PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Money in the Bank Kickoff Show!

Join Kayla Braxton, Booker T, Jerry “The King” Lawler, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, “birthday boy” Peter Rosenberg, and the live crowd, in discussing, analyzing and predicting all the action set for this great return to fans at a WWE PPV!

 

Sonya Deville joins the panel.

JBL is upset Rosenberg didn’t offer her a chair but she points out her standing and Rosenberg sitting are the same height. Kayla points out that when it comes to Women’s MITB, every woman that’s cashed in, they win the title. 100% success rate, and every woman who has held the briefcase have become stars. And the winner this year could be THE face of the Women’s Division soon enough. Sonya Deville was involved in a Women’s MITB helping Mandy Rose, but Bayley took them both down. But this is a point that anything can happen tonight. We’ve seen Liv Morgan fight her way in, Carmella was in but got her title match before, anything can happen.

Everything is on the line, Sonya wants to see the women step up, she is hoping Liv shows us something tonight. Booker says that he never won MITB either. It is about sacrifice, the person wanting it most wins. Liv has been putting in work, she might win. Liv is here via video chat and Kayla notes this is Liv’s first MITB ever. What’s going in her head right though? She is so excited! This is the biggest night of her career and she can’t wait to win. Peter asks that with what we saw on an electric Friday night, the fans say, “You Deserve It!” What does that mean to her?

That was so unexpected, but it meant more to her than anything. Liv loves this more than anything ever in her life. She cannot get this feeling anywhere else, so having that love is amazing. Booker says not to put the carriage before the horse, is she too caught up thinking she’s just getting this? She has to have eyes on the back of her head and much more. Liv says she’ll risk it all, there is nothing she won’t do to make sure she’s at the top of the ladder with the briefcase in hand. She has no other option but to win! They all like that and they wish her luck. King knows the song is “I Love a Loser When They Cry,” but he loves a winner when they cry. And if Liv wins, the emotions will pour forth.

The kickoff show returns and Sonya sticks around to talk the Raw Women’s’ Championship. Who does she feel has the upper hand here? Charlotte Flair, one of the most decorated women in WWE, but Rhea Ripley has earned her spot. Sonya says this is about mental strengths and weaknesses. Rhea will take and take and play by the rules for as long as she can, but then she’ll bring out the Nightmare. That is the point to where Charlotte has pushed rhea, and that’s who we see tonight. That is Peter’s concern. Is Rhea good? A nightmare? Caught in Charlotte’s game as the Dirtiest Player in the Game’s daughter? JBL agrees, Rhea is trying to beat Charlotte at her own game, but that’ snot what you do in a match like this.

Kayla knows Charlotte sees something of herself in Rhea, but Booker says Rhea is a work in progress. There will always be someone trying to take your spot, and the Ripper wants to rip Charlotte’s spot away from her. King says how can Booker call the champ a WIP? Well you always get better. Two things you don’t do: don’t let the dog guard the food, and don’t play games with The Queen. Sonya relates to Rhea, she sees the true Rhea. You can get pushed and pushed only so far. Even a nice person can only take things for so long before ripping off the mask and becomes the most passionate fighter. A quick poll: King says Queen Charlotte; Booker says Charlotte; JBL says Charlotte, too; Peter says don’t sleep on The Ripper, Rhea is a top star, she will retain.

Another title from Raw is the tag team titles, and the Viking Raiders get their shot at AJ Styles & Omos. Ivar pinned Styles last Monday, but Omos won his singles debut against Erik. The titles are on the line tonight, and there’s a lot of seize in the ring, not necessarily including Styles. Peter remembers the Great Khali being a dominate force on size and strength, what do you do with such a big man? JBL says you try to take them out of their game, but doubts the Vikings can do that. Booker knows Omos is strong, big, and hungry. You don’t really mess with that guy, especially with a veteran mentor like Styles. King thinks to call MIB, this guy might be an alien.

But King talks to Styles insulting the Viking Raiders. Styles has said they’re stinky barbarians, and King admits they could use a bath. But the Raiders have been away from these titles the better part of a year, they’re hungry. JBL says Styles is the greatest of this era, Omos is a great up-and-comer, but the Raiders are already a great tag team. This could be an instant classic. Quick poll: King says Styles & Omos, as does Booker and JBL; Peter feels that as a fellow former (24/7) champion, he has no choice but to say the champs retain. Will it be as phenomenal as this sweep when Styles & Omos take on Erik & Ivar 2v2?

 

The Miz and John Morrison crash the panel!

Fans fire up as the Most Must-See duo arrives! Wet guys are the best guys! Get some Drip Stick! Careful, you’re getting Booker’s suit wet. Fans chant for “Johnny Drip Drip!” and Miz is fired up. Booker has no idea what’s going on. Is Miz okay? Yeah, he’s gotta be here for Morrison to get the MITB contract. Well what kind of advice as one of the most decorated MITB winners given to Morrison? Morrison doesn’t need advice, he’s been preparing for this his whole career! MITB changes your whole career, Miz got to go to the WrestleMania main event, so Morrison is doing that tonight! Fans chant, “Miz is Awesome!” and that fires Miz up more.

