PLAY BY PLAY

SmackDown opens with Daniel Bryan!

The Yes Movement is just days from an attempt at #YEStleMania2 and Bryan gets a mic to say, “We are so close.” We’re so close to the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania! Everyone is excited and Bryan is excited about everything! He’s excited to see the set, smell the smoke and breathe the fresh air of Raymond James Stadium! But he’s most excited to finally hear the roar of the WWE Universe in person! And don’t get Bryan wrong, the ThunderDome is awesome. But there is nothing like wrestling in front of a live audience, there’s nothing like being in front of fans at WrestleMania, and there is nothing like winning the Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania!

And that is what Bryan can’t wait for: he will walk down to the ring with 25 THOUSAND people chanting “YES!” in unison, there is nothing like it! Bryan is often associated with “Yes,” but most of his career revolved around being told, “No.” Is Bryan big enough? No. Does Bryan belong in the WWE? No. Is Bryan a superstar? No. Is he best for business? No. Can he be the face of the WWE? No. Does Bryan deserve to be in the main event of Mania? If you asked Batista and Randy Orton, or now Edge and Roman Reigns, they would say, “No.” But if you ask Bryan, “You’re damn right I do!”

Bryan is lucky, because every time he was told no, he was also told to ignore it! Bryan was told to dig down deep and find the truth, and that is how he came to say, “Yes, yes, yes.” Fans give the Yes Fingers in solidarity as Bryan says, “Every time life told me no, I said yes.” Will Bryan ever be able to wrestle again? Doctors said no, Bryan said yes. When he came back, could he ever be world champion again? People said no, Bryan said yes! At Fastlane, would Bryan tap out the un-tap-out-able Roman Reigns? Roman said no, Bryan said yes! And can Bryan main event Mania one more time? Adam Pearce first said no, but then he said yes!

This Sunday, at WrestleMania 37 Night 2, this is by far the biggest match of Bryan’s career. A Triple Threat for the Universal Championship. There’s Edge, furious because he thinks Bryan stole the spotlight that belongs on him. There’s Roman, who is enraged because for the first time, Bryan made him tap out, and if it happens again, Roman loses the title, isn’t Head of the Table or anything else he thinks he is. When people are furious, they are dangerous, and Edge and Roman are among the most dangerous in the WWE. But which Bryan are they facing? Not the SmackDown GM, not even “family man” Bryan.

This Sunday, they get the BEST DAMN BRYAN, the most DANGEROUS Bryan, the Bryan that tapped out Roman! The Bryan that will kick Edge’s head in despite his bad neck! The Bryan with fire in his eyes and in his heart as he’s willing to do anything! And that leads us to one last question: Can Daniel Bryan walk out of the main event of WrestleMania as NEW Universal Champion? Fans already know, and Bryan says “Yes. YES. YES! YES! YES!” But will the “No” from Roman and Edge ruin Bryan’s dreams?

 

The Street Profits are fired up, too!

Kayla tries to get an interview with them but both Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford are chanting “YES! YES!” with Bryan. Kayla knows this is #TakeBackSeason, but how does it feel to have a title opportunity? It’s about time! Bryan will win the Universal Championship and the Profits will win BACK the SmackDown Tag titles! But then Roode & Ziggler attack! The champions want an advantage in the Fatal 4 Way, but Dawkins throws Ziggler into a monitor! Things spill out on stage, and here come the ALPHA ACADEMY! And the Mysterios! The brawl spills down the ramp, Rey and Dominik are sent into barriers, and SmackDown goes to break!

 

SmackDown Tag Team Championships Fatal 4 Way: The Dirty Dawgs VS The Street Profits VS The Alpha Academy VS The Mysterios!

SmackDown returns and these four teams are in the ring and this match is underway! In this Fatal 4 Way, only two teams are legal, and Chad Gable is throwing Dominik around with a waistlock! Dom gets up to throw Gable out, then dropkicks him as he returns! Dom arm-drags Gable around and clamps onto the arm. Gable gets up, pulls hair and Otis tags in. The Alphas whip, Dom tries to wheelbarrow but he just gets a POLISH HAMMER SUPLEX! Ziggler tags in to cover Dom, TWO! Ziggler is frustrated already, bumps Dom off buckles, then tags Roode in. The Dawgs mug Dom, Roode throws hands, and Roode whips Dom to ropes to CLOBBER him! Cover, TWO!

