PLAY BY PLAY

Roman Reigns watches the recap package for this week.

The dominance and brutality the Head of the Table showed is strong in every moment. And Jey Uso sits by Roman’s side as the Right Hand Man, but he looks down at the floor. Roman says, “I saved y’all’s ass last week. Y’all owe me. What’s the one thing that I will not stand for?” Jey speaks up, and says, “Never embarrass the family, Uce.” Roman nods and says Jey clearly understands. But does Jimmy? Speaking of which, the Usos’ music plays!

Jimmy Uso heads to the ring!

Jimmy goes by himself while Roman and Jey are still in Roman’s private suite, and gets a mic to say, “Last week, was supposed to be a celebration. Tonight, we supposed to be in here, seven-time WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but no. We got robbed.” Jimmy isn’t making excuses, he’s just spitting facts! First, the ref blew the call. Everyone saw Uce’s shoulder was up, ya boi kicked out! But it was cool cuz they got round two. They were doing what the Usos do but then here he come. Head of the Table sticking his nose in their business! Roman just had to make it about Roman! Couldn’t let the Usos get it and get what was theirs!

If you ask Jimmy, Roman got them disqualified on purpose! Roman is watching and is not happy hearing that. Jimmy asks what the point was. Roman beat up Rey-Rey, choked out Dom, almost knocked Dom’s head off his shoulders. Jimmy knows what it is, he sat back and thought about it and realized that Roman’s jealous! Roman’s jealous of Jimmy and how he’s back! And how he wants his brother with him! And because the Usos want to rep the family with gold, too, just like Roman! Jimmy sees through Roman. All these mind games are to tear brother from brother. Jimmy says HE is his brother’s keeper, NOT Roman!

So tonight, Jimmy wants Roman to hear him: Jimmy promises that he’ll do something that he won’t regret! Instead of Rey coming back for what happened to Dom, is Jimmy coming to get back for what Roman’s done to Jey? Roman looks to Jey and says no one would confuse Roman for his brother. Jey needs to take care of this. Is Jey only going to prove Roman right by doing his dirty work? Is Jey gonna get his own brother?!

 

Jey confronts Jimmy backstage.

Jey asks what that was all about but Jimmy wants him to calm down. Jimmy asks Jey if he thinks they could’ve won the tag titles. Answer him, Uce! Do you think they were going to win the tag titles? Yes, right? So Jey was mad that they got DQ’d last week! Jimmy says, “Y’know what, Uce? It can’t be like this no more!” It can’t keep going like this. When Jimmy told Jey to go, Jey froze! Jey froze on Jimmy! Jimmy needed Jey! They’re family! They’re brothers! They’re twins! Jey is conflicted, rubbing his head, and Jimmy says if we’re talking about the disgrace of the family, it’s ROMAN that’s disgracing the family!

Then what is Jey supposed to do!? Jimmy has been gone a year! Jey’s loyalty is with the Tribal Chief! Jey’s stuck in the middle with no way out! What does Jimmy want Jey to do? Jimmy pats his brother’s shoulders. If Roman wants to see Jimmy, Jimmy will be in the Usos’ room. Jey is still conflicted, but is Jimmy going to settle this for all of them?

 

Big E & Kevin Owens VS Sami Zayn & Apollo Crews w/ Commander Azeez!

Both the Powerhouse of Positivity and the Prizefighter have had their grievances with the Prince of Nigeria over the WWE Intercontinental Championship, and the Champion of the People isn’t exactly innocent in all this. Will Big E and KO #ThinkBig and #JustKeepFighting towards the same gold? Or will Sami actually be of help to someone and turn away two of Apollo’s challengers?

SmackDown returns as Apollo and Azeez make their entrance. Sami is already ringside, arguing with his best frenemy, Kevin. The teams sort out, Azeez keeps watch as Apollo sets his belt aside to start against Kevin. Kevin sucker punches Sami then fires off on Apollo! Kevin whips Apollo and runs him over! Then Kevin goes out to get Sami and throw him into barriers! Kevin fires off hands, then throws Sami into more barriers! Kevin returns to the ring but Apollo BOOTS him! Apollo runs but into Kevin’s LARIAT! Kevin drops a senton, then sees Sami getting up! Kevin DECKS Sami, goes out to mug Sami, and throw him into more barriers!

Kevin returns to the ring again but Apollo stomps him down! Apollo is furious as he gets Kevin up to throw haymakers. Sami wants in so Apollo tags him. Sami fires off hands on Kevin in return for everything, but lets off as the ref counts. Sami stands on Kevin’s head in the corner, then lets off at the count. Tag to Apollo, Kevin fights back but Sami gets a cheap shot in. Apollo CLUBS Kevin down, drags him back up and snap suplexes! Cover, ONE! Apollo gets Kevin up to whip him into the corner. Tag to Sami, Sami throws hands, Kevin hits back! Kevin CHOPS, Sami RAMS him into the corner! Sami digs Kevin in and tags in Apollo.

Apollo mugs Kevin, drags him up and around to whip to ropes. Kevin kicks back, dodges Apollo, and tags in Big E! Big E gets Apollo for an OVERHEAD suplex! Big E DECKS Sami, and OVERHEAD suplexes Apollo again! And then the side Belly2Belly! Big E runs side to side for the BIG SPLASH onto knees! Apollo gets up to whip Big E, but Big E escapes the Olympic Slam to hit the Urenag-E! Cover, TWO! Azeez looks worried and frustrated as Big E watches Apollo. Apollo gets up, Big E scoops him, but Apollo slips out to ENZIGURI! And STRAITJACKET GERMAN! Cover, TWO! Apollo is frustrated, and he gets Big E up again to whip, but Big E reverses!

