How much bigger can things get with night two?

 

Becky Lynch is here!

The SmackDown Women’s Champion is here, and the Man’s come ’round to Nashville! Big Time Becks gets a mic, and she’s excited to be on Monday Night Raw. It’s been a year and a half since she’s been on this show and it feels good to be back. But she’s about to make a lot of executives unhappy with jumping the gun, but she doesn’t care! She does what she wants! So the first pick for Monday Night Raw tonight is… Fans already guess it, and it’s BECKY! This is her show now! Now she’s still holding the SmackDown title but she was the longest reigning Raw Women’s Championship, and she never actually lost that belt!

And the person holding that belt right now, they’ve gone back and forth. Charlotte hasn’t been the same since the last time Becky beat her. But when Charlotte last beat Becky, Becky’s been better than ever and Charlotte can’t stand it! So Becky thinks it is time to become #BeckyTwoBelts once again! Fans like the sound of that but here comes The Queen! Charlotte struts her way to the ring, but fans chant for “Becky Two Belts!” Charlotte wants to first say hi to her old friend, Becks. But Charlotte says that before Becky won, she was just “Becky Preshow.” Charlotte made Becky famous. And Becky needs to get over her inferiority complex. She’ll always be looking up to the most decorated woman in sports entertainment.

But it’s good Becky is leaving SmackDown, these two have unfinished business. But here comes Bianca Belair! The EST is back on Raw and in her reddEST outfit. Fans chant for “E S T!” as Bianca hears them talking unfinished business. Bianca’s got unfinished business with both of them. They must feel threaten cuz they both took cheap shots at Bianca on Friday during and after the main event. So neither of these two are ready for the EST of the WWE to become the EST of Monday Night Raw. “Cuz I go here now.” Aw how cute, Bianca. But shh, the champions are talking. Hold up, Charlotte. Who you think you talking to? Did you just disrespect Bianca?

Fans chant “Charlotte Sucks! Charlotte Sucks!” and Charlotte counters with “What? What?” Bianca says Charlotte is here, but she don’t even go here! So then, Becky. Get your girl cuz she don’t know Bianca. Whoa, whoa, Charlotte is no one’s girl. And she is not a girl, she is a woman! And she isn’t disrespecting Bianca. Bianca’s done a lot, from winning the Royal Rumble to winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship to main-eventing WrestleMania! She’s done almost as much as Charlotte! But the only thing anyone should be doing is asking for autographs and thanking Charlotte for paving the way.

Becky says that sounds pretty disrespectful. If it was Becks, she’d fight Charlotte right now. But Becky’s beaten Charlotte so many times, there’s nothing to left to prove. But Becky feels these two haven’t fought on Raw. What would happen? Charlotte wants everyone to wait. “Bianca, I only give out opportunities. Not charities.” Becky says she wouldn’t take that, either. Bianca says she can give Charlotte something. The earrings start coming off but Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce come out to stop this. They can make the right opportunity for this in one hell o fa main event. For the first time ever on Raw, Charlotte Flair VS Bianca Belair!

But there’s more! Natalya & Tamina are having a rematch for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships with Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H! And even bigger, a US Championship match will kick things off! And with that, the Charismatic Enigma heads out! Jeff Hardy is heading to SmackDown, but can he grab the title and bring it along with him?

 

Raw returns with the first round of draft picks.

The cat’s outta the bag, it’s official now, Raw chooses BECKY LYNCH! SmackDown chooses the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos! Sounds like Paul Heyman’s negotiations worked out. The Usos are backstage shaking hands and Paul Heyman thanks God for this mercy. Raw now chooses… BOBBY LASHLEY! Mondays stay mighty and Lashley is happy his suit matches the brand. And SmackDown closes the round with… Sasha Banks! The Boss stays on the blue brand, will she make it #LEGIT?

 

WWE United States Championship: Damian Priest VS Jeff Hardy!

Raw returns to the ring and the Archer of Infamy makes his entrance. He and Hardy have faced off already, will Priest make sure Hardy doesn’t take this title away to SmackDown?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and a critical moment in this Draft happens in the ring!

Hardy and Priest circle as fans rally up. They tie up, Priest wrenches to a hammerlock then a headlock. Hardy powers out, Priest runs him over with a shoulder. Things keep moving, Priest rolls over Hardy’s drop down. Hardy rams shoulders but Priest rebounds to run Hardy over! Cover, TWO! Priest keeps on Hardy but Hardy JAWBREAKERS back! Hardy kicks, throws hands, but Priest counter punches! Priest ROCKS Hardy then ROUNDHOUSES him down! Hardy flops out of the ring, Priest goes out to get him up. Choke grip but Hardy fights free! Hardy is on the apron now, and he LEAPS, only to crash ‘n’ burn as Priest dodges!

Priest gets in the ring and then builds speed, but Hardy moves! Priest slips out the side, goes up the steps, CANNONBALL! Direct hit and Priest fires up as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Hardy fights Priest as they’re both up top! Hardy throws headlock punches and then elbows Priest down. Hardy adjusts for a WHISPER IN THE WIND! Cover, TWO! Hardy keeps going and he CLUBS Priest at the ropes. Priest reverses the whip, dodges the haymaker and WHEEL KICKS Hardy down! Priest hurries to get Hardy up, dragon sleeper and RECK- NO! Hardy slips out, TWIST- NO! BELL CLAP and a RIPCORD ROUNDHOUSE! Hardy rebounds to SLINGBLADE! Kick and TWIST OF FATE! Hardy throws off the shirt and climbs up top! Fans fire up and Hardy SWANTON BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! And into a ghost pin! Priest wins!!

Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall (still WWE United States Champion)

The momentum flips in an instant, and the US Championship stays on Raw! Priest shows Hardy respect by helping him up, and Hardy shows it back. Hardy is still frustrated, can he use the move to SmackDown as a way to refresh himself? Sarah interviews Hardy to ask him about that move. Hardy says he loves the fans, and is so good to be in front of them again. He’s been to the highest of highs and crashed back down to reality at times. That said, Hardy going to SmackDown might be the perfect opportunity to see a different side of him. A different ego, if you will. But for the next few weeks, he’s still here so he intends to make the most of it.

Wait, who is this coming out? Austin Theory, Raw’s choice from NXT! Theory doesn’t mean to disrespect Hardy as he introduces himself and says a dream has come true. Theory got put on Raw and he gets to be in the ring with the legendary Jeff Hardy! Hardy motivated and inspired Theory and look where he is today! Theory doesn’t mean to fanboy right now, but could they take a selfie? Fans aren’t sure but Hardy gives Theory that opportunity. They take the pic, Theory saves it, then he CLOBBERS Hardy! Theory fireman’s carries to the A T L!! Hardy is down from the Austin Theory Liftoff, and Theory takes another selfie to rub it in. Is Theory going to use this to make his way up to the top?

 

Backstage interview with RKBRO.

Randy Orton and Matt Riddle are both still on Raw, but they’re going to defend their tag titles at Crown Jewel against AJ Styles & Omos. Riddle is just excited to have Orton back! especially with Ogre Omos choke slamming him. Is that a snake in Orton’s pocket or is he just as happy as Riddle? But hey! They’re back in action, time for sweet revenge. Speaking of, Orton took some sweet time off. He is glowing right now, like a skinless snake sitting in the sun. What? Riddle learned that snakes shed their skin in school. Orton says the useless facts are fine, but is he done? Yes. Okay. Then they have the opportunity to defend their titles and shut Styles & Omos up once and for all.

But that’s not until Crown Jewel. So don’t fret, because it’s a very special night here in Nashville. Orton has a proposition. “Omos. I’m talking to you, big brother. I think that it is time, Omos, that you finally go one on one… with the Legend Killer.” Riddle is in awe! Is the Viper about to bring down the biggest prey he’s ever gone after?

 

Raw returns with more draft picks!

The second round of tonight opens with Raw taking Seth Rollins! A highly logical pick, of course. SmackDown chooses… WWE Intercontinental Champion, Shinsuke Nakamura, and his rockin’ bard, Rick Boogs! The duo is fired up and rocking backstage! Raw then chooses… Damian Priest! The US Championship truly stays on Raw now that the Archer of Infamy is staying! But SmackDown takes SHEAMUS! Will the Fella make Fridays all about the fights?

 

Shayna Baszler VS Dana Brooke!

The Queen of Spades has been on the meanest of mean streaks and that’s still putting it mildly. But #FlexAppeal is back and she’s stepping up to fight the bully. Will Dana be the one to succeed? Or will she end up sidelined just like Nia Jax and Eva Marie?

Raw returns and Dana is in the ring. The bell rings, Dana dodges Shayna, goes after Shayna’s arm then fires off haymakers. The ref counts, Dana lets off only to tie Shayna up in the ropes. Dana digs her boots in, lets off as the ref counts, but Shayna gets her arms and brings her around for a BACKBREAKER! Dana writhes and clutches her arms as they were jammed in that move, but Shayna gets her up to whip hard into buckles! Shayna then stands on Dana, isolates the arm and lets down her hair, but Dana turns stomp into roll up! TWO, and Shayna has an ARMBAR! Dana flails, Shayna drags her into the KIRAFUDA KLUTCH!! Dana taps, Shayna wins!

Winner: Shayna Baszler, by submission

But she isn’t done! She goes out and pursues Dana. The ref tells her to back off, we’ve seen this two weeks in a row already. Shayna wrenches the arm and BOOTS it against the LED apron! Shayna smirks, pulls steel steps apart, then drags Dana over to steps! But here comes DOUDROP! Piper Niven won’t let Shayna bully Dana any longer. Shayna smirks at Piper, but then goes after her from behind! The clubbing forearm didn’t knock Piper over, and now Shayna may have picked on the wrong person. Will Piper be the one to give Shayna a taste of her own medicine?

 

The Usos are fired up backstage.

Heyman finishes a call but Kevin Patrick spooks him. Kevin asks that they must all feel good now that The Bloodline stays together on Raw, all thanks to Heyman’s influence. Well at least Kevin is prettier than Kayla. And yes, this is Heyman’s influence. He isn’t just the Special Counsel, he is the Warden of the Uso Penitentiary. Is that how Heyman managed Brock Lesnar’s free agency? Heyman is speechless and the Usos are in a bad mood again. They leave without him, can Heyman ever set the record straight?

 

Mansoor & Mustafa Ali VS Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo!

