Edge is here again!

The Rated R Superstar made sure Roman Reigns knew he was back last week with that attack all around ringside, and now he’s in the ThunderDome again as he’s not set to face Roman for the WWE Universal Championship 1v1 at Money in the Bank! Edge gets a mic to say, “WrestleMania was supposed to be the culmination of a 10 year story. Winning the Universal Championship 10 years to the day after being forced to retire as the World Heavyweight Champion would’ve made for a hell of a story, wouldn’t it?” Edge envisioned it so much that he knew it’d happen. But then it didn’t. Edge didn’t see that coming, it wasn’t in his plans.

Full transparency, it rocked him. Edge took time to recover, and thinking it back in his brain, and even watching it back, something he never does. Roman likes to gloss over some key points that happened at Mania. Edge could complain about how his one fear of Daniel Bryan being involved would cost Edge came true. How Bryan stopped Roman from tapping out. How Bryan pulled the ref out after Edge hit a Spear. Roman was practically stapled to the mat, he wasn’t getting up. Edge could complain about Jey Uso stopping a Con-Chair-To. He could, he really could, and would be justified in doing so. 2006 Edge definitely would have.

But 2021 Edge understands that there will always be excuses and obstacles. Edge spent his entire career knocking down obstacles, or he wouldn’t be here right now! “I don’t stop.” But here’s the thing: Now that Edge has been in here with Roman 1v1, he knows he can win. More importantly, Roman knows it. They’re the only ones that know because Roman felt it as Edge felt it. Edge knows Roman won’t admit it, but here’s some proof: the picture of Edge getting Roman in the crossface with the chair crossbar in his mouth! Look at those bugged out, crossed eyes! Those eyes have fear! They’re in deep water, deeper than they’ve ever been in before

Now look at Edge’s face. That’s the look of a man who knows he lives inside the other man’s head! When you can make a man look like Roman does, you live in his head for life! When Roman heard Edge’s music, the look on his face solidified what Edge already knew. Roman knew deep down that no matter what the odds say non paper, Edge has Roman’s number. Edge vows to beat Roman, it’s just a matter of when. This is inevitable. Edge will be WWE Universal Champion! The Rated R Superstar is ready, but will he get revenge and redemption at MITB?

 

Paul Heyman watches this from the private suite.

Jimmy Uso walks over and says everyone obviously just heard that. Everyone knows Edge is talking about having Roman’s number, about how Roman’s gonna lose at MITB. Tell Jimmy Edge ain’t saying all that. Jimmy will tell Roman again that he’s got Roman’s back just like Roman’s got his. When Roman gets here, he and Jimmy will put Edge down and stamp the family flag right in the middle of Edge’s forehead. Heyman just stares at Jimmy, but will he advise Roman to follow Jimmy’s plan?

 

Rick Boogs rocks out!

“Hear ye, hear ye! Welcome to Friday Night SmackDown!” Boogs is here to rock with the one TRUE king of ALLLLL WWE~! #Kingsuke NakamurAAAAAAA~! The theme plays and here comes the King of Strong Style! Shinsuke goes to the ring and his rocking bard follows, and they continue to rock out. But now here comes Big E! The Powerhouse of Positivity is excited to be teaming with The King against their eternal rivals! Will Nakamura be able to #ThinkBig and take down the WWE Intercontinental Champion and the former Wolf King?

Big E & Shinsuke Nakamura w/ Rick Boogs VS Baron Corbin & Apollo Crews w/ Commander Azeez!

SmackDown returns as Apollo makes his entrance, Azeez following behind. Then Corbin makes his entrance, only reminded of his failure by his titantron still reading “King Corbin.” His beard is scruffy and his face is sullen, and then as if adding insult to injury, the ring announcer forgets to change back to announcing him as Baron Corbin. Corbin still joins Apollo at the corner and teams sort out. Apollo starts against #Kingsuke and they circle. They tie up, Nakamura headlocks, but Apollo powers out. They ram shoulders, and Apollo dares Nakamura to try again. Nakamura runs but Apollo reel shim in for a headlock!