Any nerves, Johnny Drip Drip? Of course! When you stop getting nervous, you stop caring! Morrison isn’t just hungry, he’s thirsty, for that case! Well let’s go to ringside for the kickoff match! Miz and Morrison head out to prepare, will Morrison be dripping with the MITB briefcase?

Backstage interview with Drew McIntyre.

The Scottish Warrior is getting ready, but what will it take to win in that stacked Men’s MITB match? Does something seem different to Kevin? McIntyre can’t put his finger on it. Oh wait! Fort Worth, can he get some noise? He does! Kevin, McIntyre is in the position not of wanting to win, but having to win. Last time, McIntyre won the Royal Rumble as fans lost their minds! McIntyre slayed the Beast, Brock Lesnar, and is very proud of being the world champion in the ThunderDome. But he speaks for everyone, if we never go back to ThunderDome, we’ll all be very happy. Being in front of live fans as champion didn’t work out that way, so this is his absolute last chance.

Everyone loves story time, right? Well here’s a story: Tonight in Fort Worth, McIntyre walks in, breaks bones, kicks heads off, climbs a ladder and becomes the NEW Mr. Money in the Bank! Will that story come true, happy ending and all? Or will one of the other seven men get lucky instead?

The wrath of the All Mighty rips Kofi Kingston apart, and the gold stays where it is! Is this also a message that whoever is Mr. MITB should not even consider Lashley a target?

 

Raw Women’s Championship: Rhea Ripley VS Charlotte Flair!

The Nightmare says anything the Queen can do, she can do better. Charlotte likes the spirit, but she is looking to also crush that spirit and get back to the throne. Will Rhea beat Charlotte at her own game? Or will the Queen put the champion in checkmate?

Matt Riddle talks with Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs.

The Bro talks with his fellow MITB entrant and the rockin’ bard. Riddle digs Boogs’ vibe and can totally shred. He’s like a modern day Shreddy Kruger. Boogs digs that reference, and says he and #Kingsuke dig Riddle’s vibe, too. Boogs wishes Riddle luck, but Riddle wishes Nakamura luck, too. Riddle just wishes his best bro, Randy Orton, was here. Riddle says Orton is one of Boogs’ biggest fans. REALLY!? Well, okay, Orton’s never said that but he and Riddle are best buds so Riddle can tell. Riddle imagines Orton as a king! King Randy! Huge snake with a crown! And then no one would wear pants, because Orton hates pants.

Riddle asks Boogs a favor before they all go out there. Can he play Randy Orton’s theme song? Uh… Boogs has never played it before, so he isn’t so sure. JUST KIDDING! It’s the best song ever! Riddle sings the opening lyrics, Boogs does a cover of Voices, Nakamura rolls his eyes, but he does do the Orton pose. And then Kevin Owens walks in. Kevin has no idea what he’s witnessing, so he just heads to the stage.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and that goes for the BIGGEST moment in Big E’s WWE career! Big E wins this contract the very first time he gets at it, and now things could be changing BIG time!

 

Seth Rollins is backstage, very upset.

The Architect refuses to accept this loss, and Kevin Patrick comes by to interview him. It was a valiant effort- Effort? EFFORT?! That wasn’t good enough!! This was Rollins’ destiny! DESTINY! He should be Universal Champion, but it got stolen from him! He was robbed! Rollins shouldn’t have needed to be in the MITB match in the first place! He should’ve been in the main event tonight! But Edge stole that from Rollins…! Rollins says, “Change,” over and over and over, and then says he needs a new plan. Rollins says whoever wins tonight, he’s not waiting. “I’m next in line. I’M NEXT IN LINE!!” If that’s the case, then will it be Tribal Chief or Rated R Superstar Rollins steps to?

 

WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman VS Edge!

The Reigns-ing, Defending, Undisputed, (Mostly) Uncontroverted Universal Heavyweight Champion, The End All Be All, Center of the WWE Universe, THE Main Event of ALL Sports Entertainment… fears Edge! Roman will never admit it, it is not on a win-loss record, but Roman has tapped out to Edge’s brutal crossface every single time Edge clamps it on! The Tribal Chief refuses to accept the truth, but will the Rated R Superstar make Roman acknowledge him?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and the 1v1 Edge was refused at WrestleMania 37 finally happens in Fort Worth!

Fans are fired up already as Roman and Edge stare down. They slowly approach, Roman talks some trash, fans duel and that annoys Roman because it should just be about him. Edge just soaks it all in as he and Roman circle. They tie up, go around, and Roman powers Edge to a corner. The ref calls for a ropebreak, Roman lets off with a pie face. Edge keeps his cool as fans boo and Roman talks smack. Edge and Roman circle again, fans fire up again, and they tie up again. Edge powers Roman back to a corner now, and then Edge returns the pie face! Roman seethes but stays focused as he and Edge reset. Fans are strongly behind Edge now and that annoys Roman more.

Roman and Edge tie up again, Edge waistlocks but Roman works on an escape. Edge gets Roman on the mat, rear mounts, and slaps him around! Roman seethes as Edge says, “I can do this all day.” Edge and Roman circle again, they tie up again, and Edge waistlocks to a headlock. Roman powers out and runs Edge over with a shoulder! Edge bails out and Roman talks a lot of trash. Fans are fired up both ways as a ring count begins. Edge takes his time, the count is 8 of 10 when he returns. Then Edge bails right back out to give himself another 10 count. Edge returns at 6 this time, and fans rally as Edge and Roman circle yet again.