A rematch from a couple weeks ago, the Star of Saudi Arabia and the Beacon see if they can game plan a counter strategy for the lucha libre cousin combo. Will Garza & Carrillo keep their win streak going? Or can Mansoor & Mustafa finally figure teaming up out?

Mansoor starts with Carrillo, and Carrillo knees Mansoor right at the bell! Carrillo CLUBS and stomps Mansoor, then drags him up to whip him to a corner. Corner splash and fast hands! Carrillo CHOPS, stomps, then whips corner to corner. Mansoor returns to tilt-o-whirl inverted DDT! Both men crawl, hot tags to Ali and Garza! Things speed up, Ali calf kicks Garza then bumps him off buckles. Garza reverses the whip but Ali slips out of the corner to ROUNDHOUSE and somersault, into a ROLLING ELBOW! OFF COME THE PANTS! Now Garza matches Carrillo, but Ali wrenches, knees and FISHERMAN SCREW! Cover, Carrillo breaks it!

Mansoor throws Carrillo out then PLANCHAS, only to miss! Carrillo CLOBBERS Mansoor and tells him off, but Ali O’Conner Rolls! TWO, and into a buckle Garza digs his boots in, then lets off so Carrillo can POST Ali! Garza covers, he and Carrillo win!

Winners: Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, by pinfall

Handsome for sure, but devious to boot! Will these two continue to heat things up in the Raw Tag Division?

Wait, here comes Big E! The Powerhouse of Positivity loves the energy, but what will he have to say about all things WWE Draft 2021? We find out, after the break!

 

Raw returns with the third round of draft picks!

Raw starts this one off with… The Phenomenal AJ Styles and Omos! It only makes sense if they’re to challenge for the Raw Tag Team Championships. But will Omos give Orton his 1v1 match? SmackDown responds with… Shayna Baszler! The Queen of Spades has a whole new set of superstars to go after now. And Raw takes the relentless Kevin Owens! The Prizefighter is back on Raw! SmackDown closes and selects NXT’s Xia Li! Tian Sha has sharpened her to a razor’s edge, who will she cut down in the near future?

 

Big E is in the ring!

“Nashviiiille~! It feels incredible to be on MY show, Monday Night Raw! But, I’d be lying if I said this past week or so didn’t meet me with some challenges. For one, for the second consecutive year, Kofi & Woods were drafted to a brand that I am not on.” Fans boo that, but then rally up with “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Big E thanks them for that and notes the most physically grueling match of his career where he made sure the All Mighty Bobby Lashley fell down to his knees, and he came to show the world that he is indeed our RIGHTFUL WWE World Champion! Nashville chant “E! E! E!”

But in typical WWE fashion, before Big E could even breathe, his very next challenger came and declared himself. “This man is no joke. This man is a two-time WWE Champion. This man is an actual and literal swordsman. This man, is Drew McIntyre.” Big E won’t waste any more time by asking McIntyre to come to the ring and speak his mind. And so, here is the Scottish Warrior! And his sword, Angela, too! McIntyre joins Big E in the ring, Big E tells him to watch where he points the sword. McIntyre raises it up over his head before he sheaths it in the corner. McIntyre then gets a mic to tell Nashville, “It’s a DREW day, yes it is!”

Now McIntyre is going to SmackDown but he has unfinished business on Raw. Many months ago, he was screwed out of the WWE title and he has been biding his time. He’s been waiting for a hero to liberate the title from Lashley, and Big E did it! This is the part where most would antagonize Big E or egg him into a match, but McIntyre tells the truth. Big E deserves to be WWE Champion. Fans cheer that sentiment, and chant, “You Deserve It!” Big E has the love of the fans, of the others in the back, but surely Big E was waiting on social media for a congratulation. But McIntyre does things the old fashioned way and he wants to congratulate Big E face to face.

Fans cheer as the two shake hands, and McIntyre says, “But… Yeah, it was coming. Technically, you did cash-in on an injured Lashley. Although technically, Lashley attacked me from behind and I got cashed in on, so he does deserve it. And technically nobody likes Lashley anyway so you did the world a favor! And technically, it finally, after all this time allows me to do this. E, I challenge you for a match for the WWE Championship.” But wait, the Dirty Dawgs are here? Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler want all of this to wait a moment. Roode & Ziggler were minding their own business, waiting to here where they’re going, but couldn’t help but overhear this beautiful story.

Ziggler says this is all very inspirational. Ziggler’s a huge fan of E’s and is very proud. He even texted Big E but he left it unread and that’s fine. But this is a motivational, inspirational story. Ziggler just wanted to know why Big E was handing out congrats, he forgot Ziggler. Big E is supposed to thank Ziggler? Yeah! Many forget, but Ziggler has a reminder. Footage plays of 2013, when Ziggler was World Heavyweight Champion and Big E was his sidekick. Big E was super strong! They were at WrestleMania and beyond! Surely his mentoring had nothing to do with Big E’s success. But without Ziggler, there is no New Day, no Money in the Bank cash-in. Hell! Woods might not’ve been born! There is no Big E without #DZ!

McIntyre says Ziggler might have a point. But Ziggler reminds McIntyre where he was a few years ago. Ziggler is just bringing it up because McIntyre, another inspirational story of bringing himself back to the WWE, owes it all to Ziggler. 2018, they were a duo, helping each other out, and Ziggler was the one guiding McIntyre, all the while knowing McIntyre would main event against Brock Lesnar! All Ziggler’s ever wanted as a gentleman is a simple, “Thank you.” He did all the work, these guys rode the coattails. So he wants a thanks from them? Yes. Big E and McIntyre huddle up, and clearly Ziggler’s upgraded from them to Roode. Oh ha ha!