Nakamura throws body shots, powers out but Apollo runs him over. Apollo tells Corbin to snap out of it, he needs Corbin in this match. Apollo turns around, ducks one kick but not the other! Nakamura gets Apollo up, whips him to the corner and back elbows! Nakamura hoists Apollo onto the top rope, rolls back and comes in for the TOP SHELF KNEE! Boogs rocks out as Big E wants to tag in. Nakamura gives him the tag, and together, they give Apollo GOOD~ Vibrations! Big E gets Apollo up and goes around with him for an abdominal stretch! Apollo endures, fights out but Big E CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Cover, TWO!

Big E gets Apollo up but Apollo throat chops! Big E runs in, Apollo elbows him away and tags in Corbin! Big E BLASTS Corbin, goes out after Apollo, but Corbin CLOBBERS Big E! Corbin throws Big E up and over the barriers and snarls as he backs off. Corbin’s anger might help him get through his depression while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns and Corbin rains down elbows on Big E! Corbin puts on a half nelson chinbar and grinds Big E but the ThunderDome rallies up! Big E fights up, throws body shots, and runs, but Corbin elbows him down! Cover, TWO! Corbin drags Big E up, brings him over and tags in Apollo. They mug Big E, Apollo throws haymakers, then wrenches an arm to whip Big E to ropes for a BIG dropkick! Apollo grins and looms over Big E. Apollo wraps on a facelock and grinds Big E down. Big E fights up, powers his way towards his corner, but Apollo shoves him away to ENZIGURI! Big E ends up in the corner, Apollo runs in, but Big E sends Apollo out!

Corbin tags in as Apollo goes flying, and he gets ahead of Big E to whip him into buckles! Corbin DECKS Nakamura, scoops Big E and POWERSLAMS! Cover, Nakamura breaks it! Apollo is in and he GERMAN SUPLEXES Nakamura! Apollo chases Nakamura out, scoops but Nakamura slides off to ENZIGURI Apollo down! Corbin gives more elbows to Big E and has the half nelson chinbar again! Big E endures, but “Ladies and gentlemen, whoever is the rightful owner of a white Mercedes SUV with the license plate KING-CR-BN, it looks like your car’s being towed!” Corbin can’t believe it, but YES! His Mercedes-Benz is being repo’d!!

Corbin is devastated as his world just keeps going down the drain! Big E scoops him for a BIG ENDING! Cover, Big E & Nakamura win!

Winners: Shinsuke Nakamura & Big E, by pinfall

Corbin is hurting in more ways than one right now as the losses keep piling up in and out of the ring. What more can happen to the fallen king before he hits rock bottom?

 

Bayley heads to the ring!

The Role Model is back in a good mood because she pinned the SmackDown Women’s Champion last week! “You’re welcome, ThunderDome!” But will she still be in a good mood after having a face-to-face with Bianca Belair after the break?

SmackDown returns and Bayley has a mic already and says, “I’m not the type of person to come out here and brag and say ‘I told you so,’ but pff, I told you so!” Bianca Belair winning at Hell in a Cell was a fluke, and Bayley proved it winning last week, 1-2-3, ding ding dong! And the best was the look in Bianca’s eyes! A look of loss, despair, defeat, and questioning everything that she did wrong. We all know how strong Bianca is physically, but she’s mentally weak! Bayley made it look easy reigning for 380 days compared to Bianca’s just 80 days, but a loss like that this early is not a good sign! Bianca is clearly crumbling under the weight of our expectations.

Bianca better get her head in the game because in two short weeks, the WWE is back live in front of the fans! And Bayley would be so sad to see Bianca completely fall apart in front of all the little kids who worship her! It could happen. Bayley soaks up the heat from the ThunderDome fans but says, “Bianca ain’t nothing to Bayley! Never has, never will be!” But speaking of, here comes the EST! Bianca joins Bayley in the ring, gets herself a mic, and says, “Girrrl. What you need is a little crack in that mouth!” Bayley may want the title, but Bianca has the title. Bianca keeps beating Bayley over and over and over again but Bayley keeps coming back. It’s like Bayley is obsessed!

