PLAY BY PLAY

Drew McIntyre heads to the ring!

The Scottish Warrior has his claymore, Angela, as always as he walks down the ramp. San Francisco is fired up for the former WWE World Champion as he sheaths the sword and gets the mic. “Now it seems appropriate the the Scottish Warrior is kicking things off in the home of the Warriors.” And since he won’t get to do this for some time, he gives us an introduction to Monday Night Raw! We all know Crown Jewel is coming, the thrones are on the stage, there’s Roman VS Lesnar and a No Holds Barred in Goldberg VS Lashley, and then the match everyone will be talking about, McIntyre VS Big E. And why will they talk about it? Because McIntyre will once again become champion!

McIntyre tells Big E that he has waited months for this last opportunity at the title, and he won’t let it slip through his fingers. McIntyre has a story from earlier today, but Big E’s entrance cuts it off! Big E goes to the ring and San Fran is fired up again as he gets himself a mic. Big E tells Drew that he gets it. He understands why McIntyre wants to be WWE Champion so badly. Big E has tasted the spoils and oh are they sweet. So sweet that he lets the juices of that nectar drip down his chin to his neck and “betwixt my nipples.” Drew is a specimen! Incredibly accomplished! But he will never take the title from Big E.

Big E tells Drew’s train has left the station and he has two options. He can either jump onboard, “or your big sword wielding ass can stay on those railroad tracks and get run smooth over.” McIntyre says Big E talks about the spoils, the nectar, his nipples… That rush he feels every night, how he felt when he won the title and the fans went nuts, even when he walked out here just now! Remember that feeling? Feels damn good, doesn’t it. McIntyre is a two-time WWE Champion, of course Big E’s on cloud nine. McIntyre held the title for 300 days and yet, he still doesn’t know that great feeling.

McIntyre is damn proud of his time as champion, he led the WWE through uncertain times and loved every minute but he is still chasing his moment. That moment will be Crown Jewel. And just like McIntyre defeated Lesnar, Orton and Goldberg, he will run through Big E and win back HIS title, and there’s not a damn thing Big E can do about it! Big e and McIntyre talk trash without the mics, but here come the Usos?! Jimmy & Jey are still on SmackDown and are still SmackDown Tag Team Champions, but they want to watch this. Jimmy is pumped for this match! Who’s Jey got? Jey is rolling with Big E! Jimmy isn’t sure. If Drew Mac hits the Claymore, it might be a rap.

McIntyre asks, “Why the hell are you two even here?” They’re doing what they want cuz they roll with the Tribal Chief, the Head of the Table, Uce! The Bloodline got drafted to SmackDown, but they are now in your city! So tonight, there are warning shots! Check it, Uce. They and they mama knows that Roman beats Lesnar at Crown Jewel, 100! But what’s going on here is, who (Who who who) is gonna be WWE World Champion. Is it Big E? Or is it Drew McIntyre? Jey tells McIntyre to be careful, or else he’ll end up in the crosshairs of the Tribal Chief on SmackDown. He might add the world title to the trophy case.

As for Big E, the Usos already have plans for his bois, Kofi & Woods, once they’re on SmackDown. So if at Crown Jewel, Big E wins, it’s him and Roman at Survivor Series. And if that’s the case, Tribal Chief already said, he’s got the same death wish as the NEW~ DAY~ are facing. #WeTheOnes, Uce. Read the shirts. But Big E says no no no no. These two can’t come out bumping their gums and just walk away. Big E is sure he speaks on behalf of Drew- No, Big E cannot speak on behalf of Drew. Well damn, they’ll speak on behalf of the Tribal Chief. McIntyre & Big E VS The Usos, tonight! Big E and McIntyre both accept the challenge, but then they get jumped! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Fans are fired up as the Usos leave Big E and McIntyre in the ring! The Scottish Warrior and Powerhouse of Positivity get up, both angry at the Usos but angry at each other. If they’re to have their match tonight, can champion and challenger get along long enough to win?

 

Backstage interview with the New Day.

Kevin Patrick asks how they feel about both having matches in the King of the Ring Tournament, and how they could end up facing each other in the semifinals. Kofi and Woods just laugh it off and the music hits. They say bye and we will see how the answer unfolds!

King of the Ring Opening Round: Xavier Woods VS Ricochet!

Woods looks longingly at the throne and crown, but he has to take out the King of Flight first! Will Woods ground the One and Only? Or will his dream of being crowned end already?

Raw returns as Ricochet makes his entrance. The bell rings, the two fist bump then circle. They tie up, Ricochet waistlocks but Woods wants after an arm, only for Ricochet to get away. They reset, tie up, and now Ricochet wrenches the arm. Ricochet YANKS the arm, wristlocks, but Woods spins and wrenches back. Ricochet handsprings, wrenches, but Woods rolls and handsprings to wrench and whip. Ricochet reverses, Woods runs him over! Cover, ONE, but Woods clamps onto the arm. Woods throws elbows into the shoulder, then wrenches to a back suplex. Ricochet lands on his feet, waistlocks, but Woods switches.