Roode says he is twice the friend and twice the tag team partner McIntyre ever was! As for Big E, he was a bodyguard! Bug Roode puts the “body” in bodyguard! Big E? Well this is BIG BOB! No one will ever call him that. Don’t disrespect Big Bob! And this is about Dolph! He was the kingmaker here! He is just asking for a simple thanks! “Because I am the perfect gentleman.” McIntyre and Big E nod, and McIntyre says, “What does Nashville think?” Fans boo Ziggler and Big E says they do owe something. That something is an ASS WHOOPIN’! The two Dirty Dawgs can take on Big E & BIG D! Right here, tonight, and right now!! It’s go time, after the break!

Big E & Drew McIntyre VS The Dirty Dawgs!

Raw returns and Ziggler starts against McIntyre. The bell rings, they circle, Ziggler fires off hands. McIntyre comes back and CLOBBERS Ziggler! Then he dead lift suplexes and TOSSES Ziggler to the corner! Tag to Big E and he puts Ziggler on the apron. Big E then gives Ziggler an APRON SPLASH! Ziggler flounders and Big E dares Roode to tag in. Roode tags in but things speed up and Big E hurdles to CLOBBER Roode. Big E tags in Drew, he CHOPS Roode then whips. Roode kicks back, swings but misses, NECKBREAKER and a kip up from McIntyre! Tag to Big E, he walks over into Roode’s kick. Roode bumps Big E off buckles, tags Ziggler, and they whip to dropkick! Cover, ONE!!

Big E snarls but Ziggler wraps on a chinlock. Ziggler wants Big E to show “daddy” something. Fans rally up for E and he fights up but into the Dawgs’ corner. Tag to Roode, they mug Big E, then Roode stomps a mudhole. The ref counts, Roode lets off and brings Big E up. Roode suplexes and goes to the corner to hop up. Roode leaps but the knee drop hits nothing but mat! Big E tags in McIntyre and he BOOTS Roode down! McIntyre gets Roode up, whips him to ropes and OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes! McIntyre clinches in the corner, OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Ziggler runs in but into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

McIntyre runs at Roode but Roode dodges and McIntyre hits posts! Roode distracts the ref, Ziggler SUPERKICKS McIntyre down! Fans boo as the Dawgs get away with that one, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns and Roode grinds McIntyre down with a chinlock. Fans rally as McIntyre endures and fights up to his feet. McIntyre throws body shots then ROCKS Roode with a right! McIntyre ends up in the Dawgs’ corner, he fights his way out, but Roode kicks McIntyre’s leg! Roode whips but McIntyre reverses to GLASGOW KISS! Both men are down from the headbutt and fans fire up! Roode tags Ziggler, hot tag to Big E! Big E gets DZ for an OVERHEAD B3lly2belly of his own! Then another! Then dodge to the side Belly2Belly! Fans fire up and Big E swivels them hips. Big E runs and hits the BIG SPLASH! Big E claps it up and fans join in, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!”

Big E scoops Ziggler, Ziggler claws eyes and slips off, to run and- NO! No DDT as Big E shoves Ziggler. Ziggler runs into the Urenag-E! Cover, Roode breaks it! Roode drags Big E up but is thrown out! Big E runs but into a knee! Ziggler runs up, ZIGZAG!! Cover, McIntyre breaks it in time! Roode clubs McIntyre out of the ring, then leaps, into McIntyre’s arms! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Ziggler still rolls Big E, TWO! SUPER- NO! Big E dodges and CLOBBERS Ziggler on the return! Straps come down and Big E drags Ziggler up! McIntyre tags in, which disappoints Big E. McIntyre gives us the countdown, and CLAYMORE!! Cover, McIntyre & Big E win!

Winners: Big E & Drew McIntyre, by pinfall

Big E is fine with McIntyre doing that, but here comes Roode! Big E intercepts, scoops and hits the BIG ENDING! McIntyre picks up the title and looks at it. Big E takes it from him, and if McIntyre wants it so bad, then it’ll be on at Crown Jewel. McIntyre likes the sound of that! Will Big E be able to keep the title away from McIntyre and SmackDown?

 

Reggie asks Adam Pearce for something.

Someone said Pearce wanted to talk to Reggie in regards to the Draft. Um, that’s news to Pearce. Maybe someone gave him bad info. Huh. Wait, wait, wait. The VIKING RAIDERS block Reggie’s path! R-Truth gets Reggie! Just give up the title! Reggie slips out of his jacket then dodges Truth, dodges Drew Gulak, dodges Jaxson Ryker, and dodges Drake Maverick coming in on a golf cart! Reggie goes up a table, up a crane lift’s arm, then flips off that, only to end up face to face with Apollo Crews & Azeez. Apollo says it is okay. Good to see Reggie again. Right, yeah. Maverick rushes in, Reggie dodges and the chase takes off into the night!

Apollo says he was right, things would get very exciting here on Raw. But will the Pride of Nigeria and his Commander look to take over more than just the 24/7 tier?

 

Kevin Owens is here!