Roode drives his knee into Dom and has a chinlock. Dom endures, fans rally up and Dom fights back with body shots. Roode CLUBS Dom down, drags him up and scoops for a SLAM! Roode runs but Gable tags in! Gable drags Dom around to JAM the arm! Cover, TWO! Gable clamps onto the arm and grinds the shoulder, but Dom endures as Rey coaches him on. Dom gets up, Gable wrenches and back suplexes but Dom crossbodies! ONE, and Gable has a foot. Dom BOOTS Gable away and tags in Rey! Rey fires off on Gable, Gable whips but Rey dodges to tilt-o-whirl headscissor! Rey kicks Gable and whips, but Gable reverses.

Rey elbows back, goes up and QUEBRADA, but into a scoop! Tilt-o-whirl DDT from Rey! Cover, the Dawgs break it! Ziggler & Roode hit the Profits, but the Mysterios double DROPKICK! The Mysterios DECK Otis, too! The Mysterios whip Gable, pop him up and out but Otis catches him! Dom goes up and around to open the way, Rey DIVES! Then Dom MOONSAULTS! The Mysterios stand tall while SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and Roode keeps Ford from his corner! Roode knees low and hard, whips him to the Dawgs’ corner but Ford goes up and over and  handsprings to show off before he dropkicks Roode down! Cover, TWO! Ford is annoyed but he brings Roode up. Roode hits back, CLUBS Ford down, then has him in the Dawgs’ territory with the back suplex. Ford lands on his feet to ROCK Ziggler, ROCK Roode, then ROCK Ziggler again! But Ford turns around into Roode’s GLORIOUS SPINEBUSTER! Otis tags in off Roode and backs him down. Ziggler and Gable argue but Otis runs to DISCUS Ford down! Cover, Rey breaks it!

Otis is mad but he stays focused on Ford. Otis scoops and SLAMS Ford, runs and drops an elbow! Otis fires up for the Academy and he clamps onto Ford with a neck wrench. Ford gets up, Otis whips him and ROCKS him with that body shot! Tag to Gable, the Alphas mug Ford then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Ford survives but Gable clamps onto him again. Ziggler tags in off Gable to return the favor, and he clamps onto Ford with a camel clutch. Ford fights up,. Ziggler chinlocks and cranks back, but Ford back suplexes! Ziggler lands on his feet to dropkick Ford down! Ziggler wants Ford to get up, he aims but no Famouser! Ford hits a SPIRALING POWERBOMB!

Both men are down, the four teams are fired up and so are the fans! Ford and Ziggler grab at each other to get past the other, hot tags to Roode and Dawkins! Dawkins rallies on Roode, dodges and leaping back elbows! Gable runs in, into an EXPLODER! Roode CYCLONE SPLASHES Roode, then runs to BULLDOG! But Rey tags in to stop that, and he SEATED SENTONS! Dawkins runs at Rey but is dumped out! Rey tilt-o-whirls and sends Roode into Otis! Tag to Dom, Dom dropkicks Roode onto ropes! Ziggler gets in but get added to the call! DOUBLE 619!! Rey gets Ziggler out, Dom goes up top, FROG SPLASH!! Cover, Otis SPLASHES down!!

Rey  leaps but into Otis’ arms! Otis slides Rey out to the floor, but the Profits DOUBLE DROPKICK Otis out! Ford runs to FLY and take Otis down! Dom is down, Roode is down, but Dawkins and Gable tag in off them! Dawkins sunset flips and covers, TWO! Gable sits on the cover, TWO! Gable runs, gets around Dawkins and backslides, ONE!! Dawkins swings, but into CHAOS THEORY!! But Ford tagged in first! And he enters FROM THE HEAVENS!! But Roode tags in! Ziggler SUPERKICKS Ford out!! Roode covers, the Dirty Dawgs win!!

Winners: The Dirty Dawgs, by pinfall (still SmackDown Tag Team Champions)

It was utter chaos near the end, and the champions pounced on it! If three teams can’t stop them, will their reign ever end?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

The EST is a night away from facing Sasha Banks in her first-ever WrestleMania match! Can she put into words what she’s feeling? Well, butterflies for sure, but that’s not bad! She’s excited and nervous. But her daddy always told her that being nervous means you care. Just don’t be scared. And she was raised not to be scared of anything. She has to be mentally tough as well as physically because this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Even when no one was watching, she was working so hard. Now the world gets to see what she can do.