They tie up, Edge wrenches, hits elbow breaker after elbow breaker, then an ARM JAMMER! Edge wrenches again, but Roman ROCKS him with a right! Roman gets Edge up to headbutt him, then CLUBS him in the corner. Roman gets Edge up again, bumps him off buckles, then digs his palm into Edge’s face before he gives those point-blank lariats! The ref counts, Roman lets off, but then comes back. Edge blocks a lariat to wrap the arm around ropes! Edge CLUBS the arm, and his target is clear! Edge POSTS Roman, then takes him to the other corner to POST him again! Edge goes after the arm and gets Roman down but Roman bails out fast! No crossface just yet!

Roman paces, using the count to his advantage now. Heyman coaches Roman as we pass 5 of 10, and then Roman gets in at 7. Heyman says to teach Edge what fear is, but Edge forearms Roman! Roman forearms back, Edge forearms again! They go back and forth, Roman gets the edge but Edge BOOTS the arm! Edge runs to KNEE Roman out of the ring! Roman gets up but Edge comes in around the way, only to run into a SAMOAN DROP! The ring count climbs again, we’re at 5 of 10 as Roman gets up. Roman gets in at 6, then exits at 8 to go after Edge. Roman POSTS Edge, then goes back into the ring. Now Roman will let the count take care of Edge!

Edge sits up at 6 of 10, gets up at 8, and slides in at 9! Roman is annoyed and he stomps Edge down. Roman gets Edge up, knees him in the side, then stomps a mudhole into him at the corner. The ref counts, Roman digs his boot in, but lets off at 4. Roman glares at the ref as the ref reprimands him, but Roman gets Edge up to throw him back out. Roman follows, bumps Edge off steel steps, then drags him up again just to smack him back off the steps. Roman puts Edge in, covers, TWO! Roman is furious so he rains down forearms on Edge! Edge can’t even get a guard up as Roman throws headbutts! Fans rally and duel again as Roman lets off.

Roman talks trash as he paces around, and he drags Edge. “You’re trying to take my money, huh?” Roman POSTS Edge! Fans duel harder than ever and Roman can’t believe fans are booing him when he’s winning! Roman gets Edge out of the corner, makes fans look at him, and says, “This is what happens when you get in here with the Head of the Table!” Roman POSTS Edge again! Fans boo as Roman swaggers around, then he snap suplexes Edge! Cover, TWO! Roman clamps on the inverted cravat to crank Edge’s neck! Edge endures as Roman leans all his weight on him. Fans rally up, Edge pries at the hold, and he fights up off the mat!

Roman tells Edge not to do this, but Edge pries the hold open! Roman just shifts to a sleeper! Roman thrashes Edge down to the mat, and Roman says, “I could lay on this sumbish all night long!” Roman squeezes tight but Edge still endures. Fans rally up, Roman throws his weight down on Edge, and Edge starts to turn red in the face. Roman doesn’t want fans to clap but they clap! They rally up, Edge gets a second wind, and the fans fire up! Edge stands, throws body shots and is free! Edge runs but into an uppercut! Edge goes down and ends up on ropes! Roman goes out to the apron, takes his time going down the steps, and builds speed to DRIVE-BY DROPKICK! “OH YESSIR!”

Roman pushes Edge into the corner, covers, TWO! Edge is still in this and Roman is growing frustrated. Roman goes to a corner as Edge flounders his way to the other, and Roman locks ‘n’ loads! Roman aims at Edge as he stands, SUPERMAN- NO! Edge ducks to backslide! TWO!! DOUBLE BOOTS take both men down! And yet Heyman is the one stunned! Fans fire up again as Edge and Roman stir.

Edge rebounds to give another, but so does Roman!

Edge, Roman, Edge, Roman, then Roman gets the edge on Edge again! Edge dodges the uppercut to get an EDGE-O-MATIC!! Cover, TWO!! Edge sighs and gets back to ropes. Fans are thunderous as Edge rises, and he snarls as he looks at Roman. Roman staggers up, Edge CLOBBERS him! Roman boots from a corner, runs, but Edge hits a FLAPJACK! Then an IMPALER!! Cover, TWO!! Roman survives #Edge-ecution, and fans are hoping these two “Fight Forever!” at this rate. But someone has to win, Edge gets up and stalks Roman to a corner.

Edge climbs up behind Roman, but Roman elbows Edge down! Edge is on the apron, Roman catches his breath but Edge goes up to SMACK Roman off the post! Roman ends up in a Tree of Woe!

The arm is caught, Roman shows fear in his eyes again! Roman scoots, reaches, and gets the ROPEBREAK!

Edge holds until the ref counts 4, and both men are down again. Edge slithers to a corner as he watches Roman. Roman slowly rises, Edge wants his target! Edge runs in, SPE- NO! GUILLOTINE!! Roman catches the Spear but Edge still RAMS Roman into a corner! Roman lets go, but then just shifts to the other arm! Roman cranks back on the Guillotine but Edge endures! Edge reaches, but he’s turning red again! Edge gets a third wind and he powers Roman OUT of the ring! They tumble and hit the floor and a ring count begins. Roman and Edge stir as we reach 5 of 10.

