PLAY BY PLAY

Kevin Owens talks with Big E backstage.

For years, Kevin’s tried to show he’s not the guy who turns on people. Big E is rubbing cocoa butter on his body, he doesn’t know why Kevin cares. Kevin cares about very few people’s opinions but Big E’s is very important to him. The history with the New Day, this means a lot to him. He swears he didn’t really know what happened with Rollins. Big E says he has a match tonight, so he doesn’t really care. Big E leaves, but will Kevin prove himself tonight?

 

Seth Rollins heads to the ring.

He swaggers out with his title contract… and a blue trench coat? Rollins soaks up the heat from Louisville, then gets a mic. “Welcome to Monday! Night! Rollins! And as the undisputed Face of Raw, it is my duty to inform you that I AM a Visionary! I AM a revolutionary! I AM Seth! Freakin’! Rollins! And I am your next WWE Champiooon~!” Now Rollins was going to come out and wax poetic about how he will lead Team Raw to glorious, glorious victory at Survivor Series over the “bums” on SmackDown… Fans chant “You Look Stupid!” at him but he laughs it off. Like the morons here in Louisville know anything about fashion! Just look at ’em!

But enough of that! There’s a very important question to answer, based on what we just saw. “Who exactly is Kevin Owens?” Is Kevin the Prizefighter? Is he the hero? Is he the man who will do anything, put his body on the line and fight it out for the WWE Universe? Or is Kevin a snake? Is he a gutless, spineless coward? Is Kevin Owens a liar? What do the fans think? They boo Rollins but he says that he’s known Kevin a very, very long time. They go way back, coming up together in the industry. Slept on the floor at some Econo Lodge together. And for as long as Rollins has known Kevin, there’s one thing you can count on with him: He would stab you in the back any chance he got!

Don’t believe Rollins? Ask his old buddy, Sami Zayn! That didn’t work out there! Or Kofi and the New Day! Didn’t work out there, did it? Kevin is as low as it gets! He is a paramecium, an amoeba that cannot be trusted. You can’t trust him as far as you can throw him, and no one can throw Kevin that far. Kevin is a snake, a coward, gutless, soulless and a LIAR! After Rollins beats Kevin in the main event, not only will Kevin be the biggest liar, he’ll be the biggest LOSER in the world! But speaking of, here comes Kevin! Rollins wants Kevin to take it easy, but the chase is on! They go around, then in the ring, and Kevin blocks to DECK Rollins!

Rollins bails out but Kevin gets him by his blue jacket to get him up! Rollins scrambles into the ring to avoid the apron powerbomb and then runs away entirely! Kevin throws the contract at him, then dares the real coward to do something! Rollins is willing to wait until later tonight, but will he be made to eat his words?

 

RKBRO talks backstage.

Riddle says it is awesome to team up with the Street Profits! They’ll be like the Eternals, or Voltron, and become a super fighting robot! And then they can call themselves the Bro-Bot and get some sweet payback on Omos. Orton wants Riddle to remember that they are Raw Tag Team Champions so they have a target on their back. RKBRO can’t pick fights with giants. Omos attacked them last week! No, he attacked the Profits last week but Riddle had to play hero. And he got mauled for it! So let’s not do that again. But the Profits- Orton doesn’t care about the Profits. Ouch. Well we can talk about that later, but the Profits are right behind Orton…

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins are nonplus about what Orton said. Riddle assures them he still wants the smoke, but Orton says he meant every word. It doesn’t matter what happens in the ring, but if the Profits have a vendetta with the giant, Omos, then they’re on their own. The music hits and Orton heads out. Riddle says that went as best as possible. Wait up, Randy! Riddle scooters out behind Orton and the champs lead the way. Will the Stallion and the Viper be able to work with Tez & Dawks against the giant, the Phenomenal, and the Dirty Dawgs?

Styles sits Riddle up, drives an elbow into the shoulder and then wraps on a chinlock. Riddle fights, gets to the ropes, and Styles lets off to stomp him down. Fans rally for Riddle, Styles drags him up and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Ziggler, leaving Roode hanging. Styles and Roode argue but Ziggler gets Roode to tag in. The Dawgs mug Riddle, Roode turns Riddle for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roode does push-ups to show off now. Roode stomps Riddle, fans rally up for Riddle but Roode steps on his neck! The ref counts, Roode lets off, and Riddle sputters. Ziggler tags in, he brings Riddle up to scrape laces off his face.

