JOHN CENA returns to SmackDown!

And Cleveland is fired up to see him! Cena goes right to the ring and he fires up with the WWE Universe! Cena wants to make sure everyone at home can see everyone live at the Rocket Mortgage Arena! “MAN you are amped up tonight! And I understand, I understand, it’s been one hell of a week.” A big surprise at Money in the Bank, Cena was so excited he had to go to Raw and answer some burning questions. Such as: How did Cena escape the Firefly Funhouse dimension? How many Peacemaker costumes did Cena steal? And is Cena the only guy left the WWE can call “to chin check that lifeless egomaniac, Roman Reigns?”

Yes, Cena is challenging Roman Reigns to a WWE Universal Championship match at SummerSlam. The fans fire up and Cena knows they’re excited and why. Cleveland knows that this is SmackDown! And everyone here knows we’re just a few heartbeats away from Cena VS Roman face-to-face in the ring right here, right now! And Cena couldn’t think of a better place to do this, either! Big sports news today outta Cleveland, too. Fans sound a bit sour, but Cena says he went to the Cleveland Government Office, and legally changed his name. Cena made his middle name, “Guardians,” because someone needs to protect the small amount of respect the WWE has left!

That’s because SmackDown with Roman as champion SUCKS! Now that’s just Cena’s opinion. He knows that there are hundreds of Roman Reigns fans somewhere. Hard to tell here, but Cena is sure they’re somewhere. But those fans deserve to stand up and be heard. Everyone deserves to stand up and be heard! No more ThunderDome, no more LED Zoom calls! There is noise on each and every side of this arena! And that’s what the people understand! SummerSlam is not just a match for the Universal Championship, no no. “It is a chance for all of us to stand up for what we believe in. What do you believe in? Whose team are you on?!”

Fans get loud as they duel, but there are “CENA! CENA!” chants, loud and proud. So are they Team Jorts? Fans do cheer. Are they on Team Cargo Pants? Fans do boo. So are they Team Hustle, Loyalty & Respect? Or are they the team fans always reject? Are you Team Cena or Team Reigns? Speaking of, where IS Roman? Oh, Cena knows Roman can’t see him! And after SummerSlam, he’ll realize that the CHAMP! IS! HERE! Fans are definitely on Cena’s side and he wants them to keep going to get Roman to come out to the ring! Make this happen, everyone! C’mon out, Roman! They wait, but still no Roman.

Please come out, Roman Reigns? Instead, we get, “Ladies and gentlemen, things that live in Cleveland, John… Cena… You have it all… wrong-uh!” Roman can’t see Cena? No, Roman can’t hear Cena, because Cena’s simply not worthy listening to. Now now, don’t get panties in a bunch, John. Heyman himself gives Cena his word that tonight, Cena will get an answer to the challenge, but only when Roman Reigns decides to come out and show Cena and everyone here live tonight that the TRIBAL CHIEF is… here!! BRrRrRrRrRrRrRr! DU DUDU DUUUU! DU DUDU DUUUU! Heyman mocks Cena all the way to the back, but will Cena get what he wants?

 

Finn Balor VS Sami Zayn!

The Prince returned to SmackDown last week and got to shut the Great Liberator up as a bonus! But now, Sami gets a chance at retribution! Will there be any conspiracy at work in The Land? Or will Balor get to go back to back on shutting Sami up?

SmackDown returns and Sami makes his entrance. The bell rings, the two circle and feel out the grapple. They tie up, Balor waistlocks but Sami moves around. Balor blocks the switch so Sami elbows out! Sami wrenches an arm, grinds the shoulder, pulls on an ear but the ref reprimands. Sami wristlocks, Balor fights up, rolls and hooks a leg, but Sami wrangles him down. Sami has a cording hold, Balor kips up and wrenches to wristlock back. Balor wrenches again, and again, but Sami ROCKS him with a right hand! Sami brings Balor to ropes to scrape his face on the ropes! The ref reprimands, Sami CLUBS Balor, then ground ‘n’ pounds!

Sami lets off, drags Balor up to throw him out of the ring, then goes out after him with big right hands! Fans boo but Sami talks trash at them to ROCK Balor again. Sami puts Balor in the ring at 7 of 10, but Balor trips Sami up! Balor fires off and fans fire up! Balor stomps away at the ropes, lets off and flexes. Fans fire up more as Balor kicks and throws Sami out. Balor builds speed to FLY! Direct hit at the ramp and Balor shows finger guns as we go to break!

SmackDown returns again and Balor jawbreakers free of a chinlock! Balor throws forearms, runs, but dodges, only for Sami to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Balor stays in this and fans fire up as Sami throws clubbing crossface forearms! Sami wraps on a chinlock, fans chant, “SAMI SUCKS! SAMI SUCKS!” Balor fights up, Sami knees low, and again. Sami says, “Who sucks now?” Sami puts Balor in a corner but Balor boots him back! Balor grits his teeth but Sami kicks low to DDT! Sami smirks as he gets up and aims from a corner. Balor gets up in a corner, Sami runs in, but Balor SLINGBLADES first!