But Sasha’s been here before and will do anything to keep the title. That makes her dangerous. What about Bianca? Well dang, Kayla. But no, the strongest, the fastest, the roughest, the toughest has all the tools to win and that makes HER dangerous. So when Bianca wins and becomes champion, that will be the greatEST night of her life!

 

WWE Media was with Big E as he went back to his roots.

Being he’s from Tampa, Florida, he went home before Mania. “Apollo, you spend a lot of time talking about remembering where you came from, reconnecting with home.'” Big E never forgot. WrestleMania is in HIS city, and this here is Big Jay the barber, a Tampa legend. This is where Big E gets his hair cut, and where he gets his mind right. Then there’s Downtown Tampa and the Calf Street Bridge, near his alma mater of Tampa Prep. This is where he would run two miles before a grueling two hours of wrestling training. This is what taught Big E about the grind.

And then there’s Raymond James Stadium, where Big E played in his high school all star game 17 years ago! Where champions shined! Big E owns a piece of this! And this is where Big E will walk in and walk out THE WWE Intercontinental Champion! And this is where Apollo’s dreams will come to die! Apollo wants to make this personal but Big E is ready to give it back in kind! Who goes bigger to have the gold at the end of WrestleMania?

 

Nia Jax w/ Shayna Baszler & Reginald VS Tamina w/ Natalya!

Last week, the Queen of Spades was caught off-guard by the Queen of Harts, and then all hell broke loose in the Women’s Tag Division! This time, the Irresistible Force and the Daughter of Superfly see if gold is thicker than blood. Who gains massive momentum going into WrestleMania Weekend?

SmackDown returns, the bell rings and the two tie up! Nia shoves Tamina down and says SHE dominates this! Tamina and Nia tie up again, and now Tamina shoves Nia! “Now that’s what I’m talking about!!” Nia gets up to pie face Tamina, Tamina SLAPS Nia! And then fires off haymakers! Tamina stomps away, the ref backs her off, and Reggie gets upset. Tamina grabs Reggie to drag him in! Shayna tries to save Reggie, and Nia CLOBBERS Tamina! The ref reprimands but Nia looms over Tamina. Nia puts Tamina in a corner, runs in and SPLASHES! Tamina goes rolling, Natty rallies for her but Nia KICKS her while she’s down!

Nia pushes Tamina around and says she’s not afraid of her. Nia stands Tamina up but Tamina fires off! Nia headbutts Tamina down! Tamina ends up in a corner, Nia stands on her! “I’m NOT scared of you!!” The ref counts, Nia lets off and Nia drags Tamina up to whip her to another corner. Nia runs in but Tamina dodges, Nia POSTS herself! Natty fires up and Tamina gets to the apron. Tamina drags herself up, heads for the corner and up top, but Nia is there! Tamina headbutts her away! Shayna gets on the apron, but Natty yanks her down! Natty whips but Shayna reverses to send Natty into steel steps!

Nia gets Tamina in a fireman’s carry but Tamina slips off! SUPERKICK to SAMOAN DROP!! Tamina can’t cover, though, that took so much in itself! Cover, but Shayna attacks!!

Winner: Tamina, by disqualification

Natty gets in and fires off on Shayna! They brawl, Tamina helps Natty and they double whip Shayna. Shayna holds ropes, bails out and regroups with Nia and Reggie! The second generation superstars have to fight through Tag Team Turmoil, but will they have the motivation and aggression to do it?

 

Backstage interview with The Riott Squad.

Liv and Ruby are here but Billie barges in again. Why? She doesn’t even have a partner. Um, sorry, what was that? Carmella is here! She’s Billie’s partner. Oh wow. But anyway, Ruby and Liv are laser focused on Tag Team Turmoil. But that means getting through four other teams, because now Billie & Mella are added to the mix. What does the Squad have that gets them the edge? Well besides getting rid of the sidekick, Liv & Ruby are more in synch than ever. Aw, how cute. If Mella wanted a lesson on friendship, she’d watch an after school special. Those WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships are Mella’s. Ahem. Right, hers and Billie’s. Because Mella Is Money!