Ricochet fights the lift, switches back but Woods elbows. Woods runs, but into a dropkick! Cover, ONE! Ricochet facelocks and then CLUBS Woods down. Ricochet KICKS Woods around, but Woods ROCKS Ricochet with a forearm! Ricochet comes back to ROCK Woods, KICK away on a leg, but Woods block the kick to forearm and CHOP! Ricochet snarls and comes back but is put on the apron. Ricochet shoulders in, slingshots but Woods disrupts that by hitting the arms! Ricochet crashes to the apron, Woods goes up the corner but Ricochet CHOPS! And CHOPS! Ricochet climbs up and brings Woods around. Woods fights the superplex to CLUB away on Ricochet!

Ricochet drops to the apron, but he springboards back up to the top! SUPERPLEX! Both men are down and fans fire up as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns and Ricochet whips Woods to ropes to then CLOBBER him with a back elbow! Cover, TWO! Ricochet keeps his cool and Woods sits up. Ricochet KICKS Woods in the back, taunts him, then brings him up for a EuroUpper. Ricochet snapmares and basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Woods gets to ropes while Ricochet keeps his cool. Ricochet stalks Woods, throws haymakers, but Woods blocks the suplex. Woods turns things around to hang Ricochet out to dry! Woods goes up the corner to DOUBLE STOMP Ricochet down! Woods hurries back up top and fans fire up for the SECOND ROPE LEG DROP! Cover, TWO!

Woods grits his teeth and drags Ricochet up by his wrists. Woods uses that to dead lift into a suplex, for a GUT BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Ricochet survives and Woods is frustrated! Fans fire up and Woods aims as Ricochet rises, Ricochet ducks the knee to ROUNDHOUSE Woods down! Ricochet catches his breath, to roll into the facelock and fireman’s carry! ROLLING DEATH VALLEY, to a PENALTY KICK! Woods crawls to the apron for safety, but Ricochet goes to the corner. Ricochet grins and runs to FLY over the corner! Direct hit and down goes Woods! Ricochet hurries to get back in and keep the count fresh, to then DIVE! Direct hit and Woods goes into barriers!

Ricochet just keeps moving, he’s feeling it here and he DIVES into a SLAM! Woods deflects the tope into the floor and Woods gets Ricochet into the ring! Woods pushes Ricochet around, goes to a corner and he tightrope walks, LIMIT BREAKER!! Cover, Woods wins!

Winner: Xavier Woods, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

The semifinals will have the power of positivity, but will it be overflowing with it? Will Kofi or Jinder meet Woods in the next round?

 

RKBRO talk backstage.

Matt Riddle has news that is sure to blow Randy Orton’s mind. Someone challenged Omos to a 1v1 match tonight. Here’s some hints as to who it is. One: he has a sweet head of lettuce. Two: he loves Lunchables. Did Riddle challenge Omos? After the plan went so well last week, Riddle had to follow in Orton’s footsteps like a baby viper. Riddle looks up to Orton like this cool uncle. But with all this momentum going into Crown Jewel, what’s the plan? Riddle wants to know how they’re gonna get the better of AJ Styles & Omos this week. Riddle remembers in history class, learning about this guy named Jack who led a trail of beans to trap a giant!

Riddle, there is no plan and there was no plan. That was a one time thing last week. And in no way should Riddle have challenged Omos. “Bro, you’re on your own.” Wait… “No plan,” just like how they’re “not” getting matching snakeskin speedos! No, shouldn’t have brought that up. See you out there later, Randy! Is the Viper gonna have to bail the Stallion out of being thrown off the mountain known as Omos?

 

Mansoor & Mustafa Ali VS The Hurt Business!

The Star of Saudi Arabia and The Beacon are still working on this tag team thing, but they’re going against the newly reunited Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin. Have PRIMED Alexander and the Gold Standard patched things up from their time as enemies? Or can Mansoor & Mustafa take advantage of any leftover dysfunction?

Raw returns and The Hurt Business is already in the ring. Benjamin starts with Ali, and Benjamin sucker punches Mansoor! Ali rushes in to dropkick Benjamin then fire off hands. Ali whips, Benjamin reverses and then pops Ali up for a FLAPJACK! Tag to Alexander, he brings Ali around and back suplexes. Ali lands on his feet, slides under Alexander and tags Mansoor in! Mansoor CLOBBERS Alexander, whips and atomic drops to a BOOT and ENZIGURI! Alexander wobbles, Mansoor runs to clothesline him in the corner. Tag to Ali, he climbs up, DOUBLE STOMP BACK SUPLEX! Ali dropkicks Benjamin down then Mansoor DIVES out to hit him down!

Ali goes up while Alexander is still down, 450 but he has to roll through! He turns around, into a scoop MICHINOKU! Cover, Benjamin keeps Mansoor out, the Hurt Business wins!

Winners: The Hurt Business, by pinfall

No dysfunction at all between Alexander & Benjamin! Mansoor goes to Ali’s aid but then Ali shoves him down! Ali is getting sick of this, and he storms off. Is their own dysfunctional duo already done?

 

Queen’s Crown Opening Round: Shayna Baszler VS Dana Brooke!