Edge sits up as fans are electric! Edge stands, brings Roman up, reels him in, but Roman resists the DDT! Roman ROCKS Edge with an uppercut, then runs, SPUERMAN PUNCH!

But Edge falls into the ref! Heyman points that out to Roman, and they both look at each other. Roman looks back at the downed ref, and now the door is wide open! Roman goes out of the ring, looks at what’s around, and takes the timekeeper’s chair away. Roman breaks off the crossbar, just as he did Friday, and as Edge has done time and again! Roman brings the crossbar to the ring, saying he’s going to teach Edge a lesson about fear! Fans boo as Roman creeps up on Edge. Roman tells fans to shut up but they boo harder. Roman gets Edge, but Edge holds off the crossbar! Edge throws elbows, haymakers, and then HEADBUTTS!! SO MANY HEADBUTTS!!

Heyman tries to shout to the WWE officials and medics helping the ref about this but they leave as Edge puts on THE CROSSBAR CROSSFACE!!! Roman’s eyes are full of fear again as his mouth is full of metal again! But here come the USOS! But behind the Usos are the Mysterios! Jimmy & Jey get in but are pulled right back out by Rey & Dom! Revenge for the tag titles as Dom SEATED SENTONS Jimmy and Rey RANAS Jey! The Mysterios run the Usos off, Roman is fading!! If only there was a ref! But then Roman gets a second wind, but wait, something’s coming in from the crowd! It’s ROLLISN! SUPERKICK to Edge!! The Architect wants next, but why did he stop Edge?!

Rollins storms off, having gotten some payback on Edge. Roman crawls, Edge stirs, but there’s still no ref to call anything! Roman says he never gives up! The Bloodline owns everything! “I’ve got the juice!” Roman fires himself up as fans boo, and Roman lets out the battle cry, “OOOAAH~!” Roman runs in, but Edge SPEARS him first!!! Cover but where’s a REF?!?! This is a five count! Here’s a ref, the count now, TWO!??!! This was Edge’s if not for Rollins!!

Edge BOOTS Rollins, Roman SPEARS Edge!! Cover, Roman wins!!!

Winner: Roman Reigns, by pinfall (still WWE Universal Champion)

And it is all thanks to the Architect!! Rollins may have wanted next, but he made sure it wasn’t the Rated R Superstar! Roman draws ever closer to one full year as champion, is he going to make it there now?

And then Rollins goes after Edge to vent with furious fists! Fans boo as Rollins stomps away, then Rollins and Roman lock eyes. Rollins tells Roman that this is all thanks to him! This isn’t Roman’s show! But then Edge goes after Rollins! Edge throws Rollins out of the ring, then into barriers! And then over barriers! And then they brawl in front of the fans! They fight to the back and Roman finally gets to celebrate in the ring. Heyman fetches a mic for Roman and hands it over. Fans boo as Roman looks to address the WWE Universe. “Now the whole world can acknowledge me!” BUT WAIT! IS THAT JOHN CENA?!?!

Fort Worth practically explodes as Cena is back! Cena says he missed us all, and he gets in the ring! Cena gets to run the ropes and throw his hat again for the first time in over a year! Roman and Heyman are the only ones not happy about this. Cena steps closer, and closer, and looks at the Universal Championship. Then with his hand gesture says, “You Can’t See Me!” Fans are thunderous for the return of the 16 time world champion, but is he planning on making the 17th universal?


My Thoughts:

What! A! Night! Alright, not everything was perfect, and there was an entire rant I had in real-life about the Peacock having those damn technical difficulties as the Men’s MITB was about to start. But I can’t hold the errors of that overrated streaming service against the WWE, this show was awesome. And you know it’s awesome when the kickoff match gets a “This is Awesome!” chant. The Usos VS Mysterios was great stuff, and the Mysterious had an amazing entrance with the “portal,” but I am utterly shocked that the Usos won. I thought Jimmy’s DUI was going to get in the way, but there was that oddly humorous little allusion to it when Roman was talking with the Usos. Maybe there’s something going on that’s under wraps since it is technically a personal issue.

The Women’s MITB opening was a great move, because it teased a cash-in, though not getting one tonight was a bummer. It was a great match, and I like that the others buried Alexa under ladders to keep her down. Though, it was also like the perfect set-up to her using Fiend powers to teleport and be in the ring. Fans were really behind Liv, but I just knew from Friday that the math wasn’t in her favor anymore. Still, she seemed almost legitimately emotional in the kickoff and after the match, you do have to feel for her. But Nikki winning it by simply getting up and over everyone was the most creative way to win any ladder match period. Nikki’s been on a great roll, even if it was all quick pin wins, and she is going to have a lot of fun with that briefcase.

Speaking of that women’s title match, Rhea VS Charlotte here might’ve topped their WrestleMania 36 match. Charlotte still has Rhea’s number and wins again, but that’s part of why I was hoping for some kind of same night cash-in from Ms. MITB. I suppose Charlotte will build to a SummerSlam match with someone while Nikki just waits in the background. With pieces moving all over the place because Vince is impulsive, no Mandy & Dana to challenge Natty & Tamina, and that also makes you wonder what Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler are going to do. I honestly feel like this could be an opening for Shayna to get back up after the Lily debacle, but Alexa could also move up, eventually pitting her and Nikki against each other again.