And Billie…? is annoyingly- er, amazingly persistent, and that is an advantage in itself. But what about Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke? What about them? But then the Ravishing Glow gets in on this. Are we doing this again? Yes. But now it’s a BRAWL!! All four teams go after each other, the Squad stands tall over Billie & Mella, but then Natty & Tamina add on! They assault Dana, clobber Liv, and then TOSS Liv into a road case! Natty says Dana is worthless, and throws her into the same road case! Ain’t nobody meana than Natty & Tamina! Does any other team stand a chance of surviving Tag Team Turmoil this Saturday?

 

“Think you know Cesaro? Think again.”

Wait, what is this political commercial style video? “Cesaro has been competing in the WWE for 10 years, but he has never competed in a 1-on-1 match at WrestleMania.” He has not won the Universal Championship, either. Is this the example we want for our children? Seth Rollins is the superstar we all deserve as a two-time Universal Champion, Royal Rumble winner, and has had some of the most iconic moments in WrestleMania history. Rollins knows what it’s like to take charge, lead and win. He is a man we can all look up to. Just #EmbraceTheVision.

“This ad has been paid for by friends of Seth Rollins and is in no way directly associated with Seth Rollins himself,” even though this is Seth Rollins saying all that… Is Rollins running for office or just trying to anger Cesaro more?

 

EDGE heads to the ring!

The Rated R Superstar has another steel chair in hand because he is still seething over what Bryan did to him last week! We’ll hear his response to that and more, after the break!

SmackDown returns and Edge sits in the chair, with the spotlight on him. “I went to WrestleMania 6, Hulk Hogan VS The Ultimate Warrior. That night, I knew what I needed to do with the rest of my life.” And when Edge dreams things, he has to manifest them. That’s how things work for him. Some might relate but many won’t, “because common sense isn’t very common.” Edge did become a WWE superstar. A superstar who accomplished everything he could, “but ending my career on my terms.” Now, some will also say, “Isn’t that enough?>” If you have to ask, you have no idea the mentality it takes to see the heights he’s seen. To fight to get your career back for nine YEARS!

Edge didn’t “walk away from this,” he had this ripped away from him! He didn’t try to forge another career, this is all that he’s wanted to do! Edge fought and clawed and got his career back from fate’s hands. He didn’t come back for some greatest hits tour, to be the shell of his former self. He came back to steal the show and main event WrestleMania! Edge missed nine of them, so he won’t apologize for that. Daniel Bryan, he comes out saying this could be his last. Have you heard? This could be Bryan’s last! A month in Bryan’s is a year in Edge’s so what do you think this is for him!?

Bryan used sympathy to weasel his way in, even after all his ridiculous ideas! Facing the winner immediately? No. Face the winner the next day? No. But somehow this is a TRIPLE THREAT!? Bryan could pin Roman and Edge will have nothing! Instead of a 1v1, a Clash of the Titans between two eras, we have “some indie bookstore clerk troll” sticking his nose in Edge’s business. And then there’s Roman. Roman walks around like he created this and everyone else owes him. Edge doesn’t owe Roman anything. Roman owes Edge. Roman came into the WWE in a three man group. He made an entrance through the crowd. He used a Spear finisher. Well who set that template? “You’re Samoan Edge.”

Edge will admit that Roman is good. He always has been. Edge sees what Roman’s become. Edge came back to swing for the fences, and Roman is the Green Monster. They’ve had their 1v1 ripped away from them, the fans had that ripped away from them! Everyone sees Bryan for who he is, except for the Yes Lemmings who are the same people who used to chant, “What?” And somewhere in all of this, the fact that is lost is that this match takes place TEN YEARS TO THE DAY from Edge’s forced retirement. No mention of that, either. No video packages, no social media posts, no touching videos with music. NOTHING. Anyone else, that narrative is driven into the ground!

And why is that? Why is Edge having to remind us of this? Because since he’s returned, he hasn’t gotten the respect he deserves! Edge fought back from a torn triceps to enter the 2021 Royal Rumble, and then he outlasted 29 other superstars, and punched his ticket to Mania! Edge shouldn’t have to jump through hoops! Edge has come back from something no one has ever come back from! NINE YEARS! TRIPLE NECK FUSION! “You have no idea the pain that I have gone through to get this back!!” You want to call Edge a part-timer? That he’ll just phone it in? He’s doing ranas off the top ropes! He is doing what no one has ever done! And this is a slap in the face to him!