The Queen of Spades has been getting the upper hand and breaking the arms of her opponents, but the Flex Appeal was one woman spared thanks to the courage of “Doudrop” Piper Niven. Will Shayna simply finish what she started while heading for the crown?

Raw returns, Dana is already in the ring, and the match begins. Dana rushes Shayna but Shayna sends her into buckles. Shayna fires off hands, body shots, but lets off as the ref counts. Shayna runs in but Dana dodges the knee! Dana goes to buckle bump but Shayna blocks that and elbows her away. Shayna whips but Dana reverses and fires off on Shayna now! The ref counts, Dana lets off and then bumps Shayna off buckles. Fans fire up as Dana goes corner to corner, but handsprings into a KIRAFUDA KLUTCH! Dana drops down, victory rolls, TWO! Dana tries an Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Dana gets the arm, but Shayna trips her and rolls to an ANKLE LOCK!

Dana endures, rolls and sends Shayna into ropes! Roll up, but Shayna rolls through to KNEE Dana down! Cover, Shayna wins!

Winner: Shayna Baszler, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

And just like that, Shayna’s ready for the semifinals! But she wants to go after Dana more! Dana gets away and the ref reprimands Shayna. Will Shayna continues to do what she wants, all the way to being crowned queen?

 

Charlotte Flair is backstage.

“Who cares about Shayna Baszler?” And whatever happened between Bianca Belair, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch doesn’t interest her, either. They can rip each other apart at Crown Jewel but Charlotte only cares about herself. Those three are already beneath her as the most decorated female in sports entertainment history, and is already wrestling royalty. Bianca is fiery, but she doesn’t have the killer instinct to go for the throat. Becky talks the talks but never walks the walk. She just likes riding other people’s momentum.

As for Sasha, how many times as Charlotte beaten her? Charlotte actually hopes Sasha wins the title so that Charlotte can slap that stupid smirk off her face and then become a DOUBLE CHAMPION! The UNDENIABLE champion, melding the titles together! Will Charlotte have no choice but to care when she’s in the ring with the EST, The Man and The Boss?

 

Matt Riddle VS Omos w/ AJ Styles!

The Bro may have just stepped in it this time. The Viper is staying in the back, will this be a major step backwards on the road to the coming Raw Tag Team Championship match?

Raw returns and AJ Styles makes his entrance to lead the way for Omos. Riddle gets a mic to tell Omos, “Whoa, man! Before we get started, Omos, there’s a couple of things I want to say.” Riddle’s been doing a lot of thinking. He thinks all the time. Remember #Brogurt? And surely Omos knows about #Brotein, look how swole he is! Way more than Skipper Styles! Riddle claims he forgot what he was talking about, but clearly he’s stalling. RANDY, NOW! Nothing.  Classic Randy, he’s just super busy and waiting for a secret code word. Riddle starts singing Voices, but then tries, “pissed off!”

Styles gets the mic and says this is ridiculous. Riddle is stalling, everyone sees it. Even San Francisco, and they’re not even that smart! Riddle is having his head removed from his shoulders, it’s happening! Let’s ring the bell and get this over with! Riddle starts a “Randy! Randy!” chant but Styles hops off the apron. The bell rings and Riddle dodges Omos to then go after Styles! Omos drags Riddle up by his hair then TOSSES him into the ring! Omos sees Riddle go to a corner, he runs in and SPLASHES! Riddle flounders around, manages to stand up leaning against Omos, but Omos grabs him in a choke grip, for a CHOKE SLAM!

Omos uses one foot to cover but Styles wants this to keep going! They can legally beat the crap out of him for as long as they want, so here’s what they’ll do. Remember that karate lesson from third grade? Styles wants to see Omos roundhouse, so Omos waits. Riddle gets up, ROUNDHOUSE!! Styles wants to see that on instant replay! The titantron has it and Styles loves it as much the second time. What’s even better than that? Riddle isn’t getting up so why not watch it in SLOW MOTION! Fans want Randy but Styles tells them to shut up. Instant replay in slow-mo is just as good for Styles as the first time. Now, time to get rid of Riddle with the TWO HAND SLAM!! Cover, Omos wins!

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

Styles says Omos is done with Riddle, but Styles isn’t! Styles drags Riddle up, reels him in, but here comes Orton! But not from the ramp side! Styles turns around but wait, no crowd side, either? Styles tells Omos they should be ready for that anyway and he sends Omos out. Omos and Styles dare Orton to show himself from somewhere, but Orton slithers up from under the ring! Orton gets in and RKO’s Styles down! Then he gets Riddle out of the ring and RKBRO again get the drop on the Phenomenal One and the Mountain of a Man! But will they be dropped as soon as Omos gets at them in the title match?

 

McIntyre confronts Big E backstage.

Clearly he’s still upset about how things went with the Usos earlier, but Big E says the two of them will beat the brakes off each other at Crown Jewel. But if they don’t figure this thing out tonight, it’ll be a long night. The Usos are SEVEN time tag champs for a reason. So for tonight, let bygones be bygones. McIntyre says those are good points, and the Usos are here with Roman’s permission since they don’t even get to wipe their asses without it. So then the Head of the Table is scared of the both of them. As he should be! Plus, beating the Usos would be a good win for them. Yeah, and Big E did see McIntyre’s dimples talking about nectar and nipples. Freaky boy.