RKO for Ziggler!! The Viper struck to remind everyone who the champions are! And Riddle apologizes for not listening again. Will the champions have to be very careful with so many teams targeting them?

 

Rey and Dominik Mysterio talk backstage.

Kevin Owens finds them and wants to let Rey know he values his opinion. He’s looked up to Rey his entire career, and he wants Rey to believe him. Rey says sorry, he’s a bit busy, Adam Pearce made a match. Kevin just wants Rey to say he believes him. Yeah, Rey does believe him. They can talk more later. The music hits, Rey and Dom go to the ring! And waiting for them is Adam Pearce himself. We learn what this is about, after the break!

 

Veer Mahaan is coming.

A million dollar arm and bottomless aggression make him priceless, but when will he prove his worth?

 

Raw returns and…

Pearce has a mic to tell Rey & Dom thanks for joining him. But before getting into why, let’s talk Survivor Series in two weeks. Since 1987, we’ve seen history making moments. The debut of The Undertaker, The Rock and The Shield! And this is the one time a year where the champions of Raw take on the champions of SmackDown, culminating in the 5v5 elimination matches, where one-by-one, superstars are eliminated until only one team stands victorious. That match alone has propelled like Roman Reigns and Randy Orton into superstardom, and the pressure this year is even bigger. Team Raw has to live up to last year’s team, the clean sweep of 5-0!

That is why Rey & Dom are here, and that brings Pearce to his announcement. It’s almost embarrassing to admit this, but when the roster for Team Raw was announced, he couldn’t help but feel like he made a huge mistake. He’ll explain. Every member of Team Raw is a former WWE Champion. Every member, except for Dominik. That is an issue for Pearce. He sees the confusion and wants them to listen. Dom has a ton of potential, but Team Raw needs to win. So don’t get him wrong. Dom, as of right now, you are still on Team Raw. That is, unless he loses right now to… To how? Pearce leaves before anyone comes out! Rey tells Dom it’s fine, but then it’s BOBBY LASHLEY!!

Raw Survivor Series Team Qualifier: Dominik Mysterio w/ Rey Mysterio VS Bobby Lashley w/ MVP!

The All Mighty makes a return to action, and Montel Vontavius Porter makes a return to television! Will the Hurt Business get back on the right track destroying Dominik? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns, the bell rings and Lashley stares down Dom. They tie up, Lashley puts Dom in a corner but lets off as the ref counts. Lashley taunts Rey, Dom gets a headlock! Lashley powers up to SLAM Dom down, then runs to run Dom over! Lashley glares at Rey, brings Dom up and puts him in a corner. Lashley goes corner to corner to RAM into Dom! Lashley brings Dom up and reels him in for a suplex! Lashley holds Dom up but Dom fights free with knees! Dom baits Lashley into a corner, slips out and ROCKS Lashley with a forearm! Dom shoulder sin, throws another forearm, then goes up top to CROSSBODY! But Lashley catches him!

Dom gets free again, baits Lashley in again and dumps him out! Lashley lands on his feet but Dom PLANCHAS! Lashley catches Dom again, pop shim around to a fireman’s carry and Dom flails, but he still gets POSTED! Lashley snarls, stalks Dom and Pearce watches backstage. Lashley puts Dom in the ring, looms over him, and Dom can only flounder to ropes. Lashley stands on Dom, the ref counts and Lashley lets off. Lashley brings Dom up for the COMPLETE SHOT! Rey coaches Dom but it’s no use, the HURT LOCK is on! Dom flails, but Lashley won’t even let him tap! Lashley KNEES and CLUBS Dom, then slides him out to the floor!

Lashley paces, wanting a count out victory. Dom writhes, Lashley gets impatient and goes back out. Lashley looms over Dom, drags him back up, fireman’s carries again but Rey pulls Dom down! Lashley BOOTS Rey down! And then fireman’s carries to POST Dom again! The ring count passes 5 of 10 but Lashley puts Dom in at 7. Lashley aims from a corner, Dom staggers up, into a SPEAR!! But Lashley doesn’t even care to cover, the ref checks on Dom but then Lashley drags Dom up into the HURT LOCK!! Dom taps, Lashley wins!