“So now, it’s time for me to take and demand the respect that I deserve. You will put respect on my name. In case you forgot, in case you never knew, I am the Rated R Superstar!” Fate, God’s Will, whatever you call it, Edge will be the NEXT Universal Champion, because he’s dreamt it, and now he must manifest it! Will Edge rise back up and return to the top with a capital (Rated) R?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville talk backstage.

Pearce says no one a year ago could’ve seen the main event we’re getting. Everyone is so excited. But Sonya doesn’t think it was fair to have made Ziggler & Roode defend their titles against three other teams at once. What does that have to do with Mania? It doesn’t. But thinking about it, Sonya doesn’t agree with Pearce’s decision, either. Bryan deserves a title match, yes. But at Mania, it should’ve been Roman VS Edge, 1v1. Just saying.

 

Backstage interview with Sasha Banks.

The Boss’ response to Bianca from earlier is, “Do you honestly think I care what Bianca has to say?” No! Bianca has to hear what Sasha has to say, just like everyone wants to. Bianca may be the EST, but she’s not the BEST, because Sasha is. Sasha has and always will be. Just like at Mania, Bianca will give Sasha her all, and Sasha will give it all back, boss style! And tomorrow night, when Sasha makes Bianca tap out, Bianca will finally realize her place is beneath Sasha. Bianca will give it her all, and realize it is never going to be enough against Sasha, the B-E-S-T, who will still be SmackDown Women’s Champion! Sasha is laughing now, but will Bianca have the last laugh this Saturday?

 

WWE Media was with Sami Zayn as he visited the Paul Brothers.

He wanted to check in with his “buddy,” Logan Paul, and turns out he is sparring with brother Jake. The Paul brothers are surprised that Sami is here. Sami says hey and says the trailer is huge! It’s getting so much attention thanks to Logan’s endorsement! Mania is going to be amazing! Sami has an idea! These three can work out together! Okay, stay right there! Sami hurries back to his car to get his things, but where did he park? Oops, the door. Sami knocks to get someone to let him back in, but the guy says they’re closed. Sami says he’s here with Logan! That doesn’t change anything and Sami is shut out.

 

Sami shows up here on SmackDown!

He’s upset that they show that! That was an edited, selective version! Logan and Jake apologized to the security guard and they hung out the next day! Well what did Logan have for breakfast? Grapefruit? Sami says no one can deny him! He will vindicate himself against Kevin Owens! But the music plays Sami off because superstars are heading to the ring for the- KEVIN ATTACKS SAMI! They brawl, Kevin bumps Sami off the desk then kicks! Sami gets away from the Stunner and runs away! Kevin hurries after him but Sami’s quick. Kevin tells Sami he’ll see him at Mania! But after the break, the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal returns!

 

2021 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal!

There are so many superstars from Raw and SmackDown, it’s easier to say who isn’t in this match. But with the trophy nearby, who will be inspired to join Cesaro, The Big Show, Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Matt Hardy and Braun Strowman on the plaque? Or, will KING Corbin go down as the first-ever two-time winner of this match?

The bell rings and it’s just chaos! Murphy is after Kalisto, Corbin is after Erik, Benjamin and Alexander stick together, T-Bar tries to get Gulak out while Ryker steps on Slapjack. Tozawa calls upon his ninja power but gets thrown out, Alexander & Benjamin ELIMINATE him! Alexander & Benjamin mug Tucker, T-Bar and Mace drag Murphy up, and Lucha House Party is after Shinsuke Nakamura. Alexander & Benjamin ELIMINATE Tucker! Ali rallies everyone else against these two, and it’s a massive handicap brawl!! Only a few others splinter off, but the group throws and ELIMINATES Benjamin! And then ELIMINATE Alexander! No more allies as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and it’s still very hectic! Kalisto fights off Corbin and Jey Uso, T-Bar is after Gulak on the apron, and Elias helps Ryker against Erik. Erik whips Elias but Elias reverses and Ryker holds the ropes down, they ELIMINATE Erik! Mace and Nakamura brawl, but Mace helps T-Bar against the Cruiserweights! T-Bar and Mace get Gulak up but he gets free, only to get DOUBLE CHOKE SLAMMED out of the ring! Slapjack is alone, Carrillo fires off on Mace and T-Bar! But they get Carrillo for a DOUBLE TOSS out onto Gulak! Carrillo is ELIMINATED! Slapjack slingshots into Ryker’s ATOMIC DROP! Elias KNEES Slapjack out and ELIMINATES him!