But that said, the two shake hands a la the Mega Powers. Will they get to savagely hulk out on both Jimmy & Jey? Or will they still be put in the Uso Penitentiary?

 

Bobby Lashley is here!

The Rocky Mountain Machine is dressed to impress, but what does he have to say about his coming Crown Jewel grudge match? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Lashley has the mic. “Unbelievable. A lot of people ask me why I decided to challenge Goldberg to a No Holds Barred match.” But before answering that, did anyone see Goldberg stand in this ring and talk about ending Lashley’s life? Goldberg said verbatim, “I’m not only next, but that No Holds Barred match gives him license to kill and that I’m dead!” That is not befitting of a WWE superstar, of a WWE Hall of Famer, and not befitting of a father. Who do you have here? Someone standing in front of you, dressed like a million bucks and who defend his WWE Championship the entire year? Or do you have that man who came with cut off sleeves, foaming at the mouth and screaming about murder?

Fans start up a “GOLD~ BERG!” chant, and Lashley sarcastically says that is classy. But that is why he challenged Goldberg to No Holds Barred. Lashley can’t go into a match, a fight, with a man screaming and frothing at the mouth like a rabid animal. “The icon of Goldberg has been reduced to a rabid dog!” And though Goldberg has a strong bite, that dog needs to be put down. At Crown Jewel, with no rules in No Holds Barred, Lashley will finally end Goldberg’s career! No longer will Goldberg be running into Raw, prancing in here and beat someone up, then ride off into the sunset. No, not again. Lashley says that there will be no misunderstandings.

Fans keep up the “GOLD~BERG!” chants but Lashley tells Goldberg that he can’t beat The All Mighty. You can’t hurt the All Mighty! Goldberg damn sure can’t KILL the All Mighty! The wrath of All Mighty Lashley is set to collide with the rage of Goldberg, with either man even survive?

 

Sasha Banks speaks.

“Ever since Charlotte’s been drafted to SmackDown, her entitlement really has her feeling like she’s in charge. When in reality, the woman who holds the SmackDown Women’s Championship calls the shots.” Right now, The Man is clutching to the title for dear life. Tonight, Sasha is supposed to trust the woman who lost said title in less than 30 seconds in Bianca Belair. Bianca needs to sit back and follow The Boss’ lead. Sasha is the standard, the blueprint, and none of them compare. Tonight, after Becky and Charlotte implode, Sasha will beat them. Then in 10 days, in that Triple Threat, Sasha will beat Bianca & Becky to become the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion. The Boss is all smiles, but will tonight be anything but #LEGIT?

 

Jeff Hardy VS Austin Theory!

It’s no mystery here, the Charismatic Enigma wants payback on The Way’s prodigal son! Will Hardy get extreme #AllDay? Or will Theory take flight using Hardy as his launching pad?

Raw returns and Theory makes his entrance. The bell rings, Hardy doges Theory then fires off hands. Hardy bumps Theory off buckles, Theory elbows back then throws forearms. Fans rally for Hardy as Theory whips him to a corner., Hardy elbows Theory down, hops up and leaps for ax handles! Theory staggers into a kick but denies the Twist! Standing switch but Theory bucks the O’Conner to slingshot, somersault and SHOTGUN dropkick! Cover, TWO! Theory clamps onto Hardy with an armlock, but wait, is that Reggie? He’s being chased by Team Maverick! Reggie LEAPS over Theory, the others get in the ring but Reggie dodges Gulak, sending Gulak tumbling!

Reggie plays cat ‘n’ mouse with Akira Tozawa, and then goes out of the ring and into the crowd! R-Truth is last but Theory has him stop. “Do you know who I am?” Truth dodges theory to go out after Reggie, Hardy gets Theory for an atomic drop! Leg splitting leg drop! TWIST OF FATE! Hardy goes up top, fans fire up, SWANTON BOMB! But it FLOPS as Theory moves! Roll up with tights, Theory wins!

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

Just as it seemed the 24/7 Championship chase turned things in Hardy’s favor, Theory turned it right back around! Will Theory use this wild momentum to climb higher and faster on Raw?

 

Bianca Belair speaks.

“I know we come from different backgrounds, but Charlotte Flair and I clearly have a different idea of what it takes to be a winner. In my life, I was fortunate enough to win with strength, with character, with heart. Charlotte Flair, she thinks that being ruthless is what it takes to be a winner, but for her, that usually just means cheating.” The EST doesn’t have to cheat and she’ll prove that when she takes the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Crown Jewel. And Sasha wants Bianca to follow her lead? Bianca doesn’t ever remember Sasha being the fastEST, but she does remember Sasha losing at WrestleMania.

And Bianca will never forget what Becky did to her at SummerSlam. But it’ll only take 30 seconds for Bianca to send Becky back to being #BeckyNOBelts. Friday, there were no issues with dropping them both through the table. A double pin could be in the future. Or maybe that’s for tonight. This is Raw, and Bianca goes here now. The EST is certainly the readiEST, but will she be able to keep things together with Sasha long enough to win?