And with him comes the KO Show! What will the Prizefighter say about what’s been happening on SmackDown?

Raw returns and Kevin doesn’t have his set, but he doesn’t have much time to say anything, anyway, as Akira Tozawa barges out! Tozawa apologizes but wants to say, Kevin is here, welcome back to Raw! Fans cheer that, but Tozawa says he isn’t here to fight Kevin. He wants to fight Reggie for the 24/7 Championship! Tozawa waits, but Kevin tosses the mic aside to STUNNER! Tozawa is down, Kevin shrugs and moves on. Will Kevin worry about venting next time?

 

Raw has more draft picks!

To open the fourth round, Raw chooses… The Street Profits! Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins return to Raw, Monday wants the smoke! SmackDown counters by taking the Viking Raiders! Erik & Ivar were once Raw Tag Team Champions, can they raid the SmackDown tag titles soon enough? Raw then selects… The Prince, FINN BALOR! The inaugural Universal Champion is back on the red brand, will he make Mondays Too Sweet? SmackDown closes this round with… The One & Only RICOCHET! Will going to Fridays be a fresh start for the King of Flight?

 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. VS Natalya & Tamina!

#SuperBrutality is again facing the Queen of Harts & Daughter of Superfly! While they were drafted to Raw, will Rhea & Nikki keep the keys to all brands here tonight? Or will Natty & Tamina once again be statement makers and title takers?

Raw returns and Natalya & Tamina make their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if the belts stay on the red team or go back to blue.

The teams sort out, Natty starts with Nikki, kicks and bumps her off buckles, then bumps her off more buckles! And more buckles! Natty fires off in the corner, the ref counts and Natty lets off. Natty whips, Nikki goes up and over and keeps moving to dropkick Natty’s legs out. Nikki then basement dropkicks and Natty bails out. Nikki pursues and fires off hands! Natty goes around the way, Nikki chases her into the ring but Tamina tags in. Nikki DECKS Natty but Tamina BOOTS Nikki down! Tamina fires up and she drags Nikki up to bump off buckles. Tamina then TOSSES Nikki across the ring! Tamina stands Nikki up, clotheslines and HEADBUTTS Nikki down!

Tamina and Natty taunt Nashville, then Tamina toys with Nikki. Tamina fireman’s carries but Nikki slips into a SLEEPER! Rhea reaches out but Tamina throws Nikki away! SUPERKICK! Cover, Rhea breaks it in time! Tamina drags Nikki up, tags Natty, and then Natty gets the legs. Natty steps through but Nikki cradles! TWO, Nikki slips off the scoop, tag to Rhea! Rhea and Natty fire off hands, Rhea shoves Natty then dodges to dropkick Tamina! Rhea spins Natty for a short arm LARIAT! And another! Ripcord and HEADBUTT! Then a snapmare to basement dropkick! Fans fire up with Rhea and she drags Natty back up. Natty shoves but Rhea heel kicks!

Natty dodges in the corner, uses ropes to rebound Rhea for the sit-down spine jammer! Natty steps on Rhea but Rhea avoids the basement dropkick! NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, Tamina breaks it! Tamina drags Natty to the corner, tags in, but Rhea BOOTS Tamina out! Natty & Tamina regroup, but Nikki SUPER CROSSBODIES! Nikki is fired up, she and Rhea get Tamina in! Pump handle, RIPTIDE! Tag to Nikki and she gets a boot off Rhea’s shoulders, ELECTRIC CHAIR SPLASH! Cover, Nikki & Rhea win!

Winners: Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)

That was some BOOM ZIP KAPOW, superhero level action! But we all know Shotzi Blackheart & Tegan Nox are still owed a shot. Will #SuperBrutality have to worry about the tank and the Shiniest Wizard from here on out?

 

Raw returns with the fifth round of draft picks!

Raw opens this round with choosing… Karrion Kross! Doomsday stays on Mondays, who faces the apocalypse next? SmackDown chooses… Humberto Carrillo & Angel Garza! We just saw them win tonight, will they keep things going once they move to Fridays? Raw continues and selects… Alexa Bliss! She may be mourning Lilly, but will she be back more twisted than ever? SmackDown closes this round with Cesaro! The Swiss Cyborg stays on the blue brand, will he be able to rebuild towards the top?

 

GOLDBERG is here!

The Hall of Famer issued his final warning to Bobby Lashley, but now he wants a face-to-face to hear Lashley’s response. He gets the mic and shouts out SEC Country! “Bobby Lashley has the audacity to claim that what he did to my son was a ‘misunderstanding.’ It wasn’t. It was intentional! So tonight, I’m inviting Bobby Lashley in this ring so I can intentionally break his frickin’ neck.” And so here comes Lashley! Lashley tells Bill that for the last time, what happened at SummerSlam was a misunderstanding. And Goldberg must be out of his mind thinking Lashley is going to risk this custom made suit just to whoop Goldberg’s ass again. Some people aren’t still dressing like it’s 1998.

Lashley knows Goldberg is angry, but Goldberg needs to understand Lashley’s perspective. This is character assassination, Goldberg owes Lashley an apology. They will have a match, at Crown Jewel, but under one condition! The match is NO HOLDS BARRED. Goldberg is happy for that! He thanks Lashley for that! That match gives Goldberg “license to kill!” Lashley thinks Goldberg is crazy? Well he is! Lashley wants an apology? Here it is: Goldberg will apologize to Lashley’s kids after he leaves Lashley gasping for air in the ring. “Because there’s one thing for sure, Bobby Lashley. You’re next. And, you’re dead!” Does the Rocky Mountain Machine realize what he just gave Goldberg?