T-Bar and Mace see that and glare at Elias and Ryker! They brawl 2v2! T-Bar ROCKS Elias, Mace ROCKS Ryker! They both shove Ryker and Elias out and ELIMINATE them! But Ali gets revenge and ELIMINATES Mace!! T-Bar grabs Ali, but Murphy saves Ali? T-Bar shoves him away, Ali body scissors and dumps T-Bar to ELIMINATE him!! But then Murphy brings Ali up, only for Ali to ROUNDHOUSE! Ali slingshots into a KNEE TRIGGER! Kalisto SCHOOL BOY KICKS Murphy! LHP hits a SUPER SPLASH! Kalisto says they can go to Mania! “Lucha! Lucha!” Lince says nah, and he CHOPS Kalisto! Metalik and Lince whip Kalisto, he fights back!

Kalisto hops up, reels Metalik in but Lince GAMANGIRIS Kalisto out to ELIMINATE him! But then Metalik ELIMINATES Lince! Every luchador for himself, after all! But Corbin is after Metalik! Metalik kicks back, runs in but Corbin TOSSES him to ELIMINATE him! The Wolf King is still in this as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns and we’re down to a final seven! King Corbin stomps Ricochet, Jey Uso has Shinsuke Nakamura down in another corner, with Mustafa Ali helping, and Angel Garza battles with Buddy Murphy on the edge of the apron! Murphy holds on, gets up and hits back! Garza and Murphy brawl, Corbin throws Ricochet over but he holds on. Murphy BOOTS Garza, ducks the clotheslines, but Garza elbows the waistlock away. Garza throws more elbows, runs, but Murphy grabs at him! The pants tear away! Garza grins and shrugs, but runs into a BOOT! Corbin runs in, Murphy throws the pants at him and climbs up, but Corbin BLASTS Murphy off, and ELIMINATES him!

Garza gets Nakamura up top but Nakamura boots him away! Garza comes back with a clothesline, but is put on the top for the TOP SHELF KNEE! Garza holds on, shoulders back, but a KINSHASA ELIMINATES Garza! Now we’re at five! Nakamura BOOTS Jey, Corbin CLOBBERS him, but ALi is after former rival in Ricochet! Ricochet escapes the suplex, fights off another, and KNEES ALi, to then HEADCISSOR him onto Garza for the ELIMINATION! Jey runs in but into a shoulder! Corbin trips Ricochet’s springboard up, Jey SUPERKICKS and ELIMINATES him! Now it’s all SmackDown with Corbin, Nakamura and #MainEventJey!

And Nakamura is getting mugged 2v1! Jey stomps Nakamura, Corbin pushes him aside so he can stomp Nakamura! But Jey SUPERKICKS Corbin, dumps him out but Corbin holds on! Jey doesn’t know that, he whips Nakamura but Nakamura throws him out! KINSHASA ELIMINATES Corbin! Nakamura and Jey are the final two and they reset, but Jey fireman’s carries! Nakamura fights free, fires off, misses one kick but not the LEFT! Nakamura aims, and gets him for an STO! Nakamura fires up, “YAO~!” SUPERKICK from Jey first! But the KINSHASA comes back anyway!! Nakamura drags Jey up, whips him but Jey reverses to SUPLEX and ELIMINATE Nakamura! JEY WINS!

Winner: Jey Uso (2021 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner)

GOTTEE! Jey wants his name right on that plaque! And now, Roman Reigns walks out! The Tribal Chief joins Jey in the ring to give his final thoughts before Mania, after the break!

 

SmackDown returns once more, with Roman Reigns in the ring.

His Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, hands him a mic. “I’m annoyed that I even have to be here. I’m not a politician, I’m not running for president, I don’t have to sell myself to you.” He’s got better things to worry about. He is in a Triple Threat, where he can lose without even being pinned. But since Roman is here, he’ll state the obvious: ON Sunday night, in the main event of WrestleMania, Roman will show up and win. You  know the catchphrase, you bought the shirt. That might seem arrogant, but for Roman, those are his humble beginnings. Show day is the easy day. Every single day of the week, when you prep at a 12, the 10 comes easy.