Apollo is on the apron, Big E runs in but Apollo dodges the spear! Big E hits the ground and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown is back as Apollo stomps Big E in the corner. Tag to Sami and he stomps, then rains down rights and lefts! Sami hammers Big E, tags Apollo back in, and Apollo throws hands on Big E. The ref counts, Apollo lets off to soak up some heat. Apollo rushes back in but Big E hits back! Apollo gets a leg to keep Big E from reaching Kevin! The ref makes sure Sami holds the rope before Apollo makes the tag. The tag counts and Sami drops an elbow on Big E! Sami throws clubbing crossface forearms then wraps on a chinlock. Big E fights up and fights out but Sami drop toeholds to keep him down! Sami has a leg, drags Big E back, and anchors the leg to tag in Apollo!

Apollo stomps Big E, jumps for a big elbow drop, then covers, TWO! Apollo keeps cool, runs in and SPLASHES Big E in the corner! Apollo hops up, but Big E avoids the froggy-body! Both men crawl, hot tags to Sami and Kevin! Kevin tackles Sami and rains down fists! Sami scrambles to ropes but Kevin stomps him in the corner! Sami bails out, Kevin fires up and is on the apron, CANNONBALL! Direct hit then a BACK SENTON adds on! Kevin is red hot as he throws Sami back in the ring. Sami staggers up, Kevin runs in for a BIG corner clothesline! Kevin keeps moving, CORNER CANNONBALL! Kevin goes up top while Sami is down, SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Kevin seethes while Sami survives, but Kevin gets him up. Kevin puts Sami in a corner and CHOPS him! Kevin hoists Sami up top, climbs up to join him, but Sami CLUBS Kevin down! Sami adjusts, Kevin runs in under the jump! Tag to Apollo but Kevin SUPERKICKS him! Kevin whips Apollo, for a POP-UP POWERBOMB! Cover, Sami breaks it with a basement dropkick! The ref reprimands, Sami goes back to his corner and reaches for Apollo. Apollo crawls, as does Kevin, but Big E is off the corner. Sami tags in and goes after Kevin, but Kevin fights off the Half ‘n’ Half! Kevin elbows Sami, runs, but Sami reels him in for a HALF ‘N’ HALF! Cover, TWO!!

Sami is furious but he gets Kevin up, BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, Big E breaks it! Apollo gets in and waistlocks but Big E throws elbows. Big E runs to CLOBBER Apollo and himself out of the ring! Sami runs but Kevin dodges the kick to kick and STUNNER!! Cover, Kevin and Big E win!

Winners: Big E & Kevin Owens, by pinfall

It wasn’t a pin on the champ but it was good enough for Kevin! Azeez grabs a mic and the belt to give to Apollo and Apollo responds! “Stop, stop! Stop the music! Why are you celebrating, huh?! You did not beat me! It’s clear that the only reason you guys won the match is because I was burdened with this idiot, Sami Zayn!” If they think they can beat Apollo, how about we do this again next week? Big E & Kevin Owens VS Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez! Kevin and Big E figured it’d go that way, and dare them to do this NOW!

But then Sami fires up and gets mad at being called an idiot. Apollo is a fraud and a liar who set Sami up! Is Apollo in on this with Kevin? This is all to keep Sami away from HIS Intercontinental Championship! Apollo owes Sami an apology! He doesn’t get an apology, he gets a NIGERIAN NAIL! Apollo says Sami will never, EVER have the title again! Will Sami ever be able to speak again? And as for Kevin and Big E, will they ruin Azeez’s in-ring debut?

 

Rey Mysterio talks with Adam Pearce backstage.

The King of Lucha is furious over what happened last week, that much is clear. But what will Scrap Iron do for Rey to get back at Roman?

 

The Street Profits talk backstage.

But again, Chad Gable interrupts. Gable is here to apologize for Otis. Otis thought Gable wanted an apology, and Gable says that wasn’t the case at all. Otis just gets overprotective, that’s all. And that gets hard to control. But as a grand gesture, Gable got their tag match canceled. What? Why does Gable keep doing them favors they don’t want? The Profits know Gable can’t control Otis, but they can. So if Otis ever steps to them again, they’ll slap him back to the Jurassic period! T-Rex arms and everything! The Profits don’t know when to stop, do they? This is their problem! They never know when to shut their mouths!

So now they’ve gone and done it. They’ve talked themselves back into the match tonight! Who will it be? 1v1 with Gable, who is bringin’ the smoke? Dawks will get this. Ford says he’s got this. Nah nah nah, fam, Dawks insists. They gotta teach him a lesson. Ford says Gable is his. Then how about as a favor, Gable won’t even have Otis ringside. But that’s only if Dawkins stays back, too. That raises the stakes. You’ve got your match, G. Then there’s the match. And by the way, Otis is still angry. Is that a veiled threat that Otis won’t stay back?

 

Jey goes to Roman.