Fans are thunderous as Balor gets Sami up, only for Sami to swing! Balor ducks, and gets Sami for an ELBOW DROP DDT! Balor aims from a corner now, aims finger guns, but runs into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Balor survives and fans rally up behind him. Sami thinks of what to do and he drags Balor up. Sami brings Balor to a corner, but Balor blocks the Exploder! Sami throws elbows down again and again! But still Balor blocks! Balor fires off elbows then RAMS Sami into the corner again and again! Balor lets off as the ref counts, and Balor runs in, into the EX- NO! Victory roll, DOUBLE STOMPS! Balor aims, SHOTGUN DROPKICK!

Sami flounders, Balor keeps going, ANOTHER SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Sami is in a drop zone now, Balor goes up top! COUP DE GRACE!! Cover, Balor wins!

Winner: Finn Balor, by pinfall

First match back, first win back on SmackDown! Balor wants gold, what belt will he be aimed at first?

 

Backstage interview with Baron Corbin.

Even more of a mess than last week, Corbin’s crowd funding charity website has made… Nothing! He’s lost money! The guy who made the site for him just ghosted Corbin! And then he used Corbin’s credit card number to ruin his credit score! Corbin rode the bus here! Has Kayla ever been on a public bus? It smells like bad cheese and gym socks! Corbin asks, “What’s happened to me?” Corbin sulks away, will he ever turn his fortunes around?

 

Big E heads to the ring!

The 2021 Mr. Money in the Bank is here in Cleveland and fans are fired up to see him! And he’s here to go big, after the break.

SmackDown returns and Big E has the mic to say, “CLEVELAAAAND~!” Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” and Big E takes it all in. He appreciates that, and says Sunday, 7/18/21, is a night he will never forget. “I was hurled through the air, I had grown men dive onto me, I jumped off a ladder! I have no business jumping off of ladders!” But when Big E made that final climb and saw that briefcase and earned the contract- He gets interrupted by Apollo Crews! The WWE Intercontinental Champion and Commander Azeez sarcastically congratulate Big E. Big E overcame the odds, shocked the world and won a title contract!

Apollo laughs. This isn’t the same as actually winning a title like Apollo did when he beat Big E at WrestleMania. But wait, the Dirty Dawgs are interrupting now? Dolph Ziggler is Ohio’s own, and he’s telling everyone to stop! If they want to talk about the Intercontinental Championship, they better talk about him and Robert Roode, the Dirty Dawgs! “Tell ’em, big man!” Roode gets the mic and barely gets started when RICK BOOGS interrupts! And the rockin’ bard of course introduces KING Nakamura! Fans sing along with the theme song as Shinsuke heads to the ring! And now CESARO joins in!

The Swiss Superman says no more talking! He wants the title, and it’s SWING TIME in Cleveland! But then the brawling breaks out in the ring! The Dawgs are after Nakamura, Apollo is after Big E, and Azeez smiles as his leader is- Wait, Big E throws Apollo out! Azeez goes after Big E, Cesaro goes after Ziggler and throws the Show-Off out! Nakamura ENZIGURIS Roode out, he and Cesaro get Azeez away from Big E, but Azeez choke grips both of them! They kick back, and fire off a EuroUpper and ROUNDHOUSE! Big E clotheslines Azeez out of the ring! Apollo returns, but runs into a SWING!!

Cesaro only goes for 5 to throw Apollo out, and the battle lines are drawn! Ziggler says, “Not tonight!” But if not now, then when?!

 

SmackDown goes live to Rolling Loud!

“Yo yo yo yo~!” Wale welcomes the fans at Miami Gardens and says they’re in for a treat tonight. Hopefully the people here know who he is. Make some noise! Now bring out his homies. Call and response. When he says, “We Want the Smoke,” they echo it back. WE WANT THE SMOKE! WE WANT THE SMOKE! Alright, let’s get to it! The Street Profits are up in Miami, but will they be rolling loud?

Angelo Dawkins w/ Montez Ford VS Chad Gable w/ Otis!

SmackDown returns as The Alpha Academy has already entered the ring. The bell rings, Gable and Dawkins circle. They feel it out but Otis swipes at Dawkins! Dawkins swipes back but Gable clobbers him! Gable fires off clubbing forearms, whips him to ropes, but Dawkins hurdles and back elbows! And then dropkicks! Gable swings but into the BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Dawkins is fired up as Gable gets to the apron! Dawkins gets Gable up, suplexes, but Gable slips out and throat chops! Gable CHOPS Dawkins in the corner, throat chops again, then says, “For the Academy!” Gable whips Dawkins corner to corner, but Dawkins blocks the monkey flip to put Gable up top!