Winner: Bobby Lashley, by submission (joins Raw’s Men’s Survivor Series team)

The All Mighty shows no mercy, and now Pearce has a team of all former world champions. Will Lashley be the ace Pearce needs so that Raw sweeps again?

 

The Alpha Academy prepares backstage.

Chad Gable wants Otis to really focus on these concepts. Seth Rollins comes by, and he knows Otis has his match with Big E. Love to see it. They’re going to show Big E he is NOT the face of Raw. But while they’re all here, can Rollins asks? What do they think about Kevin Owens? Rollins is right, right? Kevin is scum, right? Gable says Rollins has come to the right guy. Gable just graduated with a Masters Degree and perfect 4.0 GPA. Now having said that, Gable can categorically confirm that Kevin IS an enormous liar! Much in the same vain as Aaron Rodgers. How disgusting. And Big E? No, he does not have what it takes to be the face of Raw. But he’ll learn.

Tonight, the Master hands out free lessons, courtesy of the Alpha Academy. Rollins loves it! And knew they’d see things his way. But gorilla is the other way. But will Big E be the one teaching a lesson here tonight?

Big E VS Chad Gable w/ Otis!

Raw returns and the Alpha Academy make their entrance. The bell rings, Gable and Big E circle, tie up, and Gable waistlocks. Gable headlocks, spins, hammerlocks, spins Big E to a cravat, then shifts to a wrench and wristlock. Big E wrenches and wristlocks back, but Gable rolls, bridges, and handsprings to wrench again. Gable whips, Big E reverses but Gable goes up and over. Things speed up. Gable ducks and jumps and Big E hurdles to hit Gable with a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO! Big E drags Gable to the apron and CLUBS him on the chest over and over! Big E goes to the apron, takes aim, and APRON SPLASHES! Gable sputters and Big E wants to check the sternum. Cover, TWO!

Big E keeps cool and he brings Gable up. Big E puts Gable on the top rope but Gable elbows back. Gable then rolls back, but Big E elbows him away. Gable blocks a boot, puts that leg in the ropes and then hits a DRAGON SCREW on the other! Gable gets that leg and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Another KNEE JAMMER! Then he YANKS the leg, and hits a SPINNING TOEHOLD! Otis cheers Gable on as he wrenches Big E’s foot. Big E clubs but Gable YANKS the leg again. Big E hobbles, Gable CHOP BLOCKS! Gable runs to CHP BLOCK again! Big E falls but gets up again, only for Gable to run again. Big E sends Gable out for a moment of reprieve, but Gable returns fast!

Big E catches Gable, but Gable turns things into HIS Belly2Belly! Gable goes to a corner, climbs up top, and MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Big E gets up but Gable throws forearms. Gable runs, but Big E scoops! Gable slips off and throat chops! Then he rams Big E into a corner, for the CHAOS THEORY!! Bridging cover, TWO!! Big E escapes and Otis grows frustrated. Gable shouts, “FOR THE ACADEMY!” Gable goes to Electric Chair Lift Big E?! He gets him up but Big E clubs free and pushes Gable to a corner. Gable dodges, but runs into the Urenag-E! Big E brings down the straps and fans fire up. Gable staggers up into the scoop, BIG ENDING! Cover, Big E wins!

Winner: Big E, by pinfall

But Otis gets in and stares down with the champ. The ref keeps the peace but Big E dares Otis to do something. Will The Dozer get his chance to run full steam at the Powerhouse of Positivity?

 

Kevin Owens pleads his case again.

Big E, Rey Mysterio, and this locker room leader matter to Kevin.  Kevin wants to ask if R-Truth believes in him. Truth does believe in KO. And in Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the monsters under the bed. They spoke to him. And that leprechaun in the hood! Truth saw him! And Truth believes the earth is flat, but round in certain parts. Kevin sighs and leaves as Truth goes on about Mermen and Mermaids. Can Kevin find someone who believes he’s a changed man? Or has he simply burned too many bridges, and there’s no going back?