But to everyone else in this company, you wanna know what “show up and win” means? When Roman shows up, the WWE is winning. And he could be like Edge or Bryan. He could have one good week. Bryan’s real tough last week. Edge’s a real badass. But ever since he came back at SummerSlam, Roman’s been great week after week after week, for THIRTY WEEKS IN A ROW! Roman says the numbers don’t lie. Who do you think changed the ratings for SmackDown? ROMAN. Who made this title relevant? ROMAN. SO that brings him to Edge and Bryan, “the dreamers.”

This title is there dream, right? Bryan doesn’t want to hear “no” anymore, he wants someone to say “yes.” But now he’s saying he made Roman tap out? Fans know he did! “DB, you’re holding on by a thread here. If you made me tap out, then you’d be champion. But you’re not, and you won’t ever be. Because on Sunday, you can’t make me tap out.” And Edge, he wants to complete his comeback? Nobody took this from him? That’s garbage. Direct a finger at Roman because he took this from him! And from everyone else! Dreamers, the lot of them. This is where the comeback ends.

Edge thinks this title is his dream? No, being in the WrestleMania main event with Roman Reigns, THAT is the dream, and where the story ends! And where Roman’s story begins. These guys are the launching pad. If you thought what Roman did this past year was special, wait to see what’s next. Roman is Head of the Table because he’s not a dreamer! Dreamers are selfish! They only think of themselves! Roman’s the “man with the golden hand,” and everything he does has a purpose. Roman saves careers, right, Paul? Yes, sir! Who gave Jey the greatest year of his career? Roman. They all have gold to prove it now.

But Edge, Bryan, Roman won’t do that for them, He’ll crush their dreams! This isn’t a prediction, this is a spoiler! This Sunday, THE main event of Mania, Roman will wreck everyone and leave! Roman will smash ’em, stack ’em, pin ’em, and the ref will count to three. Then Roman will hold his Universal Championship high over his head and they will look up to see a man greater than them! Then millions of dollars of pyro go off, and they will feel the whole world #AcknowledgeMe. Roman has the last say tonight, but will he have the last say come this Sunday?


My Thoughts:

Well, I will say, this was a go-home episode. It had the Go Home Syndrome of too many recap packages and commercial breaks, not a lot of new action. This acted more like the WrestleMania kickoff show than it did a go-home. I will say that the promos from Bryan, Edge and Roman were all great stuff, because all three guys are great on the mic, but that doesn’t change the math we got last week. Bryan is rolling in hot only to be taken out by someone else. But who knows? WWE might think about how the fans are going to really cheer for him now that they’re live and in person, they could ditch the math and really give us #YEStleMania2 like how they gave us KofiMania, Becky Lynch winning both titles AND Rollins slaying the Beast all in one year at WM35.

The Fatal 4 Way Tag was a lot of fun, though I should’ve figured WWE would pull the “only two teams legal at once” card so that it’d be easier for the champions to retain and continue their reign. Maybe at Money in the Bank, The Profits get a fait 2v2, fitting under Sonya thinking it was unfair for the champs. That’s another thing, they have to expound on why Sonya is protective of Ziggler & Roode. Can it tie Bianca into it, too? Bianca VS Sonya would be pretty awesome. Bianca and Sasha had good promos tonight, but again I don’t think it changes the math. I am pretty sure Bianca wins, because that would make Mania that much bigger.

The RawDown Women’s Tag Division got some good play tonight, even if we got another scrub of a finish for the tag champs and Natty-Tamina. Tamina & Natty are going so strong, I can’t be sure they come out of the Tag Team Turmoil. I do appreciate that Mella & Billie are being put in the match, they might make a difference to a degree, but I can’t be sure. I still feel it should be Natty & Tamina because of how dominant they’re getting to be, so maybe WWE again ditches their usual math and lets those two win it all after standing tall. I am a little confused and disappointed as to why we’re not getting Bayley somewhere, such as forming #BayMella again, but maybe we’ll see something happen past Mania.

Seth Rollins’ political campaign ad parody was a hilarious addition to his gimmick here. Usually political gags in wrestling are awful but this was much more tongue in cheek than most of those other attempts. All of this has to mean Rollins loses, though, with WWE actually keeping to the go-home math. I wish they’d done this a week sooner so that Cesaro could come up with his counter, pointing out the legitimately (in kayfabe of course) awful things Rollins has done. Rollins can then say that’s “fake news” or “false narrative,” and then still loses the match. Sami did that a bit tonight, he and Kevin had a good brawl, but their match can still go either way to me.