And Bayley thinks Bianca is in her head? No, Bayley knows it! Bianca can’t even look her in the eye! Bianca’s shaking in her boots, her nails are clacking together, she’s breathing heavy- Y’know what? Bianca admits Bayley IS in her head. No matter how many times Bianca wins, Bayley has excuses, so Bayley’s voice is always in Bianca’s head. The only way to end this is for Bianca to embarrass her to the point of no return. Bayley tries to laugh that off but Bianca says she is so OVER Bayley. Bianca thinks, and says if the officials will allow it, they will have a title match, in an I QUIT match!! Bayley says that has to be a joke. But Bianca’s serious! Bayley really did get in Bianca’s head!

Bianca knows Bayley well enough that Bayley’s never quit anything in her life! This is what she’s wanted to do her whole life, and she’s here, and has done everything she wanted to, more than anything Bianca ever could do. So if Bianca can make Bayley say “I Quit,” she’d quit SmackDown. No wait, she’d quit the WWE! And wrestling altogether! But hearing Bianca say those words wouldn’t surprise Bayley at all. We all know that Bianca is not the champion she portrays herself to be. Bianca has no chance, so Bayley accepts!

And now Bianca laughs at Bayley! What’s so funny? Bianca thought she was so sick of Bayley running her mouth, but Bianca just realized how excited she is to hear Bayley say those words, “I Quit.” Will Bayley eat her words here tonight after saying those two powerful words at MITB?

 

Heyman paces about in the private suite.

But he smiles as Jimmy returns. Is Roman here yet? It’s cool, because when Roman gets here, Jimmy knows Edge is waiting. Jimmy knows Roman doesn’t care about all that, but what is he waiting on? Wait, Jimmy’s got it! Roman’s waiting on Jimmy to step up! Jimmy says he’ll get this. He’ll go to Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville and tell them to save some space later tonight. #MainEventJimmy will call Edge out, then beat him up all over the place! Heyman smiles and Jimmy heads out. Will this initiative help Jimmy get in the Tribal Chief’s good graces? Will it also keep Edge from making it to MITB?

 

Money in the Bank Qualifier Last Man Standing Match: Kevin Owens VS Sami Zayn!

For two decades, these two have gone back and forth, from friends to enemies and back again, all over the world and in multiple promotions. But now, this could all end in a referee’s ten count! Will Kevin #JustKeepFighting to shut Sami up and go to MITB? Or will the “Champion of the People” triumph over the supposed Anti-Sami conspiracy and get the golden ticket?

SmackDown returns as Sami makes his entrance. The bell rings, Kevin dodges Sami to tackle him! Kevin rains down fists, stomps Sami in the corner, then runs corner to corner for a CANNONBALL! The ref starts a count as Sami flops out of the ring. The count is already 5 of 10 as Sami gets up, but Kevin is right after him! Kevin blocks a kick to kick real low and CHOP real hard! Kevin whips Sami into barriers, then stalks him around the way. Sami staggers towards the announce desk but Kevin whips him into more barriers! Kevin aims as Sami slowly drags himself up. Kevin storms back over to ROCK Sami with a right!

Kevin whips, Sami reverses, and Kevin hits barriers! Sami CLOBBERS Kevin as Kevin staggers over! Kevin stands but Sami fires off hands! Kevin hits back, they brawl against barriers, but Kevin ROCKS Sami! Kevin then tosses Sami up and over the barriers, then hurries after him. Kevin SMACKS Sami off ThunderDome screens! And again! And again! Sami staggers, and kicks Kevin in the throat! Kevin’s throat still can’t be 100% from taking Nigerian Nails, but Kevin headbutts Sami down! Kevin climbs the barrier to SWANTON BOMB to the floor! Sami writhes as the count begins again! Sami claws his way to the announce desk and uses it to stand at 6 of 10.