Dawkins swings but Gable catches it to a HANGING ARMBAR! Gable lets off, climbs up top, and leaps to FLYING CLOTHESLINE! Cover, TWO! Gable keeps cool as he gets the bad arm and JAMS it! And again! And then SLAMS the arm on the mat! Gable says, “For the Academy!” but Wale and the fans boo. Gable gets Dawkins up, hammerlocks and NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Dawkins survives but Gable keeps cool as he gets Dawkins back up. Gable mounts the armlock, Dawkins endures the grind but Gable wrenches. Dawkins fights up but Gable spins around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Dawkins is still in this and Gable is annoyed.

Gable goes to a corner, climbs up top, and MOONSAULTS! But Dawkins moves! Gable lands on his feet but is thrown out of the ring! Gable gets in but Dawkins CLOBBERS him! CYCLONE in the corner! Gable dodges the bulldog to ROLLING KICK! Dawkins hits buckles on the way down! Gable runs in but Dawkins DECKS him! Dawkins covers, TWO! Ford is fired up for Dawkins as he puts Gable up top, but Gable throws elbows. Gable rolls back, runs, swings and backslides, TWO! Dawkins gets Gable up, THE ANOINTING! Cover, Dawkins wins!

Winner: Angelo Dawkins, by pinfall

And Rolling Loud is… Mildly fired up for that one. But this is big for the return of the Profits! Will they be able to settle things with the Alpha Academy soon enough? But wait, here comes The EST! Bianca Belair struts her way along the catwalk because she’s ready to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship! Will Rolling Loud wild out for this rematch from last week?

 

SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair VS Carmella!

SmackDown returns and the (self-proclaimed) Most Beautiful Woman in the World makes her entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and these two run it back at Rolling Loud!

Bianca and Mella circle, tie up, and Mella rolls Bianca! ONE, Bianca rolls Mella, ONE! The two stand off and talk a little smack as they circle again. Mella kicks low, throws Bianca by her hair, then pushes Bianca around. Mella fires off hands in the corner, the ref counts and Mella lets off. Mella brings Bianca to whip, but Bianca goes up and over and handsprings and climbs up to tell Mella to kiss this! Bianca then jumps over Mella to dropkick her down! Fans fire up as Bianca tells Mella to kiss this again! Bianca runs in, Mella hotshots her away! Mella gets in, dodges, tilt-o-whirls and hits a MELLA-GO-ROUND! Bianca gets up and runs Mella right over!

Bianca is the steadiEST woman in WWE, and she gets Mella up. Mella grabs ropes to escape the KOD but then Bianca DECKS her! Fans fire up as Bianca is on the apron, but Mella blocks a kick, spins Bianca and throws her down! Cover, TWO! Mella keeps on Bianca with a chinlock and grinds Bianca down. Bianca endures, fights up, but Mella clubs Bianca as she holds on! Bianca gets loose to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Mella goes to a corner, Bianca runs in but Mella trips her into buckles! Mella goes corner to corner to run in but Bianca puts her on the apron. Fans want ASAP Rocky as Mella ROCKS Bianca and climbs up to CROSSBODY!

But Bianca rolls through! Bianca FALL AWAY SLAMS Mella! Bianca kips up, fires up, and she gets Mella with clubbing forearms! Bianca stomps Mella, then handsprings to MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Mella survives but Bianca gets her up. Mella jawbreakers back! Mella reels Bianca in but Bianca blocks the suplex to suplex back! Bianca holds Mella up but Mella fights free to FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Bianca survives and Mella can’t believe it! Bianca gets up, Mella mule kicks her then FAB- NO! Bianca blocks, spins and boots, but Mella dodges! Mella comes back but Bianca ROCKS her! Bianca torture racks to the KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall (still SmackDown Women’s Champion)

The EST is rolling loud in Miami and she struts on the catwalk again, with pyro to celebrate! Will Bianca be rolling all the way into SummerSlam to rock Vegas just as hard?

 

Shotzi Blackheart & Tegan Nox work on the TCB tank.

Kevin Owens seems to be helping out in his own way. He suggests hitting this part with that big hammer. They did! A few times. Oh, well, sorry. Good luck with the cannon. Kevin heads out, but then bumps into Corbin. Corbin says, “Look man. I wanna apologize about last week. I’m in a bad place.” Corbin didn’t mean to insult Kevin’s dress or appearance. It’s a bad habit. It is! A bad habit of being a jerk! And it’s been a habit for like 8 years! Corbin can’t actually be surprised if no one feels bad for him. Corbin brought all that on himself. Corbin admits that and is really struggling. But he feels Kevin really can help him. Can Kevin forgive him?

Is that the same shirt from last week? No, it’s another one just like it, but he also got a stain on it, too… Spaghetti O’s from a can are tricky. Kevin does feel bad, and he gives Corbin the $20 he had in his wallet. Try not to be a jerk to people maybe though? Thank you, Kevin, this can do a lot right now. Kevin heads out, and now the cannon works, because it shoots the Nerf missile into Corbin’s lone wolf! And the Dirty Dawgs snatch the 20!! Kevin runs them off, but the damage is done. What will it take for Corbin to get past all this misfortune?