 

Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville meet with the Raw Women’s Division.

They thank everyone for being here, and Sonya knows they know about the five chosen women. Congratulations to Carmella, Queen Zelina, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan & Bianca Belair. They decided to make a friendly competition among the five, and the winner gets a chance at The Man, Becky Lynch, for the title. Liv is so excited! This is the opportunity she’s been hoping for! “Doudrop” Piper Niven speaks up to ask Sonya that when they announced the team, Piper tried to be cool about this so we didn’t have to do this here. But why wasn’t Piper included? Instead of, say, Bianca Belair. Bianca had her title opportunity, but she crashed ‘n’ burned. Oof…

Becky’s moved on from Bianca, why hasn’t Bianca moved on from Becky? Wow, first of all, who does Doudrop think she’s talking to? Pearce keeps the peace, and management felt this was the best decision. Well if they’re all speaking their minds, Dana Brooke wants to know why she wasn’t considered. And Liv has been waiting? Dana’s been overlooked than every single one of them! Time they show her some respect! Nikki A.S.H. wants to talk about team worthiness, and has actually BEEN champion. Oh boohoo. Quite the fall from grace, then. It’s hard to stay up at the top. Especially when it’s so much fun looking down on you from up here.

Rhea still defends Nikki. If Mella talks to her like that again- Wait, everyone, hold on! The decisions are all final! But who wins out of the Fatal 5 to take on Big Time Becks?

 

WrestleMania is heading back to Dallas, Texas!

It was back in 2016 that Dallas broke the attendance record, and had a huge night all its own. But now, WrestleMania 22 is going to be so big, it’ll be TWO NIGHTS! April 2nd and 3rd, get ready to see all the stars shine in AT&T Stadium!

 

Backstage interview with the Mysterios.

Kevin Patrick asks Rey how Dom is doing, and it would seem Dom suffered a neck strain. He’ll be alright, but what we just saw was BS. Rey knows people are questioning Kevin’s integrity, but we should question Pearce’s! Dom was announced to be part of the team! If Pearce wanted Dom out of the match, he could’ve just done it! But it seems The All Mighty isn’t here to win, he’s here to do damage, and he just did that to Rey’s son. Kevin leaves, Austin Theory sneaks a selfie! Theory aside, will Rey look to take this up with management?

 

WWE 24/7 Championship: Reggie VS Drake Maverick!

To keep the slippery sommelier from getting away again, Rockstar Spud has Reggie in the ring! Will the best laid plans still fail when they’re 1v1? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Maverick makes his entrance. The title is raised, and the bell rings on this very conventional match. The two tie up, go around, Reggie puts Maverick on the ropes. The ref counts, Maverick turns things around and ROCKS Reggie! Then CLUBS him down! Cover, ONE! Maverick scowls, Reggie ROCKS him with haymakers! Reggie EuroUppers, whips Maverick to ropes, but Maverick reverses. Reggie goes Matrix under the lariat! Then handsprings, handsprings again and dropkicks Maverick down! Maverick flounders, Reggie throws off his suit jacket! Reggie runs corner to corner to handspring clothesline!

Maverick falls, but R-Truth and a ref come out. He’s clearly waiting for this to end to pounce, but the Hurt Business pounces on him first! Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin mug Truth at the ramp, Reggie gets distracted and Maverick rolls him up! Maverick wins!!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

But Akira Tozawa betrays Maverick and rolls him up! Tozawa wins!!

Winner: Akira Tozawa, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

The Hurt Business throw Truth into the ring then go after Maverick! And Reggie! Tozawa is wary of them, but he doesn’t see Corey Graves coming!? Graves rolls Tozawa up, and wins?!?!

Winner: Corey Graves, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Graves has the first title in a long time! But Byron Saxton rolls Graves up! BYRON WINS!!

Winner: Byron Saxton, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Byron has his first title EVER! This is historic! But then Maverick rolls Byron up, and he wins it back!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Rockstar Spud is a two-time champion in one night, but then he sees the Hurt Business coming for him! He gets in the ring, where Reggie hits him with a CORKSCREW CROSSBODY! Cover, Reggie wins the title back!