Kevin bounces Sami off the desk! Kevin sets Sami up on the table, throws hands, then climbs up the barrier again! But Sami gets to him first, to TOSS him onto the announce desk!! The table doesn’t break but Kevin’s back might’ve! Kevin writhes as the count begins again. Kevin drags himself up with the steel steps and stands at 7 of 10! Sami is frustrated but this will continue as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Kevin RAMS into Sami in the corner again and again! And again and again! Sami flops over as Kevin finally lets off and a count begins. Kevin watches Sami as he flounders against ropes. Sami is up at 5 but Kevin brings him to his knees and on the ropes. Kevin kicks the rope to jack Sami’s neck up! Now Sami gasps and sputters as a count begins again. Sami manages to sit up and SLAP Kevin, but Kevin SLAPS Sami back down! Sami gets up, Kevin ROCKS him, and ROCKS him again! Then CHOPS him off his feet! The count begins again but Sami flops out of the ring at 3. Kevin goes out after Sami as Sami stands at 6, and then RAMS Sami into a post!

Kevin gets Sami up to POST Sami crotch first! Sami flops off the post and the count begins again. Kevin tells Sami to stay down but Sami refuses. Sami’s up at 7, but Kevin keeps him from getting to far into the ring. Sami ROCKS Kevin, Kevin ROCKS Sami back! Sami throws a haymaker, Kevin SLAPS him down! Kevin starts looking under the ring, and he brings out a TABLE! The ThunderDome likes that and Kevin sets the table up near the corner! Sami stands at 6 of 10, so Kevin gets a SECOND table! Sami flounders about, the count is going again as Kevin sets the second table on the first! Sami is back up at 6 for a second time, but Kevin brings him to the corner!

Kevin gets up top, drags Sami up with him, but Sami fights the suplex! Sami throws body shots, pulls a crossbar’s pad off, and then throws headlock punches! Sami HOTSHOTS Kevin as he jumps down! Kevin sputters again, the damage to his throat coming into play. Sami builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit and Sami feels like he’s already won! The count begins and Kevin sits up at 3. Sami shakes his head, wanting Kevin to stay down, but Kevin is up at 5. Sami pursues Kevin into the ring, sits him up and throws crossface forearms! Kevin slaps back, it is a brawl while Kevin is down on the mat! Kevin grabs hair, Sami ROCKS him! Kevin throws haymakers back!

Sami BOOTS Kevin, and gives him a CORNER EXPLODER!! Both men are down so the count is on both of them! The count is 5, Sami staggers up, but Kevin isn’t up until 6. Sami runs in to fire off haymakers, then he hoists Kevin up top. Sami climbs, tries to suplex but Kevin resists! SUPER FISHERMAN BUSTER!! But Kevin may’ve hurt his arm at the same time! The standing count is on both men again but Kevin walks on his knees to ropes. Sami is still down at 5 of 10, but he starts getting up. Sami drags himself up on ropes and is up at 8! Sami gets to a corner, Kevin heads that way, and SUPERKICKS Sami! Sami swings feebly but Kevin SUPERKICKS him again!

Kevin looks at Sami and Sami eggs him on. SUPERKICK number three! Sami stays up using the corner, so Kevin puts him up top. Kevin CHOPS Sami, climbs up to join him, but Sami slips under to SHOVE Kevin over! Kevin crashes through the tables!! The ref checks on Kevin but starts the count. Sami feels like he’s already won but Kevin is stirring at 5! Kevin drags himself to the ring, Sami can’t believe it! Kevin stands at 9.9!! Sami is in shock! Kevin staggers about as Sami argues the count, and SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Sami is setting up tables of his own! Sami throws the announce desk hood at Kevin’s bad arm and Kevin writhes in pain. Sami moves the hood aside to then drag Kevin up by his hair. Kevin hits back but Sami fires off haymakers! Sami drags Kevin up the steel steps and aims for the table he introduced, but Kevin resists by holding the post! Kevin punches back then SMACKS Sami off the post! Kevin gets some space, storms back over and brings Sami around the way to throw into barriers. Sami boots back and kicks the bad arm! Sami CLUBS Kevin to the apron, Kevin climbs the apron but Sami joins him, only for Kevin to BOOT him!