But Lashley says Goldberg can’t kill the All Mighty. And the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree, so let Gage know that if he has the balls to do what he did last time, then it won’t be a misunderstanding this time. So what would Goldberg do if someone came out and jumped on his back? Like right now! THE HURT BUSINESS jump Goldberg from behind! But Goldberg elbows Shelton Benjamin away, throws off Cedric Alexander then KNEES him down! Benjamin swings, Goldberg dodges and SPEARS! Prime Alexander and the Gold Standard just got steamrolled, will far worse happen to Lashley at Crown Jewel?

 

Backstage interview with Seth Rollins.

The Visionary sings, “Guess who’s back? Back again! Sethy’s back! Tell your friends!” And guess what? The best part is, Mikey (Kevin), is that Rollins is better than ever! But also drafted to Raw is- No no no, do NOT say his name. This is Rollins’ party! Don’t rain on his parade. Rollins takes care of that business on SmackDown. This is Raw. Rollins doesn’t give a s*it who steps to him! He is a visionary! He is a revolutionary! He is SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Party time! Pints!! Is Rollins going to compartmentalize between the brands the next few weeks?

 

The New Day VS The Hurt Business!

Well, we just saw Cedric & Shelton try to punk out Goldberg only to made into the punks. Will the Power of Positivity only add to their misery here tonight?

Raw returns and Benjamin starts with Kofi. They tie up, Shelton RAMS Kofi into the corner, throws hands, then lets off as the ref counts. Shelton hits Kofi again, whips then back drops! Kofi crashes, Shelton takes a breath then tags in Cedric. They mug Kofi, Cedric CLUBS and stomps Kofi down, then drags him up to tag Shelton back in. Shelton throws hands, then forearms, then whips corner to corner. Kofi goes up and hits a TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and fans rally up. Hot tags to Cedric and Woods! Woods rallies on Cedric, dodges and LEG LARIATS! Woods whips, Cedric reverses but Woods tilt-o-whirls to a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!

Woods runs in at the corner but is put out. Woods falls off the apron, but he dodges Shelton. Kofi DOUBLE STOMPS Shelton down, Woods ROCKS and GAMANGIRIS Cedric down! Woods walks the tightrope for the LIMIT BREAKER! Cover, New Day wins!

Winners: The New Day, by pinfall

Woods shouts, “CROWN ME! CROWN ME! CROWN ME! ALL HAIL KING WOODS!!” But out come The Street Profits! Nashville chants, “We want the smoke!” but the Profits congratulate the New Day. Congrats on their new movie, too, “Escape the Undertaker.” How did they do it? No, that’s spoilers. But all the chopping up they did on SmackDown, the Profits want to congratulate the New Day on this win. Plus, they wanted to tell the WWE Universe that they are back on Monday Night Raw! And #WeWantTheSmoke! Everyone high fives and share the drinks. Kofi loves it! Will they each love being on their new home brands after Crown Jewel?

 

RKBRO head to the ring!

The Bro scoots alongside The Viper, but will the Mountain of a Main accept the 1v1 challenge? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Orton has a mic. “Omos. I’m here, and I am ready.” We still haven’t gotten a response for the challenge, so it makes Orton wonder… Is Omos AJ Styles’ personal colossus? Or just a big bitch? Styles & Omos head out now, and Styles has the music cut short to say, “Are you kidding me? You want a response?” They were celebrating Styles’ win over Gilligan there. Riddle is Gilligan cuz Styles is Skipper. But anyway, Orton is insignificant. It doesn’t matter if Omos destroys Orton tonight or not, and he would. Because frankly Randy, does Riddle have any brain cells left to stop Styles & Omos from taking the titles at Crown Jewel?

It’s great that they’ve all been drafted to Raw, actually! Because Styles & Omos can gloat week after week that they brought an end to this asinine team known as R K BRO. And as far as the 1v1 goes- Orton DECKS Styles! Omos DECKS Riddle, and these two are 1v1 after all! Orton dodges Omos, to RKO Styles! RKBRO bails out, because this was never about going 1v1 tonight! Can Orton and Riddle make sure Styles and Omos only get beat at Crown Jewel?

 

Raw returns with the last round of the entire draft!

Raw opens this sixth round with choosing… Carmella! The Most Beautiful Woman in ALL of the WWE is here on Mondays, and she is happy to hear it! SmackDown chooses… NXT’s RIDGE HOLLAND! Northern Grit is going to make the blue brand black ‘n’ blue! Raw chooses the NCAA champion and 2020 gold medalist, GABLE STEVESON! And SmackDown closes out the year with the very last pick! SAMI ZAYN! The Great Liberator is staying on SmackDown, will he continue to claim conspiracy now that he’s Mr. Irrelevant?

 

Charlotte Flair VS Bianca Belair!

So the Queen is still Raw Women’s Champion, but she’s going to SmackDown after Crown Jewel. Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch are going to Raw but they’ll be battling for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Crown Jewel. Will the EST defeat one champion before going after the other? Or will Bianca’s return to Raw be ruined before it’s even official?