The Raw Tag Team Championship match was very good, Omos is really coming into his own. He isn’t just a big guy who lumbers around and relies too much on how he’s the big guy, he is actually doing some stuff in there. For that reason, it’s why he and Styles are champions at all, and they get a great win over the Viking Raiders. Then, I was a little surprised the world title went before the men’s MITB, I would’ve thought they’d want maximum MITB tease, but guess they figured to put that more on the Universal title. At the same time, I don’t think we’ve ever gotten a case where on MITB PPV night, a (Heel) champion insisted they go before the respective MITB match to avoid a cash-in.

This wasn’t that, and Lashley VS Kofi was brutal because Lashley was destroying Kofi. I feel like it would’ve been a better match if, y’know, Kofi got to give Lashley a fight. Yes, it was pretty apparent from the math that Lashley was winning, but why is it that Kofi was only strong during KofiMania at WrestleMania 35? Lesnar squashes him, Kofi gets more tag titles, but then can’t even put a dent in Lashley tonight. But we got an awesome Men’s MITB to make up for some of that. The lead in with Boogs and Riddle was great, I loved that Rollins and Morrison first argued then teamed up over their shared dripocity, and naturally, Mahal and his guys keep McIntyre out of the running.

There was a lot of great innovation in the Men’s MITB, some slightly really rough stuff, but Ricochet got to do some amazing stuff, too. Big E winning is amazing, and apparently there are rumors of a New Day/unicorn design for the briefcase already in the works so that is great. When a superstar gets to customize the briefcase, you know something special- Well, okay, Damien Sandow got to customize his briefcase and then he got buried like a chump by Cena. But for the most part, a custom briefcase is a sign of big things so hopefully that’s how it is for Big E.

Then the Universal Championship was another epic from Roman and Edge, a lot of great story beats borrowed from previous encounters, but they did one sloppy ass job with that ref bump. And also getting a new ref out there, but I suppose how else was “The Deal” supposed to be used? Can’t crossbar crossface someone in a normal match, that’s a DQ, so the WWE had to look like a bungling management system for a minute to make it work. I like that the Usos were thwarted by the Mysterios, and I hope we get a rematch of those two on the way to SummerSlam, if not AT SummerSlam.

Rollins costing Edge was a given but it does contradict with how he said he didn’t care. He obviously did care, he didn’t want Edge winning. Roman wins, Edge and Rollins fight, and those two will go on a detour for SummerSlam so that JOHN CENA can be Roman’s next opponent! A little disappointed we never got “Cena breaks out of Firefly Funhouse” as a story arc, but screw it, WWE isn’t even using Fiend right now because they’ve hit another Vince creativity anomaly or something. But I think there was continuity in that the outfit Cena wore tonight was the same one he wore in the Firefly Funhouse Match, so that’s something.

Roman VS Cena 2 for SummerSlam is going to be great, and it’s already a great story: Roman’s dominance as Tribal Chief or Cena’s historic 17th top title reign, something’s gotta give.

My Score: 9.5/10

The Nova Fireball burned the Bone Soldier while the 44 Caliber crushed the Infinity Carat Diamond with overwhelming strength! But this match here is personal given how Drilla betrayed The United Empire. Will Akira finally put this War Dog down? Or will it be another Drilla Killa from the Abunai Gaijin?

The bell rings and Drilla dropkicks Akira’s legs! Drilla stomps Akira at the ropes, the ref counts and reprimands, and Drilla finally lets off at 4. The fans boo while Akira clutches his knee, but the ref keeps Drilla back. Akira gets up so Drilla kicks out the leg, stomps it, then digs his boot into it!

Akira suffers, the ref reprimands, and Drilla finally lets Akira go. The fans boo but Drilla laughs. Will nothing stop the Abunai Gaijin from tearing through the rest of the block? Will Akira even be able to fight in the BOSJ’s second half?

The Rogue Luchador could not ground The Jet, and now he’s facing the near unstoppable All Heat! Will Desperado get burned again? Or will he bring down THE GCW Champion on his way back to the top?

Winner: El Desperado, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Blake earns 0)

All Heat finally runs out of steam, but Despe still needs the ice for his arm! It was a fiery main event to be sure, but will this first loss take the air out of Blake’s sails? Or can he get hot again in the next round?

As for Desperado, he gets the mic, and he promises someone will translate this for Blake later. When they faced off in America, Desperado thought there’d be more to follow. Desperado waited so long for this, but it was worth the wait! Thanks for the great match! The fans cheer that! Desperado says he was waiting so long, he could’ve made it to the finals twice and lost twice. Whether or not anyone else has waited for this, he’s waited so long to get this! And if we have to wait any longer, even Despe will get bored of himself! So watch closely, because he’s gonna win the whole thing! The fans cheer that! Will the Rogue Luchador, even with a bad arm, claw his way to the top?

Here are the NEW B Block standings!