Kevin kicks but Sami blocks the Stunner! Sami half nelsons, for an APRON HALF ‘N’ HALF!! Kevin flops to the floor but the count is on both men as Sami rolls into the ring. Sami sits up at 4, Kevin stirs at 5, and somehow Kevin is up at 7?! Sami is furious as Kevin gets back in the ring, but Sami runs corner to corner for a HELLUVA KICK!! Kevin flops over, the count begins again and Sami talks trash. Kevin pushes himself up at 5, glares at Sami, and stands at 7 again. Sami runs corner to corner again to HELLUVA KICK! But Sami keeps Kevin up this time, because “this is karma! For everything you’ve ever done!” Sami runs corner to corner again for a THIRD HELLUVA KICK!

Kevin drops, the count begins, and Sami leans on ropes as he catches his breath. The count is 5, Kevin slowly rolls, but Sami thinks he’s already got this. Sami never learns because Kevin rolls out to stand at 9!! Sami argues with the ref but that’s just physics for you! Sami goes out and runs around the way, to DAREDEVIL DIVE into a SUPERKICK! Kevin kicks Sami in midflight, then gets in as the count begins. Kevin drags Sami up because he’s not done, whip and POP-UP POWERBOMB!! Sami is down again for another count, and yet Sami stirs at 5! Sami pushes up at 7, stands at 8, but Kevin hits a STUNNER!! Sami flops to the apron and to the floor!

Kevin goes out after Sami, and Sami begs for mercy! Kevin doesn’t care, he drags Sami up. Sami asks, “How did we get here?” And Kevin says KARMA! POWERBOMB through the announce desk! Then a POWERBOMB through Sami’s table! Then a POWERBOMB to the apron!!! Things are full circle for these two as a new standing count begins! It’s 5, then 7! Sami can’t get up, Kevin wins!!

Winner: Kevin Owens (advances to the Men’s MITB Ladder Match)

The Prizefighter finally finishes the Great Liberator, and now he’s going for the briefcase! Will KO #StunTheWorld when he faces a stacked field at MITB?

 

Backstage interview with Edge.

What does he make of Jimmy’s plan to call him out near the end of the night? Megan Morant, is it? Well, Edge knows she’s new here, but even in her time she has to understand there’s some kind of trap set. Yes, it does seem suspicious. Of course it is! Jimmy is putting on a good show saying Roman isn’t here, but Jimmy has it wrong. Roman knows that Edge knows what’s coming. They’re trying to pull one over on the Ultimate Opportunist, which is interesting. Edge could beat up Jimmy, but then the supposed Tribal Chief shows up for a 2v1, but Edge knows that. And he doesn’t care. Edge is tired of Roman, of Roman’s family, and of excuses.

They can set a trap for Edge, because they’ll be facing an “angry, vindictive son of a bitch.” The Rated R Superstar sees through the schemes, but will Roman have something up his sleeve Edge doesn’t see coming?

 

Rick Boogs finds Baron Corbin backstage.

Boogs says he was talking to the guys in the locker room about getting something to eat, and he feels Corbin should join them. They’ll get chicken a la king. Okay, okay, sorry, but Corbin will probably feel a lot better about this after a good night’s sleep. On a king sized bed. Okay, okay, okay, honestly, honestly! Nakamura said the funniest thing last night. They were playing Checkers, and he said… “King me!” Boogs is obviously amused with himself but Corbin isn’t. Is it fun kicking a guy while he’s down? Well here’s what Corbin has to say to him and everyone else: screw you. Will Corbin be able to get past the past and look to a brighter future?

 

Sonya Deville heads to the ring.

After naming Carmella to the Women’s MITB match for SmackDown last week, the WWE official is ready to name a second! Will Liv Morgan’s win last week have made an impression? Or does Sonya have someone else in mind? We find out, after the break.