 

King of the Ring Opening Round: Kofi Kingston VS Jinder Mahal w/ Veer & Shanky!

We know Woods is waiting, but will the semifinals be a battle of ya bois, the NEW~ DAY? Or will the Modern Day Maharaja’s boys make sure he is headed for the throne?

Raw returns as Woods hypes Kofi up. Kevin Patrick returns to ask how they’d feel about facing each other next week. Who would win? Who who who who? The music hits again and it’s time to do work! Kofi makes his entrance, Woods staying ringside to counteract Veer & Shanky. The bell rings, Kofi and Mahal circle. They tie up, Mahal waistlocks, SLAMS Kofi down, then gloats. Kofi gets up, he and Mahal tie up, and Mahal headlocks to a takeover. Kofi fights back up, fans rally and Kofi powers out. Mahal runs Kofi with a shoulder and he grins as things speed up. Kofi hurdles, Mahal fakes out the second then runs Kofi over again!

Mahal soaks up the heat then brings Kofi up to put him in a corner. Mahal ROCKS Kofi with a forearm, throws body shots, then stomps a mudhole! The ref counts, Mahal lets off at 4 and then he whips Kofi corner to corner. Kofi goes up to missile dropkick! Then runs corner to corner to forearm smash! Kofi fires off, whips, but Mahal reverses. Kofi hold ropes to BOOT back, then runs to RANA! Mahal bails out, Kofi aims and slingshots. Mahal dodges so Kofi lands on the apron to PENALTY KICK! Kofi goes up the corner, SUPER TRUST FALL! Fans fire up and Kofi gets in the ring! Veer & Shanky head over to help Mahal while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Mahal has Kofi in a cobra twist. Fans rally as Kofi endures and Kofi works on an escape. Kofi pries at the leg hook, then gets free to SOS! It wasn’t very clean as Mahal was fighting the whole way. Woods and the fans rally up again, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” as Kofi gets to the ropes. Kofi DOUBLE COHPS, DOUBLE CHOPS then dropkicks! Kofi runs, Mahal dodges the leaping lariat to kick and whip. But Kofi goes up and up to CORSSBODY! TWO!! Woods coaches Kofi but Mahal shoves him away to fireman’s carry. GUT BUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO! Kofi survives but Veer & Shanky cheer Mahal on. Mahal drags Kofi up in the corner to throw knees down low.

Mahal hoists Kofi up top and throws haymakers. Kofi hits back, throws fast hands and a headbutt! Mahal drops down, Kofi adjusts, SPLASH to Mahal’s back! Cover, TWO! Kofi hurries and PENALTY KICKS! Mahal is down, Kofi fires up and the fans join in! NEW~ DAY~ Boom Drop! Kofi goes to a corner, fans fire up as Kofi claps along, but Shanky distracts! Woods LEAPS over to hit him! But Veer CLOBBERS Woods with the Million Dollar Arm! Kofi WRECKS Veer, Mahal ghost pins him! TWO!! Kofi goes to a corner, slips out and swing kicks! Kofi goes up, leaps, but into a KALLAS!! Cover, Mahal wins!

Winner: Jinder Mahal, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Well, now we don’t have to worry about who wins in Kofi VS Woods, because Mahal is taking that semifinal spot! And he even goes to the throne to sit down and wear the crown! Will Woods avenge his New Day brethren as he fights towards the finals?

 

Becky Lynch speaks.

“For someone who likes to talk a lot, I don’t have too much more to say. Sasha, Charlotte, Bianca, they all said their little piece about The Man while I was out of earshot. It doesn’t matter, I beat them all.” Becky’s done everything she said she’d do and then raised the bar even higher. There’s a reason she was the longest reigning Raw Women’s Champion: she’s always five steps ahead. Teaming with Charlotte is as repulsive as the smell of piss in a downtown alley, but it doesn’t matter. Becky will lead her team to victory because winning is what she does. Unlike Bianca, who she beat in 26 seconds. Unlike Sasha, who runs home and cries every time she loses.

Well bring on the tears, because The Man walks out of Crown Jewel the same way she walks in: as SmackDown Women’s Champion. All four have shared their thoughts on tonight’s tag match, and that match is NEXT!

Bianca Belair & Sasha Banks VS Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair!

The Boss heads out first and is feeling herself. But will she and Bianca be able to be the #LegitEST duo once again? Or will they simply fall apart even faster than the frenemies across the ring from them?

Raw returns as Bianca makes her entrance. She and Sasha are already at each other with Bianca parodying Sasha’s pose, but now out comes Raw Women’s Champion and her Infinity Gauntlet robe! And of course, last but not least, the SmackDown Women’s Champion makes her entrance. The teams sort out, more in that Sasha pushes Bianca to the corner, but then Bianca returns the favor. Sasha pushes Bianca aside again as Becky is more than happy to start. Bianca has Sasha move back again, but then Sasha pulls the ponytail! Bianca is getting heated now and she whips Sasha into the corner! Becky attacks them both! Charlotte just goes out, but then Becky is sent into her!