Winner: Reggie, by pinfall (NEW WWE 24/7 Champion)

Well, back to square one for Maverick’s team as Reggie flips right out of the ring! The chase continues, will anyone keep Reggie down for long?

 

Becky Lynch heads to the ring!

The Man comes around to Louisville because she wants to see who’s coming for her gold next. Of course, she’ll be taking on Charlotte Flair in Champion VS Champion, will she be able to focus on one match-up while learning of another? Will these five be able to work as a team after fighting as every woman for herself?

Raw Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 5: Rhea Ripley VS Liv Morgan VS Bianca Belair VS Zelina Vega VS Carmella!

Raw returns and Piper walks over to Bianca. Bianca says she has no time for this. Well that’s Piper’s problem, too. After being drafted to Raw and only here for three weeks, Bianca loses, only to get another opportunity? Piper and the other women- No no no, Piper is clearly speaking for just herself. The EST heads out, will Piper be right about Bianca dropping the ball again?

Out next is the Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE, who puts on her protective mask. Then Liv, Queen Zelina and Rhea Ripley make their entrances, in that order. Bianca calls Becky out from the ring, but Mella and Zelina throw her out and attack! The bell hasn’t rung, this isn’t a match yet, but Rhea RAMS Mella into barriers! Liv is after Zelina but Zelina RAMS her into the apron! Bianca bounces Vega off the desk! Becky says this is why no one can beat her. The chaos continues, referees rush out to stop the brawl, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns, the brawling has stopped and the five women get in the ring. The bell rings, Mella FABULOUS Kicks Liv down and Zelina kicks Bianca. Mella goes after Rhea, Bianca throws Zelina out and Rhea does the same to Mella. Fans fire up as Rhea and Bianca are face to face, but then Zelina and Mella attack from behind. Rhea trips Mella to rain down fists, Bianca DECKS Zelina and goes out after her! Mella gets to ropes, Rhea clubs her out. Bianca kicks Zelina around, Rhea ROCKS Mella. Bianca sends Zelina into apron, Rhea sends Mella into barriers. Becky talks trash to Bianca for losing four times total.

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the Raw Women’s Championship)

Becky is the most surprised of anyone that Liv just won! She’s already playing it off as a lucky win, but will Liv get lucky again when she takes Becky on? Becky raises the belt on top of the desk but Liv gets on the desk to stare her down. Becky backs down for now, but will she have no choice but to admit Liv is a threat?

 

Big E walks the halls.

Seth Rollins comes in and says he comes in peace. Rollins has his match with Kevin, but he just wants to understand where Big E’s head is at. There is no way anyone can believe the words that come out of Kevin’s mouth. Yes, Rollins did pop Big E, but it is much better to trust the devil you know than the one you don’t. Big E tells Rollins that he doesn’t trust either of them. But Rollins can bet his sweet cheeks that Big E will be ringside to make sure this all goes smoothly. Both men laugh sarcastically and then Rollins heads out. Will the Visionary be able to keep his focus on the Prizefighter when the world champion is ringside?

Big E heads to the ring!

Just as promised, here he is! He’ll be heading to Survivor Series to take on Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, but will Big E have plenty to think about with tonight’s main event?

Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens!

Raw returns and… Austin Theory comes out? He’s vlogging on his phone as he heads to ringside, and gets a selfie with Byron, Jimmy and Corey. He wants one with Big E but Big E slaps the phone down! Theory doesn’t appreciate that, but he walks away and Rollins makes his entrance. Rollins gets a mic to say, “Look, I know I’ve got a match with Kevin Owens right now, but there’s something I gotta get off my chest before we get to this. This is important, this is important. This has been weighing on me, weighing on my conscience really for an entire week.” Rollins takes a moment, then says he knows he came out here and called Kevin a liar. That is true, but Kevin isn’t the only one lying.