 

EDGE is here!!

The Rated R Superstar may not have won at Money in the Bank, but Cleveland still loves seeing him! And he’ll respond to why he didn’t win at MITB, after the break.

SmackDown returns and Edge has a mic as he stands on the corner. He hops down to say, “Oooh, Cleveland! You have no idea what those reactions do for me.” Edge says there’s a lot of history here and they surely know it. They know what he’s done, how hard he’s fought to get THIS back. They know how hard he fought to get them back! And if you watched MITB, you know he should be our Universal Champion. But he’s not, and there’s one reason why: Seth Rollins. Edge thought he had all the bases covered. The Mysterios watched his back for the inevitability of the Usos, but he didn’t know Rollins would make his presence known.

Hell, Edge thought Rollins might go after Roman, to make things easier in facing Edge. He’d be wrong about that, but that’s what Edge thought would happen. But then Edge realized, this is bigger than that. This goes back to 2014 when they first met. “You didn’t pull the trigger then to get the job done, because you never thought I’d be back here. But now, I am back here! And I’m in your way.” Rollins has no idea the Pandora’s Box of violence and pain he has opened! Fans cheer for that as Edge says he learned from the most evil minds in this industry! The Brood! The Ministry of Darkness! Rollins has no idea the depths that Edge will sink to to get the job done! But he’ll find out.

“BURN IT DOWN~!” Rollins makes his entrance to interrupt Edge’s warning! “Did somebody say mah name?” Rollins laughs and says it’s Grandpa Edge, talking about the man he used to be! HAHAHAHAH! Rollins laughs it up but Edge tells him to shut up. Rollins is embarrassing himself. Why not come down to the ring? Edge promises he won’t hit him, it’ll just be a talk. Rollins knows Edge isn’t as stupid as he looks. Edge wouldn’t dare put his hands on Rollins, knowing what Rollins can do to him. But, full disclosure, Rollins was gonna talk about how much he despises Cleveland, and how much he despises people like Edge, and John Cena, who wanna just come back whenever, jump the line, take opportunities from those like Rollins, people who have earned those opportunities.

Hey, hear him out! Fans are booing but Rollins says he was going to talk about all that, but he more he thought about it, the more he agrees with Cleveland! It is great to have Edge out here in Rollins’ ring. Give it up for gramps! Rollins is thrilled Edge can’t keep his name out of his mouth. Edge has been “such a scumbag to me.” Nothing would make Rollins happier than to crush Edge’s dreams. Nothing would make Rollins happier than to ruin the comeback story! But if Edge keeps pushing Rollins, and pushing and pushing and pushing him, when they talk about Edge’s HOF career, they won’t talk about Edge but the man who ended him: SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS!

Rollins says he had a chance to end Edge 7 years ago when he brought the Authority back, but he hesitated. Fans chant, “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” and Rollins just soaks it up. Rollins says he hesitated then. But when he gets that opportunity again, boot on the back of Edge’s surgically repaired neck… Rollins won’t hesitate to pull the trigger. BANG. HAHAHAHA! Bang bang, pop pop, poof goes Edge, up in smoke! Edge asks if Rollins remembers what he said about not hitting him. “I’m a liar.” Edge DECKS Rollins! Edge rains down rights, Rollins gets up to RAM Edge into a corner, but Edge fires off more hands! Fans are fired up but Rollins hammers Edge down!

Rollins stomps away on Edge, throws off his baby blue jacket, then runs in, only to get an EDGE-O-CUTION!! Fans fire up as Rollins flounders up and around. Edge aims, and Rollins bails out before the Spear can hit! Fans boo but Edge grabs the jacket to pull at it. Will the Rated R Superstar make sure Rollins never even gets close to pulling that trigger?

 

Toni Storm VS Zelina Vega!

It was #ToniTime in NXT UK, and #ToniTime2 for a moment in NXT. But now #ToniTime3 could get started right here tonight in The Land! Will La Muneca make sure the Lighting From Down Under doesn’t strike?

The bell rings and the two tie right up. Vega headlocks, Toni powers out but Vega kicks her. Toni kicks but Vega blocks and gets around, but Toni BOOTS her down! Fans fire up as Toni runs in to SLIDING CLOTHESLINE at the ropes! Vega bails out, Toni pursues, but Vega throws her into the desk! Vega puts Toni in, stomps a mudhole into her, then soaks up the heat. Vega runs in to KICK Toni down, then runs again to KNEE her down! Cover, TWO! Toni is tougher than that but Vega keeps going. Toni blocks the tilt-o-whirl and HEADBUTTS her down! Vega gets to a corner, Toni to the other. Fans rally up for Toni as she gets up and runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK!