But wait! Here comes Big Time Becks! She clearly wants to see this up close and personal. But will she have any affect on the outcome like she did on Friday? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns once again and the bell rings. The fans cheer for “E S T! E S T!” but Charlotte keeps her cool. Charlotte and Bianca circle, tie up, and go around. Charlotte headlocks, hits a takeover, but Bianca moves around to headscissor. Bianca squeezes tight but Charlotte kips free, only for Bianca to headlocks. Bianca hits a takeover but Charlotte headscissors. Bianca pries free then kips up and runs in, but Charlotte sweeps. Cover, ONE! Bianca sweeps, covers, ONE! Charlotte kicks low, throws Bianca by her hair, then smirks as she stands over her. Things speed up, Charlotte cartwheels and handsprings, but Bianca returns the favor!

Bianca scoops, Charlotte slips off, things keep moving and Charlotte basement dropkicks! Charlotte kips up again and grins as she has Bianca in a corner. Charlotte bumps Bianca off buckles, whips and bumps Bianca into more buckles, but gets annoyed as fans chant for the EST. Charlotte whips corner to corner, Bianca goes up and over and handsprings to a corner to say kiss this. Charlotte runs in, Bianca goes up and over again then dropkicks Charlotte down! Bianca kips up and fans fire up and says kiss this again. But Charlotte rolls it up, TWO! Bianca kicks low, bumps Charlotte off buckles and brings Charlotte around for another buckle bump.

Bianca taunts Charlotte, runs in but Charlotte BOOST her! Charlotte whips Bianca to a corner, Bianca reverses but Charlotte tumbles up then out. Charlotte shoulders into Bianca, ROCKS her with a forearm, then drags Bianca out to the apron. Bianca fights back with body shots, ROCKS Charlotte in return, then reels Charlotte in. Charlotte pulls the ponytail to block the suplex! Charlotte kicks low, turns Bianca around, BACKBREAKER to ELBOW DROP DDT to the apron! Charlotte drags Bianca down to TOSS her into the timekeeper’s area! Charlotte soaks up the heat and mocks the EST as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more and Charlotte has a dragon sleeper on Bianca! Bianca fights with knees, then uses the corner to go up and over. Bianca runs into a knee from Charlotte, but she dodges the boot to dropkick! Bianca wrenches Charlotte to a suplex and she holds Charlotte up for a count of 10! Cover, TWO! Bianca stomps Charlotte and handsprings to a MOONSAULT onto knees! Charlotte CHOPS Bianca, then CHOPS again! And again! Bianca dodges but she runs into a clothesline from Charlotte! Charlotte rolls Bianca up, TWO! Charlotte dead lifts Bianca to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!

Charlotte goes to a corner and aims as Bianca rises. Charlotte runs in as fans duel, Bianca slips out of Natural Selection! Bianca wrenches sand suplexes but charlotte slips out to use the ponytail! Bianca ROCKS Charlotte, torture racks, KISS OF- NO! Charlotte lands on her feet, both women dodge the other, SPEAR from Charlotte! Cover, TWO!! Charlotte is furious but she also grins as she stalks Bianca to a corner. Bianca back elbows but Charlotte ROCKS her back. Charlotte has the leg but Bianca avoid the knee drop! SPINEBUSTER! Not the cleanEST but still good! High stack, TWO! Charlotte survives but Bianca puts her in a drop zone!

Bianca climbs up, but Charlotte bumps ropes to trip her up! And then BOOTS her down! Charlotte climbs up as Becky boasts on commentary, MOONSAULT but Bianca moves, SECOND MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Charlotte hurries to get a leg, but Bianca turns the Figure Four into and inside cradle! TWO, and Bianca ROCKS Charlotte! Torture rack, KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, but Becky drags Bianca out?!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by disqualification

And Becky RAMS her into steps! BECKSPLODER into barriers! And then Becky puts Bianca back in the ring for a MANHANDLE SLAM! But SASHA BANKS is here! And she’s getting revenge on Becky! Mudhole stomps and a METEORA! But then METEORA for Bianca! Sasha stomps Bianca but Becky fires off on Sasha! Sasha gets around to hit a BACKSTABBER! The Legit Boss just sent a message to both the Man and the EST, will she be the one keeping the SmackDown Women’s Championship on Friday Night SmackDown?


My Thoughts:

Another pretty good Raw, even with the Draft. Quite a few of the supplemental picks from after SmackDown surprised me. I thought this was the chance for Nia to go to SmackDown but guess not. And Alpha Academy coming to Raw makes sense after seeing that Gable Stevenson is skipping NXT to be right on Raw. I have a feeling Stevenson interacts with Chase Gable & Otis right away, given Chad is a former Olympiad. But the entire 24/7 “Division” being kept on Raw makes sense. It seems only USA Network cares about this title and the pseudo American Ninja Warrior moments backstage with Reggie and the others.

One thing surprising was that the draft and the countdown to Crown Jewel is clearly putting a finite point on a few of the smaller feuds. Shayna beat Dana quickly but Piper stopped her from breaking Dana, only for Shayna to be drafted to SmackDown. Garza & Carrillo go to SmackDown, which does help that division build up a bit, and puts a pin on the feud with Mansoor & Ali. But only seeing T-Bar and not Mace in the supplemental picks, I wonder if the two of them finally ditch their Retribution gimmicks, as random as that’d be. Tozawa’s newest shtick seems to be similar to what John Morrison’s was a few weeks ago: getting beat up by guys that’re too much for him.