Bianca and Becky brawl, Sasha goes after her, Charlotte comes back and tackles Sasha! Bianca has Becky in a corner, extra refs rush in to stop this! Charlotte stomps Sasha, Becky fires off on Bianca, but Sasha and Bianca turn it around on them! Charlotte throws Sasha into buckles, Bianca RAMS into Becky! Charlotte throws Sasha out, she and Becky work together, BECKSPLODER for Bianca! But then Charlotte BOOTS Becky! There are no allegiances anywhere, and Charlotte rushes to the corner as Becky bails out! Charlotte goes up, but Sasha stops her with haymakers! Becky yanks Charlotte down, they throw hands, and Sasha goes up! Only for Bianca to get her!

Bianca THROWS Sasha onto The Queen and The Man!! Fans fire up for The EST but now management and security rush out to stop this! Fans boo but Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville come out now. Pearce says these four had the opportunity to show the entire world what the greatest women competitors could do and this is what they choose? No! Not tonight! Sonya says these four can get back in the ring for this to restart! But Sasha and Bianca are fighting each other! Then Becky and Charlotte get involved, fighting each other again! Sasha and Bianca get in the ring, they brawl, and Raw goes to break! How is any tag match supposed to happen at this point?!

Raw returns and somehow, the teams have sorted out. Sasha and Charlotte start and the bell rings. The two slowly circle then tie up. Charlotte waistlocks, they go around, Sasha resists the lift to switch. Charlotte elbows out hard, then drags Sasha by a leg. Sasha turns Figure Four into O’Conner Roll, TWO! Charlotte kips up but Sasha RANAS her away! Sasha then wheelbarrows and victory rolls! ONE, but Sasha blocks the boot to KNEE back! Charlotte comes back to catch Sasha for a BACKBREAKER and SLAM! Charlotte drags Sasha up, bumps her off buckles, then snapmares her down to step on her. Becky tags in and Charlotte seethes, but she lets it be.

Becky runs but Sasha avoids the leg drop! Sasha runs to BASEMENT METEORA! Cover, TWO! Sasha argues the count but she brings Becky up to wrench and YANK the arm. Sasha tags Bianca in with some sauce, but Bianca wrenches Becky. Bianca tags Sasha, Sasha takes the hand-off and wrenches to YANK. Another saucy tag, Bianca hops up to ax handle, but Becky breaks free to fire off hands! Becky gets Bianca in the corner, then sends Sasha in. Bianca dumps Sasha out, brings Becky around and snap suplexes! Roll through to a dead lift and stalling SLAM! Then a running SPLASH! Cover, TWO!

Becky sputters, Charlotte taunts Bianca but Bianca whips Becky. Becky reverses, Bianca goes up and tells The Man to kiss this, but Sasha tags in and dumps Bianca down! Sasha KNEES Becky, rolls her around, BANK STATE- NO, Becky slips out! DISARM- NO, Charlotte tags in! Sasha throws Becky away, Becky CLOBBERS Her, then Charlotte tells Becky to get her ass out. Becky says that’s real cute from Charlie, but then Sasha hits a BACKSTABBER! Becky and Sasha start swinging on each other again! Becky EuroUppers, Sasha blocks a kick to KNEE! Becky blocks backstabber and Bianca throws Sasha down!

Bianca then spins Sasha around for double chicken wings! GlamEST SNAKE EYES! The ref rings the bell, this is getting to be too much again!

No Contest

Becky gives Bianca a BECKSPLODER! And then clamps onto the arm! Bianca resists, powers up to a torture rack, but Becky holds ropes! Sasha hits a BACKSTABBER on Bianca! Becky sobats, but Sasha turns backslide around! Becky fights the backstabber, Sasha fights the urenage! Becky bucks the backstabber to sobat and MANHANDLE SLAM!! Big Time Becks stands tall, making the real statement! But will this be how Crown Jewel goes for The Man? Or will someone take the title away from #BigTimeBecks to change the power dynamic in the women’s division?

 

The Usos talk with Roman Reigns on the phone.

Jimmy assures “Big Uce” that everything’s on lock. They the ones! Jimmy tells Jey that Roman wants them to complete the mission. Big E and McIntyre are going to be at each other’s throats by the end of the night! Will the Usos make sure no one in Roman’s way stands a chance?

 

Queen’s Crown Opening Round: “Doudrop” Piper Niven VS Natalya!

The inaugural tournament’s opening round closes with Piper the Viper and the statement maker, bone breaker, title taker! Will Piper trump the Queen of Harts to then go after the Queen of Spades?

Raw returns as Natty makes her entrance. The bell rings, Natty stares at the happy-go-lucky Piper doing her little dance. Natty says Piper needs to take this serious, this is something the Hart family paved the way for. Then she SLAPS Piper across the face! Piper gets serious and  ties up with Natty. They go around, Natty fires off in a corner but the ref counts. Natty lets off but then comes back with heavy body shots! Piper shoves her away, Natty headlocks and throws away Piper’s flower hairclip. Piper blocks the takeover, powers up and out of the headlock, then drops. Natty rolls, Piper gets up and Natty CHOPS her! Then SLAPS her!