KUSHIDA: 4-1, 8 points
Taiji Ishimori: 3-2, 6 points
Hiromu Takahashi: 3-2, 6 points
Robbie Eagles: 3-2, 6 points
“Drilla” Moloney: 3-2, 6 points
DOUKI: 3-2, 6 points
SHO: 2-3, 4 points
Francesco Akira: 2-3, 4 points
Ninja Mack: 2-3, 4 points
Dragon Dia: 0-5, 0 points


My Thoughts:

Another awesome round for the BOSJ here, though the results weren’t quite so shocking this time. I will say, it seems like Dia is gonna keep riding the bottom of the block until he has to spoil someone’s run. TJP meanwhile gets a great first win in taking down Hayata. If nothing else, maybe there could be a NJPW VS Noah story where TJP challenges for the GHC National Championship. Great match from Kushida and Taiji for the top spot in B Block, and a very fun match from Hiromu and Mack. Hiromu and Kushida each winning is fitting, they’re both great choices for semifinalists. But with a win over Hiromu and Taiji already, Kushida has all but locked in a spot in the semifinals.

Awesome win for Eagles over Sho, and Sho might have to give a lot of people title matches for the Summer. Awesome main event for Desperado and Blake, and a great win for Desperado here. No more undefeateds in this run, and a win over the A Block leader could be a sign that Desperado is going to the semifinals one way or another. However, in more unfortunate news is that Akira did end up legitimately injured during his match, as confirmed by NJPW themselves. Here’s hoping Akira can still compete in the tournament, he was doing great for being 2-3. If not, points by forfeit would go to Hiromu, Douki, Eagles and Sho. B Block is really strong with a lot of 3-2 records right now, free points would really help Hiromu, Douki and Eagles move past Taiji, who lost to Akira anyway.

My Score: 9/10

Best of the Super Juniors 31 A Block: Clark Connors VS Kosei Fujita!

100 Proof is going strong, but the Ichiban Young Punk isn’t feeling so mighty. Even so, Fujita could make a big leap up the block if he wins here. Will TMDK have a golden ticket to the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships? Or will he have to drown his sorrows with No Chaser?

Connors stands Fujita up and fans move aside! Connors BOWLS Fujita into the chairs! Strike! The fans boo, Connors tells them off but the fans tell him off back. Connors says no one boos him! Nobody! Connors takes a chair, throws it down on Fujita, then does it again and again with more chairs!

The ref reprimands, Connors leaves Fujita behind, and the fans rally up for Fujita. Fujita rises as the ring count starts, but Connors paces around the outside as he waits. The count reaches 10 of 20, then 13. Connors chuckles as Fujita crawls, but then Connors shoves a Young Lion into Fujita! Connors leaves Fujita behind and we’re at 17! 18! Fujita slides in at 19! Connors is mad at the ref for the slow count! The ref defends his count was fair. Connors tells fans off, has a cocky cover on Fujita, but the ref refuses to count. Connors scrapes Fujita’s face, drags him up, and snap suplexes! Then Connors runs to JUMP ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!

Best of the Super Juniors 31 B Block: Dragon Dia VS “Drilla” Dan Moloney!

The Infinity Carat Diamond isn’t shining quite as bright as he’d hope being the bottom of this block. However, 44 Caliber hasn’t quite hit the mark, either. Will Dia be unbreakable even now? Or will he start to crack under the pressure?

The bell rings and the two stare down. The fans rally for Dia and the two circle. They tie up, and Drilla shoves Dia down! Drilla laughs and mockingly apologizes.

Best of the Super Juniors 31 B Block: Hiromu Takahashi VS SHO!

The Ticking Timebomb only just got on the board last round against “Ryusuke Taguchi,” even though it was really Dragon Dia. But facing The Murder Machine could be his best bet back to the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. Will Hiromu be ready for every trick in the book? Or will Sho show us something even more dastardly than ever before?

Wait, wait, wait. What is Sho doing with Hiromu’s framed headshot? And Sho gets the mic to say good evening. It his unfortunate duty to inform everyone that Hiromu could not be here tonight. He has a written statement for Abe-san to read. The fans boo this farce, and Sho intimidates Abe into reading it! The letter is supposedly written by Hiromu himself, apologizing to everyone here tonight that he is unable to compete against “the glorious champion, Sho.” Hiromu doesn’t want to “shame the people of Hachioji by losing to Sho.” Therefore, he cannot wrestle and must forfeit this match. Sho then says this is the truth, Hiromu gave him the letter himself.

Sho says that tonight’s main event will not happen, but the fans chant for “HI-RO-MU! HI-RO-MU!” Sho says yes, he was so looking forward to this tonight. He leads the chant in support of Hiromu, and he “hopes” Hiromu will be alright for next round. Hiromu knows how the fans feel, but Sho will send us home happy with a closing word. The Best of the Super Juniors will have more, more, more, more, more, more fun with everyone~!! Wait, Hiromu’s music plays? Is this more Sho’s sarcasm? Red Shoes won’t raise Sho’s hand in victory because he doesn’t believe this for a moment! Wait, Hiromu IS here, all tied up like Ninja Mack was last round!

Hiromu still gets in the ring and he SHOTGUNS Sho down! Hiromu tells Red Shoes that they can get this going! Hiromu CHOKES Sho with the cuffs Sho put on him! The bell rings, Red Shoes reprimands about the choking, so Hiromu lets off. Hiromu stands Sho up but Sho kicks and whips. Hiromu ducks ‘n’ dodges and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Wait, from the look of it, Hiromu has doodles all over his face! The House of Torture was adding insult to injury apparently. Hiromu kicks Sho out of the ring, then he goes to the apron. Hiromu aims and FLYING SHOTGUNS but into a Young Lion!!