Roman stands up and wonders where Jimmy went. Jey explains that Jimmy is out there, mad and stuff. Jey isn’t sure what Jimmy’s talking about. But where is he? Jimmy said if Roman wants to see him, Roman’s got to go to the Usos’ locker room. Roman laughs. Their locker room? Yeah, the Usos have one. Wow, they have one. Roman doesn’t know why Jimmy is doing this to Jey. Why is Jimmy putting Jey in the middle, making Roman out to be the bad guy? Their locker room, huh? You sure that ain’t “Roman’s Cousin’s Locker room?” The Usos’ locker room, huh? Roman tells Jey to go tell Jimmy, that he’s coming… On his time.

 

Carmella VS Liv Morgan!

The (self-proclaimed) Most Beautiful Woman in the WWE swaggers about, having already beaten Liv once before. Will Liv make sure Carmella has to change that self-given title after this rematch?

SmackDown returns as Liv makes her entrance. The bell rings and Liv ROCKS Mella with a right hand then dribbles her off buckles! Liv stomps a mudhole in then lets off to climb up and stomp from above! Liv lets off again, but Mella again dodges ObLIVion! Mella drags Liv outside the ring, RAMS her into the apron then TOSSES Her into barriers! Mella tells commentary to tell the world how beautiful she is! Michael Cole adds “self-proclaimed” and Mella gets upset. Mella puts Liv in and puts Liv in the corner to choke her! Mella lets off to throw elbow after elbow! Mella ROCKS Liv, then struts around to soak up the heat.

Mella comes back, but Liv throws body shots! Mella CLUBS Liv down and is upset now. Mella rains down lefts and rights, then covers, TWO! Liv is still in this and Mella is frustrated. Mella drags Liv up, whips her to a corner, and then runs in, but Liv gets around for a WING SNAPPER and BOOT into buckles! Liv runs in, but into a BOOT from Mella! Mella grins as Liv sputters and gasps. Mella takes her time getting Liv up but Liv hits back! Mella hammers away and mocks Liv. Mella pie faces Liv against ropes and pisses Liv off! Liv blocks the Fabulous Kick to put Mella on ropes! OBLIVION!! Cover, Liv wins!!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall

Liv evens things up with Mella, blows a kiss then takes her leave. Mella is upset and tells Greg Hamilton to announce her as “still the Most Beautiful Woman in the WWE.” She always has to have the last word. But will her ego cost her down the line?

 

Bayley gets ready backstage.

She’s preparing for the big return of her talk show, but none of the cards her assistant hands her are good enough. Will the Role Model be ready for the Architect?

 

SmackDown presents an all new DING DONG, HELLO~!

Bayley walks in through her door, and she welcomes us back to “the hottest talk show on TV today.” Look, she upgraded the set! She brought her Hall of Bayley pics to help us fans feel better. But enough about her, on to her guest! This is a WWE Grand Slam Champion, just like Bayley, and he is “THE Drip God,” Seth Freakin’ Rollins! Rollins makes his entrance and is in a mix ‘n’ match suit of mauve and sky blue. Rollins even uses the door! Bayley is willing to let Rollins have the big fancy arm chair. Rollins thanks her and loves what she’s done with her set. Bayley says if Rollins needs anything to drink, just tell Michael Cole. HAH!

Bayley also thanks Rollins for using the door like a professional. Well of course! That’s what the door is for! Rollins thanks Bayley for having her on a proper show for a proper interview. And Rollins also adds that he’s a huge fan of Bayley. Aw stop! No, really! And as of late, Bayley has been on fire! Next level! What Bayley has done with Bianca Belair, putting her in her place time and time again! And what is it with kids these days? The lack of respect! They don’t care that Bayley is a top-tier, elite athlete. Bianca is that, too, but she still needs respect. And Rollins has no doubt that Bayley will mop the floor with “Belanca!”

But in all seriousness, he has to know. Last week, there was a moment that was a masterclass in mind games. Rollins cues up the clips and will have Bayley give him the secrets after. What Rollins is talking about is Bayley taking over the ThunderDome screams so that there were HUNDREDS of laughing Bayley faces! Bayley and Rollins both laugh in the present at how Bayley had the last laugh last week. That’s a knee slapping good time! Her face was everywhere! Where she at? EVERYWHERE~! Rollins catches his breath and might take Michael up on that drink. It feels good to laugh, though. Laughter is the best medicine! But if he thought that was good, and it was, wait until he sees this!

Bayley shows footage of Rollins attacking Cesaro three weeks ago! The multiple Curb Stomps to the point where Cesaro needed a stretcher! Rollins looks very serious and Bayley feels awkward. But then they both laugh! They laugh at Cesaro’s bad arm and how he never saw this coming. Wait, someone rings the bell/ Did someone order food? Did someone get them a surprise? Well this is Bayley’s show, she’s already done so much for him, Rollins will be a gentleman and get that for her. He answers the door and… IT’S CESARO! Cesaro DECKS Rollins then fires off hands! His arm is good, too, so he’s using both to THROW Rollins into Bayley’s pictures!

Cesaro RAMS Rollins into the door, tears up the suit, and Bayley can’t watch as Cesaro RAMS Rollins back through the door! The door falls, so Rollins gets thrown into the stool! Cesaro throws pieces of the set and now Rollins runs away! Bayley is stunned, Rollins’ suit is ruined, but the Swiss Superman is feeling great! Will Bayley need an even bigger upgrade to her set after tonight? Wait, wait, wait! Here comes BIANCA BELAIR! The EST has a mic and an outfit that is quite literally fire! Bianca tells Bayley, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” The tables have been turned, but who will get THE last laugh at Hell in a Cell?