Winner: Piper Niven, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Piper celebrates, but Shayna looks eager to get after her. Will Piper get to bully the bully? Or will Shayna find a way to break Piper’s bubbly spirit before breaking one of her arms?

 

John Morrison meditates backstage.

But Rhea Ripley asks him what he’s doing. He looks over to see her and Nikki A.S.H. Isn’t it obvious? He’s tapping into his chi so he can share his innermost thoughts with the world. There is a lot going on. Well that’s great. Everyone should follow their dreams. Rhea has Nikki move on from the Guru of Greatness, and then asks if she understand what he was even talking about. Nope! Will #SuperBrutality worry more about their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships than chi and tranquility?

 

Austin Theory snatches a selfie with Big E.

Big E lets that slide, he has bigger fish to fry. Will he and the Scottish Warrior be serving up a juicy L to the Usos?

 

Backstage interview with Mansoor.

Kevin Patrick asks about what happened with him and Mustafa Ali, but Mansoor says he isn’t sure what’s going on. Ali storms over and shouts, “You still don’t know?!” Then let him explain: Mansoor is nothing more than a giant waste of time! Ali wants Mansoor to listen. Ali wants to show Mansoor how to survive this place, but all Mansoor wants is to dance around and make friends. He doesn’t deserve to be here! Mansoor tells Ali to get it all off his chest. Ali says Mansoor is his ONLY lifeline! The only one watching his back! Without Ali, Mansoor gets eaten alive.

But in a way, this is Ali’s fault. Ali should’ve just said this to Mansoor’s face: “You’re a loser. You’re worthless. You. Are. NOTHING.” And when Mansoor doesn’t react, Ali says, “That’s what I thought.” Ali leaves, only to come back and attack! “You still don’t get it, do you?!” Ali throws Mansoor into road cases! And then rains down rights! He wants Mansoor to listen to him, even as he beats him up! “You are NOTHING!” Ali throws Mansoor down again, and then actually leaves. Has Ali just snuffed out the Star of Saudi Arabia’s light?

 

Big E & Drew McIntyre VS The Usos!

The WWE World Champion and his challenger agree that their common enemy is The Tribal Chief. Therefore, the SmackDown Tag Team Champions will have to be the next best thing until each man has their turn taking on Roman Reigns. Will the Powerhouse and the Warrior be able to show Roman what he has to look forward to through his cousins? Or will they be welcomed to the Uso Penitentiary?

Raw returns and the teams sort out. Big E starts against Jimmy, they tie up at the bell, and then Big E throws Jimmy down. Big E gets Jimmy up, reels him in for back elbow after back elbow, then he puts Jimmy in the corner. Tag to McIntyre, and he stomps away! He’s staring up the stampede! Tag to Big E, he stomps, McIntyre tags in and he stomps! These Scottish Unicorns keep going, then Big E whips McIntyre in to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! McIntyre wrenches an arm and has a chinbar. Jimmy endures, fights up but McIntyre wrenches. Jimmy headbutts free then rams McIntyre into the corner. Tag to Jey, he runs in and forearm smashes!

Jey RAMS McIntyre into another corner, whips corner to corner, but McIntyre reverses. Jey goe sup but McIntyre BOOTS him out of the air!

Jimmy tags in and they give back all those stomps!

Tag back to Jey, he tops things off with one more stomp, then tag back to Jimmy. They both drag Big E out and split the wishbone! Cover, ONE, but Jimmy wraps on a chinlock. Big E endures, San Francisco is behind the Usos as hometown heroes, and Jimmy headbutts Big E back to the corner. Jimmy throws more headbutts, tags in Jey, then Jimmy tops it off with one more headbutt. The Usos point to the sky, Jey drags Big E by his legs and stomps him in the gut! And again! Tag to Jimmy, the Usos bring Big E up and they mug Big E. Cover, ONE!! Big E’s still hanging tough but Jimmy keeps Big E down with a chinlock.

Big E fights up as fans rally and Big E throws body shots. Jimmy CLUBS Big E, Big E shoves him away, but Jey tags in before Jimmy gets an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Jey gets Big E up to fireman’s carry, but Big E goes to the apron! Big E dumps Jey out, then aims at Jimmy, APRON SPLASH only gets apron as Jimmy moves! The Usos get Big E up to RAM him into steel steps! McIntyre storms over but the ref has him stay back as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Jimmy has Big E down with a neck wrench. Fans rally and duel as Big E fights up to JAWBREAKER! Jimmy staggers, comes back to kick but Big E blocks. Big E spins Jimmy but gets a DRAGON WHIP! Jimmy tags Jey, they double whip Big E for a DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER! Jey covers, TWO! McIntyre coaches Big E and fans fire up as Jey argues the count. Big E crawls to an open corner, Jey shouts “UCE!” and fans shout “OH!” Jey runs in to HIP ATTACK in the corner! Big E is dazed, Jey points a finger to the sky and goes corner to corner again, and he lets out another “UCE!” “OH!” Jey runs but Big E moves, Jey hits only buckles!