Sho uses Shoma Kato as a shield, then he stomps away on Hiromu! The fans boo, Sho just grins and brings Hiromu up. Sho brings Hiromu along by the cuffs, goes to the back segment of the crowd, and he BOWLS Hiromu into a chair. That’s weak, but then Sho takes a fan’s sign and throws it aside. Sho stomps Hiromu, stalks Hiromu with a chair, but Red Shoes reprimands. Sho puts the chair down, and he pulls on the cuffs to torture Hiromu’s hands! Red Shoes reprimands, Sho lets off, and then Sho leaves Hiromu behind for the ring count. The fans boo Sho, the count begins, and the fans rally up for Hiromu.

Hiromu runs in at 5 of 20 but Sho stomps him! Sho TOSSES Hiromu out, goes after him, and grabs the bell hammer! Red Shoes says no, so Sho throws that away. So then he gets as chair to SMACK Hiromu with! Red Shoes reprimands and Sho “apologizes.” Sho drags Hiromu up, scoops him and POSTS him! Sho then SLAMS Hiromu on the floor! The fans boo more but Sho just grins. Sho leaves Hiromu behind while Red Shoes calls for a key. Sho says he doesn’t know where the key to those went, oh well. A Young Lion hurries backstage to search, but Sho gloats like he’s won anyway. The fans boo and Hiromu storms back to the ring.

Sho hurries out after Hiromu so Hiromu leads him on a high speed chase through the crowd! Sho as the corrupt cop chases the noble hero criminal, all to give the Young Lion more time to find that key! The ring count starts, Hiromu stays away since his hands are still bound. But we’re past 10 of 20, Hiromu has to risk it! Hiromu watches Sho closely, then slides in. But Sho kicks low and CLUBS Hiromu down! Sho drags Hiromu up, THROWS him back out, and then goes out after him. Sho grabs his title belt, takes aim, but Red Shoes reprimands. Sho throws the belt aside, goes looking for a chair, but the key is here!

Sho SMACKS Hiromu again! Sho puts Hiromu in, but wait, was that not the right key? The Young Lions have to go looking again! Sho scoops and SLAMS Hiromu! Sho then gets the legs, and he turns Hiromu for the BOSTON CRAB! Sho wants to humiliate Hiromu with a Young Lion level hold! Hiromu endures, fights forward, but Sho drags him back! Sho sits deep on the hold, but Hiromu endures! The Young Lions return, still no luck!! The fans can’t believe it, but the Young Lions search a third time! Hiromu still fights to the ROPEBREAK! Sho lets go but he’s having fun messing with Hiromu now. Sho taunts the fans but they boo.

Sho kicks Hiromu around, taunts him, but Hiromu CLUBS him! Sho says that’s not fair, he used the cuffs as weapons! Red Shoes says Sho’s the one who gave Hiromu the cuffs! Sho avoids Hiromu but Hiromu CLUBS him again! Red Shoes ignores what’s going on, and the fans cheer that justice! Sho CLAWS Hiromu’s eyes, then runs, but Hiromu blows past him to RANA! The fans fire up because Hiromu can still use his legs! Sho bails out, Hiromu has a reprieve, and referee Kevin Sato is here with the key! So Sho gets in his way!

Hiromu drags Sho up to whip him to a corner and clothesline! Snapmare and basement dropkick! The fans fire up and Hiromu drags Sho up to reel him in. FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO! Hiromu throws off the shirt House of Torture doodled all over, and he drags Sho up. Hiromu fireman’s carries to CORNER DEATH VALLEY! Oh wait, the House of Torture drew poo on Hiromu’s back. He probably doesn’t even know! But Hiromu fireman’s carries again, only for Sho to bend fingers!

Rede Shoes reprimands but Hiromu kicks, KICKS and whips. Sho reverses, Hiromu stops himself and BOOTS back! Then HANGING HEADSCISSORS! Sho grabs at Red Shoes, and YUJIRO is here! Tokyo Pimp attacks Hiromu and drags him down! REVERSE DDT to the floor! Yujiro puts Hiromu in for Sho, Sho drags Hiromu to a cover, but Red Shoes refuses because of how Sho mistreated him! Sho is furious but Yujiro gets on the apron to argue with him. Sho gets the Torture Tool! Sho aims, swings, but Hiromu ducks! Hiromu snatches the wrench, then throws it back to frame Sho! The fans cheer and Sho defends his innocence on this specific moment!

Red Shoes still confiscates the wrench, Hiromu runs, but then Red Shoes is used as a shield! LOW BLOW!! And then Hiromu is shoved into Red Shoes! Sho and Yujiro then stomp away on Hiromu! The fans boo but this is the House of Torture for you. They double whip Hiromu, then Yujiro BOOTS! Sho runs up to clothesline! Sho snapmares Hiromu then sets him up for the FALLING HEADBUTT LOW BLOW! Sho covers and Red Shoes is back to count, TWO!! Hiromu survives and the fans are thunderous! But Sho vows to end it now. The fans rally for “HI-RO-MU! HI-RO-MU!” but Sho stalks him.

But Hiromu kicks Sho’s legs out first! And then TRIANGLE D!!