Toni drags Vega up to GERMAN SUPLEX, bridging cover, TWO!! Vega survives but Toni gets her back up to underhook! Vega wrenches out, kicks the leg and hops on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Vega can’t believe Toni survives but she stomps and kicks Toni at the ropes. The ref counts, Vega lets off, but Toni fireman’s carries! Vega slips out, Toni switches, Vega switches back. The belt comes off as Vega ripcords Toni! Toni hits the RUBY CUTTER!! Cover, Toni wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

The #Storm1 helps Toni get win number one! But will this just be one of many now that SmackDown is on #ToniTime?

 

Jimmy Uso VS Jey Uso VS Dominik Mysterio w/ Rey Mysterio!

The Bloodline is golden, but that doesn’t mean this is over between them and the Mysterios! Will Jimmy be #NobodysBitch and show Rey’s baby boy isn’t ready for the Uso Penitentiary?

SmackDown returns as father and son make their entrance. The bell rings and Dom fires off on Jimmy! Dom has Jimmy in a corner, the ref has him let off, and Jimmy headlocks. Dom powers out, Jimmy runs him over. Jimmy seethes, things speed up, but Dom hurdles and hip tosses Jimmy down! Dom dropkicks Jimmy, throws haymakers, then knuckle locks and CHOPS! Dom goes up and up but Jimmy trips him up! Jimmy mule kicks Dom down, then whips him corner to corner. Dom hits off buckles, falls back, and Jimmy hurries to cover, TWO! Jimmy keeps on Dom and pushes him to the ropes. Jimmy chokes Dom but the ref counts and Jimmy lets off.

Fans rally and duel, Jimmy gets Dom up but Dom throws haymakers! Jimmy kicks, Dom blocks but Jimmy DRAGON WHIPS! Cover, TWO! Rey rallies for Dom but Jimmy grins at him. Jimmy gets Dom up, wraps on a chinlock and grinds Dom down. Fans rally as Dom fights up and throws body shots. Jimmy shoves Dom, Dom kicks and wheelbarrows to throw Jimmy onto ropes! Dom dials it up, but Jey helps Jimmy get away! Fans boo but the Usos start leaving. Rey LEAPS and seated sentons Jey! Dom goes up and out and PLANCHAS Jimmy! The fans fire up with the Mysterio Family as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Jimmy whips but Dom dodges to NECKBREAKER! Jimmy goes to a corner, Dom runs in but is put on the apron. Dom hotshots Jimmy back! Dom gets up, and slingshot sentons! Fans fire up as Dom watches Jimmy stand. Dom kicks, reels Jimmy in and shouts out to Eddie! Uno Amigo! Roll, DOS- Nope! Jimmy wrenches and ENZIGURIS! Fans boo as Jimmy mocks Latino Heat. Jimmy runs in but Dom chop blocks him into ropes! Dom dials it up and hits 619! Dom hurries up top, but Jey distracts! Rey trips Jey, Dom leaps, into a SUPERKICK! Jimmy covers, TWO!! Dom survives and Jimmy can’t believe it!

Jey CLOBBERS Rey, Jimmy gets Dom up. Jimmy fireman’s carries but Dom slips off to O’Conner Roll, TWO! Dom WRECKS Jey with a dropkick, ROCKS Jey with a forearm, slingshots in but Jimmy blocks the arm-drag to haul Dom up! Fireman’s carry but Dom sunset flips! But Jimmy sits, and Jey uses the same trick as MITB!! Jimmy wins!!

Winner: Jimmy Uso, by pinfall

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions find the same cheat that won them the titles! And now, Roman Reigns makes his way out! The Usos stand at attention as the Head of the Table walks on stage. Roman is handed his title from Heyman, and the Bloodline raises all their belts for the pyro! Roman will respond to John Cena’s challenge, after the break.

 

SmackDown returns, and Roman is in the ring.

Heyman hands him the Universal Championship belt back to raise it again for the second round of pyro. Heyman then fetches a mic and hands it to Roman. Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Roman ignores that. “Cleveland, acknowledge me.” They don’t seem to. But Roman tells us sitting at home to acknowledge him. “You might as well. Everybody’s acknowledging me. As a matter of fact, John Cena has acknowledged me.” Cena acknowledge Roman at MITB, and on Raw, and here tonight. And to be honest, Roman wanted to acknowledge John back. He did. He really, really did. But “Hollywood fooled me!

“They put a whole new paint job on John! I thought we were gonna get something new, I thought we were gonna get something special. But what happened at Money in the Bank?” Cena came out putting on a nostalgia act! It’s the same thing! The same music, same entrance, same run to the ring, same outfit, same promo, same insults! If Roman wanted all that, all he had to look online for 2005 Cena! It’s the same thing over and over, like missionary position every single night! The Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table, he ain’t interested in that. He isn’t inspired by that! So yeah, John, you’re right. Roman can’t see you, and he doesn’t WANT to see Cena!