 

Backstage interview with Rey Mysterio.

Rey says Dominik is hurt, and Roman Reigns viciously hurt him like he’s just some prey. It doesn’t matter how big and bad you are, you go after his son, Rey goes after you. Rey’s seen Dom in so much pain, and it is torture for Rey. Rey vowed on the day Dom was born that he would take care and protect his son. Last week, Rey failed that vow. Rey says Dom’s injuries aren’t an accident. They were caused by a man who claims to be all about family, yet won’t even think twice about destroying his own! Roman can do whatever he wants to his own family, but now you’re messing with the Mysterios! That is Rey’s son, his reason for being!

Rey says later tonight, he will be out in the ring. And he’s calling Roman out! If Roman dares to come out, Rey will show him what family looks like! Will vengeance be Rey’s to take? Or will he suffer even worse than what happened to Dominik?

 

Chad Gable VS Montez Ford!

This may seem like a downgrade from the huge tag team match The Street Profits wanted, but things could still get out of control! Will the Alpha Academy’s top (and only) teacher teach #KingTez a thing or two? Or will Ford use this to show Otis why he should drop out of the program?

SmackDown returns and Gable is already in the ring. Gable complains why Ford’s music was playing again but the bell rings. The two circle, tie up, and go around. Gable arm-drags Ford and shouts, “For the Academy!” Ford keeps cool and resets with Gable. They tie up again, go around, and Ford arm-drags Gable! Ford mockingly shots, “The Academy~!” Gable keeps cool and they reset again. Gable shoots in to get a waistlock and then trips Ford to float for a facelock. Ford fights up, Gable gets to a waistlock again but Ford switches. Gable switches, Ford switches, repeat, and Gable wrenches but Ford wrenches back.

Gable rolls, bridges, handsprings, and spins through to headlock, hammerlock then drop toehold! Gable floats to get the armlock and grinds Ford down. Dawkins watches closely backstage but Gable steps over to wrench the arm. Ford fights up, powers through to wrench Gable back for a headlock and takeover! Gable headscissors but Ford kips free. Roles reverses as Gable headlocks and takes over, only for Ford to headscissor. Gable kips free to arm-drag, but Ford arm-drags back! Ford has the armlock, Gable endures and goes for a leg. Ford grinds the arm, Gable fights up and powers Ford to ropes. The ref counts the break, Gable throws a body shot!

Gable puts Ford in a corner for stomps and haymakers, but lets off as the ref counts. Gable whips Ford corner to corner, Ford goes up and over and then arm-drags Gable back to the armlock! Gable gets up, whips free but Ford sees the drop down. Ford body scissors to a cradle, TWO! Gable facelocks, whips Ford, but Ford reverses. Things speed up and Gable catches Ford out of the air for an ANKLE LOCK! Ford flails but Gable grapevines! Ford fights up to bridge! TWO, and Gable gets away! Gable runs back in but is put out! Gable trips Ford to drag him out, but Ford boots him away! Ford leaps over Gable and LEAPS to CANNONBALL! Direct hit and both men are down as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Gable hits a BIG back suplex! Ford writhes and gets to the apron while Gable grins. Gable gets Ford up on the apron but Ford shoulders into him! Ford slingshots but into a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Gable gets Ford up and brings him around for another back suplex, but Ford lands on his feet! Ford tries to run but Gable clips him with a knee! Gable whips but Ford ducks and dodges, DOUBLE CROSSBODIES take both men down! Dawks rallies backstage but OTIS attacks him! The Dozer RAMS Dawks into a road case, and then RAMS him into another! The ringside deal didn’t include backstage!

Ford and Gable slowly rise, and Gable reels Ford in. Ford hits back with a haymaker, but Gable gives it back! Ford hits, Gable hits, and Ford gets the edge! Ford CLUBS away, whips Gable but Gable ducks, only to run into a SPINEBUSTER! Ford kips up and hits a STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Ford hurries to a corner, climbs up top, FROM THE HEAVENS!! Cover, TWO!!! Gable survives, and then OTIS attacks!

Winner: Montez Ford, by disqualification

Otis throws Ford out of the ring! And hauls him up to TOSS him over the announce desk! Michael and McAfee clear out as Otis drags Ford back up, to RAM him into steel steps! The Dozer is like a terminator as he puts Ford back in the ring! Otis scoops Ford for the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM! But he’s not done there! Otis climbs for a DOZER SPLASH!! Gable smiles, proud of his demolition machine demolishing the Profits! Dawkins hurries to help Ford but Otis easily throws him back out. Otis pushes Ford back to a drop zone, and Gable says they have to make him feel it! VADER BOMB!! Dawkins hurries back in and Gable has Otis stand down.

Referees and officials have the Alpha Academy leave, and SmackDown goes to break! What state will Ford be in when we return?

 

Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Rick Boogs VS King Corbin!

SmackDown returns with the King of Strong Style and Wolf King already in the ring, ready to fight again! Will this be what settles the score once and for all?

