forearm! But that’s the bad arm! Waller runs in, Kevin dodges and SUPERKICKS! Waller is in the corner, Kevin runs in to CANNONBALL! Kevin goes up the corner again, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Waller survives and Theory rubs it in that it was just a two. Kevin keeps his focus, kicks low, but Waller grabs the bad arm to stop the stunner! Waller STOMPS the fingers! FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Kevin endures, fights around, but Waller twists the wrist!

Kevin keeps fighting, reaches out, and ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Waller lets go at 4. Waller has Kevin in the corner, puts the bad hand inside a buckle pad, and then runs up to PUNT only buckle! Kevin rolls Waller up, KEVIN WINS!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall

Logan can’t even! Kevinn pulled off a minor miracle, can he do that all over again in the opening round of this coming tournament?


BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Bianca Belair w/ Charlotte Flair & Shotzi Blackheart VS Kairi Sane w/ DMG CTRL!

The Evil Genius said The EST will have to not just earn her rematch for the title, she’ll have to get through everyone in DMG CTRL first! Bianca said bet, but will she be able to sink the Pirate Princess? Or will Bayley’s tips help Kairi end the series before it begins?

SmackDown returns and DMG CTRL has a pep talk backstage. Dakota asks if Bayley is okay. Yeah, yeah, she’s good. Go, Kairi. Dakota says Bayley doesn’t seem like herself, and then Iyo says Bayley will stay backstage tonight. Bayley ends up the odd one out as the others make their entrance, what is that about? But that aside, the bell rings and the fans rally up for Bianca. Bianca and Kairi circle, approach, but Kairi dodges. They tie up, Bianca puts Kairi in a corner but Kairi dodges to KICK a leg! Kairi goes to roll up but Bianca stays up! Then Bianca handsprings free, and she runs Kairi over! Bianca dusts off her hands, then keeps moving.

Kairi drops, Bianca handsprings over her, and then runs her over again! Bianca wags her fingers, then drags Kairi up. Kairi throws body shots, but Bianca blocks the whip! Bianca reverses, Kairi uses ropes to go up and RANA, but Bianca handsprings through to DROPKICK! Fans fire up while Bianca eggs Kairi on. Bianca stands Kairi up, scoops her, but Kairi fights free! Kairi grabs the braid, but Bianca uses that to reel Kairi in and DECK her! Bianca runs, but Asuka trips her up while the ref is checking Kairi! Kairi fires off on Bianca while fans boo, and Kairi SLAPS Bianca! DMG CTRL taunts Bianca, Kairi runs, but Charlotte trips her!

Btu the ref SAW Charlotte do it! So the ref EJECTS Charlotte and Shotzi! Fans boo but then Asuka is caught slithering in! So the ref EJECTS DMG CTRL! Now all things are equal and that doesn’t sit well with DMG CTRL! Asuka protests but Bianca DROPKICKS her down! Kairi goes after Bianca, shoves her to a corner, but Bianca shoves Kairi!

Bayley has no words as her help had no effect! Bianca can check Kairi off the list and she continues on, who will she look to take down next?


BREAKING NEWS for the United States Championship Contender’s Tournament!

Our first two opening round matches are set! Dragon Lee and Santos Escobar get to run it back from Survivor Series while Bobby Lashley and Karrion Kross clash for the first time in the WWE! The special Tribute to the Troops edition of SmackDown is the perfect place to start this tournament, but who will move on to the second round?


Nick Aldis and Adam Pearce are both in the ring.

The General Managers are both here, and Aldis says “Ladies and gentlemen, as your General Manager, it is my distinct honor and privilege to welcome back to SmackDown, the Viper, Randy…! Orton…!” The fans fire up as Randy indeed makes his way to the ring, and he looks just as happy to be back! Orton joins Aldis and Pearce in the ring, strikes his pose on the corner, then revels in the fans chanting his name. Randy gets so fired up, he throws his vest off! Pearce says this is electric, but Aldis says, “How dare you interrupt me on MY show!” Pearce says Aldis better calm down. Randy is a Raw legend, that is where he belongs.