So guess where we’re not seeing Cena? The main event of SummerSlam. Because the answer to Cena’s challenge is no. Fans boo but Heyman holds up the title, and BALOR comes out!? The Prince walks right to the ring and Roman says that Heyman told him that Balor is here “to follow suit, to do as John Cena does, and acknowledge me.” Balor smirks, and says, “I’m not here to acknowledge you. But if you’re not interested in John Cena’s challenge, maybe you’re interested in mine.” Fans like the sound of that! Roman laughs until he hears the “Let’s Go Balor!” and “YES! YES! YES!” chants. Roman and Heyman talk it over quickly while fans chant, “Roman’s Scared~!”

Roman gets mad hearing those chants, and says, “You think I’m afraid of him?!” Roman takes a moment, and says, “Challenge accepted.” WHOOOOA~! The Tribal Chief is going to take on The Prince for the first time in a long time, and it’ll be in Vegas! Will the current Universal Champion make the original Universal Champion acknowledge him?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode of SmackDown, but I feel I was a little justified in thinking a dual location was yet again a mistake. While Dawkins VS Gable was a good match, and Bianca VS Mella was pretty good, it was all wasted on a crowd that mostly didn’t care. They were at a music festival, they wanted music, not wrestling. This all seemed like WWE desperately trying to branch out to the mainstream but once again going about it all wrong. For that matter, I’m a bit torn on what we just saw at the end there. On one hand, I am so excited that Balor is going to be fighting for the Universal Championship at the PPV he originally won it.

On the other, Roman VS Cena seemed like the match that the mainstream fans would’ve come around for. But I would love if Balor suddenly became the guy that beat the Tribal Chief. Or at the very least, he and Roman should battle so hard that it leaves Roman open to a cash-in by Big E, even though Big E going to Raw would fully reunite the New Day and many fans would like that. Speaking of, there originally was meant to be Big E VS Apollo but seems that changed so that there could be a lot of teasing of great Intercontinental Championship match-ups. I feel like if Otis wasn’t sent to Rolling Loud to simply watch Gable lose, Otis would’ve been in on this, too. Maybe SummerSlam gives us something epic for this title now that fans are back to react to everything.

Balor VS Sami was a great opener, and it’s great that WWE didn’t waste time with a promo or anything. Fans who saw last week understand immediately that these two would face off. Fans who perhaps missed it and just didn’t go looking things up don’t even need a reason to see Balor VS Sami cuz it’s just good stuff! I liked what we got out of Kevin and Corbin backstage, with Kevin poking tiny holes in kayfabe to make the resulting kayfabe even goofier. Corbin is running out of matching shirts cuz of the stains on them, and then he gets Nerf’d to the nuts. I questioned Tegan suddenly jumping into “I’m a tank engineer,” but at least we got a nut shot. Also, the Dirty Dawgs being bigger jerks to the big jerk, I feel like WWE really is trying to Face turn Corbin, but I doubt it’ll really work.

We got a great segment out of Edge and Rollins, especially with them making the best out of the honestly controversial moment they’re talking about from 2013. Rollins trying to kayfabe cripple Edge is now going to kayfabe bite him in the ass, but there is a chance Rollins gets the win in the end. Maybe just straight up cheating and then he has Edge in the same position as 8 years ago, but Edge gets him with a Spear and stands tall, even in losing the match. Then we were obviously going to see Toni Storm win, and by default, that loss goes to Vega. Liv is strong with the fans, Toni can’t pin the tag champs while they’ve got contenders coming for them, and there’s just no one else on SmackDown right now. Toni is Face right now but I was really digging her Heel persona, maybe she switches quick so she can challenge Bianca for the title at SummerSlam or something.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

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 Willie Mack, 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 The Mack, 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? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin. Austin headlocks, grinds the hold, Sonjay offers fist bumps to the commentary team. Zay slips around to headlock Austin but Austin powers out. Zay ducks ‘n’ dodges and squealing DROPKICKS! Zay kips up and the fans join in on “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Things speed up, Zay whips but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges, then he BOOTS Zay down! Austin says “SHOTS! SHOTS!” and the fans join in! Zay is annoyed, he swings but misses and Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and two-steps to DECK Zay!

The fans fire up while Bowens covers, TWO! Bowens says guns up, and then he brings Quen around. Tag to Colten, they mug Quen and Colten clamps onto an arm. Quen fights up, pulls hair, and he puts Colten on the ropes. The ref counts, Quen lets off, but Lethal HOTSHOTS Colten! Quen DROPKICKS Colten down! Fans boo but Quen tags in Jarrett. They mug Colten, and Double J stomps Colten to ropes. Jarrett runs, pulling the ref’s attention, which allows Karen to CHOKE Colten before the STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo more as Jarrett starts up the Fargo Strut, and everyone on his team joins in on the outside!