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal was about as good as any WWE battle royal could go, and it was great for Jey that he won, but it also seems a shame. There could’ve been some story going past Mania if Jey lost at the last second in a reversal of what he did to Nakamura, so that should Roman retain, we could see a build to Roman VS Nakamura. Just on ring work, that’d be as good as any other feud Roman’s gotten since becoming Tribal Chief. It could still happen by way of Nakamura being deserving anyway, but every little detail helps the build.

My Score: 8.1/10

The House of Black’s Aussie Juggernaut opens Collision on Revolution Eve, but wait! Mark Briscoe drags Buddy out of the ring! The fans fire up but no, Mark is NOT Buddy’s opponent!

Mark presses a button, and the flames from Buddy’s entrance literally fire up! Buddy almost gets burned! Security rushes in but Mark keeps throwing Buddy around! Mark shoves Buddy to where the flamethrower is!! But then security swarms him before he can get the switch! The House regroups and retreats before facing disaster! Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the three stare down. The fans cheer for “CERO! MIEDO!” and Penta reminds Dante that they still owe each other. So listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Dante but then Keith shoves Penta. Penta takes the glove off! The fans fire up as Penta calls to Abrahantes, but then Keith HEADBUTTS Penta down! Then Dante SUPERKICKS Keith down! Penta gets up to SUPERKICK Dante! Penta KICKS Dante in a leg, KICKS Keith in a leg, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

The fans fire up as Dante bails out and Penta takes aim. Penta builds speed but Keith is back to BOOT him! Fans are torn but Keith just reels Penta in. Keith underhooks but Penta wrenches out. Keith BOOTS the lariat away to then EXPLODER! Keith covers, TWO! Penta stays in this but also goes out of the ring.

They go forearm for forearm, Keith CHOPS and then DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up so Dante DOUBLE CROSSBODIES them down! The fans fire up and Dante DIVES! Direct hit into Keith, then Dante runs to DIVE on Penta! The fans fire up again and Dante is feeling it as Collision goes picture in picture.

Dante drags Penta up, DECKS him with a forearm, then goes around the way. The fans fire up with Dante, but Keith BOOTS him down! Keith drags Dante up, CHOPS him, and Dante falls over. Keith turns around into Penta’s SUPERKICK! Penta drags Keith up, SMACKS him off the steps, then drags Dante up. Penta puts Dante against railing, hooks a leg around it, and KICKS! Penta assures the ref, he hit thigh and knee, not groin. Penta stands Keith up but Keith CLAWS Penta’s eyes! The ref reprimands but can’t do much more than that, and Keith KICKS Dante! Keith brings Dante up and into the ring.

Penta chicken wings Keith! Dante WRECKS Keith with a dropkick! But then Penta grabs Dante to spin him around on the apron, and KICK him back into the ring! The fans fire up with “CERO! MIEDO!” while Penta brings Keith into the ring. Penta keeps the chant going but Keith sits up with grit teeth. Keith seethes but Penta brings Dante up first. Collision returns to single picture as Penta CHOPS Dante! Dante CHOPS Penta! Then Dante CHOPS Keith! Keith CHOPS Dante and Penta! Penta SUPERKICKS Dante, Dante SUPERKICKS Keith, so Keith SUPERKICKS Penta! Then Keith and Penta DOUBLE SUPERKICK Dante!

Penta then kicks Keith low, reels him in, “CERO! MIEDO!” But Keith RAMS Penta into buckles! Keith fires off CHOPS and forearms! Penta shoves Keith away, but Keith comes back, only to be put up top. Keith HEADBUTTS Penta, reels him in, DIAMOND- NO, Penta stops that and Dante SUPERKICKS Keith! Penta uses Keith for a step, DESTROYER on Dante! Cover, Keith breaks it!! Keith saves Dante but also himself in this match, but “CERO! MIEDO!” continues to echo out in Huntsville. Keith storms up, but Penta KICKS and KICKS and “CERO! MIEDO!” Springboard, but into a BOOT!

Cover, Dante wins!!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Revolution)

A huge win for Angelo Dorado, he is the final man in the All-Star Scramble! Will Dante use his speed and agility to snatch that golden ticket to the top?

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees.

My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