The fans fire up as LIJ supports LIJ! HIROMU-CHAN BOMBER!! And then inverted suplex, TIMEBOMB MK II!!! Cover, Hiromu wins!!!

Winner: Hiromu Takahashi, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Sho earns 0)

Justice, true justice, has been served! The villainous Murder Machine loses in the main event he tried to steal, will he finally learn that crime doesn’t pay?

As for Hiromu, he gets a mic and he tells Sho to hold on. Hiromu has to admit, Sho really is amazing. Hiromu ought to commend Sho. AS IF! Sho should apologize to the great people of Hachioji and to all of Japan, the stupid moron! The fans cheer that! And then apparently, Hiromu winning the main event also won him a year’s supply of original Hachioji ramen? And to present the certificate is the owner of SUPER ALPS, Nobuhisa Shiozawa. The fans cheer this great honor for both of them, especially for a Hachioji native like Hiromu. Wait, would Sho have still been given this had he won? Well, all’s well that ends well.

Hiromu and Shiozawa-san have their photo op, and then Hiromu puts his prize aside so he can get back on the mic. The fans chant for “HI-RO-MU! HI-RO-MU!” Hiromu then tells everyone, “I’m home.” The fans cheer with an “Okairi! <Welcome home!>” Hiromu does apologize that it had to be Sho for this match. But Hiromu does want to talk to Bushi. They’re in different blocks, meaning they could end up opponents down the line. Even so, Bushi helped Hiromu out here, and he thanks Bushi for that. The fans applaud that, too! Hiromu then says, “See you in the semifinals, or even the finals!”

Hiromu thanks everyone for coming tonight. He’s still bummed to see empty seats. This building can fit about 5 THOUSAND, it’s that big. The other day, he was in Niigata, went out for a late dinner, and there was a guy at the restaurant who was a fan. “Oh, it’s Hiromu!” All excited to see him and stuff. Hiromu was flattered, glad to chat. Hiromu asked the fan how the show was tonight, and the guy went, “Huh? There was a show tonight?” A funny story, but it also bummed Hiromu out. NJPW needs to promote better. When NJPW goes to all these different places, even the wrestlers try to promote a little.

And this was a guy who watches World Pro-Wrestling TV weekly! Even then, he didn’t know NJPW was in town! It’s not funny, it’s a real problem and NJPW is working to fix it. But it’s also on the wrestlers to promote the shows more. They gotta hit TV, radio, newspapers, everywhere! Plaster the towns with posters! Advertise anywhere and everywhere! The fans applaud that. Hiromu knows Hachioji is a big city, but he also knows there are a lot of people here who love pro-wrestling. But many still miss out on live shows. If they knew, how many do you think would be in here? And Hiromu knows it’d be a whole lot of fun! The fans cheer that!

“That’s why, wherever we go, big or small, we have to reach each and every person. It’s on each and every wrestler to do so. With that kind of promotion, we can let every fan know that wrestling’s in town and pack the house.” The fans cheer in support of that! Hiromu says they haven’t gone as far as they can yet. They can fill up the seats in here! It’s what he wants! This is Best of the Super Juniors, and the finals are gonna main event Osaka-Jo Hall! And of course it’s gotta be Hiromu in that ring, in that spotlight! Hiromu vows to win BOSJ 31! And then he’ll return here next year as the champion! The fans love the sound of that!

Hiromu wants everyone here to remember his words. “Get excited for the next time we’re in town.” And of course, in this BOSJ, they have to have more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more, MORE, MORE, MORE, MORE, MORE… FUN TOGETHER~! Hiromu is not just aiming for the trophy and the championship, he wants NJPW to have it all! But will he be able to have it all himself as the rounds keep on coming?

My Thoughts:

Another great round for NJPW here with both blocks going in one night. And great news that of all the matches heading towards Dominion, it will be the BOSJ 31 finals that take the main event. I suppose that means Moxley VS Evil will be second to last, with all the usual antics certainly keeping it from being just a real good match. But that aside, the standings took quite a shift here, with Kushida and Taiji both taking their first losses, right as they’re about to face off in Round 5. Knight getting that comeback win on Desperado was great stuff, and Blake Christian coming out as the ONLY 4-0 is some great stuff.

Bushi getting the win over TJP definitely adds to TJP’s crisis of confidence angle, and I suppose Dia losing again shouldn’t be too shocking given Drilla can’t let someone else get a golden ticket off him. Fujita getting one off Connors is great, though, and with Eagles having already beat Drilla, maybe we get Fujita & Eagles VS Connors & Drilla at Dominion, as I don’t see three-fourths of that making the semifinals. And it’d be pretty cool if TMDK got in on feuding with Bullet Club War Dogs as War Dogs transition away from other feuds.

Hiromu VS Sho was really good stuff, especially with these apparent “arrest” antics. Great win for Hiromu, and great promo from him, as well. Hiromu obviously wants Junior Heavyweight wrestling to come into its own, but he also wants NJPW to get back up to where it was before Pandemic. The lack of advertising and promoting was a rather quiet problem as far as an American fan like myself could tell, so I commend on Hiromu bringing that real conversation up and charging his fellow wrestlers and the company with fixing it, not just leaving it up to fans.

My Score: 9/10