The bell rings and Boogs shreds and Nakamura BOOTS Corbin down! Nakamura gives Corbin Bad Vibrations while air guitaring with Boogs’ real guitar! Corbin fights up, but Nakamura ENZIGURIS! Nakamura hurries up the corner as Corbin crawls, and he hits a FLYING KNEE! Cover, TWO! Nakamura aims from the corner, “YAO~!” But Corbin catches him for DEEP SIX! Cover, TWO! Michael and McAfee admire the crown as Corbin POSTS Nakamura, then clubs away on him! The ref counts, Corbin lets off and he drags Nakamura out for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Corbin sits Nakamura up to DECK him, then gets him up to scoop.

Nakamura slips out, kicks but Corbin ducks to throw Nakamura down by his hair! But Nakamura rolls Corbin to a prawn hold! NAKAMURA WINS!

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall

But Corbin CLOBBERS Nakamura! Corbin and Boogs stare down, and they both rush for the crown! Corbin catches Boogs to SMACK him off the desk! Corbin picks the crown up, holds it high, but Nakamura snatches it! And Boogs TOSSES Corbin over the desk! Nakamura still has the crown and Boogs still rocks! Will Corbin ever get back his crown? Or will he just have to  move on and return to being a Baron?

 

Roman sits with Jey in his suite.

Is Roman ready to talk with Jimmy? Yeah. “Let’s go to your locker room.” Roman gets up, Jey and Paul Heyman follow, but will things be civil in the Usos’ room?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville have an update on Montez Ford.

It is doesn’t look good. But then Corbin storms in and asks how much longer they’re going to allow such disrespect to happen! Corbin is ordering Pearce to order Nakamura to return the crown! Well, the crown looks better on Nakamura. Is this a joke to them?! No, this is serious business. How about this? Instead of giving the crown back, Nakamura will put it on the line in a match. Yes, that works, because they’re even at 2-2. Pearce suggests the match settle it, #BattlefortheCrown! Corbin glares at Pearce, but that isn’t a no. Will we once and for all know who is the one true king of Friday Night SmackDown?

 

Jimmy paces in the Usos’ room.

The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy is in here, as Jey won it. Roman arrives and says it’s “quaint.” Heyman hands Roman the belt and Roman has Heyman excuse himself so the family can talk. “You see this? Do you understand-” NO! Jimmy doesn’t understand anything about the Universal Championship, nor does he care to! Jimmy doesn’t care what Roman wears, he cares about what is inside them! Jimmy cares about Jey AND Roman, but the truth is, Uce, Roman’s been doing this since they were kids. Roman has been working the system, using and abusing them. Jimmy’s watched as Roman’s been doing that a whole year, like it was nothing!

Jimmy says he was hurt deep to his soul. He doesn’t want to take Roman’s place. Jimmy knows Roman is a future hall of famer! But he isn’t going to be inducted as Roman Reigns. He’ll be inducted as the spoiled BITCH! Roman says this is what he was talking about. This is how Jey is being put in the middle. Jimmy says no one is doing that. This is Jey doing what Jey’s always been doing. Jimmy and Roman argue more and more, and Jey shouts for them both to chill out! Enough of this! Jey is tired of Jimmy AND Roman telling him what to do! Jey is out! Jimmy calls after Jey, but then says this is Roman’s fault! Now what are they going to do? Does Roman want to throw down?

Jimmy doesn’t care anymore! They can throw down! Let’s go, Uce! Roman doesn’t get what Jimmy is going on about. Jimmy wants to fight Roman? For what? What has Roman done? They aren’t little kids anymore! This isn’t about all that, this is about family! Jimmy should be with them! This is how they represent the family. Why would Jimmy do this to Jey? They’re twins, but who came out first? So Jimmy is older? Yeah? Then he should be looking out for Jey! Roman shouldn’t have to depend on Jey to reel Jimmy in! Jimmy should be the one Roman depends on! This isn’t about any one of them, but about ALL OF THEM!

And the only way to do that is to be them and be the best ever! That is all Roman knows, and all Roman’s ever known! So why would Jimmy do this to Jey? Why would he do that? How could he do that? Since day one? And Jimmy let Jey go? Jey busts his ass for a whole year now, and Jimmy just lets him go? For what? They’re brothers! And yet Jimmy does this to him. Make this right, Jimmy. For him, and for them. This is their family. Jimmy starts to see what Roman means, and heads out to find Jey. What elaborate chess game is Roman playing with his own flesh and blood?

 

Rey Mysterio heads to the ring!

Speaking of his own flesh and blood, the King of Lucha Libre is going through with calling the Tribal Chief out! Will Roman respond? Will Rey avenge what happened to Dominik?

SmackDown returns once more, and Rey says he is right here, waiting on Roman. Roman disrespected Rey’s family, so he’s waiting for Roman to respond. Rey frowns as nothing happens, and shouts for Roman to get out here. Roman’s music plays, and Roman appears, Paul Heyman following. Heyman hands Roman the Universal Championship to hold up for the pyro. Roman then hands the belt back to Heyman for him to hold up like a banner to show who Roman is as they go to ringside. Roman doesn’t seem to be taking Rey seriously despite entertaining this demand. Heyman again hands the belt over for the second round of pyro.

Rey takes a moment before he tells Roman, “This is what you wanted to hear. I acknowledge you, Roman.” WHAT?! “I acknowledge you… for the rat bastard that you are!” AHA! Rey says he also acknowledge Roman as the rat who put his hands on Rey’s son! Rey acknowledges Roman as a man he is willing to fight, even if he knows he’ll lose. And Rey also acknowledges Roman as the man that he wants to fight inside Hell in a Cell! Roman looks almost amused, but Rey says that now it’s Roman’s turn to acknowledge the challenge. Rey tosses the mic down at Roman’s feet, but Heyman hands Roman his personal mic.