Rollins tells Big E that what happened last week was a plan between him and Kevin. He’s sorry, it was a plan they came up with weeks in advance. Rollins and Kevin said they needed to make Big E understand he’s not the face of Raw. Rollins took the shot, Kevin took advantage. Trust the devil you know, now the one you don’t. Rollins is coming clean because unlike Kevin, Rollins is a man of integrity! Kevin storms out and Rollins keeps defending he’s the one telling the truth. Kevin fires off hands on Rollins! The ref rushes in, but Kevin and Rollins spill out of the ring! Rollins runs away into the crowd! Kevin dares Rollins to get back in the ring, and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again, and this match finally happens! Kevin and Rollins fire off hands, Kevin gets the edge and he CLUBS Rollins all around the ring. Kevin CHOPS and CHOPS and whips, but Rollins holds ropes to bail out again. Kevin grows frustrated, so he goes out after Rollins again. They go back in, Rollins stomps Kevin down, then runs.

Rollins bounces off, Kevin CANNONBALLS onto knees! Rollins RAMS Kevin into the announce desk! Rollins gets in the ring to avoid the count while Raw goes to break.

Kevin changes up to forearms, Rollins sobats! And front kicks! Kevin blocks a kick to KICK the leg, then hits a DDT! Kevin gets to ropes while Rollins sits up in a daze. Rollins staggers up, Kevin hobbles over and fireman’s carries. But the ribs bother him! Rollins slips off to SLINGBLADE!

Raw returns once again and both men are down again. Kevin slowly crawls to a corner, and Rollins goes to the other. Fans rally up for Kevin and Rollins gets mad hearing that.

Kick low but still no Stunner as Rollins hits him in the back!

DREAM CRUSHER ELBOW!! Kevin flops out of the ring and leans against steel steps. Rollins slithers out the side, Kevin staggers around.

And rain down more fists!

Referees and even producers try to stop Kevin, but he storms off in a rage. What does this mean for the Prizefighter’s attempts at reforming himself?


My Thoughts:

Another mixed bag episode for Raw here. We got great action for the most part, but a lot of story elements were the usual mess we’re stuck with because of Vince and the talent cuts and all the problems that’ve been building for awhile. The promo with all the women wrestlers on Raw basically pointed out the flaws, except I don’t think WWE meant for it to be meta. How dumb of them to one, announce these teams online over the weekend, and then two, make it a situation of “oh no~, can they coexist~?” For that matter, that’s all the teams, the men and the women. But in the case of the women, they don’t even put the tag champions together?

The Fatal 5 was still great, but obviously they’re giving us Bianca VS Piper, and I knew Liv was winning with her confronting Becky backstage last week. I just wish the order of things were different. There was some point where they could’ve done this differently but Vince and team missed it and now it’s a bit sloppy. Same with the men, where Dom was on the team but then they have him lose that spot to Lashley, and Rey is the one to point it out without it meant to be meta. This better not turn into another case where the McMahons come out, apologize, blame someone else, and then give us a small stretch of good before returning to right where we are now.

The 8 Man Tag was still a really good opening match. I was hoping Styles, Omos & the Dirty Dawgs would become a faction but I guess Omos & Styles are still part of the tag division so they didn’t get along with the Dawgs and then turned on them. There is probably a big contender’s match in the works, and honestly, I don’t want Omos & Styles again. The Profits should win, but no team turns. Orton is still who he is with Riddle, the Profits are still who they are, we just get a really good title match between Face teams. WWE needs to spice things up, so simply going away from Face(s) VS Heel(s) for one match would help.

While Reggie VS Maverick as a traditional match looked rather lame, I actually really liked that we got another title hot potato moment. No offense to Reggie, but I kinda wish Maverick kept the title at the end there. The 24/7 Championship stuff needs spicing up and that would mean someone else has the belt for a stretch. Maverick’s lost so much in the grand scheme of the WWE, him having a lengthy reign would be nice. And for the most part, the story of the world title and Kevin Owens’ morality was a good thread through the night. Kevin definitely seemed desperate to find someone who accepted him as a Face, and him finding no one basically made him snap and go back to Heel.

Kevin and Rollins had a great match, the way Big E messed Kevin up was fairly clever, and I really hope they give us a Triple Threat title match. Too bad TLC was cancelled in favor of #DayOne, that’s a bunch of BS.

My Score: 8.1/10

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.

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.

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 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.

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

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

  • 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 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?

The Don Callis Family speaks.

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