Big E gets up to get Jey for a Belly2Belly! Both men are down and fans fire up! Jey and Big E crawl, hot tags to Jimmy and McIntyre! The Scottish Warrior rallies on Jimmy as fans rally and duel again! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! McIntyre clinches to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Jimmy swings but then rolls McIntyre up, TWO! McIntyre gives Jimmy a SPINEBUSTER! Jackknife, TWO! McIntyre snarls, drags Jimmy back up, underhooks the arms, but Jimmy slips out, to get a GLASGOW KISS! Jey tags in and gets in as McIntyre goes after Jimmy, SUPERKICK! The Usos regroup, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Down goes McIntyre! Cover, TWO!!

They’re brawling, just like the Usos wanted! Big E smacks McIntyre off steel steps! And then off barriers! The count is climbing on Big E as the brawl continues! McIntyre POSTS Big E, then throws him over the desk! The count is 10, the Usos wins!!

Winners: The Usos, by count-out

But Big E hits McIntyre back and bumps him off apron! The Usos DOUBLE TOPE CONJILO! They take McIntyre and Big E out, then THROW Big E over the announce desk! Then they throw McIntyre into the barriers! The Usos clear off the announce desk, throw chairs out of the way then bring Big E around to throw into barriers! They TIP the desk over, but Big E OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Jey! Big E shoves Jimmy to McIntyre’s OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Big E and McIntyre get back in the ring and fans fire up as they throw hands again! Big E shoves, scoops, but McIntyre slips out! CLAYMORE OUTTA NOWHERE!!

The Scottish Warrior, a bloody, busted welt over his eyebrow, roars and stands tall! But will he end Big E’s reign at Crown Jewel to begin his third? Or will the Powerhouse of Positivity show him what he can do when he’s angry?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good Raw, but with the same problem as on SmackDown: The Queen’s Crown tournament has been booked in the most disappointing way it could be. Now, in a vacuum, Shayna Baszler should have dominated just as she did tonight. But when it follows up a pair of stupidly short matches on SmackDown, it just feels bad. Piper VS Natty was the longest of the four matches but it was still under 10 minutes. The semifinal matches better be mind-blowing or it’ll just emphasize how Team Vince just doesn’t care about the women’s midcard. The top of the card, aka the titles, got a good showing going into the tag match.

Charlotte, Sasha, Bianca and Becky all delivered good promos, but I would’ve gone in a different direction with the tag match. After it turned into chaos, I would’ve just made it a Fatal 4 Way, maybe even for the Raw Women’s Championship. I know they want Becky going into Crown Jewel with the momentum because with her and Charlotte switching brands while still champions, someone has to lose a belt. Becky VS Sasha for the “Supersized” SmackDown that’s an extra half hour longer will tell a lot about Crown Jewel, but something also needs to happen on next week’s Raw go-home to see how Charlotte loses the Raw Women’s Championship.

Speaking of go-home, tonight had a lot of Go Home Syndrome. Too many commercial breaks on top of recaps and short matches. The Hurt Business is back but Ali and Mansoor are done as a team, can’t Vince just let them all stay? More teams for the tag champions to face, but no. This week’s RKBRO segment was alright, Omos of course wins but Orton still gets the last laugh. Horrible camera direction, though. I basically just assumed he came out from under the ring because we didn’t get even a replay to see Orton appear. I feel like at this point, math would dictate Styles & Omos win, but there is now one more Heel team than Face, so RKBRO has more possibilities with Hurt Business as contenders.

Lashley had a decent promo, not really the smoothest, but he does make a good point: even in pro-wrestling, how is Goldberg getting away with threatening Lashley’s life? Well whatever, the No Holds Barred match is going to be the best way for Lashley to carry Goldberg through that match. Hardy VS Theory was a disappointing match only in that it had the 24/7 Championship division pass through just because. Hardy VS Theory could’ve been a better match if it was just a match, but nope. Maybe Theory’s drive-by selfie with Big E is a tease at what’s coming next.

The King of the Ring matches were very good, with Woods having a great one with Ricochet. Kofi VS Mahal was good, but I suppose it makes more sense for Mahal to win as WWE keeps things as Face VS Heel. I suppose while WWE doesn’t mind separating New Day, they won’t make them fight each other. Pretty sure this means Woods beats Mahal to go to the finals, then. We got great stuff out of McIntyre, Big E and the Usos, and that Mega Powers handshake was a great little bit. Great match out of McIntyre & Big E VS Usos, and that count-out finish was the best move for this, given Big E and McIntyre stand tall over the Usos and then McIntyre stands tall over all. With McIntyre going to SmackDown, it’s pretty clear Big E retains and keeps the world title on Raw.

My Score: 8/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight.

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.

  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip. Shibata switches the Cobra Twist onto Lee! Lee endures now, marches his way forward, and has the ROPEBREAK! But Shibata KNEES Lee low! Shibata reels Lee in to SAIDO!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

Storm survives and AZM can’t believe it! AZM fires herself back up, reels Storm in, but Storm wrenches out to SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!! Storm throws a fit then storms around. Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF.

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