“I acknowledge you. I acknowledge you as a father-” Rey has a KENDO STICK! And he smacks away on Roman! Roman blocks a shot to HEADBUTT Rey down! Roman is stinging but where did Rey even get that stick? Rey gets up, but Roman drags him up! Rey has the stick again and SMACKS away on Roman! And again! Roman gets up to TOSS Rey out of the ring! Roman is seething, he runs and SUPERMAN PUNCHES Rey back down! Roman clears the ring of the kendo stick and he paces around in a fury. Roman aims from a corner as Rey rises, “OOOAH~!” But DOMINIK SMACKS Roman with kendo stick!

Roman kicks Dom, reels him in, and gets him up! Roman POWERBOMBS Dominik OUT OF THE RING!! “I TOLD YOUUUU!!” Dominik writhes on the ramp but Rey SMACKS Roman again! Rey has Roman heading for the ramp, and then checks on Dom. Roman comes back to BOOT Rey down! Roman wants to do even worse but referees and officials stop him! Heyman also says it is best they leave it at this, and Roman accepts his Special Counsel’s advice. But what about Rey’s challenge for Hell in a Cell? Will Roman accept after all? And will he make Rey suffer for this act of defiance?


My Thoughts:

A very good SmackDown, but I still feel there was a lot left to be desired. There’s been quite a bit of copy and pasting here as there has been on Raw, such as with the Nakamura and Corbin story. I do like that we’re finally getting a match for the crown, but I feel like we could’ve gotten this a bit sooner. And them saying it’s just a regular match isn’t as fun, either. It should be something where Ricky Boogs won’t be a factor. Nakamura needs to prove he can still win on his own, using the Strong Style we all know he is king of. Then Liv VS Mella again so soon is a mixed back, but naturally Liv ties up the series. I feel like they’re going to keep going for a bit while the SmackDown Women’s title is busy.

Speaking of which, we got a great talk show segment with Bayley, Rollins, Cesaro and Bianca. Bayley and Rollins are really good at laughing, because I’m pretty sure all of that was forced. Cesaro had a great return and I love how dejected Bayley felt after her set was ruined. Bianca also has a good laugh, and I wonder if hers was real. We got a great tag match with the Intercontinental Championship scene, and it makes sense for Sami to take the loss. Azeez is finally getting in the ring for a match, he and Apollo will have a great match with Kevin and Big E, but I can’t be sure who wins. The winner on the Face team could be seen as the frontrunner for a title match, but again we see the shame in Aleister Black being released at this point.

I feel like it’s also a shame they downgraded the tag match to a singles match, but it was pretty clear Gable was going to divide and conquer the Profits when he gave that little line about Otis still being mad. Shaven Otis was quite the shock, and he got to just demolish the Profits. The tag match is still on the horizon, I can feel it, and that is going to be awesome. The Roman Reigns story was again the backbone of the show, and we got quite the character arc. Roman passive aggressively getting at Jey, Jimmy and Jey arguing, and then Jey actually standing up to both sides, followed by Roman turning things around on Jimmy, this is not quite the direction I expected for this, but I’m liking it.

I also liked Rey and Dom taking the fight to Roman, and of course Roman was going to beat the hell out of them in return. Though there were obviously edits and camera angles to hide how Dom didn’t get truly demolished from that powerbomb to outside the ring, that was just a great spot in general, something still only possible thanks to the ThunderDome. Roman VS Rey being in the Cell, title optional, is going to be big, but I was still hoping for something with Roman, Jimmy and Jey. Maybe with PPV’s moved around, we’ll get an actual one year anniversary moment in October with Extreme Rules, Roman VS Jimmy, or maybe even Roman VS Jimmy VS Jey should Jey not want to join either side.

My Score: 8.3/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 6.13.2024

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.

Athena’s Minion is still stacking up wins while stacking up bodies, but now she runs into the Subspace Sweetheart, who was also part of that Women’s World TV title tournament. Will Moone find a way to eclipse the Star(kz)? Or will Billie make her Overlord proud by going 11-0?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally. The two approach, Billie dodges the haymaker to BOOT Moone! Billie grins, whips Moone to a corner, then runs in.

Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

Moone put up a fight but Starkz still shines as she checks another one off the list. But will Billie be in for a fight when ROH goes to Arlington, Texas for Death Before Dishonor?

 

Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty VS Nick Comoroto & Jacoby Watts!

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks! Jacoby FLAPJACKS Lee off the apron, but then asks for a microphone? Jacoby says, “My friends, my followers, my faithful flock right here in Las Vegas, Nevada, praise be to HE! And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Fans chant “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” as Shane eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto shoves Shane, Shane shoves back, and they RAM shoulders!

Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

 

Trios Four Corner Survival: Lance Archer & The Righteous VS Action Andretti & Top Flight VS The Dark Order VS Dalton Castle & The Infantry!

Well, they’re in Las Vegas, so ROH sees last week’s Trios Triple Threat and raises it another trio! It’s a Dirty Dozen in Sin City, but who will hit the jackpot on these 25% odds?