SmackDown returns and Sonya is honored to name the second SmackDown participant. One of the most dynamic and driven WWE superstars today… “Please welcome Zelina Vega!” La Muneca is back and is jumping right into a major opportunity! SmackDown’s field is now halfway filled, and Vega gets a mic to say hi to Sonya. And yes, it is nice to see her. Clearly it IS Sonya’s honor to announce Vega’s return, just like it’ll be Vega’s pleasure to grab the MITB contract and, at the right moment, with whoever the champion is and when they’re vulnerable, that is when Vega will be cashing in HER Ms. MITB Contract to achieve her goal of becoming a Raw, SmackDown or even NXT Women’s Champion!

But wait, here comes Liv Morgan again! “No no no nonono.” What is this? It is bad enough to just put Carmella in the match without her even earning it, but Liv still feels she belongs! Now Sonya is rewarding Vega with a spot? Vega says she’s that good. Oh yeah, she worked so hard, huh? But Vega doesn’t deserve this, she hasn’t competed all year! How is this fair? Vega mocks Liv and says it is fair because Vega has competed in this ring for years! She is one of the most popular female competitors in WWE history! And she can run circles around Liv, embarrass her, and will show how Liv is just an amateur. So that is why Vega is in the MITB match!

Liv SLAPS Vega! “Prove it!” Liv wants to have a match with Vega now! Sonya thinks it over, and says alright. Another match for the determined and hungry Liv Morgan, but will this finally be what convinces Sonya?

Liv Morgan VS Zelina Vega!

SmackDown returns and Vega already has Liv caught in an Iron Octopus! Liv powers out, but Vega throws Liv down by her hair! Vega swaggers about, runs at Liv on the ropes and tiger feints to a DRAPING CRUCIFIX! The ref counts, Vega lets off, and Mella is watching backstage as Vega bulldogs Liv down! Cover, TWO! Vega is annoyed with Liv and she slaps her to a corner! Vega runs, in Liv goes up and over and comes back, but into a clothesline! Cover, TWO! Vega is frustrated with Liv now, and she bumps Liv off buckles. Vega gets in Liv’s face before she BOOTS her, then kicks her down! Vega runs to KNEE Liv down! Cover, TWO!

Vega throws a bit of a tantrum, but Liv gets her for a ghost pin! TWO, Vega kicks but Liv blocks to spin and O’Conner Roll! TWO, Vega has the tights! The ref sees that, stops counting, and Liv rolls Vega with tights!! Liv wins!!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall

Turnabout is fair play! Vega is furious about it, but will Sonya give Liv her chance at MITB?

 

Sonya talks with Adam Pearce.

But then Seth Rollins walks in and is very polite as he says hello and introduces himself, then lists off his accomplishments. Pleasure to make their acquaintance. They know who he is, Seth… Yes, right, they do! Because he is sure they’d forgotten since they gave Edge the match at MITB! They promised that match to Seth, remember?! Sonya says they never promised him anything, they were just going to take it under advisement. But they said they were inclined to agree with Seth! Pearce says Edge deserves this opportunity. Yes, yes, Edge deserves it. But do you know who else deserves it? SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!!

Pearce says Seth can’t pretend Edge doesn’t have all the same accomplishments he does. But the difference is that Edge won the 2021 Royal Rumble match, but he did not get his 1v1. Oh is that Rollins’ fault? No it’s not! You nincompoops did that to him! Well, the decision has been made, and Rollins gets his opportunity to win the Men’s MITB ladder match so he can use the contract to cash-in. That is, if Rollins beats Cesaro in a qualifier. Rollins takes a deep breath to keep calm, and then smiles, and even laughs. Is the Architect not taking the Swiss Superman seriously enough given the golden ticket is on the line?

 

Otis w/ Chad Gable VS Angelo Dawkins!

This match was meant to happen a week ago, but the Alpha Academy’s top (and only) student bulldozed Dawkins before the bell ever rang! Will Dawkins bring the #CurseofGreatness down upon Otis and make him pay for what he’s done to the Street Profits? Or will Otis just bulldoze Dawkins after the bell rings this time?