But Aldis can give Randy the one thing he wants, right here on SmackDown. Pearce knows what Aldis is getting at, and counter offers with a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity. Randy is rather taken aback, but Aldis says he can give Randy the guys who took him out. But “Ladies and gentlemen, things that live in Brooklyn,” here comes Paul Heyman. And he serves as the Wise Man to Your REIGNING! DEFENDING! UNDISPUTED! WWE UNIVERSAL HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…! Roman… Reigns. And look who’s back. “After 18 months on the shelf, thanks to Roman Reigns and The Bloodline, Randy Orton comes home looking for revenge.”

But there will be no RKOs this evening, and there will be no decision made by Randy Orton, because The Bloodline is going to make his decision for him. Fans boo but then here comes Solo Sikoa! Jimmy Uso is also with the Enforcer, and the GMs get outta there. Jimmy slides in but Randy stomps away! Solo run sin but Randy fires off hands! Randy fights them both 2v1 but that gets the better of him! But here comes L A KNIGHT! Fans go wild again as the Mega Star runs in and kicks Jimmy! Then he fires off on Solo! Fans chant “YEAH! YEAH!” with every shot! Knight dumps Solo out but Solo drags him out! So Knight fires hands then throws Solo into barriers!

Knight and Solo head up the ramp, but Orton gets Jimmy! He puts Jimmy in the ropes, to DRAPING DDT! And despite what Heyman said, fans want to see it! Orton grins and he hears those voices! Jimmy gets up, for an R K O!!! Heyman is furious, but Orton has the GMs hand over the contracts. Orton looks them both over, Heyman says to stay safe by going with Raw. But Orton looks at Jimmy, who is still out cold. So yeah, Orton signs with SmackDown! Then Orton gets on the mic to say, “Hey, Paul… You can call Roman Reigns. And you can tell him… Daddy’s back.” The fans fire up for that! Aldis raises Randy’s hand in celebration, only to get an RKO!!

The fans are even more fired up as Randy is going to do whatever he wants to whoever he wants! Will the Apex Predator soon make himself the Head of the Table?

My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown here to follow up Survivor Series while turning the corner. A brilliant story beat for how to get Orton on SmackDown so he can go after The Bloodline, and great move to have LA Knight help out. With Kevin now shifting his attention to Logan Paul and the US Championship, Knight and Orton are going to be a good duo going after the Bloodline together, probably have a tag match with Jimmy & Solo, and maybe a few singles matches, before Randy takes on Roman at the Royal Rumble. I don’t expect Randy to win the Universal Championship because it just doesn’t seem like Roman’s losing before Mania, maybe not even at Mania, but this is going to be good stuff for Randy in his return.

And speaking of the US Championship Contender’s Tournament, awesome field right there, because for one, Karrion Kross gets to do stuff again. And second, it has the classic “settling feuds here” matches you see in WWE tournaments. And also, it gives an NXT superstar an opportunity, possibly even a call-up, so can’t wait to see who HHHBK agree should jump in here. Really good promos from Logan, Kevin and A-Town Down Under to help set this in motion, and Kevin VS Waller was great stuff as a preview. Kevin snatching the win feels like an indicator that he’ll make it to the end, maybe even win the whole thing, only to sadly lose to Logan in the title match.

Lashley being in the field is great, too, he had an awesome opening match with Dunne. Dunne is having to find himself again as his current trio falls apart and then gets beat down by Pretty Deadly. I hope there’s a two birds, one Big Strong Boi opportunity taken here: put Tyler Bate in the contender’s tournament, give him a great showing, but then have him be Dunne’s old-new tag partner so that the mainstream WWE fandom can see the greatness of British Strong Style. And then of course Santos beats Wilde, and Dragon makes a great save to get some heat going into their rematch. I would like to think Dragon wins the rematch to move towards the title, and Santos can screw him over in the later rounds.

And we continue to get awesome stuff out of the DMG CTRL story. Bianca of course wants her title rematch and that means having her go against DMG CTRL again, but Iyo purposefully keeping Bayley at arm’s length is a nice detail. Bayley taking the pin in WarGames despite all her efforts, and then Bayley costing Kairi against Bianca despite her good intentions, the last straw is more than likely gonna be if/when Bayley loses to Bianca, and then maybe, just maybe, the same way Becky and Charlotte made amends, Bayley will try to make amends with Charlotte. There are a lot of stories in WWE right now about forgiveness and grudges, it’d be fitting if Bayley went on a soul searching journey a la Jey Uso and Sami Zayn.

My Score: 8.8/10