Kevin Owens being split of from Sami Zayn kills my hopes of them feuding with “Happy” Corbin & “Madcap” Moss to then move on to the SmackDown Tag Team Championships, and this might even be a sign Kevin is leaving to join his friends in AEW. On the other hand, Raw naturally secures the Raw Tag Team Champions and their challengers so that the titles stay put no matter what, and they can perpetuate that feud forever. The segment between RKBRO and Styles & Omos was alright, but it gets them screen time. But Austin Theory had a great impact his first day back going after Hardy. Also, why the hell is Vince acting like Theory wasn’t here during ThunderDome era?

Rhea & Nikki VS Natty & Tamina was good but obviously filler because who else does WWE even have right now before all these draft picks and call ups take effect? I was most disappointed that Natty & Tamina didn’t break up over this. Tamina should stay on SmackDown, Natty should be a supplemental pick to Raw. Tamina goes Bloodline, Natty at least gets to give more midcard strength to Raw. And as for Shotzi & Tegan still waiting their turn, that better happen on the “season premiere” of SmackDown as an aside to the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments starting. Plus, it’s been over two months so what the hell are they waiting for?

We got a good segment out of Heyman and the Usos, but it seems almost too easy to just let the pick go the right way. Why not actually show some Heyman wheelin’ ‘n’ dealin’ skills by saying Usos can be traded back to SmackDown? Give Raw the New Day back and certainly fans like myself will be happy! Then there will be more purpose to New Day VS Hurt Business tonight! For that matter, Hurt Business look real weak losing right after failing to beat down Goldberg. Lashley VS Goldberg, No Holds Barred is fine, but feels like more of an excuse to have Hurt Business work as a trio against Goldberg, only for Gage to help out or something.

Big E and Drew McIntyre did have a really good match with the Dirty Dawgs, and naturally we’re getting Big E VS McIntyre at Crown Jewel. McIntyre will lose, move on to SmackDown, and try again with the Universal Championship. Sheamus going to SmackDown makes sense, because I’ve been wanting him to get the Intercontinental Championship for a Grand Slam this whole time. Rollins had a quick but great promo, because it adds to how complex his character is becoming. And we got great stuff out of the women’s title story, with Becky here giving away she is now on Raw, and her stirring up trouble with Charlotte and Bianca.

Charlotte VS Bianca was really good, and Sasha showing up making that big statement works. There is a possibility that Sasha Banks comes away with the SmackDown title at Crown Jewel because she’ll be staying on SmackDown through the draft. It’s either that or as I theorized on SmackDown, the SmackDown title is with someone drafted to Raw, we get a title trade like the New Day and Profits last year.

My Score: 8.2/10

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?

Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer.

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. Rocky still fights his way out of the hold, wristlocks and wrenches again, then YANKS the arm.

Roddy ROCKS Rocky then CHOPS him! Roddy whips, Rocky slides under then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky then wrenches Roddy and goes up a corner. Rocky FLYING KNEE DROPS right on the arm! The fans cheer the Latino Heat and Rocky goes back to the corner. Rocky CHOPS Roddy, Roddy CHOPS back! Rocky CHOPS, Roddy kicks low! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, ROCKS him, then reels Rocky in for a BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes but Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy and The Kingdom talk trash, Roddy swings but Rocky dodges! Rocky CHOPS and then stomps away on Roddy!

Rocky digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, then stands Roddy up. Rocky snapmares and runs to basement dropkick! Roddy flounders, Rocky covers, ONE!! Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up. Roddy gives Rocky a RAILING BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes, The Kingdom mocks him more, and Roddy drags Rocky up.

Roddy puts Rocky in the ring, stomps Rocky around, then drags him up to CHOP! Rocky staggers to a corner, Roddy storms up on him, and then DECKS him!

Roddy gets Rocky up but Rocky ROCKS him first! And again! Roddy hits back, Rocky CHOPS, and CHOPS! Rocky runs, but Roddy blocks the Rana to make it a POWER BREAKER! Rocky writhes, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Rocky with a motorcycle stretch!

Rocky endures as Roddy digs knee into Rocky’s back. Rocky fights up, moves around, but Roddy knees him low! Roddy scoops Rocky to RAM him into buckles! Then OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO! Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool. Rocky fires forearms in the corner, then winds up! The fans fire up as Rocky runs in, clothesline! Another clothesline! But Roddy follows to RAM Rocky, and CHOP him! And CHOP! And CHOP! Roddy whips, Rocky comes back into the SICK KICK! Cover, TWO!

Roddy is frustrated but he hauls Rocky up. Fireman’s carry, but Rocky fights free! Roddy shoves, lifts again, but Rocky pops up to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirls and DDTS! Cover, TWO! Roddy survives but Rocky stays focused. The fans rally for Rocky as he stalks Roddy. Roddy RAMS Rocky, gets him up top, and then climbs up after him. Rocky fights with fists and a HEADBUTT! Rocky then cravats, SUPER SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

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!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! 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!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! 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

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.

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 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.

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!

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 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!

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.

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.

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!

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. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

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