SmackDown returns and Dawkins makes his entrance. The bell rings this time, Dawks fires off haymakers but Otis shoves him. Dawkins dodges and back elbows but Otis stays up! Gable is on the apron, Dawkins DECKS him, but Otis CLOBBERS Dawkins! Otis drags Dawkins up, hammerlocks the bad arm and RAMS it into buckles! Dawkins scrambles away but Otis is on him in the other corner. Otis hammerlocks the arm again for the FALL AWAY SLAM! Dawkins writhes and flounders while Gable tells Otis to stay on him. Otis throws the headbands away and then gets Dawkins up. Otis whips Dawkins hard into buckles, then CLOBBERS him again!

Gable cheers Otis on as his “Number one guy,” and Otis goes to a corner. Otis climbs, aims, and DOZER SPLASHES!! But Otis doesn’t cover there, he wants to make Dawkins suffer! Otis drags Dawkins closer to the corner, climbs up again, VADER BOMB!! Cover, Otis wins!

Winner: Otis, by pinfall

Gable celebrates with Otis, who is truly a human wrecking ball! Will the Alpha Academy soon steamroll their way to the SmackDown Tag Team Championships?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

The last two SmackDown Men’s MITB qualifiers have been made! We already know about Rollins VS Cesaro, but now Nakamura VS Corbin has been added! Will Corbin get a semblance of payback on #Kingsuke by denying him this next prize?

 

Jimmy talks with Heyman at gorilla position.

Where’s Roman? Jimmy heard Edge talking all that about Roman being motivated by fear and stuff. Roman needs to know about this, Uce. Heyman says they both know how Jimmy’s cousin is. The Tribal Chief operates on Tribal Chief time. Everything that Roman does, he does for the family. He does for those who do for him. All Jimmy has to do is go out there and be #MainEventJimmyUso! Jimmy likes the sound of that and says he will! Jimmy will do it for Roman! Jimmy makes his entrance and goes to the ring, but is he the one falling for a trap?

SmackDown returns again and Jimmy asks, “Where you at, Edge? Cuz I’m right here, Uce!” Where’d Edge go? Looks like it’s just them tonight. No Roman here tonight, Edge. To be real, Jimmy doesn’t need Roman. He can handle Edge all by himself! So where you at? Seems to Jimmy that Edge ain’t man enough to get back here and be face to face with him. This isn’t a trap, Jimmy promises. This is just Uce calling Edge out! Let’s go! Jimmy paces, and gets fired up. “Bring yo’ ass out here right now!” Edge makes his entrance, has a mic, and says, “You think you’re smart? All jacked up, acting all bowed up, because you’ve got your cousin waiting in the wings?”

Does Jimmy not see it? Roman is using Jimmy like he uses the entire family! Just look w hat happened to Jey! Roman beat the hell out of Jey until Jey acknowledge Roman as Head of the Table! Jimmy knows, he was there! And then when Roman was done with Jey, he moved on to Jimmy. What happened to Jimmy’s backbone? What happened to #NobodysBitch? Now you are one! And here’s what Jimmy doesn’t realize: Roman laid the perfect trap, but not for Edge. This is a trap for Jimmy. Edge goes to the ring, Jimmy looks around, and no Roman. Jimmy rushes Edge but is sent into a corner! Edge POSTS Jimmy in another corner!

Edge goes out to the apron, drags Jimmy up and POSTS him on yet another corner! Jimmy flops down, Edge pulls steel steps apart and brings the base over, but Jimmy SUPERKICKS him down! Jimmy snarls as he gets back up and gets Edge to the steps. Jimmy SMACKS Edge off the steel, puts Edge back in the ring, and then drags him to center. Jimmy rains down furious fists and then looks around. No Roman still, so Jimmy rushes Edge again. Edge BOOTS Jimmy down! Edge returns the ground ‘n’ pound from all sides! Edge drags Jimmy into the CROSSFACE! Jimmy has the same look of shock and fear as Roman did, and he TAPS OUT!