The Peacock argues with the Murderhawk Monster, but then steps down as the teams sort out. In this kind of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at one time, and it is The Sight to See that starts against Alex Reynolds. The Code of Honor is upheld, but then Alex trips Action at the bell! Things speed up, Action hurdles but Alex leaps over! Things keep moving, Action bypasses, and he handsprings through Alex’s hip toss! Action snapmares Alex, then slides, but Alex ducks the Penalty Kick to roll Action up! ONE, and Action arm-drags Alex! Then JAPANESE ARM-DRAGS, then DROPKICKS! The fans cheer, and Action wrenches Alex’s arm.

Action brings Alex over, tags in Darius, and Darius takes the handoff to wrench. Darius whips, Alex reverses, but Darius turns arm-drag into backslide, ONE! Alex runs up, into the arm-drag! Darius has the armlock, then he wrenches. Tag to Dante, he CLUBS an arm and snapmares Alex down, for Darius to basement dropkick the arm! The fans cheer, Dante covers, ONE! Dante keeps on the arm, tags Action, and Action takes the handoff to snapmare, then ghost pin! TWO, but Action whips. Alex reverses, Action ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Alex ELBOWS Action down! The fans cheer, and Alex bumps Action off buckles to tag Silver.

Silver tags Uno, the fans cheer and Dark Order whips Uno in to SPLASH Action! Uno then feeds Action to a double hip toss, cradle and DOUBLE FACEBUSTER! Alex & Uno get Action up, then Silver hops on! The Dark Order flexes while holding Action down, and then Silver & Reynolds step away for Uno to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Uno keeps on Action, ROCKS him with a right, then whips him to ropes.

Uno shoves again, Bravo gets around again, full nelson and spin, but Uno shouts “STOP~!” Then he ROCKS Bravo with a right! The fans fire up, Uno whips, but Bravo jukes and dodges, mule kick to the leg! Tag to Captain Shawn Dean and he STEP-IN KNEE STRIKES Uno down! Reynolds runs up, The Infantry dodges and Castle is in, to get around and SLAM him! The fans fire up as The Infantry and Castle pose together. But then Archer & The Righteous attack! The ref reprimands but they knock down The Infantry as well as Castle, and even the rest of The Dark Order! Vincent feeds Uno to Dutch for the SCRAPBUSTER!

Top Flight storms in but Archer BOOTS Darius, SLAMS Dante, then sends Darius to the SCRAPBUSTER! Action runs up but into a SIDEWALK SLAM! Archer hauls Bravo up into a dragon sleeper but Dean CLUBS him! Archer just frowns, and then he grabs Dean by the neck! CHOKE SLAM DDT COMBO! The fans fire up, and Vinnie snaps his fingers. SLIDING FLATLINER on Uno! Vinnie tags himself in off Uno, then runs up on Dean. Dean fires body shots and forearms, then whips. Vinnie reverses, both men run, and Vinnie CLOBBERS Dean! Vinnie drags Dean up and over, bumps him off buckles and fires body shots!

Tag to Dutch and Dutch UPPERCUTS Dean! Castle protests but Archer smothers Dean! Dutch smiles and snaps his suspenders, before running in, into a BOOT! Dean ELBOWS Vinnie, ELBOWS Archer, dodges Dutch, hot tag to Castle! The fans fire up for The Peacock as he blocks a shot and BACK ELBOWS Dutch! Castle catches Alex to EXPLODER! Castle BLASTS Archer off the apron, catches Dante, and hits an EXPLODER! Darius runs up, into an EXPLODER! Silver runs up, into an EXPLODER! Action runs in, EXPLODER! Vegas is fired up for Castle, Dutch runs up, but into a waistlock. Dutch elbows free, Castle falls back to the corner.

Dutch runs in, Castle dodges, and The Infantry DOUBLE GAMANGIRI! Dutch staggers, Castle BODY SHOTS! Bravo runs up to SCISSOR KICK! Dean is up top, DIVING SPLASH! Castle runs up, builds up power, and then SPLASHES down! Triple cover, but Dante and Alex break it! Dante hurries to his corner, tags in off Dutch, but Alex does the same with Castle. Alex and Dante shove each other, then throw forearms! Darius and Uno get in but they each get a forearm! Then Dante and Alex throw hands again! Silver and Action try, but Dante and Alex DECK them! The brawl is back on, Archer and Dutch get in!

Alex and Dante each hit Archer and Dutch, but they’re much bigger than the others! Archer choke grips Alex, Dutch choke grips Dante! But Uno & Action DOUBLE SUPERKICK Dutch! They DUMP Archer out, but Archer grabs Uno! Action SUPERKICKS Archer down! The Righteous regroups outside, some of the others head that way, and Alex swings on Action. Action dodges, SOBATS, then reels Alex in. Action suplexes, Alex slips free, and Alex waistlocks. Action drops down, slips under, mule kicks then front kicks! Alex ducks the roundhouse but not the ENZIGIRI! But then Silver SUPERKICKS Action!

Silver torture racks and spins, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Dean gets Silver for a full nelson, then ROLLING ELBOW! Darius runs up, blocks a kick and hits a FISHERMAN BUSTER! Castle returns to short arm LARIAT, KNEE and DDT! Darius bails out, Vinnie gets in, SIDE EFFECT! Bravo gets Vinnie in a wrench and clinch, SIDEWINDER! Uno runs up, blocks a boot, and he hands that to the ref so he can NECKBREAKER! The fans are thunderous, Dante gets in, and he hurdles Uno! Uno ends up outside, The Righteous mugs him!