Jarrett stomps Colten around then tags in Lethal. Jarrett whips Colten to kick low, Lethal hits the SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Lethal soaks up the heat, kicks at Austin, then goes back to Colten. Tag to Mack and the fans finally have reason to cheer. Mack whips and LARIATS Colten down! Mack keeps Colten from BBSG, then tags in Quen. Quen drops knees, and fans actually chant, “Let’s Go, Colten!” Colten endures, fights up, but Quen snapmares him down. Tag to Kassidy for the slingshot SENTON! Zay then taunts BBSG before he stomps away on Colten. Zay clamps on a chinlock but Colten endures.

The fans rally, Colten fights up, and he throws body shots! Colten gets free but Zay CLUBS him! Zay kicks, Colten blocks, but he gets the DRAGON WHIP! Tag to Quen and Private Party coordinate. Quen is the stepstool, Zay runs up, but Colten dodges! Party in Motion hits the rest of the team! Zay & Quen panic, they get Colten’s legs but he BOOTS them away! Hot tag to Bowens! The Five Tool Player rallies on Private Party! ROLLING ELBOW for Quen, ROLLING ELBOW for Zay! Lethal runs in but he gets Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK! Bowens ROCKS Quen to run and FAMOUSER BULLDOG!

The fans fire up as White sets Satnam up for a FAMOUSER!! Mack returns to SUPERKICK Billy! White gets Mack again, BLADERUNNER!!! Cover, BBSG wins!!

Winners: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

#TriplePartyJay tried to use the numbers game, but not even they could stop this super six pack from flexing their guns! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions stand tall together once again, and White gets the mic. “Yo! Yo! YO!” White is copying Max as he says, “Listen! See, Max? It’s not that hard. Oh yeah, guns up for my Greensboro Gold Members~!” Now, White is always telling the gang about how much he loves Greensboro. It’s one of his favorite cities in the world! The fans appreciate that, and White continues to say that Greensboro has some of the greatest wrestling fans!

The fans again cheer, and White says hey, what better place to have an event like Revolution? And there’s a lot of action tonight! Will Ospreay is here! Who walks out the AEW World Champion? Fans chant “JOE! JOE! JOE!” so that answers that. Oh oh oh oh, who is ready for Sting’s last match, huh? The fans sure are! A very big night, kicking off the biggest way possible with the Bang! Bang! Scissor! Gang! The two best trios, the single best six man team, and the GREATEST faction in the GREATEST wrestling company, AEW! The fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and White says BBSG is led by one of the greatest of all time.

White can remind any of us, that on any given day, at any given moment, just who he is. He’ll remind us why he is the Catalyst of Pro-Wrestling! He’ll remind us to Breathe with the Switchblade! The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that. But until then, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed. And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

 

Zero Hour – Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Julia Hart & Skye Blue!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power have been meaning to settle things with the Princess of the Black Throne and her little sidekick for some time, so no better time than Revolution! Will Kris & Willow crush the TBS Champion and Chicago Skye? Or will Greensboro see The House Always Wins?

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!

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

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

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

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

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

 

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

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

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

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

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

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

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally as the two tie up and ago around. Golden shoves Rosa away, but Rosa shrugs that off. Golden runs in but Rosa gets her in a facelock! Rosa throws knees into Golden, but Golden powers up to throw Rosa away! Golden runs up, Rosa dodges the boot to BOOT Golden! Rosa eggs Golden on, then CHOPS her! And LARIATS her! Rosa fires up and the fans are with her! Rosa kicks Golden around, asks who is questioning her return, then bumps Golden off buckles. Rosa CHOPS, then CHOPS again! The fans fire up as Rosa stands Golden up and CHOPS again! Rosa then brings Golden around, fireman’s carries, but Golden fights free!

Golden ROCKS Rosa and Rosa staggers to a corner. Golden runs in, but Rosa dodges to SHOTGUN Golden down! The fans fire up and Rosa runs corner to corner to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Rosa pushes Golden out of the corner, climbs up the corner, and she DOUBLE DIVING STOMPS! Golden writhes but Rosa still keeps on her! COBRA CLUTCH STRETCH! Golden taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

That’s a new twist to La Mera Mera’s arsenal! And she says it’s story time! “I’m still here, right? La Mera Mera hasn’t left. I know you wanna push me aside, but I won’t back down. Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

The fans boo but Roddy stares Garcia down. Garcia stands, they tie up, and go around. Garcia puts Roddy in a corner, the ref counts, and Garcia lets off slowly, to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Garcia whips corner to corner, runs up and clotheslines, then brings Roddy in! Garcia lifts but Cage makes the save! So Garcia fires shots on Cage! Cage takes a swing but Garcia ducks, and Hook is there to ROCK Cage! They pinball Cage around, then Roddy runs in. Garcia sends Roddy into Cage, then UPPERCUTS Roddy! Garcia feeds Roddy to Hook’s SAYANAGI! The young studs fist bump and the fans cheer.