Edge lets Jimmy go, but he’s not done with him! Edge aims from a corner, watches Jimmy gasp and sputter while getting to his feet, and then runs in to SPEAR Jimmy down!! Edge still isn’t done, and he goes out to get chairs! We all know what Edge does with those, but then he breaks off a crossbar! Edge wants to truly recreate WrestleMania 37 with Jimmy in Roman’s place! Crossface with the crossbar!!! Jimmy really does have the same look of fear as Edge shouts, “LOOK, ROMAN!! LOOK IN HIS EYES, ROMAN!!” Jimmy taps but it doesn’t matter as Edge keeps going! “I’M COMING FOR YOU, ROMAN!!!”

Edge finally lets Jimmy go to stare into the camera, and shouts “I. Don’t. STOP!” Will Roman choose to stay away until the last possible moment? Or is Edge playing right into Roman’s heartless game of chess?


My Thoughts:

Another great SmackDown, and it is pretty wild how Roman wasn’t actually on the show tonight, yet the story still had great progress. Edge does make a good point that Jimmy’s sudden flip in character seems a little too quick, but it also still feeds into everything. Jimmy is another pawn, Roman let him take that beating as part of a twisted test of loyalties, while also having Edge get himself so fired up that he might mess up at MITB. At a certain point, this has to push even Jimmy to where he realizes what’s happening and the Usos reunite while standing against Roman. And I still don’t see Edge coming out Universal Champion, even if MITB is the first WWE PPV in front of fans since Mania.

It was obvious with last week’s win that Bayley was going to challenge Bianca for the title again, but an I Quit match is going to make this insane! The live fans are going to eat that up so it is a great choice for MITB. The promo segment setting this up could have been a bit better, something still seems off when Bianca and Belair talk to each other, but it’s a minor thing compared to the action. Seth Rollins had a good segment with Sonya and Pearce to set up his newest rematch with Cesaro, and making it an MITB qualifier on top of it is good. It at least gives us reasons why Rollins doesn’t go after Edge directly, and I wonder if Rollins wins MITB to then try a NEW Heist of the Century.

The Last Man Standing match between Kevin and Sami was incredible! I’m sure they made sure it wasn’t the main event match so that it could have time to breathe, and that made it all the better for it. When was the last time any promotion anywhere gave us a table tower spot? Kevin winning makes all the sense, from how he has to get past Sami to go back after Roman and the Universal Championship, and this fits how Kevin has been telling Paul Heyman on Talking Smack that he’d get the MITB contract so that Roman won’t have a choice in facing him again. However, a lot of that likely means Kevin isn’t winning so that he has to fight his way back.

We got a good tag match out of Big E, Nakamura, Apollo and Corbin, but boy WWE loves to kayfabe dump on Corbin sometimes. His car being towed as a distraction so Nakamura & Big E could win seemed a match too soon. Boogs poking fun at him also seemed too much. Isn’t Corbin still a Heel? I get that bad things happening to bad people is on some level gratifying, but we shouldn’t have someone verbally bullying the Heel and still be a Face. Nakamura VS Corbin again in a qualifier next week is surely so Corbin can get back to winning on some level, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they used it to just pile on him more.

Zelina Vega returning is quite the shock, given all the things that happened between her and WWE. And it’s anyone’s guess if this helps get Aleister Black/Tommy End back. Vega VS Liv was a good match but of course Liv won because she’s going to keep in this until it comes down to the fourth and final spot. Otis getting the last match of the night, essentially the main event, is great for him. He manhandled Dawkins far more than I expected, and at this rate, he might bypass the tag titles to go for the Intercontinental Championship. The Mysterios still need to make a kayfabe physical recovery, but they might not stand a chance in a rematch with this Otis.

My Score: 8.4/10

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show?

Mark shoves Buddy to where the flamethrower is!! But then security swarms him before he can get the switch! The House regroups and retreats before facing disaster! Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cover, Dante wins!!

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

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

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

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

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

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

 

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

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

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

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again.

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10