Silver & Reynolds coordinate, they’re starting up that WOMBO COMBO!! Bridging cover, but Darius COMPLETE SHOTS Alex! Action breaks the pin, then he and Darius get Alex up! DOUBLE URENAGE! Darius covers, TOP FLIGHT WINS!

Winners: Action Andretti & Top Flight, by pinfall

It was fast ‘n’ furious between all four teams, and the fastest team won out! Will Action, Darius & Dante make good on some golden tickets to Arlington?

 

Six Woman Tag: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante VS Abadon, Lady Frost & Leyla Hirsch!

The Problem is already hard to solve, and now she’s got British Titanium and the Cuban Diamond by her side! Will this trio be unbreakable? Or will they have some trouble with the LEGIT trio standing against them?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though barely, and the trios sort out. Leyla starts against Marina and the fans rally up. The two circle, tie up, and Leyla waistlocks to drag Marina down. Marina fights up, Leyla has a leg, but Marina’s sturdy, so Leyla lets off. They reset, knuckle lock, and Marina slips around to trip Leyla. Marina ties the legs up, floats to a headlock, but Leyla slips out the back to a waistlock. They go around, Leyla is a backpack as Marina stands up. Marina leans forward to dump Leyla off, but Leyla holds on to drag Marina down into body scissors! Marina fights free and the fans cheer the technical exchange.

The two reset and go again. Marina trips Leyla to a cover, ONE! Leyla goes to sweep but Marina jumps over! Marina pats little Leyla on the head, but that pisses Leyla off! Leyla trips Marina, rains down forearms, then she gets around to facelock. Leyla brings Marina over, Abadon tags in, and the fans fire up as the two double whip. Drop toehold then SENTON! Abadon hurries to cover, TWO! Abadon keeps Marina from her team and rains down fists! Marina gets free, goes for a leg but Abadon slips away. Abadon goes for an arm, wrenches and wristlocks, but Marina rolls. Abadon wrangles her, Marina fights up and rolls to her feet.

Abadon wrangles Marina again, using power to get the better of the technician. And then Abadon BITES Marina’s arm! The ref reprimands and Marina breaks free! Thankfully Marina’s gear has sleeves. Abadon backs off and Frost tags in. Marina tags Diamante, and these two run up. Frost wheelbarrows to arm-drag, then dodges Diamante to handspring and RANA! Diamante ends up in the corner,. Frost tags Abadon then CHOPS Diamante. Abadon throws hands, brings Diamante around, and ROCKS her with forearm after forearm! Diamante kicks low but Abadon HELL STABS! Abadon whips, Diamante reverses, and Marina gets a cheap shot in!

Abadon shrieks at Marina, but Diamante CLUBS Abadon down! Diamante stomps a mudhole into Abadon, lets off as the ref counts, and then tags Windsor. Windsor fires off hands on Abadon, then brings her around to bump Abadon off buckles. Windsor whips corner to corner, runs up, but into a BOOT! Windsor just huffs ‘n’ puffs and comes back! Windsor blocks boots, puts Abadon in ropes, and DRAPING NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Windsor CLUBS Abadon again and again, then drags her up. Tag to Marina, then snapmare for Abadon. Marina uses Windsor as a weapon, scoop SLAM on the legs!

Abadon writhes, Windsor throws down hands and Marina sucker punches Leyla! The ref keeps Leyla back, letting Windsor and Diamante stomp Abadon! Then Windsor uses Diamante as a weapon, HIP TOSS SENTON! Diamante hurries away before the ref sees, and Windsor tags Marina. Marina tags Diamante, they drag Abadon, and then Marina uses Diamante as a weapon, scoop SLAM on Abadon’s chest! Diamante eggs Leyla & Frost on, but Abadon sits up like a certain Deadman! Abadon checks her neck, dodges Diamante, then tags Frost! Frost fires up as she rallies on Daimante! ELBOW, then a tilt-o-whirl into the sunset flip! ONE, but Frost BUZZSAWS!

The fans fire up with Frost and she runs to the corner. GAMANGIRI! Diamante sits down, Frost goes corner to corner, handspring CANNONBALL! The fans fire up again and Frost covers, TWO! Diamante stays in this but Frost stays on her with a wrench. Tag to Leyla and Frost snapmares Diamante. Diamante ducks the buzzsaw, but not the HEEL KICK! Leyla then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, Windsor & Marina break it! Frost ROUNDHOUSES Marina! Frost goes out but Marina SWEEPS the legs! Windsor tags in, Leyla DECKS Marina, but then sees Windsor waiting! Leyla takes a swing, but into the RIGHT ANGLE SLAM!

Windsor hurries to cover, but Abadon breaks it! Diamante SPEARS Abadon! Windsor hauls Leyla up, but Leyla wrenches to SAIDO! Leyla puts Windsor in the drop zone, then goes up, but Diamante distracts the ref so Marina can YANK Leyla down! SHINING WINDSOR! And then the fisherman and a twist, LIBERTINE DRIVER! Cover, Windsor’s team wins!

Winners: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante, by pinfall

Powerful teamwork from this trio, and we know Windsor gets a big match tomorrow night on AEW Rampage against Toni Storm. Will Iron Will Windsor steal the spotlight from the Leading Lady this close to Forbidden Door? Will all three of these women be primed for title opportunities as we head for Death Before Dishonor and beyond?

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up.

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10