The ref wants someone to get in, so Killswitchasaurus and Captain Charisma step up! Cage also joins in, but then Cassidy & Trent back Hook and Garcia up! The fans fire up for the stare down, Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone cool off, but Christian still swipes at Garcia. Garcia kicks at Christian but this boils back down to just Garcia and Roddy. Roddy tags Cage back in, he circles with Garcia. They tie up, Cage RAMS Garcia into a corner! And again, and again! Cage then CHOPS Garcia while Prince Nana talks trash. Cage soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner, but Garcia BOOTS him! Cage tries again but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Cage hits buckles, Garcia does his dance! Then Garcia BOOT WASHES Cage halfway out the ring! Garcia drags Cage up, UPPERCUTS him, then whips Cage to ropes. Cage reverses and Christian gets a cheap shot in!

Garcia swings on Christian but Christian scurries away, and then Cage CLOBBERS Garcia! Cage tags Roddy and Roddy drags Garcia up to CHOP him in a corner. And CHOP again! Roddy brings Garcia around, tags in Luchasaurus, and they mug Garcia. Luchasaurus scoops to SNAKE EYES Garcia, then runs to CLOBBER him! Luchasaurus stays between Garcia and his team, then drags Garcia up. Luchasaurus TOSSES Garcia to the corner, fires off body shots and an UPPERCUT, then tags in Christian. Now the Patriarch of AEW wants after Garcia, and he CHOKES Garcia against ropes as Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Cage has Garcia in an open corner. Cage whips corner to corner, gets the Terminator drums started, then runs in. Cage blocks a boot to ROCK Garcia! Cage then scoops Garcia, but Garcia slips fere to shove him into the corner! Garcia climbs up on Cage and he rains down fists! The fans count along, but Cage shoves Garcia down at 6! Cage then drags Garcia up for the deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cage shouts, “Who betta than Cage?!” Fans boo but Cage tags Roddy. Roddy deadlifts Garcia for a BACKBREAKER! Roddy stomps Garcia, tags Christian, and they stomp Garcia together while fans boo.

Christian keeps Garcia from his team, puts him back int he corner and CHOPS! Tag back to Roddy, he CHOPS Garcia! Roddy CHOPS again, then tags Cage. The stomping resumes, and then Cage drags Garcia up. Cage RAMS Garcia into the corner, RAMS him again, then soaks up the heat. But Garcia fires off hands on the rest! Luchasaurus grabs Garcia by the neck, but Garcia HOTSHOTS the arm! Fans fire up, Cage runs in, but Garcia leaps at him! Cage picks Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia DDT COUNTERS! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Hot tag to Roddy and he hurries, but hot tag to Trent!

Trent rallies on Roddy as revenge for what The Undisputed Kingdom has been up to! Roddy swings, Trent dodges to METEORA! Christian gets in, but he gets a GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent holds on, GERMAN SUPLEX again! Then the HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up as Trent dodges Roddy and gives him a TORNADO DDT! Trent builds speed and he DIVES, into Luchasaurus’ hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM! Trent flops back down and Luchasaurus snarls. Roddy and Christian regroup with the team as Luchasaurus puts Trent in. Roddy stomps Trent, then digs his boot in. Trent goes to the apron but Roddy uses that to ROPE GUILLOTINE!

The fans boo and Trent flounders, but Collision again goes picture in picture.

Trent sputters, but Cage stomps him on the apron! The ref is too busy with Trent’s team as they protest so Cage gets away with that. Luchasaurus then CHOPS Trent in a corner! And ROCKS him! And stomps him! Luchasaurus drags Trent up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Trent tumbles up and out to the floor! Luchasaurus roars, Trent sputters, and the ref is busy with Cassidy so Christian gets a cheap shot in! Roddy wants one but the ref is paying attention to them by then. Luchasaurus fetches Trent into the ring, then keeps him from his corner with a chinlock. Luchasaurus CLUBS away on Trent’s chest!

Luchasaurus drags Trent up, tags in Christian, and The Patriarchy mugs Trent. Christian snapmares Trent and then claws at Trents’ face! The ref reprimands, Christian lets off to stare Garcia down, but Garcia almost gets a shot in! Christian taunts Garcia, brings Trent up, but Trent throws a forearm! Christian ROCKS Trent in return, then clamps on a SLEEPER! Trent sputters and Collision returns to single picture as the fans rally up. Trent fights as Christian squeezes tight, and Trent throws body shots! The fans fire up as Trent runs, but into a kick! Then a REVERSE DDT! Fans boo but Christian goes up a corner.

The fans fire up while both men are down! Trent and Christian crawl, their teams reach out, hot tag to Roddy, and he CLOBBERS Trent to deny Cassidy! The fans boo as Roddy mocks the hands up and hands into pockets. Trent crawls while Roddy gives him the “devastating” kicks a la Cassidy.

It is still chaos up and down and all around ringside, but will Christian survive Red Death to still be TNT Champion? Does Cassidy stand a chance of retaining the International Championship when he can barely stand on his own two feet? All this and more will be answered tomorrow night at Revolution!


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
